In school, we were told to be obedience and be useful to the society when we grown up.
When we came out from school, we were told that whatever the Government does is good for all of us and we must appreciate.
But we see one after another, mishandling of trust of the people who voted the ruling regime. We witnessed one after another abuse of power from those who are suppose to uphold the law of this land.
We see one after another justice not being served in the manner we were told since we were young.
What we wanted is humbly dream of living on the mother land of ours in harmony and peace.
We ask for nothing more than justice being served. Nothing more than a caring Government whom we will work hand in hand to face any challenges should there be any.
We want not to differenciate with our own brothers and sisters on this land by colours.
And we respect others on this land whom we have been living together to forge for a better tomorrow.
Hand in hand we shall build this land a paradise where there's no fight among ourselves.
Some passively complained that we are just too small to make visible changes. Some said they could not care less about what's going on and just live with it.
But if we aren't doing anything to tell those whom we have elected, or trusted to manage on behalf, we failed.
So stand up, brothers and sisters, speaks up. Your voices and comments will not irritate the others if you speaks up truthfully.
Let's work together to put someone whom we can trust to work than to passively complain or quitely accepted whatever has thrown to us.
There will always be tomorrow where the sun will rise again after a full night.
There will always be laughther after pain.
Remember, the future is shaped on how we act today. Do it, wait no more!

Kugan, a car thief suspect, died in the police custody on the eve of Chinese New Year. He has been detained earlier for 5 days before he passed away. His family was not notified until hours after his dead.
Both the Inspector General of Police, and the Selangor State Police Chief claimed Kugan collapsed after he drank water and the first post-mortem report certified that he died due to water in his lunge.
How would a normal young man drink water until water got into his lunge? I wonder if both IGP and CPO of Selangor really understand what transpired during the investigation until such a person died with water on his lunge. Should the Police make it a point in the future where no drinking of water for any suspect during investigation to avoid the same incident from happening again?
Then our beloved Home Affair Minister Syed Hamid commented as titled: Don't make criminal a Hero.
Well, the Kapar MP is correct that it is police themselves making the suspect as a hero. If there's no such incident, no one could have bother who is Kugan, really!
Then some assholes from 'NGO' warned the public not to blow the issue as it is sensitive to others.
Asshole! A life was taken away, don't tell me that Kugan perished with a glass of water (probably some assholes can demonstrate how a glass of water can take away a young man's life).
Some other assholes warned "Don't make this a racial issue"
Well, quite right, this is not a racial issue, this is a national issue. On record as revealed in the Parliament, hundreds of detainees died under the police custody. Yes, they may be suspect of criminal offences, but who took their lives away? Are they all drink the magic water and collapsed? Or are they, like Hudini the great, able to bring out string or rope that is strong enough to hang themselves in the lockup often left with underwear or sometime naked?
Did they deserve what they had?
This country is sick, very sick!!!!

A little background on this:
Air Asia, teaming up with Sime Darby Berhad, is pushing for a PFI (Private Funding Initiative) project to build a new budget air terminal at Labu, approximately 10Km away from KLIA.
Of course, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, the manager of the KLIA, is opposing the move, claiming that KLIA does have a similar plan and objective, aka KLIA North.
Thus, the two sides exchanges, and it seems Air Asia won the first round when the Government announced the project, however, was subsequently depressed by the same Cabinet to call for a review of the project.
From the surface, it is easy to understand why Khazanah, the Government Investment arm, which owns both Sime Darby and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), prefers not to have an airport outside MAHB's control. Furthermore, Khazanah is also the major shareholder of the National Carrier, Malaysia Airline Systems (MAS).
Should Air Asia successfully built the airport, MAHB and MAS will stand to loose the most.
It looks like Air Asia is the victim of the alleged unfair practice by MAHB to deter Air Asia from advancing into otherwise territory of MAS.
This many favoured Air Asia to run it's own airport instead. The supporters of KLIA East argued that with airport within Air Asia's control, the budget carrier will be able to manage the airport more efficiently hence able to maintain low fare.
I do have doubts, perhaps my doubts may have been brought up by others, or it may have already been answered by either sides, but I am still wanted to raise here.
Why should Khazanah openly oppose the KLIA East project whereas it can choose to reason to the Cabinet before the announcement is made.
Khazanah, having representatives sitting both in MAHB and Sime Darby. For such a deal with Air Asia, Sime Darby Board would have been brief, or endorsed the project. Why Khazanah did not block the project at the Board level and instead chose to object openly in public?

There's virtually no food, except for fast food chain which is still open.
I then decided to travel to my wife's home town for our very late dinner, it was almost 10:30pm when we started travel, and reach around 40 minutes later.
Of course, everyone else have eaten.
After having our dinner, there started the highlight of the new year: praying to the God when the hours' up.

Celcom 3G has been very unstable this week, and become worse today when the data network is totally out!
This will of course screwed up their potential revenue since MMS is affected too.
A call to Celcom careline learned that the celco is experiencing nationwide breakdown in the midst of holiday season, and there's no further information on why it went down and when will the service be resumed.
I depend a lot on 3G for my work and information gathering. When the network is down, I am practically handicapped.
Although I can always stay at home or go get a place where wifi is available, but this will limit my mobility, the primary reason to have a 3G plan.
What Celcom should do is to blast out a message on service outrage to inform it's customer instead of being blasted over the care line?

I told them, the Burmese labourers, that I respect Aung San Suu Kyi for her courage to fight for her people.
They smiled, then they asked me to take the above pictures.

Snapped this image from in front of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, a signboard entirely in English.
Why there's only English signboard where it should be at-least bi-lingual, i.e. Bahasa Melayu as the nation's official language, and English and/or other languages.
Why those who shouted Ketuanan Melayu, willing to scarify their life to defend the Supremacy of Malay, did not pressure KL Convention Centre to have Bahasa Melayu on signboard.
Let's see who is behind KL Convention Centre.... from their website:
"Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is managed and operated by Convex Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company between KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd and AEG Ogden Pty Ltd, Australia. It is owned by Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Petroliam National Berhad (PETRONAS)."
So when Cabinet Ministers and Barisan Nasional political beings accused the Penang State Government for erecting (just recalled the ex Information Minister can pronounce this word perfectly -- remember the live tele-interview by Al-Jazeera, election was pronounced as erection!) multi-lingual signboards at strategic locations.
WHY THEY MISSED OUT THE STATE-OWNED PETROLEUM COMPANY SUBSIDIARY for not adhering to the National Language Policy?
Cakap tak serupa bikin!!!!

counting since 6pm. The iPhone is certainly playing the most important
part as both of us trying to grab to see what's the latest.
We were disappointed when Malaysia Insider and Malaysia Kini both
reported that BN led by 700+ votes around 7:40pm, but incoming SMSs
and later news proven otherwise where PAS leads handsomely and
consistently maintain a margin of 2000.
Thank God, thanks to all on the field, the voters acknowledge your
call for CHANGE and acted wisely.
Now, it is another step closer to Putrajaya for Pakatan Rakyat. For
Najib and BN, this is another humiliation that the voters have send a
Syabas to the winner and his team, those who have devoted their effort
to make this possible, thank you again.

you have done and make it possible.

Well, it has been quite a while my area is not covered by mist. Early in the morning when returning home around 0200, thick mist covering the whole residential area right from the entrance 6Km away from my house.
