Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Tempestuous Times Jul 24, 2008

This morning the news continues to induce fluctuating reactions to myself and my colleagues as we read and chat about what's going on with Malaysia our homeland ... *SIGH* I have to agree with Gavin, our country is going to the dogs - although, me thinks dogs would better run this country than those who helm it now ... and those who aspire to run it.

If you're in Jasin and Tangkak, apparently this is the current rage Chikungunya Fever Rumours. But reading the news kinda gave me an uneasy feeling. Somehow in Malaysia we like to pretend nothing is wrong, ignore the obvious and later blame the unseen Almighty for the fate that befalls its people. So if anything seems a little outta sorts with you healthwise, go get looked into. Do some reading so that you can ask informed questions to your doctors.

But having said that, the mass vomiting of locally trained medical personnel who have neither compassion nor passion for the job since by virtue of birthright and bad results they got Medicine as their university major, sometimes, they've never even heard of things they ought to know. But I admit, there are still a few passionate ones in there who make a world of difference, as opposed to the indifferent medical fraternity in general.

For information sake Chikungunya Fever is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedes Mosquito. Read this and this for extra information. Better informed than ignorant and paranoid.

Inflation is up in Malaysia, at a 27year record high. The Consumer Price Index jumped in June to 7.7% from May's figure of 3.8% ... but all is not lost. The Government reminds us that in 1981 April this shot to 10.8% - to the Rakyat who is already burdened we've got a lot more in store for us ... *sigh*

Thankfully they acknowledged it was the increased cost of petrol and diesel that's shot this up and likely to remain the same with the electricity tariff hikes this month as well. YAY! Is there any good news out there this morning?

Apparently not. One despondent man with divorce looming over his head, took the lives of his 4 and 1 year old children before hanging himself. I am left a little baffled here. Did he need company in the netherworld or was killing his two innocent children the bravado boost he needed to end his own life? My own long drawn separation has taken me to some real painful lows as I struggled to come to terms with things but to kill my kids and myself? Errrrr no thank you. But I shall not pass judgment. He has his motivations for his actions. I hope the peace he was seeking is his now. I know I continue to search for mine ... and remain hopeful.

Th recent Teregganu Perdana V6 dumped for Merc E200 Kompressor has got Proton all ruffled feathers. And I know a friend who drives a 10year old V6 ... he's never spent 175K on his car in all those years - so really I think the MB of Terengganu better stop trying to justify his in your face show of pervert opulence and self indulgence. The Rakyat are not too happy knowing good hard earned tax payers money is going to your car purchases. Cheaper maintenance indeed - my big fat toosh!

I don't believe half the things I read or hear these days, especially if there's a political leaning to it. But this UMNO-PAS courting yet again is rather funny. It's like the least favourite consort that holds the trump in hand ... so here we go again. Another round of blah blah and then fizzle I suppose. Depends on who emerges a winner of sorts or will old stalemates prevail.

I just realised it's almost the end of July (tiny pay cheque time) and that gives wanna be PM Anwar some 45 days to take over the Government. Anyone has a report card on how his defections are faring? I saw one this morning. Former Kuantan MP has crossed over. I suppose the operative word here is 'former' hence he's not in Parliament. Hmmmm

Then someone said to me that Anwar has changed his tune slightly now about Barisan Alternative winning majority by Malaysia Day September 16th 2008 - apparently he 'never' said it. I am scouring the net to see where and what Anwar has recently said on this gauntlet thrown to the BN clowns ... which got them all shitty pants and up to mischief (well Opposition supporters insist all the Anwar drama is BN stupidity - I dunno about this one). If he has changed his tune in view of what's on-going, why am I not surprised at all. Afterall Anwar Chameleon is an infamous species.

Thursday and so much drama ... I've got some of my own coming up. My minds creaking on overdrive a little. Am a little worried, a little excited. But I do believe things are going to get better ... maybe I can give this Law of Attraction a bit of a try - I noticed some tiny experiments had interesting results heehhe now to make it work for me instead of against me.

Catch you'll tomorrow maybe ... cheers.
