International MisFired


The last IMF/World Bank Conference was hosted by Dubai...yes Dubai..in 2003. Not surprisingly...there was ABSOLUTELY NO public demonstrations at all. The activists would have died of heat stroke! Anyway, the authorities actually erected an air con tent for those who wanted to beat their chests and cry out loud. NO ONE used it. I thought the ranting expats would have seize the occasion to complain about the traffic, weather...etc whatever..lol
16,000 delegates will arrive on the shore of our little country Singapore...tomorrow 10 September 2006 for a 10 days NON event. Like Dubai, a designated indoor (out of bound to the locals)hall has been designated for the traditional demonstrations by civil groups.It's really a no brainer why Singapore was chosen...public demonstrations are prohibited and press freedom are restricted so that the delegates can enjoy their free holiday without any hassle. Issues discussed will be mere lip service.
Apparently, it was reported a young activist arrived earlier..and she put herself in a tiny chicken cage in front of a KFC joint...protesting against cruelty to animals. She was clothed only in a tiny yellow bikini!...lol Subsequently she was given the boot...escorted out of the country!

I pray for more of such hilarious moments...during the 10 days NON event.

Happily, you are always able to laugh.
I don't understand all, just I understand that it is difficult to exprim opinion for the minority.

The blog was so changeless ! I was a bit anxious, you're so often explaining to us how Dubai may be dangerous, I was wondering where my frail kitten may be hidden all the time I had no news of her !

PS: What Balushi is he meaning with: "you don't have a boyfriend' ?

BF: ah-ha, you are alive, it was very quiet on here for a few days. I am quite sure that it is no co-incidence that the IMF chooses places like Dubai and Singapore, it must be nice for them to go to places where there aren't any screaming loonies throwing things at them!
