Bull-in-law-train!

28th March 2007 - Reading the news about the most anticipated projects for the people of Malaysia and perhaps Singapore? (here) really brings me to my memories a year ago when I brought out the same issue toward one of the members of the Islamic Development Bank cum former MCS member at INTAN, Bukit Kiara.

Why? Why? Why? WHAT? Looks like young fella like me have the upper advantage in forseeing the future of the geopolitical situations of this country rather than much experienced man like him. Supposed Tun Dr. Mahathir should finish the project first then step down rather than trusting on his successor to continue it, if he continue it. I'm right and I knew it!

The Reluctant Politician - Tun Dr. Ismail

Mine
Yes indeed! He is very close to me in my heart and my mind. He is the reason to everything I am now and will be in the future to come. Just came back from MPH, Alamanda to get my copy of the much mentioned book on "him". It cost me about RM68.00 and I only managed to grab the exhibit copy since the stock drain out. Will read it with ardent affection.

Me at Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson
26th March 2007 - Yesterday was National Police Day. I went to the parade early in the morning with my family. It was great, and reminds me of my time at the Maktab Pegawai Kanan Polis Di Raja Malaysia, Cheras. Everything went well.

In the evening I ask my "Pak Su" to accompany me and my sisters to Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson just for leisure. It was a sunny evening and it was indeed a great holiday. Here are some photos taken for the family picnic yesterday.

Old photo of me and Neil

I found an old pic of me and my close friend Neil Arthur in my PC. This photo was taken a year ago at the Maktab Pegawai Kanan Polis Di Raja Malaysia. It was the hard time of my life. Remember I wrote an article once about my friendship with Neil. I told my viewers that he (Neil) will always be my side guarding my shoulder. Well here the prove, me in the black suit and Neil standing on my left shoulder. No one could have a better friend.

ELLIPSIS

Norimah mention something about me which makes me smile for days. I'm not saying anything. I guess I need to get myself one Walther PPK and get used to the phrase "shaken but not stern". Thanks Norimah for lighten up my days!

I'm feeling the pinch of the toll rise

22nd March 2007 - I'm feeling the pinch of the toll rise yesterday. I slept at KGSAAS last night with my friend (just came for visit to my apartment) Farid Syazwan. We left from Putrajaya and this is the first time I'm using the cash lane instead of smart tag lane. The toll entry to Puchong before usually cost me about RM.100 now at the height of RM 1.60.

It was 0.60 cents increment which was 60% out of the erstwhile rate. I was shocked and in agape. Usually I used the smart tag lane and just ignore how much it deducted from my touch and go card. Then after the entry toll to Puchong, I had to pass the exit toll to Shah Alam (using the HICOM highway). It again cost me about RM 1.60 same amount and same increment rate like the entry toll to Puchong.

And let me tell you something that I heard from my friend at KKR. It's not gonna be good next year. Cost of living will be uglier for those who daily used the SILK and PLUS Highway. The good??? The Bad!!! And the Ugly!!!

KL traffics? Blame it on "rakyat"

Everyone was so fuss today about the charge that will be collected at the outskirt of Kuala Lumpur when Cabinet agrees towards the plan. I must say that the gap between the rich and poor will be widen up unparalled to any of the history of our nations macro-economics. Like I said before, the system in this nation nowdays is in reverse. What the developed nation was and continue doing currently in any first world state is to narrow down the gap between the have's and the have's not. But what we are doing here is to bring the poor to the threshold and let them jump suicide.

Everyone knows how was Borhan attitude when he being the District Officer. Isn't it obvious that our public transport level was at the lowest rung of the developing nations excellence? What happened to the RM 4.1 billion (came out from the oil subsidy) that our government slashed last year thus increased the market oil prices. Isn't it supposed to be used to mend the public transport therefore ease the traffic problems? RM 4.1 billion is a lot of money and somebody needs to reminds somebody where the moneys gone? Maybe somebody's son-in-law knows something about the money? Show me the money!

Congratulations???

Mohd Sidek Hassan

21 March 2007 - Being a government servants I can't run away from the facts of talking about the incumbent Chief-Secretary of State contracts extension period of two years. I'm writing this article not representing any form of service or any ministry, but I'm speaking from my own heart per-se (if we still have the liberty of self-expression nowdays).

Malaysia have the unlimited sess pool of great talents and able person of doing a great task. I do not believe in any specialty task and one man army in an enormous body such as our government. What makes America a great nation is that they will always have an able person replacing the primary post when the time comes and they never extend any indenture of any form. When the time comes for them to leave then they'll leave. That what makes them a great nation.

But the system in our young nations is inverse. We appoint someone for the post which they have no experience or knowledge what so ever in managing a human resource so big such as our government. And they want to play and act like they are the chosen one? I believe congratulations are in order.

