An Open Letter to Mr P Waythamoorthy and Hindraf Committee Members

Dear Mr P Waythamoorthy and Hindraf Committee Members:

First of all, I wish to express my most heartfelt congratulations on your success in ending more than 50 years of hardships endured by your fellow Indians in Malaysia. As you ended your hunger strike not too long ago, now is the time of celebration to enjoy sumptuous food, Indian mutton chicken is my favourite food, I think you like it too.
Your achievement is remarkable and I think the Malaysian Government should nominate you for the Martin Luther King Legacy Award in America for your sacrifice to make significant contributions in race relations, justice and human rights in Malaysia. If they reject the Malaysia government’s nomination, it is still okay as you may still be conferred a Datukship or Tan Sriship after 5th May 2013 in Malaysia, as in the case of Jelapang ADUN Mdm Hee Yit Foong, who, like you, fearlessly fought for justice and equality (Mdm Dato Hee was not provided a state-sponsored vehicle when she was with Perak PR-led government, it was really not fair and just to her).
Nevertheless, I felt very prompted to write you a letter when I heard of your history-making achievement at 5pm this afternoon. I just simply want to share a family story with you…
More than 50 years ago, my daughter Indianah was conned into giving herself to a guy called Ummnooo. Ummnooo has always treated my daughter like a nobody; mental torture and verbal insults are part or parcel of her daily life, and sometimes physical abuse. In spite of more than 50 years' requests to grant her proper “status”, Ummnooo just wants her to remain stateless so he can continue his arrogance and threaten to send her back to me so he can use it to embarrass my entire family. Sometimes I feel my daughter is just a sex toy to him - no status, no money, no security and there was one occasion where Umnooo kept on kicking and hitting the head of my daughter’s pet, a cow … calling her stupid while torturing her pet in front of so many people.
More than 50 years of suffering suddenly comes to a very interesting twist when another handsome guy Pi-R appears. If I am not wrong, Pi-R told my daughter to leave Ummnooo and elope with him. He promised a better future and would treat her with honour, dignity and respect. I am not sure whether Pi-R can be trusted but when Ummnooo found out Pi-R was after my daughter Indianah, he first tried to threaten her, slapped her and said: “I can live without you, get lost now”. My daughter really did it in 2008 and she eloped with Pi-R.
The thick-skinned Ummnooo realised how important my daughter is to him. My daughter is hardworking and most of the time Ummnooo does not even bother to provide allowance for her and she has to stay hungry sometimes. Where to find such a good and cheap labourer??? So Ummnooo started a new strategy to win my daughter back. Firstl he went to Korea to have comestic surgery to make him look nicer, younger and of course stronger. He has come to my daughter many times after the surgery and continued to make even more beautiful promises. I am happy and worried at the same time. Ummnooo may have changed his ugly face through surgery but there is no way he can change his heart overnight. And Ummnooo’s relatives and friends have never failed to cast disparaging remarks on my daughter, one of them is Puki-flee Nodick. Yesterday somebody told me he was going to stand as a candidate in the election, puki puki…pui!!! And I am very afraid that Ummnooo may get influenced by his relatives and friends and start to torture my daughter again.
My daughter is very very confused now. Someone who has called her a whore for 50 years is now treating her like a young pretty princess and since she has slept with Ummnooo on the same bed for more than 50 years, she is going to give Ummnooo a chance.
I respect her decision and at the same time, I think I owe Pi-R a debt of gratitude for without Pi-R Ummnooo will never realise how important my daughter is, Ummnooo will never appreciate her sacrifice and surely he will continue to torture her and let her remain “stateless”.
I just told my daughter this afternoon: “Ummnooo has never loved you, never cherished you … but he merely needs you now to satisfy his urgent “needs” … Indianah, you don’t have to thank Pi-R, but neither do you have to be unkind to him (because Ummnooo asks you to accuse Pi-R of being a seducer).

Oh oh, sorry for the digression and I am getting a bit emotional…sorry sorry…
Last but not least, I sincerely wish all my fellow Indian friends the best!

With Deepest Love & Warmest Regards,
Benjamin Loi

PLEASE ARREST MAHATHIR FOR SEDITION, MALAYS ARE NOT STUPID!!!

Mahathir posted his article claiming that "MERITOCRACY IS RACIST", what Mahathir is indirectly trying to say is that Malays are stupid or were born stupid, so any form of fair competition between Malays and other races, they will surely lose out. Though I am a Chinese, Mahathir has insulted the intelligence of many of my Malay relatives and friends. Let's lodge a police report nationwide to bring him to jail...he can call Ibrahim Ali stupid, but not all the Malays!!

His article is reproduced below as well as my reply to him:
---------------------------------------
1. In 1964 Malaysia held its first elections. The Tunku had an understanding with the Chief Minister of Singapore, Mr Lee Kwan Yew that the PAP (People Action Party) would contest only in Singapore and would stay out of the rest of Malaysia. It was really not a smart kind of agreement. It was not put on paper at all. Only an understanding between two leaders.

DEAR MAHATHIR: BECAUSE TUNKU ALSO PROMISED LEE NOT TO CONTEST IN SINGAPORE, BUT HE BROKE THE PROMISE BY CAMPAIGNING FOR UMNO CANDIDATES IN SINGAPORE. ELECTION RESULT: UMNO LOST IN ALL MALAY-MAJORITY CONSTITUENCIES IN SINGAPORE. UMNO WAS ALARMED AT THE PROSPECTS OF THE "SPILLOVER" EFFECTS!!!


2. It was not surprising that the PAP decided to contest in the peninsular. Lee had expected the Malaysian Chinese who had been represented in the Government only by the MCA could be persuaded to support him. If he defeated the MCA then the Tunku would replace the MCA with the PAP in the Alliance.

DEAR MAHATHIR: PAP DID NOT HAVE TO DEFEAT MCA TO REPLACE THEM IN THE ALLIANCE. IN FACT, INVITATION WAS EXTENDED TO PAP TO BE IN THE ALLIANCE.


3. The PAP is a Chinese party largely. But it had always projected itself as non-racial. To win in Malaysia he had to appeal to Chinese chauvinism. However he could not do this openly.

DEAR MAHATHIR: WHAT IS CHINESE CHAUVINISM? ASKING FOR FAIR TREATMENT AND POLICIES ARE CHINESE CHAUVINISM?? YOU THINK MR. LEE KUAN YEW WHO SPEAKS LITTLE CHINESE IS A CHINESE CHAUVINIST?


4. Being the astute politician that he is, Lee came up with a slogan which did not sound chauvinistic but which played up Chinese sentiments to the core. The slogan was "Malaysian Malaysia".

DEAR MAHATHIR: MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA IS ABOUT AN ASPIRATION TO MAKE MALAYSIA A TRULY "INCLUSIVE" COUNTRY. EVERYBODY COUNTS...

5. While appearing to be appealing for all Malaysians the slogan was clearly suggesting that there was no equality between the Chinese and the Malays. He and his party was made out to be fighting for equality between the Chinese and the Malays, whereas the MCA represented only the Chinese towkays.

