Don't wake me up

September is the month when I was born.

September is also the month mentioned prominently in Greenday's hit song, "Wake Me Up When September Ends". And I love this song.

I've planned a trip to Tioman with the boyfriend in the coming September. We'll be flying on 16 September, to be exact. So when I saw this story in the news just now, I couldn't help but think that my trip will be jinxed, in one way or another, politically speaking. I wouldn't want the plane to fall off burning from the sky or anything.


Azmin: Anwar will be PM by Sept 16

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR’s plan to make Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Prime Minister by Sept 16 is still on track, said the party's vice-president Azmin Ali.

The Gombak MP, however, said with the latest allegations hurled against the de facto leader, there was some “slowing down of the process”.

“I spoke last night to the four Barisan Nasional MPs who want to crossover and they said their commitment has not wavered even with the latest fiasco. So far, there is no change. We are still on track,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby.

Deep discussion: Azmin (right) chatting with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz at the Parliament lobby Wednesday.

He said following a rally in Shah Alam on Tuesday night, they would be holding similar gatherings in Penang on Saturday and Kuala Lumpur a day after. He did not dismiss the possibility of street protests.

“Maybe we will use this forum for people to express their anger over what is happening and what is done by the present (Federal Government) leadership,” he said.

Azmin also said they were considering the possibility that the Federal Government might use this as an excuse to crack down on PKR. He denied that Anwar had orchestrated the sodomy accusations himself so as to draw the sympathy of the Malays, as what happened 10 years ago.

He said PKR had enough evidence of the people behind the accusations, adding that PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had handed over proof to the Prime Minister.

In an interview at the lobby, Balik Pulau MP Yusmadi Yusuf called for the suspension of Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan pending investigations into the role they played in allegedly trying to cover up the assault on Anwar in 1998.

Yusmadi, who is from PKR, said the suspension was important as it would have a bearing on the “conduct of the investigations”.



Somehow I wish we can just fast-forward until the day when the whole shitty situation which our country's political situation strips itself off from all the circus acts. How can we allow all these donkeys people in power to fight about their own benefits in public while leaving us to tremble in fear while we think about the future? All these drama and debate over Malay-rights, fuel price increase, corruption, sodo-mee, inflation, mega projects which actually do help ease the people's public transportation woes being shelved and yada yada... I bet our hairlines are receding by the second as we calculate our expenses with the calculator. Not to mention that we Malaysians are really at lost thinking of what the real problem we are left to faced with and how it will ever be resolved.

Come to think about it, I think when time actually does stop until the moment all these circus acts are over, our country will be debt-ridden to the World Bank and we all have to live in poverty. No more gulit-free shopping spree for you and me...
