I admit that my hand is tight with so many thing hence blogging has become a seldom/occasional/rare past time writings rather that a stimulating platform to churn new ideas or share my personal opinion on what's happening around me.
Furthermore, I have becoming more and more obsessed with Twitter, a more direct, articulate 140 characterize statement which is more real time and easy to handle; just the tip of my fingers. I am not giving any excuses here coz i also do compose new blog entry via my blackberry but frankly speaking, blogging could take some of your time and my saying of time; means a lot! I have this kind of slight compulsive disorder; which means i read every line of my para, make sure there is no typo and i'll make sure i'll use the right word in whatever context message I want to convey to my audience. Yes, you can simply say, i am a half freak! (check how many mistake I intentionally left out!)
Having said that, I still love writing.. in fact, I used to have this dream of becoming a writer myself. hahah. Maybe I can make fun of myself and let other ppl have a laugh of me. Till then... let me be just the simple me.
Anyway, the past week have been quite a hectic yet memorable one. My sista wedding reception was held last Saturday and yours truly was the man behind the event. Yup.. I'm the man who will be held responsible if the majlis went wrong. Alhamdulilah, there are few hiccups here and there but the lesser it is, the few go unnoticed. Thanks to the great helps from the ppl around me in particular my love ones who always fresh with new ideas for the wedding. Fyi, the badges, the guest book, the programme , the tags are all her ideas and i m one who executed it with perfection of course. :) We had great time serving the guests and we do hope the guests were joy in return. For me, organising an event is always challenging but the most satisfying part is when all your plan worked accordingly. That would make your day.

Arsenal is back at its best. Having unbeaten run in 4 competition is good for the lads. Hoping some consistency to bring back glory to the Gunners. I hope Arsene knows best is really a fruitful bet and I do hope he will bring in some backup in this January transfer window to add depth to the squad.

Malaysia never fade away when it comes to politics. Just about we are going to prepare for upcoming 13 GE which will be a 'do or die' battle between BN and PR, we are shocked with the death of another assemblymen. On top of that one assemblyman was disqualified as ADUN so it will make 3 by-election coming in your way. The Sarawak State Election is also coming; so what you could expect from both end?! More politicking, more character assasination, more political spin and in the end the rightly deserved rakyat who were left to decide their fate..
Malaysia ku oh Malaysia.

It was a top 10 trending topic for today on twitter when PM @najibrazak offered an opening to 'seluruh rakyat Malaysia' a chance to ask him question on twitter. By hashtag #tanyanajib; you can ask him your question and suddenly it created a chaotic trend in twitterville or widely known as twitterjaya in M'sian twitter context.
Without regarding who actually behind @najibrazak responding or collecting data from the trend topic, the line which should have been opened only for 1 and half hour until now keep receiving questions non-stop. This kind of trend #tanyanajib or #ask(name) have been quite famous amongst celebrity and sportsmen to engage directly with their fans and indeed by doing so, PM @najibrazak was trying hard to make all Malaysians inclusive in a 2 way communication.
I could not stop laughing/worrying and maybe cried at some of the questions being ask; from asking what is he having for tea? to asking not to give any visa to JB on his upcoming concert in Malaysia. Some of the questions look boring and stupid but some look intellectual and sophisticated. Yet some used the platform to engulfed into a words of war zone towards PM and his wife. This somehow reflect who and what Malaysians are made today.
Ignoring the questions which for me are rather academics. (And I dont think PM @najibrazak will go every question verbatimly). The trending topic actually is a way for Najib himself and the team to collect more data about the pattern of Malaysians.
IMHO I can conclude the findings after observing the trending on #tanyanajib into few points.
1. Malaysians are rather stupid or ignorant
2. Malaysians are only interested in gossiping or personal attacks
3. Malaysians are very funny people or should i say happy go lucky
4. Race sensitivity is much of issue need to be taken seriously
5. Malaysians under 21 is yet ready to vote
6. Malaysians are less substance only talk
7. Malaysians don't understand the meaning of patriotic
8. Many more..
9. Najib wont be calling GE anytime soon until he rectify most common thing grudged by the people.
If most of the point corectly pointing to most Malaysians, I can simply say these odds people who simply 'pandai cakap' wont be the first in line to defend the country if any conflict occurred, they would rather run away and talk from a distance.
What can we say more about Malaysians, we have lost our soul to the man who sold the world. All because our own immaturity when we were given opportunity in due course.
Malaysia Boleh?! no i think it's a dumb dumb Malaysia!
