Lombok. My maid was from this island. I had work
very hard to obtain the work permit for she came
direct to me only through her local agent. Her
second medical checkup is due in October but I
had to send her home because my wife passed
away. It was folly of me not to take her phone
number and the detail of her abode.
Somehow I had
made a promise to my wife's brothers and sisters
that I will take them to Lombok for a joy trip.
My budget was just enough for four persons. I
was taken aback when another one wants to join
in. I can't afford to add another RM2K plus. I
can only offer to pay half of the tour fare. I
told them our purpose are to enjoy the beauty of
the island. I love lost contact with my maid.
Rusli and his
neighbor also shown their interest in Lombok and
care to join us. Altogether there will be 10
persons, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Lombok on
the coming 28th July.
Yesterday I tried
my luck and dialed the Lombok agent who sent her
to me. He answered my phone but he had a hard
time recollecting who I am and who my maid was.
This evening he sent a message telling me my
maid's number. I sent SMS to my maid telling her
of our visit and asked her what does she want.
"I want a hand
phone to be given to my son," she said after I
dialed her number. "How many of you are coming ?
" She asked. "Six," said I.
"My house is too
small, Pak to accommodate all the six."
"No. We will be
staying in Jayakarta Hotel."
I emailed the
hotel expressing my desire to book one more room
for just one day. I will do the booking through
my travel agent tomorrow, after which I will go
to look for a hand-set for her kid.
I began to feel
God's providence day by day. Many good things
seem to be showing. As a layman I can sleep
better than my Prime Minister. I enjoy playing
fireworks with my grand children, and I myself
was having fun with sprinklers.

IS ROSMAH'S FACTOR

there was no FLOM then. Of course we cannot tell
what went on in their home and what they talked
to each other. We only heard the story from
Deepak, the carpet seller. It was better for us
to see and hear from Rosmah, herself. Surely she
spoke a lot in the media. We were not wrong to
say she wanted to be in the limelight in the
management of the country and in some she acted
like a foreign minister or a Prime Minister when
she talked to Vladimir Putin. And she said that

when Thailand and Singapore would come to know
of the money going into Najib's personal

single cent but instead gave it to UMNO then he
had to show which branch and which persons got
the money. Mahathir's questions to the UMNO top

raise the angpow to RM2 each. There were only
about 60 children only who came. As I had
expected family members and friends only came to
visit in the evening. Over all it is a merry and
enjoyable Hari Raya.
But Najib and
Rosmah remain a stigma in my mind. How could
they live with money going into their accounts.
They are hunting for those who leaked the
information, which was very wrong and sinful
indeed. And they are trying to play with
religion and God to save themselves.

In fact if you have been with other Muslims you
will realize that the Malays are not the best as
they think they are. The top leaders especially

ARE NOT PASSPORT TO IMMUNITY
A thief is
a thief. There is no special treatment
regardless of his race and creed, and his title
and position. There is no different in stealing
hand phones and 1Mdb money. The only different
is a layman stealing RM2 from a mosque was
jailed for 2 years and the big time robbers are
helped to escape by command of power.

chased him out of the country and we said

seem to have pride to let the world knows that
we too can plundered big money and snatch
whatever that come our way, handbags, hand
phones and money from religious collections. If
we are angry by the beating of the Malay thieves
at Low Yatt we are telling the others that the
Malays could not be touched at whatever crimes
they indulge in, including the cow-condo and the
see Low Yatt theft is almost equal to Putrajaya
in principle though the magnitude of one is much
more colossal. Being a Malay is not a passport
to immunity and free from any kind of
punishment. The Malays can do no wrong and UM NO
can do no wrong are of an identical maxim.
a Chinese is caught stealing and robbing a Malay
he too should be facing similar treatment.
Malaysians are unfortunately
obsess with racial sentiment. Aware of this I
refrained from an immediate punishment on my
Chinese student at their wrongdoings. If a Malay
were to hit a Chinese there is always a question
"Is he punishing with the good intent to teach
and educate him or is he punished because of
mere racial hatred ? " I informed the parent.
The parents were usually happy and allow me even
to administer corporal punishment. One student
told his father in Hokien that he was punished
because he was a Chinese. The father asked
him,"How many Chinese in the class ? " When he
answered there were five the parent shouted at
him, "Why the teacher punish you but not all the
others. You must be a bad boy." His father
smashed him. That was one remained in my memory.
The Malays in Low Yatt was
shown stealing stuffs. They must have been
robbing other Malays as well. They may be doing
worst thing to their parents. Their hands must
be cutoff .

WE ARE NOT
Are you a rebel ?
I am not. Most of us are not though we strongly
challenge our leaders at their follies.
Politicians are of the habit of insulting our
intelligence. When we are told not to believe
the news on social media we just asked ourselves
a simple question, "If the news and accusations
are lies why don't Najib sue them ? After all
Najib have been suing a lot of people." Many of
us are waiting for Sarawak Report and the Wall
Street Journal to be sued by Najib. Any other
actions will be deemed as efforts of spinning
and twisting facts.
We know that we
won't win the fight because we are not in
command of the resources, mainly the judiciary
and the police. We don't have the money to buy
fake guys to confuse and fabricate evidence. Yet
we say Najib lied to us because he has been
lying all the way through his teeth, promises
which were not fulfilled and lying about the
cash in BSI. And conclude that he is lying to
the people who are now willing to die for him.
Of course 1Mdb is
a big thing for us because the flare falls on
everyone of us. If Najib could not pay the huge
loan for more than 5 years, how is he going to
settle it within a short period ? He has to
burden the people by cutting subsidies and tax
them. Do you think he can settle the debt ? I
don't think so. The money collected will be used
for something else that benefit him and the
party. The suspicion that 1Mdb was channeled for
personal use was not without a base.
The strategy is
to make people dispel the social media. The
cyber troopers. The ministers and the ongoing
road show is telling people the same thing.
There is no
reason for WSJ to oust Najib and to publish news
on the money that going into Najib and Rosmah's

WORK VIA INTERNET
I used to watched
private security TVs from my laptop with VB
codes, attaching the winsock facility to the
algorithm. And looked
into data in people's routers. That was just for
fun. If I would have been serious in peeping
into public computer systems I would have
just to learn a little bit more. I realized
then younger people could comprehend numbers
they saw on the screens. I knew what I did was
immoral and wrong. That did not make me a
criminal yet unless I went into hacking.
If a stupid
person like me had reached some level of the
peeping into the secrecy of others, I am sure a
big number of the young generations must have
reached higher level and able to decipher
and to jumble binaries. Data that pass through
cables can always be hijacked or captured. But
they are usually jumbled up into various forms.
Either one develops the decoder or just steal
I would have been
a criminal if I were jobless. So were many
others. I can't say how many steal information
The moving data
in a cable can be read even by the satellite. It
was done in Falkland and Iraq's war. There used
to be a gadget sold freely to capture phone data
by attaching it to the cable. But the wafer's
maker had a portion of spying circuit in the
processor that could send back every bit of data
to the main bank in a respective nation. The
solution is to self-develop the chips.
Right now spying
is mainly done on servers. To do so on home PCs
there must be a spy software planted into the
computer. Software developers are successful in
planting the Malware by making you download
movies, pictures or attractive applications.
Free software like Whatsup, Skype and Browsers
can do fantastic things on home PCs.
I would never
encourage government agencies to link their
machines to the internet. All computers that
contain data have to be offline and independent.
I have a firm
believe that foreign nations have stolen tons of
important data from our government, and to have
known many truths that we are trying to hide and
denied. It has a great influence on our economy.

Traditionally we have been giving money to kids
who come to our house during the Hari Raya. It
is them who create the happy and glorious
atmosphere and making the spirit alive and
joyful. In those years the average was 20 cents
but today we increase it to RM2.
packet is something new to the Malays. We adopt
the Chinese culture to be part of our own. Last
year my wife was still alive and she said that
the number of visiting kids were fewer. It made
me sad. Even beggars were few. I hope to see
more beggars and children this year. Beggars
mean beggars of all races and religions, young
disturbed me when recently some religious people
were telling us that giving money to children is
not Islamic. As someone posted it on

good to people of all religions and races.

MESS IN MY SHACK
This year I
manage to make my shack a little less messy. Now
I can allow ham visitors to enter my radio room.
I hope to complete clearing the mess after the
festive season by doing an inch a day. But the
cobwebs are still hanging. It was left there on
purpose. I want the spiders to have some food.
I have three
power supplies. The Diamond is not used. It is
for a backup. I used Hammax for my HF and VHF.
My FR7900 is mainly for monitoring and
occasionally carried it out as a mobile station.
The main rig for my HF use is ICOM 756. The
backup rig is FT857D. Two laptops are ;aid on
the table, an Acer and a Macbook Pro. The former
is used to write blog and the later for
surfacing and downloading and watching movies.
At least they look a bit neat in arrangement.
I have two
colossal equipments unused, a washing machine
and a mini-bar. Both take up space. I don't know
what to do with them and with my books. I wish
God would instill in me with some excellent idea
how to get rid of them. They robbed the space
for my dress. In the meantime I hang my dress on
I try as much
things in my room as possible. When my daughter
comes back she would keep those in different
places and whenever I need to use them I would
not be able to find the tools.
One of the most
organized hams in the country is a currently
sickly Eshee, 9M2FK. Eshee or Ismail Razak has a
kind of a reference book arrange the items in
alphabetical order and the location indicator of
the items. The boxes where he kept his tools and
equipments are well arranged. It facilitates a
quick search. I can't cope with his discipline
even how hard I tried. Further more when age is
catching up the body and mind are getting rusty.
I am captured by sheer indolent.

breath a little looking at my shack, at least
from today until some time when Ramadan is over.

