THE SIN ?
I am sorry I am
not a liberal man in dealing with the question on
religion. It happens that I believe in God, the only one
God, God of all mankind. As the followers of Islam I
also respect other religion. Having friends from all
faith and believers I never coax or persuade anyone to
embrace Islam and never said to them Islam is the best
and the true faith. For more than 40 years having
non-Muslim friends we never encroached our friends'
especially the UMNO group have never compute and
anticipate the future. Assessing their debates during
the UMNO assemblies, and being with them during my
working days, I found that they have no insight to the
future of the Malays.
Does UMNO ever
anticipate anything, predict anything and observe
happenings around them ? If UMNO's top brass do not
think religion is important what do you expect the
future of Islam in this country ? Try to recall what
Samy Veloo commented on Al-Quaran and what Mahathir said
about the Holly Prophet. Try to recall what Dr Mashitoh
said about Hudud and Jarjis commented on Islam.
And Najib went
out all out to get international approval including the
approval of the Pope of Rome. Who bears the sin of Najib
and the issue of Allah other than those who vote for
UMNO ? Even the phrase 'Malay Unity' sound like a
non-Islamic connotation. Islamic Unity and Co-Operation
is more meaningful and sensible. A Malay can be
anything; a good Muslim, a bad Muslim, a Christian, an
illuminati, drug pusher, a robber or a liar.
In my last
article 'The Future Is Now' I mentioned of the Malay
ignorance on the current status of school children and
simply nobody cares to relate it to the future time of
this nation. Rais Yatim, the First Class Law Degree
holder, an UMNO strong man, insisted that morality and
ethics belong to home, the responsibility of the
parents. One Deputy Education Minister sided a student
who kicked his teacher rather than siding the teacher.
When I was a
school Principal I was told not to put up any question
to an official from the Ministry of education. My
questions were known to be biting though not offensive.
Of course I even challenged them to bet as a result of
era worst thing could have happened in school. In short
he didn't want Muslim students to near themselves to
religion. He believed Islam bred terrorists. He almost
close religious schools had not because of some of the

UMNO should have

therefore could have anticipated what they will be doing
in this region; their plans and modus operandi. They

conflicts in the early period. The Jews do. and
prepared well to deal with the Christians.

interest they would have prepared a thousand of Ahmed

Ustaz dare to debate about God in English with the
Catholic counterparts ? But we all know the number who
could speak Malay well to persuade the Malays to vote
for UMNO and said it is sinful to go against the
government. And the Home Minister is aggressively
weakening Muslim's unity.

PRIESTS HIT HARD BY HIDDEN AIDS
January 31, 2000
(AP) -Roman Catholic priests in the United States
are dying from AIDS-related
illnesses at a rate four times higher than the general
population and the
cause is often concealed on their death certificates,
The Kansas City Star reported in a series of stories
that started Sunday.
CATHOLIC PRIESTS ARE DYING OF AIDS,
OFTEN IN SILENCE
By JUDY L. THOMAS -
The Kansas City Star
Date: 01/29/00 22:15
Rich Sugg/The Star
Hundreds of Roman
Catholic priests across the United States have died of
AIDS-related illnesses, and hundreds more are living
with HIV, the virus
that causes the disease. The actual number of AIDS
deaths is difficult to determine. But it appears priests
are dying of AIDS at a rate at least
that of the general U.S. population, according to
estimates from medical experts and priests and an
analysis of health statistics by The Kansas City Star.
The deaths are of such concern to the church that most
dioceses and religious orders now
require applicants for the priesthood
to take an HIV-antibody test before their ordination.
theory is that priests molest young boys because of the
abstinence in their lives. But, my question is, why not
little girls? At least they're female. Or are those
priests all gay as well as sexually deprived?
NEED TO BE APPRECIATED AND RESPECTED BY EVERYONE
To have a leader
being respected by all is almost impossible. There are a
few who hate even God.
But there is
always a difference, a good man being hated and a bad
man being hated. A good man does not create sin and
caused no pain to the people. A bad man is full of sins
and cares for himself, serving himself the excessive luxury of life.
He wants to be a God. Or he wants to be the mother of a

The article below
describes the popularity of Najib. It could only be the
opinion of the writer. You judge it by yourselves.
A Prime Minister need to be supported
or respected by a big majority of people. 80% is just
fine. Above 89% would be better. 100% is impossible.

IS IT TRUE -
Do the Malays care about illuminati ?
It is easy to ask but it is not easy to answer. Try to
ask a more broader question; "Do the Malays care about
anything at all ?"
One may want to
know which Malay because there are several kinds and
categories of Malays; the evil and the bad, cheaters,
liars, drug peddlers, and honest and sincere. We can't
even tell how many percents fall under each category.
We could guess that a big majority cares more about the
Brim and money and money. Some will bow and pray
to anything that promise them even a few hundred ringgit.
Even if Abu Hassan is a Christian Prime Minister they
will praise him if Abu Hassan shows his generosity.
At this juncture we cannot jump to conclusion the
concept and ideal of illuminati. Is it connected to
Jewish religion ? Is it a form of Paganism ? Is it
Christians or an anti-Christ ?
members might convince that UMNO is illuminati. UMNO
says Keadilan is illuminati. before the era of computer
and TVs I have heard about some big time UMNO members
participating in some sort of rituals. But I didn't know
about illuminati then.
But one thing I
do know, that the illumati always think they are strong
and powerful. Some members are very disciplined and
others are bad apples.

Sexual Abuse Files
of 42 Catholic Priests Will Be Released
Tomorrow; ‘Prepare To Be Shocked,’
Tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.
(Central Time), a new chapter opens in
the long, sordid tale of Catholic clergy
raping children. That’s the hour when

itself in bankruptcy proceedings since
early 2011, will make thousands of pages
of incriminating records available,
including personnel files and secret
depositions by the highest Catholic
Church authorities in Wisconsin. Both
archdiocese’s site and a
website run by victims’ lawyers will
publish the documents.
There is speculation that the
disclosure may be a body blow to New York’s
Timothy Dolan (pictured below),
the most powerful Cardinal in the United States.
Though Dolan denies he did anything wrong,
critics say that when he learned the Chapter 11

millions of dollars funneled into special
trusts, out of reach of abuse victims and their

reports Milwaukee’s Journal-Sentinel
“Needless to say, there are some terrible
things described in many of the documents,” Archbishop
Jerome Listecki said in his weekly letter to
local Catholics in advance of the
release. To those deciding to read the
files, Listecki advised, “prepare to
The records will contain parts of 42
priests’ personnel files as well as
depositions of former Archbishop Timothy

to include… correspondence between the
archdiocese and the Vatican, which has the
final word on defrocking priests; evidence
that the archdiocese under Dolan paid some
priests to accept that decision without
protest; and graphic accounts of
sexual assault of young people.
Listecki’s letter is an odd
mix of straight talk and disingenuous blather.
“Prepare to be shocked” is an example of the
former. As for the latter, he repeats the
strategic canard that the disclosure may do
further damage to the victims’ psyches. The
concern for the beaten and the buggered comes a
little late and would draw a chorus of howls in
a sexual-violence case concerning “civilian”
suspects. Can you imagine a serial rapist à la
Ariel Castro stalling the investigation and
the legal proceedings as much as possible by
arguing that it would hurt his victims if
further details of their ordeal surfaced?
The archdiocese has recently
begun spinning its opening of the records “as
part of our commitment to open and candid
communication,” which sounds lovely until you
realize that the same Catholic authority long
fought the release tooth and nail, again out of
ostensible concern for the victims — more
specifically, for victims’ anonymity.

