“They missed a point. If ph doesn’t support moo’s round table move, chances are, moo will resort to handing his grip back to umno. Which he would, just to spite ph and retain pn. If that happens, the kleptocrats will move back into power and jib and Zahid will certainly make a come back most probably standing behind the curtains. That also means it is bad news for Tony, who would be in deep shit, and face the brunt , for landing them into so many court cases. Now it is clear what Tony’s concerns are. Read his lips. Tony himself will be in hot soup ‘if’ umno wants to be spiteful. And Tony couldn’t blurt this out to his comrades because it only involves him and a few others. So he has to face his brunt. Now we know why Tony wanted them all to go for the round table talk.”
“By now, all those who had received their 2nd dose plus the 14 days grace period to allow their immunity to develop should ‘all’ be allowed to lead a normal life, even to travel, albeit for family, work, exercise, relaxation, vacation, study or reopening their businesses. But every sector of the economy must be manned only by those who have had their second dosage taken. And patronised only by those who have completed their second dosage. Those who have not should not be let out of their house even, assisted by those who have eg, grocery shopping, or meals. As it is, we’re looking at two adults whom are fully vaccinated whilst their children’s stay home.
We must understand that even without herd immunity, as the numbers of those vaccinated increases by the day, they indeed have a better resistance against getting infected, and a better chance it won’t be severe as according to findings thus, they automatically behave as a human shield in larger crowds for those who had not taken the jab.
As for foreign travellers, those who have had taken their full doses should be allowed into our country so long as they have received the necessary clearances from their own country of origin, irregardless of the type of vaccine they were given. So please, do not be too eager to join in the sanction war that some countries got themselves into. Imposing more restrictions, collecting unnecessary fees reduces our competitiveness. Nevertheless, they should all still be quarantined as usual.
We shouldn’t restrict those of us who wanted to travel too. But when they come back, like the rest of the foreigners, they should all tow the line and be subjected to quarantine themselves. No special privileges given beit politicians, aristocrats , bourgeoisie or peasants. That’s all there is to it.
It’s a new day, it’s a new way, it’s a new life!” that we should be embracing. Do not make our life more sordid than it already has been.
My two cents I am sure not a lot of people would readily agree with me and you know why and where the problem lies?
The problem lies with fear.
The fear of a Covid explosion that could decimate them simply because the system fails to ensure adequate beds to prepare us for eventualities if we fall sick because for over half a century or so since independence, our government thought it more important to budget for religion than to emphasise healthcare, and they stunt the truly talented with quotas, leaving the system with half baked blokes who can’t tell the difference between their right and left foot! And because they lack foresight cos their eyes are all the time focused on other women’s hind-side, they didn’t think it important to stockpile on beds, on rooms, on equipments, things like that in cases of emergency to deal with a pandemic of this gargantuan nature.
Variants? Not variants! More like programmed strains released to their fancies until China bows to their requests. The way I see it, it is a never ending assault till they win their imagery control over the world economy failure of which they would lead us to another world war! They wanted China defeated that’s why the ganging up with g7 and sanctions to those whom did not use their vaccines. Now you guys get it?”
“Years ago, we were all convinced that oats and wheat are good for our health. Much healthier and beneficial than rice. Rice consumption they say, turns carbohydrates into sugar in our bloodstreams and if we don’t burn them out, we will inherit diabetes. They produced scientific evidences to back their claim and although we are not disputing their findings, I do not know why the need to convince us that eating more wheats and oats can lower your cholesterol. Really? But I am a living testimony that it doesn’t work, although I do enjoy my morning cuppa for the last 40 years or so. Plain oats without sugar nor milk. And my cholesterol level did not come down. Not even budge a bit.
I was urged by friends to take medication. I didn’t. I just go about my daily living, eating things I like and enjoyed most and I was convinced that for as long as I am not excessive towards something, I am ok. I still hold on to that believe. Eat, drink, enjoy, and be happy.
Back then, cholesterol was an alien term, but it was alarming enough coming from their medical professionals, that excessively high cholesterol leads to stroke. Without explaining to us that there are two levels of cholesterol until the advent of the internet. Still, with so much information, the more we read about it, the more confusing it gets. But in our midst are certain self-made doctors who graduated from google university. And they are making tons of money sending chills down everyone’s spine to convince us to change our dietary habits because they claim to have the magic panacea- a fibre rich diet filled with proteins, vitamins and minerals that comes in handy packages, capsulised. They claim that all these supplements could help get us back on track and fight public enemy number one- ‘cholesterol’. It wasn’t long before everyone’s kitchen storage is filled with supplements of all kinds. Especially Vitamin C, fish oil, multivitamin, extra virgin coconut oil, shark cartilage?!!! What more, many made a beeline to get their blood tested for cholesterol at Pathlab and BP. And so, many did switch and plough their hard earned savings towards these supplements, forgetting that Asians were, then and now, still the longest living creature on earth. Many also forgot that we lived in a country abundant with natural food resources, therefore we are not short of a well-balanced diet. Many too didn’t understand the mechanics behind relieving us from our staple food. As consumption of rice went down, so are the need for paddy fields. At the same time, the demand for oats and wheat skyrocketed. So are their health supplement industry.
