FICTIONAL DECOY ?
I had sworn to myself that I would not
lend money to anybody else, even to my
close relatives and friends. It is not
because they are reluctant to pay back
but because they don't want to pay back.

full of swearing and promising that the
payment will be prompt. Big businessmen

hundreds to a few thousands. I even come

Many dared to approach shark loan and
suffered a severe punishments as they
can't afford to pay.
Failing to get back the loan some resort
to appealing through social media like
the Facebook. There ere occasions when
the lender get the lash from the
borrower. A friend of mine Halim, a
contractor who get a handsome bequest
from the mother's death avoided paying
me just a modest sum of RM500. And again
I made another promise to myself not to
lend to anyone anymore.
The problem with me is even if I only
have RM100 in my purse I would lend away
RM90. Realizing my stupidity I cursed
myself. I could not sleep thinking about
it. A working person, a lecturer, called
me up just for RM50. He should have
known that I am a retired man with a
meager pension. I would give him a
hundred and told him not to pay back. I
would not believe he will pay back.
Similarly guys who seemed to know my
name would approach me for a ten ringgit
loan, I would just give him.
Then a month ago I got a SMS requesting
for a loan of 30K. 30K is almost my
whole life saving after deducting all
other expenses. I had 35K in my account
. That's all and not a quarter more.
Don't they think I am jobless with zero
earning ? The SMS said the payment will
be a month. I gave a deep thought and
weakened by the pity, and decided to
give away 25K. I needed 10K for the the
Eid. My grandchild would be back home. I
usually spent a lot on both of them. The
bank transfer was made. I felt that I

Two weeks ago while jogging with a lady
teacher who I met at the track we talked
over a wide range of topics. She could
talk on end telling all sort of stories.
We talked about the raising cost of
living, the economy of a small car,
about health and exercise and money. On
the next day we continued our
conversation. One of the subjects of our
chatting was on loan. She narrated a lot
of stories on her experience that people
did not pay back the loan she gave, the
swindlers and her relative who took more
than a year to settle a small loan. She
too swore to herself not to lend money
Those conversations made me scared. My
25K loan may land in nowhere. What if it
is not paid and the borrower pretend
that there was nothing happen about the
25K transfer. To console myself I put my
faith in God and injected a strong
believe that the loan will be honored.
To my happiness, yesterday I received a
message the 25K has been banked into my
account. I felt so very relieve and
I am going to give away no more loan.
But what should I do and say when
someone approach me for it ? I can say I
don't have money to 99% of the people.
Surely the one who get the 25K would
think I may have a ready cash in my
It would be wise for me not to look at
the balance as my total cash in hand. I
need to compute the future commitment as
well. If I plan to but a Bezza new car
for RM35K and I have 25K left in my
bank, my amount of money is -RM10K. The
future commitment has to include
traveling, buying medical drugs and
supplements, road taxes and rates, and
the possible expense when I am warded.
I think you too can do the same.
Computing your balance by deducting your
future and desired commitments which
would include the holiday expenses.
In Islam the final punishment to people
who do not pay their loan is severe.
Imagine those loan defaulters who have
been to Mecca several times. Do they
think their sins could be cleaned and
erased by God ?

US POLITICAL FUND RAISING
Political parties in USA are competing
in raising funds. Donating to them is
not considered bribery though
individuals and business communities and
everyone knows they are lobbying and
expect a return favor. If Shafiee

million to Hillary Clinton it is by no

But Only Obama did not know Najib's

is on FBI's table and being handed to
Loretta. WE can't hardly say how Shafiee
conduct himself, whether with extreme
vanity or as humble as pathetic
beggar. The show of arrogance will not
be good for Najib.
We would have expect Rosmah to have
phoned up Michelle Obama probably having
a long pathetic talk, and even cry on
the phone. More than 4 phone
calls and continued pestering could cause
backfire. If it is so we can be sure
that the price of putting Anwar in jail
is the same gruesome fate awaiting
for him. As it is now the Prime Minister
is very confident of his escape.
Clinton had been paid before before this
to make her believe that Anwar was a
head of a terrorist group in Malaysia.
Najib used his Arab messenger to do the
work for him. Though contribution to

as corruption. Najib's favorire phrase

LIFE IS STILL BEAUTIFUL
To many of us life is very lovely
despite the political turbulence. They
don't have to be a millionaire to enjoy
good health, good food, a company of
merry and happy go lucky bunch of
friends. We may not be the luckiest but
we are not worst off than many of our
contemporaries around the globe. And we
are better than the jobless who made the
streets their home.
I am one of the luckiest as I started to
save during the working days. Today I
live quite comfortably with a small
pension. I cut corners and ensure that
there is no wastage. Having a small
660cc car cut a lot of spending on

more than 30%. But life goes as usual,
doing the same chores day in and day
out, with the core evening walk till my
body is soaked.
I was in USA before and was a frequent
visitor more than 30 times. I saw
beggars and homeless people everywhere.
I saw poor people in many part of the
great wealthy nation. I saw American
shops were taken over by the Chinese.
There were killings and robberies almost
everyday. I had never wanted to make
America my home.
I don't have a company of the merry
happy-go-lucky buddies because I chose
to be alone and lead a solitary life.
The free time is ample for me to do many
things from domestic work to leisurely
drive around the district. I washed and
clean, writing blog and develop computer
soft ware. At 70, I still enjoy filling
my time with those activities.
But when we are on computers we can't
run away from grim and dreadful news and
we tend to be
carried away. I can't stand the lies

I could not
sleep last night. Many things swirled in
1. MONEY -
A Chinese dialysis patient, Chong, is
about 45. He told me repeatedly, "Cikgu,
I am a millionaire, having tons of
money. I bought a house in China. The
money is useless to me..." Money does
not make him happy. And the other night
on the Whatsaap a friend said,"We are
old now. Our days are numbered. Spend
your money and enjoy your life. Don't
worry about your kids for they have
their own destiny..." It came from a ham
never dream of living till 100 or 90
years. I think I have 4 or 5 more years
to go. What's the point of running away
with a few millions and keep the money
in foreign banks. I don't want to die
anywhere else but on my beloved earth
near my home.
- I love freedom very much. I do what I
want, go anywhere I desire, move about
anytime I wish, and nobody dictates me
on what and what not to do. I don't even
want to live with any of my kid and
never came across my mind that I am
going to remarry.
To many of
us our mind is free of fear of being
killed. We go out without bodyguard,
without bullet proof vest. Even a few
high profile persons like the late
Tengku Abdul Rahman who went for his
evening exercise alone, the late Raja of
Perlis who drove to Pekan Rabu to
purchase some merchandise and talk to
the normal people, Tengku Abdul Malik
who would drive and ride a horse alone,
approaching the normal people, accosting
and talk to them.
one of the greatest gift of God the
Almighty to us.
LUST - Whenever we went to have
self-serving meal we would see people
filling their plates until the brim with
as much delicacies as possible. Then
there were a lot of leftovers. Food was
wasted. It was the lust that over rule
the reason. The same thing happened
during the fasting month when the
purchase was too excessive but to be
thrown away the next day.
It is also
hard to find people to say 'enough'.
Many would want more and more. A million
is not enough. A hundred millions is not
enough. A billion is still not enough.
You will see this in mafia gang, drug
lords and other criminals. Some sell
their souls to the devil.
4. POWER -
Some say knowledge is power. Some say
money is power. Mao Tze Tung said that
power is at the barrel of a gun. All of
them are true.
and the army will be impotent without
weapons. They are armed to create power
in them. The power of a leader lies with
the police and the army. What a leader
has to do is to hold onto the chiefs and
feed them well. Similarly, the terrorist
is one only with guns and ammunitions.
How would a
person who thinks he is so powerful act
? The gangsters bully and exercise
intimidation. Robbers would rob you at a
gunpoint. The United States would swarm
the warships into the South China Sea, and
I would use it to make money.
- When I went to the Friday prayer I
heard political sermons several time,
calling us not to believe social media
and the importance of stability, about
IS and other worldly affairs. At least
half of the congregation would interpret
the Imam as government propaganda agent
and bore a dislike towards mosque and
all other religious figures. The effect
of people distancing themselves from the
God's house is detriment to the position
of Islam in the country.
be frowned by the non-Islamic acts of
religious leaders and politicians. The
issue on Zakat is enough to compare the
usage of money by the Muslims and the
Christians. Again it painted a black
mark on Islam. A stupid religious figure
can cost havoc in the divine faith.
PEOPLE - I am worried that Malaysians
have become rude and rowdy. Below is
their responses to Tungku Abdul Aziz and
Lim Kit Siang's remark
moving towards bloodshed ? A wrong move
can result in the Malays will be gone in
Peninsular Malaya. Who started the
chaotic situation ? Was it the people ?

gloomy clouds over us. Bad omen hovering
us could be in form of natural
disasters, calamities or something else
beyond our imagination.

