Keng Yaik Said, "Don't Bullshit The Rakyat...!"


At the opening of a conference after all the  pleasantries, Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik  read a line which said that a programme his ministry had implemented had been received well by the rakyat. As soon as he finished the sentence, he blurted out the word "bullshit" which shocked the audience. 

He looked at senior ministry officials and asked "Who vetted this speech?" There was silence. He said, "I disagree; let's tell the truth and not put words into the rakyat's mouth."

P/S: I believe the late Tun Dr.LKY was the only head of a party in BN who was not severely ridiculed by the rakyat. This speak volume of his calibre and integrity. He might have regretted chosen a successor who seem to have destroyed PGRM he built up over a long period of his stewardship.

Long Live The Fools...!

Can't agree much with the edited parts of this interesting article.
Edited from Tay Tian Yan's article.

Many think of themselves as being smart. Few would want to be seen as fools. 

Everyone wants to act smart for the sake of power, interests and influences; no one would act foolish because you are bound to lose in real-world if you do. 

Smart people know not how to draw a line between personal gains and public welfare, while a fool knows the boundaries between what is public and what if private. 

P/S: Just because they think they are smart people, they think the world owe them all and they can just wallop anything they want. Fools are looked upon as their servants and be humiliated.

Smart people will not mind sacrificing their beliefs and public well-being for their own gains, while a fool cares only about the nation and community, often at the expanse of their personal interests. 

The problem is, this world was created by a bunch of fools who cared not their own gains. They had dreams and aspirations, all geared towards the well-being of their communities and the world. 

Just because there are too many smart, calculative people around, dreams and aspirations have been smothered. Our environment will be a much better place if we have more fools than smart people.

Future Impossible Tense...?



DAP Delegates Do Not Walk The Talk...!

All eight DAP Malay leaders lose badly in CEC polls

GEORGE TOWN: All eight Malay DAP leaders who contested for central executive committee (CEC) posts lost badly at 16th DAP Congress here.

The results show that the party, dominated by the Chinese, does not make room for Malay candidates including Zairil Khir Johari who served as political secretary to DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng. Zairil only received 305 votes while his boss, Lim garnered 1,576 votes. 

A total of 1,823 delegates voted to choose 20 DAP leaders for the 2012-2015 term. The other Malay candidates who lost were Penang DAP committee member Zulkifli Mohd Noor (216 votes), Senator Ariffin SM Omar (748), Johor DAP vice-chairman Ahmad Ton (347 votes), Pahang DAP deputy chairman Tengku Zulpuri Shah Raja Puji (121), Desa Manjung DAP branch chairman Solaiman Op Syed Ibrahim (98), Roseli Abdul Ghani (39) and Harun Ahmad (28).

Zulkifli Mohd Noor, one of the DAP Malay candidates said he fought for 25 years for the Malays to be elected as CEC members but failed. "When we say 'Malaysian Malaysia,' we must represent all religions, all races...balance. The message I conveyed did not reached the grassroots. They are still choosing leaders based on race," he told Bernama.

He said that the election was also not based on ability and experience of the candidates in fighting for the party.

"There is no change. The results is a setback for Malay candidates. Perhaps the top leaders who contested want to take care of their own interests, not the party's interests." - BERNAMA

P/S: Disappointed with the delegates who did not take the opportunity to put the thing right. As expected The Star, MCA controlled news organ has blasted it first salvo with this report. Soon that infamous big-mouth 'crazy' fellow will make his present with his crazy remarks which is really hurting, perhaps not you but me and all those who do not agree with the way you voted in your leaders.

DAP delegates, you have given away the bullets for 'these people' to shoot at you and your partners in PR and we the non-ketuanan. Surely a few thousand votes will swing back to the other side, then bye bye Putrajaya.

It does not matter whether the above report is correct or distorted, the reality is DAP's delegates themselves are practicing their kind of 'ketuanan' and arrogance.  

Do not blast the other side of their arrogance, ketuanan, 1Malaysia blah..blah..blah when you are also practicing such behaviour! What Middle Malaysia when you cannot accommodate others who you arrogantly think you are superior than them thus you think you have the right to monopolies everything.

Please walk the talk that you are a multiracial party and practicing Middle Malaysia..!  Do not say the other side is racist when you also have it.

