Rainy Sunday stories

Rainy days and Sundays......

I am sure we all know about Padang Serai MP, N. Gobalakrishnan's weeks-old decision to quit the PKR, right? Now, read this Sunday Star story about that YB's decision to quit......

"After weeks of speculation, PKR's Padang Serai MP. N. Gobalakrishnan has resigned from the party."

The MP announced his decision yesterday. A day before the Tenang by-election. Remember the Sunday Star story said that the decision came "after weeks of speculation" which came as a result of his announcement of what he was going to do. But Gobalakrishnan chose the day before the by-election to make the decision final and official.  Now doesn't this raise some questions as to why he chose to make the official announcement one day before the Tenang polls?

1.      Could he have been busy with other matters?
2.      Was he still thinking about it until yesterday?
3.      Was he 'turned' and made to see the light?
4.      Was he made an offer he could not refuse?

It's a rainy Sunday. Frogs love rain don't they? This comment has nothing to do with the above post.


The Very-Bad-Choice-of-Name Award on this Sunday goes to Hishammuddin Hussein, the Home Minister for announcing that The Immigration Department will be the lead agency in the international crime training academy in Langkawi. (Didn't even know there was such an academy).  An international CRIME training academy??? Wow! I can just picture the characters in the queue at the doors of that academy!

Of course, the YB was just announcing an academy dedicated to COMBATING crime. But the name is kinda misleading isn't it? Maybe my Engrand not up to the mark lah.  Sorry ah.


Last year we read about and saw the gallant efforts of several groups of concerned young Malaysians who'd gotten together to organise campaigns to register Malaysian voters all over the country. Most of these groups were young Malaysians doing their patriotic duty contributing to the country's progress. I do not know how many voters they managed to register on their trail through shopping malls, sidewalks and mamak stalls but I salute their efforts.  So I wonder what they will say or how they will react to the news that the Election Commissioner's claim that young Malaysians make up the bulk of unregistered voters. The Tan Sri says that this was because our young flers have "an attitude of indifference, of political apathy." So now how my young Malaysian friends?


All good wishes to the good folks in Tenang. Happy voting. Stay safe. Vote well.

young malaysians are usually busy with their studies overseas, me being one of them.. While those graduated are contributing to the 'brain drain' phenomenon..

Najib sampai Salam

Salam 1Malaysia!

Saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Menyambut Tahun Baru Cina buat seluruh rakyat Malaysia, khususnya bagi mereka yang akan menyambut perayaan yang penuh dengan kemeriahan ini.

Setiap kali tibanya perayaan ini, saya masih terbayang kemeriahan dan keceriaan yang saya lalui semasa kecil. Sudah pasti saya tidak akan ketinggalan mengikut ibu bapa saya menziarahi rakan-rakan beliau yang berketurunan Cina. Makanan kegemaran semasa musim perayaan ini semestinya kuih kapit, kuih bangkit, tat nanas, kerepek "ngaku" manakala limau Mandarin sering menjadi pilihan utama. Teringat juga, sewaktu kecil adakalanya saya dihampiri oleh rakan-rakan ibu bapa yang menghulurkan angpow. Tetapi sekarang, suasana sudah berbeza. Hidangan sudah berubah, pelbagai juadah seperti sate, ais kacang, mi rebus dan maruku juga disediakan.

Semoga di Tahun Arnab ini, kita akan sentiasa berada dalam suasana penuh kemakmuran, kebahagiaan dan juga dianugerahkan kesihatan yang sempurna.

Selamat Tahun Baru Cina, Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Ikhlas daripada
Najib Razak & Keluarga

Salam 1Malaysia!

Happy Chinese New Year to all Malaysians who celebrate this auspicious event.

Each year as the season draws near I am reminded of the excitement and merriment I experienced as a child during Chinese New Year. Mum and dad would visit our Chinese friends, and I would always tag along. I always look forward to savouring the many delicacies, favorites being kuih kapit, kuih bangkit, pineapple tarts and "ngaku" crackers, with Mandarin oranges always on top of the list. A wide smile would cross my face when I received "angpows" from my parents' friends. Today, the celebrations have grown to include sate, ais kacang, mi rebus and maruku even!

May the Year of the Rabbit bring blessings of much happiness, good health and prosperity always. With new beginnings comes new opportunities and as we usher in the Lunar New Year, it is my sincere hope that you achieve success and satisfaction in all your undertakings. Your accomplishments are reflective of our nation's triumphs, and may we always excel beyond expectations!

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Najib Razak & Family

Honest John said...

Aiyoh ! Anon Why so naive one. All these pirates are much admired in M'sia. Might bring back fond memories of family histories for some big-time M'sians. They then give PR and citizenship to these somali muslims. They then vote BN. Get it ?

Bro Pat, your "no price increase and same size portions" bring back memories for me. A lady once told me if there is not enough soup for everyone, just add more water !!!
Does your "same size portions" have more water, bro Pat ? Now, now , don't say I don't understand engrand OK ?

Happy CNY to you.

Hello Eric yang sesat jalan

Apa itu Salam 1Malaysia bila umno masih melaungkan Ketuanan Melayu dan konsep Tanah Melayu?

Semua tipu helah?
