While the dust yet to settle on Bersih 3.0 the nation seems so drunk. So lost and so confused.

The best news today surely about Nayati Shamelin Moodliar who was released after been kidnapped for almost a week.  This young boy was released after an undisclosed amount of cash ransom was paid to the abductors.  During the press conference Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh have said the following; “The family decided to pay the ransom. The demand was made immediately after the kidnapping. Police are still investigating the case under the Kidnapping Act, and if found guilty, the suspects will receive the death sentence,”

Why is he talking about if found guilty the suspects will be hanged. Have you found the suspects? Arrest them and charge them and then tell us what punishment they will face. After all on many cases before this the only thing you guys found was dead bodies or innocents children.

More on our famous Police force.  The KL City Police released photo shots of 49 suspects who were responsible for the mayhem and violence on Bersih 3.0. Good. Arrest them investigate them and charge them.  Based on the report in TMI Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh told a press conference today the 49 persons were being investigated for various crimes under the Penal Code related to unlawful assembly and disobeying police orders.

When asked if any policemen have been listed as suspects he said there were no numbers yet but said it was not an issue as there are “no problems tracing” members of the force.

“Where is the proof? Show us. These are only allegations which must have proof,” he said when asked repeatedly about various allegations of police brutality.

I am sure Mr.Mohamed Salleh never heard what YouTube is. He must be the kind who use his PC for Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook alone. He must be using the kind of Smartphone which does not support social media applications. And surely he does not read anything but Utusan Malaysia. Are you confused? I am.

Another big story of the day is Malaysian Airlines and Air Asia share swap deal which now will be reversed. Let’s not get into details and confuse ourselves even more with corporate jargons and acronym soup. We are already high on acronyms. We even can publish a book with all the acronyms that been feed to us on daily basis by our government.  We must be the most confused nation to have a such a high profile deal and roll back less than a year? Such a crucial business decision was made and announced without considering or involving all the stakeholders? I know our Ministers are famous for flip flop but we sunk so low now that even public listed companies which at once considered as national treasure taking the stakeholders for a ride. What is wrong with us?

 

I am little dumbfounded with all this noise about Astro censoring the foreign content. I am like – what you don’t know that? How long you have been watching Astro? From day one Astro have been censoring all the content. I mean ALL. Your AXN, BBC, Disney, SUN TV, CNN, Celestial and what not.

All this turn-around channels are censored for mainly two reasons. The first reason is to remove all the foreign advertisements and second reason is to remove all so called unsuitable parts of the content. Unsuitable to whom you might ask? The answer is –it is unsuitable to the gullible Malaysians who always need the big brother to tell us what to watch and what to hear. (also what to read and wear). You might ask who decide this and that is unsuitable for us to watch, hear, read and so forth. We have almost a long list for that namely KDN, LPF, MCMC, and PDRM and so on and so forth. In fact I will not be surprised if the list is as long as the list of banned books in Malaysia. While amazed me more is – the content provider themselves seems surprised. What? You didn’t notice your broadcast has been tampered all this while? Are you joking? I am not naïve to buy that. Astro in business for more than 15 years now and you are telling me you never knew Astro do chop job on your content?

Talking about censorship I am even more confused. Yesterday Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, The information, communication and culture minister defended Astro’s chop job over BBC’s Bersih 3.0 coverage. He was quoted by TMI that he was stressing that the satellite pay television provider should be given credit for showing only the “best parts” of last Saturday’s protest for electoral reforms. The irony is his ministry must have also recognized that on the same day almost all the mainstream media (press) were publishing porn acts of an opposition figure. Some even went to the extend providing URL’s of the sites which hosts those porn clips. Tell me if you are not confused. We have BBC news censored based on local regulations for the sake of national interest but on the other hand mainstream media giving out porn clips URL’s. Since we are already talking about mainstream press publications – NST might be facing legal suit from Australian Senator for misreporting a three year old speech by him and effectively painting him as Anti Islam. Forget about misreporting or twisting of the facts. The bizarre is – he was here as an international observant – he spoke his mind – and now we are bashing him as Anti Islam. What Islam or Anti Islam got to do here? When you lose the ground to the sensible mass – worry not – there is always race and religion cards to play with. This is almost a SOP for mainstream media. Just like the SOP of confiscating media personals cameras as what our Home Minister said. 

