TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

KERAJAAN PAKATAN HARAPAN 56

1. When a new party takes over as a Government, it would be a miracle if it were to execute all its plans and promises overnight. Certainly, when PH took over from BN which had ruled the country for the past 60 years, it would be an even greater miracle if it can implement its plans and agenda immediately. It is not taking over just any Government. It took over from a kleptocratic Government which had raped the nation for years, destroyed its finances, undermined its administrative agencies, abused its laws, borrowed well beyond the ceiling permitted, placed the country on the path to bankruptcy, made the people dependent on the Government with bribes and generally undermined the moral of the people.

2. Of course, a lot of people were happy to enjoy corrupt money and many illegal favours. They would like these bad practices to continue. But the majority of the people knew the sad state of the country and ensured that the corrupt Government was overthrown.

3. This was a miracle of sorts. A “hodge-podge” coalition of 4 parties, together with another party outside the coalition and even a person not linked in any way to the parties, took over.

4. They were united only in the desire to bring down the kleptocratic Government. Otherwise they each had their own ideology and agenda. In other countries when a common objective is achieved, the fragile unity would break up as each party would try to take over. A bitter struggle would ensue. In the end the coalition would break up. In one Middle Eastern country, the ensuing struggles ended up with the military seizing power. It was back to square one.

5. This did not happen in Malaysia. The fragile opposition coalition was sustained, even with the inclusion of a non-member party as well as an independent individual who joined the cabinet. They formed a Government. And they seem to be working together, having formed a cabinet without any written agreement as to who takes what. This is the 2nd miracle. The cabinet seems to work. At least they can meet, discuss and make decisions. Of course, many criticised their decisions. This is normal. No Government can have the approval of everyone every time. The important thing is that this fragile cabinet is still functioning.

6. But many would say, this Government is directionless. Is it? Let’s look at what it has done. Despite a huge debt of well over a trillion Ringgit, it apparently has been able to retain the solvency of the country. The creditors are not suing the Government. Indeed, some are even keen to lend more money at low rates. The Government is clearly credit worthy. The debt has been reduced.

7. Politically the country is stable. Yes, there are some disturbances in a member of the ruling coalition. But this is normal. No one has tried to overthrow the Government by a vote of non-confidence. They know it will not succeed.

8. Then the economy. It is still growing at a good rate for a country at this stage of development. Yes, there is an outflow of funds and the currency has been devalued. This is a function of the market. Malaysia still has the biggest savings. Bank Negara Reserve is very high – RM400 billion plus. Other funds, such as PNB, KWSP, and some smaller funds add up to over RM1.5 trillion. Foreign assets are big. National Oil Company Petronas is doing well with more than 100 billion income. It is 100% Government owned. Yes, the Ringgit is depreciating. In many other countries, reserves of this size would guarantee the strength of the national currency. But the market apparently cannot believe this strength of the Malaysian finances and its currency.

9. The fact is that the Malaysian economy and its currency are strong. The market and the detractors may not think so. But the Government has faith in its financial and economic policies. And so do foreign and local investors.

10. Socially, the Government has launched the Shared Prosperity scheme. For our detractors this does not indicate clear direction. But for the Government the direction is clear. We don’t want just to recover and be prosperous. We want to share our wealth equitably.

11. Towards this end we have initiated a new industrial plan, complemented by a new agricultural plan. I will not elaborate. But we know the direction we are going. Outsiders may not. But we do.

12. We are clear as to what we want to do and how we will do it. Plans may take a week or so to create but implementation will take much longer, at least two years or more. But the work has already begun. For the observers it would seem that nothing is moving. Rome was not built in one day. When Malaysia was switching from an agro-based economy to an industrial economy, it also took time. But most of us could not remember and the young never saw the transition. Most were born when the transition was accomplished. It is difficult to imagine an agricultural Malaysia today.

13. The same will happen now. The transition will take time – perhaps two years or more from now. But believe me it will happen. Indeed in some ways it is already happening. We are going paperless and soon there will be cashless. Digitalisation is already happening and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is contributing towards increasing speed of work and transaction.

14. Even for me it is frustrating to wait. But wait we must. The machinery of Government has been cleansed and is rapidly adapting to the new ways of working. Even the Ministers are adjusting to being in the Government instead of the opposition.

15. The accusation that this PH Government is directionless is made by those who refuse to acknowledge reality. Are we really the same as the Malaysia under the previous Government? Or are they saying they prefer the kleptocratic Government better.

16. We don’t steal money nor raise loans so as to have money for bribing people. We spend what we have. What we have is less money. We cannot afford to give free money to people. Our way is to increase or create jobs. But the people must be willing to take up the jobs or the business opportunities created.

17. We are doing all these. But we are not attracting attention to them. In time they will become clear contribution to the country’s economy.

18. The world today is in a state of turmoil. No one is really doing well. Look at what is happening in Latin America, the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, even Australia. Only China, Japan, and South Korea are doing relatively well, but even the countries of Northeast Asia are having intractable problems.

19. Then look at Malaysia. We are stable, peaceful and the Government respects the law. We are removing draconian laws or suspending them pending abolishment or amendment. People feel safe travelling anywhere in the country. During the celebration of the new year 60 to 80 thousand people gathered to enjoy the shows. This cannot happen even in some developed countries.

20. I will not talk about natural disasters. We have been spared though we are not quite grateful.

21. Yes. Malaysia is recovering from the disasters caused by the previous Kleptoctatic Government. Even now we are enjoying better governance.

22. Give the Government a little bit of time and participate fully in the Shared Prosperity Policies, and in two years time you will realise that the direction of the Government is right.

    I baru baca artikel ini di FMT, I share pendapat penulis ini disini

    Mitos ‘sekolah Cina bagus’

    Faisal Tehrani -January 16

    Mengapakah murid Cina hampir tiada di Sekolah Kebangsaan? Satu kajian mesti dilakukan.

    Mungkin ia disebabkan taburan penduduk mengikut bangsa kini semakin tidak seimbang. Mana tidaknya, ada yang malah ingin membina projek perumahan yang sudah tentu akan didiami oleh Melayu-Islam sahaja, dengan serba-serbi fasiliti Islami, bertemakan “berjiran dengan enta sampai ke syurga”.

    (Baca: “Jiran enta di sebelah bukan Cina, jadi tiada bau minyak masakan babi hinggap di seluar dalam yang tersidai di luar; dan tiada salakan anjing meningkah azan.”)

    Asalkan Awang seorang Muslim, tak mengapalah meski Awang memelihara kucing yang berak tiga kali sehari di laman rumah enta.

    Kita ambil contoh Bandar Baru Bangi, di mana jumlah penduduk Cinanya amatlah terhad (jangan-jangan sifar). Sekolah Kebangsaan di sini tiada kelihatan anak Cina.

    Penempatan sekolah berdasarkan alamat kediaman. Jika ramai penduduk taman perumahan berbangsa Melayu, maka di sekolah terdekat akan dominan anak Melayu.

    Jadi, masalah kita lebih besar dari itu. Jika satu-satu kaum berkumpul di satu-satu tempat tanpa imbangan, ia akan mendorong kejahilan terhadap kaum yang lain dengan serius. Ini kerana tiada dialog berlaku.

    Pun, saya difahamkan itu juga bukan kesnya.