At the Time Square New York the huge neon
light was running the news on our nation,

shame. It was repeated by other
international media. And I never expect

with a huge sum to get such a number
I don't believe this is a bad luck at
all. It is just a normal happening. But
when there was a helicopter crash in
Sarawak during the election campaign I
regard it as one of the bad luck brought
by the same source.
The causal-effect phenomena could very
well be predicted and many analysis were
made base on these phenomena. But bad
omen is unpredictable in shape, form and
structure. What I have been predicting in
my blog did materialize so far. The
world is observing us through their
embassies. We should be ashamed when we
twist and turn our words, changing them
by day. People are studying our words
and deeds. Suppressed people will find
help somewhere else. But that's nothing
as compared to the nature of the bad
luck that will strike us.
What's next ? We just have to wait but
we have to differentiate between the
causal-effect and the storm of bad luck.
There is one thing we should always
remember that we cannot challenge God in

hears the cry of human's hearts, their

There will be a time when every single
cent of the GST money will be counted
and examined where they were used. Many
of us won't live to see the day. It will
be a day of retribution for the
criminals if there were any. And the day
is not too far ahead.
People have been asking similar
question, "Can our Prime Minister sleep
and not worry about anything ? " A few
has the answer, surely emerge from
conjecture, an intelligent conjecture.
Najib has to think about his son-in-law,
about Jho Lo, about the international
investigation. His lawyer had posed a
question whether Najib could be arrested
by an outside country. Putting together
it shows Najib cannot go to bed as many
of us do. He won't be worried about
Mahathir or anybody at all in the
country. Nobody can budge him.
He has to buy those foreigners who are
after his friends and family at whatever
cost. Obaid and a few of his foreign
advisors should be able to do the work.
It will be a hard work and will have to
involve a colossal sum of money. Sarawak
Report accused him of using the 1Mdb's
money, which could be true or false.
But without paying Najib can still
escape persecution from the United
States by secretly allowing the East
Coast to be eyeing for Chinese armada.
The international judgment of the South
China Sea is an opportunity for
Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
USA is more interested in containing
Chinese expansion than Rosmah's son or

Malaysia. TPPA alone has brought huge
profit as seen in the increase in prices
of goods and medicines from the North
American continent. Food and beverages
too sent tons of money in addition to
the telecommunication and media system.
If the opposition party members work as
hard as Najib's team in the United
States then things might be different.
That would require millions and billions
of ringgit, beyond the opposition's
grasp. I remember talking to one
Filipino American woman who said, "In
America there is no love nor affection
but money..." The anti Najib's team
should not be too confident that Najib
or his family could be indicted in the
But we can be sure that Najib's
commitment is extremely large that even
the GST is not enough. He has to raise
funds by additional means. It is never
good for the nation but good for him and
his team. The poor, the jobless and the
pensioners suffer. The purchasing power
plunge. The cost of living inflates.
The police is very well aware of the
state of Najib's popularity. The
security system enhanced to protect
Najib is as great as the United State's
president and the Russian Vladimir Putin.
Nobody can ever dream of putting off
Najib in any way. The shield is thick
and he is almost invincible.
The police even talk of IS targeting the
Prime Minister which I think as a mere
precautionary measure. IS as a live
organization in Iraq and Syria will
never emerge in this country. When we
talk of an IS we are talking of a body
with firearms and a stock of ammo. Other
than the mafia, drug lords and gangsters
the normal people can't afford to
purchase even a small weapon.

live in fear or in sickness ? What is
the use of wealth if we are not as free

In our days a ham who just passed his

had to be on CW for a year. by the end
of his one year he would gain enough

Ham and Amateur Radio
Today the concept of Amateur Radio and
Ham Radio has taken into a new form. The
CB, the Family Radio, the RELA and other
unknown groups communicate, some using
similar equipments and frequencies, with
styles of their own; some mixed the CB
lingo with their own and some follow the
lingo of the old ham radio. Had not
because of the call signs we would have
thought they were fellow hams. They used
numbers from 00 to unspecified values
for the IDs and the call signs and
others do not. All of them are radio
hobbyists and love talking over the air.
The most pertinent name for them is
Amateur Radio operators, hams plus
non-hams and all others who are not
using the radio for service
Traditional ham radio operators know and
operated using Morse Codes or commonly
known as CW. Those who found CW was hard
to learn would go outside the boundary
and operate a CB radio. With the
abolishment of CW as a prerequisite to
be a ham radio operator, the radio
frequencies used to be given to
the hams with CW certificate are now
filled with operators without such a
knowledge. And somehow those without the
license from the authority also joined
A great number of old and new operators
want to maintain the traditional mode of
communications. Some organized
themselves and form an international
group like FISTS. Ham Radio must be
associated with CW. It has been a
package in the ham radio from the
beginning. Like the Atheists and the
believers living side by side, the
different between them is the divine
book of revelation. They cannot be the
same in the eyes of God.
Like in the religion, one cannot dump
those with CW and without in the same
pot though they may live side by side.
If to the Atheists God is dead, those
who cared not about Morse, CW is dead.
Using the traditional concept amateur
radio without Morse is not a HAM. They
can't use the word SILENT KEY to
indicate the death of a person.
However there is nothing to stop anyone
calling himself a HAM as he wishes. One

opposite of 'SEY' or Soi Seow,bad luck.
Putting Ong after Nasi Lemak indicates
the rice has a good luck connotation.
You will get all the good luck if you
eat it and the owner too receive the
best of the luck.

else accompany the Nasi Lemak. Usually
the rice is sold together with the ikan

ministers who forced themselves to
resign. He chose someone whom he
could manipulate to create greater
trouble for the nation in time to
come. If you still remember Najib

as possible. He thinks he can stop
the free fall by sponging the

There is no way out for 1Mdb. It is

would have missed it again if 9M2RB,
Rusli, had not asked me whether I would
want to join him the trip to Jakarta on
the 5th. of October 2016, to which I
immediately agreed. Rusli had done all
the bookings and we are now waiting for
the departure date.
We will be back home on the 9th.
October. I have purchased the plane
ticket from Alor Setar to Kuala Lumpur
for the 5th and 9th October.
These days when I go traveling I want
comfort and eat good food. What is
better than Nasi Padang in Indonesia,
always delicious at reasonable price. I
have two full days to really enjoy the
city and the festival. The last two time
stopping in Jakarta was something like a
transit to Jogjakarta and Bandung.
I have downloaded the offline map of the
city on my Samsung and will study the
map as soon I get the detail information
of the hotel location and the ground for
the fest. Surely it would facilitate our
movement and be able to get back to the
hotel if we were to get lost within the

