TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

Water For Singapore 181

Water For Singapore

1. I would like to thank the visitor to my blog who pointed out that the terms of the agreement to supply raw water and receive treated water to and from Singapore actually favours Malaysia.  I agree.  But I am talking about revision in the price of raw water since 3 sen per 1000 gallons is ridiculous today.  It would be even more ridiculous in the decades to come.  Hence, the need to renegotiate.  According to the present agreement, if Malaysia sells 1,000,000 of raw water it should be paid 3,000 sen or RM30.00.

2.  Malaysia can buy 12% of the raw water treated by Singapore at 50 sen per 1000 gallons i.e for 120,000 gallons, Malaysia has to pay RM60.00 for this.  But the cost of treating water is RM1.09 (say RM1.10)

3.  The savings for Malaysia is therefore 60 sen per 1000 gallons equals to RM72.00 for 120,000 gallons.

4.   Since 3 sen is ridiculous, supposing Malaysia wishes to ask for 6 sen per 1000 gallons, an increase of 100%.  It can only do so if Singapore agrees.  It can be assumed that Singapore would want to increase the price of treated water.  It may ask for the same quantum i.e a 100% increase to RM1.00 per 1000 gallons.

5.  For 120,000 gallons Malaysia will have to pay RM120.00.  The cost of treatment for 120,000 gallons is 1.10 x 120 = RM132.00.

6.  The benefit for Malaysia would be reduced to RM12.00 due to the increase in price.  If there is negotiations then Singapore might be persuaded not to increase or to increase at a lower rate.  But this will not be the end.

7.  Johor charges Malacca 30 sen per 1000 gallons.  If we charge the same to Singapore would it raise the price above the cost of treatment?  If it does than it would be better for Malaysia to have its own treatment plant.

8. That is why negotiations are necessary from time to time.  We should not allow ourselves to be short-changed over the next 57 years to 2060.

9.   Malaysia should learn to include exit clauses when entering into agreements.  It should always remember that over time money depreciates i.e prices increase.

    Salam Tun,
    Saya dapati Saudara Wajaperak seorang yang berani dan jujur untuk mengeluarkan kata2 berikut,

    [Rasulullah mengakui keterbatasannya. Rasulullah bukanlah penentu untuk segala hal. Rasul bukanlah orang yang paling tahu untuk segala hal. Bahkan untuk urusan dunia di zaman beliau pun beliau bukanlah orang yang paling tahu.]

    Kenyataan Saudara Wajaperak adalah benar sebagaimana benarnya islam dan saya bersetuju dengan hujah beliau. Izinkan saya huraikan kenyataan ini. Hanya tuhan pencipta segala sesuatu yang sempurna dan tiada keterbatasan. Nabi ialah manusia biasa yang menyampaikan wahyu tuhan. Di antara kelemahan2 nabi Mohammad rasulullah untuk dicontohi dan diteladani kaedahan mengatasinya oleh segala umat dan pengikut2nya ialah

    1. Ketika perang Badr apabila pejuaang islam yang diketuai oleh nabi sendiri ingin mendirikan kemah di tapak yang sesuai sementara menanti untuk berperang dengan tentera mushrikin Quraish pada hari esoknya. Nabi telah kenalpasti satu kawasan lapang berhampiran satu telaga dan mengarah pejuang islam supaya berkemah di situ. Ada seorang para sahabat menanya nabi bahawa arahan berkemah di tempat itu adakah wahyu atau pendapat nabi sendiri.? Dengan ikhlas dan jujur nabi menjawab ianya keputusan beliau bukan wahyu. Para sahabat tersebut mencadangkan tempat yang lebih baik yang merangkumi 3 telaga dan menafikan sumber air semua sekali kepada musuh. Nabi studio dan mengarah pejuang islam beralih tempat.
    Iktibar dare insiden ini menunjukkan seorang ketua harus terima teguran orang bawah yang betul dan lkhlas, bukan hendak jaga ego, meleting ,dan sindir balik atau kenakan balik kepada orang bawah.

    2. Ketika tentera musuh Quraish yang bergabung dengan yahudi dan lain2 kafilah musuh islam sedang menuju ke Madinah ingin menghapuskan orang2 islam di Madinah, nabi panggil mesyuarat orang2 islam mengumpul pendapat
    tentang cara2 untuk mempertahankan Medinah dari ancaman gabungan musuh2 islam. Ketika itu ada seorang perantau yang dikenali sebagai Sulaiman Parsi dari Parsi yang telah memeluk islam mencadangkan orang2 islam menggali parit besar mengelilingi Medinah untuk menghalang kemaraan tentera musuh. Cara menggali parit besar untuk menghalang musuh luar tidak pernah digunapakai oleh orang2 Arab ketika itu. Nabi segera arah dan Baginda sendiri memulakan usaha menggali parit sebagai penghalang kemaraan musuh. Parit besar itu dipanggil Khandak dan peperangan itu dinamakan perang Khandak yang kesudahan dengan kekecewaan musuh islam yang mengepung oran2 islam 29 hari berkesudahan dengan perkemahan Quraish dimusnahi oleh angin ribut kuat dan mereka telah berundur ke tempat asal mereka di Mekah.

    3. Peristiwa perjanjian Hudaibiyah. Rombongan Rasulullah seramai 1000 orang tidak diberi kebenaran oleh Quraish musrikin untuk memasuki kota Mekah untuk menunaikan ibadah Haji. Kekecewaan menyelubungi suasana di kalangan orang2 islam ketika itu termasuk Abu Bakar, Umar, Ali dan para sahabat handalan yang lain. Pihak musuh juga tidak kurangnya pahlawan berwibawa seperti Khalid ibni Walid, Ikrimah, Amr Al As dan Suhail yang mengetuai rombongan rundingan kafirun ketika itu. Manakala menantu nabi sendiri Saidina Othman bin Afan diutus masuk ke Mekah seorang diri untuk berunding dengan ketua Quraish, Abu Sufian.
    Apabila Quraish tidak benarkan rombongan islam memasuki Mekah untuk menunaikan ibadah Haji walau pun secara aman dan damai, nabi pun mengarahkan para sahabat mengorbankan binatang2 korban yang mereka masing2 bawa. Tiada siapa pun ikut arahan nabi. Nabi juga kecewa dan masuk ke dalam kemah bercerita keadaan yang hampir memberontak kepada isteri nabi, Umi Selamah. Umi Salamah menasihati nabi supaya nabi keluar dari kemah dan mulakan upacara berkorban sebagai memberi contoh kepada para sahabat. Maka nabi mulai mengorbankan unta Baginda dan kemudian diikuti oleh pengorbanan masing2 oleh para sahabat di Hudaibiyah. Umi Salamah ialah seorang janda kepada Abu Salamah yang meninggal dunia akibat kecederaan teruk di Perang Uhuk di Madinah.

    4. Kisah2 sejarah di atas menunjukkan nabi tidak autocratic dan mutlak tetapi menerima nasihat dan pandangan orang lain yang lebih bernas. Walau pun begitu nabi adalah seorang yang bijaksana, waras, tidak angkuh dan sunat dicontohi orang2 islam. Rukun islam pertama ialah SHAHADAH yang mana kalimah kedua Muhammad ialah rasulullah. Shahadah ialah pengakuan seseorang itu kepada islam dan nama Muhammad mesti disebut sebagai rasul.

    Dear Tun,

    England has tried and experimented school based coursework and wants to scrapped it next year. Whereas, next year Malaysia is just about to experiment with school based coursework and move away from centralised exams.

    [22 August 2013 Last updated at 01:04

    Changes to GCSE and other exams

    Many of the last students to study modular GCSE courses in England receive their results in August 2013 – from next summer all pupils will sit exams at the end of their two-year courses.

    The switch away from coursework and class assessments, which contribute towards a pupil’s final result, is part of the government’s plan to revamp school exams. The table below summarises some of the key changes to GCSE exams.

    * WALES AND NORTHERN IRELAND ARE KEEPING GCSES, BUT WILL NOT ADOPT THE CHANGES OUTLINED ABOVE. SCOTLAND HAS ITS OWN SYSTEM.]

    Style

    Modular courses with coursework plus exams. Exams taken throughout the course as modules are completed. However, from Sep 2012, coursework and modules were reduced or reformed

    Modular courses scrapped, new course content, reduced coursework (controlled assessment) but GCSE brand retained. Exams taken after two years rather than at the end of modules. More demanding essay-style questions

    Exam board

    Multiple exam boards

    Multiple exam boards

    Timeframe

    Two-year course period; exams can be taken at the end of each module

    Exams taken at the end of two-year period.

    Subjects

    Changes will be applied to core subjects – English, maths, sciences, history and geography – with others to follow.

    Grading

    A* – G

    Numbers 8 (top) to 1 (bottom). Pass mark to be pushed higher

    Continue reading the main story
    Timetable
    As well as GCSE exams, the government is planning changes to AS- and A-levels in England. Teaching for those will start in September 2015.

    Find out when all the proposed exam changes are happening from the timetable below.

    * WALES HAS SAID IT IS KEEPING A-LEVELS. NORTHERN IRELAND IS REVIEWING ITS EXAMS BUT SAID RECENTLY IT WOULD KEEP THE MODULAR STRUCTURE OF A-LEVELS SO THAT THE AS-LEVEL WILL STILL COUNT TOWARDS THE FINAL A-LEVEL GRADE. EXAMS WILL BE SUMMER-ONLY. SCOTLAND HAS ITS OWN SYSTEM.

    Amin Tan,

    I definitely like to the word “friend”. More friendly words should be used by everyone as all are for the better of Malaysia. I cannot see why we should see that writing in blogs must be attack and defend in all our conversation. The world is already so troublesome why make it worst. When someone ask we answer and no more or no less, just answer without prejudice thoughts and idea. We should ask our self what is winning and the meaning of winning. Winning a badminton or a squash title is winning but winning in a debate or argument is pure nonsense and waste of time.

    Remember the movie “paying forward”
    Why must we step-on people’s toes just to win some argument, money, frame and fortune.

    even though he/she mention himself that he/she will not coming to this blog anymore sometimes ago, unfortunately, i still can see his/her comments all over the postings, i wonder what wrong with his/her brain. has he/she left it somewhere? you should be shame for not be able to commit with your own word. even though it is free speech country, once your said you have to firm with it. Only then your comment will be valid. otherwise, your comment can be considered as lie.

    Semoga Tun mengizinkan ruangan..

    Saudara Sentinel 3..

    Telah menceritakan kepada kami Abu Bakr bin Abu Syaibah dan ‘Amru An Naqid seluruhnya dari Al Aswad bin ‘Amir; Abu Bakr berkata; Telah menceritakan kepada kami Aswad bin ‘Amir; Telah menceritakan kepada kami Hammad bin Salamah dari Hisyam bin ‘Urwah dari Bapaknya dari ‘Aisyah dan dari Tsabit dari Anas bahwa Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam pernah melewati suatu kaum yang sedang mengawinkan pohon kurma lalu beliau bersabda: “Sekiranya mereka tidak melakukannya, kurma itu akan (tetap) baik”. Tapi setelah itu, ternyata kurma tersebut tumbuh dalam keadaan rusak. Hingga suatu saat Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam melewati mereka lagi dan melihat hal itu beliau bertanya: ‘Ada apa dengan pohon kurma kalian? Mereka menjawab; Bukankah anda telah mengatakan hal ini dan hal itu? Beliau lalu bersabda: ‘Kalian lebih mengetahui urusan dunia kalian’ (HR Muslim 4358)

    Kaum sekulerisme berpendapat urusan dunia tidaklah diurus oleh agama, terbukti dalam hadits tersebut Rasulullah salah memberikan nasehat dalam penanaman kurma berikut contoh pernyataan mereka selengkapnya,

    **** awal kutipan *****

    “Ketika Nabi shallalahu alaihi wasallam memberikan nasihat tentang cara mengawinkan pohon kurma supaya berbuah, ini bisa dianggap bahwa beliau sudah memasukkan otoritas agama untuk urusan duniawi yang di mana beliau tidak mendapatkan wahyu atau kewenangan untuk itu.

    Tapi ternyata dalam masalah menanam kurma ini pendapat beliau keliru. Pohon kurma itu malah menjadi mandul. Maka para petani kurma itu mengadu lagi kepada Nabi saw, meminta pertanggungjawaban beliau. Dan beliau menyadari kesalahan advisnya waktu itu dan dengan rendah hati berkata, “Kalau itu berkaitan dengan urusan agama ikutilah aku, tapi kalau itu berkaitan dengan urusan dunia kamu, maka “Antum a’lamu bi umuri dunyaakum”, kamu sekalian lebih mengetahui urusan duniamu.

    Rasulullah mengakui keterbatasannya. Rasulullah bukanlah penentu untuk segala hal. Rasul bukanlah orang yang paling tahu untuk segala hal. Bahkan untuk urusan dunia di jaman beliau pun beliau bukanlah orang yang paling tahu.

    Jadi tidak mungkin jika kita menuntut Rasulullah untuk mengetahui segala sesuatu hal tentang urusan dunia. Apalagi kalau mengurusi urusan kita di jaman modern ini…! Tentu tidak mungkin kita harus mencari-cari semua aturan tetek-bengek dalam hadist beliau. Itu namanya set-back. Lha wong di jamannya saja Rasulullah menyatakan bahwa ada hal-hal yang tidak beliau pahami dan hendaknya tidak mengikuti pendapat beliau dalam ‘urusan duniamu’ tersebut.”

    **** akhir kutipan *****

    Dalam hadits di atas Rasulullah hanya memberikan tanggapan mengapa mesti kurma itu dikawinkan segala, mengapa tidak dibiarkan begitu saja secara alami. Hal ini dapat kita ketahui terkait firman Allah Azza wa Jalla, “subhaana alladzii khalaqa al-azwaaja kullahaa mimmaa tunbitu al-ardhu” , “Maha Suci Tuhan yang telah menciptakan pasangan-pasangan semuanya, baik dari apa yang ditumbuhkan oleh bumi” (QS Yaa Siin [36]:36).

    Permasalahan kurma tersebut tumbuh dalam keadaan rusak tidaklah terkait dengan tanggapan Rasulullah.

    Sedangkan makna perkataan Rasulullah, “wa antum a’lamu bi amri dunyakum”, “dan kamu sekalian lebih mengetahui urusan-urusan duniamu” , yang dimaksud “urusan dunia” khusus urusan disiplin ilmu tertentu atau pengetahuan tertentu di luar ilmu agama, seperti dalam hadits tersebut adalah ilmu pertanian, ilmu pengetahuan manusia dalam membantu perkawinan kurma.

    Namun ilmu pengetahuan yang didalami oleh manusia harus tetap merujuk dengan Al Qur’an dan Hadits dan menetapkannya dalam hukum taklifi yang lima (haram, makruh, wajib, sunnah, dan mubah). Perbuatan merujuk dengan Al Qur’an dan Hadits termasuk ke dalam dzikrullah (mengingat Allah) sebagaimana Ulil Albab, muslim yang menggunakan lubb atau akal qalbu atau muslim yang menundukkan akal pikirannya kepada akal qalbu..

    musato..Please use the same language to explain the tassawuf on this perspective..
    Don’t make me hound you down..

    “And the light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not.The people that walketh in the darkness have seen a great light.They that dwelleth in the land of the shadow of death upon them hath the light shone.The shadow of death..

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Thank you}

    Tun has done a lot of good deeds by providing the platform for all of us to debate and interact. I have the good intention to propagate and spread the religion of Islam among some of us. Unfortunately, some of us become hostile towards me calling me self hate and hating Chinese. How can I be hating Chinese because I am Chinese myself. It is common knowledge that majority of Chinese do not have any religion and they do not have morality guide. For simple example, kencing berak tidak basuh, makan babi and so on. Generally Chinese are sensible, hard working and clever but because they have no religion, they do not believe in the day of Judgement and retribution, therefore they have no qualms to cheat and lie. If only the Chinese in Malaysia study Quran and intermarry with the Malays we would be a blessed country and a world beater, negara yang diredhai, insha Allah.

    However, if what I have written is considered to be offensive to some of you I am sorry and please forgive me. I am not god and I am far from being perfect. I am only human. I have meant well. But again they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Buat permulaan, Kedah mengadakan undang undang menghalang penyebaran syiah sudah dikira satu perkara yang baik.

    I do not know what the Malaysian negotiators are up to. In the Star today, 19 August 2013 Page 21 ‘Unsung heroes at the TPPA talks’. it was reported……’the Cabinet had already decided earlier on, that Malaysia rejects most elements of the current proposal. THE NEGOTIATORS FOR SOEs ARE ALREADY WORKING WITH LIKE-MINDED COUNTRIES PARTICIPATING IN THE TPPA TO COME UP WITH AN ALTERNATIVE TEXT. The Government has directed the negotiators to continue ensuring that Malaysia’s sovereignty is defended in the course of the negotiations.’…….
    I PRESUME THE LIKE MINDED-COUNTRIES ARE VIETNAM, PERU, CHILE AND SINGAPORE. In this list only has a whole panoply of state-owned enterprises (SOEs). The vital sentence gives one the impression that SINGAPORE BEING OF LIKE MINDED LIKE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL PREPARE THE DRAFT FOR THE MALAYSIAN NEGOTIATORS TO VET. So easy ? PLEASE GENTLE MALAYSIAN NEGOTIATORS. here is the list again when MALAYSIA LOST MORE IN PEACETIME THAN IN A WAR (apologies to O’Imbalance who wants to see sunshine and blue skies every day – sorry Sir! )
    1. The 1962 Water Agreement. In 2013, Malaysia pays to give free water to Singapore.
    2. The Malaysia-Singapore Airlines division of assets. Malaysia gave all the ‘software’ to Singapore except the planes. The late Tun Dr Ismail was upset.
    3. 2004 – 2013 i) The Saddam Hussein UN Sanctions re-arrangement.
    ii) The sale and repurchase, or sale of shares etc. eg. TNB
    iii) In 2008, Pulau Batu Putih was lost.
    iv) In 2008, Maybank bought at top price from Temasek and Kookmin
    the shares of the Indonesiona International Bank. It is alleged Maybank
    may suffer a loss of billions of ringgits soon.
    v) The oil exploration blocks re-arrangement.
    vi) The 25 miles of rails in Singapore belongs to KTM
    vii) Miscellaneous. What we do not know, we do not know.

    I have yet to come across a SINGLE DEAL IN WHICH MALAYSIA GAINED ! Please gentle Malaysian negotiators be aware of smooth talking and suave types from foreign lands. Just look at the above-mentioned list and one wonders……………….! You will definitely be recognised as heroes if you just remember TO SAFEGUARD OUR BELOVED’S MALAYSIA’S SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM. Do not be like those who sold our hapless grandmothers down river.

    Why do people that like BN and PR and at the same time also like Tun Dr.M, LKY, LGE and Datuk Seri Najib? It is because these people prefer to look at positive things of each person or group and hope that negative things can be corrected and improved with realisation and time. These are the people that really love LIFE, PEACE and HARMONY.

    What is the point of living a life with money, reputation (come from blue blood family), educated at the best university and live in beautiful house but have dirty, evil and dark thoughts and mind?
    What is the point of living a life where you constantly think that the world is against you as you are always right and need to constantly looking and checking your back (behind)?

    The english speaking or chinese speaking or malay speaking or indian speaking are not the problem. The problem is inside your mind. There are all sort of people and all sort of spoken language and they are all the same. There always be people that pro and against any/many subject and that is ok as it is god that give human the ability to choose. It is not wrong to sit on the fence or floor or chair as long as you are comfortable and happy.

    A good brain, great knowledge and successful life is not a PRIVILEGE as a matter of fact it is a RESPONSIBILITY.
    It is a responsibility to help, share and lead others, not to condemn or suppress or look-down or brand others.
    Only the very evil-minded person will think that the God given privileges as their natural born-rights and start to throw their “weight” around.

    If we can start to think that giving or selling water to Singapore as a good deed to humanity rather then from dollar and cents angle then the story ends and if Singapore can appreciate the good deed then it would be even better as both country and its people can live together happily.

    MALAYSIA SHOULD FOLLOW WHAT SINGAPORE DO
    1. TOOK LEVY FROM OUR VEHICLE

    MALAYSIAN GOVT FAILED TO TAKE LEVY FROM SINGAPORE INVESTORS
    VIA THEIR WORK PERMIT LEVY
    MOSTLY ALSO COMES HERE TO WORK

    IN SINGAPORE THE MALAYSIAN CLEANER THAT WORKS THERE
    PAY LEVY UP TO SIN $600 PER MONTH NOT YEARLY THAT SUMS TO SIN $ 7200 PER YR
    WHICH EQUIVALENT TO MALAYSIAN RINGGIT 16560 PER YR PER PERSON
    AND THEY HAVE MILLIONS OF FOREIGN WORKERS WHICH HAS THREATENS SINGAPOREANS IN TERMS OF THEIR HOUSES GETTING UNAFFORDABLE
    THEIR TRANSPORT, MEDICAL ETC AND IT IS ALL ON THE INCREASE
    THE GOVT GAINS EVERY INCREASES DESPITE THEIR GOOD WORDS

    THEY MENTION IT IS IMPORTANT TO SINGAPORE TO HAVE FOREIGN TALENT
    BUT DO NOT MENTIONS TO SINGAPOREANS OF BILLIONS OF FOREIGN LEVY THAT THEY REAPS , AS SUCH SINGAPOREANS ARE NON TALENTED PEOPLE
    AND AT THE EXPENSE OF PITY SINGAPOREANS

    MALAYSIA GOVT GIVES GOODIES FROM GOVT POCKETS
    SINGAPORE GOVT GIVES GOODIES AT SPECIFIC TIME FROM SINGAPOREANS OWN POCKETS
    MALAYSIA GOVT CAN FOLLOW WHAT SINGAPORE GOVT DO
    BUT NOT THE EXTENDS EXTORTS FROM ITS OWN PEOPLE

    Please do not put words in my mouth. I do not compare and have prejudice ideas about Islam and as a matter of fact i am learning about the religion and its teaching. All religious teachings are good and any good teaching which suit me or make sense should be practice and respected. I think Amin Tan is a better man as he uses wisdom rather than force. His religion is his choice and he have every right to choose. Islam is a beautiful religion and like all religion there are supporters and opposition. On one should bad mouth other people belief and they can do whatever they think is right under the law of the country. It is human that is bad not religion. There are many things that Mr. Amin Tan wrote that are beneficial to people and if there are any debate it is purely for understanding, sharing and knowledge. I dont think there are anyone that hate or despise Mr. Amin Tan but it is better if he can tell us his feelings. I think it is your imagination and manifestation that people like attack this and that. Anyone that dont agree with you should not be branded as “attacker” but there should be more communication to make people understand.

    Tun also think that UMNO should change (from newspaper) and give younger people a chance, so what is your comment.

    Over to you Sir.

    Dear Tun,

    Malaysia is a third world country with a third world mentality because it is quite embarrassing or self incriminating to write about it because the proverb says if it rains gold in Singapore and it rains stones in malaysia, it is still better to live in Malaysia. That is the patriotic spirit displays by a staunched nationalist.

    1. Queue or lining up waiting for a person’s turn is a Western invention. Queue is a foreign culture. During the recent PRU 13, I called a friend in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan and I told him the queue in Subang Jaya where I voted is very long, 4 hours of waiting in the queue to cast our votes. He told me he was sad because kampong people in Kubang kerian do not queue, they ‘berebut'(scramble) to vote.

    2. Earlier this year I went to Johore Bharu to attend a relative wedding via Singapore. First we took MRT, TAXI and bus to Woodland to come to JB. It was all queue and orderly. The moment we crossed into JB and freedom, everybody ran at top speed choking the bus door squeezing to board the bus.
    At the taxi stand, we witnessed another natural display of unruly human freedom. Touts from unlicensed ‘private sapu’, as well as licensed taxi haggled for the price. Here we displayed unscrupulous free markets. There is no way taxi in Singapore can fleece and cheat customers.

    3. Singapore is not as simple and single street town as it looks, as we may compare with Kampar, Perak. It has a population of 5 millions, third richest country in the world, after Sweden and Denmark, in terms and according to per capita income. As Lee Kuan Yew put it ‘ the challenge to build 88 storeys of building on marshland. The development is upwards and downwards. For housing, people live in HDB flats. For transportation they have affordable, efficient MRT underground railway, air-conditioned the whole underground space. Singapore hardly has traffic jam compared to Kuala Lumpur or even Kota Bharu, because the bulk of the traffic has gone underground MRT railway.
    Kota Bharu has massive traffic jam everyday. The road infrastructure in Kelantan remain almost the same since 1970. The roads are narrow whereas the number of vehicles have increased many fold since 40 years ago, except for the district of Jeli where vast improvement in real physical infrastructure truly takes place.

    4. Our government policy towards Singapore and other neighbouring countries is that of friendly, mutually beneficial engagement and not of confrontational, jealousy, suspicion and badmouthing our neighbours.
    Neither is our government practise closed door, isolationist and reclusive economy. We trade with advanced countries as well as third world countries. In trading, we win some we lose some. Nobody ever is able to sell any product at a very lucrative price in huge volume and for long period. Competition will make sure efficient allocation of resources and wipe out excessive economic rent.
    Our country has wise leader in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib. Let us all support the government and put to rest our ambition to usurp power from the leadership of Datuk Seri Najib by criticising and undermining everything he does. Let us not be the enemy within.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Selamat Hari Raya Tun, and I would like to say I visited your open house today but I did not manage to salam with you because there were too many people. Please take care of your health, as I worry with all that salam with so many people. If next year you do not salam, I think the rakyat would understand. However, I did ate the satays, I think it was delicious. Complements to the chefs.

    On to the topic regarding Egypt. As you already know, the protestors in Egypt are being massacred by the interim government and the army. It is really a sad day so many Muslims being killed. I think a big issue here is do Muslims really follow the teachings of Islam? We just concluded the fasting month of Ramadhan and these so called Muslims started killing fellow Muslims. Did not Ramadhan teach us to be patient, to forgive and see fellows Muslims as brothers? The massacre of Muslims in Egypt included innocent man, woman and child.

    The problem with the Muslim world is that they say they follow the Al-Quran and the Hadith. These means saying the shahadah, perform the 5 daily prayers, fasting in the month of Ramadhan, pay zakat and perform the haj. But what about not killing fellow Muslims? Isn’t Islam forbids us from killing another Muslim?

    Take Saudi Arabia for instance. True, they implement Islamic laws. True, the women there must where the hijab. True, there are no pubs or clubs in Saudi Arabia. But does Saudi Arabia truly practice Islamic teachings 100%?

    What about the killing of Muslim protestors in Egypt? Why is Saudi Arabia labeling them as terrorists when these protestors did not have bombs, tanks or rifles? They only protested because they wanted their president back. Are these Muslims terrorists simply because they want their president back?

    If the Sauds are not clear about Islamic teachings, they can always ask their mufti whether is it halal or haram for the Muslims in Egypt to be killed simply because they wanted their president back? I’m sure there are many Muslim scholars and mufti in Saudi Arabia to guide the Sauds on the teachings of Islam.

    Killing unjustly is one of the seven biggest sins in Islam.

    Having said that, I think the main reason why the interim government and the Egyptian army are bold enough to attack the protestors is due to the support they receive from Saudi Arabia. After the coup, Saudi Arabia conveniently pays them 5 billions in aid which easily out match the US aid of only 1.3 bullion.

    It is for correct the international community to condemn, suspend aid, and review their relationship with Egypt. The United States and Turkey have also cancelled the military training with Egypt. Some countries have also stopped giving aid to Egypt. While all this is correct, I think a more affective way is to “persuade” Saudi Arabia, to not support the Egyptian interim government and the army. I am sure the combine might of the OIC, UN, United States and the EU could ‘persuade’ Saudi Arabia to change its stand. Saudi Arabia must come to understand that killing innocent Muslims is not the way even though it is in conflict with its own personal agenda.

