Selangor to sell off Brisdale Hotel?

Selangor to sell off Brisdale Hotel?


Selangor to sell off Brisdale Hotel?

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 10:20 AM PDT

Brisdale Hotel in Jalan Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur is perhaps among the best budget hotels in town. Its location and facility are its main fatal attraction. Occupancy rate is always high, between 70-80 per cent on weekdays and 100 per cent during weekends and festive holidays.

That makes it a 'making money' entity, and of course whoever owns and runs it should be proud of such an achievement.



The rightful owner is none other the Selangor State Government through  Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor Berhad (KPS).

It took over Brisdale International Hotel Sdn Bhd (BIH) under an acquisition deal in 2008 for the entire issued and paid-up share capital of the hotel, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB) by Cash Band (M) Berhad (SBB), a 99 per cent-owned subsidiary of KPS for a cash consideration of RM10,000,000 (proposed acquisition).

It also in involved a proposed assumption and settlement of the debt owing by BIH to KHSB of RM43,000,000 by CBB in conjunction with the proposed acquisition (proposed debt settlement).

The Purchase Consideration for the Sales Shares was arrived at based on a discount to the net assets of BIH as at 31 December 2007 after adjusting for the revaluation surplus of approximately RM24.7 million arising from the market value of Brisdale Hotel.

That was ascribed by Messrs Raine & Horne International Zaki and Partners Sdn Bhd of RM55.0 million as at March 4, 2008 using the profit, comparison and cost method of valuation.

Its all a big 'family' business.

As how Penangites describe it 'pi mai, pi mai dok tang tu jugak'. Just take a big circle and it will bring you right to where you got started - everything is about Selangor.

However, that was done during the Barisan Nasional era, under Mentri Besar Khir Toyo.

After Khalid Ibrahim took over, Pakatan Rakyat is said to be taking full advantage of the Selangor 'ownership' by organising numerous functions - some they fully paid, some not - and that has brought about some domestic problems to the hotel management.

The hotel has been making money ever since and there is no way that it would go burst when all operational factors are taken into consideration.

But rumors are rife that Khalid's government was considering to sell it off to an interested party for RM120 million. Worst still, to a foreigner.

The Pakatan state government must have a bona fide reason for such a plan, if its true but I still think it will not be a wise move, considering how lucrative hotel business is nowadays, plus the key fact that the hotel is most sought by tourists.

Unless Khalid has the best reason to do so...something like investing the proceed into a better project for the rakyat.


Asalkan Bukan Najib ?

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 10:10 AM PDT


(The Malaysian Insider) - Selepas menerbitkan dua buah buku kontroversi melibatkan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak yang bertajuk, "Najib PM terakhir" dan "Kesalahan-kesalahan Najib", penulisnya, Shahbudin Husin kini menerbitkan buku terakhir beliau sebagai ahli Umno bertajuk "Asalkan Bukan Najib."
Shahbudin yang berusia awal 40-an itu menjelaskan buku terbarunya itu merupakan kesinambungan daripada dua bukunya sebelum ini yang telah pun mendapat tempat di hati masyarakat, terutamanya generasi muda yang gemar melihat perkembangan politik di negara ini.
Karya terbaru dengan 300 muka surat ini dikeluarkan demi mengajak pembaca dan rakyat Malaysia untuk menilai semula rasionalnya Najib sebagai perdana menteri malaysia dengan begitu banyak isu yang dilihatnya tidak diselesaikan, sebaliknya Najib lebih gemar menggunakan pendekatan "tunggu dan lihat".
"Banyak perkara yang Najib ambil tindakan hanya setelah setelah sesuatu isu menjadi parah. Contohnya skandal Pusat Fidlot Nasional (NFC) ... bila sudah semakin parah baru beliau masuk campur, dan mengambil tindakan terhadap (Datuk Seri) Shahrizat (Jalil).
Penulis buku, Shahbudin Husin
"Malah, banyak lagi perkara saya telah sentuh dalam buku terbaru ini, yang mana mengajak masyarakat Malaysia menukar perdana menteri ... tidak kira daripada Umno mahupun Pakatan Rakyat (PR), tapi bukan Najib," jelasnya dalam satu pertemuan dengan The Malaysian Insider baru-baru ini.
Antara tokoh yang Shahbudin merasakan lebih layak menjawat jawatan itu adalah Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, veteran Umno dan Pengerusi Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, dan Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Hadi Awang.
"Mereka ini adalah antara yang paling layak menjawat jawatan perdana menteri. Bukan Najib," tegasnya lagi.
Buku 32 bab ini turut dihasilkan dengan mengambil kira Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 yang dijangka bakal dilaksanakan tidak lama lagi.
"Kita sudah tidak perlu tegur Najib, kita perlu tukar. Najib PM yang lemah."


