Hearing-impaired girl’s call for help heard loud and clear

Friday April 30, 2010

Hearing-impaired girl’s call for help heard loud and clear

GEORGE TOWN: Eight-year-old Chai Yin Zhi’s call for help was heard loud and clear by Malaysians, and in just nine hours, they pledged a total of RM70,000 as they rallied around the schoolgirl who needs the money to undergo a cochlear implant.
Among the donors were two elderly men who turned up at her school to give RM100 each. They had received the money under the state’s senior citizens appreciation programme.
Reason to smile: Tham sharing a light moment with Yin Zhi.
The response was so good that SJK(C) Convent Datuk Keramat headmistress Koay Gim Ai had to stop the fund-raising at about 3.30pm yesterday when it hit the target.
“There have been so many calls, I’ve not had time to have lunch,” she said, adding that the office phone had been ringing non-stop even before the school opened at 7.30am.
Koay said the two senior citizens were among five people who walked in to hand over cash and cheques while the callers were from as far as Sarawak, Kuala Lumpur, Klang and Perak, pledging sums ranging from RM100 to several thousand ringgit.
Yin Zhi, who suffers from profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears, has said nothing to teachers or classmates since entering school in Year One and is encountering serious learning challenges due to her disability.
In an effort to fund her RM110,000 surgery that will enable her to hear, the school board, parent-teacher association and ex-pupils’ association launched a fund-raising drive and managed to collect RM40,000 before the case was highlighted by the media yesterday.
When contacted, Yin Zhi’s father Chai Ming Teck, 40, said his family was overwhelmed with the news and was already trying to book a date for the surgery at the Loh Guan Lye Specialist Centre.
“There are so many things happening in the world, but this makes me believe people are capable of so much love.
“I am thankful to the school and public, and from now on, I will do my best to give back and contribute to the school and everyone in society,” said the 40-year-old sales executive.

Malaysia may be forced to disclose the sale-of-two-Scorpene deal details

exclusive NGO counsel all set to rope in aid of international law force our officials to cough up information on kickbacks handed out.

Joseph Brehem, one of the French lawyers who is suing French shipbuilder DCN on behalf of human rights NGO Suaram, may apply for an 'international warrant of search' to induce Malaysian officials to disclose information needed to solve the alleged corruption case involving the sale of two Scorpene submarines made by  DCN and kickbacks received by certain individuals.

Brehem, on a two- day visit to gather more information on the case, said he could apply for Perimekar, the company owned by the wife of Abdul Razak Baginda, a close associate of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, to reveal its accounts and explain how it obtained Euro114mil for doing nothing but "administrative" work.

Umno started 'racism' first, followed by MIC, then MCA but all started in 40s!

Starting para:
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today waded into the war of words between the MCA and Perkasa, telling his Barisan Nasional ally to rid itself of “extremist Chinese” before demanding Umno reject the Malay right-wing group.
Ending para:
The Malay rights leader also demanded the Chinese voters be “grateful” for the donation and suggested that the Chinese may have been promised more than the Malays of Hulu Selangor.
Firstly, Dr M admitted that Umno is a 'racist' party but Umno is weak. So, enter Perkasa. Then, MIC weak. Enter Hindraf...MCA??? MCA is a SELFish party. It is supposed to fight for Chinese but it is SELF-serving! 
One thing is certain: Extremism will never end as long as 'racist' Umno-led BN government is around.

AG TO THE RESCUE! AG OUT TO DEFEND 'THE LIAR'! TBH inquest: Coroner allows AG's intervention

UPDATED 7.01PM The AG can now intervene in the application by Teoh Beng Hock's brother, Meng Kee, to cite Nazri Abdul Aziz for contempt.
Following today's decision, Meng Kee's motion is back to square one as initially what was supposed to be an ex-parte (one party) application has become an inter-parte (more than one) matter. Also, Karpal would again have to submit on why leave (permission) should be granted by the court to initiate contempt proceedings against Nazri.


I consider myself a Malaysian Chinese. In fact, I am a Malaysian Chinese. I am Malaysian first, Chinese second.

If I trace back my roots, I am a Chinese. My great grandparents and grandparents came from China, died and buried somewhere in the suburban of KL So what?

Who cares about being Chinese? Who cares for the Chinese? MCA? HAHAHAHA...Balik negara Cina lah! Then, you can truly fight for the real Chinese! Let me tell you, China don't even care about the Chinese in Malaysia! And you want to fight for the Chinese here? Balik kampung lah!

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the citizenship of non-Malays in the country should never be questioned.

Yes, I am a citizen of Malaysia. Malaysia is my home, not China.

