I am now at the Ayer Keroh RnR of the North-South Highway. Having an ice-blended cappuccino. On my way back to KL.
I don't know when I will come back to Johor again. It seems that I have no reason to be in Johor anymore.
My friend Ai had also cut short her break for the election and fly back to Taiwan last night.
She was so heart broken with what happened, especially the total rejection of the Chinese community in Gelang Patah towards their MB of 18 years Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman.
My other friend, Tinsel who took over Ai's blog BIGCAT had estimated that Ghani got less than 5 per cent of the Chinese votes in Gelang Patah. You can read it here Abandoned
My estimation, however, indicated that Ghani received even less than that from the Chinese community. ACTUALLY, IT IS LESS THAN 3 PER CENT.
Can you all just imagine that.
Ghani, who had served as MB so well and helped the Chinese community with all that he could for so many years being snubbed like that. All his works and friendship with those Chinese NGOs apparently doesn't count for anything to the Chinese of Gelang Patah.
I was told by my friends who are close with Ghani that he was till the final hours of polling, still believed that his Chinese friends in Gelang Patah, especially among the Chinese NGOs will never betray him.
But in the end, betrayed him, they did.
Ghani had actually expected he could get up to 30 per cent of the Chinese votes in Gelang Patah. He had hoped to secure a victory in the Chinese-majority constituency and prove to the rest of the country that the Chinese would accept a Malay with a good track-record like him as their leader. He had wanted so much to prove that his Chinese friends in Gelang Patah were real friends who will support him despite him being a Malay.
These Chinese of Gelang Patah whom Ghani had trusted so much are respected Chinese community leaders, leaders of temple associations, leaders of local Chinese social groups etc. Ghani had went out of his way to help them all in one way or another when he was a Menteri Besar.
Ghani had put up a dignified campaigning strategy and refused to be drawn into conflict with his rival. He didn't hold a single rally throughout the campaigning period in order to prevent the heated campaigning from reaching the boiling point. All he did was meet all his so-called "old friends" and appeal to them to give him their votes so that he may prevent the polarization of Malaysian society.
Of course, as it turned out, they are not his real friends.
They demanded what they want, take what were offered by Ghani and then they spit in his face.
Ai, before leaving last night, told me she wants to end her studies in Taiwan and come back to Malaysia. She said she has no motivation left to study the culture of a race which clearly despises someone like her.
Well, maybe Ai was being too emotional. But I can understand her sentiments. Maybe she will later cool down and reconsider.
By the way, Ai is not going to write her weekly posting in this blog anymore. She said she is done with blogging. She admitted that she was wrong for advocating a more Chinese-friendly BN government when she runs the BIGCAT blog. She said she now just want to continue with her life and does not want to care anymore about politics.
I didn't ask her whether she is still planning to marry her Chinaman.
Well, farewell dear Ai. Take care and may you find happiness.
sedih baca post ni. dengar cite ali rustam pun cuma dapat 1peratus undi kaum cina saja...ReplyDelete
They likened Ghani as amah, and no landlord should say "thank you".ReplyDelete
we ought to look for those landlords.
Where are the landlords?

Let the so called LANDLORDS rot in their own houses!!
Is this also happen to Orang Asli?Delete
Sekarang you baru tahu macam mana orang cina. saya sudah lama kenal orang cina dengan sedikit pengalaman pernah bekerja dengan mereka. pertama semasa saya dengan sebuah multinasional yang mana ramai pengurusan kanan adalah orang cina. kedua semasa saya dengan sebuah konglomerat tempatan kepunyaan orang cina.
ianya sudah dalam budaya mereka tidak peduli atau hormat kat orang lain. dalam mesyuarat bersama kakitang berbagai bangsa ada ketikanya mereka kan bercakap cina tanpa memperdulikan orang lain.
jangan mimpi untuk dapat undi mereka dalam pru 14 atau pru 15 walau apa pun yang najib atau bn buat.