When the whole nation seems like in the royal circus – I was utterly shocked to read a young family of 5 commits suicide due to financial difficulties. How tragic it can be for a couple who are in early thirties and with 3 kids (the youngest one is 4 years old) decide to commit suicide. There must be something horribly wrong with our system despite all this economy transformation – minimum wage – better FDI better GDP and so on. I am confused.

I decided to join Bersih 2.0 because I was outraged when they lock down the city. For Bersih 3.0 I was moved to come down again for one single reason. The reason was the immaturity of KL Mayor. Do watch the video clip of his press conference after his meeting with Bersih reps and you will know what I am talking about. From the moment Bersih 3.0 announced the drama have started to unfold as expected. We witnessed the flip and flop and idiotic acts of those in power.  The first couple of days the KL Mayor were given lead role in this debacle.  We reach the climax of the Pre Bersih when the Police obtained Ex Parter Court Order for Dataran Merdeka. Thus the official venue was off limit. DBKL secured Dataran with three layers of barricades but it was the Police who add another layer of razor wire. This lead the public to place signs such as “Welcome to Tel Aviv” & “This is Tel Aviv” on top of the razor wires. This is such an irony since we Malaysians always have so much hatred towards the Zionist and Isreal. Despite the court order and the razor wires – on the eve of Bersih 3.0, KLites send a clear message to the authority that they will not allow to be intimated by gathering at intersection of Dataran. The size of the crowd apparently exceeds three thousand. Just like Bersih 2.0 – the latest edition of Bersih last Saturday was very jovial and on fiesta mode at least until the hell broke loose.  The mass was from all walks of life. They came down to the capital city from all over Malaysia. The people want to be heard. They get united for common cause, a very noble cause.

I will not discuss in depth my personal experience on participating in Bersih 3.0 but instead I will share my opinion on the three main actors of the BERSIH 3.0. This is also because I have left the conflict zone much earlier and before all the violence erupts.  The three main players are 1. Bersih and the people of Malaysia. 2. The PR Politicians. 3. The Police

  1. Bersih & The people of Malaysia.

Bersih 3.0 is all about the people, the ordinary Malaysian citizens.  Datuk S.Ambiga and other affiliated NGO(s) had a clear objective which is to send a strong message to the ruling government. Malaysians were unhappy. Malaysians demand for a fair and clean election. Malaysians wants to see more transparency. The people want to be heard.  Tens of thousands of Malaysians gathered despite the scorching sun. I must say – the heat was unbearable. The size of the crowd itself proved democracy will prevail. I will not speculate the numbers but what I believe is we outdone Bersih 2.0. This is also the clear sign that people will not budge nor intimated. The crowd was multiracial just like the previous Bersih gatherings. Everyone was genuinely friendly and helpful to each other. Everyone had respect to each other. Sense of belonging to the same nation eliminates any other differences. Neither race nor religion was a matter. Bear in mind that none of them were wearing 1Malaysia badge. I bet you don’t wonder why. Even though Bersih 3.0 Duduk & Bantah should start at 1400Hours and end at 1600Hours, it started much earlier and of course it ends so much later. Let’s leave the violent drama scenes for later and let me highlight one bizarre scenario. The crowd gathered at all intersection leading to Dataran Merdeka. Apparently the Police have said the mass can gather or assemble anywhere but Dataran. So we did. What I and many others could not understand is, if we can gather 100 meters away from Dataran; why can’t we gather in Dataran itself? Why the reluctance to allow the organizers to use the venue? Isn’t beyond our comprehension when DBKL and Police allow the citizens to gather on any street but not in a single designated location?  Genius.  Anyway the Malaysians were much smarter, much more civil and responsible as well. I witness with my own eyes many participants picked up almost any kind of litters on the road. By 8 pm my twitter timeline was filled with tweets urging people to get back on the roads with garbage bag and help the good Samaritans clean up the streets.  This is Malaysia for you. Never mind the senseless leaders and others in power. We the RAKYAT have moral responsibilities and will always act with civilities.

