Office clothes should be tax deductible

Today i went to shop for work clothes. Seriously if i wasn't working, I would not be wearing this kind of clothes. If you look around the coffee shops, it is easy to spot someone who is working. I don't think anyone would choose to wear office clothes on a holiday.

A Grandma and A Minister

Posted: 09 Jul 2012 11:43 PM PDT

Love knows no boundaries, or so they say. A mother's love is very strong and history has shown how many have sacrificed a lot because of their families (men as well!). However, in our earnestness in desiring the best for our children or grandchildren, I strongly believe honesty, integrity and wisdom are vital.

Read the following news reports and see how two women loved differently. The first is a touching report of how great is a grandmother's love for her grandson (God bless both of them and may some kind Samaritan help them soon) and the second is one most of you would have read of a Minister and how she does not regret what she did for her son.

Report #1

According to The Star:

A PARTIALLY blind elderly woman was seen selling newspapers by the roadside with her seven-year-old grandson in Singapore, reported China Press.

The boy was seen doing his homework, having meals and sleeping on the ground while keeping his grandmother Lim Yuk Hua, 63, company.

Lim's husband died five years ago while her only daughter is married to a man who stays in Seremban.

She wanted her grandson Teh Chee Yong to live with her in the republic so that he could benefit from the good education there.

Many netizens expressed concern over their plight after pictures showing Lim and her grandson sitting by the roadside were uploaded to the Internet.

Lim, when approached by a reporter, claimed that she had been selling newspapers for more than 30 years.

She said her eyes had been partially blinded by the ashes of burnt prayer paraphernalia some 20 years ago.

She added that she had to support herself by selling newspapers as her daughter was barely making ends meet.

"I earn about S$400 (RM1,000) monthly.

"Although life is tough, I am happy because we have no problems securing two meals. Besides that, my grandson is very obedient," she said.

Report #2

Yen Yen: No regrets over Australian PR status
by Kow Gah Chie of Malaysiakini

MCA vice-president Ng Yen Yen has expressed pride in her decision to seek permanent residence (PR) in Australia some 17 years ago, for the sake of her son's education.

"I went to Australia for my son's education. I am very proud of it (as) my son is a very successful lawyer. I have no regrets," said Ng, who is also tourism minister.

She told a press conference that she had applied for PR status in the 1990s, but that she gave it up in 1995 when her son completed his studies.

Ng was referring to a remark that DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had targeted at MCA ministers during yesterday's debate 2.0, saying that not every Malaysian is able to get PR status in Australia.

Even through he had not named her, Ng said she was offering the clarification in order to "prevent being misunderstood".

She also said Lim had revealed his lack of vision and policies, and had avoided answering questions during the debate.

"This is typical of Guan Eng. He ran out of issues and instead dug up something that happened 20 years ago," she said.

Ng was also unhappy with Lim (left) for bringing up the RM1.8 million Cuti-Cuti Malaysia Facebook issue during the debate.

She urged social media users to correct Lim's "total ignorance", and said the money spent was for tourism campaigns and advertisements.

Raising the matter of the controversial of RM5 million 'Kancil carpark' near the Penang Hill, Ng said she holds Lim responsible for the demolition of the facility due to bad design and construction.

"Hey, (if) you can't even build a RM5 million carpark,what can you do ?" she said with obvious sarcasm.

Appeal on Pempena ruling

Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board chairperson Victor Wee, who was at the press conference, said Pembangunan Pelancongan Nasional Sdn Bhd (Pempena) will file an application to stay a High Court decision to wind up the company.

The Tourism Malaysia subsidiary was ordered to wind up its operations last month after failing to repay RM12.4 million to Kah Bintang Auto Sdn Bhd for the purchase of 120 units of Hyundai Sonata for its taxi service.

The SunDaily reported that the petition was not defended.

Wee said Pempena will discuss this with the official receiver to seek the best solution for all parties.

*Dato' Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen is a Malaysian politician and the current Minister of Tourism in the Malaysian Cabinet. She is the current Vice-President of Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA).

Where Have All The Flowers Gone? *Must Read*

Posted: 10 Jul 2012 07:39 AM PDT

As some of you might know, I lecture part-time at a local college in Penang in the Pre-University Programme. My General Paper class for the A-level course is usually a small cohort because only diligent and strong-hearted students who are willing to think and work take my class. So far, my students have been very co-operative and have responded well to my input. Last Tuesday, I gave a lecture on various aspects of music to comply with the Paper 3 component of the Cambridge International AS 8004 General Paper syllabus. We had a grand time discussing music genres, the functions and forms of music and the background of certain songs including "Yesterday" and other protest songs. I daresay that was my best lecture for 2011-2012!

Every week,the kids have to turn in an assignment. And they have to think, analyze, discuss, criticize and even object to what I pose to them because in that way, they can develop critical thinking skills and maturity of thought. To my delight, the assignment on a song review that they turned in was particularly pleasing, especially the one written by Justin Loo Su Min. Believe me - it is tough to find good students who can bear with eccentric me as I am very particular about quality control in the classroom and I am quite blessed in that despite having seven students for this cohort, they are great kids and the group dynamics are pretty awesome. Even though it was a rocky start to separate the wheat from the chaff, the seven that chose to take my class from the twenty are very nice students and I pray every single one of them will score 'A' in the coming exam to repeat what my previous cohort achieved. Justin, an eighteen year old student who hails from Prai, is a lively boy who enjoys (at least I think he does) my jokes and quips in class. Thankfully, he is quite resilient to my *coughs* comments or incessant nagging for him and others to meet deadlines (I chase them via emails, smses, whatsapps etc.LOL). All in all, I am glad to have this group and love picking their brains! I almost gave up on them at one point because it was so difficult to get them to write. I threatened to resign and that was when the turnaround happened and it has been a beautiful and fulfilling journey since (although two still owe me essays!).

