SiSepet and SiBotol when he spoke at a recent function. The Federal Territory assistant bureau director, Hamim Husin was speaking at a Puteri Umno closed-door briefing in Kuala Lumpur when he allegedly made those racist remarks. Of course, when it was reported the shit hit the fan. And so the cabinet in an example of uncharacteristic speed-of-action ordered a probe. And of course, when a probe is ordered by the government some things tend to go awry.
For example, the Human Resource minister, Subramaniam although announcing that the cabinet was 'disappointed' with the remarks attributed to the Hamim fler, hastened to add that "We need not to look at it from a racial point of view.......If it happens to any particular race, the situation would also be the same." (remember now, Subramaniam is a Malaysian cabinet minister and that, of course means he is often out of touch with real-life)
Of course, with every probe ordered there must be a disclaimer. This one is no different. The minister was quick to remind anyone who bothered to listen that Hamim had attended the function as a guest speaker and the views and comments expressed were made in his personal capacity, and not the official views and comments of the bureau and were not with any motive to insult."
See? With just one political-speak styled statement....KAO DIM.
Malaysia Apapun Boleh!!!
Oh yes there is one more laughable statement by the YB Minister of Human Resources. He made sure to tell everybody that reports of the incident only came about because reporters had "slipped" into the closed-door event without permission. Huh? Like errrrr....we're not talking about the same thing here, YB. (full story in The Sun today)
The other funny worth a laugh today is Ng Yen Yen, minister of tourism, who DENIED that the roof of the Malaysian pavilion in the Shanghai World Expo leaked. How does she know that for a fact? She has yet to receive a REPORT on the matter!!! Then she accused all her accusers by saying, " Why don't you visit the pavilion and see for yourself. How would you know if you haven't seen?" How? We learn from you ma, Why Bee. We received a report that it leaked so it's true lor. No meh? Oh ya. The LCD screens also not working hor. But Yen Yen (what a cutesy name) not to be outdone came back with this gem. When she was shown a photo of a bucket used to collected the leakage she retorted, "I think it (leakage) happens when there is heavy rain, water will be coming in." Wah! You don't say. I didn't know that wor. Really meh? Thank you ah. (full story in The Sun today)