Special panel to investigate fatal shooting of youth


KAJANG: The Home Ministry is setting up a special panel to carry out a thorough probe into the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old youth, who was believed to be a member of a robbery gang, early on Monday morning at Section 11, Shah Alam, Selangor.

Its minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, said the special panel would be headed by his deputy, Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop, to determine what had actually prompted the shooting.

He said the probe would cover all aspects and would be carried out in a transparent manner without hiding any fact to ensure justice for all.

"I'm not only sad but am also surprised at what had transpired, especially when the incident involved a student who was only 15 years old. Thus, I give my assurance that the probe will be transparent. We will investigate all aspects including the need for the police to shoot at that time," he told reporters here today.

Hishammuddin said, however, it was too early to jump to conclusion and determine who were in the wrong in the incident.

In the incident at about 2am, a 15-year-old youth died after being shot by policemen while his friend fled after they came across a police patrol car in Section 11, here.

In another development, the minister said every witness in the inquest into the death of Teoh Beng Hock, a political aide to a Selangor State Executive Councillor, were assured of their safety throughout the proceedings.

He was commenting on the death threat received by a forensic expert from the United Kingdom, Dr Peter Venezis, by a group who were not happy with his testimony yesterday.

"When talking about threats, I too had received threats, in fact, the Inspector-General of Police received a threat two days ago. We investigate every threat received, and in the case of Dr Venezis, we are also in the midst of investigating," he said.

Hishammuddin also expressed disappointment at the attitude of Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand, who is an important witness for the family of the late Teoh, who had yet to come forward until today to the extent of hindering the proceedings.

Earlier, the minister attended a gathering with members of the Prisons Department Board of Visitors at the Officers Mess of the Kajang Prison.

Burglars break into his service over the weekend but the only thing they take are the CPUs of five desktop computers. Azmin had closed the service centre for two days over the week-end to concentrate his efforts on the Hulu Selangor by-election on Sunday.

The break-in was only discovered today by Azmin's special officer Najib Onn when he arrived at the centre early this morning. Azmin expressed surprise that only the CPUs were taken while all the other items, printers, fax machines, computer monitors and phones were left intact.

SINKHOLE DISASTER: Syabas to Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water!

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — Gushing water from a broken underground pipe along Jalan University in Bangsar yesterday, sent three cars crashing and causing injuries to the three drivers.
During the 4.30pm incident, the impact of the gushing water saw the first car, a Nissan Sunny, being hurled about 10m into the air before landing on the opposite side of the road, causing serious injuries to the driver.
Two other cars that were following behind, a Honda and a Proton suffered a similar fate, though the impact was less.
The Honda car turned turtle while the Proton spun dangerously before coming to a stop and both drivers suffered minor injuries while all three were rushed to the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) by passersby.
Assistant director of the Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department Azizan Ismail said initial investigations revealed that the broken pipe was caused by underground pressure due to works carried out.
“It may have been due to work carried out by the responsible company. The incident also resulted in a 15 feet hole in the place,” he told reporters at the scene.
Meanwhile, Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) in a statement said it was not involved in any pipe replacement work in the area.
Its Corporate Communications Executive Director Abdul Halem Mat Som said that the broken pipe was caused by relocation of pipes carried out by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water.
“The 1800mm pipe that broke in Jalan University was due to works carried out by the said ministry and SYABAS was not involved directly or indirectly,” he said in the statement. — Bernama

BN did not buy votes. BN enticed only. BN said: I OFFER YOU $$ IF YOU...

April 26, 2010 13:25 PM
PUTRAJAYA, April 26 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Monday dismissed claims that the Barisan Nasional (BN) was involved in buying votes to win the Hulu Selangor by-election Sunday.

The prime minister said various projects announced in Hulu Selangor recently were to resolve long-standing problems faced by the residents.

"We didn't buy votes but we solve people's problems. Those are genuine problems which have not been addressed for some time. They are really genuine.

"It's not that we went around saying 'look, we give you this, we give you that', no," he told reporters after opening the Malaysia Green Forum 2010 here.

Present were former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is Landskap Malaysia's advisor, and his wife, Tun Jeanne Abdullah, who is chairman of Landskap Malaysia.

Najib was asked to comment on the opposition's claim that the BN had spent RM167 million on projects to win votes in Hulu Selangor.

In Sunday's by-election, the BN's P. Kamalanathan beat PKR's Datuk Zaid Ibrahim with a 1,725-vote majority, polling 24,997 votes against Zaid's 23,272 votes.

The BN chairman said projects such as the newly-built elevated interchange near Sungai Buaya were meant to solve the problems of the people of that constituency.

"It was on the basis that people wanted these projects, just like the interchange (near Sungai Buaya). The interchange was done by PLUS (Plus Expressways Bhd). It's not public money.

