More Updates On Anwar Saga From The Rumour Mills

" 8.0 Apparently, Anwar knows that Saiful is a mole for UMNO. But Anwar wanted to use Saiful Bukhari to feed UMNO with deceiving information. And apparently, Anwar thinks that his plan has worked well, until the sodomy report that is. That is why pictures of Saiful with UMNO leaders were so quickly exposed to the public.

9.0 Saiful, felt that he's being used by Anwar and feeling like he has been made a fool out of, decided to act in this way. He wants to prove to Anwar that he is not that easy to be duped.

10.0 Apparently, Saiful has been scolded for feeding bad intel to UMNO. So, he has to redeem himself in this way."

As we all know in Malaysia's politics, the rumors we hear are more credible than what is officially reported in the papers. I've been bombarded with so many messages and i feel i'd like to share them with you. I also like to thank those whom has provided me with these information.

1.0 It seems many UMNO leaders and BN leaders are caught by surprise. They never expected such thing to happen to Anwar at all. It seems that the entire operation has been planned and carried out in total secrecy even from most of UMNO leaders. That's why now you see many UMNO leaders are being as quiet as a church mouse on this particular issue.

2.0 It's also reported to me that 80% of UMNO leaders disagree with this particular move. They think it's stupid and it has been a failure the first time around. Many of UMNO leaders stil cannot forget the bitterness of having to faced the Malay people the first time ANwar got accused of sodomy. UMNO leaders were treated like lepers and they remembered not being able to sleep at night for fear of their lives and their families life. They also remembered how even their closest family would cancel invitations of them to weddings and family functions. In fact, they didn't enjoy very much being a leper.

3.0 Ezam Mat Nor has been sending SMS all around denying any involvement. But, another source tells me that it was Ezam who brought Saiful Bukhari to see Najib Tun Razak. It seems that Ezam has a mole in his "band of misfits". Ezam's plan to do a statutory declaration is leaked to the public and now he may have to cancel it.

4.0 Also, he saw from the initial reactions, this particular bandwagon is doomed to fail. So, his plan to accuse Anwar publicly and to support this move had to be shelved. It would mean political suicide for him and his group regardless, especially when majority of UMNO leaders disagree with this move.

5.0 Apparently, UMNO has learnt that only about 6% of Malays believes Anwar is guilty of sodomizing Saiful Bukhari. Which means that only UMNO die hards and hardcores buys this "crap". The rest of Malaysians who still maintains their sanity could not swallow the story of a 61 year old man who had undergone a spine operation can "violate" a 23 healthy boy? It just doesn't compute.

6.0 Many UMNO MP's who was atas pagar now are inclined to join PR. The recent incident only makes UMNO unpopular among rural Malays, which is UMNO's last bastion of support. The urban voters are gonner for UMNO and BN due to the recent oil spike. The Anwar accusation of sodomy will destroy UMNO support amng kampung people.

7.0 And yes, the rumor about Anwar being a target of assasination is also credible. But, it is a last option and will only be invoked when it's really necessary

8.0 Apparently, Anwar knows that Saiful is a mole for UMNO. But Anwar wanted to use Saiful Bukhari to feed UMNO with deceiving information. And apparently, Anwar thinks that his plan has worked well, until the sodomy report that is.

9.0 Saiful, felt that he's being used by Anwar and feeling like he has been made a fool out of, decided to act in this way. He wants to prove to Anwar that he is not that easy to be duped.

10.0 Apparently, Saiful has been scolded for feeding bad intel to UMNO. So, he has to redeem himself in this way.

11.0 At the location and time that Saiful Bukhari mentions in his police report, Anwar was really there. But he was in a meeting with 4 BN MPs and the nature of the meeting is secret. And, the meeting was not even logged in Anwar's diary because of it's secrecy but Saiful got to know about it. So Saiful is taking a chance since he knows Anwar will not expose his meeting with the BN MPs.

But, Anwar has already announced 4 MPs will be joining PR apparently to scare Saiful and his UMNO sponsors.

12.0 Among diehard Anwar haters in UMNO, they are saying that the evidence they have this time around will put Anwar away forever.

13.0 The Turkish Government is even willing to give Anwar asylum status, should Anwar requires it.

14.0 Turkish embassy was willing to risk diplomatic crisis and continue providing Anwar shelter, but Anwar refuse and told Turkish Embassy that he doesn't want Turkey to have a diplomatic crisis with Malaysia

15.0 Anwar was kept awake all night at the Turkish embassy because they kept serving him Turkish coffee. Apparently, it's one of the best brew in the world.

Isn’t Saiful Bukhari Physically Stronger than Anwar?


"So, my question is: How a 23 year Saiful Bukhari, healthy and strong, can allow himself to be sodomized by an old man, who had once undergone a spine operation and unable to exert himself physically as like anyone of his age?

Saiful Bukhari should be able to overpower Anwar Ibrahim and prevent himself from being sodomized."


I had a look at Saiful’s various pictures, and we all know that Anwar Ibrahim is :

  1. Old
  2. Had an operation done on his spine
  3. As a result, not able to be as physical as his age would permit
  4. I don’t think Anwar’s physical condition allows him to play golf.
  5. I think Anwar Ibrahim is as tall as Mostafa Mohammad, like in the picture.

So, my question is: How can a 23 year Saiful Bukhari, healthy and strong, can allow himself t be sodomized by an old man, who had once undergone a spine operation and unable to exert himself physically as anyone of his age?

Saiful Bukhari should be able to overpower Anwar Ibrahim and prevent himself from being sodomized.

Saiful claimed that he was sodomized in a condo in Damansara. The other question that entails is how was he dragged to the condominium assuming the sodomy did take place? Ok, maybe he was deceived into going there.

The next question we can ask is, how did he get himself sodomized when he is physically stronger than Anwar Ibrahim. He can easily push Anwar aside and run away. He can also hurt Anwar physically and lodge a police report there and then?

The fact that Saiful Bukhari is the one lodging the police report indicates that Saiful doesn’t consent to the act of “sodomy”. In short, Saiful was forcefully “violated”. And Anwar had forced upon Saiful without his willingness.

Saiful seems to be very connected. It is not easy to have pictures taken with several UMNO leaders unless you’re someone close to the party heirachy. Or at least you’re someone known to people who are in the circle of UMNO leaders. I mean, besides being UMNO leaders, they are also government officials, and there are protocols and rules to be followed before one can be in close proximity with these leaders.

In short, one will have to be connected to be able to have their pictures taken with UMNO leaders like Saiful Bukhari did.

I blame Anwar Ibrahim for not running a background check on people he appoints as special aides. I mean, it’s ok to have them work as normal worker but to appoint someone you don’t really know as an aide, is an act of carelessness, if u ask me.

Nevertheless, it’s still doesn’t mean that Anwar Ibrahim is guilty of the charges, only guilty for not being careful.

And as a reminder to Muslims reading this article. In Shariah, to accuse someone of fornication (or sodomy) without the presence of 4 credible witnesses is a GRAVE SIN. The ruling on this is unanimous on all scholars of Islam. There is no difference of opinion. IT IS IJMA’.

Whether Anwar did it or not is not an issue. Muslims must adhere to the rule and keep quiet. Accusing others of fornication is also a grave sin.

