Bagan Pinang: The Might Of Awareness Vs The Power Of Machinery...

With the naming of candidates from both opposing parties, the battle begins in Bagan Pinang. It will be a closely watch contest between former MB Isa Samad of BN and NS PAS chief Zulkefly Omar, representative of the coalition Pakatan Rakyat.
Once again, The Barisan Rakyat Bloggers are called upon into the battlefield. This time, it is going to be different as we will be battling it out on the enemy front with a clear disadvantage, that is, the vast amount of postal votes.
So much has been said about the postal votes but clearly, nothing much can be done as this is part of their machinery.
Nevertheless, this fight must go on regardless of all the dirty tricks that they are going to throw at us. Whether at advantage or disadvantage, the Barisan Rakyat Bloggers remains committed to what they originally set out to do. Creating awareness among the people against the evil deeds of those who walks the corridor of power. That has always been our weapon.
With the recent declassification of PKFZ cabinet papers and the racial stoking of cow's head incident, I would like to believe that these revelations have put us ahead despite the mathematical odds that is stacked against us. A higher turnout would improves our chance against the evil regime as I believe the people have matured and are now more aware of the evil doings of this corrupted and abusive regime.
This is a fight between Awareness and Machinery.
Lawan Tetap Lawan. Win or lose, we shall always walk with pride as we know that we are doing the right thing for the betterment of the country and its people. We are Barisan Rakyat Bloggers and we are for The People.

Inilah barisan kita, Yang ikhlas berjuang.
Siap sedia berkorban, Untuk ibu pertiwi!
Sebelum kita berjaya, Jangan harap kami pulang!
Inilah sumpah pendekar kita, Menuju medan bakti!
Andai kata kami gugur semua, Taburlah bunga di atas pusara.
Kami mohon doa, Malaysia berjaya!
Semboyan telah berbunyi, Menuju medan bakti!

By-Election Gimmick In Play: Charging Kugan's Murderers!

So timely after 8 months of denial and facts fabrication. Suddenly, they decide to press charge against the murdering cop or cops with Bagan Pinang by-election around the corner.

You can expect Thanen's Makkal Sakthi party to stake their claim on this development but not on the cowhead issue since one cow-ard from the Home Ministry had issued a stern warning against anybody who talk about cow head issue during this coming by-election.
But are we going to be gullible to this new development?
Personally, I would take it with a pinch of salt. On what charge are they going to be charged? Is the judiciary going to be independent on this? History does not favor us here. Trial can go wrong technically. In fact, anything can happen along the way. So lets not rejoice until this is over and until Kugan's murderers are send to Hell.
There wont be talks on cow head but you can expect to hear lot of MOOs on the coastal town of Bagan Pinang soon.

Moooooooooorugiah... Nah!!

RPK Defending His Court Cases From Exile? Altantuya Lives Again...

Another case under the OSA for the IGP to NFA
This means these two army officers were in the home of the then Deputy Prime Minister for about eight hours during the time Altantuya was supposed to have been murdered. Why they were there during those eight hours and who these two army officers are has not been revealed.
Raja Petra Kamarudin
The Malaysian government says Altantuya Shaariibuu was murdered between 10.00pm on October 19th and 1.00am on October 20th, 2006. That was the charge against Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar and that was what they were pronounced guilty of.
At 10.01pm on 19th October 2006, two unnamed army officers went to Najib Tun Razak’s house, according to log entry 6494 in the police guard book. (See log 1a and log 2a below). These same two unnamed army officers left Najib’s house at 6.05am on 20th October 2006, according to log entry 6498. (See log 1b and log 2b below).
The purpose of the visit was never clarified.
This means these two army officers were in the home of the then Deputy Prime Minister for about eight hours during the time Altantuya was supposed to have been murdered. Why they were there during those eight hours and who these two army officers are has not been revealed.
From 10.01pm the night Altantuya was murdered until 6.05am the following morning, two army officers visited the Deputy Prime Minister and/or his wife. This is certainly a most odd time to visit a Deputy Prime Minister and/or his wife in their home. And what does one do for eight hours in someone’s home during the time most people would be fast sleep?
According to Fauzi, a driver, Rosmah Mansor left the official residence of the Deputy Prime Minister in Putrajaya at 6.48am on 19th October 2006 using car registration number WLQ 11 to return to her private home in Taman Duta. The car odometer reading was 86,197. That same evening, Rosmah attended a function near the Tabung Haji building in Jalan Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur
She did not return home until 11.20pm later that night, according to Fauzi.
The next day, 20th October 2006, Rosmah left her official residence in Putrajaya at 6.32am using the same car bearing registration number WLQ 11 to, again, return to Taman Duta. She also ran a few errands and did not return to Putrajaya until 1.01am the following morning.
The odometer reading was 86,315.
On the third day, Rosmah repeated the itinerary. She left Putrajaya at 6.40am to return to her Taman Duta home and to run some errands and did not go back to Putrajaya until 9.34pm that night. The odometer reading was 86,550.
Over three days, Rosmah travelled more than 350 kilometres to shuttle from Putrajajaya to Taman Duta, plus to some other places in between, according to the records.
I suggest the IGP investigate how these 'officials secrets' managed to leak out and whether the Official Secrets Act (OSA) has been breached. Or maybe the IGP would rather bury the whole issue and file it under No Further Action (NFA) to save the Prime Minister and his wife from having to answer some very embarrassing questions.
Hmm...I wonder who these two unnamed army officers are and whether they were really at the Deputy Prime Minister's house those entire eight hours or whether they sneaked out and in again without any 'official record'.
Ooh, I just love the OSA that protects the wrongdoer and instead sends the whistleblower to jail.

