To know Malaysia is to Love Malaysia ?

Three African students were hurt and one seriously injured after they were attacked by 30 local men in the compound of a Lagenda College hostel in Mantin on May 28 2008. In the incident, several cars and a guard post in the hostel were damaged. It was speculated that, the attack arose because the local men are not happy with the African students for dating the local women.

After the unprovoked attack from the local men, the African students armed with baseball bats and metal rods gathered at the hostel to express their angers over the senseless beating of their friends. Outside the hostel's compound, a group of local men also gathered with baseball bats and metal rods. The situation was tense, but luckily, the college authority managed to calm the situation.


I viewed this attack as an act of racism. As a practical man, I accept the fact that racism exist everywhere, and all over the world. In Malaysia, the civilized people practice tolerance, respect, and appreciation of other people ethnicity, religion, and culture. But sadly, there are also some uncivilized idiots who are incapable to respect the rights of others. Manifestation of violences seemed to be their only protective mechanism to impose their ignorances on others.

One word of advise to the foreigners. Forget about those smiling faces depicted and marketed by the tourism promotion board, those smiles can be very deceiving. When you are in Malaysia, please refrained from dating the local women. Because there may be an army of inferiority complex men out there, thinking that you are being insensitive to their little or lack of manhoods, by dating their local women.

Well, what can I said ? It seemed to me that, these attackers are not only uncultured, but also uncivilized. No insensitivity intended, but somehow, I do suspect maybe the descendants of wild animals from the nearby jungles are involved in the senseless attacks. Blardy farking uncultured racists ! Blardy shameless morons. My apology for spewing profanities, but these barbaric racists' actions did indeed made me very angry. These idiots are nothing but a bunch of sexually deprived and neutered two legged stray dogs.

Bravo... Malaysia, Truly Asia !!

An Incredible story.....

I received this in my email today........

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University .

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.

He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, P eter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter couldn't help wondering if thi s was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed his stupid ass against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn't the same elephant.

This is for all of my friends who send me those heart-warming stories.

It's Pedra Branca forever........

The 28 year-old dispute between Malaysia and Singapore over a few pebbles in the South China Sea is finally over. On 23 May 2008, the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is based in Hague, delivered its judgment over the sovereignty of Pedra Branca (Pulau Batu Puteh), Middle Rocks, and South Ledge.

The ICJ's judgment states that :
  1. Pedra Branca / Pulau Batu Puteh belongs to the Republic of Singapore;
  2. Middle Rocks belongs to Malaysia;
  3. South Ledge belongs to the State in the territorial waters of which it is located (?)

Read here for ICJ unofficial press release and Judgment.

"This morning's decision is a 'win-win' outcome to both sides. The ICJ decided based on historical facts and international law as well as administrative implications and other related matters...the court decided to award sovereignty to Singapore but at the same time awarded sovereignty over Middle Rocks to Malaysia. This is a victory for Malaysia as well..." - Malaysia's Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim.

Well, Syabas Malaysia ! Congratulation Singapore !

Pedra Branca also housed the famous Horsburgh Lighthouse which was built in 1851. The lighthouse was named after James Horsburgh of the East India Company. Too bad, Malaysia lost this beautiful lighthouse to Singapore. I do hope Malaysians can take the ICJ's decision like REAL gentlemen and refrained from holding unnecessary emotional protests and demonstrations. Let's us respect the international law, and not behaving like cry babies to start boycotting each other's products and services.

It is a crime to be sexy ?

......A Malaysian group condemned the uniform worn by girls at government schools, saying it encouraged rape and pre-marital sex............. The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction,............ that covering up according to xxxxxxx precepts was important to fend off social ills, including rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex....