"It's PLUS and the interchange will help people in that area because it can cut down the travelling time by 60 to 90 minutes. So we are adressing the genuine needs of the people. We are not buying votes," he said.

Najib said of the opposition: "They should also ask themselves what they have done with the state government's resources. Haven't they been approving all kind of things for the people during elections?

"They have been doing that. So don't point the finger at the Barisan Nasional. Please look at themselves," he said.

Najib also expressed satisfaction that the BN was able to capture a seat in a state which was considered a handicap for the party.

"I am happy with the result because it shows that the trend is definitely moving towards the Barisan Nasional. It is a good victory because we were fighting a battle in a state controlled by the opposition," he said.

"We were handicapped in that sense. However the victory is a good victory because we can build on this victory and it has given the Barisan Nasional a lot of new spirit and hope for the future.

"It has to be a sustainable victory and we will sustain our victory by understanding what needs to be done for the long haul. So it cannot just be a one-off victory but (we must) build on it and strengthen what needs to be done so that the Barisan Nasional becomes the party for the future as well," he said.

However, the prime minister believes that the ultimate test for the BN would be the next general election.

"The ultimate test will of course be the general election. So far from what I have heard, I am very encouraged that there is an underlying support among the public and we hope to show results and the people want to see the results.

"We are committed to ensuring that our execution and implementation will be showing the way in terms of delivering the results that the people would like us to do," he added.

In KUALA LUMPUR, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin gave an assurance that the BN would keep all the promises that it had made in the Hulu Selangor by-election, including in places that did not favour the coalition.

"Promises must be fully fulfilled. We don't look at the areas that we have won or lost. We feel that if we win, we should fulfil all the promises that we have announced," he told reporters after the presentation of the 2010 National Intellectual Property award.

He said part of the list had been received and would be discussed with Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Noh Omar as minsiter responsible to the prime minister to ensure that all the projects announced were implemented in the shortest possible time.

He also said that the BN would conduct a detailed study to determine the voter trend in all aspects in the area according to race and where the vote increase and decrease were obvious.

He said the findings of the analysis would be used by the BN to craft strategies not just to win elections but also to gauge the receptiveness of Malaysians to the changes and reforms instituted by the new leadership under Najib.

"We take the election result into account to identify the areas that need fast action and have the biggest impact," he said, expressing the hope that the victoryin Hulu Selangor would bring victory to the BN in the Sibu parliamentary by-election in Sarawak.

Polling for the Sibu seat which feel vacant following the death of incumbent Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew will be held on May 15.



PUTRAJAYA, April 26 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is now focusing on bribe givers in its fight against corruption, says its deputy chief commissioner (Operations) Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull.
He said the MACC believed that without bribe givers, there would be no corruption involving public servants, especially enforcement officers.
“The public have always wondered why the MACC seems to be focusing on the bribe recipients... so now we will go all out against the bribe givers,” he said during a briefing for the media.
Mohd Shukri said the fight would be carried out through the “Together Making Change: Fight Corruption” campaign, which was launched by Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan here today.
At the state level, it was also launched simultaneously nationwide.
The campaign is aimed at raising the integrity of public servants, improving the public service delivery system and image of enforcement agencies, instilling an attitude of rejecting corruption, and encouraging reporting of any bribe offer to the MACC.
“With this campaign, members of the public should be careful. Don’t try to bribe (policemen) as the MACC may be watching.”
He said without bribe givers, enforcement officers or those involved in approving tenders would not be inclined to solicit for bribes as they feared they could be arrested.
Mohd Shukri said until March this year, 142 arrests and 51 charges were made against the offenders under section 17(b) of the MACC Act 2009. Of the 142 offenders, 76 were public servants, 12 from the private sector while 54 were members of the public. — Bernama

Read posting by Lim Kit Siang:


SHAH ALAM, April 26 — A Sessions Court judge here today chided the prosecution in a criminal breach of trust (CBT) case involving an aide of Selangor executive councillor Ronnie Liu today for not prosecuting a witness in the case.
Judge Mat Ghani Abdullah, in acquitting and discharging Wong Chuan How without calling for his defence, said the person who should be charged in this case was Mohd Zaini Abd Rahman, a former Parti Keadilan Rakyat member.
“I want to criticise the way the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) works.
“The prosecution did not charge the third witness (Mohd Zaini), the person who received the money. I think he is the one who should be charged. That puzzles me,” he added.
Wong, 51, was alleged to have committed CBT involving a cheque for RM2,500, an allocation to organise a gotong-royong and a meeting for residents of Kampung Baru Lanjut in the Sungai Pelek state constituency at the Sepang district office between July 30 and Sept 16, 2008.
Mat Ghani held that the prosecution failed to establish a prima facie case against Wong, who was represented by lawyers Imran Hadzalie Abdul Hamid, Salim Bashir and Teoh Lib Peng.
MACC prosecuting officer Yusliza Mohd Yusoff was present on behalf of deputy public prosecutor Mohd. Josiendra Abu Senin. — Bernama

Tengku Adnan: Chinese will not be sidelined *YAWN*

BN secretary-general says the Chinese voters in Hulu Selangor won't be neglected just because the majority voted for the opposition.

