Let's ban those born after 2005 from buying beer and pork

This is interesting, I think.

Govt to ban cigarettes sale to those born after 2005


Health minister Khairy Jamaluddin in his speech at the World Health Organization’s (WHO) executive board meeting in Geneva yesterday said Malaysia hopes to pass a legislation this year which would bring about a “generation endgame to smoking”.

Quite a good idea, but I do wonder whether that violates the constitution as it imposes ban on certain group of people while not others.

I don't think it's the same as limiting the sale of cigarettes to adults because those born after 2005 will themselves soon be adults.

Some adults can buy cigarettes and smoke, while others can't, well, that's weird as by right enforcement of laws should apply fairly to everyone.

Anyway, how are they going to implement this proposed law?

Need to show IC to buy cigarettes? That's a bit tiresome, I think.

But don't get me wrong. I'm not against the reason this law was being proposed as I know that smoking is bad. 

I'm actually just asking from the point of law.

Don't want lah we simply come up with laws which foundation is constitutionally shaky.

Making laws shouldn't just simply hantam saja through short cuts.

Just look at our drug laws, which in my opinion are very bad, especially the part on mandatory death penalty for trafficking.

I wrote about that in this previous post;

But still, if those in power want to impose the proposed cigarette law, then they could just go ahead.

Maybe it will work and one day there will be no more cigarette in this country, even though I think people will simply switch to smoking ganja, which Syed Saddiq has been pushing for the government to legalise like in Thailand.

Good also that then we will have a precedent on how to easily make laws to protect Malaysians from other vices.

Later, I think, we should use the same  "generation endgame" concept of making law to rid the country of alcoholic beverages.

Those born after 2005 cannot buy beer, whisky, wine, sake, soju etc.

How about that?

Drinking alcoholic beverages is bad what.

With such a law, there will be no more drunk driving, drunk beating of wives, or stupid drunk beloved being so annoying after one or two cans of beer.

While we are at it, maybe we can come up with a similar law to ban pork.

I would vigorously support that.

Pork is bad also what. They said it got worms.

Beloved eating pork is actually quite disgusting, okay.

Ya, why not, right?

Chinese don't complain ya. Your next generation all can eat chicken. Healthier.

Johor Undi18 expert is sophisticated, and that's about it

 This is a cute report by FMT;

Race politics unlikely to sway young voters in Johor polls, says NGO

FMT, which editorial's political affiliation we all know, likes to come up with these sort of reports.

For this one, it quoted Undi-18 co founder Qyira Yusri .


“Young people tend to see past race and religion, although not entirely. They lean towards policy-based politicians. I think they will look at things like manifestos and election promises,” she told FMT.

Actually, her name is Nur Qyira Yusri. Not sure why FMT dropped the Nur part in its report.

I checked her profile and found her to be quite a successful professional, based on her qualifications.

She's based in KL and looked quite sophisticated.

Definitely not the typical Johor Malay kampung girl type.

I wonder how she became an expert of Johor politics or at least an expert at gauging voting trend among young people in Johor.

Anyway, are school leaver kids at 18 really don't care about their Malayness, Chineseness or Indianess when they make big decisions in life?

Voting the leaders of your country is a big decision, I think. 

Someone really need to do a survey at Foon Yew High School in JB (which I believe is the biggest Chinese school outside China) and ask the students who are about to graduate from there whether they ever consider their cultural and traditional heritage when making such decisions.

I like to bet that most of them do. And to be honest, I think most of them would be more comfortable to vote for candidates whom they believe would care more about the interests and welfare of their own race than anyone else. Naturally, such a candidate should be a Chinese.

That's just simply how it is.

You see, I have never been against Chinese schools and in fact I previously wrote many times in defence of those schools.

I even gave space for those who wrote about why Chinese schools should not be abolished such as this one;

So, this is really not me taking a dig at the Chinese or their school system or anything like that.

