One Out

Kota Bharu has changed quite a bit. A lot of construction work was going on. I also noticed a lot of big new bungalow houses on previously paddy fields.

My mother-in-law wanted to buy some stuff and I took them to the place I knew had the best choice, the Central Market (also known as the Siti Kadhijah market). Most of the traders are still women, most of them wearing a lot of gold. It is no surprise as the Ketantanese women are known to be very enterprising. In fact the region was once ruled by a Queen (one and only in Malaysia) called Cik Siti Wan Kembang (17th century roughly at the end of the 14th century). However, I don’t know much about her other than that she was famous for her legendary beauty and wisdom.

Anyway, we were able to get some great bargains on batik stuff - shirts, kaftans, baju kurung (much, much cheaper than in KL).

Will post up pics later.

I also paid a long overdue visit to the dentist at the Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM), Kubang Kerian, where my dad works. He had already fixed an appointment for me and my wife. It's always nice to have links at the right places.

A visit to the dentist is always scary and this was no exception, more so as I needed minor surgery to remove 2 misaligned Wisdom teeth. My condition was a bit serious, as the teeth were partially horizontal and entrapped within the gums – a condition termed "impacted."
The doctor decided that it would be better if I removed one tooth at a time. We decided on the one on the right side, which looked more serious on the X-ray as it was pushing into the neighbouring teeth. To remove it required an incision into the gums and then removal of the portion of jaw bone that lies over the tooth.

The entire process started with injections to the gums to desensitize the entire right jaw. The tooth was extracted in small sections but I couldn’t see anything as my eyes were covered all the time but I could still hear the drill and what ever stuff he was using to cut the teeth (going wirrrrrr) and pulling. The doctor was quite skilled as I didn’t feel much pain. I was quite relived when it was finally over. It took around 15 minutes but seemed like an hour. The doctor stitched up the wound and then gave me some cotton to bite on. I was given paracetamol, a medicine for swelling and a mouthwash.

The left side was numb for quite some time but not for long as the pain came back in waves. The paracetamol helped. The first day, I didn’t take the swelling medicine. Big mistake. I woke up the next day looking as if I had stuffed an entire Big Mac on the right side of my face. I still have some swelling now but its much beter and I can feel the hollow portion where my tooth used to be with my toungue.

My wife also had her teeth checked and 2 fillings done. She was unhappy that the fillings were not white but grey (amalgam) coloured.

Anyway, the great part is that we saved several hundred ringitt. A procedure like mine that would cost about RM1000 at a private clinic in KL.

I will be going back again for the next one on the 6th of next month. Ouch.

Oooh, Pasar Siti Khadijah.. went there before, yup, agree that it's mostly women, and they're all very friendly too! Not only that, when I was there, the womenfolk, seeing that I was chinese, promptly spoke in fluent Hokkien to me! I was quite amazed at that

Program on the emergence of civilization.

"14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind.
13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa.
None from the sub-Saharan African continent. "
And disfavor.

They point out Africans’ failed attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it's applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization.

The roots of racism are not of this earth.

Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals.

The North American continent had none. Now 99% of that population is gone.

AIDS in Africa.

Organizational Heirarchy/Levels of positioning.
Heirarchical order, from top to bottom:

1. MUCK - perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as "god"
2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management
3. Evil/disfavored aliens - runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere

Terrestrial management/positioning:

4. Chinese/egyptians - this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds
5. Romans - The seamless transition between Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar may be a clue alluding to a partnership.
6. Mafia - the real-world 20th century interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality
7. Jews, corporation, women, politician - Evidence exisits to suggest mafia management over all these groups.

Movies foreshadowing catastrophy
1985 James Bond View to a Kill 1989 San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake.

Our society gives clues to the system in place. We all have heard the saying "He has more money than god." There is also an episode of the Simpsons where god meets Homer and says "I'm too old and rich for this."

This is the system on earth because this is the system everywhere.

20 cent/hour Chinese labor, 50 cents for material.
An $80 sweater costs less than a dollar; homage, tribute kicked upstairs vindicates the creative accounting.

I don't want to suggest the upper eschelons are evil and good is the fringe. But these individuals become wealthy exploiting those they hurt.

They have made it abundantly clear that doing business with evil (disfavored) won't help people. They say only good would have the ear, since evil is struggling for survival, and therefore only the favored could help.

The clues are there which companies are favored and which are disfavored, but they conceal it very hard because it is so crucial.

I offer an example of historical proportions:::

People point to Walmart and cry "anti-union".
Unions enable disfavored people to live satisfactorly without addressing their disfavor. This way their family's problems are never resolved. Without the union they would have to accept the heirarchy, their own inferiority.
Unions serve to empower.
Walmart is anti-union because they are good. They try to help people address and resolve their problems by creating an environment where there are fewer hurdles.