TO PAY THE DEBT
Restructuring plan of a debt ridden
corporation is not new. It was done in the
United States in 1932 and 1957. UNCTAD laid down
the path to help such corporation. The
restructuring is aimed at generating cash flow
to pay the debt and the interest. Cabinet
ministers bought the idea.
What do the
laymen like us know ? We were asked to believe
that it will work. We were not told that it was
a struggle to raise fund which finally ended up
in borrowing from IPIC and Anbar. MOF said it
was not a loan but part of 1MDB asset has to go
IPIC. 1MDB is to work with GLC, TNB, MMC

name Edra Global Energy.

GST. He has the psychological department to
appease the people. "Fuel hike is for the good
and benefit of the people", "GST is good for
you", "If you don't like Malaysia go and live
somewhere else". And Najib used 1Mdb money to
build mosque to appease the people.
A million a
day when reaching 2.7 billion a year will move
out of the country just for paying interest. How
much foreign cash does 1Mdb brought in into
Malaysia ? It is different selling a two ringgit
land to Tabung Haji to selling it to a British
firm for 20 million ringgit. One does not
increase the wealth of our nation while the
other does. This hari raya; if you son give you

grandsons, the amount of money circulated in
your house is RM200. If a towkey gives you

after. And that's the reason people are saying "show
us the money". And many believe part of the
1Mdb]s money went into somebody's pockets. When
WSJ and SR narrated it went into Najib and
Rosmah, the related banks did not deny it
immediately as it was a serious accusation
involving a Prime Minister and his wife. Both

Najib is a

That won't make people lose sight on Najib and

not to fight but to find redemption in ways
people can except without putting the couple in

denounce the worldly temptations, lust and
avarice, spend part of their time to learn about
heaven and hell, asking God for forgiveness and
indulge themselves in social work.

are putting pressure on the people, which will
be met with an equal force against you. By now
Rosmah should have known that she has enemies
all over. They hated her, not just for nothing.
People did not show similar feeling on the
previous Prime Ministers' wives.
The man who had allegedly
transferred RM2 million into the account of
Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and later denied
working for the prime minister and wife had, in
fact, travelled extensively with the couple

The trips, posted on his Facebook account,
coincided with trips made by Prime Minister
Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Rosmah.
Yesterday, Sarawak Report said Roslan deposited
RM2 million into Rosmah's account in Affin Bank
Berhad in eight deposits within 2½ months
earlier this year.
His details, including
phone number and occupation, were also published
by the blog. Roslan was said to be a personal
assistant attached to the Prime Minister's
However, when Malaysiakini called the number,
he denied working for the prime minister and his
Sarawak Report said today although the
Facebook page was deactivated soon after
yesterday's expose, other social-media users had
saved his photographs and details.
The pictures were compiled and the blog
compared his trips with that of Najib and
His profile picture on WhatsApp appeared to
show the same person as the Roslan in the
"What the many, many pictures uploaded by
this Roslan Sohari onto his Facebook site show
is that this Malaysian has lived a life of
travel luxury over the past year, hopping around
the world’s capitals and staying at only the
very best of hotels," the blog said.
"Intriguingly, all his snapshots from
different parts of the world on different dates
perfectly match the official travel arrangements
for the man who was cited as his boss on the
Facebook site before it was removed.
"That is, the Prime Minister Najib Razak."
It said that Roslan has accompanied Najib and
his wife Rosmah on these trips but on occasions,
he had been part of only Rosmah's entourage.
Another piece of evidence that disputes his

The allegations against Rosmah come in the
wake of last week's expose by Sarawak Report and

million (RM2.67 billion) was moved among
government agencies, banks and entities linked

everything in Malaysia is under PMO. It is safer

because he had not been telling the truth many
times before. We would still remember his denial
of meeting Saiful before Anwar was charged and
later admitted that he did. He lied in the GE13,
the promises that were never fulfilled. He lied
about the cash transfer into BSI. And he will
always continue lying.
For PM to accuse the people to
topple the government is indeed wrong because
people still want the current government to
proceed with the new leadership under Mahyuddin.
Keeping money in Malaysia was
the only choice for fast withdrawal for various
purposes, some may be devious. For local
corruption cash withdrawal from local banks were
seen before during the general election.
The questions still hanging
are about the big debt and high interest. 1MDB
cannot afford to pay them and Najin has to
resort to amassing money from the public to pay
the perpetual debt. Why must he still hang on to

Billions pumped into Najib’s accounts, 1MDB
Investigations into debt-ridden 1Malaysia

uncovered billions of ringgit channelled to
the personal accounts of Prime Minister
Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the
Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and
Sarawak Report reported. Both are quoting from documents from the
1MDB probe that is being carried out by
the Malaysian government, with Sarawak
Report claiming that the
Attorney-General was also aware of the
The documents show that US$700
million (RM2.67 billion) was moved among
government agencies, banks and entities
linked to 1MDB and finally ending up in
the prime minister's personal accounts
in five separate deposits, WSJ said.
It said that the largest transactions
were deposits of US$620 million and
another one for US$61 million in March
2013, two months before the general
election was held.
However, Putrajaya has denied the
reports, saying Najib has not made use
of any public funds.
"The prime minister has not taken any
funds for personal use,” a Putrajaya
“The prime minister’s political
opponents, unwilling to accept his
record or the facts, continue to try to
undermine him with baseless smears and
rumours for pure political gain.”
Meanwhile, an 1MDB spokesman said,
referring to the transfers into Najib’s
account: “1MDB is not aware of any such
transactions, nor has it seen any
documents to this effect.”
The spokesman cautioned that doctored
documents have been used in the past to
discredit 1MDB and the government.
Sarawak Report said RM42 million had
gone into Najib's accounts from SRC
International Sdn Bhd, the Finance
Ministry-owned company that had taken a
RM4 billion loan from the
Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP).
"The money taken from SRC
International is a particularly shocking
revelation, because this was money lent
by the public pension fund KWAP and
never accounted for," the report said.
The Finance Ministry had said
previously SRC invested the funds in
Gobi Coal & Energy Ltd, a
Mongolian-based company, but provided no
other details than that.
A director of SRC, Nik Faisal Ariff
Kamil, the report said, had power of
attorney over Najib’s accounts,
according to documents acquired from the
The latest transaction, the reports
said, was in February this year. The
documents show that SRC International
had transferred RM10 million into an
account under the name of “Dato’Sri Mohd
Najib Bin Hj Abd Razak” at AmPrivate
Bank in Kuala Lumpur.
WSJ also reported that SRC and the
bank refused to comment on the matter.
1MDB is currently the subject of
inquiries by a number of authorities,
including the auditor-general, Bank
Negara, police and the bipartisan Public
Najib, who is also finance minister
and chairs 1MDB's advisory board, has
come under severe criticism in recent
months over a number of issues,
including that of 1MDB which has amassed
RM42 billion in debts after just six
years of it being set up.
Yesterday, the prime minister
admitted that he was depressed by the
rumours linking him to 1MDB's

would not use public funds to bail out a
state-owned company. – July 3, 2015.

won't live long enough to see what
will happen to this couple but Mahathir may. His masterly
corrupting technique may make many receivers
happy but a few will be extremely agitated. It
will be these few who will make sure Najib
will pay for deceit. Najib does not leave
Malaysians with a high income and wealthy
when he retired but he will leave the people in greater
poverty, bad economy and becoming slaves to Goldman
Sachs. For these he will never be forgiven. He will be severely punished. A citizen commented in TMI
that he wants to see Najib rot in prison. It
was evasive and insolent. That's the degree
of anger and hatred.

