On this day in Christian History..

I found this book, On This Day in Christian History by Robert J Morgan interesting, 365 inspiring stories by Christian’s leaders of the day. One for each day of the year. A lot of names I have not heard of. Stories of not giving in to despair and can do spirit that will captivate the readers. A good reminder for the modern Christians on what the Christians in the past have gone through.

I recommend this book to those that is in the leadership of the local churches or young youth leaders. Whatever a leader is going through, there is some stories in the book that will help answer their questions or ability. In my opinion I give this book a rating 5 out of 5, very inspiring book.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.

Tan Sri P Ramlee....

Watched History channel, story of the late Tan Sri P Ramlee. For those who do not know his story, can get it from youtube.

So sad his story...towards the end of his life. He died at age 44. So full of one has replace him since.

Borned in Penang, like to sing, someone saw a potential in him and ask him to go to Singapore, Shaw Brothers. He went with his friend...went for audition. Did not get it...but he stayed backed to work as a production crew member. He worked his way up.

When given a chance, he went for it...because famous not only in Singapore and Malaysia, but through out Asia. He came back to Malaysia...caused he wanted to help the production here...and he was promised the moon.

So he left Shaw Brothers and returned to Malaysia. Went reached KL...the studio was bad, cameras old, production crew...amature. Unlike the ones in Singapore. He was crushed. But he persevered. He make do with what he had. But Movies made and starred by him in Malaysia...went down hill. From rags to riches and back to rags.

When ever he met up old friends, he put up a brave if everything was ok. He got a close friend who wanted to help him out...but no banks was willing to finance his movies...he is what you call a 'has been'. From the golden boy in a has been in Malaysia.

One of his actress friend (she became famous while doing his film in Singapore), wanted him to direct her movie...he agree...things were looking up when suddenly he had a heart attack at age 44. But that time, he was so poor that his old faithful PA was worried about the funeral expenses and whether anyone would attend his funeral. His friend came through and gave P Ramlee's wife RM3000 for the expenses.

When word spread out...everyone was shocked...and many turned out at his funeral. Only then did the love for him came out...but before that...was only bad words in the press and so forth. Not many people went to his Malaysia made movies.

Tan Sri P Ramlee was Malaysia's version of Michael Jackson. Only in death did people realise what they loss.

As i watched the documentary, i was sad and angry....Had Malaysia press at that time treated him well...he could have made Malaysia cinema famous. He could have groom film directors and Malaysian actors and actress. i thought about it...he became famous outside Malaya/Malaysia...he decided to come back (beside the promises of the moon) to help Malaysia in film industry. I think i can safely say he was the first to return to Malaysia wanting to help the country out.

January 2011, government is doing something to get Malaysians outside the country to come back to help grow the country. Now...does Malaysia have the facilities?

I really hope those who come back will not get the treatment like Tan Sri P Ramlee experienced. Nowadays news spread very fast. Especially negative ones.

May Tan Sri P Ramlee rest in peace....he will never be forgotten.

Thank you to History channel for doing the documentary.

The author of this book Darrell Ankarlo really went all out in getting facts and figures, even experience firsthand on how illegal immigrants enter his country, USA from the south (Mexico). As I read the book, also think of my own country’s immigrant problem. A lot that succeeded in entering America are involved in criminal acts, bringing negative social woes into America and giving legal migrants a bad name.

This book is also about the human stories on why people leave their country in harsh manner to seek greener pasture. A lot never made it. The US government knows about this problem but are not ‘doing much’ because of votes. If nothing is done, future of US is not looking good.

I recommend this book to those that is in the public service. Control illegal immigrants before it gets out of hand. In my opinion I give this book a rating 5 out of 5. Once you start reading it, no putting down.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.

Great Stuff Chile...

Thank God for a successful rescue. Great team effort from everyone involved. May people learn from this for future reference. As for people's safety...may the government and private sector make sure it will not happend again.

From CNN.

After miners' successful rescue, focus shifts to safety, newfound fameBy the CNN Wire StaffOctober 14, 2010 -- Updated 0816 GMT (1616 HKT)

(CNN) -- After 69 days and a cost as high as $20 million, 33 miners are finally freed from a mine in northern Chile. To loud applause, Chilean President Sebastian Pinera placed a metal cap on top of the rescue hole early Thursday and marked the end of a rescue operation that captivated the globe.

But in a way, the story is just beginning -- both for the miners, who now must live with their new status as folk heroes and the spotlight that comes with it, and the government, whose attention turns to protecting workers' safety.

"I hope this will never happen again," said shift foreman Luis Urzua, the last man out of the gold and copper mine, as Pinera embraced him.

Rescue worker Manuel Gonzalez, the first human being to descend more than 2,000 feet in a custom-made capsule to reach the miners, was the last of six rescuers to ascend. He waved and bowed before an underground camera before climbing into the capsule for the last time.

Colleagues and onlookers cheered as Gonzalez surfaced, with one person quipping, "Did you leave everything in order down there? Are the beds made? You didn't turn off the light."

But the situation wasn't entirely light-hearted. He too urged the president to push for worker safety.

"I hope we have learned from it and that Chilean mining will be different," he told Pinera. "I hope that things will be done correctly .. especially dealing with small mining concerns - that things be done right.," Gonzalez told the president. "This is what I want."

As worldwide exultation over the rescue begins to settle, more daunting tasks loom -- understanding why the mine collapsed on August 5, and making sure such an incident doesn't happen again.

Pinera said the mine "never should have functioned as it was functioning; it had a long history of violations."

"I want to announce to the Chilean workers and the employers that we are going to make a new pact in which the life, dignity and protection of workers will be the focus of government concern," he said.

Representatives of the mine owner, the San Esteban Mining Co., have previously said they will cooperate fully with Chilean authorities and the Chilean Congress in their inquiries about what went wrong at the mine.

Pinera put the price of the rescue mission at $10 million to $20 million.

"Every peso was well spent," he said.

Most of the miners "really are in good condition," said Chilean Health Minister Jaime Manalich. Some, he said, may be able to leave the hospital Thursday afternoon.
When they do, their lives will not be the same.

Mario Sepulveda, the second miner extracted, said he hoped to maintain a low-key profile.

"The only thing I ask, personally, is that you please not treat us like celebrities or journalists," he said. "I want to continue being treated like Mario Antonio Sepulveda Espinace, the worker, the miner. I love that, and I think that in some shape, way or form I want to continue working."

However, that's unlikely. The men, ranging in age from 19 to 63, will feel the crush of media requests and offers from book publishers, movie and television producers.

They may also have to speak to lawyers about a lawsuit filed against their employer.

They will be inundated with the warm wishes of spectators and peppered with questions from strangers. The Chilean Mining Ministry has set up a website to collect greetings, and there are already many from Italy, China, the United States and a dozen other nations.
Carlos Mamani, the only non-Chilean trapped, has personally been promised help from his country's head of state: Bolivian President Evo Morales. He had only been working in the mine for five days before the collapse, and his father-in-law has told reporters that Mamani has decided to never work in a mine again.

A special invitation to visit Elvis Presley's Tennessee home awaited Edison Pena, a die-hard Elvis fan who led his fellow trapped miners in sing-alongs to pass time while waiting for their rescue.

How the miners handle the attention could progress or hinder their recovery, experts said.

"It's a great problem for regular people, who are subjected to intense publicity and focus," said Leo Braudy, author of the book, "The Frenzy of Renown: Fame and Its History."

"They're lionized; and for some of them, it destroyed them," he said, referring to an incident in which a paramedic who rescued baby Jessica McClure from a Texas well took his life years later.

For now, experts say, the men should relish the joyful homecoming after their harrowing ordeal.

The rescue began Tuesday night. One by one, the miners ascended to freedom in a red, white and blue metal capsule.

The first to arrive was a beaming Florencio Avalos, who stepped out of the "Fenix-2" capsule, named for the mythical bird that rose from ashes and then the others followed.

Each time the capsule approached the earth's surface, its cargo was heralded by the wail of a siren and applause from relatives and rescuers assembled nearby. Family members, who bit their lips as each man began his ascent, broke into smiles as they emerged.

The rejoicing was loud throughout Chile and the world.

In the capital, Santiago, hundreds wept and embraced as they watched the rescue on a flickering big screen TV set up in a square. Chants of "Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le!" rang from the windows of the hospital where the men were eventually taken.

Around the world, strangers sat glued to television sets.

As they arrived, some of the miners signaled a thumbs-up. Others waved Chilean flags. One led the crowd in a chant for Chile. Some dropped to their knees and prayed. Mostly, though, they embraced their families.

During the course of the day Wednesday, the pace of the rescues increased from one per hour to three, progress that was measured by the spinning of the metal wheel that let out and then shortened the cable attached to the capsule -- a makeshift elevator with only two stops.

The last to surface was Urzua, the 54-year-old shift boss, who insisted on going after all the others -- 22-and-a-half hours after the rescue began.

Urzua first established contact with the outside world on August 22, 17 days after the mine collapsed.

Urzua also divided the cans of tuna that helped keep the men alive until they were discovered, and it was he who organized the 32 others into three work shifts and pored over diagrams that helped rescuers plan the men's escape.

"He was a shift boss who made us proud," Pinera told Chileans in a televised address. "I want to thank the families of the miners who maintained faith -- this faith that ended up moving mountains."

some one posted this in FB....thought of sharing it.

What if the Chile incident happened here in passing tot...

Once in a while, as though to give us a break from bombardments of sad news vis a vis humanity, we will be reminded of it. As you are reading this now, 33 trapped miners in chile are being rescued.

Indeed, watching the rescued workers being portalled through a man made hole in a special vessel designed for the rescue, I cannot help but wonder, what would have been the fate of our miners should they be trapped after such devastating catastrophe hit them.

We all know, that it is the norm here in Malaysia, that unless you are a "somebody" or related to that somebody, then most likely only simple rescue would be possible. At this point in time, I fail to see Malaysians being able to conduct such rescue efforts. I suspect, we, the Malaysian have lost the sense of value of life. Of course, this is a different scenario, when it comes to rescuing "somebody"s.... Although I do value even the lives of some worthless politicians, but it gives me the goosebumps how much it would cost to save VIPs like saaaaaay, Rosie ( yes, yes, Rosie from Phua Chu Kang, if you insist )..for instance...imagine how much tax payers money wasted to come up with the rescue vessel you see in that video, not to mention the extra diameter of the hole they need to create....the only suspense moment felt for most Malaysians should we rescue such characters would be, "Oh dear, do you think her buttocks will get through that small bore hole?". And of course being Malaysians, bookies would have a field day taking bets.

I also cannot help but imagine some of the possible statements some may avow, should this kind of mishap happen in Malaysia (God forbid..really,.... God forbid):

BN : Don't worry, those minors, oh sorry, we mean miners will be rescued as soon as we can. We always take care of the minors....we mean, the miners....
Under their breaths : Aisey maaan, tak cukup bajet la...GE dah dekat...macamana ni?

Nik Aziz : Saving the infidels by taking them out of the hole is like making the hole and puting the Muslims in it. Umpama melepas anjing tersepit. Lepas tu kena samak 7 baldi air, satu baldi lumpur. Eh, tak kiraaaaa....walaupun pegang anjing sekarang lagi bersih dari pegang lumpur....hukum tetap hukum tu...

Samy Vellu : I think we should build a toll somewhere in between the tunnel to sponsor the cost of rescuing.

Karpal Singh and probably Kit siang : We must investigate as to why there was such dreadful incident happening at the mines. The earthquake was just a minute richter on scale, the vibration is just enough to cause orgasm for the frustated widows and divorces. Who is the people behind the company that owns the mine. And we will not hesitate to take action.

Hishamudin : We should use our Keris to dig the hole...after all, it did a good job digging holes in between the ears of some Malays.

Karam Singh Walia : Harapkan pagar, pagar lagi tak boleh harap.

Anwar Ibrahim : Tight hole? Where??!!!

Ibrahim Ali : A united rescue team in Malaysia? We'll unite the Malays first, so that Malaysians will be united as a result of this, and then, we rescue them. Otherwise don't tokshit tree taims.

Rosmah : We have brought the matter up in our first First Lady Summit, and they have voted to use my video that I dueted with Mawi, as a tool to create a hole in the earth for the rescue efforts.

Well guys and gals, got to rush to work...if anyone can come up with more possible statements, please feel free to jot it down.. ;->

Outlive your life by Max Lucado...

When I saw the cover of this book a picture of a young child by the sea side, it seems to represent the potential of what a ‘child’ can do to make a difference in this world. A child’s view of the world is simple and innocent.

This book is about not giving up and helping others to grow. Pray for wisdom and guidance, God will make it happened. Nothing is impossible through God. When we pray, pray like a child’s, innocent and no thoughts of ‘what will benefit me if I...’

The world now needs prayer more than ever. This book will guide us on the right path for hope. Hope not on human strength but on God’s grace and mercy. We do the 99% work by praying and let God do the 1%.

I recommend this book to those that is feeling down and for those that wants to do charity project or God’s work. In my opinion I give this book a rating 5 out of 5. Once you start reading it, no putting down.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.

Stupid stunt...

Some people sure got nothing better to do.

What happens when they in return start to burn bibles? These actions will only make matter worse.

Kinda think maybe some one pay them to burn...start a new war. Who benefit from this? Arms dealers/war mongers.

Such a shame...and they call themselves Christians.


Planned Quran-burning could endanger troops, Petraeus warnsBy the CNN Wire StaffSeptember 7, 2010 -- Updated 0853 GMT (1653 HKT)

(CNN) -- The U.S. commander in Afghanistan has criticized a Florida church's plan to burn copies of the Quran on September 11, warning the demonstration "could cause significant problems" for American troops overseas.

"It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort in Afghanistan," Gen. David Petraeus said in a statement issued Monday.

With about 120,000 U.S. and NATO-led troops still battling al Qaeda and its allies in the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban movement, Petraeus warned that burning Qurans "is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems -- not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community."

Petraeus said he was concerned by the political repercussions of the church's plan.

"Even the rumor that it might take place has sparked demonstrations such as the one that took place in Kabul yesterday," he said. "Were the actual burning to take place, the safety of our soldiers and civilians would be put in jeopardy and accomplishment of the mission would be made more difficult."

He said extremists would use images of burning Qurans to inflame public opinion and incite violence.

"And this would, again, put our troopers and civilian in jeopardy and undermine our efforts to accomplish the critical mission here in Afghanistan," he said.

The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, plans to mark the anniversary of al Qaeda's September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington by burning copies of the Muslim holy book. The church insists the event is "neither an act of love nor of hate," but a warning against what it calls the threats posed by Islam.

The event has drawn criticism from Muslims in the United States and overseas, with thousands of Indonesians gathering outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Sunday to protest the planned Quran burning.

"The burning is not only an insult to the holy Quran, but an insult to Islam and Muslims around the world," said Muhammad Ismail, a spokesman for the hard-line Indonesian Muslim group Hizb ut-Tahrir.

One of Petraeus' deputies, Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, told CNN's "The Situation Room" that event "has already stirred up a lot of discussion and concern" among Afghans.

"We very much feel that this can jeopardize the safety of our men and women that are serving over here in the country," said Caldwell, the head of NATO efforts to train Afghan security forces.

Caldwell said American troops "are over here to defend the rights of American citizens, and we're not debating the First Amendment rights that people have." But he added, "What I will tell you is that their very actions will in fact jeopardize the safety of the young men and women who are serving in uniform over here and also undermine the very mission that we're trying to accomplish."

"I would hope they would understand that there are second- and third-order effects that will occur that will affect that young man and woman who's out there on point for America, serving their nation today, because of their actions back in the United States," he said.

In a statement on its website, the Dove World Outreach Center said it plans to burn Qurans "to warn about the teaching and ideology of Islam, which we do hate as it is hateful." Its pastor, Terry Jones, has written a book entitled "Islam is of the Devil," and the church sells coffee mugs and shirts featuring the phrase. But the church says its animus is not aimed at individual Muslims.

"We love, as God loves, all the people in the world and we want them to come to a knowledge of the truth," it states.

Jones canceled a planned appearance on CNN's "Rick's List" to discuss the controversy Monday afternoon. Plemon el-Amin, the imam of an Atlanta, Georgia, mosque, said that Jones' criticism of Islam is "really quite uninformed."

"But in America, there is the freedom to be ignorant," el-Amin said. "The only problem is in the world, many people don't understand that particular freedom. So what he is doing is like shouting fire in a theater, in a world theater, and people are upset."

El-Amin said Jones has boasted of never reading the Quran, so "He doesn't know that he's going to burn a book that has some of the most beautiful passages about Christ Jesus throughout, as well as Moses, Abraham and all of the prophets he reads about and says he follows in the Bible." But he said the best strategy would be to ignore Jones, "like we do people on corners saying the end of the world is coming."

Other religious organizations have joined with U.S. Muslim groups to oppose the Quran-burning. The National Association of Evangelicals is urging the church to cancel the event, warning it could cause worldwide tension between the two religions, and Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Hindu leaders in Gainesville have organized a "Gathering for Peace, Understanding and Hope" the night before the scheduled Quran burning.

In addition, an armed Christian organization that had pledged to protect the Dove World Outreach Center withdrew its support from the Quran-burning last week, stating the event "may diminish the work of the Holy Spirit to witness to Muslims."

That group's founder, Shannon Carson, said he agrees with the church's stance on Islam, which he called a cult "that is invading our nation." But he complained that the "liberal media" is using stories on Jones's plans "to distract, divide and enrage the public."

So sad 3..

An inspector who can't speak English? So what happens if tourist make police report in English?

Also ask them to go back to their country since they can;t speak Bahasa Malaysia?

Maybe he is piss off because the 51 year old can't speak Bahasa Malaysia. Maybe she was rude to him...we don;t know.

But what ever it is...don;t say go back to China or India to people who are born here.

Sad to say...don;t think any thing will happen. Unlike Namewee...i think he will be charge in court and find guilty, as a lesson to others.

Students naughty - "go back China and India"

Students who don't respect puasa month - "go back China"

Students who did not culturely dress properly and being rude - "go back China"

Old people who can;t speak Bahasa Malaysia to make police report - "go back China"

Racism: Cop under probe

KUALA LUMPUR: A police inspector who allegedly told a 51-year-old snatch theft victim to “balik China” (return to China) if she could not speak Bahasa Malaysia is being investigated.

City police chief DCP Datuk Muhammad Sabtu Osman said the inspector, in his 30s, was from the Sentul district police headquarters. He is being investigated by the city police headquarters disciplinary committee headed by the Chief Police Officer.

The officer, who is attached to the Criminal Investigation Depart­ment, has been temporarily relieved of his duties pending investigations. He is now handling administrative work.

He allegedly made the remark to housewife Loh See Moi, who was a snatch theft victim on Aug 24 in Kepong.

“The police force will not defend and protect any policemen, if they are guilty of wrongdoing,” said DCP Muhammad Sabtu.

Loh, from Selayang, lodged a police report against the inspector at the Jinjang police station yesterday, alleging that he had uttered these words: “Jika tak tahu cakap Bahasa Melayu, balik China” (go back to China if you can’t speak Bahasa Malaysia).

In her report, Loh said she had gone to the Kepong police station accompanied by her daughter Fong Ay Lian, 26, to lodge a report following the snatchtheft.

She said at the inspector’s office, her daughter spoke to the officer in English but he refused to entertain her as she was not the complainant.

Then as Loh began to relate her ordeal in English, the inspector made the remark.

Loh said she asked him in Bahasa Malaysia why he made the remark, saying that she was a Malaysian.

DCP Muhammad urged the public to lodge a report or complaint with their respective district police chiefs if they encountered problems with policemen or officers.

“I will be very disappointed if the allegations against my officer are true. We will investigate the matter thoroughly,’’ he added.

Good speech...

Got this from email.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah’s speech at the United Kingdom and Eire Council for Malaysian Students (UKEC)’s Fourth Malaysian Students Leadership Seminar in Kuala Lumpur on 31st July, 2010.

Now let’s have a discussion — Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah

“Thank you for inviting me to speak with you. I am truly honoured. I have played some small role in the life of this nation, but having been on the wrong side of one or two political fights with the powers that be, I am not as close to the young people of this country as I would hope to be. History, and the 8 o’clock news, is written by the victors. In recent years the government’s monopoly of the media has been destroyed by the technology revolution.

You could say I was also a member of the UKEC. Well I was, except that belonged to the predecessor of the UKEC by more than fifty years, The Malayan Students Union of the UK and Eire. I led this organisation in 1958/59. I was then a student of Queen’s University at Belfast, in a rather cooler climate than Kota Bharu’s.

Your invitation to participate in the MSLS was prefaced by an essay which calls for an intellectually informed activism. I congratulate you on this. The Youth of today, you note, “will chart the future of Malaysia.” You say you “no longer want to be ignored and leave the future of our Malaysia at the hands of the current generation.” You “want to grab the bull by the horns… and have a say in where we go as a society and as a nation. “I feel the same, actually. A lot of Malaysians feel the same. They are tired of being ignored and talked down to by swaggering mediocrities.

You are right. The present generation in power has let Malaysia down.
But also you cite two things as testimony of the importance of youth and of student activism to this country, the election results of 2008 and “the Prime Minister’s acknowledgement of the role of youth in the development of the country.”
So perhaps you are a little way yet from thinking for yourselves. The first step in “grabbing the bull by the horns” is not to require the endorsement of the Prime Minister, or any Minister, for your activism.

Politicians are not your parents. They are your servants. You don’t need a government slogan coined by a foreign PR agency to wrap your project in. You just go ahead and do it.

When I was a student our newly formed country was already a leader in the postcolonial world. We were sought out as a leader in the Afro-Asian Conference which inaugurated the Non-Aligned Movement and the G-77. The Afro-Asian movement was led by such luminaries as Zhou En-lai, Nehru, Kwame Nkrumah, Soekarno. Malaysians were seen as moderate leaders capable of mediating between these more radical leaders and the West. We were known for our moderation, good sense and reliability.
We were a leader in the Islamic world as ourselves and as we were, without our leaders having to put up false displays of piety. His memory has been scrubbed out quite systematically from our national consciousness, so you might not know this or much else about him, but it was Tengku Abdul Rahman established our leadership in the Islamic world by coming up with the idea of the OIC and making it happen.

Under his leadership Malaysia led the way in taking up the anti-apartheid cause in the Commonwealth and in the United Nations, resulting in South Africa’s expulsion from these bodies.
Here was a man at ease with himself, made it a policy goal that Malaysia be “a happy country”. He loved sport and encouraged sporting achievement among Malaysians. He was owner of many a fine race horse.
He called a press conference and had a beer with his stewards when his horse won at the Melbourne Cup. He had nothing to hide because his great integrity in service was clear to all. Now we have religious and moral hypocrites who cheat, lie and steal in office but never have a drink, who propagate an ideologically shackled education system for all Malaysians while they send their own kids to elite academies in the West.

Speaking of football. You’re too young to have experienced the Merdeka Cup, which Tunku started. We had a respectable side in the sixties and seventies. Teams from across Asia would come to play in Kuala Lumpur. Teams such as South Korea and Japan, whom we defeated routinely. We were one of the better sides in Asia. We won the Bronze medal at the Asian games in 1974 and qualified for the Moscow Olympics in 1980. Today our FIFA ranking is 157 out of 203 countries. That puts us in the lowest quartile, below Maldives (149), the smallest country in Asia, with just 400,000 people living about 1.5 metres above sea level who have to worry that their country may soon be swallowed up by climate change. Here in ASEAN we are behind Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, whom we used to dominate, and our one spot above basketball-playing Philippines.
The captain of our illustrious 1970’s side was Soh Chin Aun. Arumugam, Isa Bakar, Santokh Singh, James Wong and Mokhtar Dahari were heroes whose names rolled off the tongues of our schoolchildren as they copied them on the school field. It wasn’t about being the best in the world, but about being passionate and united and devoted to the game.

