tears and the morgue

so the lightning is here again. travelling light. trembling wet bodies below a tree. a fist reaching down from heaven, bright and phosphorescent. punching your lights out. bruised pigeon chest and dead eyes. chemical reactions in the blood stream. blood boiling, brain scrambled. pure unadulterated violence of the non man-made type.

Teen dies after being struck by lightning


Chua Soi Lek – Prima Donna

More quotes from our dearly departed Health Minister.

Dr Chua said he was working out a plan on how to thank all party members.

“I should be travelling the whole country to thank them because they unexpectedly got caught in this resignation.

“However, they must understand that if I travel now, I have to use all my expenses. I do not even know how to book a ticket. I do not even know how to book a hotel (room).

That’s not what I heard.

Reminds me of pop stars who have every aspect of their lives planned and executed by hired ass-lickers. Welcome to the real world of failures, disappointments and bottom scrapers, Sir.

Chua Soi Lek’s favourite drink


An excerpt from the ex-Health Minster’s resignation speech :

Well, after I made the confession, I hoped Malaysians would be able to accept my apology. But unfortunately, based on the feedback that I have received, I observed that Malaysians were unable to do that. Some Malaysians can be said to be “holier than thou”. This means they are all ulama (religious teachers). So, I think if I continue to hold positions in the party or Government, this will be a burden to the Government and party, especially in the context of Islam Hadhari. And also in the context of what has been recommended by my president, which is healthy political culture.

Quick get me my Koran!

We are sorry, Chua Soi Lek

However misguided, the man has balls. 24 hours ago the Health Minster of Malaysia made a public admission that he was indeed the male protagonist of a filmed sex romp involving a woman who was not his wife. Today he tendered his resignation in front of the media.

“Oh Fearless Leader, what could have prompted you to make such a foolhardy decision?”

Apparently we are at fault. Firstly for being the people who elected him to serve us and secondly for our “Holier-Than-Thou” attitude. Okay, its all my fault. It was I who pushed you to commit adultery. Oh, Great Leader please accept my sincerest apologies.

MyKad – of privacy and civil liberties

We Malaysians literally live by our IC’s or to give it its full moniker, “Identity Card”. Go to the hospital with your guts spilling out and they want to see your IC. Open a bank account and the IC is a must. Try registering a cell phone without an IC and it will all end in tears. How did a piece of plastic come to dominate every inch of lives?

With the defeat of the Howard government in Australia, the proposed Access Card was scraped to universal applause. Perhaps we should start questioning the validity of our own identification tag.
