Othman Wok, a Singapore Malay horror story
I did some reading on this guy Othman Wok and I can't help but to conclude that he is the typical Malay lackey.
The only real talent that such a Malay posses is on how to excessively kiss asses and slandering others to promote himself.
Here is among the articles written about Othman Wok,
Othman Wok Seperti Anwar Ibrahim Gadai Identiti Bangsa
Veteran blogger and journalist Zainuddin Maidin in a post three years ago described Othman Wok as
ORANG PAP BERSEMBUNYI DI UTUSAN MELAYU
The Malay lackeys are the type of Melayu who reminds me of Malcom X's "house negroes and field negroes" theory.
If Othman Wok is an African American of Malcolm X era, then he would be a house negro.
A house negro loves his white master more than the white master loves himself.
As a reward, a house negro gets to live in the mansion to serve his master, wear better clothes than the field negroes who work on the cotton fields and eat better food too, whatever left eaten by his master.
Othman Wok fares better than that though, he got to be a minister (though the portfolio was not so great), and became board of directors member of several companies after retiring from politics.
I actually know quite a number of Malays like Othman Wok.
They make a living by kissing the ass of their non-Malay bosses and going out of their way to run down other Malays to please their non-Malay masters.
Ini jenis manusia yang orang Melayu kata tak ada maruah dan khianat, atau dalam bahasa kasarnya barua.
living by kissing the ass of their non-Malay bosses and going out of their way to run down other Malays to please their non-Malay masters. Whatabout Malays kisisng Malays Leader ass and going out their way to run other prominent and talented Malays leaders to pelase their own desire!.ReplyDelete
This is called kaki liwat da....Delete
Siapa yang barua Annie. Kasihan orang tua ni, Annie and the gang condemn cukup-cukup, sedangkan you all never ever seen him face to face before. Janganlah kita judge yang buruk saja. Othman Wok is a nice guy in town just like Tunku, you know.Delete
Tunku pun tak dapat penghormatan daripada Dr M, begitu juga mungkin Najib pun tak akan hormat kepada Dr M. Kita mestilah melatih diri kita dengan nilai-nilai kemanusian. Semoga negara kita terhindar dari mala petaka. Cuba you all baca disini.
Othman Wok akan terus diberi penghormatan walau pun sahabat karibnya LKY telah pergi dahulu.
re , Iactually know quite number of Malays like Othman Wok.
There are uncountable number of Malays like Othman Wok or the type of Othman Wok nowadays . the irony is that many of them with political power and hold power but the reality is, they act's or seen like under the thumb's of non Malay .
Unlike the house negro , who are binds to the mansion's ,this Malays run's all over the country to enrich the and pleased them , forgetting that , the Malays had put their trust in them politically or constitutionally ,but they serve otherwise .
Melayu sekarang ,memang sudah hilang maruah , mungkin kerana mereka sundah pandai makan bugger dan chak kueah tiaw dan dah lupa makan belacan.
Aiseh, man...how many Singaporean Malay-Muslims do you actually know?Delete
How many of them have voiced a fondness for the ways things are done in Malaysia and have translated that into concrete and tangible actions?
Such as, say, sending their kids to study in BM medium of instruction "national schools" in Malaysia? Or by taking up Malaysian PR status or switching passports?
And the "house negro" label is a tad offensive, don't you think?
Maybe the Asian-Americans doing better in the US than African-Americans or Hispanics might have stirred up unwelcome notions how immigrant communities generally outperform the in-situ population!
Not that I am drawing any comparisons, of course!
Mat Sabu adalah salah seorang daripada barua zaman moden ini.ReplyDelete
Ketua beliau dalam Party PAS, di panggil pengkhianat oleh Lim Guan Eng pun beliau tak marah.
Masa ahli politik UMNO itu menjadi TPM,
Mat Sabu bersama Karpal Singh tergamak menuduh TPM itu seorang Peliwat, di Parliament dan di gelar TPM itu sebagai Al-Juburi.
