Idiotic announcement of the year!

Well, its countdown time, 2008 is leaving us, and 2009 is waiting at the corner.

We have a great 2008, when we denied 2/3 majority against Barisan Nasional, the ruling regime which has been ruling this land since independence.

Well, this is the Great thing we have achieved, but we have, among others, idiots who speak with their pea-sized brain.

Here are some to recall your memory, in case you have forgotten:

1. "I will not dissolve the Parliament, atleast not for the immediate future." -- and the next day, parliament dissolved!

2. "The Government will not increase the pump price, atleast not for the immediate future." -- and the pump price increased a whopping RM0.78, from RM1.92 per litter to RM2.70 per litter, ON THE NEXT DAY!

3. "We need to reduce the petrol price little by little even the international market price dropped sharply, coz we cannot afford to let the pump operators incurred great losses if the price goes down accordingly." -- Well, when the petrol price went up, no one seems to speak on behalf of the consumer, I mean no one from the Cabinet. But the Consumer Affair Minister is protecting the pump retailers from incurring losses, what happen when the pump operators made huge profit when the price hike skyrocket??

4. "The Government need to start somewhere to slowly withdrawn petrol subsidy, and this is the best time as the Government no longer capable of handling the subsidy judging from the current international market price of USD145 per barrel, and the market price will not come down as petrol reserve is diminishing." -- The mushroomed mouth never talk about petrol price nowadays -- friend, there's no longer subsidy, the Government is in fact subsidize by the people, which you named it as TAX!

5. "When the petrol prices going downwards, retailers and traders should adjust their prices downwards as well." -- My FOOT!! TNB tariff goes up from 10%, water wanted to increase its tariff by 37% in year 2009 if the Selangor state Government is not handling the water reserves management to SYABAS. Who want to reduce selling prices??

6. "Malaysia will never be affected by the financial tsunami, or rather, the impact is going to be very minimal." -- As an export oriented country, the 16th US trade partners, is not going to be affected by the crisis, guess the DUMPHEAD mistakenly think that
EXPORT means buying from US, thus we just stop buying la, nothing will happen to us then!!

7. "The Bukit Antarabangsa tragedy is clearly not due to human negligence." -- The person taking care of the portfolio made such comment when first appeared at the tragic site 4 days after the incident implied that no one, or only GOD is to be blamed!

8. "We can foresee short of electricity supply to Klang Valley by year 2009 if the Rawang relay stations cannot be upgraded as planned."

A week later, the same man announced "We foresee a drop in demand on electricity next year. And we were forced to buy the power generated by JIMAH plant commencing next year that will increase our reserve electricity to 45% (which means wasted!!)"

When asked to buy from IPP, gave all sort of excuse, and want to hike the tariff for all of us to pay for the wastage. On another hand, wanted to force Rawang and the State to give way so that the original upgrade plan can be carried out. What logic and I wonder which school is he graduated from??

9. "The reporter needs protection according to Police Intelligence that her life is threaten, thus the Police detained her under ISA (Internal Security Act)" -- This is an eye-opener for all on earth that a Law designed to combat CPM (Communist Party of Malaya) is also an adult protection act.

With such statements from our beloved "leaders", you can ever imagine how well this country will be in year 2009.

The list goes on, add youself.... Have fun!!!!

I don't understand the logic behind all these!

We were told during the Budget 2009 that about 40% of Federal Government's spending comes from Petroleum and Petroleum related products.

We observed that the Crude Petroleum Oil went down from the estimated figure in Budget 2009 at USD125 to USD36 as of 24th Dec 2008.

This means a sharp decrease of 71%, which affects income of Federal Government to support its operation for year 2009.

Thus, the Federal Government is short of 28.4% to finance its activities as budgeted.

Based on the estimates, if the Government is subsidizing RM0.30 per litter on Petrol, at the point Budget 2009 was announced, the total subsidy for Petrol used in Malaysia is RM7billion for year 2009 as originally estimated.

Now the subsidy no longer there, the Federal Government instead taking this "savings" and pump it back to the economy under the name "stimulus package".

