Farewell 'The Tiger of Jelutong'

ordinary malaysian | Sunday, April 20, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
It is a measure of the man they called the 'The Tiger of Jelutong' that so many people from all walks of life turned up to give their last respects at his wake.

To those who would mock him even in his death, may their souls find peace.

Farewell Karpal Sing!

You may no longer be here, but we will always remember you.

Mocking Others Even In Death: How God-Like Is That?

ordinary malaysian | Saturday, April 19, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
Mankind are funny creatures.

We create a god, or allow others to create one for us.

Then we endow god with the attributes that we lack: love, compassion, mercy, capacity for forgiveness and omnipotence.

We create elaborate rituals and liturgies, as a means of worship.

And to make everything more impressive, we talk about heaven and hell.

Doing good, we rarely do, or care about.

God understands, god forgives.

Just prostrate and bow.

Say your prayers, do your ablutions.

We throw stones, and we draw blood.

All in the defence, and name of god.

To book a place for us in heaven.

And condemn the others to hell.

God understands, god forgives.

But have we forgotten?

We are puny.

And god is omnipotent.

Why would god need us to fight for him?

And kill in his name.

That we might attain paradise, and consign the others to hell, burning forever?

Have we forgotten?

God is, after all, loving, compassionate, merciful and forgiving.

Surely, god is not easily deceived?

Surely, you can't bribe god with bowing and prostrations, rituals and liturgies?

Surely, god cares more for deeds than form?

Surely, god is not fooled?

Karpal Singh: More Than A Giant!

ordinary malaysian | Thursday, April 17, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
I am in shock at the news of Karpal Singh's untimely demise in a road accident.

I am sure all of us Malaysians are.

You could not find one like him - a brilliant legal eagle and a fearless fighter for justice.

An indefatigable one.

He never gave up even when he was jailed, along with many others, in the now infamous 'Operation Lallang' to silence political dissent by the man who feared those smarter than himself.

Or even after he became wheel-chair bound following an earlier accident.

He was not called the 'Tiger of Jelutong' for nothing.

He was more than a giant among men.

We all mourn his passing.

Should Khalid Ibrahim Step Down?

ordinary malaysian | Thursday, April 17, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
Should Khalid Ibrahim step down as the Mentri Besar of Selangor?

The answer it seems, is not just blowing in the wind but more like written on the wall.

Of course, if you were Khalid Ibrahim, you would take blowing in the wind and not be Belshazzar.

Sorry Khalid, you have overstayed your welcome.

Most of us supported you because we just wanted a change from the years of DUMBno arrogance and mismanagement of Bolehland's richest state.

You have turned the state's finances around but what is 2 billion Ringgit surplus if all that we can be proud of is a surplus but little going on that is making the lives of the anak Selangor any the easier?

We still see roads with potholes here and there. Street lights dead on us when they should be alighted guiding our way and not being the cause of accidents.

What did you do the first thing after turning the state's finances around?

You gave yourself and the state exco and assembly persons hefty increases in your stipends and allowances.

What have you done to resolve the water woes that are making the lives of us Selangorians miserable?

We have to suffer the indignity of your baffling two days on and two days off water rationing exercise that really doesn't make any sense to us.

Why was it that after years of unsuccessfully trying to buy out the water concessionaires you were suddenly in a hurry to sign the MOU with the Federal Government only after you had been sued for the recovery of a loan by a bank?

And why was it done with such apparent alacrity and in such a secrecy that everybody seems to be in the dark about the terms?

And why are you so in the way of stepping down even though your own party has accused you of not showing the leadership that was expected of you in the 'Allah' and seizure of bibles issue?

It is well to know when you have overstayed your welcome and not behave like the DUMBno guys who think that power and position are their eternal birth rights.

Because the only rights of birth are the rights to life, food and shelter.

And the right to dignity.

A Government That Cannot Provide Potable Water Or Provides Potable Water With Constant Disruptions Or Rationing Should Resign

ordinary malaysian | Thursday, April 10, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
In these days and age, if a government cannot provide portable water for its citizens, it has failed miserably and has no right to rule.

Or if it does provide portable water with constant disruptions of service or rationing, it has not done any the better.

