TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

Future of Democracy in Asia 164

 

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.

    In support of your comments of the Scourge of Corruption in our beloved Malaysia during 2004 to 2018, I am of the opinion that Corruption knew no bounds during this dark period of our history.

    Who would expect men and women steeped in the religion, well-brought up in education, from esteemed backgrounds and carefully groomed for important roles to administer the Nation, all went for something common garden like weakness of the flesh and the soft under-belly at the flip of the proverbial coin.

    Without exception, men and women holding important top posts in iconic public institutions were literally all on the take of corrupt money.

    These people are the highest ranking Public or Civil Servants in the land specially trained and selected for the jobs. The elitist group which should form the bulwark of any Nation in support of the Political Leadership and the incumbent Government.

    With the daily exposures of wrong doings in the thefts from venerable Trusts like the FELDA and Tabung Haji, 1MDB, by appointed Trustees, one wonders who can be trusted these days by the Rakyat. This is one form of Corruption by those in Power.

    Then we have the common garden type of Corruption when money was given to Civil Servants by individuals for favours.

    The only solution IS TO ENFORCE THE LAWS ON ANYONE FOUND INVOLVED IN CORRUPTION PRACTICES WHETHER IN PUBLIC SERVICE OR THE GIVER IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR WITH HARSH DRACONIAN MEASURES AS PERMITTED BY THE LAWS.

    An important innovation to stop Corruption is for the Government to CONFISCATE WHATEVER ILL-GOTTEN GAINS IN TERMS OF MONEY, PROPERTIES OR OTHER ASSETS STOLEN BY THESE CROOKS AND HIDDEN OVERSEAS UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES. The money so derived should be for the socio-economic development for the Rakyat.

    If the Government does not do this, a small time crook will wallop a RM Billion or two and willingly go to jail for a few years and be a free man thereafter to enjoy his loot.

    THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOW SET A PRECEDENT BY PROMULGATING DRACONIAN LEGAL MEASURES TO TRY TO CONTAIN THIS CORRUPTION EVIL ONCE AND FOR ALL.

    This is much more rewarding than some airy-fairy Private Member’s Bill on TVET and forgot about the 300,000 young Malay bankrupts suffering under the neglect by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring Government which misled them by not revising the Bankrupt Act 1967 but only attached an Amendment to it. Vide. The Star, Reader’s Letter. May 2018.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    This morning was calm and peaceful.

    But the media is full of hot air blowing from all directions especially from South of the Border which comments become more and more curious day by day. There is no logic in all the comments as expressed officially and unofficially. I am as perplexed and confused as anyone else who just drop by from Mars or Rip Van Winkle from his sleep.

    Why the sudden outburst against Singapore’s obsession, its nemesis called Malaysia ?

    Fellows who hold high honours from the Ivy League and Oxbridge.

    Fellows who were carefully nurtured by Lee Kuan Yew no less who gained a Double First in Law at Cambridge which he never forgot even though he did not leave it behind.

    Fellows who are supposed to stand on their own two feet and think for themselves the best course of Policies for Singapore and her citizens.

    My view is that their present outburst on Air and Water will not hold any advantage to Singapore in the 21st Century as the record showed.

    The record showed that Singapore could turn the PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT OF MALAYSIA BETWEEN 2004-2018 TO HER UTMOST ADVANTAGE FROM THE ROCKS OF PULAU BATU PUTEH THROUGH A ENCYCLOPEDIC LIST OF SPOILS RIGHT DOWN TO THE GIGANTIC SALE OF KIM ENG SECURITIES TO MAYBANK AND BEYOND TO THAT IIH FELLOW.

    This is one side of the Singapore Coin and on the other, DURING THIS HORRIBLE PERIOD MALAYSIA GAINED ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. It was all one sided 2003-2018.

    And now through the air waves emanating from Singapore, we are told in no uncertain terms by her foremost elite that,

    ‘ VERY TYPICAL – WHAT THEY EXPECT IS SUBORDINATING OF OUR INTERESTS TO THEIR INTERESTS……INTRINSIC SHORT-COMMINGS OF A SYSTEM BASED ON THE DOMINANCE OF A PARTICULAR RACE WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED PARTICULARLY SINCE WE DO BETTER WITH A DIFFERENT SYSTEM……..WHY A SMALL COUNTRY SHOULD NEVER BEHAVE AS A SMALL COUNTRY……’

    I have never read such absurdity in my Life. Who cares about Singapore whether she thinks big or not. It is not our problem.

    Singapore’s Political System is Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communistic imposed on the citizens without their knowledge and supported by Apparatchiks (elites) and the West. Somewhat like the People’s Republic of China. This System was known to the West from the beginning. It was called.’benign dictatorship’ (which dictatorship is benign ?) or ‘capitalistic authoritarianism.’ or ‘ rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.) Two prominent Indians, Amartya Sen the Nobel Prize winner and journalist TJS George – Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore. 1972, opposed the System.

    Malaysia’s System which is democratic and successful is Malaysia Style Democracy with a Malay Bias with our loyalty and devotion to the Constitution, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans.

    The problem with Singapore today is :-

    1. The HUGE VOID OF LEADERSHIP LEFT VACANT BY THE DEPARTURE OF LEE KUAN YEW WHOSE OVERBEARING AND DOMINEERING CHARACTER now shows. No one could fill the void.

    2. THE HUGE LOSS OF REVENUE FROM THE BLACK TRADES IN ARMS, MONEY LAUNDERING, SANCTIONS BREAKING, SMUGGLING, ETC WHICH ALL AMOUNTED TO 2% – 3% of her GDP from 2002 to 2018. This market was hijacked by the BRICS after the end of the Cold War due to Uncle Sam’s spiel which back-fired on him, ‘Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights ‘.

    3. THE ATTEMPT TO FILL THIS REVENUE VOID WITH THE ILL-CONCEIVED TEMASEK, THE 2 CASINOS, THE FT IMPORTS, THE MALAYSIA KILLER TPPA/CPTPP WHICH WERE HASTILY CREATED AFTER 2002. All failed. Singapore now has NOTHING. Thanks to flatteries by the gnomes of Zurich as well.

    4. LEE KUAN YEW’S LIFE-LONG OBSESSION TO BELITTLE HIS NEMESIS MALAYSIA WAS A DANGEROUS DISTRACTION WHICH WASTED TIME AND MONEY. If he had taken a NORMAL approach, he would gain much more and much influence over the Malaysian Leadership for many decades. But the route he had taken NOW SHOWS THE WARTS WITHOUT ANY SOLID ADVANTAGE but little rocks or ringgits here and there WITH SINGAPORE’S GOVERNMENT REVENUE UNADRESSED.

    5. WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT ATTACK IS THE BEST FORM OF DEFENCE. AND ALSO THE FACT THAT SINGAPORE IS STILL USING ANCIENT 20TH CENTURY IDEAS AND METHODS LIKE BLUFFOLOGY, AS LONG AS MALAYSIA STANDS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE INTERNATIONAL LAW AND BEHAVIOUR, THE SINGAPOREANS WILL MAKE THEMSELVES THAT MUCH SMALLER !

    The fire and the fury only confirm :-

    1. The huge loss suffered by Singapore from the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives,

    2. The loss of the US Democrat Mojo,

    3. The Loss of the Under Counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989,

    4. The loss of its Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which permitted her to take whatever Singapore wanted,

    5. The gigantic loss of the huge money reserves from the Under Counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 which would have been much depleted by now,

    6. The loss in the drop of her regular revenue from tourist receipts, intra ASEAN trades etc.,

    7. The loss of Singapore’s ability to think out of the box,

    8. The loss of the general influence as exerted by Lee Kuan Yew in his hey-day,

    9. The loss of profitability of her GLCs like the SIA etc.

    10. The loss of leverage in a World of Big Boys and not Small Boys. And so on.

    Even with the paid for delivery of free Malaysian Water, Singapore could not gain anything. She lost her socio-economic momentum for over 25 years – one generation ! Time is of the essence.

    We Malaysians were/are definitely NOT the aggressors of any country or peoples. IF AT ALL THE RECORDS SHOW THAT SINGAPORE LIVED BY THE SWORD AND MAY DIE BY HER OWN SWORD. This unfortunate event has nothing to do with us peace loving Malaysians. This is confirmed by the fact that the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government neglected to make sure our SUKHOI 29 fighter jets fly.

    So how to face militarised Singapore with 300,000 military, Gurkha regiments, drones, tanks, F-35 jets, submarines, balloons, long range artillery, AWACS, Apaches, spies like swallows in CNBC, Bloomberg, CNN, ducks, tycoons, journalists, senior Malaysian Civil Servants, secret caverns, corvettes, Uncle Sam, sir raid siren warnings every day and night, armour plated buildings with air raid shelters etc.

    My sincere suggestion is that it pays for Singapore to confederate with the UK or Scotland or be the 53rd State of the US or a Province of India to ensure her future because it seems to me that the elites of Singapore have run out of white rabbits in the proverbial hat after Lee Kuan Yew. So, they pick on our beloved Malaysia again like in the 20th Century. An ancient saying,’ A GOOD HORSE DOES NOT RETURN TO OLD PASTURES ! ‘

    With the brilliance and courage of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI with the Team by his side, our beloved Malaysia only looks forward to co-operate and work with Singapore and ASEAN for the common good for the utmost social and economic benefits for our Rakyat. No more. No less This is our focus – not religion, race, politics or whatever.

    AND THE FUTURE IS VERY BRIGHT FOR ALL OF US SINGAPORE, ASEAN, MALAYSIA.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our record even showed Singapore could create the Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 from which she got all that she wanted. What more does Singapore want ?

    I am curious about a media Report that a Private Member’s Bill concerning Technical Vocational Education and Training or TVET being presented soon in the Dewan Rakyat. Arising from this a Commission would be established to ensure the graduates get a fair wage. This Bill seems to be just ornamental or garnish for some unknown reason. How many such graduates would benefit ? And this Bill will take years and years to implemented if at all.

    Have we forgotten the Minister of Law in the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government’s superfluous amendment which was just attached to the Bankruptcy Act 1967 which she called a REVISED BANKRUPTCY ACT OF 1967 ?

    She misled over 200,000 young bankrupts (Malays) just before the 14th GE. Someone alleged she did it due to pressure from the finance sector.

    And she was not aware that this important Bankruptcy Act 1967 is always revised up to date by Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia.

    It is time that people in power should not bluff the Rakyat and waste the Government’s time and money on claiming to REVISE the Bankruptcy Act 1967 which she did not. The Act still has 19th Century Victorian punishment rules. Vide. The Star. Reader’s Letter May 2018

    And it is alleged also that this same person wanted to spend RM 350 Million to convert the RRIM Research Station at Welwyn Garden City into a sports facility for Malaysian athletes when she was in charge of another Ministry. This would have meant flying hundreds of Malaysian athletes to and fro between Malaysia and Britain many times a year.

    In fact all she needed to do was to clean out the Jurassic Olympic Council of Malaysia to put Squash on the Olympic Programme. With Dato Nicole David’s skills, Malaysia would have won 4-5 Olympic Gold Medals years ago without spending millions of ringgits for NOTHING.

    In both cases, due consideration and common sense over matters of Public Interest should hold sway.

    On the one hand, over 200,000 young bankrupts (Malays) are still locked in bondage due to the neglect by an Uncaring Minister.

    On the other, how many graduates benefit from the TVET Bill which might not see the light of day ? Why not deal with the 200,000 young bankrupts (Malays) first or both together ?

    It is important that public figures are well-informed all the time but not some of the time.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Another wonderful morning today as we wake up from our peaceful slumber amidst our peaceful environment of our beloved Malaysia.

    Why are some people so unhappy ? Why ?

    Maybe they have been thoroughly brainwashed to think that everything is better South of the Border only and not North of the Border.

    Brainwashing is unlike brushing one’s teeth which we want to be super clean every morning. It is applied on weak and simple souls with nothing between their eyes so to speak.

    Brainwashing can be so EFFECTIVE THAT SINGAPORE COULD MAKE A PUPPET OUT OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT FROM 2004 – 2018 !

    This is the nub of the hot-air or BLUFFOLOGY emanating through our southern border for months now.

    For a cognoscenti of Causeway Politcs like myself since 1954, this absurdity is all very unnecessary ! People would jump on me if I use the word ‘CHILDISH’ especially on those from Ivy League or Oxbridge types who are fond of reading the latest tomes from Kino or Borders.

    My advice to them is ‘Don’t waste money or time.’. Why ? My reply is,’ Just use your common sense based on FACTS. OK !

    WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE TO SINGAPORE TO GAIN A FEW METRES OF MURKY SEA WATER ?

    SINGAPORE EVEN BEFORE 2004 HAD GAINED MUCH FROM MALAYSIA.

    BUT BETWEEN 2004-2018, SINGAPORE CREATED THE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND TOOK WHATEVER SHE WANTED eg. Pulau Batu Putih (inaction for centuries), unlimited sand, 2 sens (depreciated) per 1000 gallons, airspace, Chief Editor of UMNO owned NSTP, the 25 miles of steel rails with KTM, attempts to gain more from the Bursa or other marts, CPF, the broad and cheap AVENUE, the IIH fellow and other inserts in share-broking and finance houses, etc.

    Our beloved Malaysia welcomes Singaporeans who live, work and play amongst us eg. their investments in Malls, restaurants, businesses and all. I am aware of many and plenty. This is the Private Sector. No problem.

    All Singaporeans and foreign friends are welcome to live, work and play in Malaysia.

    But when our beloved Malaysia’s Sovereignty and National Interest is impinged by encroachment without arrangement, then THIS IS GIVING NO FACE AND ILLEGAL GIVING MALAYSIA THE IMPRESSION OF AN OVERLORDHIP AND OVERBEARING ATTITUDE.

    These are not good vibes between ‘geographical twins’ after some of our folks were brainwashed by the Singapore media as abang-adek, 5 eyes, private and quiet retreats, very hot relationships between Singapore and its puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    Hopefully, Malaysia and Singapore will sit down to talk-talk over Malaysian nasi lemak and teh tarik, and Singapore’s Hainanese chicken rice and chili crabs and Malaysia/Singapore cendol to sort this old twin and young twin matters out once and for all.

    The future POTENTIAL IS EXREMELY BRIGHT NOT ONLY FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BUT ALSO FOR SINGAPORE AND OF COURSE ASEAN.

    Let us all grow up and join up to take advantage of ALL THAT IS AVAILABLE TO US NOW AND NOT SPLIT HAIRS OVER AIR AND WATER !

    It is time to grasp all opportunities with both our hands and turn them into realities to benefit all our citizens. Time is of the essence.

    It is A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE FOR US TO COME SO FAR AND CANNOT UNITE FOR SOCIO-ECONOMIC BENEFITS FOR THE PEOPLE. Surely, recent events were purely coincidental !

    However, without bothering with the negatives as expressed above, I am exceedingly happy and relaxed with the full realization that so far so good, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat have traipsed the narrow line of Democracy through the years as exemplified the anti-ICERD demonstration against an IDEA, the 9 May GE, temple riot (contained by PDRM) etc. Any dissension is limited to hot air and Suits of paper arrows. Hopefully, democratic practices will be practised more by all.

    It is not the concerns or my happiness which I feel like commenting this morning.

    It is how we SMILE that matters.

    Our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is smiling much more these days than during his 22 Year Administration ! This what it should be.

    I suggest his WHOLE GOVERNMENT TAKES TO SMILING when given the OPPORTUNITY. This is the best antidote for winning against the naysayers.

    Not only that, the good hormones will flow, the optics are absolutely clear for all and sundry that to see that all are under control with confidence. And the best of all, without saying much, all can see for themselves with their own eyes to get a ‘FEEL GOOD FEELING’.

    This is a subject known as PSYCHOLOGY which our Tun understands very well. KEEP SMILING FOLKS.

    UNLIKE THAT TOUSLE HAIR FELLOW WITH A HALF-PAST SIX DEMEANOUR WITHOUT A TIE, WHITE SHIRT AND SUIT, OFFICIALLY PROCLAIMING THAT SINGAPORE HARBOUR EXTENDED ITS BORDER RECENTLY AND SINGAPORE WILL DEFEND ITS TERRITORIAL WATERS – To the last drop of blood, I presume. Was he serious ? Were you impressed ? Have you ever heard of 88, Jalan Geylang, Singapore ? Would any Malaysian die for a few metres of murky sea water ?

    Don’t be ridiculous folks ! Come over to JB for our Malaysian nasi lemak, satay and teh tarik, and Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice and Chili Crabs followed by the Malaysia/Singapore cendol and talk things over. WE ARE ALL TOO YOUNG TO DIE OVER A FEW METRES OF MURKY SEA WATER, FOLKS ! And besides since we are geographical twins (courtesy Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad), I die, you die or you die I die. Pour le vouz francais, folks !

    Tun, please smile broadly with DSAI and the Team by your side too. Not only will the whole World smile with you all but a New and Incorruptible World emerges as a consequence.

    With a smile, I recall how Lee Kuan Yew mandated his citizens to be ‘THE RUGGED SOCETY’ OR ‘TO BE CLEAN’ OR ‘TO SMILE’ etc. Believe it or not. Along Oxford Street, London, I asked my Singaporean friend why he threw all sorts of rubbish along the street. He replied ‘At last, I have FREEDOM.’ There hangs the tale Tun !

    Malaysian Boleh Tun as always ! Keep SMILING BROADLY TUN, TUN DR SITI HASMAH, DSAI AND THE TEAM. We all smile with you. No problem

    Tun

    For many years I have been commenting in these Columns about the Failed Public Policies of Lee Kuan Yew, an unusual person much concerned with Security coupled with the gathering of information on others which is known as spying.

    It is alleged that a wide area around any event attended by him would be searched thoroughly for bombs like up a lamp-post or up a tree for a radius of at least 100 metres depending on the location. His fear for his safety was real. And some Singaporean rumours alleged that he actually lived in the Istana and not at his humble Colonial style bungalow at Oxley Road.

    Quote Franklin D Roosevelt, ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’

    His penchant for spying on others made the following categories of persons working for him and the Government of Singapore eg. journalists, tycoons, bankers, prominent Malays, Malaysian Civil Servants, swallows, ducks, academicians, etc who were rewarded if they played a significant role in his interest.

    Malaysian and Hong Kong tycoons have been regularly rewarded financially thus with values of the rewards well above the market norm.

    At least two ordinary Malaysian merchant bankers ‘sold’ inside information on the impending bonus issue by Sime Darby in 1979. Both became mighty rich from zero base and became share-brokers. One of them became a convicted felon arising from a huge public cheating scandal in 1999. The other one got away scot-free.

    At the material time, I was offered the same facility to furnish information by a Singaporean lady share-broker who has since sold out to Maybank for a gigantic price I told her bluntly that I was not into this sort of thing by playing out my peers trust behind their backs. That was in 1979. She told me that financing was unlimited and know one would know ! I said ‘No thanks !’

    The use of money by Lee Kuan Yew to further the gains of whatever for Singapore is well-recorded.

    Of course, the most famous was the Thaksin Purchase of 2006 which turned Free Thailand into two halves with deaths and injuries to innocent Thai men, women and children. For the very first time. 2 coups d’états followed.

    For the prescient observer, how many Malaysians noticed that at least 3 Singaporean women journalists were each placed in the Bloomberg, CNBC and CNN respectively. It was the CNN which labelled the cendol as of Singapore origin.

    And during the Currency Crisis of 1997-2000, a Singaporean lady academician at the University of Chicago and a her counterpart, a lady journalist in Jakarta were reporting the most adverse comments on Malaysia’s correct Policy of Foreign Exchange Controls in 2000.

    And as for Malaysia, the authorities always minded our own business but bent over to please when Singapore’s Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government ruled 2004-2018.

    With Lee Kuan Yew’s intense interest in spying on others, especially their sexual peccadilloes, it no small wonder that the age-old Malaysian dessert known as ‘cendol’ also was a Singaporean invention for the want of NOTHING !

    Hence, the re-kindling of ancient 20th Century Strategy and Tactics by the 3G of Singapore only arouse curiosity and wonderment by the cognoscenti of Causeway Politics. Maybe the lack of original Ideas and the absence of white rabbits in the proverbial hat forced the issue.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Whoever in the World wants to claim any Malaysian cuisine, please just ask the PMO and it shall be given because we have so many dishes to give away to the famished ! No need to be sneaky.

    The two Sovereign countries, Malaysia and Singapore have been ruled by leaders with a similar British Colonial educational background since these became independent.

    However, in the case of Malaya/Malaysia since Merdeka, there have been 3 distinguished predecessors of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s 22 year Administration eg. the Tunku – the Father of Malaya. The Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn – a who tolerated no wrong doing.

    And Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was able to put in the essential infra-structures and created the stable Malay Middle Income Group together with the Non-Malay Middle Income Group to use the infra-structures meaningfully and to promote the stable ballast for the future. His successors thought otherwise and enjoyed themselves like taxi-drivers !

    Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad could develop his brain and thoughts as he soldiered on in the National Interest – a whole Life long.

    Comparatively, Lee Kuan Yew after attaining a Double First in Law at Cambridge, left his thinking cap behind when he exited the portals of Cambridge. And his brain did not further develop from that point onwards ! Hence apart from his worst 2 Child Family Policy of 1972-1984 which Hitler did not dare to attempt, Lee Kuan Yew had a further 46 Failed Public Policies on his record.

    In time, historians will arbitrate the pros and cons of Lee Kuan Yew’s performance as a Leader of Singapore. His brilliance or his failures.

    And with the Jury still out, today his inheritors are at their hot-air best war path again picking on their old nemesis Malaysia which Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was Singapore’s Puppet from 2004-2018 !

    Previously, Singapore’s obsession with Malaysia’s wealth was a dangerous distraction in terms of time and money. And at the material time, Singapore was up to her gills with the huge largesse from the spoils of easy money from the Black Under Counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 and with Uncle Sam’s support and blessings too. The BRICS took over this lush turf from Singapore. 2%-3% of the GDP just disappeared in the 1990s.

    From 2002 -2018, Singapore could not breach 3% of the GDP concomitant with the failures of Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives to save Singapore and his inheritors eg. the ill-conceived Temasek, the 2 casinos, the FT imports and the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP.

    In other words, Singapore HAD NO GROWTH FOR 16 YEARS, 2002-2018 INCLUSIVE OF INFLATION’!

    With this factual background, Lee Kuan Yew’s inheritors now take a hard line towards Malaysia’s diplomatic approach on a few metres of murky sea water and what rightfully belongs as regards Sovereignty and National Interest. From 2004-2018 9 May, there was not a squeak of complain from Singapore towards her Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which gifted her with so much . This rapacious gifts made no difference to the wherewithal of Singapore whatsoever. What a waste of time and money by betting on a one-legged horse !

    These sneaky acts only made Singapore that much smaller !

    We Malaysians must know our own strength and resilience.

    And we must also know that the Singapore of the 21st Century may have lost nearly all the BLACK MONEY MADE DURING THE COLD WAR !

    And with a turbulent World which has no mercy on anyone, a tiny place like Singapore WITH NOTHING BUT A FEW INHERITORS OF LEE KUAN YEW, is very much exposed to the big games the big boys of the World play.

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS, TUN !

    In the case of the US-China Trade War, the weapon of choice is Tariffs coupled with petroleum.

    In the case of Singapore, the inheritors of Lee Kuan Yew chose hot air or BLUFFOLOGY AS THE WEAPON OF CHOICE IN A WORLD IN WHICH ALL KNOW WHERE SINGAPORE STANDS. It was not so in the 20th Century when Lee Kuan Yew over-armed himself with all kinds of weapons.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! The difference between Men and Boys is the quality of their toys !

    Recent events emanating from Singapore in recent days are of a curious nature and origin.

    Their Ministers came out one after another beating the war-drums on a mobile sea border of their creation in recent times.

    The more I review their comments and the headlines like,’ Policy to de-stabilize Malaysia.’ or the words from a tousled head Minister with a half-past six demeanour ‘ Singapore extends Port limits. Territorial waters will be defended.’ the more I ask,’ What do all these official comments add up to ?’ All the fire and fury

    If these comments are serious, then these add up to something which has seriously affected the body politic of the Republic of Singapore. Here are the following conjectures relating to this :-

    1. THE FEAR OF LOSING POWER LIKE WHAT THEIR PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT DID ON 9 MAY 2018. There was mention that the Singaporean citizens be prepared for the long haul. Quote Franklin D Roosevelt.’ The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’ This is the most likely reason for this sudden outburst by the elites in unison.

    2. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DESTABILZE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA THESE DAYS GIVEN THE FACT THAT THANKS TO OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD 22 YEAR ADMINISTRATION 1981-2003, 6 MILLION MIDDLE INCOME MALAY FAMILIES WERE CREATED FROM ZERO BASE. This Group with the NON_MALAY Group of another 6 million families form the stable ballast which stabilises Malaysia. And with the New and Incorruptible Government, Malaysia is now united, proud and solid as steel.

    3. THE FACT THAT THE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT PERMITTED THE SINGAPOREANS TO RAPE MALAYSIA BETWEEN 2004 -2018 FREELY, YET SINGAPORE COULD NOT BREACH THE GDP OF 3% – for 16 years ! This is a serious observation of an ant sucking on an elephant and did not benefit at all – A serious economic structural defect in Singapore’s economy which arose from the tragic loss of the 2%-3% GDP belonging to the Black Under Counter Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    4. The sum of the different negative parts becomes a HUGE DILEMMA !

    We must revert to LOGIC AND FACTS to understand the curious behaviour of the Singapore Government Leadership today ! For them ancient 20th Century precepts, sayings and quotations still hold.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Keep smiling broadly ! We are Malaysians ! No problem.

  8. mubarakchan Dec 8,2018 12:28 AM

    Tun

    The recent spike in the Official comments from the Republic of Singapore is not surprising given the fact that their mind-set is still mired in the ancient 20th Century thoughts and sayings of their Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.

    Their present Dilemma is the result of being straight jacketed mentally for over two generations – 25 years of exuberance due to the huge inflow of Black Cash from the Black Trades during the Cold War 1948-1989 which was followed subsequently by another 25 years of Outflow of the huge cash Reserves emanating from both the Government and the Public Funds after being attacked with flatteries by the gnomes of Zurich.

    The Angst of the Leadership must have a root cause for Ministers to rush into print expressing lightning and thunder at very minor things.

    On the one hand, I am so happy and relaxed every day with the full knowledge that the New and Incorruptible Government as led by you Tun and DSAI and the Team by your side will fulfil the NORMS of Good Governance. On the other hand, a further realization of the fact that overnight since 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia is now one of the four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan Switzerland and Malaysia.

    With the additional knowledge that Malaysia is now trekking rapidly upwards to rub shoulders with the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    I surmise that Singapore’s ancient Strategy of being Obsessed with Malaysia has something to do with an early GE or an economy in dire straits due to their own mismanagement and the UTTER LACK OF IDEAS.

    Whatever it is, our beloved Malaysia is as innocent as a new-born babe with no intentions to harm anyone ! But only to exert our Sovereignty and National Interest.

    Maybe also Singapore lost control of the Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government together with Lee Kuan Yew’s Legacy the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP for his inheritors which now has a back-lash effect on their minds that they put all the money on a one-legged horse !

    As it is obvious to all, the manifold mistakes made by the Singaporean elites in not telling the BOSS the true facts concerning their thinking brought present day Singapore insurmountable problems in a World where every one looks after themselves in their Sovereignty and National Interest.

    For a tiny place, Singapore does not make a mark really even though they tell others they hit above their weight.

    NOW WE KNOW HOW !

    LEE KUAN YEW TRADED IN THE BLACK TRADES OF ARMS, SMUGGLING, MONEY LAUNDERING, VIETNAM WAR LOGISTICS, FREE VIETNAM WAR DEBRIS, TOADYING UP TO DICTATORS, SANCTIONS BREAKING OF CHINA, NORTH KOREA, MYANMARE ETC. US R&R, US SHIPS BUNKERING, US BASE, US AID ETC. With an honest Government, Singapore was pushed by the huge largesse from the 3rd World to the 1st ! It was Uncle Sam’s Miracle. Vide Diaward Industries, Chartered Industries Singapore.

    This huge largess was grabbed by the BRICS after the end of the Cold War 1948-1989, 2%-3% of the GDP. An irreplaceable loss for forever.

    THIS IS THE NUB OF THE WEAKNESS OF SINGAPORE’S CORE STRENGTH TODAY. Any other endeavour is not possible BUT ONLY POSSIBLE WITH THE BIG BOYS.

    With the latest spikes from Singapore, THIS ABSURD POLICY WILL ONLY MAKE SINGAPORE THAT MUCH SMALLER as already proven.

    IT IS THE NEW IDEAS WHICH WILL GIVE SINGAPORE THE FLIP TO GAIN MOMENTUM FORWARD NOT BACKWARD. And time is of the essence.

    This is the World of nanoseconds. Not splitting hairs on cendol or a few metres of murky salt water. Sheer waste of time and money.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our beloved Malaysia may have to wait until our other twin catches up with us after sorting out their 20th Century thoughts. No problem.

    A significant headline appeared this morning thus :-

    ‘ Heroes Welcome for Malaysia’s Bowling Champions.’

    All our outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen should be well-rewarded.

    During our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak’s time, he was President of the Olympic Council of Malaysia and was hands-on in all the sporting events. I was privileged to deliver tasks allotted by him. Most sporting events were at the top then including football. At that time, the organisers were keen, loyal and had nothing on their minds but to further the betterment of sports. No one ever thought about money.

    Our World famous Dato Nicole David would have at least 4-5 Olympic Gold Medals in her collection if the Olympic Council of Malaysia after Tun Abdul Razak’s Administration did not sit on their jobs and look pretty at important Olympic functions. And also they confirmed to be inveterate fellow travellers spending the funds belonging to the Rakyat.

    If the members of the Olympic Council of Malaysia were competent and efficient, squash would have been in the Olympic programme decades ago and not the Moguls ! Malaysia would have got at least 4-5 Golds due to her and Dato Nicole David.

    It is time for the YB in charge of Sports to organise the power structure of the governing bodies of Sports beginning with the OLYMPIC COUNCIL OF MALAYSIA WHICH IS FULL OF DEAD-WOOD FOR DECADES.

    Let have young sport activists full of energy, ideas and the willingness to help under the mid-day Sun. This will in time create more outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen to uphold our good name of Malaysia. As it is now, only individual efforts here and there.
    f
    The YB Minister should be the President of the Olympic Council to ensure
    the whole Sports Program is properly administered. This appointment is unlike that of the IIU which is a much lesser entity.

    IT IS TIME TO CLEAN OUT THE AUGEAN STABLES OF THE JURASSIC OLYMPIC COUNCIL OF MALAYSIA IN THE NAME OF MERITOCRACY AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ss always ! Soon we are on our Way to more greatness and glory in Sports

    Ever since I made my very first comments on politics on both sides of the Causeway in ‘Future Fast Forward’ in 2010 or thereabouts, some knowledgeable Singaporeans have told me that my comments have been monitored by the Singapore authorities.

    I comment only on my interpretation of the facts on the Public Policies as implemented by the Singapore Government mainly in relation on what affected Malaysia.

    I do not even know how to spin if required to do so.

    I have always been a friend of Singaporeans from young.

    In 1948, my sister and an aunt took me for a ride in a crowded bus along South Bridge Road. A Chinese schoolboy in a white epaulette uniform stood up and gave his seat to my aunt. This act struck me and I remembered it my whole life-long about Singaporeans. And throughout the 1960s and beyond I had many Singaporean friends, billionaires and taxi-drivers.

    It is the minority which I found insufferable and bombastic like Lee Kuan Yew.

    Hence, I went out of my way to find out what made him ticked. The fact was he did not tick ! He was an ordinary person unlike his wife who was really brilliant with a wonderful mind.

    His use of the institutions of the State as weapons and to gather information were quite unnecessary. I doubt if he used any of this information at all to cajole people.

    But the fear by the citizens at the mention of his name was real. Apparently, Income Tax was one of the weapons used. Fear was enough to quell any dissent in a tiny place which was Singapore.

    The latest Report on Singapore is that it is excellent to do business there but not a pleasant place to live.

    I have always said his biggest mistake was his obsession with Malaysia. His legacy on this leaves a trail even to this very day.

    My sincere advice to the elites is forget about Lee Kuan Yew’s quotes and get on with the chores of daily living and planning on your own. Every dog has his day !

    Malaysia as an obsession again is a dangerous distraction for Singapore in terms of time and money. How much of the Cold War largesse is now left ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! If you can do it and win with the trend n brilliance and courage, WHY NOT THE SINGAPOREAN ELITES IF THEY LEAVE THE THOUGHTS AND SAYINGS OF LEE KUAN YEW BEHIND IN THE 20TH CENTURY ?

  11. mubarakchan Dec 6,2018 4:35 PM

    Tun

    It seems to me that the elites of Singapore are once again embarked on their ancient 20th Century trail of hot air diplomacy like their latest, ‘ Malaysia uses Singapore as Bogeyman.’

    Is this angst the result of their loss of their puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the signed Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP ? However that’s their business and problem.

    But Singapore’s Dilemma today is of their own making arising from their own self-inflicted mistakes which Malaysia have never been capable of thus :-

    1. If Lee Kuan Yew had not been obsessed to do down Malaysia but had taken a NORMAL approach, Singapore would have gained much more, probably no Senai Airport, Tanjong Pelepas etc but a wide open highway direct to Changi and the Port of Singapore. His obsession was a dangerous distraction in terms of time and money.

    2. Singapore’s elites forgot about Lee Kuan Yew’s valuable goodwill and credits with the World’s super powers for 25 years ! A huge loss of money here !

    3. The ill-conceived Temasek using precious Government savings and Public funds to invest speculatively in badly managed companies on Wall Street, the City etc can only bring huge losses. Flattery by the gnomes of Zurich knew no bounds ! There goes the lush profits from the Cold War !

    4. Singapore missed being a Super Power in GOLD by not investing in GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce up to 4,000 tons. The US has 7,000 tons. Germany 4,000 tons. Italy 3,000 tons. Russia and China 2,000 tons and India 1,000 tons with more unofficially. A huge new GOLD industry would have been created. Malaysia would have been caught between a rock and hard place.

    But Man proposes. God disposes. Malaysia is now one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    THE DILEMMA OF SINGAPORE TODAY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MALAYSIA. ALL HER PROBLEMS ARE FROM HER OWN MISTAKES AS MENTIONED ABOVE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our beloved Malaysia has never harmed anyone but it has always been the other way round.

  12. mubarakchan Dec 5,2018 8:27 PM

    Tun,

    With your permission and your concept that Ideas make Money and not Cash is King which turns even the most powerful to be a thief, I like to express a few comments on the dire lack of ideas from Singapore’s elites these days of the 21st Century.

    It is pathetic to note that even at this day and Age, the independent and sovereign Republic of Singapore still resort to ancient 20th Century methods of cajoling their desires on our beloved Malaysia which has a population of 32 Million and its sovereign territory stretches for 1,200 miles from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea. The most important choke point of the World.

    Singapore’s choke point is only 1 mile 1,000 miles from the sea borders of Malaysia. Fellows get choked by Malaysia 1,000 miles before Singapore first.

    Singapore’s population of 900,000 Chinese males of 21 to 50 will in time dribble down to 90,000 and become a Province of the Republic of India.

    I have a soft spot for India and her inhabitants. I was a boy refugee there and gambolled amongst them who were friendly, hospitable and kind. This I will always be grateful and never forget.

    I always recommended my friends to visit India the most democratic in the World and she has the most advanced elite education system with her educational Silicon Valley sited at the foothills of the high Himalayas with rich flora and fauna, Dehra Dun and Mussoorie. Seeing is believing Tun I spoke Hindi, Urdu and Anglo Indian English as well. No problem

    I am still a Malaysian Chinaman. Hence I do not see why we have a politicised language conundrum in our beloved Malaysia whilst India embraced all the dialects, over 350 of them !

    Malaysia is now the 4th most important country of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia as from 9 May 2018

    That is our beloved Way forward as we rapidly trek upwards as led by you Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side to the likes of the Greats Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    Japan is a place that if anyone had done wrong, they honourably commit hara kiri even by apologies these days. What can be more NOBLE than this ? IN MALAYSIA THEY LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO COURT WITHOUT REMORSE !

    As for Singapore, now empty of white rabbits in the proverbial hat, maybe a few good ideas from those folks who live in the hot and humid Ulus could broaden their thinking horizon because the Singaporeans seem to have a mind-set stuck in the ancient 20th Century despite all the beautiful pix churned out by their World class media.

    I have observed that the e-biz World seemed to have passed them in the mad rush to capture market share of huge worthwhile countries of the World the US, China and India where huge population masses reside.

    The Dilemma in Singapore today is the lack of ideas to generate REVENUE for the Singapore Government with the sudden disappearance of her trades in arms trading and many other black trades during the Cold War 1948-1989 with Uncle Sam’s support and closed eyes.

    Thanks to the US needs and Lee Kuan Yew excellent rapport with the US Democrats. He ran an honest Government for a tiny population of less than 2 Million. The huge wealth so accrued from 1948 to 1989 pushed Singapore into the First World – it was Uncle Sam’s Miracle not Lee Kuan Yew’s.

    The Malaysians were misled to the glittering buildings and other exotic impressions that these are Lee Kuan Yew’s Miracle. Such things do not make money for the Government.

    Besides, after the collapse of the Black Trades due to the encroachment by the BRICS after 1989, Lee Kuan Yew created 4 Initiatives to save Singapore and his legacy for his inheritors – the ill-conceived Temasek, the 2 casinos, the FT imports, and the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP – all failed.

    Singapore now has NOTHING TO GIVE A FUTURE AND REVENUE FOR THE GOVERNMENT ! Coupled with the fact that it was alleged Lee Kuan Yew tried to turn Jurong to be like Graubünden, Ang Mo Kio like Bernese Oberland etc. He stopped after he discovered that the whole of Singapore at low tide could be fitted into Lake Geneva, Switzerland ! He had a lot of respect for the Swiss !

    How ?

    I suggest the Seletar Airport matter could be resolved easily by either building it elsewhere like using the gift from Malaysia the KTM lands or fill up the Johor Straits so that it becomes a monsoon drain with just a link chain fence along it. Billions of Singapore Dollars will be so created from this idea without being hampered with the impractical ideas of Cash is King !

    Like this at some future date if Singapore confederates with United Kingdom or Scotland or become the 53rd State of the United States or a Province of the Republic of India, we Malaysians on our side of this fence can hail our British, or American or Indian friends – Selamat Pagi.

    It is just as simple as this, Tun.

    The idea for Singapore to fill in the Johor Straits to create enough room for the planes to take-off from Seletar. I have seen warplanes coming out of a Swiss mountain like in a James Bond film. If Hollywood could do it, why not HIT ABOVE ITS WEIGHT SINGAPORE ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ? We Malaysians believe in Tun’s Concept of Ideas create Money not Cash is King ! And Tun with DSAI and the Team by his side will do precisely this for the Rakyat. No problem.

    Tun

    Another fine morning with the Sun smiling broadly accompanied by a clear blue sky and cumulus clouds all round. It was good to see you smiling broadly all the time and all over the place. A sight like this brings happiness and relaxation to the Rakyat who were once full of fore-boding before 9 May 2018.

    It was very good to see our fine and distinguished Tun Dr Siti Hasmah given the highest respect by President Putin of Russia and Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, an Oxonian, by holding her hand as a mark of respect. This is what our beloved Malaysia should be. We should be given due respect by the G20 if not for the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government when lesser souls took our rightful place.

    Kudos to our Minister of Transport, YB Loke, a competent and a person of the highest integrity for stating that our beloved Malaysia has Sovereignty and National Interest over our own Air Space above the State of Johor. It is high time that all Malaysians realise our Sovereignty and National Interest unlike the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government between 2004-2018.

    As soon as Tun retired in October 2003, a big convicted felon who robbed the public of over RM 1 Billion was fined only RM 3 Million with no jail sentence. The big criminal laughed all the way to his RM 1 Billion Vancouver Tower after transferring this RM 1 Billion out of the country with the FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES !

    And as though our beloved Malaysia was owned by the Leadership, the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government rushed to The Hague International Court of Justice to ascertain whether Pulau Batu Putih belonged to Singapore after over 100 years of inaction.

    Of course, our beloved Malaysia lost because it was a sandiwara just for two or it takes two to tango. Sovereignty and National Interest were forgotten due to jet lag.

    The arrogant Singaporeans trumpeted their cleverness by publishing a
    book to denigrate the stupidity of the Malaysians.

    Factually, there are many more clever Malaysians than Singaporeans as the record shows.

    Hence, Singapore’s Dilemma of no growth for 16 years with the collapse of Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives to save Singapore and leave behind an enduring legacy for his inheritors eg. the ill-conceived Temasek, FT imports, 2 casinos and the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP – all failed.

    Not only that, the famished Singaporeans rushed in to grab the Malaysian low hanging fruits in the wide opened doors of the Khazanah by running along the free Avenue right past the 4th Floor Boys showing
    the way by waving the magic wand,

    The finale was a hard core PAP (Singapore) cadre became the appointed Chief Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Sime Darby Apache Contract on his lap to ease his sufferings in the hot and humid Ulus. Lee Kuan Yew had his biggest laugh then. Where was our beloved Sovereignty and National Interest ? But who laughs last laughs the loudest !

    Malaysia is now one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia after 9 May 2018 !

    Further, a NOBODY was allotted 1,000,000 barrels of oil by Saddam Hussein according to a UN Report. Where was our beloved Sovereignty and National Interest ?

    Look at the fight over Sovereignty and National Interest in current events eg Brexit, South China Sea, Trump, etc.

    And much more CORRUPTIONS which could form the contents of a thick book !

    How many Malaysians are aware that Singapore used to control the Malaysian Air Space right up to Penang and beyond until 1974 ?

    Some wise guys in the NOC chaired by the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak brought this matter up in 1970. Hence the 1974 Arrangement mentioned by Singapore recently.

    And the Secretary to the NOC became a big shot in later years. He forgot, ugh ?

    The Air Space above the State of Johor belongs to Malaysia. Sovereignty and National Interest must be legally and rightfully exercised until some proper arrangement is in place.

    IF SINGAPORE HAS NO AIR SPACE FOR THEIR AIRPORT, THEN LET THEM BUILD ANOTHER ONE ELSEWHERE. IT IS THEIR PROBLEM NO MALAYSIA’S.

    Let us follow strictly the International Laws and not the Rule and Regulations of an Agency !

    We do exactly what Singapore did to us in the past and the present – follow the Laws plus the nitty-gritty or Devil in the details which Lee Kuan Yew was so fond of.

    Kudos again to the Minister of Transport YB Loke, competent and walk the talk unlike the other fellow when asked why MH17 flew over war-torn Ukraine.’ He replied, ‘No one asked us not to fly over Ukraine.’. Over 180 lives were lost due to the lack of commonsense and LEADERSHIP.

    Malaysia Boleh as always.

    OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND OUR NATIONAL INTEREST ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE TUN ! Otherwise we are not fit to be called a country known as MALAYSIA being called by nobodies as stupid, bullied, pushed around and raped in broad daylight as permitted by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004- 2018. An incident worst than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome !

    This morning the Nikkei PMI Index for Malaysia indicates a contraction for November which is the lowest for 6 months.

    We are now looking at the neglect by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government of doing nothing but playing about frivolously with the well-being of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat from 2004 to 2018 – a period which these purported leaders or rulers who had no clue on how to administer and plan for the future of a country.

    There were no initiatives to create productive projects to create meaningful jobs for the Rakyat.

    How could they when these purported leaders or rulers spent time enjoying themselves whilst raping our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat of their wealth ?

    Today, we look at the dire results of those who were responsible for planning for the future wherewithal of Malaysia. They neglected their responsibilities and duties from 2004 to 2018. But only knew how to pay astronomical salaries to sub-standard people. They thought being a Prime Minister or in the Government was a cinch.

    Just let others do the hard work whilst they spent time enjoying themselves here and there or flitting overseas in a jiffy.

    This 0.001 % of the population who controlled the 99.999% of the population did not realise at all the magnanimity of the job which they held.

    THE PRECIOUS LIFE OF A NATION BUILT UP BY THEIR PRREDECESSORS.

    If these fellows were incompetent, that was one story. But these fellows were not only incompetent but practised the ways of those who frequent the fringes of Society. This was another story.

    A story which has transpired to be shameful without comparison. We the 99.999% of the population all suffered for this, rich or poor. This now shows in the Nikkei PMI Index for Malaysia. No more. No less.

    Tales of mismanagement and malfeasance by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government emerged very soon after 2003.

    The first was a convicted felon who was the mastermind of a share-broking theft of over RM 1 Billion, was only fined RM 3 Million WITHOUT JAIL ! He laughed all the way to Vancouver to his Tower.

    Then the little stories on the NS Programme about the Corruption in the construction of the camps, the catering, the uniform and the transport.

    Followed by the invasion by the hard-core PAPs (Singapore) running along the Avenue past the 4th Floor Boys who held the magic wand, directly into the wide-open doors of the Khazanah looking for low hanging Malaysian fruits which they found plenty.

    This wanton act was followed by the appointment of a hard-core PAP (Singapore) cadre as the CHIEF EDITOR OF THE UMNO OWNED NEW STRAITS TIMES TO TEACH US MALAYSIANS HOW TO READ AND WRITE IN ENGLISH !

    To keep this fellow happy, a lush Sime Darby Apache Contract kept him happy in the hot and humid Ulus.

    Some of these Singaporeans took up abode in Putrajaya to be nearer to the scene of action in their favour.

    Not only that, stories of how a syndicate blessed by the very top could corner all the palm oil sludge from the GLCs estates for free daily began to emerge from the grape-vine. And more happenings.

    This crazy episode in Malaysian History eased seamlessly to the fat boy’s amateurish move to make big bucks out of our beloved Malaysia’s Government coffers, with us the Rakyat watching and hearing haplessly.

    It’s a small small World, Tun !

    As a person who has been a close observer of the political scene on both sides of the Causeway since 1954, I was very worried. Such things should not happen inside ANY GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD !

    In 2011, I decided to meet our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad face to face a third time since 1972 !

    For the curious, I have been in correspondence with Tun at least once a year on important issues of the day since 1981. He always found time to reply to my letters which I now have as a series. He did not reply only once when I mentioned a sensitive and seditious subject.

    From his attitude to an ordinary person like me, I realise Tun is caring and compassion about the welfare of the Rakyat.

    And to confirm, I personally bumped into Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah twice when he was the Prime Minister, at about 8.30 p.m. on two occasions, Ampang Park Complex and Sogo with only one bodyguard in attendance.

    What were they doing there ? Enjoying themselves by taking in the fresh air (makan angin) ?

    NO ! Tun was there in those places to see for himself on the spot about the welfare of the Rakyat and the activity of the market place. He had no problem with the heat and the humidity ! Unlike those fellows who spent time at the Dorchester Hotel London or the Plaza Hotel New York enjoying themselves and doing nothing for the Rakyat !

    And why did I correspond with him ? The reason was his closest aides who were also my closest friends kept me away from the Tun with one excuse or another so that they keep their precious relationships with the Tun to themselves. That’s OK with me.

    Hence, I met the Tun officially 3 times – Hari Raya 1972 and every year until he became PM in 1981: 1984. I was the first and only to avoid a gigantic scandal. 2011. I met him again face to face to assess his reaction to the Governmental Malfeasance since 2004. At that time, I was already briefed that Tun would NEVER RETURN TO POLITICS BECAUSE TUN DR SITI HASMAH AND THE FAMILY DID NOT WANT HIM TO BE INVOLVED AGAIN !.

    In 2011, the first question Tun asked me as I sat down in front of his huge desk was ‘ Where are you from ?’ Of course, he knew about me otherwise I would not be able to see him. The second question was ‘ Have you been to Alor Star’. I told him I have never been there and someone informed me in the 1960s that it was full of green flies. He gave me a cynical smile which I pretended not to see. He could conceal his feelings about the current events at the material time. I left without any feeling as well. But Tun asked me to write about my view of things. Hence, after careful thought I appeared at his distinguished Blog in 2013.

    For the thinking curious, I sincerely hope you now understand WHY I ALWAYS MENTIONED TUN IS BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS arising from my experiences above. When I met Tun in 2011, he appeared to have retired due to the desire of his family.

    BUT THE CALL OF THE RAKYAT TO SAVE OUR HAPLESS BELOVED MALAYSIA UNDER ATTACK BY DARK FORCES WAS TOO GREAT TO IGNORE BY TUN. And against all the POWER and MONEY against him with DSAI and the Team by his side, VICTORY WAS THEIRS BUT THE TASK AT HAND TO RESTORE BACK TO NORMALITY IS HUGE GIVEN THE GIGANTIC RAPE AND NEGELCT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA 2004-2018 !

    Hence, I will always say Tun is BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. Malaysia will be up and running soon under your Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    Tun

    Congratulations on the successful launch of the PPBM Sarawak branch. It is good to see you smiling all the time. This will bring out all the good hormones from the brain for your good health and well-being.

    The end of each year brings thoughts and memories to the forefront as civilised beings like us still remember those events which marked significant steps in our life-long quest for achievements big or small.

