If we take into account all 'racial and religious' sentiments committed by the newspapers, I think almost each and every publication deserves some kind of actions from the Home Ministry.
Not only The Star. Utusan Malaysia, NST, China Press and others should face the music for playing up such sensitive tunes. The Opposition-owned publications too should face the axe from the ministry. And what about pamphlets and other printed material by religious sects all over the country that belittles each other.
Also, may as well we tell the MCMC to screen and censor all similar elements on the Internet so that is won't reach our eyes and mind.
At the same time, ask the government to regulate a much harsher punishment to those involved. Send them to jail, if ours can accommodate them. Our jails would probably be full of journalists, writers, editors, politicians, lawyers and other professionals. Other criminals should spare the space for them.
Come on la bro!
A silly unintentional error does not reflect the mistake of the whole organisation. If an accountant errs in his calculation, we don't need to close the whole bank! The accountant should be put to task instead - issue him a warning or remove him.
I personally don't like the err committed by The Star the other day but to put the publication on suspension will eventually turn out to be a more disastrous decision. The Home Ministry has already issued out a show cause letter to the respective bosses, and I believe that's good enough.
The Star has already taken action against the sub-editor and personnel who made that mistake. An apology was published and that was sufficient enough. To err is human, and I was told the person who chose the picture was not aware of such tattoos on Erykah Badu.
Yes, this is a country that takes Islam as its official religion. However, the Muslims share the country with other faiths - Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. As Muslims, we have to admit that we sometimes make derogatory remarks about other religions too.
So, let's not be carried away by emotion. If we keep asking for 'capital punishment' to be taken each time when such a mistake happens, then we should be willing to take up the punishment ourselves.
Its also no point to cling on to our sentiment for the sake of the party or organisation we lead. If we keep on with such an approach, sooner or later the whole nation will fall apart. There are plenty of ways to settle such disputes in a multiracial Malaysia!
Unless we want to politicise the issue for personal gain or throw it out of proportion.

Ceramah Hasan Ali sudah mula tiada sambutan
Gambar di bawah adalah kehadiran ceramah Hasan Ali di Kampung Melayu Subang malam tadi.Memang pada mula Hasan Ali memulakan "tour" beliau, kelihatan ceramah beliau mendapat sambutan.
Mengikut laporan yang Tulang Besi dapat dari ceramah beliau di Paya Jaras tempohari, majoriti yang hadir dalam ceramah di Paya Jaras tempohari adalah terdiri dari penyokong dan pendokong PAS.
Tujuan mereka hadhir adalah semata-mata mahu mendengar sendiri manusia bernama Hasan Ali mengutuk dan menista PAS.
Apabila PAS dikhianati samada oleh bekas pemimpin ataupun parti kawan, maka ahli2 mahu pergi melihat dan mendengar sendiri orang yang mengkhianati PAS tersebut.
Tulang Besi berpengalaman waktu Semangat 46 dibubarkan serta Tengku Razaleigh mula menghentam PAS serta Tok Guru Nik Aziz.
Waktu itu Ku Li buat road show seluruh negara. Dan Tulang Besi hadhir salah satu ceramah Ku LI tersebut.
Tulang Besi lihat sendiri majoriti yang hadhir dalam ceramah itu adalah penyokong dan pendokong PAS. Perkara yang sama berlaku kepada Hasan Ali.
Namun, di dalam pusingan kedua siri ceramah Hasan Ali ini, kehendak mahu melihat sendiri ini sudah habis.
Maka, tinggalah beberapa kerat penyokong sebenar Hasan Ali yg masih mahu mendengar ceramah beliau seperti di bawah.Tak lama lagi, ceramah Hasan Ali akan sama ramai pendengarnya macam ceramah Zul Nordin.
Allah Maha Kaya.

