A LESSON IN HEROISM – THE SOMALIA EPISODE

A LESSON IN HEROISM – THE SOMALIA EPISODE


A LESSON IN HEROISM – THE SOMALIA EPISODE

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 09:23 AM PDT

On September 5, 2011, I posted an article titled, 'The making of a hero out of our own stupidity' that commented on the shooting incident in Somalia involving a Bernama photographer Noramfaizul Mohd Nor that led to his untimely death. Noramfaizul was on a humanitarian mission organized by Putra 1 Malaysia Club; an UMNO outfit headed by one Datuk Abdul Azeez Abd Rahim. While we ought to grieve the lost of an innocent life, I somehow think the government has been over zealous in the manner it handled the incident, that I as a former soldier finds it somewhat of a mockery.

My simple argument and reasoning is this - firstly, it is pointless to glorify a dead person when Noramfaizul's death was the result of the organizers' sheer stupidity in putting civilians in harm's way, knowing full well that Somalia is the most unsafe country in the world. Didn't the organizers know that at the height of the Somalian civil war, Malaysian soldiers have lost their lives and almost an entire platoon of Pakistani soldiers too was killed? Even the most powerful military in the world i.e the USA found it difficult to deal with Somalian rebels, and remember 'The Black Hawk Down' USA propoganda movie?

Here, I am not implying that the humanitarian mission was a worthless cause, but what I am saying is that going into a country like Somalia (despite the presence of the African Union peacekeeping troops) is still dangerous and venturing into that country by people who are clueless about the dangers confronting them smacks of ignorance and stupidity.

Secondly, I think conferring the status of a National Hero upon Noramfaizul who died without him knowing what actually killed him and in such haste, I think is most inappropriate. I do not know the basis upon which Noramfaizul was conferred a National Hero, but I do know there are a set of criterions and eligibilities upon which one is conferred an award for valor by the government, such as the SP, PGB and other gallantry awards. Such award generally relates to actions in the face of an enemy in combat. But in the case of Noramfaizul, can his death be classified as death in combat in the face of an enemy? Maybe the Malacca state government that had conferred Noramfaizul with a gallantry award can explain the rational for such an award. We know that history does tell us that Malacca had many warriors in the past (Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat and others) but I think none of the 'Hangs' are ever conferred the status of national or state heroes. I am not surprise that one day an award of a similar nature will be conferred to someone who died from being knocked down by a motorcycle while on duty in some war thorn country.

Thirdly, I do not know if an insurance payment of almost half a million ringgit to the family of Noramfaizul could dampen their sorrow and grief at having lost someone dear. And half a million ringgit is not an amount that the next of kin of a soldier who dies in combat is paid by its group insurance. It is far less and it is certainly not front page news in the media. I suppose, dead soldiers has little news value; unlike national sportsman and sports woman who even failed to make a cut at international sport circuit.

Fourthly, the reception given to Noramfaizul at the airport upon his arrival is like a grand circus, minus the clowns and court jesters. I am not saying that he does not deserve a 'grand reception party' and a full police escort right to his grave site. What concerns me is that those VVIPs that were present at the airport had all the time to be away from their offices and to accompany a funeral motorcade, then to be in their office; thinking, dealing and solving national issues. Who does not sympathize with the family of Noramfaizul; I certainly do, but the least I could do is to recite the first surah of the Koran in remembrance of Noramfaizul in my prayers.

And if I could relate my experience having return home with my troops after a 15 months successful UN peacekeeping tour in Cambodia, the reception party that received us at the Johore Bahru airport was merely the Brigade Commander and of course our families. We returned home minus one soldier who died in Cambodia. There wasn't a single VVIP and I am not at all disappointed. I think, what is more important is that we as soldiers had presented and performed well Cambodia and most of all, maintained the good name of the country.

To the organizers of the Somalian humanitarian mission, let this be a lesson to you, and if you think you want to be a hero in a country like Somalia or to any other war thorn country, my brotherly advice to you is to seek the professional advice from those soldiers that had served the country, and there are many that you can seek from.


CRUSADE AGAINST CORRUPTION


Gaddafi is dead

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 09:36 AM PDT

Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader whom I interviewed in Benghazi in 1984 has died, killed by his own countrymen, according to unconfirmed reports (here).

"We announce to the world that Gaddafi has been killed at the hands of the revolution,'' National Transitional Council (NTC) spokesman Abdel Hafez Ghoga said on Thursday in the eastern city of Benghazi.

"It is an historic moment. It is the end of tyranny and dictatorship. Gaddafi has met his fate,'' he added. Another NTC commander said one of Gaddafi's sons, Mutassim, was also killed in Sirte.

"We found him dead. We put his body and that of (former defence minister) Abu Bakr Yunis Jabar in an ambulance to take them to Misrata,'' said Mohamed Leith (here).

NTC fighters who had fought in the bloody seven-month conflict that toppled the veteran despot at a cost of more than 25,000 lives, erupted in jubilation at the news, which followed earlier reports that Gaddafi had been captured.

A photograph taken on a mobile phone appeared to show the 69-year-old Gaddafi, toppled by NTC fighters in August, heavily bloodied. In the poor-quality image, Gaddafi is seen with blood-soaked clothing and blood daubed across his face.

Gaddafi is a man of character. I remember during his 2009 visit to New York to address a meeting of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), he delivered a stinging speech which could only be described as erratic. It was marked by a tearing of the UN charter.

In his speech, Gaddafi also wondered aloud whether swine flu was manufactured as a weapon and said that the Security Council should be renamed the 'terror council' and demanded investigations into the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King.

The episode raised Gaddafi's profile in Western media and left many people eager to know more about who he was. In one instance, Gaddafi initially refused to have his picture taken for a US visa application. An aide suggested that the US consulate instead photograph one of the hundreds of billboards in Libya that featured his image and shrink it to fit its criteria.

Gaddafi was well-known for his carefully constructed photo ops and media events. His image was plastered on billboards and banners throughout Libya, often portraying him as a hero of the people. His face was also featured on commemorative stamps and state currency.

