TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

Future of Democracy in Asia 468

 

Thank you very much for this opportunity to speak to the audience here. Malaysia has gone through a very furious transition. I was the leader for 22 years of the government party which ruled Malaysia for 61 years.

Now I am now leading the opposition and the opposition has now become the government. So I am not changing my stand first I say that I still see have the same old ideas about the authoritarian rule which I might been accused of being dictator during my time. But I beg to differ I was not a dictator but that doesn’t make anybody change their minds. Whenever they mention my name they always described me as a dictator and today a dictator is going to talk about democracy. But I don’t know whether I’m qualified or not. But I will try.

In the first place of course democracy is not an Asian invention it came from the west. Again I suppose from Greece but now the whole world has been told that you have to become democratic else has seen rapid changes taking place in many places.

And as a result of trying to be democratic they have met worst fate then when they were under authoritarian rule. So does that mean that authoritarian rule is best. Well of course we deny that because we think that the only system of government that should be practised by all countries must be the democratic system. But democracy is not something easy to handle. The basic rules of course is that the majority of the people have a right to choose a government to govern their country. But even in a democracy there
can be autocrat to rule rather tightly as I have been accused of. But if you want to make government work you have to have certain disciplines.

Asian minds are not accustomed to the idea that country can be ruled by the people. We have always had monarchs with absolute power and we have survived in a way of course. There were a lot of criticism again the monarchies rule they tend to be rather cruel to their own people in order to sustain themselves.

But now Asian are told that they should have democracy. And democracy mean not having any monarch or any dictator. It is people who will choose their leaders would lead the country. The assumption of course is that the majority of the people must know what is good for themselves.

Unfortunately they are distracted by other things like money for example. If they’re given money some of them would vote for whoever gives money whether he is a democrat or he is an authoritarian ruler. So sometimes or rather quite often it happens that democratically elected ruler can behave like a dictator and that’s what happened to Malaysia since 2013 when the Prime Minister who has been ousted took over. He introduced into democracy a new slogan and that slogan is called Cash is King.

In other words he’s saying that it is legitimate and proper to bribe in order to do to get anything done. But prime ministers are not paid very well. I think if you are in the public sector doing business you’re better paid. But for Prime Minister who is running whole country the pay is very very low. So if you want to bribe and you don’t have money he had to think of some ways to get money. And the previous Prime Minister decided that he would steal the money because he hasn’t got enough money to give bribes which will change the minds of people.

That show that even if we elect a ruler doesn’t mean that he will behave himself. There are mechanism for removing ruler who is not fair who is cruel and all that but sometimes the whole system can be can be converted to the dictators ideas and they will carry out his instruction because they know that they will be very well paid for that. So even in a democracy there can be dictators. And we find that when working with the democratic government too many people have got ideas which they think should be carried out out by the government and because they had different ideas from the government we have opposition parties.

Opposition parties normally can only criticise the government but seldom they can overthrow the government or bring government down. Unless of course it is a two party system.But two party is not very democratic. It means some people will have to forget their own ideas their own ideals in order to be a part of the other party the opposition. Only if there is a united opposition can democracy, can there be election to form the government.But it is not easy to have just two parties because many people would believe that they they are the right people to form the government.

And so when you see the regime change taking place in the Arab countries they, every one of those people who campaign, who demonstrated in order to overthrow the authoritarian government every one of them felt that they were the ones who should be running the government. But they are not united they come from various parties and the only reason why they think the government should be brought down is because they think they would be able to rule after the government is overthrown. But there are so many people who wants to be the government and of course immediately after the overthrow of authoritarian ruler there be will quarrel among the people who overthrew him.

Because you belong to different parties with different ideas. The end result may be Civil War at least tension and instability in the country. And they see in some countries they lost the ability to run the country. They become Failed Nations because they kept on quarrelling quarrelling with each other and not getting any benefit at all from democracy.

So we cant claim democracy as if one size shoes which fix all because each country each people have their own cultures and some of their cultures are so strong that it is difficult for them to change from having a dictator of an absolute monarch and replacing him with someone you elect merely by making a tick on the piece of paper. This is not common with them and therefore this idea can not be easily practise in many many countries in Asia and the Middle East. So we need to accept that democracy is not a perfect system it has his flaws but to make it work the mindset and the value system of the people must be capable of accepting rule by a person who is elected every 5 years. Sometimes of course it doesn’t last 5 years or something may go on to rule the country for 5 terms.

But all these are still seen quite democratic but some will fail because of the quarrells that take place all the time with the people snapping at the government and the government spending time and money in order to govern the country. He will not be able to govern in the country because he has to face a lot of disruptions coming from the very people who elected him.

So in Asia today we find not too many democracies. India is supposed to be the biggest democracy and but the others are quite totalitarian such as kingdom and countries of central Asia. In the east of course although leaders may be elected the ability to rule is not so good because of the constant sniping at the ruler whoever he may be. So the future of democracy in in Asia I think well will be something that will will not be achieve overnight as happens with some of the Middle Eastern countries. They change over night and today we see more problems than it was before they had democracy. You see civil war you see a lot of fighting and you’ll see a lot of disruption of the environment and they are unable to rule well or to get others to come and invest in their countries.

So I hope that people will understand that it takes time for people to become democratic. The value system must be suitable for democracy before democracy it self can be used as a method of running a country.

Thank you very much.

    For a good friend, TWIN PEAKS. Your description of your happy days as a student at Perse drew out volumes of nostalgia from the deep recesses of my brain. Those were your care-free and happy days without care.

    I suggest you write your reminiscences in both Cambridge and London for the posterity to cherish. No matter how short or long this volume will be. I have already written 2 works and have 4 more ready for publishing at the appropriate time. I strongly believe that all Malaysians with a sense of literacy should put their experiences or views in print which together will create a better beloved Malaysia like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Daim and their works.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Yes, I remember Heffer’s bookstore. At weekends, when we were the only ones not on exeat (all the English kids had gone home), I used to cycle into town with my Jewish housemate to read as many science fiction novels as we could at WHSmith before rushing back for supper roll call. We were late for this once and were grounded the next weekend by housemaster. It was not all pleasant staying away from my family thousands of miles away growing up in my early teens. Homesick was an understatement. I try to forget the fagging (doing chores for senior boarders) and at school although we hated Latin and Greek, they were compulsory for all students until the Fifth Form. But we loved games times most as always (rugby and cricket). So overall it wasn’t really torturous as a scene out of Oliver Twist.

    My humble apologies. I inadvertently left out a few words in my previous comment. It should be…

    …..’ No highly paid Israeli in your boudoir at the Rakyat’s expense who promptly vanished back to Israel when the BN Government was ousted…..’

    Acheh !

    For TWIN PEAKS. From the very beginning of your existence on this distinguished Blog, I sensed we have something in common.

    It is good to hear that you know Cambridge well and attended the Perse School and not The Leys, along Hills Road which was founded by a graduate of Caius & Gonville College. I would have advised you to read Archaeology & Anthropology to get a place.- A subject which had only 5 lectures a week with you spending time with your companion drinking tea at Granchester.

    I attended the college with a huge crest above its ancient oak gates which was surrounded by walls like the former Pudu Jail at the end of St Andrews Street if you my recall. Dato Seri Sharil Riza is my Alumnus. I was there for 6 years. I presume you bought your books at Heffer’s Petty Cury just round the corner.

    It is a small World, TWIN PEAKS. My younger daughter is SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies, London University) Alumnus.

    My grand-daughter wants to be a Psychologist in her early teens. This shows how small the Modern World is these days, TWIN PEAKS.

    Significant headlines are now appearing fast and furious in the media from all directions every day. Here are some, thus

    1. ‘ SINGAPORE MONETARY EASING BETS RISE. GLOOMY EXPORT DATA SHOW NON-OIL DOMESTIC EXPORTS DECLINED THE MOST IN OVER THREE YEARS. ‘

    2. ‘ EXPORTS TO CHINA, TAIWAN, JAPAN WEAKENING ‘

    3. ‘ ECONOMISTS THINK EASING IS BOJ’s NEXT ACTION – SURVEY.’

    4. ‘ FORGET ABOUT POLITICS, TOUGH TIMES ARE HERE – JOMO. EXTERNAL SITUATION DETERIORATING ALMOST ON DAILY BASIS. ‘

    5. ‘ EXPERT: ASEAN SHOULD AVOID TAKING SIDES IN US-CHINA TRADE WAR.’

    To keep this short and sweet, the headlines are self-explanatory as the cold headwinds rise from human conflict in the World outside our borders.

    Fortunately, the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great is in place after the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs since 9 May 2018. Reports of how the BN Leadership treated huge sums of money from testimonies in the Court are both shocking and brutal.

    Our beloved Malaysia should now focus on enhancing our attractiveness for Tourism, halal food exports, tertiary education for overseas students etc.

    High cost Singapore is now wallowing in a rising storm in a multi-lateral World with no human and natural resources contrary to one media report which claimed otherwise.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Your CONSISTENCY in your Policies is a good watchword in present day Malaysian Politics. In you we TRUST. No highly paid Israeli in your boudoir ! Keep smiling.

    I agree with Tun’s choice of both Oxford and Cambridge Universities for key speeches on Malaysia. Everyone in the world acknowledge these elite universities, even in America, hence speeches made here readily grab global attention.
    I too lived for 5 years in Cambridge, not at the university though, but a boys boarding school called the Perse, not far from the Leys (where Sultan Nazrin went to, decades earlier). Our school had its entire teaching staff from Cambridge University, and all with at least Masters degrees in their subjects. Just to add the aura of being in a university town, all my teachers wore black gowns over their blazers. And we all wore traditional blazers and black leather shoes, and everyone was called by his surname. Public schools are really in a world of their own, oblivious to the even the local residents just outside our school gate!
    But I wished I had gone to Gonville and Cauis college, but instead I went to SOAS, London University, which had a very non-Western and leftist outlook about the place.. very cool place!
    Anyway, that’s just my own personal experience of Cambridge.

  7. mubarakchan Jun 18,2019 6:46 AM

    Tun

    How many Malaysians are aware or realise the significance of CONSISTENCY in the views of a politician especially of the Malaysian kind ?

    Kudos to you for both your important and significant speeches at Oxford first and now at Cambridge later. The homes of CULTURE and NOW AGRICULTURE ! No other Asian politician had done this unique sequence of speeches to these Oxbridge debating unions.

    There were reports that you did not bring up any new subject but your views were similar to that of the one at Oxford.

    I dare say this is excellent in the CONSISTENCY OF YOUR IDEAS AND VIEWS OF THE WORLD like the plight of the Palestinians vis-a-vis the Israelis, a tragedy which the Western World deemed fit to ignore or avoid revealing the huge injustice so meted out by the Western Powers since the end of World War 1. !

    It is good you kept on reminding the Leaders of the World about their CONSCIENCE and RESPONSIBILITY to a down-trodden people, the Palestinians. The Palestinians are the MILLSTONE the World has to carry around its neck as long as this problem is not resolved with justice and fairness.

    It was good also to note that your speech gave reasons for the Policies which you have implemented at home in the past especially your important LOOK EAST POLICY which still holds water to this day.

    The importance of the East is as important as the Rising Sun every day especially at this juncture of our beloved Malaysia’s development and progress. We need all the help and assistance from all friendly and sincere quarters. We need friends from all corners of the Globe. Your Policies bolster this as the headwinds rise and slow down our progress.

    TO THIS VERY DAY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN DEVIOUS AND CROOKED IN ALL YOUR DEALINGS. It was very NORMAL.

    Your very presence at both Oxford and Cambridge underlines the importance these two ancient centres of British learning may play an important part in our beloved Malaysia’s dynamic and determination to be ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT 4 SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD SINCE 9 MAY 2018 BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    It is very important that our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat have your WISE, BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP in the years to come one way or another ! Besides. the Rakyat will be seeing you around in our beloved country anyway for many years to come !

    THE PROPER LEADERSHIP OF ANY COUNTRY IS PARAMOUNT TO ITS GOOD NAME. PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS WHICH OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAD FROM 1957 TO 2003 BEFORE THE DARK AGE 2004-2018 OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMNET AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs OVERWHELMED THE RAKYAT AND STRIPPED ALL OF THEIR WEALTH !

    I observe now there are three candidates who are fit to be called the New Generation of Elite (the 4th) now in your Team eg. Dato Azmin, Dato Sharil, and SADDIQ. It is good we have 3 and not just ONE after 3 generations of self-destruction by the Malay elites.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. The Constitution is firm on the fact that without Malay elites, the non-Malay elites cannot move unilaterally. In you we TRUST. Keep smiling ! Welcome HOME !

    It is good to learn that your working mission to Britain has been well-received both at home and abroad. As always, the headlines are both exciting and ominous on all fronts whilst you are away. As usual, I just ignore mischievous and frivolous reports on the sexual happenings of a political kind which wastes too much time and money in our environment.

    The significant headlines as reported, thus ..

    1. ” SINGAPORE EXPORTS DOWN 15.9% IN MAY AS CHINA SHIPMENTS SLIP.” Singapore now trades in a multi-polar trading World since the end of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    2. ” HONG KONG DEMONSTRATORS DEFY AUTHORITIES ”

    A Special Administrative Region of China which exists in a twilight zone with no CONSTITUTION compounded by TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT !

    3. ” FRESH PROTESTS CHOKE HK ”

    4. ” MALAYSIA ASPIRES TO BE E & E HUB DESPITE US-CHINA TECH WAR.”

    5. ” DR M ADVISED ALL MALAYSIANS TO RETURN HOME TO RE-BUILD THE NATION. ”

    These headlines are self-explanatory.

    Here is a true story. During the Dark Age of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs, a brilliant Muslim Indian LSE graduate returned home. He worked for one Government hi-tech Agency. His Boss requested him to prepare the Budget for the following year. He worked this out to be RM 5 Million. His Boss instructed him to increase it to RM 10 Million. The young man was upset and consulted his father who advised him to do as he was told. After submitting the fake Budget, the brilliant young LSE graduate returned to London.

    And soon the international trade headwinds may be heading our way. Tourism, tertiary education for overseas students and the export of halal food products would be one of the bright areas of business
    endeavour.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. In you we TRUST. Keep smiling. The whole World will smile with you !

    These days unexpected happenings concerning the affairs of Nations do appear with suddenness !

    I wonder how many Malaysians who always believe in the myth that the grass is always greener on the other side, have seen this over the weekend on the failure of Meritocracy in squeaky clean Singapore, thus :-

    ” SINGAPORE ABOLISHES SCHOOL EXAM RANKINGS. SAYS LEARNING IS NOT COMPETITIVE. ‘ It continues……

    ‘The Ministry of Education said the change is to allow each student to press on his or her learning programs and discourage them from being overly concerned about comparisons – a move, the Minister hopes will show students that learning is not about competition.’

    This new Policy which also gave details on how it is going to be implemented beginning with the Primary and Secondary classes must have been seriously reviewed and considered since 2014 when 2 Ministers announced that in future applications for jobs and promotions would not only be based on academic qualifications alone but also on other talents.

    These were the very first Official announcements on the Failure of Meritocracy in Singapore in 2014.

    Meritocracy is a word much loved by Lee Kuan Yew who thought highly of his academic achievements at Cambridge immediately after the Second World War. He joined LSE first but sweet talked the Senior Tutor of the lowest ranked non-college, Fitzwilliam House who permitted him to enter Cambridge by the back-door being over-aged at 23, with no Latin or Greek qualifications or passed the requisite Open Examination. His examinations result in competition with a handful of war weary veterans was legend. But he failed to declare that he was last at the important professional Bar Finals, London in which his wife ranked 3rd out of 200. Later, my wife ranked 7th out of 700 in the 1950s.

    Mentally armed with such excellent academic results Lee Kuan Yew developed a strong belief in eugenics concerning the Singaporean population which even Hitler dared not attempt in the Third Reich.

    Lee Kuan Yew imposed a harsh and brutal 2 Child Family Policy on the population in 1972 which ended up in shambles in the 1980s.

    Reports of mental illness, abortions, sterilizations, suicides, religious fray, emigration, enforcements by Income Tax, etc. ruled the day. What that generation of Singaporeans learnt was to be kiasu and tried to avoid marriage for fear that a quickie Singaporean divorce would force them to part with 50% of their wealth to their ex-spouses !

    The weakness with the present 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 in Singapore today ( vide- Singapore White Paper on Population 2011 ) is the result of Lee Kuan Yew self-beliefs who went to the wrong College at Cambridge. He later found out the Christ’s College was the best and he made appropriate arrangements to reserve a place for a Singaporean Scholar to be parachuted in at the expense of the Malaysians. If he had been a Christ’s man himself, he would have discovered that Christ’s College’s Charles Darwin wrote a significant and celebrated treatise in 1850, ‘ The Survival of the Species ‘ on the natural selection of the species of animal kind and not eugenics.

    Lee Kuan Yew’s life long narcissistic obsession with his self-acclaimed academic prowess at Cambridge brought his downfall in at least 47 of his Public Policies. He never grew up because he never left his books behind at Cambridge and began afresh as a politician. From this milieu of his thoughts, the decades old Policy of Meritocracy in Singapore based on Oxbridge and the Ivy League began and rested with him.

    CAMBRIDGE NEVER TAUGHT HIM HOW TO THINK ! What our beloved Tun called ‘MIND-SET’ !

    Since the 1980s I had already heard about the failures of the performance of the returned Presidential or State Scholars in their public duties and responsibilities. Most of them returned to Singapore and could not get down to the brass tacks like dirtying their hands or stand in the hot tropical sun to serve the general public. Not only that, these overseas graduates grumbled at their boring jobs.

    In 2010 or hereabouts, a naked lady Cantab. graduate scholar with her equally naked Caucasian boy friend romped around the Holland Village, Singapore one hot Saturday night. When she was asked ‘Why ?’ she replied that her job was boring. The Singapore Government was dumbfounded and did nothing.

    Since then, a series of about 10 sexual misdemeanours involving Government Scholars have been brought to the Public notice.

    Our beloved Malaysia can learn much from Mother India and Singapore. The latter’s draconian Policy in Education is to be avoided which gave rise to mental illness, delinquency, suicides, etc – an attrition rate of the young and hapless is to be AVOIDED.

    Here is a true life example.

    My friend was so happy when his daughter obtained a Singaporean ASEAN Scholarship. His daughter reported that she was closely monitored in her studies. Eventually, she could not obtain a place in a Singaporean tertiary institution and was fortunate to join the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur. She is now happily employed by a Kuala Lumpur bank.

    From my own experience, I am of the opinion that nowadays with the fast expanding Net, a young person needs only a Form 6 certificate at best. Thereafter, he or she can be in business or other non-professional activities. The non-professional students in universities spend most of their time socialising. And the universities are focussed on educating the young and not to fail them unlike the days of 60-70 years ago when places were scarce and universities were small and hard to come by.

    The World seldom fails to surprise. A the Singaporean Policy to discard MERITOCRACY AS LEE KUAN YEW KNEW IT SHOULD BE A SURPRISE to the ignorant.

    EDUCATION IS FOR ALL, NOT JUST A FEW ! Don’t fail them !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Welcome home to you, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah and the Entourage.

  10. mubarakchan Jun 15,2019 3:22 PM

    Tun

    Whilst you and your entourage are busily attending different functions in London, the news concerning the Region and our beloved Malaysia kept on flowing to highlight the dynamism and productive activities of South East Asia where its location and peoples assume a more important status day by day due to the Sino-American Trade Wars.

    All investors in the Region would be doing their sums on the benefits or the disadvantages of the impact of such a Sino-American Trade War which arose most unexpectedly due to the fact that after the Cold War 1948-1989, Uncle Sam came up with his hegemonic spiel, ‘Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights.’ But with the ascension of President Trump and his Policies, the trading countries of the Free World which supported America are now in disarray. They do not know how this Trade War is going to end.

    Many thinking people hope that there will be transfers of manufacturing facilities out of China to South East Asia. Until the picture of this Trade War crystallises, all bets are off. And until then, all countries will suffer and become losers.

    Singapore is the sole loser arising from the end of the Cold War 1948-1989 after which her QUESTIONALBE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 were grabbed from her by the BRICS, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

    With the loss of such huge profits from the Cold War Trades 1948-1989, the void could not be filled especially with such a sudden loss. The Cold War 1948-1989 trades and profits pushed Singapore from a backwater Third World port to the First World. So huge were the profits.

    For Singapore, this sudden loss of REVENUE could not be replaced even by the 4 INITIATIVES OF LEE KUAN YEW CREATION AS A LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS being Temasek, FTs imports, 2 casinos, the TPPA/CPTPP – the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer which was signed by the BN Prime Minister but not yet ratified by the Dewan Rakyat.

    By 2019, all failed. And her GDP did not breach 3% exclusive of inflation from 2002 to 2019 – 17 years even with patience and hard-work.

    Now all that Singapore has left is a CLEAN GOVERNMENT AND EFFICIENT CIVIL SERVICE WITHOUT LEE KUAN YEW AND THE ARDUOUS TASK OF COMPETING IN A MULIT-POLAR POST-COLD WAR WORLD INSTEAD OF THE MONOPOLISTIC UNIPOLAR WORLD OF TRADES IN QUESTIONABLE AND UNMENTIONALBE GOODS AS BLESSED BY UNCLE SAM DURING THE COLD WAR 1948-1989. That four-legged animal of riches had gone forever.

    LEE KUAN YEW MISSED THE BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY OF HIS LIFE WHEN HE DID NOT INVEST IN GOLD WHEN IT WAS ABOUT US$ 300 PER OUNCE between 1970s – 2000. If he did between 1948-1989 before and after Uncle Sam took the gold out of the US Dollar in 1972, he would have achieved the following :-

    1. Malaysia would have been caught between a rock and a hard place since the 1990s. Singapore dominates outright with PHYSICAL GOLD instead of RELYING ON CORRUPT MALAYSIAN DIGITS TO DO THE JOB FOR SINGAPORE.

    The latter Policy is now seen to achieve NOTHING but a few Rocks, steel rails, KTM lands, bits and pieces of no substantial value here and dare.

    All of these KIASU items amounted to NOTHING compared to the FACT THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BECAME ONE OF 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA SINCE 9 MAY 2018 ! Where are you Singapore with a choke point of 1 KM whilst Malaysia’s stretches from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea for 2,000 KM ?

    2. Singapore recognised as a financial POWER with 4,000 tons of GOLD which would have forced the United States and the West to defend it at all costs.

    3, Singapore owns a NATURAL COMMODITY OF INFINITESIMAL IMPORTANCE to justify a strong military and POLITICAL STANDING – no need to BS anymore.

    4. Singapore gains a brand NEW GOLD INDUSTRY involved in all manner of gold business activities and employment.

    5. NOW SINGAPORE HAS NOTHING without LEE KUAN YEW.

    In 30 years, from 1989 to 2019, Uncle Sam has discovered that the whole World’s parasites were sucking on her Wealth. Now, America wants to rectify what she sees as unjust trading arrangements made by her past Presidents.

    Our beloved Malaysia is right on top of the list of countries which are most suitable for manufacturing of any kind with her developed infrastructures, skilled workers and low cost of living in a hospitable and safe environment as maintained by the New and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    It is on this score that the New and Incorruptible Government focus on welcoming both the FCIs and the foreign Tourists without forgetting its socio-economic duties and responsibilities to the Rakyat on the aged, the neglected young, addicts, horticulture, health and education issues.

    All else like little pin pricks on sex, proper appointments, etc are ABSOLUTELY IRRELEVANT in terms of Sovereignty, National Interest and Good Governance at the present time – such negativities should be ignored as childish. Round pegs for round holes. Square pegs for square holes.

    The flagrant use of the social media should be ignored as long as the New and Incorruptible Government keeps to its Policies which we the Rakyat knew so well from 1957-2003 before the whole of our beloved Malaysia was overwhelmed by the Darkness of the Dark Age 2004-2018 brought upon us the innocent Rakyat by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs.

    Now the whole beloved Malaysia is back in the sunshine with blue skies and white cumulus clouds AND ON THE RIGHT TRACK TOWARDS BENEFITS FOR ALL underlined by the significant headlines which appeared clearly in recent days, thus

    1. ” SGX 41 LONG SUSPENDED COMPANIES. HIGHEST IN 3 YEARS. STUCK IN TRADING PURGATORY AND STRUGGLING TO CLEAN UP THEIR ACT. ” Singapore Business Times.

    2. ” WELCOME 2019. RETRENCHMENT UP 28 PERCENT AT 3,230 COMPARED WITH 2,510 IN PREVIOUS QUARTER. ” Singapore Business Times.

    My ex-banker relative is now a GRAB taxi-driver !

    3. ” FDI SURGED 73.4 PERCENT IN 1ST QUARTER 2019 FROM A YEAR AGO. ”
    Quote FM Malaysia.

    All these headlines are self-explanatory.

    Our beloved Malaysia must be on guard all the time as regards the political and socio-economic well-being of all the Rakyat because the World has become more complicated with the Net and more clever people to cause trouble and damage at lower costs.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you we TRUST. Keep smiling !

    In this Sino-US Trade War, countries in South East Asia can gain only if they are organised and banded togehrt to gain from the expected largesse of FDIs to come from China, Japan and South Korea.

    “This sad and tragic episode now happening in Hong Kong has a precedent in the proposed MALAYAN UNION OF 1945 when the British Labour Government in Whitehall, London rode roughshod over the Royal Sultans and the Malays WITHOUT CONSIDERING THEIR POLITICAL AND OTHER RIGHTS.

    It was alleged the British Residents or the Advisers to the Sultans alerted their peers to this anomaly. The Malays demonstrated in force. The British backed down and came up with a revised version known as THE FEDERATION OF MALAYA AGREEMENT 1951.

    See how the Royal Sultans and the Malays got it right and the Hong Kongers got it very wrong. IT WAS JUST A QUESION OF THE RIGHT TIMING.”

    Ditto.

    I would just add that, speaking as a Sabahan, it is very important for Everyone, and not just those in government, to have a say in the ongoing constitutional amendment bill regarding the Borneo states’ relation with the federation. And it is VERY important that No One is belittled in discussing such a life-changing bill as this, one that will affect generations of Sabahans, Sarawakians and Malayans, still to come. No matter how little the voice, it must be heard and I would prefer a British style referendum of Brexit, if the difference in public opinions is too pronounced.
    Let the ordinary Borneo people have the final say in a clean and internationally monitored referendum. And we must accept whatever the outcome, without hesitation. That’s my stand as a democrat. Politicians duty after that is to simply implement the people’s decision in the most cost-effective way possible.
    To do any other way is to invite long-term suspicions and resentments and bring more trouble to the entire nation in future.

    Let the massive demonstrations which have recently taken place in Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China be an eye-opener to those who do not understand Malaysia’s very own Constitution.

    The historical and political background to this Hong Kong Conundrum began in 1887 when the British occupied Hong Kong Island and the New Territories by the use of force from the Ching Dynasty of China. A 100 year lease was forced on the Chinese.

    By 1982, Margaret Thatcher, then the British Prime Minister made overtures to the Chinese Central Government to make arrangements to return the British occupied territories by 1997. This whole arrangement was completed without much fuss in the eyes and knowledge of the Hong Kongers and the World. Up to the handover, I did not recall any dissatisfaction was expressed by anyone with the ONE COUNTRY TWO SYSTEMS AGREEMENT.

    Now a minority of Hong Kongers are opposed to any Legislation of Laws which they do not like eg. The Repatriation to China Bill in a Hong Kong which has already been part and parcel of the People’s Republic of China since 1997. Much water has flowed under the bridge since 1997.

    Those opponents against this Bill argue that the danger lies in the fact that the two LEGAL SYSTEMS, of Hong Kong and China are different. Not only that, the Bill will turn Hong Kong like any part of China because if implemented any Hong Konger maybe repatriated back to China legally and openly and will not face a fair trial.

    My opinion is that in 1982, the Hong Kong people were so timid and quiet when the Arrangements to return to China were first mooted by the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ? They just kept to themselves and minded their own businesses.

    WHAT OR WHO AROUSE THEM ON AND ON IN 2019 ?

    IF AT ALL, 1982 WAS THE POINT WHEN THE HONG KONGERS SHOULD HAVE TURNED OUT IN FORCE TO DEMAND THEIR RIGHTS WERE PROTECTED UNDER THE ONE COUNTRY TWO SYSTEMS AGREEMENT and guaranteed by both China and Britain as well. But the Hong Kongers did nothing of any kind except maybe one or two harbingers of the piece like Martin Lee, a lawyer.

    ON THIS SCORE, THE HONG KONGERS DID NOT MAKE A SQUEAK.

    Hong Kong a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China is now a part of China LEGALLY IN ALL ASPECTS, thousands of the Hong Kongers came out to demonstrate against a Bill or something which is very much a part and parcel of the NORMAL FUNCTIONS OF ANY STATE IN THE WORLD.

    I do not expect the Government of the People’s Republic of China to give way at all on this Repatriation Bill as the Law prevails.

    WITH THIS HONG KONGERS FAUX PAS, MANY DEMONSTRATORS WILL BE INJURED CRITICALLY OR OTHERWISE IF THERE ARE MORE DEMOSNSTRATIONS TO COME.

    And the blame for these unnecessary injuries and the bad timing of these demonstrations REST FULLY WITH THE LEADERS AND THOSE BEHIND THEM FOR NOT DOING THE SAME IN 1982 AND NOT 2019. With the latter, THE LAW PREVAILS !

    This sad and tragic episode now happening in Hong Kong has a precedent in the proposed MALAYAN UNION OF 1945 when the British Labour Government in Whitehall, London rode roughshod over the Royal Sultans and the Malays WITHOUT CONSIDERING THEIR POLITICAL AND OTHER RIGHTS.

    It was alleged the British Residents or the Advisers to the Sultans alerted their peers to this anomaly. The Malays demonstrated in force. The British backed down and came up with a revised version known as THE FEDERATION OF MALAYA AGREEMENT 1951.

    See how the Royal Sultans and the Malays got it right and the Hong Kongers got it very wrong. IT WAS JUST A QUESION OF THE RIGHT TIMING.

    At the end of the day, THE MALAYSIAN CONSTITUTION PREVAILS in all aspects of the political and socio-economic Life of our beloved Malaysia.

    It is heartening to read in the media of your forthcoming 3 day working visit to the United Kingdom. Our beloved Malaysia has strong ties with the United Kingdom until the Dark Ages of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs.

    With the coming of Brexit, Malaysia’s ties with the United Kingdom can only grow stronger.

    In 1972, I was aghast that the United Kingdom was intent to be part of the EU, a continent where England had fought many wars through the centuries and won most of them. As we can see now, that the EU Membership was not a bed of roses for the United Kingdom. Even a divorce will cost them Pounds Sterling 39 Billion.

    However, there are many beneficial bonds between the United Kingdom and our beloved Malaysia being they are quite advanced in hi-technology the bulk of which is sited in the Cambridge area which is considered the Silicon Valley of Britain.

    Your important advisers Tun Daim Zainuddin (Churchill College) and Dato Seri Shahril Ridza Ridzuan (Christ’s College) are both from the University of Cambridge. Maybe Dato Seri Sharil can arrange a visit to an important hi-tech facility for you and your entourage in Cambridge.

    It is a delight to read that you will be giving a talk on ‘Democracy in Asia’ It is only fitting and appropriate that this significant and important speech should come from the most important political practitioner of his generation in the Region and the World.

    You may chance upon meeting two distinguished Malaysian academicians at the Cambridge University, Professor Emeritus Dr Charley Loke of King’s College and Professor of Geriatrics Dr Khaw. She is the daughter of a Malaysian Cabinet Minister Tan Sri Khaw Kai Boh in the Cabinets of the Tunku and Tun Abdul Razak. There is one more Malay medical specialist whose name I could not remember off–hand who did some research work in one of the medical laboratories.

    However it is good you visit Britain at least twice a year with a special emphasis on places of higher learning and the hi-tech like Oxford and Cambridge.

    Bon Voyage to you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah and the entourage.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling.

    Many people are intrigued by sex of the political kind whether it is between man and man or man and woman does not matter. To us, it is just a matter of human sexual activity which has a recorded history as long as there was Adam and Eve. And from here, many devious and abnormal forms of human sexual activities emerged – most of which are illegal.

    But now we are not interested in any kind of sexual behaviour or activity of Humankind.

    Our concern is focussed on ‘FAKE WEAPONIZATION OF POLITICAL VIDEOS’ – Courtesy of CNN – to destroy the honourable character of a political opponent. Apparently it is cheap and easy to produce such videos and experts are already experimenting with software to detect and call out such fake videos according to CNN.

    Tun, your call on the use of fake videos yesterday was succinct and to the point. Who cares about fake videos ?

    MY OPINION IS TO BAN ALL FAKE VIDEOS, SEXUAL OR OTHERWISE FROM OUR MALAYSIAN POLITICAL ARENA ONCE AND FOR ALL.

    Such fake videos should be thrown into the dust-bin without any consideration.

    This is the best method of stopping a dastardly practice which wastes a lot of everyone’s time, the officials or otherwise. Time and money should be well-spent on the aged, the neglected young, addicts, horticulture health and education and not on the grinning morons in the fake videos.

    The job of a Malaysian Politician is to care for the welfare of the Rakyat concerning all aspects of their well-being. In return, there is no reason to doubt that a Malaysian Politician will deliver less whatever he or she did in private and within the 4 walls. IT IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS !

    AS DENG XIAO PENG SAID, ‘ IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER A CAT IS BLACK OR WHITE AS LONG AS IT CATCHES MICE.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem AS LONG AS WE BAN ALL VIDEOS CONCERNING SEX FROM OUR MALAYSIAN POLITICAL ARENA TO REMOVE THE POLITICAL WEAPONIZATION OF FAKE VIDEOS. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling.

    By the way, my sincere apology to all ambassadors of Latin American countries and the Philippines, for my sometime very frank views.

  16. twinpeaks Jun 12,2019 7:30 PM

    Living in a country like Brazil or Argentina, it is Who you know that matters more than What you know. They were discovered by Portuguese and Spanish explorers who chased gold and silver south of the Americas and practically transplanted a new Spain and Portugal with all the class systems found back home in Europe. There is absolutely no incentive to work hard because it won’t get you anywhere. Just like the Philippines today.
    Whereas the late-comers British and French were left with the crumbs north of the Americas. There was nothing there so the British high society never took root there. The only way to survive was through sheer hard work and free enterprise. But when they began to prosper, England took notice and wanted to reclaim the colonies back, and of course we all know what happened after that. Anyway, the crumbs north of the Americas is now called the USA and Canada, the two most powerful economies in the Western hemisphere, if not the whole world too.

    How many Malaysians are aware that the South American countries of today were extremely rich before post World War 2 ?

    At the turn of the 20th Century, a town Manaus situated about 1,000 km from the mouth of the Amazon River was so rich that the town could build a glittering European style opera house which imported European opera artistes for its performances. This was at the height of the natural rubber boom in the early 20th Century.

    And even after World War 2 in the 1960s, Brazil prposed to build its new capital city of Brasilia. Since then, there were one corrupt Government Regime one after another with the 1% ruling clique dominating the Brazilian Society, year after year, decade after decade with no end in sight of the alleviation of its poor right at the bottom of the heap. The Brazilian poor classes only overt expression was football !

    Finally, Brazil is one of the richest country in South America if not the World with its huge land mass and natural resources. But its economy was forever sick and afflicted with inflation and corruption.

    Then there is Argentina which was ranked No 7 in the Pre-World War 2 because she produced beef and wheat for Europe and the rest of the World. Then Argentina had something like 500 tons of gold in her coffers. After World War 2, Peron and his wife Evita became Argentina’s rulers because of their Populist Policies and the non-deliverance of her decadent and corrupt Governments of their predecessors. In no time at all, the riches of Argentina were gone and replaced by rampant inflation which took hold to this very day.

    BOTH COUNTRIES BRAZIL AND ARGENTINA WERE CONSUMING MORE THAN THEY PRODUCED WHICH RESULTED IN THEIR CENTRAL BANKS PRINTED MORE AND MORE MONEY FOR THE RULING GOVERNMENT WITH CONCOMITANT DEPRECIATION OF THE MONEY AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

    It was at this point, when our beloved Malaysia Government had all her money stolen outright by its SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs that our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team ousted the decadent and corrupt BN Government on 9 May 2018.

    And to return to her former Prosperity and Glory of the pre-2003 years, our beloved Malaysia with all of us will have to work hard once again to REPLACE WHAT HAS BEEN BLATANTLY AND BRAZENLY STOLEN FROM THE RAKYAT BY THOSE IN COMMAND FROM 2004-2018. According to the UN, IMF and World Bank Reports, RM 1 Trillion flowed overseas from 2002-2010 and another RM 500 Billion between 2011-2018.

    The sad and tragic political and socio-economic histories of Brazil and Argentina are not only confined to them BUT ALSO TO THE WHOLE OF SOUTH AND CENTRAL AMERICA. NOT A SINGLE SOUTH AMERICAN COUINTRY ESCAPED THE CURSE OF CORRUPTION AND DECADENCE since their hopeful beginnings in the 19th Century as independent countries free from the Spanish yoke.

    We see the poor South Americans demonstrating around their magnificent European style architectural buildings every night. Such scenes would either come from Peru or Argentina or Venezuela and so on. ALL SOUTH AMERCIAN COUNTRIES HAVE A LAND MASS AND INHABITED BY DECENT PEOPLE LIKE US THE MALAYSIANS. And yet, we could see these South Americans appeared to be dirt poor, the middle and the working classes.

    THE RESULT OF THE CORRUPTION AND DECADENCE OF THEIR GOVERNMENTS AS COULD BE DISCERNED AS FAR AS COULD BE REMEMBERED.

    And the main beneficiaries of all the corrupt and stolen money were SWITZERLAND, THE UNITED STATES AND WESTERN EUROPE. With so much crooked money deposited in these host countries, THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT TO IMPROVE THE LIVING STANDARDS OF THE POOR MASSES AND THE MIDDLE CLASS. And this sad story dragged on and on and on, with every incumbent Government trying to do a perfunctory patch job on the spot BUT NOTHING MORE OR WITH ANY SUCCESS, because hard-nosed investors are not going to throw away their hard-earned money to undeserving Governments.

    Most South American countries do not attract foreign investments because of the impossibility of doing a proper business like manufacturing in a decadent and corrupt environment which was governed by Governments WITHOUT MORALS OR FINANCIAL DISCIPLINE like the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs ! SUCH GOVERNMENTS ONLY ATTRACTED FOREIGN CROOKS AS WE COULD DISCERN IN THE FELDA AND OTHER FOREIGN CASES ETC.

    We do not need to go far to witness all the decadence and corruption of South American governments, JUST TURN ON YOUR TV TONIGHT !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem In you we TRUST. Keep smiling.

    A most significant headline struck my eyes this morning, thus

    ” MALAYSIA SENDS BACK 3,000 TONS OF WASTE.”

    The Minister involved in this matter deserves our thanks for a job well-done.

    We should send back the whole lot of waste which was dumped here during our beloved Malaysia’s Dark Ages of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elite and GLCs. It was so dark then – just like the moment before Dawn.

    This also exposed the Corruption of the Customs Department and its officers that they permitted RUBBISH TO BE IMPORTED INTO A SOVERIEGN NATION AGAINST HER NATIONAL INTEREST.

    All countries in the World laughed at us and even little Singapore with nothing could get anything out of the weak, corrupt and decadent BN Government with no backbone and had no words like ‘Sovereignty’ or ‘National Interest’ in their Corrupt and Decadent vocabulary. The Corrupt BN Government even copied the useless GLCs Policy of Singapore which is anti-democratic and corrupt.

    Waste of any country which was the worst form of human excretion, was dumped on us , Malaysians without notice by countries who probably thought our beloved Malaysia was like one of those riff-raff countries of South America or Africa – so low in esteem had our beloved Malaysia fallen during the Dark Ages – 2004-2018.

    Now we MUST CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN FOR STEALING SO MUCH MONEY OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT COFFERS.

    Not only that THE GOVERNMENT MUST SET UP A SPECIAL UNIT TO RETRIEVE ALL THE STOLEN MONEY EVEN IF THIS WILL TAKE 100 YEARS.

    These crooks not only STOLE NEARLY ALL OUR PUBLIC MONEY BUT ALSO BROUGHT THE BELOVED MALSYSIA’S GOOD NAME TO SO LOW IN THEIR ESTIMATION OF US, A SET OF GOOD PEOPLE WHO HAD HARMED NO ONE BUT ONLY CONTRIBUTED GOOD TO THE WORLD LIKE OUR UN PEACE-KEEPING FORCE IN THE CONGO IN THE 1960s.

    Worst of all, THESE CROOKS THOUGHT WE THE RAKYAT WERE SO STUPID THAT THEY COULD STEAL ANYTHING THEY LIKE WHILE IN POLITICAL POWER !

    JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL ! As LKS said yesterday, ‘ THE MACC MUST GO AFTER ALL THE SHARKS. ‘ To this I absolutely concur.

    We Malaysians, Malays, Chinese Indians and all must stand proud, strong and united to support the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side because of them, our beloved Malaysia has become ONE OF FOUR IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    I do not know whether I should laugh or cry my head off when I read this absurd headline

    1. ” ENTIRE SRC BOARD WENT TO SWITZERLAND.”

    These lot of fellows seemed unqualified to look after any money especially Public money left in their care. It was reported the whole gang of Directors went to Geneva, Switzerland to ascertain that the billions of ringgits deposited in a bank was there. What an idiotic thing to do going all the way to Switzerland after releasing the billions of ringgits at the drop of a hat. This looked just like a blatant attempt to have a jolly good holiday at one of the most expensive watering spots in the World at public expense. NO ONE IN HIS RIGHT SENSE OF MIND WOULD TRAVEL THOUSANDS OF MILES BY FIRST CLASS SIA TO COUNT HIS MONEY IN ANY SWISS ACCOUNT. Yet this fellow dared to tell the World that he and the whole Board did it. Imagine every company Board in the World travel to Switzerland to check their monies in Geneva. The hotels would have done a roaring trade and more.

    It was alleged some GLCs had their Board Meetings in the most expensive hotels in London. Board Meetings which were furnished with the complete trappings and accoutrements

    BUT THIS FELLOW IS TRYING TO BE SMART AND THINK US RAKYAT ARE STUPID FOOLS.

    In the 1970s, a Pahang Tunku already recommended me his private Geneva banker WITHOUT GOING TO GENEVA. I did not tell this Pahang Tunku that my eldest brother died of TB in Switzerland in 1929.

    What a stupid or clever lot of fellows we are beginning to find during the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its Corrupt elite and GLCs.

    2. ” KIT SIANG URGES MACC NOT TO SPARE ANY SHARKS.”

    This is the very first time that KS has spoken something apolitical. KUDOS TO HIM FOR SAYING SO.

    These Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government sharks 2004-2018 and their equally Corrupt elite and GLCs stole so much money out of the Malaysian Financial System that the WEALTH OF THE MALAYS, CHINESE, INDIANS AND ALL HAS BEEN REDUCED BY AT LEAST 30%-50%. All are affected from the very rich to the very disadvantaged. Vide. Reports of the UN, IMF and World Bank. During 2002-2010, RM 1 Trillion was siphoned overseas. Another RM 500 Billion went during 2010-2018.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    And the following headlines are nearer to our hearts, thus

    3. ” MALAYSIA’S NEWEST INDUSTRIAL PARK DRAWS JAPANESE INVESTMENT.”

    4. ” NEC ENTERS RACE TO LEAD MALAYSIA DIGITAL 1D PROJECT.”

    5. ” TRADE WARS STEERS CHINESE INVESTMENT TOWARDS SOUTH EAST ASIA.”

    These headliners are all harbingers of good news to come for our beloved Malaysia and will gather momentum as more impetus is applied by the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young. the Good and the Great. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we trust. Keep smiling.

  20. mubarakchan Jun 10,2019 10:35 AM

    Tun,

    There are no shortage of exciting headlines in recent weeks even as some countries were on holidays due to the festive season. Here are some which should arouse interest, thus :-

    1. ‘ CAN SINGAPOREANS BE THE JEDI OF THE TECH WORLD ‘ followed by this caption, ‘ CITY MUST OVERCOME THE SMALL SIZE, HIGH COSTS AND TALENT SHORTAGE TO STAND A CHANCE.’ A Chance ? Forced to ape Hollywood ?

    2. ‘ SINGAPORE SEEKS ANOTHER MIRACLE MAKER FOR THE NEXT PM.’ No Singaporean Genius has emerged since Lee Kuan Yew. Thanks to his 1972 2 Child Family Policy which gave rise to 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011.

    3. ‘ POWER UNSHACKLED : SINGAPORE’S OPEN ELECTRICITY MARKET . SINGAPORE’S STEADY AND SECURED CAMPAIGN TO OPEN UP THE ELECTRICITY MARKET SINCE 2001.’ This is a copy-cat Policy of Germany in the 1990s. I wonder how the Senoko Power Station now fares competing with at least 6 other power stations with low electricity charges !

    The above facts reveal the latest state of Singapore’s wherewithal in relation to the future. There is nothing to look forward to except to hope for another Lee Kuan Yew to lead them out of the very bleak future. As yet, NO SINGAPOREAN GENIUS HAS EMERGED SINCE LEE KUAN YEW.

    4. ‘ CONSTITUTIONALLY CORRECT. POLITICALLY WRONG.’

    5. ‘ SOLE PREROGATIVE OF THE PRIME MINISTER AND IS COMPLETELY CONSTITUTIONAL UNDER PRESENT LEGAL ARRANGEMENTS.’

    This refers to Promise 14 of the PH Manifesto.

    There should have been a disclaimer attached to the Manifesto which said if the promises are found to be unconstitutional, PH should not be held responsible and any action which is legally constitution thereof should be made an exception to the promise.

    But the air is now filled with oxymoron statements by wise old men, naysayers, troublemakers, detractors and morons.

    I would like to point out to all and sundry that any POLITICAL MANIFESTO IS NOT ENGRAVED IN STONE OR IRON-CAST OR A GUARANTEE OF POLITICAL PERFORMANCE. AT BEST, A MANIFESTO IS ONLY A GUIDE WHICH IS DEFINITELY NOT A RELIGIOUS TRACT OR POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY LIKE THE MEIN KAMPF OR THE LTTLE RED BOOK. So, what’s the fuss when everything is legal bar the shouting and screaming ?

    To provide more facts on the antics of our beloved Malaysia’s elite, here are some examples.

    1. I bumped into a high MAS official with round eyes and curly hair from Taiping who looked up to the ceiling of the tiny lift to avoid my gaze in an expensive luxury apartment block behind Harrods Knightsbridge London. The luxury block is the one with the fountain at the entrance along expensive Sloane Street. These facts I will not allege because I was there !

    2. It was alleged another high MAS official was red hot on some art in London and was using the MAS commercial liners like a private jet in his pursuit of these object d’art . I do not understand why he did not use his own pocket money to build up this collection of object d’art from 7,000 miles away ?

    3. Then, there was this MAS fellow who was alleged to have taken over the Full Board of Directors including the lady Director and in his zeal, he too bought a whole glass building near Harrods as his private abode. As you may discern, Tun, these luxury buildings are sited nearest to the Heathrow Airport as the crow flies.

    4. Why should MAS not be treated as a commercial concern when countries like The Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Spain etc have no qualms to sell their FAILING NATIONAL AIRLINES TO OTHER COUNTRIES ? Too often flying at 30,000 feet could be an ADDICTION !

    5. THE MAS SHOULD NOT BE AN EXAMPLE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S 3 GENERATIONS OF FAILED ELITE which has cost the Nation a lot of money to keep it in the air. Not only that, its officials took a liking to the finest luxuries available in London for money.

    6. The relevant authorities’ major task is NATION BUILDING IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST. Definitely the MAS should not be used as a showpiece anymore which our beloved Malaysia now has plenty as created by you, Tun. Precious public money should benefit the agriculture industry, the aged, the neglected young, health and education issues.

    7. MAS and its officials has had their fun and games whilst the going was good in the 20th and early 21st Century.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    What better topic to comment today than ‘The Elite and Elitism in Malaysia’?

    The Oxford Dictionary defines elite as ‘a group of people as the best in a particular society’ and elitism as ‘the belief that a society or system should be run by an elite’

    Developed countries have recognised the importance of elite and elitism to lead in politics and commerce at the very top. The education system was developed with elite schools and universities to nurture the elite.

    Since Independence in 1947, India has nurtured and enhanced the English language instead of suppressing it. There are clusters of institutions of higher learning in New Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Kolkatta and the rich fauna and flora region of Dehra Dun and Mussoorie at the foothills of the High Himalayas. The elite have not failed Mother India at times of crises or wars.

    Lee Kuan Yew in his zeal to create Singaporean geniuses through his 2 Child Family Policy 1972-1984, failed miserably. This produced 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 today. To this day, NO SINGAPOREAN GENIUS HAS EMERGED SINCE LEE KUAN YEW.

    When he discovered that Christ’s College was the best, he arranged places for Singaporeans and parachuted them in. There were no Singaporean Geniuses from this lot as well.

    In recent years, at least 10 Singaporeans who were Government Scholars were involved in sexual shenanigans of different kinds.

    In 2010 or thereabouts, a female ex-Oxbridge Government Scholar and her equally naked Caucasian boyfriend romped around the Holland Village one hot Saturday night. When she was asked,’ I was bored with my job.’ The Singapore Government was dumbfounded and dis not mete out any punishment.

    NO SINGAPOREAN GENIUS HAS EMERGED SINCE LEE KUAN YEW TO THIS DAY.

    And our beloved Malaysia’s elite ?

    I would comment that our beloved Malaysia’s elite had a penchant of shooting themselves in the foot and wiped themselves out through 3 generations ! How ?

    First, the BMF Scandal of 1982 wiped out the First Generation of Malaysian elite. The first signs of abuse by them were the incessant overseas travelling. In one trip, an elite not only made a round the World flight but visited the North and South Poles as well. Lavish penthouses were equipped with gold plated cutlery and bathroom utensils and much more. After the BMF Scandal, no Malaysian elite were left.

    Second, the Renong Scandal of 1997 wiped out the Second Generation of Malaysian elite whose high flying antics were the delight of the journalists and busy-bodies.

    One Malaysian ‘Onassis’ not only bought a painting made in Singapore but the whole Gallery and its lady curator as well.

    This lot of Renong period elite would kow-tow to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at breakfasts in Langkawi. But as soon as the Tun was out of sight, it was out of mind. The Tun thought he was talking to them on the 88th Floor but actually these elite’s minds were in the basement.

    Not only that, I was called up suddenly by one anointed elite sitting in the UMNO owned NSTP Chair. He made me to waitt outside his NSTP Office for one full hour. Then, he called me into his office and said only these words, ‘ DO NOT VOTE AGAINST DATO T OF MYCOM.’ and dismissed me. I never knew this fellow from Adam. He now minds his little listed company which has assets worth more than the market price of his shares. By now it is legend that Malaysian closest aides and elite seemed to be overwhelmed by little things which bogged their minds.

    The Renong elite generation has gone forever.

    Finally, the 1MDB elite Generation which began LIFE from 2004-2018 with Danaharta.- With cogent examples of CORRUPTION amongst Malaysian elite beginning with Sime Darby, there was no holding back with what the Malaysian elite could do during this period of Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018. The Darkest Period of our beloved Malaysia’s History as dark as the night just before Dawn. Without exception, the whole phalanx of Malaysian elite was CORRUPTED except only ONE !

    Now how many Malaysian elite left to lead and govern our beloved Malaysia ? Whichever way I counted, I could only come up with 2, one aged 80 and another 40. The 3 Generations of Malaysian elite have shot themselves in the foot and abused their POWER which resulted in disqualifying them for any responsible Public tasks !

    Why did I bring these facts up ? IT IS THE MALAYSIAN CONSTITUTION.

    The Malaysian Constitution in no uncertain terms states that our beloved Malaysia is governed according to the precepts as laid down therein.

    THEREFORE, WITHOUT OR LACK OF MALAY OR BUMIPUTRA ELITE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA CANNOT PROGRESS FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES EVEN WITH MANY NON-MALAY ELITE ! It is as simple as this. It is as dangerous as this that our beloved Malaysia has NOT ENOUGH MALAY/BUMIPUTRA TO BE AT THE TOP OF THE HIERARCHY !

    Yet we are faced with demands everyday by those who should know best that it is not that straightforward to appoint a qualified person to any post in the Government. There are constraints and now with more constraints DUE TO THE UTTER ABSENCE OF MALAY/BUMIPUTRA ELITE AVAILABE EVEN AFTER 3 GENERATIONS since 1957 ! How ? Thanks to the brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, he somehow managed to find these Malay/Bumiputra elite !

    It was a poignant remark when he recently admitted,’ His Cabinet could only garner 50% marks ! To my observation, he was generous and tolerant but with a full knowledge of the present situation arising from his appointed tasks of duty and responsibility.

    Yes ! To build up the Malay elite is a must. This is unavoidable because this is the golden mean by which all countries have been governed civilly and fairly through the Ages.

    And when the appointment of Latheefa Koya to be the Boss of MACC is put into perspective or context, this is poignant as well.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Many people love to talk every day without taking the Constitution into consideration. In you we trust. Keep smiling.

    It is a wonder why to this very day there are so many people who have stolen brazenly, blatantly and openly so much MONEY from the coffers of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs, have NO REGRETS AND REMORSE ?

    These people have no SHAME whatsoever about their dastardly deeds which took place at the expense of the years and years of hard-work by the Rakyat and the Prime Ministers whom they trusted and elected 1957-2003.

    The MONEY which these CROOKS have stolen could easily support 10 Emerging States in Africa as reported by the Annual Reports of the UN, IMF and the World Bank. RM 1 Trillion between 2002-2010 and another RM 500 Billion Between 2011-2018. And all these CROOKS were elected by the Rakyat on their SWORN PROMISES TO BETTER THE LIVES OF ALL IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    How some people apparently with impeccable backgrounds of Status, Wealth and Connections be so UNCIVILISED as to go well beyond the pale and would have RAPED THE COUNTRY FINANCIALLY TO THE GROUND AND TURNED OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA INTO A TROPICAL SAHARA DESERT if you with your BRILLIANCE AND COURAGE DID NOT TAKE UP THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OUST THESE CROOKS WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE ?

    A long time ago, I realised that it is not easy to govern as an elected representative of the Rakyat in our beloved Malaysia because there would be SACRIFICES AND OTHER AS YET UNDETERMINED FACTORS OR TEMPTATIONS TO BEAR. I willingly gave up the State and Federal seats offered to me by the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak in 1969 and 1974 respectively. Those who came after me failed in their elected tasks.

    Not only the brazen, blatant and open thefts of the Rakyat’s WEALTH, these crooks WITHOUT REMORSE COULD ALSO LIE SO NATURALLY ON THE WAY TO THE COURTS. All of them were loaded with titles of various descriptions in recognition of their official status.

    HAVE ALL THESE CROOKS BE DOPED WITH SOME LETHAL UBAT ? Or what ?

    Not one or two crooks but a whole phalanx of crooks which reached out of the Cabinet of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs right down to the very last digit of the whole Governmental Structure, were involved.

    Our distinguished Tun Ismail Mohd.Ali would have commented that the STINK WOULD REACH THE MOON !

    Some might escape the Sword of Damocles.

    But none will escape HISTORY which is the Finest Arbiter of the Truth.

    Until you suggested I do some writing, I thought only perfunctorily of the role of historians in the universities. But after this, I discovered that HISTORY OF A COUNTRY, OF MEN AND WOMEN, is an important building block in any country, big or small.

    That the History professors and their departments are the Finest Arbiters of the Truth which a country and its peoples must learn from the goodness or pitfalls of the past – because of the frailty of the ways of Humankind like forgetting about events of only yesterday ! Therefore, a country with a STRONG SENSE OF HISTORY AND THE PAST DOINGS OF ITS CITIZENS have the WILL AND WHEREWITHAL TO DO GREAT THINGS IN THE FUTURE TO COME.

    It is at this point that our beloved Malaysia has arrived today to become ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    Our beloved Malaysia has qualified to be one of the 4 most important countries of the World due to you, DSAI and the Team by your side.

    We all now have the paper qualification. But our beloved Malaysia has yet to BUILD UP ON ITS HARD-EARNED CREDENTIALS from now onwards to ETERNITY WHERE THERE IS NO BEGINNING OR ENDING. This is going to be one long march of SACRIFICE for all those who will be in COMMAND OF THE BELOVED MALAYSIA AT THE VERY TOP.

    Hence your eminent appointment of Latheefa Koya to be Boss of MACC is POIGNANT WITH MEANING.- A firm determination to reach for the Stars in the clear blue sky WITHOUT CORRUPTION. An ideal which deserved to be supported with both hands and all our hearts.

    CORRUPTION is the worst kind of malady ever affected Humankind and their Societies. Once the disease spreads, no one is exempted. Through the thousands of years, history has told us that Great Men and their Great Empires have fallen into dust and oblivion WITHOUT EXCEPTON.

    For all intents and purposes, our beloved Malaysia up to 9 May 2018 was already on her death-bed under INTENSIVE CARE. It is important for All Rakyat to know this bit of our history which was as DARK AS THE NIGHT BEFORE DAWN. A legacy from us to our successors and descendants so that WE WILL ALL HAVE A BETTER BELOVED MALAYSIA WITH FEWER THICK FACED CROOKS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    A very few minority of the wayward Opposition have grasped wrongly the issue of the excellent and proper appointment of Latheefa Koya as the Boss of MACC in order to raise the ire of the populace.

    They have not succeeded for the simple reason that these naysayers, troublemakers and detractors all have a vested interest IN HAVING A WEAK CHIEF OF MACC and not Latheefa Koya who is eminently suitable for this important job -TO CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    These naysayers, troublemakers and detractors are scared to death of Latheefa Koya because of her excellent reputation as an Iron Lady.

    NOW SHE IS THE IRON LADY OF THE MACC.

    This will put FEAR INTO THE CROOKS WHO WILL BE CAUGHT, CHARGED IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    Despite all the efforts of the good Lady, I am afraid CORRUPTION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL ONLY BE CONTAINED EVEN IN CHINA.

    For this subject of Corruption in Singapore Vide. http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives ‘Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’ September 2010.

    The more noise raised by the naysayers, troublemakers and the detractors the better BECAUSE TUN YOU HAVE SELECTED AND APPOINTED THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB !

    This is the best feedback of all from your experience.

    Some even absurdly commented grudgingly and with the taste of sour grapes in their mouths,’ Excellent appointment but procedures not followed.’ or ‘Excellent appointment but without merits.’

    IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO CALL SUCH OXYMORON STATEMENTS BY MORONS ‘ ? A flush of verbal diarrhoea by fake and self-appointed guardians of the piece wherever they are squatting. Some ex-MCA squatters too.

    To date, NO ONE HAS QUESTION THE COMPETENCE AND EFFICIENCY OF LATHEEFA KOYA. This is good.

    NIT PICKING BY THE NAYSAYERS, TROUBLEMAKERS AND DETRACTORS IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY. Some from the very people who used to pour the finest vitriol on you 2004-2017. YET THEY HAVE NOT LEARNT THEIR LESSONS IN MALAYSIAN REALPOLITIK. Too bad. Forever they will be barking up the wrong banyan tree !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Latheefa Koya is the right choice for MACC. In you we Trust. Keep smiling. The overwhelming majority are with you !

    As you have previously said that a week is a long time in Politics. events around the World in recent days have shown that our beloved Malaysia has a role to play as the fast escalation of the Sino-Amercian Trade War increases in intensity.

    We do not expect President Trump to ease up in his zeal to remain as the President when his term is up in 2020. Hence, he will keep the home fires burning to maintain support from his poor white supporters of the mid-West and the rust belts of America.

    Until the Democrats come up with a strong and charismatic contender for the Presidency, we will have to watch the tea leaves accordingly in our beloved Malaysia’s National Interest as a friend of all countries of the World.

    And the interesting headlines this morning thus :-

    1. ‘ CHINA WARNS AGAINST TRAVELLING TO THE UNITED STATES. ‘

    2. ‘ CHINESE STUDENTS CAUTIONED ABOUT STUDYING IN THE UNITED STATES.’

    1. China has warned its citizens not to travel to the United States as tourists in view of the shootings, robberies and assaults which have taken place in that country.

    A Chinese female graduate student was kidnapped and has been missing since. The trial of the suspected murderer is now on-going. There must have been many unfortunate cases affecting the Chinese.

    On this score, this is an opportunity for our Minister of Tourism and his Ministry to exhort our travel agents and their agencies to double their efforts to bring in the Chinese tourists as soon as possible because many other countries also have the same vision.

    MAS and Air Asia should be encouraged to do the same with their Chinese counterparts.

    This is now a good time to push for more Chinese tourists arrivals. Whatever mode of approach to increase the Chinese tourist volume should be encouraged as Malaysia has the best tourist infrastructures at the most attractive prices for all. The less red tape the better.

    2. For a similar reason as mentioned above and also an unspecified suspicion of all things Chinese have appeared in the institutions of higher learning in the United States.

    There have been reports of Chinese researchers being asked to leave in the middle of their course as it was alleged at the Emory University. Most Chinese university students are now treated as spies without substantiated evidence.

    Previous to this, there were scattered reports of negative treatments of Chinese students. There was a recent report that Trump would probe the Chinese students in the best universities of the United States like Harvard, Yale etc. Maybe with the intention of finding out how these Chinese students gained entry into them.

    Now our dynamic and motivated Minister of Education has ONE NEW IDEA and a zealous task ahead of him to exhort the Malaysian private colleges and universities of higher learning to offer their World Class standards to the Chinese students of China.

    This should be a combined effort to be effective.

    This is another area which you had created in your Vision of over 30 years ago and now the private colleges and universities are available to serve HUMANITY whenever there is a need LIKE THE DESIRE OF THE CHINESE STUDENTS OF CHINA TO BE EDUCATED IN PLACES OF HIGHER LEARNING IN MALAYSIA.

    These two factors of Chinese Tourists and Chinese Students of China are complimentary to both our countries being China and Malaysia. These are WIN-WIN situations for all concerned.

    Our beloved Malaysia should offer our well-known friendliness and hospitality to both the Chinese tourists and students at the present time when some countries do not welcome them.

    Like this, we Malaysians show to the World why our beloved Malaysia has become one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Strange to say some Malaysians with an INFERIORTIY COMPLEX deride this and still think Singapore is their OVERLORD ! I tell them without hesitation that they are probably from MARS or the MOON.

    As the saying goes, Tun,” The early bird catches the worm.”

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we Trust. Keep smiling.

    All in all, the Sino-China Trade War has created a witch-hunt against the mainland Chinese in America.

    Bravo to you with your golden touch in the appointment of LATHEEFA to be Boss of MACC. This was a master stroke which is now applauded by a HUGE MAJORITY OF THE RAKYAT who are just fed-up with the brazen and blatant RAPE of our beloved Malaysia’s financial resources by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs.

    A very small minority is against because of selfish political vested interests. These are the CROOKS.

    This financial RAPE of our beloved Malaysia’s financial resources was done not only by the Malaysian Leaderships 2004-2018 BUT FOREIGNERS WERE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE AS WELL eg. the Eagle, the Rocks, the Avenue, the KTM, Chief Editor’s Chair of true blue UMNO owned NSTP (then I thought we were colonised by Singapore), Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer, the HSR where 99% of costs are borne by Malaysia because 99% of the action is on Malaysian soil. Stupid.

    For 14 years, what the knowledgeable Rakyat read and saw was just ONE BIG RAPE OF THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BY THE VERY PEOPLE WE ELECTED WHO TREATED ALL OF US AS STUPID like using the Government to lend billions of ringgits DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BY WAY OF LETTERS OF GUARANTEE OR COMFORT to private individuals of NO STANDING or otherwise.

    A practice which was worse than a commercial bank because there was no collateral or solid business records provided by the Borrowers.

    Kudos to you again Tun.

    THIS TIME ROUND THERE ARE NO MORE CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES WHO COLLECTED BANKS, STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS, LISTED PUBLIC COMPANIES, ACRES OF BUKIT TUNKU LAND, BULLIED YOUR FRIENDS ETC and some wrapped themselves up with honorifics or titles. There were no exceptions but only TWO who did not create the scandals ! WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

    Your appointment of LATHEEFA for the top MACC job is brilliant and courageous.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN. To quote Deng Xiao Peng,’ IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER THE CAT IS BLACK OR WHITE AS LONG AS IT CATCHES MICE.’

    For the very first time, I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY RAKYAT APPLAUD THIS SIGNIFICANT APPOINTMENT OF LATHEEFA AS THE BOSS OF MACC.

    The Rakyat are really sore with the WEALTH THEY LOST THROUGH OUTRIGHT THEFT OF THE GOVERNMENT’S MONEY WHICH REDUCED THE VALUES OF ALL ASSETS AND STANDARD OF LIVING IN OUR BELOVED MALALYSIA DOWN BY 30%-50% over a period of 14 years 2004-2018. This is supported by Reports of the UN, IMF and World Bank thus :-

    1. Between 2004-2010, an outflow of RM 1 Trillion overseas. And another RM 500 Billion between 2011 and 2018.

    2. Between 2004-2018, our beloved Malaysia’s Public Debt increased to RM 1 Trillion WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR THIS HUGE EXPENDITURE OR DEBT.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem IN YOU WE TRUST, KEEP SMILING.

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fithri to you, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah and all the Family.

    Without the crooked closest aides, the real men and women of our beloved Malaysia will now build and build the Wealth of the Nation once again and more.

    As one of the 4 most important small Nations of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia is now led by your brilliance and courage with DSAI and the Team by your side. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Here are some absorbing headlines of today, thus :-

    1. ” PM : BE THANKFUL FOR BEING ABLE TO CELEBRATE RAYA IN PEACE. ”

    This is self-explanatory. Only a deaf, dumb and blind person will not understand this simple message.

    2. ” NEW MACC CHIEF WILL SEND SHIVERS DOWN CROOKS’ SPINES _ NGOs.”

    A new leaf of governance with honour, transparency and justice. Good, very good.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    NO MORE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCS lending to private individuals and personal friends as though the Rakyats’ money belonged to their grand-fathers or mothers.

    3. AND SOMETHING WHICH IS UNBECOMING OF A FIRST WORLD STATE WHICH WAS INSPIRED BY (AS ALLEDGEDLY REPORTED) ‘FABRICATIONS ABOUT THE PAP ‘ of Singapore which has now the latest ANTI-FAKE NEWS LAW, thus the headlines allegedly from this source :-

    i) ” DR M touts (my italics) MALAYSIA AS DESTINATION FOR GLOBAL STUDENTS. ” with a colour pic of Dr M side by side with the following in the Facebook, thus

    ii) ” RAFIDAH SPEAKS OUT ON THE FLAWS OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. ” with the worst pic ever taken of the dear Lady.

    Why are the governing political Singaporeans so unhappy and dislike our beloved brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd. Ali were both recently bestowed with the highest academic honours by the National University of Singapore, the best in Asia ?

    The incongruity between the headlines of today and the pukka honours of yesterday does not seem to jive with sentiments as expressed in such a tiny place like Singapore.

    In fact, snide remarks and attacks have been lavished on our beloved brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad since he with DSAI and the Team ousted the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs since 9 May 2018.

    Is the real reason for unwarranted attacks and snide remarks which emanated from the heart core of Singapore’s seat of Power arose from GROSS UNHAPPINESS WITH THE NON-RATIFICATION OF THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER THE TPPA/CPTPP ? The final legacy of Lee Kuan Yew for his inheritors which he thought would save Singapore from a very bleak future ? Or whatever reasons, we Malaysians could not think of ?

    AS FAR AS I AM AWARE OUR BELOVED BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS NOT ANTI-SINGAPORE OR SINGAPOREAN LIKE MYSELF. AND HE DID NOT LIFT A SINGLE FINGER TO INTERVENE, INTERFERE OR DENIGRATE SINGAPORE’S INTERESTS, SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS. If at all, he had a RESPONSIBILITY AND DUTY TO SAFEGUARD THE SOVERIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT. No more. No less.

    To allegedly fake Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s real intentions by a MISLEADING HEADLINE AS PRODUCED BY Fabrications about PAP is mischievous and downright unbecoming of an apparatus of a First World county WHEN TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WAS REFERRING TO MALAYSIA’S TERTIARY EDUCATION OF WORLD CLASS STANDARD PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN MALAYSIA FOUNDED BY HIM IN THE 1980s and the 1990s.

    Yet, the Fabrications about PAP juxtaposed YB Tan Sri Rafidah’s honest comments on MALAYSIA’S DOMESTIC OR NATIONAL EDUCATION SYSTEM WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSTIES OF WORLD CLASS STANDARD AS MENTIONED BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD.

    The intention of the warped mind of the perpetrator from Singapore is clear, very clear – that is we Malaysians are stupid and do not know what we are talking about.

    For starters, if we Malaysians are stupid, we would not be ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA ! And here are some factual information about Singapore :-

    1. According to the Singapore Government’s White Paper on Population 2011, there are 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50 in an indigenous population of 3.2 Million with 1.2 Million FTs and 800,000 PRs. Since 1972, NO SINGAPOEAN GENIUS HAS EMERGED YET !

    2. It was NOT Malaysia who caused the LOSS OF SINGAPORE’S QUESIONABLE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989.

    It was Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel of 1990, ‘ Globalization. Free Trade, Human Rights.’

    These were not only anathema to Singapore’s interests but in one fell swoop by the BRICS (then with Uncle Sam’s blessings) the whole of Singapore’s lucrative QUESTIONABLE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADE OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 WAS TAKEN OVER BY THE BRICS AND GONE FOREVER.

    This hurt erupted in 2002 when Singapore’s first technical recession appeared. since 2002,

    Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% GDP from 2002-2018 – 17 years as a First World country but could achieve a fizzy 7% as a Third World country because of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 INITIATIVES TO SAVE HIS LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS BEING TEMASEK. FT IMPORTS, 2 CASINOS AND THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER THE TPPA/CPTPP failed since 2006.

    3. In recent days, Singapore’s PMI fell below 50 and the GDP for the rest of 2019 will only be 1.9 % as reported with signs of a weakening manufacturing industry.

    IT IS COMMONSENSE THAT THE MISFORTUNES WHICH HAD BEFALLEN (even with free water paid for by Malaysia and all the free Malaysian goodies garnered by Singapore 2004-2018 through hot relationships and private retreats) OUR FRIEND SINGAPORE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH MALAYSIA OR OUR BELOVED BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD.

    We always wish Singapore and her citizens well.

    In fact, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad did not lie when he remarked that Singapore and Malaysia are conjoint twins. Believe it or not.

    If at all, I have always commented that Singapore should leave her 20th Century thinking and moves behind in the past because the 21st Century is another day and this has caused Singapore time, money and distraction dangerously as events now unfold.

    4. The weakness of Singapore arose from Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel “Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights” which licenced the BRICS to trade freely and globally so much so that President Trump tried to roll this back. And Singapore was caught in a MULTI-POLAR WORLD AND GOT LOST IN THE WASH INSTEAD OF A MONOPOLISTIC AND UNILATERAL WORLD OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 WHEN SHE WAS THE BLUE EYED BOY OF THE WEST ! This unfortunate experience of Singapore is best illustrated by :

    ” THE AMERICANS FORGET EASILY. THE BRITISH TRY NOT TO FORGET. THE FRENCH NEVER FORGET. THE CHINESE NEVER NEVER NEVER FORGET. THE MALAYSIANS FORGIVE AND FORGET.” Singapore became the only casualty of the Post Cold War World 1990-2019. And she will remain so if she avoids the REALPOLIK NOW EVOLVING.

    And the answers to Singapore’s present DILEMMA is not Malaysia or the tomes in Borders or Kino but hidden in the deep recesses of Singapore’s elites brains. THINK !

    How come A THIRD WORLD SINGAPORE COULD ACHIEVE A FIZZY 7% GDP (1948-1996) and a FIRST WORLD SINGAPORE COULD NOT BREACH 3% GDP WITH ALL THE TRAPPINGS OF A FIRST WORLD STATE 2002-2019 ?

    Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad an honourable, honest and just person has mentioned that it is time for ASEAN to work together for the common good.

    In other words, FORGET ABOUT THE NIT-PICKING AND GO FOR THE BROAD STROKES OF SUCCESS FOR ALL IN ASEAN BECAUSE YESTERDAY WAS YESTERDAY AND TODAY IS TODAY AS ONE UMNO TAN SRI TOLD ME. This one secret why our beloved brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is so successful.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always! No problem because your mind-set has always been to go for the BROAD STROKES BRILLIANTLY AND COURAGEOUSLY. In you we trust. Keep smiling. NO NIT-PICKING WE ARE MALASIANS !

    As more horror stories emerged concerning the unfettered financial indiscipline of a governance with no checks and balances by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elites and its GLCs, how many Malaysians are aware that the following have never been done by any Government around the World but only in Malaysia ?

    1. A renowned Malay FELDA Trust Group buying the assets of the FOREIGN FRIEND OF THE PRIME MINISTER BY WAY OF A PRIVATE DEAL AT OVER THREE TIMES THE LISTED MARKET PRICE WITHOUT VALUATION AS ALLEGED ?

    2. In 1MDB, a total stranger in his early twenties was permitted to HANDLE RM 42 BILLION GOVERNMENT GUARANTEED MONEY BORROWED FROM THE BANKS WITH THE PRIME MINISTER AS ADVISER AS ALLEGED.

    3. In KWAP, ALL THE OFFICERS INVOLVED KNEW OF THE PRIME MINISTER’S REQUEST FOR RM 2.4 BILLION BUT NOT AN ORDER. YET THE RM 2.4 BILLION WAS RELEASED WITHOUT PROPER DOCUMENTATION AS ALLEGED.

    4. In the NFC scandal, THE BN OOVERNMENT WAS THE FIRST IN THE WORLD TO LEND MONEY TO A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL LIKE A COMMERCIAL BANK BUT WITHOUT THE NORMAL REQUIREMENT OF SECURITY AND SOLID BUSINESS RECORD AS ALLEGED. This showed the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs IMMATURITY.

    Not only that if the Borrower had put the RM 253 Million into a financial institution which gave them a 8% per annum TAX FREE return, these folks would have just sat on their backsides and collected the RM 22 Million per annum TAX FREE and ex-gratis from the BN Government. But instead they spent and spent on condos and Mercs all over the shop as alleged. This showed the IMMATURITY OF THE BORROWER.

    THE IMMATURITY OF THE LENDER AND THE IMMATURITY OF THE BORROWER CAUSED BOTH TO LOSE ALL THE MONEY. Otherwise, the folks could have returned the CAPITAL to the New and Incorruptible Government 2004-2018 and kissed the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs good buy.

    5. It is alleged billions of ringgits were paid for KIM ENG SECURITIES SINGAPORE WHICH THE OWNER, (SISTER-IN-LAW OF LEE KUAN YEW AND SECOND WIFE OF HIS BROTHER, CREATED WITH JUST A PAPER LICENCE AND NO ASSETS) by Maybank through the fellow who is NOW THE NEWLY APPOINTED VICE-CHANCELLOR OF A REPUTABLE UNIVERSITY IN MALAYSIA. Many other Singaporean broker would have been happy to sell for a song in those difficult times after October 2008 !

    IMMATURITY BREEDS IMMATURITY WITH NO CHECKS AND BALANCES !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  29. mubarakchan Jun 2,2019 1:33 PM

    Tun,

    A fond saying of P P Narayanan if you recall him who was the Leader of the Malaysian Union Movement for many years, was, ‘ Opportunity arises from Crisis.’

    When events turned for the better in our beloved Malaysia since 9 May 2018, I have been exceedingly happy even though I was aware that the wealth of ALL THE RAKYAT had been reduced by at least 30% to 50% in just 14 years, by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    With the New and Incorruptible Government firmly under your hands with DSAI and the Team by your side, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat can onky rise again to GREATER HEIGHTS OF ENDEAVOUR AND ACHIEVEMENT. The Good will prevail over the Bad.

    To begin with, we are all in good health and spirits to do this arduous job which has been entrusted upon us by the Corrupt BN Government which permitted our National Debt to rise to RM 1 Trillion from 2004-2018.

    Not only that RM 1.50 Trillion was permitted to be siphoned out of the country during 2002-2018. Vide. UN, World Bank, IMF Reports. And another 1,000,000 barrels of oil from sanctioned Saddam Hussein into a private individual hands. Vide UN Report which named this fellow as heading its List.

    With this outflow of money, our beloved Malaysia was literally bled to death bringing the fall of THE VALUES OF ALL ASSETS BELONGING TO THE RAKYAT INCLUDING THE RINGGIT.

    Hence, NOT ONLY THE MALAYS ARE POORER BY AT LEAST 50% but ALSO THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS AND ALL. No person can escape this blood letting induced by the constant outflow of money OUT OF THE MALAYSIAN FINANCIAL SYSTEM WHICH WERE CONDUCTED BY A VERY FEW ! This money is now lying IDLE IN THE BANKS OF THE HOST COUNTRIES INSTEAD OF BEING UTILISED FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S DEVELOPMENT CREATING JOBS AND BETTER SALARIES AND STANDARD OF LIVING- RM 1.5 TRILLION IN FOREIGN HANDS ! The Rakyat became poor due to the Auto-Pilot Policy of the Prime Ministers whom they elected between 2004-2018.

    Hence, the Japanese being well-informed just left Malaysia for other countries. Who wants to do business in a Corrupt country which CORRUPTION REDUCES THE PROFIT MARGINS WHICH IS UNTENABLE ESPECIALLY IN MANUFACTURING ?

    Look what happened to Proton with all the crook closest aides lining their pockets from padding wheel rims, waste sales, radios, plastic windscreens, pumps etc. All purchases were corruptly padded. How to make money like this ? The Proton Concept was perfect but the closest aides were SELF-SERVING.

    To quote P.P. Narayanan again, ‘ OPPORTUNITY ARISES FROM CRISIS.’

    With a solid political base which bolsters the New and the Incorruptible Government, the attraction for local and foreign investors is great especially our beloved MALAYSIA HAS NOW BECOME ONE OF 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    Only Malaysia has a clean and transparent slate for all investors at the moment.

    Thus, when a headline like the following indicates the great potential of Malaysia’s attraction to foreign investors. Also, it should be the harbinger of better things to come due to the increasing intensity of Trade Wars as Trump rolls back Uncle Sam’s Post-Cold War 1948-1989 hegemonic spiel, ‘GLOBALIZATIOIN, FREE TRADE, HUMAN RIGHTS.’ which has become as important as the dodo bird in the eyes of certain Americans. And Singapore is the ONLY CASUALTY !

    ” JAPANESE CORPORATION GIANTS PLEDGE TO EXPAND INVESTMENTS IN MALAYSIA SAYS DR M.”

    Since 2003, the Japanese presence was replaced by South Korean’s which focussed on the retail trade of our business environment. Some attempts were made to penetrate light industrial set-ups like Proton by using Bumiputra proxies. But with the return of the Japanese Sogososhas, their investments will be meaningful if a firm assurance that Japanese investments in Malaysia will always be welcome and not neglected like by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs.

    NO INVESTOR LIKES TO DEAL WITH A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT BECAUSE IN MANUFACTRING THERE IS NO MARGIN FOR CORRUPTION BECAUSE OF COMPETITION IN PRICING AND QUALITY. Hence the JAPANESE INVESTORS MOVED AWAY FROM MALAYSIA BETWEEN 2004-2018 AS THEIR BUSINESS CULTURE DOES NOT PERMIT HANKY-PANKY. I know them well. I learnt from the Japanese in the 1960s.

    Therefore, with all things being equal, MALAYSIA MUST NOW MAKE STRENUOUS EFFORTS TO TELL NOT ONLY THE JAPANESE BUT ALSO THE WORLD THAT THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE WARMLY WELCOMES ALL BONA FIDE INVESTORS TO MALAYSIA. This is the NUB. This is the RUB.

    Anyone now found to HINDER THE PROCESS OF SMOOTH AND FREE MOVEMENT OF FOREIGN AND LOCAL INVESTMENTS SHOULD BE CHARGED IN COURT AND GIVEN 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN. Malsysia once had 10 doors to enter. Behind each door a smiling and hospitable Malaysian will smile and reply, ” No problem’ when asked. But this is where the problem begins. Unlike Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore etc has only ONE door to enter. Then in Malaysia the problem was to find the right door eg. Lynas experience ?

    With the minimum of red-tape, Malaysia has many areas which are suitable and cheap with good labour for investors seeking shelter in a safe haven like in the Northern Territories of Penang mainland, Kedah, Perak, etc. Sabah and Sarawak and the FTZs which dot the Peninsula. Any special requirement should be seriously considered in the National Interest.

    With ASEAN which by chance has become a safe haven for manufacturing, trade and finance to the World being located between the peace-loving Nations of West Asia and East Asia. It is now time for the ASEAN countries with our beloved Malaysia at its HUB promote and organise beneficial projects for themselves and the World. As P.P. Narayanan often quoted, ‘ OPPORTUNITY ARISES FROM CRISIS.’ ASEAN and Malaysia will prevail.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. In you we Trust. Our beloved Malaysia will prevail. Keep smiling.

    In the media, we read about the US-China Trade War is about to intensify or the US-EU Trade War will begin soon or Mexico does not want a Trade War with the US. Most of the Malaysians are wondering what on earth is happening and why suddenly Trade Wars cropped up all over. The reason again rests with history, the importance of history for Humankind affairs. History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    It all began after the implosion of Communism in 1989 which was the result of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    During the Cold War 1948-1989, it was one Super Power the United States against another the Soviet Union. Trade was clearly defined in black and white as was the politics. Many dictators all over the World were supported by the United States.

    It was during this Cold War 1948-1989 that Lee Kuan Yew could inveigle the best Questionable and Unmentionable Deals or Trades for Singapore. This huge largesse pushed Singapore from the Third to the First World by the 1990s which he bragged about in his book of the same title.

    But Singapore is only a tiny place in the Pax America scheme of things.

    In post-Cold War 1990, Uncle Sam came out with his hegemonic spiel, “Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights” which were anathema to Singapore governance. But this gave immediate licence to the BRICS to grab Singapore’s Monopoly in the Questionable and Unmentionable Trades which were very profitable. But it was the Normal Trades with the United States which were both the icing and the cake – as foreign goods maybe imported tariff free or with nominal tariff.

    All major countries of the World and the BRICS from 1990 to 2018 chalked up hefty trading surpluses with the United States.

    Countries like China could amass up to US$ 2-3 Trillion in reserves of which part was in US Treasury Bills.

    At this point, President Trump in order to safe-guard his support in the poor white industrial areas of America could whip up support by pointing his finger at the foreign bogeymen who stole their jobs amongst many other intangible factors which he has since revealed.

    The first target was China which was easy to understand for his electorates.

    And President Trump will exploit this Tariff War according to the waxing and waning of his political support. Other side Trade Wars with Japan, EU, Mexico etc., he could involve them according to his political needs.

    Since the Trade War has been politicised by President Trump, this is going to be of long duration. The end result is as yet unknown with the judges still out. In the meantime, the World waits with anticipation and anxiety which are not good for business. With America giving up its fight for the Freedom of others but only for herself according to President Trump. There is a diplomatic saying thus ,

    “The Americans forget easily. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget.’

    Against this back-drop of America’s intentions, we have the following headlines recently :-

    1. ” DR M SAYS ‘HUAWEI GETS MALAYSIA’S SUPPORT’ OR ‘LYNAS MAY CARRY ON WITH ITS RARE EARTH MINING’ OR ‘TRADE WARS ARE STUPID’ OR ‘MAYBE THE GOLD STANDARD BE ADOPTED FOR TRADE’. ”

    What our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad commented are based on Sovereignty and National Interest coupled with Common Sense.

    Like this our beloved Malaysia’s all round interests are safe-guarded in the interests of the Rakyat. In other words, our Foreign Policy is expected to be friends of all countries.

    Unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 with its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs which every Policy move it made was to benefit Singapore or the self-interests of individuals eg. from the rocks via the Avenue to the UMNO NSTP Chief Editor’s Chair for a hard-core PAP cadre and more.- culminating in the signing of the Lee Kuan Yew creation – the TPPA/CPTPP – Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer. Vide chedet.cc.org. Archives ‘Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’ September 2010.

    At times like these, the headlines from Singapore thus,

    2. ” SINGAPORE LEAPFROGS HONG KONG AND US TO BECOME WORLD’S MOST COMPETITVE ECONOMY. ”

    Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% GDP for 16 years 2002-2018 despite Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives – Temasek, imported FTs, 2 casinos, the TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer which all failed as at 2019.

    3. ” SINGAPORE IS 8TH MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN ASIA PACIFIC.”

    Thanks to Singapore, Malaysia is just listed behind at 9th !

    4. ” SOUTH EAST ASIA GIVEN NEW LEVERAGE AS CHINA AND US BATTLE OF INFLUENCE.”

    These Singaporean concocted headlines would have impressed those who are not aware that

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA since 9 May 2018.

    Malaysia is the most important strategically and geo-politically with a New and Incorruptible Government which has a strong democratic mandate from the Rakyat.

    As the Nexus of ASEAN, Malaysia’s influence will be all pervasive and enduring politically not only in Asia but the World supported by her peoples who are known to be successful developers of an emerging country with the exception of the Dark Ages of Malaysia’s history 2004-2018 when the 2 Prime Ministers who were unlike their distinguished and honourable predecessors the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad – 1957-2003, who worked hard and left behind a rich and wealthy country as at 2003. By 2018, Malaysia was up to her eve-balls in debts over RM 1 Trillion WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.

    Taking all the facts as mentioned above, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat are fortunate that the country is now governed by the New and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    To confirm the good tidings, just read again the barren Singaporean headlines which are actually based on intangible information and not on real substantive facts.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Where else but Malaysia ?.

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS. My friend, I do not know what surprised you most arising from my Comments in this distinguished Blog. As I said before I only present the facts which were available to me so that ALL will understand the STORY behind the headline like the Lee Kuan Yew’s creation the TPPA.CPTPP/Malaysia Killer/Malays/SME Killer. What I commented is not slanderous and libellous which I avoid stringently always. What I mentioned is STRICTLY FACTUAL which anyone may obtain from historical records anywhere. No more. No less. Why do I do it ?

    THE BEST FORM OF SHOOTING DOWN ANY LIE IS TO PRESENT THE TRUE FACTS, my friend.

    For example, many asked me not to mention Lee Kuan Yew since he is dead.

    MY REPLY WAS THAT IF THIS COURSE OF ACTION IS FOLLOWED, WE MIGHT AS WELL SACK ALL THE HISTORY PROFESSORS AND THEIR DEPARTMENTS SINCE THEIR ONLY SUBJECTS ARE DEAD PEOPLE. See the logic. See the emotion blinding factual resoning.

    History is the Finest Arbiter of the Truth, my friend TWIN PEAKS. Without History to guide us, the Government, the Political Leaders will always make the same mistakes like collecting 10,000 Rolex, over and over again.

    This is also why I said to Tun, ‘IN YOU WE TRUST’ with the full knowledge that he is steeped in information and knowledge during this critical period of our beloved Malaysia’s history.

    To have our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to take up the RESPONSIBITLITY to put Malaysia’s self-inflicted problems on an even keel can only be attributed to the Will of God and Tun’s character of honour, integrity and justice.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. IN YOU WE TRUST> Keep smiling.

    Tun

    First I wish you “Bon Voyage” on your visit to Japan for 3 days to attend this important International Forum to be held in Tokyo. As reported, you will give an important speech at the Forum.

    Second, as always there are matters of concern which affect us the Rakyat here and there in this vast land of our beloved Malaysia, thus :-

    ” FISH BREEDERS IN TROUBLED WATERS ”

    The troubled waters being the sea off Teluk Bahang, Penang. This is May 2019 news. But the story is much deeper and longer than this.

    In 1966, under the auspices of the Chief Minister of Penang, Wong Pow Nee, my friend Tan Seng Keat who was the Head of the DID Penang and was also the Commandant, Auxiliary Police, Penang was sent my the Penang Government to Honolulu, Hawaii to study whether their sewerage system be installed in Penang’s George Town. He found the Honolulu System too expensive for Penang. That was that. Fast trek to the mid-1980s.

    In the mid-1980s, the Senior Tutor of my college went for a swim off the Batu Ferringhi beach. He told me that after the swim, his whole body itched. I smiled and did not say anything.

    For the cognoscenti, it is a well-known fact that the raw sewerage of George Town has been flowing Northwards with the current towards Tanjong Bungah, Batu Ferringhi and Teluk Bahang since the founding of George Town by Francis Light in the 18th Century.

    Before the huge concrete developments from the reclaimed sea at Tanjong Bungah, the hills behind Batu Ferringhi and maybe Teluk Bahang, there were no sewerage trickling down to the sea in these places. But now with the pace of developments of condos and other dwellings over the last 30 years, the total sewerage which flows to the open sea to join up with that from George Town must really add up to a very high pollution content of the off-shore sea by raw sewerage.

    Yet the Penang State Government has not made any move to remove the raw sewerage altogether from its adjunct sea waters and is mum on this important health, environmental and tourist matter.

    The Master Plan which is out of date does not mention about removing raw sewerage totally from the sea like Honolulu, Hawaii.

    The Plan apparently called for spending billions of ringgits on reclaiming 3 islands, a Highway and a Tunnel which should all be scrapped and replaced by the New Proposals to create Revenue for Penang.

    Lee Kuan Yew never borrowed a single cent for the modernisation of Singapore. He could clean up the smelly Singapore River as well which he showed you.

    The New Proposals call for the installation of proper equipment to remove the raw sewerage like Honolulu, Hawaii. The money would be forthcoming from the utilization of the 3 Gold mines of Penang being the Old Bayan Lepas Airport, the Old George Town and the Butterworth Airfield maybe with a subsidy from the Federal Government using the best Asian Technology now available.

    If the RAW SEWERAGE NOW POLLUTING THE VITAL AREAS OF PENANG LIKE TANJONG BUNGAH, BATU FERRINGHI, TELUK BAHANG IS NOT TREATED, SOONER OR LATER, THE POLLUTION WILL OVER-WHELM THE ECO-SYSTEM NOW IN EXISTENCE LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE REARING OF FISH IN TELUK BAHANG. Then, all the sea water becomes TOXIC AND UNFIT FOR HUMAN ACTIVITY OF ANY KIND.

    FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED.

    With the coming of the GAME CHANGER KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENTS IN PENANG, KEDAH, PERLIS, PERAK, KELANTAN AND TRENGGANU, the huge developments so generated will definitely assist in modernising the ancient George Town Sewerage System for the good of ALL the Rakyat.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling.

  34. twinpeaks May 29,2019 7:00 AM

    Just to add a biting comment to all these nonsense. While Sabah is glad that it is part of a nation that aspires to become a developed country unlike Indonesia and the Philippines, I cannot help but say what I see. So, if Tun does not agree with what I say, then I have nothing else to add for fear of a backlash.
    When I studied in England since my childhood, over the years until I graduated, I noticed that in Europe, their citizens Expect a Very Clean place to live in and a country that is free of immigrants from non-Western countries. In Japan, their citizens Expect a Very Clean place to live and a country that is free of immigration from any country.
    But here is the difference that I noted.. In Europe, they Expect their governments to take care of these matters, and they think that it is (primarily) Not their individual duties to look after the environment or disallow non-Western immigration. IN SHORT, EUROPEANS WILL BLAME EVERYTHING ON THEIR GOVERNMENTS. If you don’t believe me, just observe the nature of their constant street protests against their governments. This they call Civil Society and they said very healthy too (just the way a democracy should work, they say). In fact, Malaysians have caught up with this culture in recent years, and we call them Bersih 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc. (and we say this is how a healthy democracy should work too).
    However in Japan (and I cannot think of another country like it), the ordinary citizens don’t complain to their government if they themselves forget to collect litters thrown by foreign visitors on the streets. They will gladly behave like a cleaner and find the nearest garbage bin. And they feel proud of this it. Also, they don’t wait for their government to tell them Not to allow workers from Bangladesh and Myanmar or America and Europe, to steal the menial dirty jobs that they themselves can do. And they feel proud of this behaviour.
    Finally, over here IN Malaysia (and unfortunately.. also Sabah now), I notice that Not only people don’t blame the local councils and state/federal governments if the 100 year old raintrees are razed along Jalan Tun Razak to make way for an elevated superhighway, I fact people encourage them to do it (citing not enough roads for their cars, etc). On the environment, we don’t hear the average citizens proudly help to clean the streets of litters like the Japanese, or complaining to the local councils of why there is so much haze, IN FACT the average citizen in this country will spit on the streets and shopkeepers leave open/smelly garbage on the roadsides like in Manila and Jakarta, housewives just find the nearest streams or monsoon drains to unload their unwanted household garbage. The only place that is kept cleaned is their own condominium units. And they just shrug and say.. well everyone does it. Make money and live for today, and let the kids look after tomorrow.. tomorrow is not our concern. (I think you get my drift).
    On citizenship, this country is like a shopping mall. Anyone can come and Anyone can stay. Malaysia is Open for the whole world. And even better, if they come to do the dirty works that very few in this country are willing to do. Imagine a Malaysian parent saying.. “Well son, if you want to grow up to become a low-paid security guard, you have my blessing and I will send you to get a degree in Security Guardship. You don’t have to become a Doctor if you don’t want to”.

  35. twinpeaks May 28,2019 10:54 PM

    I PRAY that you were just joking, Mubarakchan. It is not April Fool’s Day, you know.

  36. twinpeaks May 28,2019 10:50 PM

    That is just unbelievable if what you had just said is true about the imported plastic waste and radioactive waste allowed into this country, of all places on earth. I just don’t know what to say.. I am speechless !!
    We keep saying that we are going to beat everyone else and become a developed country by 2020 or whatever, then we ALLOW other people’s garbage in? What is this nonsense??
    Do we even realise that developed countries of the west even PAY developing countries to accept undesirable refugeesfrom non-Western countries like Syria, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar? And we take them in and treat them with hospitality. Humanitarian and foolish? Or both? I better stop saying anymore now.. I have lost my appetite.

    Tun

    I have made some Comments that the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs have brought our beloved Malaysia down to her knees during 2004-2018. Here are some headlines which confirmed this DISGRACEFUL LACK OF SELF-RESPECT AND HONOUR thus :-

    1. ” PLASTIC WASTE FROM BANGLADESH FOUND SHIPPED TO MALAYSIA ” Even Bangla looked down on Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    2. ” 60 CONTAINERS OF PLASTIC WASTE IMPORTED BY ‘TRAITORS’ TO BE SENT BACK. ” Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    3. ” MALAYSIA TO SHIP 400 TONNES PLASTIC WASTE BACK TO COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN. ” Return to Sender and send them the Bill.

    4. ” NOT WITHIN OUR JURISDICTION TO ASCERTAIN PLASTIC WASTE ORIGIN SAYS PERAK ENVIRONMENTAL DEPT.” Then let the Dept be closed down since they do not know what they are supposed to do and transfer the whole lot out of cosy Ipoh. It was widely reported even on the BBC that this waste came from England with English markings.

    The headlines are not only DISGRACEFUL BUT ALSO SHOW THE UTTER WEAKNESS OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND THE GLCs – a situation which involved the Government from the top to the bottom.

    The utter Corruption of the Customs Dept. Malaysia is for all to see as the front-line entry culprit who permitted the STINKING WASTE TO LAND ON OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S SHORES. EVEN BANGLADESH TOOK PART IN THIS DISGRACEFUL CAPER OF CORRUPTION AND FRAUD.

    All such wastes should be send back to the countries of origin with a hefty Bill as costs. AND IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY SUE THE CULPRITS BOTH AT HOME AND ABROAD.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    Kudos to the YB Minister who showed courage to expose this wanton Scandal which denigrated the RESPECTED AND HONOURABLE STANDING OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. This also shows the Corrupt BN Government had sunk so low as to be SMEARED OVER BY THE STINKING WASTES DUMPED HERE BY COUNTRIES LIKE BANGLADESH !

    Dumping of wastes from ships have been going on for years around our sea waters like at the mouth of the Sungei Tinggi, Johor. Such culprits must not only be fined but jailed as well – a couple of years jail will scare off the rest.

    It is alleged even this Australian firm at Kuantan had pretensions of doing the same. This time the waste is RADIOACTIVE. Recently, it was alleged that this RADIOACTIVE WASTE COULD REPLACE PHOSPHATE IN OUR HORTI-CULTURE. We are not stupid Malaysians anymore.

    WHY THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT REFUSES TO TAKE BACK THIS RADIOACTIVE WASTE IF IT IS NOT RADIOACTIVE ? With radioactivity in all our vegetables and fruits, all Malaysians will be irradiated and all our babies will be born with one eye or 3 legs. Stupid.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Our beloved Malaysia was so weak between 2004-2018 it became the RUBBISH DUMP OF THE WORLD with the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs saying, ‘ THANK YOU VERY MUCH ‘ because the words SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST WERE NEVER IN THEIR VOCABULARY !

  38. mubarakchan May 27,2019 11:11 PM

    Tun

    The World has never been a quiet place. If a person cares to refer back to the news of the World in the 1930s or even the 1920s, war and destruction happened as in the late 20th or early 21st Century. Is this the ways of Humankind – forever the strong bullying the weak ?

    Fortunately, due to our wise and caring Governments 1957-2003, as led by the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, our beloved Malaysia could maintain and sustain Peace, Harmony and Prosperity from 1957 to 2003.

    Their predecessors,, the 2 Prime Ministers during 2004 to 2018 brought our beloved Malaysia down to her knees and her Rakyat suffered from total neglect as regards jobs, better salaries, low cost of living, affordable homes, and a better life style for their children and themselves. This lasted 14 years.

    Our beloved Malaysia was on the cusp of total disarray and chaos like any Third World country because the TPPA the Malaysia/Malays Killer/SME was signed by the last BN Prime Minister but not ratified. Treachery by ignoring our Sovereignty and National Interest abound 2004-2018.

    The Rakyat even some to this very day, did not believe that the top Leadership could cheat them en masse. This did happen in our beloved Malaysia of all places by people from good backgrounds, rich and apparently educated.

    That was yesterday. And today is today as one UMNO Tan Sri once told me.

    Today’s headline, thus :-

    ‘ MALAYSIA TO ENTER 10 NEW HALAL MARKETS VIA CHINA’S OBOR INITIATIVES. ”

    This viable and profitable avenue of export of halal products should have been promoted as long ago as 2004.

    But with all the non-governmental activity going on at the top then, who had the time, inclination and energy to think about what was best for the Rakyat like setting up factories producing halal products for export ?

    This left a gap of 14 years of inaction. 14 years of loss revenue, jobs for the Rakyat and experience in overseas markets. For the many who work hard for a living, this is a suffering difficult to bear UNLIKE THOSE WHO JUST STEAL FROM THE RAKYAT’S GOVERNMENT COFFERS via direct means or the Corrupt GLCs.

    Malaysia is the best country to produce halal goods being a Muslim country with a majority of Muslim inhabitants through exporting such goods World-wide. Already there are so many brands available which one can see at the supermarkets.

    The lack of oomph, drive and energy must rest at the top Governmental Leadership 2004-2018. This resulted in the absence of any tangible halal exports overseas.

    A few Comments ago I suggested that FELDA is the best candidate to go into production of halal products in a big way. Of course, its plantations have to be restructured sooner or later after the entity had been financially destroyed with a RM 14 Billion debt by crooks.

    FELDA may own farms in Australia and New Zealand and transport the products via their own ships for processing in factories located at the ports. And also stick strictly to the oil palm plantations which should be managed strictly as plantations and not as saving banks for crooks. This should be the future success story of FELDA.

    2. ” EXCELLENT GRADES FAIL STUDENT ”

    This is a perennial story which should not be permitted to appear in the media if a caring incumbent Government cares about its Rakyat. This should not happen at all. All countries educate all their citizens these days – right up to the Tertiary Stage if possible. Failing a student at exams is not the norm in all cases unlike 70 years ago when scholarships and places were difficult to come by.

    EDUCATION SHOULD NOT BE POLITICISED ANYWHERE ON THIS GLOBE.

    ” SIMPLY SENSATIONAL.” or ” FORMER WUSHU CHAMP TO TRAIN NATIONAL SQUAD ” or ” WONDER WOMEN ”

    These headlines reflect the meritocratic achievements of our sports men and women.

    Malaysia has a long history in the sporting World since winning the Silver Medal at hockey in Melbourne in 1956.

    We were always at the top in World class badminton mixing with the Danes and the Americans in the 1940s and the 1950s at the All England and the Thomas Cup series. But we lost for the first time to Indonesia in 1959 when our No 1 player went night clubbing the night before meeting Ferry Sonneville of Indonesia in the Thomas Cup event in Kuala Lumpur. How many Malaysians know this ?

    I have been watching Malaysians playing badminton at World Class events as long as I can remember. Sometimes, I switched off the TV in disgust knowing the Malaysians will lose in the third and final set because THEY WERE UNFIT AND LACKED STAMINA OR MIND-SET TOO !

    For example, our Malaysian Champion at the 2010 London Olympics lost in the 3rd set after leading 19-17 over Lin Dan. I could only interpret this failure to the lack of fitness which meant lack of oxygen going to his brain cells. I have never seen an unfit Chinese player to this day.

    Another example I could observe is the fitness of the China No. 1 singles player Shiqui against Japan’s World’a No.1 Momota at the Sudirman Cup Finals. I thought Momota would have won hands down. But it was the fitness of Shiqui which prevailed.

    Sports in Malaysia is an activity much loved by the Rakyat. Generations of politicians graced its pantheons without contributing much too it.

    I observed most sports were undertaken by its participants when they were in school. Their talents were what brought them into the limelight of the sporting associations.

    But having talent is not sufficient to produce Regional or World Class performance these days. Our sportsmen and women need something much more. The United States adopted a professional and scientific approach in all sports immediately after World War 2 with the Communist countries not far behind.

    There should be a professional and scientific approach like :-

    1 The athlete with the RIGHT MIND SET. This has also been emphasised by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad recently for all activities.

    2. Physical fitness by ingesting the right type of nutritious foods to build up energy – a programme which is formulated by a SPORTS MEDICINE ACADEMY. I have heard whispers about a Sports Medicine Academy headed by our famous Tan Sri Dato Dr sprinter. But no more.

    3. Talent in sports is a must in all sports men and women. THIS IS WHERE OUR SPORTS ASSOCIATIONS HAVE BEEN MISLED by talented sportsmen or women WITHOUT MINDSET AND FITNESS.

    4. Motivation by good rewards and future jobs for a retired sports man or woman is a must. China puts her retired athletes as Sports Educators in places of education all over the country. Our country must care for those who put her in Glory in sports, through out their lives with jobs, housing, scholarships etc.

    5. The sports men and women of many countries especially the United States have not been AMATEURS for decades. Our beloved Malaysia must treat ALL SPORTS MEN AND WOMEN AS PROFESSIONALS with pay, rewards and assist them accordingly.

    6. Dead wood like those in the geriatric Olympic Council of Malaysia should be discarded because FOR OVER 40 YEARS THEY WERE TOO LAZY TO GET SQUASH RECOGNISED AS AN OLYMPIC SPORT EVEN THOUGH SQUASH WAS IN EXISTENCE FOR OVER 100 YEARS.

    Malsysia lost by DEFAULT at least 4 GOLD OLYMPIC MEDALS AND MANY SILVER AND BRONZE BY THESE FOLKS SITTING ON THEIR BACKSIDES FOR OVER 40 YEARS DOING NOTHING BUT TOURING ! Even recent sports like Moguls is an Olympic Sport.

    7. To show the importance of PUBLICITY THROUGH SPORTS, Lee Kuan Yew bought a few 4th rate Chinese sports men and women in table tennis, shooting, badminton, etc from China at the turn of the 21st Century in his zeal to be No. 1 of ASEAN sports. Amongst ASEAN circles these were known as the Great Wall of China. Malaysia need not buy talent. We have plenty.

    8. A MINISTER CHAIRING THE OLYMPIC COUNCIL OF MALAYSIA IS A MUST BECAUSE THE FOLKS THERE TREATED IT AS A FREE TOURING AGENCY EVERY OLYMPICS. All Sports are important to Malaysia for UNITY, HARMONY AND TEAM WORK. Tun Abdul Razak chaired the Olympic Council of Malaysia when he was DPM and PM. Maybe the Minister for Youth, Culture and Sports is the right person.

    9. In 1965, Tun Abdul Razak suggested I should open up the Selangor Shooting Association controlled by 33 Hakkas. Through the ideas which I mentioned above, Malaysia WON THE ASIAN GAMES GOLD MEDAL FOR TRAP SHOOTING IN TEHERAN IN 1972 ! The Selangor Shooting Association now has 2,000 members and RM 2 Million in its kitty.

    MALAYSIA HAS PLENTY OF SPORTING TALENT. FOR THE FIRST TIME, HOPEFULLY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNEMNT OF THE OLD AND THE YOUNG, THE GOOD AND THE GREAT RECOGNISES SPORTING ACTIVITY IF PROPERLY NURTURED WILL PRODUCE MANY MORE WORLD CLASS SPORTS MEN AND WOMEN like Nicolle David, Lee Chong Wei, Dhabitah, Shalin, Tan Eng Yueh,, Keirin cyclist Ghani etc.

    In Sports, no sacrifice, no training, no pain, no Medals.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Even Lee Kuan Yew recognised that his tiny State could obtain the Widest Publicity through Sports by buying 4th rate Chinese athletes to gain CHEAP LEVERAGE !

    It is reported in the media that at least 45 NGOs petitioned your goodself to scrap the 3 Islands Reclamation of Penang. This is timely and fortuitous. For the following reasons, thus :-

    1 LEE KUAN YEW NEVER BORROWED A SINGLE CENT TO MODERNISE SINGAPORE. Singapore is not Penang. Penang is not Singapore.

    2. THE PENANG MASTER PLAN IS OUT OF DATE DUE TO THE COMPLETE CHANGE OF POLITICAL CIRCUMSTANCES SINCE 2008 WHICH MAY NOW TURN PENANG INTO THE WORLD’S FINEST RESORT FOR HOLIDAY AND LEISURE WITH NEW PROPOSALS WHICH ARE CHEAP, FAST DELIVERY, EASY TO DO AND UNDERSTAND, AND NON-CONTROVERSIAL.

    3. PENANG ACTUALLY HAS 3 GOLDMINES eg. I) OLD AIRPORT. ii) OLD GEORGE TOWN iii) BUTTERWORTH AIRFIELD. Why waste billions of ringgits by throwing good money into the sea ?

    The New Proposals which will bring IMMEDIATE BENEFITS TO THE SUPPORTERS OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT AND THE RAKYAT WITHOUT CONTROVERSY ARE AS FOLLOWS :-

    1. Scrap the 3 Island Reclamation Project. Scrap the old Bayan Lepas Airport. Scrap the Highway. Scrap the Tunnel. Scrap the Butterworth Airport and shift to Kulim. Scrap the Quit Rent and Assessment for the Old George Town.

    2. Turn the Old Bayan Lepas Airport into the World’s Finest Tropical City with the southern shore into a sandy beach, Pulau Jerejak flattened with the straits filled into a small airport for domestic and private flights together with a Terminal with shopping for 4 luxury liners. Sg Keluang delineates the northern border with the foothills the western border for low cost and affordable housing.

    3. Turn the Highway into a Japanese style country rail vide CNA Saturdays 7 pm. from Tanjong Bungah via the foothills, New George Town, Kulim, Butterworth and Sg Patani.

    4. Connect New George Town and Kulim by fast train.

    5. All Government Offices shift to New George Town.

    6. Gentrify Old George Town. Sewerage modernised and flood mitigation schemes placed underground wherever possible. Trams and pedestrian walks introduced. The aim is to create VALUE IN OLD GEORGE TOWN.

    7. Up grade the Penang Ferry which will now serve Langkawi , Kedah, Perak and Lumut.

    8. KOMTAR turn into a Budget and a 4 star hotel.

    LIKE THIS THE SUPPORTERS OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT AND THE RAKYAT BENEFIT IMMEDIATELY WITH THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT TO RULE FOR THE NEXT 60 YEARS. WITH NO BILLION RINGGITS DEBT.

    The State Government’s negotiating skills with the Federal Government may extract the most out via the construction of the transport links, a viable deal for the Old Bayan Lepas land, subsidies for sewerage and flood mitigation, water from Kedah etc. IF PROPERLY DONE THE STATE GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS IN ITS COFFERS AS ONE OF THE RICHEST STATE IN THE COUNTRY WITHOUT DEBT.

    By chance, PENANG IS NOW ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT COMPONENTS OF THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT NORTHERN REGION WITH KEDAH, PERLIS, KELANTAN, TRENGGANU AND PERAK WHICK WILL SNOWBALL THE PENINSULA TO SABAH AND SARAWAK. The classical Malaysain Way to create Wealth WITHOUT NEGATIVE CONNOTATIONS !

    KULIM must jive with the other components to make the sum greater than the whole. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    For TWIN PEAKS. We Malaysians have many common traits and relationships. I always said in our country either we are related or close friends. We cannot runaway very far.

    I see you are a Man of integrity, courage and cares for our beloved Malaysia like all of us here in this distinguished Blog. I like the way you express yourself in plain simple terms. I have another late relative by the name of Shelley Yap, a lawyer, in Kota Kinabalu which you might have known many years ago.

    It is good, very good our beloved Malaysia has many citizens like you who form the real ballast which stabilizes our Malaysian Society. How lucky you and your family are to live, work and enjoy in a beautiful place like Sabah especially Kota Kinabalu. I know Kota Kinabalu well and wished many a time to live there too.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    Mubarakchan, thank you for your kind words, first of all.
    I am not someone of any seniority as I had never held a position in government. I am strictly private sector person. My only political (if you can call it that) “experience” was standing as an independent candidate at the 2004 general elections when I was 35 years old, in my family constituency. I was thrashed mercilessly by the BN machinery (I remembered that my ‘campaign team’ was in a boat – yes, some parts of Sabah still only accessible this way.. passing us were about two dozen BN boats). So I decided then that there was no way anyone can beat that! Other members of our extended family had better luck in politics.. rising to a past CM of Sabah and a past Governor too. My own father was DCM under TS Harris of Berjaya government.
    Like you, I simply like talking politics even at a coffee shop. And writing about it, contributing ideas, is even better. I hope that if a few federal ministers read this blog, that they may want to consider these ideas in their future plans. I am just happy to contribute for our country’s future, in any manner possible. Just like any other responsible citizen.

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS. As an adjunct to my previous Comment on the TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER, this EXERCISE IN FUTILITY both for Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore very clearly exposed the sense of DE’JA VU which coloured his thinking arising from the 1962 Water Agreement with only a one paragraph Agreement probably made in Singapore. This finished off our beloved Malaysia by its SIMPLICITY.

    But with the LIFE-SAVER FOR SINGAPORE, the TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER, Lee Kuan Yew wrapped THIS SIMPLICITY OF COMPROMISING THE RULERS OF THE DAY IN MALAYSIA with 50 volumes of the substantive Agreement abetted by the treasonous Malaysian Civil Servants in attendance.

    Why did the negotiations take so long – 7 years in secret places ?

    First, the reason was that Lee Kuan Yew knew he had a hot potato in his hands. If it was achieved by him in a sneaky way like the 1962 Water Agreement. THE TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER would have been his ultimate CROWNING GLORY for his INHERITORS AND SINGAPORE!

    Second, the negotiations took so long because THE TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER ONLY BENEFITS SINGAPORE ALONE in simple terms. BUT FOR THE REST IT WAS LIKE DRAGGING AN OX TO DRINK WATER because Singapore did her best efforts politically and diplomatically behind the scenes to FORCE THE ISSUE IN SINGAPORE’S FAVOUR. The reality is that all the countries do no REQUIRE THE TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER especially the great United States but only desperate SINGAPORE.

    This fact also shows that Lee Kuan Yew’s wiles and skills have limitations in the eyes of those who would not be fooled by him with his magic shows and white rabbits.

    Third, after President Trump’s audacious act of tearing up the TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA MALAYS SME KILLER, Singapore immediately went behind the scenes TO FAN UP HER NEAREST AND DEAREST EBING JAPAN, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND TO REVIVE THE TPPA AS THE CPTPP which is now touted as WORKABLE WITHOUT THE GREAT UNITED STATES AND HER MARKETS.

    Fourth, ‘ PER ARDUA AD ASTRA ‘ was the Policy taken by Lee Kuan Yew for Singapore throughout his PUBLIC LIFE. Somewhat like ICARUS AND THE SUN. Or in colloquial terms, ‘ YOU PAY WHAT YOU GET ‘.

    Fifth, at the end of the DAY, Lee Kuan Yew got the rocks, the 25 miles of KTM steel rails and property, the low-hanging fruits like the true blue UMNO NSTP Chair, the Avenue, red hot relationships in private retreats, the right to publish a book to denigrate our beloved Malaysia and other minor gains of no consequence.

    All achieved without firing a single bullet to conquer our beloved Malaysia which Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs forgot the Royal Malay Regiments exist ! Then our beloved Malaysia might as well only keep the Royal Malay Regiments ceremonial guards. !

    IN REAL TERMS, SINGAPORE GOT NOTHING FOR ALL HER EFFORTS TO OVER RIDE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    Sixth, at the end of the Day, our beloved Malaysia under the Premiership of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side, overnight became ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FOUR SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA since 9 May 2018.

    Seventh, MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    From 1959-2015, Lee Kuan Yew took a CONFRONTATIONAL STANCE WHEN DEALING WITH MALAYSIA. He would have GAINED MUCH IF HE HAD TREATED ALL AS NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS AND DID NOT PUFFED UP HIMSELF AS SOMEONE, SPECIAL, EXCLUSIVE AND SACROSANCT.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. In you we trust. Keep smiling.

  44. mubarakchan May 24,2019 8:37 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I daresay you are a person of some seniority and deserves recognition as such with all due respect.

    Your comments are to the point and factual which I accept wholeheartedly. The issues you mentioned are relevant to the present day.

    BUT THERE ARE MUCH BIGGER ISSUES WHICH WOULD HAVE KILLED OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA DUE TO EITHER CORRUPTION OR SELF-SERVING AND DEFINITELY NOT SHEER HAPPENSTANCE.

    One issue is the Lee Kuan Yew Creation of the TPPA/CPTPP/Malaysia, Malays, SME Killer. And my appearance in this distinguished Blog was sheer happenstance. Let me relate to you TWIN PEAKS my friend how it all began.

    After the retirement of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in October 2003, the new Administration took over led by a Prime Minister who some alleged was once a secretary of the NOC 1969-1971. No problem.

    Then things were began to go awry.

    It was alleged there were 4th Floor boys who ruled the not only the Government but the whole country including Sabah as well. Then from Singapore, the folks there were boasting of looking for low hanging fruits in Malaysia.

    To add to the mix, since Merdeka, 47 years, no Malaysian Government went to The Hague to establish that Malaysia owned Pulau Batu Puteh because she already owned it.

    But this Government after 2003 did and also engaged the oldest emeritus Professor from Cambridge, my contemporary ! Singapore boasted they engaged the best International Law lawyer in the World. Right TWIN PEAKS ? It takes two to tango.

    One must assume definitely there was no hanky-panky between heads of state. To rub salt into the wound, the Singaporean elites published a book which denigrated Malaysia even more ! Malaysia lost after hundreds of years of owning Pulau Batu Puteh.

    Suddenly, one fine day, the UN Reported that a Malaysian picked up 1,000,000 barrels of sanctioned oil from hard-fisted Saddam Hussein. When the PM was asked what happened, it was alleged he could not remember what he signed.

    To top off the whole absurd governing practice, A PAP CADRE WAS APPOINTED THE CHIEF EDITOR OF THE UMNO OWNED NSTP. Not only that, this junior Singaporean fellow was given a lush APACHE CONTRACT BY SIME DARBY to make him comfortable in the hot and humid Ulus which was KL !

    And famished Singaporeans were running up and down THE AVENUE with the doors of the Khazanah wide opened for them to pluck the low hanging fruits belonging to the Rakyat !

    NO WONDER THE SINGAPOREANS ALWAYS LOOK DOWN ON THE MALAYSIANS WHEN THEY COULD CONQUER OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WITHOUT A SINGLE BULLET.

    This nonsense lasted 2004-2009 NOT INCLUDING THE ENGLISH UPPER CLASS SAILING JAUNTS EVERY DECEMBER OFF THE EAST COAST, PERTH, JET-LAG, GOLF ETC. The cognoscenti were beating their chests and gnawing their teeth with the deep knowledge that an emerging nation like our beloved Malaysia must be run efficiently and professionally, and should not be managed by a bunch of PLAYBOYS. It Is not only a 25 hour 8 day week for the Prime Minister of Malaysia but also it is a very much HANDS ON JOB. But the FREE-WHEELING METHOD OR GOVERN BY AUTO-PILOT WAS INTRODUCED DURING THIS PERIOD 2004-2009. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, THE PRIME MINISTER WAS ALSO THE FINANCE MINISTER.

    IT WAS AT THIS JUNCTURE SINCE 1984 THAT I VISITED OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WHO SUGGESTED THAT I DO SOME WRITING. WHAT BETTER SUBJECT THAN LEE KUAN YEW WHO CREATED AN IMAGE OF HIS VERY OWN with so many of the Malaysian Chinese and a few UMNO Malays brainwashed accordingly.

    But Lee Kuan Yew and his cohorts were clapping their hands with glee.

    With the ASCENSION OF THE NEXT PRIME MINISTER 2010-2018, Lee Kuan Yew could thank his lucky stars that he was born in Heaven because Obama had just accepted Lee Kuan Yew’s Creation .’ The Free Trade Scheme ‘ which Obama called it his very own as THE TPPA/CPTPP/MALAYSIA /MALAYS/ SME KILLER.

    This act was underlined by the June 2009 visit of Lee Kuan Yew at the age of 85 on the pretext of visiting his digits, cohorts, spies, treacherous Civil Servants, MCA leader in red mandarin silks, a lady off Jalan Duta, KL to have fine English tea, and on his way to the Airport, a tongue in the cheek perfunctory courtesy call on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to show his TEMPORAL POWER.

    The ex-Minister, the ex-Head of MTI (whose spouse was alleged to be a senior Singaporean journalist based in KL in a profession countries like Russia, China, Iran, Egypt, North Korea, Myanmar love to jail) the President of the SMEs and of course the ex-PM who signed the TPPA, were all in full support WITHOUT ANY DUE CONSIDERATION FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. It would have been a commitment worst than BREXIT. Malaysia would have been a slave Colony of Singapore signed by her own hands. At this point, the Singaporeans have got our beloved Malaysia between a rock and a hard place. How to miss ?

    What is the TPPA ?

    When Singapore’s VERY PROFITABLE QUESTIONALBE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES WHICH WERE CONDONED BY UNCLE SAM DURING THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 WERE GRABBED ( Uncle Sam’s blessing ) BY THE BRICS BEING BRAZIL, RUSSIA, INDIA, CHINA, SOUTH AFRICA, Singapore lost her MAGIC WAND OR MOJO TO MAKE MONEY EX-GRATIS.

    By 2002, Singapore had her first recession and unemployment.

    Desperately, Lee Kuan Yew conjured 4 INITIATIVES, TEMASEK (earlier), FT IMPORTS, 2 CASINOS AND HIS FREE TRADE SCHEME which was a simple device to BREAKDOWN THE TARIFF WALL OF MALAYSIA AGAINST SINGAPORE GOODS.

    Its simplicity is just BY COMPROMISING THE RULERS OF THE DAY IN MALAYSIA BY WHATEVER MEANS WORKABLE AT ALL COSTS. He succeeded but not quite complete WITHOUT RATIFICATION BY THE DEWAN RAKYAT.

    With the TPPA, not only will the doors of Malaysia are wide-opened to Singaporean labelled or re-labelled goods, the huge inflow will KILL OFF ALL THE MALAYSIAN SMEs causing unemployment, riots, chaos and the blame falls on the incumbent Government of the day.

    What did the proponents say about the TPPA ?

    They said the TPPA will bring us good corporate governance, our exports to the US will increase (only soft products like condoms) and our bio-industry will gain acceptance in 20 years time.

    BUT THESE TREASONOUS FOLK SUPPORTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE SME WHO WAS ENNOBLED AFTER THIS DID NOT TELL THE RAKYAT THAT THE WHOLE COUNTRY WOULD BE IN CHAOS IMMEDIATELY.

    This is confirmed by a boastful Singapore Business Times Headline in January 2017 that the TPPA WILL SAVE SINGAPORE S$ 1 BILLION MINIMUM WHICH MEANS MALAYSIA WILL LOSE ANNUALLY A MINIMUM OF RM 3 BILLION.

    The TPPA?CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays/SME/Killer is the ultimate weapon created by Lee Kuan Yew with its 50 volumes of small print TO LOCK IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS HIS HERITAGE AND LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS. His constant dream of Malaysia as Singapore’s NIRVANA of riches and prosperity.

    This dream was a dangerous distraction and wasted time and money as it could now be discerned. Overnight, Malaysia became one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    But it was not to be.

    1. On 2 January 2017, President Trump TORE UP THE TPPA

    2. On 9 May 2018, the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs was ousted by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    3. From mid-2018, the Singaporean media began to intensify its open remarks on the Prime Minister only. I can only interpret as a fact that for the Singaporeans, the ratification of the TPPA/CPPTP by the victorious Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs, would have been like drinking THE ELIXIR OF LIFE. Now they realise ‘there is many a slip, ‘twixt the cup and the lips’.

    Hence, the Singaporeans deep frustration and angst that THE FUTURE FOR THEM NOW IS BLEAK, VERY BLEAK because they threw all into the fray AND ENDED UP WITH NOTHING !

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    There is no doubt at all that God and our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad saved OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA FROM CERTAIN DEATH AS A SLAVE COLONY OF SINGAPORE VIA THE TPPA.

    For this reason I have said ‘IN YOU WE TRUST’ when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad assumed his RESPONSIBILITIES A SECOND TIME ROUND – with a beautiful hindsight after surviving the tons of the finest vitriol poured on him 2004-2016 by the detractors, naysayers and troublemakers, now he has no more US$ 5 Million Stradivarius violins, bank collecting or padding Proton wheel rims CLOSEST AIDES TO CREATE THEIR SCANDALS.

    All these are confirmed by his admission that he made some mistakes. ‘ TO ERR IS HUMAN, TO FORGIVE DIVINE.’

    It has always my intention to furnish the true facts about Singapore because of the brain-washing efforts adopted by Lee Kuan Yew from the very beginning of his PUBLIC LIFE IN 1959 on UNSUSPECTING AND INNOCENT MALAYSIANS. What I provided was a form of DE-NAZIFICATION OF LEE KUAN YEW. Actually, the Americans gave up when they found ALL GERMANS WERE NAZIS DURING WORLD WAR TWO !.

    Without the true facts we will NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH.

    Please vide http://www.chedet.cc.org ‘Malaysia according to Kuan ‘ Archives. September 2010.

    HISTORY IS THE FINEST ARBITER OF THE TRUTH, TWIN PEAKS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Malaysia with the TPPA would be much worse than Britain in EU which is now trying to EXIT because the TPPA was specially crafted by Lee Kuan Yew to enslave Malaysia as a SLAVE COLONY ADMINISTERED BY CORRUPT DIGITS UNDER HIS OR SINGAPORE’S CONTROL. In you we trust. Keep smiling

    So, despite my view on China and Chinese companies, you have to salute them.
    Companies like Huawei are cutting edge in 5G. It has no competition except Samsung and ZTE in Asia. Even the Japanese are sweating. Their focus on high tech really pays off. They have got image problem, the Chinese, because of their worldview. But how they take care of themselves long term is text book study for others.

    Malaysia has a small domestic market, thus it needs to compete for the global market to advance its economy. It is like the pyramid.. if Malaysia is at the top of the global production chain, it has very few competitors. Life will be easier and the gains are faster and greater.
    Whereas, if we remain as an agricultural/extractive country, less capital investment needed for sure… but actually life will be so hard due to greater competition, and the consequent gains are slower and smaller… bottom of the pyramid.
    That’s the way I see things.. the difference between the rich and poor countries.. in the mindset.

  47. twinpeaks May 24,2019 11:14 AM

    I agree, Mubarakchan.

    I would just add that if Malaysia Inc. focuses on the following three items, it will grow its economy very fast and everyone will benefit.
    1) Productivity.. and continuously raising it via industries still new to the world (thus, no competition and easier/faster growth).
    2) Saving.. what industries earned can be saved for re-investment without deficit-spending. Spend what is already earned. The gold standard.
    3) Assets.. re-invested saving to further realise productivity gains, to outsmart regional/global competitors and thus ready to receive global FDIs in latest, high-yielding industries.

    These are interesting times which call for Leadership like your kind, brilliant and courageous with a MINDSET which expands beyond the limits of your MIND unlike those CASH IS KING fellows whose neuro-activity is strictly confined within the limits of their skulls.

    Not long ago, we all thought the World was an orderly and civil place. Where Kings behave like kings. Presidents behave like presidents. Prime Ministers behave like prime ministers.

    Lo and Behold ! We have found ourselves like vestal virgins or naïve pundits when one President after another was charged with CORRUPTIOM and ended up in jail like in South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Peru and many other places if the Law can catch hold of them.

    How the World has changed !

    Today’s headlines tell us at a glance the easing of EXPORTS from island nations like Japan and Singapore. Soon the EXPORTS from the Asian continental Powers like India and China will drop as well.

    These countries form part of the BRICS which enjoyed all that could be exploited in Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel, ‘ Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights’ (All anathema to Singapore) so proudly announced by Uncle Sam at the cusp of victory over the Communist World in 1990 after the ending of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    Singapore was hurt very badly after the end of the Cold War 1948-1989 when her very profitable QUESTIONABLE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 WERE GRABBED FROM HER BY THE BRICS with the blessing of Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel.

    And now in 2019, with astonishment, we see Uncle Sam wants to take back what he had given in 1990 through his hegemonic spiel, ‘ Globaiization. Free Trade, Human Rights ‘ after finding out that he is the SOLE LOSER.

    As the saying goes, ‘The Americans forget easily. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget.’

    With a beautiful hindsight, Singapore is the sole casualty of the United States winning the Cold War 1948-1989.

    The negative effects from Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel erupted at the turn of the 21st Century for Singapore.

    Not only that from a uni-polar and exclusive World in the QUESTIONABLE AND THE UNMENTIONABLE TRADES CONDONED BY UNCLE SAM DURING THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 which was extremely profitable, Singapore was literally thrown overnight into competition in NORMAL trades with the whole multi-polar World.

    Hence, Singapore facing the odds found it difficult to breach the 3% GDP from 2002-2019 – 17 years. It was a fizzy 7% GDP in the 1970s and the 1980s when Singapore was a Third World country. But as a First World country now, she could not return to those sparkling GDPs of the Cold War 1948-1989 in the face of unexpected turmoil all round.

    That was Singapore.

    What about Malaysia ? Malaysia has a huge land mass, good inhabitants and bountiful natural resources. What is bugging us now ?

    IT IS THE HUGE THEFT OF OVER RM 1.5 TRILLION WHICH WAS SIPHONED OUT OF MALAYSIA BETWEEN 2002-2018. Vide UN, World Bank, IMF Reports.

    The Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs were responsible for this huge loss of money from the Malaysian financial system.

    How to re-coup ? Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 100 strokes of the rotan.

    Fortunately, our beloved Malaysia has the Will of the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    And the assets which may be turned into valuable assets to replace the monetary void, are :-

    1. THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE NEW PROPOSALS FOR PENANG. This is the nexus for Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan, Trengganu and Perak. The fall-out from here should reach Sabah and Sarawak via the rest of the Peninsula.

    2. Penang has 3 pieces of valuable land which maybe commercialised and improved upon to generate billions of ringgits immediately thus :-

    i) Turn the old Bayan Lepas Airport into the NEW GEORGETOWN, the World’s Finest tropical city.

    ii) Turn the Butterworth Air Base for commercial purposes and mixed development. Transfer the Air Base to the Kulim International Airport which should have 2 runways to begin with and a third later.

    111) Restore the Old George Town and up-grade all public utilities.

    iv) Let the Federal Government assists in building the double track Japanese style rail replacing the Highway and all the bridges and transport linkages between Penang and Kulim.

    v) Scrap the 3 islands reclamation, the Highway and the Tunnel

    vi) LEE KUAN YEW NEVER BORROWED A SINGLE CENT TO DEVELOP PRESENT DAY SINGAPORE EVEN THOUGH HE HAD THE WHEREWITHAL And Singapore is not Penang. Penang is not Singapore. And now Penang wants to borrow billions and billions of ringgits with no hope of a guaranteed repayment.

    3. Amalgamate Subang, Sunway and Petaling Jaya into a CITY to compete with Kuala Lumpur. With enhance property values, factories will move out to the cheaper areas which in turn are developed by the factories. Two tropical slums await eg. Lembah Beringin and Bukit Beruntong. Even Jelebu by the latest reckoning.

    Such creation of WEALTH which should dwarf the monetary void left by the theft of money from the country’s system, would be extremely useful in these times of need.

    And with the return of the stolen money eventually, this will be the ICING ON THE CAKE !

    However, there are storm clouds which appeared only recently in the horizon being the U.S China Trade War and Brexit.

    Even though there are some pundits who think Malaysia may benefit, I am of the opinion that this might not happen because we are suppliers of goods to Asian countries like China which exports to America. Hence, we must do whatever we can in anticipation of unexpected negative effects on our economy.

    Only TOURISM, FDI AND SME EXPORTS SEEM TO BE WITHIN MALAYSIA’S WILL TO DO MORE. Petroleum, palm oil and commodities prices belong to the World’s marketplace for pricing.

    AGAIN WE FACE UP TO TOURISM AS THE GAME CHANGER TO BRING IN THE FOREX.

    It is good the Minister of Tourism now has a grasp of things like the Travel Agents must make money as the front line promoter of Tourism.

    It is good our ringgit is not expensive. Our superb hotels could be the most reasonable in the World.

    ALL HOTEL CHAINS AND AIRLINES SHOULD BE PUSHED BY THE TOURISM BOARD TO PROMOTE MALAYSIA AS THE FINEST AND CHEAPEST HOLIDAY DESTINATION IN THE WORLD TODAY. Not the other way round. The harder Malaysia works on TOURISM, the more FOREX we get.

    Malaysia should be attractive to the FDIs again. The Ministry of Trade and Industry knows this subject like the palms of their hands.

    And the SMEs (with the ennobled President of their Association in favour of the Lee Kuan Yew Creation TPPA/CPTPP, the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer), should be given all the financial assistance required, by the Government.

    THIS SME ENNOBLED PRESIDENT SHOULD THANK HIS LUCKY STARS THAT HE SUPPORTED THE SIGNED LEE KUAN YEW CREATION TPPA/CPTPP/ THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER WHICH WAS ONLY SIGNED AND NOT RATIFIED.

    If our beloved brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team did not WIN on 9 May 2018, this SME ennobled President would have kissed his lucky stars goodbye when all the SMEs collapsed under him due to the huge flood of tariff free Singapore labelled goods, giving rise to chaos and bankruptcies.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling.

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Strange. I know Sabah very well. My son-in-law is a Kadazan from Kota Kinabalu. My sister-in-law is from Sandakan. My distant relative is the fellow whose daughter was supposed to be Australia’s Foreign Minister. She is very correct and upright by warning her relatives not to disturb her when she was the Minister of Finance.

    I think Sabah is one of the most beautiful places in the World. Hence, the Chinese are now going there in droves. I once asked a Hong Kong tourist why he did not visit Bangkok. His reply while he was holding two full plates of breakfast, was ‘ I am tired of Bangkok. I want to visit a place which is clean and fresh.’. I also observed most Sabahans are shy to say ‘NO !’

    However, on the question of optimism concerning the future of our beloved Malaysia, if our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is not born an optimist like myself, I would not have said ‘ In you we trust.’ Why ?

    TWIN PEAKS, SINCE 9 MAY 2018, BECAUSE OF OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD, OVERNIGHT OUR BELOVED MALSYIA BECAME ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, MALAYSIA. Arising from the ashes too. Why ?

    Malaysia is very important to the World because with a stable and incorruptible Government, a strategic geographical location, a country with 3 diverse peoples from ancient civilizations and all, and full of bountiful resources which Britain, Japan, and Switzerland lack and cannot compare, herein lies her inherent and now recognised importance.

    With the added importance of the Belt and Road of China, the Kulim International Airport and the Northern Region and eventually the Isthmus of Kra Canal to come in the near future. Where else but Malaysia ?

    The pitfalls which Malaysia encountered during the Dark Ages 2004-2018, I expected BUT NOT THE TOTAL RAPE OF A COUNTRY BY ITS TOP LEADERSHIP LIKE SOUTH AMERICA AND AFRICA COMBINED.

    Nevertheless, our beloved Malaysia will recover sooner than later with our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I hope by now you would have noticed that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, DSAI, Tun Daim, Dato Seri Kadir, myself and others promote that ALL MALAYSIANS SHOULD BE RICH UNLIKE PRESIDENT BONGO OF THE CONGO WHERE PRESIDENT BONGO OWNS ALL THE DIAMONDS AND HIS PEOPLE DIRT POOR. In fact, President Bongo is as poor as his people. Here are the cogent reasons :-

    1. WHEN EVERY ONE IS RICH, OUR OWN ASSETS HAVE NOT ONLY VALUE BUT ALSO A HIGHER VALUE BECAUSE VALUES OF ASSETS ARE BASED ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND. President Bongo’s diamonds are just a heap of glass with NO DEMAND.

    2. WHEN MONEY IS STOLEN OUT OF THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM LIKE DURING THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND THE GLCs 2004-2018. THE MONEY HAS LEFT THE MALAYSIAN MONETARY SYSTEM FOR GOOD. Vide. UN. World Bank, IMF Reports. No money in our System how can people have opportunities to be rich ? Less money to share around.

    3. WE ALL BELIEVE IN THE VELOCITY OF MONEY.

    IN OTHER WORDS, IF THE ONE TRILLION RINGGITS HAD BEEN SWIRLING ROUND AND ROUND IN OUR MALAYSIAN MONETARY SYSTEM SINCE 2004 – 15 YEARS, CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MUCH WEALTH WOULD HAVE BEEN CREATED WITHOUT MONEY FOR ALL THE RAKYAT ? But it was not ONE TRILLION but ONE AND A HALF TRILLION WHICH NOW BENEFIT THE HOST COUNTRIES BY LYING IDLE IN THEIR BANKS. See the treasonous behaviour of those who stole MONEY OUT OF THE SYSTEM, TWIN PEAKS ? At home, our Rakyat are suffering for want of jobs, better salaries, goodies etc. due to a shortage of money.

    4. Now we have to start all over again and create WEALTH LIKE THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE NORTHERN REGION IN CONSONANCE WITH PENANG, KEDAH, PERLIS, KELANTAN, TRENGGANU AND PERAK.- AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE This is to be done and will be done, TWIN PEAKS ! We really have no other choice !

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS. You are a good man with good observations. But let me try to fill in the gaps with all due respect.

    1. In the year 2019, you mention it is difficult for the Bumiputras to get into Big Business.

    You raised this point which WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED IN 1972 FOR ALL MALAYSIANS TO DO BUSINESS ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD IN SUPPORT OF TUN ABDUL RAZAK’S NEP 1970-2000 THROUGH THE ACQUISITION OF SIME DARBY.

    And also to take the pressure off the NON-MALAYS WHO HAD BUSINESSES AT THE MATERIAL TIME. At this time, the British had 70% of the best assets, the Chinese had 25% of the 3rd rate and the MALAYS 2%.

    The Malays got Sime Darby when our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak died. I WAS SIDELINED AFTER THAT.

    My 1972 Concept to the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak was FOR SIME DARBY TO ACQUIRE USEFUL BUSINESS COMPANIES LIKE LIGHT ENGINEERING ETC IN BRITAIN AND GIVE THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR THE MALAYSIANS TO BE EMPLOYED AND LEARN ACCORDINGLY. NOT ONLY THAT, MY CONCEPT ALSO PROVIDED FOR SIME DARBY TO SET UP BUSINESSES WITH THE BUMIPUTRAS TO FURTHER BUMIPUTRA BUSINESSES. This Model would have obviated the busniess GAP which is now mentioned by you TWIN PEAKS in 2019 !

    But all these ideas were not bo be with the passing of the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak in 1975.

    I WAS SIDE-LINED AND SIME DARBY WAS NOT COMPLETELY MALAYSIANISED UNTIL 1982.

    In 1982, I suggested Sime Darby should control all the palm oil bunkering facilities in China.

    The Sime Darby Management set up a small one at Port Said, Egypt. Ten years later, all the bunkering facilities in China were owned by KLK, IOI and the Kuok Group. AND SIME DARBY APPEARED IN THE BACKSIDE OF CHINA IN 2011 WITH RM 2 BILLION ! Vide The Star 21 May 2019 ‘SIME RATIONALISES CHINA PORT OPS.’. Now Sime Darby is selling because it is found that they are in the WRONG business and in the backside of China ! Fantastic !

    With the Malaysian Management in control 1982 – 2019, SIME DARBY REVERTED BACK TO BE A FINE BRITISH COLONIAL TYPE OF TRADING COMPANY WITHOUT THE EMPIRE PREFERNCE AND NO RISKS.

    Just a trading agent, selling motorcars on behalf of others etc. Sponsoring Ocean Racing for 9 years in New Zealand where Sime Darby’s New Zealander Finance Director retired or be a Travel Agent with Sime Darby’s own ex-travel agent in Perth, Australia etc. instead OF TENDING TO ITS OWN INTERESTS AT HOME. And what did Sime Darby missed then and now, the Harrisons & Crossfield Group- 1979, Volvo – 2004, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini – 2005 , Proton – 1982, etc.

    But without a MODEL and after 2 bankruptcies, RM 1.2 Billion and RM 2.1 Billion in 1997 and 2010 respectively made by the SAME MANAGEMENT, SIME DARBY INVESTED RM 2 BILLION IN A WHARF FACILITY IN THE BACKSIDE OF CHINA IN 2011 ! Not forgetting that in 1982, Sime Darby would have controlled all and lease them back to our fellow Malaysians. Vide the following headline in The Star 21 May 2019, thus

    ” SIME RATIONALISES CHINA PORT OPS. ” Sime Darby now SELLS !

    The history of Sime Darby is just IT IS TOO RICH AND MANAGED BY EMPLOYEES WHO JUST DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BUSINESS WITH AN OVERVIEW OF THEIR SURROUNDING WORLD. If they spent so much time at golf or race courses, where have they got the time to do business which is a 25 hour occupation ?

    TONY FERNANDES. The airline he picked up for a song was owned by a Sarawakian in the 1990s which did not take off. Tony was SMART. KUDOS TO HIM. HE HAD THE MODEL AND THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THE MARKET. His recipe for SUCCESS. IDEAS MAKE MONEY. The Founder sold the airline to him.

    And your point on the Chinese being exclusive and made the MONEY with their families too.

    First, the Chinese were brought into Malaya to distribute British goods. The towns were set-up by the British at key points to distribute their goods by the Chinese. The Chinese took marginal profits at great risks because they have to give credit to points far away from the centre. That was the Chinese past.

    Then, the present ageing Chinese learnt the tricks of doing real business during the Japanese Occupation 1942-1945. This business knowledge or model, the Chinese experimented during the British Military Administration period 1945-1950 – AND APPLIED VERY SUCCESSFULLY THERAFTER. What this business knowledge is, you have to ask the Chinese.

    TWIN PEAKS IF YOU KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS, IT CANNOT BE EXCLUSIVE TO ONLY ONE TYPE OF PEOPLE.

    AND I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO DO BUSINESS IN SMALL MALAYSIA UNLESS YOU HAVE A MONOPOLY OR CREATE ONE YOURSELF like me. I only do corporate restructuring of ailing companies. So, I have to deal with white collar crooks all the time.

    Only 1% will be successful in business in Malaysia. Read my book, ‘THE CREATION OF MONEY WITHOUT MONEY.’

    You are right, TWIN PEAKS ! The MBA degrees are only to make a person a better MANAGER. Most successful entrepreneurs did not attend universities especially nowadays where these are places to socialize only. Now I say if a person has an inclination to do business, just a good Form 6 education will do and join the World of the Net to make MONEY.

    ANYONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW ENGLISH, PLEASE DO NOT DO BUSINESS.

    Hence our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad set out a good Policy for all.

    AND THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH SHOULD NOT BE POLITICISED. From 1947-2019, India never disturbed the English language but enhanced it. Her 350 Million English speaking Indians form the bulwark of her successful progress in both at home and the West today.

    The best the New and Incorruptible Government can do to help people to do business is to make sure all facilities to do business are available and EASILY ACCESSIBLE because business is full of risks.

    Hence, the presence of the Lee Kuan Yew created GLCs in our beloved Malaysia will always be an anomaly to our Malaysian Democratic Way of Life. Sounds funny, isn’t it ?

    Civil Servants paid the sky to do business to make money for the Rakyat ? The conventional Democratic WAY is for the Rakyat to make the MONEY for the Government to tax as REVENUE ! No wonder our beloved Malaysia got into such a horrible mess. Square pegs for square holes. Round pegs for round holes. Or never the Twain shall meet ?.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling.

    Noted with thanks on your last message.
    Just to add a little more.. I do not think that the British government had Malaya’s (or its colonial empire’s) socio-economic interests foremost when they centralised economic development from London. Rather, I posit that it was London’s aim to support the Sterling and the primacy of the Bank of England (and London as the world’s financial center) through the control of Malaya’s (and others’) financial assets.
    That was their goal, but we sort of benefited from it from the resulting financial discipline (but of course not when this imploded in 1969).

  56. twinpeaks May 22,2019 4:38 PM

    Ok.. before you rubbish what I’s just said about the ugly role of the colonial currency board system, let me just say that, sometimes (I really mean, sometimes), there is blessing in disguise to the path that was chosen by, or imposed on, our past governments. You have to remember that you can compare colonial-era Malaya with, for instance, South American countries, who practically had their own central banks and own currencies (but struggling to this day). But perhaps not with countries like Australia and Canada, who were in a similar boat like them (but economically miles ahead). Or.. how about Zimbabwe and Venezuela (..places that people are running away from)?
    My point is, simply having your own sovereign central bank did not or does not guarantee economic success and social stability. It takes much more than independence.

  57. mubarakchan May 22,2019 4:32 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I like you TWIN PEAKS. You are a gentleman who does not lie and is not a coward. You speak out based on what you know and not on your emotions whether racial or religious, somewhat like me, – So to speak, on fairness and justice for all.

    But in our beloved Malaysia because of the huge diversity of different communities we must be careful, tolerant and be aware of the feelings of others. As I said many times before, I learnt a long time ago when I was young, I found that speaking thoughtlessly without going through my frontal lobes was like shooting words out of my mouth with a gun. I had no hope of retrieving the words. After many embarrassments I learnt to keep my mouth tightly shut unlike some of the publicly paid YBs today.

    TWIN PEAKS GOOD MAN !

    First, on the British Colonial Currency Board which was established as a standard instrument to CONTROL EXPENDITURE THROUGHOUT THE BRITISH EMPIRE, first, this was the simplest and most effective way to control far away in distant lands from Whitehall, London. Second, Greek or Latin was the requisite requirement before even a prospect got a place at Oxford or Cambridge, the home of the British Empire elites. Why ?

    By the time the British built up their ‘the Sun never sets Empire’, they were aware of the endemic Corruption of the Roman Empire and its rulers which brought its decadence and FALL. Somewhat like the Dark Ages of our beloved Malaysia 2004-2018.

    To keep out Corruption with Control, the British created the British Colonial Currency Board FOR ALL THEIR COLONIES. You spend what you earn aptly describes its function.

    However, every one of the British Colonies then did not have wise guys like TDM, DSAI, TD etc.

    All of them literally began with no educated human resources in modern day terms even in India. The British left all colonies with the excellent Administrative System which was previously manned by them but were manned by local digits after Merdeka or Independence.

    Very fortunately, our beloved Malaya/Malaysia had honourable, good and honest Leaders from 1957-2003 like our Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Thereafter, the whole of the Government Administration was treated like the PM’s savings bank 2004-2018 as we can see in the media daily – every one had sticky fingers from top to bottom.

    During the period of the good Prime Ministers, our beloved Malaysia built up reserves in monetary terms with sensible infra-structure developments but the loss in human talents was inevitable and regrettable.

    The Bank Negara Malaysia was established in 1957 but its real functions as 1) Banker to the Government 2) Safeguards the currency 3) Issues the currency were BYPASSED OR OVER-RODE BY THE PRESENCE OF THE CURRENCY BOARD OF MALAYA, SINGAPORE, NORTH BORNEO, SARAWAK AND BRUNEI UNITL 1972 WHEN THE BOARD WAS DISSOLVED.

    Lee Kuan Yew argued in the Dewan Rakyat 1954-1965 that Malaysia should stick to the functions of the Currency Board whilst Malaysia wanted the functions of the BNM to prevail TO FURTHER THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EMERGING COUNTRY LIKE MALAYSIA TO PROVIDE PROSPERITY TO THE RAKYAT.

    This was the nub of the argument which made the Malaysians very angry because Lee Kuan Yew insisted that the BNM SHOULLD NOT BE A MONEY PRINTING MACHINE LIKE NOW.

    TWIN PEAKS. See the point. FROM 1957-2003, THERE WAS NO MONEY MIS-MANGEMENT UNTIL AFTER 2003. From 2004-2018 the System was still GOOD, VERY GOOD BUT IT WAS THE CROOKED DIGITS WHO MANAGED THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM WHICH STOLE THE MONEY. See the point.

    Now to answer your learned statements about I) the intentions of the British in Malaya, ii) the lack of money in Malaya after Merdeka and iii) Argentina.

    1) Even though the Ruling British and the City British are tied by the old school tie, their political and commercial interests are entirely different because of the fear of CORRUPTION WHICH BROUGHT DOWN THE ROMAN EMPIRE.

    When Sime Darby was attacked by Malaysian interests. Britain political and commercial fortunes were at an all-time low during the rule of the Labour Party which interest was focused on its entry into the EU in 1976. Britain was bankrupt shortly afterwards.

    SIME DARBY WAS NOT DEFENDED BY THE CITY COMMERCIAL INTERESTS UNLIKE IN 1981 WITH GUTHRIE WHICH COST MALAYSIA DEAR AT 2 BILLION POUNDS UNDER THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT OF THATCHER.

    The Malaysians were fortunate to get Sime Darby for only RM 23 Million with the help of 2 Singapore banks. This we must never forget ! Eventually, all British owned Plantations were sold to the Malaysians at fair market prices.

    Before I forget, just recently Boustead Plantation which IS A MALAY TRUST bought a 11,000 acres PONDAN estate (do you live nearby ?) in Tawau which consisted of at least 5 – 6 separate pieces of land FOR RM 750 MILLION CASH from a Chinese who could not sell it for over 20 years ! WHAT DO YOU THINK ? Vide The Edge March 2019.

    AND NOT FORGETTING THE MALAYS BOUGHT SIME DARBY (WITH 200,000 ACRES OF MATURE OIL PALMS) FOR ONLY RM 23 MILLION WITH THE HELP OF 2 SINGAPORE BANKS. What do you think, TWIN PEAKS ? Boustead Plantations’ grandfather’s MONEY ?

    2. You claimed that Malaya/Malaysia had no money.

    YOU ARE RIGHT. AS I MENTIONED HERE IN THIS BLOG, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH CONSISTED VERY FEW UNIVERSITY EDUCATED MINISTERS 1957-1969 KEPT THE POLICIES OF THE BRITISH COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD RIGHT UP TO 1969 WITHOUT KNOWING THE IMPACT SUCH A POLICY WOULD HAVE ON A RAKYAT WITH GREAT EXPECTATIONS AFTER MERDEKA.

    This ignorance kena the Federal Government of the Day SOMEWHAT LIKE THE DARK AGES OF MALAYSIA 2004-2018 WHEN THE 2 PRIME MINISTERS WERE NOT AWARE HOW THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENTS PERFORMED FROM 1957-2004.

    Instead of the traditional GOODIES FLOWING DOWN THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF THE POWER PYRAMID, THE GOODIES WERE SEEN DEFYING GRAVITY BY FLOWING UPWARDS RIGHT INTO THE POCKETS AT THE APEX ! The Malaysians were in agony and clutched their breasts for so long. In other countries there would have been bloody riots in half the time or less.

    YOU ARE RIGHT.

    Under the British Colonial Currency Board Policy 1957-1972, Malaya/Malaysia had NO MONEY and under the SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCs, our beloved Malaysia also had NO MONEY.

    One Trillion Ringgits flowed out between 2002-2010 and another RM 500 Billion 2011-2018. Vide UN Reports, World Bank, IMF. The host countries are now enjoying this stolen MONEY FOR FREE at our beloved Malaysia’s expense.

    3. On Argentina. – Argentina was one of the richest countries in the World before the Second World War 1939-1945. She was ranked No. 7 because she was the granary and cattle supplier for Europe. At the point when Peron took over, Argentina had tons of gold in the bank. When he died with his populist Policies, Argentina was ruined and bankrupt with all the gold gone concomitant with a raging inflationary scenario which could not be easily put out even today.

    Corruption was rife from Peron’s time caused by his wife, Evita Peron. Sounds familiar ?

    AGAIN IT IS THE CROOKED DIGITS WHICH MISMANAGED THE SYSTEM FOR SELF-SERVING ENDS. All the South American money ended up either in the United States or Switzerland. Now because of the Corrupt Digits, Argentina has no wheat, cattle or gold.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem In you we trust. Keep smiling.

    Good luck, TWIN PEAKS may you be blessed always !

    “THE MAIN CAUSE OF THE 13 MAY 1969 WAS DUE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BRITISH COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD POLICY 1957-1972.”

    Here is the way I see it (sorry, mubarakchan).
    Firstly, perhaps the British government wanted to prevent a build-up of their liabilities to Malaya who may one day want to redeem for foreign currency, London required Malayan Currency Board to shift their London-held reserves from high-yielding long-term, to low-yielding short-term British government securities, thus earning Malaya little or no interest over their assets. By the way, the self-governing Dominions like Australia and Canada were exempted of this rule.
    Secondly, Malaya’s government thus had comparatively little money to spend and therefore fiscal prudence was necessary. This affected nation-building and the socio-economic improvement of the poorer sections of a post-colonial society. When you add newly-found democratic freedoms into the mix, then it was a recipe for trouble.
    The lesson we draw from this is that there is a constant need to balance long-term fiscal prudence and immediate socio-economic needs. One cannot do without the another. To discard the former, Malaysia will end up like Argentina (sorry Argentinians), and to discard the latter, Malaysia will reverse back to the 1960s era. On the other hand, much credit should go to the gold standard era as there were less global financial crises then, both in number and scale.

    “IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO START ANY BUSINESS JUST LIKE THAT ESPECIALLY BASED ON A GREENFIELD BASIS IN A SMALL RECENTLY COLONISED COUNTRY.”

    Ditto again !
    I don’t have the time to go into great length now, but I would just like to add that if we apply the “greenfield” theory today, this metaphor aptly describes the great dilemma of getting the Bumiputera community into Big Business. The truth.. this field is almost exclusively the domination of the non-Bumiputera communities. The rare examples of TS Tony Fernandez excepted.
    My suggestion is simple. The current education system that aims at the average Malaysian kid from whatever ethnic and class background.. is essentially to prepare him/her for working life and not for getting into business (big or small).
    The reality is that the domination of the business field by a lucky few is solely attributed to exposure. Most Malaysian enterprises (big or small) are family-based, including those that eventually get listed on the KLSE. Family takes care of its own members, not outsiders. Business skills are handed down and rarely revealed to outsiders.
    It is extremely difficult to teach business, and you have to experience it. Universities cannot teach real-life business. Only theory. But a handful of tutors can make a difference (as I have done to my students in the past and present). Those lucky enough to get the rare tuition have a head start.

    Tun

    As the economy of our beloved Malaysia slowly recovers, I notice that there are more and more strident voices and comments which try to tell us otherwise.

    A simple gauge of the success of the New and Incorruptible Government is just the daily price of Brent Oil which had hovered above US$ 70 per barrel since 1 January 2019. With the good financial housekeeping by the New and Incorruptible Government, it is a cinch that much surplus money will accrue to the Government’s coffers. This is basic. And of course, this goodness is supplemented by the inflow of FDI which is coming into the country as expected. Here are some recent headlines of note, thus :-

    1. ” SINGAPORE MINISTRY OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY DOWNGRADES SINGAPORE’S 2019 ECONOMIC GROWTH FORECAST TO 15-25% ON WEAK OUTLOOK.” Inflation is not included !

    Singapore used to have a fizzy 7% GDP right up to the mid-1990s. This collapsed in 2002 when she had the first technical recession.

    For 17 years since 2002, Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% no matter how hard they tried even with Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives being Temasek, 2 casinos, FT imports, and Lee Kuan Yew’s creation the TPPA/CPTPP – Malaysia/Malays Killer. All the 4 Initiatives failed.

    The last Initiative is the NIRVANA for Singapore’s Sustainability and Lee Kuan Yew’s Legacy for his Inheritors. This is not to be.

    The future for Singapore is very bleak in a multi-polar Trading World compounded by Trump’s vision of the World. Unlike the easy going years of the Cold War 1948-1989 when Lee Kuan Yew had the support of Uncle Sam to do the QUESTIONABLE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES WHICH HUGE PROFITS 1948-1989 PUSHED 2 MILLION SOULS FROM THE THIRD TO THE FIRST WORLD ! How to come down from the perch now if INFLATION IS INCLUDED IN THE GDP ?

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    2. NSTP ” LET’S MAKE MALAYSIA GREAT AGAIN.”

    This is misleading and inaccurate.

    This headline is a load of nonsense. Our beloved Malaysia has always been GREAT even during the recent Dark Ages 2004-2018 – in fact VERY GREAT AS SHE EVOLVED THROUGH THE PASSAGE OF TIME FROM CENTURIES OF LONG AGO.

    This land is the fabled land of the Golden Chersonese – the storied Empires of Melaka and Patani.

    The land or possession of the British Empire which considered Malaya as its Crown Jewel only next to India.

    Our beloved Malaysia would have been rich beyond her dreams if the UNITED STATES GSA DID NOT KEEP A CAP ON MALAYA’S TIN AND RUBBER PRICES FROM WORLD WAR 2, 1939-1945 AND THEREAFTER ESPECIALLY DURING THE KOREAN WAR 1952-1953. It was the Americans who ruled the roost.

    Still, there were commodity booms during all those years, It was alleged that the small-holders made so much from rubber and tin, that they used refrigerators to store their belongings ! I still remember the Mercedes Benz 190 diesel was the motorcar of choice for the taxi drivers throughout the Peninsula.

    It was with this economic scenario that Malays gained her Merdeka with 70 % of her best assets still held by the British until the whole rigmarole was unravelled by my 1972 Concept to capture Sime Darby IN SUPPORT OF OUR PRIME MINISTER’S TUN ABDUL RAZAK NEP OF 1970.

    Up to the capture of Sime Darby by Malay interests, there was no BIG BUSINESS OWNED BY THE MALAYS WHO WERE ALSO NOT CASH RICH UNLIKE NOW.

    IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO START ANY BUSINESS JUST LIKE THAT ESPECIALLY BASED ON A GREENFIELD BASIS IN A SMALL RECENTLY COLONISED COUNTRY.

    The WAY was to buy up British assets at market prices AND PERMIT ALL THE EXISTING ENTERPRISES TO GROW AS WELL.

    Only RM 23 Million was paid for Sime Darby PLC. The balance of the support came from two Singapore banks which were rewarded handsomely. This was one contributory factor out of many others in support of our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad 22 year Administration, 1981-2003.

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN GREAT UNDER THE ROYAL SULTANS, THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG WITH THE ADVICE AND GUIDANCE BY THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEIN ONN AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD except for two of their successors who will not make a mark in HISTORY during our beloved Malaysia’s DARK AGES 2004-2018.

    Malaysia is now ALREADY GREATER WITH HER BECOMING ONE OF 4 IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, MALAYSIA SINCE 9 MAY 2018. Those who are unaware of this must be from Singapore or Mars !

    3. NSTP ” MAY 13 AND SOCIETAL INSECURITY “. A misleading headline without depth.

    THE MAIN CAUSE OF THE 13 MAY 1969 WAS DUE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BRITISH COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD POLICY 1957-1972.

    During this period, this British Colonial Policy which imposed strictures on expenditures on everything by the Federal Government and was compounded by very few Ministers who went to universities and had governing experience.

    The Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Dr Ismail Tun H.S. Lee, Dr Lim Swee Aun were the very few who attended institutions of higher learning.

    Most of the Ministers had no experience of governing at the highest level.

    There was a complete hiatus between the Federal Government and the NEEDS of the Rakyat unlike the New and Incorruptible Government today.

    The pre- 13 May 1969 situation was exactly like Malaysia’s Dark Ages 2004-2018.

    A few Ministers were enjoying themselves every night at Kuala Lumpur’s only hotel with a night club. This was banned by Tun Abdul Razak after 13 May 1969. Sounds familiar ?

    The Rakyat lived very much under conditions of the British Colonial times. The economy was very slow and jobs wer not forthcoming.

    I remember the real and solid initiatives undertaken by Tun Abdul Razak with the Tunku’s support like his FELDA and MARA ideas which some now claimed to be theirs. Not so. These IDEAS WERE TUN ABDUL RAZAK’S.

    The Tun also made moves to break-up sports associations controlled by only one community like the SCRC or Selangor Chinese Recreation Club, TPCA or Tamil Physical and Cultural Association, the Selangor Shooting Association which was controlled by only 33 Hakkas. He initiated the move to open up. The Selangor Shooting Association now has 2,000 members with RM 2 Million in its kitty.

    THE REAL UNDERLYING CAUSE OF THE 13 MAY 1969 TRAGEDY WAS THE BRITISH COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD POLICY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 1957-1972.

    Many factors like Lee Kuan Yew 1963-1965, the Penang Riots 1967, the Kepong Incident 1969, the Pre- 1969 GE heated lobbying, the Post-1969 unbridled taunting by the Opposition, the general dissatisfaction amongst the elitist Malay and non-Malay graduates, the ever present Chinese vernacular schools unhappiness, left wing agitation, the MCA Leader pulled out of the Alliance at 2.30 p.m. 13 May 1969 in a pique but returned far too late at 10 p.m. This Political move upset the partners of MCA, the majority stakeholders etc – CAME TO A HEAD AT 5 P.M. 13 MAY 1969 on that fateful day.

    THE WHOLE TRAGEDY WAS UNNECESSARY BECAUSE IT WAS NOT POLITICAL, COMMUNAL OR RELIGIOUS. IT JUST HAPPENED AND CAUSED BY THE WRONG MOVES WHICH ADDED UP TO THE CONFLAGRATION . IF OTHERWISE, THE TRAGEDY WOULD NOT HAVE ONLY HAPPENED IN ISOLATED AREAS IN KUALA LUMPUR.- THE UNDERLYING CAUSE WAS THE BRITISH COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD POLICY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 1957-1972 WHICH NO LEADER REALLY UNDERSTOOD ITS IMPACT ON THE RAKYAT WITH GREAT EXPECTATIONS AFTER MERDEKA 1957.

    We also cannot blame the British or any one else with the IMMATURITY OF OUR NEW FOUND MERDEKA !

    Hence, the importance of words of caution from our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on “MINDSET”, DSAI on “FOCUS ON FOOD ON THE TABLE AND JOBS ” and Tun Daim on ” THE IMPORTANCE OF HARAPAN’S OWN NARRATIVE ”

    I remember huge areas of Kuala Lumpur were left unguarded by the PDRM due to the shortage of personal. These days it is impossible to provide SECURITY for all. Hence, for those who had the real experience it is the prerogative of any incumbent Government to have A POLICY THAT PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. The NEP – 1970-2000 created by our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and his Team was a great invention. No more 13 May 1969 Tragedy for us. We are Malaysians. Keep smiling !

  62. mubarakchan May 20,2019 2:16 PM

    Tun

    Earlier in the month, a couple of writers here and there wanted to resurrect the facts behind the events which exploded at 5 p.m. 13 May 1969, beginning in the upper reaches of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

    Strangely, I was able to recall snippets of events which led up to that tragic moment from the beginnings of the PAP conundrum in the Dewan Rakyat with Lee Kuan Yew as its Leader. I attended several sessions of the Dewan Rakyat which heated arguments I still can remember.

    The determination of Lee Kuan Yew and his cohorts pitching for a ‘Malaysia for Malaysians’ knowing full well the historical, religious and cultural aspects of Malaysia were not what he made it out to be.
    His remarks were carried out to the streets with the forthcoming 1964 General Elections. Huge rallies were held at the Sulaiman Court where Sogo is today. I was there.

    I have never seen anything quite like it with Lee Kuan Yew leading the proceedings. The PAP lost all and retreated from the Federation with the Separation of Singapore from Malaysia.

    By 1967, duties were imposed on goods in Penang. This led to a riot.

    By now the undercurrent of dissatisfaction with the British Colonial Currency Board Policy of the Alliance Government began to rear its ugly head. The economy was very slow. The rich were seen to be richer.

    But the fact was with The Currency Board Policy,- a country only spent what it earned giving rise to strictures on Government spending for the benefit of the Rakyat since 1957.

    Worst of all my Malay graduate friends were poor in their own country as there were no OD., Credit cards, House Loans and other financial means to assist them. Nearly all of the Malay graduates had relatives who were Civil Servants who helped them to get started.

    My non-Malay graduate friends suffered the same fate. With Lee Kuan Yew and his cohorts putting a cap on Government monetary Policy via his view of the Bank Negara Malaysia.This move only made the Malaysian Government to sit tight and do nothing for the Rakyat.

    For all intents and purposes, from a technical point of view one may point the finger at the British Colonial Currency Board Policy which operated from 1957-1972 when it was disbanded as the CURRENCY BOARD OF MALAYA, SINGAPORE NORTH BORNEO SARAWAK AND BRUNEI OR MALAYSIA SINGAPORE AND BRUNEI. I was there.

    But in a Democracy like Malaysia, different political factions, different communal groups etc were at play which was sparked off by the unfortunate Kepong incident.

    This gave rise to gangster mobs exploiting a moment of weakness with their parade along Foch Avenue Kuala Lumpu, now known as Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. I was there. This was before the fateful GE of 1969. The results of the GE was a great shock to the ruling Alliance. Again the gangster mobs came out in droves along Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur taunting all in their path. I was there.

    The President of the MCA took MCA out of the Alliance in a pique at 2.30 p.m. MCA was back in the Alliance by 10 p.m. It was far too late. My UMNO Youth friend rang me up at that fateful time, 2.30 p.m. and asked me to go home. Instead of selling short on the Singapore Stock Exchange, I rang up all my relatives to go home. I returned home at 4 p.m. My elder sister was shopping in the Odeon area of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman at 5 p.m. She heard people shouting and the shops shutters were closing all round her. She was not frighten because she did not understand what was happening.

    For myself, I usually go to train at the Subang National Shooting Range on Tuesdays and return home at 6 p.m. along the highway which ran past Kampong Kerinchi below the TV Complex. It was alleged on that fateful day at 6 p.m. there was a riot there. But on that particular Tuesday, I injured my eye a week before this. And I did not go to the shooting range.

    My house was in a residential area between Kampong Baru and Chinatown. Around 6 p.m. gangsters were roaming the streets with staves. By 8.30 p.m. the first gunshots were heard. But my area was quiet despite the sound of gunshots throughout the night and for the next few days.

    My Hainanese friend Dato Wong Kok Fun whose family home was right in the middle of Kampong Baru was undisturbed and my brother-in-law and his family too at the edge of Kampong Baru. My brother lived at Lorong Gurney Satu which was right opposite a school padang where the Malay Regiment 5th Battalion was bivouacked, he too was not disturbed but found the soldiers orderly and disciplined. These are the facts.

    After a few days, my friend the Deputy IGP sent me his personal car with a bodyguard armed with a Sten gun which transported me to another house in Federal Hill away from the sounds of the gunshots coming from the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman area. I was also aware that at the material time the PDRM was fully stretched according to reports from my friends.

    My friends at the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital reported accordingly to me.

    It was the coincidental combination of many factors which exploded into one tragic incident. Hence with a beautiful hindsight, only an INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT WILL BE AWARE AND TAKE THE RIGHT STEPS TO STIFLE OUT ANY EARLY SIGNS OF TROUBLEMAKING BY ANYONE.

    ARISING FROM WHAT I SAW AND HEARD ALL ROUND, WHEN I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY I DEVELOPED MY 1972 SIME DARBY CONCEPT WHICH WAS SUPPORTED BY THE PRIME MINISTER TUN ABDUL RAZAK AND YBM TENGKU RAZALEIGH HAMZAH TO RIGHT A WRONG which was that there were no Malays in big business until the advent of Sime Darby.

    For my effort, a MCA politician called me a ‘ MALAY BUM SUCKER.’ But at the same time, he was shamelessly cheating Sime Darby of its valuable Nova Scotia land in 1990 which was sold at only RM 4 Million to him and he sold it for RM 88 Million to Selangor Perangsang and Talam. The land was worth more than RM 100 Million ! The ex-MCA Chairman of Sime Daby sold Benta to this fellow as well who told the Singapore Business Times that I assisted him in the sale. This same MCA fellow could remit via my friend in 1985, S$100 Million to his friend’s bank account in Hong Kong. And at the same time it was alleged he borrowed for his legal fees in Singapore. It was stranger than fiction.

    Throughout the 1960s, I sat at Rubber and Oil Palm Councils which were dominated by the British, French and the Danes.

    On 13 May 1969, the Malays had 2% of the Malaysian economy, the British 70% of the best whilst a handful of Chinese tycoons and all the Chinese had 25% of the 3rd rate assets except for some traders.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We have come a long way since 13 May 1969. In you we trust. Keep smiling.

    Through the years I have not come across Malaysian comments like those from Singapore in recent weeks, thus :-

    1. ” MALAYSIA’S HOPE OF ECONOMIC REVIVAL UNDER MAHATHIR FADE. POLLS ”

    2. ” DR M HAS LITTLE TIME LEFT TO GO DOWN AS A STATESMAN ”

    3. ” SINGAPORE NON-OIL EXPORTS EXTEND DOUBLE DIGIT DROP FOR SECOND STRAIGHT MONTH APRIL CONFOUNDING EXPECTATAIONS.”

    Those Malaysian admirers of Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore will be up in arms at any iconoclastic and factual comments about this sacrosanct self-created figure.

    Strange, we do not find such characters doing similarly or otherwise in Singapore. Now only a city with 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50 according to the Singapore Government White Paper on Population. 2011.

    It also struck me as odd that after the disastrous 2 Family Policy of 1972-1984 which ground the whole population to a halt, it is now alleged that a population of 10 Million will be the ideal figure for Singapore in the distant future. This maybe 2 generations too late.

    My observation on this demographic is that NO GENIUS HAS COME OUT OF THE FAILED PUBLIC POLICY OF LEE KUAN YEW SINCE 1972-1984.

    This is a fact.

    This also showed the failure of putting up barriers to keep out most of the intended immigrants since 1972. This was 47 years ago.

    Even the education is askew with the American billionaire Jim Rogers screaming his head off in San Francisco, at the treatment his children received whilst resident in Singapore.

    In recent years, leaking holes in Singapore’s once squeaky clean armour have appeared in no uncertain terms.

    I attribute this to the fault of the elite Leadership which seemed to have lost its MOJO for many years for want of a perfect ruling formula or system which was previously guided by one person and one person only.

    Answers are to be found in the deep recesses of their brains which lie in waste without use. Like the great store of Goodwill and Credits which Lee Kuan Yew had with the World, were forgotten for at least 30 years. Strangely, their total efforts were to make a mickey out of our beloved Malaysia and do her down. As I said before this was a dangerous and costly distraction.

    SUDDENLY OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BECAME ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND,MALAYSIA SINCE 9 MAY 2018.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    How can Singapore revive or re-invent itself for the goodness of her people and the World especially her nearest and dearest, our beloved Malaysia ?

    Singapore has to embark on a course which will be the World’s First and it is certainly the World’s First to be sustainable and meaningful as a Sovereign and Independent Nation of a one-street town.

    Monaco is in a similar situation of sorts and Gibraltar with a host of West Indian islands still cling to the apron string’s of Mother Britain on different terms.

    In time and with situations like those created by Trump’s America, the turbulent seas which now toss Singapore around like a cork in the dark and deep ocean will force the elites of Singapore to think and think deeply how best to return Singapore to an even keel in a safe haven.

    The haven before Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel of post Cold War 1948-1989, ” Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.” all of which were anathema to Singapore’s interests.

    As the saying goes, ‘ The Americans easily forget. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget.’ Singapore’s services to the West during the Cold War 1948-1989 were forgotten. Recently, she lost her US Democrat Mojo as well.

    How ? No one in Singapore has dared to broach the subject of a possible CONFEDERATION OF STATES BETWEEN BRITAIN/SCOTLAND AND SINGAPORE !

    I DARE SAY CONFEDERATION FOR BOTH IS A PERFECT FIT FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES !

    Like this, it is my fervent believe that all the difficult problems afflicting Singapore and its inhabitants will be resolved. Because at the end of the day, the big ticket items in wasteful expenditure like the military and keeping tabs on harmless innocents like me and others with handlers from the huge Ministry of Information become absolutely unnecessary with the precious fund channelled to serve the disadvantage poor and aged Singaporeans. With this political move, the threat of aggression by external forces is removed and protected at the same time. Instead of playing cloak and dagger with public money through the employment of hundreds of spies all over the Globe.

    To quote Franklin D Roosevelt, ‘ THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF.’

    With the forthcoming World’s First Confederation between Britain/Scotland and Singapore, those Malaysians who admire the greener grass in the 3 acre Hong Lim Green now renamed Hong Lim Park to make it sounds BIGGER, WILL NO LONGER ATTACK ME AS THEY HAVE NO MORE INFERIORTIY COMPLEX OF THE SINGAPORE KIND BUT OF A BIGGER CONFEDERATION !

    But before I forget, Singapore can also claim that the Confederation will have the World’s First TELE-PARLIAMENT in this World of the Net !

    Who can now say that Confederated Singapore is without VISION, INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY in this real World of ours and not something out of Lewis Carroll’s ‘ Alice in Wonderland ‘ with plastic flowers ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem with your brilliant and courageous Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side. In you we trust. Keep smiling.

    By now after a year’s responsibility in the Premiership of our beloved Malaysia, you must have found it intriguing to observe some of your YB Ministers doing their own thing outside the precepts of the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great.

    These elected representative must have felt unfettered with their new found FREEDOM in speech and action. Faux pas scattered like confetti all round to the delight of the naysayers, troublemakers and detractors.

    Some began to bay like the hounds not of Sherlock Holmes’ Baskerville in tune with the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GKCs 2004-2018. So much so, your most trusted friend came out and admonished them. ‘Do not be led by the nose to propagate the intentions of others !’ was how I interpret his comment. However, that was yesterday. And today is another day as one UMNO Tan Sri once cheekily told me. I just grinned at such wisdom.

    Even my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree have become grumpy and recalcitrant. A chirp or two only. Nothing more. Maybe it was because of the hot weather due to climate change. Maybe they were upset by all the unnecessary political quarrels which swirled around them every day. But serious events must come first with the following headlines, the bread and butter issues as DSAI commented, thus :-

    1. ” RICOH MOVES OUTPUT TO THAILAND AS CHINA EXTENDS TARIFFS ”

    With China now caught in a Trade War with Trump’s United States which may not have a happy ending, and the Devil will take the hindmost, it was a wise decision for Ricoh to move to Thailand in South East Asia the home of the hard-working and skilled labour. I am certain more will do the same not only because of Trade Wares and the like but also for the vicissitudes of the climate and climate change.

    It is good we have the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team in place by his side. It is good our beloved Malaysia has had a long experience in welcoming foreign investors of all kinds. It is good we have the lands and infrastructure to house them with the requisite workers as well.

    The joint business Councils should be at work enticing unhappy investors now in unstable countries to come to Malaysia. This time round the investors maybe of a different kind which make a different kind of product and not like those which were here and have now left for cheaper pastures.

    But with the coming of the Kulim International Airport and the Northern Region in support for more and more investments, domestic and foreign, the future of our beloved Malaysia is bright if all hands are to the wheel of hard-work with Success. The cake is out there to be made and eaten by all concerned.

    2. ” TOURISM MINISTER SAYS TO EXPECT GOOD NEWS ON VISAS ON ARRIVAL ”

    Under the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs 2004-2018, I thought this visa issue was resolved long ago. But lo and behold ! We are now told to expect this issue resolved soon. Better late than never.

    AT LEAST THE TOURISM MINISTER MAKES UP WITH HIS RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE MINISTRY’S SUPPORT FOR THE ALL IMPORTANT KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE RESOLUTION OF THIS VISA ISSUE AFTER COMMITTING A FAUX PAS IN BERLIN THE LGBT CAPITAL OF EU. Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and Sydney are the other capitals.

    KUDOS TO THE TOURISM MINISTER WHO MUST ENSURE THAT TRAVEL AGENTS MAKE PROFITS TO BRING IN THE TOURISTS AND MAKE THEM COMFORTABLE WITH REAL BARGAINS. We can bring in 40 Millions given the time and the inclination with the YB Minister pushing the right things.

    The growth of tourism is right at home.

    Unlike the MCA Minister in the Age of Kleptocracy 2004-2018 who promoted London at the upper-class Royal Chelsea Flower Show and was awarded a Gold Medal by the Queen. THIS MEDAL RIGHTFULLY AND LEGALLY BELONGS TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem

    Nothing can beat a classical Malaysian morning of calm blue skies with sunshine. This was the early morning today. The bulbuls were so restful in their nest in the young banyan tree that they gave only a perfunctory chirp now ant then. I did not wait to hear their full repertoire as I hurried off with my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK which awaits her with the mid-year tests. But the real headlines are interesting, very interesting for those who care and understand, thus :-

    1. ” ECONOMY GROWS 4.5% IN FIRST QUARTER “. The very first inkling of a solid economic recovery. This figure is slightly above expectations.

    2. ” SINGAPORE NON-OIL EXPORTS EXTEND DOUBLE DIGIT DROP FOR SECOND STRAIGHT MONTH APRIL CONFOUNDING EXPECTATIONS ” Singapore has a multi-polar World in trade unlike those monopolistic questionable and unmentionable trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 condoned by Uncle Sam.

    3. ” CRITICS SLAM RAIL DEAL AWARDED TO THAILAND’S RICHEST FAMILY ”
    Even Thailand is forced to stimulate her economy via a fast rail track.

    4. ” INDONESIA PROPOSES GRAND PLAN TO REBUILD THE COUNTRY “.
    Indonesia is also taking steps to improve her economy through infra-structure construction.

    5. ” TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S FINEST – THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE NORTHERN REGION.” This headline is my creation.

    Let the above-mentioned headlines be self-explanatory.

    I will not comment at all this morning but only for noting that our beloved Malaysia’s economy is on the re-bound which is faster than expected. With the official announcement of the KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE NORTHERN REGION, Malaysia is on all-systems GO as led by our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side !

    The Minister for Economic Affairs, YB Datuk Seri Azmin is cautiously optimistic thus, ” MALAYSIA HAS POTENTIAL TO BECOME GATEWAY TO REGIONAL MARKET “.

    With the Port facilities in Penang’s Butterworth, the Kulim International Airport and the transport linkages to all points in the Region and with the future Kota Baru Sea Reclamation, MALAYSIA HAS MORE THAN ONE GATEWAY TO THE REGION BEING THE PENANG-KEDAH NEXUS, THE CENTRAL REGION NEXUS AND THE SOUTHERN REGION NEXUS.

    What more does the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great want on their plate which is as fantastic as a person can discern ? The PROPENSITY OF TURNING A ONCE SELF- DOWN-TRODDEN MALAYSIA OVERNIGHT INTO ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD SINCE 9 MAY 2018 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling.

    Those Malaysians who understand the meaning of the importance of the Kulim International Airport to uplift socio-economically not only the Northern Region comprising Penang, Kedah, Perlis, Perak, Kelantan and Trengganu but also the whole of the Peninsula to Sabah, Sarawak and beyond to South Thailand, will realise of the sea-change that is to come for our beloved Malaysia which now sits strategically and geographically at the nexus not only of ASEAN but Asia as well.

    When our beloved Malaysia was ruled by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs 2004-2018, our country was NOTHING.

    It was so weak our valuable assets from rocks, steel rails, precious KTM lands, UMNO NSTP Chair, the Avenue, low-hanging fruits, etc were all given away to Singapore.

    Malaysia was not the choke-point then but Singapore.

    During the 14 years of Dark Ages, Malaysia was NOTHING compared to her status today as ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    Malaysis’s strategic geographic position in the middle of ASEAN bears much weight given the fact that she is now ruled by a NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT.

    It is not only the MIND-SET but the recovery of our PRIDE, DIGNITY AND SELF-RESPECT which hold sway as MALAYSIANS AND NOT SOMEONE’S FOOTSTOOL TO BE STAMPED ON. Were all Malaysians aware of the dire and shameful period 2004-2018 we were placed into by the very Leaders whom we trusted and elected into POWER ?

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    KUDOS TO THE GENIUS WHO HAD THE IDEA OF THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

    With this FLAG OF COURAGE AND ENDEAVOUR NOW NAILED TO THE MAST OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT, a WAY which is ORIGINAL AND INNOVATIVE will lead all of us the Rakyat to greater heights of socio-economic endeavour in support of our BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM WHO WILL LEAD US THE WAY !

    So much for all that. I will produce a headline this morning thus :-

    ” A TALE OF TWO CITIES. PENANG AND SINGAPORE.”

    Here are the cogent reasons why Penang is not Singapore. Singapore is not Penang.

    1. If we go back to the historical basis in British Colonial times, the British had already worked out Singapore is way ahead of Penang in terms of SUCCESS in any endeavour. Hence, Penang has always been a faint shadow of Singapore since the beginning of time.

    2. In other words, any copy-cat activity by Penang based on Singapore will not work but to turn it only into a tropical slum of NO MERIT.

    3. Then, what to do ? Simple. Fortunately, Singapore does not own the World and the World can be Penang’s oyster with the proper MIND-SET. The vacancy for Penang is to be THE WORLD’S FINEST HOLIDAY AND LEISURE RESORT WITH THE WORLD’S FINEST MODERN TROPICAL CITY.

    This is Penang’s World Monopoly which belongs to her and only her alone. Penang has created her very own World renown status which will be enhanced by the new and dynamic Kedah State with its very own and famous ECO-TOURISM FOR THE WORLD ! See how two State by coming together with the same MIND-SET BENEFIT NOT ONLY THEMSELVES AND MALAYSIA BUT ALSO THE WORLD.

    3. The creation of WEALTH by Singapore was an entirely different kettle of fish which Penang hopes to copy cat today.

    Through the ingenuity of Lee Kuan Yew, he could magnify the importance of Singapore to Uncle Sam during the Cold War 1948-1989. He could get the US Democrats on his side. Along with this good relationship, the goodies came in the form of the UNMENTIONALBE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1848-1989 AND THE FULLEST DIRECT SUPPORT FROM UNCLE SAM LIKE INVESTMENTS AND MILITARY USE OF SINGAPORE’S AIR AND SEA FACILITIES. The revenue from these sources came in a flood which pushed up LAND PRICES and Singapore pushed from the Third World to the First.

    As a well-known Singaporean once told me,’ DO NOT BE JEALOUS OF SHAW BROTHERS, ROBERT KUOK OR TAN CHIN TUAN. THEY ARE HISTORY. YOU DO YOUR OWN THING AND DO IT WELL. ‘ I followed his advice to the latter and here am I writing in this distinguished Blog.

    4. UNLIKE PENANG LEE KUAN YEW NEVER BORROWED A SINGLE CENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SINGAPORE. THE MONEY CAME FROM OTHERS WHO BELIEVED IN SINGAPORE. HAS PENANG GOT THE ABILITY TO DO THE SAME ? It is alleged that the 3 Projects, the 3 islands, the Tunnel and the Highway are not only wrapped around by red-tape but the funding in the billions of ringgits has yet to be found.