    I think if Egypt is isolated, with no one helping it particularly Saudi Arabia, it will see the error of its ways.

    It is strange how brainwashed minds just could not see clearly what is real and what is fiction. Here in this distinguished Blog, we have personalities which proclaimed they love the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties and the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore at the same time. I can only conclude that these people, the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese and also English speaking Chinese are just habitual fence-sitters. The BN wins, they are there. The Opposition wins, they are also there. AS I ALWAYS SAID ABOUT THE ENGLISH SPEAKING CHINESE IN THIS COUNTRY IS THAT THEY ARE SUPER ARGUMENTATIVE, HOLLOW AND BEREFT OF ANY CULTURAL BALLAST. This is their downfall in present day beloved Malaysia. Their brainwashed attitudes treat the daily swirling political events of Malaysia as doomsday which IS UTTERLY UNTRUE AS WE KNOW IT – THAT MALAYSIA IS A RUNAWAY SUCCESS IN HUMAN TERMS AND SINGAPORE A RUNAWAY FAILURE. This is CLEARLY ILLUSTRATED BY THE FREE WATER SINGAPORE HAS HAD SINCE 1962 AND NOW, WITH A DEPRECIATION OF THE RINGGIT, MALAYSIA PAYS TO GIVE SINGAPORE FREE WATER !!! And yet, Singapore with the paid free water, is having insoluble problems with her human resources. AND AS GOOD NEIGHBOURS IT IS NOT TO OUR ADVANTAGE TO SEE THEM ENDED UP THIS WAY – even with our paid free water to Singapore.

    Tun

    For our blogging Chinese friends, O’Imbalance, HockBengTeoh456 and those of similar ilk.

    1. I do not understand why you people pick on Saudara Amin Tan, myself and others that Islam is a bad religion. First, the choice of religion is a personal prerogative. Second, there are over 70 Millions Chinese Muslims in China and about 100,000 Chinese Muslims in Malaysia (which is increasing day by day). Islam is pure, strong and compassionate ! Both of you should discover the life-styles of the Muslims sometime. You are welcome. We have no hatred in our hearts.
    2. I do not understand why some brain-washed Malaysians keep on insisting that Lee Kuan Yew who is the epitome of all that is very good and world class in Singapore has no interest in Malaysian politics and he is just a distinguished benign elderly gentleman like Santa Claus. Contrary to this misled belief, the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore’s obsession is confirmed by the following facts :-
    i) His excellent hidden remarks to the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP on the PR in his latest book. If you remember the DAP failed to deliver a conquered Malaysia to safe his failed legacy of a lifetime after 47 long years of inaction but contemplating their navels. Right ?
    2) His ill-advised Grand Tour of the Ulus to congratulate the leaders of the Opposition in April 2008. A Malaysian tour which even his ranking PAPs and family avoid since 1965. Even the head honcho of MCA which the DAP destroyed, was decked out in Mandarin red silk to meet him to seek out a job for himself. Hmm !
    3. Why did Lee Kuan Yew supported the creation of the DAP in 1966 ? A political party is to rule a country and is not formed to play marbles like O’Imbalance or HockBengTeoh456. And confirmed its Trojan Horse status for 42 long years (the Greeks could only tahan one full night) in the Opposition which suddenly became all sound and fury in 2008 as if someone had pressed a robotic bottom ! They shouted loyally ‘Malaysia for Malaysians’ till recently when they suddenly realised that they were out of synch with their spiritual leader, Lee Kuan Yew, who could not now shout, ‘Singapore for Singaporeans’ in their own spiritual homeland.
    4. Both of you, O’Imbalance and HockBengTeoh456 accused me of not doing anything for the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese especially the younger Chinese. HOW CAN YOU ACCUSE ME WHEN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ME ? Strange ! I might even have benefitted you both somewhere and sometime. OK. What have you both done for our beloved Malaysia like myself WHO WON A MODEST BRONZE MEDAL AT THE 1967 SEAP GAMES ?
    5. Please do not pick on us O’Imbalance, HockBengTeoh456 etc, WE LOVE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA, OUR BELOVED YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND OUR BELOVED BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES RIGHT OR WRONG ! Please join us. Both of you are most welcomed and will feel better too without irrational emotions in your heart which rule your heads. THINK !
    5. Sorry ! Both of you may now see how the dysfunctional Singaporean Trojan Horse the DEMOCRATIC ACTION PARTY IS NOW NOT LIVING UP TO THEIR VAUNTED AND FLAUNTED BILLING OF BEING DEMOCRATIC. OK ? For 47 long years, it was just a magic show with thick smoke and broken opaque mirrors put up by them like their SPIRITUAL LEADER LEE KUAN YEW IN THEIR SPIRITUAL HOMELAND SINGAPORE

    Salam YAB & diKasihi Tun,

    1. Kedah mesti kenakan caj yang berpatutan untuk AIR MENTAH bila perjanjian dengan Pulau Pinang mengenai air dibuat/meterai. Jangan ulang kesilapan lalu (perjanjian air dengan Singapura). Dan pastikan ada klausa yang membolehkan caj dinaikkan mengikut keadaan semasa.

    2. Saya nampak Dato’ Seri Najib masih lagi lemah dalam menangani masaalah semasa dan masih lagi ingin mengambil hati kaum bukan Bumiputra, mereka yang liberal & Pembangkang. – mengejar ‘popularity’. Apa guna DSN menjadi popular di kalangan mereka yang TIDAK MENYOKONG Kerajaan kerana dari keputusan PRU-13 kita sudah nampak sikap sebenar mereka – mereka cuma berpura-pura. SPR & Kerajaan cuba memperbaiki sistem pilihanraya dengan mengambil-kira sebahagian pandangan Pembangkang, tapi apa yang berlaku ialah Pembangkang telah memanipulasikan isu dakwat kekal (sebagai contoh). Pembangkang juga MENIPU/MEMFITNAH BN dan SPR dalam banyak hal. Mengapa Kerajaan atau SPR tidak menyaman Pembangkang kerana memfitnah?

    3. Kembalikan ISA dan EO. Negara lebih aman dengan adanya ISA/EO. Hak asasi majoriti lebih penting dari hak asasi Penjenayah/Penghasut atau orang disyaki. Pembangkang memang suka jika negara huru-hara sebab boleh dijadikan modal untuk memburukkan BN.

    4. Jika Ambiga berkeras (nampak seperti mengugut) untuk adakan Bersih 4.0 (menghuruharakan negara) jika kesemua tuntutan2 mereka tidak dipenuhi, biarkan, tapi ambil TINDAKAN tegas jika mereka melanggar apa-apa peraturan. Lama-lama mereka akan letih sebab majoriti rakyat Malaysia cintakan keaamanan. Atas alasan apa DSN beriya-iya memenuhi tuntutan melampau Pembangkang? Adakah PM dengar denyut nadi rakyat atau Pembangkang? Kadang-kadang saya rasa Pembangkang yang memerintah Malaysia.

    5. DSN ‘MUNGKIR JANJI’ kepada kami yang mengundi BN pada PRU-13. Saya yang sentiasa menyokong BN berasa seolah-olah undi yang saya beri kepada BN TIDAK DIHARGAI. Tetapi, saya tidak akan mengundi PAS/PKR/DAP sebab Penipu Rakyat memang jauh lebih teruk dari BN. UMNO mesti balik kepada Perjuangan asal.

    6. UMNO/BN juga kena singkirkan pemimpin-pemimpin yang jadi liabiliti kepada UMNO/BN. Ada Menteri2 UMNO/BN yang bercakap selalunya menyebelahi Pembangkang. Saya yakin Menteri2 sebegini akan lompat kepada Pembangkang jika BN tumbang atau jika BN menang tipis. Jadi elok singkirkan mereka ini sebelum terlambat.

    7. Tahniah kepada KDN yang melucutkan ’PR’ rakyat Singapura yang menghina Islam (isu surau). Dan jika perlu, LUCUTKAN juga KERAKYATAN orang Malaysia yang sengaja menghina Negara dan Islam & memburuk-burukkan Malaysia di mata dunia.

    8. Saya fikir adalah KESILAPAN yang besar bilamana Tunku Abdul Rahman memberi kerakyatan percuma kepada lebih sejuta orang bukan Melayu yang dibawa ke Tanah Melayu untuk bekerja di lombong/ladang. Ini kerana banyak dari kalangan mereka ini (serta keturunan mereka) yang masih lagi tidak tahu berbahasa Melayu. Buat MALU saja jadi rakyat Malaysia. Saya pernah ke Cina/Korea/Taiwan/Jepun dan negara-negara Eropah, dan boleh dikatakan kemua mereka sentiasa bertutur dalam bahasa Kebangsaan mereka dan kebanyakan mereka sukar (mungkin enggan) bercakap bahasa lain.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    *** Semoga Allah SWT melindungi Tun sekeluarga. ***

    Whether the government wants to demolish or not the surau is none of this aso (who happens to be an infidel) concern, who thinks she is the sole taxpayers of this country.

    70. Together with mubarak chan, you are the chinese who want to hapuskan kuasa politik cina in all your life, and at this age, you still have the hatred on your own race.}

    Puan HBT 456 berhajat merampas kuasa politik di Malaysia daripada orang Melayu. Sampai yauma kiamah pun tidak mungkin. HBT kecewa dengan MCA dan GERAKAN kerana berbaik2 dan berkerjasama dengan UMNO. Mereka tidak mahu bekerjasama dengan UMNO DAN berkongsi kuasa politik setakat 20%. Mereka mahu bolot semua kuasa atas dasar siapa kuat dia dapat. Inilah manusia tamak kuasa seperti ketua mereka Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yang janjikan taraf Bumiputra untuk HBT 456 jika beliau dapat jadi Perdana Menteri. Tunggu sehingga kucing bertanduk.

    For O’Imbalance who needs re-balancing of his/her balls bearings. How true ! How true ! Man proposes. God disposes. And a saying,’ Only when you have peace and harmony at home, then you can fight in the streets !’ How true ! How true !

    Past and recent events concerning the Singaporean Trojan Horse the DAP have put this dysfunctional political party on notice that it is not at all as well as it is made out to be by the use of magic shows with thick smoke and broken opaque mirrors.
    With a record of 47 long years of inaction, and a leadership which is inferior in intellect to their spiritual leader, the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore, their spiritual homeland and also unqualified, uneducated and inexperienced in public affairs, avoidable clangers of the common kind for elections should not have occurred. But these voting incidents did happen like in the Selangor Shooting Association which I cleaned up in 1966 for Tun Tan Siew Sin. This sports association was controlled by only 32 Tai Poh Hakkas and they did exactly what the DAP was alleged to have done in their December 2012 CEC Elections. After the cleansing, the Selangor Shooting Association now has over 2,000 members of all races and over RM 2 Millions in its kitty.
    To add to the treble dilemma of the DAP, 90% of the Chinese, Malaysian Chinese, support the party led by the dysfunctional leadership which has yet to be determined whether all the leaders were LEGAL OR ILLEGAL SINCE DECEMBER 2012 ! AND ADDED ON TO THIS DOUBT, THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP’S SPIRITUAL LEADER THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE (DAP’s SPIRITUAL HOMELAND) ARE NOW FOUND WANTING BY THE SINGAPOREANS THEMSELVES. The leadership of the DAP has now found themselves tied up in knots which in turn is a Gordian Knot with the very rich PKR and the very pious PAS which even their spiritual leader Lee Kuan Yew urge them to leave such a unworkable arrangement. I believe and trust Lee Kuan Yew’s intellect and advice.
    There is a common saying,’ Two Wrongs do not make a Right ‘ which Prime Minister Curtin of Australia cleverly spun into ‘ Two Wongs do not make a White ‘. I leave the dear reader to conjure up other combinations to fit in with the TREBLE DILEMMA OF THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE TODAY ! Not to do a new CEC Election is wrong ! To do a new CEC Election it is alleged that this might be wrong because the whole of the CEC leadership which stood as the 13th General Elections candidates may not have the LOCUS STANDI to be legal representatives of this dysfunctional party, the DAP. This confirms what I said about the DAP leadership being unqualified, uneducated, and inexperienced in public affairs and lack the powerful intellect of their spiritual leader Lee Kuan Yew of their spirital homeland Singapore. Man proposes. God disposes. No more. No less.

    Mubarakchan

    Thank you for those information about LKY and Singapore and i am very sorry to inform you that i am not interested about Singapore especially LKY failure or success. I am also not interested to know who you are and who you are related to but thanks for the info anyway. My primary concern is Malaysia and ruling Govt continuous failure, some success and blur direction.

    I’ve done balancing all rim (ball-bearings to you), alignment of views (wheel), flushing of the mind (radiator) and i still think that you should put your good and positive energy (thinking) into good use for Malaysia. We are getting older by the days and wasting time to talk about Singapore is of no use to anyone as we dont live there and they are not our govt. They can loss all their people money and do 1 million mistakes and it will not bother me. I am more interested to know how UMNO going to run the country with their ineffective and not so popular partners. (your version: UMNO with the 13 component parties )

    Put yourself into the man-on-the street shoes and you will see many indifferent of the ruling party and people. Dont just say you are a simple man that wear “ah pek” shorts but drink coffee at Bangsar Village is a down-to-earth. Go on the streets and lanes and see how people are struggling to make a living. Go talk to young people and listen to their needs and inspirations. Do what a well-know righteous man (his name start with a “B”) did, throw away your ego and pride, then you can start seeing and listening and be with the people. Dont sit on your golden throne and comment things without justification and think your mind is the best or you are always right. Like i said, if you care enough you can do it and the reward is more fulfilling than money, winning(ego) and false (human) legacy.

    One extremism group and action will grow to more extremists, groups and responses.
    One smile will grow to millions of smile.
    One caring attitude will grow to many caring communities.
    Whichever Malaysia choose is a choice.
    Dont blame others or give excuse for your choice.

    Thank you for I enjoy sharing with you

    For O’Imbalance and his/her fellow travellers. I have lived many years in the West and observed the ways of the Westerners. The Westerners have more respect for a person like our good TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD THAN YOUR BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE because they are all trained to seek and respect and admire the FACTS AND THE TRUTH. For expediency whatever this means, they all just keep quiet for the time being. It is the Tun the Westerners admire, the genuine article, not Lee Kuan Yew. Remember what President Nixon said with a tongue in the cheek,’ BIG MAN IN A SMALL PLACE.’ Please think the real meaning behind this apparently innocent comment ! To deal with Westerners, a person must be professional and holistic (oops this word came from somewhere !) because through their Western ways you never know what they really think of you !

    For O’Imbalance and HockBengTeoh456, yusof12, saxykumar, mnmn, etc the fellow travellers of the same ilk. All of you may think that I have hatred in my heart fo the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore. I do not have a single shred of hatred at all. The sensitivity you all showed to me on my true and factual comments on the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore is because you have all been brain-washed so you cannot see what is real and what is fiction. THE OTHER REASON WHY I BROUGHT FORTH THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE IS THAT I OBSERVED MOST OF MY FELLOW COMPATRIOTS KOW-TOW TO HIM WHO PUT UP ALL THE MAGIC SHOWS WITH THICK SMOKE AND OPAQUE MIRRORS. I DO NOT WANT MY FELLOW COMPATIROTS TO HAVE AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE CLEVER PEOPLE IN MALAYSIA THAN SINGAPORE AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS ONE OF THEM ! At the end of the day, Lee Kuan Yew has proven to be a lesser figure than our brilliant Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad because latter did not glamourise or try to glorify himself to please the super-powers. BUT HISTORY WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE BRILLIANT DEEDS OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WILL BE ENGRAVED IN PANTHEON OF WORLD CLASS HEROES. More books will be published by your hero soon !

    2. The most Senior Adviser on Communist Insurgency to the Federal Government was Tan Sri C. C. Too in the PDRM. Tun Musa Hitam recommended the Tan Sriship for him. Tan Sri Too gave me a monthly 1 hour briefing on Malaysia/Singapore Politics and Communism and the West from 1961 to 1992 when he died. He was closely associated with the Americans and the British. He predicted the state of Communism today !

    For O’Imbalance. You attacked me personally first. And you do not know anything about me. I am related by marriage to the First Finance Minister of Malaya, Tun H,S. Lee and to Lee Kuan Yew since October 1951 before the PAP was formed in 1955. I was offered to represent the MCA to stand in the Kuala Kubu State Constituency of Selangor in 1969 and Tun Tan Siew Sin’s own constituency of Batu Berendam which came with the post of Deputy Minister of Finance in 1973. Both my relative, the highest ranking Chinese Advisor on Communist Insurgency to the Federal Government and my friends in the UMNO Youth advised me not to stand. Eventually I understood the reason and I focussed on socio-economic issues. My politics has always ran counter to Singapore’s PAP since 1954 when up at the University the Singaporeans always pushed to be going for the top posts of the Malayan Association and they also performed badly academically. Eventually, I organised and blocked them as long as I was in the UK because they were always in the minority. From then onwards, I took notice of Malaysia/Siingapore politics through the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s until now. I HAVE NO HATRED TOWARDS ANYONE UNLIKE YOU O’IMBALANCE WHO PUTS WORDS INTO MY MOUTH. Please be factual and specific. Since you say I hate LKY, I repeat his brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore. Please tell me where is the hatred to be FAIR TO ME, A NATIONALIST WHICH YOU ARE NOT.
    The facts.
    1. Money was used as investment, a tool of Foreign Policy which killed, maimed and injured innocent men, women and children. Malaysia has no such blood on her hands. Vide. Thaksin and the Bangkok Riots.
    2. US$108 Billions (RM350 Billions) of the citizens Trust money was lost by the dysfunctional meritocratic pyramid of ‘yes’ men with the smartest fellow at the top in October 2008 on Wall Street. Vide. Channelnewsasia. Lee Kuan Yew. November 2008. All Singaporean Blogs. Financial Times London. Gillian Tett. April 2010. The Star. Seah Chiang Nee. Saturday Column.
    3. The 2-Child Family Policy of 1970s and 1980s. This is the killer. In 1959. Lee Kuan Yew came into power. Indigenous population 100%. 2013 – 63%. 2030 – 45%. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2013.
    4. Humanity and Multiculturalism not practised. Vide. Channelnewsasia 2011. The Curry Smell Tribunal. 2012. The 188 bus drivers strike. 2012. The toilet fights. etc.
    5. A perfunctory Judiciary which is know the world over. Vide. The fortunate Mr Chee. The unfortunate Tan Koon Swan. The Aussie and German drug mules. Dr Woffles Wu. Shaw. If the Police stopped at 1, he would not have been in trouble. But they stopped at 51. Poor girl ! etc.etc.
    6. 5000 pigs are imported daily. The flower nurseries contracts. King of the Road. The sale of Kim Eng Securities to Maybank. etc.etc.
    7. The highest paid Cabinet Ministers in the World for a one-street town. Vide. Warren Buffet.
    8. The creation of the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP in 1966. A political party has only one intention – to rule ! The DAP failed to deliver a conquered Malaysia to save Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy for over 47 long years. Malaysia is the KEY TO SINGAPORE’S SURVIVAL AS A VIABLE STATE without the control of Malaysia, Singapore forever will be in a limbo and affecting its viabiltiy in all sorts of unseen ways !
    9. Lee Kuan Yew was the Prime Minister from 1959 onwards. He is still there. During this period, our beloved Malaysia has had 6 democratically elected Prime Ministers. TO THE CREDIT OF ALL OUR PRIME MINISTERS ESPECIALLY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD, THEY ALL WILLINGLY PASSED THE POST TO ANOTHER AT THE RIGHT TIME and not hung around like your HERO LEE KUAN YEW.

    O’Imbalance. I am sorry to note your balls bearings have not been overhauled yet. WHERE IS MY HATRED FOR THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES ? I have already mentione at least TWO TIMES that I have the greatest respect and admiration for his DOUBLE STAR FIRST DEGREE IN LAW FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE. But my grades at the entrance to the best college BEAT HIM BECAUSE HE WENT INTO THE BOTTOM-MOST COLLEGE THROUGH THE BACK DOOR ! Because of my results, the Queen’s Chaplain at Windsor Castle who was the Vice-Chancellor of the Universtiy and Master of my College, personally recommended me based on my merits. There are lots of facts about life you do not know O’Imbalance ! I just studied and studied very hard to get in, O’Imbalance, and completed a 2 year course with 100 marks for each 4 subjects in 9 months, O’Imbalance ! Your hero , Lee Kuan Yew went into the Fitzwilliam House through the back-door. WHERE IS THE HATRED FOR LEE KUAN YEW, O’IMBALANCE ? It is all facts and facts !

    Sorry if i offended you. I only wanted to make the situation more humorous and not so serious or matter of life and death. Well i like BN too and the reason i like BN it because of Tun. Anyway liking and supporting a party and a person is not paramount and we cannot blindly support someone or something. If there a constructive criticism then we should say or do to help. Tun and Malaysia make mistakes too but they are excusable as he and the country did many good things too. Singapore and LKY may have 1,000,001 mistakes but they also done 1,000,001 good things but whatever it is, they are not all wrong. If we can take some of their good things and deploy here what so wrong about it. To win, we must win with moral which can be long-lasting and beneficial to majority. If a one-sided decision or a unnatural decision is implementation then that is no balance or yin and yang. The way you criticize or talk about LKY and singapore is with a lot of hatred but all you said may not be true to others. If you have some balance then you should write about some of the success of LKY and Singapore. Like for example why their money value is two and a half times higher than us and the world still trade with them. Everything people do or say have reasons and if possible you tell us the true feeling in your heart why you hate LKY so much. LKY mistakes should not effect you as you are in Malaysia and a Malaysian but we never know what is hidden agenda.

    I am sure i am younger than you and i am also sure you have more knowledge than me but that does not mean you are always right. It is people like your thinking (politicians) that make people vote opposition, it is those “one-sided”, “i know all”, ‘i say you do”, “i have more moral than you”, “my view is the best” and “my money is my money and your money is also my money” that make people think twice about voting BN and its partners. I appreciate BN that is why i write about how to improve BN and that does not mean i totally shut my mind, eyes, ears and mouth about the opposition. This is a BN supporters blog and i am here because i want BN to be or do better. Strategic planning is not hammering people and force people to listen, those days are over. Today we need leaders that have the wisdom & knowledge, dignity, clean, class or umph and lastly leadership by example. If BN continue to use the “jaguh kampung” and encourage “divide and rule” politics then the end is near. Dont look at others (singapore) too much we should be concentrating on our own behavior and correct them as we move along. Mr. Chan, with you knowledge and “connection” your help can be very useful if they are not so one-sided. Anyway i can see some light in the tunnel for BN as they are changing too. So change is the only way for BN, throw all those rubbish and start again. Start with sincerity for a better Malaysia. Use Petronas money wisely to help the raykat and the raykat will always be grateful and continue to vote BN. Tax free or lower tax for people than earn RM5k and below is one good example to kick start the new BN. Inflation is making the raykat suffer and the Govt must act. P.Pinang did the right thing to slow down inflation by giving cheaper quit rent and water and you complain it is too cheap. Where is you heart??? Isnt it “Govt for the people” better than “Govt for a few”.

    After sleeping soundly last night like your goodself, I suddenly had an idea arising out of troupes of the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP new Christians trying to fraternize with worshippers in mosques. You may recall these are the new Christian front-line troops of the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP which replaced the mahogany skinned gents who wore 555 singlets in the 1960s.
    The idea is this. With due respect that you are the Patron of our Perkim, I suggest that all mosques in the country have an air-conditioned briefing room where keen new Christians and others who want to fraternize with Muslims in mosques are briefed comfortably about the purity, strength and compassion of Islam. This is a good trade-off for those reported new Christians sneaking into mosques wearing Muslim dress, eating Muslim food and assume Muslim ways apparently, fasting even. This is good socio-religious intercourse by calling a spade, a spade.

    Ilmu juga terbahagi kepada ilmu yang dipelajari dan ilmu yang dikurniakan Allah s.w.t (ilmu laduni) – kisah Nabi Khidir a.s – tapi berhati hati dengan ini kerana banyak ajaran sesat berkait dari jalan tasawuf yang terpesong.

    For Balance who claims he is looking for a balancing machine to balance his/balls bearings. Firstly, I do not understand what you are talking about. Why are you feeling so personal about me ? Which of my comments hit a raw nerve in your imbalanced body ? Is it because I am supportive of my beloved BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties ? In either event you should mind your own business because this is what I fervently believe in since 1954 and should not attack me with sneaky snide remarks which I do not think is clever. I presume you were not playing with marbles or balls bearings in 1954 ! OK ? In the consideration of public affairs, please do not pick out bits and pieces to suit your argument if any, just like the Opposition. Look at the whole picture objectively if your head is not ruled by the emotions in your heart. I REALLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU PICK ON ME TO ATTACK ME PERSONALLY. Is it because you were not awarded a Tan Sriship or a Datoship may I ask ? I do not have one either. If you have one, I apologise for being so daring to ask.
    Or is it the truth about your hero or idol, the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore hurts ? Then, I love to repeat them for you again :-

    1. Lee Kuan Yew achieved a starred Double First in Law at the University of Cambridge in 1948. For this achievement, he has my deepest respect and admiration. OK ?

    2. The brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore shows how difficult it is to be good as an academician as well as to rule a one-street town which is Singapore with a population of 5 Millions. There is a yawniing gap between this two areas of endeavour. OK ? So much so, two Singaporean Ministers in 2013 have announced that for future promotions etc. selection of candidates will not be based on academic qualifications alone. But hidden talents will also taken into account. Since the 1970s, Singapore has been sending the best academics to Cambridge, Harvard etc. and none has surfaced to account for themselves in the normal way. This is the downfall. Pour le vous francais, O’Imbalance ? To be normal, this is one of the great attributes of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ! You do not agree, O’Imbalance ? Please do. And as for that much vaunted and flaunted meritocratic dysfunctional pyramid of ‘yes’ men with the smartest fellow on top, after losing officially US$108 Billions (RM350 Billions) in quick time in October 2008 on Wall Street, these dysfunctional fellows are like you too, O’Imbalance – they need their balls bearings re-balance and to this day there is no evidence of this taking place. I do not know whether these folks sleep well at night like you because of their huge investments in a new capital market called CHINA !

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. I sincerely hope you do not see red when I articulate these words of God.

    Tun,

    Izinkan saya menjawab musato.

    Sdr musato, terlebih dahulu saya mendoakan agar sdr pulih semula dengan cepat daripada kecederaan yang dialami kerana dilanggar motor.

    Sebenarnya, saya tak kisah mengenai isu Mujaddid termasuk sama ada daripada keturunan kicap Tamin dan Mahadi atau ada mana-mana orang Melayu yang mahu mengaku mereka adalah Mujaddid yang disebutkan.

    Persoalan saya ialah bagaimanakah golongan cerdik pandai agama Melayu mahu mentadbir negara jika perkara-perkara remeh seperti kebersihan pun mereka tidak dapat menguruskannya?

    Negara-negara Barat semakin hari semakin maju sedangkan kita orang Melayu masih bermimpi mengharapkan kedatangan Mujaddid?

    Terima kasih kerana mencadangkan buku AhlulBait (keluarga Rasulullah s.a.w) dan saya akan berusaha untuk membacanya.

    Salam Tun.

  51. musato Aug 16,2013 3:26 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Selamat Hari Raya kepada sentinel3.

    Terima kasih kerana mengajukan pertanyaan dan mengucap selamat datang dikala saya tengah berehat kerana eksiden dilanggar motor. Dapat MC 6 hari dengan ibu jari tangan kanan berbalut untuk 3 minggu kerana tulang terserpih di hujungnya.

    Semasa eksiden saya tunggu ambulans JPAM dan dapatkan x-ray di hospital besar.

