26th Jan, Monday (first day of  CNY)

Woke up at noon coz I was online chatting with friends till 2am. I would like to write something about a particular person I chatted with. This person didn’t come back to Sitiawan to celebrate CNY but was in KL. This person was having a war with mosquitoes while chatting. hahaha 😛 Can anyone guess who is that warrior which fight off the city’s mosquitoes? 😛

Around 4pm, Rajivanna, Sailesh and Karam Singh came to my house. They came by bicycle and motorcycle. (they were my bicycle kakis when we were scouts, I’ll write more on that in my other post) Raji told lots of stories about his college life in Taylors. Karam too had some stories to share, he was down with food poisoning in Teluk Rubiah NS camp, which made headlines in the locals dailies. 😛

Went to ACS OPA CNY gathering at night. That ends my first day of CNY.

27th Jan, Tuesday (second day of CNY)

Woke up at noon again. Went to Hock Qiang Association CNY gathering. Planned to go ‘bai nian’ with Timothy and gang but there were ‘kucing and anjing’ around Sitiawan. What’s the meaning? It’s was raining cats and dogs. So we had to postponed our plan. What a boring day…

28th Jan, Wednesday (third day of CNY)

Woke up slightly earlier than previous days. 🙂 It’s becoz me and my friends had planned to go ‘bai nian’ in the afternoon. Tai Wen and Hwa Wei came in motor first, then Aaron, then Michelle and Vivian, then Lord Prashan The Great (LPTG). LPTG also stands for something else, only few of us know about it. hahaha 😛 We waited for some time and here comes my friendsssss in 2 cars. They’re Chieng, Pith Hang, Chuen Jien & Swee Chen (4 of them were so lucky to be chosen for NS), Keng Loon, Chin Siang, Hoe Sieng, Duing Yew, Pei Fan, Yong En. Then, went to Mr Ong’s new house, Fang Meei’s house, Choy Hoon’s house, Clara’s house, Mdm Cheang’s house. In the process of so- called ang pows’ hunting, we were joined by Sher Lee and Choy Hoon. hahaha 😛 Actually CNY is not all about ang pows right, it’s about the fun of meeting up with friends. Btw, I have not seen Choy Hoon and Clara like for years, I guess, and am happy to see them once again.  

At night planned to watch Bedtime Stories, but tak jadi. So, changed plan, I went Yam Cha with Pith Hang, Kai Xian, Keng Loon, Chuen Jien, Sher Lee, Swee Chen, Michelle, Hoe Sieng, Aaron, Junyan (Secret Recipe’s boss’ son) at MissU Cafe. Then went to McD to meet up with Aryati. I was surprised (actually not so) when I saw someone else (Zulfaez) was in the her car too. hahaha ;P Then went to Teluk Batik around 11 something. Saw people playing firecrackers. I didn’t got the chance to touch any firecrackers this CNY. Maybe I think that i’m too old to play. hahaha 😀 Home sweet home at 12 something. On the way back, I saw a Kancil with 5 fellas at the backseat. Fulamak!

29th Jan, Thursday (fourth day of CNY)

Was to go to Pantai Remis for DAP CNY gathering but I chose not to go. Went out for lunch at Ayamas with LPTG, Teck Hing, Pith Hang, Tai Wen, Kai Xian, See Chew. I got to know that Teck Hing is going to KDU to do A-levels for 40k. Hmmm, it’s a big sum of money though.

