Yes, I am back!! Unfortunately for some, I did not expire due to drug or alcohol overdosed and if I actually did, could anyone blame me? We are living in one of the most boring times in our lives.
So, what is of interest while I was away?
Well, lets see, the PM was rumoured to have gotten married.....now..did anyone see the press conference which he denied the rumours? That guy has the look as if he has something to hide!! Rumours Rumours indeed!!
Then we have the Director of ACA being accused of corruption!! Oh God!! That was a good one, it was basically a laugh a minute session in the press room when all this stories began to crop up!!
I have to state that 50 years of independence does not make Malaysia a truly great country, rather it is still rather infantile in its maturity in its progress to become a great independent nation!! This is exhibited by the blatant corruption, political ineptness, haphazard planning and constructions and countless others that's just not worth mentioning here.
A country in its most infantile state such as Malaysia will without a doubt react like an infant, full of problems!!! Teething problems and such!! Of course, this is not to say that Developed Countries does not have its problems..they certainly do and much worse at times!!!
So, why is it so? Well, I believe that we can trace the roots to a situation called Greed and Jealousy, humanity's two best friends!!
It is greed that drives us to acquire more than we truly need which usually results in our inability to realise that we have acquired enough and it is jealousy that keeps us wanting to have more in other to keep up with others.
Some people would claim that they will acquire this much and this much so as that they will be in a level higher than those around them but as they acquire more wealth, legit or not....they suddenly realised that they are in a new level of society all together and are jealous of what those in this levels have and therefore they acquire more!! There's actually never the word, "enough" in their vocabulary. Thus, the end result is merely an evil vicious wheel that goes round and round till those who are able starve those who are not able.
Anyway, enough ramblings for the day, as one can see, I am completely disgusted with the turn of events around the world and also in Malaysia and my mind just can't seem to concentrate on one subject alone!!
So darlings!! If you wish for me to write on something more concrete, why not propose a topic for discussion?

Anyway, May I present to you all, the Bride and Groom:
Speaking of Happy, I saw the "Mistress" Yoda aka Happy Wong, Mother-in-Law of Gerald Jabu around the wedding and I must confess, she really looked like Yoda that night, in her awful black robe!! I wonder what the hell she was doing!! Sorry, no photographs of her as I was afraid that my camera lens would shatter when I took her photos!!!
As this is the Iban Wedding, as can be seen by the costume the Bride and Groom was wearing, most of the guest opted for Batik and Kebaya's, however, they were a few in some frump and dowdy outfits that could have only came from some "ah lian" boutique!!
Guests started pouring in into the Residence of the Deputy Chief Minister hours before the ceremony was intended to start, most likely to avoid having to park their cars blocks away from the Residence!!

By 7pm, the YB's and YM's (Yang Bodoh..oops!! I meant the Yang Berhormat and Yang Mulia's) started to arrive.
The Groom and His LoinsMen!! (ooh look Cocka! Feathers? No Cock Feathers however!! Or rather none that was evident!!)
I say Jabu, One Daughter Please and make it Snappy!
Look into my eyes!! You're Mine
Bride: Oh God!! He's Starring at my Breast!!
Groom: Oh God! She's as flat as an airport runway!!

One Big Happy Family!!

Thus we have the Iban wedding, which was rather lenghty ceremony that lasted for nearly an hour while the rest of us were indulging in alcohol and keeping ourselves amused with ever so polite social conversation!! The major decision that the guests had to make as can be seen in the picture below of YB Snowdown Lawan and his wife, was whether they wanted a glass of red wine or a glass of champagne!!
