Woke up happy (rather late) today after the 3 hour long call with Mr K. And a heady morning, too after yesterday of caffein overdose.

The office had just received a Coffee Maker which the staff and I were more than happy to shop for ground coffee which we did and successfully assembled the machine and drank the dark liquid like there was no tomorrow...

But to my rude surprise I'm not lamenting over Pak Lah (which his 'mistakes' now seems so juvenile) but to our former premier.

I am flabbergasted, shocked, (though it was expected) and disgusted with the news brought by Ian Chin J.

Boot camps for judges.
Threats from Chedet.

If the allegations are proven to be true, the foundation of trust in our judiciary would crumble down. just. like. that.

(Not that mistrusting judiciary is such a novelty nowadays, hm?)

The Executives. The Judiciary. The Legislative.
Not TheExecutiveJudiciaryLegislative.

Muhammad Kamil Awang J in the case of Harris Mohd Salleh v The Returning Officer, Ismail Majin & Ors [2001] 3 CLJ 161 said:

“The only guide to a man is his conscience, the only shield to his memory is the rectitude and the sincerity of his action. In my view, it is an insult to one’s intelligence to be given a directive over the phone that these petitions should be stuck off without a hearing, and above all, it is with prescience conscience that I heard these petitions. God has given me the strength and fortitude, as a lesser mortal, to act without fear or favour, for fear of a breach of oath of office and sacrifice justice, and above all to truly act as a judge and not a “yes-man”.”

On one unrelated personal note.
Which made me flabbergasted too.

We dissed about other people without telling them our bad side. Normal, eh.
What private conversation it is when it involves third person. Normal too?

Then I don't want to be part of that normalcy.
