What's wrong with Dong Zong explaining themselves?

So, they stopped the Dong Zong's congress because people protested against it.

I think that's silly.

The Chinese educationists were trying to explain why they were against the teaching of Jawi/Khat at the Chinese schools.

I say, let them speak their mind.

Whether they make sense or not, doesn't really matter.

Whatever it is, I don't think they are going to insult people of other races or anything like that.

By right, we all should have freedom of speech. That includes the Dong Zong people.

If they want to explain their stand, we should let them do so.

Why must others got all so worked up?

We shouldn't get angry with people who are trying to explain themselves.

Anyway, I think I have been consistent about this.

Let the Chinese schools remain as they are.

Don't force people to learn unnecessary things that they don't want to learn.

If anything, it's their loss, not ours.

No need to sibuk-sibuk, okay.

This whole nonsense started when the education ministry wanted to introduce the khat in schools, including the Chinese ones.

It's I think a follow up to that Pribumi Bersatu-initiated congress where they among others proposed for the closure of vernacular schools, which in this case I believe was targeted mostly at Chinese schools.

It's a case of Pribumi Bersatu trying to be more Malay than Umno and Pas.

Stupid politicians.

Well, never mind lah.

I just want to stress that as far as people explaining themselves, I'm all for it.

Even if the explanation doesn't make sense.

As long as what were said do not break the law, I think it's okay.

Next time people want to say something and other people complained, are we going to stop them from speaking?

Ya, so much for freedom of speech and expression in Malaysia Baru.

As if people have no choice

I had this conversation the other day with an Umno leader about the prospect of BN winning the next general election.

He was confident of victory saying that the Malays have now realised of their mistake in GE14.

In reply, I told him that it's more important for Malay LEADERS to realise their mistakes.

For me, GE14 was not the fault of Malays but that of their leaders.

Malay leaders failed to lead, causing their community to be divided and became weak, enabling others to dictate things to them.

I really don't blame the Malays who switched their votes from BN to Pakatan in GE14.

BN leaders, particularly in Umno failed to convince them at that time not to believe in Dr Mahathir and gang.

Why did they fail?

Arrogance and overconfidence.

They never even bothered to properly explain the issues raised by Pakatan, expecting the people to simply believe in whatever they shoved at them.

Worse, they and their agents were arrogant about it, being so cock sure that the people have no choice but to vote for them again.

Take it or leave it. You are with us or against us. That's the attitude.

They failed to realise that the people have feelings too.

People hate arrogant people.

That's to me was the story of GE14.

BN lost because it failed to address the sentiment of the people because its leaders and their agents were too arrogant to do so.

Maybe they were even too lazy to do so. And of course their fucked ups and other stupid shits.

"We don't care about sentiments, we only care about facts," one of them said to me back then.

Yup, and BN lost because of that.

The people just said "Fuck your facts, we despise arrogant pricks like you all" and voted Pakatan.

And now that things are all screwed up under Pakatan's rule, some of those BN leaders and their agents are saying "Padan muka kamu semua sebab pangkah Pakatan. Siapa suruh jadi bodoh."

Obviously GE14 had not cured their arrogance.

They thought the recent strings of BN's by-election victories were purely because the people are again turning to support them because of no choice in face of Pakatan's broken promises and poor governance.

I have been on the ground during the by-elections and I'm quite sure the people had not voted BN because they want to support these arrogant Umno leaders and their agents.

Yes, they were unhappy with Pakatan but they also see some hope in a better Umno when the very likable and down to earth Mat Hasan acted as its president in Cameron Highlands, Semenyih and Rantau.

Similarly, Tanjung Piai, for me, was won largely because of the tactical brilliance and good leadership of the quiet yet efficient Datuk Hasni of Johor Umno.

Still, the arrogant people in Umno are reemerging, claiming credit for BN's good showing.

And they are back at their nonsense again, to the point of even trying to kick aside those who actually have been winning support back for BN and Umno.

I have been hearing a lot of their nonsense of late and I'm tired of them. That's another reason why I have not been writing as regularly as I used to be.

Simply meluat.

If someone like me can get tired of them, I can just imagine how an ordinary folk, especially one with no political affiliation feel when presented with their arrogance.

Do people really have no choice?

I believe they still do have.

It's now up to especially Umno to learn from their past mistakes, failing which the people will reject them again despite Pakatan's failings.

Really, why it's so hard for some of them to be nice to win over the heart and mind of the people?

Can't Umno just get rid of the arrogant people among them, or at least not allow them to become the face of their party?

Well, writing the above was quite tiring, actually.

I honestly wish I could write something else but felt I have to get that out of my chest.

Now that's done I feel better.

Okay, enough lah. Here's something to cheer me and you all up a bit,

Hope you all enjoyed that. Have a good Sunday.

A bit on the Azilah's SD and Media Prima retrenchments

Yesterday there was that SD by former policeman Azilah that he received order from Najib to kill Mongolian lady Altantuya.

After so long.

Why didn't Azilah, who is now on death row, said that back then or at least right after Pakatan won and Najib was kicked out from the seat of power?

Don't know lah. Personally I don't care much about SDs. So many made in the past which turned out to be bullshit.

Whatever it is, Najib had rubbished it.

But I think AG Tommy Thomas will act on the SD.