    Saya kira blog chedet.cc tak pernah blacklisted saya. Saya cuma bercerita hal yang berkenaan bersabit dengan En Sufi pengawai khas Tun selaku admin di sini. Tujuan saya cuma ingin mengucap salam perkenalan setelah sekian lama. Memang perkara nama blogger saya terlepas pandang untuk diluluskan pernah berlaku sebelum ini kerana blog Tun banyak kali diserang virus.

    Baguslah saudara sentinel3 kalau berhajat untuk bermimpi indah. Mudah-mudahan dikurniakan Allah s.w.t.

    Tasawuf pada saya adalah ilmu Islam yang melibatkan kerohanian. Saya pun bukan pakar. Kerja saya cuma menguli roti dan membuat kek. Maka untuk berbahas secara rasmi mungkin saya tidak begitu pandai, cuma sekadar menaip mengikut apa yang ingin ditaip sahajalah.

    Tapi jangan risau kerana taipan saya ini ada penapisnya. Kalau bukan Tun,maka ada pakar lain yang mungkin menegur saya jika salah.

    Surah Al-Alaq pada pemahaman saya adalah surah pertama yang Allah s.w.t wahyukan kepada Muhammad Bin Abdullah dikala baginda diangkat menjadi Rasul. Allah mengajarkan pada baginda apa yang perlu difahamkan (dilakukan) untuk menjadi pemimpin dan Rasul.

    Melalui pembacaan saya Al-Quran dikatakan mempunyai beratus maksud pada ayatnya. Itu adalah pada sudut yang saya lihat dan faham.

    Untuk menjawab pertanyaan sentinel3 seterusnya saya difahamkan bahawa setiap 100 tahun akan dilahirkan mujaddid iaitu pembetul agama. Mujaddid ini muncul pada awal kurun iaitu diantara 30-35 tahun pertama hijrah. Ada dikatakan beliau akan muncul pada tahun 2012. Iaitu 30 tahun lebih sebelum mencapai 35 tahun awal hijrah pada kurun ini.

    Maka itulah muncul pelbagai rupa yang mengaku sebagai Putera Tamim dan Imam Mahadi.
    Seperti PANJI-PANJI HITAM LANGKASUKA NUSANTARA.

    Oleh kerana ia melibatkan Nusantara, eloklah untuk pembacaan lanjut saudara sentinel3 membaca buku AhlulBait (keluarga Rasulullah s.a.w) dan Kesultanan Melayu. Buku ini ada di perpustakaan awam.

    Ia berkenaan gelombang pertama dan kedua penghijrahan kaum kerabat yang bersabit dengan Rasulullah s.a.w (perihal mentadbir dan politik) ke Nusantara.

    Mujaddid pada kurun ini akan meneruskan tugas pada apa sentinel3 ajukan.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    I have never observed that a ruling party in the Mother of all Parliaments or the United States Congress kow-tow absolutely and easily to the Opposition. Our BN Government was just about to open completely the Pandora’s Box and let fly whatever to their own chagrin. I thought all these centuries of peace, stability and prosperity were due to the iron pyramid with the Sultans or the Prime Ministers on top with the goodies flowing down the slippery slope to us the proletariat at the bottom with outstretched hands. With the repeal of the ISA and the EO, the RCI on Sabah, the TPPA 18 negotiations with nothing to offer or to sell by our beloved Malaysia and other secret negotiations etc., I am left panting for oxygen at the very thought that these should be the prerogative of the Opposition in power if ever ! And we find the BN Government doing the work CUT OUT FOR THE OPPOSITION, OMG. Further, in we must have the RCI on Sabah, logically there should be a RCI on why some people are awarded the Tan Sriship or Datukship and why some are not. AND WHY 7 1/2 POOR SINGAPOREANS BECAME RINGGIT MULTIBILLIONAIRES DURING THE NEP and why no poor Malaysians became Singapore Dollar Multibillionaires excluding those who gained wealth through marriage !

    Tun, let us all fervently hope that in our unique and wonderful country there are much more than meet the eye, that those in authority reflect on options concerning the past, the present and the future. AND DEFINITELY CANNOT LISTEN TO THE OPPOSITION OR OUTSIDERS WHO WILL ONLY OFFER US THE POISONED CHALICE. This has been proven time and again. CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. No more. No less.

  53. mubarakchan Aug 16,2013 12:16 PM

    Tun

    There are certain moves concerning the administrative moves by the BN Government as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties which I do not comprehend.

    1. The RCI on Sabah. I view this as having a RCI to find out why certain people were awarded the Tan Sriship or the Datoship and why certain people were not. What does this Royal Commission hope to achieve through the waste of public money and time ? In the end, hopefully, no one is to be blamed for anything as this should be the job of the Opposition if they ever will get into power. There will be no end of self-immolation if the BN Government only listens to the Opposition and does its work for the Opposition whilst it is in Opposition !

    2. The repeal of the ISA and EO was done in such a hurry that no public hearing or debate was ever undertaken in a country which is still very much the Wild East to those of us who frequent the streets and Malls of our beloved country under the hot sun and humid conditions without a team of bodyguards in tow. There is no necessity to mull over new laws when the ISA and the EO have proven to be effective to protect the life and limbs of innocent men, women and children. Yet, the Trustees Ordinance 1949 and the 19th Century Bankruptcy Ordinance which affect the serious ambition and intention for the establishment of Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia remain unrevised to bring them on par with the modern World of commerce and finance. Now, the Attorney-General’s Chambers are loaded with all sorts of work concerning crime which could have been reduced or prevented by the ISA and the EO.
    Our beloved Malaysia now has no sound and efficient laws to provide security for its citizens which put the PDRM in stress to handle all these crimes which could have been contained by the ISA and the EO – leaving free for the white collar criminals to commit all sorts of criminal acts because of the 20th century Trustees Ordinance 1949 which has never been revised since 1949 unlike Singapore and Australia which undertook numerous revisions, and the Bankruptcy Act which both Singapore and Australia and the whole World up-dated as and when required.

    We seem to be doing the wrong things at the wrong time. Up-todate laws are an essential part of our general economy’s well-being within the parameters of Sovereignty, National Interest, Self-esteem !

  54. Dragniz Aug 16,2013 11:16 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Sorry for my previous comment regarding TPPA. You already express your opinion in previous post.

    As for me Tun, I’m agree with you. Until now, almost no partnership in the world benefited us and most of the time, we always kena ‘Tiaw’ with the deal offer by this outsiders.

    MITI should think carefully about this and its impact to our local market especially project that was tendered by our government and GLC’s.

    Recent news on secret negotiations by the BN with the legally defeated Opposition at the ballot box without any World Wide condemnation are disturbing to say the least. The BN behaves if correctly reported that it has no confidence with the big majority of the seats which they won hands down and sent the Opposition reeling into defeat after they spent for the very first time hundreds of millions of ringgits if not billions. AND YET THE OPPOSITION LOST BIG TIME. The very talk of any partnership with the Opposition will spell the death knell of the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties. The very nature of this unique land with its Malay biased and Bumiputra characteristics, heritage, legacy, religion, cultural, system of sultanates, etc will be destroyed if any tinkering is permitted to take place with a political set-up which has stood steadfastly since 1946 ! It is to the Malay sense of fairness and logic that the non-Malays are what they are to-day. And it should be seriously noted that the Malays as a grouping of 14 Millions in Malaysia is unique and are different from the Chinese and Indians as chalk and cheese AT THIS STAGE OF OUR DEVELOPMENT. To tinker with the present political set-up which not only proved that the Malays and Bumiputras are protected but also provided a haven to the otherwise stateless Chinese and Indians and all of 1949, it is tantamount to destroying one’s own house. To add further, our beloved Malaysia is still in peace, stability and prosperity after the General Elections of 5 May 2013. There is no chaos or riots even though there have been strenuous efforts to create some and failed. AND YET THERE WERE REPORTED ATTEMPTS TO OFFER SUCCOUR TO THE DEFEATED – defeated legitimately and fairly at the ballot box with the full approval of the World. I do not see the logic in this. This reminds me of the 18 rounds of fervent negotiations on the TTPA without realising that our beloved Malaysia has nothing to offer, sell and negotiate. And this happened after the Tun battled for 22 years to get a fair deal from the Republic of Singapore who has benefitted the most from us, on the 1962 Water Agreement. See how others when they ride the high horse treats our beloved Malaysia ? They follow the the laws to finest dot or comma. Yet, why the BN has to invite the Opposition to rule jointly when the BN won has down at fair and transparent General Elections with political parties which want DESPERATELY to destroy the BN ? As I write this, I cannot believe what I am commenting. NO WHERE IN THE DEMOCRATIC WORLD HAS A VICTORIOUS GOVERNMENT INVITED A DEFEATED OPPOSITION TO RULE A COUNTRY JOINTLY. This is the view of the majority and does not reflect personal feelings or interests. This latter has nothing to do WITH GOOD GOVERNANCE OF A COUNTRY.
    On the one hand, the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties is to safeguard the SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM of Malaysia, on the other, the Opposition has a loose association of the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP, the very rich PKR and the very pious PAS – EVEN THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE SAID RECENTLY THAT THIS PR WILL NOT WORK IN PRACTICE. He puts his bet on the BN – smart ? If an outsider sees this SO CLEARLY, WHY NOT AN INSIDER ?

    Sorry O’Imbalance who needs his/her ball bearings re-balanced ! I love my beloved BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties. This political grouping with its ambitions and aspirations are unique and tested in the whole wide World ! You may join BN too. It is not too late ! Shalom in Yeshua’s name ?

    For O’Imbalance whose ball bearings need balancing. In the 1960s, the Chief Superintendant, Tan Seng Keat, my friend, was sent to Honolulu, Hawaii to study how the sewage was treated. He found that no sewage was permitted to flow freely into the sea like in Georgetown, Pulau Pinang and it would be very expensive to adopt this Hawaiian method of waste proposal. And being Pulau Pinang people, it was recommended that the 19th century system be left in situ. Now O’Imbalance, I do not have to make personal snide remarks like you and I can tell the World the facts. For my sake, can you please whisper into the ears of your dear DAP friend the newly anointed Chief Minister to up-grade Pulau Pinang to the World Class Sewage Disposal System of the Republic of Singapore since you claim the BN did nothing ? I am sure he can do much with the RM180 Millions surplus for your sake’s.

    Mubarakchan,

    ha ha i am looking for a balancing machine to balance myself. If you are with the most important group at that time then you must be very sad that your recommendation was not implemented. I can feel the pain for you that as a very important personnel it must be very disappointed and humiliating that the (not so clever) Penang state govt did not listen to you.

    Can you tell us why the Federal govt did not give the fund to do such a very important recommendation from you?
    If such a very important recommendation given by the the very important group from the very important federal govt was not implemented, who is to blame ?
    Who or what group was in charge of the (not so important) penang state govt at that time? Was it LKY’s or DAP or PAP?
    If a very important group is so important surely someone would listen or project being push through?
    What if, the important group only want to blame others for important mistakes? or the important group just dont think it is important to help the people of Penang?

    Thousands or maybe millions people swam and enjoy Penang and it is not important but one (important) person commend about being itchy is the most important and true.

    Dont blame as there is a saying “one hand clap no sound” or “it needs two to tango”

    In 1972, i may be playing marbles or learning to chase girls but most importantly i was not in any important group that make very important mistakes but i need balancing now and i better go look for the balancing machine. I recommend alignment and maybe flushing too.

    having choices is better that not having any choice
    one man meat is other man poison

    HAPPY HAPPY

    Tun,

    Izinkan saya kesempatan untuk keluar terus daripada topik untuk mengulas tulisan musato.

    Saya tertarik dengan tulisan sdr musato yang saya petik seperti berikut: –

    “Cuma dalam tasawuf kita juga melalui peristiwa dan mengambil iktibar dari kisah kisah nabi seperti Nabi Sulaiman a.s (perihal jin), Nabi Yusuf a.s (perihal godaan wanita), Nabi Khidir a.s (perihal tindakan misteri) serta Rasulullah s.a.w (perihal mentadbir dan politik).

    Ramai ulama ulama dikurniakan kebolehan dalam menulis. Seperti kata kata dalam surah Al Alaq “Bacalah dengan nama Tuhanmu (Allah)”

    Sebenarnya saya ingin mengulas petikan tulisan sdr musato ini terlebih awal lagi sebelum ini tetapi disebabkan kekangan tugas yang sibuk dan cuti hari raya, saya hanya boleh berbuat demikian hari ini.

    Terlebih dahulu saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Aidilfitri kepada musato dan selamat datang kembali ke blog Tun setelah lama dikatakan kena blacklist.

    Saya juga gembira sdr musato telah kuat semula untuk menulis setelah mendapat mimpi yang indah.

    Alangkah indahnya jika saya juga mendapat mimpi yang serupa seperti sdr sebutkan supaya saya dapat mengurangkan kos perubatan daripada doktor pakar?

    Saya cuma ingin menyentuh mengenai surah Al Alaq iaitu “Bacalah dengan nama Tuhanmu (Allah)”.

    Saya mengakui walaupun saya bukan pakar agama seperti sdr musato tetapi bagi saya ayat tersebut mempunyai maksud yang luas iaitu permulaan bagi Nabi dan umatnya supaya membaca atau menimba ilmu pengetahuan.

    Bacalah bermaksud bukan sahaja membaca atau hafiz al-Quran malah menimba ilmu-ilmu lain supaya menjadi umat Islam yang berjaya di bumi Allah.

    Hafiz al-Quran bukan lesen untuk alim ulama mentadbir negara seperti yang dimimpikan oleh kebanyakan golongan cerdik pandai agama yang propembangkang.

    Kalau tidak silap saya, pernah diriwayatkan bahawa seorang pekebun pergi meminta nasihat Rasullullah SAW mengenai cara untuk menambah hasil kebun anggurnya bagaimanapun setelah diberikan nasihat oleh Rasulullah SAW, hasil kebun anggur pekebun itu masih tidak berubah.

    Akhirnya, Rasullullah sendiri memberitahu pekebun itu supaya dia (pekebun itu) sendiri berbuat sesuatu untuk menambah hasil kebunnya kerana dia (pekebun) adalah pakar dalam bidang tersebut.

    Sdr musato, cuba lihat rumah pegawai-pegawai masjid yang disediakan cantik dan indah untuk mereka oleh kerajaan atau pihak perumahan.

    Sebelum itu, perlu saya tegasnya di sini, saya bukanlah seorang ahli politik atau menyertai mana-mana parti politik termasuk UMNO seperti kata mat salleh non partisan.

    Cuba tengkok kawasan di sekeliling rumah mereka (pegawai masjid) yang penuh dengan lalang dan sampah sarap yang tidak terurus?

    Lihat pula tandas di surau-surau dan masjid terutama yang dikuasai oleh imam dan jawatankuasa masjid yang propembangkang, kebanyakannya kotor dan ada yang meloyakan makmum untuk menggunakannya.

    Ada tempat wuduk di masjid yang dibiarkan air bertakung kerana saluran airnya tersumbat sehingga lantai dipenuhi kekotoran yang datang daripada longkang.

    Sdr musato, apa yang saya sebutkan ini mungkin perkara remeh, tetapi jika perkara remeh-temeh pun para pegawai masjid kita tidak boleh menguruskan dan mengatasinya bagaimana pula mahu mentadbir negara?

    Ajaran agama Islam mementingkan mengenai kebersihan, bagaimanapun kebersihan jauh sekali dapat dilihat di rumah-rumah pegawai-pegawai masjid yang saya sebutkan.

    Bagi saya, perkara ini berlaku kerana satu, mungkin pegawai-pegawai masjid kita alpa mengenai kebersihan disebabkan terlalu sibuk menyiapkan teks mencerca dan memaki-hamun kerajaan dalam khutbah Jumaat mereka atau dua, kerana tidak mengendahkan mengenai kebersihan diri dan alam sekitar sedangkan kebersihan itu dituntut dalam Islam.

    Sdr musato, bagaimanakah pegawai-pegawai agama mahu mentadbir negara jika di jabatan-jabatan agama, meja pegawai-pegawainya hanya ada tikar sembahyang dan pegawai-pegawainya sentiasa hilang mungkin kerana terlalu sibuk berpolitik di kantin?

    Cuba sdr lihat pula di meja kerani pejabat mahkamah sivil yang penuh dengan fail sehingga menggunung tingginya.

    Saya malu dengan sikap pegawai-pegawai agama kita jika dibandingkan dengan pegawai-pegawai di jabatan kerajaan lain apatah lagi jika dibandingkan dengan sektor swasta.

    Saya boleh menulis dengan panjang lebar lagi mengenai kelemahan golongan cerdik pandai agama kita bagaimanapun masa tidak mengizinkan saya berbuat demikian.

    Beginikah orang yang mahu kita lantik menjadi pemimpin dan mentadbir sebuah negara Islam?

    Salam Tun.

    For O’Imbalance. I was part of an important Federal Government delegation to meet the Chief Minister of Pulau Pinang in 1972 after all the politicians kissed and pledged to create a new Malaysia under the new BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties – the brain child of our distinguished Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak. Where were you, O’Imbalance ? Throughout the discussion, the Chief Minister kept requested for Federal aid for a full hour. At the end, I raised the question of why the State Government did not raise quit rent and assessments – the lowest in the country. There were red faces all round. The discussion ended. Where were you O’Imbalance ? That was 1972 where were you O’Imbalance ? Please talk with facts and not on upstaging others with cheeky snide remarks. And now Pulau Pinang is still the same. An open sewage system which flows out to the sea and all the sewage from Georgetown floats to Batu Ferringhi. The Senior Tutor of my college commented that his skin felt itchy after a swim at Batu Ferringhi in the 1980s. I could only smile and said nothing. Where are your facts, O’Imbalance who needs balancing your bearings ? And why the State Government of Pulau Pinang does not pay something decent to the Kedah State Government for raw water, you may ask your dear friend the Chief Minister of Pulau Pinang ? Where are your facts to bolster your snide remarks. O’Imbalance ?

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya tak bermaksud merendah rendahkan keupayaan Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, cuma telah dijelaskan dengan terang dalam Al Quran bahawa pemimpin itu perlunya kepada kesihatan tubuh badan.

    Pengalaman saya sendiri ketika menulis di sini juga memerlukan tahap kesihatan yang amat tinggi.

    Telah beberapa kali saya berusaha berhenti menulis, sehinggalah pada suatu hari saya menangis disebabkan tidak tahan lagi dan lantas bertanyakan Allah s.w.t di dalam hati, apakah yang Allah perbuatkan pada diri saya.

    Dan terlenalah saya selepas menitiskan airmata.Kemudiannya saya bermimpi.

    Dipendekkan cerita, rupa rupanya Rasulullah s.a.w yang mengubati saya.

    Alhamdulillah kesihatan tubuh badan saya bertambah baik dan lebih mampu menempuh perjalanan mentadbir dan menulis.

    Perlunya pemimpin kepada kesihatan tubuh badan ini ada pada surah Al Baqarah ayat 247.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Kindly, I need Tun opinion regarding TPPA (Trans Pacific Strategic Partnership) and its impact to local Malaysian company.

    Thank you Tun.

  63. mubarakchan Aug 14,2013 2:00 PM

    Tun

    Horror of horrors ! The NSTP today publishes the 2nd part of the Government’s Treatise on the TPPA ‘Government addressing TPPA concerns.’ It clearly states that the countries in it are Australia, Canada, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam. Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore are client States of the United States of America. Vietnam is there for long term strategic reasons against China. I do not know why Malaysia is involved in 18 fervent rounds of negotiations when our beloved Malaysia has nothing to sell and to negotiate. Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines and Indonesia with China are out. All claim they can JOIN LATER.
    From the Article, Question. What is the approach taken by the Government in safeguarding the interest of the Bumiputras and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) ?……..The government is well aware that there are concerns regarding the sustainability of SMEs in light of increased competition from large international corporations. As such, we are addressing these concerns in the TPPA negotiations. For example, the government has forwarded a position to enable SMEs to be integrated into the regional supply and value chains, and ensure that there are transitional arrangements in place to facilitate SMEs to adapt to increased competition. The government will also ensure that large corporations do not abuse their positions….
    My rebuttal to the above.

    1. Whoever wrote this article has a MIND-SET AS THOUGH HE/SHE IS IN A LARGE WESTERN DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY OF AT LEAST 50 MILLIONS. We are our beloved Malaysia with people being gunned down in the streets every day. And it is quietly known that we are very short of experienced people to push whatever programmes the Government proposed !
    2. What happens to all those Bumiputra or non-Bumiputra businesses which hold FOREIGN FRANCHISES TO MANUFACTURE. Overnight, the principals will pull back and the factories close down leading to massive unemployment !
    3. Enforcement by the Government is time consuming and slow which is definitely not suitable for a nascent developing country. If enforcement ever takes place, all the Bumiputra and non-Bumiputra SMEs would have gone bankrupt. And Tun’s 22 years of hard-work to build up the Malay middle-income group with the expanded non-Malay group would have GONE UP IN SMOKE OVERNIGHT.
    4. ONLY ONE COUNTRY BENEFITS FROM THE SIGNING OF THE TPPA BY OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND THAT IS SINGAPORE. Singapore lost its GNP fizz in the 21st century. She requires 7% to show the World she is tops. But unfortunately with the coming of the Web and all its benefits, the 19th century trade methods adopted successfully in the 20th century by Singapore became illusive in the 21st century to this day. SINGAPORE IS NOW DESPERATE TO EVEN THINGS OUT THROUGH THE FLOODING OF GOODS FROM HER INTO THE MALAYIAN OPEN MARKET AFTER THE TPPA IS SIGNED BY MALAYSIA. The best GNP Singapore can do now is 3.5% or 50% down from a bubbly 7% of the 20th century.
    5. THE SOLE BENEFICIARY OF THE TPPA AS SIGNED BY MALAYSIA WILL BE SINGAPORE with the DOUBLE BENEFIT of finishing off the BN GOVERNMENT AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES AT THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS. Are we the BN going to say sayonara to all the folks ?

  64. mubarakchan Aug 14,2013 1:17 PM

    Tun

    For HockBengTeoh456. Your 56. shows that the Chinese in Pulau Pinang want to have the lowest cost of living and to make the most profits. You remember the 1967 riots of Pulau Pinang ? Because of these 2 reasons, there are still open monsoon drains in Georgetown today and these flow untreated to the open sea which carries all the Georgetown sewage to all the beaches on the island like Batu Ferringhi. The second reason is that the State Government has always relied on Federal funding. Hence, to this day, the water supply is dependent on Kedah. With a surplus of RM150 Millions, how is the State Government of Pulau Pinang going to emulate the Republic of Singapore, HockBengTeoh456 ?
    And my motive is straightforward – to lay bare the facts concerning your heroes and icons. No more. No less.

  65. HBT456 Aug 14,2013 8:11 AM

    51. No motive wrt TPPA.

    52. Due to weather and lifestyle changes with escalating living cost, Malaysian manufacturing companies have no choice but move their plants to emerging country with huge population to get cheap labour to stay competitive domestically and globally.

    53. One day, we are just like singaporeans whereby we do not opt for labour intensive investment, we prefer to go for trading via export and import.

    54. I am just only a voter voicing out my views as malaysian.

    55. If mubarak chan called that as rojak mixed, then, its rojak mixed lor.

    56. What is your motive here, mubarak chan, I will leave it for Tun to think again can bn survives via I know whom, not I know how concept when we have so many political choices out there?

  66. mubarakchan Aug 13,2013 6:28 PM

    It is not only surprising. It is frightening that in 2013, two important articles on the Trans-Pacific Partnership were published in the Star 5 August 2013 and in the NSTP 13 August 2013. These 2 articles frighten me because the points raised to benefit our beloved Malaysia are absolutely irrelevant to the real socio-economic situation as regards the production of exportable goods by Malaysian industrialists if any for the outside World which encompasses the TPPA countries which are all developed except for Vietnam and Peru. Thailand and Indonesia are not in it so is China. It is frightening because BOTH ARTICLES TRIED TO CREATE THE ELEMENT OF FEAR THAT IF MALAYSIA DOES NOT SIGN NOW, WE WILL GET LESSER TERMS LATER. My succinct question is HOW TO NEGOTIATE TO SELL OUR MANUFACTURED GOODS IN THESE HUGE DEVELOPED MARKETS WHEN WE HAVE NO SUCH GOODS TO SELL ? By signing now, we let in a flood of manufactured goods overnight from Singapore which effectively makes it unattractive for our entrepreneurs to produce the same goods . So forever and ever, we are slaves to the imported foreign made products like under the British when we had only British goods to buy. By signing the TPPA now, all our Malaysian owned factories producing goods will be snuffed out. Unemployment, and cost of living shoots up with the depreciation of the Ringgit and subsidies will be cut, etc.etc. I am sorry to say I am frightened by the jingoism, the generalizations, the speculative optimism the hearsays without substantive figures based on the value and volume of the import-export trade to bolster the pro-TPPA arguments which are flawed.
    I say it once again that the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties has a high probability of losing the 14th General Elections if the TPPA is signed anytime soon. At least, the next 2 years, with a down-turn in world trade all manner of goods are eveready to flood into the open Malaysian Market post TPPA signinig or any open Market as world wide demand slackens.
    I honestly cannot see how our beloved Malaysia got entangled in 18 fervent negotiations on something which does not benefit us one wee bit or iota at the moment.
    What is the hurry ? What is the motive ?

    For HockBengTeoh456. Sorry. Addition to rebut your 49. Unless you were in a slumber during the past 48 hours, the very rich PKR has put out feelers to join the solid BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties. And your hero, the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore, has suggested to the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP to join the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties and leave the PR !!! There will be lots of jostling and scrambling to be the wanton bride/s. And the Red MCA ? This is the $64,000 question.

How far the great has fallen ! Be sensible HockBengTeoh456, how can a one street town tell a full-fledged Nation of 27 Millions which stretches 1,200 miles from the Straits of Melaka and the South China Sea -TO SUCK EGGS ? AND WE HAVE BEEN LIVING IN PEACE, HARMONY AND PROSPERTIY FOR CENTURIES unless you did not notice this in Pulau Pinang.
    49. Hey ! HockBengTeoh456, we Malaysians have no INFERIORITY COMPLEX ANYMORE now because we know the real facts about your heroes and icons. Soon, THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW OUR DEMOCRACY, MALAYSIAN DEMOCRACY AS PRACTISED HOLISTICALLY IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.
    50. You got all your view of Malaysian Politics mixed up like a rojak.

    44. I bid goodbye to mahathirism, not Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, and selamat hari raya aidilfitri, Tun.

    45. Let pak lah speaks his thoughts reflected in the awakening.

    46. He is just only a product of mahathirism of favouritism chosen not based on skill, but to maintain malay vote banks to avoid split in umno.

    47. Please dont get mad, show our gratitude for his courage to speak up, let the readers be the judge.

    48. The latest book launched on Mr Lee Kuan Yew’one man’s might be his last piece, and his views are valuable to a small country like Malaysia which is vulnerable to global crisis, lifestyle transformation and weather changes.

    49. Democracy is not about what we think, is about how people will judge us.

    50. MCA and Gerakan have lost Chinese votes, but Karpal Singh will be a factor in loosing many Chinese votes in next general election if he thinks he csn replace Mr Lee Kuan Yew in Penang.

