LET'S PREPARE TO DIE
I never compute
my longevity but I never thought of stepping
my feet in the 21st century. Time was too
fast that I never knew where I actually was.
The 2020 Vision of Dr Mahathir was nothing

the world, which I had never dream of
Wow ! I have

Ministers of Malaya and Malaysia from Tunku

an old tired man and bones protruding out of
my ankles that made me understand of the
folly fighting ageing. I missed the World
War2 and life under Japanese occupation. But
the shrieking sound of low flying jets that
dropped bombs on the Communist terrorists
could still be heard in my mind.
Many of my
friends have died and many younger people
had gone to meet their fate in the next
world. Pondering back at human destiny I
realized I have crossed far into this
current decade, already 2014. Could I reach
Some people say
that we are not to entertain the thought of
growing old and never think of ageing. Do
what as others do. I am not the only old man
at the jogging track. As I saw many men and
women as old creatures, they too saw me as
an old creature as well. I am sure one old
man is older than me but he was doing a
non-stop jogging which I would estimate more
than 10 miles. I could not chase a few
elderly ladies who walked so fast, floating
like a butterfly. Women about 50 put on pink
cheeks and red lips. They just want to feel
I did my
exercise not to fight ageing. I just want to
feel fit and strong so that I can lift and

time and again. "There will be a time when I

getting older and weaker. Pray to God that
my strength and health won't fade so that I
can continue helping you." My wife is two
years younger but she is afraid to die.
You have two
choices. Either continue to live as if
nothing happen and you are as ever, and let
the fate follows it's destiny or be prepared
to die. The first step is to realize and
always be aware of our final day, any time,
anywhere and by whatever cause. Then let
fate takes care of itself. There is no need
to hide our accumulated wealth from our

PLANNING MY LAST TRIP TO USA
Nursing my wife
and sending her to the dialysis center is
not an easy task. There are problems coming
ahead. The main problem is the
transportation back and forth to the
dialysis ward, for the only suitable car
which has the seat level equals the wheel
chair height, is now too old and the engine
gasket begins to worn out. All other cars'
seats are higher and farther than that of
the wheel chair. Direct lifting of her body
into the car is almost impossible. She is 81
KG and I am only 64kg. The current transfer
board available locally is only 26 inches
long. I can't lift the other end of the
board to address the uneven height of both
of the chairs.
the internet I saw several types of sliders
up to 35" long. One is 50" which is very
I wrote to the
shop asking for the quotation. "We don't
sell outside USA," came the reply.
I talked to my
wife of sending my kid in Kuala Lumpur to
USA. "I don't think they will buy them,"
said my wife. True, kids want easy way out.
One of them went to USA recently and didn't
want to find out and purchased the items
back. My wife asked me to go by myself.
For a 10 day
trip would be alright for me but she will be
facing lots of problems. I can make an
arrangement with the medical center to fetch
and send her home for the dialysis. 6 trips
would cost me about RM600. The main problem
is to hire a nurse to stay with her and
managing her food, toiletry and lifting her
from the bed. That I have not talk to the
agency. I estimate I may have to spend about
RM2K for the service of 2 weeks.
Of course I
have to do a lot of homework on gathering of
information about the locations of the
medical outlets that sell such facilities.
Then I have to shop for the most economical
fair and the accommodation.
I estimated it
would about RM10K for the facilities and the
board. I could pay double the price if I can
get someone to order for me. The existing
plastic slider I am using is about RM40.00.
The Beasy board on the website is about
USD300 and other items would cost me a total

told her I used to stay in a place where I
could not even find Long John Silver and
K-Marts and JC-Penny. She told one of the
nurses about my possible trip. The nurse
said, "You must buy back something for us."
It may be just
a dream. In the meantime I will be asking my
radio friend, Hanafi, to buy the Beasy and
other transfer board by the e-Bay. He agreed
to help me in the order if I provide me with

purchase could be done within one day and
without much hassle. Going by bus would be
very hard. I have to figure out the bus
route, else I need to take a taxi from the
nearest bus stop to the outlet. The second
shop which sells almost everything I want is
in Las Vegas. Vegas is a fun place for happy
go lucky people. Similar problem applies; it
is about a car. Or the other way round is to
order stuffs from where I will be staying.
One of my major
problems is that I do not have any credit
card. That would hinder the online purchase
and car rental. With Rusli accompany me many
problems would be solved.
If the whole
purchasing episode could be completed within
5 days, then there are 5 remaining days
left. It would be a fine time to attend
hamfest at the nearby location, enjoying
Universal Studio and Disneyland, visiting
some exotic places around the area. Or even
visit San Francisco.
I will also
have to plan my communication with my wife
and inform her of my daily activities using
Skype or some other applications. All will
be managed by the hired nurse.