If BN lost, not only the Rasa Chinese primary school would get no money, the whole of Hulu Selangor would be totally neglected. That is the sincerity of Umno-led BN government!

The Rasa Chinese primary school is RM3 million richer today because of buy-election!

KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — The Rasa Chinese primary school is RM3 million richer today from a campaign promise after Barisan Nasional (BN) won yesterday’s Hulu Selangor by-election but the ruling federal coalition is concerned that it failed to garner greater Chinese support.
BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said it might have won the seat with a 1,725-vote majority but the coalition has to improve support from the Chinese community, which again turned its back on the BN this by-election and in Election 2008.

Actually, Chinese also stupid but not as stupid as...(you fill in the blanks lah). Why stupid? Reason being MCA  Chinese can elect a 'PORN' star as their President! What has MCA done for the Chinese community?

I just give one example: Chinese get to eat less and less pork nowadays. If you Chinese do notice, food courts in hypermarkets are all halal. If MCA as a CHINESE party cannot even demand for one non-halal CHINESE FOOD stall to be in every food court in every hypermarket, then MCA, as a CHINESE party has failed.

How about 1Malaysia? 1Malaysia is inclusive, right? If 1Malaysia cannot even allow 1, just one non-halal stall selling pork dishes in every food court in every hypermarket in  Malaysia, 1Malaysia has failed. 1Malaysia does not care for the minority even though Chinese is the so-called second largest majority!

So, if 1Malaysia cannot even do it, forget about MCA lah! Dr 'Porn' Chua's worst fear is confirmed -
MCA has, indeed, already become a political dinosaur!

'Teoh was fully conscious before he fell' but neck injury, he cannot tell! Neck injury expert kononnya!

BREAKING NEWS updated 11.35am British forensic pathologist Prof Peter Vanezis also says Teoh Beng Hock’s injuries were consistent with a fall from height.

Even though he stated that he held a doctorate on neck injuries when he took the stand this morning, he could not determine or rule out whether strangulation or a choke-hold had been applied, but said Teoh was conscious before the fall. 

I'm feeling a bit suspicious. Here is a guy who is an expert on neck injuries yet he can't tell if the neck injury suffered by Teoh is caused by strangulation or choke-hold.

Like how we say it here in Bahasa Malaysia (or Melayu?) - 'Expert kononnya!'

Win in Hulu Selangor is all about Umno, not MIC-MCA-PPP-Gerakan or BN

While leaders from PPP and MIC credited the victory to BN, two Umno fellows, one Toyol and another Shukur, said the win was a good signal for Umno Selangor and it was clear that Malays had overwhelmingly supported Umno, respectively.

No wonder, Kamalanathan, right from the start, declared and vowed to deliver Hulu Selangor as gift to Najib.

Congratulations Kalamanathan for being Umno's running-dog MP!

Hulu Selangor: BN wins by majority of 1,725! A SLAP IN THE FACE FOR BN

LIVE REPORTS P Kamalanathan (MIC) bags 24,997 votes against Zaid Ibrahim's (PKR) 23,272 in the Hulu Selangor by-election.

On April 24, The Malaysian Insider in the commentary entitled 'With Najib's giveaways, BN must win big at Hulu Selangor' reported:
Anything less than a 3,000-vote majority, ironically predicted by independent Pasir Mas MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali, will be a slap in the face for Najib and BN.


Unofficially, PR leading but KPI set for BN to win by 6,000-vote majority! ;)

Here's the latest update at Malaysiakini:

7.12pm: Unofficial results
PKR - 9,133
BN - 7,261
Majority - 1,872
About 33 percent of the votes have been tallied so far.

Anyway, still a long way to go! Another 67 percent of the votes that have yet to be counted.

BN may just catch up and PR fall flat on . Remember Muhyiddin says BN targets 6-000 vote majority!

