STRANGE AND UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA

WHEN A MAID
The maid I
told you about rang me up yesterday telling
me that she is coming back but has no money
to buy the plane ticket. Her husband is not
fully recovered yet and will not follow her.
At Madura island they have no job. I asked
her to borrow first and I will reimburse
when she arrives here. It was a great relief
as I heard of the news. I could pass part of
my labor to her to ensure I will have a
needs to phone all others who had been
employing her or else they would have taken
new helpers. But I doubt she did it. This
time I planned to honestly tell her about
thieving for not all Malaysians will
confront maids who were found stealing
directly except for very valuable and
expensive items. Most will not hire or
reject the dishonest maids without telling
the reasons. As such they would lose their
talked too spoke the same things about
maids. Everyone said maids stole things.
And I will
also tell her about the comeuppance or Karma
of being dishonest. Bad luck will befall the
family at home and they will never cease to
be slaves forever and die as one, without
having enough money all the time. It is the
sins that they made that they reap with
maid like her earned about RM3K a month,
much more than working with a single family.
But she need to be fetched from her home.
She told me that where the house to be
served was far she had to take a bus half
way. She had to pay a rental of RM250 a
month, and sent home the big bulk of her
earning. Her son who was suppose to make a
business had been failing to run one.
I called her
Mila. That is not her real name. Maids
always used nick names and tried to hide
many things about them.
Anyway I have
done much to my house, repairing the leakage
pipe, clearing the fallen leaves and
poisoned the weeds and the grass. The
foliage turned yellow and dropped dead. I
will have to give a clear instructions on
the way to use the weed killer; the need to
use face mask and the rubber glove and the
method of spraying it by studying the win
I never asked
anybody, not even a maid, to laundry and
iron my clothing, or cleaning my shabby
radio shack. It is just a feeling of
responsibility, something that could be
traded with money. Mila had wanted to iron
my shirts but I disallowed her. And she
took about 4 hours to complete her work and
I paid her at least a RM100. She would not
waste her remaining time. As always she went
to render her service again somewhere else.
She said she get between RM50 to RM70 for
it. She had so much money that some were
stolen by someone I thought by her own male
friends who always frequented her abode.
There were some Indonesians reside in her
area. One of them was a thief. And I told
her of my suspicion.
meantime I just take care of my home alone.
It keeps me a little busy and jolly.
ABDUL RAHMAN RAOF.
Mila always reminded me that
should I take a wife, she must
be strong and healthy and good.
"Take a wife who can take care
of you or else you have to nurse
her when she is sick," she told
me. She suggested a woman of 45
plus as the youngest. I am 70
and not man enough to satisfy a
woman of that age. She laughed
when I told her.
She has somebody in mind from
Madura. If I want she would
arrange it for me. Of course I
just smile. Marriage is not like
buying fish in the market.
It is not an easy thing. You
can throw the bad and stale fish
as you like but you cannot do it
with human being. There is a
burden and a big commitment.
And one is bound to hurt each
other in our speech and deeds.
At the moment I feel at peace
and happy staying alone. I am
very free to do what I like and
travel where I wish.
I have a
small saving in ASB, the annual interest of
which is small as compared to Bank Rakyat
and the Public Mutual. While others were
rushing for more dividend and profit, a
friend of man told me not to be greedy.
"Stay put with your saving and never hunt
for more" he said. Other friends encouraged
me to buy hold for the value will never
decline and the profit was great.
I stayed put,
did not moved away my saving to any other
profitable agencies. There were numerous
advertisements in the newspapers, trying to
convince people on the profitable
investments in gold and the off-shore trade.
I always remember the Pak Man Tello craze. I
discouraged others because it was never
logical to reap a big profit within
short period. Yet teachers, government
officers and even Head of Departments became
the big Towkeys, I thank God for instilling
into me a strong discipline to contain
Years later I
read in the newspaper about the lost of
offshore gold investments. And I reaf about
the fake gold dipped in real gold giving
very much less value than paid for. I had a
big laugh, really a big laugh.

it is called BALASAN ALLAH and the English

mentioned by the normal Malays is CASH. It
means whatever mayhem done on others will be

person who committed a dreadful and sinful
act does not have to wait to be punished by
the Al-Mighty in the next world.
We also have to ponder why some notorious
criminals escaped the comeuppance or
punishments in this world.
I don't think they do. We just do not know
and in what manner.
As to those criminals before our eyes we

