A great gathering in Kuala Lumpur

Roughly 2 months ago, a coalition of organizations working for a fairer electoral system gathered at Batu Burok in Terengganu. It ended bloodily, with several individuals suffering gun shot wound. The police fire live bullets towards the crowd, allegedly the crowd was attacking an plain cloth police. The people on the ground insist that the police officer was instigating the crowd.

Now, the coalition is holding a rally in the middle of Kuala Lumpur, this Saturday, November 10. They expect 100,000 people to show to express their support for a fairer election. I plan to be there to record it for make benefit of the glorious nation of Kazakhstan!

Er, I mean Metblogs KL.

The effort may be hazardous to liberty though: the police has warned that the police will arrest anybody found taking part in the rally. I’d really like to find out how the police would arrest 100,000 people!

24 hours later

I’m barely surviving.

This Monday is especially cruel. I’m still at the office but I hope to leave soon, even when papers left unfinished, with deadlines looming. I long for my bed, with it, that smelly blanket of mine.

I envy Metblogs of Pakistan. With that emergency, they got their Monday off, though they might be fighting for their life. Still, that is much more exciting.

Sigh…

The upcoming Diwali caught me by surprise. Because of it, one day will be off my calendar, making my week runs havoc. I came back to the office, convinced I could finish my papers if I had four days. Turn out, I have only two days, no thanks to Diwali.

Argh!

I thought after graduation from Michigan, there would be no more papers and no more scary professors. No more impossible deadlines.

Now, here I am, with unbelievable amount of papers with scary bosses with godlike deadlines! I might as well go for my Masters right now!

But hey, maybe I should be thankful regardless. Those auditors don’t seem to ever sleep…

Thank heavens I learned economics, not accounting.

I am selfish

I think I am selfish.

I hate Monday and I really hate Monday. Whenever Monday looms, the whole body aches, finding an excuse to skip Monday. And how am I selfish?
