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

Euro 2008 Over ... June 30, 2008

Aside from the fact that EURO'08 is over and Spain is celebrating the end of an international drought of 44 years ... we've also come to the half way mark of the 2008.

Quite significant if you ask me. Look at what all has happened in the first 6 months of this year.

The most significant being Election'08 results ... what an interesting display of united 'RAKYAT SUDAH MUAK' but also interestingly is how all that angst against a Government has now enfolded more interesting sub-drama plots.

Anwar as usual had to have a major chunk of it all. So there he is again with another aide blowing the whistle on him and his err how shall I say this ... deviant preferences? This being the most recent like fresh off the presses. He's soooooooo freaking important, that he fears for his life and thus is holed up in the Turkish Embassy - ok!

Then more sub-plot drama from the Lingam saga, the Altantuya Saga with more garam masala and spice thrown in The Bold and The Beautiful pales in comparison to never ending, jaw breaking yawning type mini series!

Tun M is now the most hated (wait he's been on that list for a long time). I on the other hand even in admitting that yeah Tun M was quite the politician and hard fisted no nonsense 'dictator' for the lack of a better word ... he was and still remains undeniably the sharpest mind this country will ever see in terms of vision and leadership.

There were worms but most of the time the worms were still in their cans. But WHOA! what have we here now ... worms everywhere damnit! Jijik betul!

If Tse Tse Bitten Beauty was supposedly the one to set things right - well lookie here ... isn't it all so fine and dandy now. All roses man! All roses. Yes I heard ya - give the man a chance he's got 22 years of undoing to repair - but how is it in 1 term of Office, we are like Ye God! WTF is happening here.

And this is just 2008 at the half way mark. I shudder to think what 2008 at the end point is going to be reflecting. I am very afraid. We got 'framed' buggering enthusiasts promising heaven and earth if we trust his leadership. We have No 1, No 2, No 2.5 (the one who really wears the pants) , we've our now Tamil Terrorists equivalents , we have our Keris waving supremacists (thankfully better sense prevailed the last time round), we have Ministers with so much under the carpet we're tripping over the mounds.

Careful more bodies might surface at the rate we're going. We have lost children never to be found. Murdering someone is a pass time it seems and life is only about RM500 to snuff out - or so the whispers in the grapevines say. You don't like his face - murder is always an option.

Unfathomable increase in crime rates. Unacceptable rise to basic necessities, burdening people more and more. Rapes, suicides, robberies ... is this the Malaysia 2020 we're working towards?

I am up in arms in despair for my country. Over the weekend every chat pal I spoke with made some reference to the prevailing insanity of this country. Trust me the news out there is anything but favourable to us. I know the generation of my parents and even to an extent my peers - we've worked hard, sacrificed a lot to bring this country to some level of global presence.

And now, we're all undone. All they know about us is we have an Opposition Leader who is accused of buggery, we have one Indian hiding in the UK whilst the rest are warming up Hotel Kamunting seen as terrorists, we have some Chinese ex-minister shamed into leaving politics because he answered a basic instinct in a hotel room with someone other than his wife ... and we're the first people to send a pretty boy into space and demand he be called an astronaut ...

Scary times indeed, very scary.

But what else is there to do for the you and me? Not much else really. Dig in our heels and try to keep abreast with all the Dog Wagging that's going on - I am sure there must be a light at the end of this tunnel. When, I don't know ... together then we wait.

~.ani says here's to 2H'08 - may we keep our sanity and jobs intact!~
