IDENTITY OF TERRORISTS

are terrorists. Even the government of
Angola and other African countries treat
Muslims with such an ID. What surfaced in
the MH370 suspect list were people with fake
passports. Further check shows the two of
them bought the plane ticket at the same
time from the same source. Now there is
another fake passport of a Chinese
nationality. All were not Arabs. Could the
three of them be Muslims ?
if they are all not Muslims ?
may not know how many passengers are using
fake passports each day. Many years ago one
Bangladeshi was asking me something about
Malaysian immigration at the Changi Airport.
I asked for his passport and was surprise to
see his photo was attached with a slight
glue on it. I said I could not answer his
question but deep in my heart I believed
that the Malaysian immigration will not
allow him through.

puzzled me is about the stolen passport in
Bangkok. The Italian or the Austrian man
flying from their country of origin could
not have purchased the passport in Thailand.
It would be easier for a syndicate to forge
any traveling documents themselves. A well
organized international terrorist would have
more sophisticated machines for anything.

checking their background and ideological
beliefs they may not show any association
with any of the dangerous group.

not any other airline ? Anwar was not on the

Those Malays who believe in religion will

we have been doing all along. It is a
clear indication that the unbelievers do
not believe both in God and religion.
Honesty and considerate are not the
property of the religious people. Even

ONE DESPISED STUDENT AND ONE DATUKSHIP
This morning I received a SMS from my former

parents was Datuk Mohd Arif, our former SKM
student. SKM is a student that went for a
mere skill training. Only the lowest grade
achievers applied for the course. In short
they were formerly regarded as the 'useless'
students, despised by their former schools,
and they were in the lowest category of
students in vocational education. At that
time we have vocational education and

SMS was too late. I have decided to take my
sick wife to Padang Besar, for a ride, to
kill her boredom. I replied the message,
"Sorry I cannot attend the PTA meeting
because I am taking my wife to Padang Besar.
Send my best regard to Mohd Arif. Vocational
college is now neglecting this type of
student. I feel sorry for the country."
My abhorrence towards the present
educationists is because they do not give
any priority to the future of the weak
students. The Ministry of education would
not be able to answer the number of form 5
students who can't read and write, the
Muslim students who can't perform prayers,
and what to do with the weak ones. They hold
the PHD degrees. That made me wonders what
kind of mindset they have to enable them
earning the doctorate.

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE HATE ROSMAH ?
Rosmah Mansor is a public figure.
Everyone knows her. Some like her and
some don't. You can't force people to
like you. This is a free country. Rosmah
has the right to put on head cover or
not. Others may be indifferent to her
dress. Some hate to see her without the
cover. I read about persons who do not
like her body size. You can't scold the
guys for that.

And it is all because of you, the
been taken away from me, including my
time, including my hobbies. I don't get
to play badminton now because I am very
busy doing things for the rakyat,” Prime
Minister Najib Razak’s wife was quoted
as saying by Malaysiakini.
She also expressed
her hopelessness if what she had
sacrificed was insufficient to turn
people’s perception towards her.
"If that is still
not right then I don't know what to
say,” said Rosmah.
The NGO went for her support and
demanded the comment on her should be
withdrawn. Someone asked a pertinent
question about Rosmah's work when she
said she has to forego her hobbies
because she was busy with the rakyat.
Her statement implies that she is a de
facto Prime Minister. There are
Ministers looking for the rakyat in
their perspective areas.
That was not a manipulation of facts.
All other Prime Ministers wives didn't
say they were busy with the nation.
Those were the job of their spouses as
well as the Ministers.
It does not take anyone to fan the
citizen with her statement. Even without
the Youtube or the anti-government
media, her stories spread like a wild
fire; from her university days to her
other personal likings. Why people are
so busy body ? Because she is a second
wife or a wife of a Prime Minister.
Human being are human being. They love
to love and love to hate. They can love
a Satan and hate an angel. It is lucky
that they are stupid and unreasonable.
If everyone is smart they would have
voted BN out.
The NGO and Rosmah should be thankful
because there are people who like her.
The NGO who goes for her support is one
of them. Could it be 95% of the
Malaysians love Rosmah ? It could be.

BRIM AS A NEW
FORM OF SUBSIDY ?
mean to be rude to anyone but I don't have
alternative words to describe Najib's
announcement of BRIM as a new form of
subsidy is another great deception and
insulting. Anything subsidized has a long
term effect but the amount paid by this
scheme is short lived. It amounts to RM50 a
month of extra income. What can RM50 do in a
month ? You divide it by 30 days it is less
than RM2 a day. To a lorry driver it is just
enough for one bungkus of nasi lemak for
twenty cents increase in patrol will push
the price up by at least the same amount.
Most shop pushed the price of each item up
by at least thirty cents. For an
office worker he will have to spend about
RM1.50 more for his meal. Any other day
spending will quickly upset the BRIM. I also
believe BRIM will cause a slight inflation
because the people will not divide the money
into days, rather will do immediate
higher demand there will be price increase,
which may not be obvious to the naked eyes.
A shirt that cost RM20 may be tagged at
RM250 with a discount of between 50% - 75%.
And imitation goods will flood the markets
as original. All that come from the sea will
jump more than 30% costlier. And as the
value of our currency plunged because of
excessive notes the price of import products
get more expensive.
normal subsidy does not project a person as
a giver. It is regarded as the government's
task to curb spiral inflation. It is like a
donation from an anonymous person. It is a
form of service to help the general public.
It does not come under a category of
corruption. Whereas BRIM clearly shows the
giver who paraded himself to the world
without any anonymosity. He demanded
reciprocity. UMNO demand for the repayment
by voting the party. In such a manner it is
a clear corruption.
will follow behind BRIM is the Thank You

telling me that Mahathir is coaching Najib

choice but to command the judiciary, the

said Najib was charmed and hypnotized. It is

The teachers were talking about data entry

imagination ran wild, looking at the vast
amount of data in the database to be
arranged and computed. A single line of
programming error will produce false result
that the educationist would not suspect and
traced. A 40 marks in history entered in one
school does not carry an identical weigh
with the same mark keyed in other school.
I used to tell the teachers to make
difficult things easy to understand and made
the lessons interesting and attractive. I
remember the days when all students were
waiting for Mr So and So to enter the class
for the lovely and interesting lessons. Can
I tell them the same thing today ?
And I remember the days when kids going to
school with chalk and slabs, no text books
and no computers. Not even a homework. They
still can run the countries and became good
administrators. Dr Mahathir lives long
enough to tell about the chalk and slab way
of learning. Good or bad he is one of the
products of the old system.
As I repeatedly said my main concern is with
the late developers who had left the school
and wanting to compensate for the lost
wasted days of their schooling. Their
chances were totally closed by the PBS.
There is a fear that they could become pests

get away with whatever broken promises made. Don't
forget what Najib said,"I am a responsible person. I

Luckily for us the men in the toll said the increase
will be in 2017. But Mahyuddin said something else.
Last night the
enforcement unit said they do not have enough manpower
to go round the country. Talk and talk and talk.
The second way
to make people forget the rising cost of living is to
attack DAP as anti Malay and anti Islam. This seem to be
the biggest bomb for BN. In the meantime the helpless
poor citizens are paying more whether they eat in or
out. Every item sold in the super market has gone up.
Every item in Mamak shop has gone up. Postage price
increase several folds. The talk about cheap houses
remain a talk.

is the rapid increase in currencies without proportional
increase in productivity by Najib's BRIM and increase

projects. We have purchases like a four ringgit item for
eighty ringgit. We have a very lavish spending,
unaccountable payments to goods purchase by a certain
people, gasoline hike, removal of subsidies, hike in TNB
rate, higher insurance premium and other rates. And of
course the greedy Mamak shops.
It is not the
DAP, PAS or Keadilan guys who are paying more, it is
also the die hard UMNO voters and supporters. Ironically
the UMNO guys are happy about it. They worshipped those
who caste lies upon them.

