A tip on how to identify a good politician

I almost got it right with this previous post

GE15 should not be too immediate


This is because, I believe Muhyiddin now has the number in parliament.

He is likely to have bought enough time to get enough Umno MPs to back his Perikatan government.

It turned out that Muhyiddin got his extra seats in parliament form PKR, and not Umno as I wrote,.

PKR’s Julau, Tebrau MPs defect to support Perikatan

And they talked so much about Umno people being unprincipled.

Then there's this one also,

Amanah Youth tells PKR to stop hypocrisy over party hopping

Yup, they are even hopping among themselves.

That's what I really can't stand about Pakatan people - their hypocrisy.

Say people corrupt lah, no principle lah, racist lah, bla bla bla.... but they are themselves actually those.

Talked about Najib and Umno being corrupt, but some of  themselves are facing corruption charges in court.

Oh, when it comes to them, it's selective prosecution lah, kangaroo court lah, etc etc....

So tiresome.

Be honest lah, did our lives get any better after GE14?

What? It's Umno fault is it?

Three years on and we still want to repeat that mantra? Like Guan Eng?

That guy also got corruption charges hanging over his head, okay.

Do also remember that Pakatan lost Putrajaya not because of Umno but instead due to their own screwed up political games.

Now we got this Perikatan government which I doubt is viable for very long.

We have now lost that critical edge that we used to have over our regional competitors - political stability.

The economy is simply bad now.

Yup, and with this Covid-19 crisis, we are in even tighter spot.

Remember "Ini kali lah!", "Ubah!" and the other slogans?

You all still believe in those?


Ya, I know, it's democracy. We are free to choose.

But the price was quite steep I think.

It's okay la for you all who have money and stable jobs, but for the rest of us, we now just want to survive.

Next time let's not be fooled by these politicians.

Just choose the good ones.

Never mind the parties.


Let me give you all a tip - a politicians who talk a lot is useless. Statements here, speeches there, sloganeering everywhere...those are all bullshit.

The good ones talk only when necessary and just do their work for the rakyat. Vote for them.

Try to remember that when GE15 comes along.

The good Umno people

 Received a request to publish these from a journalist friend,

Terima Kasih kepada Tuan Haji SUB, Ketua Ketua Cawangan Tuan Haji Aziz Abdullah, Encik Amirnuddin, Encik Badrul, Encik Abd Rahman Ehsan Jaya, Encik Nazri, Encik Othman, Encik Jais KC Kuini, Puan Hajah Nora Ketua Wanita Bahagian serta Ajk yang telah bersama sama dan juga mereka yang telah mewakilkan Biro Kebajikan Umno Bahagian Tebrau pada minggu ini bagi memberi  sumbangan kepada  5 orang penerima barang  barang keperluan harian, bantuan perbelanjaan harian, kerusi roda, katil pesakit dan juga tilam angin kepada mereka yang memerlukan 

Di ucapkan ribuan terima  kasih yang tiada terhingga kepada Yg Bhg Datuk Maulizan KB Umno Bahagian Tebrau serta Mr Ng Pengerusi MCA Bahagian Tebrau serta Ajk nya 
yang sudi memberi bantuan tersebut 

Terima kasih

Well, it's good to know that there are still Umno people who continued to do their best for the rakyat instead of just talking about politics all the time.

I personally knew Maulizan, the Umno division chief of Tebrau since my days in Johor.

He's one of the good Umno leaders. A very honest and work oriented guy.

Unfortunately, Maulizan, along with the other Umno and BN candidates in Tebrau were badly defeated in GE14 despite the good they had done.

That was at the height of public anger towards the Umno/BN leadership.

However, despite the rakyat's rejection at that time, they are still serving with whatever they could muster.

Really admirable.

I wonder what the Pakatan Harapan MP and assemblymen in Tebrau have been doing since they won their seats in 2018.

I really hope good Umno and BN people like Maulizan and the gang will make a comeback in GE15 instead of the bad ones now jockeying for positions to continue being parasites.

