We respect your religion.. shucks

The Aussie-run Roo Bar on Pattaya's Walking Street is doing its bit for the world and showing the ultimate respect to Islam. Truth be told, most bars should have such signs, which demonstrate a clear respect for the Islamic religion. Looking at some the grizzled truckies sitting around Roo bar, I don't doubt the message is rigidly enforced. The problem is, the moron who erected this sign mistook all Arabs for being Islamic, which they are not. There *are* Christian Arabs for example.

Insulting an EGG? UMNO, how low can you get?


Report lodged against Teresa Kok for insulting egg

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 24, 2008) : The Seputeh Umno Youth division lodged a police report today against Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, claiming she had insulted the Royal Malaysian Police and the egg, which is an essential food of the underprivileged.

The division’s deputy head Alawi Dahalin and several other members lodged the report at the Brickfields police station.

Alawi said he had heard Kok complain about the food she was given while detained under the ISA, at a press conference at the DAP headquarters in Petaling Jaya, shown on the night news on TV on Sept 20, a day after she was released from custody.

He said Kok had said the food she was served was "fit only for dogs". ( She actually said that the food is better slightly better than for the dogs, but who cares if the play of word is more important)

"By saying this, she had insulted the police and the poor. Eggs are an important food for low-income earners and the poor. As an elected representative of the people she should not have said that," he said.

UMNO really is scraping the bottom of the barrel. In the English Newspaper, they were talking about ISA review/ repeal/ ethics. In Utusan, they were talking about eggs and Teresa's alleged insult. What a contrast of academic intelligence. After Muhammad Taib's claim that Teresa insulted the poor by insulting the eggs, the so called Malays NGOs came in with their own statements. If Muhammad Taib is so caring to the poor, perhaps he can spend some Aussie Millions that he brought back to Malaysia undeclared to them.

UMNO is defending the rights of chicken, ducks and other animals now.

Free ISA detainee!

No to ISA.
It is a draconian law that is unjust and need to be repealed! Even the Patriot Act is being challenged in the US and internationally. At least they have an avenue and an independent branch of the government to provide check and balance.

What the BN assemblyman can do in Taiwan.

My friend confirmed that the ground tour for the 50 odd assembleyman costs RM60,000 each, "the best of everything". That is not inclusive of business class airline ticket. So, what do these MPs want to do when they are tired of looking at cows and soy beans? Some brought their golf sets, but i reckon they are looking for something more. Here are the top 5 list:-

Top Pick. Hot Springs - naked.

My first experience of being free , in public. The trick is to progressively move up in tempreture and then jump into the super cold, shrinking-balled water.

Top 2. Oogle at Taiwanese ladies. Forget about the famous bettlenut girls, well dressed girls are very evident in Taiwan. Among the best dressed in Asia, these bevy of beauties are even romantic ...

and flexible. How does she does that and still able to hold hand?
Top 3: Visit the aborigines. Here, the aborigines work for their living, like the rest of the population. And they are very good in what they do. The MPs can learn a bit or two, even from the tribe known as Malas.
Editors Pick 4: Soap opera. Yes, Taiwanese soap operas and densely long and tear drenching. A death can take one episode and marriage is never easy with the evil-in-laws.

Can even putus cinta on sidewalk.

And undress in public to do the shooting.

Top 5: Shapoo ...

And if after shampooing hair is not good enough ( or not enough hair), try this toilet restaurant that dishes out food that is actualy edible.

The rights of the aborigines.

The archaic ISA stole the show, but another important event happened on the 13th September 2008. We were invited to walk with the Orang Asli from Peninsular, Sabah and Sarawak in solidarity for it is the first time that both divide grouped together to present a common front for their rights.

The morning started with a slew of policeman at Central Market.

We were helpless as we were not sure if the 'walkers' are goners? We played hide and seek with clothed and normally clothed policeman/ woman. After feeling harassed, we found out where the walkers are goarded. They were given and taken away the approval to make the walk. Imagine the frustration as different police officers gave affirmation and then took it back. On the night before, they were informed that the approval was declined. Upon appeal, they were given the green light to go ahead until another officer denied their rights when they started walking.
At the block behind central market, the police were heard shouting along with the group. They finally back out since it was a private area.

The gathering was electrifying and their needs are real. Being bumiputras in their own rights and land, it is a disgrace that the government denied them to right to see the King on the premise that the 'political situation is not right". Who asked the police to capture people using ISA on the first place?

