Holy Mackerel! This Is No Turkey!

It is fast becoming difficult for, if not dishonest of, us to claim that Bolehland is a moderate country.

If things go on the way it seems, we soon won't even be able to say that we are a conservative nation. We will have to be honest and admit that we are more like a country run by the Taliban.

Voices of intolerance are getting more and more strident each day with racial and religious bigots running free.

Even the divine's name is proscribed, so that non-Muslims who utter it run foul of the law.

Now, even turkeys need to be halal.

It is my ignorance, I admit, that I have not heard of kosher turkeys until now.

We have heard of pork being non-halal. Because we have been constantly reminded of it.

But kosher turkeys?

Okay, the bird needs to be slaughtered according to specified rituals to be considered halal.

Still, why can't they allow non-kosher turkeys to be imported and tagged as non-halal so that Muslims know what is what and nobody is offended.

This is the Christmas season.

Without turkeys what is Christmas?

Here's wishing all who celebrate Christmas and also all who don't:-

Merry X'mas & A Happy New Year!

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...
