What a Raya holidays! I didnt post anything since the eve of Aidilfitri. However, I was reading some good and bad blogs... and some interesting news from all over the country. Here are my personal comments:
Datuk Shah Rukh Khan
Congratulations, Shah Rukh Khan for the conferment of the 'Datukship' by Melaka State Government. I dont know what this Hindi movie star has contributed to Malaysia or Melaka (hehehe)... but sooner or later, we should also consider giving the 'Tan Sri' or 'Datuk Seri' or perhaps 'Tun' to other prominent movie stars, world leaders and other popular figures. Perhaps its time to consider giving the 'Tun' to George Bush for his anti-terrorism campaign, 'Tan Sri' to Jackie Chan for chosing Malaysia as his host nation for his movies or 'Datuk Seri' to Tony Blair for coming to Malaysia recently to give talks at University Malaya. We may also consider RPK for a 'datukship' for being the most popular blogger in Malaysia.
Hadi Awang and ISA
PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang made a statement to support the rowdy actions of Hindraf supporters at the Cabinet Hari Raya open house at the PWTC on October 1. He said there was nothing wrong with it as it was an 'American-style' provocative. Well, as he likes 'American style' so much, perhaps he also prefer to see our youths taking the streets with guns in their hands. Maybe it is also nothing wrong (to him) to launch a bloody anti-government campaign in this country.
The run-up to March 2009 Umno elections is giving us more 'kicks'. My attention is drawn at the possible clash between Khairy Jamaluddin and Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir for the Umno Youth head. Some say KJ has got his own individual strength towards victory. Others say that since Paklah is stepping down, may as well KJ go down as well. As for Mukhriz (as at today leads in the number of nominations), many associated him to his father and his blessing for the Najib-Muhyiddin combination after March 2009. Well... what have you gotta say?
