Government and Governance in the Islamic World 132

Full text of PM speech at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies on September 24th, 2018.

Bilsmillahirahmanirahim in the Name Of Allah the Merciful and the Compassionate.

Assalamualaikum and very good afternoon everyone. Mr. Nizam, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen. I feel deeply honoured that I had been asked to speak once again at Oxford University. I have chosen the subject called Government and Governance in the Islamic World. The first thing that you would note about the system of governnce in Islamic World is that it had hardly changed. At the time when the rest of the world were modifying their system of government. The Islamic World remained attached to the system the monarchy system which supports an authoritarian system. Nobody could think of any revision in that system. The ruler is supreme and obedience to him is a must. The ruler has absolute power. And this is accepted by the people in muslim countries that the ruler should have absolute power. Of course as you say absolute power corrupts and corrupts absolutely. Invariably this happens in most of islamic states. It doesn’t mean that they don’t provide good governance all the time. They have been rulers in Islamic state who have done a great deal for their country who have led their country to prominence until at one time of course the muslim appeared to be the most successful people in term of governance of their countries. They were strong they were able to conquer their neighbours. They were able to provide for the development of their countries. In fact they were so impressive they are letting a lot European countries felt they need to copy from the muslim governance system. And so therefore some time around 15th century Europeans began to study Islamic way of governance and development. They even studied arabic in order to gain access to the great libraries in Cordoba in Baghdad because they want to know how was it that the muslim so abled to build the great civilisation. The standard in those days was the muslim standard. Everybody felt that if they copy the muslim system they would progress. Indeeed they did around 15th century they gained access to the libraries of the muslim intellectual and they learned alot from the Muslim.
But unfortunately at about the same time the muslim decided that their system was wrong. They decided they were not Islamic enough. They thought anything that is not about Islam is not desirable. The study of other subjects will not gain merit for the after life. And so they cease to study all those subjects at which they excelled in the past. Of course we know of name like Ibn Sina, Ibnu Rusyd and the others who find many of the knowledge that gave muslim civilization the edge over other civilizations.
However, through out all these the whim and fancies of the ruler prevails. If they have good ruler then they succeed and they become very modern in that sense during their time. But the ruler upon gaining absolute power invariably abuse the power that they have and so we find that some of the intellectuals were the victims of jealousy on the part of the ruler. And of course they did not get the benefit of intellectuals in the governnce of their countries.
These prevail until today and now muslims have to admit that they are not leading the world anymore. They have been left behind and they have been left behind because they have discarded the learning that they find before. This has been taken over by the European and they find that they were left behind they continue to be left left behind. Eventually of course the great Muslim civilisation fragmented and almost all their lands and teritories were conquered by western countries. They no longer have anything to buy and to rule. This does not mean they are incapable they are very capable people but their opportunity to learn anything else other than religion had denied them. As a result they began to regret.
This is one of the things that happen when will give absolute power to anyone at all. They tend to be jealous of others and they tend to downgrade anybody else who may appear to be better than them. Throughout history of the Muslim word we see these things happening eventually they had to come around to prepare to accept the fact that they are no longer the great Islamic Civilisation that they used to be. They see all around them countries which had prospered greatly. These countries prospered because initially these countries learn from the muslim civilisation and they made progress from there on. After the muslim countries were conquered they felt that they were no longer able to compete with the West and they developed inferiority complex and they feel that they could do nothing right. The regression goes on and on until many of them migrated to
to live in other countries and and they find that other countries are doing better then their own countries. They find that giving power to one person is not right . They need to adopt the system that was developed in the West. Eventually of course they felt they too should become democratic.
But democracy is not the easiest way to manage. It is very complex it needs self restrain on the part of many people including of the people who have been given the right to choose their government but this is something that muslim generally does not understand how could the ruler be chosen by the people. The ruler should be because of his right because he comes from certain family even if the ruler is overthrown by some leaders in their community. The new leader inevitably adopt the title of ruler. They all became sultan and they all propagated same sytem of government in which the ruler does everything for the country for the people. Indeed all revenues go to the ruler. It is up to his generousity to distribute wealth to the country in order to grow or to administer the country .That is still stand today. Revenue of country belong to the ruler and it is up to him to be generous to pay for the administration and development of the country. And as I said just now invariably they become corrupt . So the answer to that is to change system of government and they found that system must be the democratic system and they were urge to overthrow their rulers and setup a democratic government.
We know they tried to do this now known as the Arab Spring but as you know democracy in the west did not become the system overnight. It took the West almost 200 years to develop the system of democracy. It required a certain frame of mind to accept having a ruler who is chosen by the people. The progress was slow. Initially only land owners were allowed to participate in voting for the government subsequently other groups were also allowed working people were allowed like to go to other government women took a long time get the right to vote for the government.
So you can see that the democratic system did not come to the West overnight. It took many many years before the frame of mind was such that they accept the result of simple things like a tick on a piece of paper called the vote to determine who will rule the country.

The other thing about the muslim world is that they believe in consensus that any decision must be agreed to by everyone. Until it is agreed to by everyone a decision cannot be made. It is almost impossible to have everyone agreed to anything invariably there will be wdifferences in their views and opinions as in order to achieve consensus they have to water down whatever decision to make until it becomes quite meaningless. So it is very difficult for Muslim countries to change on their own. They may have noticed the dictatorial ways of the absolute rulers but they could not think of changing the system because to do so need to have consensus. It took them a very very long time before some members of their community having been exposed to system of the government in the Western countries. For them to decide they took long time until they were forced by outside power to change. This was the regime change that they have to undertake.
It is now called the Arab Spring. Why it is called the Arab Spring is something that until now I cannot understand but the fact is that the the world caused is changing the system of government in the Muslim countries and this is something that is good . But they forget that it is not just the system that has to be changed it is also the mind set the value system of the people must change which has changed. From having hereditary king to having leader voted by the people is a big change which is not easy to adopt by whole country . So what we see is that they did carryout out revolution of sort to overthrow out the dictatorial leaders for all these they were all united . They thought that if the ruler is disposed then they will become the ruler. Always the thinking is still change a ruler for another ruler. They did not realised that the reason the why ruler was disposed was because there were many factions in their society wanted the leader to be dispose so for that reason they remain united. They have one objective to overthrow the ruler and they felt once the leader is overthrown then they will become democratic. But there are many factions which participated in the overthrow of the rulers and each faction believe with the ruler they will take over his place as soon as the ruler is overthrown they realise that the are many aspirants all wanted to pickup the ruler.
When they conducted election they found that through election one of them not all of them but one of them may achieve the desired number of votes in order to be the government.
But the loser do not want to accept this. They felt that something must be wrong if they themselves did not win. So a new government is formed with probably the people giving majority to one party the other party refuses to accept the result they would struggle to bring that government down In many instances of course they resort to violence and the new government elected by majoriy of people were pulled down and they’re either have to have another election or else somebody might elect to power . if there is a strong military force in society the military will take advantage of situation and form a kind of military government which of course is not democracy. Otherwise they might have an election they may be a new party would win but the new party will be subjected to the same forces which brought down the previous party. So sometimes you see something like musical chair with different parties becoming the government and being change without being able to rule the country.
This is because on the one hand the intellectuals may understand the workings of democracy but the vast majority of people do not understand that in the democracy you have to respect the vote. You have to respect the choice made by the people feel that if they are not being chosen there must be some mistake somewhere. So you find government being changed and change again some time through democratic processes at other time through seizure of power by some strong man or by military. You see this happening in many of the new democracies in the Muslim world.
If they are going to suceed I think it is necessary to give them more time to develop the mind set that understand that you can honour the vote of the people and accept there will be a ruler who is chosen by the people by the simple process of voting.

This is something that is not really understood in the Muslim world which I said just now is much more familiar much more comfortable with hereditary ruler. We find that even though there may be change of government invariably would try to assume the position of a hereditary ruler. They cannot imagine that after they finished their term either somebody else might take over from them. So you find in some dictatorship resulting from the overthrow of monarchy. Also setting a new monarchy with same system of hereditary ruler.
The expectation is that once a person win with his family have right to govern the country through his family forever. So this is the process that can only be avoided over time by learning and understanding the democratic system .
I am saying this about muslim countries. Malaysia is a muslim country not 100% muslim. 40% of our people are non muslim and 60% are muslim . But upon independence we decided that this system we would adopt would be democratic system.
This was not so easy because we have 9 rulers 9 hereditary rulers. Most of the muslim in the country are very loyal to this ruler. How do we deal with them? We thought we should adopt the British system of constitutional monarch. But then there are 9 monarchs so we decided to have a change of the ruler every five years but confined to the hereditary rulers of 9 states. Somehow it has worked because the people in the country seem to find that they still have their rulers but they can still have their democratic system.
It is not been easy there are problems like race differences and religion but Malaysian are probably the most timid people. They don’t like violent they are prepared to endure hardship with that government until it changes by itself. They are not going to make any effort to overthrow the government. No violence no assinnation and the like and so in Malaysia it seems to have work. But Malaysia is not 100% muslim. I do not know whether Malaysia as 100% muslim country would be able to fuction as democracy or not. We need to test that.
Perhaps by depriving the non muslim of the right to vote but of course we are not going to do that. But in other muslim countries we see the transition has brought about changes which are disastrous for those countries I think there is a need of them to spend more time understanding for the people themselves to understand the democratic system if you don’t understand that in a democracy the vote is powerful then of course you cannot have a democratic system. This is the problem faced by many Muslim countries because there is still much more comfortable with monarchy with authoritarian system even if there is seizure of power by a non royal still the new ruler would assume the title of king or sultan whatever and rule the country thru their authoritarian monarchal system so this is a problem that cannot be overcome overnight he’s going take long time unfortunately because they don’t understand the system they are facing terrible disasters today and every time they tried for democratic system they will be fighting among them and the countries can be almost totally destroyed. For me as a Muslim I feel shame that muslim countries are not so well governed to the extent that Muslims run away from Muslim countries to live in non muslim countries. That is what is happening today they find that non Muslim countries provide better protection and security for them but their own muslim countries are unstable one and oppressive. So Muslim need to understand that power given to the ruler is not for him to use for his own self but actually for the country and the people. This is something that many of the absolute rulers do not understand. I say this with repetition because even in my own country we cannot say anything against the ruler and of course you have such powerful rulers as it would be some abuses of power. We have in Malaysia we have to suffer in silence and some how or rather more likely is this a difficult task for us in Malaysia it is even more difficult for the 100% muslim countries because their people do not understand the democratic system. A system in which the people choose their government and support the government in their period of time . They cannot wait until term is over they need to change immediately after an election try to overthrow the winners. They cannot wait until 5 years or 4 years before the next general election is held . This is what we have seen today in many Muslim countries and I think it is going to take time for them to understand
the working of democracy, time for them to learn to respect the vote and set up government which uses power in order for betterment of country and people. I thank you.

    When george washington became the first united states of america, he had shown great example of mankind to future usa presidents, that is, he sticked to 2 terms of usa presidency that is 8 years maximum regardless economy in good time, and in bad time, until today.

    China too sticked to one party system since mao zedong era until today regardless the economy is in good time, or bad time.

    When they have the thoughts of chopping heads and hands, then, you will know they cannot last for one term, and thats for sure.

    Assalamualaikum wmwbt Tun.

    First thing first, Tun kena kekal n kental semangat kenegarawan. Tun jgn mudah marah, sedih apa lagi kecil hati. Benar Tun pun manusia, tetapi Tun manusia yg lain dari manusia2 lain. Tun Allah ciptakan dgn banyak keistimewaan dan tanggongjwb penting.

    (2) Saya syorkan, modify saja perkhidmatan Teksi dan Grab. Teksi banyak masalah kroni UMNO, MCA dan MIC dan pemandu teksi banyak sekadar hamba. Grab bukan Syarikat Msia. So saya cadangkan hapuskan Teksi utk hapus kroni. Hapus Grab juga. Dua2 kena hapus dan lupus.

    (3) Sebelum hapuskan Teksi dan Grab, tubuh dulu sebuah Syarikat lain milik Msia, katalah milik PNB yg mana semua pemandu teksi boleh melabur n begitu juga peserta Grab. Operasi Syarikat ini boleh ibarat Grab. Cuma tambah baik utk keselamatan penumpang dan pengusaha.

    (4) Sebagai ganjaran kpd pemandu2 teksi yg ada, Kjaan bolehlah taja pelaburan mereka spt Kjaan pernah taja Program Basmi Kemiskinan melalui Pelaburan dlm ASB sedikit waktu dulu. Utamakan saham Syarikat dijual kpd pemandu teksi @ peserta Syarikat ini kemudiannya. Pelaburan tambahan boleh dibuat melalu potongan “mgmt fee” kpd Syarikat. Saya cadangkan biarlah Syarikat ini jadi milik PNB @ GLC yg semua rakyat Msia boleh melabur. Syarikat ini seakan2 MAS juga.

    (5) Dgn cara ini, kawalan mutu perkhidmatan akan jadi lebih baik. Ianya juga boleh dikembang kepada khidmat kereta mewah bagi keperluan3 khas terutama di Hotel, Lapangan Terbang dsb. In Shaa Allah sistem kita akan lebih maju.

    (6) Tak perlu dikenakan terlalu banyak Permit n
    Bayaran buat pengusaha. Go for Volume. Volume tinggi, rakyat akan guna perkhidmatan ini secara meluas, Negara In Shaa Allah boleh dapat Cukai Individu dan Koprat yg tinggi.

    Tun jaga diri. Rehat selalu sikit. Cool n keepup your stateman outlook.

    I am not sure whether they are buta huruf, pekak bahasa atau rasis when they pakai the word bangla in writing or oral.

    Will they introduce themselve in oversea as i am melayu, atau i am malaysian?

    P/s: mereka ingat hanya kaum mereka saja yang tahu cakap melayu?

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    New ministers barely make the grade, says Malaysia’s PM Mahathir

    /// The newly appointed ministers of the Pakatan Harapan government have scored only 40 to 50 per cent in Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s books.

    In an exclusive televised interview with Astro Awani on Sunday (Oct 21) evening, Tun Mahathir spontaneously assigned the mark when asked to rate the performance of his Cabinet.

    He also conceded that it was no easy task to change the perceptions and mentality of certain Cabinet ministers, especially those without prior experience in government leadership positions.

    He confessed that it was difficult to shift their paradigm to one held by a government leader, instead of an opposition leader. ///

    What? They scored only 40 to 50 percent of the total marks? 🙁

    That’s terrible, but I believe there are Ministers / Deputy Ministers who scored lower than that.

    In my book some failed miserably (including Mr. LGE).

    In fact during my under-grad at a foreign country, the passing mark was 60 (60%). So, based on this grading scale, they failed. 🙁

    P/S: Tun, please just ignore those very rude cabbies. Don’t be sad. Stay put and be strong. Sayang Tun…

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

    Nak cerita ini, bukan cerita dikutip dari press.

    Masa my son nak buat UBER, I tidak begitu setuju. Macam bunyi taxi service. Takan la budak yang ada MBA bawak taxi kan. My son kata company US, everything done online, there’s no cash involve. He also said that ada commitment so he dia kena buat sesuatu.

    I pun terus study UBER their business and so on, then I said to him, I see something like a club membership. Pakai di negara lain boleh guna di negara ini. So I nasihatkan anak I, if you like meeting people this job is good for you.

    True enough, after that anak I sering dapat orang dari luar negara naik keretanya. GM big corporations, penghuni Kenny Hills and tempat elite yang lain adalah pelanggan localnya.

    Anak I pernah cerita, ada 3 orang Indonesia ambil dari airport naik keretanya, mereka tanya mana tempat makanan Indonesia best.

    My son teringat kat office dad ada satu kedai Indonesia yang dad kata sedap. Dia bawak mereka ini kat Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. Bukan main seronok mereka not only mereka ajak anak I makan bersama mereka tapi juga bekalkan sedikit makanan untuk bawa pulang.

    Dalam satu kes lain, my son dapat passenger Mat Salih yang nak hantar isterinya bersalin. Tempat tak begitu jauh dari tempat penginapan mereka. Bila sampai hospital Mat Salih nak bayar, son kata, its ok, on me!

    Its about friendship Tun. Son tak kerja lama dengan UBER, he got a permanent job after that.

    Sementera anak buah I, hubby dia juga bawa UBER dan Grab sekali gus. Dia buat kerja ini satelah kena VSS. Dia dulu kerja public listed company. Tapi bila UBER dan Grab dah cantum dia pulak unhappy, susah cari makan katanya.

    I difahamkan passengers dia banyak orang Bangla. Dia sering bawak mereka ke jabatan kerajaan bila ada urusan. Orang Bangla suka sebab tambang murah dari naik taxi cab biasa. Bila mereka dah suka, mereka sering rekomen kawan2 mereka, ada yang sampai ambil trip outstation. Selain itu UBER dan Grab beri dia peluang dapat kerja2 kecil – business yang ada kepandaian nya.

    That’s all I can cerita. Pandangan orang bawah, just an ordinary voter.

    Good Luck!

    Good morning Tun

    Jangan bersedih. Taxi association ini serata dunia pun perang dengan UBER. Kalau tak ada UBER mereka perang dengan GRAB. Its about nak jaga periuk nasi masing2. To me kalau serious nak buat sesuatu kerja, kena rajin usaha.