Did your kids

to. And we should not despise people with
darker skin color. They could be much wiser
and attain the highest degree of mental
intellectuality. And finally not to have
negative concepts of the elderly who could

for bad. My wife and I are too old and too
sick to take care of other people. We
strived hard to survive our remaining days.
I met many lonely old men who left their
families for the broken hearts.
I missed my
mother very much and felt I have not done
enough for her. As a compensation I told my
students the 'barakah' of doing good to the
mother and father. When my teachers told me
that their parents are visiting them or fell
sick at home, I wanted them to give priority
to the parents. One teacher requested to
back early to take care of her mother
attended by only maid, to clear her vowel
and provide her a meal. I gave her
permission. Another asking for a permission
to pick her mother at the airport. "Arrange
your class," said I."Don't come back to
school. Attend her for the rest of the day."
If you are
still young and your kids are challenging
and defying you, you can say 'Thank you" to
them loudly or deep down in your heart.

I can't say
much about ESSB because I have not been
monitoring DX band these days. On the Websdr
I only monitored CW. But on 7 Mhz , I did
hear hams on the SSB modes.
Did the ESSB
signal impress me ?
I can't assess
the quality of the audio as I have impaired
hearings. Hence my judgment do not represent
the views of the hams. It is according to my
own taste. ESSB does not impress me at all
as compared to the normal non-bassy sound. I
just like audio with a high pitch. Once I
heard 9M2MRL whose signal came with full
clarity into my home. From the scale from 1
to 10 I would give him 10 as compared to his
counterpart who was using ESSB which I would
give the maximum of 3. It was hard to figure
out from the bassy audio.
As I have said,
it is a matter of taste. I am not going to
discourage anybody from purchasing the
gadget. Millions of other people may find it
pleasing to their ears.
In my opinion
the most important part of hamming is the
good antenna system. A mast of more than 50'
to house a Yagi or a Quad would do us wonder
even with a simple cheap and basic rig. We
can have a 100K transceiver which means
nothing without an antenna like a wealthy
handsome man without a dick marrying a
beautiful actress. Power amplifier helps a
lot without the aid of the band condition.
Flex Radio and using computer for Morse
communication are new items in ham radio.
Without them amateur radio is still a
complete stuff. With them amateurs gain more
experience and greater knowledge. If a ham
can't afford ESSB, APRS, Flex and computer
he can still enjoy the hobby as much as his
predecessors. I won't buy the ESSB stuffs
even if I am a rich man.

been working DX are in position to tell more
about the others; how many operate such a
gadget especially the Americans and the

PHD, DATO' AND A PARIAH
Try to figure
out the number of PHD holders, the Dato's
and the Pariah in Malaysia today. What are
the differences between them ? It is up to
you to think and say basing your assessment
and judgment on observed behaviors and on
what they say.
questionable is the PHD; on what knowledge
of research finding, which university and
which Professors award the degree. Is the
PHD in Arts or engineering and other
discovery in technology ? I won't be
surprise if all UMNO lawmakers will come up
with a PHD degree soon.
PHD in area of
science, medical and technology could come
from a simple e=mc2 as long as it is
something new to the world. You can't award
a PHD to Amerigo De Vespucci for discovering
America because America had been there
before he was born. Surely we want to know
what the PHD is all about.
A degree could
be earned, bought or given if it is in arts
discipline. It has been tested before to
find out the authenticity and the validity
of an online colleges. Should we talk about
the free degree ? People may not be happy
and will deny it with utmost anger.
Dato' would be
a nice thing to have. The only person who
refused the Dato' or Tan Sri was Mohd Khir
Johari. He said," There is enough Dato' in
this country." He viewed it like selling 'kacang
puteh'. The title is an honor and
awarded to good people. A Dato' has to check
his demeanor, speech and other deeds. He
should not make a foolish statement that
could opened up an attack or criticism. He
must be wise and full of wisdom.
The most in the
country is the Pariah group who have been
bullied and bluffed and lied upon days in
and days out. Some are so very stupid that
they celebrate the rising cost of living,
happily paying more and paraded their
champion at being the forerunner of any
climbing hardship. Cows are stupid because
they are brainless. There is nothing could
be done to this category of Pariah.
The word Pariah
almost to mean 'out of the cast system'. The
Brahim, Ksatriya, Baisya and Sudra are in
fact the economic division of social
function. The ancient Europeans too had had
the church class, the military, the business
and the normal labor groups. If you are not
in any of those four in the cast, you are
out of cast. In ancient India the outcast
group was the lowest and the others were
barred from mixing or dinning with them.
Our Dato's and
dignitaries still mix and dine with the
normal people, especially near the election
time. They would even cast away the

