Cari Makan @ Ikea Cafeteria

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 07:00 AM PST

How do you pronounce IKEA? anyway, that's not important cause almost all of us know where is IKEA.

I went to IKEA Cafeteria for the past two Tuesday night before my Easy Step @ Fitness First The Curve. Every Tuesday is the meaty ball promotion day. 10 meaty ball only sell RM9+ which the normal price is RM10+... so actually you save RM1+ for every plate of meaty ball you purchase.

Besides the meaty ball, I also like the chicken wings which i don't need to fight for it like in YUEN. The chicken wings are crispy outside tender inside... Yummy~

There were couple more choices that i didn't have chance to try it because i always have this for my dinner. Go ahead to give this a try... It's yummy~

Weekend Roadtrip to Hat Yai from Penang

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 07:47 AM PST

It's been a long time I've never been to Hat Yai, Thailand already, very very very long time. I hardly have the memory in my mind. I know my parents always bring me to Hat Yai when I was small but my real Hat Yai trip would be this time which happened two weeks ago on the weekend.

IMG_3720 by nicholaschan.

Hat Yai located on the southern part of Thailand and it's just right across the border of the northern part of Malaysia. So they're connected, and dad drove all the way there, for like 2 hours. It's shorter than going to Kuala Lumpur from my Penang.

Dad didn't bring the Touch N Go card so have to go back to the ancient way of paying toll which is queue for ticket and pay by cash. It's smooth smooth all the way, no traffic jam or anything, passed by a lot of padi field which usually don't get to see when traveling north and the rest houses are not so pretty. Hehe.

The road trip was good, I slept all the way, it's so sleepy when sitting in the car for a long time and nothing to do. Didn't even bother to listen to the music, sleeping is good for pasting time.

We then arrived at place called Changloon, no idea where the place is, but I only know the name and at there, we were already very close to the Thai border.

IMG_3732 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3735 by nicholaschan.

This is the place where we stopped by for a coffee break, toilet break, money changing and the purchase of insurance for entering the Thai.

IMG_3742 by nicholaschan.

I didn't have toilet feel or anything, so I just wait my dad to settle the car insurance thing. It's like around RM14 per car for entering Thai and a car can stay in Thailand for 14 days, after that need to come out and renew again.

IMG_3753 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3758 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3760 by nicholaschan.

Then back to car and drive for like 10 minutes and we arrived the border where the immigration buildings of the two countries are.

IMG_3763 by nicholaschan.

After passing the Malaysian custom, we need to park our car and got out to go to chop our passport. I waited so long at the queue for like half an hour, very very very slow Thai officer. I was like OMG and the line was so long already.

Mom told me to place RM1 note or 10Baht inside the passport when passing it to the officer. I didn't know about this because the place didn't have any sign for us to pay 10Baht for going into Thai, I think this is tips for them.

After the long long wait at the immigration, finally I got cleared and got into Thailand. Mobile phone still showing Malaysian mobile at that time and after a while it only changed to Thai roaming mobile.

IMG_3765 by nicholaschan.

It's not Hat Yai yet, it's only I-don't-know-what-it's-called after the border. I still have to sit in the car for another 45 minutes to reach the city of Hat Yai.

There's no high rise building but you will see building almost the same height at like 7-10 floors and there's the city. After a long hour car ride, we arrived in Hat Yai, the city. We went to lunch first only then to look for the hotel. We didn't have any hotel booking in advance which made us encountered a little problem when looking for hotel.

IMG_3780 by nicholaschan. IMG_3781 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3782 by nicholaschan. IMG_3783 by nicholaschan.

Dad dropped grandma at a relative's house, only we went to look for hotel. We actually wanted to go for New Season Hotel, but then it's fulled. Then walked down a few blocks to May Flower Hotel, it's full again, in the end went to Novotel Central Hotel. Mom doesn't really like that hotel because she said the toilet is not very clean. They like New Season Hotel more.

IMG_3786 by nicholaschan.

Now we only know that so many Malaysian like to come to Hat Yai on the weekend and we need to book the hotel in advance.

IMG_3789 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3787 by nicholaschan. IMG_3791 by nicholaschan.

Hat Yai is much alike like other place in Thailand, like Phuket and Bangkok, they all look the same with many cables and not so pretty building and same Thai architecture.

IMG_3794 by nicholaschan.

IMG_3795 by nicholaschan.

After we parked the car at the hotel carpark, checked in, dropped all our luggage in the hotel room, we went out to walk! Dad went to massage, mom went to shopping, I went to walkaround. Stay tune!

The War Against the Infidels

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 06:20 AM PST

In 2001, the monumental 6th-century buddhas of Bamiyan were dynamited on orders from Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar. The United States and other Western governments issued protests. Afghanistan's Islamist rulers shrugged them off.

In 2010, Al-Kifl, the tomb of the Prophet Ezekiel, near Baghdad, is being desecrated. On the tomb are inscriptions in Hebrew and an ark in which a Torah was displayed centuries ago. Iraq's Antiquities and Heritage Authority, under pressure from Islamists, is erasing the Hebrew words, removing the Hebrew ornaments, and planning to build a mosque on top of the grave.

So far, we're hearing protests from almost no one. But this is not just another "Where is the outrage?" story. The larger and more alarming trend is that, in a growing number of Muslim-majority countries, a war is being waged against non-Muslim minorities.

Where non-Muslim minorities already have been "cleansed" — as in Afghanistan and Iraq — the attacks are against their memory. Ethnic minorities also are being targeted: The genocidal conflict against the black Muslims of Darfur is only the most infamous example.