Harvard Business School To Study Najibnomics? Gnanalingam, You Must Be Joking...

The Harvard Business School in Boston will undertake a case study, highlighting Prime Minister Najib Razak's “courageous and bold” initiatives to tackle financial crisis.
The case study, to be used as a subject in the core curriculum of the macro-economic module, will be a capstone on how crisis is transmitted internationally.
It will also discuss how a country that has sound fundamentals and good regulations could withstand an international crisis.
The country is known for consolidating the banking, insurance and financial institutions following the 1998 currency crisis, said Harvard Business School Alumni Club of Malaysia in a statement today.
Besides highlighting Najib's bold economic reforms, the Harvard study would also focus on the various economic liberalisation moves, measures taken to prepare the country for the Asean Free Trade Agreement (Afta) and World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations, said Alumni president G Gnanalingam.
“Harvard would also bring to attention how the country positions itself on free trade agreements with other countries and how its economic zones are poised for further foreign direct investment attractions.
“We in the alumni are proud to be associated with such a work as the study would become part of the syllabus programme and taught to thousands of international students.
“Moreover, the students at Harvard will hear about what the government and Bank Negara Malaysia have done since the 1998 crisis to regulate and stabilise the economy,” said Gnanalingam.
Previous case study on capital controls
The previous case study on Malaysia published in April 2002 entitled 'Malaysia – Capital and Control' written by Rawi Abdelai and Laura Alfaro, has been one of Harvard's most successful case studies. It analysed the political economy of capital controls in Malaysia during the 1997/98 Asian financial crisis.
It has been taught in every class for the last seven years not only to Harvard Business School students taking a masters degree in business administration but also to senior managers who attended executive programmes.
The students constantly praised the case study as it highlighted the views expressed by Malaysian leaders, the statement added.- Bernama Report
What Najibnomics? The whole write up is about 1997/98 Financial Crisis and where was Najib then?
Have we really gotten ourselves out of the 97/98 crisis? Over expansion through over-inflation of value. Over-borrowed and over-corrupt. That was the cause of the crisis. Our country was riding as high as twin tower on a 25 storey foundation. When the foundation starts to crack, the whole structure collapsed.
Hell broke loose. Everything just nosedived. Capital control was imposed. Petronas, banks and Epf have to bear the brunt while those with their ill-gotten gains through unscrupulous means stacked their gains elsewhere.
With adjustment of few parameters, everything looked good again. A new accounting base year was set in year 2000. From there, everything was swept under the carpet. How much was actually lost remains a mystery?
But the effects from the crisis is still felt till today. Ringgit remains weak against the dollar. Inflation remains high.
Najibnomics? He just took over few months back and they are giving him recognition so fast? Even before we see the effect of the RM67B rescue package which RM50B comes in the form of guarantees without money involved.
RM67B but where is the beef, Najib?
From layman point of view, everything has remained stagnant after deteoriating to a point that it cant go down any further.
Government spending though minimal is still not commission free and is not of any beneficiary to the people. 1Malaysia concept: 1Malaysia F1 team, Monsoon Cup and etc. etc..
Take it from the people through removal of subsidies, taxation, levies and whatnot to finance their commission infested projects.
That's Umnomics...

PAS Selangor Set To Doom With Hassan Ali At Helm...

Too strong a statement? Yes? Don't Believe? Then try us...

Selangor PAS has defended its boss Dr Hasan Ali who has again come under fire from his Pakatan Rakyat colleagues.

It's secretary Mohd Khairuddin Othman said Selangor PAS is also willing to 'study' the calls asking it to review its position in the coalition.

"If there are elected reps who suggest that PAS should review its position, we are ready to study this in detail," he added in a press statement today. Read in full Here.

