Fantastic Facts And Fancies

Ale! Jangan marah la. Main-main je.

Over my morning coffee I was browsing the online news portals and found a gem. It's from the online version of The Star. The section, Other News & Views. I am sure that most of you have read about the so-called 'sightings' of the ghost of Teoh Beng Hock. Stories have been circulating the Net about how people have seen Teoh's spirit haunting the MACC building in Shah Alam. Anyway, there was a report in The China Press about this 'haunting'. Part of the English translation in The Star read...

The guard later went to the reception counter and saw Teoh’s spirit walking away. He later felt someone pulling his leg.

I fell off my chair when I read that. I was laughing so hard. Thank you to the editor or sub-ed who translated that. Proving that in Malaysia comedy (intentional or otherwise) is not the exclusive domain of politicians.

I don't trust any of the MCA flers.

Of all evil, make sure Liow did not win as it will make MCA a subsidiary of UMNO.

I hope OTK will dig up the dirt of PKFZ. He got nothing to lose.

I wonder whether this is the reason why our MACC Chief quits ?

Mmm ... ! Just being naughty for a Saturday morning.

For once, no 1Niamah !!!

If Paranormal Activity can be a box-office hit worldwide, I suppose our local film producers (David Teo, are you listening) can make a 'low-budget' reality horror movie at MACC office.

Afterall it is so well known in the world how the MACC is murdering victim at their premises.

FINA can sponsor the movie and make a big money whn it becomes a worlwide smash hits!

A chance for you to make a cameo appearance (as a Chinese, not japanese, OK?)

walking away and pulling his leg? there's more than 1 ghost there then.

k4kenny said...

Yeah right....if that's that case, no need to waste everybody's time and tax-payers' monies slugging it out in court. Just go to MACC building, to the spot where Teoh's spirit wandering around, call out to him AND ASK WHO IS THE KILLER(S)???

jejaka anggun said...

is it necessary to put a ghost story in a newspaper???

dont we have a better story to tell?

niakong said...

May Beng Hock's spirit scare the daylight out of his murderer(s).

And with that, hopefully the murderer(s) would repent and surrender themselves to the authority, before the spirit tortures them, slowly but surely, to death!!!

Evil deeds will come to no good end, murderers!!!

"He later felt someone pulling his leg."

This is such an exciting piece of news. I never knew pulling someone's leg also existed in the spiritual realm.

Coming down to earthly terms, have our legs been pulled in the whole TBH episode?

michael said...

This is no laughing matter, Uncle Teoh. Is this the reason why MACC chief retired prematurely?

Suci Dalam Debu said...

Pulling his leg...hahahahaha

Good one Patrick

I love for this story to be true anyway. Will he get justice from the court proceedings? Don't think so.

May he get his last revenge and then RIP...

Can I burn some paper knife or dagger for him?

Niakong said "May Beng Hock's spirit scare the daylight out of his murderer(s)."

For all we know TBH's perpetrators could be having sleepless nights and shitting in their pants already with TBH's spiritual disturbances!! But these are all not reported!

Pull Someone's Leg = to kid, fool, or trick someone.

With a country full of clowns what do you expect . News editors or at least some of them are part of the circus.Want to sell more news, must be funny maa!!!!

MyPocong said...

MACC chief must be peeing on his pants upon heariong such news.

For all you know he is on his way to Mecca to repent, just like our PM.

The Almighty will serve the murderer the punishment, may they not sleep in peace.

Momok said...

Abu Kassim Mohamed says he wanted to restore MACC credibility, which means he had openly admitted that the anti-graft agency's reputation is at its lowest ebb.

But as the deputy chief commissioner, Abu Kassim too was part of the team that brought public odium to MACC. So how is he going to restore the agency's credibility and change the negative public perception?

Don't tell me, he is going to pull up Rosmah Mansor and ask her about her alleged bribe to private eye Bala to disappear last year.

Nationalism to Islamism - the mind’s opium

This statement may be shocking. Generally speaking, people are indifferent when leaders speak of Islamic this and that. They have formed their own 'rational expectations'. They have already anticipated that they are just empty talks and therefore adjust their reception accordingly. This means they will say - ho hum, not again.

