NAJIB AND KHASHOGGI
you know who Khashoggi is ? This was the man
who was killed in the Arab Embassy in Turkey.
The suspect was believe to come from the Royal
Family of Saudi Arabia.
HOW TO AVOID UNNECESSARY ILLNESS
In a man there live reason and sentiment, that
he never conscious of their roles. To what
extent they could influence a person physical
health is unknown. Jealousy, bad feeling, anger
and tantrum seem to be correlated with a
person's health. His blood pressure tend to be
at the unhealthy level.
Observe the emotional outbursts of individuals
in the social media like the Facebook. We could
somewhat guess their state of health. I observed
a friend for quiet some time at his irrational
behaviours and unnecessary anger at a slightest
thing, ended him in multiple stroke.
You may not agree with me if I were to point out
at TG Haji Hadi and Annuar Musa who were having
cardiovascular problem. They both showed their
anger and feelings by their talks. I have always
guessed that Noh Omar and Ibrahim Ali are having
the hypertension problems.
To reduce the risk of the unnecessary illness,
one has to keep cool when facing any hot and
controversial issue. Facts and cases must be
patiently examines. Try to avoid worry and think
of the alternatives. We have to remember that
progress happened as people were overcoming the
obstacles before them.
The advantage of the believers is that they can
always either surrender or appeal to God when
they come into encounter with hardships and
I am just an ordinary man. The other day my
drone dropped and break into pieces. If I were
to worry about it and think about the money
lost, it might affect my health in one way or
another. I can always buy another one.
The world will be a better place to live if
everyone appeals to reason on any issue, mild or
chronic in nature. To date we can still contain
the World War Three despite the tense
confrontation of nations of different ideology.
We cannot force a person to follow our
philosophy and our beliefs. He can choose his
own way of thinking and doing and be ready to
brace with any form of consequences.
Medical sciences will state the cause and the
effect. At time they can predict a precise time
of a person death. I do not reject the findings
of sciences but I also believe in the mystery of
the unknown, of the power of God. You can wish
for God to be with you or you can put away the
work of God.
TRYING TO SAVE NAJIB AND ZAHID THROUGH CHAOS
We know what Najib and Zahid are heading to to
save their necks after they know that they will
not escape being thrown into incarceration. They
retort to creating chaos in the country so that
the military will take over. They start the
spark by pouring fuel to raise hatred, anger and
fear among the Malays that the non-Malays will
take over the country and wipe the Malays out.
The current events may influence some of the
Malays, but not all of the Malays.
Rather than talking through rationality I prefer
to seek the working of a mystery though it may
be considered as irrational and absurd.
The success of Najib's plan will be determined
by his luck rather than by his effort. It was
from the beginning I maintained that whatever
Najib touched would turn into mud, even before
May 9 2018. The dark cloud that hovered the
country was his wife, Rosmah Mansor who carried
with her a dreaded evil aura.
Najib highest stun was trying to buy Trump with
a huge sum of money through lobbying and the
game of corruptions, which is now becoming a hot
issue in the United States. What he thought
would clear his name and image has in fact
worsened, and I believe Najib may even be
arrested in the United States for money
In the meantime Zahid is mobilizing his
supporters to spread the racial hatred as to
create tension and using the MCA to demand for
equality in all aspects of life to make the
danger looks real. The idea is to create a
MAGERAN like the 1969 scene.
If the bad nimbus is still on Najib's head we
can be sure the bad omen will fall on him.
Let us wait whether USA will issue an arrest
warren on Najib.
BUKHARY RETIREES MET
We were all retirees. The common factor here is
we all had work in the same school, SMK Syed
Mohammad Albukhary. I was there for only three
years, from 2000 to 2003. Three of them were not
with me together but I knew them all. My
previous school was just across the road where I
started in 1980 till the end of 1999.
The gathering was small but fun. They discussed
the coming activities such as visiting the
special needs students of the school and making
the best of the remaining life. Since most of
them are seasoned travellers, travelling was
included in the topic.
Though we joked about everyone was never growing
old, truly I found three teachers looked exactly
the same as I last saw them 15 years ago, Cikgu
Fauziah, Cikgu Khatijah and Cikgu Narmi. Of
course I was the oldest among all.
We collected RM50 for the lunch. Cikgu Khatijah
was picked up as the treasurer. The food at this
restaurant, Medina Thai Jalan Stadium Alor Setar,
was superb. This was where they chose as a
I wasn't an active participant. I listen to them
most of the time for I felt I could not match
their capability and vigorousity. I made them
known of my senility and the disease of my
The two hour gathering was fun and meaningful.
MY MAVIC PRO DROPPED
It is disheartening without any known reason my
Mavic Pro took a sudden dived at less than 100
feet, hit a concrete roof, pushed by the strong
impact to the side, and fell onto the road. It
broke into pieces. I bought it in January 2018
and had to say good bye in November 2018, less
than a year.
I informed the shop where I bought the drone but
they showed me an indifferent attitude. I chose
a peaceful mode, putting the blame on a mere
fate. The incident of the crash was not around
my area but it was almost 500 miles away while
trying to capture my friend's home.
But it was the time when I developed the
sentiment of distrust towards Mavic Pro for it's
swollen batteries complained by many users
worldwide. In fact I had been looking for an
American or European made drone about two months
It was disheartening because I paid a huge sum
of money to buy the drone, It was 5K which is
now sold at about RM3K. I always consider the
alternative cost when purchasing anything. For
the drone price I compared with buying a car. A
small car would cost me about RM25K. To spend
RM10K for a drone is half of the car. One really
serves me and provides comfort, and the other
gives me no substantive benefit.
A smart TV I bought more than 15 years ago is
still serving me well with it's 3D, connected me
directly to the Youtube and entertains me all
the time at the same price.
I have enough saving to buy a new drone for
photographic purpose despite my computation on
the opportunity cost, the lost and benefit of
another sacrifice. But it has to be a durable
one, not with a bad battery.
Malaysia doesn't have the American made drone
distributor giving an impression the local
businessmen are guarding the Chinese products. I
am sure many of you who had bought Chinese
products found you have been cheated by the
online sellers. I have at least 6 items that
have to be thrown away.
I aim to have an Autel Evo which is almost
similar to Mavic Pro. The American drone lovers
are shifting their taste to their home made
toys. Even before buying it I know it is better
than the Mavic Pro.

THEY SHOULD BLAME THEMSELVES
BN has been ruling the country for more than 60
years. Didn't they see the future of the country
? It was more than 50 years ago I had spelled
what's would be coming of the country to a group
of UMNO people. As usual they had been haughty
and arrogant. In fact the whole bunch of the
Malays I encountered were suffering from
If they are not happy with the present
environment and situation, they should know that
the whole events happened during the reign of
BN. It could not be under the 6 months rule of
the new government. UMNO had been a braggart
throughout the 60 years. Some of them have died.
There are the living ones, still enjoying their
If they are not happy with the present, they
should blame the past. The past was UMNO and BN.
It is this party who had carved the country till
9th May 2018. They ended up with the culture of
stealing, wastage, corruption and gangsterism.
The final hell is Najib Razak.
Nobody would want to listen to a small man's
view. Even how wonderful the idea is, nobody
would give a damn. To me they are burning
themselves. And they hope the country would run
into chaos and civil wars in order to save
themselves and hoping they could be in control
The final fall is blamed on the opposition
instead of on Najib Razak himself. Najib sacked
Ghani Patail and soon after Kevin Morais was
killed. He did not take court action against WSJ
and DOJ. He banned the parliament from debating
1Mdb. He transferred officers whom he knew would
be threats to him. He banned Tun Mahathir
picture from being displayed throughout the
country. He banned a political party formed by
He is telling the world that he is an infallible
man. He is perfect and flawless. He brag of his
greatness. The UMNO men and women prostrate to
Najib as if he was a God.
The Malays called for UMNO to oust Najib but
From the beginning till the end, it was nobody
else to be blamed, but UMNO themselves.
NO NEED TO FLEX OUR MUSCLES
Ham radio is not a place to flex our muscles,
how smart we are and to show our prowess. Our
idea is to have fun chatting over the airwave to
our friends who reside in our own country or
those far beyond our borders.
I noticed that several new operators who just
acquired the Morse certificates were sending
their Morse codes at a speed of about 35 words
per minutes, and started their logging in
contests. To these people I would like to
suggest that they should join the high speed CW
group, at least by going into the Youtube and
look for N6TT. Here is where the chatting is
between 25 to 35 words per minutes.
Sometimes you can hear him on 40 meter band
coming from California with a good signal. Steve
would follow your speed in replying to your
call. But if you watch him you will find that he
copied the incoming messages with his head. He
did not use computer sending and receiving.
When you are working Morse codes with another
hams who are very slow in sending, you do not
have to come up with 30 wpm. If he sends at 12
wpm then reply back about the same speed. When
you find he is already good at his speed, you
request him to raise a little bit faster.
We are not to parade our skill to our
counterparts. Just go and find N6TT or JA1NUT
and chat with them at your high speed.
We are not annoyed by the high speed you send.
But we are annoyed when you do not answer the
questions we asked, or you keep on repeating the
wrong call sign that we have made corrections.
In CW we have to move from counting the dashes
and dots to sound recognition. At 30 words per
minutes upwards we recognize the sound shape of
the words. It takes resilience and hard work to
constantly monitor to the high speed CW.
Once you are really good then find a match. If
not you have to follow the other man's speed.
The phenomena of showing one's prowess did not
exist in the old days. One tends to think that
talking to astronauts every now and then makes
him the top ham in the country and he should be
given a special privilege by the authority and
the rest. Or a Datuk, a prominent politician and
a PHD person should be the leader in running the
WHEN CORRUPTION IS BEYOND THE BOUNDARY
have seen previously Jho Lo presented to DOJ
that his wealth were gift from his father. It
was the same format as Najib claimed on the
donation. But USA did not buy the lies. The
crooks continue trying to bribe even DOJ and
American Presidents. They have moved beyond the
boundary. As I said before trhat Najib was even
trying to bribe God by sending the Malays to
make pilgrimage with 1Mdb money.
until now he is using his hidden wealth to bribe
whoever he can including the judges and those
who can implicate him in the murder of Kevin
Morais and the others.

