I was at Melaka the other day, guess who I bumped into on Jonker? Ronnie Liu. (Remember? the DAP drink water guy)

He smiled at me, I smiled at him. (He wouldn’t have thought I was from Klang as well la. As a matter of fact, we met in the lounge of a Golf Club when I was the member & he was the VIP just few months before) This tells you, the elections are coming. Road shows are going on around the country. Pakatan & BN.

Back to the main topic. We all need a change. We can’t teach an old dog new tricks, so why not change the dog breeds for a while. Get some fresh ideas, new people & solid personalities.

We live in an age where when our smartphones die, we can’t function normally for a day. But people governing us are giving us old ideas, old policies. They can’t seem to agree on what baby boomers, generation X and generation Y wants. Collective ideas are never there.

Why ban concerts & books? The TV & Internet are harmful enough. People’s words are harmful enough.

Why halve a toll in Kajang where hardly people use it? Why not halve the Batu Tiga & Bukit Raja Federal Highway tolls where millions of people use it?

Why do we need an AP to import a car? (According to “Thing in Common” by Syed Akbar Ali, “AP is a Useless Piece of paper which do not add any value to the car or to the people”)

Why is our car import duty so high? Mind you Malaysian pay the most for their cars compared to all other nations in the world due to tax, albeit we have relatively cheap petrol. Car owners should know that almost an additional 38% in tax are paid compared those at duty free in Pulau Langkawi. I mean we all need taxes but 38% is just too high. That means a RM 60,000 car in Langkawi cost RM 85,000 in the peninsula (Vios). Extra RM 25,000 paid. RM 25,000! I can go to London twice if I book early, watch the Olympics & travel on budget with that money.

Why do we always give face to Singapore? Our sand in Johor is slowly selling bits by bits, whether legally or illegally, so that Singapore can reclaim from the sea. So theoretically Singapore is “part” Malaysian. Johor sells water at a cheaper rate to Singapore, than to Melaka, how ironic right. Why give our airspace in Johor for their airforce to practice while Singapore can’t foot half the supposedly now cancelled “crooked” bridge? That is pure taking advantage. (Doctor in the house, Tun Dr. Mahathir, MPH Publishers) Because we lag behind them in world economy that’s why.

Doesn’t matter if you support whoever, but make your voice heard if you are dissatisfied with all these issues. Get a government leader brave enough to challenge nations that bully us or take advantage of us. Friendship goes two ways.

So do the right thing, register to vote!

Charlie. For 16 & half years he was with me.haha. I still remember getting him from my uncle’s friend when i was merely 7 years old.

We played all through primary school, secondary school, university. He even waited for me until i came back from Japan. I’m so glad i personally saw him go, with me around him.

Remembering when he was a puppy, he used to steal my shoes & hid with it under the car. Then i would crawl under to retrieve it while he comes licking my face.haha. I used to remember sharing half my Fillet O’Fish always when i buy them. Peel longan to eat together. Play catch. Play fetch. Take walks. Sing!

Do you know Charlie can sing too? For those of you who have known Charlie, what an amazing feat right. He howls while i play the piano. Just two days ago i was playing the guitar with him sitting around me.haha.

They say a dog is a man’s best friend. How true the saying is.

11th of July, yesterday evening, was the day i had to make a decision, to put him to sleep. Dinner was served. I found him not moving but only a little from the head and a lot of eye contact. He was trying to tell me something. I called him to come out from his cage but his couldn’t move. Then i saw his eyes twitching. Heavy breathing.

I knew in my heart at that moment that this would be the last time i see my old friend at home. I called his doctor & lucky they agreed to wait for me to come as it was nearly 8pm. Blood test were run, steroids injected, and meds to reduce his heart contraction were given. Condition was still very bad.

I held him for almost an hour, and decided, it would be better to send him to sleep. Deep down I known Charlie was telling me, don’t worry i’ll still be with you in your dreams. Tears of joy was all i had when i held him and the doctor slowly infused the powerful sedative. We looked at each other till he closed his eyes. He went peacefully with me around him, and I’m happy he has finally moved on.

I wanna thank the lord for giving me such a good friend throughout my childhood. No words could describe how he was meant to me. He had served this family well. Loyal and forever guarding the house, and always taking care of his younger brother, Tommy. (my Labrador). Tommy misses his brother already and has been finding him all over the house. He knows it already i guess.

Charlie will be forever remembered. Thank you boy.

White wine or rather, Vin Blanc in French, is one of my favourite beverage. I just finished two glasses of the Chardonnay variety and thus lead to me writing.

