“O Candles!!” plus 19 more

“O Candles!!” plus 19 more


O Candles!!

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 09:53 AM PDT

I need to recharged myself mentally and physically soon. I feel so tired. Going up and down KL from Kuantan had also interuppted so many of my aerobics classes. I feel drained.

We arrived at around 7 pm just now. After dinnering at Homst, Seth, J and I went back to J's apartment. We took a lift from J because Dato' had a business appointment with a few good friends at the Curve..hish..tak habis2 dengan business meetings. Banyak projek2 masih dalam oil pipeline.
InsyaAllah kalau menjadi even half of them, we'll have an oilwell!! Macam the wealthy Arab oil sheikhs..I'll then be coated with diamonds and pearls!! How I'll glitter and shine..shine, shine..

Well then..I had lighted some candles in the bathroom. The light bulb has not been changed. J had been busy with her headaches and work. We tried to change it but the bulb cover was so tight! Payah nak pusing, sampai I nearly pulled down the ceiling board!

Dato' came back about 15mins later. Seth and I then went downstairs to help the boss carry our stuff. When we came back, J was commenting of a 'kemian' smell. I was a bit spooked at first. Then I remembered the candles!!

Fire!! Part of the plastic surrounding the portable bathroom mirror had burnt furiously!! There was already a lot of soot in the bathroom. J was already screaming! And Dato' was unaware of the ruckus. He was already checking on his blog in the bedroom! Tahulah..kalau dah berdepan dengan his laptop, bom jatuh pun dia duduk depan komputer! Punyalah cool mccool! hahaha

I took a few scoops of water and doused the angry flame! Oohh..jadi firewoman sekejap tadi. Luckily, I didn't burn the bathroom and the whole condo building!

So folks, no candlelight dinners and no candlelight baths at our age..we might burn our eyebrows while bending our heads to eat our ikan parang or we might have to call the bomba brigade to give us that extra shower in our bathrooms.

As I washed my face, I stared at the sootish patch on the wall and at the ceiling. O what a night!

Era Najib Altantuya : Tindakan Polis Ganas dan Terlampau

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 10:45 AM PDT

Tindakan pihak polis dan Unit Simpanan Persekutuan (FRU) terhadap demonstrasi secara aman mansuhkan ISA di ibu negara, hari ini dianggap paling ganas dalam sejarah Malaysia, demikian lapor TVS.

Ahli Parlimen Kuala Selangor, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad yang menyertai Perhimpunan itu berkata, tindakan pihak berkuasa adalah keterlaluan dan melampau.

Lebih 400 orang yang berhimpun secara aman ditahan pihak polis yang turut melepaskan tembakan gas pemedih mata dan meriam air ke arah mereka di beberapa lokasi sekitar ibu negara.

"Kami tidak menjangkakan bahawa mereka terlalu terdesak dengan mengambil tindakan terlalu agresif dan melampau, dan ternyata mereka itu semacam lebih tertekan hari ini berbeza dengan perhimpunan terdahulu daripada ini. Sehingga petang ini mereka masih lagi menunggu kami di Jalan Raja Laut dan di Ibu Pejabat Pas ini.Saya kira ini adalah perbuatan paling ganas dan paling keji dari pihak FRU," katanya.

Kedua-dua pihak iaitu kumpulan Anti-ISA dan Pro-ISA gagal menyerahkan memorandum kepada Yang Di Pertuan Agong di Istana Negara.

Dr Dzulkefly menegaskan, undang-undang ISA ini bukan sahaja tidak releven pada masa ini, malah menzalimi rakyat di Negara ini sendiri.

"Kita mahukan Perdana Menteri mengambil kira kesungguhan dan komitmen rakyat.dan beliau perlu segera mengambil tindakan memansuhkan ISA dan bukan sekadar merujuk atau mengulang tayang serta meminda mana-mana undang-undang ini, tetapi pada dasarnya adalah zalim kerana menafikan hak pembelaan kepada tertuduh secara terbuka dimahkamah bagi mereka mempertahankan diri."

Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Samad pula berkata, kejadian yang berlaku pada hari ini menun jukkan mesej yang jelas daripada rakyat terhadap kezaliman yang berlaku di bawah pemerintahan Barisan Nasional.

Exco Selangor, Dr Halimah Ali berkata, tindakan pihak berkuasa yang melampau ini tidak seharusnya berlaku kerana Malaysia adalah sebuah Negara yang mengamalkan dasar demokrasi.

Katanya, rakyat berhak memberi pandangan dan mengemukakan memorandum kepada Yang DiPertuan Agong secara aman.

Sementara itu, suasana di Pusat Tahanan FRU Cheras menjadi kecoh apabila pihak polis bertelagah dengan para peserta demonstrasi anti-ISA yang ditahan sebelum dan semasa himpunan MANSUH, hari ini, demikian lapor harakahdaily.

Menurut Ahli Jawatan Kuasa Muslimat PAS, Athirah Aiman al-Jundi, yang ditahan kira-kira jam 12.50 tengah hari di Kompleks Pertama, pertelagahan tersebut berlaku apabila pihak polis tidak membenarkan mereka yang ditahan untuk menemui peguam.