Note that in this assignment, they have to give an analytical critique of the song including salient observations about the lyrics, form, musical structure. They also have to construct a topic sentence in each paragraph that must be discussed with supporting evidence sans grammatical errors and fallacies. Each sentence must be linked to the other and each paragraph must have coherence, clarity, concreteness of ideas, completeness of arguments and correctness of facts/grammar. After an effective introduction, each paragraph must lead to the other and lead to a cogent conclusion. All topic sentences are highlighted in bold in all assignments that they submit, including this one.  Enjoy this essay by Justin (with minimal editing by yours truly) and do leave a comment to share your views.

Justin: Well done!! I am very proud of you and pleased with your effort and progress! More essays please :-). I have yet to check my inbox for today's homework :-) and will do so right after I post this! Cheers!

Where Have All The Flowers Gone? 
by Justin Loo Su Min

At the height of the Cold War, the American government pursued a zealous programme against alleged threats to national security. Those dark days, filled with the constant threat of nuclear confrontation and fear of persecution, led many to express their frustrations in music and songs. One such activist is Peter Seeger who wrote many anti-establishment songs such as "Beans In My Ears", a subtle critique of President Lyndon Johnson's oblivion to anti-war sentiments. He is particularly famous for "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?"

"Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" is a melancholic song lamenting the loss of lives in wars. It describes girls picking flowers and marrying men who have enlisted as soldiers and eventually die and are buried in graveyards covered with flowers once more. The singing is accompanied by basic guitar chords strummed in simple patterns and the lyrics may be sung in a spoken fashion.

Each stanza begins with a nostalgic rhetorical question "Where have all the flowers gone?/ Long time passing..." followed by the revealing response "Where have all the young girls gone? Taken husbands, every one". The phrase When will they ever learn? is repeated at the end of every stanza, emphasizing the cyclic nature of death.

The song also echoes the Latin "ubi sunt" poetic tradition, which literally translates to "Where are... {they}?" In Seeger's composition, "ubi sunt" meditates on death and loss, fitting the tensed backdrop of the global theatre of the period. The American government prosecuted an increasingly fruitless proxy war in Vietnam against the Soviet-backed North Vietnamese Alliance. Internally vicious witch hunts were launched against anything deemed communist-related, subversive or even socialist. For a nation still recovering from the  Second World War, the Vietnam War claimed another generation of young men and boys. The verse "Where have all the soldiers gone?/ Gone to graveyards every one?" mirrored the spectre of death that hung over the country at that time.

Taking folk tradition to heart, the song underlines remembrance of the departed and their sacrifices. The last stanza includes "Where have all the graveyards gone?/ Gone to flowers everyone" which insinuates how subsequent generations to come may suffer from ignorance of the folly of war. The flowers could be symbolic of the apathy in society or the uncaring hand of the government, both of which fuel war. Seeger reaches out to his society for to understand the issue of war and beseeches them to remember the cost of such international feuds. 

His simple lyrics evoke vivid and emotional images of loss through uncomplicated lyrics. By ignoring nationality and political affiliation, the song focuses on war and its consequences, tugging at our conscience.

"Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" as enduring as ninety year-old Seeger himself, is now synonymous with anti-war movements and civil activism. It has been covered by artistes including Bobby Darin, Harry Belafonte and Dolly Parton. Academy Award nominated actress Marlene Dietrich sang it 
at a 1962 UNICEF concert in Germany. She was also the first to break the anti-German taboo in Israel with the same song. 

Peter Seeger has performed the song many times even into his twilight years. Most significantly, he replaced 'they" in "When will they ever learn?" with "When will WE ever learn?" highlighting society's responsibility in passing on the hard lessons learnt in war. His song has been translated into over twenty languages, speaking to people across racial lines and borders. Where have all the flowers gone? remains etched in history as one of the most gentle, yet hard-hitting anti-war songs.

The song has earned its place among the greatest protest songs of all time. Peter Seeger is from the generation that savoured the musical works of John Lennon and Bob Dylan.The disquieting contemplation of war and death could help a modern world desensitized to violence and suffering. 

In the end, such music will outlive their creators to leave a lasting mark upon the collective consciousness of humanity. If future generations may ask a question to make sense of war, sacrifice, history, losses and death, let it be "Where have all the flowers gone?"


I have always challenged all my students to write better than me and I believe Justin has done it in this assignment. I was really moved deeply when I marked his essay. To be honest, he had a tough time in January when he first joined my class and had to rewrite his second essay two or three times. I am sincerely glad he did not run away like the others but stayed on in my class, responded positively to my criticisms and comments and most of all, gave his best. Keep it up, young man.

Do leave a comment to encourage Justin. Thanks!!!

AJK Masjid Lapor Polis Campurtangan UMNO Tolak Imam Yang Dituduh Ahli PAS

Posted: 10 Jul 2012 08:32 AM PDT

Kemelut Imam Masjid Lenggeng semakin parah

LENGGENG: Kemelut perlantikan Imam Masjid Lenggeng sejak awal tahun ini semakin parah apabila 10 daripada 11 Ahli Jawatankuasa (AJK) masjid tersebut membuat laporan polis di Balai Polis Lenggeng pagi ini.

Dalam laporan polis tersebut Mohd Fahmy Mohd Tamin, 70, yang mewakili AJK masjid; lima Datuk-Datuk Adat Lenggeng (pemimpin setempat mengikut hirarki sistem Adat Perpatih Negeri Sembilan) dan 220 ahli kariah masjid; mendakwa salah laku tiga individu di dalam Jawatankuasa masjid tersebut menyebabkan urus tadbir Masjid Lenggeng menjadi celaru dan kucar kacir sejak awal tahun ini.

"Nazir Masjid, Mad Nor Ibrahim; Setiausaha Masjid, Osman Rasul dan AJK Masjid yang juga Ketua Umno cawangan Lenggeng, Zulkifli Rashid tidak akur dengan keputusan majoriti AJK masjid menghantar dua nama kepada Jabatan Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (Jains).

