I would like to thank all who visited this blog, especially those
who commented on the issues that I wrote.
As of now, the most read post is
Stupid Malay men
which I wrote at the height of campaigning of the Teluk Intan
by-election in May 2014.
For comparison, this is what I wrote exactly a year ago,
and what I wrote the previous year
As for today, I'm still semi-retiring from writing about politics.
Can't totally quit as if I do so I'll be accused of all sorts of nonsense.
The last time I tried to do that, I was accused by some pro-Najib people of being banished, banned and what nots for not towing the line.
Then there's a bunch of DAP rejects trying to take credit of it as if they are the ones who managed to hound me out of cyberspace.
Also, some anti-Najib people had went around telling the world that I wanted to quit writing politics because I was not paid to do so anymore.
What a bunch of shallow, pathetic losers.
These are the type of people who think that the world revolves around them just because some people read their blog.
Their bloated ego and sense of self importance got the better of them.
Armchair and paid blogging do not make one a political expert, okay.
Believe it or not, I have actually been on the Malaysian political battleground for quite a while.
I'm talking about really walking around meeting people on the ground and stuff .
Yet, still I don't claim myself as an expert of everything or anything.
What I wrote were mostly just my opinion from what I observed myself.
For instance, when I wrote about the Teluk Intan by-election, that's because I was actually there for the whole duration of it.
I didn't just pop by for a day in Teluk Intan and then wrote about the by-election as if I knew everything about the whole thing.
Worse still if I'm just sitting at home and blogging as if I'm the expert of Teluk Intan because I can make some fancy charts and theories.
That's why, when someone asked for my opinion about the impact of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad quitting Umno last night, I just said I wouldn't know for sure.
Logically though, I don't think anything visible will occur.
It's not like there will be an exodus of Umno members quitting the party because Dr Mahathir did so.
I'm of that opinion based on what happened in 2008 when Dr Mahathir quit the party to protest against the leadership of Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Umno members were not bothered to quit along. They just continued as normal....but many continued to protest from within the party too.
I saw it happened back then and that's why I concluded the whole thing that way.
It's as simple as that.
I don't think a fancy chart is needed to explain it...unless of course if you desperately needed to impress readers or please your paymasters, maybe.
Okay, that's all for now.
Need to get up and get ready for the day.