STEAL A COUNTRY WITHOUT BEING KNOWN ?
It is imperative
for us to recollect how Malaya
passed hand to the British. It
was never known by the bulk of
the ordinary citizen. There
weren't TV, papers, radio or any
form of circulations. The
citizens were busy with their
daily livelihood. All the
transactions, the agreements
were made by a handful of
people, the Sultans and the
Temenggong. There were no wars
and no protest by the Malays who
were mostly farmers and
fishermen. The rulers get what
they wanted, still recognized as
the Head of States and earned
handsome income from the
Taking a country
did not mean the British had to
bring Sepoys from India and
stationed them in every kampong,
taking the ownerships of land
belonging to the people. They
just made rules and regulations,
run the police force and created
the army, introduce legal
systems and judges to preside
over the court houses. There was
a power to arrest and punish of
those who broke the rules.
Taking a country
by conquest is almost unheard of
though Iraq, Libya and
Afghanistan seemed to like one.
The United States does not rule
those countries directly. More
subtle methods are applied. More
new ways adopted.
To take a country
the master does not need the
consent of the populace. He has
just to deal with the leaders or
the head of the target nation.
The more desperate the leaders
are and the more corrupt they
are the easier will be the task.
Since money is King then rain
them with as much cash as they
want. Beautiful ladies would
follow to entertain these
leaders, provide them with
ecstatic sex. Quietly and
cautiously coax for agreements
of various types. Buy land with
the highest price and say for
the prosperity of the country.
As land change
hand the leaders will tell the
masses that these are all for
the benefit of the people and
the prosperity of the nation.
The master begins to create
puppets who will entertain the
people with lies and propaganda
"for the prosperity of the
country and for the benefit of
the people". The populace does
not know that their country was
already sold. A country is taken
away without them knowing it.

practices of the Master will
begin to seep in. You wouldn't
know your country is being sold

How Far Can we Hate A Person ?
It depends on an individual makeup. Some
people are very forgiving on matters
other than money. Others may be to hurt
to forget. You may have heard about a
man who sodomized Muammar Ghadafi even
after his death and continue shooting a
dead man on and on out of an intense
hatred and anger.
I never forget things said or done on
me. I may forgive but I may not forget.
But running away with my money would
make me hate a person till his death. He
does not exist as a man I once know. It
means I will reject all his invitations
and matters of sickness and death. Of
course Islam forbid such an intense
If his acts does not inflict mental or
physical pain on me but only having his
own belief contradictory to mine I may
not go to the extend of causing hurt on
him. The most is I will avoid him.
Between the mosque Imams and those who
still follow the burial rites and
who interned Kassim Ahmad with respect,
we can judge whom we should give our
utmost respects. It is not a matter of
their siding with Kassim's view but they
believe it was their moral duty to treat
a dead man.
The Imams just excommunicated like the
Christians burnt those they took as a
witch, even by the mere suspect.
I wonder how Kassim would be treated if
he were a man with ready money to throw
to anybody he wants to. You all have
seen Mahathir who was once a powerful is
being treated today.
Take your time to ponder and observe the
truth in your imagination.
not a religious man and I really don't
know what the Quaran and the Hadith say
about it. My view may be in conflict
with my religion, Islam. It is about
Kassim Ahmad. He passed away recently.
There was a controversy because no
mosque and no Muslim official want to
give him the Muslim burrial ground,
saying that he was an infidel. Finally
he was buried in no man's cemetery.
a couple of question to ask my Muslim
friends who read this article.
Firstly, if any Mulim were to meet a
Chinese corpse somewhere in a remote
place, what is he going to do ? Ignore
the dead body ? Dig a hole deep enough
to bury him ?
Secondly, a Muslim is found dead in an
Australian desert and he was found by a
Christian Australian, what do you expect
the Christian to do as to the later the
Muslim is an infidel ?
had been a picture taken on a few
American armies who urinated on the dead
corpse of the Iraqis and angered fellow
Muslims everywhere. What then do the
Muslims expect the Americans to do ?
is our stand on the infidels ? We cannot
have any relationship with him at all ?
Cannot accept his gifts and supports
?Cannot talk and touch him and wash his
dress ? But our social intercourse with
them are close and cordial. What is
allowed and what is forbidden ?
notice carefully our UMNO leaders only
talk of Malay unity rather than Muslim
unity. Racial division is created by
almost all of the UMNO leaders, always
the MALAYS and the CHINESE ( Ma Hua ).
Any mention of Chinese in this
particular essay means Ma Hua, not the
Chong Hua. And we have been debating
which is more important, the Muslim
Unity or the Malay Unity. remember there
are thousands of Chinese Muslims in
Kuala Lumpur itself.
heard of a discrimination between the
Malays and Indian as well as Chinese
Muslims, indicating that the race is
more important. Then Kassim Ahmad is a
Malay. He is not a Christian, a Buddhist
or Hindu to be cremated as one of them.
you if a devout Muslim is buried in a
Christian cemetery with a Christian
cross in a Christian land, that won't
make him a Christian. And vise versa
that if you buried a devout Christian in
a Muslim cemetery, he won't be a Muslim
by such a burial.
any Muslim and any Christian "Are we all
not the creature of God ? "
the Jews, Hindus, Christins and even
Atheists not a creature of God and that
if they aren't we swallow them in any
way we like ? The Holy Book of the Jews
might say hat the non-Jews must be
treated like dogs and they can be
killed, but you need to ask the Muslims
in the heart of Israel are they treated
like the animals and tortured like one ?
However Kassim Ahmad has been buried.
issue here is not so much on the believe
and religion but it centered on living
in a community and society. Either we
like it or not we must not stay aloof
and refuse to join the congregation the
society makes during marriage and death,
contribution of various kinds, involve
oneself in community work, and other
join venture. If we reject people then
the people will reject us. The problem
with Kassim probably he stays away from
in life we need to be a hypocrite.Kasim
Ahmad refused to be one.