Interesting Story About Nutmeg - Buah Pala

Nutmeg: A Spice with a Secret That Isn’t So Nice

Nutmeg: A Spice with a Secret That Isn’t So NiceIt’s a spice whose aroma evokes warm memories of the holidays for many — baked into pumpkin pies, kneaded into sausages and sprinkled atop mugs of eggnog. It has a pungent, earthy and slightly sweet taste, making it versatile for use in a variety of foods and beverages. You can find it just about anywhere these days and especially this time of year. But that wasn’t always the case, as Allison Aubrey of NPR recently reminded us.

Until the 18th and 19th centuries, nutmeg was a lot harder to come by. Indigenous to the Banda islands, part of the Moluccas (the Spice Islands) of Indonesia, this was also once the only place in the world that nutmeg grew. And once European spice traders learned of its existence, they began to battle for exclusive rights to the spice.

In the early 17th century, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) seized the islands from the Portuguese and moved to monopolize the trade with what Oliver Thring, writing for the Guardian, described as “paranoid brutality, banning the export of the trees, drenching every nutmeg in lime before shipping to render it infertile, and imposing the death penalty on anyone suspected of stealing, growing or selling nutmegs elsewhere.” The Dutch, in fact, perpetrated a massacre.

When some native islanders dared protest, the head of the VOC “ordered the systematic quartering and beheading of every Bandanese male over the age of 15. The population of the Banda islands was around 15,000 when the VOC arrived. 15 years later, it was 600.” An entire population decimated, and for what? A bit of flavoring for food?

Nutmeg wasn’t just a spice, though. It was also used as an incense as well as a medicine that was supposed to cure stomach ailments, headaches and fever. It was even thought to ward off plague. At one point in the 1300s, a pound of nutmeg cost seven fattened oxen.

At any rate, the Dutch clearly wanted the monopoly on nutmeg, which it just about had but for one nutmeg-producing island held by the British, called Run. After decades of skirmishes, the two companies agreed to a swap in the mid-17th century. In handing over Run to the Dutch, the British got a trading post out west that we now know as Manhattan.

In 1769, a French horticulturist named Pierre Poivre managed to smuggle some nutmeg from the Banda islands to Mauritius, ending the Dutch monopoly at last. The British East India Company brought the tree to Penang, Singapore, India, the West Indies and Grenada, which is now the second largest producer of nutmeg.

What people do for food — or, I should say, what people do to make money on food. To a degree, the Dutch East India Company is not unlike today’s food corporations, whose pursuit of profits comes at considerable cost to people and planet. But the story of nutmeg has come a long way. As sordid as it once was, today there’s a nostalgia for nutmeg as a spice for the holidays, and we might as well enjoy it.

Aduh....Jatuh Lagi....Nape...?

Malaysia edging to bottom in maths and science, survey shows

December 12, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 12 ― Malaysian students trail their global peers in mathematics and science tests, according to the results of two international benchmarking studies released yesterday, with secondary schoolers also showing a decline from their predecessors.
 
Malaysians scored an average 440 points in mathematics in Form Two ― the equivalent to eighth grade worldwide ― in the latest Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011, lagging behind Korea, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong and Japan, which occupied the top five spots worldwide.
Malaysian 14-year-olds performed worse than their counterparts in Israel who chalked up 516 points, Lithuania (502) and Lebanon (449), but beat neighbouring Thailand, which scored 427 points on tests by a narrow margin.

In science, Malaysians scored 426 points, tying with Syria and just pipping Palestine, Georgia and Oman, which totted up 420 points each in the tests.They were bested by top scorer Singapore (590), Chinese Taipei (564), Korea (560), Japan (558), Israel (516), Kazakhstan (490) and Thailand (451). 

The average score in the TIMSS is benchmarked at 500 points, with countries scoring above that considered to have improved their performance in the two subjects while those falling below that mark are regarded as underperformers.

TIMSS is a four-year global assessment of the mathematics and science knowledge of fourth and eighth graders worldwide, or Standard Four and Form Two according to Malaysia’s education system.

However, Malaysian students were graded only at the secondary level in the survey.

The TIMSS showed that Malaysia has consistently underperformed over the past three assessments in the two subjects considered necessary in the country’s race to break into the ranks of high-income nations.

In 2007, the average Malaysian 14-year-old scored 474 points in mathematics and 471 points in science in the TIMSS survey. And in 1999, the average score for mathematics stood at 519 points and 492 points for science. 