Tambah beliau, pihak polis tidak membenarkan mereka menemui peguam dengan alasan 'mereka belum ditahan', selain mengatakan para peguam tidak mengendahkan hak dan nasib mereka.

"Alasan pihak polis tidak membenarkan kami menemui peguam ialah kerana kami belum ditahan. Jadi, yang letakkan kami di pusat tahanan ini apa namanya? Jika kami tidak ditahan, mengapa tidak dilepaskan sahaja?", soal beliau ketika dihubungi Harakahdaily.

Tambah beliau lagi, alasan polis bahawa para peguam tidak mengendahkan mereka yang ditahan turut tidak masuk akal, memandangkan terdapat tiga peguam di luar pusat tahanan tersebut, antaranya Lateefa Koya yang ingin menemui mereka yang ditahan.

Sambil menyatakan kesemua yang ditahan dipisahkan antara satu sama lain bagi mengelakkan sebarang perbincangan, Athirah turut memaklumkan tiada sebarang keterangan diambil polis ke atas mereka yang ditahan.

"Kita tidak tahu apa yang mereka mahu. Keterangan tidak diambil, malah terdapat dua tahanan wanita dihantar ke Balai Polis Bukit Jalil. Atas sebab apa kita tidak tahu. Malah, ada di kalangan yang ditahan telah diambil kad pengenalan mereka tanpa dipulangkan kembali," tambah beliau yang turut menyampaikan informasi melalui sistem pesanan ringkas (SMS) kepada Harakahdaily.

Dalam pada itu, beliau turut memaklumkan mereka yang ditahan bertindak melakukan pelbagai aktiviti bagi memprotes tindakan polis, antaranya melaungkan slogan 'Hidup Rakyat', 'Mansuh ISA', 'Hentikan kezaliman', 'hancur penindasan', 'lawan tetap lawan', selain mendeklamasikan sajak.

Antara yang turut ditahan bersama Athirah ialah AJK PAS Pusat, Mujahid Yusof Rawa; Exco Pemuda Pusat, Khairul Faizi Ahmad Kamil; Naib Presiden KeADILan, Sivarasa Rasiah; serta beberapa aktivis lain, termasuk isteri tahanan ISA lapan tahun, Norlaila Othman.



Doggy Tales

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 07:39 AM PDT

Having a dog around the house and looking after it as almost exactly like looking after another child! I've had Pebbles living with us for nearly two weeks now and it's made a lot of difference to our lives. Instead of having two hyper active boys to look after,we now also have to keep an eye out for Pebbles.

But the good thing is at least she's a really well behaved dog. Aside from tailing me or wifey all around the house, she doesn't misbehave (something I wish the boys would learn from her) and she doesn't even bark, aside from the occasional short bark at lizards or something that catches her eye. She's also the worlds biggest coward cos the slightest sudden sound or move will have her scurrying for cover ... LOL!

It's also an eye opener for us to be looking after a dog. Both wifey and me haven't really looked after a dog before, not this kind of house dog anyway. I had a dog or two during my childhood days, also a mongrel which really doesn't need any looking after so having Pebbles is a new experience for us.

She constantly shadows us around the house. And when we sit down for the evening to watch TV, there she'll be on the couch with us slowing working her between us trying to get her favourite tummy rub. And when we sit down to surf, there's she'll be at our feet or between our chairs and table sleeping away.

She really loves having the presence of someone around and we're both are so taken in with her that we tend to pamper her to the max and she loves it. You can see it by the wagging of her tail which I told Anny is on auto wag ... LOL!

The only saddening part for us is when we go out for dinner or shopping and have to leave her on her own. You can see the sadness in her eyes cos she knows we're going out without her. But the moment we get home, she'll be jumping for joy. It warms the soul :D

Besides the slight scare we had over here two days ago, she's been a pretty good doggy. She doesn't make a mess of the place. She has her own toilet spot and she'll always go there if she needs to do her business, big or small which is a good thing. The best part is she never makes a sound and will definitely never make a good guard dog ... LOL!

But she's an adorable creature that has me looking at her every ten minutes as I write this post (she's sleeping between wifey and me now) and it brings a smile to my face. She's actually pretty tired today from all the playing around she did but she won't really go to her sleeping spot under the bed and call it a night until wifey and me finish our surfing sessions. Once we're done and we head to bed, she'll sleepily amble along to her spot under our bed. She's a really loyal little dog and wants to always be as close to us as she possibly can.

Even our shopping routine has changed. Instead of just having to look for glass tile's we're now also hanging around the pet food section even more buying her all kinds of goodies and treats. I think the boys are going to be complaining that we show her too much attention one of these days ... LOL!

Gee, I've been talking about her so much that I think this blog is turning out to be a blog all about her. Like Bem said in my other blog, maybe I should change the name of my blog to Pebble's blog. Bem, you're a riot la buddy ... LOL! But then it's better I talk about her than be my usual self and complain and bitch about anything and everything right? LOL!

But before I really sign off, here's a picture taken of her sleeping by our feet in this little urmmm, bed made for her by wifey. Sorry about the bad image quality, taken with my cell phone. Isn't that a sight to melt the heart?