 

  1. The Pakatan Rakyat Politicians.

Bersih 3.0 was once again endorsed by the Pakatan Rakyat. This does not mean BERSIH 3.0 is an idea from the opposition – it was not neither organized nor managed by the opposition. But at the same time I must give credit to PAS for mobilizing Unit Amal PAS to assist on crowd control. They did a great job. It was not an easy job to manage such a big crowd for the youths who lack experience but high on spirit. In one of the video – I can see clearly the volunteers from Unit Amal PAS trying their best to stop the participants from marching into Dataran area. Kudos to Unit Amal Pas. However I am disgusted with PKR leaders. Azmin Ali, Surendran, Sivarasa as well as Anwar Ibrahim  did give very provocative speech to the crowd. This is unwarranted. As this is not a PR event – I wonder why many of you from PKR need to give speech which clearly went against Ambiga’s stand that we will not breach the barricade. I personally will blame the speeches from Surendran/Sivarasa and Anwar Ibrahim for mayhem and violent that erupted. Please bear in mind Ambiga already announced the Rally is over and the crowd should disperse. This is when Anwar and his boys hijacked the whole scene. This was the reason for me and my friends to leave the crowd as well. You can find a video on Youtube where the famous LB lawyer  Fahri Azzat confirming this is how it’s all started. Even before that – much earlier before 2pm I witnessed something which was very bad in taste. Azmin Ali was making a round among the crowds but he did that with a strong group of bodyguards. Why would you need bodyguards when you walk among your fellow citizens? What is the difference between you and the shenanigans from the other side? If there is something that PKR need to learn – that will be being humble. We could not fathom the arrogance of BN so you guys please behave. On the other note – there are many reports quoted that Azmin went to negotiate with the Police. What is there to negotiate? There is a court order. Deal with it in the court. Period.

  1. The Police

There is nothing to deny with regards to all the violence and the vandalism which took place on Saturday.  The fact is – we need a balance account on what really did happen.  If a mob who breached and break the barricade was the reason for rounds & rounds of tear gas and endless water cannon spraying chemical laced waters – tell me why the FRU shooting tear gas all the way in Petaling Street? I don’t remember seeing any barricades in Petaling Street! Once again excessive force been deployed by the cops. Surely you’ll ask what about the police car which lost control while being attacked by the participants and the angry mob that overturned the car. This is an isolated case. There are too many versions of stories been told and written with regards to this incident. I will not defend the acts of the angry mob and other vandalisms but at the same time everyone need to watch the scores of videos uploaded on Youtube which showcasing the extreme levels of Police brutalities. Some of it is so gross that you’ll never  believe it happened in Malaysia. Have we lost our morale ground? Shooting tear gas and water cannon spraying chemical laced waters is one thing but a group of men in Police uniform punching and kicking an arrested person? I dare to say that was the peak of Police Brutality Malaysia has ever witness.  It does not stop there. Many reports filed that the Media personnel’s was harassed and assaulted as well. A photographer was arrested and Al Jazeera complained their camera been smashed by police. On top of all this, once again those who were detained by police was denied legal representatives.

Before I end this article – I have these two remarks to make;

  1. As much as the social media rule the day especially on occasion like Bersih 3.0 – everyone should apply self-restrain from spreading unconfirmed news and statuses. All this rumors can drive the crowd into madness where the emotion already running high.
  2. You like it or not, Malaysia is changing. Malaysians no longer shy for a change. When you see videos and pictures of a man lying in front of FRU truck and the young ones do enjoy the encounter with tear gas trigger happy cops – this is not a good sign for those in power. The Rakyat and Malaysian politics will not be the same anymore. Street rallies will be part and parcel of our Democracy process. Bersih together with the people making the history.

My Monday morning started up well until I read a tweet with a link to an article on mainstream media. Shortly my Twitter timeline start to fill up with the same subject. Once again we have someone trying hard to smear Bersih and its chairperson’s image and credibility. I said once again since sometime back the same tactics used to ruin her popularity without much success. This time around we have someone from opposition trying the same antics after the mainstream media’s failure.