Why not have a show of hands among Selangor PAS to see how many of the members actually support Hassan Ali's personal glory crusade? No point to have it's secretary coming out to make his stand through the press. It does not represents the view of its members.
It is glaring enough with Hassan Ali's recent behaviour that he has indeed prostituted himself to the tune of money and promised power courtesy of Toyol, of course. His outcry over SELCAT action can be construed as protecting his master.
PAS Selangor must not forget that they are the weakest link among the Selangor PR. It was because of them that PR narrowly lost two state seats during the 12th General Election. One state seat in Puchong constituency and the other at the Selayang constituency mainly because the older chinese folks still refused to accept them albeit the strong wind of change phenomenon.
PAS Selangor members must rise now if they want their party to survive. There is no two way around this now. Get rid of Hassan Ali to ensure PAS Selangor survival or disappear slowly into oblivion. The choice is in the members hands.
The death of PAS Selangor definitely wont affect PAS as a whole. After all, PAS Selangor is just a franchisee of PAS. The failure of one franchisee does not affect other franchisee as they are all independent from each other.
Reform Now or Face Our Wrath. And reform means Hassan Ali and his goons must go.

Reaching Out: SABM To Touch The Heart Of The People...

“It is about us coming together, tearing down the walls and uniting regardless of race, religion and colour. We must oppose prejudice because there is no such thing in the constitution,” said lawyer and social activist Haris Ibrahim, one of founders of the initiative.
“We must stop race being used as a criteria for discrimination,” he said. Haris said the people behind the initiative felt the political system is not focused on fostering a national identity.
“For a long time, we have been made victims of the divide-and-rule concept,” he said.“And we, civil society, are not doing our part even when we are watching the systematic dismantling of the nation.
“This is a chance to do something productive. Don’t just sit in the kopitiam and curse and complain.” - Haris Ibrahim

The Truth Behind ISA Detention: What Rehabiltation?

Politically Abuse As Political Tool To Silence Political Dissent

Who To Believe? Economy On The Road To Recovery?

Malaysia's domestic demand is showing clear signs of recovery prompted by the fiscal stimulus and an accommodative monetary policy, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz said today.
"We have seen the worst and there is now across the board improvement but the external sector has to show a more significant improvement in terms of external demand.
"But there are clear signs of recovery in domestic demand which has benefited from the fiscal stimulus and the accommodative monetary policy," she said.
Read The Rest Of Her Bulls Here..

At the same time, Telegraph came out with 'Economic recovery may be false dawn, warns Bank' today.

Now I wonder who to believe here. Is our economy now on self reliant mode? Are we sustainable purely based on domestic demand? Have we decouple ourselves from the rest of the world?

Tell you what I think here based on my experience. History has it that each time our leaders come out reassuring us, it's actually a sign of desperation. Remember during the 1997 financial crisis? Everyday we have our then PM cum Finance Minister harping down on us that our economy was still okay.. What a humbugger he was! And he wasn't alone then. Our bank governor joined in chorus. And each time they opened their mouth, the truth prevailed.

With that, I wouldn't buy their assurances if I were you...

67B rescue package working? Maybe the first 7B package is in progress as it was there to feed the warlords for their blessings to be PM. Read between those lines properly on how the money was spent.

Wake Up, Soldiers! This Country's Enemy Comes From Within...

I am sure we are very familiar with this logo by now.
Since April 09, we have been bombarded by this 1Malaysia concept promotion through billboards, mainstream media, government linked corporations and every possible ways they can think of..
Imagine hundreds of million is been spent to knock this propaganda into our brains. And that is not all.
Then the 1Malaysia F1 team came in to further promote 1Malaysia concept to the world. Another few hundred million yearly commitment with taxpayer's money.
But, do we rakyat need all these wasteful spendings just to promote the 1Malaysia concept?

Ironically while millions and possible billions is been used to promote Najib's version of 1Malaysia to the gullible world, the handling of the racist cow head incident singlehandedly undermined all that have been done thus far.

That says very much about the governance we have for our country. Why all this wastage of public funds for something that is not necessary in the first place?

Your guess is as good as mine.

The recent revelation by Raja Petra on our so called BN government's involvement in the 12.5B PKFZ scandal has finally nailed them to the wall. It clearly shows that it was not solely a MCA affair but the BN government as a whole to squander off the country's money. But, we all know that PKFZ is not the only scandal.

