Something's Rotten in the Corridors of Putrajaya

The silence is deafening too.

I cant quite place it but there's this sudden urge to register myself as a voter to make a DIFFERENCE.

That will pass.

Afterall, I'm a fat cat, non marginalized non Bumi, who makes a living from the system. Why rock the boat?

I can survive for the lifetime I remain. Screw the future generations. Its their problem. I've mine.

Funny though, how the bouyancy of the stock market has little correlation with real life and real feelings. Just 10 years ago, our happiness indicator was the KLCI. Apparently, institution money controls over 70% of the market as compared to when small punters contributed up to 90% of market transactions in the mid 90s.

And I always thought an institution is a congregation of many small time time investors. Silly me.

The other thing I dont get is, important people fighting over pennies. May toll hikes continue afterall we can afford it. Our official inflation indicator is low compared to others. Our purchasing power is theoretically greater than our neighbours.

Just the other day, I made a booking for a car. I tell you its really affordable. The salesman was telling me not to blink, not to stop and think. 9 year finance is available for up to 90% of the value. He went on to mention that if you default, its OK. It becomes the finance company's problem.

Its easier buying a car than a house. We're so lucky that we can afford many cars as compared to our poor neighbours. I mean, How to Drive a House around?

I also consider myself lucky as my parents had the ability to get into debt to send me abroad for education. Lucky because the debt is their problem. Imagine if I studied locally, my dad would have all the excess money and start screwing around.

Hmmm, he did anyway.

But because I'm smarter now, I also realized its acceptable for men to do so in this blessed country of ours. If you dont, you're either gay or a cyclist.

Getting back to the point of this post. "Whats's Happening, Mr. PM?".

Should I stay or should I go?

A Babe Of Very Little Brain said...

if you go, i'll go with you. if you stay, i will ask you to marry me (and you better say yes!)

sicko said...

maddie, you hafta keep reminding me of our age.

p.waffles, not all gay are cyclists but all cyclists are gay.

a babe, i cant lose either way then.

Dear sic6sense,

Btw,where the heck is our PM? During the early phase of the flood in Johor; there were photos of KJ visiting victims.

I am wondering what is the guy's real occupation? Assistant PM? How does he feed his wife?


Rgds,

i am sooooo waiting for pantani's 2nd cousins response to this.

sicko said...

kna, his wife looks well fed. :D. The PM has more important stuff to attend to like officiating the opening of the KL "Eye".

islanda, dis post is too long for him.

Malaysia is a great country to live in. The only thing we don't have here is decent footballers.

forget about voting. u r lucky to be eligible after registering in 2020.

u alr contributing more to the nation than most of us in the form of taxes.

unless of course u r one of many who underdeclare their income to mat rempit level yet drives a champagne coloured mercedes and complain abt injustice every other day.

u r quite right about cyclists. at worse, some of us are serial monogomist. there is no shame being a woman man. yahoooo..

[Is]landa said...

no heat

butchscouserchick said...

cheh. no bitch fight? bummer

paper cut lady said...

what a bitch... but every government and PM or president from whatever country will bum you... trust... my arse is sore... and i'm not even a cyclist! (used to be but i've seen the light......)

yati

anttyk said...

I haven't registered to vote too. I think I should, but I just too lazy...

sicko said...

lils, and inDecent beach volleyball players.

pantani, ur wise indeed. I wouldnt trade you for the other commentators here. Unfortunately, i always pay my dues although it wont be put to good use. and surely you meant woman's man (with the apostrophe)but, trust me, theres nothing like being a women's man.

islanda, the bitch would have its day.

butch, the only bummer i want is not a bitch on heat.

yati, you shouldnt have any reason to complain. many would love a sore arse.

anttyk, make a difference. you should and you must. DAP needs you(r money).

yati said...

but... but... but... complaining is my favourite past time!! :(

Aren't you a cyclist and not gay?

fowler's floosie said...

actually, 'should i stay, should i go' always remind of stevie g circa chelshite.

And all you women out there continue to worship this polygamist???

No wonder the men in this blessed country of ours continue to think its acceptable!!!

Its up to us women to put a stop to this S***, whether Bumi or not!

Dua pupu Pantani : We rempits are offended to your statement above. We never underdeclare our income because in the 1st place it is not enough to be taxed!

Bekas Mat Rempit

sic6sense said...

yati, because your're not getting it good?

anon, despite being a good rider, i dont consider myself a cyclist.:p

ff, actually you're right. no matter, i'm sure he feels relieved not going now.

anon, thanks for pulling the tongue out from the cheek.

bekas mat rempit, why you bekas? got car park contract is it? Rempits are the new marginalized. they are to get jobs and contracts. Crime does pay.

yati said...

because... as ex-mr whitney houston would say... it's my perogative *doing the sophisticated 80's dance moves*

Kop Trollop said...

Why donch you want to be my fwen? I swallow wot? *pouts prettily*

Anonymous said...

sic6sense said...

yati, haha! you cant blame me for calling you Kak.

kop trollop, i didnt realize your friendship comes with fringe benefits before mah. :D

shopper mom, i'm proud of you. you're a true malaysian.

Leen Ash Burn said...

I also want to be your friend, since you have a champagne coloured Merz mah.

BrickfieldsScouserChick said...

PM's son-in-law is a pseudo fan. I read his profile once and he said he support Chelshite. Then when MyTeam was going to Old Trafford, he said he supports Manure.

I think he's a closer Queen Park Ranger fan but too ashamed to admit it.

brickfieldsscoucerchick said...

* closet, not closer.

sic6sense said...

leen, the only champagne i have is my lifestyle. and mercs are so boring. :p

brickfieldsmali, he's what i call a flake or in local terms, a lalang. I would be a closet supporter too if i support them. afterall they play at LOFTUS road. (Lack Of Fucking Talent r US).

Leen Ash Burn said...

Sicko issokay, i stiw want to be your friend.

vic said...

LOFT..... was it you or mad who first came up with that abbreviation?

And, ...i need to ask (sigh..am not bright lah). Should you go where?

sic6sense said...

leen darling, refer to kop trollop above on the How to make friends and influence others.

vic, not me. think its maddie (who else would :D). whoever comments here is a LOFT anyway. I was hoping for an intellectual discourse on why putrajaya's sewerage system needed fixing.

princessthosai said...

how about an intellectual intercourse instead?

It is in the nature of almost all of mankind to screw those below, when theyre at the top. It is also in the nature of the unCivil Service to do the same, in the knowledge that those at the top lead by example.

It is in the nature of those at the bottom of the pile to complain and complain, pray/fantasize/ daydream that goodness will prevail over all things evil and wrong.

As for me, i will just patiently wait for the next GE. Till then, take it as it comes.

vic

yati said...

ayo, sicko oi... i thought you said you're more tua than me :-p

sicko said...

princessthosai, is that like cybersex? :p

yati, chaih. ok its true, but i dont dance to whitneylah at least.

Mirebella said...

Go stay .. go stay.. thats the million ringgit q innit?

Depends on what you have going for you in "home sweet home" tho.

Am contemplating heading back to Asia but not to Malaysia. Does that make sense? Oh well.

Tell us how it goes! ;-)

sicko said...

mirebella, i love it here. at present though, something's amiss. cant quite place it but it must be the government's fault. :D

vic, if i do away for good, everything will be sold. and not cheaply!
