Oi! You laughing at me?

Oi!!! Who you calling stupid?

Aiyoh!!! I am getting really confused la. I keep reading on the Internet that the world is laughing at us. Mostly about our continuing debate on who can use the word Allah and who cannot. But then recently, no less than the flers in the United Nations applauded our Najib for painting a picture of our country as a model of moderation. In everything. Even President Obama heaped praise on us when he didn't show up for his visit due to his country shutting down. Papers in the Middle East and even Pakistan are giggling if not laughing out loud. At US!

 So what names is the world calling us now? Can they use it or not?

You just tell us, we know the problem already.
We order parts now. You wait la.

Don't know how long.


Let me tell you a true story and you tell me what's wrong with it.

Fri - I call Sony Malaysia to ask for repair service for my Bravia TV. The colors were distorted. I am told that since it is Friday my service request will be attended to on Monday morning. I was assured that the technician will call me on Monday.

Tuesday - I call Sony to inform them that the technician did not call as promised. They check. "Yes sir, the technician has informed that they have ordered the spare parts to service your TV." But nobody's even seen the TV so how do they know what to order. "Okay sir, I will make sure the technician call you." Nobody called....

Wednesday - I call Sony to inform them that it's been almost 3 days since I was promised some service for my Bravia TV. "Wait. Let me check, sir. ..... Yes sir, the spare parts are on order." But how do they know what parts to order? "Our technicians are very experienced so when you tell them the problem they already know roughly what is wrong and the parts that are needed. Did the technician call you?" No. "Let me check." I was also told that since my TV is at least 5 years old parts were not so readily available and they have to be sourced from Singapore or Japan. And sometimes they need to be MADE!!! "Sir, I have spoken to our technician and he says that they have ordered the parts." But how do they know what parts? "Okay, sir I will ask my technician to call you today before 6PM is that okay?" Errr...I suppose so.

For the past 30 years whenever there was a need to buy a TV there's never been any hesitation on choosing Sony. This will change. And that is not a threat.

p/s  Oh ya. I forgot to tell you all that in the last conversation, the nice Sony lady did also tell me that the promised call from the technician today is to inform me how much the parts will cost. HUH???!!! So they have ordered parts ahead of my approval and consent to purchase? Can one ah? And if I follow this thread of action it will be a month before my TV problem can be resolved. Wah!!!
Update @5:52PM Wednesday 23 October, 2013
This is almost tragically funny. The Sony technician just called me.
"Your TV color got discoloration right? So that means your panel got problem. Replace new panel will be RM2,872 not including service and transport. So better you buy a new one. Now new one with Internet only about 2-3 thousand. And I suggest when you buy new one you better get extended warranty because the new panel osso don't last long one. I don't want to come your house to tell you because I tell you like this but if I come to your house then I have to charge you RM70. Okay ah. Thank you."

And so the Sony customer service saga draws to a close. Bottom line, my Sony LCD TV didn't last 5 years (my last Sony CRT TV lasted almost 18 years) and I have to go spend some more money and get a new one. Won't be a Sony. Thank you.

Update @ 5:54PM
The Sony lady called again. "So my technician called you already, right? Anyway, I spoke to my supervisor and he has asked the technician to go over to your house and double-confirm (I love this Malaysian phrase, don't you?) the fault is that alright? I will also come over."
Not that the visits are going to do me much good, TV-wise. But it will be double-confirmed la. That my TV is DEAD!

What is Your name ah?

Actually, what is your name ah?

God has been in the news a lot lately. Mostly about what His name is. I don't see what the big fuss is about. What's in a name? We all believe there is only one God, right? Well, I am not talking to my Hindu friends la. They've got so many they can't remember all the names so names ain't a big thing for them. But, so what is the big deal with God's name? Why can't I call Him what I wish. With respect. With love. With understanding. For all we know, God's real name might be Jimmy. Or Hassan. Or Moorthi.

Actually, does anyone think that God really bothers what you call Him? Personally, I think God is big enough to be over all that. As long as we follow His teachings. As long as we love each other as we love ourselves, like He taught us. He will be happy with us and bless us. But we have not been doing His will nor have we been following His teachings for a long time, have we? Not really.

And then some more ah...... think about it......when I get the chance to meet God face-to-face and had only 1 question to ask the Supreme Being, the One who knows the true meaning of life, the Omnipotent One who knows the answers to all questions ever conceived. Would I go up to Him and ask, 

"Excuse me. Actually, what is Your name ah?"

Hey!!! The old man finally says something sensible. Thank you, Dr. Mahathir.

So come on, Syed Mokhtar AlBukhary, Daim, Nazir Razak...and also Vincent Tan, Ananda Krishnan and Gnanalingam and those flers with all the AP's selling Porches, Ferraris and Lamborghini's. Do your patriotic duty wor. Hee hee hee...