intermittently. I watched the Youtube

Then I went out to have my winter jacket

preparation for the trip during the cold

the grass and toiling the land. But 80%
of my small land is covered with soft

Shops that sold these stuffs were either
closed or moved to a new location. At
China Town, I made inquires from shop to

root killer were in liquid form and they
were quite pricey. I bough a bottle of

mix the liquid with water.

outside area is cleared. I need to
finish the job by tomorrow. In the
meantime I mixed the weed killer with
the water again and went to spray just

RADIO - COST FACTOR
preferred my own CW trainer and my own
electronic logging. I am no more active
in developing software for sale or own
use. One of the items I put in the
logbook is the simple dipole antenna and
a yagi calculator. I incorporate the
formula in it for a quick result,
avoiding copying from other people.
the simplest and the cheapest antenna.
You don't have to consult an expert or
get people to come and fix the antenna
up. I would use the formula
476/frequency to get the length. The
antenna handbook, the ARRL and the
articles on the websites will provide us
with a more accurate formula, not only
the 476 stuff.
ham with a low budget is recommended to
start with this cheap antenna and a
cheap rig. The cheapest of the
Indonesian home made is about RM1.5K for
20, 15 and 40 meters. A branded one is
RM2.5K. Unlike the old rig, the new
transceivers need a separate power
supply unit, costing between RM300 to
RM600. It is not an optional object,
without which the rig is dead. That
comes to about RM3K for a start. And
another costly but an essential item is
the coaxial cable. I would estimate it
to be RM600.
did not mention is the antenna tuner
because some operators cut their antenna
to match the frequency, climbing up and
down to adjust for the lowest SWR. But I
would advice a tuner even for a new
comer. This simple gadget with coils and
capacitors could cost an amateur
operator as much as RM800. It is worth
the investment as it gives us the leeway
to operate on a greater spectrum, say
from 14.005 to 14.350. There is no need
for the operator to climb up and down
the hobby drains quite a substantial sum
of money, even for a simple setup. Added
up to this is the declining value of our
currency compared to the neighboring
countries. It automatically pushes the
price up. Situation will never be better
and will continue to deteriorate day by
if you are loaded with money and wealthy
enough even to own a helicopter, you can
start straightaway with a high end
station with a tall hydraulic tower
system, a sophisticated rig above RM12K,
a system which can automatically rotate
your log periodic antenna to the
direction towards the call sign of the
country, the powerful linier amplifier,
and a shack with a complete accessories
and essential items like an expensive
thermometer and a 24 clock. I think at
least a RM100K is quite a comfortable

radio has lost the exotic essence of
it's grandeur and dignity. Rogue people
with vulgar words have been aired on the
air and repeaters. It is similar to the
basic economic principal of demand and
supply that quantity determines the
price. Too many goods lying around would
drive the price down. It's scarcity and
high demand would push the price up.