    And the biggest significant event of all is the rapine attitude of the whole Establishment of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government between 2004-2018 which left no stone unturned in Corruption and Nepotism by its elitist leaders en mass. How could a country like our beloved Malaysia produced such irresponsible and uncaring leaders ?

    Not only one, but the whole lot using the apparatus of the State to steal the riches belonging to the Rakyat as represented by the Government of the day ! And the methods to steal were crude like that of a common thief. How could it be that ennobled personalities all with many titles and have sworn before our Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans over and over again for decades indulged in such wanton rape of the Rakyat’s wealth held in safe-keeping by the Government on their behalf ?

    And our beloved Malaysia is not a poor country which could not pay for their keep. How could this wanton rape of our beloved Malaysia have taken place in our own country by the whole elitist Establishment from top to bottom ?

    Even Hitler did not rape his Deutschland but only the countries he conquered !

    How could leaders who are born and bred in one’s own country do such a horrible rape of their own homeland en mass and must be recorded as one of the most horrible crimes in Humankind History ?

    The Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister and 2 Ministers have been indicted for monetary crimes together with a whole host of ennobled high ranking officials and the promise of more indictments to come !

    And it is purported that big chunks of money in the Treasury just disappeared into thin air without trace and accountability.

    How could this be that a Government which was administered properly and honestly from 1957 to 2003 suddenly collapsed as though a gang of Mafiosi had taken over it ?

    Not only that our beloved Malaysia is now hobbled with mega projects which have no meaning and set up at great expense with no immediate purpose.

    How could a whole elitist Establishment go off at a tangent like this doing thoughtless projects with no purpose ?

    For these rapacious people, I hope they are aware that our money in the economy has run dry.

    How could this be when over 500 handbags, 400 watches, 12,000 pieces of jewellery and RM 113 Million in cash are stored in one single abode of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership ?

    And as anyone could guess, this is only the tiny tip of an iceberg of Corruption affecting the whole ruling elitist Establishment. And when charged, the Defendants denied any wrong doing.

    How could this be in our beloved Malaysia to be financially raped by her own elitist Establishment worst than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome ?

    With 3 generations of attrition of the Malay elitists, our beloved Malaysia is now only left with our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, one 80 year old superman and one 40 year old Christ’s ( College ) man ! And all the affected Malay elitist in between are happy to lie low with their tons of money !

    How could this be that MONEY MONEY MONEY IS SO VERY IMPORTANT IN THE WORLD OF THE LIVING IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ?

    How much can one spend in one’s Lifetime or spend in London or elsewhere ? After 2 weeks overseas, most Malaysians would miss their favourite foods and yearn to return home. Why deposit the billions and billions of US Dollars in Swiss private banks or New York or London ?

    Why should we benefit the economies of foreign countries ? And at the most we have only 100 years to live and there is a high risk of the money being squandered by the children !

    Tun, with all those facts in our minds, I recall the time which was 13 May 1969 when the Malays had only 2% of the general economy, the British 70% of the best of everything, the Chinese 25% of the 3rd rate with only a handful of tycoons.

    Then, after this momentous event, the great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak, YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Tun Ismail Mohd Ali, UMNO Youth and yourself ( except for the MCA whose leadership was in the dog house for its withdrawal in a pique from the Alliance at 2.30 pm 13 May 1969 and re-joined at 10 pm that tragic night ) came together as one and formulated the NEP which supported my 1972 Concept of capturing Sime Darby to put the Malays fast trek into Big Business and relieved the pressure on the existing and future Chinese business based on the NEP basic policy of creating a level playing field for all.

    One MCA leader a johnny-come-lately who got entangled with the authorities on both sides of the Causeway called me a ‘Malay bum-sucker’ for my 1872 Sime Darby Concept. After 7 years in corrupt politics he could remit S$ 100 Million via my friend to his girl friend’s Hong Kong account at HSBC ! If not for the NEP and Sime Darby, how could this MCA fellow made S$ 100 Million out of his politics in 7 years based on the Chinese ?

    The Establishment with the launch of the NEP before and after never thought of raping the country for themselves. There was no money in the Malay or Government coffers anywhere.

    Sime Darby was captured for ONLY RM 23 MILLION WHEN THE MALAYSIAN MONEY RAN OUT AND THROUGH THE GRACE OF THAT BRILLIANT LADY LAWYER IN SINGAPORE, TWO SINGAPORE BANKS SUPPORTED THE MALAY CAUSE. THIS WE MUST NEVER FORGET.

    BY NOVEMBER 1975, SIME DARBY WAS CAPTURED as promised to Tun Abdul Razak before his untimely demise.

    We must never forget that the Malays thought about money ONLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT THEN.

    To show what a valuable asset Sime Darby was/is, under Malaysian Management and with the same Management which did not leave after the FIRST BANKRUPTCY IN 1996 AT RM 1.2 BILLION, THE SAME MANAGEMENT WAS IN ATTENDANCE AT THE SECOND BANKRUPTCY IN 2010 AT RM 2.1 BILLION ! No one was charged. No one was jailed !

    With the Wealth created by our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his distinguished predecessors from zero base, we who are still around since the time when the Malays had only 2% of the Malaysian economy, just cannot believe that a whole elitist Establishment could collapse due to wine, women and song !

    Where is our Sovereignty and National Interest ? Like rushing off to the International Court at The Hague to give away something which was untouched for centuries ! It takes two to tango or to permit a nobody to take 1,000,000 barrels of oil from Saddam Hussein as reported by the UN.

    When the Leadership and elites think of wine, women and song, and not of our Sovereignty and National Interest like signing the TPPA/CPTPP that will be the end of our beloved Malaysia.

    We the Rakyat and our beloved Malaysia have only ONE MORE CHANCE TO MAKE GOOD UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP TUN WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE.

    AND WE MUST ALSO NEVER FORGET THAT WE HAVE ONLY ONE HOME WHICH IS OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ! This time, Man proposes. God disposes.

    Money can be found again. But when the elitists fall, it is impossible to pull them like white rabbits out of the proverbial hat. And the non-Malay elitists cannot progress and advance without the Malay elitists in place ! Without elitists, where is a country ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem under your brilliant and courageous Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side !

    As the momentous year 2018 is fast drawing to a close, it is good, very good that those responsible for the Leadership of the New and Incorruptible Government commented on the State of the well-being of our beloved Malaysia’s general economy in relation to the Rakyat. Headlines like, thus :

    ‘ PM : Economy is doing well because Malaysia is very stable.’

    ‘ PM : Najib and Badawi left us with a bloated Civil Service.’

    ‘ FM : There is an increase of 35% FDI during the 10 months of 2018’

    The above-mentioned headlines are the harbingers of more good tidings to come for the Rakyat under the New and Incorruptible Government.

    1. For 14 years, the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, 2004-2018 did nothing but to satisfy the wanton desires of the Leadership. Otherwise, our beloved Malaysia should be sitting at the G20 Conference now being held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    What we see today on TV is that because of the Corruption and Failure of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government during 2004-2018, our beloved Malaysia has been left out.

    A country with NOTHING sits on the front row next to President Putin who ignored the fellow because President Putin is aware that our beloved Malaysia is the real thing. Not a FAKE.

    And we are now one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. Thanks to the brilliance and courage of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, before and on 9 May 2018 !

    Malaysia is situated in the most strategic geo-political location in the World which stretches for 1,200 miles from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea with a stable Government and economy which practices Democracy successfully by peoples from 3 ancient civilizations and others and full of bountiful natural resources especially water. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Yet the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government during 2004-2018 brought our beloved Malaysia down to such a lowly stature that the Leadership began to think like Mickey Mouse and behaved like one too.

    IN FACT, MALAYSIA IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COUNTRY IN SOUTH EAST ASIA IF NOT THE WORLD WHICH THE COLONIALISTS RECOGNISED FROM THE 16TH CENTURY, THE PORTUGESE, DUTCH, BRITISH, JAPANESE, CHINESE.

    Now we the Rakyat, the Malaysians must stand united, proud and strong to tell the World, we are also one of the very best and must not behave like cowards or thieves stealing money belonging to public.

    In fact during this period 2004-2018 whilst the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was suppressing the Rakyat on the one hand, it was selling out to the foreigners on the other.

    The most notable was the 4th Floor Boys who opened the flood-gates of the Khazanah to the famished Singaporeans who came rushing in to pick at the low hanging fruits. Eventually a hard-core PAP cadre was appointed the Chief Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Sime Darby Apache contract to ease his sufferings in the hot and humid Ulus.

    Man proposes. God disposes. A rock fell on the head of the 4th Floor Boys think-tank and killed him on the spot ! But before this, 1,000,000 barrels of oil were extracted out of tight fisted Saddam Hussein by a Malaysian nobody as reported in the UN Report !

    After the collapse of the Badawi Regime, the most amateurish scam was concocted to siphon money out of the Government coffers by borrowing from banks. Believe it or not.

    Bank loans are limited by risks which these amateurs did not know.

    A signature from the PMO would have unleashed trillions for them if they were not amateurs in the theft of money.

    Tun, the ignorance of these last-minute amateurs in the theft of money was incompetent and inefficient which will put the whole lot into jail sooner or later.

    To top the whole rabid corruption, the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government signed the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP fully supported by Singaporean digits embedded as Senior Civil Servants in the Malaysian Civil Service.

    And to make this even MORE LAUGHABLE, A BEAUTIFUL SPY MISTRESS CIK BON 004 WHO LOVES GUCCI SPECS, WAS CREATED to spy on our OWN RAKYAT. She turned out to have sticky fingers with the Boss’s money and was probably hand-picked by the Boss’s spouse ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    And the person hand-picked and employed to brain-wash the Rakyat, has since returned to Israel ! Believe it or not !

    The whole of the Malaysian Government was up-side down during 2004-2018, Tun !

    It was a crazy environment when money was spent to turn the Perdana Residence into a night-club for Hollywood stars, Western hangers-on; to sponsor the Trengganu Regatta for the European upper-class ; and for Sime Darby to sponsor 9 years of New Zealand Ocean Racing to please its former New Zealander Finance Director in the most bigoted country in the World !

    At a time even now, we have to care for our disadvantaged, the old, the orphans, the single mothers etc. There are people who do not see, do not hear and do not think at the very top of the Leadership during 2004-2018 ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    2. Tun you are correct. Our beloved Malaysia has the most bloated Civil Service in the World apart from countries with Socialist/Communist Policies. Here Is a list from the ILO courtesy Wikipedia. The percentage of the Civil Service in relation to the total employment :-

    1. India – 55% (2014) 2, Singapore – 32% (2014).

    3. UK – 21.%% (2014) 4. Malaysia – 19% (2014)

    5. Switzerland 13.8% (2014)

    NB. If Malaysia includes the uniformed Services and the GLCs, the percentage would probably be near to India’s !

    I entered into a Najib Potemkin Office in the Wisma MARA, Kuala Lumpur by accident which was headed by a non-elected UMNO Supreme Council member. The office covers two floors of the large building complete with brand new office furniture and many employees which were doing NOTHING ! A sheer waste of Rakyat’s money.

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership lined not only their own pockets but used the Rakyat’s money to employ their own people as well by the thousands. This is a crazy way to bring down a previously well-Administered Government to its knees without any doubt. A figure of RM 1 Billion for recurrent salaries was mentioned recently by the FM !

    A cursory look at the Leaders of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government’s ability and qualification to manage MONEY showed there were NONE !

    Yes Tun ! With proper and normal Administration by the New and Incorruptible Government and DSAI by your side, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat are recovering rapidly by giving you time to pull more wonderful white rabbits out of the proverbial hat to benefit the Rakyat.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    It is good to see you smiling all the time and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah as well.. This will bring out all the good hormones from the brain to sustain your health and activity. What medicine is better than this !

    Soon it will be the end of the year 2018.

    It is not only a momentous year but an earth shattering year too with the victory of the good over the bad.

    What more can our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat want better than this ? A solid chance to trek upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan by Malaysia which is now one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    And your Government’s recent sterling accomplishment of selling off its first GLC, IHH which is irrelevant to the needs of an emerging and developing Nation like Malaysia.

    We have many poor Rakyat, the old, the orphans, the single mothers and the disadvantaged to look after right on our door step.

    Malaysia has no place to be involved in the domestic problems of other nations like IHH BORROWING billions of ringgits to invest in Turkey, India, China, Singapore to bail out PRIVATE TYCOONS or like FELDA bailing out the Eagle Group of Indonesia USING OUR GOVERNMENT’S MONEY. For free ? In Turkey, the tycoons, the Singh Brothers of India twice, in Singapore and India and Peter Sondak of Indonesia. To the Management of IHH, we Malaysians are NOT born yesterday or stupid.

    Yes Tun ! In 2019, a fruitful and successful year for the New and Incorruptible Government will materialise.

    To make this even more successful and fruitful, we the common people or Rakyat should stand together and be PATRIOTIC to push our beloved Malaysia towards the highest height achievable for a Nation.

    THIS IS OUR LAST AND ONLY CHANCE TO GET RID OF ALL THE NEGATIVE IDIOMS WHICH HAVE BEEN EMBEDDED IN OUR SYSTEM BY THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT DURING THEIR 14 YEAR RULE OVER US, 2004-2018.

    With a peaceful and harmonious support by the Rakyat, our brilliant and courageous Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will produce many more wonderful white rabbits out of the hat for the benefit of all Rakyat, the young and the old, the big and the small. the rich and the poor ! No problem.

    UNLIKE SINGAPORE WHO HAS NOW RUN OUT OF WHITE RABBITS TO PULL OUT OF THE HAT. AND SOON EVEN THE HUGE RESERVES BUILT UP FROM BLACK UNDER-COUNTER ARMS TRADE ETC DURING THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 WILL RUN DRY.

    Taking into cognizance of the fact that with the loss of the lush Black Under Counter Arms Trades to the BRICS since 1990, Singapore 2-3% GDP from this arms trades alone has disappeared forever.

    And between 2002-2018, Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% per annum because of this loss, 2-3% of the GDP which used to be the contribution from her black under counter arms trades etc.

    This is Singapore’s Dilemma today after the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s creations to save the survival of his Singapore and his legacy for his inheritors eg. the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP, 2 casinos, FT imports and the ill-conceived Temasek.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Many more white rabbits for you to pull out of the proverbial hat as we progress along. No problem.

    What a wonderful coincidence !

    As I was enjoying myself amongst the equable ambience of the Mitsui Outlet Mall, it transpired that Mitsui & Co. Ltd Tokyo has agreed to take-over the Khazanah’s shareholding in IHH, a company which I consider useless and uncontrollable because of its nebulous corporate structure. The sum of RM 8.26 Billion payable is good for the present needs of our Government and our beloved Malaysia.

    It makes a lot of sense that CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.

    We have many socially disadvantaged old and young, orphans and single mothers to look after.

    For the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government to spend precious BORROWED money overseas on foreign private hospitals when our beloved Malaysia is still an emerging country which has poverty right on our doorstep amongst all communities only underlines its thoughtlessness and uncaring attitude with eyes that do not see, ears that do not hear and brains that do not think at the highest level.

    Not only that, the IHH was involved in at least 2 gigantic bail-outs with borrowed money eg. in Turkey when the Turkish tycoons were bailing out and recently in India with a giant RM 2.4 Billion bail-out, all of which were handled by a foreign individual of no merit. This can only mean the build-up of huge recurrent purchases of generic drugs by IHH which are produced in huge quantities by my friend the richest Muslim in India and others. For this he was recently honoured by India.

    Our beloved Malaysia’s majority of diverse peoples are good people.

    And because our fellow citizens are good people, THOSE WHO HAD THE POWER SHOULD CARE FOR THE 99.99% who are hapless and without any POWER. But this was not to be given by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    For example, on my journey by car back from the Mitsui Outlet Mall, the whole highway was packed with cars all the way back to Kuala Lumpur and beyond.

    A thought struck my mind that the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government did nothing to build more highways to ease this congestion during their disinterested administration 2004-2018.

    What the BN Government did was to build an expensive rail network around KL instead of adding more highways and by-ways stretching outwards from KL in all directions.

    When money is the top consideration for everything, the Rakyat’s interest is all but forgotten ! Railways are good for certain localities and purposes which have limited functions unlike the motorcar.

    There have been so much fake information and statistics produced forcefully in support of mega-railway projects that we get the horrendous traffic jams along all our important highways today at rush hour and everyday. It also crossed my mind how forgiving and tolerant we Malaysians are to be cheated right and left by crooks who claimed and swore before the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans to protect and safeguard all our Rakyat’s interests.

    It is an excellent time to clean out the Augean Stables after our beloved Malaysia has been raped by crooks worse than the Rape of the Sabine Women of Rome.

    SELL ALL OUR USELESS FOR THE GOVERNMENT, GLCs ESPECIALLY THOSE CONNECTED WITH PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT.

    It does not make sense to the Rakyat when our Rakyat could not afford affordable homes on the one hand and on the other the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government poured billions of ringgits to build expensive home for those who can afford them.

    Kudos to the New and Incorruptible Government for doing the right thing by selling the useless IHH with its octopus reach in countries which have nothing to do with our beloved Malaysia.

    The less the New and Incorruptible Government is involved in MONEY MONEY MONEY the better. Otherwise, our beloved Malaysia and the Rakyat are held in BONDAGE BY SMOOTH TALKING CROOKS WHO HAVE NO NATIONAL INTEREST AT HEART AND THE WORD SOVEREIGNTY IS NOT IN THEIR VOCABULARY.

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS, TUN !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Every sen the New and Incorruptible Government retrieves back is as precious as GOLD.

    What is better than to take a day trip out to the Mitsui Outlet Mall near the KLIA to see for myself how well this Mall is doing.

    My grand-daughter was keen to go as well because of her fondness for Japanese food which I taught her from young.

    Japanese food is healthy and nutritious. Throughout the World, outside of Asia, Japanese food is affordable and has the same standard. And they serve rice which is my staple diet ! Whenever I go to a European or North American city, I always made sure I have easy access to a Japanese restaurant near my lodging place.

    My fondness for Japanese food was cultivated when I did business with the Japanese traders of Kasho of Yokohama and Ishihara Sanyo in which I was a Director. Having a life-long desire for Japanese foods paid dividends in my later Life. That was the best one could do for one’s healthcare !

    But it was not so much about the Sushi King restaurant I was interested in but on the Mitsui Outlaet Mall itself which was established more than 5 years ago.- An American style Mall with lots of parking space. Well-designed to utilise natural lighting as much as possible. All the well-known brands are there. An extremely well-sited location within 3 miles of the KLIA.

    As always a curious bystander, I noted a Middle Eastern couple, many Vietnamese and Indonesians but only one Caucasian couple. No mainland Chinese were evident. Many buses brought these tourists to the Mall. The Malaysians were families with schoolchildren being on their school holidays.

    The Mitsui Outlet Mall is one of the best I have visited in Malaysia.

    The location of the washrooms in any Mall in my assessment on any Mall like in any factory.

    I could distinguish a Malaysian Chinese designed Mall immediately by the lackadaisical way in which the facilities for the aged like toilets and other conveniences are usually non-existent or sited at some difficult to reach nook and corner as an after-thought. It is the mercenary mind at work.

    But with the Mitsui Outlet Mall all things are balanced and I got a comfortable feeling ambling along the vast pedestrian avenues lined by World class brands displayed in well-fitted shops with the whole environment softened by groups of green foliage and trees. I just sat around for many hours- relaxed and happy.

    I could envisage that soon, the Mitsui Outlet Mall should receive its rightful and expected quantum of tourists by an increase of at least 3 fold given the Government’s effort to attract tourists.

    If other countries have been doing this for years, our beloved Malaysia surely could do the same.

    From 2004-2018, funds for the Ministry of Tourism were squandered away by Ministers who spent time in the wrong places and at the wrong time.. But with the New and Incorruptible Government, every sen spent will bring its reward in attracting more tourists by the travel agents who are the key in this cash business, not the Government.

    It would be good that other facilities like a hotel with sporting facilities are placed next to the Mitsui Outlet Mall as an additional hub of activity.

    All in all, our tourism industry is still young as previous Ministers were for Tourism and not of Tourism. I have never known Ministers of Tourism of other countries travelled at all or as much as the Malaysian Ministers did.

    In Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew put his sister-in-law as the Head of the Tourism Board until she retired. He certainly did not tolerate any monkey business by a Minister of Tourism which post does not exist in Singapore.

    A Malaysian Minister of Tourism could promote London tourism using Government funds to present an exhibit of Malaysian orchids which won the Gold Medal for promoting London at the upper class Royal Chelsea Flower Show.

    A high official of the Malaysian Tourist Board was dismissed for sticky fingers.

    Sime Darby could promote Ocean Racing in New Zealand which is one of the most bigoted countries in the World, for 9 years.

    A Minister brought her spouse for a trip to the Antipodes where kangaroos and sheep outnumbered the inhabitants. And this sort of list goes on and on with the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which was exclusive to all but a few.

    Malaysia BOleh Tun as always ! The Japanese are good examples of good governance in all the things they do in commerce and industry. No monkey business.

    A happy day for all of us to see Prof. Jomo awarded a distinctive academic award.

    From the beginning until today, he was consistent in pointing out the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP could not be accepted by our beloved Malaysia – Unlike those highest ranking Civil Servants who spoke for Singapore openly in the media and was ennobled for doing so.

    He was the only voice with an open and professional mind amongst the Malaysian economists who was professional and took an objective view of the TPPA/CPTPP – a Lee Kuan Yew creation to smash down the tariff barriers of Malaysia by the stroke of the pen of the corrupt.

    Thanks to Prof Jomo who finally found his metier at the right time and the right place after so many years garnering knowledge here and there. It is good that our beloved Malaysia still has many personalities like him in support of your New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great with DSAI by your side.

    Kudos again to Prof Jomo who is one of the active participants like you Tun in assisting the upward trek of our beloved Malaysia towards the Greats being Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan, as ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD. The others are Britain, Switzerland and Japan.

    This morning and today is typical of our climate under the North East Monsoon. Dull and grey without a whiff of wind or a drop of rain. We all went about doing our business. However when I got up this morning a thought struck my mind. The word was ‘OPPORTUNITY.’

    I reflected on the many opportunities which came your Way Tun and you grasped each and every one of them with both hands, successfully.

    Then I thought about your successors who had an easier time gaining the top post in the land and yet they both fell to the temptations of the weakness of the flesh and the soft under belly.

    It is alleged one of them held a very minor Civil Service post not too long ago and the other was well-ensconced with a noble background. Both lost the golden opportunities which many Malaysians hankered for and never obtained.

    And a good example of lost opportunities maybe illustrated by the proposed demonstrations against the non-issue ICERD and 4 other unknown UN Treaties to come.

    The raving crowd will rally in a place surrounded by Malay owned skyscrapers, munching Malay owned and made KFCs and dressed in Malay owned and made T shirts etc. These are the times, Tun.

    But the BN leaders missed the OPPORTUNITY to demonstrate against the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP which would have dispossessed the Malays and made the Chinese and Indians middlemen controlled and financed by Singapore if the BN had won on 9 May 2018.

    Your brilliance and courage took advantage of the OPPORTUNITY to grasp the nettle and won. This turned our beloved Malaysia overnight on 9 May 2018 into one of four important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. And now with the New Incorruptible Government under your Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side, Malaysia is trekking fast upwards to be with the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. For you Tun you took all the OPPORTUNITIES in hand and turned them into astounding achievements !

    Then we have Lee Kuan Yew missing GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce. If Singapore had only invested in 4,000 tons of GOLD from the 1990s onwards to 2008, she would be rubbing shoulders with the United States with 7,000 tons, Germany with 4,000 tons, Italy 3,000 tons, France 3,000 tons, Russia 2,000 tons, China 2,000 tons and India 1,000 tons with an unknown amount in private hands.

    But Lee Kuan Yew’s weakness caused him to miss OPPORTUNITIES like by being obsessed to do down Malaysia, narcissism and flattered by the gnomes of Zurich. Instead he came up with 4 Initiatives eg. Temasek, 2 casinos, importation of FTs to boost GDP and the TPPA/CPTPP which all failed. Man proposes. God disposes.

    With a mountain of GOLD, Singapore would have new industries and businesses like refining, banks, bonds, exchanges, warehousing, jewellery production, security, etc. And the huge military really guards the GOLD whether it is in Singapore or not.

    Hence when your achievements in garnering ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES SUCCESSFULLY WHICH BECAME TO YOU AS COMPARED WITH THE OTHER PERSONALITIES WHO HAD THEIR OPPORTUNITIES SERVED TO THEM ON A PLATE ? What more have we all to say ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Opportuniities have four legs, we have only two. Do not chase after them because we can never catch up with them.

    My humble apologies for a typo error in my previous comment. It should be………..900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50………..

    Tun

    This morning I decided to say something different but aligned with Democracy of Nations in our World.

    This morning also confirms that the North East Monsoon is still with us.

    Minor snippets of news were of a localised nature, here and there. But we are conscious that the naysayers are plotting or waiting for something to happen which will not happen because there are no cogent reasons for anything to happen even with the non-issue ICERD.

    And what is an interesting subject which will catch the eye of the curious ? I am aware all these are carefully monitored by busybodies. Hence I stuck strictly to facts concerning who and who down South. Thus :-

    Our closest and dearest neighbour and geographic twin, the Republic of Singapore appears to have lost its mojo since the end of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    The BRICS literally grabbed her huge under-counter trades (2-3% of her GDP) which were highly profitable and beneficial for a tiny population of less than 2 million governed by a clean and honest Government. This largesse pushed her from the Third to the First World.

    This was the real Singapore/Lee Kuan Yew Miracle not those glittering buildings, gardens, first class education, hospitals, clean streets, Jurong factories, Temasek, GLCs etc. which actually do not make money and require money for upkeep to 1st World standards.

    As a result of Singapore’s inability to breach the 3% GDP for 15 years, 2002-2017, this means there was no growth due to the persistent and lingering inflation rate which is chronic in most economic systems and the loss of the under-counter trades to the BRICS.

    Tourism for Singapore is dependent on China. Exports could not replace those hidden revenues of the go-go years of the Cold War at 7% GDP 1948-1989. Those were halcyon days of easy money for the Government of Singapore.

    And now with super-powers playing the game of chess with Trade as the War Plan and petroleum the ultimate weapon of choice, all Nations big and small have their economy upset by uncertainty whether things are coming or going. How for Singapore with a population of Chinese males aged 21-50 ?

    Tun as we are friends with the good and the great of Singapore, it seems to me that a Concept for Singapore’s future is for the Republic to CONFEDERATE with the United Kingdom.

    The First Confederation of States in the World. The First Tele-parliament too.

    Singapore’s huge military of men and machines could now be reduced to sensible levels with the new joint defence force command and bring more stability to ASEAN.

    With our beloved Malaysia fast becoming the Asian Switzerland in the making, this Concept provides an ideal fit for Singapore’s successful survival and sustainability as an Independent State in Confederation with the United Kingdom. Scotland will not exit from the United Kingdom with this Concept.

    The FTs could be trimmed down. Social benefits for the Singaporeans from cradle to grave. And her honest and capable Government can fine tune its Good Governance to a T for the benefits of its citizens ! Then, where else but Singapore ?

    I strongly believe this Concept of the Confederation of Singapore and the United Kingdom will not only be the Best in the World but also for ASEAN and ASIA which will stand to benefit.

    This is in line with your thoughts on the CREATION OF MONEY WITHOUT MONEY, TUN and not Cash is King which makes a person becomes a THIEF TO GRAB MORE AND MORE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! A Confederation of Singapore and the United Kingdom is good for all of us ASEAN, ASIA and the World.

    Malaysian politics as practised under our Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias and our loyalty and devotion towards our beloved Constitution, the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans have brought forth all kinds of frivolous comments or proposals on the ICERD by the Opposition with the ardent support of the Opposition Media, thus :-

    1. One Opposition pundit could detect threats to the Malays from 5 more UN Treaties ! This is like my late brother who cautioned that we should not do any business because the as yet unborn generations might sue us for our acts today ! There are brains like this !

    2. In the midst of all the dust churned up, a lady claims to be able to do a double Ph.D. As you are aware, out country is full of Ph.Ds and Ph.Ds and Ph.Ds.

    3. Someone keeps on insisting there could be a connection betwee ICERD and 13 May 1969 ! How could this be when in 1969 there were years of built-up of political and socio-economic tensions from the have-nots and political agitations and instigations which culminated in one final explosion.

    In this faux politicised ICERD, the participants are dressed in clean T-shirts with KFC coupons and other goodies in their pockets SURROUNDED BY SKYSCRAPERS OWNED BY THE MALAYS ! In 1969, there were very few Malays in KL and other towns.

    4. ICERD is a non-issue WHEN NO ONE HAS COMPLAINED ABOUT OUR BELOVED CONSITTUTION SAFE-GUARDED BY THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE ROYAL SULTANS WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY YOU TUN WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE. They should try harder next time.

    5. This whole episode is the Opposition’s last stand to create something out of nothing.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our Constitution as safeguarded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans supported by the New and Incorruptible Government as led by you and DSAI and the Team by your side, holds sway for all. No more. No less.

    There is now an attempt to connect the ICERD with the causes of the 13 May 1969 riots by the Opposition media which are irresponsible and non-factual as we know it. I was there right in the middle of the demonstrations, the riots etc. These are the facts. My view of the causes of the 13 May 1969 Riots and the Non-issue ICERD – It’s like chalk and cheese ! :-

    1. From 1957-1972. The Policy of the Government was the Colonial Currency Board Policy. The country spent what it earned based on the exports of rubber and tin only. There were no palm oil which was controlled by 5 Colonial trading houses, Socfin, East Asiatic, H & C, Guthrie and Boustead, or manufactures or FTZs. Our economy was not diversified. As a result, my Malay friends and other non-Malay graduates were poor on their return from overseas. They all began under very humble circumstances as you are aware, Tun. There was no OD. housing loans, credit cards, or financing for SME. The Malays were locked out of their own country since 1n 1957 until the Currency Board of Malaysia, Singapore, Sahah, Sarawak and Brunei was disbanded in 1972. I was there. With the NEP and the BNM taking its full place in the Sun then Malaysia finally blossomed under your 22 year Administration, Tun. I was there.

    2. In 1967 there were the Penang Riots due to the imposition of duties on goods imported into Penang.

    3. From 1964-1965, there were heated exchanges in the Dewan Rakyat between Lee Kuan Yew and the Malaysians in the Government. This was when the refrain concocted by Lee Kuan Yew was raised,’ Malaysia for Malaysians.’ A mischievous phrase with deep emotional meanings. I was there.

    4. An unfortunate incident at Kepong raised the ire of the Opposition. There was a demonstration at Foch Avenue, (now Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock) I was there.

    5. In the 1964 GE, there was a huge rally at Suleiman Court, KL by Lee Kuan Yew who worked up all in attendance. I was there

    6. Lee Kuan Yew formed a Malaysian political party in his own image in 1966 after his ignominious defeat by the Tunku at the 1964 GE.

    7. For the May 1969 GE I was offered the best seat for a Chinese – the Kuala Kubu seat with the State Exco seat by Tun Tan Siew Sin with the blessing of the Tunku and Tun Abdul Razak. My advisers the most senior Chinese adviser on Counter-Insurgency to the Federal Government, Tan Sri Dr C. C. Too and my friends in UMNO Youth advised against my accepting the offer. My friend Datuk Chan Keong Hon won by only 450 votes which had a majority of 5,000 votes previously.

    8. Post-elections celebrations by the Opposition were horrible along Jalan Sultan, Jalan Imbi etc with drums and cymbals making a din. I was there.

    9. On that fateful day 13 May 1969 at 2.30 pm the MCA pulled out of the Alliance in a pique. The Riots began at 5 p.m. for whatever the reason. The MCA returned to the Alliance at 10 PM which was far too late. I was there in my house.

    10. In 1969 and until 1972, there was no restriction to cross the Causeway. There was complete freedom of movement by gangsters and others. Hence, another factor which could have fuelled the incendiary ingredients lit by the catalyst of the GE results of 1969.

    11. AND EVERY ONE WHO WERE ACTIVE IN EVENTS LEADING TO THE 13TH MAY 1969 RIOTS AND ITS PARTICIPATIN HAD A REAL GRUDGE WHICH MADE UP THE EXPLOSIVE MIX OF A TRAGEDY ! The general dissatisfaction of all the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians and all whipped up by raw political instigation !

    BUT ON ICERD WHERE IS/ARE THE ISSUE OR ISSUES Taking into cognizance the fact that billions and billions of ringgits were stolen (by you all know who were responsible).

    In 1969, my Malay friends had to stay with their Civil Servant relatives and had no money to buy the things they most desired. I WAS THERE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    Tun

    The north-east monsoon is engulfing us more and more as the dull and grey mornings confirmed these days. For us, this is part of a typical classic Malaysian morning.

    But when I was a boy, my year-end holidays were either in Penang or Singapore which had dull and rainy weather like this. And I got the impression that these places were forever cloaked in such uninspiring weather. That was my past impression as an ignorant boy.

    However, as I grew into an adult, I began to understand more and I am still learning. Like this ICERD, ICERD, ICERD thing which grew out of nowhere which is whipped around by the Opposition as a headless monster worthy of huge political rallies by leaders who are aware the sanctity of our beloved Malaysia’s Constitution as safeguarded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans since its promulgation after carefully consideration and vetting by the leaders of all parties concerned.

    Not only that, the Consitution had proved that it is a doable one which had enshrined all the possible safeguards for the Majority and the Minority under our Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias.

    Through the years, those who sought the benefits of another Constitution have emigrated. Every person has a choice.

    And it is up to those with the Power, the Will and the Ideas to make our beloved Malaysia a better World always. And this task is forever unending for all in play.

    But the World we live in today is fraught with hidden dangers for our wherewithal since Uncle Sam’s post-Cold War spiel, ‘Globalization, Free Trade, Human Rights’.

    After the Cold War 1948-1989, Singapore was not only badly hit but was denuded of at least 2%-3% of her lush Black Under-counter Trades from 1948-1990 after the BRICS moved into her turf. From 2002-2017, 15 years, Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% while she enjoyed a GDP of 7% during the Cold War, 1948-1990.

    With the sudden change of US Presidency in 2016, Singapore lost not only her Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP which would have ensured her future Survival and Sustainability by turning our beloved Malaysia into a Slave Colony of tiny Singapore but also her mojo the US Democrats !

    Such are the vagaries of Life whether it is about a country or a person. Man proposes. God disposes.

    And overnight, our beloved Malaysia having been financially raped by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government for 14 years, 2004-2018 became one of the 4 most important small countries of the World.

    And under the aegis of the New and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side, Malaysia will fast trek upwards to the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan WITHOUT THE ICERD but only on the back of our home-crafted Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias Constitution as safeguarded by our Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans. This has brought us peace and harmony always.

    And when the BN Leadership sought ways to line their own pockets like between 2004-2018, like the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government ?

    The whole Power Pyramidal Structure collapsed into dust when the whole Establishment, Leaders, elites and all were corrupted and forgot their own pledges to serve the Constitution, the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans and the RAKYAT.

    How could it be explained that a non-descript minor Government Official could amassed RM 2 Billion in a matter of a few years ?

    The confirmation of the rot which has affected the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government by aping authoritarian Singapore with her GLCs is now coming home to roost as published in The Star on Saturday 24 November 2018 on the purported losses by the Government’s holdings in the shares of the GLCs.

    No Western democratic government in the World does business for many reasons eg corruption, abuse of power, direct competition with the private sector etc.

    In the case of Malaysia, such absurd BN attitude towards Good Governance is now coming home to roost as the horror of gigantic corruption and losses in GLCs manned by people who have no business sense or ETHICS, is now more and more confirmed daily. Business has no place for the Government anywhere in the World.

    How could monopolies like MAS, Telekom, or solid Sime Darby, FELDA and many others lose MONEY ? Where else but Malaysia ?

    And here are two factual examples of corruption affecting even the smallest crevice by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which will shock you all Tun :

    1. A half acre of land with beautiful trees reserved for a surau which was undisturbed for 34 years along Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Kuala Lumpur was denuded of all vegetation to build a MOTORCAR SHOWROOM just a few months before 9 May 2018. This horrible piece of handiwork is now lying abandoned with its metal fencing etc providing a spectacle of a bombed out battlefield. There was a last minute rush to complete even working at mid-night. But to no avail. The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government lost.

    2. My friend who established his restaurant in this Selangor PKNS Damansara property since 1996, 22 years which was developed VERY WELL by Selangor PKNS from the 1960s, told me that the property was sold to PNB and on-sold again to a Tan Sri probably at a sugar-daddy price. He expects to be served a Quit Notice soon. SEE HOW CORRUPT AND UNCARING THE BN GOVERNMENT WAS ! A Selangor PKNS Trust property which was in its possession for at least 40 years was sold to another Trust PNB which was on-sold to a private person probably at an absurdly low price deliberately forgetting its entrusted role for the Malays as their Trustee by making commercial moves in their own personal interest !

    THE EXPLOITATION OF PUBLIC MALAY TRUST ASSETS TO MAKE MONEY EVEN AT THIS MICROSCOPIC LEVEL AS THESE TWO SMALL EXAMPLES SHOWED that no tiny crevice is left untouched or not raped by the officials of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun.

    As the successful year 2018, is fast coming to a close and the school holidays have begun in earnest, this week was the week that was.

    ICERD – the non-issue which was picked up by both sides as an ISSUE arising out of a NON-ISSUE ! Petroleum prices dropped like bricks ! The small-holders giant savings bank FELDA cleaned out of cash by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government !

    Soon the hapless FELDA small-holders will require 3 giant bail-outs.

    But these events will not upset the stable equilibrium which had been set in place during your 22 year Administration 1981 – 2003.

    I am referring your important and significant creation of the 6 to 8 Million strong Malay Middle Income Group which was non-existent as late as 1981 !

    History plays an important part of our beloved Malaysia, its soul and body. We should never forget historical events which formed our existence today. If all are conversant with our Constitution safe-guarded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans, they would not bother to run around the hot and humid streets of KL !

    It is the ignorance on both sides of the political divide which caused this so. And the stability today as provided by the 6 – 8 Million Malay Middle Income Group together with 6 – 8 Million of the Non-Malay Middle Income Group is a powerful force to reckon with which provides the peace and harmony through its valuable social ballast today. Somewhat like the 350 Million English speaking Indians of India !

    This is our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s greatest and finest achievement in the face of the non-existence of anything but only his Executive Will and Power as a Prime Minister 1981 – 2003. The Malay Middle Income Group was created out of nowhere so to speak. As at 13 May 1969, the best assets of Malaysia were owned 70% by the British, 25% of the 3rd rate assets the Chinese and only 2% the Malays.

    The first brilliant and courageous act of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad we must never forget.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Our beloved Malaysia was to be delivered as a Slave Colony of Singapore by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government via the TPPA/CPTPP after the 14th GE. Because of your mistake which is a small price to pay, our beloved Malaysia can now fast trek upwards to the First Tier of Development as led by the New and Incorruptible Government of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    This is the bright side of the proverbial coin as I see it, Jho Lo !

    Another dull and cool morning today !

    My happiness is to see my grand-daughter collecting something from her favourite SMK being the last day for her in school. Next year for her is another year. It is good to see our grand-children grow up normally in a peaceful and harmonious environment like our beloved Malaysia.

    On this score, I think about Jho Lo who is now a fugitive somewhere in this small World of ours.

    My message to him is, ‘ Jho Lo, your Life expectation is at least another 70 years.

    Countless numbers of Malaysians have contributed to our beloved Malaysia without reward of any kind.

    We all recognise you have made a mistake. I for one make mistakes every day. You did not murder anyone but your mistake only concerned money.

    Is MONET MONEY MONEY all that important as you age along in life hiding from the Interpol ?

    My sincere advice to you is to return home and admit that it was all a mistake as a honourable Chinese and you will find it will not be as bad as what you envisage in your mind now.

    Come home, Jho Lo and save our beloved Malaysia from all the headaches and time tracing you and the MONEY, MONEY, MONEY.

    You may not have heard of me but I could deliver to the Malaysian interests in 1972-1975 their first BIG BUSINESS CONGLOMERATE FOR ONLY RM 23 MILLION WHICH THE SAME MALAYSIAN MANAGEMENT COULD BANKRUPT IT TWICE AT RM 1.20 BILLION IN 1996 and RM 2.10 BILLION IM 2010 RESPECTIVELY AND WAS NOT CHARGED OR GO TO JAIL.

    My total reward for the delivery of Sime Darby was just RM 500,000 before tax for 18 years as a Director. And I am exceedingly HAPPY ! It was not the MONEY but the ACHIEVEMENT OF DOING SOMETHING FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA LIKE OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS COLLEAGUES !

    Nowadays, some fellows will just throw this RM 500,000 or more on one card at a casino as you are aware.

    Our beloved Malaysia is unique in many respects. Come home, Jho Lo ! Be a honourable Malaysian.

    AS IT IS SAID, ‘ 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.’

    Come home, Jho Lo you have not murdered anyone. After all it’s only MONEY MONEY MONEY. And you are not the one and only. I can give you a whole list of fellows who have done worst things than you, Jho, Lo !

    Malaysia Boleh, Jho Lo, as always ! No problem. Come home and help Tun and us to make Malaysia Great, Jho Lo ! The Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year to you Jho Lo ! No hard feelings, Jho Lo ! We are Malaysians !

    Suddenly a new issue has cropped up. It’s ICERD, ICERD, ICERD.

    Out of no where or out of the blue, this became an issue of some importance as the matter ICERD, ICERD, ICERD is being whipped up politically with the intensity of marshalling crowds and crowds of people all up in arms to protest at ICERD, a NON_ISSUE. From zero base, this ICERD which has not appeared in any form until now, apparently appeared sponsored by someone somewhere sometime.

    One of your major Parties has denied anything to do with ICERD.

    Since ICERD does not exist legally and as you rightly pointed out only a 2/3rd majority will legalise ICERD, where is the issue on the subject of a non-issue when no single party has a 2/3rd majority ?

    And if the Prime Minister of the New and Incorruptible Government has said it takes a 2/3rd majority to turn ICERD legal to exist in Malaysia, only then this becomes an issue. Where is ICERD an issue which has no locus standi ?

    But there are media reports on forthcoming rallies of thousands against this ICERD which is a non-issue and ICERD floats in the head of maybe of only one proposer. How to protest against a non-issue which exists in the head of a Minority of one or two ?

    In our Malaysian Style Democracy which subscribes to our Constitution, our loyalty and devotion to the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans, peaceful protests are permitted given certain parameters.

    But in this case of ICERD which exists only in the minds of a Minority of one or two, how to protest ?

    The Constitution already protected the Majority for 61 years since Merdeka. Without the 2/3rd Majority as the Tun said, the ICERD will forever be a non-issue.

    A dull and calm morning today which is as good as any other. But the headlines are sizzling hot to the cognoscenti of esoteric subjects, thus :-
    1. Singapore’s 3rd Quarter Y/Y 3% disappoints. Estimate 4%.

    2. Singapore’s 2019 Growth weakens from slowing major Export Countries.

    These are ominous headlines for us and foretell what will happen also to our beloved Malaysia’s future Growth and Economy. Forewarned is forearmed, Tun.

    The bright side of the proverbial coin is that our beloved Malaysia is now under your Leadership with the New and Incorruptible Government which lately set out the 4 Thrusts of Policies being Foreign, Economic, Education and Health.

    This is like the old saying, ‘ You must have Peace and Harmony at Home before you can win fighting in the streets.’

    Now we are all set to emerge Strong, United and Proud after the Perfect Storm to come which is the Trade War which you mentioned in Singapore recently, Tun. And Petroleum is used as a Weapon of choice !

    Not only that, with our Foreign Policy shaped as ‘friends of all and enemy to none.’ this is sound and basic.

    A firm determination to do things well by your Team and DSAI by your side, Tun, our beloved Malaysia will navigate all sorts of whirlpools or minefields without mishap.

    Unlike the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government who had our beloved Malaysia (31 Millions) hung and quartered for delivery via TPPA/CPTPP as a slave Colony to tiny Singapore with 900,000 male Chinese, aged 21 to 50 years.

    Not only that, our beloved Malaysia would have been turned into a Dictatorship like a South American country with the Dictator ruling the whole country with all being utterly poor and dressed in rags.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Fortunately this did not happen due to the brilliance and courage of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Some of the Rakyat is still not aware of the importance and significance of this, Tun. I do not blame them due to the peaceful and legal Democratic System of our beloved Malaysia.

    Forewarned is forearmed, Tun ! I have every confidence our beloved Malaysia will rise and rise after emerging from the Perfect Storm under your Leadership. No problem.

    These few mornings will see the school year ending for my grand-daughter who has not missed a single day in the SMK throughout the year. She loves the SMK, the teachers and her fellow students. She has the proper mind set. This is important in later Life. I discouraged her from malingering even though I loved to stay in bed past 5.30 a.m.

    This is the most important hour of the day for planter whether manager or worker. A colonial practice when the day is cool and conducive to open air manual work. By 10 a.m. most of the work is done in a plantation.

    An interesting headline this morning in The Star, thus :-

    1. ‘FELDA CASH POSER’. This article poses more questions than answers on the subject being FELDA. However, certain basic facts about the plantation industry should be known if a person wants to know and understand more about it.

    1. A plantation is managed according to the weather in the mornings. If rain comes, the colonial practice was no-pay for the worker for dong no work.
    2. Not only that, the produce of a plantation is sold subjected to the vagaries of the market price which may go high or down depending on demand. And in the case of the palm oil, the international demand.
    3. The cost of production is kept as low as possible. From the number of bunches a worker harvests to the efficiency of the oil mill which crushes the palm fruits to produce the 1st grade of raw oil which is orange in colour. If the Mill Manager is crooked, he would let more raw oil into the waste of palm oil sludge. At the end, this will add up to the inefficiency of the estate. Hence, a badly managed estate or small holders holdings are less efficient in terms of scale than the large privately owned estates. The production of palm oil per hectare shows.
    4. No proper planter borrows from the bank to plant the estate. The word is never borrow to plant oil palms or rubber trees in view of the high risks of investment in a plantation, the slowest business in the World.
    5. For every Ringgit profit made by the estate from the sale of the palm oil or rubber, a minimum of 30 sens is reserved for replanting. To be on the safe side, the more reserves the better.
    6. The reserves of cash is NEVER invested in fixed assets like hotels, office buildings, shares, illiquid investments etc. Because when the plantation requires cash, none is available to weed, apply fertilizer, replant or care for the workers who may leave the plantation looking for another job.
    7. The owner must be hands on dealing with the management of a plantation because the manager and the employees must be aware that the owner cares for them in a profession which calls for getting up at 4.30 a.m. and stopping work at 12 p.m. every day of the week if there is no rainfall. Otherwise, demoralisation sets in and all sorts of negative acts take place. Managing a plantation even though it is one of the slowest business, is a 24 hour job. In a way, a planter has an unusual job at hand.
    8. There is no place for an air-conditioned executive or planter in his suit or a politician to oversee a plantation business. They would not know how to begin.
    9. Not one sen should be taken out of the Plantation System because in the past there were great crises affecting the rubber price or the palm price which led to bankruptcies of the undertakings.
    10. With expanding acreages of oil palm around the World and competition against at least 7 other edible oils with an overlay of politics, the palm oil has a tough role to play to make profits.

    If we check out the above points Tun against what happened to FELDA since it came out of its socio-economic cocoon in 2012, we will find THAT THE MODEL APPLIED TO FELDA AS A PUBLIC LISTED ENTITY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, IS COMPLETELY WRONG.

    The listing of whatever should NEVER have taken place because as we can envisage now, the paper money of RM 6 Billion which was created at the beginning, is now all gone. On top of this, another RM 8 Billion debt was created with a back-drop OF FALLING PALM OIL PRICES !

    With all due respect, the FELDA smallholders have been CHEATED OF THEIR WEALTH AND LIVELIHOOD BY THOSE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE RISKS OF MANAGING A PLANTATION BUT ONLY TO GRAB MONEY.

    I foresee the deficit is not RM 8 Billion but much more which the New and Incorruptible Government will have put into FELDA eg. One bail-out for the settlers. Another to up-keep the plantations. A third bail-out for replanting the old palms. These bail-outs will cost more than RM 8 Billion as these are RECURRENT !

    Hence, when huge amounts of money are siphoned off into illiquid investments out of FELDA, there is NO MONEY LEFT FOR THE PLANTATIONS vis-a vis the settlers.

    It is common sense that TWO BUSINESSES CANNOT BE CREATED OUT OF ONE TO MAKE MONEY. Whoever thought of doing this MODEL must be blind, deaf and dumb !

    Tun, the FELDA Scandal to come is 2MDB ! Those responsible should be charged in Court for recommending such an absurd Scheme to those who mis-managed it . Who were the Advisers ?

    Our beloved Malaysia had the BEST SOCIO-ECONOMIC SCHEME FOR THE RAKYAT IN THE WORLD AS ENVISAGED BY THE GREAT STATESMAN TUN ABDUL RAZAK, A TRUE PATRIOT WITHOUT A PEER until this Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government Leaders began to rape every niche in the land eg. from the hard-working doctors, Bangla-deshis to the settlers and small-holders. Their Greed knew no bounds.

