I am, what's that word, flabbergasted?....nonplussed? Simply put, I am devoid of words to describe this travesty. I am utterly speechless; numbed into dumbness to put it plainly. How in the name of heaven and whatever is holy can an assembly man whose annual remuneration is not even close to a million ringgit pay this colossal Rm8 million for this ostentatious abode to house his 11 children and in-laws. The Anandas, the Kwoks, and the Genting Lims are green with jealousy. They wracked their brains and brawn to build their empires and here is one railway gatekeeper slithering, in full throttle, into their league. Me jealous? No, just perplexed and utterly bewildered at his seeming ingenuity and good fortune. It has to be this, because two people who should be waking up and sitting up to notice this stellar ascendancy is, like me, numbed into dumbness. I just can't help but surmise that this is best-in-class highway robbery or like my old sea-dog friend, the Ancient Mariner would volunteer readily - buggery on the high seas. I rest my case and let the pictures spin their tales.
An ideal setting for a weekend tryst for bored and sex-starved business associates. And we are not privy to the underground bunkers to silence would-be whistle blowers or snoopy government agents into orgasmic compliance.
This reminds me of a bordello I had the good fortune to visit and sample its wares,along the Boston Common, courtesy of a free-spending, free-wheeling brother-in-law of an associate. But I must confess that the accoutrements were more modest than the above.
However, it was reported that he shed tears recounting the negative stories reported about his amassed wealth. We used to call this crocodile tears.
You don't have to be an Oscar winner to force out some tears. Sometimes tears are shed out of pure joy at an "achievement" or a good hood-wink. No? A hankie, close at hand, gives good effect for sure. But I don't buy this cockamamee bucket of swine swill! Would you?
But the big, strong and (friendly) ACA bought it hook, line and sinker. And they ain't about to do anything about it. Either they are waiting for instructions or were just told to mind their own business and go catch the small fry. Leave the big case to the AG or the self-appointed de facto minister of law.
The Agency may be portrayed as powerful but when you have no teeth, and therefore has no bite, best is to keep quiet or do
what most of our government agencies do.....go into relax mode and let the rest of the world go by.....comforted by the well rehearsed "I did not know" or "Nobody told me" or the piss-de-resistance: The NST and the STAR did not report this....so it can't be true!
But let this be known that the ACA is one body with dual functions.....depending on what the master prompts. Kidnap wife and children of snitches. Return their families only when they revise their snitching report.
So when the lying minister below assures whistle-blowers that they will be protected by a non-existing Act, just remember the picture above.
Some of us are born loud-mouths, but others acquire this odious talent, but lying is definitely abominable.....such that the more you lie, the longer the tale.
So, be cautious, many who walk the corridors of power have split personalities.....you can know them by now because goats bleat and wolves don't.
We are often assailed by the expression - a double-headed snake. This specie we can handle. Just grab the tail and simulate a whip lash and that breaks the snakes spine, thus rendering its two heads impotent.
But beware of the specie above....they have heads on both ends, thus their versatility and deadliness.
And when you get conned by this witness protection farce (even if it is enacted). This is what will happen to you, big time.
