Measured calm of experience? Vibrant energy of new ideas? Grounding in anti-corruption and human rights law? Appreciation for dynamism of private sector?
Phwaaaar!!! Sound damn terror, right? But for an ordinary Malaysian like me it just sounds like politic-speak. Well, you can go look at the photos of the new cabinet lineup and decide if you can see any measured calm of whatever, detect any vibrant energy of any kind....I haven't figured out what 'appreciation for dynamism of private sector' actually means to us folks yet.
Okay, so Najib says his new cabinet brings a "grounding in anti-corruption..." (whatever that actually means la) but the new cabinet line-up includes a man who was sacked from Umno in 1995 for alledgedly paying RM6million to secure a position as Umno division cheif. This new deputy minister of agriculture was also alledged to have used corrupt means to gain the award of a RM1.3 billion contract to his own company.
Hiyoh!!! I don't know la. Maybe emigration isn't such a bad idea. Okay...I am going back to learning my script for the show tonight. Can't read these news anymore la.
Why am I not hopeful or excited about the appointment of the new Communications and Multi-media minister. That Shabery Cheek fler. I guess I shouldn't hold my breath about being back on radio anytime soon. Sigh.
Have you noticed that a lot of Malaysians never say what they actually mean the first time they say it? Indelible ink is not indelible? No what we meant was that indelible ink in Malaysia has to be Halal and contain less silver nitrate. That's why our indelible ink is slightly delible la. Then why you never say in the beginning? Jihad? No, no, no I didn't mean Jihad like in go to war and kill people. I just meant that jihad can also mean righting wrongs and bringing things to the correct way. Then why you didn't say in the beginning? If you don't like it you can fuck off to another country. No, no, no. What I meant was that Malaysia's voting system follows the Westminster one. First past the post and etc. So if Malaysians want to live under a different system then they have to emigrate to another country that has the system they want. Then why you didn't say in the beginning?
Something tells me that we are going to have the most back-tracking, back-peddling cabinet in history. Enjoy!
I was wondering whether there was a cut of beef that we have not managed to can yet. There isn't.