"Kami menghantar nama Said Abdul Ghani sebagai calon Imam 1 dan Ustaz Azman Baharom sebagai calon Imam 2. Said mempunyai pengalaman sebagai Bilal selama 16 tahun dan sebagai Imam selama empat tahun.

"Walaubagaimanapun Mad Nor, Osman dan Zulkifli membelakangkan keputusan AJK Masjid dan menghantar dua nama lain iaitu Nordin Yusof dan Ali Hamzah. Nordin menolak tawaran tersebut sementara Ali pula diisytiharkan sebagai Pemangku Imam 1 oleh Mad Nor, Osman dan Zulkifli.

"Tetapi apa yang pelik sehingga hari ini tiada surat hitam putih daripada Jains yang mengesahkan pelantikan Ali sebagai Pemangku Imam 1.

Kes masih disiasat

"Saya sudah berjumpa pegawai yang berkenaan di Jains dan jawapan yang mereka berikan bahawa kes ini masih disiasat dan meminta saya bersabar," kata Mohd Fahmy.

Apabila ditanya FMT mengapa 10 AJK Masjid termasuk Mohd Fahmy, Datuk-Datuk Undang Lenggeng dan 220 ahli kariah masjid tidak mahu menerima Ali sebagai Imam; Fahmy menjelaskan bahawa bacaan sembahyang dan tajwid oleh Ali tidak sempurna dan sering berlaku kesilapan di dalam bacaan beliau.

Mohd Fahmy juga mendakwa ada tangan ghaib dan campurtangan politik di dalam kemelut ini.

"Said dituduh sebagai orang PAS. Saya dan beberapa AJK masjid merupakan ahli Umno. Bagi kami tidak penting apa fahaman politik Imam.

"Ahli kariah tidak peduli apa fahaman politik Imam. Yang kami peduli ialah ilmu Imam itu mestilah mencukupi dan mampu mengendalikan bacaan sembahyang dan tajwid dengan sempurna.

"Justeru itu kami mendesak pihak Jains segera mengistiharkan keputusan panel temuduga pegawai masjid (Imam) yang diadakan pada 28 Mac 2012. Kami mendapat maklumat bahawa calon yang kami cadangkan iaitu Said dan Azman berjaya terpilih sebagai Imam", jelas Mohd Fahmy. -FMT

The End.

Masih Ada Harga Lagikah Dubur Saiful Kepada UMNO?

Kes liwat Anwar: AG fail notis rayuan

KUALA LUMPUR - Pejabat Peguam Negara telah memfailkan notis rayuan di Pejabat Pendaftar Mahkamah Rayuan terhadap pembebasan dan pelepasan Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim daripada tuduhan meliwat bekas pembantunya Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Seorang timbalan pendakwa raya kanan yang dihubungi Bernama hari ini mengesahkan bahawa rayuan itu difailkan tengah hari semalam.

Bagaimanapun, difahamkan bahawa mahkamah berkenaan tidak menetapkan tarikh untuk mendengar rayuan itu.

Isnin lepas, Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur menyerahkan rekod rayuan, termasuk penghakiman bertulis setebal 80 muka surat untuk memudahkan pihak pendakwaaan memfailkan rayuan.

Dalam penghakiman bertulis beliau, hakim perbicaraan Hakim Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah memutuskan bahawa mahkamah itu tidak boleh 100 peratus pasti tentang integriti sampel DNA yang diambil daripada pengadu (Mohd Saiful Bukhari).

Katanya sampel berkenaan boleh diusik sebelum sampai kepada Jabatan Kimia untuk dibuat analisis. Oleh yang demikian, kata Mohamad Zabidin, adalah tidak selamat bagi mahkamah bergantung pada keputusan ujian DNA yang dilakukan oleh ahli kimia Dr Seah Lee Hong terhadap sampel berkenaan.

Pada 20 Jan, Pejabat Peguam Negara memfailkan notis rayuan terhadap pembebasan Anwar daripada tuduhan meliwat.

Notis berkenaan, yang ditandatangani Peguam Cara Negara Datuk Idrus Harun, difailkan di Pejabat Pendaftar Mahkamah Tinggi Jenayah Kuala Lumpur.

Pada 9 Jan, Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah melepaskan dan membebaskan Anwar daripada tuduhan meliwat Mohd Saiful Bukhari, 26, di sebuah unit di Kondominium Desa Damansara, Bukit Damansara di sini antara 3.10 petang dan 4.30 petang pada 26 Jun, 2008.

Anwar, 65, dituduh mengikut Seksyen 377B Kanun Keseksaan yang membawa hukuman hingga 20 tahun penjara dan sebat jika disabitkan kesalahan.- Bernama

Kes Fitnah II: Rayuan Peguam Negara bermotif politik – Peguam

KUALA LUMPUR 10 Julai: Rayuan Peguam Negara terhadap keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur yang membebaskan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim daripada tuduhan Fitnah II adalah bermotif politik.

Ahli Biro Politik KEADILAN, Sivarasa Rasiah berkata, ia dibuktikan apabila penghakiman bertulis kes itu hanya dikeluarkan awal bulan ini walaupun keputusan dibuat pada 9 Januari lalu.

Katanya, kelewatan itu juga jelas menunjukkan badan kehakiman telah diperalat oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

"Ini satu lagi taktik politik terdesak pentadbiran Najib untuk mengekang pergerakan Anwar menjelang pilihan raya umum akan datang dengan harapan Pakatan Rakyat tidak menang," katanya kepada Keadilan Daily.

Sivarasa yang juga peguam berkata, Najib patut berdebat dengan Anwar bagi membuktikan keberanian beliau, bukannya bermain politik kotor seperti ini.

"Najib sepatutnya berdebat dengan Anwar berhubung ekonomi negara kerana ia bentuk politik baru yang sihat dan adil bukannya menekan institusi kehakiman untuk membunuh kerjaya politik beliau," kata Ahli Parlimen Subang itu lagi.

