Pemuda PAS: K'jaan anjur 'maksiat' di Hari Belia

Kehadiran artis seksi dari Korea di program Hari Belia menunjukkan kerajaan kini ketandusan idea untuk menarik sokongan golongan muda sehingga sanggup menganjurkan "program maksiat," menurut Dewan Pemuda PAS.

Ketua penerangan sayap parti itu, Riduan Mohd Nor berkata, persembahan oleh kumpulan artis "seksi" itu "tidak lebih daripada usaha untuk menyuburkan kemungkaran di kalangan generasi muda," katanya dalam satu kenyataan.

"Dengan menampilkan artis seksi sebagai hidangan masyarakat, kerajaan menganggap itu sebagai suatu perkara yang biasa dan tidak ada salahnya.

"Mungkin inilah nilai wassatiyyah yang hendak diterapkan oleh perdana menteri," katanya sinis.

Program Hari Belia di Putrajaya yang diadakan sepanjang hujung minggu lalu antara lainnya menampilkan kumpulan Korea, U-Kiss, Dal Shabet dan Teen Top.

Penganjur mendakwa lebih dua juta menyertai program tersebut.

Sambutan itu turut dicemari tragedi apabila salah sebuah kereta terlibat dalam kemalangan ketika acara perlumbaan kereta dalam sambutan tersebut.

Dalam kejadian itu, seramai 17 orang penonton cedera akibat dirempuh oleh kenderaan tersebut.

Tiga daripadanya cedera parah. -mk

Hadith Rasulullah saw:

"Apabila maksiat sudah merajalela di kalangan umatku, Allah akan menurunkan bala dari sisi-Nya kepada mereka secara merata…" -HR. Ahmad dll

Kemalangan acara Drag Race itu sepatutnya pembuka mata, itu baru mukaddimah kepada bala yang lebih besar yang bakal menimpa.

Apabila Allah s.w.t. dicabar, maka tunggu sahaja habuan daripadaNya.

Dan ia juga adalah permulaan kepada satu sistem pemerintahan yang baru. Kelak, Allah s.w.t. akan menggantikan mereka itu dengan satu kepimpinan yang lebih baik.

The Unforgettable One

Posted: 28 May 2012 08:48 AM PDT

Watching movies used to be my favourite past-time before blogging mania hit me in 2008. I have an extensive dvd library and book collection. Whilst I have returned to reading after I decided that staying away from politics and any kind of activism would keep me saner and happier, I have yet to return to watching movies. My younger boy is a more voracious reader than I am for this week itself, he has already read three books - and is finishing the third in Isabel Allende's trilogy while I am still plodding on in Siri Hustvedt's "The Blindfold".

To break the monotony of reading, I listened to some music thanks to fellow blogger Shadower and somehow, my mind wandered to Mr. Holland's Opus.

That movie means a lot to me because it brings together my background in music, career as an educator, struggles and challenges faced and overcome not forgetting the paths that both my boys have taken in their pursuit if musical excellence.

Thanks to YouTube, you can watch the whole movie HERE.

If you only intend to watch ONE movie this year, you HAVE to watch Mr. Holland's Opus!!!
The best clips from the movie that I love are:

An American Symphony - Mr Holland's Opus This is one piece that makes me cry soooo much even though I have watched it so many times!!!!

Rowena's Theme

Someone to Watch Over Me

Play the Sunset I can really connect with this scene and all it means.

Rowena singing the Unfinished Song - The one that makes my hair stand, the one that makes me remember the first time I fell in love decades ago...

According to Wikipedia:

In 1965, Glenn Holland (Richard Dreyfuss) is a talented musician and composer who has been relatively successful in the exhausting life of a professional musical performer. However, in an attempt to enjoy more free time with his young wife, Iris (Glenne Headly), and to enable him to compose a piece of orchestral music, the 30-year-old Holland accepts a teaching position.

Unfortunately for Holland, he is soon forced to realize that his position as a music teacher makes him a marginalized figure in the faculty's hierarchy. For instance, he comes face to face with how seriously he is outranked by the high school's football coach (Jay Thomas), who ultimately becomes his best friend. Administrators either dislike him, such as assistant principal Gene Wolters (William H. Macy), or push him relentlessly, such as principal Helen Jacobs (Olympia Dukakis). It is Ms. Jacobs' scolding that helps Holland turn a corner. He entered the teaching profession with a view toward a temporary "gig," running to his car at the end of the day faster than his students could run to theirs. Reluctantly, he begins to see his students as individuals and finds ways to help them excel.

The film marks the passing decades with newsreels about Vietnam -- corresponding to the tragic combat death of one young man that Holland guided through a stint as marching-band drummer -- and the death of John Lennon in 1980. The passage of time and the mysteries of personal growth are a constant underlying theme in this film.