He even once presented Condoleezza Rice, the former US secretary of state, with a locket that had his image engraved on the inside!

And now that he is gone (as many believe), the future of Libya is uncertain. The country may be torn apart into several groupings, especially between pro-Gaddafi supporters and the NTC faction which received strong support from Nato and Washington.

A new government will be installed. Would Libya be turned into another Iraq and Afghanistan - getting a new pro-Washington puppet regime?

During that 1984 interview, Gaddafi said the United Nations HQ should be shifted from New York to a no-man's land, abolish the veto power and stop the dictation of the US and other super powers on its administration.

By the way, how do our leaders react to the news?

Al-Fatihah


Muaamar Ghaddafi Disahkan Terbunuh - NTC

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 10:17 AM PDT

Sirte (Libya): Pihak berkuasa Majlis Peralihan Kebangsaan (NTC) mengesahkan bekas pemimpin Libya, Muammar Gaddafi ditangkap dan kemungkinan terbunuh di bandar kelahirannya, Sirte, dalam serangan yang dilancarkan Pejuang Revolusi negara itu, sebentar tadi.

Menteri Penerangan Libya, Mahmoud Shammam, berkata beliau mengesahkan Gaddafi terbunuh selepas mendapat maklumat daripada Pejuang Revolusi yang melihat sendiri mayat bekas pemimpin negara itu.

"Anggota kami di Sirte sudah melihat mayatnya.... Mustafa Abdul-Jalil (Pengerusi NTC) akan mengesahkan perkembangan terbaru itu tidak lama lagi. Pejuang Revolusi memberitahu bahawa Gaddafi kelihatan menyertai satu konvoi dan mereka menyerang konvoi berkenaan," katanya di sini, sebentar tadi.

Jurucakap operasi ibu pejabat NATO di Naples, Itali, Kolonel Roland Lavoie, berkata pesawat bersekutu melancarkan serangan ke atas dua kenderaan pasukan keselamatan pro-Gaddafi awal pagi tadi, di mana mereka terpisah daripada kumpulan itu sebelum menuju ke Sirte.

Bagaimanapun, pihak berkuasa NATO yang enggan namanya didedahkan berikutan syarat yang ditetapkan dalam undang-undang pasukan keselamatan bersekutu, berkata pihaknya tidak dapat mengesahkan sama ada Gaddafi terbunuh atau ditangkap.

Semua pihak mengambil langkah berhati-hati untuk mengumumkan kematian Gaddafi apabila laporan yang diterbitkan sebelum ini (merujuk kepada kematian ahli keluarga Gaddafi atau penangkapannya) disahkan tidak tepat.

Sementara itu, satu daripada kumpulan Majlis Ketenteraan Misrata, berkata pejuang mereka berjaya menangkap Gaddafi.

Manakala, Komander bagi kumpulan lain dalam Majlis Ketenteraan Misrata pula, Abdel-Basit Haroun, berkata Gaddafi terbunuh dalam serangan udara yang disasarkan ke atas konvoi yang sedang melarikan diri. - AP/BH




Melancolic MWS

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 08:05 AM PDT

My dear readers,

I am so sorry for not updating my blog. On Monday afternoon, my cousin's daughter passed away at the age of 28 after suffering from Lupus SLE. The family is truly broken-hearted and so am I. My cousin just lost her husband, Lee Hern (former principal of Sacred Heart School in Balik Pulau) in September last year and this has been a terrible blow to her.

The tragedy of it all is that her maid stole her cheque book and cashed out everything. Then, she did not have enough money to send her daughter to hospital and did not call any of us in her despondent state. So the girl died.

:-(

I am deeply grieved for all the pain, suffering and torment she has gone through and I do not know what to do or how to console her. Deep is a mom's grief.

As such, I have not been able to blog for the past few days.

At the wake, it was truly a painful experience for me for beside the coffin was a row of photographs of Tien-Li hanging in the wall.

Looking at her pics - ranging from the baby pics to the time she grew up to be a beautiful teenager taking A levels ten years or so ago, broke my heart.

The years of taking steroids had its toll on her. Her head was bloated and her body filled with bed sores. For years, my cousin had been feeding her via a hole in her throat while coping with her husband's cancer.

Life is precious, dear reader.

Today, I took out 60% of my photo albums and looked at my pics and that of my family.

And believe me, I really really treasure who and what I have today and where I am.

Looking at pics of my dad made me breakdown. Pics of my boys filled me with so much pride bursting from my heart. Pics of my friends reminded me of precious moments.

And pics of my former students filled my heart with joy.

I am so sorry for this melancholic post. Just want to say - take care dear readers. Cherish life and all who are in your life.

Have a pleasant evening. Normal blogging will resume tomorrow.


Pelbagai Pihak Kecam UIA Gantung Aziz Bari, Mahasiswa Gegarkan Negara Esok

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 08:29 AM PDT

Pelbagai pihak menyelar tindakan Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) menggantung perkhidmatan Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari dan menyifatkan tindakan UIA itu sebagai tidak bertamadun.

Bekas mufti Perlis Prof Madya Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin yang kini mengikuti program felo di Pusat Pengajian Islam Oxford (OCIS) menyifatkan tindakan pengurusan Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) menggantung perkhidmatan Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari sebagai "satu tindakan paling tidak bertamadun dalam dunia akademik", The Malaysian Insider dipetik.

"Saya membaca berita penggantungan Prof Dr Aziz Bari. Bagi saya itu adalah satu tindakan yang paling tidak bertamadun dalam dunia akademik.

"Ternyata perlantikan 'kepimpinan baru di UIA' itu tidak melambang ketokohan akademik, tetapi lebih kepada nilai-nilai politik," kata beliau dalam satu kenyataan dikeluarkan hari ini.

Beliau yang juga adalah bekas penuntut UIA berkata, kepimpinan pusat pengajian tinggi itu sekarang tidak di bawah orang yang terbilang dari segi pemikiran dan dunia ilmu, sebaliknya orang yang berpotensi melakukan tindakan yang melambangkan kejumudan fikiran yang bertentangan dengan norma dunia akademik.