Education lobbyists, including the Parent Action Group for Education (PAGE), have blamed the government’s flip-flopping education policies ― especially in the teaching of mathematics and science ― for the drop in education standards.

The government recently launched the National Education Blueprint 2013-2025 with the aim to be in the top third of the Programme For International Student Assessment (PISA) test within the next 13 years.

The country is currently ranked in the bottom third. But in its recent Budget 2013, the Barison Nasional (BN) government also slashed its education allocation from RM50 billion in the last budget, to RM38.7 billion, raising doubts about the ability of the educational blueprint in addressing the nation’s flagging education standards. 

Analysts have also suggested that Malaysia’s aim of boosting its education standards through an ambitious overhaul of the national school system will not happen as long as politicians continue to be involved in drawing up its policies.

"Dallas' J.R. (my most hated villian but loved) Is Dead

Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing) is dead 

Larry Hagman, who created one of American television's most supreme villains in the conniving, amoral oilman J.R. Ewing of "Dallas," died on Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported. He was 81.

Hagman died at a Dallas hospital of complications from his battle with throat cancer, the newspaper said, quoting a statement from his family. He had suffered from liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver in the 1990s after decades of drinking.

Hagman's mother was stage and movie star Mary Martin and he became a star himself in 1965 on "I Dream of Jeannie," a popular television sitcom in which he played Major Anthony Nelson, an astronaut who discovers a beautiful genie in a bottle.

"Dallas," which made its premiere on the CBS network in 1978, made Hagman a superstar. The show quickly became one of the network's top-rated programs, built an international following and inspired a spin-off, imitators and a revival in 2012.

R.I.P Mr. Hagman.

Racism Is A Devil - Fifa Boss


GENEVA, Nov 21 ― FIFA president Sepp Blatter has described racism in football as “a devil.”

In an interview with the London Evening Standard yesterday, he again underlined his stance on racism, saying a simple handshake was not enough.

“What you can do by a handshake is try to make peace. You cannot eradicate racism by a handshake. To eradicate this devil is an educational problem. The problem is, if the school is not educating, if the family is no longer educating, sport must educate. But sport cannot do everything.”

Chelsea captain John Terry was given a four-match ban by the FA for racially insulting Queen Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand although he was cleared of racism in the courts in July after the saga had dragged on for a year. Blatter said the whole process had taken too long.

“The Terry affair should have been handled much quicker. Such matters should be dealt with as soon as possible, especially when players are concerned. Our sports authorities should deal with these matters directly. If afterwards the political authorities also intervene because they think it a very important case, that is up to them.”

“But to wait until the political authorities intervene and then take a decision on the sporting side, this is not the right procedure.”

Paradoks Perkauman Di Restoran Mamak

oleh Zulhabri Supian
 
... restoran mamak menyerlahkan sisi negatif masyarakat kita yang terpecah belah mengikut bangsa dan juga bahasa percakapan. Meskipun kemajmukan Malaysia dapat dilihat di mamak, namun sangat menyedihkan tiada interaksi bermakna di kalangan bangsa yang berbeza. Jika di satu meja terdiri dari pelbagai bangsa, seringkali pandangan-pandangan yang terlihat hairan akan kelihatan.

Paradoks “kemajmukan” di mamak yang sangat menghiris adalah kebiasaan untuk mengutuk bangsa lain walaupun jarak meja di antara satu sama lain tidak terlalu jauh. Perkauman di meja makan yang sering dipraktikkan di rumah keluarga dipindahkan ke meja makan mamak. Restoran mamak berubah menjadi wahana penyebaran kebencian dan prejudis ala Malaysia iaitu secara aman tanpa pergaduhan dan pertumpahan darah...

P/S: Satu pandangan dari pemerhatian penulis yang tidak dapat dinafikan.

The Cinakui...!

Edited from here.
.....
This brings us back to the subject of stereotyping all Chinese as being racist, which I believe is more cultural than actual racism. 

To the Chinese, anything they find repulsive will constitute name-calling, which bring us to Chinese against Chinese.

Insults swirl as Hong Kong Chinese called mainland Chinese locusts and complained that mainland tourists bring their less-than-refined social habits and women on the verge of childbirth into the territory. 

The Hong Kongers only want their bulging wallets but not their fetishistic bad manners.

The common Chinese term for anyone not Chinese is kui,  the lesser beings to the Chinese eyes. No other races are spared from the kui, including the kwailos that once ruled Hong Kong from 1841 to 1997 and one that have taught social finesse to the Hong Kong Chinese, who now feel, theirs, are of superior culture than the nouveau riche mainland Chinese.
 
