Heaven and Hell

According to government sources, the difference between a hunger strike and fasting is: Heaven and Hell jail.

That’s what I can deduce from the fasting month and yesterday’s arrests. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Oh people, please don’t burn candles too. Don’t go about the night with one (especially around those candlelight vigils), use a torchlight instead and preferably with rechargeable batteries. Our government is VERY committed to saving the environment.

Politics; the limerick

What is politics but a game
A game where every mind becomes lame,

Every politician lies,
So everyone else cries
And yet they played on all the same.

Perak’s Black Thursday

Today is a sad day to be a Malaysian. As a journalism student who is supposed to be good in writing, I find myself in an awkward position: I am lost for words. Maybe that’s why I am still a student.

My expansive vocabulary is of no use. Even a thesaurus is no help. All attempts to describe how I feel about what transpired in Perak came up short.




Understatements, all of it.

The executive is unchecked. The judiciary is delusioned. The legislative is emasculated and more recently, subjugated. The constitution has been tampered and trampled.

The three estates (four, if you include the media) are now one. Who are our guardians now? And who watches the watcher?

But as Adam Kokesh would say:

“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”

The fight to revive democracy shall continue. And let today’s event be forever be whispered and be remembered, the horrors of absolute power.


The above is not a call to arms. There are other, often better, ways to resist BN’s tyranny.