Ezam Mat Nor dan Kawan2 Akan Bersumpah Bahawa Anwar Meliwat

"Mereka juga akan mengaku mempunyai bukti video adegan Anwar Ibrahim melakukan perbuatan meliwat dengan beberapa orang lelaki. Cumanya, mereka tidak akan menunjukkan video tersebut dan hanya akan mendedahkannya di dalam mahkamah. Ezam dan kawan-kawan sekarang ini sedang membuat persiapan rapi dan akan memanggil siding akhbar dalam waktu yang terdekat".

And here is the rest of it


Maklumat terbaru yang saya terima adalah UMNO sedang menyiapkan Ezam dan beberapa orang kawan2nya untuk membuat pengakuan bersumpah bahawa Anwar Ibrahim adalah seorang peliwat dan telah banyak terlibat dalam perbuatan meliwat dan homoseks.

Mereka akan dipamirkan sedikit masa lagi kepada tontontan umum dan mereka juga akan mengaku bahawa mereka telah lama menyimpan rahsia ini. Mereka sengaja tidak mahu mendedahkan rahsia ini kerana mereka ingin menjaga nama baik Anwar Ibrahim dan keluarga mereka.

Mereka juga akan mengaku mempunyai bukti video adegan Anwar Ibrahim melakukan perbuatan meliwat dengan beberapa orang lelaki. Cumanya, mereka tidak akan menunjukkan video tersebut dan hanya akan mendedahkannya di dalam mahkamah. Ezam dan kawan-kawan sekarang ini sedang membuat persiapan rapi dan akan memanggil siding akhbar dalam waktu yang terdekat.

Bersiap-sedialah kita di dalam menghadapi episod terbaru drama para “pembelot” dan “penipu” yang diterajui oleh mereka2 yang kecewa di dalam politik. Nampaknya Ezam setelah lari dari PKR, telah menjadi Pak Sanggup dan balachi kepada Khairy dan UMNO sehingga sanggup menidakkan perkataan beliau dahulu.

Wahai Ezam Mat Nor, rakyat Malaysia masih belum lupa ucapan-ucapan kamu yang membela Anwar Ibrahim semasa Anwar dituduh meliwat dahulu. Kamu masuk kampong keluar kampong menafikan yang Anwar Ibrahim adalah seorang peliwat dan homoseks. Berapa banyak ayat Quran yang kamu baca di dalam mempertahankan maruah Anwar Ibrahim dari difitnah.

Sekarang ini kamu dan bajingan2 kamu dalam keadaan cacing kepanasan. Kamu sudah habis modal. Kamu sudah habis pengaruh. Kamu semua sudah tidak laku umpama ikan kembung yang dah busuk. Seringgit sekilo pun tak laku.

Usaha terakhir untuk me”laku” kan diri2 mereka, terpaksa lah mereka membuat satu perkara yang maha besar, yakni menuduh kembali Anwar Ibrahim meliwat. Walaupun ianya bermakna mereka memurahkan diri mereka ke tahap di bawah “pelacur” namun mereka tidak kesah.

Pada hakikatnya, Ezam dan kawan-kawan adalah mereka yang digelar sebagai “political whores” atapun “pelacur politik”. Mereka menjual maruah hanya kerana mereka ingin memanjat tangga politik.

Sudah kita tengok bagaimana Saiful Bahari ini sebenarnya seorang yang biasa turun naik tangga pejabat Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Perdana Menteri. Di zaman harga barang mahal seperti sekarang dan kerja semakin susah untuk didapati, tambahan pula Saiful Bahari ini gagal untuk menyempurnakan pembelajaran beliau di UNITEN, inilah satu-satu nya cara yang terbaik untuk mendapat “durian runtuh”. Bayangkan berapa banyak wang yang beliau boleh buat.

Kita tahu bagaimana Azizan yang sanggup mengaku diliwat Anwar sekarang ini hidup mewah. Kita tahu pencetak buku 50 dalil keluar dari bankrupsi dsbnya. Ini adalah jalan yang paling mudah untuk membuat wang, terutama dalam keadaan UMNO dan BN semakin lemah dan tidak bermaya.

Marilah kita ingat kembali pelajaran dari Ilmu Feqah dalam Bab Jenayah yang menyatakan bahawa di dalam menuduh zina ke atas seseorang, hendaklah di bawa 4 orang saksi yang adil. Sekiranya tiada, maka hokum Qazaf harus dikenakan ke atas si penuduh.

Ibnu Qayyim dalam kitab beliau yang bertajuk “AL Kabair” yang bermaksud “Dosa Dosa Besar” menyatakan bahawa menidih seseorang berzina tanpa bukti adalah tindakan dosa besar yang amat nyata.

Marilah kita semua supaya jangan mengikut jejak langkah kaum fasiq ini kerana dosa menuduh sebegini adalah tersangat besar dan tersangat jijik di sisi Allah SWT. Marilah kita berdoa kepada Allah SWT semoga Allah SWT mengagalkan perancangan mereka ini.

BN is Desperate. Anwar is Close to his Goal

"I believe on the ground, people are leaving UMNO in droves, especially in states where UMNO lost. Even where I live, my sources tell me that local UMNO are having problems trying to get their members to come to meetings and Annual Meetings at Branch and Division level.

So, a serious step is needed to prevent the exodus from bleeding UMNO more. And I expect the MSM will try to play down the issue, cause it’s only aimed for the consumption of UMNO members. Only UMNO members are stupid enough to believe that Anwar Ibrahim is a sodomizer. But I might be wrong."

A police report has recently been lodged against Anwar Ibrahim alledging him sodomizing one of his aide according the Malaysiakini report: Aide alleges sodomy: Report lodged..

To think that the power that be should realized that using the same trick again might not work especially when the same trick didn’t work the first time. I mean, being a Malay, it was difficult to find one Malay that actually believed Anwar is a sodomizer, the first time around. People who do believe in the story usually decides to keep their opinion to themselves. I mean for a man who has more than 8 children like Anwar, it’s kindda hard to convince people that he has a taste for anal sex.

To me this presents an opportunity for Anwar to rally the Malay ground. In 2008, the Chinese and Indians rallied behind Pakatan Rakyat, while Malays predominantly went to Barisan Nasional. If this story breaks out and Anwar is once again smeared all over the Main Stream Media (MSM), it may present an opportunity for PR to rally the Malays.

That also explains why Utusan Malaysia does not mention Anwar Ibrahim’s name in their report on this incident: Liwat: Laporan polis terhadap pemimpin politik. It seems the negative coverage of Anwar Ibrahim 4 days before 2008 elections actually increased Anwar Ibrahim’s support level among the Malays by 4-5%, enough to sweep the carpet under BN’s feet in several states.

It may also mean that Anwar is close to his goal of replacing Barisan Nasional with a new government. So, out of desperation Anwar Ibrahim must be destroyed credibility wise. So, such maneuver is adopted.

But, to me I think the move is so lame. It is so unoriginal and of course, it was done before and failed miserably. We need to question why adopt the same failed strategy? That is a big question that needs to be answered.

I believe such move is adopted to prevent UMNO MP’s from jumping. They probably know that some UMNO MP’s are interested in joining Pakatan Rakyat. And since only UMNO members believe that Anwar Ibrahim actually committed sodomy, then by playing this game, they hope they can prevent an exodus of UMNO members and leaders into Pakatan Rakyat.