Connect these dots: In Nigeria this week, Muslim youths set fire to a church, killing more than two dozen Christian worshippers. In Egypt, Coptic Christians have been suffering increased persecution including, this month, a drive-by shooting outside a church in which seven people were murdered. In Pakistan, Christian churches were bombed over Christmas. In Turkey, authorities have been closing Christian churches, monasteries, and schools, and seizing Christian properties. Recently, churches in Malaysia have been attacked, too, provoked by this grievance: Christians inside the churches were referring to God as "Allah." How dare infidels use the same name for the Almighty as do Muslims!

In response to all this, Western journalists, academics, diplomats, and politicians mainly avert their eyes and hold their tongues. They pretend there are no stories to be written, no social pathologies to be documented, no actions to be taken. They focus instead on Switzerland's vote against minarets and anything Israel might be doing to prevent terrorists from claiming additional victims.

Many Muslims, no doubt, disapprove of the persecution of non-Muslims. But in most Muslim-majority countries, any Muslim openly opposing the Islamists and their projects risks being branded an apostate. And under the Islamist interpretation of Sharia, Islamic law, apostates deserve death.

Not so long ago, the Broader Middle East was a diverse region. Lebanon had a Christian majority for centuries but that ended around 1990 — the result of years of civil war among the country's religious and ethnic communities. The Christian population of Turkey has diminished substantially in recent years. Islamists have driven Christians out of Bethlehem and other parts of the West Bank; almost all Christians have fled Gaza since Hamas's takeover.

There were Jewish communities throughout the Middle East for millennia. The Jews of Iran trace their history back more than 2,700 years, but about eight out of ten Iranian Jews have emigrated since the 1979 Islamist Revolution; only about 40,000 remain.

The Jews of what is now Saudi Arabia were wiped out as Muhammad and his followers established a new religion and began to build a new empire in the 7th century A.D. But Jewish communities survived elsewhere until after World War II, when Jews were forced to abandon their homes in Iraq (more than a fourth of Baghdad's population was Jewish), Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen, and other countries.

In many cases, they were driven out by Muslims furious over the establishment of the modern state of Israel. But how odd is it to protest the creation of a safe haven and homeland for Jews by making your own Jewish citizens homeless and stateless?

In 1947, Pakistan also was founded as a safe haven — for Indian Muslims who did not want to be ruled by Hindus once the British left the subcontinent. The country's founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, was determined that while Pakistan would have an Islamic identity, it would be tolerant of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Parsees, and others — as much as 20 percent of the population at independence. It hasn't worked out that way and, as a result, non-Muslim minorities today constitute only about 3 percent of Pakistan's population. By contrast, non-Hindus constitute almost 20 percent of India's population, with Muslims the largest minority at 13 percent.

When the dots are connected, the picture that emerges is not pretty: An "Islamic world" in which terrorists are regarded often with lenience, sometimes with respect, and occasionally with reverence, while minority groups face increasing intolerance, persecution, and "cleansing," and where even their histories are erased. And we in the West are too polite, too "politically correct," and perhaps too cowardly to say much about it. — Clifford D.

Dr M: If they can make Avatar, they can make 9/11

Mahathir: 9/11 was staged


KUALA LUMPUR: There is strong evidence that the Sept 11 attacks on the United States that killed nearly 3,000 could have been "staged" as an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Show of support: Dr Mahathir greeting Wael A. Saqqa, a participant from Jordan, at the conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

"I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is evidence that the attacks were staged.

"If they can make Avatar, they can make anything," the former prime minister told a press conference here yesterday after delivering his speech at the General Conference for the Support of Al-Quds to aid the Palestinians.

He said killing innocent people to provide an excuse for war was not new to the US.

"But whether real or staged, the 9/11 attacks have served the United States and Western countries well. They have an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world," he added.

Mahathir also criticised US President Barack Obama for failing to fulfil his promises concerning the country's commitment in West Asia, including his promise to resolve the prevailing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"I am a bit disappointed because so far none of his promises have been kept. He promised to get out from Afghanistan but he ended up sending more troops there instead.

"He promised to close down Guantanamo but he has not closed down Guantanamo.

"It is quite easy to promise during election time but you know there are forces in the United States which prevent the President from doing some things. One of the forces is the Jewish lobby, AIPAC," he said.

On another issue, Dr Mahathir said he supported the plan to set up the inter-faith council as it could help promote effective understanding among religious groups in the country.

Such a council, he said, would provide a platform for people to talk about sensitive religious matters reasonably without taking it to the streets.

Earlier in his speech, Dr Mahathir spoke about the Palestinians' claim on their land in West Asia which he said was based on legitimate grounds.

He said one of the greatest injustices done was to take Palestinian land to give to the Jews to create the state of Israel.

Later in Putrajaya, Dr Mahathir said the opinions of "powerful nations" should not deter Malaysia from continuing with its effort to help Palestine.

He was speaking at a ceremony to hand over certificates of appreciation to nine Malaysians who were part of the Viva Palestina humanitarian aid convoy to Gaza.

Frankly, I've not watched Avatar but I don't need to watch it to deem Mahathir's statement that 9/11 was staged as DUMB!

Muslims Angry Over U.S. Military 'Jesus' Rifles

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 03:29 AM PST

In Malaysia Non Muslims are not allowed to use the word" Allah", now the use of Christian scriptures in gun sights are offensive to Muslim groups in the US. Muslim groups reacted angrily Wednesday after it emerged that the U.S. military is using combat rifle sights inscribed with coded Biblical references. Council on American-Islamic Relations said "The use of military equipment with hidden Bible references sends the false message to Muslims worldwide that we are at war with Islam." Army officials have said they will investigate whether a Michigan defense contractor violated federal procurement rules by stamping references to Bible verses on the gun sights used by American forces to kill enemy fighters in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Markings on the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, which is standard issue to U.S. special operations forces, include "JN8:12," a reference to John 8:12: "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life,'" according to the King James version of the Bible.