    Di kawasan yang jumlah penduduk Cina, India dan Melayu hampir seimbang pun, kita tidak menemukan anak-anak Cina di Sekolah Kebangsaan.

    Jadi ada kemungkinan besar bangsa Cina memboikot Sekolah Kebangsaan. Ada juga yang berhujah anak-anak Melayu turut bersekolah di Sekolah Cina. Saya berpendapat, kecilnya jumlah Melayu dan India di Sekolah Cina tidak dapat dihujahkan bahawa Sekolah Cina lebih multikultur dari Sekolah Kebangsaan.

    Begini, ada satu mitos: Sekolah Cina lebih bagus. Kerana bahasa Mandarin itu maha penting. Atau lebih canggih alasannya, Sekolah Cina lebih berdisiplin. Selain itu, kononnya senang mendapat pekerjaan.

    Tukang cat rumah saya, Ah Leong, memberitahu yang dia tidak mahu anaknya ke Sekolah Kebangsaan kerana guru akan mendorong anaknya masuk Islam. Dia takut anak lelakinya belajar sama dengan budak perempuan Melayu. Juga, di Sekolah Kebangsaan kononnya terdapat rasisme. Seolah-olah di Sekolah Cina tiada perkauman.

    Saya tanyakan dari manakah dia beroleh kecurigaan ini. Beliau menjawab: media sosial dan dorongan dari tokoh pendidik bangsa Cina.

    Ah Leong berpendapat tak mengapa anaknya tidak boleh berbahasa Melayu. Anak-anaknya masih kelak boleh mendapat pekerjaan mudah, lagi pun bahasa Mandarin ada nilai ekonomi. Ah Leong berani menceritakan ini semua kerana ternampakkan pelekat magnet lambang parti DAP di peti sejuk dapur rumah saya.

    Prasangka liar terhadap Sekolah Kebangsaan ini dapat difahami. Padahal PIBG ada kuasa menentukan pendekatan yang diambil sekolah.

    Pokoknya, kalau anda lantang dalam mesyuarat PIBG, segala yang salah boleh dibetulkan.

    Di sebuah mesyuarat PIBG yang saya hadiri, di sebuah Sekolah Kebangsaan yang majoritinya Melayu, seorang bapa, Awang (bukan nama sebenar) ada mengusulkan agar diwajibkan sembahyang berjemaah di sekolah untuk waktu Zohor dan Asar.

    Mujur, guru besar waras dan tegas mengatakan, “Sekolah Kebangsaan bukan sekolah Abim atau sekolah Ikram atau sekolah agama. Jika ingin solat berjamaah, hantar anak kalian ke sana. Sekolah ini Sekolah Kebangsaan, ada pelbagai bangsa dan agama.”

    PIBG medan anda sebagai warganegara untuk turut serta dalam membuat keputusan bersama. Jika anda malas menghadiri mesyuarat PIBG, anda tidak berhak melolong kemudian hari mengenai hal-hal fundamental yang sudah menjadi bubur kerana tidak ditangani ketika ia masih nasi.

    Sukar untuk kita memahami sikap kumpulan pendidik Cina. Kita boleh mengambil contoh terdekat untuk diukur.

    Di Singapura, Kamsiah Abdullah menulis sebuah makalah ilmiah mengenai nasib dan pengalaman sekolah vernakular Melayu dalam tulisan bertajuk “Sekolah Menengah Melayu di Singapura 1959-1987”.

    Kamsiah dari Nanyang Technological University menulis bagaimana perpisahan Singapura dan Malaysia mendorong kepada pendidikan dengan falsafah berteraskan “multilingualism” dan meritokrasi.

    Akhirnya 2 sekolah Melayu terakhir di negara itu, Sekolah Sang Nila Utama dan Sekolah Tun Seri Lanang, terpaksa ditutup demi menjayakan falsafah pendidikan sebuah negara baru.

    Akan tetapi, apakah yang kumpulan pendidik Cina lakukan di Singapura?

    Mereka membina tembok lain. Mereka masuk ke dalam satu daerah sendiri, menceraikan masyarakat sekeliling dan mendirikan tembok besar.

    Mereka mendirikan Sekolah “Special Assistance Plan” atau SAP yang tujuannya untuk membangunkan kemahiran 2 bahasa bertunjangkan nilai-nilai Cina: “effectively bilingual students that are inculcated with traditional Chinese values”.

    Yang dimaksudkan 2 bahasa itu tentulah bahasa Mandarin, dan bahasa Inggeris. Jadi SAP itu Sekolah Cina.

    Apakah kesannya? Sebuah laporan yang baik untuk menjelaskan bahana ini tulisan Ethel Pang berjudul “As Long As SAP Schools Exist, Chinese Elitism in Singapore Will Exist”.

    Dalam laporan yang cukup objektif itu, Pang melaporkan bagaimana beberapa pelajar Melayu atau India yang bersekolah di Sekolah SAP ini mengalami rasisme.

    Bukan itu sahaja, pelajar Cina di SAP dikesani tidak dapat membezakan mana satu India dan Melayu, serta hanya kenal nilai Cina (dan bukan nilai Singapura yang kosmopolitan).

    Tentu tidak adil menghujahkan Sekolah Cina di Singapura dengan Sekolah Cina di sini. Tetapi, adil atau tidak, kita harus mendengar keluhan teman-teman Cina dari etnik Hakka betapa pemaksaan bahasa Mandarin sebagai dialek tunggal bangsa Cina menjadikan dialek mereka mengakis.

    Adakah Sekolah Cina bagus? Saya tidak tahu siapa memulai mitos ini.

    Saya terlupa bertanyakan Ah Leong. Dia tukang cat sahaja, tetapi nampak dia serba tahu. Ini kerana pedomannya ada pada Facebook, manakala Confuciusnya Whatsapp!

    Sekolah-sekolah kebangsaan terbaik di Selangor adalah Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan 3; Sekolah Kebangsaan Sri Petaling; Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Jelutong; Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah; Sekolah Kebangsaan Saujana Impian; Sekolah Kebangsaan Seksyen 9 Shah Alam.
    Ikut serta dalam senarai ini sebuah Sekolah Cina, Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (C) Lick Hung, yang juga Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi di SS19, Subang Jaya.

    Jadi, kita dapat melihat di Selangor, dan kebanyakan negeri lain, Sekolah Kebangsaan juga kompetitif. Hanya di satu dua negeri seperti Melaka dan Pulau Pinang sahaja Sekolah Kebangsaan ketinggalan.

    Sudah tentu kita mengharapkan sekolah yang baik adalah sekolah yang baik; tidak perlu dikotakkan atas mana-mana bahasa atau aliran.

    Tambahan pula, Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil paling tertinggal dalam semua kelompok sekolah ini. Hal ini, nasib anak-anak India satu lagi kepedihan tidak terungkapkan. Padahal kita perlu berlaku adil kepada semua anak-anak.

    Semuanya bangsa Malaysia yang mahu mencapai bermacam-macam kemajuan di masa akan datang. Kita belum pula bincangkan anak Orang Asli dan di kawasan pedalaman Sabah dan Sarawak.

    Sudah tentu saya sebagai seorang liberal akan bersetuju jika sekolah vernakular Cina ditutup, maka semua sekolah atau institusi pendidikan yang khas untuk Melayu seperti MRSM, atau UiTM juga eloklah dikatup.