The Star today reported that PAS central committee member Nasharudin Mat Isa said Bersih 2.0 Chairman Datuk S.Ambiga not fit to lead the movement because of her ties with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community. You can find the article on the following link; thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/4/23/nation/11157482&sec=nation

Just like you, I am wondering what is the relevance in here to correlate LGBT and BERSIH? It’s downright stupid for him to suggest Datuk Ambiga not fit to lead the coalition just because her stand and take on LGBT cause. At least she has a principle and not a hypocrite. Do we need to remind you – how many times you have been the ‘insider’ trying hard to work on PAS- UMNO joint venture? Lucky that in PAS the majorities has clear conscience and dignity. This is why clowns like you and Hasan Ali always been turned down or sacked.  Mainstream media which owned and/or controlled by UMNO failed miserably with smear campaign on Datuk Ambiga and now Nasharudin being the striker who trying to score own goal for PAS.  Too bad – her credibility and capabilities are far more solid than yours. No matter how Islamic you try to be.

Mr. Nasharudin also reported have said “PAS and other parties must come forward and lead it. This is the game of politicians, not the general public”. That is not a stupid statement but that is a lame statement. Indeed a very lame one.  Even someone who has no interest on Malaysian politics will know BERSIH is all about the general public and it is a civil movement. This kind of stupid statements is good enough for PAS to sack him. He even dares to say this is the game of politicians. Mr. Nasharudin, I beg to differ – the general public has lost faith on politicians like you long ago. This is why we have the civil movements like Bersih and its coalition NGO’s fighting for this country and its future.

If a person like Datuk Ambiga who stand by her principles not qualified to lead BERSIH, then too bad that many leaders in this nation should be sacked or hanged for their hypocrisy and being a Munafik.  We see this lot lately. Anyone who speaks his or her mind with common sense on general humanity cause get shunned and lambasted.  At the same time bigots and people with no whatsoever credibility can form NGO with a name of TIBAI gets front page coverage. Such an irony isn’t.

My only wish for this Saturday will be not to come face to face with you Mr.Nasharudin.  In fact I would be happier if ‘munafik’ like you do not turn up in Dataran come Saturday.

Gross Stupidity might be a good nonpolitical reason for you to march!

I will join the Bersih 3.0 – because I can’t stand the gross stupidity that crippling the entire nation. Honestly, as much as I agree stupidity have no limit – I can’t take this absurdity which been feed to us on high doses on daily basis. Day in day out the events unfolding in Malaysia makes you sick and drives you insane.  With all the transformation programs and what not – I believe we are on full speed on very wrong direction. Almost every institution in this country is failing. Religious bigotry is on the peak. Most MP’s if not all busy politicking rather than working. Corruption is nothing but a norm. Priority list is something unfamiliar in our daily life in Malaysia. Common sense is not so common anymore.

What irks me the most lately are the amount of stupidity and bigotry.

The latest hype about declining a permit for Singapore Ballet group to perform – is just absurd. The reason given is indecent costumes. Ballet costumes deemed indecent? Are you joking? I will not buy that reason simply because it’s insane to agree ballet costumes can poke your eye! Assuming it does, how do we justify the swimsuit then? A gymnast who will be performing in coming Olympics, are we going to sensor all female categories of Gymnastic? Perhaps we should censor all female sports from being broadcasted then. When countries like Saudi who will send female athletes to participate in Olympics – we are banning ballet costumes. We have banned books, movies, t-shirts, yoga and what not. Can we ban idiots who can’t even speak or write English from standing for election?

If Ibrahim Ali is toning down, worry not, we have a new champion. Another son of Ali. Hasan Ali. His stunts accusing Christians proselytizing Muslims is just too much to bear. A religious teachers forum to discuss Christianity threats is a proof how much insecure we are. But the fact is only idiots like Hasan Ali thinks Muslims in this country are insecure. Furthermore – I am sick and tired of the reason they have been giving – to avoid Malaysian young Muslims from being confused. The only thing I am confused is – how did you pass your exams?

