Twisted logic or not but to me it is utter nonsense what Zainuddin Maidin spews out.


Behold the greatest asset in this whole wide world is INFORMATION. I should know...I studied it. I came upon Malaysians Unplugged Uncensored article on our Mr. Minister of Information aptly titled " Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin's Twisted Logic".

I find it really amusing...really. Now he expects that some lawyers to listen to him? After what he does as to name calling whoever that leaves a foul after taste after his dinner he should know better that what a buffoon he has made himself be with the title of Minister. Goodness me, I wonder does he know the meaning of information?

Well let me briefly explain it here....

Information is an amount of collected data that has been correlated to bring specific meaning and use to the audience that asks and require of it. Thus this makes information not entirely useful all the time to everyone.

Now this is the term for useful information...

Useful information is information that is complied, developed, packaged and delivered to the right people at the right time for it's precise purpose or function. If it does not meet this criteria than it is still information but more precisely termed as Useless Information.

Now, for Mr Minister of Information to tell the Malaysian BAR that they have acted unprofessionally by asking the set up of a Royal Commission is really useless information. Why? Because he stated that the Malaysian BAR should act professionally to be respected but who would want to listen to his say when he himself resorted to name calling a couple of months back.

In the light of his previous action and statement, his say is totally un-authoritative because he himself sang off key and portrayed a minister that is immature and reckless.

Paedophile, billion dollar records lost and UMNO youth suing opposition?


Yawn~ It's a lazy Saturday. Woke up turned on the PC and start checking the jolly weekend news. WHooaa...what is this? Paedophile? Records on billion dollar deal destroyed? Suing opposition? Ackkk...if I did not remember that I was fasting I would have down a jug of water to quench this choking feeling.

I am not too much in the mood to post on each of this individually. A bit long winded for a Saturday if you ask me, so I am just dumping everything here. Firstly paedophiles are connected to the murder of Nurin. That is not much of a shocker but what it really seems to be is a job of more than one person. Police have to believe that some form of child pornography syndicate is involved.

Finding various children's clothes in the trunk of one of the suspects cars seems to confirm the suspicion. But more has to be investigated, especially what is contained in the hand phones of those they have detained. The detainees are graduates mind you~! Degree and diploma holders who I suspect are pretty much jobless apart from the "business" they are running. Oh dear me....our society is getting from bad to worse. Now the government can't blame us if more and more do not feel like staying in this country anymore. If I can, I would love to leave this place where foodstuff in asses is not a novel idea.

Lim Guan Eng is asking questions as to why records of a multi billion dollar Naval deal has been reportedly destroyed. Rm6.75 billion ringgit of a deal is not a tiny sum and every single sen should very well be accounted for especially since it is the rakyat's money we are talking about here. A pile of documents do not simply just disappear. As an information management graduate I could pretty much agree that documentation for any deal will serve up to the accountability of any project or deal. My suspicions is the same as Guan Eng's. It's not that why it is destroyed but more to who destroyed it. From there the reason should surface....there is a stench of corruption everywhere these days.

UMNO youth to sue opposition. Now this is THE joke of my weekend thus far. How could anyone sue the opposition? I do think it somehow runs against the statute of democracy if there is still any left in this country. So lets say I am not a member of UMNO or any political party am I liable to be sued as well? Maybe...so why not sue me directly Hishamuddin? I have my own political beliefs which does not fall in either your camp or the opposition's. Accusations of UMNO youth for the Batu buruk incident is not done only by the opposition. The rakyat too believes that there is a higher hand involved. Since the higher hand is always the ruling party in this darn country so tell me why not we point our fingers to you and your cohorts?

Remember it was you Hishamuddin, who was waving a weapon and threatening others. It is also your cohorts that went so low to name calling of monkeys, karaoke singers and what ever other nonsense. If UMNO youth and UMNO it self are not conscious of their public image do take some time and watch the various videos on You Tube. Tell me if you do not think that anyone of you have acted as uncivilized and uneducated politicians. So yeah...sue me and sue anyone else you like. Because seriously the public has lesser confidence of you, your party, the police and even the judiciary system for that matter.

Judges...you have shit on your shoulder.


Another senior court official held for alleged graft

By LOURDES CHARLES

KUALA LUMPUR: A second senior official of the Perak syariah court has been arrested for alleged graft in just three weeks.

The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) detained the 38-year-old man at 11.45am yesterday after he was summoned to the Perak state ACA office.

ACA director-general Datuk Ahmad Said Hamdan
It is learnt that the official had allegedly demanded and accepted bribes totalling about RM4,000 to settle a khalwat (close proximity) case.

ACA director-general Datuk Ahmad Said Hamdan confirmed the arrest but declined to elaborate as investigations are still under way.

On Sept 6, another senior Perak syariah court official was arrested on suspicion of accepting bribes to expedite the settlement of a case involving a VIP.

He was arrested at his office by ACA officers following complaints from the public.

Sources said the complainant in the second case contacted the ACA after the official said he could drop the case for a fee. He allegedly asked the victim to deposit the money in his bank account, which the victim did after lodging a report with the ACA.

The ACA is expected to obtain a remand order today before the official is charged under Section 11(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act.

