If UMNO has arrived at such pathetic level, why don't they just dissolve and let the members join PAS. At this stage, it would be more advantageous to PAS if UMNO was to join PAS rather than the other way round. PAS in fact has a lot more to lose whereas UMNO doesn't. Reason being, PAS has worked so hard through the years to build a great amount of goodwill with the non-Malays. Any such move to accept UMNO's proposal will undoubtedly create a perception amongst the non-Malays that Malays, whether PAS or UMNO, cannot be trusted. I know PAS will not want to commit 'hara kiri' by teaming up with UMNO, but it is always better to remember the line, "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread".

I wonder whether Najib has instructed his Foreign Affairs Ministry, or the Malaysian High Commission in London to inform the UK government that there should be no display of crosses or crucifixes, nor the singing of Christian hymns due to the presence of their Majesties. It is a great surprise that people like Ibrahim Ali, Yusri Mohamed of PEMBELA and the enlightened Mufti of Perak did not make an issue out of this event. Food for thought, though.

After blaming the Chinese, DAP, the Christians, for posing as threats to the nation, this Ibrahim Ali fella now points his finger at, of all the people, the Malayan Communist Party. Read the Malaysian Insider article here. Well this seems to be the flavour of the month now.
Quite frankly, this guy never failed to amaze me with his warped thinking. The COMMUNISTS???? Please-lah Ibrahim, use your otak for once. Chin Peng is now almost 90 years old. How old do you think his comrades would be to carry on the fight, a cause that is already lost. I doubt they could even carry a cherry gun, let alone a rifle. Furthermore, how many are left in Chin Peng's age group to think of starting another revolution. The excitement would probably kill them first than anything else. So, Ibrahim, after the communists, any body else left in that paranoid brain of yours?
I wonder whether he ever stop to think for a moment, that it would be plausible that Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, during his visit here on April 27 2011, have planted some of his communist moles here to cause unrest amongst Malaysians. Maybe this will help to stir his imagination,
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on his recent visit to Malaysia
Many of my friends must have noticed that there were no postings from me last week. As a matter of fact, I was away undergoing surgery of my two eyes that involved lens implant/cataract removal, and this is something I would like to share with you, especially those having eye problems. The results of the surgery were amazing. Prior to the surgery, the images were like viewing those from RTM TV shows that use analogue signals. After the surgery, the images were crystal clear, sharp and bright. It was almost like you are watching ASTRO Beyond HD quality. Every thing around me was so much 'alive'. However, the most noticeable part was, it was a painless operations and the eyes could be used immediately after the operations except it would be covered with a plastic transparent eye shield to prevent accidental knocks or scratchings. Unlike similar operations done else where, I did not experience blood shot eyes either. The actual operations lasted only 15 minutes done under LA conditions.
Well, my thanks should actually go to Dr Choong Yee Fong, who performed the surgery and is one of the heads at ISEC or International Specialist Eye Centre located at Mid Valley in Kuala Lumpur. Dr Choong is no doubt one of the most affable doctors I have ever come across. During the entire operations, he was very assuring and even kept me informed on the going-ons in the operating room.
The staff at ISEC is another matter worth mentioning. From the moment you check in for your check ups until your departure after the operations, credit must be given to their excellent services. I was even pleasantly surprised when on my subsequent follow up visits, some of the staff were already addressing me by my first name. You just cannot help but feel nice about the reception.
The fees may be a little pricey, but I guess for the type of service provided, it is money worth spending.
For you information, ISEC caters for the following treatment:
- Cornea & Anterior Segment
