My brother is now almost, ALMOST, half a Singaporean because he has been there for like 10 9 years already, high school, junior college and now university, his culture is like 75% Singaporean culture and 25% Malaysian culture. Hehe, as for me, I am 100% pure Malaysian Penangite. =)

Last Day of SPM, Day 9

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 09:15 AM PST

Last day of SPM was a crazy day. My mind was so relax on the morning, the night before was nervous but as soon as I stepped into school, everything goes off. It's just last minute, I know means know, I don't know means don't know. Everything goes along with the feel of the Chinese paper. To be honest, my Chinese has never been v very good, but I still trying to be my best.

IMG_0382 by nicholaschan.

There's 2 paper for Chinese paper, one is knowledge, reading and comprehension based and another is writing part. I like the writing part, I can just express everything according the feeling, with a little bit of Chinese novel style because I have been reading a lot Taiwanese novel lately.

The paper was really hard (for me), I don't have confident of getting an A but I really hope if I can get one, it will be like, un-describe-able excited. Don't wanna talk about the result, we'll see in March. If it's good, for sure I'll tell you guys, if it's bad, I'll… see first. =D

I had my special blogger friend to handle my camera on that day and he's Gen Yong. He came to school to help to rearrange and clean up the mess after the exam because he's in the school service group. I passed my camera to him and let him shoot around during the exam, it's better than laying inside my bag pack right?

IMG_0446 by nicholaschan.

On the last ten second, the exam classrooms were not quiet, everyone was counting down for the real END of SPM examination. It was memorable and fun. We ended everything in the middle of the day at 12.45pm. Gonna remember the time, it's a very historical time for me.

IMG_0422 by nicholaschan.

IMG_0453 by nicholaschan.

A very relaxing ending, I did not rush home. Took the time very slowly and drove to Simon's place for lunch and we went to karaoke in the afternoon! The usual stuff we always do after exam. I guess I can't do it next time already, because everyone is going to different colleges and school. So sad, a little bit.

One more thing again, Chinese paper 1 sucks.

He Bought a Canon 500D

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 09:09 AM PST

Let's talk about last week, I brought my brother to my favourite camera shop, the place where I bought my Canon EOS 400D.

I have been to a few camera shops to buy accessories, I realised that service is very important, there's shop on Penang Road made me felt fucked up because the people simply quote me price and was so not honest, I don't like that kind of service, I know what they are up to. So service is very important, be friendly to customer and they will come back again.

IMG_9581 by nicholaschan.

I personally recommends Matthew at Click N Snap if you are looking for camera accessories. Doing free advertising for him, wonder do I get any privilege or commission? Haha.

IMG_9587 by nicholaschan.

Brother wanted to look for a DSLR but he don't want to buy in Singapore because the price here is cheaper. We spent like a few hours in the shop because he couldn't make up his mind. After a long long consideration, he finally bought the Canon EOS 500D body with a Tamron 18-200 lens for RM3.5k.

IMG_9595 by nicholaschan.

I did not come home empty handed too, I bought a Chinese brand tripod, pretty solid, a clone to manfrotto. Tripod is a must need although we as a amateur don't always use it.

IMG_9604 by nicholaschan.

Very random! Haha. Suddenly feel like want to buy new DSLR body. My current favourite body is the Canon EOS 7D which can shoot super nice HD video and pictures.

SPM Day 8

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 08:42 AM PST

I have been gone for like a long long time. The days after SPM are busy, tired and very messy. All the things that I have done were so not organized, it's like happened or being called so suddenly which made me have so little time in front of the computer and with the social media. I need to plan what to do on the coming days, organized it and timetabled it, else I can hardly make things done.

So here I am, back to blogging and in this post, I want to write about the eighth day of my SPM examination.

IMG_5386 by nicholaschan.

This day was actually the last day for some of the students who didn't take Chinese paper. For me, it's ALMOST the last day, but still I had one more paper to go and that was Chinese paper. Yeah, real Chinese sits for Chinese paper. =D I pretty suck in Chinese writing, but I still like it a lot, it's fun!

IMG_5388 by nicholaschan.

So what we were sitting for on the 8th day was Chemistry paper. For me, I didn't know all, there's till few question that I totally don't know, and so, hopefully the result will be a nice one in March, expected result day is somewhere in March, as usual like past years.

IMG_5389 by nicholaschan.