For what comes next, we simply have to wait and see.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Still, I think BN, particularly Umno need to do something to counter this latest move to undermine its recovery effort.

Personally, I think leaders should know when they become a liability and give way so that they don't drag down the party with them.

Innocent or guilty doesn't matter. Once a leader can't handle a personal issue which affect the party, he/she should leave. At least until he has cleared his name.

I have actually been bitching about this since the Shahrizat's lembu condo controversy several years ago.

Well, another disturbing news yesterday was the announcement about the retrenchment of over 500 NSTP staff.

I guess things must have been very bad for the company.

Or is it just a strategy to get rid of unwanted people?

Well, more to come as Media Prima, which is the parent company planned to get rid of more people at its other media outlets.

I wrote about the organisation in the past

Media Prima at war

A bit more on the Media Prima war

Media Prima after the civil war

I guess it's a vicious cycle.

I feel so sorry for the young journalists who lost their job there.

But not so much for their seniors who were involved in the "war".

You did bad things to people, bad things will happen to you. You did good things to people, good things will happen to you.

Yup, you kicked people out back then, now other people kick you out too.

Whatever it is, I believe that everything that comes our way is part of Allah's will and we have to accept it with an open heart.

If we are patient and steadfast, insyaAllah things will get better.

Hopefully those who lost their jobs will get new ones soon.

Hopefully, there will not be too many of these retrenchments during this hard time.

More interesting and pressing things than politics

Someone scolded me yesterday for not updating this blog.

Ya, it's been a week.

Actually I've became obsessed with something and of late been spending most of my free time on it instead of writing.

It's something more interesting than politics, definitely.

Well, never mind.

What I have been missing so far?

There's the intensifying PKR fight.

Looks like Anwar's chance of becoming PM has really faded.

Without Azmin and gang, he definitely wouldn't have the number to topple Dr Mahathir in parliament.

I just can't see how they can reconcile after all the nonsense and sex videos.

But all that had been discussed quite extensively by others, so I don't think I have to add to it.


I'm actually itching to write on what I know about Umno's current state of affairs but I think I better let them try to sort it out quietly among themselves.

Better than having a public punch up like PKR.

Other interesting things....well this is an interesting (but I think rather obscure) story:


“How do they smuggle it out of Malaysia? They declare it as clay when in fact it is rare-earth which has been precipitated,” said a source, adding that the activity had been going on for quite a while.
It is also believed that the syndicate had been in cahoots with a local company to smuggle the mineral to China.
Another source said the runoff from the mining at the jungle area is disposed into a nearby river.
The authorities are however tight-lipped.
Crazy stuff.

Hopefully the authorities will really do something about it and make it public.

People make so much noise over Lynas, but that one is even worse.

Really, this is among things more important to be taken care of than making Anwar the new PM.

People need a good government to take care of the country and not a washed-up drama queen demanding to be this or that.

As for me, I'm at the moment just praying for things to get better, especially for my beloved who is currently facing a dilemma at workplace.

That's about all I could do.

But then again I have that obsession of mine at the moment.

Good enough as a distraction from all my worries.

Okay, for entertainment, here's the Lakeside ladies final 2019, which took place in January (which I don't think most of you all know what the hell is). Enjoy :)

Friday 6 December 2019


Meanwhile in Melaka....

And these are the people who are supposed to rule this country.

Don't want to write too much lah.

Wasting time only.

Umno can change for the better

Umno deputy president Mat Hasan kick-started the party's general assembly 2019 tonight with the opening speech of party wings' meetings.

I went through the entire speech which texts were forwarded to me by an editor friend.

I like it.

The way I understand it, Mat Hasan basically made these points.

1. Umno and its friends can defeat Pakatan in the next general election and that's not even its hardest task.

2. The hardest task is for Umno to change itself into a better political party, relevant to the new realities of Malaysia and the rest of the world.

3. Umno does not belong to any of its leaders or even members, but to all Malaysians, particularly Malays.

4. Umno must be led by leaders with the highest level of moral standards and integrity in order for the party to have the right to lead the country.

Okay, the speech was quite long but those four points are the most important, I think.

I agree with Mat Hasan on all those.

If Umno members could take them all seriously and actually do what Mat Hasan told them, I believe the party does indeed have a future.

Kicking out Pakatan from the seat of power would be pointless if Umno continues the way it was before the GE14 defeat.

It has to be a better political party.

Enough of the nonsense such as money politics, positions in the party being inherited by family members, rempit culture, apple polishing etc.

Otherwise, the people will kick it out again, and the likelihood of it getting up again after that is likely to be zero.

A prominent pro-Umno blogger once told me that the party would never change.

"This is Umno whether you like it or not and it will stay this way. Take it or leave it," he said in our conversation several months after GE14.

I refused to believe in what he said.

I believe that Umno can change for the better. I believe it have sincere leaders capable of initiating the much needed changes.

Leaders like Mat Hasan can do it, I think.

Yeah, I know, some would say "Hey, you are not even an Umno member. What right do you have to talk about our party that way?"

Well, as Mat Hasan said, Umno actually belongs to all Malaysians and I'm one of them.

This is what I told my friend who insisted that Umno would never change its ways,

"What is important is not what you want, or what Umno leaders want or even what Umno members want. What is truly important is what the rakyat want."

Mat Hasan actually said the same thing tonight.

And I'm glad he said it.

Well, good luck with your general assembly, Umno.

