Barisan A 13-Hued Parrot?

Barisan is a 13-hued Parrot.

When one bird screeches, the others follow and soon it becomes a cacophonous chorus.

It was no surprise then, that the man who was once caught on video committing carnal knowledge of the extra-marital kind and blaming his enemies for his predicament, echoed Najib who had claimed that Malaysia would become bankrupt should the opposition come to power.

If truth be told, this will only happen if the Parrot maintains its 56 year hegemony in Malaysian politics and government.

If the Malaysian economy continues on the model of the cows and condos kind or the submarine, popiah and carpet mould or the crooked bridge to nowhere that got lost (fortunately) in Oxford type.

If kroni-kroni didahulukan (cronies first) policy does not see the end of the day.

If accountability is a Greek word and transparency is a photographic term.

If power means abuse and abuse means self-enrichment.

If the Consolidated Fund is your grandma's bank and Petronas wealth is your grandpa's till.

If the institutions of state are your play things.

If, if all else fails, I tell you 'lu tolong gua, gua tolong lu' (you help me and I'll will you) or to hell with you and I'll do it my way, even if my way is the way to perdition for the country.

If investors are only interested in CAC (Cows and Condos) instead of CAT (Competency, Accountability and Transparency)

Now you see, don't you, parrots know not what they are say.

They will just parrot their parent.

Yasmin Ahmad was arguably Malaysia's best story-teller, filmmaker and advertiser. She was well known for her Petronas commercials and had won numerous international awards including the Golden Lion award for the 'Tan Ming Hong In Love' commercial. Her feature film Sepet not only garnered her several international awards including for Best Asian Film but also drew multi-racial audiences that rarely happens for a local film.

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...
