"He also cited the similarities that Christian and Islam shared, adding that in the Quran, Jesus (Prophet Isa) was a servant of God."
I am not a Christian, but in Christianity it is obvious Jesus is revered as the Son of God. Whatmore, Badawi demonstrated his lack of tact at a Christmas tea party organised by the Christian Federation of Malaysia and hosted by KL Archbishop Datuk Murphy Pakiam.
#2 - Respect Islam while celebrating Christmas, Tsu Koon
Another Christianity-shaming incident happened at Penang:
And his Christmas message was just one paragraph: “Malaysians, while celebrating Christmas, must respect Islam as the country’s official religion.”
The non-Muslims attending the Christian Federation of Malaysia's party in Penang is obviously irate with Tsu Koon's speech. What is worst these words comes not from a typical Malay-Muslim conservative minister (which would be inflamatory, but still understandable) but from a CHINESE! It's obvious how fucking low Tsu Koon has kowtowed to his BN masters.

those buggers should atone themselves for making this pretentious turd
A former college mate, Phillip invited me to premiere of this movie organised by magazine KLite. This was premiered not long ago in Britain and was said to be in running for Oscars and Academy Award or stuff. So I went few hours ago, eager to knock my balls off. It got 84% rating of freshness on Rotten Tomatoes so, it ain't gonna hurt, right?
Big mistake, getting in late. I was few minutes late and apparently the damn movie started ON time, and I guess without any message from sponsors =P Missing out first crucial minutes of a movie can be real pain in the arse, as I sat down and there's this little girl, Briony Tallis who just started rehearsing her play with her cousins. What made it worse there was no subtitle, and all the cockney or whatever English accent can be hard to decipher at times.
Things started to get annoying and cumbersome when the scenes started to resemble those Malaysian "Cerekarama"* on screen. I despise those kind of family-oriented melodrama which makes me at times wish I could watch gay porn instead. Ok not that twisted, but watching a baboon scratch his arse on National Geography would be better. Then there is the most fucked up thing I've ever witnessed on that night:
Yeah, every anorexic girl's dream figure....yucks!
There's a scene where Knightley's character was lounging by the lake with her brother, Leon and his friend and she's wearing that hideous looking swimsuit couple with a cap on her head. Jebus, the worst part of the scene was to steer my eyes from her (really lack of)boobs. Hell those sickos even designed the swimsuit some few holes just to let us peek on her tits...uggghhhhh.
I tell you one of those actors can really act. Leon's friend Paul Marshall has the most sickening pedophile look I've ever witnessed (I don't think you would want to offer a compliment for that actor) and when he offered chocolate to the eldest cousin, Lola Quincey (she's looks only 10) you can bet your bottoms he's eyeing on her! Eeewwwww sick! sick! sick! I bet you again by the end of the movie when the crucial twist comes, you won't be surprised. >_>
Anyway the story is Cecillia Tallis (played by Keira Knightley) had a love affair with her handyman Robbie (James McAvoy). Her dad sponsored that bloke through college apparently as well. Robbie did save her sister Briony's life when the latter dared him to save her from drowning. Apparently she had a crush on him, but misunderstanding grew when Robbie became close to Cecillia and she started seeing them do um....some naughty things. First time Cecillia stripped to her undergown in front of Robbie at a fountain and Briony well, caught her from the house window. Actually, Robbie dropped some precious stuff into the fountain and poor Cecillia has to strip and dive in to grab it back (bad Robbie) and besides, it's a totally wrong spot to do a striptease act. Secondly, Robbie asked Briony to deliver an apology letter to Cecillia which turned out mailed a wrong post containing a really filthy word (starting with a C and rhymes with aunt). Well as kids are nosy, Briony took a peek and was shocked (duh) and not surprisingly later she caught her sister making out with Robbie. Later when Lola was sexually molested at night while rest of the family were looking for her twin brothers, Briony told the family Robbie did it. Well, if you're Briony you had to, don'cha? Robbie's lil' nasty sex pervert somebody's gotta nail him away.
And away he did. He got assigned in an army during WWII (besides its better than rotting in jail) while Cecillia became a nurse. Poor lovebyrds got seperated during the war, boo-hoo. Briony became a nurse too like her sister and after the war, she felt guilty about framing Robbie into prison and tried to make amends.
The critics can rave all the bloody lot their want; woah its a contender for Oscars etc but the total sales worldwide speaks of itself; measly 2 million US dollars. Sure there is a stunning 5-minute uncut scene on beach of Dunkirk which is the most epic moment of the whole movie, but I might as well cut it out from rest of this pretentious muck and post it on Youtube. The first half of Atonement is pointless, boring you feel threatened to walk out of the cinema any time. Really, like those Malay telenovelas where the dialogue is so freaking pointless and banal. Talking about chemistry between Knightley and McAvoy....um does the story even gave premise for that?! The best lines Cecillia can mutter are "Come back....I love you". I can't believe how stupid those critics are, the script is as profound as some trite teenage paperback and their romance is as meaningful as two wood blocks humping together.
Well to credit, the ending does give some sort of devastating twist. But then as the movie ends, you wonder what's the fuss all about. Don't worry, it's not your fault Phil buddy.
*Cerekarama = Malay soap-operas

Well, the first one is not really a rally. It's a festival to celebrate Human Rights Day which is organized by the bar council every year. That will be on December 9 at Sogo. More details at
The second one should be interesting. To recap, the government is planning to amend the constitution (again) to allow Abdul Rashid (EC chairman) to serve one more year (presumably so he can clean out his closet and manipulate the next GE). The topic will be discussed on December 11 and BERSIH is planning a gathering at the parliament to protest.
The third one is even more interesting. As we all know, the toll is going to be increased (again) next year. Expect to see the Kesas demonstration all over again. Not much details on this one yet.
Expect Al-jazeera and BBC especially getting their lenses ready. How would the BN dictatorship and hypocritical spin-doctors utilise the police force and the FRU? Expect more international coverage. The Indians all around the world especially are getting pissed with the way Nazri beruk tell Tamil Nadu chief to fuck off and mind his own business. Certainly not a way to end Visit Malaysia Year 2007 graciously ain't it?
