Ramal BN kalah, Ketua Ekonomi Bank Islam digantung. KUALA LUMPUR: Kerana meramalkan Barisan Nasional (BN) akan kalah dalam pilihan raya umum nanti, Ketua Ekonomi Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (BIMB), Azrul Azwar Ahmad Tajuddin, digantung kerja.
Ekoran itu, pelbagai pihak menyifatkan tindakan itu sebagai zalim, "kerana betindak ke atas mereka yang berkata benar.
" Namun begitu, banyak pihak yakin, jiwa anak muda tidak goyah dengannya.
"Pasti ada ganjaran untuk si pemberani dan bercakap benar," komen Setiausaha Agung PKR, Saifudin Nasution Ismail.
Minggu lalu, Azrul Azwar ketika bercakap dalam satu seminar di Singapura, meramalkan BN akan kalah dalam PRU 13 nanti.
Beliau berkata, BN akan kalah tipis dalam pilihan raya yang dijangka sengit itu.
Azrul berkata, hasil kajian maklumat menggunakan data analisisnya mendapati BN hanya mampu memperolehi antara 97 ke 107 kerusi sahaja dalam pilihanraya umum akan datang, jauh jika dibandingkan dengan prestasi 140 kerusi yang dimenangi pada pilihanraya umum lalu.
Bagaimanapun, dengan keputusan hasil maklumat ini, Pakatan Rakyat juga hanya menang antara 115 ke 125 kerusi sahaja dan ia sesuatu yang tidak stabil dari segi ekonomi sesebuah negara.
Bank Islam Malaysia dalam kenyataannya 11 Januari lepas, menjarakkan diri dari ramalan ketua penganalisis ekonominya itu, dengan mengatakan "kami tidak terlibat dengan forum tersebut".
Dalam satu kenyataannya, pengarah urusan BIMB Datuk Seri Zukri Samat memberi komen tentang laporan The Straits Times Singapura itu berkata; "Kami kesal dengan laporan yang mengaitkan Bank Islam dengan pandangannya dan ramalannya, dan kami mahu laporan yang silap tersebut dibetulkan.
"Untuk pengetahuan anda, Bank Islam tidak terlibat dan tidak berkaitan dalam forum tersebut," kata Zukri dalam sebuah kenyataan dihantar ke The Straits Times.
Namun hari ini, Azrul Azwar digantung dari tugasnya sebagai Ketua Ekonomi BIMB.
PRU perlu dipercepatkan
Hujung Julai 2012, Azrul dilaporkan berkata, ekonomi dan pasaran akan memberi reaksi lebih baik seandainya pilihan raya diadakan dalam tempoh terdekat (pertengahan tahun 2012) berbanding ditangguhkan kepada tahun depan (2013).
Katanya, pandangan itu berdasarkan persekitaran dan ketidaktentuan ekonomi luaran dan dalaman.
Menurut beliau, pelbagai spekulasi mengenai tarikh pilihan raya telah menyebabkan ekonomi dan pasaran tidak boleh bergerak pada landasan yang betul.
Jelasnya, masalah itu dihadapi oleh syarikat-syarikat korporat kerana sukar untuk membuat keputusan dalam operasi dan hala tuju mereka.
"Meskipun ekonomi negara sekarang dalam keadaan baik tetapi keputusan tidak boleh dilakukan kerana sukar untuk menjangkakan apa yang akan berlaku dalam tempoh jangka pendek dan sederhana.
"Malah, ia juga menjejaskan aliran masuk pelaburan asing kerana mereka juga mahu satu kepastian dalam pelaburan yang dibuat.
"Justeru, kebanyakan korporat memang menyambut baik seandainya pilihan raya diadakan lebih cepat," ujarnya sebagaimana dilaporkan Utusan -HD
Sampai begitu takut dan terdesaknya UMNO BN!
Namun seperti yang GB utarakan sebelum ini... ciri-ciri kezaliman UMNO itu menunjukkan dengan jelas bahawa UMNO sedang menuju kebinasaan dan kehancuran!

