The night before 112 I was so pumped up that sleep was difficult after a seafood feast at Jalan Alor with Boom, Rodi, Lillian, Bill, Nordin Manan, Sharom, Duke and Bruce. The latter two were totally smashed when they joined us back at Classic Inn. They were warming up to 112 at
Bitch Beach Club and Thai Club, so they claimed. Howeve, all
claimed that I behaved myself…..keeping to only 2 beers!
At 1130 we set out for KL112. The heat and humidity after a slight drizzle really drained me but seeing the wave upon wave of participants filtering into Merdeka Stadium was inspiring! It was tsunamic! THIS IT IS!

I had numerous SMS asking if I was OK and where was I seated. I was 10o’clock across the Grand Stand on the VI side and told them to remain where they are as I am well taken care of by my minders, Boom, Esther Lee, Claire, Duke,Rodi, Bruce and Wong. INI KALI LAH!
In appreciation for those who could not be at 112 and those off-shore Malaysians, who have no access to the Historic Peaceful Uprising, here is a LINK to Malaysiakini live feed. To Malaysians holding their own peace rally in Jordon, Sydney and Auckland, WE SALUTE YOU PATRIOTS.
JUST TWO COMMENTS FROM THE HEART
Guna Otak Sikit: This is an historic day - a ‘Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah' day. The rakyat are standing up to a government.
Remember the deaths of Ahmad Sarbaini, A Kugan, Aminulrasyid Amzah, Teoh Beng Hock, Altantuya Shaariibuu, the corruption of the Scorpene submarines, Bank Bumiputera, the cincins and the Birkins, the RM40 million Sabah case, the National Feedlot Corporation, Puspahanas, the illicit outflow of funds, the cheapskate weddings using the rakyat's money, the Election Commission (EC) behaving like an Umno division, the endless tolls, the poor quality cars on the roads, the Automated ‘Enrichment Scandal' (AES), the piratisation of the country's assets (ports, postal service, highways, water, sewerage service, power), and the misuse of Petronas funds to bail out individuals, etc.
Endless list of scandals. This is the day of the rakyat's power.
3rdEye: I participated in Bersih 2.0 and Bersih 3.0 but stayed at home yesterday although I was very free. Why? I felt Pakatan has to get their act right. They must not abuse the goodwill of the rakyat like the BN has all this while.
They must not think that we hate BN means that we have to love Pakatan blindly. I love Nurul Izzah Anwar, Rafizi Ramli, Tony Pua and Mohamad Sabu, but I dislike Azmin Ali and the Ngeh cousins.
Basically, I feel that for the KL112 rally, they have not put in enough effort and expect great success. I don't want to help breed such a culture.
