Happy Anniversary

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 09:50 AM PDT

A day after mid autumn festival is my parent wedding anniversary. This year it's a bit different... mom is requesting to have a dinner together. So, what i need to do is to get out from work as early as i could today. Dear colleagues, no late work for me tonight.

BTW, I have no idea where we should have dinner tonight and what type of food... Chinese? American? Italian? Iranian? Indian? etc... I think it's better to let my parent decide. All i need to do is to be the driver :p

So, how you celebrate your wedding anniversary? Of cause I'm not asking those single out there, I don't think you could answer the question.

Anyway, if you want to answer the question... go and get married then wait for a year. By then you will be eligible to share with us on how you celebrate your wedding anniversary... WINK~

MCA – political tool of british colonial power?

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 10:38 AM PDT

hmm… very interesting and revealing facts about MCA from DAP's ronnie liu. can we believe entirely what ronnie said about MCA here?


The true colours of MCA


SOMEONE hides behind an anonymous name (Lovely Jin) accusing me for misleading the public about the 'great' history of MCA.

The writer shows a serious lack of knowledge and understanding of the role of MCA in the pre-Independence era.

Not only MCA was a political tool of the British colonial power, other Alliance parties like Umno and MIC were also political tools of the British. The British made use of MCA, Umno and MIC to fight the Malay Left and Malayan Communist Party in order to protect its economic interests in the then Malaya.

Your browser may not support display of this image. The million-dollar lottery owned and operated by MCA in the pre-Independence era was granted specially by the British colonial 'master'. All winners of lottery must join MCA as a member.

As a deal, MCA must spend some of the profits from running the lottery on the Chinese living in the new villages (under the Briggs' plan). MCA losts the lottery concession shortly after Merdeka under the pressure of Umno. It was replaced by the state-run Welfare Lottery for some years before the former PM Tun Dr Mahathir given the exclusive right away to businessman Ananda Krishnan. Ananda changed the name of the lottery to 'Big Sweeps'.

The Chinese were confined to various Chinese New Villages under the Briggs' plan to curb the influence of the MCP. MCA was then granted a license to run the Million Dollar lottery by the British authority to make easy money from the Chinese community. As a deal, MCA must use part of the profit to win the hearts of the Chinese in the new villagers. This strategy worked well to serve the interest of the British master during the pre-Independence days.

When the time has come to give Independence to Malaya, the British kept its promise by working only with Umno, MCA and MIC. On the other hand, the real independence fighters including some prominent Malay Left leaders were arrested and locked up in prisons. And the war against the MCP continued with greater intensity.

But true leader like Tan Cheng Lock was sidelined by other MCA and Umno leaders in the run up to the Independence negotiations. Tan Cheng Lock has promised the Chinese community to present the General Demands of the Chinese Community to the British. When his intention was known, he was barred from attending the final round of talks in London.

The MCA was instead represented by traitors like H.S. Lee and Tahir Tan Tong Hai. According to the late Tunku Abdul Rahman (in one of his writings), Tan Tong Hai threw the entire General Demands document into a waste paper basket in the London hotel room instead of bringing it up to the negotiation table!

That's the reason why I often tell the young people that the betrayal of MCA could be traced back to its inception. As a result of this unforgivable sell-out, Malaysian Chinese were treated like second class citizens in our land. The Chinese were now stuck with the 'Non-Bumiputra' label thanks to MCA.

It was people like Leong Yew Koh who instigated Tunku to strip the citizenship and teaching license of the foremost Chinese education pioneer Lim Lian Geok. Check with Cikgu Loot Ting Yee. He is one of the mother tongue education pioneers who could testify my story.

The entire history of MCA is filled with betrayals, crimes and sins. They have failed to preserve and protect the interest and rights of the Chinese community which they have claimed to represent. Take a closer look at these scandals; deposit-taking-cooperative scandals, Chang Min Thien Fund scandal, Aik Hua Holdings scandal, MCA JE Fund scandal… it's a never-ending list.

And guess what; most of the victims of these scandals were MCA members and supporters. Mind you, it was MCA that instigated the closure of the original Bai Xiao (SJKC Damansara ) in Petaling Jaya. It was also the efforts of SOS Damansara Action Committee and the pressure mounted by DAP, Dong Jiao Zong and the entire Chinese community that brought about the unprecedented speedy construction of the new SJKC Damansara in Tropicana.

It's a great shame that MCA leaders do not even bother to get accreditation for the certificates, diplomas and degree courses offered by TAR College. Recently, a young Malaysian Chinese boy's application was rejected by the PDRM simply because the academic qualifications he obtained from the MCA sponsored TARC were not recognized by both Public Service Department and National Accreditation Board.

Under the current MCA leadership, the Chinese community can only request for a new Chinese primary school when one was 'dead'. And all these years, the allocation of fund to the Chinese primary schools remains unfair and unjust; only about 2.4% of the total budget was given to the Chinese stream and about 1% given to the Tamil stream. The rest was all given to the Malay (National) primary schools. None of the MCA 'taikohs' (mainly Chinese educated) dare to make noise on this subject.

Yes, Lee Kuan Yew was not totally wrong. The Umno-led BN government has been systematically marginalized the Chinese and other Non-Malay communities. And what did MCA leaders like Ong Ka Ting and Chan Kong Choy do about it? And why were they keeping so timidly quite when Umno ultras like Hishammuddin Hussein and Khairy Jamaluddin making all sorts of racist remarks and even waved the Malay keris time and again shamelessly?

MCA is indefensible. That's why none of the MCA leaders dare to show up for the debate in Machap. And for the same reason, none of them have the courage to rebut me on all those historical facts I raised in my book entitled, 'Coward? Culprit? Accomplice? The role of MCA in the Chinese Community.'

Kesemua mereka tiba di perkarangan Jabatan Kecemasan dan Trauma hospital itu kira-kira jam 3 petang menaiki sebuah trak polis yang diiringi dua kereta peronda polis. Mereka yang dibawa dari Pusat Tahanan Bukit Jalil itu kemudian memasuki sebuah bilik dipercayai bagi mendapatkan sampel DNA berhubung kes terbabit. Tujuh daripada mereka dilihat memakai pakaian lokap berwarna oren manakala seorang lagi memakai pakaian lokap berwarna ungu.

Kesemua mereka kemudian dilihat keluar dari perkarangan terbabit kira-kira jam 5 petang dan dikawal ketat anggota polis yang mengiringi mereka sebelum meninggalkan hospital itu.

"Ganyang Malaysia" Bergema Semula Di Jakarta

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 08:49 AM PDT

Demonstrasi anti-Malaysia kembali, kali ini kerana isu pembantu rumah

JAKARTA, 22 Sept – Setelah menyepi sejak dua hari menjelang Aidilfitri baru-baru, kumpulan aktivis masyarakat Indonesia pada Rabu kembali mengadakan demonstrasi anti-Malaysia dengan kali ini membawa isu pembantu rumah dari negara itu yang diseksa dan diperkosa oleh majikan Malaysia.