Attempt to influence DOJ 1MDB probe - Jho
Low-linked US$73m seized
The US Department of Justice seized over US$73
million from bank accounts linked to fugitive
businessperson Low Taek Jho, as stated in a
civil forfeiture claim filed with the US courts
The money, amounting to over RM300 million, was
deemed to have been derived from alleged
unlawful activities – including bank fraud,
conspiring to commit bank fraud and false
statements to a financial institution.
The forfeiture comes following the DOJ's
allegation that several individuals assisted Low
by funnelling tens of millions of dollars into
the US to pay individuals to lobby high-level US
This was to influence, among others, DOJ
investigations into the multibillion-dollar 1MDB
case and related civil forfeiture proceedings of
several of Low's assets.
It stated that these individuals believed they
had to disguise the fact the money being used
for lobbying came from Low, as the latter and
his money were viewed as "toxic" to US banks
following the DOJ probe.
Earlier today, the DOJ announced that George
Higginbotham, a former DOJ staff, had
to aiding the "principal architect" behind the
1MDB scheme, by conspiring to deceive US banks
of the source and purpose of tens of millions of
dollars sent from overseas to finance a lobbying
campaign on behalf of foreign interests.
According to the filings made with the District
of Columbia District Court, four seizures from
several accounts were made from the period
between January to July 2018.
Of this, US$25 million and US$11 million were
seized from two Citibank accounts held in the
name of Higginbotham Law PC.
Meanwhile, another US$37.6 million was seized
from an account at Morgan Stanley bank under the
name Anicorn in March, and RM21,113 from an
account at Wells Fargo Bank under the name of
Artemus Group in July.
In the court documents, the DOJ alleged Low's
money was "funnelled through various US bank
accounts set up by, and under the control of, an
entertainer and businessperson named Prakazrel
"With the assistance of George Higginbotham,
Michel opened multiple accounts at financial
institutions in the US to maintain money
funnelled into the US at Low's direction;
however, the true source and purpose of the
funds were not disclosed to the banks and were
actively concealed from them.
"At all relevant times, Higginbotham, who was
employed at the DOJ in a non-lawyer position,
was not involved in any way in its investigation
of Low and failed to influence any aspect of
it," said the department.
It was stated that it was Low’s brother who had
sought Michel’s assistance in 2016 to secure
representation for Low in the US to assist the
latter on the 1MDB civil forfeiture
The documents also stated allegations that
Michel and Higginbotham met with Low in Macau in
2017 to discuss ways to continue to funnel the
latter’s money into US financial institutions to
pay those involved in the lobbying campaign.
"Michel, Higginbotham and Low, and others
disguised the fact that the funds came from Low
because they believed no US bank would accept
Low’s money in light of the publicly-filed civil
forfeiture actions in the Central District of
California and the announced pending criminal
"Michel knew that Low was toxic to US banks and
that US banks did not want to deal with him or
accept Low’s funds."
A press statement sent by the DOJ today
pertaining to Higginbotham's admission said he
was alleged to have committed the offence in
Higginbotham had served as the senior
congressional affairs specialist at the DOJ
between July 2016 to Aug 2018.
The lobbying was meant to "resolve civil and
criminal matters related to the DOJ’s
investigation of the embezzlement and bribery
scheme concerning 1MDB."
"In order to conceal the identity of the foreign
principal behind the lobbying campaign,
Higginbotham admitted to conspiring to make
false statements to financial institutions in
the US concerning the source and purpose of the
"Higginbotham also admitted to working on
various fake loan and consulting documents in
order to deceive banks and other regulators
about the true source and purpose of the money,"
the statement read.
The DOJ also stated that the 46-year-old
Higginbotham admitted that the lobbying campaign
also attempted to persuade "high-level US
government officials" to remove another foreign
national residing there back to the latter's
country of origin.

ISSUES WITH EXABYTE WEB HOSTING
The main Exabyte issue is the human workers.
They have modifying and adding files and folders
without being asked by the clients. The programs
that have been running very well suddenly
changed in it's display due to the missing
files. You need to upload the missing files
again. This development have been irritating. I
suspected the technicians love to do this
changes as well as looking and studying the
codes made by others.
One should not expect the technicians can
resolve your problem. While chatting with them,
they may leave you alone. I would have guessed
they went for a cup of coffee. Surely the client
will not wait for them to come back and go his
own way to do his job. A few hours later when
you come back, you will find they will say the
issues were resolved.
I have had problems with Mysql database which
did not open up when it was called. They have to
pass to the engineer to resolve it. I have
problem with the email that could not be sent
via the server. It has not been resolved till
I think the technicians are not competent
enough. Whether it is relevant or not to their
work they must know ASP, PHP, JAVA, PYTHON, C
and Visual Basic.
These few days I have two issues that were not
there before. The first was when I went to
qistina.net, I found there were two files
missing. The second was when I could not log
into the control panel. It looked like the panel
was managed by different people. If you were to
see my conversations and emails with them, you
would not want to buy web hosting from this
company, the EXABYTE. I ran the resetting
passwords procedures for two days it simply
could not work.
I request them to put the password that I gave
and I would changed it immediately after I
entered the CP. They insisted me to use their
randomly originated temporary one, that
repeatedly failed. I gave up and told them that
I would have to travel to their Penang Office to
About 4 hours later I used the password that I
gave them to log into my CP and i was
successful. I immediately changed to a new one.
We don't know what kind of employees working in
Exabyte. I found the Chinese were very competent
as a few issues were given to the Chinese to
solve them. The rest are as good as useless. So
much so I suspect they are either from India or
private schools and colleges. Probably they are
playing around with the codes written by the
clients for their own benefit.
EXABYTE should be dissecting their all round
weaknesses. There are ways to test these people
to understand what made their customers went so

LOYAR BURUK CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE
is no visible and concrete evidence,
circumstantial evidence should be taken into
account. In the cases of Hussein Najadi and
Kevin Morais murder we saw the activities of
Najib's lawyer, Shafiee. And the death were
related to money that Najib had his hands on.
are witnesses who can be called to tell the
events that lead to the death. In the latest
murder stories had been told how Ghani Patail
was sacked and replaced with Apandi. Looking at
the whole process of court proceedings against
the accused it is not difficult to sense the
real murderer. I am not going to relate farther
what did not make sense about the said
public prosecutor can put Najib in difficult
situation and probably admit that he did not
order the murder. What has to be established is
whether Kevin was murdered because of he was
about to charge Najib Razak.
government should not take this murder case
lightly. And never say that thy could not find
any tangible evidence. Once Najib is charged
many will come forward as the government
witnesses. Lock him without any bail and court
proceedings can be made the soonest.
course it was Najib himself who went to push the
trigger. Even nodding his head or signalling the
killing is enough to find him with the others
guilty as charge.
are millions of Malaysian who believe Najib was
the culprit basing on the circumstantial
evidence. It was beyond reasonable doubt that
Najib is guilty for the murder of Kevin Morais.
That's the verdict of people's court.
UMNO IS DEAD IN MY HEART
Pakatan Harapan becomes a bad government, I will
not vote UMNO, after having faced a very
arrogant and despicable leaders. What more if
Zahid is leading the party. We have seen his
countenance and speeches before the GE14 and
after. I am not wrong to say these people are
very filthy. And we are not wrong to say that
Najib and his gangs are hiding billions that
belong to the rakyat. After robbing the money,
they have the guts to ask for the new government
to pay back the money they stole. They are very
unethical and immoral.
PAS is a
strong party. The party does need the support of
UMNO except for the money. The bad name of PAS
among the non-Muslims was due to the party's
support on Najib. From the beginning we could
trace Najib was lying. He took a long time to
answer the question on the 2.6 billions. And
even that after he was cornered. Both logic and
common sense would tell us Najib was guilty and
PAS was seen to support thefts and criminals.
Thus the image of Islam was too bad for the
alternative party for me is PAS.
now I find the PH is doing extremely well
despite much constraints that cause by the

among the politicians who will always put fire
to gain support and popularity. Once they are up
there they will forget those who voted for them.
And I don't believe in the special right of a

done enough to build up independent and
Najib and Zahid are fighting hard to save
themselves. They would go any distant trying to
achieve it at the expanse of a civil war. We
will soon find out whether Zahid has anything to
do with the temple flair up.
DO I TRUST ZAHID ?
temple riot was just an opportunity to create
chaos, which I believe, the master plan of Zahid
and Najib. The criminal has seen there is no way
to escape punishment for the alleged crime done.
One by one the dubious intention of Najib's team
were exposed in the parliament, seen and heard
by the Malaysians.
Zahid Hamidi and Najib's capability in ordering
the murder of Kevin Morais and Hussein Najadi,
millions would have guessed their covert role in
planning chaos in the country, taking advantage
of the new policy of PH government to do away
with the cruel way of suppression. If BN were
still to rule this country the suspected trouble
maker would have been arrested without bail. But
they now know that they can go free without any
charge on inciting the riots.
Najib-Zahid gang had thought they could use
parliament to clear their names. Instead Najib
had been stripped. We saw the old PAC chief was
fumbled and observed the way he was lying. It
was a great insult.
believe the police will find out who were the
real arsonists. Were they the Indians or were
they the Malays ? Out of the many Malays, only
one was carrying out the order. He might be
hidden, and watching the tumult from behind. The
man with the gasoline to create the fire, I
believe, is Zahid Hamidi, concurring himself
with the kleptocrat.

even pulled the bed ridden CJ to side them.
Hamid reminded that the battle is not over. The
non-Malays will continue to fight. But how many
know that the battle had begun as far as 1902

asked, "Who said this is a Malay country ?" And
the Malays answered ," Can the Malays go to
China and claimed China belongs to them ?"

UMNO supporters of the unending battle ?
UMNO was not even born yet. Then BN had been

the MCA and the MIC do to ensure the welfare of
the Chinese and the Indians are well looked
after ? But the people can still manage it till

money lost they still claimed innocent.
thought they can buy the judges. But found it
very tricky when every detail of their activity
was being shown in the parliament. When they
were cornered and fumbled, they went back to the
court decision claiming them as sub judice. The
events in the parliament have been a clear proof
of the crime. And we saw the roles of the
government officers to save Najib.

see how far can Zahid go within his existing
freedom and how far can Najib maneuver in his
own game and how he will play with time to
invent evidences to help him.

THE TWO MANIAMS
were three Indians working with me in a school
about 40 years ago. I forgot the name of one who
would stay aloof from the other two. Those two
others were also Maniam. One Maniam was a
committee member of a temple near the stadium,
and a little fatter. The thinner Maniam was not
devoted at all, and was never in good term with
the temple member. So much so the third Indian
called him Maniam Kafir.
Muslim, I have faith in my God and and religion.
But the temple Maniam always approached me
asking for unused broken tables to be used in
the temple. They would be repaired by the temple
before used. I did not inform the other Muslim
teachers, neither did I consult the Ustaz and
other clerics for they might ban any gift to
temples and other worshipping houses.
Hindu devotees in this temple have never caused
any problem to the people. The Indians are very
friendly and we always regard them as our
brothers. Any good Hindu, Christian, Jews and
Muslim loves peace, harmony and his neighbours.
indeed the temple Maniam was more obedient, and
perform his service very well, whereas the Kafir
Maniam always play truant as a nightly guard. He
would do moonlighting to supplement his income.
He said his wife demanded so much from him;
washing machine, freezer, big size TV etc. And I
had to solve many problems for him. I persuade
him to make the side income through selling
Muruku, which he obliged. And reported to me of
his encouraging income from Muruku. His wife and
the kids ran the small business.
not ask the temple Maniam about his economic
standing. He never said anything about it. He
just told the other Maniam could not see him
face to face. The temple was not in favour of
the Kafir Maniam too. The Indian community is
not too big in this town. Everybody seems to
know each other.
temple seemed to accept the write off broken
chairs and tables. A little mending they can
become useful again. And thank was conveyed to
thought of lifting this religion nor to
encourage it's spread among the Muslims. A time
may come when our prayer places may need the

TEMPERING WITH THE AUDIT REPORT ONLY ?
beginning I have been saying that documents and
evidence have been tempered, altered or the
original one destroyed, not only the audit
report but the whole stretch of other evidences
that Najib will be taking to court. I dare say
all the documents that will be used to defend
Najib in court were tempered with, fabricated
and swayed from the truth. The correspondence

jogging track. I knew what were in their minds.

