“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. 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?
“It is indeed tragic that there are amongst us who wilfully seek for the pardon of a convict now jailed by a nine man judiciary for the wrongdoings he has committed. Even more tragic are those who vouch for his comrade, another would-be jailbird now facing multiple charges, to be our next prime minister, in the event their party retains power in the upcoming general elections. This decision made by their party is akin to sidestepping and disrespecting the verdict of the judiciary and country laws, what-more counter-attacking our king, that they will free these individuals at whatever the cost, by the mandate begotten from the public, irregardless of royal non-interference. This unfortunate stance only aggravates and motivate non-partisanal rakyats to rise and bury their national representation forever, because of their intolerable above law attitude, believing that the judicial inference is nothing but political assassination. This also signals the end of Ismail Sabri as choice prime minister and their party member they downrightly intend to bury.”
“Beyond the pomp and pageantry of a life assumably well lived, ordinary citizens can never imagine her days emblazoned with court curtseys, chaplain and champagned hospitality, that every single fart will be echoed in the hallway, and every announcement like musical notes, can redirect movement of the share market. Yes, the few castles she shuffled year in and out are big and wide, but just like an ordinary citizens abode, try if we may, ambulating around it day in day out, for 365 days a year, for seventy years, never ever for once, ‘freely’ coming out to shop nor bargained, fetching her own kids to and from school nor have her occasional coffee breaks with some best friends, never ever paid a bill nor slippered a cockroach, never ever making her own appointments with her local dentist nor cancelled a flight, never made to queue nor made her own breakfast wearing just singlets and shorts. Instead she shuffled through scheduled events pretending to be interested in something she doesn’t, pretending to look intelligent with things she doesn’t understand, pretending to smile at something she wasn’t amused at, putting on outfits carefully coordinated for her though they are technically designer uniforms, and having royal advisers breathing down her neck. To commoners, all these sound like a lifetime of Imprisonment. But are they? From cradle to castle to crown to casket and now handling them all to a bloke called Charlie, can anyone ever imagine her anxiety mothering not only her heir but her nation as well as the commonwealth ? They are all unplugged stage play with no room for mistakes and eventhough the first ball pen she uses maybe a Mont Blanc, affixing her signature onto documents have serious implications. But still, for the many years she assumed by birthright the role of queen, she has in quiet dignity, outperformed the many heads of state of our world in stature and respect, charm, calmness, composure and in handling crisis. As for Charlie and his consort, good luck and we hope to see the age of Charleston being revived in good fun!”
“If nine judges from three courts has reviewed his case and found him guilty without a doubt, the rakyat will question the relevancy of the judiciary if by interference of the royal house assigned to safeguard its integrity, that pink lips would be granted a pardon and it’s sentencing overturned. Its implication is severe because it will elevate pink lips as an untouchable in the future while the reputation of our royal house in particular that of the current YDPA will forever be damaged in exchange, not unless our royal house wanted to be seen as promoting crime as a profession, thereby indirectly inviting more criminals and law breakers to hibernate in our country. If that is the case also, the safety of our citizens will forever be under civil threat by the very people sworn to govern, protect and safeguard our country and its security. That is morally wrong and shortsighted. My two cents.”
“Pahit is pushing for GE to happen now not because he thought it timely to give the mandate back to the public because the rakyat is happy when the judiciary is seen to be independent, but because by the stroke of luck, his only threat for the PMs post, pink lips is now serving jail time, and turtle egg is no match for him thus he sees this as the most opportune time for him to take over the government as the new PM, then quash all the 47 charges weighing heavily on his belt. Faham tak?”
“I do not think our Agong would want to meddle with Jib’s case or he would have interfered, before the judgement. After the sentencing, though the process has to follow hierarchy, the Agong would be seen as interfering, bias, and a partner in crime to Jib. Moreover the memorandum submitted by the public to pardon Jib wasn’t representative of neither were they endorsed by the ruling coalition because their leaders weren’t seen at the Istana, their voices, being silenced by Bersih’s petition.”
“Our Agong’s primary duty is to endorse a candidate that has received the majority of votes in Parliament, to be our pm. The pm then chooses his own deputy as well as names his entire cabinet, again with the Agong’s endorsement. That’s all. In other words, he is the rubber stamp.