    Interesting days are here again. With the Red Card now being held tightly by the MCA and the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore, exhorting nearly openly for the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP to do something meaningful after 47 long years of doing nothing but to contemplate their navels and quarrel with others, the leadership of the DAP is now in a dilemma as judged by the knee-jerk reaction of their 2nd and 3rd tier leaders. The leadership is caught between a ROCK AND A HARD PLACE due to their inferior intellect to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew. What to do ? Their spiritual leader, Lee Kuan Yew and their spiritual homeland is Singapore. Maybe for the very first time that apart of petty quarrels everyday with others, the DAP leadership that our beloved Malaysia and its politics have entered the strategic geo-political world or maybe they are still mired in PETTY QUARRELS as befitting their leadership. Are they, the DAP, going to keep the brillliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore and AMERICA waiting ? Would they dare ? Now that the MCA holds the important Red Card, China, is the DAP going to counterbalance this virtual strength with the Blue Card=PAP=Lee Kuan Yew=America. What is going to happen to the 30% hard core Chinese in DAP if something radical like this takes place ? Are they going to join the Red MCA ?
    One thing for sure, the Malaysian Chinese who is not involved in this fun and games will remain loyal Malaysian Chinese. As Tun has rightly pointed out ‘ A week is a long time in Malaysian Politics !’ What is going to all those hush-hush agreements between the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP and the very rich PKR and the very pious PAS ? Are these agreements going to be like the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore which is now worth only 1 sen for 1000 gallons, EVEN IN POLITICS ? Akan Datang, ladies and gentlemen !

    I have read the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore book which is something like the Pears’ Encylopedia as crafted by him. As President Nixon said,’ A Big man in a small place !’ All manner of people sought his advice and opinion whose normal and candid advice is what a person would expect anyway from a normal educated person in the West. But they forgot one thing that Singapore is a one-street town with a full Cabinet of Ministers which could rule a country of 50 Millions and a full-fledged military with spies to boot. The important points which were indirectly raised were that the PAP/DAP slogan of 50 years ‘Malaysia for Malaysians’ is flawed taking this into cognizance, I doubt LKY can shout, ‘Singapore for Singaporeans’ at Hong Lim Green today. BUT I READ ALL THESE AS POIGNANT HIDDEN ADVICE TO THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP TO CONSIDER JOINING THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES AFTER CONTEMPLATING THEIR NAVELS BY DOING NOTHING FOR 47 LONG YEARS – the main purpose of a political party is to rule. WITH EVENTS LIKE THE MCA’S VISIT TO BEIJING, WE CAN NOW DIVIDE THE CHINESE INTO 3 GROUPS i) THE REDS (MCA=CHINA), THE BLUES (DAP=PAP=AMERICA) and the MALAYSIAN CHINESE. HAS LKY=AMERICA OUTMANEUVERED THE RED CHINESE (MCA=CHINA) ? FOR THOSE WHO ARE STILL NOT AWARE OF THE STRATEGIC GEO-POLITICAL IMPORTANCE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WHICH ASTRIDES FOR 1,200 MILES FROM END TO END AND ASTRIDES THE STRAITS OF MELAKA AND THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, this struggle to control , influence or conquer us has now FINALLY REACHED OUR SHORES ! OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA THE MOST IMPORTANT CHOKE POINT IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD IS NOW IN PLAY !
    THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES NOW HAS 3 GROUPS OF CHINESE TO CONSIDER eg. The Red Chinese (MCA=CHINA), the Blue Chinese (DAP=PAP=AMERICA) and the MALAYSIAN CHINESE. I cheekily suggest the BN takes up the 2 brides, the Red one and the Blue one or NONE AT ALL after due and careful consideration.
    This is the latest news, ladies and gentlemen. A week is a long time in Malaysian Politics so said the Tun. AKAN DATANG.

    Salam Tun,

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri !

    Just to share the meaning of fitrah as explained by the Sufi Master, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri :-

    The root meaning for innate (fitrah) is ‘to crack’. The child breaks into this world with a cry of despair at being dislodged from the aqueous, contented, mild situation of the preceding nine months, where it knew only the mind of the mother’s heart. Suddenly the child is ejected into a gaseous environment and disconnected from that umbilical situation. Immediately the programmed unfoldment of the self begins. The child is born wanting to connect. The first connection is physical. The first worship is to maintain the body — that is the temple that the child knows innately, and the mother’s breast is the object which fulfills that need. In time, if one grows in consciousness, one recognizes that the breast is the earth from which we take our physical sustenance.

    For Farihan Han. Under the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore, it was/is 0.03 sens per 1000 gallons. Cost to Singapore = S$ 0.03cts per 1000 gallons. Exchange rate RM1 = S$1 in 1962. Now, the exchange rate is S$1 = RM2.50. Therefore, SINGAPORE PAYS ONLY
    S$ 0.0125 cts per 1000 gallons. And Malaysia pays Singapore for the processed water which is tantamount to Malaysia pays Singapore to give Singapore raw water (unprocessed)

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Kebelakangan ini nampaknya ramai benar yang mengaku imam mahadi atau pemuda bani tamim. Kemudiannya mengaku Sultan Kedah dan menganggu istana negara.

    Yang lepas ‘imam mahadi’ dah meninggal dunia sebab cedera ditembak.

    Dua tiga hari lepas, panji hitam langkasuka nusantara pula ditangkap. Ketuanya dianggap sebagai pemuda bani tamim. Sebagai penyedia tapak untuk kebangkitan imam mahadi.

    Kesemua kisah ini berkaitan dengan cerita misteri di mana keturunan inilah yang dicari cari oleh zionis selama ini.

    Kerana itulah zionis sibuk menghuru harakan dunia semata mata ingin menghapuskan kebangkitan pemuda tamim dan imam mahadi.

    bersambung…gi sembahyang raya dulu.

    Selamat hari raya lanun rawa-bahasa.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Assalamualaikum dan Selamat Hari Raya Tun sekeluarga,

    Recent events in Egypt. I’m glad most of the international community support for the release of Mr. Morsi and for Egypt to quick transition back in to the democratic path instead of a military rule.

    For once, countries like Iran, Turkey, Germany, France, the EU, UK, the African countries and even UN and the US senators are in agreement on this. It is simply amazing.

    If these countries who are always bickering can reach an agreement with how to settle the Egypt crisis, it should send a strong message to the Egypt interim government and the army that what they are doing now i.e detaining Mr. Morsi and his aides, clamping down on the media that dose not support it, abolish the constitution and suspend the Syura council, etc is simply wrong. A mistake.

    The Egyptian have tried to justify the coup by saying that millions went to the streets to protest against Mr. Morsi. How can they justify that is what the Egyptian people want by simply looking at how large the protests are. Even if there are millions who protested, there are 82 million Egyptians. 1 million over 80 million is just 1% of the population. Does 1% protestors represent the 82 million Egyptians?

    You were right when you said the root cause of this whole mess in Egypt is that those that lost in the election cannot accept defeat. They cannot believe that they were defeated by the Muslim Brotherhood. They could not win in the elections, so they turn to the army to take over the government.

    This is what democracy is about, the majority rules, and the minority must follow. If the minority does not want to follow what the majority wants, then this is what happened in Egypt.

    Now, the minority interim government wants to say that international diplomacy has failed. Simply because the international community does not agree with the interim government, then diplomacy is a failure?

    Clearly the minority interim government is not doing what is right, but doing what it believes to be right. . If the army care what the people want, why is it being selective of hearing only what some Egyptians want but does not want to hear what the Muslim Brotherhood want? The Muslim Brotherhood are Egyptians too.

    Maybe the interim government is giving a signal that it is preparing for something massive to disperse the Muslim Brotherhood sitting by saying that diplomacy has failed. They better be careful what they do, because what they are about to do does not have the support of the international community.

    If more lives are lost, they will be condemned by the international community and will be outcasts. In time, they may even be brought upon the International court as war criminals.

    I would advise for the Egyptian Interim government and the army to think very carefully before they do something they will regret in the future.

    For Saudara Amin Tan. Where Singapore went wrong on their horrendous loss of October 2008 was the fact that those 2 personalities who had the power over the dysfunctional ‘yes’ men who crafted the ‘yes’ papers did not at anytime worked or lived in the West especially amongst the Jewish community which they dealt with so fervently in their dealings. They do not understand the refinements of speech and behaviour of these clever and smart people. The second mistake was that as a sovereign nation, Singapore, should not have involved herself with the hoi-polloi of Wall Street or the City of London. The smoothest gents in the World are here in these 2 places. And Singapore has no natural resources and has the parameter of SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM to observe. Their investments from 2000 went out of line after being very conservative from the 1970s. Singapore should have gone for control of the key industries or utilities of the G20 countries and gold at that juncture. She would have controlled Malaysia and the World together with the U.S., China and India. And at home, a brand new industry of gold, gold bonds, banks, etc.etc. But that is all under a bridge now. But now they are scrambling to keep afloat both in human and monetary terms.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

  87. amin tan Aug 7,2013 9:21 PM

    Dear Tun,
    Please allow me to quote Mr Mubarachan as below,

    [We do not have to look far. For those who admire Singapore’s much flaunted and vaunted meritocratic pyramid of ‘yes’ men with the smartest fellow at the top. See how these ‘yes’ men lost US$108 Billions of its citizens Trust money in October 2008 on Wall Street by writing beautifully crafted ‘yes’ papers to the Boss. In 2013, 2 Ministers announced that in future, promotions etc. will not be ENTIRELY dependent on academic qualifications alone but also hidden talents. The many brilliant scholars which Singapore sent to Cambridge, Harvard etc failed in the ultimate test of LIFE !]

    Dear Mr Mubarakchan,
    Let me explain the background of the US108 billion fiasco by Singapore and my analysis and conclusion. For a small country, to lose that much of money in an offshore investment in the USA must be frightening and painful, to say the least. Singapore was in the loop and was among the elitist whisper group of the big timer fund managers and investors of the west. The Project was financing of landed properties in the US. Indeed, I have seen the sale brochure of the housing project in the hotel I stayed when I attended the Graduation ceremony of my Second son in the US in December 2005. Country home built on 5 acres to 500 acres of land with flowing spring was offered for US200K to US500k. This very project was the grave yard of many giant financial institutions of the West, among the many notable names were The Bank of America, Lehman Brothers and Citi Bank. The networking of these financial leaders across the world in Japan, Britain, Germany and also Singapore means they all took the hit and each and every one of them understood the risk of offshore investment.
    It was the time the US Administration was under Mr BUSH junior. The President approved a financing policy of sub prime lending. This is suicidal. A truck driver with monthly wage of USD2k could borrow USD500k to buy a country home. Many sub prime(under qualified) borrowers defaulted and the properties went under the auction hammer(lelong). Thus the chain of losses across the Western world. Malaysia and China were not involved because we did not belong to their gang and were not privy to their misfortune.

    We are now at the lowest point how far can we go down further?

    I am sorry to be so long winded Saudara Amin. Actually, to present a proper case against the TPPA will take at least 3 months. This is no laughing matter. To take a short cut, I invite you to compare the Empire Preference which was applied when the British were here to the TPPA. In practice, it is the same thing with a difference. Under the Empire Preference, Malaya only imported British manufactured goods like Brylcreem, Horlicks, Bovril, Huntley & Palmer, Cadbury etc. No foreign goods imported except Coca Cola, Lindeteves Jacoberg etc. Malaya did not make anything.
    WITH THE TPPA (Empire Preference), goods from the TPPA countries flood in and finish off our nascent industries owned by the middle-income group which in turn employs the working people. In the beginning, this is not noticeable. But suddenly, the whole mess boils up and then it will be TOO LATE FOR THE BN TO RECTIFY ANYTHING AND THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES HAD EFFECTIVELY KILLED THEMSELVES OFF BY THEIR OWN HAND IN SIGNING THE TPPA AT THE NEXT 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS.
    I will retract all my objections if a worthy, like the US of A can guarantee that the BN wins the 14th General Elections if the BN signs the TPPA – no chopping off cockerel’s head in temple.

    For Amin Tan. I commented that I was sleeping soundly until after 2003, when information trickled out that our beloved Malaysia was losing real estate, money, assets etc in peacetime and not through losing a War. I was very happy how successive BN Governments safeguarded our SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM. But when I heard what our beloved Malaysia had been losing, this will only lead to all of us LOSING OUR WHOLE BELOVED MALAYSIA and hence I arrived at this distinguished Blog and thought out and worked out all the intricacies, the conspiracies and fun and games which led all of us to the present conundrum. AND I SAY AGAIN THAT IN THE NAME OF PRUDENCE THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS SHOULD BE BETTER LEFT UNSAID and only argue on facts and statistics. For your edification only, Saudara Amin, there is no secret in Malaysia or Singapore. And there is no smoke there is no fire.

  92. mubarakchan Aug 7,2013 12:26 PM

    Tun

    For Amin Tan. It is good, very good that you raised a lot of questions on the TTPA. And you take the view that I am xenophobic which is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as ‘ intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries.’ I am sorry to say that you used the wrong word on me. I am not xenophobic but I AM A NATIONALIST. Now, I refer you to the Oxford Dictionary. I have been a NATIONALIST SINCE 1954. I do not like our beloved country Malaysia to be bullied or taking advantage of in any way or made the butt of jokes or comments. WE DEAL WITH EVERYONE ON FAIR AND LEVEL PLAYING GROUND. OK. Mr Amin. Now on the TTPA .
    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS NOT INDUSTRIALISED. SO WE HAVE NO MANUFACTURED GOODS TO SELL TO THESE HUGE ACCLAIMED MARKETS OF THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. OK. MALAYSIA SUBSISTS MAINLY ON THE SALE OF PETROLEIUM PRODUCTS AND PALM OIL (an item which I urged the Government to focus on in 1972 because it could overtake petroleum in due course. It did.) At the beginning of the NEP, the Malays had only 2% of the business in Malaysia, the British 70%, the Chinese 25% and the rest 3%. This is the reason why the was a political conundrum in the 1960s when the then Government practised Currency Board policies – you spend what you earned as applied to all British Colonies. OK. Fast trek to the 1980s. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad through his foresight and inclination raised the MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP as his first priority, followed by the tremendous putsch into infrastructure development with the help of the private sector because the JKR was too slow and WE WERE ALREADY 10 YEARS BEHIND IN THE NEP BEGINNING 1971 DUE TO THE UNTIMELY DEMISE OF TUN ABDUL RAZAK and the interregnum period with TUN HUSSEIN ONN. OK. FAST TREK TO 2013, WITH THE FOCUS ON BUILDING UP THE MIDDLE INCOME GROUP OF MALAYSIANS, THE TUN NEED TO NURTURE THIS EXPANDING GROUP WITH GOODIES WHICH WILL SUSTAIN THEM. SO THE TUN SUSTAINED THEM BY SUPPORTIVE BUSINESSES OF ALL KINDS THROUGH THE GOVERNMENT – BIG AND SMALL. SOME FAILED. SOME SUCCEEDED. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THE MALAYS ONLY CONTROL A BIG BUSINESS IN SIME DARBY IN 1976 AND I AM PROUD OF THIS MY CONCEPT AND SOME OF MY ASSISTANCE TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL. AT THAT TIME EVEN NOW, MY VIEW WAS THAT SIME DARBY SHOULD BE WHAT TEMASEK IN THE 21ST CENTURY -buy control of important entities in the West to uplift our goals here in Malaysia. This is still not too late. OK. NOW YOU MAY DISCERN THAT THE MALAYS ONLY ENTERED BIG BUSINESS IN 1976 THROUGH SIME DARBY BUT UNFORTUNATELY SIME HAS NOW BEEN TURNED INTO AN ELEGANT BRITISH TYPE OF TRADING HOUSE CONTROLLED BY A TRUST – SO NO RISK NO GAIN ! OK. NOW IN 2013, ON THE ONE HAND WE HAVE PETRONAS AND ON THE OTHER, SIME DARBY RIGHT DOWN TO THE BELACAN MAKER OF MELAKA, ALL THESE MALAY BUSINESSES AND THE NON-MALAY BUSINESSES NEED SUPPORT UNTIL WHEN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA MANUFACTURES PRODUCTS AS AN INDUSTRIALISED NATION AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE. At the moment, Malaysia is not industrialised because we have no industrialist of note. The last guy who claimed to be one who boiled brown sugar to white has already left these shores long ago. I should know I was the last industrialist who made textiles in the 1970s and both Taiwan and South Korea became industrialised states from the making and growth of textiles helped by the Americans.
    Why the TPPA will finish of our basic economy and the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties is this ? YOU NOW KNOW THAT MALAYSIA IS NOT A DEVELOPED AND INDUSTRIALISED STATE. SO WE HAVE NOTHING TO SELL. WE HAVE NASCENT BUMIPUTRA AND NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES WHICH SUPPORT THE BN GOVERNMENT AND PROVIDE THOUSANDS OF JOBS AND THESE OWNERS ARE THE MIDDLE-INCOME GROUP WHICH NEEDS TO BE SUSTAINED AND BE SUCCESSFUL FOR A NORMAL AND ORDERLY MALAYSIAN SOCIETY. WE MUST CREATE AND SUSTAIN NORMALITY. OK. SO MALAYSIA’S EXPORT PRODUCTS PETROLEUM PRODUCTS AND PALM OIL DO NOT NEED THE TPPA AS THESE ARE EASILY SOLD IN THE OPEN WORLD MARKET. OK.
    BY SIGNING THE TPPA, ALL MANNER OF GOODS FROM ALL MANNER OF COUNTRIES WILL FLOW OVERNIGHT INTO THE OPEN AND FREE MARKET OF MALAYSIA THE ONLY SIGNATORY OF THE TPPA NEXT TO VIETNAM LIKEWISE – FROM SINGAPORE. AT THIS JUNCTURE, MALAYSIA DOES NOT PRODUCE ANY MANUFACTURED PRODUCT WHICH IS OF SUFFICIENT VOLUME OR LOW PRICE TO COMPETE ANYWHERE BECAUSE OF THEIR SMALL SIZE, COST ETC. BY SIGNING, MALAYSIA’S MARKET IS A FREE FOR ALL and what is the trade-off, Saudara Amin ? What manufactured goods we could sell in volume to the good US of A ? NONE. With the entry of manufactured goods at all sorts of prices to gain a foothold, our Bumiputra businesses and non-Bumiputra businesses are forced to close and unemployment rises. Cost of living, inflation, depreciation of the ringgit (because we have to pay the countries of origin of these imported goods in increasing volume) Government subsidies will be removed leading to a HUGE OUTCRY because the Government has no money from revenues. The whole political financial conundrim will snow ball into the DEFEAT OF THE BN AT THE NEXT 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS.
    CAN ANYONE SAY THAT BY SIGNING THE TPPA THE BN WILL BE GUARANTEED TO WIN THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS ?
    Saudara Amin. I have done all manner of important businesses at the top except property development on both sides of the Causeway. I was the first to build the first condos in Singapore in 1965 and the first Malaysian to plant oil palms in 1966 which were restricted by the British. I know what I am talking about as a NATIONALIST NOT A XENOPHOBIC. I am all for free trade with all if the terms are fair and not life threatening. BUT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS DEFINITELY NOT READY FOR THE TPPA AT THE MOMENT MAYBE LATER.

    Dear Mr Mubarak Chan.
    I believed that you are a Dr.Hence Dr always present their fact’s differently to Makcik and to us fellow brethren ‘a little factual’.
    “Makcik ada jangkitan kuman dalam paru-paru”.
    Not..
    Dear Makcik..I prognosed that you have lung’s infection that is pneumonia..
    How much kick does it gives to the professional’s seeing the startled look of the makcik,pontificating and gloat in the guise of the ‘noble’ profession….Ahem…:)

    Thus most “4th boy’s of Singaporean counterpart” is not stupid.They have presented them correctly but there always the ‘final says’ from their American counterpart.
    I do not wish to elaborate but the Singaporean were held by their ball’s by their American “Tuan Penasihat” and if there is a fall should be taken,Singaporean will and have took them since immemomerial.

    Dr Mubarak Chan have prognosed it correctly but could not said it to us “Makcik-makcik” because it is simply beyond us.
    But if he took time to explain the sign and symptoms of ‘pneumonia’ I believe that is better for us all.
    Dr did not guess.They predict diagnosis based on their findings in clinical evidence and sheer brilliance and intelligence.
    This is something beyond us ‘layman’.
    So..
    In the Dr’s..professional’s and all the noblemen of this profession of TPPA..if and you cannot gives us the point of argument..simply lay out the…

    EXIT STRATEGY..

    Dear Mr Mubarakchan,
    You say in the name of prudence, you cannot disclose why you oppose TPPA. Then please allow me to pose you these questions, between prudence and national interest, which should take privy? Your opposition of TPPA borders on xenophobia, no? What are the offensive clause or sub clauses that are obnoxious ? Please reproduce them, if any. In the name of truth and transparency, let us not hide and be evasive. Unless disclosure of classified material of military secrets which is against the law, please do not underestimate the intelligence of lay men like me, sibotak, wajaperak or balance to decide the justification of TPPA.
    THIS IS A GLOBAL world without borders. What is so secretive and prudence about disclosure of disadvantages of TPPA.? There is nothing private and confidential about TPPA.
    I strongly suspect the opposition against free market and in favour of protectionism are not from the Opposition Pakatan Rakyat but from within the BN itself in the power play to destabilise our current beloved Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib, in view of the coming UMNO party election. They are involved in fear mongering.
    cyber world has arrived. Signing of TPPA is only symbolic. China has invaded the whole world with its products.. From Tanzania to America you can find Chinese goods. Let us not anti Singapore, anti America and anti all and sundry and be another Myanma, a seclusive society fearful of foreigners called xenophobia.

    For Amin Tan and all fellow Bloggers. To put it bluntly, for me, I read the TPPA if signed by the BN Government as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties is a sneaky way and means to screw us all what we have built up through our hopes and aspirations our whole life-time and finish ourselves off by OUR OWN HANDS if we sign this TPPA now. What is the hurry to sign ? What is the motive ? BUT IF GOODIES ARE GUARANTEED BY THE TPPA IT IS A DIFFERENT STORY. THE TPPA GUARANTEES NOTHING IN RETURN. Like you all, I am a free-marketeer but my beloved country Malaysia is NOT FOR TURNING OR BURNING ! We can always sign later when Malaysia is on a sounder footing in all aspects !

  97. mubarakchan Aug 6,2013 4:10 PM

    Specially for Amin Tan and all fellow Bloggers. Let the truth be told. I was quite happy that the BN Government could safeguard our SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM right up to 2003. From 2004, news began to trickle out that the Saddam Hussein sanctions were wrongly sanctioned etc. blocks of oil exploration were re-arranged, Pulau Batu Puteh became something else, huge blocks of Government shares were sold and bought and bought again, 25 miles of steel rail tracks which rightly belongs to KTM, etc.etc., I decided that instead of taking a busman’s holiday, I appeared in this Blog 2 years ago. All these happened after 47 years of due recognition by our successive Governments on safeguarding our beloved Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM.
    We note that in the article ‘ Trans-Pacific Partnership is an opportunity ‘, the title itself is speculative and unassuring as though it came from the pen of a Wall Street pundit. We are our beloved Malaysia which sovereignty, national interest, and self-esteem we must safeguard at all times especially by Government officials who are paid to do the job. The author being a ‘yes’ man in promoting the TTPA said that the Government officials went through 18 rounds of negotiations in all the lush places I presume. And yet, at the onset, NONE OF THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS REALIZE THAT THIS TTPA MIGHT NOT BE TO THE ADVANTAGE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND YET THEY WENT THROUGH 18 ROUNDS OF NEGOTIATIONS. Negotiating for what within the parameters of SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM. And the Author is confident his team will produce a ‘yes’ paper of the TPPA and present it to the distinguished MALAYSIAN CABINET to decide, so he says in the article. UP TO 2003, I COULD SLEEP SOUNDLY BECAUSE I KNEW THE CIVIL SERVICE WAS THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE TO SAFEGUARD OUR SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM from then on, the secret to govern our beloved Malaysia seemed to have been lost along the way to somewhere.
    We do not have to look far. For those who admire Singapore’s much flaunted and vaunted meritocratic pyramid of ‘yes’ men with the smartest fellow at the top. See how these ‘yes’ men lost US$108 Billions of its citizens Trust money in October 2008 on Wall Street by writing beautifully crafted ‘yes’ papers to the Boss. In 2013, 2 Ministers announced that in future, promotions etc. will not be ENTIRELY dependent on academic qualifications alone but also hidden talents.

    Our Tun is no FAKE. And we must think carefully and ponder carefully when he has something serious to say. He is a great statesman who has safeguarded our beloved Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM brilliantly. He did not sell our hapless grandmothers down river ! This is also one reason that some dubious characters do not like him.

    For Amin Tan. You are right that I should explained why I am dead against the TPPA at the moment. I have already done so WITH MY ASSESSMENT THAT THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES WILL LOSE THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS IF THE BN GOVERNMENT SIGNS THE TPPA. I have been in political socio-economics since 1960 and had served in the highest financial institutions in the land outside of politics. I had access to the top until after 2003. Some of my peers will understand why our beloved Malaysia should not sign the TPPA now. We can always sign later. THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS A PERSON CANNOT SAY IN THE NAME OF PRUDENCE !

    THE OPPOSITION DEFINITELY WANTS THE BN GOVERNMENT TO SIGN THE TPPA WHICH IS ITS OWN DEATH WARRANT. Vide. The Star which is now promoting Opposition issues gave a full page to the Government proponent of the TPPA on 5 August 2013 StarBiz Page 4. The article stated no substantive issues for Malaysia backed by hard-nosed statistics or charts.

    I ASK AGAIN WHAT IS THE HURRY TO SIGN THIS TPPA FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ? Definitely, the Opposition loves the BN Government to sign as soon as possible. Please note also Thailand and Indonesia are out of it – with much bigger markets than us.

    Dear Mubarakchan,
    You are so passionate in appealing to the government not to sign TPPA. Please take it easy. You must explain why Malaysia must not sign TPPA backed up by some convincing examples and theories.
    Are you advocating a closed economy like Myanma, North Korea and China under Mao Tze Tung? If we are so beset by so many phobia then we may remain like Myanma. I have explained the benefits of international trade in my other posting under the current topic. I think Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohammed, our Minister for Trade and our Prime Minister are capable enough and know what they are up to. I admire their engaging style with foreign countries like Singapore, America, Brunei, Australia. They are not confrontational at all towards foreign countries but seek mutually beneficial and friendly relationships. Let us not listen to unfounded rumours spread by the Opposition like we spread kaya. Let us not undermine ourselves.

    Betul kata Saudara Wajaperak, ia hanya suatu gurauan saya sahaja iaitu beliau bukan seorang Colonel.
    Tetapi yang pasti beliau ialah seorang Islam yang gentleman, ikhlas dan jujur. Ketika saya solat berimamkan beliau di rumah saya pada waktu maghrib, beliau baca Surah Kahfi.

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

    And further more, PLEASE PLEASE BN GOVERNMENT PLEASE DO NOT SIGN THE TPPA AT THE MOMENT. It is still not too late until our beloved Malaysia has achieved VISION 2020. WHY THE GREAT HURRY TO SIGN THIS DEATH WARRANT TO KILL OURSELVES OVERNIGHT ? We can always sign it when we can compete in the developed markets of the TPP countries. I have been an industrialist and exporter too, I know what it is like.

    CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME !

    Tun

    Today, in Page 2 of the New Straits Times, our distinguished Prime Minister was quoted, ‘ The peace, stability and security enjoyed by the country should not be destroyed or jeopardised by the call for ubah (change). Changes should bring a better future rather than using the term to destroy what we have built together over the years.’ He noted that some countries had tried to implement abrupt change only for it to end in turmoil. In the Star, Page 2, the Prime Minister was quoted as ‘ it could take years to build a nation or country but it would take only a few seconds to destroy it.’ I AM IN FULL SUPPORT OF THESE SENTIMENTS AS EXPRESSED BY OUR PRIME MINISTER AND AM CONFIDENT HE WILL UPHOLD ALL OUR HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS WITH THE BN GOVERNMENT.

