Sarawakian Crocodiles


I was just reading this Malaysian Insider report and started to imagine crocodiles running amok all over Sarawak – well, they have been running wild all this while actually! DAP’s Lim Guan Eng said to laughter from some 50 Iban villagers who attended his talk at the Rumah Rassau longhouse that “this state has timber, oil but unfortunately there are a lot of crocodiles also,” – as the Penang chief minister toured two rural Melanau villages and an Iban settlement an hour’s boat ride from Sibu. “You see for yourself who catches the crocodiles, who have been protecting them,” added Lim in reference to corrupt government officials. Lim has been busy campaigning in the Sibu parliamentary area in a valiant effort to thwart the might of the BN election machinery. We will see if the Chinese in Sarawak are in sync with the Chinese in peninsula Malaysia – I don’t see why not!?


And finally the last of the EPL matches were played – and Arsenal and Liverpool produced mixed results. The former beat Fulham 4-0, while the latter drew 0-0 with Hull.

So now that the football season is over – all my three teams that I support didn’t fare well at all. Celtic is first runner-up, Arsenal is second runner-up and Liverpool, well… the less said the better! Dare I hope that the next season is going to be better for these three clubs? Yes, I do! I DO, I DO, I DO!