In the earlier case, it is believed that the official is being investigated under Section 11(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act for allegedly accepting RM4,200 on two occasions.

It is also learnt that it was not the first case involving the official, who is in his 50s. On Sept 10, the official was released after posting RM10,000 bail at the ACA office in Ipoh.

UiTM are building it anyway.


Pembinaan Fakulti Perubatan UiTM diteruskan

Oleh ABDUL YAZID ALIAS

SHAH ALAM 26 Sept. – Kerajaan akan meneruskan pembinaan Fakulti Perubatan dan Pergigian Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), di Sungai Buloh yang dihentikan sementara sejak awal bulan ini.

Naib Canselor UiTM, Datuk Seri Ibrahim Abu Shah berkata, keputusan untuk meneruskan pembinaan projek itu dibuat dalam mesyuarat Kabinet pada 12 September lalu.

Berikutan keputusan tersebut, katanya, projek yang menelan belanja RM218 juta itu akan diteruskan mengikut jadual asal.

‘‘Keputusan ini dicapai melalui tiga kementerian iaitu Kementerian Kesihatan, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi serta Kementerian Kebudayaan, Kesenian dan Warisan yang sepakat untuk bekerjasama termasuk menarik semula perintah penangguhan projek oleh Suruhanjaya Warisan Negara.


Thank you to Enigma who posted this in the comments of one of my postings. It is not so much that I am against the building of the facility but I am highly skeptical of the way the matter have been progressing. If it was a uninhabited piece of property it is not much of a problem but what was my grouse is that there are people staying there. After the demolition started some had to stay in makeshift tents. Now how can the government or part of it's affiliated institution allow such thing to happen?

I have not been to the site myself but I have driven by and saw the tent for my own eyes. It is sad really. So, to friends of mine... I don't really care if my case is still pending the decision of the minister. What this University has proceed to do and the manner it has done it, thus far is really sad and cruel. I guess someone is mighty happy now.

ps: Anyone knows the luck of the family that was staying in that tent? Are they still there or they have been given proper housing and facilities?









Love boats, dingy

To sail the 7 seas. That would be my ultimate dream. But boats is not something that comes by in everyones mind in a lifetime. Somehow I figure when I have that little extra I would invest in a boat. Why do I say invest? Because having a bout is not life owning a car. No sir, expect some form of change in lifestyle when you do own one. First it s already the high cost of getting one. But let us not let that be a turn off.

My boat (when I do get to buy one) will be a large 15 footer. It need not be decked to be like a floating apartment. Having a simple one will do. I know surely there would be more fishing trips and a little bit of island touring. The rest of the time it will be at the Marina being taken care of.

But there is always a risk you see. With the ever worrying weather conditions especially the tsunami warnings. One can never be too careful. Any water craft for that matter should be protected. Even lets say you own a dinghy. You should get a dinghy insurance. Yes, in fact they can insure kayaks too these days. Why you ask? Simply because having a hobby is just not that simple anymore. So you would want to protect the right to have that pastime of yours. Surely my future 15 footer will have insurance and the same goes to the dinghy that it brings along.








Muslims: Stop spreading lies and spamming mail.


I get annoyed very so often when I receive spam and those really long ass forwarded emails thread. If it is funny I do not mind that much but when it comes to the point of spreading lies and fitnah plus the decency to expose ones lack of knowledge it really makes me wish that these bunch of people will be forever be IT illiterate.

Now I know whoever it is is trying to be helpful but lacking the knowledge will only bring FITNAH. On top of that here it is probable that to state something that is Halal to Haram. Now this is purely ignorance.

CHICKEN HAM is not HAM HAM (PORK HAM)~! It is basically chicken fillets made into slices. Same goes to beef ham. Also, once a premise serves one item in the menu with pork it will make all the other stuff in the menu NOT HALAL as well.

Now we know there is ignorance and on top of that denying ones right to earn Halal income is a sin already. So please fellow muslims...get your knowledge and facts right first. DO NOT spread anything if you have no knowledge of it just like this idiot who did. Saying sorry early on in the email does not release this person from spreading the wrong information. Only an uneducated can influence non educated.









Lawyers march unbecoming you say? What more nonsense from Nazri?


Apparently some ministers can keep quiet. But some have to simply give out statements even if their cat died. This is rather apparent to the infamous Nazri Aziz. Obviously he took the situation of the Malaysian Bar march in Putrajaya yesterday not really well. Hmmm...actually what on earth does he take in well anyway?

Anyway, to lash back or create an excuse he says it's the opposition idea of creating distrust to the judiciary system. But what bugs me is his statement of "No crisis, no problems. I don't see any scandal."

Obviously he can't see any scandal, or else how can it be called a scandal if it is in plain sight? Now, for whatever reason or point he wants to say it, the Malaysian Bar has applied the pressure. So there will be more paperwork for him which I hope would keep him out of public sight for a tiny bit of time. Honestly I have gotten fed up with whatever statement that Nazri Aziz have to give. It's like putting up with an empty tin can to your ear. Sounds hollow and lacks weight.

Nazri, do not tell us there is no scandal or corruption or whatever. Simply telling won't work any more. Just do your job to prove it alright? Prove us wrong with an investigation and evidence.


Report can be found in the NST.








Praying for a short walk to JUSTICE.



