[VIDEO] Amah Lambung Bayi Dipenjara 20 Tahun

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 09:02 AM PST


Kuantan – Amah warga Indonesia yang melambung seorang bayi berusia empat bulan Jumaat lalu, dijatuhi hukuman penjara 20 tahun penjara bagi dua pertuduhan Mahkamah Sesyen, hari ini.

Yuliana yang berusia 23 tahun dari Sukarame Acheh itu bagaimanapun dilihat sebak dan menitiskan air mata ketika diminta membuat rayuan sambil mengaku mempunyai dua anak selain tidak mampu membayar denda.

Mahkamah terpaksa menunggu beberapa saat sebelum mendengar rayuan tertuduh yang akhirnya berkata 'Saya takut'.

Hakim, Mohd Azhar Othman sebelum menjatuhkan hukuman menganggap perbuatan itu boleh menjejaskan keharmonian masyarakat dan mahkamah berpendapat hukuman setimpal perlu kerana kanak-kanak adalah pelapis generasi akan datang.

"Perbuatan kamu telah menyebabkan masyarakat menjadi takut dan tidak tenteram apabila meninggalkan anak kepada pembantu rumah," katanya.

Bagaimanapun Mohd Azhar memutuskan kedua-dua hukuman itu berjalan serentak dan dia hanya perlu menjalani hukuman penjara 15 tahun dari tarikh ditangkap.

Ketika sesi perbicaraan, satu tayangan rakaman kamera litar tertutup selama lebih tiga minit dipasang selain beberapa bukti bergambar yang ditunjukkan pihak pendakwaan.

Pendakwaan dilakukan Timbalan Pendakwaraya, Nor Azizah Mohamad yang meminta hukuman berat dijatuhkan kerana mempunyai unsur keganasan walaupun kesalahan itu kali pertama bagi tertuduh.

"Hukuman berat kepada tertuduh juga boleh memberi pengajaran kepada orang awam supaya tidak mengasari kanak-kanak sewenang-wenangnya," katanya.


Melalui pertuduhan pertama, Yuliana melakukan perbuatan menghempas dan melambung seorang bayi sebanyak sembilan kali dan dia mempunyai pengetahuan bahawa perbuatan itu boleh menyebabkan kematian.

Bayi terbabit, Mohamed Hareez Mohamed Zamri itu didapati mendapat kecederaan lengan kanan dan kaki kanan.

Yuliana didapati melakukan kesalahan di bawah Seksyen 307 (1) Kanun Keseksaan dan boleh dihukum di bawah seksyen yang sama.

Bagi pertuduhan kedua, Yuliana didapati melakukan menganiaya seorang bayi kira-kira jam 7.45 pagi di Lorong Bukit Setongkol sehingga menyebabkan kecederaan fizikal kepada bayi itu.

Dia melakukan kesalahan di bawah Seksyen 31(91) (a) Akta Kanak-kanak 2001 dan boleh dihukum di bawah Seksyen yang sama iaitu denda tidak lebih RM20,000 atau penjara selama tempoh tidak melebihi 10 tahun atau kedua-duanya sekali.

Mengikut fakta kes, pada 7.45 pagi pada hari kejadian, ibu bapa mangsa yang sedang bersarapan di sebuah kopitiam di sini terkejut apabila melihat bayi sulung mereka dilambung dan dihempas pembantu rumah melalui rakaman kamera litar tertutup di telefon bimbit bapa mangsa.

Ibu bayi itu, Nina Suraya Sulaiman, 24, terus menghubungi jiran supaya pergi menyelamatkan anaknya sebelum kedua-dua mereka bergegas pulang dan mendapati bayi itu menangis.

Bapa mangsa kemudiannya menghubungi polis dan tertuduh ditahan pada 9.15 pagi pada hari sama.-SH

Quit if you can't get Sulu invaders out, Hisham told by Susan Loone

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 07:04 AM PST

BN is cautious because there is are 'fixed deposits' of hundreds of thousands of Muslim Filipinos in Sabah who have been given Blue IC's and native status who placed the BN government in power. Any wrong move could jeopardize this 'fixed deposit' in the coming GE. Another political motive is that with this 'stand-off' BN can mobilize thousands of Armed Forces and Rela personnel to the so-called 'hot-spots' and act as vote-banks in PR strongholds -  edit. 

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has criticised the Home Ministry for its delay in resolving the "invasion" of Lahad Datu, Sabah, by an army linked to the Sulu sultan. Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein's latest remark that the invaders are "neither militants nor terrorists" was unacceptable, Lim said.

"If this is so, then why are they in (a village near) Lahad Datu (and) heavily armed? "If this had happened in Penang, I - as chief minister - would have asked for security assistance from the federal government to drive out or arrest the armed group." The group allegedly comprises some 100 followers of a sultan in the Philippines, who has claimed that Sabah was "leased" out to the Malaysian government.

Sultan Jamalul Kiram was quoted in an AFP report as saying that his men will remain in Sabah as it is their "home" Although Malaysian officials have claimed that the group is armed, Jamalul insisted that they are not. Despite the group's refusal to leave since their arrival on Feb 9, Malaysia has not been firm in its handling of the situation, Lim said.