Win or lose we somewhat could estimate the
severity of his sufferings. Of course the
world politics do determine his fate.
greatest sins is he forces God to side him
by using the 1MDB's controversial money to
build mosque mainly to get the support for
the alleged crime committed. You may ask what are
the crimes ?
One of the crimes is to borrow
money from a terrorist, Goldman Sachs, at a
high interest rate. He will have to defend
himself that he never used public fund to
pay the loan and the running interest. To do
so is the criminal breach of trust.
Government had been building mosques
everywhere since independent without the use
of the fund under question and
investigation. His tricky intent to use God
to silent the Muslims is a sinister attempt.
Secondly he has been using
scapegoats to deny a fault. He blamed Bank
Negara on BRIM. He blamed the civil servant
when caught lying to parliament. Kandasamy
said he was the fault in 1MDB fiasco. Now
Najib is manipulating with Xavier to say all
accusations by SR and the Edge were false.
He will be drilled by the people in court
and he will say, "I am too old to remember.
I did not do all those things. THEY did it."
The Jews still jailed
those Nazis who murdered thousands of them,
hunting the murderers deep in South American
jungles even with new faces and names. They
dig and dragged back to Israel.
People are angry because
they continued to be duped and treated like
kids, just because they are not supported by
cops, judges and lawyers. So far Malaysians
do not keep vengeance against those who
oppressed them. By themselves they will
never go militant, unless being pushed to
the end endlessly by the top UMNO leaders
who prefer to fight and defend the
better for Najib to give someone else to
take charge of finance. When Tan Siew Sin
was the finance minister and Tengku was the
Prime Minister nobody plundered our national
coffer and we had had so much surplus. The
government could create so much jobs for the
people. Najib is figured to have bad intent
holding the post. Indeed he was with the
1Mdb and the rest. He left a suspicion that
he was using the fund for his own interest.
All the planning and
thinking by the propaganda unit and other
advisors trying to right the wrong is the
responsibility of the Prime Minister. So far
it looks their planning is ruining him,
painting an evil picture of him. And people
do not forget how Anwar was framed and
Altantuya was killed. If the mentality of
Jewish vengeance germinate in the coming
generations those involved in lying and
deception will be convicted and severely
punished, even at
their dawn age.
That's the future, the
fate that may befell Najib and Rosmah in the

FRAMING MAHATHIR USING FOREIGNERS
decide to frame and set up Mahathir by bringing
2 names into the limelight, Xavier and Suffi. It
looks like Xavier is planted and even his trip
to Thailand was planned. Suffi was expected to
walk into the trap. This is how the story goes.
While Xavier was
in Thailand and was arrested Suffi went to see
him several times requesting him to temper with
1Mdb data. Sufii is a man in charge of Che Det's
blog. Therefore it was Mahathir who stole the
data and changed it to release to Sarawak
Do you buy the
Think for a
minute. Xavier was said to be an IT man. Then he
was said to be the manager of 1Mdb. He stole the
data and was asked to leave the company with the
award of 15 million. He went to Thailand and was
arrested as he was said to ask 1Mdb to pay more
million, a kind of extortion. Sufii went to see
Xavier requesting for the change in data which
Xavier admitted to the Thai authority that he did.
Wait a minute.
Does it make sense ?
First Xavier was
trying to extort or blackmailing 1Mdb. Why was
he wanting to blackmail the company ? And why
the 15 million was paid to him ? It is not only
confusing but it does not make sense at all. And
it is very illogical and absurd. The build up of
the events by the consultant to set up Mahathir
was too rushy. And obviously they were using the
1Mdb's money. Even then 3/5 months ago
1MDB should have jumped to say such and such
areas were tempered and false. They didn't. They
employed the 3rd person to say it months
later.As a reader put it they were waiting for
the Thai police to say it was false when they
were suppose to know on the day it was published
and to point out the tainted parts.
The main aim is
to make all the UMNO members to dismiss The Edge
and Sarawak Report. These are the people who can
put Najib away. In the another roadshow soon
UMNO members will be briefed on the role of
Sufii in tempering the stolen data. Mahathir
will be blamed for the Sarawak Report in as much
as he was blamed for the decline of ringgit.
If those social
media were liars, Najib would have not lied in
the parliament about the Cayman's fund in BSI
Singapore. Since when Sufii went to see Xavier
to temper with the data ? People do not forget
that Jho Lo said he was not the guy who made
decision but Najib. For every exposure published
they were no immediate debunk if they already
knew about Sufii and Xavier. They waited for
What did they do
during those periods ? Go for vacation and enjoy
the Artic atmosphere ? Going to parties and
having fun the whole 3 or 4 months ? Obviously
they teamed up to squeeze their brain for the

detail on Xavier's movements because I can't
simply guessed his solid movements. But the
story told to us by 1Mdb is clear enough.
questioned why Xavier is to be charged in
Thailand and not somewhere else, when the first
news was he was to be extradite. Some remembered
very well of China's request to India to arrest
the Tibetans who ran protest in the
subcontinent. The Indian obliged.
It is interesting
to note about Xavier being paid 15 million. Then
he asked for more and he was accused of
extortion and blackmailing. Mind us that he was a director. Does
a director type and keep the data in the server
? Don't 1Mdb has an IT man to do it ? Think
about it for a minute.
Xavier was said
to ask for 15 millions. Is the amount big for
Najib ? What is a hundred million compared to 15
? "Pay him to admit the data was tempered."
articles in the Social media, people wanted to
know which parts of the data was tempered and
what were the original ? The consultants will
have to ask for a little more time to figure out
and more payment has to be made.
UMNO members have
to think and not to straight away believe what
Maslan, Zahid or the proganda unit is and will
be telling them. They have been told by the MOF
itself of the huge amount of interest to be paid
minus the loan. The amount is very scary. And
they have to know where Najib is going to get
the money from to pay the interest and the loan.
How much is being paid monthly or yearly ? What
is the role of Jho Lo ? How much did he give to
Rosmah's son for the property ?
facing his own sin miserably now attempting to
eat him bit by bit.
Mahathir is a
stingy man. If he isn't he would have bought the
IGP. And one would wonder how much he had paid
to Xavier to distort the data. This Mamak lose
to Najib's propaganda because Najib is willing
to pay at any price and he is scared to spend
even a few hundred ringgit.
struggle with his sin.
And UMNO members
should use their brain themselves and opened
their eyes to observe Rosmah and Deepak and
Rosmah and Jho Lo. If God's willing they will see
through the wall. After all people above 60
should lie and rest and prepare for the next
world. Let the young people take over. Never
underestimate the younger generations. We have
seen them in Azmin and Guan Eng.

PEOPLE ALL THE TIME
there should stop thinking that people are fool.
People have been reading about disinformation,
moles and all other dirty arts of cheating and
deceptions. When they get away with it they
thought they have achieved great victory.
Despite they jailed Anwar, murdering Altantuya
and winning a few by-elections people know the
game the played and whether Anwar was guilty and
who ordered the bombing of Altantuya.

bank, now they are trying to say the data stolen
from Petro-Saudi was tempered. The responses of
the people are as follows
composition of the Propaganda Unit and all the
government agencies to repaint the real events
does not show they are smart enough. Public
resources are wasted and the economy continues
to dwindle. The question is how much was paid to
PGI to say it was tempered ? Who hired PGI ?
There is no
point in the restructuring of the 1MDB if there
is no real profit. Selling 1 hundred ringgit
property for 100 million to government controlled
body is not the real profit. If it is to pay
back to Goldman Sachs it is just taking the
money from the people. Borrowing from a local
bank to pay a debt is not solving the problem
We know that when there is
leak of money movement into Jho Lo's account the
first thing was to investigate who stole the
information ? That's the behavior of the crooks.
What was the real reason for formulating OSA ?
And it was similar to the money for NFC being
used for something else ?
That's the reason for saying
'I don't take even a single cent because it can
do nothing. But I take billions because it does
wonders." You can pay experts to work for you,
to pay for disinformation and used the troopers
to attack on the truth as false.
Then they call people to be
patriotic as if Malaysians and the opposition
members are not. Who in this world want to be
patriotic to Rosmah Mansor ? Or any particular
person ? I am willing to die for my country, not
for Najib, Rosmah or even Lim Kit Siang or Hadi
What has the Thai police to do
with 1Mdb ? How could they come to know and
arrest Xavier ?
Don't you ever smell
that it all started when they hired a team to
trace the Swiss IT man for fear he could cause
much more damage ? When they traced that he was
in Thailand our government requested Thailand to
arrest him and at the same time 1Mdb was ready
with denial and disinformation. And now the Thai
police come to know the whole truth about Jho Lo
and other devious 1Mdb activities. Thailand is
not a fool either. There are principled people
in the Thai government who do not condoned any
hanky panky by anybody within or outside the

possible scam. The Malaysians has begun to see
the scheme to repay the huge loan and the
interests. Don't you see how the value of our
currency could be affected by 1Mdb scheme ?
Simply, by raising fake profit without any
substantive increase in productivity has the
effect of printing more cash without the backup.
What is a fake profit
then ? Selling a 2 ringgit land for 2 million to
a sibling company is a fake profit. Kickbacks
are fake profit.
It's a pity the whole force
has to camp together to change the perception of
the people, mainly the UMNO members. All the big
brains merge to distort the truth which were in
fact failed to confuse millions of small men on
the streets, some with only secondary school
education. These small brains understand the
time lapse of Najib's response to accusations
and questions, as what was done on Anwar Ibrahim.
If the whole big brains fail, Malaysians should
not be surprised. That's how we lost the Pulau
Batu Puteh, and Ghani Patail failed to bring
back the stolen jet engine. No wonder they can't
strengthened the ringgit. And more so they can't
get 90% of people's votes.
UMNO is just lucky that the
people do not organize themselves like the Jews
did. They too could have special forces to go
world wide tracking the shadows of Najib and
stationed themselves in every part of the world
and in every departments, and for a team to
pluck and encrypt data that pass through cables
deep in the ground, and jam the communication
satellites and the TV signals. It is not they
can't do it even under tight surveillance, but
they don't want the nation to be chaotic. All
they want is UMNO to be clean and stop
plundering our nation's coffer.
Even with their handsome
salaries they are fooling themselves and their
generations. Already people were kicked out of
their jobs and the fate of the civil servants
are becoming bleak. While their big mouths were
yelling Najib's economic successes the
government is finding hard to cope up with it's
employees. The money they get does not
compensate with the lost they will soon realize.

