again

Again, more depressing news in the media.

The unwarranted and completely unnecessary arrests of several Bersih and Opposition leaders and supporters intending on peaceably handing over a memorandum to protest the extension of the retirement age for the EC chairperson.

This time, I actually personally know one of those arrested. I neglected my news-reading yesterday as I was feeling under the weather, but feeling much better today I did a bit more reading (digression: I really do need to start work on my Honours thesis ideas).

All I can say is that I am appalled that the authorities have resorted to such scare tactics to prevent the public from speaking out against the way ‘they’ do things. Our democratic system is clearly a farce.

On to other stuff, as I’m quite distracted by my incessant and extremely painful back pains.

MY BRISBANE BUNNY IS HOME *big love*.

After months and months, Esther Phan is finally home and in great form 😀 Hanging out with the girls this morning over our roti brunch and then heading to Sushers’ for the cool air (and clean toilet, heh) to yabber on and on, was just like old times. Lovely.

Expect my updates to peter out slowly, as the Boyfriend arrives in 10 days and I am getting busier and busier.

I hope everyone keeps well and has a good holiday season to come, and that we’d stop hearing so much depressing news about our abusive authorities, dense policies, and plain stupid statements.

    we’ll be hearing more of these silly arrests in the near future; i don’t think these political dilemmas will die down any sooner. the least one can do is probably to hope for the best though personally, by ‘the best’ i only have a change of government in mind. wonder if that’s appropriate?

    anyway, whatever the case is, our govt’s fucked up enough as it is. they could’ve done it the nicer, much profesional way, but they chose to be defensive. that’s bad leadership, if you ask me. 🙂

    funny, i talk about our politics too on my blog, but not nearly as interesting as yours. very remarkable views, if i say so myself 🙂

    btw, yeah, i’m a random nobody. cheers.
