Monday funnies.

1Malaysia?
Well, if you look at enough multi-million Ringgit billboards you will get it.


But the first Monday funny is when Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein announced that a biometric system to monitor foreign workers in the country is expected to be in place by October.

Yay! Errr.... that's a Yay!, right?

First clue that it isn't going to work is when he also announced that the biometric database would be comprehensive and would involve 14 ministries!!! These days when even the PM and DPM can't seem to sync you expect 14 ministries to work together on something? Personally I stopped believing in the tooth fairy a long time ago.

Another sign that Malaysians REALLY don't have a clue what 1Malaysia is all about is the story that a company, Libroff Media Sdn Bhd has sponsored the building of a RM1.5million arch which will display "different 1Malaysia messages ...... every three months". Eventually, the company will erect 3 more multi-million Ringgit arches. One each in Kuantan, Ipoh and Malacca. The company says that the effort is part of its corporate responsibility. RM4.5million worth of 'responsibility'! Which could have been better spent I think. But that's just my opinion. And I really don't know what this 1Malaysia is about anyway.

And while we still on this 1Malaysia "promotion campaign" I read that the Police has formed a 'Task Force" to investigate reports that 2 mosques in Penang had, during its sermons, called upon the Almighty to bless and protect the state's chief minister but in so doing omitted mentioning the Agung or the Yang Dipertua Negara. Cannot one meh? I thought it is a good thing what. No ah? Can Muslim friends explain to us please? Seriously. What is the matter that is so sensitive here that a police task force has to be formed to investigate it?

And here is the part that should be scary news to all Malaysians. Muslims and non-Muslims alike. While speaking to the press about the task force, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Ayub Yaacob revealed that "our men are always there to do the recording. We also had plainsclothes policemen in the mosque ........... they have also taken photos of the Friday prayer and we will be looking into it. Do not think that we are not around although we may not be spotted."

A stern warning indeed! What a country we have become. Yay! Errr.... no ah?

This explanation sent in by a comment-er is informative reading for those who still do not know what the fuss is about.

I hope ure sincere asking for explanation but knowing you I think you will spin it off. Anyway I thought I will try.

For your information all Friday doas only refer to head of state and religion. Agong and the sultans are head of religion. This is the practice from time immemorial (as far as my lifetime knows it). That's why there's no doa specifically for Najib mahathir etc. a general doa perhaps but not specifically. We ask for forgiveness success and well being of the head of state. Now why must this good practice be replaced? Why must the head of state and religion be replaced? And be replaced with guan eng? Huh?

May be another way to explain it is this. What if bn replaces all the Fridays doa reference to king with Najib and rosmah. Doa for their well being and longetivity and that they become successful and lead the nation further. There would be uproar from pakatan and pas members. (some may puke) If you're already offended when rosmah was called first lady replacing permaisuri how can you not be offended when guan eng replaced the king in a Muslims doa.
Chee sin.


And finally, some words of wisdom from our minister of tourism Ng Yen Yen whom I think requires a reality check pretty soon. She said, "If we can offer helicopter tours, I am sure many rich tourists would come to Malaysia for aerial tourism."

No, wait there is one more funny to share. Bridges seem to be Mahathir's thing right? First the bridge to replace the Causeway to Singapore. Then when that didn't work out he proposed a Crooked Bridge. Then when Badawi scrapped that idea he got very angry. Now Mahathir has come out to oppose .... A BRIDGE! Some bright spark has proposed a 48km bridge to link Langkawi to Kuala Perlis. " CANNOT!" says Mahathir. "Langkawi must remain an island and is unsuitable to be turned into a land mass." Turned into a land mass? Okay....errrr...what's that mean ah?

And on that note, here's wishing you a good 1Malaysia week ahead.

NIAMAH!!!

Dear Bro Pat

I don't know what to comment. I am lost in the Malaysian national past-time of new fangled impressive sounding meaningless terminology. Biometric monitoring system ! WTF is that ? What do they measure ? Do the ministries keep a data base on the length of this and the length of that or the size of this and the size of that ? Could some smart one enlighten me?

Building arches is corporate responsibility ? Very expensive arches too. Reminds me of the 4 million dollar arch along the Federal Highway..... How much are they expecting from Naj for all this ball carrying and pseudo-nationalism..? You know I know....aaahhhhH

They are here, they are there, they are everywhere and yet they need a task force ? The undercover mosque goers must be multi-skilled. They "pray", they watch and see what you do, they listen to what you say, they sleep if dull and I presume they fart too !! Wow ! Such talented multi-skilled lay-abouts in the house of god. Now I know and they confirm, not all go to mosque to pray, some go to spy and some go to create mischief...and...and...! Oh god, where have you gone wrong to create such evil. Satan must be having a jolly good time.