With due respect, It is not within the ambit of our Agong to dictate who our pm should be, and the manner in which the choosing shall be conducted. He acts on advice. And Parliament rules are all described in the Act.
For unity reasons, voting must be seen to be swift, open, and orderly. At all cost must factions, dissent, and suspicion be avoided from happening. That is the reason why MPs must congregate, vote, and make known the results straightaway in Parliament. Beit by secret vote or better, by show of hands. With due respect, during the previous crisis, the Agong had been seen to be minding and fiddling, and the process reverses. Apparently being ill advised by the speaker who is strangely a constitutional law expert.
With the agong affirming the voting through secret sds, then again, interviewing the MPs who voted with the sds without revealing the vote count before Parliament convenes, and again observing if the MPs still endorses the candidate they have chosen in their sd, what then is the basis and function of the statutory declaration (sd) if it isn’t self verified?
If the Agong is not careful, he would be seen to be taking sides, if the pm chosen is not in tune to conventional wisdom which is exactly how certain factions crafted it in this manner, to gag the rakyat using the Agong’s interference. And that, with due respect, is unhealthy. And it should not happen again.”
“Are you guys officially certifying your laziness by reducing the weekly work hours from 48 to 45? It doesn’t make a difference when the majority of you works only 2 hours a day prorate to consecutive years of maternal leave, jamuan, lepaking, sembang sessions dan sebagainya. So it is done to induce votes?
“Out of rm9b, rm6b has been paid out according to paper record. But not even one ship has been delivered, after six years. The six ships technically never existed physically. But only on paper. But has been paid in full, because the original contract sum was rm6b for 6 ships. Then the unwarranted unexpected change of vendor occurs on the sixth year. Assumably the ministry in charge made an upgrade, and the original order was cancelled and refunded. Otherwise, how could one change to a new vendor and a new design when works are in progress, without ascertaining the risks concerning cancellation of order and reimbursements written in the first contract? Ironically, the procurement sum is again elevated by another rm3b, making it a grand total of rm9b for the new purchase, to the makers of the Scorpene submarine that could never dive. So who directed the change and who is he in consultation with? Which ministries are involved?
You know what? I think it is a ghost transaction. Only happens on paper.”
This world has changed. Pretty quickly.
Unless they are young, no woman would give love the number one priority a man wished for when it comes to relationships anymore. Despite what God preaches, they will dutifully sit on the pews every Sunday without fail and swear their undeniable faith to their saviour. But when it comes to love, they thought it right to save themselves first, God’s wisdom, later.
Many women have argued “I love him. But he doesn’t have a stable career. I can’t live with that. So I gave him a miss!”
Well lady, I think it’s good that you gave him a miss. Because he doesn’t deserve a woman who prioritise comfort over love. When love does not take first place in his life, your love for him is not genuine after all. It’s comfort you lusted for that his two outstretched arms couldn’t give right? What happens if the same guy suddenly has a stable income? Based on that, you’ll love him? And what happens if he lost his stable income after getting tied down with you? Does that mean you’ll again leave him too? So, the conclusion is comfort, in the form of money, is the glue that makes you stay. And all else is fake right? So why go to church then when God’s second most important commandment you can’t accept? And how about the marital vows of “for better and for worse” then? “For good times and for bad?” And “what God hast jointed, no man can separate?” Have you ever gave it a thought that if you love him wholeheartedly, stay and encourage him, that will drive him to achieve the comfort you longed for in no time at all? Or is that too risky a sacrifice for you to make?
Uncannily, the female species has evolved. To a comfort lynching pest. They no longer believe in staying faithful, and sacrifice for their partner she claims to have loved.
Which comes to the interesting point I want to make. Youths or lowering the voting age doesn’t make much difference in vote count in the general elections. It is the woman’s vote that you need to worry about. Because these comfort lynching pest wouldn’t be able to distinguish between legitimate income and illicit ones. Somewhere in the back of their minds is a voice wishing their boyfriends and life partners could have been more daring and be as bad and confident like these corrupt ministers running our country. So that they could lynch on comfort without needing to strive, for a living.