I believe on the ground, people are leaving UMNO in droves, especially in states where UMNO lost. Even where I live, my sources tell me that local UMNO are having problems trying to get their members to come to meetings and Annual Meetings at Branch and Division level.

So, a serious step is needed to prevent the exodus from bleeding UMNO more. And I expect the MSM will try to play down the issue, cause it’s only aimed for the consumption of UMNO members. Only UMNO members are stupid enough to believe that Anwar Ibrahim is a sodomizer. But I might be wrong.

Also, we need to remember that the economy is getting bad. And as I have exposed in my earlier articleWARNING: Oil Will Go to RM3.20 by End Of Year”, UMNO is in a serious bind.

With the next hike, more Malays will join Pakatan Rakyat’s fold. More Malays will leave Barisan Nasional and UMNO. The country’s finance is in shambles. They cannot sustain the current rate of subsidy anymore. UMNO will be forced to reduce subsidy even more.

So, the next best thing is to villify the Prime Minister in Waiting, Anwar Ibrahim. That might buy them time to regain public confidence.

But time is running out. Support level on Pakatan Rakyat among Chinese and Indian has stayed the same as before 2004. In fact, they’ve grown. The Malays are reeling from the effects of inflation. Only rural Malays are still loyal to UMNO. And even then the numbers are dwindling especially in the states where Pakatan Rakyat rules.

Yes, I believe this is an act of desperation on the part of UMNO and the ruling elites. People are leaving them in droves. And their numbers are getting smaller and smaller. Support from Non Muslims electorate are tanking despite everything that Wong Chun Wai and his miserable newspaper is doing. Malays are slowly but surely leaving UMNO and Barisan Nasional.

UMNO itself is in shambles. It’s infighting is beyond imagination. It’s killing itself from the inside. So, the next best thing is to find a way to unite UMNO. That is to accuse Anwar Ibrahim of sodomy.

It’s that simple

WARNING: Oil Will Go to RM3.20 by End Of Year


"In these times, it’s always a good idea to prepare for the worse and not trust the government’s words at all."

I really hope I am wrong, but this information is just too hard for me not to share with people. Apparently, with price of oil increasing in the international market, the subsidy supported by the government increases more and more.

And apparently, the state of our country’s finances is getting from bad to worse. At least that’s what my source in the MOF are telling me. There is no way the government can sustain the subsidy at this rate by the year end, should the rise in International Oil keep on increasing. Years and years of corruption have began to take it's toll on Malaysia's finances.

At this rate, the government will not be able to sustain the subsidy without widening the budget deficit. It’s already tanking at 3% and should the oil subsidy be maintained by year end, our budget deficit might ballon up to 6-7% of GDP, at least that’s what my source is telling me.

I think the exact words used by my source were “the country is going to the dogs”.

So, my friends, I wish I am proven wrong on this one. And I know Pak Lah and Najib has given their utmost assurance that oil prices will not be increased at all this year, but we know how good these people are at keeping promises.

Also, apart from Pak Lah and the government, the Bank Negara also has a tradition of issuing “credible” statements. My friends in Bank Negara tells me that very few in Bank Negara actually believes in the data published by Bank Negara. In these times, especially the the inflation rates published by Bank Neagara are NOT to be trusted. I think Zeti, our Bank Negara governor, is trained to issue crap statements with a straight face.

In these times, it’s always a good idea to prepare for the worse and not trust the government’s words at all. For instance, I’d like to propose u go to your local grocery store (sundry store as he British calls it) and hedge your food prices. Have this type of conversation with the owner and sign a document. Tell him:

You : Allow Mamak, sekarang saya mahu bayar deposit, tapi saya mahu ini harga barang makan mcm milo semua aaa takda ubah sampai taun depan. Saya aa sini jugak beli takda tempat lain tapi itu harga aaa tarak buleh naik. Buleh ka mamak?

I say now’s the time to take out your deposit and hedge everything: rice, sugar, milo, coffee, tea, mineral water etc. I know some of the items above a controlled item, but it seems the real prices always more than the government controlled price.

You can also go to your barber and hedge prices of haircuts, your school bus operator, your tution center for your kids, your motor oil change mechanic, your mechanic for car maintenance. Hell, why don’t you try hedging with your Nasi Campur and your Roti Canai Kedai Mamak. For all u know they might agree and u could save a bundle in the future.

The point is, try to hedge as much as possible. Your offer is that you will keep coming back to them without fail provided they can offer you the same price you’re enjoying now until the end of the year.

People who says that this idea is weird should ask Southwest Airlines. They’re flying high right now because their executives are forward thinking and hedge everything before the rise in oil prices.

In addition, I think we also need to make several adjustments now before the real storm starts to hit. Steps like:

  1. Renegotiate your loan or refinance your housing loans for a lower rate. Or change to an Islamic Loan because the rate is fixed. There’s no telling what will happen to our interest rate in these coming months.
  2. Install an NGV system into your car. For more information refer to my previous article “Experience Of Having NGV in the Car.”. I also have a CBOX open in this blog for anyone having questions on NGV and try to answer them the best I can
  3. STOP USING YOUR CREDIT CARD. Pay off your credit card completely. Get into one of those programs that allow you to pay your credit card debt at a reduced rate or a longer length or both.
  4. Reduce your debt AS LOW AS YOU CAN. The best is for you to be left with just one debt, your house.
  5. Hedge everything you can. Don’t get yourself subjected to market prices.
  6. Migrate to Taleban Country. Check it out “Life in Taleban Country pt 3”. Gasoline is cheap (SR0.68 per liter = RM 0.50). All businesses are thriving here.
  7. For Muslims, learn to fast because u may need to cut down on luxuries like lunch and breakfast. Unless you’ve already hedged your prices with your local mamak store. (For Non Muslims, why don’t u try fasting. It’s not a coercion, but it will save you money.)
  8. Hedging is also good if you’re a business owner. Also, cut cost wherever you can. Print on used paper, buy low grade coffee or tea, use powdered tea instead of tea bags, stuffs like that. Allocate one whole day just for brainstroming session on effective cost cutting measures.
  9. The consumer spending rate WILL GO TO HELL. And so will your business if you're not prepared from now.

Even in the States, they’re already predicting a USD6 per gallon scenario by year end and USD7 per gallon by end of next year. So, in the case of Malaysia, it’s not going to be far.

But one thing for sure, the cronies and UMNOPutras are IMMUNE to these inflationary pressures because they can always turn to government money to ease their burden. We, the people have not such luxury and we are to survive whichever way we can. Remember, our export level is maintained or even improved. Our GDP are not effected by these changes of oil prices. So, these profits must go somewhere? Right?

Lastly, the best way to do something about this is to remove Barisan Nasional completely. Corruption is taking it’s toll on the people. And the toll with keep rising. People will keep on suffering, while the cronies and connected richer.

I can only write and proposed. I pray to God that the Malaysians are protected from harm due to inflationary pressures.

Ezam Mat Nor, Kamu Menipu Rupanya


Tapi sepatutnya, kita tak usah "kaget" kata orang seberang. Oleh kerana UMNO ni parti penipu, maka sapa masuk UMNO, otomatik terjangkit penyakit menipu ni.

