Thought of the day

I thank whatever gods may be / For my unconquerable soul. / I am the master of my fate / I am the captain of my soul. ~William Ernest Henley, Invictus

Government's promises are like the Ringgit, they depreciate with time.

OMG! What is happening back in my homeland??!!

It's not like I have nothing to do but to scourge each and every doings or sayings of the ministers or MPs...but with the headlines I saw these days while reading homeland news on the Internet, I can't abstain myself from asking,"WTF is wrong with our country?"

Man in critical condition after car is shot 30 times
"A businessman is fighting for his life after his vehicle was shot at more than 30 times by assailants trailing him for about 200 metres."
"...semi-automatic guns were used in the attack..."

Remark: Stay cool man...if the C4 is out there, semi-automatic is nothing, ok? Relax, our home is still a safe and peaceful land as claimed by some MPs.

Sheikh Muszaphar among recipients of Negri state awards
"Dr Sheikh Muszaphar was sent to space aboard the Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft on Oct 10 last year."
"He is among 18 people receiving the award, which carries the title Datuk."

Remark: Yeah, sent a tourist to space and award him Datukship. Great! Now his name is longer than ever: Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al Masrie bin ...whatever lar. Thought the awards are for those who had contributed significantly to the country in particular areas? I wonder what was his? He didn't even shared the results of the experiments conducted while he was at the ISS because due to his neg(intel)ligence the specimens were shattered during the landing process...But do we really need the results for some experiments which had been carried out before time by western researchers. If we really need to know the outcome, we could just read their publications, right? And, so why do we send him to space then? Go stack up your pillow high high and think about it...I don't know, I really don't.

By the way, if he gets to become a Datuk, what about those who help him to succeed in his quest? Who? The TAXPAYERS...shouldn't all of them be awarded the Datuk Seri title then? If you send me to space, you can call me Nenek if you want to.

Federal Government to help revive funicular service
"The Federal Government will help finance the project to repair and revive Penang Hill's funicular service, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi."

Remark: Let's give our brilliant PM a round of applause! (*claps...) He has done it again! What a brilliant idea to alleviate the burden of the rakyat due the sharp cut in petrol subsidy. Instead of building the second Penang bridge faster (due to the lack of government fund) and let the rakyat waste petrol in traffic jams, we should go ahead to perk up the Penang Hill's train service (since we actually have the money). What a flip-flop statement?!

Erm, one stupid question...why leh? Man, this is a damn stupid question! It's a kind of public transport mah and by doing so, it will benefit those who take the train up and down Penang Hill to get to work which constitutes up to a grand total of 0.00001% of Penang...Never mind, Guan Eng, the point is, it's still a Penang Mega-peanut Project by the Federal mah...Must be grateful...

Loh: PKR rep’s aide punched me
"Loh approached the organisers of the function to discuss with them the protesters' concern when he was allegedly punched in the face by a man believed to be an aide of a fellow PKR member..."

Remark: As the famous quotes by Datuk Ong Tee Keat (VP of MCA) goes, "内斗内行,外斗外行(Good at internal dispute, Poor at fencing off external threats)" Another barbaric act by another sus barbatus.

More bikers, accidents on the road
"...motorcyclists and pillion riders who died in road accidents had increased by 211 cases during the first six months of the year, from 1,728 last year..."

Remark: Oh...this is just the trend and there's nothing that we can do except paying some lip service.

Shafie: Wrong to demand return of artefacts
"Although Malaysia can claim to be the rightful owner of historical documents kept overseas, it is not right to demand that they be returned, said Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal."

Remark: Yes, if you can't keep such important documents properly, it's better to have someone to safekeep it for you. Remember how we failed to produce the letter to prove our sovereignty over Pulau Batu Puteh?

This is just for today...Not to mentioned the furore for the past few weeks involving the DPM and opposition leader. For all you know, I don't really care if Najib or Rosmah did blasted some Mongolian girl or if Anwar is into BrokeBack Mounting...But if some satanic, cold-blooded murderer is going to take over the premiership of Bolehland by 2010, I wouldn't mind if the next PM is gay, too!

seriously.. they r a disgrace. i wonder wat is national pride.

Gnu said...

National pride is sending someone to space for "nothing"...and confer the bugger Datukship. Our 90 year old athlete also didn't get any recognition and you know why? Oh, he didn't manage to shoot the shuttle cock into space. Read here from uncle lim:

BTW, PAS and UMNO are having muzakarah or mukazarah or murafakar...watever..I am keeping my fingers cross...
