Down they come

Aihh.. Its getting from bad to worse.. No one seems to care about mother nature anymore.. The heat is getting worse.. The haze is getting worse.. But the trees come tumbling down anyway..

This picture was taken along the road between UKM and its commuter station.. The number of huge, green trees being cut down in Bangi alone the last couple of weeks has been staggering!! What's the big idea anyway.. Were they asked to trim it down or botak it off? Okay, they mite regrow they say; a week ago I saw the exact same 'trimming' somewhere in Bangi. After a few days, all those 'botak' trees were chopped off at the base of the trunk..

There she goes... there she goes again...

Herald 'Allah-less'

Hot on the heels of scandals n accusations, many of you are aware of the decision announced by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Abdulllah Mohd Zin that the cabinet had disallowed Catholic publication Herald from using the words Allah, Solat, Kaabah and Baitullah in its weekly’s Bahasa Malaysia section.

“One of the reasons given to uphold the restriction is because that it has long been the practice of this country that the word Allah refers to God according to the Muslim faith,” said Abdullah according to the Star.

It was only proper for other religions to use the word God and not Allah when referring to their God in respective beliefs, he added.

Click the link below for the full story by blogger Lucia Lai. If I start talking about it, all bombastic words all will come out if you know what i mean.. =)

On my part...fine... they don't want us non-Muslims to use the word 'Allah' rite.. So from now on, I guess all primary and secondary non-Muslim students in all schools in Selangor and Johor are exempted from singing their state anthems respectively? Why? Both of them contain 'Allah' what.. ;)

Why I'm writing this post? Because I remember being asked to sing that %&@#! anthem in school...

Scandal? What scandal?

I'm sure most of you all have already got the headlines the 1st few days of the new year... Besides the fireworks pics, there was also the sex scandal involving the Health Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek. Well its not really a scandal, Malaysians just turned it into

Not withstanding the fact that he has been the target of political sabotage, the reason of his resignation from all of his post in my opinion is due to Malaysians who can't get past their narrow views and look at it from a bigger picture... and threw out a hardworking and dedicated people's minister out of his seat..dooming the goverment to more and more useless ppl..

I respect and salute him for being accountable and responsible for his actions. It's something you don't see much in today's world..a world where everyone only cares about is their position, wealth and power.. In his reign of Health Minister he has done countless deeds to public service particularly at hospitals where waiting time has been reduced from 3 hours to an hour, direct and fast medical access for the disabled and not to mention, he has visited 70% of all hospitals in the country! Unofficially i might add! that means he visited the hospitals without them knowing it.. If that doesn't spell dedication, I do not know what does..

His apology of his actions..accepted by friends and family but not by most Malaysians..How can the closest people to him accept and the public don't? Like lah the public know him so well personally and emotionally?

Don't think Malaysians are naive when it comes to such sexual acts...such videos are all over the internet involving none other than the public itself.. What happenend was a private and personal issue..but political sabotage..and the people's sabotage has reaped its ugly head once again..

Now to all ya other national leaders out there..this sexual video is nothing as compared to how this country is being managed! Its a bigger crime than what Dr Chua has done.. He served his country well.. Dr S******** get the dumb hint! Leave in grace.. or leave in shame.. Guess he has chosen his fate already.. gud day!

*rubinho thanks all Malaysians involved in getting rid of a people's minister...the last few around...
