the last couple of weeks have been quite an eventful time for malaysia. malaysian politics specifically. first dr m - once regarded as mahafiraun among some quarters, the big numero uno of umno not long ago -for 22 years!!- did his ultimate sulking trick and resigned from umno. oh but....if dollah B gets kicked out of umno he'll come back in though. i think that was the funniest thing in the world. i put it in a very stark way ...i think he's been er...fucked in the ass for a bit longer than he can take and decided that's it. but no it's not that's it. he may be out of umno but he's thinking of nothing but umno. poor man. what's the expression? what comes around must comes around. the ultimate insult of course already came quite a while back when he couldn't even get nominated by his own bahagian to attend his own party convention! hishamuddin rais once coined the expression "kubang pasu-ed"... which means basically you' put in a very stark way... fucked in the ass big time.

that gets me to my second point. this ezam fellow. he was once a most devoted desciple of anwar ibrahim. a very vehement critic of umno. claimed to have lorry loads of evidence of corruption on some umno big wigs. and willing to suffer detention under ISA for it. which he did for about one year with hishamudin rais among one of his illustrious company. but recently we heard that he has rejoined umno.

i personally don't really care what ezzam does with his life but being a leader of men (and women) and being a fairly visible politician , one would expect some consistency in his shall we say 'struggle' . but no, he's just another weakling. i'm mildly dissapointed and pity his admirers and followers. and there were a few of his admirers who seemed fit to follow his step! what retards! the the only expression that fits this guy is this. an asshole. and to continue the thread from my previous post (lust, caution) this is another reason why i'll never ever sacrifice anything let alone die for my country! it's not worth spilling blood for leaders like this asshole. and boy do we have plenty of bastards like these.

anybody with the brain size of an average monkey will see through this guy and will never buy whatever reasons he said for rejoining umno. and it's an insult to an average man's (and woman's) intelligence to listen to him jabbering rubbish about fighting corruption within umno! what an asshole. the fucker is just weak. that's all. he must have been-to put it in a very stark way- really fucked in the ass by anwar ibrahim ( i don't mean it literally of course) for him to get so sore and had such a fall out with anwar and PKR. he must have such bile and hatred for anwar that this is the only and ultimate way to get back at anwar and fuck him in the ass. (to put it in a stark way)- and i mean it metphaorically only of course. and oh by the way, an interesting snippet from susan loone's blog....apparently ezam have been bragging a few things to hishamudin rais during their detention

According to Ezam (as told to Isham), there are three boxes full photos and a video tape of Altantuya Shariibuu shopping with Dotty (aka Rosmah Mansor, wife of Najib Tun Razak)

we can safely say goodbye to all that and the other lorry load of interesting corruption 'evidence ' now. that's for sure. anyway you can read the rest of the post here. but but enough of that. not worth more than a couple of paragraphs to discuss a flea.
which brings me to my third and bigger bigger point. about this batu putih thing. we get a couple of rocks that can be visible only during low tide and singapore (the flea on world stage) gets batu putih. and our dear minister considers this a win-win situation! what a cunt! this is the funniest comment i ever heard from our dear politicians for a long time. which reminds me of that story about these two guys who bragged about their dicks. one of them said i have the biggest dick of all! and the second said but i have the longest (pubic) hair of all! what cunts! we can call the first guy singapore and the one with long hair malaysia.

i never give much thought about this batu putih but then i saw the map in utusan malaysia. batu putih is just a pissing distance away from the tip of johor but a whole 43 kilometers away from singapore. and my thought is...well, to put it in a stark way, we've been fucked in the ass again by singapore....sometimes when i think about our dear politicians, specifically unmo politicians it reminds me of a painting called a ship of fools by heironymus bosch, that 15th century netherlandish painter who specialised in phantasmagorial scenes of hell . i actually was fotunate enough to have seen this in the louvre a few years back and it surprised me somewhat of how small it is.

it aptly describe our sad human condition which is nicely put in the description of the painting here.

In The Ship of Fools Bosch is imagining that the whole of mankind is voyaging through the seas of time on a ship, a small ship, that is representative of humanity. Sadly, every one of the representatives is a fool. This is how we live, says Bosch--we eat, drink, flirt, cheat, play silly games, pursue unattainable objectives. Meanwhile our ship drifts aimlessly and we never reach the harbour. The fools are not the irreligious, since promiment among them are a monk and a nun, but they are all those who live ``in stupidity''. ....

lust, caution

i always find it extraordinary to what length some people are willing to sacrifice themselves for their country.i must be a real bastard because i will not go to any length , not even an inch for my country. i'll never shed any blood, neither mine nor others for my country. am i a coward? am i a bad person for not willing to die for my country? does it mean i don't love my country?

i am unable to answer these questions . when i think of all those idealistic people who are incarcerated, often in solitary confinement, endure excruciating torture or even death for the sake of their country and belief , the first thing that come to my mind is , is it worth it? you die for your country , but for what? just so that people that are probably a hundred times worse than you to continue to live?

what lead me thinking along this line is because i've recently (and finally) get to watch lust, caution. i said 'finally' because i actually bought a copy of the dvd from those pirates when this film first came out but the english translation must have been done by a certified madman. it was completely gibberish and did not make any sense.only much later that i get to buy the dvd with the original english translation. and i got this uncensored version from my favorite tom's dvd in beijing . which surprised me a bit as i thought the chinese banned this movie.

quite understandable with the dour chinese government which wants to control everything .as you know, it's a controversial ang lee film based on a short story by eileen chang, a writer who is completely unknown to me. most people want to see this film because they want to watch the famous chinese actor tony leung having real and torrid sex with the first time actress wei tang who played an innocent theatre actress involved in the amateurish plan to kill a chinese collaborator (tony leung) to japanese occupation force . if this is what you're after, you won't be dissapointed . it's not exactly a five star straight out porn but you'll get to view tony leung's balls swinging every which way during the sex scene . but the film is much much more than that.

it's a study on how far you're willing to sacrifice yourself for an idealism. in this case the poor girl had to sacrifice her body but, oh how complicated things can become! still, despite all the dark and sombre mood, there's one funny and revealing moment where after one steamy love scene the first sentence uttered by wei tang's characher was ' get me an apartment'... isn't that typical of many women! it's true that many women will open their legs for all kinds of reasons apart from love and giving yourself for your country sounds like a very noble thing to do. but does she have a choice?

my feeling is, it's not idealism that compel some people to do certain things but they simply find themselves in a position where they can not do other wise. take those suicide bombers for example. why do they kill themselves? many of these unfortunate people are no more idealistic than you or me. but they find themselves in a position that blowing themselves is the only option they have. they have no choice.but is this really so? in many cases it's nothing more than a matter of perspectives.

so, hedonists are probably right afterall...lighten up, have fun!
