The political wrestle is over, here in Malaysia, and thankfully too because it earned me a hangove from watching the news, and reading all the readily available blogs on cyberspace all night long. With a spilting headache from squinting into the PC screen, watching the TV for news on the results from the ballot boxes, anxiety, uncertainty and HOPE lingers in the air..... BN, our ruling party in Malaysia, who has been flexing its political muscles for a long time now with the confident (and ever sleepy and gay) PM convincing Malaysians that BN is the only way to peace. Opposition cannot hold the fort properly, though, because the formation and coalition between them is too loose. But with BN denied the 2/3 majority it needed, all I can say is that Pak Lah tore a tendon while flexing his political muscles. Fed up, fed up, fed up - Malaysians are fed up A lot of Malaysians chose not to vote for the oppositition IN THE PAST because we wanted unity, we resisted change because of a date we chose to remember, May 13, 1969. Malaysian Chinese and Indians resisted change and chose BN simply because it was SAFE. But with Pak Lah's 'superb' performance as Malaysia's Prime Minister, we decided FED UP LAH DIS FLER!!! He too comfortable in his seat liao, let's heat it up for him a little bit. Now Malaysian Chinese & Indians have more voice and are given, possibly, a fairer chance at opportunities Nobody knows what lies in the future; everythings in a blur right now as the political powers clean-up the masacre scene left by the elections. BN holds fort in Parliament but in many states, even if things don't go as smooth-sailing as planned, Malaysians finally have a CHANCE of leading a fairer existance in the country. No more holding back It's strange how Malaysian Chinese and Indians managed to hold back anger over disparity of power distribution (bloody blatant ones) and unfairness of everything else under Pak Lah's control (and also Mahathir lah, actually) all these years....for fear of social chaos. The dissatisfaction of the nation often only surface over a couple of carlsberg or todi in hush-hush tones because the people in power like to put plaster over people's mouth whenever they criticize the government. I found this, and still find this, totally unbelievable. Tony Blair, Clitor.....sorry, Clinton, Bush....all of them take public criticisms in their strides! Our Pak Lah likes to tell people to 'shut up!' all the time. Sing songs, kena. Write rap songs about it, kena, Write blog, kena. Peaceful demonstration, kena! Everything kena. You don't kena only when you sit there quietly and let him sleep and go on holiday. A bold move or the wrong one? We don't know, do we? Ask the bomoh, maybe. The potential danger or chaos hangs in the air - but so's does the hope of change, fairness and political equality among the other two minority races. But hang on a minute....all this while, I thought I was Chinese.....but actually, I am categorized under Lain-Lain!!!! Eh, Lain-Lain don't have representative leh, how????? I found this video totally funny....it's a song, no videos or anything but the lyrics damn kow funny, man. Very creatively and tastefully done. Hopefully, the maker of this video won't get slapped with whatever law they manage to pull out of their library of laws.
Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?' ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'. Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling. So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto
