The extras

Hemmm... i found some photos to share.. that did not get into my blog previously. A shop in Beijing sells an assortment of Brands.. including the well know "Placenta" brand. ugghhh
Beijing again. The sign says " Bet the tom mor row". Bet bet bet...
Ah, the famous beef noodle in Tangkak Johor. The soup is sweet to the bone.
Along Seremban Senawang road, a shop owned by a perhaps 80 year old lady ( behind the counter ). The portion are huge at RM3 but she will take her time. This fella has been waiting for 10 minutes while she chatted with her regulars. A must try.
Landlady's thanks you cake for cooking for us. The men are all the ex -tenant of this super auntie. Thanks Autie Margaret. Will eat all you cookings with gusto except rice with durian. :)

Who would you give an "A" grade to?

Here is a hypothetical game. Imagine you are the Law teacher for these 2 chaps below and you read thru their latest homework. They are supposed to give their judgement and write down their reports. Which report do you think is more accurate and deserves the thumbs up for applying law to the book?


If you taken 5 minutes to read each files, you will come to the same conclusion and perhaps similar to that in the law fraternity . That they respected the judgement passed by the dissenting judgement. It is easy to see why. As a non law competent person, the level of detail and logical work is much more evident in Richad Malanjum's writting. Btw, Ahmad Fairuz is the Chief Judge in Malaysia which makes the reading more painful.

Victims so far.
1. Lina, born in a Malay family, cannot choose another religion unless it is sanctioned by a religious court which criminalises apostasy. Is a person born into a belief system, or is it because the parents indoctrinate their children to follow their belief? How much freedom was given to the children to choose their own religion when they reach an age of maturity? A person of true faith does not accept doctrines uncritically. And a religion worthy to embrace will be able to withstand critical examination.
2. Now we have a Zulhadi Omar, who is Chinese but regarded as a Muslim due to a swap at birth 29 years ago to a Malay family, also want to renounce his Malay name and Muslim religion. Should he be treated like Lina?
3. Subashini Rajasingham, a Hindu wife was effectively told to submit to the jurisdiction of the Syariah Court and seek recourse through the Syariah Appeals Court to stop her Muslim convert husband from converting their children without the wife’s permission. Can Muslims expect a non-Muslim to submit to the the Syariah Court? How can children at such a young age decide whether they should follow their father's or their mother's religion? Isn't it better to teach the good values of both parents' religions and let them decide later when they are mature enough to do so?
4. The case of Shamala, a Hindu, fighting custody over her children, age 2 and 4, with her former Hindu, now Muslim, husband. The Syariah Court had issued a warrant of arrest against the wife for failure to attend the Syariah Court when the husband filed custody over the children. This is yet another case of the husband wanting to convert the children to follow his religion in order to gain custody of the children, against the wishes of his former wife.5. The plight of a Malaysian woman, Revathi or Siti Fatimah, who has been forcibly separated from her Hindu husband and 15-month old baby girl on the grounds of her religion.
6. In Malaysia a non-Muslim has to embrace Islam if the other party is a Muslim in an inter-religious marriage, otherwise the marriage is not recognised by the Malays. Isn't this another form of compulsion?

Partner choice 'shaped by father'

Ahoy, my guestimates has always been right. So, does that mean also that if the husband does not look like the father, the wife have difficult relationships with the father during younger days.

Well, for statisticians.. i am sure it does not work this way.

Partner choice 'shaped by father'

TV chef Nigella Lawson could prove the theory ...Much as she might hate to admit it, a woman's choice of partner may depend a lot on her own father.
Scientists have found women who were treated well by their dad during childhood are attracted to men who resemble their father facially.
But the link is lost on women who did not have good relationships with their fathers.
The research, led by a psychologist at Durham University, is published in Evolution and Human Behaviour.
Author Dr Lynda Boothroyd said the findings added to our understanding of how we become attracted to certain types of people.

She said such knowledge could have implications for fields such as relationship counselling

Another Muar Big Shot

Yes, the president of Singapore was from Muar.!!!

Nathan pays ‘sentimental visit’ to Muar
MUAR: This town received a distinguished visitor yesterday.
Singapore President S.R. Nathan and his wife Urmila Nandey arrived at 11am and toured several places, including two temples.
It was a “sentimental visit” for Nathan who had lived here for several years.
He said he wanted to revisit all the places he had known since he was six or seven years old.

Abdullah getting married in a timely manner

Less than 6 days later after the court decided in favour of the Islamization process , Prime Minister of Malaysia decided to marry Jeanne Abdullah. Coincidence on the timing?
Congrats PM .. u got what u want....

The Prime Minister said the Government did not exert any pressure on the judges.
When asked about critics who said the decision was political, he replied: “They must have a hole in their heads if they say it’s a political decision.”
He said no one had hoped for or pressured the court into making any political decision.
“That is emotions (talking). If people allow themselves to be influenced by emotions, they will think of all sorts of things and suspect this and that and make themselves uneasy,” he told reporters after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting yesterday.
Well, i must be too emotional about the whole affair but what if.... Anyway, the fact is that PM's marriage has been discussed in the web and even the name of his potential wife has been mentioned. Sometimes theories are actually truth twisted about. Sorry, but am not too confident on the integrity of the judicial process involved.

The Bar Council supports the minority judgment of Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Richard Malanjum that no court or authority should be easily allowed to have implied powers to curtail rights that are constitutionally granted.

Its president S. Ambiga said the Federal Constitution “is and must remain in law, supreme.”
“In an event of any inconsistency or conflict between the provisions of State Enactments and of the Federal Constitution, the latter must prevail,” she said in a statement yesterday.
Anyway, while PM gets to marry his new love (of course, with the French lady converting in the process) ... Lina will not be able to do the same in Malaysia. That is equality. In Malaysia, it seems that equality is only if you are rich and famous.

