I could not have known that when I first met my wife many many years ago in Tiffany  - a disco in London - that forty years later that these two little girls - Isabel and Sofie (our grand daughters) would be one of the results of that meeting. We have endured much in our life together - no more, I am sure - than many of you have also endured. Today as I contemplate the past I now know that so many things that was once so important in our life are no longer important. So many things that we thought we would never forget are now distant and at times fading memories. There were times when we doubted our ability to see through the hard times we have had and yet there were times when the good times makes us forget the bad....but always we have seen it through together. We could have done with a bit more money, with a bit more of the good times, a bit less time apart from each other and of course more time with our children Zack and Terrina but in all we have had a good life....and looking at Isabel and Sofie we know why we had met each other in London many many years ago.    

Dr Siti Hasmah - Our Gracious First Lady singing Gubahanku.

My eyes filled with tears of happiness and joy when I listened to this gracious lady singing Broey's Gubahanku. This is our First lady! In the real sense of the word! I remember her joy when her Malaysian Badminton Team won back the Thomas Cup for Malaysia at Stadium Negara way past midnight on May 16th 1992 after a drought of 25 years! We last won it in Jakarta in 1967 - one of those times when we were all Malaysian! Unforgetable! 

Thank you also to Elyas Omar and the late great Punch Gunalan and Rashid Sidek, Foo Kok Keong, Kwan Yoke Meng, Razif Sidek, Jalani Sidek (Jack!), Cheah Soon Kit, Soo Beng Kiang, Rahman Sidek and Wong Ewee Mun and their coaches from China too Han Jian, Chen Changjie and Yang Yang. 

Siti Hasmah for all that you have done for Malaysia and for the people of Malaysia we all love you....Terima Kasih.

When I woke up yesterday at around 6 am, Julia Gillard was Prime Minister of Australia. As I went to sleep last night at around 11 pm, she has resigned her commission and Kevin Rudd became Prime Minister of Australia. In the seven hours, from the time Julia Gillard announced her intentions to put her position as leader of the Labor party against Kevin Rudd to a vote by her peers, I was witness, in real time, to the process of how political change was affected in Australia. How it was all done reflected the maturity of a nation that has all the checks and balances and the structures necessary to ensure that when change needs to be effected within the political system, it is done in the most economical manner. No waiting for a year for an outgoing Prime Minister to leave at a time of his own choosing! By this morning at 9.30 am, Australia had a new Prime Minister, a new Deputy Prime Minister and a new Treasurer – and the new leader of the Senate is Penny Wong, a Malaysian born in Kota Kinabalu, a lesbian and now an Australian. That is Australia for you.

Just over a month in office as Prime Minister of Malaysia where is Najib now? For starters I see that he has appointed Shahidan Kassim as a Minister in the Prime Minister’s department! WHY?

And today I see that Shahidan has been selected as the 2012 Sports For All (Asus) Personality winning a RM$20,000 cash award , trophy and appreciation plaque presented by KJ –the Youth and Sports Minister. WHY?

This is the same KJ whose father in law was once Prime Minister – the same Prime Minister under whose tenure Shahidan lost his Perlis Menteri Bersar’s post. (Read my previous article to know why Shahidan lost the MB’s post). 

To be blunt, Shahidan is a corrupt, womanizing politician with at least one child conceived out of wedlock and is responsible for at least two aborted pregnancies with young, Malay girls barely out of their teens and many many dalliances with other young Malay girls outside his marriage. 

So pray tell us Najib why you choose to overlook his sordid past?

