I wonder what you think of this campaign. It calls for 500, 000 online handshakes to be sent all the way to Beijing which hosts the Olympics on 8.8.08.  

“With this handshake, we reach out to one another as citizens round the world in the Olympic spirit of friendship and excellence, committing to hold all our governments to a higher standard of peace, justice and respect for human dignity wherever they fall short – be it in Tibet, Iraq, Burma or beyond. Dialogue is the best way forward, for China, and the world.” (Avaaz.org)

By the way, this campaign was sent to me by an Asian, a Malaysian to be exact. Thank you, Michael Chai.

Happy Sunday. It’s 4.20am, and I want to go to sleep 😦

    Not in the mood for the olympics. We must admit that the world is getting worse by the day and people are just pretending with a mask on.

    I couldn’t care less about the Olympics. I have given up on our Badminton players a long time ago. As for human dignity, 20 years after Tianamen Square the Chinese have come full circle. Money is thicker than blood. And whether the US or China wins more gold medals doesn’t make a shred of difference.
    Except to themselves.

    As it so happens, neither do I, hahaha! Not even normal sports which have been promoted like a diversionary drug for the masses.

    Rkp, Feroz, wits0 opiated oredi? Guess everyone’s glued to the idiot box except the few of us, and if we are, we’ll be watching the ‘shits’ that’s happening in Georgia. What to do, otherwise we’ll drown in sorrow…

    keep up the good work, Great Middle Kingdom. Thanks for the one world one dream. All the best to all athletes of the world……

    As to Bolehland, time to be colonized again….. no future under the kampong/new village/ estate mindset of politics…..

    Stop disparaging the Great Dragon of Middle Kingdom before the Great Dragon teaches you a big lesson….. stupid katak di bawah temputung….. kia kia kia kia…….

    I wouldn’t be interested in the Olympics had it been held elsewhere either.

    The olympics is overshadowed by the Russian invasion of Georgia. And the CSI (China Shanghai Index) has dropped to below the 2500 mark, with room to fall further. BobbyNZ lost his pants in Beijing.
