I was born on the eight day of Chinese New Year... And for Hokkien, the eight day is a very important day. Yesterday was the 8th day of CNY. I woke up as early as 8am... And lazying on the bed until 9 something...
Since sister wanted to eat Bah Kut Teh (BKT). We decided to pay a visit to my cousin place in Shah Alam. My nephew brought us to the BKT @ bukit Raja Klang area. Near the i-city area.
After the BKT, we went to NSK a huge hypermarket (this will be another post - stay tune). Mom just bought a couple of vegetables and we left the place.
I gotta have another eating session at night after sending my parent to a Wedding Anniversary function @ Jaya 33. My sister, Bro-in-law and I met up my aunty for dinner. We pop over to the NEW PARIS. I bet whoever stay in klang valley should know this restaurant...

Seorang pelajar cina, Lim Jia Piau Edward, 10 tahun dan bersekolah di darjah empat Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SRKJ(C) Tanjong Karang yang telah dihantar oleh kedua ibubapanya untuk belajar di Sekolah Rendah Agama (SRA) Seri Desa Tanjong Karang sejak tahun lalu telah mendapat perhatian daripada Pegawai Penyelaras DUN Sungai Burong, Ustaz Mohamad Judi Sarjo.
Yang Dipertua (YDP) PAS Tanjong Karang itu telah turun sendiri ke sekolah berkenaan untuk bertemu sendiri dengan pelajar tersebut yang kini sedang belajar di darjah 2.
Saya rasa jarang, orang bukan beragama Islam, dihantar oleh kedua ibubapanya untuk belajar di SRA untuk mendalami matapelajaran Islam. Saya terharu dengan keberanian ibubapa pelajar tersebut yang berani menghantar anak mereka untuk belajar di sekolah berkenaan, katanya lagi.
Sepanjang saya bertugas sebagai pendidik sebelum bersara lebih setahun yang lalu, belum pernah orang bukan Islam dihantar oleh kedua ibubapanya untuk belajar di sekolah agama. Semoga dengan ini, Allah akan membukakan hidayah kepada kedua ibubapanya... katanya lagi yang juga merupakan bekas Guru Besar di SRA Bukit Belimbing dan telah bersara pada tahun 2011.
Saya telah menyemak sendiri bacaan fatihah dan doa-doa yang telah dihafal dan beliau dapat membaca dengan baik sebagaimana pelajar-pelajar beragama Islam yang lain, katanya lagi.
Sewaktu ditemui, bapanya Lim Bun Siang dan ibunya, Gan Huey Teng, yang mempunyai perniagaan sendiri di Tanjong Karang, mengakui memang berhasrat untuk menghantar sendiri anaknya untuk belajar di sekolah agama supaya anaknya itu dapat menguasai Bahasa Arab dan Jawi serta matapelajaran lain dengan baik. -sgburong

In Part 1, the Catholic Church in Sabah has exposed a covert ploy to convert under-aged students to Islam in Labuan and complained that non-Muslim students at the Labuan Matriculation College between 17 and 18 years old, "are constantly subjected to various forms of harassment, ridicule and pressure to change their religion."
What the bishops found out shocked them. Some teachers there were proselytising Christian students resulting in some converting to Islam. The called for full probe after which a strongly worded letter jointly signed by the four Catholic bishops of Sabah together with a report prepared by the Sabah Catholic Diocesan Centre was despatched to the highest levels with copies to Education Minister Muyhiddin Yasin, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister as well as two Sabahan Christian ministers, Bernard Dompok and Dr Maximus Ongkili, as well as to Murphy Pakiam, President of the Bishops' Conference of Malaysia.
More poignantly, the newly established Vatican Embassy in Malaysia known Apostolic Nunciature was also notified through its Charge' d'Affairs Monsignor Marek Zalewski. In their joint letter dated 5 October 2012, the four Bishops claimed that some lecturers at the Federal funded Labuan Matriculation College "are abusing their position as teachers/mentors by imposing their beliefs on (non-Muslim) students during classes and through the activities of the college. Some lecturers have made offensive remarks about Christianity with intent to hurt the religious feelings of the students." "In the light of the above, we trust that the college will uphold our constitutional rights as Malaysians and ensure that any infringement of the students' rights is stopped immediately," they added.
According those close to the case, the college has transferred a teacher identified by the students as one of those involved in the covert ploy has been transferred back to Peninsular Malaysia to placate the Catholic Church of Sabah. The matter came to light when on 16 July last year, the Catholic Church received information through Catholic students at the matriculation college that some of the Muslim lecturers there attempted to influence their faith and as a result several students have embraced Islam.