Pakis kill Christians

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 08:25 AM PDT

Christians chant slogans behind a banner reading, 'Provincial government immediately take steps to arrest the culprits,' during a rally to condemn the attacks on Christians by Sunni Muslims, in Lahore . -AP Photo

As for normal, the Paki police failed to protect them. In Pakistan do not expect justice for the minorities. The four women, a man and a child died as Muslim militants set fire to Christian houses in the town of Gojra, officials said. In the following report, in this Paki news they do not mention it, they want to paint over the picture, by just saying 6 Christians died-edit. ISLAMABAD: Days of rioting between Christians and Muslims in eastern Pakistan following allegations that a Quran was defiled escalated Saturday, leaving six Christians dead, including a child, authorities said. Members of a banned Muslim organization began torching Christian homes in the Punjabi city of Gora on Thursday after accusing them of desecrating pages from Islam's holy book, Federal Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti said.

'There is no truth in the allegation,' he told The Associated Press, adding that he had himself visited Gojra on Friday and asked police to provide protection to Christians who were facing threats. He accused the police of ignoring his instructions and said hundreds of radical Muslims on Saturday burned more Christians homes and killed six, including four women and a child. Television footage from the scene showed houses burning and streets strewn with debris and blackened furniture as mobs ran at each other. Local media also reported gunfights had broken out between Christian and Muslim communities and that rioters had blocked the local railway line.

Pakistan is predominantly a Sunni Muslim state where Christians are a tiny minority. Although the two sides generally live peacefully, since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the US, pro-Taliban militants have periodically targeted churches and Christians, suspecting them of sympathizing with Washington. Bhatti said the attackers belonged to the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba group, which is accused of launching attacks against the security forces and carrying out bombs attacks at public places in the country in recent years.

Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah said authorities had investigated the allegation of a Quran being defaced 'and our initial reports say that there has not been any incident of desecration.' Sanaullah said that although the situation had calmed down by Friday, 'some miscreants and extremists entered the city today and pushed people toward armed clashes.' Another minister, Dost Mohammad Khosa, said the issue of the alleged desecration had been settled.

'Today, somebody opened fire at a peaceful rally that was passing by a Christian neighborhood. That made things worse. We are sure some miscreant elements have tried to exploit the situation,' he said. Faislabad Commissioner Tahir Hussain told local television that representatives of the two communities were to meet later Saturday in an effort to calm the situation.

'Let's hope for the best. The emotions of the Muslims are very high,' he said. 'And the Christians again they have faced the wrath and they have faced the casualties, and their emotions are also very high.' -AP Dawn

Barack Obama courts human rights abusers in Taliban fight

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 07:38 AM PDT

In a repeat of the 19th Century "Great Game", when the Russians and British competed for relations with Muslim leaders on the outposts of their empires, Mr Obama's envoys are scuttling between the palaces of Central Asia's post-Soviet dictators. In the last three months, Mr Obama has cut deals with Presidents Islam Karimov of Uzbekistan and Kurmanbek Bakiyev of Kyrgyzstan. Mr Karimov has been accused by a former British ambassador of ordering two opponents boiled alive. One of Mr Bakiyev's critics was recently stabbed 26 times in the buttocks by unknown assailants.

US diplomats have also paid calls on Ashgabad, the capital of Turkmenistan, a country still reeling from the personality cult of "Turkmenbashi", as the late President Sapurmurat Niyazov styled himself during his eccentric 19-year rule. "The United States is fixated by Afghan issues and does not care if it supports dictators," Tashbulat Yuldashev, a former Uzbek government official turned dissident told The Telegraph.

He fled Uzbekistan last year under threat from gangs of heavies after criticising Mr Karimov, president since the fall of the Soviet Union eighteen years ago. Mr Obama has brought a new pragmatism to foreign policy, disappointing those who expected his liberal idealism to dominate all aspects of his administration. That pragmatism is now being employed on one of the great diplomatic battlegrounds of history: the Silk Road through Central Asia, for decades closed off as part of the Soviet Union but now once again open to the exchange of goods, people – and unrest.

In the Fergana Valley, which straddles Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan and is close to Afghanistan, Islamic militants have found ready recruiting grounds in the hundreds of thousands of migrant workers who have lost their jobs in the financial crisis. Nine jihadists were killed in gun-battles near the city of Osh, on the Kyrgyz side of the border in June alone, while Uzbek identity cards have been found on dead Taliban fighters in Pakistan. Such incidents have made security more of a priority for both countries and America. Four years ago Mr Bush decided he could no longer tolerate Mr Karimov's politics after troops opened fire on an uprising in the eastern city of Andijan with the loss of hundreds of lives.

In retaliation for American criticism, Mr Karimov closed down a US air base that had been established as Mr Bush took his "war on terror" to neighbouring Afghanistan. The British ambassador to Tashkent, Craig Murray, had also written a detailed attack on the US-Uzbek alliance, claiming that Mr Karimov had tortured and killed opponents. But after Mr Obama's first approaches this year, Mr Karimov authorised the use of a US base as part of supplying the new US surge of troops into Afghanistan. Mr Karimov's record has hardly changed however. Human Rights Watch says 6,000 people are currently incarcerated in Uzbekistan for "non-violent religious offences". Journalists and activists continue to be imprisoned.