    My view biarlah Grab ada sebab ada ramai orang nak pakai service mereka. Negara ini kan negara demokrasi. Kita perlu bersikap adil. Grab banyak juga bantu golongan pensioner untuk cari duit lebih. Pelajar cari duit poket. Or orang yang macam anak I, semasa tiada kerja, buat kerja untuk langsungkan commitment.


    I perhati HBT ini tak faham cakap Melayu tapi cukup rajin tembak orang.

    Orang yang faham cakap Melayu tau yang I earlier sebut, dulu UBER tidak ada banyak kereta Perodua dan Proton. Dengan sikap cemburu dia kata I suruh rekomen Proton jadi taxi. Memang kelakar.

    Dia jeles sebab I pandai dari dia. Dan I pun cute dari dia. hahaha

    Tabiat dengki ini memang common lately I tengok. Tengok saja news online, si anu kata si ini, si ini kata si anu. On and on the same. Suruh buat kerja tak mau. Menteri pun sama. MP pun sama.

    Semua pun pandai tunjuk perasaan saja. Kalau ada duit poket ok juga, kalau takat belanja kedai mamak nak rebel2 baik la tak payah.

    Serupa juga disini, kita semua sekadar share pendapat.

    Tak perlulah ada orang kat sini pula hentam kita sesuka hati, nak tunjuk mereka lebih pandai, lebih cerdik. Kalau tak setuju tidak mengapa tak payah lah jadikan pengaduhan panjang2. Kita kat sini hanya sembang kedai kopi. Kopi also kena beli sendiri2 hahaha

    UBER dulu setahu I kereta besar, 4 wheel drive pun ada. Kereta 2 pintu, nope, not allowed for regular Ubers. But now usah kita risau tentang UBER Malaysia dan UBER SEA. Company asal dari US ini dah jual pada GRAB. Now everything under GRAB.

    Ramai orang suka GRAB tau, so jangan jeles TAXI.

    When kena macc, what did president umno show case instead?

    His grand daughter of 9 years old declared child jihat via twitter and facebook.

    Mr trump wont send tanks and jet fighters in the mexico border when things turned out ugly, messy, emo and rough to declare military war there kerana beliau bukan pak bodoh, pak pekak, pak buta mahupun pak tiru tiananmen square la.

    Adakah anda ini penyokong democrat atau mobs?

    P/s: Is islam a religion that chop heads and hands to dictate the world economy in 1000 years to come?

  9. HBT456 Oct 21,2018 11:58 PM

    Grab uses artificial intelligent to monitor, and track drivers and passengers for safety purpose.

    Taxi proton ada orang kuat mahir dalam bidang to implement such sistem?

    Instead, she should ask it it safe to use proton taxi from the drivers and passengers perpective today with so much crimes on roads?

    Implementating e-voting, then, pkr is a more canggih and excel than other political parties yang tak pakai?

    Since vote counts is so important, then, i can predict bersatu and pkr wont be able to stand alone since these 2 parties today are duri dalam daging to umno, and pas.

    Other political parties can either remain bn, join ph, or go independent, itu saja.

    P/s: when ph minister said drinking water from tap is safe, then, you will know the quality of minister is no difference from those of bn. The only difference is race and religion, itu saja.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Bercerita berkenaan pengangkutan teksi, grab dan MRT, saya fikir berada di pusat KL adalah mudah dengan adanya kemudahan tersebut.

    Perbandingan teksi dengan GRAB, saya fikir GRAB lebih selesa dan senang untuk diuruskan berbanding teksi.

    Kita boleh berdiri di mana mana sahaja dan lakukan tempahan GRAB. Ia cuma semurah rm5 sebiji kereta (kalau tak lupa) untuk ke Menara KL dari KLCC pada jam 3 petang.

    Mungkin lebih elok pemandu teksi semak kembali samada nak bertukar kepada GRAB pula selepas pandu teksi selama ini.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  11. Sri Sense Oct 21,2018 8:42 PM

    for example teksi driver boleh ikuti kursus customer service, how to handle customer, how to jadi tour guide, so that they can make more money, tourism kita pun boleh berkembang – Minstry patut bagi kursus ini!

  12. Sri Sense Oct 21,2018 5:49 PM

    Good evening Tun

    I tertarik baca al-kisah pemandu teksi marah2 kat Tun.

    I think this bukan perkara baru. Zaman anak I bawak UBER dulu pun sama.

    Sekarang UBER pun telah dimasukkan dalam Grab.

    Ada anak saudara suaminya buat dua2 UBER dan Grab, tapi bila dicantumkan UBER dan Grab mula kata susah cari makan. I also tak faham kalau dulu boleh kerja 2 tempat now cannot pulak bila dah tercantum.

    I ingat masa zaman anak I berhenti kerja, nak cari kerja baru yang sesuai lama tunggu, so oleh sebab dia ada commitment nak bayar kereta, credit card, dia bawa UBER.

    Tak sampai beberapa bulan, dah dapat kerja baru.

    Semasa dia bawa UBER dia mula dari subuh sampai pukul 7 malam baru balik. Hari Sabtu Ahad pun dia nak kerja. I suruh dia rest atleast sehari.

    Dia kata kalau tak buat begitu tak mampu bayar duit kereta dan credit card. Not only that dia terpaksa tukar kereta dengan kawan sebab anak pakai kereta 2 pintu, UBER mesti kereta 4 pintu. Dan kereta tak boleh lebih dari beberapa tahun, so kalau dia nak bawak my car or dad’s car, also tak layak.

    Apa itu UBER?

    Uber is a technology platform. Our smartphone apps connect driver-partners and riders. In cities where Uber operates, use your rider app to request a ride. When a nearby driver-partner accepts your request, your app displays an estimated time of arrival for the driver-partner heading to your pickup location. – source UBER

    Sebenarnya diMalaysia yang bawak UBER dulu kereta besar2. Bukan kereta brand PERODUA or PROTON, though ada but the big cars yang ada banyak pemintaan dan tempahan seperti ambil orang dari airport.

    Apa itu GRAB?

    GrabTaxi Holdings Pte. Ltd. (branded as simply Grab) is a Singapore-based technology company that offers the only ride-hailing, ride sharing, and logistics services through its app in Singapore and neighboring Southeast Asian nations Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia

    From what I know banyak orang suka UBER atau Grab sebab mereka bukan taxi cab service biasa.

    Uber dan Grab drivers pakai kereta sendiri, kalau nak pinjam kereta kawan pun mesti ada perjanjian bertulis.

    Their service more like calling your friend to ambil you kat lokasi. The drivers are usually friendly because most of them well educated. They tend to be a good tourist guide for outsiders and for local they are like your friends. There’s no need for you to sit at the back bila di ambil. There’s no need for you to jadi boss duduk belakang.

    I also difahamkan kenapa ramai tak nak naik teksi cab biasa because ada teksi tak suka pasang meter dan bau busuk.

    Ada certain kawasan kita akan nampak a few teksi berlonggok. Bila nak guna service mereka, mereka tak pasang meter. Mereka akan kenakan harga tertentu untuk bawa passenger ke tempat yang di ingini. Bila setuju baru jalan.

    To me apa yang nak upgrade sini adalah service teksi, bukan uber atau grab. Just saying!

    When the crooked bridge is built by force, nanti kereta, bas, taxi dan lorry from tebrau cannot enter, then how?

    Gonstan is it?

    Entahlah what is in the mind of the sotong biskut conspirators, buffologists and jebats will do.

    Mana tahu, mungkin mereka mahu gabungkan super power orang melayu dan orang islam kali ini to buy jet fighter to bomb singapore atas alasan singapura ini mesti dibelash kerana kiasu, biadap dan tidak mengenang budi dan bagi kami punya otomobil masuk.

    Apabila kena macc, mereka nampak hepi aja, mana ada takut punya.

    Sini bikin kereta dan highway nasional, singapura bikin nasional road dan public transport, you see the difference?

    There is no right or wrong in any political situations, henceforth, winner takes all, loser takes all.

    Blow water, dont wipe mouth is still best laughing medicine to release stress.

    Jika menjolok mata atau perasaan mu, jangan pandang, thats all we can do.

    I memang tak tau apa itu Jambatan Bengkok Mahathir. Malah bila ada usul nak buat semula, ada kawan bisik yang usul nak bodek Mahathir.

    I carilah dalam interweb, temui ini dalam astro awani. Terpulanglah pada admin nak siar atau tidak.

    Apa yang kita tahu tentang ‘jambatan bengkok’?

    KUALA LUMPUR: Isu jambatan bengkok kini hangat semula diperkatakan.

    Ia lantas mengingatkan masyarakat negara ini, terutamanya warga negeri Johor, tentang kemelut yang melanda isu tersebut.

    Semuanya bercetus daripada perbezaan pendapat dan kritikan oleh Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad terhadap pentadbiran perdana menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

    Jambatan bengkok atau dalam perancangan mahu dinamakan sebagai Jambatan Indah merupakan struktur jambatan sepanjang 1.4 kilometer yang diimpikan bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor sepanjang 1.06 kilometer yang sudah digunakan sejak tahun 1923.

    Idea pembinaan jambatan lurus telah dicetuskan dan kemudian diubah menjadi ‘bengkok’ kerana Singapura tidak mahu mengubah struktur penghubung di sempadan negaranya.

    Persetujuan Singapura pada awalnya tentang projek tersebut dikatakan diberikan secara ‘tidak rela hati sepenuhnya’ dan dilakukan hanya sekadar berdasarkan pendekatan berpakej.


    1) Melancarkan aliran lalu lintas ke Singapura dan sebaliknya.

    2) Kapal dagang atau pasukan keselamatan boleh belayar melalui Selat Tebrau (Selat Melaka ke Laut China Selatan dan ini akan merancakkan industri perkapalan dan pelabuhan negara iaitu Tanjung Pelepas dan Pasir Gudang.

    3) Kelancaran aliran air di Selat Tebrau mampu meningkatkan kualiti air dan juga alam sekitar.

    4) Pembukaan laluan air itu boleh menjadi pemangkin kepada pembangunan Iskandar Malaysia dan negeri Johor secara keseluruhan.


    5 Julai 1996: Perdana Menteri ketika itu, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah mencetuskan idea untuk merobohkan Tambak Johor yang menjadi pintu masuk selatan negara dan diganti dengan sebuah jambatan baharu.

    8 Julai 1996: Perdana Menteri Singapura ketika itu, Goh Chok Tong menganggap cadangan Malaysia untuk menggantikan Tambak Johor dengan jambatan baharu tidak mengejutkan republik itu.

    1 Ogos 1996: Mahathir umumkan jambatan baharu bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor bakal dibina secepat mungkin setelah mendapat persetujuan Singapura. Namun tiada perjanjian secara rasmi dimeterai.

    31 Julai 1997: Sebuah perbincangan telah berlangsung di antara Malaysia dan Singapura mengenai pembinaan jambatan baharu bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor.

    4 September 2001: Kedua-dua negara bersetuju dengan cadangan tambahan Malaysia berhubung pembinaan jambatan baharu yang dianggarkan siap pada tahun 2007.

    13 Jun 2004: Malaysia yang telah memulakan kerja-kerja pembinaan fasa awal kemudiannya menghentikan sementara pembinaan bagi membolehkan rundingan lanjut dibuat dengan Singapura.

    24 Januari 2005: Keputusan untuk membatal atau meneruskan pembinaan jambatan bernilai RM2 bilion itu terus berlarutan dan bergantung kepada hasil rundingan dengan Singapura.

    27 Ogos 2005: Tiada kata putus dibuat oleh Singapura berkaitan projek berkenaan, namun Malaysia bertegas mahu meneruskannya.

    6 Februari 2006: Singapura sedia bekerjasama dengan Malaysia untuk meneruskan pembinaan jambatan tersebut tetapi meletakkan dua syarat iaitu menjual pasir kepada republik itu dan membuka ruang udara Johor untuk keperluan latihan jet pejuangnya.

    9 Mac 2006: Malaysia meneruskan kerja-kerja awal pembinaan jambatan bengkok atau ‘Jambatan Indah’ berikutan Singapura tidak memberikan kata putus mengenai projek jambatan lurus.

    Seni bina jambatan bengkok itu lebih tinggi dan membolehkan kapal-kapal kecil melepasinya namun Singapura enggan berkompromi dengan konsep itu.

    12 April 2006: Perdana Menteri selepas Mahathir, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi memutuskan bahawa Malaysia menghentikan pembinaan jambatan bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor.

    “Kerajaan Malaysia telah memutuskan untuk tidak meneruskan pembinaan jambatan bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor. Keputusan ini dibuat setelah mengambil kira suara dan sentimen rakyat Malaysia keseluruhannya terutama sekali berkenaan bekalan pasir dan ruang udara. Kerajaan juga membuat keputusan untuk memberhentikan semua rundingan bersabit jambatan tersebut.” ~ Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, 12 April 2006.

    26 Jun 2010: Sultan Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar bertitah agar cadangan pembinaan jambatan bengkok dipertimbangkan semula.

    “Saya yakin seluruh rakyat Johor berasa gembira dengan terbinanya bangunan JB Sentral yang serba lengkap dan indah ini, namun masih terdapat kekurangan dan kecacatannya apabila komponen utamanya iaitu jambatan masih belum dilaksanakan hingga hari ini. Sekali lagi, saya ingin menyeru kerajaan Persekutuan agar dapat mempertimbangkan rancangan asal pembinaan jambatan yang ditunggu-tunggu oleh rakyat Johor.” – Sultan Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, 26 Jun 2010.

    17 April 2014: Mahathir sekali lagi membuat kenyataan mengenai mengapa pentingnya jambatan itu dibina sewaktu menghadiri sebuah acara di Iskandar Malaysia.

    “Jika ia adalah sebuah jambatan, adakah kita masih perlukan sebuah tambak? Tambak ini menghalang air mengalir keluar dan ia juga sangat kotor. Ia menyebabkan laut menjadi sangat kotor dan terdapat kesesakan lalu lintas yang teruk di Johor Bahru kerana jambatan tidak dibina” – Tun Mahathir Mohamad, 17 April 2014


    1) Terbinanya jambatan bengkok bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor akan membolehkan bot-bot kecil dan kapal bersaiz sederhana merentasi Selat Tebrau dengan mudah. Selama ini kapal-kapal yang dalam pelayaran jauh perlu mengelilingi Singapura. Kemungkinan pengurangan kapal yang singgah ke pelabuhan di republik itu difahamkan menjadi perkara yang ‘dibimbangi’ pihak Singapura.

    2) Dengan pembinaan jambatan bengkok, aliran air di Selat Tebrau dijangka bertambah baik kerana selama ini ia terhalang struktur Tambak Johor. Aliran air laut yang lebih terbuka secara tidak langsung memberi kelebihan kepada kualiti air dan beberapa pihak menjangkakan ekosistem laut di Selat Tebrau akan menunjukkan penambahbaikan.

    3) Walau bagaimanapun, terdapat kebimbangan kecil dalam kalangan pengusaha penternakan kupang sangkar di beberapa kampung nelayan berdekatan terutamanya di Kampung Senibong. Mereka mengatakan bahawa keadaan air di Selat Tebrau sekarang ini yang tenang dan penuh nutrien membolehkan benih kupang hidup subur.

    Jika aliran Selat Tebrau sudah bebas dibuka, mereka bimbang benih kupang akan hanyut dan tidak melekat pada sangkar. Lagipun, para penternak kupang di kampung tersebut percaya bahawa benih induk kupang kebanyakannya berada di Tambak Johor.

    “Jika ia adalah sebuah jambatan, adakah kita masih perlukan sebuah tambak? Tambak ini menghalang air mengalir keluar dan ia juga sangat kotor. Ia menyebabkan laut menjadi sangat kotor dan terdapat kesesakan lalu lintas yang teruk di Johor Bahru kerana jambatan tidak dibina” – Tun Mahathir Mohamad, 17 April 2014


    Walau apapun yang didebatkan mengenainya, sebenarnya tidak ada sebarang perjanjian yang ditandatangani oleh Malaysia dan Singapura mengenai pembinaan jambatan bengkok tersebut.

    Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, Jabatan Peguam Negara Malaysia mendapati bahawa Malaysia tidak boleh membina jambatan berkenaan secara bersendirian (unilateral) kerana terikat dengan Perjanjian Air Johor-Singapura, Perjanjian Wayleave dan Perjanjian Pemisahan 1965.

    Good morning Tun!

    The topic of the 2 listed companies touched limit down hangat di perkatakan dalam circle KLSE. Forums, FB, newspapers. Some retail investors even kata ini semua angkara fake news!

    I like to share here, apa yang I baca dalam MMO

    From Akalbudi to Mastoro: Every alleged player linked to Zahid’s RM42m charges

    KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 — The names of several companies surfaced in Umno president and former home minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s 45 charges yesterday, including a public listed firm which supplied Malaysian passport components.

    But who are these companies that you have probably never heard of?

    Here’s a quick look at them, based on Malay Mail’s checks of records on the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) and news reports:

    Alleged criminal breach of trust (CBT) of charity funds (RM20.8 million)

    1. Yayasan Akalbudi

    What is it: According to its company profile lodged with SSM, this foundation formerly named Yayasan Budi was founded in 1997 as a public limited company limited by guarantee.

    Its nature of business is to “receive and administer funds for the eradication of poverty relevant to the poverty eradication programme”.