GE15 should not be too immediate

As you all should know by now, Yang DiPertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah had yesterday decreed that the parliament could be reconvened despite the ongoing state of Emergency.

I believe the Agong, being the good king that he is, wanted the country to continue being a democracy.

Thank you, Tuanku.

Well, surely now the opposition people led by Anwar will once again go after Muhyiddin with their no-confidence motions in parliament.

Oh, they must be so itchy for that now.

And of course by right, if that happened, Muhyiddin will dissolve the parliament paving the way for GE15.

Never mind that the Covid-19 pandemic is still raging with thousands of new cases being recorded everyday.

However, I have a feeling that this will not happen. At least not immediately.

This is because, I believe Muhyiddin now have the number in parliament.

He is likely to have bought enough time to get enough Umno MPs to back his Perikatan government.

For the sake of the country, those Umno leaders would say later.

After all, Umno had even before the declaration of state of Emergency stated that it would only push for GE15 if the pandemic has been placed under control.

Anyway, I don't believe the Agong would have issued the decree to let parliament reconvene if he knew it would lead to more Covid-19  infections and deaths.

He must have somehow knew that GE15 will not immediately be held amidst the pandemic despite him allowing the parliament to meet again.

I'm actually fine with that and in fact hopes that was indeed the case.

I'm not that crazy to have the GE15 as long as the Covid-19 crisis is still not showing signs of easing.

All I want for now is for our democracy to be restored.

Meanwhile, I noticed that some failed Umno leaders are trying hard to make a comeback.

These are the people who screwed up and finally lost their position in GE14. 

They tried to project an image of being an Umno hero by bashing the Perikatan government, knowing well that the party grassroots are unhappy about being bullied by Pribumi Bersatu.

This is one of them today,

Titah Agong ‘mimpi ngeri’ buat Muhyiddin, halang kerajaan PN berkuasa penuh, kata Aziz Kaprawi

This Aziz Kaprawi lost his Seri Gading parliamentary seat in Johor during GE 14 despite the constituency being at that time an Umno fortress in the Johor Malay heartland.

That's how screwed up he was.

Well, I guess he wanted to have another go at it.

Then there was the former Johor MB and state Umno chief Khaled Nordin who lost the entire state and on top of that the parliamentary and state seats that he contested.

He has been making all sorts of anti-Perikatan statements of late in his capacity as Umno vice-president, a position stupidly given to him in the aftermath of GE14. 

I guess Umno people were so dazed and confused by the disaster at that time that they forgot Khaled's "achievements" in that general election.

I highlighted his recent nonsense in my previous posts.

Also making all kind of heroic statements against Muhyiddin was another failed Johor Umno guy by the name of Puad Zarkashi.

Not unlike in Khaled's case, I'm also not sure how the Umno people had became so blurred that they elected him as a member of the party's supreme council after GE14.

He is probably hoping to once again contest the Batu Pahat parliamentary seat which he lost back in GE13. Yup, that's even before Umno and BN drove themselves into the longkang in GE14.

Well, I don't really mind that. Will enjoy a good laugh when he loses again.

Hopefully though, Umno people are a bit wiser now.

There were others like these clowns, but I'm only going to mention those few as they are from Johor, which I'm most familiar with.

Anyway, as I mentioned above, I think there's quite a while more before GE15.

At least until the Covid-19 numbers drop significantly.

That should be at least until the end of the year.

So, the focus should still be on fighting the pandemic and reviving the economy.

Hopefully the vaccination process , which started today will go smoothly and with that normalcy will return.

Tuesday 23 February 2021

Let's take the vaccine

The vaccine is here and I'm going to register myself to get it.

Hopefully this Covid-19 pandemic will end soon and we can get back to normal life.

Some though don't believe in the vaccine.

They go with their anti-vaccine rants in the social media and WhatsApp groups.

Really irritating people.

These are the type of people I was talking about in my last post about idiots.

