January 2008

I got reconnected with game book

Pak Lah launched election manifesto but Malaysians were not fooled this time – we were prepared to send BN packing to retirement

MIC starts its threat before general election – as expected, it backfired

March 2008

Just before the election, young voters had their doubts but at end of the end, young voters made huge difference

The great tsunami – Samy Vellu was finally voted out and the oppositions made huge advances in the parliament. Key states – Perak and Selangor falls to the oppositions.

The politician who was involved in the Zakaria Palace fiasco is dead. Can he carry his wealth after death?

The in-fighting within Pakatan Rakyat for MB candidacy was shameful. We voters had our second thoughts now.

Pak Lah, severely burned in the recent election creates a smaller cabinet

April 2008

Someone proposed khalwat charges for non Muslims

My “always bachelor” brother got engaged

Started the “Childhood Memoriesseries – managed to record several posts in 2008. Hopefully update more in 2009.

BN cooks up the pig issue in Selangor but interestingly it was a project started by them before the elections.

May 2008

Leave home early, leave office late due to traffic jam

Finally made the trip to the East Coast after a long time – the East Coast highway was a welcome change to the old road

20 FRU vs 1 Citizen – guess who wins? None of the policemen have been booked for  use of excessive force

June 2008

One fuel hike announcement, crazy queue starts to form but it ends up burning more fuel for many

Celebrated the Big Boss’ 4th birthday

Got my fuel rebate after a long queue at the post office

MIC came out with the Manya Blogger Award

My thoughts on what MIC really need to do

Diablo 3 is coming!

The teacher who said derogatory words against young children and got rewarded handsomely. Malaysia Boleh!

Pak Lah, the PM in public transport (but what a joke!)

Anwar is back in Parliament

MCMC’s latest act against RPK did not work. It did not stop RPK or the readers from accessing RPK’s hard biting posts

September 2008

My brother got married

Ahmad Ismail kicked himself with racial words but remained on the loose. Another Malaysia Boleh!

The Government got more stupid – arresting a MP, a blogger and a journalist under ISA

The superb Hitler BN parody hits the blogsphere – it was funny and downright correct

Flip flop Mike is at it again, hopefully for the last in 2008

Goodbye 2008, welcome to 2009!