"If Hishammuddin can't handle the situation immediately and send the armed group out of the country, he should resign," he added. "The government deported Australian Senator Nick Xenophon, who was unarmed. Here we have an armed group and nothing has been done so far."

Hishammuddin, who is currently in Sabah, has reportedly said that Malaysia is doing everything possible to ensure that stand-off is settled without bloodshed. Malaysiakini

Menifesto Rakyat : PR Lancar Perang Terhadap Umno-BN

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 07:04 AM PST


Pakatan Rakyat (PR) akan melancarkan menifesto kempen Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 (PRU-13) sekaligus mendahului Umno-BN yang sehingga kini masih gagal mengumumkan tarikh pilihan raya.

Dengan tema 'Pakatan Harapan Rakyat', menifesto ini dinamakan 'Menifesto Rakyat' menunjukkan PR sudah bersiap sedia melancarkan 'perang' terhadap Umno-BN dalam usaha merubah tampuk pemerintahan negara ke arah yang lebih baik.

Menifesto ini diluluskan oleh Majlis Presiden Pakatan Rakyat merupakan menifesto bersama ketiga-tiga parti yang mengandungi empat teras utama iaitu rakyat bersaudara, ekonomi rakyat, kesejahteraan rakyat dan kerajaan rakyat.

Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli dalam satu sidang media berkata Menifesto Rakyat ini menggabungkan kesemua dasar yang berlandaskan Dasar Bersama Pakatan Rakyat, Buku Jingga dan program-program khusus yang diumumkan melalui Belanjawan Pakatan Rakyat 2012 dan 2013.

"Jawatankuasa Dasar dan Menifesto PR yang dipertanggungjawabkan membangunkan Menifesto Rakyat juga meniliti dan mengambil pandangan dari memorandum dan cadangan yang disampaikan terus kepada pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat untuk digarab di dalam menifesto.

"Selain itu pelbagai rundingan diadakan dengan banyak pihak untuk memastikan kepentingan dan kebajikan setiap rakyat dititikberatkan di dalam Menifesto Rakyat.

"Pelancaran awal menifesto ini membuktikan komitmen PR untuk memastikan kempen PRU-13 bertumpu kepada persoalan rakyat dan dasar untuk melawan politik perkauman dan fitnah yang dibawa Umno-BN," katanya dalam sidang media di Ibu pejabat PKR.

Pelancaran ini akan dibuat pada Isnin, 25 Februari bertempat di Pusat Konvensyen Shah Alam (SACC) bermula jam 9 pagi.

Jelas Rafizi lagi, proses rundingan dan kajian berlangsung selama 18 bulan bermula September 2011 dan dibentangkan sebanyak dua kali di peringkat tertinggi Majlis Presiden Pakatan Rakyat.

Turut hadir sama dalam sidang media ini Ahli Parlimen Kuala Selangor, Dr Dzulkefli Ahmad selaku wakil PAS dan Ahli Parlimen Serdang, Teo Nie Ching yang mewakili DAP.

Sebelum itu, PKR melancarkan 'Institut Rakyat' yang bakal bertindak selaku kumpulan pemikir kajian dasar yang bebas – secara kewangan dan pengurusan – yang akan melengkap dan memyediakan sudut pandang yang seimbang kepada sayap pengurusan parti.

Naib Presiden PKR, Nurul Izzah Anwar menjelaskan, institut ini akan menawarkan nasihat bebas dan saranan dasar kepada parti, seiring wawasan Malaysia yang makmur dibawah perkembangan ekonomi yang mapan dan pembangunan yang selaras dengan keharmonian sosial, alam sekitar, etnik dan keagamaan.

Pelancaran kumpulan pemikir akan diadakan Khamis, 21 Februari ini, pada jam 3 petang di Hotel Empire Subang Jaya.

Bertemakan 'Menuju Malaysia Baru', pelancaran ini akan menampilkan ucapan dasar dari Ketua Umum PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim serta akan membentangkan kertas kerja pertamanya berjudul 'Mengangkat Pendapatan Boleh Guna' pada hari tersebut.

Halang Senator Australia Tapi Benar Syarikat Australia Bina Lynas

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 05:30 AM PST

Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih) kutuk pengusiran Senator bebas Australia, Nick Xenophon yang pada masa sama, kapitalis Lynas Corporation Ltd dari Australia dibenar buka loji radioaktif di Gebeng, Kuantan.

Ahli Jawatankuasa Pemandu Bersih, Datuk Dr Toh Kin Woon (gambar) berkata, tindakan Umno BN itu lambang sikap tidak profesional kerajaan untuk memulihkan integriti sistem dan proses pilihan raya Malaysia.

"Bersih 2.0 menjemput beliau bersama delegasinya ke Malaysia untuk meninjau sendiri proses pilihan raya di Malaysia berbanding sekadar mendengar pandangan dari satu pihak sahaja.

"Kehadiran Xenophon bukan untuk kepentingan Pakatan sahaja. Beliau bertindak sebagai pemerhati bebas dengan mendapatkan pandangan semua parti politik termasuk komponen BN," katanya pada sidang media di Dewan Himpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur Selangor hari ini.

