The Whisperer Salutes All The Woman of The World...

Island of Life

She sees me

She understands

She helps

With all of my fears

When we stand together for life

Who will hold a child

In her arms

She reaches out

So many friends

Who seek to live this world

When we stand together for life

She will hold a child

In her arms


Without woman

Earth would fade and die

Without woman

Who am I

Who am I

On this Island of Faith

Who am I

On this Island of Life

You are the Sea

You are the Sky

You are the Ocean

I am the Earth

I am the Island of your Love

She listens

She understands

For those searching for truth

We will stand together for life

We will hold a child

In our arms


She sees me

She understands

She helps

With all of my fears

When we stand together for life

She will hold a child

In her arms


Dreams are the understanding of life

Dreams are the understanding of love

(Music by Kitaro, Sang by Jon Anderson)

Defamation Trial: First Hurdle Cleared!!

Yes! The judge was late again. Session started at around 10:30am. Pete was given the honour to warm up the dock seat. The judge delivered his judgement agreeing with the defense that the transfer of this case to his court could be unconstitutional. Therefore, he allowed the High Court to decide on whether this case should be heard in session court or the magistrate court. The decision is to be fixed on Dec 15th.
Every supporters kept their composure this time after the lashing from the judge during the habeas corpus trial. So the congratulatory notes were confined to outside the courtroom. 'Yeh Yeh! Kita Menang' was the first word that came out from Pete's mouth as he emerged from the courtroom.
Sure looks like Pete and his team of counsels are on a roll. Victory after victory, they prevail. The toughest being the habeas corpus which set him free from 'detention without trial'. All these are good signs to The Whisperer. There are definitely more to come. That's without doubt.
'Yeh Yeh! Kita Menang' Again, Pete. Congratulation!!

Listen to MalaysiaKini's interview with Pete.

Way to go, Pete. Speaking with such confidence. Any doubters here?? Take a clue off me. You can't mess around with this Bloke. Truth Always Prevails.

Marina Lee Abdullah: Tribute From The People Who Walk With You..

Love is passionate and deep. It will drive you to do crazy things for each other, be it madness or being acrobatic. But loving a person is actually by knowing all the faults, knowing the good and the bad and still choosing to be together – that is love.
Many of us do not have first-hand knowledge of what married life entails. But I have thought long and hard about it. And I am ready for whatever it may bring – it brought me three wonderful children.
Many of us should consider ourselves insanely lucky to have found the woman who fits beautifully in our life.
The saddest moment in a married life is when we start to take each other for granted. What more when the little bubbling cutie arrives year after year? Time is stretched unbearably with the unending chores and the circle of friend dwindles to a miserably few. With the grace of God, we will live to be grandparents but most of us will see their children leaving the nest to roast on their own. This is when we have to learn to bear the silence each day without hearing their voices.
Any woman is an inspiration to the heart and gives meaning to all the things in life that are frequently left unexplained. The strength of a woman lies deeply within her soul and it is from the depths of that soul, where pain and frustration are often times hidden. So, men will have to salute women for their strength, their power, and the unique abilities that make them what they are. Marina Lee Abdullah is this breed of a woman.

It is futile to spend hours upon hours mulling it over in our heads, trying to make sense of it because she is right before our eyes.

When the inevitable moment comes which make it seems so hopeless and endless, just stretch out your hand in the dark and you will feel her beside you. Her warmth saturates in the lonely air, unseen but soothing. Then, lay your head between her bosoms and listen to the medley of her heartbeat vibrating into your ears. It will be a whole new world to feel the love of your woman to roam unbridled among the myriad of stars in your imagination.

Man will never be alone even in the most trying situation, because she is always there to stand by him. - Tribute from EyeSpy

Hours earlier on the same day, there was a Pro - ISA rally organized by Perwaris. Where were the police? Where is the permit? Read the full report here.

Later, about 500 of the coalition’s members held a peaceful gathering outside their meeting place at Wisma Sejarah before going to the Jalan Tun Razak police station to lodge their reports.

During the gathering, a woman who was standing at an overhead pedestrian bridge shouted obscenities at the group.

Some members of the group responded with shouts while others chased her before they were stopped by policemen.

There were reports of traffic jams and hostility towards road users by the marchers. Why did the local main stream media chose to paint a different picture here? Peaceful, my foot. Where were the FRU? Clearly. a double standard practice again.
Spot the difference between the two groups? The Civilized and The Uncivilized.

