My Personal War On Terror

Photobucket

Terrorism is still alive and kicking even after 8 years since 9/11 happened. What's worst is that it has spread to Malaysia's neighbouring countries like Indonesia(JI) and the Philippines(Abu Sayyaf).

I was recently given the opportunity to indirectly fight the war against terror through technology and it involved me travelling to the coastal cities of Borneo.

My task was to set up several high tech equipment for survelliance purposes on several key coastal locations. That meant taking 3 different kinds of transportation on a daily basis - car, boat and helicopter to reach the sites. It is scary at times when we still lifted off in a heli during bad weather. What did not help was also the sweltering heat of the sun but what is there to do when work beckons.

Nevertheless, it never cease to amaze me that some of the places I go to are just absolutely gorgeous and dazzling.

All in all, I hope that my minor contribution played a key role in eradicating terrorism on Malaysian shores so that we can live without the threats of voilence but most importantly, so that we can dive peacefully in the Celebes Sea without the threats of terrorist basterds.