Oh, they claim their arguments were based on facts alright.

But we know they were just bollocks.

Same with many other social justice warriors who don't seemed to realise that they were an irritating bunch.

Preaching their politics and beliefs in even surau and neighbourhood WhatsApp groups.

Sometimes I wish I can punch them in the face.

Anyway, life is too short to be bothered by such nonsensical people.

Us, the sane ones just need to get on with life and do what is right.

Let's just ignore the idiots.

In fact, if possible, stay away from them.

Let us just have the vaccine and be safe.

I may not like the current government but I support the proposal for it to issue a "passport" for those who have taken the vaccine.

That should separate us from those who refuse to have it. Let's just make them live among themselves and infect each others.

Maybe a few weeks in Covid-19 ICU with tubes in their mouths may cure them off their idiocy.

They may holler about their human rights and stuff when excluded from the rest of society but we also have the right to be shielded from them.

By the way, I also wish we have a vaccine against political lunacy.

Take a jab and we are safe from useless politicians and their idiotic supporters.

Especially in social media and WhatsApp groups.

That would be nice. Hahaha.

Idiots who think they are smart are everywhere

 Someone asked me the other day why I'm not active on Facebook and Twitter.

Told him that it's because I value my privacy.

I don't like people shoving their ideas and thoughts into my face.

I also don't like to do that to other people.

This blog is okay enough for me. I can write my thoughts without forcing people to read it.

If they want to read, they are welcomed here, and if they don't, it's okay too.

With the other platforms, people will have to see my writings whether they like it or not. 

That's not right for me.

Similarly, I don't like to have to read other people's nonsense.

You know, like when they post an irritating article and it's then there on your Facebook wall.

Too many idiots around who think that they are smart enough to educate others by shoving their stuff in the social media.

Sometimes they just cut and past or plastered the links of articles, which really irritate me. 

I'm actually easily irritated by their nonsense and tend to get itchy to tell them that they are idiots in their face.

Of course that's rude, but I can't help myself sometimes.

So, these days, I rather not get involved.

For this blog, I have to exercise a lot of patience when managing the comments. Well, at least I can delete the comments which really irritate me.

I also don't like WhatsApp groups.

Currently I'm only in two groups - my family's and an old school friends'.

The old school friends' one has a  strict policy of no politics or any sensitive stuff. 

I exited the main one that my school friends set up because it turned into a political platform.

I ended up quarrelling there and decided to get out. Wasted my time and energy only entertaining silly political arguments.

I know, I should simply ignore them but I just can't.

It's the same reasons why I quit so many other WhatsApp groups, which I didn't really want to join in the first place.

You see, some friends wanted me to be in their groups and I felt that it's impolite to decline, so I just tolerated it.

However, the idiots are all over the place.

Without fail, one of them will be there in each of the groups peddling their political and other beliefs.

Really can't stand them.

Anyway, a few years back I have to quit my previous job because some bastards used the company's WhatsApp group to bully others and I told them off.

I really hate bullies.

Well, one of the bullies was my then big boss, and for that I was forced to tender my resignation. 

Oh, they have ways of forcing me to quit without breaking the labour laws.

But never mind. I leave it to Allah on that one.

So these days, whenever someone included me into a WhatsApp group, I would try to tolerate it as long as I could.

But once I noticed that I started being sarcastic and rude because of the idiots, I just leave.

As I always told my close friends, I'm not in the business of educating idiots.

Especially idiots who think they are smart. They are the worst.

They failed (or not bothered) to defend the Agong

 The other day, I asked the Istana Negara media team to 

Defend the Agong, please

I told them that they need to do so to stop the accusations which will damage the king's good reputation.

They didn't and instead chose to be lazy about it.

"Oh, itu semua fitnah semata-mata. Lagi pun orang ramai sayang pada Agong dan tak kan percaya semua itu. Lagi pun lama-lama orang lupa lah," I can imagine them saying that.

