PRK DUN KAJANG: ANWAR HILANG KREDIBILITI......

Membaca sejarah lampau, teringat kisah sewaktu DS Anwar dipecat dari Kjaan dan Umno serta diaibkan.  Hari pertama dipecat, di antara yg terawal berkunjung menziarahi DS Anwar di rumahnya adalah Almarhum Us Fadzil Noor Presiden PAS.  Ketika itu, ramai pimpinan PAS dan ahli PAS yg tidak setuju Almarhum Fadzil Noor bertemu Anwar atas sebab, pertama, itu masalah dalaman Umno dan Anwar.  Kedua, mereka kata Anwar dulu dlm Umno serang PAS maka tak wajar Almarhum Us Fadzil cuba berbaik dgn Anwar.  

Ketika itu Almarhum Us Fadzil sanggup hilang 'imej dan kredibiliti' sebagai Presiden PAS kerana dikritik oleh beberapa pimpinan dan ahli PAS sendiri.  Namun, Us Fadzil ada sebab mengapa beliau bertemu DS Anwar.  Hujah utamanya adalah biarpun Anwar dulunya menentang PAS, tapi sekarang Anwar telah dizalimi dan wajib Anwar dibantu.  Ketika itu ramai yg berkata apa faedahnya dan untungnya Us Fadzil berbuat demikian?

Nah, Us Fadzil kini telah tiada.   Apakah untungnya perbuatan Us Fadzil berpuluh tahun dulu kpd PAS?  PAS amat hebat sekarang malahan disokong semua kaum, letak bertanding di mana saja PAS punyai harapan baik.  Bukan kerana Anwar sebenarnya, tetapi kerana kebijaksanaan Almarhum Us Fadzil yg sanggup dikritik hebat dan korbankan kredibilitinya sebagai Presiden demi untuk partinya.  Menyedihkan, Almarhum tidak sempat lama melihat kemajuan PAS.  Sekarang, baru kita terfikir langkah Almarhum dulu itu amat tepat sekali. 
Kini, Anwar pula dikritik hebat dan beliau hilang kredibilitinya bila dianggap sebagai 'gila kuasa', bila bertanding di Dun Kajang.  Jika dulu Almarhum Us Fadzil dicemuh oleh rakan2 dlm partinya sendiri kerana memilih strategi berbaik dgn Anwar bekas musuh politik PAS, kini Anwar juga dicemuh oleh ahli2nya sendiri.  Apakah Anwar memang sengaja memilih untuk dicemuh atau hilang kredibiliti hanya kerana kerusi Dun? 

Aku yakin, sejarah akan menceritakan kembali kisah ini....bukan sejarah anwar akan dimenangi tetapi kita akan melihat satu lagi pertembungan dua parti yang mahu menunjuk kehebatan masing dalam memenangi dun n25 kajang.....

4 Kategori Islam Menurut Barat - Khalid Yasin


Jangan Menitiskan Air Mata Kerana Video Ini



RENUNG-RENUNGKAN DAN SELAMAT BERAMAL

Betul Ker Nie?

MENGAPA kita tidak boleh berbangga dengan kehebatan Rosmah melahirkan zuriat yang hebat membuat filem seperti filem "The Wolf Of Wall Street"?  Bukankah filem itu dengar khabarnya sudah mengutip lebih dari RM40 Juta di dalam masa yang singkat ditayangkan di beberapa buah negara?
Aku pelik kenapa Perkasa Kangkung kritik filem berkenaan atas alasan itu filem lucah, malahan memecah rekod dunia sebuah filem yang paling banyak gunakan perkataan "Fu**" di dalam dialognya.  Filem itu juga dikatakan ada adegan pesta gay, perbuatan onani dan adegan lucah yang tentunya sinonim dengan selera Umporno kerana Umporno dan lucah tidak boleh dipisahkan.  Buktinya, kita naik jemu dulu adegan seks dan lucah ditayangkan siang malam melalui TV3 suku walaupun tujuannya untuk menfitnah Anwar, tetapi lucah tetap lucah juga.  Maka, elok sangatlah filem itu ditayangkan di negara ini kerana memenuhi dasar negara kira yang ber"Wassatiyyah".
Seperkara lagi, filem ini adalah melibatkan anak Bik Mama yang memakan belanja lebih kurang RM 300 juta lebih.  Jangan tanya di mana anak Bik Mama dapat duit, mungkin dia menabung dari kecil mencontohi ibunya.
Perkasa Kangkung jangan melebihi kuasa Tok Peti.  Tok Peti pun tidak bising soal filem ini kerana Tok Peti sedang mencari hukum "Bughah" yang boleh di"Bughah"kan kepada umat Islam yang menyebut "kangkung".  Jangan pelik tidak lama lagi ada fatwa baru bahawa sebutan "kangkung" boleh menyebabkan seseorang itu kufur.  Jadi, soal filem anak Bik Mama ini jangan kita bimbang sangat kerana fatwa pun tiada.  Janganlah Perkasa menyibuk mahu ambil tugas Tok Peti tu.
Mana suara Jamil Khir, Masitah, Fathul Biri dan Ridhuan Tee "Kiasu"?  Jangan harap suara mereka.  Mengharapkan suara-suara dua tiga ekor lembu pawah ini sama juga seperti mengharapkan Najib tarik balik penggunaan Kalimah Allah dalam Kitab Bible di Sabah dan Sarawak.  Ada berani?  Kirim salam la ok.