Hopefully something good and meaningful will come out of it, not just for Umno but for all rakyat Malaysia.

Don't let them turn you all into stupid Malay racists

I've not been really well the past weeks.

Not very focused, especially throughout last week.

Had treatment over the weekend and now feeling better.

Managed to sleep properly last night - from 10.30pm till Subuh just now.

So, I think I can write a bit now.

The biggest thing while I'm out of action appeared to be the Chin Peng's ashes issue.

That's silly, actually.

Things are really bad on the economic front now yet we are arguing about that.

Anyway, I think we shouldn't react irrationally.

So what that they brought back the ashes or even celebrated it.

For me, that's just them trying to provoke us.

If we stay cool, they will not get anything out of it.

The way I see it, the whole thing is just another racialist tactic to unite the Chinese community similar to what they did in the run up to the GE13.

Remember the Teoh Beng Hock and Kalimah Allah issues?

It's the same as those.

This time they want us to react irrationally so that the Chinese become afraid or even angry so that they will once again unite under DAP like they did back then.

They can see that more Chinese are seeing through their lies and incompetence like what happened in Tanjung  Piai and they needed to stop it.

They needed this Chin Peng's ashes issue to do it.

Already some elements in Umno are reacting stupidly, believing that the Chinese were being kurang ajar and such.

Exactly what they wanted - stupid Malays being racist towards Chinese.

Hey, not all Chinese support the communists, okay.

They also suffered back then during the Emergency.

And there was a strong argument that if not for the scores of brave Chinese special branch officers who infiltrated the Communist Party of Malaya, the war would not have even been won.

I'm quite sure that the majority of Chinese couldn't care less about the whole thing.

But if we react like some stupid racists, just like what the DAP people wanted us, then the Chinese will react back to it by uniting under DAP once again.

That what happened back then when DAP emerged as Chinese champions while MCA was seen as the Umno running dog.

They are trying to do that again after the huge loss to BN/MCA in Tanjung Piai.

So, I hope everyone could calm down and don't be stupid.

This is just a provocation.

Be cool.

Manage your ego, okay.

And stupid politicians trying to be heroes, please shut up.

Let the police handle this.

Now they want to mine rare earth in Perak again

This is weird,

Rare-earth mining to resume 

in Perak after 40 years


The announcement of the approval was made by the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources on November 16.
According to a statement, the mining will be done by the Perak government and China company Chinalco GXNF Rare Earth Development Co. Ltd.
Ya, it's weird because they are planning to do this in the same state where the Bukit Merah incident happened 40 years ago.

I thought they were so against rare-earth as they were so against Lynas.

They are not scared of radioactive anymore, is it?

Now they want to mine it some more.

At least Lynas just processes rare earth from Austaralia and that so only after it's scientifically proven to be safe.

Don't know lah these people,

Well, never mind.

I just hope they do the mining safely.

If it's safe, than I don't mind it at all, just like the Lynas operation in Pahang.

Hopefully the likes of Fuziah, Wong Tuck and such will not get too agitated over this.

Yeo Bee Yin, any comment on this?

I hope the journalists will ask her that.

Eh, you all remember this?

What a pathetic lying bunch.

Friday 22 November 2019

Alhamdulillah, those BN/Umno MPs are not traitors

Received this via WhatsApp just now,


Those BN/Umno MPs who went to Azmin's house the other day are not traitors.

Well, I don't know why Dr Mahathir said all those not so nice things about them at the press conference, but hopefully Umno will not take action against them.

I was actually a bit worried when some Umno leaders started to whack those MPs over the past few days as it could lead to the party being divided again.

I'm sick of Umno infighting such as the one leading to the GE14 defeat.

I also never subscribed to that "either you are with us or against us" slogan of Umno leaders before that general election.

But I guess some Umno leaders and their people never learnt their lessons.

They so easily want to get rid of people whom they perceived as not having the same line of thoughts as them.

They don't seemed to care that Umno needs everyone onboard, especially now that the party is trying to win back the seat of power in Putrajaya.

All they care about is in securing their own positions in the party, even if it means weakening Umno.

Those who disagree with them were labelled as traitors,

They are of the attitude that Umno belongs to them and exist to serve their interests.

I really hope that Umno people will reject these arrogant bastards in their next party election in 2021.

I also hope that from now on they will not succumb to the temptation of money in exchange for positions in the party as these people will always offer them that.

Umno people, please don't sacrifice your party for a few ringgit.

Get yourselves good leaders, okay.

Do good for the country and rakyat.

Also, stay united. If you can do that, I'm sure there will be another Tanjung Piai soon.

Who knows, maybe GE15 will be like Tanjung Piai.


Wednesday 20 November 2019

Umno, choose your leaders wisely, don't be bribed

I'm still in resting mode after Tanjung Piai.

So, I was not really paying attention to all that nonsense about the meeting they had at Azmin's house.

Stupid politicians and their stupid scheming.

After all, I don't care too much for those Umno people on both sides of all that - those who attended the meeting to support Dr Mahathir or those who criticised them for it.

Well, I have to admit though that I dislike the loudest empty cans among them more.

Puad Zarkhashi, Lokman Adam....urgh. These are among the characters who caused BN/Umno to lose in GE14 by displaying their stupidity, arrogance etc.