The Trijicon Reflex sight is stamped with 2COR4:6, a reference to part of the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians: "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ," the King James version reads.

A spokesman for U.S. Central Command, which manages military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, said the sights don't violate the ban on proselytizing because there's no effort to distribute the equipment beyond the U.S. troops who use them.

"This situation is not unlike the situation with U.S. currency," said the spokesman, Air Force Maj. John Redfield. "Are we going to stop using money because the bills have 'In God We Trust' on them? As long as the sights meet the combat needs of troops, they'll continue to be used. "Munson, Trijicon's sales director, said the practice of putting Bible references on the sites began nearly 30 years ago by Trijicon's founder, Glyn Bindon, who was killed in a plane crash in 2003. His son Stephen, Trijicon's president, has continued the practice. In full....

Ahli Parlimen BN Ponteng

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 04:40 AM PST

Mungkinkah budaya ponteng dikalangan wakil rakyat BN merupakan tabiat mereka atau wujud bentuk protes berterusan terhadap kepimpinan Perdana Menteri Najib Razak?

Jika dalam tragedi 14 Disember 2009 menyaksikan sejumlah besar daripada Ahli Parlimennya (MP) ponteng di Dewan Rakyat, situasi itu nampaknya gagal dijadikan iktibar oleh mereka samada sengaja atau buat-buat lupa, tidak pula diketahui.

Terbaru, tiga MP BN ponteng lagi dan kali ini melibatkan lawatan pemimpin dari luar negara yang gagal disambut oleh mereka sehingga menyaksikan pemimpin dari Korea itu menyindir sikap berkenaan.

Ketiga-tiga MP itu ialah MP Pulai, Nur Jazlan Mohamed; MP Sabak Bernam, Abd. Rahman Bakri dan MP Putatan, Marcus Mojigoh yang sepatutnya hadir bagi mewakili BN bagi menyambut kunjungan hormat Naib Speaker Parlimen Korea Selantan, Moon Hee Sang ke Parlimen semalam.

Malah Moon Hee Sang turut memuji kehadiran MP Pakatan Rakyat (PR) seperti yang diakui oleh Timbalan Yang Dipertua (TYDP) Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Ronald Kiandee.

"Lebih memalukan, ketiadaan wakil BN itu dipersoalkan oleh Hee Sang kerana hanya wakil pembangkang sahaja yang hadir iaitu Ahli Parlimen Wangsa Maju, Wee Choo Keong dan ahli Parlimen Bukit Bintang, Fong Kui Loon.

"Ia menjadi ketara kerana rombongan Korea Selatan itu terdiri daripada wakil kerajaan dan pembangkang,'' tegasnya Kiandee.

Terdahulu, dalam tragedi 14 Disember tahun lalu, sejumlah 74 daripada 137 MP BN ponteng di Dewan Rakyat yang menyaksikan Bajet 2010 hanya diluluskan dengan kelebihan majoriti tiga undi.

Undi kemenangan BN itu termasuklah melalui bosnya, Najib Razak bersama timbalannya, Muhyiddin Yasin yang hadir dalam keadaan tergesa-gesa pada malam itu.

Lebih menarik, MP PR berjaya mencatatkan kehadiran 78 peratus berbanding BN hanya 48 peratus.

Turut ponteng pada malam pengundian itu ialah sejumlah besar Menteri bersama timbalan menteri.

Mengikut konvensyen yang diamalkan di negara lain, termasuk negara Komanwel, Parlimen akan dibubarkan dan Perdana Menteri boleh digantikan jika bajet nasional tidak diluluskan.

Selepas peristiwa itu, Najib kononnya mahu menghukum anak buahnya yang ponteng itu namun sehingga kini tindakan itu gagal dilaksanakan.

Untuk rekod, ini merupakan kali ke dua MP Pulai, Nur Jazlan Mohamed dan MP Putatan, Marcus Mojigoh ponteng selepas perangai sama ditonjolkan pada sesi Dewan Rakyat 14 Disember lalu. -erapakatan

Program Subsidi Beras Poilitik Murahan Noh Omar

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 03:14 AM PST

Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani Malaysia, Datuk Noh Omar dilihat terdesak memenangi hati rakyat khususnya Selangor setelah reputasi Umno-Barisan Nasional merundum pada pilihanraya umum ke 12.

Menurut Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Sri Muda, Mat Shuhaimi Shafie, matlamat utama Noh Omar adalah semata-mata mahu mengangkat dirinya sebagai orang nombor dua di Selangor selepas Najib Razak, Pengerusi BN dan Umno negeri.

Shuhaimi berkata taktik Noh Omar melaksanakan program Subsidi Beras Untuk Rakyat atau Subur ini mendedahkan politik murahan yang dibawa beliau untuk meraih sokongan.

"Beliau terdesak untuk memastikan yang sokongan itu beralih kepada dia, maka dia menggunakan duit kementerian, saya nak tegaskan duit kementerian itu ialah duit rakyat, bukan duit daripada poket Dato Noh Omar sendiri, jadi duit ini dia tidak boleh dibelanjakan program di kepala otak dia saja, tak boleh sebab ini duit rakyat, dia mesti belanjakan di seluruh negara. Melalui program Subur memanglah dia katakan dia belanjakan di seluruh negara dan sebagainya, tetapi dari segi pelaksanaan, kita tidak nampak yang pelaksanaan itu diadakan untuk membantu rakyat, melainkan hanya untuk menaikkan imej Menteri Pertanian, iaitu Dato Noh Omar sendiri", jelas Shuhaimi.