    However, if the TPP Agreement is signed by the BN Government as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties, there is a very high probability that the 14th General Elections will be lost by the BN to the Opposition for the following reasons.
    1. Malaysia amongst the TPP candidates has an economy which relies on the export of petroleum products and palm oil to open markets. Her manufactured products from the FTZ which has diminished in volume and value are not made by Malaysians but only provide employment for Malaysians. There is no real Malaysian industrialist in Malaysia today but a large grouping of SMEs still trying to find an established foothold in the domestic market. When minor Government officials talk about ‘for us there is a whole new market out there – a hundred times our own’. This is the talk of 2013 and I can honestly say that Malaysia is far far behind in the manufacturing of goods for exports. I should know because I was the last real industrialist making textiles in the 1970s ! There is therefore no immediate or actual benefit for Malaysia for needs to create and nurture Bumiputra concomitant with non-Bumiputra businesses as part of our attempts to create a meaningful all embracing Malaysian socio-economic cultural identity. AT ONE STROKE OF THE PEN, ALL THE HARD-WORK IN PUTTING UP ALL THESE BUMIPUTRA AND NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES WILL BE SWEPT AWAY. THIS IS ONE REASON WHY THE BN WILL LOSE THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTIONS. And all Government officials should know that we have insufficient qualified and skilled human resorces.

    2. THE TPPA IS THE 2013 VERSON OF THE ONE-SIDED 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE. Malaysia now pays Singapore to give her free water due to the ringgit depreciation, strait jacket agreement with no escape clause, etc. IN PRACTICE THIS IS HOW THE TPPA WILL WORK NO MATTER HOW MANY PROVISIONS OUR MINOR OFFICIALS PUT INTO THE AGREEMENT (Ladies and Gentlemen, when it comes to business, we should not do business in courts). Overnight Malaysia becomes an open market for Singapore. All many of manufactured goods from all manner of countries will into Malaysia through Singapore who WILL BE THE MAIN BENEFICIARY OF THIS TPPA GAME. OVERNIGHT, OUR BUMIPUTRA AND NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES WILL CLOSE DOWN, UNEMPLOYMENT JUMPS, COST OF LIVING AND INFLATION WILL GO THROUGH THE ROOF, GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE NO MONEY TO SUBSIDIZE ESSENTIAL GOODS, POLITICAL TURMOIL WITH THE OPPOSITION POURING OIL ON BURNING FIRES. THE RINGGIT WILL DEPRECIATE PLUS PLUS. IF BAD LUCK, THE PRICES OF PETROLEUM OIL AND PALM OIL DROP. THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY TO PAY THE BURGEONING CIVIL SERVICES AND TO DEVELOP THE COUNTRY – AND THE BN WILL LOSE THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS BIG TIME. And the Malays, a grouping of 14 Million souls will lose their heritage, legacies, etc etc as now protected holistically by the UMNO and the non-Malays will suffer more as another grouping of wandering souls.
    3. Today in Page 4 The Star Biz News. A Government official put forth his point of view which consists mainly of generalizations and opportunistic phrases with no statistics or guarantees that all the GOODIES OR PIE IN THE SKY WILL EVER HAPPENED TO UN-INDUSTRIALISED MALAYSIA. The article, ‘TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP IS AN OPPORTUNITY’. This sounds very speculative and not all re-assuring to those who were seeking solace. THERE WERE NO HARD-NOSED STATISTICS TO SUPPORT THE AUTHOR’S PIE IN THE SKY ARGUMENTS. THERE WERE NO TRADE FLOW CHARTS WHICH WOULD HAVE EXPOSED SINGAPORE IN ITS CURRENT STATE OF CAMOUFLAGE. The article only mentioned a few nice sounding words like ‘ ..imagine if we are not part of the TPP and those markets don’t give us equal access – that would be disastrous,’ A supercilious statement if I may say so. And I ask, “WHAT HAS MALAYSIA GOT TO SELL TO THESE MARKETS NOW OR EVEN IN THE FUTURE ?” We negotiate on real substantive issues not airy fairy stuff. The sad TRUTH IS MALAYSIA BEING STILL NOT AN INDUSTRIALISED COUNTRY, WE HAVE NOTHING TO SELL TO THE BIG BOYS. RIGHT ? BUT WE OPEN OUR MARKET TO THEM WHEN WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO A TRADE OFF AND KILL OURSELVES BIG TIME IN THE PROCESS WITH THE FALL OF THE BN GOVERNMENT AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES AT THE NEXT 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS.

    Semoga Tun mengizinkan ruang..
    Saudara sentinel 3,
    [[Sebagai contoh, jangan kita membeli lagi jet pejuang yang mengeluarkan asap tebal pada enjinnya, atau bekas wira dog-fight di udara kerana era dog-fight di udara sudah berakhir dengan kemunculan teknologi canggih yang boleh memusnahkan pesawat beyond visual range]]

    Mungkin saudara berminat ingin tahu faktor ini…:)
    The kill probability (Pk) is determined by several factors, including aspect (head-on interception, side-on or tail-chase), altitude, the speed of the missile and the target, and how hard the target can turn. Typically, if the missile has sufficient energy during the terminal phase, which comes from being launched at close range to the target from an aircraft with an altitude and speed advantage, it will have a good chance of success. This chance drops as the missile is fired at longer ranges as it runs out of overtake speed at long ranges, and if the target can force the missile to turn it might bleed off enough speed that it can no longer chase the target. Operationally, the missile, which was designed for beyond visual range combat, has a Pk of 46% when fired at targets beyond visual range (13 missiles for 6 kills). In addition, the targets lacked missile warning systems, were not maneuvering, and were not attempting to engage the fighter that fired the AMRAAM..

    1)Harga sebuah misil..
    2)Jumlah misil yang dibawa oleh sesuatu jet pejuang.
    3)Kebenaran untuk melancarkan misil tersebut.
    4)’Kill time factor’.Sewaktu sesuatu pesawat musuh sudah ‘lock’ untuk di tembak jatuh, adakah ianya masih dalam ‘zon’ dan masa yang ‘legal’ untuk ‘engagement’ ini.Hint..Kelajuan sesebuah pesawat dalam masa sesaat…
    5)Steady finger’s…:)

    Mudah sahaja untuk menjadi keyboard fighter of the finest warrior..Step put into the sun and you will realizes that the sun can be scorching…

    Yet because this feature is only present on the most modern jets, and missiles are a finite resource, the US Navy (TOPGUN) and the US Air Force (Red Flag) continue to teach postgraduate-level classes in air-combat-maneuvering engagements. Russian aircraft manufacturers heavily emphasize supermaneuverability and dogfight capabilities in fighter design, with aircraft such as the Su-37 or the Su-30MKI demonstrating advanced thrust vectoring systems to achieve these goals, pushing the aircraft to its limits to give it an advantage in combat. USAF fighters, such as the F-15 and F-16, tend to favor higher speeds, because of their emphasis on high power-to-weight ratio and low wing-loading; although the F-22 has supermaneuverability with its own vectored thrust.

    Selamat hari raya Aidil Fitri kepada semua pembaca blog Tun..

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Selamat hari raya pada sentinel dan pada semua orang yang membaca.

    Saya kembali menggunakan musato sebab blog Tun dah banyak kali tukar kulit. Jadi kalau tak silap saya nama saya juga tercicir sementara.

    Terima kasih pada Mr Sufi admin chedet.cc

    Saya tak berapa tahu, rupanya beliau pembantu peribadi Tun. Baru tahu 2 tahun lepas.

    Dulu dulu HBT kata sebab software old version, maka tak boleh guna nama musato.

    Saya menulis dengan permulaan Assalamualaikum dan disudahi dengan terima kasih, bukan sebab Tun lepaskan komen saya.

    Wajaperak pernah berkata benda yang sama.

    Tetapi sebab masa tu semua komen komen tak melambangkan kita sebagai adab orang Melayu dan Islam.

    Tidak berterima kasih.

    Musato diblacklisted sekejap di blog 1Malaysia bukan sebab kerana menulis secara kurang ajar atau kasar bahasanya.

    Cuma dalam tasawuf kita juga melalui peristiwa dan mengambil iktibar dari kisah kisah nabi seperti Nabi Sulaiman a.s (perihal jin), Nabi Yusuf a.s (perihal godaan wanita), Nabi Khidir a.s (perihal tindakan misteri) serta Rasulullah s.a.w (perihal mentadbir dan politik).

    Seingat saya, saya juga menegur Tun bila Tun menulis sesuatu yang buruk pasal Pak Lah.

    Ramai ulama ulama dikurniakan kebolehan dalam menulis. Seperti kata kata dalam surah Al Alaq “Bacalah dengan nama Tuhanmu (Allah)”

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri pada semua.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Tun

    For all Bloggers. I was happy to note in Page 24 of the Sunday Times today, the headline ‘ No racism among doctors.’ This is a categorical statement by the Malaysian Medical Association thus. ‘ The Malaysian Medical Association is upset over accusations about doctors being racists. It is disturbing that this is being discussed in state assemblies without anyone attempting to investigate the matter. Using privilege of office to hurl accusations is cowardly and a misuse of that privilege……..The Hippocratic Oath adhered to by all doctors demands that we treat all without prejudice to race, caste, colour, sex or religion. Doctors even treat their enemies in good faith. Racism amongst doctors is and was non-existent…………Politically minded people appear to be using doctors as pawns to fight their cause. It is an attempt to tarnish a noble profession to endear themselves to the people………’ unquote the President , Malaysian Medical Association.

    The numerous times that the Tun has been accused of being a racist by politicians who are not aware that a qualified medical practitioner is already conditioned to be a non-racist. It is impossible to be a racist as pointed out rightly by the President of the Malaysian Medical Association for the reasons which he enumerated. This name calling of the Tun showed those who did so have no knowledge of what is right or wrong and were entirely ignorant and made fools of themselves. This seems the highest level of denunciations these type of political bad-mouthing could go. It is all very pointless now that the professional body of doctors have come out to condemn those people who call all doctors as racist including our Tun. If these so-called politicians reflect a moment, the Constitution forbids racism too. And maybe cowardly could be too strong a word for those who dared speak out after 2003. Or it maybe not ! I have always said the Tun could not be a racist because of his background and professional training – and this comment has now been confirmed to be true by the Malaysian Medical Association. On the other hand, the perpetrators exposed the dark side of their characters by speakiing without facts which should have gone through their frontal lobes.

  108. sentinel3 Aug 4,2013 6:02 PM

    Tun,

    Mohon izin untuk lari sikit daripada topik untuk mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri kepada Tun sekeluarga dan rakyat Malaysia beragama Islam keseluruhannya.

    Saya juga ingin mengambil kesempatan pada ruangan Tun ini untuk mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri kepada Mr. Mubarak Chan, Mr. Amin Tan, Kolonel wajaperak, thaiso dan Sibotak, Rawa Lanun-Bahasa dan lain-lain penulis dalam blog ini.

    Tun, saya mempunyai beberapa harapan kepada rakyat Malaysia sempena 1 Syawal yang akan tiba ini.

    Kepada golongan Melayu terutama yang sudah kaya dan lupa diri, saya berharap akan berubah dan insaflah bahawa bangsa Melayu masih mundur dalam segala segi terutama ekonomi dan pendidikan.

    Kalau tidak mahu membantu bangsa sendiri pun, sekurang-kurangnya janganlah memperlekehkan bangsa sendiri dan menuduh mereka rasis kerana mempertahankan keistimewaan yang ada hanya atas kertas sahaja serta menafikan pula hak mereka untuk turut sama maju seperti anda.

    Kepada para alim ulama pula terutama yang condong kepada parti pembangkang, saya berharap akan sedar bahawa pendidikan agama sahaja tidak mencukupi untuk memperjuangkan nasib bangsa Melayu di negara ini.

    Insaflah bahawa bangsa Melayu tidak boleh survive di negara mereka sendiri dan bersaing dengan kaum lain jika hanya arif dalam ilmu agama semata-mata.

    Oleh itu, janganlah cuba mempertaruhkan apa yang ada iaitu cuma sedikit keistimewaan pada bangsa Melayu mahupun peralatkan agama demi untuk memikat kaum bukan Islam demi memperjuangkan politik sempit anda.

    Kalau kita tidak pandai mentadbir negara, silap-silap bukan sahaja bangsa Melayu akan mundur malah negara sendiri akan hancur kerana dipermainkan oleh bangsa asing yang lebih maju di peringkat antarabangsa mahupun global.

    Kepada kerajaan pula, saya berharap akan ada perubahan terutama dalam mempelajari kesilapan yang lalu dalam membuat sesuatu keputusan sama ada dari segi politik dalaman negara mahupun dengan negara luar termasuklah perjanjian dua hala dengan negara asing.

    Cukuplah kerajaan zaman Tunku Abdul Rahman melakukan banyak kesilapan tetapi sepatutnya kesilapan itu tidak berulang lagi hingga ke hari ini.

    Saya tidak mahu menyentuh mengenai isu air dengan Singapura mahupun tanah KTMB di republik itu kerana seperti kata pepatah Melayu nasi sudah jadi bubur.

    Isu yang terbaru ialah mengenai cadangan pembelian pesawat tempur Rafale dari Perancis. Jet pejuang ini dilaporkan canggih tetapi terlalu mahal.

    Jadikan iktibar pembelian jet pejuang sebelum ini sebagai pengajaran dan jangan membeli jet tempur hanya disebabkan mahu memenangi hati sahabat negara lain, jadi kita membeli jet tersebut.

    Jangan disebabkan negara sahabat kita, India membeli jet tempur Perancis maka kita pun turut sama membeli jet yang sama walaupun kosnya berlipat ganda melebihi kos pesawat pejuang canggih negara lain yang juga tidak kurang hebatnya.

    Sebagai contoh, jangan kita membeli lagi jet pejuang yang mengeluarkan asap tebal pada enjinnya, atau bekas wira dog-fight di udara kerana era dog-fight di udara sudah berakhir dengan kemunculan teknologi canggih yang boleh memusnahkan pesawat beyond visual range.

    Dan jangan pula disebabkan hendak memikat hati kawan negara sahabat kerana takut kawan kita itu merajuk, kita membeli pesawat tempur canggih seperti membeli kereta sport tetapi peralatan dalamnya hanya dilengkapi dengan kaset era tahun 70-an.

    Saya tidak mendapat sebarang komisen membuat cadangan ini tetapi tidak salah kerajaan mempertimbangkan pesawat-pesawat tempur lain seperti Typhoon atau pesawat pejuang terbaharu ciptaan Rusia.

    Akhir sekali Tun, harapan saya ialah semoga terdapat reconciliation antara pelbagai kaum di negara ini terutama dalam politik yang telah memusnahkan semangat muhibah yang dibina selama ini.

    Bagaimanapun saya tidak yakin reconciliation antara kaum akan berlaku buat selama-lamanya di negara ini selagi si cicak Chameleon masih wujud dan aktif di negara ini dan selagi portal-portal pembangkang yang menabur fitnah masih berterusan menghasut rakyat di negara ini serta orang yang busuk hati seperti HockbengTeoh456 masih ramai di negara ini .

    Salam Tun dan maaf zahir batin.

    For Hajar. You are great. Why should the BN listens to the Opposition of which the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP’s intellect is inferior to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore ? Vide Channelnewsasia. 4 August 2013. A Minister points out that Singapore is at an important juncture in its socio-economic transformation. As long as our BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties work within the parameters of our SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF ESTEEM like our Tun’s 22 year Administration, no one can find fault with this and coupled with AS LONG AS THE BN GOVERNMENT OBSERVES THE ABSOLUTE RULE OF THE LAWS, IMPLEMENTS FAIR AND TRANSPARENT POLICIES, MAINTAINS A NORMAL AND FUNCTIONAL BUREAUCRACY AND ESCHEWS MAKING MONEY THROUGH THE GLCs BUT ONLY TO RULE OVER US, THERE IS NOTHING MUCH THE OPPOSITION CAN DO TILL THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS. No need to over-react to all the provocations which have taken place or to come by the Opposition which was soundly defeated LEGITIMATELY AT THE BALLOT BOX AS PER OUR MALAYSIAN DEMOCRACY.

  111. Hajar Aug 4,2013 12:23 AM

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    Mohon izin Tun:

    I support Dr. Mubarak Chan’s suggestion on July 31, 2013 at 9:48 AM: http://chedet.cc/?p=1025#comment-115355


    BN GOVERNMENT PLEASE BRING BACK THE ISA AND THE EO. NO NEED TO MULL OVER THIS. THERE ARE ENOUGH REASONS LYING IN THE STREETS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO BRING BACK THE ISA AND THE EO. And to muzzle the detractors, just mention that their hero, SINGAPORE STILL KEEPS THE COMPLETE SET UNEXPURGATED ! No more. No less.

    BN must REINSTATE the ISA and EO to ensure that PEACE/STABILITY is maintained in Malaysia. Dato’ Seri Najib must stop listening to the Oppositions; this is not going to benefit BN. The Oppositions are only interested in creating chaos in this country so that it is easier for them to ‘bring down’ the Government in the next GE.

    Talking about WATER, the quality of water in Selangor is getting worse. For the last 1 week the color of ‘TREATED WATER’ is yellowish – dirty…and this scenario is very common nowadays (in Selangor).

    Thanks Tun.

    *** May Allah SWT bless Tun and family ***

  112. mubarakchan Aug 1,2013 9:33 PM

    Tun

    I think it is appropriate in the Holy Month of Ramadan that we take stock of the Political Capital of our beloved Malaysia as follows :-

    1. The ruling party the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties has been in power continuously from 1950. Until the formation of rich political parties, the general populace was quite satisfied with its performance. And now taking cognizance of its establishment of the major party UMNO in 1946, the Malays and all Malaysian should stand proud that the BN has more or less mastered the levers of Western Democracy somewhat – a world class political party like the Republicans, the Democrats, the Conservatives, the Labour, the Congress Party of India, etc.
    2. The Leadership as shown by the whole set of Prime Ministers from the 1957s to 2013 has been exemplary because there has always been a desire by the incumbent to step down to give the next candidate a chance. This is true democracy as practised in the best possible way.
    3. The Majority – the Malays have always shown the practical side of their thinking and logic which is the reason that they have supported their top leaders all this while. For this foresight, the Malays have gained tremendously on the ‘kongsi’ formula which was applied for decades by the BN. And so the non-Malays also gained to the extent that they have become complacent and heady – forgetting that Democracy – Western Democracy as practised in Malaysia the Malaysian Way – has to be nurtured like a seedling in a dark primeval forest seeking a tiny ray of sunshine. In 1999 and 2004, the Chinese supported the BN Government. But their support weakened in 2008 and more so in 2013. This is surprising even in the face of the all out putsch by the Opposition. Now, they are high and dry with the Opposition.
    5. The MCA has a glimmer of hope provided the new politicians are sincere and not self-serving.
    6. I consider the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP the longest serving Opposition party in the whole World led by the finest and disciplined leadership which is immuned to seduction.
    7. The PKR is a rich party beyond reproach.
    8. The PAS is a pious party which has many qualities that others may emulate.

    And these valuable Political Capitla Assets are in our beloved Malaysia which is so far free from the vicissitudes of a fickle weather which lords over all of us and our natural resources in the most important choke point in the World of strategic geo-politics (practised by politicians and pundits who pore over their radar screens or crystal balls since 1997).

    AS LONG AS THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES OBSERVES THE ABSOLUTE RULE OF THE LAWS, IMPLEMENTS POLICIES WHICH ARE FAIR AND TRANSPARENT, MAINTAINS A FUNCTIONING NORMAL BUREAUCRACY AND ESCHEWS DOING BUSINESS (BUT TO RULE AND GOVERN US ONLY) WITH GLCs MAKING MONEY BUT LEAVE THIS TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR, THE OPPOSITION CANNOT DO MUCH UNTIL THE 14th General Elections.

    Anyway what is morally right to one person may be wrong to to the next but as always people will compromise and act courteously because they understand.
    What i dont understand is how and why the education ministry make moral education as a compulsory subject in school? How can a teacher know each and every student upbringing and family life? Is the ministry trying to turn every malaysian into robots? They should be encouraging student to understand more about other people culture and moral belief by allowing student to mix freely. Right now i see schools are trying to separate the student by race and religion, so how to learn moral when you dont understand other people feeling and cultural belief. When people only know one way how will they know how to compromise and live happily together.

    This subject should be BN biggest task or maybe biggest obstacle?

  115. balance Aug 1,2013 11:10 AM

    Amin Tan,

    DAP or PKR can never become the govt. as their politics are not fine not to mentioned their minority status but they are great opposition. Any type of strong opposition is good for the country and the people as there can be check and balance. Any human if given free-hand to run anything the possibilities of “big-headed” and abuse is very high therefore any type of “braking system” is good.

    Today ask anyone why they vote DAP or PKR and the answer is to stop or slow-down BN abuses and extremism politics. If BN is to win the heart and soul of the people they must do away their extremism(holier than thou), know-all ideology and stop all abuses of power. The people are watching them with microscope.

    People of Malaysia are no more blind and illiterate but they are intelligent and very aware of the going-on. The people’s “blind faith” years for BN and UMNO are over and minsters and politicians holidays are definitely over. People like Khairy are the smart one to notice and quickly turn-around and start working within the people inspiration. It is the older politicians that are so use to the ‘I tell you do” policies until it become their second nature that need to re-think or disappear from making national policies.

    Listen and feel the “wave” and BN will be fine but if resist danger of falling is very near. Anwar is a small fish swimming in a awaken and smart Malaysian pool. He can try be anything but not many trust him like many trusted Tun Dr.M. People are only temporary using him to correct the political situation and he knows it too. His personal feeling toward Tun is his weakest point, whatever he can try to say people will think it is revenge and that is the “end of story” or “game-over”.

    What-ever happen remember everyone has a time limit in doing anything. NO one can hold-on to things eternally. Many tried but none enjoy as only the next or younger generation will enjoy or hate these memories. Your money, power, wealth, icon, status and etc are only valuable or recognized on earth and nowhere else but if a person invent or done something useful and meaningful for humans, people will remember and talk good things (positive energy) about them forever example Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein. Less people care about country leaders and politicians and their legacy.

    Back to politics, go to Penang and ask the people on the street what they think about the state govt and its status. The feedback i get are people know and realized that the tough policies are long-term beneficial and for the betterment of all type people. Biggest complain is house price but everyone knows that is beyond Govt. control as land, material and labour increase price and only the less knowledgeable will still think house price can be lower or cheaper and using this as an opposition subject in Dewan or street ceramah. The Penang BN opposition is weak and they use unrealistic demand and less “strong point” to pressure the state govt like we all know hawkers and mamak store are causing traffic congestion and when enforcement officer remove them they do street protest. The more of such thing will weaken BN further. If BN really want to win back PG and Selangor, they must work harder then just giving free food, TV, some money and etc. Their strategy must be recognizable to be long-term beneficial like international standard education not the “good for kampung only” standard. What is the point of forcing student to studying and passing compulsory subject that local and international employers or companies dont need. They say it is for moral and patriotism building, what is the point to be morally good and very patriotic but jobless. At the end these students need money to live and when they cannot feed themselves they end up as thieves, robber or just petty criminal. There is no one way to educate the young malaysian, it is best they allow choices and believe that Malaysians are smart people and know how to choose and know what is right or wrong.

    Somebody mentioned to me we need Methadone programme in Malaysia for specially selected drug addict’s.
    Singapore does not need this.
    In circumspection you could not find drug addict’s in Singapore as much as you find them in Malaysia.No “Cure” and “Care” Clinics.
    What happened to all Singaporean drug addict’s?
    Can we say the same thing that the answers to crime as a simple to…

    It is surprising that in 2013 that the majority of the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese, still do not realize the Malayness and the religion Islam which are linked together in our beloved Malaysia. I surmise that the mind-set of these Chinese is still in the belief that the Malays are like the Chinese who in turn are like the Indians. This is faulty thinking at its worst giving rise to the hiatus which we have now in the political arena. Even though we are human beings, different peoples behave and feel differently. Hence, only a constant interaction between peoples can the considerations for other people’s feeling come about. Certain politicians now exploit this weakness of the Chinese mind to the full but to no avail. This only a play on emotions and not on realpolitiks of the day and will soon be snuffed out somehow, sometime.
    Yes ! Tun ! A simple mind-set game played to the full by ambitious politicians with no ambition of any kind except to gain power at Putrajaya.

    Dear Tun,
    Please allow me to address Mr balance,

    Dear Mr Balance,

    I read your posting with interest. You have great sense of humour. Sometimes I cannot stop laughing out loud especially when you scolded our hero Dr Mubarakchan. Generally I agree with your outlook on life. However, I have different perspectives of the current political and social scenario in Malaysia.

    2. The current political struggle between BN and PR is the offshoot of power struggle between the Prime Minister, our Honourable Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad and his deputy Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. After Tun sacked Anwar for alleged sodomy, Anwar went on the rampage and fought Tun tooth and nail. But Tun was far smarter and outflanked Anwar. Eventually Anwar was banned for life from UMNO. Anwar became the outcast and a failed politician. In desperation, he mortgaged and wager(memperjudikan) away the Malay special privileges in order to entice the Chinese from DAP. DAP was the willing bride and a marriage of convenience(mutaah) took place. The marriage of strange bedfellows was baptised as Pakatan Rakyat with PAS joining in thinking to partake in the war booty of PRU13.
    True enough the 3 political parties namely PKR, DAP and PAS went all out, using ethical and unethical tricks and won the maximum seats the opposition ever achieved. They capture a total of 89 as compared to 133 won by BN. DAP 38. PAS 21. PKR 30.

    3. With the maximum of 38 seats the DAP cannot ever dream of dominating political, economy and social scenes in Malaysia. Even political power, DAP has almost no leverage because the civil service, police and military are made up of non Chinese.

    4. It is entirely up to DAP to be positive and constructive in its political role for Malaysians as a nation, particularly representing the Chinese, by joining Barisan Nasional. Then we have a credible team for nation building. Otherwise DAP can remain an opposition party forever, opposing everything, real or imagined, black or white, like the good old days.

    5. The talk about change and young people running the government and deciding the direction the national policies should take, is just political nonsense. The propaganda about young people decides the future of the nation is just to capture their votes, make them feel important and flatter them a bit.

    6. It is my personal opinion that DAP, after winning the mandate for the Chinese population should take stock and assess the pro and con of joining BN. It is better to negotiate and see eye to eye and cut a win win deal in friendly pow wow with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib. As you say whoever win Putrajaya takes control of Patronas wealth.

    7. If DAP remains in the opposition, it is just like good old time of opposing, negative , destructive, confrontational, challenging one another(cabar mencabar).

    8. It would be better for DAP to embrace TRANSFORMASI, which is expansionary, positive and harmonious and abandon REFORMASI, which organises illegal street demonstration, hostile and confrontational politics.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Panglima tentera dan ketua polis menjawab bahawa bukan satu kesilapan apa yang berlaku di Lahad Datu.

    Ketua Polis berkata memang adalah satu budaya kita negara Malaysia berunding sebelum melaksanakan operasi.

    Saya tidak berkata berunding adalah satu kesilapan.

    Saya bermaksud pelaksanaan operasi dalam risiko tinggi tidak mencapai piawaian yang bagus.

    Kerana yang terlibat adalah komando VAT.Anda terpaksa menarik mayat anggota dan berundur.

    Pada pemahaman saya, komando VAT diarahkan berundur kerana berlaku kejadian yang tidak dijangka dalam operasi.

    Ini bermaksud jangkaan risiko berlakunya peperangan memang tidak dijangka.

    Bagaimana pula jangkaan berlakunya tembakan rambang dalam bandar?

    Mungkin ketua polis boleh jawab lagi.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Sorry again. In my haste to comment on the nitty-gritty of the untimely death of my friend the good and noble Hussein Najadi, I forgot to mention a case which occurred last week which was not prominently reported in the media. One morning, a schoolboy was walking to school in the Cheras area. He was kidnapped and put on board a car in which there were already 2 other school girls in it. He managed to escape at as the vehicle stopped at the traffic lights. And he reported his narrow escape to the Police with his parents. However, the Police told them they could not do anything about the 2 school girls unless a Police report was made. These sort of crimes are what the ordinary people endure if they are unfortunate. Every person or friend I met these days would express their concern at the rising crime rate which seems to move closer and closer to their homes. Successive Governments have successfully dealt with crime. Is it because the ISA and the EO were in place ?