I believe that they were making those noises over the meeting just to remain relevant. I hope Umno people will realise who they really are, and reject them.

As for Hishammuddin, whom they said was the mastermind behind the meeting, I don't think he can actually mastermind anything. Heck, I think I'm smarter than him, okay. And if it's really him being the mastermind, the whole thing is going to fail anyway. He's that miserably not so smart.

Ya, I think all that was just a waste of time.

Why can't they just wait and  let DAP, it's Amanah lapdog and Anwar's PKR gang to pressure Dr Mahathir all they want.

I believe that if the old man feels that he doesn't have the number to stave off a vote of no confidence, he can just dissolves parliament and we can have another general election as early as next year.

Then maybe we can have a nationwide Tanjung Piai.

Really guys, especially the Umno gang out there.

Just ignore all that nonsense.

You all should focus on what's more important - like Mat Hasan, who went and performed his duties as Umno deputy president in Langkawi, barely two days after the exhaustive campaign in Tanjung Piai.

That was, while people like me were still resting from the rigours of the by-election.

The guy was simply good.

I stole these pictures of him at Dr Mahathir's Langkawi stronghold from his Instagram.

As you may noticed, Mat Hasan doesn't look like he's out of place mixing with the grassroots and Pas members.

I think he would be okay too with the non-Malays because he's a good guy. Back then during the Rantau by-election, he got up to 20 per cent of the Chinese votes which was relatively good at that time for an Umno guy.

These are things that the now scheming Umno blue blood won't be able to do.

In short, why those Umno leaders have to resort to political manoeuvring and not work for the betterment of the people like Mat Hasan?

Well, that's because they are not sincere and only willing to do things just to get something for themselves.

That's how they became rotten and ultimately lost it in GE14.

So, Umno people, now that Malaysians appeared to want to give your party and its allies another chance such as in Tanjung Piai, please seize it by getting rid of all those lousy leaders.

To do that, you all must resist the temptation of being fooled and bribed into choosing them as your leaders.

If you all can do that, then I'm sure things will be good again for your party and ultimately Malaysia.

For one thing, please don't simply listen to your Ketua Bahagian on how to choose your leaders because they may probably had succumbed to the temptations.

Come on guys, I'm sure you are not that dumb and can choose your own leaders wisely, okay.

For now, just ignore the monkeys and be focused on further fixing your party, like what Mat Hasan is doing.

Tanjung Piai - Congrats BN, special salute to three guys

I got it wrong.

I predicted BN to beat Pakatan in Tanjung Piai, but it didn't.


BN crushes Pakatan in Tanjung Piai

Yup, it's so devastating.

BN even won at all polling stations, including those known to be DAP's strongholds.

The Malays are definitely back with BN but even more significant, so did the Chinese....well, at least in Tanjung Piai lah.

And I don't think it's just because BN fielded that Chinese guy Wee Jeck Seng as he had previously faced Malay rivals from the other side there, yet those DAP strongholds didn't fall.

Needless to say, everyone in Pakatan (including DAP) is in trouble now.

To make it worse, they were all behaving like kids right after the defeat.

There were some who wanted Dr Mahathir to immediately step down as PM and be replaced by Anwar.

Really stupid. As if Anwar could had done better.

Hey, the bugger lost by proxy to Mat Hassan in Rantau, okay. He would be even worse off in Tanjung Piai.

Well, they can pressure Dr Mahathir all they want. It's none of BN's business.

In fact, Anwar leading Pakatan will make things easier for BN and its allies in the next general election as he will definitely wreck the country even more and people will hate them more for it.

Yup, they can go ahead and kill each other. BN should just stay the course.

By the way, I  read a meroyan article by one of their "activists" who lives in UK. She lashed out at everyone and blamed them for the defeat. She didn't even realise that she also contributed to the defeat by being an irritating liberal bitch with a superior than thou attitude.

Buat orang lagi menyampah.

Plenty of such in Pakatan.

Well, never mind.

Back to the Tanjung Piai by-election, I would like to congratulate the entire BN machinery and its allies, particularly Pas.

And of course congratulations to the people of Tanjung Piai for making the right choice.

My special salute to three guys whom I believe were instrumental in securing the shockingly huge victory.

First is of course Wee Jeck Seng, for being such a good candidate with excellent track records and loved by so many people in Tanjung Piai.

Second is Mat Hassan, who led the BN campaign on the ground by working tirelessly day and night for the two weeks he was in Tanjung Piai. His presence and leadership gave confidence and assurance to especially Umno members and supporters.

Third is Hasni, the Johor Umno/BN boss who is the real mastermind behind the landslide victory in Tanjung Piai. The guy doesn't speak much but he is good at what he is doing. Always low key, yet very effective. Very much like my favourite Umno leader of all times TS Abdul Ghani Othman. Hopefully Hasni will be the rightful successor of Ghani after the next general election.

Wee and Hasni

Okay, actually I want to write more but it's late now.

I better catch some sleep. Tired.

Cheers and good night.

Tanjung Piai - Old and new friends, tale of two ceramah

Just got back from my rounds in Tanjung Piai today.

Met some old friends who are campaigning here and made some new friends among the locals.

The old friends are mostly those from the days when I was involved in the defence of Johor in the run up to the general election in 2013.

They are good guys.

Things were not so good though for them when Khaled Nordin took over the MB post from TS Abdul Ghani Othman.