It's the same attitude of BN media strategists before the coalition's destruction in GE14.

Well, actually I was being silly as I knew even before asking the palace media team to defend the king that they were a hopeless bunch.

All they are good at is when it comes to releasing press releases and sending invites to VIPs whenever there's a ceremony at the palace.

No crisis management skill at all.

And true enough, the accusations against the Agong and his family have keep on coming.

Someone forwarded to me this story by Malaysiakini, titled

Syarikat urus projek lupus sisa Lynas ada kaitan kerabat Pahang

You may access it at this link,


Seluas 202.35 hektar tanah, bersamaan dengan saiz 283 padang bola sepak, telah dikeluarkan daripada hutan simpan kekal Bukit Kuantan, untuk ditukarkan menjadi tapak pelupusan sisa berjadual industri pelbagai kategori (MCISWDS).

PDF Lynas hanya akan mengambil 58.35 hektar, atau 29 peratus daripada keseluruhan kawasan berkenaan.

Gading Senggara Sdn Bhd (GSSB), firma swasta yang mempunyai kaitan dengan kerabat Pahang, akan menjadi kontraktor MCISWDS itu. Lynas turut melantik syarikat sama untuk membina PDF-nya di situ.

GSSB ditubuhkan pada Julai 2012 sebagai Puncak Trillium Sdn Bhd, dan menukar namanya ke nama sekarang pada Disember 2014.

Semakan Malaysiakini terhadap firma itu di Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) mendedahkan pemegang saham majoritinya, dengan 50 peratus pegangan, ialah Pemangku Raja Pahang Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah.

Now, I believe that Malaysiakini had done its calculations and decided that it's not seditious to write such a story.

It's not as vicious as those accusations made by the Australian-based blogger which I highlighted in my previous post but it's more damaging than that.

Malaysiakini is after all a Malaysian accredited news portal, and therefore its stories are more credible.

Ya, that despite its past blunders and lack of neutrality. 

Its stories would make people believe that the royal family do have vested business interests and therefore susceptible to be influenced by other parties such as in the Agong's decision to allow the current state of emergency, which many feel was just an excuse for Perikatan Nasional to stay in power.

And if the Istana Negara media team feel that people are not interested in these accusations, then they are wrong.

I'm now resting in Kuantan at a place just a walking distance away from the Agong's home palace here and I do hear people talking about it.

They talked about things such as "surat kuning" and how powerful it is.

Anyway, do the Istana Negara media team ever bothered to go on the ground and check what people feel about the accusations?

Or do they just hang around the palace, rubbing shoulders with VIPs and media big bosses while doing really nothing to protect the Agong and his family from those accusations?

Who selected the team anyway?

Never mind.

It's quite hopeless, really.

They are just making noises about the sugarbabies and that's about it

So many people talked about the Sugarbook pimping app yesterday, mostly demanding action against it.

I wrote about it the other day,

Stop promoting prostitution

From how I understand it though, they will take no action because there is no actual law to be use for it.

Just read the statement by MCMC

MCMC warns internet users to be cautious when using online dating app


The MCMC said it would continue to monitor and investigate the Sugarbook application and would take necessary action against the users and platform owners should there be any violation of the law.

It said that PDRM would take further action if there are elements of prostitution involved.

Note the use of words "should there be" and "if".

Yup, as it is now, pimping Sugarbook style is not against the law. 

Otherwise MCMC which are usually fast in taking action against people and blocking websites deemed to be offensive would have come out with  a stronger statement like, 

"The bastards are pimping and therefore under the Pimping Act 1966, we are blocking their website etc etc."

Instead it just "warns internet users to be cautious", as if we are the ones who are doing the pimping. 

So lame.

Well, as I wrote previously, if you don't have the law against it, enact one.

Those irritating politicians who are our MPs need to work on this and do some good for a change instead of just quarrelling over who should be PM or who should be blamed for this and that.

Yeah, especially those PH MPs who claimed that they were better than the others. They should start the ball rolling. In fact, they should have done this when they were in government back then.

