The Adventure of Our Local 'Hero'



I've been following the series 'Heroes' for a couple of months now. Damn, I enjoy it! Some people have gone to the extent of downloading the series from the foreign networks so that they can claim to have watched it earlier than those who only rely on our favourite sattelite TV channel.

The cheats!

Yes, not only have we followed the series religiously, we all have our favourite characters, based either on their personality, powers or general hottiness (Claire - Yummy). But the show is just an adaptation of the comic book industry pheneomenon. They're just fiction... or is it?

I have been recently informed that we here in M'sia have our very own 'Hero'. Oh yes, we do. I shite you not.

His name is Mokh.

Now Mokh is an ordinary bloke, your average family man, nothing remotely spectacular about his social life. He works a 9-5 job just like your average joe. But one thing different about Mokh that he is indeed special.

Very, very special.

He has powers. No, no.. he doesn't have any super-powers like Hiro or Peter, Mokh's powers are more deadlier.

Mokh has the power and authority but no common sense or a brain to use it! Oh, and apprently he can turn people into donkeys too!

How does his powers work? Let's take one example of Mokh's heroic escapade.

Now, Mokh's job allows him to maintain the welfare for a bunch of villagers. So one day, Mokh decided to give the villagers a place to live by promising the construction of a new village. Fair enough. He had promoted his new sprawling village-ship by dangling the nearby forest reserve (which is a gazetted forst reserve since 1898), as a carrot in front of the 'donkeys'. Thus the villagers, who had now turned into real 'donkeys' by Mokh, then bought the houses or pieces of land, because the newly-turned donkeys wanted to live near a green lung, totally believing that Mokh and his friends would be committed to protecting the 100-year-old forest.

What does Mokh do?

Using his power of severely 'Lacking a Brain', he decides to bulldoze, yes literally to bulldoze through with a series of plans in a high-handed manner without any respect for the views of the affected 'donkeys'. Wow, amazing.


First, the 'donkeys' were told that a cemetery would be created next to their land and now, to their horror, they found that the Petaling Jaya Structural Plan 2020 has bigger plans to develop the forest reserve.

It was already bad enough that the cemetery issue has divided the community – one group of 'donkeys' that wants the cemetery but most of whom DO NOT live in the area while the other group is the one affected and is understandably against it. Tempers have even flared at meetings between both groups of 'donkeys'.

No sh*t. Using his powers of 'No Common Sense', he didn't previously mentioned or discussed the cemetary project to the resident donkeys of the area but had acted on the decision made by the donkeys living from outside of the area.

Now the resident villagers are upset because they found out that Mokh's bosses have powers themselves. The power of degazetting a forest in a suspicious way that smacks of non-transparency.

The affected villagers, who are now were-donkeys (donkey by-day, human by-night) have stated that they are NOT against the cemetery but are against the de-gazetting of the forest and the manner it had been carried out. Sadly, some of Mokhs rivals has entered into the picture and has been using the issue to rally support from some misinformed constituents by using the race and religion card.

So, Hiro eat your heart out. Bending time and space? Pbfffft!

Trying to save New York from getting blown up is easy. Let's see you and your friends try to create awareness in nature conservation as well as to promote transparency in the local legislative methods and procedures. Hah!

The villagers have turned to the Justice League of Nature Society for help. Yes, I now have to reveal my secret identity and use my extraordinary powers of Good Looks and Charming Personality to help out those who are in need.

I just need a phone booth to change. Where to find ah?

I've been following Heroes, and yes i'm one of those cheats who download the episodes so sue me. But harrr I've realised recently that the show is losing it's momentum and am starting to lose interest.

I do however think you should really check out Prison Break. Its writing and acting is far superior. It's the end of 2nd season and still it kicks ass. So yea watchitwatchitwatchit.

i don't watch heroes so i dunno who this mokh is. but the character seems familiar and he probably holds some exco seat in the state government.

i've never heard of this PJ structural plan 2020. when did this plan formulated? the last time they had a structural plan coming up, the local authority held a public hearing and many people turned up to voice their opinions, dissatisfaction etc etc.

but that was in .. jap nak kira dgn jari .. in late 1994/early 1995.

did you know that before BU came into being, it was proposed that the cemetery was to be located there? in fact it was in the masterplan but that got changed laa ..

i can't remember much of its history now. i'm an old woman and i may need to be relocated to a cemetery near you.
