What was I up to during the looooong holidays?

Eat, laugh, dinner, food… Not to mention the usual CNY varieties of entertainment courtesy of a lousy Astro service which blacked out during the rainy nearly everyday holidays.

Anyway, I just found out that being Hakka is sexy, arrrr….

Protest at Australian Hi Comm and KJ the chameleon

“Join us for a peaceful protest against the Aussie lawmakers’ interfering. Wednesday 17th, 10am at Aussie HiComm, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.” invited the sms.

Twaang… struck a patriotic chord within my Malaysian soul.

It is terribly insolent to intimidate a sovereign neighbour country’s courts or influence the course of its rule of law, don’t you think? I wonder why these 50 Australian lawmakers didn’t protest earlier before the trial started. They have internet news in Australia too, you know.

And so, this blogger quickly made a few phone calls to cancel some Chinese New Year visits to relatives. The ang pows will have to give way. And not to mention, my tooth’s broken filling’s visit to the dentist.

With a gnashing pain on tongue (beware how sharp a broken filling is, ouch.) I joined the bloggers protest.

I thought it was a bloggers protest, nothing to do with political parties? Rocky said so to reporters and I believe him.

But, I was distracted by the large crowd of BN youth + a sprinkling of ladies.

MCA youth towkays not even one in sight. MIC youths were there.

Makkal Sakti Party won for the most catchy looking banners of the day. But, need to catch up on their maths.

Then I saw Khairy Jamaluddin making a speech denouncing the naughty 50 Aussie lawmakers’ action.

That’s nice, here was a BN youth leader actually demonstrating his understanding of the rule of law and sovereign rights.

Too bad it doesn’t jive with public perception of him. You remember the stories, the SIL (son in law), ECM Libra, the government interfering 4th floor image that just won’t go away even as he may have gotten over that part of oral history.

Truth be told, yesterday Khairy did good at the demo. But The Malaysian Insider is saying that Khairy’s got RM2million from Najib Razak for UMNO Youth to run some events. I hope Khairy the Oxbridge graduate realise that events only work for the moment only. Smart politicians make sure they work consistently with their publics, not just organise some events to show their concern or worse, ‘tunjuk power’.

If you dream of leaving a footprint in Malaysia politics game, Khairy, you’ve got to decide what you’re gonna be about. You’ve got to decide what principles you are going to stand up for. Rule of law? Human rights? For whom and by whom? We’ve already have one famously acknowledged ‘chameleon‘ and Malaysia is too small a country to accommodate more than that.

Somebody get us the video quick!!!

Wen Jia Bao got balls – MCA dare you follow?

Filed under: Citizenry, Family, Life, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 12:17 pm

In a rare move for a Chinese politician, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao apologized yesterday to hundreds of thousands of people stranded in train stations across his country due to bad weather and a power crisis. CNN story here.

“I apologize to you all,” said Wen, using a bullhorn to address stranded travelers at a train station in Hunan province. “We are currently trying our best to repair the system.

“First we’ll fix the electric grid. After that, the trains will run again. … Then all of you can go home for the Chinese New Year,” the premier said, bringing applause from the crowd.

Sigh…  See how big brother show the world that the China government is in control and taking responsibility for the situation?

And this touches me heart… 
Brutal winter weather has pounded China’s central, eastern and southern sections, stranding hundreds of thousands of travelers ahead of the holiday. Wen flew out of Beijing en route to Hunan province on Monday night, had to detour to neighboring Hubei province because of the bad weather. He completed his trip by train, arriving in Changsha City, Hunan’s capital, on Tuesday morning.

MCA oh, MCA.

Your big homeland brother has shown courage and how to exercise leadership in this modern times.

Can you let go your servile mentality and take the hint from big brother of the world?

Time now to talk straight and direct to Malaysians. Don’t be stupidly clinging on to old paradigm. Old thinking worked well last time when us Malaysians were not sent to school. Now most can read and write. Somemore people now got opinions and their minds and hearts can reject your illogicality of thoughts and actions.

It’s a possibility if MCA don’t change gear to follow big brother Wen’s style for the new world order, I fear MCA may exit out of Malaysia history by the next, next General Elections. For being outdated mah, must throw away lah, expired already what.

P/S: Sorry lah, MCA to scold you. But I see MCA is the better party within BN. If I don’t help give you some clues, then who will? What about Malaysiakini? Malaysia-today?

Best Chinese New Year message from Ong Tee Keat

Filed under: Family, Life, news, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 12:36 pm

If you are like me, who squirms and wiggles from massive allergic reaction to the normal doodahdoodah messages from your normal politicians, you’d praise high heavens and its angels for sending you somebody to give your ears something better to listen and brains to digest.

Especially for something as big as CNY. Nothing is as big as CNY for us Chinese. Therefore, the CNY message must be befitting and not insult our intelligence or test our patience for the long year ahead.

I recommend you this nice CNY message to send to your family, friends and everybody (that makes the sender looks intelligent for once.)

MCA must make more of him. I like thinking politicians who dare to say the unsaidable in the government.

Malaysiakini and Malaysia-today must also give space lah to highlight the better politicians from MCA. We seldom hear news of this one on the net.

Heard rumours Ong Tee Keat looking for a constituency to park himself this GE…
