RapidKL Full Integration LRT Ticketing - An Unpleasant Experience of the Beautiful Kind

I normally use the overhead bridge from the CIMB bank opposite SOGO, which leads to the Ampang Line Bandaraya station, to get to the Bank Negara KTM Komuter station and had noticed a booth actively promoting MyRapid Cards.

Thinking nothing much about it as I do not use the either the Ampang or Kelana LRT lines regularly, you could say that I did not take any interest to find out more about what was being promoted and why.

I do use the Kelana line LRT from time to time, from the Wisma Jamek station to Bangsar where my younger sister stays but not too often as to require a season pass.

Today was one of those days.

As a routine to do my monthly banking chores, needing to cash out and bank in, using three banks, Bangsar was convenient as two banks were nearby my sisters place after I had checked my other bank balance at the Wisma Jamek or Bangsar LRT station.

Getting to the point, as said today was one of those days but unfortunately the ATM kiosk at Wisma Jamek was not accessible until I had purchased a ticket because it was now fenced in after the turnstile entrance.

It was about 7.15pm and the Mrs had called me earlier in the morning that she would be at my sister's house in Bangsar.

So no problem because I was going to get a ticket anyway and I proceeded to one of three new ticket dispensing machines two meters away, those that I also noticed at the Bandaraya Ampang line LRT station mentioned.

Waiting in queue and as fate would have it with no small change, only a ten ringgit bill, the electronic board on the machine at my line showed that it was for exact change only.

Glancing at the other two machines which the electronic board showed was for notes and shillings, I queued again at one of these two. In the meantime I had changed my ten ringgit note with another queue-ee for two 5 ringgit notes, just in case.

At my turn upon touching the screen, shit. At the bottom right of the screen were images of 100, 50, 10 and 5 ringgit bills marked with red "X" and 1 and 2 ringgit bills unmarked. What it meant was that the dispensing machine were only accepting 1 and 2 ringgit notes.

The person behind then said that I could get a ticket at the counter.

I was pissed by now and went over to the counter where there was another queue and directly to the counter personnel who was attending to the line of people purchasing tickets.

Knocking on the glass panel and speaking through a few small holes, I asked to see the Manager. The person at the counter just gave a cursory look at me and continued serving people. On a loud shout from me he just answered "sudah keluar" without any enquiry for my request.

You bet, I started to raise my voice. Okay, I was shouting to see the Manager. I am never one just accepting fate when fate frowns unfortunately. I will not take it sitting down or standing up.

In the midst of all this, along came a neatly dressed gentleman who politely asked me to calm down. I did not. Initially. I told the gentleman that nothing was right. That there were no signs around to guide people on an obvious new system. That even the dispensing machines were not accurately programmed. That in the front of my previous queue, an elderly lady had to get the person in front of her to assist to use the dispensing machine.

I told the gentleman that there should be some personnel at the machines to guide people.

He said that that was why he was there the past two hours to sort out issues.

This gentleman then apologised and told me that what had happened was unacceptable to him. He offered to help get my ticket. He asked my name and gave me his calling card.

I honestly had no intention to get any sort preference over others queueing.

I told the gentleman what I always tell many many others, we have everything in the world, in Malaysia. It is people that screw things up.

Saying that he understood me being upset and that he was looking into matters, he asked a Rapid staff to get me my ticket.

As it turned out it was a token, literally speaking. Like those parking tokens instead of tickets.

While waiting for the "ticket"* I looked at his calling card.

I apologised to the gentlement. I had no intention in making a big hue and cry. I said that sometiimes, in Malaysia, you need to shout to get attention.

I offered my hand with some degree of remorse.

At dinner I sent the gentleman an e-mail in thanks, praise and another apology for making such a row. He replied almost immediately saying that it was him that should apologise.

What was happening at all RapidKL stations, I found out advertently, was for this post. I guess I have not been in the loop.

RapidKL had yesterday started it's full integration of ticketing, for both the Ampang and Kelana lines which had a separate ticketing system for the last 12 years, two days ahead of schedule.

The New Straits Times reports Prasarana Group Managing Director, Dato' Shahril Mokhtar,
"I am happy to announce that response for the new AFC integrated ticketing system has been good.

"On that note, I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the commuters for their support and kind consideration.

"In this process of transition, there had been teething problems and congestion because of reduced gates as we need to keep both systems running.

"On behalf of Prasarana, I would like to offer my apologies."
Yes, there are some teething problems to overcome. I am absolutely sure it will be resolved. That, I have no doubt.

The ticket integration will be a success.

You see, when I read that polite and unassuming gentleman's business card, it was... Dato Shahril Mokhtar, Group Managing Director, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad.

Syabas Dato. We need more people like you.

You have put some faith back in me, in the future of Malaysian public transport, what with me being a regular KTM Komuter commuter.

You are the kind of people who make me proud to be Malaysian, the beautiful kind.

PS

Dato,

You are more debonair in person than your Prasarana bio pic.

1MDB - Dubious Allegations

For those who are uninitiated with 1MDB as I was, read Blogger Spanking Da Monkey's The Spanker’s Guide To 1MDB For Idiots".

The monkey was spanked yesterday "Why people repeat lies" because 1MBD is another commendable and encouraging initiative by the Govt which will positively impact the economy by way of development and foreign investments, suffice it becomes a target by the usual suspects to discredit the Govt.

1MDB had been the target of who else, the sexual controversy plagued individual, way back in April this year and in June had "Anwar reveals more 'dubious dealings' involving 1MDB".

The PAC has been tasked to look into 1DMB affairs and has an initial report that there has been no loss incurred.

Anwar had previously claimed "accounting fraud" in April and watered down to become "dubious" in June. That in itself would impress upon anyone that it is nothing more than spin.

In the middle of all the innuendos is PetroSaudi International.

Let's start from the Saudi corporation's entrance into the Malaysian scene, the Star "Saudis to come in with RM6bil investment",
By WONG CHUN WAI
newsdesk@thestar.com.my

LONDON: PetroSaudi, a global private investment company owned by the Saudi royal family, is expected to invest billions of ringgit in Malaysia.

The international oil exploration and production company has indicated interest to invest over US$2bil (RM6.2bil) in the infrastructure and energy sectors.