In September 1942, Viktor Frankl, a prominent Jewish psychiatrist and neurologist in Vienna, was arrested and transported to a Nazi concentration camp with his wife and parents. Three years later, when his camp was liberated, most of his family, including his pregnant wife, had perished -- but he, prisoner number 119104, had lived.
As he saw in the camps, those who found meaning even in the most horrendous circumstances were far more resilient to suffering than those who did not. "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing," Frankl wrote in Man's Search for Meaning, "the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
Frankl worked as a therapist in the camps, and in his book, he gives the example of two suicidal inmates he encountered there. Like many others in the camps, these two men were hopeless and thought that there was nothing more to expect from life, nothing to live for. "In both cases," Frankl writes, "it was a question of getting them to realize that life was still expecting something from them; something in the future was expected of them." For one man, it was his young child, who was then living in a foreign country. For the other, a scientist, it was a series of books that he needed to finish. Frankl writes:
This uniqueness and singleness which distinguishes each individual and gives a meaning to his existence has a bearing on creative work as much as it does on human love. When the impossibility of replacing a person is realized, it allows the responsibility which a man has for his existence and its continuance to appear in all its magnitude. A man who becomes conscious of the responsibility he bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life. He knows the "why" for his existence, and will be able to bear almost any "how."
In 1991, the Library of Congress and Book-of-the-Month Club listed Man's Search for Meaning as one of the 10 most influential books in the United States. It has sold millions of copies worldwide. Now, over twenty years later, the book's ethos -- its emphasis on meaning, the value of suffering, and responsibility to something greater than the self -- seems to be at odds with our culture, which is more interested in the pursuit of individual happiness than in the search for meaning. "To the European," Frankl wrote, "it is a characteristic of the American culture that, again and again, one is commanded and ordered to 'be happy.' But happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue. One must have a reason to 'be happy.'"

THE plot has all the trappings of a B-grade movie: the murder of a glamorous Mongolian socialite amid allegations of high-level bribery, blackmail, betrayal and political cover-up.
But these are real-life events, and they could set back the chances of Malaysia's ruling coalition in an election that Prime Minister Najib Razak must call by midyear.
Mr Najib denies involvement but the allegations will not go away. The internet in Malaysia is running hot with allegations by a disaffected businessman, Deepak Jaikishan, who is well connected in the ruling United Malays National Organisation.
They relate in part to the alleged cover-up of the murder of 28-year-old Mongolian fashion model and translator Altantuya Shaariibuu in a patch of jungle in the Kuala Lumpur suburbs in 2006.
The second part of the controversy is driven by an inquiry in France into a complex money trail left by Malaysia's $US2 billion purchase of two French-Spanish built Scorpene submarines in 2002 while Mr Najib was defence minister.
Ms Shaariibuu worked as a translator in the latter stages of the deal negotiations.
The link between the two events is a Ferrari-driving businessman, Abdul Razak Baginda, one of Mr Najib's best friends and policy advisers, who was the director of the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre.
Mr Najib, who is preparing to contest his first election since being installed in power by his party in 2009, denies ever meeting Ms Shaariibuu or having any link with her. The government denies any wrongdoing in the submarine purchases.
But it was two of Mr Najib's bodyguards who dragged Ms Shaariibuu from a car, knocked her unconscious and shot her twice in the head on October 19, 2006, according to court testimony. She had begged for her life and apparently that of her unborn child.
The killers then wrapped her body in C4 plastic explosives obtained from the military and blew her up, ensuring the foetus was destroyed along with the identity of the father. For good measure, they erased her entry into Malaysia from immigration records.
The Scorpene submarine story has been tumbling out since 2002 when Mr Najib ordered them from French ship builder DCNS.
Two French investigating magistrates are looking into so-called ''commission'' payments of about $US160 million into companies reportedly set up by Mr Baginda. Documents have been seized from the DCNS offices in Paris.
Ms Shaariibuu, who spoke several languages, became Mr Baginda's lover after they had met in Hong Kong. Stunningly beautiful, she had been married to a popular Mongolian singer and to the son of a famous Mongolian fashion designer.
Ms Shaariibuu admitted in a letter found after her murder that she had been blackmailing Mr Baginda, who had jilted her after they had travelled through Asia and Europe together.
She reportedly had wanted a $US500,000 cut to remain silent about her knowledge of the deal.
Ms Shaariibuu was abducted outside Mr Baginda's house, where she was said to be causing a scene. Her murder was eventually uncovered following continued pressure from her well-connected family and the Mongolian embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
The two bodyguards were convicted of murder in 2009 but have claimed they are scapegoats and are appealing against death sentences. Pleading with a court not to execute him in February 2009, Sirul Azhar Umar described himself as a ''black sheep that has to be sacrificed'' to protect unnamed people.
''I have no reason to cause hurt, what's more to take the life of the victim in such a cruel manner,'' he said.
''I appeal to the court, which has the powers to determine if I live or die, not to sentence me so as to fulfil others' plans for me.''
A judge sensationally dropped an abetting a murder charge against Mr Baginda in 2008 before any evidence was heard and he is believed to be living in exile in Britain with his family.
Among several claims made by Mr Deepak - a carpet dealer - to opposition and independent websites are that he interceded to have a private detective change his 2008 sworn declaration that Mr Najib had had a sexual relationship with Ms Shaariibuu. The Prime Minister has repeatedly denied any relationship with Ms Shaariibuu, calling it a ''terrible lie''.
Often sensational claims and counter claims in the case have been barely reported in Malaysia's government-controlled mainstream media.
The Malaysian human rights non-government organisation SUARAM, whose approach to a magistrate in Paris in 2010 prompted the French investigation, has complained of official harassment.
But the claims are hot issues on opposition and independent websites, led by the Hong Kong-based Asia Sentinel online magazine, which published confidential files on the case last year and whose editor, John Berthelsen, has doggedly pursued the story for years.
Malaysia, with a population of 28 million, has an internet penetration of more than 62 per cent, one of the highest in south-east Asia.
Some commentators in Kuala Lumpur, including Wong Choon Mei writing in the Malaysia Chronicle, have speculated that 59-year-old Mr Najib could be forced from office before he gets to call the election. Jittery powerbrokers in UMNO fear that if he remains head of the coalition, they may lose to the opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, and his Pakatan Rakyat coalition.
There is infighting in UMNO, which has shared power in the country for more than 50 years, as the latest opinion polls show Mr Najib's approval rating has fallen to its lowest level in 16 months.
Wong wrote in the Chronicle on January 7 that UMNO watchers believed former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad had decided to throw his weight behind Deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin, and effect an 11th-hour change in leadership, although many have cautioned that such a move could boomerang and create even greater infighting.
But Mr Najib, the son of Malaysia's second prime minister, has emerged unscathed by the prosecution of his bodyguards and is publicly ignoring the French inquiry and Mr Deepak's claims as he presents himself as a reformist, abolishing several restrictive laws and implementing a program to bolster unity among ethnic groups.
Malaysia's economy has fared well and the country is considered by the Work Bank to be an attractive place to do business. On January 8, Mr Najib denied rumours he had suffered a minor stroke due to the pressure of the allegations by Mr Deepak, saying he is healthy. ''So don't listen to the blogs, please,'' he said.
Analysts say the election will be the strongest ever challenge to UMNO's rule. Mr Najib has called the coming election ''a defining point for the destiny of the people and country''.