Wrong, my MD is a singaporean chinese, he scolded other chinese managers who speak cantonese during meeting.Delete
good for your singaporean chinese.Delete
Sinkaporean chinese wants to speak Mandarin only. It shows you bull shit only. malaysian chinese speak Cantonese.Delete
18 good years of Ghani's life spent for the goodness of Johorians. Hundred of millions being spent modernizing Johor and what he gets now? He himself can't believe the hard reality befell on him that night on May 5th. A forlorn and crestfallen Ghani is a national tragedy.ReplyDelete
yes modernising - buying land cheaply from rakayt and reselling them high. People have to go overseas to work and comeback every day. The money is from Sinkapore $$.Delete
Then....you please relocate and seek Singapore PR status. Cina businesses do the same to non-Cina. Longer credit term to cina but shorter to no -cina. Sama jer. UngratefulDelete
Wrong, Ghani just enriched the Chinese.Delete
Look what you get when you feed the dog?
You are not anak Johor and you are a traitor to insult Ghani - during the election Ghani join the malaysians in a bus where thousands of johoreans have to travel to Sinkapore to work everyday. They bring back Sink $$$. They get S$2k there and they bring back is RM5k in Johore. They are helping UMNO State and Federal Governemnt.
With your stupidness, no wonder Ghani lost his election.
Bumi rear dogs? if not rear then whyfeed?
When you have summoned all your clan and 95% responded. When you fired all your salvo.ReplyDelete
You cannot put your energy down.
Rest assured we will be back, with a vengeance. The chinese has made many enemies this time.
Years from now the new generation chinese will curse LKS and DAP for ending the harmonious existence in this country. May it come sooner rather than later.
I curse you now.
What about bumis? What is the % of non-chinese supporting LKS? More than 3% or at least higher. Ask why more than 3% of them vote LKS. Please think hard on that which is the same situation as in Selangor. Why not ask why those non-chinese are ungrateful? When lost show sour face and say scour grapes. As usual, UMNO is not sporting and gentleman.
The bumis who vote for DAP is very few.Delete
In many cases it was Umno vs PKR or Umno vs PAS. Melayu vs melayu.
But chinese always vote against BN, doesn't matter what colour is the candidate.
In Raub, the chinese voted for the malay traitor against MCA candidate.
In Bukit Katil they voted for the malay PKR to oust Ali.
PR lagi not sporting and gentlemen, kalah GE terus mau protest GE tak validDelete
Faham - better party get more votes. PR gets more than 50% votes and BN get less. Chinese population less than 30% and more than 25% malay vote PR to get morethan 50% votes.Delete
I'm sad as well from KL.ReplyDelete
what betray you are talking about ???ReplyDelete
UMNO/BN has betrayed the Rakyat for the donkey year by enriching themselves!!
Aren't DAP/PR and PKR/PR in Penang and Selangor doing the same thing? Even Pas in Kedah and Kelantan too....and still the people voted for them...in fact the rakyat supported them, especially the Chinese, and the Chinese are know bribe promoters and active participants. And empty promises of free clean water, bla bla bla....so jangan jadi hipokrit lah Anonymous May 2013 18:07Delete
Enforcement Officers know how to cari makan and minta duit kopi. The boss of Sybas's 1 month salary is more then your 1 year pay.Delete
Not sure about ghani, but good riddance to umno scum like you and Ai. The reason he lost was because people rejected your brand of racist bullshit.ReplyDelete
Stupid Annie, UMNO has won big !!ReplyDelete
Now UMNO can have all 'UMNO Malay' cabinet minister for the first time in Malaysia history !!
Kaya-lah UMNO !!