The truth is, I'm not even against those Chinese kids who prefer to vote a Chinese candidate rather than others of race different from theirs.

That's actually only natural as they were brought up being Chinese and mostly mixed with other Chinese kids in their schools.

Even in sekolah kebangsaan, Chinese kids tend to mix mostly with Chinese kids, the same with Malay, Indian, Orang Asli and other kids.

Of course there would be exceptions but those were the special kids.

Having said that, I have to insist that not all of those kids will continue to live in their own racial cocoon for the rest of their life.

Many of them are going to mature and appreciate having friends from other races and probably more willing to vote good candidates who are not of their own race.

Well, if not, how do you explain me, who many of you accused as being a racist, going around defending Chinese schools, Taiwan and the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.

Eh, even my beloved is a Chinese, who has a purely Chinese name, prays to Chinese gods as well as studied in Chinese school and Taiwanese university. That's as Chinese as anyone could get in this country, okay.

Oh, and my beloved eats pork and drinks beer all the time....urgh. Love is terrible.

Anyway, the sophisticated Qiyra lady was also quoted by FMT as saying that the Undi18 kids are very concerned about party hopping.


“Whichever party or coalition comes up with a firm stance on this issue, as well as a promise to tackle it, will be able to capture the youth vote,” she said.


Well, these are the state assembly frogs in Johor after 2018;

Hmmm...Umno to PBBM, Umno to PBBM, Umno to PBBM, Amanah to PKR, Amanah to PKR, Amanah to PKR, PKR to PPBM.

None jumped to Umno, MCA or MIC.

So I guess, young voters would see BN as the one which suffered the most from the frogs. Naturally BN should therefore be the one that likely going to be firmly against party hopping. 

And based on that logic of the sophisticated Qiyra lady, most of the Undi18 must then be inclined to vote for BN lah.

Hmmm...I better check that one with those soon to be Foon Yew High School graduates.

A good Johorean guy

 As far as I'm concerned, this is good news;

Johor Pribumi Bersatu ex-chief quits party to support BN

Anyway, I always like this Mazlan guy for his idealistic and outspoken character.

Mazlan, who was the Puteri Wangsa assemblyman is also a hardworking guy and not just all talks like so many other politicians.

Unfortunately, he only realised that Pribumi was actually quite messed up after GE14 and for that he spoke up about it.

That's how he got in trouble with Muhyiddin.

He actually didn't quit the party or his state exco post earlier because he felt obligated to serve his constituents and fulfill his duties in the state government instead of playing politics.

Mazlan is very much like his brother Maulizan, who was also a state exco member in the previously BN Johor government.

They are both idealistic, outspoken and hardworking.

Ok, I admit that the brothers sometimes looked a bit like some overweight funny gangsters in Korean comedy movies, but that actually suits their characters.

They looked rough but actually quite honest, which I think was better than all those handsome and sophisticated ,but deceitful politicians

Mazlan said he's not jumping to Umno or anything like that but instead he now supports BN knowing that the coalition is currently the best option for Johoreans.

I don't think he's a frog as he had on Jan 20 said that he was considering retiring from politics after fulfilling his duties.

Quite honourable if you asked me.

But too bad that he's retiring young as a character such as him is actually quite rare among politicians.

Well, I wish Mazlan all the best and hope that he remains true to himself.

Datuk Maulizan, if you are reading this, please take care of your brother. Don't let him ends up driving Grab or something like that to earn a living after this. I think Mazlan is actually quite capable of doing that rather than compromising his principles.

Truth about Azam Baki and a bit on Johor election

It was quite comical to see many people (especially pro-Pakatan crowd) jumping all over the place after Securities Commission cleared MACC boss Azam Baki from any wrong doing.

They are now accusing the SC of not being independent and doing government's biddings. 


I even have a young friend who complained that youths would find it hard to understand why SC came to such a conclusion.

I actually felt like telling him that young people should go through life more before thinking about such things but stopped myself from doing that as I know that would be pointless and politically incorrect in this age of Undi18.