HAM RADIO A
LITTLE SMALL DEFINITIONS
In my days,1970s,
when I applied for radio amateur examinantion
(RAE) from the telecom, I was given a few sheet
of papers in which there was written a
definition of amateur radio, SOP and radio
regulations, was suppose to be the first of the
two parts of the test paper. The second part was
on the technical stuffs. I did not learnt the
hobby definition by heart and right now it is
very fuzzy in my memory. But I remember very
well the key words. Putting back together it
sounds something like this: Amateur radio is a
hobby where a licensee is permitted to
use the radio service for experimentation,
preparing for emergency service on a
specified frequency without any pecuniary
motive. Of course I may have left something
else. There are three more words that I can
remember quite well: no politics, no
business and no religion.
Though during the
communications we did not do any business, we
were interested to know the price of the
equipment used. Nobody dared to ask 'How much
? ' as it is related to money. So we went
our way to ask 'What's the damage like ?'
And the answer would be in the value of
resistance like 200 ohm or 2K ohm.
radio started with homebrew set. A single valve
transmitter is good for CW. Adding another they
created a modulator and could go on AM. When I
came in commercial rigs were available. Soon
later a linear amplifier were made to boost the
power. A linear was a term to mean power
amplifier though in its working side it may not
be in linear form.
linear seldom said they used power amplifier.
They just told at what power they transmitted.
"I am running 1 kilowatt on my 4 element yagi,"
they would say. Telling people that you are
running 100 watts or 50 watts was normal. If you
told them you are using FT DX400 and running at
150 watts it would not be a surprise to the
other party. Some 6146 rigs in pair can produce
more than a 100 watts.
Hams like to tell
stories and let their friends know the distant
stations they used to work. I would tell my
friends," I work North pole barefoot and
I got a 59+20 ." Barefoot was to mean without
external amplifier. But during my course of
communication I did not remember telling my
counterparts that I was on barefoot, instead the
power used. Unless someone were to ask me, "Are
you using a linear ? " I would have replied,
"No. Barefoot." The question was rare.
While some love
high power, others want to know at what lowest
power and to what distant a signal can go. The
best mode to test is using CW. It is easier to
copy because it it non-modulated. Modulated weak
audio would be very incomprehensible by the
language slang. They built a low power
transmitter and called it QRP. The word barefoot
is never associated with QRP.
There was no
computer then. Our knowledge was not as wide as
the people today. Today they come up with many
definitions and concepts which some are very
Greek to us. They master the hitech stuffs and
digital technologies, and the various
interfaces. If I keep on forgetting the flow of
current in the balance modulator, how could I
understand the complicated logic circuits.
I keep on using

something to UMNO and Najib.
Kedah went back to UMNO even
long before GE13 as Hadi insisted the unpopular
Azizan to be the Menteri Besar. Kedah had a

and even had employed several UMNO men in his
administration. He gave away Trengganu and now
he is about to give away Kelantan to UMNO.

base examination system. During my visit to my
old school, the vocational school, I told the

including the formation of Vocational College
which I very much dispelled with the ideas.

seeing education for both the smart and the
non-smart kids. The voluntary and the system
dropped out will mainly come from the less smart
children. There are many late developers who
only compute their future at the later age. I
was one of them, the lazy and stupid boy. It is
these dropouts who would cause social disorders
in the society. Education must also cater for
the well being of our society and therefore for
the less academically inclined kids.
PBS would close the door to
the late developers. They cannot seat for any
exam anymore as a private candidate. PBS was
only for a school candidate. They kill the
future of many people.
I also had dispel the idea of
Vocational College. The system was suppose to
take high achievers after Form 3, two years
following the secondary education and if
qualified would continue with the diploma. The
teachers were complaining because they could not
teach in-depth skill and no proper resting place
for the students after a long school hours.
To cut short, in the technical
area under Technical Division of the Ministry of
Education there are 2 types of diploma; diploma
by polytechnic and by vocational college. A
diploma student from the polytechnic has SPM

diploma student from vocational college is
without SPM and without additional mathematics.

NAJIB MUST SUE
NYT AND OTHER FOREIGN NEWSPAPERS
It is a high time
for PM Najib to sue the NYT and other foreign
newspapers that wrote about 1MDB's fiasco and
Najib's misuse of the fund for his personal
gain. Either direct or indirectly the foreign
media was saying Rosmah's son has the share of
the money. The latest it says Najib used the
money for the campaign in GE13. The exposure on
Rosmah's expenditure on handbags brought shame
to himself and the nation. The accusations were
strong enough for Najib to take legal action.
Instead he takes
action only on the local who quotes what the
foreign papers published. Why ? He knows he will
be defeated and the truth will dominate
international media. But at home he has the
judiciary on his side and the lawyers who can
twist and turn facts down. They will bark at the
foreign media at the distance.
It is more
shameful for a Malayan to hang on the Sabahans
and the Sarawakians to remain in power.
The time will
come when the FELDA settlers who were given huge
sum of money before the GE13 and probably in the
coming GE14 realize they will one day be chased
out of their houses when FELDA is taken over by
some foreign firms. It may be exposed that they
were paid by the 1MDB funds as a favor for the
secrets not only to the populace but also to

WANTS TO HIDE TOLL HIKE ?
A Muslim is
answerable to God. A government is answerable to
the people because the people pay them the
salaries. A truth is divine, a lie is a word of
that the government is hard up of money due to
the mismanagement of public funds, paying the
unnecessary huge interest to a company own by a
terrorist, Goldman Sachs. The lavish spending
and the loan were for individual comforts and
strategy to maintain perpetual power. It was an
avarice of mankind, loved by the Satan.
If Najib finds
that GST isn't enough and want the toll hike,

GANGSTERS BECOMING POLITICIANS
democratic country even a lowly gangster goon
can become a leader. A drug Kingpin has the
capacity of buying himself up. All he need to do
is to be a hypocrite and spend part of his dirty
money on the people. A gangster can easily win
an election through fraud, using the mob to
change ballot boxes. We still remember the
floating boxes found in the river. The
deployment of the rogue goons to create fear,
threatened the voters and changing and
manipulating the ballot boxes, and the extensive
use of government and public resources gave them
almost absolute advantage.

NAZRI - LOW CLASS GANGSTER
Nazri talked like a low class gangster when he
implied that he was elected by the people while the
Tengku Mahkota wasn't. Karpal Singh could have said
the same thing. Surely others are saying the same
thing too, which means Karpal and Nazri is bigger
than the King. But Karpal had to suffer just by
quoting what is in the constitution.
Nazri was not elected by the people of Malaysia nor
Malaya. He was elected by a handful of stupid people
who thought they would get all the benefit by
licking his boot. He should read what the people
commented about him. He probably thinks the whole of
Malayans like him.

