I Can't Create!!

Zombie fingers

My fingers seem to be strangely detached from my brain. Interesting thoughts form in my mind, but by the time these thoughts get shuffled between the synapses in my brain, transmitted down rows and rows of neurons, travel down the length of my arm in the form of electrical pulses, which are then translated into a series of muscle twitches which result in the tappity-tap of the keyboard and words being formed on this very screen.....the result is a bunch of mediocre, uninspired sentences so far removed from my original idea that I am ashamed to call them my own.

I loathe these insipid moments where every thought and activity degenerates into a pile of mundane-ness. Not for the lack of thoughts and activities though....it's just....

....I just....

... argghhh, blame it on those fingers, sigh.

Haha! Hope you will recover from that soon enough.

JOke of the day to brighten up your dull day:

"The Last Communist may be screened locally if the Umno supreme council decides to give the green light, Home Minister Datuk Seri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad said."

Hahah! While they are at that, might as well disolve the censorship board, and take over screening all the movies and foreign TV shows. Duh!

Malaysia has the misfortune of being ruled by Muslims, hence their intolerant attitude to you non-malays.

It was the Chinese and Indian minorities that have begun to lift Malaysia out of third world poverty, and those malay bastards should be grateful to them for this but like I said before, that is too much to ask from a Muslim.

Malaysia is a xenophobic country - the bitter truth is that malays are afraid of competition from other races - they are indeed lazy and want everything for free.

If Malaysia is to divide into two countries with malays taking the east and the west to the Indians and the Chinese - watch the malays starting to migrate to the west illegally for a better future.

It is no wonder Singapore is a country which is 30 years ahead of Malaysia. Malays are fool racists indeed.

It seems that the NEP is just an excuse for the share recipients to buy their equities at discounted prices in order to realize fast money by selling them to others.

How else could one explain how 'untuk-bumi-sahaja' scripts land in the hands of other less fortunate buyers who have had to pay market rates?

That being the norm, would anyone be surprised if the targets of the NEP continue to be a shifting goalpost, so as to give ammo to Umno to fire another salvo against the other communities, bringing the country down the deep end? Is their higher population growth rate also taken into consideration when doing the mathematics?

Are their policies to disillusion the non-malays and non-Muslims also taken into consideration so that productive and laws biding citizens don't have to conclude that the final consistently-applied agenda of Umno, the only one thing they do unfailingly - is to discourage you and you and you from staying?

Furthermore, some of the foreign investors have walked away when told they have to allocate that quantum of their shares at special discounted rates to this group? Why should they when they have so many other markets for the picking?

A lot of things go on in this country which brings us closer to sunset. And the apologists don't help one bit to make the situation any more palatable.

Shameless denial, medicine man evasion, lazy man-rent-seeking, crony corruption, creative excuses, close-one-eye enforcement, bureaucratic smoke screening, vague accounting - all the things that can be done except face up to reality and the need for hard work and sacrifice.

This country could have been one of the shining lights of Asia, if not the world. Now it remains the global hub for one thing - the uncanny ability to give frigging excuses again and again for screwing the people and Malaysia.

So what say the members of Umno, past, present, future?

It appears that in the rural areas of Sarawak, the people are so poor that they will gladly accept a few ringgit to vote for the BN, something which no opposition party or independent candidate is in the position to offer them.

Forget about all the 'support' that they give to any opposition candidate during the campaign period. This is merely to up the ante so that more money and promises are forthcoming from the BN (and if they are lucky, from the opposition candidates as well).

They think that they are being smart. They, of course fail to realise that they are only deceiving themselves.

This act of self-deception will have drastic consequences for them over the next five years but will they ever learn? It has been going on for the last 40 over years as far as Sarawak is concerned.

Ironically, especially in the malay constituencies, it is not even necessary for the BN to pay anything other than for some token food and drinks for the voters. These are the voters who will believe anything and everything that the BN, and the BN-controlled media, will tell them.

The BN has proven yet again that it can fool most Sarawakians all the time.

The situation is so bad that in some, if not most, of these areas, the saying goes that even if you put a monkey under the BN symbol, it will win. And there are many BN mnisters who are arguably worse than monkeys. The only reason they are picked is to be 'yes men' to the chief minister. Just give them their 'bananas'.

The federal-level BN is only too happy to let the chief minister, arguably the most corrupt and richest politician in the country, to get away with it as long as he delivers the goods each election. How, is never the question.

The people of Sarawak have still not woken up to the reality of just how much their timber, land and other wealth and resources have been stolen by Taib and his cronies, and their oil and gas by the federal government.

The disparity in development levels between Sarawak and the other states in Malaysia is obvious even to the casual observer. Sarawak is at least 20 years behind in most areas.

It is doubtful that the 9th Malaysia Plan avowed intentions of eradicating poverty etc, will work, since most of the allocations meant for Sarawak will be stolen by the monkeys who have just been voted in the just-concluded 2006 state elections. Or rather by the zookeeper, Taib and his cronies and family.

As long as oil and gas revenues keep pouring in, the federal government will, of course, keep quiet.

