Umno In The Last Throes Of Its Life?

Everyone knows that Umno is in the last desperate throes of its life to sustain whatever remaining Malay support it still has when everyone who is anyone in the party, is trying to outdo each other to show that he, and the party by implication, is the champion of the Malays and Islam.

The latest Umno hero is none other than the "I am a Malay first" DPM Muhyiddin Yassin.

Pity that he was so too eager to jump into the fray without first ascertaining the facts, and therefore exposing his naked ambition to also perhaps go for the Umno presidency himself ?

Umno knows that it has lost the Malay support.

And that it needs to do whatever it can to regain the Malay support they had taken for granted.

The fact is that more Malays had voted for the opposition than for Umno in Ge13.

But of course, Umno won't admit this.

So it turns its attention to trying to demonise the Chinese and making bogeymen of them.

Pity again (for the 60 + year old dinosaur Umno) that our Malay brethren are not biting the bait anymore.

For, despite all the provocations and attempts to pit the races against each other, Umno has failed miserably to elicit the hoped for response.

Umno's desperate brand of survivalist politics is inimical not only to themselves but also, more importantly, to the nation.

Instead of speaking rationally and trying to bring the races together, Umno, it seems, is more interested to use race as platform to remain in power.

But a desperado can't be expected to be rational, can it?


When someone says that
He is Malay
Or Indian
Or
 Chinese
Or Kadazan
Or
Dusun

Say
I am too
When they ask
How is That
Possible
Say
My blood 
Is 
Not 
Yellow 
Or 
Brown
Or Black
Just 
Like Yours
Is 
Not

When someone says
That 
You are 
Pendatang
I am 
Not

Say
We
All are
If you are a believer
Say
We
All come
From
The One
If you are not a believer
Say
We
All come
From 
The
Stars
We
Are All Stardust

When someone says
I am
Privileged
By 
Law

Say
We
All are
Privileged
By
The Law
Of 
Life

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...
