Nah! You want Keris? I give you KERIS!

Nah! You want Keris? I give you KERIS!

by Patrick Teoh

Poor Najib. He gets it almost everyday doesn't he? It's either being contradicted by his deputy and almost everybody else. Or he's being warned.

Today, he is being WARNED! Yes the capitals are intentional because this latest warning comes from no less than former prime minister, Mahathir Mohamed.

Don't ignore Perkasa (The Star)

The former PM says that Najib should listen to views expressed by Perkasa because it is a "mouthpiece" of the Malay community.

Really? So, if you are Malay and don't agree with what Perkasa is doing you better make your voices heard. NOW!

This next bit from Dr. M is quite scary. He said that Najib must listen to their(Perkasa's I presume) view "whether it is sane or insane".

And this is the man who was our Prime Minister for 22 years! Now I feel insanely stupid.

Mahathir also said “The Government is listening to the grouses of other communities and it should also listen to the grouses of the Malays’’.

Hello uncle! When has the Malaysian government NOT been listening to the grouses of the Malays and looking after them? Tell me. Which period of our 50+ years as an independent nation? Got meh? I think it is just people like you and Perkasa who are insisting that fiction be created to cover up history.

"Dr Mahathir said sensitive religious and racial issues should be discussed behind closed doors for the sake of stability."

I tell you ah, politicians lie so often that they totally forget what they are saying. This man is speechifying about Malay rights and all and he tells us that racial issues should be discussed behind closed doors for the sake of stability?

TNB to sue WWF over Earth Hour

These jokers complain that some people responded and turned off the lights for 1 hour. Yet they say nothing of the hours upon hours practically every day that they have blackouts throughout Sabah.

During Perth's recent storm which was the worst in 50 years which resulted in some power outage, but that was of course not the fault of the power company, each household and business that had experienced a power outage of 12 hours or more could claim A$80 (RM250).

On the other hand, the WWF Earth Hour was supported by all and sundry, including the power company there. How much greed do these UMNO goons need to possess? They think they are smart. But, they are indeed unbelievably stupid!

TNB to sue WWF over Earth Hour
Jump to Comments

KUALA LUMPUR — Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Malaysia’s premier energy provider today announced that they were taking legal action against the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) for organising the Earth Hour, a global movement that makes a stand against climate change by turning off all non-essential lights and electrical equipment for an hour every year.

In a Press conference, TNB president and CEO Dato’ Sri Che Khalib Mohd Noh said that the annual worldwide symbolic gesture, which this year would be observed this Saturday at 8.30pm, is nothing more than an ‘arrogant and thoughtless viral movement’ aimed to hurt power companies such as TNB.

CHE KHALIB: These people are inconsiderate
“Obviously these green-minded fellows think they’re really cute, organising such an irresponsible campaign,” said Che Khalib angrily. “They say ‘turn off your lights for an hour’ and people do. I bet that really makes them feel all powerful.

“What these western colonialists fail to grasp is how such drastic action affects the poor companies like us. One hour of unused electricity means an hour of wastage for TNB. Did you know that last year’s Earth Hour costed us millions in unrealised revenue?” asked Che Khalib, seething.

“How do you think that affected our production? We couldn’t exactly turn off our power plants just because a large number of Malaysians turn off their lights at the same time. So imagine all that wasted energy.

“This year, we expect even more people to fall for this global con-job,” added Che Khalib. “So there’ll be more lights turned off. KL alone would be engulfed in darkness. Yes, sure, it may seem fun to some, running around in complete darkness. But that also means TNB would get less money. Tell me, what am I supposed to say to the kids of this electrical technician when we can’t give bonus this year?” asked Che Khalib, as he pointed to a TNB staff manning the lights for the Press conference.

He added, “In light of such inconsiderate actions by these tree huggers, TNB has no choice but to take legal action against the Earth Hour organisers, WWF. We’ll wait for our accountants to come back with the loss figure after this year’s Earth Hour, and we plan to sue them for that same amount. We may even add a hundred million ringgit or so, to teach them a lesson.”

Che Khalib also reminded Malaysians to ignore the Earth Hour, calling it a ‘cultural invasion, a concerted assault by extreme liberal forces aimed to destabilise poorer nations’.

“We are Malaysians, and we should be proud of our lights. Every night we should go out and see the beautiful sparkling lights in our city skylines. Don’t be ashamed of the lights,” said Che Khalib, as he unveiled a set of pictures showing the Petronas Twin Towers and the surrounding buildings consequently going dark during last year’s Earth Hour.

DARK TIMES: KLCC buildings going dark last year

“See this? See how ugly, gloomy and dark the last picture is? God knows how many people tripped over things and hurt themselves in the complete darkness, not to mention the number of bad people going around doing naughty things, knowing the authorities could not see them.

“Let’s reverse the order of these pictures this year, and fight for the rights to our lights,” continued Che Khalib. “Let’s unite as 1Malaysia, and tell these green terrorists that we will not go dark! We will not switch off! Let’s tell them that we love our lights!

“POWERRR… EXTREME!” he screamed, as powerful clusters of foglamps flooded the conference room with ultra-bright and hot light, temporarily blinding everyone present, and signalling the end of the Press conference.

The Ant and The Grasshopper!

From Malaysian Mirror


An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the ant was warm, comfortable and had no shortage of food.

The grasshopper had no proper shelter, no stored food, and couldn't find anything to eat from the snow-covered ground. So it died and the story ended.

Moral of the story: Be responsible for yourself!


An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the shivering grasshopper called a press conference and demanded to know why the ant should be warm and well fed while he was cold and starving.

