Life In Malaysia Is Stranger Than The Movies

Life in Malaysia is like a box of chocolates....you never know what you're going to get. Each morning you wake up to be amazed at what you read in the news.

First, we have the Pahang Syariah Court ordering the whipping of part-time model Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno for consuming beer in a hotel lounge. (read more here)

Then, we have the Andy Lau-Carol Chu debacle. Whoever heard of a son-in-law who is ashamed to be seen at his father-in-law's funeral procession?

To the extent where he was shielded from view from head to knees by numerous silver umbrellas??!! It's preprosterous! (
Last wish of Carol Chu's dad, Son-in-Lau goes under cover and Quite a scene at funeral of Chu's dad)

Is he ashamed to acknowledge the Chu family? After all, they are not rich and famous, owning only a nondescript business selling incense worship items. Or does he still want to play the field? Or does he have the same under cover relationship with another or more women??

And then, today, PAS Youth amused me by condemning the Michael Learns To Rock concert which will be held in Genting on September 5. The party chief said his party would not hesitate in mobilising its members to prevent the concert from happening if the performance was not stopped. (read more here)

Excuse me, Nasrudin, have you ever heard any of MLTR's songs? They are love ballads, not metallic rock or whatever it is that you imagined them to be! Please do not protest for the sake of protesting. It only makes a laughing stock out of you.

Oops, that last comment was from me, ManekiNeko, not "Man". Keyboard just got away from me for a moment.

I'm a human being, too, unfortunately. Does that mean you hate me, too? :)

For a moment there I thot someone who had to convince everyone of his gender had posted a comment....Lol

But yeah...it's getting ridiculous, I think they are trying to relive the Middle Ages, perhaps.
