This remains on top until the ISA is repealed & all those imprisoned without trail in Malaysia are released!

Happy Diwali to ALL

Let us all fervently hope:

That good will always prevail over evil

that light will replace darkness,

that transparencywill overturn unnecessary secrecy,

that the truth will overcom lies and hypocrisy


that sincerity and honesty will eradicate ingrained bribery and corruption

Death-by-Bus Continues in Malaysia!

Die like a frog (mati katak) in Malaysia, no one cares less

Some of the reasons are:-

  • No enforcement on roads & highways.
  • Corruption, Corruption, Corruption!
  • Lackadaisical authorities
  • Incompetence, stupidity
  • Cover-ups
  • Political influence and patronage
  • Poor road design and awful road-sign placement and multiple designs
  • Third world culture and mentality
  • Complaisance

Seven people, six of whom were teenagers, were killed and 39 others injured in a bus accident at Genting Sempah, outside of Kuala Lumpur.

The crash, happened at 7.50pm last night 29th October 2010), said Selangor traffic chief Supt Che Hussein Omar.

Seventeen were seriously injured while the remaining 22 suffered minor injuries,” he said. “Two people were thrown out from the bus.”

He added police were investigating the driver for reckless driving.

The co-driver said he was asleep when the crash happened.

“When I got up, the bus was rolling,” he added.




The driver who was driving the bus, that hit the roadside safety barrier and overturned several times at kilometre 38 of the Genting Sempah road on Friday, 29th October 2011, night, killing seven and injuring 39 others, did not have a driving licence.

In Baling, where the bus trip originated,families of the seven victims who were killed claimed that the bus was not the one promised by the bus company and said it was was not in good condition.

This is quite typical of the every day situation in today's Malaysia.

  • Corruption and bribery rule.
  • Money is seemingly king!
  • The dire consequences of actions are disregarded.
  • Safety is disregarded
  • Lives are regarded as cheap and are dispensable!

When well the people wake up and demand change?

May the seven innocent victims of this bus crash rest in peace.

And the extravagant pie-in-the-sky tourism minister wants to encourage tourists to hire self-drive cars!

How idiotic, even the locals get lost everyday!!!!!!

New Slogan for Ministry of Tourism:

Malaysia Truly a Great Place to Die in a Road Accident

Spend two weeks in Malaysia, hire a car.

You may either die, or perhaps you will spend your whole holiday trying to get out of Kuala Lumpur.................. enjoy going round in every decreasing circles, but be careful you may end up in your own anus!!!!

DANGER! PLEASE TAKE HEED - Do not Travel on Express Buses in Malaysia

Yet another express bus crash resulting in a massive death toll and scores of injuries.

When will the carnage on Malaysia's roads end?

So all you people out there, locals and tourists alike, please think very carefully before choosing to travel by express bus in Malaysia.

Remember in Malaysia:
  • Talking is cheap
  • Lives are regarded as cheap, &
  • Corruption is still alive and thriving, but it is certainly killing the country and the people!

Twelve people were killed on the spot and more than 45 others were injured in a crash involving two buses, a van and three cars at Kilometre 223 of the North-South Highway near the Simpang Ampat toll plaza on Sunday, 10th October 2010.
The express bus crashed through the guardrail and ploughed into the five other vehicles heading in the opposition direction.

Police said the tragedy, at 18:40, happened when a bus heading towards Kuala Lumpur 'went out of control' and flipped over to the southbound side of the highway.

How on earth does a bus, or any other vehicle, 'go out of control' what an idiotic thing to say!

The red bus seems to have been speeding, that is the norm in Malaysia, although all buses are restricted by law to a maximum speed on highways of 90 km/hour, they can be seen at any time of any day moving at well over the maximum speed allowed for any vehicle on a Malaysian highway, which is 110 km/hour!

The is virtually zero enforcement of most laws, even though Malaysia has so many enforcement agencies.

The police and the road transport department are supposed to take care of enforcement on the roads and highways, but they do not appear to do their work very well.

In this case the police were reported as saying, as quoted in a news report:

'There was no evidence so far that the express bus involved in the fatal crash in Simpang Ampat on Sunday was speeding.'

