While waiting for my wife at SJMC this morning, I bought today's NST and the Star. 3 things caught my attention which I thought I should share with some of you who have stopped reading mainstream newspapers. The saturday NST is a must for me cos I try not to miss my gud ole baby boomer contemporary Datuk Johan Jaafar and his point blank column (which is no longer entitled 'point blank' hehe). After reading it I would immediately text him to say if I agreed or violently object! hahaha. Today, his tagline is hubris, greed and the global meltdown. I saw a glimpse of the latest issue of The Edge too and as I hurriedly speed-read ( my personal copy is home delivered every sunday morning..hehe so there was no need for me to buy that also lah!) my wonderings came to rest...cos whoala... The Edge has let the cat out of the bag... about institutions whose core businesses are investments, fund management et al...hehe. I should know the full details by tomorrow morning.. hihi. I was wondering why those outfits purportedly responsible for the nation's investment portfolios have been pretty quiet (menikus as we say in malay) after The Black October. Conveniently distracted by shahrukh khan's datukship award by Malacca (recommended by Daim so it seems, as reported by mainstream media...hmmm) I reckon.. hihi. So everyone was like so preoccupied with that episode and forgot to pay attention to other pressing issues of economic significance.. hehe. ya ya no politics...except what I had predicted years ago...is happening.. a major component BN party has openly requested that a second Deputy BN post be given to them which means another Deputy PM's post lah! hehe.

Seremban highway about 730pm yesterday, northbound to KL, traffic volume building up on both sides of the lane...balik kampong for some and balik KL for others like me..hehe
i think 5 days (mon-fri) in kuantan is bloody long enuf, don't u think so? time to head back to KL. hmm KL home sweet home. It would be faster to just use the new kuantan highway but i decided to use the segamat highway instead, go thru muadzam shah, keratong, bahau, kuala pilah, seremban and then stop over at PD to visit my mum. After a damn gud 'babat' (typically javanese..hehe) dish..we head back to KL. Phew, what a relief...everything in the house was as in..cuak jugak...u know lar wif the global financial meltdown and increasing crime rate and all..who wud not be worried rite? Although my RM50,000 house theft insurance is still in force...but the heartsick and mess and the psychological after-effects of a burglary can be very disturbing for quite a long time u know! some don't recover all, move house and start anew. ok folks catch up later later leh..nid to shave off my head...its grown fairly quickly after 5 days of great food..hahaha