Dalam cuaca hujan yang lebat dan renyai hari ini, demonstrasi berkonvoi 150 motosikal itu membabitkan kira-kira 300 penunjuk perasaan dari beberapa kumpulan aktivis yang menamakan diri "aliansi pemuda pemudi anti-Malaysia" dengan didominasi anggota kumpulan Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat (Bendera).

Dua lagi kumpulan yang turut serta ialah Gerakan Pemuda Daerah dan Relawan Pro Demokrasi.

Sambil membawa bendera Indonesia serta bendera kumpulan masing-masing serta sepanduk "Ganyang Malaysia", mereka membunyikan hon motosikal dan meneria "Ganyang Malaysia" di hadapan kediaman Duta Besar Malaysia di Patra Kuningan dan di hadapan Kedutaan Besar Malaysia, Kuningan, Jakarta Selatan.

Kedua-dua tempat itu dikawal ketat pasukan Polis Indonesia. Demostrasi dimulai pukul 1.30 petang di hadapan Kediaman Duta Besar Malaysia dan pukul 2 petang di hadapan Kedutaan Besar Malaysia dan berlangsung selama 10 minit di kedua-dua tempat itu.

Dalam pidato masing-masing, mereka mengutuk perbuatan penyeksaan dan pemerkosaan yang dilakukan terhadap pembantu rumah Indonesia oleh majikan di Malaysia dan meminta Duta Besar Malaysia dan rakyat Malaysia meninggalkan Indonesia dalam tempoh dua hari kerana menganggap perbuatan Malaysia yang keterlaluan.

Mereka kemudian meneruskan perjalanan ke kompleks beli-belah Senayan City untuk melakukan tindakan usir atau "sweeping" rakyat Malaysia di situ namun polis telah menghadang mereka kira-kira 100 meter dari pintu utama ke kompleks itu.

Penunjuk perasaan kemudian cuba berunding dengan polis agar membenarkan 65 anggota masuk ke dalam kompleks dan melakukan "sweeping" terhadap warga Malaysia yang mereka yakini berada di dalam, namun permohonan mereka tidak dilayan.

"Kami bukan ingin mencuri, kami bukan ingin mengambil barang di mall tapi kami hanya ingin mengusir warga Malaysia," kata Mustar Bona Ventura, coordinator Bendera.

Kumpulan Bendera yakin Senayan City merupakan simbol yang tepat untuk mewakili Malaysia dan percaya warga Malaysia sering berkunjung ke tempat itu untuk berbelanja kelengkapan sehari-hari.

Isu penderaan pembantu rumah Indonesia bernama Win Faidah oleh majikannya itu turut dikutuk oleh Malaysia.

Menteri Luar Malaysia dalam kenyataan di Putrajaya pada Rabu menegaskan bahawa kerajaan Malaysia mengutuk sekeras-kerasnya sebarang bentuk penderaan terhadap mana-mana pekerja, tanpa mengira kewarganegaraan atau sektor pekerjaan mereka.

Justeru itu kerajaan serta rakyat Malaysia amat sedih dan terharu di atas kes penderaan terbaru, membabitkan seorang pembantu rumah dikenali Win Faidah yang berasal dari Jawa Timur, Indonesia pada 17 Sept lepas, katanya.

Pembantu rumah berumur 26 tahun itu, dikatakan telah didera secara fizikal dan seksual sejak lebih empat bulan oleh majikannya dan berikutan itu sepasang suami isteri telah ditahan polis pada 19 Sept lalu bagi membantu siasatan berhubung kes itu.

Sebelum memulakan demonstrasi itu, peserta berkenaan berkumpul di hadapan pejabat Bendera di Jalan Diponegoro, yang merupakan pejabat lama Parti Demokrasi Indonesia – Perjuangan (PDI-P) iaitu parti yang dipimpin bekas Presiden Megawati Soekarnoputri.

Beberapa anggota kumpulan Bendera sebelum ini telah bertindak melempar najis manusia ke dalam kawasan Kedutaan Besar Malaysia dalam salah satu demonstrasi sebelum ini mengenai isu penangkapan tiga pegawai penguatkuasa Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan Indonesia oleh Polis Marin Malaysia di sempadan perairan Malaysia-Indonesia berhampiran Kepulauan Riau.

Sebahagian daripada anggota Bendera turut mengotorkan bendera Malaysia dengan najis manusia selain memijak-mijak Jalur Gemilang semasa berdemonstrasi ketika itu.

Para pelaku yang mencemarkan kawasan Kedutaan Besar Malaysia serta Jalur Gemilang dengan najis manusia itu sehingga sekarang tidak dikenakan apa-apa tindakan oleh pihak berkuasa Indonesia. – Bernama

Demonstran Datangi Rumah Dubes (Kedutaan) Malaysia

JAKARTA, — Rumah Duta Besar Malaysia untuk Indonesia yang bertempat di Jalan Patra Kuningan, Jakarta Selatan, didatangi demonstran dari Bendera (Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat). Hal ini terkait aksi 1.000 motor untuk memberikan ultimatum kepada Dubes Malaysia dan warganya agar keluar dari Indonesia dalam waktu 2 x 24 jam.

Sekitar pukul 13.35, rombongan aksi 1.000 motor tersebut tiba di kediaman Dubes Malaysia yang berada di Patra Kuningan. Mereka berteriak dan berseru lantang dengan mengumandangkan "Ganyang Malaysia!" ,"Usir Malaysia usir Malaysia usir Malaysia sekarang juga!".

Lagu "Indonesia Raya" juga turut dikumandangkan dalam aksi massa tersebut. Dalam seruan yang diteriakkan Ketua Bendera Mustar Bonaventura, mereka menginginkan Dubes Malaysia keluar dari Indonesia dalam waktu 2 x 24 jam.

Hal itu merupakan bentuk kekecewaan dan protes terhadap Malaysia yang dianggap telah melecehkan martabat bangsa Indonesia. Aksi protes di depan rumah Dubes Malaysia tersebut dilakukan selama lebih kurang sepuluh menit dan sekarang aksi massa tersebut bertolak menuju Kantor Kedutaan Besar Malaysia.

Sebelumnya, sekitar pukul 13.00, aksi 1.000 motor tersebut mulai beranjak keluar dari Markas Bendera yang berlokasi di Jalan Diponegoro Nomor 58, Jakarta Pusat.
Mereka bertolak menuju rumah Dubes Malaysia yang berada di daerah Patra Kuningan.

Arak-arakan konvoi terlihat memanjang di sepanjang ruas jalan menuju rumah Dubes Malaysia tersebut. -kompas

Paris sent home from Japan

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 06:04 AM PDT

Paris Hilton denied Japan entryAmerican party girl Paris Hilton was sent home after a short stay in Japan. She was denied entrance by the Japanese immigration due to her poor drug offence records in the United States.

Japan has strict immigration laws against those convicted of drug offences, and Ms Hilton has just pleaded guilty of drug possession in Las Vegas a couple of days ago, making it an easy decision for the Japanese authority to send her home.

Paris Hilton was supposed to have an Asia tour to promote her fashion and fragrance lines, including an event at a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur which is just 15 minutes of drive from my home lol. It's all cancelled now.

GEORGETOWN: Dua lelaki yang ditemui bersama tiga remaja perempuan yang dilaporkan hilang sebelum ini, hari ini ditahan reman bagi membantu siasatan berhubung kes rogol gadis bawah umur.