But if the subsidy is eliminated due to drop in petrol prices, what will it affect the spending part of the Federal Government where 40% of its operations comes from petrol money?

We are talking about RM43.7billion short here under Federal estimated spending for year 2009, where the total spending is estimated at RM154billion for the year 2009.

Yes, the Government saved the RM7billion, and "generously" putting back to the economy (in actual fact, the RM7billion should not be there at all if the subsidy scheme still carry on). Means the Government is in fact, taking available cash from all of us, and put it to its nicely dressed "stimulus package" by means of re-distributing the wealth supposedly in our pocket.

Thus, the RM7billion actually does not exist. However, even it does exist from the point of savings in terms of subsidy, it is totally wipe off if you look at short of RM43.7billion next year.

How would you pour RM7billion when you are short of RM43.7billion??

How will the Federal Government finance this??

Ask your MPs, especially those who supported the RM7billion "stimulus" package, where is the money coming from when the total estimated income shrink by 28.4%, even if deficit is 1.2% higher then the original estimate of 3.6%, i.e. 4.8% now, it still does not make up the figures.

Unless I am wrong. Can someone tell me how I go wrong?

CPO Khalid - reaction from around the internet/blogs

Was doing a quick google to see if he is a popular figure, here are some of the results:

And a post from RPK:

I met YB Khalid and Tuan Guru Nik Aziz last night

I was there, where the Ceramah took place.

I wanted to first, see Tuan Guru in person. Tuan Guru is one of the person I admire not because he is Menteri Besar of Kelantan, not because he is the Spiritual Leader of PAS, but as a person who practice Islam and truly reflect what Islam is all about - fairness to all.

Perhaps many may say that Tuan Guru sometime made controversial statements that fear non-muslim. To me, if Tuan Guru speaks from his heart, his caring for people who he believe Islam, will be the solution to all problems. Put yourself in his perspective, and you would probably do the same if you care of the humankind.

I was there not only wanted to listen to him, but also to pray for his health. Knowing he is rushing all his way from Kelantan to Bandar Tasik Puteri, the long journey may be too taxing for an elderly person. I wish he is in good health.

Another person I would like to meet there is YB Khalid. I have been following his blog nearly everyday, and last night, I see him in person, speak to the crowd.

It was raining right before the ceramah started, downpour in fact. But rain stops 10 minutes before the event scheduled time, i.e. 9:00pm. What a blessing from the Almighty that allows the ceramah to go on, although with slight delay.

The banner of the Ceramah featured Pakatan Rakyat, i.e. PAS, PKR, and DAP. I met a lot of PAS people, some PKR, but I did not spot any DAP guys. I am wondering, what happen to DAP? Shouldn't they be here to show their support? Maybe I was wrong that they did come but I really don't see anyone identifiable.

Who run the state of Selangor?

Well, we have an outspoken Police Chief claiming that the police took action after vigil participants finished their National Anthem.

We have the Police Chief insisted that the Menteri Besar of Selangor to be guarded by police officers, regardless of whether MB likes it or not.

We have the Police Chief stopping ordinary people from cycling in Rawang, claiming that the activity is illegal and there's no police permit issued for the cycling activity.

Soon, we may see one day our dear "friend" may just come forward and tell you that you cannot breath as breathing is against the Police Act, under a section to be tabled in the Parliament (sure to pass right?)

I think he will probably be promoted when IGP step down/resign/retire/sack (pick the appropriate word when time come).


Do something if you can...

....There are many out there who have contributed to the cause of making this a better Malaysia. Many are faceless and nameless Malaysians who work quietly and aggressively behind the scenes in the effort to bring changes to Malaysia. One such family is, today, in need of help themselves.

This particular family is now going through their own crisis. Nevertheless, in spite of their predicament, they are still very much in the thick and thin of the struggle. But health problems, and financial problems brought on by their medical predicament, have brought hard times upon them. And it is time that fellow Malaysians rally to their side and assist in any small way that we can to help this family out of their predicament.......

Where have all your money gone - Jalan Duta Court Complex electricity bill

I read this from Malaysiakini a while ago:

full text here

RM5 mil to light up court complex
Beh Lih Yi | Dec 11, 08 7:31pm
The government forked out more than RM5 million since May 2007 for the electricity bill for the new Jalan Duta Court Complex, revealed de facto law minister Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz.