i wanted to make this post a few days ago but didn't get into it. then i realised today is 29 feb. a day that occurs once in every four years, so i must make a post. so here i am. yes i wanted to write about what happened at the anti-lyans protest in penang on sundya, 26 feb, of which i was present. i try to think of some heading… like my facebook album heading 'umno/perkasa samseng' or something to that effect but i thought i'd better not mention that 3 words. then lo and behold, i came across this article by one othman wahab in the malaysian insider and the heading above came from him. (refer his article, 2nd last line.)
as always, this will be my ramblings on an issue, personal ramblings, so i'm going to write whatever comes out of my mind, straight out. so it is not meant to be a "very good write-up/article!" thingy (like writing for the media or report).
why was that phrase used? you see, lately i'm sure you came across so many incidents of violence and intimidation by umno or perkasa members against the opposition or members of the public (esp. NGO) holding events or forum. remember the ABU/HINDRAF ceramah in klang? then just recently anwar's car was targeted and his daughter, nurul was nearly attacked. then of course we have this gang of thugs from umno and perkasa (it was said the umno youth came all the way from seremban) disrupting the anti-lynas protest in penang. i'm going to talk about this.
it seemed that the police were present when the umno/perkasa hooligans went wild and began shoving and pushing people, yet they didn't do anything. then when the CM was there and he was going to leave, these umno/perkasa samseng try to get near him and also try block his car and hit his car. all this while the police were there but they did not try to stop those umno/perkasa goons. why? especially when it was the chief minister! merely because the police were beholden to umno! they did not want to take action. if it's the other way round… pakatan supporters trying to intimidate umno supporters, you bet the police will come in at once. the proof is there! in a video captured by my fellow CJ (citizen journalist), lim. watch this video and look out esp. around nos. 0150, 0250, 6.00, 7.50. i will put up this video here anyway… including another from bulletin mutiara (penang government).
can you believe it? the CM said those hooligans had called out ""Cina Babi, Penang Cina bodoh, babi sokong Lim Guan Eng Ketua Menteri", and also not forgetting a host of expletives in the hokkien language (which i understand, most people of non chinese like to use e.g. the one that start with 'c', 'p' and 'l'. can you imagine that? weren't they being racist? weren't they being vulgar? yet no action on them… police not charging them, none of the umno/perkasa chief spoke up to condemn them. if it's the other way round… gosh, you will hear at once ibrahim ali crying out for blood… or those umno MP making noises. sadly… they remain silent. what does this tell? the silently support the gangsterish attitude?
NOTE: i'll continue writing here some other day as now it is going to be midnight soon. better post this first before 29 feb flies away! anyway i'll continue writing from here but below you can still see othman wahab articles and the two videos.
Standing up against political gangsterism — Othman Wahab
FEB 29 — What would you do if a group of individuals constantly threatened you, used thuggish language and behaviour to intimidate you and your family, friends and neighbours?
How would you react if your legitimate right to express your opinion or gather as a peaceful assembly to express an opinion on a matter close to your heart, is challenged by gangsters and politicians behaving in such manner?
What would you say if your brother or sister attending a political gathering was assaulted by thugs who are acting with the support of the government?
Would it be acceptable to you if your elected representatives are being threatened with bodily harm, abused with racist epithets and prevented from speaking to Felda settlers by thugs?
Is it alright that journalists or social activists are being threatened by these gangsters and that the police watch like uninterested spectators?
What do we make of police inaction after 10 men were arrested for putting up posters defaming Ambiga Sreenivasan and A. Samad Said of Bersih?
I believe that these are questions we need to answer, because in recent weeks, Mohamed Sabu, Nurul Izzah Anwar, Lim Guan Eng, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and other Opposition members have been threatened by Perkasa and Umno Youth members. Two Chinese newspaper journalists were assaulted.
Mind you, we are not talking about "kongsi gelap" (triads) but state-sponsored intimidation and violence.
One last question: Would you stand idly and give in to this gangsterism by Umno/Perkasa?

Was googling my name, and wow, this article by Roy Goh of the New Straits Times. Tks abuiiii...
Home is where the heart is during Christmas.
KOTA KINABALU, 25 Dec 2011: Shopping for new clothes, presents and merry-making aside, Albert Bingkasan, who works in Kuala Lumpur, believes the joy of Christmas is at home.
"We tend to forget what life really means to us in our everyday life but during Christmas it renews our purpose," said the devout Catholic.
Bingkasan, from Inanam here, believes the event remains relevant for Christians just as it was 2,000 years ago.
"We are reminded of the joys of life when we pray in church and when we celebrate with our loved ones at home."
The midnight mass would be the most popular for most, but for Bingkasan, the 7pm service at the Good Shepherd church in Menggatal here, was his pick last night.