Setelah TPM itu dipecat dari UMNO dan menjadi 'rakan' politiknya dan dihadapkan ke mahkamah kerana salah-guna kuasa dan liwat, tuduhan yang beliau sendiri mulakan, dia boleh buat-buat lupa dan mereka menjadi rakan karib.
Suata masa du, demi mempertahankan Lim Guan Eng, Mat Sabu kata dia sanggup makan babi. Hari ini, setelah tidak lagi menjadi Ahli Parlimen, Lim Guan Eng memberikan Mat Sabu jawatan Pengarah di Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang. Dia bukan tahu apa-apa pasal Air. Pasal Airmani, terror la.
If you say that he is a BARUA supporting pap,
Can you list down the malay BARUAS supporting dap.
Let us put their name in Malaysian history so that their ANAK CUCU find out who their grandfathers are.....
The Malay BARUAS in Malaysia are the father of all BARUAS...
Those supporting DAP or a card carrying member, cannot be branded as barua yet, especially the young one. When MONEY is supreme, there where all the juice are. DAP is the richest political Party in Malaysia as it is gaining strength. UMNO is already saturated with millionaires. Therefore, DAP is the better place to get rich young.Delete
They might be useful, some day as agent or spy. Even that Raub MP can come in handy, where there is a hung Parliament.
Only history will tell whether one is a barua or not. Except, of-course Mat Sabu. He is quite old and can be considered history already, if he cannot succeed Haji Hadi Awang as PAS President.
Othman Wok a barua? No,no,no Kak Annie. He's worse than that. I bet my one month salary that he's also not a good Muslim (assuming he sees himself as one) and he's definitely didn't see himself as a Melayu obviously. What kind of delusional self-serving anak haram like Othman Wok, who kept on slandering someone who'd already passed away and cannot defend himself like Allahyarham Samad Said? I think this Othman Wok has taken LKY's words too seriously, ie. LKY once said that if something is not right in singapore, he'll rise from his grave. Dia takut sgt dgn tuan dia tu, bila dah mati pon masih tercirit2 puji2 tuan dia dgn fitnah org lain. Or maybe Othman is considering to write a better, grandier ghost story?
Like you Kak, I also know quite a number of melayu bangsat like Othman Wok. Well, unfortunately Malaysia is practically littered with these kind of melayu bangsat, you know the kind who are not intelligent at all, all out to please their bosses, jadi jurucakap/jurujual and eager to enrich themselves by sacrificing other malays' interest by abusing power. Yang sibuk jual tanah rakyat konon untuk pembangunan pun ramai, and unfortunately in your home state lah ada antara yang paling rakus Kak Annie. I always wonder how do these people sleep at night.
Oh well, enough ranting in the morning. I sincerely hope that this Othman Wok will drop dead soon, ie before singapore's 50th Birthday. And when he's dead, all his sins will force the ground to reject him (assuming there's enough in singapore) and he'll have to roam the HDB flats as a skeleton with a wig. Rot in hell Othman.
Jangan lah kafir-mengkafir pula. Tak baik demi perpaduan Umat. Nanti jadi macam di Syria dan kebanyakan negara Arab, siapa yang rugi?Delete
Er, when did I actually "kafir-mengkafir"? Secondly, arabs tend to fight each other because they seems to have that tendencies to do so kan? Tak lama lepas Nabi wafat pun diorang dah start bergaduh sakan. I'm not a PAS member, so I don't go around "kafir-mengkafir". Thanks.Delete
Ooh, Pwincess - got our knickers in a twist, have we? Or just having a bad hair day?Delete
It is ironic that you write about "Melayu Bangsat". I presume that you have in mind Singaporean Malay-Muslims who have bought into the Singapore Pledge, meritocracy etc that define Singapore?
The irony is that most Singapore Malay-Muslims are comfortable in Singapore. They are progressing up the economic ladder without handouts, quotas or special privileges.
Would you regard the Malaysian Malays who work in Singapore (reportedly there are few hundreds of them who commute daily across the Causeway) as being unpatriotic in seeking to earn a living in a country that some quarters believe discriminates against it's ethnic minorities?