Kin Woon berkata, pengusiran Xenophon disyaki mempunyai kaitan menjelang pilihan raya umum.

"Xenophon tidak patut diusir kerana beliau bukan pendatang haram dan memiliki dokumen sah untuk memasuki Malaysia," katanya.

Hadir sama, rakan sejawatnya, Maria Chin Abdullah; Pengarah Eksekutif Pusat Komunikasi Masyarakat (Komas), Arul Prakash dan Pengerusi Badan Bebas Pemantau Pilihan Raya Malaysia (Mafrel), Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh.

Sydney Morning Herald: Pengusiran Xenophon Bukti BN ‘Takut’ Kebebasan Demokrasi

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 04:22 AM PST


Pengusiran senator Australia Nick Xenophon minggu lalu menunjukkan pentadbiran Datuk Seri Najib Razak "takut" dengan rakyat Malaysia yang akhirnya mencapai kematangan untuk mencapai kebebasan demokrasi, kata akhbar Sydney Morning Herald hari ini.

Pengarah akhbar antarabangsa Peter Hartcher berkata kerajaan pimpinan Barisan Nasional (BN), walaupun memerintah lebih setengah abad, tetapi masih belum membawa negara ke arah demokrasi matang, dan takutkan pilihan raya bersih dan adil yang akan mengugat mereka memegang kuasa.

Beliau mengatakan peranan Xenophon sebagai pemerhati antarabangsa sistem pilihan raya Malaysia dan berkempen untuk pilihan raya adil, menyebabkan senator bebas itu diusir dari negara Sabtu lalu.

"Puncanya kerana beliau adalah pemerhati antarabangsa berkempen untuk pilihan raya adil dan bersih," kata Hartcher dalam komentarnya hari ini.

"Ini bukan ancaman keselamatan kepada Malaysia, tetapi ancaman ke atas parti yang memegang kuasa," katanya, dan mengulangi kenyataan ketua pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim: "Dalam pilihan raya adil dan bersih, saya pasti kita akan menang."

Xenophon secara terbuka mengkritik kerajaan BN kerana cara mereka mengawal perhimpunan menuntut pilihan raya adil dan bersih pada April melalui kumpulan Bersih 2.0, berkata menurut pemerhatiannya, beliau melihat polis menggunakan kuasa melampau untuk menamatkan apa yang dikatakan protes aman. -TMI


Bully-boy Malaysia immature and Australia's reaction so limp


Malaysia's decision to ban an Australian independent senator, Nick Xenophon, tells us a good deal about the state of its government, the world's longest-ruling outside the communist world, as it heads to an election. Australia's response tells us a few things about ourselves, too.

Before critiquing the ruling party, the party of Mahathir, now the party of Prime Minister Najib Razak, we should acknowledge that it knows a thing or two.

First, it's worked out how to hold power continuously for 56 years, ever since Britain granted Malaysia independence. That's a serious accomplishment.

Second, it hasn't done a bad job of running the economy. Malaysia's sharemarket was one of the best-performing in the world last year and the economy is growing about 4 to 5 per cent annually.

Malaysia is a pleasant, multi-racial country with the middle-income living standards that an average per capita GDP of $10,000 delivers, about the same as Turkey or Mexico.

So why is the government so afraid of Nick Xenophon? Why stop him at the airport with the confected explanation that he represents a threat to national security?

The reason is that he is an international observer campaigning in favour of a free and fair election. This is not a threat to Malaysia's national security, but it is a threat to the ruling party's grip on power. As the opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, told me some time ago: "In a fair and free election, I am absolutely sure we will win."

Xenophon says that his detention and deportation shows "a high level of paranoia". But is it paranoia, or does the ruling party really have something to fear at the election it must call by the end of April?

At the centre of the long success of the ruling party is racial politics.

The county had a history of communal violence; the coalition National Front or Barisan Nasional (BN) party addressed that problem because it was founded on the principle of power-sharing between racial groups, the Malay majority with the Chinese and Indian minorities.

This balance held in check the fear of racial violence on a communal scale. But another key concept in the long years of BN rule was that the native Malays were inferior. They may be numerically dominant, but they lacked the skills and abilities of the other races. "Deep within them," wrote Mahathir in his 1970 book The Malay Dilemma, "there is a conviction that no matter what they decide or do, things will continue to slip beyond their control; that slowly but surely they are becoming dispossessed in their own land. This is the Malay Dilemma."

How to address it? By granting the Malays special privileges, including guaranteed dominance of the public sector and automatic, unearned shares of national wealth. In short, affirmative action. "It should not be wrong," wrote Mahathir, "for the Malays to cling to a system which can elevate them to the status of other races, thus creating a more equitable society."

The system kept the peace, but one side-effect of such a long stasis was that the government's monopoly on power allowed it to wield a near-absolute control over the other arms of the state, including the courts.

Mahathir shocked the world when he demonstrated the way that he'd managed to compromise all parts of the system when he moved against his deputy and potential nominated successor, Anwar, by trumping up charges that he'd sodomised his aide and speechwriter. Anwar went to jail for six years.