It was the same in Badminton, except at one time we were the best in the world. I remember Wong Peng Soon, the first Asian to win the All-England Championship, and then just dominated it throughout the 1950. Back home every kid who played badminton in every little kampong wanted to call himself Wong Peng Soon. There was no tinge of anybody identifying themselves exclusively as Chinese, Malays, Indian. Peng Soon was a Malaysian hero. Just like each of our football heroes. Now we do not have an iota of that feeling. Where has it all gone?

I don’t think it’s mere nostalgia that that makes us think there was a time when the sun shone more brightly upon Malaysia. I bring up sport because it has been a mirror of our more general performance as nation. When we were at ease with who we were and didn’t need slogans to do our best together, we did well. When race and money entered our game, we declined. The same applies to our political and economic life.

Soon after independence we were already a highly successful developing country. We had begun the infrastructure building and diversification of our economy that would be the foundation for further growth. We carried out an import-substitution programme that stimulated local productive capacity. From there we started an infrastructure buildup which enabled a diversification of the economy leading to rapid industrialisation. We carried out effective programmes to raise rural income and help with landless with programmes such as FELDA. Our achievements in achieving growth with equity were recognised around the world. We were ahead of Our peer group in economic development were South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan, and we led the pack. I remember we used to send technical consultants to advise the South Koreans.

By the lates nineties, however, we had fallen far behind this group and were competing with Thailand and Indonesia. Today, according to the latest World Investment Report, FDI into Malaysia is at about a twenty year low. We are entering the peer group of Cambodia, Myanmar and the Philippines as an investment destination. Thailand, despite a month long siege of the capital, attracted more FDI than we did last year. Indonesia and Vietnam far outperform us, not as a statistical blip but consistently. Soon we shall have difficulty keeping up with The Philippines. This, I believe, is called relegation. If we take into account FDI outflow, the picture is even more interesting. Last year we received US$1.38 billion (RM4.40 billion) in investments but US$ 8.04 billion flowed out. We are the only country in Southeast Asia which has suffered nett FDI outflow. I am not against outward investment. It can be a good thing for the country. But an imbalance on this scale indicates capital flight, not mere investment overseas.

Without a doubt, Malaysia is slipping. Billions have been looted from this country, and billions more are being siphoned out as our entire political structure crumbles. Yet we are gathered here in comfort, in a country that still seems to ‘work.’ Most of the time. This is due less to good management than to the extraordinary wealth of this country. You were born into a country of immense resources both natural and cultural and social. We have been wearing down this advantage with mismanagement and corruption. With lies, tall tales and theft. We have a political class unwilling or unable to address the central issue of the day because they have grown fat and comfortable with a system built on lies and theft. It is easy to fall into the lull caused by the combination of whatever wealth has not been plundered and removed and political class that lives in a bubble of sycophancy.

I urge you not to fall into that complacency. It is time to wake up. That waking up can begin here, right here, at this conference. Not tomorrow or the day after but today. So let me, as I have the honour of opening this conference, suggest the following:
Overcome the urge to have our hopes for the future endorsed by the Prime Minister. He will have retired, and I’ll be long gone when your future arrives. The shape of your future is being determined now.

Resist the temptation to say “in line with” when we do something. Your projects, believe it or not, don’t have to be in line with any government campaign for them to be meaningful. You don’t need to polish anyone’s apple. Just get on with what you plan to do.
Do not put a lid on certain issues as “sensitive” because someone said they are. Or it is against the Social Contract. Or it is “politicisation”. You don’t need to have your conversation delimited by the hyper-sensitive among us. Sensitivity is often a club people use to hit each other with. Reasoned discussion of contentious issues builds understanding and trust. Test this idea.
It’s not “uber-liberal” to ask for an end to having politics, economic policy, education policy and everything and the kitchen sink determined by race. It’s called growing up. Go look up “liberal” in a dictionary.