SAC Abdul Aziz said 'police were still unsure of the exact cause'.

Just wait, there will soon be another fatal crash involving an express bus, and more and more ad infinitum, unless something is done to end the carnage on Malaysia's roads. Don't hold your breath folks!!

Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president SM Idris was reported as saying that the authorities should investigate claims by some passengers that the bus was being driven very fast.

He said talks on public road safety were meaningless until enforcement and important policies on road safety were implemented.

"What happened to speed limiting devices on express buses, the automated enforcement system (AES) and proper management of commercial vehicle drivers?" he asked.

CAP said the authorities should stop pandering to the demands of transport companies and focus instead on saving lives.

Say NO to book banning

Yet another book
(politically unacceptable to UMNO?)
has been banned in Malaysia.

The latest banned book:
"The March To Putrajaya"
by Kim Quek

TO READ THE BOOK, all 375 pages, "The March To Putrajaya"
the pdf version, please click


This is yet another nail in the coffin of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

Even the freedom of thought is not encouraged in Malaysia!

What type of democratic system does Malaysia have?

It seems to more like a system stinking of dictatorial edicts, nepotism, feudalism, racism, which is run by pathetic, pigheaded, pompous, pie-in-the-sky politicians, who are a plague on Malaysia.

What is needed is more power to the people and free speech, freedom of expression, a free press and a truly democratic, open, unbiased and transparent system of governance.

These simple questions, and many more, need to be properly answered:

  • Why is Malaysia way far behind Singapore in every respect?
  • Where has all Malaysia's wealth gone to in the past half century?
  • Why is there still institutionalised racism in Malaysia?
  • Why do race and religion based political parties still thrive?
  • Why is religion so entwined with politics?
  • Why has corruption, from top to bottom, not been eradicated?

Full marks to Benigno Aquino, BRAVO!

Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III
born February 8, 1960)
also known as Noynoy
Aquino or PNoy,
is the fifteenth and the current President of the Philippines.

President Benigno Aquino's stand regarding contraception, as reported by AFP today, 27th September 2010, deserves accolades for his stand against the RC Church in the Philippines.

Please read the news item below.

Unwanted pregnancies should always be prevented

The Roman Catholic Church needs to get real, the priorities need to be adjusted.

In most, if not all ,developing countries with a large RC population, the vast majority of people are very poor, the Philippines is a prime example.

One of the reasons for this poverty is the very large number of children born tnto poor families who are denied access to free family planing education and contraception.

In my humble opinion the governments and the people of all nations should stand up against all archaic, oppressive, demeaning and illogical religious teachings which are detrimental to their prosperity, welfare, good health and well-being.

The Roman Catholic is filthy rich whilst their followers are generally as poor as church mice, how shameful this is!

Especially in poor countries with a high birth rate, more instruction, material and moral encouragement and free, or very cheap, and easily accessible contraception methods are absolutely vital.

"MANILA - THE Philippine government will provide contraceptives to poor couples who request it despite strong opposition from the dominant Roman Catholic church, President Benigno Aquino said on Monday.

Speaking in a satellite television interview from the United States where he is on a seven-day visit, Mr Aquino stressed that the number of children a couple had was a matter of personal choice.

'The government is obligated to inform everybody of their responsibilities and their choices. At the end of the day, government might provide assistance to those who are without means if they want to employ a particular method,' he said.

'I believe the couple will be in the best position to determine what is best for the family, how to space (the births), what methods they can rely on and so forth,' said Mr Aquino at a 'town hall' style meeting with expatriate Filipinos.

'They face the responsibility for the children that they bring in and government is willing to assist them.' Mr Aquino, a 50-year-old bachelor and a practising Catholic, was responding to questions about how he planned to curb population growth in the face of opposition from the church.

The church wields considerable influence in the Philippines, where more than 80 per cent of the population are Catholics, and has used its clout in the past to attack officials who champion artificial methods of birth control." -- AFP

The humble condom, is a god-send for the poor.

Cartoonist Arrested in Cartoonophobic Malaysia!

Cartoon-0-Phobia, front cover

Zunar holding his book of cartoons,
he was reported as saying that police seized 70 copies of his latest book,
called 'Cartoon-O-Phobia',
at his home and are holding him
ahead of its scheduled launch on Friday evening.