    5. UNLIKE SINGAPORE, PENANG NOW HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS IF THE STATE GOVERNMENT HAS THE GUMPTION, THE MIND-SET AND THE WILL TO PUT PENAND AS THE FINEST WORLD CLASS PLACE FOR THE BENEFIT NOT ONLY OF ITS RAKYAT BUT THE WORLD. Different strokes for different folks to gain REVENUE FOR THE STATE.

    Not only the leverage but the existing GOODWILL to get the best support out of the Federal Government in support of the NEW PROPOSALS especially on the old Bayan Lepas Airport and the transport links etc to come. I believe the State Government has the astuteness and ability to do so.

    6. Remember what Deng Xiao Peng said,’ IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER THE CAT IS BLACK OR WHITE AS LONG AS IT CATCHES MICE.’

    7. IN ONE SINGLE SENTENCE ANYONE WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE NEW PROPOSALS FOR PENANG WITHOUT ANY HESITATION TO GAIN REVENUE FOR PENANG.

    8. WITH SO MUCH EXISTING LAND WHICH CAN BE TURNED INTO WEALTH FOR THE REVENUE TO BENEFIT THE RAKYAT AND THE STATE’S SUPPORTERS NOW VIA THE NEW PROPOSALS, how to miss SUCCESS for the State Government of Penang ? And I hope this Government will be in POWER for the next 60 years !

    9. ONE OF THE MANY STRENGTHS OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS HIS ABILITY TO AVOID PITFALLS BY U-TURNS. IT IS NO SHAME AT ALL IF IT IS IN THE RAKYAT’S INTEREST.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    It is good to report that my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree chirped and sang again this morning. This duo always sparked my mind with their duet that how wonderful Life is in our beloved Malaysia under sensible and successive BN Governments and now the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great until the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs took over POWER 2004-2018. This was not a dark moment.

    IT WAS THE DARK AGES OF A ONCE HAPPY HOSPITABLE FRIENDLY AND TRUSTFUL RAKYAT. All were shattered to the core of seeing and hearing the unbelievable acts of our Nation’s Top Leadership and its elites – 2004-2018.

    But the INHERENT GOODNESS OF HUMANKIND MUST PREVAIL.

    Dawn broke and with our deserved Freedom from Bondage which was imposed upon the whole Nation by those who were already the HAVES with Social Status and Money and DEFINITELY NOT THE HAVE-NOTS.

    This crazy Administration of an otherwise well-run Country – 1957-2003 became worse and worse as the years went by.

    In the 1960s, I expected the country would lose some standards and ethics but never in my worst imagination that our beloved Malaysia became worst than South America and Africa combined – THE OUTRIGHT THEFT OF THE RAKYAT’S WEALTH BY THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS WITH NO HOLDS BARRED which could be translated as the Government was plotting every day for 14 years to have schemes to rape our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat FINANCIALLY OF ALL THE WEALTH.

    Lo and Behold ! Dawn broke with the ousting of the Corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 and the coming of the New and Incorruptible Government.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES !

    Not only our beloved Malaysia has a New and Incorruptible Government but also a clean and dynamic Government to produce the real goodies for the Rakyat. But the icing on the cake has appeared as THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT which IDEA CAME FROM A GENIUS WHO SHOULD BE LAUDED ACCORDINGLY.

    THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL ARIPORT IS THE FLAG OF COURAGE AND ENDEAVOUR BEING THE NUB OF A REGION IN CREATING VERY PRECIOUS REAL PROPERTY KNOWN AS THE NORTHERN REGION COMPRISING PENANG, KEDAH, PERLIS, KELANTAN, PERAK AND TRENGGANU. How many Malaysians realise this, Tun ?

    This Northern Region with the Kulim International Airport as its NUB will be one of the MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT REGION OF THE WORLD BECAUSE IT FORMS THE LOGICAL EXTENSION OF THE BELT AND ROAD OF CHINA. IT IS ALONG THE AIR ROUTE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST ASIA. IT WILL BE NEAR TO THE FORTHCOMING ISTHMUS OF KRA CANAL. IT IS IN THE HEART OF THE MOST STRATEGIC AND POLITICALLY GEOGRAPHIC COUNTRY IN ASEAN AND THE WORLD BEING MALAYSIA.

    This Northern Region’s forthcoming development has become THE FLAG OF COURAGE AND ENDEAVOUR FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT TO LEAD US ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP WITH VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA, GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN.

    Away with the snide remarks of the naysayers, the troublemakers and the detractors. Because of the goodness, integrity and steadfastness of the New and Incorruptible Government, an important, valuable and precious asset which is easy to understand and develop has arrived on its door-step.

    KUDOS TO THE GENIUS WHO THOUGHT OF THE IDEA OF THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem

    Man proposes. God disposes. The rise of the Northern Region will be one of your finest and greatest achievements not only for Malaysia but the World. Keep smiling !

    It is good you were never taken up by catchy slogans like bio-medical sciences even though you are aware that Japan is one of the leading countries for scientific research and innovations.

    For some who are not aware of the meaning of academic research which the United States takes on a huge scale because of her Wealth and the many rich donors, it was estimated that only 1% of the total academic research output could be meaningful and practical for every day use.

    A country like Japan was very good at innovation of the researches done by the United States. Companies like Sony, Hitachi and others made their successes on the innovation into practical use via US trade marks or franchises.

    But the academic centres in Malaysia can be part of a chain of experimental laboratories which is derived from a mother laboratory centre in a major World university well-known in the subject under study. Standards and ethics in the field of research are jealously guarded.

    I had a classmate who became a top laboratory technology expert whose skills were exclusively utilised by a famous Jewish medical professor in the University of Toronto, Ontario Canada.

    Academic research in established universities is the highest level of academic achievement as we all know. And this particular endeavour is a closely guarded academic activity by the head of each laboratory in succession.

    Like the phrase ‘hole in the heart’ which is actually a journalistic phrase. ‘Bio-medical sciences’ is another journalistic catch phrase for the layman. In reality, the real activity is much more complicated than this as we know.

    As far as I know, in my Life-time, the best scientists came from Malaysia not Singapore.

    A Malaysian is the Emeritus Professor of Medicine, King’s College, Cambridge. Another the Professor of Geriatrics of the same University. A third was so famous in Paediatric Ophthalmology surgery that he was knighted by the Queen and awarded by all the major universities of the World. I believe there is another Malaysian in Beijing who is a well-know liver surgeon. And many others who did not go to Singapore or USA..

    Only the best universities of the World will produce the best academics like in Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s alma mater the famous King Edward VII College of Medicine, Singapore which produced many famous surgeons like Tan Sri Alhady, Tan Sri Coco Majid and physicians. They were all inspired by the professors which lectured them.

    Academic research is a carefully nurtured activity in any university which takes a long period of development and costs in a refined environment of like minds. Money cannot buy academic prestige but only by the published results of its academic denizens which must be vetted by their peers.

    This is for TWIN PEAKS who wants to derail the logical thinking of normal Malaysians by suggesting that the country should retain academics to do research in Malaysia instead of Singapore or the United States in 2019 ! This should be the top priority as he said.

    But DSAI rightly pointed out that food and jobs on the table should be the First Priority. I support DSAI.

    But this person went further and accused me of being PERSONAL.

    1. TWIN PEAKS how can I be personal to you when you do not exist anywhere in this World ?

    2. TWIN PEAKS IS A FAKE NAME WHICH YOU HIDE BEHIND AND MADE ALL SORTS OF FRIVOLOUS, NEBULOUS, VEXATIOUS AND WITHOUT DUE LOGICAL REMARKS

    3. TWIN PEAKS YOU HAVE NO LOCUS STANDI. Therefore your remarks are of no consequence. unless you unmask yourself.

    4. TWIN PEAKS I HAVE NEVER MADE ANY PERSONAL REMARKS AGAINST ANYONE UNLESS THEY MADE ATTACKS ON ME FIRST. GO AND CHECK. ALL MY REMARKS CAN BE SUBSTANTIATED. THIS IS WHY I RELY ON HEADLINES. DID’NT YOU NOTICE. And as for my comments on Lee Kuan Yew, I only commented on his 47 Failed Public Policies since he was a Public Figure. Nothing personal.

    Someone told me not to talk about Lee Kuan Yew since he is dead. I retorted that ALL THE HISTORY PROFESSORS AND THEIR HISTORY DEPARTMENTS MIGHT AS WELL CLOSE SHOP SINCE HISTORY ONLY TALKS ABOUT DEAD PEOPLE.

    Like human beings, my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree did give a chirp or two this morning but nothing more. They have not been performing like a Swiss cuckoo clock for some weeks. Never mind. The fact is they are still their doing their thing. That’s the WAY with birds. What about men of the Singapore kind ?

    After the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs, I expected the Singapore Government to begin a fresh page of relationship with Malaysia for mutual benefit and not treat the Malaysians as though they are still living in the Ulus.

    But lo and behold ! The inheritors carried on as if this is the 20th Century with constant display of Lee Kuan Yew’s inconsistent quotations. And of late, brazen attacks or snide remarks or fake news focussed on our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad only and no one else.

    What is the fear of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ?

    A kind-hearted, honest and common sense of a normal person. To quote Franklin D Roosevelt, ‘ THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF.’

    Why this Singapore unhappiness over a Great Malaysian Statesman after the Singaporeans had a free run for 14 years during the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and GLCs 2004-2018. like going for the low hanging fruits, the Avenue, 4th Floor Boys (now men), UMNO NSTP Editor’s Chair, rocks, steel rails, valuable KTM Singapore lands, etc with Malaysia in exchange for 1/2 of an office building.

    The reason is the cat’s paw for Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew – THE TPPA/CPTPP, the Malaysia/Malays Killer which if ratified our beloved Malaysia will be in eternal BONDAGE TO SINGAPORE UNDER LEGAL TERMS signed by our own hands. A PERFECT ACT OF STUPIDITY.

    Why the beating of the chests and the tearing of the hair by the frustrated Singaporeans even now ?

    THE TPPA/CPTPP WOULD HAVE BASHED DOWN THE TARIFF BARRIERS OF MALAYSIA IN SINGAPORE’S FAVOUR. IN OTHER WORDS, THE MOMENT THE TPPA/CPPEP IS RATIFIED, LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED SINGAPOREAN GOODS FLOOD IN. Our factories go kaput. Workers sacked. Chaos reign in the streets. The incumbent Government gets the blame. Non-Malays are financed by Singapore to import Singapore goods. Malaysia becomes a slave State of Singapore created by her own hands because the ex-PM signed the TPPA/CPPTP the Malaysia/Malays Killer.

    BOASTFULLY, THE SINGAPORE BUSINESS TIMES BRAGGED AFTER THE SIGNING THAT SINGAPORE SAVES A MINIMUM OF S$ 1 BILLION A YEAR. In other words, Malaysia loses RM 3 Billions a year minimum.

    Still why the angst and the outrage at our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ?

    As with all humans, the Singaporeans lay the blame on the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs on THE BRILLIANCE AND COURAGE OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD. The Singaporeans after all the years of hot private retreats and kisses did not expect to end up with NOTHING !

    The Singaporeans were so cock-sure that this time Singapore has got our beloved Malaysia between a rock and a hard-place via the TPPA.CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays Killer, that when REALITY STRUCK IT WAS LIKE HEAVEN FELLED ON THEIR SWOLLEN HEADS !

    Why ? For the very first time in June 2009, even Lee Kuan Yew at the age of 85 visited the hot and humid Ulus to exhort his digits, cohorts, spies, treacherous Civil Servants, fellow travelling Chinese politicians in red mandarin silks etc in support of his creation the TPPA/CPPTP. He even had tea with the lady of the day off Jalan Duta and cheekily paid a perfunctory visit to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on his way to the Airport – as a reminder of his temporal POWER.

    But the important thing was the ex-PM, the ex-Minister, the ex-Senior Civil Servant and the President of the SME (got a Tan Sri Ship for letting down his Members) were in FULL SUPPORT OF THE TPPA/CPPTP THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER. How to miss ?

    ALL THE VVIPS IN SINGAPORE’S LITTLE POCKET.

    Most importantly, the Nirvana for Singapore forever which is our beloved Malaysia in SINGAPORE’S ETERNAL LEGAL BONDAGE WILL BE RATIFIED IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS THE DAY AFTER THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND THE GLCs win.on 9 May 2018 ! See how difficult BREXIT is without tricks of a Singaporean kind.

    This sordid tale of Malaysian betrayal, treachery and greed began in 1989 when the Communist World imploded – 1948-1989. Thereafter, Uncle Sam came out with his hegemonic spiel, “Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights ‘ which suited the BRICS to a T. They immediately grabbed all of Lee Kuan Yew’s monopolistic UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR- 1948-1989 WHICH PUSHED SINGAPORE FROM A THIRD TO THE FIRST WORLD. So easy ugh ?

    It was the ingenuity of Lee Kuan Yew who inveigled this MONOPOLY of UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 OUT OF UNCLE SAM WHICH WAS SINGAPORE’S MONEY BONANZA FOR A SMALL POPULATION UNDER A HONEST AND AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT.

    Whether Lee Kuan Yew a pragmatist knew that ‘Americans forget easily. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget.’ or not is the question when Uncle Sam came up with his hegemonic spiel. ‘ Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights’ All anathema to Singapore !

    With the awareness of structural problems arising in the future, Goh Chok Tong was despatched to India to recruit FTs with the fervent hope that the fizzy 7% GDP from 1970s and the 1980s could be sustained.

    As expected, in 2002 Singapore went into a technical recession. But by the turn of 2000, Temasek was pumped up and running to add to the sustainablitly of the 7% GDP of the past.

    By 2006, Lee Kuan Yew had 4 INITIATIVES UP AND RUNNGIN being Temasek, 2 casinos, the FTs and the Free Trade Scheme (TPPA was Obama’s relic). In 2006, only Singapore, Brunei, New Zealand and Chile were members. The Americans were not interested. But after the Crash of October 2008, Obama was ready to grasp at the Lee Kuan Yew’s Free Trade Scheme and called it his own TPPA. In January 2017, Trump tore-up the TPPA on his first day in office. Singapore well-honed relationship with the Democrats now lost until the Republicans lose power.

    And in 2019, Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% since 2002 – 16 years. This is a clear example of the FAILURE OF THE 4 INITIATIVES CREATED BY LEE KUAN YEW FOR HIS INHERITORS AS HIS LEGACY. The most important is the TPPA/CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays Killer.

    Here is the headline as published by the NSTP on May 25 2017 concerning the most senior Malaysian negotiator of the Lee Kuan Yew created TPPA whose husband is the chief Singapore Business Times journalist stationed in Kuala Lumpur..

    ” MALAYSIA MUST NOT QUIT ” Tan Sri Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, former international trade and industry secretary general. She was the Chief Negotiator for 19 secret negotiations until exposed by the media.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Our beloved Malaysia’s problems have been caused by betrayal, treachery and greed between 2004-2018 under the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    I find your that your perspective on Singapore is more personal than mine, which probably clouds your better judgement. It is contradictory at times, but interesting nonetheless. Stay with it and keep it up.
    And don’t worry about your opponents (i.e. vultures, bees, etc). It is quite normal and expected.

  73. mubarakchan May 13,2019 9:00 PM

    Tun

    It is interesting to note that this distinguished Blog attracts pro-Singapore elements like bees to honey or vultures to a carcass.

    First, we have that Syphilitic General Paresis fellow.

    Now after the biggest Ministry of Information in the World in a one-street town, armed with the ANTI-FAKE NEWS ACT seemed to conjure up another joker of a sub-Continent character. Good thing I too was in the sub-Continent when I was wearing short-pants.

    Has anyone noticed ? The Ministry of Information Singapore now has the MONOPOLY TO PRODUCE THE REQUISITE NEWS AS REQUIRED. No one else in the World can do so. FIRST IN THE WORLD AS USUAL.

    As far as I know, I was told many years ago that I have handlers in the Ministry of Information, Singapore who keep tabs on me and my comments since I first appeared here in your distinguished Blog. It crossed my mind what a waste of public money to keep tabs on so many, not only me.

    FOR TWIN PEAKS, WHY DON’T YOU SUGGEST ACADEMIC RESEARCH TO THE YEMENIS ?

    Malaysia BOleh Tun as always. No problem. Your Way is the Way. In you we trust because your steadfastness, common sense and integrity lead the Way. Acheh !

  74. twinpeaks May 13,2019 4:16 PM

    “How to do research when there is no food on the table ? Hence, as I always said the smartest 1% of the academic population will succeed by finding a niche in this Wide World be it Singapore or USA.”

    Well, that is precisely my point, isn’t it? You don’t want the smartest 1% of Malaysians do end up in Singapore or USA, because you want them to stay here. What is the point of nurturing the cream of your population from the time they can read and write, only to be poached by other countries after they graduated from your own universities? Thank you very much Malaysia for having spent all your taxpayers money on developing your top 1% so that we can hire them to work for us and develop our economies.
    Look, if you don’t keep your 1%, that’s your choice. But just remember, you can forget about escaping the middle income trap, which countries like Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea have already done. Then 20 years later, you remember, gosh.. we should have kept the top 1% here to do research in our country because now our people have nothing to eat on the table, because we have lost all our jobs to Vietnam and Indonesia.

  75. mubarakchan May 13,2019 12:28 PM

    Tun

    I am certain that you are like me who are not put off by high-sounding issues of the academic kind.

    I have been intimately involved with such matters from top to bottom since 1960. Such issues can only arise from a sound and prosperous Malaysian Economy which is well-planned and sustained – like during your 22 Year Administration which brought about private colleges and universities.

    These are the facts of the creation of academics talent suitable for research if any. Academic research like Fine Arts come very late in a Developing or Emerging Country because issues like jobs and food on the table as emphasised by DSAI hold true in each and every one of the Emerging Countries. How to do research when there is no food on the table ? Hence, as I always said the smartest 1% of the academic population will succeed by finding a niche in this Wide World be it Singapore or USA. Just look at those parachutists dropping into the LLB or MA courses of the University of Cambridge.

    Singapore only promoted the Fine Arts in 1992.

    Hearsay without the facts is misleading and should not be propagated in any forum.

    The fact is that after 13 May 1969 there has been an outflow of talent academic or otherwise for reasons best known to themselves. And the outflow of these talents should not be attributed to only the circumstance prevailing in our country. There may be many other reasons.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  76. twinpeaks May 13,2019 9:43 AM

    By the way, I was not splitting hairs when I mentioned that our post-graduate research students are continually lured overseas, including Singapore and the USA. It is Actually a serious matter. Possibly the most critical missing part of the jigsaw as far as our own quest for a post-industrial knowledge economy is concerned.

  77. mubarakchan May 13,2019 9:16 AM

    Tun

    There have been so much loose talk about Singapore’s Scholarships, outflow of talents, etc. Here are some real facts which I noted from my friends billionaires and all.

    1. Since the beginning of time, there has been no barrier to trade between the Straits Settlements and Malaya. Commercially, Malaya has been the romping ground for Straits commercial interests.

    2. There was no mind-set affecting the older generation of Singaporeans vis-a-vis the Malayans.

    3. It was only after 1965, the unique mind-set of the Singaporeans began to take root. Even then, the older generation treated KL as one.

    4. The first brain-washing of the Singaporean Mind came with the slogan, The Rugged Society. Thereafter, a series of other slogans followed like ‘Smile today’ etc.

    5. My friend’s teenager got a Singaporean Scholarship. His child was monitored all the time. At the end, his child did not get a place in a Tertiary institution and returned to enter the University of Malaya. The child has now got a job with a bank.

    6. There are at least 20,000 Singaporeans happily living and working quietly in Malaysia. Penang is an attraction. Major Malaysian malls have many Singaporean owned shops which permit the owners to sell their written off Singapore goods in KL. I know of a Singaporean lady tailor who has lived in KL for years.

    7. There is a Bukit in KL where a couple of rich Singaporeans have their Malaysian families. This cross-border relationship has been in place for decades. Likewise, some rich Malaysians install their SIA friends in Singapore under similar circumstances. For those who are curious, just take a 1st Class SIA flight to Singapore on Fridays and return at 9 a.m. on Mondays.

    8. There is even a Singaporean kindergarten in the Bukit in KL.

    9. I was not only bemused but shocked when the Senior Immigration Officer told me that up to the 21st Century, the immigration records were not computerised. And on the eve of every festive holidays like Christmas, the doors of the Johor Baru Immigration gates were thrown wide open for Singaporeans to rush home without stamping their passports.

    10. There was no restriction on travel at the Causeway until after 13 May 1969. The restricted Passport came into operation in 1970. It was discovered that the Singaporean gangsters came into Malaysia during 13 May 1969 and before.

    11. By 1972, Singapore could register 2,000 gangsters. As a result, these gangsters check into Johor Baru at 9 a.m. and check-out for home at 5 p.m. And Singapore became gangster free which gave rise to some snide remarks in the early 1980s by s Singaporean big-wig.

    12. The bookie system between Malaysia and Singapore is as one unofficially which is actively operated every week-end.

    13. My elder sister and our aunt was travelling in a packed bus along South Bridge Road, Singapore in 1948. A Chinese school boy in a white uniform with epaulettes stood up and gave his seat to our aunt. That was in 1948. In 2019, I still remember this kind deed of a Singaporean. I doubt if any Singaporean will do the same to-day.

    14. It was Singaporean Politics which mentally divided Singapore from Malaysia. Pre-1965, for years as far as I could remember, there were many sporting activities between the 2 places. But hardly any cross-border events today.

    15. With Malaysia finally broke its chain of bondage from the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs, all the Rakyat are united to push the Malaysian Wheel to success especially with the coming of the KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT which will serve as far North as the proposed Isthmus of the Kra Canal in South Thailand about 400 Km away.

    Where else but Malaysia ? Who to lead our beloved Malaysia but our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as Politics of any kind does not rear its ugly head.

  78. twinpeaks May 13,2019 9:11 AM

    Teresa May is struggling to keep her PM post as I write.
    Singapore. Yes, it rather difficult to sustain a high GDP growth when you are already at the top of your game. Man City won the Premier League last night.. just by a point above Liverpool. Like Singapore, admittedly its management had done a lot of unfair things including an ‘unfair’ (to others below them, not Man City) sums on its players, training ground, academy and so on. It’s the results that count, that’s what people remember the team for. Liverpool (sorry fans!) may get the most incredible team of the season award, but they haven’t touched the title for as long as their fans can remember.. that’s what really counts in the end.. the trophy cabinet.
    Singapore in the 1970s was utterly underdeveloped, but they have dragged themselves up. How? It doesn’t matter… the results are what people look at. I am sure that if the PAP leaders had committed unspeakable crimes against their own people like the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution era in China, the people of Singapore would have staged a coup against the PAP government without us telling them to. As far as I know, they adore PAP even today. True, they have a speaker’s corner that is only in name, but bad news spread on the web and I don’t think Singaporeans cannot assess their own situation.
    Furthermore, the Cold War was a time when everyone had to take sides. Singapore and Malaysia were both part of the Western alliance (i.e. the FPDA). Japan also profited massively during the Korean War, as did Thailand during the Vietnam War. In Sabah, KK has a submarine base.. the Cold War is still on, by the way.
    Anyway, back to ourselves. We need to do some serious soul-searching. There is no point blaming others for our own misfortunes. And it is never too late to change our ways of doing things. Learn what we did wrong and move on. That’s a more productive way of making progress.
    For instance, our agricultural root hinders rural folks, so we need to move on. Amalgamate the small holdings, industrialise massively, and relocate to the urban areas. That’s how it was done in today’s western industrialised countries.. the very group that we want to join. Only that they started this process in the Nineteenth Century.

  79. mubarakchan May 13,2019 12:47 AM

    Tun

    I totally disagree with those who propound the success of Singapore today based on attracting our talent by offering them more salaries.

    This is like splitting hairs. Malaysian talent has been going overseas after 13 May 1969. There was another wave of talent emigrating beginning the early 1980s. With a steady outflow during the regime of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs 2004-2018.

    At this moment and for sometime I have friends who were banking executives in Singapore now become taxi-drivers.

    Singapore’s GDP collapsed in 2002 and went into a technical recession. The GDP never breached 3% from 2002 – 2017. Why ? Because the 21st Century World is a MULTI-POLAR WORLD IN WHICH SINGAPORE COMPETES AGAINST THE REST OF THE WORLD. With her 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50, Singapore has no talent. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population. 2011.

    And what made Singapore so wealthy in the 20th Century and not the 21st Century in which Singapore has all the glittering buildings and other assets which I can see.

    How many Malaysians know there are two parts to the Singapore Success Story in the 20th Century.?

    1. The First Part concerns the employment of Dr Albert Winsemius, the Dutch UN economics expert who was the Advisor to the Singapore Government from 1962-1984. He was responsible for the Bedok, Changi reclamation, the Jurong Industrial Park, the GLCs, Asian Dollar, the glittering buildings etc.

    2. The Second Part was very profitable to Singapore which was the trades which do not come under the ambit of normal trades. This huge profit pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First. But this lucrative unmentionable trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 was condoned by Uncle Sam in a World which was starkly divided into black and white. After the Cold War, Uncle Sam came out with his hegemonic spiel, ‘Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights’ which benefitted the BRICS which grabbed all of Singapore’s lush Cold War unmentionable trades within her ambit since 1948.

    Singapore saw the light and Goh Chok Tong was despatched to India in the early 1990s to bring in the FTs with the hope that these would sustain the fizzy 7% GDP of Singapore in the 1970s and 1980s. With the advent of the FTs in the late 1990s to 2019, the FTs were like pushing Singapore’s GDP with a string. The GDP could not breach 3% for 16 years. And Singapore had been eating off the fat of its Cold War unmentionable trades. I reckon this has already gone down by 15-20%.

    Are the Malaysians aware that tiny Singapore with a population of about 2 million and a sleepy Colonial entreport up to the 1970s could attain a GDP of 7% right up to the 1980s AND NOT NOW WITH ALL THE PARAPHERNALIA OF A MODERN STATE ? Think ! Magic show ? Rabbits out of a hat.? Unmentionable Cold War trades ? Why no Nobel Prize for Lee Kuan Yew ?

    Do the Malaysians understand why the Singapore Government kept on raising taxes now and then ? Go to Singapore and have a look-see.

    Nearly all Singapore multi-billionaire families except for one, made their fortunes outside of Singapore especially in Malaysia. There are literally no opportunities to be rich in Singapore eg. HYFLUX.

    And the SGX is illiquid and lacklustre. Many Hong Kong people told me that they made a mistake by listing on the SGX.
    T
    THE GREATES HOPE OF THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT WAS THE TPPA A DEVICE SPECIALLY CRAFTED TO KILL OFF MALAYSIA AND HER SMEs by Lee Kuan Yew when the 2002 technical recession hit the Republic. Strangely, the Chairman of the Malaysian SMEs supported the TPPA and was ennobled thereafter with a Tan Sri-ship !

    4 Initiatives were crafted around 2002 by Lee Kuan Yew. Temasek, FT imports, 2 casinos and the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPPT. All failed to deliver in a meaningful way by 2019. These legacies for the inheritors of Lee Kuan Yew became nought. How ?

    Strangely, Singapore reverted back to the 20th Century Policies of Lee Kuan Yew to try to OVERLORD Malaysia since 9 May 2018. At the end of the day which is now, Malaysia has become 1 of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    WHAT SOME HAVE FORGOTTEN SO QUICKLY IS THAT THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCs DID NOTHING IN TERMS OF THE SORT OF REAL DEVELOPMENT WHICH WERE IN PLACE IN MALAYSIA FROM 1957-2003. For 14 years, One Trillion Ringgits flowed out of the country 2002 to 2010. Another RM 500 Billion flowed out from 2011 to 2018. No money to develop, how ? Vide. UN Reports.

    For those who want to know more on the RISE and FALL of Singapore, I refer them to the http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives September 2010, ‘ Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’. To further their intimate knowledge of Singapore, I invite them to live in Singapore too.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. If there are still admirers of Singapore which success was engraved in stone in the 20th Century. But the upshot is MOST CHINESE I MEET THESE DAYS HAVE A NEGATIVE VIEW OF SINGAPORE. Anyone who thinks to the contrary must be from Mars.

  80. twinpeaks May 12,2019 4:31 PM

    It seems rather off-topic to discuss about Malaysia’s economic development in this area. Perhaps a new thread by Tun especially for this purpose is timely. In any case, I wish to highlight that Kulim International Airport is an important catalyst to future economic success of the Northern Region and Malaysia. But that’s all it is, really.. a catalyst. The real mover is actually human resource, not infrastructure. That was the reason why Penang lost 30,000 tech jobs to China in the period 2000-03.. because it could not compete with the low wages in China (and Vietnam and India). So we have to upgrade to the higher end of E&E. But here is the problem. Intel (the world’s largest chipmaker) said they moved their Assembly and Test Devt Unit back to the Arizona because wafer fabrication and assembly lines must be close together. That was a valid reasoning, but it also underscores the inherent weakness of our E&E and other hi-tech sectors, and will unhinge our progress to escape the middle-income trap.
    Take a look at Singapore. Say what we want about them, but they are draining our country of our own top scientists ! Do you know that under our noses, Singapore is luring Malaysian post-graduates with lucrative future.. ample research funds and superior living conditions. We are paying our researchers just RM2,500 a month whereas they can get at least 5 times that amount over there. Most of their scientists are from here.
    So, if we are very serious about entering the biotech sub-sector for instance, we need our scientists to stay here. We don’t need to build world-class infrastructures like the MSC. Leave that to the private sector. Focus on education – schools and higher education. Put more money into research. Then the private sector will come in droves.

  81. mubarakchan May 12,2019 12:36 PM

    Tun

    This is a great morning for all in our beloved Malaysia.

    The increasing support for your New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great now in full song as exemplified by the huge landslide by-election result in Sandakan.

    And the prospect of an important and socio-economic NUB which is the KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – the finest next to the Singapore Changi Airport because Singapore always insists they are NUMERO UNO even their chilly crabs (Indonesian or Sri Lankan) and Hainanese Chicken (Malaysian) Rice.

    We will certainly not dispute Singapore’s claims which they deserve as propagated by their huge Ministry of Information now armed with the Anti-Fake News Act. Kudos to Singapore.

    My hat off to the GENIUS who had the IDEA to create the all-important KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – an essential nub to kick-start socio-economically the whole Northern Region and beyond via the Peninsula to Sabah and Sarawak.

    THIS IS THE WAY TO GO AS YOU ARE AWARE TUN.

    From the beginning our beloved Malaysia had always progressed socio-economically through infra-structural developments with great success until our beloved Nation was brought down onto her knees WITH THE COMING OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND THE GLCs. 2004-2018.

    DURING THIS PERIOD ALL THE GOODIES MEANT FOR THE RAKYAT WERE SEEN DEFYING GRAVITY BY FLOWING UPWARDS TO THE APEX OF THE POWER PYRAMID. The Rakyat could only bear this injustice with angst as the draconian laws forbid anything more.

    In a moment of madness, CASH IS KING ruled between 2004-2018 trailed by scavengers from Singapore looking for low hanging fruits, NSTP Editor’s Chair, rocks, steel rails and Malaysian KTM lands in Singapore. From these Malaysia ended up with half an office building !

    Fortunately, these were small losses compared to what our beloved Malaysia has become through your brilliant and courageous Leadership of a LIFETIME WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE !

    Not only that, our very own naysayers, troublemakers and detractors ALL SAY OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS NO HOPE OF BECOMING GREAT AGAIN.

    On this I dispute.

    WE THE RAKYAT FROM 3 ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS AND MORE, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN UPRIGHT AND NOBLE. With the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Non-caring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs on 9 May 2018, we Malaysians are our true-selves again – UPRIGHT AND NOBLE. Malaysians have NEVER been dwarfs or midgets stealing and cheating from the Government coffers.

    And as a consequence of all these events, Malaysia is now one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia.

    With the coming of the exciting development of the Northern Region, Malaysia, now full of hope and expectations, is fast trekking upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. Where else but Malaysia ? Who can deny this ?

    Comparatively ,’CASH IS KING’ has brought SHAME AND TRAGEDY TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA with the notions of wanton negativity encompassing gigantic hoards of CASH AND BRANDED GOODS in the abodes of those concerned. These days for the MACC to flush out 10,000 Rolex watches is no surprise, so to speak.

    BUT THE INERT GOODNESS AND COMMON SENSE OF ALL OUR MALAYSIANS PREVAILED
    And as such, the Rakyat will definitely be on the road to greater and better things for ALL.

    THE KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IS THE CAT’s EYE FOR ALL THAT IS GOOD AND ENDURING FOR THE NORTHERN REGION AND BEYOND VIA THE PENINSULA TO SABAH AND SARAWAK. No more. No less.

    With all the expected goodies to come for all the Rakyat, we must expect jealousy will appear from the expected quarters, thus :-

    THIS MORNING’S HEADLINE FROM SINGAPORE –

    ” MALAYSIA’S HOPES OF ECONOMIC REVIVAL UNDER MAHATHIR FADE. POLL ”

    That’s the problem with Singaporeans. Their elites have a mind-set of their own.

    Here is the reason why Malaysia has abundance of riches but were screwed up by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Non-caring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    If a person looks down whilst flying over France of England, he or she will notice that the land is already divided into patches like a quilted blanket. Over Canada, the land is divided into huge patches. This observation reveals that these Nations are fully developed.

    BUT IF A PERSON LOOKS DOWN FROM THE AIR OVER MALAYSIA, HE OR SHE WILL OBSERVE A WHOLE MASS OF GREENERY PUNCTUATED BY SMALL AND SCATTERED DEVELOPED LANDS HERE AND THERE. What does this tell us ? That MALAYSIA’S WEALTH IS FROM THE DEVELOPMENT OF ITS HUGE LAND MASS.

    And how many Malaysians know that all the State Excos’s job is TO CREATE WEALTH BY CONVERTING JUNGLE LAND AT 20 SENS PSF TO DEVELOPMENT LAND AT RM 2.80 PSF !

    From this fact, it is also sad to note the tragedy which affected the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites and the GLCs, 2004-2018. With such easy WEALTH why steal cash from the Government’s coffers ?

    AND THE FAKE HEADLINE THIS MORNING IS FROM SINGAPORE’S HUGE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION NOW ARMED WITH THE ANTI-FAKE NEWS ACT thus :-

    ” MALAYSIA’S HOPES OF ECONOMIC REVIVAL UNDER MAHATHIR FADE POLL ”

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    The KEY to our beloved Malaysia’s socio-economic success is the KULIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND THE NORTHERN REGION. No more. No less.

  82. mubarakchan May 12,2019 1:56 AM

    Tun

    Kudos to ‘Twin Peaks’ for expressing the true feelings about the huge movement of socio-economic change to come in the Northern Region which not only encompasses the States of Pulau Pinang, Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan. Trengganu and Northern Perak but also beyond through the whole Peninsula to Sabah and Sarawak.

    THIS IS THE WEALTH CREATION OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WHICH HAD STOOD US IN GOODSTEAD SINCE MERDEKA IN 1957 BUT OUR PROGRESS WAS BROUGHT DOWN TO ITS KNEES BY THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES ADN THE GLCs 2004-2018. 14 years of void.

    And if within 10-20 years, the Isthmus of Kra Canal comes into fruiton only 400 km away, the demand for goods and services from this Northern Region will be beyond belief.

    AND MALAYSIA TOGETHER WITH ITS NORTHERN STATES PENANG, KEDAH, PERLIS, KELANTAN, TRENGGANU AND NORTH PERAK WILL BE READY TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE FUTURE TO COME. There are 3 cogent reasons Thailand cannot hold back the construction of the Canal anymore, thus :-

    1. China’s Onward March of the Silk Road.

    2. Thailand cannot hold back not gaining US 6 Billion revenues anymore which is what the Suez Canal is now receiving.

    3. Peoples in the South of Thailand may not want to fight with the huge socio-economic success arising from the construction of the Canal. This peace momentum could spread to Acheh and Mindanao.

    Who wants to fight with hope, a full stomach, a family with a house and a job ? In these days of the Net, the whole World becomes BORDERLESS. Only the potential of hope, a full stomach, a family with a house and a job will PEACE HARMONY AND PROSPERITY PREVAIL anywhere in this tumultuous World.

    And for those who still cling on to the MINDSET of an Opposition group, it does not pay to hold back the earnest and enthusiastic DESIRE for socio-economic development for all the Rakyat at this hour of our Nation’s need which is to have SOMETHING TANGIBLE, PROFITABLE, CHEAP, FAST, EASY TO UNDERSTAND, ECO- AND RAKYAT FRIENDLY DEVELOPMENT ENCOMPASSING PENAND AND KEDAH and perhaps Kelantan with the reclamation of the sea later on.

    The sooner it is understood that the Penang State Government’s supporters and the Rakyat will BENEFIT IMMEDIATELY the better.

    The 3 mega Projects, 3 islands reclamation, the Tunnel and the Highway, loaded with mega billion ringgits loans and hampered by years of construction will DEFINITELY BE NON-STARTERS..

    Both sets of Proposals aim for the same object eg to raise Revenue for the Penang Government. But the 3 Mega Projects are cumbersome and difficult to execute beside time concuming over a span of decades.

    THE NEW PROPOSALS ARE CHEAP, EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND EXECUTE, BASED ON EXISTING LANDS, ECO AND RAKYAT FRIENDLY. THE BEST OF ALL IT IS THE CREATION OF MONEY WITHOUT MONEY. Most importantly, supporters of the Penang State Government and the Rakyat get immediate benefits.

    IT IS FORTUNATE THAT THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE, HAS A PRIME MINISTER WHO IS VERY ADAPT AT MAKING U-TURNS. This is the reason why our beloved Malaysia still requires his services of a LIFE-TIME EXPERIENCE that it is not a shame to admit a MISTAKE AND DO THE U-TURN IN THE NATIONAL INTERST AND NOT SELF-INTEREST.

    It is only by realising one’s mistakes. that a person or a country can progress.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We now can see the HUGE WEALTH CREAIION EXERCISE WITHOUT MONEY IN THE NORTHERN REGION TO COME. Time is of the Essence ! Kulim International Airport – (kudos to the GENIUS who thought this one out) – is the NUB with the World’s Finest Holiday and Leisure Resort, Penang and Kedah, – multi-activities and the Finest Eco-tourism by its side.

    WHERE ELSE BUT PENANG AND KEDAH ? WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ? Keep smiling, Tun !

  83. twinpeaks May 11,2019 10:10 AM

    Regarding the Penang vs Kulim debate, I couldn’t have agreed more.
    Penang International Airport… either it should be relocated to Seberang Prai that is less congested, or Kulim should be the new air transport hub for the entire northern region of the Peninsula. And, if I may say so, (sorry Penangites), the new international airport at Kulim is a NATIONAL priority, political consideration aside, simply because much of the nation’s success over the last decades is due to the electrical and electronic sub-sector of our economy. The sub-sector is also extremely critical to our nation entering the future era of 5G technology. Malaysia is already miles ahead of its regional competitors in terms of volumes of E&E production. We have the critical mass to spearhead future innovation in this field. And we must not lose ground.
    So, let’s not argue endlessly about the location of the logistical hubs. It is simply logical that you need spacious land for a new modern airport. Besides, Penang port is already there, so let Kulim and Kedah get a fair share of development too. After all, Penang cannot do it alone, and the Penang government should realise that it can no longer think “Penang Only”. That is old thinking which can hinder not only its future development but the entire nation.
    So, Penang. LET GO. JUST LET GO ! And Tun, please speed up the completion of the Kulim International Airport.

    For those who had an interest in birds especially my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree, I report that they are still there but only began their daily chore at the sound of my unlatching the front door in the morning. These days these birds have learnt how not to sing their hearts out unlike previously. An occasional chirp or two will do these days. Not only Humankind, birds do learn fast how to malinger these days.

    And the most interesting headline in recent days – none of note today or yesterday, thus

    ” MINISTRY OF TOURISM SUPPORTS KULIM AIRPORT ” Kudos to the Minister.

    How many Malaysians realise given the rule of the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great, the Northern Region will bloom and boom within the next 10 years and definitely so before 20 years. The key States involved are Penang, Kedah and Kelantan reaching down to Taiping, North Perak.

    The nub is the Kulim International Airport which should be planned with 3 runways at the very beginning and potential to develop the requisite terminals 1, 2 and 3 as time permits.

    A full-fledged city should be planned around the Airport which should serve the 4 Northern States and North Perak.

    Land is plentiful in Kedah. But in Penang, WITHOUT THE REALIZATION OF TRANSFORMATION THROUGH WELL-PLANNED CHANGE, there is now a mental hiatus at the top State level whose mind-set seems to be in a strait-jacket – unable to rationalise or think out what is best for the State to gain revenue and the benefits for the Rakyat.

    In the early 1970s, one sibling of Lee Kuan Yew told me in no uncertain terms that Singapore will create WEALTH from its land by boosting its value through careful planning. But Singapore is not Penang, Penang is not Singapore.

    THE ONLY WAY PENANG CAN BOOST THE VALUE OF ITS LAND IS UTILISING THE EXISTING LAND AND NOT POUR BILLIONS OF RINGGITS TO CREATE MORE LAND. See the point, Dear Ladies and Gentlemen ?

    Therefore my New Proposals for Penang is not only cheap but practical, fast, easy to deliver and understand, no huge risky loans to bear, supporters and the Rakyat get immediate benefits, and importantly eco-friendly.

    For those who are unaware of what I am talking about, my Proposal for Penang to begin infra-structure works immediately to garner revenue WITHOUT BORROWING BILLIONS OF RINGGITS, are as follows :-

    1. Scrap the old Bayan Lepas Airport, the Tunnel and the Highway.
    2. Turn the old Bayan Lepas Airport into the New George Town, the finest tropical city in the World for business and holiday resort to be planned by the finest city planner in the World. This will attract tourists like the PETRONAS Towers. Many 100 storey buildings built.
    3. The Southern Border becomes a sandy beach a’la Honolulu, Hawaii, the Western Border for affordable and low cost housing at the foothills, the Northern Border is Sungei Keluang whilst the straits between Penang and Pulau Jerejak maybe filled in for a small regional airport and helicopters. A 4 luxury liners Terminal should be located between Pulau Jerejak and the southern tip of the island. With this huge creation of land which is now worth billions and billions of ringgits, the State Government does not need to borrow for its need.
    4. KOMTAR turned into a Budget and a 4 Star Hotel.
    5. Buildings in Old George Town renovated with State subsidies. Some Street pedestrianized. Trams and cycle lanes introduced.
    6. The 19th Century sewerage system modernised. The flood mitigation schemes augmented and placed underground if possible.
    7. All State Government Offices re-located to the New George Town. The commercial offices will follow. Traffic congestion defused.
    8. The Highway turned into a double track Japanese style country train between Tanjong Bungah, Western foothills, New George Town, Kulim, Butterworth, Sungei Patani.
    9. The Ferry upgraded to serve also Kedah, Langkawi, and North Perak.
    10 A fast train connects the New George Town and Kulim
    11..QUIT RENT AND ASSESSMENT IN OLD GEORGE TOWN SCRAPPED.
    12. Like this the POWER OF PENANG FITS INTO THE POWER OF KEDAH TO CREATE SUPER-POWER LEVERAGE FOR BOTH STATES, THE RICHEST TO COME. We do not require a rocket scientist from Singapore to think this out because Singapore is not Penang, Penang is not Singapore.
    13. Within 20 years, with the construction of the Isthmus of Kra Canal, the sky is the limit for boom time Penang, Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan, Trengganu and North Perak.
    14. Thai and Singapore investors will rush in.
    15. To facilitate employment, tourism, transport, water etc, a Joint Development Council of Penang and Kedah should be established.
    16. The supporters of the State Government and the Rakyat get their benefits NOW NOT IN 30 YEARS TIME.
    17. At the end of the day, Malaysia has the perfect fit of World Holiday Resort Penang and Kedah with its World Class eco-tourism and other facilities. Where else but Malaysia ? A Gemini Twin generating goodies in terms of employment and revenue 24 hours a day. Where else but Penang and Kedah ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Down with the naysayers, troublemakers, and detractors who now claim there is no excitement in the Malaysia economy. As you said it is just the MINDSET ! Keep smiling.

    Life is such a wonderful adventure despite all the vicissitudes which we have encountered along the journey. This I am certain you will concurr with me.

    Remember the occasion in April 2010 when I paid you a courtesy call at the Perdana Foundation – a time when the naysayers, the troublemakers and the detractors were pouring the finest quality vitriol on you ?

    I was extremely worried at the direction our beloved Malaysia was going as led by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the equally corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    People close to you have already warned me that you had left Politics for good. I did not bring this subject up. But what you said that morning intrigued me. You told me to write openly my feelings. It took me nearly a year to do so and to pick on a subject which no one dared to talk about – LEE KUAN YEW.and his Fables and Foibles without any personal connotations.

    Fast trek to the present – 9 May 2019.

    I DISAGREE TOTALLY THAT THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT OF THE OLD AND THE YOUNG, THE GOOD AND THE GREAT SHOULD PLUNGE SO SOON AFTER GAINING POWER INTO REFORMING COSMETIC ISSUES WHICH ARE

    1. ICERD – International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.

    2. ABOLITION OF THE DEATH PENALTY. To save a few murderers.

    3. ROME STATUTE

    4. REPEALING THE NATIONAL SECURITY ACT

    5. SEDITION ACT, PREVENTION OF CRIME ACT, PRINTING PRESSES AND PUBLICATIONS ACT AND ALL OTHER ACTS WHICH CONCERN SECURITY, TERRORISM AND THE MULTI-MEDIA.

    From my observations, the proponents of the abolishment of any Act have their heads in the West and their bodies in the East.

    THERE IS NO MENTION OF REVISING THE ESSENTIAL ACTS or bread and butter Acts, LIKE THE COMPANIES ACT 1965, THE BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967 AND THE TRUSTEES ACT 1949. These are the bread and butter Acts which concern the lives of our whole Nation of 31 Million.

    For example over 200,000 young Malays are bankrupt with another 100,000 young non-Malays together another over 300,000 bankrupts.

    In Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia, the Bankruptcy Act gives the bankrupts a second chance. But in Malaysia because of Corruption, the over 500,000 bankrupts are locked in by the old Act which had a new Attachment with no bankrupts when it came into operation in October 2017. The Minister responsible was a FAKE and it was alleged this person was influenced by share-brokers, banks etc which dare not do this in Britain, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. There was no revision of the Bankruptcy Act 1967 despite the fact that the INCUMBENT MINISTER OF LAW SAID IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT THAT BANKRUPTS ARE WELL LOOKED AFTER BY READING A FEW LINES FROM THE UNREVISED BANKRUPTCY ACT. Vide. The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018 ‘Bankruptcy Act not Revised’ and 2 May 2019 ‘Long Wait out of Bankruptcy By the next 15th GE, there will be nearly 1,000,000 bankrupts voting against the Incumbent Government which the Opposition will instigate.

    As DSAI commented that it is the provision of food on the table which is important. Not airy-fairy ideas or reforms to please foreign outsiders.

    Tun, as an experienced politician whose main interest was political activities concerning not only Malaysia but the World THAT THE MANIFESTO IS ONLY OF ONE DIMENSION ON PAPER. BUT IN THE PRACTICE OF REALPOLITIK ESEPCIALLY IN A UNIQUE COUNTRY LIKE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA, THE DIMENSIONS MAY BE AS MANY AS 5 OR MORE IN THIS 21ST CENTURY WORLD !

    And the factors which turned a ONE DIMENSION PROMISE ON A PIECE OF PAPER TO BE AFFECTED BY THE FOLLOWING BECOMES A PROBLEM :-

    1. The unique diversity of Humanity in Malaysia. Even the Chinese are not homogenous. There are Shanghainese, Hakkas, Hokkiens, Foochows, Cantonese, Hainanese, Teochews etc.

    2. The Communal Interest of each Community vis-a-vis the other.

    3. The Divide between Malaysians with different educational backgrounds.

    4. And the Religious Divide.

    5. Instigation by unfriendly neighbours

    6. THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL IN THIS SMALL WORLD, THE INTERNATIONAL EVENTS CONCERNING HUMANITY, FINANCE AND POLITICS. At this very moment, ALL MARKETS TURNED RED DUE TO THE DELIBERATE INSTABLITY CREATED BY THOSE WHO HAVE THE POWER TO DO SO.

    7. PRECEDENTS FROM OUR OWN MALAYSIAN HISTORY DATING RIGHT BACK CENTURIES.

    From the above, we have 7 dimensions to consider !

    Therefore, Tun, the proponents and pundits for QUICK QUICK REFORMS are out of touch with REALITY IN REALPOLITIKS OF THE MALAYSIAN KIND.

    Hence your valuable and unique experience of a Life-time in Malaysian Politics is without a peer as your steady and firm hand in leading the New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great now shows.- YOUR WAY FOR MALAYSIA TO BE NORMAL AND SUCCESSFUL.

    ALL YOUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS EFFORTS CAME AT THE RIGHT TIME TOO IN A ONCE WEALTHY BELOVED MALAYSIA RAPED OF ITS RAKYAT’S WEALTH BY THE TOP LEADERS OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMNET AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCs 2004-2018. The tragedy was that these LEADERS ARE THE HAVES AND NOT THE HAVE-NOTS !

    A financially raped and dying Nation which was Malaysia now given a second chance to recover back to her once WEALTHY AND NORMAL STATUS. Who else could do it but our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ? Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We are all with you with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    IN YOU WE TRUST ! Keep smiling !

    This morning my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls refused to chirp or sing in the young banyan tree. I only heard a few recalcitrant chirping notes. That was it. It was 6.59 a.m. I suppose even birds have their off days. But for this morning, an idea suddenly sprung up in my head.

    I have noted that pink cheek junior Deputy Ministers seemed to attract the attention of the journalists with absurd announcements like ‘nursery in the Dewan Rakyat,’ or ‘ a Bill to stop bottom pinching ‘ or ‘ stop building condos to improve the traffic ‘ or ‘ abolish death penalty for murderers or ICERD or anything that came to their minds but meant NOTHING.

    Now let us take the case of the Ministry of Information of the Republic Singapore – a one street town of a place.

    This Ministry of Information is huge compared with the size of Singapore. It employs ex-Malaysians from the former Straits Settlements of Penang and Malacca. It leaves no stone unturned in its promotion of the governing Government and its elites with the Policy of only broadcasting Singapore as the World’s Best in everything from the fire-brigade, Navy or the Military or the DBS or chilly Indonesian or Sri Lankan crabs, Hainanese chicken rice etc.

    But an important function is to spy on the sexual peccadilloes of visiting important or earmarked persons of interest or danger to Singapore which adopted this Communist tactic from its very beginnings.

    Lee Kuan Yew was always fearful of being dethroned from his perch. Any site to be visited by him in Singapore was scanned by a bomb disposal squad at least 100 metres or more for bombs in flower pots, trees, lamp-posts etc. Believe it or not ?

    However, by adopting part of the myriad functions of the Ministry of Information of Singapore, I reckon the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side can gain much at minimum cost thus :-

    1. ” TO EACH MINISTRY OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT, A PUBLIC RELATIONS UNIT CONSISTING OF JUST ONE MEDIA SAVVY PERSON AND A PHOTOGRAPHER BE ATTACHED TO THE MINISTER’S OFFICE. THE SOLE ROLE OF THIS UNIT IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE MINISTER’S DAILY FUNCIONS AND DEEDS ARE WELL-PUBLICISED BY THE MEDIA VIA PAPERS OR ON-LINE. THIS UNIT ALSO MONITORS THE TRUE PRESENTATION OF THE NEWS ON THE MINISTER. NO FAKE NEWS PERMITTED.” Like this, the Rakyat is well-informed and know which Minister belongs to which Ministry and what he or she looks like.

    As it is Deputy Ministers of no importance jump the queue and get their pictures all over the media with no real purpose. The Ministers should take the cake not these very junior Deputy Ministers.

    2. ” ALL MEDIA ESPECIALLY THE NEWSPAPERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PUT ASIDE AT LEAST A PAGE TO REPORT ON THE ACTIVITIES OF THE MINISTERS AND THEIR MINISTRIES EVERY DAY.”

    3. ” THE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION SHOULD BE ON-LINE WITH ITS OWN REPORTS OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE MINISTERS AND THEIR MINISTRIES SO THAT ALL AREAS OF THE PROPAGATION OF GOVERNMENT’S ACTIVITIES ARE KNOWN TO THE RAKYAT. NOW THE OPPOSITION TAKES THE OFFENSIVE ALL THE TIME AND THE GOVERNMNET ONLY REACTS ON AN AD HOC BASIS. Prevention is better than Cure.

    4. ” LEE KUAN YEW PLACED BRAIN-WASHING AS HIS NO.1 PRIORITY AS WE CAN DISCERN WITH THE MANY BRAIN-WASHED MALAYSIANS AROUND US BRAIN-WASHED BY HIM. AS A RESULT, THESE BRAIN-WASHED MALAYSIANS BELIEVE IN HIS FICTION OR BLUFFOLOGY AND NOT THE TRUTH OR FACTS.”

    With due consideration of propagating the GOOD WORKS AND HARD WORK OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT’S YBs AS LED BY OUR GOOD TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE, A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE AND APPRECIATION OF THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE SEEN IN A BETTER LIGHT BY THE RAKYAT.

    There is another function of the Ministry of Information Singapore which I DO NOT RECOMMEND WHICH IS TO MAKE VIPS AND IMPORTANT FOREIGNERS COMFORTABLE IN SINGAPORE SO THAT THEY HAVE A GLOWING IMPRESSION OF THE TINY PLACE. Believe it or not ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Each Ministry becomes PR effective with enhanced employment to project a good impression of the Minister and his Ministry to the Rakyat at minimum cost.

  88. mubarakchan May 7,2019 12:16 AM

    Tun

    I am certainly intrigued by the debates which have been gaining in intensity and momentum concerning the ‘Master Plan’ Development of Penang – A State which had fluctuating fortunes concerning its Rakyat and socio-economic well-being.

    From its British Colonial past to the present, we have noted that the ancient State of Kedah was suppressed in its developments so much so I thought it was a State with big green flies and nothing else. I must apologise humbly for this oversight !.

    For Penang which was once part of Kedah, to move forward in its mega developmenst whilst being only one of the 13 States of the Federation will be difficult because it will always need the Federal Government support as regards control and funds.

    I am equally intrigued that the State Government kept on harping on a ‘Master Plan’ for development which is well-out of date in relation to the fact that the present Federal Government is of the same political ilk as the State of Pulau Pinang. This political factor alone was a sea-change since 9 May 2018 and soon we will all be celebrating the 1st Anniversary of the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and the GLCs.

    To all and sundry, the Penang ‘Master Plan’ entails three important and core elements being the Tunnel, the Highway and the 3 reclaimed islands. All of which require billions of ringgits to achieve at a great cost to the environment and to raise the ire of the Rakyat.

    I have been following the ‘Master Plan’ for years and also I have been studying what made Singapore ticked since the end of the 2nd World War in 1945.

    As a person trained to observe and gather facts, I have been able to suggest alternative proposals which are much cheaper, practical, easy to do, faster and eco-friendly both to the environment and the Rakyat. And the best of all the supporters of the Penang State Government get immediate benefits. Hopefully like this, the present State Government will last for the next 60 years.

    Not many people are aware that I am a CONSTITUTIONALIST AND NOT A COMMUNALIST. I am not MCA or DAP. I support all incumbent Governments of the day. My ideas are within the ambits of Sovereignty and National Interest in the overall interest of all. Hence, my ideas or suggestions are for the COMMON GOOD WHICH ARE ENDURING AND NOT SELF-SERVING.

    Singapore’s achievements since the beginning of the Cold War in 1948 to its first recession in 2002 maybe attributed to 2 MAIN FACTORS :-

    1. THE BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES OF ARMS TRADING, SMUGGLING, MONEY LAUNDERING, TOADYING UP TO DICTATORS, SANCTIONS BREAKING, COLLECTING FREE VIETNAM WAR DEBRIS, US R & R, BUNKERING, AIR BASE, US AID etc. The huge profits garnered up to the end of the Cold War 1948-1989 for a tiny population of 2 million under an honest and authoritarian Government pushed Singapore from the 3rd to the 1st World. All these activities were under the aegis of Lee Kuan Yew. What has Penang got in this respect apart from a clean set of balanced books ?

    The BRICS grabbed all these goodies from Singapore after the end of the Cold War in 1989 due to Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel, ‘Globalization, Free Trade and Human Rights.’ which suited the BRICS to grab trade goodies to a T !.

    2. HAS ANY MALAYSIAN HEARD OF A DR ALFRED WINSEMIUS ?

    Winsemius was a UN economics Dutch expert who was appointed Adviser to the Singapore Government in 1962. He was the sole Adviser from 1962 to 1984 with Dr Goh Keng Swee as his alter ego in Singapore. Winsemius paid 2 visits a year to Singapore to see that his advice was followed and was always accompanied by his wife. He was only paid a meagre salary throughout. It was only in 2017 that a lane in Singapore was name in his honour. What did Winsemius do which made the elites of Singapore suppress his achievements ?

    Winsemius ideas created the Jurong Industrial Park, the sea reclamations off Changi and Katong, the Asian Dollar, the GLCs, the Changi Airport, the glittering buildings we see in Singapore today etc.

    The 2 MAIN FACTORS AS MENTIONED MADE UP THE SINGAPORE OF LEE KUAN YEW who was shrewd enough to get a UN economics expert to assist.

    Therefore, the POLITICAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC SCENARIO AFFECTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF PENANG TODAY IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT. As I said before Penang is not Singapore. Singapore is not Penang.

    My NEW PROPOSALS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF PENANG ARE AS FOLLOW WHICH IN NO MANNER REDUCE THE SUPPORT OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT OR BELITTLE IT BUT ONLY TO ENHANCE IT, HOPEFULLY FOR THE NEXT 60 YEARS> And for its supporters and the Rakyat the immediate benefits :-

    1. Scrap the 3 islands reclamation.
    2. Scrap the Tunnel.
    3. Scrap the Highway
    4. Scrap the old Bayan Lepas Airport.
    5. Turn the Airport into the World’s Finest City, the New George Town designed by the World’s best City Planner. To the south, the sea shore is turned into a sandy beach like Honolulu, Hawaii. To the western foothills, low-cost housing, Pulau Jerejak is flattened for a small regional airport for domestic flights and helicpters with a 4 luxury liners terminal. And the Sungei Keluang its northern border.

    The finest 100 storey hotels, offices and condos will be located here. The whole of the State Government offices as well.

    The new George Town will have trams, escalated walkways, etc. all planned for 21st Century living.

    The State Government will purchase or lease from the owner the Old Airport for a nominal price. Plots of lands should be sold after approval of the City Planner’s work.

    And some funds from the Federal Government to buy up as much land as possible around the Old Airport.

    Singaporean investors will be there first.

    6. KOMTAR turned into 2 hotels one budget, the other 4 star.
    7. Funds from the sale of the New George Town and Federal assistance to up-grade the 18th Century old George Town sewerage system and the flood mitigation schemes which should be underground if possible.
    8. Parts of Old George Town pedestrianized with trams to provide transport. The State will also up-grade the buildings there.
    9. The motor Highway turned into a double track Japanese country style train system from Tanjong Bungah, via the western foothills to the New George Town and goes on to Kulim, Butterworth and Sungei Patani.
    10. A super fast train connects the New George Town and Kulim
    11. Instead of the Tunnel, the Ferry is up-graded with larger ferries which also visit Kedah, Langkawi and Pangkor, Sitiawan, North Perak.
    12. A Joint Penang-Kedah Development Council set up to facilitate employment, water, transport etc.
    13. SCRAP THE QUIT RENT AND ASSESSMENT IN THE OLD GEORGE TOWN ! Who will not support the State Government on this for 60 years !
    14. No necessity to borrow huge funds at huge risks.

    Like this, Penang will become the World’s Finest Resort for Leisure by scrapping concrete. And Kedah also becomes the World’s Finest for Eco-tourism. All these could be achieved NOW and not tomorrow.

    BUT THE CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG SAID YESTERDAY, ‘PROPOSED MAN-MADE ISLANDS CRUCIAL FOR PENANG’S ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION.’

    Penang’s economic transformation is towards the HUGE TOURIST MARKET OF THE WORLD WHERE PENANG HAS NO RIVAL OR COMPETITOR, only Singapore ! The tourist money is good, useful and fast. The more the pushing. The more the revenue for the State Government. NO NEED RE-TRAINING OF EMPLOYEES ETC. All can serve the tourist industry immediately. Workers will flow into Penang from points South and Sabah and Sarawak. No need years of waiting for mega projects to be completed which DO NOT PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT.!.

    When the Isthmus of Kra Canal comes within 20 years, Penang and the Northern Region will boom beyond recognition. And if there is reclamation of the sea off Kota Baru, Kelantan ? THE TWO TWINS JUST JOIN HANDS AND BOOM TOGETHER.

    BOTH PENANG AND KELANTAN WILL BECOME THE RICHEST STATES OF MALAYSIA.

    Singapore did not rely on a FEASIBILITY STUDY TO SUCCEED TUN ! Their decision was POLITICAL and made in the NATIONAL INTEREST OF THE SINGAPOREANS.

    AND HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A FEASIBILITY STUDY WHICH SAYS NO, TUN ? On my part, I have never seen one.

    HENCE, A POLITICAL LEADER OR MASTER MUST MAKE THE POLITICAL DECISION FOR THE GOOD OF THE RAKYAT IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST WITHIN THE PRECEPTS OF SOVEREIGNTY unlike the irresponsible phrase ‘CASH IS KING’

    Tun, all your examples of original thinking like the N-S Highway, Putrajaya, PETRONAS Towers, KLIA, Proton, Crooked Bridge, Khazanah, Senai, Langkawi, Tioman, Pangkor, creation of tycoons, private colleges and hospital etc WERE ACTUALLY VERY GOOD AND SOUND CONCEPTS. But as we now see with a beautiful hind-sight, the digits let your sound concepts down. The closest aides were another sordid story. The concrete structures remain but the human digits have long since gone ! AND YOU DID NOT RELY ON A DUTCH ECONOMIC ADVISER !

    Let us all hope COMMON SENSE PREVAILS OVER WHATEVER INTERESTS, in the NATIONAL INTEREST IN PENANG’S FORAY TO GAIN MORE REVENUE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  89. mubarakchan May 5,2019 4:19 PM

    Tun

    There have been two interesting letters on the subject of dissatisfaction with the existing Bankruptcy Act 1967 which have appeared in The Star since 2018.

    1. The Star Letter to Editor 25 June 2018. ‘THE BANKRUPTCY ACT NOT REVISED.’

    2. The Star Letter to Editor 2 May 2019. ‘LONG WAIT OUT OF BANKRUPTCY’

    1. On the first letter, it was alleged that the BN Minister of Law succumbed to the influence of the private financial sector to punish the bankrupts in a 19th Century Victorian manner.

    Unlike Britain Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia which all give bankrupts a second chance without the crooked interference of private financial interests like in Malaysia – 2004-2018.

    On this score, by the next 15th GE there will be nearly 1,000,000 urbanised bankrupt voters who will undoubtedly be stirred up by the Opposition against the incumbent Government if NOTHING IS DONE TO BRING MALAYSIA’S BANKRUPTCY ACT UP TO DATE LIKE BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA where bankrupts are given a second chance.

    Our YB Minister of Law in the PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE, STOOD UP RECENTLY IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT TO ASSURE THAT THE BANKRUPTS ARE WELL LOOKED AFTER BY READING SECTIONS OF THE BANKRUPTCY ACT WHICH WAS NEVER REVISED AND BROUGHT UP TO DATE LIKE THAT IN BRITAIN, HONG KONG, SINGAPORE AND AUSTRALIA. With such a simple gesture, the YB MIinister THOUGHT HIS JOB WAS DONE CONCERNING OVER 500,000 SOULS WHO ARE BANKRUPT AND LOCKED IN A 19TH CENTURY VICTORIAN FASHION TO BE PUNISHED AS INFLUENCED BY THE PRIVATE FINANCIAL SECTOR AS ALLEGED. So simple, YB ?

    To highlight this fact, at present there are over 200,000 young Malay bankrupts and over 100,000 young non-Malay bankrupts which add on to the over 300,000 older bankrupts. This voters will definitely vote against the incumbent Government with the support of the Opposition.

    3 BN Ministers of Law did nothing to ease the sufferings of the young bankrupts which is an opportunity lost for them to contribute meaningfully to the National economy. They just sat at home doing nothing.

    Of course, the last BN Minister of Law bluffed the bankrupts with an amendment attached which law only began to function after October 2017 ! This meant the new Attachment began with NO Bankrupts but only after October 2017. All the bankrupts were corralled in the unrevised 19th Century style Bankruptcy Act of 1967.

    But the 1982 Marriage Reform Law was fair and just. ALL MARRIAGES BEFORE 1982 WERE RECOGNISED UNLIKE THE FAKE BANKRUPTCY ACT OF THE BN GOVERNMENT !

    CAN THIS BN BLUFFER REALLY SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT BY NOT ONLY BLUFFING OVER 200,000 YOUNG MALAY BANKRUPTS BUT ANOTHER 300,000 OTHER BANKKRUPTS AS WELL ?

    2. On the second letter of justifiable complaint, this has to do with the archaic set-up of the DEPARTMENT OF INSOLVENCY.

    There have been complaints brought to my notice about this Department of Insolvency during the regime of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and the GLCs. 2004-2018. The assorted complaints were :-

    1. There were CORRUPTION IN THE DEPARTMENT OF INSOLVENCY in different forms by the digits in control of the System.

    2. ONLY ONE MEETING A YEAR TO DISCHARE THE BANKRUPTS OUT OF A TOTAL OF 400,000 OR MORE ! Only one meeting a year Tun !!! This was the cause of the alleged complaint of the second letter mentioned here. A BOTTLENECK IS CREATED TO FESTER CORRUPTION TO GET THE FIRST HEARING IN A ONCE A YEAR MEETING.

    It is time any Government of the Federation should take cognizance of its treatment of the disadvantaged not only of the aged, single mothers, orphans, drug addicts but also the BANKRUPTS.

    EXCEPT FOR MALAYSIA, THE OTHER COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD OF A SIMILAR ILK DO GIVE THEIR BANKRUPTS A SECOND CHANCE.

    It is time for the New and Incorruptible Government to GET RID OF ALL PRIVATE FINANCIAL INTERESTS INFLUENCE LIKE SHAREBROKERS, BANKS ETC like Britain, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia concerning the revision of the Bankruptcy Act.

    IT IS TIME TO GET RID OF CORRUPTION IN THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM ONCE AND FOR ALL.

    The 1,000,000 Malaysian bankrupts if ORGANISED WILL BE A FORMIDABLE VOTING FORCE TO BRING DOWN ANY INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT IN THE NEXT 15th GE.

    Please take note YB Minister of Law in the Prime Minister’s Office. This is a bread and butter issue not those airy-fairy, Anti Bottom Pinching , Constitution Amendments, No Death Penalty for Murderers Bills etc.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as the New and Incorruptible Government puts its heart where it should be concerning the aged, single mothers, orphans, drug addicts, bankrupts etc.. Acheh !

    After so many months, my feather friends are still with us nesting in the young banyan tree. As the Sun appears earlier in the summer, so too did these songsters which began to chirp and sing at 6.45 a.m. These are not governed by the clock but by the natural sunlight unlike our Humankind who can also work at night on an overtime basis, of course ! I was amused that the YB Minister of Agriculture remonstrated with the Rakyat not to take your pointed comment seriously.

    The interesting headlines thus

    1. ” A WASTE IF MINISTERS DON’T TAP DR M’S EXPERIENCE.”

    As I suggested before, JUST AN HOUR WITH THE PM MONTHLY BY REPORTING THE UP-DATES OF A MINISTRY WILL DO THE TRICK. How many Ministers care to do this ?

    2. ” MALAYSIA OUT TO RETRIEVE RM 29 BILLION IN MISAPPROPRIATE FUNDS FOR 1MDB SAYS DR M. ”

    A special Unit should be set-up in the Ministry of Finance with a complement of the MACC, PDRM, LHDN, BNM etc to retrieve the stolen money overseas no matter how long it will take.

    I refer all to the following publication, “THE DESPOT’S GUIDE TO WEALTH MANAGEMENT: ON THE INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN AGAINST GRAND CORRUPTION” by Jason Sharman. Cornell University Press. Excerpt from the book –

    ” WHEN POLITICAL LEADERS STEAL FROM THEIR NATION’S COFFERS THE THEFT IS CALLED KLEPTOCRACY ”

    ” OF COURSE, MANY MORE CORRUPT LEADERS GET AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES THAN FACE JUSTICE. BUT THE EXPECTATION THAT HOST COUNTRIES HAVE A DUTY TO TAKE ACTION IS A NEW AND IN MANY WAYS, REALLY REMARKABLE DEVELOPMENT.”

    ” WATCH THIS SPACE.THIS COMBINATION OF GLOBAL RULES LEGISLATED ‘FROM ABOVE’ WITH A POWERFUL UPSURGE OF DEMAND SFOR ACCOUNTABILITY ‘FROM BELOW’BRINGS WITH IT THE POTENTIAL FOR WIDESCALE AND UNPREDICTABLE CHANGE.”

    See what the terrible Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs have brought to the World !

    3. ” PROTON SELLS 7,011 CARS IN APRIL IN SECOND SPOT FOR FIRST TIME SINCE FEB 2016.”

    Finally, Proton has shed off all the crooked closest aides who made millions of ringgits by padding the 5 wheel rims per car.

    Selling 100,000 cars per year meant making crooked money at say charging RM 100 more per rim = an extra corrupt RM 500 per car.

    For 100,000 cars, this accrued to RM 50,000,000 for the crooked closest aides. And this is just for one single item.

    Then the factory wastes were sold at hundreds of thousands ringgits monthly.

    ALL THESE STOLEN MONEY BELONGED TO THE GOVERNMENT AND THE RAKYAT.

    Evidence of all these corrupt money is to be found owning public listed companies, acres of land at Bukit Tunku, Kuala Lumpur, Stradivarius violins, banks etc. I just cannot imagine a serious manufacturer doing these crooked thefts !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    It is good very good that any piece of good news is shared amongst all of us Malaysians.

    And this morning like any other good morning even my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree began their normal chore at 6.45 a.m as soon as I opened the front door.

    What a wonderful accompaniment to the beginning of another lively day in our beloved Malaysia ! Such is Life as I and others like your good self see it too.! And here is the verbatim record of good tidings from the Nikkei Asian Review today thus

    Quote, ” MALAYSIA PMI RISES IN APRIL.

    Nikkei Malsysia Purchasing Manager’s Index or PMI move from 47.2 in March to 49.2 in April recording its highest since September 2018. Recordings above 50 indicate an expansion while those below 50 points to a contraction. The improvement was supported by foreign demand. New export orders rose for the first time in 5 months from. US, Singapore and Japan. Healthy export demand eased sentiments. Business confidence about production in the year ahead reached its highest level since October 2013.

    The PMI suggests that ‘manufacturing’ should help drive faster economic growth to just over 5% at the start of the second quarter. ” Unquote.

    How many Malaysians took note of this good piece of news for our beloved Malaysia under your Leadership, Tun ?

    It is not the first swallows which make the Indian Summer. But the first arrival of news of good tidings which will return gradually and eventually our beloved Malaysia back to her rightful place in the Sun after our horrendous experience of wanton Corruption by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and the GLCs 2004-2018. These solid data can only be achieved from honesty and hard-work over time which as reported spanned over only 10 months, 9 May 2018 – 31 March 2019 after 14 years 2004-2018 of wanton self-destruction by those in POWER.

    Kudos to the New and Incorruptible Government with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    More good news will come with the strong US economy.

    Unfortunately, palm oil is on the weak side due to EU politics. Otherwise all is well. Our job is now to create more jobs for all and this would begin with the ECRL, Bandar Malaysia, the New Proposals for Penang etc In these we trust your Leadership.

    SUCCESS FOR YOU AND ALL IS JUST A WHISPER AROUND THE CORNER, TUN.

    Two interesting headlines this morning, thus :-

    1. ‘ ZURAIDA TO HELM CHINESE NEW VILLAGES ‘

    2. ‘ PROPERTY OVERHANG CONTINUES TO INCREASE ‘

    YB Zuraida is my favourite lady Minister. She talks sense all the time which means she thinks sense all the time.

    This is good for a person who is a Minister to lead and implement Policies to produce the right results which benefit the Rakyat. I am certain she will succeed where GENERATIONS OF MCA BIG WIGS FAILED.

    As with social matters, the pitfalls are many due to the ineffective and incompetent MCA Leaders in the later years of the 20th Century as the young and dynamic MCA leaders of the 1950s and the 1960s grew old. This attrition of the MCA leaderships in the New Villages was compounded by the emigration of the young to the towns to earn a better living. Now, the New Villages are full of aged folk who are waiting to live their days out.

    Age old issues like citizenships, land titles, red ICs, empty schools, non-existent public facilities, clinics etc are the works cut out for the YB Minister who I feel is the right person for this job. Even if YB Minister is able to move this mountain one inch, this should be consider a great success – such is the task which lies before her.

    KUDOS TO THE PRIME MINISTER TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE AND THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT FOR THIS VISIONARY AND REALISTIC APPOINTMENT OF YB MINISTER ZURAIDA to this important socio-economic job which will be a template for all RURAL VILLAGES TO COME.

    2. As expected the over-hang in surplus residential properties all over the country must be the responsibility of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and the GLCs 2004-2018.

    The modus operandi in China is the same as in Malaysia but it is larger by at least 1,000 times. In practice, the political socio-economic system is similar. Hence the pitfalls are similar.

    What to do ? We cannot sit around doing nothing. The banks must be fidgety too. And the developers, the Johnny-come-lately who are caught at the lower reaches of the downturn, would have sold NOTHING.

    Of course there are cogent reasons for the New and Incorruptible Government to hold back the requisite stimuli until its coffers are back to a normal keel and also its supportive policies with the banks are firm and strong.

    But between the devil and the deep blue sea, I suggest that JOINT PROMOTIONS OF UNSOLD PROPERTIES BY BOTH THE GOVERNMENT AND THE DEVELOPERS SHOULD BE LAUNCHED IN CHINA, INDIA, MIDDLE EAST, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG ETC AS RECOMMENDED by those in the know as soon as possible. The money spent will be miniscule but the returns if sales are achieved are laudable. IN OTHER WORDS, AN INTENSIVE PR EXERCISE TO SELL IS A GAP WHICH MAY HAVE TO BE FILLED IN THE INTERIM PERIOD.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun,

    I wonder if the Penang State Government is savvy enough to realise that by closing down the Bayan Lepas Airport, it could be turned into a GOLD MINE for the State ? It is like this.

    1. The Federal Government will be pleased that the Bayan Lepas Airport close down because this will give an added flip to the Kulim International Airport which becomes a full-fledged airport with all the services and facilities.

    2. As a second step, the Penang State Government either purchase or obtain a 99 year lease from the owner of the Bayan Lepas Airport land say at RM 1 Billion.

    3. The State then sell off the purchased or leased land on a 99 year lease for a profit. This should accrue to billions of ringgits in the near future.

    4. The State obtains a long term Loan from the now accommodative Federal Government to buy up all the FTZ lands and whatever property is available adjoining the old Bayan Lepas Airport.

    5. The State on sells the non-Bayan Lepas lands to private investors for a profit.

    6. All the profits from the sale of the Bayan Lepas and non-Bayan Lepas lands by the State are channelled to the upgrading of the old George Town sewerage works and the flood mitigation schemes.

    7. All the State Government buildings in the Old George Town will be re-located to the New George Town. Others will automatically follow.

    8. Federal financial assistance is sought for the Japanese country style train which runs along the Highway between Tanjong Bungah and circuitously via the New George Town, Kulim International and Butterworth.with possible extensions to Sungei Patani.

    9. Scrap all Quit Rent and Assessment in the Old George Town.

    10. Supporters of the Penang State Government are given opportunities in the New George Town literally immediately. Where else but the New George Town ?

    11. Penang becomes one of the richest States in Malaysia and becomes the Numero Uno of the Holiday Resort and Leisure of the World without much effort, money and time.

    12. The Rakyat will be delighted with this NEW APPROACH BY THE PENANG STATE GOVERNMENT which should rule for the next 60 years.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No more problem. Keep smiling. Another feather of achievement in your cap by your New and Incorruptible Government.

    Tun

    Even though this morning is overcast with foreboding grey clouds which threaten to rain, to me it was another wonderful morning in a land blessed with all the good and normal things one would expect in our beloved Malaysia.

    Even our friendly and chirpy bulbuls got up earlier than usual at 6.49 a.m. and began the chore of chirping and singing having disappeared for a few days from the young banyan tree probably to China like some of our distinguished Malaysians.

    Due to a dire lack of interesting headlines this morning which means we are slowly getting back to a normal day’s work without any fake news manufactured by the Opposition media, I will raise my own topic which is :-

    ” Are the Malaysians aware how fortunate we are that the People’s Republic of China as led by President Xi Jin-ping is pushing forward with the Belt and Road Initiative.”

    Unlike any other Aid which was promoted by the United States in the distant past, China promoted the Belt and Road Initiative as a joint venture between Sovereign Nations. This is the best formula for development for all the Nations which fall within the ambit of the Belt and Road Initiative.

    But if a country is led by a gang of crooks, then, who can blame China who is not the policeman for the World’s morals.

    For example, our beloved Malaysia was nearly sold off to Singapore via the TPPA/CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays Killer and over-padded the ECRL by RM 20 Billion which is a lot of the Rakyat’s money, by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs 2004-2018.

    With the launch of both the ECRL and the Bandar Malaysia, the vital stimuli for our beloved Malaysia are not only in place but seen to begin to work immediately. The fall-out from these two Projects will trigger other developments as yet unknown.

    As far as I know, there are already foreign interest in hotel developments in Melaka and points beyond. Surely, the Singaporean investors are not far behind in 2019 ?

    We should not expect the Bursa to show much vitality these days as it is hampered by over-development by the construction companies which are likewise having to regain confidence and rapport again with the New and Incorruptible Government within 12 months, the low price of petroleum which hits the bunch of small companies over-dependent on one customer PETRONAS. Similarly the plantation companies are affected and compounded by the hideous corruption in the FELDA Group. The rest of the Bursa companies are small and cater to a select few only. With this scenario, an investor cannot expect the financials to move at all in the near future.

    Hence, against this dim background of Malaysia’s financial well-being we have a couple of strong points which have arisen since 9 Nay 2018 :-

    1. THE TOTAL ABSENCE OF THE STENCH OF CORRUPTION AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT.

    2. THE RE-ENGAGEMENT WITH THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA ON NORMAL TERMS WHICH GIVE RISE TO THE ECONOMIC STUMULI TO COME eg. THE ECRL AND THE BANDAR MALAYSIA.

    With the lead characters now in place and in play, it is up to States like Penang whether the Singapore Copy-cat Master Plan should be scrapped and go for a practical, cheap, fast and friendly Rakyat and environment Development Plan or not is the S$ 1 question ? Or is Selangor brave enough to amalgamate Petaling Jaya, Subang and Sunway into a huge city to compete with Kuala Lumpur in support of the bigger moves which have been elicited.

    For Penang and Selangor, the supporters of the State Government should clap their hands with glee IF THESE STATES LEADERSHIPS HAVE THE BRILLIANCE, COURAGE AND GUMPTION LIKE OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD.

    By sheer coincidence, all the essential ingredients to make a wonderful cake for all in a win-win situation for all are available and for the asking and doing. Time is of the essence if these folks have any inkling to rule for the next 60 years.

    Malaysian Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Our heartiest welcome home to you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah for having represented our beloved Malaysia in the best of both Worlds – the World of a resurgent and emergent group of Nations in support of the Belt and Road Initiative and Malaysia, one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    These are not trying times but great and exciting times for all Nations which have the vision and the inclination to see what is good the Belt and Road Initiative will bring and do for their communities. And as President Xi promised, the Belt and Road Forums will be held regularly.

    It is important to note too, that under your brilliant and courageous Premiership, Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side, the Belt and Road Initiative is indeed a fortuitous event and happening for our beloved Malaysia. Why ?

    It is because the Belt and Road Initiative has declared objectives which jive with our beloved Malaysia’s own objectives and pretensions.

    IT WAS GOOD TO SEE AND HEAR THAT YOU HAVE GRASPED THE BELT AND ROAD INITIATIVE WITH BOTH HANDS IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S NATIONAL INTEREST.!

    And what could our beloved Malaysia gained out of all these ominous developments in the National Interest ?

    As a first step, I foresee the coming of the following developments due to the momentum created by you and detailed by Tun Daim arising from the ECRL and Bandar Malaysia thus :-

    1. THE AMALGAMATION OF PETALING JAYA, SUBANG JAYA AND SUNWAY INTO A MEGA CITY TO COMPETE WITH KUALA LUMPUR. This move will enhance the values of landed properties and businesses therein and spread manufacturing activities outwards to the less developed areas.

    .Selangor State will have within its environs 3 Mega cities of note, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya, Kuala Lumpur, and the New City of Petaling Jaya/Subang/Sunway. How many countries can do this ?

    2. THE PROPOSED RECLAMATION OF THE SEA OFF KOTA BARU TO CREATE A LAND MASS AS BIG AS SINGAPORE FOR THE PEOPLES OF KELANTAN WHO WILL NOT BE SUBJECTED TO FLOODS ANYMORE.

    This is in line with the Belt and Road Initiative and in anticipation of the Isthmus of Kra Canal to come within 20 years. A new metro-polis based on what had been done in Dubai and other places in the Middle East. Where else but Malaysia during this tenure of your brilliant and courageous Leadership ?

    This sea reclamation is not only rewarding but socio-economically feasible which ONLY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERRNMENT CAN ACHIEVE !

    3. TJE PROPOSED CREATION OF THE NEW GEORGE TOWN ON THE SITE OF THE BAYAN LEPAS AIRPORT INTO THE FINEST CITY IN THE WORLD BY THE MOST FAMOUS TOWN PLANNER OF THE WORLD. Like the Twin Petronas Towers, all tourists will visit Penang for a look-see.- Penang becomes the Numero Uno of the World of Resorts and Leisure.

    Scrap the tunnel. Scrap the highway. Scrap the 3 islands reclamation. Scrap the concrete. All are a sheer waste of money and TIME. And also these are not in the interests of the Rakyat.

    The New Proposals are fast, cheap, practical and cost little money and time.

    4. Create a mega-Ministry to overseer all RURAL DEVELOPMENTS IN THE INTERESTS OF THE RURAL FOLK.

    DO IT LIKE WHAT JAPAN AND SWITZERLAND ARE DOING RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THEIR HIGHLY INDUSTRIALIZED COMPLEXES.

    In other words, there should be NO CORRUPTION WITH EVERY SEN. All monies are geared to make the rural folk successful in their undertakings and happy with their environment which should never be neglected arising from the fall-out of benefits of the Belt and Road Initiative..

    We must be one of the most advanced countries in the World in terms of agricultural socio-economics instead of hiding in academic enclaves and shoot off meaninglessly diatribes daily.

    It is the vast expanse of the rural landscape which needs the VISION AND CARE OF A GOOD AND YOUNG YB MINISTER IN CHARGE OF THIS HUGE MINISTRY OF RURAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT which at the moment is scattered here and there with no cohesion as to purpose or objective.

    IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE HUGE SUMS OF MONEY SAVED FROM WANTON CORRUPTION SHOULD BE MADE TO WORK FOR THIS MINISTRY AND THE RURAL FOLK – A PRIDE OF PLACE IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA which is actually bountiful of agricultural products but NEGLECTED AND AFFECTED BY CORRUPTION ELSEWHERE 2003-2018.

    Tun, who says there is NOTHING FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO DEVELOP ?

    The list under your Premiership is as long as our arms, thus :-

    1. THE NEW CITY OF PETALING JAYA, SUBANG AND SUNWAY

    2. THE NEW GEORGE TOWN AND THE UPGRADING OF THE OLD GEORGE TOWN WITH ITS 19TH CENTURY SEWARAGE SYSTEM AND FLOOD MITIGATION SCHEMES COUPLED WITH A PRACTICAL LIGHT RAILWAY JAPANESE STYLE IN PLACE OF THE HIGHWAY.

    3. THE RECLAMATION OF THE SEA OFF KOTA BARU – THE SIZE OF SINGAPORE TO CREATE A NEW MEGA-POLIS FOR THE KELANTANESE AND THE NATION.

    4. A HUGE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE SOCIO-ECONOMICS FOR THE RURAL FOLK TO BRING UP SUCH ACTIVITIES TO THE LEVEL OF JAPAN AND SWITZERLAND.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. We trust and support your Leadership in the ESSENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. No more. No less. Which can only be achieved without CORRUPTION and the Belt and Road Initiative which you so rightly grasped with both hands to turn it to our benefit and advantage in the National Interest.

    It is up to the political parties of the divide to work out their political campaign strategy to win vote, then, decide which way to go that benefit them.

    To me whoever become perdana menteri and menteri besar, i still have work, live and enjoy life, and vote and pay bills and taxes.

    2. The Star. 25 April 2019 – ‘ BOUSTEAD GROUP SEES RETURN TO PROFITABILITY ‘- Really ?

    3. Financial Daily 25 April 2019 – One headline contradicts another.

    Page 4. ‘ BOUSTEAD OPTIMISTIC ABOUT REVERSING FINANCIAL FORTUNES.’

    Page 8. ‘ BOUSTEAD PLANTATIONS UNSURE IF IT CAN RETURN TO THE BLACK.’.

    4. ‘ NUMBER OF MATRICULATION SLOTS INCREASED TO 40,000 FROM 25,000.’
    News not bad but can be much better. Think !

    5. ‘ MATRICULATION SEATS INCREASED, QUOTA REMAINS. ‘

    On Headlines 1, 2 & 3, it irks me to read such mis-leading headlines from a once reputable plantation company.

    For those who think I know nothing about the plantation industry, rubber and oil palm, my first stint in business was to clean up my family’s corrupt rubber estate in North Johor and was the first Malaysian to plant oil palms in the Private Sector when the British Colonial Agencies lifted their Moratorium on the sale of oil palm seedlings to the locals in 1965. I was directly managing the estate for 7 years and reduced the cost of our rubber to 32 sens per lb.

    Here are the facts on how a plantation should be managed which have not changed for 100 years and should not change for another 100 years because the whole plantation business is INELASTIC WHERE THERE IS NO BREATHING SPACE FOR MONKEY BUSINESS IF IT IS GOING TO BE SUSTAINABLE AND PROFITABLE.

    The precepts or seeds of managing a good plantation were brought into this country by the British arising from their experiences in tropical West Indies, British Guiana and West Africa from the 18th to the 19th Century.

    And now the Trustees of the Malay Trusts have ruined the oil palm plantations under their Trust completely BECAUSE MONEY TO BAIL OUT THESE ESTATES IS NOT LIKE BAILING AN ORDINARY COMPANY.

    Much time and effort were spent in getting the oil palms to produce efficiently and profitably which are in turn governed by factors beyond our control eg. World prices and trends, climate and unexpected circumstances.

    In my Life, I only met 3 Trustees whom I respect and regard as TRUSTWORTHY, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HONEST from the Public Sector eg. Tan Sri Taib Andak. Tan Sri Basir Ismail and YM Raja Tan Sri Alias. Those who came after them brought the horrific results of managing a Trust Plantation their WAY which we see today e.g.

    i) THE BOUSTEAD PLANTATIONS.

    It was alleged some very expensive plantations were bought before the RM 740 Million Tawau pondan oil palm estate in THE MOST INACESSIBLE PART OF MALAYSIA.

    Not only that, this Pondan oil palm estate is not a single block BUT IN SMALL SECTIONS SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER SITED ON HILLY AND INFERTILE SOIL. The annual FFB was reputed to be 10 tonnes per hectare compared with the National Average of 20-24 tonnes per hectare.

    IN OTHER WORDS TOP RINGGIT WAS PAID FOR A USELESS PONDAN ESTATE WHICH NO ONE WANTED TO BUY FOR OVER 20 YEARS by one of the once most reputable plantation companies in the land.

    What is a PONDAN OIL PALM ?

    A Pondan Oil Palm is an oil palm which does not produce any fruits of note because from young it was under-nourished by being planted in infertile soil or badly neglected by the lack of fertilizer or maintenance.

    MONEY IN ANY AMOUNT WILL NOT TURN A PONDAN OIL PALM BACK TO NORMAL AGAIN. An oil palm has a life of 25 years of FFB production which is ruined forever.

    WHAT BOUSTEAD PAID RM 740 MILLION FOR IS JUST 11,OOO+ ACRES OF ROCKY AND HILLY INFERTILE LAND FULL OF PONDAN OIL PALMS IN THE MOST INACESSIBLE PART OF MALAYSIA !

    In other words, Boustead bought NOTHING because no amount of money put into such an estate will ever turn it around because it was NOT A NORMAL OIL PALM ESTATE IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.

    The above-mentioned Trustees of a Malay Trust abused their Trust which the Trust should take action and retrieve the financials from BOTH THE BUYER AND THE SELLER. This is only FAIR AND JUST. Bail-outs from the Government is not the solution to this incurable problem.

    ii) FELDA.

    This Malay Trust and its fables and foibles are well-documented by doing the UNTHINKABLE !

    That is FELDA HAD A CASH RESERVE FOR ITS PLANTATION ACTIVITIES OF RM 6 BILLION, IT ENDED UP NOW WITH A DEBT OF RM 14 BILLION. How to administer a plantation like this ?

    IT IS AN AGE-OLD STANDARD PRACTICE IN MANAGEING PLANTATIONS THAT IT IS RECOGNISED THAT THE PALM OIL IS SUBJECTED TO WORLD TRENDS IN THE PRICE OF THE OIL WHICH IS BEYOND THE CONTROL OF A PLANTER. THEREFORE, A MINIMUM OF 30% OF THE PROFITS ON AN UPTURN IN PRICE MUST BE PUT ASIDE AS CASH RESERVE – the more the better in safeguarding the bottomless downturn in a commodity price. THIS IS THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE WHICH IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF A PERSON MANAGING AN ESTATE.