[IKTIBAR] Tiba-tiba Dia Menjerit: Kahwinkan Aku, Kahwinkan Aku!

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 11:03 AM PDT

Seorang solehin dahulunya jika ditawarkan supaya berkahwin pasti menolak, tiba-tiba pada suatu hari dia bangun dari tidur dan berkata; "Kahwinkanlah aku, kahwinkanlah aku."

Orang ramai pun bertanya; "Mengapa tiba-tiba kamu minta kahwin padahal selama ini engkau sentiasa menolak?"

Jawabnya; "Semoga aku mendapat anak, lalu mati ketika masih kecil sehingga menjadi perintis bagiku ke Akhirat."

"Apa maksud kata-kata kamu ini?" tanya orang lagi.

"Aku telah bermimpi seakan-akan hari Kiamat telah tiba dan aku berdiri bersama orang ramai di Mahsyar, dengan rasa yang amat haus sehingga hampir mematahkan leherku.

Tiba-tiba aku nampak anak-anak kecil membawa gelas-gelas perak yang ditutupi sapu tangan dari cahaya. Anak-anak itu mencelah-celah di kalangan orang ramai untuk memberi minum satu-satu.

Aku pun menghulurkan tanganku pada mereka dan berkata; berikan padaku kerana aku juga sangat haus. Tiba-tiba anak-anak kecil itu melihat padaku dan berkata; anda tidak mempunyai anak di kalangan kami dan kami ini hanya memberi minum kepada ibu dan ayah kami. Aku pun bertanya; siapakah kamu? Jawab mereka; kami anak-anak kecil yang mati dari kaum Muslimin.

Moralnya:

Nasihat GB kepada anak dara atau janda, pemuda atau duda, segeralah bernikah demi mengelakkan diri dari tercebur ke lembah dosa dan noda.

Kalau boleh dapat secara halal, kenapa nak pilih secara haram?
Kelau benar kata cinta, beritahu dia, kenapa kita tak nikah saja?
Kerana entah esok lusa salah seorang dari kita, atau kedua-dua, mungkin tiada.
Dalam akhbar sentiasa ada berita, Tuhan ambil nyawa, tak kira masa dan ketika, ada kemalangan yang lansung tak terduga. Sebagai peringatan buat semua.

Gelombang dan gelora untuk melakukan zina pula semakin hari semakin menggila - menunggu mangsa bila-bila masa, walaupun seorang merasa iman dan Islamnya dah cukup kuat pun, tamsilnya di hari hujan yang lebat, payung besar mana pun, tempiasnya tetap terkena jua.

Firman Allah:

Maksudnya: "dan kahwinkanlah orang-orang bujang (lelaki dan perempuan) dalam kalangan kamu, dan orang-orang yang soleh dalam kalangan hamba-hamba kamu baik lelaki mahu perempuan. Jika mereka miskin, Allah akan memberikan kekayaan kepada mereka daripada limpah kurnia-Nya kerana Allah Maha Luas (rahmat-Nya dan limpah kurnia-Nya), lagi Maha Mengetahui. Dan orang-orang yang tidak mempunyai kemampuan berkahwin, hendaklah mereka menjaga kehormatannya sehingga Allah memberi kekayaan kepada mereka daripada limpah kurnia-Nya;" (Surah Al-Nur : 32-33)

Dengan perkahwinan hubungan manusia yang terlarang menjadi halal, dan dengan perkahwinan bercambah biak lagi umat manusia di muka bumi ini. Dengan perkahwinan juga mereka yang miskin boleh menjadi kaya dan dimurahkan rezeki. Dan pada masa yang sama, umat Islam akan berada dalam keadaan aman daripada gangguan mereka yang jahat.

Selain itu, Rasulullah sendiri berkahwin dan beranak pinak. Atas dasar itu, perkahwinan sudah dikira sebagai sunah rasulullah. Banyak hadis yang menjelaskan hal ini yang antaranya ialah:
مَنْ أَحَبَّ فِطْرَتِي فَلْيَسْتَسِنَّ بِسُنَّتِي وَمِنْ سُنَّتِي الْنِكَاحُ
Maksudnya: Sesiapa yang sukakan fitrahku maka contohilah sunahku, dan sebahagian daripada sunahku ialah bernikah.