There were many other hypes after this, the list could go on and on. But in later years, as what we might expect, they released statements that subsequent findings show that cholesterol is as equally important to our health. Many private practitioners too, help dispel this myth that they created. We were warned then not to eat egg yolks, because they were the chief culprit towards cholesterol. And now we are back to eating eggs, without discarding the yolks. Wtf.
My point is this.
Back then, we were sold fear.
Today, they instilled fear upon us about Covid, so that we again buy their products. But this time around, they became smarter. They sell their products from the top down. Not bottom up. They no longer need to engage agents to knock on our doors to canvas their products. With a super spreader deadly virus so acute that citizens drop like flies by mere inhaling, they compel governments to contain and arrest the virus. With a virus that could incapacitate us within weeks of getting into contact, they have yet again released their magic panacea. This time it is called ‘vaccine’. To flatten the curve also comes hosts of other ancillaries eg. face masks, hand sanitizers, temperature detectors, and medical equipments. They expected the whole world to cower to them over the vaccine they developed. Especially their primary target China with a huge population where the virus supposedly originated from. But that was not to be. And because of that, they lost heavily in sales. And they lose more because China, as the world’s most densely populated country, did not for once rely on their vaccine. China developed their own in a matter of weeks. If China would have acceded their request, these forces might have enough funds to contra off their debts owing to China. Other back breaking demands might also be lumped into the deal that may stunt China’s economic prowess. China did not hesitate to have the virus contained within weeks helped by stringent enforcement, and guess what? They could build makeshift hospitals within days. Not only that, China even donated vaccines to the lesser fortunate world. I believe this action offended them greatly. It’s no wonder that the internet has little sentiments nor do they sing praises over the effectiveness of Sinovac, sinopharm or cansino. Because these vaccines doesn’t bring them returns, they keep running them down.
Everybody knows that the internet is flushed with news of all kinds. Whilst layman got entertained, the clever opportunists uses it to market their products. And because most people are susceptible to believe in just about anything without questioning it’s merit, ivermectin has become overrated. So is Pfizer, moderna and AZ etc. In the veterinary world, ivermectin is used to treat worms and lice found on animals. Crocodiles, pigs, elephants or giraffes, you named it. The have ivermectins made for human consumption too. To kill lice as well. But as a cheap panacea to mutilate Covid, only they know. I don’t. Do you?
I am even more weary when public institutions such as KKM, WHO or CAP endorses it’s effectiveness. Don’t you? Simply because these bodies are also human driven, and they are as susceptible to their big bosses wishes just as everybody else in the commercial industry does. What’s worse, they too succumb to greed and pressure. Anything they say, whatever they have decided upon, are mostly driven by invisible hands that stokes the flame of gain and discordance. These institutions are, sad to say, marketing tools used by the silent stakeholders. And with this comes mistrust. We not only mistrust the vaccine, we mistrust the body that was put in charge, we mistrust the news, we mistrust our own government.
To put it simply, no one in their right mind would think of injecting some foreign liquid into their arms that has not gain clinical approval. That is fear number one. But all of us did. In response towards our governments call, in response towards our own fear of being bedridden. That is fear number two. Where ivermectin is concern, sorry but my naiveness got into the way. There are so many different types available in the market. So many grades, brands, size and dosage for ivermectin. So which one is the right one? And there are so many opportunists trying to make a buck or two preying on our vulnerability. Which one is trustworthy? I don’t know. And I am no doctor. This ain’t the world I used to be acquainted with.
So all I wanted to do now is to sit and wait.
And bump up the volume of my classical channel. To play safe rather than be sorry later waking up turning myself into a sorry sight of Mr. Hyde. The same way I did nothing to my cholesterol level. Because if it really works and if I am admitted, I believe that by then, our hospitals would have prescribed me ivermectin. Since many claimed that KKM has given the approval.