    In Boustead Plantations which debt from zero zoomed up to over RM 1.4 Billion and FELDA with a cash reserve for plantations, which debt zoomed up to RM 14 Billion, we can only assume as planters that THE PLANTATIONS OF THESE TWO GROUPS HWVE BEEN DESTROYED BY THE TRUSTEES WHICH NO BAIL-OUTS CAN SAVE PERMANENTLY.

    RESERVE CASH IN ANY PLANTATION COMPANY CANNOT BE INVESTED OUTSIDE ITS PLANTATION BUSINESS IF A PERSON UNDERSTANDS THIS PECULIAR INDUSTRY ! Its gestation period for oil palms to produce is long and no one can foresee the future which lies ahead.

    iii) SIME DARBY

    For a student of the FAILURE OF THE PLANTATION INDUSTRY UNDER THE MALAY TRUSTS AND THEIR TRUSTEES, HE WOULD FIND THAT THE SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT STARTED IT ALL WHICH WAS FOLLWED BY THE REST OF THE TRUSTS, thus :-

    i) SELLING VALUABLE ESTATE LAND IN 1990 TO A CHINESE MCA LEADER AT A GIVE AWAY PRICE OF ONLY RM 4 MILLION ITS NOVA SCOTIA ESTATE OF 2,000 ACRES WHICH WAS FLIPPED OVER TO SELANGOR PERANGSANG AND A CHINESE TAN SRI TALAM FOR RM 88 MILLION – WITHOUT THE BOARD’S CONSENT ! Very daring ! RM 88 MLLION MUST BE THE MINIMUM PRICE WHICH I RECKON SHOULD BE AT LEAST RM 150 – 200 MILLION. The Sime Darby Management lost for the Malay Trust and its Beneficiary PNB RM 146 – 196 Million. SIME DARBY SOLD CHEAP AND LOST RM 146 – 196 MILLION MALAY TRUST MONEY.

    In 1992, the Sime Darby wanted me to approve the PURCHASE OF A SABAH PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE FOR RM 32 MILLION WHEN NO ONE WANTED TO BUY FOR RM 20 MILLION FOR 20 YEARS. I OBJECTED AND RESIGNED. Very daring. The seller was a crooked Chinese. SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT BUYS EXPENSIVE AND GIVES AWAY PRECIOUS MALAY TRUST MONEY TO A CROOKED CHINESE. The same exercise was carried out in Boustead Plantations and FELDA.

    Sime Darby bought the huge Liberian estate which NO ONE wanted in EBOLA LAND. By the same token, NO ONE wants to buy it now.

    From the above-mentioned facts, the Government can only bail out all these destroyed estates TEMPORARILY.

    ALL THE TRUSTEES OF THE MALAY TRUSTS AND THEIR CHINESE BUYERS OR SELLERS HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR SUCH TITANIC LOSSES SUFFERED BY THE MALAY TRUSTES AND THEIR BENEFICIARIES. THEIR HUGE SUMS OF MONEY DEPOSITED OVERSEAS ARE TO BE RETRIEVED AND RETURNED TO THE MALAY TRUSTS BECAUSE BAIL-OUTS BY THE GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY BE TEMPORARY AND ARE ADDITIONAL LOANS WHICH A PLANTATION CANNOT BEAR.

    4 & 5 Headlines

    Kudos to the Minister of Education for increasing the Matriculation slots from 25,000 to 40,000.

    WHY NOT INCREASE THE SLOTS TO 100,000 AND LET THE QUOTA REMAIN TEMPORARILY YB ?

    The Rakyat will LOVEe you for this significant gesture and carve your good name in stone ! This should be the pay-back for our long suffering Rakyat from 2004-2018, YB !

    JUST LOOK AT THE ABUSE OF MALAY TRUST FUNDS AS MENTIONED ABOVE BY THE TRUSTEES WHO WERE APPOINTED IN TRUST BY THE RAKYAT !

    THE BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS WHICH DISAPPEARED FROM THE TRUSTS INTO THIN AIR BENEFITTING SOME PHANTOMS AND NOT 100,000 YOUNG AND GOOD MALAYSIANS ! Just ponder on the abuses and horrific acts of these untrustworthy Trustees and their Chinese or foreign buyers or sellers..

    YB for not more than RM 50 Million, not Billions, you earn the LOVE AND KISSES OF A GENERATION OF YOUNG MALAYSIANS ! Why not ? Only less than RM 50 Million for our young Malaysians and NOT FOR ENNOBLED CROOKS AND THEIR CROOKED CHINESE FRIENDS OR FOREIGNERS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Your YB Minister of Education is an honourable and good man who can make the Rakyat LOVE him if the slots are raised to 100,000 ! Why not from a New and Incorruptible Government which should rule for another 60 years ?

    Hawker food is our cultures and traditions tak kisah halal atau tak halal since we have enough laws to govern them via political parties of the divides.

    But when comes to 1 sided politics, these cultures and traditions would be replaced by fast food players due to massive industraliazation tanpa pedulikan the impact to the people keranamu malaysia boleh is being played this time after 1 malaysia had ended with dsn.

    I am not racist against you mubarakchan, but the way you flip your comments proven that you are a very impatient man and could lead to internal fighting within political parties.

    I am not a member of any political parties, but i loose hope with the political parties of the divide in stirring up with race and religion issues to dictate the federal budget.

    Healthy competition is good, but when healthy competition is not allowed due to nep, then, the winner of the day is doom to feel disappointed.

    If being frank can be perceived as racist, then, they really have to ask themselves again, are they not rich enough, or are they the ungrateful lot with greedy and fearless mindset?

    Similarly, political parties and voters too can sack the winner so that they win and re-write history, tak gitu?

    This is a quiet day but there are only two headlines of note which concern one attempt to down Malaysia’s political and financial resilience and another to put our focus in the right place, the fundamentals.

    1. ” UBS ADMITS MISTAKES MADE BY OFFICIAL’S APPRAISAL OF MALAYSIA.”

    2. ” WORLD BANK TO MALAYSIA – FOCUS LESS ON STOCK MARKET, MORE ON FUNDAMENTALS. ”

    1. UBS was one of the darling banks of Lee Kuan Yew before the Crash of October 2008. He was sucked into UBS by its good name and the willy ways of the then CEO who paid himself very high salaries. After the Crash, UBS was found to have been mired in all sorts of illegal activities and had to be bailed out by its major shareholders like Singapore. Now, Singapore is the largest shareholder.

    The fake official of UBS who denigrated Malaysia with fake information is just underlining what Lee Kuan Yew said in the past, ‘HE WHO PAYS THE PIED PIPER PLAYS THE TUNE.’

    Therefore, Tay is just a mouthpiece echoing fake information against Malaysia’s SUCCESS. This reflects badly on UBS as well by permitting Tay, a fake, to use UBS as a forum to do down Malaysia world-wide.

    TAY SHOULD BE SACKED ON THE SPOT FOR BEING A FAKE !

    2 There have been attempts by fakes in the Opposition media to stir up interest to stimulate the Bursa.

    Because of the lack of enforcement by the Bursa and the Securities Commission from 2004-2018, the share-riggers were in full play causing losses to the many small investors. These illegal acts were condoned by the SC which were involved from the top to the bottom.

    Even one illegal share-rigging syndicate which made over RM 1 Billion or more over a 15 year period was let off scot-free. With such weak enforcement of the laws, WHO WANTS TO INVEST IN THE BURSA ANYMORE ?

    Even the World Bank had noticed that the Bursa is corrupt due to the lack of enforcement by the SC. Because of this, the World Bank’s advice to avoid the Bursa but focus on the fundamentals is as true as an arrow.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem until the last Corrupt Agency, the Securities Commission is cleaned up, no investor will invest in the Bursa because the big illegal share rigging syndicates were permitted to get away scot free at the small investors expense !

  113. mubarakchan Apr 23,2019 10:42 AM

    Tun,

    Another fine day for us Malaysians living in our beloved Malaysia.

    But our heartfelt and deepest condolences for the families of the Sir Lankan terrorist bombing victims must hold sway.

    A tragic consequence of World wide terrorism which arose from the unbridled consequences of World history and were well beyond the control of the man or woman in the street. Nevertheless, as decent Humankind we sympathise, succour and assist the unfortunate whenever we could which you have done magnanimously in your humble manner, Tun.

    As the saying goes, ‘PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE’ or our SECURITY AUTHORITIES MUST BE ON ALERT ALL THE TIME IN THIS TUMULTOUS WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE TO PREVENT HARM TO OUR INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

    And today, a day very near to the 1st Anniversary of the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs, the Rakyat can already discern some solid results from the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great.

    Many Manifesto promises cannot be turned off or on like a switch. Some might take time because of unexpected damage due to wanton corruption or nepotism. But it could be discerned that whatever possible to be done quickly, had been done in the shortest possible time span.

    All in all, your YB Ministers are LOYAL TO OUR YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE CONSTITUTION, AND BEST OF ALL, TO YOU AS THEIR PRIME MINISTER.

    Let us hope with the minimum of fuss, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat will march upwards and forwards to the beat of our own drums, and not Singapore’s, towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland which took 800 years, Democratic India 5,000 years and Good Governance Japan, 3,000 years..

    We do it in our unique Malaysian Way, Quiet and Humble. And the blessings which came were :-

    1. A PRIME MINISTER WHO IS BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS.

    2. THE OUSTING OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCS.

    3. A LOYAL CABINET OF MINISTERS AND ONE AIDE WHO ARE KEEN TO DO THE JOB.

    4. RESOLUTION OF THE ECRL WHICH IS FAIR AND REGAINED RESPECT FOR THE SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS A PROUD, DIGNIFIED AND RESPECTED NATION and not like some cheap crooks lining their pockets.

    5. THE RISE IN THE PRICE OF PETROLEUM IN RECENT DAYS.

    6. THE RECOGNITION OF OUR PRIME MINISTER INTERNATIONALLY BY PAKISTAN, THE TIME MAGAZINE ETC.

    And it is good to note also that our beloved Prime Minister always tackled problems with common sense, logic and consideration for Humanity by facing problems head-on and not sweeping them under the carpet or blame others.

    Exciting headlines this morning thus,

    1. ‘DR M’s CHINA MEETS ‘A GOOD SIGN’.

    2. ‘FORUM FOR BETTER RELATIONS’- From His Excellency, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People’s Republic of China

    3. ‘BRI WIND MAY JUST BE WHAT MALAYSIA NEEDS’ – From His Excellency, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People’s Republic of China.

    4. ‘ORANG ASLI ISSUES GOVT’S PRIORITY’

    5. ‘TOURISM CAN UPLIFT ORANG ASLI’

    6..’WIDE ACCEPTANCE OF NATIONAL SCHOOLS’

    7. ‘INTERNET LINK AS VITAL AS WATER, POWER’

    1, 2 & 3. It is a well-known fact that China can help with her strong financial clout achieved through blood, sweat and toil arising from the effects of the expansionistic colonialists in the 19th Century and 20th Century.

    But Malaysia is quite different from many countries as we are a Nation of diverse peoples mainly from 3 ancient civilization and all, not at all homogenous. Our history is also quite unique.

    But the most important feature of all is Malaysia’s unique GEO-POLITICAL STRATEGIC LOCATION WHICH STANDS ASTRIDE AN IMPORTANT CHOKE POINT WHICH STRETCHES 1,200 KM FROM THE ANDAMAN SEA TO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. A Nation full of good peoples with a stable Government and bountiful of natural resources.- RIGHT IN THE NEXUS OF ASEAN OR SOUTH EAST ASIA OR ASIA!

    What our beloved Malaysia wants is a GUARANTEE OF NEUTRALITY FROM ALL NATIONS INCLUDING THE SUPER-POWERS LIKE CHINA, THE US, INDIA, RUSSIA, JAPAN AND THE EU.

    Similarly, NEUTRALITY SHOULD BE APPLICABLE ALSO TO ASEAN – a peace-loving Group full of dynamic and hard-working peoples, 400 Million strong. Switzerland achieved NEUTRALITY AT THE TURN OF THE 20TH CENTURY because she did not want to be involved in the wars of others.

    With a NEURTALITY LABEL MALAYSIA IS UNDERSTOOD TO TREAT ALL NATIONS EQUALLY AND FAIRLY, BIG OR SMALL.

    4 & 5. Finally, the Orang Asli are given the right sort of assistance where they best perform.

    The Tourism Industry is where the Orang Asli like all other Malaysians will find a good place under the Sun.eg. in places with tourist activities like airports, hotels, sightseeing spots etc.

    Kudos to our YB Minister of Tourism for recognising this fact and moved in fast to support the Orang Asli through the Tourism Board.

    IT MUST BE REMEMBERED THAT THE ORANG ASLI, TRAVEL AGENTS AND ALL EXCEPT THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS MUST MAKE PROFITS OR MONEY.

    There is no free lunch in the Tourism Industry for anyone.

    THE BN MINISTERS HAD THE FREE LUNCH WHILST THEY WERE IN OFFICE TRAVELLING TO HIGH CLASS LONDON, SYDNEY, AUCKLAND ETC LUXURIATING IN ^ STARS HOTELS LIKE TYCOONS..

    Please do not be like them YB Ministers of the New and Incorruptible Government.

    Our tourists come from India, China, ASEAN and the Middle East.

    All the Caucasians know where Malaysia is and they know what they want. So please do not waste time with them.

    IN EVERY COUNTRY THE MINISTER OF TOURISM WORKS AT HOME TO MAKE SURE THE TRAVEL AGENTS MAKE MONEY AND THE TOURISTS GET THE CHEAPEST DEAL, unlike the GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVANTS OF THE BN GOVERNMENT INCLUDING MAS.

    With the right notions, the Ministry of Tourism ranks with the top tier of the Ministries like Defence, Internal Security, Finance etc.

    6. I have no problems with National Schools. My children and my grand-children found no problems as well.

    It is only as we grow older either parental or peer pressure made us realise communal differences.

    Whatever it takes to unify a Nation must be good.

    BUT THE BEGINNING MUST REST WITH THE TOP LEVEL OF OUR SOCIETY WHICH IS THE PRIME MINISTER AND HIS GOVERNMENT. THIS IS WHERE BRILLIANT AND COURAGEIOUS LEADERSHIP WILL HOLD SWAY AND NOT SOME THIEVING LEADERSHIPS. THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF GOOD WORKS LIKE HONESTY, UNITY, LOYALTY AND CARE FOR HUMANITY MUST COME FROM THE VERY TOP.

    For 14 years, the Rakyat heard a lot of BS or clichés of promises but NOTHING HAPPENED even a place with 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50, Singapore WITH NOTHING was cited as better than our beloved Malaysia !

    I have never seen such INFERIORITY COMPLEX AND IGNORANCE OF ONE’S SELF, of all peoples, from A MALAYSIAN.

    And at the stroke of midnight 9 May 2018 OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BECAME ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. Believe it or not, Tun !

    7. KUDOS TO THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION FOR THE TIMELY INSTALLATION OF THE INTERNET IN ALL HOMES AND OFFICES.

    With this announcement I realise we the Rakyat were given BS by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs because I always thought that was the BN Government Policy all these years.

    Finally, we all wish the Malaysian Delegation as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad every success and a BON VOYAGE to BEIJING !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Good things for good people come in spades. Bad things for crooks also come in spades. Acheh !

    Tun

    Monday is the beginning of another week which will be pregnant with exciting activities and showers of paper arrows shot by the Opposition.

    Even my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree shirked getting up early. They began their natural task only at 7.03 a.m..

    And so it is with the World we live in, the World of our beloved Malaysia. Those who are forever disgruntled do not know what they miss living in a dynamic and living World which is our beloved Malaysia. And as for the headlines of the Opposition media, these appear again in all earnestness thus

    1. ” HARAPAN WILL NOT BE A ONE-TERM GOVT. VOWS MINISTER ”

    2. ” GOMBAK QUARTZ RIDGE TO BECOME NATIONAL HERITAGE SITE ”

    3. ” KEEP CLOSE WATCH ON HOUSEHOLD DEBT ”

    4. ” RATE CUT MAY NOT SAVE RINGGIT BOND RALLY AS INDEX OUTFLOW LOOMS ”

    5. ” PM WORKING THREE TIMES HARDER NOW ”

    1. The Harapan Government of the New and Incorruptible will soon be a one term Government if its Ministers forget the bread and butter issues of the Rakyat as so correctly pointed out by DSAI recently.

    The Rakyat is not concern with amendments to the Constitution for cosmetic sake to favour a few, or nursery in the Dewan Rakyat or wasting money on toy planes which are not original or spiritual masseurs for the aged or LGBT or changing education curriculum for changing sake or sea reclamation which lasts 30 years or new bill to stop bottom pinching etc.

    The Rakyat is concerned with the bread and butter issues on the table as highlighted by DSAI.

    In other words, each and every Ministry must go back to its Original and Normal stance of Governance, Delivery and Service which have been neglected for 14 years by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Non-caring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs.

    Political hot air of any kind is to be eschewed and put on the back-burner.

    TO BE A YB MINISTER OF THE FEDERATION IS A WHOLE NEW BALL GAME ALTOGETHER ie. you have to look after those who voted against or dislike you as well. This is the only function of the Malaysian Federal Government. May be this is not so easy for those who were in Opposition for decades. Still, you have no choice after being elected.

    I do hope you all YB Ministers appreciate that you will learn much from our beloved Tun Mahathir Mohamad to be in POWER for the next 60 years.

    2. Kudos to the Minister of Tourism who has finally moved to designate a Natural Treasure of our beloved Malaysia. There will be many more to come like how to preserve the fire-fly domain of Kuala Selangor or has it been destroyed already. The tourists would love to have the latest photo of the YB Minister in colour which will do him justice in the Opposition media.

    3. Household debt must be linked to the huge number of bankrupts especially amongst the young Malays (200,000+). This totalled over 500,000 bankrupts with urban votes which will be instigated against the incumbent Government at the next 15th GE.

    In Malaysia, the household debt as percentage of the GDP is 80% as reported – the biggest in ASEAN. The incumbent Minister of Law is the FOURTH LAW MINISTER WHO HAS DONE NOTHING TO REVISE AND UP-DATE THE BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967. He just read out the fake BN revised Bankrupt Act in the Dewan Rakyat and said all is OK with the bankrupts WHO ARE THE ONLY BANKRUPTS IN THE WORLD NOT GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE UNLIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. Vide. The Star – Letter to Editor 25 June 2018.

    If nothing is done to really revise and up-date the Bankruptcy Act 1967, the incumbent Government will face an urban vote against it by over 500,000 bankrupts and 80% of the GDP households in debt by the next 15th GE. THEN, THE BN WILL RETURN TO POWER NO MATTER WHAT THE YB MINISTER OF COMMODITIES SAYS !

    I say this because I hope the New and Incorruptible Government will be in POWER for the next 60 years. It is as simple as this to stay in POWER – BE CARING TO THE DISADVANTAGED !

    4 & 5. Strange to say these 2 headlines should be as one.

    THE PROBLEMS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TODAY CONCERNING OUR ECONOMY AND ITS FINANCIAL WHEREWITHAL REST SQUARELY ON THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCs.

    THE BN GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP 2004-2018 THOUGHT A PRIME MINISER COULD ALSO BE THE MINISTER OF FINANCE SINCE THEY BELIEVED THAT CASH IS KING. If the World treats CASH IS KING, the round wheel would never have been invented thousands of years ago.

    These attitudes in administering a small country were based on our beloved Malaysia was like an ATM – just press a button and money will appear. THIS FALSE BELIEF BROUGHT OUR MALAYSIA DOWN TO HER KNEES AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE INDEX OUTFLOWS HEADLINE.

    Little do these neophytes were aware that the financial well-being of our beloved Malaysia took 47 years to build up, from the Tunku to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. The Malaysian economy and its reputation were so well maintained that those who came after them 2004-2018 thought it was a cinch THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER 31 MILLION CITIZENS COULD BE RUN ON AN AUTO-PILOT WHILST THEY SQUANDERED THE RAKYAT’S TIME AND MONEY AWAY TO SATISFY THEIR DESIRES WHATEVER THESE MEANT.

    As it is now shown now in no uncertain terms that the SAVINGS OR RESERVES OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WERE SIPHONED OUT OF THE COUNTRY BETWEEN 2002-2018 TO THE EXTENT OF RM ONE AND A HALF TRILLION. This meant the Government and the economy had RM ONE AND A HALF TRILLION LESS TO SPEND ON DEVELOPMENT AND RAISE THE LIFE SYLE OR STANDARDS OF THE RAKYAT.

    Worst of all, Trustees of Malays Trusts Sime Darby (twice bankrupted in 1996 and 2010) LTAT, FELDA, TH etc cleaned out the Trusts of money by buying very expensive or selling very cheap to some crooked Chinese or foreigners. Now, all and sundry ask how could this be ?

    HENCE OUR PM TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD HEADLINE, ” PM WORKING THREE TIMES HARDER NOW “. Let us all hope that future PMs will be aware that their jobs are 24 hours day and night, 7 days a week. No 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. for them and no 6 months holiday like a pregnant school teacher. And golf and overseas holidays are only for the PRIVATE SECTOR.

    Yes, Tun ! Not only the PM, but also a YB Minister in any Federal Government has a serious responsibility to discharge in working hard and delivering to the Rakyat. There should be no difficulty at all in DISCHARGING ONE’S RESPONSIBLITIES AND DUTIES HONESTLY GIVEN THE RIGHT TYPE OF LEADER AS THE PM.

    Again I hope the New and Incorruptible Government will be in POWER for the next 60 years.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Our beloved Malaysia should always be bland and boring without any excitement like Japan and Switzerland !.

    Tun

    With the rising heat of debate on the pros and cons of the existing Penang Master Plan as presented by the Penang State Government which to this day has not been able to raise funds or total support for it, I AM OF THE OPINION THAT THE NEW PROPOSALS TO RAISE REVENUE AND DEVELOP PENANG IS FAR MORE PRACTICAL AND COSTS FAR LESS MONEY.- A WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR ALL !

    Besides, the NEW PROPOSALS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF PENANG TO RAISE REVENUE WILL BE SUPPORTED BY ALL CONCERNED AND NOT BY AN ESOTERIC FEW.

    With your kind permission, I present my NEW PROPOSALS AGAIN.

    We must presume that the Penang Government Master Plan intends to develop and raise revenue. THEREFORE OUR OBJECTIVES FOR THE RAKYAT ARE THE SAME.

    But the New Proposals are by far cheaper, faster, more practical, environmental friendly, with more revenue raised, and do not destroy the environment and the Rakyat’s habitation. The Rakyat should be able to see the sensibilities of the New Proposals transparently, thus

    1. Scrap the 3 islands reclamation.

    2. Scrap the Outer George Town Highway

    3. Scrap the undersea Tunnel.

    3. Close the Bayan Lepas Airport. And turn the area together with the FTZs inclusive of the land up to Sungei Keluang in the North, the foothills in the West, Pulau Jerejak and the whole of the Southern Beach front AS THE NEW GEORGE TOWN WHICH IS TO BE PLANNED BY A WORLD RENOWNED TOWN PLANNER. Like this there is no necessity for the 3 Island Reclamation which brings in the Private Sector and costs billions of ringgits and time.

    THIS 3 ISLANDS RECLAMATION IS A PIE IN THE SKY TYPE OF PROMISE WHICH DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANY MONEY TO THE STATE GOVERNMENT FOR 30 YEARS ! My New Proposals ARE IMMEDIATE, SOLID AND TRUE.

    4. THE 3 ISLANDS RECLAMATION BECOME IRRELEVANT AND REDUNDANT VIEWED AGAINST MY NEW PROPOSALS FOE A NEW GEORGE TOWN.

    5. WITH THE CREATION OF THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, TRAFFIC PRESSURE IS TAKEN OFF FROM THE OLD GEORGE TOWN AND ITS ENVIRONS BECAUSE ALL STATE GOVERNMENT OFFICES WILL BE SHIFTED TO THE NEW GEORGE TOWN. THE COMMERCIAL OFFICES AND OTHER ACTIVITIES WILL FOLLOW.

    6. TRAM LINES WILL BE CREATED IN THE OLD GEORG TOWN WITH CERTAIN STREETS DESIGNATED ONLY FOR THE PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS.

    7. KOMTAR is to be turned into 2 hotels, one Budget and the other 4 Star.

    8. THE PRESSURE COOKER WAY OF LIFE NOW EXISTS IN OLD GEORGE TOWN IS DEFUSED TO CREAT THE WORLD’S FINEST HERITAGE SITE BEING THE OLD GEORGE TOWN
    9. WITH THE CREATION OF THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, THERE IS NO NECESSITT TO BUILD THE OUTER GEORGE TOWN HIGHWAY AS THE MOMENTUM OF DEVELOPMENT SHIFTS TO THE NEW GEORGE TOWN.

    10. ALSO THERE IS NO NECESSITY TO BUILD THE TUNNEL FOR THE SAME REASONS.

    11. FREE AND LOW COST HOUSING SHOULD BE LOCATED IN THE FOOTHILLS IN THE WEST FOR THOSE INHABITANTS AFFECTED BY THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW GEORGE TOWN.

    12. IT IS BETTER TO BUILD A JAPANESE TYPE OF COUNTRY RAILWAY CONNECTING KULIM, THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, THE FOOT HILLS, ALONG THE SITE OF THE OUTER GEORGE TOWN HIGHWAY, THIS IS ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY, IT TRANSPORTS MORE PEOPLE AND COSTS MUCH LESS – just a tiny track will do.

    13. PULAU JEREJAK TO BE FLATTENED TO BUILD A DOMESTIC REGIONAL AIRPORT FOR PRIVATE JETS, HELICOPTERS AND SMALL PASSENGER PLANES etc.

    14. ALSO PULAU JEREJAK WILL HAVE 4 LUXURY CRUISE LINER TERMINALS WITH SHOPPING MALL FACITLITES.

    15. WITH THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS SO SAVED BY THE PENANG STATE GOVERNMENT, THE STATE CAN NOW MODERNISE LIKE HONOLULU, HAWAII, THE 19TH CENTURY SEWAGE SYSTEM WHICH RAW SEWAGE FLOWS NON-STOP TO THE NORTH AND BATU FERRINGHI.

    16. FLOOD MITIGATION SCHEMES TO BE INSTALLED BY THE BEST AND CHEAPEST ENGINEERS IN THE WORLD. No more half-past six engineers. I SUGGEST THIS SHOULD BE UNDERGROUND WHERE POSSIBLE.

    17. ALL DEVELOPMENT SCHEMES ON PENANG ISLAND ARE GEARED TO TURN PENANG INTO THE WORLD’S FINEST HERITAGE SITE WITH THE WORLD’S FINEST HOLIDAY AND LEISURE RESORT IN PLACE. No more half way house between holiday and industry which made Penang neither here or there.

    18. WITH THE INCREASE IN LAND PRICES IN THE NEW GEORGE TOWN AREA, THE FTZS AND FACTORIES WILL FLOW TO KULIM WHICH IS CONNECTED BY A FAST RAIL AND ALSO A JAPANESE TYPE COUNTRY TRAIN VIA THE FOOTHILLS AND BEYOND.

    19. A NEW BRIDGE FOR ROAD AND RAIL WILL CONNECT THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, KULIM, BUTTERWORTH, TANJONG BUNGAH ETC MAKING A CIRCUITOUS LOOP FOR COMMUTERS.

    20. THE PICTURESQUE FERRY WILL BE MODERNISED FOR COMMUTERS AND CARS.WITH CONNECTIONS TO KEDAH, LANGKAWI AND NORTH PERAK.

    21. QUIT RENTS AND ASSESSMENTS SCRAPPED FOR THE OLD GEORGE TOWN BECAUSE THE NEW GEORGE TOWN IS A WORLD CLASS CITY WITH 100 STOREY SKYSCRAPERS CONTRIBUTING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF RINGGITS TO THE STATE GOVERNMENT.

    22. WITH THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS SAVED, THE STATE GOVERNMENT CAN IMMEDIATELY IMPROVE AND MODERNISE THE OLD HERITAGE GEORGE TOWN TO THE DELIGHT OF ALL AND SUNDRY.

    23. A JOINT SOCIO-DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL ESTABLISHED BETWEEN KEDAH AND PENANG TO IMPROVE WATER SUPPLY, COMMUNICATIONS, CROSS-BORDER TOURISM, EMPLOYMENT.

    24. WITH THE NAMY NEW HOTELS AND FACILITIES CONCOMITANT WITH A HEAVY TOURIST LOAD, MORE JOBS ARE CREATED FOR THE RAKYAT WHICH NO LONGER DEPENDS ON FLY BY NIGHT FACTORIES.

    25. THE WHOLE OF PENANG AND KULIM/KEDAH ECONOMY STABLISED, ENHANCDE AND FULL OF OPPORTUNITIES AS PENANG BECOMES MORE FAMOUS.

    26. THE WHOLE WORLD WOULD LIKE TO VISIT PENANG BECAUSE THEY CAN SEE A 21ST CENTURY WORLD CITY SIDE BY SIDE WITH A 19TH CENTURY HERITAGE OLD TOWN LIKE THE TWIN PETROANAS TOWERS AND KLIA ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    The New Proposals are good for the Rakyat and the State Government which may stay in POWER for at least 60 years.

    THE NEW PENANG MODEL FITS IN WITH OUR SOVERIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. It becomes our Malaysia’s very own Master Plan for Penang. No foreign plan for us. WE ARE MALAYSIANS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  116. mubarakchan Apr 20,2019 3:59 PM

    Tun,

    In recent days your announcements of the revival of the ECRL and the Bandar Malaysia Projects with the exclusion of the HSR will rocket our beloved Malaysia’s economy back to where it rightfully belongs.

    First, the economy could only be better with the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs on 9 May 2018.

    The Administrative System by and large remains. With the sacking of the corrupt digits manning it, our beloved Malaysia’s vital Administrative System immediately reverted back to NORMAL. All Corruptions and Nepotisms should cease at this point. The assessment of the horrible damage caused by the BN followed.

    Through your valuable experience and the assistance of one good Adviser, the platform to zoom upwards from the basement of the BN Government is in place.

    The icing on the cake will be retrieving ALL THE STOLEN MONEY BILIONS OF RINGGITS HIDDEN IN BANK DEPOSITS OVERSEAS BY THE TRUSTEES OR OFFICIALS OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AND GLCs.

    AND THE JAILING OF THESE RECALCITRANTS AND THEIR CHINESE OR FOREIGN BUYERS OR SELLERS. BOTH ARE CULPABLE IN NEARLY KILLING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO SATISFY THEIR CROOKED DESIRES.

    The population of 31 Million could only stare and watch GIGANTIC SUMS OF MONEY HANDLED BY THOSE IN POWER as their living standards and life-styles were devalued day by day.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    You have rightly placed the CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY RIGHT BACK TO WHERE IT RIGHTLY BELONGS IN MALAYSIA being the catalyst and unfailing mover of the economy since the beginning of Merdeka in 1957.

    With the fall-out from the Construction Industry, many small businesses will benefit as you and Tun Daim have rightly pointed out.

    The banks will regain confidence with the support of Bank Negara Malaysia and your Government. There will be MORE LIQUIDITY TO DRIVE CONSUMERISM. With the enhanced profits in hand, for the first time for 14 years since 2003, the employers will be happy to RAISE WAGES.

    AND CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN THAT THE 500,000 BANKURPTS OF WHICH 250,000 ARE YOUNG MALAY AND NON-MALAYS ARE NOT INCREASED BY DOING A PROPER UP-DATING AND REVISION OF THE BANRUPTCY ACT 1967 WITHOUT THE INFLUENCE OF SELFISH FINANCIAL INTERESTS LIKE SHARE-BROKERS ETC. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018.

    THE CLASSICAL MALAYSIAN FREE CAPITALISM OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND RETURNS.

    Our biggest naysayer, SINGAPORE, will also support our IMPROVED AND STABILIZED ECONOMY THROUGH THE BURSA AND PROPERTY INVESTMENTS. With Singapore, China and other foreign investors will NOT BE FAR BEHIND.

    WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA, TUN ?

    I hope the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great will last at least 60 years.

    This is achievable as long as the neophyte Ministers talk less and focus on bread and butter issues of the Rakyat and not their own emotional Agendas, of (i) Constitution amendments and not the essential Laws of Companies, Bankruptcy and Trust,(ii) nurseries, (iii) anti-bottom pinching bills, (iv) toy planes, (v) not aware of enrichment of certain individuals by the BN, (vi) supply masseurs to the sick, (vii) changing the education curriculum for changing sake, (viii) ignore the English language, (ix) no LGBT in Malaysia and many more..

    Our DSAI had the best comment,’ Focus on the food on the table issues at hand.’

    As I said before our beloved Malaysia under your brilliant and courageous Leadership, Tun, the whole country is getting stronger and stronger as we all march forward together united, proud and strong to the sound of OUR OWN DRUMS. No more Singapore Poppet label for us within the context of our SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Further to my Proposals for a cheap and profitable development of Penang as against the State Government’s Singapore Model which does not suit the State and besides the money for Singapore came from the Lee Kuan Yew’s Black Under Counter Trades in Arms, etc arising from the Cold War 1948-1989.

    Penang has no money to undertake the 2 mega Projects being the Outer George Town Highway, the Tunnel and the 3 reclaimed islands. Also, these Projects damage the environment and existing human habitation.

    Is the Penang State Government aware that between 1948 – 1989, Singapore was a colonial port until the 1980s which could generate a fizzy 7% GDP annually ?

    Now, with all the trappings and the glittering buildings, Singapore could not breach 3% from 2002-2018.

    Common sense dictates that Singapore’s push from the 3rd World to the 1st did not come from the mind of Lee Kuan Yew but something which was much more than that.

    It was the huge Black Under Counter Trades in Arms, Smuggling, Money Laundering, toadying up to dictators, collecting free Vietnam War debris, sanctions breaking China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East, Africa etc. US R & R, bunkering, air base and aid.

    Singapore’s economy collapsed after the BRICS grabbed her lush Black Under Counter Trades 1948-1989 of the Cold War, 1948-1989.

    Penang is a State in the Federation and is not independent.

    For the State Government to follow the SINGAPORE MODEL IT IS FLAWED AND A NON-STARTER and also to borrow huge funds for Projects which are public utilities known for not giving good returns.

    As for the reclamation of the islands, this is fraught with risks of the Private Sector over 30 years.

    Not only that, with the closure of the Bayan Lepas Airport to turn into the NEW GEORGE TOWN, THIS RECLAMATION NOW LOOKS REDUNDANT AND VERY EXPENSIVE LOADED WITH NEGATIVES.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. As you said correctly, ‘ IT IS THE MINDSET.’.

    My Proposals deliver cheaper, faster and a win-win for all to turn Pulau Pinang into the World’s Numero Uno for Holiday Resorts and Leisure but have absolutely no intention to turn Pulau Pinang into a concrete jungle like Singapore. .

  118. mubarakchan Apr 19,2019 7:05 PM

    Tun

    The important headlines today are thus :-

    1. ‘DR M ANNOUNCES REVIVAL OF BANDAR MALAYSIA PROJECT.’

    2. ‘NO GREENLIGHT ON PENANG RECLAMATION PROJECT YET.’

    3. ‘MALAYSIA CURRENT ACCOUNT IN SURPLUS FOR 2019.’

    1 & 2 underlines the revival of confidence which was in place before the advent of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.eg. pre-2004.

    2. ‘NO GREENLIGHT ON PENANG RECLAMATION PROJECT YET.’

    The Master Plan which the Penang State Government presented is out of date as it was prepared before the fall of the BN Government during which the State Government was in the Opposition.

    This Master Plan was a gimmick to tease the BN Government politically at great cost being based on a FLAWED MODEL- the SINGAPORE MODEL. But Penang is not Singapore. Singapore is not Penang. Think !

    The mega 3 projects being the Outer Georgetown Highway, the Tunnel and the 3 reclamation islands drew much flak from vested interests. These 3 mega Projects ARE MORE SUITABLE TO SINGAPORE THAN TO PENANG.

    Historically, Penang and Kedah were one before the arrival of the British in 1779. Thereafter Kedah was suppressed giving to the rise of Penang.

    Common sense dictates that Penang and Kedah should now have a Joint Socio-economic Development Council to overseer infra-developments on both sides of the Straits and tailor fit requirements accordingly since they are the same controlling Governments.

    To save TIME, MONEY AND DELIVER THE GOODIES FAST TO THE SUPPORTERS AND CONSTITUENTS OF THE STATE GIVERBNEBT, MY PROPOSALS ARE AS FOLLOWS :-

    1. Scrap the undersea Tunnel.

    2. Build a new Bridge connecting Bayan Lepas to Kulim

    3. Scrap the Outer George Town Highway.

    3. Scrap the Bayan Lepas Airport.

    4. Turn the Bayan Lepas Airport, the surrounding FTZ and the areas up to the hills on the West, north to Sungei Keluang and south to the sea AS THE NEW GEORGETOWN.

    5. THE NEW GEORGE TOWN SHOULD BE DESIGNED BY A WORLD RENOWN TOWN PLANNER – A NEW CITY OF BUILDINGS OF UP TO 100 STOREYS, BOULEVARDS ETC. The sea beach along the southern border is to be established for TOURISM like Honollulu, Hawaii. New State Government offices to be sited here.

    6. THE RECLAMATION OF THE SEA FOR THE 3 ISLANDS TO BE SCRAPPED. SUPPORTERS AND FINANCIERS INVOLVED HERE ARE GIVEN IMMEDIATE.
    OPPORTUNITIES IN THE NEW GEORGE TOWN.

    7. ONLY LOW RISE HOTEL BUILDINGS PERMITTED ALONG THE SOUTHERN BEACH FRONT..

    8. GOOD AND FREE HOUSING PROVIDED FOR ALL PRESENT DAY RESIDENTS WHO ARE AFFECTED BY THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, ALONG THE FOOTHILLS IN THE WEST OF BAYAN LEPAS.

    9. WITH THE JUMP IN LAND PRICES, THE FTZ FACTORIES WILL FLOW TO THE KULIM AREA. But workers could still commute to Kulim by the fast rail at 10 minute intervals.

    10.. THE KULIM AND THE NEW GEORGE TOWN ARE CONNECTED BY FAST MRT WHICH RUNS AT 10 MINUTE INTERVALS DURING PEAK HOURS.WESPECIALLY WITH THE LOW COST HOUSES ALONG THE WESTERN FOOTHILLS.

    11. WITH THE NEW GEORGE TOWN, NO QUIT RENT OR ASSESSMENT BE COLLECTED IN THE OLD GEORGE TOWN.

    12. THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS AND THE TIME SO SAVED ARE TO BE SPENT UPGRADING THE OLD CEORGE TOWN SEWANGE SYSTEM UNTOUCHED SINCE THE 19TH CENTURY ACCODRING TO HONOLULU STANDARDS. The sewage now flows North to Batu Ferringhi.And Flood Mitigation Schemes put in place below the Town.

    13. KOMTAR TO BE TURNED INTO 2 HOTELS, BUDGET AND 4 STAR. THE STATE OFFICES MOVE TO THE NEW GEORGE TOWN.

    The present Master Plan is flawed because the State Government copies the Singapore Model of pouring concrete to create revenue.

    My Proposal PRESERVES THE BRAND NAME OF THE PEARL OF THE ORIENT WHICH IS PENANG AND TURN IT INTO THE NUMERO UNO OF HOLIDAY LEISURE RESORTS OF THE WORLD TO BRING IN THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE WITH QUICK AND SHEAP DELIVERY OF GOODIES FOR ALL. You strengthen a brand name not destroy it.!

    14. KEDAH SHOULD FOCUS ALSO ON ECO-TOURISM IN WHICH IT IS A LEADER IN CONJUNCTION WITH PENANG BEING THE TOP RESORT HOLIDAY DESTINATION OF THE WORLD.WITH A SPLENDID NEW GEORGE TOWN OF MANY 100 STOREY SKYSCRAPERS.

    15. THE WHOLE OF OLD GEORGE TOWN WILL BE REVIVED IN ALL ITS HERITAGE GLORY.

    16. PULAU JEREJAK MAY BE FLATTEN TO TURN IT INTO AN AIRPORT FOR DOMESTIC AND REGIONAL FLIGHTS PLUS A PIER FOR AT LEAST 4 CRUISE SHIPS WITH SHOPPING FACILITIES.

    17. MALAYSIA HAS THE MOST MODERN NEW GEORGE TOWN SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE BEST PRESERVED OLD GEORGE TOWN IN THE WORLD. Where else but Malaysia ?

    A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR ALL.

    NO NEED TO BORROW BIG BUCKS TO DO MEGA PROJECTS OF 30 YEARS GESTATION. MY PROPOSALS ARE IMMEDIATE, PRACTICAL, FAST CHEAP AND FOR SUPPORTERS AND FINANCIERS OF THE PENANG STATE.
    GOVERNMENT.

    PENANG’S MODEL BASED ON THE SINGAPORE MODEL IS FLAWED BECAUSE THE PROJECTS DO NOT JIVE WITH THE REAL PULAU PINANG AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ! It also sounds FOREIGN !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. The Penang Cake is easy to bake for all at low cost, fast, practical and benefits all.

  119. mubarakchan Apr 19,2019 10:16 AM

    Tun

    These are exciting times for all and sundry in our beloved Malaysia.

    There should be a feeling amongst the Rakyat by now after the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites, that our beloved Malaysia as led by your Leadership is on the road to do greater things.

    Not so much as building infrastructures as in the past under your 22 year Administration but something which will not only unite the peoples but more enduring, by giving them the tools and planning to move to a higher plane of achievements. Like a good command of English, the skills of hi-tech, the new National Car and an understanding of Malaysia in relation to the World.

    These goodies can only come from an urbanised middle-income group or groups which you have already created in your 22 year Administration but nearly completely destroyed by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs.

    Now, without a murmur or regret, we will have to begin all over again. Just look at the headlines this morning thus :-

    1.” MANY OFFICIALS UNHAPPY WITH CPTPP ”

    The Sovereignty and National Interest of our beloved Malaysia were betrayed by some treacherous Official whose loyalty was in doubt and in conflict.

    I have been saying for years that the TPPA/CPTPP is a Malaysia/Malays Killer.

    How could this be any good for Malaysia when the TPPA/CPTPP is a creature of Lee Kuan Yew – its original creator to save his legacy for Singapore and his inheritors.

    His 1962 sparsely worded Water Agreement tied Malaysia into knots.

    Apparently, the TPPA/CPTPP has 50 volumes of Agreements crafted by Lee Kuan Yew and condoned by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership and personally supported by the Senior Civil Servant negotiator who had a Singaporean spouse whose profession is one which Russia, Egypt, Iran, Myanmar, China and North Korea would love to put in jail for life !

    She came out in BOLD PRINT in January 2018 that Malaysia MUST RATIFY THE TPPA/CPTPP ! Who is this person who is so brazen as to tell the BN Government to do at her biding ? After all, she is just a minor paid Government official of indeterminate loyalty and was ennobled accordingly.

    Just look at BREXIT today. Britain with all her intellectual human property, joined EU in 1976 EASILY. Now, Britain finds out to her cost THAT SHE FINDS IT SO VERY DIFFICULT TO EXIT. All the Britons look stupid to the World now.

    IN THE CASE OF THE TPPA/CPTPP, A CUNNING DEVICE TO BREAKDOWN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S TARIFF WALL WHICH IS THERE TO PROTECT OUR NASCENT MANUFACTURING AND OTHER BUSINESSES owned by different communities with different financial clout, FOR LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED SINGAPOREAN GOODS WITHOUT TAX TO FLOOD INTO MALAYSIA OVERNIGHT AS SOON AS MALAYSIA RATIFIES THE TPPA/CPTPP THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER.

    In 2017, the Singapore Business Times boasted that if Malaysia ratifies the TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays Killer, Singapore saves a MINIMUM of S$ 1 BILLION a year. Conversely, our beloved Malaysia LOSES A MINIMUM OF RM 3 BILLION A YEAR ! Stupid Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs.

    NOT ONLY THAT THE BN GOVERNMENT SIGNED THE TPPA/CPTPP MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER AGAINST A BACKGROUND WHICH HAS ALREADY MADE THE MALAYS 50% POORER AFTER OUR GOOD TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS PREDECESSORS PULLED UP THE WHOLE MALAY COMMUNITY FROM OWNING ONLY 2% OF THE ECONOMY IN 1969 TO ABOUT 30% BY 2003 ! Here is a list of what happened !

    1. 2002-2018. ONE AND A HALF TRILLION RINGGITS WERE SIPHONED OUT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER ECONOMIC SYSTEM. This was mainly stolen Government money through stealing by padding all expenditures from negotiated contracts. Being Government and Malay Trust money, THIS HAS AFFECTED THE WEALTH OF THE MALAYS BY AT LEAST 50 % if not more ! Shocking acts of the 1st Order by those we trusted !

    2. 2004-2018. The rape of Government owned assets by the PAP cadres. The theft of 1,000,000 barrels of Saddam Hussein oil which rightfully belong to the Malay Rakyat. The theft of billions of ringgits from 1MDB, FELDA, TH, LTAT, KWAP, etc – all Malay Trusts which hold the WEALTH OF THE MALAYS WERE CLEANED OUT OF MONEY AND REPLACED WITH BANK LOANS AS LIABILITIES. Now, the stolen Malay Trust money is in the personal accounts of the crooks deposited overseas to benefit the host countries. Where else but Malaysia ?

    3. 1991. The ennobled Sime Darby Management executives sold WITHOUT THE BOARD’S CONSENT the Nova Scotia estate near Rawang for RM 4 Million to a MCA Leader which re-sold it for RM 88 Million to Selangor Perangsang and a Chinese Tan Sri Talam which turned a beautiful piece of land into a tropical slum.

    The real worth of these 2,000 acres was RM 200 Million ! How much did the Malays lose ? RM 196 Million ! Or by discounted cash flow as of today 2019 – RM 1 Billion !

    Yet, these Sime Darby Malay Executives sold RM 1 Billion worth of Malay assets for only RM 4 Million in 1991 ! Hence both Buyer and Seller should be prosecuted for CBT and Conspiracy to defraud the Sime Darby shareholders of which PNB is a major one !

    THIS WAS THE GENESIS OF THE HIDEOUS CORRUPTIONS WHICH ERUPTED BETWEEN 2004-2018 during which the Malays lost 50% of their WEALTH Through conspiracy between the Malay Trustees and non-Malay Buyers or Sellers !

    Who can now dispute that the Malays Wealth has not been stolen by the very few and reduced by more than 50 % ?

    And on top of this, the Government is forced to borrow to bail-out by the billions of ringgits ALL THESE MALAY TRUSTS MONEY STOLEN BY THEIR OWN TRUSTEES ! The whole of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat are not only involved BUT MADE THAT MUCH POORER.

    WITH THE SOLID EVIDENCE OF EMPTY ICONIC MALAY TRUSTS WHEREBY THE TRUSTEES BOUGHT WORTHLESS ASSETS WITH BILLIONS OF MALAY TRUST MONEY, IT IS PROPER JUSTICE TO PROSECUTE THE BUYER AND SELLER IN SUCH A CONSPIRACY LIKE THE LTAT PURCHASE OF A USELESS PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE FOR RM 740 MILLIONS !

    All such money stolen by criminal conspiracy should be RETURNED TO THE MALAY TRUSTS. Billions of ringgits are involved by just 2 persons in the case of LTAT. The solid evidence is there and available for the prosecutors.

    Malaysia must improve her international ratings by RETRIEVING ALL THE STOLEN MONEY FROM THE OVERSEAS BANK ACCOUNTS OF THESE CROOKS NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES. This must be done in the name of SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. No more. No less.

    And the total results of all those thieving Trustees of the Malay Trusts ? The answer is in the headline this morning which confirms, thus :-

    ” MOODY’S VIEWS AID TO FELDA AS CREDIT NEGATIVE. ”

    Any down-grading WILL REDUCE THE WEALTH OF THE MALAYS AND THE NON-MALAYS AGAIN AND AGAIN. Stupid Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    Again this is the result of the following (-

    1. Between 2002-2018, one and a half Trillion Ringgits were siphoned out of the Malaysian economic system overseas. This huge sum can only come from THE GOVERNMENT COFFERS FROM STEALING BY MANY MEANS.

    2. ALL THE MALAY TRUST AND THE GLCs WERE EXIT POINTS FOR STOLEN CASH TO BE SIPHONED OUT OF THE COUNTRY 2002-2018.

    Catch the crooks. Charge the buyer and the seller in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    It was easy to say “CASH IS KING” and throw away the whole lot of the Nation’s Wealth of the Malays and Non-Malays built over decades of blood, sweat, toil and hard-work away just like that. But to re-build such WEALTH WILL NOT BE EASY.

    THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND NON-CARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DASTARDLY CRIME TO HUMANITY !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Sorry. A small typo error in my previous comment. It should be – ” Not from being a BLUFFOLOGIST “

  121. mubarakchan Apr 18,2019 8:08 PM

    Tun,

    When good tidings come, they come in spades. And when bad tidings come, so too they come in spades. These are humbling experiences for us who are trained to serve the ailing Rakyat a whole life long.

    And in a week’s time, you will be reviewing the Presidential Guards of the People’s Republic of China with President Xi Jin-ping. Both of you strolling along that red carpet laid down for very important dignitaries of the People’s Republic of China.

    And you will be there on your own MERITS.

    Not from being a BLUFFOGIST,

    Not from being there with blood on your hands,

    Not from being there having taking advantage through the machinations of your clever and educated brain, of the poor and innocent men, women and children who had no POWER to retaliate.

    BUT ENTIRELY ON YOUR OWN MERITS WITHOUT BLOODSHED OR CROOKED MEANS TO FURTHER YOUR SELF-INTERESTS OR OVER-BEARING ARROGANCE, thus

    1. THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO BUILT UP A COMMUNITY FROM ZERO BASE OWNING ONLY 2% OF THE ECONOMY WITHIN 22 YEARS INTO A 6 MILLION FAMILLIES MIDDLE INCOME MALAY GROUP TO INTERACT WITH THE 6 MILLION FAMILLIES MIDDLE INCOME GROUP OF NON-MALAYS SINGLE-HANDEDLY DESPITE ALL THE SCANDALS CAUSED BY THE THIEVING CLOSEST AIDES. Where else in the World but Malaysia and Tun M ?

    2. THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD FOR COULD GALVANISE THE RAKYAT TO OUST A COMPLETELY SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND NONCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES DEMOCRATICALLY AND WITHOUT BLOODSHED. Where else in the World but Malaysia and Tun M ?

    3. DESPITE THE THIEVING CLOSEST AIDES WHICH SCANDLISED ALL PROJECTS UNDER THEIR RESPONSIBILITY AND CONTROL, THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO PUT IN ALL THE BASIC MODERN INFRA-STRUCTURE REQUIRED FOR NATION BUILDING IN 22 YEARS. Where else in the World but Malaysia and Tun M ?

    4. THE ONLY PERSON RECOGNISED AS THE NUMERO UNO OF THE MUSLIM WORLD, ONE OF ELEVEN INFLUENTIAL STATESMEN OF THE 2019 WORLD AND RECOGNISED BY THE THIRD WORLD LONG BEFORE TODAY. Where else in the World But Malaysia and Tun M ?

    5. THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO TURNED A BELOVED NATION IN REAL TROUBLE DUE TO WANTON CORRUPTION AND NEPOTISM OVERNIGHT INTO ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. Where else in the World but Malaysia and Tun M !

    IT PAYS TO BE HUMBLE, NOT SELF-SERVING AND OVER-BEARING TUN !

    A lasting Legacy for us the Rakyat will be a GUARANTEE OF NEUTRALITY FOR MALAYSIA AND ASEAN BY THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA ARISING FROM THIS SIGNIFICANT VISIT TO BEIJING. And to be followed by similar GUARANTEES BY THE UNITED STATES, INDIA, JAPAN, BRITAIN AND THE EU LIKE NEUTRAL SWITZERLAND. This will be the icing on the cake for us all to give us room to expand and develop upwards without strife or external interference.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Bon Voyage to Beijing ! Keep smiling with Tun Dr Siti Hasmah by your side.

  122. mubarakchan Apr 18,2019 10:09 AM

    Tun

    Congratulations and Best Wishes for your inclusion in the Time 100 2019 of the 100 most influential personalities of the World.

    This heartens me that you are ONE OF ONLY ELEVEN POLITICAL LEADERS so recognised which included President Trump and President Xi Jin-ping. The other 89 personalities have nothing to do with Political Statesmanship.

    What is so significant about this recognition of your life-long contribution to our beloved Malaysia and the World is that you DID NOT INDULGE IN BLUFFOLOGY AND HAVE NO BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS. You call a spade a spade which a trained scientist should.

    Not only that, instead of killing thousands of innocent men, women and children to attain self-serving needs which you did not,

    YOU WITH YOUR BARE HANDS SAVED MANY LIVES AND LATER ON THE WIDER STAGE OF POLITICS YOU CREATED THE 6 MILLION MALAY MIDDLE INCOME FAMILLIES WHICH IN TURN HAVE BECOME AN INTERACTIVE FORCE WITH THE 6 MILLION NON-MALAY MIDDLE INCOME FAMILLIES BY WAY OF CONSUMERISM AND SERVICES.

    Which country in the World has such a Leader who has HUMANITY AT HEART ?

    Your Greatest Legacy is to guide and nurture a group of honest, motivated and sustainable young Leaders to LEAD OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO THE LIKES OF VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN.

    No more shallow thinking about CASH IS KING but decades of SERVICE TO KING AND COUNTRY WITH SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. How many will last the pace is yet to be seen, Tun ?

    With you as our example of fine Leadership without a peer, I am certain our hopes and aspirations for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat will come to pass. What is MONEY MONEY MONEY ? It is good to have some.

    But at the end of the day, IT IS OUR SUCCESSES AND FAILURES WHICH CANNOT BE ERASED AND RECORDED IN HISTORY – The finest arbiter of the Truth.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling. The World will smile with you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah always.

  123. mubarakchan Apr 17,2019 10:34 AM

    Tun

    Unlike you, DSAI and your aide, how many of your Team and all the Malaysians understand that at this very moment, our beloved Malaysia stands proud, strong and united despite the flurries of paper darts thrown by the subdued Opposition ?

    At this moment, it is like Merdeka of the Tunku in 1957, the NEP of Tun Abdul Razak and the beginning of a New Malaysia under your guidance to reach a New beginning which cannot be reached through politics but SOCIO-ECONOMICS.

    It is the socio-economics which will be the glue that binds the different communities together to form the politics of the future. The Future of the Young and the Old.

    Which country is better placed to do GREAT THINGS IN THE INTERESTS OF HER PEOPLES LITERALLY BASED ON A CLEAN SLATE free from LEADERSHIP CORRUPTION AND ABUSE OF POWER ? Only our beloved Malaysia as I see it.

    Even though you have a few really good Ministers in your Team, those lacking need to constrain themselves and focus on delivery of resolutions of present problems which have been neglected by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites 2004-2018.

    The latter should look back into history and compare it with the present for a better understanding of issues at hand.

    In a country like Malaysia, social issues have always loomed large in our Society like the aged, single mothers, neglected children, addicts, unemployment etc. And these will loom ever larger as the country urbanises when the young eschew extended families and good filial beliefs.

    I believe most of the Ministers holding extensive portfolios can perform if only they do some homework instead of relying on their Civil Service flunkies eg. Ministry of Commodities, Ministry of Environment etc.

    I rate highly the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Defence, Finance, Economic Affairs, Transport, Labour, Information, Sports & Youth, Education (if only this Minister knew that the first BN mega deal was the Maybank-Kim Eng Securities which made some very rich) and the lady Minister who talks sense all the time – Local Government

    As for the Minister in charge of the Laws, he should begin to amend all the neglected Laws caused by the BN Government and not to read out sections of the Bankruptcy Act 1967 and tell the World that everything is OK and the bankrupts provided for. He should read The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018 for an independent view of the bankrupts of which there are over 500,000 urban votes.

    BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PORTFOLIO OF ALL SHOULD BE THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM FOR THE MOMENT..

    This is the key to the quick revival of foreign cash flow into Malaysia. The Minister should not be overwhelmed by the delights of Tourism and should realise that TOURISM IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS WHERE IT IS PROFIT DRIVEN and not a joy-ride for the Minister.

    The World War 2 flattened Germany, Japan and Italy.

    IT WAS THROUGH TOURISM THAT THEY ROSE AGAIN. None of their Ministers of Tourism travelled the World unlike our BN Ministers of Tourism. These German, Japanese and Italian Ministers worked hard at home to ensure that the tourists, the travel agents, airlines, rail and sea transports get the best deals. This was what it should be for them through hard work so that all win with profits and not like our Ministers of Tourism who enjoyed travelling the World at the Rakyat’s expense.

    To this day, nearly 12 months from 9 May 2018, it has been deadly quiet from the Ministry of Tourism apart from the LGBT faux pas in Berlin, the capital of Europe’s LGBT !

    Tourism for Malaysia is like pushing an envelope, the more the pushing the more the returns. The focus should be on Asia and the Middle East where the middle classes are rising. We should not be shy to say that we push for 30 million tourists a year – like this we get 28 million.

    The country needs a sensible and dynamic spark to spark off a campaign at home to bring in the tourists beginning with the travel agents – the rest will automatically follow. I believe our beloved Malaysia is now one of the best and cheapest countries to visit.

    Cheap travel, accommodation with security are important for the good name in tourism.

    Travel agents must make money – NOT ALL THOSE MALAYSIAN CIVIL SERVANTS IN THE PAST beginning in the mid-1980s- one even has his own university now !

    To push TOURISM is only a matter of hard-work with consideration for the tourists and the travel agents. The rewards of forex will be satisfying and all-embracing.

    Lee Kuan Yew put his sister-in-law in charge of the Singapore Tourist Board for a life-time – No monkey business tolerated by him.

    SADDIQ is a good candidate for the Ministry of Tourism to get results.-

    Focus on Asia and the Middle East, focus to improve all at home, focus on the travel agents to make profits, focus on security for the tourists, focus on increasing employment in the tourist industry, focus on discipline and standards, and no monkey business in the local hospitality industry etc,- the forex will flow in like what happened to post war Germany, Japan and Italy. If these countries could do it from zero base, Malaysia should do better !

    Do not be like the BN Minister who spent the Rakyat’s money to promote London via the English upper class Royal Chelsea Flower Show and was awarded a Gold Medal by the Queen. Stupid.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Very good times are just a whisper away with DSAI and the Team by your side. As you correctly pointed out, ” IT’S THE MIND-SET ” Acheh !

    Many readers must be wondering what is my basis for saying that the WEALTH OF THE MALAYS WAS WIPED OUT BY 50 PERCENT BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES.

    This is my answer with the corollary that the Chinese, the Indians and all of the middle income and working groups being affected as well, thus :-

    1. Between 2004-2018 RM 1.50 Trillion cash was siphoned out of Malaysia.and her economy. Vide International Surveys like UN or IMF

    2. This weakens the Malaysian Ringgit from RM 2.5 to RM 4.0 to a US Dollar.

    3. Since Malaysia is a free market economy, the price of all our imported goods go up accordingly giving rise to inflation and increase in the cost of living in all items from cars, foods, books, etc.

    4. With higher costs of our essentials, we need to bring out MORE money to pay for them.

    5. BUT OUR WAGES DO NOT GO UP BECAUSE OUR EMPLOYERS ARE ALSO NOT MAKING MONEY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT HAS LESS MONEY TO SPEND DUE TO THE HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY SIPHONED OUT OF THE SYSTEM BY THE CROOKS.

    6. With the rise in the cost of living, the prices of land and houses dropped due to the lack of avenues for the purchasers to make money.

    7. To make matters worst, the Singapore Puppet Corrupt BN Government and its equally corrupt elites GAVE OUT CASH AS A SOP TO THE POPULACE under BR1M. Actually, this was an insult to any informed Rakyat because they stole billions of ringgits out of the System and give pea-nuts to those WHO ELECTED THEM INTO POWER. Stupid.

    8. The worst was the ennobled nobles who dished out billions and billions out of the poor Malay Trusts to some rich Chinese by buying rubbish from them and sold them valuable poor Malay Trust assets very cheaply.

    BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS BELONGING TO THE POOR MALAY TRUSTS DISAPPEARED, INFLATION, RISING COST OF LIVING, FALL IN LANDED PROPERTY PRICES, LACK OF POTENTIAL TO HAVE A JOB OR MAKE MONEY, A POWERLESS BN GOVERNMENT TO ADOPT THE RIGHT POLICIES, INSTITUTIONS IN TROUBLE ETC WIPED OUT THE REAL AND PERCIEVED WEALTH OF THE MALAYS BY AT LEAST 50 PERCENT WHICH WAS PAINSTAKINGLY BUILT UP FROM 2 PERCENT SINCE 1971.

    Sentiments affected the Sime Darby price which should be at least RM 6 and not RM 2. See the wealth lost for the Malays and all as well.

    NO NON-MALAYS WILL ESCAPE FROM THE WIPE OUT OF THE MALAYSIAN ECONOMY AND THE MALAY TRUSTS ASSETS. We are all in the same boat.

    We will have to begin again to regain our better standards of living and livelihood.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We all stand united, strong and proud with you to put our beloved Malaysia on the top pedestal again. No problem. MONEY CAN BE MADE AGAIN BUT TRUST THESE FOLKS AGAIN NEVER.

    Many readers must be asking how I come to know so much about cheating in the plantation industry. In fact, I know just as much about cheating in the tin mining industry and the manufacturing industries as well.

    First, all my money left to me by my father was borrowed by my eldest brother who could not repay me so that I could go to Stanford to do research in therapeutics. I was stuck in KL and became a houseman at the KLGH earning RM 401 per month. After a stint with the US Army Medical Research Unit Walter Reed which paid me RM1,200, I was involved in the cleaning up of my family rubber estate in North Johore.

    I sacked all the kepalas at one go. They were corrupted because my brothers never visited the estate for over 20 years. Each kepalas had 2 wives and was using the Estate as their store-house for fertilizers etc.

    Second, I managed a tin mine near Tanjong Rambutan. There was stealing again of the among right in the kongsi office. I sacked the whole lot.

    Third, I was invited to turn round the biggest textile factory in Malaysia, Folex Industries Berhad now known as Sri Hartamas Berhad. On the first day, I sacked the 8 Taiwanese and replaced them with 3 Malaysians, 2 Chinese and I Malay. And stopped the huge theft of goods as waste.

    This was where I learnt that Factory wastes and palm oil factory waste is worth a lot of money.

    HENCE, THE SYNDICATE TO WALLOP ALL THE GLC PLANTATION PALM OIL WASTE BY THE TOP BN LEADERSHIP. I wonder if the syndicatge still operates ? The waste is worth millions of ringgits here.

    Fourth, I was on the Board of Dunlop Estates Berhad. I objected to the sale of the oil palm fruits or rubber to a Chinese company which could always give a HIGHER PRICE than any other.

    My objection was turned down because the MD told me London instructed him to accept the highest price.

    THE CATCH WAS THE CHINAMEN CORRUPTED THIS YOUNG MELAKA FELLOW WITH TWO WIVES AT THE WEIGHBRIDGE. HENCE, A LOT OF THE PRODUCE PASSED THROUGH THE WEIGHBRIDGE OFF THE RECORD !

    This Melaka fellow ended up in Sime Darby. The rest is history with 2 gigantic Sime Darby bankruptcies and sale of valuable asset cheaply to Chinamen as documented by me previously. ONE ROTTEN APPLE IS ENOUGH TO SPOIL THE REST.

    From my experience in managing plantations, tin mines and factories in Malaysia, I never wanted to build a corporate empire.

    In fact, I sold 5 listed companies because I know how the end will turn out to be. I did not want my family to be cheated by those they trust OR THEY CHEAT EACH OTHER. Here are another 3 examples.

    1. One young Chinese was earning RM 550 for MIDF when I employed him in 1975. His father was a kepala in a British rubber estate near Nilai. He could send his son to the University of Western Australia and ended up with 16 acres of plantation land on the Selangor-Negri border through stealing his employer’s rubber.

    2. An aged Chinese couple entrusted their small estate near Rawang to a manager who robbed them blind.

    3. I know at least 2 listed plantation companies which founders were thieves who robbed their employers blind and became rich, very rich.

    It is difficult to own a plantation or a tin mine in Malaysia due to the thieving culture which exists in the industry. A Manager of an estate is the King in his Kingdom if the owners are not hands-on owners who monitor and check every detail.

    TODAY THE THIEVING OF A PLANTATION’S ASSETS IS AS COMMON AS DRINKING WATER.

    This is the black plantation industry which also had its equivalent in the past. This black activity is indulged by those with the means to participate. Hence, THE ORGANISED THEFT OF THE GLCs PLANTATION’S PALM OIL WASTES FROM THE OIL MILLS. This is a TAX FREE MULTI-BILLION RINGGIT BUSINESS ANNUALLY.

    The decades of stealing of plantation assets belonging to the owners ERUPTED INTO ONE GIGANTIC THEFT AFFECTING ALL THE GLCs PLANTATION TRUSTS AS WE CAN NOW SEE IN LTAT, FELDA SIME DARBY ETC. It’s not money for jam. IT’S MONEY FOR FREE BY STEALING FROM THE OWNERS.ie. LTAT, FELDA SIME DARBY etc by the billions of ringgits annually.

    Those gigantic crooked deals by LTAT, FELDA, SIME DARBY etc could be considered as the LAST HURRAH BY THE ENNOBLED CROOKS.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Cheating, stealing in factories, plantations, tin mines, companies etc in Malaysia, are subjects which I know like the back of my hand as I also specialised in the restructuring of bankrupt companies, big and small, my whole life long where white collar crooks were a dime a dozen.

    This morning is a typical fine Malaysian morning even the bulbuls got up late at 7 a.m. I don’t blame them for living in this wonderful land of ours. But look at all the absurd MONEY MONEY MONEY problems created by all those ennobled nobles with the POWER entrusted to them by the Rakyat. THEY ALL LOST THEIR SENSES AND STOLE THE MONEY HELD IN TRUST BY THEM !

    Kudos to you as PRIME MINISTER OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA to clinch a very fine deal of the ECRL with the Chinese Government – the media claim it is the first of its kind.

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS ARE AWARE THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BECAME ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA ? Where are you Singapore ?

    Not only that, Malaysia is the politically strategic being located in the most important choke point in the World. This China and all the World recognise. And our beloved Malaysia has good peoples from 3 ancient civilizations and all living in a politically stable land full of natural resources which we should not waste.

    Thanks to you Tun and your efficient and competent aide, our beloved Malaysia is now ready and on the path to zoom up to the Greats like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, and Good Governance Japan.

    As I said before, our beloved Malaysia becomes financially stronger day by day especially with the ECRL in place to begin work tomorrow. The Construction Industry is a must and the No. 1 priority for our economy to fast trek upwards again. More construction the better all round.

    And with the ECRL back on an even and normal keel, our friendship with China is back to NORMAL.

    For the very first time, China found out to her cost like my analogy that unlike Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea which all have only one door to enter. Malaysia has 10 doors. Behind every door, a smiling and friendly Malaysian. And when asked, he would reply, ‘ No problem ‘ This was when the problem began. To enter the right door in Malaysia under the BN Government was a problem. Where else but Malaysia ?

    It is good very good Tun that your wisdom and common sense led to the amicable resolution of the complicated Chinese puzzle known as ECRL.

    THE WORLD LIKES WINNERS. EVEN FORBES JUMPED IN FIRST WITH A LAUDABLE COMMENT. What more can we ask for Tun ?

    With China as a major investor, our beloved Malaysia must now invite ALL NATIONS OF THE WORLD TO INVEST AS WELL TO KEEP A NEUTRAL BALANCE FOR MALAYSIA’S NEUTRALITY IN THE NEXUS OF ASEAN AND THE WORLD.

    Your brilliance and courage in facing the Chinese Dragon is now lauded by all who like winners. More FDI will flow in from now on because the whole World is looking for a place like the NEW MALAYSIA after 9 May 2018 ! It’s a small World Tun !

    This time no more crooked closest aides who collect Stradivarius violins, no more crooked ennobled nobles etc.

    Our beloved Malaysia must move up to the next tier of economic advance based on

    i) easy to understand education with English for all,

    ii) up-grade the essential Laws like the Companies Act 1965, the Bankruptcy Act 1967 – Vide The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018, the Trustees Act 1949 etc.

    iii)abolish all monopolies like the archaic Discount House System,

    iv) reduce the politicking and do more work,

    v) jobs for all with better salaries and last but not least

    vi) the best Health Care in the World with constant monitoring of infectious diseases like TB, Malaria etc.

    Generally, to create a better playing field once again for the Rakyat to succeed.

    vii) The unrevised Bankruptcy Act 1967 which the BN Government replaced with a FAKE attachment LOCKS IN 500,000 BANKRUPTS OF WHICH OVER 200,000 ARE YOUNG MALAYS BY NOT GIVING ALL A SECOND CHANCE UNLIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, AUSTRALIA AND BRITAIN. It was claimed that financial interests wanted to punish the bankrupts which they dare not do in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Britain BECAUSE THESE COUNTRIES ARE NOT CORRUPT LIKE MALAYSIA !

    With the cake more or less now in place for all the Rakyat to benefit, THE ICING WILL BE THE BILLIONS OF STOLEN RINGGITS ARE RETRIEVED AND THE CROOKS ARE JAILED.

    Our lives go on, Tun ! Keep smiling !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. I always wondered why the crooks wanted so much money in their short lives!

    Sorry, typo error in my previous comment. It should be as follows :

    SIME DARBY

    “……2,000 acres of the Nova Scotia estate near Rawang was sold to the MCA Leader for RM 4 Million without the Board’s consent which actual price was a minimum of RM 88 Million -the price paid to the MCA Leader by Selangor Perangsang and the Chinese Tan Sri of Talam.”

    Thanks to your brilliance and courage to oust the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and the GLCs, here is an incomplete list of ennobled nobles making the poor Malays poor and the very few rich Chinese very rich. These ennobled nobles lost all their senses, thus :-

    1. TELEKOM. HOW CAN A MONOPOLY LOSES MONEY ? It is because Telekom bought rubbish from companies like the Green Packet and other Chinese owned companies at exorbitant prices. Now Telekom is selling their best assets. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    2. SIME DARBY. The ennobled Management began this corruption eruption first in the mid-1980s with the sale of Benta by the ex-MCA Chairman to the MCA Leader. Here is the list which Sime Darby BOUGHT EXPENSIVE ASSETS OF NO VALUE FROM THE VERY RICH CHINESE OR SOLD CHEAP TO THEM ie.

    i) 1990. 2,000 acres of Nova Scotia estate near Rawang was sold to the MCA Leader without the Board’s consent for RM 4 Million which value was actually a minimum of RM ** Million, the price bought from the MCA Leader by Selangor Perangsang and the Chinese Tan Sri of Talam who turned it into a tropical slum – Bukit Berendum.

    ii) 1992. Bought a PONDAN OIL PALM estate from a crooked Chinese for RM 32 Million which no one wanted for 20 years at RM 20 Million. I OBJECTED AND WAS ASKED TO RESIGN IMMEDIATELY BY THE ENNOBLED MANAGEMENT ! Crooks sided with crooks.

    111) 1996. Permitted a Chinese crook to speculate with RM 350 Million of Sime Bank’s money. SIME DARBY WENT BANKRUPT IN 1997.

    iv) Bought the only huge estate in Liberia which no one wanted in the land of EBOLA. Now no one wants to buy !

    v) The ennobled nobles always travelled by Serendipity Air through Sime’s own agent Lucy who collected US$ 30,000 for every US$ 100,000 spent by Sime Darby – Hitler’s ex-spy Canaris family’s oil outfit’s head honcho in Egypt told me.

    3. 1MDB. A Chinese boy aged 24 was permitted to control RM 42 Billion of the Government of Malaysia’s money.

    4. FELDA. Huge debts of up to RM 14 Billion were created by the ennobled nobles. An Indonesian Chinese took the biggest bite with pocketing RM 2.4 Billion when his shares were worth only RM 350 Million and now much less. MONEY GONE FOREVER.

    5. LTAT. This cannot be any worse when the ennobled noble who were in charge of the plantations for 35 years paid RM 740 Million of the poor soldiers money to a very rich Chinese for his PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE of hilly terrain and less than 10 FFB per acre when the National Average is 20-24 FFB per acre. The estate is small only 11,400 acres of fragmented lots ! Believe it or not. An estate which no one wanted for over 25 years !

    And LTAT bought more rubbish from the Chinese at exorbitant prices being oil palm estates and the AES companies.

    TH. Did the ennobled nobles buy expensive rubbish from the Chinese using the poor pilgrims money ?

    IT IS CLEAR THAT THESE ENNOBLED NOBLES LOST THEIR SENSES BY SELLING VALUABLE ASSETS OF THE POOR MALAYS BUILT UP BY OUR PRIME MINISTER TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS PREDECESSORS OVER TIME AT VERY LOW PRICES TO A FEW VERY RICH CHINESE AND BOUGHT RUBBISH FROM THE VERY FEW CHINESE AT VERY HIGH PRICES. Instead of safeguarding the poor Malays wealth, these nobles made the poor Malays poorer and the few very rich Chinese even richer. Stupid.

    THE MACC, THE LHDN, THE POLICE SHOULD CATCH THE CROOKS AND CHARGE THEM IN COURT. ALL OF THE CROOKS WERE TRUSTEES OF POOR MALAY TRUSTS.

    BOTH THE BUYER AND SELLER SHOULD BE CHARGED AND FINED ACCORDINGLY FOR CONSPIRACY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    ALL THE ABOVE CRIMES INVOLVED THE BUYER AND THE SELLER IN FRAUD, THEFT, BREACH OF TRUST, CHEATING AND CONSPIRACY

    With a headline like this ‘ CRUNCH TIME FOR BOUSTEAD ‘, IT IS TIME FOR THE GENERALS OF THE MALAYSIAN ARMY AND THE ARMY AND ALL THE EX-GENERALS AND THE VETERANS TO CATCH HOLD OF THIS ENNOBLED FELLOW WHO SERVED THEM FOR 35 YEARS AND WAS PAID MILLIONS OF RINGGITS AND HIS CHINESE CONSPIRATOR FOR ALLEGED FRAUD, THEFT, CHEATING AND CONSPIRACY.

    The solid evidence is all there i.e. RM 740 Million for 11,400 acres of PONDAN OIL PALMS with less than half the fresh fruit bunches (FFB) production of an average plantation which is 20-24 tonnes of FFB per acre. Even the badly managed Sime Darby has more and is a good comparison.

    WITH SOLID EVIDENCE, THE CONSPIRATORS CANNOT ESCAPE.

    HOW COULD THIS ENNOBLED FELLOW THINK HE CAN ESCAPE SCRUTINY WHO WAS CORRUPT ENOUGH TO PAY OFF RM 740 MILLION EVEN AFTER THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT LOST POWER ON 9 MAY 2018 ?

    Also he bought many other pondan oil palm estates at exorbitant prices.

    THIS ENNOBLED FELLOW CONTROLLING THE WEALTH OF THE VETERANS AND SOLDIERS IN TRUST IS AS BAD AS 1MDB BECAUSE HE BETRAYED THE SOLDIERS TRUST BY BUYING RUBBISH PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATES FROM THE CROOKED CHINESE AND LOST THE WEALTH LIKE THIS BY MAKING THEM POOR !

    No crooks like these are to be permitted to escape. LET THE RULE OF LAW PREVAILS !

    THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT SHOULD RETRIEVE ALL THE HARD-EARNED MONEY BELONGING TO THE SERVING SOLDIERS AND THE VETERANS.

    Catch all the conspirators buyer and seller. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    The decades of hard work, toil, blood, sweat and sacrifice by millions of hard working Malaysians in support of their good and honest Leaders like the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad !

    Overnight, the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites 2004-2018 spent ALL AND MORE OF THE RAKYAT’S HARD EARNED MONEY.WHICH INCLUDED THE MALAYS TRUST MONEY !

    THESE RULERS USED MALAY TRUST MONEY IN 1MDB, SIME DARBY, LTAT, FELDA, TH AND ALL THE OTHERS TO MAKE A FEW CROOKED CHINESE RICH, VERY RICH BY BUYING FAKE CHINESE ASSETS AND SELLING REAL VALUABLE ASSETS AT PASAR MALAM PRICES THE FEW CROOKED CHINESE.

    These ennobled fellows swore to carry out their assigned duties too.

    Not only a few crooked Chinese but foreigners too like the Indonesian Chinese High Eagle where a listed share could be bought by the Malaysian Government managed entity at RM 2.04 Billion when its value was only RM 350 Million. The money has gone forever !

    AND THE INDONESIAN CHINESE SAID IN PRINT THAT THEY KNEW NO ONE IN MALAYSIA WITH POWER OR INFLUENCE.

    Of course, they too like the Singaporeans THINK WE MALAYSIANS ARE ABSOLUTELY STUPID which we cannot deny !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    THANKS TO THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES 2004-2018 THE WEALTH OF THE MALAYS WHICH WE ALL BUILT UP FROM 2%, 1971-2003 HAS NOW BEEN REDUCED BY 50%. We now have to begin all over again. Better late than never, Tun.

    Unlike our politicians, my friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree stopped their chirping and singing. Here is a list of empty suggestions from a brand new YB who loved to dress in fancy dress and eat exotic foods to the chagrin of her hosts. thus :-

    1. She proposed a New Bill to stop bottom pinching which has been going on since Adam and Eve. She is not aware of the essential Laws to be up-dated for the Rakyat eg. the Company Act 1965, the Bankruptcy Act 1967 and the Trustees Act 1949 which were all neglected by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Non-caring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    2. Any one who proposed a nursery in a Parliament in the West would be sent to the mental hospital for good. Where else but Malaysia.?

    3. She has just discovered that child abuse only happened in broken homes. And she declared accordingly to all and sundry immediately.

    4. Her latest is that there should be a moratorium on the building of condos in Mont Kiara/Sri Hartamas because of traffic congestion. She is in dreamland because of the following :-

    i) The economy is so bad that any proposal to build should be lauded. One should not snuff out a flickering fire.

    ii) If all building is to be stopped because of traffic congestion, there will be no building construction anywhere in Malaysia or the World. Development to provide jobs and revenue must go on.

    111) The only place where there is no traffic congestion is in the cemetery.

    iv) The YB should tell us which city in the World has no traffic congestion because no condos were built ? Timbuktoo ?

    There is only one place where this YB should be at His Majesty’s payroll !

    It must be the Monday morning blues for the Opposition media, there was only one headline of note, thus :-

    1. ” MORE TO SELL OFF IN TENAGA ”

    Of course, the TENAGA will soon sell their grand-mothers down river if they pay their Non-executive Directors RM 20,000 a month without working from 8 a.m. to 5 a.m.!

    This matches the pay of the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    Each and everyone of the TENAGA NON-EXECYTIVE DIRECTORS will be a MILLIONAIRE BY IN 4 YEARS JUST BY DOING NO WORK IN TENAGA ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    Where even an ordinary fellow is paid RM 100 MILLION A YEAR BY IHH TO MANAGE THE MONEY OF OTHERS BUT NOT HIS OWN ! Where else but Malaysia ? The land of the very rich without doing any work but to steal from the Rakyat.

    A word on the ‘PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATES OF THE LTAT PORTFOLIO BOUGHT AT ASTRONOMICAL PRICES’ NOT ONLY ONE AT RM 740 MILLION BUT MANY OTHERS !

    A PONDAN OIL PALM BEARS NO FRUITS because from young it did not receive the requisite nutrient foods like fertilizers, water and air adequately. Palms planted on hilly terrain where the soil is poor in natural nutrients, bear no fruits. The fruit bunches are heavy and difficult to transport in steep hilly terrain in estates where every inch of soil counts. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO TURN A PONDANT OIL PALM TREE NORMAL AGAIN. A PONDANT OIL PALM A TREE IS RUINED FOREVER. An oil palm tree is expected to last 25 years. The price LTAT paid was based on SUPER FRUIT BUNCH PRODUCING PALMS which are not found in Malaysia !

    Vide The learned and authoritative tome written by our distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail. No lies, no bluffing, no cheating and no stealing !

    No sane investor will buy an oil palm estates separated into little lots LIKE WHAT LTAT PAID THE CHINESE RM 740 MILLION FOR.

    Costs of running from one section to another increase accordingly.

    It is because of the fragmented nature of this RM 740 Million amongst all the NEGATIVE factors that no one wanted this rubbish for over 25 years until the right corrupted fool came along and spent the money of the poor veterans including the GENERALS !

    THEREFORE LTAT WITH SO MANY PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATES PAID SOLID VETERANS MONEY FOR RUBBISH. THE WHOLE LOT HAS TO BE RE-PLANTED AGAIN AT ASTRONOMICAL COSTS. Again Government bail-out ?

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN ! All the other readers of this, proposed 1,000 strokes !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem until there was as CRISIS IN MORALS AND ETHICS WITH THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES 2004-2018 !

    Sad to say this all began with Sime Darby and the Benta sale orchestrated by those top MCA fellows in the early 1980s who blamed it on me ! I knew nothing about it until months later when I read about it in the Singapore Business Times. I rushed to see Mrs Lee Kuan Yew who told me I was a non-starter as I was too late and besides it was not worthwhile.

    Kudos to Tun Daim for killing three birds with one stone arising from his difficult negotiations with the Chinese Government.

    First, Tun Daim succeeded to convince the Chinese authorities to revamp major parts of the ECRL to bring down the Project to a manageable cost.

    Second, he has restored back the Normal Friendship and Diplomacy between two friendly Nations.

    Third, as a result new Chinese investments will flow in concomitantly with other foreign investments which now see our beloved Malaysia in a new light. 2019 FDI will zoom to new heights.to restore our beloved Malaysia to a better financial status.

    And all these 3 achievements will provide a solid platform or wherewithal for your forthcoming visit to Beijing.

    The Opposition NSTP mischievously called Tun Daim’s significant achievement in bringing down the cost of ECRL from RM 60 Billion to RM 40 Billion ” a tweak ! ” A huge sum that could build 2 Twin PETRONAS Towers as Tun Daim said.

    And unusually this morning, a Saturday, I got up early to ferry my grand-daughter to the all-day forum on Science and Maths at Subang. As soon as I unlatched the front door, the friendly bulbuls in the young banyan tree began to chirp and sing. This again made my day. Happily they are still in residence !

    How many Malaysians realise that ennobled Malaysians manning all the icons of Malay Trusts, 1MDB, TH, FELDA, LTAT, Sime Darby etc. SOLD OFF THE VALUABLE ASSETS OF THESE MALAY TRUSTS AT EXTREMELY LOW PRICES WITHOUT VALUATION TO CROOKED CHINESE IN CONTRAVENTION OF THE NEP AND BOUGHT ASSETS OF NO VALUE FROM THE CROOKED CHINESE AT EXTREMELY HIGH PRICES AGAIN IN CONTRAVENTION OF THE NEP ?

    All these Malay Trusts originated from the establishment of the NEP 1972. Here are the true examples :-

    1. 1MDB – Yachts, jets, US mansions, diamonds, power stations, low grade property, self-indulgence, etc which cost RM 50 Billion of the Rakyat’s money..

    2. FELDA – Public money was used to buy RM 2.1 Billion of Eagle High shares worth only RM 350 Million from an Indonesian Chinese. The rest of its padded purchases overseas were from non-Malays. In direct contravention of the NEP. The ultimate interest of the poor Malay settlers were ignored.

    3. LTAT. A headline ” CRUNCH TIME FOR BOUSTEAD “.

    Just before the 14 GE, Boustead Pertama Estates bought the Pondan Sabah Estate at over RM 740 Million.

    I know this Estate very well.

    This Pondan Estate was purchased from some gullible Taiwanese who had an office in Tawau. I visited them in 2000 for information. They pulled a black and long face at me because they foolishly exchanged their 11,579 acres for a listed company paper shares at RM 3.40 per share. By the time, I met them in 2000 this listed share was below RM 1 which eventually found a bottom at 40 sens ! I believe they foolishly accepted a moratorium forbidding a sale of their shares within a certain period.

    So, the present Chinese vendor got the 11,579 acres FREE which he now on-sold to the ennobled Malaysian who managed LTAT for 35 years at RM 740 MILLION OF WHICH ALL IS BORROWED MONEY as the record showed as at 31 December 2018.

    WHO SAYS THERE IS DISCRIMINATION IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ?

    And the FAKE PLANTER DEFENDED THIS INDEFENSIBLE DEAL IN ” THE EDGE “. Stupid. Why hilly terrain difficult ? Because the fruit bunches are heavy and hilly terrain in a plantation is just bad news. And this Estate is a Pondan Estate because it was NOT MAINTAINED NORMALLY FOR DECADES. Replanting costs for such a terrain is ASTRONOMICAL ! This was why the Chinaman spent NO MONEY on his Pondan Estate.

    Hence, PONDAN PALMS + HILLS + 50% LOWER YIELD = BIG LOSS OF RM 740 MILLION. We do not need a rocket scientist from Singapore to work this one out ! Stupid Fake Planter ! This fellow should be sacked forthwith as being CORRUPT which is absolutely dangerous in the planting industry spanning over thousands of acres. THEFT IS A COMMON OCCURENCE IN THESE LONELY PLACES.

    NO PLANTER EVER BORROWS TO REPLANT OR EXPAND A PLANTATION.

    Only fools do so.

    THERE WERE NO FOOLS IN THE PLANTATION INDUSTRY FOR OVER 100 YEARS UNTIL THE ADVENT OF FELDA, SIME DARBY AND LTAT (AFTER 2003 but Sime Darby after 1990) WHICH WERE ALL MANAGED BY THESE ENNOBLED GENTLEMEN WHO SPECIALISED IN BUYING AT THE HIGHEST PRICES OR SELLING AT THE LOWEST WHEREVER POSSIBLE FROM OR TO THE CHINESE !

    The name of the game in the Plantation Industry is to buy at the lowest during a recession !

    Apart from the Pondan Estate in a hilly terrain in Sabah caper, LTAT bought the AES companies at a HUGE PRICE of RM 430 Million for no good reason !

    The LTAT debt will now zoom up to more then RM 1 Billion WITH MANY USELESS PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATES BOUGHT AT THE HIGHEST PRICES IN ITS PORTFOLIO using the poor beneficiaries hard-earned money. Stupid.

    4. The infamous Sime Darby Management started it all, thus :-

    i) Sold for a song BENTA BERHAD in the 1980s, to the MCA Leader who eventually went to jail

    ii) Sime Darby sold VERY CHEAP in 1990 – Sold to the same MCA Leader, 2,000 acres of Nova Scotia estate near Rawang for RM 4 Million which value was ACTUALLY RM 88 Million which was the price paid to this same MCA Leader by Selangor Perangsang and a Chinese Tan Sri Talam !

    FANTASTIC DEALS BY SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT.

    iii) Sime Darby bought VERY EXPENSIVE in 1992 the Pondan Oil Palm Sabah Estate owned by a crooked Chinese owned listed Company for RM 32 Million which no one wanted for 20 years at RM 20 Million .AGAINST MY OBJECTION.!.

    iv) Sime Darby bought the bankrupt LAC refrigerator company after 1992 and put it in Manila where it was written off as alleged. Why ?

    v) Sime Darby bought all the plantations in LIBERIA after 1992 the home of EBOLA which never made a sen. Strange.

    vi) In 1995, Sime Darby bought Sandestin Golf Resort, Florida to train Malaysians in hotel management.

    The Sime Darby Management was not aware that the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak established MARA in the 1960s to do the same. Strange.

    The Sime Darby Management claimed they did not lose money by selling Sandestin at RM 72 Million in 1997 which was the same price of RM 72 Million before DEVALUATION. These fellows think all are fools like them who sold the Nova Scotia property for RM 4 Million when the actual MINIMUM VALUE was RM 88 Million..

    vii) The Sime Darby Management bought a British bankrupt condom company JIFFY which they wrote off in a jiffy !

    Those Malaysians, hundreds of thousands of them who contributed with the blood, sweat and toil like your good self Tun who CREATED THE 6 MILLION MALAY FAMILLIES MIDDLE INCOME GROUP AND ALL THE GOODIES FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT can only treat this ennobled Malaysians with disdain. What a shame !

    INSTEAD OF MAKING THE POOR MALAY RAKYAT RICH, THESE ENNOBLED MALAYSIANS MADE SOME CROOKS OF THE CHINESE COMMUNITY RICH, VERY RICH ! This is Travesty of Justice in any language !

    THIS GROUP OF ENNOBLED MALAYSIANS WHO SOLD AT THE CHEAPEST PRICE THE VALUABLE ASSETS OWNED BY THE MALAYS HELD IN TRUST BY THEM TO CROOKED MEMBERS OF THE CHINESE COMMUNITY AND LIKEWISE BOUGHT ASSETS OF NO VALUE FROM THE SAME TYPE OF PEOPLE FOR THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE PRICE. This is treason of the First Order.

    AND THE TOTAL EFFECT OF ALL THESE THEFTS BY THE THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA REDUCED THE WEALTH OF THE MALAYS SO PAINSTAKINGLY BUILD UP BY YOU AND YOUR PREDECESSORS BY AT LEAST 50 PERCENT !

    One Trillion ringgits were siphoned out between 2002-2010 and another RM 500 Billion between 2011-2018 as reported. How do those Malaysians who helped to build up the Wealth of our beloved Malaysia feel ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan always..

    We must not forget why Proton lost money. I put the blame on the CLOSEST AIDES WHO MANAGED THE PROTON GROUP ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNEMENT.
    For the following reasons :-

    1. The Closest Aides knew absolutely nothing about manufacturing.

    2. All of them walloped the money in Proton big-time eg. wastes, padding radios, sun visors, wheel rims (5 per car) batteries, tyres etc. ALL THESE FAKE PRICES AMOUNTED TO WHAT THE GOVERENMENT SUBSIDIZED PROTON.

    3. Like this how can Proton make money ?

    4. And they put the BLAME on you. Look at these fellows how rich they are today eg. owners of public listed companies, businesses, Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece etc.

    YOUR CONCEPT WAS CORRECT WITH PROTON BUT SCREWED UP BY THE CLOSEST AIDES WHO ARE ALL VREY RICH NOW AT THE RAKYAT’S EXPENSE AND YOUR HONEST REPUTATION !