Beliau bercakap demikian ketika ditemui di pejabatnya di Kota Kemuning baru-baru ini.

Shuhaimi berkata agensi persekutuan diperalatkan untuk membeli sokongan pengundi bagi Umno.

"Apa yang Noh Omar buat macam penubuhan Majlis Pembangunan, dia Umno ni mereka buat 3 perkara, pertamanya melalui ICU di bawah JPM mereka mengagihkan keuntungan ini melalui 3 agensi, melalui Kementerian Pertanian yang ada program Subur, MPPP dan melalui Jabatan Pembangunan Negeri", ujarnya lagi.

Kata Shuhaimi, rakyat Selangor menuntut keterbukaan dalam segala aspek apabila menolak Umno kerana gagal mempamerkan pentadbiran yang telus dan tiada kebertanggungjawaban khususnya pengagihan peruntukan kerajaan pusat kepada negeri ini.

"Rakyat negeri Selangor menolak Umno, kalau rakyat Selangor menyokong Umno, mereka tindakan meletakkan Kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat sebagai pemerintah, jadi orang-orang yang dilantik di MPPP, Subur, Majlis Pembangunan ICU, ini adalah orang-orang yang telah ditolak rakyat daripada segi kebertanggungjawaban, ketelusan itu pun sudah terkeluar, orang yang minoriti yang mengagih-agihkan peruntukan kepada orang lain, jadi daripada segi kuasa dia tidak ada kuasa untuk melakukan itu", tambahnya lagi. - MOHD SAHRULNIZAM MOHD ZAIN -TVS

UMNO Tidak Hadir Di Persidangan Majlis Agama Islam dan Adat Melayu Perak

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 02:35 AM PST

Dewan Pemuda PAS Perak menunggu kenyataan balas daripada Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Slim, Datuk Mohd Khusairi Abdul Talib yang juga Setiausaha Badan Perhubungan Umno Perak berkaitan isu perlantikan Ahli Jawatankuasa (AJK) Masjid.

Menurut Naib Ketuanya, Salman Saleh berkata, pada Persidangan Ke-169 Majlis Agama Islam dan Adat Melayu Perak (MAIAMP) yang dipengerusikan oleh Raja Muda Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah (gambar) baru-baru ini, Kerajaan negeri Barisan Nasional (BN) tidak menghantar wakil.

"Ini disebabkan (Menteri Besar lantikan BN), Zambry Abdul Kadir selaku Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Agama Islam telah mengikuti rombongan Datuk Seri Najib Razak ke Arab Saudi," kata beliau kepada Free Malaysia Today, kelmarin.

Beliau menerangkan, walaupun Penasihat Agama Islam kepada Menteri Besar Datuk Najmuddin Alias Al-Hafiz hadir sebagai wakil, tapi beliau tidak layak untuk hadir dalam persidangan tersebut.

"Di sini jelas Umno tidak mementingkan urusan agama Islam ditambah pula dengan suasana tegang berkaitan kalimah 'Allah' dan berbagai isu agama Islam yang perlu ditangani segera," katanya.

Katanya, Umno seolah-olah tidak menghormati Raja Dr Nazrin Shah semasa persidangan tersebut berlangsung kerana tiada seorang pun wakilnya yang hadir dalam persidangan berkenaan.

"Mengenai isu AJK masjid yang belum selesai, jelas memperlihatkan bahawa Umno tidak serius dalam perkembangan agama Islam di Negeri Perak khasnya.

"Dewan Pemuda mendesak supaya Umno menghormati keputusan perlantikan AJK masjid yang telah diperkenan oleh Raja Dr Nazrin Shah dan tidak menggunakan saluran media untuk mencari kesalahan yang sepatutnya dibawa semasa persidangan tersebut," tegasnya. -FMT

2 Lagi Surau Jadi Mangsa Serangan.

Posted: 21 Jan 2010 01:57 AM PST

Nampaknya serangan demi serangan ke atas rumah ibadat berlaku di negara ini. Dan polis kelihatan belum berjaya membendungnya.

Terbaru surau Silaturrahim Jln Ismail dan surau Pt. Beting Jln. Salleh, Muar JOHOR jadi mangsa. Surau Silaturahim di Jalan Ismail mengalami kebakaran pada langsir dan cermin manakala Surau Parit Beting pula mengalami kebakaran di ruang solat wanita, permaidani dan pintu.

"Ada tanda hitam pada pintu," kata Timbalan Ketua Polis Daerah Muar Lee Choon Guan di surau Parit Beting.

Tetapi pihak polis mengambil langkah berhati-hati dalam mengesahkan sama ada dua kejadian terbaru ini juga ada kaitan dengan isu kontroversi kalimah "Allah".

"Pasukan forensik saya ada menemui kesan-kesan minyak, yang kemungkinan dibawa dari luar," kata beliau.

Terdahulu Ketua Polis Daerah Muar, Mohammed Nasir Ramli enggan mengesahkan sama ada insiden ini adalah akibat tindakan khianat.

YB Gwee Adun Bentayan, bersama YB Dr. Sheikh Ibrahim Adun Sg. Abong, YB Dr. Mohammad Taslim Adun Maharani dan beberapa jawatankuasa dari DAP dan PAS telah melawat di tempat kejadian tersebut pada tengahari tadi. Semasa lawatan, pihak dari ke tiga-tiga dun telah memberi sumbangan untuk membaiki kerosakan.

Jawatankuasa surau memberitahu kemungkinan kebakaran dilakukan pada waktu pagi sekitar 2.00pagi hingga 4.00.pagi. Jawatankuasa surau ini mengucapkan terima kasih diatas kunjungan dari YB dan bersyukur kerana surau ini masih boleh digunakan untuk solat.