P/S: What to deny when it's a fact! The most interesting part is the Chinese fight Chinese....

Saya Rakyat Marhaen Biasa

Dipetik dari nukilan Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin
 
"Setiap kita mengetahui siapakah diri kita. Selepas Allah Yang Maha Tahu segalanya, insan itu sendirilah yang paling tahu tentang dirinya. Segala penampilan, pujian, gelaran dan pangkat yang manusia berikan tidaklah semestinya sama dengan hakikat sebenar diri yang berkaitan itu di sisi Allah Yang Maha Mengetahui."

"Betapa ramai orang yang dipuji dengan pelbagai pujian, dia sendiri pun tahu dia bahawa dia bukan layak dengan segala ungkapan itu. Betapa banyak orang yang dianggap tiada nilai ataupun rendah kedudukannya, dia di sisi Allah jauh lebih baik dari mereka yang banyak dipuji dan dipuja."

"Justeru, orang yang mempunyai gelaran kebesaran, belum tentu lebih baik di sisi Allah dibanding rakyat marhaen biasa. Ustaz yang berceramah di depan majlis, belum tentu lebih disayangi Allah dari mereka yang duduk di bawah mendengar ceramahnya. Bahkan mungkin yang berceramah itu Allah benci disebabkan kesombongan, riak dan ‘gila dunia' yang bersarang dalam jiwanya."

A Diamond Planet

By Chris Wickham

Orbiting a star that is visible to the naked eye, astronomers have discovered a planet twice the size of our own made largely out of diamond.

The rocky planet, called '55 Cancri e', orbits a sun-like star in the constellation of Cancer and is moving so fast that a year there lasts a mere 18 hours.

Discovered by a U.S.-Franco research team, its radius is twice that of Earth's but it is much more dense with a mass eight times greater. It is also incredibly hot, with temperatures on its surface reaching 3,900 degrees Fahrenheit (1,648 Celsius).

"The surface of this planet is likely covered in graphite and diamond rather than water and granite," said Nikku Madhusudhan, the Yale researcher whose findings are due to be published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters.

The study - with Olivier Mousis at the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planetologie in Toulouse, France - estimates that at least a third of the planet's mass, the equivalent of about three Earth masses, could be diamond.

Diamond planets have been spotted before but this is the first time one has been seen orbiting a sun-like star and studied in such detail.

"This is our first glimpse of a rocky world with a fundamentally different chemistry from Earth," Madhusudhan said, adding that the discovery of the carbon-rich planet meant distant rocky planets could no longer be assumed to have chemical constituents, interiors, atmospheres, or biologies similar to Earth.
David Spergel, an astronomer at Princeton University, said it was relatively simple to work out the basic structure and history of a star once you know its mass and age.

On Being Chinese Malaysian

Edited from an article by Dorcas Lam

.... I proudly call myself a Chinese Malaysian because I am a native of Malaysia with a Chinese ancestry. I am first and foremost a Malaysian, and Chinese is an adjective that describes my cultural heritage. Since multiculturalism is that which makes Malaysia so unique, using an adjective to complement my national identity as a Malaysian is a celebration of this diversity.

Why should I be deprived of the right to call myself a full Malaysian? And why must I be forced to identify myself with the nation of China when I have never even set foot on Chinese soil? I pledge my allegiance to no other flag but the Jalur Gemilang.

To those who frequently tell us Chinese Malaysians to balik tongsan, let me tell you that my tongsan is Kuala Lumpur because I was born here and I have spent all my life here, with many more to come, Lord willing. I believe that I have every right to call myself a Malaysian, and I will certainly not give in to anyone who attempts to rob me of my proud identity as a Chinese Malaysian.

Amboi..... Orang Sabah Begitu Hebat..! Tapi... Betulke?

 Peninsula Malaysia  =  164 %
                 Sarawak  =  148 %
                     Sabah  =  390 %

Walao eh... Sabahans are so good in making babies compared to Peninsula Malaysians and Sarawakians within the 40 years span from 1970 to 2010.
Sabahans made 2.38 babies compared to Peninsula 1 and 2.64 to Sarawakian 1.

Is there a logic for these figures?

Why The Hongkies Live The Longest In The World?