Dalam hadis yang lain rasulullah bersabda:
اَلنِّكَاحُ سُنَّتِي فَمَنْ رَغِبَ عَنْ سُنَّتِي فَلَيسَ مِنِّي
Maksudnya: Nikah adalah sunahku, maka sesiapa yang membenci sunahku maka dia bukanlah dalam golongan umatku.

Kita dianjur supaya sentiasa berpesan-memesan sesama kita:

Demi masa
seseungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian
kecuali mereka yang beriman dan beramal saleh
pesan-memesan dengan kebenaran
pesan memesan dengan kesabaran

- Al-Asr


Pua vs Chua: Son of porn star, Soi Lek, in deep shit

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 08:11 AM PDT

Pua all set to debunk Chua over Talam

Patrick Lee | July 5, 2012
The PJ Utara MP says he will show how Chua Tee Yong failed in his corruption allegations against the Selangor state government.

PETALING JAYA: DAP has vowed to debunk MCA's 'expose' of the Selangor state government's alleged RM1 billion Talam Corporation deal.
DAP national publicity secretary Tony Pua attacked Labis MP (MCA) Chua Tee Yong's Talam revelation and threatened to break the latter's allegations apart.
Pua plans on doing this at a press conference tomorrow, adding: "Chua should learn that before making an expose, he must get his basic facts right, or the pie will be in your face."
On July 3, Chua said the Pakatan Rakyat-run Selangor state government had possibly misused public funds in bailing out Talam.
The MCA Young Professionals Bureau chief alleged the Selangor had done so via a RM392 million supplementary budget passed in the state's legislative assembly in 2009.
He added that the state bought an additional RM676 million worth of assets from Talam.
In a salvo against Chua, Pua said that Talam had had its financial regularisation plan by July 1 2009, long before its purported deal with Selangor, which he added, was held at the end of 2009.
He added that Talam's shares were "never suspended" even as a PN17 company, and were freely traded on the stock exchange.
It is expected that DAP will reveal more on the matter tomorrow.
Responding to MCA's claims, the Selangor state government has intended to sue MCA over its allegations.



[TRAGIS - BERGAMBAR] Budak Rentung Atas Katil

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 08:01 AM PDT

Johor Bahru - Seorang kanak-kanak lelaki maut dalam kejadian kebakaran yang memusnahkan rumahnya di Jalan Permas 2/2, Taman Permas Jaya, di sini, semalam.

Dalam kejadian kira-kira jam 9.15 pagi itu, mangsa, Muhammad Aminuddin Mohammad Nor Idris (gambar kecil) yang bakal menyambut ulang tahunnya yang kedua pada 19 Julai ini ditemui rentung di atas katil dalam bilik di tingkat dua rumah teres berkenaan selepas api berjaya dipadamkan.

Difahamkan kanak-kanak itu dan keluarganya baru sahaja berpindah ke rumah yang berusia 30 tahun itu jam 9 malam kelmarin. Mereka sebelum ini tinggal di kawasan Stulang Baru, di sini.

Aminuddin menangis tanpa henti awal pagi Ibu mangsa, Nor Nadia Abdul Samad, 25, berkata, ketika kejadian, suaminya Mohammad Nor Idris Ahmad, 29, yang merupakan pekerja Tenaga Nasional Berhad sedang bekerja manakala dia bersama anak sulungnya, Muhammad Amirul Hakim, 6, berada di tingkat bawah.

Menurut Nor Nadia, sedang dia menyiapkan Amirul untuk ke sekolah, anak keduanya, Nur Aisyah Nadirah, 4, turun dari tingkat atas meninggalkan Aminuddin yang sedang tidur.

"Sebaik sahaja Nur Aisyah turun, saya terhidu seperti sesuatu terbakar dari tingkat atas seterusnya terdengar Aminuddin menjerit memanggil saya.

"Saya nak naik ke atas, tetapi asap terlalu tebal. Saya cuba selamatkan anak saya, namun tidak berjaya," katanya kepada pemberita dengan linangan air mata ketika ditemui di lokasi kejadian.

