We have these defenseless buggers in abundance here in Malaysia and those found in urban areas have become a nuinance, ( see... it is man-the greedy moron- who encroaches and tears down this little fella's habitat and leave him with no place to live )...so we have the whole "intellegent" cabinet withdrawing the protection accorded under the Wildlife Protection Act , while some crony sets up a company and offers RM 30.00 per "live" monkey to bounty hunters as reward.
A little 'monkey' also told me, this "export company" has an agreed contract to market this prized easy pickings for up to RM300.00 per head ! I wonder how much of this is true.... but then who cares...do you ?? Does anyone know the name of this company ? The directors or share-holders ?
Looks like everything has a price, right ?....now try and imagine how much we can profit if we were to market these monkeys' bigger "cousins-in-suits" who walk the corridors of power........eerrmhh..no, not much lah...cos the sale is priced according to brain-size lah ! Nope...surely not profit, but I like the thought and am willing to forego any profit !
I cannot stand tall as a proud Malaysian this Merdeka for I am ashamed and I bow my head in mourning for the fate of this little fella who incidently is a relative....... and yours too !! It's okay if you still want to deny......afterall we do live in a state of 'DENIAL'...right ?
Caring Malaysians indeed....so to everyone else...Merdeka ! whatever that means anymore !

Yes...I am talking about the Champions Youth Cup under-19 tournament from Aug 8-19. Can you imagine that RM17m of our money is spent on a 12-day tournament? I believe the Ministry has signed on a 2+1 year deal, which makes it three years with a total of RM51 million ++ folks, over a combined total of a 36-day period .
Will somebody please answer these few awkward yet pertinent questions ???
How can a 12-day under-19 football tournament, even involving the world’s best clubs help elevate the status and standard of Malaysian football ?
Is there some kind of twinning programme where our under-19s can live, train, and compete in Europe ?
How does training with the Arsenal Academy for a week or two help improve the quality of our national under-19 team that went there ?
Isn’t that eyewash just to show that the CYC is beneficial to Malaysian football ?
If this was a showcase event for the celebration of 50 years of Merdeka, then why this isn’t a tournament that parades the stars of these clubs ?
Do Azalina and gang believe we the Malaysians are going to fill the stadiums to watch these matches when there are no big names in these teams ?
Are we being again conned by the "certain foreigners" with the help of our own kind who are probably profiteering out of this too ?
Who is going to question Azalina and her gang on this ?
But what stuns me the most is that the same Cabinet Committee for Sports that has demanded an explanation from the FAM, has not questioned the justification of spending RM17 of taxpayers’ money on a tournament that is in no way going to help develop Malaysian football.
Shouldn’t that money be channeled to football development? If Azalina and the Cabinet are truly interested in seeing our "juara kampung" football improve, and if they are sincere about wanting to help, then shouldn’t they have been more thrifty than spendthrift ?
Everyone knows that Malaysian football needs that money more than the "white men" who own this tournament. Here’s Malaysian football crying for help, and the Malaysian Government is pumping its money into frivolous ventures.
Sure hosting the CYC is good, but at this cost, it’s a sheer waste of money, At the end of the day we will be paying the "mat sallehs" RM17 million to humilate and demoralise our under-19 team right in our own backyard ! And then what is the Cabinet Committee going to do, ask for another report from FAM....or the usual post-mortem again ??
I am no fan of the FAM, and I know it has not done much to make its defence good. But how sincere can Azalina and the Cabinet Committee be about wanting to see football development in this country when they keep focusing on money-making ventures ?
A little bird also told me that a certain officer of the Ministry’s communications department is going to financially benefit from this tournament too ?.....heheheh...ya baby... Malaysia Boleh !!
I know the mainstream media can’t question the justification of the CYC because Azalina basically has them by their balls by investing in the various papers on advertisements. On top of that, the organizers have invested more than RM1 million in advertising in yet another main -stream paper.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but what it simply means here is, instead of sending the under-19s to Arsenal Academy, we should send our National team to Brasil for maybe 3 weeks or even 3 months (never mind the cost !!) and voila'...!... we'd have a world class team ready for the next world cup !...yes ??
So I believe we should say our piece and help put an end to this tournament being played here again for that kind of money. This year’s RM17m is lost, but I, Shanghai Stephen, hereby propose we still can save the country from being "screwed" of another RM34 million of our hard earned tax money !!