is worth doing it before I die.
I asked Rashid, 9M2NZ, whether he will

doesn't go but instead will be going to

CHANGING THE TASTE
For the whole of Ramadzan I only bought
Majid's rice once because the price was
raised by 50 cents. The most tasty and
palatable is Dapur Bonda where there are
a lot of choice of delicacies. Nasi
Daging, where meat and rice, were cooked
together cost RM6 per pax. So far I only
made that choice twice. Instead I bought
a plate of rice, chose the type of gravy
I wanted and would take either a fish or
dried squid. Sometimes I was charged RM3
and other time RM4.
For the last two days I decide to cook
my own Bhasmati rice, prepare hot
chilies, fried keropok and
a small amount of small fries. Today I
bought small prawns from a wet market
and a gravy which is called pindang. The
prawn was fried with chilies added a
small amount of salt. The keropok as an
essential item of the menu. My God ! The
taste was fantastic. Food without any
form of poison. What is sold in the
stall contains a lot of ajinomoto.
Majid will be wondering why I stopped
going there. And I will have to inform
him about his price. I could buy a more
tasty and cheaper food somewhere else. I
will be telling him that if he disagree
with bringing the food price
competitively I will not frequent the
restaurant anymore. I can always cook my
own breakfast. Once I get back to Pak
Hassan restaurant I will buy fish curry
for my dinner and keep it for fried rice
the next morning.
Food and commodity prices are climbing
each day. Najib do away with all the
subsidies as the country is saving money
to pay his huge loan and the money for 1
Mdb. He is the worst Prime Minister I
have ever seen, spending millions on the
comfort of his wife more than himself.
Raw food is more expensive in Malaysia
than in United States or Thailand.
Eating out is a very expensive affair.
What used to be expensive before like
KFC and Mac Donald are cheaper now than
at the restaurants. A meal can cost a
person RM20 to RM40.
All imported foodstuffs increase by
double. I abstain fro purchasing can
food like Laichee and Pineapple.
A jobless and a retired person has no
other alternative but to compute the
most and cheapest economical ways of
The changing style of food intake from
buying to home brewing can not only save
our money but also would give us
different taste of food everyday.
25/06/2016 - Abdul Rahman Raof
Call it what you want, an intermittent
amnesia, memory decay, senility or brain
dead, they are all in me. I have lost
the sense and perception of time and
space, do not remember what I want to do
and where I want to go. I don't even
know the day and date many a time.
Things go and come back. I know today is
a fasting months. I felt it was just
like yesterday when it began on the 6th.
of June. Today is 16th. of June. The
officer at the Land Office counter told
me this morning that today is 16th. of
The advantage of the loss of time and
space sensitivity is that days leap with
a great stride. I have retired 13 years
already and growing older rapidly but
due to the vanishing sensitivity I have
been thinking that I am still a young
man, only to be reminded by those who
called me 'uncle' or 'grandpa'.
There are many things that I do not
forget; those who hurt me, who borrowed
my money and my portable things, who
lied to me and those people who did good
deeds to me and other people. Selective
amnesia ? I don't know. That's what
things are. The mystery of nature may
be. I call it the work of God.
The daily chores on this Ramadzan seem
to go on very well. Each day I am
getting smarter in buying food for the
breaking of fast, the amount is lesser
and expenditure is much reduced.
Yesterday I bought a packet of rice with
some fried dry squids on some gravy
wetting it. I only paid RM3 and I bough
some cookies for RM2. The day before I
paid RM4 for a packet of rice and a
fish. I enjoyed the delicious food. I
decide to have my food from this vendor,
Dapur Bonda restaurant, leaving the
Mamak who raised the usual rice-tomato
by 50 cents.
At 5 or 5.30 I went for my evening walk
but reduced the distance from 4.8 km to
3.6 km. After sweating enough I took a
rest before coming home, feeling fit and
fresh. The washing and ironing is done
between chores like a T-shirt or two
just before or after praying. Washing is
simple. All were done by machine. After
30 minutes I would take the wash to dry
them outside the house. I have no choice
but to use 2 T-shirts per day, before
and after my evening walk.
This morning I went to the local Land
Office to finish some land matter. I was
glad everything is done. I could take a
The festival day, 1st. of Syawal, will be
very soon. My grand daughter would be
coming home. I am thinking of finding
some fireworks for them but it is not
easy as it is banned in my country.
There are some leftover from last year.
I don't have much money left to
entertain them because only recently I
lent quite a big sum to my student.
What do they take me for a billionaire
banker ? Or is it easy to exploit me ?
They know it is hard for me to say NO.
But life is fulfilling when I can do all
the work that I want. I don't dream of
having a private jet nor eating a
RM30000 Japanese meat. I don't have to
steal people's money and lie through my
teeth. I don't live in fear of being
kidnapped, murdered or hurt. In fact WE
do enjoy life without having have to
have 20 bodyguards.
Despite all the drawbacks living a
solitary life is indeed a rewarding. You
don't hear any of your family members
shouting and cursing at you and calling
you senile and stupid for your stupid
behavior. Senile people tend to do
stupid things which irritate the others.
Nobody tells us what and what not to do.
If we forget the day and the date we
don't hurt anyone. It is just that we
might miss something.
Like younger people I too am looking
forward for the Raya Day, waiting
eagerly to give away some money to the
kids passing my way and fire some
crackers with the loudest noise. I put
life to my house with colorful
glittering lights inside and outside. It
is the joy most of us are waiting for.

sinners did receive the punishments from
God. Bush who was part of the False Flag
Attack on 911 is now drug dependent, the
Israelis are living in constant fear,
and others are either mentally unstable
and paranoid or sick and unhealthy.
Life must go on. I have a few more years
to live and I might as well go on living
and make the fullest use of the
remaining days. I solve my own health
problem and other occurring ones. Some
strange ones would be revealed in my
blog. Why should I let others suffer
because of me. And when I went for a
distant travel, I did not bother people
to send and receive me at the airport.
I believe good health can make one
forget his worry. So I do daily exercise
even during the fasting month. And
keeping fit is imperative when I am
living alone. I checked my blood sugar
and blood pressure everyday, study the
type of food that I should take.
It was just coincidence that people who
were not happy with me during my working
days have all gone to see God much
earlier. It was not my wish at all that
they should leave this earth. As I said
earlier what could a slave do when
seeing his master passed away.
While you are still living, try not to
hurt people or put them in difficult
position. While your parents are still
alive do not hurl harsh words on them
and treat them like animals. If you are

citizens by taxing them and stealing

SMUGGLING THE MONEY OUT ?
Cash transfer through banks could be traced. The
report by the Wall Street Journal had enough proofs
on the trail of money that went into Najib's
account. Najib will not dare, ever, to sue the US
based journal because they contain the very concrete
proof. Najib would be greatly disgraced by the
donation and other spinning stories.
The Rosmah's bags on the private jet episode sparks
suspicions and questions. Luggage which should be
put in the luggage compartment were carried onto the
passenger's area. There were conjectures and
deductions as to the content of the number of
luggage in the cabin. It was also insinuated that
many of them contain cash to be deposited in the
Turkish banks by the billions. In this way the money
movement cannot be traced.
Najib's aide and Najib himself will come up with
some sort of answers. And many will believe him. But
he has been lying all the time and has proven to be
so. BN ministers cannot be pissed out all the time.
The luggage story would be unknown to them too had
not it been without this leakage. They too will
start to ask similar questions as the rest.
Why those luggage were not housed in their
compartment ? Rosmah won't be able to see them and
feared anything could have happened. Putting them in
the cabin was safer and she could eye on everyone of
If it is the money, the plane may not fly straight
to Istanbul. It may stop at Saudi Arabia. Najib's
brains and masterminds are all here, waiting for the
delivery. Then the jet will continue to Istanbul.
Somehow the stories will be known, if not now it
will be years later. True or false Rosmah will be
more than 70 by then. She will be getting heavier. A
few crazy Malaysians will be hunting for her to
revenge. Many citizens expressed intense hatred on
her, saying Najib is under her spell.
The police should investigate too as to the content
of the luggage and not to take side or announce
their findings. They can always discuss with all the
other top UMNO members as to the appropriate course
if the bags contain billions of ringgit
or US dollars.

One's dream to talk on the air via one's own

In the normal time, the regulation on power use
could carry some advantages. It encourages an
operator to set up the best antenna system ever at
the highest affordable height. And he could learn
Morse codes to work DX stations with the maximum
allowable power. Of course CW is not mandatory.
Knowing it will give him some advantage. Besides the
skill can enhance his pride and satisfaction.

MY 2ND DAY OF THE FASTING MONTH
Things did not come out as what I had been planning
on the first day of Ramadzan. The purchasing of food
plus drink was RM10. I computed it as RM7. That was
for the breakfast. At half fast two in the morning I
went out for the Sahur at KFC. The wedges and a
Pepsi cost me RM7.20. The total meal added up was
RM17.20. My plan to go for the evening walk
proceeded without a hitch, and arrived home almost
45 minutes before the Maghrib prayer. Only my
stomach had some upset. I guessed it was cleaning my
intestine. Total excretion ended up at about 2 am.
Today I feel much fresher. I decided to consume meat
rice for my breakfast and tomato rice for my Sahur.
The best of both is from Dapor Bonda, the food
vendor my wife used to love. The two sets cost me
RM12. I also bought some fried dried squids ( sotong
kering ). I was charged RM3 for it. The additional
stuffs are four ringgit. The total for today's meal
inclusive of everything is RM19, a dollar and eighty
cent more than yesterday.
Astonishingly I did not get tired at all on the 4.8
km walk today. Yesterday, I was too tired and had to
struggle for the 3.6 km. There were not many Malays
at the jogging track except for 4 or 5 young people.
At this very moment it is 7 pm. I have yet to take
my bath. I do feel thirsty but it is only about 30
I started the breakfast with my medication and a sip
of water. Then I went to my prayer. Having done my
chores I browsed the facebook. At 8 pm I took my
rice. Today I will follow the same thing. If I don't
feel any stomach upset, I will be going to the
nearby mosque for the Tarawih.