It is obvious there is an abuse of power in every single public and independent system. The Malaysian Police have been known to harbour corruption for ages. Well it is partially our own fault also for the many ringgit spent on buying them officers coffee. But now an even more serious matter is at hand. The judicial system have been abused and compromised. But exactly who and how is has still yet to be determined. All we have is a video with some Lingam mentioning names.

Now the Malaysian BAR has staged this peaceful march to hand in a Memorandum. What should happen now is that the PM takes affirmative action. If he shuts up for too long he should know what the public will think of him. And once the public think that way it is very hard to change it.

So far no statement from the PM himself can be found that he has RECEIVED and READ the memorandum. So I am hoping so much as for him not to just shut up like he always does. The people want to know, the people has the right to know and trust me sooner or later the truth will be revealed...if not by an investigative commission than it will be by GOD himself.

Busses filled with protesters halted just outside putrajaya.

Busses ferrying lawyers as well as the public to protest and demand for a royal commission was stopped by the police just as it was about to enter Putrajaya. However the march will continue on foot.

Such determination such selflessness. But why are the busses not allowed to drive into Putrajaya? I mean it is buses filled with lawyers what could go wrong? Police acting under orders of so called higher authority. Pffft~

More on Malaysia Kini.








BAR council is still pushing but I dont think that is enough.


The Malaysian BAR is concentrating it's efforts to get a royal commission set up on the matter of the Lingam Video. A probe has already started to find if the video clip is authentic or not. Sure sure, probe into this and that and the BAR is rather smart too that just by probing the video they know that it would just be swept under some dusty carpet of past follies.

So, increase the pressure. But is the question is, is the pressure enough? I say a public inquiry should also be done and various NGOs should be very concerned as well. Judiciary system relates very closely to human rights. If this matter is not pursued relentlessly we all know that many bad people can go scot free and many innocent people will be charged with offences that they did not commit.

I still believe not only a royal commission be set up but an independent public and professionals inquiry also needs to be initiated. Because as we very well know...even the royals wait for the "recommendation" of the PM (Prime Monstrosity). Blllerrgh~









Shop minus pushing the shopping cart.

Rising overhead cost year after year forces many small retail business to close down. Not that the sales are bad but the cost makes it pretty much impossible to retain a healthy profit margin without chasing customers away. The birth of the Internet has very much been a culture shock to the retail business. However as time passes and technology improves starting a retail business online seems to be the most cost effective option.

So, the are no premises to rent. Less workers to pay wages and even better security for payments. But what is essential for all online businesses is to have a shopping cart software. Now this area is where that nothing should be compromised. The best have to be had to ensure uninterrupted service. Just think a supermarket without a shopping push cart. That would be very much a steep downfall. So be sure to get the best and the most trusted shopping cart application providers. Every visit to your online store is a potential revenue.

Shopping carts don't need wheels these days.

Shopping~ used to mean dressing up, hop on a form of transportation and arriving at a mall downtown. That is pretty much the standard issue of procedures. But after the arrival of the internet shopping has taken a different meaning. Even shopping carts have gotten a bit different. But the purpose still is the same. Gather all the stuff you want to buy in one place.

The most recent ones do not have wheels. Gasp~! They have hovering technology?! Well no, I wish they have but thats a bit far fetched. The ones that does not have wheels is for online shopping stores. Online shopping cart works in pretty much the same manner. You can go anywhere in the online shopping portal and your selected products or services follows you where ever you go. Quick glances into the shopping cart will tell you what is the total and you can remove, add or change its contents with a click. It does hover~ just in cyber space. Heheheh~!

Bedding to live my dreams

Bedding is normally plain~ boring and really does not spark any interest besides just crashing on it. But what if beddings come in designs that you choose? What if you can bring your dreams to bed with you? Now that should be the bedding that could be a conversation piece.

But lets say you are simply that impossible, just give them your design or a picture of what you want exactly on your bedding than their customization services should be able to solve that. Well actually they can pretty much print anything on your bed covers and pillow or cushion covers. I think I'll have mine in the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Heheheh~ I love cars.

Earning from a passion.

Not many people earns from what they love to do most. Those who does are considered very lucky. But there is every reason for those who love to write or blog to do that now. Now anyone can get paid to blog about thing things they love or relevant to the things they fancy.

Smorty features slightly higher payouts that some of the rest of paid posting services out there plus there are no ugly badges to stick at the bottom of your post to say you are paid. It's not about the money at all but a tiny compensation to support what you love to do is no harm done now is it?

Mum cages girl outside overnight.


One family looses a daughter in a tragic manner while another family likes to lock up their daughter. Paranoid? Not really....the 7 year old girl is locked up in a steel cage outside her family's lavish home in Seremban 2.

What has the world come to? Now if there is someone who is to be charged for negligence towards children this lady in Seremban should be the one. How could you cage a small child overnight?

Dear IGP...

Your recent statement is appalling to me. What society would perceive of you if the charges of negligence are brought to Nurins already grieving parents? Simply bad judgment. I do understand that you are trying to do your job. But let me remind you that there are other things that you have efficiently neglected as well.