Shahidan is BN’s deputy whip

Speaker Padikar Amin confirms Anwar Ibrahim as Opposition Leader.
PETALING JAYA: Minister in charge of parliamentary affairs Shahidan Kassim is Barisan Nasional’s new deputy whip, replacing Nazri Abdul Aziz, who is now the Culture and Tourism Minister.
By the ruling coalition’s convention, the deputy prime minister automatically becomes BN’s whip chief, whose main task is to ensure that backbenchers toe the party line and support all bills the government tables in Parliament.
Those who disobey the party whip face action from the party leadership. This was what happened to former MIC vice president S Sothinathan in 2005.
Sothinathan, who was then a deputy minister, was suspended from his duties for three months after he breached a party directive by criticising the government’s decision to withdraw its recognition of Crimea State Medical University.
PAS, PKR and DAP each has its own whip chief, but Pakatan Rakyat as a group does not.
PAS’s whip chief is party vice president Mahfuz Omar and PKR’s is its deputy president, Azmin Ali. DAP has appointed its national organising secretary, Anthony Loke, as its whip chief to replace Kepong MP Tan Seng Giaw.
PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim has been reappointed Opposition Leader although DAP won more seats in the last election than any other opposition party.
In confirming Anwar’s appointment, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia said the PKR leader had received unanimous support from Pakatan MPs.
“Based on the feedback I received, I am satisfied that Anwar Ibrahim received the unanimous support of the opposition members of parliament in the Dewan Rakyat for the post of opposition leader,” Pandikar said.
Anwar’s appointment to the post was foreshadowed on the day after the May 5 general election, when DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang announced that his party would support his candidacy.
Pakatan parties won 89 of the 222 seats in the Dewan Rakyat. DAP won 38, PKR 30 and PAS 21.

The Ugly Malaysian: Shahidan Kassim

Shahidan Kassim was MB of Perlis from 1995 to 2008. During that time he fathered at least one child out of wedlock fornicated with many teenage Malay girls from Perlis and impregnated at least two Malay girls who had abortions to abort his child.He considered himself such a Lothario that he was not beyond having a quickie while on his exercise runs in and around Perlis in the evening. He was no slouch when it comes to making money too. A self styled UMNO warlord he was ultimately left high and dry by Barisan Nasional  members of the Perlis State Assembly who had grown tired of his sexual and ego seeking political shenanigans! He was always eager to “come down” to KL for the sake of the party and to meet with the party faithful on matters of national interest after which he would pursue matters of personal interest with his under aged mistresses. I myself have seen his car at Bangsar Permai in Jalan Tandok Bangsar a number of time. Whether it is there to pick up his children or this under-aged mistress is for him to tell us. He is still fuming that UMNO has forgotten his “services” in the front line against the Sultan of Johore during the “Mahathir fight Sultan” era. Now days he is left to amuse himself with the wealth he had accumulated while in office.... go play with yourself Shahidan!

New Labor leader Kevin Rudd says the negativity and destructive politics at the federal level must stop.
Mr Rudd said politics in recent times had "failed the Australian people" and he was driven by a need to secure the nation's future.
"I simply do not have it in my nature to stand idly by and allow an Abbott government to come to power in this country by default," he said.
"I recognise that Mr Abbott is a man steeped in the power of negative politics and he is formidable at negative politics.
"But I see no evidence of a real positive plan for our country's future."
Mr Rudd also thanked outgoing treasurer Wayne Swan for his contribution to the government.
He said he had worked "intimately" with Mr Swan in 2008-2009 to prevent the country from rolling into the global economic recession.
"So Wayne, whatever our differences have been, I acknowledge that contribution here as part of that team which kept us out of global catastrophe," Mr Rudd said.
New Labor deputy leader Anthony Albanese said he had a big job to do.
"I will do it with enthusiasm, passion and commitment and give my all for the cause of Labor," he said, standing side by side with Mr Rudd.
"It is only Labor governments, I believe, that can truly serve the long term interests of the nation."
Mr Albanese said on Wednesday night the party had maximised its chances of going into a third term of a Labor government.
He paid tribute to Ms Gillard and Mr Swan for their achievements and for their efforts in ensuring Labor was able to govern since the hung parliament in 2010.
Mr Rudd issued a call to Australia's youth, many of whom he said had shunned an interest in the nation's political system.
"I understand why you've switched off, it's hardly a surprise," he said.
"But I want to ask you to please come back and
listen afresh.
"We need you, we need your energy, we need your ideas, we need your enthusiasm and we need you to support us in the great challenges which lie ahead for the country.
"And with your energy, we can start cooking with gas."
Mr Rudd said that he and Mr Albanese had been briefed by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
"We will begin our briefings as appropriate in the next several days on the budget and the economic outlook and on a range of other international matters that lie before us," he said.
As to when he would be sworn in as prime minister, Mr Rudd said he would await advice.
"We will await the Governor-General on that matter," he said.

Border statement 26th June 2013


JAWI and BORDERS - an excercise in futility if not stupidity!

