(The Boss) New Year, New Beginning

I never thought I'll restart this damn thing, what with RR leaving JalanRiong. Who is going to write this blog? Me?

But it's a new year and a new beginning. I am beginning to miss my frequent columns and editorials. These days it's more hands-off. In fact, eh, who is in charge now?

The plan to ambush JO and RB is underway. I would loved to have turned up in court, but the damn lawyers said "No".

No?

I'm paying your filthy fees, Mr big-shot-lawyer.

Anyway I told Mr big-shot lawyer, his runny-nose son and their guy who writes and signs on my behalf that they had better not lose my case. All hell will flood like Johor and it's their Singapore's fault.

They did a f***job last week. First we didn't get an injunction for RB, now we have to cease and desist too for JO?

Didn't I say, fix the judges? Where do you think this is, Mr big-shot-lawyer - Old Bailey?

Ooohhh. Big Boss called. Tonight we get to vote on which Ministers to chuck. Oh joy. He said there will be the durians-in-a-boat treat again. Oh double joy!

Soon Tun's men will live the sad poverty-stricken life of a non-Minister.

As I said. New Year, new beginning.

The Boss (Wednesday, 15 Dec)

The massage was good last night. It's been a while since I had someone pummel my back. Then this Chinese fella can 'realign'-ed some more.

"Mercedes-Benz also must realign one. Balance-lah," he said.

Tried to do a deal with this doctor. One feature article on him for one-year's worth of massages and realigning. No can do ... cash, cash... he said, glaring at me. I thought I could feel my back twitching, so I paid up immediately. Bloody stingy fella #$$%^#$%

So a New Me walked into the office this morning. Beamed at everyone and then sent rookie to check out the Cabinet meeting today. The rookie has been instructed to see who would wince if he mentioned he was from NST. Then we'll know who's behind Kelab Maya Umno's attack. It is time for new additions and new rules to my hate-list.

But pray tell, who on earth would be so mean? If you prick me, do I not bleed? If you out-scoop me, do I not scream? If you don't reply to my SMS immediately, do I not weep? I have feelings too, you know. All I want is to be loved like that Malaysian Idol girl.

Speaking of which, KTK ain't feeling the lurve these days. Hehe... Yah, "Let's Stop This Rot" (Headline). See RR ... English need not be verbose.

Note to self:
(1) Talk to Big Boss. Convince him KMU is another branch of KMM and they all use handphones.
(2) Redo hate-list. Numero uno crime is not replying to my text messages. Rude bastards.

The Boss (Tuesday, 14 Dec)

They say that your back will hurt if people are out there to 'pukau' you.

My back has been hurting like hell since the weekend. Feels like someone landed a sledgehammer on my neck. I curse that 6-footer Mat Salleh who thought he was so cool at the club, flailing his tentacles, and hit me on the head instead. A-hole.

White men can't dance.

But I'm getting a little paranoid. RI, who still can't make a decent cuppa, told me this story of pukau-this, pukau-that. Seems that that Anwar fella also kena pukau. That's why they didn't want to send him to Munich.

Then there was a buzz on the news floor a few days ago. Some rookie decided to surf into Kelab Maya Umno found an online poll on whether I should be replaced.

83% said yes. @#$$%^#$^%&

There was also an article accompanying the poll, "Don't let Jalan Riong sully the PM's image".

Nasty nasty internet. And you wonder why we decent, hard-working news people want to take these online bloggers, commentators, fako-journo down.

Need a teh-tarik and panadol .... Time to figure out who is behind this ...

Note to self:-
(1) Text RI - bungkus satu teh tarik kurang manis.
(2) Text NO - charge these KMU fellas
(3) Memo to Secretary - Make appointment with Dr. J for massage; Dr. HD for anti-pukau treatment
