No Answer Is Bad Answer

Remember the days when were in school, and the exam season comes, the best tip any teacher would give is never to leave any questions unanswered. Even if you don't know the answer, just shoot on something. In this case, its much easier if the exam has objective answers where you have a choice selection of 5 possible answers namely A, B, C, D and E. Whichever one you shoot, you stand a 20% chance to a correct answer but if you were to leave it empty, you score nothing.
That is why "no answer is bad answer". In a conversation, when asked a question, by not answering brings danger of a "bad answer". Or if you deliberately divert the question to something else, it is as good as unanswered. It becomes even more dangerous when the question thrown to you is a sensitive question. By answering "yes", you may be admitting to something bad or embarrassing. So, you choose not to answer. But by not answering, it may mean that you are trying to hide something. And the truth deters you from saying "no".
You can't say yes and neither can you say no. So, you divert the question! But "no answer is bad answer". By not answering the question, you leave a vacuum for assumptions and imaginations. And sometimes, such imaginations can run very very wild and far away from the actual truth. The story, so far twisted, that is brings wrong judgement unto the question.
But then again, there is also a type of brainees where the answer is a "No, I didn't do it" but yet choose not to answer directly. They would rather explain why there is no point of giving an answer than to just give the answer! It could be a simple "no" and be freed from all implications.
For me, in such conversations, I get really annoyed with "no answers". I want to hear a "no" but I just can't get one. I fear a "yes" but even that I don't get. So, that leaves me to my imagination and the human psychological mind will naturally lean towards the negative "yes". Which means now I automatically fall into a depression mode because the answer, for the moment, is a "Yes, I did it".
Now wouldn't be it so much easier to just answer the simple question? Yes?

Japan Super GT 2008 - Hankook

For me, this year's Japan Super GT event isn't as exciting as last year's. Probably due to the fact that I am only to cover the Hankook event rather than the race, which means, I don't get to shoot the cars and the babes! My assignment started on Saturday, covering the arrivials of the Hankook guests (all from China and the management team from Korea) at KLIA and spent the whole Sunday at Sepang Circuit. Then, Monday and Tuesday were tours.

The podium stage at Hankook's VIP Lounge.

The Sony!!!

That's me in my Hankook uniform.

The back part of the uniform...very nice. Much much nicer than last year's "t-shirt"!!!

The Circuit Safari where the buses drive onto the race track with the race cars rushing in from behind. Great experience!

Our Hankook Race Queens at the Hankook VIP Lounge.

Having their lunch...

The Grid Walk...where people can get onto the tracks to take close-up pics of the cars, drivers and babes.

An the "race" has started. From left : V-Ming, BabyKJ and me!!!

I got No.2

And the "mixed up" podium arrangement. V-Ming was first and I was second. Guess who got third? Hahaha....

Babyboss with KJ.

Hmmm...exactly which way to the VIP Lounge???

Tour at the Royal Palace. This is my first time there!

Then to Karyaneka. Also my first time there!!!

And finally, last destination for Monday's tour...KLCC.

Tueday started with Royal Selangor where thouands were spent on buying pewter sets.

Then to Genting Highlands where tens of thousands were invested at the Casino. I witness a China lady taking out RM3,000 solid cash and changed for chips. She lost everyting in 5mins! But I guess its ok for her since she has another stack in her handbag!!!
Aha...the best part...buffet lunch. I had Tepanyaki Chicken, Satay Chicken and Chicken Rice chicken (pic above).