This was supposed to discredit Anwar permanently. But after moving to the US, the aide who testified against him recanted. In the police cells he had been "brutalised to make a totally false confession", he said.

Anwar, freed, led a barnstorming campaign as the leader of the opposition. He delivered the BN government a terrible shock at the 2008 election - it lost its customary two-thirds majority of parliament.

And while the BN retained a big majority in the parliament, the actual voting figures show that the contest was much closer than it appeared. BN won 51.4 per cent of the votes while the greater opposition gained 48.6 per cent.

The BN is protected by a gerrymander which means that while some electorates have more than 100,000 voters, others have as few as 7000. It's also protected by other systemic factors including a restricted press - the opposition parties need government permission just to print their own newsletters.

These are some of the awkward facts that Xenophon, as part of a wider international observer group, pointed out in a report last year. That group reported that in its discussions with the secretary-general of BN, Adnan Mansor, he'd stressed the importance of "avoiding racial strife" in Malaysia. He had posed this question to the group: "Are our people mature for freedom?"

The Malaysian government is afraid not of an Australian senator but of this question. In particular, the Najib government is frightened that the answer might be "yes."

"The status quo message," says one of Anwar's MPs, Liew Chin-Tong, is "unlikely to have an impact on an almost Arab-spring demography: 48 per cent of Malaysia's population are below 25 years old and 70 per cent are below 40 years old."

Mahathir anticipated in The Malay Dilemma a day when Malaysia's race-based construct would be obsolete, when the people would assert that they were no longer primarily Malays or Chinese or Indians but Malaysians. But he is not ready for the possibility that today could be the day, or that the people are the ones who have to make that decision.

The very tame reaction of the Foreign Affairs Minister, Bob Carr, to Xenophon's detention that it was "sad" and "disappointing," displays the usual limpness of Australian governments in defending their citizens abroad.

But, above all, Malaysia's overreaction to Xenophon simply validates his point that it is not a mature democracy. This has been Carr's fig leaf to justify Australia's silence at Malaysia's lack of democratic freedom - that we have no place in criticising a mature democracy. The deportation of Xenophon is an implicit confession by the Najib government that Xenophon is right and Carr is wrong.

Malaysia's people deserve a free vote, and Australia should stand with them in calling for one.

Child Abuse – Amah Syaitan Lambung Bayi

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 01:42 AM PST

I think the whole of Malaysia have heard about the latest child abuse case involving an Indonesian maid. Maybe because Rafa is about the same age with the abused baby or maybe her devilish act is just beyond belief – I AM SO EMO ABOUT THIS!

The setan – Yuliana, 23 years old from Sukarame in Acheh, hurled, thrown and tossed the poor innocent baby, aged just 4 months like ROTI CANAI dough!!! I want to share with you the CCTV video here but this blog would be disgraced by it.

The syaitan maid took the baby by his limps and threw him on the floor 9 times! She even held him high over her head and threw him behind her back like a basket ball. Why setan?? Why???

Many speculated that she may be holding grudges against the baby's parents but can you believe she started working for them just ONE DAY before? What could the parents do in one day to piss her so much until she would attempt murder to their innocent baby? Gosh, how I wish I could also personally throw her like basket ball again and again sampai puas hati!

Apparently his mother caught the act on her CCTV feed to her cellphone, which genius, everyone with maids at home must have CCTV. She immediately rushed back home and rescued her son. The child suffered bruises but was fine until this morning when he was admitted to the hospital again when her parents realized that he was not moving the way he should even in his sleep. This saddened and angered me so much, I wanna hit the daylight out of that stupid maid! A four month old's bones are still soft and the shaking to his brain may impact him more than just bruises.

Well this is the devil from hell disguising as a woman.

amah lambung bayi

From the latest news, the maid who also has children of her own is sentenced to a total of 20 years' jail by the Sessions Court at Kuantan. She was charged under attempted murder and child abuse. But this is before the baby was sent back to hospital. If anything serious happen to him, my emo self hope she will be charged again and get more years baru padan muka! But then again, she would be lodging in a Malaysian prison makan tanggung berak cangkung on our tax money… setan betul!

I remember how Indonesians campaigned "ganyang Malaysia", burnt our flags etc after a maid abuse case by the employer but just look at what your maid does to our innocent child! HUghhh! May God help us all, protect us from crazy people like this Yuliana and yes, please make the baby well again! Amin!

Kenyataan Media: Tekanan Terhadap Forum Politik UM – Mana Transformasi Najib?

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 11:58 PM PST

Malaysiakini hari ini melaporkan bahawa pihak Universiti Malaya ditekan agar membatalkan forum pilihan raya yang sepatutnya turut membariskan ahli politik Pakatan dan BN.

Berita ini membuktikan slogan transformasi Perdana Menteri Najib Razak cumalah retorik kosong semata-mata.

Forum yang membincangkan sama ada Pakatan atau BN akan menang dalam pilihan raya akan datang ini dianjurkan oleh Pusat Kajian Demokrasi dan Pilihan Raya UM (UMCEDEL).