RADIO ROUND TABLE
operators are still quarreling on the
operating procedure. I noticed an
emotional outburst in expressing a view.
The root of the problem is amateur radio
in the 21st century did not begin with
the SWLing. It started with racial tone
and condemnation and jealousy at the old
hams for no logical reason. ASTRA
emerged out of such a feeling, as
suggested by the name itself. And I
remembered how the old hams were
condemned on many things that drove them
away from the band. Then there was no
SWLing as the old amateurs used to have.
been a SWL with the number 65162. Most
of us listened to the conversations for
at least two years and we knew almost of
the hams. We visited their homes, talked
on their radios and learned many things
from them. SWLs did not claim we were
better than our elmers. And what I am
about to narrate now may be scorned by
many of you. But I am telling what we
were experiencing when we were the SWLs.
hams met among themselves on 40 meter
band. Several frequencies were used,
mainly 7030, 7035 and 7040. The CQ
calling was made after the office hours.
The number increased one by one and it
went to even 7 persons. If the number
was too big they might ask for the
permission to ask someone out to have a
separate chat on different spot.
were groups from Ipoh, Penang, Kuala
Lumpur and mixed participants. Idris,
Eshee, Tengku Archie, Rajamani, Arvatar,
Ari were usually in a group. Hock might
join them. Chong, Chow, Leong, Ewe and
Chin might be in another. There are many
more that I am not going to mention
here. The Malaysians boys were using the
round table type of QSO. This had been
the practiced for ages. Not the
Indonesians. When the Indonesians broke
in to join there was always a confusion,
and they had to break the tradition and
the the Malaysians tend to forget what
the topic of discussion were. The
Indonesians went back and forth.
the roundtable mean ? It is like a
circular motion, a group sitting around
a round table. Let us say there are 4
persons around the table A,B,C and D. A
will pass to B, B to C and D to A. In
between there might be questions and
answers for example while C was
explaining something, A might interrupt
to ask a question. C answered his
question but passing the microphone to D
for his turn.
the roundtable there might be a late
comer as he had just returned from work
or someone who had long been listening
to the conversion felt to contribute or
some had a message for one of the
member, he would break in by mentioning
his call sign. You may want to know when
can a new comer give his call sign. This
is when the art of talking comes into
this art ? It is the art of pressing and
un-pressing of PTT when talking. When a
person starts talking, he presses the
PTT. When he stops talking he un-presses
it. Usually we un-press the PTT at the
end of each sentence.
listener usually broke in when the
station comes to the end of the sentence
or stopped talking. 9M2EG and a few
others like to use the word 'break'.
They were always accepted. But used the
full call sign. Once in a while a joker
just caughed and everyone would know who
round table the new person was given the
honor to take the mike. He might want to
add to the discussion, to tell any news
or to call someone out to be with him
somewhere else. Whatever his intention
was, he would pass the transmission to
the next person. Say E broke in while B
was talking, the next person was C. The
round table started to move again.
one forget whose turn ? he would have
just ask the group, "Whose turn next ?"
a mandatory style to follow ? Nobody
mentioned about the mandatory practice.
Malaysians just did that for decades.
And we the new comers just followed
them. By the time we became hams we
would master almost all the
technicalities, helped by being the SWLs.
None of us would come up with a new
system and philosophy because none of us
were too smart to lead the world. To us
ham radio is not a platform to parade
our prowess, smartness and technical
genius. 9M2RS, Rashid Sultan, was one of
the persons who worked for 9W license,
and he is a Dato' but never bragged to
show what he did and calling himself a
Dato'. I never spoke to King Hussein.
Rusli did. the Jordan King gave his name
just as Hussein. I spoke to Saudi Prince
who gave his name as Ahmad.

MAGIC POWER OF EVIL
I watch Yif. Then I watch Dynamo. The
documentation on Dynamo convinced me
about Rosmah Mansor. Yif and Dynamo are
not the ordinary magician with hidden

The documentary says they are using real
magic with the help of either Djin or
Satan. Then I remember of a lady in a

people. And now I begin to believe in
the strong power of Rosmah Mansor. She
knows she is very strong. She tried to
use her power over the world leaders
like Putin, Obama and Trump.

believe comes from God.

following a group tour. Today they want to
maximize their profit, cutting hotel
lodgings as much as they can, and putting us
on the bus from 7 am in the morning till
almost midnight, making you tired and

at Berkley Pratunam. Just now I was looking
at a Muslim Hotel, Al-Meroz. After the 50%

deterioration of ringgit it is about RM325
per night. For three nights stay it would
cost me about RM1K.
I was just
thinking of having the best of the Halal

another RM1K for the pleasure of sight
seeing and luxurious meals. No shopping.
Just to get away from my boredom.

because of the Halal food I would not have
followed the Muslim tour agencies. Many are
arrogant and think that they are giving

word that I can use is arrogant. They are
always more expensive than the Mandarin or

could afford to spend about RM20 for each

RM100K per year to travel. They reserved a

It was in
1981 that I went to Ohio Athen school to
acquire knowledge on Vocational Education.
Athen is about 3 hours away from Columbus
where the airport is. There were many
Malaysians at the school taking various kind
of courses. Combine with the other Muslims
the total number was quite large. I stayed
with a family, Abdul Karim. One of the
subjects I took was Statistical Research.
Malaysian friends warned me not to take the
paper as it was hard to pass. There would be
at least 60 percent failures. Many of them
took the simpler disciplines like Takraw and
Badminton. I told myself what benefit could I
gain from those fields.
I was lucky
in my class there was a Korean girl, a
university lecturer in Korea who knew about
the subject very well. She was kind enough
to tutor me every evening at the campus. And
finally the test came. The professor called
it a quiz. I don't remember the duration of
the exam time. Surprisingly within 10
minutes many Americans students handed the
test sheets, when I was still struggling to solve the
findings using a chi-square. Me and the
other foreign students utilized the whole
hours. Outside the room I saw a few American
students and said, "Wow...you people must be
genius..." They smiled and said, "Oh
well...either we know or we don't. No
point wasting time
sitting in the room...". A
few days later the result list was pinned up on the
board. I got an A. The Korean A- or B+(I
don't quite remember), probably an A-. The

