Malaysian Women Caned for Having Sex

It does not get better than this.

Malaysia caned three Muslim women for having pre marital sex.

In case you are wondering, no Malaysia is not a country in the Middle East. It is in South East Asia, due north of Singapore.

Still no idea? What about Sepang F1? That is the place.

Malaysia whom have a majority of around 55% Muslim had a dual legal system, one practicing Syariah law, and another adopted from Common Law of the English.

And apparently, having pre-marital sex is a crime, punishable by imprisonment and caning, as well as fine.

And Malaysia, increasingly leaning towards conservative Islamic values, caned these three women, and they became the first women to be caned in Malaysia.

Well, this is a religious matter, and not that we can say much, but caning really had no place in the modern world.

Except maybe in BDSM community.

But, hey, caning for having sex?

Shouldn't everyone have the freedom to have sex? Why should anyone be forced down their throat to follow the religion?

And mind you, those born Muslim in Malaysia had no right to leave the religion, or so it seems.

I don't know what to say. You got any opinion?

And if it makes you feel better, the four men were also caned for the same offences.

What do I Really Want in a Relationship, In Love, Is Actually Nothing

The Valentine's Day is coming in a few hours. It "was" a day to remember St. Valentine, which later turns to a day to cherish love, then a day for businesses to earn enormous dough.

Nevermind that.

Valentine's, if it is a day to cherish love, then maybe we should look at what love really is. But this is too hard even for the most experienced lovers. So, maybe next time.

For me, for a relationship to work, then love must be there. But for the love to continue to burn, it requires more than just a few candles on the Valentine's. It requires us to know what our other half really wants. What our other half really need.

My love often lament that she can never get a gift that i really like. And that i can never tell her what i had wanted.

But in reality, i wanted nothing that money can buy. I don't need anything that i already cannot get. There is no gift that a shop can offer me.

What i wanted is for my love to be beside me all the time.

For me to feel comfortable in her embrace.

For me to feel at home all the time i am with her.

For her to understand my feeling.

When i am happy, i just wanted to tell her and let her know.

When i am sad, all she need to do is just to pull me into her bosom, no words needed.

there is nothing that you need to give me, except to be with me, without condition, but with love.

i really, really, don't need anything else, because all that i really need, you have given me...

and love from you, is all i need.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone...hopefully you have a Love to cherish, for eternity..
