[WASPADA] Berhati-Hati Ketika Membeli-Belah, Beg Tangan Ditoreh!

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 11:00 AM PDT

Dalam keghairahan orang ramai terutama kaum wanita membeli-belah di sekitar Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (TAR) dan Jalan Masjid India di sini, mereka diingatkan supaya tidak leka dengan perbuatan jenayah seperti menyeluk saku dan ragut.

Anggota Jawatankuasa Biro Keselamatan Persatuan Peniaga dan Penjaja Lorong TAR, Abdul Rahman Sulaiman menasihati kaum wanita agar tidak memakai barang kemas dan berharga serta membawa beg tangan yang terlalu besar kerana ia boleh mengundang bahaya.

"Kita tangkap beberapa warga asing yang menoreh beg tangan pengunjung dengan menggunakan pisau kecil dan mencuri barangan berharga seperti telefon bimbit dan beg duit.

"Saya anggarkan antara 30,000 hingga 40,000 pengunjung datang membeli-belah di Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman dan Jalan Masjid India bagi membuat persiapan Hari Raya dan mereka datang seawal jam 8 pagi," katanya kepada Bernama.

Abdul Rahman berkata, anggota persatuannya bergilir-gilir bertugas di kedua-dua kawasan terbabit bagi memastikan keselamatan pengunjung.

"Kami bertugas 24 jam sehari dengan 10 orang bersiap sedia di tempat khas kami bagi menjaga keselamatan pengunjung serta kira-kira 400 penjaja," katanya.

Persatuan itu yang ditubuhkan sejak 2007 sentiasa berkerjasama dengan Rela, Jabatan Pertahanan Awam, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur serta Polis Diraja Malaysia bagi menjaga keselamatan di kawasan terbabit.

Seorang pengunjung Nur Baiti Bukhari, 29, dari Damansara Damai berkata, beliau mengambil kesempatan untuk mengunjungi bazar itu sempena cuti hujung minggu. –BERNAMA


The Art of War in the East

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 07:41 AM PDT

Sun Tzu is famous for his strategic philosophy whereby he advocates attacking the opposing side's weaknesses.

"Now an army may be likened to water, for just as flowing water avoid the heights and hastens to the lowlands, so an army avoids strength and strikes weakness."
~Sun Tzu~

In times of competition, key players may appear to be invincible and their enemies may even fail to discern inherent weaknesses. To counter such scenarios, one must discover ways whereby those strengths can be turned into weaknesses.

And that is exactly what we see in Sabah.

For a long time, Sabah had been considered a fixed deposit for the status quo to deliver the seats for it to form the ruling coaition. As such, decades of governance over this state gave them seemingly unassailable invincibility. Hence, Anwar had to find an approach that would work. The Pakatanization of West Malaysia had borne some success but the real battle is in the East.

Fully aware of the discontent of Sabahans, Anwar went on his 'campaign to offer Pakatan as the escape hatch for the grouses and concerns of Sabahans.

So now, Anwar is on the silent assault to win Sabahans to be on the road to Putrajaya. Whether he will reach his destination remains to be seen.

1. To that end, he has to politically socialize Sabahans and wrest support from them without destroying the delicate social fabric of the state.

"Generally in war, the best policy is to take a state intact; to ruin it is inferior to this....For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill." 
~Sun Tzu~

Sun Tzu calls this the need to "win-all-without-fighting". To survive and prosper, PR has to capture the heart and spirit of Sabahans - to offer them the alternative or the escape hatch from all that they have been suffering.

Looking at the development of events, it is clear that Anwar has learnt from his Sept 16th debacle. Rather than making a blanket overconfident statement, he is now using a subtle, indirect, and low-key approach that appears harmless so as not to trigger BN into an onslaught. So we do not hear or see an en bloc exodus but one that comes little by little. The question at the tip of our tongues is - who is next?

2) Clearly, Anwar is avoiding the strength of BN (election machinery, resources etc) and capitalizing on their weaknesses instead.

"An army may be likened to water, for just as flowing water avoids the heights and hastens to the lowlands, so an army avoids strength and strikes weakness." 
~Sun Tzu~

Older, wiser and maybe more tired, we do not see Anwar or Pakatan leaders launching head-on, direct attacks against their nemesis like in the past. But they are capitalising on the thorn in the side of Sabahans which is their opponents' weaknesses. In this way, it is likely PR can maximize their gains with little use of resources. Whether or not this can pay dividends remains to be seen. Hence, I believe no one must take things for granted or foolishly assume that things are turning for the better for PR.

3) The time has come for PR to talk less, think more and skilfully maximise their intelligence to achieve their agenda.

"Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril"
~Sun Tzu~

Realistically, for any major battle/competition, one needs to discover the weaknesses of the enemy and even  a deep understanding of their strategy, capabilities, thoughts and desires. At the same time, PR needs a time of consolidation to reassess and know their own strengths and weaknesses. With a realistic assessment of the battle "terrain", PR can prevent the enemy from working against them. Unfortunately, history shows that PR leaders talk a lot, tell all they want to do - thereby giving their enemy time and ground to plan and strategize against them. Hence, as a preventive measure, it is critical for PR to SHUT UP, hide their plans and keep them secret.

4) Seize the day speedily and be prepared

"To rely on rustics and not prepare is the greatest of crimes; to be prepared beforehand for any contingency is the greatest of virtues."
~Sun Tzu~

In any battle situation, it is essential that one must exploit foresight and even deception that we can act with blinding speed. That is not to say that things are done hastily. Rather, ensure preparation and cut down on processes eg in decision making or even public relations exercise. The ultimate goal is to win the support of the Sabahans. For that, they need to empathise and to deal with skeletons in the closet.

5) With unity, comes power.