Summer break I took a Greyhound bus to his
abode. The ticket was very expensive. At
that time I computed it was about RM250 of
Alor Setar to KL's equivalent trip. I met many
Malaysians in Bloomington, the Malays and
the Chinese. I kind of like to this place.
When I went back to Athen I discussed my
desire to make a transfer to Bloomington
School. The Korean girl wanted to follow me
but I told her my wife would be coming. I
pitied her. If I were still single then, I would have
married a Korean wife by now.
that the authority in Indiana asked the Ohio
side of why I was given a working Visa. There
was quite a discussion between them. I heard
vividly what the lady said, "He is our
guest." Finally Indiana also agreed to gave me a
working Visa. That's how things work there.
I applied for a family home home in Indiana.
As my family arrived we straight away
entered the house where my friend stayed. He
came back to Malaysia about a week earlier.
Most of my
classes were at night. That was the time
when working people were free for further
education. There were mothers, grandmothers
and grandfathers. There were farmers and
office workers. I also had PHD candidates from
Canada and the United States, the military
officer, the Egyptians and the Africans. I
was the only one from Malaysia. One of the
interesting courses I took was Public
Administration and Finance. It is quite a
hilarious to notice that after Mahathir took over
and until mow we were doing just the
opposite of what I had learn. To me
privatization is an evil.
Some of the
Malaysians were too busy to know the
performance of their countrymen, who were
smart and who were not, who scored CGPA 4 flats
and who didn't. I didn't
bother to be busybody. I never let people knew what my CGPA was. Until today I didn't bother to

I have 6 weeks left before my scholarship

computer school for a place. I gave a long
thought to it. I was to serve the government and
my students not to elevate and satisfy my own

I have been to places where I never dream
of, from the young age of 18 till 70. And the traveling program
will continue as long as I live and as long

I had been
traveling alone by myself for many years to many places and
had encountered all sort of people, from
beggars in Disneyland area California to the
homeless. I had been mugged and robbed by
the street people in Downtown Los Angeles. I
saw fantastic and beautiful villages and
landscaping, hundreds of big fish swimming
against the water in small brooks, and small
towns beautifully laid out, jovial and kind
people all over. It was just fantastic. When
you follow a tour group you tend to be among
the group members.
Imagine how I felt when I saw heads
of institutions cutting down trees and
knocking down toilet wall to deter students
from smoking. And mind you generally the
landscaping and the arrangements of building
structures of non-Muslim countries are
always better than the Muslims. Have we lost the aesthetic
sensibility in us ? Look at Al-Hambra, built by a Muslim

remind myself that there are better people
than us and there are more unfortunate

in his wisdom, honesty, sincerity,

asked me to look for a wife. It is not a

about predestination has been a widespread
discussion mainly among the Christians since
the Middle Age in Europe and later among the
Muslims till today. It is a deep and
profound topic beyond this page to pen down.
Mankind are required to strive and to work
hard all the time, then leave the rest to
destiny. As far as I am concerned I just did
as asked but on most cases they are a kind
of reflex actions as response to
environmental stimuli. I followed the wind
as it blows.
As I never
dream to land in Hawaii and USA, I also
never dream to set foot in Tel Aviv and
Haifa and the whole country of Israel. But I
did. Of course it is nothing to be proud of.
It just never cross my mind about it. If you
are a little observant you will learn many
things from the visit.
At the young
age I never have any sparkling fantasy, to
be where I were and be as I am now. This is
what I would call fate. It is my destiny to
be just a normal mediocre man. There are
millions of others above and below me.
Thanks God for the providence.

the Morse capability resided. There wasn't
any in Alor Setar. So I got to go to Penang.
I would have not passed the exam if a
machine was used.
I was sad to
hear that candidates who get through the

a very discouraging phenomena. It never
happened in the old days but has become

know these people are capable in Morse codes

around naked in my kampong without knowing
what shame was. We cooked and bath using the
water that we captured from the sky using big
vases and any containers available. If we

more than 17 hours. It is a pain even on the

with them are proofs that he is not a
Kleptocrat and a crook. That was what he
said and what the rest of UMNO people
reverberated. Never mind about tiredness. He
can go and stay in Trump's hotel again.
It could not
be that Najib is ashamed to show himself
there. If he is he would have resigned a
long time ago and let someone to take his
place. He hasn't any because he believes he
is right in doing anything at all. Nobody
saw with their own naked eyes about the
money that went into his account, about the
SRC money that crept in the same bank, how
he used public funds to boost his image and
how millions were given to people who
supported him. Nobody can show proofs. And
now even the Muslim clerics support him.
Najib may be
aware that all eyes are on him but not his
officers and Ministers. The Chinese and the
North Koreans are always wanting to
capitalize his weaknesses. The world
embassies are watching all the politicians
and government civil servants and the
judiciary systems, and the nature of freedom
and democracy as claimed by Najib.
And he does
not believe that the declining ringgit and
economy are due to his bad management. He
blames the opposition. Of course we are
asking ourselves to what extend the
investors listen to the opposition,
convincing enough to follow them.
Is it worth
to turn his back on UN and put a total lean
on China ? This scares me. I believe China
already regards Malaysia as a vassal state.
She will make sure Najib will live forever
and happily stroking his back. As Najib's
loving phrase Cash Is King has become a part
of his blood, the Chinese will apply it on
him and the rest of the party members.
Now there is
no turning back to the United States. He is
too far in Chinese border. Remember Rashid
Mydin and Samsiah Fakeh, the two Malay Communists
who stayed in China ? Can't we make a point