by a pedophile priest when he was a teenager; in
a rather wonderful twist of fate, he now serves
as chairman of the bankruptcy creditors
The 42 priest files to be
released by the diocese will pertain to those
whom the Church pretty much knows are
lawbreakers — clergy who were the focus of
“substantiated allegations” of sexual abuse.
They include some of the archdiocese’s
worst sex offenders. Among them: the
late Father Lawrence Murphy, who is believed
to have molested as many as 200 deaf boys,
most during his decades at St. John School
for the Deaf in St. Francis; and
Sigfried Widera, who was facing 42 counts of
child abuse in Wisconsin and
California when he jumped to his death from
a Mexico hotel room in 2003 as authorities
And tomorrow’s cache of
documents will most likely show that, once
again, higher-ups in the church moved pedophile
priests from one parish or school to the next —
without disclosing their crimes.
Milwaukee’s archdiocese was
the eighth one domestically to file for Chapter
11 protection. It may or may not survive
financial bankruptcy, but in 24 hours we should
find that its moral bankruptcy is no
longer in question.

Catholic sex abuse cases
From Wikipedia, the
The Catholic sex abuse
cases are a series of allegations,
investigations, trials and convictions of
child sexual abuse crimes committed by
Catholic priests, nuns and members of
orders against children as young as three
years old with the majority between the ages of
11 and 14.
These cases include
oral penetration and have resulted in
criminal prosecutions of the abusers and civil
lawsuits against the church's dioceses and
parishes. Many of the cases span several decades
and are brought forward years after the abuse
occurred. Cases have also been brought against
members of the
Catholic hierarchy who did not report sex
abuse allegations to the legal authorities. It
has been shown they deliberately moved sexually
abusive priests to other parishes where the
abuse sometimes continued.
This has led to a number of fraud cases where
the Church has been accused of misleading
victims by deliberately relocating priests
accused of abuse instead of removing them from
As recently as 2011 Fr Curtis Wehmeyer was
allowed to work as a priest despite many people
having reported concern about his sexual
compulsion and suspicious behavior with boys.
Wehmeyer was employed as a priest without proper
background checks. Wehmeyer was later convicted
of sexually abusing two boys. After Wehmeyer's
arrest there are complaints the responsible

Two men in
particular as I observed behave as if they are the
smartest Malaysians. It is not that they are UMNO that
made me despise them but their words are intolerable. I
dislike opposition members as much as UMNO guys.
UMNO as a

asking why the profitable companies like TNB and PLUS
are allowed to increase prices because they can cause
further inflation. Why the government allows insurance

accountable for the missing billions in PKZ, PERWAJA and

countries is similar to saying inflation is OK here
because others are experiencing high price as well. And
for graduate politicians to make sweeping statements of
other countries do not parade any intellectuality. No
wonder Malaysia lose Pulau Batu Puteh to Singapore.
For a long
time UMNO were used to have Ministers without even
college education. Good or bad the country didn't
experience economic suffocation or threat of overthrowing
the government. When UMNO began to require graduates the
party had hope for the better leadership who can speak

Someone said the newly opened Alor

If I miss heard 5 million with 5
billions I may believe it with a big wow. It is better
to go to post office to settle my bills. I don't have to
climb ladders and hunt for the respective paying booths.
In fact the government did not have
to spend that huge sum because there are several
unutilized government buildings that can be turned into
the booth. There is a former Day Training Center and
Sekolah Rendah Sultan Abdul Halim.
If it is true that the cost is 5
billions then we do know where the money went to and why
we are asked to pay more for everything. Even the UMNO
goons are paying. That would serve them right.

Would it not be a time those officers will choose to
clear the nation from all evil ? Right now they wait
until they retire to show their dislike towards evil
doings, may they be in America or Malaysia.
UMNO veterans except Mahathir is
still supporting the wrongdoings because he has wrested
much from our treasury for his projects. Even the former
press secretary of the late Tun Abdul Razak showed his
dispair on Najib's administration.
The episode is sad.
Mahathir had wanted mental revolution of the
Malays, to be aggressive rather than docile. Indeed they
had. The movement of the yellow shirts and the recent
Turun black T-Shirts were not solely the non-Malays.
Such show of defiance happened once during the protest
against Malayan Union, and now resurfaced against the
bad practices of the government.
It was not the
opposition party members who called Mahathir Firaun.
Even the UMNO members are using the word gangsters to
call government Minister.
The mind can change
and develop the hatred anger of vengeance like what the
Jews had towards the Nazis, hunting for the murderers
even long after WW2.
Public are not
crazy. They just want to see a clean, responsible and
accountable government. Who can stand the swagger like
Shahrizat who had been maneuvering behind their
professions and qualification to do what they like with
the public funds ? They will bark back with the counter
offensive words thrown at them. There will be people who
see Shahrizat, Mahathir, Ghani Patail and other Mamak
faced politicians as foreigners who are manipulating and
deceiving the Malays. What different does it make
between the British and the Mamak ?
Instead of showing
remorse they further stepped up the spending spree
lavishly hiding the evil deeds from the public.

What is a vote book ? A vote
book is a cash book where receipts and payments are
recorded for accounting purposes.
Government departments keep the book,
not only for recording purposes but to guide the
department on spending. The book shows the real balance
of money in our account.
Let me give you a brief sample. If
you have RM1000 in your account, it will be stated at
the top of the page. Then you decide to make an order
from a shop of goods costing RM100. You record the order
and already minus from the original amount even though
the goods have not arrived. I called it a commitment.
When the goods arrive and recorded in the stock book,
the payment record is made. By the column usage the
balance would remain RM900.
Managers are to see the balance
before deciding for a purchase. He should not buy if the
amount is less than the price. If the goods are so
essential he has to seek permission for virement or
applied for aditional grant.
Any person who spend money without
referring to the cash balance is not fit at all to be

Who are they ? These are people called 'lebih bubur dari

Observe well and you will know who they are.
What do they do with the money they squeeze from you ?
They gave back to some of you, asking for your vote in exchange for
the gift. They buy popularity, engage consultants,
giving to cronies and friends, and God knows what else
they spent on. They are despicable.
The broken promises are being replaced with brainwashing
your minds. National media is trying hard to convince
you that government actions are good for everyone,
deceiving you left and right.

A YEAR OF DECEPTION
Tanya Ustaz Qazim Al-Hafidz

dengan kerajaan dan naik gaji berganda-ganda sehingga
lupa pada masyarakat mathaen ? Minyak naik 20 sen,

DURING PRICE HIKE PROTEST ?
TO AVOID PROBLEMS

about the bombing during the price protest. Usually
those who plan the bombing will accuse others so their
actions will be blamed on others. The term is called

procession. They will continue the bombing spree at any
time at any target as what the IRA did. And no one got

Even weapons carried by criminals were suspected from
the missing ones as reported by the AG. You can imagine
if people are in possession of bombs, what they will do
If there is
some explosion during the protest it will have to be the
False Flag. And we know bombs could be implanted to
arrest a person. The dirty job is well known throughout
laymen who own bombs are terrorists. Organized
terrorists have plans and targets. They would move
quietly and unsuspectingly. No sensible person will side
or support them.
people do not forget a series of election promises, and
jargons used by BN and Najib, about prices, taxes and
housing. Those promises are quickly broken and media are
used to justify the false promises, and religious
figures are paid to influence the people.
political maneuver is dragging the country down into
savageness and incivility. It disgraced Islam and the
people are sufferings the politicians are increasing
their salaries, BN and BA alike, Najib and Rosmah will
continue with the lavish spending. Either they are not
out of their cocoon or simply indifferent towards public
mental agony. And including those who will suffer are
the police and the army and many other government
servants. They will suffer more when they retire. Their
kids may even involve in drugs. A retired policeman had
told me some years ago, "Look, Man. Now I am selling
nasi lemak to finance my kid in college education. I am
poor and sick. This is what I get after my long service
to the government."
We can die
for our country but should we die for a lavish and
despotic leader ? We are ever willing to fight and die
for the beloved nation, but should we die for rogue
politicians from whatever party ?
opposition to the rise in the cost of living is the
opposition by the people and for the people. It does not
come from terrorists or any bomber. Bad government will
be brought down but not by protestors.