"Therefore, those skilled in war bring the enemy to the field of battle and are not brought there by him."
~Sun Tzu~

Instead of being the underdogs, it is time PR changes or redefines the rules of contest that these can be in line with their agenda and this can be achieved via alliances so as to be able to call the shots in the game.

6) Effective leadership is vital!

"When one treats people with benevolence, justice and righteousness, and reposes confidence in them, the army will be united in mind and all will be happy to serve their leaders."
~Sun Tzu~

In "The Art of War", Sun Tzu argues that only a special kind of leader can implement these strategic concepts to bring out the best in people. Leadership qualities needed are wisdom, sincerity, courageousness, strictness and the ability to be human. Selflessness in putting the needs of others behind those of the majority will elicit the best results.

Before PR supporters go on a victory dance even before the battle has begun, we have to ask ourselves - can PR leaders do that? To put the needs of Sabahans FIRST before their need for dominance and power? If they can, that will pave the way to Putrajaya. If not, we can start buying boxes of tissues, be in mourning and after which we have to start planning for GE 14.

This evening, The Malaysian Insider reported HERE  that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim suggested today that the government had deliberately refused to have the Sabah Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) probe those responsible for the alleged "citzenships-for-votes" deal with foreigners in order to protect certain personalities. He went on to say that "the entire RCI was flawed as its terms were lacking details and do not include identifying those responsible or recommending punishment on them."

Well, it is up to Anwar and Pakatan to tell Sabahans their blue print of action as creatively and as convincingly. If they can leverage on all the weaknesses of the other side as spelled out in THIS ARTICLE, I believe a better Malaysia awaits all Malaysians. Creative strategies when used correctly are the keys to lasting success. So, it is really up to PR to play the game correctly. If not, their dreams will go up in smoke and BN will be in power again.

*It has been more than half a year since I wrote on political issues. This post is a spontaneous response to the Malaysian Insider report because I was thinking of 'The Art of War' and how PR needs to use it in their strategies.

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 08:18 AM PDT

Program Sambutan Hari Belia Antarabangsa peringkat Selangor berjaya mendapat sambutan hebat dengan hampir 50,000 orang menghadiri majlis diadakan di Dataran Kemerdekaan Shah Alam di sini bermula dari pagi hingga lewat malam semalam.

Program tersebut dimulakan dengan pertandingan memasak bubur lambuk dan pertandingan catur Piala Menteri Besar serta yang lain dengan penampilan selebrtiti popular tanahair seperti Diana Amir, Yatt Hamzah, Ali XPDC, Abby Abadi, Faizal Tahir, Man Raja Lawak serta Penceramah Sejuta Umat, Ustaz Azhar Idrus.

Exco Adat Resam Melayu, Belia dan Sukan, Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi berkata, pihaknya berpuashati dengan sambutan diberikan kepada program itu yang mana ianya memberi gambaran ianya bertepatan dengan kehendak golongan muda di negeri Selangor.

"Saya berpuashati dengan usaha semua pihak terutamanya Penggerak Belia Tempatan (BT) di seluruh Selangor bagi menjayakan program ini. Program memasak bubur lambuk juga berjaya dengan lebih daripada sasaran yang kita tetapkan iaitu dari 100 meningkat kepada 121 penyertaan.

"Kehadiran malam ini (Program sesi soal jawab bersama Ustaz Azhar Idrus) cukup baik dengan kemunculan beberapa artis yang tampil berubah dan ini memberi kekuatan kepada golongan belia bagi mencontohinya," katanya kepada media selepas program tersebut berakhir semalam.

Program Sesi Soal Jawab Agama Bersama Ustaz Azhar Idrus turut disertai Man Raja Lawak, Faizal Tahir dan Abby Abadi mendapat sambutan yang mana ia berlangsung penuh lawak jenaka dan santai.

Dr Ahmad Yunus berkata, Kerajaan Negeri sesungguhnya mahu golongan anak muda atau belia turut serta dalam pembangunan negeri ini kerana anak muda mempunyai kekuatan dan pemikiran yang bernas.

Beliau berkata, menerusi program dijalankan itu menyaksikan gabungan Kerajaan Negeri dan anak muda berjaya menghasilkan satu kesan yang memberangsangkan.

Ustaz Azhar Idrus pula berkata, anak muda memang meminati hiburan dan sebagainya tetapi mereka ingin terlibat sama dalam program yang membawa kebaikan kepada diri mereka.

"Contohnya apa yang dibuat Kerajaan Negeri ini ada solat terawih, ada masak bubur lambuk dan yang lain, anak muda yang datang. Kalau program begini dibuat di kampung-kampung, orang tua saja yang datang. Kita boleh tengok sambutannya macam mana dengan berpuluh ribu yang hadir. Sewajarnya program ini kita teruskan. Kerajaan patut memberi keutamaan dan rakyat pula sokong," katanya. -selangorku

Sekali Lagi, "Tendangan" Kickdefella Mengena Diri Sendiri

Kickdefella mohon maaf kepada Ladang Rakyat

KOTA BHARU: Blogger mesra Umno, Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz memohon maaf kepada Perbadanan Kemajuan Ladang Rakyat di atas fakta-fakta yang silap dalam bukunya "Ladang Rakyat Ladang Airmata Rakyat".

Beliau yang juga pemilik blog Kickdefella turut bersetuju membayar sejumlah kos kepada plaintif.

Permohonan maaf tersebut dibuat di hadapan Hakim Datuk Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim dalam kamar di Mahkamah Tinggi Kota Bharu hari ini.

Ladang Rakyat diwakili peguam Azahir Surainie dan Azizan Ariff, manakala Aisha Mubarak mewakili defendan pertama. Pada prosiding hari ini Hafizulamin hadir bagi pihak plaintif.

Defendan kedua kes terbabit Wadah Bakat Sdn Bhd sebagai penerbit buku berkenaan.

