Youngest blogger in the world? I am afraid we wouldn't know until later when you grow up a bit more although I have nominated you to the hunt for the youngest blogger in the world. You are going to have your yet to be born cousin as your competitor soon, plus there are others out there vying for the coveted title.
Anyway, that is not why I am publishing this today. The reason for this post today is because of your grandpa's profile photo. You see me having a genuine hearty laugh, definitely not artificial. So when I told my blogging friends I find it hard, in fact, almost impossible, to smile for the camera, they don't believe me. We will keep our secret of how your grandpa manage to get that very unusual photo till later.
Meanwhile I am going to upload another photo of your grandpa. See, not bright and laughing anymore. Not even a faint smile!! Why so glum? Well, in the very first place, your grandpa find it difficult to smile for the camera. Smile at a camera? That is a thing, not a person! How to smile at a thing, I ask you. Worst, there is bad news for our country. We have been suspecting things are not well in our Judiciary (courts, judges) ever since Tun Salleh Abas, Lord President, the head honcho of our Judiciary, was sacked, many says unfairly, by a tribunal headed by his inferior who stand to benefit by taking his place if Tun Salleh was sacked. That was in 1988. Then, much later, there came the VK Lingam tape expose which scandalized the lawyers and the nation. The Bar Council felt it had to get involved and organized a Walk they called Walk for Justice, and your grandpa too felt he had to get involved and took part. See the words on the blue baseball cap? It says "Walk for Justice." You can see lots of photos at Long March for Justice.
That is serious stuff Lewis. How to smile I ask you? Now....
Peter Chen's Secret WeaponYou were there, Lewis, when your grandpa's secret weapon was used, but there is no way you can see your grandpa because you were in your Mum's womb at My first granchild at his grandpa's 58th birthday gathering. Your grandpa's secret weapon was your uncles and aunties, also your pa and ma. You can read all about it there, but what you will not see there is that photo from which that handsome profile photo above (first one) was cropped from. Now there is no longer to keep it secret, let us upload the photo here for those curious to see it:
There you are, our secret weapon. And just in case your grandpa's blogging friends don't believe me, I put a red box around the place where I cropped the photo using that free and good Irfanview photo editor. Compare the two photos and see the similarity? Actually to be more accurate, I used Irfanview to crop that photo for the profile and I used PC Paint to put that red box to highlight the place in the original photo from which the profile photo was cropped.