Prof Abdul Aziz Bari adalah pensyarah Fakulti Undang-Undang UIA dan telah berkhidmat di UIA sejak 22 tahun lalu.

Tambah beliau, tindakan ke atas Aziz merupakan "sesuatu yang amat memalukan dunia akademik kita." "Tindakan ini tiada asas ilmu sama sekali sebab dalam dunia ilmu setiap orang berhak berbicara atas asas fakta dan ijtihad. Tindakan ini adalah tindakan mengampu," kata beliau lagi.

Asri yang juga tenaga akademik Universiti Sains Malaysia menambah, "setahu saya rektor UIA sekarang merupakan ahli MAIS (Majlis Agama Islam Selangor)."

"Saya bimbang ada kepentingan konflik dalam tindakan terhadap Prof Aziz," kata beliau sambil menambah, Malaysia hanya mencampak diri ke zaman kegelapan Katolik yang membakar tokoh-tokoh akademik protestan atas tuduhan derhaka kepada istana dan heresy kepada agama."

Katanya, sebagai lepasan UIA, beliau rasa telah berlaku kesilapan besar dalam pengurusan akademik di universiti itu hari ini.

"UIA yang patut bertaraf pusat pendidikan dunia, telah bertukar menjadi pejabat agama yang penuh kesempitan fikiran," tambah beliau.

Sementara itu harakahdaily pula melaporkan bekas pensyarah kanan di UIA yang kini anggota Exco kerajaan negeri Kelantan, Dr Muhammad Fadzli Hassan (gambar) meluahkan rasa terkilan dan juga menganggap tindakan menggantung Prof Ab Aziz Bari sebagai tidak bertamadun.

"Saya cukup terkilan, sepatutnya pakar undang-undang perlembagaan itu sebagai aset negara kerana berani mengupas dalam konteks yang sedikit berbeza.

"Tetapi UIA terpaksa akur kepada BN, menghalang percambahan pemikiran. Inilah malangnya apa yang berlaku sekarang.

"Kerana tindak tanduk seumpama itulah UIA sehingga kini gagal dan terhalang daripada menjadi universiti yang berkualiti," katanya.

Timbalan Menteri Pengajian Tinggi, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah berkata, berasa terganggu dan sedih dengan tindakan UIA yang menggantung Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.

Mengulas melalui laman Twitternya, Saifudin berkata beliau telah mengarahkan UIA memberi laporan bertulis kepada beliau.

"Saya terganggu dan sedih. Saya sudah meminta UIA memberikan laporan bertulis," katanya.

Sementara itu, sekumpulan mahasiswa yang tidak berpuas hati dengan tindakan UIA terhadap Aziz Bari akan mengadakan demonstrasi esok.

Pengerusi Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM), Syukri Abdul Razab yang dipetik FMT berkata, demonstrasi itu akan diadakan dihadapan pintu masuk utama UIA pada pukul 9 pagi esok, selain bercadang menghantar memorandum kepada Rektor UIA, Prof Datuk Dr Zaleha Kamarudin (gambar) menggesa agar penggantungan itu ditarik semula.

Menyifatkan tindakan itu sebagai tidak bertanggungjawab kerana membelakangkan prinsip 'kebebasan akademik', UIA sebagai institusi pendidikan tinggi seharusnya mempertahankan Aziz Bari atas dasar kebebasan berpendapat.

"Sebaliknya mereka tunduk kepada tekanan dan terus menghukumnya. Keadaan ini bukan sahaja memberi kesan kepada Aziz Bari sahaja tetapi semua pengamal akademik," katanya.

Selain SMM, demonstrasi itu akan turut disertai kumpulan mahasiswa lain termasuk Persatuan Kebangsaan Pelajar Islam Malaysia (PKPIM), Gabungan Mahasiwa Islam Se-Malaysia (GAMIS), Pro-Mahasiswa (Pro-M), Gerakan Demokratik Belia dan Pelajar Malaysia (DEMA), serta Persatuan Mahasiswa Universiti Malaya.

Sementara itu, dua laman peminat Facebook dilancar bagi membantah tindakan terhadap Aziz Bari yang juga Pakar Perlembagaan itu.

Facebook "Kami Bantah Penggantungan Dr Aziz Bari" dan "10,000 mahasiswa menyokong penuh Profesor Dr Abdul Aziz Bari" setakat petang ini sudah mempunyai lebih 2,000 peminat.

Dipercayai mengulas sokongan mahasiswa itu, Saifudin juga melalui Twitternya berkata, terpulang kepada mahasiswa tersebut kerana itu hak mereka.

"Sekiranya rakyat dan pelajar mahu memberi sokongan kepada Aziz Bari, itu hak mereka," katanya.

Penang berjaya walaupun Umno serang buta tuli! ;-)

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 07:24 AM PDT

By Clara Chooi
October 20, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 — A report on US newswire Bloomberg today described what it called Lim Guan Eng's achievement of turning Penang into Malaysia's "biggest economic success" as a boost to Pakatan Rakyat's (PR) claim to be a viable alternative to the Barisan Nasional (BN) federal government.
The financial news and data service provider heaped praise on the first-term chief minister from DAP, saying that within two years of his tenure, the country's second smallest state had turned into Malaysia's top destination for foreign manufacturing and investment.