AMATEUR RADIO - POINTS TO PONDER
1. There was a CW contest yesterday and the day
before. They were all over. Signals were strong
and encouraging. I just scan around to listen.
Mind you not all stations were using the aid of
the computers. There were stations using
straight keys sending less than 25 words per
minutes. I know these people participated not to
win any award for their speeds were no match to
the other high speed computer aided contest.
Why did they join the contest then ? I guess I
know the answer as I was once participating with
a slow speed, without any intention of gathering
the points. It was all just for fun, wanting the
others to gain some scores and the ham spirit
was strong then.
2. Should amateur radio be a platform to flex
our muscle and to parade our mental capacity, to
show how smarts we are and how advance we are
from the rest ? During our days, we have hams of
various ability and achievements, of different
professions too. We would feel proud of having
such individuals in our community. I didn't know
whether there were any sentiment of jealousy
We have 2 from Royal family, a magistrate, a
scientist and a university lecturer. We were
happy as a family.
3. The other day I was watching a few newly
uploaded clips on ham radio on the Youtube.
Several clips were showing stations using
Ten-Tec transceiver with knobs and a band
switch. There were no LCD and no
micro-processors. I was amazed by the

4. Sometimes I wonder why a licence Malaysian
amateur radio operator is happy to work with
pirates stations ? Is this allowed by the MCMC ?
I remember the radio society in the country did
ask a question "Where is our amateur radio
heading to ? " Are they thinking of conquering
the moon or building amateur satellites ? They
seem not to understand what a PTT ham is, what a
LANJUT amateur operator means.

of mine, came for a free food and drink on my

about a big business with a huge profit. And

everybody about food and health, of the miracle
of medicines and how to avoid cardio-vascular

We showed Najib evidence against Jho Low, says
The Edge owner
PETALING JAYA: Edge Media Group chairman Tong Kooi
Ong today said he showed evidence of the wrongdoings
of fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho (Jho Low) to
former prime minister Najib Razak but was shown the
Writing in EdgeProp today, he said he was making the
statement following Najib’s statement, in an
interview with Sinar Harian last week, that based on
information available today, Jho Low had cheated
Malaysia of billions of dollars through transactions
done by 1MDB.
Najib had claimed he was not aware that anything was
wrong because he was not told about it, putting the
blame solely on Goldman Sachs and 1MDB’s lawyers and
auditors for allowing wrongdoings to take place.
“They should have informed me if something was not
right,” Najib had said. “They clearly failed in
carrying out their responsibilities.”
Tong said Najib “obviously still refuses to take any
responsibility over 1MDB and is blaming everyone
else and pleading ignorance. A few months ago, he
put the blame on 1MDB’s board of directors.
“Najib claimed he was not aware that anything was
wrong because he was not told about it.
“Over the past four years since The Edge, which I
own, had its run-in with Najib’s government over our
exposés of wrongdoings at 1MDB, I have refrained
from making any public comment on what happened back
“I have also not said anything in public about how
the matter was handled by Najib, whom I have known
for more than 25 years. I felt it was best left to
investigators to do their work.“But I think it is now time that some things be told
because Najib’s act of innocence over 1MDB and Jho
Low should not be tolerated any more,” Tong wrote.Tracing back the history of 1MDB, Tong said it was
started by Najib in 2009 and the first deal it did
was a US$1.0 billion joint venture with Petro Saudi
International (PSI), which eventually rose to US$1.8
billion in 2011.
“Not much information was revealed about the
progress of that joint venture between 2009 to 2013,
by which time 1MDB had accumulated debts of over
RM38 billion, including raising three bonds
totalling US$6.5 billion with the help of Goldman
Sachs to buy two power plants and to develop the Tun
Razak Exchange (TRX).
“Starting from December 2013, The Edge began to
scrutinise all these transactions,” Tong said.
He said his weekly questioned why 1MDB had overpaid
for the power plants, the land in Penang and the
huge fees of over US$600 million to Goldman Sachs.
“The Edge also asked why 1MDB had three auditors in
five years and cast doubt on how it could pay its
mountain of debts given that it had not much cash
Tong said The Edge’s reports, from December 2013 to
December 2014, led to personal attacks on him and he
was accused by certain bloggers of publishing fake
negative news as “he had taken short positions in
“We traced one source of these attacks to a person
using the blogging handle Ahrily 90. We discovered
that the same Ahrily90 had also made vicious attacks
against Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Nazir
Razak who, by then, had also openly criticised what
was happening at 1MDB.
“Even more significant was that Ahrily90 was also
behind two social media sites that promoted Jho Low
as a successful and charitable businessman.”
Tong said the chance to get solid proof came when
The Edge was told that Sarawak Report editor Clare
Rewcastle Brown knew of a whistleblower who had
evidence of wrongdoing to share.
“On Feb 10, 2015, The Edge publisher Ho Kay Tat and
I met Clare in Singapore and we were introduced to
Andre Xavier Justo, who had worked at PSI as a
senior director. The documents and emails that we
received from Justo were the proof we needed.
“It took us a few weeks to go through the documents
to piece together how much of the US$1.8 billion
that 1MDB invested in the JV with PSI were siphoned
out by Jho Low and PSI founders Tarek Obaid, Patrick
Mahony and Prince Turki.”
Tong said on March 6, 2015, at 10.45pm, he met Najib
at his Jalan Duta house. This was at the request of
Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, the then Baling MP and
chairman of Tabung Haji and also close confidant of
“Najib started by telling me The Edge was wrong and
that the problems of 1MDB were its business model of
carrying too much debt. There was no theft of money.
“I told him otherwise. I shared with him information
that I believed was proof that it was all a scam,
with Jho Low at the centre of it. I explained how
the accounts were made up to report a profit and why
I believed the cash was all gone.
“After about half an hour, he relented and told me
he would shut down 1MDB. He didn’t say what he was
going to do about the debts.”
Tong said he told Najib that Jho Low must be held
accountable and be prosecuted.
“This upset him. He immediately stood up, walked to
the door and asked me to leave. I was taken aback
that he was so sensitive about Jho Low.”
Tong said The Edge decided to publish its first
exposé based on the documents received from Justo.
The cover story, titled “Shahrol, Please Explain
Good Star, the money 1MDB paid the company and why
you took instructions from Jho Low”, hit the
newsstands on March 7, 2015.
Tong said Paul Stadlen, Najib’s media adviser, met
him on half a dozen occasions, initially to persuade
but later to threaten him about The Edge’s reports.
“Stadlen made it very clear that any attack on Jho
Low was an attack on Najib, and that he was
conveying this message from his boss.”
Tong said he discussed the situation with Najib’s
brother Nazir, who had been working closely with me
since 2014 to find ways to uncover the shenanigans
at 1MDB so that action could be taken. Nazir was
also under a lot of pressure to back off.
“We agreed that we needed to seek help from Tun Dr
Mahathir Mohamad and flew to London in April, where
he was at the time, to brief him. We felt only Tun
Dr Mahathir could do something.
“Aside from Tun Dr Mahathir, Nazir and I also met a
few other government leaders. I met Tan Sri
Muhyiddin Yassin, who was deputy prime minister.”
Muhyiddin subsequently spoke up and paid the price
as Najib dismissed him as DPM and sacked him from
On July 24, 2015, the home ministry suspended The
Edge weekly and The Edge Financial Daily after the
daily published a Page 1 story titled “How Jho Low

economic sabotage and I was barred from leaving the

evidence and he shut us down to shut us up,” Tong
THE WEEKDAYS AND THE WEEKEND TO THE
MALAYSIAN HAMS IN THE YESTERYEARS
Timetabling was meaningful to the few
hundred hams of the yesteryears. On
Sunday the local band ( 7mhz ) would be
filled starting in the morning. At about
9 am there would be a net where we
gathered not merely to check our signal
strength but to find someone that we
want to talk to. As usual it started
with the emergency and priority traffic,
then moved to the most Northern state of
Perlis and slowly went to East Malaysia.
And on every Sunday there was a MARTS
council meeting on the air. There was no
disturbance from the rest. We just
began to move out of the band before the
Muslim Maghrib prayer.

after the office hours to populate the

THE MALAYS ARE PAMPERED RATHER THAN
TAUGHT TO BE DILIGENT
I was lucky to be working in Chinese
school for I learnt much of their habits
and culture. As the year end every class
would produce their own class magazine
though the quality of the paper is much
less than the school magazine. The
students were in many ways very
independent. I never came across any
poor parent who did not pay their kid's
school fees or any other educational
expenditure. After form 5 many went into
successful business undertakings. The
school heads would cane the students who
fail a certain subjects in the monthly
test. Public canning went on despite the
ban by the Ministry of Education. There
was no opposition from the Chinese

economic competition. They will end
themselves in doing stupid things. They
will become lazy to forecast their own
future and let the world passed by

to choose the simple subjects in order

THE WISDOM OF POLITICIANS
Neither the PAS nor PH government show
wisdom in dealing with the Natives, the
Orang Asli. Both, the Menteri Besar of
Kelanan and Perak, are inhuman and
savage. My term for them is BEAST. No
amount of reasons and arguments given
The natives have been living in this
country long before the Malays stepped
into this land. We don't know how they
became Kings and claimed the ownership
of the whole country. Imagine a man
intrude into your home and claims the
house belongs to him, showing all the
documents with him and says your grant
Intruders came in with guns, weapons
with pen to write laws and regulations,
and imposing it as if it comes from God.
The Orang Asli had been practicing their
culture without any pen to create any
book of law. They did not have any
weapon to enforce their rights. Who are
these Menteri Besar to claim the land in
the country belongs to them ?
Human behaviours are very despicable.
They robbed the inhabitants of the
forest of their land for the benefit of
people with money, the greedy lot of
evil business community and the
inconsiderate politicians. Where is the
wisdom of the Malay leaders who are
suppose to show good examples and
majestic attitudes ?
They looked like savages rather than
rational human being. It is shameful
It would have been wiser for these Chief

Utusan: Najib ordered audit report on
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 23 — Datuk Seri Najib
Razak ordered the original audit report
on scandal-plagued fund 1Malaysia
Development Berhad (1MDB) to be altered,
Utusan Malaysia reported today.
Quoting an anonymous source, the report
said the former prime minister wanted
his involvement and fugitive broker Low
Taek Jho, or Jho Low, omitted from the
report prepared by then auditor-general
Tan Sri Ambrin Buang.
The audit report was said to note
Najib’s knowledge of the mismanagement
It reported that the amendments were
made in a meeting at the Prime
Minister’s Office with
current Chief Secretary Tan Sri Ali
Hamsa, then Malaysian Anti-Corruption
Commission (MACC) chief Tan Sri
Dzulkifli Ahmad, and Najib’s chief
private secretary Tan Sri Shukri Mohd
Last month, Ambrin had
insisted that nobody had tampered with
his report, as he had full authority
It is understood that
same report has been presented by
Auditor-General Tan Sri Madinah Mohamad
to the Parliamentary Public Accounts
This comes as Najib claimed today that
his relationship with Low was strictly
professional and was forged with the
country’s economic interests in mind.
The former prime minister also blamed US
investment banking goliath Goldman Sachs
for failing to safeguard Malaysia’s
interests by not alerting his
administration of Low’s efforts to
defraud the Malaysian investment firm.
THE CROOKS ARE PLAYING

gang are playing a new game, blaming Jho

as well as a Finance Minister was

letters to move 1Mdb's money. This is
the kind of man who will blame the gun

He himself claimed of his smartness and
experience enough compared to the rest

Malaya University, and boasted of his
prowess. We also saw him twisted and
spin words during the parliamentary

for. We do remember Apandi waving

money went to. Those documents were not
done by Jho Lo either. It was not Jho Lo
who ordered the alteration of the audit
report but the Prime Minister himself.
Was it Jho Lo who ban questions on 1 Mdb
in parliament ?
Najib persistently said the 2.6 billion
that went into his account was from the
emised Arab King. He had been using it as
a weapon and defended his innocence all
along. He broadcasted it to the world.
Only DOJ's investigation and the Arab
government themselves dismissed it. Never once did he say it
was from Jho Lo. How could the young
China man fooled him ?
There was a picture showing Jho Lo in
Najib's troupe to China.
Last time Najib said that he simply
signed the letters without knowing their
contents. Is he saying that it was Jho
Lo who forced him to sign them ? Under
duress ? At gun point ?
If Tajuddin knew Jho Lo was a fake,
would he just advise Najib ? Nay....he
would run amok and will stop his boss by
force. He would pull Najib away from any
danger. It was not only Tajuddin but
everyone of us would act more than
giving advice. The smart Tajuddin is
just another liar. He too will have to
pay for his satanic demeanours.
NAJIB, YOU FORGOT GOD
Dear Sirs Mr Najib,
From all your actions I can conclude
that you forgot the God Almighty is
seeing you all the time. May be you do
not think God even exist at all. But I
know that you have been lying most of
your time, selectively to suit yourself.
You also have a brave quality, braving
yourself to encounter your friends,
subordinates, enemies and even King to
say words in your favour. You thought
you can make use of the Arab King to
declare that it was them who gave you a
huge donation and to agree to admit what
your lawyers have written.