PEOPLE I DISLIKE MUCH

drivers and the great motor cyclists.
drivers are greedy lot of people. The fare from a bus
station to my home about 3 to 4 miles away is about
RM15. It would go up RM25 at dawn. My staffs were
charged RM15 each to go to the same distant. When they
are on the road you can expect anything. Just be careful
when you see a taxi in front of you.
Women are dare
devil drivers. They run the red light, overtake on all
sides without prior notice and signal, and irritate you
at the round about. Today I came across one whose car
stalled in the middle of the main road. What she did was
staying in her car with the hazard light blinking. Other
cars were waiting in queue unsuspecting of what the lady
was doing. I figure she was waiting for her husband or
boyfriend to come and rescue her. Other sensible human
would come out of the car and wave for help.
The motor cyclists

tidak kekal, siapakah yang membohongi rakyat ? Tak

Hearing words of
the Minister, you may think the whole system is rosy. I
have said enough about PBS and touched a little on
I would like to
repeat the present system of technical and vocational
education is towards the preparation of manpower. Both
PBS and vocational colleges are ignoring the mediocre
and the low achievers. The low achievers are those
without interest in the current academic subjects.
vocational colleges end up with a diploma many applied
and they would have to be interviewed for the entry.
What the public is
not aware is their sons may not be allowed to continue
for the diploma after the two year course if they do not
perform well. The dropouts will be without any
certificate at all.
I already heard
from a parent about his son who leave a college without
certificate. That made me wonder how that could happen.
As for the
vocational colleges to award some form of certificate
after year two it must be recognized by a certain body.
MLVK cert can only be issued with the required standard
set, which were rejected and thrown away by the system.
Your son who got
into the college may be a victim.

for the very low achievers to either waste their time in
school or stay away from schools. The parents may not

ability would be sent to private colleges overseas.
My worry began
when our kampong is no longer a safe place and the
number of bag snatchers are on the raise.

sounds good. The nearest to my home is in Jitra. I doubt
whether there is a bus that can take me to the college
and I wonder whether they have a culinary program to
offer. And not all form of education are vocation in
nature. Some are interested in language, arts and
philosophy. Others in arts and law. Hence the rhetoric
on life long education is only a political jargon.
the internet technology provides all sort of knowledge
and a lot are given free. One can hear a live lecture
from universities overseas. All we need is the
understanding of English or Spanish. Of course there are
also available in other languages.
The advantage of
web learning is we can stay at home and don't need to
travel. But the learner need to have a certain level of
understanding especially on something abstract.
Outside our home
there is always a free religious education in the nearby
mosques, churches and temples. It educates us to be a
better and more responsible person, about God and death.
college as a place of life long education is nice to
talk and hear but could turn out to be a hell once you
decide to enroll in your desired program. I have a
desire to learn on hydraulic and soon I will inquire
about the course.
But the college
itself is useful. It helps the unemployed youth to
acquire skills and knowledge in their respective
disciplines. Claiming it to serve the community for the
whole life education is too exaggerated and a jargon to
draw favorable voters.
A degree does not
guarantee a wise and learned man. Informal learning that
provide real experience can make a person smarter,
wiser, and able to solve intricate problems. Even skill
acquisition can be obtained with apprenticeships. These
people without certificates or degrees are serving the
engineers and doctors repairing vehicles and other
equipments. A mee seller earned four time more than a
head of department.
They wouldn't be
bothered with college community and universities. The
most vital to them is the knowing how to add and
multiply. Their errors in adding always benefit them
than the customers.

pushing aside what were archaic.
EMPTYING MY MIND
I don't want to
remember the past. It can either made me happy or sad.
It was all about mankind and what's in their hearts and
mind. Many of those with me had passed away, many were
younger than me. I even hardly recalled their names.
This evening I
met my old teacher, Abdul Razak Botok, who was my school
counselor, at the jogging track. He attended the recent
re-union of the old boys on the 2nd of February 2014. He
was a popular teacher among the students for he had a
very effective way to motivate the lazy students.
In the course
of our discussions I told him that what had been built
was buried and never to revive anymore. In the late
1990's after the Najib's visit we became a bench marking
school. But winning at one award a year started in the
late '80s. We won championship in hostel competition,
landscaping championship organized by the City Board and
several championships at the National level.
Razak and a few of his friends were invited to Sarawak
and other states to talk about building excellent
school. I did not build the school but my teachers did.
I only applied a slight touch of my former Principal, Mr
Long Eng Hwa of Kiet Hwa Secondary School in driving the
students to study, the touch of Dr Abdul Syukur with
building a school with a character and the spiritual
battle cry of Japanese form of Banzi. And finally of
Datuk Haji Ahmad on the utmost welfare of the students.
landscaping was excellent, I would say, molded by a
teacher, Abdul Rahman Zakaria, and his team who build up
arches and resting places, planting trees and flowers.
Razak turned the toilets into a really beautiful rest
esteem among the students was to create pride in them.
The competition for beautiful classes and hostel rooms
were very stiff. Winners and non-winners get the reward
of weekly outings. The classes and the school compound
must be at a certain standard at any time. The conducive
environment was followed by the loud battle cry of 'We
got to be number ONE'. The cry must shattered the world.
We did not have
a speech day but an open day with full of colors. The
hostel and workshops were opened to the visitors while
the students were working on their projects. The could
sell their products on that day. There was the prize
giving ceremony in the hall. The stage show and other
entertainment would start just after the prize giving.
The VIP would visit the exhibitions and watch the stage
show in the field. There were the sale of food that
weren't enough for a few thousands visitors of school
children coming from all over the state. The Open Day
was to be one day but the teachers requested for a two
day extension. Every year we had had a two day of
of the self esteem turned the low achievers into
successful students with better public examination
importance to both skill attainment and the academic
exam results. There was no additional mathematics in our
curriculum but we introduce it outside our school time
table for those who want to learn. We have Art and Craft
for the Building and Constructions to open a way for the
bright student to become an architect. We introduced
Basic Economy for the Commerce students to enable them
to enter Malaysian Northern University. All were done on
my teachers initiatives.
We did not
encourage our students to go to tuition. I did not say
or force anyone to run an extra classes. But the
teachers were fighting to find slots for their subjects.
The classes went on until a month before an examination
where we have what we called Flexi Classes. Teachers
come following the flexi time. The students will start
classes from 8am to 10 pm with time to rest. The last
day of the flexi class was a week before the final exam.
There were always a big feast that began from the early
morning when teachers did the cooking. We had sponsors
from parents and other people, of meat, fish, rice and
many more. At night parents would bring the whole family
for the feast. I would give my last talk and advices
while the parents were eating and watching a big screen
movies. Young children enjoyed the ice creams and the
balloons. It was really a grand occasion.
Parents came to
see to thank about their lazy and problem children who
changed a great deal. They were very please and happy. I
told them that it was not me who change their children.
It was the teachers. One of them was Abdul Razak
Abdullah, a dakwah teacher, who would voluntarily tamed
the hard-core students.
At the jogging
track cikgu Razak echoed our mission. Our mission was to
mold the bad into good, the good into better, those who
hate learning into those who want to learn. A success is
not to obtain all As but to improve the status to a
higher level. Turning an E to a C was good enough. That
we did and that we attained.

attended a meeting in our school, came to look for me
and with great jubilant and excitement said "Abdul

maintenance was under a contract worker, a lady by the
name of Maryam. I called her Kak Yam though she was half
my age. She took care of three toilets. I was so pleased
her that I wanted her to take a plane to Kuala Lumpur
with another worker as a reward. She never sat her foot
on the plane before. And the blue-collar workers who
took care of the landscaping were also rewarded. Where
did I get the money ? I had entertainment allowances
which were used to entertained my school workers if I
did not have visitors.
I believe in
vocational education and training, not all together in
the system itself but for the general benefit of a
peaceful society. I want those who have no interest in
academic subjects and in schooling to get themselves
into training and skills. If no place is provided for
them the country will later be filled with criminals and
bad hats without any ability to make a living.