SHOULD TEACH CHESS NOT HOOLIGANISM
Chess is a game
that requires thinking. Hooliganism throws
away God's greatest gift, the brain and
bulldoze at anything at all, disrespecting
law and order, threatening and staring
satanically, and would do anything at all at
any expense for the demonic boss. You see
them during the election period and in the
studying, quest for knowledge and hard work
are evil to them. What more if you mention
Chinese Chess to them. Without
knowing anything it is likely they would
response 'Lan Chau' to you. I started
to play Chinese Chess in form 2 and reaching
the peak in form 4. My regular opponent was
a worker at a Chinese Medical Supply shop. A
game would take us about 1 hour at least.
What we call
English Chess today is not English in
origin. Chess started in India around the
6th Century AD. It was called chaturariga.
Today the Malays called it catur.
Chess called Xiangqi is almost
similar to the English companion. The
position and movement of the 'Che' (
written in Chinese as CAR') is identical to
rook or castle. It has the horse too MA
moving in L-shape like the knight. There is
one that is not found in the English version
called Pau. Pau jumps a piece to
eat the opponent.
may have started much longer before the
Indian chaturariga, may be more than 1300
astounding numbers of Malay youths and kids
involve themselves in the game. It is
encouraging and something to be proud off.
It would be much better that they also must
participate in the Chinese chess competition
and become a champion. I did register and
play in a Chinese chess tournament in a
Super market once many years ago. I won the
first game. I shook hand with my opponent,
thank him and walked away, giving him a
walkover. I went home with a smile.
I would like to
call UMNO and PERKASA members to fight the
Chinese using the brain, not in science and
mathematics but in the games of Chinese
chess. And fight the Chinese with the brawns
in the games of basketballs and badmintons.
If you can emerge as champions in Qiangqi,
basketball, badminton and a debate in
Mandarin, PERKASA does not need the Ketuanan
Melayu anymore. The honor lies there, in
being the champions.
One good thing
of Xiangqi is that it is cheap and not
bulky. Sorry I can't say how much it is. May
be less than a dollar.
It is true that
hooliganism help UMNO and BN including in
vote rigging, stealing away ballot papers
and other deceitful moves, but it would not
help the Malays in the end. Leaders would
lose respects and UMNO would be associated
with bad elements. 28 out of 30 thieves
caught were Malays. The main cheaters in
UMRAH package were the Malays. UMNO should
be concern of the criminals, liars, cheaters
and drug dealers

far below cost. The seller did not make
profit but just to cushion off a bit of his
damage. Hams like 9M2WT and 9M2AT (Tunku

This time it
made me mad at CIMB Bank HQ Kuala Lumpur. I
called Shahrul. Shahrul asked for my IC
number, both new and old. Unsuspectingly I
gave both. He then told me about my overdue
account with CIMB. I said that I had no
account with CIMB. Then he said about me
having a credit card. "I had no account with
CIMB and have no credit card with the bank."
"You have a
debit card with Soutrhern Bank." He changed.
That confused me more. "I have never been to
any Southern Bank and never had an account
nor a debit card." I shouted over the phone.
He said that I had made a payment last year,
which I asked him no more. He asked me to
check with the nearest CIMB Bank.
I went to CIMB,
the main branch. The officer asked for my IC
card. "You have no account here." The lady
asked me to verify with an officer name Viki.
Viki took my IC, went inside and she came
out to tell me,"You do not have any
account old or new, no credit card and no

Shahrul is not a banker but an agent.
I rushed to the
police station to lodge a report. After a
verbal narration the police woman told me
that next time I should reply to such a
message. There are too many scams now.
Criminals hack and get information about
people from various sources. "Are you

reply. She asked me to come back again if
there is any document of claim comes to me.
Just now I
checked back back the first message and the
number from the website. There were many
complains. One says it is a bot. There are
two words that made me conclude it was not a
bot. The first was Ur to mean your and
second is Tks to mean 'thanks'. These two
words are regularly used by hams. And I
checked 0124952037 and I saw two
complainants about this number.