    Sorry. One important comparison which must be made. In 1972, it is alleged Singapore has 2,000 registered gangsters. By 1982, Singapore had ZERO gangsters. It is alleged the chaps checked into Malaysia at 9 a.m. and checked out at 5 p.m. Hence, it is alleged the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore, said something about crime in Johor Baru in the early 1980s which raise a big outcry.
    And their Police Chief recently claimed to have a force of 10,000 policemen. I doubt they need that many and waste money. I guess the professional policemen are about 4,000 and I noticed their work is more than fully stress vide. the American suicide case.
    IN MALAYSIA, JUST A FEW DAYS AGO IN THE PAGE 2 OF THE STAR A POLICE OFFICIAL CLAIMED THAT 8,000 CRIMINALS WERE RELEASED ARISING FROM THE REPEAL OF THE ISA AND THE EO – 2,000 FROM LOCK-UPS AND 6,000 FROM RESTRICTED RESIDENCE. The latter is effective because I know of one authentic case that the person gave up crime altogther. NOW, 8,000 CRIMINALS DO MAKE UP THE SIZE OF A SMALL TOWN. These are the known ones AND THE POLICE HAS EVERY REASON TO LOCK THEM UP BECAUSE THEY HAVE COMMITTED A CRIME. These 8,000 gangsters are the ones the POLICE KNOW. What about those that the POLICE DO NOT KNOW ?
    HAS ANYONE WORKED OUT THE SUMS LIKE OUR FRIENDLY ROCKET SCIENTIST FROM SINGAPORE TO CATCH ONE CRIMINAL ? One policemen to catch one or 10 policemen or whatever to do so ? Hey ! Hey ! WHAT ABOUT BUDGET CONSTRAINTS FOR THE PDRM ? The increased costs of spending public money to shepherd all these thousands of Oppostion supporters around. PLUS THE INCREASED CRIME COSTS WITH 8,000 FREED CRIMINALS ROAMING AROUND SHOOTING, ROBBING, RAPING AND MAIMING.

    PLEASE BN GOVERNMENT BRING THE ISA AND THE EO SOON. NO NEED TO MULL OVER THE PRIORITY FOR ALL OUR PERSONAL SAFETY.

    At the present time, our beloved Malaysia could be the ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD WITHOUT A SECURITY BLANKET FOR ITS CITIZENS. OMG ! See how Singapore requires only 4,000 policemen to do the job and in our case, we have NO INKLING HOW MANY POLICEMEN ARE REQUIRED TO EVEN ROPE BACK IN THE 8,000 WANDERING CRIMINALS AND MORE TO COME !

    I agree with you that we can talk on any subject but we should not belittle people’s religion, race and culture.

    Peace and living peacefully together with all type of people is better than trying to stir problems. Calling people stupid or any other names is wrong. Telling or saying not so good things about someone else religion is very very bad or the worst.

    Problem is many people think they are clever than others and keep repeating and hammering his/her opinion as if his/her thoughts are the universal rule or law. People can have good and bad experience in life and one cannot think that his/her life experience is the best or no one else can have the same experience. Everyone started from nothing and go away with nothing so after all everything is nothing. Money, power and WINNING is just a bait, if you swallow it hook and sinker then the path to hell is fast and straight. When we are young we are aggressive and used our hands to work and later when we are more mature we used our brain to work and when we reach our golden years we become mallow, live life, enjoy our surrounding by accepting the coming and going of younger generation, do some charity work and etc. If any advise that you given to the younger and if they dont take it, just accept it and let them learn from their own ways. (it happen to us too). We should not be so damn sure that our experience and ways are the best as time change and ways change too. From the spiritual point there are many ways to heaven and we cannot say there is only one way (a person can only believe that his/her way is the most suitable way for them). That is why there are so many type of God, saint and deity and everyone is doing and contributing something good.

    BN or PKR is all in the mind. There will not be any different if you open your mind as all are human and Malaysian. None is clever or better or holier or more right than the other. They all just doing their job or cari makan only. Which ever side win there will always be opposition because that is life and that is how our creator wanted it to be. If one accept it then the path is clear and simple.

    I salute your wisdom for peace.

    Yesterday, I was aghast when I saw the headlines of major newspapers announcing the death of an old friend shot from the back in cold blood in a seamy part of Kuala Lumpur. This immediately brought to my mind how Hussein Najadi, a Bahreini, came to Malaysia. Najadi was the guide to a high-powered Arab group of businessmen who visited Malaysia in 1973. He sat next to me at lunch when the visitors were entertained by an important Government financial institution. He was about 31 years old. He made his fortune in Malaysia which is his adopted home. It is most unfortunate that this dastardly crime had to happen to him. Apart from the daily shootings around the country these days, has the repeal of the ISA and the EO got to do with the slaughter of innocent men, women and children ? This is the age of international terrorism which has never really disappeared from anywhere but if at all, it has increased in INTENSITY. Is the BN Government only wakes up and bring back the ISA and the EO when more people and VVIP are gundown in our streets like a slaughterhouse ? THESE LAWS WHICH HAD STOOD US IN GOODSTEAD SINCE 1948 WERE PROMULGATED AT THE SAME TIME AS IN SINGAPORE WHICH STILL RETAINS THE WHOLE SET OF THESE LAWS. Up to 1972, it was alleged that Singapore had 2,000 registered gangsters. By 1982, Singapore had none. It is alleged that the Singaporean chaps check into Malaysia at 9 a.m. every morning and check-out at 5 p.m. after a hard day’s work. It was also alleged that on festive days the gates of the Johor Baru Immigration were thrown open and the mass of returning foreigners were not required to exhibit their passports. This happened years ago.
    Malaysia should not repeal security laws at the whim and fancies of loud-mouth and pushy people without taking cognizance that the United States, the United Kingdom etc have laws which are harsher than the ISA and the EO. And these countries know BEST HOW TO DEAL WITH CRIME. Before we could say, ‘Malaysia’ the ISA and the EO were repealed in a such a hurry without a public debate or hearing leading to the allegations of non-transparency in dealing with a TOP SECURITY PRIORITY MATTER. Are the slaughtered bodies now lying in the streets of our beloved Malaysia the result of the repeal of the ISA and the EO ? I would think so.
    Singapore, a one street town of 4 Millions souls and a zero gangster population has kept the complete set of security laws, the ISA and the EO since 1948. Our beloved country, Malaysia, has at least 1,200 miles of open borders (vide. the Sabah Intruders) abutting neighbouring countries which have guns and bullets aplenty since the end of World War 2. One country sells guns like cakes which are displayed accordingly at cheap cheap prices. It pays for those in authority to walk around the highways and by-ways of Kuala Lumpur and our towns. On this score, I nearly bumped into the Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah twice when he was the Prime Minister. Both times were around 8.30 p.m. at the Sogo Mall and the Ampang Park Shopping Complex. This is one reason why the Tun has my respect.
    This morning, on Page 2 of the New Straits Times ‘ NEW LAWS TO FIGHT CRIME MULLED ‘.
    Through my life, one of my trade secrets is to copy others and improve on their ideas. IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S CASE WE ALREADY HAD THIS SET OF SUPER SECURITY LAWS WHICH WERE TRIED AND TESTED SINCE 1948, the ISA and the EO and in one fell swoop, WE THREW THE WHOLE LOT IN THE DUST-BIN. If I may recall correctly, those people who called for the repeal of the ISA and the EO WERE THE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO SAY SINGAPORE IS GREAT IN EVERYTHING. OK ? Malaysia is now kosong of the ISA and the EO and Singapore retains the full set of laws WITHOUT A SINGLE PERSON GUNNED DOWN IN THE STREETS. Hey ! Hey ! Where are you all who wanted the repeal of the Malaysian ISA and the EO so very badly. MAYBE BECAUSE OF YOU ALL, I LOST A GOOD AND NOBLE FRIEND. What about the others who HAD RIGHTS (those NGOs also responsible for the Repeal) like all of us TO LIVE OUT THEIR FULL LIVES. Duplicity. HAVE I HEARD OF THIS WORD BEFORE ?

    BN GOVERNMENT PLEASE BRING BACK THE ISA AND THE EO. NO NEED TO MULL OVER THIS. THERE ARE ENOUGH REASONS LYING IN THE STREETS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO BRING BACK THE ISA AND THE EO. And to muzzle the detractors, just mention that their hero, SINGAPORE STILL KEEPS THE COMPLETE SET UNEXPURGATED ! No more. No less.

    Tun

    For Saudara Amin, O’Balance, HBT456, and all my friends (no enemies) of this distinguished Blog. There is a sayiing ‘ If you look like a hero, behave like a hero’. I am defintitely no hero but our Tun and his predecessors ARE MY HEROES. As a normal thinking person of our beloved Malaysia I could hazard a guess that the Malaysian politics would end up in such a silly conundrum as of today. It is silly. So what do I do ? Like you all, I have no monopoly or whatever but a normal functioning brain which I developed throughout my life. Only yesterday, my doctor prescribed a medicine which will keep my thyroid to function normally. This good news for some and bad news for others. THE ONLY CONTRIBUTION TO MY BELOVED COUNTRY IS THE IDEAS WHICH MAY ARISE IN MY BRAIN NOW AND THEN. And I must thank those powerful people who believed some of my ideas for the common good in the years past. And so it is, you all and me. We are all the same with goodness to do good in our hearts which sometimes overule our heads. This is no good but we cannot help it because we are not ANIMALS, but Malays, Bumiputras, Chinese, Indians and all.

    HENCE, IT IS AT TIMES LIKE THIS WHICH I NOW BRING OUT THE FACTS OF WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS BAD. THE TRUTH HURTS.

    Yes ! The Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in comparison with the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew did not commit the 9 failed Polices of Singapore for Malaysia. If at all, his public service to our beloved Malaysia is BRILLIANT. For this latter reason and because he is a Malay, all sorts of people queued up to insult and jibed at him which I found disconcerting and unfair. These people apart from kow-towing for money from him could not believe that the Tun could do things as a Malay. And it is my job to tell the World that there is nothing wrong with the Malays who are just as clever and normal like us but with religious and cultural differences like anyone else.
    AS LONG AS WE ALL THINK NORMALLY AND BEHAVE NORMALLY WE WILL BE RESPECTED BY OTHERS NORMALLY. This is not easy to do to behave normally which the Tun did when he was in power and everything was at his command – AND YET HE GAVE IT ALL UP TO GIVE OTHERS A CHANCE.

    The reason why I mentioned the BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW IS THE FACT THAT HE IS BRILLIANT ACADEMICALLY. He scored a Double Starred First in Law at the University of Cambridge. And for this alone, he will always have my deepest respect and admiration. BUT WHEN WE COME TO THE FATE OF NATIONS AND THEIR DESTINIES AND AS A LOYAL CITIZEN OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA, WE MUST BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN WHERE OUR LOYALTY LIES. It is absurd to say I love the Tun, Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore, I do not like Malaysia, the BN and vote for the DAP so that the DAP will be friendly to the Malays. NOW I HOPE SOME OF MY COMPATRIOTS SEE HOW ABSURD IT WAS FOR THE CHINESE, THE DE-TRIBALIZED CHINESE NOT TO VOTE FOR THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES. As I rightly pointed out that only in Malaysia, a country which benefitted the Chinese the most that they behaved IN THIS UN-CHINESE WAY ! Maybe thanks to the decades of brainwashing and the Chinese owned media. HENCE EMOTIONS AND NOT COMMONSENSE RULED THE HEADY HEADS OF THE 90% CHINESE IN THE FIRMAMENT.

    The failure of some people that a Malay, the Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, can be BRILLIANT IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS IS A BUGBEAR TO THEMSELVES because the very fact is radical and unconventional. BUT THEN WE CANNOT AVOID THE FACTS, THE TRUE FACTS AND NOT A SPIN ON GREATNESS. Fortunately, the deeds of the Tun and the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew are for all to see and assess.

    There is a saying, ‘ LOCAL CHILLIES ARE NOT AS PUNGENT AS FOREIGN ONES ‘. No dim sum for me please, Mr O’ Imbalance, Sir !

    Dear Dr Mubarakchan,
    i fully agree with your analysis of the Chinese. PRU13 has shown them to be too clever and too greedy for their own good. They thought they have cornered the backbone of the Malays namely UMNO, by using PKR and PAS. Now they have earned mistrust, consternation, revulsion and even hatred of the sensible, moderate and friendly Malays, to whom they have thrown all sorts of abuse and lies, using cyber troopers the like of the notorious Red Been Army. They are too clever, too greedy and too selfish without any modicum of circumspection. They must show sort remorse as mitigation for their brazen rudeness.

    mubarakchan, sir,

    Whether i am confuse or what-so-ever, it is my choice. Like anyone in Malaysia they have choices and you cannot and never will ever can change that.

    If someone choice is to like Tun Dr.M but vote for DAP or PKR it is their choice and you cannot brand or called them stupid. You have no right!!!

    Everything and anything have its reason and if people do not tell their reason it is also their choice. Sir i guess u are old enough to swallow that and dont grumble and stomp your feet (dont mean you actually do that).

    To you everything is about BN vs DAP or politics or someone is behind doing something not good. Why not for once you listen and concentrate on what DAP or PKR is talking about. Try looking at things from someone else angle. All also only “cari makan” whoever is behind DAP is not important as there are people behind BN too but most importantly is anyone or any team that can give Malaysian a good life is what every Malaysian looking forward to. Malaysians are looking for accountability and good governance. People dont want to look at individual anymore and use worshiping as a mode to vote for a good government. Time and thinking change, all those things you mentioned and stress on are history and they are not important anymore but it may be important to you only.

    If the world do not spin accordingly to your vision or prediction or view you have to accept it and wish them well. Nobody is trying to destroy Malaysia, everyone is only try or fighting to lay their hands on the wealth and treasures of Malaysia. Whoever control the govt control Petronas and it is only a money and power game, if you are suck into it mind and soul you will suffer like them but at least they get the money and in your case i dont know what you get?

    Please dont be “makan tak lalu and tidur tak lena”. You cannot stop the changes that is coming your way and accepting is the only way for your happiness. Your time is over and it is the younger people time now unless you have some money related interest then you fight to stay in control to avoid people digging your history and wrongdoing and if you have none of it then be happy and let it be.
    The biggest question is will DAP join BN and if they do become partner then you will look like a fool. If it happen to Gerakan, history can repeat itself but most importantly where you will go or do if LKY become PM of Malaysia. Ha ha commit suicide ???? ha ha ha Dont worry it just a joke LKY is so old he may not remember how to sit ha ha so he surely cannot be come PM of Malaysia so you are safe lah ha ha ha ha

    Have a nice day and nite.
    Remember to eat your “dim sum” and drink your “chinese tea” at your favorite chinese restaurant as it can improve your strength.

    42. If there are no other races exist, malays will end up as middle east whereby they are willing to sacrifice their loved ones just to show their love for allah.

    After reading the two postings I share their sentiment. The Malaysian Chinese do not want to antagonise the Malays. The Chinese people are peace loving and wise. Let us not stoke and instigate the Malays against the Chinese. Let us remain harmonious, friendly, helping one another to progress. The Malays need the Chinese as much as the Chinese need the Malays in Malaysia. When HBT456 and Age of Enlightenment insult and belittle Islam, then the situation become extremely provocative. Please avoid saying Islam force HBT456 and AoE to become muslims. It is not true.
    I call upon all and sundry, especially those who comment in this blog, please stop totally from attacking other race or religion. It is getting out of hand.

    Salam means peace. Muslims greet one another and shake hands for peace. Let us have peace among the races in this beloved country. menang jadi arang kalah jadi abu. Let us not fight and jealous of one another.

    For Tuntuah and Balance. Fine chaps. We are now all in one boat. THE DE-TRIBALIZED CHINESE, MALAYSIAN CHINESE LIKE O’BALANCE HAVE A DILEMMA. THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP HAS A DOUBLE DILEMMA BEING :-

    1. THE DAP HAS 90% of the 25% Chinese population supported them at the 13th General Elections. Good. Very good. NOW THE DAP TOGETHER WITH THE MCA AND THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE ARE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE TO SAFEGUARD THE SAFETY AND LIVELIHOOD OF THESE CHINESE, MALAYSIAN CHINESE. Let the World be informed that Malaysia at present is in peace, stability and prospertiy.

    2. The second DILEMMA FOR THE DAP IS HOW TO MASK THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW’S 9 POLICIES FAILURES FOR SINGAPORE FROM THE 90% MALAYSIAN CHINESE WHO VOTED FOR THE DAP BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET LEE KUAN YEW. This did not happen.

    3. Third, for the DAP to determine HOW TO DELIVER A CONQUERED MALAYSIA TO THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE TO SAVE HIS LEGACY.

    A DOUBLE OR TREBLE DILEMMA FOR DAP WHICHEVER WAY YOU LOOK AT IT.

    Special for O’Balance. You must be blind, deaf and dumb not to notice the going ons in the Malaysian Political World since 2008. Where was I until 2 years ago ? Now you are confused and emotional WHEN MOTIVES ARE REVEALED VERBATIM. O please O’Balance please put everything into perspective on this date 30 July 2013. You were not born yesterday. THIS DAP/PAP HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE 1964. I WAS THERE IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT WHEN THE FULL FORCE OF THE PAP DUELLED WITH THE TUN. I WAS THERE AT SULAIMAN COURT, KL. THE PAP RALLY. THE FOCH AVENUE (JALAN TUN TAN CHENG LOCK) GANGSTERS RALLY,(now replaced by new Christians) and JALAN IMBI. I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIOTS IN KL. I WAS KEPT INFORMED BY MY FRIENDS IN THE UMNO YOUTH, MY RELATIVE TAN SRI C.C. TOO, THE HIGHEST RANKING CHINESE ADVISER TO THE GOVERNMENT AND MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, THE CONSULTANT IN THE PAEDIATRICIAN WARD KL GENERAL HOSPITAL.

    In the face of history, why the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP takes the lead in BANGING AT THE UMNO EVERYDAY ? Pray tell me O O’Balance. What is the game plan, what is the exit strategy, what is in it for the 90% de-tribalized Chinese of our beloved Malaysia ? Who are the hidden hands if any ?

    O’ Balance if you love peace, stability and prosperity like the Tun and all of us, surely you would request the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP to bring up matters in the Dewan Rakya, would you not ? Surely you are one of us in our sentiments without emotions when it comes to what is right and what is wrong. SURELY YOU CANNOT HAVE THE CAKE AND EAT IT meaning it is alright for the DAP to attack but not alright for others to question hidden motives. YES ! HIDDEN MOTIVES – WHAT ARE THEY. To quote again – THERE IS A METHOD IN THE MADNESS ! Many thanks for revealing your emotions to us, O O’Balance.

    You call DAP supporters blind. Can I ask you how sure are you that you are not more blind.
    You said Chinese are not sure about themselves. Have you look at yourself in the mirror or test your DNA. Are you telling us that you are a superior Chinese or all other Chinese are stupid?

    Why are you comparing and pitting Chinese with Melayu?
    Why cant you write more about how beautiful the Chinese/Melayu relationship?
    Are you trying to start a civil war?
    Dont you have more positive and nice thing to write?
    Are you a bad person?
    Everybody time on earth is limited why must you say sad & bad things. Usually older people are calm, mindful, wise and philosophical but why you are still like a young lion chasing and wanting love and attention?
    Why you keep on telling people you are very well verse about the Malaysian politic and you are always right? What is it that you are trying to do and what is your true intention? Say it out!!!

    Tun

    For Tuntuah. All of us have still the memories of 1969. If there was no 1969 event, then all these frontal and direct assaults on the UMNO maybe treated as of no consequence. BUT WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF 1969 AND THE AWARENESS THAT OUR POLICE FORCE WAS INADEQUATE IN 1969, we may ask WHAT THE DAP IS UP TO IN THE FACE OF SUCH KNOWLEDGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES ? The first thing the DAP must have thought about is THE REAL EXITS FOR THEMSELVES IN THEIR GAME OF ‘NO EXIT’ STRATEGY WHEN TROUBLE IF ANY AND HOPEFULLY NOTHING COMES. eg. Yachts for Pulau Pinang, Port Klang, and a short hop to Singapore, their spiritual homeland.

  135. mubarakchan Jul 30,2013 6:33 AM

    Tun

    For Tuntuah. Very good ‘no exit’ strategy by the intellectually inferior DAP to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore. NOW THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF SOMETHING HAPPENS from this 2 prong pincer movement (i) the increasing pressure being applied onto UMNO by the DAP (ii) the Singapore prong is ready to move on the GIGANTIC DISSEMINATION OF THE EXPECTED TROUBLE TO COME. Smart. This is the cream of the whole strategy – USING INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE TO CHANGE THE MALAYNESS OF MALAYSIAN POLITICS FOREVER and the Malays lose all their heritage, legacy, etc. THROUGH A COUP DE TAT OF CHANGE USING INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE. Smart. But not so smart. BECAUSE THE BRAVERY OF THE LEADERSHIP IS UNUSUAL AND UNREAL AS NOW REVEALED BY THEM DAILY. There is a saying, ‘ THERE IS A METHOD IN THE MADNESS.’

    This explains the whole conundrum of conflict as raised by the DAP and their 90% blind supporters.

  136. mubarakchan Jul 30,2013 6:18 AM

    Tun

    For Tuntuah. Your short general observation of the current state of Malaysian politics leaves a lot unsaid. We must ask ‘What is the motive behind the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP’s constant dalily attacks on the UMNO, the citadel of Malayness, the guardian of the heritage and legacy of all Malays etc. ?’ What is the motive ? The 14th General Elections is a long way off. And the DAP (they themselves know that they have been labelled all sorts of names) are UNUSUALLY UNAFRAID OF WHATEVER CONSEQUENCES WHICH MIGHT BEFALL THE 99.99% of its supporters or the general populace. On the other hand, I observe that a PRIVATE ARMY HAS BEEN BUILT UP IN PULAU PINANG. I presume this is the rearguard for the important people to sail away in yachts to Phuket if trouble comes, leaving behiind the whatever might happen. And as for Johor, it is a hop to the spiritual homeland of the DAP, Singapore. And as for central Selangor, strategic points of safety havens are prepared. OK. It is fine for the insiders of the DAP strategy for protecting themselves when trouble if any comes and hopefully nothing happens. What about the UNPROTECTED DAP SUPPORTERS WHO SUPPORTED THEM UP TO 90% of their total numbers ? WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE GOING TO HIDE IN VIEW OF THE ‘NO EXIT STRATEGY GAME PLAN OF THE DAP ?’ The bravery of the DAP leadership in the present political scenario is most unusual and begs certain questions to be asked.

    SURELY THE DAP LEADERSHIP NOW PLAYING WITH THE SAFETY AND THE LIVELIHOOD OF THE 90% OF THE CHINESE IN OPEN POLITICAL WARFARE MUST BE AWARE WHAT THEIR SPIRITUAL LEADER LEE KUAN YEW SAID A FEW YEARS AGO that the gates of their fortress homeland, Singapore, WILL NOT BE OPENED TO MALAYSIAN REFUGEES. Ladies and Gentlemen, WAS THE SPIRITUAL LEADER OF THE DAP THINKING AHEAD ?

    Now, to me the DAP is banging on the UMNO to do something WRONG so they ride the HIGH HORSE IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD !!!

    WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS LEADERSHIP OF THE DAP WHICH IS INFERIOR INTELLECTUALLY TO THAT OF THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW, THEIR SPIRITUAL LEADER IF the UMNO or the Malays play it COOL with the antics of the DAP which was allleged to have done what they did in the past. THE DAP LEADERSHIP WILL CERTAINLY LOOK INFERIOR TO THE UMNO IN THE FACE OF CONSTANT IRRITATION. I see very clearly that the DAP is trying to re-create history to their advantage. My advice to the UMNO is not to be played into a trap whereby the DAP WILL RISE TO THE TOP IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. This is what they are aiming for at the expense of all our Malaysians. Curfews will cost a lot of jobs and businesses. I have seen this in 1969. DO NOT BE FOOLED UMNO BY THIS CHILDISH PRANK BY DAP – remember they are intellectually inferior to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore. So, let them look foolish when the BN OBSERVES THE ABSOLUTE RULE OF THE LAW, IMPLEMENTS POLICIES WHICH ARE FAIR AND TRANSPARENT, MAINTAINS A NORMAL FUNCTIONAL BUREACRACY, AND ESCHEWS DOING BUSINESS WITH GLCs and focus on governing and ruling us and not make money in competition with the private sector. LET THE DAP SHAKES AND SCREAMS TILL THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS WHICH IS A LONG LONG WAY AWAY.

    KEEP YOUR COOL BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES do not be LED INTO A TRAP BY THE INTELLECTUALLY INFERIOR DAP TO THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE !!! Play it your way BN, not the way others want you to and CONTROL THE WAY FORWARD to the 14th General Elections.

    THE ABOVE IS THE REASON WHY THE DAP HAS NO EXIT STRATEGY BECAUSE THEY ARE CERTAIN THAT THE UMNO WILL REACT THE WAY THEY WANT IT. This is no longer the gentlemanly game of English Chess – it is all or nothing throw of the dice by the DAP. AND THE BN MUST NOT GIVE THEM THE LICENCE TO WIN !!!

    32. The most racist political parties in the whole country are none other than umno and mca, tuntuah.

    33. Why?

    34. Because they put their parties above rukun negara.

    35. Mubarakchan’s political views made me angry with mca more and more.

    36. Why?

    37. The difference between him and mr lee kuan yew is the later one put the country and singaporeans above pap and his family.

    38. Look at mca, they put mca above the country and malaysians.

    39. Bloody racism wont happen again as malaysians no longer have high hope on political parties to revive the economy.

    40. Ada atau tidak ada mereka, sama jugak.

    41. Look at middle east, dictatorship made the people use violent to bring down the president via arab spring which is very similar to 1989 beijing spring whereby the ruling president was forced and pressured to employ military action to crack down pro-democracy 64th student movement, to me is unfortunate and tragic, something that Ares avoidable.

    42. If there are no other races exist, malays will end up as middle east whereby they are willing to sacrifice their loved ones just to show their love for allah.

    43. I wont vote bn because I do not want my children to go through another era of mahathirism of favouritism and closed market economy.

    Salam Tun,

    Kadar pertukaran mata wang sering disalah faham sebagai melambangkan kekuatan economy sesebuah negara. Contohnya mata wang Malaysia RM2.5 = $1 mata wang Singapore. Faedah bagi Malaysia ialah barang2 Malaysia lebih murah dari segi pembeli Singapura. Dari segi nilai mata wang sepatutnya eksport Malaysia akan lebih berbanding dengan import jika dibanding dengan Singapura.

    Begitulah juga negara China mempunyai simpanan asing (foreign reserve) yang terbanyak di dunia iaitu USD 17 trillion. Simpanan yang begitu banyak adalah hasil export yang banyak. Antara sebab utama eksport begitu banyak ialah kadar pertukaran mata wang yang murah berbanding dengan mata wang asing, di samping strategy perniagaan yang bijaksana.

    Kepada Saudara Sibotak yang saya hormati,

    Saya berpendapat kemuliaan mengalah kepada negara jiran bukan melambangkan kita negara pengecut atau penakut. Seluruh dunia akan tahu siapa yahudi bakhir dan siapa islam bermurah hati.
    Saya berpendapat islam menganjurkan keamanan dengan jiran tetangga bukan confrantasi ala Sukarno ganyang Malaysia. Islam ertinya peace. salam ertinya peace. Musuh satu orang pun jangan dicari dan kawan walau satu ribu orang pun sangat dialu-alukan. Senyum ialah sedekah. Orang yang senyum kepada orang lain ialah memberi sedekah kepadanya. Bayangkan jika semua orang senyum ceria sepanjang hari, alangkah baik. Sebaliknya jika kita asik muram dan masam ce’tum sepanjang hari bagaikan hari mendung, sikit2 nak lesing orang.