Holland's lack of quality time with Iris becomes problematic when their son, Cole, is diagnosed as deaf. Glenn reacts with hostility to the news that he can never teach the joys of music to his own child. Iris willingly learns American Sign Language to communicate with her son, but Glenn resists. This causes further estrangement within the family.

Through three decades, Mr. Holland is closer to students at John F. Kennedy High School than he is to his own son. At one point in the film, he is briefly tempted by the shining talent of a young female student, who invites him to leave his stressful, unsatisfying life and run off to New York.

He addresses a series of challenges created by people who are either skeptical of—or hostile towards—the idea of musical excellence within the walls of a typical middle-class American high school. He inspires many students, but never has private time for himself or his family, forever delaying the composition of his own orchestral composition. Ultimately, he reaches an age when it is too late to realistically find financial backing or ever have it performed.

In 1995, the adversaries of the Kennedy High music program win a decisive institutional victory. Holland's longtime adversary Wolters, promoted to school principal when Jacobs retires, works with the school board to eliminate music (along with the rest of the fine arts program) in the name of necessary budget cuts, thereby leading to Mr. Holland's ignominious dismissal at the age of 60. Glenn is a realist who realizes that his working life is over. He believes that his former students have mostly forgotten him.

On his final day as a teacher, the despairing Mr. Holland is led to the school auditorium, where his professional life is surprisingly redeemed. Hearing that their beloved teacher is leaving, hundreds of his pupils have secretly returned to the school to celebrate his life.

Mr. Holland's orchestral piece, never before heard in public, has been put before the musicians by his wife and son. One of his most musically challenged students, Gertrude Lang (Alicia Witt (young) /Joanna Gleason (adult)), who has become governor of the state, sits in with her clarinet. Gertrude and the other alumni ask the retiring teacher to serve as their conductor for the premiere performance of Mr. Holland's Opus ("The American Symphony"). A proud Iris and Cole look on, appreciating the affection and respect that Mr. Holland receives.

I confess I am a die-hard Richard Dreyfuss fan and by far, this movie showcases his BEST performance in his acting career!!! And I guess I am the kind who simply loves hopeful and inspirational movies. I just hope that I have been like Mr Holland to help students achieve their dreams. A touching and moving film, Mr Holland's Opus is definitely an uplifting and life-affirming winner that will surely leave you teary-eyed with lumps in your throat.


A Question or Two

Posted: 28 May 2012 07:51 AM PDT

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhoea...
does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages?
Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

If people from Poland are called Poles,
then why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a racecar is not called a racist?

If it's true that we are here to help others,
then what exactly are the others here for?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked,
then doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

Do Lipton Tea employees take 'coffee breaks?

What hair colour do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
(I have wondered this for years!!!)

I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use.

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office?
What are we supposed to do, write to them?
Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail?

Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?

If a cow laughed, would milk come out of her nose?

As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice:
When you put the two words 'The ' and 'IRS' together,
it spells 'THEIRS'?

A young couple got married and went on their honeymoon.

When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother.

"Well," said her mother, "how was the honeymoon?"

"Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon as wonderful! So romantic..."

Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned Sam started using the most horrible language - things I'd never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got to take me home... PLEASE MAMA!"

"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work this out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? WHAT 4-letter words?"

"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter, "I'm so embarrassed they're just too awful! COME GET ME, PLEASE!!"

"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell your mother these horrible 4-letter words!"

Still sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, Mama ... he used words like: dust, wash, iron, cook..."

"I'll pick you up in twenty minutes," said the mother.


A woman is learning how to golf. She has been teaching herself to play for more than three months and she is really bad. She decides to consult a golf pro.

When she sees the golf pro, she explains how bad she is and he tells her to go ahead and hit the ball. She does. The ball goes about 50 yards into the brush slicing to the right. The golf pro says to the woman, "I can see that you have a lot of problems. Your stance is bad, your head is all over the place, and the worst thing is that grip."

When she asks what can be done to fix the situation, he suggests, "Grab the club gently, as if you were grabbing your husband's "club". When the feeling is right, go ahead and swing." She does just that and the ball goes off the tee perfectly straight for about 275 yards.

The golf pro says to the woman, "That is unbelievable, I didn't think you would do that well. But now on to your next problem... How are we going to get that golf club out of your mouth?"


An old man is walking down the street one afternoon when he sees a woman with perfect breasts.

He says to her, "Hey miss, would you let me BITE your br****s for $100?"

"Are you nuts?!" she replies, and keeps walking away.

He turns around, runs around the block and gets to the corner before she does. "Would you let me bite your br****s for $1,000?" he asks again.

"Listen you; I'm not that kind of woman! Got it?"

So the little old man runs around the next block and faces her again, "Would you let me bite your br****s - just once - for $10,000?!"

She thinks about it for a while and says, "Hmmmmm, $10,000... Ok, just once, but not here. Let's go to that dark alley over there."