WHY SPEND MORE DURING RAMADZAN ?
Business flourish during the month of Ramadzan. A
friend said a month of Ramadzan the profit yield
would last him for a year. The rental for the sale
booth charged from RM500 to RM13K by the city
Yesterday at a Giant supermarket there was a huge
crowds purchasing the trolley load of stuffs and the
queue was very long. I only bought a packet of Brahim
rendang and 5 cans of isotonic drinks. I am so sure
those same people will rush to buy food at the
Ramadzan stalls. They'll buy tons of foodstuffs of
different varieties. I would say the extravaganza is
just to satisfy the lust.
Today I intend to buy a kilogram of rice, will cook
it for the Sahur. The Brahim rendang will accompany
it. For half a cup I can have a big plate of rice.
For the breakfast I'll buy something that will not
be more than RM7. Last year I remember spending
lesser than the normal days. This year I will try to
spend much lesser for my food consumption is getting
lesser as ageing climbs.
The breaking fast in my locality is 7.33 pm today.
It is difficult to say which is the best time to go
to buy food. After 5 pm there will be a big problem
of parking but it would be a nice time for me. By
6.15 I have a very ample time to do my evening walk
and would complete it around 7.15 pm. Otherwise, to
beat the traffic I would have to go at 4 or 4.30 pm.
It is a bit too early. I could waste some time by
strolling from stall to stall to see what sort of
menu they have at their disposals. With the seven
ringgit I won't be able to buy a baked-fish which
usually priced at RM12- RM20.
To start walking at the jogging circuit at 6 pm
would be the best computing the average of the food
buying times of 4 and 5 pm. The victuals however
will have to reside in my car for about two hours. I
have 30 minutes to take a bath and have the food
ready on the table.
For the first few days I would not have any problem
with my stomach and afterwards I could join the
Tarawikh prayer until the end. After that there
would be turbulence due to the acid-food reaction
and it would all be done after the vowel clearance.
My Tarawikh would cut to only 8 rakaats. That has
been the case over the years. I am still alive till
now. Nobody could ever advise me not to continue
with my fasting.
Spending less is a form of discipline and a control
of our own lust. It is our winning achievement. It
would be easier for me as I am living alone. I only
spend solely for myself. But it also should be easy
to those who find the extra unfinished food and
ready to throw them away. We can do away with
choices. Just eat what we have. If we want other
varieties, just buy them on every other day till the
end of Ramadzan.
Of course we cannot be sure that we can spend less
due to the rising cost and the GST. What we used to
pay 20 cents is now 40 cents. Sellers have to charge
more for higher rental, plus the raw stuffs they
bought. People with meager income, the pensioners
and the jobless would feel the pinch.
I saw ladies dress is selling at reasonable price.
The average is RM50 a piece. Why buy the most
expensive just one wants to be looked beautiful ?
The dress does not determine beauty. A charming lady
is always look charming even without any. And I have
already got a dress I bought which have never been
I would rather spend more money on kids if I have

wished for beggars but there weren't any. This year
I hope to see more beggars coming to my house. A
beggar is a beggar, a poor jobless men or women, not

much and only wants what may belong to others.

THE LOAN IS NOT PAID YET
had always thought that ham radio operators were
respectable, capable, trusted and helpful people.
That was when I first came to know amateur radio,
way back in the '60s and '70s. It was not easy to
qualify as an amateur radio operator then. One had
to pass the theory paper to be answered in English
and in essay form, and also a pass in a Morse codes
test, of 12 words per minute. The pride lied in the
Morse capability. Indeed it was a kind of filter to
ensure hams operators of high caliber. It is almost
correlated to the characters and attitudes of the
operators. There might be a rare black sheep
somewhere but I had never heard of any. I only knew
of experimenters in laser technology, celebrities in
Holly Woods, the aristocrats, the ruling elites, the
congressmen and professionals in various fields.
Come the late '80s onwards I began to hear cheaters
and liars. Hams that took friends' gears and never
to return them. Hams that borrow huge sums of money
and never to return them.
have written on a ham who seek RM500 from me saying
a religious cleric wanted to borrow as he was too
broke, and promised to pay me back by a week. And
this person is a big time contractor, a wealthy
person with lot of properties inherited from the
dead farther and mother. I did not mention his name
and call sign trying to avoid disgracing him. I knew
that he always read by blog and hope he would honor
his promise. Till now he did not.
Yesterday while having lunch at one Mamak restaurant
the shop owner asked me about 'a fat and big guy who
lived around Seberang Perak area'. I responded
saying I have not seen him for a long time. I
narrated to him about the manner this man approached
me for the TM500 and disappeared since my lending
him the cash.
There is another ham who borrowed by the thousands
from several persons and continue to prey on
honest hams. He does not owe me anything and it is
not my job to expose his identity.
think I have given this person enough time. It is
not only the money that matters most but the
crookedness, the dishonesty, the deceitfulness and
the whole creepy stuffs that can cause pollution to
the grandness of amateur radio. It cannot be a clean
hobby with dirty people inside it. Amateur radio
should not tolerate such a person.
have to remind you that bad hams are not confined to
only the 9Ws though in my case I experienced the
bitterness with a 9W2 person. Mine is nothing as
compared to the torment of other lenders. Names were
divulge secretly by whispering to friends ears. We
were warned to be very careful with con hams. One or
two disposed names on the face book due to
Of course I cannot convince you not to trust any ham
who is a contractor with the suffixes J something
and the prefix 9W2. It is a small puzzle for you to
deduce by yourselves.
If he pays me before I die, I will write an apology
to him in the very same blog so that you may know
that he has repented. The only person to whom I told
the identity of the ham is Hanafi, 9W2TZ. I always
keep him up to date whether that person has made me

What do you think of life and living after
reaching 65 ? Many people pray for longevity
and rigorously take care of their health,
eating good food, doing exercises and
consume a lot of vitamins. I do observe food
intake as well and do daily exercise but I never pray
for longevity. I may die anytime. And I am
not worried about death.
I always asked myself where would be my last
breath; at home in this town, at my new
abode on some island somewhere, while on
traveling or at the Holly Land ? Is there
any uninhibited island somewhere where I can
rent a small lodging and stay there alone
and die there without anybody from my family
knowing of my departure ? A lonely place far
from people and noisy city life without TV
and newspaper is almost free from the evil
of human race. I would not have known
whether Mahathir or Najib has passed away or
sick or even in jail.
I remember the elderly people of the
yesteryears who wished that God takes away
their lives while performing pilgrimage at the Holly Land. Parents would
not shed their tears on hearing of such
death. I have not made my Haj yet though I
have been to the Umrah for a simple reason,
that I am not a totally clean man yet in ,y
heart and my deed and religious practice. I
feel so fit and strong and young at this
age, at 70. And this is actually a problem.
At least I thought of death. How many
politicians do think about it ?
Is it true that some animals, knowing of
their imminent death, would separate from
the group and went to find a place to die ?
I have some places in my mind. When I told
my student about it she told me not to be
very stupid. Why should it ? I could start
looking for a place and choose where to die.
You would remember several UMNO ministers
chased the Malaysians out if they could not
agree with the policy and rules of UMNO. If
Najib could negotiate with foreign
government to accept the outgoing Malaysians
it could be sure thousands or even million
would choose to leave the country. It was
almost as good as impossible. But it is
within our reach to allocate distant islands
in Malaysian waters for those disagree with
UMNO to go. The government can shut the TV
and all form of communications and
transportation. I would be one of the
volunteers to go. Of course my preference is
the less populated island.
Wherever you see humans you are seeing evil
and hypocrisy. The most despicable are the
politicians and the people in power. They
made law to suck your blood and sweat, to
siphon your hard earned money, forcing you
to pay for their lavish expenditure and the
money they stole. They deceived the people,
lie to them, corrupt them and finally won
their positions. The people are stupid
enough to choose rogue individuals as their
leaders. They are happy to pay for the
higher prices, the GST and the stolen cash.
They made god out of a man and said that if
the Muslims do not listen to Najib, means
they do not listen to God.
You are seeing these evils everyday. Some
are worst than beasts, manipulating and
forcing the people to like GST and to save
the criminals. It is hell. The only outlet
is to detach ourselves from the sight of
these sinners. You will not die peacefully
under the realm of UMNO.
It is not because of UMNO that drives me to wanting
to run away from civilization. It is the totality of
social mixtures summed that made living is full of
stinking odor. Even top politicians go to the
retreat, far away from the city in the deep jungles,
dwell with nature for several days. Serenity and
calmness are now becoming luxuries of life, where
people pay to be with them. Deep jungles have been
made a tourist resort.
No matter how and where you die your soul will still
meet the angels and God the Creator. Let me die in
peace and tranquility in a quiet and beautiful place
where nature is untouched by the greedy mankind.