TV1, TV2 & TV3 showed up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper alongside to a video clip of the ant in his comfortable home with a table full of food.

The majority of the Malaysian parliamentarians were stunned by the sharp contrast. How could this poor grasshopper be allowed to suffer?

Khairy staged a demonstration in front of the ant's nest.

Nazri went on a hunger strike along with other grasshoppers demanding that they be relocated to warmer climate area during winter.

The Malaysian Government immediately passed a law forbidding all ants from working hard in the summer so as to bring about equality of poverty between ants and grasshoppers.

Muhyiddin increased 'More Special Reservations' for grasshoppers in educational institutions & in government services..

The ant was fined for failing to share 30% of his food with the grasshopper. The PM announced that this was part of the NEP. No ant should question it. (Don't forget, Tax Audits were introduced and targeted at certain individuals who were eventually penalised heavily for not contributing enough to the well-being of the grasshoppers).

Many years later...

Some ants migrated to the US and other countries, and set up multi-billion dollar companies there.

Hundreds of grasshoppers still died of starvation despite the 'More Special Reservations'.

Losing significant number of hard working ants and free loading the grasshoppers, Malaysia remained a developing country, despite its abundant natural resources.

All because the remaining ANTS were still doing their work ...

Latest finding showed that almost all the grasshoppers in the political arena and civil service were hoarding corrupt wealth which they refused to share with fellow grasshoppers.

MORAL OF THE STORY: You decide in the 13th general election.

This was published because we believe that you are an ant – not a grasshopper! Make sure that you pass this on to other ants. Don't bother alerting any grasshoppers because they wouldn't understand it, anyway.

4.4 million unregistered Malaysian voters!

"Some 28 per cent of eligible voters – or 4.39 million Malaysians over the age of 21 – have yet to register as voters as of the end of last year, Election Commission (EC) Deputy Chairman Datuk Wira Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said.

Of the total, Selangor has the highest number at 787,000, followed by Johor (605,000), Perak (526,000) and Sarawak (473,000)."

Do Malaysians deserve the government they are getting or what?! Why don' they even register to be voters to determine their own future and those of their children?

夢醒時分 Time to Wake Up from the Dream!

Good article - published in Sin Chew Jit Poh column (English translation is below)

鄭丁賢 • 夢醒時分




去了中國大陸開工廠;王子不做工程師,移民到澳洲開小食檔;阿風離開本地大學,去香港做講師;青蛙去了台灣,開展事業第二春;還有的到了美國、 英國,唔,還有去印尼的……。














Time to Wake Up from the Dream!

I wonder if you feel the same as me, all of a sudden I realised friends and relatives around me seems to get less and less.

Those years when the New Year drew near, all sorts of gathering appointments almost completely filled the diaries, but this year seems so quiet.

Even in normal time, phone calls become less and less, face to face meet up also become much less.

Perhaps, everybody is busy with their own things, or perhaps, nowadays people prefer just to stay in.

However, it is not entirely like this, thinking further, actually old friends and relatives are not around anymore. God bless, they are still alive and well, they just left the country, Malaysia.

They have gone to China to set up factories; ah Wang quit his engineer job and migrated to Australia to set up his little food store business, ah Fong left the local University and went to Hong Kong as a lecturer. 'Frog' went to Taiwan to pursue his second career life.

Others went to America, England, even Indonesia...

At first, I thought these are individual cases, but gradually, people around me realized the same, these are not individual cases but a general symptoms of our society. They are not small numbers but the pretty big numbers indeed.

The Department of Foreign Affairs released the figures earlier, it confirmed that the situation is real.

From March 2008 through to September 2009, a total of 300,000 Malaysians migrated to other Countries, among them 200,000 left between Jan - Aug 2009. (in 8 months)

Cumulatively, 2 million Malaysians have migrated; this figure is close to the number of Indonesian workers in Malaysia today.

The difference being, those migrated are mostly professionals and middle class people.

They have many reasons to leave: pursue career development, for the future of their children, in search of better life and environment... In one sentence, they all lost hope in Malaysia.

50 years ago people said: Malaysia is very good, better than Hong Kong and even Japan.

30 years ago people said: Malaysia is not bad, comparable to South Korea and Taiwan. (No mention of Hong Kong and Japan any more).

20 years ago people said: Malaysia can do la, at least better than China and Thailand (Cannot compare with Taiwan and Korea lah).

10 years ago people said: No matter how bad Malaysia is, cannot be worse than Vietnam and Indonesia. (China is already in a different category).

Today, the economic growth rate of Vietnam and Indonesia already far exceeded Malaysia’s. Social activity and intellectual development of these Country are also better, the gap between us and them is closing up.

Why worry? there are still the Philippines, Cambodia and Myanmar behind us.

However, an economist who recently surveyed the Philippines thinks that in 20 years' time, Malaysia can replace Philippines to become the World exporter of Malaysian maids.

Over half a century, Malaysians live in this big old imperial housing complex, closed up and survived on properties left behind by their ancestors; continue to consume up social resources, wasteful, and drive away talents; they never talk
about competitiveness, totally neglect productivity, and hate meritocracy.

When the Asia economic storm hit in 1997, Malaysia closed its doors, thinking we beautifully avoided a disaster, they even think of themselves as geniuses, being able to handle the situation so well.

However, just look at other Countries in our neighbourhood, they stand up, face the storm, and walk out of the storm.

They overhaul the system, improve the processes and march forward, they moved up to a new level. And Malaysia, still "marking time", walking on the same spot.

Dear Malaysia, it's time to wake up! We are already very very late now!