As for now, we have to resign ourselves that nothing could really be done about this issue.

They will make some noises like yesterday and then nothing will happen as the issue dies down.

And for them, that's about it to it.

Really, those people in the positions to do something to stop the pimping bastards simply have to do what they must do.

Don't wait until one day you suddenly find out that your daughter or sister is sucking and licking the stinking body of a lecherous old rich man for her extra pocket money.

"Oh, daddy, I'm just being a sugarbaby. Totally respectable and legal, ya," she will tell you.

When that happened, padan muka engkau.

CNY Blues

I don't really celebrate the Chinese New Year today.

How to celebrate la with the Covid-19 pandemic still around.

Can't even go anywhere.

Just hanging around the house doing nothing.

Sent a new year message to my beloved and that's about it.

Searched for anything interesting for my work and found nothing.

Practice my darts a bit....and that's about all.

Anyway, how many of you really know about Chinese New Year celebrations anyway?

I mean, do you all know what is a Chinese year?

I bet many Chinese in Malaysia don't even know anything about the actual Chinese calendar.

Simply celebrate la you all.

Here, click on the link below and learn a bit from Wikipedia;

Chinese calendar 

Anyway, it's okay. 

Sometimes I also don't know why I celebrate certain things.

We simply follow others just for the heck of it.

Anything to make ourselves happy.

But, seriously, why do we bother to celebrate anything at the moment?

We got the pandemic, the economy is bad, people are losing their jobs and the country being run by in my opinion less than qualified people.

Really, just look at the ministers.

Okay, some of them are alright but most of the others are jokers.

It has been like this for too long and things are really getting from bad to worse.

All those many moons ago, when people went out to the streets demanding change, is this all there is to it?

Ubah! Ubah! Ubah! Ini kali lah!

Yeah, we ubah alright....into this.

Even without the pandemic, I think our country would have still gone worse these past four years.

You all don't want to go to the streets again ka?


What a waste of time and energy.

Well, it already happened. We just have to live with it, okay.

Never mind.

This is just me bitching because I'm bored.

Here, because it's Chinese New Year, I put this video of a Malaysian Chinese joking about Chinese in America for your amusement,

Stop promoting prostitution

 This is a story in FMT today

More varsity girls turning to ‘sugar daddies’ during pandemic

It mentioned all the nice perks of being a sugar baby and how it's a way to survive this ongoing hard Covid-19 time.

What the story didn't highlight though is that being a sugar baby is actually providing sexual services for older men in return for money.

Let us be straight to the point here, it's prostitution, plain and simple.

The story makes it as if it's a normal thing to be. At least that's how I read it.

It's pandemic time, students sell their young fresh bodies to older rich men to make ends meet, consenting adults, win win arrangements, good for all individuals involved.

I know, sex stories sell, but don't the editors have any moral obligation not to promote such a thing in their stories.

Well, they should have at least get the authorities or someone to comment on it.

Ask them whether it's legal to promote that sort of activities, for instance.

That way, the story doesn't look like it's saying being a sugar baby or sugar daddy is a normal thing.

I'm not a very moral person myself, but to promote immorality like that is even more not right, I think.

We need to draw a line somewhere.

For all the girl readers of this blog, please don't resort to such things.

Do try other ways to improve your finances. You may get less, but you will not lose your dignity and honour.

Being a prostitute like that will destroy your life.

Okay, since I'm on the subject, if there's anyone with authority or power reading this, please do something to stop this prostitution of our young girls.

If there is no law covering this, do enact one.

Those smug pimps quoted in the story should be put in jail and be castrated.

Real bastards.

The tudung ideology

 This is interesting,

Peer pressure makes tudungs the norm in schools


1. “There are schools which create their own rules and regulations. The ministry does not take any action unless a parent lodges a complaint.”

2. “It’s really not about the law. It’s more about stopping the ridicule and mental torment of those who face compulsion.