To women, lying and entitlement is something which has been entrenched into their psyche since young. To avoid harm while befriending strangers as advised by parents, they lie, to protect themselves. So lying, or that little white lie is commonplace to them. They always believe they are superheroes when it comes to relationships and that men should pay for their meals. And be the provider of everything. That is entitlement mentality.
So, to derive into them that these corrupt ministers lie, cheat and felt entitled is harder, because they are so used to it. Something they are familiar with. And felt nothing wrong with it. As such, do you think they give any hoots about our corrupt ministers who lie, cheat and felt entitled especially to women who crave for comforts? The answer is no. They’ll befriend any successful men who could provide for them, nevermind what he trades in, the littlest of talents they have.
Thus, it is not complicated to understand that according to a Google survey on woman’s fantasy, top on the list was pirates, famous man, and vampires. So what does this all mean?
It just confirms that to women, (unless they are decent minded), corruption is acceptable and so are bad people. And we hope it is only living in their fantasy, and stays that way.
That said, I don’t mean there are no good women around. There are. Whole family cramping on one motorbike, vegetable sellers, clerks, teachers and or nurses, the list goes on…
For every successful men, is a good woman behind indeed. And for every failed men, is also a women behind him too. Cuts both ways.
What I meant was,crooks does have their fans in the general elections in the form of women, and youths aren’t the determining factor in voting. So, get that right.
And love? What about love and God’s commandment and marital rites? Takes a backseat to comfort.
But you can be sure the pews continue to be flooded. Because more important than love, is salvation.
When covid happens, the economy fell across the board. Everyone including landlords were affected. People were forced to take unpaid leaves and pay cuts. Many were retrenched. And many committed suicide. Businesses big and small were wiped out.
Except the nondescript essential goods suppliers. Except government and glc servants whom received extra benefits when working hours was cut to half? For them, it was business as usual. And prices of essentials did not fall. But now, you thought it a good idea to float essential goods prices on the pretext of removing subsidies? What subsidies exactly when importers need to be contented with licenses and approved permits? How do you justify raising the price of essentials when essentials weren’t affected? How do you justify removing subsidies when the benefit came in handouts again to government and glc servants? And that one CEO could have his annual remuneration raised from rm300k to rm480k?
Besides good intentions and ideas, our government, beit federal or state, should seriously reconsider if they are competent enough to tackle the most basic of social issues which is infrastructure development, if not, either to employ the right man for the right job or encourage healthy architectural design competitions and proposals. The building and maintenance of public toilets and amenities including bus stands and bicycle parking, parks and recreation, roads, sewerage, and drainage boils down to one’s basic understanding of ‘human and handicap’ ergonomics, geography, town planning and the weather, thus, well-thought out designs and material usage ease movement including refuse collection, facilitates crowd control, prevents vandalism, and unforeseen littering etc from happening. It is no longer market trend to leave ideas to centuries old departments that has never moved along with the times because what we are going to inherit are poorly lit spaces, poorly designed drain covers, brutalised trees, flood and strips of sandy no man’s land.
I can foresee it won’t be long before illegal vendors and careless hawking line the promenade.
Malaysians are an aweful mild lot.
We sign petitions for everything. Being told that is the civilised way and the right thing to do. And so we did. How convenient it is to shout through petitions while quietly protecting our own hard earned gains and investments? But can’t you see that we are dealing with injustice here and a whole lot of unequivocal cable pulling? And a civilian is being forced to serve jail time just because the lawless perpetrators was victimised nevermind the truancy captured on the videos? Don’t you realise that the right thing to do is to take to the streets? Wake up dude! Sampai bila nak tidur ni? You want to fight for a better Malaysia, it takes lots of balls.
You don’t have them.
And some created petitions so that they could earn from the donations.
Please stop this insanity.
If you live in fear of the government, then I fear you too cos you voted in the government you fear.
“Let me be blunt.
Assuming all the BN supporters came out to vote, and they managed a popular vote of 50% and the total voter turnout during the Johore State election was 50%, that simply means only 25% of valid voters in Johore supported BN.
