My Duties…

If Najib is playing with our money, his wife is playing with our senses…

Picked up from Patrick Teoh’s post titled ‘How Not to Make Video 101”:-

“….blah, blah, blah…I’m expected to accompany the Prime Minister to official functions…blah, blah, blah…my responsibility to get to know the rakyat by listening to plight and understand their problems…blah, blah, blah…”

RPK was right on this one from day 1…

Formula 1 for 1 Malaysia

After Samy Vellu and Khir Toyo, it is time for Najib to put his hands on public funds…

With this report from theStar, the multi billion PKFZ scandal may end up looking like peanuts:-

The 1Malaysia F1 Team, a joint venture between the Government and private sector, will participate in the F1 race beginning next year.

Politician’s Petty Cash

Things seems to be heating up for some seasoned politicians…

RPK has been talking a lot about Samy Vellu and how Indians got screwed in Malaysia Today – here and here (nothing fancy and much revolves around the well known Maika & MIED scandals). The “latest” evidence to surface is not so new – it was given to ACA way back in 1994 and they did nothing.…

Timeless Code of Conduct

Here’s something for the start of the week, something that everyone can embrace to (without the need to change religion)…

Conduct

(Image source: Stack Exchange)

Lies within the Vedas are the common-sense code of conduct recorded in the Upanishads, the final section of the Vedas. The code of conduct dictates 10 restraints, namely:-

The first restraint, Noninjury (ahimsa) – not injuring or harming others by thought, word, or deed

The second restraint, Truthfulness (Satya) – refraining from lying and betraying promises

The third restraint, Nonstealing (asteya) – neither stealing nor coveting nor entering into debt

The fourth restraint, Sexual Purity (brahmacharya) – divine conduct, controlling lust by remaining celibate when single leading to faithfulness in marriage

The fifth restraint, Patience (kshama) – restraining intolerance with people and impatience with circumstances

The sixth restraint, Steadfastness (dhriti) – overcoming non-perseverance, fear, indecision, inconstancy and changeableness

The seventh restraint, Compassion (daya) – conquering callous, cruel and insensitive feelings toward all beings

The eighth restraint, Honesty (arjava) – straightforwardness, renouncing deception and wrongdoing

The ninth restraint, Moderate Diet (mitahara) – neither eating too much nor consuming meat, fish, fowl or eggs.

Look who’s talking!

Khir said in his blog:-

Pada 2007 terpadat 146 kuil hindu berdaftar. Manakala kuil yang tidak berdaftar lebih 600 buah. Sejumlah 800 orang pengerusi kuil Hindu berdaftar dan tidak berdaftar di Selangor hadir dalam perjumpaan bersama saya di rawang pada Januari 2008. Jadi tentulah aneh YB Ronnie tidak berjumpa data-data ini

Translated “In 2007, there was about 146 temple registered whilst the one that was not registered was more than 600.…

We managed to catch the latest Tamil movie blockbuster, Kandasamy in Taiping’s latest cineplex last week or so and since the cineplex was quite new, the seats were comfortable and the sound system was outstanding. Movie poster source: Gaana

FAQ Updated

(You will never know when you can go missing in action and leave the blog to collect dust.)

I read this ‘concern’ in Visithra’s blog couple years ago (I can’t recall the date and title of the post but I think it was sometime when we had the last tsunami)…

For sometime now, I have been wondering on the same question – how my readers know that I am dead or have quit blogging abruptly?…

Travel Warning – Indonesia?

From Unspun’s blog:-

Another indication that the Indonesia-Malaysia spat is getting a bit out of hand is this incident yesterday (see clip from Jakarta Globe below), where ultra-nationalists armed with “sharpened bamboo sticks” stopped cars and motorcycles in Jakarta to look for Malaysians.