But you are free to make your own choice.“
“There is no way we can tell if the vaccine given us is original. Not unless their modus operandi is tight, secure and strict, and we were informed what to look out for before the needle goes into our arms. No one bothers and thought such advice necessary until videos showing recipients receiving empty syringes goes viral. Till today, only a handful of people knew the workings including but not limited to KKM, Pharmaniaga and KJ himself. Moreover, we learnt that they have a special deal with the vaccine producers. Our law requires the vaccines to be locally packed. That means the vaccines weren’t air-flown into our country in it’s original vials, but in cumbersome cubic tanks. As such, foul ups such as efficacy and contamination can be compromised if the refrigeration temperature is not closely monitored. That can occur anytime before, during or after the handling or packaging stages. Not forgetting the black marketeers who could have roped in his gang to swap the vaccines before, during or after the packaging or vaccination stage. Therefore, insisting that we should be shown the vials before the syringe goes into our arm does not guarantee that the vials wasn’t tampered with way before our appointment date. I hope you understand that. So, Good luck to you.
The latest news is, our local police is now trying to cripple the fake digital vaccine certificates racket. For whatever that could mean to someone holding it.”
“If one keeps on neglecting creativity, but works in a context of acceptability, as according to that school of thought which taught them, then we unconsciously stunt our inner easternmost expressions by paying homage to western literal and artistic ideas, subconsciously elevating them to iconic towkay status making them relevant, but in turn, reduces our own chances of making our way to the top.
Schools of music till today still stresses on Brahm and Bach. Schools of writing still pays homage to Shakespeare and Wilde, not Tagore or Han Suyin. Schools of visual art history conveniently branded us as offshoots of abstract expressionism. We have been suppressed for the longest of time, if not, being denied our own language and identity. And until we assert our own brand, we can’t flourish as unique individuals. With this, our arts and literal history should thus be rewritten and pushed further back to the time where our ancestors began it all. To say that our arts began during the Islamic age is an unforced error. There are many other dynasties that we should reckon with that even the aborigines should not be discounted. They are the unique individuals that did not begin their existence feeding off western classicals as we have always been, and that’s the reason why we are conveniently placed into neat identifiable parcels ready for the slaughterhouse and many a time, being labeled as ‘aliens’. If I may say, that was our own doing.
Western ideas propound that without education, one would fail. That is untrue. Because we have seen that with great acumen, being led by the teachings and philosophy of wise men from the east, many uneducated local rich has proven them wrong. That without the infiltration of western ideals, imperialistic China has thrived way longer than many from the West.
The westerners also has an uncanny habit to device all sorts of courses and tailor them to suit their own ideals whilst we in turn, enrolled ourselves into their classes, many a time earning a degree studying about our own culture, tradition and way of life through them. Should this continue?
The profoundness of a language is also not important as our forefathers has time and again, proven. Living with different ethnicities, we never have trouble understanding each other, or getting our messages across, despite the littlest we know about someone else’s language.
If I may repeat, we need that paradigm shift. Of thought and execution. Classical eastern writings, performances, and visual expressionism should in the future, not be assessed by western standards and principles, or risk being lumped into pattern moulds set for us, and be forever regarded as an off—track or an off—shoot of the western system. How close are we to the Africans if I may ask, that when one studies Asian, we are conveniently lumped alongside theirs?
Thus, to get rid of being stereotyped, we, including the academicians, should all rise to the occasion and be ourselves. We should write as how we write according to how our natural senses evoke us, and be as distinct as how our ancestors are, listening to our own folktales, swaying to the rhythm of our own wayang, and paint with the scurried soul of an easterner.
Our works should overwhelm them with just that tinge of ourselves, and we should all by now, live as how we are, being accorded a rightful place on the map of the world since time immemorial.
What I just lamented may sound discomforting to the westerners, but I rather they suffer than we suffer, the earful.”
“To me I would have rearranged the order of vaccine dispensing.
I would have divided the entire nation into :—
1) toddlers and infants below 6yrs of age,
2) primary school children below 12 including teachers,
3) secondary school students below 18 and teachers,
4) preuniversity and university going young adults below 28 and their lecturers,
5) working adults and foreign workers below 60 yrs of age except those which fall under category 8.
6) retirees and senior citizens 60 and above
7) illegal immigrants
8. public healthcare, transportation, essential & food services restricted to front line employees only
9) all members of Parliament
I would Hv dispensed the vaccines in this order :—
8, 2, 3, 4, 6, 1, 5, 9 then 7.
And announced this daily through all channels available so that the public knows.
Sadly this is not the case here.”
Dear Health Minister,
Your SOP no longer allows video or picture taking. So how are complaints of syringes inserted but not injected handled by you when asked for proof or do you solely rely on the complainants words against the accused?
Can you be more concise who deserves the antibody test and are they FREE ?
And how does it affect the test results if only one dose between the two is not properly injected onto the person tested?