CORRUPTIONS AND MISDEEDS
When money is
given to you in return for a favor the
question of corruption arises. Money given
in proportion to the service given or for
the goods purchased in good faith are not
categorized under corruption. As such we pay
for the bus ticket and to a person who labor
his service to clean our home. Say a million
is paid to you to lie and cheat and to do
other misdeeds are corruption and sinful.
But a million
given to you without any ulterior motives to
be distributed to the needy is not. In many
circumstances we would know whether there is
a motive behind it. A minister in parliament
had said, "The people are ungrateful. We
gave them money but they did not for us." I
did not say it. You did not say it. It was a
minister who said it. Is not the same as
'You scratch my back and I scratch yours' ?

a colossal sum of money behind our back
solely to prevent rebellion could be viewed
in different perspective. I would say 'take
the money' and resign from the job. Compute
how much is enough for the old age and
donate the rest to the mosques and other
needy people. And pray for the person who
gave the money so that he would be a good
man one day. Yes, take the money and quit
the job. Therefore the element of corruption
is removed and no misdeed is done.
All boil back
to honesty and sincerity. When everybody
sees through you as a sincere and honest
person you will earn a due respect from 90%
of the people. Another 10% are people who
will always yell at any good or bad man, at
whatever good things they received. They
could be ignored.
his duty to God too. He must believe in
sins, hell and heaven. Hell will be the
abode for a man who supports thieves and
murderers and he cannot bluff God saying
that he does not know the bad intention of
the giver. And he cannot say that he only
does his duty and obey his leader. He cannot
pretend not knowing the evil purpose of the
giver. It is his duty to find out the truth
by various means and methods. He cannot
simply dismiss proofs just because his
emotion says so.
It is our
duty to save our country from destruction.
Warnings have been given by many people. If
you don't heed them you will bear the
taking the money is not wrong if you avoid
doing misdeeds. Just quit your job after
taking the millions. Fear not because God
will side you. Evil will be destroyed. The

DO NOT SUPPORT MALAYS ?
Electronics closed shops and the Minister
blamed the Malays for not supporting the
Malays. Since I have not been to those shops
I don't know what were the products put to
sale. There were several reasons why the
Malays did not go to the shops as much as
they turned their back on the KR1M chain
stores. It was probably goods sold by MARA
electronics were more expensive than Lowyatt.
Secondly there were not much choice and what
is most likely the people hated Najib.
There is no
question of the Malays supporting the
Malays. I foresee there will be a much
greater hatred among themselves as one
section who will blame the other section for
voting the increase in GST and supporting
Najib for making life is more difficult.
Looking at the general Malays there will be
no bloodshed in spite of the intense hatred.

The hatred towards fellow ethnic group will
loom to the ill feeling towards
Islamic clerics who were seen as the strong supporters
of the sinners and who corroborated in the cause
for the increase GST and other taxes. The poor
non-Malays may extend their hate towards
When a group
of Islamic leaders were seen practicing
un-Islamic behaviors the sight is very
repulsive. They were parading the bad image
of Islam. How about sending the Malay
gangsters to throw chairs and sleepers at

saw the arrogance of Tengku Adnan, Zahid and

something like rugby in the United States.
What we called football here is termed

with American football. In Europe ticket for

of equivalent Malaysian ringgit to watch
tennis or football or soccer. And they

it is AFFORDABILITY.

RM40 for a game between my state,Kedah

final match. The first match was at Selayang,
Selangor, where Kedah edged Selangor 3 goals
to 2. Kedah team is not consistent enough.
The last match against FELDA we were
disgraced by our opponent by quite a big
margin. I noticed the tactical move deployed
by FELDA but not Kedah. And tonight Selangor
will field an Indonesian, Andik, to put
Kedah in a great turmoil. It looks like the
coach did not instruct our players to mark

sprint like a 100 meter runner, while the

EVERYTHING WITH MONEY
People of our

have money but cannot buy what we want
because they are not there in the market. We
have money but we cannot fly on airplanes
because there are no more vacant seats. We
may have money but we cannot buy a wife

handycam but I could not find one in any of the

unforgettable experience of my failing of

from stepping outside our realm into the
world of the rich and the powerful. We can't
afford to purchase

