Toys for the Merdeka Season

Was thinking of proposing the following sets of toys for Merdeka day to Hasbro..will make good gifts this Merdeka season..Maybe the Mangkuk "BPN" Sniper Blogs by KJ can use this to play and get some points into their thick skulls of theirs.

FRU 'All Season Protest' Policemen Collector's Set
Comes complete with water cannons, small bombs, 30 FRU trucks, a Black Maria and 30,000 protestors. Colours of protestors are customizable to black, red or yellow. Comes free with a complimentary mini 30 protestor set- "Pewaris", with its own marching music and police escort.Add RM 10 for link-armed line of Pakatan leaders.Water for water cannons sold separately.

The 'Kg Buah Pala' Cowboy Town 1 Dollhouse Set

Comes complete with little cows,29 collectible houses,and a Darshan Singh figurine.When pressed, the Darshan Singh figurine will say project a cute gurgly, incomprehensible sound .Also comes with alternative action heroes/villians - Hindraf Hunk, Sugu the Slug,Tharma the Thug and Victor the Dictator.

Mini Court 'Buat Kerja Judiciary' Set

A majestic collector's edition replica Jalan Duta court complex complete with cracks and uneven car park and Palace of Justice scale model.Comes with 'Buat Kerja' banner.To be included next fall in this collection is VK Lingam plush doll that says three phrases when pressed "Correct...correct...correct your head". "Looks like me and sounds like me, am I me?" and "Yo Mama so Fat, she cannot fit in this court".
The VK Lingam doll comes with 3 camouflages, but they all looks and sounds like VK.Judges sold separately.

SUK Selangor 'Under Siege' Set

Four piece building set comprising Dewan Jubli Emas, Anexxe, Bangunan SSAAS and DUN Selangor.Latest addition to this set is an audio ready yelling band of hooligans wearing miniature 'Bukan UMNO' T shirts.Also included is a cool cow with detachable head.Police officer figurines available but are immovable deadcast iron and for ornamental purposes only.
Loh Gwo Burne Edition Commemorative Camera
Would make an excellent gift to kids who are interested in photography.It comes preloaded with the actual photos taken by YB Loh and a handwritten manual by him on how to trap corrupt lawyers.Batteries and judges sold separately.
Teach your kids gardening skills and patriotism with this gardening toolkit. Learn valuable lessons about nature, and if planted strategically, this small tree would maybe some day shelter a state assembly sitting.Comes in Casuarina,Dedap and Langsuir.Comes with its own pot and fill-in-your-name plaque.
But then again, if they could think, they would not be doing what they do, right? :P

A Nice Weekend

The long weekend turned out to be a pretty nice one after all.On Thursday night, met up with Shakir after the longest time, seeing he now can drive, after his freakish albeit comedic mishap (he tried to scratch his um, back, and somehow dislocated his arm). Met Prasad as well, my comrade from PAS and exchanged a lot good natured ribbing and news, mostly about the venerable Dr Hasan Ali.We had dinner with YB Charles, who has a thing for the nasi lemak below his service center, and another thing for Dr Hasan :P
Friday was even more eventful, went to the workshop with Danny whose car got into an accident, and left him wrapped up like a herbal wantan thanks to mummy-wrap and a skillful Chinese singseh.Had tea with him and YB Ronnie and YB Kit, who never fails to amaze me with his sharp-mindedness, and met up with Mandy and her very cute nephew. Listened to YB Teng and Khalid with their awesome jokes about BeEnd.
Then went and drank to Dr Hasan's health at Modesto's with Danny and Adrian. Spent Saturday and Sunday movie-ing,arcade gaming, drinking, eating, sushi-ing,DOTA-ing,photographing and finally talk-cocking at Tze Wei's impromptu farewell where I met Robert,Shin, Christine and Tze Wei, and the topics of cock-talk ranged from Jesus to MENJ to the Oxford Movement and priesthood, to apostolic succession to libertarianism to the Chinese press and whatever else bangau topic that could be fitted in a two and a half hour window.A nice way to end a parade free,nearly flag free, black wearing weekend.

The Merdeka Post

Merdeka came and went, and I felt nearly no whiff of patriotism in the air, at least the way BN makes out patriotism to be.To the current government's mindset, patriotism means the total absence of dissent, the total presence of undying, undivided loyalty to them, the utmost subservience to their agenda and the total swallowing of their propaganda.A loyal nationalist.
I feel pretty much the opposite. I feel like a rebel with a cause, and a pretty good one at that. The cause is the democratic replacement of the present government with a more competent, statesmanlike, transparent, fair and moderate government.And if that makes me less patriotic in the present governments eyes, then I happily shall remain so.Because the way I see it, Jose Rizal was not exactly 'Spanish-Patriotic', neither was Gandhi nor or Tunku Abdul Rahman 'British-Patriotic' Not that we are comparing ourselves with such legends of the past,but to highlight the fact remaining- that not all dissents are bad, nor not all forms of loyalty; good.
Ultimately, we all serve history in our own little way.Some grandfathers alive today tell of how the war forced them to eat tapioca, and some, as I learnt from my new friend Christine last night,forced them to create entire new families while abandoning their old.Some fighters remaining tell of how the fought alongside the British, and yet some, against them.Ultimately, history is written by the winners, and as such, we are fed with a steady diet of 'Perikatan' comprising MCA,MIC and UMNO did A-Z for Merdeka to happen.
So, 50 years from now, I'll be 75.It still remains to be seen whether I'll be reading about Pakatan taking over the government anywhere in Sejarah,but I will be able to tell my kids, I got sprayed with rubber pellets and chemically enhanced water more than a few times in our struggle. Whether I will be able to do so while saying I am a nationalist, or a 'negative, anti governmental element' , depends on the results of the coming elections.