Three Scenarios On Future of PM­­

THE Kedai Kopi Assembly (KKA) continues to sit at several coffee shops with different sets of members. A few were planned but most were impromptu.
Two planned sessions took place. One involved a minister and the other an adviser with ministerial status to the Prime Minister.
I am not sure if this sudden interest by the government people to join the KKA has anything to do with my posting entitled “Tangani Berita Bukan Bunuh Pembawanya” (baca di sini) on Jan 14.
Since I have not updated the KKA for a while, this posting will be somewhat long. Please bear with me.
Let me begin by recalling who attended these sessions and where they were held. A lunch session at Raju involved a public sector economist who helped me create the Kangkung Index and a Malay executive with a listed non-Khazanah GLC.
They were both concerned about the economy and politics of the country. They better be. They are young and their children are still small. If we mess up, they and their children will suffer. Even though they are middle class, still they feel the pinch of government-mandated price increases.
We were later joined by a former Umno MB who voiced his concern over the likely negative impact on Umno of the growing “independence” of some Malay rulers. Their involvement outside the purview of the royal duties and privileges are already affecting relations with Umno.
I am told by a member of the Umno Supreme Council at one of the KKA sessions that, at a recent meeting of the Umno Political Bureau, chaired by its President (Mohd Najib), this concern was raised.

Rise of Communalism in the Media

Another lunch session, an impromptu one, was held at Seri Kembangan. An irate private sector Malay executive told me that the newspapers – Malays and English – are becoming more communal and sectarian in their contents.
He said, being a Penang born, he was introduced early to The Star. He now feels that many Chinese writers of the MCA-controlled newspaper are anti-Malays. I told him that I know one or two of them because they once worked with me in the New Straits Times.
He said he feels the growing Chinese communalism on a daily basis because he was one of a handful of Malays in an otherwise Chinese-dominated European packaging company.
He may not be wrong. Number one, since the MCA’s dismal performance in the last May general election and its non-participation in the government, The Star has become bolder and less pro-government. Also the paper, like most mainstream newspapers, is fighting to stop readership decline.
Number two, not only Chinese-educated Chinese have become more strident in their political views, as manifested by their wholesale shift to the Pakatan Rakyat/DAP in the last GE, the English-educated, liberal-minded Chinese have also become more communal in their views.
Then again, why should a Penang Malay like him be surprised and upset with the views and actions of the Chinese, when there are liberal Malays who are siding with the church in the ongoing debate and action concerning the exclusive use of Allah by the Muslims in the Peninsula?
On this issue, all KKA sessions were unanimous that the apparent inaction of the Prime Minister and his rather inelegant silence are a cause for concern.
If he believes that his inaction and silence (except to appeal for calm and wait for court decision) will make the issue go away, he is dead wrong.
He cannot “main selamat” (play safe) forever. He has been PM for more than four years and his “main selamat” trademark does not serve him anymore. He should abandon it and start taking position in order to serve the people.
One delegate at a meeting at Killiney Kopitiam in Damansara Utama quipped: “Did the TV not show the PM giving away flat screen TVs to flood victims in Pahang?”
Hmm…., flat screen TV sets to flood victims? What I read in the paper is TV sets were sent to evacuation centres to allow flood victims to follow flood development and get some entertainment.

