Almost the weekend stuff



This morning I woke up to some great news and some not so great news and some really shitty news in the newspapers which I still buy cos my domestic helper insists that they are great for keeping green vegetables fresh and crisp and she can also sell them to the "Old newspaper" man for a bit of pocket money.  Wah! Damn long sentence right?  Still grammatically correct or not, sir?

First the great news.  Marina Mahathir and Sisters In Islam's leader Zainah Anwar have been listed among the 100 most inspiring people in the world!  Yay!!! Congratulations, Marina and Zainah. We are so proud of you both.  According to The Star article Marina was listed at #57 and Zainah was placed 7th.  But of course being a Malaysian newspaper The Star is a bit short on correct details. It was an ALPHABETICAL list. Duh!


Now the not-so-great news.  I read that Apple is about to launch the iPad2!!! My iPad is not even 3 months old.  Baarger!!!

Okay, okay I am sure all you masochists out there are waiting to read what I have as the shitty stuff, right? Be warned though. It might make you throw up your lunch or breakfast. Or maybe not if you belong to the group of Malaysians who are always game for a good bargain. In whatever form.

On the front page of The Star and The Sun  today it was announced that traffic offenders who have outstanding summonses have been given another extension by no less than the Minister of Home Affairs himself.  The YB even announced that it was a CABINET decision! And you thought they would have much more important issues to discuss at cabinet meetings, right? Anyway, all those fuckers who got summonsed and didn't pay their fines are now going to get another grace period AND still be able to get a 50% discount!  As you know, there are still 17.3 million of these summonses with people who broke the law and are getting away with it. And with a present some more.  What pisses me off even more are some of the quotes from people interviewed by The Star.

One fler from Kepong said that he is very glad to have more time to pay his summonses which amounted to more than RM1,000! Another chappie said he paid RM800 to settle summonses 2 months ago and settled another RM800 worth before the deadline. But the fler who is most terror, revealed that he cannot afford to pay off all his summonses at once because they amounted to more than RM3,000 which was much more than his salary. Nobody, at any time, said anything about how the experience would make them pay closer attention to obeying traffic rules and laws in future. After all, why worry? Drive as fast as you like la. Park anywhere also can what. Red light ah? Just go through lor.  Summons?  Hiyah. Wait a while la. They sure give discount one. And so the rot keeps growing. And our YB's are telling us that their actions are because they are a people-friendly government. People First. Discounts Now!  What happened to YOU BREAK THE LAW, YOU PAY THE PRICE. IN FULL!

Also ah, all this extension of payment period for traffic summonses also make me wonder if our government is RUNNING OUT OF MONEY!!! Scary isn't it? More scary is the question of what all this is teaching younger Malaysians. That it is alright to break the law?

Even more scary is the thought that maybe somebody is setting the system in place for those flers involved in the Teoh Beng Hock case, the PKFZ scandal, the Aminulrasyid shooting, Altantuya.......etc. etc. etc.

Okay, okay...with all that shitty stuff there is also something that is quite funny in The Star today. The story can be found on page N4 under the headline 'Kerdau growth 'not to win votes'. Development programmes take place all year round, says Liow"

Pahang MCA chief Liow Tiong Lai said that goodies are not handouts by BN to win votes.  Okay. But then this is later reiterated by former MCA deputy prez Lim Ah Lek who said that the Chinese in Kerdau still remember the government's contribution to the community when it solved a problem involving a temple built on government land. Phwaaaar!  Good innit? When did that contribution take place? 1983!!! So hilarious la.  Maybe some loss in translation la.  But it made me laugh. I wonder if the Chinese flers in Kerdau laugh or not? Well, to be fair, Liow said 'all year round' but he didn't mention WHICH year ma.

Pat..couldn't agree with you more on the summonses fiasco! Only in Bolehland do you get this kind of wholesale discount. Fuck for all I know, they might have inflated the figure just so that when you go check your details, they can come up with all sorts of offenses like speeding and illegal parking that you didn't commit! And you would no choice but to pay up least you can't get your road tax renewed. Also, I had to pay up for a speeding offense committed by the previous car owner who has since migrated!!! Niamah!

Dear uncle Pat,
Always enjoyed your blog. Interesting that the temple 'goodwill' occurred in 1983, which means to say that BN did nothing(squat... nada.... zilch) for them for the past 7 election cycle. Hopefully the good Kerdau citizen come to their senses....

As for the summonses settlement issue, it is obvious the cabinets decision is based more on the money$$$ inflow and not the overall welfare of the public. Think longer extension = more $$$$. They must have needed the dough badly or this would not happen.

Really ultra-N.I.A.M.A.H. what this country is becoming......

If there is anything I like about the BN government, it is their inefficiency in collecting money due to them save the internal revenue department, but that is only for salaried income earners.