Ezam cuma mengikut resmi kerbau, bila masuk kandang kerbau, dia pun menguak. Kalau dia masuk kandang kambing, dia mengembek. Hah, eloklah Ezam jadilah kamu kerbau UMNO, kambing UMNO. Duduk lah kamu berkubang dalam lumpur dan tahi UMNO.

Kalau dahulu Ezam Mat Nor sanggup merengkok dalam penjara Kajang semata-mata kerana mempertahankan kebenaran menuduh makcik Fidah korupsi, skrg ni lepas menipu mcm ni, tak tau lah nak duduk dalam penjara apa lagi, mungkin rumah pasung kat ulu mana2 kot?


Wahh, nampaknya semenjak Ezam Mat Nor menyertai UMNO ni, berubah perangai beliau dengan begitu drastik sekali. Baru tak sampai sebulan, Ezam Mat Nor telah menjadi seorang penipu.

Al maklumlah, Ezam sekarang ni dah ada boss baru. Jadi, kenalah bodek boss baru dia. Tapi nak bodek pun biarlah berpada-pada. Tengok-tengoklah sikit bila menuduh.

Dan sekarang terbukti, Ezam terlebeh mengampu sampai menipu. Orang tua2 kata, terlajak perahu boleh undur, terlajak bas, kenalah ambik teksi. Terlajak kapalterbang, jadilah 911.

Tapi sepatutnya, kita tak usah "kaget" kata orang seberang. Oleh kerana UMNO ni parti penipu, maka sapa masuk UMNO, otomatik terjangkit penyakit menipu ni.

Ezam cuma mengikut resmi kerbau dan kambing. Bila masuk kandang kerbau, dia pun menguak.Bila dia masuk kandang kambing, dia mengembek. Hah, eloklah Ezam jadilah kamu kerbau UMNO, kambing UMNO. Duduk lah kamu berkubang dalam lumpur dan tahi UMNO.

Kalau dahulu Ezam Mat Nor sanggup merengkok dalam penjara Kajang semata-mata kerana mempertahankan kebenaran kerana menuduh makcik Fidah korupsi, skrg ni lepas menipu mcm ni, tak tau lah nak duduk dalam penjara mana lagi, mungkin rumah pasung kat ulu mana2 kot? Orang kat penjara pun agaknya menyampah nak tengok muka Ezam.

Dengan kenyataan Abang Rosli yang saya lampirkan dibawah ini, bolehlah kita anggap Ezam seperti jatuh ditimpa pula tangga lepas tu tercium pulak tahi ayam.

Kalaulah Ezam dahulu sabar sedikit lagi, sekarang ni mungkin Ezam dah jadi orang besar dalam Keadilan dan dalam dalam persada politik Malaysia. Bak kata orang tua-tua, berakit-rakit dahulu, berenang-renang ke tepian, bersakit-sakit dahulu, bersenang-senang kemudian. Tapi Ezam tak sabar, alamat jadilah Ezam balachi Khairy Jamaluddin (yang bercita-cita untuk menjadi Ketua Pemuda UMNO Malaysia).

Saya nak cakap, saya kenal Abang Rosli ni. Kalau nak kaya apasal dia tunggu sekarang ni, masa Anwar jadi TPM la dia buleh sapu. Tapi berani dia sapu, kalau tak Anwar Ibrahim potong line, dan Anwar banyak kali potong line family dia. Walaupun famili dia orang meniaga, tapi takda sorang pun yang dapat laba dari kedudukan Anwar Ibrahim sebagai TPM. Kalau tidak cerita diorang ni mestilah dah terkeluar masa Anwar kena pecat dulu.

Akhir sekali, Ezam, kau sekarang ni balachi Khairy Jamaluddin. Kau jangan la terlebeh sangat sampai nanti kau jadi liabiliti. Memang rasmi balachi, bila dah tak berguna, alamat kena terajang siam la masuk tong sampah. Kau tengok la nasib Zahid Mat Arip, Roslan Kassim, Hamda Taha, Hanafiah Man dan mereka-mereka yang seangkatan dengannya. Apa jadi kat diorang ni semua. Semua jadi hampas. UMNO pun serba salah dengan diorang ni. Nak ditelan mati mak, nak dluah mati bapak dibuatnya UMNO.

Yang lagi kelakar, masa PRU 2008, Hamdan Taha dan Zahid Mat Arip telah dihantar khas ke Parlimen Lembah Pantai, kononnya kehadiran mereka akan melemahkan peluang anak Saudara Anwar Ibrahim di dalam memenangi kerusi Lembah Pantai. Kononnya Zahid Mat Arip ada rahsia besar yang akan didedahkan berkenaan Anwar Ibrahim, bapa kepada Nurul Izzah calon Lembah Pantai.

Ruslan Kassim dihurung kesana kesini terutama di Negeri Sembilan tempat Dato' Kamarul. Dulu, masa Keadilan, berapa banyak duit Dato' Kamarul habis tolong si Ruslan ni. Masa 2008, Roslan yang sama jugak yang datang menista Dato Kamarul di Parlimen Teluk Kemang, tempat Ruslan pernah bertanding dulu.

Tapi apakan daya, sekali air bah, sekali pantai berubah. Sekali puak-puak bajingan bekas KeAdilan ini dihanyutkan air loji penapis najis adanya. Kehadiran Ruslan, Hamdan, Hanafiah, Zahid dan sekutu2 TIDAK MEMBERI KESAN. Semua kawasan puak2 ni berkempen, SEMUA UMNO KALAH TERGULING. Dato Kamarul, Nurul Izzah, Kak Wan menang dengan jayanya dan mereka bersemayam di atas takhta kerusi parlimen mereka bak raja-raja di kayangan. Akibat orang menyampah tengok puak-puak talam dua muka ini, yang dah bercadang nak undi BN pun tak jadi undi.

Kepada Ezam, berentilah menjaja fitnah ke sana ke mari. Hakikatnya, kamu lari dari KeAdilan kerana kamu kalah beradu. Kamu masuk gelanggang, belum habis berlawan kamu dah mengaku kalah. Bak kata pepatah, kalau takut dilambung ombak, jangan berumah di tepi pantai, kalau kail panjang sejengkal, lautan dalam jangan diduga.

Kamu asyik berkata Anwar tak setia dengan perjuangan Melayu. Habis, Pak Lah, Khairy dan sebagainya, bukan ke diorang ni setia pada Singapore? ( Mengikut dakwaan Bekas Perdana Menteri)? Kamu nak kata Anwar Agen Asing, habis Khairy mcmna?

Puak-puak pengacau ni, bak kata arwah direktor Ahmad Nisfu, "Kecik kecik tak nak mampus, dah besar menyusahkan orang". Itulah ibarat yang tepat berkenaan Ezam Mat Nor dan juak-juak beliau semua.

Hakikatnya Ezam, kamu pengecut. Kamu tahu gagasan kamu telah ditolak, lantas kamu lari dari perjuangan dan kamu pergi menjilat ludah kamu semula. Cerita kamu telah masyhur seantero dunia. Semua orang tahu kamu bercadang masuk UMNO sejak lama dahulu, masa 2004 lagi. Pergi berjumpa Dato Aziz Samsuddin, lepas tu bila lobang pecah, kamu fitnah si Lokman Nor Adam. Kesian Lokman Nor Adam jadi mangsa fitnah kamu, Ezam Mat Nor.

