Back to work

Have to cut short my Raya holiday.

Something comes up and I have to immediately get back to work.

It's going to be quite busy for me over the coming days.

I may even have to slow down a bit on blogging for the time being.

As of now, the really big thing brewing is the situation in Selangor where Pas' support for Menteri Besar TS Abdul Khalid Ibrahim may signals the demise of Pakatan or at least the political career of DS Anwar Ibrahim.

The situation is getting hotter.

I would like to suggest for everyone to follow the development of that issue.

Please get updates of the issue from other reliable sources as I may not be able to provide the latest due to my possibly hectic work schedule over the coming days.

Well, that's all for now.

Need to get ready for work tomorrow.

Be cheerful, okay. I leave you all with a bit of nice music,

A fight Singapore cannot win

Some feel that it's shaping up into another tit-for-tat between Malaysia and Singapore.

Senior blogger Apanama is apparently one of them. You can read his take on the matter here,

Singapore threatens Malaysia… again?

I'm on the other hand believe that it is not going to be the case.

This is so because I believe the Singaporeans are not stupid.

My bet is that there are many more Singaporean registered cars plying the Causeway than those of Malaysia.

I believe it will still be so even if the costs of driving across the Causeway increase by 10 times.

So, if there is an increase in toll charges on their side, the ones who are going to bear the brunt will mostly be Singaporeans, not Malaysians.

Singaporeans simply just need the space Malaysia provides.

As I had previously argued, Malaysians who will mostly suffer from the toll hike are only those who drive to work in the island republic.

As for all those vegetables lorries and other Malaysian vehicles carrying essential goods into the republic, any additional cost due to the toll hike will likely be passed on to Singaporean consumers.

In short, if there is going to be a tit-for-tat over the cost of traveling across the Causeway, the Singaporeans are the ones who are going to be worse off.

I believe the Malaysian government had taken this into account before deciding on imposing the VEP and additional toll charges at the Causeway.

Still, I hope Malaysian officials and their Singaporean counterparts could meet to discuss the matter and made each other understood and find a common ground for the benefit of people on both sides.

I do not like the idea of another round of Malaysia-Singapore hostilities.

Both countries had done well to improve relations over the past years and it would be a pity if relations deteriorate again.

I never consider myself anti-Singapore despite numerous irritating things the government of that island did in the past.

Many of my loved ones are Singaporeans and Malaysians living there.

I hope the Singaporeans could for once tone down a bit on their kiasu arrogance and admit that there are instances where they cannot win going against Malaysians.

This is one of them.

Okay, I know the Singaporeans need to save face and try to sound tough when they said they are going to retaliate on the toll charges, but seriously, this is one fight that they cannot win by playing tough.

Singapore need to remember that they are not actually Israel.

What? You are angry with Malaysia for charging your people more for driving across the Causeway and in response to that you want to charge your people even more? Don't be stupid, okay.

Better for you all to get your truly handsome Hsein Loong to talk with his friend Najib so that the whole thing doesn't affect our bilateral relations.

Anyway, I really hate the idea that some Malaysian crooks, particularly those in Johor using a potential tit-for-tat between the two countries to divert attention from their nefarious agenda.

About EDL, haze and Empress Ki

First, let me write a bit about the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) issue in JB.

You can read the news at Bee Kim's blog here,

New Toll Fee System at CIQ

There has been quite an outcry over the new toll charges at the Causeway,

One of the complaints was that the BN government had before the last general election promised to buy the EDL highway from MRCB and make it toll free.

The promise was made despite the initial proposed toll charges being meant only for vehicles coming from Singapore.

As far as Malaysians are concerned, the toll hike primarily affects those who everyday drives to work in Singapore from JB.

I don't think others who occasionally drives through from either sides of the Causeway are going to really feel it too much.

It's a fact that this group of people who can afford to drive into Singapore to work there instead of riding a motorcycle or took the bus are mostly Chinese with relatively good job in the island republic.

Bear in mind that the promise by BN was made at a time when the ruling coalition was bending backward to please the Chinese community.

The outcome of GE13, however, suggested that no matter what BN do for the Chinese community will never be appreciated by them.

All 14 Chinese majority State constituencies in Johor went to DAP.

BN leaders such as former MB Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman who had done a lot for the Chinese community in Johor got burned at the polls. That despite promises by his old Chinese friends that he would get their support.

Now, I guess the Malay-dominated BN government has become smarter. Enough of trying too hard to please the Chinese community.

Just be fair to them. That is good enough.