IMG_5390 by nicholaschan.

During the lunch break, we went to Air Itam for lunch again. Want to thank Jin Sheng for the ride. =) The feeling during the lunch break was always nervous because the paper 3 in the afternoon is like, I don't know want how to say, difficult, but not really, easy, but can't be sure, it's all depends on how well your writing is, how creative you are. Paper 3 is an experiment planning and report writing paper.

We had like 30 minutes time before the paper started, I went to shoot around and some of them were still reading for the last minute, I didn't want to read already, the feel wasn't there, how well or how much motivation also don't want to read already.

Took photos of my place and Tee Jin's place. I place was on the first row, just in front of the whiteboard, so I didn't get to see any interesting things, except the white clean board.

p/s: I study in an all-boys school. =)

Pakatan pooh-poohs report

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 09:10 AM PST


The PAS president may have been misquoted that he is against registering Pakatan as an official coalition, say top leaders.
Malaysiakini, after failing to get a response from Hadi today, spoke to his political secretary Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, who shed light on the report and clarified that Hadi does not dispute Pakatan's decision to register as a coalition.

People want MACC to catch big fish, not small fry

People want MACC to catch big fish, not small fry

By IZATUN SHARI

PETALING JAYA: The time has come for real action from the Government to fight corruption instead of pussy-footing around, said Transparency International Malaysia president Tan Sri Dr Ramon Navaratnam.

He said if the Government continued talking without real action, people would get frustrated and disillusioned and eventually they would lash back via the ballot box.

"Don't pussy-foot," he said when commenting on recommendations in fighting graft at the two-day Government Transformation Pro­gramme open day last week.

Many members of the public who attended the programme had questioned why the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was only interested in catching the "small fry" and did not seemed to be interested in catching the jerung (sharks).

Corruption Lab leader Datuk Hashim Nordin, who is special officer to Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, in his reply had said it was a lot harder to catch the big fish as they tended to be more sophisticated and more professional in their acts.

Ramon said the programme had generated some good recommendations, including calls for the MACC to investigate politicians and businessmen and those who were living beyond their means without waiting for public complaints and for it to report directly to Parliament.

He said the law would have to be amended quickly to reflect the Government's urgency in fighting corruption.

He said until the "big fish" were taken to court and punished, people would continue to doubt the commission's sincerity.

Ramon, who is MACC panel of presentation and consultation chairman, said so far no top political leaders have been charged and convicted for corruption.

Citing the Port Klang Free Zone scandal as an example, he said although former Port Klang Authority general manager Datin Paduka O.C. Phang was charged in court, she was not the real "big fish" as there were people in higher levels.

Social Care Foundation chairman Tan Sri Robert Phang concurred that in the PKFZ scandal, bigwigs were named by the Public Account Committee but none of them were brought to court.

"Those implicated must be given a chance to explain in the court, not in Parliament. The rakyat want to know the whole truth."

He said the PKFZ scandal was an acid test for the Government and there was a need for political will to be executed without fear and favour.

Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye also said that despite many Government announcements to fight corruption, the people have yet to see real results.

Tun Mahathir, in his blog post entitled 'UMNO', said:

1. Pilihanraya Umum ke-13 hanya dua tahun lagi. Saya sedang meneliti reaksi rakyat terhadap UMNO dibawah pimpinan baru. Saya terkejut. Saya terkejut kerana seorang bekas pemimpin UMNO yang kanan telah meluahkan perasaannya dengan berkata "UMNO is rotten to the core" (UMNO busuk hingga ke ususnya).

IF Umno is rotten to the core, then the Government led by Umno is rotten to the core.

What to do with rotten apples except that they be thrown away! So, remember to throw them away in the next GE. 13 will be a lucky number for the rakyat!

Tis’ the Season to be Jolly

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 07:32 AM PST

Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you;
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to make you glad.

altantuya Najib: No cover up in missing jet engine case

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 07:53 AM PST

Husna Yusop and Bernard Cheah

PUTRAJAYA (dec 21, 2009) : Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak said today there was no cover-up of the case of the missing F-5E fighter jet engine owned by the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).


Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak chairing the 6th Malaysian Aerospace Council
(MAC) meeting. Also present (from left) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed,
Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Najib, who was Defence Minister at the time the theft was discovered, said the ministry reported the matter to the police immediately after realising the disappearance.