Ketua Polis Daerah Timur Laut, Asisten Komisioner Gan Kong Meng, berkata kedua-dua lelaki berusia 19 dan 20 tahun itu yang berasal dari Kampar dan Teluk Intan, Perak, ditahan reman selama tujuh hari mengikut Seksyen 376 Kanun Keseksaan yang memperuntukkan hukuman penjara maksimum 20 tahun dan sebatan, jika sabit kesalahan.

Kedua-dua mereka ditemui bersama remaja pasangan kembar, Nurul Ain Kamarazmi dan Nurul Ashiqin, 14, serta teman sebaya, Suhaili Abd Razak dilaporkan hilang di Kampar sejak 11 September lalu dan ditemui dalam sebuah flat di sini, semalam. "Berdasarkan keterangan tiga remaja wanita terbabit, mereka mengaku melakukan hubungan seks dengan dua lelaki itu ketika berada di sebuah hotel murah di Jalan Pintal Tali di sini," katanya pada sidang media di sini, hari ini.

Katanya, hasil pemeriksaan di Hospital Pulau Pinang mendapati terdapat kesan koyak pada kemaluan tiga remaja perempuan terbabit dan polis kini sedang menjalankan siasatan.

Gan berkata, mereka memberi kerjasama dan mengakui secara rela hati mengikut teman lelaki ke negeri ini pada 14 September iaitu tiga hari selepas mereka dilaporkan hilang. - Bernama

Remaja kembar hilang ditemui

GEORGETOWN - Kehilangan tiga remaja perempuan di Kampar sejak 11 September lalu berakhir apabila polis Pulau Pinang berjaya menjejaki mereka selepas mendapat maklumat daripada rakan serumah di sini, awal pagi semalam.

Sepasang remaja perempuan kembar, Nurul Ain Kamarazmi dan Nurul Ashiqin, 14, bersama teman sebaya, Suhaili Abd Razak yang dilaporkan hilang di Kampar sejak 11 September lalu, ditemui di sebuah flat di Paya Terubong, di sini, kira-kira jam 8 pagi semalam.

Ketiga-tiga pelajar Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Sentosa, Taman Bandar Baru, Kampar itu dilaporkan tidak pulang ke rumah selepas keluar membeli pakaian di pekan Kampar pada Hari Raya kedua.

Ketua Balai Polis Air Itam, Cif Inspektor Mohd Fadzil Napiah berkata, ketiga-tiga remaja perempuan itu ditemui bersama dua rakan lelaki mereka iaitu Mohammad Akmal Hakim Ismail, 19, dan Shahrizan Zakaria, 20.

"Mereka dibawa ke Balai Polis Air Itam untuk diambil keterangan. Kesemua remaja terbabit dibawa ke Hospital Pulau Pinang untuk menjalani pemeriksaan kesihatan sebelum diserahkan kepada polis Kampar.

"Kami akan memberi butiran lanjut mengenai penemuan remaja ini dalam satu sidang akhbar tidak lama lagi," katanya.

Di KAMPAR, Ketua Polis Kampar, Superintendan Abdul Aziz Salleh berkata, ketika serbuan dibuat semua remaja berkenaan dipercayai sedang tidur dalam dua bilik berasingan di rumah berkenaan.

Beliau berkata, dua lagi remaja lelaki tersebut ditahan reman di Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Air Hitam untuk siasatan lanjut.

"Polis juga telah melaksanakan siasatan selain memberi ikat jamin, terhadap seorang lagi remaja yang dikenali sebagai Roy, yang telah pulang ke rumah terlebih dahulu," katanya kepada pemberita di sini, semalam.

Beliau berkata, keluarga remaja berkenaan juga telah dimaklumkan berhubung penemuan itu.

"Polis memandang serius perkara sebegini kerana sejak akhir-akhir ini, kes orang hilang boleh menjurus kepada kes-kes jenayah.

"Iba bapa disarankan agar sentiasa mengambil berat hal anak-anak seperti mengetahui ke mana mereka pergi dan dengan siapa mereka berkawan.

"Komunikasi antara ibu bapa dan anak-anak adalah sangat mustahak bagi membendung gejala ini daripada berlaku," katanya.

Sementara itu, ketika dihubungi Sinar Harian, ibu kepada pasangan kembar berkenaan, Harlizah Samah berkata, mereka menyerahkan segala urusan kepada polis.

Menurut sumber, ketika artikel ini ditulis, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Malim Nawar, Keshvinder Sigh membawa keluarga tiga pelajar berkenaan ke Pulau Pinang.

Ulasan GB

Kisah remaja semakin liar, tak dapat nak diulas lagi. Budaya hedonisma nampaknya akan terus mengganas. Apatah lagi dah ada sekolah mengandung.

Kemaluan remaja perempuan koyak, rabak, malah berulat itu dah macam cerita basi di zaman moden ini. Nasiblah siapa dapat isteri dan menantu sedemikian.

Tapi tu, di tulisan kedua, ayat terakhir GB ada "bold"kan. Mana pergi ADUN-ADUN Pakatan Rakyat? Tak ambil ke kisah bab ni? Adakah anda semua ada berusaha membantu keluarga mencari anak-anak mereka? Atau setidak-tidaknya menziarahi keluarga itu sebelum anak-anak mereka ditemui? Tidak kisah ler di kampung mana pun asalkan ia di dalam negeri Perak.

Bising dan sibuk nak ambil balik negeri Perak, tetapi lalai untuk bekerja untuk rakyat akan mengundang padah di dalam pilihanraya akan datang.

Now I see who Idris Jala is! He is nothing more than a PR prattler!

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 07:56 AM PDT

Please go to Lim Kit Siang's blog and read an article by Kee Thuan Chye - 'If it's a problem, don't recognise it'. Very well written and worth noting, it appeared in Malaysiakini on Sep 22, 2010. 

Read it. We need to be alert and not be conned by "sales talk". Basically, the article zoomed in on Idris' speech at UCSI about Malaysians moving from merely tolerating each other to celebrating the differences or celebrating diversity.

He also talked about two two types of issues and in his own words, "in life, there are only two types of issues". They are problem and polarity - the former is something that can be solved while the latter is something that cannot be solved but must be managed. He likened polarity to a relationship between husband and wife and illustrated by giving the example of his wife and him. She is fastidious in wanting him to place his socks in a proper basket for washing, but he is used to leaving them all over the house. Despite her repeated attempts to get him to conform, he is incorrigible. She on her part takes an inordinate amount of time to get ready when they have a function to attend. It annoys him that because she can't decide on what to wear, they often turn up late., there you have it! The polarity in Malaysia is the Malays and non-Malays or the Muslims and non-Muslims. So, the Malays have to accept the non-Malays' way of life just as much as the non-Malays have to accept the Malays'. Don't change the status quo. Don't force one's view upon another. The Catholics have been using the word 'Allah' in the Herald publication for years. If talk about polarity and managing, then the Catholics should not be stopped from using the word 'Allah' - just like you don't stop your wife from taking an inordinate amount of time to prepare herself and she doesn't stop you from leaving your socks all over the house!