and Hillary Clinton. Your did the same.

would have given his opinion on you

And you have the gut of boasting that

President, giving you a special
treatment that even Tun Mahathir would
not have received.
And we will never forget how TV3
blazoned your rhetoric, boasting of your
successes. You were the best ever Prime
Minister of this country.
If you have remembered God you would
have lied, going too far overboard with
them. ALL others are wrong except you.

The auditor-general's report on 1MDB in
2016 was "amended" on the instructions
of the prime minister Najib Abdul Razak,
Citing sources, the Umno-owned daily
reported that the amendments involved
the removal of information regarding
Najib and Jho Low's involvement in 1MDB.
"The amendments, according to the

maintained that Low had nothing to do
with 1MDB despite mounting evidence
unearthed by other countries
over the past few years.
It has been established that Low played
a key role in securing the services of
bankers Goldman Sachs to facilitate the
issuing of bonds worth billions of
ringgit for 1MDB.

charges in Malaysia, Singapore and the

executive powers, is currently facing
money- laundering charges in Malaysia,
among other charges.
You still ignore the power of God the

hard to apply the principle CASH IS
KING, probably using Shafiee to use your
stolen money to corrupt anybody that may
come your way.
It is sad that you still do not perceive
what the public know you in and out to

very sure you ordered the murder of

I was having a problem with my Drone, A
China made toy, having three of the
batteries went swollen. And I read many
complaints on the same issue. The
hobbyists in USA are lucky because they
are now having the choice of replacing
the drone power supply with the US made
batteries. And more lucky for them they
have the US made drone almost similar to
Mavic Pro by the brand name AUTEL EVO.
Autel is not available in Malaysia.
My email to the company received
somewhat a brief information that they
have yet to set up the dealers in the
Asian region. It was not just for
selling the products but also to provide
similar services equal to what they have
in the United States.
I sent a message to a business man, a
radio friend, as I know that he has an
established company. "Are you interested
in importing US made drone ? " He
replied that he had some interest and
wanted to know what sort of drone. I
sent him the name "Autel Evo".
Because he mentioned he was interested I
decided to see him and talk about it for
an hour or so. I went to buy a plane
ticket on a day trip. The return ticket
cost me RM335.
Then I messaged him again asking him at
what time he could see me. He replied
back saying that I was a scammer and
that he was busy. I didn't have his

friend, Rusli, that I wanted to capture
his home using my Mavic. I brought
my drone along plucking a new battery
for the venture.
I didn't mind if the other guy refused
to see me. I didn't mind about my RM335
plane ticket. The days are not always
Rusli has just returned from the cold
countries he visited. His wife was sick
due to the long trip and the change in
weather, from -15 Celsius to +32
Celsius. Rusli himself was not feeling
well. There was a drizzle at Ensteik,
his home, the whole morning. We went to
have some breakfast and telling stories
on the experience on travelling and my
drone. i also talked why I chose the
Malay company. I wanted to talk about
the webpage where it can show the
company's profile and the business,
which I was so sure he would be picked
up as a dealer and local distributer. I
do not have any pecuniary benefit at
Then the rain stopped. I wanted to
capture video of his home and the
surrounding. We made a move.
An unsuspected thing happened. As I flew
the quad copter and raised the height to
about 70 feet, it suddenly spin and
dropped. We rushed to look for it. The
drone broke to pieces. We couldn't
figure out the reason.
My Mavic Pro is gone before I got a new
I am not sad or worry with the incident.
It is one of those things in life. There
are many other drone users have lost
their drones. It is expensive though but
it is much cheaper than our lives. It
was just my bad days.
We have been seeing people in their ups
and downs before our eyes. One day they
live in a castle, another day they live
in jails. At least I am better of than
some millionaires who live in miserable
and contemptible position. We know what
have been happening to the arrogant and

ADAMANT AND THE STUPID MALAYS
It has been years since I proposed the
setting up of Muslim Economic Fund, to
raise money to finance special aids to
the weak and poor people without having
to take the fund belonging to all the
citizens. They could easily raise up a
few millions a week at the Friday prayer
throughout the country. If they cannot
trust those managing the fund, it is
they themselves to be blamed.
But this is the best way to be money
dependent and avoid confrontation over
many things. But what we have been
hearing is the UMNO braggarts are
harping and shouting at the government
for financial allocations for the
Malays. Government money is not for only
a single race. It is for all the people
of the country because taxes are
collected from all parties.
Why are hey so adamant and refuse to
address the dependency of the Malays
through their own effort, just a simple
job of raising funds which we all know
the Muslim Malays are willing to
contribute. Yes, the same task had been
done many years ago. The could collect
millions but then they did not know how
to manage the fund. And where the money
went to is still unknown till now.
I hate to these people lamenting and
wailing over money without even putting
their minds to work. the NGOs are
happily politicking rather than planning
the economic welfare of the people and
What else to call them if not STUPID.
There are many retired politicians and
ministers. There are many retired
professionals with PHD qualifications.
Rather than being a PH or UMNO
sympathisers they should stripped the
entire political entanglements and to
plan the money raising effort.
There must be a task force to kill
extremism, not basing on fear and
punishment. It also needs the
psychological approach to ease the
sentiment. The barking in parliament and
social media wouldn't solve the problems
and we have been talking about it for
Can't the Malays live without the
government support ? Can't they organize
themselves to be a forceful economic
entity ? Can't we set a system whereby
the managers will have no way to abscond
with the money or use it for useless
purposes like what Tabung Haji had been
WEAKENING OF A PROPHET
It was Ismail Sabri who elevated Najib
to the rank of Prophet Mohammad. And
Najib commanded obedience. He boasted of
his popularity and greatness and his
economic successes. He arrested,
demoted, transferred officers, and even
agree to the murder of Najadi and Kevin
Who among UMNO who still regarded Najib
as a Prophet ? All eyes are looking at
them. What Najib does not know that we
know his team has been fabricating
evidences and putting words into
witnesses and Kings. The biggest was the
donation story. And 1 mdb is perfect, no
hanky panky and every cent is accounted
for. Be blamed the new government stole
the money meant to be returned to the
owner of GST contribution.
"I am not a crook, a thief or a robber,"
he declared. "I have all the documents."
First the Arab Royal said that there was
no donation. Then the DOJ, Mr Lessner
made an admittance of guilt. And then
Jho Lo wanted to surrender the stolen
things to DOJ.
How come Apandi said 1Mdb was perfect ?
How come Arulkandamy made a road show to
explain of the real good news about 1mdb
? He turned the story of donation "I
THINK it was a donation." "Jho Lo has
cheated the government..." And when LIm
Guan Eng exposed of the reluctant of
Najib to return the GST money, he could
say anything. The whole population
His family saw that Najib is getting
weaker as the house of cards are getting
crumpled. They sent emissaries to see
Tun to do the bargaining.
When the Finance Minister stripped Najib
naked in Parliament his gang was playing
'wait for PAC report. PAC could not say
Najib was right, as proofs were shown of
his refusal to pay back the money which
was supposed to be returned in two
weeks. He blamed PH for believing the
fake claims under the new government.
But LGE pointed out it was claimed
before the new era.
Shameless people know no shame. No
But the prophet is getting weaker by
day. He should have sent his wife back
home to her kampong, to go back to her
father's graveyard and asked for
forgiveness. Her father had disown her
long before his death and the 1mdb
scandal. What a pathetic story. Amen!
HAM RADIO ELMERS
We started to venture into the hobby by
looking for elmers to learn about
amateur radio. We frequented their
shacks, studying the type of equipments,
asking them numerous questions. That
lead us to become Short Wave Listeners (SWL).
My elmers were the late Eshee 9M2FK and
Mal, 9M2MW, who is still alive and
kicking in Australia. Within a year or
two we began to know almost all the
active hams in the country. We even
talked over the radio under their
By the time we became the full pledge
hams almost all the active hams knew who
In those days there were no computers
and internet for SWLs to gather
information about amateur radio. The
only source was our elmers. We could
have one or we could have several. At
the same time we learned the Operating
procedure through SWLs.
I did not learn Morse codes from my
elmers. I made my own oscillator, read
the visual codes and recorded each
character into the cassette tape. Other
time I listened to their CW contacts and
ship to shore transmission. I discovered
my progress when as the words I copied
from the ship to shore showed some
intelligence, meaning they formed
meaningful words. Elmers assisted me in
gaining proficiency only after I
acquired the ticket.
We followed the tradition, the lingo
used and more things still unknown by
the new hobbyists. The people today
device their own stuffs, many of which
are Greek to the old hams. We abide by
the ham radio regulations otherwise we
would be banned by the authority.
Talking to pirates were never forgiven.
Nobody dared to mention ringgit and
cents. They were tabooed words. To know
the cost of something we would ask
"What's the damage like ? " or "What's
the cabbages ? " Or "What is the
resistance ?" The answers would be
in ohms, like 20 ohm or 30K.
I noticed that there were thermometers,
GMT clock. pen and peppers for CW work,
and CW key in every house I went to as
SWL. After passing RAE we get ready with
those items, and only waiting for the
Our elmers helped us in giving the coax
plugs, transmission cable and other
essential items to set up a radio
station, all free of charge. We were
expected to the do the same to those new
guys who regarded us their elmers.
It is nobody who is to blame for
whatever happens today. The philosophy
changes as the old hams were driven
away. It is hard for the old timers to
grasp the new approach and their
activities. If we observe the whole
world the new phenomena seems to be the
practice of the day.
I write on this topic as a young amateur
enthusiast in Kota Kinabalu was asking
me some questions for the guidance. In
my opinion there is nothing better than
this young man to go and look for a
prominent ham in Kota Kinabalu, 9M6YBG.
He will be able to learn many things
from this prominent ham in the capital
A neighbour caught a thief stealing a
cloth that was drying in the sun. The
thief denied it. "I don't steal
anything. I am not a thief," he
lamented. But my neighbour saw him
tucking the cloth inside his shirt. As
he took out the stolen fabric he said,
"I have done nothing wrong."
When I was a teacher we caught several
reported stolen items in the students'
bag after doing the spot check. What we
heard were the same kind of denials.
They did not know about it and they
never stole those items. Even if caught
with a surveillance they will still deny
it, or they would try to give reasons
and excuses like "...I took it as it was
just like my thing that I lost
before..." , "..they guy stole my

and relief him, he would go scot free
with the stolen items. This is not the
rule of law. There is no amount of
rhetoric and arguments that can justify
the theft that had taken place, proven
Denials are not only in the doing of a
crime but also in rejecting facts and
events that have taken place. Here is a
statement that I would like to make
"IF NAJIB HAD NOT MARRIED ROSMAH, UMNO
WOULD STILL HAVE RULED THE COUNTRY"
Of course we have to establish whether
it is a fact. The statement implies the
defeat of BN in the last GE14 was due to
the intense hatred on the Prime
Minister's wife. Watching her behaviours
through video clips and national media,
the citizens chose to oust her out of
Najib has always been denying the lost

denials are being picked up by the UMNO
supporters. But only the voters know the
truth of why they voted BN out of
People might know the truth but still
deny it deliberately as it does not suit
them, We tend to deny that we are
getting old, ugly and deteriorate. Women