I don't want to go into details, but suffice to say that Khaled and his team were not kind at all to them. Personally, I believe it's because of their affiliation to Ghani.

Some of them turned to the other side in GE14 but they are mostly back supporting BN now, hoping that the Umno leadership will change for the better after the defeat last year.

As for my new friends, there's this particular guy who runs a chalet business at Kampung Air Masin. The guy, I believe, is not very educated, yet was very clear about how he sees things.

He was very careful at first about revealing his political affiliation but once I told him that I support BN, he opened up in his rather broken Bahasa Malaysia and told me how much he detests Pakatan.

"Ini orang semua cakap saja banyak, buat kerja apa pun tak tau. Kita semua sekarang susah. Itu dulu kita sokong dia orang sebab kita marah sama Najib. Tapi itu dulu punya cerita. Sekarang dia orang masih cakap saja, kita sudah tak mau dengar la. Kita mau kerja punya orang sekarang," he said.

On BN candidate Wee Jeck Seng, he said something like this,
"Itu orang baik punya. Semua orang susah dia kasi tolong. Cina ka, Melayu ka, India ka, semua dia tolong. Sini kampung, orang semua suka dia. Kita sini mau kasi dia menang dulu tapi dia kalah juga. Itu tak boleh buat apa ma. Itu jam orang marah."

Wee was the assemblyman of Pekan Nenas from 2004 to 2008 and from then on was elected to be the Tanjung Piai MP till he lost the seat last year.

Well, I'm now quite confident he will win his seat back.

Feeling very tired from my rounds now, but I feel that it's worth it.

The crowd at the BN's ceramah in Kampung Sawah just now was quite big.

A policeman friend said it's about 5,000, which I think was quite a fair estimation.

What's more significant I think was that, the crowd was made up mostly of locals as it was noted that not too many of them were wearing the BN's blue of its election workers.

It's unlike the Pakatan's one last night,

You all can read about the Pakatan's ceramah by clicking on this link,

It didn’t rain but some left while Mahathir was speaking

For the BN's ceramah tonight, this is The Star's report,

PONTIAN: A large crowd gathered at the Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah Muafakat Nasional ceramah organised by Umno and PAS, in conjunction with the Tanjung Piai by-election at Kampung Sawah near Pekan Nanas here.
Traffic leading to the ceramah is at a standstill, with many cars and motorcycles parked at the side of the road and peoples' houses before walking a long distance to enter the ceramah.
Villagers of Kampung Sawah, which is located about five km away from Pekan Nanas, are mostly small palm oil stakeholders.
A local resident said that there has never been such a gathering in the area before, where crowds started to gather at around 7.30pm on Thursday (Nov 14) night.
Also during the campaigning, no one has held a mega ceramah here.
The crowd was entertained with Nashid performances while they wait for Barisan Nasional bigwigs, including former prime minister Najib Tun Razak, Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, state Umno chief Datuk Hasni Mohamad, PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man and other leaders.
Local traders were also seen selling a variety of food here.


Okay, I need to rest now. Really very tired.

Good night.

Tanjung Piai and EC's bullshit

I'm writing this just outside the Tanjung Piai MCA operation centre in Pekan Nenas,

So, far, things look good for BN here.

Arrived here for the Tanjung Piai by-election late yesterday afternoon.

First thing I did was meeting an old friend, who is my most trusted source in Johor at Pontian Kechil to get the latest.

The guy has been camping in Tanjung Piai since before the campaigning period started.

"BN will win," was his direct answer to my question on who does he think will win the by-election.

"The local punters have already closed all bets. Too many people are betting that BN will win by two or three thousands majority," he added.

My friend is a Chinese, so he knows that sort of things.

"But seriously, Pakatan may not get even half of the Chinese votes here. People are angry over the broken promises and DAP's insensitivities such as not giving TAR College its proper allocation," he said.

My friend also told me things which I already knew from my days in Johor several years ago. That Wee Jeck Seng was a good MP who was always there for his constituents irrespective of race or religion.

"I simply can't see how BN can lose this time," he said.

Later in the evening, I went to Kampung Parit Haji Othman where Umno deputy president Mat Hasan was giving a ceramah.

The guy is working hard, day and night in Tanjung Piai. Just have a look at his Instagram.

His speech last night was good - factual, yet simple and easy to understand.

I'm glad that Mat Hasan is here for the BN machinery in Tanjung Piai.

Tonight, Dr Mahathir will be here.

Pakatan is banking on him to turn things around, but I don't think it's going to work.

It's quite pitiful that all that they have is the 94-year-old leader to convince the people once again that things are better under the Pakatan rule.

Yup, after all the broken promises and poor governance.

They even have to rely on this to blunt the BN's campaign on the ground,

EC wants parties to get police permit 

for walkabouts, house-to house campaigning

Art, what the hell are you doing lah?

You know Pakatan is lousy at such on the ground campaigning compared to BN and that's why you are making it difficult, isn't it?

Come on la friend. Don't be so cheap like that.

Okay, let me wrap up this short post with this video on Wee's on the ground campaigning,

I'll write again later. Need to go to Serkat now.

Tanjung Piai and media bullshit

Been running around quite a bit these past few days and no time to update this blog.

Flew back to KL last night.

Someone's picking me up for a trip to Tanjung Piai later this afternoon.

Need to see for myself what is going on there.

