RUMINATION: M dnight Voices from AFAR

Since pushing myself into cyber space some eleven years ago, following the trail blazed by sifu Jeff Ooi, now elevated to a Penang member of Parliament, YL started his humble abode named after mentor Max Ehrmann's fave poem (fave refers to MINE, knot necessary Max's, but we writHers take liberties OK!:)) Desiderata (of Happiness).

I also nicked my cyber abode MIdnight Voices as I pen best at the midnight hour, especially poems, and several of my ER emailed me started off "Dear miss Desi....", but I don't mind, especially some added "est to the dearie....This was even more beguiling because I later used riddling language whom one ER from Ipoh named DDC, da desi code, because lazywans have to rack/wrack/wreck their brains to understand what I wrote, and often still missi g the msg, which I like.

E.g. I answered one mGf jouno-blogger -- no name please we newsdog/hound are shy-shy wan, unlike our neighbour, Singaporeans, often referred to in negative delight as "kiasu/kiasi" and disdained by MalSians hating their guts blazing theirname from afar -- buddy who aRsEked: " Understood except for BYTES2..." after reading my prior post referring to"....though I am not a lawyer, just a humble newsdog-BUMmer who barks often, sometimes BYTES2!"

My SMS reply: " Ddc, da desi code, word play pray ala phuaCHEWkang lol wordsmithry is newsdog's craft, yes!"

The above "long" intro is mainly for the benefit of new readers to my blog which celebrated 11 years anni on the Ides of March. If you dare ask what is the Ides...of March or Miss April, I am tempted to rebutT: "Hey, get the here out of Hell!"

If you wonder Y Desi left out a letter from M dnight in the post title, I am doing that to call your attention to the fact that readers must be ALERT to be able to read in betwin the words or the lines, especially about politics. Here/hear, you try any of the VOWELS to fill the blank space, your will be RIGHT in 1 out of 5 attempts, simple arithmetics, Knot maths. OK! 

So far, newscomers have gotten a taste of what DDC or wordsmithry is awe about Cos "It's only WORDS, and words are all I have, to take your heart away..."

So I googled,  and the first entry under "midnight voices" surprised Desi, viz: an acapella group, but they don't welcome Desi after I filled the enquiry form!