    Little else is known about this foundation, which appeared to have surfaced only this year in news reports despite its long history on paper. Luckily, Zahid has shared some additional information in the past few months after questioning by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over the use of the foundation’s funds to pay his and his wife’s credit card bills.

    Zahid had clarified that the payment was an honest mistake by the foundation’s paymaster and that he has since repaid it.

    In Zahid’s own words: The foundation is owned by his family, with its funds originating from him and “several other friends who wanted to donate” to welfare and religious work such as the construction of mosques and tahfiz schools.

    “I’m in fact the biggest donor to this charity foundation owned by my family, which runs religious schools and welfare homes.”

    Link to charges: Zahid is accused of 10 counts of criminal breach of trust as the trustee of Yayasan Akalbudi involving RM20.8 million of the foundation’s funds. The charges were brought under Section 409 of the Penal Code, and are all punishable by a jail term of between two and 20 years, and caning and fine.

    Corruption charges during Zahid’s time as home minister (RM21.25 million)

    A) MyEG projects

    First up, what is MyEG? Public-listed firm MyEG Services Bhd’s website states that it builds, owns and operates an electronic channel that delivers government agencies’ services to Malaysians and businesses. Services include online payment of summonses from the police and the Road Transport Department.

    (Note: MyEG is not alleged to have given bribes to Zahid; it is merely mentioned in some of the charges.)

    MyEG’s response: In a Bursa announcement yesterday, MyEG’s board of directors said that it had on the same day received a letter from MACC which confirmed and clarified that the company and its board are not under investigation and are not a party to the investigation which led to Zahid’s charges.

    MyEG had earlier said in a separate Bursa announcement that it had never made any payments to any party during the process to secure any concession contracts awarded by the government.

    Don’t blink, watch out for the web of connections below:

    2. Mastoro Kenny IT Consultant & Services

    What is it: SSM records say it is a company solely owned by a Malaysian by the name of Kumaraguru Muthusamy, and that it acts as a “consultant” and deals in “supply and services, IT software, web portal programming, computer accessories”.

    This company started business on August 19, 2016 and terminated its business on August 18, 2017.

    Link to charges: Between July 15, 2016 and February 8, 2017, this company was alleged to have paid Zahid a total of RM13.25 million in bribes through 24 cheques, in the hopes that Zahid would help it obtain MyEG projects that were being handled by the Home Ministry.

    Status: Defunct. (The only company in this list which has stopped operating, according to SSM records.)

    MyEG’s clarification: The company’s Bursa announcement yesterday said that both it and its board have no knowledge of Mastoro or its board of directors, and had never been in contact with the latter’s board or representatives.

    MyEG also said it had no knowledge of the dealings between Mastoro and Zahid; and had never awarded any projects or had any dealings with Mastoro; and had never appointed any vendor or contractors in any of its dealings with the Home Ministry.

    3. Jogabonito Jewellery & Diamonds

    What is it: This business is solely owned by the same owner as Mastoro: Kumaraguru. It has a slightly longer history as it started its business on April 4, 2011, with a stated business of “supplying, selling and buying gold and diamonds”.

    Link to charges: Mastoro allegedly paid RM250,000 (from the total RM13.25 million) to Zahid through a Public Bank cheque issued by this jewellery company via a man named Junaith Asharab Md. Shariff.

    Status: Active

    4. Berani & Jujur Trading

    What is it: This company’s name when translated would mean “Brave & Honest” literally. SSM records show two companies with the same name and the same ownership and business particulars, including one that had expired after being in business from March 2009 to April 2010.

    The remaining active Berani & Jujur Trading names a 46-year-old Malaysian man — Junaith Ashrab Md Shariff — as its sole proprietor, with its business stated as the management of agricultural activities. This business started on July 12, 2012.

    Link to charges: Mastoro allegedly paid RM5 million (of the same RM13.25 million) through 10 RHB Islamic Bank Berhad cheques issued by this agricultural management firm.

    Berani & Jujur’s owner Junaith Ashrab shares almost the same spelling as Junaith Asharab who was named as allegedly passing RM8 million (also of the RM13.25 million) through 13 RHB Islamic Bank Berhad cheques issued by Mastoro in bribes to Zahid. Malay Mail is unable to conclusively determine if these two individuals are the same person.

    Status: Active

    B) Alleged bribery for Malaysian passport chips project

    5. Datasonic Group Berhad

    What is it: This is a public-listed company that was incorporated on March 13, 2008 and with RM135 million of share capital issued, with its nature of business being “investment holding and provision of management services to its subsidiaries, acquire and hold shares or stock business on datacard equipment and embossing system”.

    It has 14 directors and 21 shareholders, with the shareholders including institutions such as Lembaga Tabung Haji and those linked to banks, according to the company’s September 26 records with SSM.

    Link to charges: Zahid was charged with allegedly receiving from Datasonic’s director Chew Ben Ben a total of RM6 million in bribes through two cheques on April 26, 2017, which allegedly resulted in the group’s unit Datasonic Technologies Sdn Bhd (DTSB) being appointed via purported “direct negotiation” with the Home Ministry to implement the supply of 12.5 million chips in Malaysia’s polycarbonate passports’ biodata page over the course of five years.

    Datasonic Group’s response: In an announcement to Bursa Malaysia yesterday, Datasonic Group asserted that neither the company nor any of its directors had issued the payment in relation to the 12.5 million passport chips supply as reported.

    It said instead that DTSB had in April 2012 won through “open tender” a five-year contract to supply passport polycarbonate datapages and printing system, adding that DTSB was subsequently awarded on December 15, 2015 the project to supply the 12.5 million chips.

    Datasonic Group said it was awarded the 2015 contract based on value proposition of enhanced chips security (with chips bonded into the polycarbonate datapage instead of the passport cover’s back), as well as its pricing that was lower than the previous vendor which, it said, resulted in the Malaysian government saving RM56.25 million over a five-year period.

    Status: Existing

    6. Sarana Kencana Sdn Bhd

    What is it: According to SSM records, this is a private limited company incorporated on September 25, 2003 and formerly with the name of Bahana Kencana. Its nature of business is “investment holding and provision of management and consulting services”, with two directors bearing the title of Datuk and Datin respectively also being the sole two shareholders listed.

    Sarana Kencana’s two directors are also listed as among the shareholders of Datasonic Group. One of them is both a director and a manager in Datasonic Group, based on SSM records via the company’s documents as of September 26.

    Link to charges: The RM6 million bribe allegedly paid by Datasonic Group to Zahid was purportedly via two Malayan Banking Berhad cheques owned by Sarana Kencana.

    Status: Existing

    C) Services related to migrant workers

    8. Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd

    What is it: According to SSM records, it is a private limited company incorporated in 1996 that handles “general trading” and “investment holding”, with RM1 million of share capital. It has two directors, who are also the only two shareholders, include a 47-year-old Malaysian man named Azlan Shah Jaffril.

    Its latest available financial information in SSM records shows that it posted a revenue of RM923,160, with profit at RM133,699, as of the financial year ending December 2016.

    This company’s name was mentioned in a report on the controversy over the outsourcing of the Malaysian government’s immigration duties to private firms, and was one of the companies alleged to have received additional payments that burdened poor Nepali migrant workers seeking to come to Malaysia.

    Link to charges: The company’s director Azlan Shah is alleged to have paid RM2 million in bribes through three cheques issued by the company, which purportedly resulted in its appointment as the operator of a One Stop Centre (OSC) in Pakistan and Nepal. These charges were alleged to have occurred during the August 3, 2017 to March 15, 2018 period.

    Status: Existing

    All eight corruption charges linked to these projects are each punishable by a maximum 20-year jail term, and a fine of either RM10,000 or five times the amount of the bribe, whichever is higher.

    It’s not just companies that were mentioned in most of the 45 charges faced by Zahid, but also a law firm.

    9. Lewis & Co

    What is it: According to the Malaysian Bar’s directory of law firms, it is the only such law firm in Peninsular Malaysia with this name and with its office address stated as located at Menara UOA Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur.

    It was mentioned in the charges as having a Maybank account through which Zahid purportedly received the alleged bribes in the form of cheques.

    In Zahid’s money-laundering charges, he was accused of giving orders for illicit funds totalling almost RM59.28 million to be deposited as fixed deposit into two accounts via the same Maybank account of the law firm. Zahid had also allegedly ordered for the purchase of two bungalows with RM5.9 million through a cheque purportedly issued by this account.

    Zahid was also alleged to have ordered a 46-year-old Malaysian man named Omar Ali Abdullah to convert RM6,885,270.20 (RM6.8 million) in cash into 30 cheques to be passed to Lewis & Co for the purchase of fixed deposits in Maybank.

    (Note: The mention of this law firm is not meant to imply any wrongdoing on the part of the law firm, as law firms can hold money in trust for their clients, such as in transactions involving the buying and selling of properties. It is unclear if Zahid is a client of the law firm.)

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,


    Dalam kamus rakyat Malaysia sebelum ini tidak pernah ada perkataan ‘kleptokrasi’ sehinggalah DOJ mendendangkannya dan inilah sebab utama rakyat menolak kerajaan terdahulu pada PRU 14 baru2 ini.

    Mari kita ulangkaji makna kleptokrasi iaitu kerajaan di bawah pemerintahan pemimpin2 korup yang menggunakan kuasa dan kedudukan untuk memperolehi ‘kickback’ atau rasuah bagi memperluaskan kekayaan peribadi dan kuasa politik.

    Lantas apa yang hendak dihairankan kalau bekas pemimpin No. 1 dan No. 2 mereka didakwa dengan berpuluh2 tuduhan?

    Lagi banyak tuduhan lagi banyak menunjukkan pihak pendakwaan telah menjalankan amanah dengan cermat teliti dan bukan semborono dan bukan hendak mereka-reka mengikut arahan sesiapa dan inilah fakta nama dia bukan auta.

    Satu dua bolehlah auta-auta macam ada orang itu kena tetapi ini betul2 punya bukan cobaan..

    Kita harus menerima dengan hati yang terbuka sebab ini fakta bukan ikut rasa atau warna kulit, yang salah tetap salah dan kalau ada pemimpin PH yang korup dan anda ada bukti laporkan pada SPRM dan kami pun bersedia menyokong anda demi kebenaran.


    NK : Jika ada yang mengundi PH pada PRU 14 lalu atas sebab lain – minta maaf cakaplah anda memang jenis pandai tidak boleh diikut dan bodoh tidak boleh diajar tetapi jangan menyesal PRU 15 kan ada 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Dear Chedet,

    I am in the writing mood today. Thus, I write about mental illness.

    Now after 20 years dealing with mental disorder, I like to say that it is not an easy illness to deal with. The illness is bad, but the medication is even worse.

    My illness is due to the inability of the brain to regulate the dopamine surge. Too much leads to psychosis and too little leads to dark depression. This swing between 2 polarities is what causes Bipolar Disorder.

    Medication is not as easy as popping a few pills. The meds alter the chemical in the body which cause a set of problems of their own. Hence the medication is as bad if not worse.

    Mental illness is a disability. To put it plainly people with mental illness cannot earn a living. In my case my judgement *go[d] effected.

    *External intervention. It’s a cipher.

    Therefore the challenge is to support our livelihood and in my case, the RM500 per month medication in addition to the various supplements which is another RM250 a month.

    I am fortunate to have a wife who cares and supportive. If not I will be on the streets.

    It’s not easy living with mental illness. As much as there are sympathizers, you are basically alone. Since 2009 I am pretty much a hermit. Nobody want to deal with a crazy person.

    If Dr Wan Azizah is serious about mental illness, then it has to start with creating awareness that mental illness is curable. We have our highs and lows. At one time I though I was beyond redemption. Between 1999 to 2014 I was a goner. However after the ECT and constant consumption of the best medicine available, I managed to be functioning again.

    My parting thought to you is the quality of my health improves drastically the day I improve my diet and lifestyle.

    Chedet, mental illness effects 1 out of 4 people. As we become a develop nation, we will see the number rising. My advice is, have a sound plan to address the various challenges the patients face including social and economical. We got to nip it while it is still manageable.

    There, I said my piece. My input towards RMK 11.

    Sine cera,

    MSC 0072

  18. HBT456 Oct 19,2018 10:48 PM

    Yup, i am very dissappointed and fed up with all these shallow and short sighted political power strugglings.

    It is meaningless to tell us to be patriotic and love this country when the atas punya vvips tak behave, tak jaga nama baik negara mahupun negeri mereka.

    All they care is absolute power to rich themselves in the name of ketuanan melayu mahupun ketuanan muslim.

    Can invisible hand, atau measure last forever?

    Once the public trust is betrayed, chances of earning back the public trust is almost zero.

    Therefore, never be too serious with the game of numbers since no one know what will they do when next general election is called.

  19. HBT456 Oct 19,2018 10:27 PM

    If blaming and finger pointing is the way out, then, there is nothing outsiders can do.

    Pilih kasih is not something new, therefore, dont get angry with all these mess.


    Because we voters too to bear the responsibility to vote them in power.

    When bad things happened, there must be a good reason.

    It is either they learned, or they dont.

    Never count chickens before eggs hatch because no one knows what going in there.

  20. HBT456 Oct 19,2018 10:16 PM

    Refer leo moggie, then, we can see the picture of what is in the mind of tdm.

    No need to marah, sindir, curse, boycott, sabotage or tunjuk perasaan since we have general election in every 5 years.

    What will happen, it will happen.

    What will not happen, it will not happen.

    Bn ke, atau ph ke, it makes no different.

    Jika tarak happy, felt being marginalized, then vote the next opposition la to sit in putrajaya, habis cerita.

  21. HBT456 Oct 19,2018 10:09 PM

    Boleh, apa2 pun boleh as long as the land is under perak what, tak payah minta izin since everyone is aware of land title is under the state’s sultan.

    Same apply to other states too.

    But, when come to sovereign of another country, yup, you kena minta izin to show we are not a rogue or pariah country.

    As for labuan, penang atau melaka, just get izin from the cm of the states, habis cerita.

    As for kl and klang valley, it is up to sultan to appoint their next of throne to rotate in every 5 years to sit in istana baru negara at sri hartamas at jalan duta.

    Therefore, whoever become the next perdana menteri, we still need to work, live and enjoy life heathily, less stress and less inegative nfluences of bloodshed, sengsara, mahafiruan atau kezaliman.

    Jika menjolok mata, atau perasaan mu, it is you change channel, move out, or migrate, itu saja.

    Yup, takkan lah hang tuah hilang di dunia.

    Salam YAB Tun

    Ini berita terbaru

    Bursa suspends Datasonic and MyEG’s PDT, IDSS – Bursa Malaysia has suspended the proprietary day trading (PDT) and intraday short selling (IDSS) for Datasonic Group Bhd and My EG Services Bhd (MyEG). In a filing today, Bursa said the suspension came after the last done price of these stocks dropped more than 15 sen or 15% from the reference price. Hence, the stock exchange said PDT and IDSS activities for these counters will only be enabled next Monday (Oct 22).

    Yup both counters touched limit down.


    Tadi hubby kata dia tak tau apa itu jambatan bengkok, lagi tak faham bila Tun kata tak payah minta izin Singapore. I said to him, that means an extension to yang sedia ada, it is located in Malaysia therefore tidak payah minta izin Singapore. My guess la, I also don’t know.

    Then I start fikir, kalau Perak ada projek semacam jambatan bengkok also good, more business opportunities and also peluang pekerjaan, tak payah la rakyat Perak macam rakyat Kelantan berhijrah jauh cari makan. Just saying!

    And yes Tun, I really hope all jujur buat kerja. Seperti Tun pernah kata bukan kerana dendam, lets keep it that way. Kalau betul salah ok, jangan main tempek tempek pertuduhan ok.

    All the best!

  23. Hajar Oct 19,2018 6:17 PM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Izinkan saya Tun:

    1. Ish..Ish…AG lantikan Tun memang hebat! Dalam setiap pendakwaan, biasanya ada berpuluh-puluh pertuduhan dilontarkan sekali harung terhadap orang kena tuduh (OKT). Wow! 45 pertuduhan terhadap Presiden UMNO! Kelas gitu! Mesti ada lagi kan…Mesti korek/cari sampai ke lubang cacing. Taktik guna mahkamah untuk lumpuhkan lawan (seperti di Singapura).

    2. Tetapi, nampaknya dalam era Malaysia Baharu, cuma ada segolongan orang saja yang korup dan jahat. Yang korup/jahat semuanya berada dalam Pembangkang (yang dulunya Kerajaan). Kesemua pemimpin-pemimpin PH dan para penyokong PH semuanya baik-baik dan sempurna belaka. Alahai…Logikkah? Ini cara ISLAMkah?

    3. Rakyat biasa yang tidak ada kedudukan, jika didapati mencuri atau terlibat dalam rasuah, walaupun jumlahnya cuma ratusan atau ribuan Ringgit sahaja (saya tidak katakan mereka tidak salah – mencuri/ rasuah/merompak/jenayah/etc. memang perbuatan salah), pasti didakwa kerana mereka tiada KUASA untuk menggugurkan segala pertuduhan.

    4. Kes En. Lim Guan Eng dan beberapa kes yang melibatkan orang sebelah sana dengan mudah digugurkan kerana mereka ‘kononnya’ di kalangan orang-orang yang suci bersih.