Below are some other filp flops posted by Antares on MalaysiaToday portal:

1. The Bank Bumiputra twin scandals in the early 1980s saw US$1 billion (RM3.2 billion in 2008 ringgit)

2. The Maminco attempt to corner the world tin market in the 1980s is believed to have cost some US$500 million. (RM1.6 billion)

3. Betting in foreign exchange futures cost Bank Negara Malaysia RM30 billion in the 1990s.

4. Perwaja Steel resulted in losses of US$800 million (RM2.56 billion). Eric Chia, was charged with corruption for allegedly steering US$20 million (RM64 million) to a Hong Kong-based company

5. Use of RM10 billion public funds in the Valuecap Sdn. Bhd. operation to shore up the stock market

6. Banking scandal of RM700 million losses in Bank Islam

7. The sale of M.V. Agusta by Proton for one Euro making a loss of €75.99 million (RM 348 million)

8. Wang Ehsan from oil royalty on Terengganu RM7.4 billion from 2004 – 2007

9. For the past 10 years since Philharmonic Orchestra was established, this orchestra has swallowed a total of RM500 million

10. In Advisors Fees, Mahathir was paid RM180,000, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (women and social development affairs) RM404,726 and Abdul Hamid Othman (religious) RM549,675 per annum

11. The government has spent a total of RM3.2 billion in teaching Maths and Science in English over the past five years. Out of the amount, the government paid a whopping RM2.21 billion for the purchase of information and computer technology (ICT) equipments which it is unable to give a breakdown.

12. The commission paid for purchase of jets and submarines to two private companies Perimeker Sdn Bhd and IMT Defence Sdn Bhd amounted to RM910 million.

13. RM300 million to compensate Gerbang Perdana for the RM1.1 billion “Crooked Scenic Half-Bridge”

14. RM1.3 billion have been wasted building the white elephant Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities on cancellation of the Malaysia-Singapore scenic bridge

15. RM 100 million on renovation of Parliament building and leaks

16. National Astronaut Programme - RM 40 million

17. National Service Training Programme - yearly an estimate of RM 500 million

18. Eye on Malaysia - RM 30 million and another RM5.7 million of free ticket

19. RM 4.63 billion, ’soft-loan’ to PKFZ

20. RM 2.4 million on indelible ink

21. Samy announced in September 2006 that the government paid compensation amounting to RM 38.5 billion to 20 highway companies. RM 380 million windfalls for 9 toll concessionaires earned solely from the toll hike in 2008 alone.

22. RM32 million timber export kickbacks involving companies connected to Sarawak Chief Minister and his family.

Bailouts –

23. Two bailouts of Malaysia Airline System RM7.9 billion. At a time when MAS incurring losses every year, RM1.55 million used to buy three paintings to decorate its chairman's (Munir) office.

24. Putra transport system bailout which cost RM4.486 billion.

25. STAR-LRT bailout costing RM3.256 billion.

26. National Sewerage System bailout costing RM192.54 million.

27. Seremban-Port Dickson Highway bailout costing RM142 million.

28. Kuching Prison bailout costing RM135 million.

29. Kajian Makanan dan Gunaan Orang Islam bailout costing RM8.3 million.

30. Le Tour de Langkawi bailout costing RM 3.5 Million.

31. Wholesale distribution of tens of millions of shares in Bursa Malaysia under guise of NEP to cronies, children and relatives of BN leaders and Ministers worth billions of ringgits.

32. APs scandal had been going on year-after-year going back for more than three decades, involving a total mind-boggling sum of tens of billions of ringgits.

33. Alienation of tens of thousands of hectares of commercial lands and forestry concessions to children and relatives of BN leaders and Ministers worth tens of billions of ringgits.

34. Travel around Malaysia and see for yourself how many white elephants like majestic arches, roads paved with fanciful bricks, designer lamp posts, clock towers, Municipal Council buildings that looks more like Istanas, extravagant places of worship, refurbishment of residences of VIPs, abandoned or under-utilised government sports complexes and buildings, etc! Combined they could easily amount to the hundreds of billions of ringgits!

35. Since 1997, Petronas has handed out a staggering 30 billion ringgit in natural gas subsidies to IPPs who were making huge profits. In addition, there were much wastage and forward trading of Petronas oil in the 1990s based on the low price of oil then. Since the accounts of Petronas are for the eyes of Prime Minister only, we have absolutely no idea of the amount.

And there are more... where has all these monies gone to? Siphoned off and wait for bailout from the government seemed to be the normal practise.

Read Bakun dam to be much worse than PKFZ scandal. Another classic example of their modus operandi. Timber gone and numerous bailout later. How much does it costs the rakyat? How much higher is the final cost from the initial budget? Pthui !!!

When Constitution Went Unconstitutionalized And Law Became Biased

The Perak State coup de'tat is another fine example of the abuse by those who walks the corridor of power. It involves the cops and the judiciary which make a mockery out of the state's constitution and our country judicial system.

The police highhanded manner in drowning the people's voice during the 1st August Anti ISA rally shows that our police force are practising double standard in enforcing the law and order. Why were we brutalized while others remain free even when they intentionally stoke racial sentiment? Crime rates remain high when they chose to mobilize their resources against peaceful marchers and vigilers.