So what happened to the other 75% of voters, more specifically the 50% who stayed at home oblivious to the importance, when the remaining 25% voted otherwise?
The reasons are many. But here are the few which contributed significantly to the low voter turnout.
1. The spike in recent covid cases sometime after the announcement of the Johor election acts as a deterrent. Many wouldn’t want to risk their health.
2. Closure of voting stations earlier than normal.
3. Low postal votes across the causeway. Only about 10% or rather 7k out of 60k voted. How come? Who handles it?
4. 3-5 corner fights which greatly reduces the oppositions chance.
5. Our rakyat is fed up. Why? a) Mishandling of funds. Corruption is rampant amongst politicians. b) Our politicians same old same old empty pledges. c) Way too much of politicking. Politicising every single issue including crisis and disaster management. d) Our politicians uncanny habit to party hop. Crudely disregarding citizens constitutional rights to the point of forming their own backdoor government once elected without the citizens mandate. e) The acquittal of those found guilty due to corruption by our court of law. g) The constant abuse of race, religion and royalty in controversial matters to gag the rakyat even during the swearing in and forming of the backdoor government.”
“We have different set goals and priorities. Our upbringing, mindset and beliefs are also different. And with China now dominating the world economy, we will face trust issues in our own homeland, no matter how noble our intentions are.
There are few reasons why PH lost. 1. As explained, trust issues. 2. Which resulted in 3-5 corner fights versus a stand alone PH. 3. Vote buying thus the collaboration eversince the Sheraton Move. 4. Postal votes. Out of 60k strong working in Singapore, they only receive 7k. Thus they close the polling stations earlier than usual suspecting they are turning up after work. Most right minded people doesn’t trust postal voting. 5. Unverified army vote distribution.
Not being able to see eye to eye is one thing. But putting crooks back into the game, that is utter stupidity. Similar to saying we have absolved them from their crimes. Have we?
Because of the conversion of six retention ponds meant to contain excess rainwater run-offs during flash floods and severe thunderstorms so that areas in the vicinity of the storm remains high and dry, the KL flood mitigation plan had been disrupted. No thanks to the shortsightedness of the authorities in earmarking these crucial pools for development and allowing these conversions. Without these retention ponds, surrounding areas where flooding occurs is no longer habitable, because the excess water has no where to run to, thus it rises quickly, when the usual outlets are too small to drain them off. What this means is that those poor inhabitants will continuously face anxiety and suffer, each and every time it rains.
I severely doubt the authorities concern has contingency plans, now that the retention ponds had been traded off, other than putting in place sirens to warn residents nearby to evacuate, when the rising water reaches danger level. But does that mean flooding is solved once and for all after spending yet again a huge sum on a simple addressing system? Land is scarce and costly. Thus, to replace one retention pond with another within the vicinity is unlikely. So what else can they offer and who bears the loss? Setting up rescue teams and encouraging developers to build more houses and buildings on stilts? Or should they do the drastic, requiring all new developers to fill up their lands higher than the highest flood level ever recorded in the area before planning permission is given? Or is the national disaster committee only equipped with sampans, meant exclusively for politicians to do their usual recce?
The problem here lies in our system. There is perpetually too much power vested in one individual who is given veto power by law to override collective decisions made. Findings has shown that more than 900 projects had been given planning permissions out of which 60 percent of the projects had already been completed. Which now adds to the glaring damage. Not helped geographically by KL, being one of the only two cities in the world that doesn’t have a seafront so all the water naturally has nowhere to flow to. And if unskilled personnels are still appointed to helm positions that requires expertise, or that those in the know has to follow rules set by those with vested power, our problems will persist.
Besides this, global warming has taken its toil on rising sea levels and that is the reason why Indonesia has to build its new capital elsewhere while Singapore has already put in place their own draining system. We on the other hand is happily clogging up Tasik Kenyir, and acquitting the guilty in our courts of law.
“God speaks to us through nature. How else can he reveal himself, his love, his glory, his might, his wonders or unleash his fury if not through appeasing your doubt of his existence with the burning bush, the opening of the Red Sea, Noah’s flood, the flattening of Sodom and Gomorrah, the lightning that transforms Saul, freak storms, landslides, and tsunami. And if we can’t read these signs and wonders occurring in our midst, that only makes our weekly devotion hogging inside places of worship, a routine joke.