A full probe was conducted by the church and written evidence was gathered from the students. The college has 2,771 residential students from Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan of which half or some 1,232 are Christians, the rest being Muslims. There are also 77 Buddhist students there. The probe report said some Muslim lecturers disparaged Christianity, make comparison of Christianity with Islam, ridiculed (memalukan) Christian students, infused Islamic teachings during lessons even those which had nothing to do with the subject matter, and holding classes, activities and forums in suraus. When two Catholic teachers tried to intervene in the case of an Iban Catholic girl who had converted, she was advised by an ustaz to make a police report against them for harassment. She made two police reports and another was also made by another Muslim lecturer.
According to the probe report, the modus operandi of the covert ploy to convert Catholic students is to spot students who are weak in their faith and those from poor families. They also look out for students who do not attend church regularly as well as those from broken families. The two case cites in the report fit this profile. One is an Iban girl from a longhouse in Kanowit, an old Chinese trading post on the Rejang River, Borneo's second longest river. Her father is unemployed while her mother is a farmer. She has five other siblings. She converted to Islam when she reached 18 years of age and changed her name to a Muslim one.
I managed to speak to her mother through mobile phone. She said her daughter didn't ask them for permission to convert. She just told them when she came back wearing a tudung or the Muslim head covering. She said her daughter seldom went to church. Asked why she didn't intervene she replied, "Apa boleh buat." (What can we do). The other girl is a Melanau from Miri who converted she was just two months short of the legal age of 18. She asked both her parents to accompany her to the religious department to give their consent. Both didn't agree but went nevertheless to the department. I asked the father why he did that. "Tak tahu lah."(Don't know). He gave the same reply to my other questions or "dia suka" (she likes).
According to current issue of Catholic Sabah, the fortnightly newsletter of the Sabah Catholic Church, following the expose by the four bishops and publication of their letter, the education authorities responded by sending a senior delegation last month led by Dr Sariah Abdul Jalil from the Ministry of Education which included Sawan@ Rizal bin Amil, the director of the college and its deputy, Kamarudin Mansur, and five other key personnel from the college for a discussion with the Sabah Catholic Church to "thrash out certain issues." Subsequent to the meeting, the bishops were invited to submit a letter to Dr Sariah, outlining their complaint which she would include in her report to "higher authorities", the newsletter added.

Ditakdirkan Allah penulis dijemput hadir ke majlis wacana perpaduan ummah anjuran DBP pada 19 Februari 2013 dengan acara kemuncaknya ialah titah Diraja DYMM Dr.Raja Nazrin.
Apa yang ingin sangat penulis kongsikan maklumat kepada masyarakat di Malaysia ialah mengenai inti titah Diraja DYMM Raja Dr. Nazrin yang jujur dan berpandangan jauh dalam isu perpaduan ummah yang membabitkan UMNO dan PAS sebagai dua kuasa politik Melayu di negara ini.
Antara mesej titah baginda ialah;
i) PAS kini bukan lagi parti tok lebai dan guru pondok tapi parti yang dipimpin dan dianggotai oleh golongan ulamak, professional, teknokrat dan pelbagai kategori masyarakat yang kini berdiri sama tinggi dan duduk sama rendah dengan UMNO.
ii) Kehebatan PAS yang tidak ada pada UMNO ialah ketinggian peribadi pimpinan dan ahli-ahli PAS yang membudayakan hidup dengan masjid dan surau serta tazkirah dan syarahan agama dan tidak berpoya-poya.
iii) Kekuatan PAS sebagai wadah kepimpinan ummah kini setanding dengan UMNO dari segi kemampuan mentadbir Negara dan kedua-dua parti politik ini sama-sama mempunyai peluang menjadi juara ummah di Malaysia.
iv) Pendekatan kerjasama PAS dengan non muslim merupakan kemantangan pimpinan PAS dan merupakan strategi ampuh PAS dalam menyaingi UMNO khususnya dalam PRU 13.
v) Dalam menghadapi PRU 13 PAS dilihat lebih selesa kerana berada pada posisi offensive berbanding UMNO yang terpaksa defensive kerana dilingkari pelbagai isu kepimpinan, kronisme rasuah dan penyelewengan.
vi) UMNO dititahkan sebagai kurang berintegriti dalam menerajui pentadbiran negara kerana berlaku salah urus tadbir, kronisme, penyelewengan dan rasuah.
vii) UMNO dititah sebagai parti yang salah mendidik golongan muda yang kini diajar dan diasuh dengan budaya politik samseng yang mencemar demokrasi, menghakis keyakinan massa dan menjejaskan perpaduan di Negara ini.
viii) UMNO diititah telah melanggar dan membelakangi semangat perlembagaan persekutuan kerana menafikan prinsip dan tuntutan federalism atas negeri-negeri yang diperintah oleh pembangkang, walhal negeri-negeri tersebut di pilih oleh rakyat melalui demokrasi yang sah.