The above is an extract of a news report published in the local newspaper today. I am a bit blurred now. Am I supposed to accept the argument that the offender is in fact a victim because he can't control his sexual urges ? Indeed I find it very amusing to read such comments from the so called religiously righteous people. On the other hand, I am now also beginning to understand why there are so many sexual criminals out there. Well, what can I say, some people do have a very funny and perverted sense of justice. My honest opinion is, present day society has so much social problems, not because of the dress codes of women, but too many narrow minded and misguided morons with misplaced religious values giving perverted criminals the religious justifications to commit sexual crimes. So, it is religiously correct to blame the victims and defend those criminals who commit sexual crimes ? Wow !

I do not wish to be insensitive to other people religious sensitivity on dress code. But my personal opinion is, if a person want to dress like an Arab, by all means, that is his or her rights. But in their eagerness to glorify their religious values, they should have the same religiosity to respect the rights of others. How can civilized people be sensitive to those religiously misguided people who always felt that it is their right to impose their religious insensitivity on others ? I am sicked and tired of these people's noisy and smelly discharges of contaminated energies. This is the 21st century, not the caveman century. Humanity has evolved to become a civilized society. It is beyond my comprehension of faiths and reasons to see there are still many groups of noisy people glorifying outdated values of human rights.

They said, don't judge a book by its cover. My personal belief is, how a woman dress has nothing to do with her morality and character. She is merely exercising her rights for freedom of expressions. It is a woman's rights to creatively show her perfections through clothings. Why are some of the so called religious inclined people find it so difficult to accept this basic fundamental rights of women ? Is it the fault of the victim if her choice of clothings “provoked” a pervert to lust like a barbaric animal ? So, according to some of these religiously inclined people, it is justified for those perverts to commit sexual crimes ? Why are these so called religiously educated people giving excuses to the sexual predators to justify their perverted sexual crimes ? Well, what can I say ? Some mothers do have them. And Yes, they do walk among us.

My honest feeling is, it is acceptable to have your own standard of morality and brag about the greatness of your religion, but the right thing to do is, KEEP YOUR RELIGIOUSITY TO YOURSELF ! DON'T USE THE GOOD NAME OF YOUR RELIGION TO IMPOSE YOUR MISGUIDED NARROW MINDEDNESS AND STUPIDITIES ON OTHERS. If you are ashamed of the imperfections of your own body, by all means, please use whatever gunnysacks to cover your self. That is your rights. If you insist on revealing clothes to show the artistic imperfections of your body, that is also your rights. But if you persist on invoking your religion to unreasonably impose your biased rights, and expect others to be sensitive to your rights to your misguided intolerances, may I remind you that, not all of us profess the same religion as you. So, please mind your own business, leave the good name of religion alone, and park your religious insensitivity elsewhere !

A sexual offense is a criminal offense. Period. It is a great sin for those who continuously harping on religious justifications to defend those criminals' behaviors. A criminal who committed sexual offense should be punished accordingly. It is despicable to blame the victims simply because those sexually deprived two legged animals can't control their urges.

The sad plights of some Malaysians......

“An aspiring doctor had her dreams dashed when the Public Services Department (PSD) rejected her application to study medicine overseas. K. Kamine Devi, who scored 10 A1s in last year's SPM, said she had her heart set on becoming a doctor that she even participated in an attachment programme which exposed her to a doctor's job in April.....” Read further HERE.

How could this happened ? The possible reasons could be, either we have too many top scorers in the recent public examinations, or the government can no longer afford to offer scholarship to bright students. I sincerely doubt our present education system is capable of producing too many top students capable of scoring more than 10 A1's. I remembered, many years ago, a professor in a Canadian university, after observing so many sponsored students from Malaysia failed in his class, out of desperations, he remarked “are you people the best talents from your country ? “ Honestly, I don't know what prides these privileged underachievers have, but I do felt ashame to be associated with them. Because of their selfish needs, they brought shames to the country.

I do wonder, on yearly basis, how many scholarships has been given out ? I do hope the Public Services Department can publish a list of students who are given scholarships together with their academic results.