WHERE ARE THE CHEAP HOMES ?
Yesterday I saw a banner advertising a home
costing RM300K. 300K is much less than 600K
or 800K. A house selling at between 300K -
900K is considered a standard home on a
standard price. Before the GE13 BN announced
of cheap and affordable homes of less than
50K. After the election things went very
quiet. Nothing is heard anymore except for
the poster of the 300K affordable abode for
CAMPAIGN OF HATE
Opposition party is not allowed to run
any campaign of hate. But BN is allowed
to do it every day. Almost in every news
reading BN calls the public to hate the
opposition leaders and the party. Anwar
and Teresa have received the most and
the hardest. BN members have been
inciting the people against them. Many
people voted for opposition because they
could no longer stand the vicious mouth
of BN supporters parading by the
national media days and nights.
Teresa insulted the Malays in her video

Malay. Criticizing NFC is not
criticizing UMNO. The Malays should not
be dragged blindly like the buffaloes.

lavishness of minister's wives using

truth. To call a thief 'a thief' is not
an insult nor a crime. There is nothing
wrong to call the people to reject and
hate a thief.
To get into a PHD program in the

FATHER LIKE SON ?
Mukhriz is the
opposite of Najib. Both are opposite of their fathers.
Mahathir should be proud of his Menteri Besar's son whom
I would give him a thumb up as a simple and humble man.
I believe he is a pious person.
He could easily
capture the hearts of the Muslim Malays with his
religious activities. When I saw him at the Maulud's
festival recently I noticed that he humbled
himself to God and saw him as a normal man, whom we
could always respect.
Putrajaya and UMNO
seemed not to like him for their own reason. I think
because they dislike Mahathir, who had criticized Najib
poor administration .
Not all genetic
traits would pass from the father to the son, despite
the scientific findings. Intervening variables could
very much influence and shape new behaviors. I am too
convinced of the impact of Rosmah on Najib which is
extremely great. Mukhriz as a boarding MRSM student
picked up his adorable attitudes from the school itself.
The hostel discipline was tight. By 5 am everybody must
be ready for Subuh prayer. The training was harsh and
I saw Bush the son
is less smart than Bush the father. Hishamuddin has not
even half of his father's class. Guan Eng shows the
trait of Kit Siang. I don't smoke but my kids do. My
kids dismissed my political beliefs as nonsense.
We cannot equate
the sons to the fathers in Malaysian politics. And we
should never hope the sons will follow the footstep of
the father. And we should not think that there are no
better and smarter people in this country to rule the
nation other than the Minister's sons.
mind still separate the people into peasant and the
ruling class. So we chose the leaders from the
aristocrat families, ignoring our ability in running a
country. There are million more people who are smarter
than Hishamuddin, Najib, Guan Eng or Mukhriz.
Among the UMNO
Ministers and Chief Ministers there are evils and
angels. Nobody can hide himself behind the fiery
rhetoric or hypocrisy. People do no assess the
level of intelligence by their qualifications but what
they say and do. Neither would we tell the son's
characters by their fathers.
Mukhriz is doing good and I hope he will be himself for
the remaining of his political years, a long more years.

IS GOING TO SLAP ZAHID HAMIDI ?
is an offer of a 10K reward for anyone who slap Zahid
Hamidi. This man must be serious. What is 10K to a large
number of people. Zahid said the offer is not a threat
because it is not pertaining to murder. Will there be
more offer with a bigger reward for slapping Rosmah,
Najib or Ghani Patail ? If Ghani Patail remain to stay
silent about it, it means he also agree such kind of a
display is legal.
slapping Teresa is 1.2K. Offer for slapping Zahid is
10K. We have to wait for the offer to make public either
using a blog or an opposition media, or there may be
posters stuck on trees and walls.
It is up to you
to judge Zahid. The minister is not judged and heard
within our border. When I was in China a member of our
tour group criticized Communism and our China tour
leader questioned our integrity, discrimination and more
that left the Malaysian speechless. When I was in USA, a
bus driver asked me about Anwar Ibrahim. When I was in a
restaurant in London, a worker approached me saying
Malaysia was not an Islamic nation. When you can
convince a Japanese leader to reject Anwar Ibrahim, you
can't convince all other of Japanese citizens.
If I were to go
abroad and someone were to ask me about Zahid Hamidi, he
would put me in great difficulty. I had defended
Mahathir before though I didn't like him. Surely I would
not degrade him in front of any foreigner. I would have
to bear a great shame.
As a Malay, I
have been fired with questions pertaining to policies
that I could not answer. I had been a victim, as if I
was involved in the making of the policy. I could only
answer one question that I paid for my university
education, not free.
sometime ago and somewhere, public is not allowed to
mention the word ROSMAH. Why, was mentioning the name
amounting to a threat to take her life ? You may ask me
for the reason I like to mention her name. Many people
adored and like her. So they mention her name. I saw her
different in every aspect from all other Prime
Minister's wife. And she is a hit. So I mention her
So are UMNO
ministers who like to mention Anwar's name because he is
like Chua Soi Lek.
The world heard
Zahid and they heard Lim Kit Siang. It is up to them to
make judgment. People have been telling me that Lim is a
Chinese and I should support the Malays. Why not they
discussed the truth of the matter without referring to
the ethnic factor ?
When a person
becomes a minister he is a minister of all because he is
paid by all. If anyone just want to be a minister of
UMNO members then do not collect any form of tax from
the non-UMNO members.
As a man, we
must have something. If we don't have religion, God,
shame or morality we must have at least a conscience. If
we don't even have a conscience than any other man can
call us anything at all as they think fit.