DEAR MAHATHIR: MR. LEE MENTIONED TIME AND AGAIN ABOUT IMPROVING THE STANDARD OF LIVING OF POOR MALAY FARMERS BY ENABLING THEM TO BE MORE COMPETITIVE. HE WAS ALSO FIGHTING FOR THE INEQUALITY BETWEEEN POOR MALAYS AND RICH MALAYS. MCA REPRESENTED MORE THAN CHINESE TOWKAYS AT THAT TIME. THROUGHOUT YOUR 22 YEARS OF PREMIERSHIP, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVE MALAYS SKILLS AND EMPLOYABILITY?? YOU ONLY FATTENED THE COFFERS OF YOUR CRONIES!!!


6. The Malays were alarmed at the prospect of the Peninsular Chinese combining with Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak Chinese to outnumber them. Split as they were between PAS and UMNO, their chances of continuing to dominate Malaysian politics was at risk.

DEAR MAHATHIR: IF WE PUT MALAYSIA AS OUR PRIORITY, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO OUTNUMBER WHO...


7. Strangely the PAP bid failed against the MCA. But the Tunku was shocked and decided that Singapore's inclusion in Malaysia posed great danger. One year after the election Singapore was expelled. But the PAP chauvinistic legacy was taken up by the DAP. And the slogan "Malaysian Malaysia" continued to figure in Malaysian politics, evolving into a new catchword, "Meritocracy". If "Malaysian Malaysia" conjures equality between races, "Meritocracy" implies something stronger. It implies dominance by the race with the greatest merit in every field; in education, in business and in all fields of human endeavour.

DEAR MAHATHIR: I SERIOUSLY DON'T THINK MALAY CAN'T BE THE GREATEST IN EVERY FIELD. MALAYS, CHINESE, INDIANS, IBAN, MELANAU, ETC ARE ALL BORN WITH A BRAIN AND IT ALL DEPEND ON HOW WE TRAIN OUR BRAINS AND APPLY OUR BRAINS. SO WHY MALAYS CAN'T BE THE GREATEST? MAYBE I TELL YOU THE REASON WHY:
A). THEY ARE TOLD THEY WERE BORN STUPID AND BEYOND HOPE. (PLEASE READ YOUR BOOK "THE MALAY DILEMMA).

B). THEY ARE TAUGHT BY STUPID TEACHERS, LECTURERS AND UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS WHO ALSO THINK "WE WERE BORN STUPID". THOSE TEACHERS, LECTURERS AND UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS ARE SO AFRAID OF "MERITOCRACY" BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE "SECOND-CLASS", HOW CAN YOU EXPECT "SECOND-CLASS" PROFESSORS TO CHURN OUT "FIRST-CLASS" STUDENTS??? THEY MUST BE ALL REPLACED WITH FIRST-CLASS PROFESSORS FOR THE BENEFITS OF MALAY STUDENTS. THEREFORE, YOU SEE MANY "UNQUALIFIED" PROFESSORS" IN OUR "NATIONAL" UNIVERSITIES, THEY CONTINUE TO PREACH THE MESSAGE OF "THOU ART STUPID" TO MALAY STUDENTS.

C). IT IS PROVEN THAT MALAYS ARE NOT STUPID. LOOK AT MALAY ARTISTS, DANCERS, SPORTMEN, SINGERS, ETC...EVEN BEING MAT REMPIT REQUIRES BRAINS+PHYSICAL STRENGTH+ COURAGE!!! LOOK AT PROFESSORS LIKE BAKRI MUSA, AZLY RAHMAN, ETC...HOW CAN U SAY MALAY ARE STUPID??? ENGKAU ORANG INDIA, TAPI PUN TAK BOLEH HINA KAWAN MELAYU KU!!!

D). MALAY BUSINESSMEN ARE SPOILT BY YOU TO BELIEVE THAT "WE ARE WEAK"!!


8. When the Malays, understanding the implications, protest against meritocracy, they were condemned as racists. Faced with being labelled as such, most Malays dared not support even the NEP. Some, perhaps due to mistaken pride have begun to support meritocracy, undermining the Malay position further.

DEAR MAHATHIR: THOSE MALAYS WHO OPPOSE MERITOCRACY ARE LIKE YOU WHO BELIEVE MALAYS ARE STUPID AND BEYOND ANY HOPE AND REDEMPTION. AGAIN, LET ME REPEAT MYSELF, MALAYS CAN BE THE GREATEST IN ALL FIELDS. THEY NEED CONFIDENCE, THEY NEED THE BEST TEACHERS, LECTURERS AND PROFESSORS (UNFORTUNATELY OUR MINISTRY OF EDUCATION IS THE DUMPING GROUND FOR THE UNEMPLOYED AND "UNABLE"). THEY NEED A STRONG FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF THEM DURING THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS (ASK HOW MANY MALAY FATHERS REALLY CARE FOR THEIR CHILDREN EDUCATION???), SOME OF THEM ARE BUSY WITH THEIR SECOND, THIRD, FORTH WIVES...


9. Today we see a lot of Malay NGOs trying to defend the Malay position. Invariably they have been labelled racists. The unfortunate truth is that those who labelled them are equally racists because of their advocacy of meritocracy.

DEAR MAHATHIR: THESE NGO MEMBERS ARE BELIEVERS OF "MALAYS ARE STUPID", SO THEY THINK MERITOCRACY WILL FINISH THEM OFF. THESE NGO MEMBERS THENSELVES MAY BE STUPID, BUT NOT MALAY PEOPLE!!!

10. It is the same with political party which appeal on the basis of the religion of Islam. In Malaysia the Malays are all Muslims. There are quite a large number of Indian Muslims in Malaysia but they do not figure in the political party said to be Islamic. The party, by using Islam, knows full well they are appealing to Malays almost exclusively. But the intention is not to defend the Malays but merely to gain their support. One can say they are not Malay racists. Rather they are Malay political opportunists.

DEAR MAHATHIR: PAS IS BETTER BECAUSE PAS WILL TELL MALAYS THAT "THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN ALLAH SHALL GAIN WISDOM BECAUSE ALLAH IS ALMIGHTY"--THIS IS TRUE ISLAM. HOW CAN SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES IN ALLAH ALMIGHTY BE STUPID?? INSTEAD THEY SHALL PROSPER IN ALL THINGS. (I READ THE QURAN-ENGLISH VERSION). THOSE WHO REFUSE TO LET MUSLIMS DEVELOP THEIR SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM ARE ANTI-ISLAM. HOW CAN "UMNO-MUSLIMS" LIVE IN A PARADOX THAT THEY BELIEVE IN THE ALL-MIGHTY ALLAH, AND YET THEY ARE STUPID? LOOK AT PAS, THEY ARE THE TRUE BELIEVERS OF ISLAMIC FAITH!


11. That is why they find no difficulty in switching tactics in order to win the support of the non-Malays. Where before they condemn UMNO for working with non-Muslims, today their co-operation with non-Muslims knows no bounds.

DEAR MAHATHIR: ALLAH CREATED MANKIND, SO YOU AND I WERE CREATED BY ALLAH, AGREE? PAS WORKS WITH NON-MUSLIMS TO WIN THEM OVER FOR ALLAH. WHY? BECOZ NON-MUSLIMS SEE U AND OTHER UMNOPUTRAS, THEY WILL NEVER WANT TO BE MUSLIMS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE. BUT WHEN THEY SEE RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN, NIZAR, KHALID SAMAD, DR. ZUKEFLY, TOK GURU NIK AZIZ, EVEN ANWAR IBRAHIM, THEY ARE ATTRACTED TO THEM. SO PAS IS DOING A GOOD JOB FOR THE KINGDOM OF ALLAH TO EXTEND THE MERCY OF ALLAH TO NON-BELIEVERS....BUT LOOKING AT THE WAY YOU TREATED ANWAR, I PUI PUI PUI, MUNTAH DARAH!...

