The Great Abdul Hadi Awang-Najib Razak Romance

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang was kind enough to serve us with a joke on Christmas Day. He had boasted he is advising the government. He even insisted it is not to grab power solely for the 'throne', the seats and the positions, but to become the country’s savior.
PAS are already seeing deep fissures which divide the Islamist party, formed in the course of ideological conflicts that saw a faction broke away to form Amanah. If what he said is true, then one can expect another revolt within the party’s ranks. 
I didn’t know Hadi is a joker – he wanting to save the country! Of course, I am not disagreeing with him – it is true, the country does need saving. But from the likes of Najib Razak and company!
Hadi and Najib are engaged in a strange courtship ritual and it has been going on for some time now. Hadi had taken the bold step of wooing the Najib government last month amid lame attempts by the other opposition parties to overthrow the Prime Minister by voting down the Budget 2016 in the Dewan Rakyat.
Najib was moved by Hadi’s love declaration and he responded by proposing that UMNO work with PAS to build a "perfect Malaysia", in line with Islamic ideals, during his party's annual general assembly this month.
And on December 17, 2015, Hadi and Najib met face-to-face. At a regional conference for the Al-Azhar University alumni in Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia Chronicle, December 26, 2015
The love-struck pair was seen together in matching pink Baju Melayu. To borrow DH Lawrence’s words, “they stood together in a false intimacy, a nervous contact”. And then they knew they needed each other. They wanted to be together. Their eyes said it all. 
I am happy if the romance happens. They deserve one another; they really do. 
EPL leaders Leicester City saw their nine-match unbeaten run end when Liverpool substitute Christian Benteke’s right footed shot to the bottom right corner of the net in the sixty-second minute earned his team a 1-0 victory.
It is obvious our strikers don’t know what their jobs are! Liverpool peppered the Foxes' goalmouth with 25 attempts – twelve were off target and the remaining could only yield one goal.
The 4-day undertaking to peruse and scrutinize DMK1023 exam scripts is laborious and grueling.
Sure, I know it is a lecturer's job. But the pain of marking is like slow death gripping my tortured mind. Like blood, sweat and tears forsaking my spent body.