The news article reminded me about a real incident. About a month ago, I was told, a local public listed company conducted a scholarship awards interviewing on short listed candidates in Kuala Lumpur. A number of candidates came for the interviews on chauffeured driven expensive cars. The funny thing is, why would these rich kids from well to do family competing with the poor to deny them the opportunity for better education ? If they can afford expensive vehicles costing hundreds of thousands of Ringgits, can't these rich families afford education for their own children ? Why are they still immorally living like parasites of the society ? For how long can the society sustain this insensitive indecency of these people who are financially well to do, but perpetually mentally under-privileged ?

I do hope those scholarship holders with lower grades of academic results can have the basic decency to return their scholarships, so that deserving students from poor families are not indecently denied the opportunities for better education.

There are always righteous but misguided Malaysians going around the world championing the rights of others ( which is none of our business anyway) in other countries, and some felt they also have the moral authority to shout noisy farting languages towards other fellow Malaysians about their rights and privileges. How about for a start, they empathize with the plights of others in Malaysia, instead of parasitically perpetuating the satisfaction of their unpatriotic and selfish needs ? I do hope these morons can have some right perspective of justice, fair play, and a culture of decency.

I do sincerely hope those who can afford to pay for their children's tertiary education, and those who are academically not qualified to receive scholarships can do the right things by returning the scholarships, so that other truly deserving and poor students are not deny the opportunities to better education. Let face it, a Mat Rempit will never become a Formula One driver. Likewise, an academically incapable student will never become academically inclined. Every Ringgit spend on a worthless and undeserving student, is a Ringgit lost. So, let us not waste our scare resources on them.

Let's us all have fair eyes for humanity. It is a great sin to commit deliberate degradation of human dignity and unfair treatments based on race, religion, creed, or whatsoever. Be fair, play fair, and let's not make life any more difficult for the poor and deserving students. Let us help them to realize their dreams by not denying them the opportunity for better education.

What colour is your soccer ball ?

I found this April 26th 2008 article in AFP interesting. It was reported that 21 groups in Malaysia threatened to hold mass protest if the Malaysian government allow Chelsea's Israeli coach, Avram Grant, and defender, Tal Ben Haim, playing tour match in Malaysia. According to one of the protester, “The reason for the travel ban to Malaysia is to isolate Israel which is a rogue state. If the Israeli footballers are allowed in, the government will be considered as being insensitive to the Palestinian people,.....” Read HERE for further report.

Now, I ask myself : “Is Israel a rouge state ?” I do find it irrationally unfair for certain biased groups to impose their biased opinions on others. Israel is a member country of the United Nations, so is Malaysia. Honestly, I think we should have the self respect of not calling other nations with degrading names. If we Malaysians start calling another member nation of the United Nations a rogue state because of our racist biases, aren't we also one by default ?

I understand there are never ending violent conflicts between Israel and Palestine in the Middle East. I honestly do not believe these conflicts can disappeared during the next 100 years as long as both sides continued to resort to violences, and stupid idiots from all over the world taking sides to cheer them on. As much as I empathized with the plights of the Palestinians, I also empathized with the sufferings of the Israelis. All of us should just stay neutral, let some of the war cravings Palestinians and Israelis to settle the score themselves. What makes some of these noisy people think that they own the moral rights to impose their noisy and misguided biases to force the rest of the Malaysians to take side ? Come on, as much as they want their sensitivity to be respected, I do sincerely hope that they can have some basic decency to respect the sensitivity of the rest of the Malaysians who do not wish to take side in the conflicts between Israel and Palestine.

Further more, we are talking about sports here. Everyone should have the basic decency to leave politics and religious preferences in friendship building sports activities. If you do not like to watch a particular nation playing the game, please stay at home and keep your religious and racist intolerances to yourself. The act of hijacking the sacredness of religion and racial ignorances to instigate hatreds against others is the most despicable deeds we should all avoid.