Milosuam melaporkan: Blogger Umno dedah punggung muslimah diraba di Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat #KL112
SALAH seorang blogger obesiti United Malays No Otak, Umno mendedahkan bukti bergambar kononnya seorang muslimah telah diraba punggungnya di Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat #KL112 tempoh hari.
Gambar tersebut turut disebar oleh blogger-blogger Umno yang lain. Di atas ialah printscreen daripada blog milik blogger obesiti tersebut atau nama sebenarnya Salim Iskandar.
Kita sedia maklum isu lucah memang menjadi senjata United Malays No Otak, Umno untuk meraih sokongan rakyat. Maka ada sahaja isu lucah dimainkan, namun seperti biasa mereka kantoi.
Gambar tersebut sebenarnya langsung tiada kena mengena dengan Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat #KL112 yang berlangsung di ibu negara tempoh hari. Sebaliknya gambar yang dicedok dari salah sebuah website luar negara.
Gua rasa dah berpuluh kali gua kantoikan isu lucah bodoh guna gambar macam ni dimainkan oleh blogger United Malays No Otak, Umno tapi kalau dah namanya dajal mana pernah nak serik.
ReJaM© "Diorang ni kalau tak main isu lucah berkudis satu badan "
Blogger UMNO yang memang otaknya kuning akan sentiasa melakukan fitnah sedemikian rupa. Hukum kebbanaran dan keadilan akan berjalan. Semuga Allah kudungkan cepat tangan-tangan pereka fitnah yang melampaui batas itu atau apa-apa hukuman/peringatan dariMu sebagai pengajaran untuk rakan-rakan mereka yang lain. Amin Ya Allah...

