You're probably surprised to see something posted here for a change. But there's a good reason for this posting.
Walski is humbled by the fact that myAsylum has been included in the blog link section of Fake Malaysia News, a local Onion-like satirical website. This is something he stumbled upon earlier today.
He is also humbled by the fact that this blog hasn't been updated since May of this year! That's almost 5 months of no new posting. Which, for a blog, is well within the realm of unacceptable.
These days, myAsylum's activity is centered around the blog's Facebook page, as it is more convenient to post stuff there in a hurry. And unfortunately these days Walski is always in a hurry.
In any case, Walski thought he'd write this short post to thank Fake Malaysia News, and to all who've stuck with myAsylum all these years.As much as he'd love to write more often, Walski can't. And it's not out of not having enough material. Malaysia's gotten so messed up, stuff to write about has become a new natural resource.
(excuses for not writing, and more, in the full post)
Ever since GE13, the UMNO & Friends government that got re-elected is back with a vengeance. Not a day goes by that there isn't some fuck-upery or other that makes the news. So much so that Walski is sometimes exasperated with the bullshit that Malaysia has become.
The latest example of the kind of idiots we have in office: Zahid Hamidi defending the IGP over the 44 missing guns, which the latter claims did not likely fall into the hands of criminals, but instead fell into the sea.
Yes folks, this country is run by FUCKING MORONS. Headed by an absentee landlord Prime Minister who's hither and yon, everywhere but at home where he should be, doing his fucking job.
And given enough time, Walski would have written a heck of a lot.
It's always about not having enough time, isn't it. The 24 hours in a day really gets used up fast, Walski feels. But then again, that's the way it is when one has a business to run.
Hence this quickie post, just so that y'all don't forget that before there was Facebook, there was this blog. It's still alive, and hopefully once business settles somewhat, there will be more posts.
Incidentally, Walski conducted a survey not too long ago, announced via the Facebook page and on his Twitter account. One of the things he asked was how often you thought this blog should be updated. Most of you answered that myAsylum should have at least a weekly post.
Thanks for the feedback. Walski will certainly try to accommodate.
In the meantime, for the most up-to-date goings on - or shenanigans more likely - the best place to keep up is still on myAsylum's Facebook page.
Walski will be back to update this blog more often. Or at least die trying...