Ketua Bahagian Perbicaraan dan Rayuan, Kamaluddin Md Said dilapor mengesahkan petisyen rayuan difail semalam, namun enggan mendedahkan alasan rayuan itu.

"Kami akan berhati-hati dengan tindakan pentadbiran Najib ini kerana selain ia bermotif politik, ia juga bertujuan untuk memerangkap Anwar dan buat masa ini, kita menanti apa tindakan susulan Jabatan Peguam Negara.
"Selepas itu, barulah kita akan membuat kenyataan mengenainya," kata Sivarasa lagi.

Dalam penghakiman bertulis setebal 80 muka surat pada 2 Julai lalu, Hakim Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah
memutuskan mahkamah tidak boleh 100 peratus pasti tentang integriti sampel DNA yang diambil daripada pengadu, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Ini kerana katanya, sampel itu boleh diusik sebelum sampai kepada Jabatan Kimia untuk dibuat analisis dan oleh itu beliau membebas dan melepaskan Anwar dari tuduhan Fitnah kali kedua itu pada 9 Januari lalu.

Sebelum ini, Fitnah 1 bermula sejak 1998 menyaksikan pentadbiran Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad memenjarakan Anwar sebelum Ketua Pembangkang itu dibebaskan dari semua tuduhan pada 2004.

Ulasan GB

Juak-juak UMNO amat mengharapkan Anwar dipenjarakan. Tetapi amat jelas dari keputusan mahkamah bahawa "mahkamah tidak boleh 100 peratus pasti tentang integriti sampel DNA yang diambil daripada pengadu (Mohd Saiful Bukhari)".

GB telah ulas sebelum ini. Petikan:

Mengimbau kembali perbicaraan, Pakar forensik dan patalogis Australia, Dr David Wells menyifatkan integriti spesimen yang diambil daripada pengadu Saiful Bukhari Azlan dalam kes fitnah liwat II ke atas Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim amat kritikal.

Kita juga telah didedahkan maklumat bahawa seorang pegawai polis, Pegawai penyiasat (IO) DSP Jude Blacious Periera mengakui bahawa beliau memotong bahagian luar plastik spesimen DNA untuk tujuan penandaan.

Malah Jude turut memberitahu bahawa beliau menyimpan spesimen tersebut di dalam almari tidak berhawa dingin lebih daripada 40 jam.

Pasukan peguambela pada hari ini berjaya menimbulkan kesangsian tentang cara pengendalian sampel DNA yang diambil oleh doktor dari Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) ke atas Saiful.

Katanya Jude sendiri telah melanggar prosedur analisis kimia dengan memotong bekas plastik yang mengandungi sampel DNA pengadu.

Dalam pada itu Sankara yang ditemui di perkarangan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur berkata, "Pakar mengatakan IO telah potong beg. Ini memberi peluang kepada kontaminasi dan perkara ini memang berlaku. Kononnya untuk buat penandaan baru dan pakar cakap prosedur ini tidak betul. Itu menujukkan kejayaan pihak pembela hari ini".

Sekarang apabila bahan bukti utama telah tercemar dan ditolak, apa lagi yang hendak dirayukan? Apa evidences lain yang hendak dikemukakan? Dubur Saifulkah? Itupun disyaki telah dicemari.

Tiada ruang untuk pendakwa raya hendak persoalkan dan menekan mahkamah supaya bahan bukti itu diterima semula kecuali ada permainan lain direncanakan untuk menafikan keputusan hakim tersebut.

Famous Myanmar Muslims who had even improved the Myanmar history are now sadly called Kalars

KALAR GYI at the back was almost forgotten. Now DASSK is at the TOP, naturally MUST kick out the scaffolding (Nyan in Burmese) after finishing the pagoda.

That Kalar Gyi went to fetch DASSK with the car driven by another Kalar, MMNyein. Now only I found out (proudly) that they are my extended cousins or far relatives. Even if think that it is so far to call an extended relative or family, at least we all are brothers-in-Islam but nowadays called with a derogatory name Kalar.

Even his cousin, famous father of Myanmar western and tradition boxing (Let Whei'), Kyar Ba Nyein's very important role in Myanmar sports history was partly deleted because he was a Myanmar Muslim.

His son U Win Nyein wrote in my blog on December 17, 2009 …
Dear Dr. Ko Ko Gyi,
I accidentally read about my father written in your blog. May I correct a mistake.

My maternal grandmother Daw Aye Khin was the eldest sister of Daw Htwe, your grandpa's wife. So my father was not the brother in law of U Pyaw. He was his niece's (my mom Daw Kyi Kyi) husband. So he was U Pyaw's nephew.

"It was Daw Suu's first appearance in public and we thought she wouldn't be able to speak Burmese fluently because she had spent years in England," said Moe Thu, a well-known writer and former NLD executive committee member. Suu Kyi had surprised them all by her fluency in the Burmese language, he recalled.

Dokumen 'sahkan' PM campurtangan, dakwa PKR

PKR telah mendedahkan satu dokumen (lihat lampiran di bawah) yang didakwanya membuktikan bahawa jawatankuasa peringkat tinggi yang dipengerusikan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak telah menganugerahkan projek sambungan LRT Ampang bernilai RM1.18 bilion kepada konsortium yang diketuai oleh George Kent Bhd.

Dokumen itu adalah minit mesyuarat kelima Jawatankuasa Perolehan Menteri Kewangan (JPMK) pada 21 Jun, yang mempengerusikan Najib kerana beliau juga merupakan menteri kewangan.

Dalam sidang akhbar hari ini, Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli berkata anugerah itu adalah pelik kerana George Kent dianggap sebagai "pembida lebih tinggi tidak berpengalaman" dalam tender tersebut.