There was no harm though in buying new things, exchanging gifts and gathering with friends to celebrate the event, he said.
Ronie George, 38, and her cousin Natasha Tasius, 21, from Tuaran here, were among those who did some last-minute shopping here.
"Christmas would not be complete without presents for the family," said Ronie.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, in his Christmas message, said the exchange of greetings in the true spirit of harmony had made the country a success story.
"Our country continues to be a fine example of how people of different religions and ethnic groups live side by side, and united in their stand to make Malaysia a success story. We continue to see strength in diversity, a feature that we can be proud of." (By ROY GOH, New Straits Times)

TAN Sri Bernard Dompok, the Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, was a member of a top level Malaysian delegation headed by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, for an audience with His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI on July 18, 2011. Several media organisations had since asked Dompok, who is also Upko president, to share his thoughts about the trip. Due to a tight schedule, he spoke instead with former journalist, Albert Bingkasan , who is now his Special Officer in the ministry in Putrajaya. (This article was published in all the mainstream newspapers and online portals. This particular one was in the Catholic Herald, KL. Yes, its been six months or so after visit, but better late to blog than never... good for file purposes)
Bingkasan: Good morning Tan Sri. Please kindly walk us through the Vatican programme?
Dompok: Bingkasan, good morning. The July 18 audience was at the Pope's summer residence at the Apostolic Palace in
Castel Gendolfo, outside Rome, which is about 45 minutes drive from our accommodation, the Westin Exclesior Hotel. We arrived there at about 11.00am, and soon after, Pope Benedict granted the Prime Minister a private meeting.
After that, Datuk Seri introduced his entourage, namely his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Ministers in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon and Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, National Fatwa Council chairman Prof Tan Sri Dr Abdul Shukor Husin, Kuala Lumpur Archdiocese Archbishop Tan Sri Murphy Nicholas Xavier Pakiam and myself.
Najib then presented the Pope with gifts in the form of a book titled Najib and a framed songket embroidery, followed by a group photograph. Later they ushered us into a separate room for a delegation meeting with Secretary of State of the Holy See, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. We left Castel Gondolfo at about 12.30pm.
It has been reported that the audience's main agenda was to formalise diplomatic relations between Malaysia and the Holy See. Could you elaborate?
Dompok: July 18 will be remembered as the day when diplomatic ties between Malaysia and the Holy See materialised. The journey however started about nine years ago. It was 2002, and the then Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir Mohamad led a delegation for an audience with the late Pope John Paul II. I was there, and diplomatic relations was top of the agenda.
At that time, personally, I was hoping the ties would be formalised sooner rather than later. I was very sad when Pope Paul II passed away in 2005, partly because what we had discussed three years earlier remained just that, a discussion.
What was the problem?
Dompok: I suppose the "delay" if any, was due to a mixture of reasons. I do know, however, that our top leadership had always been very positive to the idea. And Malaysia actually had been very friendly with the Vatican.
That was why, the then Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi asked me to head a Malaysian delegation to represent the country for the funeral of Pope John Paul II. The event itself was an experience of a lifetime, but that's a story for another day.
It must be a real joy for you, sir, to see the completion of the 2002 efforts?
Dompok: Yes, I am indeed very happy. Being Catholic, I am more than hopeful that the significant event will spur further progress for our country and the world. On a personal basis, it is kind of sentimental for me, there is a sense of fulfilment.
I was there when it was first mooted officially, and now, it is complete. It is a mission accomplished, so to speak. I thank Datuk Seri Najib and his predecessors for keeping alive all these while the dreams and wishes of the Christian communities and the Catholics in particular.
For the Prime Minister it is a foreign policy shift just as his father steered the country to recognise China.
Hopeful? The issues that come to mind include solution to the ban for non-Muslims to use the name Allah, the confiscation of Alkitab and apostasy.
Dompok: First of all, we have to take note that the "Allah" and Alkitab issues are still in court. We all know the story. Suffice here for me to reiterate my stand, my party's resolution in calling for the court to resolve the issues soon. It has been dragging too long.
Secondly, while we hail the diplomatic ties, we must also be pragmatic. Such relations do not have magical powers. But I am confident, the ties is a move in the right direction in our efforts to mould and come up with a real One Malaysia community. Problems concerning ethnic relations, religious freedom and the likes could from now onwards be seen in a broader perspective.