TAIB MAHMUD HAS SOMETHING
I feel very relief
to know that Taib Mahmud has a conscience. I concluded
he is a man. It takes a man with a conscience to release
his post. A crazy man intoxicated with power won't budge
an inch under any form of pressure and continue to be
adamant, defending himself against ant criminal or
The rest of his
time he should go and visit the natives and see their
plight, their children's education, their economy and
their hardship. Bush went soul searching to see how much
damage he had done to the people.I believe he will
discover that many poor people are happy with living,
and life is fulfilling, as compared to a wealthy person
like him. In no time leading a life of a normal man and
doing some good work in the community, providing part of
his wealth to the needy, I am sure he will feel happy,
at peace and very tranquil. He has all the time to
repent in cases of his wrong doings. The people whom he
have helped will pray for his longevity and happiness.
Taib could have
whispered to his successor about the evil of Putrajaya,
and how Sarawak has help to put BN in power and what he
got back. Any smart and awaken Sarawakian would realize
the game of the government in Kuala Lumpur.
In Sarawak the

slapping Teresa ?
Why offer an award
when the members of the NGO themselves can go and slap
Teresa ? And Sabree Chik himself could sue Teresa
instead of calling the police to take a stern action on
her. All what we hear from those mouths were Teresa Kok
insult the Malaysian leaderships.
As Najib was
talking about the up and down of prices Teresa was
talking about the bad years that crashed our nation. I
too had observed that 2013 was a year of deception and
2014 as a year of payment. The voters fell to the
cheating and lying 'People come first...' Life will be
better if BN win GE13. At that time I already knew of
the consequences the people will suffer from the
spendthrift of Najib on the GE alone, not to mention his
spending in buying popularity abroad. People will have
to pay for their extravagant and reckless wastage.
BN had been
making agreements that benefit the contractors and
concessionaries. Anyone in the right kind of mind would
not tolerate this. Teresa didn't divulge every evil deed
of the government yet. They hide corruption behind the
law, yet it could be seen through the flourish drug
trade and the foreigners illegally running business in
this country. The kampong Malays fared the worst as
their land were bought cheaply for commercial purposes.

A COUNTRY AND MANAGING A SCHOOL
It might be too
much to assume that a Minister would find it tough to
run a school than running a country. In school there are
head of departments, senior subject teachers, form
teachers, teachers in charge of sports, co-curriculum,
landscaping, corporative, discipline, students, hostels
and parents. In addition there are finance and accounts
the school administrators must look into. The Principal
is both accountable and responsible for all happenings,
events and expenditures.
what is the work of a Minister ? What does he do
everyday in his office ? I don't know their tasks
really. But I think their first job is know what is
happening in the country under the portfolio. He
consults the people under him and seek information on
the current situations and conditions. He has to set a
goal and a vision to achieve either by himself or
request his subordinated to draw the whole plan for him.
He decides a policy and put to cabinet for
He can avoid the
work and left to his people to run the show, and at the
same time he would be thinking how to retain power, how
to corrupt the voters, what to lie and how to deceive
them. A few might be thinking how to escape with million
of ringgit without being traced.
Like a school
administrator a Minister can be autocratic, democratic
or laissez faire. A Minister can be understanding and
open minded but his advisor may not and would push him
to run a policy under any circumstances.
As far as the
job is concern a Minister should not brag that he
is looking after a country and the rest don't do vital

SABOTAGE OR TERMINATION ?
The furor on the
'sacking' of PKNS workers seem to be aligned with Kelang
By-Election. Most of us really don't know what is really
happening other than what we see on the TV and read in
Khalid claimed it
was not sacking but the termination of a contract. Even
on this basis we need to scrutinize the terms and the
documents of the contract. I doubt there is a proper
document kept knowing how the Malays operate an
organization. They always take thing for granted and
doing work in a 'cin-cai' way. Could it be the contracts
made during BN era. If there is a proper document of
contract, the termination method should follow a proper
procedures. Workers should be informed of the
termination date at least a month before.
There is also a
possibility of sabotage by the opposition in Selangor.
The pro-BN group were merely carrying out their plan to
tarnish Pakatan Rakyat by taking such actions without
any prior consultation of the state administrators. The
timing is proper near the election time.
If it is due to the
pure decision to simply sack those unwanted workers it
is just like the rule of The Right to Hire and Fire, as
practiced in the United States. In USA an employer can
just fire any of his workers at any time without any
reason given. This is American Democracy.
A good administrator
may not be a good politician. A good politician may not
be a good administrator. But anyone can be cruel and
vicious, inconsiderate and inhumane. He may wear a
Pakatan or BN's hat.
Ending a person's
job happened everywhere including in Trengganu when BN
took over from PAS. Whichever side fired a shot, it is
not good for humanity. Just think what if you are sacked
and becoming unemployed.
On the other hand
workers must be responsible and work hard to enhance the
growth of the company and organization, do not play
truant and give problem to the employer and the
organization. With lack of performance and productivity
he would be seen as useless and should be kicked out.
I saw shouting and
yelling of people in the TV, condemning the 'sacking'
with fiery words like a roaring lion.
There is an
industrial court to go about. Why all the yelling when
cases could be brought to the court ? They won't be seen
as champions but as a great fool.

I loath to hear
the new people condemning and speak lowly of the past
system, implying the product of the past are useless.

I won't give a
damn to such an attitude and won't donate even a single
cent to the new administrator. He can wait for the
products of the new system to ask for donation.
The old boys of

education. But the old system made men out of these low

The students who reside at the hostels can always occupy

my opinion there is no need for the college to seek any
donation for the mosque anymore.
colleges can always generate their own funds by seeking
internal monthly donation of RM10 a month. A school of

SUPPORTING HAM SHOPS
New hams might not
know how hard we went through to set up radio stations
in the past. There weren't ham shops in Malaysia,
Indonesia or Thailand like it is today. Becoming a ham
in 70's was considered late yet we had to strive looking
for equipments, co-axial plugs and cables.
Whenever there was
a new ham the old timers were ever ready to lend support
and material help, by giving the coaxial plugs and
cables free of charge. I remember Eshee provided me with
coaxial cables and others with the co-ax plugs. We would

Buying a new rig
cost a fortune. Somehow someone brought new rigs home
from overseas. Second hand transceivers were sold to the
newcomers at the average price of RM800.
Even in the last
decade hams had to travel to Singapore, looking for rigs
at Sim Lim Tower. The Northerners traveled to Thailand.
Life has changed
when ham shops began to bloom in the country. All we
need to do is to visit the web page, made a few phone
calls, deposit the payment and in no time the equipment
ordered will reach our doorsteps.
If you have lived
in the two different world than you would know how
blessed we are with the ham shops set up to help the
Malaysian amateurs. You pay a little more but you have
the comfort of staying at home without much hassle.
So support the
local ham shops.