PM and Ministers Not Communicating Well

As for other issues, I impressed upon the PM’s adviser that in today’s day and age of instantaneous communication and of citizen journalism, leaders must be careful and thoughtful about what they say.
The “kangkung price has fallen but why don’t they praise the government” statement is certainly way out of sync. Not the mark of a thoughtful and concerned leader.  Similarly a minister telling consumers to change their taste by eating fish or beef if chicken is expensive or an Umno leader telling Malaysians to migrate if they are not thankful to the BN for bringing peace and progress to the country. Daft.
The kaki lawak quipped: “Depa mabuk ketum kot.” (High on the sedative effect of the ketum (Mitragyna speciosa) leaf. It seems ketum is good for treatment of anxiety.)
The session with the adviser also agreed that the PM’s plan to empower the Bumiputera economy might not work unless done inclusively within the larger national economy. After all inclusiveness is his clarion call under the New Economic Model.
The Bumiputera portion of the economy is too small to support the Bumiputeras who make up over 60% of the population and who are also the poorest. The GLCs and GLICs are not big enough to support the Bumiputera population.
I repeated my statement to the adviser that the PM should summon all the tycoons – Malays, Chinese and Indians – who had and are still receiving billion-ringgit contracts, concessions, franchises, licences, subsidies and cheap loans from the government to a big meeting akin the disbanded Malaysian Business Council (MBC) of the Mahathir era.
There he tells them that he knows the Chinese did not support the BN in last year’s GE and that they caused the "Tsunami Cina". Unfortunately for them, the BN won thanks to the rural Melayu and the natives of Sarawak and Sabah. Tell them too that he knows some of them have been helping the opposition, unless of course he is ignorant of that fact.
Ask for their help to enhance not only the Bumiputera economy, but also the economy of all poor Malaysians – the bottom 40%. Ask them about the racial composition of their staffing, their supply chain and their CSR activities. Ask them for their plans to make their employment and supply chain truly 1Malaysia instead of communal.

As for the meeting with the menteri, I told him that even the subsidy withdrawal and reduction could be defended and their effects on the rakyat minimised had that been done thoughtfully and in a staggered manner.
The PM should be listening more to crying pain of the people than the market-driven advisers who are spooking him with rating downgrades. An executive of a domestic rating agency told me at one of the KKA sessions that rating agencies are often wrong in their predictions.
 
The government and its mainstream media have failed to explain to the people that subsidy is not sustainable and has to be done away with gradually, giving the market and the consumers the time to adjust.
We had done this in the past and the people understood. But lumping them together at the end and the beginning of the year, when the rakyat needed money for their children’s schooling, is an insensitive.
The meeting with the menteri discussed issues faced by the people and the future of Umno. He said he visited several pasar malam and pasar tani and found that prices were generally stable but the price of kangkung had risen since the PM said its price had fallen by 50%. Maybe traders think its price is too low.
He asked me what I think of the PM’s leadership and his future. I told him, my observation suggests that there are three sets of scenarios. One is for the PM to change and do the right thing to ease the hardship of the people. Two, for him to be removed if he does not change and three, he remains, nothing changes and the BN faces the risk of being thrown out at the next GE.
Finally, a nasi padang lunch in Kampung Baru with two clever Melayu (both economists). One, as I said before, is French-trained. His buddy is LSE-trained. They were the authors of my Kangkung Index.
I asked them if the PM is on the right track in managing the economy and what will his deficit reducing and debt curbing policy do to the economy?
They both proclaimed themselves Keynesians and said at the current 4% to 5% per annum GDP growth, the economy is on autopilot. It does not require a lot of government interference.
As Keynesians, they told me the role of the government is to take care of the welfare of the people via economic growth, employment and wealth creation.
Constricting government expenditure and at the same time limiting private consumption via higher consumer prices will not contribute towards higher growth, more jobs and greater wealth.
What will then happen to the jobseekers and the people who survive on the fringes of the economy?
It is understood that unemployed Bumiputera graduates alone now stands at around 51,000 representing an increase of 30% since 2009 – the year Mohd Najib became PM.
So should we not be worried? As for me, I am totally disgusted that almost half of cabinet members were abroad during the year-end, when thousands were flooded out of their homes?
I was told that those ministers who stayed back had to become caretakers to multiple portfolios. One had to be answerable to more than 10 ministries at a time. No wonder the PMO was so secretive about the PM’s whereabouts.
Can they PLEASE not do this ever again? Or they just don't care.
Wallahuaklam.