    5. Entahlah. Para pemimpin yang melompat ke pihak sebelah sana secara otomatik jadi suci bersih jugakah? Ish..Ish..Ish…Dulu, Anwar Ibrahim disucikan sebersih-bersihnya oleh bekas Pembangkang sebaik saja beliau menyertai mereka.

    6. Pelik sungguh dunia politik ini. Jika masuk ‘geng’ sendiri semuanya tiba-tiba jadi baik/suci, walaupun berperangai teruk / buruk!

    7. Apa pun, ingatlah putaran hidup ini. Kadang kala kita di atas, dan ada kalanya kita di bawah. Jadi, dalam apa saja tindakan, eloklah berpada-pada dan jangan keterlaluan.

    8. Saya cadangkan SPRM siasat juga kesemua NGOs dan Yayasan-yayasan yang turut menerima (meminta) sumbangan/dana dari orang persendirian dan orang ramai /etc.. Ini baru ADIL dan saksama, dan tidak memilih-milih (saya bercakap secara umum). Amanahlah dalam menjalankan tugas.

    9. Kepada Tun khasnya, dan Kerajaan PH amnya (termasuk agensi-agensi/badan Kerajaan yang pro-PH – macam lalang), cukup-cukuplah dan berpada-padalah. Saya memang menentang keras korupsi dan perlakuan salah guna kuasa, tetapi jika cara menanganinya dilakukan secara memilih-milih dan TIDAK ADIL DAN SAKSAMA, anda semua sama sahaja dengan rejim Najib. Maaf cakap, sekarang saya tidak sokong mana-mana pihak sebab dua-dua pun sama hampeh! Berubahlah! (kepada Kerajaan PH dan Pembangkang).

    P/S: Kesian melihat orang yang sudah buat salah, tetapi enggan mengaku, dan masih lagi membuat andaian2 dan tuduhan2 bodoh terhadap orang lain. Susah berhujah dengan golongan dung* ni…Benarlah, “kebodohan tidak ada hadnya…”

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

  24. HBT456 Oct 19,2018 5:41 PM

    When you know big problem is coming, and yet you still ignore these signs, yup noah’s ark.

    Kiasu ke, tak tahu malu ke, jeles ke, revenge ke, suci ke, kiamsiap, cantas ke lalang ke, donation ke, beggars ke, refugees ke, lobby atau korupsi, it is none of my business anymore as we already voiced our stand in the last ballot boxes through voting process.

  25. HouseWife Oct 19,2018 3:27 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    The story of a country in pain the moment Tun exited and pressured tremendously under the stupidity and kleptocracy of previous leadership will be historically remembered. Although now proudly attained peaceful transition people continue to doubt, to have suspicion and unsettled feelings with the new leadership. These new heroes are constantly under the radar and scrutinized, expecting to operate as per enclosed in the manifesto no matter how it appears to be difficult and impossible at this time. Tun and friends are having a hard time explaining the whys some can and the whys some cannot. It all involves sensibility without severing people’s confidence. The people are not asking them to ignore or shy away from their promises to extract the manifesto into tangible and positive results in a short span of time. What the people ask is for them to acknowledge their weaknesses and be frank and not hide or fired back insensibly. Mistakes of course are inevitable but it shouldn’t be because for years as opposition has seen the many atrocious crimes and conduct by the previous leaders, so therefore they should have learned to not repeat the bad administration.

    Anyway, we should at least extent our support. Let us give time for Tun and friends to spell out strategic moves and services into definite and positive results. Let us not collapse the bridge that has only been built for 5 months. Let us not pull this country back to its lowest level when it was under the klepto era. Let’s embrace this new beginning and try to maintain it for as long as possible. The slack sleepy problematic ones who scamp their work can expect to be towed away.

    I have nothing against those awarded datukships as long as they’ve done their services to the community and country but the newbies not so quick la. Nowadays to get title datuk is like kacang putih…anyone and everyone can get one. But the ones who really deserve were never remembered, title given when it was too late. Never court for titles, earn them.

    Tun, global stocks fall because of saudi arabia role in khashoggi case. What is the Malaysian government stance in this case? I believe Malaysia has nothing against saudi arabia. But then again does Malaysia need to adjust its relationship with the royal crown prince who claimed absolute monarchy power?

    Under your leadership Malaysia will never again stoop low to any country, big or small, right Tun. Malaysia is safe under Tun’s premiership. May Allah bestow Tun with beautiful life and great health to keep Tun leading us, InsyaAllah.

  26. musato Oct 19,2018 3:18 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya kira saya perlu tulis ini.

    Orang orang yang saya jumpa pada perkiraan saya adalah orang yang setia dan mengagumi Tun. Jadi, saya dah curi pengikut Tun….hahaah

    Di mana orang mengenali Tun Dr Mahathir, maka orang secara tidak langsung akan turut mengenali Tun Dr Siti Hasmah.

    Saya fikir adalah mudah Tun Siti menerima keadaan bertemu orang ramai kerana Tun Mahathir adalah orang yang berjawatan rasmi dan itu menjadi kebiasaan harian selama ini.

    Sudah tentu Pn Mai dan anak anak bersembang dengan kami sekeluarga. Saya fikir saya ini neutral dari segi memberi pendapat berkenaan politik dan negara, walaupun saya jadi ahli Bersatu…yang tak betul bagi saya tetap tidak betul.

    Saya tidak taksub pada pemimpin walaupun pada Tun Mahathir.

    Saya fikir begitu juga dengan pandangan wife saya. Sebenarnya saya tak tahu yang wife saya bayar sendiri makanan dia seorang masa itu….itu sebab saya sayang dia😊

    Di hari lain kemudiannya, tiada rezeki bagi Harliza untuk berjumpa dengan wife saya. Dia kata dia tak ikut, walau saya ajak teman.

    Sudah jadi kebiasaan saya untuk melarang wife saya dari mencampuri urusan saya sebelum ini.

    Walaubagaimanapun, di lain masa dan waktu, InsyaAllah kita ketemu lagi.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Good morning Tun

    Membina hospital atau klinik kerajaan yang baru adalah untuk penduduk setempat.

    I sekarang pun dah tak nak pergi hospital dan klinik kerajaan. I kecik hati. Bayangkan, tiada cukup kertas, tiada cukup ubat, tunggu lama nak jumpa doktor, nak jumpa pula bukan selalu tapi 3 bulan sekali. Memang sakit hati.

    Ramai yang berpendapat negara demokrasi sepatutnya ada kemudahan seperti free education dan free hospital/perubatan. Bukan sahaja free air paip. 🙁

    Salam Chedet,

    Firstly congratulation on RMK 11. I like that very much.

    Now, regarding this article; YOU ROCK MAN!

    I am never supportive of absolute power – power corrupts. Therefore it must be government of the people for the people by the people. When you said the Western Democracy was only 200 years old. you probably referring to the industrial revolution. Probably you are right (I doubt it LOL). It went all the way to the Greeks. Therefore the word demo stems from the word demi, which means people.

    One of the very thing the modern democracy founders did was the separation of church and the administration, which was what originally mooted by the Greeks; the separation of religion and government.

    I highly recommend you to read the “Republic” by Plato. It is an eye opener I tell you.

    So Chedet, at 93 you finally becoming pro Western democracy? Never to late to teach an old dog a new trick huh?

    I got to let you go Sir, I am late for my marathon training.

    Sine cera,

    MSC 0072

    P.s. I absolutely agree with you that Malaysians are timid. Boy, you got the spirit.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya tak tahu nak tulis apa.

    Tapi saya fikir ramai pembuat keputusan kerajaan berfikir panjang pasal kerja masa PM Najib.

    Apa yang aku buat? Aku berkhidmat untuk siapa?

    Kerana berfikiran semacam begitu berkenaan kerja, Jeb (Ammar Alfian) – filem PASKAL (kisah benar) telah berpaling tadah dan sertai lanun filipina.

    Yang mana operasi PASKAl pada 2011 adalah di pelantar minyak.

    Saya sentiasa mencari sedikit masa untuk tengok anak anak gembira dan main bersama sama ketika ini. Ketika masih tinggal sekali, sebelum keluar belajar di asrama atau mana mana (kita tidak tahu masa hadapan).

    Saya pilih kolam renang. Yang mana semua kanak kanak suka selain ia boleh bina keyakinan diri.

    Saya sendiri belajar sekali.

    Saya beritahu coach, walaupun saya boleh ajar sikit sikit berkenaan teknik, tapi biarlah saya masukkan dalam kelas untuk coach ajar.

    Ia sekadar untuk bersuka ria, melepaskan lelah dan membina keyakinan anak anak serta merapatkan hubungan keluarga.

    Kita bekerja untuk kebahagian keluarga.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    Permit me to interact with Kris Karat @ Najib’s butt kisser.

    Najib’s time has passed away. The world has changed especially in Malaysia turning into a kleptocracy kingdom since Tun left.

    Kris Karat should feel sad after all his mentor butt is no longer there in power for him to kiss.

    Now you can say lah what you like but the PH government has until 2023 to govern and if you want to go backwards then do vote for BN at the next GE 15.

    Footnote : A backward Malaysia is when you vote for BN (Backward Nation) @ GE 15

    Good evening Tun

    I rasa yang mana kena under AMLA, bayar denda sahaja, tak payah jail time. Denda pun dah million2 ringgit untuk satu kesalahan.

    Berkenaan dengan bina hospital, setau I under medical tourism, hospital government tak masuk dalam list.

    According to wikipedia

    The majority of the foreign patients seeking medical treatments in Malaysia are from Indonesia, with smaller numbers of foreign patients coming from India, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Europe, the USA and the Middle East.[6][7] In 2008, Indonesians comprised 75% of all foreign patients receiving care in Malaysia; Europeans, 3%; Japanese, 3%; Singaporeans, 1% and citizens from Middle Eastern countries, 1%.[8] By 2011, Indonesians comprised 57% of all foreign patients in Malaysia as the number of patients of other nationalities grew.[9] Health insurance companies in Singapore have recently permitted their policyholders to be treated in Malaysia where services are cheaper than in Singapore.

    Hanya private hospital yang ada medical facilities cukup sahaja yang layak.

    That’s all for tonight.

    Sleep tight!

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Dr M: Malaysia does not need Singapore’s consent to build ‘crooked bridge’

    In that case, please just build the ‘CROOKED BRIDGE’.

    Definitely, you have my consent Tun 🙂 🙂 🙂 . Go ahead…

    Just ignore the ‘noise’ made by the ‘kiasus’ in this blog.

    And of course we do not need to worry about the ‘kiasus’ in that small island. They need to learn how to respect their neighbor. We are building the ‘crooked bridge’ within our water.

    Just cancel the HSR project, which is not viable and not worthwhile since it’s overpriced. Use the saved money to build the bridge.

    I read somewhere that the cost of bulding the ‘crooked bridge’ is around RM4.4 Billion.

    I support Tun 100% on this matter.

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

    I am not worry at all because majority of our young population is more educated, peace loving and they know how to make judgement themselves.

    But, if those mps insisted to do it, then, i can predict no one will help eventhough they shouted the wolf is coming to eat my goats again.

    There is no right or wrong in political situations.

    But, when they know it is wrong, and yet they chosen to do it, hakikatnya, umno ended at the reign of najib, bukan sesame atau bag termahal bijan.

  36. HBT456 Oct 18,2018 9:07 PM

    Yup, i sure hope that they have peace in the end since wealth does not pass through 3 generations if they still stuck and live inside the coconut shell, atau di bawah tempurung.

    P/s: Changing law is very difficult and tough because no living being is perfect. Henceforth, general election is the best way forward to get the mandate from the voters via multi-party system, habis cerita.

    I am not sure what are in the mind of conspirators, buffologists and jebats on the idea to build the crooked bridge on johor straits first even though the nearest neigbour said no.

    I put in my terms so that i can understand the situation clearer.

    Macam ini, i want to park my car inside my neighbour’s house, and my neigbour said, no you cannot park inside my house because the parking is taken.

    I got mad and furious, i drove the car in front of the gate and block the parking entrance so that i can show the whole neigbourhood that it is absolute bad of my neigbour not to allow me to park inside the house eventhough it is empty?

    Adakah itu niat murni atau jahat?

    I take this now as an opportunity to ask this moment The Sotong Najib ,most Biskut UMNO members and the opposition of the accusation before of Tun Mahathir wanting his son Mukhliz Mahathir to take over his seat as Malaysia PM. Where is the reality as in today,Tun has appoint Anwar as his succesor.It has been 3 seat, Badawi,Najib and now Anwar that Tun has not name his son Mukhliz as his successor nor his Regime .Why none accuse The Lee of S’pore of such , whom his son take the seat immediately after Goh.
    I,m proving the accusation of the Opposition towards Tun .Where is the reality today .Why stops probing of Tun getting Mukhliz to seat ?

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,


    Adalah disyorkan pihak berwajib benarkanlah sahaja pihak sebelah sana mengadakan perhimpunan dan perarakan bagi menyatakan sokongan terhadap pemimpin2 ulung lagi terbilang mereka.

    Kasihan mereka semua baik2 belaka dan lakukan demi pemimpin2 yang bersih dan parti yang bersih sedangkan Bersih dahulu pun buat untuk rakyat pada skala besar tetapi tiada pula kekecohan atau kecederaan maka apatah lagi mereka pada skala yang kecil ini.

    Lagipun kita kena Ingat mereka ini tidakpun merusuh atau turun ke jalan apabila kalah pilihanraya umum yang BERSIH (yang keputusannya lambat dikeluarkan untuk pastikan benar2 bersih) maka atas alasan apa kita mahu menyekat hak kebebasan mereka.

    Kami rasa elok dibenarkan sahaja semua ini jangan sampai ada yang mengatakan kerajaan PH tidak gentleman sedangkan masa kita pembangkang dahulu kita yang mempeloporinya.

    Silakan Lokman Beruang teruskan dan kumpulkan seramai mungkin kerana ahli anda sahaja sudah 10% dari penduduk Malaysia harus tenggelam KL belum lagi penyimpati yang bukan ahli tu 🙂 .

    Good morning Tun

    Not a very good morning for me. Semalam dan kelmarin baca about Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi, gruesome stories of the way he died. Seram!

    Okay, so that means, tiada perjanjian hitam putih antara PM sekarang dan PM-in-waiting. Kalau a lady-in-waiting or court lady is a female personal assistant at a court, royal or feudal, attending on a royal woman or a high-ranking noblewoman. Hmmm…

    Kita tinggal interview BBC, kita balik pada Minister. I nak komen sikit cucu angkat Tun. Dari segi age pangkat cucu la. 🙂

    I think this young minister perlu orang tua jadi penasihat. Someone like Rafidah Aziz. And dia kena belajar dan ikut, bukan ikut kepala sendiri.

    I perhati some of his statement melalui press, video, walau penyokong tegar sokong 100% sebagai bagus, I dapati statement2 yang keluar dari mulutnya very damaging not only to him but also to Parti Bersatu in the long run.

    As for the Education Minister, I prefer Tun lah, sebab Education Minister sekarang personality macam budak2. Maybe his body size or maybe cara he carries himself. Something about him remind me of a friend, a schoolmate yang kita ada semasa zaman belajar.

    That’s all for now.

    Have a productive day!

    If you look back at the history of usa, we shall understand how the lawmakers’ pattern behave under different different usa president, and thats how matured democracy pattern is disipline.

    Before the atomic bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki, refer president Harry S. Truman, usa army had landed fire bomb on to tokyo that burned 200k lives and homes of the city in hoping to end the world war 2 quickly, and at the same time to test their atomic bombing capacility during that time.

    The rest is history.

    Yup, no military war please.

    On the case of paid cbertroopers and jihadists in creating perfect storm to favour themselves in media and internet, itu terpulang kepada citarasa tuan bn atau tuan pakatan harapan.

    By the end of the day, it would be the voters to decide which coalition depending the quality of their mps, and members.

    It is still come back to chicken and egg issues.

  44. sibotak Oct 18,2018 7:45 AM

    Agreed with TMJ comment
    Than building The Crooked Bridge
    It’s wiser to build a Hospital
    BUT why should’nt TMJ ensure the building of The Hospital before The building of The Forest City ?

    I find the comment is never to a National priority
    Malaysia should know what to come first
    The Govt must Stern to play their role

    Malaysia Govt should centered more of its qualified , experience player from parts of Malaysia to Johor if its intend to build Johor as to meet up with Singapore.Building more infrastructure ,an international Airport ,upgrade the Port facilities and expertise
    More work more action than simply getting foreigners like China to build Malaysia , sit at home doing nothing expecting something in returns .Johorean must learn to earn their living than consenting foreign to benefits

    Refer to the book of dilenma melayu, then, we would know whats in the mind of tdm in the past, and for the future.

    Refer to the book of doctor in the house, then, we would know whats in the mind of tdm in the past, and for the future.

    Whether his worshippers, friends, supporters, fans and enemies like it or not, the legacy of tdm would be a legacy of the past too.

    Henceforth, there wont be a repeat of victor re-write history.

    When those who have the thoughts of there is no permanent enemies but permanent interests, then, indeed they too have the mind of criminals in abusing the power to favor themselves, their children, their family members, party members and cronies of whom they trusted in the future too.

    As saying goes, wealth does pass through 3 generations.

    When a person said hang tuah will not win, then, this person must be hang jebat.

    Whether both of the divides like it of not, malaysians especially the chinese, are not stupid like their parents, grandfathers and great great grandfathers.