Jawatankkuasa surau merasa kecewa kerana ada manusia yang sanggup melakukan perbuatan keji ini terutama di tempat ibadat. Pn. Rukamah Samon yang datang ke surau jam 11.00pagi merasa terkejut bila tempat beliau mengajar mengaji kepada kanak-kanak telah terbakar dan tingkap cermin pechah. Beliau terus melaporkan perkara tersebut kepada Pengerusi surau. Pihak polis turut hadir di tempat kejadian dan sedang membuat siasatan.

Sejak 8 Januari lalu, beberapa tempat ibadat- sebahagian besarnya gereja - menjadi sasaran serangan bom api dan perbuatan vandalisme.

Ianya dipercayai ekoran keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi pada 31 Disember lalu yang mengetepikan larangan kerajaan ke atas bukan Islam daripada menggunakan perkataan Allah sebagai terjemahan bagi perkataan 'God'.

Ekoran itu, mahkamah berkenaan memutuskan bahawa mingguan Katholik, Herald, boleh menggunakan perkataan Allah dalam versi bahasa Malaysianya.

Bagaimanapun, keputusan itu ditangguhkan sementara menunggu selesai rayuan oleh kerajaaan terhadapnya.

Di Bawab BN, Rakyat Terbeban Dengan Rantaian Kenaikan Harga

Posted: 20 Jan 2010 10:29 PM PST

Zaman inflasi tinggi kian menjelang, apabila harga petrol dan tol dijangka melonjak, menjejaki langkah kenaikan harga gula dan roti. Pengumuman kerajaan pada awal tahun ini, bahawa sistem "dua harga petrol" akan dilaksanakan pada 1 Mei, ditambah pula beberapa lebuh raya yang akan dikaji semula harga tolnya pada Januari tahun ini, dijangka akan menambah beban rakyat.

Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Ismail Sabri Yaakob telah mengumumkan pada 7 Januari, bahawa kerajaan akan memperkenalkan satu mekanisme harga petrol untuk memastikan subsidinya hanya dinikmati mereka yang berpendapatan rendah, atau betul-betul memerlukannya.

Harga petrol pastinya naik

Mereka yang menikmati subsidi bahan api ini akan membeli minyak dengan harga selepas ditolak subsidi, sementara mereka yang tidak lagi layak untuk menikmati subsidi, perlu membayar mengikut harga pasaran tanpa subsidi.

Menurut Ismail Sabri Yaakob (gambar kanan), subsidi kerajaan untuk petrol RON95 buat masa ini adalah 30 sen/liter, lantas menurunkan harga minyak ini kepada paras RM1.80/liter. Dengan kata lain, rakyat tempatan mahupun warga asing yang tidak layak menikmati subsidi, akan membeli petrol dengan harga RM2.10 atau lebih tinggi.

Walaupun golongan berpendapatan rendah masih terlindung dengan subsidi menurut Ismail Sabri Yaakob, namun arus inflasi dijangka tidak dapat terelak lagi. Jika ditinjau dari pengalaman lalu, setiap kali kenaikan harga minyak akan memberi tekanan dari segi inflasi kepada semua lapisan masyarakat.

Misalnya, apabila harga minyak antarabangsa melonjak kepada US Dollar 130 pada tahun 2008, kerajaan Malaysia telah menaikkan harga minyak dari RM1.92 kepada RM2.70, bersamaan 78 sen atau 40.6%. Lantaran itu, kadar inflasi yang berada di bawah paras 3% pada awal tahun, telah melonjak kepada 8.5% pada Julai.

Menurut maklumat dari Kementerian Kewangan, sewa rumah, bekalan air dan elektrik, gas semula jadi dan bahan api yang lain mencakupi nisbah 21.4% dalam Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Kesan Inflasi daripada kenaikan harga minyak

Pada hakikatnya, kesan yang paling besar terhadap inflasi bukannya datang dari harga minyak, tetapi kesan rantaiannya, khususnya dalam sektor pengangkutan dan makanan. Antaranya, kadar inflasi mencecah kemuncak 8.5% pada Julai 2008, disebabkan kos pengangkutan yang melonjak secara mendadak sebanyak 22%. Kos pengangkutan mencatat 15.9% dalam CPI, malah sektor pengangkutan mencecah 41% dalam kepenggunaan sumber tenaga negara. Pendek kata, naik turunnya harga minyak memberi kesan yang besar terhadap sektor pengangkutan.

Pada masa yang sama, produk komersial dan perkhidmatan dalam setiap lapisan ekonomi melibatkan pengangkutan, yang membawa kesan rantaian terhadap semua keperluan harian, termasuklah makanan, pakaian, sehinggalah barang kehendak seperti kereta, rumah dan sebagainya.

Jikalau ditambah makanan dan minuman bukan alkohol (31.4%), pengangkutan (15.9%), dan sewa rumah, bekalan air dan elektrik, bahan api yang lain (21.4%), kesemuanya mencatat jumlah 68.7% daripada CPI.

Ringkasnya, apabila harga minyak bertambah dari RM1.80 kepada RM2.10, kos tambahan yang ditanggung oleh rakyat bukan hanya 30 sen/liter, tetapi inflasi yang berlaku berikutan kesan rantaian kenaikan harga minyak.

Inflasi lebih tinggi daripada perangkaan rasmi

Pada hakikatnya, inflasi yang menimpa rakyat sebenarnya lebih tinggi daripada perangkaan rasmi yang diumumkan. Misalnya, perangkaan rasmi yang diumumkan pada Julai 2008 adalah 8.5%, setelah kenaikan harga minyak secara mendadak dari RM1.92 kepada RM2.70.