Memang bangsa kamu bangsa lidah bercabang, bangsa telunjuk lurus kelingking berkait. Tak boleh dipercayai hatta masa dalam KeAdilan lagi saya dah tahu perangai kamu.

Ingatlah pesananan orang tua-tua: Harimau mati meninggalkan belang, manusia mati meninggalkan nama.

Kepada pembaca sekelian, coretan ini seharusnya menjadi peringatan. Barang yang buruk jadi sempadan, barang yang baik jadi tauladan.

Sekian adanya.

Adik Anwar nafi masuk KDEB
KUALA LUMPUR 27 Jun - Adik kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Rosli, hari ini menafikan beliau pernah dilantik sebagai penasihat syarikat milik kerajaan negeri Selangor, Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Berhad (KDEB).

Menurutnya, dakwaan itu tidak benar sama sekali dan ia dilakukan bertujuan menjatuhkan maruah dan mengaibkan abangnya yang merupakan Penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)

Beliau berkata, bekas Setiausaha Anwar, Mohamad Ezam Mohd. Nor seharusnya mengemukakan bukti mengenai perkara itu terlebih dahulu, sebelum mengeluarkan kenyataan yang kelak akan memakan dirinya sendiri.

''Dia (Mohamad Ezam) jangan lupa bahawa abang saya pernah menjadi majikannya. Justeru, sebelum membuat sebarang tuduhan yang menganiaya orang lain, dia patut fikir dahulu,'' katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia.

Beliau mengulas laporan muka depan Utusan Malaysia hari ini yang mempersoalkan kemungkinan Anwar mengamalkan nepotisme dengan melantik ahli keluarga sebagai penasihat dalam KDEB.

Rosli menegaskan, beliau tidak pernah dilantik secara rasmi sebagai penasihat dalam syarikat tersebut.

Justeru, beliau tidak dapat menjelaskan bagaimana perkara itu kini boleh menjadi isu.

Bagaimanapun, Rosli mengakui, beliau mengenali Presiden KDEB, Datuk Abdul Karim Munisar sejak lebih 20 tahun lalu.

Katanya, sebagai rakan perniagaan, beliau ada memberi nasihat kepada Abdul Karim ketika Presiden KDEB itu berhadapan dengan masalah.

''Saya tidak terlibat atau mempunyai kaitan langsung dengan KDEB dan saya mempunyai syarikat sendiri.

''Sebagai adik kepada seorang yang berpengaruh, tohmahan seperti ini memang tidak dapat dielakkan,'' ujarnya.

Beliau kesal dengan tindakan Mohamad Ezam itu yang sebelum ini pernah menganggap Anwar sekeluarga seperti keluarganya sendiri.

Menurut Rosli, anggapan itu kini telah berubah apabila Mohamad Ezam sanggup menikam 'ahli keluarganya' dari belakang.

PAS, Please Be Wary of Wong Chun Wai(MCA)’s Traps

The message Wong Chun Wai is trying to deliver is: Reject PAS and Pakatan Rakyat and return to MCA/Gerakan and BN, so that u can continue to pay high petrol prices, pay for corruption, pay for high food prices and submit to every whims and fancies of UMNOPUTRAS while you children starve at home. And what are all this sacrifice for? The freedom to wear lipsticks and high heels (which was never banned by MPKB anyways).
(Borrowed from Jedyoong.com, Men enjoying some cold beer at a kopitiam in Jalan Kebun Sultan this afternoon.)
These past few days, we have seen how MCA via their #1 agitator, Wong Chun Wai, have been raising minor and insignificant issues against PAS with the reason of creating feeling of uneasiness and hate among the Chinese and Indian electorate.

They're cheap tricks and it reflects the level of politics Wong Chun Wai operates in. Nothing but stupid and idiotic politics fit for 3rd world country mentality. If only Wong Chun Wai was this vocal against the rise in petrol prices that has effected so many families and businesses. The tragedy that ensue the rise in petrol prices is pale in comparison to the alleged ban on “lipsticks and high heels”. If you ask 100 people to choose between cheaper petrol prices and permission to wear lipsticks and high heels, I am very sure 99 out of 100 will choose the former.

The message Wong Chun Wai is trying to deliver is: Reject PAS and Pakatan Rakyat and return to MCA/Gerakan and BN, so that u can continue to pay high petrol prices, pay for corruption, pay for high food prices and submit to every whims and fancies of UMNOPUTRAS while you children starve at home. And what are all this sacrifice for? The freedom to wear lipsticks and high heels (which was never banned by MPKB anyways).

PAS leaders need to repeatedly highlight several facts that Wong Chun Wai and the MSM prostitute media will never admit to:

a. PAS has a long standing policy of not forcing Islamic practices upon Non-Muslims. It is wrong and against a clear injunction of the Quran. It is also part of the Shariah of Islam. Religious freedom is guaranteed under PAS in line with Article 3 of the country’s constitution. The Quran says:

“002.256
YUSUFALI: Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.
PICKTHAL: There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.
SHAKIR: There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.”

b. PAS is NOT a racist party and does not adopt racist policies in their administration. The biggest example I’d like to cite is Ng Yen Yen, Ketua Wanita MCA. She was once a recipient of Kelantan Government scholarship under the then MB, Dato Asri Haji Muda. I was told, there is even a picture of Ng Yen Yen receiving the money from Dato Asri. Another example is during 13th of May 1969. Dato’ Asri proactively met with all the Penghulu in Kelantan and issued a strict order to allow any harm or hurt befell upon the Chinese of Kelantan. I think the words used were “tidak mahu ada pertumpahan darah di Kelantan ini”.

c. The Islamic injunctions implemented by PAS are those from Shariah and they are injunctions agreed upon by all scholars of Islam. For example, the covering of aurah is not a rule made by PAS or anyone. It is a rule direct from the Al Quran and As Sunnah without dispute.

d. PAS has managed to demonstrate a commendable economic achievement in Kelantan. For example, despite the total encirclement by UMNO/BN, they have managed to lift the poverty level from the poorest to 6th poorest, according to official figures. If Kelantan remained in BN’s hands, it will remain the poorest state in the Federation, like Sabah.

e. All of the sensitive religious issues that had happened before this i.e. body snatchings, razing down of temples etc are the handiwork of UMNO/BN administration. Such things has never happened in PAS states. The latest body snatching incident is now happening in Penang, a DAP state, not PAS.

In short, the issues being raised by Wong Chun Wai and his band of misfits are, at best, minor issues. Wong Chun Wai represents a group of desperate people, at the end of their pitiful rope and are now desperately trying to justify their pitiful existence in the Malaysian political arena.

At the end of the day, Wong Chun Wai should ask, what is the main role of MCA, apart from becoming “kuda tungganggan” of UMNO?

The latest Ninth Malaysian Plan report presented by Pak Lah, says that the income gap between races has improved. I expected this since 2 years ago on the count that people close to Pak Lah has been gobbling up government project and opportunities like a fat man in a doughnut factory.

That’s the reason behind the kissing of Keris and all the racial ranting uttered during several UMNO General Assemblies. All of it was nothing more than a thinly veiled threat against BN component parties to not question the gobbling up of major projects by Malay UMNOPUTRA. That explained the ever rising tensions we saw during the past several years running up to the election in 2008.