Then I went to Timothy’s house to pick him and Justin. Went to Sien Son’s house to pick him. Went to Megan’s house, Clinton’s house and picked him up. Head to Mr. Ong’s new house again. Stories started. Timothy asked whether does he know that his tuition students cheated him of his tuition fees. He said he knew but nevermind he forgives them. He said something really make sense in a funny way “next time when his students asked why their baby lahir tanpa punggung (Mr. Ong all time favourite quote), then they’ll realise that it’s because they had cheated Mr.Ong.” Bear in mind, when we did something wrong, we have to face the consequences. We were trying to give suggestion to him on how to overcome the problem. He said it’s a waste of time if he should collect the fees one after another, like what I had in my Physic’s tuition. Super wasting time man. Then went to Wen Wei’s house and toured around his house. Wen Wei tagged along. (So how many souls are there in my Kancil now? Do some Maths here. There are 6 altogether. 1 lesser than the Kancil I had earlier mentioned.)  Later, went to Xiao Juan’s house to disturb her from doing her homework and had some “chor dai dee”. hahaha 😛 Don’t know what is it? Then u must see the Red colour shirt which I wore to the Youth CNY gathering. Then went over to Delia’s house. Then to Ruth’s house. We chatted and the guys spilled some beans and I managed to ‘korek’ some of their secrets. hahaha 😛 Ruth’s house was the last house. So, as a dedicated and responsible chaffeur, I had to drive the guys back. Stayed at home for the night.

30th Jan, Friday (fifth day of CNY)

Was to go to Ipoh but chose to stay at home. Chieng, You Luen, Tai Wen, Nicholas came to find me but I was still in my dreamland. I returned call to Chieng as he had called me while I was still sleeping. They went to Old Town White Coffee (new addition to the Manjung’s many many franchise outlets). They asked me to meet them at Giant but I couldn’t find them, so I went to KFC to have my lunch. While I was having my lunch, they came in and chatted for awhile. They came at the right time as I can’t finish my cup of Pepsi so they had some sip of it. hahaha 😀

Then I went to pick up Timothy, Vivian and Kristie to buy some food and drinks for the Youth CNY gathering. We went to Econsave. After all the shopping are done, sent Vivian and Kristie back home. Then went to pick up Clinton then went to Megan’s house to pick up Justin. Then went to Chuan Sheng’s house, Aunty Pauline’s house where we ‘kill two birds with one stone’ because Aunty Audrey was there too. hahaha 😛 Then went to pump petrol at the Shell petrol station in Giant. I found out that the nozzle is very user-friendly and there is no petrol odour too. Then went to Hwa Wei’s house. We had some planning on the activities can be done in Youth there, We planned to have one day trip to anywhere and they are also very ambitious on wanting to do a Youth Musical this year. They said if I were to stay back for Form6, they will give their all for the musical. Woah, they have a lot of confidence in me huh. Yeah, I think we should have Youth Musical after it has been absence for a couple of years.

Then we went for steamboat in simpang dua/simpang tiga. I don’t know how to differentiate them. It was a pleasure and luxury to have hot food on a rainy night. On the night, we stuffed ourselve with loads and loads of fish balls and meat balls. To be honest I ate really really full. I didn’t have to pay a single sen for all these because they wanna belanja me for being their chaffeur for the past two days. Thanks very much Timothy, Clinton and Justin. 😀

People who had sacrificed their time and energy to make this event a success are Megan, Kristie, Vivian, Timothy (preparing the food and drinks & washing the cups and other stuffs), Justin (ice breaker and games), Hwa Wei, Aaron, Tai Wen, Wang Keat, Chuan Sheng (lucky draw), Ivy and Charles (CNY song, Gong Xi Gong Xi), Daryl (photographer) and not forgetting the worship team led by Delia.

1st Feb, Sunday (seventh day of CNY)

Went to church for Sunday Service. Then my family and I sent my sister back to Shah Alam. This was the second time I drove to KL. The first time I was driving Unser, this time I was driving Estima. hehehe 😀 Went to Klang Parade before we headed to Shah Alam. Then came back to this town call Sitiawan.

That’s the seven days of my CNY. Lots of driving, eating, and talking with friends. I think no one is comparable with my driving skill now. hahaha 😛

Some comments 

Malaysia’s opposition Thursday refused a royal command to give up control of a northern state where the government says it has seized power, setting the stage for a political crisis.