12. The difference between UMNO and the other parties is that UMNO is openly partisan, not hiding its concern for the well-being of the Malays. Unfortunately because of mismanagement it has become weak. That is why today we have Perkasa and other Malay NGOs who are as openly concerned about the Malays as the UMNO once was. The condemnation by those said to be advocating meritocracy is because they see the racism of the meritocrats, just as the Malays of 1964 saw the racism of "Malaysian Malaysia".

DEAR MAHATHIR: PERKASA IS LED BY A STUPID WHO WANTS PEOPLE TO BE STUPUD AS HE IS...


13. What we are seeing today is not a campaign against racism but a campaign by racists against racists. The meritocrats are as much racists as the Malay NGOs, and Perkasa.

DEAR MAHATHIR: THEY ARE MANY MALAY MERITOCRATS...LET'S HAVE A FULL MALAY GOVERNMENT CABINETS, FULL OF ABLE, HONEST, RIGHTEOUS AND GOD-FEARING MALAYS WHO HAVE SHOWN THE QUALITIES TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE FIELDS OF EXPERTISE. BUT YOUR UMNO IS WILLING TO MAKE WAY TO THEM? MY DREAM TEAM (100% MALAY CABINET)
1. ANWAR IBRAHIM (PRIME MINISTER)
2. TOK GURU NIK AZIZ
3. ZAID IBRAHIM
4. NAZIR NAJIB
5. KHALID SAMED
6. DR ZULKIFLY
7. DR. BAKRI MUSA (PLS MAKE HIM MANPOWER/HUMAN RESOURCE MINISTER)
8. DR. AZLY RAHMAN (EDUCATION MINISTER)
9. TUNKU ABDUL AZIZ
10. RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN (MAKE HIM MINISTER WITHOUT PORTFOLIO)
11. DR SYED HUSSIN ALI
I CAN PROVIDE A LIST OF MORE THAN 120 MALAYS WHO WILL FOR SURE MAKE MALAYSIA "A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY"!!! BUT YOU AND YOUR UMNO WILL NEVER ALLOW THEM TO COME TO POWER.

14. Incidentally by writing this I know the meritocrat racists will condemn me as racist. So be it.

DEAR MAHATHIR: YES, YOU ARE!!

Brunei Smartest, Singapore Smarter, Sarawak Stupid, Sabah Most Stupid Beyond Redemption!! (Part-1. Brunei)

I don't have to be a Malaysian history expert or professor to talk about the formation of Malaysia. Tunku Abdul Rahman "invited" Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to form "Federation of Malaysia" with Malaya. Therefore, Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore could have more privileges and special rights than "any of the states in Malaya", in short, they should not be deemed as just one of the states in the Federation of Malaysia, they ought to be treated as a "treaty-member" with Malaya!

Let's look at Brunei in Part-1:
-------------------------------------------

The Brunei Sultanate would have ceased to exist as an independent state without Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saiffuddien.
In August 1963, Indonesia was opposing the proposed Federation of Malaysia and confronting Malaya and Singapore. Only eight months earlier, on 8 December 1962, Brunei had faced a revolt by Sheikh Azahari of the Partai Rakyat Brunei (PRB) and British forces from Singapore had flown in to put down the rebellion.
It was a time of great peril when the Sultan decided not to join the proposed Federation. Singapore went ahead and joined the Federation. Sultan Omar Ali was under great pressure from the British who had hinted that they would be leaving the region soon. But he stood firm.
He put his position as Sultan and the fate of his people on the line. His judgment was that the British would be responsible enough to give him some time to get his country in better shape before British forces left.

The late Sultan was a modest man. He was soft-spoken, with a frequent smile when speaking to his friends. He lived a simple and frugal life.
On May 1961, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the Malayan Prime Minister, at an address to the Foreign Correspondents Association in Singapore, mooted the formation of Malaysia, to include Brunei, Sarawak, North Borneo (subsequently to be named Sabah), Singapore and Malaya.
On 5 December 1961, Sultan Sir Omar Ali described the Malaysia proposal as very attractive. In January 1962, he appointed a Brunei-Malaysia Commission to report on the opinion of the people. On 18 July 1962, the Sultan stated that he accepted the Malaysia proposal in principal, but that did not necessarily mean it was final.
If agreement could not be reached on important conditions affecting benefits to the people and the state, Brunei would not participate in the Malaysia plan.
In August 1962, the Partai Rakyat Brunei (PRB) won a landslide election victory in four District Councils, which in turn would choose 16 members for the Legislative Council (LegCo). The PRB won 54 seats and had all the 16 members required for the LegCo.
But they could not form the government. The 17 government nominees outnumbered the PRB in the 33-member Council. Sheikh Azahari, leader of the PRB, rejected the proposal that Brunei join the proposed Malaysian Federation.
Azahari put forward three motions at the LegCo meeting, for 5 December 1962; first, to reject the proposal of a Malaysian Federation; second, to request the restoration of Brunei's sovereignty over Sarawak and North Borneo and the installation of the Sultan as constitutional monarch of the North Borneo Federation; and third, a request to the British to grant independence to Brunei not later than 1963.
The Speaker of the LegCo disallowed the motions because the issues fell within the purview of the British government under the 1959 British-Brunei Agreement. Sheikh Azahari, the PRB leader then decided to resort to a military solution and staged a rebellion led by its military wing, Tentera Nasional Kalimantan Utara (TNKU).
The revolt began on December 8. It was put down in short order by British forces flown in from Singapore. On 20 December, Sultan Omar Ali declared a State of Emergency, suspended the Constitution, dissolved the LegCo, and appointed a 14-member Emergency Council comprising four ex-officio members, including the British High Commissioner, Sir Denis White, and 10 members nominated by the Sultan.
Negotiations on Malaysia were resumed in earnest following the end of the rebellion. The sultan did not accept the terms that Malaya offered him. When the Malaysia Agreement was signed on 9 July 1963 in London, Singapore, North Borneo and Sarawak signed on. Brunei did not. He was very firm in his decision not to join. As a result, after Malaysia was formed on 16 September 1963, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, recalled hundreds of Malaysian teachers and government officers seconded to serve the Brunei administration. Their departure caused a temporary dislocation in Brunei.
Several accounts were given to explain the reason for Brunei's decision not to join the Malaysian Federation. One account cited disagreement over oil revenues as the primary cause. Kuala Lumpur wanted Brunei to hand over control of its oil to the federal government after 10 years. Kuala Lumpur also wanted to immediately tax any new oil and mineral finds discovered after Brunei joined Malaysia and to make the Sultan's contribution of $40 million to the federal revenues compulsory rather than voluntary. The Sultan was said to have found these terms unacceptable.
Another account from Kuala Lumpur alluded to the Sultan's unhappiness over the issue of royal precedence. Sir Omar was neither willing to compromise Brunei's control over its oil revenues nor ready to have his privileges as the Ruler of Brunei curtailed. More to the point, the vibes that Sultan Omar Ali felt during the negotiations were that he would become subordinate to Kuala Lumpur's leaders and he would rank behind Malaysian's nine Sultans in seniority, besides giving up a chunk of this oil wealth to KL. He met Lee Kuan Yuan soon after Singapore was asked to leave Malaysia in August 1965, he nodded with satisfaction that his decision not to join was wiser than Singapore's acceptance of Malaysia.
Just over two months after Malaysia was formed, on 1 December 1963, the British Colonial Office cut its long-term connection with Brunei. The British High Commissioner in Brunei, no longer called the British Resident, henceforth would deal with Secretary of State for Commonwealth.
When the Labour Government took office in 1964, it became clear that sooner or later they would withdraw their forces from east of Suez. This would jeopardise Brunei's secure position as a protectorate. British advisers pressed the Sultan to hasten the implementation of constitutional reforms so that there could be a democratic government in place. In March 1965, a second general election was held for District and Legislative Councillors. 36 candidates contested for 10 LegCo seats in the 21-member LegCo that would comprise six ex-officio members and five members nominated by the Sultan. 88 candidates fought for seats in four Districts Councils. A large number of candidates contesting under political parties were defeated by independents because the political parties were weak.
On 4 October 1967, Sultan Omar Ali, then aged only 53, abdicated in favour of his 21-year-old son, Hassanal Bolkiah, born on July 1946. It was a strategic move he made to buy time before a British withdrawal. Protracted negotiations with the British on Brunei's future continued following the abdication. The Sultan, now the Seri Begawan, dragged out the discussions. He wanted the son to get familiar with the administration. Moreover, his son was only 21 years old. He deflected pressure to adopt the British adversarial Parliamentary system.
He argued with the British that he needed a few years for the young Sultan to learn the ropes and strengthen the domestic situation ahead of any constitutional changes. He bought time from 1963 to 1983, over 20 years, when the British finally withdrew, and Brunei became an independent state. Without the skilful and determined stand taken by Sultan Omar Ali in the full knowledge that he was risking the future of his Sultanate if the British were to leave precipitately, he saved his dynasty, delayed majority rule before Brunei was ready, and secured Brunei's continued defence by an agreement to pay for one British Gurkha battalion that would stay in Brunei but under British control. A discreet presence remained.
The Seri Begawan has preserved Brunei's oil wealth. He left the bulk of his country's reserves with the Crown Agents to manage. He was fortunate that Britain acted with responsibility. Most of all, the Seri Begawan played his hand with considerable skill. He pleaded for time to educate enough local Bruneians who could manage the administration of the country.