Perlis expressway. The former route is more
heavy with traffics and the road is curvy
like a snake. However I took the old road
and started my journey at 7.30pm. I never
expected the bumper to bumper traffics as
there were slow drivers, going only about
40km/h. Rather meeting with disappointment I
decided to go alone. There was no rain along
I arrived the
destination about more than an hour later
and present myself at my favorite stall at
the end of the sea-food complex. I
selected 3 pieces of crabs and four small
squids. Both were to fried, the crabs using
spices which we called Garam Kunyit and the
squids cut to small pieces and soaked into
wet flour to be fried. Once ready and the
dishes were laid on the table I was
surprised to see the squids were too much.
There were crabs, rice, vegetables, a
doubled apple juice and of course the
squids. I didn't wait long because at that
time there was only one family there. Then
the number of customers multiply.
The size of
the crab is small, 20 times less than what
you may find in San Francisco Bay or at

meat was compact, worth the money paid for.

places ? Quite plenty if I may say so. The
best one and not so pricey is called Anjung
Kuala about 10 miles away. It only operates
at night. Located at quite a remote place,
night driving is extremely difficult and
dangerous for people like me. And secondly
they did not cook as what we instructed them
to do. In town Krabi restaurant is good but
each meal would cost me about RM50. A small
crab is sometimes meatless and yet they
charged me RM26 per crab. As I briefly
narrated a restaurant in town charged me
RM65 on a small meatless crab, 2 small
prawns and a small fish.
I would avoid
the restaurants that did not follow

still have to pay. It is a typical of most

At time it is
wise to ponder why your customers always buy
from you. I am sure I am not the only one
who buy with reasons. Most people keep to
themselves, do not announce to the world
of what they do. There are people who
frequent a food vendor mainly with the sole
intention to help him/her, giving support
out of pity. I knew one elderly lady selling Goreng Pisang near the Buddhist temple whose
husband has passed away and I knew the owner
of a gas station who is not far away from
this Goreng pisang stall. For the petrol
kiosk owner, he employs several boys to attend the
customers to give jobs to them when he could
have run the station with only one helper. I
support him for the same reason, helping him
to help other people. It is not the maximum
profit that matter most, rather the relation
between his soul and God, the feeling of
responsibility. Likewise a few cents that
goes to the goreng pisang woman could help
her with a small sustenance.
We don't have
to go to shops where the salespersons or the
sellers do not show friendly attitudes,
arrogant and greedy. The other night I went
to a restaurant to have a meager lunch with
a small crab, two small prawns and a small
fish; I was charged RM60, a shock of my
life. No wonder there were only four or five
customers only were seen. Buying two packets
of Nasi Lemak by roadside would filled my
stomach for only RM2.40.
Remember that people who sell the packed nasi lemak are mostly from the poor folks.

some of my friends that they too have
similar intentions of supporting and
to contribute a small sustenance to the poor

I also wrote about my meeting a Chinese

good things to other people and animals is a
form of solace. It gives a feeling to
oneself that a duty has been done.
As a human

imperative. I believe the engine yellow

customer friendly. These were the Malays.

The populace. especially the Malays, believe
very much in Najib and believe that UMNO is
their savior. There is no question about it.
Even PAS, the party that once labeled UMNO
as heretics and infidels nod their heads of
approval and believe what Arulkanda talked
about 1Mdb. They were impressed and
appreciative when 1Mdb sent the Muslims to
the holly land.
By the way I
remember the 6 day Arab-Israel War where by
numbers and the Muslim countries were
confident they could walk all over Israel
within hours. They did not expect the major
historical disgrace that is still persisted
till today. Najib too possess the fear, a
dreadful feeling of the possibility of
losing the battle that made him look at
Australia, New Zealand or Uzbekistan as his
new home. He knows that if people believe
that he stole their money for his wife and
family comfort he is done and may be accused
of murdering Kevin Morais.
He has to
send messengers all over the country to tell
the people that he is not a thief and a
crook. To me he will continue to lie so long
as he is not cornered like he lied to the
parliament about the cash in BSI bank in
Singapore. When there wasn't any he said it
was in UNITS. When his denial about him
keeping a big sum of money in his account

it is the displaying of the disappearing respect in

I have not been in favor of
Dr Mahathir during his tenure and after his
retirement. At the helm of Anwar Ibrahim's
trial they were several people who were
known to conspire met their death in
mysterious way. But not Mahathir. At that
time I asked my friends whether they could
guess why Mahathir was still live ? The reason I
hated him most was he sent stealth special
branch into mosques and madarasah and even
the festivals of wedding feast to spy on the
people. Several outspoken religious clerics
were arrested. I said God wants us to see him
punished in this living world.
We were not wrong.
But it does not mean Najib is
the righteous man today, neither a man to
represent God as some of his Ministers
claimed. I did not find living under
Mahathir was economically bad. We had the
subsidies, a high ASB dividends and good and
foodstuffs were cheap. I do not find it
justifiable for Najib to spend money to
boost his image. I knew the 1Mdb issue was
not not started by Mahathir. And I see
clearly how Najib is ruining the country.
I believed that the fury of
the Al-Mighty over Mahathir was on his
remarks on several religious issues. By
mysterious way God made him to choose Najib
for the comeuppance. And now he is facing
it. The man he chose had been seen as the
worst man in Malaysian history by one
observant man in my village even when Najib
was a defense minister.
I foresee Najib as the last
Prime Minister and the remaining history of
Malaya under a Malay leader will be under
his family line. Malaysia will be under
Chinese stealth rule, managing the nation,
either directly or through an invisible