BLIND SPOT OF MUSLIM MALAY EDUCATORS
for Malay Muslim educators are those with
powers and the people who carved the
education system and policy. They do not
include the normal teachers. They started
from the school heads to the Minister of
education. Teachers are to do what they are
told to do. One lady educationist in the
education department said "Teachers are to
do not to ask". Many bring home their jobs
because there are too much to complete. They
bear heavy burden without a word.
The Ministry of
education created policy, curriculum and
visions and shove them down into the tunnel
of the school system. Those were never
static and underwent changes very quickly
from time to time. The secular education
caused fear among several concerned parents
and choose to send their children to have
early education in religious institutions.
I saw disaster
in the system that would cause the social
chaos, declining morality, new value system
that elevate human right and liberalism. We
could wonder how they chose officers to
important posts. One retired school
Principal would only praise and talk about
Mahathir during the weekly assemblies.
Another wanted to get rid of computers
because of the bad influence on the
students. The majority believe they are
dedicated enough and know their job well.
My boss used to
tell me that it was my duty to know all
about my staffs and whatever happened in the
school and it's surrounding. It sounds like
an impossible task. But it is a task. We
need more than the third eye to sense.
Despite the effort there might still be some
blind spots we fail to see.
I have narrated
before about the students who can't read nor
write, about the Mislim students who can't
perform ablution and prayer, and about those
who can't do academic learnings. If Ustaz
Kazim and Jakim could not know the damage of
the Muslim students how would they know the
existence of haram shortenings
in Cadbury and other foodstuffs ?
When there were
cases of apostasy of a big group of Muslim
students overseas my first thought was the
sin of UMNO and the MSD. I murmured to my
sick wife about the role of MSD and an Ustaz
placed in them. "UMNO must have put the pro-UMNO
ustaz in the MSD to campaign for PRO-UMNO
club". Don't I know any officer at all in
the MSD, their ability and mentality ?
I never think
UMNO is worried about the present storm of
Cadbury and apostasy. Everyone is busy with
protecting the interest of the party, fear
of losing money and position. Everyone is
thinking how to be an illusionist to win an
election. Would Mahyuddin be alarmed at the
deterioration of the Muslims morality ? But
let me praise Datuk Ahmad Bashah who anually
donated RM5K to my school for the training
and coaching the Muslim students who lack
the practical knowledge of religion. I would

We are told
that progress is wealth and the attainment
of the state of the art technology, high GDP
and high per-capita income. The Malays will
be backward and left far behind if idling in
the economic race. Those indulging in the
spiritual world will not be contributing to
the growth and development. We give our
focus to those with high academic
achievements to enhance global
competitiveness. Everyone ignores the
dropouts and the low achievers.
Now we are
living in a violence world. Criminals caught
were with many previous records. The law and
punishments are very kind to them. Big time
robbers who robbed Bank Bumi, Perwaja and
PKZ went scot-free. You can steal as long as
nobody sees you. Even if someone is seen
stealing he is not 'stealing' unless he is
effects of secularism are the blind
spots people just can't see. In the mind of
the educationist every planning and policy
is perfect. If they care to investigate
every individual they wouldn't have made the
force streaming of 60-40 science-art cohort.
The poor in mathematics will sure to plunge
additional mathematics. At the end of day we
will produce enough people to be called
'pariah group' who have no insight of the
eternal world, neither would their feet
touching the ground.
What is the
cause of so much confusion in Malaysia ? Our
leaders have lost the ability to think. To
be more specific and precise 'the Malay
leaders have lost their ability to think'.
On education and economy and other matters
they engage other national and paid millions
for the policy. They consult some Indians or
Chinese to tell them on GST and other local
They put all

projects and gifts. They arrange all the
public resources for their benefit. They
seek the help of the clerics to justify
their evil acts, corruptions and misuse of
power. The highest of all they claim that
they are divine and UMNO is the party sent
educationists see the type of citizens it
would have produced for the future, NOW ? Or
they deliberately chose to produce confused
and chaotic Malaysians ? And should the
school's heads and educationists created
more jobs to do the extra jobs which they
are not paid to do. Matters of morality and
religions are the jobs for the parents.