Ladang Rakyat sebelum ini menyaman Syed Azidi dan Wadah Bakat Sdn Bhd kerana memaparkan fakta tidak tepat terhadap agensi berkenaan.

Sebelum ini isu berkaitan Ladang Rakyat sering diketengahkan media dan blogger pro Umno bagi menghodohkan kerajaan negeri.

Pernyataan mohon maaf itu antara lain menyebut kami, Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz dan Wadah Bakat Sdn Bhd secara rela hati dan terbuka memohon maaf kepada Perbadanan Ladang Rakyat di atas kesilapan fakta dalam buku "ladang Rakyat, Ladang Airmata Rakyat".

"Kami menyedari terdapat beberapa elemen yang tidak mempunyai fakta-fakta tepat terhadap Ladang Rakyat dalam buku tersebut. Dan segala kehakiman di dalam buku tersebut amatlah dikesali.

"Dengan ini kami bersetuju menghentikan pengedaran buku berkenaan dan sesungguhnya menyatakan maaf di atas fakta-fakta yang silap dalam buku tersebut yang telah menjatuhkan reputasi plaintif sebagai sebuah perbadanan milik kerajaan negeri," katanya.

Blogger terbabit dan Wadah Bakat Sdn Bhd juga memohon maaf kepada Ladang Rakyat di atas segala kesulitan yang timbul akibat penulisan dan penerbitan buku "Ladang Rakyat, Ladang Airmata Rakyat".

Peguam Hafizulamin berkata, atas persetujuan tersebut, saman yang dikenakan terhadap kedua-dua defendan ditarik balik.

Ulasan GB

Tepat seperti yang GB jangkakan sebelum ini. Nasihat GB supaya beliau menukar nicknamenya tidak mahu diindahkan.

Sebelum ini GB tulis:

p/s Dulu GB dah berpesan kepada para blogger, cari nickname tu biar elok sikit. Nickname tu sendiri sebenarnya boleh melambangkan perwatakan yang sebenar. Ia akan kembali kepada diri sendiri.

KICKDEFELLA - anda nak "kick" orang, berakhir nanti anda yang kena tendang, bukan sekali, malah bertubi-tubi selagi tak ubah nama itu. Dan apabila dah ubah nama, jangan lupa ubah sikap dan perangai. Itu lebih mustahak.



Bringing Myanmar killers to justice tops summit agenda

Bringing Myanmar killers to justice tops summit agenda

DAMMAM: SIRAJ WAHAB Sunday 12 August 2012

The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar is one of the key issues to be discussed at the Islamic solidarity summit convened by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah in Makkah on Aug. 14-15.
With just two days to go for the conclave of the world's most important Muslim leaders in the most holy city, pressure is mounting on Myanmar's military junta to allow international and Islamic relief agencies access to the besieged Muslim population of the Arakan province.


Two important delegations to Myanmar — one led by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and the other by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — this week have revealed signs of panic and desperation among the junta's top leadership.
"They have been caught out and have now realized that what they have done to Rohingya Muslims constitutes a war crime," one of the diplomats at the Jeddah-based OIC told Arab News.
"There is no doubt that the state was and possibly still is involved in the planned pogrom of Arakan Muslims, and they are now trying to reach out to the Muslim world to lessen the impact of the expected robust and unified Muslim response at the Makkah summit," he said.
Besides Davutoglu, the Turkish delegation included Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's wife Emine and daughter Sumeyye. The delegation called on Myanmar President U Thein Sein and Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin and visited Rohingya Muslims staying in the Banduba refugee camp where more than 8,500 Rohingya Muslims have taken shelter.
The delegates received a first-hand account of what exactly happened to the Rohingya Muslims. They talked to a number of victims, and at one point, according to reports in the Turkish media, the prime minister's wife was reduced to tears while listening an account being recounted by an affected Rohingya Muslim woman.
Davutoglu later told journalists that he would present his findings to the Muslim leaders at the Makkah summit. His findings will hold the key to the future course of action from the Muslim world at the summit.
According to a top Jeddah-based diplomat, there are a number of measures that the Muslim world can think of against Myanmar.
"We can haul the country's top military leadership, including President Thein Sein and the Arakan provincial head, to the International Court of Justice in The Hague and try them like Solobodan Milosevic and other Serbian leadership," he said. "Among the other viable options are that of approaching the UN Security Council and UN Human Rights Council."
The diplomat also hinted at pressurizing and persuading the world's leading powers to constitute an international peace-keeping force to save the Rohingya Muslims from being obliterated and uprooted from their historic homeland.
The OIC delegation to Myanmar was headed by former Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla. Among others, it included OIC Assistant Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Atta Manan Bakhiet and presidents of the Qatari Red Crescent and Kuwaiti International Humanitarian Commission.
The OIC delegates conveyed to President Thein Sein of the outrage in the Muslim world at the deplorable humanitarian conditions in the Arakan province of Myanmar.
The delegation asked for access to Muslim humanitarian organizations to provide emergency aid to inhabitants of the worst-hit Arakan province "without any religious discrimination."
According to a press note issued by the OIC yesterday, Myanmar president welcomed the OIC delegation and stated that that what had happened was not a direct result of religious differences. Instead, he blamed the massacre on what he called as "social problems between various ethnicities in the province."
Thein Sein pointed out to the OIC delegates that the international media distorted the events and presented wrong information and exaggerated the killings.
"President Thein Sein stressed his eagerness for the Muslim world in particular to know the truth about what occurred in Arakan, and he mentioned that he had sent an invitation to OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu recently to visit Myanmar to observe the real situation in the affected province," said the OIC press note.
The president welcomed the OIC humanitarian delegation to Arakan and agreed to allow the OIC and its partner organizations to provide humanitarian aid to the province in an urgent manner and to open an office in the region in coordination with the central government in Yangon and the local authorities in the province.
He instructed the relevant ministries to sign an agreement with the OIC to complete the arrangements.