Maybe it is best for Wong Chun Wai to discuss matters pertaining to the welfare of the people of Malaysia, rather than discussing about wearing serban or not when riding a motorbike. I mean, discussing the issue of serban only reflects Wong Chun Wai’s inept and immaturity. So we the general public must not be sucked into Wong’s level of immaturity.

On the Serban issue, I just like to share what Jed Yoong had written in her blog :

“I only just saw The Star’s frontpage photo of boys in serbans. Terrible. Look at how innocent the boys were — posing for the photo and smiling. Little did they know that the MCA-owned paper will make fun of their religious beliefs.
The paper
reported today:He (State police chief Senior Asst Commissioner (I) Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi) said the exemption was only for motorcyclists wearing the traditional serban and not other forms of headgear.
“Those wearing other than the strict version of serban will be booked,” he said. I hope the paper and its chief editor will stop such bigoted reports and blog posts. Read my earlier post
here.
I say it again: “Wearing a serban is an individual freedom.” Wong’s behaviour shows no amount of money and power can buy “class”. Trash will always behave like trash”

Although, personally I do not support wearing of serban when riding a motorbike, but I have to agree with Jed Yoong, making an issue out of this is just plain stupid.

Lastly, I call upon PAS to reassure Malaysians once again of PAS’s commitment towards ensuring that Islam is not imposed upon non-muslims and that all are free to practice their faith and beliefs. It’s not difficult for PAS to do that as PAS has already demonstrated it in Kelantan.

Please do not fall to traps sprung by those who are desperate to remain relevant in Malaysia’s political arena.

Pak Lah, Need To Know the Income Gap Among Malays


In closure, I call upon Pak Lah to release the Intra Ethnic GINI Coefficient figures. We need to know whether wealth are properly distributed among the Malays or are they still concentrated among a handful of UMNO Putras. So long as this negative trend continues, the Malays will continue to demand for the continuation of NEP and friction among the races will not improve.

And, I want to say that reduction of income gaps between different ethnic groups, as reported in the Mid Term Review, is hardly impressive. It’s expected, actually, considering the rate of wealth acquisition by the “elites” of UMNO in the last 4 years have even caused serious frictions among component parties of Barisan Nasional.
In other words, such outcome is expected and it’s not even news.

(
Picture Courtesy of Malaysiakini)

RMK9 Mid Term Review report has been released. It was tabled in the Malaysian Parliament by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on the 25th of June 2008.

One of the highlights of Ninth Malaysia Plan, Mid-Term Review is the equity holdings of the Bumiputra. Apparently it is one of Malaysia’s most important economic indicator. It will spell out whether the National Economic Plan (NEP) will continue or be ended.

I, myself, am interested in another economic indicator, called Intra Ethnic GINI Coefficient, for Malays, specifically. What it is, is they are an indicator of how wealth is distributed among the Malays. The figure is between 0 and 1 where 0 indicates there are no gap between the rich and the poor while 1 indicates the rich controls all the wealth. Usually, the figure will be somewhere in between.

The truth is the government has stopped publishing the figure since 1990. This is because Dr Mahathir Muhammad, the PM at that time said:

“The NEP, it must be iterated, was not concerned with making all the bumiputeras earn equally, or share equally, the wealth distributed amongst them. …The intention of the NEP was to create in the bumiputera community the same division of labour and rewards as was found in the non-bumiputera communities, particularly the Chinese. … The equitableness was not to be between individuals, but between communities” (Mahathir Mohamad, 1998, The Way Forward - Vision 2020, A Working Paper Presented at the Malaysian Business Council, Kuala Lumpur pp. 33-34 )

In short, Dr Mahathir, then, has deliberately adopted a policy of not caring what is the income gap within the Malays. What’s important to Mahathir (and UMNO) is the rate of wealth ownership between the races as a whole.

It doesn’t matter if, for instance, 1% of Malays owned 90% of the Malay’s wealth, just as long as the Malays as a whole control’s 33% of the country’s wealth. This is the reason why corruption is rampant among the Malays. If such indicator is looked upon religiously by UMNO, naturally corruption would’ve been abated or at least controlled. This is because serious division of wealth will occur when corruption is not put in check.

For the Chinese and Indian community, how does this effect them? As long as the income gap between the rich and the poor among the Malays remains big, the Malays will continue to demand for the continuation of DEB. By right, NEP is supposed to have ended in 1990. But, because UMNO had failed, and miserably, I might say, it is continued to this day.

A look at whatever data we have shows that the gap between poor and rich Malays shows a widening trend. And considering UMNO did not adopt any new measures from 1990, I am confident that the gap now is bigger than in 1990.

Most Malays is not aware of this fact, but many Malays feel the effect of large income gap. That is why, despite the BN being very popular among the Malays in 2008, an average of 40% Malays voted for Pakatan Rakyat. If you compare the 2008 results with 1986 election results, it shows a jump of about 15% of Malays voting for opposition. In 1986, it is estimated only 25% of the Malay electorate voted for opposition.

In fact, in 2008, it was the high price of commodities that saved BN especially in Negeri Sembilan. The night when election results came out, I was putting special attention to Negeri Sembilan. Seeing that my kampong is Kampung Astana Raja, Rembau, I was also interested in the Rembau result. I regretted not coming back to campaign my family members not to vote for Khairy Jamaluddin.

When all results are finalized, we are 4 seats shy of a minority government in Negeri Sembilan. I got down and analyzed the results of Negeri Sembilan, and discover that seats won by BN are largely seats with predominantly rural electorate which relies on commodities for their economic subsistence, mainly rubber. My third cousin who live in Labu and sells second hand car for a living have been telling me that his business is booming because rubber tappers have started buying cars from him. And this was 2-3 years ago when the price of commodity was lower than in 2008.

So, naturally, the rural electorate is enjoying life because of the commodity bumper crop. But, if it wouldn’t for the rural electorate, Malays would have voted Pakatan Rakyat in the 50% neghborhood. That would have spelt the demise of UMNO and Barisan Nasional.

In closure, I call upon Pak Lah to release the Intra Ethnic GINI Coefficient figures. We need to know whether wealth are properly distributed among the Malays or are they still concentrated among a handful of UMNO Putras. So long as this negative trend continues, the Malays will continue to demand for the continuation of NEP and friction among the races will not improve.

And, I want to say that reduction of income gaps between different ethnic groups, as reported in the Mid Term Review, is hardly impressive. It’s expected, actually, considering the rate of wealth acquisition by the “elites” of UMNO in the last 4 years have even caused serious frictions among component parties of Barisan Nasional.

Even Republicans Are Advocating Cheap Gasoline

As a conclusion, if the Republicans are advocating cheap gasoline, why can't Anwar Ibrahim. Those who criticize Anwar for wanting to lower the gasoline prices, my advice for them is "GO TAKE A HIKE".

Where I am located right now, I have access to the US Armed Forces radio. It is essentially a talk radio and yes, there's no music. It is all talk and despite being so, it contains so many programs. The programs on the radio covers all topics, which includes politics. The good thing about the US Armed Forces radio is that it gives coverage to both side of the political divide in America, the Liberals and the Conservative.

For Conservative programs we have talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura Schwelsinggger. For liberal talk show hosts, we have the Dan Shultz. Of course the hottest political topic right now is, apart from the Presidential election, is the hike in oil prices. Latest report from American Automobile Association says that average gasoline price per gallon has breached the USD 4 mark.