Clinic Duty and Raya Visit Round 2

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 06:51 AM PDT

I was on clinic duty again today, and this time I went a wee bit early with the hope of getting a proper parking space without having to go around the hospital a few rounds.

Well yes, I did get a proper parking space at a parking lot nearer to the Pusat Rawatan Harian, but much further to the specialist clinic where I was heading. But then, walking is a good form of exercise, no?

Immediately upon arrival I headed straight to the doctor's room to check with the nurse if there were any new cases to be referred today. There were supposed to be three, but none of them were there yet. So I just waited at the usual room, took out my netbook computer and did some work. Meanwhile I also observed the PLHIVs being counseled about their ARV by the pharmacists with whom we were sharing the room.

At one time a lady came in with her 7 year old son. While the mother sat at the table where the pharmacists were, the son was more interested to sit at the chair beside mine, since I was at that time using my netbook computer.

Boy: "I want to play your computer can or not?"

Me: "Cannot, I want to do some work."

Boy: "Got game or not? I want to play."

Me: "No, no game. I use this computer to work, not to play."

Boy: "I press ah?" (then put his fingers on the enter key)

Me: "Don't. I want to work, ok?"

Boy: "If I press, then?"

Me: (make donno)

Boy: "If I press, THEN WHAAAT?" (then he started pressing a few keys on the keyboard)

I gave him my usually deadly stare, but it didn't seem to work with him. Luckily the pharmacists were done counseling his mother, it was time for them to leave the room. But before they left, the boy pointed to my tudung and said, "Why you wear like that one? Take out la!"

Aiyo, this boy… luckily his mother is not one of our clients, otherwise whoever becomes the buddy would probably have their patience tested whenever he/she visits them at their home!

Anyway, although there were supposed to be 3 new cases, only 2 came. One, a young Malay guy, an ex-IVDU. Although it was his first appointment at Ipoh GH, his case wasn't really a new case. He had earlier done his follow-ups in KL and only recently moved to Perak and had his appointments transferred to Ipoh. So, there was not much I needed to explain to him as he had already gone through all the explanations before.

The other case was of a single Chinese lady in her thirties. She went to do her full blood tests recently, and it was then she found out that she had been infected. She suspects she must have got infected by her previous boyfriend as she couldn't think of any other way she could have been infected.


Yesterday I went for round 2 of my raya visits. The 3rd family on my list… Lin's. I had already bought 3 hampers on Monday, one delivered to Fuzi, one to Sofie, and the 3rd one was meant for Lin. This time I decided to go in the morning. As I reached her house at about 10 am, her 2nd daughter (the one studying medic overseas) was outside hanging her laundry.

"Baru mandi ke?", I asked.

"Hehe… belum lagi pun!" she replied, and then went inside for her bath.

Only 2 of Lin's 6 children were home. No. 1 and no.3 were back in Klang Valley where they're currently studying. No. 5 and 6 were in school. No. 2, the daughter whom I met oustide, is due to go back overseas soon. No. 4, Lin's 18 year old son, was all ready to go to work, but he was waiting for his boss to come fetch him. (Waaah, class gitu, nak pergi kerja boss yang datang ambik!)

While Lin's first 3 daughters did quite well in their studies, her son didn't seem to do well. When he was in form 5, he was more interested to lepak with his friends. Lin had quite a tough time trying to discipline this son. But I was happy to note that the boy had improved quite a lot in his attitude. Despite not doing too well in his SPM, he managed to get a job and seemed keen. Maybe he has finally found something that interests him. And unlike during my previous visits when he'd just stay away, this time he was more talkative. Hmmm… big improvement I must say. His other siblings had always welcomed me to their home, and now with the changes I see in this boy, I felt even more comfortable visiting them.

Lin had been working hard during fasting month, sewing clothes especially for neighbors. In fact, some were begging her to do some last minute alterations, or to accept last minute orders.

With her no. 1 and 3 expected to finish their studies by next year, I believe Lin's financial worries should be over in the near future. Her first 3 daughters had always been supportive of her all along and after knowing them for more than a year, I believe they will help their mother and younger siblings financially once they can get themselves a job. I look forward to the day when Lin's wellbeing is taken care by her children instead of her having to worry about their wellbeing.


Tomorrow I plan to visit another family, and on Friday 2 more families…

UK worst place to live in Europe

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 06:49 AM PDT

Source_The Sun:UK worst place to live in Europe (Thanks Dr NAKyaw for the link)

THE UK and Ireland are the worst places to live in Europe – while France is the best, says a new study.


Brits have fewer holidays and pay more for goods than almost all other similar countries.

Our food and diesel prices are the highest and booze and fags cost above average.

UK spending on health and education has plummeted and now ranks alongside Poland, the Quality of Life Index showed.

Our net household income was previously the highest – but this year we rank fourth with £37,172.

 Brits get the third fewest hours of sunshine a year – better than only Ireland and Holland. Life expectancy is BELOW the European average of 79.3., which organised the index, compared 16 factors in ten countries.

Spokeswoman Ann Robinson said: "Last year Brits were miserable but rich.

"This year we're miserable and poor. Whereas some countries work to live, in the UK consumers live to work."

France topped the index for the second year in a row. Spain came second followed by Denmark.

Berapa Ramai Sebenarnya Yang Dah Dibunuh Peguam Berpuaka Ini?

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 05:57 AM PDT

Polis sahkan ahli perniagaan India dibunuh

KUALA LUMPUR, 22 Sept – Polis hari ini mengesahkan ahli perniagaan warga India Allal Kathan Muthuraja yang dilapor hilang sejak awal tahun ini telah dibunuh.

Ketua Polis Selangor Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar berkata polis kini menyiasat kes kehilangan lelaki berusia 34 tahun yang tiba di Malaysia pada 18 Jan lepas itu sebagai kes bunuh mengikut Seksyen 302 Kanun Keseksaan.

"Saya sahkan mangsa dibunuh hasil daripada petunjuk dan keterangan-keterangan yang telah dikumpul. Berdasarkan dari itu kita telah 'upgrade' kertas siasatan daripada orang hilang kepada kes bunuh," katanya ketika dihubungi di sini hari ini.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika ditanya mengenai perkembangan kes kehilangan ahli perniagaan hartanah, restoran dan barang kemas dari Chennai, India itu.

Kehilangan ahli perniagaan itu dikaitkan dengan suspek kes pembunuhan jutawan kosmetik Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya dan tiga yang lain apabila dia dilapor hilang selepas dijemput oleh kedua-dua peguam, yang juga merupakan suspek utama kes pembunuhan Sosilawati, di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur sebaik tiba di Malaysia 18 Jan lepas.

Isteri ahli perniagaan itu, S. Usharani, 24, membuat laporan polis berhubung kehilangan suaminya di Balai Polis Banting pada 8 Sept lepas.

Hari ini Usharani menemui polis di Banting berhubung kes kehilangan suaminya itu. – Bernama.

Jam tangan petunjuk mungkin suami senasib Sosilawati

SUNGAI PETANI: Seutas jam tangan yang disahkan milik seorang kontraktor yang dilapor hilang April lalu, Mohd Shafiq Abdullah, 37, menjadi petunjuk kemungkinan lelaki itu senasib dengan jutawan kosmetik, Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya.

