This is, yet another sleepless night. Passed into deep slumber after dinner at 21:00 hours just now, went to washroom at 23:30, and then, as expected, I failed to continue sleeping. I very much wanted to carry on reading Anthony Seldon’s Blair Unbound, a very interesting book which gives insight into Blair’s premiership from 911 until the day he left office. But I thought of listening to Luna Sea’s Final Act concert dvd and checking emails, so I left my favourite book aside.

2 Malaysia in health services

As we approach September 16, the date on which Sarawak achieved independence through by joing Malaysia 46 years ago, my thought turns to the progress made in developing my home state.
The Malaysiakini report on the failed Flying Doctor Service is particularly illuminating, in highlighting the problems of public health care for the rural dwellers of Sarawak – and Sabah as well.

Plea for Indian M’sians
Azly Rahman Malaysiakini Nov 26, 07 11:16am
The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil. We see before us a huge community of producers the members of which are unceasingly striving to deprive each other of the fruits of their collective labour – not by force, but on the whole in faithful compliance with legally established rules. – Albert Einstein in ‘Why Socialism?’ (1949)
What do I think of Western civilisation? I think it would be a very good idea. – Mohandas K Gandhi

The yellow wave and its durian effect
Malaysiakini Nov 12, 07
“Bersih, Cekap, Amanah” – old political slogan
“Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang” – new political slogan
“B.e.r.s.i.h” – slogan to get from the new slogan to the old.
I quote the first few paragraphs of the 1776 American Declaration of Independence:
“… When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. …

Deal with the rot, not the tape

If Chief Justice Ahmad Fairuz has any sense of personal honour and professional integrity left, he should resign immediately. If Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has even the slightest responsibility for leadership and moral duty to the citizens, he should not extend the Chief Justice’s contract, due to expire this October. If the Malaysian Bar Council has any credible principle of societal obligation and self-policing ethics of a profession, it would disbar the lawyer making that phone call shown in the infamous video clip exposed by former deputy premier Anwar Ibrahim.

WHERE ON EARTH IS MY RM 31 ?????
Can I buy the best telescope by using RM 31
To see the poor schools all the way from the outer space
To see the children, who, can’t afford to study
To see the patients, who, are suffering because of lack of $$$, to see the doctors
To see the old folks, who, are lonely and homeless
To see the nation’s poverty, starvation, struggle, and hopelessness,
After, paying RM 31

“I wonder if it is the end of the world when we wake up tomorrow,” she whispered in my ears when I held her in my arms. “Honey, we could only pray that things will improve soon,” I replied with my warmest tone of voice. When I looked into her beautiful eyes, which were full of tears, I felt like I wanted to stare into them forever, as if the adorable eyes of hers would allow both of us to swim in, when the temperature reached minus 20℃ in Hong Kong.