A Bloomberg report said today that within two years of Lim Guan Eng's tenure, Penang had turned into Malaysia's top destination for foreign manufacturing and investment. — file pic
This, it added, was achieved despite the fact the government, under Datuk Seri Najib Razak, had chosen to focus more federal support on states like Johor and Sarawak, where BN's influence is stronger. It pointed out that under Najib's Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), the federal government is promoting RM65.8 billion worth of private sector-led projects for Johor and only RM375 million for Penang.
Without federal power, however, Bloomberg noted that Lim's hands are tied when it comes to offering tax breaks for investors or selling government bonds as both are controlled by the ruling administration.
"So it plans to use revenue from local land levies to build more roads and a third bridge linking the island to its mainland territories," the report said, citing Lim.
"Lim's speed in closing deals ... is helping Penang achieve what every Malaysian prime minister has sought since Mahathir Mohamad started his Multimedia Super Corridor technology zone...," the report said.
"Lim, 50, the country's only ethnic-Chinese state leader, embodies the contrast between Penang's business transparency and the four-decade-old policies of the ruling party that favour Malays, which the World Bank says undermine competitiveness."
The article also highlighted the observations made by Ooi Kee Beng, of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore, that Malaysia's efforts at wooing investors may have been hampered by the government's affirmative action policies and "preferential treatment" of Bumiputeras in terms of jobs, contracts, education and cheaper housing.
"We've been sleeping," the article quoted Ooi, the Penang-born author of "Era of Transition: Malaysia after Mahathir", as saying.
"Penang now has a chance to show that if you have good governance, and if you put fairness and justice as your main qualities, free of race considerations, that is actually the way to go for Malaysia."
The article also pointed to Malaysia's brain drain problem spurred by "racial policies", as highlighted recently by World Bank senior economic Philip Schellekens.
In its latest Malaysia Economic Monitor report, the World Bank had said the migration of talent out of Malaysia undermines the country's aspiration to become a high-income nation.
"Discontent with Malaysia's inclusiveness policies is a key factor," Bloomberg quoted the report as saying. "Productivity and inclusiveness lie at the heart of Malaysia's transformation programmes. Implementing these forcefully will go a long way towards turning the brain drain into a gain."
It added that the US State Department has also described Malaysia's preference for promoting the acquisition of economic assets by Bumiputeras as a "significant impediment" to growth.
Quoting Jim Rogers, the Rogers Holdings chairman based in Singapore: "It clearly slows things as many competent people leave Malaysia because of it ... Malaysia should abolish the policy and open the economy and society to all."



Iran’s Military-Industrial-Terrorist-Political Complex by Clifford D. May

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 07:02 AM PDT

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards soon could have nuclear weapons. In 1979, journalists and diplomats reported from Iran on a revolution against the shah. They were mistaken. The Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his followers were thinking bigger. Their goal was a global revolution — a revolution against the United States and other "oppressor" powers.

The ayatollah famously called America the Great Satan. This, too, was misunderstood. His intention was less to insult than to describe: He knew that freedom, the rule of (man-made) law, peace, and equal rights for both the servants and enemies of Allah are seductive ideas that could subvert the truths and laws revealed by the Prophet as interpreted by him. Promoting such ideas is what makes America Satanic.

With this in mind, Khomeini moved quickly to establish a militia, the Sepah-e Pasdaran-e Enqelab-e Eslami, the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, also known as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). It was designed to be the clerical regime's "sword and shield against domestic opposition forces," writes Emanuele Ottolenghi, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (the policy institute I head) in his timely new book, The Pasdaran: Inside Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Owing allegiance only to Khomeini — who assumed the title of Supreme Leader, "God's shadow on earth" — the IRGC grew into "a vital instrument of Iranian foreign policy," promoting Islamic Revolution beyond Iran's borders. The Quds Force, its "special branch dedicated to operations abroad," became the point of the spear — organizing the assassination of the regime's enemies; financing, training, and sponsoring terrorist groups including Hezbollah, its Lebanon-based proxy, Shiite militias in Iraq, and Hamas in Gaza; and providing assistance to both the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

The Guards and their subsidiaries, Ottolenghi notes, are "directly involved in all phases of the oil supply chain." They run legitimate businesses and front companies that enable the regime "to gain access to foreign technology that Iran cannot yet produce indigenously." They are involved in international drug trafficking, particularly out of Afghanistan, and they collaborate with organized crime, not least in Latin America.

Increasingly, former IRGC commanders have moved into powerful political positions within Iran. Most ominously, this military-industrial-terrorist-criminal-political complex now supervises Iran's nuclear-weapons development and ballistic-missile programs.

Last week, the Revolutionary Guards were implicated in a terrorist plot targeting the Saudi ambassador and anyone else who happened to be in or near a posh Washington, D.C., restaurant that was to be bombed while he was dining. Among the key characters involved are Mansour Arbabsiyar, an Iran-born American citizen, his cousin, senior Quds commander Abdul Reza Shahlai, his deputy, Col. Gholam Shakuri, and a Mexican drug trafficker who, it turned out, was working undercover for U.S. authorities.

Had the plan succeeded, it would have appeared to be the work of a Mexican drug cartel — though Iran's rulers, their friends, and some of their enemies, would have known better.

Instead, the operation failed and, as Iran's terrorist masters undoubtedly expected, many experts have been quick to voice skepticism about whether the Quds Force could be behind such "recklessness," and to suggest that perhaps this was a "rogue operation" lacking approval from Khomeini's successor, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Ottolenghi considers that nonsense, emphasizing that the Guards "respond to the leader's orders, and do not take such daring initiatives to undermine him."


The week that was…

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 07:00 AM PDT

While attending the launch of the Karnival Usahawan Wanita & S.H.E. Expo at Stadium Indera Mulia in Ipoh last Friday, I finally decided to confirm with a friend from another NGO, Perak Women for Women, to attend a talk they were organising the next day. It was rather short notice, I only got to know about the talk via SMS in the morning, and I had initially planned to use the weekend to have a good rest at home, but I figured the topic of the talk could be useful to me in carrying out my own voluntary work. The topic was "Parenting Teens on Sex : When to Start & What to Say".

I may not be a parent myself, but I do deal with so many teenagers who are children of my clients. In addition, I have been assigned to handle a few unwed pregnancy cases as well. So yes, the topic was somewhat relevant.

And so on Saturday I did attend the talk. The turnout wasn't too impressive initially, but slowly participants started trickling in. The speaker was Puan Jamilah Samian, (author of the book "Cool Moms, Super Dads") and she was backed up by her husband, Encik Ahmad Fakhri. And yes, I probably could use some of the tips in my own approach to the teenagers I have to deal with even though they aren't my own kids.