"Mindef took the position that we had to address this and take necessary action, even criminal action, against those involved. To the credit of the RMAF and Mindef, there was no intention of covering up at all. In fact, we went forward to the police. At that time I was minister in charge. I decided we should report it to the police," he said.

Speaking after chairing the 6th Malaysian Aerospace Council (MAC) meeting here, he said the ministry cooperated with the police in the investigation and would continue to do so.

The engine, reportedly worth about RM50 million, was detected missing in 2007 from the Matra 1 Warehouse at the Sungai Besi Airbase.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had reportedly said the engine was sold to an international company based in South Africa which was believed to have hired an agent to bring it out of the country.

The police said they had arrested four individuals, including RMAF officers.

It was also reported that a brigadier-general and 40 other armed forces personnel were sacked late last year over alleged involvement in the case.

Those sacked lost their pension and other benefits as former servicemen while others had to opt for early retirement but the brigadier-general reportedly retained his pension and other retirement benefits.

Asked why the brigadier-general retained his benefits, Najib said: "It depends on what he has done wrong. It's up to the air force and armed forces council to decide on that. We will wait until the full report comes out."

In George Town, Bukit Bendera member of Parliament Liew Chin Tong called for an external investigation on the disappearance of the F-5E fighter engine.


Liew Chin Tong

Liew, who also chairs the Pakatan Rakyat Shadow Committee for Defence, said there is a need to either establish a Parliamentary Select Committee or a Royal Commission, on this matter.

He said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's proposed internal inquiry is grossly inadequate.

"Internal inquiries in this country notoriously ensure the chain of responsibility does not extend beyond low-ranking scapegoats," he said in a press statement today.

"An external inquiry is required not only to determine the details of this shocking incident but also to uncover the conditions in our armed forces that allowed this to happen. It would reveal where accountability for such an incident should fall so appropriate action can be taken against those responsible," he said.

Liew said the implications of this case strike at the heart of the security sector of the nation.

"No one knows how many other military assets are stolen in this manner. This fighter jet engine could just be the tip of the iceberg," he said.

He added that the external inquiry must also determine if the fighter jet engine and other military assets were transferred to undesirable parties including Iran, potentially posing dangerous global consequences.

Daftar Pakatan: Hadi mungkin salah faham, kata Anwar

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 06:35 AM PST

Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata kesemua komponen dalam Pakatan Rakyat sememangnya telah bersetuju untuk mendaftarkan Pakatan Rakyat sebagai sebuah badan formal.

Ia kini dalam proses pendaftaran.

Sehubungan itu kata Anwar, Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang salah faham.

"Kami telah membaca kenyataan beliau dalam konteks yang sesuai kerana keputusan untuk mendaftarkan Pakatan Rakyat adalah persetujuan kami," kata Anwar yang juga penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat di sini hari ini.

Ketua Umum Pakatan Rakyat itu berkata beliau bersama Hadi dan penasihat DAP Lim Kit Siang telah pun menyatakan persetujuan untuk mendaftarkannya di Pendaftar Pertubuhan.

Anwar mendakwa kenyataan Hadi itu kemungkinan merujuk kepada pelan formilasi yang belum lagi dipersetujui dan ia akan mengambil masa.

Semalam Hadi berkata, pakatan pembangkang yang dianggotai PKR, DAP dan PAS belum lagi mendaftarkan pakatan itu sebagai sebuah parti politik kerana tidak mahu bertindak secara tergesa-gesa.

Beliau menjelaskan yang penting sekarang adalah untuk mencapai kejayaan dalam matlamat politik dan dapat bekerjasama dengan mengemukakan pandangan masing-masing walaupun wujud perbezaan ideologi. -MI


Pakatan tidak akan didaftar tergesa-gesa

KUALA LUMPUR, Dis 20 — Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang berkata pakatan pembangkang yang dianggotai PKR, DAP dan PAS belum lagi mendaftarkan pakatan itu sebagai sebuah parti politik kerana tidak mahu bertindak secara tergesa-gesa.

Beliau menjelaskan yang penting sekarang adalah untuk mencapai kejayaan dalam matlamat politik dan dapat bekerjasama dengan mengemukakan pandangan masing-masing walaupun wujud perbezaan ideologi.

Abdul Hadi turut menasihatkan penulis blog agar menyampaikan maklumat yang betul kerana mereka memainkan peranan penting dalam menyalurkan berita kepada masyarakat.