You can't have it both ways.

What's wrong with you? Spinning things around like that? Don't do a YTL-esque kind of sermon la. Read again la or are you a deluded myopic idiot? I wrote about Othman Wok and his stupid actions, and why he deserves being label "melayu bangsat" by Pwincess.
Secondly, I didn't write anything nor did I label the whole singaporean malays as "melayu bangsat", you did that or at least spun it in such a way. Of course singapore-malays are comfortable in singapore, they wouldn't say otherwise right? Just because Othman Wok is an idiot, does not necessarily mean that they are idiots too.
Why would I want to regard Malaysians who work in singapore, whether they are Malays or not as being unpatriotic? It's their choice. In fact, I bet my two months salary that if such opportunities are available to them in Johor, they would rather not commute on a daily basis to singapore right? And yet in Johor, most projects are high-end properties and not industries, financial services or other type of industries that can provide sources of employment (please also read my other comments to you below). So why would I want to label Malaysians, be them Malays or not, who work overseas to earn a living and not just in singapore, as being unpatriotic?
Which country that actually some quarters believed discriminates against its (not 'it's' by the way, go get some grammar lesson) ethnic minorities? Get a recent copy of Forbes magazine (which is of course not run by Utusan Melayu) and tell me if such discrimination exists, how is it possible for 90% of so called "second-class citizens" dominated top-20 spot of Malaysian billionaires? Bengong punya komen.
I agree with pwincess, she got many good points. Plus, it seems she's more pissed-off with melayu bangsat in malaysia. Non-card-member carrying red beans should stop twisting things around meh.desperado lorr.Delete
Many Singaporean Malays have migrated overseas. This goes to show how happy they are with the Chinese controlled gomen in Singapore. I happen to know a number of them here in the US. Pwince, don't lie!Delete
RATS & BARUAS ! PLEASE STAY AWAYDelete
The late Pak Samad had plenty of opportunities to defend himself against those accusations.Delete
If I remember right, those accusations against him were made in the runup to the merger negotiations between Singapore and Malaysia.
Pak Samad could have taken those who made the accusations to court. He could have demanded to see the relevant Special Branch files from that time. He could have faced his accusers and cross-examined them in open court.
He chose not to do any of the above. Why is something known only to himself.
If Othman Wok was privy to the same intelligence briefings about the then Communist conspiracy in Singapore and Malaysia, then he is entitled to have his say.
You cannot denigrate freedom of expression when it goes against you!
Isn't that something you understand, Pwincess?
#Anon 27 March 20:21Delete
What sort of chop-socky logic is this?
I can claim that I know of many Malaysian Malays who have migrated to Australia, the UK, New Zealand and Canada. And, yes, to Singapore too.
So, who is lying, eh?
I'd read what Tun Dr. M wrote recently in his blog about late LKY. Despite their differences and sabre-rattling, Tun Dr. M didn't write nasty things about LKY. Othman Wok have no qualms to continue making allegations against a dead man like Pak Samad. That says a lot about a bloody brown-nosing opportunist bangsat like Othman Wok and I feel sorry for his family.Delete
A Farsighted TuankuReplyDelete
Declaration by the Johor ruler, Sultan Ibrahim Ismail Sultan Iskandar: Singaporeans living in Johor will mark the way forward for the state.
"Once the (Johor-Singapore) links are in place, it will become the norm for Singaporeans to live in Johor and work in Singapore. That is the future," the monarch said in an interview with The Star last week.
In dismissing the possibility of a property glut in southern Johor, Sultan Ibrahim used London as an example, where he said 80 percent of properties are owned by foreigners.
