We Can Always Dream

After Barack Obama's historic appointment to the Oval Office, our dear Prime Minister Badawi said that "It is possible for anyone from a minority group to be a nation’s leader, even in Malaysia".

I only have 2 questions: What has he been smoking, and where can I get some?

Has the PM not heard of the case involving the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS)? In a nation where a non-Bumiputra cannot even lead a large state corporation without certain quarters getting heart palpitations, who's kidding who when the PM said that a non-Bumi will be allowed to lead the entire country?

The United States of America took over 200 years to reach this stage. Maybe we should wait for year 2258 and try again.

This is what I thought of when the PM said that, I think our mind are some how connected. LOL

Hey there, Zemien!

You'll certainly not know me, but I stumbled upon your blog after googling Body Jam. Love the 'Body' series of classes - and currently I'm thinking of trying out to become a Body Jam instructor, too. :)

Would you happen to have any advice for this newbie? I was never an instructor prior to this, but hey, there's a first time for everyone, yeah? :D And it looks pretty awesome. Is there an audition or anything? :) Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!

Re: Badawi - one word: Hypocrisy. : /

Cheers,

kimmy: There's a lot of advice in the 2 leading Les Mills forums - Group Fitness and Les Mills. There are a few posts on training tips!

Glad u r planning to go for it. Yes, everyone has to start somewhere and I just took the plunge and came out alive :P

Talk to your gym's Group Fitness Manager abt going for training. Some gyms require auditions while I didn't need it.

Leave a comment if u need more info! :) Happy Jamming!