The company already has an RM8.7bil joint venture with 1Malaysia Development Bhd, a wholly Government-owned firm, which acts as a vehicle for Middle East investments in Malaysia.

The joint venture is expected to focus on global strategic assets in petroleum-related industries, renewable energy and power, for the benefit of lowering the cost of energy in Malaysia.

“Ultimately, the bulk of the capital and returns will be reinvested in Malaysia,” said banking sources.

The sources said PetroSaudi is also eyeing significant direct investment in Malaysia’s Islamic banking sector.

Details are not immediately available but the sources said discussions were on-going which would feature Malaysia in the roadmap of Islamic banking.

“Over the next few months, exciting developments will take place to boost Malaysia’s position, especially participation from long-term Middle-Eastern investors,” said a government source.

Cash rich PetroSaudi, founded by the Saudi royal family with Tarek Essam Ahmad Obaid leading the charge, has been snapping up value investments.

Last week, it acquired Malaysian builder UBG Bhd for RM1.5bil by raising its stake to 89.8% after its three stakeholders agreed to sell the company and its two subsidiaries.

At the same time, PetroSaudi also leased a US$2.5bil (RM7.7bil) platform to Venezuela’s state oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA as announced by Venezuela’s Energy Minister.

The platform will be used to develop offshore natural gas resources in the country, which has the most natural gas reserves in South America.

Saudi sources said Tarek, a partner of Renault F1 team, had a positive impression of Malaysia with support from the Saudi royal family, whose relationship with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is at an all-time high.

In January, Najib was awarded the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit (Ist Class) by King Abdullah Abdulaziz Al Saud, the first Asian leader to be given the honour.

The highest Saudi civilian award was also given to US President Barack Obama when he visited the country last year.

“The relationship between King Abdullah and Najib is important.

“It has been crucial in the support showed by the Saudis, initially through PetroSaudi and more substantial foreign direct investiment is expected,” the Saudi sources added.

The sources said yesterday that key members of the Saudi royal family were expected to visit Malaysia over the next three months when several major announcements would be made.

In Kuala Lumpur, analysts say the US$2bil from PetroSaudi Inter­national Ltd is expected to provide a boost to the domestic economy.

A bank-backed analyst believed that the investment from the Arab country would pave the way for more capital inflow from the Gulf.

“It (investment from PetroSaudi) will bring a positive spill-over to other sectors of the economy.

“It will provide positive reverberations for Malaysia’s real economy,” another analyst said without elaborating.

A power analyst expects the oil exploration and production company to invest in the energy sector, given the opportunity in the green energy sector and that the Government was promoting green energy.
The Edge also reported 12 January 2010 the Saudi Royal family involvement and surely with it financial clout for any investment. "PetroSaudi to raise UBG stake",
PetroSaudi is a privately held firm incorporated in the Seychelles in 2000 by Tarek Essam Ahmad Obaid and other private investors. According to foreign news reports, PetroSaudi is chaired by Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the son of the current ruler of Saudi Arabia, who also co-founded PetroSaudi with Obaid
Any Tom, Dick and Harry can come to a simple and obvious conclusion that "money lending" to PetroSaudi would be akin to selling petrol to the Saudis, ludicrous.

The deal to sign a JV was on 30 September 2009, "PetroSaudi International Limited and 1Malaysia Development Berhad in US$2.5 billion joint-venture partnership, opens new door to FDIs". By January PetroSaudi had ventured into the Stock Market and for ownership of UBG, parent to 2 prominent construction and development companies, Putrajaya Perdana and Loh & Loh.

Surely one can see why these usual critics are desirous to tarnish the Govt with dubious allegations. These are Govt initiatives bearing fruit and would put the Govt in good stead come the next GE.

Next UBG, CMS and PetroSaudi.

Catholics Will Not Support Barisan Nasional

As the opposition parties are gearing up their election machinery for the upcoming GE 13 so are their rabid sycophants within the Catholic community.

Subtly, ingraining by practising in Church masses, a past contentious issue.

Well, at least at my parish and another which shares the same parish priest.

This contentious issue, those in the SFX parish must surely admit, had been actively promulgated in the past, by a particular priest. This priest, I can attest for a fact, had been very vocal in church masses ever since the Anwar Ibrahim Sodomy I debacle.

In that 1999 election year, a completely Parti Keadilan poster emblazoned van was allowed to be parked prominently within the church compound entrance of SFX, during the election period. I found that extremely irresponsible and detestable.

Coming back to the present time. The political psy-war, reminding religious "repression", is beginning.

All Saints' Day mass in my parish, 1 November - reciting Lamb of God in Bahasa Malaysia.

The very next week, a hymn - in Bahasa Malaysia, at another parish but sharing my parish priest.

I had delayed putting up this post but I can do so no longer.

This last Sunday, the other parish in a more affluent part of Kuala Lumpur nearby, had this priest just like all opposition zombies (not the parish priest and I find it a strange "coincidence" they are all not of the parish) giving a sermon heavily political in the guise religious parallelism.

I will not mention what could be considered a very seditious remark in that sermon but suffice, by his warped opposition mentality, to ask what has PPSMI got anything to do with religion?

According to this opposition political adhering priest, decisions on this issue is "playing God".

Digressing but pertinently, in a personal conversation with a very prominent blogger of him wanting to do an article on Christian sermons, he explained to me that all sermons (khutbah) in mosques had to get clearance from the religious authorities. He asked me whether it was the same for Christian sermons. I cannot confirm then or now.

If priests and Bishops would want a hand and say in politics, I say how hypocritical. They neither protest nor condone the Merdeka Sexuality hoopla but get caught in between a rock and a hard place and resort to "nuances" which to me is more doublespeak,
"However, Bishop Paul Tan said he felt constrained to caution campaigners against the mistreatment of people with with an unconventional sexual orientation about pushing their stance to the extent it paves the way for the legitimisation of ‘queer’ behaviour."

“A wise circumspection is needed when importing the western human rights agenda lock, stock and barrel into our context,” he opined.

“There has emerged in our society a broad consensus transcending race and religion on issues of human rights - on their urgency, legitimacy and desirability,” he added.