    Bahkan, kita boleh tutup sama semua sekolah tahfiz. Kita beritahu kepada ibu bapa supaya masuk syurga dengan kapasiti sendiri, bukan menunggang anak-anak menjadikan mereka hafiz.

    Lagi pun, berapa banyak masalah moral di sekolah-sekolah agama? Hal liwat meliwat lain, hal keselamatan sehingga hangus terbakar lagi lain, dan hal merekrut Islam jalur keras satu lagi masalah yang tiada penghujung.

    Kepada golongan liberal yang anak atau cucunya tidak ke Sekolah Kebangsaan (bahkan menghantar anak ke sekolah antarabangsa/swasta), kemudian bertutur bahasa Melayu jauh-jauh, atau sama sekali kurang arif bidang pendidikan; saya dengan rasa rendah diri menasihati – tidaklah usah masuk terjun dalam arus yang kurang anda kenali – memandangkan sudah ada gerakan liberal yang baik-baik perjuangannya menjuarai wanita seperti Sisters in Islam; atau mendorongkan Islam Progresif seperti Islamic Renaissance Front, atau dalam bidang pendidikan ada pula Parent Action Group for Education (PAGE).

    Buatlah kerja dalam bidang yang belum diterokai dan bukan merampas kerja-kerja orang sebelum kalian. Jadi bergabung dan majulah bersama-sama mereka.

    Wong Tai-Chee tokoh pendidikan Cina dihormati, ada menulis sebuah artikel yang diterjemahkan ke bahasa Melayu dengan judul “Makna Kewarganegaraan dan Diaspora Pada Hari Ini”.

    Beliau menyerukan Cina Malaysia agar menghayati makna kewarganegaraan yang tidak lagi nostalgik dan terikat oleh ikatan budaya dan darah.

    Kata beliau: “Memandangkan orang Cina Malaysia memiliki kewarganegaraan Malaysia, secara langsungnya mereka kehilangan hak kewarganegaraan China yang ditinggalkan oleh nenek moyang dan bukan lagi diaspora Cina.

    “China bukan lagi tanah air mereka. Definisi baharu bagi tanah air tidak lagi bergantung pada bukti tradisional seperti budaya dan ikatan darah, tetapi berdasarkan pengiktirafan dan perasaan kekitaan dalam konsep kewarganegaraan.”

    Beliau seterusnya berpesan kepada generasi Cina Malaysia yang lebih berusia agar lebih membumi dan memahami realiti semasa, sambil mengambil kira “kesedaran tempatan”.

    Di samping itu beliau secara halus mengingatkan rasa kedekatan dengan kemakmuran China itu hanyalah satu ilusi dan bukan kenyataan:

    “Warga Cina Malaysia yang lebih berusia menaruh perasaan mendalam terhadap China, jauh berbanding mana-mana gunung dan laut di tanah airku, Malaysia.”

    Beliau seterusnya menambah, “Sesetengah orang Cina mencari jalan keluar secara rohani dengan menjadikan kejayaan China sebagai peristiwa yang menggembirakan diri sendiri. Galakan rohani ini sebenarnya ilusi, sebaliknya perjuangan hak mereka melalui kesedaran tempatan barulah praktikal.”

    Mungkin saya patut bertanyakan kepada Profesor Wong Tai-Chee, siapa yang beliau maksudkan dengan “warga Cina Malaysia yang lebih berusia menaruh perasaan mendalam terhadap China, jauh berbanding mana-mana gunung dan laut di tanah airku, Malaysia”?

    Jika kita tidak membetulkan semua ini hari ini, dalam sedekad umat Melayu yang takutkan tanglung, dan umat Cina yang menggeletar ternampak tulisan Jawi, akan kian bertambah.

    Tatkala itu, saya tidak dapat membayangkan mitos apa lagi yang akan dicipta.

    Artikel ini adalah pandangan penulis dan tidak semestinya mewakili FMT.

    I cuma minat saham I naik, bursa malaysia naik. Tapi masaalahnya dengan PH, lebih banyak menyebabkan saham satu Malaysia jatuh.

    I tak minat politik, kalau nak kaji balik memang PH lebih buruk dari BN. Masaalah besar dengan PH always rasa diri mereka betul. Dah beberapa kali dah BN menang bila ada pilihan raya, tapi PH masih tak nak belajar dari kesilapan, masih tetap anggap mereka ANGEL. Oh please la no one you all selamat melainkan diri you all sahaja.

    I also sometimes pelik bila ada orang kat forum investment cerita pasal politik. I wonder mereka ini labur dalam stock market ka. I mean kalau mereka labur sudah tentu mereka concentrate kat stocks mereka, tidaklah merewang fikir bende lain. Beside kalau cakap pasal politik bukan boleh buat duit, hanya buat penat jari menaip sahaja.

    Kan ka tugas kita dah ada bila election sahaja. Masa itu kita pilih calon yang layak untuk represent kita. Buat masa ini mengikut my pengkiraan dengan melihat berita terbaru seperti Latefa Koya saman menyaman dan tiada kes liwat AI, I doubt la PH menang.

    Anyway Tun, apahal dengan politician PKR seperti Anwar dan Lateefa, mereka ini takde kerja lain ka, untuk menafaatkan rakyat amnya.

    Good night Tun. Sleep tight. I always hope I tidor nyenyak, tapi kadang2 tak boleh tidor bila tengok saham makin menurun and I hilang mata pencarian.

    Saya lagi expert because i can foreseen the future in next 20 years, you percayaku tak?

    After going through all these horendous politics of flip then flop, i do not want to get involve anymore.

    Its up to the younger generation leadership of melayu dll kaum to decide their future career in politics.

    Will it end up another white elephant project?

    No matter what happen, there will be yesayers and naysayers.

    Henceforth, general election must be called to get the mandate from the voters.

    Dah dianakyatimkan berpuluh2 tahun just to make malay and bumiputra hepi, still not enough?

    Melayu mps themselves also dont care, why should you care as non malay mps?
    Lawan tetap Lawan, bukan?
    By the end of the day, it is up to the mps to do their parts to win votes.
    Malu atau Lawan, it is up to them to decide.

    Mampu kah atau tidak mampu to raise another peperangan dingin in dewan rakyat negara just to stay relevant?

    Itu terpulang kepada mereka keranamu Malaysia.

    Is it a blessing gift?
    Is it a curse gift?

    I do not want to peningkan kepala aku since i dont need to face the voters.

    Betul tetap betul.
    Salah tetap salah.
    Jika tak boleh tentukan, then, call for general election.

    Adakah itu halal?
    Adakah itu haram?
    The decision is with the perdana menteri at putrajaya.
    My obligation is to vote.

    New Malaysia?
    Moslem Malaysia?

    MPs of the divide should know the consequences, iaitu mampu, atau tidak mampu.

    Umno baru was not deregistered this time, sibotak.
    Why?
    EC is handpicked by Perdana Menteri of Malaysia.

    There is no way umno baru can do what they like before even when they merge with pas and proposed muafakat nasional as option, atau alternative to barisan nasional to split votes again and again just to stay relevant.

    Do you really know what is going on, sibotak?