    When state sultan also not worry, who are we the citizens who have the basic right to vote are treated as pendatang?

    If we loose hope in this country, naturally and biologically we will loose hope in all states under this country, dont you think so?

    Unite there will be malaysian federation under the country name malaysia.

    Disunite there will be malaya, borneo and north borneo sharing myr and bursa malaysia.

    When you have tried your best, and still loose, treat is as the blessings, dont over stay.

    When bad things happened, there must be a reason.

    Henceforth, robbing paul to pay peter, all vice versa, it makes no sense who can jual better since we have general election in every 5 years.

  47. milshah Oct 17,2018 10:13 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    I would like to comment regarding the “crooked bridge” issue.

    According to the MB of Johor, you wanted the crooked bridge to be built. But what confuses me, is that, according to the news, you asked whether Johor still needed the crooked bridge. Ordering to have the crooked bridge to be built and asking if Johor still needed the crooked bridge are two totally different things.

    When Tun asked whether Johor still needed the crooked bridge, the MB stated its up to you. Orang tanya lain, dia jawab lain. Tidak menjawab soalan. This is coming from MB of Johor. What he should have replied is,if yes, state the reasons, if no, state the reasons. Not answer its up to you. When you answer, you must have the Johor well being in mind, not blindly follow orders.

    And behold, TMJ has voiced rather than building the crooked bridge, its better to build hospital. And the former MB of Johor also commented, its shocking, that crooked bridge is being mulled at a time of austerity. The MB’s comment have provided ammunition to Tun’s critics.

    And what’s more confusing, Azmin Ali and Lim Guan Eng have stated the crooked bridge came from the MB and not Tun.

    My comments are derived from the information I read from the news. I don’t know who is correct. But one thing is for sure, as I have stated before, Tun being the Prime Minister is akin to the warrior Hang Tuah being made the Laksamana. You will not win.

  48. faridina Oct 17,2018 8:37 PM

    Entahlah dalam politik macam2 boleh jadi..

    Semalam tanpa disedari tertonton temuramah Anwar dengan BBC dan ada satu soalan yang membuatkan Anwar kelihatan terkelu lidah dan tergamam.

    “Adakah ada di mana2 tertulis yang menyatakan anda akan dinobatkan sebagai Perdana Menteri ke 8 dalam tempoh 2 tahun ini?”

    “Err..emm.. Ya ada kot.. well bla.bla.bla..”

    Takkan ia ada tercatat dalam manifesto?

    Semua ini adalah persefahaman politik dan rasanya tiada hitam putih maka tiadalah istilah PM sedang menanti.

    Whether both of the divides like it or not, highways model of usa would a thing of past too.

    Oil price would be very expensive.

    Therefore, for the next 20 to 50 years, clean energy would be the thing of the future.

    In order to set up 3rd nasional car, first you must have huge market which you can export out.

    The serious mistake that proton did was bn monopolized local market to sell its car through assembly, and assembly line is very expensive that needs high technology and engineering.

    Race quota system is the thing of the past too in malaysia.

    Race quota is caste system, and no matter how we argue, it is a political fact that no one can deny.

    Sue here and there is meaningless if mps themselves are afraid of their shadow.

    Yup, justice must be served in the name of malaysia to make this country a well respected country again in the name of pakatan harapan tanpa unsul perkauman mahupun agama masing2.

    Good morning Tun

    Isu datukship ini ramai memperkatakan.

    Seingat I, nak dapat dato/datuk ini kena melalui proses. Sama macam nak minta royal pardon. Tak tau la kalau ada tangan2 ghaib yang menentukan 😀

    Nak dapat dato/datukship state level kena apply dulu melalui Istana atau MB office. Dua tempat ini ada list yang berbeza. Ada quota masing2. Soalnya sekarang siapa yang rekomen nama2 Menteri baru untuk dapat anugerah ini?

    Dato/Datuk ini should be used sparingly in anugerah. Dato/Datuk ini dah banyak, kalau baling batu terkena kepala dato/datuk. Anyway title begini pun banyak yang perangai teruk. Pernah seorang kawan kata ramai Dato/Datuk yang tinggal kat Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam berlagak lebih, hutang lampu 30K tak larat bayar. We are talking about one area, bayangkan area lain.

    What more kalau orang berniaga biasa sangat kawan2 business bila jumpa, dok panggil datuk, tan sri walaupun sipolan tu bukan ada miliki anugerah tersebut. Anugerah2 ini not as special like those days where nak dapat anugerah datuk dan tan sri pun hanya segelintir cuma.

    I sendiri biasa orang tak kenal pun panggil Datin. I pernah kata, heh apa pasal you panggil I Datin, I belum kawin dengan Datuk lagi!

    Antara jawapan I dapat, macam Datin. Hubby pula dapat jawapan alah orang dah tua semua pun akan jadi Datuk.

    I pernah duduk semeja dengan bekas MB Perak. Kat meja tu not only Puan Sri but also Datin ada. One Datin tanya I ini, Datin? I jawab No. Puan Sri? I jawab No. Puan? I jawab Yes.

    I think sepatutnya ada undang2 yang tertera bahawasanya Menteri2 baru yang tidak bergelar tidak boleh dicadangkan menerima sebarang anugerah. After all its about performance kan.

    Jangan pula hari ini dapat esok kena tarik. Perangai diva2 ini tidak sesuai dalam Malaysia Baru yang saban hari di war warkan banyak hutang dan sukar nak selesaikan hutang.

    That’s all I can say.

    Take care Tun!

  56. Hajar Oct 17,2018 8:06 AM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Izinkan saya Tun untuk ulas isu politik semasa:

    1. Tun, bukankah saya sudah bilang baru2 ini ada ahli-ahli Bersatu (PPBM) yang berperangai buruk seperti segelintir ahli-ahli UMNO (tidak semua) yang suka memfitnah orang dengan tuduhan2 melulu, tidak sedar diri, serta mudah lupa?

    2. Sekarang ada pula yang sudah mula kemaruk pingat kebesaran yang membawa gelaran. Sudah nampak belang walaupun baru saja jadi Kerajaan.

    3. Apa yang hendak dihairankan dengan gelaran2 yang tidak membawa apa2 makna kalau berada di luar negara. Di luar negara, orang masih lagi panggil Mr. / En. / Bapak/ etc. Jadi, lantak merekalah untuk syok sendiri. Ini pun dalam golongan tidak sedar diri.

    4. Tun lain, sebab Tun ada ‘Dr.’ di depan nama Tun (kita serupa … 🙂 🙂 🙂 ). Kalau di luar negara gelaran ‘Dr.’ masih laku. Tak gitu Tun?

    5. Memang kelakar bila ada orang jahil yang asyik tanya saya, “Awak tu siapa?”. Takkanlah dia masih tidak kenal siapa saya di blog Chedet …Alahai…soalan bodoh betul. Tapi kena hati2 lah bila mengutuk. Seperti kebanyakan pengkomen di sini, ada kemungkinan saya juga guna nama samaran (pseudonym / nickname). Saya agak dikenali juga. Jadi, saya pun perlu berhati-hati bila menulis di sini. 🙂

    6. DAP ada YB (Yang Berlagak) Samseng yang bernama Norhizam Hassan Bakkee dari Melaka. Terkejut saya melihat dia menengking sekumpulan orang kampong (dalam video). Yang lagi tidak patut, dia boleh tengking, “Awak YB ke, saya YB?”. Astaghfullah…Angkuh dan samseng betul! Bodoh sombong pula sebab ada hati mahu menghina orang lain sedangkan dia pun bersekolah setakat SPM saja. Alahai…Memang saya selalu jumpa orang sebegini.

    7. PKR pun parti yang bermasalah. Dalam pemilihan parti pun boleh bergaduh sakan macam samseng! Macam orang tidak bertamadun. Politik wang? Biasalah…Tidak menghairankan sebab pemimpin tertinggi mereka pun semacam saja perangainya Saya hairan betul bagaimana Anwar Ibrahim boleh ada penyokong2 setia. Tentang TPM Wan Azizah yang ‘cop’ tempat untuk suami dia, orang ini bila berucap asyik baca saja (skrip yang ditulis), dan saya pun tidak tahu apa kelebihan beliau. Membaca pun mendatar saja suaranya (tiada intonasi).

    8. Mengenai perjanjian Tun dengan pemimpin2 PKR dan lain2 parti dalam PH, itu antara Tun dengan mereka. Saya tidak berjanji apa2 dengan sesiapa pun. Jika saya tidak setuju dengan sesuatu perkara yang memang SALAH, saya kritik saja. Saya bebas untuk mengkritik kerana negara kita mengamalkan sistem demokrasi. Tak gitu Tun?

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

    E-grab is more feasible than feeder bus, and this is the economical truth that ngo cannot deny.

    Yup, under the previous government, few major tolled highway already built to minimize traffic jam to kl city centre, and this public money belong to epf, bukan tabung haji, kwap mahupun parti umno punya tunai atau party biru taxi.

    In fact, umno could be de- registered immediately when so much unknown, undeclared wang and luxurious products of all kinds found in the house linked to ex-president umno and his wife, but i guess tdm does not want to go to this extreme measure so that umno can survive eventhough mereka ini didapati bersuhabat dengan president mereka.

    Whether dsn and his wife like it or not, they cannot deny, or escape the punishment of power abuse in the eyes of the public today whereby all info could be shared with touch on screen via social media.

    The opportunity and chance already given to him and his wife, and hakikatnya, they loose the general election due to absolute greed whereby they thought money can buy power out of the taxpayers and epf contributors.

    It is either he and his wife serve jail in cleaning the good name of umno so that the public can see and feel, or the vp of umno announce umno to be de- registered and parked under parti pribumi bersatu once and for all.

    Jihat ke, jilat ke, commies ke, zombies ke, gandhi ke, marxists ke itu tak mustahak.


    By the end of the day, voters of all negeri except sarawak would determine which coalitions gets the majority votes to name the cabinet and prime minister.

    Yup, when personal interests are involved, then, obviously, it would be very very difficult for them to choose between madu and racun via malay and muslim supremacy.

    The answer already written in the wall by the prophets, so it is up to the political divides to choose their appetitite that can last them for many general election to come.

    Good luck, and all the best.

  58. HBT456 Oct 17,2018 5:16 AM

    Luah mati bapak, telan mati ibu, housewife?

    The thing is, whether we are in the government, political parties, international companies, glc, mnc, sdn bhd or enterprise, we must behave and play by the rule of law to jaga nama baik negara, party politik, company, kawan dan keluarga.

    I know what tdm and his friends had gone through, and i felt the fear in them when they were targeted as duri dalam daging by umno supreme leaders.

    Yup, tdm had already admitted that he is not that noble, and he cannot afford to loose, and i fully take note on that, and i fully understand the political situation of him and his friends are in.

    Is the official religion, islam, an absolute religion whereby voters must be converted into islam to enjoy hak istimewa?

    Is state religion an absolute or a constitutional monarchy?

    If housewife can differentiate this , then your job is much much more easier.

    I am just a voter, and i am not a party member hoping to hop for bailout based on cronism, nepostism, donation, so and so….

    Today, majority of the voters are more educated, more open minded, more demanding and they know where they stand, and they will cast votes accordingly when general election is called, and this is the mindshift of human behaviour that is inescapable whether we like it or not in any countries.

    Only malay and muslim can decide who gets what, who dont gets what?

    Only political party can decide who gets what, who dont get what?

    Rule of game for numbers is always winner takes all, looser takes all, and everyone is aware the risk but why they still do it?

    Yup, there is no right or wrong in any political situations.

    Can the government afford to prolong such political situation by exploiting the future taxpayers due to my way, not your way again?

    Yup, the ruling government of the day can cancel all contracts signed by previous corrupted ruling party but on what ground?

    Pendek kata, there is no point crying over spilled milk.

    Do your best and make the future better regardless of what slogan, colors or dream you have in the next 5 years, and result would be known when next ge is called.

    The rest is history.

    Victor re- write history?

    Itu terpulang kepada citarasa negeri masing2.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Tun is happy with the big win in PD Move, well at this age Tun you must always be happy no matter what. I can only be happy for you. Am I happy with this win…who cares what a nobody feels. Most importantly, Tun is fine, healthy and happy.

    Wow…who could ever imagine that Malaysia would have not one but two PMs in this new era. Oo..never mind that he is the PM-in-waiting, he’s so thrilled that he acts and talks like a PM. DSAI sure does know when to grab the opportunity of the comfortable advantage Tun has struggled to set up for his personal gain. You took a gamble on him and cannot backtrack on your words. It’s mandatory that he gets what he wants. He’ll start structuring and organizing steps to the top with help from his loyalists and closest aides, the soonest the better. But they better watch out and don’t be rude to Tun and accuse Tun of sabotaging his ambition. There are these guys around him who are notorious for their make-believe warfare and tales against Tun. Tun, couldn’t this country has a referendum to choose whether DSAI should be the PM or not? Maybe Tun should also start polishing for the next 9th PM now…we never know the future.

    Is DSN out of money to pay for his legal fees? He’s appealing for donations from the people…tak malu sungguh. He shouldn’t have returned part of the pak arab’s “donation”. It’s so uncalled for of him to ask people to help fill up his tabung. There are so many unfortunate families, the poor and the sick who need money for their medical and social welfare and support to live another day. They are the breadwinners who are paralyzed and live on handouts but not enough. The children had to forgo their studies to take care of their poor sick parents. But then who are these people to really get the attention. DSN is fit but more in need so please fill up his banks. He needs millions and millions, people. This kaya man needs our kesian more. Another thing, will DSN do the honour to duduk diam jangan kacau daun orang nak buat kerja, just go begging for your tabung.

    “Those fortunate to achieve great wealth should put it to work for the good of humanity”…by the late Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder.

    Black or white? To the many the colour of socks and shoes is so trivial and stupid, but to a mother of six children who has gone through the scrubbing, the soaping and the kiwi-ing these white stupid little things you called nothings it was tiring to make them sparkling white but nevertheless these little white nothings do get their motherly touch and care just so as to make sure the children were happy and not shy to wear these little white nothings ( walaupun ada yang dah ternanga macam mulut buaya dan terkoyak sikit sana sini, selagi boleh pakai pakailah). I’m sure mothers and future mothers will be glad to get black shoes and socks for their children, work will be less tiring.

    Hooray, now everyone in the new opposition is singing praises for the new PD MP. They seem to be more comfortable with DSAI than with Tun. Why is that? These people are opportunists.

    Well Tun, let’s hope for this first term PH government would have a glorious and blazing success. More actions and less talk please. Thank you so much Tun and May Allah bless you always. May Allah grant you great wealth in health so you may lead us for many more years to come.

    Good evening Tun

    I actually love alternative views.

    Penyokong tegar, I dah tau apa mereka nak kata. So at my old site, I simpan a list of sites on alternative views. Not because of anything, I takut I lupa the links hahaha

    I guess because of my old work, I kena baca yang negative in order for me to correct it. What more I get to feel samada the writers same wavelength with me.

    Anyway, it doesn’t matter to me, what kind of penjanjian between Tun dan Anwar. If I’m not happy with the current government, next election I vote yang lain. At the moment, I’m happy just to be atas pagar, not attached to anyone.

    Goodnight Tun.

    I still love you, so please take care. Hugs Tun Siti.

  63. musato Oct 16,2018 5:26 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Bilamana orang tanyakan pendapat saya berkenaan Anwar, sebenarnya pandangan boleh diberikan dari 2 sudut.

    1. Sudut Politik.

    Tun Mahathir sudah berjanji Anwar akan jadi pengganti beliau selepas Tun letak jawatan.

    Janji ini terhasil kerana wujudnya PH, hasil gabungan parti parti pembangkang.

    Ia digabungkan bagi menumbangkan kerajaan BN yang telah korup.

    BERSATU yang telah ditubuhkan bagi menghadapi pilihanraya telah diusahakan untuk bubar oleh ROS. Mujurlah BERSATU tidak diharamkan terus dan perjanjian penggabungan antara parti masih boleh diadakan.

    Memandangkan parti BERSATU adalah parti yang baru merangkak, jadi kesempatan ini telah diambil oleh PKR untuk meminta sesuatu.

    Yang diminta adalah pengampunan diraja sekiranya menang. Seterusnya Anwar akan menjadi PM.

    Sebagai timbal balas, BERSATU akan dijanjikan Tun Mahathir sebagai PM PH yang pertama.

    Seperti Wan Azizah yang berulangkali kata, YDP Agong telah menawarkan Wan Azizah sebagai PM Malaysia. Ini kerana pada PRU 14 PH telah menang dengan menggunakan logo PKR. Namun Wan Azizah telah menolak disebabkan perjanjian di antara parti telah diadakan.

    Jadi sekarang adalah masa Tun Mahathir untuk menunaikan janji. Apabila kita berjanji, perlulah kita tunaikan.

    Lembu diikat pada tali. Manusia diikat pada janjinya.

    2. Sudut rakyat.

    Rakyat khususnya orang Melayu, memilih PH kerana Tun Mahathir akan menjadi PM. Ia adalah seperti yang disebarkan dalam setiap ceramah PH.

    Namun nama Anwar tidak ada tempat di hati orang Melayu. Anwar bertanding pun di PD, yang dikatakan bukan kawasan majoriti orang Melayu.