Freedoms are deteriorating in Kyrgyzstan too. Four years ago it was the great hope of US policy after the "tulip revolution" which, strongly influenced by American-backed civil rights groups, threw out Askar Akayev, the Soviet-era leader, and replaced him with Mr Bakiyev, an opposition figurehead. Mr Bakiyev, however, turned on the Americans, expelling two US diplomats and repeatedly threatening to close down the United States's second Central Asian military base near Bishkek.

He also renewed the country's close ties to Russia. A journalist who in February attacked that policy as seeking "oxygen for a sinking submarine" was subsequently set upon by men with metal bars who broke his ribs, arms and a leg and stabbed him repeatedly in the buttocks. Another critic, Medet Sadyrkulov, a former head of Mr Bakiyev's administration, was found dead in his burned-out car in March. Despite this, Mr Obama has agreed to triple the fee the US government pays for the use of the air base to keep it open to $60 million, with another $120 million in aid.

A senior Obama administration official disagreed with the suggestion that democracy activists were being ignored. "We engage both government and non-governmental leaders in the region. We do not one at the expense of the other," he said, adding that William Burns, under secretary of state for political affairs, recently toured Central Asia and raised concerned about human rights and democracy with "every head of state he met". "There is the notion that engaging allows you to address these issues better than not engaging," said the official, adding that the US maintained support for pro-democracy projects in the region.

The region's diplomatic sands shift fast and no-one can predict how long the new alliances will last. But Mr Yuldashev, the dissident, said rulers like Mr Karimov were adept at playing "divide and rule" to make their own leadership seem indispensable. "Democracy in Uzbekistan has no financial support any more from the United States," he said. "It only cares about Afghanistan." The Telegraph

Era Najib Altantuya : Amaran Kepada Polis - Perjuangan Rakyat Itu BENAR! (Updated)

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 07:01 AM PDT

HARI INI jam 2.00 petang, rakyat telah berhimpun di dalam satu perhimpunan aman anjuran Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI). Melalui perhimpunan itu GMI diharapkan dapat menyerahkan satu deklarasi rakyat kepada Yang di-Pertuan Agong menuntut ISA dimansuhkan kerana mencabuli hak-hak asasi sesuai dengan syor Suruhanjaya Hak Asasi Manusia (Suhakam). Perhimpunan tersebut berjaya cemerlang tetapi deklarasi tidak dapat diserahkan kepada Agong lantaran disekat oleh Polis.

Setiap kali demonstrasi aman yang dilakukan oleh rakyat, pihak kerajaan terus akan mengecap ia sebagai "perhimpunan haram" sekalipun AKHIRNYA kebenaran membuktikan perjuangan rakyat itu benar dan tindakan polis serta kerajaan adalah salah.

Buktinya ialah sewaktu Datuk Hishamuddin Hussein menjadi menteri pelajaran, satu demontrasi apa yang dipanggil "Anti-PPSMI" yang diadakan pada 7 Mac lalu. Sekalipun perhimpunan itu menerima tentangan hebat dari pihak berkuasa sehingga rakyat "dihadiahkan" dengan pelbagai kezaliman polis dan keangkuhan menteri yang bertanggungjawab untuk terus tidak melayani tuntutan rakyat, namun akhirnya kerajaan mendapati perjuangan rakyat tersebut adalah benar dan langkah diambil untuk menghapuskan PPSMI.

Pengumuman Timbalan Menteri sendiri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin yang mengumumkan pemansuhan perlaksanaan adalah berdasarkan kepada kajian saintifik terhadap perkara itu dan beliau berkata PPSMI tidak mencapai tujuannya kerana peningkatan penguasaan bahasa Inggeris dalam kalangan guru dan pelajar adalah sangat rendah.

Ia sekaligus menafikan kenyataan Hishamuddin yang satu ketika berkeras ingin meneruskan dasar PPSMI tersebut sekalipun telah menerima tentangan dari banyak pihak.

Kini di bawah menteri yang sama, Hishamuddin selaku Menteri Dalam Negeri sekali lagi mencari pasal dengan rakyat dan beliau dikatakan sudah memaklumkan kepada Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Musa Hassan supaya mengambil tindakan tegas terhadap mereka yang terlibat dalam demonstrasi anti ISA yang diadakan petang tadi.

Hasilnya ia memberi lesen untuk polis bertindak ganas dan keterlaluan ke atas rakyat. 438 orang ditahan sehingga pukul 6 petang tadi termasuk 37 wanita dan 38 pesalah juvenil.

Tidakkah Hishamuddin terfikir bahawa tindakannya itu bakal mengundang hal yang sama sepertimana beliau mengarahkan polis bertindak ke atas peserta demonstrasi GMP-PPSMI yang baru lalu?