Menurutnya, kepakaran yang George Kent ada ialah mengilang meter air dan syarikat itu sebelum ini ditolak kerana ia tidak memenuhi keperluan minimum teknikal bagi kerja tersebut.

Najib, yang sebelum ini diminta menjelaskan dakwaan tersebut, menyangkalnya dengan berkata semuanya mengikut aturan. -mk

Jawatankuasa Perolehan Menteri Kewangan Telah Menganugerahkan Tender Kepada George Kent

Pada 21 Jun 2012, Jawatankuasa Perolehan Menteri Kewangan (JPMK) telah mengadakan mesyuarat kelima bagi tahun 2012 (Bil 5/2012). JPMK adalah jawatankuasa tertinggi yang menentukan anugerah tender projek-projek besar kerajaan. Keanggotaannya adalah seperti berikut:

1. Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan, Dato' Ser Najib Tun Razak selaku pengerusi,

2. Menteri Kewangan II, Dato' Seri Husni Hanadzlah,

3. Ketua Setiausaha Perbendaharaan, Tan Sri Dr Wan Abd Aziz Wan Abdullah, dan

4. Timbalan Ketua Setiausaha Perbendaharaan, Datuk Nozirah Bahari

Mesyuarat tersebut telah memutuskan untuk melantik George Kent sebagai kontraktor bagi kerja-kerja tambahan LRT Laluan Ampang pada harga RM1,180,037,624.

Keputusan ini kemudiannya dimaklumkan kepada Dato' Shahril Mokhtar, Pengarah Urusan Kumpulan Prasarana bagi tindakan beliau yang selanjutnya dalam satu surat bertarikh 25 Jun 2012 yang disertakan bersama.

Pendedahan keputusan JPMK ini mengesahkan dakwaan KEADILAN sebelum ini bahawa Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak telah campur tangan di dalam proses penilaian dan penganugerahan tender kerja-kerja tambahan LRT Laluan Ampang.

Lebih mengejutkan, keputusan JPMK yang dipengerusikan oleh Perdana Menteri itu membatalkan keputusan yang dibuat oleh jawatankuasa yang sama pada 25 Januari 2012 yang melantik kontraktor lain yang lebih layak.

Saya mendesak Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak berterus terang dengan menjawab 3 soalan berikut, rentetan kenyataan tunggal beliau setakat ini kononnya proses anugerah tender ini mengikut prosedur yang betul:

1. Prosedur bahagian mana di dalam Pekeliling Perbendaharaan yang membenarkan sebuah syarikat yang telah jelas gagal di dalam penilaian teknikal diberikan tender bertentangan dengan keputusan jawatankuasa teknikal?

2. Prosedur bahagian mana di dalam Pekeliling Perbendaharaan yang membenarkan Perdana Menteri menganugerahkan projek pada harga yang lebih tinggi
(harga George Kent adalah RM1.18 bilion berbanding harga Balfour Beatty pada RM1.01 bilion, iaitu lebih mahal sebanyak RM167 juta) kepada pembida yang gagal penilaian teknikal dan kewangan? dan

3. Prosedur bahagian mana di dalam Pekeliling Perbendaharaan yang membenarkan Perdana Menteri campur tangan sedemikian rupa di dalam anugerah tender besar seperti ini?

Segala keputusan anugerah tender setakat ini membayangkan berlaku pergolakan dan menimbulkan lebih banyak persoalan.

Apakah pertimbangan sebenar Dato' Seri Najib yang sanggup membahayakan nyawa ratusan ribu orang ramai dengan melantik sebuah syarikat milik rakan karibnya yang hanya berpengalaman mengilang meter air untuk membina sistem LRT negara?

Kenapa harga yang dianugerahkan kepada syarikat milik rakan karib beliau ini lebih mahal sebanyak RM167 juta sedangkan ada pembida yang dinilai layak kepakarannya pada harga yang lebih rendah?

Apakah jumlah RM167 juta ini juga boleh dikaitkan dengan apa-apa pembayaran berbentuk komisen kepada mana-mana ahli politik Umno/BN, seperti mana wujudnya pembayaran komisen kepada sebuah syarikat yang dikaitkan dengan Dato' Seri Najib semasa pembelian kapal selam Scorpene dahulu?

Soalan-soalan ini akan terus berlegar dan akan memburukkan lagi imej Dato' Seri Najib selagi ia tidak dijawab dengan jitu dan ikhlas oleh beliau.

Pun begitu, saya percaya Dato' Seri Najib akan terus membisu kerana itulah tindakan beliau setakat ini bila berdepan dengan skandal di dalam pentadbiran beliau.

Oleh yang demikian, saya percaya tanggungjawab yang sama perlu digalaskan di bahu Dato' Shahril Mokhtar sebagai Pengarah Urusan Kumpulan Prasarana untuk mengesahkan bahawa George Kent telah dilantik sebagai kontrak bagi kerja-kerja pembinaan tambahan LRT Laluan Ampang, seperti mana yang diarahkan oleh Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Remaja Keluar Ikut Tingkap Untuk Dirogol "Awie"

Posted: 10 Jul 2012 02:06 AM PDT

Pelajar dakwa dirogol 'Awie'

BESUT - Rahsia seorang pelajar perempuan tingkatan tiga sebuah sekolah menengah di sini yang sering keluar melalui tingkap bilik tidurnya untuk bertemu teman lelaki pada awal pagi pecah tembelang apabila perbuatan itu disedari ibunya. Gambar fail

Rahsia itu terbongkar pada jam 2.30 pagi, Sabtu lalu oleh ibu remaja itu apabila dia terjaga daripada tidur kemudian selepas memeriksa bilik tidur anaknya namun mendapati anaknya tidak ada di dalam bilik manakala pintu tingkap terbuka.

Lebih malang, gara-gara tindakan mencuri keluar pada awal pagi menyebabkan pelajar itu mendakwa dirogol teman lelakinya yang dikenali dengan panggilan Awie yang tinggal bersebelahan rumahnya di sebuah kampung dekat Kuala Besut.

