To whom it may concern,
I think it is time
that you pay back the loan which you took from me.
Your promise of a week's payment has taken more than
5 months. You are a Haj and a Muslim. You went to
Mecca several times, and I always respect you as a
man of God. It was you who told me that some ham
radio guys cannot be trusted with me and tarnish
their images giving me a bad perceptions of those
guys. Now I realize that you are one of them.
Your arch and number one enemy,
also a ham radio operator, told me to HALAL the loan
and forget about it. I was very surprise at his
contention. How I could I when I am very broke now.
I need money to repair my car, and I told you
several times that I was broke. You never reply my
SMS. I am jobless. You should understand it. You are
a big time contractor, getting projects valued a few
millions. You pay cash for a house and you have just
inherit a huge property and your parent's saving of
a few hundred thousands. What is RM500 to you.
Surely you should not keep me waiting in abeyance.
Probably you have been doing this
to many other people as part of your profession.
If I lost RM500, it is sadness
that I feel. It is a lesson for me, not to trust
anybody anymore with any money. But loosing a friend
like you is a blessing. The more people become your
victims it will be the worst for you. At time you
call for help, nobody will go for your help. I am
already glad that I do not have to attend your kids
wedding and when you fall sick or die.
If you can whisper about other
distrusted hams withy money, I too could have
whispered about your honor and integrity to the
sates of Kedah, to JKR, to education department and
to UUM where your relative always call you for
projects. For just 1 RM500 I won't do that. But with
God's retribution as you are a man of a Haji,
someday you may hit very hard down the earth.
You ought to know that I can be
This is for your perusal but it is
not the end of it. More to come until you have
settled the loan.

IGP-A REAL TOUGH
Our IGP is
threatened by someone who posted it on the youtube.
I am sure he will be apprehended soon. This rang me
up to the years of 1970s when a number of top cops
of ethnic Chinese were shot one by one. The
assassins were unknown.

are having some psychological problems, anger with
him as many others who are not happy with they
called anomalies or inconsistencies.
not tell the world of their intents or send any
threatening letters. The IRA who was a great menace
were never caught in their bombings. And any
individual planning in murdering someone won't even
tell his closest friends or family members.
Malaya the Chinese won't rise against the
government. They will use a democratic means to
overthrow BN, by the ballot papers. The police
suspect the Malays to be more militants. At every
Friday prayers the police are there recording the
sermons and in every area division they have at
least one to spy on the people. But the Malays do
not have the means to buy weapons and they could not
be bothered to use any kind of force against the
police must take serious of the threat, not only to
bring the enemies down to their heels but at the
same time must also look back at any complaints made
against the police by the opposition and by the
commoners on the social media.
The job of the
IGP is extremely tough. But at all time he must
weight between the interest of a nation and the
people and the interest of his political master. If
they move in opposite ways he must act or honorably
request for retirement. 1MDB is a big issue to
investigate to find out any element of conning or
blackmailing. The report made by NYT on Rosmah's
spending and the source of payments must be studied
I think Khalid
somewhat knows those who threatened him. They have
to some educated young men with strong ideal because
they talked about the evil of democracy. Mahathir
himself had touched a little on the same thing-UMNO
leaderships have to beg from the Chinese.
Khalid does not
have to worry about Najib's premiership. No one can
bring him down. No way. Not even Mahathir. The later
is wrong to say Najib is weak.
- Abdul Rahman Raof
NAJIB MUST NOT
ALLOW 1MDB TO SPIN
If I were the
police I would investigate 1MDB, not because of any
suspected crime or wrongdoing but a matter of
precaution. Where big money is concerned checking is
just a normal routine. First 1MDB said Ananda
Krishnan is not involved in the rescuing the company
of a 2 billion dollar bank loan. A while later it was
announced that the loan had been settled. Najib was
asked to clarify whether the government settled the
2 billion dollar debt. Now we are hearing that
Ananda did make the payment. AND 1MDB is asking for
more cash from the Malaysian government.
It is a
shameless and the most immoral spin of the century.
The way things go, I have a strong haunch that some
guys in 1MDB is blackmailing Najib. That is why the
police must step in and dispatch a team of covert
investigators to find out whether there is an
element of blackmailing. Secondly the police must
follow the trail of the money, where the 42 billion
dollar went. There should be several layers of
The police has to be fast and
swift. No more money is to be given to 1MDB. At the
same time national media must stop promoting 1MDB
until the police give a green light. It is a great
to know why all records in 1MDB computers and
mainframes were being deleted, and probably now
being replaced with falls data. The police and the
auditors can always check the trail of the money.
Right now I have a strong haunch that these people
relentlessly are putting pressure on Najib to do and
say what they want.
If the police find there is an
element of a blackmailing then the most severe
action must be taken, quietly and the public need
not be told of the action taken. Remember with the
42 billion they can hire a big time gangsters to
With such a hypothesis the police
can start with systematic investigation. Otherwise
they would not know where to begin.
As a concern Malaysian I always
wish 1MDB is not a scam, not run by con men and
there is no element of blackmailing. Arul just need
to tell the truth instead of spinning. For God's
sake stop demanding cash from the government. The
rakyat must not be burdened with filthy failures.

THE LEARNED SHAFIEE
Several times the
Presidents of the UNited States said 'The world is a
safer place without Saddam, Osama, Ghadafi....' Now
those people are not there do we hear anyone saying
'YES the world is at peace now and the Americans can
sleep well...' ?
And I picked a
statement said by Shafiee that putting a Anwar away
is better for the nation. If it was aconspiracy, it
is good for the people and the nation. And Ahmad
Maslan recently said "What Shafiee said about Anwar
is the truth..."
Today the police
are hauling one by one of those who criticize the
apex court judgment. This move had been expected
even before the delivery of the judgment and had
been put in a list of actions. The whole episode, as
I see it, has been the work of the learned Shafiee.
Didn't he play his role to convince the judges as
what he is now doing with the UMNO members on the
roadshow ? Anwar must be put away for the good of
I can still
remember Shafiee with a sling bag watching
Hishamuddin Rais and others at the speakers corner
in the '70s at University Malaya. I didn't know that
he was a law student. He was much handsome then.
Seeing him like a Mamak, I had guessed he was from
Penang. Most of my History major friends ended up in
politics and becoming some sort of Ministers. Only
40 years later I was told Rosmah was a student too.
But I could not remember her.
I did not know
where Shafiee was during the Student's
demonstration. Neither did I remember Anwar Ibrahim.
I only knew Anwar was arrested. Hishamuddin went
missing, which later I came to know he ran to
Things didn't end
in 1970's. The two names popped up again in the 21st
century when both Shafiee, Anwar and most of the
1970's university graduates are really at dawn,
waiting for the day to meet God. A few like Fatah, a
close friend of Adnan Yaacob, had passed away. I
know Anwar never changed from his schooling days but
I can't tell about Shafiee. Probably they continue
to carry forward their traits. "I want to be a Prime
Minister," said Anwar while he was a school boy. His
mother was a vocal UMNO politician.
engagement between Anwar and Shafiee at the Apex
court was nothing strange. True, both were from
Penang and both men knew each other.
What the public
see is different from what Shafiee sees. Judgment
base on fair evidence is different from 'Anwar must
be put away for the good of the nation'. The later
must brush away any evidences and witnesses that
would strengthened Anwar for a sodomist cannot lead
a nation. The court use a different value in
delivering a judgment and the public use the normal
value which they called the fairness.
It is only fair when Saiful is jailed too.
Surely Shafiee and
UMNO leaderships will never accept Saiful as a
candidate at any constituency. If he so to be
trusted and admirable, brave young man, UMNO should
give him a very important post in the party. A
Senator would be the best.
I can bet, our
lerned prosecutor, Shafiee, will be haunted by his
own conscience. He has to force himself to believe
that he is doing the right thing by putting Anwar
away for the best of the nation. But Shafiee must
know the Malays are not all fools and stupid.
When Nik Aziz
passed away there were thousands attended his
funeral. Would it not be possible when somebody else
die people will be called to attend the funeral by
offering a hundred ringgit each ? Let our posterity
be the witness.