“This consensus was long in the making and was painstakingly gained. For this reason, nothing ought to be done that would imperil this consensus arriving at its culmination in a more just and equitable Malaysia,” he elaborated
Is it any wonder priests of the lower order are given licence to engage in politics
when the Bishop can take a shot at Govt,
"Catholic Bishop Dr Paul Tan Chee Ing has expressed regret over the police ban of Seksualiti Merdeka workshop, saying it was another reflection of the manacles the powers-that-be wanted the Malaysia mind to be confined within."
because yes, Reverend father Bishop Paul Tan, Merdeka Sexuality must not be banned. But no, the Church will not support and "caution campaigners against the mistreatment of people with an unconventional sexual orientation about pushing their stance to the extent it paves the way for the legitimisation of ‘queer’ behaviour."

What I find revolting is when these opposition political campaigns are being pursued and preached in Church in the guise of quest for social reforms. They are obviously not. Not in the manner these priests would like to have us believe. It is their political proclivity that is speaking, not of men of the cloth.

I do not care if it is for or against the Govt. For or against any political party.

Funny that politically laced sermons have never had anything good to say about the Govt. Meaning if priests see it fit to criticise the Govt, by the same token should not the Govt be commended, when commendableness is due?

One such example is the Govt stand on Hudud.

Politically motivated or otherwise, non-Mulims are relieved by the Govt's stand, Christians especially cannot deny this.

Conveniently, matters like the Merdeka Sexuality and the Hudud issue would not find it's way into any sermon in Church. All practising Catholics, support or at least welcome, the Govt's decision to ban this sexuality workshop or whatever it may be.

The same can be said of the Govt's position on Hudud.

We all know where Bishop Paul Tan stands on this.

"Top Catholic bishop tells non-Muslims to support hudud in Kelantan", Harakahdaily, if you don't.

So, if Bishop and priests are actively but subtly telling Catholics the Govt is bad, it will not come as a surprise that Catholics will not support Barisan Nasional in the next 13th GE.

I end this post with a paragraph from the Vatican Council II call for all Catholics, priests and Bishops.

DECLARATION ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
DIGNITATIS HUMANAE
ON THE RIGHT OF THE PERSON AND OF COMMUNITIES
TO SOCIAL AND CIVIL FREEDOM IN MATTERS RELIGIOUS
PROMULGATED BY HIS HOLINESS POPE PAUL VI
ON DECEMBER 7, 1965
Furthermore, (a Muslim dominant) society (like Malaysia) has the right to defend itself against possible abuses committed on the pretext of freedom of religion. It is the special duty of government to provide this protection. However, government is not to act in an arbitrary fashion or in an unfair spirit of partisanship. Its action is to be controlled by juridical norms which are in conformity with the objective moral order. These norms arise out of the need for the effective safeguard of the rights of all (including Muslim) ) citizens and for the peaceful settlement of conflicts of rights, also out of the need for an adequate care of genuine public peace, which comes about when men live together in good order and in true justice, and finally out of the need for a proper guardianship of public morality.
My emphasis are in bold and parenthesis.

For the sake of those cursing me by now, the original excerpt unedited,
The right to religious freedom is exercised in human society: hence its exercise is subject to certain regulatory norms. In the use of all freedoms the moral principle of personal and social responsibility is to be observed. In the exercise of their rights, individual men and social groups are bound by the moral law to have respect both for the rights of others and for their own duties toward others and for the common welfare of all. Men are to deal with their fellows in justice and civility.

Furthermore, society has the right to defend itself against possible abuses committed on the pretext of freedom of religion. It is the special duty of government to provide this protection. However, government is not to act in an arbitrary fashion or in an unfair spirit of partisanship. Its action is to be controlled by juridical norms which are in conformity with the objective moral order. These norms arise out of the need for the effective safeguard of the rights of all citizens and for the peaceful settlement of conflicts of rights, also out of the need for an adequate care of genuine public peace, which comes about when men live together in good order and in true justice, and finally out of the need for a proper guardianship of public morality.

These matters constitute the basic component of the common welfare: they are what is meant by public order. For the rest, the usages of society are to be the usages of freedom in their full range: that is, the freedom of man is to be respected as far as possible and is not to be curtailed except when and insofar as necessary.
If any Catholic have any doubts about the authenticity of the above excerpt, go ask that opposition zombie priest who gave that sermon last Sunday or you can ask Bishop Paul Tan Chee Ing.

Blogger had always wanted to send this message to The Sun to increase it's reader circulation:

Please contact blogger to provide contact details of blogger's parish to send it's Monday to Friday issues for distribution. The Sun can then contact person/s in charge to assist in distributing The Sun among it's parishioners, as he/she/they have been assisting another free tabloid, "Selangor Times" printed by the the Selangor State Government, to circulate within the Church premises. Parishioners and blogger can then get copies of The Sun which parishioners and blogger had missed during the week.

Nuances of Bishop Paul Tan Chee according to Catholic Lawyers Malaysia on Seksualiti Merdeka,

Catholic Bishop Dr Paul Tan Chee Ing has expressed regret over the police ban of Seksualiti Merdeka workshop, saying it was another reflection of the manacles the powers-that-be wanted the Malaysia mind to be confined within.

Freedom of sexuality according to Seksualiti Merdeka that Reverend father Bishop Paul Tan neglects to know,

We believe that everyone in Malaysia deserves to be free from discrimination, harassment and violence for their sexual orientations and their gender identities. We believe it is our right to be responsible for our own body. We believe everyone is entitled to the freedom to love and the freedom to be, whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersexed, straight, asexual, pansexual, or simply fabulous.

Homosexuality according to the Catholic faith, "LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ON THE PASTORAL CARE OF HOMOSEXUAL PERSONS", that Reverend father Bishop Paul Tan should know,

All support should be withdrawn from any organizations which seek to undermine the teaching of the Church, which are ambiguous about it, or which neglect it entirely. Such support, or even the semblance of such support, can be gravely misinterpreted.

(During an audience granted to the undersigned Prefect, His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, approved this Letter, adopted in an ordinary session of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and ordered it to be published.)

NFC - Now For Condominiums

Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil has come under a lot of flack by transactions deemed unrelated to the business of the National Feedlot Corporation which is run by her husband and family.

