Geez.My last post was on Merdeka Day. How very cruel of me. But the truth is I have not been lazy but doing other things. Just so I do not get bored with life, which I so often do, even though great things are happening here.

Sometimes, I am overwhelmed by what is happening. Since returning to Malaysiakini, I’d have to ‘chase’ for stories too. Takes a lot of time, and at the end of day, after writing 2-3 stories, do I have the energy to say more?

I hope I can be forgiven for this.

But I have been actively sketching (e.g. image on this post is one of my latest creations) and coloring some new artwork which I want to share with you. It’s all I could do at the moment, due to time and space constraints which makes it impossible for me to produce large canvasses:

Meditation

Something to do with Baby Dumping, but titled Untitled.

Altantuya? That’s what most of my Facebook friends thought.

The eye.

A tiger never sleeps.

And I have been active on facebook, though I am reluctant to catch up with Twitter. Am I beginning to feel that blogs are so yesterday?

I owe people a lot of work, including a book review on “Found in Malaysia” by The NUTGRAPH, which I am yet to accomplish. Sigh. I’ve been flipping through and reading some pages on this great collection of interviews from time to time.

Sometimes, you need a book like this to remind you “Hey, Malaysia ain’t so bad after all”. Haha.

Since I have been (not silent as you might think) away from this blog, several things have caught the attention and riled up the imagination of citizens – The Musa Hassan retirement; Teoh Beng Hock’s inquest; PKR elections and the continuing allegations against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng; Gerakan’s soon to be gerak-less and the rising of resident evil Perk(a)osa. What about the letting off of the ‘racist’ Kedah principal?

Cosmetic tycoon Soosilawati’s and three others’ murder was shocking and bizzare. Much like how Altantuya’s murder also shocked me.  But nothing shocks me more than how the papers are going round in frenzied circles to unravel facets of the murder case.

Meanwhile, some good things are happening – like the National Union of Journalists wanting to take up not only ‘bread and butter’ issues but “press freedom’ issues as well.

Hahaha. Isn’t this high time! ? But lets hope the new leadership stands courageous enough to pursue this ideal dream. Lets hope it does not turn into a nightmare for them

After reading about the real face of the MSM (as if we didn’t know already) – read Nazri Aziz ‘spewing his wrath‘ at Utusan Meloya oops Malaysia, I feel so glad to be at Malaysiakini.

Here, we have no political bosses, this much is the truth.

And yes it is a challenge sometimes to balance our (my) stories as Umno politicians and their alliances have openly told me “we do not want to speak to you because you are from Malaysiakini”, I will live with that.

And I might just add next time: It is your loss not mine🙂

    ” “we do not want to speak to you because you are from Malaysiakini” ”

    Also translatable as:

    “In 1Malaysia, to know your place, bodek me!”

    1Malaysia isn’t about equality sez Ku Nan.

    We long knew.

    It’s about knowing your place!

    Awww certainly you are zillion times better than the sumatran rhino at the malay mail who goes by the moniker Ahiruddin`s (snigger) Atan who is a staunch supporter of Perkasa and vile utusan.

    ““The police investigating officer admits he did not verify if the sample used to compare the handwriting belonged to Teoh Beng Hock.””

    This recalls to memory how Dopey Lah used to say, “I dunno” whenever he was asked various questions of importance when he was serving as DPM under Mahathiu.

    Thus, “I dunno” became firmly established a a logical and legit answer to many things in Boleh, and only in Bolehland!

    Damn you, idiot, if U dunno, find out!

    How could a modern society countenance such crap?! This is the state of decadence/deep sh*t we’re already in!

    “This recalls to memory how Dopey Lah used to say, “I dunno” ….”

    “I dunno” is essential to the crutched ones.
    Having achieved that, the next is “I don`t remember”.

    18 Ogos 99 – Karpal Singh yang jelas marah mendakwa SAC 1 Musa Hassan sebagai “berbohong di mahkamah”, berkata Hakim Datuk Arifin Jaka patut mengambil tindakan segera dan memerintahkan Musa di penjarakan.
    “Ini bukan bahan ketawa”, kata Karpal kepada Musa yang dilihat tersengih dan ketawa. “Polis Senior tidak boleh datang ke mahkamah dan menipu dan Hakim seakan membenarkannya”

    If only Najib was aware of the level of intolerance some Malays have for non-Malays and non-Muslims. I don’t expect him to know what happens at the ground level and I doubt if his advisers and close associates tell him the truth..

    Fewer Malays visit non-Malay open houses for the various festivals. The issue is not just with food. Some object to visiting places where there is a shrine. A few refuse to eat off crockery and cutlery that has ‘touched’ pork. Others worry about the content of the soap with which to wash their hands. Many Malays are oblivious to how their non-Malay colleagues go out of their way to accommodate Malay sensitivities. Sometimes, even the best efforts are in vain.

    The majority of the people in the shop were Malays and as I walked in, some smiled at me and looked at my clothes which were still wet. I chatted with some of them and they were very friendly. I saw a Chinese girl hugging a Malay woman sharing an umbrella, while other office workers of different races came in together to have their lunch.

    The majority of us on the ground are simple people and when situations arise, we can gather in a friendly manner, stand close to each other and communicate easily together.

    The ruling government, controlled by Umno, must put a stop to all kinds of racism put in place and practiced by its top leaders, Umno, Perkasa, multi-media and NGOs.

    We can all live together as Malaysians anywhere in this country called Malaysia. We do not need for “1Malaysia” to unite the people.
