Day 529 { Obsessed / Election In Japan And New Government } Sunday, August 30, 2009


Day 529 { Obsessed / Election In Japan And New Government }

Stayed in most of the day today. Later in the evening I washed a blanket and then watched a movie name Obsessed.

Obsessed has a very very interesting plot... something that we would "possibly" not see in the life time. A white lady obsessed with a rich, successful black guy who is married with a kid. I don't know how many black married men would have such a strong resistance at all. The movie itself though was a bit lacking... But I think its worth watching.


Today was election in Japan....

The Democratic Party of Japan won the Lower House election by a landslide Sunday, grabbing more than 300 seats in the 480-seat chamber.

The victory by the main opposition party will end more than half a century of almost uninterrupted rule by the Liberal Democratic Party. It will also usher in DPJ President Yukio Hatoyama, 62, as the new prime minister by mid-September.

The DPJ-led opposition camp secured 340 seats against just 140 for the LDP-New Komeito ruling bloc. In the opposition camp, the DPJ alone had 308.

The country is mired in its worst economic slump since World War II, caught in deflation and with unemployment at record levels. Widespread voter dissatisfaction with the ruling party's efforts at a turnaround led to a landslide victory for the opposition.