Rapist Noor Afizal SO lucky: #BrightFutureRapeOK

Public outrage as national bowler escapes jail for sex with minor

By Debra Chong,
Asst News Editor
August 12, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 12 — A 21-year-old national bowler who was let off with a RM25,000 bond instead of being jailed after he pleaded guilty to statutory rape has sparked a firestorm online over the court's message on sex with minors even as it raises questions about the Penal Code and other criminal laws.
Incensed Malaysians have taken to Twitter and Facebook in the past few days to vent their outrage against the judiciary after the Court of Appeal was reported to have reversed last Wednesday a High Court decision to jail tenpin bowling ace, Noor Afizal Azizan, for five years — suggesting that fame and a bright future is enough to ensure a convicted offender gets a ticket away from jail. On microblogging site, Twitter, criticism against the appellate court's decision grew so heated it spurred the creation of a hashtag movement — #BrightFutureRapeOK — on the subject.
"How 'bright a future' really?.....even if he brings back the olympics gold medal I'd still want justice be served," said a Twitter user who called herself Adibah Noor on her account, @adibahnoor.
"Malaysian rapist walks scot-free for being a national bowler. Why. Is. My. Country. So. Messed. Up," tweeted another cyber citizen identified as Davina Goh on her account, @duuuhvina.
"Justice gets bowled over #BrightFutureRapeOK," Irwan Abdul Rahman said on his account, @irwanargh.
They were responding to Court of Appeal President Tan Sri Raus Sharif who was reported by state news agency Bernama to have agreed with Noor Afizal's defence lawyer that public interest would not be served if the athlete was sent to jail as he had a bright future. The decision by the three-man panel — delivered last Wednesday — was unanimous.
The Court of Appeal had ruled to reinstate a Sessions Court sentence to bind over the athlete for good behaviour on a RM25,000 bond for five years after he pleaded guilty to raping the girl, then aged only 13, at a hotel in Ayer Keroh, Malacca at the time of the incident in 2009. Noor Afizal was reported to be 18 then.
Some commentors even took to branding Noor Afizal a paedophile-rapist as they slammed the judiciary for practicing double-standards and giving out what one tweeter suggested was a "licence" for an adult to have sex with a child.
"Whoaa, tuan haji Bright Future. Now that's 1 big licence to bonk a minor...hehehehe," said Ahmad Kerp on his Twitter account, @Mr_Kerp.
Statutory rape is when an adult man has sex with a girl under the age of 16, with or without her consent. It is punishable with a jail term of up to 20 years and whipping, as provided under section 375 of the Penal Code.
In Malaysia, a man is considered a full-fledged adult once he reaches 18 years of age and if he commits a crime, he will be judged as a grown-up and not a juvenile.
Child and women advocacy groups, however, appeared have mixed reactions over the issue.
Two children's rights groups, Childline Malaysia and Yayasan Chow Kit — among the first to slam the Court of Appeal decision — accused the judiciary of sending the wrong message to the public on child sex.
"With due respect to the experience and discretion of the judges, we are concerned that a non-custodial sentence handed down to an adult offender, would trivialise the severity of the crime of statutory rape, and the precedence this would set for adult offenders in current and future statutory rape cases.
"Furthermore, the ambiguity of the reported mitigating reason of the offender having a 'bright future' is worrying in the possibility that a child's right to protection and justice may be sacrificed, despite being a victim," they said in a joint-statement on Childline's Facebook page, a day after the Court of Appeal delivered its judgment.
They highlighted that a girl below 16 years old — the age of sexual consent — is not mature enough to make an informed decision about having sex, and requires the law to protect her against sexual predators.
Between 2006 and 2010, more than half a reported 16,159 rape cases involved girls below the age of consent, Childline said citing the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Some women groups said they were alarmed by the "light" sentence Noor Afizal was given.
"Our criminal justice system has failed our daughters and granddaughters when it trivializes an act of violence through the sentence that is meted out," said Lee Wei San, the senior programme officer in the All Women's Action  Society (AWAM) said in an emailed reply to The Malaysian Insider.
"It has a dehumanising effect which normalises sexual violence and justifies the use (or abuse) of power instead of addressing the needs of our daughters and granddaughters for respect, love and most of all, justice," she added.
Other women groups were more guarded in expressing outrage.
The Joint Action Group For Gender Equality (JAG), an umbrella body representing six women NGOs — Sisters In Islam (SIS), Women's Aid Organisation (WAO), AWAM, Women's Centre for Change, Penang (WCC), Perak Women for Women Society (PWW) and Persatuan Kesedaran Komuniti Selangor (EMPOWER) — merely urged the judges to clarify their reasoning in sentencing Noor Afizal.
The Malaysian Insider understands this is due to the rising rate of minors indulging in sex with their sometimes older partners, or as one women's rights activist said, colloquially — "Suka sama suka"to mean consensual sex.
"On the surface, the judgement appears to hint at the application of a double standard by implying that anyone with the right 'credentials' can commit a crime, and get away with a rap on the knuckles.
"Does it mean that an individual who is perceived to have no future would get a heavier sentence?" JAG said in a joint-statement last Friday as they asked clarify their judgment.
Lawyers told The Malaysian Insider that the court's decision that provoked such a public uproar is actually allowed in law and that it was commonly invoked by lawyers in defence of their clients who were first time offenders, even if it was not so commonly granted.
Criminal lawyer Sreekant Pillai said that even though section 376 of the Penal Code prescribes a mandatory jail sentence for those convicted of statutory rape, judges held a discretionary power under section 294(1) of the Criminal Procedure Code to release a first time offender on a probation of good behaviour if they decided there were certain mitigating factors.
"Section 294 is something that is being used by lawyers to defend their clients every day because it is available to them. It is a second chance section," Pillai said.
He added that the provision in the criminal law is not "an outright get-out-of-jail scott-free card" as it was not easily meted out and came with conditions.
Should the convicted offender be found guilty of another offence again within the probation period, he would immediately have to serve a jail sentence besides his bailor having to pay up the bond.
"Don't they deserve a second chance?" he asked.
Pillai said it was not so easy to criticise the Court of Appeal's decision as as they must have certain reasons to decide it was better to keep Noor Afizal out of prison than inside.
Civil liberties lawyer, Syahredzan Johan, echoed similar views.
He pointed out that the public should not be so quick to bay for blood and assume that the penalties for statutory rape was created to protect children.
"I would not be so fast to assume that the offence of statutory rape was formulated to protect children.
"Ponder this; a grown woman having sexual intercourse with a boy can never be guilty of statutory rape. How can it be said that this offence was designed to protect children?" he said.
Syahredzan said the recent case showed there was an urgency to relook Malaysia's archaic and narrow definition of rape under the law, and update the provisions based on current sensibilities.
"Oh definitely we need to relook at our rape laws, its outdated! Like how a husband can never commit rape on his wife. Or how statuory rape does does not cover a woman who has sexual intercourse with a child. Or how the law does not provide for what we call a 'young man's defence' as in the UK, where a young person who honestly thought the female partner was of age only to find out she's below 16.
"I would go further and say that we need to relook at our Penal Code offences again and review them," he told The Malaysian Insider in an email.