For example, when leaders speak about Islamic finance, does it solve financial woes? Does it help poor folks and struggling businesses get easy financing? More often it does not. But the person mooting the "Islamic' idea gets away winning brownie points.

So why do leaders have a penchant of adding affixes of Islamic to things? Because it lulls gullible Muslims and Malays into believing that just by adding this affix or prefix to the good or service we offer, we have a solution. Hence for example, to untangle the financial mess brought about by the subprime culture, we need to follow Islamic finance. In other words, it's the lack of Islam that is responsible for financial problems.

It's a raw deal for Islam these days. In Europe as pointed out by Farish Noor, everything bad there is attributable to Islamic influences. Anything associated with Islam now appears to be subjected to cultural cleansing. Hence people in Switzerland voted to ban the construction of minarets on mosques in order to stem the Islamization of that country.

Malaysiakini has this story of one Mohammed Fazdil bin Bahari, a pre-operative transsexual known as Fatine, who upon marrying a British man in a civil ceremony, was refused a permanent visa on technical grounds.

Immigration Department director-general Abdul Rahman Othman said that once deported to Malaysia, Fatine could be banned from travelling overseas for at least two years.

"The penalty imposed on Fatine may be more severe than the two-year passport issuance deferment as he has brought great shame upon us," he said.

Instead of being sympathetic with a distraught Malaysian in an immigration tangle, Abdul Rahman played god and maufactured this shame.

Abdul Rahman, you really want to know what SHAME is?

We should be ashamed that:

That 114 cases involving illegal funds transfer were detected from 2006 to 2009.

In March 2008, a wife of a senior minister transferred funds amounting to RM600,000 to Dubai. Between June and August 2008, a 'Tan Sri' transferred 3.5 million pounds sterling (RM22.2 million) to the United Kingdom.

Last week, Bank Negara confirmed that it is investigating Negeri’s MD Mohamad's alleged transfer of RM10 million to London.

Last week billions were siphoned off in Sarawak!

Shouldn't we be ashamed that:

630 Malaysians leave the country everyday!

304,358 Malaysians were reported to have migrated from March 2008 to August 2009.

You not ashamed of:

our shambled judiciary

our mounting crime rates

illegal immigrants galore in our midst

2000 over deaths in custody

There are too many things for us to be ashamed of, I am ashamed of these, are you?

The Bank Bumiputra twin scandals in the early 1980s saw US$1 billion (RM3.2 billion in 2008 ringgit) wasted;

The Maminco attempt to corner the world tin market in the 1980s is believed to have cost some US$500 million (RM1.6 billion);

Blue Mansion the movie was featured in The Star on Saturday.
Pat, you spotted white hair in the movie.
Will watch it if Msian Cinema does not censor the steamy scenes.
Fans of Pat, don't miss it !
It will give MySpy a stiff competition in the box office.
Definitely a better movie than Scenario Beach Boys.

I suggest the Star's editor, Datuk WCW should send his top reporter Jocelyn to the afterworld to interview TBH to find out if is is indeed true that TBH is haunting the 1MACC offices. Now that would really be pulling my leg!!!

May TBH rest in peace.

Anonymous said...

Jocelyn and Datuk WCW of The Star can go to MACC building to check up the situation.

They can also invite Awang Selamat of Utusan and Mamat of Berita Harian to go along. Prof KKK and Ridhuan Tee can go too if they still have the balls.

They will get the scoop of the century.

The most important asset of a country is not its natural resources, but rather human resources. This is especially true in a knowledge based economy, which of course will be the trend in future if not already the trend in most of the western countries.

My daughter, who is in her final year medicine in Auckland, told me that a team of Singapore recruitment officers have just visited Auckland and talked to the Malaysian students there, offering job and training prospect for the final year students once they graduate. My daughter also told me that over the last few years, quite a lot of her Malaysian seniors, after graduating from medical courses in NZ, have gone to Singapore to work as house-officers and subsequently stayed back in Singapore for their postgraduate training.

Similar teams are sent to Australia and UK for recruiting Malaysians there to work in Singapore.