    Quoting the famous Tun Ismail Mohd Ali, ‘ The whole FELDA Scheme stinks !’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! With the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government even the hundreds of thousands of small-holders (who were well-looked after by the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak, his trusted confidant Tan Sri Taib Andak and the reliable and superb Raja Tan Sri R.M Alias) were not spared !

    The latest issue of the MMA News has three interesting articles of note, thus :-

    1. Founding Member of ICAN Nobel Peace Prize Winner – Datuk Seri Dr Ronald S McCoy – a humble and Great Malaysian.

    2. Leadership – Do you have what it takes ?. Quote Martin Luther King Jr.

    ” The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

    3. An afternoon with Dr Andrew Choo –

    Quote, ” However, he believes that if more principled people (e.g. doctors, professionals) go into politics, there would be less temptation as they do not need to depend on politics for monetary gains. “The results of GE14 should not make us complacent. If not for Tun Dr Mahathir, who was brave enough to stand up and be heard, things would NOT have changed.” he advises.

    Tun, here are 3 notable articles from the Journal of the MMA which encapsulate the importance of the views of a respected profession which was brutalised not too long ago by the Ministers of Health of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which ended this year 2018 by demanding experienced General Practitioners to take exams to qualify for their Annual Practising Licence which had never happened before or in any other country for over 100 years.

    I lost my Licence this year which I cherished since 1962.

    Corruption by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government knew no bounds ! It is alleged the Ministers of Health of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government were in collusion not only with the tycoons with pharmacy chains to give the dispensing rights to medically unqualified pharmacists but also with INSURANCE COMPANIES.

    Money money money free for all under the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government !

    Every little niche where MONEY was to be found the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government raped big time. No niche is spared. As a result, the cost of living rockets sky high under a cloak of lies and greed.

    Tun, this is a good time to cleanse the Augean Stables which are worse than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome and put our beloved Malaysia on her rightful and designated path to Greatness and Glory.

    No more little small minded crooks to hold POWER over us the Rakyat.

    We all support you Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the New and Incorruptible Government by your side.

    Together we the Rakyat will go places with the 4 Thrusts Policies, Foreign, Economic, Education and Health.

    There is only ONE WAY, Tun, YOUR WAY AND IT IS UP AND UP.

    No more 12,000 pieces of jewellery under the bed or one bribe of RM 187 Million plus a RM 5 Million baksheesh.

    We are Malaysians, Normal, Civilised , United and Strong. Nothing will deter us from reaching the top-most Tier of Human Endeavour through the National Car Project and all the goodies to come from the New and Incorruptible Government in which we trust.

    Malaysia Bolleh Tun as always ! No problem.

    Tun

    Welcome home again.

    And the lovely Malaysian morning smiles with you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah with the bright sunshine, blue sky and cumulus clouds floating by !

    By chance I wandered into a Japanese bakery in my district staffed by young Japanese and patronised by the old silver haired Japanese. The latter were their frugal-selves as usual

    Reflecting on this peaceful and happy scene, I thought about your pioneering Japanese bakery shop of many years ago which heralded and attracted these young Japanese to come all the way from Japan to set-up shop here. And the silver haired Japanese retirees who have made our beloved Malaysia their Second Home. What better testimonials than these that Malaysia is and has always been to the cognoscenti to be on par with the best for a normal and decent living.

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government between 2004 to 2018 nearly completely raped and slaughtered our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat.

    It is horrifying to note that Leaders with the most power could wallop a single bribe at RM 187 Million plus another RM 5 Million as baksheesh !

    My 1972 Sime Darby Concept could deliver to the Malays with the support of the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak, YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah for only Pernas RM 23 Million cash and by 2 Singaporean banks blessed by their Boss ex gratis !

    It’s crazy, Tun !

    Like the saying,’ When Greed knows no bounds, it’s like a snake swallowing an elephant.’ And I thought that my jocular comments on 10,000 Rolex were the limit. But a few days ago, I was proved wrong. A figure of 12,000 pieces of jewellery were mentioned in Court !

    However what I mentioned are the nitty-gritty of Greed and Power. The important scenario now before us is the fact on the information and observation which you have personally gathered at the 2 important forums in Singapore and Port Moresby in recent weeks.

    As an observer, it was crystal clear to me that thanks to the collapse of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government on 9 May 2018, the cleaning of the Augean Stables ( worst then the Rape of the Sabine Women of Ancient Rome ) by the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great as led by you is a routine matter to bring the whole beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat back to an even keel of Normality BUT THE GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD UP OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS AN ASIAN SWITZERLAND IN THE MAKING UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP, TUN. Trekking upwards to the likes of the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan – To become one of the most formidable and strong countries of the World. The Malaysians, the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians, the Kadazans, Ibans and all can and will do this under your proven brilliant and courageous Leadership.

    There was a timely and appropriate comment by the FM this morning. He wants us to focus on the 3 thrusts being the economy, education and health. These 3 thrusts fit Malaysia to get up there with the 3 Greats under your Leadership to a T. After everyone is tired of hearing this corrupt BN Leader was probed 28 times and another 130 times. The most probed politicians in the World, Tun !

    Yes Tun ! All the essential ingredients to transform our beloved Malaysia into a GREAT are there.

    The peaceful and democratic GE 14 is the first essential ingredient followed by the expression of policies to win the confidence and support of the Rakyat.

    Now, the 3 THRUSTS POLICY AND NOT THE MULTI-PROBES OF CORRUPT BN POLITICIANS which encompasses the National Car Project, a sensible and proper School Curriculum for average students helmed by our Dynamic Helmsman, the expectations of future Fair, Just and Normal Policies applied on a good citizenry, other Socio-economic goodies to come, and finally, an astute and wise Foreign Policy of great importance, will be the WAY to go, Tun under your Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    Cheeky opposition naysayers have been trying to split the New and Incorruptible Government as led by you Tun as ONE MAN SHOWS. This does not happen anymore in the New Era Malaysia unlike under the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government when a person can ask for a single bribe of RM 187 Million with another RM 5 Million as baksheesh !

    Hence, sports are great for schools to train young Malaysians to work AS A TEAM TOGETHER instead of firing blanks in all directions when they achieved positions of POWER !

    I must confess I only took up sports after I graduated. Once I nearly drowned off Port Dickson. Different strokes for different folks, Tun !

    WITH A CLEAN SLATE, AND THE REALIZATION THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA SHOULD BE ASIA’S SWITZERLAND IN THE MAKING MADE POSSIBLE BY THE MALAYSIANS, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS, KADAZANS, IBANS AND ALL, and also, as ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD, TUN, our beloved Malaysia will be recognised more and more as an important VOICE of WISDOM in all future INTERNATIONAL FORUMS unlike under the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government when we were just abang-adeks from the Ulus, North of Singapore !

    Yes Tun !

    IT IS THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT’S POLICY OF THE FOUR THRUSTS (WITH MY APOLOGIES TO THE YB FM). – THE FOREIGN POLICY, THE ECONOMIC POLICY, THE EDUCATION POLICY AND THE HEALTH POLICY as led by you with DSAI and the Team by your side. We will all be there. No more. No less. Man proposes. God disposes !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  37. mubarakchan Nov 18,2018 12:21 PM

    Tun

    With the clean slate which is now before us. NO CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES, NO CORRUPTION OR NEPOTISM, NO EXECUTIVED ABUSE OF SIME DARBY FOR OVER TWO GENERATIONS. our minds and hearts are now completely FOCUS on the immediate task at hand which is the successful launch of the National Car Project in fulfilment of all our DREAMS for the success of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat.

    Only ONE WAY to go, Tun ! Your WAY.

    And after 5 mornings, the sun has finally come out smiling with blue sky and white clouds !

    From what little to know or experienced a Life-time, a suitable choice as a strategic partner for Sime Darby in this automotive venture is a Japanese motor-car company.

    As an independently minded person, I have traded and knew the Japanese when I was young. They did not disappoint me in any way. I like their go-go attitude in business. Their straight-forwardness, honesty, conformity, discipline, courtesy etc which are all geared to make money but without any warts or leave a bad taste in the mouth.

    The Japanese record in business is legend being visionary, innovative and creative. From their little boxes of Datsuns, Hondas and Toyatas with four wheels in the 1950s, these cars in 2018 are now competing with the best of Germany !

    This time round, hopefully, the engine is made in its entirety in Malaysia and avoid any notion of CKD assembly because then the whole plot in building a motorcar is lost.

    Maybe with aggressive rivals this time round, such a normal and fair request is doable to the Japanese because it is to their benefit and mutual benefits that they do not drive us into the arms of their rivals whoever they are.

    This is good business for the Japanese making a National Car in the NEXUS of ASEAN with a population of 630 Million. Times have changed, Tun. Strike while the iron is hot !

    Yes ! Malaysia should choose a partner with an established record so that we can learn from them as well.

    And as we are the Asian Switzerland in the making, it pays we have as many different countries invested in our midst as possible and avoid a LOP-SIDED SITUATION !

    These are wondrous days for all the Rakyat, Tun. The New Era of true Malaysian endeavours trekking upwards to rub shoulders with the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan under your brilliant and courageous Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    II IS NOW OR NEVER FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND THE RAKYAT, TUN !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem.

  38. mubarakchan Nov 17,2018 7:30 PM

    Tun

    Not only these are interesting and difficult times.

    But these are times when a person stands up to be counted in a situation of all things being equal. Now that we have a Good Young and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great with DSAI by your side.

    These are times when we Malaysians have finally obtained a change for better values in terms of everything which give us hope to improve ourselves and our beloved Malaysia, and push her towards the highest tier possible for our future generations to come.

    IF WE DO NOT DO THIS NOW UNDER YOUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP WE WILL NEVER DO THIS AGAIN.

    A chance of a Life time and for Sime Darby a chance after TWO GENERATIONS !

    The brake on our Development and Progress caused by the RAPINE YEARS OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT – 2004 to 2018. With so much money stolen how could our beloved Malaysia progress during 2004 to 2018 ? Could all the statistics be FAKED ?

    However, it is not about the RAPINE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT I AM TALKING ABOUT BUT A MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE WHICH HAS ALWAYS CONCERNED THOSE LIKE YOURSELF TUN !

    It is how to uplift the MALAYS ONTO A PERMANENT HIGHEST PLANE OF ENDEAVOUR because without this element of achievement, the CHINESE, INDIANS, KADAZANS, IBANS AND ALL CANNOT PROGRESS.

    A Nation cannot and should not be lop-sided in any facet or sphere of activity but be evenly and fairly guided by the Leadership.

    I NOW STAND UP TO BE COUNTED.

    I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT WITHOUT A CREDIBLE NATIONAL CAR PROJECT OF SOME MAGNITUDE THE MALAYS WILL FIND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH UP TO THE HIGHEST TIER OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS.

    The Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans and all will also be retarded.

    Also, the other industries like the hi-tech, bio-tech etc are not conducive and effective like the automotive industry to up-lift NOT ONLY THE MALAYS BUT ALSO THE CHINESE, INDIANS, KADAZANS, IBANS AND ALL.

    THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY IN ALL ITS ASPECTS IS THE WAY TO GO, TUN.

    TUN, YOU WERE COMPLETELY CORRECT IN YOUR THINKING AND DECISION OVER TWO GENERATIONS AGO. And you are even more correct today, 2018 ! It is the automotive industry which will create the biggest cake for all the Rakyat for now and the future. There are no two ways about this. Only one Way, Tun. YOUR WAY !

    Hence, when the Executives in Sime Darby expressed an interest in the forthcoming Third National Car Project, I was completely bowled over as some people say.

    FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS ON THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH TUN !

    Sell off all the useless assets of Sime Darby asap like in CHINA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, THE PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT, LIBERIA AND SOUTH PACIFIC PLANTATIONS AND DEAD ASSETS LIKE TESCO, HOTELS ETC. which were bought for the personal interests of the Sime Darby executives at the expense of the stakeholders. A SHEER WASTE OF THE STAKEHOLDERS MONEY !

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS !

    We all will be there with the Greats, Tun ! If a small country like the CZECH REPUBLIC WITH NO RESOURCES CAN BUILD A BEAUTIFUL MOTORCAR so can we Malaysians Tun.

    A MCA leader in the late 1970s called me a ‘MALAY BUM SUCKER’ to cover his corruption which resulted in making S$ 100 Million in 7 years in corrupt politics. He remitted this S$ 100 Million to his girl friend’s account in Hong Kong. My friend did it for him.

    THE REASON WHY I DEVELOPED THE SIME DARBY 1972 CONCEPT WAS FOR THE MALAYS TO GAIN A FAST TREK ENTRY INTO BIG BUSINESS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT AS AT 13 MAY 1969 THE MALAYS HAD ONLY 2% OF THE TOTAL ASSETS OF THE NATION.

    Hence, it is alleged the Chinaman like this MCA ex-leader could grab S$ 100 Million after pretending to be for the Chinese in politics and gave it to his girl friend. And he was further alleged to wallop Sime Darby assets cheaply like Benta and the Nova Scotia estate which became the Bukit Beruntong tropical slum. And this ungrateful fellow called me ‘A MALAY BUM SUCKER’ !

    TUN, WITHOUT SIME DARBY THERE WOULD NOT BE ANY RICH CHINESE TODAY ! This the political and socio-economic reality of our beloved Malaysia.

    Similarly, without a CREDIBLE NATIONAL CAR PROJECT AS PART OF A WIDER AUTOMOTVE INDUSTRY FOR THE MALAYS AND ALL, THERE WILL BE NO PROGRESS FOR THE NON-MALAYS, CHINESE, INDIANS, KADAZANS, IBANS AND ALL.

    Tun you have always been correct on this score, THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY NOT ONLY FOR THE MALAYS BUT THE NON-MALAYS AS WELL. And we all know why the 1st Project failed because of the CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES which stole hundreds of millions of ringgits.

    In manufacturing, not ONE SEN can be taken out of the System. Even the money from selling the wastes must be returned to the System. Conversely, all successful manufacturers are honest and hard-working.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! With your guidance and leadership in the giant AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY TO COME, ALL MALAYSIANS SHOULD THANK YOU JUST FOR THE CONCEPT.

    Tun

    These are not halcyon days for our beloved Malaysia and the Rakyat after the rapine years of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    These are years when all the good-hearted and sincere peoples of Malaysia will stand strong, united and determined to face the crises which have been created by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government THROUGH NEGLECT 2004 TO 2018. What am I talking about, Tun ?

    Just one crisis only apart from the huge financial conundrum left by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004 to 2018 which created a ripple of minor crises.

    IT IS THE LOOMING FORTHCOMING OF CRASH OF THE PALM OIL PRICE which industry is caught unfortunately by cross-head winds emanating from the EU, CHINA, US and the rest of the World. The build up of these powerful forces are slowly or rapidly coming to a head. Who knows what the future will bring ?

    By going back to the basics of the plantation industry which incurs extremely hard-work under the tropical sun – an industry created by colonialists – a person will understand that the palm oil is not only subjected to the vicissitudes and vagaries of the climate but also that of the market-place. And POLITICAL FORCES COUPLED WITH OTHER UNKNOWNS.

    The plantation industry is not song and dance as the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government knew it. Huge investments and thousands of livelihoods are involved for long periods of time, in term of years.

    Oil palm investment is one of the SLOWEST IN THE WORLD. Hence, every sen is saved for the rainy day when the price of palm oil collapses below its COST.

    And for every ringgit, a prudent planter would have to save 30 sens at least for replanting because the oil palm has a useful productive life of only 25 years.

    And the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government did not think and committed total neglect by FAILING IN THEIR LEADERSHIP OF THE SMALL-HOLDERS IN OUR NATION. How ?

    When the FELDA entity was listed, there was RM 6 Billion cash. Now it has RM 1.89 Billion cash and RM 6 Billion debt. In other words, RM 12 Billion approximately disappeared into thin air through utter CORRUPTION, BUYING EXPENSIVE AND SELLING LOW WITHOUT AN IOTA OF CARE AND CONSIDERATION FOR THE SMALL-HOLDERS.

    It is a great shame.

    From its inception arising from the ideas of the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Raxak, the FELDA was established by his trusted and capable friend Tan Sri Taib Andak until it was taken over by another reliable and capable Tengku Tan Sri R.M. Alias.

    After your retirement Tun, it was alleged the oil palm sludge was stolen from the GLC oil mills free of charge as organised from the top.

    From 2004 to 2018, it was one great RAPE of the valuable assets as corporatized and owned by the shareholders who were given a few thousand ringgits.

    THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHEATING AND SETTING UP OF THE SMALL-HOLDERS WITH THIS CORPORATE SCHEME SHOULD BE CHARGED IN COURT.

    From the early 1960s to the listing of FELDA in 2014 or thereabouts, over 50 years, under the Management of Tan Sri Taib Andak and Tengku Tan Sri R.M. Alias, THERE WAS NOT IOTA OF MISMANAGEMENT OF THE FELDA ESTATES AS OWNED BY THE SMALL-HOLDERS ! In less than 50 months, ALL FELDA’S MONEY OF BILLIONS OF RINGGITS WERE GONE !

    At this juncture, ALL THE MONEY IS GONE ! BILLIONS OF RINGGITS DISAPPEARED FROM FELDA’S COFFERS ! At a time of a huge looming crisis in the price of palm oil caught in all sorts of negative cross-winds beyond its control due to the wanton neglect of a Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. These leaders have never heard of ‘PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE, TUN ! Fun and games all over the place occupied their mental space. As we Malaysians say. ‘Where got time ?’

    With all due respect, Tun, this is a tough ( a favourite word of an old friend of mine ) job carved out for your New Young and Incorruptible Government. Hopefully this crisis will not happen.

    But FELDA with no MONEY, how ? However, I am confident your brilliance and courage with DSAI and the Team by your side, this looming crisis of the oil palm industry will be averted. The first inkling of this crisis will be the drop in income for the small-holders which will affect their daily livelihood like food and daily expenses – the First Bail- out. Then, the money for the daily expenditures required by the estates.- the Second Bail-out. Finally the Third Bail-out will be the money needed for replanting the old palms.

    Operating a plantation is not like pressing a button but the crafting of a whole host of factors to make an estate work.

    FELDA with no money is certain to require a BAIL-OUT OF UNKNOWN QUANTITY DUE TO THE FACT SO MANY SMALL-HOLDERS LIVELIHOODS ARE NOW AT RISK.

    FORE-WARN IS FORE-ARM TUN !

    Those public listed companies like SIME DARBY with property developments especially overseas like Singapore will be hit badly because in the management of a plantation every sen counts and cannot be taken OUT OF THE PLANTATION SYSTEM so that there is a cash reserve for the rainy day. Hopefully I am wrong in this from every aspect.

    Man proposes. God disposes !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Fore-warn is fore-arm. The small-holders is a very important group in our Society as we are all aware.

  40. mubarakchan Nov 17,2018 8:57 AM

    Tun

    After TWO GENERATIONS, finally Sime Darby came up with the right answer which was the intention of my 1972 Concept which could only be delivered with the understanding and support of our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and others.

    Yesterday was a joyous moment for me and my heart cried with joy at the news that Sime Darby after TWO GENERATIONS OF ABUSE has finally come to its senses and adopt its intended role in all its finality.

    What more can I say that the news made my day and my life-long intent of delivering something good for all the Rakyat of our beloved Malaysia. I say this from my heart. No problem.

    As I will reveal the facts that those who had a bite of the Sime Darby cherry during these TWO GENERATIONS did not know whether they were coming and going but only cared for the temporal material comfort provided by Sime Darby during their temporary tenure.

    The good thing is Sime Darby after being abused by the Executives for TWO GENERATIONS outlasted them all.

    Now with your support and guidance SIME DARBY SHOULD PLAY ITS INTENDED AND IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE SERVICE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT by doing things which provide jobs, proper investments in areas which are beyond the reach of the normal Malaysian investor like light engineering industry of manufacturing motor-cars and so on through M and A of British or European companies which may be in disarray soon. I will now relate in a chronological order actual events which took place involving Sime Darby during this period.

    Sime Darby was in the control by the Malaysians in November 1975 arising from my 1972 Concept with the help of 2 Singaporean banks and the unofficial blessing of the Boss. The cost to Pernas Securities was Rm 23 Million. A bribe today as mentioned was RM 187 Million.

    The Management was British – Bywater (an ex-lingerie executive of Kayser Bondor) was the Chief Executive who replaced Dennis Pinder when he was arrested by the Singapore Police for CBT involving giving jewellery to his secretary. Dr Bright was his aide who got into trouble later at the London Transport of which he was the Chairman. He bought an Aston Martin for his personal use !

    At the last EGM in November 1975, the ex-Minister of Finance made a scene to the embarrassment of all present by loudly accusing the Malaysians of being ‘ultras’ because he was left out of out the sensitive negotiations concerning the take-over.

    Not only that the Malaysians were generally sore with his performance on 13 May 1969 at 2.30 pm when he pulled MCA out of the Alliance in a pique. The tragic riots followed at 5 p.m. By 10 p.m. the MCA was back in the Alliance. It was far too late. He was the most pro-British Chinese and it would have been imprudent for any information to be leaked out to the British.

    In 1975, the Board of Sime Darby PLC consisted of 2 pro-British Chinese, 2 British expats, Tan Sri Taib Andak and myself appointed on the recommendation of Tun Abdul Razak.

    After the EGM which was aborted, the ex-Minister of Finance met the Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn and was appointed the Chairman of Sime Darby until his demise in 1988 or thereabouts.

    At this juncture, the major assets of Sime Darby as put together by Dennis Pinder were :- 1) Amoy Canning Hong Kong property. 2) Shaw Wallace with its Indian liquor monopoly 3) Orchard Towers, Singapore 4) 200,000 acres of plantation equal to Singapore at low tide.

    Soon after, the expats proposed that the Orchard Towers be sold back to the contractor at S$ 22 Million because of cracks in the walls which might cause the collapse of the Towers. The Towers are still there after 50 years ! Tan Sri Taib and myself did not openly voiced dissent.

    Subsequently, the valuable Amoy Canning property which was earmarked to be the MRT Terminus of Hong Kong was proposed by the expats to be auctioned off. The Directors were invited to Hong Kong. Both Tan Sri Taib and myself did not take up the offer. No private person auctions of his property in Hong Kong. Only the Government do so. The auction failed because there was no bid. It is well-known that a clique of about 9 property developers formed a ring to control the property auctions of Hong Kong. The valuable property was eventually developed in conjunction with Hang Lung Development which was one of the clique.

    By the early 1980s, the valuable Shaw Wallace with its liquor monopoly of India and its lush Assam Frontier Tea Estates was sold for a song at about RM 150 Million to an Indian in the Gulf who became a billionaire from this. His flamboyant son became the owner of the Kingfisher Airline and is embroiled with the Indian Government at present which wants to extradite him from London !

    In 1982, I suggested that Sime Darby grabbed all the palm oil bunkering facilities in China. Nothing happened but Sime Darby established a small one in Port Said, Egypt. 10 years later, all the bunkering facilities were owned by IOI, KLK or the Kuok Group ! In 2010 Sime Darby invested RM 2 Billion in a port facility in Eastern China. Now these facilities are for sale.

    From 1981 to 1992, nothing new by way of business was committed by Sime Darby. I was aware of some non-Malays were nibbling at the Sime Darby cherry. One MCA leader told the World that I helped him to acquire Benta. The fact was the ex-MCA Chairman did it.

    By 1992, I was asked to resign by the Executives who were occupying the cushy jobs created by my 1972 Concept. MY TOTAL EMOLUMENTS FROM 1974 TO 1992, 14 years WERE RM 500,000 BEFORE TAX. Nowadays, junior executives take the same in one year with datuk-ships to boot.

    I was sacked by the Executives because I asked why the valuable Nova Scotia property north of Rawang was sold to this MCA leader for only RM 4 Million which was then housed in a public listed company and shuffled up to RM 88 Million purchased by Chan Ah Chye and Perangsaan Selangor and turned into a tropical slum ?

    The reply from the Executives was that since RM 4 Million was less than 2% of the total assets of Consolidated Plantations, there was no necessity to report to the Board. Like this, the Executives could have sold all the assets without the Board knowledge ! Corruption in Sime Darby by Malaysian Executives first appeared here. I was aware that some non-Malays were nibbling at the Sime Darby palm oil cherry from the 1980s !

    And when I strongly objected to the purchase of a pondan oil palm estate in Sabah at RM 32 Million by Sime Darby which no one wanted for RM 20 Million for 20 years, the Executives were forced to get rid of me because they assumed that the late Tun Tan Siew Sin appointed me as a Director as they pretended not to know our late Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak was responsible. Vide. Far Eastern Economic Review. November 1975.

    After getting rid of me, the Sime Darby Executives went on a buying spree purchasing useless assets like Jiffy condoms, LAC Refrigerators, Sandestin Resort in Florida to train Malaysians in hospitality management ( MARA was doing this since 1966 ) and golf. This was bought at the pre-Crash 1997 price of RM 72 Million and sold after the Crash at RM 72 Million. Wonder of wonders, the Excutives reported that no loss was incurred ! And all these fellows were supposed to be qualified accountants ! This was the time of the FIRST BANKRUPTCY OF SIME DARBY in 1996 and after Tun’s retirement in 1973, IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE SIME DARBY WENT BANKRUPT AGAIN.

    Indeed, this happened in 2010. I knew it was going to happen because just before the event, Sime Darby wanted to buy my friend’s orchid farm near Rawang for RM 10 Million ! How crazy Sime Darby had become ! And after the 2nd Bankruptcy Sime Darby invested RM 2 Billion in China !

    Not many people are aware that Sime Darby has a Foundation which should not be established at all. NO PRIVATE PHILANTHROPIST owns Sime Darby. Therefore, all money belongs to the stakeholders NOT THE EXECUTIVES and should be reserved for investment and the plantations which are the slowest business in the World for re-planting and reduce the borrowings in preparation for the rainy day.

    The Sime Darby Foundation does not serve any useful purpose but just a hang-out for those who served the POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT. The Foundation should be dissolved as soon as possible.

    SIME DARBY SHOULD NOW FOCUS, FOCUS AND FOCUS ON THE MOTORCAR PROJECT AND THE WORLD OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY. CHINA, AUSTRALIAN, NEW ZEALNAD ASSETS, MALAYSIAN PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT, LIBERIA ESTATES, SOUTH PACIFIC PLANTATIONS SHOULD ALL BE SOLD.

    At its peak, Sime Darby had FAKE OFFICES IN VANCOUVER, NEW YORK AND LONDON TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT IT’S A WORLD-WIDE CORPORATION COUPLED BY EXPENSIVE ADVERTISEMENTS. The fact is Sime Darby NEVER did any real husiness apart from competing with the local folks. THIS SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED !

    Tun, Man proposes. God disposes. AFTER TWO GENERATIONS. it is good, very good, you are still around to make Sime Darby the real Flagship of Malaysian Business endeavour in light engineering, motor cars an important component to push us Malaysians to the next tier of development.

    Or else we are forever forced to talk about condoms, palm oil and petroleum which DO NOT PROVIDE THE RIGHT TYPE OF JOBS FOR THE RAKYAT AND DO NOT ASSIST THE RAKYAT TO RAISE THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING AND EARNINGS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Sime Darby boleh ! Better late than never.

    Tun

    An exceptional headline appeared in The Star this morning thus :

    ” TIME TO TEACH GOOD VALUES “.

    Kudos to the Minister of Education for this important subject which will taught in all our schools under ‘CIVICS’. An important subject which had been forgotten by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and also by the hurly-burly of urban life.

    I have noted that the young Chinese these days are brash and pushy unlike their parents. Maybe these people are from outstation and with their new relationships anything goes. The young Malays and Indians still have a modicum of manners and courtesy which exhibit their existing familial relationships at home.

    The Chinese artisans began to lose their professionalism beginning in the early 1980s which probably reflected the attempts by the MCA and its leadership to politicise the early attempts by the Malays to find a business base. They used Sime Darby as their rallying cry ! This MCA political move was actually a cover-up for its big-wigs to do big businesses, some of which failed, but a very few succeeded.

    But the whole spectrum of honesty and integrity in the work-place was left to the parents to do the needful.

    With the retirement of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad after 2003, whole phalanxes of the BN Government were seen to live in a World of their own by the Rakyat, the Malays, Chinese, Indians and all. The Rakyat was always given the impression there would be a tomorrow.

    When wanton theft and cheating of the Government’s own financial resources were exposed during the last 5 years, the discontent and unhappiness of the Rakyat grew in intensity at the collapse of Leadership and integrity of the Federal Government which translated into nothing for the Rakyat. Un-imaginable amounts of ringgits were flowing the wrong way.

    Events happened in the Government Establishment and affected the Rakyat which became demoralised.

    Presto ! Now the whole Nation looks forward to a New Era of Normality of everything. And to begin with, the Ministry of Education has become the right choice to show our young what is black or white, what is right or wrong, what is loyalty or disloyalty etc. This is where YB comment is so important to those who make Malaysia great in the future.

    In the case of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, one rotten egg spoilt the rest. The whole Government Establishment collapsed into dust on 9 May 2018.

    Let us learn from the mistakes and weaknesses of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. Of its arrogance, uncaring attitude, materialism counted, lip-service to beliefs and virtues and the list goes on. The natural good instinct of Humankind turned the tide of the bad into the good as it is now proven.

    Our YB being a keen, honest and compassionate person has rebounded adroitly from his recent faux pas which were reported in the media as follows :-

    1. To reduce the entrance standards of universities so that the rural students could enter them. But the British uplifted the standards of the rural students by placing them in hostels in towns where the good schools were. They did not lower the standards of anyone. Besides, if this was done, the academics and the undergraduates would feel violated. The rural students attain an inferiority complex.

    2. The uniforms and shoes conundrum

    3. To appoint oneself to a lesser job is like a King appointing himself to be the court jester.

    4. The appointment of a top money man from the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government must have raised many eyebrows of the cognoscenti who are aware of one of the earliest mega-deals, KIM ENG SECURITIES SINGAPORE-MAYBANK. The former was owned by the second wife of the younger brother of the late Prime Minister of Singapore.

    However, our YB is dynamic, honest, quick at learning and understanding and compassionate. He has or will rectify what is not correct. No problem.

    Finally, it pays for the YB to spend a week in Japan, India (New Delhi & Dehra Dun), Singapore and Switzerland over a year or two to study their educational curriculum and system on the spot and SELECT WHAT IS BEST FOR MALAYSIAN SCHOOLS. This saves a lot of time and headaches.

    AND DO NOT BE MISLED BY SINGAPORE’S SPIEL ON THEIR MATHEMATICS. Too much of it is as actually USELESS FOR US. And besides we are a huge country compared with them. Let those with the talent for mathematics find their own level ! Different strokes for different folks as it is said.

    I have every confidence in the administrative and leadership ability of YB.

    As the saying goes, ” TO ERR IS HUMAN, TO FORGIVE IS DIVINE.”

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Your Government Team gives us HOPE in more ways than one to make our beloved Malaysia GREAT !!

    Tun

    Another happy morning for me as I ferried my grand-daughter to her SMK party heralding the end of the school term. She is indeed very satisfied with this school and the students. No problem. No qualms.

    My eyes nearly popped out when I saw the headline from Sime Darby and one or two exceptional ones as well thus :-

    1, NSTP. ‘ SIME DARBY KEEN ON 3RD CAR PROJECT.’

    This is the best news of all from the Malaysian Business World.

    Let us not forget it took Sime Darby TWO GENERATIONS to do the right thing after it was turned into a fine British type of trading company with no risk by its Malaysian Managements since 1982 to 2010.

    My Life long wish and concept of 1972 becoming TRUE !

    This Malaysian Management did not want to let go after 2 GIGANTIC BANKRUPTCIES and the loss of billions of ringgits to the crooks who used Sime Darby as an ATM. At the final Bankruptcy of Sime Darby in 2010, the Board was stacked up with 10 Tan Sris. Believe it or not. No doubt the directors fees were gargantuan.

    It is time for Sime Darby to SELL OFF ALL THE AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND ASSETS AND THOSE LAST MINUTE CHINESE PORTS (2010) AS WELL.

    I told them to grab all the palm oil bunkering ports in China in 1982, those lazy minded fellows invested apparently in a small facility in Port Said, Egypt. They looked West instead of East. 10 Years later KLK, IOI and the Kuok Group grabbed all !

    However, Tun, it is still not too late for Sime Darby to SELL OFF ALL ITS AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND ASSETS.

    Sime Darby sponsored New Zealand’s Ocean Racing for 9 years in a country which is still the most bigoted in the World which judges could not distinguish one Chinaman from another. Sime Darby did all these things either because of the Melbourne Gold Cup, 19th Hole Golf or to keep an ex-finance director in NZ happy. The shareholders have never been happy until TODAY, Tun !

    Yes, Tun ! Sime Darby is the proper investor for the Third National Car Project.

    In fact Sime Darby should have been with the First. But from 1982 to 2018, Sime Darby was turned into a colourless, ineffective and non-contributor to the National Interest benefitting only the lackadaisical Management who were more interested in sporting events than business. THAT’S TWO GENERATIONS OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA, TUN !

    My concept of 1972 which some crooked Chinaman called me a ‘Malay bum sucker’ was to give the Malays who had only 2% of the economy a quantum leap into big business. My concept of 1972 worked thanks to the support of the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. Both understood the implication of controlling and acquiring Sime Darby by Malay interests. Hence, we have so many non-Malays and Malay rich bucks today ! No problem Tun !

    But my 1972 Concept was more esoteric than making rich bucks. It was about creating a new light engineering industry and jobs for our beloved Malaysia in the years to come.

    Yes Tun ! With the right thinking and approach in the National Interest and not in the MANAGEMENT’S INTEREST, it is possible to build Sime Darby to be a Fortune 500, a leading light of ASEAN business and of Malaysia. No problem.

    IT IS NOT TOO LATE BECAUSE IN BUSINESS THERE ARE ALWAYS OPPORTUNITIES ! I hope from now onwards you keep a close eye on Sime Darby’s proceedings, Tun. Even today, it is the BEST we have to lead your WAY !

    Those fellows in Sime Darby who now promote the 3RD CAR PROJECT should be ennobled with a Tan Sri ! Light engineering is the WAY Tun as you envisaged a long long time ago which was sabotaged by the crooked closest aides who are all in hiding now with the ill-gotten billions of ringgits and Stradivarius violins ! Even the waste from the Proton factory they walloped !

    Sime Darby should sell off all the sleeping investments like Tesco, etc which give a good return to PNB and turn all dead assets into cash AND WAIT FOR OPPORTUNITIES WHICH ARE COMING HARD AND FAST AGAIN FROM UK AND EU.
    Who knows maybe our new Sovereign friends’ Temasek can help Sime Darby to gobble up the biggest for our mutual or ASEAN benefit ? Who knows, Tun in business ?

    EXCITING TIMES ARE COMING AROUND AGAIN TUN ! We are not late if we are prepared for the opportunities to come.

    LET US NOT FORGET, BY 1974, THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO TAKE-OVER SIME DARBY. THE MALAYSIANS WERE STUCK. WITHOUT TELLING ANYONE, I WENT TO SEE THE BRILLIANT LADY LAWYER IN SINGAPORE IN FEBRUARY 1974. SHE TOLD ME SHE KNEW NOTHING WHAT HER HUSBAND DID. I KNEW SHE FOUNDED THAT PARTY WITH HER HUSBAND. I DISCUSSED THE PROS AND THE CONS OF THE IMPORTANCE OF SIME DARBY FOR SINGAPORE, MALAYSIA AND ASEAN FOR ONE WHOLE HOUR. Being very intelligent, she understood. I went to see a Singaporean banker too who said it could not be done. HOWEVER AFTER THE FALL OF VIETNAM IN APRIL 1975, IT WAS ALL SYSTEMS GO FOR THE 2 SINGAPOREAN BANKS WHO ASSISTED THE MALAYSIANS TO CONTROL SIME DARBY BY NOVEMBER 1975. This we must not forget !

    Sime Darby cost the Malaysians only RM 23 Million as the Malays had limited money in those early days of NEP. Today, ONE BRIBE IS RM 187 MILLION ! All of us, Malays, Chinese and Indians etc did not think about money money money for our pockets in those innocent days of yore !

    Our beloved Malaysia, Tun after TWO GENERATIONS has got the right investor in the form of the much abused Sime Darby which can now go places IF CAREFULLY MONITORED.

    As you are aware, the motorcar industry in the West is both hit by the Trade Wars and the Brexit.

    THESE ARE OPPORTUNITIES FOR MALAYSIA AND SIME DARBY TOO. With your guidance and attention, our beloved Malaysia can be a MAJOR CAR MANUFACTURING CENTRE FOR ASEAN/ASIA/WORLD WITH JOBS FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS AND ANCILLARY BUSINESSES TOO.

    FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS IS THE KEY !

    Sime Darby should now sell off all the useless playthings of the previous Management and build up the cash reserve. AS THE SAYING GOES, ‘ THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS, Tun !’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! SIME DARBY BOLEH TUN !

    Tun

    We are now witnessing the agonies of Britain making attempts to withdraw easily and gracefully from the EU everyday for the past one and a half years. Let this be a lesson to all in Malaysia.

    Britain was alleged to have joined the EU due to US pressure in 1972 without thinking of the future, the historical aspects and her own cultural legacy and heritage.

    The little I know about them, I was aghast that Britain took such a gigantic step into the unknown in 1972 and abandoned the Commonwealth. Literally, Britain fought many wars on the European Continent right up to the 20th Century. This was her political and historical European baggage she had to bear and be aware ! Obviously greed for more business was one of the factors in favour of the EU.. Now the birds have come h9me to roost.

    And the Brexit pay-back or pay-off is not only expensive but difficult. Then one may ask why it was so easy to get married to the EU and so difficult to divorce ? One must again ask the question why there was no escape clause to ease the difficulties of a divorce which now happens after 46 years of marriage ?

    Let this Brexit and also the 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore be a good lesson to our Governments of the day, Tun ! This should be a subject of study not only in schools but also in our Ministry of Foreign Affairs ! Easy to sign on the dotted line BUT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO WITHDRAW IN THE FUTURE ! No escape Clause at all !

    Especially, when our Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was embedded by dubious types who were the lead negotiators daring enough to shout in a NST headline after her retirement, ‘ MALAYSIA MUST SIGN THE TPPA.’ We know why as it is alleged that her nearest and dearest is the Chief Correspondent in Kuala Lumpur of the Singapore Business Times. Journalists are the front-lines of information the World over. Myanmar, Egypt, Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Russia do not like them.

    Or is there such a phrase, ‘ A stitch in time saves nine.’

    Malaysia Boleh as always Tun ! Let the 1962 Water Agreement and the agonies of Britain over the Brexit be a good lesson for our beloved Malaysia to learn and to avoid. Beware of Greeks bearing gifts, Tun !

  44. mubarakchan Nov 15,2018 8:13 PM

    Yun

    How many Malaysians know that the Malays are just as capable and good as other peoples ?

    The events leading up to 9 May 2018 and thereafter proved that this is so. They do not have to learn anything from anybody.

    All the ingredients of the make-up of a Normal and Good people, the Malays were/are there, otherwise we and our beloved Malaysia would not have come so far and achieved great things since 1957.

    As you are aware, Tun, we must not have short memories. This is why holistic history of our beloved Malaysia will play an important part in the development and shaping Malaysia to be one of the Greats which I have mentioned before many a-time.

    The ravages of Colonialism, the immaturity of our political development and poor or absent political leadership by UMNO during 2004 to 2018 finally broke the bonds of suppression imposed on the Rakyat by using all sorts of devices to cover-up the Great Rape of our beloved Malaysia. We are now free. Thanks to your brilliance and courage leading up to 9 May 2018 and beyond. This is now INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED !

    How many Malaysians are aware that back to centuries ago if the Sultans were recalcitrant, would there be a Malaysia like this today ?

    We must take our hats off to them for willing to accept the newcomers who could contribute in kind for mutual benefit. That was long long ago. Centuries ago.

    Fast trek to the 20th Century of recent memory. The Malays actually had full POWER in their hands via the Constitution.

    Despite their handicaps, like on 13 May 1869, their share of the Malaysian economy was only 2% after 12 years of Merdeka. Yet, the Great Malay Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and his team could fashion the NEP to create a level playing field for all. The Malays were not found wanting as regards their political capability here.

    With Tun Abdul Razak’s untimely demise, Tun Hussein Onn, a Great Prime Minister who respected the Laws to the fullest, played an important role too by giving time and space for the NEP to take root. And of course, the future ATM for crooks, Sime Darby came into hand to provide the Malays their first big business conglomerate – a major piece of jigsaw puzzle which fitted in at the right moment !

    The go-go years of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad CREATED THE MALAY MIDDLE-INCOME GROUP FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME which now numbers at least 9 million souls who clap hands with the non-Malays, the providers of goods and services. The combined Middle Income Groups of Malays, Chinese, Indians and others maybe as many as 17 millions. This is the natural ballast of Malaysia – the key stabilizing factor of a Nation. And the Malays are right there in majority leading the way.

    But with bad leadership, the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government wiped out its own elites until only one aged 40 from Christ’s ( College ) is left when there should be by right and progress, echelons of Malay elites. All these capable fellows were there all stacked up to a man but due to poor Leadership, the whole edifice crumbled into dust.

    JUST ONE BAD EGG CAN SPOIL THE REST, TUN !

    And this has nothing to do with one’s capability or not. It is just common garden GREED AND ABSENT LEADERSHIP which good leadership went out of the window during 2004 to 2018. Imagine, Tun, a Corrupted and Uncaring Government Establishment without LEADERSHIP ! These facts are proven every day by the events in the Courts.

    YES ! I am of the opinion that the Malays do not need to learn from anyone from the proven historical records but just a NORMAL LEADER AND A NORMAL LIFE-STYLE, THE MALAYS WILL GO PLACES. It is the good governance and GOOD EDUCATION which is important in our Malaysian society because without Malay elites, the non-Malays cannot move and progress as embodied in our Constitution. All will suffer like what happened recently, 2004-2018. With no Leadership, the Rakyat’s money flowed the wrong way into the wrong pockets.

    Hence, a good Malay Leader like our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is immediately RECOGNISED BY THE WORLD AT LARGE as a Leader and not someone whom they pay lip-service to and pretend to play golf with or huddle in very private retreats.

    THE MALAYS HAVE NOTHING TO LEARN FROM ANYONE TUN.

    What we all Malaysians need is a constant availability of Malay Leaders and elites who can serve Normally like anyone else and NOT TAKEN OVER BY GREED AND POWER because in our country, the Role Model begins at the top of the Power Pyramid, the apex !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! The Malays are already there. No need to learn from anyone but to learn from the World at large for progress and development like anyone else. We will all be there, Tun.

  45. mubarakchan Nov 15,2018 10:50 AM

    Tun

    Welcome home to our beautiful and peaceful beloved Malaysia, the one and only in this World of ours which we all only pass through once in a Lifetime !

    You and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah did not come back as conquering heroes of the Republic of Singapore but as one of its Finest. This is the nub and the rub.

    The recognition of the good works of both from a long journey of nearly 100 years. We stand proud, strong and united with you.

    Tun, we Malaysians stand to benefit the most from your true sacrifice and devotion without a peer because of your Second Coming which through your brilliance and courage has put our beloved Malaysia onto the World’s pedestal as one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    This pedestal should launch our beloved Malaysia upwards towards the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, and Good Governance Japan. These are well-established top-class States which were developed by its own citizens over time in the face of all sorts of vicissitudes both natural and unnatural. What better examples for another Nation to emulate than these 3 exemplary Nation ?

    How many of us Malaysians including your good-self Tun realise that with your superb leadership and the Will and Spirit of our beloved Malaysia in your hands has the POWER to put us onto the 2nd step of 1,000 lei journey to SUCCESS ?

    I am not talking about the mundane and normal duties of a Prime Minister who is now burdened with the task of cleaning out the Augean Stables leftover by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which corrupted the whole Government Establishment – worst than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome but the POWER to set our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat right, step by step, slowly but surely towards the WAYS and MEANS of the Greats like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    For starters, Switzerland took 800 years from day one of her Confederaton to be where she is today. Democratic India 5,000 years and Japan 3,000 ! So, Tun, with your guidance of our momentous March towards and upwards to be like the Greats, we have plenty of time !

    After grappling with the New Young and Incorruptible Government to establish a NORMAL stance as regards its duties and responsibilities and getting rid of all the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government rubbish, sorry to say, you have the very important and unenviable task to accomplish which is to set our beloved Malaysia on the correct journey to achieve something like these 3 Greats but with our unique Malaysian bent – to be established as UNITED SOCIETIIES within the framework of Sovereignty and National Interest.

    I believe the first step should be a proper curriculum which is not LOP-SIDED in the interest of all concerned. Like how many Malaysians know that as at May 13 1969, the British owned 70% of the best assets of Malaysia, the Chinese 25%, the majority was just earning a living and the Malays 2% ?

    Whatever the action, each move should be slow and steady without upsetting the sensitivities and emotions of other fellow citizens. This must be a precept which should be engraved in stone by you, Tun !

    With a proper normal functioning New Young and Incorruptible Government and our DSAI by your side, the future of our beloved Malaysia which in time, 50 years ? 100 years ? 1000 years or more ? like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan will hold sway firmly along the narrow line of no return but only forwards to success and happiness. THE CREATION OF ASIA’S VERY OWN EQUIVALENT OF SWITZERLAND WHICH IS OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA through your LEADERSHIP with the Rakyat’s full support !

    This POWER to do everlasting good is now in your hands, Tun – to shape the DESTINY of a Nation to be Great and to do Good Things for the World.

    THIS IS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THE INTELLECTUAL CAPABILITY OF A HUMAN MIND, TUN !

    Away with the decadence and corrupt practices like collecting 10,000 Rolex and hiding them under a bed ! We are good and normal Malaysians, MALAYS, CHINESE, INDIANS, KADAZANS, IBANS AND ALL. We have the People, the Natural Resources and the Space to help ourselves by doing good things which will give us a chance to help others. WHAT IS BETTER THAN THIS TUN ? And History is the Finest Arbiter of the Truth, Tun !

    It was the politicising of everything in our beloved Malaysia in recent years which put a brake on the development of our human and natural resources, 2004 to 2018.

    This was the price to pay, Tun before the Rakyat saw the light of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and coupled with your brilliance and courage, Tun – Presto ! We the Rakyat found ourselves after 9 May 2018 as ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    NO MORE CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES WHO COLLECT BANKS AND STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS, NO MORE KINGS WHO APPOINT THEMSELVES AS COURT JESTERS. NO MORE APPOINTING HIGH RANKING MINISTERS OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT TO REPRESENT THE NEW YOUNG INCORRUPTIBLE PH GOVERNMENT TO SMEAR ITS OWN FACE !

    Normal practices in Normal Administration of Normal Government Policies which are Fair and Just to rule over the Rakyat will create an everlasting Nation with an eternal Life. During 2004 to 2018, I thought our beloved Malaysia ‘dieded’ as we Malaysians say ! When we were ruled by fellow who did not know whether they were coming or going !

    THIS FASHIONING OF A NATION NOW LYING HAPLESS BECAUSE OF THE RAPINE YEARS (2004 to 2018) OF A CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT IS NOW IN YOUR CAPABLE HANDS TUN with the good assistance of DSAI and all others concerned !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We now have great hopes for the Golden Future of our beloved Malaysia to come ! Man proposes. God disposes.

  46. mubarakchan Nov 14,2018 1:29 PM

    Tun

    It was good to see you have an excellent relationship with President Putin of Russia. For our beloved Malaysia to have a good relationship with all underlines our Foreign Policy of being friends with all, but enemy to none. Good things will appear in time and in unexpected events to come.

    I like the headline in The Star this morning, thus :-

    ‘ THE LHDN WILL COME AFTER YOU.’ This is good for all the hard-working and honest Rakyat but sends a shiver down the spines of the crooks.
    Here are 2 huge significant cases which the LHDN might have overlooked.

    1. A Chinese promoter organised a syndicate to rig the shares of Chinese owned small listed companies for over 10 years from around 2000. His modus operandi is to collude with the Chinese substantial owners with the spiel that he could get back their returns in months instead of in years or never, if they would collude with his syndicate.

    He specialised in companies with 5 sen par share so that by rigging it up to 15 sen or 20 sen, he could profit by over 100% soon after the listing of the new shares. He succeeded in this share-rigging scam as a professional who profited without TAX SERIALLY from 2000 onwards to 2018. This was his INCOME TAXABLE profession by doing it serially for over 8 times with at least 8 listed companies and their substantial share-owners.

    From 2000 to 2018, he and his colluders accrued in UNTAXED PROFITS from this serial share rigging scam which broke all the Laws, OF MORE THAN RM 1 BILLIONS ! The LHDN is aware of this SERIAL SHARE-RIGGING SCAM SINCE 2016 !

    2. However, the cheating by an organised syndicate to collect PALM OIL SLUDGE FROM FELDA, LTAT, SIME DARBY, GLC PLANTATIONS IS EVEN BIGGER WHICH BEGAN AFTER TUN’S RETIREMENT IN 2003.

    It was organised from the top.