Indeed, we humans are dumb. For not being able to calibrate and process these subtle warnings that flashes between our eyes, and dumber indeed, than the government we voted in. For truly, who amongst us would elect candidates that insults our grey cells, when capitalism educates us to select candidates with heavyweight credentials to represent us? That said, when we feel cheated by these entrusted individuals, maybe we should question ourselves why we could be swayed by educational credentials and eloquence than to stick with the meek and humble selfless individuals?
As humans, we are all endowed with amazing sensory organs that allows us to mind read others, the ability to judge and to feel. Those are the sensors that triggers our haunch and intuition. And if our haunch and intuition tells us to chuck candidates with questionable intellect, how so did they survive? Are we missing something in our judgement that the majority wouldn’t agree with?
Admit it. Most of us are too self engrossed to do good for our community. We feel entitled to guard our own interest but not those beyond our four walls, and went with the flow even when we know our laws are outdated, therefore the abuse. As burdens to society we are, we leave it to selfless souls to care and manage our environment, and run our society, while we prefer to spend time watering our own garden. We chose to be ringside spectators, but spends our waking hours mingling with strangers on the social media to ply our trade, boost our noticeability, and enrich our pockets, hoping to gain traction with famous personalities as well as sending amorous private messages. We then transforms into disgruntled Frankensteins when we see mismanagement, and our economy nosedives. What kind of an idiot are we?
By our habitual actions and inactions, we have created our own brand of shit and disgust, and made the shits of others pliable. Has it ever occurred to us that bullshits like this doesn’t just happen overnight? So please go plug the source and nip the problem in the bud. Swallow the pride and shits we personally nurture before our ground turns into solid waste foundation. For God is real. And his tantrums has turned into wrath’s. Look around us. Little ‘Acts of God’ is now manifesting. Be more selfless and understand his disgust. Then turn your gaze towards the sky, as Emperor Constantin 1 did. If God did not abandon you, so should you not abandon his creation to see it rot. Indeed, God speaks to us through nature. So should you help protect it and not play dumb. Help protect our country and Fark this present government off.”
“They cheered for the fishermen, yet none of these victory march protesters has ever stepped foot near that village and beach before, nor when the discussion was going on before the decision was made. Public engagement was open, but they prefer to wallow in their own forum and follow their leaders, gerakan stalwarts formed under the guise of ngos who thought they could cripple dap in the name of conservation, by stirring a non-issue when in reality, the family of these fishermen no longer finds a promising future basking under that windy tide.
As a Malay centered township, it would be shallow thinking to even suggest that these inhabitants weren’t engaged to help improve their living conditions, nor were they denied provisions to learn and earn et al. And it is indeed a tragedy that ngos would use their plight to justify their need to preserve that catchment. Besides, the current government did not deny them their right of earning, even when judging according to today’s standard, their occupation is no longer sustainable. But if they have decided to stay put in that catchment, but deny the progress that would benefit their village in the long term such as connectivity to the city, and added value to their property, that has far reaching consequences and an oversight.
It is sad but true, but many of their younger generations prefer to be grab drivers instead. And no wedding planners has ever considered that part of the island to be an ideal shooting location. The access since sixty years ago was long and winding no thanks to the bn government who did nothing to improve their livelihood except blurting our empty promises. Thus their current state of affairs. And btw, do any of these protesters at the last count knew exactly how many of these fishermen are still making a living combing the sea? 200? No. It’s hardly 10 percent. Their catch hardly feeds the inhabitants of their own village. One can trust their so-called ngos to keep the statistics tucked under their arms. And then blame their dwindling catch to the circumstances plaguing the sea, when the truth is, none of them wanted to be a fishermen anymore than you do. On a lighter note, why be a fishermen when all the politicians drives a Vellfires?
The ngos may cry victory of sweetness, then beat their behind and leave that place under the care of father sun, whilst these fishermen’s scorch their skins and suffer, so they could all have their little cheap thrills once in awhile penetrating the area with camera crews in the name of conservation.
