Multiple gas explosions in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan at about midnight Thursday and early Friday , killed at least 25 people and injuring 267 others.

Four firefighters were among the dead and the death toll was likely to rise.

The explosions sparked a massive inferno with flames shooting up to 15 storeys into the air that tore through the city’s Cianjhen district.

The blast shook buildings like there was an earthquake, toppling small shops and throwing cars flying into the air.

One street had been split along its length, swallowing six fire engines and other vehicles.

Officials said that the fires were believed caused by a leak of underground propene pipelines.

Propene is a petrochemical material not intended for public use, but the cause and source of the leak were not immediately clear.

The National Fire Agency says on its website that one of the fires, along a 10-meter (33-foot) stretch of gas line, was still burning into midday Friday.

More than 1,100 had evacuated overnight.

Here are some photos of the aftermath….

These breathtaking photographs show that some animals take no chances when it comes to safety in numbers. Seen in every shape and size, from huge herds of wildebeest to colossal colonies of penguins, these creatures have no qualms when it comes to the issue of personal space.

Often seen during mass migration, these enormous groupings can be found in countries all over the world and prove an effective method of keeping themselves safe from predators. (Yahoo News)

Robbers tried to blast open an ATM machine using homemade bombs in Bukit Beruntung.

The bomb caused the ceiling at the bank’s service area to collapsed, breaking glass windows and damaged the bank’s several other machine.

Anyway the robbers ran away after the explosion, maybe due to the security alarms.

No money were stolen from the bank.

The case has been classified as causing mischief by fire under Section 435 of the Penal Code.

Structural damages were estimated to cost about RM500,000.

From Anwar’s Behrang Move To His Kajang Move

I learn about Behrang Move this morning…
MZM

Behrang Move?

I was very surprised to read about it.

I did not know it was Behrang Move that caused Perak to fall back to BN.

Well, Anwar and his gang blamed UMNO for what had happened, accusing that UMNO bought Perak Aduns to control Perak.

And of course, I had no idea that Anwar was the one who was behind the Behrang Move.

After the Behrang Move failed, Anwar is now trying to use Kajang Move to force Selangor’s MB (Chief Minister) to resign his post so that Anwar’s own wife, Wan Azizah can become the new Selangor MB!

And they are all from the same political party, PKR where Anwar, his wife and his daughter are the bosses.

First Anwar ordered Kajang PKR ADUN Lee Chin Cheh to resign his seat so that Anwar himself can contest for the seat.

Actually he wanted to become the MB, but due to his court case, he could not contest in the Kajang Dun re-election.

So he replaced himself with his wife, Wan Azizah so that his wife will become the MB on his behalf.

It sounds like a movie plot, isn’t it?

Well, but it really happens; only in Anwar’s PKR!

So what is going to happen next?

Will Selangor fall to UMNO’s hands too because of Anwar’s greediness?

If so, Anwar and his gang will surely blame UMNO as the culprit as he always does…

And if he is still in control of PKR, I will not be surprised if he’ll launch more ‘moves’ in order to achieve his greedy dreams for power!

KLCC Balik Kampung?

WP_20140727_007

On my way home yesterday, my father drove on this part of a highway where on other days I can see the Petronas Twin Towers clearly on my right.

But yesterday I realised that the Petronas Twin Towers had disappeared!

I wonder, did the twins went back to their hometown to celebrate Eid with their family?