Can work ah?



" is time for the massed ranks of the moderates everywhere to stand up and to say to the extremists with a single breath a firm, resounding “no”....." - Najib Razak

My friend, Art Harun posted the speech transcript below.
This was a speech made by Najib in 2012.

After I read it, all I could say was CIBAI LA. NIAMAH!!!

" we can best foster tolerance and understanding not by silencing the voice of hatred but by making the voice of reason louder" ah?

Yormarder la!!!

A great and magnificent speech about the goodness of moderation. This is an example of how a great leader can change the world by espousing moderation to fight extremism.
 This should be emulated by every leader in the world.

 "In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad counsels that “moderation is the best of actions”; in Christianity, the Bible says “let your moderation be known unto all men”; and in Judaism, the Torah teaches that moderation in all things is a “way of life” in the truest sense of Jewish custom.
 But if moderation has long had a home within the world religions, then the reverse is also true: extremism has never been welcome inside our mosques, churches, synagogues and temples. Perpetuating hatred is, by its very nature, a lonely pursuit, flying in the face of widely held morality – and it is this dangerously untethered animus, coupled with a head-in-the-sand refusal to acknowledge the views and the values of others, that makes extremism such a potent threat.
 And yet, time and again the side of righteousness has triumphed. History has been made not by those who espoused extremism but by those who, without surrendering their beliefs, stayed true to the path of moderation. We are all familiar with the extraordinary strength of will and leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi, but you don’t have to be a world leader to be an inspiration. Moderates can make a difference wherever they make a stand – and it is time for the massed ranks of the moderates everywhere to stand up and to say to the extremists with a single breath a firm, resounding “no”.
Because one thing is clear: we cannot rid the world of extreme views by force. Violence begets violence – so we can best foster tolerance and understanding not by silencing the voice of hatred but by making the voice of reason louder. Persuasion, negotiation and co-operation: these must be our weapons in the face of enmity and malice." : End quote

HUH??? How come like this one?

Some are just more equal than others.

When I read this headline in The Malaysian Insider today I did a double take.

Pro-Putrajaya senators slam PCA critics, say law defends basic rights of majority 

A law that only defends the basic rights of the MAJORITY???

Wasn't it always the case that the MINORITY needs defending? Or have things changed that much in our world?


Why you all so like that?

Hiyah! Why you all so like that? Small thing only ma. Every department also lose things what.

The Auditor-General says that we are angry at the government over his findings of wastage because we have not read his report properly.

He said the main reason behind the wastage and asset mismanagement is due to civil servants not adhering to procedures and guidelines.

"In many instances, problems arose simply because the proper procedures had not been followed"

Yes, Tan Sri. So procedures were not followed. So who is responsible for making sure procedures are followed?

So sad. Now the Auditor-General also thinks Joe Public is stupid. Sigh.

But the most shocking thing I read in that Malaysian Insider story is that the Auditor-General wondered why the police were under the spotlight over the RM1.33 million in lost assets.

He basically said, "Hiyah! Why you all so like dat? Other departments osso lose assets what!"

I don't know la. This is a very strange country I live in.

Hiyah! What have we become after 56 years of nationhood?

While on the way home just now I drove past a bunting advertising......


Can anyone think of another country in this day and age, with the possible exception of North Korea, where this kind of thing is allowed to happen? Seriously.


The comedy is becoming a little scary

By now, a lot of us would have heard the Zahid fler's speech threatening the press at an Umno event in Malacca.
He couldn't give a flying fuck what you think about him. He is the Minister. He is riding high. He is a damn shrewed politician. And I think it would do us well to learn to live with and deal with this arrogant piece of shit in the years to come.
Below is a reprint of the MalaysiaKini report on this latest step in the direction of ketuanan something or other.

Zahid's speech was mainly about his role in securing amendments to the Prevention of Crime Act 1959, or what his described as "my law", that was... peppered with jokes about Malay gangsters and some off-colour comments that are bound to annoy the Indian and Chinese Malaysian communities.

About 11 minutes in, Zahid appeared to be aware that there were journalists in the room and instructed them to omit certain parts of his speech.

"Sorry. If there are reporters, don't write this," he said.

However, towards the end of the event, Zahid appeared to have a change of heart and warned journalists, in a loud and angry tone, not to write about the event or their newspapers would be closed down. The transcript of this portion of his speech follows:

"They (journalists), don't write. This is closed door session, please. Don't write anything. Don't take any photograph of me and the crowd. I do not allow it. This is a closed-door session.

"I don't want; as informed by the CM (chief minister), this is a closed-door meeting; this is only for Umno delegates. If any news about what I say appears in the newspapers, be it in Malay, English or Chinese or Tamil, I will shut down that newspaper.