And the biggest loser? The villagers not forgetting the people of Penang. Because if their standard of living did not change years down the road whilst yours is way ahead in terms of invincibility, remember this day which says so much of your careless character and selfish motives. Besides, there is not enough heightened activity and inhabitants to justify the need to build the costly link. In all goodness, the current government is trying to help them unlock the full potential of their village besides uplifting their standard of living. And if anyone would suggest that this is a political ploy, think about the humongous budget that one needs to raise when really, they could unlock it elsewhere with lesser budget.
And so what we have here are political parties cloaking as ngos and Malay supremacists back saddling the ngos questioning the sincerity of a dap led government. That’s what it is. Using marine life and it’s survival as excuse. So much for Merdeka and what it means.”
“I would love that we could all tango from stages 1 to 2 or stages 2 to 4 but not during a time when the statistics deteriorate so badly 20 months into lockdown. And children’s are now rushed to school by October just because their first 100 days grand plan say so. Whatever that can be done then to prioritise children so that they do not need to waste two years of the lives idling has fallen onto deaf ears because our ministers thought their lives are far more important than these vulnerable children’s. Therefore they were all and I mean in totality, 70 ministers who received their two jabs first even before the frontliners does but claims to put our interests above theirs. And so is the idea of a strict lockdowns for 2 months being overruled by economic concerns of their cronies. And with the delta variant now running haywire in the streets, suddenly they decided to allow cinemas and hotels to operate. Fine. I have no problem with that for a long as the patrons and operators have all completed their jabs, but so must all the other types of business be allowed to operate and patronise only by those who have completed their jabs! The situation we have right now is that businesses in enclosed areas are allowed to open but banks still restrict users and gyms are not allowed. How different are they? And those foreign workers whom have not completed their vaccinations are roaming everywhere preparing and delivering food.
And why the restrictions on interstate travelling when you are so prepared to reinfect people from the same state by opening up touristy businesses? You mean your daily statistics as reported doesn’t add up our country as a whole, and that state borders are still manned by personnel’s to check on permits for parents visiting families or children that they are all required to reinfect themselves standing in line at police stations to seek permits?
To cut it short, our ministers all seem to suffer from post mental siege not helped by the lurking virus they thought it fine to legalise corruption side by side by pardoning corrupters and blaming individuals on the streets who committed suicide on drug taking. What? I am sorry but why don’t they ask themselves where these poor people find spare cash to purchase drugs when they don’t even have enough to buy food therefore they decided to dive down buildings while many others raised white flags that you clearly bar, and why is the drug problem persistently menacing after 6 decades of nation building? No will to correct the system?
Money and the thought of getting rich is the root of all evil and the mother of how corruption came about made worse by a government who succumbed. They seem to think it ok to drive into the minds of our children to follow in their footsteps while ironically making compulsory religious and moral studies in schools. And for as long as they are not the ones who eat sour bread or instant noodles, they are fine.
Well, the whole country is not fine when the biggest crooks in the history of mankind has direct access to the prime ministers office and government investiture ceremonies insisting they be made national economic recovery advisers. And it is certain not fine when the government changes and ran independently, indignant to the wishes of the rakyat. And it is not fine to admit defeat to a virus we could jolly well contain right from the beginning if not for the power tussle and billions spent to achieve herd immunity. These defeatist attitudes are certainly not welcoming nor are they putting our country at the forefront of disease control. What sort of messages are they prepared to send 100 days later? That corruption is also fine and it is here to stay?
Go F off!”
“Some of us may have noticed that governments of the day seems to have an obsession, preference and attachment towards cabinetmakers terms, when describing Parliamentary placings and positions of these elected members who ran our country.
Words like ‘chairs’, as in chairman (now chairperson), ‘seats’, as in the seats of Parliament, ‘bench’, as in back-benchers, ‘Secretary’~ (which comes from the french word Secrétaire meaning a form of enclosed writing desk), as administrative arm of the different portfolios, a ‘secretariat’ which is a permanent administrative office of a department, and lastly, ‘cabinet’, as in the committee of senior ministers responsible for controlling government policy.