WHAT DOES OUR NATION GAIN BY LYING ?
The UMNO run Amanah Saham Kedah had gone down
many long years back. My elder sister, being an UMNO
strong lady, bought the share. At the trailing
sickness they tried to give live to it, calling a
few people whom they thought were experts. When
nothing could be done, more money were wasted by
sending these guys oversea to study how others
manage their coffers, the man in charge asked them
to declare that the ASK was benefiting. The
investments made gave a good return. Fortunate or
unfortunately those people refused to do so.
So when 1MDB chief announced 1Billion profit in
the questionable investment, I was not at all
convince, simply, lies has become the culture taught
by our leaders. They lie on GST that benefit the
people and prices of houses will be down and they
lied a lot before the GE13.
What does our nation gain by lying ? We must
remember the scuffle when Felda decided to put Isa
Samad in the FGV, and saw the extreme degree of
arrogance, pushing everyone aside and ensuring the
public it was a wise move. What are to hear
soon from the plunging of the share price ? We
can be rest assured that Najib or Isa will put the
blame on some others, as they are blaming the sole-towkey
for the shrinking ringgit.
It is true that some individuals will gain, as we
are now seeing in the 1MDB 42 billion dollar debt.
If that amount is shared by 42 persons one will get
a billion each. Even divided 1 million each, you can
imagine the 'chak bo leow' (enough for entire life).
The amount can command a devil to pull a bullock
cart for you. But the citizens will have to pay
through their nose.
Najib announced the increase in the Brim for the
rakyat. Does it bring the prices down and our
economy better ? When Bank Negara announces that our
GDP increase by 20%, does the cost of living stall
or getting lower, and our economy beat the rest of
our neighbors ?
Ku Nan once accused the Chinese were sabotaging
our economy because they want BN to fall. Then we
need to ask Ku Nan since when the Chinese hate the
government and sabotaging our economy ?
Doesn't the government has all the think tanks
It would be better for the government to be
really transference as far as our money is
concerned, not to hide what it does to our national
The 1MDB issue should be put to public debate so
that the public can truly see the total amount of
money, the debt, the investments, the profit
clearly. The second debate is to call upon all the
financial institutions involving in it's credits or
debits, for clarifications, confirming the truth.
The 42 billion dollar debt, the shrinkage of rubber
and palm oil share prices, the shrinking of ringgit cannot be
welcomed. We all should be scared. Our nation won't
be any stronger.
Lying and deception are weakening the Malays. The
government has to arrest more and more Malays for
some reasons or the other. Mahathir says ISIS exist
because the failure of the Islamic nations. The
Malays are arrested and oppressed because of the
failures of UMNO, and because they voiced what they
thought were the truth. It does not look Islamic. When questions are raised and you
can't answer them, you arrest and jail them.
No wonder the Book of Illuminati says 'people
fear men, not God'.
- Abdul Rahman Raof
SHOULD PAS AND UMNO UNITE ?
PAS must not depend on DAP, PKR or UMNO.
The party has been on it's own for decades, rising
and falling. Joining PR to topple UMNO has not been
successful. The party simply cannot mix with DAP.
The party has been accused as a tool for DAP. The
later will never respect PAS to implement Syariah
Law even in Kelantan.
UMNO is a vulture calling PAS deviant and to a
certain extend being suspect as the potential
terrorists. UMNO says that it is a party sent and
ordained by God.
If PAS and DAP do nox mix, so do PAS and UMNO. To
UMNO lying, decepting, currupting, cheating, abusing
of power are not sinful. No action is taken against
the delible-indelebile ink supplier. Prices to
government departments are sorely inflated. And
innocent people are arrested or jailed. When MIC and
MCA meddled with the affairs of Islam, UMNO mumed
UMNO is a party for the Malays by it's acronym
alone. Whereas Islam composes of all races.
It is better for the two parties to remain split. It
is more natural and it has been that way from the
If any Malay wish to be rich and wealthy they should
join UMNO. They can rake a lot of money. PAS could
not give them material wealth and money.
I would predict that if PAS free itself from PR, the
Malays would make themselves available in the
Islamic party. The exodus will be a great one.
Eventually UMNO will be left with some countable
members. The rest should be decided by fate.
- Abdul Rahman Raof
WILL THE MALAYS CHOOSE THE CHINESE RULE ?
A day will come
when the Malays prefer Chinese to lead this nation.
At present the current fear is on the fate of
Islamic practices. They see it will be a doom for
Islam with the Chinese leadership. Even if Islam
flourish in Communist China, millions are free to
live the Islamic lives, the Malay fear will remain.
UMNO will continue to put the Malays in horrific
state, especially among the rural folks.
I can assure you that if Lim Kit Siang or his
son, Guan Eng, is a Muslim, in no time the Malays
will opt to Chinese leadership. A Chinese Muslim
does not have to practice Malay culture and
tradition. Many can still remember Admiral Cheng Ho
who sailed to Malacca and other regions in the
Indian Ocean to extend the Chinese maritime and
commercial influence. Cheng Ho was a Muslim. His
full name was Cheng Muhammad Ho.
A religion does not come with a race. A Malay can
be anything and practice any religion. He can be a
Hindu or a Christian or a Jew. Neither has he a
perfect and admirable demeanor. He can be good,
honorable and honest. Or he can be ruthless, evil,
stinking and filthy. For God's sake just do not
trust a person just because he is a Malay or calling
himself a Muslim and dressed himself with Arabic
robe. My mother was cheated of her jewelry and I had
been cheated more than three times by Malay teachers
and a contractor. These are all junk Malays.
At this juncture the Malay fear of DAP still hold
water with the leadership stance on Islamic Law. DAP
leaders are seen as despotic as their UMNO
counterpart. Yet the number of Malays embracing the
once Chinese party is on the rise. It causes a great
panic. Despite the all out campaign the Malay
leaders are beginning to buy homes outside the
country, hoping they could escape persecution in
case of any unpredictable events. And like German
Nazis in South America with totally different
identity, be hunted by Israelis.
BN has to show to the Malays that it has their
support. I doubt the numbers shown by ballot papers
are real and authentic. With huge money, magic
tricks and illusions were played by the Samsengs and
the special squads. Votes and voters are not always
tallied. Even if when the Chinese population outnumbered the
Malays the twinning would be in the favor of
the ruling party.
To stop the day when the Malays will choose the
Chinese as their saviors UMNO has no other
alternative but to play the racial card at the
ground level. To stay in power it will woo the
component parties with promises and goodies "Make
me a King and I will give you what you want".
PAS MUST QUIT PR TO
AVOID MALAY EXODUS TO THE CHINESE
The only way to avoid the Malays run to the
Chinese for protection is PAS must be independent
and stand on it's own again. It must not be part of
Pakatan Rakyat or the sympathizes of UMNO. The
Malays will flock to the party to escape the cruelty
of UMNO. It can contest more seats and there is no
way for UMNO to accuse the party as being part of
PAS has ample time to split from PR. The divorce
would be bad for UMNO, and let it be. And PAS does
not lose anything by being alone again. Nobody can
CHINESE DOMINANT IN 2035
But BN too has predicted the Chinese dominant in
Peninsular Malaysia by 2035 when the young voters
emerge in great numbers. It has to depend on the
Sarawakians and Sabahans. That's the reason for the
new electoral map in those regions to ensure more
seats for BN. The Chinese must try to offset BN,s
plan by pushing themselves out of the densely
populated area to be scattered everywhere else
for the more equal voting distributions.
The normal Malays who have been living together
with the Chinese will not find any different.
MALAYS DEVELOPED HATRED AMONG THEIR OWN KIND
a. Only God
knows why there are so many criminals among the
Malays especially at their young age. They broke
into homes, snatching bags, taking and peddling
drugs. Young boys and girls shrieking and showing
off their acrobatic skills on their bike. Parents
attacked and threatened school teachers who
administered discipline their kids.
The young Malays broke into mosques and stole
whatever things that can be liquidated.
b. Inhumane treatment of the Malay government
officers are very intolerable. I can't say the
frequencies of such the case happenings. People were
talking about the police and the town counsel
enforcement officers. I had had an experience with
custom departments. They said nurses had laser
c. UMNO members especially someone with a post
were very arrogance. They would be happy if others
bowed, licked their boots, praise them and called
them Dato' or Yang Berhormat. An ordinary school
worker went in and out of the school on his own
will, feared by his own boss.
d. Non-Islamic behavior and acts of the Malay
politicians; the late Nik Aziz is now laid at rest.
His UMNO foes called him infidels and his abode is
surrounded with idols. Mashitah said a single mum
can be a prostitute. She also rejected the Muslim
Holly Book. Najib continue to break his promises
openly. Corruptions have become a norm.
e. The Malay government have been arresting the
Malay Muslims on suspicion they are terrorists.
f. Partisan judges were promoted to the highest
post. They are known as UMNO judges and prosecutors.
Members of the public see them as bias.
Less is argued on the welfare of the Malays in
Singapore. There is no literature about the state of
satisfaction to record their feelings. But it could
have been the Malays in the island are much better
off than the Malays in Peninsular Malaya.
There is a relentless effort to prove the Malays
in Penang are oppressed by the Chinese, either under
MCA, Gerakan or DAP. The rest of the Malays are
following it very closely. If Penang can prove that
the Malays are saved under Chinese rule then the
future can be anything. The preference to the
Chinese rule will be due to the bad perceptions of
the current Malay leaderships.