For those of you who love soccer, the Chelsea team is scheduled to play the Malaysian team on July 29th 2008. So book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. However, if those misguided people carry out their threat by holding mass protests at the stadium, I do sincerely hope the Police can play fair to round them up and send them to Hotel Kamunting. Afterall, the authority have no problem arresting the organizers of the Hindraf's mass protest, It is only fair in the name of maintaining peace and order that these misguided trouble makers be rounded up also to enjoy their curried rice in the Kamunting resort.

Keep Malaysia out of the Middle East conflicts. Majority of Malaysians love peace and do not wish to instigate the perpetuation of violences in the middle east. Please leave religious intolerances out from our favorite sports. If you still insist on supporting and taking sides in the Middle East conflicts, please buy a air ticket to fly to either Israel and Palestine to stage your protest there.

We are all educated and civilized people. Why are we still allowed ourselves to be irrationally emotional in spreading hatreds against other nations and races ? We want to champion the rights and plights of other people in other countries ? How about we start championing the rights and plights of all Malaysians in Malaysia ? Look around you. Have you been sensitive to the plights and rights of your fellow Malaysians in Malaysia ? The right things for all of us to do is, to refrain from acting like forked tongue specialists farting smelly noises. Indeed, sometimes, we are shamelessly exactly what we said of others.

Am I being insensitive by refusing to take side ? If wanting to stay neutral is offensive to some, then LET IT BE. May all the narrow minded and misguided racists be forever condemned to hell.

I pray for the healing of wounds between Palestinians and Israelis begin, let there be PEACE and LOVE.

Of keyboards and foods.....

I found this article interesting in Which?. It said, your harmless looking keyboard maybe 5 times filthier than a toilet seat !

Some keyboards carry more harmful bacteria than a toilet seat. Researchers tested keyboards from a typical London office and found bacteria that could put their user at high risk of becoming ill. The germs found could cause food poisoning symptoms such as diarrhea and other stomach upsets.....” Read Which? Computing for further report.

Hmmmm.... from now on, I will defend the honours of my keyboard and mouse with all my might. And, for Buddha's sake, please wash your dirty hand before you touch my keyboard and mouse. I swear I will chopped off your fingers and make you cry for mercy if there is any trace of funny fragrant lingering around my keyboard.

From keyboard to food, I swear I will never eat Roti Canai again. Those mamak-sans loved to flip Roti Canai with their bare hands, but I do wonder whether they clean their hands after they concluded their occasional business in the toilet. It does remind me of an incident many years ago in a coffee shop in Puchong where I “accidentally” saw a hawker scratching his backside in the middle of preparing the foods. That idiot actually has the audacity to smell his fingers after the scratching. I guess he probably like the smell of his rear orifice. It really pissed me off ! For his little gesture, I developed a phobia for eating in coffee shops and restaurants ever since......... Blardy mother farker !

Raja Petra Kamarudin

“If you read my article and understand English, you will see that I asked questions, not made allegations.” - Raja Petra Kamarudin, Malaysia's most famous blogger. Read further at Malaysian Insider

He was charged under Malaysia's seditious law for publishing an article in Malaysia Today (“Let's send the Altantuya murderers to Hell”) and was remanded at the Sungai Buloh Prison.

He is not only famous blogger in Malaysia, but also a very gutsy, outspoken, and influential blogger. Like it or not, he has been perceived as the champion of independent voice against the MSM in Malaysia. To a certain extend, his blog posts had shaped and influenced the net savvy and educated Malaysians, and indirectly helped the Pakatan Rakyat's to secure victories in the recent general elections.

What's next ? Maybe he should be the Prime Minister in waiting. Come to think of it, it is not such a bad idea at all...........

Mother's Day....

This coming Sunday is Mother's Day. My mother passed away many years ago. As an observance to honour my mother and to remember her good deeds, I will make a special trip to my home town, Taiping.

The following is a posting I wrote in 2006 to remember my mother :

12 years ago,
you did not bid us farewell.
Trembling in amazing calmness,
you move on silently,
as gentle as the wind.
You departed to the garden of God.