Organized vices continue to operate gallantly under their watchful eyes. Organized as in with their blessing? No wonder one of the head said that all is still under control. The rest are just petty criminal like handbags snatcher which of course does not deserve their attention as it is not as rewarding enough.

1807 deaths while under detention as suspect. One was merely a witness under MACC. This statistic is over a six years period. That is equivalent to 3 deaths for every 4 days. Amazing statistic.. This is what our police force is all about. What happen to the law that exists in our country?

Yes, all the above are courtesy from the Barisan Nasional led government over the decades. This country and her people are under threat from the BN government and it's rotten system.

We cant trust this government anymore. We have no more faith in the judicial and we cannot rely on the police force to protect us.

Our country is in total shambles. Our country is being raped continuously by those who walk the corridor of power with PDRM and the judiciary as their enforcer.

Our soldiers need to stand up and protect our country from these threats coming from within.

Bagan Pinang would be the best place to make a heady start.

So soldiers, insists on making your own stand to exercise your own rights. Make your vote counts.

Vote against Evil, Vote against Barisan Nasional

PKFZ Declassified: Cruel Reality, Lies, Deceit And Betrayal....

Malaysia's past and present leadership under the ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional, was put to test when RPK brilliantly declassified PKFZ papers through a series of articles posted on his popular MalaysiaToday news portal.
The exposure of some documents classified under the Official Secret Act in relation to the PKFZ scandal has somehow confirmed the suspicion of the people over the involvement of the government behind the PKFZ malpractices that caused a big dent of RM 12.4 B to the public funds.
This exposure has also raised some questions regarding the need of such an Act, The Official Secret Act. Is PKFZ the only scandal? Or PKFZ is just the tip of an iceberg? Why is there a need to invoke OSA on the normal operation of the administration involving public funds?
Of course, unless there is an element of foul play involved that needs to be cover up or such an act is needed for them to fuck us up big time. Or both.
We do not know how many more cover ups that are hidden behind the OSA. PKFZ scandal seems to be the mother of all scandal for now. But lets not forget about those toll concessionaires lopsided contracts which are more far reaching as the people are burdened by it over a longer period.
Again, we have been fleeced by those who walks the corridors of power. Yet, they still remained in power. We, Malaysians, must be a bunch of forgetful or forgiving assholes. Make noise when the scandal appears. Forget when it become stale. We tend to tackle issue on an adhoc basis. Even if it is on adhoc basis, there have been many issues over the years to warrant for Change.
I don't know what is really wrong with our society and their mindset. It can be very discouraging at times especially to those fighters out there. Fighters like RPK or Haris Ibrahim and others who dedicate and sacrifice their time and comfort trying to save this country from the clutches of evil.
RPK have to go into exile. And it is not an easy thing to do. Many others have been harassed and intimidated.
These people are the Real Patriots.
I shall end my post here before I get overly emotional and start busting your ego by making some of you feel stupid.

Parents Should Enrol Their Children Into This Youth Skill Development Program..


Members Of Edison Youth Achievement Award

We Want Make 'Satu Malaysia' Come True
I bumped into Daryl at the 'Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia' launching on Wednesday. It was heartwarming to see this young boy attending our launch to stand in solidarity with us for a meaningful cause. I did a man-to-boy pep talk on him. He later handed me a call card and introduced some of his youthful looking team members to me.
And today with some free time on hand, I decided to check out what these youths are up to. I was baffled when I logged onto their blog. I am really impressed with the youth development program that they are offering.
For parent with growing up kids, I would recommend you to enrol your children into the program EYAA has to offer.

Live! Live! Live From Rumah Anak Bangsa Malaysia...

2:20pm The Next Day..
Sorry Folks! I apologise for the sub-standard live reporting last night. No excuse to be offer here. Just going to download some pics taken for the record. One euphorical historic moment to commemorate the 2009 Malaysia Day. The day of The Birth of Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia Spirit on record.
Photos is made available Here...
That's all for now. We ll be on our way to Port Dickson to witness the launching of PR election machinery.

7:19pm Launch officially ends, Making way for our muslim brothers and sisters for their prayers before buka puasa. People mingling around freely without reservation.

7:10pm Q&A session in progress.

7:03pm Anak Bangsa Malaysia website officially launched.

6:44pm Cant stop my tears from flowing down listening to the speech. A long journey and now, it's reality. Another long battle ahead of us. More crowd coming in. Many standing in the rain with umbrellas.

6:40pm A very touching speech is in progress. Check Anak Bangsa Malaysia website for context at a later date.

6:30pm Negara Ku was sang to start off the event. It was done in full spirit. Can see many tears among the Anak Anak Bangsa Malaysia. I shed my tears... Overwhelmed by this cause. Haris is giving his speech now. More tears shed among the crowd now.