We must also remember that our country is still maturing. There will be hiccups here and there. What matters is for us to continue learning, strengthen our unity, work hard and be focussed in what we have all agreed to achieve.
We have the Rukun Negara as our guide, and many other pointers, the latest being the diplomatic ties with Vatican. If we are sincere enough, we will get the desired result for the betterment of all.
Tan Sri, you had the privilege of meeting two Popes. How was it?
Dompok: I am indeed blessed with the opportunity to have met with the head of the Catholic Church. Meeting them, two of them, was a dream come true. It is an experience of a life time.
When I met Pope John Paul II nine years ago, I was filled with joy. You are before holiness itself. And when I left, I felt exhilarated.
That's also how I felt on July 18. It is hard to express in words. But the feeling is real. In both encounters, I also asked the Holy Father to bless me and the Rosaries I had with me. It was very touching, and one that I will always treasure in my life.
The Internet had been abuzz with the visit, Tan Sri. Many were hoping the audience will somehow also transform the Malaysian leaders for the better. Is that a fair comment?
Dompok: I cannot possibly speak on their behalf. I do know that the Prime Minister was very happy with the audience. He was able to bring forward his agenda for the moderates to claim ownership of the middle ground in a world where conflicts abound.
He was also captivated by the scenery, particularly the lake fronting the Castel Gondolfo. It is summer time there now.
On hindsight, the visit brought together leaders from different religious beliefs. Archbishop Pakiam had a good chat with Datuk Seri Jamil and Prof Tan Sri Dr Abdul Shukor. Such meeting would not have happened easily if not for the visit. That in itself is an achievement, a blessing.
Thank you. Thank you, Tan Sri. (THE CATHOLIC HERALD, KL)

Abdul Khalid : Pelantikan Khairy Jamaluddin Tidak Menguntungkan Bumiputera
Perlantikan Ketua Pemuda UMNO, Khairy Jamaluddin sebagai Pengerusi Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB) telah membawa masyarakat Bumiputera ke belakang di mana fahaman dan kepentingan politik menjadi asas kepada pelantikan ke jawatan profesional.
Menurut Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, perlantikan Khairy menghantar isyarat yang salah kepada komuniti Bumiputera yang sekarang digalakkan untuk meningkatkan standard profesionalisme setanding yang terbaik di dunia.
Ini kerana perlantikan MP Rembau itu jelas menunjukkan fahaman politik menjadi kriteria utama untuk dilantik ke jawatan tertinggi dalam syarikat berkaitan kerajaan, bukannya berdasarkan kemampuan dan pengalaman.
"Sebagai salah seorang pengasas PUNB iaitu syarikat milik penuh Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) di mana saya berkhidmat sebagai Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO), saya berbangga dengan pencapaian PUNB yang selama ini diterajui oleh golongan profesional dan berkebolehan.
"Walaupun peringkat pengubal dasar terdiri daripada ahli ahli politik tetapi mereka tidak campur tangan dalam operasi. Malah Ahli Lembaga Pengarah terdiri daripada golongan profesional berpengalaman yang tidak mempunyai kepentingan politik atau kumpulan berkaitan dengan politik," tegasnya.
Tambahnya, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tidak seharusnya mensia-siakan usaha masyarakat Bumiputera dengan melantik Khairy Jamaluddin yang tidak berkeupayaan dan tidak berpengalaman dalam menguruskan badan korporat yang sudah berjaya.
Tegasnya, tindakan Najib sekali lagi membuktikan bahawa beliau gagal mengutamakan antara kepentingan dengan profesionalisme.
Malah Abdul Khalid menyifatkan perlantikan tersebut sebagai petanda yang buruk bagi bumiputera dan Malaysia khasnya.
"Bagi pembangunan negara, pemimpin sepatutnya melihat dalam konteks lebih luas dan berfikir di luar fahaman politik di mana ciri-ciri ini telah diketepikan menerusi pelantikan Khairy Jamaluddin," jelasnya. -tvsnews

After last month's abseiling & white water rafting in Gopeng, a few of my adventure loving friends and I planned for another adventure – to hike up Bukit Larut (formerly known as Maxwell Hill) in Taiping, as part of our training for Kinabalu. And since my friends were coming all the way from KL/Selangor, I figured we might as well make it an overnight outing for them – on Saturday to visit some interesting places near Taiping, and on Sunday morning we'd hike up Bukit Larut.