    WHY NONE OF THE CLOSEST AIDES OWN UP AND ADMIT THEY WERE ALL INVOLVED IN CORRUPTION AND THEFT ? Because they were ALL INVOLVED AS A SYNDICATE OF SILENCE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. NO CLOSEST AIDES ANYMORE !

    At the beginning of the 1MDB great robbery, most of us including myself thought it was only a one off thing coupled with over-spending by those in command and hangers-on of Israelis and other Hollywood camp followers. But with my RM 3.50 nasi lemak and my the tarik, my eyes were struck blind by the obat or ubat tainted headlines every morning in recent days !

    And not forgetting my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree. They are still there and began their morning chore at 6.55 a.m. because I was a wee bit late. Great birds of a feather !

    The IMMORALITY OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES KNEW NO BOUNDS.

    Take the TNB AGM announcement today. RM20,000 monthly payment to non-executive Directors amounting to RM 240,000 per year. This is way above any decent emoluments for Directors who actually contribute nothing. Still Companies like TNB lose money and go bankrupt. THIS IS IMMORAL AND INFECT OUR MORALS OF GOOD STANDING AND ETHICS.

    It is just a simple ploy conjured up by the TNB Executives to balloon up the non-executives emoluments first then they are justified to boost their own. THIS PLOY IS AS OLD AS THE HILLS, TUN !

    For 18 years service with Sime Darby I was paid only RM 500,000 before Tax.

    Nowadays, Sime Darby’s motorcar sales man is not only a DATO but paid more than RM 500,000 a year. THE WHOLE COUNTRY’S WORK AND REWARD ETHICS ARE NOT ONLY LOP-SIDED BUT CORRUPT due to the shenanigans of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs 2004-2018

    How many Malaysians are aware that all of today’s malfeasance did not start at the drop of a hat orby pressing a computer button ?

    All these began in eruptions beginning with the BMF Affair and eventually erupted again in Sime Darby 1992-2010 and finally the IMMORALTIY INFECTED THE WHOLE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES COMPOUNDED BY THE FREE-SPENDING GLCs 2004-2018 !

    HERE ARE THE TRUE FACTS OF WHICH I WAS INVOLVED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THESE CROOKED DEALS.

    1984. Out of my own volition, I met the infamous George Tan of the BMF fame and got him to pay back HK$ 150 Million. HSBC wanted HK$ 300 Million. The deal collapsed and turned into a scandal.

    1992. I was kicked out by the Sime Darby Management which jobs were created by me for them in 1975. Before this, these fellows were all lowly paid flunkeys in British set-ups.

    Not only that, the Malaysians ran out of money at RM 23 Million to take-over Sime Darby in 1974. Without letting anyone know, I met Mrs Lee Kuan Yew who claimed she knew nothing about politics and not involved with her husband’s work. I knew she was a founder of PAP ! We talked for 1 hour.

    By April 1975, OCBC and UOB bought enough shares to give the Malaysians control of Sime Darby. This we must never forget BECAUSE BEFORE THIS THE MALAYS DID NOT HAVE A BIG BUSINESS AND OWNED ONLY 2% OF THE ECONOMY ! My 1972 Concept to capture Sime Darby for Malaysian interests was to create a level playing field for the Malays quickly so that the Chinese and all can do business without any political play. FOR THIS A MCA LEADER CALLED ME A MALAY BUM SUCKER SO THAT WITH THIS EXCUSE HE COULD CHEAT HIS OWN AND GO TO JAIL.

    I was a non-executive of Sime Darby from 1974-1992 appointed by the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak, the Prime Minister. Until I was kicked out by the Malaysian Management, there was NO SCANDAL for 18 years. And during this period, I made one significant proposal to corner all the palm oil bunkering facilities in China in 1982 ! The Management set-up a small one at Port Said Egypt.

    10 years later, all the Chinese bunkering facilities were owned by KLK, IOI and the Kuok Group.

    During my time, Benta was sold to a MCA leader by the Chairman of Sime Darby an ex-MCA leader without my knowledge. I found this out in the Singapore Business Times which the buyer alleged I helped him with the cheap sale. I consulted Mrs Lee Kuan Yew who told me I was a non-starter because not only was I late but it was not worthwhile.

    Again this MCA Leader walloped Sime Darby’s valuable Nova Scotia estate for only RM 4 Million which was next to the Rawang Highway in 1990. This property was shuffled via a listed company to Selangor Perangsang and a Chinese Tan Sri’s Talam at RM 88 Million.

    I ASKED THE SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT WHY THEY SOLD SO CHEAP AND THE BOARD NOT INFORMED ?

    The reply by the Sime Darby Management was that the RM 4 Million was less than 2% of the Company’s total assets. BUT THIS SIME DARBY FELLOW FORGOT THAT THE PROPERTY WAS ACTUALLY WORTH A MINIMUM OF RM 88 MILLION ! And he could have sold all the assets thus without informing the Board. Stupid man.

    As I was not told about the Nova Scotia sale, and only heard about it in the street. This made me blushed.

    In 1992, THE SAME SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT WANTED TO BUY A PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE IN SABAH WHICH NO ONE WANTED FOR 20 YEARS AT RM 32 MILLION. This Estate was hawked around for 20 years at RM 20 Million. The purchase was from a well-known crooked Chinese.

    I knew that this fellow wanted the money to buy the Sabah Shipyard at RM 22 Million which Renong offered at RM 11 Million ! And the balance of RM 10 Million was surplus to the Company’s needs but himself ! THE SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT WANTED ME TO SIGN THIS DEAL IN A HURRY. I refused to sign and resigned.

    AFTER MY RESIGNATION, THE SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT BOUGHT A BANKRUPT BRITISH REFRIGERATOR COMPANY LAC, SANDESTIN GOLF AND HOLIDAY RESORT AT RM 72 MILLION AND CLAIMED NOT TO HAVE LOST AFTER THE RINGGIT DEVALUATION IN 1997 BY SELLING IT AGAIN AT RM 72 MILLION (Devalued)!

    AND THE WORST CAPER OF ALL, SIME DARBY LOST RM 350 MILLION BY SUPPORTING A CROOKED CHINAMAN IN SHARE SPECULATION AND BLAMED IT ALL ON AN INNOCENT EMPLOYEE in 1996.

    The Sime Darby Management was ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CROOKED ACT BECAUSE THEY HAD OVERSIGHT OF THE OPERATIONS OF THE SIME BANK AND ONE OF THEM WAS WITH BNM FOR A VERY LONG TIME !

    With all these frauds, cheating, corruption and theft, Sime Darby was bankrupted twice at RM 1.20 Billion in 1996 and RM 2.10 Billion in 2010. The SAME SIME DARBY MANAGEMENT WAS IN PLACE UNTIL 2010. No one was charged. No one went to jail.

    BUT THE SIME DARBY CROOKED SAGA CAN ONLY BE OVER-SHADOWED BY THE FOREIGN CLOSEST AIDE IN CORRUPTION.

    He began doing his thing with the sponsorship of his boss the distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail whose Samsonite was carried by him in a small tin factory in JB in 1982.

    By the mid-1980s, this foreign closest aide boasted to the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore Dr Goh Keng Swee and other PAPs in front of my cousin that HE HAD THE EARS OF THE GOOD AND GREAT OF KL. In other words, he was trawling for business. By the time this fellow retired back to Singapore after 2003, he owned a bank, a golf rssort, hotels, homes in Subang etc.

    Via the social media HE BOASTED THAT HE COLLECTS STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS AT US$ 5 Million a piece which he on lent to Singapore and Shanghai Philharmonic but not to KL.

    He was so arrogant behind his Patron’s back that by 1992, HE FORCEABLY ASKED ME TO QUIT MY NON-DIRECTORSHIPS AT CYCLE & CARRIAGE LTD SINGAPORE AND BINTANG CYCLE & CARRIAGE BERHAD SO THAT as a non-executive director HE COULD SELL CHEAP THE BEST PROPERTY ARDMORE PARK TO WHAMPOA HOLDINGS OF HONG KONG AND BINTANG’S BEST PJ LAND TO A CHINESE FINANCIAL SET-UP. Both of them were my friends.

    OF COURSE, I QUICKLY RESIGNED SO THAT HIS CROOKED ACTS ARE NOW RECORDED IN THE ANNUAL REPORTS OF 1993 & 1994. And the best of all, I DID NOT TELL THIS CROOKED CLOSEST AIDE THAT I KNEW HIS PATRON SINCE 1972 ! And that the Federal Government via EPF appointed me and Tan Sri Basir Ismail to restructure the Cycle & Carriage Group in 1984 !.

    Finally, ALL THE MALFEASANCE OF LTAT IS ALL EXPOSED AND PUBLICISED.

    The ex-head honcho who was ensconced in LTAT for decades treated all the ex-generals as though they knew nothing about money.

    I was appointed a non-executive Director of GUARDIAN ROYAL EXCHANGE in 1984 and became the Chairman of its Investment Committee which made over RM 20 Million every year and was the talk of the industry until the principal shareholder AXA wanted me to be Chairman of GRE. This fellow objected to my appointment. I resigned. NOW I KNOW WHY !

    BUT THE BIGGEST FAKE DEAL BY LTAT MUST BE THE PURCHASE OF A PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE IN SABAH AT RM 900 MILLION JUST BEFORE THE 14 GE ! No one wanted this estate for over 20 years because of its pondan history. And at the end of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government regime, RM 900 Million CASH was paid for it. FANTASTIC. Using poor Rakyat’s hard-earned money to buy at BIG PRICES THE ASSETS OF A CHINESE WITH NO VALUE. I thought this ennobled fellow swore to make the Malays rich and not the Chinese ? The same happened in Sime Darby. The same happened in FELDA and the Indonesian Chinese Eagle. The same in DBKL. It’s crazy, Tun !

    In support of my comments as mentioned above, here are the sordid headlines caused by people WITH NO MORALITY, thus :-

    1. ” LTAT RESULTS OVERSTATED ”

    2. ” LTAT PROFIT FOR 2017 SHOULD BE RM370M, NOT RM662M ”

    3. ” COPS ORDERED TO PROBE FELDA ”

    4. ” A-G, MACC CHIEF TO TESTIY ON CITY HALL LAND SALE.”

    5. ” RM 10M LONDON APARTMENT ”

    10.” DUO HELD OVER RM3.5M SUKMA FUNDS CASE ”

    The crooked aides have left no stone unturned in their quest to rob the Rakyat of every ringgit under their control

    NOT ONLY MUST THE CROOKS BE CHARGED IN COURT BUT ALSO THE LHDN SHOULD SEND THEM ALL AN INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT AND THE FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS TAKE BACK ALL THE TAN SRI-SHIPS AND DATO-SHIPS FROM THESE RECALCITRANTS.

    And all their stolen money hidden overseas must be RETRIEVED TO BENEFIT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT, NOT THE HOST COUNTRIES.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem if the New and Incorruptible Government adopts a stern Policy under the Rule of the Law to deal with this OUTBREAK OF IMMORALITY 2004-2018. Then what you importantly said yesterday ” PM. AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY, THIRD NATIONAL CAR VITAL TO COUNTRY ” will surely SUCCEED !

    It is difficult to find a day which is free from news about the Corrupt Thieves of Putrajaya.

    On this all-out theft of the Rakyat’s money held in Trust, each and every one of these hallowed Trusts were completely robbed of the money. In some cases, after the coffers were emptied the Thieves of Putrajaya used these empty Trusts like the FELDA to borrow billions not millions of ringgits more.

    No Trust holding the Rakyat’s money was exempted eg. FELDA, LTAT, TH, etc. Not only that, these Malay Trusts bought fake assets at over many times the value like the Eagle shares or the pondan oil palm estate in Sabah. Or the infamous 1MDB which lost RM 50 Billion more.

    Even my feather friends got up earlier this morning at 6.50 a.m. chirping and singing with anxiety. Birds have feelings but the THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA HAVE NO FEELINGS FOR THE RAKYAT ! How could it be ?

    THEN THE WHOLE THIEVING LOT MUST BE ON THE FINEST THAI UBAT OR OBAT.

    I came across this ubat or obat thing many years ago.

    I found that there were places in KL town where such magical potions were sold in very odd places like the Sungei Wang Complex or the public housing in Taman Tun Abdul Razak. The purveyors were either Chinese or Indian. Both threw in fortune telling as an additional perk.

    How many Malaysians know that there are different types of ubat or obat with different strengths ? The most powerful is the Thai ubat followed by the Nepalese. Indian ubat is so-so. Malay or Orang Asli ubat is weak in strength.

    Ubat or obat is mainly used to make a lover stick to the perpetrator of the ubat or obat. Under such circumstance, an over-dosage was a frequent occurrence due to the zeal of the anxious perpetrator to make the expensive ubat or obat work !

    This ubat or obat malady amongst love-torn Malaysians is a diagnosis which has never been written about in Western medical textbooks. May be some researcher on this strange all-out theft of the Rakyat’s money by the Thieves of Putrajaya will one day publish their findings.

    Synptoms of over-dosage by ubat or obat, we can see from the pictures of the recalcitrants every day as they move in and out of the Courts – apparently smiling without a care in the World even though they have been charged with the thefts of Billions and Billions of the Rakyat’s money. Obviously, these over-dosage of the powerful ubat or obat had its effects.

    STRANGELY, NO ONE HAS BROUGHT UP THIS INTERESTING SUBJECT OF OVERDOSAGE BY THE FINEST QUALITY AND MOST EXPENSIVE THAI UBAT OR OBAT.

    A subject which all practicing Malaysian doctors should know because such maladies do crop up in odd places like even at the highest level of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    It is alleged for many years that all types of ubat or obat were served openly in places of entertainment at night in KL and other places with Government officials in full attendance. I would not know personally because I do not frequent such haunts for a Life-time !

    As Tun had mentioned, it takes discipline to avoid doing malfeasance.

    And here are the ubat or obat headlines of today in support of the World’s Greatest Malfeasance by the Thieves of Putrajaya.

    Whether they were high on ubat or obat or not is the question ?

    Little do these greedy fellows know that if they want to do a decent job, it is only a matter of practice which was why the Kamasutra of 386 positions or the Ming Pillow Books were created for the edification of all except the Thieves of Putrajaya.

    1. ” GOVERNMENT RAMPS UP FELDA PROBE ”

    2. ” FELDA WILL PERSIST IN SELLING EAGLE HIGH STAKE BACK TO RAJAWALI ”
    This money of RM 2.04 Billions is gone forever !

    3. ” PUT OPTION PUT DOWN ”

    4. ” FELDA WHITE PAPER REVEALS SHADY DEALS ”

    5. ” PLANTING SEEDS TO A NEW FELDA “. Don’t joke. Where is the experienced and honest human resources to carry this out ? All were corrupted and gone.

    6. ” GOVT TO GIVE RM6.23B TO RESCUE FELDA ” So easy, ugh ?

    7. ” FELDA UNLIKELY TO SETTLE RM1.98B DEBTS. ” FELDA is dead !

    10. ” LTAT BOUGHT PONDAN OIL PALM ESTATE FROM CHINESE FOR RM900M – THE HIGHEST PRICE EVER JUST BEFORE 14TH GE ”

    FELDA a Malay Trust well-administered for over 50 years ran into the ground in just 3 years after the advice of some friendly bankers who also made some money like the Sime Darby biggest oll palm plantation in the World caper !

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    An idea came to my mind that the MINISTRY OF FINANCE MUST SET UP A SPECIALISED UNIT TO RETRIEVE ALL THE STOLEN MONEY BY THESE THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA BECAUSE THIS TASK WILL BE DIFFICULT AND TAKE MANY YEARS TO DO SO.

    This Special Unit should work closely with the MACC, LHDN, BNM and SC.

    The latter SC is suspect because I reported a huge share rigging of over RM 1 Billion for 15 years with complete documentation on the Bursa on 4th May 2016 and it was reported to me recently that there was NO SHARE-RIGGING. Between 4 May 2016 and 9 May 2018, a lot of things could have happened with SC and its well-known history in those pre-9 May 2018 days !

    A SPECIALIZED UNIT IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE TO RETRIEVE ALL THE MONIES IS A MUST OR THE THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA WILL LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO JAIL. EVERY RINGGIT MUST BE RECOVERED IN THE RAKYAT’S INTERESTS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. No OBAT OR UBAT for NORMAL people.

    Tun

    These are exciting days for our beloved Malaysia and her New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great. Therefore, we have headlines galore to face us in the media. Now and then, the Opposition created fake news to derail the good intentions of the incumbent Government or deride it.

    As for my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree, they were up and chirping and singing at 6.52 a.m. No problem.

    The headlines galore read like a restaurant’s menu, thus :-

    1. ” MUTUAL RESPECT ”

    2. ” RESOLVING THORNY ISSUES AMICABLY ”

    3. ” FORCED TO ENTER INTO ONE-SIDE DEAL ”

    4. ” FELDA LODGES REPORT AGAINST NAJIB ”

    5. ” FELDA SEEKING RM 6 BIL GOVERNMENT RESCUE SAYS SOURCE ”

    6. ” ANALYSTS TURN CAUTIOUS ON IHH ”

    7. ” IHH SEEN TO FACE TOUGH OPERATING CONDITIONS IN MEDIUM TERM,”

    8. ” NO-GO FOR SABAH, SARAWAK STATUS ”

    9. ” EQUAL PARTNER STATUS BID FAILS ”

    10. ” LTAT FINANCIAL REPORT READY BY JULY ”

    11. ” I DID NOT ISSUE SHELLFISH WARNING ”

    What a list of the sublime to the ridiculous, Tun ? Of thieves who stole from the poor Rakyat settlers and heroes who up-kept their honour, integrity, sincerity and loyalty for a Life-time. In short, of mice and Men !

    1. Finally, the Causeway relationship of Malaysia and Singapore is slowly coming back to NORMAL since 1966 !

    Even today there was a comment by a Singaporean in the social media questioning the capability of us Malaysians to manage the tiny air-space above Pasir Gudang.

    To re-cap, the Malaysian Air-space was controlled from Singapore up to 1972, up to Perlis – a British relic. Thereafter, this tiny Pasir Gudang Airspace was left to Singapore to control because at that time there was no Senai Airport.

    It is proper and legal for Malaysia to regain its own air-space because every time a Malaysian plane or helicopter or drone uses it, Malaysia has to ring up Singapore by going through the official channels.

    3, 4 & 5. Actually, RM 14 Billions were stolen from FELDA.

    At the point of listing, FELDA had RM 6 Billion cash. At the end of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites, the liabilities accrued to FELDA were RM 8 Billion as reported. Therefore, the present bail-out requirement of RM 6 Billion is only to cover immediate debts repayments.

    ANOTHER RM 8 BILLION WILL HAVE TO BE RAISED TO SATISFY RE-PLANTING PROGRAMMES ETC. There are frivolous suggestions from the ignoramuses about the plantation industry. These should be ignored.

    AND FELDA SHOULD RETURN TO ITS AGE-OLD PRACTICES WHICH STOOD IT IN GOODSTEAD FROM 1960 OT 2010 – 50 YEARS BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA AND THEIR BANKING ADVISERS ON HOW TO STEAL BILLIONS FROM THE POOR FELDA SETTLERS !

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan !

    6 & 7. IHH will be the next to blow up with a loss of billions of ringgits for its shareholders and financiers in FAR AWAY PLACES WHICH ARE DIFFICULT TO CATCH THE CROOKS eg. Turkey, India and China.

    For years I have commented that the IHH Model is flawed.

    NO ONE INVESTS GOOD MONEY INTO ANY COMPANY WITHOUT A CLEAN SLATE OR BALANCE SHEET BECAUSE IT IS A WELL-KNOWN FACT THAT IF A BALANCE SHEET IS OUT BY ONE-RINGGIT, THIS MIGHT HIDE A MONUMENTAL LIABILITY. The first basic fact for an accounting student.

    And then we have this Singaporean fellow telling the World, FAIRY TALES OF THE SINGAPOREAN WOODS AT BUKIT TIMAH !

    Besides, the billions of ringgits he spent is NOT HIS MONEY BUT FROM THE POOR RAKYAT OF MALAYSIA WHICH RUNS INTO BILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF CASH AND WORST, BORROWED MONEY OPERATING ACROSS TROUBLED FOREX BORDERS OF TURKEY, INDIA AND CHINA ! This Potemkin-Ponzi show will blow up in quick time or surely as the Sun rises !

    8 & 9. With all due respect to the YB Minister of Law who has just completed his Life’s work to change the name and status of the ROSE, that the 31 million inhabitants of our beloved Malaysia are waiting for him to REVISE AND UP-DATE THE TRUSTESS ACT 1949 AND THE FAKE BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967 which was messed up by the BN Minister of Law by misleading 200,000 young Malays bankrupts and another 300,000 non-Malay bankrupts.

    These should all be given a second chance like in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia which countries the Sabahans and the Sarawakians worship and heavily invested there.

    The Companies Act 1965, the Trustees Act 1949 and the Bankruptcy Act 1967 are ESSENTIAL LAWS for general use of the burgeoning Middle Class in support of our beloved Malaysia’s progress upwards to the next tier of development.

    10. LTAT bought a oil palm estate in Sabah for nearly RM 900 Million CASH just before the 14th GE. Suspicious. This estate no one wanted for nearly 30 years and was reputed to be FULL OF PONDAN OIL PALM TREES – afact well-known and circulated in the plantation industry for at least 25 years.

    AND HERE WE SEE ANOTHER POOR RAKYAT TRUST THE LTAT DISHING OUR NEARLY A BILLION RINGGITS CASH TO A NON-MALAY SELLER LIKE PETER S of Indonesia. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE PRINCIPLES OF HELPING POOR MALAYS TO BE RICH ?

    Money by the trillions seemed to flow OUT OF THE MALAYS HANDS TO OVERSEAS 2004-2018. AS REPORTED, ONE TRILLION RINGGITS FLOWED OUT OF MALAYSIA BETWEEN 2002-2010. And another RM 500 Billion from 2011 to 2018 ! Only those in control of the country could do this during the period 2002-2018 !

    11. The culprits involved in twisting the facts to give a poor version of our beloved Malaysia on the shell-fish, should be sacked. This fake news went viral and reached the shores of Singapore which commentators gave negative reviews on a natural product of Malaysia by down-grading the shell-fish.

    CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. As long as we avoid the OBAT !

    Tun,

    As the day passes by, and nearer the 1st Anniversary of the ousting of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites, the omens before us are good, very good to the chagrin of the naysayers, detractors and troublemakers. With the rise and rise of the Brent oil price, our beloved Malaysia will take on a better and better financial picture for the World to see.

    Not forgetting my feather friends the chirping and singing bulbuls this morning, I was in a hurry and did not notice them as I had two jobs on hand – to ferry my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK and her grand-mother to the wet market. Both jobs I enjoyed to keep me alive, kicking and healthy !

    The omens are becoming better and better for the New and Incorruptible Government as the days go by.

    But the headlines reporting on the malfeasance of the previous Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites are both shocking and down right disgraceful to a proud Nation like our beloved Malaysia. For 14 years, 2004-2018, this corrupt BN Leadership did things which all of us felt ashamed and cringed in our chairs. Headlines thus :-

    1. ” HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OVER-PAYMENT OF RM 2.4 BILLION TO HIS FRIEND PETER BY FELDA ”

    2. ” HRDF OFFICERS HAD A GALA TIME ”

    3. ” OBSCENE HRDF BONUSES ”

    4. ” MAT SABU : TH WOULD HAVE GONE BANKRUPT ” – poor Rakyats’ Trust !

    1. The value of the asset which was bought by FELDA from his friend Peter was only RM 350 Million. Through the abuse of POWER, his friend Peter was paid RM 2.4 Billion.

    FELDA before this horrible scandal was a World famous and successful icon which was set-up by the accused’s father, Malaysia’s greatest Statesman Tun Abdul Razak who could command the respect and loyalty of all Malaysians. His faithful and loyal aides like Tan Sri Taib Andak made FELDA a successful Brand name not in the art of money-making but a fountain of wealth and succour for the landless and hapless poor Malays.

    Since then, I have met many university graduates from this group of Malaysians. And under the hands of his son, the whole iconic edifice was destroyed by greed and something else !

    Having been an observer of the rise of FELDA in the 1960s and to watch its contrived fall, IT WAS DIFFICULT TO STOMACH.

    I was a close friend of Tan Sri Taib Andak and YBM Raja Tan Sri Alias as well. The FELDA settlers were literally cheated of their hard-earned wealth by those with the POWER.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan !

    2 & 3. If the head of the Government is corrupt, the body is corrupted ABSOLUTELY !

    The officers HRDF a Trust LAVISHED THEMSELVES WITH SO MUCH MONEY WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY THAT THEY HAVE COMMITTED THEFT, CRIMINAL BREACH OF TRUST, FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY ! They zoomed their emoluments in 3 years by 3,240 per cent. WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA !

    Our beloved Malaysia is a small place. The citizens are gossipy and cannot keep any secrets. Hence, when a rumour enters the market place, it is more likely to be true. As it is said. ‘ There is no smoke. There is no fire.’

    HENCE THE SHENANIGANS OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES ARE KNOWN AND VIEWED BY THE RAKYAT LIKE FISH IN AN AQUARIUM ! How ? Simple. All the reports come form those who served these high-flying types in the Government.

    AND FOR YEARS NOW WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE ABUSES OF THE BN GOVERNMENT BY ITS OWN KEEPERS ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    4. TECHNICALLY TH MIGHT NOT BE BANKRUPTED YET. But in practice, TH is bankrupted by the BN politicians who treated it like THEIR OWN SAVINGS BANK. The buying at high prices and the selling at low prices.

    The above-mentioned THEFTS OF PUBLIC MONEY IS ONLY A VERY SHORT LIST OF 3 ICONIC INSTITUTIONS.

    The fact is NEARLY 100 PER CENT OF GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED INSTITUTIONS HAVE BEEN ROBBED OF THE MONEY BY THOSE BN APPOINTEES WHO HAD THE POWER ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

  139. mubarakchan Apr 8,2019 2:25 PM

    Tun,

    This afternoon I heard my feather friends were back in the young banyan tree. They were chirping and singing as usual My heart returned to its normal beat in response.

    And a good headline from the independent Financial Times today, thus :-

    ” SOUTH EAST ASIAN WINNERS IN FOREIGN INVESTMENT – VIETNAM AND MALAYSIA ARE ATTRACTIVE ON THEIR OWN MERITS EVEN WITHOUT A US-CHINA TRADE WAR .”

    This is an unbiased article on Malaysia good name for investment by all counts.

    With the determined Will of the New and Incorruptible Government to put back our beloved Malaysia’s economy and bureaucracy on a normal and even keel, who does not want to invest in Malaysia ?

    Without being repetitive, I repeat once again that our beloved Malaysia overnight has become one of four most important small countries of the World after 9 May 2018. This reflects badly on the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites, 2004-2018. They did nothing as Leaders of an important country for 14 years..

    Thanks to the brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the only person in the whole World who could oust the Corrupt lot by DEMOCRATIC MEANS.

    We Malaysians living in our beloved Malaysia has another chance of achieving our aims to be ONE OF FOUR IMPORTANT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN AND UNIQUE MALAYSIA.

    How many Malaysians are aware that our beloved Malaysia lies right in the nexus of the most strategic location in the World and stands astride a choke-point of 1,200 miles from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea ?

    With our good citizens from 3 civilizations and more, and bountiful natural resources with an adequate land mass, Malaysia is really and truly THE MOST STRATEGIC COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

    This fact should govern our planners and the citizens to think and ponder properly as regards many matters like Foreign Policy, Investment Policy, Tourism Policy etc.

    It must always be remembered that our natural and green environment should not be torn asunder like in Pulau Pinang, Pahang, Kelantan, Melaka and Johor, Sabah and Sarawak.

    Clusters of foreign SME from India, China Korea and Japan should be encouraged especially in the FTZs, Sabah and Sarawak.

    With the New and Incorruptible Government soon back to NORMAL, Malaysia should be up and running by the second half of 2019 concomitant with the recovery of the petroleum price and the palm oil price as well.

    The strengthening of the financial resources of the Government will bring on the stimulus of the construction industry once again with the support of the banks which by now should be aware of their own positions. In three months, a better picture will be formed. And with the Government and Private Sector machineries working in tandem and synchronisation, our beloved Malaysia’s wherewithal is ready to zoom only upwards propelled by the recovery of huge amounts of the stolen money hidden by the Thieves of Putrajaya !

    They will soon learn that in these days of anti-terrorism, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO HIDE STOLEN MONEY ANYWHERE EVEN IN SWITZERLAND !

    Tun, the blessings will come for the good people in the Government as days go by.

    This is the Moment. This is the Truth. This is thePpay-back for people of honour, integrity, loyalty and sincerity. The crooks will troop off to jail.

    With the price of a barrel of oil above US$ 70, Malaysia’s future is certainly very bright UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT OF THE OLD AND THE YOUNG, THE NEW AND THE GREAT WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. No shame either to recognise we Malaysians live in a fabled land of the Golden Chersonese !

    Tun

    My feather friends were absent from their nest in the young banyan tree this morning. Perhaps, they have flown away because of the heavy down-pour yesterday afternoon. I hope they will return soon. I am waiting for them with their chirping and singing. Such is Life with its ups and downs.

    And the significant headline this morning, thus :-

    ” DOING IT DR MAHATHIR’S WAY FOR EDUCATION “. The headline is twisted and gives a dictatorial feel to the proceedings which is untrue as we know.

    KUDOS TO YOU FOR YOUR BRILLIANCE AND COURAGE IN RIGHTING A WRONG WHICH CAUSED AT LEAST TWO GENERATIONS IF NOT THREE OF MALAYSIANS TO BE LACKING IN THE USE OF ENGLISH. You have de-politicised the English language which is the proper thing to do.

    This faux pas began around 1969, when the Minister of Education created his own Policy without the consent of the Cabinet. After this he disappeared into the Sarawak woods and could not be found.

    From this point onwards, English and our Malaysian Education System went on a downward spiral WITH THE POLITIZISATION OF THE MALAYSIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM BEGINNING WITH THE SUPPRESSION OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

    As a result, two generations of Malaysians if not three, lacked the use of the English language. This created unhappiness, frustration and an inferiority complex in Malaysians who ARE AS GOOD AND NORMAL AS ANYONE ELSE ON THIS PLANET.

    During these years, I could see that these young Malaysian who spoke no English, were capable, willing and hard-working. BUT THE GOVERNMENT POLICY OF THE DAY LET THEM DOWN. I kept quiet as the English language was POLITICISED.

    A true example is India, the largest democracy in the World. India never tinkle or suppress the English language, If at all, India enhanced and encouraged its use. There is an Education Silicon Valley in Dehra Dun and Mussoorie, India where there are many established and famous schools, colleges and institutions which all use the English language since India’s independence in 1947. This is one of the many centres where India’s elites are trained to serve the Nation.

    Now the 350 Million English speaking Middle Class Indians form the bulwark of India’s progress, development and modernization. Soon, India will overtake Britain as the 5th economic Power in the World. India has over 350 dialects.

    We now understand India was wise to keep and enhance the English language which pays her immense benefits. These are confirmed by the many World class Indians we see in the West today.

    INDIA DID NOT SHOOT HERSELF IN THE FOOT AS REGARDS THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

    Another example is that when I was a boy, I studied English and Classical Cantonese. Later, I studied Hindi and Urdu. After this, I was onto English, Latin and Classical Cantonese. After graduation, I studied Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin. All these languages did not turn me into something else, I AM STILL A CHINAMAN !

    KUDOS TO YOU AGAIN TUN FOR THIS BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS ACT OF RIGHTING A WRONG. YOUR DECISION WILL BENEFIT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER !

    The Rakyat in time will thank you for this gesture, A TRILLION TIMES BY FREEING THEM FROM THE POLITICAL BONDAGE OF NOT KNOWING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. IT IS THE MAJORITY OF THE RAKYAT YOU ALWAYS CARED FOR – THIS IS YOUR WAY, TUN ! It is the RIGHT WAY ! Keep smiling !

  141. mubarakchan Apr 7,2019 11:43 PM

    Tun

    Whilst I was commenting on Turkey, it suddenly dawned on me that our Nation’s Airports Berhad was also deeply involved in a Turkish Airport. Recent news reported that there was a shift of operations from the OLD to the NEW ISTANBUL AIRPORT. There was a report sometime ago that Malaysia wanted to sell off its interests in an Istanbul Airport. Now the question arises which AIRPORT DID MALAYSIA REALLY OWN OR SELL ?

    Finally, with so much Malaysian interest in Istanbul and Turkey, our fellow citizens have finally discovered the DELIGHTS OF TURKISH DELIGHT IN THE 21ST CENTURY. Little are they aware that they did not miss anything at all. Or am I wrong ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling !

  142. mubarakchan Apr 7,2019 11:29 PM

    Tun,

    Over the week-end, some eye-catching headlines hit the social media and the Opposition press thus :-

    1. ” LOKE : ECRL TO UNDERGO CHANGE OF ALIGNMENT TO NEGRI ”

    2. ” A TRICKY ‘OPERATION’ FOR IHH ”

    3. ” IHH FACES ROCKY PATH IN INDIA ”

    4. ” FINALLY MALVINDER AND SHIVINDER AT ODDS WITH EACH OTHER ”

    1. My kudos to the Minister of Transport, my favourite Minister in terms of dynamism, efficiency and delivery. He only made one minor slip so far by not permitting his wife to go shopping or sight-seeing in Beijing due to austeriy. This opened him to all sorts of snide remarks from down South.

    However, I applaud that the ECRL will now serve Negri Sembilan instead.

    A State which needs more development. Besides, the original plan to pass through Gombak and the Main Range did not make sense and increased the cost.

    I HOPE THE YB MINISTER OF TRANSPORT INVEIGLE OUT OF HIS FRIENDS THE CHINESE, A FREE ‘HARI RAYA’ ANG POW RAIL CONNECTION FROM SEREMBAN TO PORT DICKSON. This will jazz up the promises made by DSAI in winning that constituency !

    The route is only 25 miles long.

    The Chinese can throw this in FREE FOR FRIENDSHIP SAKE since the LAY-OUT IS THERE AND THE RAILS ARE AVAILABLE WITH KTM ! AND THE CHINESE WOULD HAVE MEN AND MATERIALS FOR THE JOB SINCE THEY WOULD BE FINISHING THE ECRL JOB AT THE NEGRI END.

    YB would be killing two birds with one stone for the Rakyat to bring more business to support DSAI in Port Dickson. Acheh ! Kudos to the Government !

    2, 3 & 4. IHH, IHH, IHH. This IHH will soon bother us like the 1MDB a fellow GLC.

    For years, I have commented that the IHH is a FLAWED MODEL for the reason that whilst the Nation needs many hospitals in an emerging country, the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and GLCs were investing billions of ringgits of ‘borrowed’ money in countries which actually do not need any money from Malaysia for their healthcare service because these have plenty of investors of their own.

    HENCE, IHH PAID A HIGH PRICE FOR RISKY HEALTHCARE INVESTMENTS IN TURKEY AND INDIA. The birds will come home to roost sooner rather than later.

    Both countries have unstable forex regimes apart from proper legal governance.

    With IHH, we are NOT TALKING ABOUT PEANUTS BUT BILLIONS OF RINGGITS, THE RAKYAT’S RINGGITS spent to SERVICE THE HEALTH OF FOREIGNERS WHO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH US WHILST OUR RAKYAT SUFFER FOR LACK OF HOSPITAL AND HEALTHCARE AMENITIES.

    THE IHH MODEL IS FLAWED. IT IS A TIME-BOMB WAITING TO EXPLODE – Courtesy of one ex-Opposition Leader.

    Billions and billions of the Rakyat’s ringgits will be lost again.

    For the cognoscenti, THE SINGH BROTHERS PUT UP A SHOW AGAIN as reported in The Star.

    THE BN KHAZANAH AND THE IHH MANAGEMENT KNOW THEM LIKE THE BACK OF THEIR HANDS ARISING FROM A BAKSHEESH PAYMENT OF S$ 150 Million to the Singh Brothers out of a Singaporean caper not too long ago.

    THIS PRESENT IHH CAPER IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN AN INDIAN ROPE TRICK. It is something like a SINGAPOREAN CHINESE POTEMKIN FAKE WITH ELEMENTS OF A SINGAPOREAN CHINESE PONZI SCHEME AS THE AUDITORES NOW QUALIFY AND CONFIRM as alleged in reports all over.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. OTHER PEOPLE’S CASH IS KING, TUN ?

  143. mubarakchan Apr 7,2019 11:43 AM

    Tun

    Even on a Sunday, my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree did not rest or stop their chirping and singing as I could hear them from my house. The fauna carry on with their lives regardless unlike us quarrelsome Humankind.

    This quiet Sunday morning brought my mind to some quiet thoughts to ponder upon. Ethereal issues which should not have seen the light of the day until at some appropriate moment in the future, near or far.

    I am referring to some of the Policy U-turns of the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great.

    But before I say anything more, I like to let all and sundry know that since 1954, I am a conventional Constitutionalist who will always support the incumbent Government. I am not a racist or a religious zealot because my profession makes me so. With these remarks, I seek the permission of the Tun and all to make my remarks as follows :-

    The New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side was elected because of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites which ruled the Rakyat for 18 years – 2004-2018.

    The corrupt BN Government did not produce Policies which provide jobs, food on the table and all the goodies expected of them to the proletariat at the bottom.

    Therefore the Rakyat expect the New and Incorruptible Government would do the needful and provide the essentials of jobs, food on the table, low cost of living etc as soon as possible.

    The Rakyat do not expect ‘magic shows’ to show how clever the YB Ministers are or to go for airy-fairy projects of no consequence like toy planes, nursery in the Dewan Rakyat or PH.D standards for young students or change the Education Policy overnight to make the majority of the students to jump 6′ when they could only jump 4′. This is not EDUCATION per se but MASOCHISTIC MENTAL TORTURE IMPOSED BY THE MINISTER. Nowadays, the World’s educationists promote education for ALL, not for the top 1%. AND NO STUDENT IS PERMITTED TO FAIL AN EXAMINATION UNLIKE THE OLD DAYS OF 70 YEARS AGO.

    And as I see it with all due respect, Tun, here was what happened at the top of the pile for the past 11 months :-

    1. The job of cleaning out the mess out of the Augean Stables was correct. But as it could be discerned only one or two of the YB Ministers were capable of doing so eg. Ministers of Defence, Finance, Transport, Culture & Sports, Labour, Information etc. Some of the announcements made by the neophytes made me blushed and cringed as though us the Rakyat are stupid.

    2. The focus on the stabilisation and rectification of the whole Financial System was correct. But the SECURITY FOR THE RAKYAT NEEDS UP-GRADING !

    3. The declared Abolishment of all Monopolies seemed to be lost somewhere on the Way to Putrajaya.

    Monopolies like MyEg. Pharmniaga, Bernas etc were only mentioned briefly by the YB Minister a few days ago.

    BUT THE WORST MONOPOLY IS THE MONOPOLISTIC CORRUPT ARCHAIC AND USELESS DISCOUNT HOUSE SYSTEM which increases the cost of banking for the Rakyat. No country in the World used it for over 50 years. It is alleged that the BNM Managers in charge of interest rates were bought up by a major Discount House since the mid-1970s – the longest Corruption in Malaysia if not the World. It is owned by a very few. Abolish this Monopolistic Corrupt Archaic and Useless Discount House System !

    4. The Rakyat expect jobs, food on the table, low cost of living, and other goodies which they were accustomed to before 2004. They should be able to see improvements by now.

    But what the Rakyat saw WERE THE INCONGRUOUS AND CONTROVERSIAL POLICIES LIKE THE ROME STATUTE, TPPA/CPTPP-the Malaysia/Malays Killer (Now promoted by the Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Trade. The Leader of his Party opposed it not too long ago) ABOISH THE DEATH PENALTY IN TOTAL, LGBT, CONSTITUTIONAL REFORMS ETC ISSUES WHICH ARE FOREIGN INSPIRED AND PUSHED BY ONE MAN OR ONE WOMAN NGOs through digits in the Cabinet. ALL THESE FOREIGN INSPIRED POLICIES SHOULD BE AVOIDED FOR THE TIME BEING BY THE NASCENT CABINET UNTIL A LATER DATE AS THESE ARE NOT BREAD AND BUTTER ISSUES BUT CONTROVERSIAL. The Rakyat’s needs are more important than pushing FOREIGN AGENDAS.

    5. Therefore, with all due respect Tun, the Government’s Focus should be on RIGHTING WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES eg.

    i) Cleaning and stabilizing the financial and bureaucratic mess left by the BN Government.

    ii) UP-DATING THE LAWS OF MALAYSIA WHICH ARE NEGLECTED UNLIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA BECAUSE A NATION DEPENDS ON THE UP-DATED LAWS TO LIVE, SURVIVE AND PROGRESS.

    Every legal case is different unlike the practice of Medicine.

    I CAN DISCERN THAT THERE IS NOT A QUALIFIED LAWYER IN THE CABINET.

    For example, a) the Trustees Act 1949 was never revised to bring it up to date for 70 years ! In Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia the Trustee Act is of paramount importance and brought right up to-date. It is an important Act under any circumstances.

    b) The Bankruptcy Act 1967 was NEVER revised by the incompetent and inefficient BN Minister of Law. In fact, this person created TWO BANKRUPTCY ACTS 1967 origin and 2017. The former has all the incarcerated 500,000 bankrupts. The latter has NO BANKRUPTS IN OCTOBER 2017. This FAUX PAS HAS TO BE RECTIFIFED SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.

    Quote today’s The Star, ” MIDDLE CLASS MALADY- The economic (and political) future of the country looks SCARY and its young bankrupts (300,000) and imminent retirees are not attended to soon, WE COULD BE IN FOR TRULY TOGHT TIMES.”

    I dare say this pundit’s comment is an UNDERSTATEMENT because the incumbent Government WILL HAVE 500,000 URBAN VOTES IF NOT MORE VOTES AGAINST IT BY 2023 if the Bankruptcy Act of 1967 and 2017 are not BROUGHT UP TO DATE LIKE THAT OF SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. It is alleged that the BN Minister was influenced by financial interests which dare not do this in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor, 25 June 2018.

    iii) The fault in the recovery of the general economy arose not only from the HUGE SUMS OF MONEY SUCKED OUT OF THE SYSTEM BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT BUT ALSO ARE STUCK IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.

    It is understandable why the Government is cautious in stimulating this industry through the banks which are probably up to their eye-balls in financing construction due to CORRUPTION BY THE BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018. The sooner the Construction Industry is revived the better because without this cornerstone of Malaysia’s economy THE BURSA CANNOT BE ROBUST AND MOVE UPWARDS !

    Therefore, Tun, NORMAL ISSUES NEED TO BE DEALT WITH BY THE CABINET FIRST like the financial and bureaucratic mess, up-dating and rectify the neglected and un-revised essential Laws of the land and JOBS FOOD ON THE TABLE AND GOODIES FOR THE RAKYAT.

    Do not fall into the trap of SERVING FOREIGN INTERESTS PUSHED BY ONE-MAN OR WOMAN NGOs through digits in the Cabinet which WILL CAUSE CONTROVERSIES OF NO VALUE TO ANYONE.

    The Foreign interests are “ALL OUT ABOLISHMENT OF THE DEATH PENALTY”, “TPPA/CPTPP- the Malaysia /Malays Killer now promoted by the Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Trade”,” Rome Statute”, “LGBT”, “Reform the Constitution”, etc. These are of NO PRIORITY and should be placed in the BACK-BURNER.

    OUR RAKYAT’S INTEREST COME FIRST !

    IF JOBS, FOOD ON THE TABLE, A LOW COST OF LIVING AND GOODIES ARE SEEN TO BENEFIT THE RAKYAT, MOST CONTROVERSIES SHOULD DISAPPEAR OVERNIGHT INCLUDING NAMES CALLING TOO, TUN !

    Foreign political agendas and philosophies NEVER RANK HIGH IN THE MINDS, HEARTS AND STOMACHS OF THE RAKYAT – its the jobs, the food on the table and the goodies which count.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem AS LONG AS THE CABINET IS NOT MISLED BY NEOPHYTES PUSHING FOREIGN AGENDAS. It’s the jobs, food on the table and the goodies which count and you have always been concerned with for a Life-time, Tun !

    Finally we are in the month of April and soon it will the 1st Anniversary of the Fall of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites – 12 months of fresh air and sunshine in a what used to be a happy and care-free land inhabited by the Rakyat who had always put their trust in their elected BN Leadership since Merdeka in 1957.

    Their believe in a good life came to an end from 2004-2018 when CASH IS KING REARED ITS UGLY HEAD. The problem was that the CASH did not go to the Rakyat but into the pockets of the BN Leadership and their corrupt elites. Now the Rakyat suffer for the trust misplaced in them.

    In passing my friends the chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree are still with me waking up at 6.52 a.m. this morning. And the headlines as created by me, thus.

    1. My grand-daughter had the following grades from her 1st Examination in March of this year at her favourite SMK.

    1. Geography – 97 marks
    2. English – 92
    3. Mathematics – 86
    4 Science – 82
    5. RBT – 77
    6. Bahasa – 48 In a class of 32, the highest marks, 3 Malays and 1 Chinese scored 51 marks, no one gained 50 or 49. The lowest score was 8 marks !

    According to my grand-daughter, the results were due to the NEW FORMAT produced by the Ministry of Education. Such lowly results did not occur for her Bahasa Melayu studies in the SMK from Primary to Tingkat 2 in 2018. This is the first time.

    I believe that the Minister should realise that education is for the Majority not for the top 1% or the bottom 1%. It is pointless to force the students to jump 6′ when the majority can only jump 4′.

    It is common sense and most important of all, EXAMINATIONS LIKE THIS BAHASA MELAYU WILL CAUSE MENTAL BREAKDOWNS AND LOSS OF CONFIDENCE AMONGST THE MAJORITY OF THE STUDENTS.

    Like this, eventually NO ONE WILL SUCCEED. It is not fair to experiment or foist young students SUDDENLY WITH NEW FORMATS. This sort of practice will ruin all the foundations which the MAJORITY OF THE STUDENTS ALREADY HAVE. Common sense dictates.

    Hence, my grand-daughter’s examination results are self-explanatory.

    Also, the 6 classes of her year total 180 of which according to the results ONLY 24 PASSED BAHASA MELAYU UNDER THE NEW FORMAT !

    Were the pupils asked questions which the answers were not taught to them ? SOMETHING IS WRONG SOMEWHERE TUN ! It does not pay to fool around young students.

    2. ‘ THE MINISTER SAID THERE WILL BE NO REVISION OF THE BANKRUPTCY ACT. ”

    The YB was answering a Parliamentary question posed in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday. He glibly read out Sections 33a, 33b and 33c of the Bankruptcy Act WHICH WERE NEVER REVISED AND JUST COPIES OF THE OLD SECTIONS FROM THE OLD BANKRUPTCY ACT ! He concluded that these old Sections of 33a, 33b, and 33c are sufficient for the Act.

    It is very clear that the YB treated the FAKE BN REVISED BANKRUPTCY ACT OCTOBER 2017 WITHOUT ANY SERIOUSNESS AND BRUSHED IT ASIDE WITHOUT ANY IN DEPTH STUDY OF THE EXISTING ACT AND ITS CONSEQUENCES. Maybe other legal issues of NO IMPORTANCE ARE MORE IMPORTANT TO HIM FROM SABAH.

    The facts are that there have been many complaints including “The Star”- Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018 that the so-called Revised Act is not a true or real revised Act and the existing 500,000 bankrupts with over 200,000 young Malay bankrupts and other young bankrupts ARE STILL INCARCERATED BY THE UNREVISED BANKRUPT ACT because by attaching the new Act of 2017 to the old Act of 1967, TWO BANKRUPTCY ACTS ARE CREATED.

    The Old Act with the 500,000 bankrupts and the New Act which began in October 2017 WITH NO BANKRUPTS.

    In practice, IT IS ALLEGED THAT THE INSOLVENCY DEPT. ONLY HOLDS ONE MEETING A YEAR TO DISCHARGE BANKRUPTSFROM A LIST OF 500,000 bankrupts ! Believe it or not, Tun ?

    Also,it is alleged that financial interests influenced the BN incompetent and inefficient Minister of Law. But they dare not do so in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

    IT IS SURPRISING THAT THE MINISTER OF LAW IS LIKE THE BN MINISTER OF LAW. If nothing is done to RECTIFY THE BANKURPTCY ACT 2017, THERE WILL BE MORE THAN 500,000 URBAN VOTES TO VOTE AGAINST THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT IN 2023 !

    Tun, it seems to me that certain Ministers are letting down the New and Incorruptible Government at the LEADING EDGE OF PUBLIC POLICIES which is where the Rakyat feel the brunt of the Government Minister’s decisions. This is where Governments fall.

    I sincerely hope that ALL THE MINISTERS PUT THEIR PRIORITIES RIGHT AND NOT FANCY THEIR OWN FANTASIES IN DEALING WITH THE RAKYAT.

    The above-mentioned instances are more than self-explanatory.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. At the rate, the Ministers are performing at the LEADING EDGE OF PUBLIC POLICIES, they are only WEAKENING THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT ALL ROUND as the above-mentioned incidents confirmed.

    NO GOODIES FOR THE RAKYAT ! Pour le vouz YB Ministers ? What had happened was what brought down the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 ! Remember ?

    With the paucity of interesting headlines during these recent days, even my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree are tired with boredom. They began to chirp and sing at 6.52 a.m. this morning but ran out of steam about 15 minutes later. There seemed to be no stimulus to urge them on. By then, the Sun rose to set another day for birds and Humankind.

    And the uninteresting headlines this morning thus :-

    1. ” Nurul Izzah calls for standardised prison hygiene. ”

    2. ” IHH LOSES ALMOST US$ 800M IN MART VALUE AS HEADACHES MOUNT ”

    3. ” MONOPOLY WATCH ”

    4. ” ATHLETES VERSUS OCM ”

    5. ” PM LAMENTS WHY SO MUCH MONEY SPENT ON WEAPONS RESEARCH ”

    1. The good YB disappeared after her resignation from PAC and expressed her frustration by calling names and stabbing backs down in Singapore of all places. She is now back in PAC according to her principles.

    But strangely, her contribution in the National Interest was her comment that the Nation’s jails toilets should be standardised and hygienic. How many of us ever visit a prison’s toilet least of all the prison. HERE IS WHAT THE YB SHOULD HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED ! Not the toilets/tandss.

    1. ALL DRUG ADDICTS SHOULD BE SEPARATED FROM THE CONVICTED CONVICTS.
    2. THE YOUNG DRUG ADDICTS SHOULD BE PLACED IN THE UNUSED N.S. CAMPS FOR REHABILITATION.
    3. THE OLDER DRUG ADDICTS ARE SEPARATED FROM THE YOUNG ADDICTS.
    4. THE PRISONS SHOULD BE PRIVATISED, THOSE FOR DRUG ADDICTS TO BE SEPARATED FROM THE REAL CONVICTS.
    5. NEW AND BETTER PRISONS TO BE BUILT FURTHER AWAY FROM TOWNS PREFERABLY IN A PLANTATION OR AREAS WHICH ARE REMOTE.
    6. THE VACATED PRISONS TO BE TURNED INTO COMMERCIAL OR RESIDENTIAL AREAS.

    Strange, the YB saw only the tandas and could not see the wood from the trees.

    2. The IHH Scandal is fast looming. There is no running away from it by those who were responsible and involved. The Devil will take the hindmost. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 6 strokes of the rotan

    3. ‘Monopoly Watch’ glared at me in all its big lettering in The Star’s Business page this morning.

    Monopolies like Pharmaniaga, Bernas, Puspakom, MyEG Services Berhad were mentioned by the YB Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs.

    But the biggest MONOPOLISTIC CULPRTI MUST BE THE DISCOUNT HOUSE SYSTEM WHICH IS EMBEDDED IN THE BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA SYSTEM SINCE THE 1970s !

    Abolish the Monopolistic Corrupt Archaic and Useless Discount House System which adds on to the cost of banking for the Rakyat. No country used it for over 50 years. It is alleged that the Bank Negara Managers in charge of interest rates were bought up by a major Discount House since the mid-1970s – the longest Corruption in Malaysia if not the World. Abolish the Monopolistic Corrupt Archaic and Useless Discount House System owned by a very few.

    4. ” ATHLETES VERSUS OCM “. It is time for YB SADDIQ to clean out the OCM Augean Stables which have become an obstacle to the good development of sportsmen and women.

    For decades, the OCM was ineffective and incompetent since the time of our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak who chaired the OCM himself. YB SADDIQ should do the same.

    Because the OCM sat on its backsides for decades and did not make any effort to get SQUASH recognised by the Olympics (even MOGULs were recognised), our beloved Malaysia lost at least 4 Gold Medals and many Silver and Bronze as well.

    Our Dato Nicole was let down by the OCM which is the only National Body TO FURTHER THE SPORTING INTERESTS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    OCM was so incompetent and inefficient that at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the OCM Chairman of Malaysia fumbled and could not open the key to the Games to the amusement of all.

    IT IS TIME TO CLEAN OUT THE OCM AND REPLACE IT WITH YB SADDIQ AND SPORTSMEN AND WOMEN WHO KNOW THE JOB AND NOT SOME WHO ONLY ENJOY TRAVELLING TO THE TOKYO OLYMPICS 2020 PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT.

    5. IS IT FAKE NEWS ? Our beloved PM laments that so much money was spent on arms or weapons research in our beloved Malaysia which does not manufacture arms and is not in the arms trade.

    Is this a fake Opposition joke or is it FOR REAL ?

    IS THIS BELESSED BY THE SAME YB MINISTER WHO LOVES TOY PLANES AND RADIOACTIVE RUBBISH FROM OZ ?

    When our Rakyat find it hard to put food on the table for their loved ones, we have absurd situations and Public money to play with toy guns, toy planes and radioactive rubbish !

    NOT ONLY THAT, AN ENNOBLED YB LOUDLY EXPRESSED HIS OPINION THAT A THIEF IS ONLY A THIEF IF HE OR SHE IS CAUGHT ! I wonder what the Rest of the World think about THIS GEM OF A COMMENT BY A ENNOBLED YB MALAYSIAN OF GOOD STANDING !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. In Malaysia, we must always expect the unexpected !

    Tun

    Another morning full of expectations of the First Trial of a Prime Minister of Malaysia who is the son of a Great Prime Minister of Malaysia for 7 charges of CBT etc. Who would not get excited ? We thought such a thing can only happen in South Korea, Taiwan, Pakistan and Brazil ! But lo and behold ! We are now face with the prospect of malfeasance by a Malaysian Prime Minister with an apparently impeccable background who was groomed to lead when young. Man proposes. God disposes.

    There is a shortage of eye-catching headlines this morning, thus :-

    1. ” IHH DOWNTREND CONTINUES ”

    2. ” IHH HEALTHCARE SERVED WITH QUALIFIED OPINION ”

    For years I have commented that the IHH Model is FLAWED for the following reasons :-

    i) IHH investments in Turkey, Hong Kong, China and India were risky especially in Turkey and India. These places are famous for reasons best known to themselves.
    ii) The Singh Brothers were involved in a Khazanah-Singapore caper in which Khazanah paid out a hefty sum like RM 150 million.
    iii) The Singh Brothers were involved in the multi-billion ringgits caper known as Fortis in India.
    iv) In 2010 or thereabouts, Turkey was in turmoil. Yet IHH rushed in with eager hands to bail out the grateful Turks who were rushing out !. Stupid.
    v) Why invest RM 2.4 Billion in Fortis when it is in financial trouble and being investigated by the Indian authorities ?
    vi) The person in charge of IHH is not qualified to do M & A across international borders.
    vii) My friend the richest Muslim in India told me the GENERIC DRUGS HAVE NO PRICE. Thus, he made a fortune from his generic drugs business in India.
    viii) Why should a fellow be paid RM 100 MILLION SALARY a year if the IHH BUSINESS IS THAT GOOD ? LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE IS BAILING OUT IN A HURRY ?
    ix) CROSS-BORDER BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS BY DIGITS ESPECIALLY FOREIGN ONES UNDER NO CONTROL ARE ALWAYS SUSPICIOUS !
    x) COMPLICATED MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS WHICH ARE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND AND TO GLEAN INFORMATION ARE ALSO SUSPICIOUS.
    xi) THE GHOSN, DATSUN AND RENAULT CAPER IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE LIKE IHH.

    ANOTHER BIG SCANDAL IS LOOMING TUN ? Looks like IHH investment in Turkey is a COMPLETE WRITE-OFF because in a few weeks time, a debt of US$ 250 Million will have to be paid for the Turkey operation ! And our beloved Malaysia is suckered of RM 2.4 Billion in the ailing Fortis of India which is under investigation by the Indian authorities.

    ANOTHER FINE EXAMPLE OF ADMINISTRATING A COUNTRY WITHOUT A MINISTER OF FINANCE 2004-2018 ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  147. mubarakchan Apr 2,2019 10:01 PM

    Tun

    I will draw the attention of all to a subject which I cherished for a very long time. This subject is best illustrated by the following headlines thus :-

    1. ” CHANGES TO WILDLIFE ACT BEING MULLED ”

    2. ” EUTHANISED BEAR NOT THE ONLY ONE KEPT IN POOR CONDITIONS ”

    I have always had a fondness for animals wild or domesticated. At one stage even though I had 7 guns, I refused to take part in hunting flying foxes or snipes.

    It abhors me that our zoos have not been kept up to international standards for a long time. In fact, my view is that we should get rid of all the zoos and release the animals back to the wild.

    In recent years, our beloved Malaysia became a cross-roads of illicit traffic in wild birds and animals due to the lax enforcement of our Laws and corruption.

    If we voted to put the New and Incorruptible Government into POWER to rule over the Rakyat fairly and justly, we should also take care of the caged wild animals under our care. I have noted that this function is left to private organisations and individuals which may not be the best guardians of the hapless wild animals under their care.

    Many years ago, the employees of my Taiping factory caught a huge python. We presented it to the Taiping Zoo. To my horror, a few weeks later, the python was missing probably it was sold due to corruption.

    It is instances like this which I believe the Government should now introduce measures to protect the hapless wild fauna which inhabit our land to safeguard them for our future generations and bring ourselves up to the international standards in keeping with such activities. This area has been neglected for too long due to the lack of Vision and Corruption.

    As we can see now that Corruption rears its ugly head everywhere once the Leadership is corrupt.

    It is well and good to have properly administered zoos. But we must be responsible to ensure that the caged wild animals are properly fed and safe-guarded. If this could not be done, it is better to release these animals back to the wild where they rightfully belong.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    I always said to myself at the beginning of the week that soon it will be week-end ! But we human beings with a sense of everything can determine our future. Unlike my feather bulbul friends which began to chirp and sing only when the Sun rises or perchance I unlatched the front door. Indeed, they began chirping and singing at 6.52 a.m. this morning. I wonder when my friends are going to leave me !

    And the significant headline this morning, thus :-

    ” PM GIVES LESSON ON VALUES ”

    Malaysia may be the only country in the World that a PM gives “Lesson on Values”. And how many Malaysians are aware that our good Tun is qualified to do so ?

    After the end of World War 2, Malaya was a desolate place where all facilities like schools, hospitals etc were tumbled-down and at zero base.

    It was against this back-drop that our Tun was inspired to be a pre-medical student in a derelict environment which lacked the proper educational facilities for higher education. Yet, he managed to travel a long distance in those days to the famous King Edward Vii Medical College, Singapore to satisfy his life-long ambition and desire to succour the poor and the needy.

    THIS WAS HIS CHARACTER IN HIS YOUTH. He had the Will to do good and care for others unlike those who surrounded him in later life from molly-coddled backgrounds. In other words, against all odds, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad began Life with nothing and yet he succeeded against all odds.

    From his success in his medical studies in an entirely different environment from his hometown in North Malaya, he pursued his dream after graduation but the spark of Malay Nationalism fired him to do greater things than medical assistance for the Rakyat.

    His ambition was to mount to the highest level of human endeavour in any country which was Politics.

    He could not envisage that he would be the Prime Minister of Malays/Malaysia, TWICE IN HIS LIFETIME.

    This was the Man. This was his CHARACTER.

    No Cash is King which abhors him or any other doctor ! His focus is TO HELP ALL THE RAKYAT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYA/MALAYSIA TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY as he progressively marched along the stony path of Malayan/Malaysian Politics to the sound of his own drums.

    He succeeded gloriously in the face of all sorts of obstacles, troublemakers, naysayers and detractors who poured the finest quality of vitriol on him. They soon learnt to their cost how strong in mind, body and spirit our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has !

    And his SUCCESS IN MEDICINE AND POLITICS was based on his firm beliefs in the age-old virtues of propriety, integrity, trustworthiness. loyalty, filial piety, standards, ethics, and honour which are backed by determination, discipline and hard-work coupled by the MOTIVATION TO DO GOOD FOR ALL THE RAKYAT WITHIN HIS POWER AS THE PRIME MINISTER.

    Who is better qualified than our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ? Cash is King abhors him as with his colleagues the doctors.

    Finally, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad whom the Family did not want him to be in Politics again after 2003, took up the task of cleaning the Augean Stables left behind by two Fake Prime Ministers 2004-2018.

    This Darkest or Fake Period of our beloved Malaysia cost the Rakyat dear.

    All the sweat, blood and toil of the decades of the Leadership of the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Huseein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad were wasted and gone.

    This wanton Leadership during 2004-2018 of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites can only be recorded in History as Leadership by Fakes which did not believe in the VIRTUES expressed by the good Tun.

    Let this be a lesson to all the Rakyat that CASH IS KING DOES NOT PAY ONLY VIRTUES !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  149. mubarakchan Apr 1,2019 10:21 PM

    Tun

    School for my grand-daughter began in earnest again on this Monday morning. No Monday blues for her or me as both of us are clear about our missions before us.

    Lo and Behold ! As I opened the front door at 6.52 a.m. the pair of resident bulbuls began to chirp in their nest in the young banyan tree. Less singing these days but more chirping. I wonder if the young have arrived.

    On to the more interesting themes of the day arising from our colourful and voluble politicians – some are just plain awkward, some try to please and be nice. But all did not pass any examination to be a politician, a Malaysian politician. Let us be guided by the headlines made by them thus :-

    1. ” DR M AMAZED AT FACTORY’S SLICK OP.”

    2, ” WEST COAST EXPRESSWAY TO EASE TRAFFIC ”

    3. ” GOVT REVIEWS 121 DEALS, SAVES RM 806M ”

    4. ” THIRD LINK BETWEEN SINGAPORE AND MALAYSIA NEED NOT BE A BRIDGE ”

    5. ” COMMITTEE TO MEET TO DECIDE ON WET MARKETS ”

    6. ” SAYS IT COMPLIES WITH RELEVANT REGULATIONS, LYNAS REFUTES FAUZIAH’S CLAIM ”

    1. The brand new pineapple juice factory in Kedah is a fine example of Malay enterprise and endeavour. Our good Tun is actually an expert at this because he was once in charge of FIMA in the late 1970s with the distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail as his right hand man in Johor. Shades of the US$ 5 Million Stradivarius collector – the closest aide now in Singapore !

    It is good there are examples of turning our agricultural produce into internationally marketable products with higher values.. The other products which come to mind are tomato, guava, ginger, corn and a wide range of vegetable products. But charity begins at home.

    The New and Incorruptible Government must ensure that entrepreneurs who support our own agricultural products make PROFITS. The latest equipment from Japan, Switzerland, Germany or elsewhere could be leased at lowest rates so as to provide more capital for their success. These include the factory buildings, transport etc.

    It is these small entrepreneurial undertakings in the small towns which provide an effective socio-economic imprint at the lowest level. It is good because a Government can never cover all areas under its rule.

    Such entrepreneurs should not be hampered by the difficulty of raising capital in an honest environment. More and more of this class of entrepreneurs should be encouraged as the Policy to safeguard the rural inhabitants and their environment.

    The Kedah pineapple juice factory is a good Model for all the States. Instead of spending RM 1 Million on a toy plane, RM 1 Million in a SME goes a long way in socio-economic terms.

    Today, in the social media, I saw two flying vehicles which cost only US$ 20,000 each, not RM 1 Million or RM 500,000 !

    2. ” WEST COAST EXPRESSWAY TO EASE TRAFFIC ”

    This mega project was first mooted by my friend more than 16 years ago. I was aware of his constant and strenuous attempts to get this essential Public Project off the ground. His efforts were mired by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites and to make it worse, even the red bureaucratic tape was corrupt.

    THIS WEST COAST EXPRESSWAY SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN OPERATION IN 2008 not 2019 with increased costs and time consuming delays. In the meantime, an ultra-expensive MRT was built in Kuala Lumpur which serves only 100,000 commuters daily if any ! So much time and money wasted through CORRUPTION !

    3. Kudos to the Minister of Finance for recouping the padded money from the Government Contracts for the Rakyat.

    In other words, EVERY GOVERNMENT CONTRACT BETWEEN 2004-2018 WAS PADDED. This was how money was stolen from the Government coffers in broad daylight and siphoned out of the country. CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 6 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.

    What about the GLCs ? Turkey is a country now undergoing financial difficulties which were known to happen as long ago as 2010 when IHH stepped in with eager hands to take-over from the grateful Turks.

    4. There is no necessity to build a Third Link if the Straits between the old Causeway and Tuas is filled up and the border becomes just a monsoon drain with a chain-link fence.

    Wealth is created from the reclaimed land together with a water reservoir in between. Every morning we can greet our neighbours across ,” Selamat Pagi, Singapura ”

    5. A YB suggested to set up a Committee to decide on the wet-markets owned by foreigners.

    What a waste of time and money amongst the YBs drinking kopi-O !

    Whoever is in charge probably DBKL and the other Municipalities with the Rules and Regulations, should be instructed to get these foreigners arrested and deported. And tender out these wet markets fairly and justly. ANOTHER CORRUPT SYMPTOM OF THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES 2004-2018 !

    6. The Lynas Management must have thought it was smart and a cinch that they found our beloved Malaysia and its lax ways of enforcement of the Laws.

    THEY WERE TRULY AND PROPERLY CAUGHT BY MY ANALOGY – Unlike Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan which have only ONE DOOR to enter, Malaysia has 10 doors. When a foreigner enters a door, there stood behind a friendly and hospitable Malaysian who answered with a smile when asked, ‘ NO PROBLEM ‘. This was when the PROBLEM BEGAN. The difficulty was to find the right door to enter ! Sorry Lynas ! WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ?

    Hopefully, our beloved Malaysia becomes a ONE DOOR country again under the 60 year rule of the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    Today is a typical Malaysian week-end of peace and calm.

    For some, it is a time to catch up with the reading. And others to take their families out to the malls for a stroll and makan in their short pants and slippers.

    But our present lives could be better, much better if the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites had not permitted the Nation’s financial resources to run wild to the extent of zooming the debts up to RM ONE TRILLION from about RM 300 Billion in 2003 !

    This period should be known as THE FAKE PERIOD OF MALAYSIA 2004-2018.

    Why ? Malaysia is not a developed country which needs forward planning and safe-guarding of its precious human and natural resources always. This can only be achieved by proper and NORMAL rules of governance. Like a factory manufacturing products for export, there should be no leaks of money or undue waste anywhere because the cost of the product will either kill the golden goose or makes it a success.

    WHY ARE ALL THE MONOPOLISTIC AGENCIES OF THE BN GOVERNMENT LOSE MONEY LIKE TNB, TELEKOM, MAS ETC ? It was the digits in POWER were involved up to their necks in CORRUPTION !

    And the headlines of the Opposition media today, thus :-

    1. ” DR M SAYS HE’S PM IN A HURRY ” – a mischievous headline

    2. ” NO CABINET RE-SHUFFLE, NEW MINISTERS NEED EXPERIENCE ”

    3. ” SORRY SINGAPORE : MALAYSIA DUMP ASSETS TO COPE WITH US$245 BILLION DEBT.”

    4. ” TOTAL HOUSEHOLD DEBT IN MALAYSIA ”

    5. ” YAWNING CHASM BETWEEN GLC AND NON-GLC BANK CEOs ”

    6. ” SAVING GEORGE TOWN’S CHARM ”

    All the headlines came from the Opposition media except for one from the SCMP.

    1. The spinning of the actual words uttered by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as published in different Opposition media can only be described as creative and innovative.

    All doctors are trained from day one in the first term the meaning of Life and how to save Life to the best of their ability. Those who could not stomach the first day of the first term became dentists.

    Throughout Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s career the heavy hallmarks of a brilliant and well-trained doctor could be discerned in his Policies, speeches and political practice based on facts, logic and common sense. The distinctive brand of his politics is that HE DID NOT IMPLEMENT POLICIES WHICH HARM ANYONE.

    His conscience is as clear as crystal in this aspect unlike Lee Kuan Yew with his 1972 2 Child Family Policy, the Thaksin Purchase etc. Vide. http://www.chedet,cc.org Archives September 2010 ‘Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’.

    Tun’s greatest trait is his humbleness. HE NEVER BOASTED ABOUT HIS ACHIEVEMENTS ANYWHERE UNLIKE LEE KUAN YEW.

    The closest aides created ALL the scandals by crossing the red line of no return so that they lined their pockets and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad took the blame. I should know because I was the first and did not cross the red line of no return. There was no scandal. No one knew me which suited me fine.

    One closest foreign aide not only boasted in mid-1980s that he had the ears of the good and the great of KL to Dr Goh Keng Swee, DPM of Singapore in front of my cousin in the Singapore Island Golf Club but also used the name of his patron to further his corrupt and crooked agenda.

    In 1982, he carried the Samsonite of the capable and distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail but at the end he owned a bank and collected Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece which he on-lent to the Singapore or Shanghai Philharmonic but not to the KL Philharmonic.

    Believe it or not, this foreigner even kicked out his Patron’s friend from Cycle & Carriage Ltd so that he could sell the best assets cheap to his tycoon friends in KL and HK who were also my friends, stupid !

    How many Malaysians are aware that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is very strong in mind and body ?

    I am certain he is exceedingly happy to the chagrin of his detractors, naysayers and trouble-makers.

    When a person is happy and satisfied within himself or herself. there is NO FEAR OF WHAT THE FUTURE MAY BRING. Only those who harmed others with a guilty conscience fear the consequences which will confront them as surely as the Sun rises.

    IT IS A NORM FOR HAPPY AND HEALTHY PEOPLE TO LIVE BEYOND 100 YEARS OLD THESE DAYS.

    My sister died recently at 100 years. She was driving a car up to 92 years old.

    I expect our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with his good mind and health will be around for many years to come. Hence, I expect him to be still with the DSAI and the Team as long as they are in POWER for the next 60 years !

    The Secret to have a Good and Long Life like our Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah is to have a NORMAL LIFE which is happy, active and disciplined – not to abuse our privileges whatever these meant ! And we must not forget that our mind and body began to deteriorate at the age of 30 onwards. So when the detractors, naysayers and the trouble-makers made their snide remarks, they were already on the road to their Destiny ! Also, they would have realised by now that pouring the finest quality vitriol on Tun has no effect at all. Circa 2004-2015.

    2. Yes, you are correct in permitting the Ministers to learn on the job. It is better to have an honest but inexperienced Minister than a crooked and experienced Minister.

    3. IT IS THE CORRECT POLICY TO SELL ALL THE FIXED ASSETS OVERSEAS like the ex-Gammon House, Hong Kong, the Singapore 1/2 Office Building, the offices of the Tourist Board in London, etc. the Battersea Power Station Development, all property assets overseas in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore etc.

    It was absurd for Sime Darby to own properties in Liberia, fake offices all over, and the Solomon Islands, etc. Turkey has been grappling with her financial problems since 2009 when the eager Malaysians took over from the grateful Turks ! The commissions must have made it very worthwhile to risk the Rakyat’s hard-earned money. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 3 strokes of the rotan !

    By disposing of the useless overseas assets owned by the Government through the GLCs Sime Darby, FELDA, MARA etc, BNM can have another US$ 10 Billion in the reserves !

    4. The total household debt in Malaysia was created by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites between 2004-2018 WHEN THERE WAS NO MINISTER OF FINANCE !

    How to govern a country of 31 million without a MINISTER OF FINANCE ? No where in the World’s history has this ever happened. WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ?

    To compound this horrible fact, the ineffective BN Minister of Law created 2 BANKRUPTCY LAWS INSTEAD OF ONE. The old Bankruptcy Act 1967 was not revised but only a new Act of October 2017 was attached to it.

    This new Act had NO BANKRUPTS BEGINNING OCTOBER 2017 BECAUSE ALL THE BANKRUPTS INCLUDING 200,000 YOUNG MALAY BANKRUPTS AND ANOTHER OVER 200,000 BANKRUPTS ARE INCARCERATED IN THE PUNITIVE VICTORIAN STYLE OLD BANKRUPT ACT 1967. Like this the numbers of bankrupts will RISE TO ONE MILLION BANKRUPTS IN JUST 5 YEARS TIME WHO WILL ALWAYS VOTE AGAINST THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT IN THE URBAN AREAS ! Think !

    The BOTTLE-NECK is in the old Bankruptcy Act 1967 which was NOT REVISED BUT RE-LABELLED BY THE INEFFECTIVE AND FAKE MINISTER unlike Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia which give the bankrupts a second chance. With these countries all bankrupts are discharged WITHIN 3 YEARS. IN MALAYSIA, BANKRUPTS COULD BE INCARCERATED A LIFE-TIME !

    A good example is the 1982 Marriage Reform Act which accepted ALL the marriages before this date. This is fair and just. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018.

    5. ” THE YAWNING CHASM BETWEEN GLC AND NON-GLC BANK CEOs.”

    THE FASTEST AND BEST SOLUTION TO THIS SALARY PROBLEM IS TO SELL OFF ALL THE GLCs but only retain control in the essential and vital GLCs. The YAWNING CHASM DISAPPEARS PRONTO.

    i) The democratic and elected Government of the New and Incorruptible Government has no BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT. It is up to the Government to provide the essentials for the Rakyat to produce the profits to be taxed as revenues by the Government.

    No Government should have the POWER and use this POWER to do business to make MONEY. THIS IS COMMUNISTIC ! Only 3 authoritarian countries have GLCs Russia, China and Singapore. There are at least 100 corrupt Chinese from the GLCs on the run overseas.

    ii) THE RINGGIT ONE TRILLION DEBT IS GOVERNMENT DEBTS NOT PRIVATE SECTOR DEBTS. This was because the crooks used the leverage of the Government Public Money to line their pockets under THE PRETEXT OF MAKING MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT. If THIS MONEY IS RETURNED TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR, THE ECONOMY WILL BLOOM AND BOOM !

    6. ” SAVING GEORGE TOWN’S CHARM ”

    AS LONG AS THE STATE GOVERNMENT OF PULAU PINANG THINKS PULAU PINANG IS SINGAPORE AND FOLLOW THE LEE KUAN YEW’S MODEL, NOTHING WILL BE ACHIEVED BECAUSE SINGAPORE IS NOT PULAU PINANG !

    There are so many ways to make PULAU PINANG one of the wealthiest States if they THINK HARD ENOUGH. The many MEGA SCHEMES PROPOSED WILL ONLY DESTROY THE HUMAN RESOURCES, THE ENVIRONMENT AND ITS FAMED HERITAGE SITES WITH CONCRETE AND HUGE IRREDEEMABLE LOANS !

    The other way is FAST, CHEAP, NON-POLITICAL AND EASY TO DO WITH THE RIGHT MIND-SET ! And the best of all, THIS OTHER WAY IS THE WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR ALL. TO COPY THE LEE KUAN YEW MODEL OF SINGAPORE IS BOUND TO FAIL FOR PULAU PINANG because it is too POLITICAL AND SADDLED WITH HUGE LOANS WHICH ARE NOT REDEEMABLE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    With all due respect and my humble apologies for leaving out the capable, dynamic and honest Minister of Transport from my list of real Ministers in the New and Incorruptible Government. His inadvertent slip was that he did not send his wife to do shopping whilst in Beijing. Little did he realise that the nit-picking Singaporeans would make snide remarks that his wife would follow him right to the official conference table ! To err is human. To forgive is divine !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    After a restful night and without the task of ferrying my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK with the friendly teachers and pupils, I look forward to comment on our wonderful Malaysian Society which is now full of FAKES as thoughts on these came tumbling out of the deep recesses of my brain. What you famously call ‘MIND-SET’ to your audience who probably were mindfully in the basement whilst you spoke to them on the 88th storey ! Yes ! The mental gap is that big !

    I am sure you have through your observations of decades like myself trained to see and not to look, the FUNNY side of our Malaysian Society eg, the Income Tax Free RM 2 Incorporated places of worship, the Potemkin set-ups of Government offices and even a fake Potemkin steak restaurant in Solaris which was filled with real Civil Servants given free dinner coupons whilst the going was good with the Government’s grant of RM 350 Million to build a cattle empire in tropical Malaysia based on Ponzi Scheme principles. Believe it or not, the steak restaurant was packed full of customers every night ! And the list goes on’. And suddenly, ranking officials of the land were found with fake Ph.Ds why not fake B.A’s or B.Sc’s ? But who can beat those fellows with at least 2 sets of shares of their own listed companies ?

    If you recall, there was a fellow who invoked the fear of Heaven with his pre-dinner spiritual hors d’oeuvres who thought no one knew he had a lush TNB contract in his back pocket. You helped him.

    And further, there was another fellow who was very keen to become a billionaire and in desperation produced a plastic plane which did not fly in Melaka of all places. You helped him.

    Not only that, another fellow with a topi on his head who turned away from me with my outstretched hand at the Bintang Cycle & Carriage launch of the Mercedes E Model in 1984, now claims to be the multi-media king of the World. He would have been still-born if I had given his BBDO portfolio to a Bumiputra who approached me. You helped him.

    Who says there is discrimination in our beloved Malaysia ? Just look at those DIY fellows who began with only marbles in their pockets. We like all Malaysians to be rich Tun ! No problem.

    And the FUNNY side of our Malaysian Society goes on.

    I could only recall that one Minister proposed in the 1990s to spend RM 350 Million to turn the RRI Station in Welwyn Garden City, England into a sports training facility for Malaysian athletes by flying them 7,000 miles to and fro into a cold, damp and grey climate without nasi lemak. There are always 365 days in a year.

    In 2017, this same person misled over 400,000 bankrupts of which over 200,000 were young Malays that the Bankruptcy Act 1967 would be revised. What this person did was just to attach a new Bankruptcy Law to the old Act which resulted in all the bankrupts be incarcerated in a punitive Victorian manner and not given a second chance unlike Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. The new Bankruptcy Act only began from October 2017 WITH NO BANKRUPTS ! It’s another BN Fake.

    In other words, this Minister turned the single Bankruptcy Act 1967 into 2, the old and the new. It was alleged this person was influenced by financial interests to keep the punitive measures in place which they dare not do it in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. Vide. The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018. This is really another FUNNY event. Where else but Malaysia ?

    From 2004 to 2018, our beloved Malaysia was hit by “Prime Ministers” unlike the REAL PRIME MINISTERS OF THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEIN ONN AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD !

    This was the CASH IS KING PERIOD OF MALAYSIAN POLITICAL FARCE ! No other President or Prime Minister in the World ever said these words in history ! This is another FUNNY side of Malaysia’s growing up saga.

    With the driblets of the FUNNY side of Malaysia’s Leaderships, I noticed the following over the past 10 months from the current Leadership with the exception of Tun, Ministers of Finance, Foreign Affairs, Interior, Defence, Labour, Youths and Sports etc., thus :-

    1. The black shoes caper.
    2. Hotel swimming pools.
    3. Minister demoted himself to Vice-Chancellor
    4. Vice-Chancellor of Maybank-Kim Eng Securities RM 1 billion fame.
    5. More lounges for tired teachers. I noticed there were these lounges in my grand-daughter’s SMKs since 10 years ago.
    6. More perks for teachers without them asking.
    7. Cashless schools of the future means more expenditure.
    8. Train undergraduates in universities how to do business by opening petrol stations in the campus.
    9. Toy plane with KDK fans like engines. Shades of pre-World War II comics of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. Cost RM 1 Million too !
    10. New Bill to stop bottom pinching which is as old as Adam and Eve.
    11. Nursery in the Dewan Rakyat. More money required.
    12. A list of 3,000 paedophiles which in time will not be up-dated.
    13. One sleepy eyed YB replied in the LGBT capital of Europe, Berlin that he was not aware of any LGBT in our beloved Malaysia.
    14. Another YB suggested that professional spiritual officers for the sick. Shades of bomohs, Thai style masseurs or physiotherapists of both kinds or the Dutch approach by satisfying the sexual needs of the aged with volunteer sex workers. Any Malaysian volunteers ? Soon we have Institutes or Universities of Bomohs with Ph.Ds !
    15. Abolish the Death Penalty whilst young children are murdered and tons of drugs found regularly. It is better not to put drug addicts in jail.
    16. Back-stabbing a common Malaysian trait.
    17. How to turn Pulau Pinang into a Singapore when Pulau Pinang is not Singapore ?
    18. ‘It will take a long time to correct the System’. It is not the System, Madam ! It was the digits who had the POWER ! Sack the whole lot and do not be misled by FAKE ADVICE TO SAVE THEMSELVES, THE CROOKS !

    You have correctly diagnosed the MALADIES as mentioned above in your kind manner as ‘MIND-SET’. And DSAI put them as issues to be solved in a basic manner which is putting food and jobs on the table of the Rakyat. Anything else as mentioned above is FRIVOLOUS AND IRRELEVANT!

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    But the problem began which China found out to their cost was this which I have mentioned for years. Unlike Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, etc which have only ONE DOOR to enter, our beloved Malaysia has TEN DOORS. When a foreigner enters a door, he would find a friendly Malaysian behind the door who would say “NO PROBLEM” when asked. This is where the problem begins ! EVEN CHINA WAS CAUGHT BY OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S 10 DOORS ANALOGY ! Shades of ECRL, I presume, dear Watson ! so said Sherlock Homes.

    As I began to gather my thoughts to write my comments, I could hear the distant rumble of thunder which foretell the forthcoming storm. True enough, the storm soon reached its intensity over my house. A welcome thunderstorm which we Malaysians are so accustomed to. Water to cool us, water for the birds and the plants and precious Water to sustain our Malaysian Way of Life away from the stealing, cheating and back-stabbing of the political arena. And the interesting headlines are thus :-

    1. ” GOVERNMENT SHOULD NO LONGER BE IN BUSINESS ”

    2. ” BANK NEGARA CALLS FOR CRITICAL LABOUR REFORMS WITH LABOUR UNDERPAID. ”

    3. FT. ” DEMOCRATS SHOULD REMEMBER, ‘ ITS THE ECONOMY, STUPID “. As long as growth is happening, voters will tolerate presidential flaws. ”

    1. On the question of why the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites were involved in business, the refrain from them was that the BN Government was making money for the Rakyat.

    This was the most stupid answer of all because no elected Democratic Government in the Western World do business to make money for its people. Only 3 authoritarian countries of the World have GLCs being Singapore, Russia and China.

    The Malaysian version of GLCs have no sound basis but to act as corrupt agents of the corrupt BN Leadership which collapsed after the top became rotten.

    Singapore’s GLCs were just a façade to cover up the Black Under Counter Trades in arms trading and other illicit trades during the Cold War 1948-1989 by Lee Kuan Yew.

    Russia and China found out to their cost after adopting the Singapore Model which flaws these Nations found out too late. The rampant Corruption and Nepotism in the wide open continental landscape of Russia and China. How to control so many crooks spread out over the vast expanse of land ? There were at least 100 corrupt GLC Chinese officials on the run overseas.

    Only in tiny Singapore and under the baleful eyes of Lee Kuan Yew that these recalcitrant could be reined in because in Singapore, a person’s credentials were just a phone call away.

    In any event, it was not the Singaporean GLCs which made the big money. It was the Black Under Counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    With the loss of the 2%-3% from the Black Under Counter Trades, Singapore’s GDP from 2002 to 2017 languished at about 3% unlike the fizzy 7% GDP of the Cold War years.

    Because Lee Kuan Yew realised that the big loss of revenue derived from the Black Under Counter Trades of the Cold War which was grabbed by the BRICS after Uncle Sam’s hegemonic post-Cold War spiel, ‘ Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights’, he conjured his 4 Initiatives as his legacy to save Singapore for his inheeritors being the ill-conceived Temasek, FT imports, 2 casinos and the Malaysia/Malays Killer the TPPA/CPTPP. All failed.

    2. Bank Negara Malaysia is correct in its observation from the facts that Malaysian workers are under-paid.

    There are many underlying factors contributing to this.

    Amongst them are the age-old MONOPOLISTIC CORRUPT ARCHAIC AND USELESS DISCOUNT HOUSE SYSTEM WHICH ADDS TO THE COST OF BANKING FOR THE RAKYAT. No country in the World used this System for over 50 years. It is alleged that the Managers of the Bank Negara Malaysia were bought up by a major Discount House since the mid-1970s which is the longest Corruption in Malaysia if not the World. Abolish the MONOPOLISTIC, CORRUPT, ARCHAIC AND USELESS DISCOUNT HOUSE SYSTEM OWNED BY A VERY FEW.

    3. The FT or Financial Times highlighted the importance of creating growth for the economy even though the President behaved like a clown.

    Hence, it is imperative that the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side should focus and work towards reviving a robust Malaysian Economy so that the goodies will flow down the slippery slopes of the POWER PYRAMID once more to the out-stretched hands of proletariat at the bottom

    From 2004-2018, the goodies were observed to defy gravity by flowing upwards to the Apex to the unhappiness of the proletariat – a period of 14 years of waste and enjoyment by the ruling BN Leadership and its elites who did not know the meaning of the phrase, ‘ IT’S THE ECONOMY STUPID !’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Toy planes, nursery in the Dewan Rakyat, no hard drinks in clubs, back-stabbing, abolish the death penalty, a new bill to stop bottom pinching etc WILL NOT MOVE THE ECONOMY. ONLY THE BASIC MOVES WHICH YOU TUN AND YOUR GOOD ADVISER ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO KNOW HOW TO MOVE IT ! Let us hope all YBs understand what TEAMWORK IS ALL ABOUT BY NOW SO THAT THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT WILL RULE FOR THE NEXT 60 YEARS AND GROW FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH !

    I have to look high and low for a worthwhile headline which attracted my eye to comment on today despite attempts by the Opposition media to raise or turn minor issues into something important. Such is the present political environment of a stable, correct and good governance New and Incorruptible Government.

    The only 2 headlines of some credence are thus :-

    1. ” JEGA HITS THE JACKPOT WITH 4D.”

    2. ” HEALTH MINISTRY WANTS PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED ‘SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE’ OFFICERS – MINISTER ”

    The first headline is about MERITOCRACY and the second is about a Minister who believes in the art of spiritualism to augment Western medicine. Most pundits thought the YB was referring to Malaysia’s famed bomohs ! Like this, the bomohs will soon demand an Institute or University of their own to be PROFESSIONAL with PhDs to boot !

    Jega is one of the few Malaysians who brought honour, respect and admiration to Malaysia in the 1960s culminating in being the fastest Asian in the New Delhi Asian Games.

    I was privileged to meet his father who was a humble Civil Servant. His son Jega brought the parents much joy and happiness because in those halcyon days, Malaysians did not think of MONEY MONEY MONEY but performed whatever tasks given to them to the best of their ability.

    As I always said that to achieve Glory anywhere in the World, a person should engage in Politics, Sports or Academia. Those interested in making MONEY< MONEY, MONEY in these fields especially in Politics can only end up in dishonour and disaster.

    Jega apparently followed his own version of his iconic success being the 4Ds eg. Direction, Determination, Dedication and Discipline.

    These virtues are as applicable to a good doctor and great sportsman as to some aspiring politicians.

    HE DEFINITELY DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE BLAME GAME AND STICKS KNIVES INTO HIS PEERS BACK TO BLAME THEM FOR HIS OWN MISTAKES OR FAILURES. This holistic trait is the hallmark of a honourable person which achieved much through MERITOCRACY OF HIS OWN MAKING.

    How I wish all Malaysian Politicians today are like Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Dr Jega combined as one.

    But in our World of the Living, nothing is perfect unlike Lee Kuan Yew who tried his levelled best using his brains, all the tricks in the book and the resources of the tiny State of Singapore to bend things his way. No matter how hard he tried, he failed because his intentions were never honourable. Man proposes. God disposes.

    As a young and independent country of only 62 years old, our beloved Malaysia is undergoing the very same phases as Britain in the 18th Century and the United States in the 19th Century in terms of political and socio-economic developments. You name it. We have got it in present day Malaysia.

    From the holy holy to the back-stabbers – a kaleidoscope of milling Humanity trying to make good from the rough and tumble melange of pushing, shouting and cursing politicians.

    Little do these fellows are aware what they are doing is just 'Kitchen sink' politics of the worst kind. Only Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI by his side could present a decorum of fine politics as befitting Political Leaders of a country Malaysia which is now one of the 4 small important countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Where are you Singapore ?

    A LEADER IS BORN NOT MADE !

    2. On this debatable subject of professionally trained spiritual guidance officers as expressed by the Minister, what does he really mean by his comment ?

    Was he referring to professionally trained bomohs, masseurs, physiotherapists who proved both services or like in Holland of years ago, sexual services were provide for the aged ON DEMAND !

    Is the YB operating outside his Portfolio which is to provide more affordable hospitals and medical staff to as many as possible ?

    Did he consider the impact of his comment on the other side of the coin which this 'bomoh' thing could be construed as frivolous and jocular in the eyes of the majority ? Like the toy plane and the Dewan Rakyat nursery ?

    Or the YB is trying to be uppish in his own mind and eyes ?

    Whatever it was, the fine example of Malaysia's Dr Jaga is a good example to all and sundry. Meritocracy is recognised through true achievements whether in Politics, Sports or Academia not through cheating, stealing or back-stabbing which are ALL COWARDLY ACTS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  155. mubarakchan Mar 26,2019 11:36 PM

    Tun

    There are some significant headlines today which should not be ignored, thus :-

    1. ” IMPROVE WATER SECURITY ”

    2. ” HEATWAVE PUSHING UP SPRITZER SALES ”

    3. ” ACT FAST TO PROMOTE PALM OIL ”

    4. ” ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS NO LONGER MAIN CONSIDERATION FOR SINGAPORE EMPLOYERS. MINISTRY OF MANPOWER, SINGAPORE ”

    1 & 2. The importance of a safe, clean and adequate supply of WATER at all times for our beloved Malaysia should not be questioned or ignored.