The Hongkies are enjoying the longest life span in the world. 
If you ever wonder why, here are the reasons: 

1. Seniors in HK have truly world class government health care which is virtually free by world standards. 

2. Seniors enjoy a very active life-style in their daily get-togethers with other fellow seniors to do voluntary social work, because public transport for all seniors is very heavily subsidised. 

3. Every senior is rewarded with a no-means-test-required monthly stipend of HK$2200 in recognition of their past contribution to build up HK. 

How is the HK government able to provide all these benefits even with absolutely zero percent GST? 

The bureaucracy does not charge astronomical salaries for the services of ministers and top civil servants. One senior minister in HK has put his own view very clearly: 

“Just being given the opportunity to work for my fellow citizens is already a great honour for me that does not need to be waxed with any high salary."

"I cannot bring the high salary with me to my grave, but I can leave this Earth with the greatest satisfaction that I have helped my fellow citizens, and I will leave behind my humble honour in Hong Kong’s history books.” 

Source: An email from Mr. David Ng 

P/S:  Hong Kong's ICAC is one of the well known anti-corruption agencies in the world. Perhaps that's one of the reasons HK's government servants are corrupted-free and are highly responsible and have a very high moral values in carrying their duty without fear and favour thus the high efficiency and results.

Q: Can Malaysia achieve such a standard? Sure!  But need to do a dy/dx to wipe out the devils of all corrupted-entities in all of its activities.

Negara Jadi Haru Biru Selepas Pemimpin Yang Memerintah Terlalu Lama


...jika sesebuah negara itu dipimpin oleh seseorang dengan jangkamasa yang terlalu panjang, negara itu akan kehilangan kepimpinan kerana semua mereka yang berkepimpinan itu akan mati ditelan masa. 

Bukan tidak ada contoh yang jelas yang boleh kita lihat dan dijadikan pelajaran. Presiden Tito memerintah hampir 3 dekad, akhirnya apabila beliau tiada Yugoslavia berpecah menjadi 5 negara kecil yang berperang tiada kesudahannya.

Presiden Marcos, seorang yang mula pemimpin yang demokratik akhirnya menjadi diktator dan memerintah selama 20 tahun, akhirnya Filipina sehingga hari ini belum lagi dapat bangun ke tahap yang mereka pernah alami dalam tahun enam puluhan. 

Begitu juga Indonesia yang diperintah Suharto selama 30 tahun menjadi haru-biru dan baru sekarang sahaja negara tersebut  telah kembali menjadi negara yang disegani dan negara demokrasi terbesar selepas India di Asia ini.

5 Signs A Politician Is Lying

Edited from Peaco Todd's article.
Politicians can be especially tricky to catch them lying since most of them have had so much practice.

They develop a keen sense of what we, the citizenry, want to hear: we warm to positive messages and flinch from painful truths. And because so many of us are woefully ignorant about the details of the issues, we, like sheep, are easily led. 

The best defense against a lie is knowledge. But apart from firsthand knowledge (or other reliable evidence) are there verbal and nonverbal clues that can give a liar away? 

Lying is harder than telling the truth. Lying is stressful. To be an effective liar requires that one rehearse and memorize detail rather than rely on memory. Because of the anxiety associated with lying and the perceived sense of the importance of the lie, the liar often will give him- or herself away. This is especially true of politicians since their lives can be exhaustingly busy and lies require energy and constant attention.

Some people are simply really good at lying. Many signs, such as the fleeting facial tics known as “micro-expressions,” are extremely difficult for a lay person to distinguish. When applying the following clues to uncover lies and liars, it’s good policy to temper hubris with modesty: understand that you might get it wrong. But careful use of them might help you get it right.  
 
1. Notice eye contact. 
It’s a myth that liars won’t or can’t make eye contact. However, look for unnatural eye contact: either the person is unable to maintain contact or s/he fixes you (or the camera) with a strained and aggressive stare. 

2. Read body language. 
Pay attention to such indicators as crossed arms or legs, slouching or tilting the head away: these can indicate the discomfort that accompanies lying. 

3. Follow the eyes
Many researchers posit that when the eyes look up and to the right (his or her right, not yours) this suggests that the part of the brain linked to the imagination is being triggered. Conversely, the eyes looking down and to the left might indicate the part of the brain linked to memory. 

4. Look at the hands. 
Often liars’ hands will speak eloquently of deception. Watch for clenched fists, covering the mouth or part of the face, rubbing the eyes, scratching on or behind the ear.