Timbalan Ketua Polis Daerah, Deputi Superintendan Noorzainy Mohd Noor mengesahkan menerima laporan tersebut dan memberitahu, sebaik menyedari anaknya tidak ada di dalam bilik, ibu mangsa pergi ke rumah jirannya itu dan mendapati mangsa berada di ruang tamu rumah bersama Awie. Menurutnya, ibu mangsa terus membawa anaknya pulang.

"Ibu mangsa turut mengesyaki Awie melakukan hubungan seks dengan anaknya kerana anaknya mengaku beberapa kali pergi ke rumah suspek ketika ibu dan ahli keluarganya sedang tidur," katanya

Noorzainy berkata, polis sudah mengenal pasti suspek berumur 35 tahun yang sudah berkahwin itu dan usaha memburunya sedang giat dilakukan.

Kes ini disiasat di bawah Seksyen 376 Kanun Keseksaan kerana merogol. -SH

Ulasan GB

Kes ini diklassifikasikan sebagai jenayah rogol sebab pelajar itu berusia bawah 16 tahun.

Undang-undang di dalam negara kita menetapkan semua yang dibawah 16 tahun dianggap kes rogol sekalipun suka sama suka kerana menjadi tanggungjawab lelaki untuk menjaga dan menasihati mereka yang dikategorikan di bawah umur, bukan mengambil kesempatan dari kerelaan mereka.

Di dalam kes di atas berlaku kecuaian ibubapa menjaga anak perempuannya sehingga beliau boleh keluar melalui tingkap untuk ke rumah jirannya lantas dirogol.

Bermain Dengan Angka, Najib DIkencingkan Dengan Akhbar Media Perdana

Posted: 09 Jul 2012 11:43 PM PDT

Katanya 50 ribu orang sambut PM, kasihan…

Katanya, Ahad lalu PM turun ke Bangi Selangor atas pentas 'Janji Ditepati' dengan sambutan 50,000 penduduk negeri Selangor. Hebat benar sambutan ini, kita tak dapat membayangkan dengan begitu ramai sokongan rakyat kepada PM kita, tapi Najib masih tidak sanggup membubarkan Parlimen untuk mengadakan pilihan raya umum ke-13.

Gambar: Kanak-kanak (dalam bulatan) diperalatkan untuk sambut Najib di Bangi

Harus diingat, pilihan raya yang bakal diadakan kelak merupakan medan pertama Najib diuji dengan sebenar-benarnya. Kita tidak pernah lupa bahawa selama ini Najib naik kerana 'bertenggek' atas kapasiti giliran dan nasib.

Mudahnya dia naik

Masa mula-mula beliau terlibat dalam politik, adalah kerana menggantikan kerusi wakil rakyat milik ayahandanya yang meninggal dunia ketika menjawat jawatan Perdana Menteri. Ketika itu Najib dipilih oleh rakyat atas budi dan nama baik serta simpati kepada perjuangan ayahandanya.

Kemudian, rentetan sejarah jawatan beliau dalam parti dan kerajaan juga seakan rezeki terpijak. Beliau jadi Menteri Besar Pahang yang termuda, semua tahu ketika itu tiada wakil UMNO yang benar-benar layak dan disukai oleh istana Pahang, maka Najib mendapat laba dari situasi itu.

Kemudian dia naik jadi Ketua Pemuda UMNO kerana Anwar naik pangkat ke Naib Presiden, seterusnya beliau jadi Naib Presiden bila Pak Lah naik jadi Timbalan setelah Anwar ditendang keluar dari UMNO dan Kabinet. Selepas itu, Najib naik ke takhta no.1 kerana Pak Lah ditendang keluar oleh UMNO sendiri.

Begitulah nasib yang sentiasa menyebelahi Najib Tun Razak. Beliau belum pernah diuji dilapangan sebenar, dan pilihanraya akan datang pastinya akan menjadi medan ujian sebenar sama ada Najib betul-betul dikehendaki oleh rakyat Malaysia atau tidak.

Hebat-hebat Najib, pakai Utusan juga

Dalam rentetan ini, kini Najib sibuk ke hulu ke hilir berkempen baik atas kapasiti kerajaan mahu pun parti. Kita sebagai rakyat biasa, sudah tak boleh nak beza yang mana kempen guna duit parti yang mana guna duit cukai rakyat. Najib dan UMNO, main sapu sahaja.

Dalam banyak adegan kempennya, lidah rasmi UMNO, Utusan Malaysia sering sahaja 'menggubah' sokongan orang ramai kepada Najib, seolah-olah Najib sudah dipilih oleh rakyat secara automatik dalam siri-siri kempen menggunakan wang cukai rakyat ini.

Yang terbaru, tanpa sebarang gambar yang menunjukkan orang yang menyambut Najib, tiba-tiba Utusan yang terkenal sebagai akhbar fitnah telah mendakwa sejumlah 50,000 orang telah menyambut Najib. Pelik, tapi inilah hakikatnya.

Dulu sewaktu Bersih 3.0, Utusan dakwa hanya 30 ribu orang sedangkan orang yang hadir, wartawan antarabangsa yang berada di ibu kota masa itu, gambar-gambar dimuat naik ke internet menunjukkan sebaliknya, malah jauh besar dari dakwaan Utusan itu.

Najib cetus kesesakan lalu lintas dengan bas-bas sewa

Teman terpanggil nak mengutuk di sini kerana dah rimas dengan dakwaan 50,000 di sana, 70,000 di sini. Kebetulan pula, teman terperangkap dalam kesesakan lalulintas sewaktu acara Najib itu berlangsung. Ya memang ramai orang yang datang, kebanyakan budak-budak sekolah.

Namun, dalam banyak-banyak itu, rasanya bas-bas sekolah lebih banyak dari pengunjung. Plat bas-bas ini ada yang bermula dengan P, D, C, A, N dan J. Pastinya bas-bas ini disewa khas dari negeri tersebut.