After all, it was silly to spend so much money to buy a highway and make it toll free just to please a handful of well-off people who could afford to drive to work in Singapore.

Really, if you drive along the EDL in JB without going into Singapore, it's free.

So, I don't know what the so much fuss is all about.

Pulai MP DS Nur Jazlan Mohamed was among the angriest.

You can read about it at Outside the Box's,

Jom Menyusahkan Manusia : Raise Toll Ok But Why 400%?

What's wrong Jazlan? So many of your constituents drives to work in Singapore is it? Do you think they will appreciate you and BN if there is no toll at the Causeway?

Well, I don't think so.

Anyway, if you think the toll charges at the Causeway is now too expensive, I would like to suggest for you to try going through the Second Link instead. I think it's about the same, plus it's not so congested there.

Okay, enough of that. As if MRCB or BN pay me to defend them....

Today is the second Hari Raya.

Someone actually asked me out but I declined.

Why the hell would I want to go to Sunway Lagoon with him on a day like this.

I rather continue sleeping at home.

Anyway, the haze is so bad here that I don't really feel like going outdoor.

I think the haze has become a permanent feature of our KL environment.

Whenever I go outside these days, I put on a surgical mask.

Almost every weekend now, I would drive out of KL to get a proper breather.

My favorite is either Cameron Highlands or the East Coast.

But today, I think I just want to rest at home and continue watching some Korean drama.

I am a bit hooked on these Korean dramas.

They got the winning formulae, especially for girls.

Most of the story line have it that there is a beautiful girl whose love is being sought after by at least two men.

Girls love to fantasize about that sorts of nonsense. Myself included....hahaha.

At the moment I am watching Empress Ki at Episode 22. The serial has more than 50 episodes.

It's about this girl who had the emperor of China and king of Korea, both dying for her love.

Well, what more could a girl ask for isn't it?

And the girl was not even that pretty.

I think the guy who played the Chinese emperor was prettier and more girlish than her.

All not so pretty girls like myself would love to watch this drama.

You can actually just watch it at YouTube.

Okay....enough of my nonsense rambling.

I need to go to toilet now for big business.

It's all those Hari Raya spicy food that I have been eating since yesterday.

See you all later.....

A Raya morning prayer

It's not yet 5am as I'm writing this.

Earlier, woke up automatically for sahur only to realize that it's pagi Raya.

Can't go back to sleep.

I don't think it's going to be much of a Raya for me this year.

It has been like that for a few years now.

I just go through the routine.

Later, after doing all the necessary, I will get dressed up in my baju kurung and do the ritual of beraya with my parents.

Kiss the hands of my father and mother while asking their forgiveness for whatever offense I had cause them.

Actually it's a good practice as I think I offended my parents quite a lot, especially my mother.

As I had previously said, I am not a good girl.

It's also always nice to once in a while see my mother all dressed up in baju kurung and demure with my father.

Normally, she is always the garang Chinese wife.

Well, later I think I am going to rest the whole day.

I am not too much into the habit of going Hari Raya at my friends' and acquaintances' house.

Some may accuse me of being an anti-social but I think everyone should just spend time with their family on the first Raya.

Just relaxing at home is nice, okay.

Being comfortable and cosy with one's own family on such a special day is the best for me.

Actually, I can't remember the last time that I attended a Hari Raya open house.

Well, not many Raya open houses this year anyway.

The government had more or less canceled all of their's due to the MH17 tragedy.

Yes, there have been too many tragedies this year.

It's just not appropriate to be too joyful even on Hari Raya.

There were even tragedies on the political front.

The biggest should be the one hitting opposition leader DS Anwar Ibrahim over the past two days.

First, Pas president DS Abdul Hadi Awang said he is backing TS Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, thus thwarting Anwar's attempt to install his wife DS Dr Wan Azizah Ismail as Selangor MB.

Then yesterday, on Raya eve, Pas spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat gave Anwar the coup de grace by saying that he is backing Hadi's decision.

The Anwaristas in Pas, led by the likes of Mat Sabu, Husam, Mahfuz etc were totally checkmated.

This is going to be the worst Hari Raya for Anwar in a very long time.

With the pending decision of his final appeal against the sodomy conviction still hanging in balance, Anwar must be feeling really lousy now that the Pas leadership had clearly deserted him.

DAP has suddenly gone quiet.

They know that Pakatan will split up if Pas continue to assert itself and refuse to play the part of a junior partner in the coalition.

The DAP leaders must be scrambling to get themselves into baju melayu and baju kurung for visits to Pas leaders' homes during this Hari Raya.

DAP people knew that it is up to them now to salvage the situation.