He said this in a parliamentary written reply to Karpal Singh (DAP-Bukit Gelugor) who asked whether the government was aware that the lights at the complex were on throughout the night.

nazri abdul aziz"For your information, the total electricity cost at the court complex since its setting up (in May 2007) up till July 2008 amounts to RM5,668,596," said the minister.

"However, not all lights are switched on at night. They are on for security purposes," he added......
This means, for the past 14 months, the Jalan Duta Court Complex is burning RM5million on electricity alone. Let us drill down to see how many houses we can power instead:

Assuming that an average household is using RM150 per month electricity. For my house, our bill is averagely around RM60-80, thus, Rm150 may be on the higher side.

The average monthly electricity bill for the Jalan Duta Court Complex is RM357,143.

So if we use the same amount to power the ordinary people's houses instead, with the amount of money spent, we can practically power a small township of around 2,380 houses with the assumption that average electricity bill per household is RM150 per month.

My question is: How big is the court complex, and why such a huge utility bill?

What about other government buildings??

Mind you, the figure revealed is before TNB hike 10% on its tariff.

The 15th Anniversary of Highland Tower Tragedy

15 years ago, I was there, at the scene, briefly after the Tower collapsed. I volunteered to be there bring food supply to media friends, i.e. reporters and photographers.

For those who were killed, rest in peace.

And for those who are in power, they still make the same mistake after lives been taken away.

May the Almighty punish those who escaped from the human law.

What the F is this dumbhead minister talking?

Do you know this man? He is the minister who commented the Bukit Antarabangsa tragedy:

"There is no clear evidence to show that the landslide in Bukit Antarabangsa was a result of human negligence", he pontificated after a visit to the landslide area where 4 people were killed and 1 still missing. "

I really have no idea why we have such minister who can comment in such, without proper evidence to support his claim, and worse, he was missing for 4 days, and made his appearance 4 days after the tragedy, and yet, making the above remarks.

I wonder if he speaks from his ass or his mouth!

Another dumbhead minister!! He deserves the following, just replace the word "fruit" with his name!

Ai Yo! ValueCap!

We were told that the Government guaranteed the RM5billion from EPF to ValueCap, for the later to invest in undervalued stocks in Bursa Malaysia.

Very Good!

Here comes the question:

  1. EPF announced recently a sharp drop on its investment income as much as 60% compared to last year. If EPF as a cautious player in Bursa suffered in Bursa, can ValueCap does better? If ValueCap can do better, why not resolve the entire EPF investment team and outsource the investment business to ValueCap?
  2. If ValueCap is good, why it is not making money?
  3. If ValueCap failed in its attempt to harvest from "undervalued but quality" stocks, i.e. if RM5billion gone with the wind, the Government is going to pay EPF the loan amount. Isn't Government fund from the Rakyat? Isn't this like Mr. A loaned RM5 to Mr B asking B to buy some good stuff. B failed and lost the RM5. B need not replay A, but A will replay himself from left pocket to right pocket, and see, you still have RM5 in hand. What a magic!
  4. What if ValueCap really make money from Bursa, will ValueCap repay with its profit, and keep a percentage as management fee, or swallow everything, and the Government still fork up RM5billion to pay back EPF?

If money does not belong to ValueCap, and if it fails, ValueCap will not be in the position to recover the lost sum. We will then see the Government & ValueCap both blame the other investors not lending a helping hand to boost Bursa. The show is then off, and what you can do? Bang your balls and hang yourself!

BTW, is there a vacancy in ValueCap? Office boy also can do la. I want to work there so I have insider information on what they want to push man. Don't blame me for being short sighted la, everyone like that ma. Rakyat's money, my foot!

Go sleep now. Will start a business in my dream call ValueGood. Make sure the UN is backing me up with unlimited fund!!!

What!? Change? Again??

Najib said yesterday that Malaysian should change their perspective on Malaysia crime rate as it is lower than in Hong Kong and Japan.

Not long ago, he said we should change our lifestyle after the prices of essential boomed sky high.

