There is only hope for Pakatan Rakyat in the guise that we have become familair with : PKR, DAP and PAS. Anything else is not an option to be even contemplated if victory at the next general election is to be a reality. And yes........last, but not least...get rid of Anwar Ibrahim!
Who is this Lensa? Another PKR or Anwar's lackey(babu)? These individuals ore so moronic that they are stupid enough to blame Pas and Hj Hadi for all the rackets and rumpuses arousing from PKR and Anwar's misadventures and greed for power. Pas had nothing to do with the ill-fated Kajang Move and was never consulted let alone agreed with the stupid move. When things got out of hand, these punks placed the blame on Pas and Hj Hadi!! And the immoral act of stealing the loyalty of a partner's party members to fulfill one's desire is nothing more than an act of sabotage and despicable!! The disparaging remarks and actions by both PKR and Dap leaders of late clearly show their opportunistic and chauvinistic nature. The incessant insults heaped upon Pas that continued after the MB imbroglio has passed can only be interpreted as a strategy to oust Pas from the coalition or to force Pas to be subservient to PKR and DAP rules forgetting that the former had existed long before them. As you correctly said, if they get rid of Pas, PKR and DAP might as well pack their bags and PR can close shop.
11.30 PM Monday night:
As I start to write this, a dear and much loved Uncle of mine is fighting for his life at Pantai Medical Center. His daughter, just a few minutes ago, sent us an email telling us that "Daddy is fading fairly rapidly" and ask that we pray "to make things easy for him".
We have all been through these kind of situation and we all know too well the emotions involved. Our heart beats much too fast....our emotions are hard to keep in check and our thoughts wish our physical self to be by his bedside....as if our presence would be needed there. Our memory flip through our times together and seek out the times when we last spoke, last met or even our last thoughts of him....some of these thoughts are slow to leave you ...some linger in your consciousness unwilling to leave because you draw comfort from them.
And all over inside me and within me is that feeling of helplessness of not being able to do anything to make things better for my dear Uncle and for my grieving self. Such is life.
I remember these words that I read somewhere..."In the evening of your life you will be judged on love alone!" how true this is!
How true...how achingly true if the one you expect to love you is long gone and you are alone. My Uncle's wife left him many many years ago...and I remember it well because I and my wife took her to GH that evening a long long time ago from her Bangsar home in Jalan Maarof to the GH where she finally passed away a few days later.
My wife is sleeping in the bed beside me....and I am comforted that she is there. Two weeks ago on a Sunday I took her for morning coffee to the cafe in front of our apartment. As I sat in front of her I asked her earnestly if she knew that I love her very much...she smiled and said "yes"..and I asked her how she knew...and she said "Your eyes tells me"....it made my day!
My wife can no longer remember what she has for lunch or dinner as soon as it is over. But she knows enough to tell me if she does not like what she is eating! There is no point in me asking if she liked what she had earlier on for lunch. She forgets! Her long term memory is still very good though she does still tends to forget somethings.
Yesterday afternoon I turned the TV to the Greek section. My wife is Greek and she can speak Greek well but she has not used the language for a very long time. She could not understand what was being said in Greek as we sat through the news bulletin...in fact I had to tell her that there were speaking in Greek...and as they like to say...if my wife could remember to say it too......she would have said...it is all Greek to me!
8.04 AM Tuesday morning:
I just received this: We will continue to pray.
My wife is still asleep...she remembers Ann's father ...but her dementia plays with her memory...but Ann's mother, Angela, was her best friend in those days long gone by in Bangsar...and so I tell my wife that Ann's father is Angela's husband...and recognition sets in and she is concern. She is still asleep and I will tell her that all is well...so far, for him.
Such is life.
I am not ashamed to tell you that I cried...and still am crying even as I try to write about this man's life.
Oh God....my eyes are wet and my heart heavy reading what I came across on Facebook this morning at:
https://www.facebook.com/SukanStarTV through my cousin Iza's facebook.
All the problems of the world...all the problems we have with politics, race and religion seems insignificant when I think of what this man has to go through in life everyday...the comforts of life we all take for granted is alien to him...waking up in a warm and comfortable bed...having breakfast with our loved ones....having food, shelter and clothing....none of this are his to have.
I am not ashamed to tell you that I cried...and still am even as I try to write about his life.
I am too far away to do anything....please everyone....anyone who has a heart...anyone who has some love for others...please help. Do not judge. Do not think that he is not of my race, not of my religion and not of my family.
Like you and me he is a human being that deserves better.....make his life better.....relieving human suffering is our sacred duty. Yes we want a world without war without conflict but also one without human sufferings..we must not be indifferent to human sufferings...and if we can prevent it, reduce it...why not!
Please help. .....and following is the heartfelt lament of the person who came across him....it is in bahasa but do make an attempt to read it and you will feel in your heart what that person felt....please help.
