Dirty Slimy....politics.

There he goes...Kadir Sheikh Fadzil.
Ex-Umno member after 56years.

There is a very perfect Malay saying for him -- 'Sebab mulut badan binasa', which basically tells us to watch out what comes out of our mouth because saying the wrong thing to someone or to make it public, and in this case it was more politically wrong; will land you on the not so green grass and will obviously need start reaping what he sow.

Because of his controversial statement that hurts the ever sensitive hearts and ears of Umno members, former Information Minister and 30 years MP for Kulim-Bandar Baharu, Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir  had to resigned as an Umno member after spending that lenght of time being so adamantly loyal to the party.

He allegedly accused the ruling party handing between RM200 and RM1,000 to voters in previous elections in exchange for votes, which of course is not news at all to us who knows. Be it for the general election or some constituency election. 

This once flamboyant and outgoing minister must have been very frustrated with someone or something in the party. On the other hand, I'm not giving it all trust at all. Perhaps it was just another gimmick or wayang kulit played by UMNO in order to create some drama to spiced up the coming 13th GE.

Not being judgemental or trying to sprinkle some slandering ideas but hey, let's admit it. Anything is possible. It's politics. It's dirty. It's slimy. They're the same as those monsters who bomb women and kids for no reason in Palestine, they're the same as those devilish leaders and God-worshipping people in Iran who stoned to death many Iraqi students just because they don Emo haircuts. 

Anything can happen with the General Election just around the corner.
Just like one of the former prime minister who caught few 'scapegoats' after he took office in show of his 'clean and zero-corruption tolerance'.
The unlucky goats had to do it in order to prove that BN is a clean party.

You don't be surprised few months after this, a drama of Malaysia political satire will be aired during prime time on pro-government channels.
Someone will suddenly appear yay-ing the allegations made by Kadir, and Najib's boss will then instruct all party cleaning and investigating the matter, setting up yet another commission (like they always do) and someone -- the  scapegoat-- will be punished for bribing.
Viola !!-- clean and trustworthy UMNO/BN....again.
Hence everyone can start trusting Umno and the coalition party again....
And more votes will come in again...(sure, this is what they're hoping for)
And more katak will start appearing on the tele and newspaper with banner and chants of we love BN again...,

Just like the last one.
And at the end of the whole hoo haas...nothing change.

Duuuhhhhh.....it's politics.

Act of God

Living in the GCC had somehow made me appreciates where I came from.
It definitely made me matured certain aspect of life and know how to thank God for what I have been blessed and accept what's not supposed to be mine.

Honestly, the summer is bearable once our body is accustomed to the temperature but the sand storm is the worst. It will come blowing when spring comes knocking...and get worst during the transition to summer .

It certainly made me wonder how those people hundreds of years ago living and breathing the sand, where in this modern age, staying in house fully closed-up, and curtains drawn still the smell and you can even taste the sand in your lungs. Like I said everytime -- no where to hide and no where to run...and the extensive cleaning begun!


Gulf sand storm closes schools, disrupts air traffic.

A powerful sandstorm blowing over the Gulf has disrupted air traffic in Yemen, and closed schools and sent hundreds of people to hospital with respiratory problems in Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi ministry of education announced on Monday the closure of schools in the north, east and south-west of the desert kingdom, a day after similar measures were taken in the capital Riyadh, the official SPA news agency reported.

In Riyadh, hundreds of people, mostly children with Asthma and allergies, were treated for breathing difficulties triggered by the storm, according to official statistics released late on Saturday.

The storm also affected other Gulf countries, including the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, where national weather centres warned drivers to use extra caution due to poor visibility and strong winds.

In Yemen, the sand storm severely disrupted air traffic in and out of Sanaa's international airport.

At least two flights into the Yemeni capital were cancelled on Monday morning while several others were either delayed or re-routed to the southern port city of Aden, the official SABA news agency reported.

Shahrizat to quit cabinet post

Shahrizat to quit cabinet post

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said Sunday she will step down as Women, Family and Community Development Minister when her term as senator ends on April 8. (guess it is hard for her letting go the power)

However she will remain as Wanita Umno chief. (why?....still hungry for the power?  And you going to claim that there isn't any suitable candidate to be your successor?...)

In a response later Sunday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak expressed his gratitude to Shahrizat for her decision and urged Wanita Umno members to continue giving their full cooperation to their leader. (Najib expressed his gratitude....that's quite a joke. I think he had been waiting for that lady to call it a day right after the discovery of her wrong doings. And Najib damn well knows that this is yet another tarnish to his party....)