Well, as a Prime Minister in waiting, thank God he is still in the queue, he is giving advise as if we resist changes.

For ordinary people on the street, we have already adjusted our lifestyle, and be very positive on crime rate, even when we were robbed, stabbed, snatched, hit, bullied, killed (fill in the blank yourself, the list is too long to fit here), we are still living our lives, although it is a lot worse that we had when thru during the previous rounds of economic slowdown.

But, the man in the queue still want us to change.

We have downgraded our entertainment, from movie once a month to movie once a quarter, since going out for movie for two cost almost RM80 nowadays with toll, petrol, parking, tickets, food, you name it.

We have changed.

We have downgraded from eating imported Siam rice to the cheapest rice we can get in the market, i.e. 15% mixed local rice for the price of Siam rice about 1 year ago.

We have changed.

We have downgraded our sundry shopping from once a week to twice a month, and limit our spending not to exceed RM200 per shopping for sundry. RM200 a year ago can get almost double the present value.

Don't believe?

30 grade C eggs selling in Tesco a year ago before Hari Raya was RM4.80.

The price now is RM8.75

Yes, it is not double, but it is almost double!

1Kg chicken selling for RM4.99 a year ago, now selling RM6.99 as offer and normal price sometimes go up to RM7.90

Yes, it is not double, but it is almost there!

We have changed.

We were told that Malaysia wanted to be the forerunner providing high speed broadband for all, and we have patiently waiting for TM to increase their bandwidth on Streamyx. Year after year, and now we were told that the government need to spend billions to get TM to build fiber optic broadband services, yet no end product speed is specified whether we will be getting 20Mbps or 1Gbps fiber to home connection.

Meanwhile, for most other countries which has already high speed broadband, i.e. fiber to home in Japan and metropolitan areas in India, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, etc. They have been using 10Mbps or some even have 1Gbps to their home, and the fee is not as expensive as we think (just ask if TM can supply 1Gbps pipe to your house at what price, I bet they cannot do, or the price will kill you off!)

The bottom line is: Malaysia is expensive!! Living in Malaysia is expensive!!

With all the blessing from God that we have all the good mix from primary products to manufacturing, logistic, professional resources, yet we are expensive!

As a simple comparison. Take Taiwan as an example.

My wife went to Taiwan recently for her assignment. She said the food and cost of living even in Taipei is cheaper than in Kuala Lumpur.

A plate of fried oyster egg, enough for one person, is selling around NT30, which is approx RM3.30. The same in KL, smaller plate, far lesser oyster, less egg but with lots of flour, is selling minimum RM5.00.

Friend, this is almost double man!

Look at their average income, an average Taiwanese income is NT50,000, and average income for an average Malaysian is?? You have the answer.

Taiwan has no natural resources, Taiwan is constantly under Communist China's threat that they need to spend substantial portion of their national income on arms and weapons to deter China from invading them. Taiwan is an island isolated by sea, logistic is expensive as compare to Malaysia.

Why they can have cheaper cost of living yet higher income?

Even the then President Chen Shui Bian was found corrupted, and was accused that he messed up the economy, Taiwan still better than Malaysia.


We hear and see how the government wasted our money, from Eurocopter to Pempena, from Bakun to IPP. From BII to ValueCap.

Why not the Government change?

Why not Najib change?


Why not we change them all?

Anwar Ibrahim - part 1

At this juncture, many may just shy away with his name, after he failed to deliver the 916 promise.

But the Anwar Ibrahim that I know, have successfully created undercurrent in Malaysia's political scene, that BN aka UMNO undeniably facing a strong opponent.

I met Anwar a couple of times, the first time was a distance away, when he was attending a ceremony in which I happened to be there.

The second time I met Anwar, again, a distance away, right after he was sacked, and he was rallying reformasi at Dataran Merdeka, in the eve of his dramatic arrest.

The third time, I had a closer look at him, we were talking face to face.

I was accompanying my wife, who was scheduled for an exclusive interview with Anwar and Kak Wan.

The day the interview took place at his house in Segambut Dalam, was the day he reported to JAWI on Saiful's allegation.