No matter what rationale or justifications for the purchase of 2 condominiums, instead of the reported one unit, the explanations by husband of Shahrizat and Chairman of NFC, Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh, has come not only too little but most glaringly too late.

Even though the purchase was exposed by the opposition, UMNO politicians jumping in to defend the cattle project, made it what it was intended to be - politicized.

The board of the NFC, the Shahrizat family, should have immediately come out with any clarification in the matter.

After all, for whatever intention the opposition had in exposing the purchase, isn't that the duty of elected representatives to bring to public attention issues that concern taxpayers money?

For example in the 7 month bonus for PKNS company affiliated employees, it was the spokesman for the PKNS Board that came out with the justification, not political personalities in a political role.

It should have been the same in this NFC instance.

I had severely criticised Penang CM Lim Guan Eng on his lackadaisical or no response in a matter that would have elicited an immediate response and action by any right thinking responsible parent, an allegation of molest by their child.

As in the present NFC affair, it was members of the DAP that came out to defend the alleged perpetrator, instead of the parents themselves, Lim Guan Eng and wife Betty Chew.

To be continued.

Lim Guan Eng - Talk Big and Talk Cock?

In my previous post I said the Ah Beng Penang chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng, "acts as though Penang is his grandfather's property."

He only acts.

For all his grandiose announcements, from reports coming in fast and furious, he is just getting cheap propaganda.

The Star report today is revealing, "CM: No more land reclamation in Gurney Drive"
"Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said any land swap would only involve the existing land reclamation rights granted to Eastern & Oriental Bhd by the previous administration."

He even went as far as to say,
"I told the reporters in Kuala Lumpur that 299ha of reclaimed land in Sri Tanjung Pinang would be involved in the infrastructure projects."

He said no monetary payment or funding would be given by the state for the construction of three by-pass highways and a sea tunnel linking the island to the mainland.

“Costs incurred may be recovered through land swap, toll or any other form. The other three projects would involve land swapping. I’m trying to get as much as possible for Penang,” he said
That makes the whole scenario complicated in more ways than one but definitely shows it is all bluster by the Ah Beng Chief Minister.

How do you swap land that is being developed by Eastern & Oriental Bhd,
“Phase two will be a mixed integrated development comprising two islands of approximately 740 acres in size. At three times the size of phase one, phase two is expected to generate RM12bil in gross development value,” Chan told StarBiz
Eastern & Oriental Bhd also hold the concession rights for reclamation. Annual Report 2011,
In April 2011, the Penang State Government granted its approval in- principle, a crucial milestone for E&O towards reclamation of the balance concession area of 740 acres at Seri Tanjung Pinang. Going forward, other approvals by relevant authorities will need to be sought, most notably, an environmental impact assessment and traffic impact studies which are currently being undertaken.
Isn't Ah Beng Chief Minister talking cock?

Remember the E&O/Sime Darby brouhaha and ECM Libra?

How about this,
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the funding of these crucial road works would be done via a land swap.

“We will finance these projects by land swap as they are expensive. The land will be nearby reclaimed land, which means they will own a certain acreage. These companies appear to be interested (in these projects) even though they involve a land swap. We might as well use something to improve traffic,” Lim said in an interview after opening the one-day investPenang seminar organised by ECM Libra Financial Group Bhd recently.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng - Third Link Tunnel via Land Swap Deal

The Penang third link tunnel had been a news item back in April 2011 and was reported Nov 14, 2011 "Penang govt proposes tunnel as third link" as though it were a new initiative by the Penang State Govt.

Quote:
"The tunnel is one of four projects announced by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng here to resolve the island's severe traffic problems."

Never mind. What is more interesting is,

Quote:
"We estimate that the project will cost RM5bil to RM8bil depending on the bids from prospective contractors," he told a press conference Monday. Lim said the state government will pay the contractors via a land swap deal.
and
"It will be a win-win situation. The government does not have to pay money and the contractor gets prime land that will triple in value," he said.
Win-win? the people of Penang losing "prime land that will triple in value" just to get an easy ride to Butterworth?

Maybe the tunnel would have hospitals or shopping malls.

As I recall in that damning titled report "Malaysia Losses From Racial Law Exposed" by Bloomberg,

The state can’t offer tax breaks for investors or sell bonds, both controlled by the federal government, so it plans to use revenue from local land levie to build more roads and a third bridge linking the island to its mainland territories, according to Lim, who is also secretary-general of the opposition Democratic Action Party.

This is the typical talk big syndrome of the DAP.

The Chief Minister from Malacca acts as though Penang is his grandfather's property.

Lim Kit Siang - Chinese Support for the PAS’ Struggle of an Islamic State will only give UMNO an Opportunity to Seriously Implement an Islamic State

Confused? Read on.

"Chinese support for the PAS’ struggle of an Islamic State in the coming general elections will only give UMNO an opportunity to seriously implement an Islamic State in Malaysia after the polls"

Speech by Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Kota Melaka, Lim Kit Siang, at the Petaling Jaya Old Town Branch committee meeting at Petaling Jaya on Thursday, April 24, 1986 at 8 pm, here.

Full transcript,

*"There is a strange and common political activity in Chinese organisations, associations and societies recently, for there is a concerted plan by an organised group to get the Chinese to come out in support of PAS in the next general elections.

The people behind this campaign were the ones who, in the 2008 general elections, supported a Pakatan Rakyat strategy of ‘Attack into the Pakatan to rectify the Pakatan’. This 2008 strategy has proved to be a great failure, for it not only failed to rectify the Pakatan Rakyat in its nation-building policies, the Malaysian Chinese find that their political, economic, educational, social, cultural and religious rights never experienced such unprecedented and wide-ranging erosion in 8 years since 2003 as compared to the 46 years from 1957 to 2003.

*For the coming general elections, these people have a new strategy, to support PAS, purportedly to ‘change government’.

These people had brought ‘disaster’ to the people in the 2008 general elections because of their catastrophic strategy. What is there to ensure that this new strategy of theirs, to mobilise Chinese support for PAS to the extent of even fighting other Chinese, would not be even more disastrous and datastrophic than their 2008 gambit?