On October 16, 1962, John F. Kennedy and his advisers were stunned to learn that the Soviet Union was, without provocation, installing nuclear-armed medium- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles in Cuba. With these offensive weapons, which represented a new and existential threat to America, Moscow significantly raised the ante in the nuclear rivalry between the superpowers—a gambit that forced the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear Armageddon.
On October 22, the president, with no other recourse, proclaimed in a televised address that his administration knew of the illegal missiles, and delivered an ultimatum insisting on their removal, announcing an American "quarantine" of Cuba to force compliance with his demands. While carefully avoiding provocative action and coolly calibrating each Soviet countermeasure, Kennedy and his lieutenants brooked no compromise; they held firm, despite Moscow's efforts to link a resolution to extrinsic issues and despite predictable Soviet blustering about American aggression and violation of international law. In the tense 13‑day crisis, the Americans and Soviets went eyeball-to-eyeball.
Thanks to the Kennedy administration's placid resolve and prudent crisis management—thanks to what Kennedy's special assistant Arthur Schlesinger Jr. characterized as the president's "combination of toughness and restraint, of will, nerve, and wisdom, so brilliantly controlled, so matchlessly calibrated, that [it] dazzled the world"—the Soviet leadership blinked: Moscow dismantled the missiles, and a cataclysm was averted.
Every sentence in the above paragraph describing the Cuban missile crisis is misleading or erroneous. But this was the rendition of events that the Kennedy administration fed to a credulous press; this was the history that the participants in Washington promulgated in their memoirs; and this is the story that has insinuated itself into the national memory—as the pundits' commentaries and media coverage marking the 50th anniversary of the crisis attested.

Alor Gajah - Seorang warga emas rugi kira-kira RM3,500 selepas tiga barangan kemas miliknya dilarikan seorang wanita yang menyamar sebagai wakil Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat (JKM) di Kampung Lendu Hilir, di sini, petang kelmarin.
Dalam kejadian jam 5 petang itu, mangsa, Che Rus Uda, 74, didatangi seorang wanita lingkungan usia 20-an yang memperkenalkan diri sebagai wakil JKM.
Menurutnya, ketika kejadian, dia yang tinggal sendirian sejak lebih 50 tahun lalu sedang menonton televisyen sebelum terdengar suara memberi salam berulang kali.
"Perbualan antara saya dengan wanita itu hanya dalam jarak jauh sebelum dia memaksa saya membuka pintu yang dikunci cucu yang keluar beberapa minit sebelum kejadian.
"Kemudian wanita yang memakai kemeja dan bertudung putih itu turun dari sebuah kereta menyatakan hendak melakukan pemeriksaan kesihatan sebelum mendesak saya membuka pintu rumah," katanya.
Che Rus berkata, selepas wanita itu masuk ke dalam rumahnya, dia diarahkan membuka semua barang kemas yang dipakainya dan berbaring untuk melakukan pemeriksaan.
"Walaupun dalam keadaan terpinga-pinga, saya buka juga gelang tangan, rantai leher dan anting-anting dan meletakkannya di atas lipatan baju di ruang tamu.
"Melihat keadaan saya yang tidak selesa berbaring di atas lantai, wanita itu mengarahkan saya masuk ke dalam bilik sebelum dia 'scan' seluruh badan dengan menggunakan telefon bimbitnya sahaja.
Kemudian dia keluar untuk menghubungi seseorang," katanya.
Dia berkata, selesai 'pemeriksaan', wanita itu menghalangnya daripada bangun dengan alasan dia akan pitam jika berjalan.
"Sepanjang dalam bilik saya berasa tidak sedap hati memikirkan barangan kemas yang ditinggalkan di ruang tamu dan terus keluar dari bilik sebaik terdengar pintu besi di beranda rumah seolah-olah ditolak seseorang.
"Selepas itu, saya terkejut apabila melihat kesemua barang kemas sudah hilang malah kelibat wanita itu juga tiada," katanya.
Katanya, sebelum kejadian, wanita berkenaan ada datang ke rumahnya, namun beredar selepas menyedari cucunya, Hussin Abu Hasan, 31, turut berada di rumah dan datang semula 30 minit kemudian.
"Saya difahamkan oleh jiran berdekatan, kereta dinaiki wanita itu sudah berlegar-legar di hadapan rumah saya kira-kira 30 minit sebelum kejadian itu," katanya.
Sementara itu, Ketua Polis Daerah, Superintendan Umar Ali Saifuddin Shaharuddin ketika dihubungi mengesahkan kejadian itu dan menasihatkan golongan warga emas khususnya supaya lebih berhati-hati.
"Warga emas atau individu yang tinggal sendirian di rumah dinasihatkan tidak mudah terpedaya dengan pujukan individu tidak dikenali dan kes berkenaan disiasat di bawah Seksyen 395 Kanun Keseksaan," katanya. -SH

