No body yet | But it's him !

It's May 2 today.

And May the world change.

They got Osama ben Laden. Obama has got Osama !

From the Washington Post:

How will the World change? Who knows? Some new ball game?

PM Najib is supposed to go to the NYSE Stock Exchange and show his face to the world there. Showing it in the mess in Malaysia is hardly any headstart to anything or anywhere. He'll be there to lelong something.

PM David Cameron of Britain wanted to lelong England's forest but that angered the Brits and they quickly killed the plan.

If the plan to sell State land there died, it is resurrected in Sarawak. Taib wants to sell NCR land and the person who has the last say is a Dayak Iban, James Masing, being the Minister of Land Development or more correctly the "Minister of Land Lelong". The new DUN is yet to approve anything so Wong Ho Leng's Shadow Cabinet had better work real hard. Harder than hard, to be heard. Pakatan has only 15 voices against BN's 55 in Council Negri.

So what would the change in the death of Osama to be announced by Obama be?

Is Naib going to lelong Iskandar Johor land? Looks like it's going to be another flop like the rest of their corridors due to natural causes!

All these privatization is a scam.

Without governance in the BN and no FOI and the Press strangled, it's difficult for us to hold them accountable. Then with all the projects under the pretext of privatization it's nothing short of ripoffs. When you can't get info in Parliament can you get anything from their company directors? Though, statutory disclosures do help in some info after all has been railroaded.

The so-called new concept for NCR land is another ripoff.

The O president will definitely get some popular votes now since he's so proudly claiming credit for the job done. Noticed he did not thank the Pakistani govt for their cooperation?
Hmm.. the rosemama might have scolded her pm hubby for not thinking of such a brilliant idea to gain some popular votes - imagine if he had, even the americans will be kissing his feet!

Different kettle of fish lah. Not a military action and it would not be that rosy. Are there black roses?

Obama was given a Nobel Prize which people couldn't understand what for. Maybe he'll deliver for the change he promised.

"...Can [he] bend history in the direction of justice?..."

But the idea of a Black Man at the White House is novel! :)

Even a prince has to postpone his honeymoon for this military action? He might have been asked to get hitched on another day - osama cannot wait or was it obama! What a tongue twister...

This is part of the conclusion of his speech. It is laudable. It had also happened in Egypt. Let's hope governments of the world ponder on it and create a new world.

["...Somewhere today, in the here and now, in the world as it is, a soldier sees he's outgunned, but stands firm to keep the peace. Somewhere today, in this world, a young protestor awaits the brutality of her government, but has the courage to march on. Somewhere today, a mother facing punishing poverty still takes the time to teach her child, scrapes together what few coins she has to send that child to school -- because she believes that a cruel world still has a place for that child's dreams.

Let us live by their example. ..."]

I believe Yanks kept Osama as a bogeyman to keep yankees on a leash. Whenever they want to reduce
personal freedom, just make another major terrorist violence.
As for our Canland...we just need to cut to the
bone n 'rest' a very myopic Bn; at the least,for a term to let them get their bearings back.

Well, they have lots of fun at Halloween time or Ghost Festival!

We have our Orang Minyak[*], or it's curse!

High time royalty takes less precedence, peng. Or the womenfolk will have no rest tending to their needs with all kinds of chores.

As for names, it's total confusion to me.

There is a practice amongst Arabs where father's name is first - as in Abu Baba Ali ... meaning Baba the Father of Ali.

Then there's the 'bin' meaning 'son of' - like you know, John Robertson meaning 'John the son of Robert'. I won't know who you're talking to when you address him as 'Mr Robertson''re talking to the father or the son.

Don't quite know how the Minangs do it as the women are the boss in matriarchy.

Anyway, since you're a little West bias and if you have a son call Tim ... you can call him Tim Pengson! ;)