I am not a meat loving person but rather i like foods from the sea. And white wine goes well down the back of your throat with the aroma it brings with it after seafood. I’ve never been a fan of red wine. Maybe because it’s too thick or red or common or the texture.

The aroma is probably what brings me to love white wine. Strong smell of citrus yet pleasant. Of the six/seven varieties, I personally like Sauvignon Blanc white wines, gives the “dry” taste after sipping. Although Chardonnay are the common ones sold.

One more good point about wines compared to spirits (i.e. brandy, another personal favourite) is that you can still maintain composure and know what you are doing after drinking.

White wine goes well with the ladies as well.

**holding a glass of white wine now

(Raise glass) Thus i wanna conclude that White Wine is the drink that cures my insomnia tonight. =)

Main agenda for a citizen: Jobs, Equality, No Corruption, Freedom of Press & Rule of Law.

When all these are intact, the people will generally be grateful and vote the correct party/candidate for their respective locations. Any party as long as they can perform, they have the mandate.

Now, we see that Najib is struggling to win back the people’s confidence for the BN government. I am politically neutral. I look at my constituency candidates quality there and then, not famous profiles. I mean, our PM is doing all this for the benefit of our country. Lets face the fact, being a PM is no easy task. And why would he wanna harm his own country? He can just retire off and spend his fortunes. He could even have avoided politics in the first place and live life to the full, being the son of a former PM.

Well, back to my main point, Politics from a Citizen point of view. As a citizen, I think that the PM is a great guy but with a wrong group of lousy generals. It is like continuing chess game from another player (Badawi) who had left it for you abruptly and left you with a bad hand.

Before Malaysia reaches to the stage like Thailand, where Red Shirts/Yellow Shirts/Pheu Thai/ Democrats and all that colour politics, we have to think how the citizens think. Not how politicians think. Majority citizens don’t care which political party you are. We care for job availability. Buying safe goods. Equality. NO corruption. Safety. Good economy. Education. Health access.

If you can’t provide these but other countries with similar economic status can, wave bye bye to your votes. I mean, what’s the harm in changing government? If you under perform, let other people have a chance.

Why stop Bersih rally? It’s for free elections! It’s not seditious? It’s not religious? It’s not even about overthrowing the government. See, when you catch people who are exercising their rights the RAKYAT is watching.

The RAKYAT hold the biggest power in putting the fire out in you guys. You can do all you want now, but wait till elections, you guys shall bite the dust.

You had your heyday. But that has been long gone.We want fresh faces. New ideas. Old guys to move their arses out. OMG just look at our pathetic minister line up. It’s like a musical chair game. Recycle here, recycle there.

Just look at the pathetic Gerakan Party. Their president smiling away and would even go to other party’s AGM but not attend their own problems, lucky that didn’t happen. Their party lost EVERYTHING in Penang. Still their president went through the back door to get a minister position but not to strengthen his party grassroots.

Lucky MIC is gaining a little momentum. Lucky Mr. Samy Vellu left. OMG, people hated him so much, yet he smiles in front of the camera and says the “people love me”.

Lets not even start with MCA. Tainted president, members in-fighting, name calling, fractions, grasshoppers, scandals, uneducated leaders.

PPP? OMG. That Kayveas is still there. When i was in primary school he was there. When i was in secondary school he was there. When i’m in university he’s still there.

Our ministers are really odd. Their occupation don’t fit to their portfolios.

Just look at our tourism minister, a doctor in tourism? OMG, she seems to fly more than the DPM. I see her face more than i see the DPM’s face in the newspaper.

Sigh, politics is like a diaper. The more you change the better. The longer you keep it, the dirtier it gets.

Anyway, i’m tired of ranting already. Just my 2 cents opinion.

Just came back from Pangkor and before that Taman Negara.

I wanna talk about how to get to the moon. Literally.

This is because I had made a deal.

Now, the options i have:

1. $100 Million, per person, under Space Adventures as a space tourist based in Arlington USA.

2. Join NASA, Russian Version of NASA, or China Version of NASA.

3. Be good friends with Richard Brandson.

4. Befriend a rocket scientist and make him build a space shuttle for me.

5. Go to the beach, look at the moon and BRING SOME WINE.

No.5 sure looks like a great option.

Wuuuuu… it’s a one way ticket to the blues~~~~~~~~

Don’t you hate it when you treat friends like royalty but get treated like a peasant instead?

Don’t you hate it when friends got no time for you but you must have time for friends?

Don’t you hate it when friends open their arms only when they get something?

Don’t you hate it when the only time friends have time for you is the time when they are in a bad mood?

Don’t you hate it when you know you cannot fuck that friend up?

Should stop wasting my time.

I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises.
