Why Is It Malaysia Has So Many Gates?

Why is it that Malaysia has so many gates?

I am not talking about the gate in front of your house. I am talking ala the infamous "water-gate" incident in the US. I am talking about scandals.

The "cow-gate"  scandal has enthralled Malaysians for several months now and there does not seem to be an end in sight to it with almost weekly or fourth nightly revelations of one misdeed after another.

Then we have what Malaysian netizens now term as "anak-gate" (Malay for "son-gate"). This scandal refers to the recent case of a federal minister's son's alleged assault of a condominium security personnel in which the police were quick to absolve him of any involvement.

It seems that the condominium's security video recording of the alleged incident confirms the alleged assault although police has now denied it. The same minister's son had also been absolved from any involvement in the death of a law student in another incident several years earlier.

The latest scandal to have emerged is the "timber-gate" involving the alleged granting of timber concessions in Sabah to a federal minister. The said minister has now denied the allegation.

We have many other "gates", oops, scandals. But I am just tired out with all this mention of gates and would just leave it to the readers who are interested to find out more for themselves by trawling the net.

But I must mention one other gate - the "Scorpene-gate" - wherein we had earlier bought two French submarines that cost several billion ringgit but that could not submerge or dive!

Even Pm Najib was alleged to have been involved in the "Scorpene-gate".

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim himself had on many occasions in the past alleged that Najib had, as the then defence minister responsible for the purchase of the submarines, improperly benefited financially from the transaction.

Yet to this date Najib has not sued Anwar, leading many Malaysians to wonder if indeed Najib was guilty.

The scandal even allegedly led to the death of a Mongolian beauty who it was believed had come to Malaysia to demand for her share of a commission allegedly promised her in her role in the submarines transaction.

Many are also still wondering about the relationship between Najib and the Mongolian beauty whom it was alleged was Najib's one time secret lover, although Najib denied ever knowing her.

P.S The father of the Mongolian beauty who is currently in Malaysia, said that he wants to meet Najib "father-to-father" to seek justice for the brutal murder of his daughter.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
