8.16 am Tuesday. Melbourne.
This morning my inner clock, as always, woke me up at around 5.30 am. I spent the first few minutes of waking up orientating myself with what I wanted to do with life on this very day. That is how it is when you are 70 and independently wealthy. Yes I am 70, and yes I am independently wealthy......"wealth" being to me, a condition of the mind...a state you choose to measure yourself with...with others who are less fortunate and what they would have to endure daily just to keep body and soul together daily......and "wealth" for me is when I have all that I need. And for today, I have all that I need.
But I digress....
I spent the first few minutes of being awake in bed...reach out for my note book and pen on the table beside my bed...and start writing whatever is in my head.....and these are my notes:
"Hadi...If you can't stand the heat get the f**k out of the kitchen!....one by one the road to seri pardana closes in najib's face....who is closing them??? Zahid? Mahtahir? PAS?...or is najib shooting himself in his own foot".....
What was going through my mind is that Hadi is in hospital and I was thinking of writing about it...about whether Hadi has the ability, the strength, the courage and the wisdom to take PAS through these coming months as PRU14 nears...and I wanted to write about what I believe would be the final days of najib's political life....now all this I think about in the first few minutes of being awake....and I am please with myself!
Please with myself because I am commenting on "urusan negara"...and please with myself that I have already got my blogging work planned out for the morning. So here I am still in bed, under thick warm blankets because it is 7 degrees C outside....and thinking "Aku ni steady lah!"....when I realise that the rubbish in the kitchen needs to be taken out, the dirty dishes in the sink has to be washed, the laundry to be done, the cat's bowl has to be cleaned and top up with fresh cat food.....and so on and so forth....all that I still have to do every morning before I can start to blog!
And when you have to do all those "housework" things that all housewives have to do every morning....it grounds you to the reality of life. And so for me before I can write about "urusan negara"...about Hadi or the prime minister of Malaysia...I first got to get the housework done.....but no dramas here....I do it every morning.... and then I start to blog.
So for now all the housework is done...it is 8.48 am .....made myself a cup of black Lipton tea and now I am ready to write....maybe about Hadi...maybe about najib.....maybe not. .....but first a Selamat Pagi to those who read what I write. All is good with my world....I hope it is good with yours to.