    If you dont, then, you really need to ask yourself, apa lagi you mahu, sibotak?
    You can fool us sometimes, but you cannot fool us all the time.

    Ayuh, siapakah mahu jadi tuah dan jebat dengan slogan melayu yang power giler iaitu malu apa, bossku?

    P/s: Finance minister? WHO are you referring to, twinpeaks? Please dont quote me since i am just a voter. Hajar can hate my race, but she cannot stop my race to deny her a vote. jika main politik sampai tahap ini, then, lebih baik jangan undi as check and balance, dont you think so, twinpeaks?

    If you want to build up the work ethics of someone, you have to do it when he is very young, when he is still at Primary school. But you don’t send him to become a soldier, do you.. You will be castrated by Human Rights if you do that. That’s stupid.

    And you cannot change the character of a Mat Rempit (or whatever) because he is already hardened. His brain cannot be changed. Don’t waste time. Focus on the still young children. Parents must play their role. Change the parent’s mentality so that they are not fanatical. Make them more rational in their thinking. Then they will do what is right for their own families.

    That’s the right way.

  11. twinpeaks Jan 14,2020 8:50 AM

    The National Service(???). Don’t make me laugh.

    No, you don’t need this anachronism. It does not serve any purpose. Who on earth are you trying to invade? Indonesia?… They will laugh at you. Singapore?… You don’t need troops. You just send the battle tanks and they will surrender. Thailand?… Their men are too soft to fight anyway, our professional army are strong enough. In any case, ASEAN countries don’t have any reason to invade each other. We are economic neighbors. Diplomacy is the ASEAN way. So Malaysia’s only potential nemesis since Day One is the Commies of China. And you DON”T send your troops to fight 1 billion PLA; you pick up the phone and the US Marines will come with the two aircraft carriers’ flotilla. Together with the US Navy, we will defend our share of the South China Sea with our Scorpene subs at Sepangar Bay naval base.

    The only reason why any country needs a National Service is if you are trying to preserve your national integrity, like Israel. And the only reason why the Arabs are trying to invade Israel is, well.., because that’s their national pastime. That’s why they never progress beyond the desert. It’s the ancient Bedouin mentality… an eye for an eye. Try saying that to a Malay farmer, he wouldn’t have a clue what you are on about. The Malay farmer simply wants to go to his rice field. He wakes up before dawn and toil in his paddy field. It doesn’t matter if he is poor, that’s his business. Same goes for the Malay fisherman. They are nature’s gentlemen… not some sword-wielding camel-riding head-to-toe covered Bedouins.

    Pardon the pun.

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Saya doakan calon BN, Mohamad Alamin, menang di PRK Kimanis. Mohamad Alamin lebih menyerlah dan nampak lebih berkredibiliti.

    https://www.sinarharian.com.my/article/61598/BERITA/Nasional/tak-puas-hati-prestasi-PH

    https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2020/01/12/will-action-be-taken-against-tourism-minister-for-breaching-electoral-law-m/1827231

    Pengerusi SPR yang pro-PH pun tidak berkredibiliti dan tidak amanah dalam menjalankan tugas. Dulu bukan main lagi mengutuk orang lain. Bila diberi kepercayaan dan amanah, hampeh saja prestasinya.

    Tun tidak sepatutnya membandingkan tugas Polis dengan tugas Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM kerana bidang tugas /kuasa dan tanggungjawab mereka berbeza. Tun mesti terima hakikat yang Puan Latheefa Koya telah melanggar undang-undang Negara. Ya, kononnya PH mendaulatkan undang-undang Negara.

    https://www.bharian.com.my/berita/nasional/2020/01/645974/tindakan-latheefa-koya-dedah-rakaman-audio-tak-salah-pm

    Kalau begitu mengapa pula diserahkan rakaman2 tersebut kepada Polis untuk disiasat? Susahlah kalau Ketua pun keliru!

    Terima kasih Tun.

    I see this today
    Though Tun Heads Pakatan Harapan
    DAP has a stronger voice in PH
    Probably PH lean on DAP for Financial Strenght

    The Melayu Malaysia Don’t want any to do with DAP
    They did not recognize DAP
    On they another hand they had a Failed UMNO under Najib
    These made the Malay Votes a Divided and a Confused Votes

    That does not invite DAP for a plan
    UMNO must change its foundation
    UMNO must be an update Party to form an update Govt
    Not the old ,perut buncit, asal bolih, banyak hutang form of Govt to win its Votes back
    UMNO must have a new image
    Young, Vibrant ,Out Going Govt

  14. sibotak Jan 14,2020 12:00 AM

    Gabungan Pakatan Harapan
    Ternyata lebih memperkukuhkan DAP dari Parti yg lain
    Malah mengalahkah Parti Tun sendiri
    Pakatan Harapan lebih menyandar akan infrastructue & kewangan DAP
    DAP sudah berbau PAP
    Mungkin sekarang mediang LKY agak tersenyum lebar

    Melayu Malaysia tolak DAP tapi menyandar pada Pakatan Harapan
    Nak ikut UMNO , UMNO Berkecamuk di Bulan Purnama
    Berasmara dana Rosmah & Najib
    UMNO tidak ada professional nya , malah masih berbudaya Kolot
    Berbudaya lama , masih terpekik pekik, sentiasa kesempitan kewangan
    Ini menjadi kenyataan dan Kegelisahan Melayu

    Di Telan DAP,Mati Emak,Di buang UMNO mati Bapak
    Maka UMNO perlu berubah untuk memenuhi Keinginan Melayu
    Keinginanan Melayu juga perlu berubah
    Tidak bolih macam dahulu, asik nak Menetek saja
    Asik nak peruntukan,asik asik nak Kerajaan bantu
    Di Dunia ini tidak ada Peruntukan
    Semua kena gali lobang. Bangun pagi cari rezki Halal masing masing
    Bukan asik nak ini , nak itu, pemutus buang. Jual sama Cina
    Ini kelaziman Melayu yg Melayu perlu berubah untuk Maju
    Jangan asik nak menetek Kerajaan
    Tetek Kerajaan pun dah Kendur,banyak Hutang
    Kerajaan pub Sesak dah

    Kerajaan UMNO yg saya madsudkan
    Perlu Berdikari
    Kita ada Hasil cuma kita tidak Bijak menghasilkannya
    Kita tidak bolih lagi macam dulu
    Bukan saja Orang Melayu. Kerajaan Melayu, Sultan Melayu pun jika nak bangunkan Negara sendiri perlu bantuan luar terutama dari China

    Nak tolong Orang Melayu
    Kena kasi mereka Susah
    Baru mereka akan Nilaikan & menghayati Kesenangan

    Sekarang Zaman , bukan zaman nak tunjukan Persembahan Persilatan
    Sekarang Zaman pertunjukan Ketenteraan tekan Butang
    Tekan sini , Gedebuu….uum Sana Meletup. Berkecai

    Malaysia perlu Dana untuk Keperluaan Ketenteraan
    Perlu Dana untuk membuat Senjata sendiri
    Maka saya sarankan
    Malaysia perlu National Service 2 Tahun sepenuh masa seperti Singapura
    Dapat mengajikan Kaki Tangan Kerajaan yg murah
    Dan anak muda yg berhidmat juga dapat di bimbing
    Tidak merayau menjadi Mad Ramppit, Mad Lepak, Mad Gian dan sebaginya
    National Service ada Baiknya untuk Negara
    Untuk Kerajaan juga untuk Belia yg tidak ada Haluannya

    Dengan Kerajaan yg Mantap dapat menghasil, mengutip dana dari Perniaga juga mengembangkan Ekonoi Malaysia dengan Cekap
    Kematapan Kewangan itu perlu
    Kerajaan perlu ada Ekonomi yg Mantap ,Suara Ketenteraan yg di segani

    It is the MIND-SET again. If there is nothing wrong with the Prime Minister of Malaysia, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, then there is nothing wrong with the members of the Cabinet. Logically, it follows that there is nothing wrong with YB LGE the FM. To date, the YB has kept a clean set of books to the delight of all and the anguish of his jealous rivals.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    According to robert kiyosaki recently, japan has the highest debt in the world follow by usa.