Monday morning… off I went to the hospital. No, I wasn't on clinic duty; our clinic duties at Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun are on Wednesdays. I had been invited to give a talk introducing Buddies to some staff of Health Clinics in Kinta district on Tuesday 18/10, and the letter for me was sent to the HIV clinic at HRPB. So I went to get the letter to find out the full details of the "Kursus Pengurusan HIV" organised by the State Health Department. At the same time, I was hoping to meet up with Hasnah, a client from outstation who was supposed to come for her appointment on Monday. I wanted to help her apply for some financial assistance and there were some forms that needed to be signed.

But by the time I got to the HIV clinic, it was already 10.30 am, yet according to the nurse, Hasnah was nowhere to be seen. I tried calling, there was no answer. I sent a text message, there was no reply. At that moment, I thought she may have defaulted her appointment again, as she did once before.

Not wanting to waste time waiting for nothing, I decided to go home. At least I could get some work done on my computer. It was already 11.45 am when Hasnah finally called back to inform me that she had just reached the hospital. Apparently she couldn't call me back earlier as her phone ran out of credit.

Off I headed to the hospital again, met up with Hasnah at the HIV clinic and got her to sign the necessary. She had not photostated the necessary documents yet though, thinking of getting them done at the hospital. But I needed a copy of her husband's IC as well and he wasn't around, so Hasnah promised to post the supporting documents to me later.

After lunch & zohor at home, off I went again… this time heading to Taman Meru, Jelapang. There is supposed to be an awareness programme there next week and Buddies will be setting up a booth, and the organisers, the State Health Department, called for a final meeting at the event venue. The event is actually a seminar on Kesedaran Pencegahan Penderaan Kanak-kanak & Keganasan Rumahtangga. Our booths will be in the hall where the seminar will be held, so yep, while manning the booth, I'd get to listen to the seminar as well.

The meeting ended at almost 4.30 pm. The next day I was to be one of the speakers for  the other event organised by the State Health Department (different unit though), but since my slot was supposed to be from 12.45 – 1.15 pm, I only went after 11 am. Well, the talks before mine ran late due to a longer than anticipated opening ceremony, and so by the time I got to talk, it was already 1 pm. That too because they decided to postpone the slot for the speaker before me to after lunch. I was the only non-MOH staff amongst the lot and they decided to let me speak first so as not to waste my time.

Anyway, all I had to do was introduce Buddies to them. Knowing the participants were probably already hungry and noting the fact that during one of the forums during the National Aids Conference in Penang recently, each speaker at that forum were only given 10 minutes each to talk about their organisations, I only took about 15 minutes to complete my talk. So lunch was still on schedule.

Got home by about 2.15, and after a short rest, I had to prepare my notes for our board meeting later at 7.45 pm. Our board meetings are usually held on the last Tuesday of each month, but since this time the last Tuesday falls on Deepavali eve, we decided to have the meeting a week earlier.

Amongst others, the Board approved the purchase of exhibition display boards so at least we'd have a proper display for our posters during exhibitions especially when the organisers do not provide display boards. I had earlier enquired from a supplier in KL and was told that they'd charge an additional RM80 for delivery to Ipoh. Still cheaper than the one I checked out in Ipoh, so might as well order from this KL supplier. But after I confirmed the order, the invoice came… and it was mentioned in the invoice that delivery is FOC for community service. Yayyy!!

Another good news is we have also been chosen as a recipient of a project called the Little Christmas Hat Project where a certain amount of the proceeds from the sales of the hats will be channelled to our Education Fund. And we don't even have to help out with the sales of those hats.

I think this year so far had been quite a good year for Buddies…


Polis Tembak Remaja Di Glenmarie: Ibu Mangsa Fail Kes Ke Mahkamah Cabar KDN

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 07:11 AM PDT

Keluarga tiga remaja ditembak di Glenmarie cabar KDN

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 Okt – Ibu mangsa salah seorang daripada tiga remaja yang mati ditembak polis di Glenmarie, Shah Alam November tahun lalu hari ini mencabar Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) membawa kes itu ke mahkamah bagi membuktikan pihak polis bertindak mengikut peraturan.

Norhafizah Mohd Razali, ibu kepada Allahyarham Muhammad Syamil Hafiz Shapiei yang kecewa dengan sikap lepas tangan KDN mahu kematian Syamil dan dua rakannya diadili mengikut siasatan yang menyeluruh.

"Saya sangat kecewa dan marah dengan pihak polis dan Kementerian Dalam Negeri kerana kes ini diperkotak-katikkan.

"Saya minta menteri KDN lihat semula laporan bedah siasat ketiga-tiga anak ini dan saya cabar menteri bawa kes ini ke mahkamah kalau betul mereka di pihak yang benar," kata beliau pada sidang media di lobi Parlimen hari ini.

Muhammad Syamil, 15, Mohd Khairul Nizam Tuah, 20, dan Mohd Hanafi Omar, 22, maut ditembak polis dalam kejadian pada awal pagi 13 November tahun lalu di Glenmarie, Shah Alam.

Ketiga-tiga remaja itu ditembak kira-kira pukul 4.45 pagi kerana disyaki terlibat dengan rompakan stesen minyak.

Hari ini merupakan kali kedua Norhafizah dan ahli keluarga mangsa hadir ke Parlimen ditemani anggota Lawyers for Liberty (LFL) setelah memorandum dan rayuan mereka agar kes ini diadili mengikut saluran perundangan tidak diendahkan.

Norhafizah buat kesekian kalinya menekankan bahawa beliau tidak berpihak kepada anaknya namun kecewa apabila melihat laporan bedah siasat yang mendapati ketiga-tiga mangsa ditembak dalam keadaan mereka sudah melutut, bukan dalam keadaan menyerang seperti yang didakwa polis.

"Berapa kali saya katakan saya terima kalau anak saya benar-benar bersalah tapi sepatutnya mereka ditangkap, bukan terus dibunuh," katanya sambil menahan sebak dan marah, lapor Harakahdaily.

Sementara itu Ahli Parlimen Puchong, Gobind Singh Deo pada sidang media sama menyifatkan jawapan Menteri Dalam Negeri, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein bahawa hasil siasatan mendapati tindakan polis melepaskan tembakan tersebut adalah mengikut lunas undang-undang sebagai longgar dan tidak bertanggungjawab.