SIRUL AND ALTANTUYA
There are two
main questions asked by a lot of people; who was
Altantuya to Sirul ? Where did Sirul get the C4 ?
known to be Abdul Razak Baginda's woman. Razak is a
friend of Najib. It is no interest of Altantuya to
Sirul, Najib's bodyguard. It would be unthinkable
for Sirul to kill Altantuya for no reason. He has no
motive to do so. Like any ordinary policeman,
including the IGP, he will act under order of his
immediate boss. Does this make sense ?
Assume that he
acted on his own will, out of his own insane mind
like any other mentally retarded with disordered
mind, or under the influence of heavy drug, where
did he get the C4 bomb ? All these happened when
Najib was a DPM.
minds are pondering.
We are in the
vortex of evil today, a serious one, which has it's
beginning during Mahathir's era. How could we not
put the blame on Mahathir who was rude enough to
kick Abdullah Badawi out. Yet with all the
turbulence the Malaysians will not act like Korea or
Thailand. The leaders will still be saved.

STRIVE WE WILL
Everyday I talked the
same thing to my wife about the many expensive cars
we saw on the road and palatial houses almost
everywhere. We can afford only the cheapest twenty
four thousand ringgit Produa. With a meager pension,
I have to strive hard for a living. Annual rates,
vehicle insurance and other bills came to about 1K.
At least 20% of the pension goes to the medical
supplies for my bed ridden wife.
We thank God for the providence. We can have what
we want. The saving under ASB gave us some fresh air
Yesterday I gathered back some of the old shirts
that I want to bring to Vietnam, a RM2K trip which I
long yearn to go. One red shirt I love very much is
torn. I bought and wore it for more than 30 years.
Most of the others were above 30 years. The colors
are as lustrous as ever, they do not fade. Those
were branded shirts. They really worth the money.
They were the same for my trousers. I do not buy any
new ones for a long time.
I am not so concern of myself. We can survive.
But I know many of those are much worst, all
Malaysians of all ethnic groups. Poverty knows no
boundary nor skin color. There are millions in the
United States too. The poor me can still enjoy good
food and able to take nearby oversea vacation.

warning. It happened in Iraq, Libya and many other
countries. It can happen in a million of ways. A

A few days before the Chinese New Year, I went to
super-market hoping to see a few new cheap shirst
for my Hanoi's visit. The discount was fantastic,
70%, but the price was more than RM200 for a short
sleeve shirt. After more than four visits, I finally
bought a RM70 shirt. I hope it will last at least
for 10 more years. Probably I won't live to see the
sunny day by that time. A man showed me a T-Shirt he
bought in Hong Kong for about RM2K a piece "Cheap.
In Malaysia is twice the price," he told me. Mind
you, the shirt has no radiance, no luster, no color
and to me it worth just RM40.
One ham radio friend, a class B licensee, bought
a house cash and a big four-wheel drive, and he owed
me RM500 and went missing until today. Then I know
people with a big house and a grand expensive car
cannot impress me nor simply could earn my respect
just by their sheer materialistic gadgets.
People just above the poverty level like me are
still poor and facing hardship in life with the
mounting cost of living, the shrinking dollar, the
inconsiderate greedy billion air that are running
our lives and the evil politicians who fear no God
nor believe in religion.

SWEAR BY THE QUARAN
It looks like justice is taking a new look,
swearing by the Quaran is considered the truth and
righteousness. First we saw Najib swore and now
Shafiee. The pinacle to parade their righteousness
is the swearing in Mecca. It was repeatedly said
that Saiful dared to swear but not Anwar.
Someone commented that the Muslims won't tell lie
and won't dare to swear by the Hollybook if they are
guilty. Do we want the swear to be used as evidence
and a court standard ? Then try to cut short the
court proceedings by asking those under criminal
charges just to swear by the Qaran. My prediction is
ALL will take the swear to plead innocent. And the
jails will be only be filled with the non-Muslims.
Even the non-Muslims charged on murder will
eventually convert to Islam and seek the swearing as
MAN EVERY DETAIL OF IT
Like the death of Altantuya, people keep on
asking about Sirul's motive for killing the young
lady and who gave him the C4. There was no interest
of Sirul on Altantuya. It creates doubt and people
are blank. They want to know what were in the
Not only the Malaysians were following the
proceedings, the whole world did. And they did so
very closely. And never say those who criticized
court's decision as pro-Anwar Ibrahim and anti-Najib.
But Najib has to be mentioned because Saiful went to
see him. They want to know the motive and what
transpired from the meeting. Any random answers
would not erase suspicion and may not be thr truth.
Lies are traceable by the unfulfilled promises,
not by the swearing of the Quaran. Neither it is
from who said them, a Mamak or a Malay. Look back at
the promises before the GE13, mountains of them. Yet
they said Muslims don't lie. If swearing by the
Hollybook is taken as a standard then cut short the
court proceeding by requring the accuse to swear by

I suspect 1MDB is a
conned project planned by a group of con men who
went to see Najib and painted some rosy
picture about's it benefit to the nation. When Najib
agreed to be a guarantor it was the greatest sting
of the century and the saddest event in the history
of Malaysia. These con men spent the money in
manners they wish and like, in unknown and
non-existing project. But who cares because the
government of Malaysia is paying for that. The
burden is on the Rakyat to pay the 42 billion dollar
debt. The GST is geared towards the huge payment.
The UMNO Malays as stupid as
usual attacked those who voiced about the 1MDB,
saying it is a profitable undertakings and it will
benefit the nation. They do not know what had really
happen and how UMNO leaders have been conned for
There are two
pertinent questions that need to be looked into. The
first is do the liquid assets plus all other 1MDB
assets attain the value of 42 billion minimum ? Can
the Malaysian government take over the total
management and administration of 1MDB ? Do you think
the 42 billion debt will slowly be reduced or will
keep on climbing ?
by TV media of all aspects of 1MDB issue is much better than
the hourly advertisement of GST.
The police must not keep quiet. So is everybody in
the Ministry, Central Bank and more so the UMNO
people. Malaysia must not be drowned just by a
handful of people. If proven the con men had cheated
our Prime Minister then they must be hunted to their
graves, arrest and tortured, and cut their limbs and
let they live.
I think the same error as RM250
millions to the NFC was made by the government. They
did not scrutinize the movement of the money. But
RM250 millions is nothing compared to 42 Billions.
And Najib should not be allowed to sell our country.
When Cabinet Ministers meet they must make sure
Najib is there and bombard him with questions, every
reply must be accompanied by proofs. The cabinet
members must check the authenticity and validity of
Najib's answer. Our nation is at stake. The full
force must act; the police, lawyers, judges. bankers
and everyone else. The nation must be saved.

Chief justice warns those who make unfounded
attacks against judiciary
Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria has issued a
stern warning to the public that appropriate
action will be taken against those who tarnish
the image and dignity of the judiciary.
His warning came in the wake of criticisms
levelled at the judiciary after the Federal
Court last week upheld the decision of the
Court of Appeal in finding Datuk Seri Anwar
Ibrahim guilty of sodomy.
Arifin said the
judiciary was open to criticism but will not
tolerate unfounded allegation in the social
media and at public forums.
"We view with seriousness such conduct and
will not hesitate to act?'" he said in his
speech during the elevation of four judges
to superior courts at the Palace of Justice
in Putrajaya today.
Arifin said any baseless criticism
against the bench would weaken the
administration of justice and erode public
confidence in the institution.
He said due to advancement in technology,
many displayed their opinions and comments
to what was happening around them in social
media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and
Arifin said their remarks had wide
following although some were unjustified and
could be questioned.
He said it was the responsibility of
everyone to protect the image and dignity of
the bench so that the administration of
justice was unhindered.
"In this regard, I urge, especally the
lawyers not to act in a way that they side
step the rule of law to channel their
dissatisfaction on court judgments," he
He said the public must also be careful
and responsible in their opinions and
comments on social media because of the wide

panel to uphol the conviction of Anwar for

proceeding will be instituted against the
opposition leader for attacking the
"That one I do not know. It is a
different matter," Arifin told reporters
after attending the elevation ceremony today
of four judges to the superior courts.
Accordng to procedure, it is the
judiciary that will have to begin
proceedings since the incident happened in
the court room.
He said he did not hear what Anwar
uttered from the dock as he had suspended
"My approach is when what is uttered is not
fair, I just adjourn the proceeding to calm
the tense atmosphere. I did not bolt from
the bench," he added.
He said he had no personal grudge against
anyone and that he wanted to do his duty
with utmost sincerety.
Anwar's outburst was witnessed by those
in the packed court room before Arifin could
decide on the sentence to be imposed.
Arifin, who delivered the 116-page judgment
had earlier ruled that Anwar’ was guilty of
sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful
Bukhari Azlan in 2008.
Anwar attacked the bench for "bowing to
their political masters and becoming
partners in crime in the murder of the
Anwar told the bench there was something
amiss when the Prime Minister's Office
issued a statement barely minutes after his
conviction was upheld.
"In bowing to political masters they have
disgraced themselves and have become
partners in crime in the murder of the
judiciary," Anwar said, before Arifin asked
lead defence counsel Datuk Seri Gopal Sri
Ram to tell Anwar to stop.
But Sri Ram told Arifin that his client
had the right to address the court, to which
Arifin retorted, "yes, on the appeal but not
to condemn the court".
But the opposition leader continued
attacking the judiciary, adding "you had the
opportunity to right the wrong but you chose
to remain on the dark side".
At this juncture, Arifin and the rest of
the bench members walked out.
Anwar continued to speak and shouted into
the microphone: "I will again, for the third
time, walk into prison but with my head held
"I will not be silent and will fight for
freedom and justice and will never
surrender," Anwar said.
The bench convened later only to affirm the
5-year jail term imposed by the Court of
Appeal last year.
The warning above is carried on by Malaysian
Insider. Below are some of the responses by
rakyat fight back irrespective of who issued the
warning. The article below 'Anwar, judges and
Islam' talked about some of the reasons why
people do not see justice is done. None analyzed
the show of praise by the judge on Saiful but
deeper analysis can show the color of the inner
heart. Judgment must be base on ALL evidences
not by the liking towards individual. In this
case the high praise on the accuser, Saiful the
none dare to take the issue of Saiful's father
who had passed away un-peacefully. The
respectable judges, lawyers and all other
mankind who have children would know their sons
and daughters very well. They know which is good

well. Wouldn't Saiful's father knows his son
well enough ?