As for NYY,be more imaginative lah. Get Wally to go to Putrajaya with their Disneyland. All the clowns are already there,the lake is there so are the donkeys, asses, pigs.... If that is not enough you also have world class bonkers ! What a show for the tourists. The helicopter is no gateway to the mile-high club.

Patrick,

In 1Malaysia there are plenty of ideas (all half baked) with very optimistic target dates. The Homo Minister did not specifically mention October 2010 as the implementation date for the biometric program, did he? What he actually did not say is the implementation date is October 2020 when the country will have 75% population of illegal immigrants and the remaining 25% born and bred malaysians will be the ones who will have to undergo biometric monitoring. For him and his cousins, they will all be long gone from 1Malaysia with Yen Yen as full time tourists elsewhere living off the stolen billions.

As for the Tourist Minister (yes, she spends more time being a tourist herself in other countries), she must be suffering from a permanent brain freeze to think that tourists will want to come to Malaysia and be spied on by undercover secret police hiding in mosques, museums, pubs, theme parks, hotel rooms, etc and be arrested for khalwat, praising some opposition leaders, not being sensitive to muslim malaysians, etc.

Gosh, if I have money I would be the first to leave this Bodohland, let alone be a tourist in this country flying in the death trap engineless helicopters (remember 1Malaysia as the country where jet engines can be stolen right under the noses of the mighty Defense Ministry). Perhaps there are still some suicidal tourists who would want to spend their holiday in the KD TAR submarine which either cannot dive or remain permanently submerged.

The bright spark is correct. In the long run it will benefit the rakyat of Langkawi. To make a trip to Langkawi is an expensive affair for an ordinary folk. Imagine a family of 4 - paying for ferry ticket, plus hotel, rental of car etc. Tourist are tied down with their time.

With the propose bridge, of cos it will create more jobs, ( more cronies will become millionaire overnight like Sepang )The next generaton there will definately be better off. Just look at Penang, thanks to the Penang Bridge. Tourist like to drive over to Penang because you enjoy the scenery, you hills, beautiful seaside and tourist like love to drive there every long holidays. One bridge is not enough and the second bridge is on the way. It will definately boost the tourism industry of Penang Island.

For so many years under Ah Koon, nothing much, but with Ah Guan's team you can see the development. Penang betul betul ho liao.

Terence Fernandez summed it up well in today's The Sun on the issue of racist school principals who called the non-malay students 'pendatang':

"Are these school heads to be entirely blamed? Perhaps they were emboldened by their leaders and superiors who had publicly made similar statements, some to the extent of articulating them with pointed apparatus."

Locally produced ah Niu's Chinese movie 'Ice Kacang Puppy Love', which was a box-office hit after raking in RM4mil, will not enjoy entertainment tax rebate as it has been classified as a foreign movie.

Why FINAS does not have 1Malaysia spirit?

I think Ah Niu (the Penang producer/director/singer) deserves more. At least he made movies that can sell in overseas market, unlike David Teo's syiok sendiri movies (got FINAS grant and tax exempted) that can only be Jaguh Kampung as they do not have any commercial value outside Malaysia.

WE can't blame the Malays for thinking that they were the original race in this land known as "Tanah Melayu" once upon a time because history has been deliberately distorted and hidden from all Malaysians by UMNO controlled BN government. Many Malays would still believe that HangTuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Lekiu and others were of their kind.

Team of scientists, archaeologist, historian and other technical staff from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Yemen & Russia had found the
graveyard of Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat and others, their skeletons had been analyzed and samples of DNA taken with the results showing: Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Lekiu and mates were NOT MALAY!!! They were CHINESE origins (Islamic) from China!!! Why were they here in Malacca? If you go back in history, you would know that they were on a mission to protect the UNGRATEFUL MALAY Sultanate from the frequent attacks by the Kingdom of SIAM (Thailand).

So Hang Tuah was not a Malay hero! They were the protectors of the useless and ungrateful Parameswara (who was from INDONESIA) who landed in Malacca and claimed that the land belonged to him!