How bad is Teresa
Kok's video ? The video tells nothing but the truth,
criticizing the dark side of BN's rule. It is about
inefficiency and what the people feel. Is it good or bad
? Sabri said it was not proper for such a video to be
made for the Chinese New Year. The Chinese will ask who
is Sabree to decide what and what should be said during
the New Year.
How bad is the
video ? It is bad. First thing the quality is excellent.
Secondly millions of people just love it.
It is as bad as
what UMNO says about Anwar, DAP, PAS and Nik Aziz. To
say that Nik Aziz worshipped idols and in his religious
school there are full of idols is bad. It is as bad as
UMNO says PAS is teaching a deviant Islam. It is as bad
as saying God is punishing those who do not vote for
UMNO by sending them floods.
You see, I can
call you an idiot, but you can't call me any.
Sabree-Anwar's debate the former attacked Anwar's
personality rather than debating on the topical issues.
Attacking and degrading the opposition leaders in public
using public media is legal and considered normal. Only
UMNO can do it.
The satire is very
strong but very true. But even without the clip, the
masses already discussed wastage and lavishness by
Rosmah. 100 out of 100 people I talked to have identical
perception on the First Lady.
How to avoid the
gossip and criticism ? Just do the right thing; be more
efficient, think rightly, avoid lavishness and wastage
using public funds.
You see, any right
thinking person will have to wonder about 'no murderer'
in the death of Altantuya, nobody took the billion of
the PKZ when the money went missing, Ghani Patail does
not sue Mat Zain, and many more folly stuffs. Things
simply do not make sense. So they talk.
And we can't force
people to respect us. People might respects gentlemen
but not fools. Fools are not made by others on us. We
made fools of ourselves, mainly by our speech which may
be arrogant and pompous, lack of depth in analyzing
issues, twisting statements and even behave like one. A
respect has to be earned.
Taking Teresa to
court and winning the case would not present UMNO with
honor comparing with the lost of our Pulau Batu Puteh to
Singapore. It would be a kind of a Kampong Champion. And
Sabree didn't talk about Perkasa threatening May 13 at
all, which is more dangerous for the safety of the
people and to the peace of this nation.
KAJANG - BETWEEN ANWAR AND ROSMAH
What do I know about Kajang, almost 300
miles away from Lorong Bayu. While I was
nursing my wife I heard someone was
discrediting Anwar Ibrahim as a man who put
his own interest before anything else. He
was lashed and bashed left and right. One
hawker with Kedah-Penang slang said "Anwar
is an outsider. Why should an outsider
contest in a place outside Penang...'
Anwar was bad enough. PKR did not do
anything to help the people of Kajang. The
public is told no UMNO politicians have any
self-interest. Najib would say 'I don't want
to be a PM. But Mahathir put me here.' He
never spend a single penny on promoting
himself or his wife. He never fought hard to
retain his post and power.
is at all time better then Anwar. She never
spend public money for her comfort. She
traveled on the private jet on a
working trip, negotiating for the
government. Of course Najib is perfect. He
tried hard to stop the rising cost of
living. All the rise are due to the greedy
Middlemen who are anti government. "I am a
responsible person. That's why I raise
petrol price, permitted TNB to increase more
profit. I listen to the cry of the poor....'
has to spend more on Kajang, probably triple
the amount in Sungai Limau, to make people
forget of the high cost of living, about his
policy that push for spiral inflation, to
convince the people how good his wife is.
And he will be putting another Baju Kurung
wearing a Japanese sleepers to walk with the
people. He will do anything. He will do
anything for the people 'Rakyat didahulukan'.
is famous for Sate. Mark my words Rosmah
will go to the Sate stall. And BN will spend
a few thousand ringgit for the sate, to feed
the BN campers and those who want free food.
said Kajang is a contest of an honor. We all
know that Anwar has no honor. Mahathir
totally dismissed him as Anwar is unfit
because he was a sex maniac. For a honorless
man to lose an election there isn't any
shame at all. For BN to lose one will have
to look hard where the honor of Najib and
knows this and Najib knows this as well. And
this is the opportune time to make money,
just to ensure Najib of his victory. Didn't
he do well in Kuantan despite the Lynas
is the underdog. BN will not allow to be
beaten again a second time behind Sungai
Limau, because if it is, it spells a sure
demise of UMNO in the next GE, no matter
what UMNO does.
the battle is on the do or die basis.
Anything goes. It is not the fight between
an immoral Anwar and a BN candidate but it
is between Anwar and the glossy First Lady.

mankind. There are too many of them. Yesterday the Mamak

their common husband at the center. Being good to each
other may not be a strange thing to many but they look
like a twin; both are of the same size and height,

Last night I
saw Mahyuddin at a wet market. He saw the price of
mackerel was tagged at RM16 per kilogram, said nothing
and just continued his so-called price checking.
Mackerel was RM4 - RM5 a kilo.

happenings because it is the sign that the world will

UNTUK APA DAN SIAPA ?
penyakit kita ialah, kita gemar membuat perbadingan dan
kemudian kita mendesak supaya dasar kita menyerupai apa
yang dilihat dari tempat lain dan orang lain. Salah satu
sebab pertelingkahan rumah tangga adalah dari akibat
perbandingan dan mahu meniru segala cara hidup and
perolehan jiran sebelah rumah, sedangkan tahap ekonomi
tidak sama dan serata.
Negara yang kaya
raya dengan sumber alam, tanah tanih yang subur dan
penduduknya tidak ramai tidak semestinya mengukir dasar
pendidikan sekolah sepertimana dunia lain.
Asas tujuan hidup
adalah untuk manusia bagi duniawi, untuk Tuhan bagi
ukhrawi. Untuk Tuhan itu sangat membantu manusia di
dalam kehidupan sosial, membina nilai dan moral yang
membawa kepada keamanan, persafahaman dan kerjasama. Dan
untuk dunia itu pula adalah bertujuan membawa kebahagian
dan kepuasan jiwa serta ketenangan hidup. Kita bukan
bekerja untuk membina satu tugu emas yang besar dan
cantik, bukan berkorban untuk menghasilkan kenderaan
angkasa lepas yang boleh mencecah alam semesta yang
lain. Kalau itulah semuanya, maka kita akan lupakan
bukanlah untuk menghasilkan teknologi semata-mata, atau
untuk mengharumkan nama negara semata-mata. Yang sama
penting ialah kita mahu mewujudkan masyarakat yang
bertangungjawab, bertolak ansur, bekerjasama, mahu
keadaan dan suasana yang aman tenteram di mana kita
boleh tidur tanpa mengunci pintu dan tingkap, dan
kehidupan yang sejahtera.
kita mengukir sesuatu dasar, janganlah kita melihat dari
satu sudut sahaja. Pernah dalam KBSM satu masa dahulu
dimana semua pelajar sejarah dimestikan menulis sejarah
kaum keluarga mereka. Pada saya pada masa itu pembuat
dasarnya adalah seorang yang hanya memikirkan diri
sendiri, melihat semua orang sepertimana kaum
keluarganya, tidak berfikir tantang anak-anak di luar
nikah, yang bapanya dalam penjara dan mereka yang
kehidupan dalam keadaan musibah.
Hari ini pembuat
dasar pelajaran adalah terdiri dari kumpulan manusia
jenis itu, yang hanya memikirkan dari satu sudut sahaja,
yang tidak perihatin terhadap mereka yang miskin dan
lemah, kurang berminat dan sukar memahami sifir dan
angka. Mereka tidak fikir tentang lepasan sekolah yang
berkeinginan memperbaiki diri setelah muncul kesedaran.
Kata-kata liar tentang latihan dan keperluan pendidikan
itu semata-mata untuk sumber manusia adalah amat sedih
Tidak payah tunggu
30 tahu lagi untuk melihat Malaysia dipenuhi dengan
kekotoran dan kekeliruan. Hari ini sudah heboh tentang
orang Melayu memeluk agama Keristian, membuat video
lucah, perkongsian seks percuma dan keruntuhan akhlak
yang semakin serius. Nanti kos sosial negara akan jauh
lebih tinggi dari kos ekonomi bagi melahirkan manusia
yang bertanggungjawab dan sejahtera.
Anda mungkin akan
berkata sistem pendidikan Amerika Syarikat adalah sistem
yang baik dan berjaya kerana anda pandang kepada
perkembangan teknologi yang pesat dan maju. Tapi anda
mungkin tidak tahu sejak dari 1980'an lagi rakyat
Amerika sudah mengalami tanggungan ekonomi yang teruk.
Pengangguran sudahpun ramai. Semakin sehari ia menjadi
semakin tenat, dimana kedai-kedai mulai bertukar milik

