Merdeka oh Merdeka!

I caught a glimpse of YB Shafie Afdal ( betul ke spelling?) commenting on TV, scolding rather, the public for their apathy for not flagging up the Jalur Gemilang. Why only wait for the government to do that, he asked? Alahai .....dato...dato...... Malas lah nak komen dato sorang ni. Tak de faedah satu sen pun.

I feel so sayu for this year's merdeka. Whoever is the appointed Public Relations advisor/consultant for the govt , aiyaaa... you all so lowsy one lah. You think banal patriotism is intrinsic mehhhhh? Aiya..... where got?!

Instill, instill, instill .....
Brainwash, brainwash, brainwash ....
Propagate, propagate, propagate .........
Visually, auditory, legibly, symbolically...... and heh! Let's do it the M'sian way - gastronomically even .....

And YOU let it slipped away. Distracted by the by-election lah eh? Tu lah.... Padan muka.

Oh... how I miss him. Him who? Guess who?

God, I miss him. I really do.


Sighhhhh.......

Hi Ibu,
I fly the Jalur Gemilang kat pagar rumah ..hehe..

I also miss 'him'. If you're talking about politics la... kalau cakap pasal orang lain tu, my mistake lah..hehe...

Have a good Ramadhan dear :)

Mr Engineer said...

A lot of people miss him too....

You will be surprised that local people in Jeddah that I talked to are more interested to know about his well-doing rather than our current leader(s)....

Waterlily said...

Sape him him nih? Dokterrr? Loyerr? Cuba bilang sama saya...

Ehehehehh...sorry la..tengah kenyang ni, so best pekena ngan loyar buruk..

Tapi betul la, 'him' can be anyone wooo...yang duduk kat 'gunung' pun him jugak, yang duduk kat 'bukit' pun him jugak..yang duduk kat 'tepi kolam' pun him jugak..apatah lagi yang duduk sama dalam rumah .....adeii, loyar buruk lagi...

i knew it was him you were referring to all along. dont we all miss him? ok, perhaps i miss him less becos i met 'dear him' recently...muahahha...saje tak nak gembar-gemburkan...now tho, i've started missing him again...

i think the reason why this year's do was half the fun than it usually was was becos maybe the muslims were looking forward to ramadan more. i certainly did!

nonetheless, i enjoyed watching Sarjan Hassan for the umpteenth times.

not just in jeddah... everywhere we go around the world, say malaysia, his name is mentioned! heck, even postmen is a small town in England knew him!!
went to egypt two months ago, traders asked about him and said how lucky we malaysians to have had him. such comments would always bring tears to my eyes.
God, I miss him too. Met him at an event three weeks ago and the sight of him never failed to put me in awe!

Selamat Berpuasa! No comment on this issue ~ the feeling is mutual.

Adzrul Ariff said...

Salam Ibu.
Hehe. Just wanna wish Ibu and Family selamat berpuasa. :)

Salam ibu,

Agak terlambat sikit. Ingin mengucapkan selamat berpuasa to you & yr clan in Rawang.

tak berapa afdal if we flagging up our Jalur Gemilang only for MERDEKA day and after that, all those spirits yang membara gone.

IBU said...

Shana,
Don't we? Uwaaa....

KC,
Hehehe... memang mencabar depa nih!

DDI,

I beli jugak Jalur Gemilang yg mini tu. Tak sampai seminggu, tinggal bendera nya ajer. The plastic rods? Anak2 ku dah keluarkan buat pedang!! Aiyaiyaiii...

Mr Engineer,

Tu lah kan... di bumi sendiri, ada yg tak ingat apa yg dah diterajui beliau. I firmly believe he was a catalyst to the success of many. Cuma melayu mudah lupa.

Waterlily Diva,

Dia tu dokter yg berani lawan loyer. Ha... dah tau siapa?

Kerp,

Ya lah you... siap posing lagi.. Mabrukkkkkk!!! hehehe....where did I see that pic if not from your blog eh?

Anon,

err... tok asid kah itu? sbb pi egypt la ni kan? eh! kalau silap orang, sorry ek? Anyway.. yeah... a leader who is willing to be unpopular for his firm stand. MAsa kini, leaders rata2 hanya setakat mengaut populariti saja. Pendirian? Macam lalang.

Mrs Nordin,
Hi 5 !!

Adzrull,
Thanks and same to you too.

Kak Ton,
Tak terlambat pun. Kan sebulan? Thanks v much.

Selipar Jepun,

Lagi tak afdal kalau langsung dibiarkan tak berkibaran atas alasan bajet kurang, atau berkibaran tapi terbalik pulak.

Same same. Bila baca what some people say in response to his blog postings (-ve response, but not in his blog though...I got an email w/ those), hmmmm.... sedih sungguh. Kata2 nya kesat sangat & sooo demeaning. He's not perfect, no one is. But just look at what he has done. They truly missed the big picture here.... daaaa....
