Please RSVP/Please Reply

Found a very interesting note on common English Errors on website.

RSVP stands for the French phrase Répondez s’il vous plaît (“reply, please”), so it doesn’t need an added “please.” However, since few people seem to know its literal meaning, and fewer still take it seriously, it’s best to use plain English: “Please reply.” It is a mistake to think that this phrase invites people to respond only if they are planning to attend; it is at least as important to notify the person doing the inviting if you cannot go. And no, you can’t bring along the kids or other uninvited guests.

So Please RSVP is actually redundant.. so many people have done that in real life!

OMG.. I'm totally in shock. Life is so fleeting.. a fellow press member (I was a journalist before) whom I was quite close to just passed away this morning in a polyclinic during check up! No details are known as yet..! I miss him already! He's totally funny, wacky and I'm so glad I knew him. Feels numb and wanna cry at the same time.

REST IN PEACE, APAI (means father in Iban)

The first announcement that I managed to google up was posted by Hakim Bujang, a fellow ex-reporter upon reading a fellow facebooker tagging Apai as 'The Late Apai'. RIP, Apai.. we'll miss you. Google up Rapaee Kawi for the news article on his passing.

H1N1 Flu

Dear Blog,

It's been three months since I've updated you.

Life has changed considerably.. the world has changed a lot since then.

Just recovered from a flu .. thank Goodness it was not H1N1 Flu!

Let's hope the global situation is under control and will not prolong for long.