PKR is too messed up even to save themselves while Pas appeared not to give much of a shit anymore about the whole thing.

If Pakatan breaks up, I think DAP knew it will be the start of a scary new Malay unity for them to fight.

The worst case scenario for them - Pas working together with Umno.

If that happens, the real loser will be the Chinese community who had mostly thrown their lot with DAP in the belief that they are the king makers in Malaysian politics as seen in the GE13 last year.

Honestly, I am also scared of the prospect of a super powerful united Malay front, similar to the united Chinese community support for DAP now.

I do wish for a more united Malay community, but not the way it is shaping up now.

A united Malay gang on one side and a much smaller united Chinese gang on the other.

With the Malay and Islamist hardliners on the rise, things can get nasty real quick.

All those DAP's rhetorics about the more prosperous minority Chinese being oppressed in this country may actually come true.

Remember Lim Guan Eng's "We are second, third, fourth, fifth class citizens...." rhetorics. Well, that's going to come back and bite your ass off Guan Eng.

I hope the Chinese will realize that going the arrogant DAP's way was wrong.

That is actually my Raya morning prayer.

Really, despite the DAP cybertroopers accusing me of being an anti-Chinese racist, I sincerely don't want their Chinese community to suffer for foolishly believing in that immature daddy's boy Guan Eng and his evangelical banana church gang.

Anyway, I do love the Chinese side of myself.

Always has and always will.

Selamat Hari Raya.

Maaf Zahir Batin.

Hadi's special Raya present to Anwar

So, Pas president DS Abdul Hadi Awang had dropped a bomb shell yesterday.

He doesn't want DS Abdul Khalid Ibrahim to be removed as Selangor MB.

And the result of it was obvious :

Rift Widens As Hadi Backs Khalid

No wonder Hadi was not present at the Pakatan's presidential council meeting on Tuesday.

Opposition leader DS Anwar Ibrahim had tried to use that meeting to show that all Pakatan parties are united in wanting his wife DS Dr Wan Azizah Ismail as the new Selangor MB and Khalid to be ousted.

Today, the Pakatan camp appeared to be still reeling from the Hadi's upper cut which seems had floored Anwar and practically destroyed his Selangor dream.

Their news portals were scrambling to put up headlines such as these to limit the damage,

Hadi's support for Khalid is not PAS's stand, Mat Sabu says

Is Hadi using S'gor MB tussle as a personal bargaining tool? 

But seriously, what is Hadi trying to do by backing Khalid?

I had given it some thoughts and here is my top 10 likely reasons why he decided to risk breaking up Pakatan by not giving way to Anwar's plotting against Khalid :

1. He knows the PKR sharks are waiting to pounce on all those lucrative contracts and other whats-not in Selangor once the follow-the-book Khalid is gone.

2. Anwar will have a hell of a party in Selangor once his wife, who is living under his thumbs became Menteri Besar.

3. The DAP evangelists will have full freedom to do what ever they want in Selangor if Khalid is removed. Issues such as the bibles seizure will go the evangelists' way and this will make Pas people look really dumb.

4. Pas will lose what ever left of its credibility as a party which supposed to be the defender of Islam because a Selangor government under Dr Wan Azizah will likely be more pro-DAP than pro-Pas.

5. Pas has everything to lose if the Malays in Selangor were not happy with the change of State government leadership while DAP will strengthen its position as the Chinese community will continue to vote for them no matter what kind of shit they do.

6. Hadi must had realized that the Pas' non-ulama faction led by Mat Sabu, who are backing Anwar's move will become more powerful than that of the ulama faction which he is a part of, if they get their way in Selangor.

7. Now that Pas' mursyidul am Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat is more or less retired. Hadi may feel that it's better to be friendlier with Umno than DAP, which clearly objects to Pas' struggles and PKR, which from day-to-day proved itself to be worse than Umno.

8. Hadi was probably irked that Anwar had meddled in the internal matters of Pas by planting his agents known as Anwaristas within the party's ranks. Mat Sabu and the gang even appeared to be living in Anwar's pocket by agreeing to all his whims and fancies. Hadi probably thinks that the Selangor crisis is the best opportunity for him to tell Anwar and his fanboys in Pas to f#*k off.

9. Hadi may likely has become smarter and realized that there is no future for Pas if it continues working with DAP. DAP's ultimate aim is after all to dominate everyone the way its Singaporean parent PAP did on that tiny island down south. Backing Khalid is probably the best way Pas could assert its power in face of the DAP's arrogance.

