The arrest and losing my premier virginity

After months of not touching the ‘forbidden’ issue, I have to make a slight switch today.

Just in case you don’t know, the so-called de-facto leader of the opposition has been arrested today due to sodomy charges. I have to say the manner of the arrest is pretty incredible. According to MalaysiaKini, the authorities went with 15 patrol cars and some SWAT team-like commandos to arrest him. Wow… is Anwar magneto or something? Not like he can fly and you need to shoot him down, can he?
I have quite a number of friends who do not really trust this I-will-lower-petrol-price dude. Many claimed he is a dangerous person but at the same time, they can't really explain why he is dangerous. Whatever it is, I have to say many support him simply because they don’t support the other. It’s a matter of either or.

And looks like they are going to lock up the seemingly infallible Raja Petra Kamaruddin tomorrow. Looks like the power-to-be is trying to clean up all the obstruction on the road. I wonder who will be next.

Looking at the trend of things, it is certainly not very wise to blog about such things anymore… better change topic…

Hmmm… Oh yeah, I attended a movie premier yesterday at Gardens thanks to
Suanie who was kind enough to offer me a ticket despite me submitting rather crappy entry in her haiku competition. As bloggers, the sponsors, Nokia, even threw in a dinner. It’s cool to be a blogger I must say.

It was my first so there goes my movie-premier virginity.

Anyway, I didn’t know they have to employ Rela personnel as guards and they actually used metal detectors to check us. Gee… we are just a bunch of bloggers and Nokia personnel and from what I can observe, most of us are actually teenagers and I do not recall anyone of us looking like terrorist. Also, I didn’t see any VIPs watching with us.

Oh, the premier was for The Dark Knight. It was a cool movie I must say though the visual effects towards the end were a bit too far fetched. Well, when you see it, you will know what I mean. Hats off to Heath Ledger for an excellent effort in portraying Joker. Personally I think he absolutely bulldozed past Christian Bale in terms of performance.

Now I am looking forward to Red Cliff and The Mummy (Tomb of the Dragon Emperor). I hope the streets will be safe and no riot or emergency or anything of that sort when the movies are out. Don’t do anything stupid ok!

It's an odd mash-up of topics you have here. But more so when you realize the tagline on the poster can be applied to BOTH topics:

"WELCOME TO A WORLD WITHOUT RULES."

Dark nights indeed.

I guess BN is trying to 'spring clean' b4 Hari Raya (i know its a bit away but they gotta prepare). Maybe their Raya be spoilt if the 'cleaning' if not done properly.

I went to the premier of Memoirs of a Geisha and it was all good until they put the second reel on backwards so that part not so good. LOL!

Kel said...

welcome to "Mafia"land.

suituapui said...

Phew! When I saw the title of the post, I thought, "What? He just lost his virginity?...Wait a minute! What's premier virginity? Is he talking about some OTHER place since he mentions THE arrest?"...What a relief when I found out it was just about going to a movie!!! Hahahahahahahaha!!!!

myop101 said...

Mcmercedez said...

Yah.. Actually not really safe to say anything about all these.. Those "perasan" people will think that we're a threat and later kena..

By looking in another way, I think they dun even deserve a place in your blog man..

frostee said...

WHatever the case may be... we the people are screwed.

missironic said...

narrowband said...

I was looking forward to hear your views on the arrests of dsai and rpk. And of course, the manner it was conducted. And the 1-hour short of deadline. So many question marks in the people's heads but nobody seem to care. At the same time there's also the mystery of the missing PI.

jam said...

No need to watch joker in the cinema. We have a lot already around us day in day out (all the politicians).

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

I have never been to a movie premier. How different is that from a normal movie?

william wang said...

Coming to extreme...I don't think malaysia can do any worse if there is no government!

cc said...

I agree, many simply support him because they don't support the opposite. He certainly is lucked out that way. Even the newspaper here has reported the incident (like they always do, in negative tone). I just want the issue to get out of my newspapers. Fast.

I'm looking forward to The Mummy very much. Love Brandon Fraser. Very charismatic actor.

Akira said...

I was so wise to not even know about the debate until my colleague talked about it the next day. I'm very lacking behind or should I say rather apathetic to these. *LoL* That's why you'll never see such topics in my blog. ahhahhaaha.. I told him then that I read newspaper inside out(Sect.2, Metro, Star InTech) for The Star and back to front for Sun.

zewt said...

life for beginners - well said... soon, we will all need to be dark knights... we are to rule! hah!

Kel - hey... i only got 1 invite ler. yeah, i tot what happened, cant access your blog. dont need to worry too much lah.

CK - hahahahahaha... most certainly my friend.

xonar - hello... this is indeed mafialand. oppss... will i get arrested for saying this?

suituapui - aiyah... dont think serong lah... think straight first hehe...

myop101 - 'could have'?

anon aka Li - well, to me... he seems to be losing the plot at the moment.

huei - dont want dont want... increase increase :P

zewt said...

u-jean - did u like 'hero'? i think red cliff would be better.

zewt said...

missironic - feel good... hehe... but thanks to suanie lah.

narrowband - honestly, i no longer have any interest in all these... all the talking should stop already, it's time to act... for those with balls...

jam - hahaha... that's so damn true!

purple-mushroom - it's free... there are reporters... and ppl come and take your pics... and for bloggers... free food :P

william wang - that is true... sadly sadly true... sigh.

cc - why want it to get out from your newspaper? hmmmm....

Akira - hahaha... i read papers from behind... in fact, i only read the behind part... sports only. the rest are all propaganda craps.

bongkersz said...

sigh.. should stop talking already.. we want some actions :) oh, do not have to worry much lah, we are just 'cikurat' (small ikan bilis..), nobody cares what you write, probably never even make a dent since so many shun away from reading those kind of posts :P

i've been to few movie premieres, some have very tight security, they confiscate your handphone, cameras bla bla that they think shouldn't be allowed (Indiana Jones) some let you in just like that.. lenggang-lenggang kangkung.. (Kungfu Panda, Incredible Hulk)..

ps: bro, when your new site is up and running?

pinknpurplelizard said...

Sorry... I don't understand la. If that's cantonese then I have problem. Heh

zewt said...

bongkersz - bro... let me settle down my health stuff first :)

pinknpurplelizard - oh, you're not chinese? sorry... it means that when you wanna eliminate something, cut the root.
