Bits of news I read in The Star
Posted on June 26th, 2008 by Lilian • Filed under: Life and rants
There is a tiny, very tiny column in The Star that
Gerakan Lim Boo Chang MCA and 350 other Gerakan MCA members have joined PKR. But I can’t find the online version. Imagine, one PKR member join UMNO, we get headlines for several day. One MCA member joins PKR with 350 others, we get a tiny column. Bias lah lu, Star! Eheh, as if we do not yet.
Then, I read about Eric Chia’s demise and even though he is a tycoon, he opted for a simple Christian funeral. See? So much money, so much fame, in the end, he found his peace in living a simple life. I wonder if he was less richer, would he have a happier life instead of having to spend his last few years
in prison being vindicated for CBT? Never mind, RIP anyway….
The headline shows the irresponsible man who is a coward, gambler, loser and everything. He has four small children, gambled over the Euro cup betting and he conveniently drank weedkiller and die. Leaving his huge debt of RM90K for his poor parents to clear and his poor wife and four children. His father wanted to publicize his son’s suicide to give the rest of the gamblers a harsh reminder. But I guess when people are blinded to money, these sort of news won’t bother them.
Nowadays, it is a waste of time writing about political news. Every time, it is one party showing their might. Like the ‘was she there or was she not?’ news. One lone RPK how to lawan the whole system? It is very frustrating to care, so I have stop bothering.
A good name is better than fine perfume
and the day of death better than the day of birth
It is better to go to a house of mourning;
than to go to a house of feasting
for death is the destiny of every man;
the living should take this to heart. (Ecc 7:1-2)
Yesterday night, I watched the news and our Deputy PM was so proud to announce that all the 300,000 illegal immigrants in Sabah will be deported. That bothers me too. Why? Because in the first place, why did they let these immigrants come in? Why allow them to settle and rooted here? Why have to wait until the BN about to lose the Sabah state, then only want to do something? These may be a figure, meaningless numbers to those politicians who are using it to gain their popularity. But these are humans with lives, children, aspirations, hope, dreams and more. Now, they are treated like a piece of shit. See the kind of words used by The Star and our Government?

‘Massive op’ to flush out Sabah’s illegal immigrants
The Government will launch a “massive operation’ against illegal immigrants in Sabah soon, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Wednesday.
He said all foreign nationals without identification documents issued by their own countries or by Malaysia’s Immigration Department would be deported.
