Is it Really Merdeka? Or, is it just a term? Here you have a bunch of extremist!

I was really upset with the most recent thing that had happened in the most developed state of Malaysia. Looks like only the state is developed. Most of the mindset as still trapped undeveloped, not even grown an inch! even peanuts are bigger.

This was not reported on The Star at all. Probably tomorrow or something but i can't believe that the newspaper could be so lembap. I thought they should be the most efficient among all?

Anyways... this is the shit head news.

Quoted from Malaysian Insider: Click Here for original article

Protesters threaten bloodshed over Hindu temple

By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal

SHAH ALAM, Aug 28 — A group of Malay-Muslim protesters claiming to be residents of Section 23 have threatened bloodshed unless the state government stopped the construction of a Hindu Temple.

Amid chants of "Allahuakbar," the group also left the severed head of a cow at the entrance of the State Secretariat here as a warning to Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

The "residents" said that the construction of a Hindu temple in a 90 per cent Malay- Muslim neighbourhood was insensitive because activities there would disrupt their lives.

They claimed that the "noise" from the temple would disturb their own praying, and that they would not be able to function properly as Muslims.

The group of 50 over protestors marched shortly after Friday prayers from the Shah Alam State mosque to the State Secretariat.

“I challenge YB Khalid, YB Rodziah and Xavier Jeyakumar to go on with the temple construction. I guarantee bloodshed and racial tension will happen if this goes on, and the state will be held responsible,” shouted Ibrahim Haji Sabri amid strong chants of “Allahu Akbar!”

Ibrahim identified himself as the Deputy Chairman of the Resident’s Committee against the building of the temple in S23 here, which is perceived by some as being a Muslim majority area.

He told the press that the state should move the temple to Section 22 as ‘originally planned’, and also labelled Khalid a “traitor to the Malay race and Islam”.

It is understood that the protest is an immediate reaction towards the Selangor MB’s visit to the Hindu temple site yesterday, an act seen by the "residents" as disrespectful to the Muslims of the community.

A symbol of objection?... The cow's head being paraded by the protestors in their march. - Picture by Choo Choy May

Mohd. Zurit Bin Ramli, who claims to be the secretary of the "Coalition of Malaysian NGOs" echoed Ibrahim’s stand on the matter, saying that it was irresponsible on the part of the state government to approve the construction as there was apparently a “90 per cent” majority Muslim population in Section 23.

“With a temple on our residential area, we cannot function properly as Muslims. The temple will disrupt our daily activities like prayers in the Surau. We cannot concentrate with the sounds coming from the temple,” stated Zurit.

When asked whether members of the protest were affiliated with any organisations or movements, Ibrahim claimed that the people present today were members of PAS, PKR as well as Umno who are “united in the name of Islam and the Malay spirit.”

The state government was also accused of lying to the people of Selangor.

The Chairman of the Residents Committee, Mahyuddin Manaf excitedly proclaimed that the committee would uncover “the lies” and find proof of the state’s misconduct.

“Khalid Ibrahim wears a mask of a Muslim, but in truth he is a liberal. PAS stands to lose out as a result. I voted for PAS as well as Khalid in the past elections,” Mahyuddin claimed.

The issue first cropped up when the Selangor government proposed that the Sri Mariamman temple be relocated from Section 19 to Section 23.




Kidding me????? This is as good as throwing a Pig's head in front of their face! and they calling the hindu's insensitive? CRAZY EXTREMIST!

Quoted from the article from Malaysian Insider :

The "residents" said that the construction of a Hindu temple in a 90 per cent Malay- Muslim neighbourhood was insensitive because activities there would disrupt their lives.

They claimed that the "noise" from the temple would disturb their own praying, and that they would not be able to function properly as Muslims.

How funny the 'noise' could actually disturb them.. when.. the fact is that.. whenver they pray... the whole world knows coz it's announce and prayed on a loud speaker!!! does any of the other races ever complained about it? have any other races ever said that it distubed our prayers? LOL! FUNNY. HAHA.

