Election petition for Ulu Selangor is a waste of time.

Fact: PKR are sore loosers. Especially when they have had a winning streak.

Fact: Zaid Ibrahim is a sore looser. Jumping from BN to PKR does not guarantee a vote of popularity.

Reflecting on the outcome of Hulu Selangor is a bitter pill to swallow. But to put it into retrospect BN has done the right thing in concentrating where it counts most. So for all kinds of allegations made by Zaid on behalf of PKR it wont make any difference. We all know the sort of election system we have is not entirely transparent especially the part where the ballots are counted but the outcome is reflected purely in the numbers. 1700 plus votes is a lot to loose by and to come up with that figure the recounts are many.

The PKR camp surely made a bad call in strategy somewhere that they deserved the results they got. Putting Hulu Selangor aside they should be concentrating the by elections in Sibu. BN has done just that for Hulu Selangor where they took the loss in previous by elections and made decisions where it counts. Zaid should know a petition could not do much thus he should just continue campaigning for Sibu with the rest of the PKR jing bang.

If PKR were to dwell in this then it might look like a landslide victory for BN in Sibu where BN has been so dominant in Sarawak for many-many years. Get over it Zaid and put energy instead to better use. Strike that attitude as null and void, it is wont be valid in Sibu.

Read the report from Star.

BN gains Hulu Selangor. PKR cross legged.

First things firsts. I am not a Hulu Selangor voter. So that settles that I am merely an observer from the outside. BN got the much needed boost and PKR had to swallow a bitter pill. The speculators and me included keep asking what went wrong for PKR? I could not agree more with Mahaguru. Perhaps this time around BN beat PKR by candidate to candidate.

I don't think that will change much in terms on how BN intends to rule. But the outlook may indicate some form of change for the better and perhaps Najib took the task to choosing a candidate very seriously. Now it just remains the fact of how many more like Kamalanathan does BN have in their roster. Because they need every single one they have to win back 2/3 majority come next General Elections.

For now it is time for those in Hulu Selangor to cash in on the campaign promises. BN better pay-up or their Kamalanathan might just wet his pants and weep silently.

Hulu Selangor and Zaid Ibrahim

The political career of one Zaid Ibrahim can be said as a roller coaster. But to judge a man solely based on hearsay is wrong and unfair. However the sources available to the public and especially those in Hulu Selangor is neither promising or promoting so now the people in Hulu Selangor need to just hold their breath and mark X on the ballot paper when the time comes.

Hulu Selangor hosts a parliamentary seat and is a great deal to both the government and the opposition. It means one mouth and opinion more in terms of vote to the various tabled legislations throughout the year. Which may be what determines the future of the country and the rest of us Malaysians in general.

As usual the by elections held so far since the General Elections are always sprinkled with controversy, name calling, taunting and ridiculous accusations bordering child play. I do have to figure out why place a man who has no relation to Hulu Selangor to contest? For the people, they do not know him. But just for the fact to have an experienced lawyer in their side in parliament is the objective of the opposition. Which seems to prove that Karpal does not give that edge anymore.

With BN poking fun at Zaid for his gambling, drinking and other liberties that has yet to be proven true on all accounts.... the salvos maybe intensely firing but at the most it sounds like just empty farts. We know that lawyers are essentially professional liars with fat pay... one day they can defend a single mother for her rights to her children and another they can defend a serial rapist that raped that mother in the first place. So indeed Zaid might just be the man for the opposition.

Zaid ceases to realize that he is indeed the pawn in all this. From the days he was a minister he was used..... and now in Hulu Selangor he is used again. So a lawyer with no morals and principles will happily lap and wag where the money is offered just as long he stays alive, rich and with some consolation of power. I feel sad and sorry for the voters in Hulu Selangor where both the ruling party and the opposition is not seriously attending to your needs but more to have a bigger slice of pie in parliament.

The basis of APCO - 1Malaysia debacle by the opposition is flacid.

It is a simple concept.... APCO rendered it's service for a price which the government paid for a marketing plan for a more harmonious Malaysia. To me there is not a problem when APCO is Isreali owned or did anything for the Isreali government. It is on that basis that the opposition crying foul over the 1Malaysia concept and the campaign for public awareness I say is flacid.

It would not make an inch of a difference too if lets say the government engaged a local PR and marketing firm. It is a just a business deal to render a service to get a public message across as fast as possible and in the most efficient way possible. As usual with the parliament deciding to debate on this issue rather than issues like GST we the rakyat should be aware that it's our tax money they are using to sit on the bench and argue about something so senseless. So that is a total waste of resources and effort.

But the opposition is very well known for their tactics to balloon a petty issue. Rather than question on the morality of spending RM77 million over a slogan why not try to figure what can the next RM77 million can be used for the wellbeing of the rakyat? This all again boils down back to Anwar who apparently still commands international scrutiny over everything that the government does against him.

On another note of claiming there are Isreali spies in our security forces defies belief. Come on ~ what could possibly be the reason for Israel to plant their agents in the country? If sambal belacan is what they are searching for than they wont find any in the armed forces. They should try Chow Kit instead, they might even get a nice discount.

Owh Bung~ Afraid of wife is it?

Yeah~ well as they say men would always want more than they can handle especially when it comes to women. So in this specific case of Bung Mokhtar it is simply not surprising. But one can already tell that he is a cheeky fellow since he made that remark in parliament "Mana ada bocor? Batu Gajah pun bocor tiap-tiap bulan juga." So what is really funny is that the way he admitted to polygamy with Hot Rod Zizie Ezette. Which we can surely guess the hush-hush approach to his marriage is to avoid awakening the dormant beast of his lawfully wedded wife.

