Weekend's Cheer

These days, I will click “Showbiz” first whenever I surf TMI. Yes, it’s better to read about what’s happening in Hollywood, first thing first, than reading our Bolehwood news.

Wednesday came with a bang. It was Cheer Up Keanu [Reeves] Day and The Guardian came up with an article about his new book, “Ode to Happiness” (Keanu is melancholically hot!). Ever lovely and talented Natalie Portman had a baby boy (I must watch “Black Swan”) while Uncle Heff was dumped by his 60-year-old-younger fiancée 5 days before their supposedly big day (and he’s cool about it).

Ingatkan panas sampai ke petang, rupanya hujan di tengahari (I thought it would be sunny till the end but it rained in the afternoon).

As support for Bersih 2.0 gains momentum, so does the opposition from people of all walks like Deputy What-IGP, Muh-what Yassin, Ib-what Ali, Ah-what-Maslan and Yadim’s YDP. And suddenly, YB KJ wants to call for a gathering for UMNO Youth on the same day ‘to strengthen the democratic system’ (whatever is that supposed to mean, YB!). Thank y’all for unintended publicities in BeNd MSM. Sure heboh!

Not that I have nothing to do (women never run short of things to do, guys!) but I want to make Bersih 2.0 a success. So, for coming weeks to Bersih 2.0, I will write on some info on successful protests, the do’s and don’t’s, suggestions to ‘calm down’ our Men in Blue (Tita Cory and inspiring ‘kaum wanita’ in Tahrir Square , thanks for some heads up!), etc.

In the meantime, let me share with you this weekend’s cheer. It’s about a successful rescue of 3.5 m- whale stranded on the beach of Mabul Island, in Semporna’s water. The whale could be dead – just like the one stranded in 2006 – but thanks to urgent and concerted efforts from public community, resort staff and tourists, it resurfaced twice, as if giving out signs to its heroes that it is thankful and glad to be back to where it really belongs, before disappearing.

What a perfect antidote to Anti-Bersih 2.0 and another great weekend. Happy weekend y’all!

p.s. I'm delighted to know that Bindi Irwin stars in Free Willy : Escape from Pirate's Cove. You go Girl!

Hi Uncle Lee! Its more like finding the clues in Hollywood, as "life imitates art far more than art imitates life" (Oscar Wilde). And i'm sarcastic these days (as if i wasn't before;P). Reading our local news makes me crazy. How I wish those 'local script writers' could learn a thing or two from Hollywood, Bollywood and even more from my fave Rajnikanth's Kollywood!

Have a pleasant week Uncle Lee.

p.s. Hopefully Rajinikanth is getting better.