And, the best part of it all. NO police were at sight. None of them were there or probably not bothered to arrest any of them there. When some other people are just doing some peaceful demonstration, they get sprayed tear gas, bla bla and get arrested! Bringing a Cow's head to the state secretarial department that insulted the Hindus and also had created a racial tension in Malaysia, they are not arrested.

As i said in earlier posts, news in malaysia are getting funnier and funnier day by day.

All the best Malaysia.

PAS Youth threatens to rock MLTR’s act, too

By JO TEH


PETALING JAYA: Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR) is the latest international act to have its concert condemned by PAS Youth.

The movement issued a strong protest to the Cabinet’s decision in approving the concert by the Danish band at Genting Highlands on Sept 5.

Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi

Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi, in a press statement yesterday, said his party would not hesitate in mobilising its members to prevent the concert from happening if the performance was not stopped.

He said said the Cabinet’s ap- proval was “an insult to all Muslims in the country.”

The movement had also protested previous gigs by Beyonce, Avril Lavigne and Gwen Stefani.

Meanwhile, Star Planet, the organiser of Michael Learns to Rock show here, denies allegation the concert violated the dignity of Muslims.

Its chief operating officer, Carmen Liew, said the show would go on as scheduled.

“The green light was given when we approached the authorities. We are not violating any guidelines. In fact, we have abided by Central Agency for Application for Filming and Performance by Foreign Artistes (Puspal) rules that also provides for guidelines on concerts to be held during the fasting month,” she said.

According to Puspal, concerts to be held during the fasting month must in a ‘closed’ venue.

“Genting Highlands is considered as a ‘closed’ venue. We have not done anything wrong,” said Liew.

Touted as a strong comeback for the band, the “Eternity Tour 2009” world tour concert will showcase old and new tunes

Teoh Beng Hock's Inquest.

It's getting to my nerves.

First, i did not care much about political issues and arena in malaysia. Now, i'm all worked up.

These bast*rds will just let this pass tru them and let it fade. isn't that all that's happening in malaysia? first altantuya, now teoh beng hock?

To start, this poor guy is about to get married with his fiancee. How on earth would he had even thought about commiting suicide???

When he said he did not as this was not needed in the case, Gobind asked: “So, you couldn’t tell if his shoes were too loose for him as you didn’t measure his feet. In this particular case the shoe was found far away from the body. How far was it?

(Teohs right shoe was off his feet when his remains were found.)

“I didn’t measure,” Dr Khairul Azman, who is a consultant pathologist with Klang Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital, said.

Gobind: It’s good to measure isn’t it? You cannot tell us how the shoe got there. You are in no position to tell us!

Dr Khairul Azman: It could have come off when he fell.

Gobind then said that logically, if the shoe was tight, this would not have happened.

When he asked if there was a possibility that Teoh was thrown out first and then the shoe, Dr Khairul Azman replied: “Yes, there is a possibility.”

Gobind: In that case, it is indicative of a homicide. Did you address that possibility?

Dr Khairul Azman: Yes, there is a possibility.

Gobind: Did you test the shoe for fingerprints? Dr Khairul Azman: No

Gobind: Is it significant?

Dr Khairul Azman: Yes

Gobind: Why didn’t you do it?

Dr Khairul Azman: I expected the police to do it.

Gobind: But you didn’t get them to do it because it would have indicated a homicide. Were you covering it up?

Dr Khairul Azman: No, I am not covering up.

- quote from The Star Online

Then, it's the finger prints that do not match.

Then, it's the DNA that do not match!

And, OH! did i mention that they surprisingly DO NOT HAVE A CCTV on the 14th floor and 5th floor of Plaza Masalam??? but there are CCTV on any of the other floors?

It's so fucking impossible! unless these are all coverups and the trails are being washed off? wtf.

Best part of it all, the fucking chemist or watever did not even record the finger prints that was found on the window that he so called 'committed suicide' because it was incomplete???? these are all possible leads to to a possible homicide! fuckers!