So they go into the alley, where she takes off her blouse to reveal the most perfect br****s in the world.

As soon as he sees them, he grabs them and starts caressing them, fondling them slowly, kissing them, licking them, burying his face in them - but not biting them.

The woman finally gets annoyed and asks, 'Well? Are you gonna bite them or not?'

"Nah," says the little old man... "Costs too much!"


Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee.

The first Catholic man tells his friends, "My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'."

The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'."

The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a Cardinal.. When he enters a roomeveryone says 'Your Eminence'."

The fourth Catholic man then says, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'."

Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well....?"

She proudly replies, "I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breast, 24" waist and 34" hips. When she walks into a room, people say, "Oh My God."


An elderly man goes into his doctors office for an annual physical. After a while, the doctor comes out and says, "I'm sorry Bill, but we have discovered you have a condition which only allows you another 6 weeks to live."

"But Doctor," Bill replied, "I feel great. I haven't felt better in years. This just can't be true. Isn't there anything I can do?"

After a moment the doctor said, "Well, you might start going down the street to that new health spa and take a mud bath every day."

Excitedly Bill asked, "And that will cure me?"

"No," replied the doctor, "but it will get you used to the dirt."

Pemuda Londehkan Seluar Depan Hakim

Posted: 28 May 2012 08:36 AM PDT

Kuala Terengganu - Mahkamah Majistret, di sini, semalam gempar apabila pemuda yang dituduh atas kesalahan mencuri di sebuah kedai menjual haiwan peliharaan, melondehkan seluarnya sejurus masuk ke dalam kandang tertuduh.

Gambar: Mohd Khairul Hamimi didakwa mencuri 50 burung banji dan 45 arnab di Mahkamah Majistret, semalam.

Perlakuan tertuduh, Mohd Khairul Hamimi Mohd Sabri, 25, yang separuh bogel itu telah menggemparkan suasana di mahkamah, sebelum Majistret Abdul Hayyi Salim terpaksa mengarahkan polis bertugas agar menggari kedua belah tangannya sepanjang pertuduhan dijalankan.

Bukan itu sahaja, dia yang berasal dari Kampung Tebakang, Bukit Payung, Marang turut meracau-racau kononnya menampakkan dia seorang yang tidak waras sambil memohon agar mahkamah menghantar dirinya ke wad sakit jiwa kerana mendakwa sudah lama tidak makan ubat.

"Bos (Majistret), saya memang melakukan curi itu tetapi bos masukkan saya dalam hospital sebab saya gila. Sekarang ini, kepala saya tengah sakit dan saya perlu makan ubat," katanya yang telah menarik perhatian orang awam yang berada di galeri awam mahkamah.

Terdahulu, Mohd Khairul Hamimi mengangguk faham ketika pertuduhan mengikut Seksyen 457 Kanun Keseksaan kerana melakukan pecah rumah dibacakan oleh jurubahasa.

Berdasarkan pertuduhan, dia didakwa pada 22 Mei lalu jam lebih kurang 7 petang hingga 23 Mei lalu jam lebih kurang 8.55 pagi bertempat di kedai menjual Haiwan Peliharaan dan Aquarium Ming Yu Two, Jalan Hiliran Masjid, Chabang 3, telah melakukan pecah rumah dan curi dengan memasuki kedai milik Lim Chew Siang, 41, dengan mencuri 50 ekor burung banji dalam sangkar dan 45 ekor arnab dalam sangkar besi yang dianggarkan RM5,000.

Mohd Khairul Hamimi didakwa melakukan kesalahan di bawah Seksyen 457 Kanun Keseksaan yang memperuntukkan penjara boleh sampai 14 tahun dan denda jika disabitkan kesalahan.

Bagaimanapun tiada sebarang pengakuan direkodkan dan Abdul Hayyi kemudiannya memerintahkan Mohd Khairul Hamimi dihantar ke Hospital Permai, Tampoi, Johor Bahru untuk menjalani rawatan psikiatri selama sebulan dan menetepkan 24 Jun depan sebagai tarikh sebutan semula kes.

Pendakwaan dikendalikan Pegawai Pendakwa, Inspektor Miky Anak Dunstan Muda manakala tertuduh tidak diwakili peguam. -SH

Sebelum ini negara digemparkan dengan keberanian Imam Hosnan membaling kasutnya kepada hakim.

Isu Perumahan Penjawat Awam

Posted: 28 May 2012 03:26 AM PDT

27 Mei 2012

Isu Perumahan Penjawat Awam

Keadilan memandang serius kecenderungan Kerajaan Barisan Nasional yang sejak mutakhir ini menggubal dasar–dasar jangka pendek yang nampak lunak dan mesra Rakyat pada mulanya tetapi sebenarnya indah khabar dari rupa, bersifat sementara dan tidak menangani sebarang permasalahan secara tuntas.