Pengarah UMCEDEL Mohammad Redzuan Othman memaklumkan bahawa beliau menerima SMS untuk membatalkan program tersebut, dan arahannya datang daripada Pejabat Perdana Menteri dan Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi.

Ketika pelbagai badan politik, NGO dan media mengadakan wacana-wacana yang segar di luar kampus, kampus menjadi lesu kerana pelbagai sekatan oleh UMNO-BN.

Forum ini diadakan juga pada hari ini tanpa penglibatan ahli politik. Ahli-ahli politik yang dijemput adalah Nurul Izzah Anwar dan Husam Musa daripada Pakatan dan Saifuddin Abdullah dan P Kamalanathan daripada BN.

Ironisnya Saifuddin Abdullah sendiri merupakan Timbalan Menteri Pengajian Tinggi yang turut dilantik oleh Perdana Menteri.

Najib selaku Perdana Menteri 'transformasi' yang turut melantik Saifuddin ke jawatan beliau harus tampil dengan jawapan mengenai insiden ini yang sekali lagi menjadi tamparan hebat kepada kebebasan akademik di universiti.

Queen – Under Pressure Lyrics

Queen – Under Pressure Lyrics

Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure – that burns a building
down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out
Pray tomorrow – gets me higher
Pressure on people – people on streets
She been around
Kicked my brains round the floor
These are the days it rains but it never pours
People on streets
People on streets
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out
Pray tomorrow – high higher
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed
and torn
Why – Ooooh
Insanity laughs under pressure we're
cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more
chance
Why can't we give love
Give love give love give love give love
Give love give love give love
Love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves

This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure

Deepak Minta Mahathir Bagitahu Najib Jangan Gigit Tangan Yang Suapnya

Posted: 19 Feb 2013 01:29 AM PST

Ahli perniagaan Deepak Jaikishan menyokong kenyataan Tun Dr Mahathir agar jangan menggigit tangan yang menyuap anda dengan meminta Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak agar jangan juga menggigit tangan yang merasuah anda.

"Tun Mahathir meminta peneroka Felda agar bersyukur dan jangan menggigit tangan yang menyuap mereka.

"Tun, tolong beri nasihat yang sama kepada (Datuk Seri) Najib dan (Datin Seri) Rosmah, yang mereka tidak sepatutnya menggigit mereka yang memberikan rasuah kepada mereka," kata Deepak bekas rakan perniagaan Rosmah hampir 10 tahun dalam kenyataannya kepada media hari ini.

Beliau mengulas kenyataan Mahathir kepada peneroka Felda agar jangan sesekali melupakan jasa kerajaan kepada mereka dengan meminta mereka 'jangan menggigit tangan yang menyuap mereka.

' Deepak sebelum ini mendakwa telah memberikan puluhan juta kepada rakan perniagaannya itu melalui projek yang mereka usahakan bersama.

Namun sejak kes Akuan Bersumpah P Balasubramaniam yang kedua, Deepak telah diketepikan dan diberikan pelbagai tekanan oleh rakannya.

Deepak juga meminta Najib tidak melupakan rakyat yang memberikan undi kepadanya selama ini.

"Juga yang memberikan undi kepada mereka kerana ia sangat berbahaya untuk berbuat demikian.

"Mereka boleh jadi hilang pekerjaan dan yang lebih teruknya berakhir di (penjara) Sungai Buluh," kata Deepak dalam kenyataannya kepada media.

Prakata dalam Terbitan Lembaga Rayuan Pulau Pinang

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 09:48 PM PST

Jilid Terbitan Kes Lembaga Rayuan Negeri Pulau Pinang ini merupakan satu usaha yang penting.

Siapa Sapu Duit Projek Hospital Baru Kuala Selangor?

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 10:10 PM PST


Pengumuman MP Tanjong Karang, Datuk Seri Noh Omar bahawa kawasannya akan mendapat hospital baru mengundang persoalan tentang projek hospital yang terbengkalai di Kuala Selangor 13 tahun lalu.

Ini kerana projek hospital di Kampung Sungai Terap, Kuala Selangor sepatutnya menjadi hospital kedua untuk penduduk-penduduk kawasan Tanjong Karang, Kuala Selangor dan Sabak Bernam.

Pada Jan 4, Selangorkini melaporkan bahawa projek hospital Kuala Selangor itu hanya tinggal papan tanda yang bertulis "Cadangan Tapak Hospital Kuala Selangor" yang terpacak di ladang kelapa sawit.

Penyelaras Dun Permatang, Yahya Saari berkata Noh tidak menjelaskan bagaimana peruntukan untuk projek hospital Kuala Selangor itu dibelanjakan.

Menurutnya, pengumuman Noh itu seumpama janji ulangan kepada penduduk.

"Kemanakah peruntukan sebelum ini disalurkan sehingga mengakibatkan rakyat perlu menunggu bertahun lamanya untuk mendapatkan hospital baru? "Sedangkan rancangan pembinaannya diumumkan dibawah Rancangan Malaysia Ke-8 pada 1998.

"Kalau sehingga pilihan raya kali ini (PRU-13), ianya sudah menjadi PRU yang keempat atau kelima.

