Trust UMNO

Malaysians cannot help but know that the UMNO General Assembly is on, i.e. November 27-December 01, 2012. The mainstream press is devoting pages and pages of the proceedings but one headline in yesterday’s Star stood out like a sore thumb – ‘Shahrizat: Trust UMNO’ (p 10). Of all people, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil should not be the one who speaks about trust because she betrayed the government and even her party when her family brought about the NFC scandal that centered on cows and luxury condos amongst other extravagances. So if she is not to be trusted, why should people trust UMNO just because she said so? Except for her mindless minions in Wanita UMNO, nobody in their right mind would listen to her babbling prattle.

On Wednesday afternoon, I was at KPMG Tower in PJ’s Bandar Utama to evaluate Grace Loh’s advanced speech at their Toastmasters meeting. I have always enjoyed their meetings and this was no different. I was glad I came. My score for this meeting is a 7 out of a 10.

The EPL game between Liverpool and Tolttenham Hotspur also on Wednesday was another forgettable episode. Yup, the Reds lost 1-2. Poor defending led them down and Spurs took advantage when Gareth Bale's low cross from the left allowed Aaron Lennon to open the scoring in the seventh minute with a tap-in. Then Bale added a second when his 25-yard free-kick left Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina virtually motionless on the line (16). Liverpool pulled one back during a fortunate circumstance when the unlucky Bale headed into his own net (72). The picture below expresses my sentiment with regard to Brendan Rodgers!