MESSAGE FOR MALAYSIANS
Of late, I just voiced
out my opinion and a
reminder that people who
has been entrusted with
the responsibility to
not blame the people for
losing trust and
confidence in them, but
think of why the people
no longer have the
confidence and trust in
them. Apparently my
gentle reminder has been
met with a rather
hostile response from a
minister. If I got such
a reply, then what
chances does the rest of
the rakyat have?
You are a minister, not
a God from the heavens
who lord above
everybody. Do not think
the people of this
country exist to provide
you with position and
wealth, but the position
exists for you to serve
the people. When I voice
out, I do it as the
leader of my rakyat, on
behalf of Johoreans and
Malaysians. All I did is
to remind the leaders of
the country that they
have a responsibility to
serve the people, and
for this, I am attacked.
In the new world order,
I envision a future that
every person has a right
to voice their opinions.
However, that is not the
case in Malaysia today,
where ministers think
they are untouchable. I
am willing to be cursed
for standing up for what
is right, rather than be
loved for defending what
I am not a politician. I
am only answerable to
Allah, my Sultan and the
people of Johor. I do
not do the bidding of
some puppet-master who
pulls the strings. Johor
only has place for those
who want to serve the
people, not for those
who want to garner votes
for their own interests.
There will come a time,
when the Johorean people
must decide what is best
for us and our future
generations. Decide and
unite we will, as Bangsa
Johor, to forge our
future. United we stand
strong, divided we fall.
I stand for my rakyat,

not to topple the

it just shows your

Alhamdulillah, I have
been blessed with a
comfortable life, and I
can just live my own
life and be oblivious to
the worries of my
people, but here I am,

side. So for those

HOW POOR IS THE
POOR MALAYSIANS ?
trip to Balkan is months ahead. I may die first
before the day arrive. As usual I would make a long
preparation. In my previous trip I bought 4 pieces
of new shirts which I wore only 2. The rest I used
shirts I bought about 20 years ago. The colors and
designs that I like today may seen as stale next
week, and I won't wear them again.
During my last window shopping
there was a much discounted sale at Pacific. Each
cost less than RM50. I bought 5 pieces, enough for
the 14 day visit.
The point is not about buying
shirts but what about the unwanted ones. There were
several which I never wore, or wore once. I don't
have any more room to keep them. I decided to give
away to people whom I think is poor. Choosing and
folding some Batik and other casual T-Shirts, I put
them in a plastic bag. I placed the bag in front of
my house as it was a fine day, hoping for someone to
pick it up. Till evening it was still there.
I picked it up and put in my car,
thinking I could find someone I can give to.
This morning I drove through Jitra
on the way to Bukit Kayu Hitam to buy some
fireworks. I saw a man sweeping the road. I stopped
my car and move towards him with my bag. I told him
that I have some shirts to give away. "I don't need
them. Find someone else." I went back to my car with
frustration. In my mind even the blue collar workers
earn a lot of money. They may not reject it if it
was some big cash.
About a mile
away I saw another sweeper. I went to him with my
bag, and told him about the condition of the dress I
was going to give away. "You want to give me ? " He
asked. "Yes, if you want them." He was very glad to
accept the bag.
Each shirt cost me between RM35 to
RM60. I seldom used batik anymore except for the
festivities. I have two pieces of expensive designs
I bought while I was working. And I have been
wearing them many times.
I remember my religious teacher
told me, that dress to be given away should be the
new ones, not the shabbily torn ones or those we
have been using many times. My maid asked for my
unused shirts to be given for her husband. I was
very glad and permitted her to choose the nice ones
only. She went back with 30 KG of dresses in her
luggage, minus the 8 KGs carrying.
I made a policy not to give away
trousers unless they are new and unused.
usable gifts created an impression that the people
whom we think are poor are really not poor. Thanks
to the minimum wage law. The bag snatchers and
garbage hunters go on motorbikes to do their daily
business. Moonlighting would give them double
earnings. If the whole family work the total
household income would be at least RM2500.
At the jogging track I saw almost
everyone was holding a smart phone each in the
playground area. School boys and girls were seen to
own one too. People going for the BRIM came out of a
car carrying the stylish cell-phone. How poor is the
poor Malaysians ?

CENT CAN DO NOTHING, A BILLION CAN DO WONDERS
I don't take
a single cent of 1Mdb's money)
A cent can't do
a thing, a billion can do wonders. Couldn't that
money be used to buy people to make decision for
ourselves ? Who would you buy then ? It is a
question and you find the answer.
It is hard to
talk about integrity where money is concerned. There
is an amount that can always break the camel's back.
Corruption is not Malaysians, it is all over the
world; the White, the Black, the Brown and the
Yellow give for a favor, and take to honor the
request. Many a time they were disguised under the name to gift,
help the needy, a reward and a
responsibility. We tend to think the White skin
communities do not know the words corrupt and

take money from others, not belonging to them, also
using different names. What is with an exchange for
goods and services is rendered as legal. What
without is termed robbing. The goods and services
must be of acceptable of equal value. If a roti
canai is sold at 1.50 a piece it is an equal and
acceptable value. If it costs 25 dollars a piece it
is called robbing or blood sucking capitalist whore.
takes money from people in term of direct and
indirect taxes. Insurances and highways and other
bodies too enjoy similar prerogative. As far as
government's collection is concerned the public need
to know where their money go to. Expenditure on
defense, security and safety of the populace is well
understood. Healthcare an education consumed a big
bulk of national coffer.
collected by the government is not BN's or UMNO's
money. If they are to be of BN or UMNO's then only
UMNO, MCA, MIC and Gerakan members are subject to
taxation. Only then funds for development can only
be distributed only to BN's members. Statement like
"You vote for PAS you will not see the wind of
development" is considered coming from Satanic
Mahmud stole the timber in Sarawak he did not steal
from the Sarawakians. If Najib did not use the
government of Malaysia as a guarantor and did not
use any public fund to pay interest of the loan or
the loan itself, he too did not steal from the
people. But he did. And people are sniffing around
to see whether part of the loan is used to pay to
individuals in the audit department, the police
chief, the AG and other relevant people to make
decision or say things as to his favor. A cent would
not arose any suspicion but a few billions will.
A Haji or a
clerick can easily succumb even to a small amount of
money, especially the poor religious clerics. Hadi
would be easily satisfied if his son-in-law get a
few hundred thousands, or a simple visit by PM to
see him in hospital ward. An educated and ethical
person with strong mind may not succumb to a few
thousand dollar gift but may lose consciousness as
the amount has reached a few hundred thousands to a
million. How strong one can be to reject a few
hundred thousands. I worked my whole life but cannot
accumulate even a hundred kilo.
public begins to get skeptical about judges taking
money for the favorable judgment. It has been proven
that the judiciary had been manipulated before. May
a man be a priest, a Haji or a man of holly place I
won't trust him with his integrity. He won't touch a
cent but he won't reject a sack of big money.
At least 50% of
the citizens do not trust the police anymore for the
parts they have been playing in attacking the
political parties and protecting individuals.
If you ask me
whether I would betray a friend for a million I
would not answer you. Probably I would say "Show me
to hide behind the available law from exposing their
crimes like the OSA and bank acts. But the members
of the public do judge by what they see.
questions are 'How much is Najib willing to pay to
save himself from any charges ? Where would he get
the money from ? How much had he spend to boost his
local and international image ? He cannot dodge the
question by pointing at Mahathir misdeeds.

IF UMNO LOVE NAJIB, THEY LOVE GOLDMAN SACHS
was having my dinner at a restaurant when TV3 news
was airing 1MDB issues. Arul Kandasamy was said to
admit that he lied to Najib. To me it is a big joke
for a billion dollar company owned by the government
is happy to employ a liar. Arul had lied about the
source of money to pay to the bank before. But this
is not the point. When Najib was accused of lying in
parliament, PMO said it was the Ministry's staff who
prepared the reply. The liar was the civil servant.
PMO said it was not lying but it was merely a
misinterpretation. It was the cash in Singapore bank
but the unit. Now Arul says he was lying about it.
Then Jazlan said that
the 42 billions was not missing because the audit
says they saw the bank statement. Mind you the bank
statement cannot show the total of 42 billion. The
total amount in the statements in 2015, 2014, 2013
cannot be at that figure. It has to be much less. If Jazlan believe the sum in the bank
statement is 42 billion, then it has to be a real
The money was said to
have been invested and in the purchase of the
properties. These monies are not with the 1MDB
anymore. Which bank statement are they talking about
? The movement of cash into Jho Lo's account too
would not show the balance in the 1MDB bank
statement. If 2 billion were invested in company Y,
then the 2 billion is in the Y company's account. If
5 billion were used to buy a hundred million dollar
land then the 5 billion is in the company that sold
the land. What the people want to know why the cheap
land was bought at a high price ?
How much is exactly
in 1MDB account now ? Surely the skeptic need
several months to check the authenticity of the
paper statement. Anyone can type anything on any
paper. Laymen like us have been seeing plenty of
papers from all sort of departments brought by
beggars to show to us.
Remember, the ability
to pay the debt is from the profit, not from any
other source, like GST for instant.

what sort of nation is he/she to create. Mahathir

we have to purchase them.

of the people and the leaders towards the common
goal that push China to achieve the goal of space
exploration and other advance technology. So are the
Koreans. They built a very strong educational
foundation for decades. Korea surpassed many nations
in their technology sold to worldwide consumers,
smart phones and motor vehicles.
You must not be
surprise to know that there are leaders who want the
Malays to remain stupid so that they could easily be
deceived and lied and cheated, to be blind to see
the country is ruined by the hanky panky management

WHERE YOU CAN LISTEN TO CW
Having fail to hear Morse codes on 7 Mhz I went to
WEBSDR.ORG. On 6606.47 there was a station
transmitting codes like I used to listen many years
ago, messages from ship to shore. That helped me a
lot in mastering CW. It is sending 5 alpha-numeric
characters in a group.
Scanning up I heard W5GJ,Bob, on 7025.28 working
I1MMR. The later is very much stronger. It is 9.28
am local time. A few more stations were heard
sending at a speed of about 10-12 words per minutes.
If we are at 9.28 am, somewhere in the United States
is at 9.28 pm. In the good old days when the band
was opened there were hundreds of powerful stations
slammed in at 59+ RS at 6.00+ pm local.
Those who want to
hear CW and could not do so from the home station,
might want to try the websdr.org. You don't have to
download any software. It is the url itself. Type
it. Try on Saturday night and Sunday morning in the
West when hams do not go to work. You will begin to
learn and know whether they use machines or their
otherwise to copy an send Morse.
Since ship to shore

appropriate for the new comers to learn copying.