The people knew what
the judge delivered and they also followed the
court case closely. The phrase justice must be
seen to be done is not justice must be seen to
be done by judges.
They even argued on the
movement of the goal post; from rape to
consensual. Surely somebody was asking Saiful to
change the charge so that he could talk of KY
Jelly. Even then Saiful must be charged also. If
two persons committed a murder, and one reported
the other, could he be saved ? Then many top
criminals and murderers can escape justice just
by reporting the others.

tumbled across a beautiful essay pasted below. Rama
talked about the process of judiciary, not so much
on Anwar Ibrahim. Truly indeed most intelligent
Malaysians do not matter Anwar but on how the
judgment came about. Millions perceived as what Rama
is saying but do not have the language ability to
express their thoughts.
The other lawyers of the world viewed Anwar's case
as what Rama sees. People are not dumb.
The Malaysians have been suffering from some kind of
withdrawal, psychological in nature, uncontrolled
ego of superiority complex, arrogant and adamant.
They have been very ruthless, even to hurt the
feeling of the newly elected Indonesian President
who said that the most painful experience was when
he first visit Malaysia. We presented to him that
the Indonesians are beggars who intrude into this
We attacked Porntip and other outside lawyers, not
to mention how we treat our own people. Yet with our
mental prowess we lost Pulau Batu Puteh.
With the declining ringgit we blamed an individual
of a sabotage. How could a great nation like us with
great lawmakers, judges and lawyers and economists
be swallowed by just one man ? The strength of our
dollar does not purely happen on the buying and
selling of currencies. Thailand and Indonesia have
gain strength over Malaysia for years even before
the declining ringgit.
We will keep blaming other individuals for the rest
of our lives. I hope to hear names on the declining
of rubber price and palm oil during our bad economy.
If we believe in saboteur it means we have enemies
in our midst. Showing our muscles and using foul
mouth do scare our enemies. People will have to
fight back under pressure. Running amok and hacking
everyone that oppose you will not touch those who
are better than you. You may be right if you think
they hit back at you.
After hurting Jokowi and jailing Anwar, they are now
fighting to bring the price down. First they
attacked the Chinese. Then the wholesaler. And now
the middlemen. They are talking about getting rid of
the middlemen. These smart Ministers spent most of
their time in Putrajaya under the very cool room,
some negotiating with big time business lords, while
an ordinary man like me, went to the source of sea
catch. Prawns taking up from a boat were tagged at
RM75 a kilo. There was no middleman and no Chinese.
Who loves middlemen ? Number one and the top
middleman's lover is Dr Mahathir. He created
middleman in the purchase of electrical energy, a
middleman in sewerage disposal, and the middleman in
other undertakings. Please, observe the public

NASIONALISM IN SABAH AND SARAWAK
The Sabahans and Sarawakians put BN in power. Now
thought of independent begins to germinate and the
police is determined to nip it in the bud. That's
how the history of free nation began. From the
sentiment to protest and to war. The Americans
fought the British to free themselves from the
Crown. Malayan nationalism did not begin in the 20th
century. In the deep mainland there were Mat Kilau,
Dato' Bahaman and Tok Janggut who were against the
British. In the Straits of Settlement the Middle
Eastern educated groups started their own movements,
to improve the Malays through several form of
The feeling of anti Putrajaya among the Sabahans and
the Sarawakians loom as they felt they are being
discriminated. A few regard Malaya as a colonizer.
The secessionist group is growing and the Federal
government began it's arrest on the Sabah's
nationalist group. The secession movement is called
SSKM, Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia. An arrest
warrant on Doris Jones was issued for her several
postings on social media calling for the people to
raise up against Putrajaya.
Nationalism of the current centuries takes in
different form. It is no more a heroic movement
against the bad and ugly colonial and imperialist
power. They are now known as terrorists. The
Palestinians who fought for their homeland are
terrorists, the Muslim Thais who fought for autonomy
are terrorists, the Tibetans and the Uighurs are
terrorists. It is a matter of time when the SSKM
movements are labeled terrorists groups.
Though the Dayaks and the Kadazans are more
intelligent than the Malays, they are easily brought
to their heels. Putrajaya is described as the Master
of Illusions. The masses succumb to it's deception.
Even Mahathir was overwhelmed.
Malaysia is blessed by good people, who do not have
the animal instinct of arms uprising and the minds
of the IRA. The reason is simple. Even poor people
do not die of starvation. Those who are critical
against the government are educated and earned more
than the basic needs.

ANWAR IBRAHIM FOUND
Anwar Ibrahim guilty and in his judgment he praised
Saiful for being brave and courageous.
"It takes a lot of courage for a young man like him to make such a disparaging complaint against a well-known politician like the appellant.
"Knowing that such an allegation might taint him, we cannot ignore the lifelong negative effect such a serious allegation would have on him and his family even if it was proven to be true"

Ariffin also mentioned
that Saiful hid nothing, even told of the KY Jelly.
He added that Saiful had also spoken about the previous encounters he had with Anwar, the unpleasant sensation of pain and the reason for bringing the KY jelly, a lubricant.
"He hid nothing.
Interesting. Saiful brought
the KY Jelly as if for the intercourse to reduce the
sensation of pain. Women having sex with well
endowed manhood never have the sensation of pain
after using KY Jelly. But Saiful complained to the
first doctor that his anus felt the pain.
It is true that the young man
will suffer for the rest of his life. If it is the
truth that he is being 'rape' then society will show
sympathy. Many victims of rape live without mental
agony after some time. But if Saiful is viewed as a
devil then he will be disrespected and insulted for
the rest of his life.

Saiful claims justice as a

member of the class if he fits the requirement. If
the requirement cannot be met he has to leave the

Club etiquettes are dear and must be well observed.

If you don't consider it a cheat, surely it is a
form of deception. Almost all the businessmen are

go for profit maximization. " We don't force

One of the food shop I hated most is Mee Abu. The
Apom Lenggang cost almost a dollar each while at the
the Giant Wet Market it is sold at RM0.30.

the people. It is not owned by a race or a
nationality. It can be in any man, business or

probably wanted at least a dollar. And a wealthy
contractor had a gut of taking a RM500 loan from me

their salaries and keep on demanding for more. The

meager income. The lorries which were to send relief

Whenever a decision on a certain policy is
formulated it must take into account of human
behaviors. They are to be examined in detail. Didn't
the policy maker know that it is very difficult for
the increasing price of items to go down ? It is the
price behavior in capitalist countries. Private
enterprise and individuals want to maximize profits.
Travelers would know that touring Communist
countries like China and Vietnam are much cheaper
than the capitalist nations.

tariffs will push commodity price up. Bringing down
their prices at a later date will not pull the price
down . It is somewhat a natural price behavior of
human being, a phenomena in any capitalistic society

money in many ways and the government is mum about
it. Insurance companies are one of the worst, and

robbed and given to cronies like the RM250 million

profiteering only without looking at those who abet
in the plundering of public funds. You can't cover

was in the ham radio since early 1970s. We were told
to ignore any deliberate QRM. And that was what I
used as my guidance, to ignore criticism and proceed
with my own stand. If anyone is setting up a super
duper station I would praise him. If anyone has the
bare minimum set up I would not criticize him also.
Some hams like RTTY. Others prefer telephony. And
others, like me, love Morse codes. Yet there are
those who love communication with the International
Space Station and other roaming satellites. Each has
his own taste. People's tastes aren't of the same.
went on RTTY but stopped in no time. While others
were working satellites, I was busy with DXing with
stations on the North and South poles, a rare place
much father than the satellites. CW helped me to
continue having communication when I suffered from
coughing and sore-throat, and I remember a Malaysian
ham who suffered from a throat cancer but continue
to be on the air on CW till his last day. 9M2GL was
one of the longest on AMTOR mode. He even
experimented on SSTV.
The whole face of global communication changed with
the advent of World Wide Web and proliferation of
chatting software with audio and video capabilities.
In the beginning was just a simple IRC chat where
windows of the world were opened to all, reaching
people thousands of miles away just by pressing the
keys on the keyboard. A friend of mine said, "I
contacted with my office mate who is in London
everyday with audio and video without a ham radio."
And I would guess that at least 50% of the Malaysian
hams are communicating among themselves using
computers. Rather than going RTTY or AMTOR, I would
prefer online communication. I don't have to spend
more money on interfacing gadgets. Again, it is just
a matter of taste.
believe that we have to keep our mind alert and
sharp. Ageing tend to take those away. Retired
people prefer to rest their body and mind. One way
to keep my mind alert and active is to listen to
Morse codes. Lucky for me I made my own soft ware
which allows me to run text files in the CW tones
while I work on something else. I would not be able
to comprehend RTTY or AMTOR but I could do so with
Morse codes even while I was in my bathroom.
me it is a real crazy when we have radios yet we
talked to each other using hand-phones, even though
it may be free, or to call a ham friend to open up a