When we entered his house compound, the house was dark. Anwar opened the main door for us, personally.

He then turn on light sufficient to light up the portion of the living room where we was sitting, and turn on the air cond.

This is such a small details reflecting his character: He doesn't waste unnecessarily.

He is slow, smooth, and determined talker, highly convincing with his moderate tone, unlike when he was speaking in ceramahs.

My wife was warned earlier by Anwar's aides that Anwar was annoyed earlier when a Chinese daily throwing him questions relating to his sodomy case in an early interview. They told her to just ask Anwar on political development but not his personal issues.

Well, she asked his sodomy case, it was the first question. Anwar did not get agitated. He is as calm as he use to be.

We then talk about him, his family, little on his political ambitious.

Kak Wan came in after bathing her grand daughter. She joined and we were talking, and she was listening and looking at Anwar with her eyes.

They were siting together, holding hands.

When we touched on the moment Anwar was released, when he was overseas in Georgetown University as a visiting professor. He was very proud telling us that he is a man who now able to bring income and support his family. Gone were those rumours that he swindled millions for himself.

I can never forget his voice saying "I am earning now to support my family!" Kind of sad for a man who was not able to do so for the 6 years he was in jail, and the whole family was humiliated by those you know who.

I noticed when we talk about the days he was suffering, Kak Wan held his hand real tight, although she did not show up on her face.

There were a few questions that I think it is good for me to put up here as a record.

When I asked why should Anwar, and Pakatan Rakyat, wanted to ensure peaceful transition of power, where for others, they would have ruin the country.

Anwar is calm, he reasoned that the Rakyat deserves a peaceful transition. Revolution, especially revolution with blood is never in his mind, neither leaders in Pakatan Rakyat wanted a Revolution to happen.

I was asking him why he wanted to be the Prime Minister. To my surprise, he said he leave it to the people and leaders in Pakatan Rakyat whether he will be the Prime Minister. I then asked isn't he the Prime Minister in waiting as he claimed? Well, Anwar did not answer the question direct, he merely say that if people need his leadership, he will take the lead.

to be continued.....

I've heard of a news today

When I went out feeding cats within my vicinity, one of my neighbour came and told me:

"Chia, did you know RPK received RM5million from Najib? Everyone in coffee shop now talking. You know, 5 million! No wonder RPK is so quiet now!"

It was to my surprise. I have never thought of such in the first place. Rumours around the blogs unfriendly to RPK claimed he received fund from Singapore Secret Service and Anwar (both claimed by a guy called Dato' Bendahara who refused to reveal his real identity when making such claims)

Some said the Royals is backing him up financially, of which RPK has denied when we interviewed him a while ago.

Given a thought, it is quite a laugh when I heard Najib paid RPK RM5million to shut him up. Najib would have millions of other ways to silence him (need I elaborate??) , instead of pay him the sum and allow RPK to ransom him for the rest of his life. 

However, if Najib paid RPK, he is likely be the person with no brain and no sense.

Until the time I meet RPK again, I will ask him this, and see what he will answer.

Why prices of rice still high?

In fact, the local rice prices should not be increased at all during the food crisis last year.


This is my point, be it valid or not I'll leave it to the experts:

If local rice are controlled items, what doe it means? It means the wholesalers will buy from farmers a fixed price, and to sell to the consumer at a fixed retail price. Thus, the Government is subsidising both ends, i.e. to the farmer and to the consumer.

In addition to this, local rice is not exported as we do not have enough production for our domestic market, hence there's no export of local rice.

The question is: If local rice is not exporting, it should not be subjected to fluctuation of world rice prices, i.e. what happen in rice prices outside has got nothing to do with prices of local rice.

If it does not subject to world rice prices, why the Government increase the prices of local rice then to almost 100%?

Since then, world rice prices goes stable to almost the level of 2007, but our local rice prices?

Perhaps the Government should look at itself from the mirror before accusing sundry traders not reducing the prices of essential goods.

Ronnie Liu's Saga - 09 Nov 2008 PJ Civic Centre Vigil

I hate this, but I think I have to make it clear.