Honestly, I don't really trust the media anymore.

They promised a free media for Malaysia Baru post GE-14 but just look at these headlines on the front page of the political section of Bernama's website as I'm writing this post;

Tanjung Piai residents will lose out if they support opposition - Anwar

Bersatu confident of winning Tanjung Piai by-election- Dr Mahathir

Nothing wrong with Perak MB's video conversation - Dr Mahathir

Tg Piai constituents need not vote for the opposition to make PH listen, says Anwar

Dr Mahathir invites people in Tanjung Piai to attend PH mega ceramah

EC denies independent candidate barred from campaigning in Tg Piai

DAP: Nothing's wrong with having Liew assisting Karmaine

Except for the one on EC, the rest are all Pakatan's propaganda bullshit.

Whom ever the one who ordered the Bernama political section to give that kind of bias reporting is responsible for eroding the credibility of journalism at the national news agency.

Nobody really wants to believe in this kind of bias reporting.

Yup, same as the ones when BN was in power.

Azman Ujang, what the fuck are you doing lah?

It's the same as the now defunct Utusan and troubled Media Prima.

The others are not any better too.

Never mind. Let's just listen to Singapore's media;

Well, I better get ready for my trip now.

I'll write again once I'm in Tanjung Piai.

The untouchables

I'm not surprised at all.

Court allows prosecution’s application 

to dismiss LTTE-related charges 

against assemblyman


Meanwhile, Rayer when meeting reporters later thanked the prosecution for the move. “We were informed this morning after the charges were filed that the prosecutors had decided to withdraw the two charges. No reasons given,” he said.

“We hope the prosecutor will reconsider to withdraw the LTTE-related charges against the others detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (SOSMA) 2012,” he said. Also present was Human Resource Minister M. Kula Segaran, who is also the DAP national vice-chairman. 
I had seen it coming when I posted this on Oct 11,
See lah how....whether the DAP-oriented AG Tommy Thomas will allow those DAP assemblymen to be charged.

You all know lah these days....their gang always get their cases thrown out because the AG Chamber refused to either take them to court or continue with the prosecution of an ongoing case.
Well, that's just how it is. 
Can't complain much though, Malaysians voted these people to power and that's how things are now.
Seriously, I now highly doubt that killers of fireman Adib will ever be brought to justice.
Police may get them but they can't be prosecuted, I think.
Yup, just like this LTTE case.
The Home Minister and IGP said there were enough evidence, but the almighty AG Chamber has decided charges then.

They are really untouchable now.

Ignore the monkeys, focus on Tanjung Piai

Just talked to a journalist friend who is now in Tanjung Piai and according to him, things are really going well for the BN's campaign.

"The Pakatan candidate seemed a bit lost when he met the people on the ground. Maybe it's because all this while he spent more time in JB than here," he said.

Wee Jeck Seng, a well liked wakil rakyat when he was an assemblyman of Pekan Nenas and MP of Tanjung Piai doesn't seemed to have such a problem.

"Everyone knows him here," said my friend.

Well, that's what my friend said. I have to see it for myself and I'm planning to be there probably by Monday next week.

Hopefully I can stay in Johor till polling day.

Need to catch up with friends there too in order to get the latest on Johor politics, among other things.

I always believe that you have to be on the ground to be able to comment on the political situation there.

Arm chair reporting has never been my way of doing things and that's why of late, I have been refraining from writing too much about what's going on in my home state.

I have to admit that I'm out of touch with how things really are in Johor, being not there for quite a while.

Back then when I was in Johor, I always disliked it when people wrote about Johor from KL and pretended as if they were experts on the subject.

Anyway, while things appeared to be good down south, there have been a bit of rumbling here at the Umno top hierarchy.

That' has always been the problem with Umno.

The root is strong but the top quite often rotten.

This is a case of a gang, quite publicly accusing another of something, probably to strengthen their position in the party.

I'm not going into the details as doing so may plays right into the hands of Pakatan, but suffice to say that as far as I'm concerned, those involved are the same stupid selfish bastards who caused Umno's downfall in GE14.

They don't care about the party or the so-called perjuangan. All they care about is what they are going to get from the now resurgent Umno.

They can't even wait for at least until the Tanjung Piai by-election has been won.

For them, Umno is their property to be exploited for their self interest.

Umno people really need to know who these people are and reject them as their leader.

It's actually easy to identify these scumbags. They are the ones who still believe that they can offer money in exchange for positions in the party.

Umno people, if any of your leaders comes to you offering money in exchange for your support in the party, then you should know that leader is among those who are destroying your party.

Such leaders should not have a place in Umno anymore.

Also, when you read something which says bad things about one of your party leaders, just ignore it for now.

It's actually just one of those bullshits planted by those leaders who only care about themselves.

If they really care about the party, they wouldn't do that so publicly which in the end sows doubts on Umno recovery effort.

Umno people, be focused.

Help BN,  in particular MCA wins back Tanjung Piai first as it will lead to Putrajaya in the next general election.

Remember, Umno is now without power. Fight each other, for what?

Win first before you all want to talk about the stupid scheming and infighting.

To all Umno people, don't pay attention to the monkeys who are jockeying for power.

Tanjung Piai nomination day and MotoGP

I took these pictures in Tanjung Piai yesterday from Mat Hassan's Instagram (I follow only two politicians' Instagram - him and KJ).