With your strong wills
and admirable determinations,
you have given us
the spiritual and moral comforts.
You have laboured days and nights,
sacrificed your youth and beauty,
and unselfishly devote your love to all of us.

Without reclaiming your labour of love,
in the evening of warm October's air,
you made the solo journey to be with God,
to rest your tired soul.......
You left your legacy of love and the memories
which forever resides in my heart.

You have always said
"A man is a pillar to the family", and
"Tar Por Kia, Beh Sai Low Bug Sai...."
(" A man must not shed tears ")
I shall always try
not to show my emotions in sorrow and sadness.
But, in solitude,
tears do flow freely recalling the images of you.
Sometimes, thinking of the life you went through,
I do hide in my room and silently cried in my heart.
Forgive me, I can not be a man of perpetual no sorrow....

I have not done enough
to make your life passage smoother.
I have not done enough
to make life more comfortable for you.
I always thought that,
tomorrow, I can make it better for you.
I am sorry
for the countless tomorrow's that you have waited
for me to deliver my duties as a son to you.
Tomorrow came, you are freed from pain,
in eternal peace, and you are gone forever.

I am sorry
for being too blinded to see your pains,
I am sorry
for not having the courage
to accept that you are dying,
I am sorry
for refusing to let you go.
I am forever
indebted to you for thy love.....

By that dear name, I called you. Mother.
losing you is my life's greatest sorrow.
I missed you and cherished the memories of you.
Of those good times, not so good times,
and of those growing up years...

I seek your forgiveness
for everything that I should have done but procastinated.
I seek your forgiveness
for not bidding you the final farewell.

Oh, my most merciful and gracious Buddha,
please accept my humble prayer to you,
please bless my mother's soul
to ease the attainment of grace and joys
in your garden of perpetual happiness.........

Om mani padmi hom,
Om Namo Amithaba Buddha.....

Que Sera Sera...

Another few more months, if things work out according to plan, I will be retiring at end of the year. Something I look forward to, to retire young, and to do the things I always wanted to. It would be nice for a start to compare with friends how big a fish I caught on fishing trips rather then how much sales I generated in the corporate tug-of-wars.

I belonged to the “after merdeka” generation of the 60's, and miraculously survived the 70's, 80's, 90's, and now the 2000's. As a young man, I traveled far and wide. Had my happy days, sow my wild seeds, and married young. My son will be graduating soon from the college. Looking back, not a bad life indeed. They said, life wisdom is a collection of experiences. Taking it positively, I earned my dues as a wise middle-age man. Looking at it on the not so positive side, we are also a generation of morons. We did believe in equality and fairness for all Malaysians, but we learned that, equality and fairness come with heavy sacrifices. We worked hard to improve our standard of livings and accumulation of wealths, but we also realized there are so many self proclaimed under privileged people out there demanding their rights to entitled the fruits of our labours.

I am from the generation that work hard for our next generation. But this new generation is way out of touch with mine. The “young people” seemed to think that it is okay to be seen to be weird with punky coloured hairs and earings. They wear expensive designer clothes, expensive shoes, and high-tech hand phone (they called it PDA), while I bargained for a cheaper Pagoda t-shirt, and trying to prolong the battery life of my old bulky Nokia phone to save a few dollars more. While I sweat it out conquering new sales territories, they built their empires on the fantasy cyber space of internet with their avatars and virtual friends. My generation seemed to think that money can't buy happiness, but nevertheless, we approach life with down to earth practicality by working hard to establish financial comforts, but this new weird generation of bolihism seemed to think that money can at least rent financial recognition, and credit cards are gateway to temporary financial glories to impress others.

My generation believed in fairness. We worked hard to get “rich”. But this new spoon fed generation are basically a bunch of indecent idealists with the notion that because there are rich people and poor people, it isn't fair to have such income disparity. Hello, are we a democratic country or are we a communist country ? Is it a sin to be rich ? It is okay to envy the rich, but please don't lust for their wealth. If you want to live a wealthy life style, please work hard to become rich and buy your own bungalows and BMWs.