Hishammuddin dalam jawapan bertulis kepada soalan Gobind di Dewan Rakyat Isnin lalu berkata, pihak polis menjalankan siasatan di bawah Seksyen 307 Kanun Keseksaan berhubung kes ini.

"Bagaimana kes yang mendapat liputan meluas di seluruh negara, setahun keluarga minta penjelasan daripada polis dan menteri dan saya sebagai seorang ahli Parlimen tanya soalan secara serius.

"Tapi jawapan menteri hanya satu perenggan, berkata tindakan mengikut lunas undang-undang.Mana faktanya? Mana hujah membantah laporan bedah siasat?" soalnya.

Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai, Nurul Izah Anwar berkata Hishammuddin memesongkan Dewan Rakyat apabila berkata kes tersebut ialah cubaan membunuh sedangkan kesemua mangsa mati ditembak.

"Menteri wajib bertanggungjawab dengan kenyataan yang dibuat dalam Dewan Rakyat.

"Budaya terlepas daripada hukuman dan menembak sembarangan di kalangan sebahagian daripada anggota pasukan polis dibenarkan berikutan sikap Menteri KDN yang melulu mempertahankan polis walaupun mereka melakukan jenayah," katanya yang juga Naib Presiden PKR. -TMI




Apparently they have been found out, I am no longer Yap Fook Sang!!

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 07:16 AM PDT

Now that they have been found out there is no record found. Apparently the SPR have no use for old service numbers. They have graduated to Indoputras, Banglaputras, Pakiputras, Ayrabputras and Ayatullputras. Click on image below to enlarge.

The below is a screen capture in the SPR website, not too long ago when I keyed in my service number 3002553.

The above I extracted from the first post which I made on the 8th March 2008. The DUN of Senai and the MP for Kulai, apparently got this 81 year old man's votes. I find this discovery amazing and I am flabbergasted. The fraud that is being conducted by the SPR is therefore true ! Click on the above image to enlarge. I have been cloned into a 81 year old Chinaman, with a name Yap Fook Sang. How did I do this? I keyed in my old sevice number here which is 3002553. I keyed in some more numbers within or somewhere around my batch of officers, which were 3002555, 3002557 and 3001617. All the guys are above the age of 70! These guys should be around 45-50 years old. In my case I got my service number late, as I was a ranker. This is what I call fraud. So why not we question the integrity of the SPR? This is what I got.

Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah answers WSJ

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 06:09 AM PDT

The Wall Street Journal had on October 12 produced an editorial which mocked Malaysia's Economic Transformation Program as 'failing to follow through' on promises of reforms. Calling it 'Malaysia's Old Economic Model', it also belittled the government's effort to provide more jobs for the rakyat.

I believe many have read the article, which lacked information precision. The writer just couldn't write it pretty, afraid it won't be published.

In a letter to WSJ, Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah explained how the ETP is on track to create more than 370,000 new jobs, that the government has slashed red tape so that entrepreneurs can set up a company in just one day.

Malaysia too, he said have climbed well bove the likes of South Korea and the UAE to reach 21st place in the World Economic Forum's global competitiveness index.

The letter reads:

You accuse the Malaysian government of "failing to follow through" on promises of economic reform ("Malaysia's Old Economic Model," editorial, Oct. 12). This could not be further from the truth.

Malaysia's Economic Transformation Program is on track to create more than 370,000 new jobs, we've slashed red tape so that entrepreneurs can set up a company in just one day, and we've climbed above the likes of South Korea and the UAE to reach 21st place in the World Economic Forum's global competitiveness index.

Foreign direct investment in Malaysia is up 76 per cent year-on-year, we're the home of major new facilities for BAE, Cisco and AMD, and the IMF expects our economy to grow by more than five per cent not just this year but next year as well.

All this has been achieved by "following through" on our economic promises – and don't just take our word for it. Only last month Steve Forbes said: "It's one thing to make promises and another to work to make it all a reality. The Malaysian government has so far been delivering reality."

Alongside the ground-breaking political reforms announced back in September, these economic advances are further proof that Prime Minister Najib Razak is committed to delivering genuine and lasting change for all the people of Malaysia.

Note: Similarly, Bloomberg's writer Chong (in my previous posting) also fails to add some logic to his story about Penang which 'booms under Lim Guan Eng.


For Chua, adultery, oral sex, gutter politicals normal

Chua: Gutter politics the norm now

KUALA LUMPUR: Politicians from both sides of the divide have been guilty of practising gutter politics since the 2008 general election, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
"Nobody can claim the moral high ground. They (Pakatan Rakyat) only stand on moral high ground when they are affected," he told reporters after attending the 3rd World Chinese Economic Forum signing ceremony here yesterday.
He said since the 2008 general election, there had been a lot of arguments not on policies but personal attacks, adding that many issues were politicised.
He denied that "gutter politics" were tactics only used by Umno and MCA politicians, adding: "This is something that politicians from both sides do."
Dr Chua was commenting on Pakatan's statement that leaders from Barisan Nasional were practising "gutter politics" when they made allegations against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's son.
Pakatan leaders had expressed outrage and condemned the allegations circulating on the Internet that the boy was transferred out of his school following an offence, which Lim called "barbaric lies".
On another matter, Dr Chua said as a party leader, he could make his own decision on whether to contest in the general election and where to stand as a candidate.
"I can make my decision and I do not need DAP to teach me or challenge me.
"When the time is right, I will make a decision," he said when asked to comment on DAP challenging him to contest in a DAP stronghold.

Yes, Chua is absolutely correct. Actually, not quite correct as gutter politics started from Sodomy I.

So far, cops probed Chua for alleged oral sex but no charge against Chua. Why Anwar charged but not Chua?

3:16PM Feb 23, 2009

One year after Dr Chua Soi Lek's sex DVD scandal led to his resignation from party and government posts, the MCA deputy chief is now being investigated for allegedly performing oral sex.

Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Hasnan Hassan, when contacted by Malaysiakini today, said that the police are investigating the sex DVD under section 377(A) of the Penal Code.