Maybe the Sultan thinks that Malaysia has been left far behind by Singapore and with not much hope of the present government to reach the status like Singapore in the foreseeable future , it's about time the Tuanku does things his way in the hope that at least Johor will be prosperous riding on the success of Singapore. I think this Sultan and his advisers are very smart and already have a grand plan to take Johor forward and who knows maybe in years to come Johor will be the most develop and richest state in Malaysia.Delete
I also hope that in the future Johoreans can also live in Singapore and work in Johor. Or just migrate to Singapore for good and rent out their properties in Johor to people from China. Better still, if there are more employment opportunities especially in high-skilled industries in Johor rather than just servicing wealthy foreigners, more Johoreans can stop the arduous daily commutes to Singapore. Not to mention their CPF contributions.Delete
As for properties in London being seized by foreigners, most notably from Europe, just look at the socioeconomic repercussions. Locals are not impressed as they're being priced-out. In fact, Chancellor George Osborne said last year that the Treasury has to be "vigilant" as property prices continue to increase due to foreign influence. Have you ever wondered why nationalist political parties seems to gain more support in the UK?
Who benefitted from those development and richest? No one but the foreigners, chinese and bangsawan malays.Delete
#Pwincess 27 March 13:35Delete
Let's hope that the Johor State government and the Federal government can work together to get more "high end" and "strategic" investments into Johor, instead of more and more real estate projects.
We don't want to see all the good investments (aerospace, electronics, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals etc) and the good jobs they generate going mainly to Singapore, do we?
It won't help if we tag these foreign investors who favour Singapore with the "bangsat" label....lol.
Seriously, I think that Tuanku is making a lot of sense.
The Hong Kong-Shenzhen connection comes to mind.
Pwince 27 March 2015 at 15:48,Delete
Yes they should. Why can't they build more industry in Johor rather than just houses, oversea campuses of foreign schools and universities etc.? Most mega-projects down south-seems to serve only as habitats, to create living spaces for foreigners especially those who would be working in singapore. More and more projects involving "hartanah mampu tengok" which I doubt normal Johoreans can actually afford to buy. But then again, just look at the RAPID project in Pengerang, it's some of the locals who have problems with it and yet singapore is also building almost similar capability across the causeway.
Most good investments involving high-tech and good-jobs already going to singapore. Pharmaceuticals, energy, etc. all working well in singapore due to their policies and we cannot blame them for that. They'll be able to do a lot of good work there and then drive back to Johor to live in expensive properties (possibly also guarded by a foreign security company). What would be the spillover effects to empower the locals? Money? How about knowledge and other skills? singapore has been very good in tapping the knowledge, skills and also connections brought in by foreigners who work in singapore. But then it also cost the PAP several parliamentary seats when the singaporeans are fed-up with foreigners pushing everything upwards and they felt sidelined. Can anyone guarantee that the same thing wouldn't happen in Johor in the future?
Why would we want to tag foreign investors who bring capital and technological know-how to singapore as "bangsat"? They are not tin kosong like that Othman Wok. They went to singapore because it makes sense to do so but the important question is, why can't Johor attract them too rather than just providing expensive houses?
By the way, both Hong-Kong and Shenzhen are in China, the same country. And Beijing is also careful to make sure Shanghai is also developing and possibly one day surpass Hong Kong.
'They went to singapore because it makes sense to do so but the important question is, why can't Johor attract them too rather than just providing expensive houses?'Delete
That's because unlike Singapore which is very transparent in their dealings with foreign investors, our government are burden with redtapes like cronies and corrupted officials from bottom to top. So who wanna set up business here?
You're correct to point out about the relative transparency in singapore. Just look at some of those projects in johor which didn't even get environmental impact assessment approvals. singapore is right to question about the environmental impact as it'll affect them too.