    How to make money from here, he will teach us when we subscribe to his teaching via online. Why? Because he is a japanese american with american wife. Obviously, he is one of the best investment guru whom we can learn from when we want to make money via full time, or part time, dont you think so when we have passion in finance?

    Is it haram in malaysia because i am not american or japanese?

    For Hajar and HBT456.

    You are both wrong. If you do not like the Finance Minister, you should just forgive him, sack him and ignore him. That’s the right sequence.

  20. HBT456 Jan 13,2020 6:16 PM

    Hajar can continue to hate me as chinese race in Malaysia.

    I choose to let Hajar do whatever she pleases with RULE OF LAW under TDM.

    Why?

    Hating someone produces negative feelings, and it will eventually blind our heart in repeating the same mistake again.

    If Lim Guan Eng and his family wanted to convert into Islam, by all means go a head.

    I wont gossip, curse or hate him and his family.

    Because that is his choice of religion as Malaysian.

    You want to do it, do it in a transparent manner, no need to hide or whatsoever.

    Why?

    Pilih kasih is not new.

    Whoever gets the majority votes, they will decide the direction of the economy.

    https://www.thestar.com.my/business/2020/01/13/malaysia039s-shadow-economy-21-of-gdp-guan-eng-says

    It would be great for Hajar not to recognize Mr Lim Guan Eng as Finance Minister since he is not Malay by race so that there will not be a shadow economy.

    Weak people revenge.
    Strong people forgive.
    Intelligent people ignore.

    Which one suits you?
    I choose forgive.

    Why?
    There is no point crying over spilled milk.

    You want your arch rival to use GREEDY CUNNING OLD FOX instead of OLD SHIT, izzit, mubarakchan?

    They are chosen to study in USA dll negara is not because they are the best students, and you know very well.

    Why keep spiking me and make your arch rival having the political reasons to strike you back, mubarakchan?

    Dulu, my late boss punya adik brainstorm the sales team with my female malay colleagues and myself.

    He was sharing with us his romantism with his wife whereby he is so romantik sampai darling, you berak, i gosok gigi sharing the same washroom 😅😅😅

    The malay ladies were exicited and happy then, but i put up my hand and said, i got an important call to make, and left the meeting.

    Why?

    Because i personally think as employee, we must not exploit company resources to do things that we like walaupun we are family members.

    Bak kata, jika tak boleh tahan with this kind of losser attitude and negative influences, then it is best to leave, will you disagree, mubarakchan?

    How local media and political parties want to exploit the news announced by MACC, it is up to them to goreng.

    Fake news?
    Alternative news?

    Bak kata, read at your own risk too when no one is verifying the content of the news.

    You can call it freedom of press in borderless world.

    To censor, tak boleh.
    To allow pun tak boleh.
    Habis, nak buat macam mana?

    I am not in the policy maker in committee council and the ministry in charged but what i can see is non-muslim voters are left only with 2 choices, either to vote PH (Pakatan Harapan) or MN (Muafakat Nasional) and Independents in Semenanjung Malaysia.

    If you are in Sabah and Sarawak, you can either vote PH or BN since that is not PAS constituencies after Merdeka.

    What is in your mind, i do not want to know, mubarakchan.

    Is it a blessing?
    Is it a lesson?

    To me, it is a blessing because i broke through race and religion barriers.
    To me, it is a lesson because the leaders of the political parties especially Malay political parties are still stuck in race and religion supremacy to stay relevant.

    Which way to go, i dont know.
    Whichever coalition garner the majority votes, they will name the perdana menteri to form his cabinet for the next 5 years.

    When Democratic Party Action (DAP) with roket logo changed to Party Tindakan Demokratik, what is that mean?

    Now, UMNO-PAS proposed Muafakat Nasional to replace Barisan Nasional, what can Malaysian Chinese Association do?

    I can be very racist too but i chosen not to be but I cannot live up to your Malay standard, Hajar, but you cannot stop me being a Chinese. You want to fight, go fight with UMNO and Puteri wanita.

    Whether you are happy or angry, i just do not want to get involve and make things even worst. Not being in the governement wont make me less Malaysian. Not fluent in Malay, but i still can find a job in private sector by contributing income revenue to the federal and state governments.

    Therefore, you want to cari pasal with anyone, by all means go ahead.

Sudikah Tun berkongsi pandangan tentang kesan teknologi baru ke atas industri automotif, pengangkutan awam, penerbangan, logistik dan konsesi lebuh raya. Adakah lebih baik jalan raya akan dipenuhi dengan tumbuhan hijau dan haiwan? Bagaimana pula dengan syarikat pengeluar minyak dan industri pembuatan yang lain? Ya, kereta terbang mungkin untuk negara maju dan export pembuatan akan meningkat. Apakah realiti AI dan kereta terbang akan lebih menutup banyak peluang kerja dan melahirkan beberapa orang kaya? Paperless, cashless dan satu hari tanpa pekerja cuma AI. Saya tak kesal dengan jutawan, cuma saya khuatir pembahagian harta dengan belas kasihan tak membantu sesiapa.

  30. SSLEE Jan 12,2020 10:53 AM

    Dear PM Tun Dr Mahathir,
    I think twinpeaks hit upon a brilliant idea, so please Tun bring back art programs as main programs or after-school programs or school-break programs. The arts can include Performing arts education (dance, drama, music, singing, music composer and song writing) literature, poetry and storytelling, Visual arts education in drawing, painting, craft, digital arts, media and photography.

    Art helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, inventiveness, creative problem-solving skills, build interest and confident.

    Visual arts teach learners about color, layout, perspective, and balance: all techniques that are necessary in presentations (visual, digital) of academic work.

    Arts experiences boost critical thinking, expanding the mind, teaching students to take the time to be more careful and thorough in how they observe the world from different angles. Art education connects students with their own culture as well as with the wider world.

    My wife spends a small fortune in sending our children for tuition on music, dance, drama, drawing, painting and photography. I think MOE can work with school, tuition center and private education center to formulate Art Programs as after-school or during school break programs so that children from all walk of life and ethnicity can have fun and learning Art together.

    Thank you

    Yours truly,
    SS LEE

    Correction: By the way, both proton and perodua cars are household brand cars preferred locally because they are the cheapest that we can get in malaysian market.

  33. HBT456 Jan 12,2020 9:51 AM

    By the way, both proton and perodua cars are not national branded cars.