RETRIBUTION TO MAHATHIR
One of the greatest mistakes I made was thinking
that Mahathir would continue to rule until his
death. Those were the days when the police were
swarming mosques, all the Islamic festivals and
Kenduris. Like the West Mahathir saw Muslims in
Malaysia as potential terrorists, which the police
found nothing. He was the law. Anti-Mahathirsm among
non-UMNO members were so thick that he was even
called the Pharaoh, the most detestable despotic
ruler in the history of Islam. He made his own rule
to ruin Bank Bumi, MAS, Perwaja and opened up the
land grabbing schemes where hills, forests and
agriculture land were razed and raped by those with
He himself wanted shares for his kids, friends
and his family. He design major projects, making
agreements in favor of his chosen contractors. When
Pak Lah delayed his major projects he kicked the
former Prime Minister and placed Najib as the new
PM. He got the projects and the money.
Today he sees something horrifying things are
happening. Our dollar is shrinking badly which
pushes import food and gadgets price up, our loan
payment increase by leaps and bound, and a string of
bad luck is sweeping our nations. Najib used money
to make people forget the increasing cost of living.
Mahathir's brainchild of privatization and using
third party to sell social services is shinning more
brightly during Najib's tenure. IPO, MyEG and TELCO
are sucking the poor people.
Some influential UMNO guys were not happy with
Najib. They went to report to Mahathir. At least 50%
of the common people talked about Rosmah and even
accused Rosmah is running the country. So far there
is no vocal attack on Rosmah by UMNO members.
Probably Mahathir sees Rosmah plane ride was too
At the same time Mahathir wants Mukhriz to be a

THE MORSE AND
THE TAP CODE
Sophisticated people invent sophisticated codes
to be used for various purposes. One of them is to
convey messages that are supposed to be secret. Tap
codes sent through dancing may not be realized by
the onlookers. It can also be sent using CW. Ham
operators do not learn tap codes, instead adopted
Morse, which is more speedier than the tap. The
longest character of Morse is 4 bits while the tap
is 10 bits. It would fun for hams to know both.
At the extreme band condition CW is very readable
and intelligible even with low power. It has no
English, American or Japanese slang. Voice signal is
modulated, having the ups and downs, and it comes
with slang. More power is required to pump to push
for better clarity. Communication with stations from
India could sometimes be at a mercy. When full
Indian slang is used you would not want to have a ragchew. But you can still work the same station
using Morse for as long as you like.
QRP is the most handy for emergency used. Power
can be conserved for several days and light to carry
During emergency and calamities like mini

practices and using the QRP during the placid
period, a ham can save his life if he is on a raft
or floating logs. It is hard but there is a hope.
The emergency frequency is a must knowledge to the
people during such a disaster.
It is hoped that the QRP has a GPS built in. A
basic map showing mere co-ordinates would help.
The beauty of Morse codes is that it is an
international language. Imagine a Greek guy who
knows no other language but Greek meet a man from
Timbuktu with the same language deficiency. Both
have to use body and sign language to ask each other
where they came from. Using Morse both only need to
say QTH Greece and QTH Timbuktu.

continuous wave required a short space between
the first and second threshold. And all will be
in the dit form.
Radio started with Morse messages and it is much
faster the tradition of communication is still
in this mode. SOS in Morse requires 9 taps while
in tap-codes it is 21 taps.
encouragement to use Morse over other digital
modes is that it is using the minimum equipments
and not much fixing to be done. A signal can be
decipher just by hearing. If you are calling for
help using RTTY it is more likely that someone
whom you are going to help will die. A walking

WHAT RIGHT HAS A MAN
The history of liberty told about the fight and
struggles against the iron hand of religion and
churches, where the absolute freedom of mankind are
curtailed by priests and popes, holding the Holly
Book by their hands. Among the most unpopular was
Though Shall Not Commit Adultery. A man
has the right to think in his own way and act by his
own will. He cannot be forced to do things he does
But any man has the
good and evil side in him. At time what was wrong
for others was right for him, and wrong for him and
right for others. "I have the right to do. You won't
have any right to do it."
Mankind is never perfect to invent or create an
ideal. He always play with words for justifications
of his action, and seeking public opinion for
approval of an action and concepts. He talks about
consensus but not on absolute sense, for a majority
is a tyranny of a majority.
If they talk about
the right to be naked, there is also a right to
cover one's body. A child had said, "Why can't I get
married at 14 ? It is my liberty to marry at a young
For many a thing in
life mankind still use their wisdoms. A Muslim man
can takes 4 wives. Do all the men marry 4 wives ? It
is difficult to find even 1 out of 10000 who will
take the maximum spouses. When wisdoms come into
play mankind can live with the least regulations.
People find happiness in respects and understanding,
helping each other in needs and deeds. There is no
question on freedom and liberty.
Government is a body
that robbed away people's freedom and liberty. They
always say for the good of the people. "The world is
a safer place without Saddam Hussein." Then "The
world is a safer place without Osama ben Laden."
Then "The world is a safer place without Ghadafi."
And it will go on and on. The final words are 'The
world is a safer place without terrorists".
Who are terrorists ?
If you think ISIS is right than you are one. If you
say 911 is an inside job, you are a terrorist. If
you wear Hijab and keep a long beard you are one
too. The Palestinians who fought for their homeland
are terrorists. How about those who attack Rosmah
who think public money is hers ?

with the change in the value system. Rationality
always claim that it is independent of sentiments,
which is isn't. On many occasion it is an effort to
approve it, a justification to love or hatred. The
same sex marriage and the legalization of marijuana,
the exchange of spouses, and public nudity have
become an ideal of Western liberty.
my past observations of the live in the West,
America and Europe, I saw public places were
vandalized; walls and trains were sprayed with swear

Ours is the political

the half past six people to administer public

coercion through brain washing through verbal
deceptions days in and days out by our national

who earned big money are the worshippers of Western
liberties and cultures.
What right has a man
in a democratic country ? He has to pay taxes of all
sorts. GST is a forced tax in order to live. God
gives us free life, GST takes it away. You have to
pay for food and milk and medicine and medicare. A

from a post and sacked from colleges and
It is not too much
for me to say that you are free to take and

ON THE CONCEPT OF GOD
The lesser I talk about God the better.
It is very difficult for a man like me,
the non-native English speaker with a
low level of this language, to write
anything at all about the Al-Mighty. But
by humanely description I have no choice
to use the word HE from time to time,
for HE is not the right term to be used
to describe God.
Our human mind cannot transcend God, no
amount of logic and rationality and
science and philosophy could bring our
imagination near to the power and any
characteristics or property of the
Creator. There is ONLY ONE GOD. The Jews
and Islam does not differ in the concept
of ONE and ONLY GOD. There is a
different between Allah and ilah. The
later, ilah, means god. 'al-ilah' is The
God. Allah is one of the 99 names of the
God. The Jewish God and the Muslim's is
the same but given in Hebrew as JHWH and
like Islam the Jews call the God by
Weak mind tend to imagine god like the
characteristics of mankind; a god has a
wife, from the wife comes a son. And the
son of the god is mortal, can die like
any other man,and eat and drink like any
other living being.
Human can't imagine what the power of
God like and how angels work. The
farthest we can go is to discover the
law of nature; physic and chemistry of
energy and matter, how those things
behave under what conditions.
The concept of strength through unity
could be true by the human mind among
the worldly things. The simplest shape
is a triangle. Ancient religion created
gods in trinity, to give strength and
power to the idols they imagine as their
gods. Then followed by rhetoric and
explanation of the doctrine of trinity,
all for justification.
The Christian belief of three gods in
one went without challenge. It was
formulated for justification in 381AD.
Religion was made by man and changed as
time passed. In Trinity we need to know
the name of the god. I think more than
90% of the Christians called Jesus as
god. The old Testament gives the god's
name as ELOHIM. It also mentioned
YAHWEH. But Jesus is never mentioned as
ELOHIN or YAHWEH.
When the Catholics in Malaysia say Allah
is their God, it is amounting to casting
away the doctrine of trinity. In which
part of the trinity is Allah, ELOHIN or
YAHWEH ? In the book of Illuminati it
mentioned the Great single God. The
Christian said the name is Lucifer and
associate it with Satan. If the
Christian is wrong on Lucifer then the
Illuminati too believes in a single God.
A God cannot be born and cannot die.
There is no human trait of God. If
the Catholic says all other religions
are false, it should better look at
itself. The Hindus stopped creating
justification by adding and changing
concepts decades after decades. At least
the quantum is showing it's similarity
with the Hindu philosophy. We never
heard of Hindu's god's birth and death
but we heard of Jesus was born and
The West began to shake off their

