Obvious Potential That Should Not Be Put To Waste...

When talking about Pizza, in Malaysia, people would think of Pizza Hut and some would also think of Domino's Pizza. Both have their own specialty but my choice would be Domino's Pizza as the more preferable one. Probably it is due to the choice of thin crusts which make the pizza taste better. Anyway, I am not going to promote them as I am not paid to do so but I think Domino's Pizza could easily expand it's business but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I know that it is very famous for it's fast delivery but since I had the free time, I went to dine at the Domino's Pizza restaurant. When ordering, I was required to give my phone number and my name. Not only that, the cups used in Domino's were the polystyrene cups and I had to eat the Pizza right from the boxes.

It was certainly a surprised for me and I think even though they do not prioritize dine in customers, they should at least have certain standards as they are a big franchise and a well known one too.

Okay, I've got a story based on something that may interest you and my blog partner, the Politician. Last weekend, I was in counselling with a trainee therapist and in a way, it could be called a therapy session. but you see, I was only there for the experience and the bonus marks. I did not have any social or behavioural problems.

Haha, I'm sorry for bursting your bubble. I know the moment you guys saw that I was in therapy, you all wanted a little drama. You know the usual sofa, and me lying down and getting hypnotised and stuff. Well, sorry lah... no such thing happened. I was not prescribed vicodin or any drug to keep me sane. So rest assured, I'm still me...*twitch*...*twitch*... SEE? :)

Okay, so this therapy thing was for my class called Human Personality and in the bonus mark section, there was this counselling session that students had to apply for. So I signed up without regard to what I'll say during the session. Just within that day, a woman called me to set up an appointment and before I know it, I was on my way to counselling.

The funniest bit was when I had somehow ranted on and on about my family, friends, myself, my interests, what bores me, what doesn't, what annoys me.... and the therapist wouldbe nodding intently as I went on and on. She was exactly how you would imagine a therapist to look like... talk about your stereotypes huh? LOL. A friend of mine suggested I pretend to have an imaginary friend and I replied "What am I, a five-year-old ar?" I was tempted to say "I see dead people and I see one sitting on your shoulders. She's pweeetttiiiieeee..." Not funny? I didn't say it was for everyone. Scare the poor trainee therapist only. Haha.

Human Personality is the bomb, seriously. The work, not so much, but it's really learning about the diverse personalities that is inborn in every human being. It all comes down to who you uniquely are as an individual. Surprisingly, it doesn't diss the existence of God, like how some psychology subjects do. Let's face it, we're complex creatures.

I'm so psyched right now.

Who Started It First?!

Recently, another member who is the assemblyman for Malim Nawar, Perak, Keshwinder Singh has quited Democratic Action Party (DAP) and became Barisan Nasional (BN)-friendly but he is independent. Of course many of the voters and the opposition would be angry of this.

There have been allegations that the assemblyman, Keshwinder Singh was bought by the Barisan Nasional. One of the method was that his debt was settled by .... Regardless of that, whether it is true or not, I think it is up to him whether to stay as being an opposition or vice-versa. The DAP planned to bring him to the court. According to Ngeh Koo Ham, all elected representative in the state were required to sign a contract which requires a its elected representative to pay a 5 million compensation if they quit the party. If this is true, I would salute DAP as they have take a step ahead and they have fore-sighted accurately!

Everything was started by Anuar Ibrahim after the 12th General Election on March 8, 2008. Now it is being done unto you, what is it like? It was an utterly desperate move by Anwar to be popular and in control but, in fact, it was rubbish. The opposition suggested to the government that there should be a legislation to prevent the elected representatives from switching parties. If I was the government, I will not entertain them too! Moreover, Barisan Nasional does not have such problems.

The clause above cannot be applied for Datuk Zaid Ibrahim because he quited the party honorably.

Please view it. Thank you =)

Why Najib should stay as the PM?

Najib Tun Razak, the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia has been alleged by many parties to be involved in  the case of the cruel killing of the Mongolian model, Altantuya Shaariibuu. Whether he is involved in it or not, I don't know. What important is that he has been doing a good job as a Prime Minister. Based on what I see, he has not been shaken as a Prime Minister because at the moment, his leadership has been good. He has not done any mistake that could lead to him being unpopular and possibly, lead to the same event that has happened to Pak Lah (the fifth Prime Minister).

At the time when he became Prime Minister, many people were afraid. It was mainly due to the case of the Mongolian model but after being a Prime Minister for more than 1 year, he has brought a lot of changes to the country, especially in the economy. Yesterday, he has announced the abolishment of the quota system by the government. (More on this, click here http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/6/12/nation/20100612201303&sec=nation)

The thing that worries me would be the 'underground' power that nobody sees, maybe some do. Mahathir once said in his speech that he knows what is best for the country but at times, he cannot do it because there is people or force from below that are against it. I think same goes for the current Prime Minister. If he does something wrong, he will be pressured and possibly, end up being like what happened to Pak Lah. Thus, it will also affect the country.

Maybe this will give my dear readers a hint!

No more 'Datuk Seri' and 'Datuk', you become a 'Nenek' lah!

Chua Jui Meng, a former Vice-President of MCA, former Malaysian Minister of Health, former Member of Parliament, was stripped of the Datuk Seri and Datuk given by the late Sultan Mahmud Iskandar. However he still has the title Datuk that has been conferred to him by the Sultan of Selangor and Pahang.

There was no reason given by the Johor Royal Council in the press conference but they just confirmed that he does not have the title anymore. Chua Jui Meng has changed his Political Party to Parti Keadilan Rakyat, an opposition party and he was also elected as a supreme council of the party.

What does this show us? The Barisan Nasional has the ability to do anything they want including influencing the Sultan? It is not for me to judge.

What's your choice for FIFA world cup 2010?