As it is right now, syringes were seen left inside the tray with the vials pre-extracted and nozzles protected. We understand the meticulousness of operations when there are too many people lining up waiting for their turns therefore your factory mode of operation. But how are we to know that those pre-prepared syringes and the vaccines inside are genuine? Were the staff nurses monitored drawing the vaccines from the vial into the syringes? And even if they do largely come straight from the bottles, how are we as recipients differentiate if the vials not discounting the bottles are certified genuine and that it came direct from the manufacturer?
How are we to know that the syringes are not re-used since we are escorted out immediately after the injection?
Did your health ministry, the immunisation ministry or even the information ministry ever consider educating the public what to look out for considering the numerous complaints received?
Ain’t it timely that the layman at large be informed through the main media or social media platforms the vaccination processes, to avoid unnecessary hostility happening between your staff nurses on duty and the public at large?
Or do your SOPs all vary from district to district and state to state?
No one is accusing you of wrongdoing but misinformation breeds mistrust. It is Good if you could clarify. Put billboards inside vaccine centres and a one minute video on main tv slotted in between the news channel is encouraged to clear the air.
Thank you for your attention.

“The world has finally come to the conclusion that this pandemic cannot be fully eradicated, after taking us around on a big circus chase, after depleting trillions of dollars from federal funds, and sacrificing lives by the millions. It feels like a big scam, convincing us that we will win, but just like their milder cousins and other incurable diseases in our midst, no single able scientist or researcher would care to probe deeper, allowing our leaders and perpetrators to devise more serious attempts to engineer our world, for a few dollars more inside their pockets.
It just goes to show that big bodied institutions from WHO to UNESCO to UN is a load of bull. They do not have the means necessary to bring the world to a complete halt for only 60days, to clear the air. Or we would have moved on by today, without the need for vaccine.
But what have they left behind?
A legacy of ancillary and a perpetual heap of debts amounting from moratoriums, to lopsided distribution of food and vaccines.
These institutions should, by right be dismantled and defunct. For they are but redundant white elephants pawned on the slave trade, taking cues only from their feeders, whom are willing to rear them as marketing managers for their products.
It is a worldwide folly, not only regional or national, that our leaders did not stress on the importance of healthcare, wellness and the food chain, but rather on dominions, possessions and ammunition. Being very vigilant over their boundaries being infringed, but went berserk when particles 0.5 microns in size escapes enemy radar.
So what have we become?
Today they have managed to make us animals in captivity by coding us with vaccines. By tomorrow, we’d be bionically controlled ready to take orders.
Say we are at the beginning of the death to humankind. Because we could no longer control our own destiny.”

“Dear God, you don’t plant a tree in between two young naked teenagers and tell them not to eat the fruit. That is mischievous of you. Because you should know that every teenager is naughty, adventurous, and rebellious. And so they had fun. They did! Just like every loving child of yours would. But the one who wrote the bible termed it as disobedience, or sin. Why?
Had he never been a child before to understand what sin is? Sin is what you do that causes hurt or inconvenience to someone else. How did one bite of the forbidden fruit hurt you or inconvenience you?
But if these teens doesn’t rebel nor display naughty traits, wouldn’t they be classified as abnormal in today’s context? And what may I know do you want them to do inside the garden without clothes on and without tv or pub to go to? They are young, hot blooded, with an awakened libido. You want them to just stare at each other in full glory with gritted teeth and remain indignant towards each other? Because if they were to do as they were told by you, there wouldn’t be you nor me today. Nor Jacob, nor Sarah, nor Moses, nor Isaiah. They did what every natural growing up person would do. There’s no one else besides them. No one married them. It’s just her, and him. Unless you want to count the serpent in. You don’t consider that illegal fornication do you?”
“Out of curiosity, I registered with a dating site, earning myself 20 requests daily. From China doll swindlers trying to do a quick kill, and elderly women expecting to hook up some single handsome rich men. Lol… lol… they are all snapped up long ago dear! Don’t expect handsome men to be monks for life ya?
As the register of marriages gets filled up, the probability of dating single handsome rich men dwindles by the day. Even for those who are not handsome, nor rich.
The reasons why singles remain singles at a mature age are many. Just as many as why leftovers remain leftovers. I am not saying there are no longer decent older men around up for grabs. But for those who remain single, many have fallen in, others have fallen out. To some, it is a choice they hold on to for life. And they won’t let go of that choice. Some value freedom, others, because they do not have freedom owing to family or financial obligations. But for the many who remained single, it is because they suffer from a lifetime of communication difficulties, emotional disconnection, apart from physical and mental anomalies.
If you are older, but still wanted to attract single handsome men, looks like you have to settle for those that were once married. So watch what you write and wish for on your dating profile. If you had never been short of request to chat, if you are older, chances are these men are all married.