Less than three years after independence, on 7 September, 1986, he passed away. He was deeply mourned by the people of Brunei. They knew that he had saved their independence and are able to live as they wish, keeping their oil wealth. It was Sir Omar's statecraft. He built the infrastructure of state. By the 1980s, he had given the sultanate's 200,000 people a high per capita income of US$20,000, among the world's most privileged. He strengthened Brunei's Islamic institutions.
Sultan Omar Ali took calculated risks with courage. He has a keen sense of what was politically possible. During the 17 years from 1950 to 1967, he brought economic, social and political developments to Brunei. With two Five-Year Development Plans, he provided for an education system throughout the state.
He built schools to teach English, gave scholarships to promising young students to study in overseas institutions. He provided school children with at least one free meal a day. Religious schools were given high priority. Hospitals, clinics were set up and dental services to schools were provided.
He eradicated dysentery and malaria. He provided electricity for the whole state. He developed the roads and telecommunication system. He reclaimed swamp lands and resettled people.
He set up the Royal Brunei Malay Regiment in 1961, which evolved into the Royal Brunei Armed Forces. The Currency Board was established in 1967. Sultan Omar Ali has ensured the survival of an independent Malay Muslim monarchy at the end of the 20th century.
He has built a strong foundation before passing the mantle to his eldest son. His Majesty Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah has guided Brunei since independence in 1984, a 25-year period, during which Brunei has progressed in material and social terms.
The old Sultan would have been happy to know that an independent Sultanate in Brunei has progressed in the quarter century after independence. His son, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, has preserved his heritage. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah has continued to expand the numbers of abler Bruneians who are educated abroad, and created a thicker layer of the higher educated and well-informed elite.

In December 1964, a year after Malaysia was formed, the Malaysian government decided to terminate the Board of Commissioners of Currency and to issue a new currency for Malaya, Singapore and the Borneo territories, including Brunei.
The Malaya-British Borneo Currency Agreement was terminated two years later. The Malaysian government in Kuala Lumpur declined Brunei's request that it be given a seat on the policy-making body. Also, Malaysia opposed Brunei's request that the portrait of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia should not appear on the new notes. Hence, Brunei enacted legislation in January 1967 to form its own Currency Board.
During one of the Sultan Haji Omar Ali visits to Singapore after independence, he had smiled broadly and, with his eyes twinkling and his moustache twitching, saying to Lee Kuan Yew, "You are now like Brunei. It is better for you."

If Brunei joined the Federation of Malaysia, the state of Brunei would be poorer, much much poorer! And we the West Malaysians would be much much happier to have another obedient and stupid natural resources supplier, at cheapest cost! sigh, we failed to con them into our "Malaysia Plot" and now better known as "1Malaysia Plot"...
------------------------------------------------------
Please stay-tuned for Part (2): Singapore

Bingo, Daulat Tuanku!

