A long post. Skip if you are a lazy reader.
I have a lot of things running in my mind right now. I am exhausted. Tired. For the past few days I did a lot of thinking, messing with my flabby, flaccid brain. No I am not quitting this blog like NoktahHitam hahahahaha! (He’s back with vengeance anyway) Some of things are too personal; I feel it should stay that way.
Oh, something weird just happened. There were lots of bees flying outside the office. No idea where they came from and why they were here. What you think the bees were doing? I read somewhere on the internet on frogs and cockroaches ‘running away’ from the area before the earthquake happened. (Now suddenly Hoobastank’s Running Away and Crawling in the Dark are playing in my skull.. ) I managed to take some photos. Now imagine the bees swarming your body.. and feast on it.
Attack of the Bees!
So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
Can’t really see.. but check out the ‘black dots..’
I’ve been crawling in the dark looking for the answer
So many things happened in this month – May. Disasters like in Myammar and Sichuan, China. Yesterday earthquakes detected in Sumatra, previous day in Sabah??! Last night I heard they experienced tremors in OUG, Puchong, Cheras areas?
We are lucky a lot. Malaysia do not have any natural disaster happening so far (yet) except for the tsunami that happened in 2004. Even then we realized that this nation is no where ready to cope with an emergency resulted from a big scale calamities. Just read on the internet how schools in China crumbling down like pieces of Lego structures because of the alleged shoddy works and sub-standard materials used for the buildings.
Being in the construction industry myself and having many friends in this field working in construction firms – some as design engineer in consultancy companies, supervisors or engineers on site for contractors companies, we get to know many things happening in the industry and I can tell you it is not very good and sometimes scary to know/hear.
I think many Malaysians should aware of the standard of works in Malaysia where it is an open secret that corruption is rampant in this industry. Things can be ‘settled’, what you built on site can be tweaked to suit your pockets and gullible clueless buyers will never find out. Things are built without exactly following the specifications and drawings, the list goes on and on. I had a gathering with bunch of friends last Saturday (my coursemates) and we talked about this and from the feedbacks, Malaysians are really lucky considering our structures are not really put to test 🙂 So the con-men can sleep soundly at night, counting the money they stolen from the people. Yes, we laughed about it. Ha! Ha! Ha! When you still can laugh about it.. why not?
Then we have political surprises like Tun Mahathir quiting Umno. Umno is going to self destruct anyway, (playing Mission Impossible self destruct message..) so we shall let them shoot themselves to death and we watch from afar. Mahathir is not the first ex-president of Umno to quit Umno. As we are all aware, Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Hussein Onn both died as non-Umno members. Only Tun Razak I think was still a member of Umno when he died. So, to some extent, it is quite a trend for ex-Umno presidents to quit Umno for one reason or another.
I extremely disappointed with TDM for what he said in Johor. Malaysians are sick and tired of race-based politics and we need to move on to people-based politics
Yes, many respect the old man. I respect him, personally. Then again, I think we should not be blind to what he did to this country, we paid a heavy price for the ‘developments’ he brought to Malaysia. This lady said it best, I quoted from Malaysiakini:
Dian Abdullah: Dr M, you have brought many developments to this country which I believe will give you a prominent place in the history of Malaysia. But I would like to point out along the way, you have forgotten the people who helped you to rule this country for 22 years. That’s right – we the people, citizens, all born here. You instigated racial disharmony and widened the gap for inter-religion understanding. You created an elite of corrupted and arrogant group that brought injustice to our everyday lives which have affected us greatly.
You belittled us and the sultans in whatever way possible to satisfy your lust for power and money. You controlled us like slaves and the voiceless without any rights to our freedom of speech and actions. Your actions also provoked Bapa Merdeka and Hussein Onn to resign and die outside Umno.
Now you have to lower yourself to accept your karma. There is absolutely no way you can enter Umno again. These monsters you created are the very same ones you moulded and placed in power. Now they are returning your kind deeds. If you can remember, when Bapa Merdeka and Hussein Onn resigned, Umno did not blink much. So who do you think you are that you can bring Umno down? Umno will cease to exist only when the middle and lower-class people decide enough is enough. Najib will be the last straw because that is his destiny.
So before anyone of you remind me of how many towers he built, how many race tracks, airports, how long, how tall, how big things he built please remember that
1. He used ISA like toilet paper when he’s in power.
2. He stifled the voice of educated masses. Remember AUKU? Aku Janji crap? Operasi Lalang?
3. He coined the Ketuanan Melayu crap. He made the Malays believe that who believed that the whole world was against the Malay race. Is there such a thing? He did no good to the race relations. He is solely responsible for making Umno a racist, bigoted party it is now.
4. He is a racist mustard. Now he is doing it again. His remarks in Johor on Saturday that Malays stood to lose much in the new political environment where non-Malays were unafraid to make demands. Dr Mahathir told the crowd of some 1,000 in Johor Baru that if Malays keep quiet they will lose their rights and other races will take over. What he is trying to do? What happened to his Bangsa Malaysia and Vision 2020 crap? It is utterly irresponsible for him to make those racist statement in Johor and once again, this is the kind of rhetoric Malaysians of all creed and color voted against in the last general elections.
5. He manipulated the judiciary, now proven by the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Lingam tape. He himself mentioned the judges lobbied for positions. Isn’t that illegal?
6. The list is long!!
So, just because he’s trying to portray himself as a hero now, please do not be so gullible to trust the old man. He is too smart, shrewd and cunning to do things selflessly. Sit back and think, what he will gain by doing all this shits. There’s more to this than meets the eye. I am not telling
ps: Karma is a funny thing. It has its way to get back at you. Be very careful. Karma is a bitch. Definitely.
pss: I love this song very much. I want to make love in the club. Anyone?
