Where got? I was buka puasa-ing at a function in KL.
While driving home this morning I heard on the radio that today is International Day of Happiness. So be happy everybody! Laugh. Have a wonderful day.
And while browsing the news today I also found that there is much to laugh at and laugh about today. For instance, there is almost conclusive proof that Dr. Mahathir is not senile. He is in fact in full control of his mental capacities and has a good sense of humor.
When launching Rosmah Mansor's 180-paged biography (I would have thought she'd be able to fill more) Mahathir suggested that the biography be distributed to schools as a guide for future generations “100 or 200 years from now”. A guide for future generations??? Yup the old doctor said that it was "...to make sure that our chilren are able to read from the other side." The news portal did not elaborate on what he exactly meant by "reading from the other side." Told you. The old man is funny.
On that same page there is another story full of laughs. When questioned at the book launch about her alledged involvement in the Altantuya murder Rosmah said that she was not involved as “I was at the Tabung Haji building from evening till midnight.There were many eyewitnesses there”.
So there you go. She cannot be involved because she was at a function in KL. Errrr...but...oh...never mind la. We take your word for it. You were not there so you were not involved. Ok. Hahahahaha...sorry I couldn't help it.
And her 180-paged biography is selling for RM150!!! That's RM1.20 per page. I wonder if it will topple Kee Thuan Chye from the best-seller list soon?
I have only met former cabinet minister, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil once. At the launch of a TV movie. I was surprised at how large a woman she is. Yes, she is big. Anyway, that isn't the funny bit. The laughs are from the reports of her testimony at the ongoing legal suit against the PKR's Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin and Mohd Rafizi.
Shahrizat said that the NFCorp, helmed by her husband had bought a RM534,622 Mercedes-Benz in 2009 as a company car. And the reason for buying such an expensive luxury car? Please hold on to your chair because you might fall off laughing...she said that NFCorp was a “big enterprise” that was visited by important foreign guests. And I suppose the Merc would suitably impress those foreign flers. She also implied that although the Merc costs more than RM500,000 there were 4 directors in the company but they only bought 1 Merc. Okay ma. Not greedy osso.
And then how come her husband and sons bought a condominium in Singapore using NFC money? Her explanation to a layman like me sounds hilariously funny. She alledgedly said that since NFC money was lying around idle, due to some reason beyond their control, the directors thought it was a good idea to invest the money to make some quick returns and that the condo was in their personal names because NFC being a start-up company could not get loans.
She is suing those 2 flers for RM100million. Wah! If she wins she can buy quite a number of condominiums man. And to think that I almost ate at a Meatworks restaurant once . Brrrrrr......
In his state-of-the-nation address prime minister Najib said, “The people of Malaysia must choose between ... a government that will continue proven policies, or the other side who speak with a forked
tongue, who take people’s trust lightly”. Eh? Funny right? Whose side is he on? Hahahahahaha...
The rest of the laughs International Day of Happiness today is provided by our prime minister. He announced, among other things, that crime rates are down... the seven National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) in the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) have succeeded in addressing the needs of the people... in fact almost everything is good la. And after telling us not to whine so much about giving up subsidies on sugar, petrol, diesel etc. and not to be addicted to dependence on subsidies he announced that the BR1M cash handouts would be a yearly affair from now. To buffer the effects of rising costs of living wor.
I am not sure I can take so much happiness in one day la.