I wrote about the importance of 2-party system to "empower" the system of Monarchy in Malaysia. With Pakatan Rakyat emerging as a strong alternative to be reckoned with, Umno-led BN will do anything and everything to soothe, pacify, appease and please all the Rulers in the various States of Malaysia (if Pakatan Rakyat happens to form the next Federal Government, they will do likewise)!!
GONE were the days when Umno "instructed" Raja-Raja to behave themselves...
Tuanku, you may want to thank Pakatan Rakyat for the special surprised gifts from Umno! No worries, Pakatan Rakyat will present you with better gifts if they form the next Government of Malaysia.
--------------------------------------
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Why the Pakatan Rakyat government was brought down in Perak
Raja Petra Kamarudin
We all know what happened in Perak. What many do not know is why it happened.
If you can remember, it took one week for the Perak and Selangor state governments to get sworn in after the March 2008 general election. The Sultans of these two states wanted to first ‘discuss the matter’ with the Pakatan Rakyat State Assemblypersons. The Sultans then set certain terms and conditions before agreeing to swear in the new Pakatan Rakyat state governments.
This gap of one week allowed the old Barisan Nasional state governments time to remove and destroy quite a lot of very damaging evidence of the wrongdoings of the previous governments.
The one-week delay also allowed Barisan Nasional to negotiate the possibility of PAS teaming up with Umno to form the state governments in Perak and Selangor. Umno even agreed that PAS would become the Menteris Besar of these two states. And, to add icing to the cake, Umno even agreed to allow PAS to implement Islamic laws in these two states.
But PAS stayed loyal to their two other partners in Pakatan Rakyat, PKR and DAP, and they declined Umno’s offer. Finally, the two Sultans had no choice but to swear in the Pakatan Rakyat state governments in Perak and Selangor. But this did not stop them from plotting behind the scenes on how to bring down the governments.
The Sultan of Selangor was quite prepared to consider the whole matter a fait accompli. After all, Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor had a clear majority and it would be quite difficult to buy off so many State Assemblypersons. But Perak was another matter altogether. Pakatan Rakyat’s majority in Perak was thinner than in Selangor.
As soon as the new state government had been put in place, the Sultan of Perak began asking for this, that and the other. The Pakatan Rakyat Perak state government would have been quite prepared to tolerate some of the demands of the Perak Palace for the sake of maintaining a good relationship with the Palace. But what the Sultan and his family wanted was just too excessive and the Pakatan Rakyat Perak state government had no choice but to say no to the Sultan’s demands.
And this, of course, upset the Sultan. So, when Pakatan Rakyat lost its majority in the Perak State Assembly, it did not take too much persuading for the Sultan to agree to swear in a new Barisan Nasional state government.
At first, the Sultan was not too sure whether he should kick out the Pakatan Rakyat state government in favour of a Barisan Nasional government. When the Pakatan Rakyat Menteri Besar, Nizar Jamaluddin, went before the Sultan to request that the State Assembly be dissolved to make way for fresh state elections, the Sultan said he would think about it first. But immediately after that the Prime Minister, Najib Tun Razak, went to meet the Sultan and the Sultan was persuaded to reject the Pakatan Rakyat request to dissolve the State Assembly and instead he swore in Barisan Nasional as the new state government.
Najib’s ‘persuasion’ was simple. Nazrin, his son, should not be the Raja Muda of Perak. And this means he should also not be the next Sultan. And in the event that the Sultan dies, as surely he will one day, the federal government will not support Nazrin as the next Sultan of Perak. See what happened to Negeri Sembilan. Although the Yamtuan appointed his son as the regent, this does not mean he becomes the next Yamtuan.
So, Nazrin’s succession to the Perak throne depends on the goodwill of the federal government. But only if the state government is a Barisan Nasional government will there be this goodwill. If Pakatan Rakyat remains the state government, then expect Nazrin to pay the price when his time comes to succeed his father.
Furthermore, the Sultan and his family has asked for a lot of things from the Pakatan Rakyat state government, all of which they rejected. Umno will ensure that the Sultan and his family get whatever they want if Barisan Nasional takes over as the Perak state government.
And with that Pakatan Rakyat’s fate was sealed. The Sultan swore in Barisan Nasional as the new Perak state government and Pakatan Rakyat was sent into the opposition aisle.
What was it that the Sultan and his family wanted which Pakatan Rakyat said no to and which Barisan Nasional has now said yes? Yes, let us see how in just a few months the Sultan and his family has suddenly become one of the richest royal families in Malaysia, of course, at the expense of Pakatan Rakyat.
1. Umno gave the Sultan a piece of state land known as lot 183578. The land is approximately 600 acres in size and is at Tanjong Tualang in the district of Kinta. This land has been parked under the name of the Sultan’s proxy, Mohamed Khaair Johari Hj Osman.
2. Umno gave the Sultan a 1,000-acre timber concession along the 11km Gerik-Kupang highway in Ulu Kenderong, Gerik, Hulu Perak. This concession was originally given to Universiti Utara Malaysia. However, it was later revoked and given to Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak whose Chairman is Raja Datuk Seri Ashman Shah Ibni Sultan Azlan Shah.
3. Umno gave the Sultan seven timber concessions at compartments 39, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 and 49 in the Kenderong Forest Reserve in Hulu Perak. The seven lots, which come to approximately 600 acres, were parked under two proxy companies of the Sultan -- Syarikat Zotonjaya Sdn Bhd and Kibaran Wang Sdn Bhd.
4. Umno is about to approve a proposal for reforestation involving 10,781 hectares. 5,781 hectares is at the Gunung Besout Forest Reserve in Southern Perak while 5,000 hectares is at Pondok Tanjung in the Larut Matang district. The company that will get this huge project is Permatang Utama Sdn Bhd (company registration number 513583-D) whose Executive Chairman is Datuk Seri Ismail Farouk Abdullah, the Sultan’s son-in-law.
5. Further to that, Datuk Seri Ismail Farouk Abdullah was allowed to take over the state-owned Casuarina Hotel in Ipoh for a negotiated cut throat price of only RM43 million whereas it can fetch a far higher price on the open market. The hotel is located in one of the most prime land in Ipoh and just the empty land alone is worth a huge amount of money.
It is not that the Perak Royal Family is destitute. It is more like they are greedy. Raja Datuk Seri Eleena Azlan Shah is a Director of GAMUDA BERHAD and is Malaysia's 25th richest person with assets worth over RM 773 million. This makes her the second richest woman in Malaysia after Puan Sri Chong Chook Yew, who occupies the number 18 slot with more than RM 1 billion in assets.
Gamuda Berhad has been awarded more than RM10 billion worth of contracts. It also operates and maintains 230 kilometres of highways plus is a major township and property developer with four township projects involving more than 30,000 houses.
So there you have it. Perakians, in particular the Malays, think that the opposition is not showing the Sultan of Perak the respect he deserves. What they do not know is the Sultan does not deserve any respect. And many are also not aware why the Sultan wanted Pakatan Rakyat kicked out of Perak.
Now, we hope, they do.

Tuanku, without Pakatan Rakyat UMNO will become Absolute Sultan of Malaysia...

KUALA KRAU, Sept 24 – The Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah, has called on the people to continue supporting the government so that more social, economic and educational developments would be implemented for them.
He said the people should stick with the Barisan Nasional (BN) government as the development agenda lined-up for the short and long term would bring them continuous benefits.
The construction of the RM64 million Kuala Krau bridge across the Pahang river was just one example of the sustainable developments that would benefit the people living along the riverbanks, he said.
“The Kuala Krau bridge will help reduce the time spent for making the 55km trip between Bandar Tun Razak in Jengka and Kuala Krau, to just 20 minutes from one hour previously.
“Besides, the bridge will also act as catalyst for economic development in Bandar Tun Razak, Jerantut and Temerloh. It will also benefit 60,000 people in Jerantut, Temerloh and Maran by reducing the trip to just 22km,” he told reporters after visiting the construction site here today.
Also present were Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, Kuala Krau Member of Parliament Datuk Ismail Mohamad Said and Jenderak assemblyman Datuk Mohamad Jaafar.
The Sultan also called on the Public Works Department (JKR) to ensure that a motorcycle lane be built on the bridge to ensure the safety of motorcyclists.
Earlier, state JKR director Datuk Rosman Yahaya said the construction of the bridge, which began in August 2007, was expected to be completed by next February.
He said it was 82 per cent completed, adding that the four-lane bridge, with its attractive design, would also be the new landmark for the Kuala Krau constituency. – Bernama

