Najib's Graveyard Silence Is Eerie!

Normally, when someone accuses us of something that is untrue, we get all hot under the collar and we threaten to sue.

This is normal human behaviour, otherwise people may think that there is basis to the accusation.

So, Najib's silence in the face of Deepak's various revelations against him and his family is eerie!

What is even more puzzling is that his ministers are not trying to climb over each other   fall over each other to defend their taiko (boss).

Usually, whenever there is the slightest hint of a scandal involving their boss, Barsian, and especially Umno, ministers will come out in droves to try to outdo each other in defending their hero.

This is not done so much as to defend truth against perfidy, as to be noticed as to who is the loudest in defending their beleaguered leader and to hopefully cement and secure further their position in party and pantry.

But what usually comes out is one minister parroting what the other minister has said.

This parrot culture started and took hold during Mahathir's tenure. Today, parrots are not only to be found in the pet shops but also in the corroding corridors of power.

Strangely, this time around, the parrots are all silent. Not even a single solitary squeak (or it it squawk?) to be heard. I do hope that this is the end of the parrot culture in Barisan politics.

But I think I do hope in vain. Today's ministerial silence may just be the un-normal exception. For whatever reason or reasons.

Najib cannot just bury his face head in the sand like the ostrich. We can forgive the bird, for that is its nature.

We cannot do the same for Najib, for he is a not a bird the last time I checked.

Or is he?

Malaysians may have a short  memory, but the international business community is watching.

We cannot have a prime minister who carries with him such a weighted baggage, whose weight and content are not explained.

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...
