Race Issues, again.

Apparently, the Bayan Baru Umno Youth division has lodged a police report against Penang Deputy Chief Minister P. Ramasamy over his alleged remarks that Malays dominated the state civil service.

Uh, what about the remarks that moron in Bukit Bendera,
who, i'm too disgusted to even name him,
who refuses to apologize to the Chinese people for his racially infused remarks a few months ago?

Muslims are banned from Yoga? WTF??

Ok, seriously, the Malaysian Government has got to stop acting like a fool.
I mean, really? Muslim women who practices Yoga is illegal according to their stupid religious law because those women might convert into Hinduism???

How many people who practices Yoga you know who convert themselves into Hinduism?
Besides, does Yoga has anything to do, at all with Hinduism??
Most people practice it as a form of work out or health related purposes,
but, the "too-much-time-on-their-hands" Malaysian Government just couldn't stop from making a huge deal out of it.

Man, Kerajaan Malaysia apa pun boleh buat ya?
Well, Malaysia Boleh ma.

Read the following piece of news article, if you understand Malay. I'm pissed even by the sight of it. Lelaki Lembut? Fuck them.

Fatwa status yoga tetap dikeluar, tiada sebarang masalah - Jakim

KUALA LUMPUR: Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim), Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abd Aziz menafikan wujud masalah dalam memutuskan status senaman yoga oleh Majlis Fatwa berikutan pandangan sesetengah pihak yang menyatakan senaman itu tidak mempunyai unsur meditasi.

Justeru, beliau berkata, fatwa mengenai status amalan yoga akan tetap diumumkan, akan dibuat sendiri oleh Pengerusi Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan, Prof. Datuk Dr. Abdul Shukor Husin pada masa yang sesuai.

Beliau berkata, setiap fatwa yang dikeluarkan adalah berdasarkan hasil kajian oleh kumpulan pakar yang terdiri daripada lima panel yang dilantik Majlis Raja-Raja dan diteliti oleh barisan mufti dari seluruh negara.

"Apa yang diputuskan adalah berdasarkan kajian yang teliti. Adakah kita akan beri perhatian berat kepada pendapat sesetengah pihak yang dikeluarkan mengikut emosi? Tentunya tidak!

"Fatwa dikeluarkan berdasarkan kajian yang terperinci dan berdasarkan keutamaan masyarakat dan negara," katanya selepas merasmikan Program Sunathon Perdana Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (JAWI) 2008, di Masjid Al-Muqarrabin, di sini.

Status mengenai hukum senaman yoga sepatutnya dibuat pada 7 November lalu namun telah ditunda ke satu tarikh yang masih belum ditetapkan berikutan pengerusinya mempunyai tugasan di luar negara.

Sebelum ini, Pensyarah Fakulti Pengajian Islam Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Prof. Zakaria Stapa berkata, pergerakan senaman yoga adalah berdasarkan unsur-unsur agama Hindu yang dikhuatiri boleh memesongkan akidah.

Sementara itu, ketika diminta mengulas mengenai pandangan Mufti Perlis, Dr. Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin supaya fatwa tidak harus hanya terhad kepada pengkid tetapi juga kepada golongan 'lelaki lembut', Wan Mohamad berkata, fatwa dikeluarkan mengikut keutamaan isu-isu yang wujud dalam masyarakat.

"Apabila kita dapati, pengkid boleh mengancam institusi sosial dan keluarga, kita beri keutamaan.

"Masyarakat boleh menilai dengan bijaksana bahawa gejala ini lebih parah daripada perlakuan sumbang kepada jenayah seksual.

"Pengkid kini dianggap sebagai satu trend. Yang bahayanya, kalau dianggap tidak salah dan oleh sebab itu fatwa muncul untuk membangkitkan kesedaran," katanya.

Ditanya sama ada isu 'lelaki lembut' akan diberi perhatian oleh Majlis Fatwa selepas ini, Wan Mohamad berkata, ia bergantung kepada proses kajian dan penyelidikan yang dijalankan.

Berhubung tindakan beberapa NGO bukan Islam yang mengadakan demonstrasi membantah keputusan Majlis Fatwa berhubung isu itu, Wan Mohamad berkata, pihaknya tidak akan terpengaruh kepada tekanan daripada bukan Islam kerana hal ini melibatkan tanggungjawab agensi Islam.

Horrible Letter in Broken English

Worm regard,
Ah Beng

I came across this piece of hilarious letter through Wat'z in My Brain
Really funny. This is something only Malaysian could come up with.


The weather's getting cold.
Guess it is winter.