And the most
important in decision making is MONEY. If they go
against the maxim that Money Is Decision Making
then they will be inviting for trouble and start to
create problems. No government can print money as much
as she wants to create wealth. Every spending made must
first look into the coffers.
The specialty of
Mahathir was privatization. The specialty of Najib is
spending without looking at the source. Some people
called Najib generous others called him lavish. But even
without any Prime Ministers some departments incurs huge
wastage through corruption and setting expensive prices.
A hundred ringgit door was purchased at four hundred
ringgit. Ministers must see that no such wastage should
take place. And Najib should not simply spend to win
popularity. No Prime Minister of Malaysia ever paid huge
that purpose. If people decide to vote for BN, they will
even without any gift or promise.
If they make decisions
without first referring to the coffers, giving away
millions on the spot, soon enough they will dry up the
treasury. People mentioned FLOM and BRM.

Both, the head of

to rope people's heads. If Lim was found not guilty in
causing the great lost of PKZ then the officers did. Lim
was certainly was very negligent. The government allows
wastage owing to it's inefficiencies.
Money lost under

himself. The normal government servant would be slapped

situations is hard to describe within a short space. At
the bottom there were bad and inefficient civil
servants, and the top there were Ministers who were keen
on something else rather than in their jobs, and those
who think they are gods or God.
To avoid the
problems either the whole setup be thrown out or the
people managing them should be changed. Would the right

BAD HABITS ARE NOT RELIGIOUS
An essay by
Muhammad Arshad, Religious without religion, seems to
imply that corruption in Muslim countries like Indonesia
and Malaysia is high as compared to the non-Muslim
countries. He based his remarks on the report made by
In fact it is
difficult to make generalization on religion-corruption
relationship, for this evil happens everywhere. It is
rampant in the United States, China and the rest of
world as in Malaysia and Indonesia. Jeb Bush won several
contracts under Bush administration. And there were
hanky panky during American Presidential Election. And
in Communist China and North Korea top brass leaders
were persecuted for the same offence.
pointed out the cleanliness in Japan and European
countries as compared to the Muslim countries. Again
this is not a factor of religion. I saw dirty spots in
China and America as much as clean environment in these
play very important role in determining cleanliness,
education, technological progress and other cultural
matters. A society can shape the attitudes of the
community dwellers. The Malaysian Malays are trained to
obey and not to think by themselves. Schools are
teaching rather than educating. Leaders show bad
can be in anyone, any race and creed. You won't be safe
in Malaysia, America, United Kingdom, China and even
Japan. Najib spent millions to get elected. Obama spent
$684 millions to get elected. While Obama would not be
seen by the Transparency International, others will.
Korean leader went to jail for the same practice.
good attitudes and habits stringent laws could be
deployed. From the words of law and enforcement, it
creates fear. From fear it creates habits. From habits
it bores positive attitudes. After several years people
behave as guided by habits and attitudes, no more by the
fear of repression.
We read about
a taxi driver in United States who found USD$300,000 in
his car and returned the money to the owner recently.
Ask the Malaysians whether they would do the same. I
believe some will do. Many would enjoy with the money.
Ask ourselves what guides the behaviors of those people.
discipline is what required to keep the city clean, and
the people reject gifts and corruptions. A country of
bad leaders will not produce responsible and trustworthy

A big majority
of Malayan Malays have not known how to topple the
government. PAS says 'PAS is not a new party. We have
been competing in a very clean way. We fell yet we
continue to fight. We never use any dubious mean to
topple the government.' The worst of a treason by the
Malays was going against the King and the Resident.
Jebat threatened to kill the King. Sultan Mahmud was
killed over his cruelty. And Birch was murdered.
when I talked of Rosmah and Najib, the angry Malays only
say, "We have God. We appeal to God in our prayer." But
no common men could stand the increasing cost of living
and Najib's support of profitable agencies like the TNB
and PLUS. They have to let the world hear their grouses
and chose to protest. That's the full stop.
listening to many people who had wished for Mahathir's
sudden death during his demonic administration. And how
many are wishing for some UMNO and PERKASA leaders to be
strike by lightning. Though getting rid of bad leaders
are easier than toppling the government, no one
embraces the idea of violence and militancy. The Chinese
deployed the psychological approach to deal with stern
and tough Mahathir on many matters and won many
policies that favored them.
It would be
folly for anyone to think of toppling a government, how
despotic the rulers are. The government is aware of it
as well, but more concerned on the attack on individuals
rather than the government. That's the reason why Rosmah
was not put on the commercial jetliner for fear of any
attack on her. We say it is an absurd imagination. The
government simply didn't want to take chances,
recognizing it is easier to kill individuals rather than
toppling the whole administration..
For the same reason the old US
administration prefer Castro's death rather than a
direct conquest of Cuba.
The Malays won't do both no matter
how mad they were. They prefer to seek for God's help,
calling God to show the right path to amend the bad
leaders. Now we began to hear Mahathir criticizing the
lavish expenditure and the climbing cost of living.

Najib loves you and

Real observation had been made to
see whether there was any positive correlation between
PMR and SPM result. I kept records of PMR results in my
database, of students entering my school when I was
working. And I kept on telling the students that nobody
was stupid and the PMR result would not fail anyone in
MCE with a little mental transformation. "Success," I
told the teahers, "is when we can turn the potential
failures to passes. That's the real achievement."
I provoked and challenged the weak
students, and warned those high PMR achievers of the
danger of over confident.
From 1990 onwards the first
graders were more than the failures, second and third
grader combined. There were some interesting findings
over several years of observations.
a handful who were good in PMR
were also excellent in SPM. A few good ones dropped to
second grade. More than 10%, categorized as useless for
poor performance in PMR, obtained grade one with good
agregate. And the mediocre improved a great deal, either
they were first grader of obtained second grades.
Parents should not feel sad if
their kids did not perform well. All the kids need to do
is to re-oriented their minds, putting in strong
determination to learn. And of course the teachers need
to apply a very effective methods to turn the stones

On the other hand bright students

My interest in computer went way back
when I was young. There weren't any PC yet. Already my
imagination ran wild, trying to figure out how to invent
one. Of course that was a pure nonsense but that was one
of a dreams many young people could have today. My radio
license was before the incoming of PCs. In the early
70's I was one of the active stations. If there were no

before I went to school again. During my second school
time, I got entangle with a PC, learning BASIC
programming using Texas Instrument in a Radio Shack. I
made a point to drive to the College Mall for teaching
myself BASIC programming. PC entered Malaysian market in
the 80's. My kid told me there were chatting programs on
the computer, which I can talk to the world like the ham
radio. And I was hooked to the IRC and MIRC, forgetting
ham radio, not knowing the ongoing development and
changes that had taken place. I didn't care about my
expired ham ticket anymore.