Hooked on Facebook, users even message mid-sex

NEW YORK, March 23 — A new study reveals that increasing numbers of social network users check their Facebook and Twitter accounts in the middle of the night when they can’t sleep. Some social networkers even revealed that they would look at messages while having sex.
The study, conducted on March 16 by consumer electronics site Retrevo, found that 30 per cent of Twitter and Facebook users would check their accounts any time they woke up during the night.
Forty-seven per cent of people in the study said they check their social network sometimes during the night. Fifty-three per cent raced to look at what had happened on their social network as soon as they woke up.
People under the age of 25 were more likely to lose sleep keeping an eye on their friends’ posts during the night.
iPhone users and the under 25s were also much more likely to check their social networks in the morning to find out what was happening in the world — replacing morning TV shows like Good Morning America with social media “news,” said the study.
When it came to using social networks during the day, more than 40 per cent of respondents said they didn’t mind being interrupted by a message from their social network.
Seven per cent even said they would read a message during sex.
A September 2009 study conducted by Crowd Science on people’s social networking habits showed that Twitter and Facebook users were so integrated with their online social networks that many of them checked their accounts when they were in the toilet, while driving a car or even during a religious service.

What you should know about Facebook's changes - - U like "Like" buttons to be all over the Internet?

San Francisco, California (CNN) -- Facebook announced some changes on Wednesday that are intended to make the Internet more social. Essentially, Facebook is stretching out into the rest of the Web.
But what do these new features actually mean for everyday people who use the Internet?
And when you see these Facebook-looking features popping up on other Web sites, how do you know what to do with them?
Here's a quick guide, based on a comments by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founder and CEO, and interviews with developers who create applications for the massively popular social-networking site:
"Like" buttons
Buttons with the word "like" and a thumbs-up icon on them are going to start popping up all over the Internet. By clicking one, you indicate that you find the content interesting, relevant or helpful. Basically, you would recommend it to a friend.
Before Wednesday, "like" buttons only were on Facebook. Now, they'll be all over the place, including on this site. When you click one, you post the item -- whether it's a blog post, photo or celebrity web page -- to your Facebook news feed.

Umno top three defectors: Onn Jaafar, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Hussein Onn

Going into the last lap, Anwar takes the fight to BN, with verbal jabs left and right.
Anwar also belittled the publicity surrounding the defections from PKR, particularly in the lead up to the upcoming by-election, saying that those who left were nobodies, reminding the audience that Umno too had a string of defections in its illustrious history, and from much higher ranking members. Among them were Umno's first president Onn Jaafar, and second president Tunku Abdul Rahman who both quit the party. After that, the third president, Najib's father, Abdul Razak Hussein died and the fourth president, Hussein Onn, also quit, Anwar noted.

Finally, 87 surviving forsaken Felda settlers get back what is rightfully theirs

They waited for 15 years!

The rest could not wait. They died.

That's how Umno-led BN government works - rob first, pay later!

Don't know why these Felda fellows are so blind.

They even thanked BN! Exactly what Najib wanted!

In fact, he wants more! He wants them to be grateful to BN from cradle to grave!

Remember, the goal of 1Malaysia as stated in Paragraph 11, page four of the (GTP) Government Transformation Plan, is to make Malaysia … ultimately a greater nation: a nation where, it is hoped, every Malaysian perceives himself or herself as Malaysian first...*YAWN*
I don't think PM Najib believes in his own goal of 1Malaysia. Ooops...Is it his own goal or Apco's goal?

Why do I think that he does not believe in the goal of 1Malaysia? Reason being he cannot even convince his own deputy who prides in being "Malay first". He said, “Everybody has their roots, and I am Malay. But in my heart, I am Malaysian...” It's like saying, "I am Tongkat Ali but I am Ginseng inside!"

TV producer resigns: Interference from 'Lady Boss' of PM's Dept, Rosmah!

The award-winning ntv7 journalist Joshua Wong quits following 'overzealous self-censorship'.

Following is an excerpt of explanation by Joshua Wong on his resignation:
I have on April 20 resigned as producer for ntv7's talk show 'Editor's Time'.
I am dissatisfied on the way the company has handled two complaints which came from the Prime Minister's Department and the First Lady (Rosmah Mansor). The complaints came after the airing the programme's Kuala Lumpur roadshow (March 19) and Penang roadshow (April 8).

The company, without conducting due investigation, set unreasonable restrictions for the talk show on the issues to be discussed as well as those to be invited as panel speakers.

Down to the wire in Hulu Selangor - BN vs PR:Najib vs Anwar Who will win?

KUALA KUBU BHARU: Just like the race for the English Premier League (EPL) title this season, the battle for the Hulu Selangor parliamentary seat remains too close to call with just two days before polling on April 25.

The eight-day official campaign period has now entered its last legs, but party insiders from the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and Barisan Nasional (BN) blocs agree that the Malay votes are split down the middle, making it difficult to predict how they will vote.

Both sides have expressed some optimism when asked about their chances, but do not want to appear overly confident.

Malays constitute 52.7% of the electorate or 34,020 voters, with over 6,000 voters located in the Felda settlements in the Hulu Bernam state constituency bordering Perak.