Section 377(A) covers carnal intercourse against the order of nature, which states that "a person who has sexual connection with another person by the introduction of the penis into the anus or mouth of the other person is said to committed carnal intercourse against the order of nature."

chua soi lek sex tape scandal 020108 dvdThe punishment is imprisonment for up to 20 years, as well as whipping, upon conviction.
Hasnan said that the police are also going after those who distributed the sex DVD, and ttaht his will be done under section 292 of the Penal Code, which covers the distribution of pornography.
Those found guilty shall be punished with jail term of up to three years and/or fine.
In connection with the investigation, Chua gave a statement at the district police headquarters at Petaling Jaya at 10.30am today.

section 377 a carnal intercourse against the order of nature 230209When confronted by reporters, he refused to comment on the matter. He merely said he was "visiting an old friend".

However, in a four-paragraph statement issued in the afternoon, Chua, 61, said he went to the police station "to identify a tape following a police report lodged by a resident of Petaling Jaya recently".

"I told the police it is the same tape as I had identified in January last year... I will give my fullest cooperation to the police," he said.

He also said that there was an attempt by some quarters to revive the sex tape to continue "to discredit me, to threaten and cow me into silence".

Rumours have been circulating that Chua's faction will call for an extraordinary general meeting of MCA to remove president Ong Tee Keat through a vote of no-confidence.

It is believed that the redistribution of the DVD is being seen as a way of keeping Chua at bay.

Resident receives DVD in mailbox


The sex scandal resurfaced on Feb 10 after a Kelana Jaya resident discovered in his mailbox an envelope containing a DVD and a letter.

section 292 distribution of obscene pornography books or images 230209The letter instructed the recipient to lodge a police report after watching the video.         

Upon watching the DVD, the resident realised that the DVD was a pornographic video and proceeded to make the police report.

The video, which features a couple having sex in a hotel suite, had first emerged in Johor in December 2007.

After initial denials and media speculation, Chua admitted to being the man in the video on Jan 1, 2008, and thereafter resigned from all his posts, including that of health minister and vice-president of MCA.

Although he staged a comeback last October to win the post of deputy president of MCA, it is believed that he will not be able to resume a ministerial post because of his tainted past.

"I am sure that there are many people who are afraid of the reshuffle in MCA, and they are the ones who will want to sabotage my career by reminding the public of my past mistakes," Chua told a Chinese daily.
While he did not name his rivals, among them is believed to be his estranged boss, MCA president Ong. 
Over the past few months, Ong has been trying hard to sideline his deputy.



The Packing

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 01:53 AM PDT

It's almost close to a year since the marriage officially died.
The mourning period has over expired.

I smsed the 'owner' that I'll sedekah his clothings and belongings.
I'll dump whatever else and let the garbage truck clear them away.
They have stayed behind for far too long.

We want to have some free-flowing, fresh oxygen circulating in the house..
Too much stale air. Our house needs a better ventilation.
Unwanted stuff got to be carted off!
More happiness may start breezing into the home..InsyaAllah.

Hannan had been instructed by her father, to help pack his things in boxes and arrange them at the porch.
He will send a lorry to pick them up when they're ready for transport.

Like any other divorce, this is one vital part of the story that is a must.
The personal belongings of the ex and the journey to a more hopeful, happier life again, for the children..and our separate lives.

But the movie is far from over..the dandy, old emperor wants to give the antique dowager a tough time.
She is not going to be quiet and timid anymore.

Enough of being the clobbered one over the years.

The art of survival and being ruthless must now prevail.
Just because he obtained her for free, that does not mean he can pay her in a cincai way?
I'm afraid that is impossible your Majesty..

The story plot must change..because the heroine is an alien with huge fangs!
She's actually a monster in disguise!
And she's bad! Really evil! *wink2*


Sudah Melampau: Bagaimana Bahan Bukti SPRM 'Dapat Kepada Papagomo?'

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 06:04 AM PDT

Keluarga allahyarham Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamad menimbang untuk membuat laporan polis berhubung satu dakwaan yang disiarkan dalam satu blog pro-Umno bahawa allahyarham antara lainnya mempunyai seorang perempuan simpanan.

Blog berkenaan juga mendakwa bahawa allahyarham bukanlah seorang yang bersih, kata seorang anggota keluarga itu, Makhtar Mansor yang menafikan dakwaan tersebut.

Polis perlu menyiasat dakwaan berkenaan, kata Mokhtar, yang turut akan membuat laporan kepada Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia serta Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM).

Katanya, beliau akan membuat laporan kepada SPRM kerana dakwaan tersebut turut melibatkan bahan bukti yang didakwanya diambil daripada siasatan badan itu ke atas kes melibatkan allahyarham.

Bercakap dalam sidang akhbar di bangunan Parlimen hari ini, Makhtar mendakwa, tulisan dalam blog tersebut turut menyertakan foto yang didakwa sebagai perempuan simpanan berkenaan.

Keluarga allahyarham pergi ke Parlimen untuk menyerahkan memorandum menggesa perdana menteri menubuhkan suruhanjaya diraja untuk membolehkan siasatan kes kematian bekas pegawai kanan jabatan kastam itu dibuka semula.

Makhtar mendakwa, apa yang menimbulkan persoalan adalah bagaimana gambar berkenaan dapat terlepas ke blog berkenaan.

"Macam mana gambar dalam telefon bimbit arwah dapat kepada (blog) papagomo?," soalnya yang mendakwa, foto berkenaan tersimpan di dalam telefon bimbit allahyarham.

Menurutnya, telefon bimbit itu telah dirampas SPRM ketika siasatan dijalankan ke atas pegawai kastam itu.

Makhtar mendakwa wanita di dalam foto berkenaan juga bukanlah seorang wanita simpanan, seperti didakwa blog berkenaan.

Sebaliknya, dakwa beliau, wanita itu merupakan rakan kepada seorang anak perempuan allahyarham.

"Anak arwah telah pinjam telefon arwah untuk rakam gambar tersebut," katanya Makhtar lagi yang juga seorang bekas majistret.

Katanya lagi, pihak keluarga allahyarham telah mengetahui mengenai dakwaan dalam blog tersebut sejak dua minggu lalu.

