Malaysia Mourns

Posted by M ws On Friday, August 22, 2014 0 comments

Today, the nation will be receiving the remains of 20 victims of the ill-fated flight MH17.



The government thought it right to declare today a day of mourning and should be commended for making it possible for the remains to be accorded the respect and dignity they deserve as sons and daughters of our land.

Hand in hand with the families who lost their loved ones on this flight, the King and his government will be at KLIA to receive the remains which will be accorded full military honours, after which they will be sent to their hometowns for burial.  

As much as families who lost their loved ones in this flight, the nation is coming together to share their grief and sorrow and to hope there will never be another MH17 tragedy in the years to come and that no family will go through or experience what these families are going through.
It is simply saddening for these families. Words cannot describe their loss. Their future is not the same anymore. Some will take time to come to terms with their loss while some of these families may never recover at all.  

Whatever it may be, the entire nation mourns as one for the families who have lost their loved ones on flight MH17.

We mourn with those who mourn though we cannot feel the real intensity of your pain and agony.

We empathise with your loss that is so cruel, barbarous, callous, hellish, inhuman, sadistic, vicious and unrelenting.

The victims did not deserve to die in such ruthless and pitiless circumstances.

They were looking forward to their coming here but the flight never arrived.

The news of the shooting down of MH17 was just shocking and unbelievable, but it happened.

They did not expect to die but they perished in a split second with no opportunity to say good-bye.

It will take time and the shedding of much tears for these families to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones which happened at a time when MH370 is still missing and the search is ongoing to find the plane at all costs.

I can only describe the tragic demise of the sons and daughters of our land in MH17 who never made it back home as sad, moving, grave, unfortunate, distressing, agonising, heart-rending, heart-breaking, painful, lamentable, tragic, upsetting, excruciating, vexatious, tearful, regrettable, mournful, sorrowful and anguishing to the extreme.

May the peace of God rest upon these families.

In the meantime, I hope the remains of the remaining victims will also make their way back home in due time.

The nation waits for their return as well. – August 22, 2014.

The Country Doctor

A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor.

At the first house a woman complains, ​
​'I've been a little sick to my stomach.'

The older doctor says,
'Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?'

As they left, the younger man said,
'You didn't even examine that woman? How'd you come to the diagnosis so quickly?

''I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash. That was what probably was making her sick.'

'Huh,' the younger doctor said. 'Pretty clever. I think I'll try that at the next house.'

Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She complained that she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, 'I'm feeling terribly run down lately.'

'You've probably been doing too much work at the office,' the younger doctor told her. 'Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps.'

As they left, the elder doctor said,
'I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, but how did you arrive at it?'

'I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed a man under the bed.'

Toilet Poetry for Smiles

Posted by M ws On 0 comments

Thanks to Mr TSK who shared this list of toilet poems...I am sharing this for laughs and have no intention of offending anyone..

The first one goes:

THE 'FUTURE' IS IN YOUR HAND, HOLD IT GENTLY'

Another one...
Here I lie in stinky vapor,
Because some idiot stole the toilet paper,

Shall I lie, or shall I linger,
Or shall I be forced to use my finger.

This one by a budding poet...

Here I sit..
Broken hearted
Tried to sh*t..
But only farted

Then the next guy comes along....

You're lucky
You had your chance
I tried to fart,
And sh*t my pants!

Third guy with some inspiration.....

I came here
To sh*t and stink,
But all I do
Is sit and think.

The 4th guy....

Some come here to sit and think,
Some come here to sh*t and stink,
But I come
here to scratch my balls ,
And read the bullsh*t on the walls.....

Then this guy from Singapore Fire Dept ....... (written high upon the wall)
If you can piss above this line, the Singapore Fire Department wants you.

Since the Ministry of Environment owns the toilets they have something to say too.....
We aim to please!
You aim too! Please!

And on the inside of a toilet door:..

Patrons are requested to remain seated throughout the entire performance.
And finally a restaurant owner took this aiming issue a step further.....
The hands that clean these toilets also make your food...please aim properly.