These people must be the only non-Muslims in the world who are openly advocating the Islamic State concept of PAS. These people are not bothered or concerned about the meaning of an Islamic State, but only interested in supporting PAS in the urban areas to split the Chinese voters, either the DAP or PKR candidates.

*These people are not bothered that in an Islamic state, non-Muslims cannot be entrusted with the responsibility of framing the general policy of the State, or dealing with matter vital to its safety and integrity; and cannot be Members of Parliament, Assemblymen, Ministers, Prime Minster’ or even be top government officials or judges.

*These people are not bothered that in an Islamic State, the present Constitution would have to be scrapped, replaced by an Islamic Constitution based on the Koran, and where only Muslims can interpret and amend the Constitution.

*These people are not bothered that in an Islamic State, the people will cease to have the voting rights as at present, for in an Islamic State, non-Muslims cannot vote to influence the national direction or the laws. This is because in an Islamic State, power is no more derived from the people (as at present) but from the Koran!


These people are only interested in giving support to the PAS struggle of an Islamic State so long as in the urban areas, it would split Chinese voters to enable DAP and PKR candidates to win by default!

Although these people want the Chinese organisations, associations and societies to support the PAS in the next general elections, on the ground that with such support PAS could translate its present few Members of Parliament a greater number of MPs in next general elections to form the next national government, you must believe it.

These people do not believe it themselves, for all they want is to deny Barisan Nasional from winning and to help PAS or PKR candidates. PAS does not believe it, but it does the Islamic party no harm to have a group of very enthusiastic non-Muslim Chinese running around in Chinese society selling the PAS’ objective of an Islamic State even though only by a Pakatan Rakyat consensus.

The PKR is not very upset, for it is sure of forming the next government, with the BN chances in the next general elections undermined by these group of PAS supporters in the Chinese community.

In fact, if the Malaysian Chinese demonstrate that they give some measure of support to the PAS’ struggle of an Islamic State in the coming general elections, when PAS together with PKR comes to power, it would have the justification and opportunity to seriously implement an Islamic State in Malaysia after the polls.

We must not forget that there are also people in PKR who want to establish an Islamic State. Voices calling for an Islamic State is not only heard from PAS, but also from inside PKR, demanding the replacement of the present Malaysian Constitution with an Islamic Constitution.

*In September 1985, when opening a seminar on Concept of the Islamic State in Petaling Jaya, the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamed, said that the creation of an Islamic State would take tens of years, and the first step would be to make Islam the official religion.

If these strategists succeed in getting some Chinese electoral support for PAS, the PAS or PAS-sponsored candidate wins (and even worst, cause the Barisan to lose), it will be a signal to Pas and those in PKR that it could shorten the time span for establishment of an Islamic State in Malaysia.

When this happens, who is to blame but the Chinese and these ‘election strategists’ who want the Chinese to support PAS against the Barisan, and who in 2008, wanted the voters to support the opposition against BN?

I would call on these people who are working for the PAS cause for the coming general elections to come out openly to explain to the Malaysian Chinese community why they are supporting the cause of an Islamic State in Malaysia. Can they also support an Islamic State by the PAS/PKR Government after the next general elections?"

Yes, it is NOT the actual speech by DAP Supremo, Lim Kit Siang.

It is a remastered version for a same difference.

Hew Kuan Yau DAP Skunks

I just read this.

That Ah Beng Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng, should give this skunk, Hew Kuan Yau, a post in the State Govt for hawker affairs.

As I understand it, his foul mouthed capabilities will be very useful in disciplining wayward hawkers.

In fact any post requiring his smelly attributes is a shoo in. What with another skunk, Zairil Khir Johari nee Abdullah, not only being special assistant to the Penang CM Ah Beng but singing the other skunk praises as well.

Why not? As they are so proud of their culture, The rise of POP-litical culture,

"Our leaders practically became celebrities, and this was most evident in the case of speaker extraordinaire Dr Hew Kuan Yau, notoriously called “Superman” for his trademark T-shirts that bore the “S” emblem. He had burst onto the scene with his fiery rhetoric and quickly gained infamy through some controversial (but hilarious) remarks about a certain BN component party." - Zairil Khir Johari nee Abdullah
Another favourable post could be Director for Chinese Education. After all skunk Dr Hew is also the DAP Political Education Director and DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) National Secretary.


Then Ah Beng Penang CM can have another industry in the state for FDI, skunk breeding.

Tony Pua and the E-Coli Political Vendetta

Tony Pua stop the cheap publicity stunts.

In my previous post, I alluded to your new found profession as health inspector, to check other various outlets for the same fault.

That you deliberately single out Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia shows your shallow political publicity stunts and belie any real concern for citizens.

In that same sensational report, it made clear that Mydin operates the stores and therefore there would be no question of liability on the part of the Govt in the event of any untoward incident to KR1M's customers.

But of course the DAP can call upon the many loyarburoks within and without the party to make a case just to embarrass the Govt, which is the sole motive for your actions.

That you, and that housewife who has nothing better to do, to make a press conference outside a KR1M outlet, is an undeniable proof of political vendetta.

Quote,
"At least one Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia product was found to contain E coli bacteria while nine others fell short of standards set by the Food and Regulations Acts a Pakatan Rakyat lawmaker claimed today

But the Petaling Jaya Utara MP added that the product in question was no longer available since October 23.

Other products tested and investigated are the outlet's bottled oyster sauce, pineapple jam, ice-cream, condensed milk, canned milk creamer, canned ghee, canned sardine, and canned curry chicken"
The sneaky manner you must have collected the items for testing and then proceed to demo said products outside the kedai shows the level of Pakatani tactics, worst than E-Coli 0157:H.

I wonder what and how you made enquiries with the kedai staff and what would they be feeling when you made that press conference, "Nurul Izzah right gestures during a press conference outside the Kedai Rakyat in Bandar Tun Razak November 11 2011"

Shameless, despicable and downright dirty.

By the way, if you need to prove that KR1M merchandise are e-coli tainted especially with the more dangerous strain, spend some money.

You and that idiotic housewife could get results faster.

I do hope that instead of "an ordinary citizen taking the relevant ministries to court", Mydin would take you and that dumb housewife to court and to the cleaners, suing the daylights out of the both of you for defamation.