He said in Pekan that although there was no proof that Shahrizat did anything wrong, she had made the right decision so as to not burden the Government. (In Malay there is a saying -- Kalau tak ada angin pokok tak akan bergoyang--. and there is no rumour in Malaysia. Ninety nine percent will surely be a real whatnots. Yes, you're not guilty unless proven so, but hey....the obvious?...) 

Shahrizat told reporters: “I want to stress that I made the decision on my own. I love this nation and have the greatest respect for the government and the prime minister.
(Whatever you say Shahrizat, you're one of the worse woman minister besides Zaharah Sulaiman that Malaysia ever have. Mahathir made wrong move selecting you...one of his bad decision besides Khir Toyo)"I have nothing to do with NFC (National Feedlot Corporation). I just happened to be married to the chairman.

“I've been in politics a long time, and it is the right thing to do,” she told reporters at Desa Water Park.
(Yeah.... if you know this, being in politics for so long, you would have known the implications when you know what your husband doings. Surely you and your husband talk about it, and if you're smart you would have declare it earlier, or seek advices from your boss or peers, or just weight the whole scheme yourself....Im sure you know)

Shahrizat, who was surrounded by children and dandling a baby on her lap throughout the press conference, said she felt blessed for having the chance to serve the people.
(Typical of politicians ...they will make use of kids and babies when it comes to garnering supports....yuukkks)
"Serving the targeted groups under the ministry has been a joyful journey for me," she said, adding that it had brought meaning to her life.

The first-term senator's announcement comes after numerous allegations that her family had used an RM250mil federal loan meant for NFC to purchase land, property, and incurred expenses unrelated to cattle farming.

Headed by Shahrizat's husband Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail and their three children, the NFC was meant to rear cattle for the National Feedlot Centre in Gemas, Negri Sembilan.( Obviously this move is for the family own gain....)

However, in 2010 the Auditor-General's Report pointed out that the NFC had missed production goals that lead to a barrage of revelations about NFC that put her family under an unfavourable spotlight.

The former Lembah Pantai MP had maintained that she had nothing to do with the NFC as she was “only the wife” of Salleh. (this is whta I call dying swan act...or in her case dying swan answer. You're thinking as a wife...and manipulating goverment loan for your family good...how noble!)

Since then, the publicly-funded firm has been repeatedly accused by opposition parties of using its government soft loan for purposes unrelated to cattle farming, including the purchase of luxury condominium units in Bangsar and Singapore, and land in Putrajaya.

The police recommended last month that the Attorney-General (AG) charge NFC's directors for criminal breach of trust, but the AG has requested that the police conduct further investigations.


My verdict?
She is wrong and another obvious showcase of  Malaysian politician trying to make all the money she possibly could before calling it a day and spend time playing with cucus....

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc's latest iPad sports a crisper display and an array of technology advances that, while less than revolutionary, may prove enough for now to keep rivals like Amazon.com Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd at bay.

While stopping short of vaulting ahead of Motorola and Samsung, the device -- which comes 4G-ready and boasts a quad-core graphics processor -- is capable enough to help safeguard its two-thirds market share. "The screen is a notable feature for non-techie customers, as is the faster connectivity. That's something that mainstream consumers can identify with," said Morningstar analyst Michael Holt. "There's pent-up demand because a new device was widely anticipated. I they've made enough incremental improvements to do well."

Other analysts say the faster processing may begin to draw heavy gamers, encroaching on turf now dominated by gaming-hardware makers such as Microsoft or Sony.

Time and technologies....sometimes I'd like to think that they're competing with each another.
Apple has thus far proven to be the godfather of the arena when it comes to launching new things, although in the case of this new i-Pad, not all new but well-improved add ons.
This time I'm not so sure whether there'd be people sleeping outside the stores in order to get their hands on the latest iPad.
And yeah for its only purpose i.e. gaming, and varieties of art related applications which I especially favour the one that can produced fine art sketches, iPad is surely good for those on transits or killing time waiting. Besides that you can't do much.
Hopefully they will come out with ways disabling the loss of batt life after sometime not in use.

Failure or Success...

Someting worth reading....

The Formula for Failure and Success by Jim Rohn.

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. We do not fail overnight. Failure is the inevitable result of an accumulation of poor thinking and poor choices. To put it more simply, failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.