Berdasarkan mesej titah DYMM Raja Dr. Nazrin yang lahir dari kesucian hati baginda seperti senarai di atas, penulis mentafsirkan bahawa baginda DYMM Raja Dr.Nazrin menaruh keyakinan akan kemampuan PAS sebagai parti yang berpedomankan agama dalam mengurus Negara, memelihara dan memartabatkan ummah.
Justeru, maka kerapkali dalam titah baginda disebut PAS sebagai parti islam.
Selain itu, penulis mentafsirkan bahawa sikap dan pendirian PAS yang konsisten menolak kerjasama dengan UMNO serta membentuk wadah baru bersama PKR dan DAP adalah tindakan bijak, berpandangan jauh dan berada di atas landasan yang betul khususnya dalam menghadapi PRU 13. -HD

My set lunch - rice with ginger chicken and herbal soup.
Jaya Noodle House established in 1975 is "the first air-conditioned noodle house in PJ."
Well, read more here:
Monday June 9, 2008
By GEETHA KRISHNAN
MORE than three decades of sharing an address is bound to leave one with a tinge of nostalgia.
Jaya Noodle House founder and head chef Lai Kok Choy, however, has a more pragmatic approach in dealing with change. Believing that people should evolve with the times, he simply uprooted his restaurant of 33 years to make way for new development and moved to a different address.
"My dad was one of the pioneer group of tenants to set up shop in Jaya Shopping Centre, then known as the Jaya Supermarket, at Section 14, Petaling Jaya.
"He was also among the last few to move out after we were informed of plans to demolish the building and turn it into a lifestyle mall," Lai's youngest daughter Chelsea, 37, revealed at the Jaya Noodle House's new premises at Jaya One, PJ.
Nostalgic sight: The old orange-and-cream tables and chairs are still a fixture at the outlet.
The new Jaya Noodle House opened in February and conveniently overlooks Jalan 13/6, opposite the Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman's PJ campus. It nestles among eateries established at the Glutton's Row known as Wai Sek Kai.
When her father opened Jaya Noodle House in 1975 with three other partners, Chelsea was only four years old while her sisters, Bee Ling and Bee Kuan were seven and six, respectively. They now handle public relations, finance and kitchen operations.
A poultry supplier by trade, Lai went to Hong Kong to learn about the concept of a noodle house and returned to set up "the first air-conditioned noodle house in PJ."
He and his partners came up with a modest capital of RM5,000 each to start Jaya Noodle House but Lai bought over their shares two years later.
Still at it: Lai is still hard at work in the kitchen 33 years on.
"I decided to go with my instincts to stay put and abide by the management's decision to increase rental because Jaya had the Cold Storage Supermarket then and people would swing by the noodle house after grocery shopping.
"We stayed on till the eve of Chinese New Year this year because Cold Storage was still open and our regulars kept coming by," Lai said.
Initially, the noodle house had eight to nine items on its limited menu. An original copy is still available where a bowl of Abalone Noodles was then priced at RM3.80. The present menu offers over 70 dishes, including stalwarts like the Pig's Fore Shank Noodles, Steamed Duck with Salted Cabbage Soup, Stewed Beef Brisket Noodles and Yok Chuk Chicken Soup.
"Our local cook has been with us for over 20 years but my dad is still the best cook. He still makes the best Char Siew Noodles and we are grateful that his personal touch has remained throughout the years," Chelsea said while giving her father a fond glance.
The sprightly senior citizen turns 66 this year and has not thought about retiring.
"Your mind wanders when you have free time and I prefer to keep myself busy. I relax by working out at the Clark Hatch Fitness Centre at the Hilton Petaling Jaya," he said but Chelsea cheekily prodded him and said he also headed there for naps.
The warmth shared by father and daughters flows through the restaurant that has many regulars. One of the ways Jaya Noodle House has maintained its old customers is by retaining the old orange-and-cream chairs and tables.
Blast from the past: An old photograph of Lai standing in front of the old premises of the outlet at Jaya Supermarket, as it was then known.
"People are often unable to read our sign while driving by but glancing at the tables and chairs does the trick. Most of our customers are also senior citizens and Jaya One has ample ramps and parking facilities for the elderly and disabled," Chelsea explained.
