And to all who have not spoken to your mother in a while...call her now and wish her "Happy Mother's Day"...and as John Lennon sings....."Mother you had me...but I never had you......." !
But seriously...... to the rest of you who have lost your mothers.....call your mother-in-law....!

This is the "towering" Malaysian and who is also the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Mr. Jamaludin Jarjis (or is it "Najis"?) who recently uttered derogatory remarks against all 'dark skinned' Malaysians of Indian origin and that too, in a land where every spoken word has to be "politically correct" ! Below I reproduce the letter from Malaysiakini, written by a Dr. Sheela Moorthy...and surf here too for more....!
Apology demanded from racist minister Dr Sheela Moorthy May 2, 07 2:52pm
I am a Malaysian currently living in the USA. I am supporting the education of my sister who is enrolled at CalPoly, California. The reason I am writing this letter is to express my disgust and anger regarding comments passed by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Jamaludin Jarjis during a working visit to California recently. He was present at a gathering organised by the Malaysian Consulate for the students to meet him. The purpose of this meeting was for them to address any concerns or queries they had. Being away from home, we all know that we love to meet our fellow-countrymen regardless of what color or creed they may be. And being brought up in the true Malaysian way, we were thought to respect each other and look beyond the shallowness of skin color. This was not the case with our minister. He made several derogatory remarks about Indians in general, about how they were brought in as 'buruh kasar' and at one point asked my sister about how many Indians were in her batch of students. My sister answered him saying there were two of them. The other Indian student was fair-skinned and was actually sitting at the same table as the minister.
He did not realize that this student was also an Indian and went on saying that he must be a 'high class’ Indian and then pointed at my sister and said that she must be a ‘low class’ Indian as she was darker skinned. I am appalled that we have people like this sitting at the helm and trying to run a multi-racial country. I urge all Malaysian to stand together and voice out against weeds like this who give our country a bad image. I demand an apology from him and I want him to take responsibility for his words and I believe that malaysiakini is one of the venues to voice my dissatisfaction.

Do you think, if you were arrested by the police of a foreign government in a foreign country, our boys will come running and help you...think again, as these people will be too busy partying and having a holiday there, rather then moving their fat arse to help you! Remember the case of one such Malaysian, who some time ago flew from the Carribean to London to have his passport stamped but was then given the run around by incompetant government servants based in London, who would not lift a finger to help him despite the knowledge of his plight and his pleas to get things done right ? Always "belum jumpa fail", "belum dapat arahan" or "Pegawai pergi kursus/cuti/cuti beranak/cuti tahun/balik kampong" or "encik, balik lain minggu, boleh?"... and when you do come the next week, it is the same story again....thats the SOP of our government servants who are paid salaries by the tax-payers (i.e. you and I ) work, here and abroad !!
Back to this case , an officer (read government servant) in the Malaysian mission in Belgium, was alerted by the Belgium counter-parts of the arrest of this Malaysian lady only 2 weeks ago ( though she was arrested on 26th. December 2006) but the Malaysian mission did not bother to inform the family in Malaysia and only confessed to that news when a relative called the mission in Belgium last Friday after the victim sounding frantic and distraught herself called her nephew here in Malaysia. And to make matters worst, the Malaysian Embassy does not know the reason for the arrest...heh...heh...guess they forgot to ask !
"Tetap dan Berpencen", "Berkhidmat untuk Negara" and the ever popular "Malaysia Boleh" !!!

Yes, I'm talking about the 'convieniently' forgotten ( if not for this paper- here ) and out-casted, unemployable Mynamar family whose lives took to an even more tragic turn and were themselves locked-up and subjected to endless hours of questioning by our famous"gestapo" styled police and separated from their own children, all because of being 'ignorant' !
We all took the 'moral high road' in being suspicious of the family's intentions and thus concured to mete out judgement of them being crooks, as opposed to our brag of being "caring Malaysians"! Not once did we stop to think otherwise....of course there were some with hearts ! But the rest of us flowed with the tide of being 'ungrateful'....and NOW the family has totally refused any form of help from Yin's family (both cash and food !) and had only one wish from Yin's family...that is...."the least they could have done was visited us when we were remanded for four days...it's not about the money...just giving us words of encouragement.......that would have been enough!!" ....and Yin's family had thousands of words of comfort from hundreds of "caring Malaysians" in their hour of gloom !!!!!!
As I choke on the Mynamar family's wishful words.... you go and have a "Happy Vesak Day and to my wife who today, two scores and three years ago, literally sent her mum into Labour".... happy birthday darling !