A Deserving Tribute: Haris Ibrahim

This email came in late yesterday. Someone has requested me to blog this tribute on his behalf. Thank you, EyeSpy. It's my pleasure to do so as I do share your sentiment and I am sure many anak anak Bangsa Malaysia out there share the same.
Bro Haris, this one is for you from the hearts of many anak Bangsa Malaysia out there..


For years, I have been looking and observing people from the eye of my camera. Each individual has a story to tell from what is in their minds projecting on their faces. The questions people ask and even the silent ones do not make much difference because what is important comes from what can be deciphered.
How important it is to me to know about virtuous people is beyond words especially those who have the humility. It is the trait profiles bulging in my archive that I have to share unreservedly. The reason for my pick is about this man whose personal values such as love and justice for the people prevail like a sore thumb.
People, I am talking about Haris Ibrahim.
I saw him weep for joy when Raja Petra emerged a free man in Shah Alam High Court. I saw him with the people in the candlelight vigils. I saw him trying hard to help people fight for the right cause. He is a selfless gentleman! We should not leave him alone but to join hands even at the most trying time we are going through.
On behalf of all who share the common truth, we salute you sir, for who you are and what you are. God blessed. - EyeSpy

Abdul Razak Baginda: How About Telling Us The Truth?

Abdul Razak: Najib not involved
Nov 20, 08 10:29am
Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is not involved in the Altantuya murder case, claimed former political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda today.
Read MalaysiaKini report in full here.

That was fast. Only acquitted for slightly more than two weeks and he is out defending his master. And we, bloggers get the blame for creating this perception. Forget about all the stories that lead to Altantuya's C4-ed. We, bloggers made up the stories. That includes all the main stream medias.
How convenient! Just call for a press conference just to defend and push the blame on others. Obviously, this guy knows something about this C4-ed murder and he is not telling us at all. Another big blow to the prosecutors integrity. Insufficient evidence, my foot. His press statement already tells us that he knew something. Otherwise, how can he be so cocksure that Najib and Rosmah are not involve? What about those trading of sms-es pertaining to this case? Acted out of concern for Razak Baginda? Where's Bala?

We Are In Fact Paying More For Petrol Now...

Am I surprised? Not at all. When the government hiked the fuel price drastically in June, I already smelled their rotten intention for two valid reasons: First, is to get more money into their hands and secondly, is to remove fuel subsidy all together. Refer to my earlier post before the fuel hike here..
And as of the world crude price today, it has fallen by more than 50% from the day our government made that decision to hike the fuel price by a whopping 78 sen per litre. If we take the pump price in Singapore or US which is more reflective to the world crude price, we, Malaysians of a net oil exporting nation, are actually paying more than a lot of nations around the world regardless of net oil importing or exporting status. Refer here for some simple arithmetic.
So you see, this is exactly the type of rotten government we have. They don't have any business mind to carry this country forward. All they can do is to find ways to fleece the rakyat just to get more money into their corrupted hands. Imagine a net oil exporting nation charging premium price on her rakyat. On top of that, we have to pay excessive tolls for using the infrastructures and all sorts of duties and taxes. Where have all the money gone to? Go add up all the cost of the the existing overpriced infrastructures that have been put up by this Umno government and take it off the royalties they have been receiving for Petronas.. Yeah.. where have all the money gone to!!! What about the delay in adjusting the fuel prices in tandem with the world crude price? Everyday is more money into their hands. Who is going to keep track of that savings?
Truly a destructive government! Truly a Nation in Distress.

RPK's Visit to Sentul Police Station: Another Freaking Joke!!

Just got back to the office from Sentul police station. I reached the station slightly after 3pm and Pete was still hanging around outside in the presence of his lawyers, 50 odd supporters and army of press reporters. The whole thing lasted about 30 minutes.

Pete told the reporters that he refused to give any statement to the police as he finds it ridiculous to go through the same thing over and over again. He has been detained unlawfully and been questioned for over 10 days in the recent past. And the context of Jakim's absurd report has something in relation to one of the charges that landed him in Kamunting for 55 days.

Pixs from MarkSmith

So, what the fxxk is all these? Just because one of their doggy organisation made a absurd report, these running dogs has to act on it. With efficiency, some more. What's the hurry? There are more reports made against this toyol guy and so far, we get no reaction from them. Fxxking double standard they practised here. Umno goons above the kangaroo law, is it?

PJ Vigil: A Remarkable Recovery...

An amazing comeback! At least 200 people from all walks and of all age, cast away their fear last night and come out in solidarity to protest against the draconian ISA, totally undeterred by last Sunday's police thuggery acts.