THE QUAKE - TIME TO PONDER
Physic and metaphysic. Reality versus myth. Are
we to blame the nude Europeans that caused the wrath
of the earth ? If we choose to believe in mystical
power of the unseen and the unknown, we need also to
blame the series of bad luck that have been striking
us soon after the jailing of Anwar Ibrahim. Surely
we cannot put the blame on the visitors.
Science has the answer and there are volumes of
books written on it. We need to study more on the
earth crust and the location and it's activity.
However to the believers it is the sign of the
end of times. Both Islam and Christianity is talking
about it. The end of time differs from the
retribution from God for the sins of mankind. If God
shows His wrath on the sinful creatures, Europe
should be the target where sexual acts, and free
sex, the freedom of drug consumption, and the same
sex marriages are more sinful and against the
religion of Christianity and Islam.
Bangkok is sex city. It is blooming healthily.
People live in fear of disaster and lament after
losing homes and other properties. Lives went
missing. The trauma is far from end.
Mhayuddin, Hadi and Kit Siang went to the
affected area without announcing to anyone and they
were there fast. I am sure there were many other
Malayan who rushed together with financial support,
unknown and untold. Enemies become friends. All
Malaysians must give support to the victims without
any political gimmick.
I see things in my nonsensical way. There is a
Malay proverb ' Sudah Jatuh Ditimpa Tangga' to
indicate that misfortunes strike successively. The
more Najib defend 1MDB the lower our ringgit become,
increasing prices of import items. We have problems
of FGV Feldo stuff. We are paying millions each day
for the 1MDB interest. Now the quake and Najib is
away. It keeps on coming and the Malaysians must
buckle up themselves. I never believe they were
If we can't fight fate then we can study our
readiness in facing the quake that has just
happened. What if it happen again ? As quake is
usually followed by Tsunami, are we prepared for the
calamities ? What sort of organizations are already
operating at every part of Sabah and Sarawak, both
which are larger than the Peninsular Malaysia ?
I just felt sad the victims will be given RM1000.
How much did the family of the victims of MH370 and
MH17 get ? Prices of commodities in Sabah are
costlier than the Peninsular. I wonder what is going
to be done to the damage homes and properties.
The Sabahans have a great deal to ponder.

1 MDB - WHAT CAN AND CANNOT BE TOLERATED
There is a risk in most business. Many companies
experience loses and closed shop. If 1MDB is facing
the same fate it can very much be tolerated. Yet
people may ask what is the business of a government
doing a business when it's main function is to
stimulate the economic growth and for stronger
economy. Instead we are hunting for money to pay a
very high interest rate per day. Najib at any cost
will not disclose the interest 1MDB has to pay, not
for the loan, but of it's interest. If this question
is thrown at a forum, the public will not hear a
true figure. It would be a very scary and bizarre
Najib may ask Saudi Arabia to help in the settling
the debt, which could easily be resolved.
But it will not account for any misappropriation.
1MDB took a long time to set the figure of
respective investments. It met with a defiance
rebuttal pointing at the string of lies that
originated from 1MDB guys. The Ministry of finance
too was playing with terms and words which many
When Jho Lo is using the money belongs to 1MDB

The opposition wants to know about the real cash,
not merely the numbers on sheet of papers. For
instant if 1MDB purchase a thousand dollar land for
1 billion they want to know whether the seller has 1
billion dollars liquid money, and that is not a
temporary amount put on the seller's name.
Even the money used by Reza Aziz to buy property has
to be answered. Any lie won't last long. People need
to know whether Jho Lo financed Rosmah's son.
The demeanor of the Finance Ministry is against the
General Order laid out by the British. The venture
has created suspicion and seen to be dishonest and

several arrests by now. If Jho Lo were kidnapped and
forced to reveal the person, he would surely expose
who the person is.

not earn much and they cannot do as much as they

PREDICTION COMES TRUE
Once the police said that teachers were the culprit
who sowed anti-government sentiments among their
students. The growing number of anti-government
citizens were wrongly diagnosed. It was not due to
the teachers but due to the arrogance of UMNO
members in work places and kampongs, with cocky
behaviors and harsh voice when talking to people.
They thought they were untouchable.
our school, there was one such a person, a
non-teaching staff not even with a college degree,
who thought highly of himself. The hatred towards
UMNO by almost of all the teachers were very intense
and reached the peak during the trial of Anwar
Ibrahim. That was the time when exam questions
mentioned Mahathir's siblings in the mathematics
Everyday the teachers analyzed the court proceedings
and cursed Mahathir for every alteration of charges
on time, date and other happenings. When we later
heard of the death of those who were conspiring to
jail Anwar we came to agree that it was the
punishment from God.
Why God did not take away Mahathir's life ? We were
told of his consuming a very special drug which was
very costly that could turn an old man to be active
and young. I told them that probably God wants him
to live longer and to punish him in the present
world for his doing. Many came to agree with the
Long after that we split. Some retires and some went
on transfer. I retired in 2003, not in the same

true. It was the comeuppance on Mahathir. And Najib
jailed Anwar. Najib got the punishment more sooner.
Mahathir's mental agony is now known by all. He
elected a man who did not care less about him. Najib
is using all of the nation resource to debase and
discredit him. He is being bullied and tortured.

worse and bizarre. Rosmah has been equate to Marrie

the police predicts of the coming of IS in Malaysia

Mahathir. I believe he will suffer as much as many
of us had been sufferings under his tenure.
me 1MDB is not the last that is haunting Najib.
There will be bigger evil that will strike the
nation. I believe in the mystery of the unknown, the
evil spirit of bad luck residing in an evil lady who
had brought a series of misfortunes to the nation
from HM370 to economic strain and poor performance
in sports and games. Most of all the Malays will
break and dissipate. Singapore is the mirror.

THE HAPPY FACES OF OUR LEADERS
It is the grassroots
who are suffering from Najib's economic policy. They
have to pay more for the cost of living. They are
fumed by Rosmah's extravaganza, and fed up with the
lies they themselves told the voters. In Malaya only
those of the top civil servants and the members of
the Propaganda unit still obey Najib. The level of
anger towards Najib is at a very dangerous height.
Does Najib know this ? He does. That's why he bought
a new jet. It could save him in case of an uprising.
He prefers to be in Sarawak and Sabah, states were
divorced from Malaya before the formation of
Malaysia. Taking literally Sabah and Sarawak are the
strangers adopted by Malaya. It is highly possible
that Najib be made a ruler of Sarawak and Rosmah of
Sabah if Malaya is not a safe place for both.
To the laymen like us
we don't believe in such thing as uprising to topple
the government. Not to the police who imagine things
from all angles and possibilities. The police
targeted the Malays to be militants and try to
associate a few with the ISIS.
Now the pressure is from UMNO. The longer the delay
by Najib, the more spoil he brought to the Malays.
BN and RM have changed from Barisan National to Bini
Najib and Ringgit Malaysia to Rosmah Mansor. The
degree of disrespect shown on Najib by the citizens
is down the mud, and very disturbing. I am sure
people in PMO read those comments too. Attempts to
fight back were too weak. The lashings were hard and
strong. Najib must be told. Let him read himself.
Someone must advise
PM to take a long vacation and forget Malaysia for a
few months, take a rest in Switzerland, Finland,
Hawaii, South Pole and Bolly Wood. Let Mahyuddin run
the country in his own way. That will cool down the
UMNO grassroots who are dropping big bombs on PM.

CHANGING INTEREST ?
There are two

could be the main cause, the decay of body and
mental metabolism that made me lazy to crack my
brain in planning the code algorithm and to quest
into a new arena of programming for the Apples.
Furthermore Apple programming is not free. We were
given free software but we have to pay for
publishing. I can't pay even if it is only a dollar.
I don't possess the plastic money.
As for the ham
radio the world seems to be changing too. All over
the old hams began to disappear. Many went to meet
God. In the country they have lost the interest
totally. When an antenna dropped it remained there
unattended. One of the most active in the
yesteryears was Rajamani, 9m2RJ, whom we nicked him
as Raja Jepun. He is still strong and agile. His
location is never friendly for a dipole erection.
Bahar never came back for an unknown reason. When

enhancing of computer technology that has cushioned

fingers and keep my mind alert. If my radio were to
get kaput one by one, I won't buy a new one to
replace them. I can use WebSdr to monitor Morse
communications for my mental exercise.
Morse codes is
just another language. I was almost at a lost when I
visited Hanoi recently. I could not speak even a
word of Vietnamese as I could speak Thai and
Chinese. I wont want to lose those abilities.
Sometimes I spoke Mandarin and Thai to myself while
driving. These are treasures we have to keep. Some
other hobbies we could somehow dispel with.
radio and programming to writing are not the
shifting and changing of interest. Rather they are
the shift in focus. What is so special about writing
is, it is my weakest ability that had failed me all
along from my school days till now. I failed in all
my English test, scored poorly in GRE. Like one of
my friends who dare and brave enough to speak in
English despite his broken grammar, I too prefer to
push myself trying to express something which I very
much hope people would understand me. It is a great
challenge. And I really love it.
In ham radio
what remain a glory is the Morse codes send and
received using human minds and manual skills. There
is nothing else.

HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE YOUR SPOUSE ?
Many of us don't know how much we love our spouse
when we think we were. I don't know how much I love
my wife until she was bed ridden and passed away. I
have been alone and doing some traveling alone for
days yet during that time I always felt she was just
beside me. Now without her I really feel the
emptiness and very lonely. I prefer to be alone than
be with friends. Many a time a have a lovely dream
so surreal that I have had a filling of fulfillment,
about togetherness with the whole family.
One student of mine from a Chinese school who
married a wealthy man who is now 72 and she 53 and
had bear several children. She has a factory and
shop houses given to her. "My income is 20K per
month, cikgu," she told me. "I have a lot of money
but I am not happy. I perished my my love for
33 years and now he betrays me." Her husband had a
38 years old girl friend. I know how much she loves
him. She talked about committing suicide. I am still
her teacher and I am trying my best to keep her
sober and straight.
There is another Malay student whose husband has
given her whatever she wants. Observing her
flirting with several men, I feel her love towards
him is not really deep as the other one.
Money and materials could not guarantee happiness
and satisfaction. I think love is about care and
sincerity. 'Till death we depart' is the real union
which had been very common in the past, less true at
present time. Divorce was rare in the past. Though
polygamy was allowed in Islam, it hard to find a man
who marry more than one or flirting around.
Love is not in the words one utters. We don't
describe with words.
When I put my wife on her wheelchair, took her to
bath and nurse her vowel, put on her dress and
combed her hair, I knew what love is. Let her soul
and spirit be with me now so that I won't feel
There were one or two ladies who threw smiles at me.
I never response because I felt I belong to someone
else, as if my wife is still living. Truly indeed I
love my wife that much.
Those students of mine have their own paths to
follow. I can pray for their well being and will
make the best decision to themselves. They will
eventually realize what love really is.

MDB - ATTEMPT TO LIE IS VERY SHAMEFUL
Najib is a
Prime Minister. A man of honor should not be called
a liar or the defender of liars.
If I run a
company I could answer where about of my money, the
lost and profit, within a few seconds. One of my
bosses told the people in one meeting that he was
very impressed when he wanted to know the result of
his relative's application into my school. I gave
almost an immediate detail, the parent's name and
address and the former school.
Similarly I would be able to
tell anyone the last balance of my account by
disciplines immediately even if I am away in foreign

an honest manner.
asked Najib to account where the money went, they
took a long time to come up with a chart when Najib
could have come with the answer at the most 1 hour.
Mahathir may not be an accountant but there are many
great minds who are well verse and who have put a
very strong and convincing rebuttals. They lashed
the cyber-trooper hard. They have responded on
behalf of the ex-Prime Minister.
I am not so
educated as those who challenged the 1MDB investment
chart. So are many of us. Yet we do see many missing
things to say 1MDB is making another attempt to lie.
The phrase another attempt shows there have been
previous attempt before. What were the previous ones
? Aru mentioned that Mr. Ananda Krishnen was giving
a 2 billion to rescue 1MDB. Then the Finance office
denied it. Then there was a letter of deposited cash
into a Singapore Bank, which was denied by the bank.
I have been
looking where about the name of PetroSaudi and the
name Jho Lo who himself said he was not the final
decision maker in the 1MDB. Money movement monitored
not only belonging to Jho Lo but also Najib and
Rosmah. I know 1MDB is working hard to convince the
people that Sarawak Report is false. But it was
Sarawak Report which exposed the Caymen fund in
Singapore. It was a truth that failed to be denied.
Finally, I was
trying to figure the running cost of 1MDB; the
salaries, the rented buildings, the lawyers, the
payment for the auditors, the utility bills and
other expenses; they are not cheap. For 5 years the
figure would reach a few millions or even billions.
This amount is invisible. Where does the money come
from if all were invested ? Oh Sorry, I forgot
they put it under working capital. But surely we
want to know the detail breakdown on the working
Sooner or later
1MDB will be cornered again. Would Najib say it is
not his responsibility for the lies ?
there will be somebody who will do the cross
checking. There will be no transparency and things
will be locked as top secret.
It looks like
that 1MDB will be forking from the profitable
companies owned or run by the Malays. Probably it
will over the Haj job run by Tabung Haji to pay the
running interest of the loan. The picture of it's
glamorous projects and investments which promted Ku
Nan to take it as the goose that lays the golden
egg, can never be true simply because it is
DEBT RIDDEN company.
1MDB has to
make sure it's bank account is completely secured
from being seen and plucked by others. Mind you the
restructuring is made after a very nasty attacked by
Mahathir and concerned citizens. What it means it
has been a long honeymoon ride from 2008 to now. We
know that many bad stuffs have been erased as the
eraser of immigration Altantuya's report.
The goose that
lays the golden egg had several audit change before
the final one in which Najib's son from his first
wife was in it. And there was a CEO who resigned
before the present one. Why ?
It never says
how much interest has to be paid a day and how much
income it gets per day.
For a primary
school boy to lie nobody would give a damn to it but
it should have not come from a Minister or a
Ministry, and a high profile body. It is a shame.
04/06/2015 - Abdul Rahman Raof
RECOVER THE 42 BILLION AND ROSMAH IN PROPER PLACE
Who wants to know about the re-structuring of 1MDB ?
I want to know how much of the money went to Jho Lo
and how much of Jho Lo's money went to Najib's
family. These were the questions that Najib were
dodging most of the time. He won't allow any UMNO
members to press him with them. And he will do
anything and using all the resources to sway from
the missing money. Mahathir charged Najib for
committing a punishable crime.
Najib should learn the history of Dato' Harun Idris
who was arrested and jailed despite of a strong
support by the Malays throughout Malayan Peninsular.
And about what is happening in Thailand. The evil in
Thailand began with Taksin's wife and it dragged
till now. And he should take a retrospect of
the role and activity of his spouse and seek around
about the mystery of bad luck. If a great turbulence
were to strike the consequence would be a grave one.
Probably the acceptable redemption is to put Rosmah
back in her place and to recover back the 42
billions. If he chooses to ignore it I have a strong
haunch his ending will be worst than Dato' Harun
Idris. The current proxy war against Mahathir
creates greater anger and the movement against him
will peak up the vast momentum which can hit with
While Rosmah is winning in her game the country is
experiencing a descending atmosphere in economy,
sports, education and morality. Our currency value
shrinks, FELDA scheme programs plunges and there is
a hesitation in the real investment venture ( Najib
can always create freak investor to boost his
popularity ). Lim Chong Wei was struck with a
misfortune and we are lag behind our neighbors in
sports. The progress in sports is a mean to measure
our mental prowess and ability. We are disgraced
with our educational standard which we have been
bragging much. We are getting more selfish and
greedy and continue to lose social responsibility
that lead to the non-stop crimes and drug
distribution. It is the feng sui of 'soi seow'.
Najib should also consider whether the smile of the
people he looked at will remain the same when they
turn their back against him. Doing the road show
could create a false image. I see his safety is by
putting Rosmah at her proper place and he has to
recover the 42 billion, before doing the
restructuring. And Najib must not forget the fate of
Dato' Harun Idris, Morsi, and the family of Taksin.

after that she would come to do some spring cleaning
and organized my house. The rest of other sisters
seldom come to visit her even years after her

the high price tag as if nothing has happened.
Recently an ice water seller asked me for RM2 for a
glass which I used to pay only RM1, I gave back the

ago when Black Market sold cinema tickets at double
the price, people passed words not to buy them.
People walked away even after they brought down the
Before I buy anything at a Mamak restaurant I always
asked for the price of each item. At Sub Way, I just
walked through after looking at the price tags.
But there are goods that we have no choice but to
consume. Rice, fish, vegetables, baby milk are all
essential items. Mackerel which used to cost a
dollar per kati is now sold at RM16 per kilo.