Apa yang menjadi masalahnya, sekalipun akhirnya suara rakyat itu diakui benar, tetapi pihak berkuasa polis TELAH melakukan kezaliman dan kekejamannya melalui siri penggunaan FRU untuk membelasah dan menangkap rakyat yang menyertai perhimpunan tersebut dengan menjadikan diri mereka golongan binatang yang tidak kenal erti kemanusiaan, menghadiahkan rakyat dengan semburan gas pemedih mata, asid berkimia malah ada diantaranya diseret, dipukul, ditendang sesuka hati.

Jika pemansuhan PPSMI diumumkan untuk menarik perhatian pengundi di Manek Urai, apakah nanti ISA disimpan untuk dijadikan penimbal modal yang akan diumumkan untuk dimansuhkan pada plihanraya Permatang Pasir akan datang?

Yang nyata, rakyat tidak selalunya salah dan kerajaan tidak selalunya betul, tetapi tindakan polis menggunakan kekerasan dan kezaliman TETAP salah dipandang dari sudut apa sekalipun. Polis dengan mudah meletakkan rakyat sebagai bahan buruan dengan mereka meletakkan undang-undang di dalam tangan mereka sendiri sehingga sanggup merancang provokasi supaya perhimpunan rakyat menjadi huru-hara dan tampak seperti satu rusuhan bagi menjustifikasikan "serangan" mereka ke atas rakyat.

Mursyidul Am PAS, Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat menegaskan tidak ada sebab kerajaan menghalang hak kebebasan suara rakyat bagi menyampaikan hasratnya sama ada dalam bentuk protes melalui perhimpunan aman tanpa niat untuk mencetuskan huru-hara.

- Demonstrasi diadakan kerana rakyat ingin menyampaikan hasratnya. Bukan untuk mencetuskan sebarang huru-hara. Dan ia akan dilakukan dengan aman. Jadi kenapa tidak boleh?

- Sudah lama rakyat melontarkan suara hatinya dengan cara cukup berhemah supaya ISA dimansuhkan. Sama juga dengan pemansuhan PPSMI, tapi ia seolah-olah tidak ada sebarang tindak balas positif.

- Maka inilah pilihan lain terpaksa diambil mereka, ujarnya pada majlis kuliah mingguan di dataran ilmu dekat sini pagi semalam.

Nik Aziz berhujah kerajaan yang dilantik oleh rakyat melalui proses pengundian menerusi pilihan raya yang memerintah lebih daripada 50 tahun sepatutnya lebih matang dalam memahami aspirasi rakyat dalam pelbagai aspek.

"Seseorang menteri ataupun kerajaan dilantik oleh rakyat. Kalau rakyat tidak undi dia tak boleh jadi kerajaan ataupun menteri. Jadi kenapa dinafikan hak rakyat yang inginkan hak mereka," ujarnya.

Sehubungan itu beliau memberitahu undang-undang negara menggambarkan seolah-olah ingin meletakkan sesuatu kesalahan di atas bahu rakyat sambil menegaskan demikianlah yang dinamakan undang-undang sekular.

Ingat, Datuk Syed Hamid Albar telah menjadi Menteri Dalam Negeri yang sentiasa menentang suara rakyat dan rakyat telah menadah tangan ke langit agar tidak memanjangkan perkhidmatan si kuda kayu itu. Akhirnya nama Syed Hamid terpadam jua dari kabinet dengan rakyat masih tidak melupakan kezaliman yang telah dilakukannya!

Polis seringkali mengeluarkan amaran kepada rakyat, KINI kita ingin menyampaikan suara amaran dari rakyat kepada polis : JANGAN MANAHAN AIR YANG TURUN DARI GUNUNG KERANA ANDA BAKAL DIHANYUTKAN KE LEMBAH KEHANCURAN

Liberty

I believe in an individual liberty. I always believe that, a person is innocent until proven guilty.

pro I.S.A vs anti-I.S.A....what I have to say about this? No, I have no freedom talking about this. People will immediately ''stamp'' on my forehead that I'm an anti-government or what-so-ever. It makes me wonder, what I.S.A has something to do with race anyway?

Pro-I.S.A people say, '' KEKALKAN I.S.A untuk mempertahankan hak keisitimewaan orang Melayu''. People, I'm not against any races. But, why must we relate I.S.A with race? Why? This is what I called as PROVOCATION. Yes, it's provocation.

I.S.A has nothing to do with certain races. It's about a person liberty. Let say, if we caught a SUSPECTED terrorist, he/she has the rights for court hearings. Let the evidence speaks.

Would I join the street demo in KL just now? My answer would be a NO. Firstly because this demo is motivated by POLITICAL PARTIES. Not by the rakyat itself. Yes, I want a demo just as in France. French government is scared to hell to the French people. Once the rakyat goes to the street, you'll expecting a minister to quit his job. If not, how would you explain the French Revolution? That's why I'm so look-up the French. Not only French, but I think most of the European countries, i.e, Greece, Italy, Spain, Germany etc....

Ok, enough said. Tak pasal-pasal aku kena buang universiti pula. Urrghh.