Isteri kontraktor itu, Samson Nahar Mohamed Dali, 35, berkata dia dipanggil oleh polis untuk mengenalpasti jam tangan berkenaan ketika ke Banting minggu lepas bagi membantu siasatan. "Saya tak pasti macam mana polis jumpa jam itu tapi yang saya ingat jumpa di ladang, saya cam jam itu sebab suami ada banyak jam berjenama tapi satu itu saja yang bertali kulit jenama Puma," katanya ketika ditemui di rumahnya di Taman Bunga Raya di sini, hari ini. Samson Nahar berkata, beliau dipanggil oleh polis kerana dalam kenyataannya mengenai kehilangan suami di balai polis Petaling, Kuala Lumpur April lalu, beliau memberitahu telah menghubungi suspek utama kes pembunuhan Sosilawati untuk mencari Mohd Shafiq.

Beliau berkata, laporan polis mengenai kehilangan suaminya dibuat pada 13 April lalu di Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Kuala Muda di sini dan kes itu kemudian dipindahkan ke balai polis Petaling kerana suaminya hilang di Kuala Lumpur.

Sosilawati, 47, bersama pemandu peribadinya, Kamaruddin Shamsuddin, 44, pegawai bank CIMB cawangan Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, dan peguam peribadi Ahmad Kamil Abd Karim, 32, dilaporkan hilang sejak 30 Ogos lalu selepas dikatakan ke Banting untuk urusan pembelian tanah.

Keempat-empat mangsa kemudian disahkan polis dipukul sampai mati sebelum mayat mereka dibakar dan abunya dibuang ke dalam sungai berdekatan Ladang Gadong, Tanjung Sepat.

Samson Nahar berkata. Mohd Shafiq yang berasal dari Perak tinggal di sebuah rumah sewa di Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur kerana bekerja di sana dan hanya pulang ke rumah mereka di Sungai Petani setiap hujung minggu.

Beliau berkata, selepas menyedari ada sesuatu yang buruk berlaku terhadap Mohd Shafiq, beliau menghubungi semua rakan-rakan serta pihak-pihak yang pernah berurusan dengan suaminya termasuk suspek.

"Semua orang jawab tak tahu, tapi dia (suspek) seorang saja yang bagi jawapan ada jumpa suami dan beritahu suami saya ke luar negara dan akan balik lima enam hari lagi.

"Tapi bila saya tanya pergi mana, dia kata rahsia dan dari situ saya rasa pelik dan terus pergi ke rumah sewa suami di Kuchai Lama untuk mencari pasport suami saya," katanya.

Samson Nahar berkata, beliau menemui pasport suaminya di rumah sewa itu dan ketika itu beliau menyedari bahawa kehilangan suaminya ada kaitan dengan suspek.

Kali terakhir Samson Nahar berhubung dengan suaminya melalui telefon ialah pada 7 April lalu dan gagal menghubunginya sehari selepas itu.

Beliau berkata, polis juga telah mengambil sampel untuk ujian DNA daripada ibu Mohd Shafiq yang kini menetap di Dengkil, Selangor.

"Polis juga ada meminta barang-barang peribadi suami, saya ada serahkan kasut suami minggu lepas kerana itu sahaja yang ada untuk membantu siasatan dan saya dimaklumkan keputusan DNA akan siap dalam dua minggu," katanya.

Mengimbas kenangan bersama suami sejak 14 tahun lalu, Samson Nahar berkata, Mohd Shafiq seorang yang sangat bertanggungjawab dan tidak pernah lupa untuk memaklumkan destinasinya sekiranya mahu ke mana-mana.

Beliau berkata, walaupun ingin ke sesuatu tempat dalam tempoh yang singkat, suaminya akan tetap memberitahu dan pulang bertemu dengan keluarganya terlebih dulu.

"Dia memang selalu ke luar daerah dan ada juga pergi ke luar negara, tapi setiap kali sebelum pergi mana-mana dia mesti balik sini dulu sehari atau dua hari untuk bersama saya dan anak-anak," katanya.

Samson Nahar berkata, selepas dimaklumkan 95 peratus kemungkinan suaminya adalah antara mangsa jenayah kejam itu pada malam Hari Raya lepas, keluarganya mengadakan solat ghaib serta majlis tahlil untuk suaminya.

"Namun saya masih menaruh harapan suami selamat selagi belum ada pengesahan dan sekiranya disahkan dia sudah meninggal, kami kena terima dan saya harap dapat mengkebumikan tulangnya di sini (Sungai Petani)," katanya.

Samson Nahar berkata, beliau dan anak-anak akan berpindah ke rumah yang baru dibeli suaminya di kawasan perumahan berhampiran tempat tinggalnya sekarang dalam tempoh terdekat.

"Tapi saya tak tahu macam mana nak teruskan hidup lepas ini sebab hilang tempat bergantung, saya pula tiada kerja tetap," kata surirumah yang mengajar kelas tambahan kepada pelajar sekolah secara sambilan di rumah. - Bernama

Open letter to the Minister in the Malaysian Prime Minister’s Department YB Datuk Sri Idris Jala

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 05:51 AM PDT


YB Datuk Sri Idris Jala

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department

The CEO of the Pemandu

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit

Dear YB,

Congratulations and thank you for the impressive ETP (the Economic Transformation Programme), your honour had launched for the GTP or the government transformation programme.

I am impressed and wish to refer to your statement, "It is Pemandu's role as a troubleshooter – or 'catalyst' in Idris' words – that will eventually transform the way the civil service and private sector do things. Every Friday we hold a problem-solving meeting. When someone comes to us with a problem in getting approval from a government department, we will write and ask why was it not approved (and work on those reasons). Nothing can be solved unless there is some form of feedback but for some, their solutions are the only solutions. As we implement the projects, we will force (through) the changes that need to take place in bureaucracy."  Reference_ Malaysiakini news: Pemandu cracks whip over civil service

I hereby wish to request to the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department YB Idris Jala to solve the Red Tapes created by Malaysian Medical Council and MOH on Foreign Doctors which are obstructing the Malaysian's aim to prevent Brain drain and achieving Brain Gain.

  1. If Malaysia needs the service of Foreign and Malaysian Professionals e.g. Medical Doctors, it needs to really offer all the means available that are legally offered in the newspapers and at the International Conferences such as World Trade Talks, if it wishes to effectively attract them.

2.  Even the newspapers reported on the front page that our PM YAB Datuk Sri Najib Tun Razak, when he was a DPM, had said that he would grant the citizenship to even an Illegal immigrant if that stateless child could become a doctor.

                    i.      And the newspapers reported Professional spouses of Malaysian Professionals would be allowed to work in Malaysia.

                   ii.      And Malaysian representatives including International Trade Ministers had repeatedly promised at International Conferences that Malaysia would allow the foreign professionals to work and to change jobs in Malaysia.

3.  Permanent Residence holders in Malaysia should be free to work legally anywhere without any restrictions as long as that is a legal work or business according to law.

4.  Permanent Residence holders are free from restrictions which are meant compulsory for the citizens only e.g. National Service or to do service for the government for certain number of years.