    I reckon WATER is the most important of all our natural resources which need to be safeguarded, enhanced and conserve at all times.

    The many incidents of the pollution of our water sources in recent years go to show the lack of policy, vision and will to protect our WATER by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    So much money was stolen coupled with so much time spent on fun and games at the Rakyat’s expense that this important natural resource has been neglected since 2004. No one cared.

    IT IS NOW IMPORTANT FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT TO ESTABLISH A SPECIAL UNIT OR MINISTRY TO SAFEGUARD, PROTECT AND ENHANCE OUR WATER RESOURCES WITH A LONG TERM POLICY OF AT LEAST 25 YEARS. Our beloved Malaysia is still fortunate to have rain.

    The task of saving, up-dating pipes, stopping leaks and education of the Rakyat to save WATER begins NOW not tomorrow which will be too late.

    A suggested significant first step could be to amend the Constitution thus,

    ” NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE SOLD, TRANSPORTED OR EXPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE ”

    A new industry will spring up being that concerning raw water and treated water as exemplified by the headline on the increased business for Spritzer !

    3. ” Act fast to promote palm oil ” so said the Minister. The year is 2019 !

    The palm oil industry was neglected from 2004-2018 – 14 years of inaction by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    They do not even know that palm oil fights for its place in the World’s market all the time against 8 other edible oils. The biggest competitor is soya bean oil.

    The work in promoting, protecting and advancing the interests of the palm oil producers rests with the Ministry of Primary Commodities. This has been on-going since the oil palm was Malaysianised in the 1960s. This fight by palm oil interest will have no ending but a life-long one. This I hope the YB Minister will recognised.

    Not only that there are many factors to back up the efficiency and cost of production of the palm oil. Therefore, it is in the interests of all to join hands and work overtime to protect the interests of the palm oil industry throughout the World. This is no easy task as the records showed the 14 years of neglect by a Corrupt BN Government not in the interests of the Rakyat. My best wishes are with the YB Minister !

    4. ” ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS NO LONGER MAIN CONSIDERATIONS FOR SINGAPORE EMPLOYERS. MINISTRY OF MANPOWER, SINGAPORE ”

    I hope all Malaysian copy-cats will read this ominous headline from Singapore THAT MERITOCRACY HAD FAILED IN MERITOCRATIC SINGAPORE ! In fact this is old news.

    In 2014, 2 Senior Ministers of the Singapore Government announced that in future, applicants for jobs and promotions will be considered NOT ONLY ON THEIR ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS BUT ALSO ON THEIR OTHER TALENTS. They have admitted the FAILURE OF SINGAPORE’S MUCH TOUTED MERITOCRACY POLICY WHICH WAS LAPPED UP BY THE MALAYSIAN ADMIRERS OF LEE KUAN YEW !

    The Failed Policy of Meritocracy as emanated from Lee Kuan Yew’s Bluffology or BS based on graduates from the Ivy League or Oxbridge or HIMSELF was designed to keep the hoi-polloi out of the higher levels of the Singapore Government – the ruling class.

    How many Singaporeans could enter the Ivy League or Oxbridge or be like Lee Kuan Yew ?

    Some of those who graduated could not fit into the small and restricted Singaporean community.

    A few years ago in 2010, one Saturday evening a female Cambridge graduate stripped herself naked and together with her equally naked Caucasian boy friend romped around Holland Village, Singapore. Her explanation was that she found her job boring. The Singapore Government did not know what to do. No action was taken.

    THIS LATEST HEADLINE ON THE FAILURE OF MERITOCRACY IN SINGAPORE ONLY UNDERLINED WHAT THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT FOUND OUT A LONG TIME AGO AND OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED IN 2014 ! Malaysian copy-cats please take note. The grass is not always greener on the other side !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Lee Kuan Yew’s BLUFFOLOGY OR BS ON MERITOCRACY WAS FAKE AND COST SINGAPORE DEARLY !

    Tun

    As we marched further into the week, more political headlines of minor importance are created by the Opposition media to stir the unwary souls of the old and the young.

    We Malaysians were once apolitical and left the mind-boggling problems to our elected leaders of the day.

    But after 2003 and as times began to be harder and difficult, the reality of a corrupt BN Leadership began to sink in during 2004-2018 that the trust we entrusted to them was being abused with the notion that the Rakyat were ignorant and stupid. This opened Pandora’s Box which released all kinds unknown creatures to the firmament.

    Hence, the orderliness of the past before 2004 is no more.

    Neophytes now insult and claim verbal space by talking nonsense without propriety, facts and manners. Fortunately, talking is FREE in our beloved Malaysia but not in Singapore where verbal freedom could be bankrupted by those in POWER.

    How many Malaysians are aware that there is no book written to guarantee a person to be a President or a Prime Minister ? Also, there is no book written to make you a millionaire ?

    But there are thousands of books on Political Philosophies or Business Management. The former will turn a person suitable for Tanjong Rambutan if taken too seriously and the latter will definitely make a person a better Manager.

    Both Politics and Business are fine arts if practised properly and will be rewarding.

    But the difficulty is NO BOOK HAS BEEN WRITTEN ON THESE SUBJECTS.

    Hence, in a place like Malaysia, we find all kinds of people engaged in either politics which does not require capital but only the Gift of the Gab and in business which cannot actually be defined as a profession unlike law, medicine, accountancy and engineering.

    And from the records ONLY THE STRONG MINDED WITH CHARACTER WILL SURVIVE THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE OF MALAYSIAN POLITICS ! Only the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad fit the bill !

    Out of the rojak pot of self-appointed politicians of which most have big mouths and egos, there are those who do their daily preening and display of an ego which has to be burnished in a narcissistic manner. A common Malaysian trait is to run down others. To an onlooker like myself who had seen so many of such characters come and go through the years, this is z common as A, B, C !

    Whenever a problem arises, I always go back to the basics. I never ACCUSE WITHOUT KNOWING MY OWN BASIC POSITION AND THE FACTS. It is just like looking at one’s face in the mirror every morning. KNOW THYSELF BEFORE POINTING YOUR MIDDLE FINGER AT OTHERS !

    The best course of action is to say nothing at all. Man or Woman proposes. God disposes. And avoid being a tool for the use of naysayers, troublemakers, crooks or Singaporeans !

    Now with the eager beaver Opposition media playing up every little mistake made by the YBs of the incumbent New and Incorruptible Government, to make them look like greenhorns, clowns or fools, they certainly have a field day with the new YBs ever ready to shoot their mouths off.

    I asked one of them why this wa so. The innocent replied that this was done to inform their constituents that they were doing something. To these YBs, hot air is more important than deeds or delivery !

    If these YBs are not careful and cautious with the words, the combined effect one day will blow the whole lot up like a fission bomb.

    The above is all about COMMON SENCE !

    The Opposition headlines are to be believed or not. The choice is yours alone, ( the only big stick the Opposition has left is just the media ). From The Star, thus :-

    1. ” DR M UPSET BY NURUL’S REMARK ” True or false ? To divide and rule ?

    2. ” PM PLEADS FOR CIVIL SERVANTS TO BE PATIENT ” True or false ? The PM weak ?

    3. ” MB TO QUIT AS CLUB PRESIDENT AFTER BEER BAN FAILS ‘ True or false ? Political agitation ?

    4. ” IT WAS ERROR IN TRANSLATION ” True or false ? Bungling ?

    5. ” FIRESTORM OVER ‘DICTATOR’ REMARK ” True or false ? Magnify a storm in the tea-cup ?

    6. ” CALLS FOR NEW PAC CHIEF GROW LOUDER ” True or false ? Fake creation a’la king ?

    Fake news are now produced all over the World for vested interests. To the weak-minded, ignorant and camp-followers these fake news would be treated as true, like those fake news about himself created by Lee Kuan Yew during his lifetime using the resources of a tiny State.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem is no fake news !

    For those readers who are interested to know more about Lee Kuan Yew and his 47 Fables and Foibles of Failed Public Policies, I refer them to http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives September 2010 ‘ Malaysia according to Kuan Yew.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  158. mubarakchan Mar 25,2019 11:52 PM

    Tun,

    Because of your multifarious successes in many fields of achievements for so long and you have been humble all the time, unlike Lee Kuan Yew who went max to broadcast his fake achievements using the National Resources of tiny Singapore for a life-time, some ill-informed and lazy minded were not able to see the whole picture.

    There is now a big on-going debate on this subject.

    For example, how many Malaysians are aware of the CREATION OF THE MALAY MIDDLE-CLASS FROM ZERO BASE BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD 1981-2003 ? But this subject is only one of the many which may be grouped thus in line with Tun’s life-long dedication, contribution and vision for our Society.

    1. The Political Will and Vision of a true Political Leader. I can only name 3 other Prime Ministers namely the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn which fit the bill together with you.

    The historical record shows from your achievements.

    2. The creation of the Malay Middle Income Group of 6 million families from 1981-2003 which form the political and socio-economic ballast of present day Malaysia of peace, harmony and prosperity. This Group engages the Non-Malay Middle Income Group through purchase and sale of goods and services all over the country in wet markets and malls and miscellaneous activities.

    A Nation must have a wide ranging Middle Income Group which with a Government’s support and encouragement expands exponentially. This is the nub of a democratic system to provide for its future leadership and socio-economic well-being.

    WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ?

    3. All the concepts as launched by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad were correct but were ruined by the closest aides who were corrupt and crossed the red line in every instance of no return. I should know I was the first and the only one who did not cross the red line of no return. There was no scandal. So, no one has heard of me which suited me absolutely.

    ALL THE SCANDALS WERE CAUSED BY THE CORRUPT CLOSEST AIDES WHO CROSSED THE RED LINE OF NO RETURN ! When Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad thought he was talking to them on the 88th Floor, their minds were actually in the basement!

    4. The infra-structures like the N-S Highway, KLIA, Putrajaya, Twin Towers etc were created by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad without an Adviser unlike Lee Kuan Yew and the UN Economics expert, Dr Albert Winsemius, Adviser to the Singapore Government 1962-1984.

    What we see in Singapore today is due to Dr Winsemius. What we did not see from 1948-1989, was the Black Under Counter Trades in arms and other illicit trades which brought Singapore huge profits with the condonation of Uncle Sam via a secret Treaty with Lee Kuan Yew. The sort of thing Malaysia will never do. Lee Kuan Yew had blood on his hands.

    5. The huge advances in Higher Education and Medical Services were made during Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s 22 year Administration 1981-2003.

    6. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is not a dictator because throughout his public life he followed the best precepts of a well-trained and brilliant doctor with a very good memory and kept tabs on his subordinates by having a note book. A good doctor always follow up on his patients. He was called a dictator because he caught many of his lazy subordinates not performing their jobs.

    7. Another factor which was Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had already studied a subject well before he gave out orders to his subordinates who thought wrongly that he was authoritarian. It was the subordinates who were in the basement.

    8. In 2003, our beloved Malaysia’s total debts were about RM 300 billion when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired. By 2018, the total debts had risen to RM 1 TRILLION AND THE COUNTRY HAD NOTHING TO SHOW FOR THIS HUGE DEBT BUT AN EXPENSIVE RAIL LINE IN KUALA LUMPUR. What happened to the RM 700 Billion ? An international survey found that between 2002 to 2010 RM 1 Trillion were siphoned out of the country.

    9. The FTZ were robust and active during Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Administration 1981-2003. But between 2004-2018, there were no attempts to have any Policy which attracts or create new jobs for the Rakyat because so much time was spent having fun and games with the Rakyat’s precious money in all directions, UK, Australia, United States, Singapore, Turkey, etc.

    These were the significant achievements 1981-2003 of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is recognised as one of the greatest Statesmen of the Muslim World if not the World WITHOUT BLOOD ON HIS HANDS UNLIKE LEE KUAN YEW FROM HIS 2 CHILD FAMILY POLICY OF 1972-1984 AND HIS THAKSIN PURCHASE 2006 WHICH SPLIT FREE THAILAND INTO TWO CAUSING DEATHS AND INJURIES TO HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT THAI MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. You are right. Where got former dictator ? A DICTATOR NEVER RETIRES LIKE LEE KUAN YEW !

    As I left the house this morning at 9.30 a.m. my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree were still chirping and singing. I wondered what kept them in song for so long since 6.50 a.m. May be they feel free as a bird as the saying goes despite a Monday morning ! Another wonderful day of our beloved Malaysia with the naysayers the troublemakers and the political clowns still in bed after a night of revelry of empty talk ?

    The headlines were all sub-standard which were focused on political thugs bullying young students, or young political neophytes preening in the media or a mis-representation of a World War II Memorial arose because of a careless bungle, thus :-

    1. ” SINGAPOREANS LINKED TO TOXIC WASTE PROBE.”

    2. ” LEASE DECAY DOES NOT MEAN THAT HDB FLAT WILL HAVE $0 IN VALUE. HENG – SINGAPORE’S PM HEIR APPARENT.”

    3. ” MANY SLAM ‘MONUMENTAL MISTAKE’ ”

    4. ” THE DISGRACEFUL BEHAVIOUR OF PRESENT DAY MILLENNIALS.” My creation.

    My succinct comments on the above-mentioned headlines as follows :-

    1. This toxic crisis on the Sungei Kim Kim is not the first nor the last with sneaky Singaporeans who will take advantage of the lack of enforcement because of CORRUPTION.

    Whether these foul acts were caused by Singaporeans or not, these have occurred around the whole country during the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally Corrupt elites, 2004-2018. No one cared. No one went to jail.

    In the meantime, our rivers, mangrove swamps and lakes are got fouled up not only poisoning the clean waters, the vegetation, the live-stock of fish and the livelihood of the fishermen and fish and prawn farmers as well.

    From the Camerons to Sungei Kim Kim !

    Corruption knew no bounds. This is one important area for the New and Incorruptible Government to focus on enforcement to restore ALL TO NORMAL and safeguards our precious WATER IN THE PROCESS to aid whatever reservoirs in the States in times of need during the dry season like now. Prevention is better than cure.

    2. THIS IS GOBBLEDEGOOK TO ME ! No new white rabbits out of the proverbial hat. Hence, something undecipherable in an attempt to get out of a difficult situation. Singapore’s BLUFFOLOGY OR BS AT ITS WORST !

    3. If the State Minister of Tourism had not added his own words to garnish the Monument, no one would have noticed.

    On these War Memorials, I am in favour of erecting War Memorials for ALL, the fallen Malaysians, the British, the Dutch, the Portuguese and the Japanese.

    We must not be held hostage by HISTORY.

    We should make use of HISTORY TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S ADVANTAGE like in Switzerland where William Tell was created as a myth or like China’s temples destroyed during the Cultural Revolution of 1966 which were re-created with PLASTIC ! These countries never said HISTORY IS GOOD FOR TOURISM !

    First, I respect the feelings of those who had lost their loved ones through strifes or conflicts. I was a refugee once and was machine-gunned once and bombed twice and lost ALL in the process. Second, we cannot escape from HISTORY WHICH IS THE FINEST ARBITER OF THE TRUTH.

    With a good understanding of our present existence through HISTORY we not only respect and understand one another but creates UNITY as well. WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. WE ENJOY TOGETHER. SUFFER TOGETHER LIKE NOW ! No more.! No less !

    LET THE WHOLE WORLD VISIT MALAYSIA TO APPRECIATE OUR RICH AND COLOURFUL HISTORY ! No one should be left out ! There is NO SHAME IN THIS.

    4. Some Millennials do not use their frontal lobes to THINK ! Those we have great expectations turned out to be found wanting..

    A long time ago when I was very young, I learnt to my cost that when I spoke without thinking, my words were like bullets out of a gun. Once spoken, the words could not be retrieved to erase my embarrassment later. From this, I also learnt to say “SORRY” without hesitation and instead became a good listener.

    In my LIFE, I have met many who had VERBAL DIARRHOEA and the obstinacy not to say, “SORRY”. I even met a person who told me she never did anything wrong in her LIFE. It was obvious that such a person has no feelings for herself or others.

    Not only that, now we have politicians both male and female, who have a bee in their bonnet, so to speak.

    One female politician turned up in a mini-skirt and red boots at the august State Legislature. Another could not read beyond the first sentence of the Constitution so focused was she on babies, napkins and pacifiers in installing a nursery in the august Dewan Rakyat and instead of giving small donations to ALL charities, she gave to only ONE. The roof felled on her !

    Then, there was another YB who does not realise the exalted position she holds over and above ALL THE RAKYAT. Her emotions got the better of her and she rushed to stick a KNIFE into my friend’s Teflon back (whom she called a FORMER DICTATOR) down in OF ALL PLACES SINGAPORE, A PLACE WHICH NOW GRASPS AT ANY STRAW TO SURVIVE !

    TUN HAS ALREADY SAID THAT IF HE WAS A DICTATOR HE WOULD NOT HAVE RESIGNED IN 2003 AND PERMITTED HIS TWO SUCCESSORS TO RUN RIOT WITH THE NATION’S MONEY MONEY MONEY !

    The YB does not even realise that with her efforts together with the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great, not only did she brought down A SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES 2004-2018 but also created our beloved Malaysia to be one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Where are you Singapore ?

    All YBs MUST SEE THE WOOD FROM THE TREES ESPECIALLY IN MALAYSIAN POLITICS.

    Especially nowadays when all sorts of frivolous questions are brought up every day TO MISLEAD THE YOUNG AND INEXPERIENCED YBs ! To make them LOOK LIKE CLOWNS BY THE OPPOSITION. BEWARE OF THE OPPOSITION MEDIA AND JOURNALISTS WHO PROFIT BY MAKING FOOLS OF THE UNSUSPECTING YBs ! And turned them round and round to the laughter of ALL !

    As our good Tun had said that it is alright for all Ministers to take time to learn to control the ropes of POWER AS LONG AS THEY ARE HONEST!

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    Welcome home from a grand reception in Pakistan which befits a Statesman not only of the Muslim World but also the World.

    Our beloved Malaysia awaits your Leadership to bring the Nation and its Rakyat into NORMALCY.

    Within our beloved Malaysia, we feel good and secure with the peace and harmony around us which was only marred by the thuggery on young students protesting against kleptocracy by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites. The rule of the Laws must prevail. The police station was only across the road. No policemen was despatched ! Prevention is better than cure !

    I consider all these incidents as a test against the Political Will and the Efficiency of the New and Incorruptible Government which should have its nose on the ground and not through Third Parties.

    The only way the New and Incorruptible Government to gain kudos is to fix the general economy which has not been affected by the huge apparatus of the BN-Private Sector Nexus. And this is not easy as it was corrupt in the first instance.

    A good standby has always been the Construction Industry which went haywire in recent years through corruption and over-building which also affected the banks and their mortgages. Then, we have the present strict rules to purchase a home. At the appropriate time, this restriction should be lifted for a person to buy more than one property.

    The retail business has been shrinking in recent years due to the lack of consumers because so much money was STOLEN OUT OF THE SYSTEM IN A SMALL COUNTRY BY A SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES 2004-2018.

    However there is the light in the horizon which is the Ministry of Finance being able to keep a good set of books. AND ITS ABILITY TO COLLECT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE FROM THE THIEVES OF PUTRAJAYA ! Leave no stone unturned to collect back the loot ! The faster the better ! Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 3 strokes of the rotan.

    THE MALAYSIAN CROOKS HAVE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS STASHED OVERSEAS, MONEY WHICH WAS STOLEN AND DID NOT BELONG TO THEM !

    With the increasing financial turmoil in the World, the World’s Central Banks are now on tenterhooks and could now only react on an ad hoc basis. We must not forget that the Crash of 2008 is still unresolved. There is now talk of the Fed reducing interest rates with the knowledge that its balance sheet still has not attain a normal stance. Therefore, all natural resources will be valuable with this scenario if there is a market for them ! Water tops the list !

    There are so many financial exposures overseas created by the BN Government, it is time to retrieve all as quickly as possible and review our investments during this softening period of the World’s trades and markets. And further reduce our loans and liabilities wherever possible. Time is of the Essence !

    THE GLCs ARE THE BIGGEST CULPRITS IN THIS REGARD !

    Our beloved Malaysia is fortunate that the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite was thrown out of POWER on 9 May 2018.

    At least Malaysia is now one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Instead of being killed by the kleptocrats, Malaysia is now on an upward trajectory as led by the new and Incorruptible Government of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Unlike the collective political Leadership of Singapore which has to rely more and more on the late Lee Kuan Yew for morale support through the daily media propaganda. The only place in the World to do so – a collective political Leadership which is colourless and lacks oomph, relies heavily on its late Leader of yesteryear, Lee Kuan Yew. They should have brought back Goh Chok Tong !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem with the New and Incorruptible Government to lead us out of the Augean Stables to greater heights of endeavour !

  161. mubarakchan Mar 23,2019 12:30 PM

    Tun

    With the uncalled-for roughing up of young students by political thugs in 2019, let me present my true and personal view of one of the Great Statesmen of Malaysia, Tun Abdul Razak, the others being the Tunku, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Tun Abdul Razak was a friend of my family. He was at Raffles College, Singapore as a classmate of my elder sister. Their contemporaries were the Royal Professor Ungku Tan Sri Abdul Aziz, Tan Sri Taib Andak, Tan Sri Hamdan, Raja Tan Sri Mohar Badiozzaman, Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Keng Swee, Ms Kwa, Barker etc.

    I first met Tun Abdul Razak, President of the Olympic Council Malaysia in 1965 after having delivered a disused mining land of 10 acres at Subang which was turned into an International Standard Shooting Range in 2 weeks working from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. He requested me to open up the doors of the Selangor Shooting Association which was controlled by only 33 Hakkas into a sporting association for all.

    In 1966, I delivered his wish. The Association now has a membership of 2,000 with RM 2 million in its coffers and Malay and non-Malay shooting teams in all international meets. Malaysia won its Asian Games Gold in Shooting at Teheran in 1972.

    In 1968, Tun Abdul Razak recommended me to the Board of Trustees EPF. I retired from EPF in 1974.

    In 1968, he offered me the best State seat for a Chinese being the Selangor Kuala Kubu seat which goes with a seat in the Selangor State Exco. My advisers Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too and the UMNO Youths were strongly against I should stand. I took their advice. At the 1969 GE, the Alliance majority of 5,000 fizzled down to 450 votes ! A turning which I avoided and definitely lost.

    In 1971, Tun Abdul Razak fought very hard to appoint me as the youngest person to the Board of Directors, Bank Negara Malaysia. The chairperson was the famous Gabenor Tun Ismail Mohd. Ali. During this period, the Singapore Dollar was S$ 1.03 to RM 1.00 and we had gold in the BNM.

    In 1973, Tun Abdul Razak offered the post of Deputy Minister of Finance for the 1974 GE. As a wiser person I declined because I knew my friends would be Minister of Finance and Head of MCA.

    In 1972, through Tun Abdul Razak’s kindness and with the full knowledge of the socio-economic predicament of my Malay friends in their own country and economy that the Malays owned only 2% of the economy, the British 70% of the best assets and businesses and the Chinese 25% of the third rate with a handful of towkays, I was inspired to present my 1972 Concept to capture Sime Darby and launch the Malays into big business in the shortest time possible.

    Both Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah gave me their support. Together with others, Sime Darby was in Malaysian control by November 1975. Before this, the Malaysians ran out of funds.

    Without informing anyone, I met Mrs Lee Kuan Yew ( PAP Founder ) in January 1974. She denied any knowledge of her husband’s activities. We talked for 1 hour. After the end of the Vietnam War in April 1975, 2 Singaporean banks assisted to help the Malaysians over the hump.

    THE MALAYSIANS SPENT ONLY RM 23 MILLION TO GAIN CONTROL OF SIME DARBY. It is crystal clear that the Malays did NOT USE PUBLIC FUNDS BUT SINGAPORE’S ASSISTANCE IN THIS REGARD. The MCA was off the mark by calling me names ! Stupid.

    First, we must be grateful to both Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah for their vision and support for a good cause. Second, we must never forget that Singapore helped through 2 Singaporean banks which were rewarded handsomely.

    This could be recorded as the finest co-operation between Malaysia and Singapore to this very day AND UNDERLINED THE GOODWILL AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE GREAT STATESMAN TUN ABDUL RAZAK AND YBM TENGKU RAZALEIGH HAMZAH IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST TO EQUALIZE THE LOP-SIDED MALAYSIAN PLAYING FIELD AS AT 13 MAY 1969 !

    For my 1972 Concept that the Malays should buy British assets at fair market values to lift themselves from zero base and not Chinese assets, a MCA Leader called me “A MALAY BUM SUCKER’. Under this banner, he misled the whole of the MCA into business to counter Malay business expansion. With this song, he could remit S$ 100 million to his girl friend’s account from Singapore to Hong Kong in 1984 via my friend. He was eventually jailed and pretended to be poor by borrowing from billionaires !

    In 1992, I was thrown out by the Malaysian Sime Darby Executives whose jobs I created, my total emoluments before tax was RM 500,000 for 18 service as a Non-executive Director. Now the Executives wallop RM 500,000 a month as salaries ! Thereafter, Sime Darby went bankrupt TWICE in 1996 at RM 1.2 Billion and in 2010 at RM 2.10 Billion. The same Management carried on as though nothing had happened. No one was charged. No one was jailed.

    Tun Abdul Razak was a very intelligent and exceptional person. He was a great thinker and planner in the National Interest. Money was not in his vocabulary. His aides did not play him out and delivered accordingly. A fine example was Tan Sri Taib Andak who delivered FELDA amongst many others with success.

    Fortunately, our beloved Malaysia had FINE GENTLEMEN WHO LED THE NATION WITH HONOUR, SINCERITY, INTEGRITY AND DEDICATION LIKE THE TUNKU. TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSEEIN ONN AND OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD for 47 years in which the CREATION OF THE MIDDLE INCOME GROUP OF MALAYS WAS SIGNIFICANT, 1981-2003 !

    These Great Statesmen did not resort to thuggery to muzzle young students but THE RAKYAT’S LOVE FOR THEM TO MAINTAIN POWER.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We must all emulate the fine examples of our Great Statesmen like the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. NO THUGGERY FOR US, WE ARE MALAYSIANS !

    Tun

    The end of the week brings expectations of a good and restful weekend to come. With the break of Dawn this morning, my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree were up and about with their chirping and singing at 6.50 a.m. as soon as I unlatched the front door. Another Good Morning in the offing. The brightening pale blue sky was unmarked by not a single wisp of cloud as far as one could see. Another peaceful and harmonious day for our beloved Malaysia ?

    One singular headline caught my eye today, thus :-

    ” IMRAN KHAN HAILS DR M AS STATESMAN OF MUSLIM WORLD.”

    and the others were –

    ” DR MASZLEE EXPRESSES REGRET SCUFFLE NEAR UM, WANTS COPS TO PROBE.”

    and my own headline –

    ” POLLUTION, ILLICIT DESTRUCTION OF FORESTS AND DUMPING HAVE GROWN IN INTENSITY DURING 2004-2018 ”

    1. Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was much honoured by the Muslim World during his First Tenure as our Prime Minister throughout the Muslim World. His name rang a bell amongst the citizenry throughout the Third World whenever his name was mentioned to the chagrin of the West.

    How many are aware even in their own country our beloved Malaysia that single-handedly Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad created the 6 million middle-income Malay families from zero base in 22 years which now provide the support of the sales and services to the other 6 million non-Malay middle-income group ?

    This is the most remarkable achievement in any country in the World.

    The Malaysian Middle Income Group provides the bulwark for political stability, progress and prosperity.

    Similarly, India with her 350 million English speaking Indians maintains her rightful place in the World today from India to the United States with this group being the bulwark of a politically stable, progressive and prosperous India.

    Of course, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has achieved many firsts in his unique and humble career. He is definitely not a Double Dealing Leader like Lee Kuan Yew who pursued the Black Under Counter Trades in Arms and other illicit trades with the condonation of Uncle Sam – 1959-1989 during the Cold War – 1948-1989.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad definitely has no blood on his hands unlike Lee Kuan Yew who implemented 47 Failed Public Policies of which at least 2 caused him to have blood on his hands eg. i) 1972-1984. The Two Child Family Policy and ii) the Thaksin Purchase. 2006 which split Free Thailand into two bitter factions giving rise to deaths and injuries of innocent Thai men, women and children.

    Vide. http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives. September 2010. ‘Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’.

    Finally, all the concepts created by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad were correct but he was played out behind his back by his crooked closest aides who took advantage of his trust in them.

    I should know because I was the first who did not cross the red line of no return AND THERE WAS NO SCANDAL.

    Why were these closest aides crooked ?

    Simple. HOW COME ALL OF THEM ARE WORTH MORE THAN RM 100 MILLION RIGHT UP TO OVER RM 1 BILLION OWNING BANKS, STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS, ACRES IN BUKIT TUNKU ETC WHEN THEY ALL STARTED WITH EMPTY POCKETS AS PER THEIR LHDN RETURNS and appointed by our beloved Tun to manage Public owned entities ?

    It is only fit and proper that Pakistan’s finest Leader Imran Khan did what is right for the recognition of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as a STATESMAN NOT ONLY OF THE MUSLIM WORLD BUT THE WORLD ! A Malaysian of HONOUR, INTEGRITY, SINCERITY, MOTIVATION AND DEDICATION.

    2. Dr Maszlee is correct in his comment on the young students being roughened up by political gangsters.

    The Rule of Law should prevail.

    VIOLENCE MUST NEVER BE CONDONED IN THE POLITICAL ARENA IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BECAUSE DEMOCRACY AND OUR CONSTITUTION ARE WHAT OF THE MANY FACTORS WHICH HOLD THE FEDERATION TOGETHER.

    This minor altercation by the use of force as a means to an end should be punished on all the perpetrators concerned without fear or favour by the relevant authorities.

    Our beloved Malaysia has come very far in the area of Law and Order. And the authorities should apply the FULL FORCE OF THE LAW TO PREVENT FURTHER OUTBREAKS IN FUTURE. Prevention is better than cure. Less headaches too in the future. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court.

    3. Pollution in our beloved Malaysia has grown in intensity without any meaningful checks and enforcement during 2004-2018 under the Regime of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    Normal standards of governance felled all round the country.

    Pollution was everywhere. No one cared. The dumping of wastes was the same with the dumping of wastes into our beloved Malaysia even from the UK. This attracted carpet-baggers to set-up shop in Kuantan to further pollute our beloved Malaysia due to a BN Government which was too busy having fun and games at the Rakyat’s expense.

    Not only that, there were illicit destruction of our virgin forests, logging in all States even in Kelantan apparently with Singaporeans support, stealing of our riverine sand and rocks and more.

    The Ministry of Environment has its work cut out for the YB Minister – JUST TO RECTIFY, KEEP AND MAINTAIN STANDARDS ON A NORMAL AND EVEN ENVIRONMENTAL KEEL !

    How many Malaysians know that the Immigration Dept of Malaysia was not computerised until the turn of the 21st Century ?

    Here is the Truth. I caught the crooked Trustee of my father’s Trust by not residing in Malaysia for 6 months continuously. But at the last moment before his Trial, the witness, an Immigration Officer told me that every year in those non-computerised years of the 1990s, the gates of the Immigration Johor Baru checkpoints were thrown open with no checks so that the Singaporeans could rush back to Singapore on the days before the festivities. In this particular case, it was Christmas Eve 1997. On this, the crooked Trustee got away because the Immigration Officer could not swear in Court that there were 100% Immigration checks throughout 365 days in a year ! This was yesterday !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. I have always said that if the Prime Minister knows how to govern our beloved Malaysia it is easy, simple and straightforward. If not, there will be turmoil in the streets.

    You understood Tun, the Principle of the Pyramid of POWER whereby the goodies must flow down from the Apex to the proletariat at the bottom with their outstretched hands. But between 2004-2018, the long suffering Rakyat saw the goodies flowing against gravity upwards towards the Apex in INCREASING QUANTITIES without anything for them. This broke the camel’s back !

  163. mubarakchan Mar 21,2019 4:58 PM

    Tun

    It is good you make State visits to all our neighbours which is proper protocol and not waste precious time and Rakyat’s money on golf courses overseas. A Government like a person must behave and act NORMALLY and not used for fun and games at the Rakyat’s expense. This is sheer common sense.

    By accident, this morning my feather friends the bulbuls in the young banyan tree were aroused from their sound slumber by me as I opened the front gate at 6.50 a.m. I could not stop them from the chirping and singing which gathered in volume as the minutes ticked by. I was glad they were back in their nest. Another wonderful morning of beloved Malaysia !

    And the eye-catching headlines from the Opposition media this morning, thus :-

    1. ” WHY DAIM AND NOT GUAN ENG. ”

    2. ” GOVT CANNOT AFFORD TO BAIL OUT MAS ”

    3. ” HAPPINESS INDEX. MALAYSIA PLUNGES FROM 35 TO 80 ”

    1. No where in the World does a Government uses a Finance Minister to negotiate business deals on its behalf.

    In each Government, a Finance Minister is a person who is either a professional like a lawyer, economist, accountant or a reliable politician like YB Lim Guan Eng.

    A Finance Minister’s job in the eyes of a Democratic Government is strictly to administer the books of the Government and formulate fiscal Policy and to influence Monetary Policy of the Central Bank.

    A FINANCE MINISTER KEEPS STRICTLY TO THE MANAGEMENT OF ONLY MONEY IN ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD UNLIKE THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES WHEN THE PRIME MINISTERS ALSO WERE MINISTERS OF FINANCE. Where else but Malaysia ? Like this our beloved Malaysia now SUFFER FOR THE SINS OF OTHERS. Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. Put them in jail.

    IN THE CASE OF THE ECRL WITH A HUGE ELEMENT OF CROOKED MONEY PADDING ( It was so high. It is unbelievable ) OF ITS CONTRACT BY THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES, A NEGOTIATOR MUST BE WELL-VERSED IN ALL ASPECTS OF BUSINESS TO ACHIEVE A SATISFACTORY OBJECTIVE WHICH IS THE LOWEST PRICE POSSIBLE FOR THE PROJECT. No more. No less.

    YB Lim Guan Eng is very good as a good and reliable Politician to administer the country’s finances with a clean set of books. Who else is better ? None can beat him at the moment. Square pegs for square holes. Round pegs for round holes. It takes many experts to form a Government.

    2. ” GOVERNMENT CANNOT AFFORD TO BAIL OUT MAS ”

    MAS was used as a National Symbol by many who exploited it for reasons best known to themselves.

    When Air Asia became successful without a monopoly, MAS became irrelevant as a National Symbol because with a MONOPOLY from 1972 to 2002, MAS failed to make money.

    Billions of ringgits were spent to keep a air carrier which just flew in the skies to keep the FLAG flying. This has come to a stage that this act does not warrant more money to be spent when Air Asia could do a better job WITHOUT A MONOPOLY.

    And no Government in the World should be in business especially a losing business for so long losing money that the MAS tale has become a LEGEND. This badly reflects on the Nation’s Leadership as being corrupt, ineffective and self-serving. IT’S TIME FOR THE OGVERNMENT TO LET MAS GO FOR MANY REASONS !

    For example, which MAS Management did not enjoy themselves at the expense of the Government and its constituents, the Rakyat ?

    From the mid-1970s to the 1980s, how many Malaysians knew that huge blocs of seats were sold under counter during the go-go years of Malaysian overseas travel. I should know because I owned a travel agency once upon a time.

    Eventually, I met the MAS fellow with the round eyes and curly hair in a 4 persons lift in the luxury block of flats behind Harrods London along Sloane Street. It is the block with the fountain at the entrance. He looked up the lift’s ceiling to avoid my gaze. So did I who knew this fellow from Taiping !

    Then it was alleged another fellow who took-over the lady Director as soon as he took-over the MAS. He built a glass house between Harrods and Heathrow along Cromwell Road with MAS money of course. He knew nothing about business.

    Another tale of MAS. This fellow used the MAS like a private jet in a series of MAS flights of fancy and frenzy between KL and London on the pretext of buying fake modern art from a London female curator to adorn his MAS office.

    IT IS TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE THAT MAS IS NO LONGER RELEVANT TO BE BAILED OUT FOR THE SAKE OF UNDESERVING EXECUTIVES WHO USED THE MAS LIKE AN ATM AND ALSO TO SATISFY THEIR SEXUAL DESIRES OR PECADILLOS.

    3. ” HAPPINESS INDEX. MALAYSIA PLUNGES FROM 35 TO 80.”

    The good thing is that I was in Kuala Lumpur right in the heart of our beloved Malaysia and felt exceedingly happy throughout the period covered by the Happiness Index 2018-2019. I did not feel my happiness plunged from 35 down to 80 with the Pinoys. In fact, I felt my happiness knew no bounds. On the Happiness Index, this could be scored as within 10 !

    So what happened to such a UNNATURAL PLUNGE the only one recorded like this in the World. On paper, its like FROM SUBLIME TO THE RIDICULOUS ! Here are the factors thus :-

    1. The enemies of the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great were at work overtime. These enemies are domestic as well as external.

    2. With the fall of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites, the corrupt nexus between Government and the Private Sector was broken beyond repair. Many rice bowls were shattered like Humpty Dumpty.

    3. SINGAPORE MAINTAINS A HUGE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION FOR A ONE STREET TOWN. Its purpose is not only to keep tabs on important Malaysian and foreign dignitaries but also to influence ALL WORLD SURVEYS, ACADEMICS AND JOURNALISTS WITH SWALLOWS, DUCKS, ETC IN HER FAVOUR LIKE A COMMUNIST STATE. The sort of tricks which our Governments never thought about or will do on others – SNEAKY SPYING ON FRIENDS.

    4. WITHOUT ANY REGARD TO PROTECT OUR TRUE AND REAL STANDING IN THE WORLD OF SURVEYS, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS DOOMED TO BE EXPOSED TO ALL SORTS OF SHENANIGANS BY HER ENEMIES SOME OF WHOM HAD BEEN AT IT FOR CENTURIES !

    Just look at Brexit ! Britain was pushed into EU by unseen hands for political and monetary advantage. Now her population want to leave. The same unseen hands are making Britain almost impossible to exit. Hence, in our present World of nano seconds, unimaginable acts happen all the time. The gnomes of Zurich at work ?

    THE REASON WHY SOME PEOPLE WHO DISLIKE OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS BECAUSE HE CAN THINK LOGICALLY, HAS COMMON SENSE AND IS FORTHRIGHT IN HIS BELIEFS WHICH ARE JUST RIGHT AND WRONG. Black is black. White is white.

    Crooks do not like people who can think and have principles. Hence, Lee Kuan Yew could DOUBLE DEAL during our beloved Malaysia’s darkest era 2004-2018 when she was exploited by the Singaporeans through and through until 9 May 2018.

    The whole Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites went down the drain en masse.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem with International Surveys.

  164. mubarakchan Mar 20,2019 3:57 PM

    Tun

    Yesterday the Opposition media was as quiet as an empty morgue. Even my feather friends the bulbuls went AWOL. This morning they were back chirping and singing loudly at 6.55 a.m. Where else but Malaysia ?

    As a fallen UMNO Tan Sri once told me, ‘ Today is today. Yesterday was yesterday.’

    And as for the headlines, it is headlines galore thus :-

    1. ” NEVER AGAIN. PM VOWS TO CONSIGN KEPTOCRACY TO THE HISTORY BOOKS.”

    2. ” NEW COURT FOR CORRUPTION CASES ”

    3. ” NEW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR KEDAH ”

    4. ” ONE STATE’S MEAT CAN BE ANOTHER STATE’S POISON ”

    5. ” PROTECT OUR FORESTS LIQUID GOLD ”

    6. ” MEANDERING TOWARDS DISASTER ”

    7. ” ONLY THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG ”

    8. ” BANKS TOLD TO BE FLEXIBLE IN LENDING ”

    9. ” EPF MAY CEASE TO EXIST ”

    10.” WAN AZMI ENTERS E & O AGAIN ”

    11.” SINGAPORE, PARIS, HK WORLD’S MOST COSTLY CITIES ”

    12.” ELITE SCHOOLS TO RISE AGAIN ”

    What a wonderful array of headlines in our environment which is trying its level best to get back to NORMALCY.

    1. ” NEVER AGAIN…” After 46 years of Normal Governance by the BN Government, who would expect the Devil took the hindmost after 2003 ?

    With famished Singaporeans running wild in the Federation looking for low hanging fruits by the Avenue guided by the 4th Floor boys now grown men with beards via a hard core PAP cadre ensconced in the UMNO NSTP Chief Editor’s Chair with the Nation losing 1,000,000 barrels of Saddam Hussein’s oil according to the UN Report.

    Beginning from 2004 to 2018, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S LOSSES WERE ALL ONE WAY ON THE ROAD TO SINGAPORE eg. black 1MDB money, rocks, steel rails, precious landed assets ended up as 1/2 an office building, pay to deliver free water to Singapore, even eager eagles flew in to feast on the rotten carcass,

    Our beloved Malaysia even signed her own DEATH WARRANT the Malaysia/Malays Killer the TPPA/CPTPP. Lee Kuan Yew definitely had a good laugh with his hard core cadres ! So easy !

    This was saved by the brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the last minute on 9 May 2018. NEVER AGAIN !

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    2. ” NEW COURT FOR CORRUPTION CASES ”

    The faster the New Court is established the better. The crooks cannot be permitted to walk around on bail as though nothing had happened. This Court must let the full force of the Law on whoever was responsible for stealing the Rakyat’s money that CRIME DOES NOT PAY. A minimum deterrent sentence should be at least 10 years upwards.

    3 & 4 ” NEW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR KEDAH ”

    The new international airport actually serves the North right down to Tanjong Malim to the South and Kelantan and Trengganu to the East.

    THIS IS THE BEST NEWS ANNOUNCED BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT SO FAR whilst the previous announcements were steps in cleaning the Augean Stables.

    We must go back to basics.

    After the arrival of the British in 1779, Pulau Pinang was ceded and Kedah suppressed until recent times.

    A joint Kedah-Pulau Pinang Development Council should now be formed to facilitate faster, cheaper and bigger developments in the two States because they are now political fellow bed mates. The BN State Government did not use their brains after Tun Dr Lim Chong Yew in the 1970s..

    Now our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad takes up where the BN Government left over 10 years ago. Imagine those BN over-educated fellows did no thinking from the 1970s to the 21st Century- 2008 – 30 years ! Remarkable !

    Pulau Pinang elites should now think like a BOSS and not like in the Opposition.

    And discard the Lee Kuan Yew’s Model based on his Black Under Counter Arms Trades etc during the Cold War 1949-1989.

    By adopting the Lee Kuan Yew’s Model based on plenty of hard cash, the Pulau Pinang State Government had been running around for over 10 years trying to emulate the Lee Kuan Yew’s Model without success causing hill slides and flooding by pouring more concrete to the angst of its citizens.

    Without the tons of hard cash from illicit Black Trades, there is definitely no success for Pulau Pinang because all its projects must be based on LOANS which viability must eventually based on the surplus revenue garnered by the State which has NONE.

    IT IS REALISTIC AND PRACTICAL TO DISCARD LEE KUAN YEW’S MODEL FOR PULAU PINANG BECAUSE SINGAPORE’S REAL MIRACLE WAS NOT LEE KUAN YEW BUT THE HUGE AND PROFITABLE BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989. Hence, the present Pulau Pinang Development is a Non-Starter based on FALSE ASSUMPTIONS !.

    THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL IDEAS TO TURN PULAU PINANG INTO THE NUMERO UNO OF THE HOLIDAY RESORTS OF THE WORLD BRINGING BOUNTIFUL JOBS AND MORE REVENUE TO THE STATE. To follow Lee Kuan Yew’s Model is a dead-end.

    Because the brains have been numbed by Lee Kuan Yew’s apparent Miracle, no new ideas can come out of the present mind-set until they see the LIGHT which does not require much money, easy to do, clean and fast for the benefit of all the Rakyat.

    See the danger of brainwashing. on naïve minds or mind-sets.

    THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY FOR PULAU PINANG AND KEDAH TO GO – IT IS TO JOIN HANDS FOR THE MUTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF BOTH STATES AND BEYOND. The North will boom within 10 years when the Isthmus of Kra Canal will be announced and for the whole country too.

    Our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has the mind-set together with his Adviser(s) to turn the North into a bonanza for development. Another of his good Concepts but this time WITHOUT THE CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES !

    5, 6 & 7. ” ” PROTECT OUR FORESTS LIQUID GOLD.”

    Wrong ! It should be protect our forests liquid silver.

    Water is the liquid GOLD for now and the future. Our country has been treating the value of WATER too lightly. Our water pipes are old and leak everywhere due to corruption and lack of care and enforcement as though water is a gift. Too much water is wasted by the use of asbestos pipes.

    A 25 YEAR PLAN WHICH IS SACROSANCT TO POLITICAL MEDDLING SHOULD BE PUT IN PLACE AND MONITORED BY THE PM OFFICE, THE MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT & THE MINISTRY OF TRADE & INDUSTRY NOW.

    Our Rakyat should be taught not to waste water beginning from the schools upwards as it is essential for LIFE and our future progress. Soon many countries will require WATER from us.

    IN ANTICIPATION AS WELL AS OUR OWN NATIONAL INTEREST, OUR WATER RESOURCES SHOULD BE SAFEGUARDED, ENHANCED AND IMPROVED UPON BECAUSE EVERY LIQUID DROP IS LIQUID GOLD. And our revered Constitution amended thus in support :-

    ” NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE SOLD, TRANSPORTED OR EXPORTED OUTSIDE THE FEDERATION EXCEPT FOR THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE ” A new and huge business in the offing.

    8. ” BANKS TOLD TO BE FLEXIBLE IN LENDING ”

    Since the days of the distinguished BNM Gabenor Tun Ismail bin Mohd. Ali, the banks have too much influence outside their areas of business.

    It was alleged in The Star ‘Letter to the Editor’ 25 June 2018 that financial interests stunted the revision of the Bankruptcy Act 1967 which dare not do this in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australian. As a result there are now 2 Bankruptcy Acts – the old with the over 400,000 bankrupts including over 200,000 young Malay bankrupts locked in and the new which only began to function after October 2017.

    A ridiculous state of public affairs in which outside meddling of the Government created unfair Laws at the behest of the financial interests to punish instead of giving the Malay and Non-Malay young bankrupts (over 250,000) a second chance like Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA 2004-2018 ?

    9. ” EPF MAY CEASE TO EXIST ”

    Why does the New EPF Management indulge in racy and futuristic comments of NO CONSEQUENCE ?

    I would have thought the EPF Management in charge of Trust money should treat the MONEY under its care in an abstract, stoic, staid and conservative manner with all due respect.

    Please do not forget, the EPF is the Nation’s biggest Trust and began its LIFE as a Trust. I was there twice, 1968-1974 and 1984. Then, the EFP performed strictly as a Trust with its profits evaluated by the Treasury’s actuary before a dividend was declared. All surplus was invested in Treasury Bills.

    10. ” WAN AZMI ENTERS E & O AGAIN ”

    This is a major piece of good news from the business World.

    The most significant since Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s retirement in October 2003.

    Wan Azmi enjoyed doing business and has the right mind-set to do so. His investment is significant as he said, ” Cycles come. Cycles go.” In Malaysia a cycle lasts about 7-10 years. His timing is perfect. I reckon it will take-off in the second half of 2019.

    ALL THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO DO IS TO REMOVE RESTRICTION ON THE PURCHASE OF PROPERTY BY A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL ! It is not for the banks to say so. Because if they do not comply, no Government is going to take out the chestnuts in the fire for them !

    There is no way but to enlarge the pool of domestic buyers for properties in Malaysia at the RIGHT TIME. And CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME !

    And with the first stirrings of serious infra developments in the North and further better news on the state of the finances of the Government, I strongly believe Batman without Robin has hit the mark right on the target.

    Foreign (Singapore) investments will rush in. The CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS THE FAVOURITE OF ANY GOVERNMENT TO LEAD THE ECONOMY’S RECOVERY. We all like the Rakyat to make money.

    11. ” SINGAPORE PARIS HK THE WORLD’S MOST COSTLY CITIES ”

    Singapore has a problem. Paris and Hong Kong are cities in a much larger country. Singapore is a stand alone city-state which has no resources, human or natural. She lives by jacking up land values for revenue purposes. How high can Singapore go with a Leadership without colour or oomph ?

    12. ” ELITE SCHOOLS TO RISE AGAIN ”

    How many Malaysians recall that the Tunku’s Minister of Education changed the Education Policy around 1969 without Cabinet’s approval and disappeared into the Sarawak woods and could not be found ?

    From this point onwards, education was politicised and the standards began to drop especially in the University of Malaya from the 1970s onwards. With the education standards now more or less stabilised, it is an opportune time to focus again on elite schools which should be as many as possible throughout the Federation.

    India was wise not to meddle with the English language after her Independence in 1947. Her bulwark of strength is from her 350 million Indians. Where are you Lee Kuan Yew with 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50 ? India’s progress in the hi-tech field is from her strength in the English language not forgetting she has over 300 dialects to deal with. Kudos to her Leadership since 1947.

    Kudos to our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for his interest in a much forgotten important subject – the elite schools. IN FACT BETWEEN 2004-2018, THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES RLIMINATED ELITE SCHOOLS OF DECADES OLD STANDING. A country looks funny with only SMKs all round !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Your WAY is the RIGHT WAY WITHOUT THE CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES. SUCCESS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER BECAUSE MALAYSIA IS THE BEST FOR INVESTORS ALWAYS.

  165. mubarakchan Mar 18,2019 5:05 PM

    Tun

    I think I am the culprit who woke up the pair of resident bulbuls in the young banyan tree every morning, Mondays to Fridays. I noticed that as soon as I opened the front door, my feather friends began to chirp and a minute or two later burst in full song. What a Life to observe other lives living amongst us, human beings in our beloved Malaysia !

    And this morning, Monday, the Opposition media has run out of headlines after they failed to draw you out on the Johor MB’s visit to Batam which I know Singaporeans visit for other esoteric reasons.

    I am not deterred by the lack of catchy headlines. Therefore I create my own based on my recent comments on Lee Kuan Yew, a most fascinating man dominated a most fascinated subject of his own creation, ‘ HE CREATED HIMSELF !’

    ” A RESPECTED SURVEY COMPARED MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE FUTURES WHICH REVEALED SINGAPORE’S AS VERY BLEAK .’

    The Cold War 1948-1989 was the largesse for the main beneficiary Singapore. Lee Kuan Yew was the RIGHT PERSON, AT THE RIGHT TIME AND PLACE. This could be confirmed that even Richard Nixon paid a visit there and later commented,’ Big Man in a Small Place. ‘ – so effective was Lee Kuan Yew in the realm Bluffology or BS presentation.

    But we must not forget that throughout the Cold War and now and the future of Singapore, she has not a drop of water. Even the attempts by HYFLUX to do something special created an unholy mess. But this does not mean that Singapore which gets its water subsidised by poor Malaysia will profit by the 1962 Water Agreement.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    As the GDP showed, Singapore has reached a stage of development that even free water does not benefit her one iota due to the fact that her huge Wealth from the past, the Cold War (1948-1989) pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First in the 1990s.

    This is the nub of Singapore’s dilemma and problem today.

    A HUGE MOUNTAIN OF CASH FROM THE BLACK TRADES OF THE COLD WAR BALLOONED A SMALL POPULATION TO THE FIRST WORLD STATUS !

    And without the recurrent paper money revenue of the Cold War and no resources human and natural, how to keep her First World status in the air ? Especially with a FT population of 1.2 Million and a PR of 800,000 ! The real indigenous Singaporeans are only 3.2 Million with 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50. There is a complete absence of a genetic pool to produce geniuses. Hence, Singapore’s Leadership after 2 generations lacks colour and oomph !

    Singapore’s prominent Foreign Minister S. Rajaratnam an ex=Malaysian who looked like a Foreign Minister (if the cap fit wear it) wrote a 2 part article in the Singapore Business Times in the early 1980s comparing Singapore with Athens and Sparta. He came to the conclusion that city States like Sparta could not exist like Goa, Pondicherry, Gibraltar, Palembang, Hong Kong etc.

    At the height of Lee Kuan Yew’s Black Under Counter Arms Trades and all the other illicit trades at the end of the Cold War (1948-1989), Singapore was in the following with Lee Kuan Yew :-

    1. LEE KUAN YEW

    2. The Hard and Soft Arms Trades – This was the crème de la crème of all illicit trades. The fellow who owned the Soft Arms Factory, Singapore told me,’ A very good business because people fight all the time.’

    3. Money Laundering. – Financial centres like Singapore and Hong Kong were the nearest to all the South East Asian black trades.

    4. Toadying up to dictators. From the end of World War 2 to until recently, only Malaysia and now Indonesia were not under dictatorships and have sustainable democracies. It is logical to connect (2) and (3) in this respect.

    5. Sanctions breaking with China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East and Africa. Myanmar was a client since the 1960s.

    6. Collecting US War debris in Vietnam. A Eurasian Singaporean boasted about this. He could only have worked for Lee Kuan Yew.

    7. United States R & R, air base and bunkering facilities. United States Aid, Lend Lease and corporate investments pertaining to Lee Kuan Yew’s 1962 Secret Treaty with the United States.

    8. Smuggling. This revenue is unstable depending on the host governments. This sinecure activity made Lee Kuan Yew to push for the COMPLETE BREAKDOWN OF MALAYSIA’ TARIFF BARRIER VIA THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER TPPA/CPTPP ! Singapore’s Nirvana !

    The above-mentioned goodies for Singapore were at the height in 1989. But now in 2019 after the BRICS GRABBED SINGAPORE’S LUSH TRADES AND WITHOUT LEE KUAN YEW, the following remained but exposed to extreme competition, thanks to Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel, “Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights” which back fired on him, thus

    1. Money Laundering. This is now done all over the World. The latest being in Scandinavia.

    2. Smuggling. This belongs to the 20th Century. One reason why Lee Kuan Yew wants to block the Isthmus of Kra Canal and save Singapore Harbor.

    3. Sanctions breaking. An activity sometimes supervised by the United Nations unlike the Cold War (1948-1989) when only a phone call from Lee Kuan Yew to the White House could sort out any hiccups.

    4. Toadying up to dictators. Dictators are few and far between these days and are not that loaded as in the past.

    5. United States support. This has always been in Singapore. But with President Trump’s exclusive Policies, this can only mean less goodies for Singapore. Is the 1962 Secret Treaty or Agreement between Lee Kuan Yew and the US in jeopardy ?

    These 5 points still accrue to Singapore’s hidden revenues but its tiny. Unlike the BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES IN HARD AND SOFT ARMS FOR SINGAPORE DURING THE COLD WAR – 1948-1989 !

    With the loss of the Black Under Counter Trades in Arms to the BRICS and the exposure of Singapore’s hard-earned reserves in the international market place like any hoi-polloi without regards to her Sovereignty and National Interest which is egged along by the Gnomes of Zurich, THE FUTURRE OF SINGAPORE IS BLEAK, VERY BLEAK.

    And the hara-kiri of demographics which Lee Kuan Yew first initiated in 1972 and then tried to rectify with FTs in the 1990s to boost the GDP PUTS SINGAPORE’S FUTURE IN AN INESCAPABLE STRAIT JACKET OF NO RETURN !

    AS A LAST DITCH EFFORT TO LEAVE AN ENDURING LEGACY TO HIS INHERITORS, LEE KUAN YEW CONJURED UP 4 INITIATIVES TO FILL IN THE HUGE COLD WAR VOID CREATED BY THE BRICS eg. the ill-conceived Temasek, FTs imports, 2 casinos and the special Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP. ALL FAILED.

    Singapore now lives in a World OF HER OWN UNLIKE DURING THE COLD WAR (1948-1989) with her Policies of Lee Kuan Yew of the 20th Century. However, as I said before THERE ARE STILL 3 IDEAS TO SAVE THE SINGAPORE OF LEE KUAN YEW ;-

    1. SINGAPORE’S EXCELLENT GOVERNMENT (though bloated) AND CIVIL SERVICE.

    2. LEE KUAN YEW’S CREDITS AND GOOD WILL WITH THE SUPER POWERS OF THE WORLD FORGOTTEN. The Singaporean elites despite their love of displaying their cleverness, FORGOT ABOUT LEE KUAN YEW MOST IMPORTANT LEGACY FOR THEM AND SINGAPORE. THEY FORGOT FOR 25 YEARS TO UTILISE THIS IMPORTANT ASSET AND GOT DISTRACTED WITH 14 YEARS OF OBSESSION WITH MALAYSIA AFTER OUR GOOD TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD PREMIERSHIP 1981-2003. Time is of the essence. This is why I said Malaysia was a dangerous time and money wasting place for Singapore. In the end, Singapore got a couple of rocks, steel rails, landed assets and a black ringgit or two. Nothing worthwhile.

    The sycophantic Singaporean elites even rushed a publication.’ BIG IDEAS OF LEE KUAN YEW ‘ published in October 2014 which confirmed that the ex-President, the ex-Chief Justice, the ex-Head of Civil Service etc were all his employees in a place where there was no separation between the Executive, Judiciary and Administrative.

    NOW AFTER 9 MAY 2018, MALAYSIA IS ONE OF 4 IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. Where are you, Singapore ?

    Whichever way we toss the dice, Malaysia is always on top with the future of Singapore bleak, very bleak IF THE ELITES STILL CANNOT GET THE IDEAS OUT OF THE DEEP RECESSES OF THEIR BRAINS WHICH OUR GOOD TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD CALLS MIND-SET !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as everyone is NORMAL.

  166. mubarakchan Mar 17,2019 11:45 AM

    Tun

    How could the 2 Prime Ministers during the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and their equally corrupt elites between 2004-2018 be conned by Lee Kuan Yew and worshipped Singapore ACCORDING TO THE EVIDENCE WHICH I HAVE PRESENTED ?

    The Tunku, the Great Statesmand, Tun Abdul Razak, the Good Tun Hussein Onn and your goodself maintained the Sovereignty and National Interest of our beloved Malaysia unlike the two who felled to the clutches of Lee Kuan Yew.

    Here is what it looks like about the character of Lee Kuan Yew from his beginning to the end.

    1. 1940-1951. Lee Kuan Yew always wanted to be the Numero Uno from his Raffles College days. During the Japanese Occupation 1942-1945, whilst working for the Japanese Broadcast Service, he was having Law tuition with the unemployed lawyers of Singapore.

    After the War, he joined LSE first but soon he cheated to enter the lowest rung non-college Fitzwilliam House, University of Cambridge WITHOUT LATIN OR GREEK, DID NOT TAKE THE OPEN ENTRANCE EXAMINATION, AND WAS OVER AGE AT 23.

    His fellow undergraduates were war-weary soldiers. His class probably did not total more than 50 in war torn Britain. In normal times, a Law class numbers 200. The marking of examination papers is by the Bell Curve which is based not on how good a candidate is but on his position in relation to his class-mates. If Lee Kuan Yew was First Class, this does not mean he achieved 100% but the fact that he was only the best of his year of 50 undergraduates according to the Bell Method of marking.

    I should know because I was probably one of the very few if any Malayan who took the Open Examination with 100 marks in each 4 subjects required in 9 months and was recommended by the Chaplain to the Queen at Windsor Castle to his own College of which he was Master and also Vice-Chancellor of the University. At the important Bar Finals London, his wife was 3rd out of 200. He was last. Later my wife was 7th out of 700.

    LEE KUAN YEW CHEATED TO ENTER THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE AND WAS LAST AT THE IMPORTANT BAR FINALS LONDON.

    2. 1959-2015. Lee Kuan Yew’s 47 Fables and Foibles of Failed Public Policies are recorded in http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives, September 2010. ‘Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’

    (i) His creation of the Anti Cambridge Godless Neo Communist Political and Socio-economic System bolstered by his apparatchiks (meritocrats) and the West which was imposed on the citizens without their knowledge. From the beginning, this System was called by the West as ‘authoritarian capitalism’ or ‘benign dictatorship’ (how can a dictatorship be benign ?’ or ‘rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.’ India’s prominent personalities Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen and TJS George opposed Lee Kuan Yew’s Political System in the early 1970s and 1990s.

    (ii) Lee Kuan Yew’s disastrous 2 Child Family Policy of 1972-1984 which is the cause of only 900,000 male Chines aged 21-50 today. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011. Lee Kuan Yew had blood on his hands.

    (iii) The Thaksin Purchase at an over the top price which split Free Thailand into two bitter factions with deaths and injuries to hundreds of innocent Thai men, women and children. And brought on 2 military coup d’états. Lee Kuan Yew had blood on his hands.

    And 44 more Failed Policies of Lee Kuan Yew as recorded in http://www.chedet.cc.org. Archives September 2010.’Malaysia according to Kuan Yew.’

    LEE KUAN YEW HAD BLOOD ON HIS HANDS THROUGH HIS POLICIES.

    3. LEE KUAN YEW cheated by DOUBLE DEALING BEHIND THE BACKS OF THE SINGAPOREANS AND MALAYSIANS AS I HAVE COMMENTED IN MY RECENT COMMENTS.

    Therefore, with the solid evidence now before us HOW CAN THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE WORSHIP A CHINESE WHO WAS A CHEAT AND CONMAN ?

    The Chinese are known to be honourable and trustworthy as a people who respect and admire a person of good standing and education. They do not respect and worship crooks or conmen of which Lee Kuan Yew was one !

    And at the turn of the 21st Century, LEE KUAN YEW SAID.’ THIS TIME WHEN THERE ARE RIOTS IN KL. WE WILL GROW BARNACLES IN OUR HEARTS AND WILL NOT OPEN OUR DOORS TO THEM ! ‘ Think Malaysian Chinese on your god Lee Kuan Yew who is now proven to be a DOUBLE DEALER.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  167. mubarakchan Mar 17,2019 12:10 AM

    Tun

    Further in support of my comment on Lee Kuan Yew’s Double Dealing was the Tunku apt comment when he was asked about Lee Kuan Yew’s infamous crying episode on TV.

    The Tunku significantly commented on Lee Kuan Yew’s crying performance on TV thus, ‘ I DO NOT UNDERSTAND. HE WAS SO VERY HAPPY WHEN HE LEFT ME.’

  168. mubarakchan Mar 16,2019 7:24 PM

    Tun.

    The more I think about Lee Kuan Yew’s Double Dealing behind the backs of all including the Singaporeans and Malaysians, the more this tale seems like a Sherlock Holmes detective mystery.

    Remember the ominous year 1962 ? ALL EVENTS SEEMED TO MEET IN 1962 FOR LEE KUAN YEW !

    1962 – A SIGNIFICANT YEAR FOR LEE KUAN YEW.

    1. Lee Kuan Yew made a big fuss revealing that the CIA tried to bribe him.

    2. Malaya signed the one-sided Water Agreement with Singapore.

    3. Dr Albert Winsemius the UN Economics expert became Advisor to the Singapore Government from 1962-1984. WHO RECOMMENDED HIM ?

    AND WHY LEE KUAN YEW TREATED HIM SO BADLY GIVING HIM ONLY TWO MEDALS OF WHICH ONLY ONE WAS GOLD AND A PIECE OF PARCHMENT PAPER as though there was some other authority behind Dr Albert Winsemius ?

    IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE UNITED STATES BEHIND DR ALBERT WINSEMIUS TO MAKE SURE THE UNITED STATES INVESTMENTS IN SINGAPORE WERE HONESTLY HANDLED AND CLICKED !

    These facts explain the whole mystery of Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle coupled with the hired mercenaries, THE ISRAELIS AND MOSSAD to turn Singapore into a fortress for the West with LEE KUAN YEW AS ITS LEADER. ! Simple.

    4. The Tunku wanted Lee Kuan Yew to get rid of the Leftists by locking them up before the inauguration of Malaysia.

    The most senior Adviser for Counter Insurgency to the Federal Government Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too was despatched to meet Lee Kuan Yew to brief him on the increasing Leftist activity in the Colony. Lee Kuan Yew huddled with Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too and George Bogaars, Head of the Special Branch, Singapore for 2 full days. Tan Sri Dr Too told me Lee Kuan Yew did not know what to do. Shortly thereafter, Operation Coldstore to lock the Leftists was implemented..

    5. Behind the scenes in 1962, Lee Kuan Yew must have been in deep negotiations with the United States on the future of a Rightist Singapore Government under Lee Kuan Yew. The main topic must have been full support from the United States and the freedom to do the BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES IN ARMS AND ALL TRADES UNDER THIS UMBRELLA. Lee Kuan Yew firmed up this Secret Agreement with the United States before joining Malaysia in 1963.

    This SECRET AGREEMENT WITH THE US DEMORATS CONTROLLED UNITED STATES will be interesting because in 2006, Republican controlled United States SPURNED LEE KUAN YEW’S FREE TRADE SCHEME ( MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER TPPA/CPTPP ) ! But in 2009, Democrat controlled United States under Obama took Lee Kuan Yew’s Free Trade Scheme and called it his own TPPA/ CPTPP !

    And part of the SECRET AGREEMENT was the Clause to keep Leftists locked up for LIFE in the interests of the FREE WORLD ! This was then !

    6. Lee Kuan Yew in full confidence with the UNITED STATES SECRET AGREEMENT in his pocket apparently agreed with the Tunku by scribbling the terms of Separation on a piece of envelope. SO CONFIDENT WAS HE TO BE SUCCESSFUL AFTER THE SEPARATION. No Formal Agreement was alright !

    7. Whilst the Malaysians expected Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore to collapse after August 1965, Singapore advanced forwards to the contrary. Her only problem was unemployment. MONEY SINGAPORE HAD PLENTY FROM THE BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES OF ARMS TRADING ETC.

    8. IT SEEMS SINGAPORE’S 1962 SECRET AGREEMENT WITH THE UNITED STATES IS ETERNAL THIS RAISES THE QUESTION HOW SINGAPORE TREATS THE UNITED STATES FORMER ENEMIES WHO ARE NOW FRIENDS AND VICE VERSA ?

    9. THE 1962 SECRET TREATY OR AGREEMENT BETWEEN LEE KUAN YEW AND THE UNITED STATES EXPLAINS MANY THINGS LIKE LEE KUAN YEW’S ANTI-CAMBRIDGE GODLESS NEO-COMMUNIST SOCIO-ECONOMIC POLITICAL SYSTEM CONDONED BY THE UNITED STATES, THE THAKSIN PURCHASE WHICH SPLIT FREE THAILAND INTO TWO, TEMASEK ADVENTURES IN WALL STREET, AMERICAN INFLUENCE IN SINGAPORE TODAY, THE BLACK UNDER COUNTER ARMS TRADES OF THE COLD WAR (1948-1989)etc.

    But Singapore changed its demographics in recent years. In future, Singapore might be part of the Indian Commonwealth. How ?

    The Mystery of the Impossible Success of Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle is now beginning to unravel. A very interesting case of Double Dealing.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem for us Malaysians.

  169. mubarakchan Mar 16,2019 9:48 AM

    Tun

    I always woke up on Saturday’s mornings thinking of my task to ferry my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK. But soon I realised that Saturday was a holiday. This relieved my tension which has become instinctive. From the house, I could hear the loud plaintive and haunting cry of the urbanised golden oriole. The dry season is still with us.

    However as usual, ideas flood my mind as vestiges of my night’s slumber diminished concomitantly. And one idea is that it is simple to dismiss the Bluffology or BS of Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle. Here are the facts :-

    From 1948-1989 ( Cold War ), Singapore’s GDP reached a peak of a fizzy 7% with just a collection of tumble-down shop houses and the tallest building was the Cathay Building or the Asia Insurance Building. Coolies were employed to load or unload the ships docked at Keppel Harbour up to 1970s. From this point onwards, Singapore became the No. 1 port of the World.

    From 1990s onwards, Singapore achieved First World status from the Third.

    From 2000-2018, Singapore’s GDP crumbled to below 3% despite the launch of Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives being the ill-conceived Temasek, FTs importation to push the GDP like a string, 2 casinos in a crowded neighbourhood and the ultimate nirvana and Malaysia/Malays Killer, TPPA/CPTPP ! During this period, Singapore increased its stock of skyscrapers and its No.1 port and airport status.

    WHY DID LEE KUAN YEW CONJURE THESE 4 INITIATIVES IF THE SINGAPORE ECONOMY’S BOTTOM DID NOT FALL OUT DUE TO THE SERIOUS LOSS OF THE BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES TO THE BRICS AFTER 1989 ?

    With Singapore stripped naked of her secrets, we can now see that THE BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES OF THE COLD WAR (1948-1989) contributed at least 2-3% to the GDP in support of Singapore’s economy. This made her cash rich but the problem was unemployment which gap was filled by the glittering Singapore we see today eg. Jurong, skyscrapers, hotels etc.

    BUT THE GLARING MIS-MATCH IS THE FACT THAT BETWEEN 1948-1989, SINGAPORE COULD INCURR SURPLUSES IN ITS ACCOUNTS FROM JUST A COLLECTION OF RAMSHACKLE SHOP HOUSES AND AT LEAST UP TO THE 1970s, A STORIED COLONIAL ENTREPORT !

    On the ground in 1970, I was an investor in at least 2 Jurong industrial ventures which I observed that the Singapore Government was keen to keep its citizens ( Malays ) employed. Most of the Jurong industries did not make money. And other companies, office buildings, hotels and condos do not give huge revenues. Tourism and hotels provided further jobs for the populace.

    THEREFORE, IT IS CLEAR VERY CLEAR THAT WHEN SINGAPORE JOINED MALAYSIA, LEE KUAN YEW HAD TWO OPTIONS IN MIND.

    1. Remember Lee Kuan Yew conjured the ‘CIA attempt to bribe him’ fracas.

    WHO KNOWS WHETHER THIS WAS TRUE OR NOT ? THE STORY CAME FROM HIM. THE UNCLE SAM’S BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES DEAL WAS MADE IN 1962 BECAUSE OF THE EXPECTED CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT FROM BRITISH TO LEE KUAN YEW IN A KEY LOCATION FOR UNCLE SAM IN ASIA to battle China. Hence, his life-time of cockiness because of this US support. Like Singapore now ?

    2. Because of the Tunku’s insistence via the Adviser on Counter-Insurgency to the Federal Government, Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too, Lee Kuan Yew locked up all the Leftist in jail via Operation Coldstore in 1962. On this, Tan Sri Dr Too told me that Lee Kuan Yew did not know what to do. Therefore, Lee Kuan Yew did not sort out his moves yet. From this point, he was in full POWER to rule by chance which solved one of his dilemmas. How to deal with the Leftists in his Government ! Without them, his Government was Rightist !

    3. How to wriggle out of this delicate and sensitive position when all and sundry who expect Singapore to join the Federation ?

    4. THE ANSWER WAS TO JOIN THE FEDERATION OF MALAYSIA AND MAKE THINGS DIFFICULT FOR THE MALAYS IN ALL SORTS OF WAYS TO FORCE A BREAK SO THAT SINGAPORE BECOMES INDEPENDENT WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES. At the material time 1963-1965, I followed all Lee Kuan Yew’s shenanigans in the Dewan Rakyat and the 1964 GE rallies in Kuala Lumpur. He certainly made things difficult for the Malays through his speeches.

    5. THIS DOUBLE DEALING BY LEE KUAN YEW TO ACHIEVE HIS OBJECTIVE IS CONFIRMED BY THE FACT THAT THIS DARING MOVE BY HIM COULD HAVE THE BLESSING OF UNCLE SAM AND ALSO VIA DIPLOMATIC MOVES BY THE BRITISH ON THE TUNKU. Do not forget these folks are Anglo-Saxons through and through.

    6. And http://www.citizenonline.com ‘The Albatross Files’ confirms that Lee Kuan Yew threatened the journalists not to show him smiling but crying on TV !

    THE LEE KUAN YEW DOUBLE DEALING STORY COULD ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH THE POWER OF THE UNITED STATES AT THE HEIGHT OF THE COLD WAR (1948-1989)

    LEE KUAN YEW WAS A CREATION OF THE COLD WAR. THE RIGHT MAN IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. 1965-1989.

    Now, the collective Singaporean Leadership lacks colour and oomph to fill the BIG SHOES OF LEE KUAN YEW. How ? Bully our beloved Malaysia again ?

    ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY ! No Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP for us. We are proud, strong and united Malaysians, not Singaporeans.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. At that time the following saying was not invented yet !

    THE AMERICANS EASILY FORGET, THE BRITISH TRY NOT TO FORGET. THE FRENCH NEVER FORGET. THE CHINESE NEVER NEVER NEVER FORGET. THE MALAYSIANS FORGIVE AND FORGET. Where is the US support for Singapore now ?

    Malaysians have been told by Singapore over and over again that Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle were all those skyscrapers, Changi reclamation, Jurong etc which we can see. But the TRUTH is Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle came from the BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES OF THE COLD WAR (1948-1989) which were :-

    1. The hard and soft arms trades. My friend who manufactured soft arms in Singapore appointed a Libyan agent who could retire to Monte Carlo after 5 years !

    2. Smuggling. Some people thought Singapore’s wealth cam mainly from smuggling in South East Asia. The returns do not jive with the wealth Singapore accumulated which pushed her from the Third World to the First WITHOUT ANY HUMAN EFFORT. It was too easy for a sleepy colonial port with less than 2 million inhabitants to do.

    SO IT MUST BE SOMETHING SPECIAL LIKE THE SOLE RIGHT TO DO THE ARMS TRADE CONDONED BY UNCLE SAM DURING THE COLD WAR (1948-1989). Lee Kuan Yew served Uncle Sam’s purpose and interest during the Cold War but not quite thereafter.

    3. Toadying up to dictators. This is all over the media.

    4. Money laundering. Black money in South East Asia goes to Hong Kong or Singapore. The choice is yours.

    5. Free Vietnam War debris. One Singaporean Eurasian boasted about this in the media. He could only have done it for Lee Kuan Yew !

    6. Sanctions breaking. China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East, Africa with Uncle Sam’s two eyes closed.

    7. US R & R, bunkering, air base, corporate investments etc.

    In 1966, Lee Kuan Yew said, ‘ SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE TO TRADE WITH THE DEVIL ‘

    With the World’s Black Under Counter Trades during the Cold War (1948-1989), a very small population of 2 Million still in its colonial cocoon ruled by a honest authoritarian Government, it was a cinch to push Third World Singapore to the First. WE DO NOT NEED A SINGAPOREAN GENIUS OR ROCKET SCIENTIST TO DO THIS !

    THEREFORE FROM THE ABOVE EVIDENCE, THE SINGAPOREAN LINE THAT GLCs MAKE MONEY AS PART OF LEE KUAN YEW’s MIRACLE IS ALL BLUFFOLOGY OR BS. This was brainwashing at its best which the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government swallowed hook, line and sinker !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Malaysia will never do trades which harm others. NEVER !

    I looked towards the far horizon where the sun rose this morning. The distant sky was a pale blood red like the flesh of an Italian orange.

    I told my grand-daughter that today will be hot and dry. This was what my mother told me when I was young. And my feather friends the bulbuls were chirping and singing in the young banyan tree at the front gate. They have been in residence for a few months without feeling of being threatened. This is good for the birds in the neighbourhood. Hopefully more birds will arrive to take up residence.

    And the astounding headline appeared as the NST Leader Editorial this morning thus :-

    ” FOOD AND WATER : BEING PREPARED. TIME FOR KHAZANAH TO USE SOVEREIGN WEALTH TO DEVELOP THESE TWO STRATEGIC INDUSTRIES. ”

    This headline is off the mark altogether. But the substance of the article supporting the headline provided all the essential statistics in support of the food industry and water.

    First, the Khazanah which was established sometime in 1992 had a different purpose from that of 2004-2018. Then the objective was esoteric and confined to a narrow field of investments to serve the Rakyat interests.

    Second, from 2004-2018, Khazanah became a holding company with the sole purpose of MAKING MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT as it was expounded by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    How to make money for the Rakyat ?

    The Lee Kuan Yew’s GLC Model was copied wholesale and businesses were conducted with no restraint. Letters of comfort and liabilities snowballed. Losses were hidden in all sorts of nooks and corners. This resulted in the exposure of RM 6.4 Billion of losses and impairments recently. This was the proper format and accounting method to begin on a clean slate for the new Management.

    THE GLCs FROM 2004 – 2018 WERE THE CONDUIT TO BY-PASS THE ANNUAL BUDGET OF THE GOVERNMENT. This could be one form of mis-governance with sinister intent to create the total country debt of RM 1 Trillion.

    The main body of Khazanah’s investments at present are the GLCs which brought about the losses of RM 6.4 Billion losses.

    There is no reason whatsoever for embattled Khazanah to invest in food industries and water, both of which are undesirable investments because in the first instance, Khazanah is not a Sovereign Fund per se and in the second instance, food industries and water do not give profitable returns.

    Common sense dictates.

    If Khazanah is involved in the food industries, how can the Government keep the prices of food low according to its political agenda ?

    Water is a utilitarian commodity in a developing country. Only in Singapore, water becomes a big issue. NO WHERE ELSE IN THE DEVELOPED WORLD IS WATER PUT ON A PEDESTAL TO BE WORSHIPPED LIKE IN SINGAPORE !

    AND IS THE NSTP AWARE OF THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF SINGAPORE’S HIGH-FLYIMG HYLUX WITH ITS S$ 2.4 BILLION DEBTS ?

    Third, KHAZANAH SHOULD DISCARD ALL THE GLCs WHICH ARE IN CONFLICT AGAINST THE BUSINESSES IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR BECAUSE WE ARE NOT COMMUNISTS.

    Khazanah is not a Sovereign Fund which name was created by the gnomes of Zurich to butter-up Lee Kuan Yew before the Crash of October 2008. SINGAPORE LOST US$ 108 BILLION ( RM 324 BILLION ) AS A RESULT. The gnomes of Zurich disappeared when Singapore lost this money.

    THERE ARE ONLY 3 REAL SOVEREING FUNDS IN THE WORLD. THE CANADA HERITAGE FUND WAS THE FIRST (1972). THEN NORWAY AND KUWAIT FOLLOWED. All these funds have the purpose of saving the future generations due to the depletion of their natural resources being oil and timber.

    FROM 2004-2018, MALAYSIA’S KHAZANAH WAS A FAKE SOVEREIGN FUND CALLED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES AS SUCH. Apart from utilising the vast financial resources of this GLC Empire illegally, these also served the purpose of giving the crones a place in the Sun at the Rakyat’s expense under the guise of making money for the Rakyat. These cronies had a gala time enjoying themselves at the Rakyat’s expense.

    NO TRUE DEMOCRACY AND ITS GOVERNMENT MAKES MONEY FOR THE PEOPLE. This is Lee Kuan Yew’s BLUFFOLOGY OR BS ! How can those in POWER USE THIS POWER TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE PEOPLE ! Think !

    THE PROPER DEMOCRATIC WAY IS FOR THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO GIVE THE PEOPLE THE OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE MONEY WHICH IS TAXABLE. THIS REVENUE IS THEN UTILISED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO DEVELOP THE INFRAS FURTHER OR PROVIDE BETTER SOCIO-ECONOMIC BENEFITS

    ANY DEVIATION OF KHAZANAH’S 1992 DECLARED AIMS BY THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITES IS CORRUPTION AND SELF-SERVING DURING 2004-2018.

    To think that the Khazanah is the right vehicle to deal with food shortages and water is like barking up the wrong tree.

    Khazanah should revert back to its original purpose and SELL OFF ALL THE GLCs because a democratically elected Government has NO RIGHT TO BE IN BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT AND WORK IN DIRECT CONFLICT WITH ITS OWN CONSTITUENTS IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR – definitely not in the food or water industries. SURE DIE. Once not enough but TWICE !

    IF A PERSON WANTS TO BE A POLITICIAN WITH POWER STICK TO IT BUT DO NOT ENGAGE IN BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY AS WELL WITH THE POWER. This is not DEMOCRATIC but CROOKED.

    Pour le vouz francais Messieurs et Mademoiselles. LET US NOT GET OUR DEMOCRATIC THINKING MESSED UP FOR THE SAKE OF LEE KUAN YEW ! It is not worth it.

    We are Malaysians not Singaporeans ! No GLCs for us. Only authoritarian States Russia, China and Singapore have them. Their GLCs are so corrupt that China is looking for 100 Chinese on the run overseas with the GLC loot amounting to billions of US Dollars !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Is this NSTP Headline concerning Khazanah, MISCHIEVOUS, FAKE OR MISLEADING ? The main body of the Editorial does not support the headline ! WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ?

    My conscience has caught up with me.

    I have been too serious with my comments. As my elder brother said many years ago, ” You are too financial.’

    Besides, my Singaporean handlers in the huge Ministry of Information, Singapore must be tired of all my old and worn out tales of Lee Kuan Yew’s fables and foibles, 47 of them.

    I have decided to regale all with a few real life jokes from the past being from your 22 year Administration.1981-2003, thus :-

    1. One night at 2 a.m. my friend in Geneva rang me up. I asked, ‘ What is the excitement, David ? He replied ( I could smell the fine wines he had ) ‘ I am having dinner with a young tycoon from Malaysia who claim to be the Malaysian Onassis. His Government gave him billions of ringgits to build an armada to soot down Lee Kuan Yew’s gunboats.’ I replied, ‘ What’s so special about this ?’ David blurted away, ‘ He claims to be Malaysia’s Best Entrepreneur in the Entrepreneurs Club.’ Out of curiosity, I asked, ‘ Is this fellow has a white topi on ?’ ” Yes ! ‘ was his reply. In his heady excitement, David blurted ‘ His companion is something special and owner of a Singaporean art gallery too !’ I was amused on the one hand but sad on the other with the knowledge that the Rakyat’s money was not well-spent ! It’s a small world.

    2. Without courtesy or pleasantries, this commanding fellow who knew nothing about newspapers editing was seated across me at the NSTP Headquarters as its Chief Editor. I was thirsty after I waited one full hour to meet this fellow at his command. He dismissed me in just 5 minutes thus, ‘ You do not vote against Tamarind at Mycom’s meeting.’ I was dismissed abruptly. I sa9d nothing in reply. In my mind, I was curious what this fellow was up to. He is now lying low at his hill-top home taking a busman’s holiday owning a listed company with his initials !

    And who was Tamarind ?

    I was the controlling share-holder of Mycom. But I was squeezed out by this gang of lawyers who got caught in Hitachi when the market crashed in 1985, They were related to the No 2 in charge of Security. I was interested to restructure them. But they were interested to roll me over in their anxiety to get out of an illegal position being lawyers in business with a huge debt – RM 4 Mllion. They were anxious that with my minority stake I could upset their apple cart being the injection of a insurance company in distress by the new player after they played me out. As I was always fully informed, I voted for this venture with both hands because I knew these lawyers would be sued the following day by the gangster who owned it. Indeed, it happened. Eventually, I disentangled myself from this caper.

    My consultant advised me to report them to the Disciplinary Committee of the Bar Council which I never did. I do not believe in going to Courts in business besides they are well-connected. By taking a logical stance, I could reap rich rewards in the years to come. Such is Life. Patience, not emotions carried the day !

    3. ” Ssh ! Ssh ! ” The YB cautioned me to speak more softly as we sat in the cool verandah of this palatial home owned by one of the mightiest in the land. The YB wanted me to restructure his listed company ruined by himself and to meet his important patron. Little did he knew that I knew this powerful person since he was 21. I said nothing throughout.

    4. ” Sch ! Sch ” ” This Tan Sri cautioned me to speak softly. But in this instance we were in an air-conditioned FWD in the driveway of the Prime Minister’s Office Putrajaya. The Tan Sri met the Prime Minister after he beckoned me to wait in his car. I thought this was funny to the extreme that the presence of my friends struck such care in them. I said nothing to the Tan Sri.

    5. ” This is the unkindest cut of all. ” so said this YB after he reneged from purchasing 10% of my Mycom shareholding due to the crash of 1987 ! He accused me of libelling and slandering him on the golf course. How could I ? I was hi-jacked by the Minister of Finance in 1965 to restructure the Selangor Shooting Association from the golf course and never played golf since.

    6. This joke happened in 1966. I had 75% shares in support of my take-over of this listed company in my hands. One day in the midst of the take-over, the phone rang and the voice being the private secretary to an important Minister said, ” I was asked by this Youth Chief to tell you to be careful and not rough in your take-over of this listed company or your days with the Minister will be over ” I knew the score which was the birth of an important institution that year. I replied, ” Please tell So and So that I am in business to do business. I am not in business to harm anyone. Tell him not to worry !” This latter belief I kept to this day. From that day onwards, the three of us became friends. But the biggest loan I got was only RM 23,000. Such is Life with a wry smile !

    7. I consider this the greatest joke of all. I was scolded like a small boy for no reason at all by an assortment of the ennobled personalities in the land. The fact was I knew more about them than they about me in our compartmentalised society. This made Life interesting for me. Discipline and patience are good virtues to sustain a person in Malaysian business Life.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem in this Land full of colourful personalities, big and small.

    Every morning is a good morning in our beloved Malaysia under the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great.

    My mornings these days are even made better by the pair of chirping and singing bulbuls in the young banyan tree on my door-step accompanied by the plaintive and haunting cry of the urbanised golden oriole perched in a high tree-top. These wonderful mornings made my day. What I missed were the tick-tock sounds of the night jar at night which sent me to a deep slumber as a boy. This seemed to have gone forever from the centre of Kuala Lumpur. The price of progress ?

    The headlines which make my World goes round, thus :-

    1. ” PENANG FACTORIES CUT JOBS. ”

    2. ” SELL OR GET A PARTNER FOR MALAYSIA AIRLINES ”

    3. ” FOREIGNERS CAUSING TB A MYTH ”

    4. ” TYRE FACTORY OWNER TO BE CHARGED FOR CHEMICAL DUMPING TODAY. ”

    1. The present Pulau Pinang model for socio-economic development is out-of-place because it is apparently based on the Singapore Model which only worked with the huge influx of money from its Black Under Counter Arms Trade etc of the Cold War (1948-1989). Hence the claim that Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle came from all those glittering skyscrapers, sea reclamation etc which we now see, is FALSE.

    All the infrastructures we see today in Singapore came from the advice of the UN Economics Expert Dr Albert Winsemius, the Adviser to the Singapore Government from 1962-1984. For political reasons , his name and his advice were suppressed until only in 2017, a small lane was named in his honour.

    Hence, the Pulau Pinang Model is based on false assumptions and bound to fail because Singapore’s real success did not come from all those glittering structures we see today eg. Changi reclamation, etc.

    A New and Innovative Model is a must for Pulau Pinang which has been beating around the bush of socio-economics for at least 10 years !

    2. MAS lost its National Status when Air Asia was successfully established without a Monopoly.

    The problem of MAS to this day is the chronic mismanagement arising from a heavy political overlay which killed the goose which laid the golden egg.

    MAS was probably the first GLC owned by the Malaysian Government. MAS should have made money from day one of its separation from MSA. It did not.

    By the 1980s, I bumped into that MAS fellow with the round eyes and curly hair in the lift of a luxury flat behind Harrods, London. He pretended not to see me by looking at the ceiling of the 4 persons lift. So did I. For those interested, this luxury block of flats is the one with the fountain at the entrance along Sloan Street, London.

    Besides, there was another fellow who not only took-over the MAS but also its lady director as well. He built a special glass house using MAS money along Cromwell Road, London between Heathrow and Harrods. He has got style in his own manner using MAS money.

    To top these true tales of MAS, there was another fellow who adorned the MAS office with fake Modern Art bought with MAS money in a frenzy of travelling between KL and London on MAS planes, of course !. There was another GLC where the fellow bought not only the fake art but the curator as well in Singapore, of course !

    If MAS was managed like this in the past, IT IS BETTER TO ” SELL OR GET A PARTNER FOR MAS.” as the pundit said.

    MAS is no longer a National Airline with the successful arrival of Air Asia. IIH is another candidate for the Rakyat to recover their money who cannot rely on fakes to make money for them.

    3. Kudos to the Director of the Institute of Respiratory Diseases for highlighting the dangers of TB amongst the populace.

    TB is not the only danger but also malaria, dengue and other tropical disease from Africa. The Minister of Health should be on guard in this new World of fast and unrestricted travel throughout the World.

    TB and Malaria are dangerous because sometimes it is resistant to the drugs commonly used.

    I am not aware of the existence of an Institute of Tropical Epidemiology in Malaysia. With the New and Incorruptible Government, modern Tropical Medical Advances should be right up to the mark for our Malaysia and her peoples. Prevention is better than cure.

    4. Kudos to the newly married Minister who was at the toxic scene in Johor soon after the tragic event. Kudos to the State officials and the relevant authorities as well.

    Catch the culprits. Charge them in Court. 3 strokes of the rotan.

    This tragedy affecting innocent men, women and children should be given the full effect of the Laws.

    From 2004-2018, 14 years of all-out Corruption by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites have brought down the standards, ethics etc of years of hard-work down to zero base. We can now only go up as a result.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    To this very day, I do not understand why the Malaysian Chinese in their best logic and senses keep away from commenting on the fables and foibles of Lee Kuan Yew especially the Chinese Media.

    Without knowing the TRUTH, the Malaysian Chinese cannot progress forward but always held back by fear whatever this fear means.

    One thing I know for sure is that their fear of antagonising him is because of their interests in Singapore whether in the form of human or material related to them in Singapore.

    Stranger still, no a single Malaysian Chinese except for myself dare not let out a single squeak of their view of him.

    But there was one who told me the TRUTH a long time ago. He was the most Senior Adviser on Counter-insurgency to the Federal Government, Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too who was a Raffles College mate of Lee Kuan Yew. I asked him in the 1960s what he thought of Lee Kuan Yew. He replied, ‘ HE IS A THUG !’

    I first met a Singaporean, our Malay driver in December 1941. As a boy, I wandered into his quarters at lunch time. I noticed he was cooking a white tuber which emanated a strong smell, for his lunch – ubi kayu or tapioca. It was not rice.

    In 1948, my elder sister, her aunt and myself were in a jam-packed bus travelling along South Bridge Road, Singapore. A Chinese vernacular school boy dressed in a white uniform with epaulettes stood up and gave his seat to my aunt. This impressed me to this day.

