I applaud the decision by the Malaysian government to dismiss and not entertain any idea of allowing Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’ to return to this country.
Government Will Not Allow Chin Peng To Return, Says Najib
PUTRAJAYA, May 27 (Bernama) — The Malaysian government will not allow former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng to reside in the country.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the return of the former terrorist would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones during the CPM’s revolt from 1948 to 1981 (known as the Emergency).
The government is absolutely right, many victims suffered during the communist insurgency, Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us. No, I didn’t say that. Our very wise, informed and cultured Datuk Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais bin Yatim said that.
Several quarters and individuals, including Information, Communication and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim, have opposed the idea.
“Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us,” Rais had said.
“The communists abused this country and we had been shackled through killings and terrible actions committed by them,” he added.
We should never allow Chin Peng to come back to Malaysia. Thanks to our sensitive Defence Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for putting it in context.
Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said his return would be an insult to the families of nearly 50,000 British colonial and government troops who died during the “Malayan Emergency”. (psst, the 50,000 figure is a crap is you ask me)
But I have some disturbing questions.
1. Isn’t Chin Peng was just a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party? His party, Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) was supported by its China main counterpart throughout their four decades in Malaysia. My question is, why punish the puppet, but not the master? Obviously we should punish China!
Let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!
2. If I am not mistaken, China is ruled by Communist Party of China (CPC). So, let me get this right, China is ruled by a bunch of communists and why the hell we are courting them now? What happened to ‘the communist abused this country’ and ‘they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us?‘
What is our beloved Prime Minister doing frolicking in China then? Is he not worry that his visit would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones?
I repeat, let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit
3. If I remember correctly, the British and Japanese also killed a lot of people during their occupation of Malaya no? The British sure killed and injured a lot of people back then. Remember the fights by Tok Janggut, Dato’ Bahaman, Mat Kilau, Maharaja Lela? I bet my last cent the British killed more people here during their occupation compared to the emergency period.
How about the war crimes and astrocities the Japanese commited against the people of Malaya during World War II? Wait, did the communists kill less people than them?
Let’s severe all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with Japan and British (now Great Britain) to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the Japanese. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!
Well, I do not agree and I don’t really care if Chin Peng was a freedom fighter, but that’s beside the point. Just how much longer we want to live in the shadows of the past? May 13th, Malaya Emergency etc. often quoted by our leaders to ‘remind’ us, about what? You should know better. Selective issues, don’t you think? Why it is only Chin Peng not allowed to come back to Malaysia? How about other CPM leaders?
Conclusion: Only in Malaysia, it would seem like history has to dictate how we we live tomorrow. Rather sad.
ps: I am sure Chin Peng was not a freedom fighter. He’s taking arms for fun, just like how I shoot people for fun at my Counter Strike game. Okay, Let 4 Dead lah, nobody play CS now. Okay, bad joke.
pss: What is this ‘my father’, ‘my father’ and ‘my father’ crap keep repeated by Najib? He has no backbone to stand on his own? To claim his own credit, other that relying on his father’s name?

I’m not sure whether it’s in our water or food, but our recent new leaders seem to have a fondness for spouting popular-sounding slogans and catchy phrases…..and they seem to think Malaysians are still quite so gullible to swallow every slogan, hook, line and sinker……..
And it seems their team of so-called PR experts have come up with some hare-brained idea on how to actually and finally make those catchy sounding slogans work and accepted.
Know why Badawi’s Islam Hadhari died such a horrible and pathetic death?
And why Najib’s “1Malaysia” will “potentially” be successful? *ahem ahem*
Well, other than the fact that it seems pretty obvious that Najib’s team is working overtime with many recent popular moves (such as the child conversion and 30% bumi equity) to ensure his concept doesn’t die in the same embarrassing manner as Badawi (regardless of how superficial the efforts seem), it seems that they’ve finally found the “secret ingredient”……….*drum roll*
Contest for 1Malaysia song
KUALA KLAWANG, 27 April 2009: The Information, Communication and Culture Ministry will launch a contest to identify the best composer for the 1Malaysia song.
Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said just like other songs that inculcate patriotism in their composition, especially songs like Budi Bahasa Budaya Kita and those that promote reading, the ministry also wanted the 1Malaysia song lyrics to attract listeners.
“God willing, I hope we can get a good response from composers and we hope to pick the best composition,” he told reporters after attending a dinner hosted by Kelab Rekreasi Warga Tua, Kuala Klawang here last night.
Dr Rais who is also Jelebu Member of Parliament said the song would represent all races.