Assalamualaikum , ALLAH! ALLAH! ALLAH!
Saya Cuma nak Share Bnda Ini kepada umum...
Gambar2 yg Saya Upload Ini Adalah Gmbar Yg saya sendiri Tangkap ....
Sewaktu Nak balik Rumah Dari Hantar adik Ke hospital, Saya terlihat Kotak2 seperti Ada Seseorng Didalam...
Pada mulanya Saya ingin biarkan Dan menyangkakan ia ialah pekerja Yg ingin berehat2... Tpi nth knpa Hati ni.Gatal sgt Nak buat U'Turn.. Nak jgk tahu siapa Insan Itu...
Allahurabbi... Terkejut sgt Rupa-rupanya seorang Warga Tua yg hanya memakai Baju/seluar lusuh yg berbaring sambil menyapu2 ubat pada kaki..
Saya memberanikan Diri utk Tegur pakcik ini... Dgn Cpatnya pakcik ni bangun terkejut mgkin dgn kdtgan saya...
Tersentuh nya Hati...
Ya ALLAH... Bila mndgr pnjelasan pakcik ini siapapun pasti menitis air mata ..
Dia punyai keluarga, Tetapi Tiada siapa mahu dia tgl bersama, Dia dihantar ke rumah Warga tua.. namun Dihalau keluar oleh Ketua rumah warga tua itu...
yg beliau beritahu nama 'Darren'...
Lagi sedih bila pakcik tu cakap....biarlah dia hdup bgini.. mgkin dia hanya menyusahkan ... bagi keluarganya..
Bila saya tanya bagaimana pakcik nak makan/minum?
Walaupun pkcik tu tak jawab pertanyaan saya...tapi saya sendiri nmpk plastik bewarna merah itu adalah sisa2 mknan yg mgkin diperolehi dimana2 restoran atau Hospital ...Dan saya yakin itu adalah makanan harian beliau.. Ya ALLAH...
Dari segi percakapan beliau, saya yakin beliau berbangsa kadazan dusun...bila saya tanya sama ada dia mmpunyai identity card, Dan saya dapati beliau beragama Islam .. Dia Tak patut diperlakukan seperti ini...
Kawan2 Tolong bantu pakcik ini.. dia memerlukan bantuan...dia hanya tinggal dibawah pokok yg hnya beratapkan Kotak..
Tiada apa yg mmpu saya cakap... hanya mmpu berdoa semoga pakcik ini cekal dgn kehidupan ini.. semoga tabah..
Sebelum Balik saya sempat menghulur sedikit wang yg tak seberapa namun ditolak oleh nya .. saya terus mendesak nya utk ambil.. bkn la bnyk.sgt tapi mgkin boleh beli makan yg baik sikit.. alhmdullilah akhirnya beliau akur... Dan tak putus2 ucap terimaksih pada saya..
Tersentuh sungguh hati.. apalagi yg mampu saya buat saya buat... saya tak dapat bayangkan jika dia ialah. Bapa saya ...
Wahai Pihak Atasan !! sila ambil perhatian !! org ini memerlukan bantuan...

PM announces 9 day working visit to Malaysia.

Engkau orang ni macham macham punya cerita lah! Betul tak respect Rosmah punya husband! As Rodney Dangerfield always say: "I get no respect !"
Neither does Najib.
Everyone keeps hitting Najib below the belt. It is a wonder that he can still perform his manly duties upon his wife! He is already NOT performing his duties as PM! So kalau he does not perform his manly duties and his PM duties how? Is this what they call a double dissolution?
That is why the above news is so welcome.
At last he will spend a few days here to do some catch up work before Christmas and New Year is once again upon us and the two of them will be off again busy chasing the dragon...i.e. chasing the sun to put in some extra days celebrating New Year!
No such thing for most of us...we would be lucky to even catch the ice cream man any time he comes to our neighborhood.
or the kachang putih seller:
Meanwhile while we patiently wait for the Ice Cream and the Kachang Putih man to do their rounds again.....let us all wait for Najib's visit.
cakap cakap : Azmin Ali must be thinking : "Defend me from my friends; I can defend myself from my enemies"
PKR...the heir presumptive patiently waits.
Anwar Ibrahim, Azizah, Nurrul, Nasution, Rafizi and gang are all on the warpath going hammer and tongs for Khalid’s scalp. All the reserves of goodwill and much depleted patience heaped upon them in abundance by a once adoring public are at empty.
Wither goes Azmin?
When the dust has settled within PKR in the not too distant future I will be so bold as to suggest that Azmin and those patiently biding their time with him, will be left standing within PKR.
What Azmin will make of what is left of PKR is for him to know and for us to find out.
For now bridges are being built, fortresses secured and loyalties reaffirmed within PKR and Pakatan Rakyat to ensure that when Azmin makes his move failure is not an option! Anwar be afraid...be very afraid!