Hang Tuah and friends were all from China , they were being assigned to the Malacca Sultanate because Parameswara requested the Ming Dynasty Emperor for protection! Hence, the rich historical heritage of the Babas & Nyonyas were being closely linked to the Seven Voyages to the Western Ocean by Admiral Zheng He who incidentally was a Chinese Muslim himself!

That's why the Hang Tuah series of history is MISSING from the Malaysian SEJARAH today!

The researchers hired by the Malaysian government also found the oldest tombstones (graveyard) in Kelantan in year 2000. Surprisingly, the tombstones were at least 900 years old! Older than the so-called Batu Bersurat. And the interesting thing was that they all belonged to the CHINESE!

Being landed first in Malacca doesn't mean Malay is the first in Malaysia because during that time, the road was too long or undeveloped for them to reach or see the other side of the coast where the Chinese had landed much earlier. If you want the hard evidence of what the truth of the Research reveals, please write to The Federal Association of Archaeology & Research of Michigan, USA .

This is a good reason to remind the Bumiputras NOT to ask the Chinese or Indians to go back to their Motherlands because the evidence had shown that Malays were NOT the original people of Malaysia ! The Truth Revealed (with evidence) and anthropologists have yet to ascertain if there was indeed a Malay race!

1)It takes 24 hours to transport one's car by barge into Langkawi
2)If bridge is built the ferry and barge industry will go down
3)Car rental industry will go down
4)Cab services will have no demand
5)Airline industry may get impacted too
6)Langkawi is actually a gateway into Indonesia and Thailand. If many people can get in out easily into Langkawi... like how rpk got out of the country... how la.
7)Langkawi is duty free- imagine the amount of smuggling by road>chocolates, liquor, etc. Human trafficking too might increase.

The above are reasons I can think of supporting the idea not to build a bridge- but the heck is "land mass".. no one knows. Bushism.

Thank you for your help to further my misgivings of malaysiam islam and its many confused followers.

Can you tell me who is the head of Penang ? It just so happen to be LGE, but if it had been a mamak , would there be a hue and cry ? Would LGE have asked for his name to be in the doa ? Come on mr Anon, muslims must show a bit of magnanimity and compassion for others even if you are with numerical superiority. This all boil down to the warped version of Islam that Malaysian muslims follow. You chaps are just plain paranoid and your paranoia know no bounds and you people are ever waiting to stir the big racial and religious shitpot for political gain. Tell me this is not true.

Frankly who wants to replace what you do ? Who cares and would any give a damn ? Do prayers really help anyone ? If it does I will be the first to pray all day. I prefer to do something more useful and peaceful than get involved in this time wasting hypocritical charade. Just imagine the number of hours lost and the extra time to reach high income developed country status.

BTW I gave up on Malaysia decades ago and I haven't changed my opinion. I wish all good but unfortunate Malaysians well and if there is a god I hope he/she/it will strike down all the corrupt, the evil, the shameless, the fakes and the murderers.

For all the rhetoric and the welcome mat being laid out for foreign banks and insurers by Najib, Malaysia still looks sickly compared with its peers.

Private investment is 12% of gross domestic product compared with 30%prior to the Asian crisis and is among the lowest in Asia, according to the World Bank. Productivity growth has halved to 3% since the 1998 Asian crisis and the World Bank says Malaysian firms innovate less than those in Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

Foreign direct investment has fallen off a cliff since the glory days of the early 1990s when Malaysia accounted for 39.8% of Southeast Asia’s total, in part reflecting Malaysian companies investing overseas in faster growing economies like Indonesia. In 2009, according to UN data, Malaysia accounted for just 3.8% of the region’s total.

Najib’s reform momentum appears to be stalled, with liberalisation being attacked by conservative Malay groups who fear their special economic, social and political privileges are under threat.

Productivity growth has halved to 3% since the 1998 Asian crisis and the World Bank says Malaysian firms innovate less than those in Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The drastic drop in productivity is expected as Malaysia relies heavily on unskilled, untrained and ill-educated cheap foreign labor to drive its industry. How can Malaysia firms innovate when its talents leave for greener pastures overseas because of racial discrimination and sweatshop salaries back home? It was reported that salary rise was only 2.6% for the past 20 years! Which Malaysian wants to do difficult innovation jobs with so little pay? Can the unskilled, untrained and ill-educated foreign labor take up such jobs?