It started with an article posted in Malaysia Today on Nov 11 2008 titled:

I have posted a comment which attracts some attention from a number of people. The comment is reproduced here, I have added paragraph break to make it readable from the original comment which I've done it on my mobile:

ritten by ChiaCY, November 11, 2008 16:14:54
Sorry but I saw him ran away when the attack is on.
We thought we escaped aster, but he is even faster than us, was quickly walking away in front of us.
Someone shouted at him that he should lent a helping hand to those who are arrested.
To our surprise, Ronnie's aide answered on his behalf that Ronnie is rushing to toilet.
However, Ronnie then turned to the young man who shouted at him provoking the young man to go to the police station.
I can agree we keep our strength by running away instead of everyone got caught.
But there were hitting and shouting at the back and he was still seen behind the store when we left.
I don't think he go pee anyway.
We did not expect a hero from Ronnie, atleast what he can do is try to guide those who are running away so that they will not be threaten by FRU and plainclothes chasing after us.
Perhaps I may be wrong, but this is the first time I see a wakil rakyat ran away from the scene.
hence there's a reply from Angela Ooi :
written by Angela Ooi, November 11, 2008 20:13:20
ChiaCY, it was unfair and untrue comment, YB Ronnie did not have to be with us as he was not arrested but he came back to be with us and he was a pillar of strenght all through the wee hours together with the fantastic group of lawyers headed by Edmond Bon. He was on the phone alot negotiating for our release.

As noted by RPK, he is a true friend. He has consistently turned up for EVERY courtcase and police station that our beloved Raja Petra had to appear in. Ronnie truly deserves my respect. Yes, I would certainly vote him if I could!
Which I replied:
written by ChiaCY, November 12, 2008 03:33:28

Probably my statement is unfair to Ronnie. But I've seen from my naked eyes, and also heard his reply when the young man questioned him in Mandarin.

Perhaps I am not the only one, my wife, and a couple of others were there too.

I only described what happened at that instance, and added my comment if Ronnie would have help those helpless getting out of the scene.

I did not expect him to forge with the police, neither do I have the intention. But how if it is true, should I shut my mouth for not telling or pretended that I did not see and hear it?

He went to the police station later, I solute him for his courage knowing he probably will be arrested. However, what I have described is true.

There;s a person everyone missed, that's worth mentioning, Mr Wong Chin Huat, he deserved my respect (thus his name is prefixed with Mr) on that day.

When he sensed FRU is going to charge us, he was going round looking for Haris to negotiate with the Police, could not find. Then he turned to Ronnie, when Ronnie is still in the midst of photo session.

He was the one who really care of our safety. Ask Wong if you can, ask him what happened that night.
Then a response from Man in Black:
written by Man In Black, November 12, 2008 04:07:27
ChiaCy, were you there or not...ronnie is a true statesman and a true leader for the Rakyat. If only you can do a quarter of what he is doing for the Rakyat...If you can't keep your remarks to yourself.
And here is my final response to Man in Black:
written by ChiaCY, November 12, 2008 19:51:13
Man In Black,

This is my first hand account at the scene if you are in doubt.

I will illustrate the escape route, when we spotted Ronnie, step b step if you need. Go visit my blog and I shall update there instead of cluttering the space here.

My point is clear: I described what I have seen ad heard. I do not know if Ronnie is noble or evil. I described based on the impression given on that instance.

I do not know Ronnie btw, and have no interest on him.
Since the statement I made is in doubt, I would like to recall the happenings from the moment FRU charged us, until both my wife and myself left the scene.
Again, I am not interested in Ronnie, for whatever he is. I am just telling what I have seen and heard at that instance.
It is easier with the help of the PJ Civic centre satellite view:

Look at the image, I have marked several places which I will explain one by one:

  1. This is the place we sing the National Anthem, where the canopy is.
  2. FRU lined up here. They charged from this position toward position 1 above.
  3. Everyone was running everywhere, I was here when I witnessed an Indian arrested by a couple of plainclothes. FRU passed us by here but they did nothing to us.
  4. We walked from position 3 to position 4 where we saw another man in Red RPK shirt arrested by a bunch of plainclothes. While walking from 3 to 4, a Chinese plainclothes was shouting at us wanted us to move fast else we will be arrested as well. People still running like wild at this point, poor parents who brought their kids there to make their stand are facing threat from the FRU.
  5. When we walked from position 4 to position 6, before crossing the road, we spotted Ronnie already somewhere position 6, rushing out.
  6. A young man at position 5, at the road side, shouting in Mandarin to Ronnie asking him to lend an helping hand to those arrested as a Wakil Rakyat. We were almost reaching position 6 from position 4, together with us was an eldery father and a young teenager, which they witnessed the same scene as us.
  7. Ronnie walked towards position 8 from position 7, and a man, white short sleeve shirt, was responding to the young man that Ronnie is rushing to the gents. Some one uttered in Cantonise asking if Ronnie were to espace by giving reason to go to the gents. Ronnie then rushed from position 8 towards position 7 and replied to the young man to meet in the police station later.
  8. We are moving away from position 7 towards position 10, and we saw Rannie, with a few guys, including the white short sleeve guy, talking at position 9, which is at the back of the restaurant, facing position 10, an open car park.
  9. While we walked away from position 10, Ronnie was still at postion 9 talking/discussing.
As I said, I solute Ronnie for his courage to go to the police station after the fiasco.

I never demand him as a Saint to save everyone, but was curious at that moment of time, what he should be doing instead?

Hope this clear everyone's doubt.

When your servant stabbed your back!

I was standing and singing under the canopy, orange t-shirt, although not clear, but I was there.

Someone questioned if I was there really. Yes, I was there. I was underneath the yellow sign board, wearing the same orange t-shirt as featured in my photo on the right of this blog.

(RPK looks OK)

I was attending the AmCorp mall vigil with my wife. Reached there around 9:30pm, after wrestling with road blocks and looking for a car park.

We were told that the crowd dispersed and we witnessed FRUs right at the entrance of the mall.

Then we decided to go ahead to Civic centre when were told that everyone is moving there.

Met RPK along the way, He still look tired, but better spirit. We were talking with others who marched towards Civic centre, and most was expressing their anger with the Authority trying to depress our voices. Some was saying that we will give them a good lesson come GE13.

Deep in my heart, I know if we do not do it now, and continue mounting pressure, there will be no genuine GE13.

Reached Civic centre, greeted Marina, and the short ceremony begun.

Both of us was standing outside the crowd. We heard Tony said that if there's no BERSIH rally, he will probably not been elected.

Then we started singing "Negara Ku", when we are about to finish, FRU charged us.

It seems that they have specific targets. I saw them chasing after a young Indian guy, and got him finally.

We quickly walked away as we are not able to help at that instance. A few FRUs passed us by, but they did nothing to us.

Some plainclothes, one Chinese plainclothes, was shouting at us chasing us to leave the venue.
So now I know, our Police force is used against the orderly people, people who are seeking for justice, not to combat crime.

I was robbed, reported, caught the suspect, recovered my lost item. And for years the police failed to charge the suspect despite evidence strong enough to put him to what he deserves.

Our residential area crime rate is climbing to an alarming level, and was asked to employ our own guards instead of relying on police.

Where have all the police gone?
Gone to catch those good people.

Where have all the police gone?
Gone by the wind.

Where have all the good people gone?
Good people go Kamunting or jail

Where have all the good people gone?
Gone by the wind.

Thank God! He's freed!

He should be, and will forever be a free man, right?

Now we have a heavier task to accomplish, the call for CHANGE since 308, and the HOPE since 916.

BELIEVE in ourselves, HOPE for the better future, and CHANGE starting from our own selves.

Don't sit and wait for other to start first, you are the master of your own, decide NOW, do it NOW!

Parliament Malaysia

My God!!

If you ever have a chance to watch the Parliament's Q&A session, I think you will either scared to dead, or you will swear that you want to be the ruling party's MP in the future.

I have been following quite a while, what makes me shiver is answers from respective ministers.

We have been given impression that the Ministers know best what's going on in their ministries, and bet you, once you have a chance to watch (if you don't, go youtube and search malaysia parliament, dapvideo, media rakyat, etc), you will stunt there speechless knowing that your so called leaders are a bunch of crooks!