Deepak: Saya hanya mahu dedah penyelewengan
Ahli perniagaan Deepak Jaikishan menafikan bahawa siri serangannya ke atas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak bermotifkan kepentingan peribadi.
Katanya, beliau melakukan pendedahan berkenaan secara ikhlas untuk mendedahkan penyelewengan kerajaan.
"Saya melakukannya untuk kepentingan awam; saya tiada apa-apa keuntungan daripada ini, Kesemuanya disokong oleh dokumen," katanya.
Beliau juga menafikan bahawa tindakan berkenaan dilakukannya untuk memeras ugut.
"Saya tidak diberikan apa-apa dan saya tidak meminta apa-apa sebagai balasan," katanya dalam wawancara dengan Malaysiakini pada hari Jumaat lalu.
Beliau seterusnya ditanya mengenai pengambilalihan syarikatnya, AstaCanggih Sdn Bhd oleh Lembaga Angkatan Tentera Malaysia dengan jumlah RM30 juta selepas beliau tidak putus-putus menyerang perdana menteri.
Menjawab persoalan itu, Deepak menunjukkan beberapa dokumen dan menegaskan bahawa beliau dipaksa untuk menerima urusniaga berkenaan untuk menutup mulutnya.
Satu daripada dokumen berkenaan, bertarikh 26 Disember menunjukkan bahawa Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri menjalankan siasatan ke atasnya di antara 2004 hingga 2009 berhubung isu mengelak bayaran cukai dan juga notis rampasan bertarikh 12 Disember, kata Deepak.
Tambahnya, beliau boleh memilih untuk menerima tawaran tersebut atau menderita akibat rampasan harta berkenaan.
Selain itu, beliau mendakwa bahawa LHDN turut menyerbu premisnya hampir tiga tahun lalu dan merampas dokumen daripadanya, yang menyebabkan beliau sukar untuk membuktikan kewangannya.
Pengambilalihan syarikat Deepak oleh LTAT diumumkan di Bursa Malaysia pada 27 November.
Deepak menegaskan bahawa beliau hanya mampu menampung kos dengan bayaran RM30 juta itu dan ia juga bermakna beliau tidak berjaya memperolehi tanah bernilai tinggi di Bukit Raja yang dijanjikan olehnya olehy Ketua Wanita Umno Selangor Datuk Raja Ropiaah Raja Abdullah.
"Tiada siapa tahu berapa malam saya tidak tidur disebabkan semua tekanan yang saya perlu hadapi.
"Jika ini adalah untuk kepentingan peribadi, saya tidak mahu melalui segala proses ini. Saya tidak fikir sesiapapun akan mahu laluinya," katanya. -mk
Banyak yang masih tersimpan di "peti rahsia". Rentetan dari kes Altantuya membawa kepada pendedahan penarikan-balik Akuan Bersumpah Bala dan isu Puspahanas - kesemuanya yang dlitupi dengan awan misteri perlu dibongkar habis-habisan.
Ia bukan sebagai "modal politik", tetapi kebenaran itu perlu diletakkan di tempatnya yang betul dan setiap pesalah perlu diheret ke muka pengadilan, withour fear or favor.
Apa yang jelas, Najib dan Rosmah masih membisu terhadap pendedahan Deepak. Sebab kebenaran akan semakin jelas dan nyata jika beliau berdua bersuara cuba menafikannya.