However with a few snooping reporters setting their intelligent reconnaissance techniques to good use and fished out Bung almost freshly wet. Obviously it does not help when he appeared along side his vixen at a popular local awards night. I find this entertaining not because he is a politician with a celebrity second wife but more to the fact that how scared men can be of their wives when the itchy crotch question come to mind.

So what is the resolution? Obviously Bung had his "First" night with his new wife. So going in and out of court does not really do much.... he would obviously go "home" to vixen rather than get pummeled by his first wife. But all this could have been avoided if and only if Bung stood up strong like he did in his pants when he laid eyes in Ziezie and be a man and tell his first wife his intentions to marry another.

Now, all Bung can do is hope and pray that his old wife would not sue the daylights out of him.... which all of us know that has a slim chance of not happening. Good one Bung..... I guess your secret "Bocor" anyway. Hahahahahah~!!!!

How would you like better pay?

The topic is actually a very stupid question. But somehow it struck me this morning like the flat side of a knife on garlic. Slightly teary eyed I murmured to my self "why not?" But lets look at the competition. Where I work there is not really much of a competition. However it's a place where the adage "Know none, do none" applies even when it is the job scope in the first place.

It has come to my realization that foreigners are idiots. At least some of the ones I have worked with are. However the management thinks they are highly skilled and very hardworking. Yes indeed they are skilled.... specifically in bullshitting all the way to Timbuktu.

But the management thinks that hiring foreigners is a good marketing exercise. That carries a significant amount of brownie points to utter "We have an experienced international team". Wow! That sounds mighty impressive in pre-bid documents and presentations. For that fact we locals tend to get a bit left out in the job market. Especially if the international resource is from India, Indonesia, Thailand and other random 3rd world nations.

Now back to the title.... of course I would like better pay! But does that mean competing with incompetent foreign labour with shit as brains and an ass for body? Let me state this clearly.... working for a MNC is all swell. But working in a local firm that employs so called professional foreigners can be a pain in the nether regions at times. Of course some are honest~ but is the cost justified for their expertise?

To us locals this is where these foreigners are ass holes. First, they know nuts about our culture. Guys dont hold each others hands for any reason in this country unless of course they like to polish each others knobs. Second, of course they know English.... but they cant speak, let alone write complete sentences without confusing a 10 year old. Yet we have to take them into account as valid competition. Why? Because these bastards get paid so much more just because they hold passports of a different colour.

Look, if they are good and I mean really good I won't give my two nuts a chance to question how much are they paid. But if the merit on pay grade is made based on "international" status then kindly make a u-turn for the nearest Malaysian border.
So YES I would want better pay simply based on my merit that I know my shit and I am a proud Malaysian. Now for all the overpaid foreigners who think they are that great just take note.... not all locals you work with are stupid. So give us hardworking Malaysians our well deserved money please and get the hell out of our country.


*The author has nothing against foreigners working in the country if it creates good competition. But the useless and lying piece of shit seriously do not deserve to take home the Malaysian Ringgit.

Thaksin the terrorist?

Thaksin the current man of the hour in Thailand. Seems that his supporters follows as he says unconditionally. Which is a very worrying thing. The clash of civilians and soldiers shall always result in a very obvious outcome. Someone will end up dead, more will end up hurt and more will blame each other who was responsible for it. The leaders don't really do much but shrugs and gives press statements that no one gave the order to kill.

Great. Thaksin has indeed proven how influential a leader he is to his band of Red ants. But the question remains... is Thaksin a terrorist? TO a certain extent I do think so. Once a national hero that has fallen from grace and with that many supporters can twist into a monster that frightens the public. Not to say the least all he wants is fresh elections to satisfy his ego self that he does not have the support of the whole of Thailand.

As Malaysians, we have to take into account that Thailand is a neighbour. Also along the border there will surely be some influence spilling over. Is Thaksin's influence strong enough to prompt a move from his supporters at the border to act to his bidding? If so it could be that Thaksin is terrorist material after all. I say our armed forces should keep a vigilant eye at the border gates and surrounding areas. We wouldn't want a war plot brewing on our doorstep.

Bills are no shrinking matter.

For ages and I mean ages I have seen my bills grow from just one during my good old bachelor days and now to more than I can mentally count. I wouldn't even dare to start on how much I have spent on bills alone. Of course there many sort of discounts out there but there is always a catch in some mouthwatering deal.

I have changed cell-phone plans over the past 5 years more times than an apple tree can grow apples in a year. This is all so I can save a few bucks off from
the cheapest cellphone plans. To a certain extent my manual labour seemed to work.

Don't let me get to my credit card bills. Owh, they are just a pain. Wondered why I had to pick up the cards in the first place. Perhaps I was just naive and jumped the gun when picking a plan. Should have just
compared credit card plans and see which offers the best rates and service. But yeah how could one digest all the information and filter in their heads on which is good or not? Who reads the fine prints?

So as I was ambling along online finding good deals being the cheapskate and underpaid I am, viola! I might have just found the solution. Now why haven't someone thought something like
Billshrink earlier? Finally someone with the same thoughts as I did but actually made a service out of it to serve the greater good. Looks like I can now keep my hard-earned underpaid money!