    My awareness was further aroused when my elder brother married Lee Kuan Yew’s only sister Monica in October 1951 in Singapore. I did not attend as I was preparing for an important examination.

    My mother returned with tales of the Lee Family house at 38, Oxley Road was not lived in . She was upset when she was pushed aside to the back by Lee Kuan Yew at the wedding reception at Raffles Hotel even though she should have been at the head of the queue instead of the up-start Lee Kuan Yew. From this point onwards, the Lee Family overwhelmed my brother even though they were quite ordinary personalities like my brother.

    By 1954, I met the Singaporeans who were all parachuted into the university and my very first Malay friends. I did not mind the Singaporeans being brash and flashy. What I did not like was they were lobbying every year to be head of the CUMA even though in the minority. In my final year, I organised and threw the whole lot of Singaporeans out and could maintained control as long as I was in the UK.. After my time, the CUMA had always been controlled by the Singaporeans to influence unsuspecting Malaysians there. I also observed that the PAP cadres were active in Malays Hall Bryanston Square, London in 1957 by fraternising with the young Malays in KMUK. This was yesterday.

    In 1956, I met Lee Kuan Yew for the first and only time at a dinner reception at the Long Bar of the University Arms Hotel. He was in a slick tuxedo and I was in a crumpled Burton suit. He glared at me and asked,’ Are you George’s brother ?’ I replied ‘Yes !’ That was the first and last of a meeting for a lifetime. Thereafter I absented myself from two family wedding dinners and one important Singapore inaugural exhibition sponsored by me.

    As a Malaysian, a Constitutional Conformist, not a Communalist, I just could not accept the fables and foibles of Lee Kuan Yew concerning Malaysia.

    I have nothing personal against him and never said anything on this.

    It is his Policies towards Malaysia which bugged me.

    POLICIES WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT TO HIS GREATER ADVANTAGE AND SINGAPORE’S. His 47 Failed Public Policies showed he did not benefit form his highest academic achievement at Cambridge, The sad thing is Lee Kuan Yew never learnt HOW TO THINK at Cambridge and after he left its portals. From then on, his thoughts and actions were just like any other ordinary person – forever trying to be the NUMERO UNO !

    Yet MALAYSIA IS NOW ONE OF FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA !

    OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WHO USED HIS BRAIN ALL THE TIME AND THINK OF DOING THE RIGHT THINGS. As Tun said ” It’s the mind-set ”

    In the case of Tun, his concepts were never at fault but in every case without exception, he was let down by his CROOKED closest aides who crossed the red line. I can say this because I was the first and did not cross the red line of no return – there was no scandal.

    Unlike our Tun, Lee Kuan Yew doggedly pursued his own beliefs which never left the sanctum of the great university whERE he studied but never learnt how to think ! With such a background, Lee Kuan Yew went all the way for Singapore and his inheritors to their present position eg. NO WATER. NO GOLD. NO NEW RABBITS OUT OF THE PROVERBIAL HAT.

    All these confirmed by the apparent sharp retorts concerning minor issues. This is just a cover-up of insecurity and the lack of confidence without Lee Kuan Yew.

    My sister who was a college mate of Lee Kuan Yew confirmed that his character had always been brash and wanted to be the NUMERO UNO always. I would attribute this to his atheist’s beliefs, a common trait amongst most Malaysian Chinese today.

    As our Tun has stressed that it is important to have a proper mind-set. Lee Kuan Yew had shown that without a proper mind-set, great mistakes could be made by those with the POWER to do so. This fault of Lee Kuan Yew created 47 Public Failed Policies – his Fables and Foibles of a Life-time.

    UNTIL THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE THINK IN A CONSTITUTIONAL CONFORMIST MANNER, MAY BE THEN THEY CAN SEE REAL LEE KUAN YEW CLEARLY AND SPEAK OUT ACCORDINGLY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Glory, great leaders and empires are built from mind-sets or ideas, NOT FROM MONEY MONEY MONEY !

    A good morning to all.

    I am happy this morning because my feather friends the resident bulbuls in the young banyan tree began chirping and singing again at 7 a.m. sharp. They were missing yesterday. But they returned. Where did they go yesterday ? And how did they find their way back ? Intriguing questions for the curious minded.

    The distant plaintive and haunting calls of the urbanised golden oriole could be heard from a high tree-top. A Malaysian morning crowded by flora and fauna. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Singaporean news are coming over the Causeway in increasing volume daily.

    The collective Leadership is trying to emulate their Father Figure of old in the 21st Century. This is typical of a collective political Leadership to appease all concerned. How did Singapore get into this mess is easy to understand ?

    The decades of easy wealth accumulated from the Black Under Counter Trades in hard and soft arms etc which pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First, was the cause of her present dilemma.

    Suddenly Singapore’s lush Black Under Counter Trades were grabbed by the BRICS after the Cold War (1948-1989). But before this Lee Kuan Yew was the blue-eyed boy of the West who was permitted to be the ONLY ONE who could do the Black Under Counter Trades with Uncle Sam’s eyes closed. Fast trek from the peak of Singapore’s achievements at the end of the Cold War to to-day’s headlines thus :-

    1. ” SINGAPORE REFUTES CLAIMS THAT ACQUISITION OF F-35 FIGHTER JETS IS TO ALIGN ITSELF WITH US.”

    Is this fake news manufactured for a purpose ? Singapore can have as many squadrons of Lend-Lease super jets. It is a given amongst Asian nations that Singapore is already an ally of the US. How ? Forgot ? Remember the SEATO Defence Treaty ? Hence, historical facts play a vital part in exposing Singapore’s Bluffology or BS to all.

    Logically, if Singapore is already an ally of the US, WHY SHOULD SHE WASTE MONEY TO BUY MORE JETS ? I see this as an indecisive move by the Leadership which dared to buy only a couple of jets which is neither here nor there. Strange ways to deter Malay Threats which could only come from the sea ! How does China feel about all these ? She is too big to care !

    2. ” MALAYSIA PAID RM 2.4 BILLION TO DELIVER FREE WATER TO SINGAPORE ”

    This has been the case since the beginning when Lee Kuan Yew did the baksheesh concerning the 1962 Water Agreement. The price of water around the World is standard. Singapore is only shirking its INTERNATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY CONCERNING THIS.

    Even with free water Singapore WITHOUT THE LEE KUAN YEW BLACK UNDER COUNTER TRADES IN HARD AND SOFT ARMS ETC, is sliding down the gravy train rapidly despite all attempts to reverse the slide.

    With a large portion of the huge money reserves from the Cold War (1948-1989) now lost through the hands of the gnomes of Zurich and whatever is left, it is now a scenario of diminishing returns especially concerning the oil industry, Singapore is squeezed into the tightest corner possible.

    China is the main cause of reducing the virtual size of Singapore through her attractiveness to all investors. Then, the neighbouring countries are all doing their own things within their confines., What is left for Singapore ? NOTHING.

    This is compounded by the fact that there will be no more white rabbits coming out of the proverbial hat. A very bleak scenario indeed for Singapore now ruled by a collective Leadership. A collective Leadership to rule over only 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50. Vide. Singapore Government’s White Paper on Population 2011.

    Even if Singapore is flooded with FREE WATER, her potential in taking advantage of opportunities to realise big revenues is gone forever because of just one mistake. NOT TO INVEST IN GOLD UP TO 4,000 TONS IN THE 1980s WHEN SINGAPORE WAS FLUSHED WITH MONEY.

    Lee Kuan Yew being a human being forgot Singapore has NO NATURAL RESOURCE NOT EVEN WATER. THEREFORE SINGAPORE MUST HAVE A NATURAL RESOURCE WHICH GIVES IT LEVERAGE AND POWER TO BATTEN DOWN MALAYSIA AND PULL HERSELF UP TO THE SUPER POWERS OF THE WORLD ! He forgot. Now the Singaporeans suffer for his NARCISSISM AND UPPITY WAYS !

    The price of GOLD is now US$ 2,000 per ounce. It was less than US$ 300 in the 1980s.

    THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SINGAPORE TO RULE THE WORLD WITH THE UNITED STATES IS NOW GONE FOREVER.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    MALAYSIA IS NOW ONE OF FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    The New and Incorruptible Government led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI and the Team by his side will fashion sound Policies concerning Foreign Affairs, Socio-economics, Humanities etc to put our beloved Malaysia onto the higher levels of human endeavour with the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, and Good Governance Japan. Where are you, Singapore ? Still dreaming about your 3 Malaysian sens for 1,000 gallons of Malaysian water ?

    3. ” THERESA MAY’S REVISED DEAL DEFEATED IN PARLIAMENT ”

    In 1976, it was easy for Britain to enter the EU. I was aghast that Britain did so with the historical fact that she fought so many wars on the Continent. Nearly every one other country was her former enemy. Yet she threw the Commonwealth overboard by this act.

    42 years later, Britain found that all her iconic institutions were being threatened by foreign influence. She voted to get out of the EU. Now she found to her horror that it is extremely difficult to get a good deal to exit. And we are talking about one of the most developed and educated groups in the World.

    Let the lesson of Britain and the EU for our eager proponents of the Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA/CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays Killer which as I have explained had only ONE MAIN FUNCTION which is to BREAKDOWN THE TARIFF BARRIER FOR THE SOLE BENEFIT OF SINGAPORE LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED TO FLOOD THE MALAYSIAN MARKETS AS THE FIRST STEP. And enslave our beloved Malaysia as the second step through the provision of loans to the now besieged incumbent Malaysian Government of the day.

    The scanty 1962 Water Agreement could cover so many points in Lee Kuan Yew’s favour. THE TPPA/CPTPP HAS 50 VOLUMES OF LEGALESE. This shows Lee Kuan Yew’s INTENTION TO LOCK UP OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS A SLAVE COLONY OF SINGAPORE FOREVER. To Lee Kuan Yew, the Chinese, Indians and all do not count in his estimation.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    On your Royal Address in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday before our Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and the distinguished audience, I was intrigued by certain gems which were incorporated in your speech.

    The YBs in your Team would do well to study in detail how to present cogent points or facts in a properly manner as befits a YB in the citadel of POWER and not behave like a sam-seng in some wet market.

    Your speeches have always intrigued me because of their originality and the expressions of thought, serious thoughts expressed in a light hearted way. This is the WAY to go for the sycophantic YBs to express themselves meaningfully always to the Rakyat.

    The Art of effective communication is the most important weapon in a Public Servant’s repertoire. And no capital is involved but a bit of focus and home-work.

    Let us hope from now onwards, the YBs of the New and Incorruptible Government will provide us with intriguing speeches for the next 61 years and not 61 months.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Keep smiling Tun Dr Siti Hasmah and your good-self. The World will smile with you.

    The most misleading and eye-catching headline today from the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, thus

    ” CPTPP : INVESTORS VIEWS COUNT.”

    This is the most misleading headline on a subject which is dear to the hearts of all Singaporeans who are incarcerated in the tiny tropical isle of Singapore.

    This Malaysia Killer/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP is the creation of Lee Kuan Yew to BREAK DOWN THE TARIFF DOOR OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA SO THAT SINGAPORE LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED GOODS COULD FLOOD INTO THE FEDERATION.

    This flood will kill all our small businesses and cast out thousands of citizens from their jobs. This will bring the downfall of any incumbent Government. Chaos will reign.

    Singapore has successfully turned our beloved Malaysia into her Slave Colony by Malaysia’s own hand.

    To ratify this TPPA/CPTPP MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER WILL BE THE GREATEST HARA-KIRI THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. The Malaysians sacrificed themselves FOR NOTHING IN THEIR OWN INTERESTS BECAUSE OF THE TREACHERY OF THEIR POLITICAL LEADERSHIP AND ITS GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVICE.

    Here is the genesis of this sordid tale of treachery and double dealing by Lee Kuan Yew in his own interest and Singapore. His legacy for his inheritors – a huge captive country full of natural resources and market for the everlasting benefit of Singapore but inhabited by Malaysians who are happy-go-lucky and cannot care a damn for their own self-respect and survival.

    When the Cold War collapsed in 1989, Lee Kuan Yew had already been involved in the Black Under-Counter Trades since 1962. The year when he conducted a CIA sandiwara made for two.

    With the increasing momentum of the Cold War, this Black Under Counter Trades grew concomitantly. The Black Trades were condoned by Uncle Sam for 2 reasons, the strategic importance of Singapore and the impeccable credentials to the West of Lee Kuan Yew after he locked up the Leftists during the 1962 Coldstore Operation at the insistence of the Tunku via his Adviser, the Counter-Insurgency expert Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too.

    The Black Trades were Hard and Soft Arms Trades, Money Laundering, Toadying up to dictators, Sanctions breaking of China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East and Africa, Collecting Vietnam War debris free, Smuggling, US R & R, bunkering and air base. US corporate investment etc. This was Lee Kuan Yew’s real Miracle not those glittering skyscrapers you see today.

    The huge profits accrued to a small population of 2 Million ruled by a honest authoritarian Government pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First by the 1990s.

    This was Lee Kuan Yew’s Dilemma when Singapore’s lucrative Black Under counter Trades were taken over by the BRICS after Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel. ‘ Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights ‘ which eventually back-fired on him.

    With the bleak scenario of a void of a once lucrative global market, Lee Kuan Yew faced the prospect of a new and tough World.

    He sent Goh Chok Tong to recruit the Indian FTs as per conventional dictates.

    By 2002, Singapore suffered her first technical recession after years of 7% GDPs.

    How could this have happened is now revealed in the fact that Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% from 2002 to 2018 – 16 years. The deficit of 2-3% could be attributed to the contribution by the loss of the Black Under Counter Trades to the BRICS from 1990 after the end of the Cold War (1948-1989).

    Lee Kuan Yew could conjure 4 Initiatives to take up the void by 2004 eg. the ill-conceived Temasek, the 2 casinos, the FT imports and the Malaysia/Malays Killer Free Trade Scheme.

    By 2006, the Free Trade Scheme was up and running with only 4 members Singapore, Brunei, Chile and New Zealand. The Americans were not interested. But after the Crash of October 2008 Obama called the Lee Kuan Yew Free Trade Scheme his own TPPA.

    Upon the exposure of the TPPA that the Malaysians were involved secretly for 19 meetings, the Malaysian cast of the participants were clear. The Prime Minister, the Minister of Trade and Industry and the Head of the MITI were directly involved. The latter’s Singaporean spouse was Singapore’s most senior journalist in Kuala Lumpur. Journalists were often arrested by China, Russia, Iran, Egypt and North Korea.

    And what is the TPPA/CPTPP.

    This wicked Trade Agreement designed by Lee Kuan Yew was crafted and put together by him personally because with Obama’s OK in his pocket he paid a visit to the hot and humid Ulus under the pretence of visiting his friends who were digits, cohorts, spies, tycoons, fellow travellers, politicians, ladies with POWER etc. in his keenness to see that his wicked TPPA got all the Malaysian support to enslave and kill themselves by their own hands.

    The TPPA only benefits Singapore because geographically it is a part of Malaysia. All the other countries are far away. Details of finalising the TPPA with them will take time.

    BUT SINGAPORE OVERNIGHT CAN FLOOD THE WIDE OPEN GATES WITHOUT TARIFF OF THE FEDERATION. This will bankrupt all our small businesses and throw thousands out of work. Chaos and disturbances will be blamed on the incumbent Government of the day.

    Malaysia is enslaved forever by Singapore by signing HER OWN DEATH WARRANT THE TPPA/CPTPP THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER.

    The proponents of the TPPA/CPTPP said that Malaysia will benefit from better corporate governance, bigger markets in the United States in 20 years time. Now US is no more in the CPTPP. Malaysian condoms and gloves will have a bigger market – this industry is a light weight business with no benefits outside its esoteric specialty.

    AND THE LATEST SPIEL PROBABLY FROM SINGAPORE – THAT THE TPPA/CPTPP WILL ATTRACT INVESTORS. This is a misnomer.

    Investors without prompting will know where to look for the best returns and profits.

    If the New Government remains Incorruptible and Efficient with normal regulations, there will be plenty of investors even from Singapore.

    NO SOVEREIGN COUNTRY IN ITS NATIONAL INTEREST SHOULD BEND TO PLEASE FOREIGN INVESTORS WHO ARE FICKLE AND RUN AWAY AT THE DROP OF THE HAT.

    Finally, the statement by the YB is without substance why our beloved Malaysia should also ratify A SELF-DESTRUCTIVE AGREEMENT just because Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore have either signed the TPPA/CPTPP or expressed a strong wish to do so. I would consider this statement a dangerous attitude in favour of Singapore which has never done anything in our beloved Malaysia’s interests.

    THAILAND IS THAILAND, VIETNAM IS VIETNAM. SINGAPORE IS SINGAPORE.

    EACH NATION HAS THEIR OWN NATIONAL INTERESTS AND SOVEREIGNTY.

    What has the New and Incorruptible Government got to GAIN BY COPYING SINGAPORE FOR EXAMPLE ?

    We now know that by joining the TPPA/CPTPP, our beloved Malaysia will certainly meet its own DEATH AS A FREE AND INDEPENDENT NATION COMMITTED BY HER OWN HAND helped along by treacherous types who would sell their grand-mothers down river.

    Man proposes. God disposes. On 1 January 2017, President Trump tore up the TPPA. On 9 May 2018, our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad threw out THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    The balls-out push by Singapore’s Leadership to force our beloved Malaysia to ratify the TPPA/CPTPP in order for Singapore to survive on one single adventure SHOWS THE DILEMMA AND THE VERY BLEAK FUTURE SCENARIO FOR THE VERY EXISTENCE OF SINGAPORE BECAUSE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HOLDS THE KEYS TO THEIR PROBLEMS. Hence, Lee Kuan Yew’s constant BLUFFOLOGY or BS.

    Now with more and more facts on Singapore revealed, I doubt if Singapore can exist more than 100 years as from 1965 in her present form of politics and socio-economics. To confederate with the United Kingdom is one possible answer.

    I was seated outside my house waiting for my grand-daughter to get her things ready for her favourite SMK with its wonderful teachers and pupils but the pair of resident bulbul birds in the young banyan tree was not around this morning. May be they are away for good. This has always been my fear.

    But from the distant high tree top, I could hear the urbanised golden oriole with its haunting and plaintive cry. Was this the call for a mate in the dry season ?

    The British ornithologist employed by Lee Kuan Yew would be able to tell us as he was employed by him to find out why Singapore had no birds after he chopped down all the worm-ridden fruit bearing trees of Singapore and replaced them with squeaky clean rain-trees, bougainvilleas and Lee Kuan Yew creepers. The famished birds flew off to JB !

    The birds are back today because as usual Lee Kuan Yew over-reacted and now only plant trees which attract the birds to Singapore.

    The use of Public Policy to chase away or attract the birds was exactly like that applied to human beings. A very apt comparison is to be found in the relaxation or imposition of rules on foreigners buying properties in Singapore or Australia !

    And the headlines today ? Thus

    1. ” GOVT MAY EXTEND HOUSING LOAN TENURE ”

    To extend the Housing Loan Tenure is no panacea for the plight of the ordinary Rakyat. Here is a true example :

    A person takes out a RM 250,000 mortgage for 30 years at 4.5% interest per annum. He or she has to pay RM 375 as monthly principle and RM 1,250 as interest. Food for one person per month is approximately RM 900. Just on this 2 items alone, the total expenditure is RM 1,625 per month based on a minimum wage of RM 1,200.

    Why is affordable housing so difficult to take off in Malaysia ?

    It is our political socio-economic system which is based on democratic principles and not by central command unlike in Singapore and other authoritarian countries.

    Therefore taking cognizance of the facts which have been the obstacles to affordable housing in Malaysia, we can only come to a fair and reasonable cost if all parties involved in the construction industry co-operate.

    But Malaysia is a free market place full of independently minded entrepreneurs faced with thickets of red tape. How ?

    I can only point out where the greatest co-operation and price reduction may take place eg the Government and its lands, stamp duty etc, the property developers if they are rich but not the contractors who operate at a different risk level, the banks should reduce their rapacious ways on steady as a rock mortgages at least for the first time buyer.

    But a scheme like this is not an even playing field which all do not subscribe to it. At the end of the day, whatever is said and not done amounts to lip-service of an incumbent Government.

    China is a huge mirror of Malaysia’s affordable housing problems. Both with similar construction industry structures. Is this the price of freedom for Malaysians to pay like the Swiss and the Japanese ?

    2. ” MALAYSIA SHORT OF HIGH-SKILLED JOBS ” The sentence below this ” Labour market is skewed towards low skilled jobs ” MIDF Research. These two headlines were juxtaposed side by side and certainly each gave a different meaning to the whole because these beg the logical question,

    ‘ HOW CAN THERE BE A SHORTAGE OF HIGH-SKILLED JOBS WHEN AS THE NEXT SENTENCE REPORTED THAT THE LABOUR MARKET IS SKEWED TOWARDS LOW SKILLED JOBS ? ”

    This gives the impression either the MIDF Report was mis-interpreted without thought or the Report said so. Correct information is important for a decision-maker in the incumbent Government as we will see in the last headline in my following comment on TPPA/CPTPP.

    3. ” AZMIN WANTS MALAYSIAN AIRLINES TO REVIEW ORDER OF BOEING 737 MAXs.”

    This BOEING 737 MAX is an entirely different plane form the old 737 which we all love and knew.

    This is Leadership with a capital “L”.

    Unlike a former BN Minister of Transport who was asked why the MH17 flew over war-torn Ukraine, his reply was ” NO ONE ASK US NOT TO FLY THERE “. As a result, 189 innocent lives were lost. No Vision, No Initiative. No Creativity.

    But his successor the incumbent Minister of Transport ordered all Malaysian flights to avoid the conflict in the Kashmir area as soon as hostilities broke out between India and Pakistan.

    This is what I call Leadership without prompting and full of common sense.

    Ministers should think and act like a Minister in the Federal Interest in support of the Prime Minister and his Government with DSAI and the Team by his side. Ministers should not be bogged down by nurseries in the Dewan Rakyat, toy planes etc.

    May be it is a good idea for the Prime Minister to furnish these YBs with broad brushes to be able to paint in broad strokes in the Federal manner and in the National Interest of the Rakyat. Time is of the essence.

    I wish the present incumbent Government of the old and the young and the good and the great to rule for the next 61 years, not only 61 months. This is our beloved Malaysia’s last chance to reach the lofty heights of the likes of Visionary Switzerland which took 800 years of confederation, Democratic India 5,000 years and Good Governance Japan 3,000 years.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    The good news is that the resident bulbuls are still with us and nesting in the young banyan tree. In his happiness, the chirping and the singing was loud and clear beginning at 6.55 a.m. this morning. This was a good accompaniment to my day. However, the headline which caught my eye was thus ;-

    ” MUDAJAYA IN TOUGH BATTLE FOR JUSTICE. ‘

    The nub of this headline is that an employee of this company was caught stealing RM 72 MIllion but was only charged for stealing RM 800,000 after 5 years due to the lack of legal safeguards to prevent white-collar crooks from taking advantage of the lax Laws and absconding. This un-convicted felon managed to escape to New Zealand to start a new life with the stolen money.

    Datuk Yusli Mohamad Yusoff the Mudajaya’s Group independent non-executive Chairman is one of the corporate figures with the highest integrity in the land. He certainly has something meaningful to say in the National Interest. In this particular instance, the lackadaisical attitude of the relevant authorities and the old and revised Laws which govern human and corporate activities.

    As it is commonly said, ‘ It is easier to practice Medicine than Law because with Medicine common ailments occur commonly. But in Law, every new case is different and living as this concern human beings.

    YET OUR ESSENTIAL LAWS LIKE THE COMPANIES ACT 1965, THE BANKURPTCY ACT 1967 AND THE TRUSTEES ACT 1949 ARE OUT-OF-DATE AND NOT IN CONSONANT WITH THE SAME LAWS IN BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA. These are one of the most important Laws in a Government’s legal repertoire.

    The 3 successive BN Ministers of Law were incompetent and self-serving.

    The latest revision of the Bankruptcy Act 1967 was no revision at all. In fact that it waa a travesty of Justice in which over 200,000 young Malay bankrupts and over 200,000 non-Malay bankrupts were misled and incarcerated by the last BN Minister of Law who created 2 Bankruptcy Acts – one before October 2017 and one after 2017. The over 400,000 bankrupts are still incarcerated by the old Act. The revised Act only begin to function after October 2018. It is alleged the Minister was influenced by financial interests who dare not do this in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. Vide. The Star Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018.

    IF THE PH PUT THE BN REVISED BANKRUPTCY LAW RIGHT LIKE IN BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA, SURELY IT WILL GET THE VOTES OF OVER 400,000 URBANITES IN THE NEXT 15TH GE !

    And surely the PH Minister of Law is not as incompetent and self-serving as his 3 BN Ministers predecessors ?

    In 1982, the BN Government was fair and just. The 1982, Marriage Reform Act recognised all marriages before 1982. There was no discrimination. No 2 Classes of marriage were created UNLIKE THE INCOMPETENT BN MINISTER OF LAW IN 2017 WITH THE BANKRUPTCY ACT !

    There was another case concerning my family Trust. I wanted to report that the Trust was hi-jacked out of jurisdiction in 2002. I met the ASP in charge a Chinese woman in the KL contingent headquarters. She asked me, ‘ Did you see the Trustee steal the money ?’ I replied, ‘No.’ She told me bluntly, ‘ No case !” Recently, I reported the same. By this time the crooked Trustee had died young and all the money gone.

    See how much money our beloved Malaysia lost concerning Mudajaya and my family Trust ! And we can hardly guess how many billions of ringgits were stolen through LOOP-HOLES BECAUSE OF OUR OUT-DATED LAWS AND LAX ENFORCEMENT TO BENEFIT HOST COUNTRIES.

    It is timely that Malaysia should have EXTRADITION TREATIES WITH CHINA, HONG KONG, BRITAIN, CANADA, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND NO MATTER HOW LONG THE NEGOTIATIONS WILL TAKE in keeping with our new status as ONE F THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. And up-date its ESSENTIAL LAWS LIKE THE COMPANIES ACT 1965, THE BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967, THE TRUSTEES ACT 1949. With up-to-date Laws, we are as useless and ineffective as a DODO !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Today is a good day to reflect and think about events which are swirling around us.

    For those with the POWER to do good, I wish them well.

    But from 2004-2018, it was horrifying to watch those with POWER abusing their trust after the Rakyat voted them into POWER.

    The extent of abuse was unbelievable in a small country which had its Merdeka since 1957. Thereafter, successive Governments had the trust and support of the Rakyat until 2004 when all went hay-wire.

    Singapore as always was ready to pounce on any weakness in our Malaysia’s armour. And the chink in the armour was the BN Leadership itself. The moment it showed weakness of the flesh and a soft-under-belly, Singapore was there at the front of the queue.

    This was abang-adek or very hot Causeway relationships in private retreats as advertised. Where else in the World does a Leadership exposed itself to foreign interests like this, but Malaysia ? Sovereign and National Interest forgotten !

    However, at the end of the day, our beloved Malaysia’s SECRET WEAPON – MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES protected us. We the Rakyat need something special to ward off cunning and famished predators from all directions.

    How many Malaysians realise that any iota of influence Lee Kuan Yew or Singapore has in Malaysia is a GOOD SELLING POINT FOR SINGAPORE ? This is known as LEVERAGE ! How ?

    The answer is EXACTLY LIKE THE CLOSEST AIDE WHO NOW COLLECTS STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS AT US$ 5 MILLION A PIECE.

    In the mid-1980s, this fellow who used to carry the respectable Tan Sri Basir Ismail’s Samsonite, after a round of golf with the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore at the Singapore Island Golf Club, boasted, ‘ I HAVE THE EARS OF THE GOOD AND THE GREAT OF KL.’

    Indeed, he had because he is now a ringgit billionaire from zero base in 1982 !

    Who says there is discrimination against foreign permanent residents of Singapore in Malaysia ?

    Some of this fellow’s major self-serving activities behind his Boss’s back are engraved in stone in the 1993-1994 Annual Reports of Cycle & Carriage Lid and Bintang Cycle & Carriage Berhad. – he was selling the best assets to his erstwhile friends at good values. Lee Kuan Yew was exactly like this when he sat next to any US President in Washington DC. What I call “selling our grandmothers down river !”

    The cacophony of Singaporean letter writers to the media is increasing as the days go by. The contents are emotional abusive and not factual. They never question what really went wrong with the Way Singapore was governed through the Policies of the Leadership which now give rise to only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50. This is the REAL PROBLEM for Singapore – the lack of a genetic pool to produce outstanding leaders in a tiny place.

    If the Leadership clings on to Lee Kuan Yew’s Policies of the 20th Century when he and Singapore were riding high with the huge profits from the Black Under-counter Trades of the Cold War (1948-1989), and now they have NOTHING, I doubt if Singapore can exist in its present form politically and socio-economically for 100 years from its date of establishment in 1965.

    The finest and biggest opportunity to invest in GOLD when Singapore had so much money in the 1980s was lost forever.

    How this opportunity was missed is no mystery because all options were not considered ?

    If Lee Kuan Yew being the BOSS had considered all options, the logical Policy would have to invest in GOLD up to 4,000 tpms BECAUSE SINGAPORE HAS NO NATURAL RESOURCES NOT EVEN WATER. Therefore, Singapore MUST HAVE SOMETHING OF VALUE WHICH HAS LEVERAGE TO PROJECT IS TINY IMAGE TO THE WORLD.

    And with 4,000 tons at US$ 300 per ounce in her hands whether it is really in Singapore or not, THE INTERNATIONAL LEVERAGE WOULD HAVE BEEN TREMENDOUS ! This has become a pipe-dream. An opportunity for Singapore to be special has now gone forever. Man proposes. God disposes. This is a good lesson for all that arrogance does not pay.

    I say it again that Singapore’s future is very bleak, not from an internal aspect but from the financial turmoils of the World which will surely wash onto her shores IF THE LEADERSHIP STUBBORNLY AND BLINDLY RELIES ON THE OUT-DATED POLICIES OF LEE KUAN YEW eg. Temasek, 2 casinos, FTs and the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP !

    Nowadsys, a public person like a politician in the ruling party has to be very careful with his public comments.

    On the subject of Khazanah’s normal accounting practice applied to its latest results, the Opposition media twisted this with all sorts of negative headlines imaginable ,thus :-

    ” KHAZANAH OWES MPS PUBLIC AN EXPLANATION MAHATHIR ”

    There were other similar headlines which struck an ordinary person as thought there were some wrong doing by the new Management.

    Of course to the well-informed and the cognoscenti the huge loss of RM 6 Billion was the result of proper accounting practice according to International Accounting Standards whereby ALL HIDDEN LOSSES AND IMPAIRMENTS FROM THE PAST YEARS ARE ACCOUNTED FOR SO THAT THE NEW MANAGEMENT CAN MANAGE PROPERLY WITH A CLEAN ACCOUNTING SHEET SO TO SPEAK.

    In the National Interest, this form of headlines twisting is SABOTAGE WITH THE INTENT OF WREAKING HAVOC ON THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY. Such treasonous acts should come under the rule of the Law.

    The huge losses can only be attributed to the sins and crimes of the previous Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites.

    Huge and expensive advertisements were put up in the media to put forward the case of how effective and good the GLCs were making money for the Rakyat via BN Government. To me, this is just to cover the sins of the corrupt.

    And now all sins are revealed and exposed.

    I learnt about having a ‘clean slate’ set of accounts in any company or business entity from a MCA fellow who later went to jail. He did not follow his own advice.

    At some point, it was alleged he called me ‘ A MALAY BUM SUCKER ‘ because the Malays achieved control of Sime Darby through my 1972 Concept with the support of the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh.

    For a MCA Leader not to know that the Malays only owned 2% of Malaysia’s economy on 13 May 1969 was a travesty of Justice.

    Then, the British owned 70% of the best, the Chinese 25% with only a handful of towkays and the Malays just 2%. There were no finance facilities for the Malays and the non-Malays like credit cards, car or house loans, or OD facilities. The rich only got richer in a Currency Board Type of Economy.

    With the Sime Darby excuse that the Malays were going to own all businesses, this MCA fellow whipped the Chinese into a political frenzy and his Party involved in business. By 1985, he could remit S$ 100 Million to his girl friend’s account in Hong Kong via my friend. Billionaires lent him money when he was in trouble with the authorities by pretending to be poor. He said so himself.

    The Khazanah Management has done a proper professional and transparent task in the management of its assets.

    The next treatment should be to sell off as many as possible IT’S INVESTMENTS WHICH WERE ACQUIRED WITHOUT THE RAKYAT IN MIND BEGINNING WITH THE IIH AND THE LEGOLAND AS WELL.

    Many Rakyat find It difficult to make ends meet. YET THE PREVIOUS KHAZANAH MANAGEMENT SPENT BILLIONS OF RINGGITS OVERSEAS AND ON LEGOLAND AS WELL. How bonkers could they be ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem with present day Khazanah’s accounting format. But beware of the twisty minds of the Opposition media editors.

    The details of Singapore’s failure to get Malaysia to ratify the TPPA Malaysia/Malays Killer are the losses from Singapore’s apparent savings of a minimum of S$ 1 Billion annually as reported by the Straits Times. This could be translated into the cost of expenditure to convert for free the Jurong Golf Club into a multi-billion dollar complex through re-valuation. Without Malaysia in the TPPA, Singapore has a void which cannot be filled. And instead of a bountiful profit, Singapore now faces losses of undetermined value.

    Hence, the elites beat their chests, tear their hair and voice out unmentionable words at the mention of Malaysia and her beloved Prime Minister ! Silly ! The whole problem or fracas was created by no less than their hero, Lee Kuan Yew !

    On the 1/2 share in an office building now owned by Malaysia. May be we trade this off to China in contra for other payments. The property scenario in Singapore is weakening due to surplus around the World and its slowing economy.

    Many readers must wonder why I always harped on the TPPA/CPTPP. Here is the whole story behind the words.

    In 1965 when Singapore left the Federation, the Cold War (1948-1989) was at its height. Then, it was a World of spies and many under-cover activities in a World which was Black is Black, White is White. The cold struggle for demographics and geographics.

    Singapore was at that time in an enviable position by being right in the centre of South East Asia astride a key trading sea route of the World. Singapore had the leverage. And Lee Kuan Yew had just put all the Leftists into jail via Operation Coldstore at the insistence of the Tunku via Malaya’s Adviser on Counter-insurgency, Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too. Hence, his credentials were impeccable to the West.

    In 1972, the Institute of South East Asian Studies were established. Its front was academic but the purpose behind it was sinister. This was evident in later years, when only young UMNO aspirants were invited to speak at its forums. The Straits Times would laud their speeches the following day with words like ‘brilliant’ etc. These were all recorded in the library of the Straits Times off Bukit Timah.

    The cast of characters and events eventually build up to a crescendo – the ultimate legal weapon TPPA/CPTPP to enslave our beloved Malaysia by her own hand to shoot herself in the foot in Singapore’s interest.

    Of the UMNO aspirants after having been lauded by the sycophants, one eventually became at the appropriate time, the Minister of Trade & Industry.

    Singapore grew in wealth and stature through the ill-gotten gains of the black counter trades of the Cold War (1948-1989). Lee Kuan Yew grew in cockiness concomitantly. Of course, the West knew all about him and his capabilities. THEY CREATED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE !.

    But Lee Kuan Yew knew that those halcyon Cold War years could end abruptly. But he could not find a solution to replace the void. He reached for the tomes from Kino and Borders. The decision was to import FTs from India to boost the GDP of a collapsing economy. The consequences of creating artificial demographics are dire in any country as we can see now.

    By 2002, the writing on the wall for Singapore was clear. She suffered her first technical recession.

    But suddenly, the finest gift felled into Lee Kuan Yew’s hands.

    The unexpected resignation of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, his Nemesis of a life-time. A worthy person who stood by his principles and did not believe in all the Lee Kuan Yew’s contrived nonsense of abang-adek Causeway politics of flattery. For 22 years, Lee Kuan Yew could not make any meaningful headway in Singapore/Lee Kuan Yew’s interest.

    At this juncture, Lee Kuan Yew conjured a Free Trade Scheme which took off in 2006 with only Brunei, New Zealand, Chile and Singapore as members. He was so cocksure about its success that an International Trade Tribunal was established in Singapore in 2005. To this day, the Tribunal is still waiting for business from careless Malaysians who did not read the small print.

    In 2006, the Americans were riding high and were not interest in Lee Kuan Yew’s Free Trade Scheme which main purpose was to break open the TARIFF BARRIER OF MALAYSIA TO SINGAPORE GOODS BECAUSE SMUGGLING DID GIVE ONLY AN UNSTABLE 10-20% REVENUE. To him, Malaysia has always been Singapore’s Nirvana.

    In October 2008, Wall Street crashed and affected the Western financial system badly. Obama was in a panic thereafter.

    The next scenario, the Free Trade Scheme became Obama’s TPPA – Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement.

    Through the Cold War years and beyond, Lee Kuan Yew was a firm believer in the use of swallows, ducks, tycoons, journalists, academics, bankers etc as spies whom he would reward very well. On this score, Lee Kuan Yew had strong links with the US Democrats and some US elites.

    In June 2009, with the Obama’s OK in his pocket, Lee Kuan Yew under the pretence of saying good-bye to his digits, cohorts, spies, politicians etc, made a trip to the hot and humid Ulus at the age of 85 to ensure the TPPA’s success by his charismatic presence to naïve Malaysians ! He even had tea with a lady off Jalan Duta. So meticulous was Lee Kuan Yew on his TPPA. Cheekily, he paid a courtesy call on our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on his way to the airport !

    From his view point, the cast of Malaysian characters to sign the TPPA in Singapore/his favour was very clear and cannot miss.

    TO GET THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT TO SELL OUT MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT LEGALLY IN SINGAPORE’S ETERNAL INTEREST BY HER OWN HAND ! The cast as follows :

    1. THE BN GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP WAS HAVING VERY HOT RELATIONSHIPS WITH SINGAPORE’S LEADERSHIP. The fact is the relationship was on-going since 1986 !

    2. THE MINISTER OF TRADE & INDUSTRY WAS THE FELLOW WHO GOT A TERRIFIC RECEPTION AT THE ISEAS IN THE 1990s !

    3. THE TPPA’S CHIEF MALAYSIAN NEGOTIATOR’S SPOUSE WAS A SINGAPOREAN WHOM CERTAIN COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA, RUSSIA, EGYPT AND IRAN WOULD LOVE TO PUT IN JAIL BECAUSE OF HIS PROFESSION. He worked for a Singapore Government’s agency as its chief in Kuala Lumpur. With undue anxiety, MALAYSIA’S VERY OWN TPPA CHIEF NEGOTIATOR INSISTED IN A RED HEADLINE IN NSTP IN JANUARY 2017 THAT MALAYSIA MUST SIGN THE TPPA. There is an ancient saying,’ The maid servant is bigger than the lady Boss !’

    ALL THE DREAMS OF LEE KUAN YEW CAME TRUE DUE TO HIS UNENDING EFFORTS OF A LIFE-TIME TO CONQUER OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IN SINGAPORE’S INTEREST UP TO 9 MAY 2018.

    Overnight, the cruel and cunning thoughts of Lee Kuan Yew collapsed and our beloved Malaysia instead of being a slave Colony of Singapore which would have flooded our economy with tax free goods overnight and kill all our businesses, BECAMEE ONE OF 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA. Before this, the Straits Times bragged that Singapore would save S$ 1 Billion a year minimum annually with the TPPA OR MALAYSIA WOULD LOSE RM 3.3 BILLION MINIMUM !

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. From the Private Sector only Prof Jomo opposed. Even the President of the SME was for the TPPA and was ennobled accordingly.

    In my comments on Lee Kuan Yew and his Singapore, I have mentioned his 47 Failed Public Policies. For those readers who are not aware about this, please access (www.chedet.cc.org) “Archives. Malaysia according to Kuan Yew. September 2010.”

    THE ONLY LIVING EXAMPLE IN THE WORLD WHERE A PERSON IN A TINY PLACE TRIED TO SUBJUGATE A HUGE COUNTRY THROUGH LEGAL MEANS AND FAILED. HE THOUGHT HE WAS VERY CLEVER AND THE MALAYSIANS STUPID AND CORRUPT.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    A headline, ” Mahathir Mohamad. I AM PRO-MALAYSIA. NOT ANTI-SINGAPORE.”

    These are actually not trying times for our beloved Malaysia but just the normal house-cleaning of the Augean Stables after 14 years of excesses in everything.

    Soon, our beloved Malaysia will recover and as one of the 4 important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia will zoom up to the likes of the Greats like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    Unlike Singapore which has Leadership problems and now has to work in a collective manner after the 4 Initiatives of Lee Kuan Yew collapsed eg. the ill-conceived Temasek which brought down Singapore to the level of the hoi-polloi, the FTs imports were like pushing the economy with a string, the 2 casinos in a crowded neighbourhood and the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP, Malaysia is now back on her front foot to move rapidly forward with the right Leaders after a hiatus of 14 years of waste and abuse.

    This only shows how determined Singapore wanted to bring down Malaysi., She did not succeed. Right up to the point that the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP was signed but not ratified. Man proposes. God disposes.

    As I always said that to understand a problem a person has to revert back to history in order to discover the basic facts which cause the problem.

    History is the finest arbiter of the TRUTH.

    In the case of Singapore, I too was once mesmerised by the brainwashing put up by Lee Kuan Yew but since 1951, I had always had doubts about him. He was too good to be true. And my recent over 8 years of study have produced results and information contrary to the popular belief as instigated by him. Here are the findings :-

    1. The Real Wealth of Singapore came from her black under counter trades of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    With the condonation by Uncle Sam, Singapore’s trades in hard and soft arms, smuggling, money laundering, toadying up to dictators, sanctions breaking, collecting free Vietnam war debris, US R & R, bunkering and air base facilities etc brought her a huge flood of money to a small population of less than 2 million ruled by a honest authoritarian Government. The Wealth pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First.

    Unfortunately, this huge Wealth caused Lee Kuan Yew to adopt the wrong Policies which gave rise to 47 Failed Public Policies.

    2. Singapore at the material time was fortunate to employ the services of the UN Economics expert Dr Albert Winsemius, a Dutchman,from 1962-1984. He was responsible for all the infra-structures in Singapore we see today. From Jurong via the Asian Dollar to the Changi reclamation and the glittering skyscrapers. Lee Kuan Yew capitalised on him and suppressed the brilliance of Dr Winsemius. It was only until 2017 that a small lane was named in his honour.

    3. Lee Kuan Yew’s character caused his downfall after his peak of academic achievement at Cambridge.

    The fact is his view of himself and the World never changed after he left the portals of the University of Cambridge. This is evident from his Policies like the 2 Child-Family, the Thaksin Purchase, his Political System and 44 other failed Public Policies especially of his one-sided view on how to deal with Malaysia and the Malays.

    He considered the Malaysian Chinese below him and corrupt.

    This cost Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew a lot of mileage but only a couple of rocks, steel rails, some landed assets etc.

    And now his inheritors are up a pole still trying to emulate his Malaysia Policy which have failed to capture Malaysia and the Malays in Singapore/his interest no matter how hard he tried using the resources of the State of Singapore.

    To save his legacy and his inheritors, he conjured up 4 Initiatives which were previously mentioned by me. All failed miserably with Singapore still in the rut since 2002.

    In fact the answers to Singapore’s survival are in the deep recesses of the elites brains.

    But these fellows do not know how to think and only know how to reach for Lee Kuan Yew’s dictats and quotations over and over again which is his out-dated 20th Century Policy towards Malaysia.

    The failure is confirmed by Malaysia being one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia after 9 May 2018 !

    THE THREE MAIN FACTORS AS ABOVE WERE WHAT MADE SINGAPORE RICH UP TO THE END OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989.

    Thereafter from the lofty heights of GIC in Singapore’s Sovereign and National Interest, Lee Kuan Yew became more of an ordinary person with his later moves which cost Singapore many billions of American Dollars at the instigation of the Gnomes of Zurich and POWER.

    And now Singapore is powerless to leave the clutches of these Gnomes who flattered Lee Kuan Yew in his moments of weakness in the 1990s. An ancient saying, ” There is always a higher mountain. ”

    If LEE KUAN YEW AND HIS ELITES WERE THAT SMART THEY WOULD HAVE INVESTED IN GOLD IN THE 1980s AT US$ 300 per ounce UP TO 4,000 TONS.

    They did not. THIS SHOWS THAT THEY DID NOT USE THEIR BRAINS AND NOT AS CLEVER AS THEY WANT THE WORLD TO BELIEVE THEY WERE !

    So, these folks are just like us Malaysians.

    Gold would have given Singapore POWER to control Malaysia, INDEPENDENCE FROM GNOMES and SURVIVAL TO ETERNITY.

    But by being too clever by far and denigrated the Malaysians, Singapore is now struggling to keep up with the big boys in the 21st Century. As Tun said, IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MIND-SET.’ Make it or break it.

    And negative headlines like this from Singapore which is the result of negative thinking and not POSITIVE from Bilahari Kausikan :-

    ” EX-ENVOY URGES SINGAPOREANS TO BRACE FOR MORE TROUBLE FROM MALAYSIA ”

    As I always say and quote Franklin D Roosevelt, ” THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF ”

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem if all the YBs wake up and recognise that they are being led by one of the best Prime Ministers in the World with DSAI and the Team by his side. Acheh !

    We live in a land full of fauna and flora and we have done precious little to preserve them. May be we are still developing our beloved Malaysia and lack the funds and human resources required to do so.

    However, the fauna did not wait for us to conserve or save them like the bulbuls in the young banyan tree or the urbanised golden oriole which thrive in towns. And of course, my feather friends the bulbuls were off the mark by chirping and singing at 6.55 a.m. to my astonishment ! They forced me to begin another day, these birds of a feather !

    The headlines to keep me awake this morning, thus :-

    ” TUN M : I SIDE WITH RICH CHINA OVER FICKLE U.S. ”

    There are at least 3 different versions of this report. As I have always commented that

    ” The Americans forget easily. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget. ”

    With each type of the people I mentioned, a person has to visit their countries to understand why they behave in this manner.

    On the Americans, they are a migratory people within their own borders. When they are in search of new jobs in new locations, they move on. Hence, they cannot let emotions or nostalgia hold them back in their search for survival for themselves and their families.

    The British had their huge Empire once which the Sun never sets. The French after chopping off the heads of their Royalty, never forgot their pomp and glory as exemplified by their Imperial architectural buildings which were maintained fastidiously. The Chinese would not be around since 5,000 years ago if they had been forgetful. The Malaysians are practical and move on in LIFE ! These explain.

    2. From Singapore. ” DID MALAYSIA’S TOURISM MINISTER REALLY SAY THERE ARE NO GAYS IN MALAYSIA ?”

    A photo of the YB who looked jet-lag and lack sleep was provided.

    First my humble apologies to all when I said the YB was in Hamburg famous for its red-light district.

    Now I realise the YB was in Berlin the CAPITAL FOR LGBTs in Europe like San Francisco for the United States and Sydney for Australia.

    Second, after what the YB said about the absence of LGBTs in Malaysia, no LGBT will tour Malaysia anymore for lack of companionship. How is the YB going to make amends on this which will reduce our tourist receipts somewhat ? For myself, I never like to visit Berlin because it was the battleground at the end of World War II and a capital for LGBTs in Europe. I had a nephew who died there at a young age.

    3. There is a Report. ” MALAYSIA AMONG MOST DANGEROUS OF 14 COUNTRIES IN APAC RANKED FOR WOMEN’S SAFETY……”

    Only a few days ago, a lady visitor from China was injured by the KLCC PETRONAS Towers in broad daylight when she became the victim of a snatch and run thief.

    This sort of incident does not give our beloved Malaysia a good name.

    Through the years, we were told there would be tourist patrols in the area. Reports of ill-behaved motor-cyclists at night in the same area have come to me.

    Perhaps, IT IS TIMELY THAT ALL FOREIGN TOURISTS ARE WARNED BY THEIR HOTELS AND TOUR AGENTS TO BE AWARE OF SUCH CRIMES AND AVOID BEING CARELESS FOR SUCH AN INCIDENT TO HAPPEN. Prevention is better than cure. The Ministry of Tourism has a role to play here.

    Kuala Lumpur has been turned into a metropolis for peoples of the World in recent times as it is an important nexus right in the middle of South East Asia. The arrival of different peoples cannot be forbidden as we have open borders and an open economy. This puts a strain on our PDRM.

    May be it is time to build up a really true TOURIST POLICE FORCE TO SAFEGUARD OUR VISITORS AT ALL TIMES AND IN THE RIGHT PLACES. And also the POWER to stop motorcyclists to check them will be helpful in reducing crimes altogether. The Ministry of Tourism has a lot on their plate at home.

    I have never heard of the Ministers of Tourism of Germany, Italy and Japan travel at all or as much as our Ministers of Tourism.

    The main task of a Minister of Tourism is to ensure that the tourists get the best deal in everything in our country and not get cheated or injured. This is a full time job.

    Germany, Italy and Japan rose from the ashes of defeat after the World War II through tourism. They have never looked back since those days. Malaysia is still at an infancy stage when it comes to the real business of Tourism which was never taken seriously even today.

    It was so lax that in the 1980s, ex-Civil servants in the Ministry could develop themselves into Vice-Chancellors today ! Believe it or not !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as the New and Incorruptible Government puts its act together now than later. It’s the Federal mind-sets, not the Communal mind-sets, which should prevail, YBs

    In this dry season, my feather friends the bulbuls must be nesting in the young banyan tree. They have not flown away yet. But soon when the rains come they will be gone to new pastures. So will the urbanised golden oriole with its plaintive and haunting calls. I will miss them until next year perhaps ?

    And the catchy headlines today are what matters most for those with an interest in current affairs of our beloved country, Malaysia. Thus,

    1. ” KHAZANAH’S LOSS SPARKS DEBATE. ”

    With all due respect, I wonder whether this is fake news or not.

    For a new management to provide for losses wherever possible is conventional and proper.

    Kudos to the Christ’s man ( Christ’s College, Cambridge ) for taking the proper stance in this regards as befitting a major public entity. This is the way to go after years of sinning by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites in the cover-up of years of losses so incurred by them.

    I remember large advertisements were placed in the media all over to justify the existence of these Singapore copies of corrupt GLCs. While this was going on, one has the discomfort of feeling every day that corrupt money was leaking out concomitantly.

    This headline is MISCHIEVOUS AND POSSIBLY A CONTRIVED FAKE AND TO BE IGNORED.

    2. ” MINISTRY OF TOURISM – NO CAMPAIGN AGAINST LGBT ”

    Three wrongs do not make a right thus :-

    (i) ” THE MINISTER THINKS THERE IS NO LGBT IN MALAYSIA ”

    There may be no LGBT Minister in the New and Incorruptible Government. I am certain the YB cannot speak for the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    (ii) ” HIS AIDE SAID THIS IS PUTRAJAYA’S OFFICIAL LINE.”

    Is there such an OFFICIAL LINE that there are no LGBTs in Malaysia ?

    (iii) ” MINISTRY OF TOURISM SAID THERE IS NO CAMPAIGN AGAINST LGBT.

    Now the Ministry is insinuating there are many LGBTs in Malaysia.

    First the YB was not aware that a Minister of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government created TWO BANKRUPTCY LAWS INSTEAD OF ONLY ONE TO PLEASE FINANCIAL INTERESTS AND MISLED OVER 200,000 YOUNG MALAY BANKRUPTS AND ANOTHER OVER 200,000 NON-MALAY BANKRUPTS. This Bankruptcy Law has to be properly revised. These are valuable and educated young urban votes for the 15th GE. Otherwise, the BN will gain on their promise to help these over 400,000 suffering voters ! It is either the PH in POWER WILL DO SO WITH THEIR MINISTER OF LAW or the BN will pick up these votes against the PH. All 3 BN Ministers of Law were INCOMPETENT AND SELF-SERVING !

    Second, it is alleged a LGBT minor official was chased off from the New and Incorruptible Government soon after it assumed POWER in 2018.

    3. ” TAIPING IS NO.3 MOST SUSTAINABLE CITY IN THE WORLD.”

    Singapore would have put all her energies to promote this to the World
    for TOURISM’S SAKE.

    But in our beloved Malaysia there is not a single squeak.

    This is free World wide publicity endowed on a small town in Malaysia.

    THERE ARE MANY MORE TOWNS LIKE TAIPING WHICH DESERVE EQUAL ATTENTION. IT IS THE JOB OF THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM TO PUBLISH A BOOK LISTING ALL THESE WONDERFUL ABODES OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. This is a cheap and effective way of PUBLICISING SOMETHING WHICH NO ONE NOTICED BEFORE.

    Not only that, the economies of these small towns will wake up with the influx of tourists, local and foreign. The eateries, the hotels and shops get more business.

    WHO WOULD NOT VOTE FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AGAIN ?

    This is action right down to the ground WHERE IT MATTERS !

    Travel Fair in Hamburg, Germany ?

    DUSTY AND DIRTY INDIA, CHINA AND THE MIDDLE EAST ARE WHERE THE TOURISTS ARE. The Germans are more interested in Spain, Italy, Greece and the Maldives if you know them well enough !

    LET US HOPE THIS MINISTRY DOES NOT BECOME ANOTHER TRAVEL AGENCY AGAIN FOR THE YB AND HIS CIVIL SERVANTS WASTING THE RAKYAT’S MONEY !

    One BN Minister of Tourism took her hubby in tow to visit the Southern Antipodes which know us well and have more kangaroos and sheep than the human population On another luxury swing, she promoted LONDON with an expensive Malaysian Orchid exhibit at the UPPER-CLASS ROYAL CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW, LONDON. She was awarded a Gold Medal by the Queen for promoting London. THIS GOLD MEDAL RIGHTFULLY BELONGS TO THE NATIONAL MUZIUM !

    In 1982, an UMNO Tan Sri tycoon told me that if a person had RM 20 Million, he could create a lot of trouble for the Government. Now the fellows have billions of ringgits of stolen money from the Rakyat !

    The present unending spate of fake news manufactured by the Opposition media underline this fact.

    It is best to ignore all these rubbish and FOCUS ON THE TASK OF GOVERNING AND DELIVERING BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE. Even Singapore has gone into this act since the middle of last year for reasons of her own.

    THE BIGGEST BATTLE TO COME FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVENRMNET WILL BE FROM NOW TO THE 15TH GE AFTER WHICH IF THE BN IS DEFEATED, it will be another Day, another Era for our beloved Malaysia.

    If I am a YB, I will first make sure my Ministry is FIGHTING FIT TO DELIVER TO THE RAKYAT. Second, my constituency is my responsibility for the better or worse. Third, whatever I say or do I must make sure that I do not soot myself in the foot or my colleagues in the Cabinet or my BOSS especially my beloved Malaysia and our hallowed Constitution safeguarded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans. Fourth, I must work as a Team with my BOSS and fellow YBs and LEAVE MY COMMUNAL THINKING WITH MY PASST OPPOSITION YEARS and think FEDERAL !

    With some practice, all these points become automatic and instinctive in a person’s mind. AND YOU ARE READY TO WIN THE NEXT GE, YB !

    However, before a YB is successful, there will be wonderful dinners, invitations, women, free travel, gifts etc coming from all directions to make the YB weak at the knees.

    I suppose one can call these OCCUPATIONAL RISKS OR HAZARDS OF A YB IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. Acheh !

    With the next BIG BATTLE IN THE 15TH GE, THE BATTLE HAS BEGUN NOW AS I SEE IT. The chances of the New and Incorruptible Government are good PROVIDED THE YBs CAN WORK AS A TEAM WITHOUT THEIR COMMUNALISTIC THOUGHTS WHEN IN OPPOSITION AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, DELIVER THE GOODIES.

    THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC GOODIES CAN ONLY BE DELIVERED BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT EN MASS TO THE RAKYAT like cheaper rice, more jobs or affordable houses, low inflation etc etc.

    BABY NURSERIES IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT, RM 1 MILLION TOY PLANES, HAVE A LOOK-SEE AT THE HAMBURG TRAVEL FAIR, DEMOTING ONE-SELF TO BE THE VICE-CHANCELLOR, PRETTY BILLS TO STOP HANGING MURDERERS AND BOTTOM PINCHING FOR THE ESOTERIC WESTERN OR LOCAL NICHES WILL SURELY GET NO VOTES FROM THE PRESENT HARD-UP AND LONG SUFFERING RAKYAT. YBs, it is the cheap food on the table after working at a job with a roof over one’s head at the end of the day THAT COUNT’S.

    BREAD AND BUTTER ISSUES AS A WESTERN POLITICIAN WILL SAY !

    With just common sense and hard-work and NO THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING MONEY, the New and Incorruptible Government WILL GOVERN FOR THE NEXT 61 YEAWRS ! By by MCA. Those YBs interested in making money, please resign and do business with plenty of opportunities under the Government.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem IF THE GOVERNMENT IS NORMAL, THE PRIME MINISTER AND HIS CABINET IS NORMAL. We will all have a NORMAL LIFE WITHOUT ANY ABNORMALITY ! This is what we all work for, YBs !

    Malaysia today is full of excitement.

    May be it is because of the speed of the delivery of information which made this so.

    Here is a collection of Ministerial announcements which were made in the basement whilst you were on the 88th Floor of PETRONAS Towers.

    In the case of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites were avalanched or flattened to nought by the weight of its scandals.

    Let us fervently hope that the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great is not similarly disposed of by the weight of its farcical Ministerial announcements.

    Government is a s serious business with a global oversight reach. Here are some notable quotes :-

    1. Quote. ” I think there is no LGBT in Malaysia.” A BN Minister created 2 Bankruptcy Acts instead of only ONE, YB !

    2. His aide put more fuel to the fire. Quote. ” This is Putrajaya’s official line !” OMG.

    3. A New Bill to stop bottom pinching.

    4. A New Bill to save the lives of murderers. A small girl was murdered today in Langkawi. A few weeks ago, another young girl was murdered in Pekan.

    5. Quote. ” After 60 years of BN rule, it takes time to correct the System.” It is the digits or cohorts which mis-managed or manned the System, not the System, Madam.

    6. The wife trailed the hubby to the negotiating table in China.

    7. ‘Plant bamboo and pineapples’. It was only a suggestion so said the Minister for Primary Commodities. Sorry, Mr Lee Kong Chian of Pontian fame and FIMA in Johor under Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and respected Tan Sri Basir Ismail.

    8. Nursery in the Dewan Rakyat. Who is going to buy those pacifiers and baby napkins YB ?

    9. A RM 1 Million toy plane for two which is not meant for sale to the public ! Shades of Popular Science reports of failures since 1947 !

    10. A Minister demoted himself to be the Vice-Chancellor and many more.

    11. In Semenyih, it was a new hospital to be built before the By – Election. But after the event, it is only to be a clinic !

    12. On the Tunnel, quote, ” Watch your words. I sue.” How to sue without words spoken ?

    As I hope the New and Incorruptible Government will govern for the next 61 years, let us all realise that may be we let our frontal lobes of the brain do the job first before words come out of our mouths.

    How many Malaysians noticed your style Tun ? Attack is the best defence. The cheeky journalists always lost.

    How could a YB be a lesser soul than a journalist with all due respect ?

    All the YB quoted here were put on the back foot by the journalists with promptings from their Opposition editors to catch them in delicto flagrante if possible (shades of CSL) and later highlighted as farce. Let us hope its not the Land of Scandals become the Land of Farce.

    Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem if the YBs use their frontal lobes first instead of shooting off with their mouths. Acheh ! For the next 61 years YBs !

    It is time for Singapore to stop their practices of the 20th Century on 21st Century Malaysia with a New and Incorruptible Government which will rule for the next 61 years ! Here are more facts to rebut ‘ THE CHOICE WORDS OF DR VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN.’

    1. GOLD. If Lee Kuan Yew had considered ALL THE OPTIONS IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST OF SINGAPORE AND NOT BUTTERED UP IN HIS PERSONAL INTEREST ( he was honest but his vanity and narcissism were bad for a Statesman ) BY THE GNOMES OF ZURICH WHICH MAY INFLUENCE THE WORLD’S FINANCIAL MARKETS, he would have ploughed all his Cold War Black Trades Profits into GOLD AT US$ 300 per ounce. He should have used the gnomes instead it was the other way round.

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AFTER THE OCTOBER 2008 WALL STREET CRASH WOULD HAVE BEEN SINGAPORE’S ETERNAL SLAVE FOREVER. How? Cheap loans to weak and corrupt BN Governments which needed more money all the time.

    Singapore would have new businesses in jewellery, gold trading, marts, refineries, secured warehouses, banks, gold bonds and other gold instruments, logistics, and countless of other gold related activities etc. Now its Lend Lease might military has NOTHING TO GUARD.

    ALL AND MORE COULD HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED BY JUST A PHONE CALL !

    By descending down to Wall Street and the City, SINGAPORE’S UNIQUE CAPABLITIES WERE EQUALISED AND REDUCED TO THE SAME LEVEL AS YOU AND ME, TUN.

    These folks could brainwash naïve Malaysians. But they could not see the vital fact that they could be BRAINWASHED TOO BY THE GNOMES. An ancient saying, ‘ There is always a higher mountain.’

    GOLD COULD HAVE BEEN THE NIRVANA AND SAVIOUR FOR SINGAPORE. BUT WEAKNESS OF RESOLVE, VANITY, LACK OF INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE OF THE WILES OF THE DENIZEN OF THE WORLD BROUGHT ABOUT SINGAPORE’S DOWNFALL TODAY.

    With just 4,000 tons of Gold, Singapore would have been up there with the United States with 7,000 tons, Germany 4,000 tons, France and Italy 3,000 tons, China and Russia 2,000 tons, India 1,000 tons official.

    It was as SIMPLE as this for Lee Kuan Yew to achieve DOMINANCE WITH THE POWER OF GOLD. He read too many tomes from Kino or Borders ! IT’S THE ABILITY TO THINK LIKE YOU TUN THAT MAKES THE WORLD GOES ROUND AND ROUND !

    2. THE SINGAPOREAN ELITES FORGOT ABOUT LEE KUAN YEW’S GOODWILL AND CREDITS WITH THE SUPERPOWERS FOR 25 YEARS ! Something is wrong somewhere.

    This wonderful asset is as yet un-utilised. Soon the value will diminish in value as time goes by.

    With the dangerous and expensive obsession with Malaysia, this is the price the Singaporean elites have to pay in their zero sum game.

    My suggestion has always been, for the Singaporean elites, that there is a brand new wonderful NEW WORLD OUT THERE IN THE 21ST CENTURY ! And it is inside the deep recesses of their brains ! Besides, Malaysia is now one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia – through the brilliance and courage of just one person, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad !

    AND WITH THE CHINA GREATER BAY PROJECT, SINGAPORE CAN ONLY BE AGAIN REDUCED IN VIRTUAL SIZE AND INFLUENCE IN TIME BY ITSELF !

    3. It is short-sighted for any Malaysian Government worth its weight in salt NOT TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION IN THE RAKYAT’S INTERESTS THUS :

    ” NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE SOLD, EXPORTED OR TRANSPORTED OUT OF THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE.”

    The States are not involved. A new business in treated water springs up amongst the States !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem when we have all the basic facts in hand and consider matters in a Fourth Dimension manner !

    This morning as soon as I switched on the lights, the resident bulbul began to chirp and sing. The urbanised golden oriole followed with its plaintive and haunting cry from its perch in a high tree.

    I have yet to hear the pleasant sound of the night jar’s tick-tock at night which used to speed me to a sound slumber in my boyhood years right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. And then, of course, the wandering musang which thrived in the Lake Gardens and its environs of Kuala Lumpur.

    As the years go by, all vestige of fauna will be gone and replaced with solid concrete and corrupt bumps courtesy of DBKL which dutifully also put up plastic Bunga Raya and kutupat as replacement. Most other countries hang up flowering plants on lamp-posts like geraniums etc – real and colourful.

    And this morning’s headlines were scarce but no less important and eye-catching, thus :-

    1. ” KHAZANAH SUFFERS FIRST LOSS ”

    2. ” MALAYSIA SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND MARK US$ 1.5 BILLION LOSS OVER IMPAIRMENTS. ”

    3. ” S’PORE SUCCESSES DUE TO M’SIA SUPPLYING WATER ? VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN HAS CHOICE WORDS FOR MAHATHIR.”

    On headlines 1 and 2, my kudos to the Chief of Khazanah that the cat is finally out of the bag which is years of HIDDEN LOSSES INCURRED BY KHAZANAH ARE FINALLY BROUGHT TO LIGHT IN ORDER TO START WITH A CLEAN SLATE.

    The latter phrase is a favourite phrase of accountants. I learnt this from a MCA fellow who went to jail from abusing his trust. And when he was in trouble, he pretended to be poor but concomitantly remitted via my friend S$ 100 Million from Singapore to Hong Kong. Some billionaires even lent him some money !

    WITHOUT A CLEAN SLATE, WITH THE HIDDEN LOSSES ALL ARE PROVIDE FOR, KHAZANAH WOULD BE IN DEEP TROUBLE WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT ITS REAL AND TRUE POSITION IS FINANCIALLY. This is exactly the same situation with the New and Incorruptible Government and its Ministry of Finance.

    In the first place, Khazanah should not exist like Temasek of Singapore which is a faulty model. Secondly, Khazanah was established during Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s first tenure for an entirely different reason. Thirdly, KHAZANAH CANNOT BE CALLED A SOVEREIGN FUND.

    SOVEREIGN FUND WAS COINED BY THE WESTERN MEDIA IN THE YEARS BEFORE THE HORRIFIC CRASH OF TEMASEK IN OCTOBER 2008 WITH A LOSS OF US$ 108 BILLION TO BUTTER UP LEE KUAN YEW BY THE GNOMES OF ZURICH IN THE WESTERN MEDIA.

    All knew there are only 3 GENUINE SOVEREIGN FUNDS eg. Canada Heritage Fund was the first which was established in the early 1970s for the sole purpose of saving money from the depletion of its natural resources. Norway and Kuwait followed.

    Sovereign was a word cunningly used to butter-up Lee Kuan Yew’s Temasek which funds came from the CPF via the HDB, Government coffers etc. or profits from the dark trades in arms from the Cold War 1948-1989. Singapore has no NATURAL RESOURCES how to call Temasek or GIC as equivalents to Canada, Norway or Kuwait.

    With this background information on the Bluffology or BS of Singapore on Sovereign Funds, the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with its equally corrupt elites copied the Singapore Model not for the Rakyat’s interests but for their own personal interest like astronomically high salaries, all human desires were paid by the GLCs and as long as there was money to be made for their personal pockets eg there were deals from Flying Eagles to orchid farms in Rawang.

    The best the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great can do with the corrupted GLCs is to sell the whole lot at the right price because the Government guarantees with hidden liabilities will be cumbersome sooner or later.

    A Government has no business to be in business making money for the Rakyat. THIS IS JUST AN EXCUSE TO BE CORRUPT AND WALLOP MONEY BIG TIME !

    On the wonderful ways of Singapore making money for itself which were publicised far and wide in the 20th Century by Lee Kuan Yew, WITHOUT THE DISCOVERY OF HIS ILLEGAL BLACK TRADES IN ARMS, MONEY LAUNDERING, TOADYING UP TO DICTATORS, SANCTIONS BREAKING, COLLECTING FREE VIETNAM WAR DEBRIS, SMUGGLING, US R & R, BUNKERING AND BASE FACILITIES ETC, the whole World did really believe in his brilliant achievements which one could see in Singapore, the glittering skyscrapers etc !

    But history is the finest arbiter of the TRUTH.

    How come a sleepy colonial entreport employing coolies in Keppel Harbour, made more money than Singapore today chock-a-block with skyscrapers and World class facilities ? How ?

    Old Singapore of the 20th Century made 2%-3% GDP more without the imported 1.2 Million FTs and a Singapore Cabinet FILLED WITH THE BEST BRAINS OF SINGAPORE PAID AT LEAST S$ 2 MILLION SALARY PER ANNUM PER HEAD ! Ex-Malaysians like Dr Goh Keng Swee, S. Rajaratnam, Yong Nyuk Lin, Ong Pang Boon etc were paid pittance to create that wonderful fizz of a 7% GDP in the old days. From 2002-2017, Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% exclusive of the INFLATION RATE !

    SEE THE POWER OF THE MIND and BRAINWASHING.

    Whatever the present Singaporean Leadership says about Malaysians today IS CORRECT IF THE MALAYSIANS ARE NOT AWARE OF THE NEW INFORMATION ON THE WORKINGS OF SINGAPORE IN THE PAST WHICH WERE WRAPPED UP IN BLUFFOLOGY OR BS.

    The real Facts about Singapore’s success which must ultimately depends on a constant and plentiful supply of Water, are :-

    The 47 Failed Public Policies of Lee Kuan Yew 1965-2015. Vide chedet.cc.org Archives ‘ Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’ Sept. 2010.

    1, The Creation of the Anti Cambridge Godless Neo-communistic Political and Socio-economic System without the knowledge of the citizens. Prominent Indians Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen and TJS George were openly against this authoritarian System.

    2. The Cruel and Thoughtless 2 Child-Family Policy 1972-1984. Now Singapore has 900,000 Chinese aged 21-50. Vide Singapore Government’s White Paper on Population 2011. LEE KUAN YEW HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS from, suicides, abortions, etc.

    3. The Thaksin Purchase. This caused Free Thailand to split into two bitter factions which resulted in deaths and injuries to innocent Thai men, women and children. LEE KUAN YEW HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS.

    4. Strangely, the Malaysia Policy is still being promoted by his inheritors today.

    It is based on the stupidity, corrupt and lethargy of Malaysians INCLUDING THE CHINESE according to Lee Kuan Yew !

    Little did Lee Kuan Yew know that it was known he entered Cambridge University at the bottom-most non-college Fitzwilliam House by CHEATING WITHOUT THE REQUISITE LATIN OR GREEK, DID NOT TAKE THE OPEN ENTRANCE, AND OVER-AGED AT 23 ! He was LAST at the important London Bar Finals. His wife was 3rd out of 300. Later my wife was 7th out of 700.

    5. His brother’s second wife had a piece of paper which she converted into BILLIONS OF RINGGITS VIA THE ATM MAYBANK/KIM ENG SECURITIES CAPER. Someone is now a VICE-CHANCELLOR.

    6. Out of 5,000 pigs permitted to be imported into Singapore in the 1990s, LEE KUAN YEW’S THIRD BROTHER COULD IMPORT 2,000 PIGS DAILY BESIDE HAVING FLOWER NURSERIES TO SUPPLY FRIENDS (shades of DBKL) AND A PARTNERSHIP IN SHARE-BROKER JACOB BALLAS. He was only a lowly Singapore policeman a DSP once. Let us not forget, Singapore is a major financial centre with dealings in equities a major activity. It was alleged that the 3,000 pigs quota from the 5,000 pigs were farmed out to other relatives.

    7. Lee and Lee, Advocated & Solicitors specialised in CONVEYANCING concerning Indonesians and other foreigners. It was alleged in 1972, the firm was making S$ 2 Million a year !

    8-47 Failed Policies of Lee Kuan Yew which of course include the TRADES IN ARMS, ETC WHICH I MENTIONED ABOVE.

    The SUCCESS OF SINGAPORE WHICH WAS WITHOUT DOUBT PUSHED HER FROM THE THIRD WORLD TO THE FIRST BY FREE MALAYSIAN WATER AND THE HUGE AND PROFITABLE BLACK ARMS TRADE AND OTHERS – HUGE PROFITS FLOODED INTO A PLACE WITH LESS THAN 2 MILLION 1960s TO 1980s GOVERNED BY A STRICT AND HONEST GOVERNMENT. My congratulations !

    It was only in the early 1990s that there was talk about FTs with the hidden intent to push the GDP after the collapse of the Black Trades.

    BUT LEE KUAN YEW WAS THOROUGHTLY BUTTERED UP BY THE GNOMES OF ZURICH AND LOST A HUGE SUM OF MONEY BY BEING AN ORDINARY INVESTOR AFTER DESCENDING FROM THE LOFTY HEIGHTS OF THE GIC WITH SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    He behaved under such circumstances mesmerised by the gnomes and nearly lost all. Singapore is now in the hands of the gnomes as long as she exposes herself to the vicissitudes of the common market place and does NOT BEHAVE LIKE A SOVEREIGN STATE WITH NATIONAL INTEREST TO PROTECT. The difference between Men and Boys is the quality of their toys !

    Concomitantly, our beloved Malaysia was screwed by a Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership and its equally corrupt elites which knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT MONEY, DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Congratulations on Khazanah ! You have the COURAGE TO BITE THE SILVER BULLET. This is the Way to go Tun ! YOUR WAY ! This is actually one of the many SECRETS of GOOD MANAGEMENT ! Acheh !

    We must now acknowledge that the sing-along every morning beginning 6.50 a.m. is now a normal occasion. I am glad and happy that the bulbuls and the urbanised golden oriole do not feel threatened and made my neighbourhood their homes. One good thing leads to another.

    This morning I woke up and had the feeling that the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side is and will be the only chance for a Government of decency and normality to LEAD THE COUNTRY FOR ANOTHER 61 YEARS ! Apart from this, I do not see anyone suitable at the present time. Why ? You all forgot, ugh ?

    1. THE FIRST GENERATION OF MALAY ELITES WERE WIPED OUT WITH THE BMF AFFAIR – 1980-83. Only ONE indomitable elite survived

    2. THE SECOND GENERATION OF MALAY ELITES WERE WIPED OUT WITH THE RENONG AFFAIR – 1990-1997

    3. THE THIRD GENERATION OF MALAY ELITES WERE WIPED OUT WITH THE DANAHARTA AFFAIR. 2004-2018. Only one survived, a Christ’s man (Christ’s College, Cambridge) !

    The common traits concerning their failures were women, money and travel in large doses. As all doctors will say,’ You may do anything but do not abuse the privilege.’ Singapore and bad Chinamen were involved somewhere, somehow, sometime.

    HENCE, THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE IS THE ONE AND ONLY CHANCE FOR US MALAYSIANS IF WE DO NOT WANT CHAOS AND DESTRUCTION TO BECOME REFUGEES WHICH NEARLY HAPPENED VIA THE TPPA/CPTPP THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER ! It is the CONSTITUTION THAT MATTERS TOGETHER WITH THE YANG DI-PERTUAN AGONG AND THE ROYAL SULTANS WHICH HOLD OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TOGETHER !

    As my billionaire friend with the Remington franchise from Beach Road, Singapore once told me a long time ago, ” We have only 2 legs. When the horse of opportunity comes, you must jump on it. Otherwise, you will never be able to catch it again as we only have 2 legs.’ To cut this short, OPPORTUNITY ONLY KNOCKS ONCE NOT TWICE.”

    The New and Incorruptible Government with its Ministers has the opportunity to make good by working as a TEAM in the National Interest by being in CONTROL FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS. It is my fervent belief that THIS IS POSSIBLE WITH NORMAL ADMINISTRATION by those who only seek GLORY and NOT MONEY. Those who have MONEY in mind, please resign and do business.

    And which are the key Ministries ?

    Definitely not the Ministry of Finance because in a normal administered country, this Ministry is the most boring and colourless – this should be so.

    In Malaysia, the most important Ministries are those connected with TOURISM, NATURAL RESOURCES, HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND WELFARE, E-BIZ with SECURITY as an adjunct. These provide the potential and opportunities for the Rakyat and their children as they ascend the gravy train in a NORMAL COUNTRY.

    THE GOVERNMENT MUST NOT ONLY LOOK AFTER AND PROVIDE FOR THEIR WELFARE BUT PLAN THE STEPS AHEAD FOR THEM. Easier said than done.

    All countries provided lower salaries to public leaders and their civil servants augmented by perks because of the POWER they hold. To be fair to the peoples, you cannot have the cake (POWER) and eat it too (USE POWER TO MAKE OR STEAL MONEY). That’s DEMOCRACY WITH A CAPITAL D !

    See the wanton abuse of the POWER given to the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and BN Government and its equally corrupt elites ! And all these happened in a small country like Malaysia ! It was ultimate horror of horrors ! At the end of the day, none of them was remorseful.

    But with a Normal and Motivated Mind-set, the New and Incorruptible Government and its Ministers can do the job of serving the Rakyat NORMALLY AND BELIEVE THEY CAN BE IN POWER FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS AND NOT 61 MONTHS !

    This Government is the best and only CHANCE left for our beloved Malaysia to make good the promise of being one of the 4 important small countries of the World, Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. With Malaysia on the way upwards to the Greats of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. IF THESE COUNTRIES COULD DO IT, SO CAN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    We must have self-respect, confidence and motivation, and must not think that the grass is greener on the other side or an ISRAELI BETTER THAN A MALAYSIAN.

    NOW WITH THE NEW INFORMATION ON THE REAL SINGAPORE WITH ITS COLD-WAR ARMS TRADING NOW LOST TO THE BRICS, BLUFFOLOGY OR BS, ONLY 900,000 CHINESE MALES AGED 21-51, A DEAD GDP FOR 16 YEARS FROM 2002-2018, AND NO NEW RABBITS OUT OF THE HAT SINCE THE FAILURE OF THE 4 INITIATIVES eg TEMASEK, FT IMPORTS, 2 CASINOS, TPPA/CPTPP THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER, LEE KUAN YEW FEET WERE MADE OF CLAY WITH 47 FAILED PUBLIC POLICIES, can anyone propose otherwise ?

    Malaysia with the present opportunity should now strengthen its legal System beginning with the Constitution by amending it thus :

    ” NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE SOLD, TRANSPORTED OR EXPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE.”

    State rights are not affected as treated water is not involved.

    THIS CREATES A NEW INDUSTRY FOR THE STATES TO MAKE MONEY FOR ITS RAKYAT BY WAY OF TREATING AND SELLING THE WATER TO ANYONE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Malaysia is an interesting country to be ruled over by the New and Incorruptible Government for the next 61 years, not 61 months !

    It is always a good time for a New and Incorruptible Government to assume POWER and reset the whole Agenda with forward looking Policies which benefit the Rakyat only. And the time to do it is now.

    With all the little political bickerings and skirmishes aside, I find socio-economic endeavours in broad strokes stimulating and interesting. Here are some headlines which popped up today :-

    1. ” TO PLANT BAMBOO AND PINEAPPLES WAS ONLY A SUGGESTION SO SAID A YB MINISTER ”

    From a Minister responsible for the export of major commodities, this sounds funny because for decades Government after Government had urged small-holders to plant fruits, vegetables or what have you without due consideration to the markets which must govern the profitability and ease of production of these agricultural produce.

    It is a wonder to me why agro-based produce never took off under the aegis of the Governments but the Private Sector seems to do quite well on their own like ginger, pepper, cocoa and other produce.

    Something must be wrong somewhere. Is is Corruption again or just lip-service ?

    Thailand made huge advances in their agricultural practices. Soon to be followed by Vietnam and Indonesia. May be our small-holders are not provided with back-up advice and services for the rainy day which must come in the agricultural industry.

    2. ” Malaysia China sign US$ 891 Million of palm oil purchase deal.’

    This is kudos to the Government. A headline like this warms my heart. But a swallow does not make an Indian Summer.

    Palm oil competes against at least 8 other edible oils on the Planet.

    This is an area where all out efforts should be focussed all the time as there are unexpected detractors against the palm oil.

    Up-to-date information culled every day and the Minister/ Ministry should not react when it is too late.

    Just look at the absurdity of Richard Branson’s statement on the abolishment of the death penalty in favour of it whilst in the same breathe his liberal minded contemporaries condemn the clearing of forests for oil palm planting for the betterment of the poor countries and their peoples concerned. These folks did the same centuries ago.

    Western media plays an important part in swaying public opinion in the West which has as many ignorant people as in the East.

    And the Minister must never forget that no one owns our beloved Malaysia a free lunch because there is no such thing like a free lunch in this World.

    Just look at Singapore impoverished of ALL NATURAL RESOURCES EVEN WATER.

    In other words, our thinking must never be numbed by complacency.

    Sell the palm oil to all and sundry, India, Middle East, Africa, China and East Asia, Europe and America. Sell high or low, just to keep the momentum going and flood out all the other oils while the going is good. Good luck !

    3. ” Policy to attract clusters of Japanese SMEs to come to Sabah, Sarawak or the FTZs as part of their production chain. ” This is my self- created headline.

    There is a wide open opportunity for the Government to invite a major Japanese group/s like Mitsui to promote and organise a chain of SMEs to set up shop in Sabah, Sarawak or the FTZs provided there are guarantees for 30 years, cheap land, public facilities sited near major towns like Kota Kinabalu or Kuching which have no problem with logistics.

    The frequent floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, high labour and land costs in Japan will be attractive for part of the Japanese manufacturing chains to come to Malaysia.

    This should be the feather in our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir’s cap

    – TO UPSCALE MALAYSIA WITH A SME CHAIN FROM A DEVELOPED COUNTRY WHICH MAY BE JAPAN, CHINA, SOUTH KOREA, OR EVEN INDIA.

    Malaysia still has lands for this purpose and the FTZs too.

    The Minister for Entrepreneurs not of Entrepreneurs would do very well working on this to fill this gap in our economy instead of toying about with toy planes with the kids wasting RM 1 Million in the process.. IT IS THE BROAD STROKES WHICH COUNT TO MAKE UP THE BROAD PICTURE !

    How happy we will be when these SME CLUSTERS POP UP IN SABAH, SARAWAK AND THE FTZs !

    And to make these clusters successful, these can all be done AT MINIMAL COSTS CHEAPLY AND QUICKLY ! WHO WOULD NOT VOTE FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AGAIN IN THE 15TH GE ?

    4. ” MAZLEE PROMISES TO RESTORE RM 250 BOOK VOUCHERS FOR STUDENTS ”

    Kudos to my favourite YB Minister who is never short of ideas. At least he is seen to make an effort except for that Kim Eng Securities/Maybank caper. Our favourite YB Minister learns quickly from mistakes.

    THIS IS PROGRESS UNLIKE SOME WHO SAID THEY NEVER MAKE A MISTAKE IN THE LIVES ! These folks never left their cradles.

    I love books and libraries since young.

    All schools should have big libraries and the rural and new villages augmented by mobile libraries in keeping with our development and service to the Rakyat.

    Look at all those billions of stolen ringgits which went for self-enjoyment by BN Leaders who were voted in by the Rakyat ! Corrupt and uncaring !

    Dormitories should be attached to major SMKs in towns for the children attending secondary schools from the kampongs or the new villages.

    We must up-grade our education facilities for all Rakyat in a cheap and rational way. There should be no more lip-service anymore.

    I am certain our YB Minister has his heart in the right place. Kudos to him. Books, books, books for kids from the Primary Sekolahs and on would be a good Policy !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Back to selling palm oil and other products in a NORMAL MANNER IS THE WAY TUN ! Your Way !

    On this Monday morning all the birds have come to nest with the pair of bulbuls in full-song and the urbanised golden oriole in accompaniment. All this music began at 6.50 a.m. No one is going to stop these feathered friends from their sing-a-long because they have never heard of Monday blues. Their songs cleared my head for the new week ahead.

    How can any one miss the headlines these days ?

    1. ” GREATER BAY AREA THREATEMS SOMGAPORE FINANCE AND TECH STATUS.”

    2. ” MOHD. REDZUAN : BIG NAMES HAVE COME KNOCKING OVER FLYING CAR PROJECT. ”

    3. ” ECONOMY WILL RECOVER AT YEAR’S END.”

    1. Singapore has been under threat since the end of the Cold War when she lost the very profitable Black Under Counter Trades of arms trading, sanctions breaking, money-laundering etc to the BRICS.

    To be precise, the loss was 2%-3% of the GDP which was exposed by 2002 with the first technical recession. Since 2002, Singapore economy has not recovered – 2002-2019. Singapore elites are still talking on projects which are either greenfield or experimental. None of those big revenue earners of the Cold War like arms trading, sanctions breaking, money laundering etc of the Cold War will ever return again.

    Even the Singapore Stock Exchange is way below the Hong Kong Stock Exchange which is highly liquid to attract more and more investors.

    With all economic indicators sliding downwards, Singapore is now hit by the biggest rival of all the Greater Bay Area which consists of Guangdong, Macau and Hong Kong with a population of more than 70 million, ranging from capitalism to authoritarianism.

    This Concept can only succeed at the expense of Singapore which lost her opportunity by creating the TWIN MALAY THREATS OF INDONESIA AND MALAYIS AS BOGEYMEN. The dog in the manger attitude of Lee Kuan Yew in ASEAN for over 30 years who did nothing for Singapore vis-a-vis ASEAN because of his uppity ways.

    Time and money were spent chasing a mirage to do down Malaysia which failed miserably.

    Because after all his efforts using the resources of the State of Singapore, MALAYSIA IS STILL STANDING STRONG, PROUD AND CONFIDENT.

    Not only that Malaysia is now one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. With the New and Incorruptible Government, Malaysia is fast trekking upwards towards the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    Lee Kuan Yew’s obsession with Malaysia was dangerous in the sense that he took the wrong route. This was disastrous because it failed despite his efforts to conjure 4 INITIATIVES to put down Malaysia and pull up Singapore for his inheritors.eg. the ill-conceived Temasek, the 2 casinos, the FT imports and the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP. All failed.

    Without a life-boat in a tumultuous sea and without its natural resource BLUFFOLOFY OR BS in support, Singapore’s future is very bleak.

    With wisdom, the correct Singapore route would have been to form ASEAN like the GREATER BAY AREA PROJECT IN SINGAPORE’S INTERESTS. But with the funny attitude that BLACK IS BLACK, WHITE IS WHITE ONLY FOR MALAYSIA, how ?

    And from the sublime to the ridiculous, Singapore’s elite forgot for over 25 years about the subject of their eternal adoration, Lee Kuan Yew’s credits and goodwill with the World which may be utilised to Singapore’s advantage. With time this valuable asset will diminish in value. This is one of the fall-outs from the dangerous obsession with Malaysia. The cost is incalculable ! The Time and Money lost !

    3. All the media pundits claim that there will be a slow down for Malaysia this 2019. What are the causes of the slow down ? thus :-

    1. The fractured UMNO-Private Business Sector Nexus. This has been broken and caused a lot of dismay and hair-tearing.

    2. The constant loss of manufactured goods markets to rivals because the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites did nothing to show the way for the Rakyat to make money from 2004-2018. They were walloping so much of the Rakyat’s money that they had no time to develop inclusive Policies for the good of all eg.exclisive mega projects in KL etc.

    4. The lack of real industrial projects which should have been created over 30 years ago now show because of political constraints.

    5. General World trading trends and patterns.

    6. Domestic Political Sentiment/Unhappiness of local and foreign investors. If the Fed takes a more aggressive stance to balance its books, watch-out all stock and commodities exchanges !

    However, I am of the opinion that as long as the New and Incorruptible Government gets its act together and avoid gaffes or shooting themselves in the foot with toy planes or make oneself the Vice-Chancellor or have a nursery in the august halls of the Dean Rakyat etc, the general economy will improve if the Government re-examines similar scenarios in the 1980s and the 1990s ! Where to stimulate ? How to stimulate ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Before I finished talking, THE CARPETBAGGERS TURNED UP BY THE DROVES CONCERNING THE TOY PLANE AS CONFIRMED BY OUR YB DATO SERI REDZUAN YUSOF. I assume he has not heard of the still-born Melaka plastic plane or Sime Darby was in bed with Boeing or stories of this ilk ? I like to suggest that a better way which is not so glamorous is to encourage Malaysian cuisines to link up with the Tourist and the Halal Export Business. And to promote e-biz for the young who are qualified but may not have a university degree. There are so many opportunities for our YB to make good. But the toy plane is sure to crash in flames if it ever flies !

    In recent weeks or whenever the opportunity occurred, the Singapore Government Leadership has been saying, ” MALAYSIA DID NOT REQUEST A REVIEW IN 1987 ” This is true, very true.

    Now let us put our thinking caps on and look upon this fact within the context of all which can and could happen in Singapore over the course of time. History is the finest arbiter of the TRUTH. And we are talking about important matters at the highest and loftiest levels of human endeavours which are about Governments of States in question.

    1. IT IS ALLEGED THAT GERMAN AND AUSTRALIAN DRUG MULES CONVICTED AND GIVEN THE DEATH PENALTY IN SINGAPORE WERE RELEASED WITHOUT A SQUEAK BY THE GOVERNMENT OF SINGAPORE. Australia and Germany are deemed to be might States and not to be bullied by the tiny State of Singapore.

    The Principle of the Rule of Law which has been so steadfastly maintained by the Singapore Government when it suited them, was broken in more ways than one. Sauce for the gander. Nothing for the goose.

    The fact was the Laws of Singapore were broken by the Government themselves. Both the Australian and the German should have been hanged until dead like all the others before or after them according to existing Singaporean Laws.

    But it is alleged double standards were practised by the Singapore Government.

    2. IN COMPARISON, THE SINGAPOREAN LEADERSHIP KEPT ON HARPING ON LEE KUAN YEW’S DICTAT THAT MALAYSIA DID NOT REQUEST FOR A REVIEW OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT IN 1987. The prerogative of this request rested with Malaysia which did not do so in the INTERESTS OF COMITY OR FOR REASONS OF ITS OWN.

    If the drug mules could be released scot- free against the prescribed laws of Singapore, WHY MUST IT BE DIFFERENT WITH A REASONABLE AND LOGICAL REQUEST TO REVIEW THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT BY MALAYSIA WHICH NOW RIDES THE HIGH HORSE OF MORALITY !

    (i) Because Malaysia did not request a Review in 1987, IT MEANT SINGAPORE GAINED BY WAY OF THE 3 SEN PER ONE THOUSAND GALLONS FROM 1987 TO 2019 – another 32 years of undeserved profits. This was another 32 years of profits instead of trying to label the Malaysian Government of being neglectful or whatever as insinuated !

    (ii) For Malaysia to request a Review in 2019 IS NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY BUT A REASONABLE AND LOGICAL REQUEST. FOR SINGAPORE TO DENY THIS IS NOT ONLY UNFAIR BUT IMMORAL PROFITEERING AT THE EXPENSE OF A POOR NATION ! No one in this World can deny Malaysia’s logical and reasonable request which is now accused with snide remarks of all descriptions. As the late Tun Ismali Mohd. Ali Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia sometimes said, ‘IT STINKS’

    (iii) The whole World knows that Malaysia is now poor and facing hard times. Malaysia with good reason and intention, permitted a non-Review in 1987 so that Singapore could thrive because the Leadership knew at that time water was not the main issue between friendly Nations like Malaysia and Singapore.