Otherwise you will need to continuously spruce up your image, to compete with those China dolls when it comes to looks. Which most men are attracted to. I won’t lie to you. They are your benchmark. Many pretty married women got dumped and cheated by their straying husbands in search of China dolls, no matter how well they take care of themselves.
Sprucing up your looks may win you attention, but that will also earn you countless heartbreaks too. If men are attracted to you physically, you can bet they’ll say anything, including lying about their marriage, just to bed you. For those who are honest and good, are not many. There are, but not many.
The internet has opened up the Pandora’s box that made stray dogs out of men. But men being men, were all born strays. They are all born hunters since primitive ages. Since young, men were designed to make life uncomfortable and silly for everyone. And that’s the truth.
Conclusion- I deregister myself from the dating app for good. Because I have a weakness. I am sapiosexual. I can’t feed on just looks alone. That alone makes me yawn.”
“The MCO is for 2 weeks. Why was the Emergency then lengthened till August? And what will it be like for spm and stpm students caught in between when the funds allocated for schools is much lower than the religious bodies? Elsewhere, even in neighbouring countries, online home programs have been developed and expanded to take centre stage permanently. What’s our plan for uni intake etc? We’ll see as we go along? The same way it takes every two weeks to decide on fuel prices and lockdown status? This indefinite indecisive delayed action of yours is taking a toil on every trader out in the open. The worse part is when you claim the Emergency was for the prevention of Covid-19 spread but on national tv, you said it is to arrest the current political and economic instability. Just exactly what is the kind of political instability are we facing, and how do you arrest economic difficulty by imposing an MCO which retards trade? Someone finds you incapable or a coup d’etat is imminent soon? If you would have been more careful in your mathematics, you wouldn’t have faced unequivocal support because you are a minority government seeking mandate by a majority opposition!
No one feels there’s a threat except you!
I think there’s a lot of paranoia rooted in your pedantic actions that warrants a serious rewrite of our laws to cope with election laws and your insecurity, so why force yourself to form a back door government when you know very well every right citizens democratic votes have been taken off them?
“If this world can agree on a Father’s Day, a Mother’s Day, a New Years Eve celebration, and an Earth Hour, why can’t we altogether agree on a 30 days Lockdown month? It’s a one time thing! The objective is clear. Just set the date United Nations! The world comes to a collective economic halt for a month except for essential goods and services, government compensates to sustain every citizen, moratorium sidelined. Do we really want to arrest COVID-19 with untested vaccine? So that corrupt government of the day can benefit, the pharmaceuticals and medical industries benefit and let the strain live? The problem is the virus multiplies and spread faster than recovery!
Oh I know now why we can’t. It’s an economic powered world.”
Why should we have a more severe mco when somewhere along the way, some fool with big name tags is going to foul up which no authority is brave enough to confront?
“Facebook owns Messenger owns Instagram owns WhatsApp. What makes you so sure they can’t buy up Telegram? Facebook have forewarned us that a merger between the chat stations is imminent long ago and now, is on the way to implement it. And without our approval, it’s against the law to move information about. They are not meant to make us jitter, paranoid or suspicious. My question is, are we that famous, popular or rich to feel threatened in the first place? Please give them a break. Do you know how many personnel’s it takes to manage those gossips of ours worldwide to warrant us to behave like cheap gung-ho who refuses even a usd2 fee to manage our profile but expects it to be free for a lifetime? And capitalise it as our own selling platform when there are other pay sites purpose fit to sell goods?”
The end concession reminds us not to rest on our laurels and stop idling when the virus lurks. Yet somewhere in between heaven and hell, lies the stakeholders ill bent to sway the world according to their conventional outlook and perception of the way things are. Where we are in our country right now, is the end result of the religious meet, sivagangga, the Sabah elections, the recent interstate travel allowed during the year end holidays. Somewhere in between are those who can’t conform to simple rules nor confine themselves to their wives hence it is termed EMCO. Extra Marital Control Order maybe? Arresting the problem is not within the ambit of the public in question, but our regulators. But they are all so afraid of the religious orders, the electoral commission, the immigration etc, all because of the name tags stuck on lapels of their superiors. Next are the attitude of our indefinite gaffmen who has the tendency to establish rules designed to only benefit their pockets. If they are short handed, they could perhaps encourage neighbourhood watch. But they didn’t. Why? The wishy washy rules without efficient enforcement also leads us round and round the Merry go round. With no end in sight.”
“When the numbers increase, you need to get down to the root cause, and nipped it in the bud. Invoking a lockdown is an easy way out. It’s akin to opening and closing doors to prevent the bull from storming in. It’s like installing your apartment windows with grilles so that your toddler wouldn’t fall, rather than educating the younger about the dangers of leaning over parapets. If the rakyat has to succumb to your intolerable miscalculation of two weeks vacation, followed by three months of staycation, maybe it’s time everyone takes care of themselves as retailers and eateries were all brought to their knees. Altogether they should close for good since moratoriums are but a feel good concession designed to benefit heartless landlords. All because it’s your fault dear government”.
