And rightly so, because this "banning" the use of the word "Allah" has got a lot of right-minded Malaysians pissed-off and frustrated...not just Christians but also Malaysians of all walks of life who think the "junior minister" was desperately championing the voices of bigots !
Yes....yes we also know that elections are around the corner so....getting some extra mileage and attention-drawn now would be a good move on this Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum's rather depleting popularity ! The things they do for attention !
If you ask me, there are more pertinent and pressing issues to be discussed in that precious few minutes for debate at the august house by our so-called "representatives" than raising dubious and frivolous non-beneficial questions like the usage of the revered and universal word "Allah" in a weekly Christian paper and harping on the same in a multi-religious and multi-cultural country like Malaysia! Stop it and focus clearly, you morons....yes... you, who represent me in Parliament !
Tell me now....like why are we not talking about the Nurin killers and a host of other child killers anymore, or the rising house-breaking crimes and snatch theft cases or the ever-present "mat-rempit" menace on our streets or the corrupt "gate-keeper" Zakaria and his mansion in Klang or even the Port Klang FTZ "fiasco" or the thieving UMNO buggers who rob funds allocated for poor flood victims in the east coast states or finding a solution for the 300 odd displaced Bangladeshis ! Not to mention corruption in the police, road transport, land and immigration departments ???
These are REAL issues to be tackled folks and everyone (read, us... tax-payers ! ) is ok with it ? Sheeesh !
Read the BBC's take here
and the Star's here !
Good news this one is, yes !.... but lets not forget those other "real" issues mentioned above ...."Happy New Year.... to all of you folks !! "

Now many of us have been affected by European laws but this latest one may have escaped some of you. The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the EU, rather than German., which was the alternative.
As part of the negotiations the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that will be known as ‘Euro-English’.
In the first year, ‘s’ will replace the soft ‘c’ . Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants very happy. The hard ‘c’ will be dropped in favour of ‘k’ and this should klear up confusion, and keyboards
We expext that publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome ‘ph’ will be replaced with ‘f’. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling
By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to step such as replasing ‘th’ with ‘z’ and ‘w’ with ‘v’. During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary ‘o’
.....and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrinun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza.
Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
If zis mad you smil. Pleas pas on to oza pepl.

Yes, both the morons in the Zoo Negara authority and the parents of the little girl who was mauled (see the Malay Mail report here ) by a leopard or puma or even a remotely spotted panther, stop this on-going accusations..and move on ! So far nobody can even be sure what animal actually attacked this little girl ! Sheeesh ! And I'm truly sorry what happened to this poor little girl !
It can never be the animals fault, period ! ...see I am a ardent and regular visitor to our zoos and I have seen how these visitors, yes Malaysians of all races, treat these poor captive creatures of God !
The Zoo authorities are duty-bound to protect the animals from us humans by making sure the "buffer" zone is not breached and have to admit fault, if that zone is not adequately cordoned and safe.
And on the parents part, how can the parent not be with/beside the child, teaching her the importance of respecting the animal and keep a safe distance from the fencing and not cross the "buffer" zone (even if there is none !) and to further educate kids from, feeding with anything they can pluck from the bushes around, throwing objects like stones, sticks, mineral bottles , or provoking the animals with "animalistic howls"?? Come to think of it...I've witnessed even adults doing all of the above during my many periodic visits to the various zoo in this country ! You see most animals don't have fore-legs 5 feet long, to squeeze through the fencing and drag a kid to the fence before mauling her ! So unless this kid- minus the parents lack of supervision and education- ventured too close to the enclosure, she would have been spared the attack and trauma !
Maybe the Zoo Negara clowns should take a "pelancung sambil belajar" tour to the Taiping Zoo to see how well it is maintained ! But nooooo....no sir, they will be too arrogant and proud to admit their short-commings ! And to all parents before taking your kids to the zoo.... teach them to "respect" those beautiful creatures of God ! Remember education is your kids best tool.....that is ..... if you have anything intelligent to impart yourself !

When I say, I wanna puke at Malaysians, yes, I meant at the corrupt authorities who have no bloody conscience and have no damn reason to care for the working conditions entitled or specifically laid out in the foreign workers contract ! Respect for "rights" is just a "wool" used generously by the authorities in this country ! And I am so ashamed of us !
Why are both the Bangladesh and Malaysian authorities, allowing this to happen right here in our alleyways ? How much is a Bangladeshi's pride worth ? Do you think he doesn't deserve any dignity ? Put yourself in their shoes....errr ....slippers (if that's all they can ill afford !)
I say we drag these corrupt employers and their agents through the streets of the city with cards round their necks with the words "I have cheated and abused my foreign employees and I am proud of it because I'm a Malaysian " !
I am also told that for every 1 registered and legitimate agent there are 3 illegal "foreigner-employing" agents.....and that our "corrupt authorities" are fully aware of and may even be on their "pay-roll"........hmmm....which of course, like a ton of bricks, all will deny and demand from me for evidence and..... for which I won't be able to produce....so.....there !! But remember this word..."conscience"!
We have just "korban-ed" and it's the season of Christmas....... and I'm feeling "sick" reading these 2 articles.........and I'm redirecting all my "Christmas wishes" to the plight of these 300 + 1 men who are treated with contempt and subjected to live like dogs !!
Of course I know too of the few kind and generous Malaysians who have come out to feed and comfort these "alley-way" destitutes.......but is that alone enough ? Sheeesh ! Yes and I also know of the plight of many Malaysian families suffering in the east-coasts states of Malaysia because of the floods !
Merry Christmas to all you Malaysians and hope you can all have a "pleasant sleep" !!!

Damai Malaysia, supposedly an umbrella body comprising 395 NGOs representing 1.5 million Malaysians who have declared their stand against street demonstrations. It is made up of 75 Chinese-based NGOs and 20 associations which are Indian-based with the rest being Malay.
This Saiful fellow also said "This coalition was formed recently to oppose all forms of street demonstrations which disrupted peace in the country". He reminded the people that street demonstrations were not part of Malaysian culture..... so I guess he must really be pissed-off with the likes of these people involved, as suggested in the 3 pictures below too, right ? .......hmmmm !
Well folks...do you know something..anything..of this Damai Malaysia thinggy ? Seems like everybody's trying hard to "pleasing thy master" crap and you know something ...he was even given an audience to meet the busy PM !
"The group of about 20 people led by Damai chairman Mohd Saiful Adil Mohd Daud was not allowed to enter the Royal Malaysian Air Force Subang airbase but after waiting for the airbase authority to get back to them, they were finally allowed to go in to handed over to Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi a memorandum criticising the illegal street rallies.
Mohd Saiful Adil gave a brief speech before proceeding with five other representatives to hand over the memorandum. The group applauded before they left the place.The whole episode took less than 15 minutes."