Para penulis blog perlu mencontohi sikap positif media barat kerana mereka merupakan satu bentuk media baru yang banyak membantu menyedarkan masyarakat sehingga memberi kemenangan kepada pakatan pembangkang, katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Konvensyen Blogger PAS anjuran Lajnah Penerangan dan Dakwah PAS Pusat di Markas Tarbiyyah PAS, Taman Melewar dekat sini hari ini. — Bernama


Ulasan GB

Blogger mendedahkan "fitnah yang benar" (istilah TGHH). Bukan menyebarkan fitnah yang palsu. Kalam Allah berjalan sepanjang masa. Kebenaran terpancar juga walau cuba ditutup dengan apa cara sekalipun. Kuasa Allah, siapa mampu menahannya?

GB bukan ustadz, bukan ulamak, bukan pimpinan parti. Tetapi GB yakin GB betul, termasuklah dalam hal kenyataan GB sebelum ini bahawa Lembaga Disiplin PAS itu bias.

Rasuah: SPRM Lepaskan Jerung, Tangkap Bilis

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 05:28 AM PST

Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) didesak segera menyiasat tokoh-tokoh politik dan ahli-ahli perniagaan yang hidup mewah melebihi kemampuan masing-masing dari segi kewangan.

"SPRM hendaklah menyiasat mereka ini dan jangan tunggu aduan daripada orang ramai dan perkara ini harus dilapor terus kepada Parlimen," kata Presiden Transparency International Malaysia, Tan Sri Dr Ramon Navaratnam.

Mengulas usaha kerajaan untuk memerangi rasuah pada Program Transformasi Kerajaan di Kuala Lumpur yang tamat semalam, beliau berkata, "sebahagian anggota masyarakat mempertikai langkah SPRM kerana hanya menangkap "ikan bilis" dan kelihatan tidak
berminat untuk menangkap "jerung".

"Sehingga SPRM menangkap "jerung-jerung" ini dan didakwa di mahkamah serta dijatuhkan hukuman, orang ramai terus berasa sangsi tentang keikhlasan suruhanjaya itu," terang beliau.

Ramon yang juga pengerusi panel penyampaian dan rundingan SPRM berkata, setakat ini tidak ada tokoh politik yang didakwa dan dijatuhkan hukuman kerana rasuah.

"Sebagai contoh katanya, dalam skandal PKFZ (Zon Bebas Pelabuhan Klang) hanya bekas pengurus besar LPK (Lembaga Pelabuhan Klang) O C Phang yang didakwa di mahkamah.

Phang bukanlah "ikan jerung" kerana ada lagi mereka yang lebih tinggi kedudukannya daripada beliau," jelasnya.

Sementara itu, Pengerusi Yayasan Prihatin Sosial, Tan Sri Robert Phang berkata, "dalam skandal PKFZ, nama-nama "ikan jerung" telah disebut hasil siasatan Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Wang Negara tetapi tidak ada sesiapa yang didakwa di mahkamah."

"Skandal PKFZ menjadi ujian getir buat kerajaan dan perlu kepada kesungguhan politik untuk bertindak tanpa bimbang dan pilih kasih," ujar beliau. -FMT


TRENGGANU – FAILED CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 05:45 AM PST

With four failed construction projects up the sleeves of the Trengganu government, now a fifth failed construction project only confirms the utter failure of the state government to closely monitor all projects carried out by the state government's assigned contractors and monitoring agencies.

If one has forgotten what these failed construction projects were, let me list them out in no order of significance:

1.The collapse of the roof of Sultan Mizan stadium.
2.The collapse of the roof of Sekolah Menengah Ajil.
3.The collapse of the roof of Kampung Puteh mosque.
4.The leakage of the Batu Buruk swimming pool that was constructed for SUKMA.

The latest (as reported on TV 3 news last night) is the collapse of the roof of the ongoing construction of a bus stop at Kuala Berang.

What does all these construction failures indicate? If one were to say that corruption is the root cause of all the failures, many I believe would echo the same. And if others were to say that the award of contracts were given to cronies of politicians, then I believe that many others too would echo the same.

Obviously, the failure I believe is also attributed to inexperienced contractors who are only out to make as much profits as possible. And in order to achieve this, they begin to 'cut corners' and in all probability, had used sub-standard construction materials. I am quite sure too that the monitoring agencies were not to be seen at the work sites.