Era Najib Altantuya : 80% Kata Perhimpunan Tak Gugat Ketenteraman Awam

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 06:29 AM PDT

Demonstrasi aman tidak sesekali menganggu ketenteraman awam. Itu pandangan majoriti rakyat. 80% responden undian sms 7 Edition juga berpendapat demikian, hanya 20% yang sependapat dengan pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO BN dan juga polis yang menyifatkan demonstrasi aman boleh menggugat ketenteraman orang awam.

Sebenarnya perhimpunan Gerakan Menentang ISA (GMI), jika tidak diganggu, tidak samasekali mendatang apa-apa kemudharatan kepada ketenteraman dan keselamatan awam. Yang menyebabkan perhimpunan menjadi kecoh adalah lantaran sikap keterlalauan polis yang menggunakan kekerasan melampau ke atas peserta perhimpunan dengan menahan, mengasari dan menangkap para peserta perhimpunan.

Medan perhimpunan yang aman tiba-tiba bertukar menjadi medan untuk polis menunjukkan kuasanya dengan menggunakan water canon menyembar air kimia dan unit FRU yang menembak gas pemedih mata kepada peserta perhimpunan.

Sepertimana kami laporkan semalam, bahawa kesesakan lalulintas bukanlah disebabkan oleh sebarang perhimpunan, tetapi oleh tindakan polis yang membuat sekatan jalanraya dengan tujuan untuk menghalang orang-ramai kononnya dari menyertai perhimpunan yang diadakan pada hari ini.

Rakyat sudah muak dan jelek dengan sikap polis yang sebenarnya lebih bertindak untuk menjaga kepentingan parti dan pemimpin UMNO BN dan bukan untuk rakyat terbanyak.

Persoalan yang menjadi tandatanya, kenapakah kerajaan UMNO BN dan Polis begitu takut dengan usaha rakyat untuk menyerahkan memorandum kepada DYMM Yang Dipertuan Agong?

Dan kenapa pula Polis bertindak lebih sudu dari kuah sedangkan Agong sendiri telah dimaklumkan tentang perhimpunan yang diadakan pada petang ini?

Apa haknya polis tiba-tiba menyekat jalan ke Istana Negara?

Apa ke jadahnya tiba-tiba polis membawa anjing-anjing pengesan dan water canon ke jalanraya untuk "membelasah" rakyat yang berhimpun secara aman?

Tidak mengapa, rakyat akan berdemonstrasi lagi selepas ini kerana itu adalah fitrah mana-mana manusia di atas dunia ini hatta orang UMNO BN sekalipun, sesiapa pun tidak boleh menyekatnya walau anda halakan seribu water canon ke arahnya!


Sorry sir, but he's had a bit too much to drink

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 06:06 AM PDT

During my mis-spent youth, I had to attend a Cpls to Sgts mess function. Now, from experience, I never drank alcohol at mess functions, mainly because I was always asked to drive friends home, but also because I would never allow alcohol to cloud my judgment.

Anyway, at one such function, a young Cpl decided to gob off at me in the mistaken viewpoint that he could take me out with physical violence. Seeing as he was to the right of me at a 90 degree angle, I struck him between the legs with a downward Uraken, and as he collapsed, I grabbed his hair with my right hand, his pint glass with my left, and was in the process of driving his head onto my knee in which to smash his face in.

When the Garrison Sgt Maj (GSM) decided to come across and ask how I was doing, I instantly weaved a story about how buggerlugs couldn't hold his beer and I was helping him recover to a chair. The GSM thanked me for helping out with a visitor to the mess and left to speak with somebody else. His intervention rescued buggerlugs from a broken face and me from getting charged with assault.

Please don't think I'm a violent man. I'm not. But sometimes, after being provoked, you have to make a stand in which to say enough is enough, otherwise you give permission to those who presume to think that might is right.

Which brings me to the point of my missive. You see, Israel today published a report into its foray into Gaza at the start of the year. Its conclusion was: after years of provocation it's assault into Gaza was "Necessary and proportionate".

Oh how the Left are bitching about how Israel took the fight to Hamas. But the thing is, sometimes, just sometimes, you have to make the point of showing your neighbourhood bully that you aren't as weak and feeble as he thinks you are. Eye On The World

CHASING THE PROTESTORS IS AN EXCELLENT EXERCISE FOR THE POLICE. HOPEFULLY, AFTER THIS, THE POLICE WILL BE FITTER TO CATCH CRIMINALS....

BUT THEN AGAIN, AFTER LOOKING AT THE PICTURE BELOW, YOU WILL KNOW HOW EFFECTIVE OUR POLICE IS!

With so many police personnel used to handle and arrest a single supporter, it is no wonder that PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim considers the action by police against peaceful protesters today as 'excessive force'. - Picture by Choo Choy May (Source: The Malaysian Insider)

Era Najib Altantuya : Kemarahan Rakyat Akan Dibawa Ke Tong Undi Permatang Pasir

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 04:47 AM PDT

Kekejaman dan kezaliman UMNO BN dan Polis Di Raja Malaysia yang bertindak ganas dan kasar kepada rakyat pasti akan terbalas juga.