    Berkemungkinan PRU 15 adalah satu cabaran besar bagi Anwar sekiranya beliau menjadi PM selepas Tun Mahathir.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  64. HBT456 Oct 16,2018 2:19 PM

    Yup, the end must justify the means.

    No worries, we have many general elections to be called in many years to come.

    Therefore, it is up to the political parties of the divides to rebut2 to become the kingmaker.

    I am not angry nor frustrated at all as voter.

    My obligation is to vote, itu saja.

    Quote of the day: weak people revenge, strong people forgive, intelligent people ignore.

    Madu atau racun, itu terpulang kepada kematangan parti2 tempatan khususnya orang melayu dan muslim.

    Suka atau tidak, i still have to work, live and enjoy life, happily, healthily, less stress and less negative influences as voter.

  65. HBT456 Oct 16,2018 1:57 PM

    As non muslim, we must be grateful for the ruling government to increase cigarrete price and increase alchohol age limit to 21 years old because smoking and achoholism kills and ruined families.

  66. HBT456 Oct 16,2018 1:42 PM

    Shisa smoking also kills, just like teh tarik and since it is under this topic, so it is non of my business to say no to this governmrent as non muslim.

    So it is up to the political parties and voters of all states to decide when general election is called.

    P/s: soda taxing is a dangerous move, but for those mps who are okay with it, by all means go a head since this is a free country.

  67. HouseWife Oct 16,2018 1:38 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Tun, it’s never easy to change the mindset of the people but this time around you have in a way succeeded. Once the people thought umnoBn was their only saviour but they changed their mind because you opened up their mind and see reasons for change. Tun, not all can do as you do…you are like a magician, your words and actions are like magnate that pull and spellbound people of all walks of life. Not many have this power… not the sultans, the rajas. Malaysia will produce many heroes and gentlemen but never one like you Tun. You are different, Tun. There’ll never gonna be one like you.

    This is the time the muslim world learn from Tun and not from the western world especially the US. The muslim world says the western world brings trouble to their world. But then the western world says the muslim world creats her own troubles and terroize them. Who started first? What happened? How and why eveything went wrong? Did the muslim world lost their way? Was the muslim world got blinded and manipulated by their own greed for power and wealth? Why is it so difficult for the rich muslim countries to give their helping hand to the poor and oppressed muslim countries, their own neighbours? What hindered them? Why fight and killed fellow muslims with weapons bought with Allah’s natural treasure, the black gold? Why muslims want to crippled each other? How easily we forget with the whats, whys and hows.

    Well Tun, small country in far away land with trillion debts can only talk and talk whilst the big, rich, strong and powerful countries buat pekak telinga. Tun, you have laid down and extend your noble messages to the muslim world leaders and it’s their call to listen and change to deliver, achieve and give the peace, harmony, justice and equal rights their own people deserve. Tun, you have done your job well and should be proud of yourself. Thank you Tun and May Allah bless you always.

  68. HBT456 Oct 16,2018 10:31 AM

    Rafizi should worry more on money politics linked to malay and islam political parties that could cause him and pkr to loose votes.

    Pendek kata, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Therefore, general election must be called in every 5 years.

    Therefore, eventhough we worked so hard and build this country through tears and sweats, we will always be the duri dalam daging of ketuanan muslim mahupun ketuana melayu.

    Tak nak tak pa, tapi jangan hina.

    Bak kata, meludah ke langit, akhirnya jatuh di atas muka sendiri.

    Sepandai tupai melompat, akhirnya, terjatuh di tanah, atau laut.

    Honesty is a very expensive gift, dont expect it from cheap people.

    Foreign meddling?

    Tribalism politics?

    Good morning Tun

    Morning yang sangat cerah. Tapi selalunya panas tak sampai ke petang. Anyway I always hope Tun berdua sihat.


    Actually like that lor, if jadi Menteri must jadi Dato also, tak kira la 1 week kerja ka, 1 month kerja ka, 1 year kerja ka, Datukship is a must. Same thing also, like if you can’t fight the battle, your dad can wat!

    I also got this idea, morning2 sudah dapat, I share with you la, LGE.

    Since this is Malaysia Baru, I think your wife, Tun’ wife, Tan Sri’s wife, Mat’ Sabu’s wife, must also bertanding jadi MP. Romantic you know. Go in Parliment couple couple. Some more Valentine’s Day also can celebrate inside Parliment. So so romantic, roses everywhere. You all can also do like Najib’s daughter wedding, roses alone millions ringgit. Don’t worry you all can always use government place, money and time, after all party time meh.

    LGE, I also think that Anwar suitable for that Kementerian Wanita Minister. Because he got a lot of ideas, one of it, if perempuan pakai handbag, he ingat Rosmah. Can you imagine what other ideas he can give to women. His wife also cannot think. But Anwar boleh!

    P/s: Kini, pas got another choice to main belakang, that is pkr.

  71. HBT456 Oct 16,2018 6:44 AM

    The natural and biological regime change had begun in pd, and whether pas president dok haji awang likes it or not, he would be challenged by pas members for loosing seats and votes from the n9 races before next general election starts.

    Everyone knows umno can never stand alone even if you bring out the late ghafar baba in melaka.

    When umno can never stand alone, obviously bersatu also cannot stand alone.

    Pas hanya ikut rentak dan angin saja, and they always main belakang dengan umno dan pas assuming other political parties tak nampak, atau pengundi tak nampak.

    It is tempting to demolish the current building of mca in petaling street to raise political funding, but it would be better off not to do that if mca really wants to maintain and retain its roots of malaysian chinese for many generations to come.

    In terms of number, chinese already loose out, therefore, votes go to mca bn, or dap gerakan ph, it makes no different.

    Chinese language education to majority of the chinese parents is a must, therefore, there is no way both political of the divides can demoslish chinese vernacular schools through federal or state budget and land rejection.

    If you dont allow the chinese political parties to do that, then, they will get donation from the private companies to continue the chinese vernacular schools in which ruling and opposing government cannot reject, atau deny.


    Lau pan ini adalah pengundi, mereka bukan kakitangan kerajaan wilayah mahupun negeri.

    Yup, pandai2 lah wahai umno, pas dan pkr.

    Assamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,


    YB —> Yang Berhormat—–> X X X
    YB —> Yang Berkhidmat—> ✓✓✓

    Saya sudah bilang Ayahanda Tun mesti tukar akronim YB kalau Pakatan Harapan benar2 ikhlas mahu berkhidmat untuk rakyat dan langkah yang kecil ini akan jauh membedakan PH dari BN.

    Inilah masalahnya apabila diberikan penghormatan kepada wakil rakyat dengan gelaran yang berhormat maka yang dikejar adalah penghormatan demi penghormatan kununnya telah dilantik menjadi menteri atau timbalan menteri mesti ada gelaran Datuk Seri macam Ayahanda Tun dahulu dan Najib kini.

    Datuk sahaja tidak glamour kerana itu untuk ahli perniagaan sebab DS sinonim dengan ahli politik yang bertaraf menteri.

    Malulah sikit pada rakyat awak tu baru sahaja bergelar menteri dan dah kelihatan gelojoh mahu lagi pangkat dan gelaran sedangkan kerja bakti pada rakyat belum lagi membuahkan hasil?

    Hendak sangat gelaran tunggulah bila dah pencen dan dah cukup berkhidmat dan berbakti pada rakyat.

    Contohilah En Ghaffar Baba dah pencen barulah Allahyarham terima gelaran Tun dan terbaharu contohilah Najib yang satu2nya bekas PM yang tidak mengharapkan gelaran Tun 🙂 .

    Sekian dari Yang Berkarya.

    p/s : Saya tabik pada LGE yang berani tegur ahlinya ambil gelaran sedangkan KM Melaka sendiri tidak ambil katanya dan saya juga hairan kenapa Mat Sabu tidak beri amaran pada Menterinya jangan ikut perangai PAS yang kununnya Islamik tapi kalau beri gelaran dunia dia tibai juga.

    Statistik Terkini Menteri/Timb Men PH
    Baru Sahaja Bergelar Datuk Seri;

    BERSATU —> 3
    PAN ——-> 2
    PKR ——-> 1
    DAP —— > 0

    I personally think beijing is trying to protect them from being exploited in loosing their roots, and got hurt and would create a lot of problems to their community and race if they are being used by jihad terrorists to bomb, cheat, kidnap, kill and rape in the name of islam.

    Kaum uighur ini orang susah dan miskin due to geographical challenges, and only beijing and russia can protect them in the north.

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Today, 15 Oct 2018, we have husband-wife-daughter as MPs of our Parliament. Bravo PH Government! You have set such a good example for all future politicians to follow.


    Nazri Aziz should have said something like, “Allah’s will that Tun Mahathir leads Malaysia again…”. 🙂

    He was DSN’s biggest bu** kisser! And now he is trying to get Anwar’s attention. Both are losers.

    3. Ministers can campaign for Anwar, but only outside working hours says EC

    /// EC chairman Azhar Azizan Harun (pic), “The EC acknowledges that some Cabinet members and politicians who hold posts in the government, except for civil servants, have the right to campaign for a candidate as it is a party activity.

    “However, the EC would like to stress that if they campaign, they should never ever use government assets or facilities for such purposes.

    “In fact, the campaigning activities must be done outside their work hours, as it is a misuse of their working hours.” ///

    Very CLEAR instructions from the EC.

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

  76. Idea Oct 14,2018 8:55 PM

    Dear Tun,

    May you always be in good health.

    Greed of the Banks

    1. Time is precious. Time and tide wait for no man. A minute passed is a minute gone.

    2. Money, on the contrary, is nothing more than a piece of printed paper or embossed metal. It acts as a medium of exchange. In the absence of exchangeable products, money is worthless. In fact, when people decide to do barter trade, money is not even needed.

    3. To make money precious, the element of time is introduced. With time, a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow. Every tick of the clock counts. If one were to borrow a dollar today, he has to pay back more than a dollar in future. The longer the borrowing period, the more he has to pay. This is time value of money.

    4. Every loan consists of principal and interest. Principal is the base amount and interest is the additional amount, which is derived based on the borrowing period. Interest is what the banks gain out of lending money.

    5. Perhaps, the most beneficial party of a functioning economy is the banks.

    6. People borrow to purchase houses and cars. As long as there are borrowers, the banks make money – because people pay more than what they borrow. The non-performing loans for many countries sit below 20%. For Malaysia, the non-performing loans was only 1.61% in 2016. So, the banks still make money despite some loan defaults.

    7. But the banks crave for more. They subtly defy time value of money for their advantage.

    8. By right, interest should be collected in relation to time – just like how it is derived. Less interest should be collected in the early part of repayment period. More interest should be collected later.

    9. However, the banks collect interest much sooner than they should. Repayments are designed to settle the interest first. Typically by half term, the banks gain almost all the interest amount – leaving the borrower with the principal amount. Principal amount cannot be discounted even if the borrower decides to pay lump sum amount.

    10. In fairness, if a loan is fully settled at half term, the interest amount should be revised based on the new shorter term. Refund should be given over the excess interest charged earlier.

    11. But this does not happen. This is the greed of those who use money to make money.

    12. They may assert that it has been the practice all the while. But this does not mean we cannot right the wrong.

    Yup, it is up to the buffologists to decide the fate of 1mdb and petronas dengan projected derma from all of us since taxation and kiraan bunga atau interest is kafir to the muslim, and can cause the ruling party to loose votes.

    So, who transferred the usd 700 million to ambank account of dsn?

    Where did the money come from?

    Who ordered to c4 monggolian transtalotor, ms altantunya?

    I believe the insiders have the answer but they are afraid that the answer would be spinned and twisted and became a perfect storm to loose votes with the same question of kenapa beliau boleh buat, kenapa aku tak boleh buat?

    Keranamu, Malay sia, atau Malaysia, it is up to the political of the divides to decide their next course of action to clear the goodwill and good name of the official religion and country.

    The day before yesterday, our pm exchanged oil with transfer of technolgy via look east policy and barter trade.

    Yesterday, our 2 pm exchanged oil with buffoloes in head count via jewel of middle east.

    Yup, it is really cruel to aks a man of 90 plus to decide the fate of the country so that they can continue to lie, cheat, conquer, rape, kill and bomb in the name of official religion and bangsa.

    ” Hold Fast The Rope of Allah , Be Not Be Divided among Ummah ”
    This is The Surah , This is Quran
    This is where and why the Muslims goes wrong today

    Muslim World must work toward this
    It starts with our family , friends , neighbors , community
    and nation as a whole .
    It begins with the Islamic Leaders

    Stops Blaming Stops Regretting
    Starts Working On It as One Ummah

    I,m just OK with Anwar yr choice as for the other alternative is
    Rafizi , Mukhliz or probably lets take the plunge
    The capable Syed Sadiq , the fear he is too young

    Anwar speaks a lot , which I don’t fancy a leader , much more as a near PM
    He speaks a lot recently in Singapore Forum
    Highlighting his Intelligence yet Revealing his Stupidity
    I have seen many of our Malaysian Leader having interviewed in Singapore including yr daughter Marina
    But I have not seen any of Singapore Minister being interview 1 on 1
    or in any Malaysia Forum in Malaysia

    I guess Malaysia Minister , Malaysia Politics like to Talk
    Did not deliver
    Singapore Minister Talk less , Work more and Delivers
    This to my very opinion in our flaws

    Unlike you Tun
    You are capable and able to handle
    Even to my opinion you are far way better than late LKY in Live interviews
    LKY needs to prepare, you can do it tactfully

    I hope to see TV3 , or any Media of Malaysia interview Singapore Importance in Live in Malaysia
    Lets Hear their story also

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Toll-free roads not possible, says Dr M

    BALI: Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad says it is not possible to have highways without imposing toll collection as well.

    He also revealed that he had been against the pledge for toll-free highways in the Pakatan Harapan (PH) manifesto.


    Of course it is not possible.

    But who are the idiots (sorry for being harsh) who included such a stupid promise in the the PH’s PRU14 manifesto? Or who are the opportunists (making empty/false promises)?

    Actually there are a lot of stupid promises that PH (and previous Opposition) has made in the past that are meant for those who can’t think properly.

    We have to be rational. If the promises cannot be fulfilled, or if fulfilled, some serious problems can arise, then these promises must not be included in any PRU’s manifesto for any political party / coalition (both Government and Opposition).

    But why did PH include all of the STUPID promises, which cannot be delivered? Of course to GET @ BUY VOTES! (‘sogokan @ rasuah’). Alahai…2 x 5, 5 x 2 with the previous regime.


    There’s no need to renegotiate. Why do we have to worry about the losses of 20,000 people (they are getting a lot from this project!) when the burden of paying for this overpriced project is on all Malaysians?

    The same goes for the HSR and ECRL. Just cancel them; full stop. I am not sure why they are just deferred (temporary termination of work), and not cancelled (HSR and ECRL). We are paying way too high for these overpriced projects (not a necessity). Not feasible at all, and more importantly we don’t need them!

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

    In terms of full set accounts, whether she likes it or not, chinese race is still ahead of other races due to amanah, cekap dan bersih, and it is still in demand for many generations to come for pa ma businesses.

    Kaum india yang mahir in jual surat khabar, lottery, kacang putih, roti, lorry businesses, gerai mamak, scrap collectors, atau susu kamping, etc… to cari rezeki untuk keluarga, itu terpulang kepada penilaian tradisi kekeluargaan mereka.

    As for other higher skill and profession, it is up to the locals to decide to work for government, international companies, glc, mnc, sdn bhd or self employed and it is beyond the control of political parties mahupun kerajaan at federal and state levels.

    Habuk tak ada?

    Look at our air quality index via red sun in the evening, it signalled the air quality is filled with habuk due to so much ongoing construction works.

    How could the ruling government of the day can suddenly stop and delay all these ongoing works just because they takut kalah in next general election?

    I already said, it is much more safer and better off for mr trump to launched any wars against china.


    Because he knows china will not retaliate with military war just like what the middle east countries did to their soldiers.

  91. HBT456 Oct 13,2018 1:58 PM

    Yup, semua adalah salah kaum bukan melayu dan muslim.

    In terms of numbers, we already loose out, therefore, dont waste time in changing the mindset of the majority races.

    The only way to change them is the peer pressure among themselves.

    Perut buncit saiful at such young age signal dia makan haram, atau dalam stres yang amat tertekan until he give up his future?

    Therefore, whoever become the next perdana menteri, it makes no sense who can jual better.

    Can do, we do.

    Cannot do, then, we leave.

    P/s: the political power struggling had already narrowed down within the malay and bumiputra muslim, henceforth, we have to wait it out until they sort out the power among themselves on who get the biggest bite of the kek pulut.

    Good morning Tun

    I sambung sikit bicara semalam.

    Kalau Tun nak kata orang Melayu histeria, silap tu. Pusat pengajian dan asrama under MARA penghuni adalah orang Melayu. Sekarang I dengar kaum lain pun dapat masuk. Sikit lagi mereka pun histeria.

    Cuba kita lihat berita orang yang sesat dalam hutan belantara Borneo, tak kira bangsa, asal masuk, lemah semangat sure kena. Nampak princess la. Macam2 pun boleh nampak.

    Mentaliti nak kata hanya Cina sahaja pandai akaun, dah tak ada lagi. Nak kata orang India hanya pandai jual suratkhabar, dah dah tak ada lagi.

