Saved by ...hopes


First thing i did when i got to my sis' place last friday was hit the bed and tried to sleep. That was easy considering that i was having a fever and i hadn't sleep well for the past 2 weeks. For the next 18 hours, I was in my own world - it feels like my kind of heaven for a while.

I was too distraught of what happened in Perak because i believed all this while in the high integrity and knowledge of the royal family - the last bastion of royal conscience in our Ibupertiwi. I, like many others, was fooled. For all the right notes spoken lately on how this country should be managed, i wonder what went wrong in their thick head (apparently). Was it the prospect of making big bucks through WCE and NCER, for instance? Was it a blackmail? What would be the effect to our judiciary system - would they be strong enough to handle Ir. Nizar's suits against you-know-who? I wish i could write more about my thought-provoking opinions on raja melayu but nanti Si Botak AlBlur keluar order ISA to 'protect' me..how la...

Alhamdullilah, Chu and family spent 2 nights at our place. I, also known as the chief cook of the abode, had to fine tune (twice) the taste of her foods being served throughout their stay with us - symptom of a worried, broken heart shutting all her senses. I told Pak Busu that I am nursing a fever resulted from the Perak debacle (yes, i am THAT emotional).

He got one great advice for me : save yourself from ulcer and gastric (like me, he would get these when he's stressed up with our politics). The world is too much for us to worry about but never lose hope that one day, justice will prevail. Always take comfort that when you go home everyday, you go back to your family and loved ones who share the same values you wish this nation is built on. Let's spread these good values, not merely by talking, writing about them, most importantly, live the values. Some people nowadays think they are holier-than-thou as they have performed the fardhu ain yet their fardhu kifayah is often neglected, since their fardhu ain gives them no benefits whatsoever for them to act justly, conscientiously, humanely as the khalifah in their family, organisation and community.

Pak Busu has many opportunities to treat politicians, and of course, only B(e)N(d) politikus can afford endless visits to Island Hospital. He told that sometimes these politikus look so frail in health yet when it comes to politics, they had enough energy to show how despicable their actions could be, sucked to the corrupted system they (and their generations) need to survive - materially (how sad).

p.s. i got my first gastric in 1998 - on the day i queued to get into the court for DSAI's hearing and the worst gastric attack i ever had was a week before GE12. It's always politics but hey, i'm not complaining. In fact, i thank Allah for that experience - when you know the nikmat of makan and tidur - simply.

I can say I am recuperating now. What i thought could be THE END (of course the end is nigh for B(e)n(d)) , the recent turmoil in Perak injects much rigours and spirits to my soul, thanks to Pak Busu for allowing me to see the blessing in disguise.

Indeed, i am saved by the hopes for a better me, a better family, a better community and a better Ibupertiwi.

Come to think how badly affected i was with the turmoil, i wonder how Ir Nizar and his family are holding up to this. Being a good face (and body language) reader, I know he's as strong as ever. He's indeed the politician to watch as commended by Anil Netto. May Allah bless him and his family always, as always. With B(e)N(d) getting so desperate, you can guess what kind of things they could do to these politicians who stand for us.

p.s. I think it's pure BULLSHIT if PKR wants us to think that this crisis happened after their ADUN were 'kidnapped' by B(e)N(d). What a sad tactic trying to make us pity those trojan horses. I wish Pakatan Rakyat will screen their reps - thoroughly. Like doctors and lawyers, we should allow only the reliable and capable people to represent and save our lives!

I always live with 'hopes' as well .... and of course, coupled with some 'efforts'. Never underestimate the power of writing - I'm already convinced by your views ... :)

Yes bro, hopes will die if no efforts are being done. Thanks for being a change agent. Who say we need to be a politician to change this world kan? ;)

Dear Hidayat, i wish i could do platform hopping too - nothing's easy in this life and we are surrounded by Alam Semesta Ciptaan Allah, don't you think it makes us feel closer to him and other human beings?

:) yes, my soulmate (who has passed on to the other side of this world) said that im sadist because i take pleasures in pains and hardships. No pain no gain right? Take care bro...