After all, the people of Sarawak are paying for it themselves. Where else in the world can you find people paying to get cheated and stolen from?

That is democracy. The people of Sarawak deserve what they get.

As a brain drainer whom has fled to Australia, here are my reasons for leaving.

(1) Better government. Australia government is way less wasteful than Malaysia government. I am rather tired of seeing my tax money going into white elephants and useless projects while our Malaysia schools are getting neglected. Oh, and my tax returns are guaranteed to be paid back in 10 days. Usually I will get my tax return in 4 to 5 working days.

(2) Better lifestyle. I cannot own a car and still be able to get around Australia. I am looking forward to do my masters degree in a proper university environment and being supported by the government through PELS scheme and tax deductions.

(3) Better traffic. Besides Sydney, traveling around cities in Australia is quite a relaxing task. You don't have to deal with some corrupt policemen or crazy drivers.

(4) Things are actually affordable here. You might have to pay 10 bucks for a plate of 'char koay teow', but the size of the plate you can share is with 3 people in Malaysia. Oh, and you get the big prawns too.

Like someone said, I go back to Malaysia for the 3Fs - family, friends and food. If I do stay in Malaysia, I do not see a future for myself or my family. My children will be discriminated at school. Education will be extremely expensive. And I will die earlier due to all the pollution in the air.

As many doctors leave Malaysia every year, there are more illegal Indonesian workers coming in and became citizens so easily. The country does not only flush away good brains but also refill with……….(sigh) - this is an insane country.

No no, this is not insane. We did great things to the world you know, like providing brains to others, and accepting rubbish from others. That is a Malaysia Boleh!

If you are rich, you have many choices but if you have better choice than what you have in Malaysia - you believe you can have in Singapore, you will go and get it.

Those parents who send their kids across the causeway have been rational as they are preparing their kids for the competitions, and they hope by Singapore education system, their kids will learn better skills than staying to learn the Malaysia education.

Government is happy, racists are happy and pretend to promote freedom of education, and the Singapore government is happier, they need not feed those kids, they can harvest them as they matured.

I would not hesitate to send my future kids to Singapore for his educations, considering the career paths, scholarship, and other opportunities that would be available to him in the future, and him being nurtured in a true globalised society albeit with 'kiasu' mentality.

From primary school to secondary school in Singapore, if the children do well in their exams, they can apply for scholarships and bursaries for junior colleges and universities.

And most of the good students will probably be offered good paying jobs in Singapore. Well, some on them even became members of parliaments and ministers in Singapore.

Even if they don't get into Singapore universities, their education there will stand them in better stead to get into universities in the Australia, UK and US.

I think the Singapore education system is very good but at the same time stressful. It is also too exam orientated and breed muggers. The danger with the Singapore education system is that it is an extremely good system only if you are good and would like to study even in most of your free time.

Take a survey around Ipoh, KL, Penang………. in these major cities/towns, the number of tuition centres will frighten you!

In fact the students claimed they learn more in the tuition centres than in schools! The tuition class can have 50 students to a class and they still learn better than in the schools!

Felt sad for those parents who have to send their precious kids to Singapore, and then we cannot make them feel safe to let us educate them!

Those famous, high and rich government ranking officials, they do not have confidence or rather they have better choices than to send their own kids to national schools, they do believe the international/private schools provide better education environments, better education policy………..and they are more confident, they will be more successful when they graduate.

If we can get hold of the name lists of these students in international/private schools, we will be shocked! This has been going on for many years!

Really sad about the investment to produce 'half past six teachers' nowadays to impart knowledge to our kids, and surely if any chance arises, we are ready to send them abroad, and feel safe to leave the kids into hands of those foreigners, and feel safer to let them educate our precious kids, what an irony!

Even education is not spared from politics of race and religion.

Schools are places where innocent children build friendship and trust with children from all races and religions in a healthy environment and protected them from the damaging political environment of race and religion. But this is not the case……….principals and teachers are too engrossed in politics.

Every aspect of Malaysia life is too political and most damaging in building a strong and united country. No wonder the country is sick!

It is very sad but very true. Most Malaysians just do the things in life without a thought. How bad is our education system? Very! I am also very sad that the people in charge of the education ministry promoting local universities, are send their children to foreign universities.

It is a sad day for this country and its people. Say what you like goons will be goons. The whole world is laughing. On the other hand something good may yet come out of this screw up.

We are going to see a real difference come the next general elections. As the old saying goes 'you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.'

The man on the street is a lot wiser today than he was yesterday. I am speaking for the man in the mirror.

Racism is always the weapon.

Umno use Chinese as enemy to unite malays, just like unite Malaysians against Singaporeans. Hopefully, the younger generation malay learn the truth and not be blind by them.

Government only pay to built mosque, have they ever pay a cents to built temple or church. Malaysians do have freedom of religion but to what extent? I think we all know how 'true' is that.

The racism will always stay because Umno is so one sided even though they say they treat all races equal.

I think all BN Chinese party is shit-head who are just a Umno lap dog. Wagging tail as Umno speak.

Pathetic country.