Now why would someone make an error in judgment and then be so foolish as to repeat it every day? The answer is because he or she does not think that it matters.

On their own, our daily acts do not seem that important. A minor oversight, a poor decision or a wasted hour generally doesn't result in an instant and measurable impact. More often than not, we escape from any immediate consequences of our deeds.

If we have not bothered to read a single book in the past ninety days, this lack of discipline does not seem to have any immediate impact on our lives. And since nothing drastic happened to us after the first ninety days, we repeat this error in judgment for another ninety days, and on and on it goes. Why? Because it doesn't seem to matter. And herein lies the great danger. Far worse than not reading the books is not even realizing that it matters!

Those who eat too many of the wrong foods are contributing to a future health problem, but the joy of the moment overshadows the consequence of the future. It does not seem to matter. Those who smoke too much or drink too much go on making these poor choices year after year after year... because it doesn't seem to matter. But the pain and regret of these errors in judgment have only been delayed for a future time. Consequences are seldom instant; instead, they accumulate until the inevitable day of reckoning finally arrives and the price must be paid for our poor choices—choices that didn't seem to matter.

Failure's most dangerous attribute is its subtlety. In the short term those little errors don't seem to make any difference. We do not seem to be failing. In fact, sometimes these accumulated errors in judgment occur throughout a period of great joy and prosperity in our lives. Since nothing terrible happens to us, since there are no instant consequences to capture our attention, we simply drift from one day to the next, repeating the errors, thinking the wrong thoughts, listening to the wrong voices and making the wrong choices. The sky did not fall in on us yesterday; therefore the act was probably harmless. Since it seemed to have no measurable consequence, it is probably safe to repeat.

But we must become better educated than that!

If at the end of the day when we made our first error in judgment the sky had fallen in on us, we undoubtedly would have taken immediate steps to ensure that the act would never be repeated. Like the child who places his hand on a hot burner despite his parents' warnings, we would have had an instantaneous experience accompanying our error in judgment.

Unfortunately, failure does not shout out its warnings as our parents once did. This is why it is imperative to refine our philosophy in order to be able to make better choices. With a powerful, personal philosophy guiding our every step, we become more aware of our errors in judgment and more aware that each error really does matter.

Now here is the great news. Just like the formula for failure, the formula for success is easy to follow: It's a few simple disciplines practiced every day.

Now here is an interesting question worth pondering: How can we change the errors in the formula for failure into the disciplines required in the formula for success? The answer is by making the future an important part of our current philosophy.

Both success and failure involve future consequences, namely the inevitable rewards or unavoidable regrets resulting from past activities. If this is true, why don't more people take time to ponder the future? The answer is simple: They are so caught up in the current moment that it doesn't seem to matter. The problems and the rewards of today are so absorbing to some human beings that they never pause long enough to think about tomorrow.

But what if we did develop a new discipline to take just a few minutes every day to look a little further down the road? We would then be able to foresee the impending consequences of our current conduct. Armed with that valuable information, we would be able to take the necessary action to change our errors into new success-oriented disciplines. In other words, by disciplining ourselves to see the future in advance, we would be able to change our thinking, amend our errors and develop new habits to replace the old.

One of the exciting things about the formula for success—a few simple disciplines practiced every day—is that the results are almost immediate. As we voluntarily change daily errors into daily disciplines, we experience positive results in a very short period of time. When we change our diet, our health improves noticeably in just a few weeks. When we start exercising, we feel a new vitality almost immediately. When we begin reading, we experience a growing awareness and a new level of self-confidence. Whatever new discipline we begin to practice daily will produce exciting results that will drive us to become even better at developing new disciplines.

The real magic of new disciplines is that they will cause us to amend our thinking. If we were to start today to read the books, keep a journal, attend the classes, listen more and observe more, then today would be the first day of a new life leading to a better future. If we were to start today to try harder, and in every way make a conscious and consistent effort to change subtle and deadly errors into constructive and rewarding disciplines, we would never again settle for a life of existence—not once we have tasted the fruits of a life of substance!

All they do for money....

Naked maids, accountants take (it) off in South Africa.

Maids who buff in the buff and plumbers who strip off more than just the grime in your pipes -- these are the services on offer at a new South African company.

Natural Cleaning Co., which bills itself as "the world's only all-naked service company," was founded a month ago by Jean-Paul Reid after he struggled to find work as an accountant in a country with a 23.9 percent unemployment rate.


We have people selling soap going getting naked women in public in China, and now in South Africa....how innovative.