    The palm oil sludge is collected daily from the oil palm mills owned by the aforementioned companies with the public and the Government as the stakeholders. Millions of ringgits of palm oil sludge are collected each day by the collectors from 2004 to 2018. This is alleged in the oil palm industry as common knowledge. The cash is paid by the collectors to an outside source.

    Thus billions of ringgits in cash has not been TAXED because the Syndicate was organised from the top.

    This black cash should be white cash belonging to the ultimate stakeholders, the public and the Government. Yet, this huge CASH HOARD is siphoned off every day since 2004 to 2018.

    A HUGE SOURCE OF INCOME DERIVED FROM THE PALM OIL SLUDGE STOLEN BY THE ORGANISED SYNDICATE, WHICH RIGHTFULLY BELONGS TO THE PUBLIC AND THE GOVERNMENT. Billions of ringgits in cash are sloshing somewhere sometime. ANOTHER UNTAXED INCOME FOR THE LHDN !

    For starters, these two CHEATING CASES OF THEFT OF THE RAKYAT’S WEALTH IN BROAD DAYLIGHT SHOULD BE DEALT WITH BY NOT ONLY THE LHDN BUT ALSO BY THE SECURITIES COMMISSION, THE MACC, THE BURSA AND THE PDRM. The Rakyat is fed-up with all these thefts openly conducted in broad daylight without fear by the crooks concerned.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Malaysia must retrieve all the billions of ringgits stolen from the Rakyat by these crooks, OPENLY !

  47. mubarakchan Nov 13,2018 10:22 PM

    Tun,

    It was a good beginning when you urged the young to be creative, innovative and have a vision. And you urged the talented Malaysians who are at present abroad to return to Malaysia as there is a New Era for them. And in the same line of thought, these talented Malaysian have established their roots overseas with families and all.

    Talented Malaysians in the 1960s returned to Malaysian, the whole lot of them. They were in most professions like surgery, paediatrics, at the Institute of Medical Research (IMR) and so on.

    After the May 13 1969 riots, these highly qualified professionals returned to their alma maters.

    The second wave of emigrants came in the early 1980s when it was alleged that Government Policies will not be to their liking. The people in this group were not as qualified as the first.

    I know of one complete family of many related families left for Melbourne, Australia.

    But by the early 1990s, when stories of the many millionaires and their riches reached the shores of distant lands, there were regrets expressed.

    But in the 21st Century, many families were making plans to emigrate whenever possible which gave rise to all sorts of malfeasances to make a pile and abscond. Like our little fat boy ! His intentions are very clear from the beginning. By 2017-18, applicants for overseas became a flood.

    On the other side of the coin, I know of two Malaysian Chinese doctors who spent lifetimes practising in Vancouver and Hong Kong. Both returned. One to Pulau Pinang and the other to TTDI, Kuala Lumpur. The latter was the ex-husband of the founder of Kim Eng Securities Singapore !

    Then finally, we have the story of the brilliant Muslim Indian graduate from the London School of Economics who joined one of the BN Government’s hi-tech units. He worked out the next year’s Budget would be around RM 5 Million but his Boss told him to increase it up to RM 10 Million. He was very upset and consulted his father who advised him to do as he was told. Thereafter, he returned to London.

    And I keep hearing stories of peer pressure on the newly returned professionals who were up to the mark soon after their return. But due to peer pressure they descended down to the same level of workmanship as the peers.

    Your call for our talented Malaysians to return is apt and timely. But will these professionals return ?

    I believe this has to do a lot with politics and Malaysia’s security. And if the years to come if Malaysia is really on the trek up towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan, who will not return from places in the West which are now full of uncertainty and violence ?

    Hence, my constant call to fix our future objectives on those icons previously mentioned.

    The fact is our beloved Malaysia has already have in place good schools, hospitals, colleges, and so on. It is the security, the social amenities and politics which need to be improved to comparable World standards. Security could be difficult because we have in our midst all sorts of people from un-familiar places. But whatever it is, I am confident the New Young and Incorruptible Government will the handle the situation normally in its stride, given time. And time is of the essence !

    Malaysia Boleh as always ! Malaysia Boleh are the Golden words pointing towards our future, Tun ! With the Will, the Hard-work and the Confidence, we will all be there amongst the Greats.

  48. mubarakchan Nov 13,2018 5:25 PM

    Tun

    My very best congratulations to you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah for being bestowed the distinguished awards by your finest Alma Mater, Asia’s No 1, the National University of Singapore today.

    A unique honour for a distinguished family couple who achieved much in a journey of nearly 100 years. A Malaysian Malay couple too.

    This occasion must surely be the first in the World. Your well wishers must have been filled with emotions by recalling the momentous events which made up your successful historical past despite in recent times when naysayers thought they had the field to themselves by pouring tons of vitriol on you.

    Your recent brilliant and courageous stance put all these NAYSAYERS TO BE YEASAYERS ! Who can beat this achievement alone, Tun ? Who else but our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ?

    We first met in your house on a hill in Petaling Jaya at a Hari Raya Open House. Both of you came up to me and asked, ‘ Who are you ?’ There was a Chinese Civil Servant by your side. I first met Tun Dr Siti Hasmah in the bedroom of Tun Ismail Mohd. Ali the Sunday morning after he fell ill at a function held by the Administrative Training Centre. I was in attendance. Thereafter, I came every year for the Hari Raya Open House held at your residence on the hill at Kenny Hill or Bukit Tunku until you became the Prime Minister. From then on, the well-wishers came in their thousands.

    And it was not too long ago, when naysayers poured tons of vitriol on you, and lo and behold ! Your brilliance and courage turned these NAY-SAYERS INTO YEA-SAYERS ! I suppose one has to study medicine at Asia’s No 1 the National University of Singapore to achieve this ! Be a brilliant and courageous doctor and successful politician to boot.

    But today, a Minister in the New Young and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great, struck a few notes in the headlines probably he was infected with the new POWER which was temporarily bestowed on him, thus :-

    1. To reduce the entrance standards of the universities so that the rural students may enter them. Apparently, he was not aware that the British set up hostels in towns for the Malay students who lived in the outlying areas to up-grade their skills and knowledge. Most of them became very successful. This Policy was continued by the BN Government in the years to come. By reducing the entrance requirements, the universities’ standards are lowered, the incumbent academics and undergraduates feel violated and the rural students get an inferiority complex ! A political solution is not the answer to an academic problem

    2. The uniforms and shoes conundrum !

    3. The appointment of oneself, the Minister to be the Chancellor of IIU is like the King appointing himself to be the jester !

    4. The Minister probably were not aware that Life has many parts. He appointed a high ranking Minister of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which was turfed out in disgrace, as the Chancellor of another university. HE HAS OBVIOUSLY NOT HEARD OF KIM ENG SECURITIES SINGAPRE AND MAYBANK !

    All these demerits happened within 6 months concerning a good, honest and sincere person who is a Minister of Education on matters which did not concern EDUCATION !

    As I said many times before, BEWARE, Ministers of the seductions, the flatteries and the what-have-you, weakness of the flesh and the soft under belly because you all live in a different World of Power. Seductress and flatterers will come by the thousands. Vide. Solar panels. How to maintain a proper stance ? Think and work normally, serve the people and your family. You will be alright. Don’t abuse Power and ever think of Money, Money, Money. We all will be there with the Greats Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, Good Governance Japan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Honest mistakes are revealed OPENLY. Only crooks hide their crooked acts !

  49. mubarakchan Nov 10,2018 11:56 PM

    Tun

    Congratulations in advance on your forthcoming distinguished honorary Award by the National University of Singapore which Ranks No 1 in Asia on Tuesday 13 November 2018.

    Finally, the Republic of Singapore recognises the only Malaysian who deserves this Award the most.

    For decades, I observed lesser souls from the Malaysian Civil Service were promptly awarded LLDs on their retirement. And yet young souls, the young UMNO aspirants were invited to speak at the ISEAS Forum following which a glowing report on their brilliant achievements would be published on the following morning in the Straits Times. Vide Straits Times Library for the record of who and who. No doubt these were the brain-washed digits embedded in Kuala Lumpur. But Man proposes. God disposes.

    This is an auspicious time in the 21st Century for both countries to leave the baggage of the 20th Century behind. For starters, Malaysia and her Governments did no harm to anyone. If at all, there were many times because of our hospitality, friendliness and courtesy were taken time and time again to the cleaners by those who were cunning but not smart. They got their sums wrong ! We survived. Man proposes. God disposes.

    The problem with Singapore is that after the highest profile was ever created by Man, nothing happened in the 21st Century thereafter. The white rabbits ran out of stock from the proverbial hat !

    However, in this World Community of Humankind, normality will return as the Norm in time and in place. In other words, after a flight of fancy by Singapore, Malaysia and Singapore are on the same plane again and talk normally again without any hint of special relationship but only based on Sovereignty and National Interest. This is what it should be.

    I an extremely hopeful of the forthcoming relationship between Malaysia and Singapore.

    The ingredients for a mutual socio-economic benefit for both are in the cards. And in reality, both countries are geographically part of one another.

    This nexus is the centre of an important and dynamic Region of the World, ASEAN. It is good the cudgels of leadership be taken up immediately without delay because if we look around the World, Malaysia and Singapore fits like a T if Singapore views all with equal Sovereignty and National Interest.

    And a people’s hospitality, friendliness and courtesy should not be taken as stupidity and meekness.

    And because of the brilliance and courage of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia, at the end of the day, is one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. Malaysia stands astride 1,200 miles from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea at a strategic geo-political location which is one of the most important in the World.

    Not only that Malaysia is a land of 3 main ancient civilizations and others, a stable democratic Government and bountiful of natural resources.

    AND OUR FOREIGN POLICY IS FRIEND TO ALL, ENEMY TO NONE ! We are the Asian Switzerland in the making. Thanks to the Leadership of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his New Young and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great. We all will be there.

    My congratulations to the Republic of Singapore as well in finally recognising the true worth of a person who spent a Life time in serving his country Malaysia and her Rakyat with GREAT SUCCESS according to the highest levels of practice be it medicine or politics !.

    And the IMPORTANCE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS ONE OF SINGAPORE’S FINEST BEING A BRILLIANT DOCTOR TRAINED AT THE FAMOUS KING EDWARD VII MEDICAL COLLEGE, SINGAPORE ( Now the NUS ) It’s a small World, folks !

    My crystal ball tells be that after so many decades of relative negativity, both countries Malaysia and Singapore will enter a new and dynamic Era of mutual benefit arising from the pooling of all their wherewithal and more for the good of our future generations. And we should behave like Normal Humankind as the important and vital Nexus of ASEAN if not Asia or the World.

    Malaysia Boleh as always ! The journey of a thousand lei begins with the first step, Tun !

    Tun

    The mornings these days are dull and wet as the north-east monsoon is upon us. But I am just as happy with the knowledge that once again our beloved Malaysia has reverted back to normal under a New Young and Incorruptible Government which practices Normal Administrative Policies.

    The headlines do not seem to be of note anymore as the topics based on the ex-PM and his spouse were reported to either attend Court or questioned in lengthy sessions by the MACC.

    Taking the cue from you about history and ethics, I think something on ethics, standards, filial piety, probity, propriety, honesty, and other human virtues would be interesting in our Malaysian World which lost these virtues by the whole of the Government Establishment from 2004 to 2018. A period which was infamously dubbed as ‘Cash is King’ ! And the Prime Minister’s residence was turned into a night club with all things good or bad flowing !

    At the end of the day on 9 May 2018, the whole edifice of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government came crashing down.

    When we were young, Tun, the children were herded, marshalled and regimented here and there without much ado. Without much effort, we found ourselves as part of the tertiary education system.

    And in this system, the medics were in a curriculum which made sure they worked from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Saturday. The homework made sure the Sundays were occupied as well. And that was over 5 years of a proper course at the famous King Edward VII Medical College Singapore. I went to one which turned its clinical students into trolley attendants even during exams. We were told that it was good for training in ethics, discipline, punctuality and physical fitness. We had to obtain bottles of blood for the Ops as well. The hospital save a lot by turning medics into porters !

    In no time at all, we were doing our houseman-ship to qualify for the requisite licence which governs ethics, standards, propriety, honesty etc to launch us on our way as professionals earning an honest living.

    My first experiences came as a houseman when I encountered an accusation by a chronic TB patient that I was planning to kill him. This patient was housed in Ward 13 and I was the person in charge of Ward 14. Every day I had to walk past him in Ward 13. I knew he was under anti-TB drugs like isoniazid and PAS which affected his mentality over 1 year treatment. The Superintendent with an English sounding name who should have known better reported me to the Minister of Health Ong Yoke Lin. Of course, I got a clean slate. The Superintendent forgot ethics, propriety etc. in his keenness to save guard his Civil Service. position.

    Not only that, when I requested a testimonial from him, he gave me one with just one sentence. My colleague who never turned up for emergencies got a 2 page testimonial from him. I smiled as I got a satisfying testimonial from the finest physician at the time in England, Dr Douthwaite ! I did not complain. I did not explain !

    One fine day, around lunch time, a burly Eurasian man turned up at the Emergency Clinic with his beautiful daughter. I forgot myself and sent her straight to the Ops without disrobing her to examine her with a nurse by my side being a pukka gentleman. My Registrar and the rest of the team laughed at me thereafter who should have failed in an exam. She did not fall into a drain to cause blood to flow out between her thighs as was reported by her burly father but was with her boyfriend the previous night ! I should have practised ethics, standards, honesty, propriety etc. Tun. I failed because my emotions overcame me !

    On another occasion about lunchtime, (I have never understood why such cases either came in at lunch time or mid night). a Chinese cookie for the Principal of the Pudu English Girls School was trolleyed into Ops because his lower vitals were all cut up by his enraged wife with a rusty knife or scissors. In no time at all with an empty stomach, I dutifully, ethically keeping to the standards attempting to restore his vital manhood. It was a desolate battle scene of gore, blood and smell before lunch, Tun ! I can still recall this today.

    One evening, a huge mountain of a Eurasian man turned up in a coma. I worked on him for as long as I could. He died. His son just as burly came up to me and expressed his gratefulness even though I failed. Tears flowed freely down my face, This made my day and my career.

    Without any explanation, I was soon managing my family estate which spent RM 250,000 annually for replanting. A handsome sum in those days when a Mercedes only cost RM 12,000. I never thought of short-changing my brothers otherwise I would not be around in our beloved Malaysia today but in Australia.

    In 1966, with associates I took control of a listed company in which the Chairman and the Directors had a ‘mess’ along Jalan Bukit Bintang and were having a gala time of wine women and song. I managed to collect 70% shareholders support from around the Peninsula. I told them what the Chairman was doing with their money. To a man, they all told me,’ As long as we get 1% dividend annually we are happy, We understand the Chairman and his associates need to relax because they worked very hard for us.’ From then on, it was clear to me that it was quite easy to cheat Malaysian shareholders. This had happened right up to 2018 !

    Working to salvage the biggest bankruptcy corporation without money fron the MIDF Consortium in the 1970s, Folex Industries Berhad now known as Sri Hartamas, the staff were making all sorts of signals to do negative things especially the unused quota of 10 Million lbs of cotton yarn which I dutifully returned to the Ministry of Finance for 9 years. I could only used about 3-4 Million lbs every year.

    Once I caught the overseas suppliers of yarn short when I could assess a shortage of the cotton yarn was looming. They requested me to go out to the sea in Singapore in a yacht with them amongst other offers. I told them Folex will never sue them to retrieve the millions of ringgits but they should repay whatever they could. Folex received what was owed to it from all but not in full from the losers. I never sue my debtors.

    I heard from my friends that Sime Darby sold a Nova Scotia cheaply to a MCA fellow a year after the event. As a Director of Consolidated Plantations, I was duty bound to ask the Management the reason why this matter was not presented to the Board. I was told since the amount of the sale was only RM 4 Million which was less than 2% of the total assets of Consolidated Plantations, there was no necessity to inform the Board. Like this, they could have sold all the assets without informing the Board !

    However, this valuable property which was by the new North-South Highway Rawang was first shelved in a listed company which was then shuffled up to RM 88 Million bought by Talam and Perangsaan Selangor. This beautiful property was soon turned into a tropical slum known as Bukit Beruntong by a Tan Sri Dato Seri Dr JP who claimed his father was a lorry driver from Gopeng, Perak ! My father was a dish-washer in the kitchen of Towkay Loke Yew’s kongsi !

    I have such a long list of breaches of ethics, etc that this might never end and become boring. However, here is another interesting episode on human greed and weakness in daily life.

    One morning, my phone rang. The CEO of Cycle & Carriage Ltd Singapore was on the line. He requested my permission thus,’ There is an offer of a yacht which is quite cheap. The other trading houses like Boustead has one too which is used to entertain our clients.’ I replied ‘ Tommy, I am not into yachts. But if the other Directors agree, I have no objection.’ Thereafter, I did not hear from Tommy anymore.

    However, soon after this incident, I was lounging by the side of the Star Ferry Tsim-sha-tsui. A huge yacht docked by me. Two young expat families with butlers and matrons dis-embarked with tables, bags and hampers. And at the back of this huge yacht was emblazoned in large lettering, ‘SIME DARBY’. I returned to KL and asked the Management why the Board was not informed about this yacht. The reply was that everyone has a yacht in Hong Kong and the yacht was to keep the expats happy. In my mind, I thought why the Management did not make the Directors of Sime Darby and its shareholders happy too ?

    Tun. as we are all aware in this day and age the rampant greed and weakness of the flesh, 2004 to 2018, in our beloved Malaysia knew no bounds. You were correct that history which recorded not only our mistakes but also our good behaviour as exemplified by the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Huseein Onn and your good-self are super role models for all the Rakyat and aspiring leaders to follow. This we must never forget. And with the right mind-set like now, together we will build a great Nation, Malaysia.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! History is the finest arbiter of Humankind and the Truth.

    A wet and cool morning which turned out to full of sunshine white clouds and blue sky.

    Another wonderful and classic day for us Malaysians. I ferried my grand-daughter to her now much loved SMK. As expected, not many of her fellow students turned up because the final exams for the year have ended last week which was followed by the joyous Deepavali Festival two days ago. What a wonderful mix of all sorts of cultural activities in our beloved Malaysia !

    Talking about Deepavali, as all our attention is riveted on your audacious and fruitful Look East Policy, we should not forget whichever Policy we uphold is still backed up by our traditional Policy of friends to all, enemy to none.

    It is because of your constant and steadfast refrain on your thinking in the National Interest within the limits of our country’s Sovereignty that the World and Malaysians look upon you as a leading Statesman of the day. With our Foreign Policy which becomes more and more engraved in stone as time goes by, from our view of the World, all countries look great and friendly to us.

    How many of us are aware India has one of the best education system in the World ?

    Not much is known about India which is seldom publicise ?

    The Indian System produced many famous scholars and Nobel Prize Laureates since the 19th Century. Laureates like Satya Sen who is welcomed by the highest academic centres of excellence on both sides of the Pond.

    It pays for our Minister of Education to visit India’s education establishments especially those based in New Delhi up to the Dehra Dun plateau by the foot-hills of the high Himalayas. A Silicon Valley of Education of sorts for India’s future, progress and wealth based on her younger generations.

    But this New Delhi-Dehra Dun-Mussoorie Nexus was developed from what the British established way back in the 19th Century. Mumbai and Calcutta are renowned academic establishment as well.

    Since Independence in 1947, India in her wisdom kept on improving the quality and facilities which were in this Nexus without any political hindrance or disturbance. India built up her elites this way.

    To this very day, quietly and successfully India as the largest democratic country in the World can proudly march upwards with these English speaking elites in step with other great Nations. This is long term planning for you and me, Tun.

    The English language was not only preserved but enhanced for the overall interest of Mother India which has now 350 million English speaking Indians to go places and show paces in North America especially.

    It is good with a proper Foreign Policy, Malaysia and Malaysians can see the World in comparison with their own. As I always believe that visiting other countries with one’s eyes open to see but not to look, is the best education for all. The best time to visit India is in Spring or Autumn. The huge myriad of flora and fauna and the immense diversity of her population mixing, living in peace and harmony will surprise anyone.

    To many Malaysians who were educated in India’s tertiary system, what I mentioned is not new.

    In fact more Malaysians should visit and study in India with a political socio-economic system somewhat like Malaysia’s. We are the two most successful Asian democracies, Tun.

    Lest we forget ! Malaysia’s new found democratic status was saved by your brilliance and courage Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We will all be there with the New Young Incorruptible Government of the old and the new, the good and the great !

    When the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government lost its bearings as regards our Foreign Policy, the whole country was in a turmoil. There was no redress or awareness of what really happened which caused its free-fall and down-fall. The lack of understanding of the ways and means of Power in relation to our beloved Malaysia’s wherewithal and strategic geo-political stance only go to show that the Leadership was not qualified and unfit between 2003 and 2018.

    Their ineptness and a weakness not only for fun and games but the penchant to line their pockets at the Rakyat’s expense are the horror stories of everything which is abominable in any civilization.

    Malaysia succeeded on her own right up to October 2003 and then the weakness of the flesh and the soft underbelly took hold of those relevant authorities from top to bottom.

    Our Foreign Policy was quickly exploited by the shrewd and inscrutable. It became lop-sided and not friends to all and sundry of the World.

    From now onwards, stupid policies based on abang-adek, 5 eyes, very private retreats and super hot relationships should be discarded once and for all.

    Let our beloved Malaysia grow up with SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST which befit it standing and not be fudged by shrewd and inscrutable types with a huge knife behind their backs !

    Our beloved Malaysia was nearly delivered lock stock and barrel to be a slave Colony of a one-street town with only 900,000 male Chinese between aged 21 to 50. And those fellows responsible were very fond of the ‘K’ word. Vide. Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011

    IMAGINE A COUNTRY OF 31 MILLION STRONG, BOUNTIFUL OF NATURAL RESOURCES, AND STANDS ASTRIDE THE WORLD’S MOST IMPORTANT CHOKE-POINT WHICH STRETCHES 1,200 MILES FROM THE ANDAMAN SEA TO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, meekly submitted (without a fight) to something which is nothing via the TPPA/CPTPP by the stroke of a pen. What more can anyone say about such stupidity ? By people who were very fond of the ‘K’ word !

    Besides through your brilliance and courage of a LIFETIME, overnight our beloved Malaysia became one of the four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    This is the WAY to go Tun ! YOUR WAY IN THE FORMULATION OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS FRIENDS TO ALL, ENEMY OF NONE !

    A kind of Asian Switzerland in the making for us Tun.

    During World War II, Hitler’s Germany did not subdue the Swiss even though they were neighbours. The Swiss being Germans never died for Hitler.

    Therefore it makes sense to invite all to invest in Malaysia like the Shinkansen for Malaysia and Singapore which will be a showcase of our neutral Foreign Policy. YOUR WAY, a wise and sensible WAY, Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! The German Swiss never died for Hitler of Germany in World War II.

    Your emphasis on the Look East Policy for Malaysia is absolutely correct given Malaysia’s diverse background in terms of everything.

    We cannot and should not be biased by leaning on one single country alone.

    Therefore, your emphasis on your Look East Policy is dot on the spot.

    Since 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia became overnight and thanks to your brilliant and courageous efforts, one of the four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia.

    Not only that Malaysia is the most important of the four countries in strategic geo-political terms as it stands astride an important choke point which stretches from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea, a distance of 1,200 miles.

    Not only that Malaysia has one of the most democratic governments in the World with peoples from 3 ancient civilizations and others, bountiful natural resources and a superb Society which got rid of it previous corrupt BN Government by democratic means. And the peoples speak Malay, Mandarin, Tamil and English. It is good to learn Japanese too who are actually more attuned to us in political terms.

    Many Japanese universities should be established in Malaysia given the ample building facilities and infra-structures available.

    Their businesses were strongly represented here from 1960s to 2003.

    As a major World economy Japan should never be left out or reduced in influence in the Malaysian Economy which should embrace all as a friend to all. Neutrality will help us to go places. Not exclusivity will hurt us.

    WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT, MALAYSIA IS ASIA’S VERY OWN SWITZERLAND IN THE MAKING, Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Whether we like it or not, Malaysia is Asia’s very own Switzerland in the making ! The World will want it so !

    Your Innovative, Creative and Visionary approach to the Japanese investors and other foreign investors to come to Malaysia is timely.

    As you are aware Malaysia is a haven from Trade Wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods etc.

    An environment which is conducive to establish factories and townships in support.

    Malaysia now has a New Young and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great. All very keen to go places and show paces.

    Which country in the World has been rejuvenated like this through proper democratic means ?

    Malaysia must now offer its best foot forward in terms of everything to attract the FDI and Japan which needs a safe-haven for its industrial production chain. Malaysia can provide all essential facilities and guarantee freedom and a safe environment to do business at the lowest cost on par with international standards.

    Not only that, Japanese made goods for Japan could be flown back direct without hindrance. This is the new Way to go Tun. YOUR WAY. Like this mutual benefits are assured. No hang-overs or hang-ups

    There are lots of capacity in our FTZs, parts of the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak. Your new approach to the Japanese and their establishment of factories in new townships or FTZs is timely. Where else but Malaysia Tun ?

    Now, Malaysia must push hard on this attractive and beneficial investments to the Japanese at this juncture which will take off rapidly given the circumstances. Time is of the essence before other copycats appear.

    Another First for you, Tun ! We must bring part of the Japanese factory supply chain into Malaysia free from weather disturbance for a generation or more. Your Vision 2020 achieved as planned.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    There is nothing more significant than the Award of the Grand Cordon of the Golden Pawlonia to you by His Royal Majesty of Japan this morning.

    This unique Award recognises a Life-time of dedication, love and compassion for which it is priceless. Many volumes of script would have to be published to record all that were undertaken by you without qualms or doubts.

    Like an unceasing game of snakes and ladders, you like any other human being were consumed by some treacherous snakes along the way. Fortunately, these snakes were small as they were only closest aides with a secret agenda and could not swallow you whole, Tun. Man proposes. God disposes.

    You manage to climb the long ladders and achieved success, one after another. Some of us, the very few, are built or born this way.

    But the majority always thought they could do better. Just look at the minor official. Before he became the PM, he had already garnered RM 2 Billion without any effort ! Obviously, this minor official did not have the right MIND and APTITUDE to be a PM !

    From now on, I can see your signal contribution to the following building blocks which will form and strengthen our Nation with its Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias, our loyalty and devotion to the Constitution, the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans and is a friend to all :-

    1. A top-class Federal Government which practises NORMAL FUNCTIONS as per the Statutes. The goodness will flow down from the apex to the base of the Power Pyramid.
    2. Your successor will govern like any other Premier in the World. This is the most difficult part of being NORMAL with all the temptations offered.
    3. The National Car Project will be up and running without the MISCHIEVOUS AND CORRUPT CLOSEST AIDES TO CREATE SCANDALS behind your back.
    4. Malaysia because of your esteemed standing in international affairs will be steeped in all manner of negotiations or discussions on TRADE. No more TPPA/TPCPP for us Tun
    5. The crooked bridge may be up and running as a straight bridge !
    6. Japanese/foreign industrial townships will spring up on the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak. There will be undisturbed production for the Japanese at the lowest costs for mutual benefits.
    7. Malaysia and Singapore will be proper Sovereign Nations according to International Laws.
    8. Penang, Kedah and Perlis with bustling economies at minimum costs. Better than the Klang Valley which has gone Jurassic.
    9. Lo and behold ! Malaysia is up there with the Greats, Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, Good Governance Japan !

    This can only be a wonderful Monday morning as all the Sekolah Menengah Sekolah2 are closed. However, I was up and about before the crack of Dawn at 5.30 a.m. And one significant headline this morning thus :-

    ‘ DR M OUT TO WOO JAPANESE INVESTORS.’

    Again you have hit the nail right on the head.

    The Japanese investors are one of the best with no ‘frills’ nonsense and completely focussed on doing proper business.

    I learnt from them in the early 1960’s in international commodities trading. I was close to Kasho of Yokohama which Singaporean Japanese employees taught me how to eat sushi at one of the first Japanese restaurant housed inside the Indonesian Embassy, Orchard Road. I was also close to Ishihara Sanyo. I had no problem dealing with the Japanese ever since. I like to buy their goods which are always top quality but not cheap.

    At that time, I remember it was 220 Japanes yen to a US Dollar ! By the 1980s, the value of the Imperial Palace grounds could buy up the whole of downtown Manhattan, New York. New York. But by 1991, the yen crashed and my friend the bullion King of Japan, Okasan, went with it.

    Today in Kuala Lumpur, I observed many young Japanese have started catering businesses. This is a good sign which confirms that to a Japanese, Malaysia has a great future as befits their view that we are cosmopolitan. With the New Young and Incorruptible Government, business will be even better !

    For comparison, there are thousands of Japanese eateries in Hong Kong and hundreds in Singapore. Malaysia is still catching up.

    But through your efforts in attracting new Japanese investments, the growth in a new line of Japanese business in Malaysia will bloom.

    I came upon a Japanese restaurant owner who has since retired back to Hokkaido who showed me a picture of you and him at the opening of his restaurant during your 22 year Administration. And coincidentally, I met the Bosnian fellow who was backed by you to establish a chain of pizza restaurants in KL and made good.

    How many Malaysians know what good you have done to all and sundry ?

    Comparatively, the Hong Kong and Taiwanese investors came here to Malaysia to exploit our textile quotas to the United States or to take advantage of the cheap land and incentives offered by the Government.

    I know of one Johor Baru Hong Kong owned textile factory which brought in their old desks, old boilers and discarded machinery from Hong Kong which were declared as new for banking purposes. The Taiwanese could be considered as the sharpest in this game. They move in fast and run off just as fast as soon as they made the faat buck. Hong Kong and Taiwanese investors in businesses are generally fly0by0nite types. I believe there is a once Taiwanese industrial village in Selangor which is now abandoned very soon after establishment.

    At the moment, there is an over RM 1 Billion share rigging scandal on the Bursa which was reported to the SC in 2016 involving Taiwanese and Chinese small listed companies in collusion with a local syndicate.

    Matters like these which bring a bitter taste in the mouth.

    The Japanese from my experience are always strictly controlled professionally from Japan. No monkey business is permitted. This I can vouch for because I was once an investor in the most modern handkerchief factory set up by the biggest handkerchief corporations of Japan and Germany, Nishio and Winckler. The top bosses (owners) inspected the factory twice a year personally and stayed in Kluang, Johor for at least a week. No fun and games for them. Business is serious.

    Hence, the Japanese are the most desirable investors in Malaysia. I noted that there has been a slow down-trend in Japanese investments over the last 20 years. But a new Japanese push in investments came from the young enterprising Japanese in the catering trade. This augurs well for your forthcoming efforts to attract new Japanese investments, Tun !

    If the young Japanese think like now that Malaysia is good for them, why not the more established Japanese businesses ?

    The key is to group them together in new places where land is cheap and workers plentiful or former FTZs either in the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak with good air services as regards the logistics in relation to the factories to be set-up. AND MALAYSIA IS FRIENDLY WITH NO EARTHQUAKES, FLOODS OR TSUNAMIS.

    THE OFFER MUST BE BIG LIKE ALL YOUR BIG ABD SYCCESSFUL IDEAS TUN !

    YES TUN ! You are absolutely correct to attract the Japanese as a GROUP and establish them as a GROUP for efficient, quick and profitable returns to the Japanese and all. Let this be your new approach to the Japanese. Cheap land, electricity, water and efficient workers plus good transportation and living conditions for their families and children, practically and culturally for our two hands to clap together.

    I AM CERTAIN TUN YOUR IDEA GIVES RISE TO MANY MALAYSIAN CORPORATIONS WILLING TO BUILD COMPLETE TOWNSHIPS FOR JAPANESE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS AS A PACKAGE DEAL. Who says there are no opportunities in Malaysia Tun ?

    As I have been saying, your MIND which is free from fun and games unlike the others who came after you, is truly for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat. Who else but Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who has no blood on his hands ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Let Malaysia have a deal with the Japanese not one or two small ones, BUT A TOTAL BIG PACKAGE/S WHICH PUTS A STAMP ON PROFITABLITLY FOR ALL SERIOUSLY FOR AT LEAST A GENERATION, Tun ! Yes, everything is possible in the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak with the New Young and Incorruptible Government, Tun ! Malaysia is ready and willing Tun !

    This Sunday is one of the most relaxed and quiet for the ordinary man or woman in the street.

    Most have either gone back to their kampongs or taking it easy in their shorts or hot pants strolling the air-cooled Malls located at nexus points near to the highways or byways which are easily accessible to all and sundry or those who look forward to the great Hindu Deepavali festival holidays soon.

    This is what a peaceful and harmonious Nation like our beloved Malaysia should be – a perfect place to raise a family for the future. No problem.

    However what more has anyone to say after the great anticipation of a solid and significant 2019 Budget the dynamic platform for the future and its anti-climax ? Nothing much of depth in it but what was not said was ominous to the few who understood.

    The powerless BN types howled ‘copycat’ with the sudden realization of a total disconnect by them between money and politics. They never had it so good for 14 years at the expense of the Rakyat 2004 to 2018.

    One minor official could scoop up RM 2 Billion without much effort and his powerful friend at that time took it as a matter of course. So much for corrupt practices by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004 to 2018. Let us now determine the signal achievements which were attained during the 22 years of your Administration, Tun !

    Throughout the 22 years Administration, all the closest aides let you down because of their secret agenda except one. Those who were supposed to deliver the Proton, the steel mill, the Bakun Dam etc crossed the red-line of no return which incurred losses. But the experience from these negative results has now turned into good use now WITHOUT THESE MISCHIEVOUS CLOSEST AIDES WHICH ONLY CREATED SCANDALS AT YOUR EXPENSE, Tun.

    As it was wise-cracked, they were all YES-MEN, from ex-duck feather plucking ex-tycoons to loud-mouthed Stradivarius violin collectors who sleep in Singapore and Subang !

    But your notable and distinctive achievements 1981 to 2003 were way above those little hiccups created BY UNEDUCATED CLOSEST AIDES ! These were from 1981 to 2003 as follows :-

    1. 1981-2003 – An Era of Peace and Harmony which brought Prosperity and Advancement to All.

    2. The Construction of the North-South Highway and its tributaries which brought huge areas of undeveloped land into arable land for commerce and development at one go along the West Coast.

    3. The development of Pulau Tioman, Pulau Perhentian, Pulau Pangkor and Pulau Langkawi and Labuan.

    4. The KLIA was another catalyst to create wealth not only to the big land owners nearby but hundreds of small land owners along the NS/Selangor border or towards the sea. The access roads to the KLIA created more wealth for the stakeholders.

    5. The privatisation of public owned enterprises was the way to go, Tun. But who can put a stop to the exuberant new owners financing art galleries in Singapore curated by their closest and dearest at public expense ? At the end of the day, all turned turtle and kaput ! After they all nodded in UNISON many mornings in Pulau Langkawi that they would perform and deliver. You thought they were all with you on the 88th Storey but their minds were actually in the basement or Singapore !

    6. The iconic PETRONAS Towers attracted billions of ringgits from foreign tourists who came all the way to have a look-see at this Malaysia- made apparition. It was the correct call.

    7. Your request for a fair and equitable revision of the lop-sided 1962 Water Agreement with Singapore was correct. That was yesterday. Today is today, Tun. Singapore is only waiting for a solution to save face. No more. No less.

    8. The improvement to the 1921 Causeway was correct and long overdue.

    9. To treat Malaysia as an export oriented country and not a financial centre was correct with the appropriate market measures pertaining to the ringgit. Between 1972 t0 1981, the Ringgit was RM 1.00 to S$1.03,with gold in the BNM vaults. Yhis was too strong for exports and tourism. But it was appropriate for circumstances of the time after 13 May 1969, NEP and a new FM.

    10. Your emphasis on the FTZs really took the cream of FDI which boosted an agricultural country into a basic industrial environment. A great socio-economic success too. But political and socio-economic considerations did not produce a single true industrialist like South Korea or Taiwan at the material time. This left me to be an industrialist of sorts after the successful restructuring of Folex Industries Berhad, the biggest bankruptcy then 1974-1984 and now. The proposed sogo-shoshas failed because there were no building blocks to put together in a new and undeveloped country with no true entrepreneurs except for that fellow from the Melaka wet market.

    11. You were wise not to disturb important icons like the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur Bursa until it was absolutely necessary with the Foreign Exchange Controls of 2000 !

    12. Your Foreign Policy stance was based on facts and facts and not on emotions and emotions. This has stood Malaysia well to this very day. The rest of the World believe and trust you as a person who keeps his words ! Thinking on all this, maybe you write a NUTSHELL for neophytes who aspire to be Prime Ministers !

    13. Inflation was kept under control during the 22 years of your Administration giving the chance to all to save money.

    14. Many private colleges and universities were established giving a choice of education to all. The SMKs were kept at a high standard which was enough to permit all to attend overseas universities without any disadvantage.

    15. Communications and media were up-graded on par with the World.

    16. Healthcare services improved too with no theft of the doctors right to dispense medicines unlike those who came after you, Tun

    17. The whole Malaysian Society was balanced by your efforts despite cynical attempts to imbalance it. The Rule of the Law prevailed.

    18. Even your retirement on October 2003 was correct. But who knows what the future would bring. And you with your tenacity, brilliance and courage took up the challenge again to build for us and the World a top-class Malaysia to rub shoulders with the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    19. Business was easy to establish and to do.

    20. Man proposes. God disposes. We will all be with the greats as guided and led by you Tun !

    There are many more of your achievements which I may have left out, Tun ! But comparatively the period between 2004 to 2018 was one dark hellish void of negativity which held Malaysia and her dynamic peoples back in terms of development and better LIFE for the Rakyat. No more. No less.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! There is no way to go but up from now on.

    My heartiest congratulations to you and the FM for presenting a down to earth 2019 Budget for the Nation. The Budget is comprehensive and covers all the essential areas as befits a national financial situation in dire straits due to the rapacious Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    Many traditional Sectors of the economy were not taxed. No new taxes were introduced. All these are good indicators to show there is no desperation on the part of the New Young and Incorruptible Government to raise revenue because the reduction and the ultimate repayment of the RM 1 Trillion debt is under control.

    I like the Samurai Fund pertaining to RM7.4 Billion for 10 years from Japan with which we have a long relationship. It is good to know this relationship is strong and healthy.

    And the allowance for the Ministry of Education is good, very good.

    This 2019 Budget is the firm indicator of the good things to come under a New Young and Incorruptible Government.

    As I pointed out previously, when the Corrupt and Non-caring BN Government was in power, every Ringgit the Government spent, only 60 sens worth could be retained. With the New Young and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great, 80 – 90 sens value could be recovered in Governmental projects. This saving in itself is a remarkable achievement Honesty is the best Policy for all,

    Tun. After the horrendous 14 years, 2004 to 2018 of stealing money by leaders who were supposed to lead and be role models. It’s a great shame that these leaders were exposed as people with no honesty and merit ! The Rakyat never put them to the test. These leaders did it to themselves by shooting themselves in the foot ! They can only blame themselves for betraying the Rakyat’s trust which was placed on them. Did they think how many could be the Prime Minister of a country ? Did they think whatever a Prime Minister did wrong is treason ?

    Tun, you have got a good and efficient team of leaders together in the New Young and Incorruptible Government which is now poised to clean up the Augean Stables and be ready to push the socio-economic agenda of our beloved Malaysia as one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. With a 2019 Budget like this, Malaysia is on trek upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. No problem.

    As the ancients said, ‘ You can only win in the streets if you have peace and harmony at home.’ That’s the 2019 Budget, Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh as always Tun ! The 2019 Budget confirmed

    This morning was slightly wet and dull as I ferried my grand-daughter to the last Test for the year at her Sekolah Kebangsaan. I noted that she was happy and confident and looked forward to my promise of buying her a couple of Japanese fiction in English at the Kino KLCC.

    For some months now our citizens appeared to be happy and satisfied but with empty pockets due to the rapacious Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. But being resilient and courteous, they will prevail with the New Young and Incorruptible Government.

    Strangely, I had this feeling that your 12 November Meeting in Singapore will be a great success like your successful achievements Pre-22 year Administration, your 22 year Administration achievements and your 9 May 2018 Victory which gives hope for all of us of a mighty and strong Malaysia.

    For the very first time, arising from this Malaysia-Singapore Meeting, our relationships would be placed on a proper footing as between Sovereign Nations. This is a good step forward to all the co-operation which our 2 countries can put together for the common good. Little sticky issues which bugged as in the 20th Century will be things of the past. The great ventures which are looming in the far horizon cannot be ignored like the Belt and Road, the Triumvirate of India, Japan and China getting closer together to keep themselves in a balanced and survival mode. All these, ASEAN with Malaysia and Singapore cannot miss. They are as big as the elephant in the proverbial room.

    Hence, I conjecture with all the cards on the table, both countries can easily pick the right ones to build up a picture of sincere friendship between Malaysia and Singapore. At the end of the day, both Prime Ministers should sign off to complete the picture of true friendship and co-operation. Who can do better than this ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Your future achievements will be your greatest on any term !

    Will usa taxpayers feel their money is well spent by sending military troops to the mexican border rather than banning weapon rights on blanket form or military wars against terrorism since none of the usa presidents had chosen to do that except mr trump, the answer would be know in november’s mid term election soon.

    Fan bing bing with fans of 60 million accross and outside china is humble enough to admit her wrong doing because under the provincial law and central law, she could be jailed when she doesnt admit her wrong doing of not declaring her tax for the last 5 years.

    The top officials in this provincial income tax department are punished too for this tax fraud that accumulated for 5 years.

    Sini, these so called perjuang bangsa dan agama mereka with title defacto decided to rebrand barisan nasional so that they can stay relevant with forever got tommorow one of man proposes, god disposes by changing hands at the top echelon by saying, hey, this is my chickens, with snap of fingers in tunjuk their perasaan whereby igp will let them go off just like that?

    If they want to rot, and left behind, thats the choice they made, and thats nothing we can do about it.

    I dont feel angry nor frustrated anymore because after giving them more than 60 years, they still think they are not rich, it is up to other component parties to decide whether to join, or not to join them.

    Modi had spend billion of us dollar for building his worshipping giant statue in uniting the indian, will his political party still win in coming general election?

    Hollywood vs bollywood?

    I guess tdm already had the answer in his heart.

    Tun

    Some would have noted that I kept mentioning the wonderful and fine mornings over and over again. My intention is pure and simple.

    If all of us appreciate and take note of the same wonderful mornings together every morning, we have UNITY in thought which hopefully will lead us all to think about what made our beloved Malaysia great or the possible tragedies which might suddenly fall upon us. If all our fellow citizens have UNITY IN THOUGHT IT NATURALLY FOLLOWS UNITY IN ACTION FOLLOWS ! But in our beloved Malaysia, we must always expect the unexpected !

    This morning as I was cruising around looking for a suitable place to satisfy my famished palate, Lo and Behold ! My weary eyes caught sight of a new modern Malay café designed according to a modern theme, open kitchen and an eclectic array of foods, Ikan bakar, Sotong bakar, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Korea (?), Kampung Ayam etc. All advertised loudly in a modern style menu. Malaysian cuisine has now come into its own in keeping with the times. I just had a kopi-O as its full menu only springs into play at mid-day !

    And the headlines this morning only underlined the obvious, with the Opposition media going all out to draw attention.

    1. NST. ‘MALAYSIA DROPS 9 PLACES IN ENGLISH PROFICIENCY RANKINGS.’

    2. STAR.’NO EXAMS FOR LOWER PRIMARY.’

    3. NST. ‘OFFICERS IN LAND SALE ON LEAVE.’

    4. MALAY MAIL. ‘ BNM OFFICERS ON LEAVE OVER PROBE ON LAND DEAL’

    5. STAR. ‘ BNM PROBES DEEP INTO DISPUTED RM 2 BIL LAND PURCHASE.’

    6. FINANCIAL DAILY. ‘ BANK NEGARA COMMISSIONS REVIEW ON PURCHASE OF LOT 41.

    7. NST. ‘EXAMS ABOLISHED TO MAKE LEARNING FUN.’

    8. STAR. ‘ NO EXAMS FOR LOWER PRIMARY.’

    9. STAR. ‘ SURVEY SHOWS MOST MALAYSIANS SPEAK GOOD ENGLISH.’

    10. MALAY MAIL. ‘ MALAYSIA EIGHTH WORST COUNTRY FOR FREEDOM OF THOUGHT.’

    11. MALAY MAIL. ‘ WHAT SUPREMACY ? KETUANAN POINTLESS IF YOU ARE LABOURERS ‘

    12 MALAY MAIL. ‘ PACIFIC TRADE PACT SHUNNED BY TRUMP CLEARED FOR LAUNCH.’

    13. FINANCIAL DAILY. ‘ PACIFIC TRADE PACT CLEARED FOR LAUNCH.’

    These 13 headlines encompass all that will affect us for now and the future – either we Malaysians stand par with the rest of the World or be SUBSUMED INTO A SLAVE COLONY OF SINGAPORE VIA THE TPPA/CPTPP. Vide, the professional comments of Prof. Jomo and the UN Economics expert based at UNCTAD, New Delhi.

    1. The very first wise and practical decision by the YB Minister of Education. The stress on the parents and children should not begin at such a young age. Mental development goes in step with a child’s physical development. The objective in Education is to be all-inclusive and accept slow developers which are treated normally like the fast developers. I have seen as the pressure mounted in the higher grades teacher parents resorted to exchange exam papers with each other to ease their children’s suffering. This cheating crutch did not help the children in Tertiary Education. They all collapsed. Serious education begins in the Secondary Schools. Education must be all-inclusive.

    2. In 1969/1970, I remember the then Minister of Education promulgated his own version of the National Policy for Education and then disappeared into the thick forests of Sarawak. Our drop in the proficiency in English began after this, in a country where the art of speaking English should be no problem. It’s correction time once again. Hopefully, this is the very last time for the sake’s of our country and our children. With the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, there was absolute absenteeism on this important subject called English.

    3. Our Freedom of Thought is interconnected with our Education System and what the Government of the Day thinks about Freedom of Thought. The World had turned many times over since the Cold War 1948 to 1989 ! What was toxic then may be a cure-all today.

    4. What Supremacy ? Suddenly we Malaysians found ourselves carrying an EMBARASSING WORD, ‘KETUANAN’. Fellows who claimed to be ketuanan are no ketuanan at all. As Tun rightly pointed out,AND I ADD, ‘ HOW TO BE KETUANAN WHEN LITTLE BOYS COULD BRING DOWN A GOVERNMENT OF 60 YEARS STANDING ? Not only that the TPPA/CPTPP the Lee Kuan Yew created Malaysia Killer was signed and READY TO BE RATIFIED AND DELIVERED IF NOT FOR THE UNEXPECTED COLLAPSE OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT ON 9 MAY 2018. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Tun, see the UNJUST AND EXPLOITATION OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    On the one hand, an absurd and lop-side Water Agreement 1962 between Sovereign Nations is NON-NEGOTIABLE. ON THE OTHER, OUR CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT TOGETHER WITH LEE KUAN YEW’S EMBEDDED COHORTS IN OUR SYSTEM COMMITTED THE ULTIMATE TREASON BY SELLING US LOCK-STOCK AND BARREL VIA THE TPPA/CPTPP TO TURN US INTO A SLAVE COLONY OF SINGAPORE. Where else but Malaysia Tun ? The word ‘SHAME’ does not appear in our vocabulary, Tun !

    If we ratify the TPPA/CPTPP we become SLAVES of the slave Colony of Singapore.

    i) Overnight tariff free goods of all descriptions will flood in to kill our businesses.

    ii) Only beneficiaries are those small esoteric rubber goods manufacturers which potential benefits to Malaysia ae limited.

    iii) The rest of the Malaysian Industry whatever these are only benefit in 20 years time.

    In the meantime, Singapore THE SOLE BENEFICIARY OF TPPA?CPTPP AS ENVISIONED BY LEE KUAN YEW, benefits IMMEDIATELY. No wonder the Singaporeans treat us as stupid all the time ! No more cheating for us, Tun !

    WE SHOULD BE TIRED OF THIS CHEATING WHICH DID NOT DATE FROM 1962 BUT 1947 !

    5) The functions of Bank Negara Malaysia as governed by Statute are :

    I) Banker to the Government.

    ii) Issuer of the currency

    iii) Safeguard the currency.

    The headlines mentioned about commercial dealings of a Central Bank.

    However, there is the Monopolistic Corrupt Archaic and Useless Discount House System which adds on the cost of banking to the Rakyat. No country used the Discount House System for over 50 years. It is alleged that the Managers of Bank Negara Malaysia in charge of increase and reduction of interest were bought up by a major Discount House since the mid-1870s. The longest CORRUPTION IN MALAYSIA IF NOT THE WORLD. Abolish the MONOPOLISTIC CORRUPT ARCHAIC AND USELESS DISCOUNT HOUSE SYSTEM OWNED BY A VERY FEW !

    Malaysia Boleh as always ! No cheating for us, Tun, we are Malaysians !

  66. mubarakchan Oct 31,2018 10:58 PM

    Tun

    There have been many reports on your forthcoming visit to Singapore on the Water Agreement 1962. It suddenly struck me that there is NO REASON WHY SINGAPORE SHOULD BE INTRANSIGENT ON THIS WATER AGREEMENT BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING TYCOONS WERE PAID TOP DOLLAR FOR THEIR ASSETS ?