Why after is it only after a third victim is found dead in a bag that you want to act aggressively to find this animal at large? Why can't you act immediately upon knowing there is a similarity between 2 earlier victims? Now that would have been a good judgment. Now you have called on the probability on pressing charges to Nurin's parents. Can we the people press charges against you for negligence as well? Since it took you such a long time to act on finding this serial molester turned murderer than it can be said as negligence also right?

The gravity of your negligence far out weigh the negligence of the deceased parents (if there is any). Why you ask? Because it is you, who is given the task and have taken an oath to protect and serve the people. Bersih, Cekap, Amanah.....you have violated all 3 here.

You are no longer clean since you made such a statement which has tainted your public image. Cekap? After the third case which now involves murder only you want to act? Efficient indeed~ Amanah? Definitely far from it because you have betrayed the people that you swore to protect by taking your own sweet time in handling the matter that has now increased the victim count to three and allowing such animal loose in our streets.

I wait with bated breath to see if the count climbs to 4 sexually molested victims. All the better if the death count notches one up.... if that either one or both happens I implore and plead to the rest of the public to press charges against you for negligence. So Tan Sri Musa Hassan, we are the people....we have every single bloody right.










Portals to manage team and resources

Sorting details for a project could be the downfall even before the project starts. That is when things can go out of hand an you are left unaware of the resources that is available to you. But what can be expected when there is so much details to remember and keep them organized.

The solution would be a portal software that could properly organize details into their relevant fields from almost anywhere in the world. Because we know now that any projects can be so mobile that it is very easy to loose track of things. With seamless integration, data and reports can be accessed from anywhere with just with one point access. Suffice to say it would almost surely ensure that every project will start and end successfully.

Lets play a guessing game on Pak Lah.


Report from the Star.

It strikes me as amusing that Pak Lah has not watched the Lingam Video. I mean this is in fact a probable evidence that a major system of the country is not at all impartial and fair. So what will it take for Pak Lah to actually watch something for his own eyes for once?

It would be kind of all of you, my readers to leave their good estimate on what kind of videos that you think that Pak Lah would pay attention to and watch it immediately.









Main titles on Malaysia Kini reports.


I just thought of compiling the major titles for the reports on Malaysia kini.

  1. Boycott the Chief Justice, lawyers urged
  2. PM: No need for royal commission
  3. Najib: Gov't to verify authenticity of clip
  4. A two-para 'No comment' from Ahmad Fairuz
  5. Poison-pen letter against CJ finally surfaces
  6. Kit Siang: It's Fairuz at the other end
  7. Lingam tape: Shame, shame, shame
This are the seven (7) titles in Malaysia Kini as on 21st of September 2007. That is easily more than half of the major reports on the Independent Online Daily. Makes you wonder what is the use of the main media right? Precisely, my point exactly.








Change pictures with a press of a button

Figure that binded albums are boring and over played. Picture frames have limited space and pretty much a hassle to keep changing the pictures in them. So most of the time the pictures in them are left as it is for years and years. Not because you don't have any pictures but you are pretty much just lazy to hack that thing open.

Figure something that can change at a press of a button and you can keep a collection of pictures that tells a story. The solution is adigital picture frame. It displays like an ordinary picture frame but at the same time just a press of a button and voila~ you have an album too. Plus wiping picture frames is not something you want to waste your time on weekends.

Petronas Acquires European Automotive Lubricants Producer



KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 21 (Bernama) -- Petronas has signed an agreement to acquire European automotive lubricants producer FL Selenia SpA from affiliates of US investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co LP for about one billion euro.

In a statement here Friday, the national oil corporation said the acquisition provided "an exciting opportunity to create and add value for the group and at the same time realise the global aspirations of its lubricants business".

Based in Italy, FL Selenia is Europe's largest independent producer of branded automotive lubricants and other functional fluids, with operations across Europe, South America and the United States.

FL Selenia's product range includes lubricants, transmission, anti-freeze and functional fluids for automobiles, trucks, agricultural tractors and earth-moving machinery as well as for other industrial equipment.

Petronas said FL Selenia's expertise and geographic focus is complementary with its existing lubricants business, which includes manufacturing, marketing and distribution of high-end lubricants in Malaysia and other countries.

Petronas' premium products are its range of synthetic lubricants under the Syntium brand.

The company said its lubricants business has witnessed considerable growth and penetration of new markets in recent years, with Syntium products currently available in China, India, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, South Africa and Switzerland.

The Syntium products currently command a strong market share in Malaysia, it added.

According to Petronas, the acquisition will bring another strong brand to the company's businesses and add critical mass to its lubricants markets in Europe, together with strong original equipment manufacturing (OEM) relationships and world-class research and development capabilities,

"This is expected to provide Petronas with a better position to penetrate the high growth Asian lubricants markets," it said.

Dresdner Kleinwort is acting as financial adviser to Petronas on this transaction which is subject to regulatory clearances.

"The entire management and staff of FL Selenia will remain with the company to continue to deliver its quality products and to work closely with Petronas to optimise the synergistic benefits of the two entities," Petronas said.

Business must be good. I wonder who gets a cut from the buyout.









Extra Audio clip further puts Lingam and Tun M into deeper mud.


