last man standing aka just spray it!


A couple of years ago, every Malaysian felt he/she needed to have a say on the Human Rights issue. Women Rights, the Anwar Ibrahim case, the right to purchase an imported car without high import taxes, the right to party, the right to congregate. According to the law, anymore than 6 people is considered an illegal assembly. No one pays attention to anyone. We carry on just doing whatever. The rich buy more cars, women are women, clubs just pay the 'under-table' money to stay open, my friends and me continue being illegal. This is probably the only sign left of a nation that once believed in individual freedoms.

Thanks Bob.

I know Kris, our attitudes here will never change. I guess being brough up to accept what is on your plate isn't always such a good thing. Well, it makes the work I do all the more interesting. Maybe Szentes is a good escape for you, eh?

Tidak Apa: It's Okay.

Well tough titties people! Wake up and pay attention. Stop complaining and do something about it! For those of us who do stand up, we tend to be seen as trouble-makers or worse, in my case, a bitch. Funny.
