The EC (Election Commission) Chief said : "I hope that there will be no more deaths of elected representatives." (what???)
and more...."We never question deaths, we never go to their houses (the deceased politicians) to check or ask their families whether they are really dead," he added. (is that EC's job as well???)
wait for more...... He also revealed that the EC spends about RM400,000 for every by-election. And to make matters worse, he revealed that Manek Urai does not even have a KFC outlet. (so....EC staff can only work in places with the existence of KFC??? and also it will be interesting to know how they spend the RM400,000.00 as well!!!!!!)
Seriously, I think Abdul Aziz is trying to catch up with the "reputation" of his predecessor, famed for his "urgently-amended-constitution" stint extension as EC Chief and not to forget the fiasco about the indelible ink. With his performance so far I bet he will come up with more interesting news in the near future.
This whole thing should not be surprising though it couldn't be helped that it did boil my blood a bit. Just like the attitude of the little Napoleons in the civil service and the PRDM who's recently on the tangkap rampage, they act as if we were still in the feudal times and they're the master (well....a very much sizable of the population thinks so.... I mean the slave as well). These little Napoleons get satisfaction by delaying your urgent need, or maybe just enjoying looking at your desperate face short of begging them but they don't realize that they're being cursed silently and if there's any karma being observed, payback time is surely guaranteed.
I seriously think the country is in constitutional crisis now. We have PRDM who's having Ops Tangkap dan Lepas without giving the hoot about the basic rights of getting legal representations, not to say to arrest the lawyers themselves. We have the judiciary in confidence crisis due to the famous tape of Correct, Correct, Correct and no actions were taken to prosecute or even investigate the case and the judiciary now is getting itself involved in legislative matter of constitutional importance.
I wish it's just the 1st phase of the bungee jump where the subject is heading to a free-fall but with all the baggages of the parties involved in the whole destruction of the nation now, I think we can just pray and do whatever we can in our capacity.

Art Harun presented us a unique travel guide to Malaysia in the form of advise cum congratulatory letter to Datuk Todt (ex-Ferrari boss and Datuk Michelle Yeoh's fiance - he recently got Datuk right? errr....I mean the honorary title....) for being appointed the Malaysian Tourism Ambassador. It's a good piece, a fine one indeed.

To all Malaysians who think you are the boss because you are the rakyat/citizen who pays tax and contribute to the country; because you vote and exercise your democratic rights, YOU ARE WRONG.
James Masing from Sarawak BN said these....
“By now, they should know they don’t have the majority and the sooner they learn the lesson, the better it is for them.”
“We are sending a strong message to them. ‘We are the boss’. They must know that they are just small fish, trying to score political points.
Read the whole news article here.
Of course he was referring to the opposition assemblymen but in the same context, are't those assemblymen elected by rakyat? But the smack of arrogance was not only referring to the opposition assemblymen and you can definitely imagine what kind of thinking he has over things like 'service the community", "meeting the needs of the citizens" etc etc which politicians always like to put it out conveniently from their mouth.
Another prayer needed for Malaysia....
Is it only me? OK, I knew about the arrest of the lawyers who wanted to meet their clients, who were arrested because they held a vigil outside Bricksfield Police Station in support of Wong Chin Huat but only now I get to watch the video taken of the whole ordeal.
The OCPD is REALLY the one who made me fume!!! And I wonder how can anyone respect the police force after seeing his face, listening to his "warnings" and looking at his actions????????

Gotta pray for Malaysia...

I'm limited Just look at me -
I'm limited And just look at you
You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda
So now it's up to you
For both of us - now it's up to you...
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you I have been changed for good
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime So let me say before we part
So much of me Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
(Glinda): Because I knew you
(Both): I have been changed for good
(Elphaba): And just to clear the air I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
(Glinda): But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share
(Both): And none of it seems to matter anymore
(Glinda): Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder Halfway through the wood
(Elphaba): Like a ship blown from its mooring By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood
(Both): Who can say if I've been Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been Changed for the better
(Glinda): And because I knew you...
(Elphaba): Because I knew you...
(Both): Because I knew you... I have been changed for good...

I do hope I changed for good.
NST has a headline : OBAMA SALUTES NAJIB
And when you read it......KUALA LUMPUR: United States President Barack Obama has congratulated Datuk Seri Najib Razak on his appointment as prime minister and said he looked forward to working closely with Najib in the years ahead.
Can someone enlighten me on the meanings of the two "bold"ed words above? Are they the same?

An interesting ride of thriller. Tom Hanks hair looked better than he did in Da Vinci's Code. The Israeli's female lead is less candy-like. And Ewan McGregor stole the limelight from Hanks.
An entertaining date, having all said.

OK... No emergency sitting now but Zambry was granted stay by Court of Appeal which at the end back to square one as well. So, at the end it will just a way to legitimise the removal of Siva as speaker, only a part of the grand plan? And Nizar and Regent just talked about weather and etc??? Gosh... How can???? Nizar might not want to provoke the Regent but this is definitely something wrong.
So, what's next? In a way, I think Zambry can call for emergency sitting with his newly-installed Speaker and get a no-confidence vote againts Nizar since they have the numerical strength.
Sigh~~~~ Back to square one???
Nizar is ruled to be the legitimate MB by the KL High Court. Of course... Zambry is expected to appeal.

"There were 31 of us, even without me there were, so we have the majority, this is democracy," said the Jelapang lawmaker, speaking in halting and bad Bahasa Malaysia when meeting reporters here today.
I'd imaine she probably said something like this :
"Kita ada sama tigapulo satu olang. Saya tada pun kita ada kasi itu majority la. Itu olang katakan demonkrasi la. Ya?"
Chris, tat's a great one!!!!!!!!!

I love the term fashion police coined by Malaysian Insider in their website : despite the high crime rate and one of their own tied up and robbed in Johor recently, the Royal Malaysian Police decided to ratchet up crime prevention by turning fashion police yesterday....

Childhood is the best time ever!!!!!!!!