You bring in the PR government and they really go after those who are delinquent in payment.

I know, because I was delinquent for 15 years under the BN state government in quit rent. After the changeover to a PR government, I was slapped with a fine and a notice for the recovery of arrears, all of which I had to pay within the next 10 months, including the quit rent due in the following year.

Ask CLS if this is ok to him? How come he never speaks for the chineses community especially the girls? too busy sending the 1-M ngo to merlimau and kerdau?

myke8888 said...

Pat.. I can't help but to think that the govt is encouraging people to break the law by introducing discounts.
To top it off, the bloody govt is also slack in enforcement or I should put it that they are purposely doing it to encourage people to flaunt the law. Extra revenue mah ! That's why people park everywhere and speed. Know why ?? Cause they know there is slack enforcement and if caught will still get a discount.
Point is the bloody govt is full of shitheads who are good for nothing.

NEP is a ‘skin policy’ to make Malays millionaires by giving shares in public listed companies.

They neded not set up a company and build it from scratch.
Malays are rewarded for mediocre qualifications – places in universities and jobs in the public service.

UMNO allowed a few Chinamen to squander RM12.5 billion. UMNO may be incompetent but obviously they are not that stupid when come to pilfering public money. How does a minister deceive the Cabinet or the PM in their official capacity? Either the Cabinet or the PM are stupid or knowingly wanted to be deceived.

Then the letters of support issued by transport minister. Why in the hurry to interpret that these letters of support as obligations of the government. Kuala Dimensi and all the bond arrangers/issuers are sophisticated businessmen and investors. They are no nincompoops. They ought to know these letters of support are no letters of guarantee. So why billions of bonds were issued and bought based on a few worthless letters of support? It is that simple: there is a conspiracy to cheat the government and there is now a conspiracy to protect Kuala Dimensi and all the bond investors. All these can not be done by the Minister of transport alone, no way. Chinaman ministers should know better. First you have no power, and second you are stupid thinking that UMNO will protect you. Tan Koon Swan masuk penjara di Singapore and Malaysia bukan? It is a record that is hard to break.

Please do not believe that by the mere power of the voters the opposition can walk into Putrajaya. The writings are clear; PM swore over dead bodies and lost lives and the Defence Minister wants to shed blood for the PM. Something is very wrong. Why threaten your own people with blood letting? are we their enemies? Or are they just doing this to protect their ill-gotten gains and further rip off whatever that is left? The signals are no more signals but dangerous warning to the people of Malaysia. You have empowered the UMNO government and now UMNO will respond, Ghadafi Style, if you question their actions. UMNO cannot lose even if 90 % of the people vote for the opposition. Why? This is because of the dangerous cartel made up of the Police, AG Chambers, Judiciary, MACC, All State Commissions, the beaucrats and even the underworld; all being on the payroll on UMNO. While UMNO throws them the left overs, the UMNOcrat feeds and lives on the finest and best. Is there a saviour for Malaysia? There is and this would come as the looming Global Crisis on food and hyper inflation. The food prices will go soaring beyond the reach of the wage earner. This would be further compounded by the oil bubble. While food producing countries would blockade the export of essential items such as rice, the UMNO government would find that reviving the agriculture would be next to impossible. City life would be unsustainable and the Malay would return to the kampung; a kampung that have no more rivers to fish nor jungles to hunt from. Chinese would have to eat their paper money and the Indians would have nothing to beg for. Please vote BN and speeden up the process of destruction so we can put this agonizing life of ours behind.

Spurred by the Home Ministry’s latest seizure of 30,000 Malay Bibles that cost US$26,000 (RM78,000) from Kuching port, the churches rallied together and issued a stinging rebuke today against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

They demanded he “prove their (the government) sincerity and integrity in dealing with the Malaysian Christian community on this and all other issues which we have been raising with them since the formation of the Christian Federation of Malaysia in 1985”.

Why are the government and the Umno lackeys on the panel so stubborn and obstinate about this book? Can't they find any other Malay literature textbook that is not controversial, is unifying in its content and promotes national unity, tolerance and acceptance in its context?

Why stick to a book that consists of stereotypes, racial profiling and derogatory terms? Is the Indian unhappiness with this book seen as a provocation to the Malay hegemony that is so prevalent in our system today?

If the book is nothing but a literary work then is it acceptable to use a text that refers to Malays as generally lazy and stupid with a penchant for rape, incest and drug addiction all under the guise of literary freedom and social context?

The government is being very stupid. Increasingly, it is becoming clear that Malays can use all sorts of racist, derogatory and offensive words and gestures towards the non-Malays and get away with it with the tacit support of the Umno regime, but this is destructive.

Anonymous said...