Awas: Kopi najis gajah di utara Thailand (6 gambar)


ISTERI seorang pengembala gajah mengambil biji kopi daripada najis haiwan itu.



BANGKOK - Kira-kira 20 ekor gajah mengeluarkan najis yang mengandungi biji kopi di sebuah pusat pemuliharaan haiwan itu di wilayah Chiang Rai, utara Thailand.

Gajah-gajah itu diberikan makan biji kopi yang kemudian dikeluarkan bersama najis haiwan tersebut. 

 Black Ivory coffee is now one of the world's most expensive varieties costing $1,100 (£685) per kilogram. Thai women collect the dung in Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand. before sifting through for beans


Biji kopi itu dijual pada harga AS$1,100 (RM3,361) bagi setiap satu kilogram (kg) yang merupakan antara yang termahal di dunia. 

Kopi yang dihasilkan daripada najis haiwan itu dikenali sebagai Black Ivory.

 Elephants digest the are fed coffee cherries before they are collected in their dung. The animal's digestive process is said to give the beans their unique flavour
 

Beberapa hotel mewah di dunia menawarkan minuman tersebut kepada para pelanggan pada bulan lalu yang bermula di utara Thailand diikuti Maldives dan kini Emiriyah Arab Bersatu.

Harga untuk secawan kopi itu ialah AS$50 (RM152.77).

 Canadian Blake Dinkin, 41, spent $300,000 developing the production process. He said the first batch of the coffee has all been sold


"Apabila seekor gajah memakan biji kopi, perut haiwan itu menguraikan protein yang terdapat pada kopi yang menjadi punca utama ia menjadi pahit," kata Blake Dinkin yang membelanjakan AS$300,000 (RM916,649) untuk memajukan penghasilan kopi tersebut.

Sebelum mengemukakan cadangan kepada Yayasan Gajah Segi Tiga Emas yang mengendalikan pusat pemuliharaan itu, Dinkin menyatakan dia bekerjasama dengan seorang pakar haiwan yang berpangkalan di Kanada untuk melakukan ujian darah di beberapa zoo gajah.

Ujian itu menunjukkan gajah-gajah berkenaan tidak menyerap sebarang bahan kafeina kerana memakan biji kopi.

Menurutnya, gajah memakan 33kg biji kopi untuk menghasilkan 1kg kopi Black Ivory.

"Rasa kopi itu menakjubkan," kata isteri seorang warga Amerika Syarikat, Asleigh Nelson di sebuah hotel.

-PETANDA YANG KURANG BAIK BUAT BAKAL CALON TUPONG DAP 

ABDUL AZIZ ISA A.K.A "AJIS TANGGANG" APABILA CERAMAHNYA 

HANYA DIHADIRI OLEH KURANG DARI 30 ORANG! JENAKA LAH KO TOK 

JIS! KEKEKE!!!-


Mana ratusan penyokong-penyokong DAP baru sepertimana yang didakwa oleh Aziz di dalam status Facebook saban hari yang "berebut-rebut" mendaftar diri mereka menjadi ahli DAP Tupong? Kau tipu ya Jis? Kau syok sendiri ya Jis?

Sedangkan Matang itu adalah kawasan dimana letaknya Pusat Khidmat DAP Tupong yang diselaras oleh Ajis sendiri. 

Memalukan betul aksi si Ajis yang "menumpang" pada Ceramah PAS berceramah dihadapan kurang dari 30 hadirin (campur dengan ahli-ahli sukarelawan pembangkang sendiri) di Matang, Petra Jaya semalam.

Rupanya kau tak sepopular yang kau sangkakan ya Ajis? Betul-betul menghabiskan beras dan tak balik modal belanja untuk promosi, persiapan ceramah tu kan?

PERKASA Kesal Filem anak Rosmah banyak adengan lucah..


PERKASA melahirkan rasa kesal kerana banyak adegan lucah dipaparkan dalam filem The Wolf of Wall Street yang dilapor diterbitkan syarikat yang diasaskan rakyat Malaysia Riza Aziz.