Najib meant well when he said the
party fought what Mandela was fighting for. But his
statement is viewed differently by other people. Here is
one that does not agree with Najib's declaration.
THINK FOR ME, PLEASE
NAJIB SHOULD PAY FOR THE RANKING
The British never conquered all
the states of Peninsular Malaya. Some of our Kings found
it better to invite the British to advise on the running
of their own states except on religious matters. Rather
than mere advise we allow them to plan and run the
administration and the state. Easy work for us.
Don't be surprise if Najib
keeps on hiring advisers and consultants. It was the
traditional aristocrat practices.
How many of us are depending on
others to think and make decision for us ? Old
housewives always said ."Ask your father....." when the
kids asked for some decisions. Husbands did the thinking
job, wives did the household chores.
Our leaders prefer to do the
thinking for us. They told us everything, everyday on
the public media. The submission of our thought to their
commands will keep them in control.
And how many of you prefer your children to listen to
you rather than let them think and decide for themselves
Thinking people compare
relationships between events and phenomena, of the past
and the present, observing comparative behaviors,
digging for facts and truths. Because of their nature, they always be the victims
of persecution and punishments. They sometimes rebel.
Somehow Najib does not trust
the Malaysians to do the thinking for him. And Mahyuddin
seemed to follow Njib's footstep. So they hired
thinkers and planners from abroad. We paid millions to
the foreigners to make our education system at the lower
Malaysians think well ? Looking at the question and
answer sessions in the Parliament, I tend to think
Malaysuans are not smart enough. Seldom do we hear
discussions on issues detrimental to our economy and
to say smart people are out of UMNO leaving the useless
guys trying to control the intelligent mass. Would you
believe that there isn't anyone able to think for the
best of our nation ? Probably Malaysians are really
dumb. You can judge yourself with the various statements
made by the top officers and politicians. And the masses
are at loggerhead on language to be used in Mathematics
and sciences. And now we hear of PBS, of which our
Ministers are painting beautiful pictures about the new
system, which probably they get from the foreign
our final question is 'Can't our Ministers think by
themselves ?' Or is it easier and more convenient
for them to let the consultant do the thinking for them
so that they can think of some dirty ways to retain
their power ? It does not require a university degree to
think evil. It does not need a law degree to utter
stupid words and to become beastly. But it takes a great
politician to buy the refurbish jets and sub-marine, to
destroy forests, agriculture land and water catchment
areas, and to import foreigners to work in our country.

The word ghost

am not scared of any haunted place. At 9 I walked across
a graveyard, taking up a challenge from my peers. But
around the age too I did see some flying being among
trees behind my house. I was told they were called 'tengelong'.
I also believe
that there might be other things with different
characteristics and nature exist side by side unknown to
me. They were talking of 'Toyol', a small
creature that can
penetrate a small hole. Some people bought the 'Toyol'
from the Middle East and brought back home, asking it to
steal either fifty dollar or a hundred dollar note. At a

Halus. Makhluk Halus a creature, not visible to
human eyes, but can take form if it wished to be seen.
Western scholars who are doing research on
this type of creature.
Jinn is the main subject of research. To believe in the
power of such creatures, Kedah has been the beating team
in the last FA cup, and even the team from the Middle
East was never a champion any any sports. And in wars
they were badly trashed.
Would you say
Manchester United or Barcelona were using these
creatures to make them champion ? Or the Jinn might say
that the power could not fight the fusion of nature made
by man ?
The next game
will be televised, the final between Kedah and Perlis.
You try to closely watch Kedah goal keeper. If you do
notice strange happenings, you can start to ask similar

Last night I yelled at a referee
for allowing Selangor's goal against Kedah while he was
pointing the free kick spot Selangor player quickly took
the ball away from the spot and dribbled for the goal
even when every of Kedah player was looking at the
referee and the spot he was pointing. At the
Kedah-Pahang game the linesman flagged offside a free-kick
ball. Occasionally I yelled at the coach whenever the
players repeatedly made the same errors.
Of course it is easy to shout and
yell than to do the work. If I were a referee probably
stones will be thrown at me after the game and mob may

Coaching job is tough. It also
depends on luck. Indiscipline players mean 'a very bad
luck' for his carrier. Besides a coach must know the
dribbling skill, body shielding, the art of kicking the
ball, stamina training, health sciences, about food and
nourishment and most of all strategy in the playing
field. The hardest is to build an individual skill.
Most of all the coach, players and
those involve in the team should know what made the
champions. There are some footage documenting the making
of the champions. The one I saw could be described as
'bizarre and cruel'. The training was painful. The coach
demand for the maximum. There were tears in the

WE DON'T MAKE FLOOD
I could remember well and
vividly how PAS get the lashing when flood happened in
Kelantan. In fact when a tiger killed a victim in the
same state PAS was blamed.
Flood is not the making of Nik
Aziz or Najib. Sea water found it's way to cover
residential areas in mainland China and the United
States. Heavy downpour ever flooded the Holly Kaabah.
Man can be blamed when flooding
is not caused by the wrath of nature. Light but
prolonged rainfall can caused flood if the water has no
way to escape.
My form four student wrote that
the felling of trees on the hill tops and the barren
hills could not in anyway slow down the rainwater down
the hills, which can cause flash flood.
And it is absurd to say," Your
flood is due to poor planning. Our flood is the wrath of
nature. It is OK to have flood in our states but not OK
What we should do is try to
prevent and prepare for the worse. When we suggest the
manufacture of a cheap and durable dinghy to be kept at
home probably no one will take heed.
Food, water and electricity can
come later once we are in a dinghy. We can stay alive
for days without them. Even then, if the rapid is too
strong big boats may not be of use.
Only silly people vote for
politicians who exploit flood to project themselves.

Is UMNO following Christianity
step by step each day ? Declaring war with other fellow
Muslims had long been criticized by Christian scholars
to demonize Islam. Of course at that criticism we can
back-pointed that Christians too kill each other. My
friend added Hitler and Americans killed more people
than the Muslims.
That was not the point. The point
is in the Middle East the enemy of the states exploited
this issue to weaken the national bond for easy conquest
and to maintain power.
Today Malaysians are clever enough
to use the words Divide and Rule policy. Is it not irony
that it was we ourselves are making the division ?
Israel never discount Iran as the
biggest threat. She sees Iran as a Muslim country not as
a Shiet nor Sunni. Wasn't it Iran that plays important
part in strengthening Hezbollah ?
UMNO is the starting point to
split Islam, splitting the Muslims so that they will
hate each other by wanting to put it in the
constitution. YET we claim that Islam means peace.
Wouldn't the world be laughing to
see UMNO like a snake with two heads ? One head says
1Malaysia. Another says 1Malays. Soon out of this
confusion someone will come up with a new idea 1Malaysia
UMNO members do not seem in favor

temple, engage Jews and Christians to either advise or

It is a waste of money to make
themselves jesters at UMNO General Assembly. That's the
highest IQ they are parading to the world. There isn't
even a unity of thought between the leadership and the

