Somewhat, it fits the timing now, with the state elections in Sarawak. Do read it with an open mind and a sense of humour.
Heaven vs Hell
Whilst walking down the street one day a Malaysian “Boleh” Minister is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in HEAVEN and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
St. Peter: Welcome to HEAVEN. Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.
Yang Berhormat: No problem, just let me in.
St. Peter: Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is you have to spend one day in HELL and one in HEAVEN. Then you can chose, where to spend eternity.
Yang Berhormat: Really, I have made up my mind. I want to be in HEAVEN.
St. Peter: I’m sorry, but we have our rules.
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down, down to HELL.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.
In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it, are all his friends and other politicians who had worked for him.
Everyone is very happy and dressed in the finest batik there is. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They play a friendly game of golf and then indulge themselves on lobsters, caviar and the most expensive food.
Also present is the DEVIL , who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realises it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in HEAVEN where St. Peter is waiting for him.
St. Peter: Now it’s time to visit HEAVEN.
So, 24 hours pass with the Yang Berhormat joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing.
They have a good time and, before he realises it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
St. Peter: Well, then, you have spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.
Yang Berhormat: Well, I would never have said it before. I mean HEAVEN has been delightful, but I think I am better off in HELL.
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to HELL. Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in a middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.
He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.
The DEVIL comes over to him and puts his hands around his shoulder.
Yang Berhormat: I don’t understand. Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?
The DEVIL(smilingly): Yesterday we were campaigning just like you during an election…Today you VOTED.
Moral of the story? USE YOUR VOTE INTELLIGENTLY !!!
Have a good week ahead, readers!
Love & Peace!~