Pendedahan Cuepacs bahawa lebih kurang 60% penjawat awam berpendapatan bulanan di bawah RM3,000 di seluruh negara khususnya di Lembah Kelang tidak mampu memiliki rumah sendiri merupakan satu lagi bukti jelas kegagalan Kerajaan Barisan Nasional merangka dasar-dasar jangka panjang yang boleh menjamin kesejahteraan Rakyat terutamanya berkait kediaman berkualiti.

Sebagai salah satu kaedah untuk meningkatkan kemampuan para penjawat awam memiliki rumah sendiri, KEADILAN menuntut agar kadar faedah pinjaman perumahan bagi penjawat awam pada tahap 4% sekarang diturunkan segera sekurang-kurangnya kepada 2.5% hingga 3.5% sebagai permulaan. Julat ini selari dengan kadar faedah pinjaman perumahan yang dinikmati oleh staf institusi perbankan dan kewangan.

Dengan pendapatan bulanan kekal di bawah RM3,000 biarpun sudah berpuluh tahun berkhidmat, maka tidaklah menghairankan jika kemampuan penjawat awam berpangkat rendah ini untuk memiliki rumah sendiri dengan kualiti yang memuaskan sangat terbatas dan hanya mampu menyewa atau hanya memiliki rumah kos rendah bertaraf Program Perumahan Rakyat Termiskin memandangkan kenaikan mendadak harga hartanah beberapa tahun kebelakangan ini. Kenaikan purata harga rumah di Malaysia pada tahun 2011 berdasarkan Indeks Harga Rumah ialah pada kadar 9.9% di mana kadar kenaikan adalah lebih tinggi di Lembah Kelang, yakni 12.2% bagi Kuala Lumpur dan 11.3% bagi Selangor.

Akibatnya, Elaun Tetap Perumahan yang diberi masih tidak mencukupi untuk menampung kos pemilikan rumah kerana bebanan kos sara hidup keseluruhan yang ditanggung oleh penjawat awam berpendapatan rendah di kawasan bandar terutamanya di Lembah Kelang adalah berkali ganda lebih tinggi.

Ini menyerlahkan lagi kegagalan skim "My First Home" yang diperkenalkan pada tahun 2011 kerana institusi kewangan tidak mungkin dapat memberikan pinjaman 100% kepada mereka yang bergaji bawah RM3,000. Sebagai ilustrasi, pinjaman bagi rumah berharga RM400,000, jika dibayar pada kadar 4.3% selama 30 tahun akan menyebabkan individu tersebut terpaksa membayar sebanyak RM1,780 sebulan, lebih separuh daripada pendapatan seseorang individu bergaji RM3,000 sebulan.

Justeru, KEADILAN menggesa agar SSM bagi penjawat awam berpendapatan rendah diperhalusi lagi dengan sistem kenaikan gaji dan elaun yang lebih teratur dan mencerminkan realiti kenaikan harga keperluan asas, sekaligus meningkatkan peluang dan hak mereka untuk memiliki kediaman pada kualiti yang memuaskan. Malah, sebagai langkah lanjutan dalam usaha mengawal kenaikan mendadak harga rumah, KEADILAN menyarankan rundingan dengan pemaju perumahan diadakan untuk mencapai persetujuan mengawal margin keuntungan mereka dalam julat yang munasabah bagi segmen perumahan mampu milik dan kos sederhana.

Yang membimbangkan, sehingga hari ini, kita masih belum mendengar sebarang khabar berita mengenai Suruhanjaya Mengkaji Skim Gaji dan Elaun Penjawat Awam yang dijanjikan oleh PM Najib pada 8 Mac 2012.

Ketidakadilan dan kecenderungan berat sebelah jelas menjadi mercu tanda Kerajaan Barisan Nasional. Ambil perbandingan kenaikan gaji penjawat awam berlainan kategori dalam SBPA yang diumumkan pada bulan Februari 2012 (yang kemudiannya dibatalkan dan digantikan dengan SSM yang ditambahbaik) sebagai contoh. Dalam cadangan SBPA, penjawat awam tinggi sepatutnya menikmati kenaikan di antara RM30, 000 hingga RM40,000 sedangkan penjawat awam berpangkat rendah hanya dijangka menikmati kenaikan di antara RM10 hingga RM20.

Kesibukan mengeluarkan kenyataan demi kenyataan bak silap mata ketika membuat pelbagai pengumuman yang pada mulanya kelihatan bernas tetapi akhirnya terbukti hanyalah janji kosong (penggabungan MAS-AirAsia yang gagal / ETP yang tidak dinikmati Rakyat kebanyakkan / "durian busuk" hasil penyenaraian FGVH / pembangunan semula Kg Baru yang bakal mengenepikan masyarakat Melayu bandar dan banyak lagi) hanya mencerminkan Kerajaan Barisan Nasional yang ketandusan idea dan hanya sibuk hendak mempertahankan kuasa dengan politik samseng seperti yang berlaku pada "Malam Berdarah Lembah Pantai".