“Our gaffmen is no pushover. Fact is they push accountability back to the rakyat instead of underwriting damage liability for the after effects of the inoculation of Covid vaccine in case of wrong choosing. Damage liability is no stranger to insurance terms and many doctors buys them responsibly. So why not the gaffmen be held accountable for choosing the wrong vaccine when the price we pay is ten times higher that of other countries offering the vaccine to their citizens for free, and their very job is about the welfare and safety of us citizens under threat? The vaccine is not compulsory and those who wanted to be inoculated has to sign disclaimers? Wtf is that supposed to mean? This is akin to tai chi and the art of deflection. It reminds us of the times when the fitness of a building became the responsibility of the architect instead of the building department that approves the plan, a move relatively unheard of in international construction practices otherwise what is the purpose of paying planning submission and approval fees without the benefits of a regulated gaffmen that possesses the expertise to cross check professionalism and guarantees the safety of its rakyat but instead cower when buildings collapses and town planning fail? Hence the severe flooding happening now in many states as well?
Malaysians has the tendency to share scare news. Today which condo dweller was infected with Covid or cctvs showing ppl crudely chopped in street fights. This is akin to jamming the road to witness the agony of accident victims, as if that helps.
“They finally realise it’s easier to rob our marderland without antagonising each other, having accidentally grab each other’s balls during one of their many spars.
Before, we were all at peace, for when they hated each other, they literally cross check each other out to our benefit.
But now, as they begin blow-jobbing each other to orgasm, we are fed with more cums as they cross each other out inside the ring. These once arch nemesis now turned lovers suddenly realise it’s easier to follow market trend and live a life of immorality instead, both harbouring a mutual hatred of being incestuously screwed left, right and centre by the old man who claims to be their stepfather.
But are we as citizens, going to take these lying down, and wait, as they tie the nuptial knot , promising to loosen the noise around each other’s neck, as we limitlessly ponder about accountability, transparency and whatever fark they claim to preach now gone to the ditch? But can the policemen be at the round table for long sitting with the robbers?
Well, in Malaysia as they say, ‘Money talks, and bullshit walks!’
Integrity and the rakyats welfare can certainly take a back seat to their own mini empires.”

Grief is a state of loss. An emotional upheaval that one feels beit over a divorce, loss of job, death of a loved one. It manifests in 7 stages, some experts argued 5- but it all depends on our equilibrium, our attachment to that party, the circumstances that brought about the loss, and the severity inflicted by the tragedy. The various stages are sequential but rubbery, with no affixed period, and an aggrieved party may sail across, mixing up or skipping some stages in between, and recover in no time at all. The 7 stages are: shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger and bargaining, depression, upward turn, reconstruction and working through, and finally, acceptance. But to ride through grief, one must know firstly how grief happens.
Religion has been the pinnacle of mankind. It is responsible for our lifestyle, the constant unrest between nations, civic consciousness, moral conduct and governance. It shapes us to become who and what we are today. However, what most people overlooked is the well known mantra of ‘Giving more so that one could receive.’ An extreme example would be “If anyone slaps you on your right cheek, offer him your left also.” Deep, mysterious parable that is. But a powerful one. That is another topic of discussion altogether.
Giving is an act of love, and giving begins with one being emphatic, generous, happy, caring, or simply, being dutiful. No one will give to their enemies where love doesn’t co-exist. And the more you love someone, the more you will give.
But taking or receiving is inevitable. Taking begins with the suckling of our mothers breasts, till one receives education, and finally when one is fit to take on the world. That dependence comes from one’s natural parents, guardians or sponsors. It is this constant state of receiving that one can mistakenly inherit the dogma of entitlement, thus quite often, a receiver will never know when to give back. Even after they grow into successful adults. Sometimes they defer their plans, others went chasing after rainbows. As a result, their caregivers are neglected because giving is not reciprocated. Until that fateful moment of loss arrives.
The receiver is then confronted with guilt, regret, denial , blaming oneself, the “ifs” I were to do this and that, the longing to do more which they did not initiate when their loved ones is still alive, because there exists an imbalance between giving and receiving. If one would have given enough or more than one receives, grief is short lived. But that is a natural frailty of man. To put off affirmations, praises, visits, giving of gifts. All these can be taught, but never will they ever be fully executed.