1MDB - JAIL, FLOGGING AND TORTURE THE
Savagery must be given a place however
uncivilized it may seem to be. Crooks
must be punished from the normal jail
term and fine to the most severe we can
think of. We do know that the United
States does not end it's enmity
only with Osama, but with his whole
family, to make sure the tree will leave
no inherent seeds.
Hanging or death is not a maximum
penalty. The most severe is jailing,
flogging and followed by infinite
torture. This too is practiced by the
United States government.
We don't know whatever happen to 1MDB
and who proposed it's formation. We need
to dig what was the original intent,
whether in good faith or a mere plan to
con the government for big money.
Goldman Sachs just want money in a legal
way. He has his term. But what about the
gang who went to see Najib ?
We ought to remember about the
authenticity of documents tendered, like
people using fake IC and Visa, not
recorded in the database. They were
manufactured for temporary used to be
shown to us, akin to a blank check.
Najib can always order for the closure of
1MDB and recover back every single cent
of it's liability, whether crooked or
not. As Mahathir said, "There is no
need for such a fund." We must also
remember lawyers could do wonders what
we call illusions of great magicians.
It is hoped that 1MDB was all bloomed
with the real dream and in a good faith,
without malicious intent to siphon
public money using the head of the
nation. Otherwise those involved must be
severely and painfully punished by the
present government, or by the laymen,

OH GOD !
PLEASE DON'T LET MOB RUN THIS COUNTRY
Triangle is almost a country by itself. The
Drug Lord is a King, a Prime Minister, a
President and an Emperor. The people love to
be in the region and ever willing to die for
him. Those of the underworld are wealthy and
powerful, feared by the police and the
politicians, lawyers and judges. They set
rules and the politicians follow. Now the
Golden Triangle is not the top opium
producer. It has moved to the Golden
Crescent. Instead of destroying the opium
field, the CIA took up the opium business.
Slowly in the United States drugs are
legally finding their places on shelves.
If the Law
combines with the mobs, a tremendous power
could be created. Both the mobs and the
police provide a strong shield beyond
penetration. Not even Captain America can
challenge any Mafia law maker.
We have no
alternative but to appeal to the God
Almighty to protect the Malaysians from the
rule of the hell devil, the gog and the

are too weak and too helpless. We have to

WHERE'S OUR MONEY GOING ?
When our ringgit was strong we said our
economy was good. And when it plunged
down we also say it is good for our
economy. It goes down together with the
price of rubber and palm oil. And we are
paying more for groceries and other
commodities. What actually goes wrong ?
The laymen like many of us wouldn't be
able to comprehend the current Malaysian
economy. All the time we have been
hearing beautiful things about cheaper
living, the lowering of prices, cheaper
houses, people come first and GST is
good for everyone. Many years ago if you
ask questions you would be branded as
Communists. Today you are duped as a
member of DAP or charged under sedition.
I don't feel things are good for the
people. I felt the GST is to pay for the
running interest that will never ever
end. The debt will keep on raising
despite the payment. The money is raked
from the public, like the poor kampong
folks borrowing a hundred ringgit from a
chettiar and finally lost their land to
We have seen much from the history of
Malaya; how our land went to the British
piece by piece, how the Malays were
being conned and manipulated. It
continues till today. They are still
sleeping and weak enough to think of the
even the near future. Greed grabbed
them. They thought they are smart as
lawyers are around them.
UMNO pays the bloggers to tell the truth
of the government's good intent and
deeds on the people. But they use their
pens to defend the wrong and blindly
attacking the oppositions with
lackluster arguments. When people asked
of PM absent in the flood zone, they
asked why Lim Guan Eng was not there.
To me, both Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Guan
Eng mean nothing. With or without them
does it won't make any different. What
matters most is the way our country is
going, economically and socially. What
will happen to our generation to come,
with the prevailing chaotic condition;
the minister-kingpin relationship, the
arrest of nationalists and those show
concern of our nation, the wastage of
our resources, the rushing for the land
grabbing, the steep climb of the cost of
living, the criminals who robbed Perwaja
and PKZ that went scot-free, the racist
stance of politicians, the privatization
to cronies, the abuse of power and the
different view of judges and courts.
However there is somebody who would not
care at all to what happen to our
economy and the drop in money value;
namely the drug addicts. Tell them about
the sky is falling tomorrow, they won't
care. Tell them about a great war is a
mile away, they won't care.
The kampong folks are as good as docile
housewives. Many didn't pay income tax.
These are the main assets to UMNO. BRIM
would surely give a vote each. When the
clerics say that it is a sin to question
the government, it is a sin, that DAP
will made this country a Christian
nation and Islam will perish under the
party, everyone feels so very scared.
Their minds are what TV1 tells them. GST
is good for them. Declining currency
value will make our country richer. 1MDB
serves the Malays.
The intelligent tax payers always want
to know where their money go to. Telling
them that 800 millions went to flood
victims is not enough. I also am anxious
to know where our money go to. Mind you,
asking Rosmah what she does with
PERMATA's money, you may get sued. Still
unanswered question is where the 250

HOUR IN DARKNESS
My Lorong Bayu
electrical supply was shut off for about an hour
just now. In the dark I told my wife "It is only
for a while. Soon we will get back the supply.
Imagine the flood victims without water and
electricity for days." I don't know how the new
generation felt living in the dark and if without
the pipe water. We used to live in darkness with the
kindness of the kerosene lamp and the water blessed
by Allah through rain for drinking and high tide for
washing and bathing. But rain was in abundance then
and noon tides were daily. We never felt even an
iota of misery.
Then I remembered
ham radio while my maid was lighting a
candle. How would they operate an emergency station
in the flood area without electrical supply ? And my
wife said, "Tomorrow I don't have to go for my
dialysis because there will be no electricity." She seemed to be
happy like a school boy who is told that tomorrow is
a school holiday. "No way," said I. "They have their
own supply as a backup. Otherwise while doing
operations their patients will all die."
The natives in the
deep jungles of the world have been living without
electricity and fresh water supply for generations.
At the same time they have never heard of road tax,
GST, sales-tax, property tax. They do not be
bothered by big names like Bush, Kim Jung Un or
Rosmah Mansor. But later the people who brought them
electricity brought them misery. They were chased
out of their land, forest cleared by civilized
people with lawyers and politicians and towkeys, and
the police behind. Then they would prefer life in
the dark without bulbs and electricity.
I have been
wondering how would life be to Najib and Rosmah
without water and electricity ? But even by the
event of the worst devastation, dry spell, flood or
earth quake the top brass, the lords, the
Presidents, Kings and politicians would not suffer.
Supplies to them are on different lines. Misery is
the property and the ownership of the common people
and the slaves.
People are so used
to light that darkness has become a scary evil to
them. The recent news that the world will be without
sun for 4 days panicked everybody. How about telling
them felling trees on the hill tops would cause
flash flood and fresh water crisis ?
Remember our old
folks, who would always put off the light when
having sexual intercourse ? It isn't the same
anymore. They even want people to watch them doing
the sexual acts.
Water is always be
my first preference compared to electricity. People
have been living without electricity for thousand of
years but not without water. And I know the supply
would return soon. It did after for about an hour
later. They must have restored the big fuse
somewhere. The short darkness with the candle light
brought back the reminiscence of the rosy past. The
babbling touching the elite group is something for
everyone to ponder about. Taib Mahmud were out of
the country when there was a heavy haze and a few
chose vacation rather than attending flood. I didn't
make them up. Were not those what we saw ?
An hour of
darkness was a period blessed for soliloquy. At
least I have one listener, my sick wife.

