Sorry for the silence for quite a while but I had to take stock of what the 2 months had done to my physical as well my mental state before going on to something new. Since I came back I managed to catch up on the local news reading some of the back issues of the papers and talking to friends who are eager to listen to my stories. For me , I am quite surprised to know that the political scene hasn't changed much. The political parties are still at each others' throats instead of getting on with administering the the country as they promised in their election campaign.
After coming back from Cambodia and having visited the 'killing fields' and the Toul Sleng Genocide museum, I am disgusted to read about Tony Blair's coming here to give a lecture on 'The rule of law and good governence'. I can't help but to agree with Tun Mahatir who termed Blair as a war criminal. The 'war' in Iraq has killed more than a million people and everyday Iraqies continue to die, for what ? It took 12 years to finally arrest Radovan Karadzic and he will soon be tried as a war criminal, while here Blair and his friend Bush are walking free and talking about democracy and human rights. And what's wrong with University Malaya?. Grrrr!!
And then you have this guy who claimed to have been sodomised by Anwar. Do you have to wait until you find difficulty to 'pang sai' after several days before you make a police report? I am no supporter of Anwar but think of other ways if you don't like him. Well, Malaysia Boleh.
After staying idle for a week, I went back to my exercise routine yesterday and I must say that I am happy to be able to enjoy doing it. While going out I spoke to a petite young girl in my neighbourhood whom I have seen jogging and working out several times before. To my surprise, she tells me that she is training for the World Wushu competition in China in October. Wow.
She is a student in UTAR .
I am now in he process of viewing all the shots I took during my adventure and hope to be able to share them with you soon. I need to get one of my sons to help me to post it on the blog. I have yet to learn how to do it . All in I took about 2,000 shots but only about 60% are ok. When my first camera' kaput' and I bought a new one, I did not set the camera to the correct settings, so many of the shots are not of the desired quality.
It won't be long before fasting starts and I am thinking of going on a 4x4 into Asli country in Perak for 2-3 days . I make the trip about once a year and I usually take along useable clothes, childrens' toys , books and foodstuff to be distributed. If you have something to contribute please call me at 012 6369227. Better still, if you have a 4x4 you may want to join me .
Only condition is you have to be self sufficient and I can only take 2 vehicles. Be warned that if road conditions are bad ( you don't call it road really) your vehicle will take a lot of beatings. Ask Dr Amir Lee.
Well, that's all for now, Regards.