The Trengganu state government obviously has not learned their lessons, and I personally view these failures as a curse that befalls on states whose government and leaders are irresponsible and corrupt. I do not think the leaders of the state have ever felt any shame or guilt for having seen failures upon failures while under their charge.

My only hope is that the crystal mosque that the Trengganu government has built as a mere showpiece for tourist, does not sink into the sea.

A new sensation: the miracle of the child-mother gave birth to a miracle

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 05:13 AM PST

The news of the miracle child from the most usual Dagestani family Yakubov, which appear on the skin of verses from the Koran, continues to excite the inhabitants of the republic.

As the correspondent of the Rosbalt village Krasano-Oktyabrskoe Kizlyar district became a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of believers and the curious. In house Yakubov daily over a hundred people come from all over the republic and neighboring regions in order to witness to the child's body showed through quotations from the Koran.
Correspondent Rosbalt witnessed yet another unusual phenomenon. Mother miracle child decided to tell about the miracles that are happening to her. According to Madinah, even before the birth of her second child her vision began to explain that she could not, but did not dare tell anyone for fear of being ridiculed.

But most real miracles with it began to occur after the birth of Ali.
"This is my first venture to say this, though now not sure that everything correctly perceive what I tell you. The fact that the quotes show through not only the body of my child. Just after his birth, I began to notice similar signs on his body. But I did not dare talk about it. Apparently, I gave you my family ", - told Madina. In fact, on this phenomenon to our correspondent said one of his aunts young mother. After persistent requests from Madina bared her belly and showed an inscription in Arabic. On her stomach for several days kept the word "Allag. But that's not all. Mom girl told how her daughter has recently started to cry during the prayer.

When Madina still finished praying, said that during the reading of prayers before her eyes began to slip lines, written in Arabic.
Her son, Ali has already passed the examination and at doctors, and have priests who can not yet explain the nature of the phenomenon. Madinah itself refuses to show their expertise and inscriptions only a close relative. However, if Ali during the manifestation of the inscriptions raised body temperature, then his mother all proceeds less smoothly.

On the day of the visit in 9-month-old baby has a new inscription. Another surprising aspect can be considered and that the child during the day almost crying and goes to the hands of all. But Madina noticed one peculiarity: after some people inscriptions disappear faster. Usually scriptures are stored in the body of the child 3-5 days. How long will these miracles continue until no one can say, even clergy.


The first witness this miracle became a local priest, who saw the baby on the chin Arabic word "Allah", and later the prayers and even whole passages from the Koran.
All the signs people have the opportunity to watch here. In the form of an Arabic ligature often occurs on the back, legs and arms, sometimes, as my mother - on her stomach and head. And, periodically one text is replaced by another.

At this time, say doctors, a baby's temperature rises to 40 C. Ali videoed and photographed and all that can be viewed in the yard. But, despite this, all visitors willing to look at the blue-eyed and surprisingly quiet child. Madina admitted that people were dismantled and all the clothing of the child. As a gift to bring new people.

Di Dada Karpal Ada Bulan, Bagaimana Pula Dada Pemimpin Pas Sendiri?

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 04:49 AM PST

Semasa ucapan penutup Konvensyen Pakatan Rakyat yang lalu pada Sabtu 19--12-09, Murshidul Am Pas Tok Guru Nik Aziz berucap dan beliau berkata 'di dada Karpal Singh pemimpin DAP yang kuat menentang negara Islam itu ada 'bulan'. Bulan yang dimaksudkan Tok Guru itu sudah tentulah bulan purnama lambang Pas.

Karpal Singh sudah tua dan tidak segagah dulu tapi beliau tetap dengan prinsipnya dan ideologi yang di bawa DAP. Karpal tidak pernah menimbulkan huru-hara sesama pimpinan Dap seperti yang berlaku dalam krisis kepimpinan dalam Pas yang membawa kepada hilangnya kepercayaan ahli dan penyokong Pas kepada sesetengah pimpinan dalam Pas yang berpunca daripada isu Kerajaan Perpaduan, pakatan dalam gelap, perjumpaaan antara pemimpin Pas dan Umno selepas pru-12 yang lalu untuk bentuk kerajaan secara senyap di Selangor atas nama Melayu-Islam tapi tidak jadi kenyataan.

