Did King dissolve the Parliament?

Last night, I watched Emirates New on Dubai Channel One TV and that was a news on the arrival of our King at Abu Dhabi on February 13. No mention of the arrival time though but it looked like midday.

But NO news in BERNAMA or other major papers on the visit so far.

The news can still be watched here, make sure 13 Feb version.

What time was the departure of the King from Kuala Lumpur? The flight is normally 6 to 7 hours and Kuala Lumpur is 4 hours ahead of Abu Dhabi. The clip showed the arrival was still during daylight (now maghrib is 6.15pm or so).

Go figure.

As reported,The Yang diPertuan Agong has given his consent to dissolve Parliament on Feb 13 itself, paving the way for the 12th General Elections to be held within 60 days from the date of dissolution.

WAM reported:

Dear Fudzail,

Assuming His Majesty arrived at Dubai at 6.15pm Dubai time, that would mean he left KLIA at around 4.15p.m KL time.

Hence more than sufficient time for His Majesty to give consent in the morning and later take a flight from KLIA to go to Dubai.

Dear Fudzail,

I left out something. According to my friend (her sister-in-law is a flight stewardess), it usually takes about 6 hours flight.

Using that, I derived the 4.15pm departure time. If it is 7 hours, that would mean His Majesty left around 3.15pm.

kalau begitu terang dan bersih lah semua nye ye...


kita harus memastikan kebersihan - ini semua gejala banyak nya perkara yang kurang bersih.

Sometimes - a man speaks very loudly of BERSIH, CEKAP dan AMANAH - we didn't hear a word!!! Sebabnya, his perilaku adalah sebaliknya.

Keep watching ...

Nanti kita tanya lagi dengan stewardess tu...ada nampakkah ahli2 kroni jalan2 makan angin bawak2 kroni2 lain selepas pilihan raya sebagai imbuhan??