Namun demikian, perangkaan yang tidak rasmi menunjukkan kos pembekal bahan mentah melonjak 10-20%, malah harga makanan di warong melonjak dalam lingkungan 25-40%. Bahkan Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) juga menaikkan harga elektrik pada kadar 26%, tahun 2008 dengan alasan penambahan kos bahan api.

Ketika ditemuramah, Gabungan Persatuan-Persatuan Pengguna-Pengguna Malaysia (FOMCA) menyatakan kenaikan harga minyak melambungkan kos pengangkutan, menjurus kepada kenaikan harga bahan mentah dan berakhir dengan kenaikan harga makanan. Oleh itu, peniaga warong terpaksa menaikkan harga.

Secara puratanya, rakyat Malaysia membelanjakan 40% pendapatannya untuk makanan. Kenaikan harga minyak telah menyebabkan mereka berbelanja lebih (lebih daripada 50%) untuk makanan. Antaranya, disebabkan ketidaksempurnaan sistem pengangkutan awam, penduduk bandar perlu bergantung kepada kereta untuk bergerak dari satu tempat ke satu tempat.

Hidup semakin menyempit apabila kebanyakan penduduk bandar makan di luar, secara langsung telah menjadi golongan yang paling merasai bahang inflasi. Seandainya dikira mengikut pendapatan RM2,500 sebulan, kenaikan harga minyak dari RM1.80 kepada RM2.10 akan melonjakkan perbelanjaan petrol golongan menengah ini sebanyak 17%; ditambah pula kenaikan harga makanan sebanyak 5-10%. Jelas, pilihannya makin kurang, dengan pendapatan yang terhad ini. (Bahagian pertama, bersambung) -MR

I would like to ask you a question. Just how many things can you stuff into a 6" x 6" square drainage outlet hole like the one you see above? I'll tell you the answer in a bit.

Yesterday evening, just after both wifey and me finished preparing dinner, I happen to notice that the kitchen drain was clogged and the water was backing up. Drats, I just cleared that clog a month or so ago.

I quickly ran to the store room and took out my drain clearing snake pipe, I have no idea what it's called, it's that long carbonate like thingy plumbers use to poke (for want of a better word ... hahaha) the drains to clear up clogs.

But after poking (I can't help but laugh at this word ... LOL!) the drain countless times, the water refuse to subside and in fact it even got worse. Ok, this was not good. Normally a quick poke (hahaha!) and shove would do the trick.

With the water still backing out of the kitchen drain and causing a foul smelling mess, I ran out to the main outlet outside the house where all the kitchen and downstairs bathroom pipes lead. That's when I was greeted by an even worse foul smelling odour that it made me almost puke. Trust me, it was that foul.

Water was seeping out from the outlet hole into the drain when it shouldn't be doing that cos it's suppose to go straight into the sewage tanks outside. The water looked as horrible as it smelt. Something must be blocking the outlet I surmised (duh!).

I wanted to call the plumber but wifey said why not try to fix it myself first and if I can't or screwed it up even worse, then we'll call the plumber. Besides it would cost quite a bit to call the plumber at that time of day.

So I started digging into the hole with the 'snake pipe' thingy and no matter how much I dug into it, the water refused to flow to the proper place. And worse yet, it was stinking up the place. So I decided to do the unimaginable and stick my arm into that rancid smelling, foul looking muck and feel around to figure out what was blocking the outlet.

Trust me, I had my misgivings. The water was so thick with brown crud and oily looking stuff that I was afraid my arm would melt the moment I stuck it inside. But I had no choice. It was getting worse. Summoning up every ounce of courage I had, I stuck my hand right into that hole (the very same one you see up there in the picture) and started feeling around.

The hole was so deep that I practically had my hand up to my elbow deep in foul smelling muck that was just inches away from my face! I tried hard not to gag and I could feel tons and tons of stuff in there. Then I started pulling out stuff and the first thing I pulled out was so shocking that I called out to wifey to come have a look.

The moment she saw what I pulled out, she was speechless. We both looked at each other and shook our heads in disbelieve. I actually pulled out a broom, don't ask me how the heck it got in there cos I have no idea. By the way we just shifted into this house a few months back, just so you don't think we put the broom in there.

But even with the broom out, the water was still stuck. Damn, I had to stick my arm in there again. By this time I was splashed with waste water and was already looking like sewage myself. So I stick my arm in again and lo and behold, I pull out a pouch! No words can describe my shock. I'm talking about a tiny 6" x 6" drain and about 1 1/2 feet deep and so far I've pulled out a broom and a pouch.

But that still doesn't do the trick. I keep on digging with arm into that muck. Wifey is intrigued by now. She stands there (albeit quite a distance from me cos of the smell) and waits to see what I pull out. And like a magician on a stage with his pulling out a rabbit from his hat trick, I managed to bring out a pestle (yes, a pestle!), a couple of CD's, a CD case, a few Tupperware covers, a matchbox car, a toothbrush, a cultured milk drink bottle, some unidentifiable metal stuff and a host of other stuff, not forgetting the hardened curd!

The amount of things I pulled out from there was so astounding that wifey said she wouldn't be surprised if I pulled out an MPV next ... LOL! I was seriously at a loss for words. I wonder just what the heck the previous owners were doing that they managed to get all that junk into that small space.

But at least that cleared up the problem though I was so smelly and filthy after the ordeal that wifey told me to disinfect myself thoroughly before she would come anywhere near me ... hahaha ... Trust me, I was so filthy with sewage all over me that I was afraid of touching myself (urrrmmm, somehow that didn't sound right ... LOL!).