NKRA “Najib Kerja, Rosmah Arah” (Najib works, Rosmah directs) is not a new “phenomenon”. A flip-flopping Najib is known for his indecisiveness, and lack of political will to bring new ideas and new development to pass. In fact, some political analysts claimed Najib is no better than his flip-flopping predecessor Tun Abdullah Badawi.

With reforms and economic liberalization being attacked by conservative Malay groups who fear their special economic, social and political privileges are under threat, Malaysia will continue to be locked in the middle-income trap and will soon be overtaken by fast-developing countries like Vietnam and Indonesia.

Dear Anon C 8.06 am

Thank you for your enlightenment on YOUR constitution. You seem very proud of your capricious Constitution which has been changed umteen times according to the whims and fancies of any tyrant.

Being not a loyar burok, for me the head of state is the man who is running the day to day affairs of the state, not some clown dictated by YOUR discriminatory constitution whether it be Agong,Ahkong or Niamah. I am not interested in YOUR constitution and its inanities.

You avoided telling me whether LGE asked for his name to be in your doa, if at all his name was mentioned as alleged. So you are not so stupid afterall to crucify yourself to admitting that shit was stirred for racial political purposes.

To repeat for you, I gave up on Malaysia decades ago. I am not as stupid as you think I am ! With 2 generations of indoctrinated smug idiots, it is going nowhere but downwards. My advice to all those with ability is to get out as soon as they can before the big implosion. Read my lips,- "It is coming"

Good luck to you. You will live in interesting times. If you don't know the meaning of this prediction go and ask a Chinese educated Malay friend.

Again it shows your ignorance. In Islam though solat is compulsory, under certain instances you may defer it (not abandoned it) especially for security forces. Thus policeman manning the traffic must carry its duties if required so. Thus an army is obliged to continously fight if required to. Otherwise it would be total chaos. Of course it would be better to schedule the duties properly so that everyone can pray but to make a sweeping statement like you did shows how ignorant and numbnuts you are.

For too long racial polarisation has existed without any serious effort being made to eradicate it. Schools have become simmering cauldrons of racial bigotry.

The fact that the national schools only favour one race or religion is testament to the fact that other races or religions are held in low esteem. Article 8 of our constitution is mere lip service. The contributions of the non-Malays to this country are not emphasised at all. Islam proclaims fairness to all irrespective of religion but the Malays who profess this religion are willing to omit this from their faith.

Has the government not realised the disenchantment of the non-Malays with the educationists and the education system? Who are we kidding? Each day passes and non-Malays feel that they are second-class citizens.

However, the vast majority of the Malays do not reap the benefits of the so-called pro-Malay policies. Najib, if you are man enough, undo all the damage caused by your government over the years.

if you don't respect the consitution, there's only one thing to say to you: go fly kite. in fact Your stupidity should not allow you to stay anywhere in this face of this earth. Might as well go to the moon. Logical basic explanation pun tak boleh comprehend. Not one country in this world now is not based on a constitution be it formal or informal. Otherwise a country can't function. But may be there is one. The place you're staying: the toilet bowl country with all the faeces like you.

Rais Yatim, when Utusan Malaysia and the racist school principals of Johor and Kedah made outright derogatory outbursts against non-Malays, you kept quiet. When Ridhuan Tee Abdullah made equally racist remarks, you kept quiet.

Now, Namewee, a non-Malay, is brave enough to make a video, and you suddenly found your voice. Bloody double standards. Is the BN government for Umno Malays only?

Dear mr Anon C 3.42 pm

Looks like you like harping on YOUR constitution and your basic logic expects me to compel myself to respect it. No Mr Anon, I do not respect it. It used to be a reasonable piece of paper but after much mucking around I have lost all respect for it. I am only reminded of it each morning at 6 am, plus minus a few minutes.

YOUR constitution now is no more than a set of biased unreasonable conditions set down by a gathering of jaguh kampongs. It has been interpreted or misinterpreted or totally ignored by those with the power of abuse so much so it is more suited to the toilet bowl you mentioned than used in the rightful and peaceful running of Malaysia. Tell me, loyar burok, how many times have the Americans or the Australians changed their constitutions. Tell me too, loyar burok, how many times has mamak alone changed the constitution of Malaysia. Knowing this now, do you expect Malaysia to function well and earn the respect of the world community ?! Of course not, so "the toilet bowl country" is actually Malaysia and the faeces actually refer to people like you with plenty of faith but not the ability to reason to separate truth from fiction.