Dearest Tuanku:
Patik is writing to you to inform you that the emergence of Pakatan Rakyat is to the benefits of Malaysia's constitutional Monarchy.
If my memory serves me right, since early 80s Umno has come into conflict with Sultans and Palaces of various States, and patik believe that Tuanku has full knowledge of where the conflicts originated from -- it is none of than the "Conflict of Interests and Power".
If Tuanku is to promote and support UMNO to have absolute power, then patik can guarantee that UMNO will launch another round of constitutional amendment to reduce the power of Monarchy so they can rule this country with blatant disregard to the rule of law.
Rakyat are looking up to the Monarchy as a pillar to safeguard the rights of the Rakyat (be it Muslims or Non-Muslims) and be the head and protector of Islamic faith.
Tuanku may forget that how you and your Royal brothers in Malaysia were embarassed and humiliated by UMNO in the press and TV controlled by UMNO and it was Tengku Razaleigh who went against all odds to defend the dignity of Monarchy in parliament. However, the opposition led by Tengku Razaleigh in the 90s was too weak to defend the Monarchy. The good news is we have Pakatan Rakyat today, Tuanku, don't you understand the tactic of "divide and rule"? Isn't it true that the Sultans of Selangor, Perak, Perlis and Terrenganu can talk "louder" to UMNO today? And your Royal brothers of Perak, Trenganu and Perlis can now have their choice of Menteri Besars, which could never happen before March 2008 and without Pakatan Rakyat UMNO can easily cultivate absolute power and eventually overshadow the Monarchy. Both UMNO and Pakatan Rakyat are desperately after you and your Royal brothers today, UMNO won't "hentam" royal palace anymore in newspaper or TV as they did in the 80s and 90s, instead, they will "grant" Tuanku more logging concessions to win your support and endorsement, UMNO warlords will have to think twice when they come into conflict of interests with palace, because this triangle love has unexpectedly empowered Tuanku and your Royal brothers to really "rule" the state.
Tuanku, the late Sultan of Selangor knew his Menteri Besar was involved in corruption and His Majesty even threw a copy of cheque in front of Tun Dr. Mahathir and asked why a Menteri Besar of His state could amass unexplained wealth of such a huge amount, His Majesty wanted Tun Dr. Mahathir to do something about it and as we know Tun Dr. Mahathir did not do anything about it --isn't it an act of treason "derhaka"!!...Tuanku, weren't you be informed of this incident?
Tuanku, the relevancy of Monarchy lies with how much the Sultans care for His subjects and protect the Rakyat against the brutal rule of corrupt regime. Tuanku, you may not have experienced or suffered from poverty before, but patik can tell you that there are many of your subjects who are still earning as little as RM500 per month and due to poor management of resources and corruption, many of your subjects still fail to progress as they ought to. Those states without Sultans like Sabah, Sarawak, Penang, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur, UMNO MEN are behaving like Sultan and Tuanku, may patik inform you that certain UMNO warlords in Sabah could even be richer than you, and the sons of Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Abdullah Badawi are much much much more richer than your Tengku Mahkota.
Tuanku, patik believe that you are a great Sultan who really cares for the wellbeing of your subjects...what UMNO told us about your extravagant spending overseas are all nonsense and rubbish to me. Patik wishes your good health and longevity!
Hidup Tuanku, Hidup Rakyat!

SETIAP RAKYAT PAHANG TANGGUNG RM$3370 HUTANG?
Oleh Zukri Aksah
KUANTAN, 3 September – Akibat dari jumlah hutang kerajaan negeri Pahang yang begitu besar, setiap rakyat Pahang, sama ada tua, muda, besar, kecil atau masih di dalam buaian sudah terpaksa menanggung hutang sebanyak RM3,370 seorang.
Inilah yang berlaku di Pahang ekoran saman terhadap kerajaan dan juga hutang yang terpaksa ditanggung oleh kerajaan negeri.
The Malaysian Insider sebelum ini telah melaporkan perihal tindakan dua buah syarikat, Spag’n Plantation Sdn Bhd dan Upayapadu (M) Sdn Bhd, yang menyaman Kerajaan Negeri Pahang, Unit Perancang Ekonomi Negeri Pahang dan Jabatan Perhutanan Negeri Pahang kerana ingkar janji dengan saman masing-masing berjumlah RM209 juta dan RM24 juta.
Sebelum laporan tersebut, Kerajaan Negeri Pahang juga telah diheret ke mahkamah oleh Seruan Gemilang Makmur Sdn Bhd (SGM) kerana tuntutan hutang penghakiman berjumlah RM63 juta. SGM diberitakan telah mendapat perintah mandamus bagi memaksa Menteri Besar Pahang melunaskan bayaran ini.
Tuntutan hutang juga memaksa anak syarikat Kerajaan Negeri Pahang, Astana Golf & Country Club disita kerana kegagalan membayar tunggakan pinjaman berjumlah RM40 juta.
Terbaru, seperti didedahkan oleh Ahli Parlimen Indera Mahkota dari PKR, Azan Ismail, SGM sekali lagi telah mengemukakan saman kepada Kerajaan Negeri Pahang, kali ini saman ingkar janji yang berjumlah lebih RM100 juta.
Sebuah lagi syarikat, Asia Chart Sdn Bhd pula telah membuat dua saman berasingan terhadap Kerajaan Negeri Pahang dengan nilai hampir RM200 juta. Kedua-dua saman ini, menurut Azan telah difailkan di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuantan kira-kira dua minggu yang lalu.
Dalam pendedahannya, Azan menaksirkan bahawa jumlah keseluruhan saman yang diterima oleh Kerajaan Negeri Pahang pimpinan Umno dan BN, termasuk tuntutan dari pelbagai pihak ketika Pahang masih di bawah teraju Tun Khalil Yaakob, adalah dalam lingkungan RM5 bilion.
Bagi Azan, ini melambangkan sikap Kerajaan Negeri Pahang pimpinan Umno dan BN yang tidak bertanggungjawab serta memperjudikan masa depan negeri dan rakyatnya.
Azan tidak menjumpai alasan lain mengapa berlakunya sebegitu banyak tuntutan hutang terhadap Kerajaan Negeri Pahang, selain kerana masalah rasuah, kronisme, penyelewengan dana dan salahurus hasil negeri, sepanjang Pahang dikuasai oleh Umno dan BN.
Sementara kalangan pemimpin Umno dan BN mengumpul kekayaan dan mengagih laba dari kontrak demi kontrak yang diagih sesama sendiri, hak dan nasib rakyat Negeri Pahang diketepikan, keluh Azan.
Bila negeri mula menghadapi masalah, yang menjadi mangsa adalah rakyat, rakyatlah yang akan menanggung bebannya melalui kenaikan cukai tanah, cukai pintu dan sebagainya.

bodoh cina + cina bodoh!!!