In chinese terms we call them running dogs for the government. Here in Malaysia the scenario is different. We have the chinese becoming lackeys for the the Umno government which are malays in exchange for ikan bilis ministerial posts but have no real power and just kowtow to what the Umno leaders say. I guess is just which side of the fence you are sitting on to accuse who is a barua or a running dog...ReplyDelete
Moderate Malays hanya lah satu alasan bagi mereka yang tidak mahu mengikuti suruhan agama kerana lebih sukakan dunia. Lihat saja cara hidup mereka, yang jelas tertipu dengan dugaan syaitan dan merugikan.ReplyDelete
Blogger bangang also sell their souls to barua UMNO cheebais. What's the difference? In the last 500 years, how many melayus were not for sale?ReplyDelete
Annie, Well Done!ReplyDelete
In Malaysia, Malays have been duped by the "bangsa, agama dan Negara" Malays. Having attained power they went on the enrich themselves and become kleptocrats, throwing morsels back to the Malays who put them on the political pedestral. At the end of the day, that is what Malays will end up be. Just watch how the Ketua-Ketua bahagians suck up to Najib. How many local Malay leaders actually speak for the ordinary Malays? Anyway, if you are contended with rumah rakyat, then don't get a hissy fit over rumah mampu lihat. Happy to note that HRH has envisaged Singaporeans moving moving and staying in Johor Bahru. Salute to the wise decision.ReplyDelete
When you wrote "Malay leaders", I trust that you didn't restrict that phrase to just Malay politicians. At least with the politicians, we can vote them out. Pak Lah was shown the door previously. Basically, Malays in Malaysia are being f**ked right, left, top, bottom and center. Plus, please also do not exclude "Raja" as in "Bangsa, Agama dan Negara", it's part of our Rukun Negara.Delete

Having singaporeans moving to JB is a wise decision? Sure, so in return locals in JB can start moving to Mersing or Endau. Maybe a house or a flat in Endau is cheaper than a car plate number.

Just wondering why any malays here want to mourn LKY'S demise? He is gone, shed no tears, time to move on.ReplyDelete
Hmm...perhaps you should have advised the PM & some of his Cabinet members not to go down to Singapore to pay their last respects to LKY.Delete
But they did.
And the Deputy PM said nice things about LKY.
What further advice are you going to give them?
HRH The Yang di-Pertuan Agong, The Sultan of Johor, the Sultan of Kelantan, PM Najib, Deputy PM Muhyiddin, Tun Daim Zainuddin....even Tun Dr Mahathir.Delete
Not to mention the Indonesian VVIPs - President Jokowi, VP Kalla, former President SBY, Megawati Sukarnoputri, Prabowo Subianto.....
Seems to me a lot of VVIPs are paying their last respects to LKY.
So what are you blathering on about?
From Joyce Hooi's commentary "By gum, the West is wrong about Singapore" (btd.sg/missannthrope), published in the Singapore Business Times today:ReplyDelete
"Likewise, this is Singapore. Everyone is in a hurry and they will hold pre-briefings for briefings, a post-briefing after and a break for a cost-benefit analysis. This is Singapore, this is what made it great. This is also why I became a citizen of this country - because I got tired of "charm".....
"Today, the prevailing attitude is miles away from Mr Lee's hard-driving, survivalist one. Now, people want to trade a few percentage points of GDP growth for the balance of work and life, as though work were not part of life. They want a softer approach to this idea of competition or betterment, a more consensual form of government.
"What the people want, the people will eventually get - that is both the beauty and the horror of democracy.
"And such has been the earlier success of Singapore that its people have the middle-class wherewithal to demand change, and the government has the resources to provide it.
"Like many other migrants, I came here to escape corruption, injustice and water that came out of the taps brown in colour. I came here because I understood this to be a place that rewarded industry and ability while tolerating - if not welcoming - extreme dorkiness.
"I've had the luxury of being able to mind my own business, largely because the government has minded everyone's. This is not for everyone, I'm sure, and as Singaporeans clamour for more self-determination, they will get it, if only because 'tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis'
"I have my reservations about what this country will become, but as for how it came to be, my appreciation is unequivocal, without qualification and unreserved. Thank you, Mr Lee, for Singapore. There was nothing more you could have done."
(Ms Hooi is a journalist with the Singapore Business Times).
Oh, oh....let us guess which country Ms Hooi originally hailed from.Delete
She's given enough clues in her commentary.
"...escape corruption, injustice and water that came out of the taps brown in colour....this to be a place that rewarded industry and ability....".