So yep, last weekend, on Saturday, my friends came from KL, picked me up in Ipoh and off I went together with them. We had not gone far when a client called. Nope, it wasn't the client-assigned MI ringtone, but the general tone. Wan, the Orang Asli lady called using another number, very likely her brother's, because her own phone ran out of credit. She was supposed to go to Ipoh GH to get her monthly supply of ARV on that very day but didn't have any money to come to Ipoh. After making sure she still had enough supply of ARV to last her for a few more days at least, I told her I'd get back to her on Monday.
Thank God after that there were no more calls to disturb my weekend retreat.
Our first stop was slightly north of Taiping. We went to Bukit Merah. First destination… Orangutan Island (hey, who says we've got to go to Borneo to have a look at Orangutans in the wild, huh?)
Then off to Bukit Merah Ecopark… to have a close-up look at some other animals. Quite a number of them, including…
We didn't go to the Water Park though. After Ecopark, we went straight to the homestay in Kamunting which I had booked earlier, and after Maghrib, the next destination was the Taiping Zoo Night Safari…
Early Sunday morning was the much awaited hike up Bukit Larut. None of us had done that before. Yes, maybe one or two of us had gone up there by jeep many years ago, but going up on foot? We didn't really know what to expect. But up we went anyway – the initial part through a jungle trail…
Then the next maybe two thirds or more of the way using the tarred road.
Little did we expect that we would have to walk uphill for almost 10km!! From what I've been reading on the internet, the average time people would take to hike all the way up was about 3 hours. But with lots and lots of photo-session stops, we ended up having to walk uphill for almost 4 hours before we finally made it to this signage!
No more photo session stops for me on the way down, so I managed to walk all the way down in 2 hours 35 minutes.
Just 2 days later, I was back in Taiping again. This time for clinic duty. It had been quite a while since I came for clinic duty in Taiping. The last one was 4 months ago I think. Only saw one case this time. 2 guys came into the room, the older guy looked Chinese, the younger one looked Malay… but the older guy said the younger one was his brother. Found out that they were actually Siamese Malaysians. I saw that the family needed help, and since the client was male, I decided to assign my vice-chairman to handle this case.
When I got out of the hospital building and as I was walking to my car parked outside, I took a look at the hills, and saw one with telecommunication towers. Ahh, that was the hill we actually went up to by foot last Sunday!

Shah Alam, 28 Feb: Pengerusi Parti Keadilan Rakyat Johor, Datuk Chua Jui Meng meminta rakyat memilih pemimpin yang menganjurkan perjuangan berteraskan al-Quran dan Hadis kerana idealisme perjuangan politik Islam menekankan kebaikan untuk semua.
Tegasnya, walaupun terdapat perbezaan pendapat antara parti komponen Pakatan Rakyat, namun Pas, DAP dan PKR tidak memperjuangkan kepentingan kaum tertentu. Sebaliknya, Pakatan memperjuangkan hak semua kaum berlandaskan Perlembagaan.
"Saya 40 tahun dalam Barisan Nasional (Umno-BN), kita tidak begitu faham Islam. Tetapi sekarang kita bersama dengan Pas dan PKR, saya faham atas idealisme Islam itu yang nak membawa kemakmuran kepada semua," kata Jui Meng yang pernah menyandang jawatan Naib Presiden MCA.
"Dulu Umno tidak beritahu dan mengajar saya berkaitan al-Quran, Hadis dan lain-lain termasuk Menteri Agama," katanya dalam Wacana anjuran Sinar Harian yang bertajuk 'Mengapa Undi Melayu Berpecah'.
Jelas beliau, perosalan adakah undi Melayu pecah tidak relevan kerana perkara pokok yang perlu ditumpukan adalah memastikan hak semua terbela meskipun terdapat perbedaan dari segi fikiran, prinsip dan idealisme.
"Bila saya masuk kampung Melayu semasa menjadi Menteri Kesihatan dulu, saya tengok ramai orang Melayu yang miskin. Dan, ada anak-anak Orang Asal saya diberitahu mereka sanggup meletakkan pasir bagi mengisi perut. Kita sepatutnya memusatkan kepentingan rakyat, bukan kroni," katanya.