BN's Malaysia's PM DSN and PR's Opposition Leader DSAI...for kampong voters who are non partisan and will cast their votes for the sake of voting, they will scrutinize at the poster and that question of siapa lebih handsome will pop up..
Hello...small things do matter..
The face on the posters!
Make sure candidates for the PRU 13 send in their good photos for the printings of posters, banners and buntings etc.
I recall an old story of my ex when he hantar his photo to the Pej UMNO Pekan..
Almost everybody knows he's in DAP now..anyway, when he submitted his, the photo was really okay..siap bersongkok and memang walaupun dah tua, handsomelah jugak..ehhhemm!
Then when it was printed on the poster, sebelah specs sudah digelapkan sikit..as though mata sebelah juling..hehe..jahat betul musuh2 politik dia kat Pej UMNO Pekan..punah gambar orang!
Terkejut jugak tengok..sampai hati betul!
I suspect Y yang kerja kat Pej UMNO Pekan tu yang buat..tapi no proof laa, but dia memang benci giler kat kitaorang!
Luckily lah my ex still menang under Barisan Nasional.
Masa dalam dewan and the results were announced, I recalled Y lalu near me and sindir, and sambil tu jebek and smirking..
He said.."Ye laah wok!"
Hooi..kaya sungguh dia sekarang..padahal dulu mekanik cincai jer..sekarang komain..kaki main golf.
Komisyen sana sini...tukang kutip toll..berlagak betul!
Tok Najib kena screen people of this kind..boleh hilang precious votes angkara species macam ni!
Dah lama I have not stepped into Pej UMNO Pekan..
I don't know whether Y is still there or still alive for that matter.
Jangan nampak cheeky sudahlah..and jangan muka macam sombong..posing mesti ada gaya yang membuat sesiapa yang memandang hormat dan suka....muka mesti nampak berseri..^_^
Ladies pulak jangan over make-up..nanti pengundi wanita menyampah..men pun not necessarily suka kalau muka macam slut..honest!
Biar nampak kemas dan biasa saja..
Okay..just a tip for today..
And don't forget to smile like kerang busuk if necessary!
Gambar mesti jaga!
BN must line up the deretan of intelligent, hardworking, dynamic and humble-looking candidates.
Good Luck guys!
Voters can sniff watak candidates from the looks..so watch out!

Demurely dressed in a high-necked jumper on a chilly autumn day, the pretty 20-year-old brunette could be any university student.
But this photograph posted on Facebook shows Xi Mingze, the new 'princess' of China.As the cherished only daughter of China's new president Xi Jinping, Ms Xi, nicknamed Muzi, is being expensively educated in the US, where she has been enrolled under a pseudonym since 2010 at Harvard University, Massachusetts.
'She is a bookworm, very quiet and studious,' one of her acquaintances, a Chinese writer, told The Mail on Sunday last night.
Though she is said to be protected by bodyguards, she has shunned the party lifestyle of another Chinese 'princeling' at Harvard, Bo Guagua.
Mr Bo, whose mother Gu Kailai murdered British businessman Neil Heywood, was renowned at Oxford and Harvard as a playboy. His politician father, Bo Xilai, faces corruption charges.
In contrast, friends of Ms Xi say she devotes herself to her courses, which include political studies. She attended a discussion last spring about the political tumult convulsing China's Communist Party, where she reportedly listened 'intently' from the top row of the lecture hall.
Powerful: Xi Jinping became China's new leader last week
Flamboyant: Xi Mingze's mother Peng Liyuan is a well known singer
Her mother, a flamboyant People's Liberation Army singer, Peng Liyuan, 49, is Mr Xi's second wife.
Ms Xi was said to have been sent to America because her father is an admirer of Western culture.

Tuduhan Umno BN sebelum ini mengatakan para peniaga rugi apabila berlangsungnya perhimpunan aman anjuran Pakatan Rakyat sama sekali meleset.
Buktinya, pagi-pagi lagi kebanyakan premis restoran dan warung tepi jalan dipenuhi peserta Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat untuk bersarapan sebelum ke Stadium Merdeka.
Malah mereka juga turut menerima pelanggan di kalangan pemimpin.
Ia turut dialami Pengarah Komunikasi KEADILAN, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad yang menyambut ulang tahun kelahirannya hari itu ketika mahu bersarapan paginya.
"Roti canai dah habis bila kami sampai di gerai ni (Kelana Jaya). Gerai penuh dari pagi.
Himpunan aman tak buat peniaga rugi," tulisnya di twitter. -KD