What saddened us is the youth think they
are invincible and denied that they
could be ruined by drugs. And drugs
spoil and break up families. It kills
harmony and destroys tranquility.
The denial syndrome is bad when it

being. It leads to a defunct and
FILLING THE EMPTINESS
I don't look for political topics only
when browsing the web. My interest vary
from music and songs to alien technology
of free energy and inventions.
Practically I spent my time on flying
drone and making movie clips out of it.
It has been two days that I have been
watching the Youtube clips on Morse
codes. A portion of the world ham radio
operators are going back to using
straight keys for transmission.
Most of the uploaded videos were in
2017, indicating the tireless effort to
revive the ham radio essential element.
What I decide to temporarily stop is
going into programming again. That will
consume the whole bulk of my remaining
free time. In the days of Visual Basic I
commercialized a few soft wares. I am
not joking. I made a lot of money doing
But when I made political remarks
someone belittled me. I was asked to do
a better job ie go to fly drone. I
encountered with many smart guys who
even called me stupid. University grads
think they already know and master the
world, despising other and some became
braggarts. But I feel it is better to
ignore them and continue to enjoy what I
I remember in the old days we can chat
on Morse codes the whole day. But today
I can talk on flying drones the whole
day. It is about capturing beauty,
aesthetics sense of visions, combination
with normal video, the editing soft ware
and the other forms of arts. Making
movies is not just pressing the
recording button. Actually it is hard
for non-professional like many of the
Even Morse codes is not just a matter of
participating in contest. It is the
ability to decipher mentally or to
capture fast messages manually. But more
important is to make our message
copyable and understandable.
Our soul would be enriched by extra
knowledge in the world that might effect
us. The critical issue for our society
in the future is energy. We cannot be
totally dependent on oil which will be
depleted one day. People are looking for
alternatives. And they are talking of
free energy. Historians and philosophers
tried to unearth the past and popped
with flying saucer, and the alien
While alive I better fill my emptiness
with whatever I can hold on. In facts
there plenty of tings to do. Better do
it rather than eating and sleeping and
waiting to die.
Whenever I received news of friends
departing it came together with the
cause of death. Most of what were told
were heart attack. Cardiovascular
disease is hidden. We feel fit, strong
and healthy but at any unknown moment we
may feel the chest pain.
As younger people wee strike I asked
myself when is my turn. I have high
blood pressure, high cholesterol, blood
sugar and kidney problem for more than
20 years. I diagnose myself as a walking
dead man. No amount of medicine would
bring down my BP.
Once we always discussed our illness on
the ham band. In those days nobody died.
We chatted and laugh jovially. I
remember asking Chew about the danger of
my being attacked by the heart failure.
He told me that I might have been
attacked by a mild stroke which I was
not aware of but protected by my daily
exercise. Chew was a health officer
before he retired. Only a few years ago
I heard Chew had left us. At least 10 of
my radio friends had gone to meet God.
I was shocked when a clerk in my former
office informed me that the the young
office store keeper passed away due to
the same disease. Then she told me her
husband had a mild stroke.
The whole atmosphere is cold and grey,
making me sensitive to my own heart beat
and breathing. I felt the tempo of the
beating was not normal. At time I get
tired after walking just two kilo meters
in distant, though these few days I did
not feel exhausted even after 5 kilo
I love the tabooed sea-food like the
crabs, squids, and prawns and consume
them every now and then in big amount.
Someone uttered the word cholesterol
seeing my lavished consumption. My usual
response was, "Younger men must take
care of their food. Older people above
70 can eat any tabooed and dangerous
food. We are going go die soon."
There seem to be new finding on stroke.
It says stroke is caused by the lack of
vitamin C in the body. Natural vitamin C
is found in guava, pineapple and
oranges. True or not why not try them.
They are nutritious too. Guava is hard
to find nowadays in my locality. Oranges
and pineapple are available everywhere.
They are better than the tablets we buy
at the pharmacies for they might be fake
ones. I consumed the required vitamins a
little amount each day. And I would go
for a brisk walking for 5 kilo meter if
the weather is fine.
Yet I keep on asking when will God wants
to take my life away.
- BN SHOULD WIN
BN had put up their case for their
losing GE14. PH lied about everything.
We have seen all in the parliament
sitting. There is no reason why BN
should lose in Rantau as they have many
issues to use for the campaign,
including the fate of the Malays. We
have heard enough about how the PH
government has been butchering the
people. Tun was the same man who wants
the crooked bridge and the third
BN will field a very experience and a
I would not want to make any prediction
as to who would be the winner. I only
say that BN should win as the party has
enough evidence to show that PH has been
lying and does not care about the
welfare of the people.
Let us wait.
Who said that there was nothing wrong
with 1Mdb ? Nothing wrong means all
money was accounted for. No stealing. No
missing. wasn't that what Arulkandasamy
went round to tell the Malaysians ?
didn't Tuan Ibrahim of the spiritual
leader said he was satisfied with 1 Mdb
Who was the Chairman of 1 Mdb ? Who
signs the letters of approval for the
movement of the fund ?
No money stolen ? The chairman said
there was no money stolen.
Let us not talk about the audit report
that Najib made it OSA. Jho Lo had just
make a bargain with DOJ that he will
return all the stolen money by the
billions to DOJ. And the young man had
been denying it all along.
Will Apandi say he declared as perfect
because Najib asked him to say so ?
Would Najib say he did not know who put
the 2.6 billion in his account, when he
had announce that it was a donation ?
Do we need to hear from our court
anymore ? No sane person would say a man
who is dead is alive and kicking.
BROKE MANY PROMISES
The biggest promise I made was to give
some pecuniary loan to a friend. The
first request was RM300K. It was too
much and I had to say if my late wife
bequest was RM50K I might be able to
fulfil it. Later I made a deep thought
Imagine if I were to give a loan of
RM300K and the promised payment was not
honoured. I would be losing my whole
life saving. And I did not receive the
RM50K bequest. My daughter who was a
single mother get the least among
others. I had to give her about RM20K.
I told my friend that I had to break my
I had given RM500 and RM3K loan. One
promised to pay me back within a week
but until now I have not seen him. The
other is a poor small business man. I
told him to pay back when he has enough.
I can't force the poor man to fulfil his
I have written about this before but I
can't bear to see the law makers in our
parliament inciting the people to force
the government to keep it's promises
when the government is not able to
honour them. Didn't their own mothers
promised to God to raise a good and
honest children and they themselves to
obey the teachings of their religions ?
I am not telling everyone to break their
promises. Honour them when we can.
Paying back a loan is our moral and
legal responsibility. Traditionally we
don't have law and written agreement on
giving loans. There was nothing to tie
us other than our moral responsibility.
We don't help anybody by pampering them.
There is a saying that it is better to
teach a man how to catch fish than
giving him a fish a day. We don't help
them to be independent. We instil
laziness, dependency and bad habits in
Just look at the Chinese in our country.
They have been here decades. They build
their own schools and education system,
they strive to build a prosperous
country. And now we agree that they are
richer and wealthier.
And now we are telling the university
students to protest and not to pay back
the loans they agreed to pay. They are
only to pay when they get their jobs.
AMERICAN DRONE TOY
Drone market in Malaysia is controlled
and monopolized. Only China made drones
are flooding the market. dJi Mavic Pro
is one of the best China made Quad
Copter. But the flaw lies on the quality
of the batteries, which tend to swell in
less than a year and with the price tag
of above RM350. The newest Mravic came
over RM6 - RM7K.
You do not find the American made drone
here which is much cheaper and more
advance than the Mavic Pro. The
Americans will now turn their attention
in buying the better and cheapere
American made aircrafts. It is called
The market price of Autel Evo is about
USD1K. The factory price should be
cheaper. This provides a great
opportunity for someone to bring back
and become an agent from the US factory
and sell here at below RM4500.
I believe the unit
quality is so much better than the China made drones. You
just read the complaints about the
bulging and swelling Mavic Pro
batteries. I have three bulging ones.
The supplier will always put the blame
EVO comes with more sensors for obstacle
avoidance, the flight time of 30 minutes
and the 4K recording.
I have downloaded the software and the
manual on this drone and will be
campaigning it until dJI and the dealers
do something with the poor battery
quality. Looking at the advertisement
the Mavic Pro batteries are still
displaying a high price tag. The reason
is simple. There is no competition yet
of the kind in Malaysian market.
It is still hard for an individual to
buy one from Amazon. One has to hassle
with the custom and other import
procedure. I remember bringing back a
see-through telephone from Hawaii where
the custom confiscated it because I had
no import permit. A while later I saw
plenty of similar phones along the Chow
I think there will be people who take
the task of stopping the American drones
from entering the market. But
joblessness will push for the new
entrepreneurs, organizing themselves to
battle up the monopoly. We hope to enjoy
the quality gadgets freely and happily
without any direct or indirect control
from business community.
BUTCHERING HAM RADIO PHILOSOPHY
I always maintain that the once
dignified hobby called Amateur Radio
does not belong to our own grand father
and not made in Malaysia. It was born in
the West with a grand package to be
followed by those who promise to adhere
by it's rules, regulation and culture.
As it becomes an international hobby
there are myriads of people of all races
with different languages, accents and
ages were joining the brotherhood
membership. A common standard had to be
set especially the language to be
adopted as PLAIN language for
Because it was a complex hobby and there
was a need to have civil people as
membership radio enthusiasts were
required to sit for examinations.
Inclusive were the ethics to be
observed. In some countries anybody who
want to be a ham must first prove that
he must be SWL first. It was the best
way a person can learn the practices of
the operators. Through this manner the
tradition will follow.
The butchering of ham radio philosophy
began when the blind were given task to
take care of amateur radio. The
administers in the past were people to
sit for radio examinations and Morse
test themselves. In the old days exams
were in written essay form, and in
English. The new administrators are
highly intelligent individuals who have
no in-depth knowledge of the hobby. But
instead of using rationality, they apply
kindness and sentiments in running the
administration. They totally ignore the
concept of control to ensure the
sanctity and the purity of the hobby
would be maintained as a dignified
Today a licensee talks to anyone he
likes. In the old days nobody dared to
speak to one as his license would surely
be revoked for life. The authority was
always monitoring the band and had ways
to catch the culprits. Amateur radio
have lost it's dignity as more rogue
people are penetrating the hobby. When
they don't like you, they would cause
all sort of disturbances without having
any fear of being detected and caught.
Old people were very careful in using
the ham lingo, never played around with
words and pronunciations. They never
confused between the PTT and the
Microphone, the QRM and the QRN, the QRX
and the QRT. Some are preaching the
wrong things on the band thinking they
Much damage has been done and beyond
description. It is hard to revive the
I wonder what is the definition of
amateur radio today. I always remember
the key words 'not for pecuniary
'emergency purposes'. But money making
has been the goal of many who stepped
into this area. They devise ingenious
methods in generating their own income.
The best guidance one can get hold of is
the ARRL Handbook. I can't say of the
new version. But the old version is good
enough for the beginners and the old
timers. It was considered as the Holly
book for the amateur radio operators.
Those who did not own the book due to
it's high price, would put the questions
on the band and Idris, 9M2GL, would
start tom open it and read the answers
word by word. That was our main
reference. When I pointed out to 9W2TZ
that I followed my practice according to
the Handbook, he said the book was
wrong. He said the RSGB was correct.
Then I asked what was in the RSGB, he
Amateur radio is not a ground to show
one's prowess, smartness and ingenuity
in inventing words and terminology. It
is not a free hobby that one can do what
one's like and wishes.
EDUCATION IN MALAYSIA
I have always asked what has technical
education produce to elevate technical
the country's prowess. I had challenged
the technical education division to
change a new format as to the promotion
and funding of polytechnic staffs and
institutions which require invention or
innovative hardware as a prerequisite
for the staff promotion. Until today I
could not figure out whatever invention
has Malaysia ever contribute to the
The engineers who run the technical
education came up with an answer "We are
to teach, not to invent. Ours is not a
research station." What a naive answer.
Instead of taking up the challenge, they
paraded their level of competency. We
would expect a PHD holder in technology
to create something new that can capture
the world's market.
We were on the same platform with Korea
about 50 years ago. The Koreans left us
too far behind. We crawled, bought parts
and components, learning how to use them
and continue to be consumers in
technological products. China wants to
sell military hardware to us, the
Americans too and now Putin want to sell
planes to Malaysia.
The whole scenario reflects our
technical education system, the criteria
laid out in the promotional procedures,
the incentives for discovery and
inventions and the curriculum design and
contents. A man with a key is our leader
and the political parties. It depends on
how they see the relationship between
technology and prosperity, technology
Our vocational education cater for the
low achievers and the mediocre for jobs.
Our technical education should prepare
the innovators and inventors. Our
colleges should explore the more
intricate high technology components and
instruments making. I had suggested
metallurgy and a few other disciplines
to be taught.
I think the Malay minds, however
educated they are, need to move out of
their traditional thinking structure
such as valuing people to ideas,
jealousy and self interest. For many
years educators have been political
From my observation, I come to a
conclusion that our technical education
will never improve our status quo.
MOST SCARIEST FLIGHT
As long as there is a signal handshake
between the Remote Controller (RC) and
the the drone you can continue to fly
your drone. I usually made the decision
to fly home to where it started
depending on the remaining battery
percentage, usually at 50%, which I now
know is a false calculation. It has to
be more than 50%. If the one way flight
is 50% and the return flight is 50%, the
final battery leftover on it's landing
will be zero percent.But each flight is
affected by the wind velocity and it's
path does not follow a linier pattern.
This morning my drone flew from my home,
in Lorong Bayu, to the city of Alor
Setar, a distant I never dare to try
before. The signal held each other due
to it's height. By road it could be no
less than 4 miles. I could not say it's
distant by air. Looking at the video, it
could have been about 4 miles or so.
As it was approaching City Plaza I
called it home. The drone seemed to be
slower. Why not there was a warning of a
strong wind velocity all the time on my
RC. I broke the DCA's rule by flying
1100 feet just to get the signal going.
Could the remaining battery power bring home my drone ?
The numbers decreased so quickly that
drove me to the panicky stage. I would
not mind if it dropped half way as long
as it did not dropped on any man, that
it could even cause death. My heart
began to beat at a faster rate. When it
finally hover 1100 above my head, the
fear never ceased as I was closely
watching the descending rate and the the
reduction of battery percentage. It was
just like a race. I was relief as my
Mavic Pro hit the ground.
As I pondered back on the flight, I
realized that my total distant covered
was about 8 miles. I have not flown that
But I must not do it again. It is a very
risky thing to do considering the wind
velocity factor and the
non-linearity of the flight path.
According to the drone staff, the
battery factor is also depending on
whether the recording is on or off.
In my opinion an objective must be set
for every flight. The plans must be
executed accordingly as to meet the
target. We can manage the battery
consumption and the job to be done by
pre-planning for lifting the bird to the
IN THE TWO WORLDS
Living in the two world, the yesteryears
and today I appreciate much the
technological progress in this world.
The level of satisfaction that I get
from the current gadgets and progress is
higher than those who only know the
world of today.
Only at dawn of our age we begin to see
drone on sale, the wonderful cell-phone
and men flying using a small gadget.
Before I die I want to try grabbing
whatever I can reach and toy with them
for my satisfaction. It explains the
reason why I procured a drone to fly and
all other affordable technology in the
market. How many of you are enjoying 3D
movies at home ? I do. Probably 97% of
my friends do not. Only just now I
showed off my smart watch to a friend at
a dinner party. I would have thought I
could use it as a calculator, sending
and receiving messages and many more.
And God has given me with the most
wonderful things in life. I can eat
whatever I want, crossing seas and
continents, writing blogs, play around
with my radio and fly my drone anytime I
wish. When time comes I believe God will
even give me a wife. I believe so much
in God's [providence and sustenance. It
is in God that I trust.
I walked to school a mile away, brought
victuals with me and carried books in a
basket bag. Backpack was unknown. My
mother gave me twenty cent as I went to
secondary school. There were no electric
bulbs, no pipe water and the gasoline
lamp to our delight came much later.
Nobody complained of darkness nor
complained of lack of fresh water. We
captured rain water, enough for
consumption and bathing. There wasn't
any pollution, no factory and the
environment was clean.
The best of the technology that we knew
were cars, big motorcycles and radios.
Only one or two in our village might
have those. A house with a radio usually
put the volume of the radio to the full
volume. We were happy with it for it
told us the time of the day and listen
to songs and music.
Death rate were high. When contagious
disease we heard people died everyday.
We just accepted it as our fate.
I don't remember when exactly the first
TV came in. It was in black and white.
Rich people would place it in such a
place that people in the village could
come and view it as well. I don't also
remember when there were group of people
with strange dress came into our
villages selling precious stones. We
later knew they were from Naples.
People married at the young age of 12 to
16. Any unmarried girl above 20 were
considered as old maid.
At 7 I already read a comic book on Dick
Tracy, a spy with unbelievable gadgets
like a watch with a phone, a scooter and
other futuristic staffs. To us it was a
mere fiction. never expect them to be
real things available and widely used
We noticed the abrupt changes in our
social and physical environments. We
lost all the trees to the developers of
the housing estates. Animals and the
natives are chased out of their homes.
Hill tops gave way to luxurious homes.
The air is polluted. diabetes, heart
diseases, kidney failures and stroke
took place of the once deadly TB and
cholera. There were fetus and young dead
babies found in the garbage bins, kids
of out of wedlock, morality declines and
there are changing value systems.
There were thieves in the past who stole
a penny. There are also thieves today
who stole billions.
What choice do we have having have to
live in the new world other than to make
use whatever we can get hold of. We
drive a car, go on the fast train, feel
the comfort of air travel, converse with
family and friends thousands of miles
away visually, fly a drone and watch 3D
movies at home.
BORN TO COMPLAINT