3. “The issue of tudung is actually an issue of jurisprudence, but yet they make it an issue of faith,” 

I believe there's quite a bit of truth in this.

They said if a woman doesn't wear tudung, she will be going to hell and receives all sorts of horrific punishments.

I don't want to write down here in specifics what they said those punishments are as they are too....horrifying.

Oh, and if you don't believe what they tell you about those things, then you are a bad or not even a real Muslim.


And when a girl starts to wear tudung, they celebrate it as if she has just converted to Islam.

Sudah hijrah, sudah dapat hidayah, they said.

My father who studied in UiTM when it was still ITM once told me how when at the start of his first year, half of the girls in his class were not wearing tudung but by the end of his final year, every single one of them already did.

And then there's my aunt who studied marine biology at UPM. She didn't wear tudung at that time and sometimes had to wear swimming gear to conduct practical studies in the water. 

She told me that even her cousins who also studied at the same university refused to acknowledge her as a relative and openly said they were ashamed of being related to her because of that.

Really, I'm not against anyone wearing tudung, but I don't like the ideology that if you don't wear tudung, you are a lesser Muslim or even not a Muslim at all.

It's terrible actually, to teach girls such an ideology.

If I'm not mistaken this whole thing started in the early 1970s during the so-call Islamic revival in Malaysia.

It actually has a lot to do with a young Anwar Ibrahim and his student movement. Go check that one out yourself.

The tudung as we know it today was at that time called "mini telekung". That's after the telekung worn by Muslim women during their prayers.

Tudung  back then was actually what is now normally referred to as selendang. Malay women wear it during social gatherings, kenduri kahwin and even religious events. Most of the time, the majority of them didn't cover their hair.

Apparently, the Islamic revivalists argued that the selendang was not modest or Islamic enough as the hair could still be seen.

Not a single strand of hair must be in public display, they said.

Hence the mini telekung, and for the even more pious ones, they wear the longer version called mini telekung labuh.

Nowadays, they are simply called tudung and tudung labuh or to make it sounds even more Islamic, they called it hijab, which is in Arabic.

Oh, and the supposedly super pious ones wear face covering called niqab.

These days, tudung has become an industry with people like Neelofa and such becoming millionaires selling them.

Well, I don't mind that. Piousness could generate the economy, I guess. They sell lots of stuff catering to pious people - bottled air zam zam, kurma juice, non-alcoholic perfumes etc. Gunakan tanpa was-was, they said.

It's just that ideology that bothers me. I just wish it's not like that among the young people.

I don't know lah....maybe I'm going to hell just for writing this.

Never mind. I take my chances as this issue bugs me for quite a bit, especially now that they are saying that we may soon have a super Malay Muslim coalition forming our government.

Honestly, I'm a bit scared of those Pas people as they may emerge as the dominant Malay party at the expense of Umno which has been branded with all sort of bad things, especially by the non-Malays.

Who knows, maybe ten years from now, all Malay Muslim women are going to evolve once again into wearing the niqab like some Middle Eastern women.

The tudung may soon be not Islamic enough anymore, the same way the selendang was back then.

Lets make Khaled Nordin a Czar

 I saw this yesterday and I laughed,

Umno veep suggests new czar & more comprehensive plan to battle Covid-19

Did Khaled Nordin really used the word CZAR, like in the Russian king?


Politicians and their bombastic expressions....sigh.

Anyway, why would people want to care about what Khaled Nordin said.

Well, if they care, then let just make the guy the czar that he proposed. 

After all, Khaled Nordin is exceptional.

He took over as Johor MB in 2013, did nothing really, and led BN there to the worse defeat of the coalition in GE14.

He lost the parliament and state seats that he contested and BN got trounced in its once stronghold of Johor.

Yet, Umno people made him their vice-president. Stupid Umno people.

And the guy even got himself appointed by the Muhyiddin government as Boustead chairman, which comes with a more than nice salary.

That's exceptional, isn't it?