5.  Especially if Permanent Residence holders never took the Malaysian Government loans, scholarships or studied in the Government Universities which are subsidized but attended the Private Universities and fully funded by the parents should not be unfairly forced to serve with the Ministry of Health only.

6.  As a Permanent Residence holder with the recognized Medical degree and have done the compulsory two years Houseman-ship, who entitles the Full Medical Registration should be given the chance to work under the Ministry of Education Universities or under the Defence Ministry Hospitals or any other local or central government clinics even if MMC do not wish to allow to work at Private Sector.

7. If any professional couples especially with the infant less than one year of age is posted in different areas, there is a possibility of one of them would ultimately resign.

8.  Foreign doctors who wish to do Masters Programmes are not allowed to withdraw salaries given by the relevant government hospitals although they need to take all the duties and on-calls like their Malaysian doctors for at least four years during their training. So Malaysia lost the bright doctors who wish to study and work hard. If they are allowed to withdraw salaries, more foreign doctors would come in here and some of them may even decide to stay and serve Malaysia.

9.  Foreign doctors who just grab any legal works to be able to survive and to get a valid visa to stay in Malaysia are not allowed to transfer the job if they later got the better offer from the government Universities or the government hospitals. MMC refused to grant the registration and advises to wait for few years. At that time the vacancy was filled and the old job offer of appointment was already nullified.

10. Please read Tun Dr Mahathir's posting about Malaysian doctors about the Malaysian Medical Council and Ministry of Health selfish attitude here in 2009.08.21: THE DOCTORS  

a. What their qualification confers upon them is not just a degree but as doctors they have been elevated to a special status and endowed with special powers. They would have in them the capacity to inspire confidence and trust in their patient. The confidence and trust are such that people would literally entrust their lives to them, allowing them to cut open their bodies and do things which could kill if done by others.

b.  The skill and the power they acquire owe much to the society in which they were brought up and their access to education up to the highest level. Not all human society can do this. A poor society, an unstable society, an uncaring society would not be able to give them even primary education, much less training to become a doctor. The cost borne by the society is high.Whether they get a scholarship or their parents pay for their education, they all owe a debt to society. It behoves them to repay to society through the service in which they are trained.

c. They should therefore be ready to offer their services to the society in which they lived. It may be by serving the Government or if this is not attractive enough, at least their country. They can earn a good income in Malaysia's private sector.

d.  But some easily forget their debt and are easily enticed by higher pay in other countries. These countries paid nothing for their education and training and yet for a little bit more money they get the services of the people we paid a lot to train whether in Government school and universities or in private ones. Quite often the countries which get the service of our doctors are developed and rich.

e. The nation loses a lot when the people we train opts to work in other countries.

f. But the association of doctors make matters worse by refusing entry to foreign doctors to practice. It wants to keep the opportunities for making money in this country to its members only. It does not mind Malaysian doctors going out but foreign doctors may not come in. Only if they work with the Government can they come in.

g.  The flow is one-way. Our doctors can leave the country but foreign doctors cannot replace them. We are losing the brains that we develop without the foreign brain coming in.

h. Despite all the Government's efforts we are losing especially the much-needed specialists.

i. There is something wrong here. If the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) wishes to close the country to outsiders then it should also object to Malaysian doctors from leaving the country. As it is the MMA seem to be wanting to have their cake and to eating it as well.

j. I am not suggesting that as we have embraced globalisation and the free flow of capital etc that we should now allow foreign doctors to come and open their hospitals here. But I do think that if local hospitals need to employ foreign doctors then they should be allowed to.

Thanking Your Honour

Yours Humbly

Dr Abdul Rahman zafrudin

Political Etiquette - Where Art Thou?

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 05:38 AM PDT

There seems to b a very unhealthy trend these days where politicians use the MSM as their platform to make statements about intra-party issues when these should be settled with just a telephone call or a simple face-to-face meeting. Political etiquette - where art thou?

To be a great politician, one should ideally have a healthy self-esteem and display a respectful demeanor to be a positive role model to party members. Confident intellect should be projected in the type of statements that one makes. The emblem of commendable political etiquette should be behavior and mannerism that stems from a heart humbled by one's own successes. A good leader must be undaunted by obstacles in the path and persevere in striving to meet objectives and promises without hitting out or demeaning another person in the process.

I long to see leaders who can, while leading and challenging members, also solicits healthy debate and discussion with open-mindedness to ideas and opinions which may differ from their own.

Is there then a need to hit out publicly at another person from the same party ? I can understand if statements are exchanged by members from opposing sides but what if the members are from the same party?

This evening, Joseph Sipalan wrote an article in Malaysiakini HERE on Don't insult the deputy president, Azmin tells Zaid. The report said:

PKR vice-president Azmin Ali today demanded that Zaid Ibrahim retract his statement published in an online news portal, where he called outgoing deputy president Syed Husin Ali nyanyuk or senile.

Azmin who is expected to face-off with Zaid in a two-man race for the deputy presidency, slammed the latter for his outburst, saying it is "shameful" to the party members and leadership.

Zaid was today quoted in the Malay section of Free Malaysia Today as calling Syed Husin senile for accusing the former of not being fully involved as Pakatan Rakyat coordinator when drafting the opposition coalition's formal policy.

"We cannot have new members offending senior leaders who have been tested in our struggle, unlike Zaid who does not understand the meaning of our struggle," Azmin told Malaysiakini.

"My advice to him is to look back at the Permatang Pauh declaration and understand its meaning. Don't be arrogant, don't act as if you know everything... stop the ego," he said, referring to party advisor Anwar Ibrahim's vision for Malaysia which he announced on Sept 12, 1998.

Both parties are wrong (not that I am judging) and should refrain from speaking to the press when it comes to minor conflicts such as this one. The greater good of the party should always super cede personality clashes.

Mutual respect, tolerance and social/political etiquette must be observed. It does not do much for party solidarity if members speak up publicly against another member. Party solidarity must be maintained and if there is a conflict or disagreement, reason together and come to an agreement without playing up on issues.

Let the democratic process take its course in the PKR elections without leaders influencing other members by their statements or responses.

Ideally, when standing for elections, candidates should tell voters what are their USP - unique selling proposition and why voters should vote them! So let's hear what Zaid, Azmin and whoever is standing for elections have to say about themselves, their qualities/experience/hopes and dreams and let the elections be one that leaves a fragrance in the air that few can forget!

Perhaps then, more rakyat will be convinced that indeed, this is a party capable of making the journey to Putrajaya.

Anak RPK Bebas Tanpa Dipanggil Bela Diri

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 12:46 AM PDT

Mahkamah Majistret di sini, hari ini, melepaskan dan membebaskan Raja Azman, anak lelaki penulis blog Raja Petra Raja Kamaruddin, daripada tuduhan mencuri sebuah motosikal milik seorang operator pengeluaran dan memecah masuk rumah lelaki itu pada Mac tahun lepas, tanpa dipanggil membela diri.

Majistret Norkamilah Aziz membuat keputusan itu di akhir kes pendakwaan selepas mendapati pihak pendakwaan gagal membuktikan kes prima facie terhadap anak kedua editor laman web 'Malaysia Today' itu.

