Journey - Don't Stop Believin'
That's Steve Perry in tight jeans. This reminds of her except in my case, it was a small town boy livin' in his lonely dream, took a midnite plane going anywhere. And she was a city girl from Melbourne. We fell in love. We married. We fought. We went on our separate ways. And now I miss her. Why am I feelin' so sentimental all of a sudden. Gotta find me a woman to marry, preferably this weekend.

Go Ahead Lie To Yourself.
It Doesn't Take Much To Make A Malay To See Blood.
He won. But I'm not too sure about what UMNO is gonna do to re-arrange the allocation of Indian seats in the next general election. Afterall UMNO has gotta listen to the Malays who will have read the letter this Uthaya wrote and the Malays are gonna stand behind UMNO like never before. And this is before the full gerak gempur machinery is set in motion to every kampong and daerah through Kemas' in its program prihatin rakyat, gotong royong, program anak angkat, ceramah, kenduri kendara, majlis penyerahan hak tanah, pemberian biasiswa, pembinaan masjid, jembatan dan sebagainya demi kesejahteraan rakyat. I reckon UMNO doesn't have to use kain batik, kain pelikat and basikal this time. No need to. All they need is this letter. It's enough to stoke the fire inside a Malay to see blood.
Thank you, Mr P.Uthayakumar. Most probably the letter is already being distributed to all the masjid and surau and the content might even be dealt with at length in a Friday khutbah.

RE: 1. COMMONWEALTH ETHNIC INDIAN PEACE LOVING SUBJECTS IN MALAYSIA PERSECUTED BY GOVERNMENT BACKED ISLAMIC EXTREMIST VIOLENT ARMED TERRORIST WHO LAUNCHED A PRE DAWN VIOLENT ARMED ATTACK AND DESTROYED THE KG JAWA MARIAMAN HINDU TEMPLE AT 4.00 A.M THIS MORNING (15.11.2007).
2. APPEAL FOR U.K TO MOVE EMERGENCY U.N RESOLUTION CONDEMNING “ETHNIC CLEANSING” IN MALAYSIA.
3. APPEAL TO REFER MALAYSIA TO THE WORLD COURT AND INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT FOR CRIMES AGAINST IT’S OWN ETHNIC MINORITY INDIANS.
We refer to the above critical matters in Malaysia but which generally gets the least attention locally even by the Opposition parties, NGO’s, the Malaysian Human Rights Commission and the media for this community is generally regarded as politically insignificant, do not draw local or international funding and are deemed not pressworthy. To the contrary the Malaysian government has successfully projected itself to the world as a modern Islamic thinking country which is not true.
The ethnic minority Indians in Malaysia were brought in to Malaysia by the British some 200 over years ago. Since independence in 1957 the Malaysian Indians have been permanently colonialised by the Islamic fundamentalist and Malay chauvinists UMNO led Malaysian government.
Among the recent atrocities committed by this government are as follows:-
1.100 over Indians were slashed and killed by the UMNO controlled Malaysian government in the Kampung Medan mini genocide. Despite numerous appeals, the Malaysian Human Rights Commission has refused to hold a Public Inquiry. The UMNO controlled Malaysian courts struck off a victim’s public interest civil suit for a Public Inquiry to be held without even the said UMNO controlled government having to file in their defence. The UMNO controlled Attorney General and the Inspector General of Police refused to investigate and / or initiate an inquest into the death of at least six Indians in this tragedy despite.
2. Every week one person at average is killed in a shot to kill policy and in every 2 weeks one person is killed in police custody. About 60% of these victims are Indians though they form only 8% of the Malaysian population.
3. In every three weeks one Hindu temple is demolished in Malaysia.
The latest being the demolishment of the Mariaman temple in Padang Jawa, Shah Alam, Selangor early this morning (15.11.2007) and the next being the (Mutaiya) Hindu temple in Sungai Petani scheduled for the 29.11.2007.
A violent armed pre down attack at 4.00a.m this morning was launched by the UMNO controlled Malaysian government backed by about 600 police, riot police, Islamic extremist and armed terrorists which completely destroyed this temple.
In an attack two weeks ago, uniformed police, riot police and city Council officers hurled rocks and attacked unarmed Hindu devotees with knives, sticks and iron rods.
At least 20 Hindu devotees were seriously injured and 19 arrested including 4 of their United Kingdom trained lawyers in direct violation of Article 5 (Right to life) Article 8 (Equality) Article 11 (Freedom of Religion) Section 295 (defiling a place of worship), Section 296 (disturbing a religious assembly), 298A(causing racial disharmony) and Section 441(criminal trespass) of the Malaysian Penal Code.
These authorities are plagued by an above the law mindset and in fact liberally take the law into their own hands. These atrocities however does not happen to almost all Islamic places of worship. Please visit http://www.policewatchmalaysia.com/ for further and better particulars.
4. State sponsored direct discrimination against the Indians in Public University intakes, Indian (Tamil) Schools, skills training institutes, civil service and private sector job opportunities, business and license opportunities and in almost all other aspects of daily life.
Despite our hundreds of letters, appeals and pleas to the Malaysian King and Sultans, the Prime Minister, Attorney General, Inspector General of Police, Ministers, Chief Ministers and the latest being our letters to the Prime Minister dated 29.10.2007 and 30.10.2007 and to the Attorney General dated 1.11.2007 the Malaysian authorities are only proceeding with greater ferocity and with impunity with very little regard for the Federal Constitution and laws of Malaysia. So please help us.
We fear that this peace loving Indian community of Tamil origin having been pushed to the corner and the persecution getting worse by the day may be forced to into terrorism in a matter of time as what has happened to the Sri Lankan Tamils.
On our part we are committed to a peaceful and lawful struggle and pray and appeal that the Government of the United Kingdom:-
1. Moves an emergency United Nations resolution condemning these state sponsored atrocities and persecutions of Malaysian Indians in Malaysia.
2. Refers Malaysia to the World Court and the International Criminal Court for Crimes against it’s own ethnic minority Indians