About a year ago, in one of the articles in Reuters, this was reported:

Malaysia is counting on bright, ambitious people like Tan Chye Ling for its future, to lead it away from manufacturing and into the knowledge age.

But the 32-year-old scientist, a post-graduate in molecular biology, is not counting on Malaysia to look after her future.

‘I felt much suppressed in Malaysia,’ said Tan, who moved to neighboring Singapore, the region’s pace-setter for biotech investment, after a decade of study and research in Malaysia.

‘I have benefited from the better research environment and salary scheme here. Things are much smoother,’ she said by phone from the National University of Singapore where she is studying dust mites and allergies.
Tan estimates that 60 percent of the research teams she works with in Singapore are from Malaysia, despite her country’s efforts over several years to develop a biotech industry.

is it true that the Blue mansion will be shown on local cinemas?

Please confirm.

Warning for Niamah Patrick said...


This incident is not a comedy.
(Please apologize)

It is a true incident of a ghost seeking revenge for justice.

If you do not apologize, your house may be in the 77 high risk area that may suffer the fate of Bkt Antarabangsa.

Don't treat this as frivolous!

The corruption roots in our Barisan Nasional’s government runs way too deep and far too wide. Every independent institutions that supposed to keep the government from doing the wrong things are already compromised and infiltrated with people with political motives.

Our country is now generally a failed state. It is running on its own, without any check and balance. Every wrong move is covered by another wrong means and justified by some illogical explanations.

This is by far a more creative and constructive blog than Niamah blog:

We will learn how to get good tv shows instead of subscribing to Astro.

About time for you to buck up to make your site more readable with constructive elements and not just f#$% here and there all the time. It is bad for your karma.

Bocor teruk kata Samy
Wiring lama kata Ramli
Bangunan tua kata Nazri
Najib said it's PWD
Semua ada alasan sendiri
But where you all spent the money?
RM90 juta untuk cantikkan lobby
So that it looks luxury
Nice d├ęcor and nice settee
But now you kena letak baldi
Bocor teruk when it rains heavily
MP yang busuk pun boleh mandi
The floor is wet and slippery
The luxury lobby now looks untidy
Inilah dia third class mentality
Luar cantik tapi dalam very shoddy
Structure work should get priority
And now whose responsibility
JKR or Parliament Committee
While you all gaduh sama sendiri
Rakyat want an answer immediately
Otherwise kita tak bagi you undi
Sebab you spent money unnecessarily
You know it is taxpayers' money
So please spend the money wisely.
Somehow the bocor case closes as No Further Action (NFA) and nobody gets punish and no news publication. Siapa yang salah?

Nazri has told Tun M that BTN is indeed a Ketuanan Melayu program.

Katak Demokrasi said...

When BN overstays in the political arena, the people start questioning its legitimacy to rule the country.

Unfortunately, the government’s agencies – in particular, those entrusted with the administration of justice such as the judiciary, the police force and the Attorney General’s office – have also been duly affected when BN lost the legitimacy to rule. In other words these administrations unnecessarily carry the BN’s burden of legitimacy, or lack thereof.

“Every legal power must have legal limits, otherwise there is dictatorship ... Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Please give Nazri the credit on his stand on the BTN issue.

Nazri said: “You talk about patriotism, love for the country. Patriotism is for all Malaysians regardless of race. Therefore, the money spent on BTN to have courses must reflect the 1Malaysia slogan by the PM. It should not only be to raise patriotism among the Malays. Malaysia is for all races so I disagree with any syllabus which only concentrates on patriotism just on one community, I disagree. If they have a problem with that, I want to know what is their problem,”

Nazri questioned if Utusan Malaysia, which has been at the forefront of defending BTN courses, believes that Malaysia belongs only to the Malay community.

“Do they want to say that Malaysia belongs only to the Malays and the government is only a Malay government? Should only the Malays be given the spirit of patriotism? Other races are not patriotic about their country? So I want them to point out to me where is it that I’ve gone wrong If I disagree with the past syllabus,” he added.

Nazri also questioned Utusan for deceiving Malaysians on BTN.