The 1Malaysia song, to be in composed in Bahasa Malaysia, would be widely aired on all TV and radio stations according to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s wishes.
YOU MEAN ALL THAT WAS MISSING WAS A THEME SONG!!!!????
Badawi must be slapping his forehead really hard 😛
Perhaps that is why our Malaysian National Service is so “well received” despite so many unneccesary deaths? Check out the “inspiring” music video that has gotten all our youths excited over National Service once again…….

Rais Yatim, the expert somersaulter is making the headlines again. We can never get enough stale, puke inducing statements from Umno ministers, even from the so called the ‘educated’ bunch. This bugger has a Phd I tell you, and his doctorate paper was titled – “Freedom under Executive Power in Malaysia: A Study of Executive Supremacy” which he dedicated to “all who have suffered from the tyranny of executive excesses.”
It mind boggling (actually, not really.. lah! just being polite here) that a person with such background and credentials would turn into a poppycock offering ridiculous opinions like “losing Pedre Brance aka Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore is a win-win situation”. Well, we can’t expect much from an intellectual whore, right? Oopss.. by calling Rais an intellectual whore, am I breaking any law here? *chuckles*
(Bernama) – The government is not looking to find fault with bloggers and other internet users but would like them to follow the law to ensure they did not misuse it.
Oh sure man! As long as we write like any of your MSM dogs, everything will be peachy. How about telling them to follow the law as well? Cannot lah double standards, and why singled out ‘bloggers and internet users?’
Minister of Information, Communication and Culture Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing only the right kind of information reached the masses.
Rais Yatim….OOPS!!….I mean “Living Dinosaur”….. 😛
“It is not that we are looking for faults all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. “Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed.
However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.
Twisted or misinterpreted, u say??? How about misquoted? You think people are dumb like you? My foot twisted and misinterpreted. I bet people misintepreted you when you said “Bok House is not a heritage building“, when you actually wanted to say it is??? What?? Come on lah, we are not so smart like you to decipher what are you trying to say, stop confusing stupid people like us.
“If the right information does not reach the people how can there be success?
Hey Mr. Living-Dinosaur-Minister, please elaborate what is the RIGHT information?
What is NOT raising racial sentiments!!???
Jangan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan – Utusan Malaysia
Pemimpin politik dan badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) Melayu kelmarin menyeru orang Melayu bangkit bersatu bagi menghadapi tuntutan kaum lain yang semakin keterlaluan.
Kita menyeru kepada bukan Melayu supaya jangan lagi membangkitkan dan mencabar ketuanan Melayu yang berkaitan dengan agama Islam sebagai agama rasmi, kedaulatan raja-raja Melayu dan hak istimewa orang Melayu.
Dalam menjaga keharmonian dan kesejahteraan hidup masyarakat majmuk, elok rasanya kita jangan mengungkit dan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan.
Terimalah apa yang telah diberikan.
Mengapa masa kini perpaduan kaum dilihat kian longgar.
Jika kita kembali merenung lima tahun lalu, suasana perpaduan kaum kita dicemburui oleh negara-negara lain.
Tetapi kenapa sejak pilihan raya umum 2008, suasana tiba-tiba berubah.
Dengan pelantikan Perdana Menteri baru yang membawa bersamanya gagasan Satu Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Prestasi Diutamakan, inilah masa untuk semua kaum bersatu membina negara kita mengharungi cabaran yang mendatang.
Alangkah baiknya jika kita ketepikan sengketa dan perbalahan atas nama politik.
Semua kaum harus sedar bahawa tunjang kestabilan negara ini ada di tangan orang Melayu.
Jika orang Melayu sendiri sudah berpecah kepada kumpulan-kumpulan yang memihak kepada parti politik tertentu dan yang tidak peduli apa pun yang berlaku, kestabilan negara boleh goyah.
Kesan perpecahan itu dapat kita lihat dan rasai sekarang.
Di samping itu, kaum bukan Melayu tidak sepatutnya mengambil kesempatan. Akibat perpaduan kaum tidak dijaga dan dipertahankan, ia turut menjejaskan kegiatan ekonomi dan hubungan masyarakat.
Para pemimpin yang mewakili masyarakat berbilang kaum patut menghentikan salah menyalah antara satu sama lain.
Sesungguhnya kedudukan orang Melayu dalam negara ini harus dihormati sebagaimana mereka banyak bertolak ansur dengan bukan Melayu.
Ambillah iktibar kekecohan politik negara Thai. Banyak kerugian ditanggung oleh kerajaan. Malah majoriti rakyatnya tidak menyokong tindakan yang merosakkan imej negara mereka.