"Do not write, I say do not publish, do not put on Facebook, do not anything... [inaudible]."

The remarks were followed by loud cheers and shouts of "Keluar!" (get out) from those present.

Read more here:
Have you noticed that an ex-prime minister is appearing more often in all media, and saying lots more about everything from public safety to economy to Bumi rights than the prime minister?
The Chinese president comes to visit and is welcomed by only the Malaysian minister of health. Correct protocol meh? China is Malaysia's biggest trade partner wor.

 There! It's confirmed true. The minister has said it. Now SHADDUP or emigrate to another country if you don't like it.
And before that you thought it couldn't get any worse after......
Aiyooooooh!!! How to top comedy material like this la. Baarger! Even here also the garmen want to pecah our rice bowl meh?
If you are Muslim and are about to bite into that McDonald's cheese burger, DON'T!!! You may unwittingly be contributing to attempts by the USA to colonise Malaysia. Or rather YOU in particular.
The Malay Mail story HERE.
Okay, the big guy has said it. So no more arguments okay?
NEP does not benefit cronies - Dr. Mahathir

The old man says the NEP is not about cronysm. And that no one is going to lose anything from t...his policy but will gain from the growth of the country and share what they get from the growth.
He also said that the NEP is to distribute wealth to everyone.
I wonder how the mak cik and pak cik in the kampungs feel about this when they light the fire to boil the water they'd carried from the polluted river 2km from their leaky house?
 It's not often that 1 politician can come up with 2 great comedy routines within the space of a week. Comedic masters though they may be. But this fler managed it la. His name is Shahidan Kassim and he is a minister in the prime minister's department.
First, he said............
Malaysia antara negara terbersih daripada perbuatan rasuah. (Malaysia is a country that is totally free of corruption)
and then he followed it up with this howler. He proudly announced in Parliament that it was Mongolia and Israel who copied our slogan ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES and not the other way around.
Phew!!! What a relief. Now I can leave my gates unlocked. My wife can put her handbag on the passenger seat. Safely. My children can play in the park by themselves. Thank you Kerajaan Malaysia for passing The Prevention of Crime (Amendment and Extension) 2013 Bill. Ha??? No meh? But you say one ma. If got PCA then all the bad guys will be put in jail. No more crime ma. No ah? Then we are fucked. Again!

I was thinking of buying a couple of tickets and go with my wife to watch some stand-up comedy at PJLA tonight. But after reading this I changed my mind. I haven't stopped laughing la.

The missing guns may have fallen into the sea - Malaysian Inspector-General of Police explaining the disappearance of 44 guns from the police armoury uncovered by the latest Audito-General's Report.

The full ridiculous story HERE

NIAMAH!!! to the max lor!!!

The NEP benefits all Malaysians. But of course some benefit more than others. Natural ma. Isn't it?
The statement most likely to cause you severe heartburn and much shaking of head in disbelief...

NEP does not benefit cronies - Dr. Mahathir

The old man says the NEP is not about cronysm. And that no one is going to lose anything from this policy but will gain from the growth of the country and share what they get from the growth.
He also said that the NEP is to distribute wealth to everyone.
I wonder how the mak cik and pak cik in the kampungs feel about this when they light the fire to boil the water they'd carried from the polluted river 2km from their leaky house? Maybe in another 56 years their share of the NEP will arrive. Oh they'd be dead then wouldn't they? Sorry ah?

It's alright one. Don't worry.

Najib at the United Nations telling everyone how moderate he/we all are in Malaysia.
And how we all live in perfect harmony. They applauded him too.
Proves that the world is ruled by idiots.
God help us.
The government wants to amend the Prevention Of Crime Act (1959) which will include detention without trial for up to 2 years. They tell us not to worry. It is not the same as ISA. Najib, himself re-assures us that the powers to detain indi
viduals without charge or trial would be removed from the hands of the home minister under the new amendments.

“But this time (under the amended PCA), the decision will be made by a judge. So, if the police were to arrest anyone, they have to convince the judge that the particular individual should be detained”

The only thing wrong with the PM's reasoning is that these days not many Malaysians trust in the impartiality of the judiciary. Any more.

And some Perkasa fler says “If no offence has been committed, why is there a need to fear (the PCA)?”
Maybe he should talk to some of those people who have been detained under the old ISA. It all depends on whose interpretation of "offence" is being used at the time I guess.

The Perkasa fler also said ".....those who do not want the PCA, there must be a reason. Maybe they want this country to be in chaos or they have plans to create chaos in the country”

Really? I think Perkasa is doing quite well already in the chaos creating department. And they didn't need the PCA either.
What la!