10. Hadi cannot tahan the pig smell in Pakatan anymore.

Saying it NICE like Anas Zubedy

Can't sleep and ended surfing the net.

Found at Anas Zubedy's blog that he is inviting Malaysians to say something nice.

He calls it,

#SaySomethingNice Campaign 2014 

Anas Zubedy is a handsome, a bit Mat Salleh Bangsar looking fan of The Star, that pro-DAP MCA owned newspaper.

He has the habit of buying expensive advertisements at that newspaper to display nice slogans, such as those Bangsa Malaysia stuff to make us Malaysians feel warm and fuzzy.

I guess he must be a very nice fella.

Well, I also guess that I am not much of a good Malaysian by his standard as I actually always feel like vomiting reading those Bangsa Malaysia slogans.

It's the hypocrisy that I can't stand.

Well, at least that's how I see it.

If I remember it correctly, the whole campaign (or is it campaigns) was actually initiated when The Star was making the effort to appease the Malays after they were hit by the Chinese tsunami of GE13 last year.

The Star, as far as I am concerned played a significant role in initiating the Chinese tsunami by helping the DAP's campaign to inflame the Chinese community against the Malay-led Barisan Nasional government.

Bangsa Malaysia.....hmmmmm

Here is my take on the concept of Bangsa Malaysia which is being bandied by people like Anas Zubedy in that backstabbing The Star (please check Helen Ang's blog for better understanding of that backstabbing bit),

Bangsa Malaysia bullshit

Well, never mind, since I got nothing better to do as I can't sleep, I think I want to try this "say something nice" campaign by Anas Zubedy.

How about this,

"Israelis are murderous bastards and their DAP evangelical Zionist supporters are so full of hypocritical shit for wearing tudung to mosques to dupe the Muslims in this country."

How about that Anas? Nice or not?

Or how about this,

"Liberal Malays who think that supporting DAP is cute are so full of shit."

Hmmm...I am already feeling warm and fuzzy.

Maybe I can now try going to sleep again.

If you want to feel warm and fuzzy too, please read my last posting,

Christian Zionism in Malaysia

That should explain why I said all those nice words.


I am a bitch, you said?

Ya ya ya...I know, I am the nasty racist sepet Sino-Malay bitch and Anas Zubedy is the good handsome Mat Salleh looking Bangsa Malaysia boy.

I am fine with that.

Oh, by the way, the Gaza Palestinian death toll as I am writing this had further increased to 840.

Christian Zionism in Malaysia

Helen posted this about two hours ago,

Palestinian dead and the hypocritical living

Helen was as usual trying to tell the Muslims, particularly the Malays not to be conned by the DAP evangelist Hannah Yeoh and her gang.

I hope Helen doesn't mind me simplifying her message here for the benefit of the intended audience.

Hannah Yeoh ni sebenarnya depan kita je baik sebab nak suruh orang Islam sokong parti Kristian dia DAP.

Dia tweet konon-konon simpati kat orang Islam Palestine yang kena bunuh kat Gaza,

tapi tak  sekali pun sebut yang dia simpati tu ialah orang Islam Palastine.

It's another one of Hannah Yeoh's con artist tricks, similar to her wearing tudung and going to mosques to show how Islam friendly her party and herself are.

It's something like what the Americans and other supporters of Israel do to show that they are humane while continuing to support the murderous Israelis.

They will condemn the violence but will not condemn the Israelis who commit the violence.

Do you know why evengelists such as Hannah Yeoh and others of her kind in DAP will never condemn Israel for being more barbaric than the Nazi?

If you don't, then read this,

Christian Zionism

Don't be scared to read it as it's just an article in Wikipedia and not some Islamic nut case propaganda manual.

If you are still not convinced, then read what the Islam hating evangelical American preacher Pat Robertson has to say about the whole thing,

Why Evangelical Christians Support Israel 

Really, I am not kidding you.

The evangelical Christians believe that it's okay for the Israelis to kill the Palastinians because the Jews are the chosen people.

These evangelical Christians include all those DAP leaders such as Hannah Yeoh, Theresa Kok, Ong Kiang Ming, Teo Ni Ching and many others.

I even suspect handsome boy Guan Eng to be among them.

Well, I hope some Pas people will leave their comments in this posting to refute what I wrote here.

It will be fun to read them go on the defense of their allies, the Christian Zionists of DAP.

Meanwhile, as Muslims elsewhere are preparing for Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the death toll in Gaza continues to increase and as at the moment I am writing this it stood at 762.

You can read about it here,

At least 15 killed by shelling of Gaza school; toll exceeds 760
