This writer is a proud Furongknight and I have fondly nicked my hometown a modern ***Peyton Place -- in the olde days you took a gal-next-door for just one outing, and within a day the town was abuzz naming you and that lucky/unlucky gal as a couple. Ttthhhrrreee decades later -- after Mia Farrow as Allison Mackenzie (1964-1966) and Ryan O'Neal as Rodney Harrington, do you remember? -- grew up from B&W into more adult coloured roles -- Seremban is still much Peyton-Placesque except the gossips start later, like 24 X SE7EN? Teenagers and adults today are distracted by Internet cafes, Hotels -- like in friendly Muar-lah! -- and yes, 7ELEVENs!
***I read the original novel by Grace Metalious, Peyton Place had already been made into a major motion picture. Anyone have a copy I can borrow wit' no intention of returning it? Fair exchange for my book --
I must dig up the dog-eared copy to lend thee, or auction at eBoi:) now that moo_t stll has not reverted wit'20mil for just face-lifted My Blue Heaven -- and in the 1970s,the happenings depicted were considered more scandalous than recently forced-to-resign Hell -- oops, Health! -- Minister's dalliance over an unlucky sexcapade.
But I am proud we gave the world -- okay, make it Malaysia! -- the Furong Siew Pau, Ngau Nam fun-d, and yes, an ass of a poet-pirate, Desi fool of errata or erotika! And one more, first astronut into space riding on a Russian craft, which our generous leaders are now considering buying for a song -- RM500million. (To Petronas it's a song okay! Or small change when annual profits, net or netted!, amount to a cool
RM50billion. And they say pump rizes would soon be raised because world oil prices are rising,and that Sdr Anwar Ibrahim and YL Chong are talking cock that the pump prices should be falling instead. YES, BECAUSE MALAYSIA IS A NET EXPORTER OF OIL, AND OUR OILS ARE OF A HIGHER (PREMIUM) GRADES -- THEY ARE CALLED "SWEETS" NOT FOR NOTHING! -- YOU BN MORONS, NINCOMPOOPS, INCLUDING BIG TALKING DPM TEAVCHING OTHERS TO STICK TO A MORAL CODE OFF BEHAVIOUR. It's like Crabs teaching the Homo sapiens to walk straight, No? Please, dear ER, treat it as a rhetorical or non-rhetorical question, why do I care?
Now turn to page N6 of the People's Paper
which I bought a copi for some"monitoring" function!:)

Co-ed school it is not
SEREMBAN: It is supposed to be a co-ed school but boys and girls at SMK Senawang Jaya near here are not allowed to mix.
They are not allowed to study in the same classroom or eat at the same table in the canteen. In fact, a new block was built to ensure their classrooms were located away from each other.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, who was clearly incensed by the school’s decision to segregate its students, has asked for a report from the state Education Department on how this could have happened.
“This is very much against the policy of the Education Ministry. A co-ed school is meant to be a co-ed school. Headmasters cannot decide to have different policies for their schools,” he said.
Centre of controversy: SMK Senawang Jaya in Seremban has created a storm by not allowing boys and girls to mix despite it being a co-ed school.
Mohamad said if parents wished to send their children to only all-boys or girls’ schools, they should be given the option to decide so.
State Education director Abdullah Mohammad said SMK Senawang Jaya had not been given permission to segregate its students.
Abdullah, who met the school's officials after being told of the matter on Wednesday, said he had directed its senior assistant to ensure the policy was rescinded immediately.
“In fact, I was surprised when told that there were different walkways for male and female students. This cannot be allowed,” he said.
The school headmaster Muhammad Amir YM Shariff was away performing the haj in Mecca.
(1)Mr Menteri Besar: Show the moron head a "Show Cause" letter to be handed over by the deputy head at the KLIA as he returns fromhis pilgrimage, to show the Education Ministry means business. The deputy headmaster should not bethe one holding the "baby"!
(2) You are surprised, Mr State Education director Abdullah? -- Mohammad ... "when told that there were different walkways for male and female students."
All this while, there are many Little Napoleons at the local councils who have enjoyed media coverage -- thanks to Citizen Nades and some nosey-parker Bloggers! -- and now such Napoleons in the school sector are being exposed, down in my hometown, I am so ashamed! -- and you are surprised?
NegaraKu is suffering a systemic breakdown because many government "officials" are surprised by shenanigans committed by Litle Napoleons -- Here, There, Everywhere -- and now my dear State, Negri Sembilan, is following the path of neighbouring most advanced State in Malaysia. Port Klang state assemblyman Zakaria Mad Deros enjoyes immunity because a "bigger" Little Napoleon whoh happens also to be the Menteri Besar is under his big "thumb", bigger than Zak's RM7-10million "small house".
ARE ALL THESE little napoleons following the example of the Supreme Napoleon escounced in the lush greenery called Putrajaya?
Dear ER, your guess is just as goode as mine. I am just a little writHer down in Furong using my "lastik" sling taking potshots at the birds at Taman Senawang Jaya.
The lastik won't be able to bring down the B'g, B'd Wolf who visited from Koala Lumpuh, so help us God/Allah from more of the same such bigots! ~~ Amen/Amin