The people like you that made us the moderate malay to fully supported umno. The alternative is even worst. Guess what umno increased their voice in parliment haha..Delete
umno is moderate and mature, the track record is the prove. despite being having most seats and what mca has decided, i'm confident that there will be representation from chinese in the new cabinet.. that's why i voted umno, for its moderation and maturity..Delete
UMNO has to listen to Kutty to put Perkasa ali and Zul in the electionDelete
Annie, is Helen okay?ReplyDelete
i keep refreshing her blog since last night but no new entry or moderated comments.
it's kind of weird.if you can check whether she's okay. if her blog is under attack?
i commented at Outsyed the box blog but he didnt moderate my comment huhu...
thanks a lot *o*
Sorry. I actually never met Helen or in contact with her except via our blog postings. She doesn't even know who I am. I think you should check with Rockybru instead.Delete
Malay Princess, I've been wondering the same about Helen, too. Senyap je her blog, no movement of posts and even comments. I hope she is okay.Delete
Time when we needed help, those who count as friend does at times stab our back. But if we allow our pain to color and paint our eyes, then we are no better than them. Times like this, I believe the Malay way of doing things is still lies in what he believe his Maruah. It is a sign of good men that he holds his maruah, and give out his helping hand even if he is spit and cursed. Because in the end, everything will die and forgotten but not his deed. The Chinese will maybe, I hope maybe will be able to see the good deeds of the men they had backstab. Even if its late, it is still worth it.
You think you help everyone - 60K people in the parliament seat? How many people have you help? Why Syed and few get big contracts and the rest just bones and leftovers? You think give leftovers are helping people and they vote you? This means you are not treating people fairly and when the time come, you expect one to repay? Sure repay you with unfairness.Delete
dont forget francis yeoh, uncle lim, vincent tan and etc.Delete
are u nuts? see the list of 10 ten of malaysian billionaire? how many malays? do u think the chinese tycoons doesnt get any projects from gov. WRONG!Delete
imagine if they fail to get any projects in the future.....
For all we know, these chinese billionaires may be secretly funding DAP?Delete
We never know, but we know that, malay can never trust chinese again, just like we never trust jews.
if a chinese smile, we smile back,
if they talk to you nicely, we talk back
But never trust them, never
Francis, Uncle Lim, Tony support and gives $$$ to UMNO. UMNO say about gratefulness and they help UMNo.Delete
Syed may secretly give $ to PR to get small favour if PR form the government. we never know.
Same with your wife, son, father, brothers, sisters close friends and even Annie and her chinese mother and Big cat chinese boy friend. They may secretly vote PR. You better not to trust them for making UMNO lost.
As usual...its always you are wrong mine is right.... I've been thinking at which age does Ahmad knows that Ah Chong will betray him although they were schooling together since standard 1 . Is at at the age of 15, 18 or when they can vote? Our kids have been to school together. Don't let them be blind by the color of their skin.ReplyDelete
If bumis vote for PKR or PAs and they win over UMNO, they are ungrateful too for the government who gets money from our income tax to pay their salary(why Malaysia not follow Brunei and other muslim countries like Saudi need not to pay income tax)? UMNO think of master and slave relationship. Why spend millions on election? Why not Malaysia follows Communist North Korea? Why call our country democratic and freedom?ReplyDelete
I would love to if this country were to br like North Korea and YES we can force the ungrateful Chinese to eat shit everyday....Delete
Good to become North Korea and bye bye to Islamic State and forget about Almighty?Delete
Like I said before, hit these bloody Chinese scums where it hurts.ReplyDelete
Today I had lunch at a Malay beriani resto and suddenly a group of chinese diners walked in. No big deal before but today all the Malays at the other table looked at them in disgust. So much so they really didn't enjoy their meal and were surprisingly quiet and subdued.
They will be taught a lesson in betrayal. Their lives will never be the same and they will pay for underestimating the malays.
Don't waste time and just ignore the swines trying to stir shit in your blog. The movement has started and they will not know what hit them.