Media ridicule and lawsuits are creations to reinforce people's belief that Walmart is evil in a subsegment of the indistry dominated by the middle and lower classes.
Low-cost disfavored Chinese labor is utilized by corporate america to maximize margins. They all do it. Only WalMart gets fingered because they are the ones who help, and those who seek to create confusion in the marketplace want to eliminate the vast middle class who have a real chance and instead stick with lower classes who may not work otherwise. So they dirty him up while allowing the others to appear clean.

The middle class is being deceived. They are being misled into the unfavored, and subsequently will have no assistance from their purchases with corporate america.

The coining of the term "Uncle Sam" was a clue alluding to just this::Sam Walton's WalMart is one of few saviors of the peasant class.

They desire a system based on duality:::good and evil. They seek to set up a system of two participants and assign them polar opposites:::
Coke and Pepsi
Ford and GM
WalMart and Target
Energizer and Duracell
Coors and Budweiser
Republican and Democrat
The list goes on:::
AMD and Intel
Microsoft and Apple
Lowes and HomeDepot
Sam's Club and Costco
WellsFargo and BofA
Borders and Barnes&Noble
And, when there are multiple participants, they try to eliminate the third:::
Chrysler - opposition produced a compromise - the 80s government bailout
Kmart - Kmart has it bad and should be out of business.
Miller - Steps are being taken to reduce them to a low-cost beer.

Amercia is a country of castoffs, rejects. Italy sent its criminals, malcontents.
Between the thrones, the klans and kindred, they decided who they didn't want and acted, creating discontent and/or starvation.
The u.s. is full of disfavored rejects. It is the reason for the myriad of problems not found in European countries. As far as the Rockafellers and other industrialists of the 19th century go, I suspect these aren't their real names. I suspect they were chosen to go and head this new empire.

Royalty is the correct way to organize a society. Dictatorships and monarchies are a reflection of the antient's hierarchical organization.
Positions go to those who have favor with the rulers, as opposed to being elected.
Elections bring a false sense of how the world is. Democracy misleads people.
Which is why the disfavored rejects were sent to the shores of America::To keep them on the wrong path.

Jewsus Christ is a religious figure of evil. He teaches of a begnign, forgiving god when quite the opposite is true.
The seperatist churches formed so they could capture the rest of the white people, keeping them worshipping the wrong god.
And now they do it to disfavored people of color, Latinos and Asians, after centuries of preying upon them.

Since Buddism doesn't recongnize a god, the calls are never heard, and Asian representation is instead fully selected by the thrones.
Budda was the Asian's Jewsus Christ::: bad for the people. It was a clue they both emerged at the same time. Timing may be a clue alluding to ranking.

Simpson's foreshadowing::Helloween IV special, Flanders is Satan. "Last one you ever suspect."
"You'll see lots of nuns where you're going:::hell!!!" St. Wigham, Helloween VI:::missionary work, destroying cultures.
Over and over, the Simpsons was a source of education and enlightenment, a target of ridicule by the system which wishes to conceal its secrets.

The advent of the modern Christmas was a brilliant move. It creates a vested interest among those who would prefer the Church of Evil be destroyed::::
As goes the Catholic Church so goes the majority of annual retail sales.
The similarity between the names "Santa" and "Satan" is no coincidence.

Jews maim the body formed in the image of "god", and inflicted circumcision upon all other white people.
I think about how Jews (were used to) created homosexuality among Slavics, retribution for the Holocaust.
Then I think of the Catholic Church and its troubles.
What connection is here between Jews and the Catholic church???
If it is their sinister motives that’s behind the evil that is Jesus Christ are they being used at all?
Perhaps it is them who are pulling strings.
Their centuries of slavery in Egypt proves their disfavor.
For their suffering the Jew leaders were granted the right to prey on the up-and-coming Europeans to try to fix their problems with the ruling elite, a recurring aspect of the elite's methodology.
Jews were ostracised for a reason.

Retribution for the atomic bombs dropped on Japan, the Korean War got the disfavored United States into this socially depraved environment in the latter 20th century because we attacked an antient, revered peoples. Our continued presence keeps us in trouble.
When the disfavored americans attack the wrong people again, as they suggested they will, in Korea or elsewhere, they will pay dearly.

All peoples are ranked in terms of favor and disfavor. And when the disfavored abuse those with favor there is hell to pay.
All the groups mentioned throughout are necessary to justify the will of the managing species. They conceive a strategy, devise a plan yet need a way to implement it, and without these groups the managing species would be exposed in the course of execution. So, based upon their rank they are assigned goals to accomplish and are rewarded with favors.
