Just to make a second post -- 22nd April 06

seeing that Im now being accused of the very inactive site, so here is a post just for the heck of it, just to keep this going/moving etc whatever its suppose to be called.
although I do have something to say...a good friend has returned from Aus yayyy! Im sure there will be more about him in the coming days......
but for now, lets talk a lil politics shall we? I was in taxi today and there was some radio talk show going on, and there comes this guy from Chart Thai party....forget his name....but anyway.....
they had their annual general meeting yesterday, and talked about all sorts of stuff...i wont go into details, but what i found really hilarious one point he says......we no longer have a platform to voice our ideas...our platform belong in parliament....but now we dont have that.
i wonder if the guy paused to think? His party decided to boycott the election! thats why you arent in parliament you silly! so stop whining about no platform, dont complain about something you did by choice! sheesh!
anyway, lets keep this one short. maybe more at some point...hopefully on some other topic....perhaps if someone motivated me enough :p
for now...have a good day........night.....morning.....

Elections day --2nd April 2006

Seeing that Im often alleged to have an interest in politics, I thought it might be somewhat apt to start my first day of Blog about politics. And what more fun topic than Thailand's general elections this year.
for those of you unaware, the Thai PM called elections a month ago, but the major opposition parties decided to boycott. (how truly undemocratic!!)
as you read further you will realise im not a big fan of the so-called Democrats party (as the only democratic way about them is the name of their party!)
think about it.... the beauty of democracy lies in the nature of having opposition to provide a check on the government. but what do they do? instead of trying to build and make the opposition stronger, they sit back and hand over the power to government. how very smart.
anyway, for those interested in the results, read the papers :p Im not giving reports here. just personal opinion. and no not saying Thaksin is the ultimate mr right either. but name one politician whos been in power and not used it to their own benefit? the trouble with Thaksin is that his business was already high profile even before he came into power.
ok enough politics. shall we move on to weather now?? feel free to comment on the state of hot hotter hottest. you may even vote on which you want to classify today, and the biggest vote wins :)
thats it for now....unless i feel the urge to share something else again. then you might have a second entry for the day :)
hmmm how did I not mention chocolate on my blog? Ill do one on ms chocaholic soon. chocolates deserve a special place :)