Once a few teachers were complaining
about the school co-operative and made
so much noise and tumults until they
were given the task to replace the old
administrators. What happened was the
body, not only running the business at a
lost, thousands of ringgit went missing.
Never ever handover any job to
complainants. Many organizations had
suffered a big lost by these kind of
men. It is our task to educated the
masses so that they will not fall into a
trap. By and by they will observes these
people and study the result and soon
will understand the danger that may
More often than not the complainants
have their own agenda to perform and for
their own benefit.
You can begin to recognize this selfish
person when you see them complaint about
every other thing, refusing to accept
facts and reject the feelings of other
people. They want to be only the
winners. And they only want for
On the other side are people who always
submit to every agony they received.
Even if they got knocked on their heads
they will say, "Thanks God that we are
not stabbed." They would not complaint
for any happening but all the time show
their praises on God. These are the
people who were most exploited, cheated
and kicked. Leaders only arise among
them when they are too helpless and
suppressed till they are almost
paralysed. The Orang Asli in Kelantan is
one of such kind of people. They are
chased out of their traditional land by
the state government, the BEAST.

I left my workplace in 2000 to the
school nearby where I served for three
years before I retired. I was in
Vocational Secondary School for 20
years, taking care of the school and
taught computing from 1985 onwards.
Yesterday I receive an invitation from
the school for an annual dinner which is
to be held tonight. This is the first
time in 18 years that I am invited.
There are only a few old teachers left.
The rest were either dead, retired or
transferred to some other schools. My
heart is still in touch with my old
teachers, wherever they are. Without
them the school was nowhere.
The school should forget me for I am in
no position to contribute for the well
being of the institution anymore. I am
just an old dog, not worth a single
penny. It underwent name changed and an
altered environment, with new
landscaping and building structures.
There are new offices and teachers. The
school is almost a stranger to me now
after 18 years.
The world is nothing to me now. It is
meaningless. Even if Donald Trump
invited me for a dinner I would reject
him. When I was in Ternate, Indonesia, a
student of mine working under the new
government told me Tun wanted to see me
on the 20th of the same month. I had to
Only my sentiment remain strong towards
the school and the wonderful people who
had work hard to glorify the name of the
school. It was the acme of my carrier.
It has become a spirit in my body.
It is a little touchy, a feeling that I
feel when a school just came to remember
an old helpless man like me. I don't
have money to help anyone. I don't have
power that people could share for a
small benefit. My hair is white, my
mobility is slow, and my body is full of
diseases. Only death is awaiting ahead.
The only think I can say to the school
is "Thank You."
CONDOLENCES TO 9V1CP'S FAMILY
Leow, who had 9M2CP and 9V1CP, passed
away yesterday. He had a brain cancer
and had had an operation in Singapore a
few months ago. I still heard him on the
air after his operation. Before the
authority gave 40 meter band to the
licence B, I always had a regular
contact with hin.
Leow was was considered a rare person
with an exceptional skill that many do
not have. He travelled the world over to
do the repair work. His departure is a
lost to many of his radio friends. We
send our deepest condolences to his

is that Leow was a DIY man who

the capacitors was made using his own
design. It is this hobby that could have
affected his brain cell structure.
During the testing of every transmission
with the power source only about inches
away from him the high frequency
magnetic wave would have penetrated his
This is to remind those constructors to
be more careful when building up a
linier amplifier. How good is the shield
can one make ? Many would fear TVI or
RFI to connect to the antenna during the
test thus only using a dummy load. A
linier using valve would usually
generate between 500 to 1000 watts.
Imagine a radio signal of only 50 watts
could reach the part of the globe in
order to get some idea of it's power.
When the time comes, we can't escape
even for a second. We will die in one
way or another with a cause. And
many ham operators died because of the
hobby; falling from a radio tower, the
falling of the tower, and electrocuted
while adjusting the antenna. But those
are the cost of the hobby.
accountability is answerability,
and the expectation of account-giving.
As an aspect of
has been central to discussions related
to problems in the
and individual contexts. In leadership
accountability is the acknowledgment and
assumption of responsibility for
decisions, and policies including the
governance, and implementation within
the scope of the role or employment
position and encompassing the obligation
to report, explain and be answerable for
governance, accountability has expanded
beyond the basic definition of "being
called to account for one's actions".
It is frequently described as an
account-giving relationship between
individuals, e.g. "A is accountable to B
when A is obliged to inform B about A's
(past or future) actions and decisions,
to justify them, and to suffer
punishment in the case of eventual

proper accounting practices; in other
words, an absence of accounting means an
absence of accountability.
Accountability is an element of a