They look good and confident.

Even former Johor MB Osman Sapian seems to be interested to join them....hahaha

Yea, it looks good down there in Tanjong Piai.

It doesn't matter, I think, how many proxy candidates Pakatan put to help their actual candidate.

If BN work hard and stay focused till polling day, I'm confident that they will win.

Oh, and this is a comment by a Pakatan supporter, who is a regular here of late, about the nomination day,

We are truly Malaysians - I am with you bro 13:57.

BN is so damn bloody synonym with "Borosmah Najib" and there goes too their "Unscrupulous Macai Najib Organization" (UMNO).


5 days ago Anwar said PKR fully backs Bersatu Karmaine Sardini as PH candidate for Tg Piai Parliamentary By Election.

Strange... all PKR Top Guns (incl Anwar himself) are not seen at the nomination of the said polling at Dewan Jubilee Intan Pontian this morning.

Najib, Zahid, Mat Hassan, Wee Kar Siong, LKS, Mat Sabu, Sallehudin Ayub, Muhyddin were present. Tun M was at Tg Piai yesterday & had to rush for ASEAN Meeting today at Bangkok.

Di manakah keikhlasan serta semangat setia-kawan PKR dalam Pakatan Harapan.....??

Ini dah macam lolongan-lolongan biol si Kejora, "Jho Low di mana..Jho Low di mana...??".

He he he
Regards from Tg Piai

Well, that's typical of Pakatan these days with the Dr Mahathir-Anwar power transition approaching its deadline.

Anyway, I can't be in Tanjung Piai yet. Can only be there next week as I still got things to do here.

Yesterday I was at the MotoGP in Sepang, hanging out at the Ducati lounge doing some PR works.

Shot this short video,

And this is Ducati rider  Danilo Petrucci speaking to everyone at the lounge before the qualifying session.

By the way, Philip Morris is the sponsor of Ducati's MotoGP lounge, thus that banner on top of Petrucci.

As for the race today, I don't really care for it too much as Marc Marquez had already won the championship.

I still hope though that Rossi can win today. After all, he's now 40 and the last rider from those days when I was really crazy about MotoGP.

Rossi when he was still with Ducati
Still, I won't be there today.

Driving north later this morning.

Well, I better get some sleep. It's now 3:05.

Wee's candidacy, sign of BN's full recovery

So, BN actually chose Wee Jeck Seng as its candidate for the Tanjung Piai by-election.

Honestly, I'm so glad with that decision.

Congratulations to the BN leadership for such a wise and far-sighted move.

Special salute to Johor BN chairman and Umno chief Hasni whom I believed as being the one who made that final decision and his boss Zahid, who allowed him to make the dicision.

I had explained my preference for Wee in this post on Sept 29,

In case you all are too lazy to click on that link and read it, here are its excerpts,

1. ...if the coalition fields an MCA candidate, then it would prove that the recently sealed Perpaduan Ummah pact with Pas was not meant to alienate the non-Malays....

2. It will send a strong message to the Chinese community, especially in Johor that DAP's accusations of BN over the years, especially about Umno being a racist party were not true.

3. Wee had done well there by previously winning against DAP Malay candidates in 2008 and 2013. The guy was well liked as he served his constituents diligently, irrespective of their race or religion.

4. ...despite other MCA candidates being massacred elsewhere, he was beaten by the late Dr Md Farik Md Rafik of Pribumi Bersatu by a razor thin margin of 524 votes.

5. ....Wee managed to get about 30 per cent of the votes from among the Chinese voters in the constituency, which was exceptional....

6, In Pekan Nanas, where the local Chinese community is concentrated, the MCA candidate managed to reduce the DAP's majority from 2,669 votes in 2013 to 1,308 while in Kukup where the Malays have the outright majority, the Umno candidate's majority of 6,946 votes in 2013 was reduced to merely 862.

7. ...most of the parliamentary constituencies in Johor are of the marginal type and BN will need all the Chinese votes that it could get in future elections in the state.

I believe that BN people in the Malay-majority Tanjung Piai will fully support Wee's candidacy.

This is what Tanjung Piai Umno division chief Jefri said about it,

That's the quality that we want from Umno leaders - selflessness.

I'm quite confident now with BN's chance to win in Tanjung Piai and I also believe that it will mark the start of its full recovery.

This time, everyone will see Pakatan as being the one banking on racial factor to win while BN represents the true multi-racial cooperation which has made Malaysia what it is today.

Workers protests at Forest City, only Chinese newspapers interested?

Saw this story by Nanyang yesterday,

You all can read it in full at

It happened on Friday.

I tried to find the story in the English and Bahasa Malaysia publications but can't find any.

So, let me give you all some details about it based on the Nanyang's report;

1. A group of construction workers made up of locals and Chinese nationals, gathered at Forest City, Johor in the morning of (25th Oct) Friday.

2. They were there  to demand for arrears of payment from the main contractor for renovation works carried out on a project.

3. The workers, who were employed by a sub-contractor hired by the main contractor engaged by Forest City have not been paid their salary.

 4. As their repeated request for payment went unheeded, the group decided to launch a protest. 

5. It was learnt that the sub-contractor had claimed that it has not been paid for three months for the work done by the main contractor, named by Nanyang as Lijie International Construction Development (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

6. The protesting workers were about to take out their banners when staff from the Forest City sales gallery, together with the company's security team stopped them.