Incredibly 'Enlightening'

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 03:14 AM PDT

 If truth be told, I am lost in a world of my own, far far away from the maddening news. Pardon my ignornance but if not for Shadower who sent me the following article, I would not be aware of our state of *coughs* progress. Thanks, Shadower, for sharing this enlightening news. :-)

According to our wonderful national news agency, Bernama:

KANGAR: Malaysia has managed to build an impressive modern civilisation at a time when many countries are on the verge of recession, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin.

According to Muhyiddin, many countries, especially Islamic ones wished to make Malaysia a role model due to its achievements in various fields.

Speaking at a breaking of fast function with the leaders and people of Perlis at Dewan 2020 here yesterday, he said Malaysia's achievements were not just a matter of fate but due to the capability and intelligence of its leadership.

He said Malaysia has targetted to be the first developed Islamic country by 2020 and it will do so in the next eight years.

With the country's economic strength, Malaysians should not be faced with unemployment, as there were always opportunities, he said.

Unemployment only occurred when locals were choosy, which leaves such opportunities to foreign workers, he added.

"The country is expected to need 3.3 million human capital in the next eight years in various fields," he said.

He remarked that the government had always focused on the education sector and turned it into the people's right.

"Education is for everyone. For 55 years (since Independence), we have developed Malaysian society to become what it is today and one of the sector's success is the reduction of poverty," he said.

Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said the government was also in the midst of reviewing the education system so it could produce more human capital of quality.

During the function, Muhyiddin and his wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Rahman presented Ramadan aid to 1,900 single mothers and orphans.

The deputy prime minister also launched a book, titled 'Al-Hussain Mosque' authored by a group of writers led by Tan Sri Mohd Ariffin Yusuf, the generous donor who sponsored the construction of the mosque.

The mosque, which has become the new landmark of Kuala Perlis, is being managed by Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP).

Also present at the event was Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu. — Bernama

Murid Dicabul Guru Lebih Setahun Lalu

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 03:50 AM PDT

Kuala Lumpur – Rahsia kemurungan seorang murid perempuan berusia sembilan tahun terjawab apabila dia mendakwa dicabul guru lelaki sekolah itu sejak lebih setahun lalu.

Perbuatan itu terbongkar jam 5 petang Khamis lalu, apabila mangsa menceritakan kejadian itu kepada ibunya berusia lewat 30-an sebelum membuat laporan di Balai Polis Jalan Tun Razak, di sini.

Menurut sumber, mangsa mendakwa dicabul guru lelaki berusia 30-an itu sejak darjah dua.

"Guru lelaki itu dilaporkan memanggil mangsa datang dekat dengannya sebelum memegang alat sulitnya," katanya.

Sumber berkata, mangsa tidak berani menceritakan kejadian itu kepada sesiapa, termasuk keluarganya, kerana bimbang dimarahi guru terbabit.

"Sejak itu, mangsa dilaporkan sering murung dan takut pergi ke sekolah. "Namun tak tahan diperlakukan demikian, mangsa menceritakan kejadian itu kepada ibunya.

"Terkejut dengan pengakuan itu, ibu mangsa bergegas ke sekolah untuk mengadu kepada guru besar. Selepas siasatan dilakukan pihak pengurusan sekolah, guru terbabit mengakui melakukan perkara keji itu," katanya.

Mangsa kemudian tampil membuat laporan di balai polis untuk tindakan lanjut. -hm

Poster Hina Pemimpin Pembangkang Diedar Di Pontian

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 01:50 AM PDT

Pontian - Pertubuhan Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia, kawasan Pontian, kesal dengan tindakan tidak bertanggungjawab segelintir pihak yang didakwa mengedar poster gambar beberapa pemimpin tertinggi parti pembangkang dalam keadaan memalukan.

Penyelarasnya, Mohammad Saiful Amri Saifullah berkata, pengedaran poster yang menggunakan pelbagai kata-kata kesat terhadap pemimpin dan parti pembangkang turut dikesan dibuang di hadapan sebuah sekolah rendah di Benut, di sini.

Menurutnya, poster itu diedarkan di kawasan pekan kecil di Tampok, Ayer Baloi dan Benut, sejak awal pagi kelmarin.

Mohammad Saiful Amri mendakwa, kira-kira 300 poster dijumpai sepanjang kerja pembersihan dan pengutipan yang dijalankan bersama ahli pertubuhan.