MAT REMPIT DISTURB
ROSMAH'S PEACE AND TRANQUILITY
Rosmah and Najib could not sleep well
because of Mat Rempit. How about those
who live near the airport and the
railway line and those in cities ?
Rosmah should also tell us since when
those people were causing problems to
her. Isn't she has all the power to put
it to a stop ? That's not a country,
only a handful of people. If she can
manage to handle MH17 and Putin, what is
this to her, only a small fries.
Or was she trying to convey a message
the happenings were deliberate ? If it
were then there was an act of rudeness,
showing no respect to their PM. How
could this happen with all the kindness
our PM has shown, giving away cash every
year to the rakyat. Rosmah has been
getting national awards after awards.
She must be respected. She needs a lot
of rest, after her daily hard work to
look after the country.
I don't think they were deliberate. If
they were they could have done
worst things and much more devastating
than mere tearing the full throttle,
challenging even the wall of security.
We have heard of explosives being used.
And the anti-tank weaponry has killed
several people in Gurun.
I live long enough to pass all the Prime
Ministers' wives. And never once I heard
of any complaint from anyone of them
before this. Though internet was unknown
then, news traveled fast, far and wide
and from mouth to mouth. If
any, a big majority would have known the
adventurous tales of PM's wives.
Mat Rempit isn't the MAT phenomena
alone. In Alor Setar the MINAH joined
the group, yelling and shouting with the
high shrieking voice, shameless and
mannerless, throttling the street
showing off, some with BN T-shirts. Guys
like these were deployed by BN to harass
the opposition members.
Rosmah went on saying that they were
under 'our care'.
In Holland people go to work either
using the public transport or using
bicycles. I don't remember seeing Dutch
Rempit there. How about putting a ban on
sale of motorbikes and only allow
bicycles, electric or otherwise, in
place of the current motor system.
Electric scooters can go up to 25 mph.
Some expensive models can go between 80
- 93 miles/hour. 25 pmh is good enough
for shopping and marketing.
With cities and towns free of motor
bikes, most noise could be eliminated.
Rosmah could have a better sleep.

access to ham equipments.
The TIDAK APA on the control effort has
projected the bad practices. I predict
that Malaysia would be just like

concerned. In the end the MCMC will be

THE KINGDOM OF
GANGSTERS AND MAFIA
Hollywood movies could be totally
fictitious and imaginative, or they are
trying to portray the truth most people
may not know. They depicted politicians
and top police as umbrellas to the big
time gangsters and mafia. A few were the
big boss of the gang and mafia network.
But there were heroes taking care to
fight those criminals wearing government
uniforms. Judge Dredd was one of the
Drug kingpins and other top criminals
are big people with huge wealth,
gentlemanly mannered. They always made
themselves present in luxurious and
expensive clubs, getting to know high
ranking police officers, politicians and
Ministers. They invited Ministers and
officers to dine with them.
The kingdom of gangsters and mafia are
not isolated, far away in the deep
forest of the golden triangle. They may
be in Capitol Hill or Putrajaya. They
have lawyers and influential people
behind them. At time they would show to
their politician friends that they could
be very vicious.

President was taken over by the process
of cloning. Without the hero, USA would
be run by the criminal, unknown to the

Najib's family said the PMO. Why did it
take several days to tell the answer.
The question was raised by a DAP member
much earlier who wanted to know who were
on the plane ?
The plane with technical problem dared
to fly more than 4500 miles for a
repair. As we all know a plane with a
technical problem won't be allowed even
to take off. There is no such thing as
risk taking. And the problem has to be
known at Honolulu airport while PM was
From Honolulu to Kuala Lumpur is nearer
by the direct flight. From Kuala Lumpur,
airlines to Los Angeles never follow the
Western route across India. They fly
over the East coast, across the ocean.
The question is in which direction the
9M-NAA flew during the take off from
Hawaii ? At what moment of time the
technical problem was realize ? It
cannot be after the take off or 30
minutes after the lift off, because by
that time the plane is nearer to Japan.
It only made sense if it was before and
not after. And it did not make sense
either to take a risk to fly 4000 miles
with the technical problem.
After the repair where should the plane
fly to ? Obviously it should fly to New
York, not to Los Angeles and then back
to New York. It will be a puzzle to
everyone. While at Los Angeles it should
have flown home to Kuala Lumpur. If it
needs refueling it could have stopped
either in Taiwan or Hong Kong.
What's the plane doing hopping all
around ? And the joke was it landed in
Bangkok. From Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur is
just over an hour.

When do they start to know the
technical problem occur ? Before or during the
flight ? If before, how could a plane with a problem
dared to take a flight West 4,345 miles, not 50
miles. During the flight Eastwards they came to know
of the technical problem ? Then instead of flying
back to New York, it went to Los Angeles first, then
back to New York, London and in Bangkok.
JOY RIDE ?
My disabled and sick wife praises
Rosmah Mansor to the highest degree. As a wife of a Prime
Minister using government's jet to
travel around is a normal thing, she
said. Then she went on asking "In
the first place why Najib married her
?" That's a question that I would not be
able to answer.
Rosmah has been a hot topic these few
days. There are people who support her,
like my wife, and there are people who
just didn't have anything to say. "She
is better than DAP," others were
heard to say. And exactly, that is what
UMNO is going to tell the people,
Those who voted for Mah, the Teluk
Intan Gerakan candidate, may not realize
the relationship between BN's winning
and Rosmah's joy trip using public
money. The winning was seen as a mandate
for an all out abuse. BN supporters were
either willing to be whiped or they were
being deceived and intimidated. To the
Malays they said, "DAP will ruin
Islam and will fight for premiership.
" To the Chinese they said ," Diana
is a Malay. She won't do anything for
the Chinese. Mah is a Chinese." The
price is higher cost of living. GST is
for what and for whom ?
I know that PM Najib is not happy with
Rosmah's joy ride too. It was too much
and too far. He has to harness his close
advisors to set up a defense mechanism,
to turn what is illegal to be legal.
India and Korea had put the past
Ministers into jail.
Many government servants were asked to
resign for using public property for
personal use. They did. I can't say how
many had ended up in jail.
The arch enemy is growing up. The
peasants will rise when the price of
rubber dives down. If Najib lost the
support of the FELDA populace and other
displaced Malays Malaya will end up as
another Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria or
Egypt. Fiery hatred that made the enemy
sodomized the corpse of Ghadafi and
hanged Saddan Hussein. Israel hunted the
Nazis to their graves in South America.
I sense a great hatred when the words
PIGGY, HIPPO and others are given to
Rosmah. It offended me as well. I fear
for Najib, not because of the Rosmah's
crisis, but I was told by the history
and the past events that had happened
Rosmah using the government plane is one
thing, but people relate it to the
burden of taxation to be paid on her
lavishness. Dr Asmah is not a normal
person, she is a doctor, much brighter
than Rosmah. Wasn't there a government's

RADIO CALL SIGN - SUFFIXES
I did not ask for 9M2AR. It was awarded
to me by the Telecom department. I
learned later that the authority usually
try to give suffixes that are acronym to
a name, AR for Abdul Rahman, TJ for
Thiam Joo and SL for Sunny Lai. I would
accept any call assigned happily with a
great pride of being a ham. A few did
request their own suffixes. It was not
an offense to do so.
In those days the number of hams were
small. Two alphabet suffixes were
sufficient. Only the club stations and
repeaters were assigned with three
alphabet suffixes; 9M2TTC , 9M2PMC,
9M2REC and 9M2PIC. 9M2RGL and 9M2RKK
were repeater call signs. The prefixes
9M2, 9M6 and 9M8 remain as regional
At times we made jokes at each other
calling 9M2RJ as Raja Jepun and 9M2EG as
Ekor Gajah. It has never been an issue.
As in many other things size do create
problems. An obese had been rejected by
airline because there was no single seat
for a very large person. And people used
to say that 'fire, water and wind are
friends when they are small, and become
your vicious foe when they are big'. As
the ham size grew in a small country
like our Peninsular Malaya, the first
problem is the allocation of call signs.
the 2 alphabet suffixes were enough for
676 persons, starting with 9M2AA to
Today the ham population has blown up to
nearly 20000 which is more than for AAA
to ZZZ. Some senior hams are driving for
a few millions to open up a new area for
economic development, namely a radio
There are hams who could not be bothered
of whatever calls assigned and others
are very demanding, thinking that
amateur radio is the absolute right of
everyone including the criminals. One

not the only person who pressed for the
condition as a prerequisite for them to
sit for the Morse test.
"There are too many complaints,"
an officer said."They don't want
call having a letter I because INDIA
would be mentioned." How could
racism exist in amateur radio ?
ASTRA was formed on the racial basis.
Now some are pulling in the Royalty,
UMNO Dato's and lawyers with some hidden
intents. There seem to be the
development of classes of status in ham
Some hams do believe that there shall be
reserved call signs with suffixes like
GOD, SEX, and MAD. 9W2GOD had been
assigned and it was a disturbing call to
many Muslim hams in the country.
Fortunately the saga ended when the
owner of the call passed away at a young
age, not carrying the GOD suffixes. It
was changed before he died.
Yet the cold war still continue. Hams
are still fighting for the 2 letter
suffixes. To people like me it does not
make sense. To those who tell the
authority that they would not strive for
an A license if they are not promised
with the two alphabet suffixes, I would
say good luck with a wide smile from
cheek to cheek.
Wouldn't it be nice for the MCMC to bid