GOOD DEEDS OF OUR GOVERNMENT
anything good done by the government to the people ?
One of the
praiseworthy deeds of our government is the medicare. I
don't remember since when patients are not charged or
pay the token sum of a few ringgit for the medicines and
treatment. You want to know the price you try the
private hospital. If you are warded for two days you may
have to pay more than RM3000. The government is spending
enormous sum to give the service to the people.
still have the pension scheme. Retired government
servants can still survive until the end of their days.
And they are subject to free medical treatment. When the
minimum pension was raised to RM700 it gave life to
those who received less than RM350 - RM500. This would
be considered a very humane endeavor.
working with the government has the EFP scheme for the
future of the employees. Both the employers and the
government contribute to the welfare and the future of
individual workers. People can still survive after
leaving their jobs at the old age.
free. Again to know the price is to go to private
schools, some of which are charging RM60K for a
semester. A big budget has always been set for
education. School buildings are like universities.
Teachers' salary is one of the highest in Asia. Students
were provided with free notebooks. The immense
expenditure were announced at every budget speech.
Aren't all those
good work not known by the public ? Why then half of the
population are still unhappy with the government ?
People tend to
look at the good and evil side. Claiming the good work
is jeered for it is the duty and the responsibility of
any government to serve the people and provide the best
for the welfare of the populace. The people gave the
mandate to rule and pay taxes to ensure of excellent
services to the public.
The money paid
was stolen, not by the government but by some people
running the government and the people in the government.
PERWAJA had to close down. PKZ losing billions.
NFC failed to run the cow project. Mahathir disguised
the stealing under the guise of major projects. Najib
spent for popularity hunt and to maintain his power.
Wastage was colossal. What all other Prime Minister's
didn't do, Najib did it; the FLOM and the use of private
jets. Rosmah's extravaganza excels Emelda Marcos.
development is to please and enrich the greedy people.
Hill tops and agriculture land were raped. Water
cathment areas gave way to expensive bungalows and
condos. So much so people had to seek water from the
rivers which are polluted with all sorts of dirt. Now
they claimed the pig's heads and excretions polluted the
river water. The agriculture land were bought at RM3 per
square foot and sold to business communities at RM15 to
RM25. Mahathir defended his scheme saying 'We can always
import foodstuffs' and he recently said development does
not benefit Malaysia.
immigrants, foreigners residing and doing businesses in
this country, criminal activities are all related to
corruptions. People have been accusing the police to be
involved in crimes and under ground activities, which
are now proven to be true. Even top politicians were
seen to rub shoulders with the big time gangsters.
The people who
were expected to help and be the savior of Malaysian
people are now becoming arrogant, fanning racial hatred,
twisting their tongues and corrupting the public for
votes. They became swagger like Shahrizat and Ahmad

mother with 8 grown up children recently
felt sick and warded in a private hospital.
It was the daughter in law who took her for
the treatment. It is our Malaysian tradition
for someone to stay with the parent at the
hospital though it is not necessary. The
daughter usually stays. As I learned
everyone was pushing the responsibility
either to look after the mother or to talk
about the medical fee. But at least they
came to see their mother at the ward.
up and working children who work away from
home are always busy. A big majority do not
have time or too busy to look after their
parents. Some didn't even care to come home
at all. One didn't come back even for the
funeral but sending check through someone
for the expenditure.
often than not the children will have
meeting among themselves to decide who would
pay for the maid and how much. Then they
will employ a maid to take care of their
lone mother or father.
like these also happen outside Malaysia. And
we heard stories about the maids were named
to get the property and the savings. It is
during this time the family members would
contest for the inheritance.

not favor the unfilial. There will be no 'barakah'

don't have to believe me. You can observe
your surroundings, and see how your friends

old is not merely getting wrinkles and
facial changes, but also different
perceptions and treatments from younger
generations. Old people are associated with
senility, sickness, filthy and helplessness.
It is tasteless for the children which they
abhorred, and want to impose theirs on.
elderly are not afraid of being old or sick
or death but they are worried their kids
will die and get sick first before them. As

EVERYONE IS A MILLIONAIRE
In Norway everyone
is now a millionaire. Thanks to the oil that is not
being monopolized by only a handful of people. The
philosophical question is will the nation come to a
standstill, and nobody wants to go to work anymore ?
In a civil society
work will go on as usual. The garbage collector will
still be doing his work as much as the doctor will
operate his patients. The sense, conception and the
sentimental feeling might change to a certain extent.
Workers work not because of the money but because of the
pride and the fulfilling that embrace them. Each will
want to the best he could attain.
But those who are
lazy will continue to stay idle and those who employ
maids will be finding foreign maids. Some of the local
maids will continue to give the service for the love of
the family they work under.
How about the
thieves and robbers ? The numbers will be reduced
drastically but may not be absolute because a few will
regard stealing as fun and to maintain their skills.
Even in our society
the rich and the wealthy sent their kids to school to
get education, knowledge, good values and morality. Jobs
to them would be some kind of pleasure, to have a good
feeling at the end of the good work done.
There might be some
structural change here and there as the preferences
might shift to a new desire. Since everyone is
affordable to buy what they want, some might want to
change the mode of their movements and entertainments.
Yet even if everyone buys car, not all will travel to
work by their cars. Many will still prefer public
transportation to avoid congestions.
The world must not
get worried if everyone becomes a millionaire.

MOUTH, THE BRAIN AND THE HEART
The utterance, the
speech, the statement and whatever come from the mouth
would either crystallize from the mind, emotion, the
interaction of both or from sub-consciousness. I always
hear football supporters predicting scores in favor of
their team. This does not come from their mind, rather
from their heart. They want it that way, hence followed
by their rosy predictions. It is the quick way of making
the minds are based on the factual past events and
factual knowledge, more on probability than on
certainty. Base on the track records and the past
successes our soccer team may win. The probability is
high but not with absolute certainty.
When somebody says
something we must first examine the authenticity and the
validity of his words. The authority is not a book, a
sage, a PHD holder, a great politician or a judge. The
authority is the truth which is a body of solid and real
data. Everyday we are hearing statements from every
source. Most were born from the sentiments.
We expect people
of education with degrees and PHDs to be more rational
and not to issue wild statements, especially of the
future without holding to any data at all whatsoever.
You can create
things out of nothing and make people really believe in
it. It can still come from your mind from the
compartment of imagination. Then we give a touch of a
character that follows the command of our sentiment, to
make it a demon or a hero, a valiant or a villain.
It's our mouth
that determine the degree of civility, not our wealth
and social status.

ABOUT BEING A
Mahathir are ridiculing Anwar as a fool. So Anwar is a
fool. How about Najib and Mahathir ? Mahathir is the
greatest fool when he is responsible for selling the
Malay land away by his stupid policy. And he is more
fool to criticize Najib, a PM of his choice. And
when two of candidates of his choice did not win the
last GE13. How could PERKASA's head, the champion of the
Malays, were rejected even by his own race ? Are they
not fools ? As for Najib you can make your own judgment.
twisters and flip-floper is an honorable man. We, the
pariah group, unknown to the world can be anything, from
an idiot to a moron. For an ex-PM, ex-Presidents, PM and
Presidents, to portray their foolishness, it is a great
shame. What worth the status and wealth to be despised
by millions, or booed by the crowds, witnessed by a
great masses of people ?
When fools are
fooling the kampong and uneducated Malays it is a
regrettable tragedy. That's why PERKASA came into
existence, indicating the Malays were being fooled so
much that they are becoming weaker and weaker each day.
All are the making of the UMNO. They ran stupid policies
that brought disaster to the Malays.
How about them
being made tools and conned by con men ? They are being
dignified without salaries and payment, called as
Presidents and Chairmen, name as a project developer but
the money didn't go to them ? Those are greater fools. I
know at least 4 fools who were conned but shameful
enough to divulge their bitter experience.
Do you ever
observe that the Mamaks are the most vocal in protesting
against the others ? And the Patail, the Kutty, the
faces on the TVs, the condo-Queen, the ex-PM, the Syed
Mokhtar and many more as you always see on the TVs. It
is nothing wrong for them being more vocal. I am just
saying they are all Mamaks.
Of course we
don't mind to be fools as long as we can grab unlimited
wealth without being charged in court, or being called
immoral as long as we have power, or being criticized as
long as we can use public funds to finance our
lavishness and personal spending.
How many people
call Anwar a fool ? How many people call Najib a fool ?
Let's put it to a vote.