Jelasnya, dia tidak menolak kemungkinan, jumlah poster yang dibuang mencecah angka ribuan memandangkan pihaknya masih menerima aduan daripada orang ramai dan ahli pertubuhan.

Tambahnya, poster berkenaan seperti menghina perjuangan parti pembangkang apabila secara terang-terangan mempermainkan gambar pemimpin tertinggi Pas dan Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Mursyidul Am Pas, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan beberapa pemimpin lain.

"Selain gambar, kata-kata kesat yang sungguh memalukan kepimpinan tertinggi Pas turut ditulis di poster berkenaan yang jelas menunjukkan kebiadaban pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab ini.

"Lebih memalukan, perkara ini terjadi pada Ramadan dan sanggup diedar di hadapan sekolah rendah," katanya kepada Sinar Harian, di Ayer Baloi, di sini, kelmarin.

Mohammad Saiful Amri berkata, poster berkenaan turut dicetak dalam saiz A4 atau seperti risalah bagi diedarkan dari rumah ke rumah di beberapa kampung dan kedai di kawasan pekan kecil, di sini.

Justeru, satu laporan polis di Balai Polis Ayer Baloi dibuat petang kelmarin, berhubung pengedaran poster itu.

"Kami mahu pihak berkuasa menjalankan siasatan mencari dalang pelaku pengedaran poster ini, memandangkan hal sebegini sudah terlalu kerap berlaku," katanya.

Menurutnya, perkara sama berlaku pada awal Januari lalu, tetapi ketika itu bilangan poster yang diedar tidak banyak berbanding yang terbaru ini.

Tegasnya, pihak yang mengedar poster ini perlu bertanggungjawab dan segera berhenti daripada melakukannya, kerana tindakan mereka jelas menunjukkan taktik politik kotor. -SH


A Most Unusual 'Hate' Letter

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 12:39 AM PDT

This is a 'hate' letter from a boy to a girl whose father does not like him and wants them to end their relationship.

Hence, te boy wrote this letter to the girlknowing that the girl's father will definitely read this letter...

However, before handing over the letter to the girl, the boy told the girl to "READ BETWEEN THE LINES", meaning - only read the lines with bold font So.. Please try reading it again! It's so smart and sweet... :)

1 "The great love that I have for you
2 is gone, and I find my dislike for you
3 grows every day. When I see you,
4 I do not even like your face;
5 the one thing that I want to do is to
6 look at other girls. I never wanted to
7 marry you. Our last conversation
8 was very boring and has not
9 made me look forward to seeing you again.
10 You think only of yourself.
11 If we were married, I know that I would find
12 life very difficult, and I would have no
13 pleasure in living with you. I have a heart
14 to give, but it is not something that
15 I want to give to you. No one is more
16 foolish and selfish than you, and you are not
17 able to care for me and help me.
18 I sincerely want you to understand that
19 I speak the truth. You will do me a favor
20 if you think this is the end. Do not try
21 to answer this. Your letters are full of
22 things that do not interest me. You have no
23 true love for me. Good-bye! Believe me,
24 I do not care for you. Please do not think that
25 I am still your boyfriend."

A bit corny but refreshing in a world where many do not really believe in true love. Would any reader care to share any of their love letters from days of old? :-) Have a nice day!

Tidak wujud istilah penggunaan 'kafir harbi' selagimana tidak tertegaknya sebuah pentadbiran negara Islam yang sebenar, tegas Datuk Dr Haron Din.

Dr Haron yang merupakan Timbalan Mursyidul Am PAS ketika dihubungi TVSelangor berkata, polemik itu perlu hentikan segera kerana ia ditakuti boleh mencetuskan suasana tidak tenteram dalam negara.

Ujar beliau definisi kafir harbi itu merujuk kepada golongan yang perlu diperangi oleh umat Islam.

Beliau juga mengingati agar mana-mana pihak yang mahu mengeluarkan kenyataan dan melabelkan sesuatu golongan itu agar berhati-hati serta berdasarkan hujah yang kukuh dalam menyampaikan pandangan.

"Kafir harbi ini merujuk kepada golongan yang perlu diperangi oleh orang Islam, saya menegaskan istilah kafir harbi ini hanya timbul dengan sendirinya apabila wujud sebuah pentadbiran negara Islam yang sebenar.

"Dalam konteks ini negara ini masih belum lagi memenuhi ciri-ciri sebuah negara Islam, justeru penggunaan istilah kafir harbi dan sebagainya tidak wujud," katanya.

Sementara itu, memetik laporan Malaysiakini, Timbalan Menteri Pengajian Tinggi, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah berkata tidak perlu mengisytiharkan haram kepada umat Islam untuk menyokong DAP kerana ia hanya berkaitan perbezaan pandangan dalam politik.

Katanya, ia hanya persoalan politik dan bukan berkaitan soal apa yang boleh atau tidak seperti dalam bidang kesalahan jenayah.

Sebelum ini, kenyataan Pengasas Pondok Geting, Tumpat, Kelantan, Abdullah Sa'amah, dipetik Utusan Malaysia menyatakan bahawa umat Islam haram menyokong DAP kerana ia menolak Islam dan tergolong dalam kafir harbi. -TVS








Tiling Job In Kerteh

Posted: 11 Aug 2012 10:08 PM PDT


 

It was the most inopportune time to do such a heavy job like tiling during the fasting month of Ramadhan. It was planned to be done earlier before the beginning of Ramadhan but due to the delay in completion of other job by the so called contractor, it had to be done during the fasting month itself.
My son in law Lokman had requested me to do the tiling job for his extended kitchen at his home in Kerteh, Terengganu. Since I love tiling job and the prospect of laying large 600 x 600 mm (approx 24 x 24 inc) tiles for the first time, made me accept the offer. I haven't worked on such tile size before and lacked the equipment as I only have 18 inches cutter that can cut tiles below 18 inches. I have checked around at the hardware shops and the cheapest model would cost me RM320.00. So I invested in a cheaper made in China Bossman marble cutter instead which costs only RM210 inclusive of a 4 inch disc blade. It should complement my Makita 6 inch circular saw that can be converted to a marble cutter by replacing the cutting disc to cut tiles. My earlier perception that there will not be much cutting needed since the large tiles will only be for the table tops, sides and pillars. How wrong I was as the table was only 22 inches wide and most pieces of the large tiles must be trimmed to 23 inches, the final width of the kitchen table top. As an advice to any home maker, please ensure that the kitchen table tops are designed for 24 inches and thus avoid lots of trimmings and cutting and save on man hours.
I went to Kerteh some three days before the beginning of the fasting month.

