In Bolehland, All Is C And B

In Bolehland, it is all 'C and B'

For example, when the weatherman tells you that 'hari in cerah' (the day is bright or fine), it is advisable for you not to forget the umbrella unless you don't mind being drenched.

When he tells you 'hujan dijangka turun' [ rain is expected (to fall) ], smile, it is going to be a fine day, not a rainy and gloomy one as forecast.

Or when they promise that water rationing will be a thing of the past, then, right on cue there is water 'disruption' When you call them about it, they tell you 'paip bocor' (burst pipes) 

But burst pipes don't conveniently happen at the same time period on consecutive days!

Just like when they tell Bolehlanders that money from the supposedly strategic sovereign fund 1MDB had been repatriated from the Caymans, the repatriation turned out to be anything but strategic.

The cash that was supposed to have been repatriated, somehow mysteriously morphed into 'units' of indeterminate nature that had even the bankers struggling to understand what those really were.

Or when they tell you that 1MDB is fine because its assets exceed its liabilities, they aren't able to this day to satisfactorily explain to Bolehlanders why the fund is struggling to even meet its financial obligations to the banks.

Or when they tell you that the now infamous 2.6 billion Ringgit said to have been deposited into the Pm's personal account was an Arabian contribution given in appreciation of the Pm's fight against the ISIS, they don't let know that at the time the 'contribution' was said to have been deposited into his personal account sometime in 2013, nobody then had even heard of the terrorist group!

Unless, of course they are telling you that the Pm was just prescient and had already started the 'fight' against the terrorists when everyone else, including buddy Obama, was sleeping.

Or remind you that when ISIS eventually burst into the world's attention, the Pm was the one leader who was heard publicly lauding them. It was only later, when caught with his pants down, that the Pm recanted.

So much for the Arabian tale of an appreciation.

Or when they talk of unity, they mean divide and rule.

While they call the Bolehland Chinese all sorts of names and tell them to balik tongsan, they conveniently and shamelessly embrace the Mainland Chinese with open arms to help bail out 1MDB by buying out the IPPs.

In Bolehland, all is C and B.

 That - to the discerning - refers to cocks and bulls.

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...