People I meet.
I'd like to have you believe that I'm joking but I am not actually. Especially about the million dollar contract part even though I know this is the least likely thing to ever happen to my uneventful life I am currently leading as a student of a university set amidst the verdant and undulating hills of Gombak.
I meet a lot of interesting people now that I can't help but to look at myself in the mirror in the morning to see if I will ever be someone I'm trying to be, or will I end up looking at the man in the mirror thinking, do I have the brain for all this?

procol harum whiter shade of pale
His has gotta be the only name like that: Procol Harum. I'm still trying to figure out what is the song's all about. Is it about Vietnam war? I just like the solo on the Hammond keyboard. Sarah Brightman and Annie Lennox sing this too but it's not the same as the original

Think Western Act Local.
But if you happen to be doing your thinking in Bahasa Melayu, you will no doubt come to the conclusion that Dato Khir guy has no respect for you that he doesn't have to think twice how you'd feel as a Malay to receive a broom as a present in an official ceremony with press photographers going snap! snap! snap! to take your picture and run it in the national newspapers.
Maybe the Malays like Dato Khir guy have come of age to finally leave behind the suffocating Malay adat resam, the baggage some will have you believe that has locked the Malays in their tempurung the last couple of centuries. Maybe Dato Khir guy is the embodiment of Melayu Glokal. The new breed of Malays who don't take offence to the silly nuances of the adat resam that have prevented the Malays from moving forward to catch up with the rest of the advanced races in the world.
It could also be a game with a sinister meaning that Dato Khir guy is playing now that the open season of politicking has started to pick up. Ordinary folks are going to remember the broom like they have never remembered it before. The broom is going to be Selangor's main political visual that will get the folks all excited to say; oh what a good Menteri Besar Dato Khir guy is, he has cleaned up all the corruption practices in the state that it would be a sin if we don't vote for the party he is representing.
Of course no one is questioning who's paying for the overseas trips as the incentive for those who have carried out their duty in collecting money from the people in the form of quit rents and stuff like that. Chances are they're going to watch belly dancing cruising down the Nile in a boat.
Wasn't it the broom that started the 13 May when the non-Malays went around the city in the open truck brandishing the brooms to send the clear message to the Malays that they were about to be swept back to the kampong where they had came from? If this is indeed the game Dato Khir guy is playing, so that the Malays can be reminded in a subtle way of the consequences of giving your vote to the other side then I believe he is the most cunning Malay politician in Selangor.
It's the open season for politicking. It's the time to read between the lines. Of course, I could be guilty of over-reacting to an innocent broom.