Dato Dr. Tan Tiong Hong’s reply on additional Empat Ekor draw most ‘unsatisfactory’
Press Statement by Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Kota Melaka, Lim Kit Siang, in Petaling Jaya on Tuesday, l6.7.l985:
---------------------------------------------------------------

Tan Tiong Hong’s reply on additional Empat Ekor draw most ‘unsatisfactory’
The reply by the Deputy Finance Minister, Datuk Dr. Tan Tiong Hong, in Parliament to questions as to why the government approved an additional weekly draw on Thursday for Magnum Corporation’s Empat Nombar Ekor from twice to thrice weekly is most unsatisfactory.
It was most unfortunate that my DAP comrades and I were not given the opportunity to put supplementary questions to Datuk Dr. Tan to expose the hollowness of his reasons.
Datuk Dr. Tan told Parliament that the additional weekly Thursday draw was to reduce orcheck the illegal Empat Ekor syndicates. This is utter rubbish, for what the governmenthas done is the opposite, in encouraging the increase in activities of illegal Empat Ekorsyndicates from twice a week to three times a week. The other reason give by Datuk Dr. Tanthat the increase was to give the people more opportunities to have the chance to buy Empat Ekorto ‘strike’ the numbers they want is even more ridiculous, for by this reasoning, there should beEmpat Ekor draw every day, or even better, twice a day to give the people more chance to‘pursue’ the number they want. Datuk Dr. Tan and the Barisan Nasional government hadcompletely ignored the fact that at a period of great economic hardship, when moneyis tight, the additional Empat Ekor draw a week would have the adverse effect of wiping outthe hard-earned money of the people. No wonder shopkeepers and businessmen are finding times unbearably hard. The only beneficiary is Magnum Corporation, and its parent company, theMulti-Purpose Holdings whose share price yesterday was the all-time low of 84% cents when it wasone time boosted as worth $9 or $10 a share! Is this the MPH’s secret weapon to try to jack up its price?
Datuk Dr. Tan should tell Malaysians how much revenue the Government expects to get from the additional Empat Ekor draw a week, and what is the expected additional profits toMagnum Corporation and Multi-Purpose Holdings from such additional draw. Has the Malaysian economy become so bad that the government must encourage the people to gamble in order toget more revenue?
All the monies gained by the government and Magnum Corporation and Multi-Purpose Corporationwill be at the expense and hardship of the people, and clearly is not only against the national interest,but directly against the whole spirit of the government’s Islamisation programme to instil moral valuesin our society.
The MCA is becoming the gamblers’ party, whose leaders are not only gambling away thepeople’s rights and interest, but want the people to gamble away their money as well.It is significant that both Neo Yee Pan and Tan Koon Swan MCA factions have not dared totake a public stand to call on government to cancel the additional Thursday draw for Empat Ekor,which shows that both factions are no different when it comes to the peoples basic issues!
Labuan as a bunkering station for US naval vessels and as possible replacement for US base at Subic Bay in Phlippines?
I wish to clarify some newspaper reports that the Deputy Defence Minister, Datuk Abang Abu Bakar had, in his reply to my supplementary question, denied that Labuan would become a bunkering stationfor US vessels and possible replacement for Subic Bay in Phillipines for US navy in future.
I had asked whether the proposed submarine-building programme of Sabah Shipyard Sdn Bhdhad any connection with the proposal to convert Pulau Kraman in Labuan as a bunkering stationfor US Navy, and as a possible replacement for the US Naval base in Subic Bay in the Philippinesshould the US had to withdraw from the Philippines. All that Datuk Abang Abu Bakar said was ‘the question does not arise’ – which could mean either there is truth or no truth in the connection.The Defence Ministry should come out with a clear-cut statement on this question!

------------------------------------
Dato Dr. Tan is my personal friend, we met quite often in Singapore to discuss business deals few years ago and we did travel to China to explore business opportunities. I like being with this former MCA MP cum deputy Minister for his gentlemanliness, humility and mildness; his great ideas always inspire me. To me, Dato Dr. Tan is truly a scholar, thinker, successful businessman and a man of integrity! Anyway, this article has nothing to do with Dato Dr. Tan.
I read the above press release by Mr. Lim Kit Siang in 1985 a week ago, I can't help but feel prompted to write something about the gambling issues in Malaysia.
1. I challenged UMNO to uphold Islamic teachings to completely ban gambling in Malaysia, I even wrote to Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to clamp down on ALL gambling activities in Malaysia.
2. I wrote an open letter to DAP last year to urge DAP to support the closure of casino, 4-D, ToTo, horse-racing operations in Malaysia as I suspect them of being Umno's "lackey" to legally suck non-Muslims as well as some bodoh Muslims hard-earned money in our country.
3. I explained how these gambling monies have been used by Umno/BN to manipulate the rakyat.
4. I further explained that the support for gambling by non-Muslim political parties like MCA, DAP, Gerakan are perceived as anti-Islam by many Malays (though many Malays like to buy 4-D and ToTo!)
5. When Umno has to explain to Malays about the legalization of gambling in Malaysia, they accuse Chinese of being inveterate gamblers -"Chinese addiction for gambling is beyond redemption, if they don't gamble, they will DIE, so we Umno has to respect human rights and give in to this unreasonable/unIslamic demand. And Chinese are so happy to gratefully and graciously accept this "compliment"; for too long MCA and Chinese of unsound mind have been hysterically barking at PAS: GIVE ME GAMBLING OR GIVE ME DEATH...
6. Chinese can bow down before Umno and beg them: Please prostitute my wife and daughters, enslave my sons, I am willing to pawn my children education and healthcare, but please please don't close casino, 4-D, ToTo, Horse-Racing for they are my hope, my joy and my future...
7. The Chinese bow down before Umno and say:"please please don't close casino, 4-D, ToTo and Horse-Racing for we will wholeheartedly make sure that PAS won't disturb you (at least politically)".
8. So it is not uncommon to hear from Chinese prostitutes in KL that: "my parents are addicted to gambling and accumulate huge gambling debts so I have prostitute myself to help family alleviate the financial woes"... and it's true sometimes!
9. And if you ask the young Chinese boys who drop-out of school and sell pirated DVD in JB why they want to sell pirated DVDs, they may tell you: "my father is addicted to gambling so I have leave school to fend for myself"!
10. Both the prostitutes and pirated DVD sellers could also be addicted to gambling...
11. Umno appoints "Chinese gambling operators" to use the Chinese to betray the Chinese, and Chinese Malaysians are so proud of Mr. Vivi Tan and Lim Kok Kok (not their real names) for they think these 2 persons are the proud of Chinese community in Malaysia.
12. Umno controls the gambling business behind the curtains, collects the taxes and uses the monies to suppress, opprress and depress Malaysians! It is without doubt that those Chinese who frequent the legal gambling den end up being depressed financially and politically...
13. This bodoh cina political party called Bodoh MCA (BMCA) has the audacity for telling bodoh cina that: "Bodoh MCA will fight till the last drop of its blood to defend the "gambling right" of Chinese in Malaysia", some bodoh Chinese become extremely grateful and even tearful for MCA great sacrifice ...
14. For Chinese are so fearful of "meaningless life without gambling" in Malaysia, Umno-controlled government successfully takes advantage of this phobia and manipulates the Chinese electorate.
15. Chinese Malaysians are said to gamble away approximately RM6-8 billion in a year (imagine how many hospitals and world-class universities can be built with these money)!!
16. Bodoh cina accuses me of "anti-cina" when I propose the closure of Casino, ToTo, 4-D and Horse-Racing and they ask me a lagi bodoh question: "What happen if they go underground"...
17. Umno operates "legal gambling" activities, 2 other organizations known as PDRJ and BMR jointly operate underground 4-D, horse-racing and football "games"...they even have a mobile bank called Bank Ah-Long to grow their business exponentially!
18. Back to point 16, "if bodoh cina are not crazy about gambling, how can they go underground, open-ground, or above-ground"???
19. Back to point 16, I wrote to our former PM Tun Abduallah Ahamad Badawi who is a pious and faithful Muslim to propose to him about using "Lucky Draw" to replace "gambling"...
20. There will be 3 proposed types of "Lucky Draws" to replace "gambling" in Malaysia:
a). Education Lucky Draw:
This Lucky Draw Ticket is RM2 and we will conduct it 3 times a week, winners will get RM2 million to RM1 thousand worth of "Education Prize" and these prizes are transferrable and can only used for education fees payment, all the profits generated from "Education Lucky Draw" will fully be used to assist poor and needy students regardless of race and religion. I asked our former PM to arrange a meeting with Minister of Education to discuss it, however, there was no reply.
b). Healthcare and Family Lucky Draw:
Similar to "Education Lucky Draw", but I was not able to secure a meeting with PM and Health Minister to submit my proposal. (In my letter, I made a promise to former PM that if we were to implement Healthcare & Family Lucky Draw in Malaysia, poor and needy Malaysians won't be deprived of basic shelter and world-class healthcare services).
c). Infrastructure Lucky Draw:
Winners get free highway access cards (RM10,000 -RM50). All the proceeds will be channeled for building infrastructures in Malaysia. Highway toll will be gradually reduced and eventually owned by rakyat...free access is NOT a dream!
21. Those who can arrange a meeting for me with Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak or Nik Aziz, please let me know and I will let them read my proposal...
22. I can guarantee that if our government adopts my proposal, we can curb gambling more effectively, and the more Malaysians who support "Lucky Draw" the more prosperous our country is going to be and the less social issues we are going to have...
Anyway, we have too many bodoh cina+ cina bodoh among us... the existing policy on gambling won't be changed because of bodoh cina!!!
please stay-tuned for bodoh indian+ indian bodoh next week...