I used to send someone to
represent me in a meeting with my boss.
I told him to act like me without any
fear to give his view and to make his
own decision without having to tell my
boss that he would consult me for any
decision. Whether it is good or bad I
would bear the responsibility.
Similarly, I have to answer for whatever
things happen in my department instead
of pointing fingers. That explains why

West resign for any mishap that befell
I would not squabble for
a post merely for power. It carries a
heavy burden of responsibility. The head
cannot run away from accountability.
Imagine a chairman, a
boss or a Minister who passed the buck
to others and said he did not know what
he sign things for. He was busy to read
them. And he claimed that he even didn't
know his own bodyguards went out to
commit a heinous crime of murder. And
what more he even said that he did

The Chinese saying 'Nang
Pu Ti Nang, Kui Pu Ti Kui' seems to fit
such a character.
In USA several persons
were implicated with thefts and their
misdeeds with our Malaysian money, yet
many of our people said that the money
is intact. And without any shame they
were shouting in the parliament of their
innocence. Do we need the court to say
we are guilty before we admit it ?
It is a question of
morality of a civil society. If we have
no shame, and irresponsible then we are

savage behaviours in our parliaments.
True, that to err is only
human. But let us be accountable for our
errors. It is better than to say that we
are infallible and perfect. We brag of
ourselves and blaming others for
YOUR TIME COMES
A young man around 50 was killed in
accident this evening. I remember
meeting him in a Supermarket about a
week ago. many things came to my mind
when I saw him on his death bed early
tonight. I too was knocked by a man many
years ago, fainted with broken bones,
and causing me perpetual internal
injury. The man, I heard, was living not
far away from my home. I still do know
him but I am certain he knows where I
live. Until today he has no courtesy to
come and see me to say sorry. May he was
dead before me. I would not dismiss the
And I think about the controversial
politicians who had been hospitalized
owing to stroke and heart disease. But
they are still vocal with filthy mouths
till today. They never think of death
and their time may come very soon.
If they are sinners they would ask God
to make them alive again and will be
promising that they won't do any sin
again on the earth surface.
How many of us do think of of death ?
How many of us ever think that we are
growing older day by day ? How many of
us really feel God is always around us ?
I believe that God gives and God takes.
God has given me too much of abundance.
I spent a lot of money but so far I
never felt really broke and could not
survive without begging. By abundance I
mean the state of my health, the ability
to travel the globe. able to eat good
food and able to help people.
Despite my active life and loads of
pleasure that I have, I always remember
that my time will come soon for I am now
72. At time I felt I would not wake up
the next morning or having a sudden
chest pain. I told friends that I prefer
a sudden death rather than having a
prolong pain and sickness. Only God
knows the answer.
However I felt sad reading news on the
media about the death of people younger
than me. There were people who regarded
me as their enemies. There were people
whom I knew not. There were kids who
dies in wars and bus accidents. There
were passenger planes shot down, and
dived into the ocean bed.
We pray for bad people to die but they
The reason is plain. Their turn have not
come yet. Even then I expect big time
sinners to repent and promise to to good
things and to serve the community
without any pecuniary gain.
SOMETHING FISHY WHEN COURT GAVE BACK
I smell shit when the high court gave
back Shafiee's passport. I have always
regard him as dishonest, cheaters,
corruptors, and paying judges by the
millions. During the Scorpion case when
Najib's name was mentioned by the
French, he went to Australia. During
that time my extra sense smelt indirect
deal with some people from France.
The whole story of donation things, the
planning on how to make believe using
personalities in Saudi Arabia, the
so-called sending back the money and the
diamond rings to the source were all
must have come from him. He lied of the
9 million paid to him and twisting words
after discovered are his trademarks.
Shafiee is a snake, a big snake.
It has to be thoroughly investigate why
the high court release his passport on
the pretext to allow him to apply a
working permit in Sabah. It was his
style of lying and the judge believe him
Democracy is not allowing criminal
activities to go around freely, to
protect criminals, to contact other
criminals or to go about maneuvering
unlawful activities. It is just like
giving a gun to any layman, saying he is
not a criminal until he shoots someone.
We don't give freedom to murderer,
robbers or drug pushers on bail. It is
similar to Najib and Rosmah. They both
shouldn't be allowed bail. And it is
similar to Shafiee.
If it is a Rule law then we follow the
rule of law. It was shown to the court
by the Ram Karpal that law must be equal
to all citizens. Why didn't the judge
follow the rule of law ?
That's why we need to have a special
unit to monitor and to act on all fishy
things that are going on in order to
stop all form of corruptions and
deceptions. Shafiee is a case that must
always be observed and scrutinized.
I think Shafiee is working hard to see
the Saudis to twist and turn things up
after the statement made by the visiting
Arab Minister recently. That will kill
the donation story and it spells the end
of Najib. Since Shafiee had started the
story it was him who must put the lies
back onto the track. He has his ways to
fix many things including the judges. I
would not give him an inch of a leeway.
Funny, the court did.
TAKE UMNO INTO BERSATU
UMNO is full of hooligans and gangsters.
There are tons of crooks and people who
care for their own interest. I will
never forgive Jamal Jamban, Ali Tinju,
Zahid Hamidi, Ku Nan, Mahathir Khalid
and all other robers and hypocrites who
are very arrogant and selfish. Their
behaviours are reckless and despicable.
We are now seeing what is happening to
PKR election debut. They also had the
past UMNO members inside them.
We must remember that the people had
call UMNO members to abandon Najib or
sacked him for his manners and actions
before the GE14. Najib called the whole world to be loyal to
him. They were not only adamant but they
they caused plenty of ruckus everywhere,
even throwing shoes and chairs during Tun Mahathir's events. I would not
forget how Mahathir Khalid and Razali
Ibrahim played their roles to kick
Mukhriz out of Chief Minister's office.
It is true that Ram Karpal is not a
Malay and a DAP man but what he said was
indeed true. Tun Dr Asmah was even
harassed. And we will not forgive that
Tun pictures were banned throughout the
Those UMNO who are not happy with their
leaders now can just quit politics and
be an ordinary man like many of us.
The drawing line is the GE14 election.
Rafedah Aziz did campaign for Harapan.
To me I would accept her into BERSATU.
Najib's lackeys can all go to hell and
We now see who Zahid Hamidi and his men
really are. He had been filthy before
the election and he is getting worse
even now. He went to see Tun, not the
other way round, to ask for advice from
a man he insulted as Kutty from India.
Obviously Tun would ask him to burn UMNO.
If I were TUN I would even advise him to
jump into the sea of fire with all of
The assessment of UMNO members is not on
how they are going to behave now but how
they had behave before the GE14. Many from
the grassroots had campaigned covertly
against UMNO and Najib. These people
never asked to join BERSATU or any party
till now. Only the crooks do.
Look at Tajuddin Pasir Salak and his
rogue personality. The whole bulk of his
supporters have to be like him, as rude
as he is.
I have had enough with the UMNO people,
especially the Wanita branch, who loved
Rosmah so much and shouted so much in
Najib and UMNO's favour.
BERSATU can live without the additional
GOOD AM I IN CW ?
When you are in amateur radio, without
CW it is hard to qualify yourself as a
full pledge ham as Ham Radio comes
together with Morse codes. That was the
way Ham Radio was born. To be in amateur
radio like the CB, the Pirates or any
other radio hobby do not require the
codes section. You can do the world,
chanting all the magic mantras, but
without the ability in sending and
deciphering the codes with your mind and
hand you are lacking of something. You
can still be a great person without it
but you are lacking the traditional
bundle that was born with it.
Some claim that they know better than
anybody else but simply do not want to
show of. Some claim that it is not
relevant to amateur radio. No matter
what the taste of the pudding is in the
eating. Or else many would claim that
they are better than the PHD guys,
simply they just do not want to go for
They can be very great and lustrous but
they are lack of one skill that was once
very noble to be with a ham operator.
You kill CW, you kill ham radio.
I am not a champion in Morse code.
Neither I have an excellent skill. My
standard is below a mediocre. If there
is a scale of 1 to 100, I am at 26. I
have two keys with me, the manual keyer
and the electronic key. I make less
mistakes with the manual key sending at
about 12 words per minutes. A speed up
to 25 wpm needs the electronic key,
which I need to slept left and right
with my fingers.
When I was a beginner I started with
sending normal information of my setup,
the signal strength, the rig, antenna
and the power used, the weather
condition and my location. With the
stations that I already worked that chat
was much longer, telling about the grand
father's story. It was fun.
Contest was not my cup of coffee. Once
in a while I joined in to help the other
sides to gain some points. In the old
days I did not have to submit my list.
There was no internet yet until
recently. I used only my manual key when
I joined the contest. The key has been
with me for more than 50 years and I am
still using it from time to time.
At 12 wpm I used my head to copy. But if
my counterpart were to send a very
erratic Morse with changing tempo and at
a very slow speed I have to write them
down. A near perfect sending from 12 to
25 wpm would be good for mental copy.
In Malaysia the good CWers were Chin,
Chow, Rajamani, Bahar, Zainal, Mazwan,
Zol, Manan and of course Eshee and Idris.
The newer ones are Iqbal, Piju, Azlan,
Hairie, Amirul and a few others. For
some reasons or the other you do not
hear them anymore.
On my part I make a habit of listening
to the codes which can be downloaded
from the internet. Regular listening
would train our brain to recognize the
sound of a word, not a character
anymore. Like thinking, listening would
make our mind alert. A non-active brain
is not good for our mental health.
If we do not use our brain wisely or
that we do not it at all, the soul of
sentiment will take control. Decisions
will be made merely base on our
emotions. We think that we are rational
enough but it is not.
Physical exercise helps not only to our
body but also our mind. You can feel it
when you are deciphering the Morse
codes. Healthy body and mental alertness
support and corroborate with each other.
Deciphering codes is a form of mental
It does not take a good CWer to
encourage others to pick up Morse codes.
I am just below the mediocre.
Do we need stringent rule to force the
people to understand the importance of
respect, honesty and harmony ? Once in
the United States newspapers were sold
just by putting coins into a box where
the buyer just picked the it according
to the amount he put in, until the
Asians arrived to take more than the
paid figure. The savageness in our
society seems to be rife.
Democracy is not an absolute freedom for
someone to do anything he wants like
robbing, bullying, taking away other
people's peace of mind, and do not
maintain peace, respect and harmony. But
the rudeness, rogue behaviours and the
act of destroying harmony are rampant
under the name of freedom and democracy.
Media is carrying insults almost on
every account, calling it freedom.
I believe that to expose the truth is a
duty however detrimental it is. And it
is our duty to fight injustice and
against crimes. And it is our task not
to provoke the other race that could
cause conflict and bloodshed.
Democracy is not the question of right
because everyone thinks that he is
right. A thief says it is his right to
steal from a member of society because
he is made poor by them. He was defied a
job. He had to go through hassles to put
a table to sell something on the road
side. He was ignored when he went
begging for a pittance.
One can do anything at all as long as it
does not affect any other people or
taking away other people's freedom. When
you play a music in your house you cause
no harm to others. But if you use a
loudspeaker and your music has become a
strong noise disturbing your neighbours
then you are robbing them of their right
to sleep or rest in peace.
The mutual respect does not need law
enforcement to keep an eye on us. It is
a civility of mankind to enforce peace
COPY RIGHT SONGS
It was never in my dream that one day I
would be making a video clip for my own
entertainment. I had never known that
there would be such thing as internet.
It was an amazing invention that
millions do not know how to appreciate.
Everyone almost take it for granted.
People of the yesteryears like me did
not sense the coming of the Youtube.
Only at 72, I started to appreciate this
section of the website where we could
watch movies and events at home on a
mobile phone. People are uploading
stuffs and watched by the whole world.
Finally I ended up in the making of
simple movies and uploaded too.
To me clips with songs and music could
be very entertaining. Embedding the
music is simple by following the
available software. Uploading time has
change from 4 or 8 hours per video to 10
minutes with the introduction of fiber
optic. I picked up songs and music from
the websites. BUT after uploading I get
the warning that the songs were copy
right. Some copy right stuffs were
allowed with conditions. After all I do
not have any pecuniary motive.
The people who run the Youtube
understood the predicament and pain of
those who want to have the music
embedded, and they provide the free
Unfortunately some are not to my taste
though many are good ones. I like the
oldies with melodies like Besame mucho,
the Sound of Silence, Widuri, Aryati and
a few Hindi songs. Almost all of those
are copyright stuffs.
I never knew a Ham Radio friend of mine,
Zainal Farid, could sing well until he
told me that he wanted to put his song
in my youtube clip. It was a wonderful
news. Zainal is not a young man. He is a
year younger than me. Zainal's singing
Aryati intrigued me. It was beautiful. I
requested him to sing several more songs
for my purpose. I want to beat the
The oldies like the Rhythm Of The
Falling Rain, The Green Grass of Home.
Blue Ribbon, and plenty of Hindi songs
are really soothing and beautiful. I
asked Zainal to sing The Sound of
Silence. He said the pitch of his voice
is not parallel to the pitch of the
instrument. But I know he can do it in
time to come. My recent clips contain
his nice voice. And I don't have to pay