DREAMING WITH ASB
The ASB dividend
for 2014 is downed from 7.70 to 7.50.
Would I complain about it ? NO. Those
people were doing the work for me and I
didn't do anything at all. It helps a
little for the rates, insurance and
other annual commitments are rising and
the cost of living is climbing. It is
common that when economy is bad agencies
are rising the prices up and dividends
are being pushed down.
The best of the
ASB was when Khalid was in charge. He is
always generous as he was before.
For annual rates
and donation to the local mosque to be
paid is about RM5K. Without the ASB I
might die of starvation and the house
will be forfeited by the local
authority. I have to thank to those who
created the saving scheme. In fact I
expected a much lower return because of
what happen to our country, the poor
management of funds and the lavish
spending for political survival.
My car need some
repair, estimated RM1K. I have been
waiting for a radio friend to pay me a
loan of RM500 to ease my burden. He
promised payment within a week but it

WHAT'S IN THE PERKASA
The Chinese has realized that Kung Fu
alone is no match for Western weapons.
Heavy investment in technology and
education is making China a super power
today. So was Melaka, conquered by a
handful of people from Europe. What
could Keris do to fight the enemy ? By now
Perkasa should realize that strength
does not lie in the size, keris or big
mouth. Israel is a small country but the
Jews can control almost the whole world.
If in the eyes of PERKASA the Malays are
losing everything, it should stare hard
at UMNO. UMNO has been running the
country all along since independent.
What has happened to the Malays and what
sort of Malays they are yielding ? Do
they expect the garbage hunters, drug
pushers, liar, cheaters and robbers to
be 'TUAN' ? They can't even run the
national feedlot properly. Mahathir did
not find his bread business easy to run.
I found Ibrahim Ali's warning and
threatening the Chinese as very
offensive and disturbing. He called the
Chinese to keep stocks of food. For what
purpose ? To declare war on them just
because they were asking for equal right
and opportunity ? It was a dumb and
One of the best things Ibrahim Ali and
the Perkasa members could have done was
to ensure the flood victims do not die
of starvation. Yet we saw one UMNO man
in Johore chased a Chinese who was
giving away food stuff to the victims.
This very guy should call all the Malays
to quit working in Chinese firms and
shops, don't but supplies from Chinese
wholesalers or retailers. He should
Ibrahim should have known why the Malays did
not vote for him.
Strength lies in the brain, not the
Keris. Brains need nurtured by protein.
But protein is very expensive due to the
high cost of living. And the Malays just
couldn't care less about brain
development as much as they did not care
much about science and mathematic
education. Did UMNO and PERKASA ever
discuss mental development ? Nay, they
prefer to entertain big towkeys and
businessmen, discuss money and
privatization, development of
properties, cutting trees on hill tops.
Among the worst lots are educational
administrators and policy makers. It is
sad to see them carrying despotic traits
in them. They, not only shove off ideas
on the policy they created, but also
threatened of distant transfer or
disciplinary actions. When met with
failures they blame their subordinates.
Failed education caused dropouts and
joblessness. Do they ever compute the
number of Malay students who became wild
and involved in crimes ? Ibrahim Ali
should have known the figures very well.
Will that be shown in the Keris ?
There are at least three basic parts
that are vital to the Malays; brain,
knowledge and skill. They are to be
deployed constructively and wisely. For
every planning they must try to interact
with the other communities. In a nation
building all Malaysians must unite and
work side by side.
The home of the Keris is in the museum.
And Ibrahim Ali should go jogging or
doing weight lifting, and take a run at
least 15 kilometers a day and show of
his silat some time. I can assure him
that if he can do 20 km a day
all the Chinese will bow on him, and
show him great respect. And he
should know that if the Malays cannot
become TUAN, it is the UMNO that is to
be blamed. Not the Chinese. Else Ibrahim
could join ISIS to gain military skill.
We don't have place for extremism here.

Palestinian lands sold to the Jews. The

voters to win an election while they are
dragging the coming Malay generations to
poverty and landlessness ?

that much, it shows that the highest
form of mentality the dedicated UMNO

not for 4 hours.

WITH OBAMA ON CHRISTMAS DAY
When Najib is in Hawaii for a vacation,
the local UMNO cyber trooper published a
picture of Najib navigating a boat at
the flood scene and another said Najib
is in Hawaii to do a job for his
As usual bodies of intelligence work
hard to sniff the reason for his visit
and having a tee with Obama on the
Christmas Day. They would come up with
several hypothesis first and try to
confirm any of those by following
I would surmise the visit as part of
struggling for survival. Biden and a few
other Americans were attacking him on
human right and what he is doing to
Secondly, the vicious attack on him by
Mahathir and other UMNO members is
destabilizing his position. The
declining ringgit and the heavier burden
faced by 1MDB could put him in

economic blunder that can put him away. Mahathir's words is very scary "
somebody would go to jail ".
Remember, Obama was a lawyer. Locally he
seek the help of Shafiee. He has to
appeal for help from Obama.
Najib is not worried about the flood because
Malaysia has prepared for such
calamities and had organized the
manpower very well. His son is around
with the flood victims. He has all the
people to take care of the situation. He
can depend on those people under him. Adnan is there to monitor and to
command. And Mahyuddin says "I am
You cannot force other people to think
like you. Bung would prefer the leader
to be with the rakyat during the
catastrophe. Many world leaders would go
home from any international meeting.
But the people of Kuantan permit Najib to do
what he likes.

Christmas to all Christians. In many
parts of Peninsular Malaysia 2015 is a
gloomy Christmas. We have not seen the
sun for several days. The rain drops do
not seem to end. Everyone is scarred
that flood might come to the West Coast.
Malaysia calamities have been
politicized. If it happens in a state
ruled by the opposition party, UMNO
would capitalize it as the wrath of God
for not voting the ruling parties. If it
happens in the BN ruled states they
would say 'without UMNO the Malays will
die, washed away by the flood'. Those
words sound ridiculous but they are real
month ago there was a rumor that the
world will be without sun for three
days. To the believers that the world is
flat, it means the sun would not raise.
To the scientific populace, the earth
would stop rotating for 72 hours. It is
a sign of the end of the world. Luckily
it did not turn out that way. The holy
day for the Christian will still be at
least three days without the sun.
and rain is not something to be fear of.
But the horror is the flood. It robbed
belongings and movable properties, and
even lives. If nature decides to send
it, the most powerful nation with
sophisticated technology wouldn't be
able to stop it.
economist used to say calamities and
natural disasters and diseases were to
balance the world population to be
equate with the amount of resources for
a living. If nature has that sense we
would expect the world population to be
stable and almost at a static point.
Every 5 to 10 years millions will die of
natural catastrophes. But it did not
happen that way. Less and less of human
death at each catastrophe. They learned
how to survive. Death is simpler by
killing, murder and war.
ever imagine our world without sun ?
What if we wake up the next 24 hours and
see darkness and later told that our sun
has vanished, without a trace ? Our
earth will filled with hums of mantras,
hymns, and prayers of all languages
while America says "Lets build
artificial sun and light the earth again"
using energy of earth magnetic field to
power the light by beaming it to the
huge light vehicles in the sky. In the
meantime half of the living things begin
to die and new specie emerges
independent of the sun light source.
switched off my air-conditioning while
driving because it was too cold. My home
electric fans are not used. I have to
boil water for my wife to bath. This
morning, my wife did not want to wake up
for her dialysis. I wore a jacket to the
extreme weather and bad atmosphere the
poor suffer more. Wealthy people escaped
haze and pollution by leaving the
country and return when situations are
back to normal. They have jets and
helicopters to escape earth quake. They
get the clean water supplies when the
normal folks experience dry taps. The
Muslims never stopped praying for the
better "Oh God, let not the flood
worsen. Forgive all our sins, for we are
only human..." None will say 'Vote
for UMNO and the flood will perish and
the sun will shine again tommorrow".
morning I went to Majid Nasi Tomato. It
was drizzling. The rice of the extra
large pot was almost finished. "Every
rainy day the sale is good,"
said the restaurant owner.

without sun. I am pretty scared.

HITS BACK AT MAHATHIR ?
would not stand back and doing nothing
at Mahathir's agression. He has Shafiee
and Patail behind him, as lawyers and
advisors. As usual he will use all
available avenues to fight back. The
main weapon is money. Wouldn't Najib
paid to the foreign journalists to hit
back at Mahathir ? He awarded Dr Asmah
and went to see the man who put him
there. The moves were expected. As I
have said, Pak Lah was willing to step
down but Najib will never want to do so.
"Try me if you can..."
Najib would tell Mahathir. As Mahathir
said that United States does not have a
high moral value to teach Malaysia what
to do, he too did not have a good record
during his tenure of office.
I see no
way that Najib can be put away however
bad he is. No matter what happen to the
economy and how much sufferings the
people have, he will remain in power. It
is not due to the black magic of Rosmah
but it is the setup of UMNO and the
political system of BN.
won't pay people to create sex story on
Najib. But I won't be surprise if such a
story pop up. Najib knows better and
takes precautions to ensure he will not
become a victim. He has no choice but to
take Rosmah along with him to free
himself from such a trap. Nevertheless
we could be sure that the anti-Najib
group are discussing all avenues to
bring the Prime Minister to his heel.
will be reading more foreign articles
that will praise Najib and scorn