1) On 22/3/13, Borders won JR. Civil High Court declared Jawi's action bad
and s.13 unconstitutional;

2) We have served Order on JAWI and the Ministers and have been writing to
them evry fortnightly to withdraw the charge as it is unconstitutional. Not
a single reply;

3) we have also written to Syariah Court to say court can discharge not
amounting to acquittal as there is no basis now to proceed. Also no reply;

4) AG has filed appeal;

5) AG also now seeking Stay. The application for stay is base. Did not state
any ground why they want a stay except that it is vs public interest;

6) How can releasing an innocent be vs public interest? Why keep charge
hanging over Nik's head?;

7) In on going Altantuya appeal case, AG did not ask for Stay. AG did not
appeal vs Razak Baginda's acquittal;

8) Is Nik's crime more serious than Razak's murder complicity? Where is
justice and why selective prosecution by AG?

Is JAWI desperate? Why?  

2.       Please find attached the following documents:
a)    Respondents’ Submission in applying for Stay of the Order dated 22.3.2013; and
b)    Applicants’ Submission in opposing the Respondents’ Stay application.
3.     The hearing is fixed tomorrow at Kuala Lumpur High Court Rayuan dan Kuasa-kuasa Khas 2, 5th     Floor, Right Wing, 9:00 a.m. before Yang Arif Dato’ Zaleha Bt Yusof.

cakap cakap...angry Aussie writes to his Minister of Immigration.

steadyaku47 comment: This was forwarded to me. Its letter written by an irate Aussie to the Minister of Immigration at the Department of Foreign Affairs....aiyah this guy really upset one! Have a nice weekend!  


I think the sender might have been upset!

This is an actual letter sent to the DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) Immigration Minister.  The Government tried desperately to censure the author, but got nowhere because every legal person who read it could not stop laughing ! 

Dear Mr Minister, 

I'm in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this. 

How is it that K-Mart has my address and telephone number, and knows that I bought a television set and golf clubs and condoms from them back in 1997, and yet the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born 
and on what date ? 

For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand ? 

My birth date you have in my Medicare information, and it is on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 40 years. 

It is also on my driver's licence, on the last eight passports I've ever had, on all those stupid customs declaration forms I've had to fill out before being allowed off planes
over the past 30 years. 

It's also on all those insufferable census forms that I've filled out every 5 years since 1966. 

Also... would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother's name is Audrey, my father's name is Jack, and I'd be absolutely bloody astounded if that ever 
changed between now and when I drop dead !!! 

SHIT! What do you people do with all this information we keep having to provide? 

I apologize, Mr. Minister. But I'm really pissed off this morning.

Between you and me, I've had enough of all this bullshit! 
You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my bloody address! 

What the hell is going on with your mob? Have you got a gang of mindless Neanderthal arseholes working there! 

And another thing, look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I can't even grow a beard for God's sakes. I just want to go to New Zealand and see my new granddaughter.  (Yes, my son interbred with a Kiwi girl).  And would someone please tell me, why would you give a shit whether or not I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? In the unlikely event I ever got the urge to do something weird to a sheep or a horse, believe you me, I'd sure as hell not want to tell anyone! 

Well, I have to go now, 'cause I have to go to the other side of Sydney , and get another bloody copy of my birth certificate - and to part with another $80 for the privilege of accessing MY OWN INFORMATION! 

Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot, to assist in the issuance of a new passport on the same day? 

Nooooo! That'd be too bloody easy and makes far too much sense. 

You would much prefer to have us running all over the bloody place like chickens with our heads cut off, and then having to find some 'high-society' wanker to confirm that it's really me in the goddamn photo! You know the photo... the one where we're not allowed to smile? bloody morons. 

Signed - An Irate Australian Citizen. 

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture, and getting someone in 'high-society' to confirm that it's me?                                                                               
Well, my family has been in this country since before 1820! In 1856, one of my forefathers took up arms with Peter Lalor.  (You do remember the Eureka Stockade!) 

I have also served in both the CMF and regular Army for something over 30 years (I went to Vietnam in 1967), and still have high security clearances. I'm also a personal friend of the president of the RSL....Lt General Peter Cosgrove sends me a Christmas card each year. 

However, your rules require that I have to get someone "important" to verify who I am; you know...someone like my doctor - WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN BLOODY PAKISTAN!...a country where they either assassinate or hang their ex-Prime Ministers - and are suspended from 
the Commonwealth and United Nations for not having the "right sort of government".. 

You are all pen-pushing paper-shuffling bloody idiots!