"This is easily the sweetest vigil I have attended so far for it gives us a sense of victory over those odds that have been stacked against us. And that, made this vigil more meaningful. Yeah.. The People prevail again. Our Spirit remains unbroken. This is the heartening factor and I am extremely happy". - The Whisperer

That's about all I could summed it up. As a habitual backbencher who prefer to observe from a distance and mingling around with fellow staunch supporters and new ones, I cannot provide a detailed report as to what was been said in those speeches. Click Steest, kkitsam and pengthots for better account. There were teary eyes around. Must have been hit by this euphoria for the first time. Or perhaps by the sense of victory or maybe, the Oneness feeling.

Obama «reddet» Mary - betalte reisen til Norge

Oct 05, 2008

The Norwegian newspaper VG has reported a truly amazing story about a newly-wed trying to get to Norway to be with her husband, and the stranger who helped pay an unexpected luggage surcharge. The blog "Leisha's Random Thoughts" has translated the story.

It was 1988, and Mary Andersen was at the Miami airport checking in for a long flight to Norway to be with her husband when the airline representative informed her that she wouldn't be able to check her luggage without paying a 100 surcharge:

When it was finally Mary's turn, she got the message that would crush her bubbling feeling of happiness.

-You'll have to pay a 103 dollar surcharge if you want to bring both those suitcases to Norway, the man behind the counter said.

Mary had no money. Her new husband had traveled ahead of her to Norway, and she had no one else to call.

-I was completely desperate and tried to think which of my things I could manage without. But I had already made such a careful selection of my most prized possessions, says Mary.

As tears streamed down her face, she heard a "gentle and friendly voice" behind her saying, "That's okay, I'll pay for her." Mary turned around to see a tall man whom she had never seen before.

-He had a gentle and kind voice that was still firm and decisive. The first thing I thought was, Who is this man?

Although this happened 20 years ago, Mary still remembers the authority that radiated from the man.

-He was nicely dressed, fashionably dressed with brown leather shoes, a cotton shirt open at the throat and khaki pants, says Mary.

She was thrilled to be able to bring both her suitcases to Norway and assured the stranger that he would get his money back. The man wrote his name and address on a piece of paper that he gave to Mary. She thanked him repeatedly. When she finally walked off towards the security checkpoint, he waved goodbye to her.

Who was the man?

Barack Obama.

Twenty years later, she is thrilled that the friendly stranger at the airport may be the next President and has voted for him already and donated 100 dollars to his campaign:

-He was my knight in shining armor, says Mary, smiling.

She paid the 103 dollars back to Obama the day after she arrived in Norway. At that time he had just finished his job as a poorly paid community worker* in Chicago, and had started his law studies at prestigious Harvard university.

Mary even convinced her parents to vote for him:

In the spring of 2006 Mary's parents had heard that Obama was considering a run for president, but that he had still not decided. They chose to write a letter in which they told him that he would receive their votes. At the same time, they thanked Obama for helping their daughter 18 years earlier.

And Obama replied:

In a letter to Mary's parents dated May 4th, 2006 and stamped 'United States Senate, Washington DC', Barack Obama writes:

'I want to thank you for the lovely things you wrote about me and for reminding me of what happened at Miami airport. I'm happy I could help back then, and I'm delighted to hear that your daughter is happy in Norway. Please send her my best wishes. Sincerely, Barack Obama, United States Senator'.

The parents sent the letter on to Mary.

Mary says that when her friends and associates talk about the election, especially when race relations is the heated subject, she relates the story of the kind man who helped out a stranger-in-need over twenty years ago, years before he had even thought about running for high office.

Truly a wonderful story, and something that needs to be passed along in the maelstorm of fear-and-smear politics we are being subjected to right now.

UPDATE: Thanks for the recommends, folks! Also, remember this was 1988, when 100 dollars was quite a bit of money, compared to today's value.

By the way, this would be the perfect antidote to the Smear E-mails going around. If anyone has a good long email chain list, shoot it out, and let it be passed along.

Comments: The text above consists for the most part of a translation done by Oslo, Norway blogger Leisha Camden of a news story that appeared in Verdens Gang, Norway's largest daily newspaper, on Oct. 14, 2008. The original article included a photo of 51-year-old Mary Menth Andersen of Asgardstrand, Norway displaying a letter her parents received from Barack Obama in 2006.

