In Bolehland Even God Can

 "Boleh" is Malay for "Can or can do"

Religion is supposed to be a very special divine connection between your creator and you.

But the ways adherents practise their faith, give the impression that god is not only painfully parochial but also, more frighteningly, woefully vengeful.

If you are nor for my god, then you are against my god and you deserve everything coming to you for your folly.

However, every religion teaches that god is all merciful, loving, compassionate and almighty. And that all creations belong to god.

Which seems all so very pat or confusing or both, (if not actually hypocritical) depending on who does what and to whom, in the name of god.

Because, even if you believe in the same god, but I don't think you believe in the same way I believe in the same god, then I don't see that you believe in or practise the same faith, or believe in the same god. You become, by my perception, an apostate.

And I am divinely obligated to defend my god to call and treat you accordingly. Though there be but one god and god is merciful and compassionate and everything and everyone is god's own creation.

So, the world has seen. and continues to see, same faith and same religion adherents killing each other in the name of their religion and their god.

So sad.

So tragic.

If not ungodly.

In Bolehland, while the rest of the world may be laughing at us, we have even copy-righted god's name.

Like god has been become a product.

And we are so proud of our piety.

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...
