Gold : 916

I don't know anything about gold, except it's gold in colour!! And it's very precious. A search in Wikipedia comes out with its description and grading, amongst other things. The international grading of gold is by carats. As pure gold is too soft for ordinary use it is typically hardened by alloying with copper or other base metals. The gold content of gold alloys is measured in carats (k), pure gold being designated as 24k.

I don't know about other countries; but if you visit any goldsmith shop you will see the "916" and price per gramme. "916" gold, I suppose should be equivaleny to 24K. But never mind about this gold. I for one, doesn't have much to spare to buy gold anyway.

There is another type of "Gold" in Malaysia and it is also called "916". It is actually the date of a very significant milestone. As all Malaysians will know, "916" means September 16. And it is drawing very near. This date sends uncontrollable shivers and convulsions to some, while soothes the souls of others. Like pure gold, this 916 is of pure vision. A vision of a new Government by a new wave of incumbents. A Government that is fair to all its citizens. A Government that will rid this country of the false doctrine of racial fear and hatred which had been indoctrinated by an evil and corrupted regime.

"916" is a set of figures that cannot be toppled. Whichever way you turn it, it remains "916"! Let us hope that the new Government is like pure 916 gold. May the new 916 government be like gold as decribed in Wikipedia which I quote:

"Gold readily forms alloys with many other metals. These alloys can be produced to increase the hardness or to create exotic colors (see below). Gold is a good conductor of
heat and electricity, and is not affected by air and most reagents. Heat, moisture, oxygen, and most corrosive agents have very little chemical effect on gold, making it well-suited for use in coins and jewelry;"

And this is my "translation":

"The new Government readily forms allies with many other parties. These allies can be harnessed to create cooperation amongst people of different colours. The new Government is a good agent of fairness and efficiency, and is not affected by corruption and nepotism. Subversive agents have very little effect on this new Government, making it well-suited for serving the people."

May our dream come true; come 916 !

POSTSCRIPT: Now I know why it's called "916"

Ofcourse....I will be praying to the tree god..where I use to bribe them with cigars and beer ..for 4 digit numbers.

cilyhot said...

Spot on 916. The best 916 that I read so far, Justin.

Another 916 comment that attracted me is here,

Go there and enjoy yourself.

Dr Hsu's blog is my favourite.

monsterball said...

It is his favourite to read....not to post..too much.

Antares said...

Thanks for this post, Justin. Priceless! First I'm hearing that 916 is associated with GOLD... also didn't realize till you mentioned it that the number reads the same either way up. That is truly significant. One more sign that Anwar is on a roll with a special mandate from heaven.

Justin Choo said...

Hi Antares,

Yes this 916 is worth much more than gold. This political 916 is priceless. If 916 is not achieveable on 916, never mind, any date will do; but don't let us wait too long.

Thanks for visiting.

Hey Antares,

You have beautiful graphics in your blogs. Will spend more time at your blogs later and comments as well. Now got to go.

Peter Yew said...

Please read my comment today in Dr Hsu's Forum for another observation of this unique and symbolic number.

Justin Choo said...

Peter Yew,

Done that already.

Justin Choo said...

Wah Peter,

You got so many blogs. Will go through them later.

Thanks for visiting
