The Inauguration

So today’s THE day.

For “Hope” and “Change“. Or whatever they call it these days.

I wonder if he still has some Hussein left in him…

If You’re Out There

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

We’ve been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We’ve been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same
Then go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

No more broken promises
No more call to war
Unless it’s love and peace that we’re really fighting for
We can destroy hunger
We can conquer hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We’re joining hands today

Oh I was looking for a song to sing
I searched for a leader
But the leader was me
We were looking for the world to change
We can be heroes
Just go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

If you’re ready we can shake the world
Believe again
It starts within
We don’t have to wait for destiny
We should be the change that we want to see

If you’re out there
Ooooh
If you’re out there
And you’re ready now
Say it loud
Scream it out

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now

If you’re out there
If you’re out there
If you’re out there

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

P/S : The love of my life John Legend, performed this new single at the recent 2008 Democratic National Convention. The message is loud and clear, innit? (do apply to the current local politics, if you wish 😛)

And Johny baby has never failed to warm the cockles of my heart, <3<3<3

Dramarama

There’s just so much drama in Malaysian politics! I’ve been refreshing Malaysiakini every half an hour for updates on Bala’s SD. Takde life sungguh. But that’s what holidays are for anyway.:P

I couldn’t agree more with this particular excerpt from Michelle Yoon’s blog :

It’s not only about the men (Najib, Anwar, Pak Lah, RPK, Aziz Buyong, Bala, Musa Hassan, Abdul Gani Patail), the women (Altantuya, Rosmah, “Amy”, Norhayati) and the explosives (C4, of course) anymore.

It’s not just about them. It’s about us. It’s about how we understand the situation at hand. It’s about how we, as a society, will handle this issue. It’s about how we react.

It doesn’t matter if you support BN, or UMNO, or PAS, or Pakatan Rakyat, or just Anwar. It doesn’t matter, because this is a fall for us all. Yes, it has made Najib look bad, it has made the government look bad. But in the same breadth, it has made Malaysia look bad.

It is about Malaysia, about us as Malaysians. It is about how we take this fall, and how we will stand back up again. It’s about where we go from here.

Heads will roll, whether we the Rakyat like it or not.

God save Malaysia. Nuff said.

On the other hand, a certain Malaysian blogger still has her sense of humour intact. Check out Lily‘s take on the latest debacle in Malaysian politics.

Damn funny wei.