Wiki Malaysia

A friend just sent me a link ... quite interesting.Go have a look

Among the excerpts ...************************************************

Essentially a tiny peninsula found to the north of their cousins who live on an even smaller island Singapore, it is a young nation of diverse cultures and races such as F1 Formula-1 and Nascar. Malaysia's timezone is unique because it follows the system of +1/+2 PMT (Predetermined Meeting Time) which is 1 or 2 hours later than PMT. Most foreigners are having difficulty adjusting to this new timezone as they tend to show up 1 or 2 hours earlier than the local counterparts. The nation is moving foward with a vision as a collective community towards the vision of becoming a developed nation by the year 2020, 4040, 5050 or whatever catchy number. Malaysia is a nation in Southeast Asia and is made up of 13 states namely Selengor, Kedoh, Terengggganu, Kelentoh, Pahang, Penang, Malacca, Johor Balu (just north of Singkaypoh), Sabah, Sarawak (which are essentially Malaysia's eastern colonies), Police, Maliuka, Berak and Nogowi. The three federal territories Kuala Laupek, Puterijaya and Labuah don't count as states since they're too small anyway, like Taiwan. Another common state that Malaysians have is denial (no lah, where got?), which incidentally, is a river in Egypt

Other excerpt ( very funny )

Pop Culture
There is also a weird trend popular amongst Malaysian youth (Now believed to have spread to Malaysians from ALL walks of life) in which they will try to imitate the Western way of life, with humorous results. They will also try to live according to what they think is culture of their Western counterparts, which goes to show that they are a sad, sad bunch of pathetic try-hards. When Americans come up with Green Day, Malaysians go around singing American Idiot, acting like they know what the song is about. When Americans have America Idol, Malaysias also have Idol. Only victims of tone deafness or Michael Jackson wannabes need apply. The government has recently waged war on the Black Metal "menace". The kids just want a Hot Topic in KLCC, that's all. Most Malaysians deem white people as 'extra special' and will worship any white person 5 times a day. The only people who can make it big in the music/fashion/TV industry are those with strange heritage. Malaysian+English+Portuguese+Burmese. Like: Paula Malai Ali, Adam Carruthers, Marion Caunter. Mawi doesnt count because he is our national hero. So if you are a white person who is disliked for being a geek or a loser, just move to Malaysia and you will gain instant fame.
[edit] Arabian Culture

Another obvious weird culture is the Malays try to imitate the dress-up of Arabians, they don't want to dress Malay, they will also try to live according to what they think is Arabian culture. Sometimes the government will scold them for blindly imitating the Arab culture, sometimes they were scolded by for not imitating the Arabian dress up and cultures (Yes the government LOVE confusing us).

Can common sense prevail?

Have a bit of read into this to catch up on the reading. Views expressed are different, depending on what a person's value system and line of sight is. I have been championing integrity and unity in my sphere of influence and be let down by the very government that I support. No wonder many are considering to move out of the country.

1. Understand the modern ( last 5 yrs ) Malaysian 'persecution' (

2.The Malay-Islam thoughts about protecting what they have. (

Gambar Lina Joy @ Azlina Jailani yg sangat FAKAP! ( Photo)

p/s: Kalo jumpe org tua kutuk yg sungguh kasihan ini kat mane2 jgn lupe nasihatkan lah dia.
Translation - This is the picture of F*** UP
p/s: If you see this despised old hag anywhere, don't forget to advice her.
Or should it be 'advice' her?
And definately a hot issue for those concerned.

Meeting in Ampang for 50 Islamic NGO with concerted effort to 'pressure the government". Full of people and subsequent lobby activities. Good job guys!

For Full story ( )

Maria - not her real name - is a young Malaysian woman who has lived a secret and sometimes fearful life since she converted from Islam to Christianity.
Apostasy, as it is known, has become one of the most controversial issues in Malaysia today.
Maria became a Christian over a decade ago when she was 18. She says no-one forced her to convert, that she made the decision after studying different religious texts.
Conversion is deemed so sensitive in Malaysia that even the priest who baptised her refused to give her a baptismal certificate.
And, even now, the church she attends asked her to sign a declaration stating the church is not responsible for her conversion.
"My church says if the authorities come, they are not going to stand up for me. I have to stand up for myself," she said.
Not even Maria's family know she has converted.
"If my family find out I am no longer a Muslim they will completely cut me off. That means my name in the family will be erased.
"I could migrate, but the problem is I want to stay in Malaysia, because this is my country. And I love my family. I just want to live peacefully."

But at the end of the day, I agree with Maria that she just wanted to " live peacefully". Can common sense prevail?

Its back to Bahasa Malaysia

Today, Bahasa Melayu is again to be called Bahasa Malaysia to incalcute patriotism and one-ness. The move comes after 21 yrs when Anwar Ibrahim changed the name for his vision of patriotism. Am just not sure if it is too late for the reversal....

But will remember MGF- Dtk Zainudin Maidin's word today

“The Malays, for example, must not see Bahasa Malaysia as a language used (solely) by themselves. If Malays truly want to promote the language regionally or globally, they should not be worried if others use it for religious reasons such as their books and sermons.

Perhaps should un-ban the Kitab Injil?

Oh ya, something fishy about Allantunya's murder investigation. There is now a new 'persecution' team onboard and not much prosecution evidences have been given to the defense lawyers. Sounds funny to me. Hope that for once, we get credible/ competent/ dedicated officers who can nail down the case. Been too long since the government has won a high profile case. Except Lina Joy's case, which is not unexpected. The judges maybe pressured by the potential rioters out of the court. Hurrah to Malaysian rule of Law!!
I just want fairness la ... this has become a religion slant..

Allah-u akhbar!!!