Ideologi memperjuangkan hak semua kaum merupakan tunjang kepada dasar-dasar di dalam Buku Jingga Pakatan, katanya.
Jui Meng berkata keberkesanan Buku Jingga telah dibuktikan oleh kerajaan Selangor di bawah pimpinan Tan Sri Abdul Khalid yang memperkenalkan gaji minima RM1,500 kepada anak syarikat kerajaan negeri bermula tahun ini. -tvsnews

For the first time in many years, my husband sent me an email. :-)
Contrary to what some might think, it is not a love letter in response to my post on The Love Letter but the following post. Enjoy! :-) Have a lovely evening!
A child was asked to write a book report on the entire Bible. This is amazing and brought tears of laughter to my eyes.
The Children's Bible in a Nutshell
In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says,'The Lord thy God is one', but I think He must be a lot older than that.
Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did.
Then God made the world.
He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one badapple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden.....Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn't have cars.
Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel.
Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.
One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would have to take a rain check.
After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.
Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable.
God fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your neighbour's stuff.
Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humour thy father and thy mother.
One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town.
After Joshua came David. He got to be King by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very wise to me.
After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then got barfed up on the shore.
There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have to worry about them.
After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of The New. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying to me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It would be nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was!')
During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Democrats.
Jesus also had twelve opossums.
The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.
Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount.
But the Democrats and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.
Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminium. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.

Shah Alam: Ahli Parlimen Sabak Bernam Abdul Rahman Bakri hari ini didapati bersalah terhadap lapan pertuduhan tuntutan palsu yang berjumlah RM80,000, tiga tahun lalu.
Abdul Rahman, 46, didakwa melakukan kesalahan itu semasa beliau menjadi Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Sungai Air Tawar mewakili Barisan Nasional (BN).
Hakim Mahkamah Sesyen Azhaniz Teh Azman Teh membuat keputusan tersebut selepas mendapati pihak pendakwaan berjaya mengemukakan bukti tanpa keraguan munasabah.
Selain itu, mahkamah turut mendapati pembantu Abdul Rahman, Rosli Busro, 43, bersalah terhadap pertuduhan bersubahat dalam melakukan semua lapan kesalahan yang didakwa.
Hakim bagaimanapun bersetuju untuk menjatuhkan hukuman terhadap Abdul Rahman dan Rosli pada pukul 11 pagi esok.
Ini berikutan permintaan peguam bela mewakili kedua-dua tertuduh Affifuddin Hafifi dan Lim Kon Keen yang mahukan sedikit masa untuk menyediakan mitigasi serta rayuan terhadap hukuman yang bakal dikenakan.
Selaku ejen kerajaan Malaysia, Abdul Rahman didakwa dengan niat untuk memperdaya prinsipalnya dengan menggunakan surat Adun yang mengandungi butiran palsu membuat tuntutan ke atas program atau aktiviti yang sebenarnya tidak dilaksanakan.
Antaranya pembelian hadiah dan cenderamata serta penganjuran jamuan Program Motivasi Pelajar Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) dan Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) di kawasannya.
Beliau juga didakwa membuat tuntutan menggunakan butiran palsu mengenai Program Mesra Rakyat dan Hari Keluarga KRT di Dun Sungai Air Tawar, Program Forum Perdana Peringkat Mukim Bagan Nakhoda Omar, program Mesra Rakyat dan Hari Keluarga Guru-guru Kemas serta Program Mesra Rakyat serta sambutan Maulud Nabi.
Semua tuntutan palsu itu membabitkan jumlah RM10,000 setiap satu.
Kesalahan itu didakwa dilakukan tertuduh antara 21 Januari hingga 12 Februari 2008 di Pejabat Daerah Sabak Bernam.
Pendakwaan dilakukan mengikut Seksyen 11(c) Akta Pencegahan Rasuah 1997 dan boleh dihukum mengikut Seksyen 16 Akta sama.
Seksyen tersebut memperuntukkan hukuman penjara maksimum 20 tahun dan denda RM10,000 atau lima kali nilai suapan, yang mana lebih tinggi, jika sabit kesalahan.