Kita hanya ingin memperingatkan bahawa tindak-tanduk perpecahan di kalangan masyarakat majmuk sedang menjadi tontonan negara lain. Mereka sedang mengintai peluang untuk campur tangan jika kita terus lalai dan tidak bersatu.
Oleh itu, semua pemimpin politik dan masyarakat perlu membuat memikirkan masa depan anak cucu kita.
Bersatulah pertahankan perpaduan kaum yang telah kita bina lebih 52 tahun lalu. Jangan diulangi kesilapan lampau hingga kita dijajah lebih 400 tahun lamanya.
Segala kemajuan yang kita kecapi hari ini adalah atas dasar kerjasama dan perkongsian kuasa melalui kerajaan Barisan Nasional. Relakah kita melihat segala impian yang dibina hancur berkecai akibat perpecahan antara kaum.
Dalam konteks ini, tanamkan semula semangat perpaduan dengan didahulukan oleh parti-parti politik.
Translation? I am not going to waste my time translating this shit.
Basically, this hired mouthpiece of UMNO, party of our Prime Minister, who incidentally coined up the “1Malaysia” slogan, is telling us this :-
*Princes of Earth -ledge your souls to UMNO, to ensure peace and prosperity, ehem… of course prosperity is subjected to certain individuals only.
*Others – SHADDUP!! and obey. Wag your tail. Eat shit or whatever. Just RESPECT the princes becuse we’ve tolerated you for far too long.
*Progress and stability of the nation – exclusively for BN, one and only.
And because we’ve yet to hear even a whimper from our glorious PM and his bunch of yo-yos on this piece of crap, it’s a silent endorsement of sorts, on their intepretation of what Najib’s “1Malaysia” is all about, isn’t it?
Now aren’t we just about the luckiest bunch on this side of Mother Earth to have a great “People First” cabinet working for our well-being? Ah, we are so blessed! One thing I must give it up to BN, it is good at sloganeering. Damn freaking good! Not going to post it here, save you from puking. What? When Samyvellu came up with the ‘Rejuvenation’ campaign for MIC with him at the lead, you can tell these slogans are pretty much, rubbish!
So folks, STOP DREAMING AND GO BACK TO WORK!!! THE GAHMEN NEEDS OUR MONEY!!!!!

Canteen helper sells her body to support family
A WOMAN who works as a canteen helper in the morning works as a prostitute at night to support her family, China Press reported.
The lady, who wished to be known only as Fatimah, 22, said she had to support her husband, who is an odd-job worker, and their one-year-old son.
“Besides that, I will have to foot my old folks’ medical bills,” she said, adding that she had been prostituting herself for more than three years in Alor Setar.
Fatimah, from Pahang, said she was forced to be a prostitute by her former boyfriend, and charged her customers RM80 each time.
“However, I am getting older and also have given birth. Now, I can only charge RM50,” she said, adding that her customers were aged between 13 and 70.
The daily reported that Fatimah’s dream was to save enough money to start a new life in three years’ time.
A good friend once mentioned about a lady she knew as a child, who was a neighbour. The poor woman was left to fend for herself and her 4 children after her husband got caught stealing milk powder for the kids and was sent to prison for a good number of years.
Being a housewife with no employable skills, she had no choice but to turn to prostitution to put food on the table and roof over their heads.
When her husband was released, instead of understanding and appreciating her sacrifice, he left her. She was also ostracised by everyone in the neighbourhood.
I may not know anyone personally who has been in that situation, but I can truly understand why those mothers did what they had to do. My mother would have done the same, in fact I would have sold off my kidneys for the same reason if I had to. Please allow me to exaggerate and generalise to a certain extent that, if a comparison must be made, I would say most parents love their children more than the latter love their parents.
Parental love is not something that can be described in words and it goes without saying that a mother’s love is instinctual, unconditional, and forever.
Young mothers especially, either retrenched or abandoned, are resorting to committing crime for their children’s sake. How many of you realise that there’s been quite an increase of reports about mothers being sent to prison for stealing for their young?
What on earth is happening to this society? And what will become of the next generation, raised in an environment where only desperation, poverty and lawlessness prevails?
“The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied…but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing. “- John Berger
Since I can remember, all our past and present government leaders have been singing the same old tiresome tune about championing the poor and eradicating poverty and improving the social welfare services…….
And till today, we still see the same snail-pace processing of genuine cases. Till today, we still see these so-called heads of various governmental welfare departments (who are usually so well fed that they’re practically dripping with fat) dragging their feet in disbursing measly sum of welfare aid to the poor.