    Maafkan saya jika Tuan tersinggung. Cuma kita berbeza pendapat dan kaedah.

    Assalamualaikum warahmatulahi wabarakatuh

    Selamat berpuasa di bulan Ramadhan Al- Mubarak. Maaf zahir dan batin.

    Ini article menarik untuk dibaca.

    Harap orang Melayu boleh menghayati kebolehan bangsa sendiri tanpa ragu2 keupayaan sendiri. Rasanya lately terlalu banyak asakan terhadap orang Melayu sampai kita ragu2 kebolehan sendiri. Sempena keputusan PRU banyak perkara yang perlu direnung oleh orang Melayu. Seeloknya orang Melayu dah fikir hala tuju selepas PRU 14 pula.

    Terima Kasih Tun.

  142. mubarakchan Jul 29,2013 2:05 PM

    Tun

    For WajaPerak. I have known our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is a great leader a long long time since 1970 to be precise. I still have 2 pristine copies of his book which I have not read. He fits into the 3 Golden Attributes to be a Prime Minister, (i) Commonsense (ii) The Abiility to Think out of a Box (iii) Compassion. HE IS NO FAKE. During his 22 year Administration, the Tun safeguarded our beloved Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, SELF-ESTEEM.
    All his critics and detractors have been proven wrong not by his own efforts but by the collapse of the failed Policies of titans who so badly wanted to be titans. He just followed a routine with his famous notebook which is a doctor’s habit. As I have always said his closest aides let him down by saying ‘yes’ when they should say ‘no’. I dare say that the Tun with his predecessors brought up the standing of the modern Malays during his Administration in particular with the emergence of the Malay middle income group which is to be found in all the urban areas of Malaysia. And did our Tun abolish the vernacular schools during his time, HBT456 ? The fact is not only did these schools expanded but also new higher educational facilities were encouraged to expand to provide for local and overseas students.

    THE DILEMMA OF MALAYSIA TODAY IS THE DILEMMA OF THE DE-TRIBALIZED CHINESE who look Chinese but is hollow without cultural ballast who is neither East nor West and is NOT EVEN ‘A YELLOW BANANA’ quote Chou En Lai 1956.

  145. Megat Terawis Jul 29,2013 11:31 AM

    Assalamualaikum,

    I really don’t have much to say. I just want to drop a few notes thanking Tun for his exemplary leadership. If it is not because of the present situation I wouldn’t know how great you are. If it is not because of the leaders that we have today, I might not going to know how bless we are to have you as our leader all the while.

    I noticed you don’t like people singing praises about you. There is no road named after you. You are humble, realistic, smart and well mannered. You have developed this country from a poor agricultural country into 6th in the world industrial powerhouse. After you stepped down all hell let loose.

    The dog you kept last time is biting the hands that feeds. People are now fairly divided. What a gloomy future for Malaysia. There may be money coming in but I just don’t feel as good as it is during your tenure where people are living in harmony, no ‘sakit hati’ being insulted on daily basis just because you upheld the bangsa Melayu and Agama Islam. The most thing that drive me crazy is to see my own bangsa Melayu insulting and downgrading bangsa Melayu and Islam itself.

    I wish we can have another leader that is able to defend our pride in this land. I might be living in bungalow, driving luxury car earning big time salary and bonus now but I just don’t have what it feels during your days. It is the feeling of ‘peace’ in my mind.

    Maybe we need another civil war before all these bigots could learn to respect each other.

    For TeohHockBeng654. Let me tell you on one of your on–liners that your hero the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore abolished all the Chinese vernacular schools and the Nanyang University very early on during his rule in Singapore. AND UP IN MALAYSIA WHERE THE MALAYS ARE IN MAJORITY AND HAD BEEN ACCOMMODATING TO THEIR FELLOW COMPATRIOTS, WE HAVE THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP DEFENDING RIGOROUSLY THE VERNACULAR SCHOOLS (which are safeguarded by the Constitution) and sought the abolishment of the ISA WHICH SINGAPORE RETAINS TO THIS DAY. I say HOCKBENGTEOH456 IT IS DIFFICULT TO BE A DAP LEADERS ! Is it one for you and two for me ? If you need R & R at the Woodbridge Resort, please let me know.

Stop your one liners and present your facts on my Comments. OTHERWISE I AM FORCED TO REFER YOU TO WOODBRIDGE, SINGAPORE WHICH I AM QUALIFIED TO DO SO.

    In the meantime, how can you talk on political socio-economic subjects without a Malay bias in our beloved Malaysia ? One day you said you are Malaysian. On another, you said you are from China. TO ME YOU ARE JUST A DE-TRIBALISED CHINAMAN WHO IS HOLLOW AND HAS NO CULTURAL BALLAST AND IS NEITHER EAST NOR WEST – at least the yellow bananas are better than you !

    29. Malaysian market is small, therefore, in order to survive, manufacturing companies like any other countries’ exporters, need to do more exports to sustain.

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    Mohon izin Tun:

    For ”HBT456” July 27, 2013 at 5:19 PM:-

    My answers (=>):

    10. Wake up puan hajar, we are now heading developed status economy whereby race and religion no longer influence the voting patterns.

    => If race and religion no longer influence the voting patterns, why do you think we still have UMNO and PAS? You are the one who is still sleeping. UMNO won 88 seats; Penipu Rakyat won 89 (DAP+PKR+PAS).

    11. Umno’s opponents are pkr and pas, and their kubu in kampung are as strong as umno.

    => UMNO’s main OPPONENT is DAP (race-based party; Chinese)

    13. If not because of felda, umno dah hilang kuasa long2 time ago.

    => Not applicable..but since you believe so, UMNO must be so smart for having FELDA just to stay in power. The rest of the world must try this formula.

    14. Mca and other chinese political parties in bn have lost our political votes shown that chinese is the 1st race in malaysia that is no longer view ourselves as chinese.

    => Ha..ha..ha..I am still laughing…please request DAP to support those who propose that we have only 1 type of schools in Malaysia; NO MORE CHINESE SCHOOL…

    14. We view ourselves as malaysian.

    => Ha..ha..ha..’Malaysian’, but you still want ‘Chinese’ Schools.

    15. Water is a must have for human survival from humanitarian angle, therefore, we cannot use water supply as a threat to repress our jiran.

    => Please EDUCATE YOUR FRIENDS in Singapore about being a good ‘JIRAN’.

    16. Water is not a commodity nor business to kait keuntungan negara kita.

    => In that case may be Singapore should just ‘donate’ the treated water to Malaysia since we are kind enough to provide the raw water for only 3 sen per 1000 gallons.

    Thanks Tun.

    For HockBengTeoh456 alone. With the DEFEAT OF THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES IN THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS, THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP WILL HAND OVER A CONQUERED MALAYSIA COMPLETE WITH A FREE MARKET TO THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE TO SAVE HIS LEGACY. The DAP has already failed in ONE EASY STEP to deliver in 1997, 2008 and 2013 through the ballot box.
    IS OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS GOVERNED BY THE BN AS LED BY THE UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES IS GOING TO BE SCREWED PROPERLY FROM THE REAR VIA THE TPPA BY SINGAPORE AGAIN ? Killing all birds with one stone by Singapore so to speak ? Remember 1962 ! Remember the CLOB ! Remember etc.etc. !

  152. mubarakchan Jul 28,2013 10:45 PM

    Tun

    Kudos for HockBengTeoh456. Let me explain to you why our fellow compatriots the Malays and the BN as led by UMNO with the 13 component parties MUST NOT FAIL in the 14th General Elections and many general elections thereafter.
    If Malaysia signs the TPPA today, cheaper manufactured goods from efficient and productive developed countries like SINGAPORE will flood in either Singapore manufactured or TPP developed countries manufactured because of their huge capacity and annual growth. With the Malaysian market flooded with such goods and a bureacracy not geared to deal with a new phenomenon, there is no reaction from the authorities. More manufactured goods flood in UNTIL these reached a point when our Bumiputra and non-Bumiputra manufacturing industries cannot compete. ALL WILL CLOSE DOWN as we are a nascent developing country still reaching certain goals to be on par with other lower ranking countries. Unemployment shoots up from the workers retrenced from the closed down factories. The country’s revenue from manufacturing activities is reduced substantially maybe only making belachan survives. One leg of our beloved country’s revenue has kaput leaving oil and gas, and palm oil exports. WE ARE TOLD WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A GREAT DEPRESSION QUIETLY AND WILL TAKE AT LEAST ANOTHER 5-8 YEARS TO RECOVER. (No one guarantees this). EVEN IF THE OIL AND GAS AND PALM OIL EXPORTS CAN BE MAINTAIN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS ALREADY IN THE RED FOR 2 REASONS. MONEY IS REQUIRED FOR (i) Recurrent Expenditure (ii) Development. concomitant with a depreciation of the Malaysian Ringgit. With the latter’s weakness, imported goods and services which now keep on flooding in because of the TPP and these are going to be more expensive – GIVING RISE TO THE GENERAL COST OF LIVING FOR ALL AND A SHARP OUTCRY FOR HIGHER WAGES TO OFFSET INFLATION

    – EVERY ONE WILL BLAME THE BN GOVERNMENT AS LED BY UMNO WITH THE 13 COMPONENT PARTIES. The authorities will be slow to react because there would not be much funds in the Treasury. THE OPPOSITION WILL JUMP IN AND BLAME THE BN GOVERNMENT AND POUR MORE OIL ON THE FIRE.
    THE BN GOVERNMENT LOSES THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS WITH ALL THE CONSEQUENCES WHICH WILL HAPPEN TO OUR TRADITIONAL MALAY HERITAGE AND CONVENTIONS, THE MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP WITH THE NON-MALAYS RECEDE BACKWARDS IN THEIR LIFE-STYLE AND STANDARD OF LIVING. THE WORKING PEOPLE WILL BE UNEMPLOYED – THE PERCENTAGE WILL SHOOT UP. NEW GRADUATES WILL FIND IT HARD TO GET JOBS BECAUSE FACTORIES, BUSINESSES AND ANCILLARY SUPPORT SERVICES ALL CLOSED DOWN. All Malaysians are now consumers of the manufactured goods of the developed countries of the TPP in which SINGAPORE IS THE MAIN BENEFICIARY TO OUR MISFORTUNE IN SIGNING THE TPPA. Chaos and anarchy reign in the country. And the RINGGIT KEEPS ON DEPRECIATING VIS-A-VIS THE US DOLLAR.

    Please note HockBengTeoh456, THE TPPA DOES NOT GUARANTEE ONE IOTA OF GAIN OR PROFIT FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. IT IS A DOG EATS DOG TYPE OF FREE MARKET AGREEMENT IN WHICH THE STRONGEST AND THE MOST DARING WIN THE DOLLARS AND CENTS ! Yes! In terms of organised actions like what happened to us with the CLOB, SINGAPORE IS WAY WAY AHEAD OF US TO CLEAN US OUT ! Remember 1962 ! Remember the CLOB ! Remember etc.etc. !

    IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT TO HAPPEN TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER CITIZENS, HOCKBENGTEOH456 ?

  153. mubarakchan Jul 28,2013 1:49 PM

    Tun

    For HockBengTeoh456. You mean you rather see your fellow compatriots the Malays with their heritage and legacy of centuries past go down the chute. Why you so hate the Malays ? I do not. I presented facts to warn all that we excluding you alone, should be aware of Greeks bearing gifts. In the case of the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore the catch was the re-sale of processed water without building the water processing plant. NOW WE END UP GIVING SINGAPORE FREE WATER WHICH WE PAY TO GIVE THE FREE WATER. Understand TeohBengHock654 ! And now Singapore with the same Management as in 1962 wants to screw us from the back a second time via the TPPA as they are more efficient and productive vis-a-vis the Bumiputra and non-Bumiputra industries. MALAYSIA RELIES ON THE EXPORT OF OIL AND GAS, AND PALM OIL not manufactured goods which we lag behind. With the signing of the TPPA, overnight Malaysia is an open market for Singapore which will sell to us manufactured goods from there or points afar.
    THE BN AND UMNO WILL DEFINITELY LOSE THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS AND THEREAFTER THE DEMISE OF THE MALAY WORLD OF PEACE, STABILITY, PROSPERITY AS WE KNOW IT TOGETHER WITH THE NON-MALAYS. ALL BUMIPUTRA AND NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES WILL BE FINISHED BY THE FLOOD OF IMPORTED MANUFACTURED GOODS IN A JIFFY. THE MALAY AND NON-MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUPS WILL BE IN BIG BIG TROUBLE. UNEMPLOYMENT WILL SHOOT UP. INFLATION WILL BE UNCONTROLLED. CHAOS AND ANARCHY WILL REIGN. BY WINNING THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS THE DAP DELIVERS THE CONQUERED MALAYSIA TO THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW WITH HIS 9 FAILED POLICIES FOR SINGAPORE – TO SAVE HIS FAILED LEGACY AT OUR EXPENSE, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE (excluding you TeohBengHock654), THE INDIANS AND ALL. THE NUB OF THE MALAY WORLD WHICH HAS BEEN SO VERY SUCCESSFUL WILL BE DESTROYED BY OUR OWN STUPIDITY OVERNIGHT. We will seek to borrow from foreigners who will be arrogant and reluctant. Ee – eh – ee- eh for you HockBengTeoh456 – this is your death wish or song for our beloved Malaysia and all its citizens.

    Salam, I might miss the point here,why do we need Singapore to treat our water.Is it difficult to construct water treatment plant?.we do not have technology to do that?.
    What abou other states like Selangor,Perak, Trengganu, what kind of water that these people drink.
    I cannot see the logic why we need to be
    in the same position when dealing with Singapore.
    Is there some individual benefit from this kind of arrangement.
    Last but not least, Malaysia must grow up,dont be like small children even we already 56 years old (retirement age).We must take care of our interest and don’t let other dictate us.We might as well call the mighty British Empire to rule us again.We are not fit to be independent.

    17. The view of mubarak chan agreed by balance has shown Malaysians once again that they vote based on race line.

    18. To them, they always see money first as if Malaysian voters like me are being generally perceived as materialistic and monetary motivated kind of kurang ajar kaum tionghua.

    19. Every decision that we made associated with risk factors that must be solved.

    20. Even if we walk in the unknown street, we may face risk factor of being robbed.

    21. Lobby cost is accumulated in GDP and GNI, it is a macro economics operating expenses spent by the ministry to create income in which we could earn back via aggregate supply and demand in state, national or global scale depending the micro economics activities in business networking and expertise that they have accumulated from the past.

    22. Instead of jumping into the shallow and stagnant conclusion, put yourselves in their shoes, and ask, can you do it?

    23. If you cant, stay and vote in penang or kelantan to biarkan negerimu hujan batu, biar negeriku hujan emas since the population of selangor and kl reached 10 millions, that is 30 percent of the total population.

    24. Why you compare yourselves with singapore?

    25. Singapore is the smallest country that rules by common law, and no one can escape if they found guilty in the court.

    26. If you do not like our judiciary system, make sure your children become lawyers or judges one day so that you will learn from them.

    27. Always thinks the world owes you, and takut to take risks, then dont pinpoint others who worked hard in getting the tenders.

    Abang Amin Tan menulis ayat baik.

    Dalam tasawuf fasa menjauhkan diri dari masyarakat amat penting ketika di awal amalan.

    Seperti sejarah di mana Rasulullah s.a.w menyendiri di gua hira’

    Begitulah seperti yang ditulis oleh mana mana ulama tasawuf yang mashyur.

    Begitulah juga cara kita memandang sekolah pondok. Jauh terpinggir.

    Cannot agree with you more. You are right about how bad the current situation where work for the best interest of Malaysia is not important anymore just more money in the pocket is important.

    BN or PKR they are the same – they only care of self interest but who can blame them they see others taking billions

    For once i agree with you Sir. It is not about who is right it is about who can pay. The lobbing people are very strong and very rich too.

    Salam Tun,

    Izinkan saya ambil petikan Saudara ‘SIBOTAK’ seperti berikut,

    Sausara Sibotak yang saya hormati,
    Izinkan saya pertahankan dasar kerajaan kita Malaysia sekarang berbandingkan dengan dasar duniawi kafirun Singapora yang ala yahudi. Dasar Malaysia ialah dasar islam yang prihatin, inclusive, bertimbang rasa, berbudi bahasa. Islam menganjurkan bersedekah kepada fakir miskin, anak2 yatim, tidak tipu dan bersifat adil dalam perniagaan. Cuba baca Surah Wadhuha. Orang2 Islam lebih melabur untuk akhirat. Orang2 kafir tiada beriman kepada akhirat. Pada mereka duit ialah segala2nya. Biarlah. Jangan pula kita ditipu oleh mereka supaya menjadi seperti mereka, iaitu addeen (cara hidup kita memeluk cara hidup duniawi semata2) kita dipengaruhi cara kafirun dan yahudi yang bakhir dan perkauman serta assabiah.
    Izinkan saya jawab satu persatu hujah sibitak yang saya muliakan,

    Salam YAB & diKasihi Tun,

    1. Tahniah, kerana UMNO/BN menang di Kuala Besut. Namun demikian DSN tidak boleh kata yang sokongan terhadap UMNO/BN bertambah kuat. DSN masih lagi dalam ‘denial’ tentang penolakan kaum Cina & dan sebahagian besar kaum India terhadap BN..

    2. Memang majoriti Melayu masih lagi memilih UMNO, tetapi dengan keadaan pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO terutamanya DSN yang masih lagi tidak sedar-sedar tentang kepentingan untuk menjaga hati kaum Melayu/Bumiputra, sokongan orang Melayu/Bumiputra terhadap UMNO/BN akan lambat-laun terhakis sedikit demi sedikit. Jangan nanti bila sudah terlewat, baru menyesal.

    3. Apa yang saya nampak selepas PRU-13, majoriti pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO termasuk DSN masih lagi TIDAK ADA KEBERANIAN untuk membela/mempertahan kepentingan kaum MELAYU yang semakin mudah untuk dilanyak dari segenap sudut sehinggakan saya sendiri berasa hairan/pelik sebab ternampak seolah-olah MELAYU BUKANNYA kaum MAJORITI di Malaysia.

    4. Kaum MINORITI pula yang berlebih-lebih mendapat sokongan padu dari pemimpin-pemimpin BN/UMNO. Adakah BN mendapat kemenangan di PRU-13 dan mandat untuk memerintah disebabkan oleh sokongan dari kaum-kaum MINORITI ini yang masih lagi ditatang bagai minyak yang penuh? Jawapannya ialah ‘TIDAK’.

    5. DSN & pemimpin-pemimpin BN yang lain kena sedar (lihat saja keputusan PRK Kuala Besut) yang BN/UMNO dapat mandat pada PRU-13 adalah disebabkan sokongan dari kaum Melayu/Bumiputra. DSN, “Please wake up…”

    6. 1Malaysia ‘GAGAL’… Pelan/Program Transformasi Kerajaan ’GAGAL’… Kita sudah jadi sekurang-kurangnya 3-Malaysia (’Polarisasi Kaum’), dan kita sedang/akan ditransformasikan kepada bangsa/negara yang kembali DI JAJAH dengan adanya perjanjian TPP.

    7. SISA-SISA KEJAYAAN yang masih tinggal/ada pada masa kini adalah hasil kerja kuat Tun Mahathir selama 22 tahun dan PM terdahulu, tapi ianya juga akan lambat-laun terhakis. Tun mesti tolong kami pertahankan apa yang masih tinggal dari dilelong oleh mereka yang cetek pemikiran dan yang tidak belajar dari kesilapan yang lalu – jangan lagi TERJERAT dengan ’perjanjian berat sebelah’ seperti apa yang berlaku pada perjanjian air dengan Singapura – ”Jerat tidak akan lupakan pelanduk..”

    Asalam’kum Tun,

    I accidentally tune in to TV1 last night. Did you watch the program, Forum Perdana (Landskap) around 10.00pm. The topic was on TPPA. They were using Video conferencing with a chap from Penang, Dr. Lim. The other panelist is a chap from MITI and MTEN. He, Dr. Lim gave examples of the dangers of some of these Agreements. He cited what happens in Thailand. Fine.

    Dr. Lim mention other examples like “Capital Controls” and “Intellectual and Patent Rights” and the consequences. Guess what the response from our chap from MITI? Quote ” .. we did discuss about it (capital controls) ….” Is that the response you would expect, especially after the round of negotiations?
    He, chap from MITI, remark ” we have signed many

    Asalam’kum Tun,
    Sorry I accidentally hit the “ENTER” button. Back to where I left.
    Next he mention “we have signed many Trade Agreements with other countries.”. He thinks that TPPA is just like any other Trade Agreements.
    Does our goons (pardon my using of the language) know who and what they are dealing with?
    What did they do during the negotiations in KK (Kota Kinabalu) recently. It seems to me they are on holidays.
    They “talk about it (Capital controls). Just talk?? They were suppose to “NEGOTIATE” not “TALK”
    I’am appealing to you Tun, as a concerned citizen, this need to be stopped, immediately!!
    Our country’s future is in their hands. It seems to me, from what I heard last night, that those goons from MITI does NOT know what they are doing.
    Another thing came to my mind, Please tell Ajib Gor that his Honeymoon is over. If this is the kind of of TRANSFORMATION we receive, then I would wish our “Iron Lady” be there.
    If these are the people that Ajib Gor selects for his team, I am deeply concerned for the nation’s future.

    Tun

    As we are all honourable men and women under the Sun, we are not used to sneaky ways and means to take advantage of us and our beloved Malaysia especially at the international level. Tun you will be the first to agree that we are all for fair play, free markets and free flow of capital in and out of our shores. But for us to sacrifice our own hardwork of putting up a credible Malaysian Society which is sustainable and viable and dynamic, is definitely not acceptable – the sort of carpetbagging jobs of the Wild West in order to recoup for monetary losses due to ill-thought of schemes and greed. In our beloved Malaysia’s case, I HAVE NEVER KNOWN OUR OWN COUNTRY BEING THE SORT WHICH TAKES ADVANTAGE OF OTHERS since I was born. As we now see from facts that this sort of behaviour does not pay. And when the payback comes, it comes in spades. People might say that this is the way of the World, the strong bullies the weak. But then, I say, that our beloved Malaysia IS NOT WEAK BUT WE EXPRESS OUR COMPASSION IN A CIVILISED AND HUMAN WAY IN ALL OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER COUNTRIES. But only one country took it upon themselves to be way above us even though we are definitely not in the competition. We mind our own business which is sensible. BUT TO OUR CONSTERNATION WE SEE HOW THE MIGHTY AND GREAT FALL WITH A LOUD BANG ! How to hide all the ugly details of such a gigantic fall in this age of social media which cuts BOTH WAYS ? From the mistakes of others who want to be great, very great, it pays for all of us especially those in command of duties and responsibilities to be normal. This will help us to go far, very far.
    Some view the development of the Iskandar Project as one-sided to benefit Singapore especially with the cancellation of the crooked bridge project. How many of us stood directly opposite the Singapore CIQ Complex which is seen to be an eye-jarring black object with Feng Shui principles ? And yet, our beloved Malaysia progressed willy-nilly. And hopefully, like other concerned nations in the World, we must not regret at sometime in the future that the whole of Johor is owned by foreigners or owned by Singapore. In the meantime, we are all for free markets and free capital markets for investment.

    The more I mulled over the points which I raised in my comments on your distinguished Blog, the more I am convinced that if the Federal Government signs the TPP today, the greater is the likelihood that the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 components will lose the 14th General Elections. This is because Malaysia would have sacrificed the very own people, her Bumiputra and non-Bumiputras businesses which traditionally supported the BN Government. The best our beloved Malaysia can do for the TPP is to wait until after the 14th General Elections. The Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP has failed to deliver a conquered Malaysia to Lee Kuan Yew to save his legacy for 47 long years since 1966. We can also wait until Malaysia is more efficient and productive since we have been accused by the very people to be inefficient and non-productive – in support of the latter’s contention it does not make sense for Malaysia to join now. We will kill ourselves in doing so.

  167. mubarakchan Jul 26,2013 11:42 PM

    Tun

    And for all Bloggers who think the last 13th General Elections and the 12th General Elections is just a game, we must thank the Tun, the Prime Minister, Dato Seri Najib and all those UMNO and Malay supporters who came together to ensure that the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties won legitimately and by a wide margin. THIS IS THE NUB OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S CONTINUING PEACE, STABILITY AND PROSPERITY. Why should we exchange these GOLDEN VIRTUES WHICH HAVE STOOD US IN GOODSTEAD SINCE 1957 FOR CHAOS AND ANARCHY provided the BN observes the absolute rule of the laws, implements fair and transparent policies, maintains a normal functioning bureacracy and eschew doing business with the GLCs ? The Opposition which has already lost legitimately cannot do anything to the BN which they tried to push around all the time.

  168. mubarakchan Jul 26,2013 11:30 PM

    Tun

    And why is Singapore so keen to rope in our beloved Malaysia into the TPP ? The answer is in the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore which incurred titanic losses since October 2008 – the fat which Singapore had accumulated since the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s right up to October 2008, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, sanctions against Myamar etc. the CLOB, undeclared trading activities, cash inflows etc.etc. The titanic losses post October 2008 have to be recovered. But unfortunately today is today and yesterday was yesterday. So. our beloved Malaysia looks temptingly ripe for another round of good business. Hence, the TPP with the following interesting words coming from the mouth of a distinguished MP,’ It is OK. The Committee will safeguard our national interest. We must catch up since Brunei and Singapore are also in TPP.’ And in some other quarters, it was even mentioned that our beloved Malaysia will have access to a huge market. Do these guys know that our beloved Malaysia is comfortable BECAUSE OF OUR PALM OIL AND PETROLEUM EXPORTS. WE GAIN PEANUTS BY EXPORTING MANUFACTURED GOODS. The TPP opens up OUR BACKDOOR FOR INTRUDERS TO FINISH OFF WHATEVER BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES CONCOMITANT WITH NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES WHICH HAVE BEEN BUILT UP SINCE 1981 ! And again the huge middle income group of Malays and non-Malays will be destroyed and political instability REIGNS ! As long as the 90% of the Chinese, Malaysian Chinese, remain RECALCITRANT, and do not join the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties, it is dangerous and asking for trouble by joining the TPP at the present time. It is like playing English Chess blindfolded. But if these recalcitrant Chinese support the BN, A BRAND NEW GAME WITH A SOLID FUTURE UNFOLDS – the future for our beloved Malaysia will be great, very great.

  169. PakCik Jul 26,2013 11:26 PM

    Greetings to Tun and everybody,

    Malays are kind-hearted people and the majority of the ministers, KSU and senior officers who are involved in government-related negos are malays, right?

    The other side, especially the Singaporean officials know about this and used the malays kindness, highly tolerant, penyabar (and not excluding bodoh sombong) to their advantages.

    A friend of mine who was a navy senior officer then had told me how the Singaporean officials would put a lot of efforts in trying to be nice in order to acquire our sensitive infos during negotiations. But this friend of mine is an assertive person and would not allowed nonsense.

    But again, the highest ranking decision-makes are still the minister and KSU. If these people are too lazy to get to know what’s going on, then I will not be surprised if the officers involved in the nego may act according to his whims and fancies. Or he could even be bribed to favour the other party. That’s why I believed the minister and KSU should be held responsible.

    Or what if these people are from the opposition parties? These culprits are known to favour Singapore!

  170. mubarakchan Jul 26,2013 10:40 PM

    Tun

    As always, you have brought up 2 important issues which have affected or going to affect the conduct and will of our beloved Malaysia. The issues, the TTP and the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore are linked togehter like the Gemini Twins. Why ?

