For Hollywood, they consult the US MOD to make their movies more realistic and to ‘rent’ hardware. For the US MOD, they consult Hollywood, especially the scriptwriters, to help predict possible terrorist plots. The movie, The Siege, in 1998 featured a terrorist attack in New York in 1998. Look what happened there 3 years later.
It is Hari Raya Haji holiday today but was working from home, at least for a few hours in the morning. Then it was lunch at the Batu Lanchang food court. We had ‘hawker junk food’ today: Chee Cheong Fun, Pasembur, Otak-otak and Chai Kuih. Both of us felt a little sick after that... *muak*
[Chee Cheong Fun: Fun with who?]
[Otak-otak: Penangites love food and they don’t care... so let’s cook their brains and make them square!]
