UMNO in Dire Straits?

Some serious political bloggers have opined that there has been significant migrations of UMNO members to Bersatu and to a much lesser extent, other Malay-centric opposition parties. And this provides a sliver of hope to Malaysians.

Even if I am optimistic and hopeful, I’m not sure if this reported development is enough to cause UMNO to break up – but the situation is said to be much worse than it was in the last General Election.

In the last GE, UMNO won 89 seats which have now been reduced to just 86 seats three crossed the floor to the opposition bench.

In the coming GE, I am more inclined to believe the findings of some political analysts that UMNO will maintain only 50 seats while the rest of their lackeys in peninsular Malaysia will be wiped out.

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of UMNO and MO1 and associates!

Liverpool kept their push for a top-four finish in the EPL on course as Georginio Wijnaldum’s coolly converted volley (45+1)  and Emre Can’s low 25-meter strike into the bottom corner of the goalmouth (61) gave the Reds a hard-earned 2-1 comeback win over Burnley at a relieved Anfield on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side were again out of sorts – they were dismal, disappointing and dolorous. While nowhere near their scintillating best, typifying the Merseysiders' uneven form of 2017 – Liverpool still displayed a fair bit of character to strike back after going behind to an Ashley Barnes goal after only seven minutes.

Typical Toastmasters meeting set-up

I was in KL’s Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam yesterday – to attend the Speakers Dream Toastmasters meeting. I was a speech evaluator for an Advanced speech presented by the club president. I also took part in Table Topics.

And I was voted Best Evaluator and Best Table Topics Speaker. Nice!