The noodle house is the same size as before but has its own washrooms and was renovated at a cost of RM200,000 to include a new kitchen.
Rental is a cool RM25,000 monthly, a far cry from the RM2 per sq ft (0.09 sq m) Lai paid when he first opened at Jaya Supermarket.
When Lai opened there, only a handful of the lots were occupied. It is the same scenario in Jaya One with the Lai family poised once again for a new beginning.
JAYA NOODLE HOUSE (Non-halal) Lot 35-LG2, Block C, Jaya One, No 72A, Jalan University, Petaling Jaya (Tel:03-7954 2639). Business Hours: Daily, 10am to 10pm.

For Muslims of Myanmar Democratic Opposition forces are useless. Most of them are now acting like Racist Ultra-Nationalists. They are not in power yet. Even after getting power, no one has given any promise to the Muslims. Like Burmese saying, "Sauk Phyit Hma-Ta gar". If we support them, gov and military would incite more riots.
I understand that we should not put all our eggs in one basket and some of the Muslims must be in the opposition.
The above is my response to the posting below by my friend Mohammed Naeem in his FB>>>
လက္ေဝွ႔သမား ႏွစ္ေယာက္ ပြဲႀကီးပြဲေကာင္း တစ္ပြဲ ေလးႏွစ္တစ္ၾကိမ္ က်င္းပေနက် အတိုင္း ဒီႏွစ္လည္း က်င္းပမယ္ေပါ့ဗ်ာ။
ဒီႏွစ္ထူးျခားခ်က္က အႏုိင္ရတဲ့သူက ရြာလံုးကြ်တ္ မီးခိုးတိတ္ ေကြ်းမယ္ေပါ့။
ဒီလိုနဲ႔ ရြာထဲက ႏြားေတြ ကြ်ဲေတြ သိုးေတြ ဆိတ္ေတြ ေရာင္းခ်တဲ့ ရြာသားေတြဆီက ႏွစ္ဘက္စလံုးက လိုက္ဝယ္ၾကတာေပါ့။
အဲဒီလို လိုက္ဝယ္ရင္းနဲ႔ တစ္ေနရာေရာက္ေတာ့ ကြ်ဲေရာင္းတဲ့ ရြာသားတစ္ေယာက္က ဘယ္ၿပိဳင္ဘက္ကို သူ႕ကြ်ဲေတြ ေရာင္းရမွန္းမသိ ျဖစ္ေနတယ္။ တစ္ဘက္ကလည္း သူႏုိင္ရင္ ရြာလံုးကြ်တ္ ေကြ်းမွာမို႔လို႔ သူ႔ကိုေရာင္းသင့္တယ္ ေျပာသလို က်န္တစ္ေယာက္ကလည္း သူႏုိင္ရင္ ရြာမွာ ထမင္းရည္ေခ်ာင္းစီး အလွဴလုပ္မွာမို႔လို႔ သူ႕ကိုသာေရာင္းဖို႔ ေတာင္းဆိုျပန္ပါတယ္။
ကြ်ဲမ်ားပိုင္ရွင္ႏွင့္ လက္ေဝွ႕သမား ႏွစ္ေယာက္ရဲ႕ အျပန္အလွန္ေျပာေနတဲ့ စကားေတြကို နားေထာင္ေနတဲ့ ကြ်ဲေတြက ေတြးေနမွာကေတာ့
"ေၾသာ္ လူေတြ လူေတြ သူတို႔ ႏွစ္ေယာက္ထဲက ဘယ္သူပဲ ႏုိင္ႏုိင္ ငါတို႔ကေတာ့ ဟင္းျဖစ္မွာပါပဲကြာ"

Syang dibuat oleh Perdana Menteri dan timbalannya terhadap Mursyidul Am PAS dijawab oleh penceramah selebriti, Ustaz Azhar Idrus (gambar).
Beliau berkata, Tuan Guru Nik Aziz bukan kata penerima BR1M itu seperti haiwan tetapi menjadikan penerimanya seperti haiwan.
"Sebenarnya apa yang kita dengar dalam video clip bukan Tok Guru kata kepada penerima BR1M seperti haiwan, cuma Tok Guru kata orang yang memberikan BR1M tulah cuba menjadikan orang yang menerima seperti haiwan.
"Umpama bagi makan, lepas tu sembelih.
"Maknanya jahatnya orang nak bagi bantuan bila perlu sahaja, bila jauh dengan pilihanraya tak hulur pun bantuan," kata Ustaz Azhar dalam kuliahnya di Masjid Pengadang Baru dekat sini.