I have written on this subject many times. Just what is our problem with Israel? To the extend we have Jew bashing Friday sermons. How pathetic is that? We have elected MP’s and paying their salaries with our tax and they are busying arguing on Israel.  Don’t you all think we have more pressing issues to deal with? Stop making Israel and the Jews as a scapegoat for our political plays. Seriously – please move on or find something new to bash.

Knowing the election is around the corner – day by day we see our Parliament turns into a pig farm. The way things going in there will make amaze even a school kid. No civility, no respect to each other, shout to win publicity, scream to get attention, mock to make one look like a clown. If this is the state of Parliament then I wonder how comical the cabinet meeting must be. If the comedy episodes of the parliament are not good enough – we have the DPM cum Education Minister coming out and giving statement saying our education system are better than United States, Britain and Germany. To be frank when you read such statement you are stunned. Unsure if one should cry or burst out laughing. If you laugh then remember this is our DPM that you are laughing at. Last weekend while having dinner with couple of friends – we been served by a part time waitress who just finished her SPM. She scored straight 9A’s.  And guess what? She never heard anything on NFC. When my friend asked her if she knows who Shahrizat is, she went blank. We stopped our self from asking if she knows who the PM of the country is because we do not want to lose the appetite.

The list can go on with me discussing the crime rates, economy which nose diving, poor quality of undergraduate’s, high level corporate deals (or  scams) and etc. The point here is – this is a beautiful nation with amazing loving citizens. We are blessed with so much of nature and talented people. Unfortunately, politicians from both sides taking this country down with not only corruption but also their stupidity. Pure gross stupidity. Let’s stop that. Let’s have fair and clean election thus we can vote people with principle and integrity into the public office. Let’s clean this mess once and for all

Malaysians will have another day to deal with our MP’s obsession with Israel, Zionist as well as the Jews in general.

This times our opposition MP’s takes the center stage. Apparently they are preparing to table a motion seeking legalization that will end all direct and indirect dealing with Jewish state.

Today, group of MP’s from Pakatan Rakyat hold a press conference with regards to this proposed motion. The utter garbage which came out of the mouth of our oppositions MP’s can be read here; http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2012/03/26/have-laws-to-ban-all-ties-with-israel/

Much respected Malaysian scholar who based in Singapore Dr.Farish Noor have written very well to counter our opposition MP’s idea. You can read his excellent piece here;

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/sideviews/article/trading-in-populism-instead-of-common-sense-farish-a.-noor/

Please allow me to share my two cents worth on this very appealing Jews Bashing in our beloved country.

  1. Just how many of us (or even the MP’s) knows how to differentiate between ISRAEL, ZIONIST and the JEWS?
  2. How many Jews have Malaysians have met in their life?  I bet at least 50% of Malaysian populations have never met a single Jew in their whole life?
  3. Just how much we know the history of this Palestine-Israel conflict? Have anyone read the Balfour Declaration.
  4. Just what is our problem with Israel? The Zionist oppression of Palestinians? Get this right. Not all Jews in favor of this oppression.  I personally knew quite number of them.
  5. We have NO diplomatic ties with Israel. Perfect. Shut up and move on. Leave them alone. None of them interfering with our daily life. We have enough of Perkasa, Rela, Jati, Jasa and what not to deal with. Oh yeah. Our MP’s from both sides give us enough headache and/or comedy.
  6. Enlighten me please. Just on what basis we hate them so much? Because they oppress our Muslim brother and sisters in Palestine? What about Syria then? Let’s not even go into Islamic oppression in most part of African continent?
  7. If our sentiment on Israel is so powerful, why then we bow to pressure from United States to follow suit with Sanction on Iran. The whole wide world knows this round of sanction is heavily lobbied by Israel.
  8. This indirectly shows we support Israel? Don’t we? Why we are not standing up for our ‘brother and sisters in Iran? Rude awakening huh? Let me tell you more – there are Israelis (our most hated Jewish ‘brothers’) who are very much against any possible military action against Iran.
  9. Why Wisma Putra shows very little if not no interest at all on this conflict on Iran? Anyway can someone tell me where our Foreign Minister is? Does he have any interest on any of this subject matter?
  10. By the way can someone tell why KDN banned the movie Munich by Steven Spielberg? How many of us know the tragedy of Munich Olympics in 1972?

