Whatever You Might Think Of The Chinese Ambassador's Visit To Chinatown (Petaling Street).......

Whether you thought that the Chinese ambassador's visit to Petaling Street and his comments that China was against terrorism, extremism and race discrimination amounted to interfering in the affairs of Bolehland, that visit was telling.

It was telling that it took a foreign envoy to put a stop to a threatened riot against the Petaling Street Chinese traders.

It was telling that that showed up Ah Jib's administration as not in control or,  worse still, as being complicit?

Never in the history of Bolehland since Independence, has a Bolehland government of the day been held in high disdain by the people.

And the blame must fall squarely on the shoulders of the Pm for his weak and wishy washy leadership.

One that seems to believe more in buying support (BR1M to the people and 'donations' to duMNo division leaders and those who would be his willing lackeys) than conviction on his own abilities.

Not surprising when you consider that it seems that money is king in his philosophy.

Not surprising if you thought that the Pm would rather talk than do work - the former of which, in most Bolehlanders' honest opinion, he does rather very well, no thank you.

Not surprising if you consider that the Pm favours blind loyalty than capable ministers in his Cabinet.

Not surprising too, if you consider the kind of baggage with which he came into office - being suspected of involvement, rightly or wrongly, in the Altantuya case and the Scorpene submarine kickback scandal.

Now, with allegations of corruption and money laundering involving 1MDB funds and the half or so dozen ongoing international investigations into the matter, the going has only got more slippery for the Pm and the Malaysian government he heads and made life more uncertain and difficult for Bolehlanders as the economy stutters and the value of the Ringgit nose dives while the cost of living hits the roof.

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...
