Malaysian Election 2008 - Malaysians ready for change

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'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.

Marsha...yes, the wind of change has finally come to Malaysia! Enough of ridiculous Tolls, Petrol prices, High inflation, unfair special treatment to a certain type of race etc....the list goes on and on and on.

I am a proud Rocket voter...and I rejoiced like a maniac whenever I hear Pembangkang won on TV yesterday til 2am this morning.

If you think those Barisan Najis wakil rakyat are angels...think again. They are like syaitan mroe than angels.

Malaysians do not want to be bullied anymore. Enough is enough! Barisan Najis is gonna lose even more of its power in the next election.

Ya are 'lain-lain'. I always forget that somehow. You can speak Hokkien, Hakka, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Malay and etc...respect! respect!

anon, judging from the way you write and things you say, I can only guess that you are 'killer'. You're right, Barisan Najis really kena flush down the toilet, man. You rejoice until 2am only ah???? I still rejoicing till 4am until they finally ta-pow the whole election announcement! :-) Ya-lor....lain-lain damn kesian, you know. I think I must form a new parti with other lain-lains, then only fair.

terrence, Yes, you're right. Tomorrow work....and from here on, we will have to adopt the wait and see what these buggers can do and how they are going to stand up against Barisan Najis and fighting for our rights. Eh, no doubt about it liao lor.....the Indian man who celebrated his birthday and has a special single snake to cover his bald 'spot' hairstyle is gone for real....forever. No hopefully! It's confirmed. Even his own race also condemn him until he's not worth 2 to come back....unless, of course, he smart like Anwar (phui-nuar *spit in Hokkien* is more like it) and Abd-ular, field sister, mother, in-law, out-law, father, grandfather, daughter, son, grandkids....everybody go for election. Maybe lidat he can come back lor. but at least we don't have to see his stupid korek korek korek face!

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

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

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