I would strongly suggest our MP’s indulge their obsessions on more productive subject matters such as national economy, state welfare, crime rate, education reformation, political maturity and also corruption.

By the way, NDS the company I work for – no longer a Jewish firm. NDS has been bought over by Cisco.

MARCH 14 — One of the prolonged illnesses, which afflicts Malaysian politics, is ministers coming out with stupid if not absurd statements. Usually it is followed by a sudden flip flop.

Today, we have our Tourism Minister saying foreigners are shunning the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme, because they do not perceive the country to be peaceful and stable. Bernama reported Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen blaming recent street demonstrations for hindering promotional efforts for MM2H. She even said that “this is the key barrier preventing foreigners from staying in Malaysia for long period.”

I have a question for her. When did we launch the MM2H programme and since then how many street demos have we seen in Malaysia? Just because she is running out of ideas to explain her ministry’s failures she should not assume Malaysians will just accept her idiotic answers. An SPM student would be able to cook up more concrete reasons than her. Or perhaps this MM2H was a failure from day one.

Just in case she is unaware of them (she is busy promoting Malaysia), let me give her some of the possible reasons why foreigners are not showing interest in MM2H.

Malaysia is NOT SAFE. Read about Nurul Nadirah who went missing, only for her charred remains to be found a couple of days later? This is not the first time we have found a missing toddler’s remains in a gruesome condition.

The Malaysian Government acts with NO SENSE. Grammy winners’ concerts get cancelled at the eleventh hour. Why? She had an offensive tattoo? To whom? And after all that it turned out not to be a real tattoo at all. Any official apology for those who bought tickets and were not offended by the tattoo? Let’s not go into the number of movies, books, T-shirts that we have banned. We even censor song lyrics and we DID censor a certain phrase that appeared in The Economist.

Bad Traffic System — We have a SMART tunnel which is not so SMART. I can’t recall if it’s been SMART from day one. A two-hour heavy downpour in downtown KL is enough to bring the entire city to gridlock.

A corrupt and inefficient Public Service — Do I need to elaborate further?

We are ranked 45th on the Global Cities Competitiveness Report and 60th on the Worldwide Corruption Perceptions index. The Little Red Dot by comparison ranked third and fifth place respectively.

The list goes on but my point here is stop giving us stupid answers.

By the way, some time back in January our PM boasted Malaysia has the “best package” as a country, just go here

to read about it.

I am sad that even this is not helping Dr Ng promote the nation. Sigh!

Why would the religious scholars need to sit down and discuss anything at all when the DPM consider them as small fry? It’s obvious DPM, Nazri Aziz, Ibrahim Ali et al knows best about everything since there are the decision makers. The Perak Fatwa Council are much more efficient than any other state fatwa council in the country (or even the National Fatwa Council itself) because the delivered the Fatwa on Inter Faith council using their vending machine (quote from ART-Harun). Is this means all other states are less Islamic then Perak? Perhaps Jakim still busy preparing for National version of the Fatwa which will not be followed by any state.

Adding an icing on top the cake, Nazri Aziz gives another lame statement again. Apparently ‘small fry’ statement by his idiotic boss is to protect the proposed Inter Faith Council and not to insult. This reminds me of arresting the journalist under ISA for her ‘own safety’. But seriously Nazri, do you think everyone in this country that stupid? Anyone who awarded you the law degree must be thinking of commit suicide.

I am not sure if the establishment of Inter Faith Council is a political gimmick but it gives hope.  For once we can have learned and respected scholars sit and discuss matters in civilized manner. Build a hope for some really substance than mere flare. An intellectual discussion for better Malaysia in future. It will be sad to see another round of attacks on Surau’s, Churches or any Worship Houses. Why are we so afraid of discussions? Why are we so afraid to talk openly? Please don’t give me the sh*t Muslims can be confused with all this. JAKIM, or whatever J – it is your responsibility to educate people not to contain them from learning.