    Until today, they are only qualified as national assembly cars after 30 years of heavy investment via petrol subsidy, meaning we dont produce these cars from top to bottom.

    We only assembly both imported and domestically sourced parts by investing heavily on the assembly plants and service sector by creating lower end jobs for rural malay states and capital cities of each state.

    Adakah langkah ini pembaziran kepada pengundi2 di kampung, khususnya, orang melayu yang beragama islam?

    Jika langkah macam ini pun kata hampeh, ciput dan haprak, go buy imported cars at higher price caused by heavier import duty AP to protect these 2 national assembly plants.

    Hard truth is always bitter to swallow due to the greed and fear factors.

    b. The Government to discard racism in politicking;
    c. The Government to reinforce multi-racial unity;
    d. The Government to enforce constructive welfare policies;
    e. The Government to strengthen cabinet members’ discipline in attending parliamentary meetings and discharge fiduciary duties in due course.

  36. Fariq Islam Jan 12,2020 9:26 AM

    Assalamualaikum, Tun.

    The problems causing Rakyat’ dissatisfaction now are –
    a. PH made a lot of promises that couldn’t be fulfilled.
    b. Rakyat continue to suffer high costs of living, with no much change in “real” disposable income, under the threat of unemployment rise.
    c. Race card is on the play, with politicians busy having war of tongue.

    Of course, Rakyat do not expect to have a big change overnight. But, Rakyat expect something better.

    Just for example, is it right for the Government to float fuel pump price?
    a. What will happen after pump price increase? Inflation comes. It’s too short-sighted of the Government to merely provide cash subsidy to B40, ignoring the consequential effect on overall economy!
    b. What DAP leader said during era of Najib? Malaysia is an oil-producing nation, how can the Government make Rakyat pay for high fuel pump price?
    c. The Government asks for Rakyat to pay for high fuel pump price and the leaders propose to but new luxury cars? What a joke…

    Salam Dearest YAB PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    I believe the only person in the PH Government who knows where we are heading is Tun.

    The rest (majority) look as if they have no idea what they are doing, especially those in the Cabinet. That’s why the current Government looks directionless (with all kinds of nonsense).

    Quite a number are really hopeless @ useless, and worse than the most hopeless Ministers / Deputies in the previous Government (sorry to say). They are just there to fill up the quotas for parties within the PH coalition.

    Just look at Mr. Lim Guan Eng. He believed he was addressing a group of idiots when he said that the reason Vellfire was selected (merely an option? hahaha…) as the official car for Ministers/ Deputy Ministers was because the appointed company did not have enough supply of PROTON PERDANA cars. Oh really? Such a stupid answer / reason from a Finance Minister.

    I read somewhere that the price for Vellfire is around RM 362,000.00. Wow! What an option!

    Why on earth did the Ministry give the contract to a company that has problem meeting the contract’s requirement (to supply PROTON PERDANA cars) in the first place? Dare to answer?

    https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2020/01/10/finance-minister-confirms-proton-perdana-not-vellfire-as-official-govt-cars/1826570

    “They did not have enough for the ministers and the deputy ministers. That is why we gave the option if there is not enough, you can choose others,” he told reporters, referring to Proton Perdana.

    Lim explained that the Japanese imports were merely given as an option after the company in which the government intended to appoint as a supplier indicated that it did not have sufficient stock of Proton Perdana cars.

    My turn to congratulate Tun for being handed the difficult task of an Education Minister. In any developed country, this is the most important ministry.

    If Tun were to ask ME what I would do to improve the educational standard at Malaysian schools, it is this. Spend the biggest budget on the teaching of Art and Music. Ensure that every primary and secondary kids excel in at least one artistic medium (e.g. oil painting or watercolor or acrylic painting. I myself am specialist in water color and wood sculpture from young age) and at least one musical instrument (e.g. violin, piano, saxophone, trumpet, guitar. Mine is the alto sax since secondary school). I mean EVERY school kid, whether they are artistic or musically inclined, or not.

    The difference between a good engineer and a brilliant engineer, or a good doctor and a brilliant doctor. The difference between a good soldier and a great soldier. Architects, pilots, scientists, etc. ANY field. The difference between a First Class Engineering Graduate from Cambridge or Stanford, and a Nobel Prize winning Engineer from an unknown university. There is one difference. The brilliants and Nobel Prize winners are all ALSO good artists and musicians.

    As a matter of curiosity, do you call your Dad in Hainan, ‘ AN OLD FART.’?

    You have not explained why you said ‘ A SECRET IS NO SECRET AT ALL.’

    You have not expressed remorse or regrets or apologise to all and sundry at your VULGARITY WHICH STINKS HIGH HEAVEN.

    We are all taken aback by your uncouth and barbaric behaviour in this distinguished Blog for Ladies and Gentlemen, not for animals of your kind, HBT630.

    NO VULGAR AND CURSED WORDS PLEASE, MUBARAK CHAN.

    No matter how angry, frustrated or mad at someone, i do not curse them.

    Assalammualaikum Tun,

    Congrats for being the Education Minister, once again.

    I have summarised a proposition of initiative that maybe undertaken in Malaysian school, based on Professor Sugata Mitra revolutionary ideas.

    As an overview, Mitra implemented “the school in the cloud” or self-organised-learning-eavironment. In the tech. term, “cloud” means “the internet servers”.

    I shared some links which you may be interested to read on.

    The first link below tell the story of a teacher, Sergio Juárez Correa in a Mexican school implemented the student-led-learning after he has been inspired by Prof. Mitra ideas. His result speak for itsef.

    https://www.wired.com/2013/10/free-thinkers/

    The second link below is Mitra’s TED talk video which won him a 1 million grant to pursue his idea.

    https://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_build_a_school_in_the_cloud?language=en

    The third link is the website of the SOLE schools around the world, connected to each other.

    https://www.theschoolinthecloud.org/partners/sole-central/

    Finally, the video of Jacob Barnet, which re-inforce Prof Mitra’s idea.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq-FOOQ1TpE

    After reading and watching the videos, I think you can figure it all out.

    Assalam Tun.

    Hi to HBT2.0 (or HBT630), seems the old 456 Malglish trait is long gone, retired eh or got assistants, or expanded with new branches? Whichever, your repugnant ways are still consistant.

    It’s totally unbecoming for anyone to correlate the twice imprisoned Anwar’s purported PM designate is everything to do with UMNO’s and/or Tun’s admission of guilt. Ridiculous thinking.

    Your old ‘half past six’ habits die hard, so is Anwar’s.

    It is up to you to twist and turn, sudin.
    By the end of the day, it is up to the political parties of the divides to do their parts. To jual goreng pisang atau kek, the baker decides.

    I have been too long in here, and whoever becomes the next perdana menteri, he / she is the boss of malaysia. Before general election, voters are your boss.

    Empty vessel makes most noises meaning news are noises, they are not facts.

    I am out because i am grateful for what i achieved as malaysian parents, not because i want to offend your race supremacy of unity, sudin. It takes 2 to tangle.

    If we are good, we will emerge stronger.
    If we are no good even when you help us with hak istimewa, i mean, tongkat, we will only become weaker and weaker, cannot live without tongkat, dont you think so? Which way to go, it is up to TDM and his cabinet to decide.

    Why?