"You say yes, I say no...you say high, I say low... I say hi, you say go go go...you say goodbye and I say hello...you say why and I say I don't know..." is part of The Beatles' song 'Hello, Goodbye', one of the hits during the 1970s.
I think it fits well in depicting Pakatan Rakyat's non-unison over some major issues, including the use of 'Allah' by Muslims and non-Muslims, PAS' hudud and the ban on women dancers to usher the Chinese New Year.
What a farce!
KUALA LUMPUR: PAS Syura Council has decided that the word "Allah" cannot be used to describe God in any non-Muslim publications.Looks like Nik Aziz refused to compromise with Penang CM Lim Guan Eng's Christmas message that the use of 'Allah' should be allowed among non-Muslim as a reference to God.
I wonder whether Lim himself uses 'Allah' in his daily prayers.
And in Kedah, non-Muslims expressed their shock over a State Government's ruling that adult women dancers are barred from any public performance during the festive CNY.
(In Kelantan recently, the social ruling imposed on non-Muslims met with heavy criticism from all quarters, including DAP and pro-Pakatan NGOs, on grounds that non-Muslims should be exempted from such regulations, and that is was against the basic individual rights).
ALOR STAR: The PAS-led Kedah government has threatened to interrupt a stage performance to usher in the Chinese New Year in adult women performers take part in the event.Since its going to be the Year of the Snake, let me suggest PAS to call in some snake-charmers to replace the women!
Pakatan Rakyat, amid avowing unity in organising street demonstrations which affected thousand or traders in Kuala Lumpur and other places, causing them millions of ringgit in losses, is still unable to find settlement to their teething problems.
So, how to rule Malaysia when PAS, DAP and PKR each takes different approach in solving matters like these? They will turn our Parliament into a monkeys cage!

Mengapa ada kanak-kanak di himpunan Najib?
Persatuan Progresif India Malaysia (Mipas) menyelar kerajaan kerana bertindak dwistandard dengan membenarkan anak kecil dan siswa hadir ke satu program bersama perdana menteri semalam, tetapi menghalang golongan berkenaan hadir di Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat di Stadium Merdeka.
Setiausaha agung Mipas S Barathidasan berkata acara perdana menteri di Semenyih semalam disertai kanak-kanak dan golongan pelajar.
Namun, polis mengumumkan untuk menyiasat penganjur berhubung kehadiran kanak-kanak di perhimpunan dihadiri 100,000 orang di stadium bersejarah itu semalam.
Beberapa universiti turut mengeluarkan larangan kepada siswa supaya tidak hadir ke perhimpunan di Kuala Lumpur itu.
"Mipas mempersoalkan kenyataan menteri pengajian tinggi yang tidak menggalakkan pelajar institusi pengajian tinggi daripada mengambil bahagian dalam perhimpunan ini.
"Pada masa sama, polis memberi amaran bahawa kanak-kanak tidak dibenarkan untuk mengambil bahagian dalam perhimpunan ini. Persoalannya mengapa wujud dwistandard seperti ini?
"Mengapa tiada larangan atau amaran daripada polis atau menteri pengajian tinggi, mengapa ada kanak-kanak dan pelajar dilihat di acara bertemu rakyat dengan Najib anjuran IPF (Parti Barisan Kemajuan India SeMalaysia) di Dataran Tesco di Semenyih?
"Secara asasnya, kedua-dua acara perhimpunan perhimpunan orang ramai," kata Barathidasan. -mk
Dah bagus dipuji-puji kerana berjaya mengawal keselamatan semasa #HKR 112, tiba-tiba polis buat kenyataan nak siasat penganjur.
Cukup tak senang mereka apabila perhimpunan itu berjalan aman.
Sekarang cari isu untuk memburukkan HKR 112 diantaranya konon ada perlanggaran ke atas syarat-syarat yang mereka kenakan terutama membawa kanak-kanak.
Bukankah perhimpunan itu aman, perhimpunan itu halal dan perhimpunan itu santai?
Bukankah tiada sebarang insiden yang tidak diiingini berlaku?
Di dalam program-program anjuran UMNO BN kenapa tiada larangan seperti itu?
Tindakan polis yang dwi standard itu amat menjelekkan. KPN perlu menjawab dan SUHAKAM perlu siasat PDRM mengapa wujudnya sikap dwi-standard ini!

DATELINE; THE CURVE, PETALING JAYA:

We got to try out some of their great mouth-watering pastries and cakes-to-die for during the afternoon.
However, not everything was fun and food