"The raid at his office and his arrest only go to prove that the authorities are cartoon-phobic,' said Steven Gan, chief editor of online news portal Malaysiakini, the publisher of 'Cartoon-O-Phobia' and some of Mr Zunar's earlier books.

'This is an attack on freedom of expression, it again shows that the authorities have no sense of humour.' Mr Gan said the 80-page book had a caricature of Prime Minister Najib Razak's wife on the front cover and contained cartoons that touched on numerous controversial issues." -- AFP

He is expected to be in court before a magistrate on Saturday 25th September 2010.

It sure is 1 Pathetically Funny Malaysia!!!!

3rd UPDATE: 25.09.2010

It has been reported that the police have managed to obtain a one day remand order from Sepang Magistrates' Court today (25.09.2010) to enable them to continue to hold political cartoonist Zunar in police custody for further questioning.

4th UPDATE: 25.09.2010

News reports state that:
Zunar, who was arrested on Friday under the Sedition Act, has been released on police bail from Sepang police station a few hours after police had obtained a one day remand order. Sepang police chief Supt. Zahedi Ayub confirmed the 18:30 release.

Meanwhile, Zunir has vowed to carry on with his work as a cartoonist and was reported as saying he will sue the police over his detention.

Wishing Everyone a Joyful Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

With tender affection and caring,
Sending sincere, kind blessings.
We're thousands of miles away,
Wishing you perfect harmony.
The Truth comes from afar—
Hoping you understand Truth.
We wish you good fortune and health.

Thoughts in the Silent Night

The moonlight is shinning through the window,
And it makes me wonder if it is the frost on the ground,
Looking up to see the moon .....
Looking down I miss so much about my home town.

Wishing everyone a joyous and harmonious mid-Autumn Moon Festival

May the family spirit of brotherhood and friendship, fostered by colourful lanterns and delicious moon cakes; bring peace, happiness, harmony and fellowship to all people everywhere.

The joyful Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, which is the third and last festival for the living, is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the eighth moon, that is around the time of the autumnal equinox. It is also regarded as the 'Harvest Festival'.

Many folks refer to it simply as the "Fifteenth of the Eighth Moon". The festival day always occurs sometime between the second week of September and the second week of October of the western Gregorian calender.

This year, 2010, the Mid-Autumn festival falls on 22nd September.

Moon cakes, measuring about three inches in diameter and one and a half inches in height are a little like fruitcakes in taste and consistency, but with their brown crust they resemble meat pies.

These cakes were traditionally made with melon seeds, lotus seeds, almonds, minced meats, bean paste, orange peels and lard.

One or more golden yolk from a salted duck egg is often placed at the centre of each cake, and the golden brown crust is decorated with symbols of the festival.

The Shanghai moon cake, however is a different shape, it is almost spherical and a paler colour.

Traditionally, thirteen moon cakes are piled in a pyramid to symbolize the thirteen moons of a "complete year," that is, twelve moons plus one intercalary (additional, or interpolated) moon, which is added to balance the lunar and solar years.

Clouds gather in the sky,
The moon sings a song of the Motherland.
We bring a word of greeting—
How Have You Been?
Hoping you understand the Truth,
Wishing you good health!

Lee Kuan Yew – "Malaysia could have enjoyed Singapore’s multi-racial system if not for the break up"

by Zaleh =Published on 14-09-2010 11:38 AM=

"Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of Singapore commented on the racial relations of Malaysia saying that if Singapore and Malaysia did not part ways back in 1965, the latter would have enjoyed the type of nationalism and multi-racism culture that are practised by Singapore. He was speaking at an interview with the New York Times recently where he mentioned that it was being ‘turfed out’ of Malaysia which formed the first regret of his career that spans many decades.”
-------------------------------------------& etc.

Read the contents of the interview with the New York Times by clicking HERE

Lee Kuan Yew is reported to have said:


“Malaysia took the different line; Malaysians saw it as a Malay country, all others are lodgers, ‘orang tumpangan’, and they the Bumiputeras, sons of the soil, run the show. So the Sultans, the Chief Justice and judges, generals, police commissioner, the whole hierarchy is Malay,”
