The Malaysian Politics

I am here now, lying down on the firm and com­fort­able hotel bed, exhaust­ed and yet ‘enjoy­ful’ typ­ing this entry of the blog post.

I have been out of the coun­try for a very long time, that I have lost count already. My pass­port has been abused and harassed numer­ous times, that I think that abuse might turn into an enjoy­ment. One do won­der, do the custom’s offi­cers enjoyed spank­ing the on the visitor’s pass­ports when they embark into the coun­try.

Here I am, in Welling­ton, New Zealand. I must say, I have met a lot of peo­ple from all over the world, From Argenti­na, to Brazil right up to New Zealand.

I could say that I can’t wait to get back to Malaysia, back to my not so clos­et self, back to all the hyp­o­crit­i­cal peo­ple, back to all that polit­i­cal bull­shits. Yes, I have been fol­low­ing the Per­ak by-elec­tions, and I can tell you, I think these idiots should just do the world a favor, and bury them­selves. The news on The Star’s news site tick­led my fun­ny bone. Now, I know it is a strong fash­ion state­ment, but do we real­ly get fined for wear­ing a skirt nowa­days? Zang Toi should not be allowed to have out­lets in Malaysia, then, if they are going to fine for RM20. What was that for? A fash­ion state­ment? Or a show of pow­er? Per­haps, in bet­ter words, a show of stu­pid­i­ty and being a closed mind­ed gov­ern­ment?

Just when I bought a pair of Jim­my Choo’s 5 inch heels that I thought would be a fuck­ing good fash­ion state­ment. Now I am not too sure if I should be walk­ing down to Pavil­ion, with a pair of heels that the female species are so dying for. Yes, I wore heels.

On a not too recent stud­ies, Mr Yik Koon Teh in a paper wrote that tran­sex­u­als can­not be explained by social fac­tors. While we all under­stand that the Mus­lims enforced the pro­hi­bi­tion of trans­gen­ders, but why are the rul­ings enforced to those, who are not Mus­lims?

In school, we were brain washed by the Malaysian edu­ca­tion sys­tem that Malaysia is a mul­tira­cial coun­try, and that Islam, is the offi­cial reli­gion. I believe many still have that in their school books. Alas, ‘lead­ers’ these days tells us, Malaysia is a Mus­lim coun­try, and that we, as a Malaysian, should fol­low what Mus­lim coun­tries do.

Per­haps that is the main rea­son why I want­ed to leave Malaysia so bad­ly. Not that I feel that the oth­er coun­tries would be bet­ter, but a more rather, ‘not so much bull­shit’.

I am tired, star­ing at my Mac­book Pro isn’t going to get me sleepy at all. I should rest, a lot if stuffs wait­ing for me in the morn­ing.

Oh, I do think that Malaysia is the the most clos­et case of all in terms of sex­u­al­i­ty. Come out from the clos­et already, will you?

      @cyrus,

      You haven read about me writ­ing and ‘con­demn­ing’ my own coun­try yet. What I wrote was just a mere wake up call, so that I do not need to throw away my pair of heels.
