Drinking bad coffee gives you chicken skin neck and red face and make you have silly grin and sit in front of cheap fan set against blank wall. Quite scary one.
Here I am. In Singapore. Friday morning. 3-in-1 bad instant coffee to start the day. Long day of shooting ahead. In other words, nothing better to do la. So? I turned on the laptop and proceeded to read the Malaysian newspapers online. Wah! Don't care la what you all say hor. It's good to read MY papers la. A lot of rib-tickling stuff in there everyday one. After playing a short game of eenie-mienie-moe I picked the New Straits Times today. So here goes......
IGP: Don't interfere in ruling on tomboys
Doesn't that headline just grab you by the balls when you're sipping your morning kopi-O? From the Inspector-General of Police you know. I've only met the fler one time when he was Deputy Public Prosecutor or something. He is a scary guy. And I am told that he is a very intelligent fler. Which makes him even more scary. So when he says DON'T INTERFERE! Better listen lor. Or at least read on to see what he got to say la.
Police have warned non-governmental organisations not to object to the National Fatwa Council ruling against tomboy behaviour.
Well, as a member of the rakyat my question is this. Since when has it become the duty of the police to warn citizens about what they are thinking or objecting to? Is this what they mean by a police state ah?
Inspector-General of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said the move by certain NGOs could affect the country's safety.
"Such protests can trigger dissatisfaction within the Muslim community and this could cause tension. "
I think people like Musa and the politicians cause enough tension and dissatisfaction for all of us Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Thank you very much.
I also read in the NST today that my old friend, Ronnie Liu was arrested for something that he allegedly did last year. Apparently, he tried to prevent police from carrying out their duties in sealing some hotel in Puchong! Anyway, in this latest Ronnie Liu-PDRM episode allegations have been made against the PDRM for being rather high-handed in the handling of what should have been a simple routine matter. Ok, you read, get a mental picture and decide if the PDRM were going a little overboard. Maybe.
Police yesterday denied allegations that Ronnie Liu was roughed up during his arrest at the lobby of the state secretariat on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Liu had asked why eight policemen had been sent to arrest him when he could have gone to the police station or court voluntarily if they had just called or written to him.
8 policemen were sent to arrest Ronnie Liu? Hahahaha...and they wonder why they don't have enough personnel to fight crime on city streets or direct traffic!!!??? Ok, for those of you who don't know Ronnie Liu, he isn't exactly The Terminator. And they arrested him in the lobby of the state secretariat??? Now just what were the PDRM flers trying to achieve here? And of course, the PDRM fler had to end things with a foot in his mouth...
Khalid said the law did not discriminate in its treatment of persons being detained and that the process was the same for everyone. "No one gets special treatment..."
Oh really??? No one gets special treatment issit? Where have you been living all these years? Zimbabwe?
In the latest example of Kerajaan-speak, Tourism minister, Azalina Othman Said, said (that's her name not my bad English)...
THE answer to Pempena Sdn Bhd's overseas restaurant business foray could lie in buying into existing successful restaurants that serve Malaysian food, instead of starting from scratch...
Typical isn't it? People are asking her to explain how her ministry's subsidiaries can lose multi-million Ringgits in bad investments overseas and she replies with something totally different.
Eh! Hello can tell us first how and why the millions were lost ah? Then we shall think about what we should do in future so as not to repeat the same stupid mistakes. One hole notchet cover want to dig another one for what?
By the way ah, the new term for misappropriating public funds is "not been showing the desired results". Good isnt' it? Very creative la. Anyway, I have always been suspicious about the minister's reasoning that people who go to a restaurant and say, "Hmmm...that was a delicious meal", will follow that up with, "Let's book our tickets for a holiday to May-lay-shuh!" But okay la. So, how did your ministry lose all those millions?
Wah! That took longer than I anticipated. Ok got to dump that bad coffee, shower and get to work.
p/s if they outlawed homosexuality and enforced the law and threw all gay people in jail...would there be some empty seats in parliament? Or fewer television shows maybe?