Nor Nadia berkata, paling menyayat hati, awal pagi sebelum kejadian itu juga Aminuddin menangis tanpa henti sejak dari jam 3 pagi.

"Tetapi selepas dipujuk oleh bapanya baru dia berhenti menangis dan tidur sekitar jam 5 pagi," katanya.

Mayat mangsa dihantar ke Hospital Sultan Ismail (HSI) untuk bedah siasat.

Bomba alami kesukaran

Sementara itu, Ketua Operasi dari Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat Malaysia Taman Johor Jaya, Syed Nasir Syed Abu Bakar berkata, pihaknya tiba di lokasi kejadian 15 minit selepas menerima panggilankecemasan berhubung kebakaran itu pada 9.23 pagi.

Menurutnya, dia bersama sembilan anggota dan satu jentera pada awalnya mengalami kesukaran untuk tiba awal di lokasi kejadian berikutan laluan kawasan perumahan berkenaan agak sempit berikutan terdapat sebilangan kenderaan diletakkan di bahu jalan.

"Anggota kami cuba naik untuk menyelamatkan mangsa, tetapi gagal kerana api terlalu marak pada waktu itu. Tambahan pula, risikonya sangat tinggi apabila kami dapat tahu yang rumah ini berlantaikan papan.

"Kira-kira lima minit kemudian, kami berjaya mengawal kebakaran dan anggota kami bersama bapa mangsa naik ke rumah untuk mengeluarkan mangsa. Punca sebenar kejadian dan jumlah kerugian masih disiasat," katanya.

Keluarga terima lawatan

Dalam pada itu, Adun Permas, Datuk M Munusamy yang berkesempatan hadir melawat keluarga mangsa dan tempat kejadian berkata, pihaknya akan menyalurkan bantuan segera termasuklah dari segi pengurusan jenazah serta bantuan berupa barangan keperluan asas.

Keluarga terbabit turut dikunjungi Penyelia Pusat Aduan Rakyat (PAR) Zon Permas, Syed Othman Syed Abdullah yang hadir menyerahkan sumbangan berupa wang tunai.

"Saya mewakili Pas Kawasan Pasir Gudang bersimpati dengan apa yang berlaku. Kami bersedia untuk menyalurkan bantuan keperluan susulan dari masa ke semasa," katanya. -SH











Kanna vs Sri Paandi: Fake vs real banana leaf meal

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 09:19 AM PDT

My favourite place to go for lunch every Wednesday if time permits.

Cloudy Wednesday. ;-)
Sri Paandi (PJ) here I come.

The starters. First, the side dishes.

Next, the rice.

Mork curry (yoghurt curry): The remainder.

Soon, top-up again! Flood!


 Real banana leaf meal is really yummy but fake banana leaf meal takes away the 'oomph'.

Just a simple meal on fake banana leaf @ Kanna Curry House.

The Equal Rights Trust (ERT) Launches Situation Report on Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 06:16 AM PDT

SOURCE: The Equal Rights Trust (ERT) Launches Situation Report on Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar

London, 02 July 2012

The Equal Rights Trust (ERT) today launches its situation report Burning Homes, Sinking Lives: A situation report on violence against stateless Rohingya in Myanmar and their refoulement from Bangladesh. The report presents the findings and observations of ERT researchers.

The report, which includes testimony collected from over 50 interviews with Rohingya in the period 13-29 June 2012, paints an extremely bleak picture, which demands urgent action to prevent further human rights violations including loss of life, suffering, forced displacement and damage to property. In addition to the testimony of victims, the report reviews the legal obligations of the parties to this crisis and makes recommendations to the governments of Myanmar and Bangladesh, the UNHCR and the international community.

Main Findings

In Myanmar, what began as sectarian violence has evolved into large-scale state sponsored violence against the Rohingya. The violence began on 3 June 2012 and has mainly occurred in Sittwe and Maungdaw. It includes killings, rape and burning of houses. On 10 June, a state of military emergency was declared, after which the UN pulled its staff out of the area, leaving no international observers on the ground. On 29 June, it was announced that UNHCR staff had returned to Rakhine State. From 16 June onwards, the military became more actively involved in committing acts of violence and other human rights abuses against the Rohingya including killings and mass scale arrests of Rohingya men and boys in North Rakhine State.