Andersen, who was born in the United States and whose parents still live in California, married a Norwegian man in 1988 and was about to fly across the Atlantic to join him when an unexpected baggage surcharge threatened to ground her in Miami. A tall, well-dressed good Samaritan stepped forward to pay the $103 fee in full. The name he wrote down on a slip of paper over a return address in Kansas was "Barack Obama."

Eighteen years later when Barack Obama was considering a run for the presidency, Mary Andersen's parents sent him a letter of encouragement, also thanking him for the good deed he had done for their daughter so long ago. Obama's cordial response is quoted in the email above and is on display in the Verdens Gang press photo of Andersen.

A reporter for the Santa Rosa, California Press Democrat confirmed the story with Andersen's mother and father, Peter and Mary Menth, in an article published Oct. 26, 2008.

Market Trend: A Whole New Cycle Ahead...

An explosive fireworks finale to mark the end of the cycle which ended yesterday, November 12th... We hit a low of 801 on Oct 28th and that subsequently, triggered off an explosive display of strength. Composite Index hit a high of 926/7 level on Nov 5th and has since mellowed southbound with dwindling volume.
What this new cycle is going to bring us remains everybody guess..
After applying the cycle approach and knowing that we are into a new cycle starting today, we may now take a look at the all the factors and parameters available. This would involves piecing work like trying to piece a jigsaw together.
From the recent market movement, we can see that it was quite a broad base movement. One interesting sign that needs further behaviour studies. Was there a round of sweeping up undervalued stocks? Or was it a just a short play up to distribute whatever position 'they' took during the heavy margin force selling earlier? Only further observation can tell with time. 'They' refers to the hands behind this movement.
And from other parts of the world, Dow is trading at near its critical level now. A breach at this level would see a new low for Dow indices. Real economy is of no help either. Indicators continue to show major slowdown with threat of increasing unemployment. Europe? Like I have said way earlier, Europe is going to bear the biggest blunt of this subprime bubble. Simply because they were at the receiving end at the subprime peak.
Back to the local front, my immediate take is that we may have to go through another cycle of consolidation with more downside. Since volume has fizzled off quite substantially, there will be selective manipulation of certain stocks. Be wary and don't get trap into their distribution game. Critical support stands at 832/33 level. Critical in the sense that a breach would triggers off a 'hell breaks loose' market meaning that a low in the Composite Index would be set.
A conservative approach is to stay on the sideline for more concrete signs. Don't be fooled by the recent fireworks finale. Trade the futures. Short on strength for the time being.
Until the next update, good luck!

'An Angry Night to Remember' by The JourneyMan...

The Anti-ISA Candlelight Vigil gathering on the 9th.November 2008 was a meaningful and memorable one for those who were present. But, it was marred by the sudden arrest of some participants at the field of MBPJ in the midst of singing Negaraku. I was one of them detained. My name is Sunny Lim and let me take you with me, no rather with us (those who were detained on the same night with me) for an unprecedented experience in that memorable night.

The weather was kind and the night air was filled with patriotism. The national anthem was heard loud and clear sung by all present in unison. Before it was over, my arm was grabbed by a plainclothes officer. I suffered shock for a moment and wondering what had gone wrong. I remained composed and walked along with him. This particular officer was kind to me perhaps it was my age. I am a 58-year old man who only wanted to play a societal role to call for the abolishment of ISA in a peaceful way. Lighting a candle to show us the way will not even hurt a fly. However, I could not hold a candle because the video cam in my hand will help me to record all the wonderful moments and the peace-loving people around.

The Melee when The Police charged in

This particular officer allowed me to my requests – to walk with him (no doubt he was still holding on my arm), to leave my video cam alone, and let me climb up the truck by myself.

It was pitch-dark inside and I moved to where I could see with the help of the light shinning in from the road. I was not alone! Someone had beaten me to it. I sat down oblivious to whoever was in there. The first thing that surged in my mind was my daughter who came with her boyfriend. I called her and was happy that they did not have to share the same predicament. Then, my voice rang out. “Girl I have been arrested. I am fine, please tell mum not to worry.”

Well, it is the usual endearment you and I will say when a situation like this arises. Of course, she will worry like hell or perhaps will go hysteria by the news of my arrest or ballistic for not heeding her advice not to go. However, my beloved wife has none as such except to allow me to my decision and with her caring words that I should look after myself. Well, what are spouses for anyway? Perhaps, I failed to look after myself well that night and had caused the tears of anguish to fill her eyes instead.

Yes, I failed to look after myself because I refused to budge while singing the National Anthem. Yes, I failed to look after myself because I showed my patriotism, and Yes, I failed to look after myself to be with the other peace-loving Malaysians. This was how a 58-year old Malaysian man had finally failed himself!

