The last question, and the worst thing our group does not have the chance to choose the topic...

With effect from January 2003, the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumet Affairs has made it compulsory for all original optical discs (CD, VCD, DVD, CDR, CDI, LD and MD) as well as cassettes and video tapes to be labeled with the ministry’s original label prior to being released into the market. Do you agree that such illegal action can be easily prevented? Discuss your views.

          How can you prevent yourself from watching illegal actions in today’s globalization that everything is at your fingertips? Will you blame your parents or the government which has made compulsory to label all the original optical discs that have been censored from illicit actions? The sources to view them are very huge and the widespread of pirate DVDs and CDs among the citizens that dirty animations are not being cut is also the main reason. Besides, it is not possible nowadays for cunning people to imitate the labels on the optical discs. Therefore, we strongly agree that illegal scene are still cannot be prevented easily.

          Internet is a sophisticated way to get on the net. Nowadays, our government possesses an extraordinary step to enhance the connection in our country by setting up a network coverage that covers from all corners of the country. Wifi and broadband manager are two common servers that provide internet connection whereby people can surf the web whenever they want. Thus, downloading and watching any latest movie in websites like tonton.com, youtube, and bittorent.com can be accessed just in an effortless way. Furthermore, a research made by Domestic Trade Centre proved that, about 70% of citizens in our country prefer to download any latest movies and videos while only 15% of them choose to buy optical device as their collections. Therefore, labeling the optical discs does not seem to be working in preventing illegal action since only minority of Malaysian purchase them. Downloading any entertainment from the web, somehow can lead to degradation of moral values because some of the aggressive parts in the movie are not being censored. The icing of the cake is that the government should control the usage of internet among the citizens strictly.

          Though the widespread news about labeling original optical disc by the government is published, most of the citizens are still choosing to buy pirate discs. Economic Malaysia Journal states that 99.1% of the citizens agree that price is the main issue for this matter. Usually, the price of the original optical disc is five times more expensive compared to pirate disc. Therefore, a lot of people are still able to watch illegal action from the pirate optical disc since the contents are not censored before they were sold. Rather than that, the availability of original optical disc is very limited where only certain places provide them compared to pirate ones. To prove that, famous Chinatown and popular Petaling Street are two of the most places to be visited by the citizens or even the foreigners. Besides providing a lot of unique and beautiful souvenirs, bootleg DVDs and CDs are very easy to be found. Malaysia is a well-known country yet this eyesore scenario is still happening.

Regrettably, irresponsible people who are expert in technology have misused their ability only to gain more money by imitating the original label of the optical discs illegally.  As a result, the buyers cannot identify whether it is original product or not. Try to imagine, if the underage teenagers buy the products from this irresponsible party such as movies or video games that contain banned action,  thus without parents’ guidance, they will easily get influenced by the negative values. In the meantime, they will absolutely practice those illegal actions in the real life due to the brainwashed by the dirty scenes. Global mass media is one of the sources of technology that is manipulated by the immoral people to carry out their illicit activity in order to form fake labels. In final consideration, these unethical activities prove that illegal action still cannot be prevented thoroughly.  Please bear in our mind that illegal animation, in fact, can be hidden bravery by the fearless man with the power of technology.

To put it laconically, other alternative ways should be implemented rather than labeling all original optical discs since this issue does not succeed to overcome illegal actions though it has been carried out about a decade ago. Please realize that people still have many sources to watch illicit scenes. Hence, we should find out the root for this problem that should be overcome rather than continuing what we have done so far to solve this matter.

Internet should be censored. Do you agree?