Are you scared brother joe?

The letter
I'm re-posting the letter from KKDN (that had been circulated through out the blogsphere) just to show how kiasu brother joe had been towards the people's power. Isn't it obvious? The threat letter came from that particular ministry. But this illiterate scum-bag never realize that we are living in the flat world.

Operation Dinner Out with Neil

Buddies

Last Friday (16tn March 2007) - I went out for dinner with my good friends Neil Arthur at Ayza Kajang. He is currently stationed at KKR. We had a good time together talking about the past, present and the future. He's gonna get married at the end of this year at Malacca. I'm for sure will be there on the wedding day.

We talk about KSN, KSU (KPDNHEP, MITI and KKR). We shared a lot of views on lots of things. About KJ and PM, and some other things. This is the man who stood beside me when I'm in the deepest and lowest rung of life and this is the same man who keep on supporting me in everything I do. He is like a brother to me. Everybody, meet my good friends Neil Dato' Arthur Edmonds.

UKM drift - Final part

The smells of the tire burning and screeching sounds of Nissan Skyline engine really boils the adrenaline in me. I was accompanied by friends and relatives from Labok, Machang. There are participants/ driver from Machang too. We knew him and it was great!

Yesterday (18tn March 2007) I went to UKM to see a free motor show by the local's motorsport association held at UKM. It was supported by the Engineering Faculty (Bac. of Mechanical Engineering). Here are the photos taken during the show.

Thank you for the support given

19tn March 2007 - I'm back again in the battle station today. I been receiving a lot of sms and email supporting me for what had happened. I'm feel quite honored as if I'm the future world saver of tomorrow. People keep getting to me to show support and best of luck wishes. The worst thing to do in life is break. But when you usually in an intense situation and keep getting pressures from all around, suddenly that strain is gone, it seems your world is empty and not worth to living in.

I know I sound weird, but that's me. I love a mentally challenge and good sports. Time like this is when good friends might come in handy. Not to give you purchasing power, but as a listener. Myself is gagging to do something worthy but maybe God thinks I'm not ready for it yet. I had no grudge towards Him, because He is the One who took care of me before and I hope forever. I just need a channel to bring out the beast in me.

My Son-in Law - Little Black Napoleon?

PUTRAJAYA, March 12 (Bernama) - Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Monday became the first recipient of the Napoleon Hill Foundation Global Leadership Award in recognition of his outstanding global leadership. Foundation chairman Dr Charles Johnson said the award was to recognise outstanding global leadership and Abdullah had shown his dedication to the country's development. Abdullah said he was overwhelmed and accepted the award humbly. "Do I deserve this?" he asked in his acceptance speech and the floor responded with "Of course".

DO YOU STILL HAVE TO ASK? THE TRUTH HURTS.

It's spin doctors economic myth/ math

15tn March 2007 - It's spin doctors economic myth/ math. Don't believe everything you read in the "Kali" papers. The indicators that you should look upon in determining the current economic environment is, the grass root facts and not the son in-law's thugs mathemeticology. It is believe that the little black man has been giving every UMNO deputies head-state branch one Rexton each for strong support of the RMK-9.

I believe that (Rexton) it wasn't for clearing the conscience of ones mind, but hammering the way for the black boy and his thugs for the number one post. How to gauge the economic environment the right way? See how many bid and how many company racing for one project tender. How many and whom got the direct-nego contracts? That's the right question!

What a bloody damn joke!

14 March 2007 - Our "Number One" had launched the new space odyssey called Mission 2057! I thought Paris Hilton was the best jester in the world. I was wrong.

Free style

Yesterday's photo
12th March 2007 - Yesterday I went swimming with my younger sister at Mewah Club. Everything went okay. I tired my legs for two days. The day before I went to University Malaya early in the morning at 7.45am for a tennis match. It was an exhausting day. After the match I slept for five hours. Be back for the match again (I presume) this Saturday. Nothing much in life currently except my free style cruising. Cheerio!

Great news - Zarina is getting married!

Zarina's invitation card

I received one of the good news for this month. My close friend Zarina (MCS's) is getting married. I came back to my office room and surprised to find out an invitation card is being placed on my desk. The wedding plan is about to take place at Zarina's place which is Bukit Piatu, Melaka.

I always remember Zarina as one of my good friend that always understand me. I knew her about a year ago at INTAN, Kluang and together we embark upon a great crusade at INTAN, Kiara. She can gauge what's on my mind and what's in my heart. I always find it easy to share things with Zarina and I am thankful to God for sending me such a great friend as Zarina. I try to make it there at Bukit Piatu, Melaka on the 31st March 2007. May their love life last forever!

This is Sparta!