Najib says BN can bring triple the size of the Saturday crowd. So he and his gang aren't all that excited about 40,000 people running up and down Jalan Pudu being chased by the cops in riot gear and water canon the size of a giant penis.
After the marching is done, people in high places are saying things that you and I should read between the line. This is the time people make a mistake of talking too much, just like the Zam guy but he's different. He doesn't speak English.
So far only the top guys are saying things. The guys in the lower rung ain't saying anything yet. They'll say something soon but so far they're playing which-way-the-wind-is-blowing. The president of the Backbenchers' club has said something but you can't take that Raja guy seriously. He is in the same category with the Kinabatangan and Gading clowns. They are the first class act, Laurel and Hardy. Just like Laurel and Hardy they never fail to keep me amused with their bucolic humor
The non-Malay ministers aren't saying anything yet. Maybe they've worked out a schedule among themselves who should say what and when so that this march by 40,000 strong rakyat in yellow can be exploited until the very eve of the General Election, a grim reminder to the kampong folks what a terrible traffic jam the march has caused and what a shame it has been for the country now that the whole world has put us in the same class as Myanmar and Pakistan. Ish ish ish ini bukan budaya kita, tuan puan sekalian, adik kakak, saudara-saudari sekelian. Ini budaya asing. Kita yang lemah lembut dengan adat ketimuran perlulah bertindak mengikut perlembagaan. Kita ada proses pengundian yang adil dan saksama. Ini telah diiktiraf oleh badan-badan pengundian dunia.
Simon is going to say a lot of things and the people are going to do exactly what Simon says. This is Simon country and Simon can do anything he wants and the people are going to watch in silence. Simon is gonna say, let's have a rally. Simon is gonna pay good money for you to go. Simon is gonna put you on an air-conditioned bus to get you there. Simon gonna feed you nice quality food to eat. Better food than what Zakaria Md Deros served at his open house where 60,000 people turned up to eat, drink and be merry. After that the people had a chance to tour his nice house which is bigger than MPSJ building. This is Simon's country. Simon has lots of money. Simon says, sit! You sit. Simon knows better; no money no talk. Got money let's walk.

This Ain't My Show.
One and a half hour into the class his cellphone goes off again. That got me to look him in the eye to say, I think you'd better switch that off, man. He didn't like what he had just heard. And so he gave me the look. I got the look only mother could love and since I don't know who my mother is I gave him the look too. But he never looked my way after that which is not too good because I suddenly got the urge to have a fight with someone like him.

As it is, I am an oxymoron in the making. If I decide to go into politics, that is. For now I am an oxy on account of my involvement in the world of business. I've chosen the first part of the word to fit my description because it sounds better than -moron. And if you bear with me, it means better too.
It's an open secret that politicians are generally morons. There's a whole bunch of them in the city right now having the supreme time of their life in a council that meets every now and then to discuss the fate of the Malays, where the Malays should be going, now that a Malay has gone to space and back. Every one knows that these spineless morons are as clueless as a goat with amnesia as to where everybody should be going. After all, they have misled the Malays for a good five decades and seven already.
Oxy is different than moron. An oxy doesn't necessarily refer to men or women engaged in some kind of business although this is generally the case. It may refer to a full-bodied ox, full of flesh and looking ohhh so oxy, or sexy in bovine street talk. It's a hundred times better than -moron, I tell you that. Unless otherwise stated oxy, however, isn't the same as oxlike.
How's that so, you may ask. I'm in the middle of cooking something so I am not about to explain this whole thing to you in a fashion that would make me come across as an academic who has read way too much for his own good. Besides, this is no time to be academic. Not when I'm listening to Boney M, ABBA and Tina Charles back to back. Of course it's different if I'm listening to people like Jethro Tull, Bob Dylan or Pink Floyd. But I don't. I like simple music with no message or concept. Music that doesn't try to change the world just because there's way too many wars, or corruption or that the world has had enough of oxymorons shouting themselves coarse in the throat that the Malays must change their ways if they ever want to get anywhere. Wherever that is.
Now, what was it that I started to write about? Sorry, my fish is cooking nicely in the aluminum wrapper, and I should start on the citrus sauce. And you know that a sauce like that needs constant stirring. Excuse me, I gotta fix dinner for one. Wish you could join me but would you have dinner with an oxy? If you don't mind Boney M, that is.