Photo from her (blog)
One week ago, I got a reply back from her as I gave her a a link of unsrupulous article that is coming out from UMNO ground roots. From an awefully busy lady and MP, that was what I termed as "personal attention". Then, her name was involved in the "azan" scheme, clearly syndicated as she was a Chinese and *gasp* a Catholic/ Christian. Below is a good research on what actually transpired. For me after reading this, It is more evident that she does not deserved to be ISAed. We prayed for her in our church yesterday , and for all who are unlawfully detained under ISA. Tan Hoon Cheng has been released quickly and she shares her experience. When I look at both their old parents crying, I feel very sad of this inhumane law that is open for misused.

Why YB Teresa Kok was been arrested ? After all the research has been done, here are the summary that was gathered. It all started because one of the members in one small forum asking whether what he heard from one of BN state assembly person speech during a function was held.

How it started ? During that time only residents in Bandar Kinrara, YB Datuk Satim Diman know about this matter. The petition letter. It started back in February 2008, Petition signed by 189 residents.1 ) The petition, signed by 189 residents, was handed over to Serdang state assembly person Datuk Mohamad Satim Diman from Umno in February (before election) and another copy given to the mosque authorities. Masjid Bandar Kinrara.

Invitation to Walk with the Indigenous People

On 13 September 2008, the world will celebrate the first year anniversary of the United Nations Declaration for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (DRIP). Over 370 million indigenous people in 70 countries are affected by this declaration which recognises our right to our distinct social, cultural, economic and political identities.

On Nov. 7, 2007, less than two months after the UN adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples, Bolivia became the first country in the world to adopt the declaration as law when Morales announced the passage of National Law 3760, or the Rights of Indigenous peoples, legislation that is an exact copy of the UN declaration. The Peru congress has repealed two legislative declarations that were in conflict with the rights contained in the DRIP.
In Malaysia, our struggles for recognition of land rights continue. Nonrecognition and uncertainty over our land contributes to our continuing poverty and inability to develop our lands. The government’s development policies are making decisions for our future without our free, prior and informed consent. Though our situations may differ in each state, we are united in our common struggle for recognition of our land, our rights and our identity.
So, for the first time, we as indigenous peoples are gathering together to present to the Supreme Authority of Malaysia, DYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agung, a memorandum to urge the government to locally implement the DRIP and recognise our rights to land and to control, develop, and protect it for the benefit of our community and this nation.

On behalf of JOAS, we would like to invite our fellow indigenous peoples — Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia, Anak Negeri of Sabah and Dayaks and Orang Ulu of Sarawak to come with us on our walk to the Royal Palace. We also invite friends and supporters from civil society, environmental and human rights advocates and those who believe that our place as indigenous peoples within Malaysia needs to be recognised and reaffirmed by the Government and authorities to come with us on a Saturday morning walk and observe this historic event.
We will be gathering at Central Market on 13 September, Saturday and start walking toward the Royal Palace by 10am.

Malaysia, member of parliament goes to Taiwan to study about agricultural technology

You can read all the excuses that Barisan National MP gives to justify this 'study trip"..

-> Useful to debate budget

-> Agriculture is important

-> MPs are the more effective medium to the farmers.

-> MPs need to have adequate knowledge to suggest improvements ( like there is no Mardi, FAMA etc. to learn from)

Bla bla bla..

My only question is , why is this MP going to 'study trip' with golf bags?From Malaysia-insider

Introducing; The Kayans and Penans

I have been working for people in Malaysia irrespective of race, religion or creed. Or at least that is how I believe things should have been except for continual racist remarks that comes out more often than late. Anyway, just want to introduce you to Malaysians who are most 'asli' to the land but are poor and kinda neglected. These are bread and butter issues, not about supremacy. Its about educating their children and doing better than the previous generations. The Kayans and Penans of Sarawak.

5 hours on bone breaker 4 wheel drive where logging roads are better than "Satu lagi project Barisan National " roads. The driver said that the roads are still not done since he was 14 years old. And the new electricity lines were put up but no 'karen/current' just before the general election. Here we are, at the only toilet place.
Tell me, are these pribumis rich, or adequate?
Am doing the Backstreet boys thingie in walking slowly. Going down to the village to say hi.

Start of with the games! I can give instruction in English, means that the kids are educated well .. or they are trying their best in limited resources.
100 over kids attended the camp.

It is amazing that the kids went back to take their lunch and proceeded to finish up their homework with gusto. So much dedication ( kiasuness.. hahah ) but showed their discipline. Very impressed.

And we taught the teachers how to be creative in attracting their students in the classes.
She is 4 years old. Another crooner in the future. She only spoke Kayan language.

Steve is only 4, and doing solo to a song.. in front of 200 people. Wow!

After another solid lunch, we were sent off by a percentage of the villagers. I do miss them.