The world don't owed my generation a living. Do you honestly believed the world now owed your generation a living ? Come on, go fark off and start hitting the road to earn your dues.

At the end of the day, que sera sera. The hardworking will continued to enjoy wealthy life style, while the lazy parasites will forever live in shit holes ranting their incoherent languages. This is the law of karma. It has been that way in the past, and it always will in the future.

Om Namo Amithaba Buddha.

And God becomes us.....

Over the past few weeks, I have been hearing sad stories of so many people suffered from cancer and other terminal illnesses. Why do good people suffered from these dreaded diseases ? I do wonder. If there is actually a creator we commonly acknowledged as God, and if this almighty fella is such a loving and forgiving entity, why then does he or she allowed human to suffer ? Are we supposed to surrender ourselves completely and unconditionally to this perverted creator and endure illnesses as our fate, and a test of our faith in him ?

I remembered the sufferings of my late mother. She was a very religious and kind person. But it doesn't matter whether a person is religious or otherwise, cancer does not discriminate. She suffered from cancer. She was exhausted by the treatments and the pains she endured. At the end, she was defeated by cancer. When she needed God most, God was nowhere to be seen. “God works in mysterious ways.” ? Come on, Give me a break ! I said, go fark off with all those holy craps. Why should I believe in a God that glorifies sufferings ? Honestly, I would rather believe in the law of karma, Satan, angels, and all the natuk kongs.

Whatever it is, the past one week has been a very difficult week emotionally. Somehow, I had a funny feeling that God ( if there is one ) does not comes into this world with love, he came with a sword that brought wars and sufferings. And, the believers are created here to suffer and endure pains in his name. This mighty fella must be a sadist enjoying in the dark corner watching helpless humans suffering from illnesses and aging. If this is his ball game, then why are we still being so naive and illogical to believe there is a God and worship him blindly ?

Do I blame God for all these dreaded diseases such as cancer and aging ? No, I am not looking for someone greater than myself to blame. Why should I blame a non existence entity ? As a Buddhist, I do not believe in the existence of God. God is merely a one letter short of four letters word we invented in our deluded mind to seek hope for elusive miracles.

If a government is incapable to mange a country and the people welfare, the natural tendency is to vote the government out during the general elections. If the “God” we are asked to believe in, is incapable to manifest and salvage us during our times of difficulties and sufferings, then why are we still believing in its existence ? Perhaps, insanity rules our heads, we created God, in his name, we institutionalized our stupidities into religion, ritualized our incomprehensible words into written word of God, and documenting illogical thoughts into prayers.

The more we are educated, the less we learned. We are, after all, a bunch of unconsciously incompetent and inferiority complex animals trying to immortalize our masochism by fantasizing the existence of something greater than ourselves to seek hope of avoiding the finality of life.

Like it or not, we must get out from our mental cocoons to seek cures ourselves, rather than wasting our times shouting noisy prayers for the elusive probability of spiritual enlightenments. By the way, noisy prayers do contribute to noise pollutions. We live in the real world on earth. The reality is, there is no temple bigger than our hearts, and there may or may not be a God out there. But for the time being, to live happily and meaningfully, we need to logically acknowledge that, God is only an illusion in our deluded minds. We are all gardeners of this earth. We reaped what we sowed. What goes around, comes around. As long as we are unable to grasp this reality, there shall be no happiness, love, health, wealth, and peace on earth.

As much as I want to be a spiritual person, I also happened to believe in truths and reasons. Our hope for cures and treatments of dreaded diseases and aging lie in our efforts in modern medical research, not through blind faiths and prayers to a “God”. Our faiths are in our own hands. We are master of our own destiny, not the elusive “God”. Others can justify and believe in whatever Gods they want, but should have the basic decency to refrain from imposing and mislead others with their beliefs.

Om Namo Amithaba Buddha.....