from now he will be as old as the ex-Prime

wife will be facing for I will die long
I still believe that Najib
steal the 1Mdb money. When the money was in
his account he was quiet about it. Years
later after the WSJ exposed it he denied. It
took several months for him to come up with
the donation story. It is this much that I want
to say about my believe.
This is the first time after
several ministers that subsidies are
cut, GST was introduced and the cost of
living soared. I compared our condition to
Thailand and Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei
and with other nations, and I see their
growing prosperity. I am amazed by the Thais
who are beating us by leap and bound. The
Thais gives priority to their agriculture
while UMNO does not.
Our poor and plunging economy
is not due to the world economic catastrophe
but it is due to Najib's sheer lavishness.
Whether Mahathir is alive or
dead, angel or devil, I am looking forward
to give a vote to the beautiful hibiscus.

It was this morning that I

But when I was searching for the same
article again this evening I could not find
it anymore. SR had the time to catch it and
published the same article I read. To me it
is just an opinion and it is up to us to
agree to to reject it. It is lucky the FELDA
people and the Malays do not read this or
else doubts will emerge in their minds on
how the meeting did really come about.
I also read about the
impeachment of Trump.
Surely all eyes will be on
the behavior of the whole of Malaysian

that Rosmah brings bad luck with her the
fate of Trump will follow that of Obama. And

1. Who put Najib as Prime
This question has been
answered before by UMNO, PAS and Najib
himself. It is God. One Minister said those
who disobey Najib means they are disobeying
God, either enhancing the PM to the level of
God or giving him a divine status.
2. If Mahathir was a dictator
who worked with him to execute his order ?
If Mahathir was a dictator
who would feel the pinch of his dictatorship
? Of course not the UMNO members. We the
people and Lim Kit Siang felt the pain, the
mental agony and hardship. I myself didn't
like Mahathir. So were thousands of others.
But how come we can forgive him for his sins
over us but not Najib ? If Mahathir was a
dictator he has a sense and a conscience. He
has shame and he did not sell Malaysia off.
HE STEPPED DOWN. Dictators won't.

and Rosmah to Bonny & Clyde, and said that
Rosmah was the actual Prime Minister. Of all
the Ministers spouse it is Rosmah that came

robbers without any shame and conscience.

To save Reza,
Rosmah's son, Najib is willing to go to any
extend and pay as much as Trump wants. They
planned the discussion to be done more
secretly and privately at a longer hours.
That was the reason why the White House
meeting was short and brief. At whatever
cost Najib wants to win and willing to
settle the damage by any amount, to which I
think he will be successful. UMNO will use
this to blazon in the media for more than a
week or even months until the General
Election. On any account Najib will win.

citizens will have to pay a very high cost
to vote Najib back to power. Only with the

Najib is in outwitting Trump he will not be
able to do so with the Chinese. The Chinese
sub-marine docked in without any fear of our
retaliation. To them the desperate Najib is
in their palm. It is a chance they are
waiting for, that Najib will ask them for
more money and like Ah Long they will give
him the money to replenish the dry coffer
that goes to 'make America great again'. To
them they might regard Najib as a sick man
to help a rich country financially while
letting his own citizens suffer.
somewhere in my article, a long time ago, I
already mentioned of how America will get
involve in Malaysian affair by cruel policy
of Najib. I even said there might be a
covert action to setup an ISIS group. Nobody
would have believe me and dismissed it as a
crazy notion. And today we see Najib is so
desperate to buy DOJ's off by offering a
colossal sum of money from the meager
pittance we have left. The result will be either
the citizens will be squeezed or we have to
sell our sovereignty to China.

Street Journal and the New York Times are
not so-friendly Newspapers in the United
States lambasting Najib as Kleptocrat and
splashing his face with multicolored paints
of dishonestly and corruption. Najib in
fighting back said Malaysia practice greater
freedom of speech, democracy and the rule of
law under him than under Mahathir. We don't
know what's the media going to do next. Many
expect the media will be asking Najib about
the 2,6 billion in his account and the
dismissal of his deputies and those who
wanted to know more about 1Mdb during the
media conference. Will he say DOJ is lying
about all the transactions ?
We will see
the outcome of the post meeting when Najib
returns to Malaysia. At the moment what I
can say Najib is at the gambling table. He
may win or he may lose. Even winning the
election with the help of China the case of
theft and several murders will not be closed
and forgotten. Investigators will have to
establish whether it was Najib who killed
Kevin Morais and Najidi. And the unfriendly
people in the United States may be running a
covert operation to deal with him.
