General Election Campaign Mode

Foremost to all my blogging friends - Doc TA, Cikgu, Kerp, Pak Mior, Pak Zabs, Pak Zawi, Mat Salo, Hero and Nad, Minci, Water Lilly, Accia, Bergen, Nadya, Mekna, Miqdad, GM, MB, and too many more to mention here - I extend my hand in humble apology should I not be able to visit and make a comment or 2 for the duration of the PRU12. Apart from my commitment to Webtv8, Lajnah Kebajikan dan Kemasyarakatan PAS Pusat, and PAS Kelana Jaya, I most especially have to maintain my momentum in sending news and maintain the NYMHM blog; these would keep me especially busy for this short period.

I write this for fear of losing your friendship, one which I have come to appreciate and value. Please, if ever such a thought that I may be aloof now, strike it out of your mind and know that I will always remain your friend. Permit me, once this period is done with, to once again visit you as I always have prior to this.

InsyAllah, I will still be updating this humble and at many a times, a nonsensical blog which all of you have so kindly visited and humour me - I thank you. Writing - even the nonsensicals which I always have - gives me the freedom to release and relieve myself from...whatever. Joy, sadness, love, and hate, I once read are the same emotional phase we go through in life; only the manner one receive and channel out the emotion makes the difference in a person. I, for one much prior to this, was a very emotional and tumultuous person.

A man I knew and still does, had invited me to learn the skills of a writer for he said that my very character then - repulsive at time as it may be - were the mark of a creative person; I could only but laugh at him then...and still do. Still, I find myself...writing and blogging; one of the numerous millions who write not for money nor fame, but the very pleasure in being able to express oneself in the way we only can. Each and every one of us are unique, and most certainly each and every one of us are creative in our very own way. And we write because we want to...

For my friends who are very much interested in politics, please, avail yourself to the many blogs and sites at readscentral, some which many are well acquainted with already. And especially for the PRU12, some like minded people has put up a blog entirely dedicated to keep tabs of the latest news and posting. Do give Election 2008 - Malaysian Media Monitor's Diary a peek at the very least - they have been around since May 2003.

At the peak of Battle of Britain, Churchill said "Never was so much owed by so many to so few (people)", in reference to the brave fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force who successfully repelled many a Luftwaffe raid. But in the context of Malaysian politics, it perhaps should be read: "Never have so few owed so much - through tyranny and treachery - to so many", in reference to those politicians who not only abuse their power, but are corrupt to the core.

"Lawan, Tetap Lawan!", insyAllah. Agi idup, agi nglaban.

Salam Shah:

Worry not my brother. You will not lose our friendship. In times like this some of us need to channel our mind and energy to principles that we hold to and guarded close to our hearts.

Time like this which is crucial in what we believe in(politicaly) and we try to give our best to our perjuangan.

Worry not my brother.
At the end of the day we know we have contributed something how small it might be for Islam and the country.

At the end of our life hopefully whatever small thing we do will be redha by our Creator. That is much better the the whole world and the universe.

ALLAHu Akbar!

If you are away from us for a long spell to channel your energy to this struggle of ours, we are idiots to give you up as a friend. If you are away for a long spell because you are courting so and so again we are idiots to give you up as a friend. Don't worry.
