Ukulele : A musical Hawaiian string instrument, introduced by the Portuguese. It is a subset of the guitar family of instruments.

So what's so interesting about this Ukulele? For me, it's an interesting instrument which produces different type of interesting melody. Check this video out on how Jake Shimabukuro played Bohemian Rhapsody using Ukulele in one of the TED conference in 2010.

Remark: Jake Shimabukuro is a ukulele virtuoso known for his complex finger work. His music combines elements of jazz, rock and pop.

Meaning-ful or less Job

Job. Each adult person should have a proper job to earn money in order to fulfill all the basic needs of human (e.g foods, home, clothes etc). Yeah, they should have a proper one but nowadays we seldom hear about adults earn money from easy ways. 

Easy way : Stealing, conning, "ragut", pyramid scheme, etc.

Work! Work! Work!
I have a huge respects for adults who endures hardship for the sake of earning halal income (working at fast food restaurant, pasar malam, farm, contractor, etc,,)

But how about a job which earn massive amount of money but not really useful.

Again, useful in my context is a non-critical job which means if the job doesn't exist people can still live as normal without any hiccups. 

A food for thought: a superstar footballers in UK earn a massive salary as high as  £ 180,000 per week which means they can buy a new Mercedes every week. Whereas a nurse in UK earn roughly around £ 250 per week.  

But which is more important, a nurse or a footballer? I leave that obvious question for you guys to contemplate and answer.

Phobia : is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared stimulus. When the fear is beyond one's control, and if the fear is interfering with daily life, then a diagnosis under one of the anxiety disorders can be made.

Example, a person who has been bitten by a dog during his/her tender years, might fear of dog for the rest of his life. This can also be applied on someone who has experienced a near-death car accident. Due to emotional distress, he might not be able to drive a car forever. So different people may have different phobia: some of it phobia against closed place, insects, snakes etc.  

I also know someone who has a phobia against a "Favored opponent" whenever he play Starcraft II. When this occurred, he will say "Favored lagi bile nak lawan nubs ni" - or in English: "Wtf? Again another favored opponents, we need more Noob NA player".

Remark: Starcraft 2 is a sequel to the award-winning 1998 video game StarCraft, the game was released worldwide on July 27, 2010.
