For Whom The Bell Tolls

“For whom the bell tolls and when it tolls if it tolls, the somber melodies emanating from the bagpipes and bugles will permeate through the gables and tympanums at Westminster and Buckingham, honouring a well respected queen in all her glorious majesty. But after the wreathes has been garlanded, and the pageantry dissipates, and the comforting congregation and dignitaries have all disperse, the silence will occur on Charles as the weight of the palace caves in onto his shoulders, and he will suddenly find himself all alone, with no one to turn to anymore than his paid servants and guards, and sandstone caryatids for company. And when night falls, the hums reverberating from the morning past will echo in his ears as silhouettes of Diana wails and screams through the maze of passages. Hopefully by then, he will realise that he should, within his ability and strength, spend a moment to reconcile his past misdeeds and fits of temper, because his honeymoon period is over and done with, and public duty now begins. That will form the backbone of his saving grace.”

Take It Easy

Take it easy. Let the anxiousness of our falling ringgit takes care of itself.
Ever since the beginning, everyone is aware that our government champions poor governance. Yet all the curses and words hurled at them and flying around in coffeeshop talks, dissipates when those who know chose not to defy the government, nor volunteer to assist those who can.
How we are today is the direct result of complacency, because most chose to care for themselves and convince themselves that nothing we say or do can change about situations and things. Which means, it is all up to us individually to bring the slightest change if we want to.
This problem is not only about foreign direct investments pulling out? It is also about our shortsighted government whom are not making the exporting of goods or services attractive enough and as their chief agenda. And lastly, some of us including our neighbours who chose to help, helps by converting their savings into other currencies and selling our ringgit. Complex?
