Flood, and Malaysian flood typically is an annual event. By normal convention, it occurs annually around December. Thus it is very discouraging to know that our great leaders puts thier priority above the nation's needs.
Of course, it will not be complete if this post does not highlight Najib's "Rakyat didahulukan, pencapaian diuatamakan" is now proven as mere rhetorics. When the nation is facing one of the biggest and worst floods in years, he opted to spend his holidays in Hawaii in the company of Obama.
First, it is not wrong to play golf with Obama but the timing is off cue. Najib conveniently put the nation at the back of his mind and how can he claim that his thoughts is with the rakyat when playing golf? Come on! Any golfer will claim that the state of mind is most important when playing golf. You cannot shut off your minds from the pains and sufferings of the people just to go for golf diplomacy.
In fact, Obama will respect Najib more if Najib opted to pass the golf over his nation. He did not do that and after heavy criticm from the rakyat, Najib "reluctantly" return home. Too late...
Anwar Ibrahim fare no better. Anwar may claim that he is not the Pm and he is not in position to direct the agencies. But he forgets...as the opposition leader, his words carry weight. He did not utilise that...and he lost out a golden opportunity to prove that he is the Rakyat's man...
Worse for Anwar, it triggers a new question...
The vacation photograph sees him riding a mountain bike. Now, I am not going to talk about flood but a different approach. Is it not Anwar who we see walks ever so slowly up the stairs to deliver speeches. Is it not this same Anwar who some Doctors claim has bad back and could not perform on bed?
If this is the same Anwar, then explain to me how can he ride the rough terrain of mountain biking? Or is this a mirage of sorts?
2015 is here... and I am back... Rustic to a point but will be we3ll greased and oiled soon :)
Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
