Of Scarlett Johansson & Nation-building...

Technorati tags: , , ,

At a glance, the headline of the article clipped below would probably lead the reader to think the article is about being sexy, like Scarlett Johansson. Or at least that's what Walski thought until he took the time to actually read the article.

In all honesty, it's this kind of out-of-the-box thinking that gives Walski hope that this nation does have some hope left, amidst the doom and gloom that occupies the news sphere of our every day existence.

That said, it's sometimes difficult to take such fresh thinking to the next level when everything about how we operate says "in the box, and don't you dare even look beyond the four corners". This happens to be true not only in the government sector, but across the Malaysian homegrown private sector as well.

A great article and a good way to look at solving problems from a different perspective, nevertheless.

Sexy like Scarlett Johansson

I was having severe writer’s block — eight hours in front of the computer with no words written. So I decided to watch one of my all-time favourite movies, “The Prestige”.

I had watched it many times before but in the state where my mind was not at its freshest, it was not Hugh Jackman or Christian Bale who grabbed my attention. It was Scarlett Johansson.

You can bet your money that the reason is because of her sheer beauty and unique sexiness, on top of her acting skills, of course.

Then weirdly my mind wandered off a little, to a more serious question. A question I have always pondered about, but could never quite get a truly accurate answer.

The question is, dear all, how do we make the nation-building agenda sexy? Scarlett Johansson-like sexy.
