Approaching Monday for 5-day seclusion, feeling tired and weak. Thinking of mother and teacher ....
I'm so tired
I'm so tired
I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired
My mind is on the blink
I wonder, should I get up and fix myself a drink?
No, no, no
I'm so tired
I don't know what to do
I'm so tired
My mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you
But I know what you would do

The belief amongst political pundits is Dato Seri Tengku Zafrul was appointed by Tan Sri Muhyiddin, thus remained aligned to him despite being reappointed by Dato Seri Ismail Sabri as Minister of Finance.
Though an UMNO branch member and associated with the 'ole Tingkat 4 group, he is seen as pro-PPBM. The talk on the political grapevine is that his attempt to get a place in Kuala Lumpur to run under UMNO ticket for the GE15 has come to a nought.
Zafrul could run in Lembah Pantai where his uncle was formerly the UMNO Division Chief and his brother the current Deputy Division Head. However, it is no easy ride against current MP Fahmi Fadzil.
His name turned up at his mother home town of Kuala Pilah. The current MP Eddin Shazlee is from PPBM and the one that slept through the entire graduation ceremony of a University he presided over. PPBM may consent for Zafrul's candidacy.
The man in the hot seat at Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC), Tan Sri Azam Baki hails from Seremban, Negeri Sembilan too.

"Your Mission A Voice, should you choose to accept it .... This tape will self-destruct"
Returning to our car after breakfast at the neighbourhood eatery, "Mak O Mak" on a restful Sunday, a Little Bird left a message placed in an envelope written "OPEN IMMEDIATELY" on the car windshield wiper.
Inside the envelop is a message instructing to pick up a parcel placed under the car at the inner side of the back right tyre. The parcel contained an audio CD playing device. Immediately rush to a nearby park to find a bench at a quiet spot. Upon sitting, we pressed the ON and PLAY button to hear the electronically muzzled voice of Little Bird to disguise his or possibly her identity.
Birdie went at length on an insider trading exploits of a Minister of Finance that was investigated by the Securities Commission (SC) and it was prosecutable. It came with photos and an instruction to have it burned after memorising the face.
The assignment is to be a trumpet playing whistleblower. It ended with "Should you or any of your associate be caught or killed, Little Bird will disavow any knowledge of your actions" Immediately, the CD player went into flame and photos thrown on top as it burns into ashes within minutes.
Damn! Its like in the 60s TV series. This mission has to be carried out and be done delicately...

By Lim Sian See
MACC Chief Commissioner Azam Baki and the MACC panel has come out to explain the 2mil shares ownership in year 2016 issue.
Whether you believe their explanation or not is up to you. I am not defending Azam.
However, what EVERYONE did not address is: How much was that ownership worth.

When told two years ago that DAP days are numbered, no political pundits would believed Chinese business community are bitter with Lim Guan Eng and Tony Pua.
Tony Pua was not booed at the Chinese ghost festival few years for no reason. When Guan Eng was heading MOF, the tip-off on their Publika outfit was not plucked from thin air. So was the use of IRD to harass and extort Chinese businessmen.
Joceline Tan continued her Christmas Day column, "Can DAP undo the 'dead knot' before GE15?" with another one related to DAP yesterday Saturday.
This time is about the recent World Chinese Economic Forum held in Kuala Lumpur. There is the expected reaction to the presence of Dato Najib, who recently lost in his SRC appeal at the Court of Appeal, to deliver the keynote speech.
One Professor interpreted it as a slap in the face of judiciary by China. While FBer RF Lias elaborated Mahathir's faults for making Malaysia unattractive for FDI. Malaysia Chronicle titled Joceline's column with a long alarmist title of Najib making a political comeback by reaching out to Chinese.
He is far from making any possible comeback at the moment. That is diverting attention from the political reality facing DAP.