We are not talking about a desert country but a tropical one like Malaysia with rainfall throughout the year.

There is no excuse why if we manage properly, there should be any shortage of water.

The trouble in Bolehland is politics.

Politics enriches you if you play it right.

NEVER MIND THAT THE REST GO TO HELL SO LONG AS YOU GET TO LINE YOUR POCKETS. 

This has been so since the tenure of the man some would call the Malaysian Madhatter, when most everything that could, would be privatised or rather, "piratised" to cronies, families, the privileged or the politically connected.

Essentially, what piratisation means is that profits are privatised while losses are borne by the good citizens. A surefire way to do business and make big bucks.

Of course, all is done in the name of efficiency and reducing the government's burden.

In Selangor, where we have been suffering for a while now with the baffling, hard-to-understand two days on and two days off water rationing exercise, there are at least three or four companies involved with water treatment and another with its distribution.

Nobody cares to ensure that water management is up to par and supply is adequate to meet the needs of the state at all times.

Nobody cares to ensure that there is no, or at least only minimal, wastage of water. The leakage, it seems, comes to 30 plus % which is unacceptable.

Nobody cares about maintaining the old pipes or replacing them. All they care for is making fat profits and maximising their returns.

All that we are good at is blaming the consumers for wasting water.

One month or so of dry weather and we need to ration water?

What happened to the excess water when it rained like cats and dogs for most of the other months?

Before the water management and supply were privatised, there were less trouble and disruptions.

So much for the goodness of privatisation.

Oops, or shall I say piratisation?

Nine Reasons Why People Are Suspicious Of How We Handle Missing Flight MH370

ordinary malaysian | Sunday, April 06, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

  • We only informed Vietnam and China to cease searching in the South China Sea several days after we had known that Mas flight MH370 had made an about-turn from its intended destination to Beijing. Several days wasted that could be crucial to helping in the search for the missing plane.
  • The statement that four (or was it five?) who were supposed to board the ill-fated flight did not do so but had checked in their luggage which were then duly removed. That was subsequently contradicted by Mas itself who said that all passengers on the flight list had actually boarded.
  • The announcement that the last communication from the flight was 'Good night, all right' and that communication had been verified to have been made by the co-pilot. Now we are told that the last communication was really 'Good night Malaysian 3-7-0' and that they have no idea who said it.
  • The identity of the two Iranians. At first they were said to be positively Asian looking, then 'Balotelli type' and finally Iranians.
  • The pictures of the two mysterious Iranians. Different faces, but same trousers and same shadows. The explanation: in photo-copying, someone had placed one picture on top of the other. Huh? Really? The Theory of Relativity, by contrast, seems easier to comprehend.
  • The cargo manifest. At first, it was a cargo of mangosteen. But March is not mangosteen season! Then, when pressed, there was also a cargo of lithium ion batteries.
  • The reluctance to show the cargo manifest when Australia had asked for it to help them in the search for the missing plane.
  • The readiness of Najib to announce that Flight MH370 had ended in the southern Indian Ocean based on a private satellite entity's data and that 'beyond any reasonable doubt' there was no hope of any survivor, when not even a single debris or wreckage of the plane or any body had been found. His refusal to take questions from the press.
  • The attempts to shift the attention to the captain of the flight as a cause of the disaster. 
Can we then blame the Chinese families of the passengers on the ill-fated flight for feeling that they have been lied to? That we have been less than forthcoming, if not dishonest or, even worse, of hiding something?

Instead, we are quick to blame the Chinese families of being emotional and the Chinese press of instigating them?

And we are quick to threaten to sue the press for writing false reports.

Well, Malaysians are not surprised about the authorities' response. We have been bullied and brow-beaten all these years by the DUMBno led government to expect anything better.

Let's Roll With Shila!

ordinary malaysian | Wednesday, April 02, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips
As Hishamuddin is rolling in the deep trying to deflect the criticisms of the government's poor handing on the fate of Mas Flight MH370 to Beijing that went missing in the most baffling of manner, let's for a change roll with Shila Amzah.

We all do need some respite too from all the speculations surrounding the fate of MH370. Let's hope for some miracles. After all, the alternative is depressing.