I earnestly hope Mydin will make your cheap political stunts an expensive one.

Tony Pua - Open Mouth Talk Cock..Again

Synchronicity is a funny thing.

I was reading something quite humorous about Tony the Tompel Pua's qualifications, which I will post later on, sure enough Tompel Tony opens his mouth and talk cock again.

The opposition disposed portal The Malaysian Insider, in a sensational report "Pua claims harmful bacteria in 1Malaysia goods"
"A test of the products from two certified labs detected the presence of E. Coli, and a higher than permitted amount of coliform in the 1 Malaysia-branded fresh milk, DAP publicity chief Tony Pua told reporters outside one of the outlets in Bandar Tun Razak today."
Hello Tompel Tony, What Is E. Coli
Several types of E. coli exist as part of the normal flora of the human gut and have several beneficial functions, such as the production of vitamin K2. They also prevent harmful bacteria, known as pathogenic bacteria, from establishing themselves in the intestine

Most E. coli strains pose no harm to human health, except for serotype O157:H7, which can cause food poisoning in humans and can become life-threatening. Other less common serotypes, such as O104:H4, O121, O26, O103, O111, O145,and O104:H21 can also cause serious infection.
You sure know one. Don't tell me you don't know mehhh.

If the e-coli was the more harmful and serious strain, 0157:H7, you go to TMI only ah? The whole wide world and the WWW would know by now.

Don't forget to wash your hands, ok. You know one, here got how.

Jack of all trades. Now become health inspector. You good lah.

At least you are doing something up your alley.

Keep it up. Only thing, don't open mouth talk cock.

---------------------------------------

Sorry folks. Went and had a smoke.

Tompel Tony is an Oxford PPE grad. Blogger just found out why Tompel Tony named his blog as such.

Anyway, dunno whether Tompel did post graduate stuff but five years ago in his dot.com 2006 Annual Report,
Tony holds a second class (division one) honours Bachelor of Arts degree (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) from Keble College, Oxford University on a scholarship from MTC Foundations in 1994.
MTC Foundations hmmm. Malaysian Tobacco Company..never mind.

Here's the humour.
When it comes to a degree, students are likely to be aiming for a Geoff Hurst (a first), but are more likely to end up with a Trevor Nunn (2:1) or a Desmond - as in Archbishop Desmond Tutu (2:2).

But those who have been absent from too many lectures, may find themselves with a Douglas Hurd (a third) or worse still, a Dan Quayle (fail).
PS

Dear Tompel Tony,

I know you patronise Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia, being patriotic.

As the DAP designated health inspector, can you please also check Carrefour, Jusco, Giant, Tesco, burger stalls, Victoria Station, Uncle Chilis, TGIF etc etc.

For me ah, the burger stalls first. Can ah? My son loves Ramli burger.

Added 3.00 pm

Oops Malaysiakini also got.

Tony Pua - Open Mouth Talk Cock

Tony "Tompel" Pua opened his mouth about "the government’s decision to increase public sector expenditure".

We all must share his concerns. We don't want our country to go bankruptsville.

Tony is well qualified on the matter.

Singing Sing Dollars 10,000 a month, while his much hyped dot.com company finances was going south down south, gives him suitable credentials.

Being "also the DAP National Publicity Secretary, as well as the investment liaison officer for the Penang Chief Minister based in the Klang Valley", he should author a "How To Avoid Your Company From Going Bust in Record Time for Dummies" book.

Opening his mouth, Tony the Tompel "Pua had previously said that the DAP would work towards progressively improving the efficiency of Malaysia’s bloated civil service by terminating government staff who failed to perform once Pakatan Rakyat (PR) secures federal power."

It's not only me who is saying that Tompel Tony talks cock.

Even his fellow Pakatanis "would like to clarify that the position of the 1.2 million civil servants and officers will be guaranteed as enshrined in (Articles 132 and 135) of the Constitution."

That's Tompel Tony's DAP "Democracy, Integrity, Social Justice and Equality of Opportunities" for you.

Please forgive me Tompel Tony if these were not your exact words, "Malaysia’s bloated civil service" because if it were, you are talking cock again.

Let's see now.

According to the Chief Secretary of Malaysia Website,
"To date, the Malaysian Public service has staff strength of 1.2 million
employees
covering 28 schemes of service including the Federal Public
Service, the State Public Services, the Joint Public Services, the Education
Service, the Judiciary, the Legal Service, the Police and Armed
Forces
."
For a population of 28.66 million the number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population is 4.2%.

As a comparison looking at some countries from "Administration
and the Civil Service in the EU 27 Member States
" fact sheet.

Belgium
Population: 10.5 million
Number of public sector employees: 840,000
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 8%

Finland
Population: 5.3 million
Number of State employees: 124,000 (including 103,000 civil servants)
Number of public sector employees: 562,000
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 13%

France
Population: 65 million
Number of public sector employees: 5.2 million
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 8%

Germany
Population: 82.17 million
Number of public sector employees: 4.5 million
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 5.5%

Hungary
Population: 10 million
Number of public sector employees: 760,000
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 7.6%

Ireland
Population: 4.2 million
Number of public service employees: 316,000
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 7.5%

Sweden
Population: 9.1 million
Number of public sector employees: 1.125 million
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 12%

United Kingdom
Population: 60.7 million
Number of public sector employees: 2.75 million (20% at central level)
Number of public service staff as a percentage of the total population - 4.5%

Mind you, these figures may not take into account the Police and Armed Forces. See Datuk Rocky's post, "Civil Servants and DAP".

What does this all add up to?

Apart from being economic advisor to Secretary-General the Ah Beng Chief Minister of Penang, Tompel Tony, as aforementioned, is also the DAP National Publicity Secretary.

Talking cock for cheap publicity.

If Tompel Tony has nothing better to do, he should keep to price checking, earth shattering disclosures of Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia merchandise being "not cheap", which would be much appreciated by housewives like Nurul Izzah.

It would be more up his alley.

For cheap publicity, "not cheap" 10,000 Sing Dollar man Tompel Tony, might not then be so open mouth talk cock.