UMNO's sinister motive is very obvious. They are bent on embarassing the Indians for starting the 2008 tsunami that brought them down to their knees and for continuously challenging their so-called authority, Malay 'supremacy' and demanding for their legitimate rights. They just want to 'tarnish' the image of Indians by running them down at every front to cow them into submisison and compel to accept whatever crumbs thrown at them. Look at the way UMNO-controlled media are bashing the Indians at every opportunity as though they are trouble makers and whatever actions taken by UMNO-led state machinery against Indians are justified. This is happening on a daily basis.and the Indians are not given the opportunity to rebut or air their side of the story in these media. They are always lop-sided, most of the time cooked-up stories, presented sensationally and dramatically to please their political masters and their blind audience/followers.

I just wonder why 'interlok' is now being introduced after the book being around for almost 40 years. Why this book when there are so many different ways of forging unity. It is nothing but UMNO's well-calculated move to etch forever the word' p' in the minds of the Malay populace so that their future generation of leaders continue to treat as lowly beings that does not deserve equal status as the rest of the Malaysians. It's a case of a wounded tiger that would not sleep until it has devoured the 'enemy'. Its time the Indians think hard don't on their next move.

The implementation of 1Malaysia since 2009, is already 2 years old. For 2 long years, what have PM Najib & the UMNO-leto government done to address the systematic discrimination & marginalization of the non-Muslim minorities through blatant abuse of Article 153 not based on Reasonable proportion but rather based on abnormal & obscene proportion? As far as I am concerned, they have done nothing.

Isn't it time for the non-Muslim minorities to realize & recognize that PM Najib's 1Malaysia is nothing but a con game to persuade & hookwink them to continue to vote for the UMNO-led BN in the coming GE? Isn't it time for the non-Muslim minorities to tell (through the ballot box) the UMNO-led BN that enough is enough? After all the UMNO-led BN could not care less for the interests & welfare of the non-Muslim minorities for the past 53 years.

Dear Patrick, please view the u-tube on KASE being fought by YB Mahfuz,hear the lawyers explaination.
It is very clear that our Police is abusing the law!!!,& that JPJ can be sued for not renewing road tax because of the 'blacklist'.The correct procedure according to law is;1)Police to issue notice & offer of a compound when an offence is deemed to be committed.2)If the offer is not taken up then the police take to the courts & the courts issue the summons for the supposed offender to appear before the magistrate & the case be heard.3)Only after all these has been exhausted the police&JPJ can blacklist or even haul up the offender to jail.
So you see the 17mil so called summons are actually notices that have expired!!!We should not pay because the police/GOM abuses it own laws!!!Hope you can spread the news to help our fellow Malaysians

I attended a forum on Interlok at USM a few weeks ago. According to one of the speakers, Interlok does make some generalised statements about all Indians in Malaysia.

No one says that a historical novel must be historically accurate. An author of a work of fiction is free to portray anyone in any creative way he likes. In this case, since he has chosen to exercise his creative power by denigrating minorities in Malaysia who have already been ill-treated, his work is not suitable for (1) school students, and (2) the purpose of promoting solidarity in a mutually respecting pluralistic society.

The main issue is not whether an author of historical novels has any right to write historically inaccurate historical novels. He has not done anything wrong vis-à-vis the purpose of writing a historical novel if he chooses to write a historically inaccurate one, given that a historical novel is still a novel. I don’t think Teck Ghee or other critics are unaware of this. The main issue is whether a historically inaccurate novel which denigrates minorities in a country with sizable oppressed or at least discriminated minorities is a sensible choice for school students and the express purpose of promoting solidarity.

If he had not chosen to denigrate any ethnic group or to denigrate all groups in similar degrees in his historically inaccurate historical novel, it would be a different story. In that case I would not object to the use of this book as a school text on solidarity grounds. I would not object at all if the former approach had been taken. I would object on the grounds that this was a distasteful work if he had chosen the latter approach. At any rate, it should be clear that the problem is not with historical inaccuracies in a historical novel. But perhaps Kee Thuan Chye is right that the book does have some educational value – as an example of racial bigotry or a counterexample to 1 mutually respecting pluralistic Malaysia (rather than I Malaysia 1 Ummah [a slogan you can see in some USM offices]). As for positive lessons on solidarity and mutual respect, we certainly need a better book.

Of all the criticisms leveled by civil society against the Government’s unity programmes, and in particular ‘1Malaysia’, it is the complaint that these appear to be aimed at achieving nothing more than superficial change that rings truest. Over the two-plus years of the latest round of rhetoric, it has become painfully obvious that the Government seems more fixated on the appearance of togetherness, a ‘face-lift’ as it were, than entrenching the core values that will engender unity organically. Were it otherwise, not only would Malaysians have been given that much more to chew on than the current round of slogans and media campaigns, they would also have been shown in a more concrete fashion how it is the Government proposes to tackle those divisive issues in society that are the direct cause of disunity.