9th March 2007 - This is Sparta! Wow! What a movie it was (300) last night. I enjoyed it very much. I arrived at KLCC at 6.05 pm after late rush from office Putrajaya. There should be at least 1 out of 10 Spartans in Malaysia (at least).

We queue up for tickets at 6.15pm and managed to get very good seats. Thanks to Intan (Zam girlfriend's) for picking up a very good spot in TGV. I got to give you that, the movie was magnificent. The words and the movie pictures was great. I suddenly remember my good friend Shamsul when I worked for Tun. He always tells me how great it was the epic battle of King Leonidas against Xerxes in Thermopylae. That man is a walking dictionary about Greek history.

But in the movie when it came to tell the story about Ephialtes, I suddenly had an image of PM's son-in-law. I don't know why, but it just crossed my mind. Perhaps you all should see the movie for yourself. Cheerio!

Happy Women's Day Jessica

8th March 2007 - Happy women's day to all the women's in the world. Especially to Jessica Alba! :-) Just the type of my women. I'm gonna have lunch this afternoon with my close friend Naeman. What a day to start with a phone call to your best friend.

Altered in noon - I just came back from lunch with Naeman. That man looks great. We talked about a lot of things just now. Some things about past. He asked me about when the hell I'll get married? I ask him the same question. We talked about Zarina. She mentioned about me last two days and I know she misses me.

I miss her too and wish her well in her future undertaking to Kuantan. We talked about Mazlan and Salim (Disregard of allocated laws). There's no Tuan anymore for me and Naeman. And so everythings went well this afternoon. I'll be at KLCC this late evening for a movie (300). Care to join me?

Bon Voyage Dad!

7th March 2007 - My step father left for Mecca today. I wish he will have a nice journey. I miss that man. Last night we spend time together talking about life. He always been nice to me. I still remember last year when I had an emotional problem and falled into depression when my love one left me. He stayed beside me to support me. He even went to Mecca that year and prayed for my good love life for it. No one could had a better father. I love that man. May God protect you on your journey to met Him. Be back for us!

Sports really bring the sharpness in me. I played futsal last week on the 3rd of Mac 2007 with my High School friends at Bangi. The sharpness of my mind starts to get back to myself after three days unstoppable sports activity barrage which I forced on myself. I hope my friends don't neglect about personal health too. It can be gain through sports no matter how busy you are.

Alahai Brother Joe!

Peace Bro! No War!
I believe the allegations made was witten by an officer in the enforcement agency. But which agency? The writing was meticulous and law savvy. As if an Investigative Officer conjure up a magical trap for a "pembesar". Please refer to http://www.freewebs.com/southeast-wind/ for a careful reading. I shall reserved my comments until the prosecution done. If it had any!

Asam Pedas from Bandar Hilir

4th March 2007 - I came back from Malacca yesterday evening. My Malacca trip was superb. I never thought that I'll enjoy doing courses with INTAN and my DPA friends again. But overall it was an escape to happiness for three days at Renaissance Malacca.

I managed to get quite a number of new friends which I cherish and grateful that they were my friends. Erna whom I knew during the courses was incredibly sweet. We went out for some tea beside the Klebang beach on the 1st March and it was great. Erna currently works at the Renaissance hotel as the sales coordinator. Yesterday I stop by at her house for an evening tea with her parents and it was going up so well.

Other than that, INTAN put me into one room (twin sharing) with my long good friend named Fathi. He currently works at the Ministry of Education in the audit department. He is still the same Fathi that I know when I was doing DPA at INTAN, Bukit Kiara. We shared a lot of problems (regarding works) which I took some of his opinion on certain matters and vice versa. Both of us was trying to finish up the budget for next year (2008).

I meet Norhisham which was close to me when we were being put together at Bachok (under DPA, INTAN). A lot have changed. Trust me, and this guy have married also with the same MCS's name Azzyanti. They worked at the same department at Malacca. And the best part of it, they didn't mention that they were husband and wifes until the last minute of the courses duration. Good luck to both of you.

After checking out of the hotel, I held a meeting at the states Ministry for a courtesy visits. I met the Deputy Director of the Enforcement Division for Malacca state named Mr. Wee. After the meeting, Mr. Wee treat me with some Malacca "kuih" deluxe, and it was heaven. According to Mr. Wee, the restaurant was the most popular and known at the Ujong Pasir area. You can find all the varieties of Malaysian "kuih-muih" at the restaurant.

The only thing that disappoint me was that I forgot to bring my camera along for the trip and I'm unable to share the memories with you all through the lens. But I will be back to Malacca at the early of April for another meeting. I drove back to Kajang yesterday, after having another evening tea with Erna parents. My Malacca trip was rated by me myself as 4 and a half star. I begin to think myself as one of them. Thank you Malacca and thank you Asam Pedas.