Setiausaha Agungnya Syed Hasan Syed Ali berkata kejayaan di peringkat global tidak bermaksud perlu menurut rencah negara Barat.

"Jika benarlah filem ini diterbitkan orang orang Melayu, PERKASA rasa sangat sedih. Di sini bila Melayu bermakna ia Islam. PERKASA hairan mengapa orang Islam tergamak buat filem yang banyak adengan-adegan lucah dalamnya.

"Jangan ajak kami umat Islam negara ini terima segala apa sahaja yang global. Kita disaran supaya maju dalam negara dan menerokai hingga peringkat antarabangsa dengan jayanya," kata beliau dalam SMS kepada Malaysiakini.

Beliau berkata demikian bagi mengulas keputusan kerajaan mengharamkan tayangan filem itu baru-baru ini.

Riza dikatakan anak kepada isteri Perdana Menteri Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor bersama bekas suami pertamanya yang sebelum ini dilaporkan membeli satu unit kondominium mewah berharga RM 100 juta di New York.

Akhbar Daily Mail melaporkan negara UAE telah memotong satu pertiga filem tersebut lantaran aksi lucah serta dialog mengandungi perkataan kurang sopan diucapkan yang tidak bersesuaian dengan budaya Timur Tengah.

Pengkritik filem turut menyatakan filem yang keterlaluan mengangkat citra ‘dadah, seks dan wang' itu turut merakamkan lebih 500 kali penggunaan perkataan lucah dan kurang sopan.

Justeru Syed Hasan berkata, PERKASA menyokong pengharaman filem kerana ia pastinya dilakukan dengan teliti oleh pihak berwajib negara.

"Negara ini bukan negara yang mudah mahu mengharamkan sesuatu perkara terutama filem luar tetapi semua filem luar perlu faham tapisan sesebuah filem perlu dilakukan sebelum dibenarkan ditayangkan.  

"Difahamkan filem tersebut terlalu banyak adegan-adegan lucah dan ia tidak sesuai sekali ditayangkan di panggung-panggung di negara ini," kata beliau ~ Malaysiakini

No Excuse Is Better Than Bad One

THIS is no gaffe, no faux pas. This is the King's order:

"The word Allah is exclusively for Muslims. Non-Muslims must respect this and are banned from using the world." - The Star.

I say: "Charge those who disobey, non-Muslims and Muslims, with treason." Period.

The government should stop making excuses.

ORIGINAL POST 

AS world leaders have found out, they do not have to employ billion-ringgit international advisers and scriptwriters to come out with memorable quotes.

Many were made famous by gaffes than well-planned and well thought out quotes and words of wisdom.

Well before our Prime Minister, Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, became world famous (picked by world media) by asking “why don’t they thank the government now that kangkung prices have fallen?” other world leaders had also became famous with their faux pas.

Among them:

US President George H. W. Bush (Bush Senior):

“I do not like broccoli, and I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States, and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.”

He was laughed at as well as criticised because broccoli (like kangkung) is rich in vitamins and Western parents make a point of feeding it to their children. Children don’t like it.

My mom and dad were too poor and ignorant to be introduced to broccoli, but thanks to our past leaders who developed this country, most us can now afford and enjoy broccoli.

President Ronald Reagan (like our dear Pak Lah) was famous for falling asleep at meetings and functions. Being a film star that he was, he joked about it:

“I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of a national emergency, even if I’m in a cabinet meeting.”

With political leaders being increasingly accused of breaking the law, the saying by Richard Nixon might be a source of false assurance. He said:

“When the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.”

He was wrong. Nixon was found guilty of the Watergate break-in scandal and resigned in 1974 rather than facing impeachment.

The fortunes (and misfortunes) of world leaders, past and present, are caused by the things their wives say and do.

The most famous (or infamous) was that of Marie Antoinette, the consort of the last King of France, Louis XVI.

The story (not necessarily history) has it that when told that the people had no bread to eat, Marie Antoinette supposedly replied: “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche.” (Let them eat cake.)

For her extravagance and insensitivity, she and Louis paid with their heads, literally. They were executed using the guillotine in 1793, a year after the French republic was proclaimed.

The famous French writer, Jean-Jacque Rousseau, wrote:

Enfin je me rappelai le pis-aller d’une grande princesse à qui l’on disait que les paysans n’avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit : Qu’ils mangent de la brioche.”