After finding the two videos yesterday and reactions from many-many blogs the main media only carried this story in a small article and instead used the poor girl Nurin's case as a front page report. I was unsatisfied thus I told my self there should be more stuff on this matter.

I went snooping around further and I found this audio clip on the Suara Keadilan Dot Com. The voice is of Lingam as recognized from the video talking to "someone" that they could not identify.

Listen to sound clip here.

On top of that I also found a press statement made by Wan Azizah, president of PKR on the matter pertaining to the Lingam's Video.




I am appalled by the major media's reluctance on publishing this matter to the public to highlight the concerns of a major tampering of the Judicial System. What is the use of law without order being upheld in the highest regard?

The Lingam video as well as Anwar Ibrahim's press statement can be found here.

Our Media's shrunken balls on Lingam Video


From,NST:
Anwar releases clip of 'judgments being fixed'

PETALING JAYA: Former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yesterday alleged that a senior lawyer, discussed with a top member of the judiciary, how to "fix the judgments" of several cases.
He released an eight-minute video clip of the lawyer speaking to the senior judge on the phone, which purportedly took place in 2002.

Anwar alleged that the lawyer, who was embroiled in several controversies before, had liaison with several Chief Justices of the Federal Court since 1994.

"This, I believe, had reason to influence the outcome in a number of judicial proceedings," Anwar said.

Among the matters discussed in the video were the appointment of a top position in the judiciary and which judges should be appointed to hear certain cases.
The two also discussed cases involving Anwar, a former DAP stalwart, a tycoon, a minister and several senior judicial officials.

Anwar declined to divulge the source of the video, saying he wanted to protect the whistle-blower.

He said he would lodge reports with the Anti-Corruption Agency and the Bar Council and submit a memorandum to the Council of Rulers, urging them to set up a tribunal to investigate the allegations.

The Bar Council has called for an emergency meeting tomorrow to discuss the matter.

In a statement, chairman Ambiga Sreenevasan said the council was appalled at the allegations and described the video clip as "shocking".

Noting that rumours and allegations of such machinations had been rife since the judicial crisis in 1988, she said immediate and urgent action must be taken, including a Royal Commission of Inquiry be set up.


From, The Star:

In a fix over naming of judges
By SHAHANAAZ HABIB



PETALING JAYA: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) has released a video recording it obtained recently implicating a prominent lawyer purportedly brokering the appointment of judges.

The video clip shows the lawyer on the phone, seen and heard talking to someone who appears to be a very senior judge.

The shaky video with clear audio seems to have been recorded with a mobile phone without the knowledge of the lawyer.

Speaking at a press conference, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the video was taken in 2002 when the judge concerned was already in a high post.

He said the video had come into PKR’s possession only “very recently”, when a source who wanted to remain anonymous came forward and gave it to the party.

“I have met him (the source). But he wants to remain anonymous to protect his position and for security reasons,” he added.

Anwar said the source had disclosed that the video was taken at the lawyer’s home.

The video shows the lawyer talking about how he had supposedly helped get the judge appointed to the top judiciary posts through a prominent businessman and a politician, both of whom were close to the then Prime Minister.

The lawyer also speaks about how he was working through the same two contacts to get the judge elevated to higher positions.

The lawyer also named a number of prominent judges in the video.

The video is 14 minutes and 16 seconds long but PKR edited it to 8 minutes and 26 seconds to protect the identity of the source.

Anwar said PKR vice-president R. Sivarasa, who is also a lawyer, would lodge a report on the matter with the Anti-Corruption Agency and Bar Council as soon as possible, with the videotape as evidence.

He also said PKR president Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail would seek an audience with the Conference of Rulers on the matter.

Members of the media were also given copies of the edited videotape and the transcript.

When contacted, Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said he and his officers had viewed the video clip, reports SHAILA KOSHY.

“We are studying it at the moment. I will reserve my comments until then on what we will do.”

Bar Council president Ambiga Sreenevasan said they were appalled and disturbed by the clip, which “shows a lawyer apparently ‘fixing’ judicial appointments with a senior judge”.

She said there would be an emergency council meeting tomorrow. She also called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the matter.

As you can see...the name of the lawyer is not mentioned in both reports although in the press release given by Anwar gave the name out clearly. Also all other names mentioned in the video are not stated in the reports. Just subtle clues are given.

However Today Online gives out the name very clearly....

Anwar's video 'exposé'
Shows clip purportedly linking judge to 'appointment fixing'