"Ini yang buat keluarga rasa begitu sedih," katanya lagi. -mk


Tikam Diri Sendiri - Rakan Sekerja Di Infineon

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 04:55 AM PDT

Salam to all & good day,
Hari Selasa lepas, rakan kerja aku meninggal dunia akibat bunuh diri, banyak sangat rumors yang mengatakan dan menceritakan tentang diri beliau, ada yang katakan beliau bunuh diri, ada pula yang mengatakan beliau di bunuh, dan macam-macam lagi, biasa lah mulut orang, tapi memang sukar nak di percayai bahawa beliau telah pun pergi buat selamanya.

Entri ini aku sediakan bagi menghargai beliau sebagai kawan aku yang pernah berkeja sebumbung dengan beliau, aku kenal baliau hampir sepuluh tahun sejak bekerja disini, pada mula aku kerja di sini, beliau memang seorang pekerja yang boleh di katakan seorang yang cukup peramah, dan baik dan tidak lokek ilmu, jika ada sahaja masalah tentang kerja, memang beliau sudi membantu dan menolong jika beliau boleh membantu.

Beliau merupakan seorang yang sangat ceria dan mesra jika kita berjumpa dengan beliau, selalunya beliau yang akan menyapa kita dahulu sebelum sempat menyapa beliau kembali, jika berjumpa pasti tangan dihulurkan dan berjabat tangan, serta tangan pasti akan memeluk bahu seakan-akan seperti kawan yang sangat baik dan rapat, memang tidak di nafikan semua orang memang senang dengan cara kerja dan peribadi beliau semasa bekerja, tapi sayangnya beliau telah pun pergi buat selamanya.

Kematian beliau mendapat liputan meluas pada semua rakan di tempat kerja, banyak yang membahaskan cerita tentang beliau, sungguh banyak cerita dan masih lagi bercerita dengan diri beliau, sebelum sehari hari kematian beliau, pada malam tersebut beliau sempat bersama rakan-rakan sepejabat bermain futsal untuk perlawanan persahabat antara pasukan interdepartment, dan tidak nampak ada tanda-tanda beliau stress tentang kerja beliau, ini kerana nota kekecewaan beliau kerana stress di tempat kerja di jumpai sewaktu beliau terbaring berlumuran darah kerana didapati beliau membunuh diri.

Aku sendiri tidak mahu masuk ke dalam membuat rumors sendiri, biarlah kes ini di siasat oleh polis sendiri dahulu, kerana kes ini di klasifikasi sebagai kes mati mengejut, biar lah polis dan team mereka siasat dan tegakkan kebenaran terlebih dahulu.

Buat keluarga beliau, aku bersimpati dengan isteri dan kedua anak beliau yang baru berumur 7 tahun dan 11 tahun, aku ucapakan takziah atas keluarga beliau atas perkara yang tidak di ingini daripada berlaku, agar isteri dan anak-anak beliau bersabar dan dapat menerima hakikat apa yang telah berlaku, dan rela kan beliau pergi buat selamanya.

Buat Mendiang Foo Yeong Lee, you are the best friend we have since im been here. Good Bye Forever, hope u rest in peace.

ALOR GAJAH –- Seorang suami sempat meninggalkan nota pesanan tulisan tangan kepada isterinya sebelum bertindak membunuh dirinya di dalam sebuah bilik mandi di rumahnya di Taman Seri Bayan, Gangsa, Durian Tunggal, di sini, semalam.

Dalam kejadian jam 6.40 pagi itu, mangsa berumur 38 tahun ditemui terlentang berlumuran darah di dalam bilik mandi tingkat bawah rumahnya oleh isterinya sendiri yang menyedari ketiadaannya pada pagi kejadian.

Ketua Polis Daerah Alor Gajah, Superintendan Umar Ali Saifuddin Shaharudin berkata, isteri mangsa berumur 36 tahun menyedari suaminya tiada di sisi ketika bangun tidur dan turun mencarinya di tingkat bawah.

Menurutnya, isterinya kemudian ke bahagian dapur dan mendapati pintu bilik air berkunci dari dalam.

"Isterinya cuba mengetuk dan memanggil nama suaminya beberapa kali tetapi tidak berjawab.

"Justeru, isterinya bertindak membuka pintu bilik air menggunakan kunci pendua dan terkejut melihat mangsa dalam keadaan terlentang berlumuran darah sebelum menghubungi ambulans," katanya.

Umar Ali Saifuddin berkata, dua bilah pisau ditemui berhampiran mayat mangsa, yang dipercayai digunakan untuk membunuh diri berikutan terdapat tiga kesan tikaman di dada dan perut serta kesan kelar pada pergelangan tangan kiri.

"Mangsa yang bekerja sebagai jurutera di sebuah kilang di Batu Berendam turut meninggalkan sehelai nota pesanan kepada isterinya, yang ditemui bersebelahannya.

"Mangsa berpesan supaya menjaga dua anaknya berusia 7 dan 11 tahun, selain meminta isterinya tidak bersedih dengan kematiannya. Mangsa turut menyatakan dia menghadapi tekanan kerja dan tak mampu selesaikannya sehingga mengambil tindakan membunuh diri," katanya.

Menurutnya, selepas siasatan di tempat kejadian dilakukan, kes diklasifikasikan sebagai mati mengejut.

"Bagaimanapun, siasatan masih dijalankan bagi mengenal pasti punca sebenar kejadian dan mayat mangsa dihantar ke Hospital Melaka untuk bedah siasat," katanya.

Sementara itu, rakan sekerja mangsa, S Seliyan, 38, berkata, mangsa tidak menunjukkan apa-apa :perubahan, malah tetap ceria seperti biasa ketika bersama-sama bermain futsal pada malam sebelum kejadian.

"Kami rapat dan saya sudah mengenalinya lebih lima tahun lalu. Saya terkejut apabila dimaklumkan mangsa meninggal dunia.

"Saya tidak sangka dengan tindakan nekad yang diambilnya kerana dia kelihatan gembira dengan kerja yang dilakukannya," katanya.
