Aha, Thank God!! - Barisan Candidates Are The Real Angels!

The average Malaysian Jane or Joe knows that corruption is endemic in the corridors of power.

And who walks in these hallowed grounds?

Not you or I.

The guys who walk these places are the Barisan fellows. And, of course, Umno is their taiko (big brother)

The average Malaysian Jane or Joe may not understand the methodology Global Financial Integrity (FGI) used in their finding that Malaysia stood as the country with the world's second largest illicit outflow of funds in 2010, at some 200 billion ringgit.

The estimated total illicit outflow of capital for 10 years is about a trillion - by no means a trifling sum for a small country like ours.

They might not quite grasp what is trade over pricing, but they have eyes to see and ears to hear.

And what they see and hear makes them ask what cows have to do with condos. Or submarines to do with C4 and Mongolian beauty.

Or what the whole thing had to do with SDs (statutory declarations) or carpet merchant.

Or why two guys would eliminate a Mongolian beauty, whom they had no relation with, nor knew, without reason or rhyme, or even a motive .

They are wondering why Najib has kept a deafening silence despite all the allegations and innuendos.

And why after Deepak's revelations and a court case, effectively the government is buying back land that belongs to it in the first place  and a company belonging to the merchant.

So, when Tengku Adnan claimed that all the potential Barisan election candidates for the 13th GE are free of corruption and other crimes, Malaysians are beginning to believe that cows and condos are not such implausible soul mates, after all.

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

Kluang RailCoffee
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...