KEADILAN yakin bahawasanya Rakyat sudah mulai sedar bahawa selagi negara masih belum menikmati demokrasi sepenuhnya, selagi itu kerajaan tidak akan merasa perlu untuk menjaga hati, hak dan kepentingan Rakyat. Justeru, Rakyat wajib menuntut tiga perkara dasar agar kerajaan lebih memberi fokus terhadap Rakyat:

Pertama, menjamin Pilihanraya Bebas dan Adil agar Rakyat menjadi tuan di bumi Malaysia di mana Rakyat akan menikmati pentadbiran kerajaan yang mewakili aspirasi Rakyat hasil daripada 'pertandingan politik' yang semestinya akan dinilai sebagai pilihan terbaik di peti undi;

Kedua, melaksanakan Reformasi Parlimen di mana konsep penubuhan Jawatankuasa Tetap Parlimen di dalam bidang utama pentadbiran kerajaan termasuklah Perkhidmatan Awam yang dapat memantau dan menjadi timbang-tara bagi sebarang muslihat dan helah Kerajaan Pusat;

Ketiga, membasmi rasuah dan ketirisan ekonomi agar pembinaan perumahan untuk Rakyat tidak perlu disengajakan mahal untuk keuntungan orang tengah atau menggunakan dana KWSP akibat kekurangan sumber kewangan kerajaan. Usaha murni ini juga memerlukan penjawat awam memainkan peranan beramanah melalui Akta Perlindungan Pemberi Maklumat dengan mendedahkan segala bentuk rasuah terutamanya dalam penganugerahan kontrak atau konsensi yang berat sebelah pada kos yang tidak berpatutan dan merugikan Rakyat serta sebarang dasar yang membahayakan kepentingan awam dan mengancam kedaulatan negara.

Hanya dengan kerjasama semua pihak menuntut tiga perkara dasar negara demokrasi ini akan menjamin kepentingan semua pihak termasuklah memelihara hak dan kebajikan penjawat awam.

SPR Hilang Mandat Kendali Pilihanraya Berdasarkan Kaji Selidik - BERSIH

Posted: 28 May 2012 05:38 AM PDT

Kuala Lumpur, 27 Mei — Tinjaun terbaru di Dataran Merdeka membuktikan bahawa pengundi sudah hilang keyakinan terhadap sistem pilihan raya kini termasuk peranan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR), kata pemerhati Bersih hari ini.

Menurut Pengerusi Bersih Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, natijah kepada tinjauan terbabit telah mendapati bahawa sistem pilihanraya berusaha untuk menubuhkan sebuah pasukan untuk memenuhi keperluan politik bagi PRU akan datang.

Tinjauan itu dilakukakn sehari selepas ribuan perusuh berhimpun pada Bersih 28 April lalu yang menemukan sembilan daripada sepuluh pengundi mahukan sistem pilihanraya yang bersih sebelum menjelang PRU ke-13.

Tinjauan oleh Merdeka Centre berhasil mendapatkan hampir separuh daripada 1,019 pengundi yang berdaftar yang percaya daftar pemilih mempunyai pengundi diragui termasuk warga asing.

"Keyakinan rakyat adalah isu besar, rakyat sedar bahawa SPR tidak melaksanakan tanggungjawab mereka untuk meyakinkan rakyat bukannya keluar mendabik dada.

"SPR hanya pekerja dan telah lama mendapat kepercayaan rakyat," kata Ambiga kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Apabila ditanya mengenai tinjauan yang membawa keputusan bahawa SPR sudah kehilangan mandat sebagai badan bebas pilihan raya negara ini, Ambiga (gambar) berkata :"Ya, saya percaya."

"Ini menunjukkan bukan sahaja kaji selidik tersebut, tapi dibuktikan dengan kehadiran 250,000 ketika perhimpunan Bersih.

"Beban itu bukan sahaja ditanggung SPR, tapi pihak berkuasa juga perlu memastikan pembaharuan pilihan raya dilaksankan," katanya.

Kaji selidik itu menyebelahi Bersih,"
kata Ambiga.

Beliau berkata hasil kaji selidik itu turut menunjukkan pengundi Malaysia menuntut akauntabiliti daripada SPR dan suruhanjaya itu tidak boleh membiarkan perkara itu.

"Rakyat tidak membeli penyelesaian ... SPR juga tidak seharusnya memikirkan yang masyarakat tidak mengetahui apa yang mereka perkatakan, mereka bukan bodoh."

Kaji selidik Merdeka Centre mendapati 92 peratus daripada pengundi menuntut untuk daftar pemilih dibersihkan dan hanya 44 peratus menyatakan keyakinan terhadap pilihan raya di Malaysia bebas dari unsur salah guna kuasa.