THE integrity of Malaysia's judiciary has come under the spotlight once again after former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim made public a video purportedly linking a senior judge to an "appointment fixing" scandal.
.
The eight-minute video clip purportedly showed prominent lawyer V K Lingam discussing the appointment of judges on his mobile phone.
.
Supposedly filmed in 2002, the video — posted on Youtube, Malaysiakini and Keadilan's websites — was cut down from over 14 minutes to "protect its source". Mr Anwar, Keadilan's de facto leader, also showed the video to the media at a press conference at his office in Petaling Jaya yesterday.
.
In the clip, Mr Lingam was heard telling the other person at the other end of the line: "No, don't worry Datuk … We want to make sure our friends are there for the sake of the Prime Minister and the sake of the country."
.
Other well-known names mentioned in the phone conversation included a business tycoon and several prominent judges.
.
Mr Anwar told reporters: "This video recording implicates the highest office of judiciary ... It is mentioned in the context of a conspiracy to influence the appointment of senior judges and pervert the cause of justice ... In view of this, we have reasons to believe that whatever had transpired in this exchange in 2002 had some bearing on the outcomes in a number of judicial proceedings, including mine."
.
Mr Anwar, who was sacked as Deputy Prime Minister in 1998, spent six years in jail after he was convicted of sodomy and corruption charges. The sodomy conviction was later overturned but the corruption verdict still stands.
.
Responding to queries from Today on his next move, Mr Anwar said Keadilan would file a special appeal with the Conference of Rulers, which comprises the country's sultans, to assume their "constitutional roles" and take appropriate action. He also said that his party would be lodging a report with the Anti-Corruption Agency and the Bar Council.
.
In a statement yesterday, the Bar Council asked for an official investigation to be made into the video. Council president Ambiga Sreenevasan said: "With the emergence of this video clip, the concerns expressed by various quarters in relation to the judiciary can no longer be swept aside."

Clearly our local media here are tongue tied to reveal any specific details. Why? Scared is it? No balls?

US now keen to hear Malaysia? Hogwash~!


Can you believe this? They said (the US) wants to hear from Malaysia on issues affecting the world, such as the instability in the Middle East, and counter-terrorism. Hear only? Not listen...so what is the use? Year in and year out we say the same thing. I think America is deaf and dumb. Read it DEAF and DUMB~!

Full report from The Star.








UPDATE: Anwar attempts to expose a lot with this video.




Something bad and ugly is brewing....
This video was found on Anwar Ibrahim's Blog and implicates certain people who's names are mentioned very clearly. From what is written in the article these are very serious allegations. What is true and which is what I dare not say or assume but if this piece of evidence (doctored or not again I have no clue or proof) will put a lot of people in trouble.

Now this is the latest update...a video with Anwar making a statement on the video shown above.

We'll see how it unfolds with great interest.

Statistics that should raise a lot of concern.





A reader of mine Human Book left this long comment that details this long list of statistics. Now I do not know as to how accurate the figures are but it would be good if any one can validate on the matter issued here.

Below is the whole comment that he/she posted.....

List of racial discriminations in Malaysia, practiced by government as well as government agencies. This list is an open secret. Best verified by government itself because it got the statistics.

This list is not in the order of importance, that means the first one on the list is not the most important and the last one on the list does not mean least important.

This list is a common knowledge to a lot of Malaysians, especially those non-malays (Chinese, Ibans, Kadazans, Orang Asli, Tamils, etc) who were being racially discriminated.

Figures in this list are estimates only and please take it as a guide only. Government of Malaysia has the most correct figures. Is government of Malaysia too ashamed to publish their racist acts by publishing racial statistics?

This list cover a period of about 50 years since independence (1957).

List of racial discriminations (Malaysia):

(1) Out of all the 5 major banks, only one bank is multi-racial, the rest are controlled by malays

(2) 99% of Petronas directors are malays

(3) 3% of Petronas employees are Chinese

(4) 99% of 2000 Petronas gasoline stations are owned by malays

(5) 100% all contractors working under Petronas projects must be bumis status

(11) 95% of government contracts are given to malays

(12) 100% all business licensees are controlled by malay government e.g. Approved Permits, Taxi Permits, etc

(13) 80% of the Chinese rice millers in Kedah had to be sold to malay controlled Bernas in 1980s. Otherwise, life is make difficult for Chinese rice millers

(14) 100 big companies set up, managed and owned by Chinese Malaysians were taken over by government, and later managed by malays since 1970s e.g. MISC, UMBC, UTC, etc

(15) At least 10 Chinese owned bus companies (throughout Malaysia, throughout 40 years) had to be sold to MARA or other malay transport companies due to rejection by malay authority to Chinese application for bus routes and rejection for their application for new buses

(16) 2 Chinese taxi drivers were barred from driving in Johor Larkin bus station. There are about 30 taxi drivers and 3 are Chinese in October 2004. Spoiling taxi club properties was the reason given

(17) 0 non-malays are allowed to get shop lots in the new Muar bus station (November 2004)

(18) 8000 billion ringgit is the total amount the government channeled to malay pockets through ASB, ASN, MARA, privatisation of government agencies, Tabung Haji etc, through NEP over 34 years period

(20) 144 Indian primary schools closed down since 1968 - 2000

(21) 2637 malay primary schools built since 1968 - 2000

(22) 2.5% is government budget for Chinese primary schools. Indian schools got only 1%, malay schools got 96.5%

(23) While a Chinese parent with RM1000 salary (monthly) cannot get school-text-book-loan, a malay parent with RM2000 salary is eligible

(24) 10 all public universities vice chancellors are malays

(25) 5% - the government universities lecturers of non-malay origins had been reduced from about 70% in 1965 to only 5% in 2004

(26) Only 5% is given to non-malays for government scholarships over 40 years

(27) 0 Chinese or Indians were sent to Japan and Korea under "Look East Policy"

(28) 128 STPM Chinese top students could not get into the course that they aspired e.g. Medicine (in 2004)

(29) 10% place for non-bumi students for MARA science schools beginning from year 2003, but only 7% are filled. Before that it was 100% malays

