Got my laptop back from the shop yesterday evening.
The Chinese boy who tried to fix it only managed to partially do it.
Several features were still not working, but at least I can write again.
Woke up just now, with my body aching all over.
Badly needed a massage.
Been working for about two weeks without proper break.
I am off for today and tomorrow.
So, can rest a bit, clean up the place, do my laundry etc.
I missed writing lots of things these past few days because of my laptop problem.
Okay, let me see, the important ones;
1. Azmin Ali is now Selangor MB.
I think he is the most handsome MB now. He looks a bit like that Singaporean actor Aaron Aziz.
Not my taste though.
I also think that Azmin is very smart.
He deftly maneuvered himself throughout the Selangor crisis.
Unlike his mentor DS Anwar Ibrahim, Azmin never behaves like a superman and tries to fuck everyone.
Azmin knows when to apply the brakes when necessary.
If he plays his cards right, he will soon take over from Anwar as the boss of PKR.
Anwar was definitely angry and bitter because he failed to have his wife DS Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as MB.
Azmin knows this and has been playing the good boy these past few days.
Errr....but he may kick aside Anwar even as early as next month when the guy goes to jail for liwat.
2. Pas lost badly in Pengkalan Kubor by-election.
I had expected a BN victory from the beginning.
But I didn't expect BN's majority to increase from over 1,700 to over 2,600.
That's a lot.
Pas fought BN, or to be more exact, Umno, on its own and lost.
PKR and DAP didn't help them at all during the campaigning period.
They were pissed with Pas' independent stance over the Selangor leadership crisis.
I think with this defeat, Pas is in serious decline.
People see them as divided, weak and unprincipled.
They can't even seem to stand on their own without their coalition partners trying to screw them from time to time.
Well. what do you expect when you have someone like Mat Sabu as deputy president.
3. Pas also lost big time in the Selangor power tussle.
Despite all the saber rattling at their muktamar in Johor last weekend, Pas meekly accepted the reduction of its number of Selangor exco members from four to three.
It's so lame and spineless.
The way Pas president DS Abdul Hadi Awang was raving and ranting at the muktamar, I though his party was going to get the MB post.
But it turned out to be just hot air.
Not only they didn't get the MB post, but they also lost that one exco seat which will ensure that they can't pull another stunt of defying PKR and DAP like what happened in the ouster of TS Abdul Khalid Ibrahim case.
Pas had been castrated. Plain and simple.
The only good they are to PKR and DAP is to break the Umno's Malay vote bank. That's all.
4. DAP don't give a shit.
They have the solid support of the Chinese community and triad gangsters.
The rest doesn't really matter to them.
It's business as usual for the party.
Handsome boy Guan Eng even had his weekly sue a newspaper exercise a few days ago.
Offending article on page 14, correction and apology done by the newspaper on page 8, he demanded it on page one. Newspaper thinks that too much. So, he sues lah.
Like that also can sue....tsk tsk tsk....
Petty boy la you Guan Eng. I don't know how Betty can tahan you.
Okay, thats about it as far as politics were concerned these past few days.
I am adding two more on my blog roll.
1. Economics Malaysia
This one was recommended by my mother who thinks that I need to be more knowledgeable in economic issues.
2. Here and There | A travel blog: tales and thoughts on the road
I have always wanted to put this one on my blog roll but it had been dormant for more than a year. This very good travel blog however became active again this month. The writer, former journalist Lam Li used to be based in JB. She however writes this blog mostly in Chinese.
