Didn't even realise this blog turned five years old two days ago.
So, no yearly review this time.
Last month also, I did only 10 postings, which is the lowest ever.
Guess I'm just not so interested with what's going on around me at the moment.
Too much bullshit, actually, that it's not worth my attention.
Better to watch Korean drama.
Funny isn't it....I'm saying that with GE14 just around the corner.
But really, all the political nonsense have been repeated over and over the past two three years.
What else new to write every day?
Seriously, if you all read the newspapers, do tell me what's so exciting about their political coverage these days.
Most of the stories were planted by the editors' political masters, anyway.
Who wants to read those?
Some are even outright stupid....like that BH's supposedly Felda exclusive two months ago.
Nowadays, they even tried to peddle us all kind of bullshit such as the three-in-one newspaper idea, whatever that is.
Okay, maybe the PMO people swallowed that, but those people don't care about journalism in this country.
They just want to take care of their interests.
Fuck journalists, they said.
For them, journalists are just slaves to be used to achieve their personal agendas.
The news portals are not much different too, okay.
They are simply boring.
More or less the same shit over and over again.
The other day a young lady who was applying for a college placement asked me whether it's a good idea for her to do a journalism course.
She wasn't sure what to do with her future.
I told her to do something else.
Maybe she should study English and Mandarin instead.
I think those would be of better use to her later on in life than a degree in journalism.
We can do with more people with good English and Mandarin.
Bahasa Malaysia tak pa, orang tak komplain kita hentam apa pun kalau guna bahasa kebangsaan ni.
Kalau bahasa Inggeris grammer semua kena sempurna betul, kalau tak orang kutuk kata engko bodoh lah apa lah.
Biasa lah tu.
Anyway, I told her it's tough to be a good journalist in this country.
The environment is just not right and the industry is controlled by stupid pricks.
That's why the social media is thriving as the main source of news these days....fake or not doesn't seems to matter. People trust them better than newspapers or TV stations.
I hope the young lady took my advice and be better than just being a journalist.
Her father is a former journalist, by the way. I think he would agree with me.
And hopefully her English and Mandarin will be better than mine.
Well, it's raining outside at this moment.
I'm not planning to go out today but tomorrow I have a long ride north visiting my uncle.
So, I'm conserving my energy now.
Just lying down in my room.
Missing my mother. Missing my beloved.
Ma, beloved, this is for you,
