Let’s talk politics…

I have a few things to say about this:

IMO, to be a SUCCESFUL leader in this country, you have to LISTEN to your people, but VETO when you make decisions. Reasons:

  • You can’t please everyone. When you are giving too much options for your people, that’s when the whole group will get back at you like a swarm of bees. You will never be able to give every single person in the country what they want.
  • People like Dr M was able to control his crowd because he vetoed. Although some people might disgaree with the way he hold his fortress, but hey, he did it for how many years again? No offense to Pak Lah’s supporters, but he is too soft. The son in law outshines him. And I bet you, the only thing that we will remember about Pak Lah when he is done is the fact that he got married during his tenure. Again… The keyword here is CONTROL…

For the oppositions, here are some advices:

  • Don’t go promising people that you will lower the oil price. That will never happen. The prices for goods are all based on the world economy. If you don’t sell the oil at a price that is based on the world economy, where will we get our revenues from? Minyak kelapa? What you can do is set up labs and do research for alternative fuel or oil sources…
  • Stop pointing out the government’s weaknesses. Instead, list out the positive things that you can give the people. Example: instead of “The goverment fail to lower the fuel price”, say “We will look into alternative fuel sources”…
  • And you might ask, “How the hell will the oppositions get funding for their research?”… If they really want to rule the country, they will have to find a way to get the cash… Heheheheh…

These are only my humble opinions. And NO, I’m still not voting this year…

Cruel to be kind

I’m devastated since last nite. Remember the kitten? The one that was left out in front of my house by some idiots? Those idiots are really going to end up in my ‘to-kill list’. The kitten didn’t want to feed or eat so I took her to the vet. Since I couldn’t take care of her (too small…. I think she’s about 2 – 3 weeks old), I’ve decided to seek the vet’s opinion. I know for a fact that if I couldn’t keep her, the vet will put her to sleep. I was being rational and tried my best NOT to get emotionally attached to the kitten (hence, me not naming the kitten). I don’t really know how to take the whole ‘mercy killing’ thingy, but then the vet said, ‘If you don’t intend to take care of the kitten, will you leave her in front of somebody else’s house? Or by the road side? Let all the dogs eat her or let her die of starvation? I know you find this hard and I wish I could take her to my house too, but you have to be cruel to be kind. She’s only 2 weeks old and most probably won’t survive another week without the mother’s milk. Why don’t you just leave her here and I’ll take care of it…’. At that point, I didn’t look back and left………………………

It’s really unfair but I know I can’t save ALL the kittens/cats in the world. This is actually the 5th kitten I’ve sent to be put to sleep. I was just being rational instead of emotional. But no matter how much rationale I put into it, I pray to God that I will never have to do it again.

p/s: the photo above is a perfect paw print the kitten left me in her box…. 😦

… and then, we got super tired…

 dsc00864.jpg

Last week was one heck of a week. I had 3 days to finish up 2 weeks worth of work. And the travelling back to Kuantan wasn’t helping me to relax. I mean, the thought of hitting the waves in Teluk Chempedak was great but the 3 hours car ride was a killer. And then, Khadeeja got sick… I think she’s teething (I dunno how many times I have said that). She had fever and was coughing… Me, being so paranoid about her sickness, couldn’t get any decent sleep for the past few days. I kept putting cooling gel on her forehead and rubbing vicks all over her… And now, I’M SICK! I’m down with a nasty cough and I’m certain that a fever is surely on the way.

Anyhow, how is everybody doing? What did you do on CNY holiday? Any good stories to share (by ‘story’, I mean gossip)? Here’s a quick update on what’s happening around us:

  • Al-Fatihah to Huda’s mother. She passed away last Saturday. Our prayers are with her…
  • Went back to Kuantan and get to see our new niece (Abu’s sister gave birth last 2 weeks). The new girl goes by Adriana Balkis. Beautiful name… Congratulations to Kak Izan and Abang Mie…
  • I went ‘Kitty Shopping’ with Su Yin yesterday. Her aunt got 19 cats and there’s 8 kittens to be given away. I already booked 2. If you are interested, gimme a call…
  • My new Gryffindor jacket arrived yesterday! Yeay!!!!! I got it from ebay and it’s all that I imagine it should be.
  • I still haven’t seen Sweeney Todd. According to Jo, it’s a zzzZZZzzzzz movie (and very dark). I’m only there to watch Johnny Depp. Who cares about the plot (no offense Tim Burton sir… Your movies are excellent!).
  • I want to go to a spa… 😦
  • I want to go to the Carribean…
  • I want to sleep 8 hours tonite without interruption.
  • Someone buang anak kucing in front of my house last nite and I kept thinking about the kitten and this morning they actually move the kitten from the front to the back, right behind my room, so that I could hear the little thing screaming and now I have to rescue the kitty…. Very cruel… If you don’t want your cats, you just need to send them to SPCA. Do not put them infront of other people’s place!!!!

 That’s about it for today… I promise I’ll write more interesting stuff this week. Someone actually send me an sms asking me to update my blog…. Heh…

Busy

Too much to do. Too little time to do it. So I leave you with this:

IMO, he was and still the best Superman ever… I will update my blog again, once I’m done with all my reports… And yes Cat/Shanky, I DO HAVE THINGS TO DO.

They are back!

I don’t kno if you guys heard, but NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK is making a comeback! I love them. I’ve loved them back in 1990 (that’s when I was exposed to them), and I still love them now. I still think Jordan Knight is one of the sexiest man alive. I never fancy Joey McIntyre. He’s too cute. Donnie Wahlberg was the coolest. Danny Wood was the best dancer among them. And Jonathan Knight was tall…. Really, really tall… Maybe because I was small. I mean, I’m still very small, but I was even smaller back then. I’m bloody excited about this whole comeback thingy. Most definitely will be buying their album instead of downloading it for free. I’m so giddy now… Better go and sleep before I start searching for their concerts and video clips….. If you wanna listen to a snippet of their new single, click here.