48 peratus respondan bersetuju daftar pemilih tidak tepat dan "dibelenggu" dengan pengundi meragukan seperti warga asing, mereka yang dipindah tanpa pengetahuan atau individu yang memiliki identiti lebih dari satu."

Perhimpunan Bersih 28 April lalu adalah yang ketiga dalam tempoh lima tahun menuntut pembaharuan sistem pilihan raya.

Selepas demonstrasi Julai tahun lalu, Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengumumkan pembentukan jawatankuasa khas untuk mengemukakan cadangan terhadap sistem pilihan raya dan diberi tempoh enam bulan untuk menyiapkan laporan lengkap.

Bagaimanapun, Bersih mengadakan protes yang menegaskan jawatankuasa itu gagal memenuhi tuntutan mereka termasuk membersihkan daftar pemilih, pengundi pos, media bebas, dan penggunaan dakwat kekal.

Namun Merdeka Centre berkata dalam kenyataannya, kaji selidik yang dijalankan antara 14 April hingga 26 April itu mendapati 39 peratus responden memahami pembaharuan tuntutan pilihan raya.

Bagaimanapun, 34 peratus percaya jawatankuasa dwipartisan itu ikhlas untuk memperbaiki sistem pilihan raya.

Perhimpunan yang menyaksikan ribuan rakyat Malaysia turun ke jalanan hujung bulan lalu dan menyaksikan pertempuran antara perusuh dan polis telah menyebabkan Barisan Nasional (BN) menuduh pembangkang cuba menjatuhkan kerajaan melalui demonstrasi. -TMI

DAP bidas Wan Ahmad anggap responden 'tak tahu'

Tindakan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) menolak hasil kajiselidik Merdeka Centre - bahawa 92 peratus rakyat Malaysia menyokong pembersihan daftar pemilih sebelum pilihan raya umum akan datang - hanya membuktikan tiada kebebasan dalam suruhanjaya tersebut, dakwa Setiausaha Publisiti DAP, Tony Pua.

Dalam satu kenyataan hari ini, beliau membidas Timbalan Pengerusi SPR, Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar kerana menolak hasil kajiselidik itu sebagai "remeh" serta menyifatkan respondennya "mungkin tidak tahu apa yang mereka katakan".

Pua mendakwa Wan Ahmad telah menghina responden dengan mengatakan bahawa adalah lebih baik jika Merdeka Centre meninjau pendapat pengundi yang baru mengundi, daripada bertanya kepada "Rempit' di tepi jalan, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh The Malaysian Insider.

Pua mendakwa, keangkuhan SPR itu membuktikan ia tidak berhasrat untuk melaksanakan pilihan raya yang bebas dan adil di Malaysia dan tidak mengendahkan pendapat umum walau bagaimana negatif sekalipun.

Pua, yang juga ahli Parlimen Petaling Jaya Utara.berkata komen tersebut menunjukkan Wan Ahmad adalah sebenarnya jahil, dan bukan rakyat Malaysia yang menjadi responden dalam kajiselidik tersebut.

ORIGIN OF BAMA is India and China

Posted: 28 May 2012 03:42 AM PDT


ORIGIN OF BAMA is India and China as they are the world's biggest ancient cradle of civilizations. High, snow peaked, rough and steep Himalaya mountain ranges block the direct interaction or travelling between the two of them except for the virtual highway through Myanmar/Burma. So there were a lot of travelers, migrants, victims of disasters and famine, war refugees and etc moving along this Burma Highway and some of them settled in Burma.

Sweet dreams, Pakatan

RK Anand and Teoh El Sen | May 28, 2012 

Why is Chua Soi Lek insulting the rakyat, particularly the Chinese community?
We, Chinese, have dignity. We're not animals like you, an Umno dog.
Go screw around and enjoy your wet dreams, you Umno dog!
Stop screwing the rakyat! We shall decide our own destiny!

"Siasat Segera Penganjur Drag Race" - PKR (updated)

Posted: 28 May 2012 06:01 AM PDT

Naib presiden PKR N Surendran berkata penganjur kepada acara perlumbaan yang berakhir dengan tragedi ketika Himpunan Jutaan Belia pada Sabtu lalu perlu disiasat atas kemalangan yang berlaku.

Katanya, insiden yang menyebabkan 17 orang cedera, dua daripada parah dan menerima rawatan rapi, perlu disiasat lanjut kerana mungkin melibatkan unsur kecuaian jenayah.

Katanya penganjur berkenaan, MUSC Motorsport, dalam kejadian itu hanya meletakkan pasu bunga untuk memisahkan penonton dan jalan raya yang menjadi litar perlumbaan.

Perkara itu jelas merupakan satu kesalahan dan penganjur tidak sepatutnya memulakan perlumbaan dengan langkah keselamatan seperti itu, katanya.

"Saya terkejut melihat pesakit yang mengalami kecederaan di bahagian usus dan bahagian dalaman yang teruk.