    (iv) The late split of the Stock Exchange in 2000 was another example of goodwill and understanding by Malaysia, as if Malaysia did not know about the yo-yo hanky panky which operated out of the unofficial-dom of Singapore as engineered by Dr Goh Keng Swee.

    (v) Further, the dally rejoinders from the Singaporean Leadership smacked of thoughtless and superficial considerations probably based on its perceived belief of long ago that the Malaysians are corrupt, stupid and lazy.

    But they forgot that in the World of e-biz, all are EQUALISED ! Hence, the Singapore of today is struggling with its economy UNLIKE THE SINGAPORE OF YESTERDAY !

    (vi) As I said before, SINGAPORE APPLIES ONE LAW FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD AND ANOTHER FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ! I do not know the reason for this. The Singaporeans are the best people to explain why this is so !

    TO KEEP ON HARPING THAT MALAYSIA DID NOT REQUEST FOR A REVIEW OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT IS IMMORAL AND ILLOGICAL UNBECOMING A SELF-PROCLAIMED CITY STATE AS THE 1ST OR 2ND IN THE WORLD FOR MOST THINGS.

    But where is the Humanity with Compassion which are important
    attributes to a successful State but operated on double standards in without considering all matters within the context of time and history ?

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES ! What happens if due to CLIMATE CHANGE MALAYSIA HAS NO WATER TO DELIVER TO SINGAPORE ? This is an act of God and not an act by the Malaysians. How ?

    It is obvious now that WATER IS THE MOST PRECIOUS COMMODITY FOR HUMANKIND, THEREFORE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA SHOULD CONSERVE, SAFEGUARD AND PROTECT ITS WATER RESOURCE FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS, thus :-

    Amend the Constitution, ‘ NO UNTREATED OR RAW WATER MAY BE SOLD, EXPORTED OR TRANSPORTED OUT OF THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. We must always realise that the tiny isle of Singapore is always on the back foot ! NO BLUFFOLOGY OR BS FOR US, WE ARE MALAYSIANS !

    On this Sunday morning when all is calm and quiet, a thought constantly plagued my mind. It is the stupendous 403% profit made by IHH in just one quarter of the calendar.

    This gives rise to more questions than answers. Why ?

    This was what I have been doing in my LIFE – RESTRUCTURING THE BIGGEST COMPANIES IN THE LAND SCREWED UP BY CROOKS ! Here is the list :-

    1. 1964-1970 – Restructure my own family business racked by corruption and lethargy.
    2. 1966-1968 – I initiated the first take-over of a listed company on the Stock Exchange and restructured it.
    3. 1972-1975 – With the support of Tun Abdul Razak the Prime Minister and his aide, YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, my concept of 1972 was not only to give the Malays with 2% of the Malaysian, a BIG BUSINESS but also to RESTRUCTURE IT which was done eventually.

    For this effort in the National Interest and fair-play for all, I was called ‘A MALAY BUM-SUCKER’ BY THE MCA TYPES WHO EVENTUALLY ENDED UP IN JAIL ! For 18 years as a non- executive Director of Sime Darby, my emoluments before tax was RM 500,000 ! There was no SCANDAL AND BANKRUPTCY IN SIME DARBY UNTIL I WAS KICKED OUT BY THE EXECUTIVES WHOSE JOBS I CREATED FOR THEM ! They were holding lowly jobs before Sime Darby which was bankrupted by them at RM 1.2 Billion in 1996 and RM 2.10 Billion in 2010. They carried on regardless. No one was charged. No one was jailed.

    4. 1975-1984 -. MIDF and the Consortium of 5 banks, HSBC, Chartered, Bangkok Bank, UMBC invited me to restructure the BIGGEST CORPORATE SCANDAL IN THE 1970s – Folex Industries Berhad. This took me 9 years with a salary of RM 7,000 per month and an Alfa Romeo. I made millions of ringgits for the shareholders. At the end, the MIDF Consortium got back all their loans and walked away as though nothing happened even though I was the last Managing Director who did not run away after 2 weeks. I stayed for 9 years managing this textile factory with 1,200 Malay workers on 3 shifts in peace and harmony in a BN/MCA Constituency of Taiping.
    5. 1979-1982.- MTI was taken over by me for RESTRUCTURING.
    6. 1988-1990 – Renong was taken over by me for RESTRUCTURING. This saved a major political organisation in turmoil ! The new owner did not consult me who created the horse, how to ride it because he was in irrelevant exuberance and was in the wrong Chinese company. He crashed in flames like Icarus and the Sun !
    7. 2000-01. Multi-Purpose was RESTRUCTED BY ME from an idea which I had in 1997 ! Later, little fellows appeared in the media to denigrate me all the time.
    8. Present day, I try to contribute my thoughts for the betterment of our beloved Malaysia from my experience DEALING WITH CROOKS WHO SCREWED UP ALL THE ENTERPRISES WHICH I MENTIONED.

    It is alleged that IHH is like a sore thumb which sticks out against the negative factors which caused the downfall of business enterprises which I have mentioned. Here are the alleged negatives :-

    It is alleged that most Singaporeans who operate out of Singapore in Malaysia do the following in their businesses :-

    (i) Income Tax Evasion – I know of an authentic case which was reported in a Malay Mail Headline in 1974 that a Singaporean plantation company evaded income tax and was fined RM 4 Million. I knew the income tax should have been much higher which was negotiated in JB. By the time these Singaporeans were caught, they were already BILLIONAIRES !

    (ii) Written off ‘B’ goods in Singapore were sold in Malaysian shops owned by Singaporeans.

    (iii) Magazines imported into Malaysia by Singaporean franchisee holders were ONE month late. By chance, I discovered that the magazine-sellers in Singapore collect back all the unsold magazines by the 21st of each month. I asked them why ? They told me this was for distribution to Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

    (iv) The importation of fruits is another cross- border play.

    (v) At least one Singaporean became a BILLIONAIRE by share-rigging out of Batu Pahat before the split of the Stock Exchange in 2000 !

    (vi) Cross-border transactions always provided the loop-hole for negative acts through different jurisdictions which made supervision and monitoring difficult to follow.

    (vii) As my friend the richest Muslim in India told me, ‘ How you price generic drugs when these have no price ?’

    (viii) There were earlier episodes involving the management with Indian investors in Singapore in which as usual Khazanah paid the price.

    (ix) May be as alleged that this is not a tango made for two but 2 Sikhs and one other from the Land of Bluffology or BS !

    My congratulations to Khazanah for divesting s bit of the IHH – the more the better ! May be this is not a Potemkin show coupled with a Ponzi scheme like Madoff of New York in a staid business which investment returns only come through 25 years ! I could be wrong.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem until the FOREIGN CARPETBAGGER ARRIVES !

    Further to my comment that the New and Incorruptible Government should carry out its duties as though it will be in POWER for the next 61 years, out of curiosity I WONDER HOW MANY OF YOUR MINISTERS WITHIN ONE MONTH OF THEIR APPOINTMENTS DID THE FOLLOWING :-

    Arranged a 1 hour appointment to do the following –

    1. Seek your views and vision for the Ministry which they hold ?

    2. Express their views about their own Ministries to you to find out your reactions and more advice.

    3. Give you a monthly thumb-nail sketch of their work and developments in their Ministries as a monthly follow-up for you to keep easy tabs of all Ministries.

    And their Deputy Ministers – DID THEY DO THE SAME TO THEIR MINISTERS ?

    Let us all hope all the above-mentioned points happened and not at Cabinet meetings.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    How many Malaysians realise that you have the greatest opportunity to create a great Nation out of our beloved Malaysia today ?

    From the ashes of Immorality to rise again to the Glory of Morality !

    The opportunity to carve out in stone for all Malaysians and their future Leaders to build on as no Nation could stop and just say the job of Nation building is over and done with. Nation building is ETERNITY !

    Just look at the great United States the greatest Nation on earth.

    Suddenly there comes along a fellow from nowhere but the Bronx and said his Way is the Way to govern and tore up all the Treaties he did not like and threw them into the bin. And France, the home of Freedom, Egalitarianism, Legalities. Yet many people are dissatisfied and in turmoil.

    How many Malaysians are aware that you have the POWER to exert your views and vision, and provide answers for the future generations of Malaysians to come via a tome “MY WAY” in Bahasa, Mandarin Tamil and English ?

    Every great Nation which exists today and in the United Nations had a Leader or Leaders who inspired their peoples by showing them the WAY !

    America had Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy. Nixon, Reagan etc. France had Charles de Gaulle, Germany had Adenauer, Merkel, Britain had Winston Churchill, Thatcher. India Gandhi, Nehru. China Mao, Deng Xiao Peng, Japan Emperor Akihito, Abe, Indonesia Sukarno, Thailand King Bhumiphol, Vietnam Ho Chi Minh and the list goes on.

    It is upon you, Tun, that our beloved Malaysia has the greatest chance to survive this period of reckless abandon to IMMORALITY AND LACK OF SELF-RESPECT AND CONFIDENCE – 2004-2018 due to many negative factors eg. from little instigators in the neighbourhood to Israelis in the Prime Minister’s boudoir !

    Sanity disappeared in a jiffy as things stood between 2004-2018 under the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite.

    Political virtues if any must be stressed for the as yet unborn generations to come.

    It is good if these are supported by the hard evidence of IMMORALITY AND MALFEASANCE IN DISPUTE WITH THE RAKYAT’S TRUST. The many breaches of Trust which were done with the full knowledge that these were wrong but yet were done without due consideration to the wishes of the Rakyat who gave them the POWER.

    After just 7 months for the YBs in the saddle of POWER, all performed as though tomorrow being the next 15th GE as the expiring date.

    My view is that THIS NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE MUST WORK IN UNISON AS THOUGH THIS GOVERNMENT WILL GOVERN FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS ! It is the mind-set which keep the folks together. By by MCA !

    There have been criticisms on SADDIQ’s YOUTH.

    These showed how IGNORANT THESE CRITCS ARE. If they have a medical problem, they do not mind going under the knife of a 24 year old doctor ! See how absurd these critics are within the context of a logical argument. ALL DOCTORS QUALIFIED BETWEEN 24 -25 YEARS OLD !

    You were politically minded as long ago as 1943 ! I was saving the life of a young 12 year old Malay diabetic with collapsed veins from Kampong Baru at midnight with cold sweat and shaking hands at 25 years old !

    IF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT IS IN PLACE IN 61 YEARS TIME, SADDIQ WILL STILL BE A YOUNG 85 YEARS OLD ! No problem.

    However, there will be many more hills and mountains for SADDIQ to climb which I am confident he can do so in time after many pitfalls to come. That’s LIFE with a capital L !

    And one of the first tasks is to clean out the Geriatric and Incompetent Olympic Council of Malaysia because if they did work, our Dato Seri Nicole would have won 4 Gold Medals for Malaysia betwee 2004-2019.
    To show its importance, the Olympic Council of Malaysia was chaired by the great statesman, Tun Abdul Razak himself 1964 -1974. There was no hanky-panky. In 1972, Malaysia won a Gold at a shooting event at the Teheran Asian Games.

    New fangled sports like moguls, free-style skiing etc which were pre-dated by Squash by at least 100 years are now recognised as Olympic sports ! AS IT IS SAID THE ROT BEGINS IN THE FISH HEAD NOT THE BODY !

    The finest legacy by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be his MAGNUM OPUS FOR ALL MALAYSIANS TO TOE THE LINE OF UNITY THROUGH DIVERSITY. No use talking about it by those who only talk and do nothing.

    IT IS NOW OR NEVER FOR MALAYSIANS TO LIVE WORK AND ENJOY TOGETHER.

    This might take 800 years like the Confederation of Switzerland, or 3,000 years like Good Governance Japan or even 5,000 years like Democratic India. But at the end of the day, IT IS VERY WORTHWILE LIKE THE SWISS, THE JAPANESE, THE INDIANS, today !

    Malaysians being upright proud and strong peoples should NOT DESTROY THEMSELVES by desires for women, money and lethargy which ALL CAN DO WITHOUT BEING SPECIAL It is the NORMAL BEHAVIOUR WHICH COUNTS AT THE END OF THE DAY which all Nations of the World have been doing for centuries !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as we now have a Brilliant and Courageous Leader to engrave in stone his VISION for the future of our beloved Malaysia and her generations to come. WE WILL ALL BE THERE !

    After so many years of being told that that the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore is non-negotiable, may be it is time that Malaysia should study the ways and means of protecting its depleting natural resources in the interests of the generations to come.

    The first natural resource is Water which has been the subject of disputes and wars the World over. Without Water, there is no LIFE ! And not many countries are as fortuitous as us Malaysians.

    Now, we waste water with abandon – in offices, malls, public offices, underground pipes along the roads which are still made of asbestos I believe. Copper pipes have been used in Western countries long ago. With corruption and the money so misplaced, public facilities are neglected from water pipes to pot-holes along the roads which are augmented by more and more corrupt DBKL bumps to put more money into the pocket of officials.

    Our children need to be taught about the conservation of water and the fact that without Water, there is no LIFE.

    At the moment, there are short periods of water shortage in certain parts of the country which do not raise an alarm or crisis. But in the future, each State may have to assist one another with water. This is the time to prepare for future contingencies to come. To obviate such crisis, this is the reason why the Rakyat elected the leaders in the first place – to lead and to protect the Rakyat from harm. Here are two performances by one a BN Official and another his successor who took his place.

    1. When the MH17 was shot down over Ukraine, the BN Minister said, ‘ NO ONE ASK US NOT TO FLY THERE.’ By shirking responsibility, 180 innocent lives were lost !

    2. Present day Minister gave the directive to the airlines to avoid Indian and Pakistani air-space. Prevention is better than cure.

    Similarly on the question of the conservation of Water for the use of Malaysians without wastage, we should marshal all YBs in the Dewan Rakyat to amend the Constitution thus :-

    ” NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE SOLD, EXPORTED OR TRANSPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE.’

    This will be your eternal legacy for all generations of Malaysians – to lock in the raw or untreated water for use only by Malaysians.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. It is time Malaysia calls a spade a spade within the context of SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    Surprisingly, the pair of chirping and singing bulbuls were back in the young banyan tree this morning. The wonderful sounds wafted from their nest at least a few minutes before 7 a.m. sharp with the haunting and plaintive cry of the urbanised golden oriole providing the background accompaniment to this duo. What a way for a Malaysian morning to begin ?

    The headlines crackled this morning with their intensity of urgency. The sort of headlines which a person who is interested in current affairs could not avoid.

    1. ” RICHARD BRANSON COMMENDS MALAYSIA ON DECISION TO ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY. ”

    2. ” MALAYSIA DID’NT MEET ITS TOURISM GOAL FOR 018 DUE TO A FALL IN S’PORE VISITORS ”

    3. ” FGV REPORTS RM 1 BILLION LOSS IN FY 18 DUE TO IMPAIRMENTS AND PROVISIONS.”

    4. ” PAYMENT OF RM 550 MILLION TO AES REPORTED TO MACC.”

    5. ” IHH SEES 403% SURGE IN 4Q EARNINGS.”

    1. Richard Branson loves publicity about himself from young and has spent millions of pounds to prove he was a pioneer of many adventuring enterprises.

    However, on his support for the abolishment of the death penalty in Malaysia, he is well-off the mark. As he hardly knows the place and does not reside here at all to see for himself the many young drug addicts Malaysia has and the rampant murders which are not uncommon in this important nexus of crossroads of the World.

    In the United Kingdom, stabbings, acid throwing, bombings, car terrorism, radioactive poisoning, etc take place daily. It was not like this not too long ago. All these incidents happened to the common folk who walk the streets unlike Richard Branson.

    In Malaysia which is still a developing country and has many places undeveloped. The transport system is rudimentary. Many citizens are at risk with an over-stretched PDRM.

    It is all very well to say something nice to the Western liberal media in a cosy salon in London. But the reality is Malaysia has to have the death penalty in the face of rising crimes murders and all. Until Malaysia further develops a few decades down the road, there and then, may be the death penalty could be abolished.

    2. The Singaporean Leadership is keen to gain kudos over Malaysia in its quest for a snap election, a colourless Budget and the urge to have some derring-do involving her contrived and self-created punching bag which is Malaysia.

    They tell us that we were nice and friendly when we lost the rocks due to the tango made for two, the KTM’s huge assets in Singapore which ended up as half of an office building, 1MDB being laundered, Malaysia spends 99% cost of the HSR with compensation for delays and converting the Jurong Golf Club into a mega multi-biilion dollar complex etc.

    Whichever way the dice is tossed, Singapore wins.

    But without a conniving mind, Malaysia is now one of 3 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    And for more tourists to come to Malaysia, our Minister should focus on India, China and the Middle East. After all, Singapore now only has 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011.

    3. It is ridiculous to delude oneself that after a plantation has been corporatized, it is no longer a plantation but something else. All the traditional quide lines to manage it are thrown overboard.

    The key element in the management of a plantation is to build up a cash reserve when the rainy day comes. But the corrupt Management of FGV did the opposite and spent RM 12 Billion from its original RM 6 Billion cash reserve which eventually ended up with a RM 8 Billion debt for the small-holders to carry.

    The corrupt were not aware how much RM 1 Billion is worth to the honest planter or small-holder. Now the FELDA has no money to replant on the current down-turn of commodity prices to take advantage of the up-turn to come. Why Malaysians become CLOWNS in high places is a mystery to me ?

    4. The clownish behaviour of Malaysians in control of billions of ringgits cash which was turned into a stupendous debt of RM 8 Billion at the drop of an oil palm fruit is augmented by a more empty headed crookedness deal in the fact that the Ministry of Defence was purported to have paid RM 550 Million to AES for a system which was officially valued at RM 40 Million. But in fact I reckon its real worth was only RM 4 Million.

    At this rate of corruption, Malaysia could only buy HALF A RUSSIAN SUPER DUPER JET WITHOUT THE ENGINE instead of a squadron of fighting planes.

    No wonder our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad stressed that Singapore is militarily strong in view of their jets which really fly and soot.

    5. This IHH is trying to create waves of excitement by the Singapore CEO who claimed to collect RM 100 Million a year as salary besides other goodies under his control at the expense of the Malaysian Government and its shareholders the Rakyat. LUCKY FELLOW !

    To attain 403% in 1 quarter is better selling snake oil.

    As the British say, ‘ It’s a balls out announcement !’

    BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NEGATIVES IN AN INDUSTRY WHICH IS JUST LIKE THE HOTEL BUSINESS WHICH BASED ITS RETURNS OVER 25 YEARS AND NOT ON ONE SINGLE QUARTER !

    The trick of doing M & As to create TEMPORARY FANTASTIC PROFITS IS AS OLD AS THE SINGAPOREAN HILLS IN MALAYSIA !

    With foreign M & As, and cross border transactions, etc all controlled by one person ? ONE SWALLOW DOES NOT MAKE AN INDIAN SUMMER !

    There are certain parameters which no one CAN ESCAPE IN TIME ! This is not a business like the rocks which required 2 to tango but 3 to tango.

    The New and Incorruptible Government did the right thing by divesting such a nebulous and staid business which has no reason to USE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF THE RAKYAT’S MONEY TO UPGRADE A FOREIGN COUNTRY’S HEALTHCARE in Turkey, India, Singapore, China and Myanmor ! SOMETHING IS WRONG SOMEHWHERE AS MY FRIEND WHO MANUFACTURES INDIAN GENERIC DRUGS SAID !

    And today, a YB announced that a small hospital will be built in SEMENYIH ! WHERE ARE YOU IHH ?

    WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA ?

    Tun, the above headlines raised more questions than answers. As you have commented lately about unity amongst us Malaysians with an allusion towards the politicians now in POWER. Based on your attributes of 100% for INTEGRITY, 100% for CREDIBILITY and 100% for UNITY, I reckon the collective credits for the New and Incorruptible Government are only 40% for INTEGRITY, 30% for CREDIBILITY and 20% for UNITY.

    How ? These disparaging results show their view of their World is only as far as the next GE, just 3 years away. But as I have said before and also in support by your succinct comments on their mind-sets, ALL INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT LEADERS MUST WORK TOWARDS AS THOUGH THEY ARE IN POWER FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS !

    Forward looking with vision creativity and innovation. No sneaky looks at their behinds. Fight with hard-work to keep the POWER STAKES without dithering or with mosquito ideas and minds ! THE BROAD STROKES TO COMPLETE THE BIG PICTURE FOR THE RAKYAT.

    Do not be like the BN Minister of Law who created 2 Bankruptcy Acts and misled over 200,000 young Malays concomitant with another over 200,00 non-Malays.

    One old Act for those bankrupts before October 2017. A new Act for those after October 2017. THIS IS A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE.

    When the 1982 Reform Marriage Act was promulgated, all marriages before 1982 were recognised. This was fair and just. Vide. The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018. THIS LETTER CLAIMED THE BN MINISTER WAS INFLUENCED BY FINANCIAL INTERESTS which dared not do this in Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

    How low could the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites go ? Bully the majority with the POWER of the minority !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as THOSE IN POWER ARE NOT SELF-SERVING IN THEIR OWN INTERESTS BUT IN THE RAKYAT’S INTEREST !

    With so much nonsense swirling around the country these days not on the question of integrity but credibility, that my feathered friend the singing bulbul in the young banyan tree flew away to some quieter haven. As expected, there was not a squeak or a chirp this morning at 7 a.m. sharp. He was AWOL !

    So, my thoughts turned on why our Malaysians when they achieved high places seem to lose their heads, their reasoning and their common sense.

    For example, Tun, you need a hall to accommodate all your Cabinet Ministers with their spouses in tow on the assumption that you did invite them all to attend your classified Cabinet meetings.

    I just cannot get over the fact that a mosquito brain of a Minister suggested to put a nursery in the august Dewan Rakyat with the undeclared intention of buttering up her supporters amongst the journalists, male or female with babes.

    This is an utter waste of the Rakyat’s hard-earned money. And this YB was shouting hoarse in defence of the Rakyat when she had no Rakyat’s money to spend.

    You were able to keep your two feet on the ground, your head in the right place and your 3 sens worth throughout your years in POWER. I know of only one similar case like yours – to be able to keep one’s senses !

    But from the utterances of those YBs who seemed to be out of touch with reality and common sense once they were in the saddle, it seems to belie the fact that they are FROM OR WITH THE RAKYAT for many years !

    Strange, Tun ! What to do with these legally qualified on a piece of paper to be a YB bolstered by the Rakyat’s tax free money !

    Then there was the announcement of spending RM 1 Million on a toy project promoted by unqualified people who claimed to have foreign support which will never take off successfully because others have tried the same in the developed countries since 1947 ! If these fellows ever read Popular Science since 1947 !

    This is a sheer waste of money spent on a project which was specially conjured to con someone.

    What about all those aged, the single mothers, the neglected children and the young addicts etc. These unfortunate souls are part of us and live amongst us every day.

    Where is the compassion from people who hold high positions to influence and benefit the unfortunate like those long suffering fellow citizens whom I just mentioned. RM 1 Million toy planes but not helping the disadvantaged ? Someone must really do his or her A, B, C again !

    And the list goes on and on, mosquito ideas coming from mosquito brains when they have the opportunity to learn and seek advice from the best mentor of all, our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Tun, you know why all these fellows lost their heads ? IT IS THE FLATTERY, THE WONDERFUL DINNERS, THE JOSTLING CROWDS, THE ADULATION, THE ADORATION, ETC WHICH UNHINGED THEM ALL. So easy to sway them.

    Like as a matter of fact, you ask me, ‘Have another piece of cake ?’ I would not because its impolite, ill-mannered, greedy etc. But then this fellow claimed his wife was invited to the official negotiating table between two Governments. This is very much the same thing.

    In accordance with protocol, accreditation, locus standi, etc, madam should have gone shopping or sight-seeing otherwise Singapore will come up with the tale that a Malaysian Cabinet Minister’s wife trailed her husband right to the negotiating table in China.

    After years 0f political sexual peccadilloes of Malaysians 2004-2018, from the Australian bordellos to whatever in China or London or New York or Hollywood, have we not had enough of a very common subject of Humankind which is actually not abnormal at all ? Think !

    I HAVE NOTICED THAT FOREIGN CARPETBAGGERS TURNED UP IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY CHANGE OF THE GOVERNMENT EXCEPT TUN HUSSEIN ONN’S. Rothschild appeared in 1972 through its clients ! In the case of the New and Incorruptible Government, these fellows turned up in the Toy Plane Project which now costs RM 1 Million. I BET MY BOTTOM RINGGIT THAT THIS WILL COST MANY MILLIONS MORE RINGGIT WITHOUT THE PLANE FLYING OFFI MALAYSIAN SOIL. ACHEH ! As our Prof Jomo said ‘ Go and buy a ticket and fly to the East Coast !’ Acheh, man !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ? No problem. Integrity so far is with the New and Incorruptible Government which has to BURNISH ITS CREDIBILITY on propriety, standards, common sense, ethics, protocol, rule of the laws, nepotism, filial piety etc.
    It is time for our Ministers to separate their Law-keeping from their House-keeping Tun ! To be able to be on course for the next 61 years and not be a still-born !
    HAVE YOU NOTICED TUN ? Many pretenders are fond of the MBA which only make only managers by quoting the Sun Tzu ‘The Art of War’. But the 36 Steps Anthology are what make great leaders and tycoons !

    As I was saying this morning on the drop of Malaysia’s ethics, standards, integrity, common sense, logic, propriety etc between 2004-2018, I went on to describe how little things might add up to affect the New and Incorruptible Government of its credibility.

    By mid-day the media was bursting with the news that a Minister’s wife with no locus standing in the Government was photographed sitting at the official negotiating between China and Malaysia. No other country in the World has permitted this to happen.

    This is a breach of protocol whereby a person without locus standi and not officially accredited should not attend official meetings between Governments. Other points to consider are nepotism, propriety, common sense, logic, standards, etc.

    Our beloved Malaysia has been a laughing stock because of leaders with Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes.

    And do we find another set of leaders who are not well-versed with diplomatic protocol and for others given the opportunity to make snide remarks on a wife trailing her husband in China right up to the negotiating table ?

    Do not tell me Tun that you are the only one in our beloved Malaysia who uses your brain all the time !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem until something out of this World happens !

    My friendly song bird the resident bulbul in the young banyan tree was in full song a few minutes before 7 a.m. sharp as if he was on Viagra. I discovered he has a mate too when I saw them frolicking around their nest later in the morning.

    It is good we have flora and fauna in our towns and countryside unlike Lee Kuan Yew who once denuded Singapore without any bird until he was forced to employ a British ornithologist to find out why. The answer was simple. Lee Kuan Yew chopped down all the trees bearing flowers, fruits and worms. The birds flew off to JB !

    It seems to me that the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the new, and the good and the great is now in a crisis of sorts concerning their credibility not integrity.

    Announcements were made off the cuff in haste after being diddled by loaded questions from reporters prompted by their Opposition editors of NSTP, the Star etc. To get a real feel of the past 8 months, here is a list of announcements which reflect on the credibility of the YBs involved.

    1. Black shoes
    2. Swimming pools in hotels
    3, Merging the two science and arts stream – without due consideration ?
    4. A Vice Chancellor who facilitated an over Billion Ringgit Kim Eng Securities deal via Maybank for a piece of paper owned by lee Kuan Yew’s sister-in-law, the second wife of his brother.
    5. To assuage the hardships of teachers without them asking for it.
    6. A New Bill to catch bottom-pinchers from the Ministry in charge of the aged, single mothers, suffering children young drug addicts etc.
    7. To have a nursery in the august Dewan Rakyat for reporters, male or female with babies. First in the World.
    8. Close 1 km of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. It is like closing Oxford Street in London.
    9. To abolish the death penalty. This is the most laughable of all. To save the murderers lives who killed hundreds in the streets. Where is the logic ? Crime rates are already rising due to different factors.
    10. A flying motorcar produced in Malaysia. First, this idea has been in place since 1947. None succeeded. Second it is just ploy to con somebody and make money money money like that plastic airplane project in Melaka over 25 years ago. This fellow is now a billionaire. Third, Singapore and the World are already making fun of this Malaysian flying car !
    11. What happened to the meeting on palm oil between the EU and Malaysia after all the publicity ?

    Between 2004-2018, Malaysia experienced the biggest drop in our standards, propriety, ethics, honesty, integrity,logic, common sense etc – virtues which make a people great. Corruption and nepotism corroded all that was good and respectable as these were the inputs from our Great Prime Ministers of the past, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad from 1957-2003 – 46 years. The whole façade built up by these Great Prime Ministers were gone soon after 2003 and by 2018 even Israelis were in the Prime Minister’s boudoir with the Perdana Menteri’s Istana turned into a night club of sorts filled with Hollywood types, champagne and blondes a few years earlier. With the famished PAP cadres congesting the AVENUES looking for low hanging fruits with the help of the 4th Floor boys and their magic wands, it was fun and good times for the exclusive at the Rakyat’s expense.

    In the meantime according to international surveys, RM 1 TRILLION RINGGITS were siphoned out between 2002-2010 !

    Hence, the credibility of Malaysia and the Malaysians fell down to an all-time low by 9 May 2018.

    And if the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great despite of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s leadership, thinks all is fine and dandy, I beg them to look outside our World in comparison with what happened between 2003-2018 !

    We were on the WAY to self-destruction through CORRUPTION AND NEPOTISM with no standards, ethics, common sense, integrity, honesty, propriety, piety, logic etc whatsoever. We are lucky to be led by a brilliant and courageous Prime Minister today.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Our YBs must not think that because all are at peace and harmony, they are going to enjoy their jobs. Politics if practised in a fine manner gives fine rewards like in business. But if Politics is abused, the damage is immeasurable. It is good very good if you put these words in your Cabinet room. THE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS’.

    I missed the sound of birdsong from the resident bulbul in the young banyan tree this morning as my grand-daughter decided to take a day off. No problem.

    With the spare time in hand, I reached for my screen to view the latest.

    And these days, all detractors seem to focus their attention, from Singapore down to the kachang puteh seller, with intent to destroy the New and Incorruptible Government as led by the old and the young, the good and the great. No problem.

    All of these are fake news from a person’s age down to tolls and onto anything which could be created as fake news.

    I am most amused by those fake news produced by those who think they live forever and ever.

    For years, I never realised that I out-lived so many some of whom used to think I DIE FIRST. I am exceedingly happy I am still around in good health and spirits.

    As the years went by I began to notice that those who harmed me either got harmed themselves eventually or their wives or children died. The youngest was 40 years old.

    I have a crooked relative who cheated lied and stole. He died a painful death after lingering for 3 years. At the end, he could not stand it anymore and retreated to a Roman Catholic friary in Singapore. He came into this World with nothing and left with nothing ! What a waste !

    Those detractors who make snide remarks or laugh at elders beware of what may eventually be fallen upon them. Man proposes. God disposes.

    My other relatives who did not harm to anyone lived up to 94, 95, 96 and 100 ! The crook died at 70 !

    My list of 65 persons from the lowest to the highest was put up by me in the past 20 years when I began to notice why some of these detractors began to die or get what deserved for their negative actions.

    This list pointed out one thing which is common amongst these persons – THEY WERE ALL CROOKS. There were four who cheated me. The wives died within 3 years ! Of course, they have lots of money, money, money.

    In my life, I never ask another person how old he is or what is his profession. I do not assess a person on these qualities but based on friendship.

    Therefore, those who make fun of the elders with evil thoughts and expect them to die, may soon find themselves their own targets. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem, In their quest for POWER, the ambitious will employ all sorts of tactics to achieve their aims. Some may deploy sneaky Israelis in the Prime Minister’s boudoir or slimy Chinamen in the Prime Minister’s kitchen ! The human mind is full of ingenuity and crookedness, Tun !

    With your permission, I wish to add to my previous comment on the nefarious profit making activities in Malaysia 1946-2018 which I inadvertently left out, thus

    Addendum. ‘ 1977-1985. The MCA through its leaders went into business on the pretext that since the Malays got Sime Darby, the MCA as an organised political group also do business to protect the Chinese. These leaders ended up in jail and the whole concept was given up by 1986. My friend told me he remitted S$ 100 Million from Singapore to the Hong Kong account of a girl friend during those days.’ Who says there is discrimination in Malaysia !

    What is a better Monday morning than this ? My friend the song-bird bulbul is still in residence in the young banyan tree. He began to chirp and sing a few minutes before 7 a.m. sharp. and was quite unperturbed by the human noises around him, rumbling motorcars and screeching motorbikes as they sped off to work.

    There were no headlines of note this morning but an intriguing observation by a pundit thus, ‘ Malaysia is full of fakes, snake-oil salesmen, charlatans, etc….’ May I add the following to round up the farcical antics of today’s Malaysians like…

    1. ” SNEAKY ISRAELI IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S BOUDOIR ” for the love of SEX ? or

    2. ” SLIMY CHINAMAN FOUND IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S KITCHEN ” for the love of food, chicken rice ?

    You name it. The crooks have it. To go back to the basics again which I love and form an understanding of the lack of enforcement of the laws since the beginning of time in our beloved country, thus

    Chronology of unusual but very profitable ways to make money.

    1. 1946-1957. Tontine
    2. 1949-1957 MCA Social Welfare Lottery
    3. 1960-1962 Mushroom insurance companies
    4. 1961-1962 Fragmentation of estates
    5. 1962-2018 Share-rigging on the Stock Exchange
    6. 1971-1972 Gemini Chit Fund
    7. 1976-2018 Tax free RM 2 incorporated places of worship
    8. 1977-1985 Co-operatives linked with the Stock Exchange
    9. 1982-1983 Insurance companies guarantees.
    10. 2002-2004 Forex caper
    11. 2003-2005 Oil palm estate fund caper
    12 2012-2014 Gold Bullion caper

    Other illicit activities which are the direct concern of the PDRM like bookies, gambling, numbers, etc are not listed by me.

    Then we have the best profession for the young today without capital but Gift of the Gab being politics, NGOs and the Tax Free RM 2 incorporated places of worship. Here are the true examples.

    1. Politics are well-known and well-established in our beloved Malaysia

    2. NGOs.

    I know a true example where this lawyer out of 18,000 had a set of 2 rooms in my friend’s Wisma MPI and became the one and only. Lo and behold ! She donned a clean yellow T-shirt and walked the hot and humid streets of Kl with the mob munching a KFC. Lo and behold ! She was ennobled and has free access to those countries which deny they are racist and bigoted. Lo and behold ! She comes out now and then pointing her middle finger at her detractors to make herself relevant. Who says there is discrimination in our beloved Malaysia ?

    3. Tax Free RM 2 incorporated places of worship.

    Here are two golden examples of vision, creativity and innovation against all odds !

    a) My illiterate sister-in-law from Bentong worked as a hair-rinser in Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur. She established her own Tax Free RM 2 incorporate Church and made millions of ringgits from her worshippers. She invested the money in the Marble Arch area of London (MCA invested in North London) and made millions of pounds sterling ! Who says there is discrimination in our beloved Malaysia !

    b) My cousin who is the Head Abbess of a major temple rides around in a chauffeured driven golden Mercedes Benz S saloon the latest model ! Who says there is discrimination in our beloved Malaysia !

    Our pundit is absolutely correct. Malaysia has always had its full quota of fakes, snake skin oil salesmen, con men and women, charlatans, liars etc. due to the lack of enforcement and respect for ethics, standards, propriety etc. And a new phenomenon – Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes which illustrate the latest in the economics of deficit financing for development (self) ! History is the finest arbiter of the Truth. !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Malaysian mornings are the best in the World.

    I grew to love Malaysian mornings during the old days of the trunk roads which were ideal for those who loved driving – not many cars, fine and winding roads. And the joy of overtaking slower cars as we sped along. The only danger was the occasional cockerel or goat who might cross the road whilst passing through a kampong. Who cared ?

    Those were the halcyon days of long ago – the days of our youth.

    And dusk was another great event. The smell of the acrid smoke wafted from fires lit by the villagers as they cleaned up for the day !

    These were my pleasant memories of a great and historic land which the urbanites today are not aware of. The tail-gate lines of cars these days along the highways is a clear indication of this. Life moves on.

    Past memories. Childhood memories were pleasant for me. My mother used to feed me with a big table spoon of Castor Oil or Milk of Magnesia every Sunday morning which I took without complaint. This was followed by a lunch of a bowl of plain rice porridge in her belief that I would be detoxed and be a brand new son every Sunday. A mother’s love is expressed in many ways.

    This was the old colonial days of Brand’s Chicken of Essence, Sanatogen, Brylcreem, Yardley Brillantine etc.

    My mother used to drink a cupful of Sanatogen in her belief that this foul smelling stuff would protect her brain ! Such was the power of advertising even in the old days.

    Just before my final school examinations, I was gobbling up dozens of bottles of Brand’s Chicken Essence in the firm belief I would top the class. Later, when I was in London preparing to enter the university, I went to a Boots along Edgeware Road, London and asked for 1 dozen bottles of this wonderful elixir for my brain. The young girl across the counter told me.’ We have only one bottle. Besides, do not be silly. This Chicken Essence only contained coloured jelly and a pinch of salt.’ This misinformation cleared my brainwashed mind in a jiffy. From then on, I freed myself from the mental crutch of Brand’s Chicken of Essence forever.

    In Malaysia today, this is still a top seller courtesy of Cerebos the famed salt-maker of England.

    And on a Sunday, there are headlines galore in this once sleepy haven of a country thus :

    1. ” DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST CAN’T BE PROMOTED OVER DEAD BODIES. ”

    2. ” LIEW NOT AWARE OF ROADSIDE ZOOS INSTRUCTS WILD LIFE DEPT TO INVESTIGATE. ”

    3. ” MALAYSIA MUST BE INDEPENDENT OF GREAT POWER ”

    4. ” EXEMPT ALL FIRST TIME HOUSE BUYERS FROM PAYING STAMP DUTY.”

    Head lines 1 and 3 were the remarks made by our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the ways of the Super Powers at play in the World today.

    We are fortunate to have the New and Incorruptible Government in place with the right loyalty, honesty and compassion which will not SELL OUR COUNTRY AND THE RAKYAT BEHIND OUR BACKS LIKE THE PETER PAN AND MAGPIE SYNDROMES TYPES and their equally corrupt elites.

    It is important for all Malaysians. the young and the old to know our unique history because history is the finest arbiter of the TRUTH. !MDB is already history.

    In the Middle East, there was peace and harmony under their own rulers for centuries, living in well built historic homes. Overnight, in the name of ARAB SPRING, their Rulers were assassinated, innocent men, women and children together with their century old homes were killed and destroyed in the name of DEMOCRACY.

    What does this tell us ? THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA MUST BE GOVERNED NORMALLY BY NORMAL PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO HIDDEN AGENDAS AND WITH THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND.

    NO MORE SNEAKY ISRAELI IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S BOUDOIR FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    As I see it, this is the last chance for our beloved Malaysia to make the grade NORMALLY WITH ALL THE HUMAN AND NATURAL RESOURCES AVAAILABLE IN THE MOST IMPORTANT STRATEGIC LOCATION IN THE WORLD.

    I HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT THIS NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT CAN DO SO. HOPEFULLY, IT WILL METAMORPH INTO A 61 YEAR GOOD GOVERNANCE ! By-By MCA !

    Our beloved Malaysia was already tied up via the signed Lee Kuan Yew creation TPPA/CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays Killer to be enslaved and raped. The non-Malays will suffer even more due to the precepts of the Constitution. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Singapore is in big trouble now without its nirvana the TARIFF FREE MALAYSIA FOR THE PICKING AND NO NEW REVENUES IN SIGHT AFTER HER BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES IN ARMS TRADING ETC. WERE LOST TO THE BRICS.

    Since the failed Singaporean attempts to make Malaysia a slave Colony by working on the Prime Minister which she nearly succeeded with the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government Leaderships and its equally corrupt elites, and another Power moved in as well, our beloved Malaysia will always be subjected to overtures with the ulterior motive all the time BECAUSE OF OUR IMPORTANT STRATEGIC LOCATION, OUR DIVERSE POPULATION AND LITTLE INSTIGATORS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ! Beware !

    Women, money, Perth ? Anything you want, the Power will give you ! THIS WILL BE THE END OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA OVERNIGHT ! We must not forget the hard-work and dedication of the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn, and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad !

    IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS TURNED INTO A WAR-ZONE BY TREASONOUS TYPES, WHERE ARE WE THE REFUGEES RUN TO ? EUROPE ?

    So, please think hard and well, Ladies and Gentlemen, WE MALAYSIANS NOW HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BUILD A NATION LIKE VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA, GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN ! And the only WAY is to progress upwards with hard-work and unity.

    Do not be misled by filthy yellow worms without spine or bees like HBT456 who is actually a failed specimen in LIFE !

    2. ” LIEW NOT AWARE OF ROADSIDE ZOOS……….. ”

    In the interests of Humanity, all zoos should be closed down. It is inhuman to cage animals and in most cases are badly managed or fed.

    Many years ago, my factory staff caught a giant python which we presented to the Taiping Zoo. After a few weeks, it was missing. I presumed it was sold. I have never desired to shoot animals in the wild even though I had 7 guns at one time. The wanton destruction of wild life today will come to haunt us sometime in the future. Live and let live !

    4. ” EXEMPT ALL FIRST TIME HOUSE BUYERS FROM PAYING STAMP DUTY ”

    We cannot deal with the problem of offering affordable homes by drib and drab answers.

    TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOME FOR ALL, ALL FACTORS CONCERNING THE COST OF SUCH A HOUSE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED. What are the factors ? And these factors are well-known to the cognoscenti !

    1. THE COST TO THE DEVELOPER ON GETTING AN APPROVAL

    2. THE COST OF REMOVING RED BUREAUCRATIC TAPE.

    3. BANK FINANCING IS EXPENSIVE BECAUSE IT IS BASED ON NORMAL ASSUMPTIONS AND NOTHING SPECIAL FOR THE FIRST TIME BUYER.

    For example, a RM 500,000 house buyer with a 30 year mortgage at 4.5% per annum pays a monthly interest of RM 3,000 and a capital repayment of RM 600 !! I VIEW THIS A UNFETTERED PROFITEERING BY THE BANKS IN FULL VIEW OF BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA !!

    4. THE DEVELOPER SHOULD BEAR ALL THE COSTS, STAMP DUTY AND ALL OTHER CHARGES.

    5. A SPECIAL MONITORING UNIT TO SEE ALL PARTICIPANTS TOE THE LINE

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem I see the next Government as DSAI with Tun and the Team by his side. Acheh !

    This is one morning that I usually overslept because there is no necessity to ferry my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK. And as a result, I am unaware whether my feather friend the singing bulbul was back at his nest in the young banyan tree or not. Never mind. Life goes on.

    And I woke up this morning thinking about South America and the wealth which the countries had before World War 2 in comparison with our beloved Malaysia of today.

    When Malaya was under British Colonialism, the South American countries had their freedoms but was entirely under American Imperialism to the advantage of America. The whole satrap was still wrapped in its Empire mind-set of Rulers and serfs.

    All the splendid European style architecture were built at the turn of the 20th Century when the demand from the warring nations of Europe for natural commodities held sway. A time when Malaya was in the economic doldrums or infancy before the jungles were cleared to make way for plantations on an organised scale.

    The natural resources of South America boosted the wealth of the larger countries like Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru and Chile that by the beginning of World War 2, Argentina was the 7th richest country in the World with its exports of wheat, cattle and other commodities. She accumulated 55 tons of gold before Peron.

    Brazil gained first with its natural rubber culled from patches of jungle which created a jungle town with an opera house deep in the jungle along the Amazon river.

    The flush of wealth pushed certain South American countries to its highest peak of human endeavour. But due to the immature political and good governance process at the material time, we see the consequences of human greed and weakness of the flesh today in all the cities of South America.

    DOES OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA REMIND US OF THIS ?

    An opportunity missed through institutionalised corruption and nepotism. The dominance of the rich over the poor. The urban over the rural.

    In 1962, I met the son of THE Venezuelan Ambassador in London. I could discern that he was rich by the way he was dressed – camel hair overcoat, Saville Row suit, etc. And now, we witness throngs of starving Venezuelans daily on our TV screens in a country which has huge petroleum deposits.

    In the early 1980s, an American researcher from Southern California was doing a study on Malaysia’s success with FELDA and other plantation enterprises. He asked me for the answers. I replied that first, a country must have ample and cheap land, second, an organised and disciplined work-force and third, good governance which meant the Government must fully back such an enterprise to succeed.

    In the 1980s, none of the South American countries were in the position to do any State-backed developments in the interests of the peoples. To-day the scenario is even worse.

    Throughout the 20th Century South America was a captive market for American goods but very few items were exported. Central American countries produced bananas or Cuba sugar for exports.

    In stark contrast, Japan and Switzerland still hold the key to the success of their concomitant urban and rural developments even though this has been a difficult task to sustain and maintain and at great cost. But this is absolutely essential for political stability and harmony which lead to the total wherewithal of a Nation.

    Our beloved Malaysia was built up and nurtured through the LIFE-LONG AND HONEST DEDICATION OF ITS LEADERS FROM 1957 – 2003, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and all their loyal and hard-working adherents of which many were never recognised.

    All these Malaysians were the heroes or heroines like their Leaders.

    The general environment was so stable, peaceful and harmonious that the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leaderships and their equally corrupt elites which came after them, were able to administer a country without any Policy but free-wheeling. They thought all the resources human and monetary were built up by their predecessors for their enjoyment. EXACTLY LIKE ONE OF MY ELDER BROTHERS TOLD ME, ‘ MY FATHER LEFT ME THE MONEY FOR ME TO ENJOY !’ I choked in silence !

    Look at the huge opportunities the South American countries had in the first 50 years of the 20th Century. Unfortunately, these were born under the wrong stars – stark Imperialist exploitation dominated unlike the more free and liberal minded Western World of post-World War 2.

    And if we all understand the World’s history even in its most simplistic terms, WE WILL ALL UNDERSTAND THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS NOW IN THE ‘LAST CHANCE SALOON’ OF OPPORTUNITY !

    As I said before, with our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Government with DSAI and the Team by his side, Malaysia should ONCE AND FOR ALL BREAK FREE FROM THE CHAINS OF WANTON CORRUPTION AND NEPOTISM and trek rapidly upwards towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan through focus on

    (i) the Economy, (ii) Reformation of the right Laws like the Companies Act 1965, the Bankruptcy Act 1967 and the Trustees Act 1949 which have never been really and properly revised before because of the lazy and self-serving BN Ministers of Law – the three of them.(iii) Security – as the events of the World impinge more and more on Malaysia due to many factors like its important strategic location in the World etc. (iv) the Rakyat’s Welfare being jobs, cost of living, housing, education, the aged, single mothers, neglected children, drug addicts etc. (v) the Success of Tun Dr Mahathir’s success in the creation of the Malay income group comes the more apparent division between the urban and the rural which should ALWAYS BE SUBSIDISED BY THE GOVERNMENT because their products cannot be enhanced in value and always be affected by the vicissitudes of the climate.

    GO FOR THE BROAD STROKES OF SUCCESS TO MAKE THE BIG PICTURE. Not hot air on mosquito projects like nursery in Dewan Rakyat, Kim Eng as Vice-Chancellor etc. If totted up, all these will KILL the New and Incorruptible Government.

    THE TRILLIONS OF MONEY WHICH HAD BEEN SIPHONED OVERSEAS THROUGH CORRUPTION SHOCKED ME.

    The crazy antics of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites need no further elaboration !

    WITH THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT OF THE OLD AND THE YOUNG, THE GOOD AND THE GREAT WHICH I EXPECT TO BE IN COMMAND FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS, by-by MCA, you all had the good times, our beloved Malaysia has the ingredients to push forwards and upwards and CREATE FOR OURSELVED A DECENT, RESPECTABLE AND A NORMAL NATION free from those with Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes. My grand-daughter wants to be a PSYCHOLOGIST who will find her work cut out for her now but may be not in future !

    The last piece in the jig-saw puzzle in Nation building is to invite the Japanese SME enterprises to set up shop in specially allotted areas like FTZ not only on the Peninsula but also Sabah and Sarawak with special logistics to and fro Japan as part of JAPAN’S MANUFACTURING CHAIN TO FAST DEVELOP MALAYSIA AND PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT TO THE RAKYAT. In the 1980s, we have the FTZ. In the 21st Century, Malaysia has special ZONES for SMEs from all countries especially Japan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. No South American scenarios for us. We are Malaysians !

    Times are great.

    How can anyone escapes the exciting and titillating headlines which appear in all earnestness in the daily media. Our beloved Malaysia is now one of the most exciting nations in the World apart from Brexit land and is untouched by War but Peace and Harmony. The headlines as follows :-

    1. ” DR M STILL THE BEST MAN TO CLEAN-UP MALAYSIA ”

    2. ” DR M SHOULD STAY FULL TERM ”

    3. ” RM 500 MILLION LAND LOSS IN MINDEF LAND SWAPS ONLY THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.

    4. ” CUEPECS SAYS 1.7 MILLION CIVIL SERVANTS NOT THAT MANY ”

    5. ” PAKATAN FALLING APART, FUELLING SINGAPORE-MALAYSIA SPAT ” BILA KAUSIKAN

    6. ” INDIA THREATENS A NEW WEAPON AGAINST PAKISTAN, WATER.” Courtesy Bilahari Kausikan.

    On Headline 1 & 2,

    I have always said that the present New and Incorruptible Government is led by our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    As agreed and in time, DSAI with Tun and the Team by his side will form the next Government.

    This is the New Malaysia with a New Format to ensure that there will be no more hanky-panky by Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes types to ruin the country anymore. Besides, humanity in the right places live well beyond 90 years old at present and the future.

    My sister just died at 100. She could drive a car up to 92 ! An elder brother is ailing at 96 after gone through 4 Singaporean companionships since he was 70 ! 3 other sisters died at 94, 95 and 96 !

    Any more suggestions to the contrary is fiction and not REALPOLITIK.

    On Headlines 3 & 4 These are self-explanatory. There should be more revelations to come to titillate us.

    On Headline 5 .

    I always take off my hat to Bilahari Kausikan for the quality of his brain and the forthright manner in which he expressed his views on paper. He missed the mark a couple of times. His remark, ‘ DAP IS IRRELEVANT ‘ hit a couple of aged nerves in ye olde KL. At the time, I thought it was about Singapore’s defence. But now BK is absolutely right – THE DAP FORMS AN IMPORTANT AND INTEGRAL PART OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT WHICH WILL LAST FOR THE NEXT 61 YEARS LIKE THE RETIRED MCA IN THE OLD DAYS ! Acheh !

    But BK’s tussle with Mahbubani was a bit of a show for all to see. Singapore does not matter if either gentleman is correct. The 21st Century e-biz World moves on and the players as well.

    On Headline 6 – ” INDIA THREATENS A NEW WEAPON AGAINST PAKISTAN – WATER.

    My recent comment on the Amendment of the Malaysian Constitution is purely coincidental. There was no mention of using Water as a weapon against anyone least of all Singapore.

    The Amendment is within International Jurisprudence with Malaysia safe-guarding its precious natural resources for the future generations to come. Countries from Egypt, Iraq, etc are all doing it – the conservation of precious water for domestic requirements for now and the future.

    Hence, the proposed UNANIMOUS AMENDMENT TO THE CONSITUTION thus, RAW OR UNTREATED WATER IS FORBIDDEN TO BE EXPORTED, SOLD OR TRANSPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Interesting times are with us always nowadays compared with our sleepy past years ago ! And it is all to do with something called MONEY ! MONEY ! MONEY !

    Or the hand-picked Malaysia’s most beautiful Secret Services Chief 004 with the penchant of Gucci specs, a golden Walther PPK and sticky fingers worth another RM 50 Million of the Rakyat’s hard-earned money ?

    As I said many years ago, Bangkok was the hunting ground for Cold War (1948-1989) spies and Singapore was their headquarters. Now Malaysia is the host to both, the headquarters and the spies.

    Surprise for me this morning. My resident bulbul in the young banyan tree began to chirp and sing in full song at 7 a.m. sharp this morning better than a Swiss made cuckoo clock. This made my day because as I entered my house past the young banyan tree last night, I was bit crest-fallen with the thought that my feather friend had gone for good. No ! He has not after AWOL for two days.

    The World is full of surprises which titillate us no end as to the revelation of hidden insights which we would never have known could have happened. Like the latest expose’ of the ISRAELI IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S BOUDIOR EVEM AHEAD OF CHINA ! And that Peter Pan and Magpie Syndrome fellow rushed out to defend something which he was not even aware of. Future Prime Ministers of our beloved Malaysia must qualify for the job – to be able to differentiate a cat from a tiger or an Israeli from an Eskimo. But first, these prospective fellows must know their A, B, C, ending up with a short summary of the Rape of the Sabine Women in ancient Rome !

    The up-side down or the crazy World for our beloved Malaysia between 2004 – 2018 was really out-of-this-World. Anything could happened in such high places. From the 4th Floor Boys in short pants past the Avenues chocked full of famished hard-core PAP cadres looking for the low-hanging fruits onto the ATM for crooks, SIME DARBY ending with the cushy Chief Editor’s job in UMNO’s very own NSTP for a sworn PAP hard core cadre. And not forgetting that Lee Kuan Yew’s sister-in-law could CASH IN HER PLAIN PIECE OF PAPER FOR BILLIONS OF RINGGITS VIA MAYBANK with no sweat at all. From the sublime to the ridiculous ! Where else but our beloved Malaysia ? And the frivolous and farcical antics of the Singaporean Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leaderships and its equally corrupt elites go on and on.

    IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT THAT ALL THE DIRT IN THE AUGEAN STABLES ARE IDENTIFIED AND CLEANED OUT OR ELSE THE BLAME MAY REST WITH THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT. History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    And with our invincible defence weapons in hand. our beloved Malaysia will now REALLY GO PLACES.

    The 3 invincible weapons of Malaysia are thus :-

    1 MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. This is illustrated by great advances by Malaysia after 13 May 1969 and 9 May 2018

    2. ANOTHER BEST DEFENCE WITHIN INTERNATIONAL JURISPRUDENCE IS THE UNANIMOUS AMENDMENT AT ANY TIME OF THE CONSTITUTION, THUS – ‘ NO UNTREATED OR RAW WATER MAY BE SOLD, EXPORTED OR TRANSPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE.’ No need to buy Russian super-duper jets any more to counter Singapore’s Lend-Lease F-16s or F-35s !

    3. THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT OF OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE.

    I seek the understanding and co-operation of the partners in the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the TEAM by his side to UNITE TO WORK FOR OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST in order we all form a bulwark for our beloved Malaysia’s new-found status as ONE OF THE FORU MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, MALAYSIA.

    Malaysia is fast trekking upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. And Malaysia being the important strategic NEXUS with a land mass and inhabitants in the WHOLE WORLD. Please go and check, Ladies and Gentlemen !

    Why our top leaders between 2004-2018 do not know the difference between a cat and a dog ? Or an Israeli from an Eskimo ?

    Suddenly, the media World has discovered that some legal eagle was money-laundering RM 15 Million for a person called Stadlen.

    This Stadlen fellow looks the most Israeli-like to me.

    I could identify an Israeli 1 Km away because I met them when I was only 8 years old up in the High Himalayas and later lived and played amongst them as a student for 9 years. I beat them. They beat me. Not all of them are smart like the Chinese. There are black, brown, blonde and yellow ones with blue, brown or black eyes. These are the real survivors of the Diaspora.

    And yet, this Israeli Stadlen which name alone tells all with a face which underlined all that he is an Israeli.

    Not only that, the Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes fellow who employed him does not know that the Israelis controls and owns the media and advertising agencies of the World.

    He was employed as the head of the biggest and most sensitive media outfit operated by this naïve fellow. Singapore recommended him via all those hot and private retreats ?

    Of course, he is British. So is my Hong Kong cook in Chinatown, London.

    It is a wonder now how such sub-standard persons could reach to such high places in the land to ruke over us the Rakyat !. Little are they aware that good foreigners stay at home. Bad hats come roaming with a huge knife behind their backs – from Christopher Columbus to Stadlen !

    And why is this Israeli of indeterminate origin worth RM 15 Million ?

    What is the basis for giving good Malaysian ringgits without a guarantee of any success of doing things in the National Interest ? An Israeli who was parachuted or recommended by some one with a BIG ULTERIOR MOTIVE ?

    The more the antics of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elites are exposed, the more this saga seemed to have come from Oxford’s Lewis Carroll’s. ‘ Alice in Wonderland ‘ !

    Imagine an Israeli employed at great expense to handle the most important department of information under the aegis of the Prime Minister of the land.

    The Ministry of Information in Singapore is big beyond the size of its tiny homeland and engages in all the sensitive information in its National Interest like catching VIPs with their pants down, spies galore etc. Are we up to that standard ?

    No doubt also this fellow is from MOSSAD to keep tabs on Malaysia contacts with the Middle East or weaken the Malays traditional hierarchy and unity in a strategic and important land – ONE OF 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD. Right inside the boudoir of a Prime Minister and ahead of all even China !

    How can top leaders sleep through such important scenarios of a Life-time with deference to the weakness of the flesh and weak under-belly !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Even Israelis could diddle the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leaderships 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elites ! Finally, our beloved Malaysia was set to be raped by all including Israel !

    As the days march on, the days seem to be brighter and brighter for the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great under your steady Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    As time goes on too, detractors, enemies, bad hats etc all took pot shots at the New and Incorruptible Government with ideas which are as old as the hills.

    But happy days and good days for the Rakyat are just a whisper away as long as the New and Incorruptible Governmnet keep firm on SECURITY, THE RULE OF LAW, FOCUS ON THE ECONOMY AND BRING DOWN THE PRICE OF RICE, AND BE A REFEREE TO ALL THINGS WHICH MOVE UNDER THE MALAYSIAN SUN. We had our own version of the beautiful MOON just two nights ago.

    For those bird-lovers, my pair of bulbuls did not return to their nest in the young banyan tree.

    This brought my mind to focus on climbing the more than 30 corrupt DBKL bumps ( for each bump, the DBKL official pockets RM 1,000 and RM 100 for each strip ) and countless numbers of bumpy strips within a radius of 5 km as I wobbled along.

    It is time for any REAL DATO BANDAR TO STOP THIS CORRUPT BUMPY NONSENSE ONCE AND FOR ALL. Or elae, our beloved Malaysia will be known as THE BUMPY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD – another first in the Guinness Book of Records.

    And I am not including the countless numbers of deep pot-holes which ruined the shock-absorbers of my wonderful car, Toyota Rush after 50,000 km ! After 90,000 km, all the engine mountings were gone as well. All the motorcar mechanics in town should thank the Dato Bandars of Kuala Lumpur for this business.

    Some like the spineless worm want to project themselves as great. How can they if they hide themselves behind FAKES NAMES ? Sprouting out brave words like defending the giant with feet of clay, Lee Kuan Yew ?

    With the exception of this fake worm, generally most commentators are sensible and logical. I will debate with anyone on LOGIC. Here is the most illogical event I have ever seen in my life. THE PURPORTED MILITARIZATION OF THE TINY ISLE OF SINGAPORE AGAINST FAKE MALAY THREATS.

    The Defence of Singapore with 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 is based on the THREATENING MALAYS FROM ACROSS THE SEAS. Therefore, Singapore military now has :-

    300,000 reservist and 3 regiments of Gurkha soldiers dressed as policemen with Israeli advisors, mercenary pilots, F-16s, F-35s Apaches, AWACS, Hercules, balloons, drones, 2 old and 4 new bespoke midget submarines custom-made for Singapore, corvettes, rusting tanks, long range artillery, underground dumps and command centres, armoured skyscrapers, spies galore – swallows, ducks, tycoons, treasonous Malaysian civil servants, academicians, journalists, bankers,etc with constant alerts. All these to defend only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50.

    If we match the Singapore Budget 2019 with the MILITARY AND ITS SOCIAL COMMITMENTS, this explains why the Budget is no Budget at all – a non-starter which did not give room for the Singapore Government to squeeze out of its present incarcerated position.

    This confirms a pundit’s observation that the Government has to lean on its RESERVES. Reserves which probably are the left-overs from the huge Black counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    IS THE SHOW OVER FOR SINGAPORE SUSTAINABILITY AND SURVIVAL ?

    If the Singapore Leadership could not produce white rabbits from the proverbial hat, it’s socio-economic trajectory which is land based, can only go down and down due to many external factors beyond its control. And no one can see when is the end of the tunnel.

    And curious fellow Malaysians may ask, WHAT IS MALAYSIA’S DEFEMCE ?

    As we are a friendly, hospitable and gregarious bunch of fellows who do not think of harming others but only helping, OUR DEFENCE IS SIMPLE AND YET POWERFUL ! As fpllows :-

    1. MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. This invincible weapon has never failed our beloved Malaysia so far !

    2. AT ANY TIME, THE DEWAN RAKYAT CAN VOTE UNANIMOUSLY TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION THUS, ‘ NO RAW OR UNTREATED WATER MAY BE EXPORTED, TRANSPORTED OR SOLD OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE. ‘

    3. THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT OF OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE.

    These are the best and finest weapons which our beloved Malaysia already has without spending a sen on Russian super-duper jets.

    And these weapons are just IDEAS which come from our Malaysian brains.

    If all the negative ideas which now reside in Malaysian minds are translated into positive ideas to bolster Malaysia as one of the 4 most important countries of the World instead of wasting them by energy wasting legal Suits, Malaysia will stand proud and strong with a NEW MIND-SET TO THE DELIGHT OF TUN !

    It is as simple as this.

    A NEW MIND-SET THAT THERE IS MUCH MORE TO GAIN BY WORKING TOGETHER TO TURN THE WHEEL.

    No more fellows with Peter Pan or Magpie Syndromes. I reckon we can all take off within 3 years given our HUMAN RESOURCES, NATURAL RESOURCES AND THE STRATEGIC LAND MASS – if we work WITH ALL AND SUNDRY FOR MUTUAL BENEFIT. The World changes so fast these days which has left the Singaporean minds in shambles by missing out the wood from the trees.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. As I tell my grand-daughter, problems are Human-kind made, it is up to Human-kind to undo problems. And TIME AND PATIENCE WILL RESOLVE ALL PROBLEMS.

    Tun

    I was hoping to report the return of the pair of bulbuls this morning. But alas, there was no chirping or singing from the young banyan tree. Hopefully, my feather friends have not gone forever.

    An interesting topic which I like to raise is the question of fake degrees purchased by certain personalities when they were young and ignorant. Now, they live to regret it and under circumstances which might lead to their undoing in whatever careers they have chosen.

    For many years now, I have commented that in the World of the Net and the present attitude of places of learning like the universities, the conditions and environment in which you and I were brought up have changed entirely.

    In those days of yore, we found it very difficult to gain a place at a university to study. Universities were small, few and far between. The places were limited. We had to study very hard to go places.

    Unlike today, all students of all ages are welcomed to study at a place of learning. In our time, it was easy to be thrown out of a university if we did not make the mark. Hence, we found many students studied Law overseas.

    Gathering all my Life-time experience together, I have commented that nowadays, universities are places for social activity if a student is not going to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, architect or other professions which require a university degree. Costs of an overseas education are high. But the overseas and local universities available at home take up the slack.

    However, I always emphasised that there is no necessity to enter a university these days given the opportunities available in the World of the Net and e-business. A motivated and young person can do a good Form 6 in the requisite computer and science subjects and then launch himself or herself into the e-biz World which takes time to find a worthwhile niche to profitability. Instead of spending time and much money joining a university, a person pursuing this career course will be in action straightaway without the hassle of wasting time and money.

    Extrapolating my comments onto those who hold high public positions without university degrees, the end effect of all these activities is the result of a successful personality dealing with matters of the State NORMALLY.

    In other words, a person does not need to have a university degree to do many things. There are many public examples in this World who have achieved the highest rewards without a university education or none at all.

    Just look at the mental shambles in Singapore with all those over-educated elites who could not think out of the box. Their only knowledge is to play safe and follow the quotations of Lee Kuan Yew of the 20th Century.

    What about the 21st Century in which these elites are living today ?

    In 2014, 2 Singaporean Ministers announced that in future, applicants for jobs, promotions etc will be considered not only on their academic merits but also on their other talents. With all due respect, this underlined the failure of meritocracy based on a university education, Ivy League or Oxbridge on a piece of paper.

    What am I trying to say Tun ?

    Exactly what Deng Xiao Ping said, ‘ It does not matter whether a cat is black or white as long as it catches mice.’

    I have noticed many times that some of my friends with university degrees could not forget their university days like Lee Kuan Yew. All of them failed to be successful in LIFE !

    Good professions for those WITHOUT A UNIVERSITY DEGREE IN MALAYSIA are POLITICS, NGOs and the TAX FREE RM 2 INCORPORATED PLACES OF WORSHIP. To be honest ( favourite phrase of English TV commentators ), I have not observed a FAILURE IN MONEY TERMS IN THESE 3 PROFESSIONS YET !

    But for those who prefer to stay out of these professions, then the e-biz World is your oyster !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem if a person has NO UNIVERSITY DEGREE, it is what makes you an honourable man or woman that counts !

    Tun

    I was expecting the pair of bulbuls to sing their songs at 7 a.m. sharp this morning. There was only silence from the young banyan tree. However, the plaintive and haunting calls of the urbanised golden oriole replaced the void. Hopefully, the pair has not flown away for good. I keep my fingers crossed with great expectations. This is a little part of my Life which I love not to miss.

    I have to climb over 15 corrupt DBKL bumps along the roads to reach my destination in a Mall which brought my temperature up. But my emotions were cooled down by a Bangladeshi jaga who opened my car’s door and helped to pay the parking ticket for me. This made my day compounded by the sight of a fellow Christ’s ( Christ’s College, Cambridge ) man on the front page of a media. What more do I want in our beloved Malaysia ?

    From the sublime to the ridiculous as it is said, Tun ! Here are the headlines for the day, thus :-

    1 ‘ PARLIAMENT TO SET UP CHILDREN CENTRE ‘- This is the zaniest idea of all the nitty-gritty which the new Ministers of the New and Incorruptible Government have produced out of the proverbial hat so far.

    Little things were more important than the BIG PICTURE to serve the Rakyat with BROAD STROKES ! From black shoes to little absurd nurseries in the most August council in the Land, the Dewan Rakyat.

    When this absurd news item first appeared in the media, I applauded it with the thought that the Federal Government was setting up children care centres all over the country. But on reading the fine print, I was taken aback by the mosquito thinking behind this absurd non-starter.

    WHY SHOULD THE FEDERAL MINISTER CARE ABOUT THE KIDS OF ROAMING REPORTERS AND THEIR BABES ? WHY IS SHE SO SURE THEY HAVE BABES ? MEN OR WOMEN ?

    This is an utter waste of money and time of the Rakyat who voted the YBs into their jobs.

    All members of the Federal Government without prompting should be aware that they look after the BIG PICTURE ( FEDERAL ).

    In this case in the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development – the aged, single mothers, orphans and drug addicts. No more. No less.

    A nursery or a crèche in the Houses of Parliament ? EVEN THE QUEEN WILL FALL OFF HER THRONE ON THIS ONE !

    And as if our beloved Malaysia has not enough of WORLD’S FIRST SCANDAL FROM PETER PAN AND MAGPIE SYNDROMES TOP LEADERS NOW DOWN TO HAVING NURSERIES IN THE HIGHEST AND MOST AUGUST COUNCIL IN THE LAND ! Have we all gone CUCKOO ? It is the BIG PICTURE NOT THE BIG PACIFIER YB ! I choked when I realised what it was all about !

    2. ‘ QUEEN OF SQUASH RETIRES ‘. Congratulations to someone who put our beloved Malaysia on the map on her own ability.

    IF THE GERIATRIC OLYMPIC COUNCIL OF MALAYSIA WHICH ONCE HAD OUR GREATEST STATESMAN TUN ABDUL RAZAK AS ITS PRESIDENT HAD NOT BEEN LAZY AND INEFFICIENT, OUR GOOD DATO SERI NICOL WOULD HAVE WON AT LEAST 4 OLYMPIC GOLDS FOR MALAYSIA.

    Even roughneck fellows competing in moguls and extreme snow sports were recognised as Olympic sports and yet SQUASH which pre-dated these recent fangle sports by at least 100 years is not recognised. Something is wrong somewhere with SELF-SERVING LIP SERVICE AT PLAY ! This Augean Stable should be cleaned out and let SADDIQ takes over.

    3. ‘ SINGAPORE LAUNCHES SUBMARINE IN GERMANY.’ This headline certainly catches my eye.

    Singapore is slowly becoming known as the country which makes the WRONG CALLS ALL THE TIME ! Why ?

    This order of 4 midget submarines for shallow waters was probably given when our Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes Leaderships assumed POWER in 2010.

    With the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elites not in hand but in the pocket, Singapore with irrational exuberance ordered these midget submarines for shallow waters to OOUNTER THE MALAY THREAT OF LEE KUAN YEW’S CREATION !

    And the Lee Kuan Yew’s creation of the TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays Killer on course to be signed and ratified, how can Singapore miss anything in 2010 !

    Not only that shortly thereafter, the Singapore Business Times boasted THAT THE TPPA/CPTPP MALAYSIA/MALAYS KILLER WILL SAVE SINGAPORE AT LEAST ONE BILLION SINGAPORE DOLLARS A YEAR ! This meant our beloved Malaysia with the TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays Killer will LOSE at least RM 3 Billions a year !

    Or this money translated into German midget submarine terms – FOUR GERMAN MIDGET SUBMARINES FOR S$ 1 BILLION ON DEFERRED TERMS. In 2010, this was a bargain or dirt cheap to deter those THREATENING MALAYS ACROSS THE SEAS !

    But as always for our beloved Malaysia, MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. These German midget submarines for shallow waters can now be used for tourists to admire the sea life and corals off Keppel Harbour, Singapore. Why ?

    IT WAS RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT MALAYSIA’S WORLD’S BEST DEFENCE IS BY AMENDING THE CONSTITUTION WITH A 2/3rd MAJORITY BY THESE WORDS. ‘ THAT NO RAW WATER BE EXPORTED, SOLD OR TRANSPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE’

    Just a few words on a paper can turn into Singapore’s Achilles Heel !

    By being intransigent on the belief that the Malaysians are stupid and cannot THINK, Singapore dragged this simple issue for so long that now our BELOVED MALAYSIA COMES UP WITH THE FINEST WEAPON FOR HER OWN SELF-DEFENCE IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST WITHIN INTERNATIONAL JURISPRUDENCE !

    I suggest that all those smart legal eagles of Singapore write a sequel to their boastful book on how they beat Malaysia on the Pulau Batu Puteh. Only pre-puberty schoolboys in short pants do not know it takes TWO TO TANGO ! Why ?

    It was because the Federal Government did not take this matter to The Hague for over 50 years. As soon as it was in 2004, the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government rushed to The Hague with the oldest lawyer ( before my time ) from Cambridge and lost promptly. Is this TWO TO TANGO OR NOT ?

    Further, with a declining economy which is aged, Singapore’s 2019/20 Budget will increase taxes and expansionary. The latter underlines the contraction of the economy for the next 12 months. Expansionary means nothing in Singapore.

    THIS IS THE HARD SCENARIO OF A 7.5% GDP 20th Century Cold War 1948-1989 economy which has now gone forever WITHOUT THE BLACK UNDER-COUNTER TRADES IN ARMS ETC which explains why Singapore’s GDP did not breach 3% GDP from 2002-2017 ! The Black Trades which provided the extra 2-3 % GDP, explains. Looking back, this Black Trade business was huge, very huge for Singapore !

    Singapore’s defence against the self-created Malay Threats is now bristling with the best armaments in the neighbourhood.

    Our beloved Malaysia’s defence is MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    With the recent DISCOVERY THAT BY AMENDING THE CONSTITUTION ‘ THAT NO RAW WATER MAY BE EXPORTED, SOLD OR TRANSPORTED OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OR BORDERS OF THE FEDERATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE.’ and a loyal citizenry, we need not buy Russian super-duper jets to counter Singapore’s Lend-Lease F-35s ! Just a Pilot pen and a piece of paper will do costing only RM 3 under the New and Incorruptible Government.

    My observations have been highlighted and proven that with only one brilliant and courageous Leader Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who uses his brain all the time, MALAYSIA IS NOW ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD AND ON THE WAY UPWARDS TO THE GREATS OF VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as the MINISTERS OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE THINK IN BROAD STROKES OR TERMS FOR THE BIG PICTURE AND ARE NOT MOSQUITO-MINDED !

    You and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah must have found out long ago that it is a lot of fun to watch grand-children grow up. My concern has always for them having a sound education and acquire self-confidence by the natural process of their minds. For years when I ferried the grand-daughter to her favourite SMKs, I always reminded her with a few easy to remember phrases for her tests. And with satisfaction, as time passed by, she has grown in confidence and slowly learning the ability to think in a logical way. Not only that, she can interact with the big and the small of all communities NORMALLY.

    Looking at my grand-daughter and the antics of the adults of Singapore, I taught her how to think by using her brain to consider all options before deciding on a course of action. Most Malaysian students are very good at remembering but no one taught them how to think logically. Surprisingly, Lee Kuan Yew also lacked this in-born virtue considering all his 47 Failed Public Policies which were not all to the good.

    It is no shame that Malaysia can amend its Constitution to bar the export, sale and transportation of raw water because Singapore did not behave in a gentlemanly sort of way.

    I am certain this IDEA WILL NOT BE IMPLEMENTED GIVEN THE GOODWILL BETWEEN SOVEREIGN NATIONS.

    As it is, Singapore has won in all the little attempts which concerned some rocks, KTM, HSR, free water paid for by Malaysia etc. Yet her GDP is still mired in the doldrums for 16 years. One can only subscribe this deficit to the lack of brain-power in Singapore.

    For example, the elites forgot about the goodwill and credits of Lee Kuan Yew with the super-powers which are as yet unutilised. This will diminish without any doubt with the passage of time. They forgot for 25 years !

    But the elites find it fun to poke and complain about Malaysia which did nothing from all material aspects. It is crystal clear that Singapore’s Policies towards Malaysia were based on a wrong premise. What is it ? It is for their elites to find out before it is too late after such a long hiatus of 16 years !

    I was certainly surprised to find Singapore still stuck in its 20th Century time warp of no return bolstered by Lee Kuan Yew’s Bluffology or BS. With time, this game of smoke and broken mirrors could not be sustained.

    And horror of horrors, Singapore put all its eggs into Malaysian Leaderships with Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes. WHERE ARE THE PUKKA SINGAPORE DOCTORS ?

    Surprisingly, we Malaysians do not see a Plan B either. Someone must be sleeping in Singapore’s National Interest.

    With the failure of the Lee Kuan Yew’s creation, the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP, the ill-conceived Temasek which turned out to be full of the Gnomes of Zurich, the text-book FTs imports and the 2 casinos in a crowded neighbourhood, WHAT IS SINGAPORE’S PLAN B TO DEAL WITH MALAYSIA AND AT THE SAME TIME CREATE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE INHERITORS OF LEE KUAN YEW ?

    By reiterating the terms and conditions of the 1962 Water Agreement over and over again, it seems Singapore lacks VISION, CREATIVITY. INNOVATION in this e-biz World.

    As I have said before, free water did not benefit Singapore. But the 1962 Water Agreement, loss of the Rocks and KTM etc DID NOT PREVENT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO BE ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. See the POWER OF YOUR BRAIN WHEN DEALING WITH OTHERS. You thought for years that they were with you on the 88th Floor. BUT ACTUALLY THEIR MINDS WERE IN THE BASEMENT ! Acheh !

    On Singapore’s Achilles Heel which they thought they never had which is the Amendment to the Constitution ‘ No raw water maybe exported, sold or transported outside the jurisdiction or borders of the Federation.’

    Malaysia now rides the high horse in the realms of jurisprudence.

    We mind our own Legal Business within our borders with our Amendment to the Constitution via a 2/3 majority. What can be better than this ? No need for Russian super-duper jets ! THIS WILL PUT AN EXPIRY DATE ON ALL SINGAPORE’S 99 YEAR LEASES AND WIPE OUT BILLIONS OF SINGAPORE DOLLARS WORTH OF PROPERTY LEASE VALUES PRONTO !

    But as we all are aware, you are a tolerant and patient person who has been gently nudging Singapore to do something gentlemanly and not boast about HOW THEY MANAGE TO OBTAIN 3 SENS PER 1,000 GALLONS OF RAW WATER FOR 50 YEARS WITH A ONE-SIDED AGREEMENT AGAINST THE NATIONAL INTEREST OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. All normal adults should be able to work this one out.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Because we Malaysians are not stupid unlike those who think we are.

    A Monday morning is always a serious morning for all of us working people. Even my friends the pair of bulbul seemed to be out of sorts this early morning with a light drizzle. There were no chirping of singing as I left the house. Not to worry. They will be back to their normal-selves tomorrow.

    However, tomorrow will be another day. And soon, the Malaysians will go down to the Republic of Singapore to find out what Singapore has to offer to apply some balm to the wounds caused by the ridiculous 1962 3 sens per 1,000 gallons of raw water. OK.

    Singapore has been riding the high horse of a water-tight Agreement which was entirely one-sided since 1962. Remarks which were forthcoming from the tropical isle were not very pleasant for Malaysian ears. OK.

    HAS ANYONE IN MALAYSIA THOUGHT ABOUT PUTTING INTO THE CONSTITUTION OF MALAYSIA THAT WITH A TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY AMENDMENT. ‘IN FUTURE NO RAW MAYBE EXPORTED, SOLD OR TRANSPORTED OUT OF THE BORDERS OR JURISDICTION OF MALAYSIA WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 1962 AGREEMENTS WITH SINGAPORE ‘?

    Has anyone thought about this Achilles Heel of Singapore.

    This Amendment to the Constitution will CUT SHORT BY AT LEAST 50 YEARS OR HALF OF ALL THE LAND LEASES OF 99 YEARS IN SINGAPORE ! The loss is tremendous or horrific.

    THIS IS ONLY AN IDEA WHICH WILL NEVER BE IMPLEMENTED. But it can be implemented NOW. No problem.

    As a long time friend of Singapore from taxi-drivers to billionaires, I sincerely hope the present Singapore Government see that this is the 21st Century and not the 20th Century. We got to work together to exist.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Who think we are stupid ? We just amend the Constitution forbidding the export of raw or (treated) water outside the borders of Malaysia to cook a golden goose. It is as simple as this. But we are good people who do no harm. No problem, Tun.

  220. mubarakchan Feb 17,2019 1:18 PM

    Tun

    Another morning, another day of peace and harmony for our beloved Malaysia which unlike Singapore has only to worry about keeping a clean set of books for the Government and administer the Nation NORMALLY for the Rakyat.

    NORMAL means many things like a cheap price of rice, the availability of jobs for all especially the new graduates, good transportation with cheap fares and accessibility, affordable homes, wonderful schools with dedicated teachers for the children, a motorcar and a better life-style than our parents and care for our aged, single mothers, neglected children and addicts. These were all within reach up to 2003.

    Thereafter, 2004-2018, Leaderships with the Peter Pan and the Magpie Syndromes took. The whole beloved country was turned into a mess. This was bolstered by fake information and loans. No decent Leader of any country in the World go into hot relationships with the Leader of another country in private retreats. The word is NEVER !

    It is easy to govern our beloved Malaysia if a person knows how to do it like you Tun. But the moment the template of governance is changed to another format, the whole country comes to a boil in silence until suddenly there is a huge eruption. Fortunately, as I have observed the 2 incidents, 13 May 1969 and 9 May 2018, the consequences which followed turned out to be a sea change for the better.

    It is time also for all the Rakyat to pull together and unite for a better beloved Malaysia. The glue or lubricant for this is a normal and sound economy ! Not those fancy Sexy or Free Murderers Bills !

    Before 9 May 2018, Malaysia was already trussed up and ready to be delivered via the TPPA/CPTPP to Lee Kuan Yew’s little Singapore not as a sacrificial lamb but a whole Nation with 31 million honest and innocent souls, men, women and children – to this land of NOTHING but BLUFFOLOGY or BS ! How can any decent Malaysian, man or woman tolerates this ?

    With time, and time is of the essence, as long as we the Malaysians are united in peace harmony and prosperity, Singapore will just diminish in its own lack of brain-power adventures.

    Singapore has already lost BIG in terms of Leadership. Not only that, I reckon she has also lost a large part of her reserves from the profits of the Black Under-counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 after Lee Kuan Yew was flattered, seduced and entrapped by the wiles of the gnomes of Zurich !

    What is the loss of a few rocks, free water, KTM and the steel rails ( all contrived CORRUPTION ) to Singapore when one Malaysian Leader with brilliance and courage could put our beloved Malaysia onto the pedestal with a chance of progressing rapidly upwards to the likes of the Greats of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan ?

    And this Malaysian Leader is our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad !

    See the POWER of the BRAIN and the goodness or the evil which it may engender !

    Lee Kuan Yew implemented 47 Failed Policies which harmed Singapore’s own and aimed at our beloved Malaysia to CREATE UNHAPPINESS AMONGST US, HOSPITABLE AND FRIENDLY MALAYSIANS. At the end of the day, Man proposes. God disposes, the results of his negative Policies are recorded and for all to see and read ! Lee Kuan Yew was like Icarus who reached for the Sun and became a cropper.

    Just a few days ago, our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad paid a night visit to a shopping Mall. He is no stranger to find out on the ground the life and times of the Rakyat.

    In the 1980s, I bumped into him around the corner at about 8.30 p.m. with Tun Dr Siti Hasmah and one bodyguard at the Ampang Shopping Mall. And again likewise in the Sogo Shopping Mall in the 1990s. A caring and concerned Prime Minister.

    If I bumped into Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad twice for a person like me who seldom venture out at night, therefore, he must have been making many regular visits not only to the Malls but also to the stalls dotted around Kuala Lumpur to get a real feel of things.

    With a good Prime Minister like this, the members of his Government with DSAI and the Team by his side should work doubly hard to show the Rakyat the results as YBs doing a NORMAL JOB.

    It is often forgotten that in history there is no record of rich men but only of Rulers and Warriors. And history is the finest arbiter of the TRUTH.

    Our endeavours, the successes and the failures are all recorded and cannot be erased. But our money and material wealth will soon be gone with the wind as time goes by !

    Is it not surprising that the elites of Singapore forgot all about Lee Kuan Yew’s goodwill and credits with the super-powers of the World for 25 years ! it was unutilised for 25 years. Soon this will diminish in value with the passage of time ! And these fellows wasted time and money with their self-created obsession about doing down Malaysia. Yet Malaysia with just one indomitable Leader to show the way is now up and running to the stars and the Moon ! Man proposes. God disposes.

    Now that the do-gooders are in the saddle, it is time for all to put themselves to the wheel and create an eternal and unique Malaysia for ourselves and our descendants. THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE LEFT. NO JOKE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem if we do all things NORMALLY !

    Tun

    Unlike the mornings when I ferried my grand-daughter to her favourite SMK and had the privilege of listening to the chirping and the singing of the pair of resident bulbuls nestled in the young banyan tree, this morning I woke up not without care but a horrifying thought which flashed across my mind.

    It was the performance of the New and Incorruptible Government and its equally incorruptible Ministers which struck a bell in my mind !

    Their pronouncements and their actions happened within less than 9 months.

    Have they over-reached or over-reacted in their eagerness to display their ability to do things or was it just absolute power corrupts absolutely ( Lord Acton – 1850 ) ? Whatever these were, the events certainly triggered off alarm bells in my mind that GREEDINESS IS NOT ONLY CONFINED TO MATERIAL THINGS LIKE MONEY BUT ALSO TO A WEAKNESS TO SHOW-OFF AN APPARENT CLEVERNESS OF ONE-SELF.

    To me, whether the person is a Minister or a YB, it is just a job to be performed in a NORMAL MANNER. There is no necessity to draw attention to one’s cleverness with whistles and bells.

    With the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership and its adherents, their corruption in Power and Materialism have been exposed. Will the New and Incorruptible Government be exposed on their greediness for Power and not Materialism ?

    I ask these pertinent questions because our beloved Malaysia was saved from CERTAIN SLAVERY AND LIVING DEATH FROM THE JAWS OF THE LEE KUAN YEW CREATION, TPPA/CPTPP, BY OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WHO HAS NOW PUT THE COUNTRY ON A PROPER PEDESTAL TO ADVANCE UPWARDS TO THE LIKES OF THE GREATS, VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA, GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN. It is because our beloved Malaysia will NOT GET A SECOND CHANCE TO TAKE HER PROPER PLACE UNDER THE SUN.

    I offer my constructive observations on events which should not be interpreted as loaded with evil intent. I am a Constitutional Conformist since 1954 with logic based on facts not fiction or emotions. Here are some of my constructive observations :-

    1. The black shoes, swimming pools, Vice-Chancellor, Maybank-Kim Eng Securities appointment. Lee Kuan Yew’s sister-in-law created Kim Eng Securities from a piece of paper which ballooned into billions of ringgits via Maybank, new curriculums, better perks without asking or due consideration etc. If all the bullets have been spent, the gun will be empty in times of need !

    2. SEX concerning a few urban folk is the priority by way of the SEXUAL HARASSMENT BILL. This has been going on even before Samson and Delilah !

    3. The ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY BILL to save the lives of a few murderers whilst there are thousands of the aged, single mothers, neglected and abused children, and young addicts who require better and better assistance so that the World will say that our beloved Malaysia looks after its OWN.

    This is frivolous CORRUPTION OF ANOTHER KIND like the NS CAMPS CAPER TO EXTRACT MONEY OUT OF GOVERNMENT COFFERS BY WAY OF CONSTRUCTION, TRANSPORT, UNIFORMS, CATERING ETC.

    Not only that our PDRM will not only be stretched but OUT_GUNNED like in Mexico. Armed gangs will roam the land creating another profitable industry like politics, NGOs, tax-free RM 2 incorporated places of worship !

    ON THE ONE HAND THE LIVES OF A FEW MURDERERS ARE SAVED. AND ON THE OTHER HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT VICTIMS ARE MURDERED IN THE STREETS. Where is the LOGIG ?

    Vital and Essential Laws to re-vitalise the country’s economy are NEGLECTED like the Companies Act 1965, the Bankruptcy Act 1967 and the Trustees Act 1949.

    Why were the Ministers of Law 2004-2918 so lazy, ignorant and neglected their duties and responsibilities to the Rakyat ?

    4. Many years ago,I was a Trustee of the National Art Gallery in charge of the expenses. 2 artists who are now dead, requested that the Gallery to sponsor them for a visit to a minor art exhibition in Fukuoka, Japan. I refused because the Gallery had no funds and the exhibition was not important. I soon LOST MY JOB.

    The same thing happened to me in Sime Darby. There was no bankruptcy for the 18 years when I was a Director. In 1992, the Sime Darby executives kicked me out who created their jobs, a rash of buying and selling took place. Thereafter. Sime Darby was bankrupted in 1996 at RM 1.2 Billion and 2010 at RM 2.10 Billion. The executives remained in place. No one was charged. No one was jailed.

    5. The sudden closure of 1 KM of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur.

    6. The Malaysian penchant for fake degrees and titles.

    HOWEVER MY TOP MARKS GO TO THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS IN THE INTERESTS OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL WHICH ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE, MINISTRY OF FINANCE FOR STRIVING TO KEEP A NORMAL SET OF BOOKS AND THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT FOR LOGICAL ACTION. Let us call a spade a spade in the normal administration of a country by any Government Leader without the Peter Pan and the Magpie Syndromes.

    For a politician, it is no excuse in this e-World to claim ignorance because his or her SELF-SERVING ACTIONS AND NON-MATERIALISTIC GREED ARE FOR ALL TO SEE.

    To be honest ( a favourite phrase of English TV commentators ), I SINCERELY HOPE THAT WITH THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE WILL SUCCEED. Otherwise, our beloved Malaysia will not get a second chance again. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem as long as the POWERFUL BEHAVE NORMALLY.

    Tun

    Again as the sun rises, my resident bulbul began to chirp and sing. By and by, I heard not one bird but two in the bush. Both were performing a duet of sorts in the cool of the morning. This morning was special. The distant horizon was splashed with various shades of gold to orange as the Sun assumed its ascendancy for the day. When I was a boy, my mother always told me that an orange sky liked this would foretell a fine day ahead. For a Life-time, I could confirm she was correct. With the peaceful accents of a normal Malaysian morning, one expects to be jolted by some explosive headlines on some dumb issues, thus :-

    1. ‘ THE SEXUAL HARASSMENT BILL WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE NEXT SITTING OF THE DEWAN RAKYAT.’

    2. ‘ THE DEATH PENALTY TO BE ABOLISHED ‘

    I have strong feelings that these two Bills are like putting the cart before the horse in a struggling emerging country like our beloved Malaysia. I am not against these Bills per se when these are presented many decades down the road. These Bills sound nice and correct in some Western salon of rich ladies and gentlemen trying to make amends for their inherited wealth like opposing the production of incomes arising from the sale of palm oil by poor emerging nations like Indonesia and Malaysia.

    Not only that, thanks to the leaders of the Singapore Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with Peter Pan and Magpie Syndromes, our beloved Malaysia’s progress was put back a generation or 25 years. We are lucky to suffer a reversal of our hard-earned fortunes only because the Lee Kuan Yew contrived TPPA/CPTPP would have enslaved all of us, the Rakyat forever and ever. This is the Life which is not carved out for those with Peter Pan or Magpie Syndromes.

    On the Sexual Harassment Bill, our beloved Malaysia must be the first emerging country to promulgate such an act.

    Has the Minister found out how many cases of sexual harassment Malaysia has per day ? Or how many rapes in India per day ?

    Comparatively, how many aged, single wives and poor and neglected children our beloved Malaysia has and does not care for ? These are the realpolitik of Malaysian Life from its very beginnings.

    First things first. Let us all, the New and Incorruptible Government and all alleviate the sufferings of the real people, the aged, the single mothers, poor and neglected children first. And this alone will take decades of charity even if we start now. Then, the World will say Malaysia looks after its OWN.

    But wi