(Finally I recalled the stopgap solution of a great princess who was told that the peasants had no bread, and who responded: "Let them eat brioche (cake).")

Paid a heavy price for dismissing the people
But Rousseau's assertion was disputed by Zhu Muzhi, president of the China Society for Human Rights Studies, that the French writer’s version was an alteration of a much older anecdote:

"An ancient Chinese emperor who, being told that his subjects didn't have enough rice to eat, replied, 'Why don't they eat meat?'"

It was attributed to Emperor Hui of the Jin Dynasty, who was “developmentally disabled" and died of premeditated poisoning.

Back home in “modern” Malaysia, a minister was recently quoted as saying: “...if chicken is expensive, change your taste, eat fish and meat instead.”

No need to humour that minister by mentioning his name. The man could be so out of touch with reality that he didn’t know beef is more expensive than chicken?

And before more Malaysian leaders put their foot in their mouth, causing disgust and shame to all of us, may I quote a gem from President George Washington, the first President of the United States, as a reminder? He said:

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.”

Wallahuaklam.

Penans want to move at own pace in development

One aspect of Penans’ cultural practices is their "agricultural practice" or the lack of it, in the common efforts to bring them to the mainstream of development, which may take a much longer time.  The Penans like the rest of other communities want to move forward into the modern world; but move at their own pace. It will take at least one generation for them to move from hunters/gatherers to the era of sedentary farming.


Penans are not sedentary farmers. They do not cultivate in manners of other ethnic groups. They do not cut and clear large areas of forested land before they plant crops on them.  Being hunters/gatherers the Penans need pristine jungle and forest to survive as they have done for generations.


From the forest, they get their meat, from the river they get their fish and from the trees and plants they get their vegetable and jungle produce, for their daily needs as well as for their economic necessity. All their needs are from the forest.  In short, the jungle is their supermarket. 
The way of life that Bruno Manser wants to preserve for the Penan

Consequently, they take great care of the jungle as their supermarket. Thus, they need the forests to remain intact to ensure their survival. Out of such necessity, the Penans become the best conservationist of jungles.  Thus, it is their view that the felling of jungle and trees must bediscouraged.  


In principle, the Penans do not clear the jungle to survive. They keep it intact to live. They do not possess land holding as prescribed under the local Land law as other ethnic groups do.  They do not have or very little land to their names. Therefore, the Penans including those residing in Murum area are at a great disadvantage that the local land laws are used as the benchmark to determine land holding among the people.


There are 1,352 Penans who are affected by the construction of Murum dam.  The number may be small but they are constantly hogging the printed as well as the electronic media, and at time, does not put Sarawak in a very good light among the international communities.


Obviously, the semi nomadic Penans are the darlings of the west. In their eyes, the semi nomadic Penans can do NO wrong. Therefore, it is important for all concerned, the implementers of development projects in particular, to understand the cultural nuances of the Penans, who haveand will be affected by development projects especially in the construction of Hydroelectricity Project (HEP).


The Minister of Land Development, Tan Sri Dato Seri Dr. James Jemut Masing, in his winding speech on the debate of Budget 2013, however, says it will be wrong to keep them in the forest forever. It will take time for the mind set to shift from one era to the next one.He proposes a new approach has to be adopted for big development projects that affect the people in the future to ensure that the can be carried with less problems. The new approach with human touch should become the way forward for Sarawak.Tan Sri Dr. Masing, an anthropologist by training, says it is for this reason that about 30,000 hectares of forested land are reserved for the Penans within the Murum reservoir for the elder Penans to hunt and forage. They are given a choice to live a life which they want: the old or the new. This new step can be called it a development practices with Human Touch.


Besides, schools and modern amenities are built for them, in a settlement, which is three times better than their original settlements, in Murum to embrace modern living.He says the New Concept of Development of NCR lands, launched by the State Government in mid-90s, have the primary objective to uplift the standards of living of the land owners in rural areas. They also aim to enhance the market value of NCR land through joint venture development with private sector companies. 
Tegulang Resettlement Site : Clean and treated water was one of the immediate benefits enjoyed at the settlement
Tegulang at night
In principle, the development of NCR land is strictly on voluntary basis. The landowners have the option either to participate or not in the project. The Government has always been sensitive and constantly on the lookout for ways to address issues relating to its implementation of the new concept of land development on NCR land. For example, the Ministry of Land Development has approved a new NCR land development model or the Management Model which was proposed during a special workshop conducted on it; some land owners were brought in for consultation during the work.