And so folks, to answer my own question of just how many things can you stuff into a 6" x 6" square drainage outlet hole? The answer is a broom, a pestle, some CD's, a CD cover, a couple of Tupperware covers, a matchbox car, a toothbrush, a cultured milk drink bottle, a couple of unidentifiable metal pieces and loads of hardened curd.

P.S. - No matter how many times I washed my hands, it still smelled of sewage all night ... Uggghhhhh!

Kompilasi Aduhai Hawa!

"Manusia mungkin berada dalam keadaan gembira, dan manusia lainnya berusaha untuk menyedarkan. Itu memang usaha yang baik. Namun keadaan ini mungkin buruk baginya, dan kesedaran mungkin baik baginya. Membangunkan orang yang tidur, baik atau buruk bergantung kepada siapa yang melakukannya. Jika si pembangun adalah orang yang memiliki pencapaian tinggi, maka akan meningkatkan keadaan orang lain. Jika tidak, maka akan memburukkan kesedaran orang lain." Rumi

Kenapa perempuan perlu bergantung pada abangnya? Kenapa wanita perlu terus-terusan bergantung pada suaminya?? Keadaan saling bergantung ini hanya memberi peluang kepada yang lebih berkuasa mengawal pasangannya. Wujudnya dikotomi antara superior dan inferior. Masing-masing bukan hamba! Tidak lelaki tidak perempuan. Kerana kehadiran wanita dan lelaki BUKAN untuk merendahkan (degrade) satu sama lain, tapi agar mereka dapat sama-sama menonjol. Prinsip seperti ini yang harusnya ada dalam setiap perkahwinan iaitu mutual friends atau shared responsibilities bukannya wanita diamnya di rumah

Innocent Creature!

manakala lelaki bekerja di luar.
Kenapa perempuan sering dikatakan lemah? Stigma seperti inilah yang selalu dibenarkan dengan kenyataan hawa yang dijadikan daripada tulang rusuk Adam. Tetapi kenapa tulang rusuk, tidak tulang lain? Tulang rusuk dipilih kerana ia yang paling dekat dengan hati—disimbolkan kedudukan yang istimewa untuk kaum hawa. Bukannya tulang di kaki, tangan… kaum hawa membawa pengaruh yang besar kepada lelaki kerana hati adalah raja badan manusia. Jika baik hati itu, baik segalanya. Kaum hawa hadir kerana kaum adam memerlukan sokongan. Jika diperhalusi, lelaki yang tidak lengkap malah lemah hingga harus disokong perempuan bukan? Tapi, kami atau lebih tepat lagi aku telah menolak ayat genre ini. Kerana aku dan kamu bukan lelaki atau perempuan tetapi manusia yang tidak pernah akan mahu dibezakan atas alat genital. Perbezaan (gender) harusnya dilihat berlainan bukan berlawanan. Bukan sebagai pelindung-dilindung, kuat-lemah, rasional-emosional dan berbagai-bagai. Itu tidak adil. Perempuan dan lelaki haram dilihat sebagai simbol jahat dan baik. Perbezaan itu diraikan diiktiraf dihargai dan dihormati sebagai manusia yang punya prestasi dan ekuiti yang sama tanpa ada diskriminasi gender. Yang dituntut adalah hubungan mu'awadhah bukannya patriarki. Kerana hubungan yang berat sebelah hanya akan melahirkan patologi dalam masyarakat.

Ketepikan soal-soal hadis, Quran, pesan-pesan..manusia walaupun tidak dinisbahkan atas aturan-aturan ini, pasti tidak ingin akan penindasan. Itu hal yang paling mendasar. Kemudian, datang pesan-pesan yang baik-baik (Quran, hadis, apapun) sebagai tanda peringatan kerana manusia itu cepat lupa dan melatah. Tapi sayang, berlaku sebaliknya, ia malah diatasnamakan untuk melegitimasikan tindakan yang mencacatkan keadilan. Jadi, masakan aku boleh tolak (tidak juga aku terima) jika agama-agama yang punya kitab—agama Ibrahimiah ini banyak timbul konflik daripada kedamaian. Dan aku malah cenderung untuk percaya Agama sebegini adalah ilusi orang-orang yang tidak dewasa. Nietzsche, Freud, dan Marx, ketiga – ketiga orang ini berpendapat, bahawa kenyataan yang tampak di depan mata itu palsu (false consciousness) dan menindas malah memiliki akses yang menghambat kehidupan manusia. Lalu kita harusnya menghentam segala bentuk mitos dan ilusi, biarpun agama, agar perubahan sosial dapat ditafsirkan ke arah pembebasan manusia. Manusia tidaklah lagi menjadi Tuhan kepada manusia lain seperti dinyatakan sebaliknya oleh Bacon. Tapi aku tidak menolak agama, kerana itu terletak hati aku yang kerananya aku masih bernyawa. Ada satu keyakinan dalam diri bahawa ajaran agama Islam dan agama yang lain berpunca daripada wawasan sosial yang menentang kesalahan dan kemungkaran aturan sedia ada, dan ingin melahirkan suatu aturan sosial baru yang berkeadilan bagi semua. Cumanya, kekesalan sama aku kongsi dengan Delamont (1980) bahawa terdapat jurang besar antara kepercayaan agama (religious beliefs), kelakuan (religious behaviour), prasangka agama (religious prejudices). Dan ia berputar dalam tiga tema besar perempuan, agama dan moral. Dan sesungguhnya benar kata Nawal al-Sa'dawi bahawa TIADA pembunuhan yang lebih dasyat melainkan ia berkaitan perempuan, agama dan moral. Dalam usia ini, aku juga kita hanya mampu berharap tidak akan berlaku lagi kisah tragis yang menimpa Jeanne d'Arc dan moga bumi mengizinkan Faridah Hanum, Siti Zubaidah dan Salmah terus bernafas. Bukan sebagai stereotaip perfect lady (domestic ideology) dan ibu mithali malah lebih dari itu—sebagai Aisyah, Fatimah dan Sakinah pada masa depan!