Time to flip out my Marc Jacobs scarf.
Well...maybe a few more days.

Mid-terms' over, time for a change.

Starting from tomorrow,
i'll be...

focusing on my drama rehearsal
study more
focus on ISC Club craps
focusing more on practicing swimming
focusing on my storytelling competition.

New life, i guess.

No more mr. nice Wyatt.
Mr. Wyatt will be extremely busy,
and won't give a damn on the lives of others.

Friends you say?
What the hell does "friend" mean at all?
They just leave you, or make you leave them.

Being alone has its ups,
i guess. No noise buzzing around me,
i can do more stuff, and focus more on myself.

Delete (The previous post and my stupid naive thinking)

I've deleted the previous post, in case anyone is wondering, due to the strong nature of words.
Sometimes, i guess it's better to keep EVERYTHING i feel to myself, because as per the perspectives of most people around me,
i am merely someone who they come to ask for help when they are in trouble but avoid when there aren't...or to annoy at their will.

I'm guessing...well, whenever i tried to express a little of my feelings, things would simply go bad to a giant explosion of word spats online.

Back to my hectic life,
keep myself a distance from people,
no one worth trusting around me,
i will ALWAYS be left alone.

I've learn, the hard way,
that i should keep things only to myself,
live on my life pretending to be someone or something else.

I'm P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C.

Najib = The next PM??

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has won the Umno presidency unopposed, which sets him on track to becoming the country’s next Prime Minister.

He secured his 133rd nomination from the Cameron Highlands division yesterday evening and went on to pick even more nominations at the end of the day.

A candidate needs at least 58 of the 191 nominations to be eligible to contest.

By passing the 133 mark, he has denied any interested candidate the possibility of contesting because the person would not be able to secure the required 58 nominations.

This means that Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who received his first nomination for the presidency on Saturday from his own Gua Musang division, is out in the cold.

Other than Gua Musang, all other divisions that have met have given their nomination to Najib for the party’s top post.

The current party president, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, an­­nounced last month that he would not defend his party post and would hand over the reins of power to his successor, who he said he hoped would be Najib.

Najib has to win the party presidency to succeed Abdullah as Prime Minister. By convention in the Barisan Nasional Government, the Umno president is Prime Minister.

As at 10.30pm, Najib’s tally was 140.

Other than Cameron Highlands, the Deputy Prime Minister picked up nominations yesterday from Teluk Kemang, Tawau, Ayer Hitam, Tanjung Malim, Batu Kawan, Segamat, Sekijang, Tampin, Kuala Pilah, Balik Pulau, Kapar, Indera Mahkota, Bentong, Puchong, Kulim Bandar Baru, Labuan, Klang, Teluk Intan, Kota Raja, Kota Belud, Pandan and Muar.

Najib’s victory was expected. And this has made the contest for the deputy presidency all the more interesting. Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is the favourite and still the lone candidate to qualify.

However, the other two aspirants for the post, Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam and Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib, are edging closer to the eligibility mark.

The Malacca Chief Minister, who is also an Umno vice-president, has 32 nominations and needs only seven more to qualify, while the tally for the former Selangor mentri besar, who is also the party’s information chief, is 29.

A candidate for the deputy presidency needs 39 nominations to be eligible.

Interestingly, Ayer Hitam was the third division in Johor not to nominate Johorean Muhyiddin for the deputy presidency.

The former Johor mentri besar only got 25 votes against Mohd Ali’s whopping 310 votes for the nomination.

All divisions in Malacca nominated Mohd Ali for the deputy post, while in Selangor all divisions except for Shah Alam picked Muhammad.

Oh my freakin' God. If he's the next PM, well, we'll see about that.

I'd probably won't go back to Malaysia. Taiwan is a better place than the *ahem!* racist country.

Kousuke Atari 中 孝介 あたり こうすけ

After almost 3 months of release of the mega hit Taiwanese movie Cape No.7 [海角七號],
i finally get the chance to catch it on my pps stream system.

I got to say, this is the second Taiwanese movie since the heart wrenching Eternal Sunshine that made me bawl senseless.

Anyway, the point is, this guy who portrays the Japanese guy in the movie as well as the singer,
Kousuke Atari [中 孝介 あたり こうすけ], is like the biggest highlights of the movie. Not that he's super cute and all that, but his voice, singing that beautiful song called それぞれに that made me fall head over heels over him.

From the stuff that i manage to dug up about him, he seems to be famous for his signature "soul healing" voice, which, undeniably is really that, and divine as well as heavenly. Listening to his songs last night actually made me cry for no particular reasons, since i don't understand Japanese at all.

Do check him out.