:"Make me a king and you take the
country," said the local head to the colonizer. Happily
the foreigners agreed, brought gifts to the King
including the Western shoes. Shoes were something new,
for the Malays have been barefooted for a long time.
The White men put the right shoe
on the left foot and the left to the right, photographed
the King and sent back the picture to England. The
English nobles were laughing seeing the Malays wearing
shoes on different feet. "That's the Malays we are
dealing with," they said with laughter.
Anybody else is saying that ?
"Make me a king and you take the country ?" Open your
eyes wide and listen to the words, decipher the
behaviors. You may hear it and see it and finally
The British once defined Malays as
a human specie with brown skin, living on trees and
emotional. The early nationalists were from Penang,
Melaka and other Straits states, either of Indian or
Arab origin, married to the local women. They were
inspired by what was happening in the Middle East. They
set up schools that also taught skill for vocation.
They were not pure Malays.
The people of the East coast,
Kelantan and Trengganu were doing business even before
the coming of the colonial power, using boats that
sailed to Patani and other Nusantara area. Patani was a
strong Islamic center for a long time. I don't remember
people from these states ever said "Make me a king and I
give you this country".
Changing the phrase 'I give you
this country' to 'I give you the forest to plunder, the
agriculture land and the hill top' is more pertinent.
That's just a small part of it.
I have many stories about the
foolishness of the Malays. It happened in the past but
it never ended there. It is still here, alive and
kicking, with greater magnitude.
MANY ARE BEASTS ?
Minimum wage in the United
States is balance by The Right to Hire and Fire. Firing
a worker is as simple as saying hello. 'You are fired"
is the end of you.
Malaysian and other foreign
students were easy to get job; the men went for house
and building cleaning, the women went to wash bottles. I
don't remember how much they were paid. One student
could pay the whole university fee. The women, mostly
housewives, were really enjoying the income.
Factories and contractors
prefer the outsiders to the local. Why not when they
only paid US800 for architecture jobs to foreigners but
US3000 to the local architect.
Collective bargaining drove
firms out. Here in Malaysia we have firms that escaped
minimum wage in Canada and USA employing our people that
take more than 2/3 lesser.
Our minimum wage law will bring
both happiness and frustration. Those who can escape
will try to escape, and those who can't will transfer
the burden to the consumers.
If people come to me and ask
for a job, my answer is ' There is no job. But if you
want to work, you can work. I give you the bare minimum.
Take it or leave it. I don't need workers'.
I predict that the firms will
move out to the countries without the minimum wage law.
And at the same time the Malaysians will have to pay
more until we say 'Look ! Our ringgit has no value....'

How bad is the illuminati ? How
bad are the Jews ? Those are not as bad as beasts in
human form. By their speech and deeds we would
immediately recognize them as animals that should be
cast in hell fire. And they don't deserve to die but
they deserve to be tortured as long as possible. Make
sure they won't die and can't commit suicide.
So far I saw there is only ONE,
the female beast. I wish I live long enough to see her
being tortured, while asking her to repeat all her words
that she shamelessly thrown.
Many of us don't have any power.
We can appeal to God to show her the right path, and use
our telepathic mind to send an anger message. Among the
millions there will be some with strong mind and
ability. Mine wants her to fall sick and mentally
unstable, near to madness.
The Beast talk as if there is no
God in this universe, and as if it has no religion; the
words are like devil and the behavior is beastly.
From the Islamic point of view the
speech is recognized as syirik or kufur; claiming
oneself as a God has to be worse than beasts.
Open your ears and hear well who
else will claim that he or his group is a God. I believe
more will come forward to claim as one.
Other people assess us by our
words and deeds. They won't say stupid to our stupidity.
They play to appease our emotions. Emotional men and
women are easily captured by soothing words and soft
talks and praise.
Day by day they are losing respect
and integrity, the properties they own, and the power
they have. They will keep on talking of the same till
the day of judgment.

CHANGE WAS UMNO's NOT PAS OR DAP
When we were boys among other rhymes
we used to yak was 'Pahang, Perak, Selangor, Negeri
Sembilam. Pak Hang Berak Bercamur Tengah Jalan.
What we didn't know was the rhyme was
about the Federated Malay States. The federated Malay
States were Pahang, Perak, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan.
The federated Malay states had a common law. They have
their weekend on Sundays.
The Unfederated Malay State,
Johor Kelantan, Perlis, Kedah and Trengganu each with a
British advisor, has it's own law. They have the weekend
Perlis and Johor changed their
weekend from Friday to Sunday a few years ago as the
UMNO state government thought it was better that way for
the economy. Certainly it was not under the pressure of
any opposition party. Neither was any intention to
change the Friday prayer to Sunday.
Friday weekend leave the impact among
the Muslims that this is an Islamic nation. Yet no
Muslim passed any remark to the weekend changed by
Perlis and Johor.
Recently Johor wanted to revert back
to Friday. Surely it would be met by opposition
especially from the business community.
What transpires out of this
proposition and opposition was PAS was blamed saying
that PAS supported DAP demanding the Muslims to have
their Friday prayer on Sunday.
It was similar to UMNO accusing DAP
wanting to abolish monarchy when it was UMNO that really
had wanted to throw the Sultanate.
Why didn't someone blame UMNO wanting
the Muslims to pray on Sunday when Perlis and Johor
changed the weekend ?
Shops and banks that prefer Sunday's
weekend in Kedah operate their business on Friday and
close on Sundays. Many car shops did the same.
I would like to see UMNO to be more
reasonable and rationale rather than depicting their
mere sentiments. Protecting wastage and corruption and
price hike is not only stupid but greater than moronic.
How could we show that we are that silly, like the
Hassan and Hussein who gave away the countries as long
as they were made King.

corruption has been a norm, starting from the most top
to the lowest bottom. And killing is almost an everyday
affair. What went wrong and why ?
I rang up my student asking whether her teen daughter is
aware of the most recent murder of a young girl and two
other kids in the family. Teen girls sneaked out quietly
without informing the family members where they went. At
the jogging tracks, in the park, they were seen with
group of boys smoking, or at a more quiet place intimate
courting. Several young girls had been reported missing
and found dead. It was an UMNO strong man, Rais Yatim,
who said morality is parent's responsibility. It was the
NGO and the government who were talking of the right of
individuals. Schools are not allowed to discipline the
children, and the teachers just couldn't care less.
people talking of the suspect murderer, a boyfriend of
the murdered girl living in Perlis. But it could be
anybody. And another body was found in the river in
Kuala Lumpur. Religious official was shot. A custom
officer was murdered. Altantuya was bombed.
is corruption here ? They even corrupt the devil to say
they are good. People who gave did not report but
whispered they gave money to the police and the
immigrations. And they pay for the good report card.
take a stand to say we are free of corruptions and our
country is safe. We can write volumes of our greatness,
while at the background there is a report of daily
killing and paying for gratitude and favors.

stringent laws are considered savage. Parents attacked
the school and the
teachers ferociously and
aggressively. So much so smoking and administering drugs
by kids have been ignored by the schools and general

become so very greedy and wanting more for our life.
They stole millions. The young and junior officers want
some too. It is easy to close our eyes than to sacrifice
our lives unnecessarily. And partly leaders are to be
blamed too. They left to others to run the country while

how to retain perpetual power. We should ask ourselves,

LAZAR EXPOSURE - DO YOU BELIEVE IT ?
Do we need to be economist to know
about wealth, money and resources ? A country rich in
petroleum, uranium and other resources can choose to
print few currencies, enough to distribute to the
productive population. What happen then ? When supply is
in abundance people cam buy with smaller amount of
money. In short the value of money is high. On the other
hand a bare country without resource and other wealth,
can choose to print tons and tons of currencies. Imagine
the cost of an apple.
When we compare countries and income
it is vital to compare the wealth of the nation as well
including the ratio of the population to the amount of
available wealth. A national income of 200 billion with
a population of 5 million is different from the NI of
200 billion with the population 50 million.
If printing more money can enhance
people's livelihood, Bangladesh and other poor countries
would have increase their volume of currencies.
I am not against minimum wage. But
when I heard the big man of Najib mentioned foreign
countries in comparison I merely asked myself how they
were compared; did they took account of comparative
resources and wealth and the population ?
A pay rise is shot-lived. The neck to
neck race between salary and prices will never end.
Could a blind in economy be wrong ?
Already we felt the rapid rate of the declining value of
our money. The purchasing power has plunge down.

