Ku Li - Income Gap Widen, Need to Rethink Economic Policies

Income inequality has widened in Malaysia and is now a problem across all races.

...“if ownership was de-racialised or balanced at the top, economic justice would follow is no longer a valid premise for the future.”

“Income inequality in Malaysia has widened (and) is no longer a problem between races; it crosses the racial divide and it is a problem of the majority of Malaysians who feel the pressure of inflation in almost every essential aspects of their lives. This is the most serious challenge we face,”

... if the current administration’s struggles with the budget deficit was a “result of wastage, corruption and extravagance in the use of public funds, then the solution to the problem should not be passed on to the public.”

“What is needed is a re-examination of the management of the country’s finances before... any change in the policy of subsidies be implemented, as the consequences would have a life-changing impact on the livelihood of the people.”

Leaders Chasing Titles!

... leaders too have increasingly started to chase titles, which only "revives a feudal system".
"If it was announced that everyone who wanted to get the title 'datuk' should go to the palace tomorrow, I believe ... leaders will be jostling for a spot at the gates..."
Mohamad Sabu,
PAS Deputy President.

P/S: Similarily and very funny, many non-Malays at normal situation seem too taboo to put on the songkok or to wear the baju Melayu but have no problem to wear one when they were called upon to receive a title from the palace!... Kah..kah..kah..

Negara Kebajikan?

Negara Kebajikan ini adalah agenda politik yang merangkumi ekonomi. Kebajikan yang dimaksudkan ini wajiblah kebajikan untuk anak semua bangsa. Kebajikan ini adalah kebajikan yang akan melintasi garis agama dan bangsa. Kebajikan ini pastilah kabajikkan untuk majoriti warga. Bukan kebajikan untuk kaum kerabat dan kroni.

Why Must We Idolize Politicians!

And don't idolize anyone especially politicians
(It's better to idolize our parents, and it's in the teaching of all our religions - Ed).

Once you idolized someone, you lose judgement.
You will find it hard to accept that your idol can make mistakes.
Step away and see the big picture.

Change Your Car If It Doesn't Serve You!

A political party is just like our car, a mere vehicle.
If it works, keep it.
If it breaks down, change it.
Make it work for us.
Don’t become a slave of our vehicle.

Ini Macam Pun Ada (2)

A jilted wife's desire to have a quick affair with a teenager was shortlived when religious authorities raided her home and found the boy naked ... in the kitchen, Sinar Harian reported.

The newspaper said the 21-year-old mother of one became furious when she found out that her husband had married another woman without her consent, prompting her to bring the teenager home when the man was away.

Religious authorities conducting an operation against khalwat raided her Terengganu home at 2.25am to find the woman fully clothed and the naked 19-year-old hiding in the kitchen.

String of A's May Look Impressive But Not Be So In Real Life!

by Mansor Putih,

write from personal experience about the issue of the top scorers at SPM or STPM. On paper, this achievement may look impressive. But in real life, it may not be so.

We have all seen over the years how those who had scored a string of A’s in their SPM and STPM examinations had not excelled beyond recognition.

There have been many among them who had been sent abroad, yet, there is no one among them who had created a stir when they were at those universities abroad, or when they returned to the country to assume posts. So few were admitted into the prestigious Ivy League and Oxbridge universities in the US and UK respectively.

If some of them had gained admission, surely, it could be considered to be an achievement. But so far not many or none among the present group of students who have got the string of A’s had bothered to even apply for admission into such universities.

If they had, and if their application for scholarship was rejected then surely, there is cause for alarm. But the truth is that these top scorers have only pieces of paper to show the A’s they got for the dozen or so subjects.

Yet, many of them can’t speak fluently in English or Bahasa Melayu. They could get the answers right, but many may not know what they are writing about.

If they really wanted to excel, then they should on their own seek admission into prestigious universities, where their qualification and personal achievements will be verified and recognised.

But all of them just want to study abroad without caring which university it is.

I did not possess an impressive academic record but I still managed to gain admission into an Ivy League university in New York City. The university was impressed with my academic achievements and extracurricular activities and other personal interests and hobbies. Its officials also took into consideration all these things other than the academic qualification I had then.

Yet, Mara officials still chose to reject my application for a scholarship. I had to work for a year, before I was given a study loan the following year after an appeal.