(30) 50 cases whereby Chinese and Indian Malaysians, are beaten up in the National Service program in 2003

(31) 25% is Malaysian Chinese population in 2004, drop from 45% in 1957

(32) 7% is the present Malaysian Indians population (2004), a drop from 12% in 1957

(33) 2 million Chinese Malaysians had emigrated to overseas since 40 years ago

(34) 0.5 million Indian Malaysians had emigrated to overseas

(35) 3 million Indonesians had migrated into Malaysia and became Malaysian citizens with bumis status

(36) 600000 are the Chinese and Indian Malaysians with red IC and were rejected repeatedly when applying for citizenship for 40 years. Perhaps 60% of them had already passed away due to old age. This shows racism of how easily Indonesians got their citizenship compare with the Chinese and Indians

(40) 1 Dewan Gan Boon Leong (in Malacca) was altered to other name (e.g. Dewan Serbaguna or sort) when it was being officially used for a few days. Government try to shun Chinese names. This racism happened in around year 2000 or sort

(41) 0 churches/temples were built for each housing estate. But every housing estate got at least one mosque/surau built

(42) 3000 mosques/surau were built in all housing estates throughout Malaysia since 1970. No churches, no temples are required to be built in housing estates

(43) 1 Catholic church in Shah Alam took 20 years to apply to be constructed. But told by malay authority that it must look like a factory and not look like a church. Still not yet approved in 2004

(44) 1 publishing of Bible in Iban language banned (in 2002)

(45) 0 of the government TV stations (RTM1, RTM2, TV3) are directors of non-malay origins

(46) 30 government produced TV dramas and films always showed that the bad guys had Chinese face, and the good guys had malay face. You can check it out since 1970s. Recent years, this tendency becomes less

(47) 10 times, at least, malays (especially Umno) had threatened to massacre the Chinese Malaysians using May 13 since 1969

(48) 20 constituencies won by DAP would not get funds from the government to develop. Or these Chinese majority constituencies would be the last to be developed

(49) 100 constituencies (parliaments and states) had been racistly re-delineated so Chinese voters were diluted that Chinese candidates, particularly DAP candidates lost in election since 1970s

(50) Only 3 out of 12 human rights items are ratified by Malaysia government since 1960

(51) 0 - elimination of all forms of racial discrimination (UN Human Rights) is not ratified by Malaysia government since 1960s

(53) 50 cases each year whereby Chinese, especially Chinese youths being beaten up by malay youths in public places. We may check at police reports provided the police took the report, otherwise there will be no record

(54) 20 cases every year whereby Chinese drivers who accidentally knocked down malays were seriously assaulted or killed by malays

(55) 12% is what ASB/ASN got per annum while banks fixed deposit is only about 3.5% per annum

There are hundreds more racial discriminations in Malaysia to add to this list of "colossal" racism. It is hope that the victims of racism will write in to expose racism.

Malaysia government should publish statistics showing how much malays had benefited from the "special rights" of malays and at the same time tell the statistics of how much other minority races are being discriminated.

Hence, the responsibility lies in the Malaysia government itself to publish unadulterated statistics of racial discrimination.

If the Malaysia government hides the statistics above, then there must be some evil doings, immoral doings, shameful doings and sinful doings, like the Nazi, going on onto the non-malays of Malaysia.

Civilized nation, unlike evil Nazi, must publish statistics to show its treatment on its minority races. This is what Malaysia must publish……….

We are asking for the publication of the statistics showing how "implementation of special rights of malays" had inflicted colossal racial discrimination onto non-malays.


So, anyone out there with proof that any bit of these figures are right? A good citation would be excellent.








I want to do my bit.... Who is this girl?


The search is on for a serial molester and perhaps turned killer with the latest finding of a little girl's body found in a sports bag outside a shop. For anyone who know who is the pictured here please contact the nearest police station to leave your statements....




I pray and hope for whoever who did this will be found and dealt with accordingly by law.









UiTM enhances English learning experience for lectureres and students.


Haha...finally some initiative from the mono ethnic University for the betterment of it's lecturers specifically...sourced directly from the company's website...

Just English Sdn Bhd is pleased to announce that all UiTM branches and its college affiliates across Malaysia have adopted Just English magazine and its website to enhance the English learning experience for both students and lecturers.

Perhaps they are indeed listening. Is my publicity of some of their incompetent teaching staff in mastering English is working. Perhaps so.

Montague stated that our race relations is bad until we eat at different corners.


I know the whole interview thing is getting stale. But I have to really wonder that if many think that what that lady asked our minister is in fact the truth here is one point that she mentioned that I would love clarification from anyone. Are our race relations that bad?

She was referring on a study made on race relations in Malaysia. The findings of that study was correlated from school children. Now I remember reading this from somewhere before. But no matter, my point is that Montague did mention of it and our minister did answer. Regardless if it is true or not but he still did answer.

So if many said Syed Hamid Albar was lying through his teeth than what is the truth to race relations in this country? Now let me ask YOU....Do you sit and eat amongst your own race all the time? If given a choice of place to work that pays the same amount, would you work at a company which you are the minority race or a majority one?