Basically, the development of NCR land in the rural areas means two things. First, it increases its potential earning through the cultivation of cash crops. Second, it provides accessibility through construction of access roads. These would automatically appreciate the value of the land. This is quite similar to the urban or sub-urban land which is converted into commercial or residential development.Thus, once large scale development is undertaken in these areas, a landowner is basically sitting on a piece of a highly valuable asset. Cumulatively, this could make the land-rich Dayaks potentially quite well-off.


The Dayaks are rich with land but among the poorest in the country.  They are rich in land but poor in resources. Therefore, the state Government has formulated various plans and programs to develop NCR land in order to improve the economic well-being of the rural Dayak community.


The major initiative in the program is the cultivation of cash crops through development of large scale plantations and mini estates, with the involvement of the private investors based on joint venture concept.


Additionally, there are plans to develop NCR land for cultivation of oil palm and rubber under Agropolitan Concept of Development. For smallholders, there is also some assistance provided by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB).


Regrettably, some people still have the misconception about the benefit or the lack of it from the development of NCR land under the joint-venture concept. They see the benefits only from the point of view of the dividend derived from it. This outlook is from a very narrow perspective. The broader perspective is to look at it from the enhanced value of the land after its development.  


Therefore, Dayak must endeavor to convert their vast land holding to monetary wealth by planting cash crops in them; suspicion on Government plans and negative thinking will not benefit the Dayak Communities.


As at 30th June, 2012, to a total of 181,106 hectares from 173,483 hectares recorded on 31st December, 2011,of NCR lands have been opened up oil palm plantation.  This of course, does not include areas cultivated by private and enterprising individuals, and those who are receiving direct assistance by the government.


Admittedly, Development of NCR land has its challenges. However, they should not dampen the resolve to develop NCR land in a more profitable manner to the landowners.For example, there have been some unfortunate cases where some NCR landowners are reluctant to participate in the perimeter survey to such an extent that they prevent survey teams from entering their land. Some individuals allege that work to survey there is a ploy to take away their land.  Of course, this is not true.


Tan Sri Sri Masing advises landowners, who have disputes among them, should explore amicable solutions, as the first option, so as not to impede the exercise and good intention of the government. They should allow the exercise to go on and make appeal about their grouses to Land and Survey Department for it to make proper investigations of their complaints. 


He says the native landowners can develop their NCR land free of encumbrances once the perimeter survey has been and the land gazette.  In this respect, elected representatives of the people should find it necessary to convince landowners to allow perimeter survey to proceed smoothly.x

[SIRI KRISTIAN MALAYSIA] Orang Arab Kristian Pun Sebut “Allah” …Apa Masalah?


Orang-orang Arab Kristian pun sebut “Allah” … itulah yang selalu kita dengar hujah mereka yang beriya sangat hendak memberi orang Kristian di Malaysia guna nama suci Allah.

“Kenapa kita nak sekat?”, tanya mereka.

Jawab saya mudah sahaja. Puak-puak Kristian di Malaysia yang nak guna sangat nama suci Allah tu mereka bercakap dalam bahasa Arab atau bahasa Melayu?

Dalam bahasa Melayu, istilah yang puak Kristian nak guna kalimah Allah itu adalah terjemahan dari istilah Inggeris, iaitu “God” atau “Lord”. Maka dalam bahasa Melayu, terjemahan untuk istilah “God” ialah “Tuhan”. Bukan “Allah”.

Selalunya hujah mereka kemudian merujuk pula kepada Indonesia. “Habis di Indonesia, mereka semua sebut Tuhan “Allah”. Tak ada masalah pun”

Saya jawab:

Betul. Memang tidak ada masalah … kalau di Indonesia. Tuan bercakap pasal nak guna kalimah Allah di Malaysia. Bukan di Indonesia.

Indonesia guna Allah

Kalau itu hendak digunakan sebagai hujah maka kenapa tidak kita sebut “mobil” untuk “kereta”?

