Of Potatoes, Nouri Al-Maliki And Khalid Ibrahim

The Selangor MB fiasco is taking on a bizarre turn with the man at the center of the farce being the potato himself.

The MB issue is a very simple one.

When the party to which you belonged had nominated you for the post in the first place and put you in the MB seat now wanted you out and have in fact expelled you for not toeing party line, you leave gracefully.

That is all to it. You leave to allow someone else be nominated in your place.

Khalid has only brought ignominy and discredit to himself by insisting on holding on to the post at all costs.

That reminds me of Nouri Al-Maliki who had insisted on staying on as the Prime Minister of Iraq even as his country burns and his party colleagues no longer supported him.

In the case of Al-Maliki, it seemed that he had insisted on hanging on to save his own skin.

We hope Khalid is not trying to hang on for the same reason.

But it will be hard to disabuse voters from thinking otherwise, especially after the multi-million Ringgit bank suit against him. And his shameless insistence on hanging on, even to the extent of sacking two third of his exco and going on the bareback 4 to continue.

We all love potatoes.

But not one that thinks it is more than a tuber.

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...
