Hoist the Colors!

The discussion among family members at our mooncake festival dinner centered around the current political atmosphere that is shrouding our beloved country. As a husband as well as a father to three, I cannot help but fear for the future of my boys. My wife and I have contemplated a few times on whether to give up here and move to a better country. However, that would mean that I have to leave my extended family and friends behind. My boys will be devastated if they are to be separated from their grandparents and vice versa.

With that in mind, I think our fear for the unknown is no longer an option here. In my humble analysis, I believe that our local political arena is like a big chess set. On one side, we have:

  • latest! Resignation of the Minister of Law!
  • An incompetent and corrupted leader (not to mention a sleepy one) who’s rating has gone below 41%
  • A government that is weak and corrupted to its core
  • A corrupted enforcement force (this includes police, immigration, local authorities etc.)
  • A barely functioning judiciary
  • A leadership that is bend on using force and intimidation on its own citizens (ISA on three could just be the beginning)
  • A leadership that barely understands the word "economy"
  • A bunch of flip-flop ministers that either contradict themselves or one another in making major decisions that affect everyone of us (eg. when or how to raise/lower the fuel price)
  • A hypocrite government that still prefers the "divide-and-rule along racial line" policy practiced long time ago by our colonial powers although we were taught in school such policy was a BIG mistake
  • A leadership that choose to silence opposite views instead of countering them with sound arguments and facts
  • A leadership that is still haunted by the ghost of an ex-leader
On the other side of the ring, we observed:

  • A new and strong alternative to the existing government
  • A leader who profess equality among its people
  • A leadership that has yet to be tainted with corruption
  • A leadership that promise to improve our economy
  • A group of people that are banded together by common values and ideals
  • A group of people that represents the fruit of our 51 years of independence
  • A group of people that are bend on abolishing draconian laws
  • A group of people that stand by each other regardless of their ideals and belief
  • A group of people that vows to build a better tomorrow
Never before in 51 years of our country's history that all the pieces are so well-positioned. And believe me when I say we will not see another chance for another 51 decades.

It's not the time to be afraid, it's time to step forward and be counted.

It's time for us to unite as a nation!

It's now or never!

Yo, ho, haul together
hoist the colors high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars
never shall we die

Someone So Disgusting

In view with the current political climate, I came across a true story from Zorro.

The following scene took place on a BA flight between Johannesburg and London...

A White woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a Black man. Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess.

"Madam, what is the matter," the Hostess asked.

"You obviously do not see it then?" she responded. "You placed me next to a Black man. I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat."

"Be calm please," the Hostess replied. "Almost all the seats on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another seat is available."

The Hostess went away and came back a few minutes later.

"Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy class. I spoke to the Captain and he informed me that there are also no seats in the Business class. All the same, we still have one seat in First class."

Before the woman could reply, the Hostess continued: "It is unusual for our company to permit someone from Economy class to sit in First class. However, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting."

She turned to the Black man and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First class."

At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up and applauded.

I leave it to you to do your own reflection on the above story.

Prodigal Son Returns

Little Skywalker went on a long stay with my in-laws since Little Jack was born. Since he had much fun and put on weight during his last stay, we thought it would be best for him as well as for the rest of us.

He was away for almost 2 months, the longest so far. J calls him at least once every day to check on him, as well as to remind him that his parents still cares about him. According to my MIL, he is very happy there and has no problem eating his meals. She even asked if we want to put him to school at JB. We said we might consider it if all else fails back in KL.

Although Little Skywalker is naughty most of the time, but everyone still misses him badly when he is not around. He can really bring joy and laughter to the room when he is not in a bad mood. The house is livelier with him around

My in-laws brought him back to KL last weekend. The first thing I noticed about him is that he gains quite a bit of weight. I can barely carry him in my arms now. As for his character, nothing much has changed. He is still the same old mischievous and cunning little fella two months ago, except with more weight added to it. Nonetheless, everyone is very happy that he is back in KL again. We will be trying hard to get him to choose a school that he likes in the coming months.

Any good recommendations?
