If a bus driver can take on a leadership role in an emergency situation like this, I have to salute Singapore for demonstrating to the world how their people’s reasoning is superior.

See story below:

Woman arrested for boarding bus in the buff

A MIDDLE-AGED woman has been arrested after boarding a bus naked – the latest in a string of such incidents.

The Chinese woman in her 50s turned up at a bus stop in Ubi wearing a black blouse and pair of black pants, Lianhe Wanbao reported.

She slowly stripped, putting her clothes into a large handbag she was carrying.

Several minutes later, the number 22 bus ferrying more than 20 passengers reportedly arrived at the bus stop next to Block 302 in Ubi Avenue 1.

The woman boarded it and made her way to the back.

The bus driver is said to have promptly stopped the bus, ordered the male passengers to the front and women to the back, where they could help shield the woman.

Read the full story in Friday’s edition of The Straits Times.

But on the other hand, more people are going nude in Singapore…

Yikes! What happened along the way to a first world country, Mr Lee Kuan Yew? No wonder Dr. Mahathir so wary of it.

O that superior man! He would not eat the bread of idleness!

This is dedicated to those who shoulda, woulda, coulda but produced nada:

—-

Kan-kan go his blows on the sandal trees,
And he places what he hews on the river’s bank,
Whose waters flow clear and rippling.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get the produce of those three hundred farms ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the badgers hanging up in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

Kan-kan go his blows on the wood for his spokes,
And he places it by the side of the river,
Whose waters flow clear and even.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get your three millions of sheaves ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the three-year-olds hanging up in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

Kan-kan go his blows on the wood for his wheels,
And he places it by the lip of the river,
Whose waters flow clear in rippling circles.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get the paddy for your three hundred round binns ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the quails hanging in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

Sex bombed or Rise of MCA?

What do you get when a wannabe blockbuster movie director deploys tired, rehashed dialogues and film in antagonisingly slow paced motion? Anybody interested in tired cinematography techniques? Would the eyelids be batting to stay awake if there is no sexing up with CGI to retain the attention of the young moviegoers? Don’t we seriously need a gung-ho hero and his sidekicks to inspire adulation from us voyeurists watchers?

Yawn…

Undeniably, requests for reruns on the youtube for that movie featuring the unknowing star Mr Chua Soi Lek and Miss X actress have risen since Chua himself has been sacked from the venerable stable of famed movie house MCA.

The current reruns caused much a dejavu moment for the legions of voyeurists who have already seen the show many a times in 2008.

So enamoured were the many fans with the actor of the famed voyeurist show, that they are now attempting to re-live their connextion in real life with the star, the man.

The many devoted fans are now coming out of the closet, to re-align with the star in attempt to reinstate his stalled career.

The CSL fan club headed by the enthusiastic Tan Chai Ho and Loh Seng Kok as campaign coordinators are untiredly going around town to boost support for Mr Chua’s retention.

The latest we heard from the CSL campaign team was that 921 fans will be jumping up high in the air to show their devotion to CSL.

Hopefully, this will melt the MCA’s board of directors’ hearts and bend their minds to sign back CSL in time to star in the next movie blockbuster “General Election the 13th : Rise of MCA

P/S: I think I am in depression… must be suffering from serious withdrawal due to lousy films offerings in cinema circuit. Why can’t we have many movies like District 9? I crave for movies like District 9 – good for the brain and humanity. Love the Christopher Johnson character, what a real hero. I’ve watch it twice already in the cineplex, man.

That’s not very nice, Anwar Ibrahim…

My heart is broken.

2 lovely female calon asking for my vote. Shahrizat the veteran lawmaker and Nurul Izzah the freshie idealist.

One would be forgiven for thinking that it be a woman vs woman political contest. No problem.

Until on nomination day… I saw Anwar Ibrahim outside the Bangsar Sports Complex. And then I heard Malaysiakini, radio, internet and newspapers telling me that my beloved Lembah Pantai is now the hottest seat this GE.

No…! No more plain woman vs woman fair contest. It’s now man against woman.

This is not fair, Anwar. It’s not fair to Nurul Izzah to put her through this. It’s also not fair to put Lembah Pantai voters in a spot, to take them away from well loved Shahrizat.

I’m not happy with this development. Not at all.