          It is quite shocking to know that almost 80% of immoral teenangers watch pornography online. Please realise that teenagers are going to govern the country sooner. Are we going to hope for another 20% of teens only to fill the legacy  of our nation, yet the citizens behave violently and impolitely? How can a country be developed in this kind of situation? Therefore, we strongly agree that internet must be censored to decline the social problems among teens. Not only that, the frequency of cyber crime can also be reduce as well as scaling down the outspread rumors which can destroy the lives of many people. 
          Porno videos are rampant and widespread with easily accesed by any person including curious teens who one day, act as the pillar of society and head of a country. Porno videos contain dirty actions with indecent gestures besides lewd whispering of the immoral pornographer which are able to greatly pollute the minds, so that people tend to watch them over and over again. Consequently, without a proper sexual education, teens that have been exposed to those ghastly images will apply to their partners since they are more inclined to absorb information regarding this matter. Pornography online, therefore, contribute to unwanted pregnancies among teens and the transmitting of various diseased sexually. Then, world will be like a hell with many illegel nippers where social ills or even sexual crimes will colour the world. Hence, censoring the internet must be implemented to reduce degradation of moral values among teenagers. 
          Cyber crime nowadays are very cunning which can be categorised as the most solemn crime. It is a downside effect when people become more expert in using the modern technology especially the internet that covers all coverage in this world in a small system. Computer hackers can be seen as an illustration in cyber crime. It takes just to intrude on people’s privacy and obtain an individual’s personal information. Other than that, social websites such as facebook, myspace and twitter enable peoples to interact among them by sharing their personal information, pictures, and activities in a public view. This chance is taken by crooks to treat peoples in a smart way whereby the internet users cannot detect their bad intention. Usually, this `hat people’ act as amiable people who target the users to be a new friend and then become a new victim. So, internet security should be improved in order to provide a much better guarantees protection from cyber crime in an internet worldwide.  
          A desire to know about a well-known person is one of the interests that normally happen in each individual. To illustrate, political figure’s lifestyle can be the victim of rumors in a split second as the internet is the latest invention that can control the world and interact with others in long distances. It gives a chance to everybody to create a homepage or blog and upload almost everything including their leaders’ apologue. They have freedom to add any comment and speak out against country’s development fearlessness. Unfortunately, billions of people from all over the world can access to these websites and thus, they will have bad impression about the politicians from the entries of the blog. This expectation can also brings negative view to the citizens too. No doubt, internet can be codified as the most powerful tool for free speech and contributes greatly to the dignity of  the country regarding to the rumors that can spread online and play a vital role in destroying the lives of many people. In final analysis, internet must be censored in order to prevent the readers from surfing the inappropriate websites. 
          In conclusion, the government should play their roles in order to control the usage of internet among the citizens by censoring unbeneficial websites. We believe that people can still alive and kicking without no access to certain websites. North Korea, People Republic in China and Saudi Arabia can still develop even numerous sites are heavily and strictly controled by their national government. Definitely, internet censorship is not that horrible to everyone.

Getting to know us~

We are not anonymous..

Hi, my name is Nik. First of all, I want to thank you so much as you are willing to google this blog. Next, a little bit about myself, I was born on 17 March 1993 with a name Nik Muhamad Amirusyaref Bin Nik Ghuyub. It is five times longer than my nick name. This name is given by my father and I don’t know whether he thinks or not how can I give name of my son soon.  Never mind, whatever it is, I am too proud with it due to its significant meaning that I need to build it in myself. My hometown is in Terengganu. I lived there since I was born until now. About my appearances, I am the tallest person in my tutorial group and some of my friends describe me as a shy and quite person but it is absolutely false. ‘Dont judge a book by its cover’. Lastly, now I am struggling to futher my study in medical field to realise my mother’s dream which is she wants to see me as a doctor in future. InsyaALLAH..........


~19 years ago a cute baby was born on 11th January 1993 in HUSM Kubang Kerian, Kelantan. Her parents 

were so excited at that time because she was the first baby girl they got. She is the fourth child out of five. Oh!!!!How lucky they are… Their daughter  is a simple person who lives in 

ordinary life but tries to give an extraordinary result in what ever she 

does…Sometimes, she will be a silent person[thinking for the futureJ] but sometimes she can be talkative too. From now on, she is a blogger instead of a silent reader!!!Apart from that, she likes 

to read comics especially Detective Conan and she loves to cooperate with her friend that share the same 

interest to collect all the series of the Detective Conan. Based on the observing, majority of the kids like to play with her. Due to that, she decides to be a pediatrician one day...INSYAALLAH…..If you do not know where you are going, any road will get you there at last.. Believe in ALLAH, 

everything will be fine...The icing of the cake was that this special person i

Nurul Farhana 
Binti Mohd Pua’at Zuzaki….



Proud to be a Muslimah,

Dear readers,
Always feel free to express yourself. I’m proud to be 
NurIzzati Fathin binti Ahmad Subki and I feel free to be myself. 3rd December is a special, historical day in my life and now, I’m 19 who is still studying, learning, and always enjoy for being myself. I have no specific 
hobby to be told, but I often do some activities which are beneficial to keep my health in the best condition. Being the eldest daughter is quite enjoyable. Usually, when I return back home during holiday, I feel like I am the apple of my siblings’ eyes because they will try to do what I ask for, tell me their experiences and even their top secrets! Well, actually, I miss them right now. Next, I am currently trying my best to achieve my dream in future, generally to be a successful lady someday. My advice, ‘learn the hard way, study the smart way’ (copied from my inspiring lecturer, Madam Sakinah Thomas). Words that may describe me are happy go lucky, amiable, simple, and active.
Okay, that is all from me.

That's me... erk,