    And what services did the tycoons provide to Singapore which treats Malaysia differently on the Water Agreement 1962 ? Why return favours to tycoons and NOT TO MALAYSIA, a Sovereign Nation with National Interests ?

    1. DBS purchased Dao Heng Bank Hong Kong over the usual price.

    2. Li Ka Shing Watson Chain was purchased for a good price.

    3. Thaksin’s business was purchased for a high price which investment returns are said to be nothing exceptional.

    And Singapore did not show any recognition of a one-side Water Agreement 1962 which needs to be re-negotiated.

    EVEN PRESIDENT TRUMP DID IT TO NAFTA, IRAN NUCLEAR TREATY, CLIMATE CHANGE TREATY, NATO, UPU TREATY ON POST. TRADE DEALS WITH CHINA AND JAPAN. TPPA, He has always claimed any Treaty which is one-sided, he would RE-NEGOTIATE FOR BETTER TERMS.

    If the great United States could do it, why not Malaysia ?

    Malaysia’s request for a re-negotiated Water Agreement 1962 is fair and just WITHOUT GOING TO THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE AT THE HAGUE because President Trump has shown THE WAY !

    Malaysia is losing money every day with the Water Agreement 1962 because of the depreciation of the Malaysian Ringgit and the lop-sided Agreement which did not include Inflation, Monetary Depreciation, 3 sens locked in for 50 years or more WITH NO ESCAPE CLAUSE !

    ARE WE GOING TO BE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD AGAIN BY SUPPLYING WATER AT A LOSS TO SINGAPORE TO KEEP THEM HAPPY ?

    I feel we should be compensated for any loss in money by supplying water to Singapore since 1962 and forget all the Abang-Adek nonsense. No country in the World SUBSIDIZES ANOTHER COUNTRY BY LOSING MONEY ON ITS OWN NATURAL RESOURCES. One cheeky Singaporean said Malaysia got the water free from Heaven ! OK ! What has this to do with Singapore ?

    No wonder the Singaporeans think we are all stupid.

    If President Trump can seek a fair and just deal for the United States of America by going back to Treaties as far back as the 19th Century, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH MALAYSIA GOING TO THE HAGUE ASKING FOR A FAIR PRICE AND SEEKING A FAIR COMPENSATION GOING BACK TO 1962. No one is above the Rule of Law.

    Only this time, Malaysia should engage an up to the mark lawyer instead of an EMERITUS PROFESSOR past his prime. And no tango for two, Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  67. mubarakchan Oct 31,2018 10:06 PM

    Tun

    I finally got some time to write a few lines after rushing about doing the odd jobs from 5.30 a.m. to 7 p.m. I suppose this sort of activity keeps me alive and well. But I am fully aware that my present physical attributes are like that of a 100 year old motorcar much worn out and depreciated. And what keep people like me going and going as though we are 21 years old in mind and spirit only with nothing much else to show but just a figment of imagination ?

    Yes ! It’s the mental crutches of the Mind. I still have mine of a different kind which crutches kept me going throughout my Life. And you quite rightly mentioned about ‘crutches’ or ‘politically induced crutches’ for the fortunate few who depend on them all the time.

    There are monetary crutches or mental crutches or free education crutches and many crutches to assist the apparent dis-advantaged along in Life.

    First, we have rich men’s sons who are so well-endowed that the wealth they have become crutches on their outlook in Life. They normally failed and disappeared from view.

    Second, a phenomenon limited to a privileged group which was looked after so well that mental crutches became inherent in their minds. And the utilization of their brains maybe less than 30% unlike Tun’s brain which is 100% at work all the time.

    So when Tun mentioned about having less crutches for those who depended on them, I am certain most of them scratched their heads trying to figure out what the crutches meant. In most case, the mental crutches filled the balance of the 70% of the minds. How to go about turning all these minds with 70% mental crutches into minds like the Tun ?

    It is obvious that this wonderful elixir of Life with the full use of one’s brain cannot be done in a short span of Time.

    An exceptional person like Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad spent his boyhood days with his scholarly father who probably was as strict as they come as teachers. Then, his zeal to save Humankind brought him to pore over tomes of thick medical textbooks in small print. His brain synapses were boosted by will and candour set by the medical curriculum which made sure no young medic had any free time throughout the week – for over 5 years. A sort of pressure cooker to inculcate memory in the neophyte. This was the Theory. The Practice of Medicine comes later. All in all, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s brain was fashioned to absorb, analyse, and diagnose a cure or whatever after his brain was so meticulously prepared when he was young and nubile to absorb all sorts of information available at his most physically active age. This is the extreme example of success with the training of the brain which becomes the MIND when it is turn to good use.

    For the ordinary student which progressed through all the normal stages of education to his first job of his Life, there will be the peer pressure and his first taste of political favours which would turn into mental crutches later on as he progressed in the Malaysian Society. Unless the person has the natural curiosity to improve himself or herself by continuing further studies or DIY reading of eclectic subjects, most graduate would have been overwhelmed by their work and family life.

    In order to create a person without relying MENTAL CRUTCHES, it seems the proper way to go about it is to inculcate the values of leisure reading, competitive sports, educational and mind searching board games etc which becomes a habit right throughout one’s adult life.

    In time, those prepared accordingly would break out independently to do their own thing with their careers whether in batik fashion,or fusion Malaysian cuisine, or horticulture fish, orchard, animal farming, or SME’s, or e-business, or gambolling in the capital market, or property developers, etc instead of relying on hand-outs which are related to ‘political crutches.’ and cushy jobs in a country full of opportunities to push further afield overseas.

    Maybe, the school curriculum includes a subject on how to achieve SELF-DEVELOPMENT FROM YOUNG TO ADULTHOOD LIKE THE EXAMPLE OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD. Good memory. Positive thinking. Enjoy doing it. Successful achievements give satisfaction, not money per se. Do not be jealous of others. Little drops make a mighty Ocean.

    The New, Young and Incorruptible Government has a full plate in their hands.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  68. mubarakchan Oct 30,2018 3:05 PM

    Tun

    This morning was as fine as yesterday morning with a cloudless sky and not a drop of air around. As I walked past the young banyan tree by the roadside, the resident bulbul began to chirp sending a warm message to my heart. Off I went with my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan being the second day of her Final Tests for the year. It was good for me to note quietly that she was confident and had whatever problems she might have under her control. It’s all a state of mind, Tun as we know.

    And as for the headlines, there were none of note as the New, Young and Incorruptible Government gets into the stride of governing with Normalcy and Routine. This is what should be as the huge malfeasances of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government are being dealt with in a routine manner. Catch the crooks and charge them in Court would be the Order of the Day Tun.

    With this quiet and peaceful background, the Rakyat have returned to their work places with no hiccups or displacement.

    No more un-towards surprises for anyone at least for the near foreseeable future. I do not expect the Budget to be a shaker and mover of the Earth either.

    With our internal affairs well under control and our former Opposition leaders now overnight became Government Leaders, willy-nilly the YBs must DIY or learn the ropes with each passing day.

    I note mischievous journalists from the Opposition tried to trap certain YBs with loaded and direct questions. This is to be expected as part of the initiation process.

    But with the bland political events in train, it is the EXTERNAL AFFAIRS WHICH FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME PUT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA RIGHT IN THE COCKPIT OF WORLD AFFAIRS WITH THE GREATS AND WITHOUT OUR ASKING.

    Fortunately, our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is now the Leader not only of our Malaysian Government but the MOST SENIOR AND CAPABLE LEADER OF ASEAN AND ASIA AS WELL. His consistency shows he is no demagogue !

    The die is now cast for the flurry of Foreign Events concerning Policies to come due to the awakening of the 3 Giants of Asia, India, Japan and China.

    Our Prime Minister would be invited all the time for his input which will be positive and direct as he has NO SELFISH MOTIVES AS ALWAYS AND NEVER SMALL MINDED unlike some self-appointed giants with feet of clay !

    Whether we like it or not, the ‘akan dating’ action will be in the Foreign Arena where the future destinies of all Asian Nations will be cast in stone within the next 2 or 3 years after having been duly shaken by President Trump and his iconoclastic ways.

    Yes Tun ! It’s Malaysia’s Foreign and Trade Policies which will matter because the writing is on the proverbial horizon concerning Nations which have billions of mouths to feed and look after with shortages of all essential necessities for Life.

    And our beloved Malaysia has become the most important Small Country of the World out of 4 important ones being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia, given your esteemed Leadership.

    This eclectic game of thrones has now gone past the National Car Project reaching up to decide on the future fates of Asian Nations and Asia in a peaceful, harmonious and NON-WARLIKE environment.

    There you are Tun ! Man proposes. God disposes.

    Those who came after your 2003 retirement cannot say anything anymore ! They had their opportunities without any effort which you assisted and gave to them Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Without reaching for the Sky, our beloved Malaysia is there ! It’s our rich amalgam of everything which all came together NATURALLY. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Keep smiling broadly Tun and Tun Siti Hasmah, we all smile with you. No more mischievous closest aides to create scandals anymore !

  69. mubarakchan Oct 29,2018 8:54 PM

    Tun

    After my comments of the importance of your Leadership in the interests of Malaysia and ASEAN in the forthcoming Trade Talks amongst all Asian Nations Big and Small, yesterday afternoon, Lo and Behold when I switched on the TV, there was a broadly smiling Mr Modi and an equally broadly smiling Mr Abe shaking hands with each other. This camaraderie can only meant one thing and one thing only, how to increase Trade with each other, between India and Japan.

    Now we have a triumvirate of major countries, 3 of them from Asia making urgent pow-wows to save their Nations and peoples Salvation, Progress and Jobs. This is the Way. This is Your Way as envisioned.

    Maybe in the future, all Asians will thank President Trump for marching to a set of different drums from the rest of the World !

    However a little sticking point is that Lee Kuan Yew created TPPA/CPTPP which was crafted by him as his enduring Legacy for his Inheritors.

    TPPA enshrined his obsession to enslave our beloved Malaysia via a free market. This will fail if 100% of the Malaysians are not stupid.

    And the last set of BN negotiators were in Lee Kuan Yew’s little pocket. They talked like SINGAPOREANS.

    Remember his ‘farewell’ trip at the age of 85 to the hot and humid Ulus. For him every minute counted.

    However, come what may under your wise guidance and clearly thinking on options which he had none, our beloved Malaysia will get the BEST DEAL OUT OF ANY TRADE DEAL TO COME. (It was alleged there was a bungle with the India Palm Oil deal in the early 1980s)

    And this morning, we see the Prince from Saudi Arabia inviting you Tun on behalf of his father the King of Saudi Arabia to visit him.

    The huge international respect engendered from your brilliant and courageous 9 May 2018 Victory is now spilling over the cup of success. And the World recognition that our beloved Malaysia is now one of 4 important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan, Malaysia, located at the most important strategic geo-political choke point in the World from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is going to be very busy. It has now become one of the most important in the Land !

    In the 1950s, the KGB came to town to look for our Foreign Policy high and low. They could not find it. Later, the Russian Ambassador congratulated our Tunku for his great success in hiding it. The Tunku replied that our Malaya had no Foreign Policy ! Believe it or not Tun !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Smile broadly and freely Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah. We all smile with you ! Free from closest aides to cause mischief. Those whom you thought were with you on the 88 storeys but actually their minds were in the Basement !

    Whatever choices made here politically, no one can stop you mubarakchan, and i noted with full understanding of the political situation in here,

    What will happen, it will happen.

    What will not happen, it will not happen.

    Therefore, never do it by force to avoid breaks in unity, properity and harmony of
    all races, memang tidak berbaloi.

    P/s: it looks like only marginalized indian political parties are with umno perak, and this is within the expectations of political parties. What to do, thats politics, either you as leader take it, or leave it.

    Pendek kata, when myr 5 million could bought someone over, then they are gone case to enjoy future myr 1 trillion worth of economic activities in process.

    They already made their choice, and if they still feel proud and complacent with what they earned over night in the name of lobbies, then, indeed, they are weak leaders.

    Opposition party in singapore could raised sgd1 million in 1 week, it simply means their members have money, and they know, when they broke the law, they must paid the court charges, habis cerita.

    P/s: even though 3rd national car is private initiative, but, this expensive price would be borne by the future generations, just like military wars, is it fair to our future generations eventhough the private sector can be billionaires today?

    IS THERE A CHINESE LOOKING MANGY DOG WHICH BARKS YUP! YUP! YUP! at the mere mention of Lee Kuan Yew’s name in this distinguished Blog ? If anyone finds one, lets soot it dead !

    Good morning!

    Hari nan cerah. Selalu hanya pagi. Petang lain cerita. Harap Tun sekeluarga sihat dalam cuaca yang tak menentu.

    Semalam I baca tulisan M Shanmugam dalam The Star online. Isu yang hangat diperkatakan. I share di sini:

    What’s so special about taxi drivers?

    The print version of The Malay Mail, a 121-year-old newspaper, will stop on Dec 1. The paper, which at one time commanded a circulation of more than 60,000 copies, is the latest victim of disruptive technology in the media world.

    In the United Kingdom, department store chain Debenhams will close down 50 stores over the next two years, causing 4,000 people to be unemployed. Online shopping has taken away customers who prefer to purchase most things — from clothes to even milk — via their smartphones or laptops.

    Facebook and Google have taken away a chunk of advertising revenue that would otherwise have gone to media companies. The likes of Lazada, Zalora, Alibaba, Amazon and Mirraw have taken away customers from department stores, causing the closure of large outlets.

    The effect of technology on the real economy has cut across all industries – from retail to media and the transport industry. Thousands have seen their regular income levels dropping, or have lost their jobs.

    image: https://content.thestar.com.my/smg/settag/name=lotame/tags=all

    So, what is so special about taxi drivers that warranted Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to listen to their grouses to the extent that he even offered to resign should they want it?

    Is it because Dr Mahathir is the MP for Langkawi?

    Or do the taxi drivers in Langkawi, who are generally Malays, represent the epitome of the political pushback as the new government seeks to reform the public institutions that provide support for the lower-income group?

    The latter is likely the answer.

    Under the previous government, the solution would have been a cash handout. Everybody would have benefitted, whether the poor taxi driver or the rich guy who owns a taxi company or a fleet of taxis.

    It is not a permanent solution for taxi drivers as Grab is popular. But that will reduce the noise. This time around, however, the government does not have much money to spare.

    Moreover, the Pakatan Harapan government was voted in to institute changes in government agencies that are to assist groups such as taxi drivers, and at the same time plug the leakage. Handing out cash to appease certain groups is a practice that we don’t want to see being continued.

    Taxi drivers generally fall into the bottom 40% segment of the population, or better known as the B40 category. Their income is low and they are caught in a vicious cycle of living in poverty and ending up with little or no education.

    According to the latest Khazanah Research Institute report, households that earn less than RM2,000 a month only had RM76 left after spending for household expenditure in 2016.

    The B40 category of people are from various industries – from construction to transport and services. This particular group of people generally voted for a change in the government because they wanted more from the growing economic pie.

    If taxi drivers are given privileges, what about other segments of the B40 population who are also feeling the pinch due to the changes brought about by technology?

    There is a “Grab version” for lorry drivers and even hoteliers. So, are the workers affected going to be given handouts as well?

    The reform agenda that should eventually help the B40 will not happen overnight.

    Firstly, there has to be a major clean-up of the existing system and state-owned entities (SOEs) that are entrusted with giving out assistance to the B40 before they can even start helping the genuinely poor.

    Under the previous government, there was abuse. In almost every scheme, the rich and well-connected got richer.

    As rightly pointed out by Parti Bersatu supreme council member, Wan Saiful Wan Jan, at a recent meeting with bumiputra contractors in Kedah, before the government can even start giving jobs, the list of bumiputra contractors who deserve government assistance needs to be cleaned up.

    Otherwise, any restricted tender exercise to award jobs to bumiputra contractors would only result in the same group of wealthy contractors competing among themselves.The new government has said that it will not give blanket subsidy or handouts to all and sundry. The people certainly do not want to see an economic system that thrives on political patronage.

    Political patronage does not inspire confidence in investors.

    Malaysia has lost two big names in the world of technology to Singapore because of the lack of confidence in the system.

    Grab, which was founded in Malaysia by Malaysians and is the most expensive technology company in the region, decided to move its headquarters to Singapore a few years ago. In Singapore, the taxi drivers cannot complain. The fear of the government turning the rules because of political pressure is not there.

    The sense of confidence allowed Grab to raise more money from investors.

    This week, we lost the race to entice UK-based Dyson to hub its electric car project in Malaysia. Dyson has also gone to Singapore.

    Did Dyson choose Singapore over Malaysia because the automobile industry in Malaysia is highly politicised and tends to see government intervention when the going gets tough?

    We really will not know, but we have lost out again, even with Dr Mahathir wanting a third national car project.

    After seeing the Langkawi incident, when even the 93-year-old prime minister offered to resign despite having won the general election by a big margin, the fear is that the Pakatan Harapan government may not carry out the reforms of the government institutions.

    It would be a pity if that fear is allowed to fester. Hopefully, the Langkawi incident is an isolated case.

    The new Malaysia has got investors excited. At the same time, they are also watching to see how the new government will handle the reform of public-sector institutions, especially SOEs and other agencies that have been set up to help with the bumiputra agenda.

    It takes time and it will be painful. Budget 2019 will have measures to help the B40 segment of the population, but it will never be enough.

    The only way to resolve the problem of inequity and leakages is by reforming the agencies in the public sector. Reforms can only be done gradually as it takes time, but time is something that Dr Mahathir does not have in his hands.

    Tun

    I love to get up before the crack of Dawn which is the finest hour in our beloved Malaysia.

    The hour before dusk is second best. Both hours would be the times I set out during those care-free days after Merdeka driving out-station along the A roads with hardly any traffic. Beautiful Malaysia at her best. No budding Michael Schumacher along our roads then because there were hardly any cars.

    Who could imagine the huge strides in development and human movements every day as created by the first 4 most respected and successful Prime Ministers of our beloved Land the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Who could imagine ?

    As who could imagine the downfall and collapse of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government on 9 May 2018 ?

    And who could even hazard a guess that Japan and China would come to kissing terms to save themselves in the interests of their own survival and national interests in this late October ?

    And yet there you were dropping a few snippets on Democracy in Asia this very month of October 2018 Tun !

    How apt that you penned the snippets on Democracy in Asia at the beginning of the month ?

    Who could foretell such earth shattering events are beginning to take place in our homelands, Malaysia and Asia which will finally free all the vestiges of imperial hegemony and WAR in the near future due to Uncle Sam’s reneging on his hegemonic spiel ‘Globalization. Free Trade, Human Rights.’ and other important International Treaties.

    This imperial hegemonic spiel hit the World in all its glory and hit the tiny state of Singapore forcefully right on its head which lost its most profitable Black Trades in arms trading, etc entirely to the BRICS after decades of easy undercover money. This enabled Lee Kuan Yew to claim his Miracle of pushing the tiny isle to the First World without any effort.

    Who could imagine Singapore lost its GDP pants by the turn of the 21st Century ? No one could !

    And today, Tun, you sit in the cockpit of Statesmanship with the GREATS OF INDIA, JAPAN AND CHINA represented by Modi, Abe and Xi, as the GREAT of ASEAN or South East Asia. Man proposes. God disposes. This is no laughing matter which to some it is like the Chinese looking mangy dog which barks YUP! YUP! YUP1 in this distinguished Blog.

    In the interests of Survival and Growth for the peoples of each Nation, these Leaders will get together to carve out a road map to come closer together to Trade for their survival in the form of jobs and all things which make a Nation function normally.

    With the great United States now marching to a set of different drums, it does not take long for the others to know the score which will eventually fall on them.

    To this end, I see these Great Nations get closer and be more accommodative together in their own National Interests. And as you are one of the Greats yourself and in the interests of Malaysia and as a respected Great Leader of South East Asian or ASEAN, you would be invited to join them TO FORMULATE A NEW ORDER CONCERNING THE NON-WARLIKE AND PEACEFUL NATIONS OF ASIA WITH ITS HARD-WORKING AND DYNAMIC PEOPLES.

    This is a significant Watershed in the political and socio-economics for the World in which the EU is languishing due to the loss of the dynamism and ideals of its peoples. Compared with the rest of the World, Asia will pull up her socks and do things in her own interest as we have been doing for thousands of years despite the deliberate divisions created by the Colonialists.

    This unexpected event from the United States will bring the Asians together.

    Japan and China despite certain differences could and would do much concerning external threats to their Survival, Growth and Existence as meaningful entities vis-a-vis their peoples. To this end, we will see fast and furious developments to come in the near future.

    And for the very first time Malaysia will be there with you Tun in the lead and not playing half-past 19th hole golf !

    If those who succeeded you from 2004-2018 had only done their NORMAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES by just checking into office at 8 a.m. and checking out at 5 p.m. to play golf, they would also be famous and enduring historical figures too, Tun, so to speak ! But Man proposes. God disposes. Tun.

    This significant and historical mantle of a Great Statesman has fallen on you who deserves it most and not to those who love fun and games !

    Asia will be an entirely different place very soon due to the fallibility of others who try to outsmart the World. As you and me are aware a Normal and Steady Hand is the sure Way to Success. Not the bluster and hot-air BLUFFOLOGY which would go away in a whiff as it is now shown by facts and recorded history.

    Willy-nilly Tun, without boasting and bragging about your brilliance and courage, you will play an important role not only as the ARCHITECT OF NEW MALAYSIA BUT ALSO TOGETHER WITH MODI, ABE AND XI AS THE ARCHITECTS OF NEW ASIA BEING FROM MALAYSIA WHICH STANDS ASTRIDE IN THE MOST IMPORTANT CHOKE POINT OF ASIA IF NOT THE WORLD.

    And together there is every possibility of the formation for the very first time a GIANT TRADING BLOC OF NON-WARLIKE ASIAN NATIONS. Who could foresee this not too long ago, Tun ?

    There is no other Way but YOUR WAY to group together for SURVIVAL AND GROWTH in peace and harmony for all our peoples which grew out of a little seedling called New Malaysia into a New Asia !

    Things will move fast from now on, Tun ! You are already in the cockpit with the Greats Modi, Abe and Xi from ASEAN with 400 Million to make up a GiANT ASIAN COMMON MARKET OF 3 BILLIONS in time. UK will join too !

    It’s a wonderful World, Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah ! Smile widely and broadly as always !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ! Man proposes. God disposes.

    Meaning when i see any contestants bearing the face of mubarakchan, then, i just ignore, and vote the other party, right?

    As saying goes, silent is gold.

    For those who started name calling, they already loose out before next ge is called.

    P/s; once the public trust is betrayed, it might not be able to earn back no matter what they do. Presidents come and go, but party remains.

    Tun

    Saturday mornings are slow and lazy ones for me without having to ferry my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan.

    Surprisingly, I turned on the TV for Aljazeera in the expectation of viewing a heralded juicy and spicy interview.

    But what I saw were the Prime Minister of Japan Abe and his Chinese counterpart Li Ke-qiang inspecting the stately lines of elite troops outside the Hall of the Peoples of China. This is significant as it was reported that no Japanese Prime Minister had visited China its immediate neighbour for 7 years and that a huge Japanese delegation accompanied Abe on this momentous journey.

    As you have rightly said that a week is a long time in politics.

    With the present of international trade turmoil, nations big and small cannot wait for events to come to their door-step. As these 2 nations, Japan and China are dynamic and positive in their outlook and actions, I expect events on trade concerning them will move fast and furious with no political holds barred.

    This is an event worth to be closely monitored by Malaysia and her ASEAN counterparts because this rapport or détente may lead to a bigger trade event within 2 years. Maybe it is worthwhile to send our Foreign Minister gallivanting to Tokyo and Beijing to find out what is the latest for Malaysia and ASEAN.

    I see only goodness will come out of all these to-ing and fro-ing between these major players in Asia. At the end of the day ( who knows? )even India might be in a huge ASIAN COMMON MARKET BLOC OF 3 BILLION DYNAMIC AND HARD WORKING PEOPLES WHO PRACTICE ASIAN VALUES AND CUSTOMS !

    As the most important leader in ASEAN, Tun, your role in this game of thrones is significant because our beloved Malaysia is now ONE OF FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA. THIS IS A HUGE THING. And I am aware that you think deeply and BIG !

    Not only that, this significant and important role of Malaysia as led by her Prime Minister was thrust upon us without our asking after the fall of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which Leadership had ALREADY SIGNED TO DELIVER OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT TO SINGAPORE AS SINGAPORE’S SLAVE COLONY VIA THE LEE KUAN YEW CREATION TPPA/CPTPP.

    Further, according to the Sarawak Report today, the same Leadership had arranged to sell off Malaysia to China through the machinations of the young fat boy of no repute. But Man proposes. God disposes.

    Your brilliance and courage brought back our beloved Malaysia to its scintillating heights arising from her wonderful ancient peoples who lived in peace harmony and unity for centuries, the strategic geo-political location of Malaysia and her bountiful natural resources – right in the middle of South East Asia and its countries known collectively as ASEAN with 400 Million industrious and peaceful peoples.

    Most importantly, Malaysia stands astride 1,200 miles end to end as the most important choke point in the World. A country like Malaysia should be friends with all and sundry equally and fairly. A good example is Switzerland who maintains her neutrality to a T through all Wars !

    Thanks to your brilliance and courage, Tun, all good things seem to gather with each other currently. This is good for our Nation having been battered and robbed, ( Worst than the Rape of the Sabine women of Ancient Rome) by Leaders who were supposed to lead us towards a better Life for all. But they did nothing between 2004 to 2018 but only enriched and enjoyed themselves at the Rakyat’s expense. Let Justice and Fair Play prevail over those who BETRAYED THE RAKYAT’S TRUST now and forever.

    Malaysia through her vicissitudes and by accident have now have the essential ingredients to build a unique Nation in our own style and effort known as Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias. We do it our Way, your Way, Tun, slowly, firmly and consistently taking due care of all the different views and inclinations of the Rakyat amongst us in our slow but steady march towards our National Goals in Unity.

    To this end in building our Nation and without forgetting the basic tenets of our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak’s Vision and his NEP.

    Tun, we Malaysians cannot fail and must not be tripped up by small-minded people creating little hiccups. Some like the Chinese looking mangy dog which barks YUP! YUP! YUP! resident in your distinguished Blog.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! A New Malaysia for all the Rakyat.

    Salam

    I sempat baca nasib Utusan Malaysia dan Malay Mail. Sad.

    I teringat masa zaman I muda, nak cari kerja beli Malay Mail. Later on ramai nak cari kerja beli The Star. Masa tu paper The Star punyalah tebal. Hingga ada reporter The Star kata, boleh letak semua tempat dalam rumah hahaha

    Yes indeed, sekarang semua pun e-paper. Dulu kalau orang bawak paper NST ke kedai kopi, adalah golongan professional. Those yang beli Utusan, adalah orang UMNO.

    Walau ada internet, I rindu juga printed copy newspaper. I beli seminggu sekali. Papers yang I beli The Edge atau The Star. Because of the business news. Bila lama sikit I boleh guna bungkus barang.

    I’m sad but all the best to orang surat khabar, I hope you can survive in this era of e-thing!

    The following headlines this morning deserve some attention, thus :-

    1. ‘ More people will be charged.’

    2. ‘ It’s not revenge ‘

    3. ‘ 1.4 Million living in poverty in Singapore.’

    These headlines are the true reflections of the current events of the day.
    Headlines which no one in his or her right senses expect to happen at the beginning of our adult lives, anytime longer than 21 years ago. And now every morning, we are forced to read these unpleasant news from the media as we slurped our teh tarik.

    On the one hand, the political news showed the failure of an Established Government with its Leadership completely corrupted and decadent due to the complete loss of control of our Malaysian/Asian values. The chronology I would attempt to relate as I operated at the ground level most of the time.

    On the other hand, the 1.4 Million living in poverty in Singapore shows the failure of utter dependence on the GDP without regard to the reality of Life on the ground. The whole satrap was governed by statistics recorded on paper and governed by strict conventions.

    1. ‘ More people will be charged in Court ‘ and 2. ‘ It’s not revenge.’

    First I noticed the change amongst the Chinese artisans in the early 1980s as they moved from quality skills to money grabbing. It began as only a tiny stream but by the late 1980s on onwards these became a flood. If their intended actions were extrapolated to the events which happened in MCA from the mid-1970s onwards, one understands why this was so.

    The MCA Leadership was encouraging the Chinese to counter the just acquired Sime Darby by Malay interests. This call to rally was a FAKE CALL WHICH WAS RAISED ONLY TO BENEFIT THE POCKETS OF THE MCA LEADERSHIP.( WITHOUT SIME DARBY THERE WOULD BE NO RICH CHINESE TODAY.) One of whom could remit S$ 100 Million to his girl friend’s account from Singapore to Hong Kong in 1984 after 7 years in politics. My friend remitted the money for him. The top Malaysian Chinese political echelon got away with the cream. The Chinese proletariat was left with the dregs. This cruel deception by the MCA Leadership could only end one way by misleading its constituents and supporters – a complete political defeat on 9 May 2018.

    But those in Power now will soon discover that Malaysia is a small country where things do not appear what are apparent. Everyone says Yes ! and avoid saying No !

    What I have described is only one small part of a big equation which hangs the all important Malay led Government, its Establishment and elites without which NOTHING MOVES IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. And the headlines these days are ALL ABOUT THESE IMPORTANT DIGITS IN MALAYSIA’S EQUATION !

    How many Malaysians noticed there were no protest groups gathered in front of the Courts as the recalcitrants appeared but only their supporters ? I consider this is a strange phenomenon on the part of all those Bersih etc demonstrations which occurred for years and years. Where is the zeal and fervour to do good ? All seemed quiet and satisfied that Justice had been done but it had not been done yet because as all good and sincere politicians will tell us Politics is a Life long sacrifice and struggle.

    If we the Rakyat forget about such titanic and seismic upheavals which happened only recently in our Government and Society, then there is every likelihood what nearly killed us all and turned us into a Slave Colony of Singapore will very likely occur again.

    And this time 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat was fortunate due to the brilliance and courage of just one person, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who fought for justice and fairness and turned the tables on the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government which Leadership was so weak that it did not know its generals, colonels and lieutenants were unwilling to sacrifice and fight a battle WITHOUT A CAUSE which was based on Money, Money, Money !

    As a close bystander of events, I call relate that the first cracks in morality and ethics began in Sime Darby which sold its Nova Scotia estate in north Rawang to a MCA leader for only RM 4 Million in 1990 WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE BOARD OF CONSOLIDATED PLANTATIONS.

    I asked why. I was told since the sum of RM 4 Million was less than 2% of its total assets, the sale was not reported to the Board.

    I knew why it was not reported to the Board. The Proposed North-South Highway ran through the property. This ex-Sime property was shuffled to one listed company and then finally ended up at RM 88 Million with Talam and Selangor Perangsang which turned it into a tropical slum.

    I was asked to resign when I objected to the purchase by Sime Darby of the pondan oil palm estate in Sabah (which no one wanted for 20 years) at RM 32 Million from the owner of dubious repute. After my forced resignation in 1992, Sime Darby went on to purchase dubious small businesses like Jiffy condoms, LAC refrigerators, Sandestin Golf Resorts in Florida to train Malaysians to serve in hotels (even though MARA had done this since 1966). All lost money. But the killer was when another dubious character offered to prop up the Singapore-KL Stock Exchange using the Sime Bank. This stupid action bankrupted Sime Darby for the first time in 1996 for RM 1.2 Billion. No one was charged. No one was jailed. The same set of Management now with a Board full of ennobled Directors carried on regardless and bankrupted Sime Darby again in 2010 for RM 2.1 Billion. Again no one was charged. No one went to jail. All at the Rakyat’s expense. These Sime Darby events drew the attention of interested parties who would do more when they came to POWER.

    The reason why I produced Sime Darby as a prime example of corrupti0n is the FACT THAT SIME DARBY BEING THE TOP CORPORATION SHOWED TO THE REST OF THE ELITE THAT CORRUPTION IN CORPORATE CIRCLES IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT PENALTY ! In other words, CRIME AND CORRUPTION DOES PAY !

    Hence, as soon as our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired, it was full bloom CORRUPTION in the GLCs all round. Then, this led to the ruling P0LITICAL LEADERSHIP WHO SAW WHAT THEY CAN DO ALSO IN MONETARY TERMS which were far bigger than those CORRUPTIONS IN SIME DARBY AND THE GLCs.

    And at the end of the day, we see the headlines today,’ MORE PEOPLE WILL BE CHARGED IN COURT.’

    Sorry to say, all began with Sime Darby in 1990 with the secret sale of its Nova Scotia estate to the ex-MCA leader without the approval of the Board of Consolidated Plantations. And how much did the executives get ? Probably not more than a few hundred thousands of ringgits, stupid.

    This little Sime Darby corruption of 1990 caused the ex-Prime Minister and his closest associates to be charged in Court. Man proposes. God disposes.

    We have the Rule of the Law in this country. There is no reason why there is NECESSITY TO TAKE REVENGE ON ANYONE. And in current events, nearly a whole Establishment of Government and their families and nearly 100% of the elites except for the 40 year old Christ’s (College) man were involved in a GRAND CORRUPTION AND EMBEZZLEMENT together with a fresh faced boy of no repute ! It’s ridiculous to say the least !

    And as for the 1.4 Million living in poverty in Singapore, this adds up Lee Kuan Yew’s Failed Policies of Fables and Foible of 48 in the list !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Life, political or otherwise, is like a game of snakes and ladders, Tun !

    It is remarkable how many mindless Chinese who used to be the Opposition support their perceived Honourable Ministers as those who can do no wrong so early in the political game. Here are what they support blindly arising from their remarks in the Facebook.

    1. Minister said that in future Malaysia’s rubber exports will boost our exports. My comment was that she was out of date. A chorus of support for the Minister.

    2. The same Minister said that tsunamis sonic buoys would be set-up throughout the country. My comment is that it is a waste of money and time which could be put to good use elsewhere. In my 101 years age, I experienced only one recent tsunami. Tokyo had the Kanto Earthquake in 1921. Look at the historical records for Malaysia. Another chorus of ill-mannered comments on my sincere comments. These Chinese are quite dull if I may say so.

    3. A Minister wanted to reduce the standards of entrance exams into universities for the rural folk. My comment was that instead of being iconoclastic why not up-lift the standards of the rural students by giving them special tuition, time and lodgings in urban areas like what the British and later Malaysians Governments did ? Instead of upsetting the entrance standards to the ire of the academics and undergraduates already in place ? There were some really funny comments.

    4. And a few more Ministerial remarks which were too frivolous to respond.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! I suppose we all learn on the job with DIY !

    Tun

    How many Malaysians realize that our beloved Malaysia became one of the four most important small countries of the World without much effort but only through the efforts and thinking power of just one person, a brilliant and courageous Leader, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    And how many Malaysians realize that Lee Kuan Yew with all the bluster and hot air FAILED to bring Singapore to be something unique and special. At the end of his day, Singapore ended up with common garden legacies created by him which FAILED eg. i) FTs. ii) The Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP. iii) The 2 casinos. iv) Temasek.

    These were Lee Kuan Yew’s contrived legacies for his inheritors after the loss of the huge and profitable Dark Under-counter trades which were mentioned by me previously.

    The failures came up for two reasons :- First, the eternal obsession of Lee Kuan Yew to do down or capture Malaysia as a slave colony. This became a dangerous distraction as it is shown to be today. Second. His thirst for Singapore to be academically the First in the World a’la the Ivy League and Oxbridge. This thinking was out-dated in the rough and tumble World of dog eat dog in terms of everything. In other words, Lee Kuan Yew paid in spades at his citizens expense by being a COPY-CAT.

    In stark contrast our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad proved his originality in ideas for the visionary development of Malaysia during his 22 year administration. No one can call Tun a copy-cat because all his projects were carefully thought out and planned accordingly. These stood the test of time as it is well-heralded.

    In other words, Tun with his intellect and common sense which are naturally inherent in his brain through a good dose of good DNA performed and delivered the vital goods as any leading Prime Minister of any other country could do so. He has always been World Class. Each of Tun’s project was original and derived from his intellectually inherent ideas which originated in his brain.

    But with Lee Kuan Yew who took an entirely different stance by worshipping the lofty temples of Western academia like the Ivy League and Oxbridge, put himself into a mental strait-jacket of being a copy-cat of everything which was Western, lock stock and barrel.

    In other words, Lee Kuan Yew’s brains did not learn how to think even though he obtained high marks at Cambridge but entered a down hill slope after leaving the university’s portals. And for him, it was a life-long down hill slope all the way.

    On the other hand, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad learnt how to think thoroughly and consider all options before he decided what to do.

    Hence, some ordinary folk found him firm and decisive in his Policies which they labelled as dictatorial without considering their own lack of intellect in understanding persons with higher intellect than them.

    This trait of labelling others is common amongst Malaysians to hide their inferiority complex. This also show the common use of insults and abuses by Chinese yellow mangy dogs which bark YUP! YUP! YUP!, resident in this Blog !

    But the main thrust of my comment is to show WHAT A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY LEE KUAN YEW MISSED BY NOT INVESTING IN GOLD WHEN THE PRICE WAS US$ 300 per ounce ! At the material time, he invested in FTs, 2 casinos, Temasek and the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPIPP which all FAILED to deliver. And he lost billions of US Dollars unnecessarily.

    The FTs were like pushing the economy with a string which could not breach 3% GDP 2002 to 2017. Temaeek was ill conceived because GIC was superbly managed for 30 years. At a stroke of the pen, billions of Singapore dollars were invested in mismanaged UBS and other common garden entities. The 2 casinos only provided more overcrowding in the Region. The Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP was a dangerous gamble. It only worked if 100% of the Malaysians were stupid.

    The four aforementioned legacies for the inheritors were thought to be safe by Lee Kuan Yew which did not consider that SINGAPORE MUST HAVE SOMETHING VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE US AND THE EU !

    He forgot Singapore had nothing, not even water.

    Therefore, IT WAS ONLY NATURAL AND POWERFUL FOR SINGAPORE TO INVEST INTO 5,000 TONS OF GOLD AT US$ 300 per ounce despite the World Bank complaints. If Lee Kuan Yew could persuade Uncle Sam to do the Black Trades, hoarding Gold in Uncle Sam’s interest is no problem !

    Imagine Singapore having 5,000 tons of GOLD next to the United States with 7,000 tons, Germany 4,000 tons, France and Italy 3.000 tons, Russian and China 2,000 tons and India 1,000 tons. A real mover and shaker of the World.

    Furthermore, new industries in gold jewellery, banks, bonds, storage, refineries, exchange, etc would be created. A World Hub in Gold in Singapore which would then be worth guarding with a 300,000 strong military which is now only guarding peanuts.

    With Singapore’s skills in BLUFFOLOGY who knows whether Singapore’s Gold is in Singapore or not. Or whether it had really 5,000 tons more or less.

    All in all, 5,000 tons of GOLD in Singapore hands at US$ 300 per ounce would be worth more than US$ 2,000 per ounce NOW. Our beloved Malaysia would have become Singapore’s breakfast every morning. Instead of doing all the sneaky things to make our beloved Malaysia submit to the tiny red dot’s domination.

    Man proposes. God disposes. Fortunately, Lee Kuan Yew missed this GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO DOMINATE MALAYSIA WITH GOLD. He was too smart by far and no one dared to suggest something RADICAL AND POLITICAL TO FIRST DOMINATE MALAYSIA AND THEN THE WORLD AND BE UP THERE WITH THE GREATS WHICH LEE KUAN YEW HANKERED FOR A LIFETIME!

    This Golden Opportunity in Gold for Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore to be really on top of Malaysia is NOW GONE FOREVER !

    At the end of the day, it seems our beloved Malaysia being Normal and Humble willy-nilly is now ONE OF FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA. Thanks to the brilliance and courage of one person, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who only used his logic and common sense. IMPORTANTLY TUN KNEW HOW TO THINK.

    The Story of Lee Kuan Yew and his missed Golden Opportunity illustrates that IT IS NOT THE UNIVERSITY THAT MATTERS. IT IS THE ABILITY OF HOW TO THINK AFTER LEAVING THE UNIVESTIY PORTALS THAT MATTERS. Our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is the finest example of a person who knows how to THINK ! Hence, his long and successful career in MEDICINE AND POLITICS. Now with current events, there are so many examples of people who do not think !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    My previous comment on the Crooked Bridge and Lee Kuan Yew succinctly revealed the root cause or motive of his Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP creation to save his LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS after leading all up the garden path from his life-long self created OBSESSION to do down Malaysia and other derring-dos like a huge military which perennially puts undue pressure on the social welfare services of a purported Socialist Government or State. The poor suffer through the high cost of everything.

    It is thought absorbing to note that Lee Kuan Yew placed great store and priority on the success of his Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP by his journey of last resort at the age of 85 in 2009 to the hot and humid Ulus under the pretext of saying farewell to old friends including your good self, Tun and had tea with the ex-First Lady of the land but not the Kingdom. As far as I know, his siblings and family members avoided visiting Malaysia since 1965 !

    His desperation arose by the realization of the first recession in Singapore at the turn of the 21st Century which underlined the writing on the proverbial wall for Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew’s real Miracle was over with the loss of the Black Trades to the BRICS through the 1990s. A significant movement was his daughter-in-law became the head of a speculative and ill-conceived outfit known as Temasek after a spell in the Chartered Industries which was in the armaments industry, due to a lack of business.

    It is important for all Malaysians to be aware what affected them in the past, and will do so at present and future. With full information and knowledge, then all Malaysians are as one in Unity, Loyalty and Thought. As it is now due to decades of brainwashing being wafted from the South with the assistance of the resources of the State, some Malaysians THINK THEY ARE SMART SINGAPOREANS. It is my duty to reveal all facts concerning the Sovereignty, National and Public Interest of our beloved Malaysia. No more. No less. Let the yellow mangy dogs bark YUP! YUP! YUP!

    I reckon the Third Generation of Malaysians from 1965 will stand in Unity, Loyalty and Thought being unaffected by brainwashing from the South.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our beloved Malaysia will rise and rise with each passing day !

    Tun

    It irks me to read comments about why the Crooked Bridge should not be built in recent weeks.

    I find these comments are like all of us agreed to take-off in a plane and once in the air, some wanted to turn back and land. The Crooked Bridge was approved and agreed to during your last tenure as Prime Minister. Its construction began accordingly.

    NOW ITS CONSTRUCTION IS NON-NEGOTIABLE IN THE NAME OF SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL AND PUBLIC INTEREST.

    What is the rationale for abandoning it by the BN Government which came into Power after your distinguished service in 2004 ?

    The same BN Government eagerly rushed to the International Court of Justice at the Hague to lose the Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh to Singapore in a jiffy when there was no action for over 50 years and after which, its elites published a book to humiliate our beloved Malaysia’s loss due to tango for two. What is so clever about this contrived maneuver ?

    Not only that, they opened the doors of the Khazanah to PAP cadres to pick at the low-hanging fruits which rightly belonged to us, Malaysians. Further to their cause with the full support of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, a hard-core PAP cadre of the same ilk was installed as the Chief Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP and to make him comfortable, he was given a lush Apache Sime Darby contract.

    From 2004, the 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government until a stone felled on their chief think tank. Man proposes. God disposes.

    And much more Singapore connived theft of our Malaysia’s rights and assets were conducted in broad daylight with the best just taken out of the Khazanah without even a thank you very much ! That’s Lee Kuan Yew for you and me Tun !

    Why should Singapore objects to the modernisation of the old Causeway built at the turn of the 20th Century ? Because of Lee Kuan Yew’s objection the present Bridge on the Malaysian side had to be designed as such to modernise it.

    Now this objection came from Lee Kuan Yew who had already deliberately put up the EYE-JARRING DESIGN OF THE SINGAPORE CIQ COMPLEX PAINTED BLACK TO WARD OFF THE EVIL KARMA FROM JB AND MALAYSIA AS BELIEVED BY THIS SUPERSTITIOUS PERSON !

    His claim to fame had left him with 48 Failed Public Policies of Fables and Foibles. Yet, smelly yellow mangy dogs in this distinguished Blog still bark YUP! YUP! YUP! in his support of an ordinary fellow who made 48 horrible mistakes of Failed Public Policies at the expense not only of his own citizens but others like the Free Thais and Malaysians as well.

    Here is a selection of Lee Kuan Yew’s horrible mistakes out of 48 as an AUTHORITARIAN LEADER backed by the West during the Cold War 1948 to 1989 :-

    1. Lee Kuan Yew created the Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communist Political and Socio-economic System imposed on the citizens without their consent. This was supported by his Apparatchiks and the West. The only AUTHORITARIAN REGIME SUPPORTED BY THE WEST AFTER THE COLD WAR. Long ago, the System was called by the Western media, ‘authoritarian capitalism’ or ‘benevolent authoritarianism’ or ‘rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.’

    2. Lee Kuan Yew’s epic decision on the 2 Child Family Policy in 1972 was the ONLY ONE ever undertaken by a leader in this World. It was inhuman. Not even Hitler thought about it. Any one with scientific training would have abhorred this cruel Policy which ran counter to the all time classic of scientific thought as propounded by Charles Darwin in his ‘Survival of the Species’ in 1885 ! Lee Kuan Yew intended to create ‘geniuses’ like him and his wife. It is now proven he was no genius but self-narcissism and obsession promoted by the resources of the State of Singapore with his 48 mistakes. For over a decade, the 2 Child Policy brought untold sufferings, suicides, divorces, mental breakdowns, enforced sterilizations, emigrations, abortions etc which were enforced by official statutes like Income Tax to force the compliance of this cruel Policy. This thoughtless 2 Child Family Policy’s result can be seen to-day with 3.2 Million locals, 1.2 Million FTs and 800,000 PRs of which there are only 900,000 Chinese males aged 21 to 50 ! Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population. 2011. In a dynamic, competitive and tumultuous World, what can 900,000 Chinese do for Singapore’s future ?

    3. Lee Kuan Yew’s venture into the lush Black Trades during the Cold War 1948 to 1989 with Uncle Sam’s blessings, actually distracted him from true Nation building based on Democratic Precepts and Ideals. Not only that, his Life long obsession to do down Malaysia in every way or in more ways than one with his legal specialty of the fine print of dotting the ‘i’ and crossing the ‘t’ put paid to this weakness of his character which brooked no COMPASSION, TOLERANCE OR DISSENT which he believed to be weak traits but strangely in the field of human conduct, would have made him strong like our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ! Those around him became YES men without any check of balance especially after the departure of Dr Goh Keng Swee and S. Rajaratnam, the PAP ideologue. His distinguished wife played a role too in this.

    And what were the BLACK TRADES OF SINGAPORE 1948 TO 1989 ? These were as follows :-

    i) Hard and soft arms. ii) Sanctions breaking – China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East, Africa etc. iii) Toadying up to Dictators. iv)Smuggling – Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines etc. v) Money laundering. vi) Collecting Vietnam War debris free. vii) US R & R. viii) US Military bunkering. ix) US Aid. x) Income Tax Evasion by overseas Singapore companies.

    THIS BLACK TRADE WAS THE REAL ‘LEE KUAN YEW MIRACLE’. NOT THOSE GLITTERING BUILDINGS, GLCs etc. which actually do not produce fantastic revenues like THE BLACK TRADES MENTIONED ABOVE !

    For a very small population of only 2 Million 1948 to 1989 and a honest Government, the huge profits were not only meaningful but thrust Singapore into the First World by the 1990s. Now without the black trades profit, Singapore is left dangling in mid-air.

    The flashy Singapore World of glittering buildings and roads, Changi Airport, reclamation, GLCs, Asian Dollar, etc were the result of advice given to Lee Kuan Yew by the Dutch UN economic expert Dr Albert Winsemius, Adviser to the Singapore Government 1962 to 1984. Human development was the preserve of Lee Kuan Yew who adroitly screwed his own citizens down from 100% in 1959 to 62% in 2010. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011

    After the end of the Cold War 1948 to 1989, Uncle Sam expounded his hegemonic spiel which eventually re-bounded on him, ‘ Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ in 1990. Thereafter, the BRICS moved onto Singapore’s lush hard and soft arms trades which spelt the end of her fizzy 7% GDP. This dropped to 2% GDP by 2002 from which Singapore NEVER RECOVERED AND HER GDP COULD NOT BREACH 3% for 15 years, 2002 to 2017 ! THIS IS SINGAPORE’S DILEMMA TODAY ! Man proposes. God disposes. Never harm or injure others if a person wants to sleep well at night. LEE KUAN YEW HAD BLOOD ON HIS HANDS WITH THE ARMS TRADE.

    In 1978, I came across Singapore’s arms trade by accident. After turning round the biggest corporate bankruptcy Folex Industries Berhad in 1977, I was looking for an investor in the Company. I was introduced to David Hsu the owner of Diaward Industries Pte Lid which produced soft arms like tents, webbing, helmets etc for the military. He told me that his Libyan agent retired to Monte Carlo after 5 years ! He also mentioned that his business was very profitable because people fight all the time ! With the advent of the BRICS after 1990, he closed shop and produced security gates for shopping malls instead.