20.11.2011 "World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims"

Tomorrow 11th November is a significant date in that it would be scripted thus 11.11.11 universally.

This is a bit flawed descriptively as the millennium or century to be precise is not included in the formula. In other words the year is short formed.

Which brings me to 20th November 2011.

This looks more distinct and complete, the way dates are styled in Malaysia that is, and it would be written 20.11.2011

On that day nothing of note would seem to be happening unless you are getting married.

Lets hope those getting married on 20 November 2011 would not encounter anything untoward on the road.

They wouldn't want to be another statistic in the "World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims" which will be observed on that same day.

Fatal road traffic accidents being a common occurrence especially during the festive holidays, "World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims" is indeed relevant for Malaysia.

That day falling on a Sunday, I call upon all Christians to have a special prayer for the thousands who have perished in road accidents over the years.

"On the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims we mourn the estimated 1.3 million people who lose their lives on the world's streets and highways each year, and we renew our resolve to prevent further deaths. Many tragedies can be avoided through a set of proven, simple measures that benefit not only individuals and families but society at large." - Mr Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General. Message on the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, 21st November 2010.

DAP - Anwar Is Our Prime Minister Now and Then

2011


The Malaysia Insider, It is still Anwar for PM, says Guan Eng,
"DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng insisted today that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be the prime minister if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) takes over Putrajaya.

“We’ve already said so many times. It will be Anwar Ibrahim."

“We have said who is going to be prime minister when PR wins power. So it is very, very clear,” the Penang chief minister told reporters in George Town, according to a voice recording.

Very, very clear indeed. Flashback 1986.

1986


Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Kota Melaka, Lim Kit Siang, in Petaling Jaya, 21st April 1986 :
"Anwar started his political career with the reputation of a liberal, but he now seem to be the new advocate for repression and suffocation of dissent.

Is this the price Anwar must pay so that he could make his bid for the future Prime Ministership in the country?

Anwar Ibrahim should know that his warning is meaningless and an empty one, for it is merely a warning that he would violate the constitution and the law of sedition."
Papa Lim, Son & Co never learn. Or so it seems.

Anwar Ibrahim Has A "Malaysian Spring" Dream

"However, the growth enjoyed by developing countries should not be jeopardized by the imposition of non-trade issues such as labour standard, minimum wage, human rights and environment." - Anwar Ibrahim, Joint IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings, Madrid, 4 October 1994

"We believe there is no inherent contradiction between the existence of a body of fundamental liberties enshrined in the constitution of a civil society on the one hand, and a set of rules and regulations governing the proper enjoyment of these liberties on the other. Thus, in Malaysia, any sensible examination of human rights must not draw its substance solely from the Federal Constitution but also all Acts of Parliaments and State Enactments bearing on the subject. Any rethinking of human rights must necessarily entail a consideration of the implications and consequences on the social order, the preservation of harmony and political stability. We must take full cognizance of not only the historical antecedents of our Constitution and laws, but also of the specific mischief that was intended to be avoided. In other words, we cannot indiscriminately argue for the wholesale adoption of Western norms and models. Perhaps even those closer to home may not be quite appropriate to our particular situation." - Anwar Ibrahim, The International Conference on Rethinking Human Rights, Kuala Lumpur, 7 December 1994

Bloomberg reports,

“We’re taking over the government at the rate we’re going,” Anwar said in an interview yesterday at his office in parliament in Kuala Lumpur, citing as a sign of support a July 9 rally where thousands marched and called for greater fairness in election practices. Currently on trial for sodomy -- a charge he says was influenced by the ruling party -- he predicted that the opposition would be boosted even if he is convicted.

Anwar Ibrahim's one and only goal has and will always be, Prime Minister of Malaysia.

That is his dream.

Some dreams do come true. Anwar the poster boy. Well, for wife Wan Azizah at least,

“All these posters were of Anwar,” Wan said. “For me, that was a sign from God, so I picked Anwar.”

And some can become a nightmare,

"Because I was aware of his links to certain groups of people in the west, people like Paul Wolfowitz, among others. We know that Paul Wolfowitz, the person who planned the Iraq War, and among the leaders of the neo cons, obviously he is very pro-Israel, and it comes as no surprise that he, too, is a Zionist.

It is the same with his links to the Foundation for the Future.

Incidentally, who was the person who launched the Foundation for the Future in 2005? It was US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. So, it was a body set up by the U.S. State Department.

The objectives are clear. It is being used as an organisation that moves on the pretext of working for democracy in the Middle East. We can see that it is an adjunct for a U.S. agenda in establishing hegemony and control."

Events unfolding in the Arab world gives Anwar confidence, no?

Syria, Iran why not Malaysia?

Here is a man who is embroiled in so many sexual controversies. That in itself raises concerns for many.

His sexual tribulations concern me not. Truth be told I would not care what a person's sexual preferences, fetish and the like are.

In the privacy of his home, condominium or hotel, what one does is his own business.

When you are exposed like MCA President, Chua Soi Lek, you do the right thing. You own up, admit to a wrongdoing and accept responsibility for your actions. You seek forgiveness from those deeply hurt by your actions and you move on.

Anwar claims that Sodomy I was a political conspiracy by then PM, Tun Mahathir. But even in acquitting him of sodomising his driver by the Federal Court, it is put on public record in that decision, there was homosexual activity.

Excerpt,

“…even though reading the appeal record, we find evidence to confirm that the appellants were involved in homosexual activities and we are more inclined to believe that the alleged incident at Tivoli Villa did happen, sometime, this court,as a court of law, may only convict the appellants if the prosecution has successfully proved the alleged offences as stated in the charges, beyond reasonable doubt, on admissible evidence and in accordance with established principles of law.

And again as in Sodomy II, it's a political conspiracy. This time by present PM, Datuk Seri Najib. Upon his release from Sodomy I here is an interesting view and I quote relevant passages,
"The response came in the same paper from the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak with the statement that the Barisan Nasional, the coalition of parties led by UMNO, the United Malay National Organisation of the Prime Minister, in power, was willing to cooperate with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or any opposition party for the sake of the country."
and more tellingly,
"His counsel dismissed any suggestion that the Federal Court’s decision was politically motivated."
And with that all "Conspiracies" and homosexual activities are suitably personified.