5. Pay attention to detail.
The person who offers too much detail, especially unasked, might be lying. Because the narrative of the lie is fabricated, the liar can often be tripped up by inconsistencies in the story, especially if the same questions are repeated after some time has passed. Politicians’ lips always move and it’s not always lies that emanate. To truly become a lie detector, you need to arm yourself with information and intuition. But if you do notice someone’s pants on fire. To read more about the signs of deception, check out these websites:

P/S: With the anticipated GE13 is getting very near, many politicians are scrambling to get to be selected by their respected party and get to be noticed by the voters and ultimately to be elected in the GE, they start to talk a lot and promising the moon and stars by talking nonsense. Therefore, now is the best time to apply the above knowledge to detect those politicians who are shamelessly lying to the core when they start open their big mouth. Perhaps we can take one of ex-PMs or the present PM or the Opposition Leader as a good example of the above study.
If in your evaluation you found out most of the politicians from a particular party were liars, are you going to keep putting your votes for these unscrupulous devils
Why not do a dy/dx for a better one, even it's an unknown angel!

Greed - Reserves A Place In Hell


It is becoming increasingly difficult for ordinary Malaysians to find decent affordable housing in urban areas.

Read more here:

A blog reader complains:

I’m trying to buy a second-hand apartment or condo. The owner bought at a low price but is selling at a very high price. I saw an 800 sq feet apt selling for RM280K but the banks valued it at RM180K–200K!

These people are greedy. It may be their choice to sell at a price they like but how to get buyers if your unit is ridiculously priced?

In areas near Batu Ferringhi, homes are bought up by foreigners. Most housing caters to the rich. It’s disappointing. Even a 700 sq ft bird cage-like-unit is going for RM300K!

I wish there would be laws that control how much owners can sell their units for. So many places are only for the rich and I wonder .... how many millionaires, billionaires are there? I even heard that a guy bought three units at RM90K each but is selling each at RM180k to RM200K!

Greed - Reserves a place in hell.

P/S: You are right, hope these greedy people and the irresponsible power-that-be be reserved a bungalow in hell. Serve them right!

Wish leaders of Penang People's Government be the first to come out with a law to control the price, after all DAP's main ideology is socialism! Please don't betray the majority of people who have done the dy/dx to vote you in! 

The Thieves Are Our Own Leaders


Unless you follow this advice you will lose your birthright, which will be taken from you by strangers and speculators who will in their turn become masters and owners, whilst you yourselves, you people of the soil, will be thrown aside, and become nothing but coolies and outcasts of the island.

The prophecy of the betrayal of the trusting people has come to pass. While the people slept, the thieves came softly in the night and took our lands, casting us aside.

Tragically, the betrayers of the people are not strangers but our own leaders.

Baru Bian,
Sarawak

911 - 11 Years On, The Pain Still Linger On!

NEW YORK, Sept 11 — Memorial ceremonies marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks began Tuesday under clear blue skies that recalled the crisp morning 11 years ago when nearly 3,000 people were killed by airliners hijacked by Islamist militants. Two of the jets brought down the Twin Towers of New York City’s World Trade Centre; another extensively damaged the Pentagon outside Washington and a fourth crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania when passengers aboard that flight revolted against the hijackers. At Ground Zero in New York where the towers once stood, more than 1,000 relatives of those killed and others gathered for the annual reading of the list of 2,983 people killed at the three sites.

All Of Us Belong To This Land!

Based on an article written by CT Ali.

Recently, someone high up has said this land belongs to a particular people and the particular people may risk losing the land to someone else who he has said is not the original people of this land. 

However CT Ali, a FMT columnist has said, how can the particular people lose this land when it never belonged to them in the first place! Instead he said this people belong to this land  – not the other way around. No other community, no other people, no other race can take away this land from this people – not when the others  have pledged themselves to belong to the same land. No one risked losing the land – but it is the land that risks losing all its people who have called this land is their home. 

So, the actual fact nobody or any single group, community or whoever he/she is, need to sound the alarm that they have to come forward to save this land from been taken away by someone else. Why?  Because all the people of this land who have helped and who are building this country to what it is today belong to this land 

Instead, the very same person or group who has sounded the alarm to a particular people or group to save this land from others should help to prevent the land from losing its people to somewhere else. 

This great country belongs to all who call it their home. We are all transient beings passing through this earth for a while. 