"Ianya bukan janji baru. Yang kita persoalkan kemana perginya bajet dahulu disalurkan,"
katanya ketika dihubungi TVSelangor.

Dalam laporan media sebelum ini Noh menyatakan Kerajaan Persekutuan telah meluluskan "projek hospital baru" yang akan dibina di sebuah tapak seluas 60 ekar di Kampung Sungai Terap, Kuala Selangor.

Di dalam laporan Selangorkini Jan 4, projek hospital itu diluluskan di dalam Rancangan Malaysia ke-8 pada 1998

Muslims of Myanmar could accept ANY government if they stay away from practicing dirty religious-politics

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 07:39 PM PST

I never hate Buddhists or Buddhism or Rakhines or any Myanmar.
I can even accept any government; military dictator or U Thein Sein or Daw Suu or others as long as they don't play dirty politics on Muslims of Myanmar.

Just read this>

17/2/2013 မနက္က လက္ပံေတာင္း ေတာင္မွာအစိုးရ ရဲ႕ကလိမ္ က်မႈကို မေက်နပ္လို ့ လူထုအစည္းအေဝးႀကီး ျပဳလုပ္ပါတယ္။

အစိုးရ ဟာ ဒီကိစၥကို ဖုးံလႊမ္းသြားေအာင္ 17/ 2ေန ့လည္ 12နာရီ မွာ သာေကတ စာသင္ေက်ာင္းကို တိုက္ခိုက္ဖို ့ ခြင့္ျပဳခ့ဲပါတယ္။

Rakhine Rohingya conflict was started by hardliners in military/government when Daw Suu first time went to the west.

And this was continued by Rakhine Separatists for their Independence struggle against Bamas.


一位年輕女董事長的忠告

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 07:37 PM PST



  1. 一位年輕女董事長的忠告,不想窮下去就請看看!

    無論你是男人,還是女人,做人想成功,下面就是你必須要做到的

    1、這是個現實的社會,感情不能當飯吃,貧窮夫妻百事哀。不要相信電影裡的故事情節,那只是個供許多陌生人喧囂情感的場所。只有不理智和不現實的人才相信

    ... 2、給自己定目標,一年,兩年,五年,也許你出生不如別人好,通過努力,往往可以改變70%的命運。破罐子破摔只能和懦弱做朋友。

    3、朋友請你吃飯,不要覺得理所當然,請禮尚往來,否則你的名聲會越來越差。

    4、好朋友裡面,一定要培養出一個知己,不要以為你有多麼八面玲瓏,到處是朋友,最後真心對你的,只有一個,相信我。

    5、不要相信算卦星座命理,那是哄小朋友的,命運掌握在自己手中。坐在家裡等什麼房子,車子,還不如睡一覺做個好夢。

    6、不喜歡的人少接觸,但別在背後說壞話,說是非之人,必定是是非之人,謹記,禍從口出。

    7、少玩遊戲,這不是韓國,你打不出房子車子還有資本。可以有愛好,但要把握尺度,少玩農場,牧場,斗地主等一些高度吸引人思想的晉級遊戲,也許你的級別很高,但不代表你有多麼成功,反而會影響和占據你成功的時間。

    8、是人都有惰性,這是與生俱來的,但是我們後天可以改變這種惰性,因為有很多人正在改變。對於某種事物或是生意不要等別人做到了,我才想到。不要等別人已經賺到錢了,我才想去做。沒有人相信的是市場和機遇,大家都相信的叫做膨脹。

    9、知道自己要幹什麼,夜深人靜,問問自己,將來的打算,並朝著那個方向去實現。而不是無所事事和做一些無謂的事。

    10、出路出路,走出去了,總是會有路的。困難苦難,困在家裡就是難。

    《社會調查》普遍認為。

    11、作為女人,不要倚老賣老,認為事業跟自己沒關係,以為自己就是洗衣服,做飯,看孩子,那就是大錯特錯。

    12、做人,要做到;萬事孝為先,教童品之道,夫妻和諧美,幸福萬年長。但是這些不是拿來用嘴說說就能辦到的,解放初期年代要做到這些,需要付出很大的努力和辛苦,當今現實的社會需要你付出很大的金錢,聰明的人都知道這個道理。

    13、空閒時間不要經常上網做無聊的事和玩一些沒有意義的遊戲,讀點文學作品,學習一些經營流程,管理規範,國際時事,法律常識。這能保證你在任何聚會都有談資。

    14、寧可錯殺一千次來自各方面的信息,也不放過任何一個有可能成功的機會。只有這樣你才不會去買後悔藥。

    15、要做一件事,成功之前,沒有必要告訴其他人。成功之後不用你說,其他人都會知道的。這就是信息時代所帶來的效應

    16、頭髮,指甲,鬍子,打理好。社會是個排斥性的接受體,這個星球所需要的藝術家極其有限,請不要冒這個險,就算你留長頭髮比較好看,也要盡量給人乾淨的感覺。

    17、不要以為你是個男人,就不需要保養。至少飲食方面不能太隨便,多吃番茄,海產品,韭菜,香蕉,都是對男性健康有益處的食物。你要是看不到價值,我可以告訴你。至少你能把看病節約下來的錢給你的女人多買幾個化妝品.