Gobind: Is this mentioned in the report?

Insp Mazli: If the fingerprints are negative we don’t write it down.

Gobind then asked: “So, you can come to court and say anything about fingerprints and we can’t verify?”

Insp Mazli replied there was nothing if there were no fingerprints.

When Insp Mazli said that fingerprints were left when there was sweat from a person’s sweat cells, Gobind asked him if DNA samples could be obtained from these.

“The dusting powder will destroy the DNA and if swabbing is done before dusting, the fingerprint lines would be destroyed,” said Insp Mazli.

- quoted from The Star Online

How much planned are these things? OMG!

And now, there is a mystery letter that was sent by an MACC official that reached Gobind Deo's hands. Claiming the dos of a high official of MACC, Hishammudin Bin Hashim which I think it must not be looked upon lightly! It might not be signed off by anybody, but the contains are printed on a MACC letterhead! it is already a small sneak peak that this person who have written the letter are in the insides of MACC. How can a tom dick or harry are able to get the letter head? what? sneak himself into the buildings of macc at this moment in time and steal one letter head out and print the letter?

Do u even think that it is possible that the official who had written the letter would want his identity not disclosed as these could poise harm to him and his family??? Probably the reason on why it isnt signed off by a certain somebody!

This is the link to the letter .

I really do hope and pray that the death of Teoh Beng Hock would not be invain. The people that's involved in the murder in search of their greed of power and money would be taken to justice and be punished in the worst ever possible punishment.

Disgusted and annoyed!


Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards 2009!

AWESOME event! :)


Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards
(APEA) is held by Enterprise Asia. It is to honour and recognize business leaders who have shown outstanding performance in developing business within the region.

And, tonight, I personally, proudly, met Tan Sri Dato' Sri Dr. Yeoh Tiong Lay from YTL Corporation n' shook hands with him! lol. damn proud man. lol. but no camera, so no picture :(

Incase to some people who actually do not know who Yeoh Tiong Lay is, please click on the link. And his son, Francis Yeoh, took over and became the Managing Director in 1988.

He was our Lifetime Achievement Awards winner for 2009.

All of the entrepreneurs were really warm and friendly. Unlike alot of those nasty, penny-less people that I've met along my line of job.

The aura that you get when you meet them is different! Their confidence shines through them and hits you on the face. I am happy to be apart of APEA 2009.

Meeting these successful entrepreneurs in one night is not enough for me to even know them all. They come from various age. From 20+ to 80+ years old. One similarity, all of them are successful confident entrepreneurs.



Very aspiring.

Couch Surfing in the news!

Sedihnya. The gathering yang i never go pulak reporters came :( Thus, my muka not on the news :(

Life: Have couch, will travel (New Straits Times)
2009/08/18
SANTHA OORJITHAM
An online community of like-minded travellers is hosting visitors for a night or two. SANTHA OORJITHAM finds out how couchsurfing has taken off in Malaysia — and around the world.
“SOFA away! Doesn’t anyone stay in one place anymore?” With apologies to Carole King, twenty-somethings today are putting a new spin on the singer-composer’s Seventies hit. A Tunisian computer science teacher is sleeping on the couch of his host in Shah Alam. A British lawyer has arranged to sleep on a couch in Tokyo. A Malaysian photo researcher was hosted by two writers in Mexico City.



After reading all the positive references, Adida Abdullah (right) agreed to provide a couch to German student Rahel Clormann.