Beliau ditanya, "apa komen ustaz mengenai Tuan Guru Nik Aziz kata orang yang ambil BR1M ni seperti haiwan?"
Ini ekoran tuduhan Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan Tan Sri Muhyidin Yasin bahawa Tuan Guru Nik Aziz menganggap penerima BR1M ini haiwan.
Bagi Ustaz Azhar, ini semua punca mencari pembalahan, "Ni buah cari baloh."
Sehubungan dengan itu, beliau meminta semua pihak berhati-hati dengan sebarang laporan media.
"Jadi lening (sekarang ini) kene hati-hati lah banyak putar belit dan spin berita nak nak musim mengundi ni.
"Yang tak pernah nampak muka pun dan kerap masuk kampung dah. Tujuan ape? Nak tolong ke untuk kepentingan tertentu? "Jadi kene bijoklah, jangan percaya tanpa selidik," tegas penceramah bebas dari Terengganu yang sangat terkenal itu.
Baru-baru ini, Tuan Guru Nik Aziz berkata,
"Orang yang menawarkan (wang) kepada orang, (sama seperti) kalau kita panggil ayam nak suruh ayam datang dekat, kita tabur hampas kelapa, tabur padi.
"Kalau nak panggil lembu kita bubuh (bagi) jerami.Tapi kalau nak beri Islam, kita nak panggil ayam cakap nak ceramah, mana ayam datang, nak panggil lembu, mana datang.
"Jadi kalau kita beri barang kepada orang, beri RM10, RM50 (orang akan datang ambil).
"Ini bukan cara Islam, (cara) Islam ialah beri ilmu kepada manusia," kata Tuan Guru Nik Aziz.
Sementara itu, para pengguna laman sosial mula menyebarkan analogi mengenai kenyataan kedua-dua pemimpin Umno itu ketika mereka mengulas isu ini.
Berikut adalah analogi itu:
Seorang atok memarahi dua orang cucunya, Ali dan Abu yang suka bergaduh...
Atok: Korang ni macam anjing dengan kucing.. pantang jumpa asyik nak bergaduh..
Ali: Sampai hati atok cakap kami haiwan...
Abu: Ali! Itu peribahasa la samdol!

As we all know, legal disclaimers and warnings give alerts that may not be immediately obvious thereby limiting legal liability for mishaps. But, some statements really make you wonder... Take a look at the following list which someone sent me. I do not know if these actually exist and am posting them for laughs.
On a blanket from Taiwan - NOT TO BE USED AS PROTECTION FROM A TORNADO.
On a helmet mounted mirror used by US cyclists - REMEMBER, OBJECTS IN THE MIRROR ARE ACTUALLY BEHIND YOU.
On a Taiwanese shampoo - USE REPEATEDLY FOR SEVERE DAMAGE.
On the bottle-top of a (UK) flavored milk drink AFTER OPENING, KEEP UPRIGHT.
On a New Zealand insect spray - THIS PRODUCT NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS.
In a US guide to setting up a new computer - TO AVOID CONDENSATION FORMING, ALLOW THE BOXES TO WARM UP TO ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE OPENING. (Sensible, but the instruction was INSIDE the box.)
On a Japanese product used to relieve painful hemorrhoids LIE DOWN ON BED AND INSERT POSCOOL SLOWLY UP TO THE PROJECTED PORTION LIKE A SWORD-GUARD INTO ANAL DUCT. WHILE INSERTING POSCOOL FOR APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES, KEEP QUIET.
In some countries, on the bottom of Coke bottles - OPEN OTHER END.
On a packet of Sunmaid raisins - WHY NOT TRY TOSSING OVER YOUR FAVORITE BREAKFAST CEREAL?
On a Sears hairdryer - DO NOT USE WHILE SLEEPING.
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding - PRODUCT WILL BE HOT AFTER HEATING.
On a Japanese food processor - NOT TO BE USED FOR THE OTHER USE.

Nobody bothers to mention 9th Rangers, who actually pinpointed the location of the Al Maunah group. A sub unit of 9th Rangers, their Unit Combat Intelligence Squad under the command of Captain Abdullah made first contact. As they were broken up into 5 men patrols they were able to cover more ground. The 5 men team that made first contact was under the command of Sergeant Ukon. In that contact (fire fight) Sergeant Ukon was wounded. Captain Abdullah the commander of the UCIS Platoon, managed to extricate his wounded sergeant. He located the main force of Al Maunah. Contact report was sent to Battalion Headquarters. The Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Mundaw reported that incident to 2 Brigade Headquarters. The Brigade Commander, Brigadier General Aziz gave the orders to destroy Al Maunah.