    Sekarang orang Melayu dah ramai pandai. I think orang Melayu hanya perlu a lot of motivation and proper guidance, pasti mereka nanti akan jadi bangsa terbagus dan tercanggih bukan saja diMalaysia tapi di dunia juga.

    Key to learning, not to be overly sensitive to criticism, ya!

  93. HBT456 Oct 13,2018 9:22 AM

    Yup, there is no right or wrong.

    But, can ph afford loose malay and muslim votes to keep their majority race happy?

    Why so much noises being made out there, and for who to hear?

    Victor re-write history?

    Giving out cash, cabutan bertuah, door gifts or free dinner do not guarantee votes macam zaman nenek moyang kita, but such freebies and donations could lead to loss of votes due to more educated, more demanding, more mature voters out there who can judge themselves the manifesto.

  94. HBT456 Oct 13,2018 8:56 AM

    Macam ini, in south china sea, the rule of super power game is, as usual, to exploit the situation via freedom of expression and basic human rights to push for regime change.

    Yup, it is dangerous and could lead to military wars in there when the leaders of south china sea behave hostile and act like a bully, and could make usa and its allies to launch a military strikes.

    Today, we do not need to be hostile or a bully to show our intolerance to a particular group of people, race, religion or nationality since we are living in post it era whereby all info, video, pictures, speeches and behaviors could be shared within touch of finger.

    When the hostility and bullism are made toward, contohnya, to a nationality to express his supremacy, i mean, bullsim, naturally and biologically, he as the representative of his race had disqualified themselves in padang finale even when damage control is made with greed or fear.

    The muhhibah sense of belonging is still there, but today, this sense of belonging has eveolved so rapidly, and it is no longer only about ahmad, ah chong and muthu races only.

    Yup, ds anwar ibrahim can contest anywhere he likes as long as his political party allowed him to do that via agree to disagree, agree, disagree or whatever political reasons behind there, and it is up to that voters of that constituency to decide in the ballot boxes.

    Is ph manifesto a burden, or responsibilty?

  95. milshah Oct 13,2018 1:07 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    One of the biggest problems the Pakatan Harapan government is facing is fulfilling its election manifesto. I think the root cause of this problem is not the manifesto itself, but the approach towards the manifesto.

    One approach would be to treat the manifesto as “must do”. The opposite of this approach is to abandon the manifesto completely. Another approach would be the middle path i.e making the manifesto as a guide but customised according to the real situation.

    During the first few months of the PH government, the manifesto was treated as something sacred and “must do”. I was very sad when you had to let go of the education portfolio because the manifesto disallow the Prime Minister from holding two posts. I can understand if the Prime Minister is not allowed to hold the Finance portfolio or the Home Ministry portfolio but the education portfolio as well? What harm can the Prime Minister do holding the education portfolio as well?

    Wouldn’t it has benefited the country’s education system if was supervised directly by the Prime Minister, and the Prime Minister is Tun Mahathir who has vast knowledge of 93 years. But no, the manifesto says no, and therefore it was a no no. The country lost greatly because of following to the manifesto. Another was giving 20% of the gross earnings of Petronas to the oil producing states. This would have bankrupt Petronas. But what to do, the manifesto says so, so have to do. And now the toll free for highways, this would have bankrupt the country. But what to do, the manifesto says so, so have to do.

    Just was is the purpose of the manifesto? To follow exactly what it says even though it will be a loss to the country, even though it will bankrupt the country? The manifesto is man made, it is not god given, that must be followed. Since it is man made, it must have flaws. It would be not wise to follow even though we know it would be detrimental to the country.

    What can be followed is the purpose of the manifesto. What is the purpose? What is the underlying objective of the manifesto? The main purpose is to uplift the people and the country’s well being. That’s the main underlying objective. And it is this objective that should be the guiding principle of the Pakatan Harapan government.

    To abandon the manifesto completely would not be correct. As this was what was conveyed to the voters. It would give the wrong message the manifesto is just to win votes and thus very unethical.

    I think we should treat the manifesto only as a guideline. This means the government may deviate from the manifesto, but the overall purpose of the manifesto i.e to uplift the people and the country remains in tact.

    What use of the manifesto, if we follow blindly, which results in the country becoming bankrupt and the people suffer? We have to be practical. God have given us brains to think. For example, the free toll highways, this would bankrupt the country as we just don’t have the funds but we do it anyway. But we still follow the manifesto. When the country is bankrupt, that would make the people and country more suffer.

    I completely disagree with the Pakatan Harapan government approach to follow blindly the manifesto without taking into consideration the reality of the situation. What is important is the people and country’s well being. If it means deviating from the manifesto, then so be it.

    If Tun and the cabinet agrees with my suggestion, then this need to be conveyed to the rakyat, that from now onward the manifesto is just a guideline. What is more important is the essence of the manifesto which is to uplift the well being of the people and the nation, which the Pakatan Harapan will vigorously pursue. This will help set the expectation of the rakyat towards the government, and not every time the Pakatan Harapan wants to make a good decision it is binded by the manifesto.

    If the opposition want to politicize this, then so be it. Let the rakyat decide.

    P/S: Tun, please take up the education portfolio. It would really benefit the younger generations and the future of this country.

    Good evening

    I think politician yang memainkan peranan.

    I ingat masa I kecik, ada rancangan tv nama budi pekerti. If I’m not mistaken drama tv, situ di ajar erti muhibbah, saling hormat menghormati antara satu sama lain.

    Macam hubby kata zaman dulu kita boleh panggil hey lu cina, hey lu melayu, bukan racis, sekarang lain.

    Orang dulu cakap gitu pada kawan2 rapat. They are close buddies, bangsa ini cakap la, tak ada apa pun. Mereka saling hormat menghormati dari segi agama dan kepercayaan kawan2 mereka.

    Orang sekarang overly sensitive. To me politician yang memainkan peranan memecah belahkan kaum2. Bila half of the world anti-Chinese tiba2 pulak nak ngaku Malaysian. Pengikut jadi blur.

    Bab histeria, I think dari zaman I kecik dulu pun cerita sama.

    I tau sebab masa I kecik, kakak I yang tua masuk MARA. Orang Melayu kata lemah semangat. Kat MARA histeria, balik rumah pun jerit, dia kata nampak orang pakai putih duduk kat hujung kepala I, nampak benda putih terbang. I tak nampak apa pun.

    Perhaps sebab pusat pengajian dan asrama penuh sering terletak kat ceruk hutan.

    Tak tau kenapa tempat begini jadi pilihan. Mungkin untuk ketenangan pelajar belajar or mungkin takut pelajar lari balik rumah.

    Kalau pelajar tu peminat greenery pencinta lama, mungkin tenang, kalau jenis yang minat bandar, ramai orang lalu lalang, stress juga asyik tengok pokok2, bukit bukau dan gunung ganang, nak keluar pekan pun seminggu sekali.

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Yeah…New Malaysia.

    Azmin: Oktoberfest not a beer festival

    Astaghfirullah…YB Azmin must go back to school I guess. So ignorant indeed…He needs to read/study the history of Oktoberfest, and how it evolved into a Beer (Alcohol) Festival.

    2. Mayor: KL restaurants allowed to hold Oktoberfest events, with conditions

    3. Oktoberfest tak sesuai dianjurkan

    I am so disappointed with the PH Government.

    PH leaders do not respect the fact that Malaysia is a Muslim country, and Islam is our official religion.

    4. Not appropriate for Wan Azizah to campaign in PD polls as DPM, says electoral reform committee

    Our DPM campaigned for her husband! Ish..Ish..Ish…NEW MALAYSIA BOLEH! Was any of the campaigning done during office hours? Just asking…

    How about the other Ministers? Did they use their own car/vehicle (fuel?) when they visited PD (while campaigning for DSAI)? Just wondering…

    Nowadays we have to be very calculative. We have to make sure that the PH leaders spend our money wisely, and make sure that they do not misuse their positions for their own personal gains.

    Thank you Tun.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,


    Orang2 Melayu sejak berzaman sentiasa dimomokkan dengan cerita2 hantu dan perkara2 ghaib.

    Kenapa dan mengapa orang2 dahulu menanam mentaliti sebegini ada kebaikan pada mulanya tetapi lama kelamaan ia sedikit sebanyak meninggalkan kesan pada masyarakat khususnya dalam soal histeria.

    Teringat pesanan orang2 tua supaya pulang rumah sebelum senja melabuhkan diri kerana ketika maghrib syaitan akan mula keluar.

    Betul tindakan dan amaran mereka kerana kita harus bersiap sedia dengan mandi dan tunggu untuk solat maghrib berjemaah sekeluarga.

    Keluar malam tidak elok juga sebab zaman dahulu gelap tiada lampu jalan dan malam begini banyak hantu jembalang berkeliaran.

    Memang benar bila ayahanda Tun nyatakan bangsa lain tidak pula dikaitkan dengan histeria hanya kaum Melayu, begitu juga istilah amuk yang begitu sinonim dengan masyarakat Melayu hingga orang putih terima pakai dan masukkan perkataan itu dalam kamus mereka.

    Orang Melayu yang kununnya lemah semangat akan mudah dijangkiti dengan fenomena histeria ini, nah ini bukan salah mereka kerana setelah beberapa kurun dimomokkan sudah tentu semangat semakin menurun.

    Histeria pun boleh datang dalam pelbagai bentuk dan kadangkala pengidapnya boleh meracau2 dan merepek2 sehingga sipengidapnya boleh beri ugutan pada keluarga dan sebagainya.

    Namun kita kena terima hakikat orang yang diserang histeria memang dalam keadaan terkawal dan janganlah kita berkecil hati atau sensitif sangat kerana apa yang diracaukan bukan seratus peratus benar.

    Lantas untuk mengurangkan gejala histeria ini maka galakkan anak2 Melayu bercampur gaul dengan bangsa2 lain dan cuba timba sesuatu yang baik dari mereka.

    Good evening Tun

    Waduh bukan main lagi, bila Hajar jawab, ada yang post non stop. Molek sangat ke perangai lagu tu. Kira dia nak control sini.

    Tak salah kalau saya tanya ini pada Tun, apakah HBT dan Faridina staff Tun?

    Bab online ini, bukan perkara baru jika seseorang tu ada several accounts. A person boleh pretend dia orang Cina orang Melayu orang India, walaupun dia bukan. Kira nak capai tujuaan tertentu. Boleh pretend pretend.

    Bagus la Nestle nak besarkan kilang MILO. Bagus la Dyson nak besarkan business yang sedia ada di Johor Malaysia. Tahniah Malaysia.

    I nak cerita sikit sini, mungkin ramai juga orang Melayu dah perasan.

    Selepas DAP PKR masuk PH dan menang besar, I pergi Tangs Subang Jaya. Kebetulan saya nak cari barang. Tiba2 kat ruang bilik cuba baju bukan main riuh, I ingat apa, rupanya ada 3 orang nyonya nak cuba baju. Terkejut I. Masa itu terlintas di kepala, hai dulu bukan main senyap dan tertib, sekarang dah jadi macam jaguh kampung tunjuk nak terror.

    Not only that, after Tangs, I tengok kat wall kawan2 FB ada yang letak beberapa video dari Melaka, rakyat keturunan Cina gaduh macam samseng dengan pegawai Rela, baru2 ini EXCO keturunan Cina macam samseng gaduh dengan ramai pakcik yang pakai kopiah. Tertanya2 dalam hati mana pergi budi bahasa mereka2 ini.

    Ingat ya, saya vote PH ok, bukan BN. Dan saya kesal tak sudah.

    So kalau ada jutawan dari negara China nak labur kat sini baiklah fikir betul2. Yang kat dalam dah macam tu, yang datang dari luar macam mana pula nanti.

    Sekian, terima kasih!

    As usual, she too even a chinese dap representing ph, she cannot differentiate halal and haram in the name of oil subsidy, zakat payers and tax payers.

    Yup, the cost of bikin highways is cheaper, but the cost of repair and maintenance is higher in the long run in terms of material, man power and protection of workers.

    In the past i feel sad for all these problems but i dont feel that way anymore.

    If they choose the mediocre as way of life, thats their choice.

    But they cannot use compassion and simpati as the reason to get rich by exploiting those who prefer efficiency as way of life.

    Pendek kata, what will happen, it will happen.

    After being in this blog for a decade, my opinion on this is the rational in abolishing this act just for personal interest to cover up the past mistake is not only politically and economically wrong, and it would eventually end up with increase of government fiscal policy just to fight these social crimes especially in the borders, and could lead to another bombing of war.

    Therefore, it would be better off not to abolish it since we know those in power are more interested in pursuing their power and richness rather than to solve the solve these problems.

    Masa jankga pendek : 5 tahun
    Import duty set by mof : myr1,500 per head per year to be borne by swasta (glc,
    mnc, sdn bhd dan enterprise for example)

    Total projected derma untuk 5 tahun = 5,000,000 x myr1,500 = myr7.5 billion
    Total projected derma untuk 1 tahun = 7,500,000,000 / 5 tahun = myr1.5 billion

    They would rather defend LGE (a kafir) than Islam / Muslims.

    Too bad… Muslims do not need outside enemies when we have people like the “bacul Faridina’s”.

    Assamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    Seksyen 44( 6) Akta Cukai Pendapatan 1967

    Manusia Berbibir Pink Yang Sentiasa Tersenyum Membuatkan Putera Emas Hitam Terpanggil Untuk Menderma.

    Cerita derma dan implikasi cukainya telah pernah kami coretkan dalam blog ini beberapa tahun yang lalu (mungkin makcik penjaga arkib boleh sahkan hendaknya 🙂 ).

    Namun hari ini perkara ini telah digunapakai dalam caj pendakwaan Najib dan Rosmah ala-ala Al Capone yang akhirnya ke Al Catraz atas dakwaan lari cukai seperti saranan kami dahulu.

    Hendak buat macam mana Sir – You do the crime, You do the time @ Bamboo River Retreat.

    Najib beriya-iya keluarkan surat2 dari kerabat emas hitam untuk mempertahankan apa yang beliau terima sememangnya derma.

    Baiklah kita andaikan kesemua hampir RM3 billion itu adalah derma dan apakah implikasi percukaian di bawah ACP 1967?

    Sayangnya Najib bukan institusi atau organisasi yang dibolehkan mendapatkan pengecualian cukai di bawah Seksyen 44 (6) ACP 1967.

    Teringat lagi ceramah Najib di Semenyih dalam bulan Ramadan beberapa tahun yang lalu (dalam arkib YouTube masih ada) menyatakan takkan dia bodoh nak masuk duit sebanyak itu dalam akaun peribadinya, semua itu fitnah ujarnya.

    Fitnah macam warga Bangla ini alami kami kongsikan di sini hihihi ;

    “Seya naik bus dia wurang cikap seya punya kitia ada bau . eni fetna . Seya kitia wangi jugah ada gunah nivea . Eni melesia wurang sukah fetna . Malay people sukah fetna . Sindiri kitia bau bawang chakap bangla bau kitia . Dusa fetna libey bisar daripada dusa buno . Neti awa maso niraka na kulua tabuli .”

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Soalan :

    Adakah keistimewaan yang kita dapat itu adalah saka atau dari keturunan?

    Jawapan :

    Sepertimana Tun Mahathir susah untuk terima kenyataan kenapa wanita muslim sahaja yang yang kena histeria, maka begitulah susahnya saya untuk terima berkenaan saka.

    Samada keistimewaan itu berguna untuk orang ramai atau tidak, perlulah kita periksa diri kita sendiri samada ianya berdasarkan syariat Islam dan tidak perlu mengabaikan amalan wajib seorang muslim.

    Bagi diri saya, saya menulis setelah saya periksa serta selidik fakta samada ia betul atau tidak.

    Nama nama yang saya catatkan kaitannya adalah tercatit dalam sejarah serta mempunyai bukti yang terdekat.

    Seperti Syeikh Abdul Malek dan Tokku Paloh. Di mana mereka adalah wali Allah yang diiktiraf di Tanah Melayu.

    Jikalau kita mempunyai keistimewaan hasil dari peninggalan sila pastikan samada ia boleh diibaratkan (untuk memudahkan kefahaman) seperti ‘karamah’ atau ‘istidraj’- (memesongkan).

    Tiada gunanya jika keistimewaan kita itu adalah mainan syaitan semata mata bahkan bukan dari kurniaan Allah swt.

    Tanda kita menerima keistimewaan kurniaan dari Allah swt adalah kita semakin dekat kepadaNya dan mengalir air mata kerana kasih kita kepadaNya.

    Jika tidak berhati hatilah.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Was it adultery the cause for the canning?

    Yup, in rich and developed countries, male and female are allowed to wear sexy simply mean these countries are safe.

    In poor and under developed countries, male and female are not allowed to wear sexy simply means these countries are not safe.

    In 2 years, under wawasan 2020, we supposed to be a developed country whereby all races feel safe, secure and prosperous.

    I tell you voters tak mudah lupa. I for example ingat lagi kes pertama her driver, her tailor, adik angkat her hubby. Kes kedua PA her hubby. I also ingat her hubby mata bengkak kena tumbuk. I also terbaca recently another kes student Indonesia diSingapura. I juga ingat how LGE jatuhkan Rahim Tamby Chik. Now LGE doing the same jatuhkan Najib. Everyone diatas harap all mudah lupa. Sad to note, I tak mudah lupa.