    18、力求上進的人,不要總想著靠誰誰,人都是自私的,自己才是最靠得住的人。

    19、面對失敗,不要太計較,天將降大任於斯人也,必先苦其心志,勞其筋骨,餓起體膚……但要學會自責,找到原因,且改掉壞習慣。二十歲沒錢,那很正常;三十歲沒錢,可能是沒有好的家境,需要更大的努力;四十歲沒錢,只能自己找原因。窮人變成富人是可能的,而且很可能。窮人能窮一輩子,也是必然的,存在就是理由,只是有所選擇。

    20、每個人都有成功的機會!就看你給不給自己機會!

    21、記住,平均每天看電視超過三個小時以上的,一定都是那些月收入不超過五萬元的,如果你想要月收入超過五萬,請不要把時間浪費在電視上。同樣的道理,那些平均每天玩網路遊戲或聊天超過三個小時以上的,也都是那些月收入不超過五萬的。

    22、因為窮人很多,並且窮人沒有錢,所以,他們才會在網路上聊天抱怨,消磨時間。你有見過哪個企業老總或主管經理有事沒事經常在臉書裡閒聊的?

    23、這個世界,有這麼一小撮的人,打開報紙,是他們的消息,打開電視,是他們的消息,街頭巷尾,議論的是他們的消息,仿佛世界是為他們準備的,他們能夠呼風喚雨,無所不能。你的目標,應該是努力成為這一小撮人。

    24、如果,你真的愛你的爸媽,愛你的女朋友,就好好的去奮鬥,去拼搏吧,這樣,你才有能力,有經濟條件,有自由時間,去陪他們,去好好愛他們。

    25、這個社會,是快魚吃慢魚,而不是慢魚吃快魚。

    26、這個社會,是贏家通吃,輸者一無所有,社會,永遠都是只以成敗論英雄。

    27、如果你問周圍朋友,如果十個人,九個人說不知道,那麼,這是一個機遇,如果十個人,九個人都知道了,就是一個行業。

    28、任何一個行業,一個市場,都是先來的有肉吃,後來的湯都沒的喝。

    29、這個世界上,一流的人才,可以把三流項目做成二流或更好,但是,三流人才,會把一流項目,做的還不如三流。

    30、趁著年輕,多出去走走看看。讀萬卷書,不如行萬里路,行萬里路,不如閱人無數。

    31、與人交往的時候,多聽少說。這就是,上帝為什麼給我們一個嘴巴兩個耳朵的原因。

    32、記得,要做最後出牌的人,出讓別人覺得出其不意的牌,在他們以為你要輸掉的時候,這樣,你才能贏得牌局。

    33、不要裝大,對於裝大的人,最好的辦法就是,撿塊磚頭,悄悄跟上去,一下子從背後放倒他。

    34、不要隨便說髒話,這會讓別人覺得你沒涵養,不大願意和你交往。即使交往,也是敷衍。因為他內心認定你素質很差。

    35、想要抽煙的時候,先問下周圍的人可不可以,要學會尊重別人。少在女生面前耍酷抽煙,你不知道,其實她們內心很反感。

    36、買衣服的時候,要自己去挑,不要讓家人給你買,雖然你第一第二次買的都不怎麼樣,可是,你會慢慢有眼光的。

    37、要想進步,就只有吸取教訓,成功的經驗都是歪曲的,成功了,想怎麼說都可以,失敗者沒有發言權,可是,你可以通過他的事例反思,總結。教訓,不僅要從自己身上吸取,還要從別人身上吸取。

    38、學習,學習,再學習,有事沒事,去書店看看書,關於管理,金融,行銷,人際交往,未來趨勢等這些,你能獲得很多。這個社會競爭太激烈了,你不學習,就會被淘汰。中國2008底,有一百多萬大學生找不到工作。競爭這麼激烈,所以,一定要認識一點,大學畢業了,不是學習結束了,而是學習剛剛開始。還有,我個人推薦一個很好的視頻節目,《誰來一起午餐》。

    39、如果你不是歌手,不是畫家,也不是玩行為藝術的,那麼,請在平時注意你的衣著。現在這個社會,衣著能表現出你屬於哪一個群體,哪一個圈子。

    40、 一個年輕人,如果三年的時間裡,沒有任何想法,他這一生,就基本這個樣子,沒有多大改變了。

    41、 成功者就是膽識加魄力,曾經在火車上聽人談起過溫州人的成功,說了這麼三個字,"膽子大"。這其實,就是膽識,而拿得起,放得下,就是魄力。

    42、無論你以後是不是從事銷售部門,都看一下關於行銷的書籍。因為,生活中,你處處都是在向別人推銷展示你自己。

    43、平時的時候,多和你的朋友溝通交流一下,不要等到需要朋友的説明時,才想到要和他們聯繫,到了社會,你才會知道,能夠認識一個真正的朋友,有多難?