6;27pm Starting in 3 mins time under a slight drizzle. Good mix of crowd here numbering slightly above 120.

Launching Anak Bangsa Malaysia Initiative: Reporting Live From Ground Zero Coming Your Way...

Happy Malaysia Day, Malaysians!
Today, another history is going to be created in conjunction with Malaysia Day..
Today will mark the rebirth of Anak Bangsa Malaysia Spirit which many of us have gone through before it was taken away by the spoils of political agendas.
Many of our younger brothers and sisters were unfortunate to have born into a racial segregated Malaysia.
Today, all that will soon be history...
Anak Bangsa Malaysia was initiated by One Man. Soon his vision was readily accepted by bloggers and politicians alike. Anak Bangsa Malaysia initiative picked up steam before the 12th GE and soon after, this oneness spirit started wavering through deceit and betrayal for reason already known to us by now.

But, Haris Ibrahim held on strongly to his belief.

And it was RPK's sedtion trial and the candlelight vigil held therafter that brought back hope to this Anak Bangsa Malaysia initiative. It was that Oneness spirit in these people around Malaysia that paved the way for Anak Bangsa Malaysia to be what it is today.

Since then, there is no turning back.

My salute goes to all those selfless people who made this possible. You all know who you are. Be it Haris, fellow bloggers or member of the civil society.

Thank you. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Anak Bangsa Malaysia is not a substance but a Spirit...

Some of us will be tweeting and blogging live from ground zero later in the day. So stay tune...

Meme: Save Yvonne's Sight...

Malaysian Heart and Uncle Zorro tagged me with Save Yvonne's Sight meme at about the same time.
I find out that there are too many procedures to follow so I may stray abit from this and do what I think would be more of an effective way to reach out to the people.
My sincere apology but I meant well here.

This is Yvonne's plight..

Yvonne Foong, the author of "I'm Not Sick, Just A Bit Unwell - Life with Neurofibromatosis", 22 years old, has this disease, which has severely affected her sight and hearing due to tumours in the brain and spine.

She is scheduled for an operation between 1 and 4 December 2009. The cost of surgery is USD44,000 or RM154,770, and the cost of staying in hospital for two weeks is USD915 or RM3219.

She has raised about RM52,454.28 of this and is hoping to raise the rest by republishing her book "I'm Not Sick; I'm Just a Bit Unwell" in English and Chinese. The books are now available in Malaysian bookshops and from her web site store.

To know more about NeuroFibromatosis, Click Here..

How you can help? Please visit Here..

I personally feel that it is appropriate to tag Pete of Malaysia-Today and The People's Parliament for a better and effective outreach since time is limited now.

Meanwhile, I am going to play my little role and further send emails out to people whom I believe can help make this a success.

For those who wants to help pass on this meme, go to Fi-sha for the rules and procedure. She has done a good job there.

The Election Commission (EC) today fixed Oct 3 (Saturday) for nomination and Oct 11 (Sunday) for polling for the Bagan Pinang state seat by-election in Negeri Sembilan.
There will be a eight-day campaigning period.
The dates were announced by EC chairperson Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof at a press conference today.
Abdul Aziz said there are 13,664 voters in Bagan Pinang, of which 9,060 are normal voters while the remainder 4,604 are postal voters. The large number of postal voters are due to the presence of several army camps in the constituency. (Reported by MalaysiaKini)
Meanwhile, we have two opportunist ministers starting to make their stand on Umno's chance of retaining this seat.
Opportunist #1
Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim is upbeat about the Barisan Nasional’s (BN) chances in the Bagan Pinang state by-election.
Saying that the coalition would be able to retain the seat, he said the BN had been implementing development programmes in the area and that its leaders had done a lot of good deeds to the people there.
“We should be able to counter any criticism and bring the people’s attention to see things in a positive manner,” he told reporters after attending the breaking of fast at the Sungai Pertang Mosque here last night.
Rais, who is an Umno supreme council member, said that the development brought by BN and Umno in the area resulted in the coalition winning the seat in the last general election.
He added that the voters in the area remained BN supporters, even more so now with the BN government’s new image under the 1Malaysia concept mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. Read more Here..