When Lt Col Stephen Mundaw was directed to do so, he was thrilled and excited, he had the ooportunity to expose his young officers and young soldiers to the real thing. Since the CPM laid down the arms, they were only doing peace time soldiering. Which was training and operations aiding the police on illegals and other boring laid back duties. Whilst battle procedure (preparations for battle i.e reconnaissance, plans, issuance of ammo, orders, rehearsals, logistics plans, fire support plans etc) were being conducted, orders came from the higher ups in Mindef to stand down. No one remembers or mentions the role played by the 9th Battalion Royal Rangers. It is convenient to forget, so that others who do not deserve glory can covet and claim it.
From then onwards it was a drama between the Police and the Army as stated below. Personally, the Lahad Datuk incursion should be handled by the Military. Let there be the rule of law, when you hang Kampong folks from Malaysia with home made guns, I think we should destroy foreign heavily armed invaders instead of pussyfooting around and handling them with kid gloves - edit.
COMMENT Until today, there is not one honourable person who is prepared to take the responsibility for the lapse of security that resulted in the Lahad Datu standoff. Surely there must have been someone put in charge of the area, but has neglected his responsibilities. If Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is serious about protecting the sovereignty, security and safety of our country and the citizens, he would have caught hold of one or two of the ground commanders and relieved them of their command. Only then will the rakyat believe that the PM is not only in control but that he is on top of the situation and has his priorities right.
Since nothing of that sort is happening, we can only expect that, eventually, the blame will go to the lowest ranking soldiers, who will be accused of sleeping on the job and for failing to wake up their superiors. And also the constables who have failed to gather the intelligence before the intrusion for actions to be taken before the invaders landed. This was the position taken by our Najib himself, when he was interviewed at length by reporters from on July 9, 2000, after the Sauk incident.
When Najib was asked about the lapse of security at the 304 Army Camp that resulted in the arms heist by the Al-Maunah gang, his answer was that all the standing orders were already in place but the fault was on a few low-ranking soldiers who did not follow the instructions to the letter. When queried about the capabilities of the intelligence operators, Najib said the police should have gathered prior information about the Al-Maunah activities and if he had been told of the involvement of one army major in the group earlier, for instance, he would have taken some actions against the said major.
As the defence minister then, it was improper for Najib to stoop so low as to pick on the level of soldiers guarding the armoury to shift the blame to. He should have reprimanded severely the division commander, or at the very least the brigade commander, for failing to ensure that units under their command carried out their tasks jobs properly. In other words, Najib is telling the rakyat that he can take action against soldiers or police of the lowest rank only, but would not dare touch the generals or police chiefs.
'Dealing with armed enemies'
The citizens must surely remember how the people in the Klang Valley were terrified and lived in horror for almost two months, between May and June 1993, when the notorious Kalimuthu aka Bentong Kali went on a rampage, and with just one automatic pistol, a 9mm Sig Sauer. More than 200 police personnel (me included) were deployed to track him down and only managed to get Bentong Kali on June 29, 1993. And even then, only after he had already killed 16 people. If a person can inflict that many casualties using just one handgun, then we would rather not imagine the damage the Sulu militants in Lahad Datu can cause to our citizens with the firepower they brought along with them, as reported.
Najib himself admitted in that interview of July 2000 that he was nervousand could not sleep well when told about the arms heist at the 304 Army Camp. If he, as a defence minister then, could have such fearful feelings, then he cannot expect the citizens, especially those in Lahad Datu and the rest of the country, to be unafraid of their safety after knowing about the armed intrusion by a group of foreigners who are known to be seasoned fighters. It is the duty of the government of the day to provide the citizens with regular updates on these situations, similar to what was done during the operations against Bentong Kali and the Al-Maunah group, to name a few.
It would be wrong and irresponsible for the government to downplay the Lahad Datu intrusion or hide the truth from her own citizens, who might be caught off guard should any of the intruders slip through the cordon. Our sovereignty, our pride, our security and safety are being threatened and put under siege by hundreds of armed invaders and the prime minister is saying that the rakyat do not have the right to know? It is a sad and embarrassing situation that Malaysians are forced to depend on news and statements from President Benigno Aquino and the Malacanang spokesperson to get a better understanding of the actual state of security of our own country, instead of hearing it from our very own prime minister or home minister.