Most Malay voters appear to be unperturbed by criticism against PKR candidate Datuk Zaid Ibrahim for drinking.

Zaid had admitted that he drank in his younger days and has since repented, which is likely to contain the damage on that score.

Many Malay voters, particularly in the town area, prefer instead to talk about what the elected representative can do for them and what development he can bring to the semi-rural constituency, which is littered with abandoned housing and commercial projects.

The "alcohol issue" is largely a non-factor for the Chinese and Indian voter pool, which consists of 16,964 voters (26.3%) and 12,453 voters (19.3%) respectively.

The Chinese votes appear to favour PR, with many voters expressing disdain for BN's Chinese-based party MCA and approval of the Selangor state government's efforts, particularly on land issues, free water and other welfare measures.

Support from Indian voters too remains difficult to read, with many of the older voters expressing strong support for BN while younger voters seem more open to the idea of voting for a non-BN party.

For many fence-sitters, the decision could boil down to whether the BN-led federal government or PR's administration of Selangor has produced more tangible results.

While the "alcohol issue" played up by certain groups within BN had appeared to lose steam towards the end of the week, PR's subtle attacks against BN's candidate, MIC information chief P Kamalanathan, have had little effect too.

Kamalanathan had been portrayed as being "subservient" to Umno, after photographs of him kissing Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's hand surfaced. The authenticity of the 44-year-old public relations manager's communications degree also appears to be a non-issue for voters.

Party officials too have realised that the electorate here are "matured voters" and know what they want from their elected representatives.

Kamalanathan could win over some support from those who are glad to see a fresh face from MIC as well as a "local boy", given that he hails from nearby Rawang town. However, many voters point out that Zaid had quit as de facto law minister in 2008 to protest the use of the Internal Security Act (ISA) to detain three people.

The temperature in Hulu Selangor had been scorching from the word go with both BN and PR leaders focusing their attention in the vast constituency immediately after the death of the incumbent Hulu Selangor member of parliament from PKR Datuk Dr Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

BN ministers and the PR-led Selangor state administration have also gone down to the constituency, bringing many programmes and aides to the area.

Zainal Abidin's death on March 25 had brought about the country's 10th by-election since the 2008 general election, in which the opposition did surprisingly well, clinching five states and denying BN a two-third majority in parliament.

PKR leaders have been leveraging on the Selangor state government's "people-friendly" policies, including the granting of land titles to squatters, quit rent exemption for unoccupied shophouses, additional land for vernacular schools and promises to look into the plight of children of Felda settlers requesting for homes on the settlement.

BN, on the other hand, has fired several shots at the Selangor government for its alleged "incompetency" to fulfil pledges despite ruling the nation's richest state for the last two years.

The federal ruling coalition has also promised to practise "more inclusive" politics and pledged to bring continued development to Hulu Selangor, reminding voters of its "proven track record" in running the country for over half a century.

They have also promised some goodies in relation to education, health and welfare matters for the rural voters and would look into the large number of abandoned townships in Hulu Selangor.

BN's campaign has been banking on the popularity of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his 1Malaysia concept, with more posters bearing Najib's photographs than the BN candidate.

Originally a four-cornered fight, the withdrawal of the two independent candidates has set up a straight but heated fight between BN and PR. Some pundits have been quick to see this as a battle between Najib and Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's credibility and leadership.

Will Najib's 1Malaysia concept prevail or will PKR remain unscatched with its recent defections and internal bickering?

Hulu Selangor's voters are not merely voting for a member of parliament but could signal whether BN stands a chance to recapture Selangor in the next general election.

For once, the opposition has not brought up the issue of phantom voters in a by-election but has raised their concern at the Election Commission changing the polling stations of some 14,000 voters without notification as it might confuse voters on polling day.

The 799 postal voters, largely army and police personnel, began casting their ballots over two days from on Thursday. The rest of Hulu Selangor goes to the ballot on Sunday.

Over the weekend, both BN and PR will be bringing down their big guns in the last ditch effort to secure as much support as possible for their respective candidates.

Najib, who recently returned from an official tour overseas, is set to campaign house-to-house on Friday and Saturday, while PAS' spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat is also campaigning on Friday to lend the PR campaign a boost.

It will be down to the wire as both BN and PKR need this psychological win badly before the next general election. A strong turnout is expected as outstation voters are expected to return from nearby Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding areas. With that, all eyes will be on returning officer Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan as he announces the winner at 11pm on Sunday.

BN bigwigs entering the ring, the BIGGEST being heavyweight ROSMAH!!!