In election, our votes are secret and everyone betray each other. BN and PR 50% votes.Delete
you dont even understand what is called a democracy elections where voters can elect whoever we want to represent us come election year. Whoever we wanna vote is up to us and that's why it's call free elections.Now we have people like you and those people in UMNO whining about ungrateful and rotten chinese for not voting them.In a democracy the people have a choice of wanting who they want to vote for and nobody can criticize their choices. And the winning party have to look after the people that vote against them too because they are also citizens of that country and these people pay taxes too. They have the right to choose who they want to be run the country.Now we have people like you and others in BN telling the government not to look after the chinese because they are ingrates.
Darn..tell that to the british that gave us the parlimantary democracy system and they will probably roll in their graves...lol
They will have a hard time telling who voted for Labour and who for the Conservatives and not to service who..and the British people keep on changing between the two..lol
If you people wanna have a system like this you have to face these kind of situations where the people can change their taste of government as they wishes and be mature about it.If not then just go back to absolute monarchy where there will be no elections.
Grow up please
Yes, we loved to go back to absolute monarchy.Delete
It is much easier to deal with you scum and the malay traitors.
If you people wanna have a system like this you have to face these kind of situations where the people can change their taste of government as they wishes and be mature about <--- you may need to tell Anwar that. People do NOT vote his party into party and he still wants to change the GE result by force.Delete
UMNO and PAS will combine their votes in Parliament to introduce Hudud and abolish vernacular schools.
So don't blame the Malays if they use their full force of democracy against the Chinese.
And the Malays will tell the Chinese exactly the same thing, " Grow up please, this is democracy".
Anon 22.47 - absolute monanrchy - good then goes back to North Borneo and Sarawak as a country before 1967 forming malaysia.Delete
The situation is different now. Back then when I was growing up, malay n chinese were one community. At least in my kampung, in a rural area in Terengganu. My arwah dad was literally raised by a chinese family. Nowadays, it's a different story. All I can say is I dont trust most of them now.ReplyDelete
Annie... apa lu mahu lagi ?????ReplyDelete
UMNO Malay akan dilantik jadi menteri dlm kerajaan malaysia, semua menteri pon Melayu, apa mahu lagi !!
we want sincere cooperation with the Chinese. You guys never let go of the notion that UMNO wants Malay supremacy when that was NEVER the case.Delete
Correct - ketuanan over Orang Alsi, Dayaks, Ibans and bumis in North Borneo and Sarawak?Delete
If voters think that Ghani dont deserve to win based on his own merits, then what more conclusion can we come to except its was purely based on racists sentiment? Whats all this talk about merit based when they can't even attempt to try this to show the way.ReplyDelete
Elections are about selecting future leaders not for expressing gratitude. We have awards and Datukship for that.
It's true the so-called herd mentality of Chinese has pushed them into seeking refuge within their communities. That's what they do best, in hard times they stick together. I wasn't surprised Chinese votes have abandoned BN in droves because seriously do you really think this is news issue?
The seed was sown in 2004 when absolute arrogance kicked in when BN won in a landslide. Ultra Malays in UMNO started putting forth their supremacist agendas forward making Chinese and Indians appear small and insignificant.
Meanwhile we Malays, in good and bad times we still find the occupy ourselves to pick fights with our own brothers and races instead of empowering our people in greater height.
The situation will correct itself, Chinese will start warming up to BN gradually but only if these right wing racist dinosaurs in UMNO are suppressed.
This is not what Islam teaches us. Part of parcel of a being a Islamic nation is peace for it allows us to serve Allah. What good come from by us stirring racial tension?
Dato' Ghani lost not because of Chinese do not appreciate him but look at the large picture, what do Dato' Ghani stands for, that keris symbol of a soon-to-be Malay ultra supremacist party.
We are deluded to think this is Chinese being ungrateful lot. We could have never been so wrong.