Is the PM being fair to the people in this regard? He should reassess his position. Why no military involvement? Malaysians are wondering, and many are asking, why the military appears to be sidelined instead of being mobilised to help solve the standoff, since the intrusion has become a national security issue and of public interest. My gut feeling tells me that Najib is worried that if the military is involved in this operation, it will develop into another "standoff" within the Lahad Datu standoff. This time, it will be between the police commanders and the army field commanders, who will be arguing over who is to be in-charge of the whole operation, who is to get the most media and TV coverage, who is to be cited as the hero at the end of the day and who is to be awarded another medal and title. This will be a more long drawn-out and complicated issue to settle than the actual standoff itself.
Seriously I am not trying to pull a fast one here. Neither is it my intention to belittle both the current police and military commanders or to embarrass anyone, dead or alive. I am still part of the big family, and so are my brother and in-laws, albeit all in retirement. This "standoff within a stand-off" did happen in real life, during the Bukit Jenalik, Sauk, incident. The question of who is the "real hero" in the surrender of those Al-Maunah arms raiders between, Lt-Gen Zaini Mohd Said and ASP Abdul Razak MohdYusof , has not been resolved fully until today, after almost 13 years.
As far as Najib is concerned, it's Zaini, who "single-handedly" brought the Al-Maunah arms heist and hostage standoff to a finish. Only God knows how he came to this conclusion. But as far as the former IGP Norian Mai and the police are concerned, the real hero is ASP Abdul Razak, who at the time of incident was a chief inspector based in with the General Operations Force in Ulu Kinta. According to the former IGP, it was Abdul Razak who, by continuously arguing "religion" with the Al-Maunah gang, managed to convince the group to lay down their arms. Even when Zaini, wgho was then army field commander, and GOF Commander SAC II Abdul Hadi Mahmud went in with the security forces, Abdul Razak was already there and trying to calm both parties to ensure that no confrontation took place.
I would suggest that in order to avoid complicating the already complicated Lahad Datu standoff, it is better to let IGP Ismail Omar finish his business and show us that he really knows what he is doing and keeping the citizens updated. Where's the rule of law? Without a doubt, what the Sulu armed intruders have done is waging war against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sabah, irrespective of whichever angle one looks at it. No one from the intruders should be allowed to get away scot free, under any circumstance. They must face the full weight of our laws as a deterrent to prevent others from following their footsteps.
We should not be afraid and should ignore any threats of retaliation from any quarter. After all, our people are already conditioned to threats of another "May 13" chaos taking place and still they can go about their business as usual. Our people have already accepted the fact that the chaos did take place and the threat of history repeating itself will always be there, that the threat will remain as a threat forever. They will cross the bridge when the time comes, if at all. The real losers are the hatemongers. What is before Najib now is an "Al-Maunah like standoff". I must say that Najib was quite hands-on during the Sauk incident. Now, the citizens who have always been under threats, some of which were incited on his own behalf, would be watching very closely how Najib handles the Lahad Datu standoff instead.
The rakyat can judge whether Najib's actions will be more or less, or less is more, as compared with the Al-Maunah standoff. If he does more, there will definitely be a backlash from certain quarters. If he does less, he will get more whacking from the rakyat. So, he had better find something in between... a "just nice" solution.
Good luck to the prime minister and we should wish him well. Malaysiakini

My sincere advice to Myanmar MOH and Government: Don't be too scared to send your staff especially post-graduate doctors and trained nurses in specific fields. If there is a G to G arrangement it is much easier to get a training post abroad. Take the necessary guarantee money or land titles as deposits. Just send as many junior experts for training abroad with G to G agreements.

There are many different types of stages in a conquest. The Army of the Sultanate of Sulu has just gained a foothold. From that foothold they expand. The Enemy should be evicted before it gets entrenched. The incompetents in the Dumno government have allowed that to happen. The Enemy who want our land would have time to work out the lay of the land. They would have knowledge on how to defend their foothold. Digging of trenches and fortifying them happens next, they will have arcs of fire marked, most likely interlocking arcs of fire if the Enemy is worth his salt. Improvised explosive devices, booby traps and panjis come next. You think our "elite" police force can handle that?
To attack an Enemy force of 10 you need a platoon of around 35 men. The attacker must be always 3 times the number. Of course with all the fire support available. Meaning mortars, artillery, FGA's and whatever else is in the arsenal. For the Invaders in Sabah you would need a battalion. The odds will always be stacked against the attack force, as our politicians have given them the time and space to dig in. Seriously we would not suffer any casualties had we taken action earlier, now expect heavy casualties.