A few Malay BN bigwigs, including former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, are due to turn up the heat in Hulu Selangor as the by-election campaign enters the crucial final lap. Even though Mahathir had previously declared that he had no interest in being involved in the campaign, he will be delivering a speech at 8.30 in Serendah tonight.

How desperate BN is! BN is scared to death!

Najib applies 'Obama magic' at Hulu S'gor. Umno used Apco, Najib used Obama?

PM says that his meeting with US president is an acknowledgment that the BN has been doing a good job thus far.

On April 13, 2010, in an article entitled 'Apco contract cost RM77 mil a year', Malaysiakini reported that Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Aziz revealed in Parliament that the contract signed between the government and the controversial communication consultant giant Apco Worldwide amounted to a whopping RM77 million and went on to illustrate what made Apco worth the millions that the government paid for its services - one of them was the meeting between Najib and Obama.

The question now that we must ask is 'Can we ever trust a Minister's words?' First, acknowledgement. Then, denial.

One Israel, One Singapore, One Malaysia! Great debate: Clash of reason and ideas

It is being billed as the 'Great Debate'. But what may begin in hype may end in caricature.

Today's parliamentary session that will debate whether Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim should be cited to the Rights and Privileges Committee for misleading the House would be great only if it traffics in the weapons that make for eminence: the clash of reason and ideas.

Hisham: Security concerns not the reason Dr Pornthip didn't appear at inquest


KUALA LUMPUR: Security concerns were not the reason why Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand did not appear at the Teoh Beng Hock inquest, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.
"I have guaranteed her safety and have not set any conditions but she has not told us who is pressuring her," Hishammuddin told reporters at a conference at Putra World Trade Centre here Tuesday.
He said if Dr. Pornthip provided police with information on who was pressuring her not to testify, it would make their job of protecting her easier.
"I can prepare a police escort to pick her up from the airport and send her to court. I can also make sure the Special Operations Unit (UTK) is stationed in her room and I will make sure she goes back to Thailand safely," Hishammuddin added.
Earlier, he opened the International Conference on Defence and Security 2010 at the Defence Services Asia 2010 exhibition held at PWTC.

Entering Malaysia is already a life-threatening move for Pornthip but to be protected by UTK? SEI LOH

Opposition taken to task for questioning institutions, constitution

HULU SELANGOR, April 20 (Bernama) -- The government is worried over the preponderance of the opposition in questioning the role of institutions and provisions as enshrined in the Federal Constitution, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
"Long-established institutions such as the police, the judiciary, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and economic institutions, which have been well received, are being disputed by them," he said at a public rally at Taman Sri Liam, Ulu Yam Baharu here tonight.
He said the opposition also tried to disrupt the political stability prompted by the government's achievements in initiating the 1Malaysia concept, the New Economic Model and the Government Transformation Programme.
"I am worried if this political trend continues, it will put development in disarray and affect the stability of the country.
"The 1Malaysia concept introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has a strong pull factor that made the opposition feels threatened," said Muhyiddin.
At the function, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Hulu Selangor division former treasurer Datuk Dr Halili Rahmat submitted his Umno membership application form to Muhyiddin to a thunderous applause from the audience.
In his speech, Dr Halili said the PKR alarmed the Malays by playing racial sentiments while its leaders were power crazy and neglected the people.
"I am not a racist. Moreover, 80 percent of my patients are Chinese," he said.
Present were Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar, who is also Hulu Selangor BN parliamentary by-election director, Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Zainal Abidin and BN candidate P.Kalamanathan.

This Halili really opened my eyes! Now I can see Umno is 'the righteous'!

While the PKR defector was careful with his words, Umno strongman Mohd Isa Samad provided the verbal fireworks. Speaking at his first pro-BN ceramah last night, Dr Halili Rahmat stated that he had "no political ambitions" and as a sane person, he must be on the side of the righteous (pihak yang benar). Halili's 'link' with Anwar goes as far back as 1994 when the former had been a personal physician to the latter fell off a horse while out riding. Hmm...I'm sure that Halili, being a neurosurgeon, is a 'discerning' man. 

Why only after all these years did he finally realize that he was on the wrong side? Hai yoh! Good thing he lost when he contested on PKR ticket in 1999 and 2004 general elections. After all, he said he had "no political ambitions"! But in the first place, why did he contest? Man, this neurosurgeon is a confused man! Maybe some nerves in his brain are in a mess!

Zaid: Umno guys gamble. I heard a certain ex-Umno Minister Mehgard Joonid and his children played Roulette too!

