(The potential flashpoint for the next regional war is in the South China Sea where in recent years, the Chinese Government has been very aggressively building naval bases complete with missile launch silos, gun emplacements, radar stations, communications towers, runways for heavy bombers and helipads.

Recently the Chinese Government sent 8 doctors to assist our Ministry of Health on the war to contain and improve the recovery from COVID-19 infections.… [Click to read the rest] “National Security 2020: Recent Intrusion of Chinese ships in Malaysian Waters”

Religion 101: Hudud – Can We Prioritise on Real Issues?

Hudud

(Which is more critical and urgent to the rakyat in Kelantan – tabling of a new Islamic law that overlaps & duplicates the existing convention laws or reconstruction of homes & lives of people involved in the worst natural disaster that the country have seen? It is not an issue of religion or sedition but rather an issue of priorities.[Click to read the rest] “Religion 101: Hudud – Can We Prioritise on Real Issues?”

National Security 2011: Is This A Real End of ISA?

ISA Internal Security Act Law Malaysia

(Draconian laws like ISA may finally end but the question is why now and why not in 2009 or in 2010? Any law that allows the Government to hold anyone without any trials, no recourse to the courts and at the sole discretion of certain politicians in power is dangerous, unfair and allows for gross abuse.[Click to read the rest] “National Security 2011: Is This A Real End of ISA?”

Email for Everyone?

UPDATE 1: Some of the questions raised has been answered in this FAQ by Tricubes Bhd but still, it is a real wonder why spend so much on something is available for free even it involves sensitive information

UPDATE 2: 05.10.2011 – Loss-making Tricubes Bhd has managed to sign up only 3,000 users for the free web-based myemail.my… [Click to read the rest] “Email for Everyone?”

1Malaysia Banned

(Before 2008, BN was beyond acceptable level of arrogance and egoism. After 2008, PR provided some hope but it simply gets too political instead of getting the job done for the benefit of the people. Hopefully the “Third Force” changes the whole political landscape for the better. Image source: The People’s Parliament)

Here is one good reason why we need better candidates for the next general election…

Selangor has banned advertisements on billboards that feature the 1Malaysia logo.

Snippets – 6 December 2010

A quickie before the holidays…

Khir Toyo Charged with Corruption

Ha, some interesting development with fishing in the “big fish” by the MACC

(Khir claims that this whole piece of property only valued RM3.5 million when others claims that it is about RM24 million. What do you think? Image source: TheStar)

The hands of the law could have done it better (like that costly RM1.8 million trip to Disneyland and the missing RM9.9 million Balkis fiasco) but I guess something is better than nothing…

The Star reports:-

Former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has been charged with accepting two land lots for RM3.5mil when the said lots were bought by Ditamas Sdn Bhd director Shamsuddin Haryoni for RM6.5mil.

Advertisement 101: Ridiculous 1Malaysia Deepavali Ad

(Despite the years, this is still the best Deepavali advertisement ever! It was funny, direct to the point and made us think for a second on the meaning of Deepavali. We will miss Yasmin Ahmad for her talents & creativity)

Malaysia’s Chicken & Egg Story

(Long before the illusive 1Malaysia came along, Malaysia already been a multi racial, multi cultural country. We had our differences but we don’t see our fellow Malaysians as threats. Image source: http://ajinbgagah.blogspot.com)

It has been in everyone’s mind but no one dared to say or do the obvious…

Aizuddin Danian of VOI posted something that worth our serious consideration:-

He (Dr M) implies that the DAP, by promoting “meritocracy” is actually promoting a non-Malay domination of the society because its a foregone conclusion that the best Malaysians, in terms of education, business or any other field, are non-Malays.

2Malaysia Civil Servants

(I was prompted to write down this after I just came from overseas where I encountered first class service and  upon returning back, encountered a ‘tidak apa” attitude right here at home, Malaysia)
