Cough cough...

˙ƃuɐɾuɐɯ ɐlıƃ ƃuɐɹo ɯɐɔ ʞnʇɐq nʞɐ ˙llɐ ʇɐ llǝʍ ƃuılǝǝɟ ʇou ˙ʎɐpoʇ pǝɹoq os sɐʍ

Ok... I did feel just like all over the place just like that cause I was coughing my brains out. Da dua hari actually. Tu yang asik dok umah, cause the cough mixture makes me so drowsy... so keja asik tido je. Kalao tak, tak bermaya semacam.

So spent the day in front of my laptop layan anything and everything. Especially Facebook chatting with some friends in the business.

Damn. I used to hate Facebook so much I hope I don't get addicted.

How rude!

Anyway spent time deleting some 'friends' in my list cause they do nothing but spam me.

This is TOO true!

Also tried to remove an image of me I didn't like in friends' album. Didn't want to just untag it, but remove it totally. Akibatnya ni keluar.

Bloody hell! They read my mind! The photo was bloody unflattering (cue my so-called friends rushing to check out which one I meant) - and apparently, I wasn't the first to have the thought of trying to report an image to have it forcibly removed. Heh... matilah ko! Facebook IS indeed evil!!! Heh...

No action for today apart from that. Boring day takpe la.. da semakin dekat waktu sibuk.

By the way, korang read today tak pasal the damn higher toll charges to be implemented on 1 March?

It cover five freaking highways including the North-South Expressway (PLUS), Sprint/Kerinchi/Damansara Link highways, Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Expressway (AKLEH), Sungai Besi Highway and the New Pantai Expressway (NPE).

For the PLUS highway, it will be an increase of 5%. Pantat tau.... aku da la kena pakai tiap hari WALAUPUN jalan federal highway ke NKVE sama je jam cam the Parliament cafeteria smoking corner every break.

For the Sprint/Kerinchi/Damansara Link highways, it will be an increase of between 30sen and 50sen.

The Sungai Besi Highway will see an increase of 10sen, while the AKLEH and NPE will be increased by 50sen and 40sen respectively.

Pokaemon betul la. I thought everyone was talking about some flying recession, ni lak we get hit AGAIN? How much you want to bet harga barangan pas ni naik lagi because of 'transport cost'?

The Prime Minister has called for a delay, but enough of this bullshit la. People are getting hit hard. They can take their time with the 'stimulus' (more like stim-less) package but they keep hitting us with hikes for everything.

Those in public office seem to forget there's a reason why they're called PUBLIC SERVANTS. I say stop the damn toll hikes, and cut ministers' pay by 20%. Leadership by example right?

All overseas trips, be it business or even pleasure at any governmental expense be CANCELLED with immediate effect and more cost cutting measures be drawn up ASAP. And they can all bring their own teh tarik and karipap for that meeting ala pot luck.

And to have them understand the call of idiots to use public transport more like it's an immediate answer to these toll hikes, make each and every one of them depend on public transport. Preferbly busses and LRT so they know how ducked up our transport system is, instead of wasting more Ringgit, speeding about with escorts.

Enough with elections and wasting more funds - just freaking work on changes.

Congratulations to Encik Anas Zubedy for his PAID full page ad in The Star on Page N37 for this message.

Dear Malaysian Politicians,

Please stop the power chase, call for a truce and focus on the economy.

I do not claim to speak on behalf of all Malaysians, but I have strong convictions that many share my sentiments.

Our concern today is not who rules the country or heads the state governments but the looming bad economy.

Whether Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat leads, it is meaningless if Malaysians have no job to go to, no money to pay rent and no means to put food on the table.

I am a business owner, like other business owners and managers of corporations I have a responsibility to ensure people under my care and payroll continue to have jobs and a decent income to take home. We work hard and willing to go the extra mile to make sure our nation not only survive this crisis but come out stronger and wiser. We need your help.

Let me explain. I am in the business of Training, Development and Consultancy and have 20 people in my team.

Saedah is 42. She keeps the office clean and helps organise the training rooms. She has four children and her husband is unemployed. She was first hired on a part time basis, because she is very hard working and has a great attitude, we offered her a full time job to help provide a stable income for her family. Even then, when her third child started school this year, it was a struggle for her to buy new school uniforms and other necessities. Saedah lives on a ‘kais bulan, makan bulan’ basis, so, if she is jobless, her tap runs dry.

Samsuri is 27 years old. He lives with his sister and her family in a low cost government flat in Sunway. He does our despatch, helps with various clerical works and occasionally acts as a driver. During the first week at zubedy, we learned that he not only did not have money to buy new clothes and shoes for work, he had no money for lunch. Like Saedah, if he has no job, his tap runs dry too.

Alicia in Client Servicing turns 26 this year. She lives with her dad who is 71 years old and retired. Her mom passed away when she was little. Alicia is a hard-working team member, has a gentle caring outlook and fun to be with. (We like to poke fun at her as she blushes easily). Last May her dad went through a major operation, thank God he has recovered well. Alicia needs a job, both for herself and her dad.

Sudesh, 38, is one of our facilitators. When his father passed away last year, he moved back and lives with his mother in Seremban. He shuttles between Kuala Lumpur and Seremban daily, leaving home sometimes as early as 4 in the morning and returning late at night. He is no stranger to hard work and sacrifice, he knows what he needs to do to survive and to care for his mother, but he too needs a job.

Like fellow Malaysians, every one of us in zubedy needs employment, those that live from hand to mouth like Saedah and Samsuri and others like Alicia and Sudesh with family to care for. We Malaysians need the Malaysian economy to be strong. We need you, our leaders, to work hard and to work together to make our economy viable.

So this is my plea.

Pakatan Rakyat, please stop your attempts to take over the federal government and persuade BN’s lawmakers to join you. Stop all legal proceedings, no more 916 and let go, just let go. The nation can wait till the next general elections if they want change. By doing so, Malaysians will see your party as caring, unselfish and gracious and give you their support in the next elections.

Barisan Nasional, please stop any attempts to take over PR states and win over PR’s lawmakers. You have proven your point with Perak. The nation can wait for the next general elections if they want your party. Focus all your talent, energy and hard work in steering the country out of an economic downturn. By doing so, Malaysians will see your party as caring, unselfish and smart and give you their support in the next elections.

BN and PR! Call for a truce. Get together and compromise. Someone has to give in. Or has hate consumed your heart till it blinds you? You can do it. You have enough intelligent people between you. I am sure you can find solutions. Take the nation to heart. That is why you are in politics in the first place.

Focus on the people.

Focus on the economy.

Now if only some of them would spend a little money on their hearing aid batteries to listen to what the average Malaysian out there has to say. No toll hikes! No extra charges of any sort. Figure out a way. That's why you guys are elected there in he first place.

To serve the people. Not waste money by keeping all the lights on in Parliament till the middle of the night. Sheesh....

PS - I hope we don't have to resort to 'other means of payment' like below. Malaysians have been buggered enough.

PPS - Idol was so boring. I still stick with my original choices of Jasmine, Kai and Adam though. But if Americans put it to vote, I hope someone like Kris makes it even though he reminds me too much of that Archuleta dork!