Opportunist #2

Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein talked up Barisan Nasional’s chances of retaining the Bagan Pinang state seat in Negeri Sembilan by pointed out today that it was an Umno stronghold that the party would defend vigorously.
The Umno vice-president’s remarks reflected the ruling party’s underlying optimism despite the undercurrent of concern over the push for former mentri besar Tan Sri Isa Samad to be the BN candidate.
Isa appears to be BN’s likely candidate and if chosen, could provide a challenge to current MB Datuk Mohamad Hassan’s position as he has the support of a majority of Umno divisions in the state.
Hishammuddin said today that BN’s biggest concern was to ensure that everything was in place and ready for the upcoming by-election.
“In the past by-elections we may have not done so well, but the previous seats were all Pakatan Rakyat strongholds, therefore it was easy for them to retain their seats. Permatang Pauh and Permatang Pasir was Pakatan-controlled from the start,” said Hishamuddin.
Who wouldn't be upbeat when the postal votes constitutes one third of the total eligible votes. Imagine 4,604 postal votes out of a total of 13,664 votes. A 80% total turnout with an assumption that the postal votes turnout of 100% is in their favor, Pakatan Rakyat would need more than 86% of the balance votes to win this seat. Even with a total voters turnout of 100%, Pakatan Rakyat still need 75% of the balance votes to win by the slimiest majority. With the presence of this chunky postal votes, the odds is against Pakatan Rakyat. Of course, unless this postal votes voting process is closely monitored.
Another question is that why is there such a huge number of postal votes for this constituent? From what I have gathered, these army camps are just recruitment camps. And why should their spouse's vote be classified as postal vote?
Despite the tough unravelled ground with the existence of postal votes and instant noodle, I believe there is still a chance for Pakatan Rakyat to pull through this one if every rightful minded citizen wakes up to fact that Umno's politics has gone from worse to worst for the past 18 months.
That would be the task of Barisan Rakyat Bloggers... to wake and to unite the people.. for the people and for the country.. to stop those in power from taking our country down beyond a trail of no return.
We are not far from there now. Think of your future.. think of your children's future..
Vote Against Evil; Vote Against Umno..

RPK Takes On BigDogDotCom's Dare...

So, Ungku, I dare you again:

1. Name the Special Branch officer who is supposed to be my neighbour and passed me a copy of your SD alleging Datin Seri Rosmah and two army officers in the association of the murder of Mongolian national Altantuyaa Shaariibuu

2. Please provide proof that I called you on 5 September 2008 and your allegations that I warned you that you would be picked up by the Special Branch, under the Internal Security Act.

Now Malaysians Need To Worry...

Forget about the recent recovery in stock market. With a change in parameters to the Composite Index from 100 stocks representation to a merely 30 stocks representation, our composite index managed to recover from a low of 800 to hover above 1200 as of today.
The hype about dabbling for some quick gain has fizzled off since the 30 components stock index took effect in July. Volume has dwindled off despite the manipulated upwards movement of the index. That means the play have been confined to 30 stocks with some rare selective manipulating activities popping up here and there. Many of the early hot favourites have since retreated and gone into consolidation.
This cycle is about to end soon. In other words, it is time to lock in and fold now. The risk-reward ratio is not in our favor. Gold price has shot up in recent days. Sign of another crisis to come?
On the local front, this uptrend cycle is seen as a play up to create a false perception as a diversion to the reality of what our country is facing now given our government inaction or inability to provide a framework to ward off further recessionary threat. Let alone taking us out. Perhaps, they were busy playing witch hunting in the political arena. Or they don't have any idea how to. Maybe we just don't have to money. The recent fuel hike masterstroke acts as a proof to that especially at the same time, the Singapore government reduced their pump price by 6 cents a litre.
The reality above all that is the people are feeling the pinch from a stagnant economy coupled with inflationary pressure.
Maybe these two articles below can give us a clear picture as to what is happening to our country. Backwards, we go....

Malaysia’s global competitiveness ranking dropped three positions to 24, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report for 2009-2010 released today.

The drop essentially was the result of a much poorer assessment of its institutional framework, said the report, which was released ahead of WEF’s annual meeting of the New Champions 2009 in Dalian, China.

The report said every indicator in the area had been exhibiting a downward trend since 2007, causing Malaysia to tumble from 17th to 43rd position in this dimension in just two years.

Switzerland topped the overall ranking of 133 economies, with the US fell one place to second position, and Asia continued to feature prominently with Singapore at third and Japan at eighth, and Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan all in the top 20.

The report also said security was of particular concern in Malaysia with its ranking dropped 25 levels to 85th.

Malaysia national gold reserve has dropped from 72.7 tons in July 1999 to a mere 12 tons as of July 2009.

Tell Tale Sign Of An Imploding Umno Terengganu...