    Because he is the boss of Malaysia and he does not need to minta permission from barisan nasional, or sudin.

    After this, can pakatan harapan wins out, itu tak mustahak.

    Why?

    Because no one knows what the ruling and opposition pacts will do in order to win votes of the federal constituencies brought down for few generations after merdeka to run for the post of perdana menteri.

    New Malaysia?
    Islamic Malaysia?

    Entah, what is in their mind.

    Tun taukan I ada kawan tauke besar public listed company.

    Years ago dia agak terkenal dengan sikap bagi kontrak pada company miliknya dan kroninya.

    I beli share company tersebut dan pergi AGM. Dia tentunya ramah nampak muka I, sebab dia memang kenal I sebelum jadi tauke besar.

    He said to me, I suka tolong Melayu. I jawab, tolong Melayu? Melayu mana you tolong? You.

    Esoknya dia ambil anak I kerja hahaha

    I ini jarang marah unless you really bad. Jagalah I bagi you sebijik.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Terima kasih kerana memenuhi hajat kami supaya Tun kembali menjadi Menteri Pendidikan, walaupun mungkin sementara. Saya ingin memberi cadangan tentang sistem Pendidikan negara kita.

    Saya berpendapat sistem Pendidikan negara kita terlalu berpecah mengikut kaum. Kita ada sekolah atau universiti yang kebanyakkanya terdiri dari satu kaum sahaja. Contohnya sekolah jenis kebangsaan terdiri majoriti adalah kaum cina atau india. Sekolah kebangsaan majoritinya adalah kaum Melayu. Demikian jugalah di peringkat universiti, universiti awam terdiri dari kaum Melayu, manakala universiti swasta adalah kaum bukan Melayu. Bahasa penghantaran yang digunakan juga berlainan. Bukankah kita ada Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Rasmi dan Kebangsaan? Tetapi kita lihat di sekolah jenis kebangsaan menggunakan bahasa lain dari Bahasa Kebangsaan. Demikian juga di universiti swasta, menggunakan Bahasa Inggeris sebagai bahasa penghantaran.

    Kalau dibandingkan sistem pendidikan seluruh dunia, hanya di Malaysia sistem pendidikannya berpecah mengikut kaum, dan bahasa penghantarannya berbeza-beza.

    Kemudian, apabila pelajar-pelajar ini tamat di peringkat universiti, mereka perlu pula berintergrasi dengan masyarakat.

    Pada tahun baru lepas, saya sempat bercuti di Genting. Saya terjumpa sebuah keluarga berlima Indonesia berbangsa cina. Rupa dan pakaian mereka seperti cina Malaysia. Tetapi yang buat saya terkejut, mereka berbahasa Indonesia dalam berkata sesama ahli keuarga. Saya difahamkan di Indonesia, orang cina bukan sahaja berbahasa Indonesia, tetapi mereka juga mempunyai nama Indonesia. Saya kata dalam hati, Indonesia benar-benar telah wujudkan satu ‘bangsa Indonesia’. Memang layaklah mereka mendapat persamaan hak, sebab mereka dianggap satu bangsa iaitu bangsa Indonesia.

    Saya pernah sekolah di Amerika Syarikat, semua bangsa belajer di sekolah yang sama, menggunakan bahasa yang sama. Tidak kira orang Amerika Itali, Perancis, Orang berkulit hitam, semua menggunakan bahasa Amerika dan nama mereka pun nama orang Amerika.

    Jadi, negara di atas berjaya membuat rakyat mereka ‘race blind’ disebabkan mereka di sekolah yang sama, menggunakan bahasa yang sama, bahkan nama mereka juga nama yang orang tahu nama berasal dari negara tersebut.

    Ini berbeza dengan Malaysia. Mereka mahukan persamaan hak, tetapi bahasa Malaysia pun tungang langang, mahukan sekolah sendiri, universiti sendiri, nama sendiri, budaya sendiri. Belajar tiga muka surat jawi pun riuh satu negara! Tetapi mahu persamaan hak, ngaku pula rakyat Malaysia.

    Jika satu sistem pendidikan untuk semua kaum, semua kaum perlu korbankan sekolah universiti masing-masing. Kata Tun, jika semua kaum tidak berpuas hati, maka adil lah cara ini.

    Kita perlu reform sistem pendidikan negara, tetapi tiada kaum yang sukakan perubahan yang menyebabkan kaum tersebut kehilangan identiti kaum tersebut. Inilah harga ‘bangsa Malaysia’.

    Saya rasa Tun juga tidak mampu laksanakan ini seorang diri. Semua stakeholders perlu bersetuju. Mungkin kajian menyeluruh perlu dilakukan kesan satu sistem pendidikan negara untuk semua kaum di negara ini.

    Selagi setiap bangsa mahu belajar berasingan, maka impian ‘bangsa Malaysia’ akan kekal sebagai impian.

  50. Sri Sense Jan 11,2020 10:41 AM

    Good morning Tun

    Tahniah on your new post. I think its best Tun bawa Tok Pa in. Kerana dia pernah jadi Minister dalam ministry of education. Memanglah dia dulu orang UMNO, Tun pun sama juga. Advisable not to over over kutuk the old regime.

    Orang2 baru dalam Bersatu most of them tiada pengalaman dalam politik dan mentadbir negara. Begitu juga team Tun dalam PH, mereka bekas pembangkang kerja mereka masih nak membangkang dan tunjuk pandai. They either perasan they represent semua kaum Cina Malaysia or they perasan all rakyat Malaysia nak boss mereka naik jadi PM or they perasan jejaka idaman rakyat Malaysia. A lot of perasan diri going on dalam PH hingga apa jadi kat rakyat luar sana dah tak perasan.

    Not to mention Edge for example, dulu I memang peminat Edge kerana ada cerita business, stockmarkets dalamnya. Now nak cari cerita business online, kena kuak kuak, mana taknya, wall penuh dengan SRC, IMDB. Hellooo ini aktiviti naikkan stockmarket atau jatuhkan stockmarket? Buat I confuse so baikklah I baca IBs news or theSun lebih mudah.

    I kalau free suka jalan baca apa bloggers tulis, I hampir nak tergelak kerana ada yang keluarkan nama2 bakal Minister of Education, seperti anak Rais Yatim, anak Sanusi Junid dan ada juga nak Secretary LKS yang budak Melayu dinobatkan jadi Minister. Not to mention anak RPK suggest DSAI, I think she already meluat tengok penggolakkan dalam PH.

    Itu cerita bloggers yang gemar cerita hal ehwal semasa politik, my wordpress tidaklah Tun sebab I bukan orang politik, I tidak begitu berminat demgan politik, I cuma minat stock market naik, stocks I miliki naik dan I boleh buat duit dengan cari makan dalam bursa Malaysia. Pretty sure ramai rakyat Malaysia cuma minat nak cari makan tanggung keluarga.

    Dear PM Tun Dr Mahathir,

    I am a returning Malaysian who relocated to Sabah to semi-retire after working abroad for 19 years as an educator with the education ministry of a country. In most part of my tenure as an educator, I was both a classroom teacher as well as a head of department. Education has a special place in my heart and for the past few months, I have been following the various educational news, development and issues tha nation faced. Frankly, the state of education in Malaysia is in need of review or overhaul so young Malaysians are future-ready. We need educational policies that are visionary, purposeful, strategic and relevant so our young is equipped to face a VUCA world. If Tun has thoughts of forming a core think-tank team to review the existing educational policies or/and to brainstorm policies that are suited for the 21st century, I would like to contribute my ideas and rich experience so as to empower and benefit young Malaysians. This is my way of giving back to Malaysia.