They are among over 1.3 million members of Couchsurfing Group, which claims to be the world’s largest hospitality exchange network. The free, Internet-based project was just a gleam in the eye of American traveller Casey Fenton back in the year 2000.
After finding a cheap flight from Boston to Iceland, he randomly emailed 1,500 students from the University of Iceland asking for a place to stay.
More than 50 offered to host him. On the flight home, he began to conceptualise couchsurfing, which was formally launched on New Year’s Day 2004. Its mission: “Participate in creating a better world, one couch at a time.”
“Couchsurfing connects people currently traveling in new areas with regular travelers who are at home and have space to sleep others — be it on a spare mattress, bed, couch or floor space,” explained Jesse Gunsch, a university student in Arizona, United States, who surfed at the home of two Argentinian computer programmers in London last year.
In Malaysia, over 4,000 are registered with Couchsurfing Malaysia Group. Their average age: 29. Not everyone has a spare couch. Those who can’t host visitors offer to meet for a teh tarik or to show them around town. Membership is free but those who want their account verified have to make a donation of at least US$20 (RM70) with their credit cards. A prospective member provides his full name and postal address.

Couchsurfing Group then sends him a postcard with his ID. Members vouch for both hosts and surfers through references on the site (www.couchsurfing.org).
Before Adida Abdullah agreed to host German student Rahel, she read through all the references (which were positive) and contacted some of them for confirmation. Surfers gather regularly in the 231 countries linked by the group.
In Kuala Lumpur, for example, members meet almost every week, said student Sasha Leong over dinner at a mamak restaurant in Bukit Bintang which attracted members from New Zealand, Britain, Tunisia, Portugal, Latvia, India and Finland.
Members stress that one of the main goals is for the host and surfer to spend time with each other and learn more about each other’s culture. “Some hosts want you to spend a minimum of two nights, because they say one night is not enough to get to know you,” said the Tunisian teacher, Adel Kassah.
Earlier this year, he landed in Istanbul where he spent five nights with his Turkish host before heading to couches in Ankara, Kayseri and Batman. His host enjoyed his company so much that he invited Adel for another four nights on his return.
Photo researcher Lim Paik Yin couldn’t speak a word of Spanish when she landed in Mexico City. If she hadn’t been hosted by fellow surfers, she admitted, “I would have eaten bread and cheese the whole time.” The only plans she had made were to see the Frida Kahlo museum: “For the rest, I fell in with my hosts’ plans. I walked around with them, ate what they ate, talked to them and got to know them.”
Couchsurfers also claim their hosts show them sights off the beaten track. When Leong couchsurfed in Vienna in February this year, her host took her to a “Balkan Party” of Albanians celebrating the first anniversary of Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia. The Group provides pointers on being a good host and a good guest — as well as safety tips on how to vet potential hosts and surfers, how to meet (at a cafĂ©, for example, where you can talk first to see if you are comfortable with it) and extra precautions such as emailing the person’s name, address and photograph to a friend.
Voluntary ambassador Mohd Munawar Nurul Amin (one of 12 for Malaysia) adds that moderators remove offensive remarks from the site and will terminate a member’s account “if it is used for politics, aggressive personal attacks, racism or wrongdoing such as stealing, making a business out of couchsurfing or sexual offences”.
In the past two years, he has removed seven members from the group, of whom three were Malaysians, for such offences. (They were all hosts.) But, he stressed, 99 per cent of the experiences were positive. “Like most meet-ups arranged online, it’s as safe as you make it,” added Gunsch.
Women traveling alone should be careful and find other women to stay with, the student advised. “Otherwise it’s really mostly a matter of communicating with your hosts and getting to know them a bit beforehand.”
Leong has met surfers who became members or attended get-togethers for the wrong reasons — to pick up dates or make conquests. But she has had only good experiences surfing with female hosts in Vienna and Frankfurt, and hosting members from Germany and Australia at her parents’ home. And as a cheap way to travel, it’s hard to beat. Her bill for three weeks in Europe was 500 Euros (RM2,500).