Selain dari bas persiaran dan bas sekolah, banyak juga bas-bas dari kolej swasta. Kasihan budak-budak kolej dipaksa datang menyambut PM. Jumlahnya sekitar 100 buah. Semua bas-bas ini diletakkan di luar kawasan tapak pesta.

Projek bawa orang datang guna bas charter ke program UMNO atau kerajaan BN pastinya projek yang cukup lumayan. Saiz tapak majlis sekitar 700 meter persegi. Kalau dikira dengan jari, pasti muatnya tidak lebih dari 5,000 orang. Itu pun kalau kawasan parking tak penuh.

Kalau nak membohong pun, agak-agak la. Tapi itu Utusan kan…

Bagi Najib yang hadir sebagai VIP, pastinya tidak akan melihat gambaran sebenar di luar pentas acara. Yang dilihat adalah mereka yang telah duduk bersimpuh di hadapannya. Pasti juak-juaknya akan berbisik, " Dato' Seri, inilah penyokong kita, kita mesti sukses punya".

Tanpa sedar bahawa semua yang hadir, majoritinya (mungkin 5,000 agaknya) bukanlah penduduk Selangor. Kasihan Najib, kena main dengan pengelola majlis.

Nampaknya, perjalan politik Najib kali ini pastinya sukar. Tiada lagi tiket untuk bertenggek selesa demi menjamin kekuasaan seperti dahulu. Sudahlah dia disindir dua kali oleh Dato' Chua Soi Lek – kerana ketua MCA sanggup berdebat dengan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng – pastinya Najib semakin tertekan untuk mengelak dari berdebat dengan calon Perdana Menteri Pakatan Rakyat Anwar Ibrahim.

Kini Najib harus terima realiti, dia kena tunjuk kekuatan yang sebenar dengan menerima jemputan debat Perdana dengan Anwar Ibrahim. Tak perlulah bergantung dengan Utusan yang sudah berkali-kali kalah dalam saman fitnah. Najib kena disedarkan bahawa rakyat belum lagi memilih Perdana Menteri sejak PRU 2008. Tunggulah sehingga PRU13 nanti. -Roketkini

Ulasan GB

GB sudah pun mengulas hal ini. Maka benarlah pemerhatian GB sebelum ini dimana GB katakan:

Bagi mereka yang mengikut perkembangan berita-berita yang dikeluarkan oleh BERNAMA (dan akkhbar perdana yang lain) mengenai kehadiran orangramai terhadap acara-acara yang disertai Pakatan Rakyat biasanya akan disusutkan dengan membahagikan angka itu dengan 10, iaitu jika yang hadir 200,000 maka dikhabarkan hanya 20,000 dan jika yang hadir di dalam mana-mana program anjuran PR seperti ceramah itu mencecah 50,000 maka ditulisnya 5,000. Jika 3000 maka ditulisnya hanya 300 orang.

Contoh semasa perhimpunan BERSIH 1.0 dahulu, BERNAMA tanpa segan silu menyatakan kehadirannya cuma 4,000 orang, di BERSIH 3.0 pula Rais Yatim menyatakan sekitar 22,000 orang! Angka sebenar telah dibahagikan dengan 10.

Tetapi mana-mana program anjuran UMNO BN, maka angka sebenar akan didarabkan dengan 10. Misalnya jika kehadiran itu 8,000 ditulisnya 80,000. Di Gua Musang baru-baru ini, program Najib yang disertai 3,000 orang ditulisnya 30,000 dan apa juga program NGO yang sehaluan dengan UMNO BN seperti JATI juga demikian, 800 akan ditulisnya 8,000. Jika ada NGO sedemikian buat demo yang dihadiri 20 orang maka akan ditulisnya 200 orang.

Hukum kebenaran dan keadilan tidak boleh ditipu. Sungguh bebal BERNAMA ini. Mengubah angka semata-mata nak "gah"kan UMNO BN dan merendahkan PR.

Enjoy Fresh Vegetables by Planting Your Own

Posted: 09 Jul 2012 10:15 PM PDT

This is the third time I worked on this piece of vacant land in front of my house to prevent it from becoming an eyesore and a breeding place for all sort of pests.  By turning it into a vegetable plot it will provide me with fresh home grown vegetables as well as provide me with a good exercise to sweat it out and remove those toxins from my blood system.
The first time I started working on this idle patch of land in front of my house was in March 2009. I had to stop barely after 3 months later because the land owner brought a team of surveyors to demarcate the boundaries of his 3 house lots.
Seeing that nothing was being done by the landowner after a year I worked on the land again but had to stop during the monsoon of 2011 due to the area becoming water logged as the drain that used to drain the area was clogged up with sand and debris. Together with two other neighbours we cleaned up the drain and constructed a concrete sump to prevent further clogging, thus rendering the area to be usable again.

This was how the area looked like way back in 2009. The area was covered with rumput buluh or rumput bulu (lopatherum gracile) and semalu (mimosa sp).
 I had asked my neighbour Pak Mat to join me in working the area as he had done so the fist time with me. Being old he preferred to maintain his small plot of maize and watermelon planted in rubber tyres filled with soil to raise its level for fear that a heavy rain may submerge his plants.
Pak Mat's garden.
 Pak Mat's sole watermelon  fruit only managed to grow to palm size. I doubt it can grow any bigger than this as his soil in the tyre is very limited.

Clearing up the area was much easier this time around as a neighbour had used the area for his cattles to graze and thus the grasses were kept low. In March this year I started to plant up the area with the usual vegetables which is easy to plant and which I love to eat. Yes you guessed it right, kangkong and bayam again.
A few beds were made and planted.

The initial two beds of kangkong (ipomea aquatic) and bayam merah or red spinach (Amaranthus gangeticus). All the beds were four feet wide at the base and 9 inches high with varying lengths.