CAN YOU CALL

Here is what my ARRL 1977 says."When
desiring to make a contact, all that is necessary is to
indicate you are in frequency. On some machines this may
be accomplished by 'This is WA1RDX mobile one

for a single CQ followed by identification. Never send a
long CQ;..." Note that mobile one is a location

Either this MP is stupid or
born to be bad. He said, "The government help all
citizen. Therefore in return they must vote for BN."
Time and again with a loud and
audible voice the citizens are talking of PUBLIC fund.
Giving money to Shahrizat's family is not the money that
belongs to UMNO or Mahyuddin. Unless all taxes are
only from UMNO or BN members.
The Chinese outcry is because
much of their money were discriminately spent.
The salary of the said MP is
paid by DAP, UMNO, PAS and almost every person in the
country. He should be grateful to the people and not
only to UMNO.
Words like those so far came
from the Malays or stupid natives. "The government will
not develop those areas who did not vote BN." If they
are not stupid then they must be very bad people, who
themselves, do not understand what gratitude mean.
This country does not belong to

for not submitting to UMNO's demand is not from the

out more about the gadget.
So far I can contain myself from
unnecessary spending on upgrading my iPhone 4 to iPhone

I went to Sony outlet and
had a look at the said handycam. It has no 3D as
advertised. The battery last for two hours and the
built-in projector did not impress me at all. The
zooming capability is excellent.
Anything can be done in Malaysia
because it is the desire of the government to make as
many people happy as possible. There are many ways
that people go round the bush to legalize things.
To legally going on the air you
either apply for a commercial repeater license or pay to
use the approved relay terminal. You can use the it at
your own will, without having to register your
equipment. The MCMC either doesn't bother to check the
user nor monitor the communication.
A second method is to apply for
frequency to be used by a certain organization; name it
as RELA, Jawatan Kuasa Keselamatan, or any other. Create
special call signs and distribute them among your
friends. Once given they can call themselves the members
of the relevant unit. Buy rigs and use them at your
Of course the next step is to
erect your own repeater.
So far we did hear these kind of
activities used against the opposition party, giving
report the movements of the opponents but the supporters
of the opposition has yet to use these radio to attack
the ruling party. They could easily break into the
repeater and throw slurs and curses at their opponents
and the leaderships.
I think that will not happen.
I have to be a nut to define AA
as I see it. The phrase apparatus assignment seems to
imply the assignment of the apparatus, in this
case the transmitting equipment, to a person or a
company to use them. In other words it is the permission
given by a radio authority to a person or organization.
Four things would be involved; the type of the hardware,
the name of the user, the fee and the certificate of
All government and public
organizations need to have authorization for the usage
of the transceivers. Hence they are to be registered.
No where in the permission
mentioned the need to pass the Radio Amateur
Examination. Security forces for private bodies do not
sit for the exam.
There are two type of radio
tests. Normally for those who completed a course or pass
a test would be awarded with certificate. C & G does
award such valuable document.
I don't have any, neither for
RAE nor CW.
I think 99.98% of the apparatus
assigned do not match with the users. To fix the
anomalies is some hard work which is not worth
AMANAH - TRUST
One of the biggest sins in Islam
is Breach of Trust. To tell a person that he cannot be
trusted, would rage him. Yet he is of a habit of
breaking promises, cancelling an appointment at the last
minute and didn't deliver what he is supposed to convey.
A habitual person will think that is just a normal thing
and nothing wrong with it. To such a person telling lies
is just like taking a breakfast.
I find that such a person is a
glib speaker, with the intent to impress others of his
capability and expertise in every body of knowledge. He
will come with a lot of excuses and reasons, always
blame other people for any mishaps and more so cleverly
maneuver himself to get what he wants.
You have to be awake to
recognize a person, smart enough to trace lies and
deception. If you are asleep he is bound to sting on

postponed all my activities because a person promise to
come to my house at a certain time but hours later

To me punctuality is utmost
important. I don't want people to wait for me at the
promised hour. If there is a traffic jam I would call
him to inform of the situation.
It is true that human are
infallible. We make mistakes The fact is we do
know when a mistake is made or a promise has to be
broken at time of emergency. But if they are repeated,
we will eventually trace the deliberate efforts just to
satisfy his own needs or lusts.
To many to be honest and
trustworthy is a strife. No matter what the world is we
can't just follow it. The world is full of
contradictions and hypocrisy. Refer back to the teaching
of religion. No religion would condone unfulfilled
promises and lies. They are sinful in they eyes of the
Those who don't believe in God
do live with their conscience, governed by
self-discipline that creates responsibility,
courteousness, trustworthy and honesty. It would be

people in abeyance. Fulfilling a promise creates an
atmosphere of sweet friendship.

DOCUMENT YOUR HAM
societies and individuals are advised to document
their activities, a copy of which is to be sent to
National Archive. The arrangement and the layout should
be like what is found in magazines; the instant of the

introduction. All photographs and other images should be
well explained and dated. Use color laser printer to
print the documents.

Malaysia began with the birth of license B hams. This
modern history should began with the idea and the fight

of the events.

the games we used to play-chasing kites and hunting for
fighting fish. They don't know the trees we used to
climb, the kote mamak fruit, the buah gorah, the pokok

type of hawkers coming to peddle various kind of foods
in our kampong. And more so, they don't know how close
the Malays and the Chinese were.
Efforts to pass the present to the
future generation is called civilization building. It
shows we care about our future. Only if you know how the

will realize how backward can we be. Theirs were
detailed and very profound.

of preparing a documentation of the CQDX World Wide
Contest at Hairies's house. That's indeed a very
encouraging idea. Once published and perused the feeling
of achievement and joy will transpire more effort and

gather useful information for the future generation.