WATCH TOO MANY MOVIES
been watching too many Holy Wood movies
to fill in the empty time. Once upon a
time the Communist use them as
propaganda tools, a part of brain
washing machinery. Today China produces
more entertainment films. One has to
assess movies from Holy Woods and lump
them into various categories. Not all
are made for mere entertainment.
Chinese stories are depicting
corruptions, almost similar to the
current happenings. There are English
action films that tell us about rogue
individuals who hold the post as a chief
policeman and a gangster boss at the same
time, which could make you think of a
similar situation here. Political
leaders could use the police as well as
the mafia warlords to defend themselves.
The crooks help them in getting rid of
their foes and anyone who threatened
them. Tamil movies tend to expose the
nature of the bad politicians.
see too many movies you tend to think

THE MALAYS AND THE BRITISH
The British has a long history of
civilization, understanding the people
and the world around them, mastering the
sea and the oceans in the earliest
centuries, took India and Malaya at the
helm of industrial revolution. The early
American governments was set up by the
Anglo-Saxon race. The world looks at the
United States as their god, eat American
Mac Donald and Kentucky Fried Chicken,
rent their technologies to create
personal wealth by selling to their own
The British understood the Malays very
well. So much so our Sultans loved to
have British advisors and finally gave
the full power of administration to the
White People. Examining English
literature written in the 16, 17 and
18th century we could assess the mental
acuity of the Englishmen, strong
reasoning power and very observant. The
British described the Malays as 'a brown
skin and emotional people living on
trees'. The later Englishman of the 20th
century, Alex Jose, described the Malays
as the generation of pirates.
The Anglo-Saxon, White British, are
cunning, shrewd and clever. They have
been playing games with the Malaysian
Malays to their advantage several times
and in many ways. We have to pay them
for the recognition of our school
certificate. That will not be forever.
They want a quick and hard cash for any
technology you acquire from them. They
set morality aside for your money.
Nor Mahathir, nor Najib can think they
can deceive a fellow British at the high
echelon. Remember British pirates have
been plundering the Spanish galleons for
gold. Drake was a pirate who was
knighted by Elizabeth I. Alex Jose
forget that his ancestors were the band
of pirates, and will continue to cheat
and plunder foreign funds wherever
possible. They would accept money from
Najib even they know the money was
The Englishmen will not beg from the
Malays or Najib. They do not send their
sons and daughters to Malaya to study
and obtain degrees from our
universities. If you want to pay for
their football team they would accept
it. We were forced to move the Malaysia
Hall to a new place, to a smaller and
more congested building.
Economy wise Najib does not gain much.
He just want the British to say okay
about the money that went into his
account. At least he can be sure the
British government will not wave him a
red card for money laundering. Behind
the mind of the British they want to
have more money and more cash from
whatever source Najib can offer them.
They are cunning all the way.

AND SHAMELESS EVIL
I have always aware that Ministers and
other politicians have been telling lies
in parliaments. I am sorry to say almost
the whole member of parliaments are not
aware of many things and a big number do
not possess the analytical and
mathematical ability to reason and
compare the statements by their fellow
parliamentarians. It is owing to a
simple reason, that they are human
beings. They cannot be perfect.
Each and everyone of them must remember
that they are responsible on what
flouted from their mouths, and whatever
they read from documents prepared by
their offices and subordinates. A man
who pull a trigger killing another human
is equally guilty as his master who
ordered the murder. They cannot finally
passed the blame on the finger, the gun,
the gun maker or the gun seller.
Similarly if one car knocks another the
driver should not shift the blame on the
faulty break, the bad road, the other
driver and the government for not
drawing a better traffic rule.
Because a parliamentarians are
responsible and accountable they have to
be sure of whatever they are going to
spurt out are real, and true. Najib has
lied in parliament. Azlina also lied to
the law makers. Both, when caught, did
not want to accept the responsibility.
They squashed their accountability. What
they had done were they lied to the 30
million citizens. Instead they use their
machineries to justify their
sins of irresponsibility, and putting their
blames on the opposition parties.
By the standard of morality and human
civility such an attitude is called
immoral behavior. The feeling of shame
is absent within their souls and
spirits. They judged themselves
differently from the judgments of that of
masses and the world. It is not a satire
when a story of an emperor with an
invisible dress was made to fill the
entire social atmosphere. When thefts were
proven and the criminals were not
indicted as they control the whole
power, they thought they were innocent
and they were kings.
They paraded themselves to the world
telling how beautiful their dresses
were, at the same time in their nakedness
they splash wealth and money to the
people, thinking their rouge characters
could be bnished.
Human who are obsessed with the thought
of invincibility and unchallenged power
will elevate themselves to the level of
God or would not believe in the
existence of the Supreme Power, nor
believing in heaven and hell. God has
taken away the feeling of shame and
stripped them off of their ethical and moral values.
That's the reason we see them blaming
others all the time. A robber who
breaks into your home will blame you
for not locking your doors, for not
deploying the best protecting
equipments. A rapper who may one day
rape Azlina will say that he can't
resist the beauty of her. She should
have been uglier.
Najib lied about the money in the
Singapore BSI bank and recently blamed the Am Bank officers for not advising him,
yet keeping quiet about the money and
used some of them for personal purchases. Azlina said that she only spoke as what
was told to her by the PAC chairman. Of
course there were more lies especially on the
election maneuver of ballot boxes.
It has come to a stage that criminals
and gangsters are walking with pride in
their faces saying, "I robbed your money
and I peddle drugs...so what ? Prove
that I am wrong...." The victims are
in the wrong and the criminals are on
the right, unless proven guilty.
Men have been distancing themselves from
God, either they forgot or simply do not
believe in one. They passed laws on same
sex marriage, giving freedom to nudity,
legalizing once an illegal drug, causing
misery and pain to the innocent, poor
and helpless people under the pretext of
What better things can a citizen get
from a leader without shame and moral
values. It is not about Najib alone. It
is also about Mahathir when he was in
power. The sins are going on on a more
vigorous scale. Najib has almost become
a Pei Shu.
Never pray for the death of the reckless
leaders and the evil officers and
supporters. Let us hope for their mind
and body being tortured. The day will
come. When it comes they will have to
pay. But we could also pray so that the
God would restore morality and the
feeling of shame in every one of them.

BACK TO NORMAL LIFE
It has been a week since I returned home
from my trip. My vanishing cats began to reappear
one by one, rolling on the floor when seeing me. And
I have completely recovered from the jet lag. My
evening exercise is taking it's momentum.
Rain has been almost a daily chores, pouring evening
showers to cool the warm air fired by the hot sun.
Nothing is like home. No amount of nuggets in a
beautiful and wealthy land can attract me.
A normal life now is living alone. The house is
not so quiet and noiseless. There were shrieking
sounds of my VHF radio and the melody of Bunga
Tanjung by an Indonesian singer, Hetty Koes Endang.
LIfe is full of color and fragrance odor of
happiness. I chose to ignore those weird and scary
specie of politicians for I viewed them to be worst
than a Satan.
Today I have a visitor, someone from our
Spain-Morocco group. I took him to my normal Majid
restaurant for a meal. The Mamak gave us a free
lunch with no charge. Then we went to Pekan Rabu
where he bought a Songkok for RM65 each and sarong
costing RM35. To me a RM65 songkok is expensive
enough. He came last night, stayed at his brother's
house and had to leave Alor Setar to fetch his wife
at Kuala Kangsar. "Someone passed away in Kuala
Kangsar," he told me. " I have to be there for a
Tahlil." He shot off.
I had an evening walk to do in the evening. I
waited for the Asar prayer before proceeding to the
jogging circuit. These few days I did not get tired
with the 4.8 km brisk walking, soaking myself with
sweat and enjoyed the rest of the day with fresh
body, feeling fit and young.
Intermittently I watched movies or soccer on my
Samsung Note2 or browsing the facebook,
entertain myself reading remarks from the Najib's
cyber troopers with their myopic vision. Free soccer
without condition imposed by the programmer is Dubai
Sports which only broadcast the games in the Middle
East, and North American League. There is no English

I just came back from my dinner. My usual
restaurant is KFC where I would go for the Wedges.
If not KFC the other alternative is Mimi Tomyam
where I would go for fried rice, fish and an apple
juice. At time I told myself that U need a change.
This is the time when I would drive around thinking
of the place to eat; sea-food is too far to drive
alone. Pizza Hut and Secret Recepie would cost me a
fortune. Many a time I would settle for a ham burger
with egg, or a packet of Nasi Lemak and a glass of
coffee. Tonight I decided to go to Mimi Tomyam. It's
not cheap, It costs me RM12 for the complete meal.
Afterwards after writing this article I will be
in front of my TV set. First I will start reading A
Man In A Corner from my Android e-book. A few pages
would be enough. I will continue tomorrow. Then I
will see what's cooking on the TV channels. If there
is a soccer match on any channel I would watch the
game. If there is an adventure movie I will see it.
Else I would watch the movies I keep in my external
It the routine that kills my time, that moves so
fast without my realizing it. Months pass just like
yesterday, years pass just like last week.
At least I do think of my death, that is
inevitably comes the soonest. Najib and Rosmah and
other Ministers do not seem to show that they too
will be facing the God Almighty. They don't want to
give away their posts to the younger people and
spend their time in repenting and seek forgiveness
for their despicable sins.

