I was determined to write about meaningful and thoughtful matters. Matters that would add value to anyone who cared to read my little notes about how I view things, about my perspectives.
So I began reading voraciously again, trying to be inspired by current issues and by what other people had to say about things that is happening in this country, this world.
However, I find it rather difficult to be inspired, as other than the usual stuff that this blog has already covered (and I happen to agree with Ai's opinions on most things she wrote here - other than the personal stuff, I mean) I find most of the things trending currently either distasteful or beyond my range of comprehension and I would rather not opine on something I lack understanding of.
I mean, the whole point of writing things down here is so that I can avoid repeating myself, although sometimes I do it anyway, but what is done is done.
There is no lacking of complaints, of wanting everything cheap, everything free and delusions that the government is rich enough to subsidise your living from womb to grave.
I think the whole BR1M (KR1M, TR1M, PR1M, and whatever 1M freebies) idea was stupid from the very beginning as not only was it a gross misuse of public funds, it also perpetuates the "gimme, gimme, gimme more" attitude of the mental midgets, but my opinion wasn't asked so I won't waste time on it.
Then the Allah issue, to me it is just an excuse to provoke a reaction from the majority Malays, as it is really kind of weird why they insisted on a mistranslation of a word used in a language which their priests hardly use in their everyday lives that they don't even know that God translates to Tuhan in Bahasa Melayu/Bahasa Malaysia.
Two things I hate most is repeating myself and spouting something I have no understanding of, so I am laying off the details of the "Allah" arguments. And talking about something that you lack understanding of is just stupid, while repeating something that someone else said without verifying its validity or understanding its context is plain moronic.
I doubt that they will lay off the subject, however, and these mental midgets will continue to provoke the majority with their biadap behaviour - demanding the majority to be mindful of their sensitivities while they have no obligation to reciprocate, in fact they are blatantly trampling all over the sensitivities of the majority Malay Muslims, provoking their reaction.
Furthermore, nowadays it is just about kangkung. Since we get our kangkung from the backyard, along with the various other pucuk ubi, keledek, bayam and labu that my sister has in her vegetable patch, the highs and lows of kangkung prices mean very little to us.
Now, if you want to inspire me about vegetables, talk about bell peppers, or zucchini, or maybe artichokes - those are veggies we can't grow in our backyard.