The Perak state government building has been surrounded by a large police contingent including riot squad, while thousands of opposition supporters held a protest at the chief minister’s residence, eyewitnesses said.

Perak’s royal ruler, Sultan Azlan Shah, earlier Thursday refused the opposition’s request to dissolve the state assembly, after its narrow majority was snatched away with the defection of four lawmakers.

After meeting with deputy premier Najib Razak who said the Barisan Nasional coalition now had the numbers to control the assembly, the sultan asked chief minister Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and his executive council to resign.

If they did not, the posts “are considered vacant,” the official news agency Bernama reported.

But Mohammad Nizar said the Pakatan Rakyat opposition alliance would not leave office, and that he expected police to try to arrest him and remove him from his official residence in the state capital Ipoh.

“I explained to his majesty that following a guidebook that the Perak sultan had written on the monarchy, the sultan should follow my advice as leader of the house to dissolve the assembly,” he told a press conference.

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim appealed for calm, ahead of the protest at the chief minister’s residence where more than 3,000 people had gathered with many more arriving.

“I hope that this situation will not dissolve into violence and that the whole democratic process should be allowed to take its course,” Anwar said.

The crowd chanted “Reform” and “Justice” as they stood in the residence compound which was guarded by security staff in red berets and red t-shirts from the Islamic party PAS, a member of the opposition alliance.

Param Cumaraswamy, a prominent lawyer and former UN special rapporteur, said it would now be extremely difficult for either of the two sides to rule effectively in Perak, and urged the sultan to call fresh elections.

“A constitutional crisis is brewing,” he told AFP.

The opposition won Perak in general elections last March, with 32 seats in the 59-seat assembly against 27 for the Barisan Nasional coalition which rules nationally.

Najib has said that one of the defectors has joined Barisan while the others will be independent but support the government.

Perak is among five states captured by the Pakatan Rakyat in last year’s general elections, along with a third of seats in the national parliament, in its best ever electoral performance.

A victory in Perak would be a major coup for Najib, who is to replace premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi next March, and would boost his credentials within the government which has been in crisis since the 2008 polls.

But analysts have warned it could be an empty victory for Barisan Nasional because voters could see the move as undemocratic and more of the old-style dirty politics that were rejected at the ballot box last year.

I, hereby, as a citizen of Perak Darul Ridzuan, urge all Perakians to show your support to Perak’s Pakatan Rakyat by attending the gathering which is going to be held tonight at Perak Stadium at 7.30pm. Show the Barisan Nasional’s idiots and morons that we had enough of frogs jumping around and be a man with balls to face by-election and let them lose kao-kao (quote from a friend)

“Mohd Nizar tells the press conference that he would not resign from his post as the menteri besar. He urged the people to back his Pakatan government.” – malaysiakini

YB Menteri Besar, you’re the man. This is the first Menteri Besar I met face-to -face even before he was sworn-in as the Menteri Besar. I saw him at the nomination center in Sri Manjung last general election last March. For your infomation, he is the Pasir Panjang ADUN, which is under Lumut constituent. You might wonder how come I was there. That was because I followed my dad, who had to propose Ngeh Koo Ham as the candidate for Sitiawan’s DUN. I used to like politics and talks politics thingy with friends, listen to the ‘sermons’ by my all time favourite Sejarah teacher and so on. Recently, Rajivanna told me that his Malaysian Studies’ lecturer is far more pro in giving sermons. Yeah Raji is one of my ‘politics and bola’ kakis.

But to be honest after watching the movie ‘what a girl wants’ in youtube not long ago, somehow I lost interest in politics slightly. No matter what, we know that Perak will only prosper and develop under the Pakatan Rakyat. Barisan Nasional will only bring disaster into this state. Be steadfast and know that God is always with the Pakatan Pakyat’s leaders.

PS: Barisan Nasional, please respect the mandate given by us as Perakians to the Pakatan Rakyat, or else we have to say bye-bye to you and bury you in the next general election.

May God Almighty bless Pakatan Rakyat and Perak.