BN BLAME GAME: Dragon Boat Tragedy

Posted: 20 Jan 2010 08:27 PM PST

Thanks to an anonymous' comment, I was directed to MarGeeMar: Pakatan Rakyat Caused Deaths of Teacher & Students in Penang Dragon Boat Tragedy.

I hereby reproduce the posting verbatim:
By T.K. Chew

Dear Admin

While I'm writing this, my heart is filled with sorrow and anger. Sorrow, because six young lives was lost in the Dragon Boat tragedy in Penang. Anger, because some irresponsible people are trying to spin this tragedy to score points for Barisan Nasional.

I'm an Alumni of Chung Ling High School and my son is a student in that school. My son will be sitting for his SPM examination this year. The sudden deaths of the schoolboys and their teacher has left my son in a state of shock. My wife and I are very worried about he state of mind of our son. I'm sure parents of the other students fron CLHS are also having similar concerns about their children.

Though it was not reported by the mainstream media, the CLHS students and the Alumni have asked the MCA and Gerakan to get lost as we feel that the Barisan nasional especially MCA and Gerakan are trying to gain political mileage out of this tragedy. You only need to go to Facebook to read what the students of CLHS think and feel about the MCA, in particular the cry baby Wee Ka Siong who show up only for the publicity. Even the RM 3,000 given to the victim's families by the BN has been publicized by the BN controlled mainstream media.

However what really irks me and makes me feel disgusted is the heartless and sickening blog posting of Goh Wei Liang in his A PIECE OF MY MIND blog. He has the audacity to compare one tragedy, Kuala Dipang Tragedy in Perak, with the Dragon Boat Tragedy in Penang. Goh is blaming the Pakatan Rakyat government and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for this tragedy in revenge for the blaim laid on the BN government for the Kuala Dipang tragedy. Goh must realize that the Kuala Dipang tragedy is the direct handiwork of Najib Razak and his government as the bridge was built not according to specifications and that the children lost their lives all because of Perak Mentri Besar Zambry wanting to apple polish his boss Najib with the stupid 1 Malaysia Expedition which caused this unnecessary lost of lives. What happened in Penang cannot be blamed om the Penang government.

If anything, the Penang government and its Chief Minister should sue Goh Wei Liang for slander. Goh has made this allegation even before an investigation to the cause of the tragedy had been carried out. Goh Wei Liang must realized the Chinese in Penang are fed up with MCA, Gerakan and BN. As dar as we are concerned, BN can get lost from Penang. As for Goh Wei Liang I suggest that he renames his Blog as A PIECE OF MY SHIT. You can read Goh Wei Liang's sickening blog posting here

Thank you.

SOS TR Nor Anak Nyawai - Part 2

Posted: 20 Jan 2010 08:49 PM PST


1. Yesterday morning, on 19.01.2010 at Tatau sub-district, the Land and Survey enforcement team from all over Sarawak with few trucks of Army personnel and policemen went to demolish houses without prior notice to the landowners at Sg. Sekabai, Sebauh Bintulu. This particular land (the territorial domain) had been won by Tr. Nor Ak Nyawai and some others at the Malaysian Court few years ago. But unfortunately, how did the Company manage to convince the Court to approve for the eviction order is always remain a mystery to so many Indigenous peoples in Sarawak.

2. The enforcement personnel managed to demolished about 25 houses with all their belongings inside were destroyed indiscriminately for more than 4 hours of ugly service to the said 'company'. The way i look at it is that the Ibans (Indigenous Peoples) have no more right to their own land and the companies seem to have more rights and surely own more land everywhere. Now who own these big companies in Sarawak? The Indigenous people of Sg. Sekabai were still in the state of shock because of what had happened today to their houses and properties. Most of the occupants were left without any place to live right now and all their belongings were also intentionally destroyed by the enforcement. In Haiti peoples and properties were destroyed by natural disaster but strangely in Sarawak we are 'giving human disaster' to our own peoples without mercy.

3. The people of rumah Tr. Nor of Sg. Sekabai had a meeting yesterday night and i was there with them. Everyone looked very angry, very disappointed and very down as they lost their properties just within seconds by the enforcement. They did not only cut the houses but they smashed them with the tractors into pieces to the ground. They all agreed to stay put on the ground at Sg. Sekabai to prevent these 'demolishers' continue their barbaric act these few days. Please give your moral support by joining them on the ground today.

4. So I humbly appeal to any generous & good Samaritan to reach out to the people of Sg. sekabai to see into their needs especially food and shelter. Tr. Nor Ak Nyawai whose house is also being demolished has been tirelessly traveling with us to all parts of Malaysia to tell the truth about his court case. Since he and his people are in deep trouble because of this demolition I think it is human and fair that we assist him and his people. Many of them do not have place to stay and no food to eat. This is another 'Sign of the Time' just below our nose especially those of us who live in Sarawak, Malaysia.

Dated: 19.01.2010


And now, please open your eyes, your ears. Superintendent of Land and Survey Bintulu, Haji Ajmaen Haji Superi told Sarawak Update: "We are only carrying out our duty. The court has made its decision. The court have communicated to the lawyer, and it is the lawyer duty to inform their clients that they lost the case," he explained, adding that failure to vacate the land is contempt of court.

As I informed, the land is PART OF TERRITORIAL CLAIMED (NCR LAND) of TR Nor Anak Nyawai. Is it illegal to build your own house in your own land? Think.