POTO TRAVEL NO MORE
am not a rich man. But I have been traveling
before POTO was born. In those days I did not
hear of any Muslim travel agencies. My
relationship with Reliance was not because of
the company. It was due to the friendly nature
of the staffs at the office point.
Whenever there were special offers they would
rang me up. Even on my personal trips to the
United States I would buy the group ticket
joining the tour group and spread my way on
arrival following my own program. I enjoyed
three tour programs with the company to North
America with fantastic group members.
For each of the trip, the tour leader would ring
me up a day or two before the departure,
introducing himself/herself, telling me what to
bring, reminding of the weather, money, the time
and date where I should meet the group. On the
plane our passports were collected. The tour
leader filled in the immigration form for us and
returned the documents to the owners. They wore
their company uniform and carrying along their
company's mini flag.
The tour leaders were very well verse with the
history, culture and knowledge on the United
States. They explained everything all the way on
the bus without any local tour guide.

need their service and they are just doing
favors to the people. Their e-mails are binding
and laws to be abided. Whether you receive or
read the mails are none of their concern. It is

receiving it. They can even alter the date

PAY MORE FOR LATE TRIP
On the 25 th. of April POTO travel rang me
up at about 4 pm asking me to pay extra 5K
if I wanted to catch the group in Marakesh.
I refused to pay. I believed I would win if
I were to take the case to court, no matter
what proofs POTO had for the evidence to
prove my negligence. 15 minutes later they
called me again saying POTO would bear 50%
of the cost. If I agreed to pay 2.5K I could
take the 5PM ETS to KLIA. I agreed but I had
to pay the amount the sane night.

trip with the group was set up in the next
I don't have the group picture as I arrived
late. They were all a bunch of nice and
wonderful people, a comfortable company to
be with. There were Datuks and Datins, great
business men, retired high ranking officers
and two young and lovely girls.
The name of our tour leader from Malaysia
was Nurul Nadia as seen standing on the left
in the top left picture. She is now doing a
PHD program. In Morocco we had a full time
leader and a local city tour leader.
Everybody was asking me of my late arrival,
the reason and the flight time, and who
fetched me at the Casablanca airport. And
everyone was surprise to hear of the
original amount asked by the company. 5K was
more than a return trip to United States.
Someone mentioned Felda and Apple Travel
Agencies. I had traveled with Reliance to
New Zealand, Europe, United States,
Australia and Indonesia. I chose an unknown
company to India. I remembered very well
that Reliance's tour leader would be calling
me on the phone a day before departure and
gave a short narrations of what to expect
and where to meet on the departure day.
But I reserved to keep things to myself
because I wanted to enjoy the trip which I
paid RM12.5K, almost 5K more than the rest.

FROM MOROCCO TO SPAIN
We took a ferry from Morocco to Spain, about
2 1/2 hours. We had to move the luggage by
ourselves, quite a messy job. The gradient
was a little steep. But we had had enough
strength as we had just have our lunch. I
cooked my own Brahim Briyani and enjoyed my
meal with Daging rendang. The rest were
satisfied with the Halal Kebab.
Gibralta was a place to visit. But it is
under British territory. We had to pass the
British immigration who scrutinized our
passports closely whole allowing other
passport holders to pass through just by
showing their passports. So much so we had a
problem with the local tour due to the
delay. Finally we hopped on the two coasters
driven by a couple young English.
Gibralta or Jabal Tariq, is a small
strategic military area during the
world war2. The city is compact and
the pathways are small. Tourists go
on the coasters that can go through
the caves. There were a few busses
seen. Probably the busses had to go
a long way for the sight seeing.

THE SHATTERED DREAM
My dream holiday to

just rice. Lucky for me because it was
delicious enough. I already had a poor

A couple of months ago there was a MATA
fare. I did not know what transpired
from the fare. But POTO managed to get
more people to join the Spain-Morocco
trip. I kept on contacting POTO to ask
about the Visa and the number of people
in the group.
Then I saw another advertisement by
Photo giving the date of departure on
the 26th April. That arose my suspicion
and curiosity and rang up Photo about
the 25th and the 26th. I was told the
25th and the 26th trips were the same.
the 25 th. flight time is 2.00 am which
is on the 26th.
I waited while filling in some important
items in my luggage. I told everyone
about my going to KLIA on the 25th to
catch the 2.00am flight to Casablanca.
On the 24th I decided to book the hotel
for the 7th May. To my surprise I found
that the return date is on the 6th
arrival, one day earlier than the
original program. I searched for a phone
number of the tour leader who did posted
a message telling us what to bring with

cause problem to the customers.
Poto rang me up blaming me for not
reading their e-mail. I asked them why
the company did not call on phone for
the last reminder. They could have
called me in the morning of 24th April
like any other travel agents. Others
called a day before. People will tend to
get confused on the time and date
especially after 12.00 midnight. For
that reason they must have the courtesy
to call. Why can't they do so when
others could do it. They asked me to pay
They called me at about 11 pm on the
24th not at 8.30 or 9.00 am in the
morning as I do not live around Kuala
Lumpur area. And they even changed the
return date from 7th May to 6th. May. It
involved a lot of money and distant
travel. They can't just take thing for
granted that a mere e-mail is enough.
For the 5K I can pay a lawyer. Let them
take their e-mail evidence to court.
My travel with Poto is at it's end. No
more with other Malay companies. You
observe all the other Malay businesses
and you will see how smart they are.

2.6 BILLIONS INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETED
The investigation on 2.6 billion
dollar in Najib's account is

claimants but only one is the
truth. The first says there is
no donation shown by the

The other party says it is all

THE GAME GIANTS PLAY
Who is smarter, Najib or
Mahathir ? After Mahathir seek
the court action to freeze
Najib's assets until the 1Mdb
case is cleared, Najib raise the
salaries of the chief justice
and senior judges. Mahathir is
playing on the rule of law and
Najib on the power of money. The
question behind our mind is will
the judge be on Mahathir's side,
Najib or neutral base on the
rule of law ?
Whatever the outcome wealthy
people and the business
communities do not suffer. We,
the lower portion of the society
do. I just came back from a
super market buying 5 pieces of
underwear and 6 pairs of Chinese
low quality socks. I paid more
than RM50. I guessed I have to
pay several layers of GST. What
do the Ministers and the people
of higher echelon know about the
pain of the lower people.
Lately I have been watching
several Stephen Lau's comedy
movies on judges and justice.
All those movies depict on the
nature of corruptions. The
timing of my watching and the
raise in judges' salaries seem
to coincide. Of course a movie
is a movie. Najib may not mean
to corrupt the judges but to get
their favors in throwing out the
challenges of Najib's enemies.
If Najib is smarter than
Mahathir then there is nothing
that Mahathir can do. And Najib
can play a diplomatic blackmail
on foreign countries to escape
from the arrest card being

A PET AND A HUMAN

those cats loose to pregnant the

the cats three times a day, sometimes
four. There is a water container below a

The remaining were left to the birds of

for a father to ask his son to return

years, half of his age. Examine
what did he do with another 20
years. For a student that had 12
hours of wakening time he had 8
hours to study and the rest used
to linger with friends and
motorcycle ridings. What if a

to acquire knowledge ?

Najib was right why 1Mdb must not be
discussed and must be stopped. The longer it
drags the greater the magnitude of the
secrets will be out, more pieces will fit
the puzzle. Now the question of the refusal
of 1Mdb to provide documents to the auditor
and PAC keep on popping up, the sacking of
the old audit and the replacement of another
that has some link to Najib's son, are
emerging to show how they make sense. 1Mdb
was trying to hide something which cannot be
of non-criminal in nature.
Listen back to the words of Apandi. It was
hard and strong. It was forceful delivered
with power. There was no wrong for Najib to
accept donation. There is no need to
investigate 1 Mdb.
Why was 1Mdb refused to hand over the
documents asked ? What secrets do they
Arul Kanda said all the money in 1Mdb is
accounted for. If it is there is no harm to

missing funds. Normal citizens began to see
the shadow of the hidden stuffs and
expressed themselves as shown below;
From Apandi the focus went to Hassan, the
PAC chief chosen by Najib to investigate
himself. Hassan too announced that Najib was
innocent. Najib has nothing to do with 1Mdb.
Following that there were leakage of 1 Mdb
documents showing Najib's signatures on
them. In the meantime Apandi is in the cold
Outside the box is the court proceeding of

And before this Rafizi was arrested under

the OSA documents will be read by several
police officers and the IGP himself. The
document was about the fund belonging to the
retired military personnel that claimed to
be connected to 1Mdb. Rafizi wants more
police personnel to view them.
You can start to ask question where is Najib
now ? Will he only be to attend the Islamic
Conference ? Or will he be moving around to
several countries to court USA and even
Switzerland ? We never know. We can assume
Najib will have to plead innocence, a gamble
which Rosmah thinks will win. At the same
time there is a thought 'What if it fails ?
' Najib's lawyer had been asking around
whether foreign government can arrest Najib.
The Malaysians and PM Najib could be rest
assured that no foreign countries can issue
an arrest warrant on Najib because the
Malaysian PM did not commit crime in their
countries. Even if they can prove Najib's is
a financial terrorist, it is nothing to do
with their nations. But Najib will be seen
as an Emperor with an invisible dress. It is
not so bad at all as compared to the fate of
Ghadafi and Saddam Hussein.
Only by the wrath of God Najib's fate will
end up sadly and badly in our history. 1Mdb
will not just end tomorrow.

