Robert's LAUsy Sunday!

Gandhi-lauboh!”  No no, I wasn’t calling out for Gandhi’s mom. It was just one of those swearing Sundays I woke up to… gandhi-lauboh-ing every time I read about how our tax monies were being used to fish for votes in another By Buy-Election!

Honestly, I have no qualms about politicians pledging our tax monies for flood mitigation projects or assisting some schools but do we always have to wait for some elected YB reps to get ‘tapao-ed’ and really gone YB (yonder below) first before such financial aid comes around to these deserving needy situations?

The night before, I went to bed feeling disgusted and as sore as Saifool’s ass when I read that even the churches were not spared in their last minute Buy-election shopping spree!

By dangling a RM1.7 million carrot in grants, what were they expecting my 'Yeh-Soh hengdais(brothers in Christ) in Sibu, Sarawak do on polling day? Vote against their conscience and integrity because Santa in WonderBolehland promised them goodies if they be 'good’?

If you asked me, for insulting the integrity of my religion, my revulsive reaction would have made me do otherwise and also mark the ballot paper in this manner (see pic below) as a hint of my unhappiness...

....hmmm that would have made the ballot counting process that night a little more religious when counting agents start exclaiming “OMG! Jesus Christ!"  hahahaha!( Just kidding nia...I would not want to risk my ballot getting rejected for putting anything else other than an 'X' on it...LOL!)

Having uncomfortably placed in such an awkward position with the integrity of the church at stake, I would not be surprised if the sermon on that Sunday polling morning went funny like this …

"Folks, the subject of my sermon this morning is on Christian integrity and honesty.

How many of you here this morning have read the 69th Chapter of Mathew?"

and when hands in the congregation were raised....

"You are just the folks I want to preach to before you go to the polling station today,"

"There ain`t no 69th Chapter of Mathew!."

Anyway, right from the very second I jumped out of bed I got my eyes practically 'glued' to my monitor following the polling day events from live.
For me, it was far more exciting than watching the Thomas Cup live telecast games and God must have heard my silent prayer masked beneath all my 'gandhi-lauboh' was indeed Robert's LAUsy Sunday... he lost and  WE WON!

Exodus 23:8
And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted
and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.

Happy "Niamah' Day!

Oh no! I didn’t die of starvation living on just salads and neither was I sick nor losing interest in this blog. On the contrary, the reason for my inconsistency in 9pek9bo-ing here lately is all because I 'got rejuvenated' and have been kept busy, catching up with so many things in life that I was missing.

And no, I didn't get to be like that guy in the movie 17 again, but I did get back enough energy and spirit to rediscover the enthusiasm in life once again and even managed to drag my old butt out of the four walls of my abode more frequently.. Have been checking out all the activities I have been missing one by one...I am all fired up! Get ready world, here comes the Mambo-9pek9bo ! (errr...I mean as soon as I find my Latin ballroom!)

I even started and done a few weekly postings on this new web log I created for the DAP Air Itam Community here- 

As I look back now, I bless the day I gave up and handed all my worries and woes to my YEH_SO kor. When I said I had to ‘LET GO’ and LET GOD’, I really did just that! Now, except for my slightly wrong size pants which tends to fall off because of my slimmer shape (ahem!), most things in my life are slowly falling back to place! Amen!

In fact, successfully shedding 6 kg of unwanted stubborn fats has brought me so much joy that I feel like throwing a kenduri feast to celebrate!  But then again, doesn’t that idea of fattening my friends with a feast to celebrate my success in losing weight seem greatly evil on my part? That would be advocating the selfish thought of not only must I succeed, but others must fail, isn't it? hahaha!

Anyway, It's Mother’s Day…so here is wishing all those wonderful loving mothers, a very HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Though sadly, I do not have my mom here anymore to celebrate this special day.. but what I’ll be doing tomorrow will be something that she would be happy to know from wherever she is now because it was through her coaxing and suggestion that I started volunteering my service and became a 'Rocketeer' almost 30 years ago!

Come tomorrow, I will be joining my comrades once again just like in the past few weeks…

volunteering our service in the streets...........

at the night market ........

......and yo! at the mall too, as volunteers for the JOM DAFTAR UNDI drive!......Urging and getting those young eligible Malaysian citizens to register as voters so that they can collectively make this country a better place for everyone! 

So guys, if you are 21 and above, Malaysian citizen and have yet to register... Don't miss this opportunity to register to make your voice counts. Let's kickass through the ballot box! 
(err...believe me, they don't count how many kanninehs, niamahs and diuniasengs you can muster, but just the ballot votes on polling day!)