Perhimpunan Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA sekalipun dihalang untuk menyerahkan memorandum kepada DYMM Yang Dipertuan Agong namun, yang nyata, dunia menyaksikan hari ini rakyat berbilang kaum telah bangkit dalam bilangan yang ramai sehingga mencecah 100,000 orang (sekalipun angka oleh media massa hanya 20,000).

Ketua Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK), Shamsul iskandar Mohd Akin di dalam kenyataannya menyatakan AMK Malaysia mengecam sekeras-kerasnya tindakan ganas pihak polis menyerang, mengganasi dan menangkap rakyat Malaysia yang melaksanakan hak mereka untuk berhimpun secara aman di Kuala Lumpur hari ini, menuntut pemansuhan akta zalim ISA.

Katanya, AMK mengutuk tindakan ganas polis yang sama sekali tidak perlu. Ia adalah di luar batasan amalan demokrasi dan hak asasi rakyat Malaysia untuk menyerahkan memorandum ke bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Malah pihak polis tidak menghormati Baginda kerana temujanji untuk menyerahkan memorandum tersebut kepada wakil Baginda telah ditetapkan pada hari ini.

Keganasan hari ini yang menindas dan menekan suara rakyat Malaysia ternyata mendedahkan omongan kosong '1 Malaysia' yang dilaung-laungkan oleh Perdana Menteri.

Angkatan Muda Keadilan Malaysia menggesa Dato' Seri Najib Razak untuk membuktikan bahawa pentadbiran beliau bukan hanya berasaskan slogan-sloganan semata-mata dengan membuka ruang demokrasi dan bersuara kepada seluruh rakyat Malaysia.

Sebagai langkah pertama, hampir 500 orang rakyat yang ditahan hari ini ketika melaksanakan hak mereka yang dijamin oleh Perlembagaan, mesti segera dibebaskan.

Ketua Polis Negara dan pegawai-pegawai utama polis yang mengarahkan keganasan hari ini, mencabul hak perlembagaan rakyat dan bertindak biadap terhadap Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong, perlu digantung tugas dan siasatan bebas dilaksanakan terhadap mereka.

Najib perlu bersedia membuktikan bahawa beliau berhasrat untuk benar-benar menjadi Perdana Menteri kepada semua rakyat Malaysia dengan segera mengambil langkah-langkah perlu untuk menentukan kehendak sebenar rakyat mengenai ISA dengan mengadakan pungutan suara (referendum) bebas.

Tatacara pengendalian pihak polis terhadap rakyat yang berhimpun mesti dikaji semula bagi memastikan mereka mengawal keselamatan dan bukan bertindak liar mengganasi rakyat.

Sudah sampai masanya tindakan pemerintah memperalatkan polis untuk kepentingan sempit mereka dihentikan dan polis seharusnya menjaga keselamatan rakyat dan bukan mengganasi mereka.

Sekiranya Najib enggan melaksanakan perubahan-perubahan ini, ternyata beliau mengemukakan gagasan '1 Malaysia' hanya sekadar untuk mengabui mata rakyat dan memperdayakan Malaysia bahawa kerajaan hari ini sudah berubah.

Sementara itu, seorang Ketua PAS Peringkat Bahagian menyatakan, isu ISA dan kezaliman polis hari ini pasti akan dibawa ke Permatang Pasir dan UMNO BN perlu dihukum oleh rakyat kerana membiarkan polis bertindak sewenang-wenang ke atas rakyat.

"Pihak polis merasa diri mereka terlalu berkuasa, lebih berkuasa dari Yang Dipertuan Agong, apabila mereka menghalang rakyat untuk menyerahkan memorandum kepada Yang Dipertuan Agong yang telah bersetuju untuk menerima kehadiran rakyat di Istana Negara," jelasnya.

Dianggar lebih 200 orang ditahan sebelum dan semasa perarakan. Antara ahli parlimen Pakatan Rakyat yang ditahan termasuklah Dr. Mujahid Yusuf Rawa dan Sivarasa Rasiah. Tengahari tadi pula, Norlaila Osman, Narshitah Mohd Nor dan Aiman Athirah Al-Jundi juga turut ditahan.









Pneumococcal jab and price @ HUKMSC

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 03:55 AM PDT


Janson took his first jab. For one-year-old and above, only two jabs are given.
The second jab is given two months after the first jab.
Official name of the jab: Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine.
This jab is optional here in Malaysia but it is mandatory and free in Australia.
It cost us RM266.50 but we did not have to pay for it. Thank God for the blessing!
According to the pediatrician, the immunization lasts until a child reaches 5 or 6 years old (if I remember correctly!)

Era Najib Altantuya : Mustahil UMNO BN Boleh Sekat Kebangkitan Rakyat

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 03:20 AM PDT

Sebagai jawapan kepada Menteri Pertahanan yang juga Naib Presiden Umno, Dato' Zahid Hamidi yang menyatakan mustahil untuk memansuhkan ISA, namun rakyat berkata "Mustahil UMNO BN mampu sekat kebangkitan rakyat yang ingin ISA dimansuhkan.

Ahli Parlimen Batu, Tian Chua menyatakan, "Polis boleh tangkap ratusan orang, polis boleh kacau dan ancam kita, tetapi polis tidak boleh menghalang kebangkitan rakyat."

