Thank You Hishamuddin: Malaysians Feel Safer Now Than Ever Before!

One thing that you have to give it to the Najib administration is that they have been able to reduce crime to a perception.

In the 4 years under Ah Jib Kor and his cousin the Home Minister, crime has transformed, according to their much vaunted KPIs (key performance indices), from a matter of statistics to one of perception.

Of course, statistics, the knowledgeable say, is really a question of input and interpretation - whose that is.

But if you stick to their KPIs on crime rate, it is much less a concern now than it had been before Ah Jib Kor & Co came into the scene like a shiny knight to the rescue.

Today, according to official statistics, Ah Chong, Muthu, Ali and our East Malaysian brothers and sisters have less to worry about crime than about their pathological perception.

All that Ah Chong, Muthu, Ali and our poor East Malaysian brothers and sisters need to do is to realise that statistics don't lie.

Our minds do.

Never mind that reports like this one pepper the news print almost on a daily basis now

Just after the incident of the senior customs officer, a JPJ runner was also reported gunned down in cold blood.

Then, the news of another man being shot at at a trafffic light like it was no body's business except, of course, the business of an increasing paranoid public.

So, while the official statistics show a decline in crime rate, the people's pathological perception registers an alarming increase.

Today, you are more likely to be a perception yourself rather than a crime victim, never mind that before others realise  this, you might have yourself been rendered perception incapacitated.

Still, we are all expected to be grateful for what Najib & Co have done to make Malaysia and Malaysians safer.

And to vote for their continued good work.

After all, what is perception compared to statistics?

You tell Najib & Co!

I have zero idea.

Only my pathological perception.

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...