    4) Lee Kuan Yew paid over the hill (as was his custom when he wanted to reward tycoons or achieve what he wanted) for Thaksin’s business to prevent Thaksin from building the Isthmus of Kra Canal. This purchase split Free Thailand into two bitter factions for the very first time in Thai history to this day. Innocent Thai men, women and children were either killed or injured. This also brought on 2 military coups d’etat. Lee Kuan Yew again has blood on his hands ! His thinking on the Kra Canal is based on 19th Century thinking on harbours. He believed the Kra Canal could finish off Singapore’s harbour trade. He was wrong. Even if the construction of the Kra Canal is announced to-day, it does not mean that the it would be ready tomorrow. The construction takes at least 10 years if not more during which time Singapore being a perfect logistic centre in everything from finance to supplies to managerial manpower would have gained tremendously. But Lee Kuan Yew killed the goose that laid the golden egg for Singapore with his dog in the manger attitude. THIS SELFISH ATTITUDE CAUSED HIS CITIZENS TO BE UNEMPLOYED WITH NO INCOME FROM 2002 TO 2018 with no foreseeable solution in sight. During the construction, Singapore could have not only re-invented itself but also grasp the opportunity which came to hand in the form of the Canal. But 16 years have gone by without any productive or beneficial result to the Singaporeans. As an example, just look at the way the malls and retail houses in the United States are killed by the e-business of the Net. It’s the AIR not the SEA which will rule the next 100 years.

    With only 4 selected examples of Lee Kuan Yew’s 48 mistakes, the results of these mistakes so engendered are not only horrifying but cruel in all respects in the last hold-out of AUTHORITARIANISM AS SUPPORTED BY THE WEST IN DEMOCRATIC ASIA !

    Conclusively, to his mindless Malaysian supporters, the objection and non-cooperation by Lee Kuan Yew on the New Bridge WAS HIS HORRIBLE MISTAKE, ONE OF 48 MONUMENTAL ONES OF HIS FAILED PUBLIC POLICIES OF FABLES AND FOIBLES. YUP! YUP! YUP! so barked the residential yellow mangy dog of this distinguished Blog.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! As we Malaysians say ‘Where got not to build the Crooked Bridge, stupid ?

    When the New and Incorruptible Government took over from the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government on 10 May 2018, I thought that Penang would take proper steps in its developments of the island because of its unique position – firstly as a unique tourist spot and secondly as a catalyst for the development for itself and the Northern States as far South as Perak.

    I also thought given the opportunity with a friendly Central Government, Penang should have a review of its previous endeavours which got it no-where because of its tendencies to ape Singapore which one should consider as an entirely different kettle of fish altogether !

    Further, it seemed logical and practical to me that the State of Penang, Kedah and Perlis should get together to develop the Region socio-economically together because before the arrival of the British in 1779, Penang and Kedah were one. It does not make much socio-economic sense for these two States to do things on their own when they are part of each other, demographically and geographically.

    Instead of competing for the same industries etc, it pays for the 2 States to complement each other as regards all activities.

    My view is that Penang should be developed as the No 1 Resort Destination of the World. Instead of the half hearted and lukewarm activities undertaken towards this goal.

    And Kedah be encouraged to be a top industrial and eco-tourism centre of the North Region.

    A sort of Klang Valley of the North was envisaged.

    With this approach there are lots and lots of opportunities for all to fill in between these activities.

    I see with proper dove-tailing, monitoring, funding and planning, Penang and Kedah become powerful and effective as conjoined socio-economic States.

    There is no necessity whatsoever to dig, reclaim or chop and change the present pristine beauty of Penang Island. The emphasis should be on its mainland portion.

    And as for Kedah, this is the most important State with a huge socio-economic potential given the ideas and the inclination. All the ingredients are there for the taking and the making.

    Why even today there seems to be a measure of hesitation as regards Penang and Kedah, this I do not understand ? I have so many ideas for the development of these two valuable real estates without aping Singapore for now and the future rapidly and cheaply. Yet, things seem to be stuck in the mud somewhere and somehow.

    Let’s us hope tomorrow will be a better day for these 2 States. No more agonising haplessly over floods and landslides with unnecessary deaths and injuries to anyone or dream about the wonderful revenues accrued by Singapore which actually were derived from the arms trades of 1948 to 1990 and not from what we see today, its glittering buildings.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Penang, Kedah and Perlis are the States with tremendous potential with minimum cost if the right ideas are retrieved from the deep recesses of the brains.

    Horror of horrors this morning Tun !

    All the newspapers at PETRONAS and Shell were sold out in Malay, English, Chinese and Indian languages. A sign of the times Tun !

    What caused this sell-out of the papers ? Was it the great Penang land-slide or the great menu of CBT, money laundering and bribes as alleged by our ex-DPM.?

    All in all, I could see the look of incredulity in the face of some fellow citizens around me. Whatever was the cause of this silent uproar in the minds of the citizens, one thing which is uppermost in the minds of all must be the question. Who is next ? Man proposes. God disposes.

    There were so many times in my Life that I thought about how many of us could be the PM or the DPM or even a YB ?

    Positions which some hanker for throughout their lives. The privileged person in such an honourable position must surely presents himself in the most acceptable manner as were possible. And not have the mind-set of a jaga kereta who is just as honourable as anyone else, with all due respect !

    But our beloved Malaysia between 2004 to 2018 seemed to engendered a whole generation of elites with the minds of jagas kereta – money for services rendered in all forms and manner.

    How could such a dastardly mind-set happened in a supposedly mature and progressive Society like our beloved Malaysia independent since 1957. Her progress was as smooth as could be from 1957 to 2004 after which ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE AS REGARDS SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, PUBLIC INTEREST,SPIRITUAL VALUES, ETHICS, PROPRIETY, STANDARDS, INTEGRITY, HONOUR,ETC.

    This spelt the complete collapse of an established Government which was in existence for over 60 years. Fortunately, we have a responsible, courageous and brilliant Leader in the form of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad or else our Malaysian Goose would have been properly cooked by Singapore via the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP and eaten up by China for breakfast.

    What had happened to our beloved Malaysia between 2004 to 2018 was astounding in historical terms !

    When journalist from straits time asked the late mr lee on what he wants to see singapore to be in 50 years from now, he answered immediately with ‘ by that time i am death’.

    If he had choice to choose again, i think he will not want to be the prime minister of singapore again because thats hard work, huge responsibility and lots of sacrifices needed to be made.

( He was also last in the important and professional Bar Finals exams London.

    This afternoon the screen of my computer exploded with the seismic force of a 9.0 earthquake with the multiple revelations of the malfeasances of the 2nd highest leader in the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government as charged in Court.

    THIS SI A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO STOP ONCE AND FOR ALL THE OPEN AND CRASS BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION OF THOSE IN POWER BY TAKING BACK ALL THE CORRUPT MONOPOLISTIC FRANCHISES ONCE THE COURT HAS RULED ON THEM AND RE-TENDER OPENLY.

    It is only proper in the name of good governance like Japan that the corrupted franchises be re-tendered openly on an even level playing field so that in the name of justice and fair play all entrepreneur are equal in the competitive World of business.

    As we can see now clearly that only those who are prepared to pay the big bucks not only gain access but acquire precious monopolies for prices FAR BELOW THE FAIR MARKET PRICE Because if an open tender had been undertaken by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, A FAR HIGHER PRICE WOULD HAVE BEEN ACCRUED TO THE BN GOVERNMENT. But in this case, an individual was alleged to have pocketed the money in return for the granting of the monopolistic franchise – just for a few miserable bucks which reflect the pastoral minds of some !

    THIS IS THE REASON WHY ALL DEMOCRACIES DO NOT DO BUSINESS AND ALL PROJECTS ARE TENDERED OPENLY AND TRANSPARENTLY. No GLCs for them !

    The New and Incorruptible Government should take back all the corrupted franchises once the Court has ruled on the cases and re-tender openly.

    THIS IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTAIN CORRUPTION WHICH IS NOT TO BE MISSED TUN. Because in future, the bribers would have to think not only once but twice before BRIBING A MINISTER CHEAPLY FOR A MONOPOLY and lose all at the next GE. It is worth considering, Tun ! Maybe the recalcitrant companies are permitted to re-tender too which means MORE MONEY FOR THE GOVERNMENT OPENLY.

    The more I think about the Crooked Bridge as labelled by Lee Kuan Yew the more I am convinced that this half built and abandoned New Bridge which was aborted by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government at great expense and at the behest of little Singapore SHOULD BE BUILT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

    NO NATION WORTH ITS SALT CAN LIE DOWN AND BE TREATED LIKE THIS. Like a eunuch !

    A tiny isle telling a Giant to give up the ghost AND BE MADE A LAUGHING STOCK AT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S EXPENSE. Like this we look stupid in the eyes of the World.

    NO SELF RESPECTING NATION IN THE WORLD WILL SUBMIT TO SUCH SELF-HUMILIATION IN CONNIVANCE WITH OUTSIDERS. It’s Treason.

    Where else but Malaysia ? And self-admit to the pandering of others that the bridge is wrong when in fact IT IS NOT WRONG BUT CORRECT ? Stupid on all counts.

    Where is the Sovereignty and the National Interest ? In this particular case, the Public Interest in the smooth use of the New Bridge.

    BESIDES, THE ABANDONED REMAINS OF THE HALF-CONSTRUCTED STRUCTURE CANNOT AND WILL NOT AND SHOULD NOT STAND AS A LAUGHING LEGACY OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME. The Rakyat will not permit.

    It is disgraceful and thoughtless for any true Malaysian to be against a properly designed New Bridge for Public use and not for the use of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who understood the true meaning of SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST AND PUBLIC INTEREST.

    The crooked design was forced upon Malaysia by Lee Kuan Yew’s intransigence !

    Yes Tun ! No one in the World with any sense and logic can LAUGH AT THE CROOKED BRIDGE LABELLED BY LEE KUAN YEW AS SUCH. Once its up, the Crooked Bridge becomes his 48th Mistake in his Failed Fables and Foibles of Public Policy INSTEAD OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S ! Who laughs last, laughs best ! No more. No less.

    Buat jasa kepada negara mesti ada special title?

    Jika macam ini semua pengundi pun layak dapat special title, betul tak?

    Even the richest men and women do not want to be associated to these titles, entah kenapa mereka kena ada special title ini.

    Mereka tak takut orang bawah mereka pakai title ini to cheat ke?

    Dulu dah banyak kes macam ini berlaku, and by looking at the sifat local politicians, all they care is to get titles so easy to get grants minus hard, wise or smart works for self worth development kut.

    Tun

    These few mornings were dull and desultory with hardly a whiff of wind in the firmament. But as I am always exceedingly happy and contented like you Tun, I had more on my plate which is the forthcoming weekend when I could snooze a few more hours than weekdays. Such is Life for all of us.

    Sometimes, I wonder why some people grabbed so much money which they have no time or attention to spend properly given their superficial intellect which forbids them from appreciating the finer things in Life which is not cheap diamond trinkets, yachts, jet planes, Manhattan condos and the like.

    If I had that sort of money, I would have purchased Harrods, or buy a stable of race horses and compete in all the important Gold Cup events in the World, from Melbourne to Ascot, or a Rembrandt or a famous hotel in Paris, or buy up the Rolex Group too instead of buying 10,000 Rolex watches and find difficulty in housing them or engage a British Royalty to be my PR person or but the most valuable Islamic artefact in the World or if I have a sweet tooth, Lindt would be on the top of my wish list or Burberry’s which makes expensive handbags as well and the list of high class houses of luxury goods is endless.

    But it is a great shame, Tun, that at the end of the day, those Malaysians with mountains of cash turned out to be quite ordinary and culturally illiterate by buying the run of the mill items or common garden stuff which they thought was high class.

    For example, in the early 1970s, I visited a Singaporean billionaire’s office. I found him and his relatives were pouring over packets and packets of yellow diamonds from a Jewish diamond dealer. My friend said, ‘ Buy some these are cheap.’ Yellow diamonds are the cheapest in the field. I smiled and asked him why he was stocking up on packets of cheap yellow diamonds. His nonchalant reply was that the yellow packets of diamonds were for the wives of Australian politicians in a place where he had business interests. It is a small World, Tun ! It is no fairy tale as one fake Chinese looking type with a fake pseudonym once remarked because the specimen was jealous.

    And what headline for you and me Tun ? Nothing much to talk about as the business of Government and governing get into its NORMAL strides.

    As usual when there are fresh faces, there will be fresh remarks of one kind or another. Remarks which are sometimes at cross-purposes with the main stream Leadership.

    This struck me as the neophytes seemed not to realize that they are no longer in the OPPOSITION. This trait can easily be detected in the hasty rush to speak via the media to state their case. And the following day, they retract what they spoke the previous day without blushing or regret.

    These neophytes are very fond of seeing their photos in the press as could be discerned. Maybe they should spend time to study how their Ministries work and how the office boy stick stamps on envelopes and tracing their organizational chart upwards to their lofty Ministerial heights at the beginning of their tenure before they lose control of everything like the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    It was the free flow of comments on the Crooked Bridge and the Third Bridge which caught my eye.

    Sovereignty, National Interest and Public Interest govern the construction of the New Bridge. No more. No less. It was approved long ago.

    The Third Bridge does not merit any attention at all because it crosses shipping lanes which require expensive tunnels or lift bridges which hamper traffic. Besides, the Third Bridge is located in sparsely populated regions in both East Johor Baru and East Singapore. Economically, it is a NON-STARTER FOR THESE IMPORTANT REASONS. It is not even a moot point.

    You are correct Tun, the New Bridge serves a useful purpose for the general Public. And to counter the ghastly black of the Singapore CIQ Complex, the New Bridge should also be painted black to match its opposite counterpart ! It’s not tit-for-tat. It’s aesthetic design for harmonious purposes and reasons.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ! Sovereignty and National Interest should be engraved in the hearts of all Malaysians especially those who lead us for NOW and the FUTURE.

    If mubarakchan is still not happy with the syllabus of jenis kebangsaan, no worries.

    He can always send his children to study in international schools or overseas what since he thinks sekolah jenis kebangsaan is not up to his standard, atau selera.

    If he and his buffologists still stuck in this pariah, oops, sorry i mean cheap money sense mentality by complaining water, electricity, internet, healthcare and education that parked under welfare are not good enough though it is very affortable, then, he should move and live rural kampong area whereby everything is cheap and, percuma what.

    Whether tdm likes it or not, ktm, monorail and lrt would be merge under mrt to increase efficiency to bring down the operating cost so that the image of public transport is seen as well position and well planned at par with world standard, bukan macam masak sotong rojak mamak.

    Synergy effects always work, but when this effect is being exploited politically base on race and religion issue didendangkan parti2 politik contohnya ikat perut, yup, the complaint of habuk pun tak ada will become a reality.

    You are absolutely correct when you said that Malaysia does not need Singapore’s consent to build the ‘crooked bridge’.

    It is indeed surprising that some Malaysians are not aware of Sovereignty and National Interest. Maybe they are ignorant on the meaning of these words, Then, it is time to teach the young the true meaning of these words instead of wasting time talking about the colour of uniforms and shoes or bring down the entry standards of our established universities.

    It is so very important that we Malaysians understand these words Sovereignty and National Interest or else we are no country at all. Just a bunch of humanity so to speak. As I mentioned before Nations had fought to the death and refused to surrender when it came to Sovereignty and National Interest for thousands of years.

    Yet amongst us there are some who think our beloved Malaysia is doing something wrong by building a MODERN BRIDGE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL. It was Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew who always took advantage of our beloved Malaysia to make a mickey out of us and laughed behind our backs.

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS NOTICED THAT THE SINGAPORE WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX WAS SPECIALLY DESIGNED AND PAINTED BLACK FOR FENG SHUI PURPOSES AGAINST THE KARMA WIND FROM OPPOSITE MALAYSIA ?

    How many Malaysians noticed that this Singapore Government structure was deliberately designed and painted black to jar the Malaysian eye when looking at it from the JB side of the Causeway ?

    How many Malaysians know that Lee Kuan Yew was alleged to believe in feng shui to ward off the Devil and was rumoured to have a Buddhist priest in tow for instant consultations until the soothsayer died ?

    These might be little things to some brainwashed Chinese looking specimens with fake names and unspecified and dubious beliefs. But the reality is when the whole panoply of the actions and motives of Lee Kuan Yew are studied as a whole from the beginning to the end, the total added up to more than the sum of the whole.

    And yet, the dull types on this side of the Causeway still lap up the brainwashing propaganda or rubbish which kept on wafting to these shores from that tiny isle.

    THE LATEST IS THAT A TINY ONE STREET TOWN WITH ITS CITIZENS GEARED UP TO THE HILT CANNOT BEAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES IN COMPETITIVENESS !

    From its previous No 1 position, Singapore felled to No 2 behind the great United States, a true leader in World competition. In fact, Singapore should have been ruled out of many surveys because of its tiny size WHICH IS EASY TO DO THINGS. Only 3.2 Million indigenous Singaporeans.

    But the crux of all these shows how adroitly Lee Kuan Yew whilst he was alive use the apparatus of the State to project his apparently superb image into the soft and nubile minds of ignorant Malaysians. He never projected himself as getting into Cambridge University by cheating through the backdoor without taking the Open Examination, did not have the requisite Latin or Greek or was over aged by 4 years which was verboten as an entry requirement.

    OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD NEVER PROJECTED HIMSELF AS BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS AND PASSED HIS EXAMS AT THE FAMOUS KING EDWARD VII MEDICAL COLLEGE SINGAPORE WITH FLYING COLOURS. All graduates of this medical college were solid examples of what were the best in medical education. Many became famous surgeons and physicians by passing important exams in London. Lee Kuan Yew was last in the Bar Finals in London !

    By labelling the modern bridge which design was created because Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew refused to co-operate and called it SNEAKILY AS THE CROOKED BRIDGE FOR EASY BRAINWASHING PURPOSES, Lee Kuan Yew tried to use the court of Malaysian public opinion against the bridge.

    LEE KUAN YEW FORESAW THROUGH HIS SUPERSTITION THAT THE CROOKED BRIDGE IS A COUNTER TO HIS DEVILISH BLACK WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX. Once the Crooked Bridge is up, SINGAPORE WILL BE DOWN ACCORDING TO HIS SUPERSITITIOUS BELIEF..

    HENCE, THE FASTER THE CROOKED BRIDGE IS UP THE FASTER SINGAPORE GOES DOWN.

    Therefore logically, Singapore should have co-operated in re-building the Causeway with Malaysia. Lee Kuan Yew again made a mistake.- his 48th !

    BUT LO AND BEHOLD ! OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD CAME UP WITH THE BRILLIANT CROOKED BRIDGE IDEA WHICH COINCIDENTALLY AND BY ACCIDDENT COUNTERS THE BAD KARMA FOR MALAYSIA COMING FROM THE DEVILLISH BLACK WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX. For Singapore these days, all bad things come in a rush ! Man proposes. God disposes. The lesson for all of us is that NEVER HARM OR TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTHERS IF YOU WANT TO SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT.

    For all the reasons in the World, and in the interests of the Rakyat, Sovereignty and National Interest, our beloved Malaysia cannot and will not and should not LEAVE THE CROOKED BRIDGE ABANDONED !

    The sooner the CROOKED BRIDGE IS UP THE BETTER FOR MALAYSIA’S DIGNITY, SELF-RESPECT AND SOVEREIGNTY !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ! Sovereignty and National Interest should always be our watchwords ! The No.1 lesson in Civics for all school-children since some Malaysians are numb-skulls on this important subject !

    A dull and desultory morning without a whiff of wind at all. My fellow citizens are on the highways and byways again driving to the allotted places of work all over the capital and Selangor – the hub of a dynamic country, Malaysia. There were no headlines galore but the usual conjectures on which culprits would be charged next in Court for their crimes. The only headline of interest to me, thus :-

    ” LUKEWARM SUPPORT FOR THE CROOKED BRIDGE.”

    This headline is not at all surprising given the multitude of the expose of horror mega projects which the MOF could reduce one from
    RM 30 Billion to RM 15 Billion. In factor the contractors should be punished for connivance to cheat the Government. However, crooks are seldom punished in this country.

    And in comparison the Crooked Bridge turns out to be cheap for the simple reason that it facilitates the through passage of people through the Immigration Controls which now hamper the flow because of the lack of space and control booths. So much for the technical details. When the Crooked Bridge is built again, the following points should be considered :-

    1. The Crooked Bridge was approved and launched by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Government.

    2. It is a Sovereign Project in the National Interest.

    3. The Crooked Bridge was the name given by Singapore.

    4. The Project was aborted with compensation by the subsequent BN Government after Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s retirement in 2003.

    5. The Project was aborted by the subsequent BN Government which did the following :-

    i) The Crooked Bridge aborted at a great cost in compensation.

    ii) Malaysia rushed to dance the tango after there was no activity on the Pulau Batu Puteh for decades. And the Rocks were lost in a jiffy. A book was published by the Singaporeans to show how clever they were.

    iii) The 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government.

    iv) A nobody could grab 1,000,000 barrels of oil from tight fisted Saddam Hussein and ended at the top of the UN Sanctions List which was circulated around the World.

    v) The famished Singaporeans rushed into the wide open doors of the Khazanah and rushed out again with the Avenue, etc at Singapore Big Sale prices.

    vi) A hard core PAP was the Boss Editor of the UMNO NSTP with a lush Apache Sime Darby contract on his lap to make him feel comfortable in the hot and humid Ulus.

    vii) European socialites were welcomed at the Yacht Races in Trengganu

    viii) NS camps were established to suck money out of the Treasury to build camps, make uniforms and boots, transport personal, cater food for all etc.

    ix) Big bucks were quietly retrieved from GLC palm sludge and factory wastes.

    x) There were some fancy moves at Danaharta.

    xi) Floundering MAS was not spared.

    xii) More Government skyscrapers were built in Kuala Lumpur central than in Putrajaya !

    xiii) GLCs were created from ex-Malay owned companies in the name of protecting Malay interests and making money for the Rakyat. A Communistic move which was only adopted by 3 authoritarian States, Singapore, Russia and China. Billions of ringgits were made by the few who were in control and with no ownership !

    xiv) Did the Rakyat benefit from all these BN activities ?

    xv) 2004. The beginning of the fun and games at the Rakyat’s expense which ended on 9 May 2018 when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was kicked out.

    AND YET THE SINGAPORE LABELLED ‘ CROOKED BRIDGE ‘ TO BE BUILT TO FACILITATE TRAVEL BETWEEN JOHOR BARU AND SINGAPORE WAS ABORTED WITH A HUGE COMPENSATION IN 2004 ! Sovereignty and National Interest thrown out of the window by those who sworn in front of our Yang Di Pertuan Agong to safeguard them, Tun !

    First I agree that the Crooked Bridge should be built given the right timing and priority.

    Second, it was mentioned somewhere here in this distinguished Blog that Malaysia harasses and bully the tiny red dot. Nothing of the sort ever took place since Merdeka. In fact, it was the other way round !

    This is the BIGGEST LIE EVER AND ITS MISINFORMATION FROM SINGAPORE TO COVER HER LONG LIST OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MALAYSIA’S ASSETS FROM 1962 TO THE MALAYSIA KILLER TPPA/CPTPP- 2018. Vide My comments with factual lists in this distinguished Blog.

    Malaysia did nothing which harmed Singapore – 1957 to 2018 !

    Man proposes. God disposes. Despite all the assets which Singapore took from Malaysia, SINGAPORE IS NOW IN A DILEMMA CONCERNING HER FUTURE GROWTH ! Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% 2002 to 2017 ! With inflation included, there was no GROWTH at all !

    Eventually in the name of Sovereignty, National Interest and Public Interest in the Causeway, the Crooked Bridge will have to be built sooner or later ! It’s cheap compared with the RH 50 Billion – RM 100 Billion BN Projects which are now under review !

    Malaysia Boleh ! Sovereignty and National Interest for our beloved Malaysia always, Tun !

  95. mubarakchan Oct 17,2018 9:59 AM

    Tun

    I love to talk about the subject of Sovereignty and National Interest. Two words which have been formalised in modern terms but actually thousands of wars were based on these two apparently innocuous words since the Jurassic Age.

    Men in skins fought over all sorts of material possessions. And we fast trek down the Ages right to the First World War which was fought by the European Powers over Sovereignty and National Interest. Otherwise, their citizens would not have died for the call to duty by their respective Governments.

    Yet, the First World War did not satisfy the lust for Sovereignty and National Interest through the use of naked and brutal military might. The fires of Nationalism burnt bright in Hitler and those who supported him. In fact the whole German Nation did throughout the Second World War. War films on this episode of German history showed the zeal and fervour the Germans sang their National Anthem even after the disastrous defeat at Stalingrad – the nationalism, the brainwashing by the State !

    After the defeat of Germany, the Allies tried to DE-NAZIFY the Germans. They found it could not be done as every single German was NAZIFIED through NATIONALISM.

    Sometimes I wish our Malaysians have a deeper view of World events past and present in order to understand the importance of Sovereignty and National Interest. Then only we all understand the magnitude of the abuse of Power during 2004 to 2018 by those who do not understand Sovereignty and National Interest. This is called TREASON in all countries of the World.

    Which countries are involved in the battle for Sovereignty and National Interest in the past 100 years ? To name a few and they all die for their countries Sovereignty and National Interest :-

    1. The First World War – 1914-1918
    2. The Spanish Civil War – 1937-1938
    3. The Second World War – 1939-1945
    4. Malaya’s Counter-Insurgency – 1948-1990
    5. India v Pakistan – Kashmir – 1949-2018
    6. Palestine – 1949-2018
    7. Korean War – 1953-1954
    8. Vietnam War – 1962-1975
    9 The Falkland War – 1984
    10. First Iraq War – 1990-1991
    11. Second Iraq War – 2001-2002
    12 Afghanistan War – 2003-2018
    13. Ukraine-Russia Tussle – 2013-2018
    14. South China Sea Conundrum – 2013-2018

    And more military tussles will come in the future in the name of Sovereignty and National Interest.

    From 2004 to 2018, our beloved Malaysia was wide open for ALL TO GRAB HER ASSETS WITHOUT CONSIDERATION OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST, THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD TO DO SO. It’s ahameful when a Government is ENGULFED IN ALL SORTS OF MALFEASANCES.

    And unfortunately, only 4 of Malaysia’s Prime Ministers understood the meaning of a Country, a Nation in relation to Sovereignty and National Interest due to their INTELLECT, FAMILY BACKGROUND, EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, VISION AND COMMONSENSE.

    The first was the Tunku who could do the broad strokes to launch a New Nation. The second was the Great Statesman, Tun Abdul Razak, a brilliant thinker and implementer who could sort out the complexities of a young, immature and diverse Nation in crisis, to place it on a launching platform in the name of an even playing field for all. It worked to this day. The third was the solid and tough on the Rule of the Law, Tun Hussein Onn who prepared the pristine platform for our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to push the Nation forward through his dynamism, vision and common sense.

    At this juncture, I would like to point out the importance of COMMONSENSE WHICH IS LINKED TO A PERSON’S INTELLECT. A person can only be born with it. Common sense cannot be acquired !

    Also, it pays to be reminded that the 4 Great Prime Ministers could govern from the apex of the proverbial and virtual pyramid of Power by ensuring that goodies were always flowing down to us the proletariat at the bottom or base.

    BUT BETWEEN 2004 TO 2018, THE GOODIES WERE SEEN TO DEFY GRAVITY BY FLOWING UP TO THE APEX OF POWER LEAVING NOTHING TO FLOW DOWN THE DRY SLOPES OF THE POWER PYRAMID. All the Rakyat were frustrated and in silent anger, and at one go, voted en masse for CHANGE on 9 May 2018.

    IT IS APPARENT THAT A PERSON WHO DO NOT HAVE THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE 4 GREAT PRIME MINISTERS TO RULE OVER MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT, WILL BE A NON-STARTER AND A FAILURE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Together, our beloved Malaysia will go places under your Leadership of the New and Incorruptible Government. IT IS BETTER LATE THAN NEVER ! As the saying goes,’ Our goose was nearly cooked ‘ by the Corrupt and the Uncaring BN Government which adherents still argue they had done the right thing. It is good we have FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR ALL OUR CITIZENS, TUN ! No problem !

  96. mubarakchan Oct 17,2018 6:39 AM

    Tun

    Good Morning to you ! A quiet morning with no drizzle of rain or a whiff of wind in the environment. People as usual are going to work dutifully as always as it has become a habit. Through the years here in this distinguished Blog I noticed there is a lack of awareness of the important presence of the words ‘SOVEREIGNTY’ and ‘ NATIONAL INTEREST.’ No one seems to be aware what these words mean to our DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM AND GOOD GOVERNANCE of our beloved Malaysia.

    The Chinese definitely do not care about SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST.

    Maybe it is because of the communal stance of their Malaysian Politics which they could not move on to a higher plane of NATIONALIST POLITICS. Hence, the political motives of certain political leaders in the 1960s have made the Chinese pay the price of being manipulated by those who are wily but not smart.

    From 2004 to 2018, our beloved Malaysia really paid the price when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the elites fell for the weakness of the flesh and the soft under-belly due to all sorts of temptations coming from many directions.

    Little do they know that a country, like a family and ultimately like a person is always under threat if there is something to be taken advantaged by the outsiders. Hence, I kept on repeating the many instances of our beloved Malaysia taken for a ride by tiny Singapore using the same ancient tactics of old eg. wine, women and song.

    Where else but Malaysia ?

    In my life, I have never heard anything more absurd as recorded of a parasitical in political and money terms, of a tiny country eating off the largesse of another country many times bigger than itself. This is the most unique event in the history of the World !

    Flatteries like abang adek or 5 eyes or private retreats or very hot relationships and Presto ! All the treasures of beloved Malaysia are for the taking by this tiny isle.

    Of course, Tun, we were not born yesterday. But there are many who do not know whether they are coming or going but only focussed on material things. BUT THESE ARE IMPORTANT LEADERS OF THE LAND WITH DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE RAKYAT THEY WERE ELECTED TO RULE !

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS ARE AWARE THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS BEEN UNDER THE MICROSCOPE OF MANY COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD ? Our prominent personalities, their fables and foibles etc are recorded and studied and filed away for future use.

    Singapore was the first to record the behaviour, sexual peccadilloes, wealth etc of our present and possible important personalities. The ISEAS was specially established in 1972 where young and ambitious UMNO types were invited to speak at a forum and the following day, a glowing report on their performance would appear in the Straits Times. Vide. Straits Times Library. Some of them were involved in the TPPA/CPTPP and fortunately Man proposes. God disposes. The satrap failed.

    Nomura Institute Tokyo was established before INSEAS 1972. One of its function is to study the Chinese of South East Asia. To discover who are pro-Japaness or anti-Japanese. Before a young Japanese executive travels to these places, he spent time studying the Chinese inhabitants living in the country to which he was posted to. So cautious are the Japanese.

    These two instances of nationalistic approach in the interest of Singapore’s and Japan’s SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS stretch far beyond the shores of these countries. For a proper and normal Sovereign State, this is the way to go about it.

    Yet on 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia and her political leadership in the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government were not aware of Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST since 2004. A remarkable state of affairs on any count.

    If those had our SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST IN MIND THE CROOKED BRIDGE WOULD NOT HAVD BEEN SCRAPPED WHEN THEY ASSUMED POWER IN 2004 !

    Therefore, the losses in terms of everything which Malaysia lost during 2004 to 2018 were IMMEASURABLE. A Report stated that One Trillion ringgits flowed out between 2003 to 2010. But it must be much more than this.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  97. mubarakchan Oct 16,2018 7:19 PM

    Tun

    Again the CROOKED BRIDGE is far more viable, commercially attuned and Rakyat friendly than to spend RM 50 to 100 Billion building the HSR which runs 99% on Malaysian soil and ferries 99% of the high class passengers to Singapore and the Rakyat left out. One cannot be more stupid than this.

    Singapore spends pea-nuts on the HSR which her costs could be recovered via the lease,not sale of land around the HSR station. HSR IS FREE FOR SINGAPORE.

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government undertook to acquire land and build the huge infra-structures in support of the HSR on Malaysian soil for billions of ringgits of BORROWED MONEY. What a stupid act !

    II IS TIME OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA REGAINS ITS SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST WHICH WERE GIVEN AWAY BETWEEN 2004 TO 2018 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Without our Sovereignty and National Interest we can never become a Nation !

  98. mubarakchan Oct 16,2018 6:46 PM

    Tun

    If the news that the CROOKED BRIDGE IS AGAIN ON THE TABLE, is not fake, I give this Project my full support in the interest of Sovereignty and National Interest.

    Also, outsiders must be taught a lesson that bribery and corruption applied on the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government must not be permitted to get away in broad daylight whether it is tango for two or the TPPA/CPTPP because these tantamount to TREASON !

    Our beloved Malaysia must have pride and be proud of ourselves and not sell ourselves ALL THE TIME TO OUTSIDERS AS SHOWN BY THE WEAK LEADERS.

    With your New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat have our dignity, pride and self-respect again.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Let the Crooked Bridge Project begins IMMEDIATELY for the benefit of the Rakyat !

    Sorry. An addition to my previous Comment as follows :-

    For those who think I am long-winded, I beg them not to read my following chronology of horrible events after your retirement in October 2003. But as the brilliant lady lawyer from Singapore once told me that the news today will be forgotten tomorrow. So it pays to be repetitive on important matters which affect all our livelihood, Tun !

    1. 2004 -2009. i) A pukka upper class yachting event in Trengganu
    ii) Sime Darby sponsored 9 years of New Zealand Ocean
    Racing.
    iii) Khazanah was wide-opened for famished Singaporeans
    to feast on low hanging fruits one of which was
    called the Avenue..
    iv) The 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government of
    the Day. Horror of all horrors.
    v) A nobody could grab 1,000,000 barrels of oil from
    tough Saddam Hussein and ended up at the top of the
    UN Sanctions List published around the World.
    vi) A hard-core PAP cadre became the Boss Editor of the
    UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Apache Sime Darby on
    his lap to ease the rigors of the hot and humid Ulus
    v) The Government RUSHED to dance the tango immediately
    after Tun’s retirement. As a result, our beloved
    Malaysia lost the Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh. So easy
    vi) Most times the Government was travelling as though
    there would be no tomorrow. Jet lag types were seen
    snoozing in the Dewan Rakyat, not Dewan Rumah.
    vii) Even the floundering MAS was not left in peace.
    viii) What we know we know. What we don’t know we don’t
    know.
    ix) NS was cooked up for some to do some home cooking
    via camp catering, uniforms, transport, construction
    contracts etc at the expense of the young children
    even though the school teachers were doing an
    excellent job promoting peace and harmony.
    x) Companies once belonged to Malays were now called
    GLCs. Those between 2004 to 2006 made good, very
    good. The early bird catches the worm !
    xi) My Suit against the Trustees of my Father’s Estate
    taken out in 2002 was dealt as follows :-

    2003. The Judge ruled it was a Singapore Probate
    even though the Probate was emblazoned by
    the Supreme Court of Malaya 1949. He retired.
    2004-6 The next Judge sat on it for 3 years and was
    promoted to the highest Court in the Land.
    2006 The following lady Judge told me to settle
    with the Trustee who refused to show the
    books for over 10 years ! She did nothing
    2007 This lady Judge said the same as the previous
    2008 This lady judge said the Case was too wide
    and asked me to narrow it down within 7 days
    7 days later, she dismissed my case and
    said she was transferred to Shah Alam which
    she must have known 7 days before. Later she
    was promoted to the highest Court in the land
    2009 The Judge told the Defendant, he was ready
    for the Trial if he does not agree to a
    Consent Order. The Defendant admitted defeat
    after 8 years of delaying tactics using
    bribery and corruption via a famous British
    established legal firm which is only in name.
    xii) The Minister of (for) Tourism not only toured
    Southern Antipodes where sheep and kangaroos
    outnumber the inhabitants with her family but
    also using the Rakyat’s money to sponsor at
    great expense a Malaysian Orchid exhibit at
    the upper-class Royal Chelsea Flower Show
    London to promote tourism for London. Her
    Majesty the Queen awarded the exhibit with a
    Gold Medal which rightly belongs to the
    Rakyat, not to the Minister.

    2010-2018 i) 1MDB will not be mentioned because it is so famous.
    ii) This period is the GREATEST CHURNER OF MULTI-BILLION
    DEALS WHICH OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS NEVER SEEN
    BEFORE.
    iii) My young son’s savings in a bank of RM 78 was
    requisitioned on the pretext of his IC not up-dated
    He had this savings account for 40 years. This shows
    the Government coffers were completely EMPTY.
    iv) Only fiefdoms gave out MONEY to the fiefs in ancient
    times.
    v) The lee Kuan Yew creation to save his Legacy,
    TPPA/CPTPP or Malaysia Killer was signed by/with
    those responsible completely in Lee Kuan Yew’s
    pocket. If the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government
    had won on 9 May 2018, Malaysia would have
    seamlessly become a Slave Colony of tiny Singapore
    which would control the BN Leadership through wiles
    and China provides the MONEY from the purchase of
    Malaysia’s land and assets. Malaysia properly caught
    between the Devil and the deep blue Sea or between a
    Rock and a hard place ! No Sovereignty and National
    Interest remembered at all !
    vi) The KTM with huge assets of 25 miles of rail-track
    and steel rails together with acres of land at
    Woodlands and Tanjong Pagar, ENDED AS HALF AN OFFICE
    BUILDING IN SINGAPORE. A sweetheart deal by any type
    of measurement !

    ALL THE ABOVE-MENTIONED EVENTS HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE 2004 IN THE HISTORY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  101. mubarakchan Oct 16,2018 6:36 AM

    Tun

    Your original and illuminating discourse on ‘FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN ASIA’ strikes a chord in those who love and serve their countries without fear or favour.

    A good indication of the state of the Leadership of the Government of a country is to observe how the Prime Minister smiles.

    I am happy to note that these days since 9 May 2018, you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah are both smiling every day. This is good because purported scientific studies have pin-pointed that a person who is happy will have less ailments with a good prospect of living out a full life with longevity to boot. With this demeanour, our beloved Malaysia is assured of being led by a happy and smiling Prime Minister who has all problems under his control under the rule of Law and will not behave like a weak tyrant taking advantage of the Rakyat’s trust.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR THE NEW FLOWERING OF OUR NEW MALAYSIA AND DEMOCRACY AS PRACTISED IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS WE USED TO KNOW IT UNTL 2004 WHEN A GROUP OF INTERLOPERS TOOK OVER and turned the country upside down.

    We cannot have Democracy when the Rule of the Law is disregarded and weakness of the flesh holds sway. THIS IS BACK TO THE LAWS OF THE JUNGLE.

    You rightly mentioned that we Asians are used to be ruled under Kings, Sultans and Monarchs. In other words, the political development concerning such rule when extrapolated in Western Democracy terms could be place somewhere in the 19th Century when Western countries were reverting to the practice of political governance via the House of Parliamentary style.

    It was fortunate that Malaysia began at the outset a Democracy with a Constitutional Monarch. And we ambled along NORMALLY under the Rule of Law as followed by you, Tun and your distinguished predecessors, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn until after you retired in October 2003. The all hell broke lose in Western terms until 9 May 2018.

    With a beautiful hindsight, most commentators here except for those Chinese looking fakes with fake names, can pin-point to MONEY. But it is more to all this mess than MONEY which no single finger can elucidate the root cause of such absurd and gigantic political upheaval of an otherwise NORMAL, PEACEFUL AND HARMONIOUS NATION which was Malaysia. What are the purported factors then, Tun, we may ask ?

    MONEY, WOMEN, GOLF, TRAVEL, LOW IQ, LOSS OF SPIRITUAL VALUES, GAMBLING, DRINKING, PENT-UP DESIRES FOR 22 YEARS UNDER YOUR NORMAL ADMINISTRATION, PEER PRESSURE,LAZINESS, CORRUPTION BY ABSOLUTE POWER, ETC.

    The only answer to the frailty and broken promises of Humankind is that the disgraceful behaviour from 2004 to 2018 was the result of the SUM OF ALL THAT WHICH BECAME BIGGER THAN THE WHOLE.

    In the end, the whole mess went out of CONTROL AND THE 60 YEAR OLD BN GOVERNMENT WAS HAPLESS AND POWERLESS WITH ALL THE POWER AND MONEY AT THE HANDS OF THE LEADERSHIP.

    Something like the Fall of Rome or the Ching Dynasty.

    Fortunately, the conquerors are not vandals or the fallen Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government got raped as well like the Rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome. Fortunately, the winners are civilised, do-gooders and with SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST IN THEIR MINDS TO SERVE THE RAKYAT WITHOUT FEAR FAVOUR OR TITLES !

    Finally, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat and Political Leadership under our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad reached the attainable goal which was once thought to be unattainable – to do the impossible by kicking out the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with its tyrannical ways.

    With the awareness of our SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST WHICH ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND ESSENTIAL IN A DEMOCRACY, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat can now go places and upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan AS ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA.

    The only WAY for us is Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s WAY WHICH IS UP AND UP TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE GREATS. And why did our beloved Malaysia come so far and succeeded IN WESTERN DEMOCRACY TERMS A’LA THE MOTHER OF ALL PARLIAMENTS STYLE ?

    We must NEVER forget the sacrifice, dedication and contribution to the cause of Western Democracy in our beloved Malaysia in the SEPARATION OF THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS IN THE COUNTRY BY THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEING ONN, AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD DURING HIS 22 YEARS ADMINISTRATION. Their caring attitude which flowed from their sincere and honest hearts for the Rakyat. Finally, their FIRM RECOGNITION THAT MALAYSIA OBSERVED TO THE FULL OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS no matter what TEMPTATIONS WERE OFFERED BY THE DEVILS.

    And proudly I observe that only DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA STOOD THE TEST OF TIME AS PRACTISING DEMOCRACIES SINCE OUR INDEPENDENCE OR MERDEKA in Asia. The rest are either to tiny or took the wrong steps at the beginning of their independence to re-establish a fair and just Democracy again without bloodshed.

    THIS IS THE STORY OF DEMOCRACY IN ASIA IN SUPPORT OF OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S DISCOURSE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Keep smiling Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah ! We Malaysians love to see you both smiling which means we are NORMAL IN PEACE AND HARMONY AGAIN !

    This Monday morning is one of the finest for this year. The Opening of the Parliament with the full complement of political leaders of the whole Malaysian spectrum.

    The day began rather cool but as usual I am exceedingly happy that our beloved Malaysia is fast settling down to a NORMAL and steadfast stance once again under your Leadership. What more does one want in our country but a good normal life, a job, a family, children, a house and a car in peace and harmony. All under a fair and just Government of the old and the young, the good and the great. The horrors of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government are slowly being unfold. This morning only one headline struck my eye, thus

    1. NST. ‘ Syed Saddiq. ONE IN 10 YOUTHS THOUGHT ABOUT SUICIDE.’

    The Youths are the flower of our Nation. The future Leaders and Makers of the Land without which nothing will grow and progress.

    It is incumbent on all Governments to nurture the Youths as we ourselves have been nurtured by our forebears – a responsibility which is inherent in all of us Humankind. We pass this Torch of responsibility and duty from generation to generation without prompting.

    But the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government had FAILED not only the Youths but all the Rakyat as well by their gross abuse and theft of the wealth of our beloved country.

    We were given NOTHING AND NOW LEFT WITH NOTHING.

    For example, essential laws like the Trustees Act 1949, Company’s Act 1965,and the Bankruptcy Act 1967 were never really revised and brought up-to-date. The Minister of Law, 3 of them did nothing to revise and bring these 3 essential Acts up-to-date as befits a progressive and modern Nation like Malaysia.

    It was alleged the last BN Minister was famous for proposing to turn the RRI Station at Welwyn Garden City, UK into a sports complex at a cost of RM 350 Million to train Malaysian athletes to World standards by flying them to and fro 7,000 miles.

    The same Minister misled nearly 300,000 young bankrupts the majority of them Malays BY NOT REVISING THE BANKRUPTCY ACT BUT ONLY ATTACHED AN AMENDMENT TO IT. IT WAS ALLEGED THIS WAS DONE BECAUSE OF PRESSURE FROM FINANCIAL INTERESTS WHICH DARE NOT DO THIS IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. A weak, a very weak BN Government. Vide. The Star ‘BANKRUPTCY LAW OUTDATED ‘ Page 25. 25 June 2018.

    And the Trustees Act 1949 had never been revised since 1949. This is an important and essential Act for commerce, middle class families, bankers, lawyers, share-brokers, entrepreneurs. Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia revised the Trustees Act up to the very minute as it is of such great importance. Malaysia had 3 Ministers of Law in the BN Government. They did nothing 2004-2018 – 14 years,

    With the 300,000 young bankrupts, majority Malays, who were neglected and misled by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the 550,000 mentally disturbed Youths as mentioned by YB Syed Sadduq, our beloved Malaysia has a duty and responsibility to these Youths that they are protected, safeguarded and given a second chance in Life.

    With the shameful pursuit of money by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, all care and consideration to help and benefit our Youths were forgotten. The figures which I presented are the results of such a callous BN Government. It is not only Money Money Money which counts but also OUR HUMAN EQUATION OF JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS FOR ALL IS MORE IMPORTANT.

    The 300,000 young bankrupts, majority Malays and the 550,000 mentally ill youths should not be down-trodden by the powerful and in good health. But the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was a non-starter from 2004 to 2018

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Another quiet Sunday morning in Kuala Lumpur where some parts had a bit of drizzle of rain in the early morning. After DSAI victory in PD, all is quiet and relaxed again. And as for those noteworthy, trustworthy and newsworthy headlines, I had to look high and low to find a couple, thus :-

    1. ‘ DON’T NEED A SNIPER TO KILL ME , LIM QUIPS ON SCRAPPED PLAN TO BULLET-PROOF MOF FOR RM 7 MILLION.’

    2. ‘ PREVIOUS GOVT USED UP 11.4 BN JAN TO APRIL.’

    It is indeed astonishing that the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government went to such great lengths to protect those officials in the MOF which Ministry is the most unlikely to be attacked. Not only that the very idea to spend and waste RM 7 Million instead of spending it on social welfare is most uncaring.

    And I do not think the cost is anything like RM 7 Million. If it is the real armour glass, it costs much more than RM 7 Million ! The offered product cost not more than RM 4 Million. A low ranking official must have thought about this and put himself on the line for some baksheesh too.

    As one UMNO Division chief once told me when I tried to make an appointment for my friend to meet a Minister, why he wanted RM 500,000 for the task with no guarantee of success. He blandly replied that he could see the top was making a lot of money and they would not look after him at the end of the day. Therefore, he has to look after himself now as he munched a club sandwich in a 6-Star hotel. His foresight proved to be correct. But he did not get his absurd request.

    Then, there was this brilliant Muslim Indian boy who returned from London and worked in one of the Government’s hi-tech outfits. His Boss requested him to do the Budget which he estimated to be about RM 5 Million. His Boss instructed him to increase it to RM 10 Million. He was very upset and complained to his father who advised him wisely to do as he was told. Thereafter, the brilliant young man returned to London. Corruption was everywhere under the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. 2004 to 2018..

    And the FM stated that the BN Government used up RM 11.4 Billion January to April 2018.

    If this is the case and after investigation that money has been spent outside of the Budget without authorization, there is a case for prosecution regarding theft and criminal breach of trust. The whole Government was responsible for this blatant act.

    No one should be exempted because this sort of behaviour is utter disregard of the Rule of Law and Proper Governance by those who were elected by the Rakyat AND THEY SWORE BEFORE THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG ON THEIR APPOINTMENT. The Rakyat interests must be safe-guarded and protected in a just and fair manner from abuse and malfeasance committed by those in Power.

    If within a few months so much illegal activities were undertaken by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, one cannot imagine how much theft, damage and abuse of the System took place between 2003 to 2018. It was reported that ONE TRILLION RINGGITS FLOWED OUT BETWEEN 2003 TO 2010. Even a minor Government official could amass RM 2 Billion WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Roti canai ke atau capati, mereka tetap indian food.

    Yup, they thought by creating a perfect storm down south, political parties will move up north kut with snap of finger.

    Yup, we are pendatang to them no matter how hard we work, and we could be targeted as the duri dalam daging with their oops lalang, oops cantas.

    The states’ sultan also not worry, who are we the pendatang to worry?

    Therefore dont waste time and effort in hoping that they will accept and respect us as part of malaysia.

    Jika negara ini jadi republican of bangladesh is ok with sibotak and the likes, by all means go ahead.

    But you cannot stop others from being racist when comes to state rights.

    I have been quiet the past two mornings due to the lack of newsworthy, noteworthy and trustworthy headlines since you departed for Bali.

    The headlines were no headlines at all but conjured up as headlines purported to be uttered by some incorrigible liars in our political spectrum. However, as I skimmed over the papers again to get my money’s worth, the following struck my eye, thus :-

    1. ‘ THE HARAPAN MANIFESTO IS WORTHLESS ‘

    2. ‘ GUAN ENG CLAIMS BN GOVT BLEW BILLIONS MONTHLY IN RUN-UP TO GE 14.’

    3. ‘ TOLL FREE TOLLS NOT POSSIBLE.’

    4. ‘ WE MUST NOT SCORE OUR OWN GOAL’.

    As a long-time bystander on Malaysian Politics, what the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government did in its last gasps in Power was not only unforgivable but treasonous to say the least from 2004 to 2018.