The lawyer of our Prime Minister asked
whether foreign countries can arrest Najib

have asked the question. And at this moment
of writing Najib is not in the country. He
is said to be in Turkey. But my third eye is
saying he may not only made Turkey as his
destination. He would probably be in several
countries including Switzerland. His enemy
would even accused him of taking oath using
any Holy Book at all to swear of his

The rushing and the network communications
among Najib's team members are discussing
what to do and what to say. The team members
have to include Reza Aziz, Jho Lo, Obaid and

report. Najib's lawyer and other close
ministers with law degrees probably have
finished the content of the report to be
Najib has no need to be worried. He won't be
arrested whether he is viewed as corrupt or
not. USA did not attack Cuba to arrest
Castro. Najib does not commit crime against
the United States or Belgium or Switzerland.
Any crime committed within our border is the
jurisdiction of our authority. But the
feeling of guilt that made Najib's lawyer
pursued the unpleasant question of whether
Najib can be arrested by foreign countries.
And Najib will have to tour the world to
swear that he is innocent and there is a
fraud attempt to bring him down.
In any case I would say 1Mdb Arul Kanda and
Najib is too hasty and too rushy. May be
they have made a complete calculation that

consider and think about. The first; the
United States issue the warren of arrest on

States. Again one has to decode what the two
statements mean to imply.
Husseiny has his side of the story. That's
what the United States want to hear. We
don't know what. But we can be sure Najib's
camp is ever ready for immediate responses.
He will surely narrate privately the secrets
of Najib and 1Mdb. We can expect a big war
And on the second message we need to study

a violent mean to topple their leaders. Life
here is much better than in most of the Arab
The Malaysians are still puzzle. Why Apandi
declared that 1Mdb was perfect and there
should be no more investigation ?
Do you think Najib's rushy work now would
halt the 1Mdb issue ? Will his swearing be
received with sympathy ?
Just wait. Probably more jumpy things will
storm the nation. You will see Najib stand
strong despite the turbulence.

I wish I were a lawyer. Many of
us are not lawyers and we did
not go for a law course, nor did
our school teacher taught us
about the legality of things.
But we may be caught for
something we do not know and we
will be told that not knowing
the law cannot be used for
Every now and then we would pick
up what constitute legal and
illegal, and terms like alibi,
hearsay, the onus of proofs etc.
We can't keep stolen goods or
buy stolen things. Of course we
don't know they were stolen. We
can be charge in court and it is
up to the court to decide.
Whether we are found guilty or
otherwise the stolen properties
will be returned to the owner.
If you have ever catch a thief
before, the first you will hear
is, "I don't steal your thing."
In the olden days the police had
to lock a criminal in a torture
chamber to get the admittance.
Criminals, especially the
educated ones, seem to know how
to play with words and maneuver
around with excuses.
Only one party can keep stolen
goods and never have to return
to the owner. They have immunity
in almost all of their illegal
activities. I remember while on
a flight to United States, my
neighbor on the plane said to
me,"...Bismillah and drink.." He
drank the wine as if after
saying the prayer the wine
turned halal as it entered his
throat. There is no sin nor
illegality as the acts cross the
border of the ruling party
households. The caucus of the
ruling party is the sanctuary
and heaven for criminals. There
is a different set of laws for
both the ruled and the ruler.
Big time crooks like mafia,
gangsters and drug lords do not
steal and peddle drugs
themselves. They have members
well connected to the lawmen and
they know the law themselves.
Again we have to refer to
Hollywood movies that reveal the
true story of vices and crimes
committed by the high profiled
mafia. They came face to face
with the police, smiled at the
later who could not nailed the
crooks. But in the movies the
crooks somehow met their destiny
with violent death.

THE AGONY OF PM NAJIB RAZAK
PM Najib used to be a man of
concern towards the people but
as days gone by there was a
vivid change in his total self.
The greatest turbulence came
after the jailing of Anwar
Ibrahim. Just immediately after
that MH370 went missing. Another
personality of Najib began to
surface and he became a man of
dual personality, Jekyll and
Hyde. Those who dislike him
called him Bonnie and Clyde, a
Western husband and wife
gangster and killer. He sacked
the country's Attorney General
and transferred top brass
officers, picked up his own AG
and investigators, sacked his
Deputy and other UMNO
chieftains. He and his men ran
Foreign observers and investors
and diplomats were observing and
assessing him. Out of the blue
Wall Street Journal published
about money going into Najib's
personal account. He denied it.
"If I want to steal or keep
money I would not put it in
Malaysia's bank. Wall Street
Journal is lying and trying to
defame me." All media that
published stories on the money
in his account were either sued
or forced to close down. The
government seek Interpol's help
to arrest Clara Brown, the
Sarawak Report owner, telling
the Interpol she is a terrorist.
Justo, a man working with 1Mdb,
resigned with stolen database
and apprehended in Thailand.
Justo was accused of leaking the
data to WSJ and WSJ tempered
with data to broadcast fallacies
about Najib. Rahman Dahlan
brought in one Melanyi to say SR
printed nothing but lies. To
bring Justo as a witness was
futile because there might be
mismatched between the original
and the tempered leak
Mahyuddin and Shafiee
Afdal asked Najib whether it was
true the money was in his
account. Mahathir accused Najib
as stealing the 1Mdb money. It
took several months for Najib to
admit, and to say it was a
donation from Saudi Kingdom to
fight an ISIS. When it was
pointed out that ISIS wasn't

to condemn and destroy those

Najib wanted to lock people's
mouth from talking and to stop
any more accusation towards him.

the TV media to command the
public to believe the words of
the authority, not the words of
the opposition and the media.
The authority is the AG, the
MACC, the PAC and the
The old AG was sacked. Pandi was
chosen as a new replacement.
Pandi in a televised news said
that there was nothing wrong
with Najib's personal account as
it was a gift from Saudi King.
At the same time he waved
another chart showing the
pension fund that also went to
Najib's personal account.
Some time later we heard from
Najib. "The money in my account
is for UMNO's election. The
pension fund was put into my
account without my knowledge."
WSJ had been waiting for Njib's
legal action. In the meantime it
published another chart showing
millions of dollars were used by
Najib's credit card on jewelries
and other personal goods. A few
days later, there was a reply
that the purchases were for the
poor and the people in need.
Public rebuttals thundered with
strong voices. Malaysia has a
Minister and a Ministry with big
locations looking after the poor
The lies became thicker and
thicker each day.
Najib has had a strong machinery
in the Middle East to take the
impact of any heavy fall, either
a living or a dead man. He is to
say that he invest the money for
the making of the Wolf of Wall
Street. This would free Najib's
son in-law. But the WSJ traced

Somehow the top UMNO leaderships
will open up their eyes.
Who is behind the transformation
of Jekyll and Hyde other than
the Prime Minister himself ?
There are many
amazing stories about Rosmah
Mansor. It was her own words," I
don't have time now for
badminton, too busy managing the
country..." People in Putrajaya
were complaining of her part in
weekly lecturing. There were
rumors on her talking to Putin
about MH17, her using the
government jet for shopping, and
even insinuated on the
queen-control and her black
magic. She was even quoted as a
de facto Prime Minister.
UMNO ministers used the word
perception of the people to
argue for misconception. It is
what was conceived in people's
mind of things they saw which
may not be as what they actually
saw. Foreign investors moved out
because they have a wrong
perception of Najib Razak. So it
is on the status of Rosmah who
was wrongly interpreted. Or just
a wild and unproven slander.
But I would still believe that
Najib would not be in such a
deep trouble without Rosmah. In

out. He already said, "I just
came in and did whatever I was
asked to do." He did what was
asked not what came to his mind.
He may be ready to jump side if
1Mdb's issue has become very
volatile and the game is
approaching a check mate.
As I said before that Najib
cannot be persecuted by foreign
countries. They just want to
confirm what kind of people our
Prime Minister is, to study on a
man's behavior and his approach
in getting support and
popularity, comparing his words
and his deeds. The locals
already describe Najib as an
emperor wearing an invisible
cloth and his ministers were
elating him about how beautiful
the dress is.
I watch a movie called ESCOBAR