Timbalan Pendakwa Raya Sharon anak Jikin hadir bagi pihak pendakwaan sementara Raja Azman diwakili peguam J. Chandra dan Amarjit Singh Sidhu.

Raja Azman, 34, dibebaskan daripada tuduhan mencuri sebuah motosikal jenis Yamaha RXZ milik Mohd Syaiful Setapa, 24, seorang operator pengeluaran, membabitkan kerugian RM8,000 di No 65, Jalan Batas 2, 19/6B, Seksyen 19 di sini pada pukul 9.30 pagi, 20 Mac tahun lepas.

Raja Azman yang ditangkap pada 6 Mei tahun lepas, juga dibebaskan daripada tuduhan memecah masuk rumah Mohd Syaiful dan mencuri beg duit mengandungi kad pengenalan, wang tunai RM20, cukai jalan, kad ATM Maybank dan BSN serta lesen memandu milik mangsa di alamat, masa dan tarikh yang sama.

Raja Azman bagaimanapun mempunyai dua lagi pertuduhan yang masih belum dibicarakan.

Pertuduhan itu ialah mencuri telefon bimbit dan seutas jam tangan bernilai RM3,850 milik seorang pelajar, Saipul Adli Mohamed Yunus, 21, di rumah mangsa di No 16, Jalan Sastera, U2/1K Seksyen U2 di sini, pada 10 pagi 24 April tahun lepas.

Dia juga didakwa memiliki sebuah motosikal curi kepunyaan seorang pelajar, Ahmad Firdaus Jalaluddin, 23, bernilai RM6,000 di depan rumah No 3, Tingkat 1, Blok 1, Apartmen Kinrara Court, Puchong pada 10.40 malam, 5 Mei tahun lepas.

Mahkamah menetapkan 25 Nov depan untuk sebutan bagi kedua-dua kes itu.

Sejurus prosiding berakhir, Raja Azman yang kelihatan sangat gembira terus memeluk kedua-dua peguamnya.

Ketika ditemui pemberita di luar mahkamah, Raja Azman yang memakai kemeja-T berwarna hitam dan putih bercorak kotak mengucapkan kesyukuran kerana dibebaskan daripada kedua-dua pertuduhan tersebut.

Dia yang sebelum ini dibebaskan dengan jaminan RM10,500 berkata pembebasan itu secara tidak langsung turut membantu membersihkan nama bapanya.-Bernama

UMNO Terkedu, Hipokrit Terdedah, Kamalanathan Masuk Masjid Pijak Tempat Sujud

Posted: 18 Sep 2010 08:02 AM PDT

Khalid Samad dakwa Umno hipokrit, benarkan MP MIC masuk masjid

Gambar: Ahli Parlimen Hulu Selangor P. Kamalanathan bersama ADUN Umno menyerahkan sumbangan cek di dalam Masjid Sungai Tengi Selatan, yang menurut Khalid Samad timbul persoalan pendirian Umno-BN dalam isu bukan Islam masuk kawasan masjid. — Gambar ihsan blog Khalid Samad

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 Sept — Selepas akhir Ramadan baru lalu "disajikan" dengan serangan Umno dan Perkasa terhadap kehadiran Ahli Parlimen DAP Serdang Teo Nie Ching di sebuah surau, Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam Khalid Samad mendakwa Umno berpura-pura dalam isu yang hampir sama yang melibatkan wakil rakyat Hulu Selangor dan juga ADUN BN.

"Sepanjang bulan Rejab, Shaaban dan Ramadan kita telah dihidang dengan bermacam-macam berita berhubung kononnya berlaku penyalahgunaan masjid dan surau apabila Selangor berada di bawah pentadbiran Pakatan Rakyat.

"Dengan bantuan pihak media yang telah bekerja keras di sepanjang bulan-bulan tersebut, rakyat Malaysia telah diberikan gambaran seolah-olah Islam tercemar dan terancam oleh kerana sikap 'tunduk kepada DAP' khususnya dan pengundi bukan Islam secara umumnya," kata Khalid dalam blognya.

Tulisan bertajuk "Umno, Kura-Kura dan Perahu", Khalid menambah, menurut Umno dan BN lagi, ia dilakukan demi memperoleh undi, khususnya oleh pemimpin-pemimpin PAS dan parti PAS itu sendiri.

"... iaitu demi kuasa, kata mereka lagi, kesucian Islam sanggup digadai sehingga orang bukan Islam dibenarkan masuk kerana surau dan masjid. Kehormatan ummat Islam tercemar kerana terpaksa menerima sumbangan wang dari orang bukan Islam dan sebagainya.

"Saya tidak berhajat untuk mengulas berkenaan isu bukan Islam memasuki ruang solat di masjid atau surau, bagaimanapun kepada yang berminat bolehlah mengikuti keputusan Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan berkenaan Hukum Pelancong Bukan Islam Memasuki Masjid Dan Ruang Solat Utama Di Dalam Masjid," kata beliau.

Sehubungan itu, kata Khalid, bagi yang mengenali Umno segala bentuk dakwaan sedemikian rupa tidak akan mendatangkan apa-apa mudarat.

"Bagi yang mengenali peranan Pengarah JAIS dan MAIS sebagai kesinambungan wadah kepuraan Umno dalam bersandiwara, ia turut tidak memberikan sebarang kesan.
"Tetapi bagi yang masih 'kabur', saya sajikan beberapa keping gambar yang menjelaskan sifat Umno yang berkura-kura berpura-pura, pembohong dan memutar-belit fakta tanpa syak lagi," katanya.

Kamalanathan memenangi pilihan raya kecil Hulu Selangor April lalu.

Antara gambar yang dipaparkan di blognya menunjulkkan wakil rakyat Umno memberikan tazkirah di Masjid Lama Hulu Bernam dan Masjid Felda Gedangsa.

Khalid menimbulkan persoalan sama ada wakil rakyat berkenaan mempunyai tauliah.

Selain itu beliau turut menyiarkan gambar Ahi Parlimen Hulu Selangor P. Kamalanathan bersama ADUN Umno menyerahkan sumbangan cek di dalam Masjid Sungai Tengi Selatan.

Ekoran insiden di Surah Al-Huda di Kajang, Majlis Agama Islam Selangor (MAIS) berkata larangan ke atas bukan Islam memasuki ruang solat masjid dan surau di Selangor tidak terhad kepada Teo sahaja.

MAIS menegaskan larangan dikenakan ke atas Teo menerusi surat amaran, yang diterima wakil rakyat itu semalam, merangkumi semua orang bukan Islam di Selangor termasuk wakil rakyat dan ahli-ahli politik.

Setiausaha MAIS Datuk Mohammed Khusrin Munawi berkata larangan itu perlu dipatuhi demi menjaga kesucian dan kehormatan masjid dan surau.

"Dalam surat amaran yang diberikan Teo, kita melarang beliau daripada memasuki ruang solat masjid dan surau di negeri ini.

"Kalau beliau mahu buat program boleh buat di kawasan luar ruang solat... keputusan kita tegas," kata beliau.