Bangladesh, in contravention of its international legal obligations, closed its border and pushed back into dangerous waters many Rohingya fleeing the violence and persecution in Myanmar. The first boat with Rohingya refugees arrived in Bangladesh and was pushed back – refouled – on 11 June 2012. On 18 June, 139 persons in eight boats were pushed back from Teknaf. However, more refugees continue to arrive. No visible steps have been taken by the government of Bangladesh to provide humanitarian aid for the refugees, thus shifting this burden onto local residents.

The legal obligations of both Myanmar and Bangladesh require them to protect all persons within their territories or subject to their jurisdictions, regardless of whether they are citizens, stateless persons or refugees. In their treatment of the Rohingya, both countries appear to have violated the right to life, the right to be free from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, the right to liberty and freedom from arbitrary detention, the right to food and shelter including the fundamental right to be free from hunger and the right to the highest attainable standard of health. Bangladesh has also acted in violation of the rights to seek and to enjoy asylum and not to be subjected to refoulement. The severity of the treatment of the Rohingya and the widespread, systematic nature of the violence additionally raises concern of crimes against humanity being committed by Myanmar.

Recommendations

ERT Recommendations to the Government of Myanmar include that it urgently takes all necessary steps to end the violence and protect all individuals in Myanmar; fully cooperates with UN agencies to enable independent monitoring of the situation and the provision of humanitarian assistance and support to affected communities; brings martial law in the region to an end as soon as possible; conducts an impartial and transparent enquiry into the causes of the violence; and reduces statelessness in Myanmar by establishing clear paths towards the acquisition of citizenship and effective nationality for all stateless persons including the Rohingya.

ERT Recommendations to the Government of Bangladesh
include that it opens its borders to Rohingya refugees fleeing violence and persecution in Myanmar and refrains from refoulement or forcible return of all refugees, asylum seekers and persons of concern; fully cooperates with UN agencies and international NGOs to enable the provision of humanitarian assistance and support to all refugees; and fully cooperates with the international community in providing humanitarian support and protection in a fair and non-discriminatory manner to all long-term Rohingya refugees and persons of concern within Bangladesh.

The report also makes recommendations to the UN, Member States and the International Community.

Perintah tahanan reman sehingga Ahad ini ke atas beliau, nama sebenarnya Syed Abdullah Syed Husein Al-Attas, 46, bersama seorang wanita dipercayai teman wanitanya, Siti Nadhirah Mohd Zain, 26, dikeluarkan oleh Majistret Md Isa Mohamed di Mahkamah Majistret Johor Bahru di sini, hari ini.

In Politics, Stupidity Is Not A Handicap!

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 05:10 AM PDT

This evening, while baking my butterscotch cake for my son, I did a bit of research about Napolean Bonaparte and thought I'd share some of his sayings with you....


"In politics, stupidity is not a handicap."

Ability is of little account without opportunity.

"Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in."

"The surest way to remain poor is to be honest."

"Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest."

"I can no longer obey; I have tasted command, and I cannot give it up."

"It requires more courage to suffer than to die."

"Ability is of little account without opportunity."

"One must change one's tactics every ten years if one wishes to maintain one's superiority."

"The word impossible is not in my dictionary."

"If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing."

"In politics... never retreat, never retract... never admit a mistake."

"Religion is what keeps the poor man from murdering the rich."

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake."

"It is the cause and not the death that makes the martyr."

"If you want a thing done well, do it yourself."

"The best way to keep one's word is not to give it."

"What is history but a fable agreed upon?"

And to my surprise, I never knew Napolean was the one who said the following statement...

"A picture is worth a thousand words."

Kroni BN Dapat RM244 juta Projek Selenggara Kawalan Trafik

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 05:07 AM PDT

Naib Presiden KEADILAN, Nurul Izzah Anwar mendedahkan, kerajaan Umno BN memberikan kontrak penyelenggaraan sistem kawalan trafik di seluruh negara kepada kroni mereka.

Katanya, projek bernilai RM244.5 juta itu diberi kepada Selex Sistemeni Integrati (Selex) dan Advanced Air Traffic Systems (AAT) dengan kontrak selama lima tahun.

Beliau berkata, berdasarkan dokumen sebut harga yang ditinggalkan di depan pejabatnya, anggaran penyelenggaraan untuk setiap tahun berjumlah RM45,142, 987.

"Ia meliputi Kawalan Trafik Udara (ATC) Kuala Lumpur, Subang Interim, Stesen Radar Pengawasan Menengah Monopulse (MSSR) Genting, Stesen Pengawasan Radar Rendah (PSR) dan Pengawasan Radar menengah (SSR) Langkawi, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu dan Miri.

