More at The Star Online and Malaysiakini

Notice none of the Ministers is from Sarawak (except the old face – Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui), the state that gave BN 30 seats during the election. Yes, some of the Deputy Ministers from Sarawak.. nothing to be proud of.. yawn….

Good thing is Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, one of the few politicians I respect a lot is in the list. The rest? Pretty much the same, old ministers still there, only switched their ministry. Pak Lah, are you deaf or still sleeping? The guy with two Muhammad aka Mike Tyson in his name still there!!!? Nazri Aziz is still given the license to bark?? Azalina Othman as Tourism Minister!!!!? Shafie Apdal?? (With so many screw ups on the shortage of goods, and funny pricing – cooking oil, flour, chicken, etc he is still there???), Hishammuddin? Are you joking? With his fetishes to short sharp weapon (read = keris) and all the ‘good’ things since he is became Education Minister, he is still there???? Oh wait, maybe because Malaysia now officially have a student that scored 21As? Wahhh!! That is so impressive!! Should go for Guinness World Records 🙂

That is it. ‘SAME SHIT DIFFERENT DAY,’ served by Pak Lah to Malaysians. Anyway I am very baik hati (generous/kind) today, so let’s give this new cabinet a chance. Let them prove their worth. After all we are giving Barisan Rakyat (BR) a chance. 🙂

Updated 3.30pm :

To congratulate Muhammad Muhd Taib for his comeback, this poster is specially done for him

    Hahaha.. want to smell your bau also can’t, you know why? Coz your great friends wouldn’t say much about you.. 🙁


  17. suituapui wrote on Mar 20, 2008 at 6:57 am

    Hello, drumsticks! Eee…later that bongkersz hot cos we’re using his comment box as our chatroom! Well, they couldn’t tell you much about my bau…cos they don’t know much about me. I just met cibol for lunch and bongkersz a bit longer…Wink! Wink! LOL!

    Well, I’m a horrible man who’s always horrible to people…and that’s telling u like it is, unlike some people!!! When he was here, I said, “U were in Tanjong, so u must have been a ‘pelajar cemerlang’ (outstanding student),” and he said, “No lah…cukup makan saja (Just good enough)!” And in your comment earlier, you said he was a straight A student!!! Hah! Liar! Liar!

    Well, cibol told me you all had a double date last nite, so hope you had a wonderful time – Cibol and bongkersz and you and Alice! Wakakakakakakaka!!!! ROTFLMAO! I told you I’m horrible, didn’t I?

    Drumsticks, if you want to know more about Suituapui, you know who to ask. *wink* LOL.

    –> ehem pat, how much you know? 😛 😛


  19. drumsticks wrote on Mar 20, 2008 at 2:41 pm

    ahhahaha.. don’t care.. his comment box memang for chatting ma.. but then hor.. he is kinda scary if he is angry.. :-s

    yeahh… false humility huh? lol.. next time don’t believe him!

    of coz had fun with Alice watching both of them.. sending psychic messages to each other..

    Here is an account of how matching there were last night..

    There’s this drink which comes in 2 cups specially for lovers and then Alice and I teased him to get that one for him and cibol. But of coz.. you know he wouldn’t choose that la..

    then then..

    He chose a drink.. without knowing that the drink is the exact one cibol ordered..

    Wahseh.. although he didn’t pick the lovers drink, but end up picking the same drink as cibol’s.. LOL

    then.. you can guess… he chose another drink.. didn’t want to be the same as cibol.. want to be Macho ma..

    –> haha! drumsticks, you never see me angry lah.. if you think you already saw it before, then when I am really angry…. jeng jeng jeng.. drinks only mar, we both have good taste in drinks, girls, music, bla bla.. can or not? 😛