 The tools for the job.
All the necessary tools and some that maybe needed were brought along. Among the tools that I brought along are the Makita circular saw, the Bossman marble cutter, the mini jack hammer, a powerful masonry drill, the 18 inch tile cutter, an angled grinder, 2 lengths of 1 x 3 inches hollow aluminium bars and various small tools.

  The stack of tiles that I will be using.
 I had to wait for several days for other workers to complete the job or demolishing one wall of the house and concreting the floors of the extended area. At the last minute, my daughter decided to have a basinet near the dining area which requires some plumbing job for the water supply and outlet pipe. It required hacking and much dust was generated which spread all over the house despite a large plastic sheet was used as a screen.
While waiting for all these jobs to be done before I could proceed with my job, I spent time helping Lokman to paint up the outside walls of the extended kitchen.

  Balkis is always there to assist. 

  We let 5 years old Balkis to do whatever she could possibly do as a form of training.
 There were ample time for me to enjoy the company of Balkis whenever she isn't attending her kindergarten classes.


Balkis is enjoying herself watching cartoons on her mother's iPad.

Here she watches the cartoons on TV.
 When I told her to pose, these are the poses she gave me.




She is indeed a lively girl.





 Finally the floor was done. The plaster ceiling gang will move in next and they will take up another two days.



After the ceiling was done Lokman painted the ceiling.


 Finally I could start my tiling job. 330 mm square tiles (about 13 inches square) were used. Lokman got it cheap as it was on offer in Paka at RM1.50 each. The tiles were of good quality except for some with chipped sides which I had to watch out and hide them somewhere or use them as skirtings.


 When an area is done with the tilings, painting is immediately carried out. My daughter Azini too helped out.


Balkis is always there to help out.
  The biggest challenge is doing the table top for the kitchen cabinet which involved the use of the large 600 mm tiles. The place where the kitchen hob is to be placed requires cutting out a section of the tiles. My first try ended in a chipped piece and I had to do a new one. The other place that requires such cuttings was the place for the sink. Where no such cutouts were required, the job was a breeze.

The water filter was placed there temporarily as we could not do without it.

I had to invest in the bigger 24 inch cutter which cost me RM400 which I bought in Paka, Terengganu as non of the shops in Kerteh stock the cheaper models. They have the high end model of Eye brand from Japan which was offered at RM750 which is considered cheap compared to other places. Since I am not a professional tiler, the cheaper model should suffice.

 The table top and the splash walls were almost done.

My wife Fatthiyah helped out by filling the gaps with white cements where the white tiles were used.



 
  The dining table and refrigerator were moved to the new dining area.
The cabinet maker came to make the final measurement. They will only be moving in after Hari Raya as they have their hands full with orders.
Tiling job done. We celebrated by going to Bazaar Ramadan in Paka.

 The whole family at the Bazaar Ramadan.
 
 Nasi Arab was my choice. Lokman and me opted for Nasi Mandy with beef curry which cost RM7.00. I wanted one with mutton but they said mutton is too expensive.

 Colorful drinks.
 
 The crowd.
 
 Mohamad Faiq is currently my youngest grandchild. At 5 months old he had to be carried around.

 Close up of Mohamad Faiq.

 Chickens being grilled.

 Freshly grilled chicken. At this hour everything seems delicious.
 All the work was done and finally we headed for home. We took the yet to be completed Lebuhraya Pantai Timur joining it at the Bukit Besi Interchange after Dungun and exiting at the Kuala Trengganu Interchange. It was a smooth drive but driving during the fasting month made me sleepy. We stopped at a mosque along the way to freshen up. It was very risky and I almost fell asleep when I reached the district of Pasir Mas from Tanah Merah. The stop in Kg. Chekok to collect some durians which I have ordered via my cousin Aminah was a much needed break.
We reached home safe and sound and was very relieved to find our home intact even after a two weeks absence. Thank you Allah for the safe journey home.

My next tiling job will most probably be at my son Azuan's newly purchased home in Shah Alam. After that job, the investment on the new tools can be considered as recouped.


GAMBAR BERBICARA: Inkuiri Suhakam - Penggunaan Gas Pemedih Mata Secara Membabi Buta

Posted: 11 Aug 2012 10:25 PM PDT


Siasatan awam pihak Suhakam ke atas dakwaan pencabulan hak asasi manusia yang berlaku sebelum, semasa dan selepas perhimpunan aman Bersih 3.0 telah bermula sejak 5 Julai yang lalu.

Terdapat beberapa anggota polis dan FRU yang melepaskan tembakan gas pemedih mata secara terus terhadap orang awam walhal mereka sepatutnya melepaskan tembakan dari jarak yang selamat bagi membolehkan peserta bersurai.

Seorang saksi terpaksa menderita hilang penglihatan mata sebelah kiri akibat terkena kelongsong gas pemedih mata yang ditembak dari jarak dekat. Dia baru sahaja bergraduasi dan telah kehilangan pekerjaan pertama akibat kecederaan yang dialami.