UMNO has clipped many of its old cumbersome dinosaurs, and will continue to do better if only you'd have faith.Delete
If you want to see the big picture as you asked us to do with Ghani Othman, when what do DAP stand for? A party that fights for Chinese cause.
If people have truly wanted a corrupt-free leader who will serve the people, they would've chosen Ghani based on his track record.
Kit Siang may say he fights for anti-corruption, but what development has he really brought for any constituency he stands in?
You have to really think about that. Deeply.
Karpal Singh, Charles Santigo and all Indian aduns and MPs in DAP fight for chinese. Please go and examine your head.Delete
Taxpayers pay money to Federal UMNO Government as required by law but federal government did not give money to PR and DAP MPs. No money how to have development. Even Kelantan Malays are trying to get money from UMNo Government. Can rakyat give tax money to their Mps and Adun?
Meritocracy has nothing to do with the Chinese sentiments in Gelang Patah. Ghani contributed so much to the people of Gelang Patah...Uncle Lim who just parachuted in: NIL. So if it's not racism, what is it?ReplyDelete
"I didn't ask her whether she is still planning to marry her Chinaman."ReplyDelete
Chinaman voted DAP ?
Ai found out Chinaman attended DAP ceramah ?
or Chinaman refuses to potong ???
Will Annie not talk to her chinese mother and eat her cooked food?Delete
Also Annie is half chinese. Which part of her can be trusted?
It often takes an outsider to rattle an internal harmony. It's about divide and conquer, and racism is a tool. The loss of Ghani should serve as a reminder to us, the Malays, of the importance of unity. Take a look at our weaknesses and improve them, and use our competence to strengthen our future. Together, we will prevail.ReplyDelete
What was shown was that it is easy to stir up the emotion to win a battle but will it be enough to sustain a war.Delete
Will it last till GE14?
Surely the malays will fight back, politically and economically. When the economic realities hits the chinese, will they be as united as they are today?
Generally, there are a lot of kesedaran melayu around but as Tun M said, Melayu mudah lupa.
The next 5 years will be interesting.
In the course of next 5 years, UMNO and PAS will mend their rift and will form one block. Some PKR malays will leave PKR to be BN friendly.ReplyDelete
Malay youth will be indoctrinated that chinese are common enemies.
Malays leadership will take hardline stand based on Islam and they will be a formidable force in GE14.
In Selangor, State Seat won by;ReplyDelete
DAP = 15
PAS = 15
PKR = 14
Wonder why it takes them so, so long to decide who should be MB.
I heard Azmin wants to be MB.
Azizah wants Khalid to continue as MB.
But...PKR is short by one seat.
By right, PAS should be MB.
Or have 2 MB. (PAS = 1st.MB and PKR 2nd.MB) Salary x 2, therefore waste Rakyat's money.
DAP cannot, because no Malay MP (Also must be Selangor borne. If in Pahang, for sure Arif Sabri aka SangMongkol will be MB).
Option: 'buy' 1 @ 2 UMNO MP to jump ship over (katak), and become PKR friendly?
If not, PAS gets to be MB. Remember Perak? PAS give cousins Ngeh & Nga, timberland as concession for MB seat.
If PAS becomes MB, will Hudud be implemented. Will they close down that beer brewing plant in Shah Alam?
Kedah former MB was known to have ordered close down a pig slaughter-house when he just took over. Odered restriction on karaoke and pleasure joint during Ramadhan. Only school girls are allowed to dance and must wear decent clothing on Chap Goh Mei festival. Poster of women wearing mini-skirt is forbidden.
Oh my God.
How to govern a state like this. Always quarrel and politicking among themselves. What about clean water supply? What about fighting corruption? What about thrash collection?
How to implement manifesto. Old one also cannot fulfilled.
By the way, I'm living in Selangor.
So RD oppose huduh to enjoy kara OKay and urut tradition and watch cewek in their jeans and tank clothes.Delete
Why BN and sybas is quiet about water supply and sekarang semua ok about water supply.