Walaupun ada penafian demi penafian tapi akhirnya apabila Tok Guru desak diadakan Muktamar Khas untuk pecat mana-mana pemimpin yang cuba bersekongkol dengan Umno barulah semua ahli Pas dan penyokong Pas buka mata atas penafian demi penafian sebelum ini rupanya Pas sudah diambang perpecahan.

Maka diadakan Mensyuarat Khas dan seterusnya diadakan pula Seminar di Taman Melewar membuktikan memang wujud anasir -anasir dalam kepimpinan Pas yang condong kepada Umno. Profesor Aziz Bari dikecam hebat kerana bersetuju dengan pendapat Tok Guru memang patut dipecat pemimpin -pemimpin Pas yang merosakkan Pas dari dalam. Akhirnya Prof. Aziz Bari sendiri tidak lagi akan buat sebarang ulasan untuk Pas, walaupun beliau di lihat antara tokoh akademik yang menyokong Pas dari luar.

Adakah di dada semua pemimpin Pas solid ada bulan atau bulan yang keris ditengah-tengahnya? Bolehkah Tok Guru meneka pula di dada pemimpin Pas yang mana satu ada bulan bersisipkan keris telanjang Umno?


Jika dalam isu Altantuya PM Najib yang dibabitkan dalam kes tersebut pandai menyelamatkan diri, begitu juga dengan adiknya seperti yang didedahkan P.Bala, penyiasat persendirian, mereka berdua guna taktik diam dan senyap menyepi daripada menyentuh isu tersebut dan masih selamat hingga sekarang tidak di dakwa.Taktik yang sama digunakan oleh pemimpin Pas yang didakwa mahu bersama Umno, mereka diam tak kata apa, tak banyak bersuara untuk kutuk Umno pendek kata tak macam dulu. Dalam Parlimen pun senyap saja tidak berani menyerang Umno lagi. Mulut mereka telah dipalam dengan habuan dunia yang tak berapa nilainya.

Aku yakin ahli Pas dan penyokong Pas peringkat bawahan mereka tetap istiqamah dengan Pas dada mereka memang ada bulan sama macam dada Karpal Singh yang juga ada bulan. Mereka tidak akan berganjak daripada menyokong Pas walaupun ada pemimpin Pas timbulkan perbalahan dan kesangsian dalam hubungan dengan Pakatan Rakyat. Mati hidup balik pun dada mereka ada bulan tapi dada sesetengah pemimpin Pas belum tentu ada bulan. Mungkin dada mereka ada projek yang boleh kaut keuntungan untuk hidup mewah sama macam dada Umno yang berlambangkan keris telanjang yang penuh dengan segala projek.

Kekuatan Pas yang digembelengkan bersama parti Keadilan dan Dap semasa lawan Umno-Bn pru-12 itu mesti terus diperkukuhkan bukannya jadi busuk dan jijik setelah menang bergaya selepas pru-12 jadi macam-macam isu dalam Pas selepas itu menuding jari kepada orang lain sebagai fitnah. Jika Pas terus lemah adalah salah pemimpin Pas yang bercekengrama dengan Umno bukannya salah pihak lain yang mengkritik Pas. -misaimerah

Sibu In The Blue Ocean - Part 37

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 04:42 AM PST

In working towards building up a Blue Ocean environment, Sibuians have to adopt a Critical Blue Ocean Mindset which, in addition to the points listed in Part 35, involves shifts in culture, values and beliefs. In the observations of Tan Kee Hian, this entails the following:

1. On motivational drivers
-Sibuians should move from cold economics & reality to dreams & aspirations

2. On purpose of education
-We ought to shift our focus from qualifications (dual majors) to knowledge & competence

3. On tenure of learning
-Emphasis should be moved from schools & universities to lifelong

4. On careers
-Our mentality should be changed from proven paths to free to experiment

5. On risk appetite
-From adverse to high tolerance

6. On problem solving
-Sibuians have to move from prescriptive to exploratory

7. On lifestyle
-From pragmatic & utilitarian to creative & artistic

8. On value of people
-From units of production to human beings

The late Moses Eclen Maah Ajuh singing

Posted: 21 Dec 2009 04:21 AM PST

Recently I wrote that a friend sent me an e-mail showing the late Maah singing on Youtube.

The same friend taught me to embed the video in my post/blog. Thanks, Ben aka Pinolobo.

By the way, I forgot to mention that the late Maah also chose the name Eclen in his younger days.