Beberapa saksi lain menyatakan terlalu banyak gas pemedih mata dilepaskan di kawasan sempit yang dipenuhi orang awam menyebabkan mereka tidak mempunyai ruang untuk menyelamatkan diri. Diawal inkuiri, seorang saksi memberitahu panel siasatan bahawa dia telah terkena kelonsong gas pemedih mata di leher menyebabkan dia pengsan semasa kejadian.





RCI: Why for Sabah only?

Posted: 12 Aug 2012 05:19 AM PDT

Six months for the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to complete its fact-finding mission on immigrants in Sabah, as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in Kota Kinabalu yesterday.

I personally support the move. However, it is too short a duration when the size of Sabah, its complexity, the big number of immigrants and 'the hidden hands' are taken into account!

Yup! I doubt 6 months will suffice. We need at least a year or slightly more if we want to see results. Most importantly, we should learn from the failure of Home Ministry's 6P program in tabulating the right formula to address the issue of foreign workers in the country.


Furthermore, the RCI is a national issue and not confined to Sabah alone. The overflow of immigrants in Sabah to Sarawak and the Peninsula has gone unchecked for many years. For some reasons, our immigration law is partly to be blamed for its failure to detect and monitor their 'arrival'.

The law needs some amendments, notably to the bias provision which only imposes those from West Malaysia to the East be scrutinised while those traveling from Sabah and Sarawak to the Peninsula are allowed a free passage, just like going from Kuala Lumpur to Penang and Kota Bharu. Do we still need that 55 years after Merdeka?

That's why the immigrant issue must be taken into a larger perspective. It is a national issue unless the RCI is set up during the early 1990s before those in Sabah began flying to the Peninsula.

And in carrying out its duty, the RCI should also include a representative each from the Home Ministry, the MACC, the Indonesian and Philippines embassies and the media.

The names announced by Najib as members of the commission are heavyweights but not good enough as we need more help on the ground. Just like Umno, its grass root members know more about the problems downstairs than those at the top - and they can easily identify reasons why their branch and division heads are reluctant to feed the bosses with the true picture of the problems.

Why? This is where the MACC role is needed to twist the 'hidden hands' behind the immigrant issue.

Immigrant, whether they are legalised or not, is a big business. Over the years, those dealing with them made quick bucks by bringing them in and arranging for their visa, permit, etc. Human trading has become an industry to some. Hence, it is not wrong for other governments to label Malaysia as the transit for human trafficking.

The outsourcing license given to hundreds of agents during the late 1990s started it all. Our rapid economic growth and massive development had attributed to the problem too. As locals were not keen anymore to work in the plantation and manufacturing sectors, it left us to no choice but to import foreign workers.

This opened up the doors to job seekers from more than a dozen countries to move in to Malaysia. Those who entered the country legally with valid travel documents were then exploited by these agents who promised them jobs and awesome salary. At one time, the number of foreigners in the country surpassed the number of jobs.

It led to other 'opportunities'. Those who were supposed to uphold the law also saw the big bucks coming in to their purse by providing assistance to the agents, regardless of whether they submitted genuine or fake documents to legalise the foreigners. They punchline was always money - you scrub my back, I scrub yours!

And so, it went out of control. Not in Sabah alone but the whole nation is affected and infected by the trend. Some personnel at the Home Ministry, Human Resource Ministry, the Immigration Dept, the police, the National Registration Dept and other related agencies who didn't want to miss the boat, also jump onto the bandwagon.

The so-called foreign workers' business became so dirty that one could offer money to high-ranking politicians for letter of support and to influence the authorities approve any application to bring in more foreign workers. Money changed hands but more and more foreigners found themselves stranded without any job.

We also 'allowed' many foreigners to overstay and work longer than what was stipulated in the agreement. Some had stayed more than 10 years now and in some cases, more than 15 years which saw many of them grabbed the opportunity to become 'Malaysians'.

Many of their Malaysian-born kids are already reaching their teen age while some are over 30 years old. Those who came to Malaysia about 20 or 30 years ago are already retired, and together with their children, grandchildren and friends, they don't have proper document.

We can't call them Malaysians because they don't possess Malaysian ID. Neither are their kids nationals of any country. They are categorised as 'persona non grata', people without any citizenship status and are not wanted anywhere in the world.

However, they managed to get Malaysian identification card - as full citizen or PR - with the help of our corrupt NRD officers. Its so rampant in Sabah where more than one person hold similar ID number.

Whatever it is, we are human. We should treat them accordingly and give them proper assistance should they qualify. Those who 'pass' citizenship test should be considered ID cards or PR status. Flushing them out will not only expose them to a more difficult situation but will also make us inhumane.

I don't want to detail out the 6P problems but Najib and his deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who is Cabinet Committee chairman on Foreign Workers are aware of it.

We need a new logical formula in finding an amicable solution to the immigrant problems. No need to point finger at anybody as we need a concerted effort to solve it. As the RCI has yet to start its official duty, there is still time to look into positive recommendations and inputs.

The Mathematician, The Physicist and the Engineer

Posted: 11 Aug 2012 03:30 PM PDT

A school dance floor included a straight line down the middle dividing the floor in two equal halves. Boys were lined up against one wall and girls against the opposite wall, each facing the centre line.

They were instructed to advance in stages towards the centre line every ten seconds, where the distance from the person to the centre line at each stage is equal to one-half the distance at the past stage.

i.e.: If the starting distance from the wall to centre line was D, the progressive series of distances at t = 0, 10 seconds, 20 seconds...10n seconds to the centre line is (D, D/2, D/4, D/8, .....D/2n)

The question is, when will they meet at the middle?

The mathematician said that they would never meet.

The physicist said they would meet when time equals infinity.

The engineer said that in one minute they would be close enough for all practical purposes.