Well, I believe my friend and other young people like him shouldn't worry too much about not finding the truth.

In case everyone forgets, Azam Baki has sued the self-styled journalist who started the whole accusation against him and they are going to court.

In court, everything will be put in the open and there will be nothing to hide.

So, Azam Baki will try to prove his innocence, while the journalist will reveal everything she has against him.

Everything will be factual, right?

No more trial by media or public lynching by street mob.

For those who already believe that Azam Baki is guilty, they should take comfort in the knowledge that the journalist is supposedly a lady of integrity and has been hailed as a heroic whistle blower.

Surely she would have all her facts ready to be presented in court for all to see.

Surely she didn't buta-buta accuse Azam Baki of being a corrupt person to suit the agenda of some politicians who wanted to paint the establishment as being a vampire that is drinking the blood of the rakyat....correct?

Well, just wait for the trial then, okay.

It's going to be either Azam Baki being factually proven to be a corrupt person or he'll get RM10 million from the journalist for defaming him.

As dramatic as a Korean courtroom drama, I think.

Moving on to the coming Johor election, I have to say that my sources in the state are still quite reliable.

They got it right that it will take place not long after the CNY celebration next month.

I believe they are going to be right again about the outcome of the poll.

They said BN will win with a landslide, sweeping the others into the longkang.

Okay, DAP will survive by clinging on to the edge of the longkang because they will still win in the Chinese-majority areas.

The only unfortunate thing about the coming state poll is that Khaled Nordin will almost certainly be fielded in his former state constituency of Permas and he will win there.

That's according to my sources in Johor too lah. Sigh.

They even said that Khaled will try to become MB again later on by using his CONNECTIONS.

But I don't believe them as I think they were trying to pull a prank on me.

That's just too crazy, okay.

Anyway, I hope to go to Johor once the campaigning starts.

I actually really hate writing without going on the ground.

Hopefully my boss will let me go there even though I know he can't belanja my trip because our company has not yet recover from the effects of Covid-19.

If I get the green light, I will go to Johor using my own money. Hopefully I have enough for the trip.

See how la.

With a strong mandate, Hasni could be as good as Ghani

My most trusted source in Johor told me that the state election is almost certain to be held immediately after the Chinese New Year holiday next month.

Well, that's good.

As I previously wrote, a new mandate for a stable state government is necessary for Johor to move forward from the current doldrums, which actually started in 2013..

Currently, the state government doesn't have much room to manoeuvre as its single majority in the legislative assembly means that it could be toppled at any time should it makes any decision that is unpopular among certain quarters.

As I believe most of you would agree, that has been the state of  the country's administration ever since  Pakatan won the general election in 2018.

Political frogs have been the ones who determined which parties should control Putrajaya as well as the state administrations.

It has been the same in Johor too after GE14.

One of the frogs in Johor is now in trouble for allegedly molesting a member of his party's Srikandi wing while they were going around, supposedly helping victims of the recent floods.

Guilty or not, the whole thing was quite sordid, if you asked me.

Really, the frogs are not very nice people after all.

Well, we can get rid of them at the planned state election.

Anyway, the way I see it, MB Hasni needs to lead a strong state government if he is to govern properly.

If he has a convincing mandate, then no one could interfere with his administration.

No one could flex his power and tell Hasi what to do or what not to do.

No one could demand things from him with a threat to get the frogs to pull out support for his administration in the state assembly.

Only then can Hasni say no to people who would try to influence his decisions as MB due to their vested interests in the state.

I think Hasni is capable of being a truly good MB if he has such a strong mandate.

I do have high hopes of him being as good as the last good Johor MB that is TS Abdul Ghani Othman.

As I remember it, Ghani had dared to say NO to even the most powerful if it's not in the best interest of Johor and its people.

Okay, maybe Hasni is a person of softer character than Ghani, but he is definitely stronger than Khaled Nordin....sigh, have to mention that name pulak.

