Another award....

This time the PROXIMIDADE AWARD tag by Calvin! Thanks mate... Now to find time to spruce up my blog..

This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

To be given an award is a recognition and I thank Calvin for the tag... its double jubilation given the fact that BN got thumped in Kuala Terengganu.. ermm... to the voters in P036, Kuala Terengganu..

What does one do in desperation? When one need to win at all cost? (Probably a piece of news which MSM will deem it not newsworthy)

Najib handing out contracts to Class F contractors ala Lucky Draw!

In the most daring act to 'bribe' the electorate of Kuala Terengganu (KT) to date, Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak dished out 583 government contracts in a “lucky draw” fashion to each and every Class F contractor present at the Wisma Darul Iman in Kuala Terengganu on Jan 10, the fifth day of the KT by-election campaign.


These contracts (valued between RM30,000 to RM200,000 each), which were claimed to be for infrastructure works in the local township, were distributed in random by having the contractors come on stage to click on the computer.

And upon pressing the button, a contract would be awarded to the contractor, details of which - nature of works and contract price - would instantly appear in a big screen in the hall. Thus the contractor would walk home with his “prize” (a contract with a pre-determined price), with no question asked on his track record or suitability for the works assigned.

Najib, who launched these innovative awards, proudly claimed this as “a world record”, saying that: “In this lucky draw, everyone wins. Everyone gets a contract.

He further added that if Barisan Nasional wins in the coming Kuala Terengganu by-election, there would be more and bigger such contracts, so that the Class F contractors (confined to Malays, for small contracts) would “continue to make money and the country’s economy would continue to grow”.

Every one wins? Stupid statement indeed... poor mofos like us taxpayers loose you big MORON! The only fucking winner would be BN who will have an open cheque to continue to fuck the people. Gosh, I never imagine I would have to use such words to describe my feelings. And mind you this is the fler who will be PM!

And in an attempt to bait people with development... if they win this by-election.. gosh.. how many donkey years have BN been in charge of Terengganu? Why la now only development? More Monsoon Cup and Crystal Mosques? More contracts to contractors without looking at their track record or expertise? Just dish out contracts? What happen la if an electrical contractor gets a drainage project?

What a government we have in BN... I weep for Malaysia.

KTgites... you be the judge of this fler. My advise is.. Give this fler the BOOT! Kick him out of KT and then we kick him out of the Government.

Vintage Man United!

Monday was kinda sleepy... can't blame me though.. watched the match to the end and the adrenalin flow was so intoxicating that I could not sleep till its way past 4am.. that explains why I did not write about it yesterday.

Manchester United 3 Chelsea 0

What a game. Chelsea parading a midfield par excellence in Deco, Ballack, J Cole, Obi Mikel and Lampard! While Fergie lined up a shocker in Giggsy and Fletcher with Ronaldo and Park. I was aghast but Giggsy and Fletcher did not disappoint. They were simply awesome, Giggs was a pleasure to watch and Evans was fantastic as a replacement for Rio. Gazza and Evra as ever no nonsense and simply great going forward. Berbatov though I wished he would be involved more but its his style really that he poked and prod with his grace is simply vintage. Manchester United at their best! Chelsea meanwhile just disintegrated.. Carvalho and Terry who?

The goal I liked best? Wayne Rooney's poking between Ca$hley Cole's legs! Serves him right for just wanting to shield the ball instead of whacking it wide for a corner or throw in! No wonder Rafa is worried that he let fly a tirade accusing Manchester United of everything... hahaha...

Watch out Benitez... them scousers ain't gonna stay top for much longer! You will crumble as magnificently as the great Kevin Keegan did when he was manager of the Magpies.. :).

What Double Standards?

According to the police... NO ILLEGAL GATHERINGS.. NO CANDLE LIGHT VIGIL... NO DEMONSTRATION... or so they say...

Demonstration against the Zionist... HERE.

Whether Israel's current clobbering of Palestinians and Hamas is right or wrong, I do not think I would like to get myself sucked into a never ending discussion. It will be a whole lot easier if these two bickering group take their war to the moon. I think, the world then would be a much more peaceful place to live in.

Now, 5000 started their march from Tabung Haji building.... towards US Embassy... no FRU? no water chemical laced water cannon? no senseless clobbering of demonstrators?? Key word I found in the article

This group was largely made up by Umno Youth members from the Titiwangsa division.