Nowadays, he's issuing statements like that one.

Once a while he also even criticised Muhyiddin's government which gave him the nice job to suit Umno grassroots negative sentiment.

Ya, lets make him a czar.

Khaled Nordin the Czar...hehehe

Khaled the Czar?

Oh, he should try run for the Umno deputy president post in the next party election. Why not, right?

Whatever lah.

Okay, I confess - I'm still sore with the guy after what he did to my Johor after 2013.

I really did lose quite a bit of my love for my home state after the mess that he did there.

Now, I'm really more at home in Pahang.

In fact, I'm now in Kuantan.

Staying at my best friend's place not far from the Istana Sultan Abdul Aziz, which is the actual home of Yang DiPertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah.

In fact, I can take a 15 minutes leisurely walk from where I'm writing now and be at the palace gate.

I love this place. Very peaceful, comfortable and quiet.

Perfect for a retreat from the MCO which has now been extended until Feb 18.

Well, as if things would get any better after that.

Do you think if Khaled Nordin is the czar in charge of things, Covid-19 will go away?

Nah, I don't think so.

I think most of you all are like me, resigned to fate.

What? New record high in number of cases?


New MCO? 


We have became numb.

The only concern is whether I still have a job or not.

Need to makan, okay.

The only good thing this time around, is that I now have a dartboard at home for the lockdown. I can practise and hopefully improve my game.

Like this Japanese guy living in Hong Kong whose videos I love so much,

You may noticed from the video that there is a Malaysian flag at his home.

He may have visited our country and loves it quite a bit.

It actually reminds me of our country's better days.

Hopefully, we could have such days again.

The need to not be hasty and emotional

 I agree with these lawyers,

Absurd to jail man 1,050 years for rape, say lawyers


1. “The judge has ignored the sentencing principle on the accused charged with multiple counts of the same offence. It is ridiculous as that amounts to imposing a natural life jail term,” he told FMT.

Sivananthan said this was a fit and proper case for a High Court judge to immediately review the matter to prevent miscarriage of justice.

2. Lawyer V Vemal Arasan said the judge should have allowed the accused time to engage counsel from the National Legal Aid Foundation to mitigate his crime.

“A counsel would have enlightened the court on the sentencing principle and urged the court to have the jail term run concurrently.” he said.

3. Lawyer Muhammad Rafique Rashid Ali said that in 2008, a three-member Court of Appeal bench led by Suryadi Halim Omar had asked trial judges to use established legal principles and logic before sentencing accused persons.

I know, people, including the High Court judge were upset over what the guy did, but that should not be the reason to make our judicial system looks weird like that.

No matter how guilty someone is, he/she shouldn't be sentenced like that and even more without even being represented by a lawyer.

It's a clear case of why we need the appellate court system.

A single judge deciding on a case shouldn't be a sure way for justice to be done.

The judge could be partial against or for the accused, maybe due to being angry about what he/she had done or due to personal reasons.

For instance, a judge may sentenced a politician to a long time in jail for corruption maybe because he/she does not like that guy's party or even just his face.

So, to make sure that doesn't happen, we have the Court of Appeal and Federal Court to get more learned and senior judges to check on that lower court judge's decision.

We do need this as Malaysians tend to judge someone a bit too fast.

Just because one group of politicians said another group of politicians are bad, we decided to change a government and get rid of the whole bunch, including the good ones from the accused group.

It turned out, the accusing group of politicians are as bad or even worse.

And unlike the courts of our judicial system, the court of public opinion doesn't have an appeal system.

We have to live with the outcome of our decision till the next general election....that is if there is a new free and fair election anymore lah.

Who knows, maybe the new bunch of politicians in power just decide "for the good of the nation" there should not be an election as we know it anymore.

To make it easier to manage the country, they would say. Like in China or North Korea.

Well, if you all make too much noise over it, they will just declare an Emergency. End of story. 


Eh, don't think too much and get depressed. Listen to this nice song instead,