"Ia turut melibatkan stesen PSR, SSR dan ATC Johor Bahru, Kota Bharu, Sibu, Penang, Tawau serta Kuala Terengganu," katanya pada sidang media di Ibu Pejabat KEADILAN di sini pagi tadi.

Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai itu turut mendedahkan, kos keseluruhan penyelenggaraan Program Pemodenan Perkhidmatan Trafik Udara Malaysia (MATSMP) bernilai RM35,521,610 dalam empat lebel.

Izzah berkata, kerajaan memberikan kontrak secara runding terus kepada Selex dan AAT kononnya syarikat lain tidak pakar dengan sistem yang dipasang kedua-dua syarikat itu.

"Sepatutnya, tender perlu dibuat berasingan untuk mendapat nilai terbaik. Saya difahamkan sistem sedia ada di KLIA dibekalkan 10 syarikat berbeza," katanya.

Lebih dikesalinya, kedua-dua syarikat itu bukan sahaja gagal menyelenggara sistem radar malah wujud kecacatan sistem trafik hingga mengancam keselamatan ruang udara.

Menurut Izzah, maklumat dalaman diperoleh daripada Jabatan Penerbagan Awam (DCA) mendapati, sistem radar telah beku daripada 0614z hingga 0625z selama lima saat.

"Selain itu, berlaku 'rebooting' komputer pegawai-pegawai trafik udara dan tiada pertukaran teknologi seperti yang dijanjikan Selex dan AAT.

"DCA terpaksa menunggu jurutera dari Itali hingga melambatkan bantuan teknikal yang diperlukan sedangkan kos kontrak adalah tinggi," ujarnya.

Pada 8 Jun lalu, Izzah mendedahkan, projek MATSMP bernilai RM280 juta diberi kepada Selex dan AAT secara tender tertutup.

Selex merupakan sebahagian syarikat Finmeccanica Spa dari Itali dan terlibat pelbagai dakwaan rasuah di Itali, Cyprus, Panama dan Namibia.

Manakala AAT dimiliki oleh Tirai Variasi Sdn Bhd iaitu syarikat keluarga Datuk Seri Jamaluddin Jarjis, bekas Menteri Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi. -KD


To Juice or Not To Juice?

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 03:16 AM PDT

According to an article by Claire Coleman in The Daily Mail, "Juicing can wreck your looks: Flaking skin, hair loss and rotting teeth. The latest A-list diet craze has some ugly side-effects."



The article said:


Last month's news that Jennifer Aniston has become a veg juice devotee, regularly slugging back a concoction of cucumbers, beetroot, spinach, kale, garlic, ginger, carrots and celery, will only fuel the juicing fad.


Because look around any high-end gym or yoga studio these days and you'll see women swigging something that looks like it's been scooped from a pond. This is the juice cleanse, or the juice detox — don't ever refer to it as a diet, that would sound like you're doing it to lose weight, whereas, of course, this is all about purifying your body.


Popular among A-listers including Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker, juice detoxes have gone mainstream, with legions of women pulping Tesco's entire fruit and veg aisle themselves, or paying up to £40 a day — yes, really — to have supplies delivered to their door.


It sounds terribly good for you — just masses of fruit and vegetables all juiced together, filling you full of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. But while if you're doing it Aniston-style and eating normally for most of the week, it probably won't do you any serious harm, the truth is that a juice regime that lasts several weeks — or even just several days — could actually be wreaking all sorts of havoc on your health.

Abby Abadi Teruskan Iltizam Bersama PAS

Penyataan Abby jadi hiasan facebook anak muda

KUALA LUMPUR: Kata-kata pelakun Abby Abadi atau nama sebenarnya Arbaiyah binti Abdul Manan yang tidak takut lagi menyokong parti pembangkang kini menjadi hiasan Facebook anak-anak muda Malaysia.

Kata-katanya disebarkan merata-rata dan memberikan ispirasi kepada pelbagai pihak dalam menuntut hak mereka.

Kata-kata Abby bahawa dia tidak takut lagi sokong parti pembangkang setelah mendapat hidayah Allah dikongsi (share) oleh 467 pengguna facebook dan disukai (like) oleh 1,952 pengguna.

248 pengguna pula membuat komen sehingga kini selepas mula dibuat naik ke facebook semalam.