May God save Malaysian!!

Exclusive Interview - RPK Part 7 (translated)

RPK: Khairy is the future PM

Origianl Chinese version here

"The longer Pak Lah stays on, greater chances will be for his son-in-law Khairy to be the future Prime Minister."

"If you want to talk about the future PM candidates, my prediction is:
1. Khairy
2. Tengku Razaleigh
3. Muhyddin
4. Anwar
5. Najib

Of course the positions make shift depending on political environment. The main consideration is how long Pak Lah can hod on to the power. If he can be for another 10 years, then Khairy will definitely be the Prime Minister in future."

Exclusive Interview - RPK Part 6 (translated)

Ketuanan Melayu Vanishing? RPK: "BULLSHIT!"

Origianl Chinese version here

"Recently, UMNO has been playing racial card by claiming that Ketuanan Melayu is vanishing, and Chinese will emerge as the new master this country." RPK said, "There are even inside information saying that the UMNO veteran club is suggesting the same tactic as May 13 to re-affirm Ketuanan Melayu."

"This is a BIG bullshit from UMNO, from the facts, Ketuanan Melayu is at its height than before!"

"The best election results for BN is year 2004, UMNO won 110 seats, PAS 9 seats, PKR 1 seat, all in all there are 120 seats. As for the current election, total number of Malay Parliamentarians are: UMNO 78 seats, PAS 23 seats, PKR 20 seats, there are all in all 121 seats, thus 308 GE is at the peak of Ketuanan Melayu judging from the number of Malay lawmakers in the Parliament! What is there for UMNO to make noise?"

I was impressed by RPK's quick and accurate response, and was laughing to my knees. He said, those who should cry foul are Chinese and Indians, really, MCA lost half of its seats, MIC is almost paralyzed, Gerakan is the worst, the only one left is Tan Lian Ho. "Ok lah, it is just UMNO is no longer the single biggest Malay party in the Parliament, but the Rakyat feels much more comfortable as one strong party may just ignore the interest of the Rakyat."

"UMNO telling Malay that the Chinese are in power now, they said it is just like 1969, thus, it should be settled using the same solution. Aiya! Why make it so serious like the sky is going to fall, but May 13 version II still cannot cook up? Because, UMNO cannot afford to have the Malay on the streets again, even if it is not all, majority of Malay are watching the Government's move."

"We Malay condemned those MCA members who are willing to protect their own interest by encouraging May 13 version II!"

Exclusive Interview - RPK Part 5 (translated)

RPK: Islamic law is not possible

Origianl Chinese version here

"I have mentioned far too many times, it is impossible for Hadi Awang to realise Islamic Law, because PAS will never have 150 seats. In reality, the entire Pakatan Rakyat still don't have the required seats. Listen carefully, PAS needs atleast 150 seats to amend the Constitution paving way for Islamic Law!" Really, unless you want to be a criminal, else why should you care if it is Islamic Law or not?

Exclusive Interview - RPK Part 4 (translated)

How much content is real? RPK: It's up to you!

Original Chinese version here

I was a little to fast that I throw RPK the question that exactly how much information in the Malaysia Today website is real.

I learned a lesson: never provoke and get involved debating with RPK, once started, he will keep talking with facts kept well in his memory. You need not talk, in fact, you'll have no chance to talk.

"UMNO said bloggers are liars, jobless, or house wives who have got nothing better to do, or those who hunt for bargain air tickets! in 2005, Malaysia Today said Khairy will be contesting for Rembau State seat, yes, we lied, because eventually he contest for Rembau Parliamentary seat.

"2006, we said Pak Lah will marry Jane Abdullah in March 2007, we lied, because he married in June 2007."

"July 2007, we said General Election will be March 15, 2008, the polling day was March 8, we missed by 7 days."

"We said the Oppositions take 90 seats, we lied, they took 82 seats."

"We said the Oppositions will grab the state government of Kelantan, Trengganu, Perlis, Kedah and Penang. We lied, Trengganu and Perlis is still under BN, it is replaced by Perak and Selangor. However, it is still 5 states."

"Well, It's up to you to believe!"
