But why aren’t you interested in politics?!?!?!?

Once upon a time, politics is not as interesting as now because we normally hear from the same old boring mainstream media. But now, it is one hell of an interesting drama. So, let me influence those who doesn’t like politics to learn to see it in a new light.

Waitaminit, is politics plural or singular, Cikgu STP? I learnt from Martin Jalleh that feedback is always in singular.

Ok back to politics. Do you know how much scandal, dirt, gossips, rumours, humor, suspense, cunning strategies are in this thing call politics? The best thing is we are free to indulge in it and innocently claim that we are merely keeping up with times, being knowledgeable and patriotic and concern about our country.

Just like today’s prime time news….

The sex part
Chua Soi Lek of course has been dropped from the Labia Labis seat after his sex tape with A.Yam was exposed. But our man is very stoid and very heroic. I salute him. But that’s not the end of Chua Soi Lek. His son is contesting! OMG, his son looks just like him. That facial feature, senduk a bit type? So, now who said they pity Chua?

The tear jerker

And if you missed the news, Chan Kong Choy shed tears when the announcement was made that he too was dropped. I think he is shedding tears of relief for the RM4.6 billion that went *poof*.

The botox aka tempe anti-ageing
Now, you must have heard about the botox case. No, I mean the tempe case. Our very handsome Khir Toyo indeed has a much firmer and tout skin. Do you know that Simon Cowell of American Idol also went for Botox? Yeah, but Khir Toyo said he merely makan tempe siang dan malam. Petua awet muda. Seriously, I find Khir Toyo very handsome. So, I hope he is around in politics to keep reminding me that makan tempe boleh jadi muda overnight.

The Bollywood drama of Samy Vellu
Of course, my favourite Samy is still around this election. Let’s hope we can wish him Happy Birthday and Happy Pordah on March 8.

As for the suspense part, last night I read Malaysia-Today and almost fell off chair. RPK said that we must compare this election with the 1999 one. You gotta read the donkey part. I love RPK’s article for his humour.

I don’t easily get influenced by all those things I read. After all, I only need to make one vote. How difficult it is lah? There are only two parties. RISK or CONTINUE DYING. I am the risk taker.

This year, PAS, DAP, PKR (and some other parties) have a seat in ALL the states. It will be interesting to catch the results. Our Mis-information brushed off that bloggers and the online media will not make a difference. But you have to read what RPK explained about the reach of the internet.

And my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, remember that we are called to cast our votes because it is our Christian obligation. We are asked to pray for guidance and wisdom in making the choice. (Letter from the Bishop to the Catholics)

Voting, however, is the sacred Christian duty of all Catholics and the exercise of this duty is independent of what the final outcome may be. God wills that the leaders of a country rule with justice and compassion, always placing the interest of the people first. In casting your vote, you are answering to God’s call to establish a Government that is just and equitable to all Malaysians regardless of race, colour and creed.

Oh ya, talking about religion, do you know that PAS has fielded a non-Muslim candidate in Johor? Of course, none of the political parties is perfect but…..hey, let’s have an interest in politics as it involves us!

  1. the power of internet has really changed a lot of things.

    by the way, you didnt mention the zakaria legacy…where the daughter in law will continue the… whatever…

  2. Hi,

    I have read your article and I don’t have any prejudice or condemn on you. I sincerely would like to know you more and kindly email to me about your opinion on PAS, of course only if you feel convenience and willing to share with me. Thanks.

  3. In situation like this, you know what type of reader you have, kan. Just heard over the radio news that i’m not allowed to apply nail polish when casting my vote. uh!!! troublesome, my nails are beautifully manicured & polished ler… can i just remove the polish of only my thumbs nail?

    No one is perfect, we just pray for the best for our country & be a good citizen jangan jadi macam pepatah, ” disebabkan nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga “.


  4. You know what’s one thing those in Jelutong should know right now? If they vote Jeff into Parliament, he will be able to present all those facts showing malpractices by the government (as he has always done on the net) without fear of prosecution. Parliamentary immunity as an MP. No more fear of having to defend defamation suits. Shame RPK not standing for elections as well.

    And if Anwar also gets in eventually, his former background knowledge (of the workings of BN) can be used to tickle the BN MPs.

    alamak!! voting is sacred? I have to fly for almost 2 1/2 hours to vote oh! How ah?

    Yea. I was really annoyed by these situations too. kaDusMama, where do u stay mostly? if it’s away from ur hometown, u decided to stay permanently on ur current places, u can go the election office to change the address.

    Our current election system no good n outdated. Election commission should revise it. Hope they set up a special station for those who are in outstaion(but still within malaysia)to vote. Also, wish they could computerize the polling system n put it online?

    P/s: I’m flying back to Sarawak on 7th Mar to vote. (2hours flight)

  6. kaDusMama…. Wow, another 3 hours driving. If i was in ur shoes, i won’t bother going back to vote. LOL..