What surprises me is that, on both political divide, the message is the same. There must be an initiative to reduce gasoline prices. It seems that consumer spending is seriously hampered when gasoline prices are high.

When consumer spending falls, so will profits and business confidence suffers too. As a result the country's economy will suffer. Businesses will be closed down, people will be out of work, collection of taxes will also fall, which means government revenues will also suffer.

In short, high gasoline prices is bad news and a solution must be adopted. The Republicans/Conservative adopts a supply side solution, in which they advocate increasing domestic output of crude oil. THe downside is that supply of crude oil in the world is hampered because of Bush's invasion of Iraq. The oil in Iraq remains stagnant and what Bush is doing right now is blaming Saudi Arabia for not boosting production.

The Democrats wants to adopt a demand side solution in which they advocate the adoption of alternative energy. But, this solution is not a simple and short term. It takes a huge investment and will take time to realize. In any case, the people will have to suffer for the next few years before the Democrat solutions can take effect. The Democrats is also pushing for a Greenhouse Emission bill, which will result in gasoline prices going higher. I guess Al Gore's policy is not as popular as we think.

The point is despite the absence of any permenant short term solution, both divide agree that gasoline prices must be lowered. Sad to say, here in Malaysia, the BN government has not come out in strength to support this solution. It's almost like the BN agrees wholeheartedly to the hike in oil prices.

It seems BN do not mind drop in consumer spending due to inflationary pressures. They don't care that this would mean more businesses being closed, more people will be out of job, more children will be denied nutrious food, more parents cannot spend quality time with their children, more marriages will end up in divorces, crime rising and all the problems that entails a drop in economy. Yet, what's weird is that the country's GDP is actually recording a positive growth and no one is prediciting recession anytime soon.

It only means that most of the wealth this country is making goes to a small group of people and the rest of the people are left to die a slow death. And that also explains why the BN refuses to slap a windfall tax on commodity corporations like Petronas, Guthrie, Sime, MMC and many more. These commoditiy corporation ensures easy wealth to a small minority of corrupt UMNOPUTRA.

My argument above is also a slap in the face to certain quarter in the Pakatan Rakyat who supports the removal of oil subsidy, albeit quietly. My question to them is, how does reduction of consumer spending good for Malaysia's ecnonomy and Malaysia's GDP specifically?

Also, despite all of America's economic indicators spiralling downwards, the only indicator that's going up is the salaries of executives of major corporations. It seems, even when these companies are making losses, their salaries kept getting increased. For instance, General Motors. GM has recorded losses, and instead of firing their CEO, he was given a raise. So much for America being a country based on merits. It's only empty rhetoric.

As a conclusion, if the Republicans are advocating cheap gasoline, why can't Anwar Ibrahim. Those who criticize Anwar for wanting to lower the gasoline prices, my advice for them is "GO TAKE A HIKE".

Muslims Should Wear Safety Helmets Then Serban When Riding Motorbikes

The lesson above is a concept in Islam called “Fiqh Al Awlawiyat” (Fiqh based on importance). We must always put the ”wajib”(compulsory) first before the “optional”. Islam does not advocate its followers to put their lives on the line simply because they want to adhere to an “optional” ruling. Even in Islamic regulation that is “wajib”(compulsory), there are areas where Islam allows exceptions. There are even times when liquor becomes permissible, pork becomes permissible and many more examples.

I will have to agree with Wong Chun Wai this time. But my reasoning will of course be different from his.

Why do I say this? In Islam, wearing a serban is considered “sunnah” or “optional”. But guarding one’s faculties or body parts is “wajib”(compulsory). That is why it is “haram” (prohibited) for Muslims to intentionally hurt themselves. They cannot deliberately cut off one finger, or cut off one leg without any strong justification.

They can however cut off a limb if it’s related to medical reasons i.e. diabetes. Therefore, in the case of wearing motorcycle helmets, I hold the opinion that wearing a safety helmet takes precedence over wearing a serban.

I’d like to suggest that a helmet can be worn over the serban. Just get a bigger helmet for those who do not wish to take off their serban. Please remember that in Islam one’s limbs and body parts are one’s responsibility to God. They have to make sure they take good care of it and not easily let it be exposed to harm. In Islam, one’s faculties is not the sole and absolute rights. It is a responsibility from God upon them.

I call upon the Mufti of Kelantan to make a ruling on this issue, and make it fast. I for one will take off my serban and wear a helmet if I am riding a motorbike. I have ridden a motorbike before and I have been involved in a motor cycle accident before.

Alhamdullillah, I was wearing a safety helmet as it saved my head from getting scraped along the tar road. I remember getting hit, and I remember feeling the pain. In an accident there is no room for u to maneuver. Everything happens in a blink of an eye. Within that split second, anything can happen to you. You could either escape injury altogether or your life could end there and then. All this within a blink of an eye. So, it pays to be prepared. Trust me, I have personal experience and I thank God everyday for allowing me to live.

I also saw scrapes on my safety helmet. If I weren't wearing a safety helmet, that scrape would've been on my face and I would've lost an ear.

In fact, I want the government to make a ruling making all helmets to be full-face type and not the normal type where the face area is open. As a result of that I injured my chin and my cheek and until today there are still scars. If I had worn a full face helmet, God willing, my face would have been saved from injury. But a full face helmet is too expensive. With regulations, it will force supply to jump and thus reducing the cost.

The lesson above is a concept in Islam called “Fiqh Al Awlawiyat” (Fiqh based on importance). We must always put the ”wajib”(compulsory) first before the “optional”. Islam does not advocate its followers to put their lives on the line simply because they want to adhere to an “optional” ruling. Even in Islamic regulation that is “wajib”(compulsory), there are areas where Islam allows exceptions. There are even times when liquor becomes permissible, pork becomes permissible and many more examples.

I also call upon all Muslims to practice “Fiqh Al Awlawiyat” so as to guard the image of Islam. Islam is not unrealistic, Islam is not insensible, Islam is not inconsiderate. Islam takes into consideration sensibly. Please do not smear the good name of Islam.

As for comparison to the Sikh religion, all I have to say is that Islam has different set of rulings as compared to our Sikh brothers. For one, wearing a serban is not compulsory as compared to the Sikh religion.

And let me assure you, PAS and Kelantan state government has never issued orders to replace “helmet” with “serban”.

Penang Monorail Being Shelved? Are These People Kidding?


I believe the amount saved from subsidy cut is enough to build a decent public transportation system in Malaysia. It is said we will save about RM 23 billion from subsidy cuts alone. The Penang Monorail system is only about RM2 billion. That means Malaysia can have 10 more “Penang Monorails” based on the savings alone. If Malaysia sells bonds to subsidize this project and if the project is done on large scale, it will be cheaper and more tracks and trains can be built and bought.

I’ve said it once, I’ve to say it 1000 more times. The subsidy that the government is cutting does not go back to the people. It goes to cronies and people who are connected. It is not spent back to the people. It's making a small minority richer and the majority suffer.

I read the report on Malaysiakini that the Monorail Project ( and PORR) is shelved by the government. We have heard so many times the government says that the money saved from subsidy will be spent on infrastructure.

Well, the Penang Monorail project is BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURE. Not only that, it is a necessary infrastructure in order to reduce our consumption on oil. It is also necessary to provide alternative for the people transporation wise.