"Dulu saya takut kalau sokong parti pembangkang.
Tak dapat masuk television. Tapi bila dapat hidayah Allah, saya tak takut pada sesiapa.

"Saya tak tau dari mana dapat keberanian tu,
tak masuk television pun tak per. Dah lama sangat dah saya kat television tu.
Banyak dah dosa dalam tu,"
kata Abby Abadi pelakun yang popular dengan filem dan drama TV Gerak Khas.

Abby kini bergerak dari satu pentas ceramah ke satu pentas di seluruh negara.

Semasa ke Kelantan, beliau turut mengunjungi Menteri Besar, Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Aziz.

Ucapan beliau yang mahu mencari seorang 'ustaz' untuk membimbingnya telah menimbulkan pelbagai reaksi negatif dan positif.

Pendek kata, Abby telah banyak bergerak dari pentas ke pentas ceramah.

Sebahagian aktivis Pakatan tidak senang dengannya kerana orang semacam Abby tidak sepatutnya menghabiskan masa dengan ceramah sahaja.

Ini kerana, bakat sebenar mereka bukannya berceramah tetapi aktiviti seni yang sudah sebati dengan mereka sebelum ini.

Antara yang menyuarakan rasa tidak senang itu adalah kartunis Zunar.

Zunar sudah tentu faham dengan apa yang berlaku kerana sebelum ini beliau yang sepatutnya aktif sebagai kartunis juga pernah terseleweng sekejap apabila beliau menjadi Ketua Pengarang Akhbar PKR, Suara Keadilan.

Kini Zunar memperkuatkan kembali bidangnya iaitu kartunis dan berjaya membuat pameran solo ke seluruh dunia termasuk London. -HD

Abby pertahan Pa s

Cerita pelakon Abby Abadi menyertai parti Pas sudah lama heboh sejak keputusannya berhijrah. Tambahan pula, dia sering dilihat berada di kebanyakan ceramah anjuran Pas.

Bagaimanapun, Abby sebelum ini pernah menafi kan hal itu dan mengakui tidak berminat untuk melibatkan diri dengan mana-mana parti politik.

Namun sejak kebelakangan ini, Abby dilihat banyak mengeluarkan status yang menjurus kepada keagamaan. Tidak terkecuali mengenai perihal Pas.

Paling ketara, semalam, status terbaru di laman sosial, Facebook miliknya, terang-terangan menyokong dan mempertahankan parti Pas.

Malah, statusnya itu mendapat pelbagai reaksi daripada peminatpeminat. Tidak kurang ada yang menyokong dan ada juga yang menghentam.

Pun begitu, bekas pelakon Gerak Khas ini turut berbalas komen sambil tetap mempertahankan parti itu.

Sementara itu, Zass cuba menghubungi Abby namun tidak berjaya. Adakah Abby sebenarnya sedang berkira-kira hendak mengumumkan penglibatannya dalam parti Pas.

Being awarded porno star of the year and wearing it as a badge of honor

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 02:50 AM PDT

CSL under heavy machine gun fire repeatedly assaulted the enemy's embedded and fortified machine gun nests, even whilst being wounded in the shoulders and shot twice through his balls, he persevered. He beat the shit out of the enemy which fled. Millions of people witnessed the scenes which were actually recorded by an embedded combat journalist. Everyone praised CSL for his outstanding courage beyond the call of duty.

CSL became a household name overnight. His son hero worships him. One day CSL's colleagues decided that there could be another person who was as brave as CSL, they named him. It was LGE. They said that LGE did what CSL had previuosly done.

LGE denied ever storming any machine gun nests, let alone taking pot shots at the enemy and that he was no CSL. Everyone of CSL's supporters are adamant that he was another CSL in the making. What CSL does is that he challenges LGE to admit that he too was as brave. To which LGE replies that he had no armored skin like CSL.

When Dickheads whose actions involve adultery, unfaithfulness, fornication, cheating and dishonesty, wear it like a badge of honor and our people still support him, then there is something seriously wrong with the party and the people.

Pada 1 Julai 2012 yang lalu dalam Satu Ceramah Perdana di Pantai Irama, Bachok, di hadapan lebih 8,000 orang che'GuBard bagi pihak Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) telah memanjangkan cabaran dan pendedahan YB Dato' Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (ahli Parlimen Machang) yang mencabar Senator Datuk Dr. Awang Adek agar tampil menjelaskan beberapa persoalan mengenai hubungan beliau dengan seorang ahli peniagaan bernama Chung Hon Cheong.