But managing grief is entirely different. The rites encountered in certain religions helps the aggrieved to let go. They are the hidden gems subtly designed with human emotions in mind. This if one could afford to, a full rite is better than half-baked ones. The action of burning incense is letting go, the serving of meals and drinks and the giving away of sweets to well wishers is letting go, the throwing of gluttonous rice, the offering of candles, the placing of wreathes and flowers on the casket, the singing of hymns, the shouting of mantras, the placing of bones into urns, throwing flowers into the pit, these rituals were all designed with giving in mind. If one couldn’t afford to, the giving away of the deceased possessions to the poor and underprivileged is another way of letting go. And when one gives, one will gradually let go. And the more one let go, the natural progression lightens our heart to recovery.
So it is right to say that hidden beneath all religions, beit right or wrong, our forefathers whom has designed all these sacred rites and mantras had us in mind. To help us heal.
This Pandemic is mild. Its death rate, tiny. But it spreads quick, and its effects on our lungs, can lead to disastrous complications. Because of that, earthlings began to observe newer habits, just to avoid contacting it. Still, there are many superheroes out there whose ears still hear nothing, and their freedom, not negotiable. If the world could come together, and endure a 30 days total lockdown in every corner of our world , something like an ‘Earth Hour’, can we overcome the problems all at once? Let’s named it ‘COVID 30’. But can UN unite with WHO and world leaders to have an EGM to agree on this common fight? And stop the fattening of wallets of hand sanitizers and face mask producers so we could unmask ourselves again?
Let us imagine, what if something deadlier is concocted into our atmosphere in the near future, whilst this pandemic remains. But one that is not as easily shirked off. Isn’t that a confirmation that biological and chemical warfare is out there blooming now? With viruses coded to attack specifically only on the organs it was programmed or designed to attack?
Because of that, scientists should focus on developing tablets or aerosol sprays that when consumed or applied, seeps into our skin and forms a protective sheen rather than wasting enormous budgets on developing defence and iron domes that can only deflect weapons, but still renders humanoids helpless to vulnerable chemicals and viruses? Wouldn’t that be better than zipping ourselves in two inches thick suits when the real defence is only concentrated between our noses, eyes, mouth and our skin?
Think about it.
The only real solution to this flood problem is elevating all low lying terrains much higher above the highest recorded flood level of that area as well as replacing and elevating all our existing drains and culverts. Something Singapore did many many years ago with some areas being forced to landfill to as much as two meters higher than the existing road level. As Penangites, we must readily admit that flooding not only occurs during heavy rain, but also whenever a high tide occurs. It so happens that nowadays, a phenomena like a high tide actually raises our sea level to meet the level of our existing drains therefore the backflow. The seawater gushes in while at the same time rainwater wanted to gush out, both looking for an outlet thus they collide. And it is not because Francis light and his entire entourage intended it to be this way but because global warming has drastically raised the sea level, the same reason why all our sandy beaches are being eaten up slowly by the sea from Gurney Drive till Batu Feringghi and beyond. And it is not about leaves and rubbish clogging the drains as some would like to blame it on. I’m just revisiting architecture in all its common sense glory.”

“But herein lies a bigger problem. Global warming has eaten up most lands surrounding our archipelago. It was claimed that Java itself will lose 50 percent of its land mass within 50 years. And Singapore has built and already tested its billion dollars tide arresting mechanism.
Sophisticated embankments to flush out the phenomenon of the rising tides needs immediate attention unless roads, residential houses and massive buildings sacrifices one storey each of their podium for refill. Is that possible? Yes it is. But where can we find the sand needed?
Over in our country, certain states has an annual flood scare during the monsoon season. And all the government cares about is to allow for stilt houses and sampans for the last fifty years. Seems to me that we are going to be another Venice in fifty years if our annual budget consistently goes to the building of faith rather than building embankments of hope.”

Stop getting concern and anxious over all the news circulating online. That won’t help eliminate the virus. Neither is you daily activity or inactivity. Rather, practicing good habits does. Wash hands regularly, wear masks, social distance yourself.
The infected needs to be quarantined. Not you and me. Life must go on as usual, but don’t forget our good habits. If we begin turning our daily activity into inactivity, first, the streets will go dead. Then the economy will go bust. When that happens, starvation will kill you faster than the virus could.
If we are asked to clock in, we must be required to clock out also. Otherwise each time a bloke is called in because he is tested positive, everyone everywhere he made an appearance at needs to be called in. Isn’t that silly? Imagine the whole shopping center crowd including sales assistants or a full running hospital needs to be called in?
You waste precious time contact tracing, and you waste doctors and nurses man hours besides tests kits. So much for my beloved government . How our government comes out with the Covid case numbers to warrant a lockdown is beyond me. However what is not beyond me is that the number of cases reported daily spikes way beyond what is circulated online amongst my friends.
