Malaysia to ban Facebook

Some­times you ought to owe it to the Malaysian gov­ern­ment when some­thing as hilar­i­ous as this hap­pens; to make our Mon­day blues dis­ap­pear.

I won­der what is it this time. Could it be because of [Alviss Kong’s sui­cide note](http://www.cedricang.com/personal/alviss-kong-suicide-note-20101209/ “Alviss Kong Sui­cide note”) that now the gov­ern­ment is afraid of more copy­cats emerg­ing and express­ing their feel­ings on Face­book before the attempt to cause griev­ous hurt to them­selves or was it because of the recent uncov­ered slan­der that put Malaysia in the world head­line. Should we all be scream­ing cov­er up now?

The Allah issue

It is always weird that I can only find time to write when I am being strapped on a chair.

Right now, I am about 5,000 feet above sea lev­el enroute to Kuala Lumpur from Bali, Indone­sia. I can’t move because I am at the win­dow seat, and there is noth­ing to see out­side beside some lights, per­haps from Sin­ga­pore or some­thing.

I had a chance to catch the Sun­day ser­vice when I was in Bali. Despite hav­ing a great night out at Kla­pa with Max Glaz­er, I was real­ly well awake dur­ing wor­ship.

Allah? Isn’t that what they say is the ‘prop­er­ty’ of Islam, and no one but the mus­lims can use it? It was a famil­iar song that I know, but it was sang in Bahasa Indone­sia, with Allah the only word that I under­stand; is this the Allah the Allah that I know? Or did I just hear some­thing wrong­ly.

You see, back in Malaysia, some­one could have been behead­ed if was found using the word Allah. Well, not that bad but at least some­one decid­ed that it was cool to torch down some church, to show that Allah belongs to them.

Some went over the extreme, per­haps to cre­ate some ten­sion between the Chris­tians, and torch some suraus. They could not reach the mosque, because those places would have been heav­i­ly guard­ed, no?

Human beings are always like that, I felt. Why are we so fast in claim­ing some cer­tain prop­er­ties as being ours when it is a well known fact that it isn’t?

I don’t under­stand.

Boy that needs porn

I am irked by this cer­tain indi­vid­ual that has a long fam­i­ly his­to­ry of incest.

On the oth­er hand, I have also noticed a slight increase of read­ers to my blog, and this is not from the search engine. While I am not sure what is going on, I hope the new read­ers would enjoy read­ing, and per­haps more com­ments. (It is weird that I have only 0.1% of my read­ers com­ment­ing)

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.

A random visitor, Part 2

I kin­da like this Part 1 and Part 2 thing. It kin­da makes the blog inter­est­ing like a TV series where at the end of the show you get a “To be Con­tin­ued” thing­gy.

Back to the sub­ject, and to recap what hap­pen.

Yes­ter­day, I saw a stream of vis­i­tors com­ing in from [this source](http://canteenculture.blogspot.com). It was point­ing to my post, [Spit or Swallow](http://www.cedricang.com/a/contemporary/spit-or-swallow-20071127/) and short­ly after that, he removed his email on the site, his Mul­ti­ply link and his post.

Well, Of course I have the ten­da­cy to save up every­thing inter­est­ing that I see on the net, just in case peo­ple remove them, like this case for exam­ple.