Never mind.

So, all I'm hoping now is that for Hasni to insist on fielding a good line-up of candidates of his choice for BN in the state election.

If there is no interference from KL, I'm confident he could lead BN to a more than comfortable win in Johor .

He could then use the strong mandate to become a really good MB with an administration capable of doing things solely in the interests of RAKYAT negeri Johor.

Azam learning from the politicians...probably

 So, it has boiled down to this;

MACC chief files defamation suit against journalist


“In doing so, our client was merely asserting his rights as enshrined by the Federal Constitution and applicable laws, to seek the necessary and appropriate reliefs from the court and our client strongly believes that this will also provide the defendant a similar right and opportunity to justify her claims in court and not merely engage in a trial by the media,” reads the statement.

Journalists always kena sue what. Part of the job hazards.

I guess Azam learnt from Guan Eng and his father Kit Siang, Anwar, and many other politicians, who had sued journalists and won quite a lot of money.

Probably that's also the only real way to clear his name as he had been deemed guilty from the very start anyway.

No need to wait for the investigations to be completed as even if they later found him to be innocent, the damage has already been done.

Well, even if he wins the case in court, people will still say bad things about him and may even claim that the court was fixed.

But at least he will get RM10 million from the journalist, and that's a lot more than the value of the shares he was accused to have acquired corruptly.

Then again, that depends on whether he or the journalist was right.

If the journalist have all of her facts right, then she doesn't have to fear going to court.

I think Guan Eng, his father, Anwar and many others would agree with that.

I know that it's a bit of a hassle going to court, but that's part of the inconvenience that comes with the job of a journalist.

They cannot simply hantam and write whatever they want.

Honestly, I don't know why anyone wants to become a journalist considering the risks involved.

It actually offers only little in terms of salary, glamour and excitement for those who truly want to maintain journalism as a noble profession.

Most of the money, glamour and excitement in journalism ( at least in this country) are only for those who know how to play office politics and kiss ass in the newsroom.

Well, at least that's what I was told by journalist friends.

Anyway, I wouldn't worry about the journalist who was sued by Azam as she had already insisted that she got all her facts right.

The way she said it, I think she's going to win the case and Azam will then be forced to resign in shame.....I guess....

Errrr....I think so....

No way that she buta-buta wrote those articles to make people jump on Azam's head like that....right?

Never mind.

Hmmm, I do wonder whether Azam will also later sue other journalists who wrote as if he had already been found guilty these past few days.....

Guan Eng, his father, Anwar and many other politicians may likely do that if they were in his shoes...I think.

Can buta-buta make money one.

Let's sack Azam Baki and reappoint Latheefa Beebi Koya

Let's admit it, the MACC chief Azam Baki has already been judged guilty of corruption over the share ownership issue.

Just read the media headlines and the angle of the stories on it.

Really, there's no need to investigate anymore.

You can whack the guy all you want but if you even remotely suggest that he may be innocent, they will jump on your head.

The atmosphere is very much like before GE14.

Yeah, the government, should just sack and replace Azam with someone like....eerrr...Latheefa Beebi Koya....or maybe Ong Kian Meng.

That should restore MACC's credibility, I guess.

And maybe after that we can enjoy listening to secret recordings of husband and wife conversations again.

Never mind the rules and regulations or even the rules of law.


Well, actually I don't really care.

I'm quite tired of these trials by media stuff....or even worse, trials by social media.

All the self entitled idiots now believe that they should run the country because they have a Facebook or Twitter accounts.

So irritating. Especially, those who think that they are clever because their English is better than that of the orang kampung.

Sometimes I really feel like smacking their faces.

Anyway, I think I will just wait for the next general election and hopefully we can get a more stable government after that.

I think a stable government can do things properly again instead of bending to the wind like it is now.

Everyone jumps on the bandwagon and the government would follow suit. 

That's why it's so messy now.