BN STRATEGIES FOR
There is nothing unlawful for
BN to instruct it's machinery to prepare for the next
General Election. And I find it a real fun to observe
how they work. Money has started to roll out buying as
many as opposition members are possible. The
parliamentary debate is exploited to show how good and
honest BN is. Religious teachers are engaged to hate PAS
on the radio. They poke someone to suggest the 12 year
car life, then BN came to the rescue saving the people.
The PAS-UMNO unity talk is more serious to discuss
issues threatening the Muslims to weaken PAS-DAP unity
and to break PKR completely.
The ulama is telling about
sectarian conflicts in other Islamic countries, the
value of peace in the country, the flourish of Islam in
Malaysia to convince the people that BN ensure peace and
stability. Voting opposition will cause killings as what
is happening in the Middle East.
The early marching is not
without fear. The defeat at Sungai Limau showed the the
failure of BN's full enforcement. If they do not step up
the effort the defeat would put some people in the deep
dungeons. Since Sabah and Sarawak gave life to BN, Najib

IS HAM RADIO THAT
What amazed most people in the years
before the cell-phone and the internet were known, was
that private individuals can communicate with people
across the globe. Mobile phone was considered a new
phenomena and we have to pay a considerable amount to
own first production.
The pride of those hams were they
could master Morse codes, which not everyone could
acquire, and transmitters were homebrewed. There were no
ham equipments in the market in the early days. RTTY
were using a big noisy machines which could be found in
the junk stores. I remember buying one for about RM50
and homebrewed the interface. The highest the old hams
achieved was the SSTV.
In the early '80s PC started.
Communication soft wares like the IRC and MIRC began
without voice. It was a very interesting mode where the
whole world meet. Today internet gives us everything;
visual communication with extreme clarity of voice and
image, which from the edge of the globe could be
seen and heard at our home.
And now knowledge is in abundance. We
can follow live lectures by Professors from overseas
universities, learn sciences and
movies and live events. The magnificence of computer and
internet is beyond description.
Yet I find people who praise ham
radio as a source of everything, when it can't provide
even 5% of the computer ability. I was asked what I have
learned from ham radio. My answer was I learned about
people and a little of their culture. I learned the
different between the old and the new hams; their
thinking and attitudes. Try to monitor the ham band and
draw out what you can learn from the communication.
I can't say how many percents of the
Malaysians hams are on computer rather than the radio,
and how many percent of their time spent on each. It is
easier to find a ham on the facebook and yahoo rather
than on the radio. I believe the same situation applies
to the rest of the world's ham operators. Those who
totally left ham radio parked themselves at computer
communication soft wares.
It is the human psychology that
attract some people to the radio; the crave to be a DJ,
wanting to have their voiced heard by the public on the
air. It is the awareness that people are monitoring to
them made them feel so great and satisfying.
That's the reason why I suggested
that SARES and MARES to do a lot of training on First
aid and rescue procedure, learning knots and bandages
and mouth to mouth respiration. The radio is a mere
communication tool, not a magic wand. They must not have
a belief that holding a handy gives them a super energy
that comes from Krypton.
The most significant progress of ham
equipment is it's transformation into SDR stuff that can
process incoming signal to the best quality the normal
radio could not do. It is a quantum leap of technology,
so much so the past knowledge of radio electronics is
left far behind, nearing a total fading.
No doubt Ham Radio is a good hobby
and interesting but it does not possess the power

A MAN WITH A
Less than 1 year old, my Viva
was defaced on several parts. I didn't know who knocked
the back and when. There were several scratches which I
think could be due to the quick wash machine. I just
ignored it. What happened outside the car won't affect
my driving. I felt comfortable inside. But the Produa
lady was surprise at the condition of my car when I took
it for servicing.
The day before yesterday
somehow the left side of the body kissed and embraced
the back side of a huge parking 4 X 4. Thinking it was
minor I continued to drive until I reached my
destination. I took a look at the body. The scratch was
long and too bad. I decided this time I must take it for
painting to hide from severe ugliness.
I passed through a workshop
'Knocking and Painting' and stopped by. There was a man
washing a car part. I told him of the scratch and asked
him to have a look. He said he need to do the bumper
work too. He could do it there and then but I need to
wait for several hours. I suggested the next day ( ie
today ). He agreed. The shop opened at 9.30 am.
This morning after buying
breakfast for my wife and having my usual breakfast at
the usual restaurant I drove to the workshop. The man
was there. I told him I need to know the price. "RM280,"
he said. I showed him my surprise for thinking it costs
only RM150. He insisted on his price because he had to
adjust the bumper. Seeing that the deface was quite
serious, I agreed. He sent me home and took the car with
him, promising to send back at 6 pm.
Today is a dialysis day for my
wife. I used my old Kancil to transport her to the
dialysis center. At 12.45 pm she was called in. I
estimated the completion would be at 5 pm. At 3.30 pm I
went out for my daily exercise. One and fifteen
minutes later I went to pick her up my , bought her some
dinner and went home.
As soon as she was inside the
house and having her dinner the workshop man rang me up
saying he is on his way to send back the car. Several
minutes later he arrived. I jumped into the driver's
seat, took out the money and gave him, asking him to
count . The distant is about 2 or 3 kilometers away. The
traffic was very heavy. I talked to him about Alor Setar
before and Alor Setar now; about traffic jam, food and
the astronomical property prices.
He said he rented his business
space. And he told me about the danger of foodstuffs
that contain oil and starch when I told him about the
strong Chinese ladies at the jogging track.
Finally we arrived at his
place. "Thank you," said I. He took out RM30 and gave
back to me. I refused to take it because I found the job
was well done and I was happy with it. He went out, put
the money on the seat, thanking me ,and close the door.
How could UMNO people made me
think bad about the Chinese ? He didn't have to return

TRAVELING THE WORLD FOR SOMETHING
I know of a man who would travel
the world over for a song in the native language. The
song was Besame Mucho. At hotels or night clubs he would
request for the song and recorded it.
Another man traveled for the best
tasty halal food. He can talk about it for hours and it
was interesting to hear his story. Since he is now
staying in Kuala Lumpur, he has tasted all the best food
and had gone to the best restaurants.
Later I developed a small portion
of the taste traveling for food. But it was for the same
kind from different countries, namely Briyani. Except
for the visit in USA I would hunt for Long John, sea
food restaurant. Once I tasted the long desired
delicacy, the Red Lobster.
Briyani was easily found in London
and New York because the restaurants ere clustered at
one single point. The best so far was from Hong Kong,
second went to Australia. They are tastier than the
Yet there are people who travel to
sleep with women and then boast of their experiences
with the world's women, to which I would say travel in

Of all food is the best. The
Muslims can still hunt for the best Halal food from the
world over, or at worse food free of pork or pork
products. They could always feel relief at food shops
served by the Jews. In term of religious and common
sense the Jews are always better than the Christians.
I remember when I was in Hawaii
where I didn't know where the Muslim's restaurant was, I
usually went to Alamoana Center for meal. There were Tai
and Chinese food. There were fried rice and fried mee.
They were serve with pork. I went to Mexican and Spanish
stalls and asked for pork. "We don't sell pork here,"
came the reply. So I purchase my meal from them.

WEATHER - WOULD YOU CARE ?
Malaysians are not so much
concerned about the weather. Either we have rain or hot
and dry. The concern on weather is when they intend to
travel North like China, Japan, Korea and European
countries. They need to know what dress to bring.
I know that Summer is about
June in Northern hemisphere and December would be the
opposite. Yet one must know what's the temperature like
in Summer London. I always know that Winter Los Angeles
would be about 15 Celcius. And I know pretty well how it
feels at 15 degrees.
Malaysians are more worried of
flooding during wet season and water shortage when it is
dry. The water catchment areas had been raped for condos
and expensive houses. Such calamities have always been
exploited by the politicians to blame their
political opponents for the cause of flooding and the
shortage of water.
Citizens are called to recycle
rain water and to reduce car washing when it dries. VIPs
and Ministers would not suffer as what the citizens are
into. Rakyat diutamakan untuk menghadapi musibah.
We too are concerned about haze. Some big guys escaped
by going overseas for vacation. The citizens are paying
RM1.50 for a face mask. Hawkers are worried about rain.
Our water crisis is not due to
dryness but it is the sin of privatization. Think of
Mahathir, the king of privatization, opening public
services and utilities to cronies. And think of the
UMNO's policy on property development that raze the hill
tops to satisfy the greed for money.