This is so because until the medieval era, castles are devoid of furniture and thus it was the usual formality to greet and be greeted, and to grant audiences and discussions standing.
When chairs made their appearance in the 18th century, they were a luxury. They weren’t mass produced like today and thus, not everyone could afford the comforts made by the ébéniste and menuisiers, the two components of cabinet making which decides the shapes, designs and functions of these furnitures. These cabinet makers were very much celebrities and respected people of the courts. And thus, especially chairs, they are reserved only for those in power, and the people who could afford to commission them. And orders were usually piled up to the brim and may take years to have them delivered.
Therefore to be offered a seat, means you are a deserving privileged, someone worthy of respect.
Hence this obsession carried on, with these terms handed down through generations of those who were vying for these seats of power. And above this are the ‘Rulers’- the instrument used for sizing and measuring furnitures.
“Our YDPA has already officially appointed our PM and endorsed the cabinet of our PMs choice. So why do YDPA still insist on a vote a confidence in Parliament for when he has already chosen who he wanted?
If YDPA is concern about protocol, then YDPA should by right heed our constitution, or take the trouble to read it, and let the MPs determine the PM in Parliament, which till the last minute, was but a speculation? Why is YDPA acting on hearsay?
There were lots of claims then, but no one indeed knows the actual score. Thus our YDPA should allow Parliament to take its course, which is the rightful way. Not by statutory declaration that till today no one gets to view them!
And did YDPA verify if it was provided in the constitution of these coalitions, that they are allowed to tie the knot with any party they want, at anytime they choose to, even at the last minute just to make numbers? In the first place, are these MPs acting in a preposition the rakyat is comfortable with? And that each of them are not contravening their sworn oath as expressed in the sixth schedule? Because if they are, why didn’t Parliament plug this loophole long ago? Why allow loopholes to exist still? And why allow and validate a last minute coalition?
Well, it is ironical our YDPA doesn’t know all this. After all he is the all knowing and all wise. And even more ironical is that YDPA wasn’t correctly advised. It is treason for telling lies or misleading the Agong.
Perhaps a better question to ask would be, what was YDPA’s reason for putting the cart before the horse and allow the situations to reverse? And then conveniently seek the endorsement from Parliament?
Because by right, in the constitution, the Agong is the endorser. Not the MPs.”
“Fark the MM2H policy. Fark Rais Yatim. Let them all go home. What can we expect from senior citizens residing in our country? Contribute to our economy? Fark you No. Contribute to more immaculate conception yes! You think they flood your ckt stalls more than bars? And taking advantage of our laws to benefit them? Why should they be given privileges we as citizens were deprived of- like tax free cars and contribute to the increase in prices of household goods especially houses we as citizens can’t even afford in our lifetime.
Why should we pamper our rouge developers who builds houses with them in mind? Then leave as and when they want by just beating their backside? Maybe Rais Yatim has a use for all the women he brought in. Other than that, just tell him to shaft the law up his arse. They are Lopsided laws and should be corrected!
Don’t worry about housing prices. Malaysians are greedy. Prices will autocorrect soon enough! And 30k worth of properties is really nothing.”

It’s a stylised image of a headless man with hands holding onto his backside.
Without a head, can he ever be a prime minister? Leaders uses their heads to think. Here, he is without a head.
That is point number 1.
Point number 2, why must a leader’s hand be touching his own backside meaning shit or fart? Should he continually be touching shit? Or in another light, can a man carry himself? No. No man can ever carry himself.
Point number 3, a leader must be seen standing. On this logo, he is sitting, not the posture of a leader.
Point number 4, he is sitting but facing left, rather than right. A leader must always be seen to be right therefore he must face the right. Not left.
Point number 5, the white arrow that resembles the hands of a man holding his backside is actually designed in the shape of a thunderbolt striking him.
It is also in the shape of the smoke from an airplane which is struck and dives down. Whichever way you look at it, he is dead. Whether through the thunderbolt zapping him, or the dived down plane.
Point number 6, the four black and white triangles as seen from the logo represents death. And four signifies death. Beit pointing up, pointing down or pointing right as seen. As for the colours of the triangle, black represent dark or night, and white represents light or day. That means he won’t achieve his goal, beit night or day.