prices. The poor can't afford. Most people buy them
Whenever I saw people doing shopping at the
supermarket I said to myself "Wow, these people
really have a lot of money". A small amount of
cashew nuts cost RM27 and yet people bought them.
Sport shoes are at the average of RM250 a pair.
When we still pay for the non-essential goods there
is always a tendency for the price to keep on
rising. Call it crazy or stupid when people still
buy a kilogram pf mango for RM25. It is just one

follow a certain SOP to adopt and it has to be set
as a written rule. Do the radio operators to follow

they are vulnerable, with

staff working in the field
is rapidly developed.
Upon arrival on site, the
first task of a rescue team
is to look for injured
persons and to assess the
situation. For scenarios
with many (seriously)
injured persons, many
countries have foreseen a
standard procedure for the
initial scouting, known as
“triage”. According to it,
teams consisting of medical
doctors or paramedics
classify victims according
to different categories
(e.g., immediate, delayed,
minor, no chance of
survival) and attach paper
labels to the victims.
Paper-based triage and
registration systems are
because they are robust and
their usage is intuitive.
Nevertheless, the main
drawback is that information
about affected persons
remains among the persons
considerably more difficult.
Data can be duplicated/
aggregated by manually
copying triage tags only,
which is a laborious and

shown that injured persons
‘bypass’ the theoretical
work flow of the rescue
chain (see Figure 1),
because passers-by or
relatives take them to the
nearest hospitals. This
effect implies an additional
problem, namely a saturation
of the geographically

very often do not have a
communication return channel

Indeed, triage and
registration performed at
different places by
different teams maintaining
different lists are
indubitably an error-prone
approach. It can happen that
all later attempts to track
the way of single patients,
their attendants and
transport vehicles are not
very successful, although
this could be of key
interest in scenarios with
nuclear, biological or
chemical hazards. Last but
not least, relatives have a
legitimate interest in the
whereabouts of their family
dissemination of this
information in order to
provide coordination centers
with an accurate situation
overview (i.e. number of
victims, injury categories
and their location) becomes
one of the main challenges
to overcome, since the
normal medium nowadays for
exchanging information are
voice-based radio systems.
Earlier works have
already described concepts
for and advantages of
IT-supported MCI management,
which can be applied not
only to operations in the
field, but also to
emergency rooms of
hospitals. A comprehensive

handheld device to a
database. The main objective
of this article is to
describe the e Triage
approach (6), which is a
research project funded by
the German Federal Ministry
of Education and Research
and which consists of four
main elements: autonomous

of the project will be a
demonstrator system for

Albeit the main challenge
for the e-Triage system is
aggregation of distributed
data acquired from many
terminals in the field, a
fully centralized approach
for data storage is not
desirable. Rescue operations
are temporally and spatially
distributed events. Thus, a
distributed data management
approach has to be applied
(see Figure 2). Arriving
triage and medical rescue
teams have to be able to
start working immediately
without having to wait for
infrastructure to be set up.
Furthermore, all the
collected data needs to be
forwarded to local and
remote decision makers
automatically. As an
integral part of this
outages or node failures
have to be anticipated.
Thus, the underlying storage
technology will be a
distributed database system
(DDBS), which has to cope
with a variety of different
wireless and satellite links
with different bandwidths. A
basic assumption for the
design is that, on the one
hand, the network topology
might change at any time. On
the other hand, all involved
communication links are not
reliable so that
intermittent network outages
might occur (e.g., end
devices leaving the coverage
area of the locally
installed radio cells).
Nodes of this DDBS are
installed in all mobile user
terminals (tablet-PCs), at
communication nodes (OSECEs),
and in the remote area. The
DDBS discovers joining and
leaving nodes, and
(re-)joining nodes have to
be synchronized with the
core DDBS. This design
supports even scenarios with
no network connectivity at

communication services, and
since local infrastructures
may not exist at all or can
be destroyed, it is of
paramount importance that at
least a temporary
communication system is set
up. Even if functioning
networks exist, it is most
likely already saturated by
the affected persons using
their mobile phones. For
rescue missions in less
densely populated or less
developed or seriously
satellite phones (e.g.,
Globalstar or Iridium) are
commonly used during the
first hours/days. The idea
of backhauling terrestrial
cellular networks via a
long-haul satellite link is
not new and commercial
products already exist. An
example is Emergesat by
Thales Alenia Space which
has been designed to fit
into a container for air
freight. Disadvantage of
this solution is that it is
rather bulky and transport
into an affected area can be
rather challenging. The
development of a more
flexible and faster
deployable solution has been
initiated in the WISECOM
project (8) and is currently
continued within e-Triage.

that the complete on-site
equipment (OSECE) fits into

resulting suitcase prototype
is 56cm x 35cm x 23cm,

of coordination during the
first hours after a crisis
is a real difficulty to get
the relevant information to
prepare and coordinate the
help. The existing European
(ECHO) and International (OCHA)
structures, both defined to
organise coordination, are
already proposing the
appropriate mechanisms to
request and organise help.

the relevant activities.

the UN and ECHO can use
Emergency.lu. The service
approach also includes the
end-devices that can be
directly and intuitively
used by these experts. The
equipment deployed on site,

The Haiti crisis has
drastically shown also that
for such a large crisis the
deployment of a central
communication point is not
enough as the help will be
spread along all the theatre
of operations. The creation
of several SPoP can help to
distribute also the
coordination and the
collection of status
information. A permanent
assessment of the rescue and
humanitarian activities can
thus be realised, receiving
constant information from

information can be a real
add-on also for the analysis
of the situation. Indeed,
the collection of pictures,
sensor information or

site allows different
experts, specialised in
different areas, to make
their proper analysis. For
example, water quality
specialists can receive in
their laboratory the water

To efficiently collect
this wealth of information,
the NoSaCo terminals are
also equipped with software
for collecting information
from the end-devices
(cameras, sensors or
computers), and storing and
sharing it with the other
SPoP or with the Service
Hosting. This distributed
architecture allows an

On the crisis site,
NoSaCo terminals are
deployed on site to create
an IP connection with the
relevant hub. This
connection will be used to
create and deploy the
service. The technologies
implemented in the NoSaCo
terminals are obviously
highly tainted by the
technologies implemented in
the hubs. The main concept
of these terminals is to
integrate the modem into a
light weight and easy to
deploy module. The
compactness of the terminal
will allow its
transportation in small
planes not requiring a long
preparation time (Figure 4).

Disaster management in
the future – 5C
As the latest history has
already shown: Disasters are
increasing. Due to that more
and more qualified
specialist resources are
required on site as well as
in project coordination. In
many health and disaster
processes are posing severe
and local teams does not
work well. The activities
are very often lacking in
transparency, resulting in
decreased efficiency of
international team work.
That means an unnecessary
increase in the need for
resources and thus higher
costs per saved life . Or,
even worse, more time to the
real rescue is elapsing.
PLATON Services offer
support with a virtual
specialist resource. This
means that the information
flow is structured,
transparent and traceable if
needed to all participants

- NAJIB BLAMED BUSINESSMEN
have always known that the people and the
businessmen would be blamed on the GST issue. "Who
ask you to eat out instead of doing your own cooking
? You should boycott the shops that raise the
prices...' And you can imagine what else Najib and
Maslan would response to the increased price.
GST created price increase as it pushes the cost of
production and the cost of raw materials. By the
time a production tools arrived into your hand, it
had undergone several GST's charges.
Najib should not ask the people to enforce the rules
of profiteering. He knows that the government cannot
persecute all the businessmen whom he threw the
blame on. It is the government who should enforce
the law, not the rakyat. We know in the court
proceedings factors on production and material costs
will be brought up.
The rakyat must not be duped by another lie.
Many shops stock their purchases. They have paid
taxes for those commodities. The government knows
this too. It cannot take action unless the
government reimburse the amount back to the
companies. Instead the government is trying to make
the people totally blame the business community.
cannot deny of the existence of the greedy people.
With or without GST they will push the price up. The
Malay hawkers are now selling a cup of drink for
RM2, formerly RM1. Parking lot at one shopping
complex was raised by 100%, also run by a Malay
company. Greedy businessmen come from all races.

SPOILS OF HAM RADIO
Once ham radio
was associated with greatness, a hobby of the wise
and great people who never abuse it to make it look
bad. The process of becoming a ham itself contains
some form of controls in itself. It was not easy to
qualify as a ham radio operator and the authority
closely monitored the transmissions.
Again today I
traced a call sign being used by someone other than
the owner. I recognize the owner's voice and style
of conveying messages. And with a discussion with
another ham friend, he too heard a call sign being
used, which may come from the non-owner. It is
assumed there are many others are using calls
belonging to their friends.
On UHF there
are call signs using numbers like 01, 44 etc. The
mode and lingo used are just like hams of class B.
It is a viral in the whole country. They love the
lingo so much that even the RELA follow it. RELA is
using the equipment for communication just like the
When I saw
people with walkie-talkies in the coffee shops, I
never bother to ask them who they were. Strangely
enough at several places they called by my call sign
and gave theirs. Only then I would chat with them.
without any identification stuck on their vehicles
created a suspense. They could be hams or otherwise.
If it is
happening on 2 meters it could very well happen on
HF bands. I don't believe the class A licensees will
loan their ID to their friends but other unknown
people may be stealing it for DX work.
The work to
enhance ham radio ethics is not ours. It is the
authority. What else are we to say about it ? Just
wait for the spoils of ham radio is getting bigger