FOR A LIVING
I have both the
Chinese and Malay friends doing big
businesses. Their fates were similar. Many
had to close down their businesses. The
Chinese I knew did not show their tears but
keep on struggling, opened up a new and
different outlet. Successive failing opened
up their minds to took for some luck to
start a new in Australia or the United
States. There were Malays who did the same,
migrating to those places to open up
restaurants and work on a farm.
Life is a
struggle for all races. To the Chinese
idling is a suicide. To them they can't
expect anything from the government. Skill
is only through being an apprentice
somewhere from the young age, working
without salary except for free meal. Some
took 15 to 20 years to gain total experience
to receive RM3K a month.
Never think any
business can make you a millionaire. Just
try an electrical outlets. You may have the
minimum of 7 workers and a monthly
commitment is about RM10K. The sale must at
least give a profit of 11K to cover the
cost. Selling durable goods is not like
selling goreng pisang or mee goreng. My
friend who closed down his computer shop
worked under his sister who opened up a
restaurant. "Rstaurant makes money," he told
computers were most found to be closed.
It is not the
same as selling a few hundred thousands
1Malaysia laptops to schools by a company
belonging to a crony. The supplier made
millions by a single stroke, and the members
of the public are paying for the machines.
There are business that forced into people's
throat in exchange for a forced payment like
Indah Water and the IPP. Even the Telco
siphons for unanswered call.
Malays, the Chinese too borrowed money.
Chetiers are gone. Loan sharks replaced
them. It is seldom for the poor Chinese to
get help from the wealthy ones. The poor
Chinese suffers as much as the poor Malays.
Compare with the Malays, the Chinese find it
extremely hard to get a free entrepreneurial
or skill training.I seldom hear MCA gave
away money to help the troubled Chinese.
They collected much more than any possible
contribution to their community.
I can't talk
for the Indians due to my poor knowledge
about their community. I had had three
Indian workers in my school, two of whom I
encouraged to do part time businesses,
making and selling muruku. I supported one
to buy a grass cutter. One Indian student is
now in the air-force. But I guess the
Indians and the local Thais had to do a lot
of struggling to survive.
that crimes are related to poverty and
joblessness, except for the drug addicts.
You smell crimes everywhere, and they seemed

The Chinese who

about survival. The rest are thinking about

not recognize racial composition nor creed.
There are millions of poor Americans in the
land of the wealthy. There are many wealthy

and dexterity to live on, with the hope
their siblings would come to their rescue
when grown up.

A HAM DYING DREAM
In a far far away land, father than the land
of Timbuktu, ham radio was a part of a past
time of many people. They chattered day and
night among themselves. They were jolly good
fellows having enjoyable time chatting on
They had only one class then, which is today
called Class A. Exam was tough as it was
held in English and in descriptive forms.
Those who listen to their conversations were
called SWL, a short for Short Wave Listener.
Though transceivers were difficult to get,
some of the SWLs could accumulate them to a
big shocking numbers. They had one dream -
to talk to those hams they had been
Years passed. Many SWLs sat and passed the
radio examination, applied for a Morse Test
and awarded with a ham license after passing
both the written and Morse tests. To qualify
for a ham ticket was tough for the masses as
many were not well verse in English and
Morse codes was the main hindrance. To those
who could not get through either gave up
listening or continued with the dream. One
of them was Men Kong Gong.
In the later part of the century a Class B
category was introduced. Hams under this
class were restricted to VHF ( Very High
Frequency ). The exam format changed. The
questions were in objective forms. Men Kong
Gong sat for the test and passed. Since his
dream hams were on the HF, he could not
communicate with them. He needed Morse
certificate, which he found difficult to
Ham Radio was not only in the land beyond
Timbuktu but it was an international hobby.
The world seemed to worship the United
States as a god. The great nation changed
it's policy, to abolish Morse requirement,
and it was a great opportunity for those who
can't learn Morse to put pressure on
the authority to follow the United States.
In the meantime one by one of the old hams
passed away. A few living ones were ageing
rapidly. Some are ailing and a few gave up
their licenses. As the old hams were
diminishing it followed that the dream of
Meng Kong Gong would inevitably followed the
same path. It became a dying dream of the
ham, Meng Kong Gong.
What can we learn from the story ?
To achieve a certain dream we have to put
out our optimum energy and resources,
working very hard with patient through time.
It is a process of attitude development,
erasing fear to face hardship and
difficulties. The harder the barrier the
bolder we shall be to overcome the
obstructions. I have heard words of a few
teachers "Come what any type of Principals
we are not worried...." because they were
very hard working and fulfilled the total
Changes and innovations do not guarantee a
perfect world. Drugs, crimes and other
social illness remain despite the tremendous
technological progress. People continue to
live in fear. Houses were broken into.
Bikers snatched bags and get away with it.

Internet conning is rife. There are killings
in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine and the

India. Corruptions, gays and free sex have
become a norm. Your kids are not safe

the radio through different twist and turn.
Political platforms were usually used -
radio for RELA, radio for PERKASA and radio
for some other NGO groups. All do not use
their radio for the jobs set. They chattered
like hams. You tend to open up loop holes to
confuse the authority. There is no need to
keep 15 or 30 transceivers before becoming a
ham, and to use HF sets to intrude on banned
frequencies for you.
I noticed that those who broke rules would
pressure the authority to pass the law of
what they had been doing.
Men Kong Gong would have his dream became a
reality if he had followed the style of