Di hadapan lebih 8,000 orang pengundi Bachok termasuk ada dikenal pasti pimpinan Umno setempat cabaran telah disampaikan dalam bentuk tayangan slaid yang turut mengandungi gambar dan dokumen berkaitan. Program Ceramah tersebut turut dihadiri oleh selebriti Abby Abadi, YDP PAS Bachok, YB Dato Hj Omar Othman dan Tokoh Ulama Muda Kelantan 2011, Ust A.Mazukh Shaary dan program berterusan sehingga awal pagi dengan menonton beramai - ramai perlawanan akhir Euro 2012.

Pendedahan dan cabaran secara terperinci menggunakan skrin besar telah benar memberikan kesan kepada yang hadir. Selain pendedahan itu ditunjukkan juga bukti penipuan pilihanraya seperti kewujudan kad pengenalan yang punya tarikh luput (milik warga asing) yang boleh mengundi, senarai pengundi yang tidak dapat dikesan nama mereka dalam database JPN dan banyak lagi. 

Merujuk mengenai pendedahan dan cabaran kepada Awang, Chung Hon Cheong ialah pemilik syarikat Sun Prestige Sdn Bhd yang telah mendapat hak mencetak wang kertas RM 2 sebanyak 100 juta keping ketika Awang menjadi salah seorang teraju Bank Negara Malaysia. Hon Cheong juga merupakan pemilik syarikat Vertex United Sdn Bhd juga tidak mungkin secara kebetulan membeli rumah Awang di Damansara dengan harga agak tinggi iaitu RM550,000. Adakah ini semua ada kaitan dengan 'anugerah' projek mencetak nota matawang negara ?

Awang juga dicabar menjelaskan benar atau tidak Hon Cheong melalui syarikat Ultimate Holidays Sdn Bhd telah membuat bayaran untuk Awang keluar Jepun pada 28 Jun - 1 Julai.

Setelah diteliti mengenai Honda Civic 1.6 yang digunakan isteri Awang wujud keraguan dan turut dikaitkan dengan ahli perniagaan yang sama. Awang perlu menjawab benarkah kereta tersebut diuruskan pembayaran bulananya sebanyak RM2122 sebulan oleh Hon Cheong. Didapati Hon Cheong juga banyak menyumbang ke pertubuhan - pertubuhan berkaitan Awang.

Itu hanya sebahagian dari dokumen lain. Banyak dokumen lain seperti pembayaran road tax, insurans, kelab golf, bil - bil seperti telefon yang atas nama Awang diuruskan oleh ahli perniagaan tersebut.

Semua didedahkan dalam 'slaid' depan ribuaan orang di Bachok. Kini SAMM mencabar agar Awang tampil untuk menjawab persoalan ini jika berani kerana difahamkan semua butiran, dokumen lengkap masih banyak lagi di tangan Saifuddin. Masa 3 minggu diberikan semakin berlalu. Jika Awang hanya mengambil sikap mendiam diri maka SAMM akan sekali lagi berada di bumi Kelantan dan ole-ole pendedahan bercetak dan lengkap akan berada di tangan ribuan pengundi Bachok selepas eidulFitri.

Sekian dan terima kasih.

Does Diet Soda Make You Fat, or is it Really Good for Weight Loss?

We all know by now that soda (aka "pop" in some areas) is one of the most evil things you can put in your body… the nasty chemicals, the gut-fattening high fructose corn syrup, and a myriad of health problems caused by this carbonated cocktail worshipped by those that don't care about their health or body. Since you're one of my subscribers, I know that you actually do care about your health and

Advantages of Aquaponic Farming

Posted: 05 Jul 2012 12:15 AM PDT

Aquaponics is a new way of approaching farming. Unlike traditional agriculture where you needed plants to grow vegetables, with aquaponics you need water and fish in order to have healthy food on your table each and every day. Basically, aquaponics relies on the interdependence between fish and plants: the fish produces bio-nutrients for the plants, while the plants clean the water, creating a


For Burning Fat, This Works Like Crazy

  Yes, it's true that weight training with cardio will be much more effective in overall fat loss than just doing cardio alone. In fact, there's several reasons for this and before I dive into them, let's make it clear that if you trying to burn fat and not doing weight training as part of that, you are really taking some big steps backwards. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to burn