Stop treating the public like morons. Yes, many of you morons still sitting in there talking cock but it all will end soon.  People will put a stop to all this nonsense sooner than you guys think.  And for God Sake, please wasting taxpayer’s money.

As much as I try to restrain myself from writing on socio politics of 1Bolehland I still fail miserably. The fact is the country run by these ******** politicians.

Apparently now everyone talking about brain drain in Bolehland because opposition controlled state of Penang has turn down/could not guarantee terms with a potential multinational investor. The term is about supplying and providing X number of E&E engineers as a work force.

OK, we can’t guarantee X number of engineers – but why don’t you offer some other incentives to lure them in. I mean incentives like tax rebates, discounted utilities and power as an exchange for the ‘potential investor’ to hire fresh graduates and train them in house? I am sorry if I am not a qualified economist to give opinion but I guess if even PM cum Finance Minister can have blunder on National GDP figure, surely I can be forgiven as well.

Quoted from Malaysian Insider this Gerakan economic bureau head Wan Sun Keong has this to say: “Each year, our public and private universities produce no fewer than 6,000 engineering graduates, based on my own unofficial estimates,” Let me ask you this: Out of this unofficial (I hope the official figure is less than this) 6K engineering graduates how many posses good command of English? How many of them are motivated to be an engineer for the passion not for the pay? How many of them are willing to work extra mile to be selected for the job?

We can’t even build a safe bridge for student to cross river till it cost 3 innocent young lives and you are talking about mass production of ENGINEERS from local institution. Sigh.

The brain drain syndrome is not exclusive to Malaysia. It is all over the world. People tend to migrate for better life, better pay, better tax system, better education system, better growth prospect and many more subjects which is purely subjective including better supply of porn magazines and satellite channels.

 We are still busy and tied up with utter nonsense. Arresting religious preachers for No –License preaching, caning beer drinking female Muslim, cheap skate racial and religious debates,  no ending political mess inter and intra parties, Flip Flop and U Turns on all public policies, unimaginable corruption and idiotic personalities as our law makers.

Very little attention given on Human Capitals, Education System (U Turn policies not considered as an attention), Continuous Education/Learning Programs, R & D and so forth. 

Rejuvenate the economic, improve the education system (stimulate them to THINK  forcing them memorize), stop all this nonsense sensitivity issues on vernacular education and Bahasa Rasmi bulls, get rid of race quota based enrolments,  improve the Enforcements & Judicial System to provide safer living for the citizens.

Fix the house before invite them in.

  1. Nope. I am not talking about 3D Television. I am still struggling with HDTV, IPTV, Mobile TV and what not. I will not talk about 3D Television or its standards. I am talking about 3 DECADES of my life.
  2. I am old huh? 30 years old. Realistically speaking I am about to complete half of my life. I wonder how would it be if Zairul Azwan still alive? I remember I dig the grave to bury him with my own hands 12 years ago.
  3. The image of him always reminds me how lucky I am to be still breath and experience the gift of life from Allah swt.
  4. I am thankful to him for the moments Allah swt has granted me to feel, taste and enjoy the bliss of being his servant, a son, a husband, a father, a friend, a colleague, an employee and by being a human itself.
  5. I lost not only Zairul in my life but many other loved ones. What it is when we lost someone? We unable to share the love with them anymore. They are not there anymore for us and with us.
  6. The irony is, at times we tend not to share the love with those around us. Pathetic huh? Poor me.
  7.  In this 30 years, I have learned ‘life goes on’ no matter what. There is no point to sit down and weep about anything. Learn from our mistakes. Learn from others mistakes and don’t afraid to fail.
  8. I still believe I am in the process of growing. I don’t mean growing like how Ihsan does but in other perspective. I always believe you’ll only stop growing when you stop learning.
  9. I have my weaknesses and my shortfalls. I shall thrive to continue improve myself and get rid of those weaknesses.
  10. I thank each and every one of you who have made my life meaningful. Mostly, I thank HIM who might allow me to breathe on the day I turn 30.
  11. p/s – Happy Birthday Ina.

 

Thankful for being blessed. Bahrain – 5th November 2009.