Are we responsible the way our young ones perceive another race? Let take an example, a Malay father driving home after picking up his kids from school. Just as he wants to turn into a corner another vehicle darts out from the junction. That vehicle was driven by an Indian. Just right about that point the father shouts and starts swearing~ "Pundek punya Pariah~!Buta ka~!??". Now tell me this does not happen even to ourselves once in awhile.

The kids in the back seat already gets this image and impression that an Indian when does wrong can be called "Pundek" and "Pariah". It works the same way for if other combination of races are applied into the same situation. Doesn't all that points back to us, our parents and our peers within our own ethnic community?

My question is simple...WHY? WHY has such extreme name calling and derogatory insults and profanity being practised throughout these 50 god send years of Independence? Am I any better than you? Are you any better than me? It is something that simple to start and over the years we were those kids sitting at the back and our parents will be shouting and gesturing statements like "Pendek", "Babi", "Pukitiaw", "Poreki", "Cibai", "Cinapek", "Pariah", "Melayu Bangsat" and etc...

So why are we over sensitive when such remarks are exchanged publicly to one another? It has become staple. For a good 50 years it is as good as being in our blood to hoot and bark racial derogatory remarks. Now, you and me are the father or mother to our very own children. If we so much hate the way ethnic relations have become why not simply scrape the habit of using those derogatory remarks? Simple?

Perhaps from there onwards we can slowly tackle more stubborn things like start eating at the same table. A Malay using chosticks and bowls, an Indian eating sambal belacan with petai, and a chinese eating from a banana leaf drinking yoghurt. Swap it any every way you think possible.

Finally for God's sake please stop calling Malays lazy, Indians liars and Chinese gangsters. Because there is every bit of that in each race anyway.









Varsity Election rules to be fixed . Dream on.


Err...you mean it has never been fixed before this? Why is it that this whole varsity elections thing is a big fuss with the ruling party? I am not saying government because by right the civil service is of a separate entity and only serves to the administration of the country not to serve political interest.

AUKU says that no students can be involved in politics but in reality this is contradicting. Simply because even the simplest core of terms are used to mimic actual political stand between pro-government (I call this pro-ruling party) and pro-opposition.

So exactly what is to be gained from Varsity Elections? Well first and foremost it is supposedly to have student representation in the senate to "fight" for better facilities and everything else that matters to being a student. But those who have been into public varsities know how dirty can it get.

Year in and year out there is something that is bound to cause a stir on campus. Although there is no clear link of outside intervention but many vouch that there are such close proximity of politically influenced individuals with those running in the varsity elections.

Fighting for more tables, computers and buses are certainly not in the agenda. Who would be stupid enough to believe that? There is something more at stake. Future politicians today start very young. As soon as they step foot into public universities that are bombarded by so called administration loyalist and opposition cohorts. They are told to pick sides, and ensure them so called better future campus life and beyond. Pick the wrong side and you shall me marginalised for the "mistake" and end up like many bright students who feel cheated of the higher education system.

Who dares to tell the true tale? I can only see it from the surface and already I shout "BULLSHIT~!". As for the dream of having a fair election in varsities....truthfully it is only a dream. For as long as the administration of the varsity is involved in the process of the elections there will never be a fair election in varsities ever. Perhaps may I suggest a separate non union and non profit organization to be set up to function just like the Election Commission should do a bit of justice. Just a bit~









Up, up and up....starving resources.


Wheat, milk, corn and even soy bean based products are on a price hike. You feel the pinches yet? Somehow no matter how much we demand for a pay raise all the efforts seem to be in vain in the end.

So the second half of the year beginning from the pay raise and the COLA to the annual budget slowly everything works it way downwards. Owh, well at least it is the fasting month something could be saved there. Sigh~

Hallamak ZB~ I totally comprehend your stand.


Now now....I think this is getting a bit out of hand.

Dear ZB and all the rest who reads these pages of mine,

Let us all be rational here. How important our country is to us I bet is the same between you, me and the rest of the Malaysians. However the gravity of how we express our tireless Nationalism are very different between each other.

Go ahead trade whatever comments and opinions. But please do not go overboard and say whoever is a bigot and all the what nots you can possibly think off. But whatever it is let this be my public apology for making you go through all the trouble of posting a very long comment in explaining your self. As well us both for assuming each other did not get the whole point in the first place.

As for Mahaguru I have no fault in saying what he says is wrong or right. Everyone here is free to post their opinions. And I being the author of this blog have every right to highlight any comments and make it a published article to support my views and rebuttals.

If anyone wishes to explain in further detail on any of their comments please do so in your own blogs and make a backlink to the source that you retrieved it from. That way it should serve as good healthy reference as well as help drive more traffic to each others blog.

I believe that the more opinions given and the more rebuttals and explanations received, all of us could have a better understanding of all possibilities that could strike our future in Boleh Land. Just let us simply leave personal attacks on individuals in their respective blogs rather than lashing it out on others.

p.s: I love to know if you do have a blog of your own ZB. Because I bet it will be an interesting read. :D










This is my question...graphically.

Look at what you have done oh UiTM~!


For the sake of your MALAY students you devour your own kind that are helpless. What else do I have to say? The images tells the whole story. FYI...this was like 2 days before the fasting month started. I am ashamed....so very ashamed~!