UMNO wants Malays to hate Singapore...

Last year when I wrote an article which mentioned about the Malays living in abject povertly and sordid condition in Batam, Bintan and Karimun, Indonesian islands which are less 60 nautical miles from Singapore--a country which UMNO hates so much ostensibly for the alleged marginalization of Malays in Singapore. I urge UMNO to look at the more serious problems faced by Malays in Indonesia like child prostitution, child labor, deprivation of food and shelter, the lack of basic education opportunities for deserving Indonesian children, etc. I also invited UMNO to study the root cause of the problems faced by Malays in Indonesia instead of hysterically barking like a dog at Singapore for allegedly marginalizing its Malay citizens.
I am going to tell UMNO that there is no need for them to worry about the Malays in Singapore for the following reasons:

1. Education Opportunities: Malays don't have to pay school fees in Singapore, Chinese and Indians have to, no quota imposed on Malays for “excelling” in their studies. If Umno is still not happy, they can always set up mediocre universities to accommodate them, thus, making Singapore government speechless!! Let’s set a general test in English, Science and Mathematics to find out whether Singaporean Malays can outperform Indonesian Malays, Malaysian Malays, Brunei Malays…Let’s make a wager!
The competition for citing Quran is surely won by Indonesian Malays…

2. Employment Opportunities in Government Sector: If candidates of same qualities in education, experience, ect, priorities will be given to minorities. (Since Umno is so crazy about the Malays’ well-being in Singapore, I can appoint a research team to prove that the number of Malays in Singapore government sector is in higher proportion -- (Malays constitute 8% of Singapore total population, but they constitute about 28% in government sector- meaning out of 100 civil servants, 28 are Malays!! Mahathir should inspect Singapore Police Force, Civil Defence, Checkpoints and Immigration Authority and see for himself how Malays are being hired there).

3. Employment Opportunities in private sector: Yes, there could be discrimination in private sectors because the requirement to use Chinese language when dealing with China and due to other reasons they’re more hesitant to hire Malays as good Malays candidates are already taken by government sector.
Solutions: Umno-controlled companies in Singapore like CIMB, Maybank, Sime-Darby, etc, can apply a straightforward approach of “blindly hire” all Malays so as to fulfil the Mahathir’s “Saving Malays in Singapore Mission”.
4. Religion: Singapore has ample number of Mosques for Muslims, however, they can’t fix their Mosques’ speaker outward and turn the volume up to the max; probably the Malays in Singapore have no hearing problem. One issue that concerns me is that the Spore government doesn’t allow government schools (primary and secondary) Muslim students to wear tudung, this is undemocratic! And Karpal Singh of Malaysia’s DAP has long lambasted it as ridiculous and was willing to assist a Singapore Muslim to challenge the tudung-ban at Singapore court. Umno should condemn Singapore for not allowing Muslim students to wear tudung in primary and secondary schools, Umno should also condemn Turkey for not allowing Muslims to wear tudung in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions!! Tertiary institutions in Singapore don’t have such ban….
5. Home ownership: 98% of Malay families in Singapore own a government housing unit. (while many Malays in Indonesia and Malaysia are still homeless)!!

I even emailed Dr. Mahathir and challenged him for a debate on "The alleged marginalization of Malays in Singapore in comparison with the destiny of Malays in the failed state of Indonesia", but Dr. Mahathir was too powerful to respond to a small fly like me…
Umno is likening the fate of Malays in Penang to the “miserable” state of Malays in Singapore and Mahathir accused Singapore or more specifically Lee Kuan Yew of being Anti-Malay, Umno and Mahathir want Singapore to give its Malay citizens the following special privileges like:
a). APs (Approved Permits): all the cars imported to Singapore must be through Malay-controlled companies so they can get rich more quickly;
b).Contracts: all projects in Singapore must be handled by Malay-controlled companies so they can inflate the construction cost and become overnight miilionaire, no legal action can be taken against them if they fail to deliver because they have special privileges;
c). University Quotas: if a Malay fails to enter a university, BY HOOK OR BY CROOK HE/SHE MUST BE ADMITTED TO A UNIVERSITY AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER MUCH MORE DESERVING STUDENTS AND HE/SHE MUST BE MADE A UNIVERSITY GRADUATE (IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO PROMISE HIS ENTRY INTO UNIVERSITY AND GUARANTEE HIS/SHE SUCCESSFUL GRADUATION, FAILURE TO CHURNING OUT THE PRE-FIXED NUMBER OF MALAY UNIVERSITY GRADUATES IS CONSIDERED AS ANTI-MALAY, THEREFORE, LEE KUAN YEW IS VERY ANTI-MALAY);
d). Government Posts: Malays must be made Prime Minister and fill up all the ministerial posts in Singapore government cabinet even if he/she doesn’t have the qualities to manage a city-state where there is ZERO resources!
As mentioned in Point d, Singapore doesn’t have natural resources and therefore the government doesn’t have the luxury of wastage of public fund either; good governance and corruption-free are the 2 main elements for Singapore success. Imagine again running Singapore the “Umno way” and install the policy of “Malay-First, Country Last”, in no time, all the Singaporeans (including Malays) would have to prostitute themselves to feed their families like many pretty Batam girls do (apart from selling their body, I don’t know what else Singapore can offer to sell – u find any resources there??)… the only resource Singapore has is human resource=human capital, using your brains to generate wealth. Umno doesn’t believe in using brains, because UMNO=Ur Mind Not Okay. Understand?!
Thanks God! Malaysia is endowed with abundant natural resources, ideal number of populations and a group of hard working Chinese entrepreneurs to sustain the economy, if not, our girls would long have been maids and prostitutes like our Indonesia counterparts.
Ur Mind Not Okay…