the island three days ago, I
had a bitter experience
throughout the my siesta. At
Kuala Kedah jetty someone
coaxed me to do all the
bookings at the counter. I
obliged thinking it would be
was a car booking. The lady
at the counter told me it
was RM120 for two days, the
hotel was RM400 for two
rooms per night and the
mangrove tour was RM250 for
two hours. I was to take
Mansor's kid from India but
he wanted to follow too. He
had a family of four. I also
paid for the ferry which was
RM103 one way.
On arriving the island I
had to call a taxi company.
I was taken to the car
place. The rental was RM130,
the man in-charge said. He
had a Muslim head cover (Kopiah
Lebai). I needed to pay
RM220, RM60 of which will be
returned on my sending back
the car. He just kept quite
when I told him I had paid
RM40 at Kuala Kedah's jetty
as a deposit. The petrol
charge was RM30
I did not want to argue
but took the car after I
obliged to pay the Lebai
chap. His manner was bad
when attending to me. He was
talking to one lady all the
time while writing a kind of
a receipt without even
looking at me. He would
never know whether I had had
a horn on my head.
I took my guest to the
mangrove tour area which was
about 30 minutes away. It
was a nice tour. We were all
happy except for the lunch
we had at the floating
restaurant, I was charged
RM71+ for a small plate of
fried rice and a crab. My
guest's price was RM266+ for
a fish. It was a cut throat
price. On the mainland it
would cost us RM50, at most
The lodging was the
Malibest Hotel. There were
no phone, no bath tub and no
tooth paste. According to
some it was the one of the
best hotels. To me it was
just two stars. I could not
say who the owner was.
But the two early
experience with the car
rental made me despise the
Malays in Langkawi. I did
not return the car with an
empty tank. I filled RM30
fuel giving it much more
than what they gave me.
According to the Lebai, we
could not claim back for
gasoline even though it was
There was no breakfast at
the hotel and the food price
was very expensive. 5 pieces
of Roti Nan cost us RM100 on
the Cenang Beach area.
I would not want to
narrate more of the tour.
Those who had visited the
Cable car area could tell
you more about their whole
experience there. In short
they were irresponsible
because they didn't care to
take care of the path though
the parking fee was
Langkawi was to be nice
but it was a disgrace, full
of robbers everywhere. They
are like a scavengers and
ever ready to cut your
throat and suck your blood.
The Malays didn't seem to
show their Muslim values,
and they as as bad as all
other crooks. In front of
the jetty the taxis
controlled the space that
made loading and unloading
for the visitors so very
difficult. There is no
better word but to describe
they are worst than the

whether the Malays there are

HAM RADIO-THE FADING HAMS
I no longer heard
stations I used to work
before from Indonesia, both
on SSB and CW. The CW
Indonesian net is now
totally disappeared and the
spectrum is taken over by
the pirate stations. I do
not know where these people
are. When I met the CWers in
Jakarta Fest JARF and asked
then about the CW activity
everyone mentioned nothing.
In Malaysia we had had
only about 250 hams before
the coming of licence B.
Each day there would be
about at least 10 hams and
there were several groups of
them covering almost the
whole spectrum. Almost all
were either of the high
social status and
spoke in English covering a
wide range of topics from
simple personal experience
to piloting an airplane and
court cases. A few were the
walking dictionary on
The quality control was
language, education and
Morse codes. No hams talked
to the pirates as their
licences would be revoked
without any warning. The
authority was doing their
job well. The essay type
exam did not give any chance
of luck like the modern
objective questions. Hence
the authenticity of the ham
radio was well guarded from
rogue persons becoming a
ham. This maintained the
status of amateur radio as
the King of all hobies.
Today there are more than
20000 licence holders. They
are from all walks of life
with different experience,
educational background and
professions. Instead of
buzzing the radio band, the
numbers seemed to cut down
by manifolds as compared
when there were only about
What could be the reason
The encroaching of the
internet and the creation of
multi type of chat programs
where hams and the populace
flocked to make known to the
world that they exist, alive
and kicking. Facebook became

GE14 LOST BECAUSE OF
Najib gathered the UMNO
members to tell them the
lost of GE14 was not due to
him but because of the
opposition slander. Slander
is to denote lies and
untruth that were being
spread. Were all the 1000
UMNO members believe in
Najib's words ?
Before GE14 the people were
told that the opposition and
the social media ran FITNAH
rampantly. Sarawak Report
was constantly attack and
the editor was reported to
the Interpol. The clip below
was one of the denials by
Rosmah. Why didn't believe
her ? Simple. She did sue

Najib has always denied that
there was nothing wrong with
1Mdb. Then he sacked Ghani
Patail, replaced him with
Apandi who cleared Najib,
declared that there was
nothing wrong with 1Mdb and
made the audit report as
Official Secret Act. And
later he sacked his Deputy.
These were not a slander.
First he denied having 2.6
billion in his account. He
threatened to sue the WSJ
for lying. He did not pursue
it and many months later he
came out with a donation
story. This too was not a

I hated most about Najib.
And then rakyat were asked
to leave the country if they
didn't like the government
policy. Najib and Zahid and
the gangsters started to
bully the masses. Arrogance
and braggart had been the
principal themes of the day.

he say that he is a Bugis
Warrior who will fight to
the end ?
The FBI-DOJ's forensic and
detailed investigations had
shown the trail of money.
The seller of the pink
diamond told everything
about the sale. The one man
whom Najib once denied he
knew, Jho Lo, is now
indicted. And Najib and
Rosmah's names are now
surfaced in the charged
Rosmah claimed the story about the RM24
nillion dollar ring was false. She was
lying through her teeth after all
arrangements were made with the
suppliers to say what she wanted. The
events were created saying the ring was
brought in by her daughter's mother in
law. Her body language showed it all.
And I believe it was all planned by
Shafiee. Others too sensed her lying.
The custom did not say the ring was
brought in by the Uzbek lady. But it was
for Rosmah. Everyone could trace her
lies in one explanation. There were
contradictions. It was not a slander.
And people are not stupid either.
NAJIB AND ZAHID SHOULD
Najib and Zahid had sold
their souls for money. It
was them who drove the
Malays apart to detest them
for their greed and
casting the Islamic values
away. The rogue behaviours
of Mahathir Khalid in
ousting Mukhriz, the
arrogance of Najib to call
the people to shift from
loyalty to the King and the
country to HIMSELF and to
kick away his Deputy and
Shafie Afdal for questioning
him were the turning points
where the Malays began to
reject their own kinds. The
declaration of Najib and
Zahid that they were not
originated from here had
made them the PENDATANG and
drew contempt from all the
others. Calling Tun Mahathir
the son of Kutty made the
Indians and the Mamak
distant themselves farther
from BN and UMNO.
There are among the
Malaysians who are
determined to get back all
the stolen money. They will
organize themselves to form
a covered team to kidnapped
Najib and his family, to
squeeze their eggs, to put
them in cages of rats and to
make them reveal where the
stashed money are.
Yes UMNO is thinking that
they might make a comeback.
They thought they have the
brain behind them,
university degrees and PHDs.
But forgetting that people
are not only thinking
outside the box but they
have also reached the
thought of beyond
Basically PH is thinking
about the welfare and
happiness of the rakyat
while UMNO has nothing else
but merely thinking of it's
If UMNO feels that the
Malays are having no future
and has been losing their
rights there is nobody else
to be blamed but themselves.
Now, imagine of their scary
posture towards only one old
man who will depart soon
enough. There are attempts
to woo Anwar Ibrahim whom
they threw in jail without
pity or morose. Where was Nazri and all other UMNO
members while Anwar was
languishing in prison ? Ram Karpal
had asked the very pertinent
question "Where were they
then before May 9 ? "
Najib is getting weaker as
the Arabs are turning their
face away and the DOJ's
pressing charges on those
criminals of 1Mdb which Najib's
administration declared as
clean and healthy. Even if
he finally admits that he
stole the money for the
Malays, a big majority of
them will ignore him.
The rakyat do not see Najib
or Zahid stole the money
with their own naked eyes
but they see the pomposity
of the UMNO leaders. They
boasted, bragged of their
greatness and popularity and
their successes. And how
they belittled and insulted
older people through the
media. They put away the
Islamic values by their
behaviours and consistent
lies. They said that Najib
was chosen by God to lead
the Malays. They are too far
away off from the teachings
of Islam. God forbids
cheating, lying and defaming
the innocent people in
People know what Najib did
to the country just before
he left the post. He razed
the national coffer to
paralyze the new government.
It was shocking to see the
damage was too great. After
the maiden PH budget UMNO
says the budget is for the
government. Obviously the
new government has to raise
to it's feet. No weak person
has enough strength to lift
another. Even before the
budget the rakyat believed
we will be back on our feet
in two or three years time.
But Najib, Zahid and many
other UMNO lackeys are
showing that they are specie
without morals and shame.