 A simple shallow well was dug to provide the water. Since the land is close to an irrigation canal, the seepage from it kept the water table high. Should the well dry up when the canal is not functioning during the rice harvesting season, I will have to water the plants using water from my tap.

Another bed was added to accomodate the exess seedlings that needed to be thinned once the seeds germinated. The cangkul was all the tool I need to cultivate the soil.

More beds were created and by now I have added the ubi setelo or keledek or sweet potatoes (ipomea batatas), ubi kayu (manihot sativus) and serai or lemongrass (cymbopogon) to the list of plants found in my vegetable plot.

The kangkong was easy to plant but somehow the red spinach failed me and I had it replaced with sawi or choy sam to the Chinese.
Young kangkong plants will taste great especially if it is fried with belacan. I prefer it in soup with rice noodles garnished with a rich dose of fresh prawns.

The sawi (Brassica sp.) or choy sam to the Chinese isn't our favorite vegetable and after the first crop, I stopped planting it.

My first bed of sweet potatoes and beside it the newly planted tapioca bed.

The maize plot is growing very well. Soon I will have them boiled.

The plot is enlarging.

Where I threw my previous crop of red spinach, a new crop emerges. What luck.

My gardening tools with my gardening shoes.

My sweet potato is nearing maturity after 3 months.

The exposed tubers after some digging.

The harvest from the first bed of keledek. Though not much, the nearest neighbors will get them too.

The proximity of the vegetable plot to my house made it possible for me to tend to the plants daily.

With enough exercise working on the plot, I am eating well and putting on weight. I am looking forward to Ramadhan and hopefully a month of fasting will help to shed off some fat. The produce from the plot will be shared with the neighbors some especially those that suppled me with seeds and manure. It will be payback time and thank you Allah for allowing me to gain some pahala sedekah.

PAS Bina UMNO Roboh

Posted: 09 Jul 2012 10:00 PM PDT

Umno sanggup buat apa saja asalkan mereka terus berkuasa, Umno sanggup robohkan masjid hanya kerana PAS yang membinanya, Umno sanggup tolak hukum hudud hanya kerana PAS yang memperjuangkannya

Kerana bagi UMNO, mereka hendak menjadi juara. UMNO cemburu PAS mendahuluinya.

Tetapi mereka khuatir dan takut jika hukum hudud akan terkena batang hidungnya. Lantas itu diciptakan istilah HUDUD PAS agar rakyat terkeliru dengannya.

Namun, kebenaran dan keadilan tetap muncul akhirnya. Rasulullah saw bersabda, mafhumnya:

Daripada Thauban r.a. katanya, Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda: "Akan sentiasa ada satu golongan dari kalangan umatku yang sentiasa berada di atas kebenaran. Orang yang menyalahi mereka tidak akan memudharatkan sehingga Allah memberikan keputusannya sedangkan mereka tetap berada dalam keadaan tersebut"

The Four Brothers

Posted: 09 Jul 2012 07:45 PM PDT

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida .

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the house."

The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out her "Thank You" notes.

She wrote: Milton , the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing, and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious Thank you so much."

Love, Mama

Ng's Australian residency had led to questions over her loyalty to the country. — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, July 9 — Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen confirmed today she had applied to be an Australian permanent resident (PR), saying she was "proud" her son had been educated there even as Malaysia struggles to be a regional education hub. The MCA vice-president told reporters today she had applied for Australian residency in the 1990s but gave it up in 1995 after her son had completed his studies there.
"I went to Australia for my son's education. I am very proud of it (as) my son is a very successful lawyer. I have no regrets," she was quoted as saying by news portal Malaysiakini.
Ng had come under fire after several websites questioned her loyalty to King and country as she had applied for the Australian PR while being a senator.
Political rival Lim Guan Eng had indirectly alluded to her status yesterday during his public debate with MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, saying not every Malaysian is able to get PR in Australia.
Ng told reporters today she was offering the explanation to "prevent being misunderstood".
"This is typical of Guan Eng. He ran out of issues and instead dug up something that happened 20 years ago," she was quoted saying, in reply to the DAP secretary-general.

Ada lambang "lanun" di topi yang dipakainya

Individu yang mengaku dirinya "Imam Mahadi, yang mengamuk mau mengulingkan kerajaan dengan bantuan pasangannya dengan hanya  bersenjatakan sebilah pedang samurai seperti dilaporkan oleh Utuseks Meloya dikenali dengan nama Khalil Afandi Hamid dan memiliki blog jenama Jaya Negara

Lelaki yang menyerbu pejabat JPM dan cuba menyerang orang ramai dengan pedang samurai di JPM rupanya seorang Penulis Blog  Jaya Negara. Allahyarham sempat menulis entri terakhir  tentang hidup dan mati. (Baca di sini...

Mengikut kenyataan polis, lelaki  ini mengangkat dirinya sebagai Imam Mahadi. Tak dapat dipastikan sama ada dia ni penyokong mana-mana parti sebab dari blognya itu tidak digambarkan ideologi politiknya. Pas pun dia bantai, Najib pun dia bedal. Tapi dia banyak bercakap mengenai ketuhanan...

Ulasan GB

Ada persoalan yang agak pelik dan misteri di dalam kes ini.

1) Nak gulingkan kerajaan cuma dengan dua orang?
2) Topi ada lambang tengkorak, nak tunjukkan apa sebenarnya?
3) Pedang samurai - jarang orang Melayu guna pedang, mungkin ini kes terpencil.
4) Belenging tak berbaju (malah gambar profail di blog pun begitu). Perwatakan sedemikian aneh dan pelik kecuali orang tidak siuman.
5) Laporan Utusan menyebut dia bertakbir beberapa kali. Betulkah atau auta Utusan?
6) Mati kerana terkena tembakan di kaki.. mungkin darah dah keluar banyak
7) Blognya baru dibuat 1 bulan yang lalu.. semacam dirancang...