government kicked up the painful cost of living by
several of it's crazy policies the masses began to get
angry. Nay. UMNO can do no wrong. Prices went up because
of the greedy businessmen. Najib organized playful army
to fight against price increase. Ministers were ordered
to go to the ground. Enforcement officers raided
business premises and made surprise checks to wet
markets, sending reports of what they found. They picked
up on kangkong because of the price they saw. Najib was
happy to see at least there was an item that was cheaper
than the day before the raid.
I said it was
a gimmick base on the past track record, that no
government action was effective, because everyone would
say they have to spend more. Even the middlemen who were
accused as the culprits would deny of their obsession
and argued that they have to spend more. They won't be
able to bring down the price at any cost, except they
have to stop executing the foolish policy and abstain
from excessive and lavish spending. Najib has been
spending like nobody's business, as if the well is
without a bottom. As I said before billions were spent
on General election alone. You will be surprise to know
the cost of flags, banners and giant boards with Najib's
face and BN flags.
I was not wrong
at all. It is less than a month Mahyuddin already
admitted the government can't control prizes and

suppliers. Now they tell you that it is up to you.

to pay. And I have been wondering about the type of

comments on the increase of gasoline price. A few months
later they felt the pinch.
Worse will be
coming. Believe me these UMNO people will still be
smiling when they are spit and kicked by the people they
love so much. They love Rosmah.

MYSTERY OF LIFE
I am sure many of
you have experienced some strange phenomena that befell
your life but you just it allow to go because you know
people would dismiss your story. The skeptic would
always say it is just a co-incidence.
For the last one
month there was a sudden urge within me to use GPS and
buying a camcorder. I combed the whole room for my
Garmin but to no avail. I browed through the web pages
to look for the Garmin price. I was frustrated because
it is too expensive.
I searched from
the Apple Store for any offline soft ware, downloaded a
few, but none seem to work well. Dismayed by it I
decided to buy Note 3. The shopkeeper said he could
provide Papago. I found there were several free offline
navigation soft ware for Android. Note 3 was not cheap
either. I had not desire to have more than one smart
phone. I was finally overwhelmed by my own greed and
selfishness. I purchased the Note 3.
Note 3 is too big
and too new to be used as travel companion. Nevertheless
I tried going mobile to test Papago and a few other
downloaded navigators. I could not get Garmin Pilot

which need a credit card. Already I get bored with the
The day before
yesterday by the Grace of God, I saw CoPilot and Sygic
in Apple Store. It was never there, or they were
purchased items. I quickly downloaded and installed
several others including those two.
This is what I
called a mystery. It was never found before but now it
loomed there before my eyes for free again. It was a
miracle. It is God's providence. Sygic is on a 7 day
trial. Co-Pilot is not.
Today I used my
iphone to navigate.
Call it anything,
like co-incidence, but I called it a mystery. At time an
unexpected events took place that enrich our happiness;
things we had wish to happen but did not materialized
till many years later , when we already forget them.
The other day my
wife shed her tears when I said God provides us with
abundance, neighbors and students sent us foods, too
much of them. I was bubbling about giving away to people
non-Muslims who do good will somehow be awarded.
Yesterday my wife
narrated to me about the oldest dialysis patient, about
85, sang several traditional songs in the wards, putting
some joyous atmosphere. The whole room was filled with
laughter. This may not be a mystery. How about the baby
in China who was about to be buried suddenly cried
before the burial ?

the masses, the masses will beast them back. And the

Antarctica; what is so political about the glacier and
the thick ice ?
To him saying

God's chosen ? UMNO leaders as shadows of God ?

look at the price you just need to look at your own

by the seizure of goods from shops which did not display

and the root of all problems.
Problems will never ceased even if there is no
opposition party and no Anwar for the root of all

and asked about their radio. "Rdio JPJ ? ", They
would ask me. "We don't use them."

they called it radio JPJ. The drivers always used the
term 'Tangkap Lori' , signaling to their friends. But it
is seldom heard.

could be heard almost 18 hours a day. Some operate from

puzzling 'eh..' from his mouth.

It looks like
that religions and politics are intermingling and mixing
at a floating convenience. It was puzzling whether the

the bombing of the World Trade Center. Scientists and
engineers had proved that WTC were controlled demolition

people did not attack the church but merely seized the

earlier. Others called Catholics Pagan with tangible and
convincing proofs. It wasn't the Muslims who created the
Pagan image of the church. Even the current Papacy is
still shaken by the sex abuse of the Catholic priests
and dismissed many of them.
You may not
know that it was Henry Kessinger who first started to
tag the Muslims as terrorists to justify the killings
and the taking over of the Palestinians and their land.

'Recalculation' though it continue to give a new
Among all, I
would say Garmin is the best. The new nuvi cost more
than 1K. The older version is now about RM350. The Apple
Store tagged it at $29.99. That would be around RM100.
I am willing
to depart with my 100 ringgit rather than using the free
inferior navigators. But as usual I can't buy it. A bank
required 40K in my account to issue a credit card. 40K
is like 40 million to me.
Even if I
have enough money I will not go for any other except for
Garmin. Below is a clip and a write up taken from the
web page. The price stated is higher than I found from
the Apple Store.
Some people may
like Garmin, others may not. My assessment is based on
my mere experience.
To me GPS is a
new baby which I used once several years ago, treating
it like a toy, enjoying it for a period of time, later
neglected it after getting bored with it.
The free stuffs
were either developed by a team or by a single man. The
team project was always better than by the lone man. But
they are too inferior in all aspects though some come
with the audio interface. Even the professional Tom Tom
and Papago are of no match to Garmin.
At times when I
looked at myself in a mirror I was wondering what the
younger people are thinking of me if they were to know
what I have been up to. "That old man must be preparing
for his death...". I tried to dislodge myself from
software but two days ago a school requested for
modification on the biometric attendance system which
took me more than 20 hours of man work.
They would not
know that I have been jailbreaking and unjailbreaking,
loading and erasing Cydia, strunggling to get the
Installous, for hours and hours.
GPS is not of
much use now to me. But I felt I have missed some
technology I used to play with.
PEOPLE IN POWER
SHIFTING THE BLAME - THE ART OF

Royal blood individuals in China with a long history of
Kings and their wives and consorts.
Presidents and Prime Ministers there were Kings and
Sultans. Don't tell us that with the emergence of the
current government the Kings and the Sultans completely
vanished from the earth surface.
It is about
the power game. People in power decides the history and
the fate of others. They made laws and gave divinity to
the law. They defined history to fit themselves and used
religion for their own benefit. They themselves fear of
their fate if they lost their grips on the power.
What is the
power ? The police. The power of the police is the gun
and all the weapons.
Law is made by
men. A person has the choice to recognize or reject it.
Try to recall a cowboy movie of bad guys who took over a
town and became sheriff. A hero who was quick in a draw
and fast with his gun had no fear and challenged the
sheriffs. His power lies in the gun and his ability.
United States can make a no-fly zone line in foreign
countries because it is militarily strong.
USA and Israel
command the Iran and North Korea not to go nuclear.
Could Iran and North Korea made the same law on Israel
and USA ?
If there is
any law on the issue of the Sultan of Melaka, the law is
made by one party, and the other party has his natural
right to reject it.
people can draw and carve laws as they like; to take
people's land and how much to pay them, to take public
fund to give to anyone they like, to raise taxes as much
as they like.
for fear of reprisal and punishment. Motorbikers do not