The Philippines at one time was seriously contemplating taking Sabah by force, see the story below. What makes you think it would not attempt to do it again when they already have an invasion force in place? Especially so when Sabah is rich in resources unlike impoverished Mindanao - edit
By Alejandro Del Rosario | Posted on Feb. 23, 2013 from the Manila Standard Today A new dimension has been added to the tense situation unfolding in Sabah after Moro National Liberation Front leader Nur Misuari warned Malaysia not to harm our Muslim brothers or we might be forced to come to their aid Misuari's warning came after a deadline set by Malaysian security forces was to expire yesterday, Friday. It has been two weeks since followers of the Sultan of Sulu crossed over to occupy the coastal town of Lahad Datu.
Malaysian security forces are gearing to attack, but weighing the consequences of a siege. Many of these uninvited newcomers have relatives in Sabah who came the same way in outrigger boats across the waters. Though separated by the Sulu Sea, Sabah's porous coastal border has failed to stop the wave of newcomers from Mindanao. Somehow, the Sabah standoff has evoked memories of the 1968 Jabidah massacre.
For those too young to know about it, Jabidah was a secret military operation for the invasion of Sabah conceived by then President Ferdinand Marcos to assert the Philippine claim after talks with Malaysia failed. Sabah was handed over by the British to the Federation of Malaya despite protest by the Sultan of Sulu who claimed he never ceded Sabah to the British but merely leased it. Marcos well-laid plan to sow unrest and start a rebellion in Sabah went awry when disgruntled Muslim recruits conscripted for the operation under Maj. Eduardo Abdul Latif Martelino tried to leave Corregidor Island where the secret elite army was training. Fearing the special ops might be compromised, the deserters (the number ranged from 28 to 60) were executed. The case became known as the Corregidor/Jabidah Massacre. The code name of the project itself was Operation Merdeka (Freedom).
A spoiler named Benigno Aquino, Jr. got hold of the lone survivor, Jibin Arula, and exposed the covert operation and the massacre of the Muslim recruits. Arula recounted how the young recruits were taken to the island's airstrip and mowed down by machine gun fire. Although wounded, he jumped into the water and survived by clinging to a driftwood until Cavite fishermen rescued him. The Jabidah massacre, some historians say, triggered the decades-long Muslim insurgency against the Manila government. Marcos used the playbook of the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba during the time of US President John F. Kennedy. Jabidah never got off the ground after Ninoy blew its cover. The Bay of Pigs landing by the Cuban expeditionary force composed of exiles and rebels opposing Fidel Castro's communist regime failed and suffered heavy casualties.
The arrival of the Filipinos in the coastal town of Lahad Datu can hardly be called a military operation. Only a few of the estimated 300 invaders led by Sultan Jamalul Kiram III are reported to be armed. The intruders insist they have a right to stay in Sabah as it is their homeland. To some, the situation may seem more like a case of a landlord wanting to raise the paltry rent being paid by its Malaysian tenants. Rental receipts shown by the Sultan of Sulu may have strengthened the country's claim to Sabah. Why is Kuala Lumpur paying rent to the Sultan's heirs through the Malaysian Embassy in Manila if it believes the validity of its Sabah claim?
Instead of the promised peace, the GRP-MILF peace agreement is spawning a ripple of unrest in Mindanao. MNLF decried it had been left out in the negotiations, yet. Misuari's men were the ones who fought the Abu Sayyaf to free three foreign hostages while the MILF stepped aside. Did the government talk to the wrong party? Followers of the Sultan of Sulu also feel marginalized they may lose ancestral lands to the MILF. It looks too early for PNoy to be patting himself on the back and promoting chief government negotiator Marvic Leonen to the Supreme Court.
Senator Antonio Trillanes, a re-electionist candidate of the ruling Liberal Party, is asking the government to explain its policy on Sabah and its timid stance on the Lahad Datu standoff. The former military man has shown some spine that heâts not going to be an Aquino acolyte in the Senate. The President is in a bind since Malaysia, an ally in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, was the third party that helped broker the GRP-MILF agreement . Malaysia , the Philippines and Vietnam are together in the South China Sea territorial dispute against China.
The Aquino government is also working with Malaysia to bring back from Kota Kinabalu fugitive Manuel Amalilio who scammed Mindanao investors Aquino is under pressure to bring justice he himself had promised to Amalilio's many victims. But that, as they say, is another story.

When hundreds of armed foreigners "invaded" Sabah, our Police and Armed Forces pussy footed. Give water, hold negotiations, and even gentlemanly pleaded them to leave peacefully. Our Police treated them like VIPs.
Unarmed Bersih and Hindraf protesters (only armed with salt and water bottles ) are tear gassed and shot with chemically laced water cannons and some even attacked indiscriminately by dozens of policemen injuring dozens.
Looks like Police treats armed foreigners with tons of respect but civilian Malaysians are treated like enemies. Is the term bullying applicable ?