    When given the chance to be Ministers, you are all not doing your job, instead you are back to your old habits. Look at the stock market, yesterday down -38, at the moment down -46.

    What is this about saving DSAI and your face.

    Sorry ya Tun, I love you but all these way too much…. 🙁

    To any ruling party, their priority is to win votes to stay relevant.

    To opposition party, their priority is to deny votes of ruling party to replace them.

    Her name nikki reminded me of the hollywood box office, i- robot, whereby the fully and highly sophisticated computerized central brain named nikki become ugly and greedy and want to destroy usa, scary isn’t it, just like nerve attacks that made human become zombies and destroy one another in movie 28 days, dont you think so?

    I guess this made mr trump gets mad and accused china of meddling in usa presidency election.

    Since super power president trump decided to declare trade war since to him is easy to win by increasing tarif, china too had choice not to sell cavier to usa, boleh kan?

    It is up to the republicans or democrat to decide which way to go, and its up to the american voters to decide their future hopeful of republican or democrat once they decided to run for presidency in 2020.

    Pendek kata, we are human, and we are not slave.

    In fact, i am optimistic of the future, but with causiously.

    Therefore, whatever forecast, or budget i want to do, i must be able to achieve, bukan sekadar syiok sendiri by declaring forecast or budget just to menyedapkan hati bossku.

    Tak faham?

    Aku bukan bikin unit trust pun nampak, kenapa dia tak paham pulak.

    mubarakchan said malaysian people are spoilt.

    I would say mps of the divides are spoit with forever got tomorrow one kind of political issues that could re-play, again and again just to win votes.

    Whether we like it or not, as voters, our obligation is to vote, itu saja.

    Salam Tun

    Tun tanya pasal governance in the islamic world, tapi ada orang kat sini komen Malaysia bukan negara Islam.

    Tu problem dia dan admin. I tak nak masuk campur.

    I nak share opinion yang disiarkan oleh FMT yang di tulis oleh KYY.

    Which contractor would dare sign contracts with PH now?

    Koon Yew Yin

    I refer to the FMT article saying: “Lim Guan Eng today played down concerns of potential job loss following Putrajaya’s termination of MMC-Gamuda’s contract to build the underground portion of the MRT Line 2 (MRT2).”

    The finance minister said a majority of those affected by the contract termination could be re-hired by the new contractor.

    Yesterday, MMC-Gamuda said the termination would result in “immediate job losses” to over 20,000 people involved in the project from a supply chain of over 600 Malaysian companies.

    “If the project continues, many of these workers can be employed when the contract is awarded,” Lim told reporters when met on the sidelines of the “Malaysia A New Dawn” forum.

    On Sunday, after announcing the termination of MMC-Gamuda’s contract, Lim said all unfinished underground work would be re-tendered via an international open tender process.

    Putrajaya terminated MMC-Gamuda’s contract after the two parties failed to reach an agreement over cost reduction and related issues.

    Lim said the decision was made after the government felt it could achieve “further significant savings”, compared with the offer made by MMC-Gamuda, through re-tendering the underground work package.

    MMC-Gamuda said the termination would unjustifiably expose MMC-Gamuda to “a flood of lawsuits for compensation from terminated employees, sub-contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and so on, whose contracts will similarly be terminated due to no fault of theirs”.

    My advice:

    Since the announcement of MMC-Gamuda’s MRT contract cancellation a couple of days ago, Gamuda’s share price has plunged from RM3.20 to close at RM2.38 per share. It has dropped 82 sen, nearly 11%. Its total issued shares is about 2,468 million. Its market capitalisation has been reduced by RM2,023 million.
    MMC’s share price has also plunged from RM1.38 to close at RM1.14, a drop of 24 sen or 17%. Its market cap has been reduced by RM730 million. Together with Gamuda’s loss of RM2,023 million, this makes RM2,732 million.

    You can imagine the number of shareholders who have lost a total of RM2,732 million. I have not worked out the loss of value in Gamuda warrants.

    Many people have asked me if I am affected. Although I was a co-founder of Gamuda, I do not own any Gamuda shares. I am writing this article with good intentions and I do not have any ulterior motive.

    Besides the termination of Gamuda’s MRT contract, the government has also terminated several other contracts.

    Obviously, Lim does not realise the shareholders of MMC and Gamuda have lost a total of RM1,000 million. He also does not know the complexity of terminating and re-tendering partially completed contracts.

    Lim must be super-efficient to get the successful new renderer to commence work after six months from termination date.

    In the meantime, will he provide food on the table for all workers and their families while waiting for the new contractor to start work?
    In addition, what will Lim do if the new tendered sum is higher than MMC-Gamuda’s price?

    The Pakatan Harapan (PH) government is handling all lopsided multi-billion contacts wrongly by picking on local/foreign contractors instead of MACC directing the previous lawmakers (who executed the lopsided contracts) to explain why the prices were exceptionally high and the contract terms and conditions lopsided.

    Of course, the multi-million ringgit contract terminations please the people who voted for PH in the last general election. But the PH government must also realise the complexity and seriousness of the matter.

    I hope the PH government and Lim realise that their promise to rule by law is not just hot air but must include respect for all the terms and conditions of multi-billion contracts in Malaysia.

    Moreover, the PH government must bear in mind that if you can simply terminate the contracts signed by the Barisan Nasional government, no respectable contractors would dare sign contracts with the PH government for fear that the next government can also terminate the duly signed contracts.

    Koon Yew Yin is a retired chartered civil engineer and one of the founders of IJM Corporation Bhd and Gamuda Bhd.

    Well, as voter, I wonder juga kenapa Najib kena sampai 30 lebih charges, his wife kena belasan charges. Walaupun I tak vote BN, it doesn’t make sense to me for ex-PM kena begitu banyak charges. I also wonder why LGE kata if he were the PM, dia nak pin 5 murder charges on Najib. What is he talking about? I also don’t understand why AI kata tak nak guna jentera kerajaan, tapi semua menteri termasuk Tun turun ke PD nak bantu AI kempen. I also don’t understand why AI naik kereta official Mat Sabu, dan ada berita army kem tak benarkan calon yang bertanding masuk kem. Adakah ini bermakna hanya calon PH sahaja yang boleh masuk.

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. I read the following news several days ago:

    I thought Tun was the one who vehemently opposed the idea of repealing the Sedition Act in the past when DSN and gang wanted to do so. So now I am not sure what is happening. I believe we still need the Sedition Act to ensure peace and harmony in our multi-racial country.

    2. Allow me Tun:

    Mr. Fariq Islam (Oct 9,2018 10:35 AM),

    Please stop being an IMPOSTOR.

    YOU ARE NOT A MUSLIM, and please stop insulting Islam with your so called very ‘polite’ comments. And please also eliminate the word ‘Islam’ from you pseudonym.

    You wrote: “For example, the most typical act was calling non-Muslim “kafir”. This act not only harmed the inter-racial harmony, but only indirectly retarded the reputation of Islam.”

    For your information, ‘kafir’ is an Arabic word, which means ‘non-muslim’ (those who do not accept Islam as their religion). You can find this word being mentioned in the Quran many times. You are insulting the Quran (Al-Quran Al-Karim).

    I have known (100% sure) for a long time that you are not a Muslim. So please stop pretending. What you are doing is so disgusting! You have been preaching to everyone here about good values, but just look at yourself. You are a liar and a hypocrite!

    You can prove me wrong, but I have my way of testing if you are a TRUE MUSLIM. Thanks.

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Yep,samada kita demokrasi, monarki atau diktator, kita tetap perlu patuh pada pemimpin.

    Ini bagi mengelak dari berlaku perkara perkara yang tidak diingini sehingga mengakibatkan pembunuhan dan huru hara.

    Kita pernah lalui ini dengan izin Allah swt. Kita pernah lihat bagaimana ia terjadi.

    Namun alhamdulillah ia berakhir dengan baik walaupun proses yang dilalui oleh orang yang menentang itu telah ditekan habis habisan.

    Sudah tentu kita mengambilkira sistem nilai dalam meneruskan proses menukar kerajaan.

    Salah satu kreteria terpenting dalam proses menukar kerajaan adalah kesanggupan Tun Mahathir membetulkan kesilapan yang berlaku dalam tindakan beliau apabila ditegur oleh saya.

    Seperti saya katakan, saya mencuit tangan Tun ketika di Muar dan diberi ruang yang luas oleh pengiring Tun, sekadar saya menziarahi.

    Adakah sama sepertimana Tun memberi ziarah kepada anggota keselamatan ketika Lahad Datu tempohari?

    Jika Tun Mahathir tidak melakukan tindakan seperti yang diperbincangkan, berkemungkinan besar saya menarik diri dari melakukan proses penukaran kerajaan.

    Kerajaan Islam (atau kerajaan langit?) mempunyai sistem tersendiri.

    Apabila anda membahaskan sesuatu perkara di khalayak ramai, maka tadahlah tangan anda ketika berdoa, kerana ada di antaranya makbul doa.

    Tiada guna membahaskan samada anda demokrasi, monarki atau diktator.

    Yang terpenting adalah sistem nilai itu sendiri yang perlu memahami apa itu demokrasi, monarki atau diktator.

    Iman dan takwa.

    Begitulah bagaimana kerajaan Islam ditadbir.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Good morning

    Nampaknya kawan2 lama dalam blog ini ramai dah tak sudi nak sumbang sepatah dua.

    I just nak share something interesting about Rafidah Aziz. Bila bersuara ramai terkedu, ramai yang memuji termasuk stock broking company, mereka memberi tajuk khas *Pearls of wisdom from Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz:* Canggih kan!

    Tengok tu mana ada pearls of wisdom dari LGE, AI, Rafizi, Kak Wan. Jangan ingat I mengata pandai2 sendiri. Cuba baca banyak sites, I panggil alternative views, banyak dok mengata mereka2 diatas. Usahlah baca sites penyokong tegar, itu kita dah tau apa mereka nak cakap.

    Dalam democracy education penting, tapi Tun yang nak menjawat jawatan itu pun ditentang. Pelik bin ajaib, boleh pula kocoh2 nak jadi MP, kocoh annouce menang, kocoh pardon, sikit lagi kocoh nak jadi DPM, lepas itu kocoh nak jadi PM.

    Take care Tun. Please choose your support wisely.

    My way or your way will be no way if they still continue with giving freebies via donations.

    I have gone through all those ugly politically motivated protests.

    I cannot do something that could hurt my race, and my race too is the part of dna that bring malaysia to be where we are today.

    When i cannot do something that could hurt my race, then naturally, i would not do something that could hurt my other races as well kerana mereka pun adalah dna that bring this country to where we are.

    Yup, we have general election in every 5 years.

    Therefore, benefits of doubts is the safest and best way to move forward since no one knows who is swimming naked in there.

    Boat rocking is bad, so pandai2lah pendekar dan perjuang agama masing2.

    Sabotage is even worst.

    Whoever breaks the rule first, then, they will be disqualified even when no police reports are made.

    Belum masuk padang finale, dah start tikam sesama diri in pd, dont you think thats ugly?

    Yup, when the referee plays dirty, and suddenly chop the rope in the middle, then, both sides will fall.

  122. HBT456 Oct 9,2018 4:47 PM

    But, that does not mean islam can chop heads and hands for their next of king to rein, right?

    By looking at the way the jebats and buffologists in war war the name of islam, what does that mean?

    Is islam a political tool to chop heads and hands, the ball is on the desk of mof putrajaya, mr lim guan eng.

    Will he take their cows, and shoot them after that for their own faedah in post it era whereby all info could be shared with touch of finger?

    Big can never fail?

    Too big to fail?

    Political parties to dictate who gets what, and who dont get what?

    New emperor’s cloth in making?

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Therefore, it is up to the political of the divides to rebut2 to become the next kingmaker.

    Kaum cina ini hanya pendatang, therefore, no matter how hard we work, we are always pendatang to them dari dulu hingga sekarang.

    Jika nak bagi, we are greatful.

    Jika tak nak bagi, then the best way is to leave.

    We too have the basic rights to vote for federal and state levels too.

    Will history repeat itself?

    By looking at the way the jebats and buffologists in war war sesama diri, they have not change at all.

    When ph make the 1st mistake, they too would end up like bn.

    Bak kata, lambat takpa, janji selamat.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    “Islam Is A Way of Life And After”

    There is a common saying in the teaching of Islam.. ‘Do your best ibadah as though you are going to die tomorrow and Do work hard to enrich yourself as though you are going to live for a thousand years.’

    This is the way of life and life after that Islam preaches and promote for the betterment of humankind.

    Allah swt have chosen the Arabs to spread the teaching of Islam for a certain reason because they are known to be too tribal and dis-united.

    For the first few hundred years after Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him returns to his Creator the Arabs were united and observed the Islamic way of life which balances both world and they were indeed very far more advance from the rest of the world.

    The rest is history as been explained by the most qualified statesman of the Islamic world none other than ayahanda Tun M himself.

    I still recalled our 4th Prime Minister used to describe the Arabs as very dis-united for example if they decided to attack a tiny nation it will be such a mess or chaos as some will attack at 9am the other at 12noon and etcetera.

    No co-ordination at all and indeed if the whole Arab world were united and all of them were to spit simultaneously onto that tiny nation most probably that tiny nation will sink and fail to exist at all.

    But that was not the story and the Arabs stays exclusively tribal and focus more on giving absolute power to the ruler and to that note they are the ruler who rules!

    Let us think for while now other than choosing the Arabs to spread the teaching of Islam why is Allah swt gave blessing to the Arab world by giving them the most valuable commodity in the world in the form of black gold!

    This happened when the empire of Islam has collapsed and most of the Islamic countries are poor.

    Maybe the purpose of this black gold is to once again make the Arabs united and be at par with the more advanced Western countries which have left them far ahead.

    Unfortunately the black gold only changes the physical of the individual rich middle east countries and no ‘rich thy neighbour’ policy and even strengthen and riches their rulers to the level of billionaires.

    Where in the world can we find the most number of billionaires in the whole world if not in the middle east and how it effected us in Malaysia?

    Now naturally this black gold will eventually fades the teaching of Islam because of greed and corruption and how it effected us in Malaysia?

    Moral of the story here : If there is no Black Gold then there won’t be any billionaire Prince to donate billions of ringgit to Mr Najib and Malaysia will not become corrupt and inheriting debts amounting to a trillion ringgit hihihi..

    The End.

  124. Fariq Islam Oct 9,2018 10:35 AM

    Assalamualaikum, Tun.

    Sorry to say, since the early days, the outset, our Malaysian Government made a mistake, by allowing the set-up of religion-based political party.

    The religion-based political party tends to use religion name, to the advantage and personal interest of politicians, disregarding the true religion teachings and values. For example, the most typical act was calling non-Muslim “kafir”. This act not only harmed the inter-racial harmony, but only indirectly retarded the reputation of Islam.

    The Star clarifies Mujahid interview on khalwat raids

    ON Oct 6, we ran a story on Page 4 in The Star with the headline “Putting compassion into practice” and “No more night khalwat raids or intrusion into Muslims’ private life, says Mujahid” in The Star Online.

    The first paragraph of the story says “No more knocks on the door in the middle of the night and no more breaking down of doors by the religious authorities investigating reports of khalwat or other alleged wrongdoings.”

    We would like to clarify that the paragraph was not attributed to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa and not his quote.

    It was based on a reply to a question: “Let’s say someone commits adultery behind closed doors, which is khalwat. Now your officers can break down the door and arrest them. Will this change?”

    For the record, the minister replied: “This issue of enforcement of what you call khalwat has been misused – not all of it, but there have been times where it has been exploited and misused.

    “The enforcement of khalwat falls within the state judiciary and is not exactly under my jurisdiction, but we can have a platform where we meet all state directors of departments of Islamic affairs and share the concerns of the federal government on these issues.”

    We regret the confusion which had arisen from the said report.


  126. HBT456 Oct 8,2018 10:16 PM

    The muslim even do that in usa too until the taxpayers there complained.

    When the taxpayers complained to the authorithy, obviously they need to lower down the volume as per noise polution standard what.

    Even though indonesia has the largest muslim population in the world, but their people are still amat poor with bencana gempa bumi, gunung berapi dan tsunami walaupun mereka dah merdeka berpuluh2 tahun.

    Since general election is coming, obviously president jokowi remained silent on this issue so that it wont be used as political milleage to bring him and and his party down since the blashphemy was drafted and approved by dulu punya pemerintah.

    Yup, for all issues pertaining to islam and fatwa, it is up to the states’ sultan to decide and everyone is aware on that.

    But when comes to federal issues, it is up to the members of parliament to decide tak kisah mp tu orang melayu, orang cina, orang india, orang asli dan lain2.

    Good evening Tun

    Thank you admin. Isu yang berat. I demam selsema sukar nak fikir lebih2. Mungkin kawan forummers yang Islam lain, boleh lontarkan pendapat mereka.

    Anyway, I nak share news a month ago in Indonesia.

    Woman who complained about noisy mosque jailed for blasphemy
    Prosecutors allege she committed blasphemy against Islam by complaining the Muslim call to prayer was being played too loudly near her home

    An Indonesian court has sentenced a Buddhist woman to 18 months in prison for blasphemy after she was accused of insulting Islam.

    Meiliana, a 44-year-old ethnic Chinese woman, had complained the Muslim call to prayer, which is repeated five times a day, was being played too loudly at the mosque near her house in North Sumatra.