By Clara Chooi
KUALA KUBU BARU, April 20 — PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim fired a salvo of his own today when he claimed that Umno politicians frequent casinos around the world.
“The gambling guys are all in Umno. They go to casinos, you know?” said a smiling Zaid at a press conference at the PKR operations centre here this afternoon.
The former Umno man then urged the media to check the registers of casinos “all around the world” for names of these Umno politicians.
“Check with them.... you will not find my name there but you will find theirs,” he said.
Zaid, however, declined to reveal the names of these politicians but maintained that he is not a gambler.
However, he admitted to owning racehorses but insisted that this did not amount to gambling.
“Horse-racing is a sport. There is nothing wrong with it. I do not think these Umno guys understand... like my father before, he used to own birds,” he said.
He was responding to allegations in blogs that he was a gambler.
According to the blogs, Zaid’s horse Kelantan won in a race in 2006, and earned him a whopping US$450,000 (RM1.44 million).
Zaid later said he did own racehorses — three from New Zealand and one thoroughbred from Australia. “There is nothing wrong,” he insisted.
Zaid also said that he would not press charges against these bloggers for their baseless allegations or for putting up doctored pictures of him drinking alcohol.
“I can’t press charges on people who put up these blogs. What kind of charges anyway? If you keep suing all these people you will end up doing nothing else in your life,” he said, eliciting laughter from the reporters present.
Zaid also said that the withdrawal of the two independents in the by-election race would not make the battle any easier. “It will not be easier, it will make little difference. Obviously I am not just fighting the candidate here, I am contesting against all the Umno guys like (Prime Minister Datuk Seri) Najib (Razak) and (deputy prime minister Tan Sri) Muhyiddin (Yassin).
“All the banners across town bear the face of Najib,” he said.
Zaid however continued to appeal to the Hulu Selangor voters to choose him as their MP, and cited his close relationship with Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.
“Furthermore, I have the experience and I have the vision. And my vision is the same as the state government’s,” he said.
Khalid, who also attended the press conference, had earlier pointed out that Zaid would help the state government in adding value to its development plans.
“He can be our bridge to the people of Hulu Selangor. And we have a very good relationship,” he said.
Khalid assured the press that as the mentri besar and elections director in Hulu Selangor, he gave his full support to Zaid.
“We fully support his fight and we will help him to win,” he said.
Khalid pointed out that in comparison with Barisan Nasional’s P. Kamalanathan, Zaid was more experienced by far.
“He used to be in government before, he used to be an MP before. Therefore, the Hulu Selangor voters should not take the risk.. they should vote for someone who already has this experience and who will be able to work for their needs,” he said.

Why am I not surprised by Zaid's 'revelation'? I was reliably informed by an aunty whose daughter used to work for one of Joonid's children and man, the stories of lavish lifestyle - eating, drinking, traveling and gambling too! They even played roulette! They must be Russians and not Malaysians!! ;-)

Open tender decision vindicated, says Guan Eng. ZAHRAIN THE LOSER!

Guan Eng: Decision to hold new open tender vindicated
Himanshu Bhatt

Lim Guan Eng
GEORGE TOWN (15 April 2010):
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng today said his decision to hold a new open tender for the management of the Bukit Jambul Country Club instead of taking up Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim’s recommendation of a two-dollar company for the project, has been vindicated. Lim, who is the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) chairman, said the success in getting Japanese company Taiyo Resorts (KL) Bhd at a contract value of RM80 million, would not cost PDC or the state a single sen.
In contrast, the company recommended by Zahrain, the Bayan Baru MP who in February this year quit PKR to become an independent, had wanted to upgrade the club at a cost of RM2.75 million with the money taken from PDC subsidiary Island Golf Properties Bhd (IGP).Taiyo, on the other hand, has given a financial commitment on guaranteed returns of RM29 million over the next 20 years, while ploughing in investments from its own funds totalling RM51 million over the same period.
The club, which features an 18-hole golf course, is under the ambit of IGP, which was until recently chaired by Zahrain, Lim said Zahrain had recommended that PDC endorse the IGP’s preference to let L&L Golf Management Sdn Bhd run BJCC.
But the PDC board on Feb 10, 2009 rejected Zahrain’s recommendation and instead agreed with Lim’s recommendation for a fresh open tender.
"When I looked at the company’s background, what struck me was that it was a two-dollar company without any track record, and was formed two months before the tender," Lim said at a press conference.
Lim claimed Zahrain became upset when he was asked to conduct a fresh tender and even threatened to resign as BJCC chairman.
"When we later did the new open tender we were surprised we could get seven companies," he said.
"Zahrain told me there was open tender earlier and I accepted it. He asked me to approve this company (L&L) and said there was no other company."
"But the two-dollar company was established two months before tender was called. I said that is not acceptable," he said.
In contrast, Taiyo had a paid-up capital RM 5 million, and was established on Sept 15, 1987.
"This (Taiyo) is a good deal for PDC. We get RM1.3 million a year and we don’t have to invest anything for it," Lim added.
