I woke up this morning at 8 am (which is like 5am your time 😛 ), all groggy and made my way to the kitchen to get a bottle of milk for the kid. The day’s paper is usually placed on the dining table and usually, I will scanned through the headlines. I thought someone was stung by bees or bitten by snake with the title “Doses of Venom”. Then, I head back to sleep.
I had to make a second trip because my toddler found that I did not make exactly 4 oz of milk but only 3 oz. Ish, picky, fussy, finicky kid. He demanded me to make “NEW ONE”. So, got my butt out to the kitchen again to add some hot water to touch the mark of 4. But I cannot go back immediately because he will know that I did not ‘make new one’. To trick him, I lingered to read the full news. I am thoroughly shocked with the actual news.
Caption : Hi! My name is Venom. I used to run a country for 22 years. Now, I moonlight as Venom and my arch enemy is….NO! not Spiderman. Guess again?
Is our PM being spiteful? (read from 4896 a statement from Dr. M on Malaysia-Today)Or is it The Star Publications making these up to sell more papers? I know a couple of guys (gals) in The Star and they are some of the nicest people I know. The Editor, Mr. Koh (I don’t know who is the main Ed now) had once helped me in some issues. Why did The Star come up with juvenile headlines like these? Why did they go to the level of the vernacular papers? Mr. Editor of The Star, remember that many of your readers have the intelligence to make up our mind to an issue without needing the newspapers to lead us on. If I need titles like these, I can just go to the wet markets and talk with the bunch of housewives. Doh!
Now, the lembik attitude of the Ministry of Health. Datuk Seri Dr. Chua, you have been pwned by a couple of pigs. I am thoroughly disgusted with the way the various ministries are handling the matters. Pig rearers and butchers are making a fool of the Government. Your lackadaisical, tidak apa attitude are putting risks on our health. How difficult is it to nail a couple of irresponsible, money-eyed pigs’ rearers? Datuk Seri Dr. Chua, how can you say on national papers that ‘Ini daging babi gua mya section, itu babi hidup Ministry of Agriculture mya pasal, itu kandang babi Ministry of Local Housing. Gua tarak boleh buat apa.” (It sounds to me like : lu orang cina makan babi penuh beta-agonist kena cancer, pi mati, gua tarak peduli. Oklah, I made this up.) The point is – Whatever ministry, you are all part of the Government and Government is suppose to take care of its voters’ health. Not subject us to cancer just because all of you are not well co-ordinated, dude.
Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said monitoring the use of beta-agonist was complex and involved many levels in the food chain.
â€œAt our level, we monitor beta-agonist in pork while the Agriculture Ministry monitors the substance in pigs in the farms, before they are slaughtered,â€
Dr Chua said there was also difficulty monitoring the use of beta-agonist in pigs due to religious obstacles. (link)
And to those pig rearers who feed the pigs beta-agonist, a cancer causing agent, to make the pigs grow 20 days faster and less fatty, I hope you remember to put a bowl of blood and a sharp cleaver under your bed when you are about to breathe your last. (It is believed that pig rearers and those who slaughter pigs have heavy debts to pay for the killings and usually, they are believed to suffer before dying, hence the bowl of blood and cleaver is to hasten and make it less painful. Now, it is not my curse but this is what most people told me.)
Haiyor! Correct or not?