Then the article shows the picture of burning of flag.. which is symbolic of anger... its okay to burn Israel, US flag... but not Umno or BN... I now hope that the police come out with guidelines as to what we can demonstrate against illegally and what we can't.

Then we have the freaking old hag of an ex-PM calling upon Malaysians to BOYCOTT! yeah.. BOYCOTT US made products as these buggers are said to be supporting the Zionist cause... GOOD! BOYCOTT! But why stop at McDonalds, Coca Cola and Starbucks? Think further.. what else is American? Intel, AMD, IBM, HP... boycott also Astro Channels.. most of them are American anyway... do not use.. Google, Yahoo, MSN.. gosh.. throw away your computers as it is using Microsoft OS and programs and please delete your profile on Facebook!

Why stop at McD? Poor old uncle Ronald... and why not KFC? A&W? Ownership of the brands? I just wish that the old man would just ease into his retirement gracefully .. has he not forgotten that he paid a Jew to be photographed with his arch enemy, President George Bush Jr? A man with an elephant's memory does have selective memory loss at times...

Okay, I have completed my rantings... I think I shall go out later and get a coke from a 7-11, then I may adjourn to Starbucks for a frappuchino and surf the net on my Acer (isay.. Taiwanese brand) which uses an Intel core-duo processor operating Windows Vista and using my trusty wireless logitech mouse... then for dinner, I might just pop into McD for a Prosperity Burger with Coke! While having dinner, I might call up my wife (who works in an American Bank) with my Nokia (yeah.. its Finnish) running on Symbian OS... After all, CNY is around the corner.... and I shall not patronize any mamak stall that does not sell my favourite beverage! Made in Malaysia's COCA COLA!

Change is About to Come to Malaysia!

Sorry for my long long silence... firstly we have the friendly IRB team coming in for a field audit right before year end and then I have a bunch of relatives deciding to come back home from all over for holidays and then its Christmas.. and then.. its new year.. and then its all budget meetings for the new fiscal year and then school reopens! Yeah, busy is an understatement.

So many "and thens" have taken so much time and it is difficult to gather my thoughts and pen a decent article down... so I thought then that I should not write something which is half baked. (I call it procrastination). But having made my new year resolution to continue to yak about all thats gone wrong in our country.. I intend to keep to it.. at least crystallize one of my resolution and for good measure too...

Since my last post, Sime Darby has since abandoned their idea of buying a stake in IJN despite government saying that they are putting it on hold... I hope that ends the "interest" of Najib and co to sell IJN and make a tidy profit after the failed Euro-cocked up deal.

These days, I guess the focus have shifted to East Coast, Kuala Terengganu to be precise and blogger Zorro has called on the boycott of MSM. I second that any day! Reading them make me puke! So BOYCOTT! I have been boycotting MSM since long before March 8... so it makes no difference to me, but I would like to sincerely call onto others to do the same. Reading lies and enriching the people telling them is just the most horrible thing we can do as human beings. So, boycott it is! I will take some time off today to have the logo displayed.

Zorro talked about the crowd during nomination (and here) but I think Pakatan should not get too over confident and cocky right now. They have to ensure another win for Pakatan and further reduce BN's thin majority in Parliament. Maybe its the encouragement they need to have those undecided froggies to decide that its time to hop. With that in mind, I also share Harris's thoughts that Najib should not be PM. Kuala Terengganu voters should not be bluffed into thinking that the so called "rift" in Pakatan (i.e the recent spat between Manicakvasagam in PKR and Santiago in DAP) to be manipulated into a crumbling Pakatan. If there is any if you ask me, I think it is healthy that all the disagreements are discussed and debated and solutions sought unlike in the past where Umno practised the You Must Not Object unilateral decision making where they lord over the kuncu-kuncu in MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP etc. Instead as Haris rightly pointed out that the so called "rift" is actually democracy at work!

Kuala Terengganu could be the last nail in BN's coffin if the decision is overwhelming, it will just go to show that the tide of March 8, is not a one-off but a growing tide that will sweep the country..... eventually... I hope. It is not that I think Pakatan will be the choice of government, but, I would think that they can do no worse than BN. So, my fellow Kuala Terengganu voters, this is the time to send another message to BN. They have failed to "listen" during March 8... and they thought Permatang Pauh was a one off since it was an "Opposition Stronghold". Now, lets send a loud and clear message through the "Bastion of BN" in the Kuala Terengganu by-election that Change is about to come to Malaysia!