“When someone is infected, the gaffmen only needs to refer to the data on the whereabouts as compiled by mysejahtera app. Discourage physical sign in and discourage other contact tracing apps. That way, you are in control. That way, you don’t need to waste precious time interviewing those whom are tested positive. Let mysejahtera be the only contact tracing source for everybody. If you can’t control this, stop convincing us that you can run this country. Clearly you can’t. When the figures are rising. Not unless you want to justify the need to call for an emergency to proof our king wrong. That is mischievous.”

“It is coming to year end.
What most businesses anticipated, that normalcy will return, is clinging on to false hope. Except for businesses that deals with essentials, rental demands cannot cope with the rate of drop in sales, with most abandoning ship to cut losses, many resorting to online platforms. Thus landlords suffer and so are the lenders. That became the new norm. But can those in the non essential businesses, from f&b to travel, to accommodation, to sports, to ego pleasing and the pleasure industry, and many more survives this?
The sad truth is that the new normal already seeped into our lives long ago, when men went a-chasing for success and power, through greed and negligence. And forces the world to its knees, like an injured boxer, succumbing blow after blow, to its slip shot policies thus, the fatal knocks of 911, SARS, Fukushima, and now Covid-19. Where-forth thou is love, kindness, generosity, righteousness, goodness and empathy if one may ask?
They are at the ringside babe! They are at the ringside! Helping the boxer regain his strength with momentous fixes, while praying he will last till the end- instead of succumbing to a knockout…”
“There must be an assigned proprietor for a trademark to be endorsed. Whether your pseudonym is Banksy or Wanky, indeed no one knows if you are a groupie, an institution or a delusional whacko. But since you can craft your fame holding onto a mysterious identity, then, you’d surely know how to wiggle your trademark across in other ways.
If the British can glamorise Spice Girls, James Bond and Jaime Oliver, surely you are of no sweat to them. “
“I think moral studies and religion as a subject taught in schools should be abandoned, with social etiquette classes taking centrestage. Personal grooming, deportment, good housekeeping, mannerism and conduct will ensure decency, cleanliness and social comfort at all times. Whilst understanding customs and traditions of other races will benefit harmony better.”

“I think the internet has taken sexual promiscuity to a much higher level. The age of gigolos and mama-sans has succumbed to this almost invisible jackpot showcase that churns millions of assorted humanoids shifting through your screen like oranges falling from the sky within just a few clicks, without you making any raunchy effort to hide your ogle. It is a personal shopping experience of the most luscious level gushing across your iris and you don’t need to be at your personal best to connect.
In the midst of it all, it has also created scoundrels out of men of all shapes and sizes, colours, belief and status. Man that you thought was decent but mischievously deceptive, as they hunt for elixir outside the boundaries of their marital union, and many who hid their sexual innuendos in the pretext of scavenging for a healthy melty relationship. Surprisingly, these are the same people who wedge themselves comfortably in between genuine singles who do not lie nor deceive.
But why does the most successful decent looking husband with a loving wife and children would want to risk it all if one may ask? And successful smart woman were also being cheated everyday?
I think that nomadically, men has always been the hunter gatherer and because of that, the chase has always interest and excite them. What more the triumph and satisfaction of bringing their prized catch back home. Hence their uncontrollable fetish to hunt for flowers of the prettiest bloom.
I think ego and affirmation comes in close second, after years of being deduced from his stigmata of knighthood and gallantry, to that of a janitor and repairman by their partners.
Away from this league are those with uncontrollable urges for coitus, not like they have genuine worries of any kind, nor their egos bruised, the consequence of being side stepped by their partners expectations.
So, how women pick out these pearls from a cache full of peanuts is where relationship coaches took the first big bite out of dimwits, and the scammers who comes in a close second, happily fattening their wallets playing casanovas to these lonely hearts. For those who pays thousands of dollars for advice, still, not all are lucky. Many are still cheated by decent looking men, whilst the rest are still crowding around their personal computers.
But right now, one thing is for certain. As connectivity improves, the inbox will ring nonstop, thus, it is almost certain that women of today are getting much more adoration, admiration and attention than those living in the bygone era. It is abundance with a capital ‘A’ and no longer a ‘you dump me I have no one else to choose from’ game. Some has their ego hitting the roof that their once placid connectivity is now an oasis flustered with high quality lingeries waiting to line their wardrobes on their upcoming birthdays.
So what does this do to the world?
Well, it certainly gave the words lies, betrayal and deceit a proper place in the dictionary of discreet with lawyers busily wrangling for amicable settlements the world over. It has also become the number one avenue where women cheats. But somehow, women show more success in discreet whereas to the men, many got slapped.
And got slapped hard! “
