TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

RASUAH POLITIK 311

1) Di waktu kita pinda perlembagaan Umno supaya sesiapa yang ingin bertanding jawatan Presiden perlu mendapat pencalonan 30% daripada bahagian atau 60 bahagian, tujuan kita ialah untuk jawatan itu tidak ditandingi oleh orang yang tidak serius dan juga supaya wang tidak dapat disogok kepada jumlah bahagian yang begitu banyak. 2) Syarat ini dipercayai tidak akan ...

MENGAJAR SAINS DAN MATEMATIK DALAM BAHASA INGGERIS 656

1. Saya mengaku bertanggungjawab berkenaan mengajar Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris. Kerana itu ramai yang menuduh saya tidak bersemangat kebangsaan Melayu, tidak utamakan bahasa saya. 2. Izinkan saya membuat sedikit penjelasan sebelum saya dihukum. 3. Pendapat saya ialah mereka yang bersemangat kebangsaan Melayu tidak harus utamakan hanya penguasaan bahasa ibunda sahaja tetapi juga melihat ...

WHITHER MALAYSIA 649

1. I am very touched by the response to my article “The Country We Love” (July 27, 2008). We may have our differences, we may be of different races but it seems that we all love this country. 2. I have been abroad hundreds of times but I never fail to look forward to returning home. ...

CRONYISM AND THE NEP 609

1. When the New Economic Policy began to show some results in the early eighties, the Western Press and local opponents of the Government began to talk about cronyism. Whoever succeeded in a developing country like Malaysia, did so because they were the chosen favourites of the Government, particularly the head of the Government. 2. ...

A CENTURY OLD SCHOOL 395

1. I came back from a holiday in Croatia to attend the centenary celebration of my alma mater, Kolej Sultan Abdul Hamid or Sultan Abdul Hamid College recently. 2. It was a sentimental occasion. Seeing the old school, quite unchanged since I was admitted into Primary I way back in 1932 brought back many sweet/sad ...

STRANGE POLITICS 498

Something strange is happening in Malaysian politics. Suddenly there is a lot of talk about cooperation and even merger between UMNO and PAS. Friendly and unfamiliar sounds are being heard from all sides. I wonder whether it is a sudden concern about the need for Malay unity or it is the realisation that both PAS ...

BLAIR AND THE CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE 477

I feel sad that after a very well attended Press Conference (see picture) chaired by me as Chairman of the Kuala Lumpur Perdana Global Peace Organisation to condemn the visit of the war criminal Tony Blair, almost nothing has appeared in the print and electronic media in this country. It looks as if Malaysia supports ...

PULAU BATU PUTIH AND TERRITORIAL WATERS 379

(Versi Bahasa Malaysia di akhir artikel ini) 1. We had expected the International Court of Justice to declare that Pulau Batu Putih is ours, together with South Ledge and Middle Rocks. 2. But the decision of the Court left me flabbergasted. On the one hand Pulau Batu Putih which is nearer Malaysia and very much ...

ANTI-CORRUPTION 348

1. ACA, or Anti-Corruption Agency is now willing to investigate possible corruption based on newspaper reports. 2. It is now doing just that with regard to the huge bill for maintenance of Proton Perdana official cars used by the Terengganu Government. 3. This has prompted the Terengganu Menteri Besar to question why the very costly ...

THE COUNTRY WE LOVE 596

1. When we became independent in 1957 nobody gave us much of a chance to make any progress beyond what had been achieved under the British. 2. I myself at that time thought that the only difference independence would make would be Malaysians would take over the administration of the country from the British. Nothing ...
