Castaway

I am taking time off from work at the moment, taking it easy away from the office.  Where I am now, internet access is lousy, or it could be because I am now using Celcom Broadband service.

It is not the best there is, and I must say that I dread calling up the Celcom Call Centre.  There is nothing I hate more than being put on hold forever with the most annoying recorded messages and finally being told by the same recorded voice that all their service reps were busy before being cut off, has to be the greatest torture of all times.

I am convinced Celcom Call Centre must be the lousiest call centre service in the entire universe.  I hate having to call Celcom Call Centre, hence after two severe nightmarish calls which ended up being told "All our services personnel are busy" and was cut off, I have never called them ever again.

Anyways, being cut off from practically everything once a while is good.  I know that the Menteris Besar of Selangor and Johor are being sworn in today, the new cabinet will be announced tomorrow and we'll be getting a new IGP too.  I am far keener to see how our police force will perform under the new leadership than who will be the new federal ministers.

I doubt there would be much change to the way Selangor is run, so I can't be bothered really.  All I can say is, that Azmin is really as hard up to become the Selangor Menteri Besar as Anwar is to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia.  Two of a kind, really.

Johor is getting a new Menteri Besar, and I bet there will be huge changes happening in Kota Iskandar in the next few months.  I am not going to comment on that either as I think the Johor Civil Service will also be undergoing some major reshuffle to accommodate the new administrative style.

I do have some friends in Kota Iskandar, and I do hear all the stories of the "over excited youngsters", but since I have no interest whatsoever in the subject, I am not going to waste time on it.  Different people have different ways of running things, so changes are expected.  The key would be the magnitude of changes and the resulting outcome.

So that is as much as I am going to comment on it.  Besides, politics are beginning to bore me as things are getting too repetitive and there is nothing particularly new to analyse.

Since internet access is crappy here, I may not be writing as often as before in the next couple of weeks, and will not be very active in the comments section.  Beside, having a life means I have less to gripe about, other than Celcom Call Centre that is.

So it is good, I think, to slow down for a while and focus on more important things such as being healthy physically, emotionally and mentally.

PS:  And after reading rockybru, apanama, hantulaut and freddie, all I can say is - this uncle has become unhinged and those who heed his call to go to the streets need their heads examined.

    1. Anwar is Tamil17 May 2013 at 15:33

      If you mean Anwar Ibrahim - well he is not Malay!

      His father speaks perfect Tamil. Because he is Tamil! His mother tongue is also Tamil. Its strange isnt it. You dont get Anwar introducing his father or mother unlike most Malay politicians.

      Neither do Mahathir or Zambry Kader. They are all Indians hehehe..

      And if you mean the other guy is Haris Ibrahim, just google Thuraisingham Haris Ibrahim. Yes bro, sorry to disappoint you. All these are not Malays...unsigh.. They are klings_on...

      Typical Indian deviousness..masquerading and lying every which way..

    1. Thank you Anon, I share your hopes for things settling down. Things are great down here, where I am, quieter than what I am used to, but I am enjoying the work-free days as much as I can before I have to join the rat race again.

    2. A Malay Success Story17 May 2013 at 16:19

      We all deserve our rest. The solid Malay support for UMNO testify to our success in wakening the sleeping Malays.

      A toast to us all!
