stupidity in malaysia – stinks to highest heaven!!

 photo StupidRemark.jpg

first of all, long ago, the fact is already there, staring at us – that the 'allah' word is used by christians in other countries and the 'allah' word was in existence before islam came into malaysia… BUT, oh well, stupid is as stupid does – malaysian muslim (some, not all) are claiming copyright to the 'allah' word, that is is for them only, that non muslim should not use it – how stupid can they get? oh wait… yes, they can get more stupid…

islamic body in malaysia raids non islamic body

 photo Mind-Your-Own-Damn-Business.jpg

ya allah! JAIS, who the bl***y hell gives you the right to raid the bible society of malaysia (BSM) and took away more than 300 of their bibles??

JAIS (jabatan agama islam selangor), or in english – the selangor islamic religious department – is just that, an islalmic religious department that has power over those of islam faith – the muslim, like how you become moral police to catch couples together or fine those who does not fast during the fasting month. your duties limited to anything to do with islam/muslim only… so why the hell did you exercise your powers on non muslim too? go and mind your own business, not ours!!

UPDATED ON 3 JAN. PLEASE SEE BELOW *

whoa! it looks like i haven't been blogging for 3 months! well, had been addicted to facebook everyday, that's why didn't blog. i hope this year i can start blogging again… at least a few times a month.

ok, long time no blog, now what to say? yes i'm here to put in a new year wish actually but since i'm here might as well say something. ok no particular topic/issue here but just whatever that comes into my mind, i'll say it.

on the personal side first. yes as i mentioned, facebook took me away from blogging. instead of posting all those current news/issues here, i posted them at facebook – it's easier and faster that way except i can't comment a lot. then, earlier (like in beginning of the year), i was also active writing for citizen journalist malaysia (CJMY) – so these 2 slowed down very much my blogging.

a decade of blogging

 photo decade.jpg

oh no! i missed out by one day to blog on my anniversary – and happened to be an important anniversary too – 10 years!!

that's right, i first started blogging in 2003, 27 sept. i thought it was 28 sept. so today is one late of my 10 years blog anniversary.

those were the days when i started blogging – blogging so regularly. first almost everyday, then 2, 3 times a week… then once a week or so. those days i blog a lot on current news. well my blog was a socio political blog those days. it still is of course but became quite rare. slowly i become very irregular… once a month or once a few months. it was about 3, 4 years back i had been very irregular, and 2 years back, had stop blogging for several months too. busy. and occupied with some other things like my citizen journalist work…. and facebook!

Beautiful, floral, lacy lingerie

i got to know of the Wacoal Salute – Reigning Supreme Showcase through Thomas Ng, my fellow citizen journalist. He had covered the event in KL few months ago, and since Wacoal Malaysia is coming to penang for the event, one of the Wacoal staff asked him to recommend Penang bloggers to attend the event and blog about it. 

Wacoal, as many are aware, is one of the famous name in the lingerie line. 'Salute' is one of its brand which is fully imported, with a touch of European style lingerie. Salute was specially produced for the Asian women's petite and slender fame in Japan, in 1983

To celebrate Salute's  30th anniversary, Wacoal hosted a party, known as 'Reigning Supreme' for invited guest on 6 September 2013, at 7.00pm, at Parkson Counter, Gurney Plaza, where it showcased it's Spring/Summer collection.

smoke gets in your eyes

… because it's BAACCCKKKKKKKKKK! the haze!

er…. not only your eyes of course but your mouth, your nose as well IF you don't wear a mask. er… but if you wear a mask, the mask only covers your mouth and nose, so the smoke will still get in your eyes. huh? so i guess if you don't want smoke in your eyes, how? wear sunglasses? or just glasses? of course, it might reduce the smoke get into your eyes but still not completely of course.  oh well, even with mask… or certain kind of mask, you can't really completely stop the smoke particles (esp. the tiny ones) from getting into your nose/mouth and thus your lungs.  read  from says malaysia to find out  for yourself whether masks will really protect you or what kind of mask is better.

the big news now in our country, malaysia, is the haze, caused by forest burning in indonesia. our neighbour, singapore was first hit bad with over 400 API reading but later on we were shocked when muar town in johor state, hit a skyhigh record of over 700 API! so much so that the town has to be declared emergency. thank god, at the time of writing now, it is very much lower already.

oh no! yesterday, it looks like the haze is blowing north now… to my hometown, where i am now – penang! HELP! it's not that bad yet. the API was about 80 reading in USM area, i notice from this website. do bookmark this website to go back to check API reading of various locations.

the FACTS about the ‘allah’ word.

allah_historyonly in malaysia!! the malaysian government and many other muslim had copyrighted the word 'allah'.  they said 'allah' belongs to muslim only and no other religions must use 'allah'. crap! loads of bullshit!! christians had been using 'allah' all along… even before the advent of islam! even now, the christian arabs are using 'allah'. 

in dec. 2010, the high court had ruled that the catholic weekly, herald can use the word 'allah', but then believe it or not, the federal government challenged the court's ruling. yes, that's right the umno government. see, those who voted for BN, you want this kind of government? if only PR take over putrajaya, i'm sure they will drop this case and allowed non muslim to use 'allah'.  

the federal government filed an appeal to set aside the court's decision on dec. 2010…. and later on, along with the government, 4 state islamic councils and 2 malays NGO had also joined in the fray and applied to be interveners.. read about it here in the edge.

Gross distortions in Malaysia’s voting system

Gross distortions in Malaysia's voting system

Ramesh Rajaratnam
8:23AM May 9, 2013
 

COMMENT The recently completed May 5 general election (GE13) revealed some interesting facts and figures based on the results as published by the Election Commission.

There have been, for a long time, much criticism of the ‘first past the post' (FPTP) election system we practise in Malaysia, because of what is inherent in this antiquated system.

The FPTP is one of the legacies of the British rule in Malaya and was based on giving all segments of the populace a voice in Parliament. Hence, constituency boundaries were drawn based on this segmental need for representation.

1malaysia thugs/gangsters/hooligans

hooligans… or in our local lingua '1malaysia samseng'.  plenty of them around during the 13th general election. documented proof in videos. why i mentioned 1malaysia? they were wearing the 1malaysia t-shirts!  we all know 1malaysia club is aligned to barisan nasional (BN), don't we. in another video, the hooligans were wearing  'i luv PM' t-shirt. gosh! supporters of the PM are hooligans? figures!! the PM did not speak out to condemn them too! just imagine if the hooligans were from PR, he and all the umnoputera would jumped up at once to condemn the hooligans.

the first  video here –  happened in pengkalan pegoh, ipoh on 3 may when a group of PR supporters were having a peaceful flash mob on the streets. suddenly, for no reason at all, a group of 1malaysia samseng (the video stated they are umno supporters)  came on bike and several of them started to attack the PR supporters who were holding flashcards.

penang PR win big in the GE13

sybasPG2

YAHOO!!! i'm so happy and damn proud because i'm a penangite.

that's right…. despite so many free food and free concerts that barisan nasional (BN) dished out to penangites, glad to know that penangites did not choose BN! of course there were also the money politics that had been going on and votes buying and gangsters in action…. oh and the so many many 1malaysia flags that can be seen here, there, everywhere, obstructing pedestrians, traffic, turning art-pieces ugly and so on. i guess penangites were very disgusted at the money politics and the many 1malaysia flags, that they decided to teach BN a lesson.