    The wanton disregard for our Sovereignty and the National Interest both of which seemed not only have been forgotten but also thrown out of the window. Those in Power treated the Power as Absolute in belonging to them.

    The Rakyat’s money held in trust in the coffers were for the taking by them and their cronies, even those from the famished State of Singapore who came rushing to the hot and humid Ulus looking for low hanging fruits which they found plenty. From the open vaults of the Khazanah along the Avenue to the 4th Floor Boys down to that hard-core PAP cadre with a lush Apache Sime Darby contract on his lap as he sat as the Boss Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP and on to the ordinary fellow who could grab 1,000,000,000 barrels of oil from the tough Saddam Hussein with Malaysia ending up in a tango for two which resulted in losing the White Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh. This is what we know which the Rakyat does not know or will never be known until there are further revelations of malfeasances by the highest circles of the Land during that horrible Dark Era 2004 to 2018.

    If not for the stupid fat boy bungles, all the dirt would never be known because the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government would still be in Power after 9 May 2018 with our beloved Malaysia smoothly enslaved as the SLAVE COLONY OF TINY SINGAPORE VIA THE TPPA/CTPP. Man proposes. God disposes !

    There is an ancient saying,’ IT IS LIKE A SNAKE TRYING TO SWALLOW AN ELEPHANT.’

    Like all Manifestos the PH Manifesto was based on the available facts and information as released the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government whilst they were in Power which was in their hands from 2004 to 2018.

    What is the complaint when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government could not maintain Power even by throwing billions and billions of ringgits as alleged by the FM ?

    This is a good pointer to investigate all the criminal breaches of trust committed by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and bring all the culprits to be charged in the Court.

    Or else our beloved Malaysia will never be able to expunge this shameful episode from our records. And the crooks get away scot-free as usual ?

    If the FM had stated that our beloved Malaysia had run up a debt of ONE TRILLION RINGGITS by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, where is the money to fund the TOLL FREE TOLLS and the rest of the promises as engendered in the PH Manifesto which promises ARE ENTIRELY BASED ON THE MONEY AVAILABLE AS ASSUMED TO BE LEFT BY THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT ON ITS DEPARTURE ?.

    But sadly, NO MONEY WAS LEFT BY THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT as its secrets were revealed after 9 May 2018.

    For the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government to keep on harping on the non-performance by the PH on its Manifesto is just like putting the cart before the horse. WHERE IS THE MONEY BN GOVERNMENT AS THE FM HAS ALLEGED IT WAS ALL SPENT BEFORE GE 14?

    I for one did not get any money. Nor anyone whom I know got any either. Where has the money gone, BN Government ?

    THE WHOLE OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOSS OR CRIMINAL BREACH OF TRUST FOR THE MISSING MONEY IF SPENT OUTSDIE OF ANY GOVERNMENT BUDGET WHICH GOVERNS THE LEGALITY OF ALL EXPENDITURES – Because money was spent WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORIZATION. This is NORMAL GOVERNANCE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Thieves go to jail.

    IT IS HIGH TIME THAT THOSE IN CONTROL OF MONEY DURING THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT REGIME 2004 TO 2018 THAT ALL MONIES MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR VIA THE BUDGETS, IF NOT IT IS CRIMINAL BREACH OF TRUST AND THEFT.

    To those in the know, do not think anyone is safe from prosecution because all are open to prosecution now and any time in the future.

    THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY MUST SHOW ITS PROBITY, ETHICS, STANDARDS, PROPRIETY AND THE RULE OF THE LAWS IF IT SEEKS TO BE RESPECTED BY THE RAKYAT AND THE WORLD.

    A little kitten or Mickey Mouse attitude to CRASS, BRAZEN AND OUTRIGHT THEFTS BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AT ANY LEVEL, HIGH OR LOW CAN NEVER BE TOLERATED because they are suppose to be the ROLE MODELS OF GOOD BEHAVIOUR, HONESTY, SERVICE, SECURITY AND LEADERS OF A COUNTRY.

    And in our beloved Malaysia, these high and mighty folks are alleged to steal the Rakyat’s money by the Billions of ringgits for years and years, 2004 to 2018 ! What a shame ! It was reported ONE TRILLION RINGGITS flowed out of the country between 2003 to 2010 before 1MDB !

    When this gigantic sum of money flowed out and our Ringgit depreciated, IT IS TANTAMOUNT TO THESE CROOKS ROBBING THE WHOLE POPULATION TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AT THE RAKYAT’S EXPENSE WHICH HAPPENED DAILY 2004 to 2018 ! – Because the cost of living and daily essentials went up and up 2004 to 2018 ! It is as simple as this. A blatant misuse of Power giving rise to TREASON !

    Hence, it is appropriate that our good and beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad warningly said, ‘WE MUST NOT SCORE OUR OWN GOALS.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We Malaysians should not be so stupid as to score our own goals because to-day’s World is a very small World. Secrets are very difficult to hide as we can see from recent events.

  106. HBT456 Oct 12,2018 4:42 PM

    Even Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Indian activist, who lead indian independence against british rule, and became the president of indian national congress with history of 132 years, and today it has became a very small political party in india.

    His death is said to be assasination on jan 30, 1948 in new delhi, india.

    I guess i can imagine when the movement of indian independence against british rule in its peak, it must have ruined the family wealty of many indian elites connected to british businesses.

    The rest is history.

    To repeat such horrendous movement?

    Yup wealth does not pass through 3 generation, and what comes around will go around.

    We who live in the centre of Malaysia have a responsibility and duty to the rest of the country.

    For example, here in the capital, we have quiet, equable and fine mornings, most mornings of the year. But sometimes, unfortunate weather hits the peripheral parts of our sprawling country in unexpected ways, like the under-expected storms and flooding in the North and other places. This is where our centre must be strong and steadfast to bear the vicissitudes of our unfortunate fellow citizens with help and succour. This is a duty which all Malaysians are obliged to help and assist.

    Even though, we cruise safely to work or deliver our children to schools in a calm and windless morning, I reflected on the fortunate streams of school-children trooping quietly and orderly towards their class-rooms every morning.

    I also reflected that racism never appeared in the minds of the young until either their parents or peer pressure put this evil thought in them.

    I believe I was saved from this influence due to certain unexpected circumstances which affected my teenage years and escaped from being influenced by my parents or peers on racism. Hence to this day, every person looks the same to me. Besides, my profession forbids such extraneous thoughts or else I become ineffective and cannot deliver.

    Such are the factors which affect any person’s Life with its ups and downs. I always believe in avoiding problems and move on. But there are some who would take up the cudgels and challenge the wind. This is well-illustrated by the ONE AND ONLY HEADLINE WHICH CAUGHT MY EYE THIS MORNING, thus :-

    1. Malay Mail. ‘ STORM OVER MRT2. ‘ I did not see any storm anywhere except in Florida, USA which is now threaten by the Hurricane Michael.

    2. Financial Daily. ‘ IS RM 2B a bridge too far ?’ This does not say anything really.

    For those who are in the know, these headlines refer to the same subject matter being the cancellation of the underground work project which was once signed by the BN Government with the contractors in question. This is the basis of the contractors furore.

    But to add to the above scanty information which seemed to catch the eye and explained nothing, it struck me that IT IS ODD FOR A PRIVATE ENTITY TO CHALLENGE THE WISDOM OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT ON THE ONE HAND AND TRY TO MAKE A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT TO BEND TO ITS WISHES WHICH HAVE NO SUBSTANCE, ON THE OTHER.

    To quote the famous words of our distinguished Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tun Ismail Mohd. Ali who was famous for his integrity and ethics, ” IT STINKS.”

    For the now disconnected Group making just a big fuss, this not only draw the attention of the World onto their purported plight but also raised MANY QUESTIONS AS TO WHY THEY MADE SUCH A BIG FUSS NOT ABOUT THEIR IMMEDIATE FINANCIAL MATERIAL LOSS BUT THE LOSS ONLY CONCERNING THEIR PURPORTED 20,000 EMPLOYEES.

    These folks even raised certain ominous questions to FRIGHTEN THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS TEAM by citing possible legal suits all round.

    I like to remind all and sundry that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his Team were not born yesterday. They already know the hidden reasons behind the FAKE STORM IN THE MEDIA RAISED BY THE INEXPERIENCED RECALCITRANTS. I can guess why. Malaysia is a small in the World of Construction and Engineering. OK ?

    As far as we know about engineering and construction, 1 + 1 must be 2 ! The professional answer. No engineer passes his or her exams by giving 1 + 1 = 4. Which is the ‘open book approach’ as proposed. It’s that simple.

    HOWEVER, THE INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS ENGAGED BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT HAS REPORTED THAT THERE WAS RM 4.19 Billion which could be saved from the Contract. But the contractors still insist ON ‘OPEN BOOK APPROACH’. This is an impossible approach which is NON-PROFESSIONAL AND CASTS A CLOUD OVER THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT IF ACCEPTED.

    Either the suggestion was made without thought or IT IS A TRAP TO CATCH THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT WITH ITS PANTS DOWN SO EARLY IN ITS ADMINISTRATION OR THERE IS A BIG HOLE SOMEWHERE IN THE KINGDOM WHICH NEEDS TO BE FILLED SOMEHOW, SOMETIME ! In our beloved Malaysia, nothing is unexpected. But our Prime Minister and his Team knows BEST to deal with this OPEN DEMAND VIA THE MRDIA FOR BILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF THE RAKYAT’S HARD-EARNED MONEY !

    Wow ! The Consultants worked out for this portion of the rail-works,that there is AN OVER-CHARGE OF RM 4.19 BILLIONS. The Contractors are willing to let go of a huge RM 2 BILLIONS ! TO WHERE WILL THE RM 2.19 BILLION GO or gone if there is no hiccups ? Strange to say this is my RM 64,000 question.

    And by how much did the completed portion was over-charged to the BN Government ?

    An ancient saying, ‘ A big tree catches the wind.’

    In my career I have done most legal and big businesses in Malaysia. But I never wanted to do property development and construction because of its anti-social quirks which I rather kept away. No headaches like this.

    I give YB TONY PUA, POLITICAL SECRETARY TO THE MINISTER OF FINANCE FULL SUPPORT AND FULL MARKS FOR EXPLAINING LOGICALLY AND CLEARLY WHY THE GOVERNMENT TOOK A STAND ON THIS ISSUE. If it does not, no one will respect it anymore.

    THEREFORE FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT NOT TO ACCEPT THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF ITS OWN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS AND BEND DOWN TO THE ‘OPEN BOOK APPRACH’ PROPOSED BY THE CONTRACTORS STINKS OF SOMETHING FISHY WHICH WILL ENSNARL THE PH GOVERNMENT FOR THE REST OF ITS TENURE. And also in engineering 1 + 1 = 2, NOT 4. Hence in Engineering, the phrase ‘ OPEN BOOK APPROACH ‘ or ‘ TRADE SECRETS ‘ is UNPROFEESIONAL AND DOES NOT STAND TO SCRUTINY IN ANY COURT.

    As we Malaysians say.’ Where got trade secrets in Engineering ?’

    Kudos again to YB Tony Pua for stating the OBVIOUS IN HIS LETTER AS PUBLISHED IN THE FINANCIAL DAILY TODAY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! The suggested ‘Open Book Approach’ is a TRAP because the independent consultants have already stated that there is a RM 4.19 BILLION extra cost which could be REMOVED ! Even one Ringgit payment is CORRUPTION as the World sees this today !

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    In the light of the new national car project, I would recommend that it should be an electric or hybrid car.

    1. The purpose of having a car in Malaysia is no more about going from one place to another, nevertheless it is a personalised means of transport.

    2. In the near or not so near future, people will still want their own set of transportation. Thus the demand still there. But somehow the technology need to be updated quickly.

    3. It is also important for us to acknowledge the depleting source of oil and the climate change challenges ahead.

    4. Thus I recommend;
    a. A target for the country to achieve at-least 50% of the cars on road are hybrid or full electric (or sustainable energy) as we are going for the SDG.
    b. 3rd Malaysian/Asian car must be clean and intelligent car.
    c. To spur industry of retrofitting old good car with electric engine. This should reduce the numbers of going to be scrapped cars and itself is a new industry no one endeavour in mass scale before.

    Thanks Tun.

    Best regards,
    fbm

    Tun

    It is a good feeling for me when I am in your distinguished Blog. The feeling of amongst good friends who are not FAKES with bad brains hiding cowardly behind FAKE NAMES like those who only look like Chinese !

    Every morning I am as happy as Punch as the saying goes after successfully ferried my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan. I have always supported and put my children to the Sekolah Kebangsaan unlike some who found that their children could not take the Vernacular Schools and had to transfer them mid-way to the Sekolah Kebangsaan. What happened to those who could not and had to stay behind in the Vernacular Schools. Or just to learn Mandarin or be good at Maths ? I found anyone can speak any language given the time and the inclination. No big deal. And as for Msths., this is no problem either given the same motives. It is all in the genes or a child is a slow developer. At the end of the day, we should by on an even playing field by age 21 !
    After digressing on my happy thoughts, suddenly a gush of headlines poured forth from the venerable Malay Mail. Headlines which are trustworthy, noteworthy and newsworthy to make them interesting, thus :-

    The Malay Mail.

    1. ‘ NEW TAXES TO PAY DEBTS ‘ The Mother of all Headlines this wonderful morning. We pays and pays for the corruption by crooks in HIGH PLACES !

    2. ‘ LIM; GOVT NOT MEANT TO BE IN BUSINESS.’ The very first positive and sound statement. Kudos to Mr Lim.

    Ah Mr Lim has finally struck the right note! The NUB or CRUX or EXCUSE OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT WHICH USED THE GLCs AS A SLOGAN TO PROTECT MALAY INTERESTS AND MAKE MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT.

    In reality, the GLCs were used to make money for those who own no shares or they are not Civil Servants by playing 19 hole golf in Perth, Yunnan, Bangkok etc, casinos, sky-high salaries, expensive cars and restaurants, First Class travel, Board Meetings in London, overseas schools for the kids, palm oil sludge, factory wastes, fake Boteros & Picassos etc.

    This orgy at the Rakyat’s expense WENT ON FOR 14 YEARS 2004 TO 2018 ! It was utterly MAD and CRAZY !

    If not for the stupid fat boy bungle, no one would have realised the HUGE QUIET RAPE OF THE RAKYAT’S MONEY VIA THE GOVERNMENT’S COFFERS – worse than the Rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome – because we all trusted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his distinguished predecessors, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn from 1957 to 2003.

    Little did we realise their successors had NO INTEREST IN THE WELFARE AND CARE OF THE RAKYAT AT HEART ! Fortunately, after the DARK ERA 2004 TO 2018, we have a NEW DAWN NOW AWAKENING !

    A Democratic Government has no business to do business in the Private Sector, none whatsoever. A Democratic Government is to rule and serve the Rakyat by putting up the right infrastructures etc for them to earn a living and make money for the Government to tax which money is used for the Rakyat’s benefits social welfare, infrastructures etc.

    People in high places should not COLLECT 10,000 ROLEX etc or CASH.

    The GLCs were a creation of Lee Kuan Yew by accident and born out of necessity for Singapore’s survival.

    It happened this way. After the 1966 Separation, Dr Albert Winsemius the Dutch UN Economics expert employed by the Singapore Government since 1962, advised the establishment of the Jurong Industrial Park, reclamation etc. At first, the Singapore Government encouraged the traders to become industrialists by founding Starlite Ceramics, Fair Lady Hair Wigs, Eupoc, Far East Levingston, Singapore Textiles (HK), Diaward Industries (HK), Regent Hair Wigs etc. All employed Malay employees. Most failed because of branding problems and Singapore’s tiny market. With a crisis on his hands, Lee Kuan Yew turned to monopolistic government owned activities like SIA, Asian Dollar, DBS, Keppel, Sembawang, NOL, Chartered, UIC, Intraco etc to keep Singapore’s employment rate and revenues afloat.

    He coined GLCs for these profitable Government linked corporations in the 1980s.

    BUT THE REALITY WAS THAT THE WHOLE SATRAP WAS HELD UP BY THE HUGE REVENUE GENERATED BY THE UNDER-COUNTER BLACK TRADES IN ARMS (hard & soft) TRADING, SMUGGLING, SANCTIONS BREAKING ( China, Myanmar, N, Kores, Libya, Iran), TOADYING UP TO DICTATORS, R & R, US AID & PAYMENT FOR BUNKERING OF MILITARY SERVICES, COLLECTING FREE VIETNAM WAR DEBRIS,MONEY LAUNDERING ETC.

    These constitute the LEE KUAN YEW MIRACLE not the often touted glittering buildings and the highway and byways of modern Singapore, the Changi Airport, reclamation, etc which rightly were the IDEAS OF DR WINSEMIUS. To explain by FAKE INFORMATION, lee Kuan Yew deliberately mis-represented what ALL CAN SEE AS HIS MIRACLE AND NOT THAT HUGE UNDER-COUNTER BLACK TRADES AS MENTIONED ABOVE !

    Commonsense tells us why a tiny isle with no human and natural resources resources was not lauded by the Western World for their wonderful achievement ( the smart people are actually in Malaysia ) FOR MAKING SO MUCH MONEY TO JUMP FROM 3RD CLASS TO 1ST CLASS WITH A SIZEABLE MILTIARY TO BOOT ?

    It does not make any sense to me. THIS IS NOW PROVEN TO BE THE CASE WITH THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE BLACK TRADES AFTER THE BRICS MUSCLED IN AFTER THE END OF THE COLD WAR 1990 onwards. This confirmed that Singapore’s GDP never breached 3% 2002 to 2017. This means the deficit of 2-3 % was due ENTIRELY TO THE BLACK TRADES OF LEE KUAN YEW – his Miracle ! No matter how hard Singapore tried with Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP, tourists, casinos, importation of FTs, all manner of hi-tech or bio-tech industries etc, THE REVENUES FOR SINGAPORE CANNOT BE COMPARED WITH THE HUGE PROFITS FROM THE PEOPLE KILLER THE BLACK TRADES OF THE COLD WAR BENEFITTING SINGAPORE 1948-1989 ! This is a fact. It does not make sense for Singapore to make so much money over our beloved Malaysia which has everything including BRAINS. Now it is all very transparent. Man proposes. God disposes. Or according to Balzac,’ Behind every great fortune, a great crime !’

    Soon, Singapore will run out of its fat reserves if the elites still cannot produce the requisite white rabbits out of the proverbial hat FOR SUSATAINABILITY AND SURVIVAL. The writing is on the wall !

    Finally, no Democratic country does business to make money for the people. Singapore could control the GLCs in a tiny place with Lee Kuan Yew’s close monitoring of bank accounts and sexual peccadilloes. Russia and China thought GLCs are a half-way house between Capitalism and Communism. Later RAMPANT CORRUPTION AND NEPOTISM ERUPTED IN THEIR VAST LANDS which lasted to this day.

    MALAYSIA’S LEADERSHIP FROM 2004 TO 2018 ADOPTED GLCs TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES AT THE EXPENSE OF THE RAKYAT – a total waste of the Rakyat’s TIME AND MONEY.

    The whole Nation was held back in terms OF EVERYTHING CONCERNING WELFARE, DEVELOPMENT AND GENERAL PROGRESS WHICH BROUGHT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO HER KNEES. What a shame !

    Just 2 examples out of hundreds or thousands.

    Khazanah invested RM 80 Million in an Israeli bra, undies and lingerie business to make the future comfortable for 500,000,000 Indian ladies which was lost in a jiffy !

    Khazanah invested RM 2 Billion in UBS just to carry Lee Kuan Yew’s legs because Singapore has a substantial interest. This RM 2 Billion was lost in a jiffy.

    Where is the money for the Rakyat’s welfare today with such corrupt and uncaring BN Leadership ? No wonder the Singaporeans respect them who bought respect with the Rakyat’s money !

    3. ‘ GDP TO REMAIN ON GROWTH PATH INTO 2019.’ Malaysia is fortunate to have the PH Government led by our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in place at the right time. Or else, the Malaysians become the slaves of the Slave Colony of Singapore via the TPPA/CPTTA and end up dressed in rags !

    Yes ! The GDP is out-dated in its measurement of the distribution of wealth amongst the populace. Tiny states like Singapore could not be measured accurately in terms of the bottom-most citizens when its Government looks to the sky always. Huge nations like China could not apply the GDP effectively because it is the Policy of the country to look after the poor and too much employment is difficult due to over-crowding in the urban places. China has to modify the GDP to her own needs.

    Malaysia will do well to focus on reducing on our unemployment especially our graduates. This I believe could be achieved in 3 years time or earlier.

    4. ‘ RENEGOTIATED LAND DEALS RAKE IN RM 149m FOR CITY HALL.’ In one instance, so much money is recovered. But this has been going on since 2004 under the rule of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. City Hall’s corruption is legend since the 1960s. Some ex-officers could afford houses in Bukit Tunku on retirement !

    5. ‘ 11 COPS LINKED TO PROTECTION RING NABBED.’ If the PDRM personal are well-looked after like free housing, allowances for families etc, why should they be crooks if their LEADERSHIP sets an example of caring for them ?

    6. ‘ 20,000 STUDENTS STRANDED AS SKILLS FUND SHRINKS ‘. This is bad, very bad. This is the result of RECKLESS CORRUPTION AT THE VERY TOP WHERE THE LEADERSHIP DOES NOT CARE BUT ONLY PAID LIP-SERVICE TO MAINTAIN POWER.

    It is very bad to take it out on hapless children who depends on the Government for their livelihood and survival. Another instance of the loss of our famous traditional Malaysian caring for others who are disadvantaged. Instead, the collection of 10,000 Rolex watches and cash is more important !

    7. ‘ MALAYSIA TRUMPS S’PORE IN TACKLING INEQUALITY.’ This is self-explanatory.

    Malaysia beats Singapore in everything except for their high-pressure cooker Education System which is UNDESIRABLE FOR MALAYSIA. We want to avoid suicides by young people and mental breakdowns with concomitant inferiority complexes and ivory tower types which are useless in an emerging nation. We must deal with such problems in our unique caring and humane manner. No brutal or rough stuff for us, Malaysians.

    We have more geniuses in Malaysia than Singapore which has NONE.

    Or else, Singapore would not be in such a DILEMMA today. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Just yesterday, it was reported that Starhub will sack 200 workers. My relative an ex-banking executive is still a Grab taxi-driver.

    Yesterday, Singapore’s Foreign Minister exhorted his countrymen to respect our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. First, he is just stating the obvious. Our Tun passed his exams in the King Edward V11 Medical School, Singapore with flying colours. Acheh !. Second, our Tun and Malaysia did nothing wrong with Singapore. BUT FROM 1962 TO 2018, SINGAPORE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MALAYSIA AT EVERY TURN, FROM WATER TO SHARES TO PAP CADRE AS BOSS OF UMNO NSTP TO ROCKS TO MALAYSIA KILLER LIKE THE TPPA/CPTPP. Who else but SINGAPORE ?

    The list of instances where Singapore screwed Malaysia is endless so to speak – AND BOTH ARE SOVEREIGN COUNTRIES TOO ! Of course, our Tun should be respected not only by all Singaporeans but all the World too. As a qualified Doctor, he does not TALK NONSENSE without facts.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! I reckon we will be a Malaysian Tiger again by 2020. Thanks to you and your Team. We nearly became a kitten or Micky Mouse for Life or a Slave Colony of Singapore !

    Tun

    We Malaysians are really spoilt people.

    We wake up early in the morning, prepare ourselves either for work or to ferry our children to the schools. And each morning without fail, we are greeted by a pleasant, cool and bright morning with sunshine. Only sometimes, and I stress, only sometimes are we met with a slight drizzle of fine rain. There has never been a heavy downpour early in the mornings unlike the monsoon season in India where it rains non-stop, literally dogs and cats day and night.

    Yes, Tun ! We Malaysians are spoilt to the core by the warm and equable weather with no major disasters like typhoons, earthquakes or tsunamis. And yet our beloved Malaysia was nearly destroyed by our own hands. – the hands which were elected into the highest office in the land !

    I always think back to the close shave which our beloved Malaysia had up to 9 May 2018. AND THE SACRIFICES OF YOUR ILLUSTRIOUS PREDECESSORS THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK AND TUN HUSSEIN ONN.

    It was all 99% hard work by those who decided to unite and line up behind your brilliant and courageous leadership to bring back not only the notion but in practical terms how our beloved Malaysia should be govern on an even keel, fair and just, and without the outrageous corruption and uncaring attitude as perceived by all and sundry.

    And as a result of the collapse of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, every headline in this morning’s newspapers concerns the mess left by them. This morning, it took me sometime to come across a headline which is meaningful and has wisdom. Only one, thus

    NSTP.’ DR M : DON’T DWELL ON THE PAST.’

    Yes, Tun ! We Malaysians have to be reminded all the time that our very existence in this wonderful land did come at a cost. A cost which has to be borne by all and sundry that without being constantly aware of how Malaysia came into being after so many centuries of living together in peace and harmony, all our wonderful mornings could just go up in thick smoke in a jiffy ! In the 1980s, the brilliant lady lawyer in Singapore told me that in our country, the news today will be forgotten tomorrow !

    Your call for all to unite and not base our actions on our lingering thoughts of the past is indeed logical and binding for all of us the Rakyat to unite behind your lEADERSHIP of the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great – A WAKE UP CALL.

    Without the Unity for progress and with the penchant to dwell on the past, we the Rakyat and our beloved Malaysia cannot progress on any terms, politically or socio-economically.

    The 9 May 2018 GE have been decided by the Rakyat on who should now lead the Nation and clean up the corrupt mess or Augean Stables. And it is the incumbent Government of the day, the PH which all and sundry should unite and support and not dwell on the past, as you succinctly stated, Tun.

    As one Tan Sri once told me, ‘TODAY IS TODAY. YESTERDAY WAS YESTERDAY.’

    With a clean slate, the New and Incorruptible Government can focus on the Policies which are focussed on serving the Rakyat needs for now and the future especially with the new locus standi that Malaysia is now one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. And under your wise and experienced Leadership Tun, Malaysia and her Rakyat will go places – upwards towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    We just need a successful National Car Project to finish our New Malaysian tapestry with your iconic signature to sign off.

    We will be up there with the Greats. Not forgetting that there are billions and billions of ringgits of ill-gotten gains to be retrieved overseas from the crooks since 2004 which will take some time. Better late than never Tun ! One Trillion ringgits were reported to have flowed overseas between 2003 to 2010 before 1MDB !

    THE PH GOVERNMENT BY TAKING ACTION EVERY DAY TO RETRIEVE THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS FROM THE CROOKS OVERSEAS, CORRUPTION IS HELD AT BAY OR REDUCED BY REMINDING THE PROSPECTIVE CROOKS AND THE WORLD THAT MALAYSIA HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CORRUPTION. Let the probes and so on be a daily occurrence to stop or reduce this cancer once and for all. A sen spent on this preventive action will save Malaysia and her Rakyat billions of ringgits in future with no headaches !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Retrieve the billions of ringgits home Tun ! Why let this money benefit other countries which do not need it ?

    Good evening Tun

    My ex partner dalam unit trust keturunan Cina agama Christian. I sebut ex sini sebab beliau passed away 2 years ago.

    He was a very nice kind man. I tidak ada masaalah denganya. Balik rumah pun dia sering sebut my name, sampai hari ini anak2 dia ingat I.

    I ingat masa mula2 dia recruit ramai agent Melayu, dia rajin juga argue soal agama dengan agent beragama Islam yang lain. Jadi debat besar. Dengan I taklah sebab dia tau I simple, your religion is your religion, my religion is my religion, we are here to do business, so be it.

    Tapi lama lepas itu dia puji pula agent Melayu, dia kata nak kapal terbang pun sempat sembahyang dulu. 5 waktu sehari sembahyang sedangkan orang kristian tidak.

    Jangan salah faham, dia tak pernah tukar agama, dia meninggal dalam agama yang dianuti. Malah semasa hidup dia rajin derma income yang dia dapat pada sebuah church kecil yang diikutinya. Dia pernah bercita cita nak jadi pastor.

    I rasa soal agama, ada baik hanya penganut yang boleh kritik, agama lain baiklah jangan bercakap cakap lebih.

    That’s all for tonight.

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Mohon izin Tun:

    Saya ingatkan Dr. Mujahid ada kelulusan dalam bidang Undang-Undang Syariah, tapi sangkaan saya meleset.

    Pendidikan Dr. Mujahid Yusof, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri (Agama):

    1) Doktor Falsafah (PhD) Siyasah Syariah (Sains Politik), UM
    2) Sarjana (MA) Pembangunan Sumber Manusia, UPM
    3) BA Bahasa Arab & Sastera, Al Azhar, Mesir

    Maksudnya dia bukan pakar dalam bidang Undang-undang dan Perundangan Syariah. Ish..Ish..Ish…

    Latar belakang pengajian saya bukan dalam bidang Sastera. Maaf cakap, kalau setakat ketiga-tiga ijazah yang Dr. Mujahid ada, kacang saja untuk lulus… 🙂 🙂 🙂 Cuma hafal dan buat penyelidikan sikit-sikit…Persoalannya, adakah hasil penyelidikan beliau menjadi rujukan para penyelidik di peringkat global? Apa sumbangannya kepada dunia? Atau setakat di Malaysia saja ia dirujuk?

    Lihatlah betapa sombongnya kenyataan Dr. Mujahid
    ( http://www.sinarharian.com.my/nasional/mujahid-kesal-sikap-agamawan-1.888999 )

    /// “Yang cakap di media sosial saya tak hairan, bukan tahap kita nak bincang dengan mereka tapi ada yang cakap tahap agamawannya yang dihormati masyarakat. Paling tidak ambillah satu sikap, biar minta penjelasan daripada menteri dulu.

    “Kalaulah kita hormat dia… kalau kita tak hormat dia memang dari awal lagi tanya saja belasahlah,” katanya di Persidangan Meja Bulat: Falsafah dan Tatacara Hukuman Jenayah Syariah Dalam Mencapai Matlamat Rahmatan lil Alamin, di sini, hari ini.///

    Ewah…bukan tahap dia untuk berbincang dengan orang di media sosial? Apa dia ingat tahap pengajian dan kedudukan dia hebat sangatkah? Memang angkuh dia ni…Silap2 haribulan tersungkur di PRU akan datang. Dalam negara yang mengamalkan demokrasi, jangan angkuh sangat.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  118. SSLEE Oct 8,2018 2:26 PM

    Dear PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,
    Please allow me to repost an article I posted in i3investor:
    https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/Sslee_blog/177025.jsp
    Reproduce as below with some editing:

    I was advised by my senior that the best way to understand Scriptures is not in the literal interpretation but read it with an open minded and interpret the many mythologies with reference to the history of mankind. Below is his interpretation on: The Story of Adam and Eve(original sin)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_and_Eve
    Original Versus Interpretation: Doing what comes naturally https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teavjYI9pdM
    For almost the whole of human history, from at least 2 million years ago, mankind has lived by doing what comes naturally, a nomadic life of hunter-gatherer where mankind move around from place to place over the seasons and year following the food trail. Men were hunter (Hunting animal and fish) in a small group and women were gatherer and caretaker of child (Gathering edible items of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds to insects). Life in a nomadic society wasn’t bad as they were in many ways much healthier, stronger and happier as they hunt-gathered just enough of their foods and share all their food together since food cannot be stored. They enjoy hunting, feasting, spending their leisure time with family, caring for each other, tools making, cave paintings etc and live a life of peace, tranquility and social equality as everyone were hunter-gatherer (Equality in work and society).(Garden of Eden)
    Things only come to a change a mere 10,000 year ago where women (Eve) after many years of gathering edible of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds and insects and for her desire/want to settle down in more stable and secure life (Serpent) experimented and discovered that edible fruits/nuts/seeds can be cultivated and animals can be domesticated (tree of the knowledge of good and evil) persuaded Men (Adam) to become farmer.(The forbidden fruit)
    From land cultivation and livestock faming, food can now be stored and thus allowed accumulation of wealth (original sin) a new sinful/evil and an inequality world was opened up to mankind in growing of wealth and safeguarding of wealth. (Greed/craving, cling/attachment, fear/insecurity, envy/resentment, distrust/anger, hate/prejudice, worship/sacrifice, divine/god, landlord/capitalist, slave/labor, trader/marketer, craftsman/artisan, thief/robber, we/us, they/them, tribes/nations, kingdoms/empires, leaders/tyrants, murderers/conquerors and etc)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFIa3FNnFZM

    The Garden of Eden (hunter-gatherer) is now gone and lost forever. What we inherited is the current world with many social ills cause by human own doing of wealth creation and accumulation. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-richest-1-people-in-the-world-are-on-track-to-control-two-thirds-of-wealth-by-2030-2018-04-10
    The reality check, if we humankind still continues on the current wrong track of wealth creation and accumulation but lacking in compassion, love, altruism, wealth sharing and place great emphasis on worship instead of sacrifice/good deeds then by 2030 the richest 1% will own two-thirds of global wealth.

    Mahatma Gandhi listed the seven social ills of modern society as:
    1. Politics without principles.
    2. Wealth without work.
    3. Pleasure without conscience.
    4. Knowledge without character.
    5. Commerce without morality.
    6. Science without humanity.
    7. Worship without sacrifice.

    https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mother_Teresa
    I can only wish if only there is less worship and more sacrifice/good deeds as epitomes’ by Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta devoted/sacrificed her whole life caring for the sick, the homeless and the poorest of the poor in the slum of Calcutta.
    I cited her quote below to reflect her thought of humaneness, love, selflessness, devotion, compassion, empathy, sacrifice, suffering, pain, loss, darkness, hopelessness, despair, dead and question the absent of god’s mercy.
    • I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper’s wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?
    • Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love….The smaller the thing, the greater must be our love.
    • If I ever become a Saint — I surely be one of “darkness”. I will continually be absent from Heaven — to light the light of those in darkness on earth.
    • One day I met a lady who was dying of cancer in a most terrible condition. And I told her, I say, “You know, this terrible pain is only the kiss of Jesus — a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you.” And she joined her hands together and said, “Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me”
    • They say people in hell suffer eternal pain because of the loss of God – they would go through all that suffering if they had just a little hope of possessing God. In my soul I feel just that terrible pain of loss, of God not wanting me, of God not being God, of God not really existing (Jesus, please forgive my blasphemies, I have been told to write everything). That darkness that surrounds me on all sides. I can’t lift my soul to God – no light or inspiration enters my soul. I speak of love for souls, of tender love for God, words pass through my words [sic, lips], and I long with a deep longing to believe in them! What do I labour for? If there be no God—there can be no soul.—If there is no soul then Jesus—You also are not true… Jesus don’t let my soul be deceived—nor let me deceive anyone. In the call You said that I would have to suffer much.—Ten years—my Jesus, You have done to me according to Your will—and Jesus hear my prayer—if this pleases You—if my pain and suffering—my darkness and separation gives You a drop of consolation—my own Jesus, do with me as You wish—as long as You wish, without a single glance at my feelings and pain… I beg of You only one thing—please do not take the trouble to return soon.—I am ready to wait for You for all eternity.

    Worship/Faith without Sacrifice/Good Deeds is worthless. If everyone practiced their faiths by good deeds (Love God thus Loves everyone and sharing their wealth) and not just words/worships then for sure we can recreate THE NEW GARDEN OF EDEN on planet Earth.

    The world will be a much better place if we build wealth and at the same time give and share wealth. I wish more and more major shareholder of listed company in Bursa will emulate kind hearted Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow, founder of Public Bank in building and readily sharing the wealth of Public Bank with all the employees and shareholders with generous bonus/dividend and good capital gain. He is loved, respected and praise by the entire employees/shareholders. He is the shining example, the epitome of what all for one and one for all really mean.
    https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/highlight/2018/05/03/6000-gather-to-thank-teh-hong-piow-for-piloting-public-bank-to-success/

    May god be merciful to all and bless all.

    Thank you.
    Yours truly,
    SS Lee
    PS: What can we do to practice good deeds as well as good thoughts? What sacrifices are you willing to make to help others? Are we making a true sacrifice by telling others how hard we worked and that they can be what we are if they only try? Should we simply tell others to pull themselves up by their boot straps? Are all people really created equal in the sense that everyone has an equal chance at health, resource, education, work, government and happiness? Can we help make it so by sharing what we have with others?

    Tun,

    Assalamualaikum. This is not related to the topic above. But I ‘m going to put it down here anyway. Tun, I really respect and have full confidence in your administration. I think and many of us too that you are the main reason why PH managed to win the recent election. I think you have chosen your cabinets well and I believe we need to give ample time for the cabinets ministers to learn and adapt and put forward their ideas to make this country as the Tiger of Asia again. I understand that such task is difficult because you have inherited a ‘very sick’ government that was infected by deadly disease from top to bottom. But again I stress that I have full confidence in you and your ministers especially Dr Mujahid and Dr Maslee to take up the challenge. I am comfortable with Datin Seri Azizah and I was pleasantly surprise by her performance as the Deputy Prime Minister. But I never had any confidence in her husband as a leader and I think he is out of touch and no longer relevant to the people. He’s a populist and he has proven that he was not a great leader. I sincerely hope and pray that he will not win the PD election. It is so unfortunate that Rafizi could have come forward with this idea despite being a brainer. Dia dan DS Anwar cuma pengacau sahaja. I don’t even mind that Isa would win so that DS could not be in the government.

    Semoga Allah SWT panjangkan umur Tun berdua dan memberkati usia Tun berdua. Terima kasih yang tak terhingga kepada Tun berdua kerana masih sanggup menanggung beban yang amat berat ini. Hanya Allah SWT sahaja yang dapat membalasnya. Semoga Tun tergolong dalam golongan yang mendapat syafaatNya.

    Hang bermaksud hamsap, i mean lucah punya writing in macam dulu punya jelita ar?

    Aku pun pernah baca apa si perempuan main dengan kuching kesayanganya during the 90s in their column oleh doctor apanama.

    Macam ini, that was during the 90s, and hiv happened when human main dengan binatang jinak, bukan liar.

    Kenapa?

    Jika binatang liar, mereka pasti akan ditelan binatang ini.

    Dulu, world health organization memang tak tahu kenapa boleh jadi macam ini.

    Rupa2nya, di negara yang amat miskin, mereka memerlukan penternakan untuk bikin daging.

    Imagine, these penternak yang amat miskin dan langsung takda pengetahuan of diseases or jangitan virus, setiap hari bersama binatang ternakan mereka dan apabila takda kerja lain, dan bila nafsu sampai, mereka terus main aja.

    Kini, mereka mana berani nak main kerana ia akan mengundang penyakit muat, betul tak?

    But, porn child memang a crime di negara yang maju, entahlah di negara malaysia ini.

    As for same sex, atau prostitution, mereka sudah mahir in protecting themselves, therefore, it wont create troubles to the health ministry.

    If they still stuck in dulu punya mindset and still want to pass down to their next generation, and masih dillie dellie dan tak mahu eye to eye level talks, yup, voters will abandon them, and thats for sure.

    Good morning YAB Tun

    Berita sekarang penuh dengan Rafizi menang.

    I nak share my story.

    I sebenarnya buat part time unit trust agent since 1997. I masuk bidang ini sebab nak belajar cara pelaburan yang baik. Since I tak pandai kira2, I jadi recruit pada seorang China accountant.

    Walaupun I ini buat part time tapi merasa jadi runner-up top agency manager peringkat kebangsaan satu masa dulu. Strange kan? Part time tapi boleh dapat anugerah.

    Bagaimana nak build agency? Like insurance agency, sama juga dalam unit trust agency, rely on people, so jawapan sini kena recruit people dan train mereka. Tapi nak jadi agent kena duduk exam, lulus, baru dapat lesen. Tak ada lesen tak boleh jual.

    So ada orang yang baru duduk exam, hari2 tanya bila dapat lesen. Tak tanya lulus ke tak, tapi tanya bila nak dapat lesen. Ada orang tu tak peduli langsung, suruh duduk exam dia buat, lepas tu diam senyap tak tanya apa pun.

    From my experience and my partner experience, orang yang sering tanya bila dapat lesen, bila dapat lesen tak jual. Tapi yang diam tu nanti yang akan buat kerja dan berjaya.

    Moral of the story, yang tak sabar2 nak sesuatu tu selalunya, bila dah dapat, dia relaks je. Dia tak pandang jauh dari dapat lesen atau apa yang dikehendaki.

  124. mubarakchan Oct 8,2018 9:11 AM

    Tun

    A Monday morning is what I always look forward to every week-end. It is nice to have public holidays for most. But too much of it is not conducive to a person attuned to working to achieve something in Life. However, people must realize that it is better to have a job or work to do rather than being unemployed and sitting at home.

    As I ferried my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan, the traffic flowed at a normal speed which demonstrated that people are relaxed and happy in their minds as they headed towards their places of work. A good omen for all and sundry. Another fine and classic Malaysian good morning for you and me Tun. And what about the headlines ? There is only one of note.

    Malay Mail. ‘DAIM PLEDGES TO RESOLVE LOW INCOMES OF FISHERMEN.’

    This important headline jolted my senses and caused me to reflect on the countless of train journeys which I have made in Japan and Switzerland through the beautiful rolling countryside of these wonderful countries. Not only that, as the train rolled out to the countryside, the views of farmlands and the habitat of both the farmers and their keep could be seen in these landscapes of peace and contentment.

    During these trips, I always wondered how advanced industrialised countries like Japan and Switzerland with their highest standards of living in a small land mass could up-keep their farmers and keep them in the countryside.

    Eventually, I realised that the Government had a duty to maintain the farmers due to historical precedents and political reasons being the backbone of the country. And that it is pointless to have all the inhabitants in the towns and the countryside is deserted and devoid of Life, human beings and animals. As a result, I could only conclude that the disadvantaged farmer or fisherman is subsidized by the Government. This is the only way because the stand alone fisherman or farmer will be wiped out in the free market place by just one down turn. And in Malaysia it is desirable to keep the fishermen and farmers out of the clutches of the credits given by the middlemen as far as possible.

    Tun Daim Is c0rrect to emphasise the plight of the fishermen and the farmers.

    A marketing board is no solution. It is better to let free market principles reign in the market place for the fishermen and the farmers, and others.

    BUT LET THE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZE THE FISHERMEN AND FARMERS MONTHLY WITH CASH.

    The essential needs of a fisherman or farmer are food, education for the children, a roof over their heads, transportation. I feel a marketing board gives rise to red tape and corruption. It is better to subsidize these fishermen and farmers who need cash more than anything else. AND THE SUBSIDIES WILL NOT BE ANYTHING WHICH RUNS INTO BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS LIKE THOSE STOLEN BY THE 1MDB CROOKS AMONGST OTHERS.

    In recent years, I have noticed that Malay itinerant hawkers have discovered the best market places for themselves are in the commercial areas of Bangsar, TTDI and Sri Hartamas. Some of them come from as far away as Pahang.

    Just a few days ago, my wife bought some very good rambutans from a Malay itinerant hawker who came all the way from Pahang. He was selling the rambutans at RM 6 per kilo by weight. Here is an example of an enterprising person who knows how to market given the support which he had in Pahang.

    On the other hand, decades ago, it was alleged that some FELDA settlers were selling the fertilizers given to them to outsiders. Hence, it is better for the Government to subsidize fishermen and farmers with cash instead of equipment which they would sell at a loss eventually or did not maintain. The exception would be a larger piece of equipment like a fishing boat or a harvester under Government supervision through a co-operative.

    All in all, to resolve the low incomes of fishermen as suggested by Tun Daim is a MUST for our beloved Malaysia because all Malaysians should be on the same level playing field under the Sun. Because we care for our fishermen and farmers like Japan and Switzerland, Malaysia stands out as a country which cares for all her citizens and not only those in the towns.

    If Japan and Switzerland have been doing this by assisting the fishermen and farmers, Malaysia can also follow along a similar route or manner.

    I strongly believe that Malaysia has the capability to raise the incomes of fishermen and farmers as pledged by Tun Daim. And the cost to do so is minimal with the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great as led by our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We care for the fishermen and farmers like anyone else !

    Yup, malaysia is a blessed country with plenty of oil, henceforth, we dont need nuclear power.

    Even when ktm, ercl and hsr merged, we still need petrol to generate transportation needs which is vialable in any countries with roads and highways.

    It depends how you do it so that it is more rewarding and less damaging to the environment.

    But sadly and unfortunately, it is still about my way, your way after more than 6 decades of merdeka.

    To those in power, they are more interested to rich themselve first via qe method just to increase the muslim population through back door.

    They are not only being unfair to their own race, they are being unfair to other races as well.

    This is malaysia, and malaysia is part of south east asia region.

    This is a political fact that no one can deny.

    It is either we adapt, or we will be left behind.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya banyak kali baca tentang Mujahid kata wartawan silap faham berkenaan kenyataan beliau.

    Berkenaan isu nafsu ini biasanya saya tak bagi terus link kat sini, bukan apa, takut menda yang tak elok tu saya tanggung dosanya sekali kalau tersebar.

    Lagipun kat sini ramai lapisan yang membaca.

    Rasa saya Tun hanya google search yang biasa biasa saje.

    Cuba Tun google search ‘Melayu Tumblr’ dan scroll ke bawah cari video video dan tekan play.

    Kemudian Mujahid boleh kata wartawan silap faham kenyataan beliau.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Yup, when the law is changed from jaga jiwa dan hati muslim to jaga jiwa dan hati melayu, it will make them more confused, aimless and directionless.

    When the law is changed just to make favor someone, or a political party, then, the non muslim and non malay will have the choice not to merge with them.

    They are already slow and behind in the past.

    With the slogan of keranamu malaysia, they are even slower and more behind because of hak istimewa.

    When the slogan changed to gemilang, cermerlang and terbilang, they became more slower, more biadap and more sombong.

    Then the slogan of 1 malaysia is born, and akhirnya umno.

    Unless, they really think nasi lemak and roti canai can build the tallest building in south east asia region by demoralizing other races.

    Unless, they really believe keris gergasi with kek pulut can build the strongest islamic hub in south east asia region by demoralizing other races.

    It is up to both of the political divides to decide who have the biggest bite of the kek pulut.

    Ps: look at ktm and their service, you will how good efficient they are, tak gitu sibotak?

    Assalamualaikum wmwbt Tun.

    Cuma nak tanya, apa masih perlukah sekolah2 asrama penuh seperti SDAR, STAR, MCKK, Tun Fatimah, Kursiah dll wujud sebagai sekolah “jantina tunggal”. Cuba pakat tengok kesan saikologi dan egoisma mereka keluaran sekolah2 “jantina tunggal” ini berbanding yg bersifat “pelbagai jantina”.

    (2) Mungkin para professional ahli saikologi pendidikan dan kemasyarakatan boleh mula berbincang tentang hal ini. Cuma singkirkan soal sentimen dan nostagia. Lihat kpd kepentingan Melayu dan Negara dari sydut Islamnya.

    Jaga diri Tun. Semoga Kerajaan dapat merobah cepat aoa yg BN tidak perbuat dgn baik.

  130. asahamat Oct 8,2018 3:37 AM

    Assalamualaikum wmwbt Tun.

    Nampaknya, banyak perkara yg Menteri2 PH buat atau kata yg ada pihak tengok tak berapa betul dan boleh dijadikan “polimik” tak sihat.

    (2) Saya rasa elok Kjaan sekarang tengok cara @ kaedah PR yg Kjaan gunakan esp RTM. Saya tak nampak RTM telah berubah, dari meneruskan budaya “polimik @ politicking” kpd budaya penyampaian maklumat @ pendidikan berkesan. Mungkin profrssionalisma para pendokong RTM telah jumud @ sedang menghadapi masalah kewangan @ kedua-duanya.

    (3) Contoh dlm isu2 yg boleh mengundang polimik, elok guna RTM utk dijadikan media “academic discourse” dari para Menteri buru2 buat kenyataan. Biar ahli2 yg pakar dalam bidang tsb berbahas dan Menteri taklah perlu ke depan dlm semua hal.

    (4) Saya nampak, kebanyakan masalah polimik di negara ini ialah bila orang politik selalu “gelojoh” hendak ke depan n tidak menggunakan mereka yg professional utk ke depan. Penyakit lama, orang politik serba semua tahu masih terlalu menjalar dalam Governance Kjaan kita. Wajar para ahli politik kini mulai mengamalkan “biar jauhari juga mengenal maniksm”. Menteri biarlah lebih menumpu soal2 dasar dan prinsip. Biarlah soal operasi @ pentadbiran itu menjadi hal jentera kerajaan.

    Jaga diri Tun. Semoga Kjaan focus utk buat kerja dari timbulkan “polimik”.

    To ordinary prc nationals, they dont like usa because they perceived usa wants to force and smoke china to go into war with them.

    If usa president trump really wants to force them into war, they too had no choice, and will go for it.

    Thats politics.

    In diplomacy, to china, when negotiation failed, then, culture or bullet exchange pun takda masalah.

    This is call show hands what.

    Only americans can play, you think prc nationals dont know how to play?

    Jika mahu main politik, kena main dengan cara yang betul.