I actually did what you suggested, I went and flew,but not a kite. I flew in a 747. I didn't feel stupid but I felt sorry for Malaysia for having lost a man with my IQ. Did Malaysia feel the loss ? Of course not ...... with buckets full of faeces floating all round, people like you only feel numb.

BTW I was given a welcoming ceremony into my new community. The silence of Tarzan's "ooh--eee--ooh" in the morning is deafening but much appreciated.

You dumbwit. I bet you can't tell me how many times we've amended our consti. I also bet that you can't Even give me three amendments that you find objectionable. You know why? coz you have No Brain.. Talk general parroting other people. Can't even argue sensibly. You go And ask your so proud American and British lawyers of your argument and you know what they'll say: Chee sin. A stupid moronic argument full of malice and ill intent. Then they ask you to get out of their country coz you can't even respect head of state or better still to know what is the head of state.

Dear luBo taolo,

your friend is wrong. You are not only stupid but an extreme bigot. I can explain this but your skewered prejudiced mind does not have capacity to understand. It's like asking Christians why their god has son etc or why Chinese pray to those who have died? There are reasons for these if you seek to understand. Similarly with Muslims if you care to understand. But from your questions you're implying Muslims are stupid. I resent that. I think you are one extreme bigot.

Dear Anon 10.24 pm

I also resent you answer. You dowan to answer my questions but you get angry and call me names. I hear people say muslims super-sensitive especially people say truth. Now I know they right. You only conclusion and call names becose you not have the answers and you shame say if have.

I also ask Christian why some thing so funny but they try explain and I happy but I still not understand. I am from French country in Pacific ocen and have many Chenise friends and other people. I find Chenise people like peace and fair if you fair but I no like you becose not very good muslim.

You ask y i read "Niama". I tell you, one sailor tell me you want learn chenise cooking u must go "niamah". He say niamah mean your mother and mother cooking very good. When I go niamah i find funny reports and some angry people but i enjoy some jokes and try understand some things inot understand. I think they write local language. I want read jokes more oftener with niamah. My country night quiet,not like paris. After see muslim write I dowan my children be muslim.

My French friend like show 2 finger people he not like,so I am show same to you,stupid muslim.

Au revoir

Dear Anon 10.09 pm

This will be my last reply to your innate stupidity. Your ability to draw a good conclusion to what you write is sadly lacking. There is no point going on about the greatly modified malaysian constitution. You know I know the original wisdom has been destroyed by the mongrel so please don't try to justify the idiotic movements today in Malaysia by quoting the constitution. As I said I only think of it when I wake up.

My American or British lawyers will not think of me as they would think of the top Malaysian lawyer for MACC. Your are no top lawyer or even a loyar burok so please don't take me on.

My heritage tells me never to argue with a fool, my American understanding tell me never to engage in a pissing match with a skank. With that I leave you to dwell in interesting times.

BTW what does MF stand for ? I am not good with acronyms. Does MF stand for mamak fucker, malaysia fucker or My fucker. Choose which is most appropriate ?!

Patrick Teoh,

In Friday Prayers, there are certain practice, rites and prayers that is compulsory to be performed. It has to be performed in a specified way. For example, the Imam have to give a talk normally about 25 minutes and then lead a prayers. This is compulsory.

About offering the prayers for the head of state. This is actually voluntary and it is encourage. It is not compulsory (In Islamic Sense) to do that. But in Malaysia, I believe there is a directive from the government and it have been practice for so long.

The problem here is that mentioning Lim Guan Eng's name in Friday Prayers, Muslims find it very odd. Even mentioning PM's name is also odd. In this case LGE is not a Muslim, therefore Muslim's find it not appropriate as this is a religious event.

I think the Imam is very unwise. By right he should have anticipated the reaction by the Muslims and not doing what he did.

To Patrick Teoh,

Since you ask about the Friday Prayers, would like to add also on the issue of MP who give a talk in the Surau.

In Islam, there is no prohibition for non muslim to enter the place of worship.

The place of worship is sacred to Muslim. There are certain dress-code needs to be abide and the place have to be treated with respect. There are even guidelines for Muslims what to do and what not to do in a Mosque.

In this particular issue, the problem is about the dress code. Secondly, the MP was making a speech. This is not appropriate as there are people praying there.

To solve this problem, there should be a guideline by the authority on what the non-muslim can do and not to do.

By following these guidelines, dress accordingly, non-muslims can enter the mosque or surau.

This is actually a religious issue but as you know it have been politicized.