On account of that flight to Turkey, the embassy that ie, so do my supposal concur with what is on record in that Federal Court finding.

Sexcapades of an individual in politics are nothing new.

It is Anwar the man, the unprincipled and hypocritical, that disqualifies him from any position of public office, what more as Prime minister. This is more crucial by having serious and tragic consequences for the future of our country.

For a person who has also made a name of himself by bringing lawsuits against those who have alleged to have slandered him, I am not alone in finding it peculiar that he is doing no such thing to the Datuk T Trio, in the sextape expose.

Or even Datuk Zaid in this blistering broadside against his character like his party,
"I am quitting because I want to dissociate myself from liars and cheats. I do not want to be part of a group that propagates lies and does not have any qualms about cheating for as long as the end justifies the means,'' he told The Star.
and PKR party election irregularities,
“That’s why I took strong objection to PKR. If the conduct of your own party elections is questionable, then how are you going to run the country? The electoral irregularities were known at the highest level in PKR. How can that be tolerated?
Yes, at the rate they are going, it is no wonder Ambiga now takes her defunct cause overseas. She can also count on the the media there to be "truthful".

A popular saying "lightning never strikes the same place twice". It must either be "conspiracies" or he must be an unluckiest person this side of the planet.

I do hope he gets off Sodomy II though that will not be fair for the complainant if the allegations were true. Then, Anwar will not have any excuse to exploit his plight, "he predicted that the opposition would be boosted even if he is convicted".

BN can easily engage him on any issue. For example name one good thing that Anwar has accomplished.

The opposition can. Only ONE. Kept the other two parties holding hands which is taboo for one and antipathetic for the other. Pathetic.

This is Anwar Ibrahim.

Remember the nightmare and why give credence? In a letter to the same but one time close comrade and compatriot Chandra Muzaffar,
I am glad to hear, though I am not surprised, that you have vowed to persist in your struggle for freedom, justice and unity. Anyone who has followed your career and admired your erudition, your articulateness and your zeal for truth and justice in the tradition of scholarly disputation knows you cannot be cowed. Yours is a courage born of sincerity, which is foreign to your persecutors. You are a "subversive" element only because you provide an effective challenge to the predatory appetites of the corrupt regime. And, to paraphrase E.E. Cummings, you are one who has been "cursed with a talent for thinking" at the very time when the government demands of the people "the exact antithesis of thinking"
We need to expose Anwar for what he is.

I respond to the Bloomberg report with another Anwar "nonpareil",
The legitimacy of the elected government rests on its commitment to fulfill the aspiration of the electorate to better themselves economically and socially. At the same time, we have to preserve national unity, which hinges upon maintaining justice but also the delicate balance of conflicting and contending interests and passions. In this respect, we tend to agree with Samuel Huntington, when he suggests that "the interaction of economic progress and Asian culture appears to have generated a distinctly East Asian variety of democratic institutions." Professor Huntington notes that Malaysia, together with Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Indonesia, share a similar type of democracy which serves "not Western values of competition and change, but Asian values of consensus and stability." What Professor Huntington fails to observe, however, is that we do not see democracy as the sole and overriding goal of society. For us, with the peculiar nature and needs of our society, we have to go beyond promising freedom and equality, and even beyond maintaining consensus and stability." - Anwar Ibrahim, Seminar on Post-Marxian Political Thought, Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka, Kuala Lumpur, 28 September 1992
In the 2008 election the opposition triumphantly credited the new media for the unprecedented results.

The new media will, by exposing this hypocritical and unprincipled excuse of a human being, ensure Anwar's "Malaysian Spring", remain a dream.

Malaysia does not have Spring. What it has are rainy seasons. Like the wet one we are experiencing these past few weeks.

So while Anwar envisions a "Malaysian Spring" to Putrajaya, what he is actually having is just a dream.

A wet dream.

In The Name of the Father, Lim Guan Eng

In the name of the father, The Sundaily in a report today,
"Lim's special assistant Zairil Khir Johari lodged the report at the George Town district police headquarters today after Umno failed to retract and apologise for the articles on Lim's under-aged son, over an alleged wrong-doing since mid-October.
Maybe, as Chief Minister, he already has scheduled official appointments to attend. Can't help that, right?

When the Chief Minister gave 48 hours that in ultimatum on 27 October, as reported by the Malaysian Insider he is quoted,
"I wanted to put the matter to rest so as not to affect my young son He had skipped school for two days when the lies first surfaced. I had no wish for him to go through with this again or deal with police investigations which involves ninja character assassins operating behind shadowy pro-BN blogs" he said in a statement today.
Come on lah Mr Chief Minister.

A father who would dote on his son when,
"Denying the allegations, he explained that his son had requested a transfer to St Xavier’s Institution in Penang from SMK (C) Heng Yee as he did not want to have a “crew-cut” hairstyle as required in the latter school"
in a posting carried in your own Papa's blog, you remained mum on such a serious allegation, when the issue initially surfaced? Malaysiakini reported mum's the word, on the 17 Oct 2011.

In that same posting in your Papa's blog the next day 18 October, it must have been really unnerving for your son that,
“In the meantime, my wife and I will try to heal my young son and pray that he will recover from having his innocence so cruelly destroyed by these pro-Umno beasts,” he said.
In the name of the father on the 20 October so concerned was,
"DAP chairperson Karpal Singh has called on the police to act against bloggers accusing Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's 16-year-old son of molesting his classmate."
because your son was traumatised. Yes, that was a Malaysiakini report.

In the name of the father, on the 24 October,
"DAP's publicity secretary Tony Pua said retractions and a public apology are in order from all websites and newspapers that are alleged to have defamed Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and his teenage son."
It was reported also by Malaysiakini.

Keeping you promise to your son,
"Lim clarified that his son was transferred to the school of his choice after scoring at least 6As in his PMR, as had been promised to him."
without further ado, so posted Papa also. You were however not so forthcoming with the UMNO "beasts", maganimously giving them an additional 48 hours to comply before acting.

All in all, from this day to that, in the name of the father, a full 14 days for an aggrieved and much loved son.

In the name of the father, of the son, by the wholly most, the most-significant others.