cold weather could pay to feel the cold air. Else people
make a trip to Korea and Japan in Winter.
California 15 degrees with
bright sun shine was a lovely weather for me. Short pan
and T-Shirt made me comfortable enough. But daylight is
short during Winter. 5 pm could be very dark. And when
win blew it chilled the inner bones.
The heat in Summer could kill
people in some places. We feel like living near the
oven. There were heat waves at some part of Saudi Arabia
as hot as the American Midwest.
For travelers and people who
plan to go for holidays within or outside the country
they must find out about the weather at the place of
destinations. Malayan East Coast could be at the mercy
of Typhoon and the strong easterlies.
UMNO Ministers are always
protected from the hostile or severe weathers for they
claimed they are God's party. Would they care about
whatever weather, water source and flood ?

fact I have discussed with my Chinese friends
about the problem of raising the retirement age.

do not simply things out of the thin air. Yet
you see how Shahrizat's husband and she herself

They fought to deny. But I say they are cheating

THE TAX YOU
Income tax could be evaded but not the tax you
pay when you buy things. Call it by any name,
you pay as you buy. Unless you decide to produce
food by yourself. The natives in the deep jungle
would pay the least tax, only when they buy for
There are people who aren't happy when their tax
money went to Rosmah's expenditure or to
Shahrizat's husband. And they want the police to
keep them safer with the money they paid.
The government got the money from it's citizen
and from God. Petroleum is God's given. Both are
for the whole population. The fairness of the
distribution and a wise usage will not be
questioned by the people.
GST or sales tax, corporate or income taxes are
for the governance of the country. It is not for
Mahyuddin to decide to whom the money were to be
given. But he did, to Shahrizat's husband and
for Rosmah's flight expenditure.
Or else let us propose that the government
should only tax BN supporters.

MARES, SARES AND JPAM
GOING QRT ?
Time, money and energy were put in to get the
group together for the CQ Worldwide DX Contest. All were
for the spirit of ham radio. More so it was fun.
I monitored DX stations in the
contest. What excite me were a few stations went back at
about 10 - 12 wpm. At that slow speed they won't be able
to catch up with big points. But I knew they were there
not to win. Giving support in participating is healthy
I don't know whether any living
Malaysian hams today were so enthusiastic to sacrifice
for such an event. I knew Eshee was one of those active
participating in CW contest but he went alone. So was I.
The effort of 9M2SM is
commendable. From my point of view it placed Malaysia as
a cultured class. It is the CW itself. Only the other
day I heard a 85 year old man rag chewing with a 23 year
old youth in Morse codes.
I salute 9M2SM and the crews
for flying our national flag and it made Malaysia proud.

JPAM is an official government
organization for emergency, search and rescue. They are
paid to do the job. MARES and SARES are private bodies.
There shall be no conflict between
the three as to the procedure and the process of
operation. The line of duty has been laid clearly. MARES
and SARES must know them so that they will not step over
the head of respective units.
The public and the government are
concerned of public safety and security. Disaster area
has always been cordoned to avoid thefts and robberies.
Hence the private voluntary bodies must make sure the
memberships are of people of splendid reputation,
honest, having integrity and trustworthy.
To be of substance both MARES and
SARES must understand they are not merely to provide
communication support. They have to know first aid, the
art of rescuing and survival skill. JPAM are trained and
undergo regular exercise.
MARES and SARES members must
undergo the rescue and first aid course from time to
time. It won't be enough relaxing in the armchairs
checking net and having chats on the band days in and
May I ask what sort of curriculum
is followed by both of the private organization ? If
they haven't any it is a high time to draw one to cover
all required skills and knowledge. They have to know the
knots, mouth to mouth resuscitation, and bandage
methods. In short rescue is more than holding a hand
held. And they must abide by the set rules.
Could I be a good ham when not
using QRT at all in my regular communication ? Below are
some of the samples usage:
"Gentlemen, I got to make this
my final. Thank you very much....9M2ZZZ, this is 9M2AR,
signing and listening for all final..."
the band is very noisy. Let's call it a day. Thanks for
"It's time now.I have to go
gentlemen. See you all again...."
None of the samples above
mention QRT. I figure people who don't use it in
telephony must be very stupid, like myself.
Really I found it difficult even to use QRU as
much as QRT. The one I commonly used before QTH has been
transformed to 'location' -'My location is Alor Setar'
and QSL too has changed to Affirmative.
How about QRX ? I do use it at a specific point of
time to tell someone to stand-by, to hold on for a
minute, until I call back again, when my wife called me
for something or when I am to quickly attend to
something else. I never tell myself to QRX but to tell
the others. Still to use plain language is better for it
does not create confusion.
I am of a view that the Q-Code should not be a part
of RAE. It should be a part of CW test. When
people are too smart and too clever, they want people to
know that they are expert. They keep on using things
even more than the ship to shore messages.
I think it is a high time for hams
to recognize between interrupting and joining a
When two stations are in deep
discussions over a certain topic like the
preparations for an examination by the kids, it is not
wise for us to sending message that we want to join the
conversation. I have much experience of a foreign
station who understand our language, breaking in. He
gave his name, our signal report, weather and passed the
transmission back to me. Passing back and forth made us
forget our topic. Not only that it would be very awkward
for me to continue with the topic with another station
in. He didn't add nor contribute to the topic in
discussion. I would call in interrupting.
Can't you interrupt at all ? You
can. You may have something emergency or probably need a
quick report for the newly fixed antenna. Get the report
and the info and asked those stations to continue.
On the other hand those two
stations may be talking about camera and both are not
well verse with the terms and the gadgets themselves,
you can break in to join them. You can tell them more of
the kind of camera, the art and technique of using them
and providing much more information. The topic can be
general and not of personal matters will not cause any
interruption. You join the conversation.
Mention your call sign between a
pause, usually when one station is passing the
transmission to the other. It is to be full call sign.
Remember this is not a pile up or a contest.
What you may hear from the
international stations may not be right at all. To copy
the practice is never a welcome. Foreign stations were
heard to use CB lingi and style in passing transmission.
A few you may not hear call signs at all.

NEVER SIMPLY TRUST
The killer acted good when he
first applied for the job. He showed good behavior,
punctual and obedient to gain trust and confidence. He
was praised. So were all other hypocrites in amateur
radio or in other disciplines. The planned was to rob a
bank and to escape with the money.
I learned how to distrust
people a long time ago as I saw bad people in white
dress, behaving like angels when they want something
from you. And quickly turned their backs once they get
what they want. Even your friends can stab your back.
Should the employer learned
a hard way about employing staffs or stick with the
policy and procedure set by the rules ?
I saw how the British
immigration officers dealt with foreigners who were
about to enter Britain from Calais France. About 14
Malaysian tourists from my group were rejected at the
immigration points. They were very strict and as fierce
as a tiger, not allowing a single of us to near the
Our kindness, laziness,
stupidity and 'tidak apa' that brought in thousands of
criminals in our country; thieves and murderers. The
import of Africans were due to avarice and greed. Didn't
we know the probable consequences ? They prey on people
in Europe, Saudi Arabia and now in Malaysia.
If you are somebody big, a lot
of people will come to seek your favor. They will put on
innocent faces, talk lowly with full of courtesy, bow
and nod their heads always in agreement with you. It is
a grave mistake to trust and assume they are all of good
Never trust anyone but
yourself. Innocent face, soft spoken and docile look
will not tell who a person is.
Most of us fall to the lies
and deception. We chose wrong leaders to lead us. Then
they stole millions and got away with their crimes. You
will pay for the lost money through your teeth.
