Najib And His Constant Need To Stay In The Limelight

Pm Najib has constantly been working to keep his profile high and make himself relevant to Malaysians. Why he does this without let, nobody really knows.
The Star 15 Nov 2012

After all, he is the PM and every Malaysian should know him, whether he advertises himself or not, shouldn't we?

But if Najib hopes that by doing so, he could also uplift Umno's tattered image, he is sorely mistaken because despite all his efforts, a Merdeka Center survey had showed that Umno's popularity is in the low 40% and even Najib's has plunged 10% from 60 plus to 50 plus%.

Najib's latest stunt is to be seen with a group of youngsters in a supposed brainstorming session to come up with creative ideas to solve problems. Very innovative indeed.

But Malaysians know that at the end of the day, it is all sound bytes without bite. Good for a photo opportunity though.

Najib came out with the 1Malaysia slogan as soon as he took over the premiership from Abdullah Badawi.

But no sooner than he could properly deliver his first-born, the poor babe was given a bad kick in the back by none other than the Pm's trusted deputy who famously or infamously (depending on how or who looks at it) declared that he (the deputy himself) was firstly, a Malay and only secondly a Malaysian.

But, not wanting to throw away the still-born with the bathtub, Najib nevertheless persisted in spawning more half breeds in One this and One that.

So, today, we have 1Kedai, 1Klinik and IBRIM and what have you.

Najib even thought to come up with a A Jib Gor (Cantonese for Big Brother Najib) facebook to connect with the Chinese Malaysians, more and more of whom are fed up with Najib's administration.

So it was not surprising that some smart aleck had called the A Jib Gor facebook  "Ah Cheap Gor" facebook, and maybe they are correct?

They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Unfortunately with Najib, one can't even be certain if the pudding is in the pud - whatever that means?

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

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...