Ella Mae totally hit the nail on the spot when she said this…..
“That’s how our society is. We are ever so willing to raise funds for disasters thousands of miles away but when our own neighbour is in need… we don’t do anything.
This is what i believe, each one of us can make a difference in this world. We must look out for our neighbours, friends and loved ones.
I am not saying we give away big sums of money, but if we can share our food with those who are in need… we too can make some difference in this nasty world.”

“Najib adopts people-first leadership style” exclaimed Wong Chun Wai at the Star on the 9th of Feb! That stupid servant of a f***king bitch has the balls to parade around his zealously idiotic and obvious statement to bluff only the illiterate making a contemptuous mockery of the rest of the Malaysians who are more politically and socially conscientious and knowledgeable.
Hey uncle! Do you, this despicable tramp know the meaning of democracy? A leader in a democratic society is by default, a leader with people-first mentality! Do you need a secondary school RE-education in history? You seem so bedazzled to suddenly think of our future PM as the first ‘democratic Messiah’ Malaysians have ever had in our 50 years of DEMOCRACY!
Are you trying to convince us or bamboozle yourself with your own ignorance and stupidity? Yes, indeed for the past 5 decades, Malaysia is a place for anarchy and despotism, in case you are mentally retarded, I was being sarcastic there (learning to state the obvious from you, uncle).
Let me quote a statement from you:
“Most times, the remarks are candid and no holds barred. Najib is equally open with his feelings.”
Are you referring to the incident where he wanted to bathe the keris in Chinese blood? Is that the no-holds-barred truth you are referring to or conveniently try to forget hoping that the rest of us are as forgetful as you, uncle? Just to let you know, at your age, you are more prone to alzheimer or dementia compared to the remainder of more than 50% of the Malaysian population.
Again let me quote from you:
“He (Najib) carefully takes down notes of cases he needs to follow up while his aides listen attentively.”
His aides should be the RAKYAT too, no? Isn’t Perak by democratic default, be under the leadership of PR through the POWER of the RAKYAT? You can’t possibly brag about how socially conscentious Najib is, yet knowing that he resort to establishing a BN state government in Perak in objectionably undemocratic and ethically repugnant way, against the WISHES of the RAKYAT!
Is this so-called the PEOPLE-FIRST LEADERSHIP that you flaunt, on behalf of Najib, so nonchalantly? If you don’t know about the change in governance in Perak, then it is clear your general knowledge is severely lacking and your so-called journalistic professionalism and Dato’ship are just pooh-bahs.
Another statement which I can’t help but quote from you again:
“…Najib made another refreshing commitment – the Government will examine and make necessary changes to its policies to regain the people’s trust and confidence after losing their support in the March 8 polls.”
May I ask again for the umpteenth time, how in your opinion is he going to regain our trust? So far since last general election, time and again, you are trying to reassure YOURSELF only that this datuk or that Dato’ has been doing with the Rakyat’s best interest at heart. Let me just quote you an example, BN has been serenading outside your window for the umpteenth time to improve public transport, expand and improve the rail network with a politically dubious “CLEAN STATE” which left you in hormonal, teenage-like lust for BN. No?! I dare you to refute my claims.
I hate Malaysia’s political scene and I can’t be bothered to immerse myself in political conspiracy kerfuffles cooked up by our ‘beloved’ politicians as I don’t find myself becoming more intelligent or educated in the process. The only skill I can possibly pick up if I immerse myself long enough in this unnostalgic politics is learning the skill to be a hated figure. Look at Najib, look at Jelapang’s Hee, look at Badawi. Enough said.

Have a good look a the picture below, ladies and gentlemen. This …. is the face of a prostitute.
She may not be the prettiest lass in town…..heck…who am I kidding…she gives all the other good looking people from Perak a bad name…She just looks ugly. But don’t let her …not so beautiful looks deceive you. She is…the Number 1 prostitute in Perak.
She…my friends…is the lady who I had voted for in the recent 2008 General Elections.
She goes by the name – Hee Yit Foong.
But, for the people of Jelapang, she’s currently fondly referred to as … the Prostitute of Jelapang.
No one knows what’s the exact amount she received, but the Prostitute of Jelapang (PoJ for short) up there is rumoured to have received millions for her body…for her soul….making her..by far…the highest paid prostitute in Perak…Malaysia…South East Asia…and probably the world. One more thing Malaysians can be proud off. The highest paid prostitute in the World.

Girl : Hello, my boss asked me to find out whether your boss celebrates Chinese New Year or not. He wants to send over a hamper.