At another village, we were treated to 'on-the-spot' coconut juice.

Could have done with a better focus. Anyway, I was adopted with the name of Agan Yusop. Agan is a Kelabit name for 'sound of prayer". Mrs Yusop in the middle, and Caroline, Cecilia and Clinton.

These people have tough life surviving the hike of cost of living. We are going to donate some monies for one kampung to buy a grass cutter. And have donated monies to a Penan settlement which was razed by fire. If the Dams are build, i guess scenes like this will be things of past.

Tattoo "kafir" on Non Muslims.- ref Malaysiakini

This writer (Mahaguru58 - he is one blogger whose writting comes out in Malaysiakini, Islamic perspectives. Oh, and if your writting is not pro-him, he will delete it. So, dun waste time posting on his blog esp. if you make effort to get the facts right) makes me hoping mad! Read here on a meeting of so called Muslim bloggers. They are the 'intellectuals" and supposedly far sighted.

"The reality nowadays is that Christians and other Kaffirs tend to zoom in and focus on the screwups by a few Muslims and then lay claim to saying that Islam is bad." - We respect the religion , but fear the worshipers and people in authority who misuse their power. And thanks for calling us Kafirs , all the time.

"... where Christians in Malaysia are prone to interfering into Islamic and Muslims affairs here since the change of leadership in the BN Government." - show me ONE example,please. Is it the one where Saiful was asked to swear by Quran and Muslim/ UMNO leaders says that it is ok to swear on the quran since Christians swear by their bible. ( which you see in US television shows but is not a Christian thingie. dumb dumber)

"I joked with MENJ about suggesting that instead of carrying a card which could get lost, maybe it would be better to have a tattoo on their chest or forehead that they are Kaffir!"- you mean, as the sign of 666? Or Harry Potter with moving graphics? Cool.

"The Christians know about it but refuse to accept the truth that the Gospel of Barnabas contains." - Church leaders and theologians have dismissed this book (wiki) and countless others, and not even part of Christian literature. Some Muslims took advantage (this website set up to propogate the views) since this 'gospel' suggest the link betwen Christianity and Islam. Here is the article from Muslim.net where it was summarized :-

"Imagine you were a Muslim who was told that someone found a lost "book" from God. Among other things, this "Sura" mentioned that Mohammed sailed on a boat to Mecca, and this Sura contradicted the teaching of the Bible and contradicted the Qur’an on ten points. The oldest manuscript of the alleged Sura was written in Italian, which is both not a Mideastern language and did not even exist in the time of Mohammed. Finally, this supposed Sura had some historical customs, which did not occur until 1,000 years later in Europe.
It is safe to say a Muslims would probably have a few questions, to say the least. Before you embrace this medieval forgery as an authentic work that shows the "real" teachings of Jesus, remember that this work contradicts the Qur’an, too."

Italian text, where wines are made in casts like old world wines and not in jars like in Middle East. (Photo)

Islamic scholars have done more studies on this book and now Christian scholars are taking a look. Both side agreed that it is a fabrication from medieval times, years after Jesus or Mohammad. If only the writer reads more than to parrot half truths.

(Drum rolls please )

"I for one am doing what I can within my means to clear the air about Islam and in my own way share what I have come to learn about Islam and what it really is? "- I am honestly confused if your 'good' intent of daawah ( conversion) persuaded me. I am not perfect and I do not like hypocrites. I prefer be repeatedly called a kafir. If i become a muslim, I am not a Muslim but mualaf (convert). Mualaf sounds like a bread, i prefer kafir which sounds like coffee or lime. Thanks, but no thanks.

New Life Care Centre, Port Dickson

The biggest pile of gifts that I have ever witnessed. The kids was trying to grab hold properly at the end of the day as they have so much to 'jaga'.
Before the hurricane, it was tranquil. KFC Port Dickson is a good choice except for the lack of size and volume in their meals. Loads of empty space for..
Newly Weds

Uncle Pok Kuang being fatherly and all.

I got a bigger mouth than you!

Addy's final week here & Karen doing a model thing. The kid was just trying to remember his song lyrics. The centre seemed to have a favourite song that most of the kids will sing.

Auntie Ai Li giving some cash donation to Paul, the caretaker. The Finance team has single handedly organised this personal initiative showing that they are not only about counting monies. :)

Look behind the 2 girls: That is why i called Ai Li an auntie. haha. These 2 girls are the shyiest ever as i wasted shots after shots for them. Good thing now we use digital cameras.That is how I have great teeths like this! Anyway, my appreciation to all donors and lets continue to seek ways to spread goodwill and help to the needy.