I am just an ordinary person, living on the
bare minimum, having a small pension and a
little saving that I consider as an
abundance from God Almighty. Yet so far
three individuals whom I considered wealthy
approached me for loans. The highest request
was 50K from a class A contractor who were
running well-known restaurants. I promised
to give that much when I get the dividend of
my demised wife. Later I had to apologize to
him as the amount I get was only 20K. I
needed to use that amount for my
The idea of loan swirling in my head. There
were notices of private individuals and
private enterprise posted everywhere, which
I took as a loan-sharks. There are loans
from bank with collaterals. Government too
provide loans for housing and vehicles
And I start to think what if I were to be a
rich man and people come to me for loans.
I think it is wise and imperative to know
what the loan is for. Is it for building a
house, to open up a business or what ? Then
I have to request for the plan and the
chronology of the execution.
Many countries do not give a lump sum to the
borrower and they want to know what the
money are for. Japan once giving us a loan
with provision that the loan must be
followed by using their engineers and
experts and progress payments were made as
the tasks completed. And a few of the
Malaysian counterparts were unhappy with the
regulations. "We borrow...the money is ours.
What we want to do with them is our
business." That is also echoed by
Salleh's family on the Cow project.
Borrowers who want a lump sum will usually
have other intents other than the stated
objectives. They may not do the planned
project at all, divert the usage and pinch a
part for their own personal use.
I believe it is our moral duty as a lender
to make sure the loan is used as what they
purport to achieve, especially if the client
is a government or it's agencies. The same
principle applies to the laymen. Bad
repercussions may befell the family of the
borrowers or the citizens of the country if
the money deviates from the original goal.
It is a human responsibility to ensure less
sins are committed by fellow human beings.
We all do see what happened in the NFC
undertaking. We would be wondering why the
progress payments were not made. If the
rules were carefully followed the money
would have not gone to the condo project. A
great wrong had been done. Rules were
broken. And the whistle blower got the
punishment. People has lost the shame in
them and can walk without dress in public,
show their faces in public media.
Hence it is very moral not to simply lend
money without knowing what they are for, and
to throw the total sum into their personal
coffers. There is no such thing as trust in
the modern world where money has become
gods. You may try me with 1 hundred dollars,
I will reject, try me with a hundred
thousand, my honesty and integrity will
reject it. Put a few millions in front of
me, my mind will start to get blurred. "I
can use the money to help the poor, to
donate to the mosques and go to pilgrimage
to clean my sins." The taker finds a
good justification, turning sins into
divinity, hell into heaven. Your trust can
Setting regulations may make you a bad
lender and borrowers will search for a new
source. Without ulterior motive a person may
still prefer borrowing with rules as he
himself will be safe.
We have seen what happened to the 1Mdb's
money. Everyone seemed to be enjoying with
the cash, starting from Goldman Sachs who
get an enormous commissions, and then the
cash moved everywhere at almost in a random
fashion. We were told the money remained
intact, every single cent of it is accounted
for. Yet people linked to 1Mdb were sacked
and subpenaed to court.
We have borrowed from Asian Development Bank
before and the project was closely
scrutinized and paid following in due
process. Try to imagine if a bag of cash
were pushed to us. Part of it will find it's
way out to other convenient expanses. Human
can never be perfect. We are full of greed
and lust. Our desire is insatiable. If we
don't live within systems, rules and
regulation we would go berserk.

EDUCATED UMNO READ
Never mind about the fallacy of Sarawak
Report. It was from the beginning the BN
government not only banned it but also seek
the Interpol's help to arrest Clara Brown as
she was labeled as a terrorist. Likewise
Najib had paid a lot of money to convince
Hilary Clinton that Anwar too was a
We do not know how many members of the UMNO
group are English educated or the numbers
who can read and understand the language.
And how many of them do read the banned
publications just to know what is written by
the other sides. Could it be more than
30% inclusive of the top members ?
Intelligent readers will compare between
Najib's denial and the media exposure. There
will be a small percentage who believe that
Najib has stolen the 1Mdb's money and do not
believe in the preposterous donation from
the dead Prince. These few will spread the
SR exposure and start to see how vicious can
Najib be. Reading from the feedback it
clearly shows that a vast number of the
populace believed in the dishonesty of the
Prime Minister. They do not believe in the
story of donation, the new AG Apandi who had
been expounding conflicting statements, and
the Cari Makan PAC chief. The Malays
seemed to be more aggressive by using
despicable words on the leader.
Najib takes a few months to response to
questions while the SR stalled for a few
days gathering rebuttals. The English
educated who earned nothing from Najib will
not just stay idle. Najib could sack as many
as he wants or pay them by the millions to
gag them. The GST won't be enough to cover
all the payments including the loan and
other heavy debts. Even with the OSA to
protect criminal acts and activities of
government Ministers the leak will continue.
It is hard for Najib to cover the huge
boundary of the loop holes that have
To say the non-educated UMNO supporters
agree with Najib is wrong too. At the
grassroots they were talking about Najib and
Rosmah despite of the media campaign on
Mahathir and Lim Guan Eng. The fact that
Rosmah was booed during the price giving
ceremony of the badminton match which had
briefly shown Rosmah's countenance and body
language was clear enough that she is very
unpopular among the people.
Though I do not like Mahathir, I think he is
sharp enough to see how Najib is wriggling
himself to deceive the people and the world.
The time will soon come of international
rebuff of Najib's acts and maneuver.
- Abdul Rahman Raof
Will Najib relinquish his post and Tengku
Razali takes his place ? The answer is NO.
Did Najib negotiate and promised Tengku
Razali the PM post ? May be. If he did it
was just to deceive the Gua Musang chief to
side and support him. Will he resign and
Zahid Hamidi takes his place ? NO. Najib
does not trust anybody, rather he does not
want to take any risk at all. He does not
trust any UMNO man however well they show
their allegiance. He has been in UMNO for a
long time and he knows the people in UMNO.
He is not a dumb Prime Minister. He computed
his future since when he was in politics. He
has his own press people and he was building
up his popularity a long time ago and more
rigorous when he was a defense Minister. He
chose the Jews as advisors and consultants
because he knew their strength, and he will

body guards when he decides to retire,

highly probable that the new PM will proceed

when he finds the current financial standing
is too tough to handle. These has been
happenings in the government departments as
the new heads could not bear the financial
mess lay before them.
His future would be more secured if the
Malaysians believe that he is innocent and a
mere political victim. For all mean and
purpose he has to fight hard using all the
available resources to prove that he is
The task will be very difficult. The main
hazard is the educated and thinking
citizens. He needs a lot of money to change
their minds. The GST is an excellent window
of money. He has to divide the money between
the people and his supporters, and some for
buying support and enhancing popularity. He
has to deal with the learned group; pay
them, giving cash incentive and gag them
using seditious law. He chose his own AG,
transfers officers in the MAAC, giving a
wide power to the police chief.
Whatever the outcome is Najib has to compute
his life span. Like Mahathir he has to
battle against nature for his longevity. He
is 62, Mahathir is 91. Rosmah is much older.
It is commonly believe that ladies lead a
longer life than men. We can almost certain
that Najib will be a Prime Minister for at
least 30 years more. Mahathir will not be
there anymore or his mobility is confined in
his room. A lot of young people will have to
suffer all along those years. Our ringgit
will be as good as the Indonesian Rupiah,
where everyone has the chance to be a
The international community knows the level
of corruption in Malaysia and knows the
origin of the 2.6 billion in Najib's
personal account. They cannot arrest Najib
for the crime committed in Malaysia and for
stealing the money that do not belong to
them. People involved in money laundering
may be jailed but not Najib. But for the
first time in history the West will know
that a Malay is not dumb and stupid, and can
be smarter than many Anglo Saxon Americans

THE CREDIBILITY OF NAJIB'S INVESTIGATORS
Why the credibility of Najib's investigators
The answer has to be obvious. He picked his
own men to run the show, to investigate
something as instructed. If he found his
chosen men deviated from the course, he
would select a new team. Also he surely has
to prepare to get the favor the opposition
team in any way possible as he had done to
several individuals including to the Perak
DAP's representative who jumped ship.
The statement of the new PAC chairman was
clear enough for people to make conclusion,
"Najib has been accused of misappropriation
of 1 Mdb fund for a long time....." He
should not have the objective of the
investigation to clear Najib from slander.
PAC was to find out the truth, to get all
the documents, to identify the authenticity
of each of them, secretly check whether the
money was there as stated and to follow the
How could the committee arrive at the
conclusion when many documents were refused
to be given by the 1Mdb ? The logic is
simple; 1Mdb is under Najib, so was the the
chairman of PAC. The two opposition members
are easily controlled and fixed.
the chosen AG by Najib, had said before when
clearing Najib, that there was no need to
investigate 1Mdb as it was perfectly okay.
Today the former officer of 1Mdb was almost
charged with negligence.
The public yell for the legal action against
the Wall Street Journal for it's continuing
attack on the Malaysian Prime Minister. The
devious effort has tarnished Najib's image
world wide. If Najib is not guilty as
charged by the media then legal action has
to quickly proceed.
It is most likely that Najib did not read
the PAC papers. His advisors read and
chopped to pick the parts they love and to
discard the rest.