That is why in Chinese mysticism and fengshui, Anwar Ibrahim will never ever be a prime minister, if he continues using this logo.
It’s a nicely designed logo no doubt. But bad for his fengshui. Very very bad in fact.
Take that away from him.
No offence to the logo designer.

“Now mask. Later helmet. Then, full body suit. The whole world is held hostage to feed the virus and vaccine innovators and producers. Just when we try to overcome one strain, they release newer strains, so that we would be consistently fed fear and crippled. That’s how they corner the world market, at the same time, crippling their enemies economy by spreading hate statements and supporting terrorism. By right, they should be tried for genocide.
It’s a biological warfare going on out there, all because someone tries to regain a grip on the world’s economy. When they have nothing left which is good to sell.”
“No Hannah, childrens issues goes into the unity and social development ministry. If not, park them with the education ministry. No separate children’s ministry for me sorry. If you feel childrens welfare are slighted, then named it the unity, children and social development ministry. Before that could happen, that thought of yours that women are better in handling children has to stop. Many men are good with children too, and the priority here is to appoint a capable minister whatever their sex may be who can look into the issues pertaining children unless if it is Harry Potter, and not Hannah potter in charge.”
“Some people can whine till the cows come home when things didn’t turn out to be what they expect it to be, but has no sense of social responsibility. They pushed their concerns to others, and thought it is others duty to take care of the world, whilst they happily takes care of themselves. Don’t they know that it’s people like them who chooses not to do anything whilst they can which is why, how and where we are in the state we are in today?
Counting the days when they are younger and more capable then, they have conveniently forgotten to stand up for our rights when they should by right fight, so that we can at least appreciate them for trying their best to fix the wrong, and doing something right for our sake.
Instead, I see them now trying to lecture us on their brand of living, telling us to give up the fight, that it is a lost cause. It is people like lky, who held on to his belief, breathing down tunku’s neck and tell him we are on the wrong direction before he was sacked, who deserves the salutation. It was him with David marshall alongside others who helped us gain Malaya’s independence. It is people like them whom after a century or so, who could tilt their gaze high and said they have tried, and did not become someone else’s useless forefather. Unlike those whom when they had the chance to speak, to help, to contribute, to stand up and be counted, and has the strength and civic morality to make it good again, did not, and chose not to sacrifice nor volunteer, nor being a part of, but went about chasing their own dream, oblivion to the state we are in.
So it’s not about what they know that we don’t know. In fact we know better than them who sits and watch the world go by and complain when others suck dry our country. And complain yet again when their salary is high. It is about what they did not do, that now, we are trying to deal with, to get it done. If I may be so unkind, since they can’t help, tell them to stop circulating their ‘I told you so’ hypothesis and wrap up their fearful tendencies within the comforts of their blanket. Sleep with it. Sweep it under their carpet of should do’s but did not. And hide their perpetually selfishness.
Stop listening to people like this. If I may I regard people like this as useless variants of society. More deadly than Covid-19.”
“No Ambiga, no unity government for me sorry. A government does not get anymore dangerous than one without an opposition sorry.
Our judiciary, national security, education and health departments, these are bodies that should be independent. Why aren’t they? So is our MACC. What we have now here are ministers so powerful, they could walk freely anywhere and do whatever they want by the wave of their name tags. Without the opposition, they’ll collate to break our bank. I’m serious. Like what happen during our last emergency. So, you must be kidding me by putting in a petition for change.
What you see in the US, UK, Korea, elsewhere in the world, is also not called a unity government. So is Singapore. There must always be a split in-between~ a fact checker who calls themselves the opposition, the backbencher, you name it.
In the US, they call themselves the democrats and the republicans. In the UK, the liberals and the conservatives. In the Middle East, the fundamental and the liberal Muslims. It’s still the ruling government and opposition in Singapore. No difference from ours.
When elections come by, the citizens is still forced to choose between either one.
What we need is not a unity government, but a serious law review, and a lifespan for every bill if you consider the latest spat involving the election of our Pm intolerable.
It’s a childish proposal. Not like I want to complain .”
