Will There Be A Tsunami Big Enough To Sweep Away A Kleptocratic Nightmare?

A right royal exposition is that there is no need to change the ship just because the captain is not up to the mark.

Be that as it may be, Bolehlanders beg to differ. The Bolehland ship is broken and beyond repair. If Bolehlanders don't vote to change the ship, not just the captain, they sink with it.

The trouble is the decades-long myth perpetuated that the Malays will disappear from the face of the earth without dUMNO to forestall the tragedy.

The myth has embedded so deep in the psyche of the average Malay voter that is it hard to imagine its dislodgement anytime soon. This, coupled with the advantage of incumbency, and the easy and shamless abuse of it - the last minute  constituency malapportionment and delineation exercises to be undertaken just before elections begin, the eleventh hour de-registration of Parti Pribumi, the rush to push through legislation against 'fake news' designed to discourage truth from being told (if truth be told haha), the shameless faith in the power of 'cash is king' and the alacrity to further the creed, et al, means that change may just be an elusive animal.

But if the Malays as a voting block do not awake to go for change, Bolehland might well be heading for a fate worse than the Titanic's.

That will be a sad and tragic denouncement to all the hopes and fear.

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...