Dalam surat amaran itu, MAIS meminta supaya beliau tidak lagi memasuki ruang solat masjid dan surau di Selangor.

MAIS juga menekankan arahan tersebut dikeluarkan atas titah perintah Sultan Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

Namun Mursyidul Am PAS Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat mempertahankan tindakan Teo.

Menteri Besar Kelantan itu berkata tindakan anggota Dewan Rakyat tersebut tidak menyalahi hukum Islam, malah sebaik-baik cara untuk mendekatkan mesyarakat bukan Islam kepada Islam.

Selain itu, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) menegaskan, sikap menghalang bukan Islam memasuki masjid atau surau bertentangan dengan semangat keputusan Jawatankuasa Fatwa Majlis Kebangsaan dicapai awal tahun ini.

Perkasa meminta kerajaan mengadakan undang-undang baru menghalang bukan Islam memasuki masjid dan surau. -TMI

Seni (Art dalam bahasa Inggeris) merangkumi semua aktiviti dan hasil karya manusia yang indah dan berseni (kreatif) bagi semua kaum dan bangsa di dunia. Pada masa kini, seni merupakan luahan kreativiti manusia yang paling dikenali dan dianggap sebagai keunggulan daya cipta manusia-wikipidia-

-alah,anak aku boleh buat.kalau macam ni,nenek aku lukis sambil kencing pon boleh- itu antara kata-kata yang sering didengar apabila memperkatakan tentang lukisan yang kabur (kepada banyak orang),anstrak kata orang yang tahu sedikit.

Benar sungguh kata-kata mereka itu. Memang ada kanak-kanak dan nenek-nenek yang boleh melukis dengan baik namun mengatakan anak kamu atau nenek kamu boleh melukis sebaik pelukis Awang Damit misalnya adalah satu penyataan yang amat dengkal. Kalau dikampung saya,orang begini dipanggil biul batu sebutir.

Seni itu luas,apa sahaja yang kamu lihat ada seninya. Membuka mata untuk membaca tulisan ini juga adalah seni dan semua jenis seni ada harganya. Harga membuka mata untuk membaca tulisan ini adalah dengan rajin sembahyang.

Namun demikian,tinggi rendah harga sesebuah karya seni itu sangat terbuka untuk diperbincangkan.

Tetapi,TETAPI!apa yang kamu akan lihat dibawah ini adalah satu kerja gila yang disamarkan (baca seperti menyamar) sebagai sebuah hasil seni.

Dalam gambar pertama,kamu lihat ruang tamu sebuah rumah yang sisipandang utamanya menyerupai sebuah pelamin. Sayugia diingat,tidak berlaku sebarang majlis pernikah dirumah ini.Semua anak-anak tuan rumah sudah menikah. Cucu paling tuanya pula baru berusia 6 tahun.

Tuan rumah juga tidak menjalankan apa bentuk perniagaan yang berkaitan dengan upacara pernikahan.

Pelamin itu dijadikan titiktumpu sebagai tanda seni. Ini adalah keterlampauan yang sangat melampau dan sangat-sangat menggangu emosi siapa sahaja yang datang sebagai tamu,mentelah pula seorang ahli seni yang sangat hebat seperti saya.

Perhatikan pula lansirnya. Langsir panggung wayang. Bagi kamu yang sedang galak (baca sebagai muda dan teramat bodoh),kamu mungkin tidak pernah kepanggung wayang yang sebenar. Thearter kata orang dulu-dulu. Dan sebelum gambar dipancarkan kelayar,lansir akan diangkat terlebih dahulu. Lansir dirumah dalam gambar dibawah persis langsir dipanggung wayang satu masa dahulu.

Saya tahu,kamu yang seronok membaca novel cinta melayu adalah golongan yang bercita-cita untuk mempunyai lansir yang sedemikian tetapi dengar-lah kata saya, kamu adalah malapetaka jika melansirkan tingkap dan pintu rumah kamu sedemikian rupa.

Labu sayung tidak seni walau apapun yang dikatakan oleh kerajaan. Ianya hanya sebuah bejana untuk mengisi air. Sama seperti botol kicap yang sifat dan tugasnya adalah untuk mengisi kicap.

Lalu botol kicap itu kamu pakaikan dengan bunga dan diletakkan diatas meja yang beralas ropol sebagai hiasan. Seni? Bukan sayang,itu namanya biul batu sebutir.

Bulu merak sangat cantik semasa masih ada pada burung merak. Ianya satu pakej. Burung dan bulu. Dicabut atau tercabutnya bulu itu,kemudian diletakkan kedalam pasu yang dibeli di Air Hitam (jika kamu ada cita-cita untuk memiliki pasu Air Hitam,kamu adalah kemalangan dalam kehidupan manusia) sama seperti kamu menyimpan kulit lebihan semasa kamu berkhatan didalam botol lamu kamu pamerkan kepada umum.Isteri yang selalu membelai err..itu pun akan muntah melihatkan kulit itu apatah lagi orang banyak.

Apa sahaja yang plastik adalah dosa dizaman manusia semakin hijau ini. Banyak negeri kini menyambut hari tanpa plastik sabang bulan. Kita cuma menunggu masa hari berkenaan diistiharkan sebagai cuti umum sedikit masa lagi.

Maka,bunga plastik,pasu plastik dan kuda plastik bukan seni yang sunat dijadikan hiasan. Malah,entahkan haram menjadikan objek ini sebagai tontonan umum. Jika kamu menjemput Saudara Nasir Baharuddin kerumah ini,saya hampir pasti beliau akan memikirkan dengan serius untuk membunuh diri.

Jika kamu seorang pelukis dan kamu melukis sebuah gambaran tentang neraka lalu sesudah siap kamu akan mengatakan yang lukisan kamu itu cantik,maka kamu adalah pelukis yang perlu ikut jemaah tabligh.

Neraka tidak boleh cantik. Ianya tidak dijadikan untuk hiburan walaupun kamu pengikut aliran musik paling hitam atau pengamal foto infra-merah tegar (baca dR.Ali). Ianya tempat paling huduh,paling tidak mesra. Ianya dijadikan sebagai siksa. Melihatnya sahaja adalah siksa seperti mana kamu melihat gambar-gambar infra merah dR.Ali. Mana mungkin sesuatu yang sememangnya jahat (baca syaitan) digambarkan sebagai keindahan. Mungkin ada seninya disitu,tetapi memanggil neraka sebagai cantik adalah mutlak kesilapan.

Kemudian kamu pakaikan tong sampah dengan ropol dan anggap itu sebagai cantik.Aduh!

Mungkin kamu akan mengatakan yang keindahan itu tergantung siapa yang melihatnya dan kamu tentu akan silap disitu.

Yang indah tetap akan indah siapapun yang melihatnya (baca Nabi Yusuf alaihissalam) dan yang jelek tetap akan jelek siapapun melihatnya (baca neraka).Yang membezakannya adalah citarasa kamu.

Lalu jika kamu sama cita rasa dengan tuan rumah diatas (saya mahu menipu dengan mengatakan yang rumah berkenaan adalah rumah dR.Ali,namun dalam kezaliman,saya masih ada kasih sayang), kamu adalah punca kemusnahan tamadun manusia.
