Just when you thought that 82-strong opposition MPs can do something to balance the order of things in this great nation of ours, you stumbled upon this. God help us!

Two MPs mark their first month in Parliament with hard-boiled eggs.
I WAS amazed to see a picture of two MPs distributing red hard-boiled eggs to newsmen at the Parliament to mark their first month in the Dewan Rakyat.
Not long ago, it was a whole group of Opposition MPs celebrating the birthday of the daughter of an Internal Security Act detainee. It looks really funny, as in my opinion, the Dewan Rakyat is supposed to be a place where MPs have their meetings, debate and all that important stuff. Before this, I always thought highly of the Dewan Rakyat and the important issues. Unfortunately, when I look at the Dewan Rakyat now, all I see is a bunch of people trying new stuff to "impress" the rakyat who voted for them.
Sometimes, some of the MPs also like to debate over trivial issues and waste the Dewan's time. It's annoying to see these people putting up all these acts. To me, there is no need to over-react and MPs should only debate important matters. With MPs celebrating birthdays and distributing red hard-boiled eggs, I wonder what else will happen in the future.
I like the sound of this though. If he's talking with genuine concerned, politics aside that is...
