This is truly BluesMonday, and Desi, being very tired, is also feeling very cynical.
So my dear EsteemedReaders who are not staemed up for some Cynicalitis, please STOP reading here.
To others too curious to know what this tired mind is going to rant about, read on, but don't blame me for putting you into a cynic mode.
Life in Malaysia is full of flood waters nowadays, so what's another drop of cynicism ... frankly even this normally critical-cum-logical (IMHO which you're allowed to beg to differ and come at me...) scribne doesn't see the connection.
But what the hell, one can be excused/accused of goin wrong sometimes, yes, my indulgent fellow Malaysians?

Cops bust wild student party
KUALA LUMPUR: A group of partying university students, among them children of prominent businessmen, were picked up by police at a hotel penthouse after they became unruly.
In the 4.30am incident at Jalan Conlay yesterday, Dang Wangi police, who were alerted by the hotel management, had to break down the penthouse door which was locked and latched from inside.
District OCPD Asst Comm Kamal Pasha Jamal said they nabbed 74 Universiti Malaya and Universiti Teknologi Mara students and found Ecstasy pills strewn on the floor and in the toilet.
“Some students tried to dispose of the evidence by flushing Ecstasy pills down the toilet bowl,” ACP Kamal Pasha said, adding that most of the students were drunk.
The students had booked the penthouse on the 22nd floor of the hotel to celebrate a birthday party for one of their friends.
Nine males and six females tested positive for drugs after police conducted urine tests on all the students.
ACP Pasha Jamal said the hotel management had earlier repeatedly warned the students to quieten down but the students ignored them.
“The commotion began around 1am when the incessant noise from the party prompted other hotel guests to complain,” he said, adding that the hotel contacted the police after students jammed the lock of the penthouse door.
Those who tested positive for drugs were taken to the Dang Wangi police headquarters and detained.
In a separate operation earlier, three Achenese were arrested for possessing 65.5g of syabu when the district police team raided a service apartment in Jalan Haji Hussein.
ACP Kamal Pasha said police also screened 63 people who were in the other rooms. Police caught two locals wanted for theft and cheating and 17 foreigners for immigration offences.
I've highl;ighted several points for my ER to ponder. I may save my breath by commenting on most, but exspend some on just ONE salient feature - that the party goers were university students celebrating a mate's birthday at a hotel penthouse and some -- so lucky - have prominent businessmen as their parents...
What Desi wonders is will we Rakyat see firm action being taken regardless of their connections?
OR will we see some UMNO/MCA?MIC Youth leaders answering SOS calls from these prominent businessmen to "please ccome to my aid..."
Have you forgotten THAT party raid at a Subang Jaya karaoke lounge recently when an UMNO biog guin rushed to help out a "Datuk" firned ... or was it some Politician's wigwig' political secretary who was cuntveniently in the vicinity and like any goode citrizne, camy by to give the Police a helping hand.
Penthouse, ecstasy, drunk and drugged -- greta generation of university students. In our days, you would be giving tuiotion or doing part-time jobs to earn to buy those text and refrence books.
But of course we must blame the moon, the star and the darkest night were wern't born into "prominent businessmen" families, yes?
Bless thee, YoungOnes, tyou had the secuirty of the penthopuse.
Other couples get apprehended in broaf daylight and charged with wat? "close proximity" in the park nigh the KLC4! "4" in Kantonis sounds like "see", which crudely translated, means DIE-lah!
4ya, bluesfriends, 4gift me for my munda'e rant?!