Me : My boss is chinese, so I think he does (aiyoh…want to send, just send-lah, dun need to ask mah)
Girl : But your boss is Christian right? So he celebrates Christmas or Chinese New Year?
Me : *Speechless*
Funny thing is that this girl is not the first who has asked me that. And I can’t blame them for being confused.
So, what exactly is Chinese New Year all about? Is it cultural or religious?
Hhhhmm……for those still in Blur-Zone, let me attempt to clear this misconception then.
Chinese New Year is basically the chinese community celebrating the first day of the first lunar month of the lunisolar Chinese calender (as opposed to the Gregorian calender).
There are many legends as to the origins of the Chinese New Year celebrations but the one I found most fascinating would probably be the one about an evil ferocious beast called “Nien” who likes to snack on the chinese people on the eve of the new year. Because “Nien” fears the colour red and bright lights, the chinese would put up red decorations, wear red, light fireworks, etc to keep it away.
I suppose that explains the practice of over-indulgence of red all over town during this time of the year.
In many Chinese households, where Buddishm and Taoism are prevalent, rituals involving prayers and offerings of joss-sticks to the gods, especially the “Choy San Yeh” (Prosperity God) are carried out during the Lunar New Year. However, chinese of other religions do conduct their own prayers, but usually more private in nature, hence it’s only natural to assume that the Chinese New Year is only celebrated by the Buddists and Taoists.
Other than the prayer part, other forms of celebration such as the “ang pow” giving, wearing of red, reunion dinners, etc are purely cultural…..they may have originated from some superstition or pagan legend, but because these practices have been so commercialised that the paganistic meaning behind each action has sort of been lost……..reminds one very much of Christmas celebrations, what with the christmas trees and Santa Claus.
Check out http://chinese-new-year.123holiday.net/ for more details on the Chinese New Year, it’s origins, superstitions and practices 😀
And besides, as Malaysians, we celebrate just about every other festivals don’t we? Any festival is an excuse for binging and more binging and of course fellowship with loved ones ;D
So, here’s wishing all my dearest fellow Dandies and everyone out there…..GONG XI FA CHAI!!!!!! May The Year Of The Ox Be A Bullish One!!!

OMG!!!!! Not another one!!!!!!
DEATH IN CUSTODY
On Wednesday, 21 January 2009, the family of KUGAN A/L ANANTHAN lodged a police report at IPD Subang Jaya with S.JAYATHAS Police Watch Malaysia, Lawyer N.Surendran, Kapar MP YB.Manikavasagam and Makkal SAKTHI.
POLICE WATCH MALAYSIA
Apparently, Kugan was arrested for stealing cars or something like that (must be some bigshot politician’s car huh?), and definitely did not warrant being tortured as the scars bear evidence!!
Police claimed that he died from asthma attack…..yea right…….asthma as a result of being attacked!!!???
Remember this other one that took place in Dec 23 2008?
A chap by the name of Prabakaran was arrested along with another teenager only known as Solomon. Both taken to Brickfields police stations. Both got abused. Prabakaran was poured hot boiling water on him. Subsequently, only after getting media attention, 7 police officers were charged. But apparently, the 17 year old Solomon is still missing.
This is really getting out of hand!!! What sort of law enforcement team have we employed? Is our police force a sort of legalised thuggish association? Is our police chief actually some “Godfather” wannabe? Why is it that most of the deaths involves suspects from a particular ethnic background?
Why am I asking such stupid questions that screams with obvious answers!!??
Back in 2003, the Asian Human Rights Commission reported that 2.2 persons per month died while in police custody (Read http://www.ahrchk.net/ua/mainfile.php/2003/458/ for more details on the report) and believed that the actual figure could reach up to at least one person killed per week because many cases had been left unreported or undetected.
In Amnesty Internation’s 2008 report (Read http://thereport.amnesty.org/eng/Regions/Asia-Pacific/Malaysia), at least 10 persons have died while being held up in police lock-ups last year. And while the police claimed all deaths were either due to suicide or health problems, many family members of the deceased have claimed to see bruises and wounds on the dead bodies.
Coupled with the recent police brutality on peace-loving candle-vigilers, it’s really not that hard to believe stories of torture in police hold-ups, is it?
What happened to the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC)!!?? Why are all our very vocal state and natonal police chiefs and the Home Minister so quiet on this matter?
Malaysians need to be demanding for answers, for heads to roll…….for as long as this is not looked into, no Malaysians will be safe………Not from the criminals and certainly not from the very ones who supposedly pledged to maintain peace and security.