"Kita perlu mengambil tindakan serius... Mangsa perlu menerima keadilan terhadap kes ini kerana secara terang, hanya pasu bunga menjadi penghadang antara penonton dan litar.

"Ini memang salah...PKR bersedia untuk memberi bantuan guaman kepada sesiapa yang memerlukan,"
katanya kepada pemberita selepas melawat individu berkenaan di Hospital Putrajaya hari ini.

Seorang lagi naib presiden parti itu, Nurul Izzah Anwar berkata MUSC Motorsport perlu bertanggungjawab kerana insiden tersebut melibatkan nyawa dan keselamatan orang awam yang hadir untuk menonton perlumbaan jalan raya itu

"Kejadian ini amat serius kerana ramai orang yang cedera sehingga ada yang dimasukkan ke dalam ICU. Perkara ini menjadi pengajaran buat kita, dalam apa-apa acara yang dilakukan keselamatan orang awam perlu diutamakan.

Bercakap ketika ditemui selepas melawat dua mangsa berkenaan, Nurul Izzah berkata insiden tersebut merupakan satu peringatan yang baik kepada kerajaan untuk lebih menitikberatkan keselamatan orang ramai.

"Isu keselamatan kita tak boleh kompromi. Dan saya hadir hari ini untuk nyatakan sokongan dan sebagai penegasan terhadap insiden ini," katanya. -mk

Mangsa langgar kereta dakwa tak dengar pengumuman

PUTRAJAYA: "Limpa Fairuz hancur habis kena buang. Makcik hiba lihat anak kami terlantar kesakitan macam ini. Kami tak mampu nak tanggung segala perubatannya."

Demikian rintihan ibu salah seorang 17 mangsa yang cedera selepas dilanggar kereta ketika menonton perlumbaan drag yang diadakan sempena Himpunan Jutaan Belia 2012, pada Sabtu lalu.

Hamidah Zainal Abidin, 51, yang bekerja sebagai guru tadika di Rembau hanya mampu menitiskan air mata tatkala ditanya mengenai perkembangan anaknya itu.

Fairuz yang disahkan doktor cedera parah di bahagian limpa membuat pembedahan petang semalam untuk membuang organ tersebut yang hancur.

Menurut Hamidah, beliau dihubungi tunang Fairuz dan memaklumkan kejadian malang yang menimpa anaknya itu.

Fairuz yang dijadualkan akan berkahwin pada Februari tahun depan kini stabil dan mendapat rawatan rapi di wad ICU sejak malam kejadian tersebut.

Anak ketiga daripada empat orang adik-beradik ini bekerja sebagai seorang pemandu dan menurut Hamidah pihak penganjur perlu bertanggungjawab di atas kemalangan yang menimpa anaknya itu.

"Penganjur ada datang tapi tiada jaminan yang diberi. Malah mereka salahkan budak-budak ini kerana duduk dekat dengan kawasan lumba itu, seperti yang saya baca di akhbar.

"Saya dapat tahu anak saya cedera jam 1.00 pagi. Dimaklumkan kejadian berkenaan berlaku jam 11.30 malam. Fairuz datang dengan tujuh rakannya yang lain, malangnya enam jadi mangsa dan sekarang alami kecederaan.

"Penganjur perlu bertanggungjawab atas apa yang berlaku. Budak-budak ini kata tiada pengumuman oleh pihak berkenaan dan tahap keselamatan juga terabai," katanya kepada FMT.

Pada kejadian tengah malam Sabtu lalu, kereta yang mengambil bahagian dalam acara tersebut hilang kawalan dan terbabas menyebabkan ia melanggar sekumpulan penonton yang dikatakan berada di luar kawasan yang dibenarkan.

Laporan polis oleh mangsa

Sementara itu, seorang lagi mangsa Muhamad Aidil Azman, 19, berkongsi detik-detik cemas itu sehingga menyebabkan beliau tidak dapat berjalan ekoran lutut kanannya mengalami darah beku.

Menurut Muhamad Aidil, beliau yang tiba agak lewat hanya menonton perlumbaan di benteng pokok, malah mendakwa 22 orang turut mengalami kecederaan.

"Saya tak dengar ada sebarang pengumuman oleh penganjur dan saya duduk di benteng pokok. Saya sedar kereta itu datang dan tak sedar apa yang jadi," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, tiga laporan polis turut dibuat oleh mangsa termasuklah Muhamad Aidil.

Seorang lagi mangsa, Mohd Nor Faiz Sakariah, 24, membuat laporan polis berhubung kehilangan kamera yang didakwa diambil oleh pihak penganjur.

Laporan sama turut dibuat oleh sepupu beliau, Mohd Aidiel Aiezad Ashari, 24 mengenai kehilangan kamera tersebut.