If really God has created a country for a particular people or group or better still the earth is for just one kind of people, then why must He creates different kind people in the first place. It make no sense for God to be such! And then there is no need to preach that we all come from the same root, Adam and Eve!

To those who have their hidden agenda and to protect their own selfish end, there is no right for you to declare this land belongs to you and your group and want to save it from others! Nobody is taking this land from anyone. All of us who we call it our home belong to this land. This is God's grace, this is God's creation, not you and me or anybody, even how mortally powerful one is then or now! 

If one still insist this is his/her land and need to be saved at all cost, then it is not worth to boast that he/she is glorifying God in the religion that he/she is now! Perhaps the tragedy that happened to Adam's two sons, where the elder killed his younger brother has cropped up into the person's mind to save his/her interest rather than to save the land from been taken by others! Indeed a devilish imagination!

To Be A Millionaire, Don't Just Sit There And Complain


There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire.
If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain.
Do something to make more money yourself.
Spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.
Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others.

Budaya Ketimuran Menuju Kepupusan?


Kita selama ini diajar untuk menghormati orang yang lebih tua daripada kita. Pastinya, budaya menghormati orang yang lebih tua daripada kita merupakan amalan terpuji dan dituntut di sisi agama. Apabila budaya menghormati orang tua terus dipertahankan, secara tidak langsungnya ia membuktikan bahawa tunjuk ajar yang diberikan oleh ibubapa tidak sia-sia. Malahan, ia turut melambangkan keperibadian seseorang. 

Bagi masyarakat di Timur, aspek ini cukup penting. Penting kerana ia merupakan ciri utama yang membezakan dengan masyarakat di Barat. Budaya ketimuran menekankan kepada “filial piety” dan ketaatan sementara di Barat, ia lebih menjurus kepada kebebasan individu, hak asasi manusia sekaligus mewujudkan vakum yang ketara. 

Kata-kata orang tua ada menyebut apabila kita menghormati orang lain, kita juga akan dihormati kemudiannya. Apa yang diperkatakan itu memang ada kebenarannya. Namun demikian, dalam dunia yang semakin dibayangi dengan elemen kebendaan dan pentingkan diri sendiri, amalan menghormati antara satu sama lain kini tinggal omongan kosong sahaja. 

Apabila bercakap mengenai sikap biadap atau kurang ajar, ia berlaku di mana-mana sahaja. Di tempat kerja, rumah, sekolah, jalan raya bahkan juga dalam pergaulan seharian dengan orang lain. Barangkali label paling sesuai yang boleh diberikan kepada orang yang biadap ialah mereka mempunyai “siege mentality”. Bagi golongan ini, mereka merasakan dirinya sentiasa betul manakala orang lain tetap bersalah biarpun keadaan adalah sebaliknya. 

Perhatikan sahaja sikap kebanyakan pemandu di atas jalan raya. Saban hari, ada sahaja kes yang mana pemandu menggunakan laluan kecemasan. Tidak cukup dengan itu, ada pula yang gemar membunyikan hon apabila kenderaan di hadapan mereka bergerak perlahan. Lebih memalukan, ada yang nekad untuk terus memandu biarpun lampu isyarat di persimpangan menunjukkan warna merah.

Situasi di tempat kerja juga tidak kurang hebatnya. Cuma, tahap kebiadapan diterjemahkan dalam gaya berbeza. Dalam konteks ini, pekerja yang diletakkan di bawah pengawasan anda enggan menerima arahan dan memberontak. Bermacam-macam kerenah cuba dicetuskan dengan harapan untuk menyukarkan proses kerja. Entah apa yang ingin dibuktikan oleh golongan ini. Ingin tunjuk lagak? Menarik perhatian ataupun semata-mata untuk menyakitkan hati orang? Apakah manfaat yang mereka boleh perolehi dengan berkelakuan sedemikian? Hanya mereka sahaja yang dapat menjawab persoalan itu. 

Tidak kira di mana sahaja kita berada, sikap biadap perlu dikikis. Jadilah seorang individu yang bersopan-santun dan sentiasa dikenang sebagai masyarakat yang kaya dengan budi bahasa. Bukankah masyarakat Timur terkenal dengan jolokan itu? Jangan biarkan sikap biadap menguasai diri kita. Ego hanya akan memusnahkan segala-galanya. Hayatilah mesej ini!