    Jika tidak, kedua2 negara besar ini pasti akan dijadikan bahan untuk media menulis.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    Negarawan Paling Senior Di Atas Planet kata orang Amerika Syarikat

    Bercakap Dari Hati Yang Ikhlas Tanpa Rasa Gentar Atau Berat Sebelah

    Sewaktu ayahanda Tun di AS banyak pihak di sana mahu dengar pandangan ayahanda Tun tentang kebangkitan negara China dari sudut ekonomi global sementara AS cuba menyekat China dengan Trump mengisytiharkan perang dagang ke atasnya.

    Tertarik dengan pandangan sinis, bernas dan bersahaja dari ayahanda Tun yang mengatakan negara kita telah lama menjalinkan hubungan dagang dengan negara China sejak beribu tahun lamanya dan tidaklah sampai ia menakluki kita.

    Lain pula ceritanya dengan negara Eropah (Portugis) yang mula menjalinkan hubungan dagang pada tahun 1509 tetapi dua tahun kemudian kita pula dijajah.

    Bukankah kita perlu takut dengan Barat terutamanya AS lebih dari China kerana AS yang risau dengan kekukuhan ekonomi China hari ini dan juga risau apabila China yang miskin beberapa dekad yang lalu.

    AS tahu Najib pula pro AS sehingga skandal 1MDB dibongkarkan DOJ dan Jho Low sengaja mengalihkan kiblat ke China untuk selamatkan dirinya dan Najib.

    Selama ini kita boleh bangunkan negara tanpa pinjaman China dari syarikat China, material dari China dengan pekerja2 dari China dan duit tidak pernah mengalir masuk ke Malaysia tetapi sentiasa mengalir keluar.

    Ayahanda Tun dari dahulu suka guna acuan sendiri untuk pulihkan ekonomi dan tidak pernah berkiblatkan barat atau AS atau IMF dan atas asas ini risau bebenor memikirkan sdr ABI yang pro-Barat dan AS itu 🙁 .

    Sekian.

    p/s : Benarlah kata ayahanda Tun baru2 ini bahawasanya orang2 tua ini kadangkala digalakkan bertikam lidah untuk memastikan otak mereka sentiasa cergas dengan membaca dan menulis tetapi kalau boleh jangan terlampau sensitif sehingga semuanya dianggap fitnah 🙂 .

    Good evening Tun

    I ada baca berita yang Mujahid sebut editor putar belit apa beliau cakap.

    Setau I kes2 begini usually sebab jiran report. Government department tidak akan datang kalau tidak ada report. Mereka takan ketuk pintu rumah orang tanpa report. Kalau nak bersedudukkan ada baiknya jangan duduk area orang Melayu. 🙂

    I tak tau the system now, sebab most kawasan urban dan suburban dah ada guard house. Kalau nak masuk kena tunjuk IC. Kalau kata nak pergi rumah nombor ini, chances are the guard akan contact owner dulu, sebelum yang nak masuk dapat masuk.

    Mungkin mudah di luar bandar but I don’t think that easy if tinggal di bandar besar.

    Back in the late 80s, I pernah tinggal kat Ampang, a double storey terrace house. 3 bilik di atas 3 lelaki tinggal. I ambil bilik bawah sebab I perempuan.

    I have no problem dengan penyewa bilik lain, but the problem datang from a girl yang boyfriend nya tinggal di bilik atas. Dia sering datang tinggal di bilik boyfriend, though the boyfriend macam tak layan dia dengan baik. Dia tetap suka tinggal situ.

    So satu malam pencegah maksiat datang, intai kat tingkap bilik I. Apa mereka nampak? I yang baru nak tukar baju. Ofcourse I jerit. To cut the story short the girl pada malam itu kebetulan tak tidur situ.

    Anyway bila abang ipar girl ini dapat tau, the next time the girl datang situ, dia kena pukul, sampai arial radio I patah. Puncanya the girl lari masuk bilik I. Abang ipar kejar. Bila kena bantai radio I pun kena. Dah Datok dah abang ipar dia sekarang, celebrity, tak payah sebut nama.

    Satelah kena pukul teruk tak serik datang lagi. I pun malas nak layan, I pindah rumah. I heard she and her boyfriend got married, dan cerai lepas tu. Did not know how long the marriage last.

  138. Hajar Oct 7,2018 2:09 PM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Dalam Sistem Demokrasi, para pengundi @ warganegara berhak untuk mengkritik pemimpin2 Kerajaan yang memerintah (asal tidak keterlaluan / memfitnah). Jadi, saya sebagai warganegara Malaysia berhak mengkritik apa saja tindakan2 dan keputusan2 Kerajaan PH yang pada pandangan saya ternampak tidak betul.

    2. Kritikan2 saya memang berkaitan isu2 yang melibatkan rakyat (dan saya), dan bukannya saya mengkritik / mengutuk / mengejek penampilan, fizikal atau usia seseorang seperti yang sesetengah ‘bloggers’ gemar lakukan (kesian betul…dah tak ada modal lain…). Ada warga tua yang menyertai blog Chedet setelah ‘pencen’ membuat andaian ‘bijak’ lah kononnya bahawa orang yang menyertai blog Tun semenjak 2008 ialah orang pencen (dan wajar diperlekeh otak dan dihina fizikalnya…ini satu kebodohan melampau..). Setahu saya pengunjung2 blog Tun ada juga di kalangan pelajar sekolah dan Universiti.

    3. Izinkan saya Tun untuk ulas isu berikut:

    Tiada lagi operasi khalwat waktu malam – Dr Mujahid

    /// KUALA LUMPUR: Tiada lagi ketukan pintu di waktu tengah malam oleh pihak berkuasa agama yang menyiasat laporan khalwat atau salah laku lain.

    Sebaliknya, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa menegaskan bahawa apa yang dilakukan oleh orang Islam di belakang pintu tertutup bukanlah urusan pihak kerajaan.

    “Katakan anda melakukan sesuatu dalam ruang peribadi anda, saya tidak akan campur tangan. ///

    http://www.mstar.com.my/berita/berita-semasa/2018/10/06/khalwat-bukan-urusan-kerajaan/

    Astaghfirullah…Baru sahaja menjadi Menteri, Dr. Mujahid sudah menunjukkan betapa liberal dan dangkalnya pemikiran beliau yang tidak selari dengan ajaran Islam yang sebenar.

    Dalam erti kata lain, sekarang ini di Malaysia (kalau ikut kenyataan Dr. Mujahid), pasangan yang beragama Islam boleh bebas BERSEKEDUDUKAN (tinggal serumah tanpa ikatan perkahwinan), dan tanpa rasa takut atau bimbang untuk melakukan maksiat asalkan dilakukan di “belakang pintu tertutup”.

    Ish..Ish..Ish…Pasangan Islam yang buat maksiat di “belakang pintu pejabat/ hotel/ pondok/ kenderaan, khemah, etc.” yang tertutup (asal ada pintu) pun bolehlah agaknya. Entahlah.

    Umat Islam memang wajar (wajib) menegur dalam hal kemungkaran. Kadang-kala, bila jiran menegur (kemungkaran), pasangan yang ditegur buat dek saja (tak makan saman). Sebab itu perlakuan2 sumbang akhirnya dilaporkan kepada pihak berwajib (tidak mahu bersubahat). Kita tidak mahu perlakuan sumbang/maksiat khalwat (bersekedudukan) menjadi budaya kita. Kadang-kala, kita terpaksa mendedahkan aib seseorang untuk mencegah perkara2 mungkar dari terus berleluasa.

    Bercakap dan membuat keputusan secara terburu-buru tanpa berfikir panjang sudah jadi ‘trademark’ ahli2 Kabinet PH. Amat menyedihkan.

    Maaf Tun, saya terkilan bila baca kenyataan Tun berkenaan hal yang amat penting dan sensitif ini.

    Astaghfirullah…

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

  140. mubarakchan Oct 7,2018 8:45 AM

    Tun

    Many people must have asked you about the secret of your wonderful health. A secret which made you outlasted other persons more than half your age. As I commented early on your evergreen physical activity in support of your evergreen political activity, it was ‘ A QUALIFIED DOCTOR’S SECRET !’

    You were quoted in the media with two versions of the same coinage which makes your tongue in the cheek remark all the more amusing to most which are your supporters and un-amusing to the naysayers of the moment. Why at the moment ?

    You have not only seen it all. But also how some have ingratiated themselves with you from nay to yea for their usual benefits. And this is the best joke for you of a Lifetime. How yea-sayers become nay-sayers, or nay-sayers become yea-sayers appearing in stark colours without shame in our Malaysian Political Spectrum. That’s Humankind for you and me, Tun. The word gratefulness is missing in some vocabulary. Your quotes of the day :-

    1. ‘My quarrel with Najib kept my brain active in old age.’

    2. ‘My quarrel with Najib kept my brain sharp.’

    How many of us may have the privilege of quarrelling with the ex-Prime Minister, Tun ? None is the answer.

    So it is good that you kept all of us in the dark as to how to keep ourselves in a tip-top condition right up to 100 and beyond.

    It is good also that your remark gave a jolt to the young generation who are still wet behind the ears that they will NEVER DIE ! I have a list of 65 names which showed they do die young. The youngest was 39 !

    With the realization of a person’s sensitivity, I never ask another person how old they are or what they do for a living. But I have such questions constantly thrust upon me by younger people at the first opportunity. I always smiled and said nothing.

    As a qualified doctor you would agree with me that our brains are not only our most valuable asset to advance or do ourselves in during Life as recent events in our beloved Malaysia have shown us. The functions of the brain to this day have still not fully reveal its secrets governing vital functions in our bodies.

    We know important hormones are secreted to facilitate the functions normally from its cells both in the grey and white matter. The reason for this knowledge barrier is simply that we cannot experiment with a human being’s brains. And as you rightly said the best we can do is to keep the juice (hormone) flowing normally by being active.

    This has proved effective and correct in your case. We see many become aged at 40 and many at 50 onwards. Sometimes, we pin this down to our genes. But nothing more. No one really knows why some age faster than others. So we can only do what is best under our own control which you have stipulated, Tun !

    With a simple understanding of the brain, we can map out the course of our health and longevity accordingly.

    From my own experience and that of others, I found our brains performed best between 18 to 30 years. It is reported that geniuses produced their best works during this age. From 30 to 50, our mental faculties are on a gentle downward slope together with our physical activities. This is the moment when all of us think we are Supermen ! A steeper mental and physical downward gentle spiral occurred from 50 to 72. At this point, the loss of mental abilities and physical attributes take a sharper down turn. There is no escaping this route by anyone.

    But for those like you Tun who knew how to keep the brain healthy and strong, the functions of the brain still could be maintained at a high level comparatively.

    Like you Tun, who can maintain a highly level of discipline,commonsense sobriety, frugality in our every day living and in our diet and think of goodness all the time ?

    No smoking. No gambling, no drinking, No over-eating. No late nights etc In the main, a normal human being would have thought nothing of it. Hence, the doctors knowing the frailty of Humankind always without fail advise their patients that they can do everything but do not abuse the privilege. Practice what they preach as it is said.

    And finally, who would know how to keep oneself fit and healthy from age 21 onwards ? Not many. Only the doctors.

    A good example is the articles produced by you here Tun and those incoherent driblets by HBT456. The difference between a good brain and a bad one is the QUALITY OF ITS LIFE ! No more. No less.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! I will be buying a RED National Car in 2020 ! That’s what my brain told me yesterday, Tun !

    Langkah bijak politik dari ayahanda Tun apabila memilih untuk turun ke padang membantu bekas TPM ke 7 yang menghadapi pertandingan 7 penjuru di PRK PD.

    Walaupun mengikut fakta sewaktu ayahanda Tun menjadi Pengerusi BN beberapa dekad lalu tidak pernah pula turun berkempen untuk mana2 PRK.

    Inilah kes Anwar minta dimanjakan terlebih pulak, sudahlah diampunkan begitu sahaja sekarang mahu didokong pula bekas TPM ke 7 ini ke laluan PM ke 8 di negeri 9..

  144. Hajar Oct 6,2018 2:57 PM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Bagi golongan yang betul2 faham erti Demokrasi, mereka bukan jenis yang suka buat kacau/ merusuh, atau sikit2 mahu tunjuk perasaan di khalayak umum jika tidak puas hati dengan apa saja isu.

    2. Rakyat yang matang dan boleh berfikir secara logik sedar dan tahu bahawa Kerajaan (Malaysia) boleh ditukar secara aman damai melalui Pilihanraya Umum (PRU). Undi kita amat berharga.

    3. Pada pendapat saya, Tun berjaya menerapkan banyak nilai2 murni di jiwa rakyat jelata semasa Tun menjadi PM ke-4 selama lebih 22 tahun. Salah satu nilai murni tersebut ialah agar rakyat tidak sesuka hati berdemo secara haram dan menyusahkan orang lain, kerana setiap kali ada demonstrasi jalanan, banyak orang yang tidak berdosa mengalami kerugian (jalan sesak, bisnes terganggu, etc). Kerosakan harta awam turut merugikan Kerajaan. (Tetapi Tun pula telah pernah berdemo 🙁 .. nasib baik didikan baik Tun masih dipegang oleh majoriti rakyat.)

    4. Kerana kejayaan Tun mendidik majoriti rakyat Malaysia untuk menghargai keamanan yang kita ada, peralihan kuasa selepas PRU14 berjalan dengan baik, dan pihak yang kalah tidak melakukan huru-hara. Bodohlah orang yang menafikan hakikat bahawa kesedaran majoriti rakyat (termasuk pihak yang kalah) tentang pentingnya menerima kekalahan dengan hati terbuka banyak menyumbang kepada peralihan kuasa secara aman.

    5. Tentang PRK PD, saya harap Tun fikir kembali (batalkan saja) tentang rancangan Tun untuk turun berkempen di PD bagi menyatakan sokongan kepada Anwar Ibrahim. Tun tidak perlu terlibat dengan PRK PD yang dari segi moral memang tidak patut berlaku.

    6. Lagi satu, antara bekas PM Najib dan Anwar, kita tidak boleh jangka siapa yang lebih teruk (sebagai PM). Pada pemerhatian saya, DSAI akan jadi PM yang lebih teruk (dari DSN). Kita lihat sahaja nanti (jika Allah izinkan DSAI menjadi PM). Mungkin ada hikmahnya jika DSAI menjadi PM supaya apa yang digembar-gemburkan tentang kehebatan beliau boleh beliau buktikan (tong kosong saja dia ni…).

    7. Anwar belum pernah jadi PM. Tun mana boleh jangka apa yang beliau boleh lakukan selepas menjawat jawatan PM. Dulupun Tun menyokong bekas PM Najib, dan kita lihat apa yang berlaku. Tun sendiri pun terkejut dengan kerakusan bekas PM Najib. Saya harap Tun tidak melakukan satu lagi kesilapan yang (lebih) besar di mana Tun tersilap menilai perangai seseorang yang Tun sokong untuk jadi PM. Jika Tun tersilap lagi, habislah kita…

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Good evening Tun!

    Wah banyak betul kerja rumah kena buat hari ini. I ada dengar sosek sosek Tun dah ada cybertropper, kalau ada kosong I nak apply, boleh?

    Sempena election PD ini banyak betul cakap2 kat media massa. Kalau Tun tanya I, jika mengundi di PD, nak undi Anwar, tak? Pantas I jawab, Tidak.

    I sebagai yang tak mengundi disana boleh bagi banyak alasan kenapa I tidak akan undi Anwar.

    1. TIADA TANDA SYUKUR : Ketika baru keluar dari penjara, Anwar terus naik pentas, siap cium tangan sendiri (ada keluar dalam news portal) mengajar LGE macam mana jadi Minister of Finance. Anehnya disini kenapa Anwar tidak buat doa selamat, panggil orang masjid, kenduri di rumah. Bukan kah itu sering dibuat orang Melayu beragama Islam, tambahan bila usia dah meningkat senja.

    2. TIADA TANDA BERIBADAT : Kenapa dibulan puasa, isteri beliau pernah sebut nak pergi masjid bersama (ada keluar dalam news portal) tapi yang I nampak Amwar pergi overseas instead. Bukankah baik jika mereka berdua pergi masjid dalam bulan yang mulia, kalau tiada ada masa pun, sekali sekala bersama, especially umur mereka dah meningkat senja.

    3. TIDAK BIJAK JAWAB : Kenapa semasa disoal, samada beliau homo. Tiada jawapan terus dan lurus diberi. Anehkan, bagi seorang yang sering bercakap bagai seorang sastarawan negara ketika dipentas dan khalayak ramai.

    Namun ada juga sebab2 lain I dengar kenapa ramai rasa beliau tidak layak jadi PM, rasanya tak penting I tulis lagi, sebab online dah ada.

    Kawan2 hubby pula kata sebab kocoh. Kocoh nak keluar penjara. Kocoh nak jadi MP. Lepas ini mesti kocoh nak jadi DPM. Lepas itu kocoh nak jadi PM pula. Serba macam kocoh pun akan ada nanti.

    Sebab terlalu kocoh maka ada macam2 kes, termasuk full and free pardon dipertikaikan ramai. I tak blame agong, I bet someone lobbied for the royal pardon; must be LGE or DPM or both.

    Anwar no Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela makan 4 tahun baru tanding.

    That’s all I can say. Tun boleh cuba bantu, pilihan still ditangan rakyat. Biarlah pilihan kali ini bersih, cekap dan amanah.

  147. milshah Oct 6,2018 10:48 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    I would like to comment something that has been on my mind ever since Pakatan Harapan won the election. Being a politician you may have noticed this too. When Pakatan Harapan won, it caught everyone by surprise. Najib and his co-conspirators took time to absorb the result, which resulted in the delay of the GE result announcement, but in the end they had to accept the will of the rakyat. However, that didn’t stop them from making certain maneuvers.

    If Pakatan Harapan is to win, they had to accept, but it is one they cannot accept is Tun Mahathir becoming the Prime Minister again. They had caused too wrong to Tun, and Tun knows all their evil deeds. If they had won the GE, our beloved nation would have been destroyed.

    Their thinking was, yes, Pakatan had won the election, but as at least let’s not make Tun Mahathir Prime Minister again.

    And so, the first thing we heard was the phone call by Najib to Anwar on the day the GE result was announced. Najib wanted to make a deal with Anwar, since PKR won the most seats among the Pakatan parties. But Anwar would have none of this, he told Najib to deal with Mahathir.

    And then, there was the pardon. The speed at which Anwar was given a full pardon was amazing. Would Anwar have been given a full pardon, if BN had won the election?

    And then, there were talks that someone wanted Kak Wan to become the Prime Minister, since again on the basis the GE was won on PKR logo and therefore the offer to be PM should be given the President of PKR. Again Kak Wan declined on the basis it was agreed among the coalition for Tun to become Prime Minister.

    And recently the UMNO AGM, there was again talks of a unity government, between UMNO and PKR, which was again dismissed.

    Even the PD election, in which Anwar is contesting, UMNO decided not to contest.

    There is a sense of so much fear from the other camp not from Pakatan Harapan but from Tun Mahathir. And there is a sense Anwar will be their savior from Tun Mahathir.

    As for Anwar, he must realise, the other camp, wanting so much to friend and cosying up to him, I believe, is not out of really want to be nice to him, but more out of fear of Tun. They hope, when Anwar becomes the 8th Prime Minister, Anwar won’t be harsh to them, as Tun might. Anwar must understand, Tun governed as he did, because what if what they did, was a terrible sin, they betrayed the rakyat and the nation.

    My hope is when Anwar becomes the Prime Minister, he would not be influenced by their cosying up. A wrong is still a wrong, and they must be held accountable for what they did to the rakyat and the nation. My hope is even after Tun, Pakatan Harapan would continue to uphold the rule of law and justice.

    Let this be a lesson to everyone not to betray the trust of the rakyat and the nation.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Sistem nilai masyarakat perlu dibetulkan dahulu sebelum kita membetulkan sistem mentadbir.

    Samada diktator, demokrasi atau monarki pemimpin perlu disokong oleh rakyat.

    Penolakan oleh rakyat terhadap pemimpin tertinggi negara secara liar akan mengakibatkan kejadian yang tidak aman serta berlakunya pergolakan dalam negara.

    Malaysia berpegang pada Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah. Kita mengikut Imam As Syafie.

    Kita diterapkan dengan nilai nilai sistem yang bersopan santun dan berbudi bahasa.

    Saya tidak melihat tujuan untuk menukar pemimpin itu sebagai sukaria. Kita perlu menjustifikasikan kenapa kita perlu melakukan pertukaran.

    Ia perlu mengikut Al Quran, Hadith dan Ijtimak Ulama.

    Samada anda diktator, demokrasi atau monarki, Islam melarang keras untuk mengulingkan pemimpin. Ini kerana dibimbangi huru hara akan berlaku.

    Huru hara bukanlah ditakuti oleh kita, akan tetapi huru hara itu adalah kesan dari bunuh membunuh di antara satu sama lain, bagi yang menentang dan ditentang.

    Alhamdulillah kita beruntung kerana pernah ditunjukkan jalan oleh Allah swt dalam perkara ini.

    Kita punyai sedikit kelebihan dalam perkara ini, dan ia telah kita gunakan serta telah terbukti bahawa ia beroleh kejayaan. Iaitu kita melalui jalan piihanraya sistem demokrasi. Kita menang 2/3.

    Adalah tugas Tun sekarang untuk mengukuhkan lagi sistem nilai masyarakat.

    Sistem nilai yang betul akan melahirkan lebih ramai pemimpin yang berkaliber pada masa hadapan, walaupun sekarang kelihatan bakal bakal pemimpin pun tunggang langgang sekali.

    Pegangan Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah telah dibuktikan benar. Ia adalah hanya 1 yang benar dari 72 cabang yang ada.

    Kita perlu mengukuhkan lagi dan terus mempertahankannya.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Yup, no one can buy power with money forever, henceforth, general election must be called.

    Mubarakchan can continue with all the bullshits of this and that.

    The most stupid leaders in this country is the chinese.

    The most pampered leaders in this country is the malay.

    The most clever leaders in this country is the indian.

    Banjir pun tak dapat disetel, even when pas vowed with gergasi keris to potong kek pulut pun tarak guna.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Democracy or whatever system designed championed by countries all the world over are man-made. Anything man-made are with flaws and defects, can be cracked and breached to insulate or cover-up a damaged situation. This is nothing unusual because it has happened whereby intelligent but corrupted persons linked to the government are hand-picked and engaged to be collaborators. Crooks preferred crooks. But as usual nothing good comes easy. Tun is attacked for speaking out and criticizing on violence, oppression, injustice, abuse of power, sufferings, disrespect perpetrated by countries claimed to be democratic and have huge super powers. So glad Tun has shown this beloved country the bright road to eradicate crook-nose, hook-nose and the corrupt.

    Is there a situation in PD, Tun that you need to go down there? Do you have to response to their SOS? Will the situation be any better if you helped out? Of course it would if you go as the PM of Malaysia it would be a great boost to their side but would it be fair, Tun? DSAI has everything needed, funds, bodyguards, government machinery but he still need Tun to help in the campaign. If he couldn’t handle this situation himself and bring success single-handed without direct support from Tun how were we to hand this country to him? This PD move is their idea so they should work extra pretty hard fair and square to woo bigger votes and win. Don’t drag Tun and then blame Tun if things go the opposite.

    Anyway, Tun this talk about “quarreling” it’s too trivial as an excuse. I mean people do talk, slander and gossip so if politicians who are good inside out this should not damage their reputation too much. As you said thick-skinned politicians can tackle and withstand anything that is obviously a sham. If you have to, Tun just do little little only. Don’t stressed out yourself, Tun. Let the people who created this so brilliant move run the entire show themselves till the very end. Sincerely I wish them luck.

    May Allah bless Tun always and protect Tun wherever you might be. May Allah give you great wealth in health so you can lead us for many many years to come, InsyaAllah. Take extra care of your safety and Thank you Tun.

    Tun

    The day began with a fantastic morning. The sky was completely cloudless with a tinge of pale orange in the eastern horizon which according to my beloved mother who told me when I was a boy that the following day will be nice and dry, no rain. So much for the state of our weather in this country which we were born in and grown to love except for some misled souls turned by brainwashing.

    So much for the fine weather and lack of natural disasters in this wonderful land of ours since eon times. However, our newspaper headlines do not match with the wonderful weather we always have. And this morning as I slurped in my wonderful RM 3 nasi lemak and poured over the headlines, this was what struck me hard in my eyeballs, the bad headlines :-

    1. FT. ” WIFE OF FORMER PRIME MINISTER CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING.’

    2. FMT ” PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE COSTS MORE PRIORITY THAN RM 1 TRILLION DEBT.”

    3. NST ” PM. WE’LL LOOK INTO FAULTY BUOYS ”

    4. NST.” NUCLEAR POWER IS OUR GREEN FUTURE ”

    5. NST.” HEROES “.

    As a group of headlines with a collective meaning, these show the state of affairs concerning NORMAL BEHAVIOUR, COMMONSENSE AND RULES WERE MISSING IN PRACTICE.

    1. ” WIFE OF FORMER PRIME MINISTER CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING.”

    Where else but Malaysia ? Where else the wife of a Prime Minister could have access to so much money as to launder it whilst the husband was in the office of the Prime Minister, mixing up PUBLIC MONEY WITH HER HOUSEKEEPING MONEY ! Where were the rules and regulations governing the behaviour of a Prime Minister who was elected as the paradigm statesman of the country by all concerned. And here, his wife is alleged to be dipping her hand into lots and lots of Public money as charged. The First in the World to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records. Where else but Malaysia ? She would have well spent her time laundering her family clothes instead of doing big business LAUNDERING MONEY BELONGING TO THE RAKYAT ! Like this, she would be happy today like you and me, Tun ! And on second thought, how could this gentleman be the Prime Minister when a situation like this arose ?

    2. FMT.” PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE COSTS MORE PRIORITY THAN THE RM 1 TRILLION DEBT.”

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government walloped the revenues up-front and neglected the payment of recurrent expenditures like salaries, pensions, healthcare, education, social welfare and maintenance of the military as well. The One Trillion ringgits are still sitting in the overseas bank accounts of the crooks and ALL EFFORTS SHOULD BE MADE TO RETRIEVE THEM NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT OR HOW LONG THESE WILL TAKE.

    3. NST. ” PM. WE’LL LOOK INTO FAULTY BUOYS. ”

    This statement arose out of the dire neglect of the security maritime deep sea buoys deployed to give warning of tsunamis to come in the adjacent areas near the sea. This statement should not have been made by the Prime Minister who has more important things to consider than maritime buoys.

    This showed the dire neglect by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government who walloped so much Public Money for themselves that the Public Coffers are empty to service routine Recurrent Expenditures. Not only that, it is legend that the military equipment or other mechanical devices or vehicles which the Federal Government bought through the decades always broke down after a period due to the lack of follow-up and routine maintenance. Warships lie idle in ports. Submarines do not submerge. V-100 or tanks do not move. Jets do not fly.

    The New and Incorruptible Government has plenty to do in their hands.

    TAKE THE CASE OF THE DBKL. NOT ONLY ARE THEY FAMOUS FOR MAKING BUMPS ALL OVER FOR THOUSANDS OF RINGGITS EACH, BUT THE GREEN SPACES ALONG THE BY-WAYS AND HIGHWAYS ARE PLANTED WITH ALL SORTS OF FLOWERING BUSHES WHICH NEEDS CONSTANT WATERING AND TRIMMING (MANPOWER) AND THIS APPLIES TO THE WHOLE OF KL. How much money is wasted in the maintenance of flora only SUITABLE FOR THE GARDEN OF A HOUSE. MILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF PUBLIC FUNDS ARE WASTED IN THE PLANTING OF MORE AND MORE FLORA OF ALL DESCRIPTIONS. And the maintenance if any which goes with it. AND WHERE IS THE MONEY TO MAINTAIN SALARIES, PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE ETC.

    Since some folks are so crazy admiring LEE KUAN YEW, I suggest they GO AND ADMIRE HOW LEE KUAN YEW TURNED SINGAPORE INTO A GARDEN CITY WITH THE RIGHT SORT OF PLANTS AT MINIMUM COST ! This is only one area which LEE KUAN YEW TOWERS OVER DBKL IN TERMS OF SAVING MONEY AND NOT WASTING MONEY IN CORRUPTION TERMS. Has the DBKL heard of Lee Kuan Yew creepers and bourgainvillas the perennial flowering plants ?

    4. NST. ” NUCLEAR POWER IS OUR GREEN FUTURE.” Is this a joke ?

    You are correct in completely dismissing the use of NUCLEAR POWER IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    The Author of the article went on and on dreamily in his ivory tower quoting the likes of Bill Gates and Western personalities from another World about the goodness and the sweetness of NUCLEAR POWER.

    Maybe the Author was not born in the 1980s yet when there was a mighty power breakdown in Bangsar. It was alleged a Dutch boy was despatched from ye olde Singapore to turn on or off the right switch as the saying goes.

    Not only that a struggling contractor who inveigled himself via a draughtsman to touch base with the source became handsomely rich from a lush contract to generate power to this day. Who says the Chinese are disadvantaged. Maybe by those who do not use their brains but their mouths.

    And the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster in Russia. My brother flew over it in 1988 and died of leukaemia in 1992. There have been disasters concerning nuclear plants in the US and the UK which have been covered up.

    In the recent Fukushima Nuclear Plant disaster about 200 miles from Tokyo, the Western countries advised their citizens to avoid travelling to Tokyo. This was followed by advertisements encouraging tourists to visit Japan put up by the Japanese Government. So far all the NUCLEAR POWER DISASTERS HAVE OCCURRED IN LARGE COUINTRIES WITH LARGE POPULATIONS.

    IF SUCH A NUCLEAR DISASTER HAPPENS IN MALAYSIA, ALL MALAYSIANS WILL BE WIPED OUT, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS AND ALL. NOT ONLY THIS SINGAPORE WILL BE DESTROYED, AND INDONESIA, THAILAND, CAMBODIA AND VIETNAM DISABLED. Thanks to the happy-go-lucky Malaysians who do not care about maintenance of their equipment or procedures.

    ALL MALAYSIANS WOULD HAVE GONE FOR 5,000 YEARS, DEAR AUTHOR !

    I predict ALL OF ASEAN WILL OBJECT TO MALAYSIA PUTTING UP A NUCLEAR PLANT. THEY WOULD BE STUPID NOT TO. TO STOP THIS ABSURD PROJECT FULL OF CORRUPTION.

    Yes ! Corruption in Malaysia will also affect the NUCLEAR PLANT BECAUSE OF NEPOTISM, NO MONEY TO EMPLOY PUKKA PERSONAL, NO MONEY TO KEEP THE NUCLEAR PLANT IN A TIP-TOP CONDITION FROM OVER-HEATING. 1001 things will make THE MALAYSIAN NUCLEAR PLANT BLOW UP TO KILL THE 31 MILLION MALAYSIANS, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS AND ALL FOR 5,000 YEARS.

    And the Author without thought that present day Malaysia is contributing to the Green World because of our still standing forests. And also China and America, maybe India still ignore the Green, Green World with their populations of 2.8 Billions compared with Malaysia’s miniscule 31 Millions. Dear Author the World has globalised since 1990 !

    THE NUCLEAR PLANT CAN ONLY APPEAR IN MALAYSIA BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION. NO MORE. NO LESS. AND ASEAN WILL OBJECT.

    5. NST. ” HEROES “. I offer my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the bereaved families of the HEROES. An event which should not have happened given the circumstances.

    It is a well-known fact that disused mining ponds in Malaysia are death-traps for all, swimmers or non-swimmers. The ponds are deep with steep sides and cold water. There is no foot-hold if a person jumps into the cold water which freezes up the body. These are all death-traps to the unwary. For 6 firemen to be caught in such a situation, it seems there was a slip somewhere when the first victim had already gone under sometime before this. I suppose other factors would have saved the day. Our main concern now is to prevent further mishaps and LOOK AFTER THEIR FAMILIES WELL.

    The above-mentioned collection of neglect, the lack of maintenance of equipment and corruption due to the neglect of rules and regulations is a collection of bug-bears facing any Government and not least of all the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great as led by our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    I would say the function of khazanah is similar to tumasek of singapore.

    The difference is khazanah connects themselves to muslim countries in the middle-east due to o & gas industry to make the biggest halal hubs in financial and manufacturing sectors via 1mdb and felda global in south east asia with a population of 30 million including sabah and sarawak.

    On the hand, tumasek singapore connects themselves to the world’s top cities based on merits and world standards with 6 million plus population.

    The late lky did mention, the local politics have too much arab influences.

    Even the melayu also feel alienated, you think other races do not feel this way?

    If you are not a muslim syariah mps, will you be able serve willingly by forcing you to follow the lifestyle of muslim?

    Itulah sebabnya umno bn tertumpang keranamu malaysia pada 9 mei 2018.

    Yup, this show all systems can fail if the owners made the wrong decision, but the country name is still malaysia.

    We cannot change the past, but we definitely can improve in the future.

    P/s: 6 anggota pdrm mati lemas to save a life, and those senators involved and igp needs to address this problem in the public as pdrm is public civil servants under malaya federation on why this happened, and how to prevent it from happening, not by sekadar baca doa, then, the case is closed.

  154. HBT456 Oct 5,2018 8:58 AM

    This apply to asian mahupun south east asia region.

    For those who cannot accept and respect other races, then, they must stay in kampung and jaga their own kampung.

    So much domestic social crimes, what so you do as the misnitry concern?

    Changing law is very tough and difficult because no one can see the impact in the long run, therefore, law shouldnt be changed just to favor someone, or political party.

    To be or not to be, that is not the question.

    Able or not, we will see how far kita semua can go.

  155. HBT456 Oct 5,2018 8:51 AM

    The definition of tolerate is to accept behaviour and beliefs that are different from your own, although you might not agree with or approve of them.

    The law that is passed and approved by the majority of the mps based on tolerance, then, the ultimate result is tidak kukuh, atau ultra.

    After so many years of doing hardtalk and softtalk, there dont seem to be a political, economic or social solutions, henceforth, programmes are here to bring malaysians of all races to reach a common goal, bukan?

    The key word to move forward is INTEGRATION of all races, bukan force assimilation mahupun soft assimilation of ketuanan melayu mahupun ketuanan islam based on vote counts whereby winner takes all.

    Everyone is aware agong and states’s sultan are malay, and the official religion of malaysia ia islam.

    Therefore, no need to continue playing with these issues again and again, dah merdeka more than 6 decades, cucu cicit pun ada, tak cukup lagi ke?

    Tun

    At this time of a person’s Life, shall we say we have seen it all. Really Tun ? With us Humankind nothing is surprising, nothing is beyond expectations. That’s Humankind for you and me. Round and round we go about our lives in Politics, Sports, Science, Wars, Inventing things or whatever through the centuries from the time of long ago when we all were supposed to be disparate tribes wearing loin cloths if not skins.

    Humankind despite their civilizations are no better than the animals in the jungle or the African wild, killing each other for space. The killing has never stopped since the beginning of Humankind. The history of Humankind is a history of wars, conquests and more killings. The creation of kingdoms and empires in different times and places. Through the centuries of wars and strifes, Humankind had only known peace under despots which came one after another in different regions in most parts of the World even the Incas in the Americas have them – the despots.

    Suddenly arising from all the sword and the blood of civilised Humankind, we chanced upon 19th Century Britain which by then had absorbed the Irish, the Welsh and the Scots through conquests by the wily English. With the centuries of strife and bloodshed in their quest for Power and to Rule over others, the British did not create the Mother of all Parliaments but the realisation of debates and majority Rule was the way to go in the pursuit of Success and Wealth in Britain’s 19th Century Industrialization. This boom was great at the expense of the poor masses and the newly conquered colonies of the World. The Wealth so engendered can still be seen in the huge estates with magnificent palaces dotting the countryside of Britain. Sometimes abandoned or still lived in. That was the result of sorting out politics on an even plane to face the World of Britain’s foes or rivals to create an Empire which the World had never seen before and on which the Sun never sets. The Power of Democracy in Britain’s self or National Interest. The other countries of the World later developed the same political forums not for fun but of Survival of the Fittest with a strong underbelly after realising that the Kings or Queens who ruled them were mainly ineffective or devoid of ideas having been corrupted by Power and Wealth. In other words, two heads are better than one.

    Like a tiny seedling in a primeval forest, this Democracy of the Mother of All Parliaments grew in lands far away as the panaceas to rule by despots, kings or dictators. The Rule by the Majority. Some succeeded in Europe but crooks like Hitler could manipulate Democracy for his purpose and others like him as well. Throughout the 20th Century, Democracy struggled to establish itself in many countries. With the collapse of the British Empire, the British left different manner of Democracy in different lands arising from their demographic manipulations like importing East Indians to Guiana, South Africa, Malaya ,and Chinese to South Africa, Australia, Malaya to fill their commercial needs. At Independence or Merdeka of these former colonies, a Constitution created to tailor fit for each ex-Colony. Many failed thereafter due to the usual excess and abuses of Humankind.

    Malaysia I would now say the Lucky Land, escaped the wanton excesses and abuses by her governing Rulers right up to 2003 because the first four Prime Ministers were well prepared and selected for the job to Rule the Rakyat. They were intelligent too. The fifth, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is exceptional in that he had to be brilliant to be able to qualify as a DOCTOR to save lives. How to save lives ? Years of study and practice using one’s brains with discipline and controlled emotions. a DOCTOR CANNOT BE SEEN CRYING IN FRONT OF A DYING PATIENT WHOM HE WAS SUPPOSED TO SAVE ! Right ? With a highly intelligent and trained mind which absorbed all details plus his doctor’s little book, nothing escaped his scrutiny. However, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was a giant in the making. He had weaknesses which the wily CLOSEST AIDES EXPLOITED HIM. His greatest weakness is his COMPASSION AND THE ETERNAL DESIRE TO HELP OTHER ALWAYS. All doctors have these traits which are good for doctors and prime ministers BUT NOT THE ATTRIBUTES FOR MAKING A HUGE FORTUNE which requires different human attributes. So, when Tun admitted he made some mistakes, I truly and sincerely believed him.

    From 1957 to 2003, our beloved Malaysia’s unique Malaysian style Democracy with a Malay bias and our loyalty and devotion to the Constitution, our Yang Di Pertuan Agong abd the Royal Sultans rested with the Head of the Federal Government, the Prime Minister.

    IN THEM, THE PRIME MINISTERS OF MALAYSIA 1957-2003 WE TRUSTED. THEY DELIVERED THEIR HONESTY, CARE AND LEADERSHIP TO US THE RAKYAT. We have always been not stupid or subservient but through our own natural Asian courtesies and respect for the advice of Elders and accommodation between different communities , we Malaysians tend to be more docile in the eyes of the foreigners. Not so. History has shown us to be tolerant and patient with crisis and problems and not to rush to the streets burning, killing and raping.

    9 May 2018 GE WAS A GREAT PROBLEM OR CRISIS SAVER FOR US MALAYSIANS BY WAY OF OUR MALAYSIAN STYLE DEMOCRACY – our civilised way. IT ONLY HAPPENED BECAUSE WE HAD THE RIGHT LEADER IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME ! Others have failed in their efforts to capture Putrajaya since 1997 ! Let us all remember for our own sake’s in the National Interest. We must never forget significant milestones in our beloved Malaysia’s colourful history.

    AND WHEN THE LEADERSHIP OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DID NOT PRACTISE DEMOCRACY BUT ONLY PAY LIP-SERVICE TO IT FROM 2004 TO 2018, the only device legitimately and in acivilised manner was to kick out the recalcitrant via our Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias – the BUMIPUTRA AFFIRMATIVE POLICIES to uplift all to an even playing field. This bit of Democracy was actually what made our beloved Malaysia ticked all these years amongst others as promised by one Prime Minister after another but lost its meaning between 2004 to 2018 due to greed, weakness of the flesh and the soft underbelly COMPOUNDED BY SHADY FOREIGN TYPES IN SUITS READY TO EXPLOIT ANY WEAKNESS OF THE MALAYSIAN LEADERSHIP WHICH WAS PLENTY BETWEEN 2004-2018.

    Democracy survived in our beloved Malaysia. Cynically, Democracy saved itself with the right Leadership. Thanks to our courageous and brilliant Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Be a doctor to be sure of becoming the Prime Minister of Malaysia one distant day.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  157. HBT456 Oct 4,2018 3:24 PM

    Dictator means saddam hussein needed to be mean, heartless and ruthless in killingthose rivals who opposed him during the 70s.

    Meaning people including his relatives were afraid of him, not because they respect and accept him as leader.

    The 1st female prime misnister of pakistan benazir bhutto, a muslim, was assasinated.

    The closet muslim legal aide of myanmmar prime minister ang sang suu kyi was being assasinated few years back in broad day light, if you are in her shoes, how will you feel?

    Even when north and south korea united, 2 political system will still be there for many generations to come, that is north korea remains as 1 party system, and south korea remain is a multi-party systems.

    We have gone through so many ugly politically propagated protests, jika masih tak cukup hodoh lagi, then, they really have to ask themselves again, are they not good enough, or are they not rich enough?

    To open up, or to nail the coffin, it is up to them to decide.

    Even when we know the truth, thats nothing we can do jika mereka tak rasa segan mahupun insaf.

  158. milshah Oct 4,2018 9:55 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Democracy is a means, it is not an end. We don’t apply democracy for the sake of democracy. We can see how democracy have affected many middle east countries. For example Iraq, where the President Saddam, was seen as a dictator. The western powers dispose of him and installed democracy to Iraq. But did the Iraqi people benefited from this democracy? On daily basis, we can read news on Iraq like suicide bombings, secterial attacks between Syiah and Sunni, etc, etc. Has democracy benefited the Iraqis? Clearly it has not. Where are the Americans and British who said they disposed Saddam to make Iraq a better country now that Iraq is in state of chaos? Even though Saddam maybe a dictator, at least he brought progress to the Iraqi, at least there was no fighting between Sunni and Syiah. So I agree with Tun, we don’t practice democracy for the sake of democracy. It does not mean if every country in the world adopt a democractic system, the world will be a better place.

    However, for Malaysia, we were fortunate we had a democractic system. But democractice system alone is not sufficient. The voters must also know how to use the democractic powers given to them. And we needed a coalition of parties led by a strong leader to convince the voters to vote for the right party.

    During Najib as Prime Minister, alot of things was thrown at him but failed. The 4 Tan Sri to investigate the 1MDB scandal was disbanded, the audit report was classified as Official Secrets documents, some newspapers had their licenses revoked or suspended, Bersatu was suspended before the election,Harapan registeration was in limbo, corporate company’s that funded the opposition was investigated for income tax, etc, etc.

    He was able to dodge everything thrown at him. Not only that, those who investigated him was eather replaced or faced criminal charges for “attempting to topple a democratically elected government”.

    When all hope seems but lost, during GE 14, the people rose and used their voting powers to change the government. It was a miracle, nobody, even the oppositions, deep in their hearts thought possible. Only and only then, was Najib defeated.

    So democracy does work, as in the case of Malaysia for the GE 14, but it does also have its shortcomings, and does not necessarily work for all nations of the world.

    Good evening Tun!

    I baca berita ini 2 hari yang lalu https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2018/10/01/hannah-defends-views-after-getting-roasted-in-sarawak/

    Kalau tanya I mana yang salah. Dua2 pun salah.

    Satu nak Malaysia Baru. But the Malaysia Baru masih ada ramai rakyat dalamnya tak reti cakap Bahasa Melayu dengan fasih. Malah ada yang tak nak iktiraf Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Penghantaran. Kalau kita ingat baru2 ini ada berita Sultan Johor menegur tentang kegunaan bahasa.

    Indonesia, Filipina, Vietnam, semua tempat ini ada keturunan China, tapi mereka fasih bahasa negara mereka, tak sama macam di Malaysia.

    The other pihak pula Sarawak for Sarawakians. Ini lagi best dia panggil kita disini Malaya. Dulu I pergi Miri pun mereka panggil I orang Semenanjung sama macam orang Brunei panggil I orang Semenanjung. Memang some masih panggil Malaya. That was like 7 8 years ago.

    Perlu ingat Malaysia dah Merdeka 61 tahun.

    A sad day for Malaysia today. Our beloved icon Datin Sri Rosmah Mansor has been detained and will be charged tomorrow. What have you done.

    She is supposed to be above the law you know. We allowed her to have so much money and to spend. The more she spends the more dignity she brings to us as our icon.

    Dignity of a race has been raped by those who only understand the rules as they are written. It is beyond the written rules and laws. The silent codes that must be respected and never violated that these people can never understand.

  162. Sri Sense Oct 3,2018 12:44 PM

    Good morning dearest Tun

    One of the foundations of democracy is the assumption that all votes are equal. Well, that’s the theory—but in fact it is rarely so (more on that later).

    In a democracy, tribal mentality is very dangerous, because it will make you vote “for your team” instead of voting according to issues. That means that whoever leads “your team” can rest assured that they have your vote, and instead of focusing on your interests, they can proceed to deal with their own. You can see that a lot in UMNO or even in big offices, bila cakap kat manager, manager tak pass kat management, your agenda tong sampah, his agenda in 🙂

    Well, nothing is perfect in this world. We just try to get along with each other. If we can’t, avoid it la. You can migrate also, nobody tahan you. Unless hutang bertimbun ada court case maybe susah la. At least dalam democracy system ada pertukaran leaders but in communist system tiada. A leader can be forever there sampai mati. China for example. The danger for them to do business with negara2 democracy also masaalah, the leaders in those countries keep on changing, at least 5 years.

    Terlanjur bercakap pasal business, I nak share story ini, I pernah ikuti kursus MARA, like more than 10 years ago.

    Trainer pernah cerita ini, dia kata ada seorang bekas Kerani Besar kerajaan, bila pencen buka kedai runcit. Satu hari datang pelanggan. Tauke duduk kat kaunter. Pelanggan ini tanya ada rumah sewa. Tauke jawab cuba awak keluar dan lihat papan tanda atas, apa tulis situ.

    Trainer kata macam mana niaga lagu ini, sepatutnya bila orang bertanya, dia patut cari kan la, dapat extra duit dengan arrangement tersebut. His shop pun akan ada ramai pelanggan datang, sebab semua pun ada dan dia boleh buat.

    Ini cerita lama Tun. Ini pula cerita baru.

    I ini ada main game online. Ada masa nak beli barang online tak mau pakai credit card, I pakai MOL points. I pernah pergi kedai Cosway yang owner orang Melayu, dia kata tak ada, tapi MOL points website kata Cosway ada jual. Bila gesa2 barulah owner check dalam system, sah memang ada, sudah pula tak tau guna.

    So I pergi berapa tempat dan tanya, sebelum I complaint I kena buat cukup research dulu kan.

    I pergi satu lagi Cosway pekerja perempuan asyik main talipon, bila tanya jawab, tak ada, cuba MyNews. Bila tanya MyNews berdekatan, jawab ada jual tapi internet down. Sikit punya pusing orang Malaysia buat orang Malaysia. Lagu mana tu Tun?

    So finally, masa nak tuang minyak kat kedai Shell yang biasa, I terus tanya budak Bangla yang isi minyak, sini ada jual MOL points? Dia jawab, MOL points, itu topup ka, ada2.

    Macam mana tu orang Bangla lagi pandai.

    Whoever becomes the next prime minister, he will no longer enjoy 2/3 majority votes to dictate what he sees fit, and thats for sure.

    When the public trust is betrayed, it could never be earned back though.

    I already said, jika betul2 mahu ambil kira, we have to go back to the past events that lead to look east policy, depeg of rm against trading us dollar and capital control policy since the arrest of anwar on 1.9.98.

    Yup, each financial crisis can never be the same since no one knows what will happen henceforth, general election must be called.

    But, when syariah mps outnumbered non syariah mps, then, as non muslim, you should know it is time to kiss goodbye forever.

    Not being in the federal government is not the end of the world, therefore, treat it as the blessings.

    The ball is on macc at putrajaya.

    Greed vs fear, mubarakchan decides.

    My own way of thinking
    End day there is no perfect solution to any problem

    US seems Very democratic on the surface
    But the fact is its politician behaving Communist and very dictator
    Using force , Military oppression at expense of human lives
    Just to make sure they get their way

    The facts All or almost all Politician are Hypocrites
    Always point finger at others yet pointing 4 fingers at themselves which they did not realize or perhaps refuse to realize

    Today Govt will have the opposition to oppose in Parliament
    What do they oppose ?
    Oppose for the people for the nation benefits or just using it for their own hidden benefits
    So much so we see ugly argument in Parliament
    Much most in Malaysia , South Korea and several Govt
    Much so the Oppositions voice are quite in par with the Govt

    In Singapore we can see much mature Parliament
    As Opposition voice are much less heard thus much weaker
    The Govt will squeeze yr balls before you could even utter a word

    People give you names ? Dictator ?
    Prophet Muhammad p.u.h face far most accusations than this

    I don,t believe in Party competing another party to form a govt
    Different Party will compete , campaign, pointing fingers at others now and then
    The best Party selected will Win

    My Vision of building a Govt
    Individual competing another individual
    Those interested talented person who have the will , The sincere intention comes forward to form a Govt
    From these group of people , they will chose the best individuals within for the right post

    From these formations a system to elect their own leader , their own Ministers
    They will not be allow to have their own Business as it will conflicts their role in Govt . Those will be paid comfortably for so not they will be corrupted

    As most Party that form a Govt , end say .Every will tends to benefits the posts for their own individual interest or business