Rabits and some other animals are fond of kangkong.
Mixing the vegetable with peanut curry and squid is a
delicacy. But squids are very expensive today. Kangkong
is easily grown at your backyard along the dirty brooks.
There are two reasons why Najib asked the citizens to
thank the government for the cheap price of kangkong.
Firstly, it is to encourage the people to change their
staple food from rice to the easily available plants.
Rice isn't good for health. Millons of Malaysians are
Secondly, we Malaysians are as stupid as animals, as
pigs and rabits. We deserve to be fed with kangkong. The
conception is not a jester. It was thought by UMNO all
the time, that the Malays are stupid. No matter what
they would go for UMNO.
TALKER ASKS OTHERS NOT TO TALK
of our rights is to talk the truth. Our opponents do not
like to hear what we are talking about. The most matured
and courteous way is to present a rebuttal. The third
party will decide who speaks the truth. But that wasn't
the case as I observed in the Facebook and else where.
There was always a short cut challenge; the throwing of
stones and the yelling of insults, telling the other
side not to talk and shut their mouth, and ask the
opponent to leave the country.
Issues on the raising cost were discussed with lavish
expenditure and wastage, wild spending to gain
popularity and the great corruptions using the public
funds. What was raised by the audits did not touch the
purchase of bad goods like the used war planes and the
sub-marine, the wastage involving mega projects.
But the stupid people are blaming
the business communities, not the TNB or PLUS or other
profitable organizations that are raising the selling
prices of their products. Remember, listen to
what is said not to who said it.

avoid the task. Now let us challenge him to work rather
than to talk. Anybody can talk. Just go to the mental
wards you will hear great speeches.
Condoning crimes by
bad Ministers and UMNO supporters cannot be worse than
condoning crimes and corruptions by a religious clerics.
What were the crimes ? Bank Bumi Putera, Perwaja Steel,
PKZ, payments to void projects, misappropriation of
funds, breach of trusts, murder of Altantuya, purchasing
of outdated military hardware, indelible inks, NFC, and
other form of corruption, plundering of Malay Muslim
lands, and privatization to cronies. Wastage,
lavishness, and expenditure for personal enhancement are
associated with sinful acts, selfish and unaccountable.
As an Ustaz and a
school teacher he should know about the plight of the
school children. Here's one headline which he ought to
take interest on
FLESH TRADE : PREGNANT TEEN
MOTHER FOUND WORKING AS PROSTITUTE
The mother is a
prostitute. The Ustaz is enjoying a big money from UMNO.
The youths who found
Christianity as their faiths were the Muslims who were
neglected by the school and the teachers. Did he ever
try to investigate their background, outside activities
and crimes, drug habits and the religious practice ?
Readers can try to
invite him for an evening sermon and pay him RM50 or
RM100, and hear what he would say. One teacher was given
RM400 and commented, "What I and my wife can buy with
this amount ?"
This Ustaz is working
hand in gloves to deceive the people and the Malays,
giving a great impression of the government efforts to
help everyone. TV news announced that food prices came
down, interviewing people for confirmation. Outside the
TV screen people are complaining about mackerel costing
RM19 per kilo. This Ustaz never knew that there are
parents who would bring lunch to their school children
for lack of money. In one case it was the non-Ustaz that
finance the children education.
I commented about an
officer from Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat whose salary
is RM5K giving a monthly allowance of RM150 to one poor
family. What influence has this Ustaz over the Zakat's
money ? Didn't Zakat's money was once used for general
I began to see Ustaz
Qazim like the Korean warlord priest who deceive the
followers and amassed a huge sum of money. The Koreans
was a tycoon and ran gun business too. I would put him
in the same cell as the Catholic priests who were
condemned by many Christians for their sins.
I heard him telling
the Muslims about the use of Allah by the Catholics, but
he was telling the wrong people. He should challenged
the Catholic priest for a public debate like what Ahmed
Deedat did. He didn't have to support the protestors if
he had awaken UMNO to look into the desolate youths in
schools and take the right steps to strengthened and
giving them emotional support.
Instead of continuing
with constant deception, it is better to do the cleaning
up, starting from rejecting bad leaders who support the
family members with the misuse of the public funds and
who were causing the lost of billions and billions of
ringgit. Since the future depends on our schools more
vigorous work should be done to prepare for the more
responsible citizens, good in manners and religion with
responsibility and good work ethics. I can tell
Mahyuddin that he has not done all those. Teachers
simply don't care of the students and take things for
The Malays would not
be better by the prolonged deception.

Iphone 5S and
Samsung Galaxy Note 3, both picked up the same price.
Who actually fix the prices ? For RM2399 the price looks
higher than in the United States. And every time I
looked at the gadgets I was wondering whether they were
clones or real. China is expert in producing the exact
place I could trust for the original is Telco companies
like Celcom, Maxis and Digi. Celcom only sells with
plan. And the plan really cuts throat. I was surprise to
see the plan for Samsung Note 2. The phone price for the
24 months plan was already above the price of the unit
at other outlets. To be a phone vendor and to draw a
plan does not need any talent. You and I can run such a
I am intrigue
by Samsung's over all capability and on the verge of
buying one but for the price. If I need a camera there
is a 13 MP ready to be used. Only if Samsung could
include Garmin GPS the price is worth the money.
I kept on
asking myself what am I going to do with either iPhone 5
or Samsung Galaxy Note 3. My iPhone 4 is still serving
me well. My phone usage is below RM30 a month,
indicating I didn't use it very much.
will be asking what an old people like me would want the
Samsung for ? I would have asked the same question if I
were to see a 67 year old woman bargaining on the Galaxy
Note or iPhone 5.
I think it is
better for me to wait for the price to come down if I
want to fulfill my desire. In the meantime I can
continue to enjoy reading I-Books using my Apple iPhone

Always check the
originality by hook or by crook. You don't pay more than
1.5K for clones. The expert in cloning is China.
If you were
in New Zealand 60 years ago you won't find it much
different from today. The Arrow Town remain as the Old
Arrow Town. A big vast of land is green. The kampong
setup is seen everywhere, serene and peaceful. 67 years
of living in Alor Setar is not a luster of life. They
called it development, I called it hell.
the land sale under the name of development, paid RM3
per square foot and sold to some big Towkey for the
current commercial price. Development followed by
greater number of population. Roads are congested,
traffics are slowing down, crimes are climbing, the air
and rivers pollute.
When the town
turned into the city, rates increased. The people have
to bear the burden. The social cost of development is
tragic was the Malays in Kuala Kedah who became poorer
and poorer. I remembered well when Khir Johari
introduced and license trawler fishing. UMNO enjoyed the
award. Trawlers were operated by the big Towkeys and the
UMNO 's big gun. In the brawl the poor fishermen went
down. Today many became workers and many are drug

during the Sungai Limau. Only if you do a little
traveling around the world you can assess the
relationship between progress and development.
