Someone who read my last posting about the Taliban asked me why I seemed to hate China so much.
He made the assumption because I argued that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is worse than the Taliban.
Well, actually I don't hate China.
I just don't like the authoritarian CCP.
As for China the country, I have fond memories of Shanghai....particularly that beautiful time at the Bund.
And I like Chinese people in general. Those in Malaysia too.
My mom and beloved are both Chinese.
But unfortunately I don't really like the Chinese-dominated DAP as a party.
Still, I don't hate DAP people. It's just the ideology that I dislike.
But of course some of the DAP people are very irritating and they sometimes come here and kacau me at this blog.
But that's normal lah. Umno also has irritating people.
It all depends on the individuals.
Actually, I don't even hate the CCP people. Made friends with some of them, who were genuinely nice to me.
They had in fact invited me to attend Xi Jinping's inauguration ceremony in 2012.
Really. I was there in Beijing that early winter. Wrote about it several times in the past.
I think I' may even be okay with the CCP if it stops bullying people in Xinjiang and Hong Kong as well as stop threatening Taiwan and leave it in peace.
Ya, especially Taiwan, because my mom and beloved both really love that COUNTRY.
My mom and beloved are actually traditional Chinese and not pro-US or anything like that.
They just don't like the CCP bullying behaviour. I have to admit that I'm heavily influenced by them.
Ya, if only the CCP could stop being so mean.
The truth is, the political party which I dislike most in the world at the moment is not the CCP.
It's actually the BJP which currently rules India.
As far as I'm concerned it's the worst "penunggang agama" among all political parties in the world.
I even actually believe that it's worse than the Taliban.
At least the CCP doesn't use religion as an excuse to do bad things.
And I definitely prefer to visit China again rather than India.
I have bad memories of Mumbai, okay.
Maybe I'll write about it one of these days.
Well, I'm actually writing this post because I'm bored at this very moment.
Don't feel like writing about local politics though because I'm tired of it.
As for the Covid crisis, I'm now just waiting for the vaccination to reach a level where it would be safe to open up the country again.
Hopefully that would be very soon.
I'm dying to travel again.
Maybe I really should try going to Afghanistan, as suggested by someone who commented in my last post.
Heard that it's actually a beautiful country.
Well, that depends on whether the government is okay for Malaysians to visit that country lah.
See lah how.
Maybe the Taliban people really turn out to be good guys this time and manage to make things better over there.

This is a severe case of kuman di seberang laut nampak, gajah di depan mata tak nampak.
"Penunggang agama", huh?
Something like this?
"Najib, Hadi sertai himpunan solidariti Rohingya
Hadir sama dalam perhimpunan yang bermula jam 8.30 pagi itu ialah Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi dan Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
Selain itu, timbalan Presiden PAS, Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, Ketua Pemuda PAS Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Aziz dan Setiausaha Agung PAS, Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan juga dilihat hadir.
Para peserta membawa sepanduk, antaranya berbunyi 'bebaskan Rohingya' dan 'Rohingya memerlukan suara anda untuk hapuskan pembersihan etnik'."
Oh ya, by the way - more than 40 "Islamic" NGOs supported this event.
So what happened?
What happened, really?
Oh I forgot, nobody gave a shit after this 100% political stunt, right? The "care" (konon) for the Rohingya was switched off. No longer part of the ummah, I guess.
Now the "in" flavour is Palestine, so we can all tumpang glamer and fly their flag on on our FB. Hoorey! "See how caring I am?" Matsals call this "virtue signalling". But this is actually a tactic invented by Madey in the 1980s, when he was chasing the PAS vote.
Not so original, after all.
Malaysian chapter of the BJP getting angry...hahahahaDelete
Not angry....laughing at the hypocrisy : )Delete
But seriously, what happened to "Save The Rohingya"?
Can you remind UMNO and PAS?
Good lah you are not angry. At least the firemen are safe for now. Hahahaha.Delete
But not security guards it seemsDelete
Kih kih kih.....Delete
Ohhhhh, that's not a good topic, dear Annie.
Puts you in the same category as PAS and UMNO - i.e. pretending to care for a cause you don't really give a shit about : )
To prove your sincere love for the Taliban, please post the receipt for the new burqa, or even better, a photo of you wearing it.
I'm sure it flatters your figure!
Don't keep your fans waiting, OK?
"Maybe the Taliban people really turn out to be good guys this time and manage to make things better over there."ReplyDelete
Have you bought your burqa yet, Annie (make sure you have the mesh over your eyes, ya!, otherwise they will shoot you) because we need to hear your news report.
After all, no way the BBC & Aljazeera are reliable, kan?
As you care so much, why not have a Himpunan Solidariti for the Hazaras?
But do that later, make sure you buy your burqa first, okay : )
Have a good flight!
I am not sure Annie as a female can go to Afghanistan because the females there might be required to be accompanied by a relative. People there have already automatically started to practice this without asking and also there is some level of enforcement of this at the local level in all those areas the Taliban control, however the Taliban has not started to govern the country or even formed a government and so the shape of things to come is still unknown.ReplyDelete
Maybe there will be a Visit Afghanistan tourism campaign and the related ad's soon - Afghanistan Truly Central Asia. They do have the ethnic mix, fascinating history and culture for it and will need the hard dollars
I actually like someone to accompany me on my travels so that I don't have to carry my bags.Delete
Your are a lucky person, usually when travelling with people everyone carries their own bags as they have their own luggage to take care. not sure how one person can manage 2 people's luggage.Delete
You may come back with a husband, lucky you!
"In early July, after Taliban leaders who took control of the provinces of Badakhshan and Takhar issued an order to local religious leaders to provide them with a list of girls over the age of 15 and widows under the age of 45 for “marriage” with Taliban fighters. It’s not yet known whether they’ve complied.
If these forced marriages take place, women and girls will be taken to Waziristan in Pakistan to be re-educated and converted to “authentic Islam.”
This order has caused profound fear among women and their families living in these areas and forced them to flee and join the ranks of internally displaced persons, adding to the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Afghanistan. In the past three months alone, 900,000 people have been displaced.
Furthermore, the Taliban have signalled their intention to deny girls’ education past the age of 12, to ban women from employment and reinstate the law requiring women to be accompanied by a guardian."
Make sure he's got a big gun, okay?
No need to wait to go Afghanistan, just visit the Balochistan area in Pakistan, same features and landscape, people are Balochs and some Pashtuns, so you get a mini Afghanistan but in Pakistan where you only have to wait until covid dies down.Delete
Suggest you start planning your trip
Happy holiday there and wishing you all the best
dap ideology is okay, maybe the party name need fine tune to reflect truth, for eg distorted democratic party or dumb authoritarian party suit them better.ReplyDelete
dumb authoritarian party better, la!Delete
distorted democratic party = "DDP", not "DAP" : )
Perhaps some Yazidis should read your posting....stay safeReplyDelete
Yazidis were abused in Iraq, don't think they are Yazidis in AfghanistanDelete
The middle east is complex...their so called 'religious' wars are often tribal wars that are being justified by using religious banner. It is best msia don't meddle or take slides...let them sort out their own countries. America tried & what have they achieved after 20 yrs & trilliond of $$$ later???ReplyDelete
except Afghanistan is not in the Middle EastDelete
Adik beradik le tu...Delete
Pashtuns are predominantly an Eastern Iranian people, who use Pashto as their first language, and originate from Afghanistan and Pakistan
Apapun semua2 bersyukur la hangpa Rakyat Malaysia tau.ReplyDelete