Semua mangsa yang ditemui mendakwa pihak penganjur, Motorsport MUSC gagal membuat pengumuman untuk berundur daripada kawasan berkenaan, malah aspek keselamatan turut dipandang ringan.

Aspek keselamatan terabai

Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai, Nurul Izzah Anwar yang turut melawat mangsa awal pagi ini menggesa siasatan menyeluruh dibuat ke atas penganjur kerana gagal menitik beratkan aspek keselamatan.

Ujar beliau, aspek keselamatan tidak boleh dikompromi dan tidak mahu perkara seperti ini berulang pada masa akan datang.

Naib Presiden PKR, N Surendran pula berkata parti menawarkan khidmat guaman kepada para mangsa serta mendakwa penganjur bersalah dari sudut undang-undang kerana gagal mengambil berat aspek keselamatan umum.

Katanya, mangsa tidak patut dipersalahkan dalam hal ini

Ulasan GB

GB sudah ulas pagi tadi. Tepat sepertimana gesaan GB tadi:

Hujah yang digunakan oleh menteri belia itu adalah hujah Pak Pandir. Bukankah apabila anak Pak Pandir mati kerana kecuaiannya, beliau menyatakan pada Mak Andeh, "bukan anak kita sahaja yang mati, anak orang lain juga mati."

Sepatutnya pihak penganjur dan kementerian belia sendiri ditahan dan disiasat kerana kegagalan untuk menyediakan persekitaran yang kondusif untuk acara berkenaan sehingga menyebabkan kecederaan parah kepada orang awam.

Bread and Breakfast with Naturel Organic EVOO – Workshop with Chef Michael Elfwing

Posted: 28 May 2012 12:50 AM PDT

Last year I attended "KIDS EAT RIGHT WITH NATUREL BENTO" workshop at Bayan Indah with Rohani Jelani sponsored by Naturel. I learnt a lot new healthy cooking methods especially for kids. This year, I am very fortunate to be invited again by Naturel, a brand within Lam Soon that offers a wide range of cooking oil such as Naturel Blend, Sunflower, Canola, EVOO, Organic EVOO etc.

They invited me to a half-day workshop on "Bread and Breakfast with Naturel Organic" at Senses Hilton Kuala Lumpur with the introduction of Naturel Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. At home Naturel Blend is the cooking oil that I use because I believed in its goodness so as a regular customer of Naturel I wouldn't want to miss this.

The workshop consists of a hands-on bread-making and healthy cooking demonstration with Chef Michael Elfwing, an award winning Chef de Cuisine known for widely anticipated cooking classes using organic products, and an interactive sharing session with consultant dietitian Ms. Indra Balaratnam.

Chef Michael Elfwing explaining the goodness of organic extra virgin olive oil

Ms Indra showing us her slide presentation of nutrition

Talk about hands-on. Here are some pics of me, fellow bloggers and members of media learning how to make breads from Chef Michael. For the record, I was 7 months plus plus pregnant at this time. :)

Chef Elfwing and I


Me and other participants at the workshop. I am the only boyot and bulat one! :p

The result! Delicious!

From both the Chef and Indra, I have learnt that Organic EVOO is premium quality, produced from organically grown olives and pressed in methods to ensure that the nutritious properties of the EVOO such as polyphenols which is a great source of antioxcidants and Vitamin E are retained as much as possible. The EVOO also contains monounsaturates, something that all of us need in order to prevent heart diseases. Monounsaturated oils basically wont clog up the arteries! So it is super healthy.

My regular blog reader would probably have known that Azman and I are slowly turning into an organic freak right? We even plant our own veggies and herbs in our garden just to ensure that we are not consuming too much pesticides and chemical fertilizer residue in the commercially grown veggies from the market. So when I found out that Naturel has a new Organic EVOO in the market, of course I would use it. The price is affordable but then again, what is the value of the extra few Ringgit compared to youhealth right?

Back to the workshop, Chef Michael taught us bread-making and also demonstrated ways to prepare nutritious and easy breakfast side dishes to accompany the homemade breads using Naturel EVOO.

Poached egg with asparagus

Gigih nak belajar tau! See I duduk depan2! :p

Poached eggs, chicken patties, sauteed mushrooms! YUM!

After the workshop, we got to help ourselves with this scrumptious buffet spread.

I guess I would always remember one thing that Chef Michael said about the oil that we use in our cooking. He said, if it's for deep frying etc which requires the oil as the base for cooking, and in the end we remove the food from the oil and we don't actually eat the oil – so perhaps we can use the regular cooking oil. But for food that gets the oil incorporated in it and we will "eat" the oil at the end of the day  – food such as curry, soups, salad, breads, stir-fried food etc – why not use organic EVOO to ensure that you are getting the goodness and doing something to protect your heart.

Saya sangat setuju dengan statement ini Chef! :p

So come on everyone, let's live life healthily. Let's go organic!

Cheers and have a great week ahead!