7. Forest City in a short statement said the company had duly paid Lijie  in accordance with the contract and that the dispute was not directly related to the Forest City project or the developer.  

8. The statement also added it was sympathetic with the plight of the affected workers and will help them to resolve the matter.

9. A Labour Rights Service Station have been set up since beginning of the month to ensure swift coordination of such disputes, the Nanyang report says.

My questions ;

1. Is Forest City going to claim it is being “victimised” again or it just doesn’t know how to pick contractors of integrity, at least one that can manage sub-contractors payment on time? Or is there something else going on?

2. Why this kind of pay dispute drama involving the company which is managing Forest City keeps happening? The last previous two were on October 16 involving the Central Park project and on September 7 involving another project at Forest City. Both incidents were reported by the Chinese newspapers.

3. Who are actually these "main contractors" appointed by Forest City who kept failing to pay the sub-contractors causing workers not being paid their salaries? Are they Malaysians or from mainland China? What is their real connection with Forest City?

I hope the English and Bahasa Malaysia media, will take interest in this and find answers to those questions.

I'm not sure why they didn't report the story so far.

I talked with a Johor-based journalist friend working for one of the Chinese newspapers about it and this is what he said;

"It has happened so many times that probably the English and Bahasa Malaysia media have became accustomed to such workers protests at Forest City that they don't feel the need to report it.  Either that or they are still hoping to get advertisement money from the property giant, and therefore don’t cover such news."

Of course he said that in Chinese. I just translated it.

Well, I think the authorities should have a look into it.

After all, this is Malaysia Baru and that is Forest City which was a big issue in the run-up to GE14.

Remember this?

And here is a video of one of those workers protests,

Oh, please let it be Osman Sapian to contest Tanjung Piai

This is nice,

Ex-Johor MB Osman Sapian 

shortlisted for Tg Piai polls

I first saw it at NST but can't find the link, thus the The Sun link.

Well, I hope Osman will indeed get to be the Pakatan candidate.

Osman is now the Kempas state assemblyman, and if he becomes an MP, that would make him a true Johor super politician.

I can't remember the last time a Johor politician being an assemblyman and MP at the same time.

Khaled Nordin tried to do it at GE 14 but lost the Pasir Gudang parliament seat, Permas state seat....and as MB, lost the entire Johor. What a joke.

Well, maybe it's a Pakatan strategy after all.

While some may see it as Pakatan, in particular Pribumi Bersatu, running out of proper leaders to be fielded at the by-election, I see it as a brilliant move to show how strong the ruling coalition is at the moment.

First, they appointed Osman, who was not qualified at all as Johor MB, then sacked him from that post 11 months later and now field him as candidate in perhaps the most important by-election to test the people's support for the Pakatan government.

If Osman, who Pakatan itself considered as a failed MB, still wins the by-election, then it's a true evidence that the people, especially in Johor do not want BN anymore.

Pakatan must be damned confident of itself by making that move.

Brilliant, isn't it?


Okay, okay,  I'm kidding.

Actually I believe that Pakatan is going to get whacked in Tanjong Piai no matter whether they field Osman or anyone else.

Things are really bad for them down there in Johor.

Their state government has been sitting on its ass doing nothing.

Okay, sacking Osman was good but that doesn't count. It's their own stupidity from the beginning when they appointed him to the post.

I even warned them a day after GE14, remember?

Osman Sapian is the leading Johor MB candidate


You all tell me lah if there's anything significant that they have been doing so far in Johor other than fighting among themselves.

And the new MB, whatever his name is, is just a dum dum.

He's not much of an improvement than Osman.

Worst of all, the complaints of Johoreans during BN's Khaled Nordin administration are all still there.

They have done nothing about those complaints.

Remember this,

Really, what have they done about it?

The MO is still the same.

The state government is even still following what the Johor palace says, despite the rhetorics of their leaders and prominent bloggers about the Malay rulers.

Click on this for example,

Farewell Johor's Ramsar sites 

And Johoreans on the ground are not doing all that great too.

For instance, the recent lowering of ceiling property price which could be bought by foreigners from RM1 million to RM600,000. Johoreans will be most affected by it due to its proximity to Singapore.

Many of them may soon not be able to buy their own house and instead have to rent from Singaporeans, who own property in JB and surrounding areas.

With our weak ringgit, it's a cheap sale for Singaporeans. You all check la the price of a HDB unit and compare it to a RM600,000 house in JB.

By the way, how come the Johor government is not protesting this? I mean, for the interest of ordinary Johoreans.

I know la that they wanted to make some money too when the developers sell their units to Singaporeans but they tak kesian ke to especially Johoreans who voted for them in GE14.

Well, never mind. That's water under the bridge already.

Anyway, I don't really blame them as the previous BN's Khaled Nordin administration was quite bad, and I bitched about it quite a lot myself back then.

Now that they have a taste of how it is under this useless Pakatan government, I'm sure they know what to do about it.

I'll soon write about the next Johor state administration which I'm predicting will be headed by Datuk Hasni Mohammad.

I know the guy and I believe he is good.

Okay, maybe not as good as TS Abdul Ghani Othman, but he will definitely be better than the current and past Pakatan MB clowns.

He is also definitely better than Khaled Nordin.

Really, I'll write about it all soon.