"Kami akan berdemonstrasi lagi hingga ISA dimansuhkan," ujar beliau.

Sependapat dengan Tian, Pengerusi Gerakan Masuhkan ISA (GMI), Syed Ibrahim Seyd Noh berkata, himpunan akan tetap diteruskan bagi menyatakan rasa benci rakyat terhadap penggunaan ISA yang telah menzalimi mereka yang tidak bersalah.

"Jika kerajaan berniat meneruskan akta ini, jangan lupa mereka juga akan jatuh kerana rakyat menentang akta ini," ujarnya lagi.

Selang beberapa minit selepas selesai berucap, himpunan cuba digerakkan ke arah Dataran Merdeka, namun polis dan FRU menggunakan water cannon bagi menyembur air selain gas pemedih mata.

Hari ini, lebih 100 ribu rakyat berkumpul di pelbagai lokasi untuk menyampaikan Memorandum 10 Deklarasi ISA kepada Yang Dipetuan Agong tetapi terhalang akibat kekangan polis yang ketat.

Sementara itu sidang media khas yang diketuai Ketua Pembangkang, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim sebentar tadi antara lain memutuskan akan menghantar Memorandum 10 Dekralasi ISA kepada Yang Dipetuan Agong dalam masa terdekat.

Sidang media turut dihadiri Lim Kit Siang; Dato Mustapha Ali, Dato' Mahfuz Omar, Salahuddin Ayub, Pengerusi GMI, Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh serta beberapa pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat yang lain.

Oleh kerana sekatan dan kekangan polis yanga agak ketat, menyebabkan tiada siapa dari pimpinan GMI dan Pakatan Rakyat yang bolos ke Istana Negara. Sebaliknya semua kumpulan penyokong berpecah dan akhirnya menuju ke Pejabat Agung PAS di Jalan Raja Laut.

Antara tuntutan 10 Deklarasi ISA itu ialah mahu kerajaan melaksanakan siasatan awam dan menyiasat semua kes penyiksaan, penganiayaan, kezaliman dan tidak berperikemanusiaan ISA selama ini.

Anwar menyifatkan Himpunan MANSUH ISA berjaya mencapai sasaran apabila lebih 100,000 penyokong Anti-ISA berkumpul di merata tempat sekitar Kuala Lumpur setelah di halang secara tegar oleh pihak polis.


Judge slams Hilali spokesman ( Australian Mufti's aka "Uncovered Cat Meat")

Posted: 01 Aug 2009 07:31 AM PDT

KEYSAR Trad, the long-time spokesman for Muslim cleric Taj Din al-Hilali, was yesterday denounced as "racist", "offensive" and "untruthful" by the Supreme Court judge who rejected his defamation claim against radio station 2GB. Judge Peter McClellan said he agreed Mr Trad "incites acts of violence, incites racist attitudes, is dangerous and perhaps most significantly is a disgraceful individual".

He added that the founder of the Islamic Friendship Association held views that were "entirely repugnant" to most Australians. They included:

* Defending the stoning of a women for adultery in Nigeria;

* Condoning suicide bombers and the use of children as martyrs;

* Calling homosexuality "a depraved carnal pursuit" that should be criminalised;

* Regarding Anglo-Irish Australians as "unworthy descendants of criminal dregs";

* Joking about rapes committed by the Bilal Skaf gang;

* Believing America poses a greater threat to Australia than radical Islam; and

* Endorsing Hilali speeches which described the September 11 attacks as "blessings" and excused rapes on women who dressed like "uncovered meat".

The judge noted that Mr Trad suggested in the last example that Sheik Hilali was talking about people who engage in extramarital sex -- evidence he dismissed as "disingenuous". Justice McClellan cited an article in The Weekend Australian in September 2002 in which Mr Trad denied Muslims were behind September 11 and suggested Osama bin Laden could not have organised the attack.

"Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for September 11," Justice McClellan said. "A suggestion that the terrorist act was not perpetrated by adherents to Islam would not be accepted by Australians whatever their ethnic origin or religious views." Mr Trad had also hosted a web page with links to anti-Semitic sites and Adolf Hitler's manifesto Mein Kampf: "He must be regarded as having apparent sympathies for the views of Adolf Hitler," Justice McClellan said.

He said Mr Trad had never condemned the sheik's views, which he suggested on many occasions would have been "the only appropriate response". Mr Trad, who faces up to $400,000 in costs, was devastated by the decision and said there would be an appeal. "I disagree with the judgment and what the judge said about me," he said.

Mr Trad sued the top-rating Sydney station in the NSW Supreme Court after presenter Jason Morrison described him as "gutless" and "just trouble" after a rally held in the wake of the Cronulla riots in December 2005. Mr Trad's comment about the "shame in tabloid journalism and one talkback station" caused the crowd to boo and harass a 2GB journalist near the stage.

The reporter told Morrison he feared for his safety, prompting the presenter to deliver his tirade. In August 2007, a jury found Morrison had defamed Mr Trad but Justice McClellan found for 2GB in the second -- or defence -- phase of the trial in May. He ruled the statements were true and also protected as a justified response to an attack. The Australian
