Only In Malaysia Or How Afraid Is Umno/Bn

I have always said that Malaysia is not known as BolehLand for nothing.

Everything is possible, but usually the negative, silly or downright unacceptable.

And just to confirm this observation, we have a minister who no sooner than he had been appointed the Home Minister then he somehow discovered that the country belonged to his grandfather, telling Malaysians who were not happy with the outcome of GE13 and the electoral system here, to just pack up and leave the country.

We may also be the only country in the world whose citizens can't move around freely with the anomalous situation of the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak.

Even members of Parliament are not exempted

We must be the laughing stock of the world. Najib would do well to stop making a fool of himself with his pledge to make Malaysia "the best democracy of the world"

BUT exactly what has the chief minster of Sabah got to be afraid of Nurul?

Exactly what have Najib, Umno/Bn got to be afraid of allowing a citizen of the country from visiting the East Malaysian state?

And one who is no less than a duly elected member of Parliament than Najib is?

Clearly it had nothing to do with Nurul being a security threat to Sabah.

One would have thought that foreigners indiscriminately being granted citizenship in exchange for votes as the ongoing RCI in Sabah on the issue reveals, would pose a greater security threat to the state than a duly elected MP on a visit to celebrate Pesta Kaamatan with Sabahans.

So it must have to do with politics and the fear that Umno/Bn would lose one of their two "fixed deposit" states were Nurul, and by extension, opposition MPs allowed to travel freely to Sabah.

That shows that UMNO/Bn, Najib and all the rest of the brood know that GE13 was a close call and that they can't afford to lose Sabah and Sarawak, otherwise that would mean their end.

But how dirty can that be, not to allow a citizen of the country to travel freely just because of political reasons having nothing to do with being a security threat?

You might as well ban political participation and just install yourselves the government in perpetuity.

That will save everyone the hassle and pretense of democracy, let alone one that is supposedly or soon "the best democracy in the world"

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...
