At my aunt's place in Singapore.
Rode over here last night for the weekend.
Woke up for Subuh just now.
It's exactly 6.44am as I start writing this now.
Well, they suspended TS Muhyiddin Yassin last night.
Was not really surprised.
I expected that from the start of the Umno civil war.
They should just cut the bullshit and sack the guy.
No need to suspend.
For me it's just part of things turning full circle for Malaysia.
The country is reverting back to its old self.
It's the end of an era.
We actually took a departure from our true path on Feb 12 1996.
The lunching of Multimedia Super Corridor by then PM DS Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
That's 20 years ago.

Don't worry. It's just a link to Wikipedia and not some wierd website.
Well, we were the envy of the world at that time.
Even the Singaporeans were envious of us.
The price we have to pay : We have to give ourselves the freedom of speech and expression in cyberspace.
Well, as you all may noticed, it's ending now.
You can't simply write what you want anymore.
If you do, you will be shut down...or blocked.
PM DS Najib Razak explained why.

Netizens for the greater good
Some of you all may be angry over the whole thing but Najib does have a point there.
Some of us have really been abusing the freedom.
I have seen certain people instigating racial and religious hatred like nobody's business.
These people are making it their life mission to tell the Malays to hate Chinese and vice versa.
They even want the Muslims and Christians to hate each others too.
All because of their personal hatred and vendetta.
Definitely not for the greater interest of Malaysia.
The Malaysian cyberspace has become really toxic because of these people.
They needed to be stopped.
I believe that we should counter these hate mongers by arguing better than them in a free cyberspace.
Apparently, the authorities think otherwise.
They are taking the much easier route.
They have decided to just shut down everyone who were deemed to be abusing the freedom in cyberspace.
As you all already know, a few have been shut off for various offenses.
I don't agree with the method, but who am I to protest.
Since they are already at it, I hope that they will soon go after the racial and religious hate mongers.
They are the most dangerous among the lot.
I hope the authorities will not be selective in implementing this policy of shutting down the bad people from cyberspace.
I hope it applies to everyone across the political divide.
Anyway, this is like before we have the internet.
You talk too much, you kena.
Maybe they will go after Dr Mahathir after this.
After all it's the handsome old man who started all these silly freedom thing with his MSC project and Vision 2020.
Actually, I don't mind so much that Malaysians now have less freedom.
We will be more like Singaporeans that way.
Hey, that's what the DAP people want all along, right?
Here in Singapore, they don't have Singapore Insider or Singaporekini, okay.
They also don't have blogs inciting racial and religious hatred.
You make a bit too much noise, you go in, okay.
I think they can even charge you in court for being smelly.
Anything that's disturbing to others is wrong in Singapore.
Being like Singapore is really not bad at all.
The whole place is clean, people are disciplined, the facilities and attitude are genuinely of first world stature, and there's almost zero corruption.
And on top of that, the PM is handsome.
Even more handsome than KJ, okay.