    I can be reached via the email that I have registered under your blog. I really look forward to getting a favourable reply Sir. Thank you.

  53. SSLEE Jan 10,2020 8:01 PM

    Dear PM Tun Dr Mahathir,
    I am deeply saddened, disturbed and alarmed by what I read in Tun’s blog comments and wonder whether Tun feels the same?

    http://www.bernama.com/en/news.php?id=1804655
    “To become a developed country, we wanted to overcome nine challenges under Vision 2020 — fostering a united country, a society with a liberated spirit, a democratic society, a moral and ethical society, a liberal society, a scientific and progressive society, a caring society, an economically just society, and a prosperous society.

    “That was our aim and if we had achieved these nine objectives, apart from progress in other areas like education, technology, social equity and the like, then we would have been considered a developed country,” he said.
    Dr Mahathir hoped that the people would understand the challenges outlined under Vision 2020.

    Judging by what were expressed by many Tun’s blog commentators, we are far from achieving these nine objective. The question now is why Malaysians had regressed into their own silo with closed minded and refuse to see things beyond their own identity of race, religion and stereotyping?

    Malaysia had been and will always be a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, multi-cultural and multi-lingual nation. All ethnic groups have shed their blood, toiled and sacrificed for this nation of ours and build this nation to what it is today. Let no one ever take that away from any of us or claim exclusively Malaysia only belongs to particular ethnic group. For the love of our nation we should all learn to live together and respect each other the sooner the better for all of us.

    Malaysia is blessed with the strength of its diversity and with diversity Malaysia is able to develop from post-colonial agriculture/commodities laid-back economy to become the world 35th largest economy in the world with a high density of diverse knowledge-based industries and adoption of cutting edge technology for manufacturing, digital economy and trading with every nations in the world because of our multi-ethnic, multi-religious, multi-cultural and multi-lingual strength. According to the Global Competitiveness Report 2018, the Malaysian economy is the 25th most competitive country in the world in the period of 2018–19. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Malaysia

    Tun plays a pivotal role in turning our economy development into a newly industrialized nation during Tun’s first premiership from 1981-2003. For Tun’s second premiership, I welcome news that Tun is taking up the addition duty as acting Education Minister.

    https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/08/10/daim-education-ministrys-misplaced-priorities-reason-malaysia-lagging-in-in/1779489
    As a case in point, Daim highlighted again the loophole allowing well-to-do Malays to gain limited public scholarships under Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) and entry into Mara Junior Science College (MRSM) at the expense of poorer Bumiputera, including both urban and rural poor and from indigenous groups.
    He claimed many well-off Bumiputera were abusing the policies to enrich themselves.
    “We have been robbing the poor to further uplift those who do not deserve the support, and this widening of the education and income gap must come to an end,” he said.
    He noted that some Bumiputera even resort to racial fear-mongering to maintain their perks.
    “The fearmongering is only to encourage and continue this abuse. It’s time to stop the ‘them versus us’ rhetoric,” he said.

    https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2019/08/05/face-the-truth-we-are-not-out-of-the-woods-warns-daim
    “Let us not be under any illusions. We are still far from being out of the woods. We are far from being ready for the changes happening around us. We are far from being a united people. We are far from being able to compete at the global level. We are far from being able to embrace differences and changes. And underpinning all of this unpreparedness is education.”

    “To participate in IR4, we must go through a knowledge-based economy and here Malaysia has failed because the government, through the Ministry of Education, has not got its priorities right. The Education Ministry must not fail our nation.

    “If we do not first get education right, all these other challenges will suddenly become insurmountable. To borrow a quote from Alvin Toffler: “The illiterate of the 21st Century are not those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” I would like to add to this by saying, “not only those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn, but also those who refuse to learn.” said Daim.

    Tun Daim speak the truth and the truth hurt deeply but shall set us free. Our education had failed to empower Malaysians with the ability to think critically, logically, wisely and to make their own informed decisions, no matter the situation. Our education failed miserably to produce new generation of enlightening political leaders, spiritual leaders and great thinkers as our education is more on indoctrination of mind rather than liberation of the mind and many learned people are so closed minded that they refuse to listen, to think critically, to learn, to unlearn and relearn.

    It is my hope Tun as acting Education Minister will have the political will and courage not to placate but to do what needed to be done for real changes in Education Policy as articulated by Tun Daim. An education that empowered Malaysians with critical thinking and open minded and prepared Malaysians for knowledge based economy and IR 4.0/5.0. An education that fostering a united country, a society with a liberated spirit, a democratic society, a moral and ethical society, a liberal society, a scientific and progressive society, a caring society, an economically just society, and a prosperous society.

    You did what you suppose to do
    To bring down Najib kleptocratic Government
    That’s yr good intention and you have done it successfully

    Behind a successful man is a woman
    Same as behind a failed man is also a woman
    Najib is a failed man behind Rosmah Mansor
    To me Najib is quite OK
    He is capable but his woman failed him
    Though I personally don’t know Rosmah
    But One can See IF One is not Blind

    Today, you have build Pakatan Harapan
    With the coalition of a few Party
    The fact Malaysia with Majority Melayu
    Did not want Chinese to be in place
    As much we can see the character of HBT of what he is up to
    No doubt I would say Lim Guan Eng is also a Good Leader
    He could be better if he reverts so can he understands the need of Malaysia

    My opinion UMNO should made a stronger come back
    With professional Malay/ Muslim Leadership
    UMNO with NO Najib
    Tun and ex UMNO made a comes back to UMNO
    UMNO & PAS should from together as One
    From this One, we will select the Leader
    It’s a Fresh start

    It’s all Yes Sir of Pakatan Harapan Coalition as for now, for today
    Everyone is obeying showing their decency
    But wait Tun. Their head will be Bigger once they have the influence
    Don’t be Cheated, Tun
    Do you not see thy neighbor?
    Do you not realize HBT directions today?

    Assalam Tun.

    Well said Tun, but only to those with rational thinking.

    The opposition will not admit the truth, else they will disappear altogether, obliterated!

    Neither will those impatient and ignorant Anwar supporters/followers, they will not stop trying to create waves of disenchantment until Anwar becomes PM, which I dearly hope will never happen. NOT FIT!

    I already said, it is more appropriate, safer and better off to get someone who is not jailed to be the perdana menteri.

    If dsai become the next perdana menteri approved by tdm, then, are tdm and umno baru supreme council admitted their wrong doings and sin in causing him landed in jail twice via syariah sodomy law?

    I am not against dsai but i think he must give up his ambition to be the perdana menteri of Malaysia.

    Perhaps, he can be the minister mentor of Pakatan Harapan?

    Can his wife be the female perdana menteri, that is a different story.

    I am out for this game, and i do not want to get involve anymore.

    Which way to go, it is up to the political parties of the divide to compete themselves to get elected in the next general election.

    Gong Xi Fa Cai. and may all your wishes are blessed in the year of Rat.