It is exactly the much needed projects that is supposed to be built with the money saved from the cutting of subsidy. What’s more, the amount of fuel consumption can be significantly reduced with the project. I estimate at least 5% of Malaysia’s fuel consumption can be reduced, plus, with alternative transportation, the Penang economy will enjoy a bigger increase in consumer spending that will make local business owner very happy.

You see, to put “consumer spending” concept in simpler terms. When people goes out less, it means that people will visit business establishment less. When people goes to “shops” less, people will buy less. When people buy less, business’s earn less profits or records losses. When this happens, we find more “shops” closed and we will also find more people out of jobs.

But with a proper public transportation system, people have alternatives to travel and move without having to hawk their future. People will also have more money in their pockets (termed: disposable income) since they do not have to spend much on fuel anymore. When people have more money, they will spend more, and businesses will thrive more solving a lot of problems related to employment and bankruptcy. Which means less problems for the government and happier subjects of the state.

The reasoning given by BN government is also, at best, funny. Read:

“It stressed that the shelving of the projects was part of the government's "relocation" of resources to cushion the impact of the unprecedented hike in global oil prices.”

Now, isn’t that a case of “liar, liar, pants on fire”. This project is exactly the kind of project needed to handle the “unprecendented hike in global oil prices”. The amount of savings from subsidy due to this project alone will enable the government to sell bonds just for the sake of financing this project.

In fact, I advocate the government of Malaysia to sell bonds in order to build train system in all major cities in Malaysia and at least triple coverage for the current LRT station in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to the savings generated from the cutting of subsidy.

I believe the amount saved from subsidy cut is enough to build a decent public transportation system in Malaysia. It is said we will save about RM 23 billion from subsidy cuts alone. The Penang Monorail system is only about RM2 billion. That means Malaysia can have 10 more “Penang Monorails” based on the savings alone. If Malaysia sells bonds to subsidize this project and if the project is done on large scale, it will be cheaper and more tracks and trains can be built and bought.

But, it seems we have been lied to by Barisan Nasional. We were promised a public transport system from the savings of subsidy. Now, we see public transport are being denied from Penangnites.

If the BN government refuses to finance this project, I challenge the BN government to amend the Finance Act to allow Penang Government to sell bonds. I am sure that if it’s Penang government handling the same project, it will cost MUCH LESS than RM 2 billion. Or with RM 2 billions, Penang government can build tracks 3 times the size that’s is planned by the BN government.
As for PORR, I would like to reserve my comments as there have been so much controversy on the project. Only thing is that, with the project there’ll be less traffic jam. That would mean less waste on fuel which in turn results in less spending on fuel.

Lastly, this denial underlines the hypocrisy of the BN government. This is a trying time and everyone is suffering. It is not the time to play politics and it is certainly not the time to punish people for voting Pakatan Rakyat.

There will be other elections and in the next 4 years, people will decide again. And by allowing this project to proceed, I am sure many will be indebted to BN and will change their stand on the BN. It’s a loss for BN actually.

Maybe it’s a sign that BN is near to it’s demise.

Tulang Besi.

Ban on Lipsticks is Good for Health- They Can Kill You

sAccording to independent lab tests initiated by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, yes, some lipsticks available for sale in 2007 contain lead. The report, “A Poison Kiss,” names the brands tested and the levels of lead found in them. More than half of 33 top-brand lipsticks tested (61%) contained detectable levels of lead, with levels ranging from 0.03 to 0.65 parts per million (ppm). One-third of the lipsticks exceeded the 0.1 ppm FDA lead limit for candy – a standard established to protect children from directly ingesting lead. Among the brands tested found to have the highest lead levels were L’Oreal, Cover Girl and Christian Dior – showing that the more expensive brands are no safer than drugstore brands .

The MPKB has been alledged to have ban lipsticks for all female workers in under MPKB jurisdiction. Although MPKB has denied that piece of news, I have made my own research on the subject. And I can confirm the denial issued by MPKB. All MPKB has done is to suggest a proper way of dressing for women.

Also, if any of my family members were to go to work, I would want them to dress the way MPKB has proposed for them to dress. I want them to be paid for their work, not for how they dress. Worse, they should not be paid for the part of their body that they wish to expose to the public. I think this is the most feminist proposal ever made by anyone to date.

In addition, Over the radio, I was introduced to an organization called “Campaign for Cosmetics Safety”. I went to their website at http://www.safecosmetics.org/ and I found out a lot on the dangers of ‘lipsticks”. It seems lipsticks are as dangerous as ciggerates, if not worse. The bone of contention is that all major lipsticks seem to contain an unhealthy amount of lead in their product.

Let me quote a part from their FAQ:
Q: Does lipstick really contain lead?
A: According to independent lab tests initiated by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, yes, some lipsticks available for sale in 2007 contain lead. The report, “A Poison Kiss,” names the brands tested and the levels of lead found in them. More than half of 33 top-brand lipsticks tested (61%) contained detectable levels of lead, with levels ranging from 0.03 to 0.65 parts per million (ppm). One-third of the lipsticks exceeded the 0.1 ppm FDA lead limit for candy – a standard established to protect children from directly ingesting lead. Among the brands tested found to have the highest lead levels were L’Oreal, Cover Girl and Christian Dior – showing that the more expensive brands are no safer than drugstore brands.


If one were to go down the FAQ one will discover these facts:

a. Most recent scientific studies show there is no safe level of lead for humans
b. The FDA has no safety limit for lead in lipsticks
c. There are brands of lipsticks that doesn’t have leds in them
d. Even in America, they have not finished testing the entire range of lipsticks in the market.
So, they have no complete list of lipsticks free from led. I think the situation is worse in Malaysia. I doubt we have any sort of list. I haven't done any research in the Malaysian context. Maybe the kind readers can enligthen me.
e. The list of lipsticks tested can be downloaded in their report entitled “A Poison Kiss”.
The danger of lead in our body is explained in a statement they published in their website and I quote:

“Lead is a proven neurotoxin that can cause learning, language and behavioral problems such as lowered IQ, reduced school performance and increased aggression. Pregnant women and young children are particularly vulnerable to lead exposure. Lead easily crosses the placenta and enters the fetal brain where it can interfere with normal development. Lead has also been linked to infertility and miscarriage.”

The same website reports that the California senate has voted to ban led from lipsticks. Maybe that is why so many women in Malaysia are suffering from various types of cancer, namely breast cancer. But, I can only guess.

I am sure that the suggestion made by MPKB didn’t take into account the dangers of led in lipsticks, but having known the dangers now, I feel the step taken by MPKB should be lauded. At least until all the lipsticks in Malaysia have been tested for their led content.

As for wearing lipsticks in public, anyone with any sense will tell u that lipsticks does attract attentions especially of the opposite sex. Not wearing lipsticks attracts less attention, I will testify to that.

There are those who says that lipsticks, clothes etc should not be blamed for the occurrence of rape and moral degradation. In the case of Suzaili, she was raped and murdered in spite of wearing a tudung.

My take on it is: if a locked house still gets broken into, does that mean we should stop locking up our houses. As for high heels, if your work requires that you stand up for 8 hrs a day, minimum, then by wearing a high heels, you'll be lucky not to have blisters the size of pancakes at the end of the day. It's not a good idea to wear high heels, in that case.