As I contemplate the much-needed and long-planned reinvigoration of my blog, I can't help but think that maybe I should also do something with the Chronicles of Duncan MacLeod series, like maybe a kind of 'reboot'. A lot has changed in the almost three years since the first post in the series, most notably the passing of my grandfather (yes, Duncan MacLeod) last August. There have been plenty of minor changes as well, which mostly means I've been going back and editing old posts, deleting some, rearranging the chronology, etc. Basically I feel like the series has kind of got away from me and I need to pull it back, put it in order, blow the dust off it, and make it shine.
While I contemplate that (and inevitably get distracted by other things), here's a story about young Duncan MacLeod and his little brother Hughie.
One of Duncan MacLeod's favourite activities while he was spending the summer at his uncle Dan's place on River Denys Mountain was his daily teasing of a big black bull that lived on a nearby farm. Duncan and Hughie would walk up to the fence that kept the bull in and make all sorts of noise, with grand gestures just in case the creature didn't notice their voices (though it always did). The bull may not have understood the insults the boys were throwing at it, but it would be furious within moments, bowing its head and snorting before tearing up the ground and charging towards the fence. It would do this every time, sending the boys leaping from the fence and scurrying away. Duncan and Hughie would get around the corner and tumble into a laughing heap. After catching their breath, they would go back and do it again.
One day the boys were on their way to the farm where the bull lived when they were stopped in their tracks by a fearsome sight. On the road, walking right towards them, was the black bull. As usual, the boys waved their arms, screamed, turned and ran. But this time there was no laughter. Duncan and Hughie MacLeod were running for their lives.
Duncan knew they'd never outrun the bull. He'd seen how fast it could make it to the fence. He didn't know which one of them would be gored and trampled first, but he knew it would happen in mere seconds. He knew they were both doomed.
The trees. If Duncan could get to the trees, maybe he could climb high enough that the bull couldn't get him. He veered to the left and leaped at a thick branch that was just low enough for him to reach. He was running so hard he couldn't yell for Hughie to do the same. He only hoped his brother would be alert enough to follow him. Hughie always followed him.
Hughie followed Duncan, almost pulling him down as he scrambled up into the tree. The boys climbed as fast as they could, stopping only when they were almost to the top. When they looked down, they saw…nothing. For some reason, the bull wasn't anywhere in sight. The boys looked at each other, still too out of breath to speak, their chests heaving, their eyes wide. Then it appeared.
Through the leaves, Duncan saw the black mass of the bull moving slowly down the road towards the tree. It disappeared from view but then he saw it again, for just a moment. It appeared and reappeared between the leaves maybe once or twice a minute. It was waiting for them.
Hughie started to cry. "What are we gonna do, Dunc? It's gonna get us!"
"Oh go on," Duncan said. "We'll just wait here a little while and it'll go away. It can't climb up here. Just wait a few minutes."
A few minutes turned into a few hours. The bull was still there. Hughie was still crying.
"Dunc, I'm tired!"
Duncan was tired too. Why was the bull still there? Duncan began to think he had completely underestimated the massive animal. This creature, which had before seemed capable of nothing but blind rage, was now playing with them, waiting them out. It was carrying out its revenge. It was pure evil. It was–
"Oh my god!" Duncan yelled. The creature had finally stopped in the space between the leaves and remained there long enough for him to get a good look at it. "It's…"
It was a cow.

Fusion Of Thai & Nyonya At Malabar Restaurant (Invited Food Session) – Last month, I was invited to join a bunch of Penang food hungry bloggers to check out this new restaurant in George Town – Malabar (Dine & Chill) Restaurant.
Malabar Restaurant is located at the corner of Kampong Malabar, the junction of Cintra Street & Kampong Malabar. They serves Thai & Nyonya cuisine there, so don't be surprise when Thai food has a sense of Nyonya, and Nyonya has a sense of Thai. It's not authentically Thai & Nyonya, but the food special, fusionised, and good, affordable too.
Besides serving food, they have rooms for tourist which serve as a lodging motel with affordable price. The trend of restaurant + room is getting popular in George Town, especially in colonial-style shop houses.
On that day, we were served more than 10 dishes of their specialty food. Hungry me was so busying filling up my stomach and also taking photograph of the food. Let's get into the photos and food below.
