Democracy Is Not Dead

Today marks the his­to­ry for Malaysians as results of the Malaysian Gen­er­al Elec­tions are made offi­cial.

The first mes­sage I got after my 18 hour flight from Malaysia was Barisan Nation­al won the Gen­er­al Elec­tion by 133 par­lia­men­tary seats. It also marks it as the dirt­i­est elec­tion in Malaysi­a’s elec­toral his­to­ry.

It sad­dens me that we as Malaysians are not fight­ing for the right cause. We want cheap­er cars and cheap­er petrol, do you know how much more cars are we going to put on the road if that hap­pens?

Why isn’t Malaysian’s pub­lic trans­porta­tion up to par to our neigh­bor­ing coun­tries? Could it be because Mahathir was busy chan­nel­ing funds into his pet projects like Per­wa­ja and Pro­ton?

Playing Pranks

It was first of April and I could have known bet­ter; I got pranked.

Seth hand­ed me the finan­cial report. I almost crapped myself out when I looked at the expen­di­ture and I was 250% over the bud­get. That said expen­di­ture was allo­cat­ed as my per­son­al expens­es.

Seth does not han­dle the finan­cial records, but as my per­son­al assis­tant, he does hand me in the reports from the finance depart­ment. Calls to the finance depart­ment went unan­swered and dad called me on the phone to asked about it. Dad does­n’t usu­al­ly look at the com­pa­ny finances report, lest that he called all the way from Sin­ga­pore.

Lonely

I woke up in the morn­ing today to find out that I was alone at home. I made my way to the kitchen to make myself some break­fast; there was some left­over from last night.

While break­fast was being heat­ed up, some left­over meat­balls and spaghet­ti, I was hav­ing that weird feel­ing of being alone.

I put on some movies and tried to con­cen­trate, I can’t. Lunch time came, and the same thing hap­pen. Cooked myself lunch, tried to sit in front of that giant LCD TV that I bought myself, but I still could not con­cen­trate with what is going on on the TV.

Din­ner was the same, this time I gave up try­ing to put some­thing on the TV, and just stuffed my face with the food.

I had not logged in to my Face­book, my Twit­ter was left dor­mant. It’s not that I pur­pose­ly did that. More like when I want­ed to tweet about some­thing, no one replied to me, and I find it rather depress­ing.