    1. In 1962, before we could say ‘Malaysia’, our beloved country and its citizens were bound together in a strait-jacket of an Agreement for 100 years on terms which were entirely one-sided without recourse to arbitration, revision, foreign exchange fluctuation, inflation, free market prices etc.etc. IN OTHER WORDS, THE AGREEMENT WAS DONE IN A HURRY IN AN OPAQUE FASHION.

    2. The magnificent 7 of the TPP Grouping in which Singapore is connected is the 2013 version of the controversial 1962 Agreement with Singapore – the title is transparent but the nitty-gritty of the Devil in the details is not. Of this proposed Grouping only Malaysia stands out AS THE DEVELOPING COUNTRY WITH THE LONGEST DEMOCRATIC HISTORY – 1957 – 2013. Since SINGAPORE IS A DEVELOPED COUNTRY NEAREST TO MALAYSIA, SHE IS ENTERING THROUGH THE BACK-DOOR VIA THE TPP WHILST THE FRONT DOOR IS BARRED TO HER FROM OUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES. How ? Being a developed country with efficient and productive facilities, Singapore, has created a free market overnight on her very doorstep. liebenstraum of Hitler’s vintage – for her goods and services vis-a-vis Malaysia which still lags behind because of the political-socio-economic hiatus between 2003 – 2013. Singapore will use every trick in the book to rope MALAYSIA INTO THE TPP AND WE WILL BE ECONOMIC SLAVES IN THE FIRST INSTANCE AND POLITICAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC SLAVES IN THE SECOND INSTANCE IF THE SINGAPOREAN TROJAN HORSE DAP GAINS POWER TO CONQUER MALAYSIA IN THE 14TH GENERAL ELECTIONS – the DAP has already said that this will be their intention and confirmed by their daily actions.
    Under the guise of the TPP, like the attempts of the IMF to gain control of our beloved Malaysia through legitimate Agreements, the opening up of the Malaysian market to superior, efficient and productive countries at a time our beloved Malaysia is struggling to do catch up, is not only SAYONARA it is HARA-KIRI ! ALL THE BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES CONCOMITANT WITH THE NON-BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES CAN KISS THE RINGGIT GOOD-BYE !

    MALAYSIA WOULD HAVE SIGNED HER OWN DEATH WARRANT and would be dependent on HAND-OUTS FROM RELUCTANT AND DEMANDING DONORS FROM THEN ON !

    How do I know all this ? I was the last Malaysian industrialist in the real sense of the word in the 1970s by turning round the biggest corporate scandal in Malaysia in the 1970s without a single sen of support from the Consortium of Banks which were repaid in full plus interest.

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL GO BACK TO THE STONE AGE IF WE CANNOT STAND AGAINST OPEN COMPETITION AGAINST SUPERIOR, EFFICIENT AND PRODUCTIVE COUNTRIES. Sime Darby is not a conglomerate – IT IS NOW AN ELEGANT BRITISH TYPE-TRADING HOUSE WITHOUT THE EMPIRE PREFERENCE. Malaysia has no corporate entity apart from PETRONAS which can withstand against the full onslaught of OPEN COMPETITION.
    Let us not be taken up by our recent hype that our beloved Malaysia is going places. To do so, many many moons of focussed hard-work will have to be achieved in this TURBULENT WORLD.

    There lies the difference. The 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore is FRONTAL but opaque. The TPP for Malaysia vis-a-vis is transparent as regards its title but the Devil in the details nitty-gritty are opaque – the POSTERIOR APPROACH. This is the killer for all local industries AT THE PRESENT TIME UNTIL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA PULLS UP HER SOCKS TO RUN WITH THE REST OF THE DEVELOPED WORLD COMMUNITY. Until then…………

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya rasa perunding perjanjian untuk negara tidaklah bodoh.

    Tapi ini tak bermakna water for singapore itu beri kelebihan pada Malaysia.

    Saya tak tahu keseluruhan perjanjian tersebut.

    Tapi kalau saya nak bagi nasihat pada pemimpin, saya takkan tulis terang terang pada public.

    Sebab nasihat saya melibatkan nasihat panglima (ketenteraan) dan ulama (kefahaman Islam).

    Mungkin juga pada pemimpin tersebut juga saya tak terangkan. Melainkan beliau akan tahu sendiri apabila menuruti nasihat tersebut.

    Agaknya begitulah susahnya jadi perunding perjanjian untuk negara sampai jual air dengan harga paling murah.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    The TITLE should have been “SUBSIDIZED WATER FOR SINGAPORE”.

    1. Malaysia can only buy 12% of the treated water from Singapore at 50 sen per 1000 gallons. What if Malaysia wants to buy more that 12%? Of course the price is no longer 50 sen per 1000 gallons.

    2. So, Singapore has 88% of treated water left to be sold to whoever for whatever price; I believe that the selling price is much HIGHER than the cost for treating the water (plus the 3 sen per 1000 gallons paid to Malaysia 🙁 ). In addition, Singapore is charging in Singapore dollar.

    3. Singapore is making a lot of money out of the 3 sen per 1000 gallons of water Johor provides. Only those who do NOT KNOW HOW TO CALCULATE CORRECTLY will conclude that Malaysia is benefiting from this ‘foolish’ agreement.

    4. I wonder what we can buy nowadays for 3 sen -> NOTHING…I agree with Tun;. 3 sen per 1000 gallons is really RIDICULOUS. How can anyone justify the price? Even when I pay for my bills, 3 sen will be rounded up to 5 sen..

    5. Furthermore, Johor is selling water to Malacca for 30 sen per 1000 gallons. Is Singapore such a poor country that we need to subsidize the price of water sold to it? This too is so RIDICULOUS. A poorer nation is subsidizing a very rich nation.

    Thanks Tun.

    *** May Allah SWT bless Tun and family ***

    For the smart Blogger who could work out that Malaysia could make money by selling to Singapore 3 sen for 1000 gallons of water. There is no doubt he is very good at maths, very good. So good he thought he could take the mickey out of us. I now show his win-win formula is not only flawed it is fraud !

    1. The Water Agreement is one-sided with no revision for 100 years based on 3 sens per 1000 gallons. There is no currency fluctuation or escape or revision clause. This gives the impression that either Malaysia is the master and Singapore the Colony or something else.
    2. Arising from the strait jacket Agreement, it is tantamount that MALAYSIA NOT ONLY GIVES AWAY WATER TO SINGAPORE FREE BUT ALSO PAYS MONEY TO SINGAPORE IN THE GIVING OF SUCH WATER TO SINGAPORE. I suppose it goes with the saying ‘you pays what you get.’
    3. By coming to this distinguished Blog, the purported rocket scientist with the compunction of doing simple artihmetic, is blatantly exhibiting his high-faluting attitude towards us in the ULUS. That was 1962. We are in 2013 now, dear rocket scientist from or for Singapore.
    4. The millions of tonnes of free water and subsidized by Malaysia since 1962 maybe considered a free gift of generosity from the peoples of Malaysia to the people of Singapore. As I have shown in the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore, THIS GENEROSITY DID NOT BENEFIT THE PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE – it was like water down the drain. And being generous, this kind act by Malaysia is not appreciate and she faced ridicule and all sorts of snide remarks from others since 1962. And it was alleged that when Malaysia required a temporary loan from Singapore, she was quoted commercial rates. And free Water ?
    5. All these extraneous matters which should have been raised by the rocket scientist if he has any commonsense are that there is a direct bearing on the TPP which is being negotiated by THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CHIEF NEGOTIATOR WHO IS SLIGHT OF FRAME AND HIS GENTLE SHOULDERS BEAR THE HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS OF THE ONLY DEMOCRATICALLY DEVELOPING COUNTRY SINCE 1957 WHICH POPULATION IS 27 MILLIONS (in that grouping of Nations which includes Vietnam and Peru). My observation is that it is a tad too early for Malaysia to join these developed countries and as we can only be consumers, all our nascent industries will be snuffed out by the efficient and productive developed countries, like Singapore etc. Hey ! SINGAPORE AGAIN ! Remember folks the same Singapore of 1962 ! The same Management too ! Please do not joke ! And Malaysia has been losing money, assets, territories, etc, most of these to Singapore, in peace time WITHOUT GOING TO WAR !!! Please do not joke ! Too many such jokes already !

    HENCE, MAN PROPOSED. GOD DISPOSED. This is the only way Malaysia maybe treated fairly. Insyallah !

    I would like to add my further observation on the comments of the Blogger who tells us that we actually made money by selling 1000 gallons of raw water at 3 sen to Singapore. A small point is that the Malaysian ringgit has depreciated against the Singapore dollar since the 1980s. There should have been a currency fluctuation clause as well. Hence, it actually costs Singapore only 1 ct. per 1000 gallons. We have been giving this water free or ex gratis since the 1980s. Even on this score, Singapore should be amiable enough to accomodate the adjustment. But then, since 1959, Singapore has had a policy of focussing on black is black and white is white. And the Devil is in the details. This Policy put everything into a strait jacket with no hope of accomodation to adjust if mistakes happen – the mistakes become legalised mistakes. And so it is. Our beloved Malaysia ended up in a strait jacket of a Water Agreement with a facetious bent ! OK ! Smart, we are forced to accept reality ! HOWEVER, MAN PROPOSED AND GOD DISPOSED ! If we extrapolate this free water to Singapore and the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore, then, IT IS LIKE WATER DOWN A DRAIN. The Singaporeans gained nothing from this wonderful free largesse from Malaysia since 1962. I repeat again with your kind permission for the edification of the mathematically minded Blogger who wants to convince us in the Ulus that giving away water free is MAKING MONEY, (no wonder in peacetime, Malaysia has lost money, assets, territories etc after 2003 than in a War) the 9 failed Policies of the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew for Singapore :-
    1. Money was used as investment of Foreign Policy which killed, maimed or injured innocent men, women and children. Malaysia has no such blood on her hands. Vide. Thaksin. Bangkok riots.
    2. The loss of US$108 Billions (RM350 Billions) by the dysfunctional meritocratic pyramid of yes men with the smartes fellow on top, of Trust money in October 2008 on Wall Street. Vide. Channelnewsasia. Lee Kuan Yew November 2008. All Singaporean Blogs. 2009-2013. Financial Times London. Gillian Tett. April 2010. The Star. Seah Chiang Nee Saturday Columns.
    3. The 2 Child Family Policy. This is the killer. In 1959, the indigenous population was 100%. In 2013 – 62%. 2030 – 45%. Vide. Singapore Government White Paper on Population.
    4. Humanity and Multiculturalism not practised in Singapore. Vide. Channelnewsasia. The Curry Smell Tribunal. 2011. The 188 bus drivers strike. 2012. The toilet fights. 2012 etc.
    5. The perfunctory Judiciary which is well-known throughout the World. Vide. The unfortunate and fortunate. Mr Chee. The unfortunate Tan Koon Swan. Aussie and German drug mules. Dr Woffles Wu. Shaw. (If the Police stopped at 1, he would not be in trouble. But they stopped at 51. Poor girl !) etc.
    6. 5,000 pigs imported daily. The flower nurseries contracts. King of the Road. The sale of Kim Eng Securities to Maybank. etc.etc.
    7. The highest paid officials in the World. Vide. Warren Buffet.
    8. The Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP was created in 1966 either directly or indirectly. For 47 long years it did nothing but comtemplated their navels. From 2008, the DAP was all sound and fury but failed to deliver a conquered Malaysia to Lee Kuan Yew to save his legacy in ONE EASY STEP SINCE 1997!
    9. Lee Kuan Yew has been in power since 1959 and he is still there. During this period, our beloved Malaysia has had 6 democratically elected Prime Ministers.

    From the above, Tun, our water which was literally given to the Singaporeans free since 1962 because of the strait jacket Water Agreement, show that THE WATER LITERALLY DOWN THE DRAIN AS IT DID NOT BENEFIT THE SINGAPOREANS ONE LITTLE IOTA !

    WATER IS A COMMERCIAL PRODUCT
    PRICE BASE ON DEMAND & SUPPLY

    IT MUST NOT BE OF HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS
    HUMANITARIAN GROUND IS SUBJECT TO DISASTER
    BASED ON COMPASSIONATE HUMANITARIAN REASONS

    SINGAPORE IS A RICH NATIONS
    THEY HAVE BILLIONS OF RESERVES
    YES THEY DO NOT HAVE NATURAL RESOURCES
    BUT YET WITH THEIR NO RESOURCES THEY EARN MUCH MORE
    THAN NATIONS THAT HAVE RESOURCES

    THEY DO NOT PRODUCE CARS
    YET THE GOVT EARN MUCH MUCH MORE FROM THE CAR PRODUCERS
    JUST WITH A PIECE OF CERTFICATE OF ENTITELMENT PAPERS
    THAT PIECE OF PAPER COST 2 CARS IN MALAYSIA
    FULLY PAID

    THEY DO NOT HAVE OIL
    YET THEY EARN MORE THAN OIL PRODUCER

    THEY DO NOT PRODUCE CIGARETTES
    YET THEY EARN MORE THAN THE PRODUCER
    1 PACK IN SINGAPORE IS $12- OR MORE COMPARE TO US JUST OF RM 5
    THAT IS RM 25 PER PACK

    THEY BUT CHEAP WATER FROM US YET
    THEIR OWN CITIZENS BUYS A PRECIOUS PRICE
    THEIR NEW WATER AS JUST A BARGAINING TOOL TO GET FROM US CHEAPER WATER
    I DON,T FIND IT A VALID GOOD REASONS FOR THEM TO
    HAVE THEIR NEW WATER
    POOR SINGAPOREAN THEY ARE GIVEN VERY CHEAP NATURAL WATER FROM US
    YET THEIR GOVT FEED THEM WITH RECYCLE WATER
    I HOPE THE NEXT 10 YRS THEIR NEW WATER WILL NOT GIVES HARM TO SINGAPOREANS
    BESIDES THE TECHNOLOGY OF PRODUCING NEW WATER IS SOLD TO MIDDLE EAST

    WATER IS A PRODUCT OF A NATIONS
    AS MUCH AS UNITED STATES WEAPONS IS A PRODUCT
    UNITED STATES WEAPONS IS ON HIGHLY DEMAND AS MUCH
    STUPID ARABS ARE BUYING A VERY HIGH PRICE FOR US WEAPONS NOW

    NONE SHOULD BE A FRIENDLY , GOOD NEIGHBOR PRICE
    UNLESS HUMANITARIAN GROUND IS CALLED
    ABOVE IT SHOULD BASE ON DEMAND & SUPPLY

    BUT IT IS SAD
    SINGAPORE NO WATER ,CAN PROCESS THE WATER & SOLD TO US
    AGAIN NOT JUST THAT THEY EVEN HAVE NEW WATER TREATMENT PLANT
    WE HAVE THE RESOURCES WE DID NOT HAVE OUR OWN PLANT TO PROCESS

    WHAT ARE WE MALAYSIANS
    THE TIDAK APA PEOPLE

    Assalamualaikum and Selamat Berpuasa Tun,

    I cannot but wonder could there be any side agreements that we don’t know about? The agreement seems totally one sided and benefits Singapore the most. I’m sure our legal experts would have checked the agreement thoroughly before agreeing to it. Could corruption be involved?

    On another matter, in Egypt, the coup leader have asked the Eygpt tion people to protest so as seen as a mandate for the army to crush the terrorist. Everyone knows this mean the army wants the people to protest so that the army can crush the Brotherhood. First and foremost, during Egypt first free election, it was the Brotherhood that won the most and form the majority. Therefore the Brotherhood represent the people. Now the army wants to crush the Brotherhood.

    I have long suspected it, and with this announcement, it confirms what I have suspected all along. The army coup was not for the Egyptian people. Instead, the Egyptian people are being used as a tool, as a justification for the army to take over the country. Now the army want to use the Egyptian people again to crush the Brotherhood. It worked well. Now the West are not sure how to react. I feel sorry for the Egyptians in Tahrir Square. They think they have been liberated, but in actually fact Egypt is now controlled by the army and they are nothing more than pawns.

    This has set a precedence. From now on, any army in the world that want to take over the government, they would need to make the people angry at the government of the day. The bigger the protest the better. So when the army takes over the government, they can always say its because of the people.

    Brilliant strategy I would say.

    For Alfred Willner,

    There are certain interesting historical aspects concerning the political will of America through the ages, from its founding in 1774 to 2013. It is the greatness and might which America had achieved through wars from the War of Independence to the Wars in the Muslim World of the 21st century and the nascent containment Policy on China.
    It pays for Herr Wilmer to have a look-see on the mysterious explosion of the American warship, USS Maine, in Havana Harbour, Cuba in 1899 or why the 4 strategic aircraft carriers of the United States Navy were 200 miles to the north of Honolulu, Hawaii when the Japanese Imperial Navy struck on 7th December 1941. And up to this point, the New Deal of Franklin Roosevelt was mired in inaction since 1933 and from 1941, the American economy plus the World’s took off right up to 2007/October 2008 – the Kondratieff Wave. Herr Wilmer would also note that most of the Americans before 7th December 1941 were isolationists and pro-German (Hitler).
    Another point worth noting is that the Americans had the capability of flying heavy bombers with take-offs and landings for many years. Through this research, the squadrons of drones which are now deployed around the World have shown their effectiveness.

    These are just some observations of certain mysterious historical events which just refused to go away.

    In the year 2013, there are still people who try their very best to convince us in the ulus that the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore is a winner for Malaysia. Apart from the mechanics of the calculations of how Malaysia benefitted and your convincing rebuttal to this nonsense, I would seek your permission to point out as usual that even though Singapore had benefitted from this absurd rock-bottom price, I am sorry to note that if Malaysia gives free water to Singapore for the next 50 years, Singapore will not benefit to the extent that her leadership foresaw would have had happened in October 2008. Singapore imploded due to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew’s 9 failed Policies for Singapore. The killer Policy was the 2 child Policy which screwed down population growth through deliberate Governmental measures to limit growth of a very small population of 2 Millions. A viable and dynamic State like the United States of America takes into its body politic those who sought freedom. In the case of Singapore, in 2013, their very own citizens claim it is authoritarian vide.www.tremeritus.com/2013/07/13/ng-kok-lim-rebuts-sg-embassy-singapore-is-authoritarian. Hence, any amount of free water Singapore utilises will make no DIFFERENCE TO ITS EVENTUAL DESTINY IN THE FUTURE. The die is cast. Singapore will definitely cannot be ahead of us in human and natural resources terms. As I said before, the Singapore leadership has the following 4 choices in the future :-
    1. Singapore chooses to be the 53rd State of the Union. We could fill up the Straits of Johor till it becomes a drain and separated by a chain-link fence between Malaysian and America. Every morning, we could say, ‘Selamat pagi, Amerika’ to the folks across the way.
    2. Singapore reverts to be a British Colony again, like Bermuca, Bahamas, Caymans, Virgin Islands etc.
    3. Or she may merge again with Malaysia. In this instance, an ancient forbids,’ A good horse does not return to old pastures.’
    4. Or she may retain status quo as of now with the aging brigades of Gurkha Guards, F-35, rusting tanks, submarines, AWACS, Apaches, spies, frigates, etc plus a full Cabinet of Ministers which are way above the requirement of a one-street town. Or is in preparation to rule a conquered Nation ?

    Man proposed. God disposed. Malaysia lost out in 1962. Does she lose out in 2062 ? We are already half-way there !

    1 US gallon = 3.78541178 liters
    1000 gallons =3.78541178 cubic meters
    in Singapore 1 cubic meters of water cost ≈ SGD $2.00
    the above cost is inclusive of gst, conservation tax as well as disposal fee for every drop purchase. therefore 1000 gallons would cost
    ≈ 3.78541178 x 2.00 = SGD $7.57082356

    raw water cost 3 sen = 1¼¢ = $0.0125
    profits = $7.57082356 -0.0125 – x = 7.55832356 – x
    where x is the total treatment and delivery cost.
    a dumb assumption cost of x at 50% of profit then
    nett for 1000 gallons = SGD$3.77916178
    If there are 1 million homes in Singapore which on average uses 10 cubic meters then (10/3.78541178 =2.64)
    3.78 x2.64 x 1 000 000 = SGD$9.9792 million per month of profits from the purchase of raw water at RM 79 200

    THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 9/11 INCIDENT – Planned Demolition vs Accidental Destruction.

    Your speech at a forum held in Kuala Lumpur on 19th November 2012, my comments thereto HERE and the subsequent posting of your LETTER TO ALFRED WILLNER on Nov 25th, 2012 here also. A copy is reproduced below for ease in reference

    HERE NOW: ALUMINUM, ITS POWERS AND EFFECTS

    Salam, dear Tun!

    Yesterday I was watching the FRENCH-GERMAN TV station ARTE on the subject of ALUMINUM, the dangerous methods used to produce it and the demolishing and destructive properties it develops and discloses in delusion.

    A Norwegian scientist by the name of Siemens exposed there that a Jumbo Jet among other elements is composed of 32 tons of ALUMINUM and that ALUMINUM, in delusion in 900 degrees Celsius as it occurs in a fire when petrol is burning and when additionally ALUMINUM is mixed with WATER as it did when it burst all the water pipes in the two towers of the Wold Trade Center in New York on 9/11, then it will become ALUMINUM OXIDE.

    ALUMINUM OXIDE if heated up to 900 degrees Celsius will have 700 )seven hundred) times the strength and power of say TNT or DYNAMITE.

    He kept on saying that videos showing melted elements pouring down the sides as the buildings came down were in actual fact mainly ALUMINUM with its mighty destructive power and that only this is the reason why these towers collapsed straight down as they did.

    By his argument these towers collapsing the way they did is thus not proof of any planned demolition – as in setting up dynamite to deliberately demolish a building- rather the characteristics of planned demolition appearing there were purely accidental, produced by the devastating effects of the joining powers of burning ALUMINUM mixing with WATER and thus becoming ALUMINUM OXIDE.

    It is of course everyones right to question the veracity of the official version of the 9/11 event but when doing so everyone must then also make sure that their arguments are well founded and are not largely speculative.

    I do folllow the reasoning of this Norwegian scientist; what he says is well founded and it makes sense.

    I agree that the Truth is important. But having said it must also be said, that it can not be construed that the incident of 9/11 resulted in Afghanistan and Iraq being invaded and that hundreds of thousands were killed because of it and that Muslims are being demonised and discriminated against because of this incident 9/11 as it would seem that your are arguing in your letter to me.

    Please forgive my late reaction now which is due to new findings I learned only yesterday

    The war in Afghanistan had started long before 9/11 – Russians had given up on it decades before that. Iraq was invaded on false pretenses namely that Saddam Hussein had possessed weapons of mass destruction which turned out not to be true. The Wold was fooled before the Assembly of the United Nations with a declaration made by General Collin Powell there. Both wars had no direct relation to 9/11.

    Also it can not be said that due to the way these two towers collapsed, namely straight down and thus insinuating that planned demolition was at work, is proof of evidence that terrorist were not at work there. This is an erroneous conclusion!

    Please note that I am deliberately avoiding to use the term Muslim Terrorists as this is an argument I dot not want to get into. It was proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the attacks of 9/11 were carried our by Arabs; what was not proved -or at least it was not exposed to the general public- was whether they were Muslims, Christians or Jews for that matter. Be this as it may – Terrorists they were!

    It can then also not be said, dear Tun, that “if f the Muslim terrorists are not responsible, the Muslims do not deserve to be condemned, humiliated and killed” for this equation implies that it’s alright to be a “Muslim Terrorist” – it is NOT alright to be a terrorist!

    Terrorists are terrorists be they Muslim, Christin, Jews or of any other religion!

    What can be said though Is that Muslims do not deserve to be condemned, humiliated and killed for whatever reason, for condemnation, humiliation and killing are not legitimate instruments to solve discrepancies of any kind.

    The truth is important, dear Tun, indeed it is, but the Truth must not be constructed. Unfortunately this is what we as Humans often do when we want to expose our arguments in the best possible light. To find out the Truth is a tedious and meticulous endeavor. Ad times new knowledge of things are brought the scene like here the effects of ALUMINUM for us to reconsider previous stands and positions.

    The two Tower of the World Trade Center were not deliberately demolished in an act of planned demolition by way of setting up TNT or DYNAMITE there for them to collapse; their collapse was the result of ALUMINUM heated up in burning air plane fuel mixing with WATER which made it become 700 times more powerful than TNT or DYNAMITE s it were.

    God be with you, dear Tun, keep animating your fellow countrymen with your blog here and may God also give you continued good health. I will be in Malaysia soon again now and would certainly like to meet you as we’d have plenty to discuss – also in terms of the automotive industry in your country.

    LETTER TO ALFRED WILLNER
    Nov25th
    2012 18 Comments Written by chedet
    Dear Alfred (Alfred.willner@euromotors.ltd.gi)

    1. Thank you for your comments on my speech given at a forum held in Kuala Lumpur on 19th November 2012 themed “9/11 Seeking the Truth.” Apart from myself three others spoke, each with his own reasons for doubting that the attack against the twin World Trade Towers of New York was the work of Arab terrorists. Their talk was illustrated with video clips of the attack and the subsequent collapse of not just the two towers but of a third tower next to them which was not hit by any aircraft or by the collapsing towers.

    2. One pointed out that upon being informed that the towers were hit by airplanes, Bush did nothing for almost 10 minutes. Rumsfeld who was in the Pentagon building was told that a commercial aircraft was headed for the Pentagon after the twin towers were hit. No commercial aircrafts or other aircrafts were supposed to fly towards the Pentagon. It was 50 miles from the building when Rumsfeld was told. But he did nothing. No fighter aircrafts were scrambled to stop the oncoming aircrafts. And the aircraft was said to crash into the Pentagon.

    3. Another speaker illustrated his talk with video clips showing how the towers collapsed straight down as characteristic of planned demolition. There were shots of the fire brigade personnel describing the collapse and gesturing with their hands that the building came down with loud boom, boom, boom, boom, boom ….. at each stage. Other witnesses described the collapse in the same way.

    4. An association of architects and engineers declared that the collapse was typical of a planned demolition. They pointed out that buildings do not collapse due to fire. The steel frames would not come down with the building unless they were destroyed by explosives, as happens with demolitions.

    5. The video also showed melted steel pouring down the sides as the buildings came down. This can only happen if a certain chemical which burn with very high temperatures, higher than the melting point of steel, ignites during the fire. Traces of this chemical was found at the site later on.

    6. But the most telling feature is the similar straight-down collapse of a third building next to the twin towers. This building was not hit by any aircraft or by the two towers crashing against it as they collapse.

    7. The collapse of this building also showed the features of a demolition. No other buildings close by were damaged in any way.

    8. Normally when a plane, especially a commercial plane crashes, the black box would be among the debris. No black boxes were found. Presumably they were melted by the intense heat.

    9. Yet a passport was found in the debris, revealing the name of the “terrorist.” Isn’t it strange that intense heat which could melt steel could not burn the paper of the passport. There was no report of other passports being found.

    10. All these things pointed out by the speakers indicate a very sophisticated operation.

    11. A few years back a group of Americans came to Malaysia bringing with them videos of the 9/11 attacks against the twin towers, the Pentagon and the crash of the fourth plane in Pennsylvania. One of them was the janitor who was declared a hero by the US Government for saving the lives of 200 people in the lower floors.

    12. He told the Government enquiry commission preparing a report on the 9/11 crash about the explosions as the building came down. His evidence, he said was not included in the report.

    13. A society of engineers made public their doubts that the collapse of the towers was due to the plane crash and fire. They believed that it was due to demolition.

    14. If you are interested enough you can access a whole lot of websites on “9/11 truth” and you will find that I am not the only one to question the veracity of the official version of 9/11.

    15. Please keep an open mind when you read these websites. Please also remember that the truth is important because this incident resulted in Afghanistan and Iraq being invaded, hundreds of thousands being killed, the Muslims being demonised and discriminated against. Surely if the Muslim terrorists are not responsible, the Muslims do not deserve to be condemned, humiliated and killed.