Terengganu MB Ahmad Said rejected an offer to make him a full minister at federal level in exchange for him to step down from his present position in order to resolve the state Umno internal rift as reported by MalaysianInsider today. Read More Here..
Well, it appeared that Ahmad Said is not that stupid to fall into their trap. Choosing between having the state oil royalty under his control and their offer of a more reputable position, any dumb fool would have chosen the former. A few hundred million at his disposal each year is reality. The promise of a full ministership at federal level doesn't guarantee him anything. Since all ministerial position has been taken, I guess the government would have to create a 'cold storage' ministry to accomodate him.
But that is not all..
Another report implicated that MB Ahmad Said spent a total of RM8.3 million on dates and zamzam water (what the hell is that) for distribution to the Terengganu folks. The purchase contract was apparently awarded to a crony company. Read More Here..
Now it gets more interesting.. Some negotiation follow by some pressuring. Sounds very Umno, isn't it? Whoever leaks out such information has to come from within.
And it's not going to end here. Do expect some explosive dirty witch hunting to continue here.
Ahmad Said was the Agong's choice over Idris Jusoh. Is Umno 'derhaka' enough to go against the King's choice? Can Umno afford another fuck-up this time after so many fuck-ups with the Bagan Pinang by-election coming up soon?
We Shall See...

Salam And Salute, Encik Mohd Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi

The ugly cow head episode has indeed turned uglier than it should with many thanks to our ruling politicians. This is also beyond my sane mind that they are willing to go to the extent of creating disharmony among the people just to stay in power.
It sent chills to my spine to see how this ugly scene started with a cow head march and further fueled by a moronic protest during a dialogue session with the affected residents. All these ugly scenes created merely because of a relocation of a 150 year old temple? What happen to mutual respect?
With mutual respect, there is no need for tolerance. And why should we tolerate one another in the first place? Or in our case it's a one way tolerance. Unless we have someone somewhere stirring shit for some selfish reason.
Above all those recent ugly scenes, it is heartening to read many positive commentaries in response to the cowhead episode from all walks. It shows that many of us have grown matured in mind and have progressed beyond the threshold of lies and a racial divide. A sign most welcome in hours of dire straits. A sign that brings hope to the people that if we stay united, peace shall prevails against all evil.
I would reproduce a letter to MalaysiaKini, written by Encik Mohd Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi. It is a welcome read after been bombarded with some atrocities over the past week.
To My Misguided Brethren
I would like to comment on the town hall meeting between the chief minister of Selangor and the so-called residents of section 23, Shah Alam. Although I was not present at that meeting, from the various reports, it seems to me that some self-interested Malays in this country are not interested in the 1Malaysia concept as well as ignorant of the teachings of Islam.
I'm writing as a Malay and as a Muslim to appeal for calm and tolerance to my brethren citizens of the non-Muslim faith and to explain to them the real teachings of Islam.
Where should we go from here? Are these residents' reactions actually from the residents or are they instigated? In my readings of the May 13 incident from various independent sources, there was a strong suggestion that our country's leadership 'allowed' or even strategised the march by the two races in the 'hope' that this would lead to an emergency situation or would oust the then embattled Tunku.
This is of course just an academic suggestion but my God what if it was true? Politicians instigating racial riots? How can we allow such things and how can we raise our children safely with these kinds of mindsets and modus operandi? The rakyat must stand together and not allow this to happen.
Vote any extremist party against racial tolerance out of office. The rakyat must educate themselves about each other's religious practices and forge a common understanding that love of all mankind is the root of all religions.
The way to Allah or Heaven is in the ukhwah or brotherhood of mankind and not only from one small religious group. We can no longer hope that our education system will teach these sacred principles but only ourselves. Neither Najib nor Anwar seems to be on the verge of setting up any institution to forge racial tolerance and mutual understanding.
I have seen and heard many Islamic religious scholars of the ethnic group called 'Malay' spout the ideas that non-Muslims are destined to hell and that means all of them without exception. After much reading, it taught me that Allah would allow you to enter heaven only by his grace.
All your deeds in this world, however righteous that may seem to you, would never be enough to outweigh God's grace. So who is to say whom God will choose to heaven?
In the holy month of Ramadan, Islam teaches that fasting is necessary to curb and control the self by denying not only food or sexual desires but most importantly to deny anger, bigotry, hatred, jealousy and many other negative traits.
The Shah Alam meeting was in the month of Ramadan and such sneering, name calling and rowdiness speak of total ignorance by these Malays who probably put race and political affiliation over and above the teachings of Islam.
When the Prophet was tortured by the Taif people and Gabriel came with a host from heaven ready to destroy the township at the bidding of the Prophet, he cried ; "No! I was brought as a mercy to mankind! It could be my weakness that the Taif people do not understand Islam! Let them be for if they would not come to the fold perhaps their offspring would. Let them be!" Such tolerance and humility! Where was that in Shah Alam?
The so claimed Malay 'Residents of Section 23' were acting in contradiction to the teachings of our forefathers in Malaysia and their behaviour was bereft of any values of Islam. They were rude. They were threatening. They were not ready to listen.
They were not willing to compromise or to discuss. They did not give due respect to a leader who came to explain and discuss. They wanted what they wanted and all else be damned. Where do we go from here, I wonder?