    44、如果你想知道自己將來的年收入如何。找你最經常來往的六個朋友,把他們的年收入加起來,除以六,就差不多是你的了。這個例子,可以充分的說明一點,物以類聚。

    45、給自己定一個五年的目標,然後,把它分解成一年一年,半年半年的,三個月的,一個月的。這樣,你才能找到自己的目標和方向。

    46、無論什麼時候,記住尊嚴這兩個字,做人是要有尊嚴,有原則,有底線的。否則,沒有人會尊重你。

    47、如果我只能送你一句忠告,那就是,這個世界上沒有免費的午餐,永遠不要走捷徑!

The two faces of Malaysia by Mariam Mokhtar

Posted: 18 Feb 2013 07:15 PM PST

Like a coin, Malaysia has two sides; the tourist experiences a tropical idyll, a shopping paradise and gastronomic delights, but the man in the street sees the obverse.

azlanIn the markets, housewives moan about the increasing prices of everyday food items, but at any Malaysian Airlines check-in counter in London, New York, Dubai or Sydney, one can see Malaysian officials and their spouses deposit box after box of shopping. It is alleged that they seldom pay excess baggage charges. To say that Malaysia is a nation in chaos is an understatement. Minister after minister shows levels of incompetency that any half-decent company would never permit. Who runs the country? Who is in charge? Is Malaysia like an air plane cruising on auto-pilot until it crashes when it runs out of fuel?

While ministers are busy playing politics, the country is going to ruin. In Sabah, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's 'Project M', made illegal immigrants instant citizens of Malaysia. Last week, more than 100 armed foreigners breezed in and occupied a village, without any resistance. Elsewhere in Malaysia, people of distinction, whose only weapons are truth and the tenets of justice and democracy, are harassed and discouraged from entering Malaysia, or are deported. These people include a French lawyer acting on behalf of Suaram, a British lawyer acting on behalf of Hindraf, Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand and Australian Senator Nick Xenophon.

Armed forces caught unawares 

The Malaysian navy boasts an impressive and expensive array of weaponry, including submarines and fast naval boats. Despite this, our armed forces were caught unawares by the militants. The Star reported that in a press conference, Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said, "These men are not terrorists." Most Malaysians think that when 100 armed rebels invade, they are terrorists, not friendly visitors.

NONEForeign Minister Anifah Aman, who bungled the recent controversial trip to Gaza by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, has maintained a low profile. With armed foreigners on their doorsteps, Malaysians, especially Sabahans, might be reassured by an official statement from Wisma Putra regarding this impasse.

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said we should leave the security forces to deal with the situation, "Let the authorities with the expertise and responsibility resolve it without bloodshed. If anyone is killed, then the government and authorities will stand accused." Hishammuddin's words sound hollow. If only he applied the same standards to his own police force when they attacked Bersih demonstrators, caused hundreds of deaths in police custody, indiscriminately shoot at people, including teenagers and women, or allegedly beat security guard C Sugumar to death.

Among Najib's list of skills is his prowess as a drummer in the Chinese lion dance. More notable is his economy with words, especially in critical situations. Has he become a Benedictine monk and taken a vow of silence? It is most alarming that he has said nothing about the rebel threat. Is he still licking his wounds, after the humiliations that he suffered in Penang at the Psy concert?

In Sabah last November, two men - the manager of an oil palm estate and his assistant - were kidnapped by armed men and taken to southern Philippines. As a result of this, marine patrols were increased, especially as there were rumours that armed militia from the Philippines were preparing to land in Lahad Datu. Days after this abduction, men armed with M16 rifles raided a fishing platform off Tawau and took away a 40kg bag of ikan bilis worth an estimated RM350. Were these men testing the capability of our security defences in the area? They were not challenged, so it is possible that several more men have slipped into the country between November 2012 and February 2013.

Could there be another more simple explanation for the Sabah incursion? Sabah intrusion not seen as a threat The armed forces and police see no threat in the 100 armed rebels and yet an Australian senator is perceived to be an "enemy of the state". A casual, almost complacent, "tidak apa" attitude has been adopted by our leaders. We are aware that BN is trying to divert our attention from the damaging revelations that have been unearthed by the Sabah Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI). It is generally true that reports from our intelligence services are good. How is it that they were caught unprepared in Sabah?

Could the real reason be another distraction? It is without doubt that BN will do its utmost to cheat in the coming general election. The lackadaisical attitude of our ministers and authorities suggests that BN is trying to portray Najib as the "hero" who saves the nation from an armed invasion. Is it an attempt to make Sabahans beholden to BN and so vote them in? Perhaps, Najib is going to use the armed rebels as an excuse to station several army units in Sabah and then cheat using the army votes and postal votes. In a worst case scenario, will Najib use the rebels as a ploy to declare emergency rule to delay the election and instil fear in Malaysians?

Najib appears clueless and is silent about the invasion. This might be a plot to embarrass him and show him as an inept leader, hatched by none other than Mahathir and those who are plotting to overthrow Najib. Do we really want to be ruled by a party that expends its energy on internecine wars rather than governing the country? We must vote for a party that will lead us, the country and all Malaysians, to peace and prosperity, and expel our enemies but not our friends. Malaysiakini
