نحن قوم أعزنا الله بالإسلام ، فهما طلبنا العزة بغيره ، أذلنا الله

We are the people whom Allah honoured through Islam, so whenever we seek honour other than it, Allah will disgrace us.

The last few days

The last few days have been rather full of events.

Thursday 18 Oct:
My first on-duty slot. Cannot go outside the 20km radius from the refinery.

Friday 19 Oct:
Family came from JB. Could not join them to KL, since I was on duty.

Saturday 20 Oct:
Could not leave PD because I was on duty. Missed one open house in Bangi, but went to another one in PD, hosted by a KMB-Bristol mate. Caught up with few friends overthere.

Sunday 21:
Managed to find someone to pass the pager to. Went to one open house in Bangi. The house was like an andalucian abode. Must be inspired by alhambra architecture. Went to the friend's house whose Open House I missed the day before.

Monday 22:
Start of the Essentials of Refining course, organised by Shell Open University. My first time of joining such courses, and at an exaggerated price tag also (EU2100). Took good walk around the infamous Bintang Walk. What a lousy place.

Wednesday 24:
End of course (evening). Twisted my left ankle on the way to KL sentral from the monorail station nearby, due to uneven floor surface. Twisted the same ankle again while going down the stairs near KL sentral platform 6.

Thursday 25:
Back to work. Another day of the 'safety day 2'. Had some discussion, and made few confession on breaching the safety rules around the refinery. Oh the start of my 50-day fasting debt.

Friday 26:
Had the safety day closing ceremony, attended by representative from the local fire station, together with some big bosses from SHELL. The regional manufacturing boss and the global safety boss came to give their speech and bla bla bla...

Saturday 27:
Went to few open houses. Spent good part of the hours doing some work and watching/supervising some repair/project work.

Sunday 28:
Received an early text from a friend, apparently one of our friend's son had passed away. He was involved in an accident. Saddened by the news, infuriated when informed that he was hit by few drunkards, a drink and drive and kill case.

Honestly, there are few things that I discovered over the weekends that really angered me.

1) Two policemen got shot, and were not protected by Kevlar. All of the sudden, money came from sky (PakLah's Office), RM150m for the equipment purchasing and whatnots.

Question:
Where is the money all these while? Don't tell me that it actually literally falls from the sky.
MY conclusion:
It is somewhere, accessible to some blokes, who maybe use it for their own benefit. Borrow it for a while, put in fixed deposit, unit trust, shares etc, until a certain period. Comes the call, return the money. Sadly, life lost is irreversible.
Note: 1% profit from RM150m is already Rm1.5m.

2) What does the law state about Drink & Drive?
I believe, not many people know, and maybe the drunkard will get away with 5 or 10 years. Of all we know, they might get away, because crime was committed when they were subconscious. Well, they were consciously consuming, and I would say consciously driving. I belive, the drunk drivers are killers, and killers should all go under the gillotine. FULL STOP. unless forgiven by the victim's family.

3) What does it mean by being a Malaysian
There's so much history and tradition to the country. However, we are damn good in retaining the bad ones, and eliminating the good ones. Look how unfriendly we had become, so much of being masyarakat malaysia yang penyayang. With the crime rates and free sex in the country, I really doubt we are still the community we once were.

On the other hand, corruption remains at the same level (if not worst). I just could not ignore all these.

Conclusion:
Being a malaysian means you are being stupid or pretending to be dumb, so that you can just ge on with life (like me).

4) Anwar not co-operating with the government body in the investigation of the video tapes.
Anwar is very much reluctant ni surrendering the original tape of the CM appointment set-up clip. If I were him, I would have done the same thing. Why should I surrender the criminal evidence to the crooks? Happenned to him once (Umi Hafilda-related--> therefore Adult material), and he is determined not to let the same thing happen again.

Conclusion:
Where is Justice? Nothing you can really hope much for on the malaysian soil. May as well stay away from the boundary and enjoy life from the outside like the malaysianthinktanklondon.

the last para on the corruption illustrates the dire exasperation of the writer and mine.

God hates the corruptors, and no helps will be offered in akhirat...kesian diorang. Or do they simply not believe in akhirat? Lagilah kesian...
