Dictators, Oppressors And Rats

As Gaddafi's days are coming to a close, the image of a rat scurrying in hiding comes to mind.

The irony is that Gaddafi had the cheeks to call Libyans rats.

The image of another rat, Iraq's Saddam Hussein, hauled out of a rat-hole also comes to mind. Saddam was finally hanged and spat on in the process.

Both of them oppressed and terrorised their own people, lived in indecent luxury and thought that their days would never end.

But that they do should be a stark reminder to the dictators and oppressors, who are still a dime-a-dozen,  that they are not gods.

The image of Syria's Bashar Asad sending tanks against his own people (reminiscent of Gaddafi's sending his air force to strafe his) and blaming foreign agents and local thugs for the people's uprising also comes to mind.

And the fact that dictators and oppressors are still aplenty in these days and age is a sad indictment of the human race and their madness for power and capacity for evil and greed.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