I remained composed but not for long because one by one arrested was hauled in. A young man in his early twenties was disorientated with both his hands cuffed behind him. We told him that he was not alone and no one would leave him behind. It was not our assurance but our promise.

Abruptly, a man was pushed in and he fell on his back with his hands cuffed behind him. He could not get up and yelled for our help to lift him up, and in a jiffy uncountable hands were all over him. He screamed at the police to loosen his handcuffs but was shouted back by the police to shut up. I was as helpless and unable to help him except to give a few words of encouragement to hold on. He had to bear the agony inflicted around his wrists for nearly an hour.

Then, a woman entered with her hands cuffed behind her back too. Later, I got to know her name. She is Angela and of my age. Her son was not under arrest at that point of time but to accompany his mother to the truck. He was arrested too for doing so. Arresting her with handcuff behind her back had made me a very very angry man. However, I was blessed that I had a newfound younger sister.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw a priest in white robe was helped up into the truck. He could not hear me calling him “Father” because I had a lump in my throat looking at what I should not be seeing. But at least, I had the honour to hold on his elbow to help him up.

Then, I saw a few Yang Berhormat(s) and lawyers were not spared too. For the lawyers to ask the police why we were arrested, they were arrested as well for asking. Just fantastic! It was a pandemonium actually and everyone was busy making calls with their hand phones.

As we cruised along, I began to feel like we were the cattle being taken to a slaughter house. You may wonder why I chose such figures of speech. The truth is because of the way how those unlucky ones were manhandled.

We reached our destination and were kept for some 20 minutes in the stuffy truck. Then the FRU officers arrived to encircle the area meant to be a parking lot to ensure that none of us would depict the movie - The Great Escape. But none of us was Charles Bronson in the making that night but peaceful Malaysians as ourselves.

We were asked to sit while the FRU officers were watching us like a hawk. The first hour, everyone was busy either answering incoming calls or to respond to “sms(es)”. We got to know each other and we had a tale to tell.

Then, fireworks took to the sky and we acknowledged spontaneously with claps and cheers. Bersih had announced its first anniversary! Many of us were not amused. It was because by having to share the same venue that the police took such action.

I sat by myself after getting to know everyone because my anger refused to leave my system. Each person I got to know I could see their eyes were telling me a story. The police offered us a carton of cupped drinks and my parched throat had no complaint.

Then, I spoke to my wife and she was calm, but her voice betrayed her. It cracked with concern and kept asking about the well-being of those who were with me. Whose spouse would not ask and be concerned may I ask?

As dawn was about to break, my vision blurred because looking at those with me, the silent message of solidarity emerged to harness my belief that Malaysians are beginning to stand up and be counted for the reason they believed in. I released a pretentious yawn to hide my emotion and wiped away the angry tears accumulated in my eyes. I shed my silent tears for a reason - the reason that I believe in our Jalur Gemilang!

Exhaustion seeped in as the clock ticked away.

Friends and sympathizers gathered and sang the National Anthem outside the police station. They stayed on expecting that we would be released around 4.00 a.m. but were disappointed. So were we. Some found their way into the adjacent building and gave us the roar of support that they were with us. It was very touching and we all waved back to acknowledge their kind gesture at such a time of need.

ADUN LauWeng San was assaulted by the police

What have gone wrong with our system? For a Member of Parliament to be subjugated to such uncalled for treatment is horrendous! Shouldn’t the police be mobilized to provide protection rather than to make blatant arrest? Man, woman and child were about to disperse after singing the National Anthem and such mayhem was downright unnecessary.

15 lawyers from the Selangor Bar Council arrived within an hour. They advised us how to go about making the statement and our right to remain silent. They did not come empty handed. Fried chickens and drinks were sufficient for all of us and were the welcomed sight. We thank you sir, for your compassion.

The bailers came after our statements were recorded. Many shook our hands instead. For what I wondered. Simple. If it is not you, it will be us to be arrested too. Strangers became friends and friends became brothers and sisters among Malaysians that brought forth the unity for a good cause with just a little white candle to burn brilliantly in the dark under the Malaysian starry sky.

In jubilant mood despite the long wait

I reached home and silently sneaked into my room. On the half-empty bed laid my beloved wife snuggling under the comforter not realizing I was home. I knew she could not sleep and perhaps her exhaustion had taken the toil. Refusing to wake her up, I left the room leaving the hiss escaping from the air-conditioner dart to sing her the lullaby.