Foreign and local couchsurfers gather for a meal in Bukit Bintang.


ierrr. sedih sial :(

Our Getaway :)

We celebrated our 1-year-anniversary in Krabi. :) *thanx yang!* *grins*

We were on a 5 days, 4 nights trip to Krabi. Yang knew i wanted to go and he took me there! :D

We arrived on the 9th August 2009 at Krabi Intl Airport. We took a taxi to Krabi town for THB500(i tink). Bus was only THB150. But, we've got no idea which part of krabi would they campak us. so we ended up taking taxi. hehe. We stayed our first night in Krabi town, in City Hotel. It was a well maintained hotel, just a lil' old. but location wise, it's really good in krabi town. but don't bother going to krabi town coz there's nothing much to do there except the pasar malam on weekends, fri-sunday. Other than that, dont bother.

And we lost our 100+ first set of photos when the dingdong camera decided to kong out on me. Suddenly I off and on the camera, states there No pic. i was like WTF!!!! on off on off also NO PIC! OMG. shit.

our 2nd day, we took a taxi to Ao Nang and paid like THB400 for the short ride =/ We arrived in AoNang Villa and am very much impressed with the beautiful sea frontage hotel :) Our first day in Ao Nang was literally jalan-jalan with some shopping and lepaking at the beach and enjoying our sunset. :) oh, and pool too. :) Our hotel had 2 pools! Dolphin & Coral!



<3

the beach in front of Ao Nang Villa



there were like 30 massage parlours! and the number 7 lady came to us and gimme the packet of pineapple as a way to "book" their customers.

Our hotel



our banana chocolate pancake :D


local street food!

the very entangled and complicated wire system in krabi.



on our 3rd day, all we did was chill n relax. we headed out for breakfast in the morning and den walk along Ao Nang and did some shopping. Next, we went back to hotel and changed into our beach attire. Lepaked at Ao Nang beach. Played and jumped to the waves of the sea. Jason was having sooo much fun jumping in the waves while i slept like A LOG while sun-tanning. sedap. :) then we headed back to the hotel for a dip in the pool and some swimming training for the next day's island hopping :)


Our first sunset together :)


the super kao damn syok massage till i fall asleep drooling on the pillow :p


my so called creative shot :p



That's when we met Kevin and Mimi. We went for dinner together and went to Irish Rover(highly recommended) for a cup of ice cool beer. :) I had my glass of Kilkenny and Jason had his pint of Kilkenny. Then we had our free BBQ and we had 2 games of pool :)








Our 4th day was my long waiting island hopping day! I can't wait to re-visit the beautiful island with crystal clear water and the long stretch of white sandy beaches! Was there about 3 years ago when i visited Phuket. :) It's beautiful. So beautiful, i can't explain in words. U must go and see by yourself. :)

And, I finally got rid of my fear of water and got into the sea for snorkelling ALL BY MYSELF! :D yay-ness! i first snorkelled in an open sea during our 1st snorkel. was afraid in the beginning and manage to get hold of myself and not panic :) 2nd was in Loh Samah bay snorkel and 3rd was in bamboo island beach snorkel in which i managed to convince jason to enter the water where he can't touch the sand with his legs! :D and he snorkeled and snorkelled and snorkelled and forgot bout me. :/

Then when we return to Ao Nang at bout 5pm, to our Hotel, just to find out that our bathroom sink pipe burst. :/ took bout an hour before we could do anything. at about 630pm we went to rent a bike to tour the island. :) we got a Honda Airblade. And, that night, we had our anniversary dinner in La Luna having some cheese+ham pizza in my new greeny forever 21 dress :)


our honda air blade bike.


my forever 21 dress :) *thanx yang*


our anniversary dinner.




After dinner, we went and lit this thing (above) with our wishes on it and flew it to the sky :)



Next day was our final day in Krabi. :( we got up real early just to have more time to tour the island on the bike and ended up in gastropod. don't ask me what's that. lol. some claystone bed thingy.


gastropod.







And, the next thing we know, we're on our way back to Krabi Intl Airport again to board our flight to KL. And I notice this couple in front of us queueing in front of us in the airport seem familiar. then i went like.. "errr.. KAREN?" she turned and look! omg! IT'S KAREN! lol. what a small world :)

Back to Old KL. :)

End of my beautiful getaway. :)