Kenapa kita terjemah “car” kepada “kereta” bukan “mobil”? Ianya kerana di Malaysia, “Mobil” itu tempat kita pergi isi minyak kereta. (… dah tukar pun namanya …)

Kalau saya mempunyai kenalan dari Indonesia yang datang berkunjung ke rumah saya di kampong dan menyanyakan “Bapak boleh bagikan saya jeruk?”, dengan syukur saya lantas ke dapur mencari balang berisi jeruk pauh yang baru dibuat isteri saya minggu lepas.

Apabila dihidangnya, tetamu saya kehairanan!

“Bapak, saya mahu jeruk yang di luar ….” barulah saya teringat rupanya orang Indonesia panggil buah oren/limau dengan istilah berbeza … “jeruk”. Tetamu saya mahu buah oren dari pokok saya di tepi pintu pagar yang sedang ranum!

Di Indonesia mereka guna istilah mereka. Di Malaysia kita guna istilah kita. Kita ada institusi seperti Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. Maka kita ikutlah tatabahasa peristilahan yang telah ditetapkan.

Kalau nak berbahasa Indonesia … nah pergi (BERAMBUS) aja ke sana!

Melayu !!!!! Sampai Bila Nak Berdiam Diri?





Jan 15, 2014

Kangkung Oh Kangkung VS Kangkang Oh Kangkang

Macam macam hal pasal kangkung ni, ku persembahkan kepada kalian kidah kangkung versi KUNYIT!

Ekonomi Pulau Pinang, Dimanakah Melayu?



Hanya segelintir Melayu yang berjaya kat Penang. Memang hangpa yang baca entry ni akan kata aku merapu. Tapi itulah hakikatnya. Di Penang, operator kilang kebanyakkannya indon, nepal, burma...Melayu kalau yang perempuan jadi salesgirl. Berapa kerat je yang jadi operator. Doktor? Ada la jugak. Tapi depa tu pun kerja dengan kerajaan. Kalau kerja sendiri, tak ramai pun.
Lelaki pulak? Technician. Paling tinggi engineer. Manager kilang dan ke atas? Semuanya keturunan dan seangkatan Guan Eng mulut barai tu.

Kalau hangpa nak tau, Guan Eng serta orang cina yang lain dah rancang elok dah nak singkirkan melayu dari penang. mungkin hangpa semua tak perasan. kalau tengok dari segi jawatan tertinggi, semua geng cina yang pegang. kuli batak semua melayu + india. Bangga ke?

peraturan syarikat high-profile yang dikuasai cina- melayu tak boleh jadi ahli eksekutif. melayu suka ek (act) sangat.

sebagai contoh, hotel equatorial. aku pi makan minggu lepas kat hotel ni. aku sembang dengan salah sorang staf kat situ. dia sembang pun takut2 je.

kata dia, budak melayu yang masuk keje situ semua kena mula dari bawah walaupun ada kelulusan tinggi. tapi kalau budak cina, lepasa spm pun dah boleh jadi pangkat tinggi. MELAYU KERJA DAH HAMPIR 20 TAHUN - cukuplah sekadar kerani cabuk. receiving semua melayu buat. kos cina buat. manager baru masuk pun orang cina jugak. baru masuk 1 minggu dah enjoy katak guna harta hotel. kalau melayu mesti dah kena buang kerja, tapi sebab dia cina, maka pejam mata je.

itu adalah salah satu senario masa kini.

awat lagu ni?

sebab penguatkuasaan negara kita tak kuat. aku rasa lepas ni semua pelabur kat malaysia, setiap syarikat kena letak 30% at least bumiputra kat exec level and above. baru fair. Malaysia memang asalnya kerajaan melayu. siapa nak menyangkal, boleh keluar dari malaysia. sila patahkan ic anda dan berambus. take it or leave it. kenapa kami orang melayu boleh je bertolak ansur u olls org cina masuk matrikulasi segala bagai, takkan mengenai periuk nasi korang nak berkira. sharing is caring

aku tak kata cina jahat. tapi cina pandai ambil peluang. tu je. dan cina paling kuat main kroni2 segala bagai. dun deny!

melayu jangan tido dah la. hari tu guan eng boleh smash and kutuk johor begitu saja. tak mustahil kalau kita orang penang dihalau macam tu je.

kepada kerajaan malaysia, takkan nak diam je dengan nasib melayu kat penang?