Please resist the temptation to say Salam 1 Malaysia, or Salam Vision 2020 or Salam Malaysia Boleh, or anything like that. Not even when you are reading the news. It’s embarrassing. I think it’s OK to say plain old salam the way the Holy Prophet did, wishing peace unto all humanity. You say you want to “promote intellectual discourse.” I take that to mean you want to have reasonable, thought-through and critical discussions, and slogans are the enemy of thought. Banish them.
Don’t let the politicians you have invited here talk down to you.

Don’t let them tell you how bright and “exuberant” you are, that you are the future of the nation, etc. If you close your eyes and flow with their flattery you have safely joined the caravan, a caravan taking the nation down a sink hole. If they tell you the future is in your hands kindly request that they hand that future over first. Ask them how come the youngest member of our cabinet is 45 and is full of discredited hacks? Our Merdeka cabinet had an average age below thirty. You’re not the first generation to be bright. Mine wasn’t too stupid. But you could be the first generation of students and young graduates in fifty years to push this nation through a major transformation. And it is a transformation we need desperately.

You will be told that much is expected of you, much has been given to you, and so forth. This is all true. Actually much has also been stolen from you. Over the last twenty five years, much of the immense wealth generated by our productive people and our vast resources has been looted. This was supposed to have been your patrimony. The uncomplicated sense of belonging fully, wholeheartedly, unreservedly, to this country, in all it diversity, that has been taken from you.

Our sense of ourselves as Malaysians, a free and united people, has been replaced by a tale of racial strife and resentment that continues to haunt us. The thing is, this tale is false.

The most precious thing you have been deprived of has been your history. Someone of my generation finds it hard to describe what must seem like a completely different country to you now. Malaysia was not born in strife but in unity. Our independence was achieved through a demonstration of unity by the people in supporting a multiracial government led by Tengku Abdul Rahman. That show of unity, demonstrated first through the municipal elections of 1952 and then through the Alliance’s landslide victory in the elections of 1955, showed that the people of Malaya were united in wanting their freedom.

We surprised the British, who thought we could not do this.

Today we are no longer as united as we were then. We are also less free. I don’t think this is a coincidence. It takes free people to have the psychological strength to overcome the confines of a racialised worldview. It takes free people to overcome those politicians bent on hanging on to power gained by racialising every feature of our life including our football teams.
Hence while you are at this conference, let me argue, that as an absolute minimum, we should call for the repeal of unjust and much abused Acts which are reversals of freedoms that we won at Merdeka.

I ask you in joining me in calling for the repeal of the ISA and the OSA. These draconian laws have been used, more often than not, as political tools rather than instruments of national security. They create a climate of fear. These days there is a trend among right wing nationalist groups to identify the ISA with the defence of Malay rights. This is a self-inflicted insult on Malay rights. As if our Constitutional protections needed draconian laws to enforce them. I wish they were as zealous in defending our right not to be robbed by a corrupt ruling elite. We don’t seem to be applying the law of the land there, let alone the ISA.

I ask you to join me in calling for the repeal of the Printing and Publications Act, and above all, the Universities and Colleges Act. I don’t see how you can pursue your student activism with such freedom and support in the UK and Eire while forgetting that your brethren at home are deprived of their basic rights of association and expression by the UCA. The UCA has done immense harm in dumbing down our universities.

We must have freedom as guaranteed under our Constitution. Freedom to assemble, associate, speak, write, move. This is basic. Even on matters of race and even on religious matters we should be able to speak freely, and we shall educate each other.
It is time to realise the dream of Dato’ Onn and the spirit of the Alliance, of Tunku Abdul Rahman. That dream was one of unity and a single Malaysian people. They went as far as they could with it in their time. Instead of taking on the torch we have reversed course. The next step for us as a country is to move beyond the infancy of race-based parties to a non-racial party system. Our race-based party system is the key political reason why we are a sick country, declining before our own eyes, with money fleeing and people telling their children not to come home after their studies.

So let us try to take 1 Malaysia seriously. Millions have been spent putting up billboards and adding the term to every conceivable thing. We even have cuti-cuti 1 Malaysia. Can’t take a normal holiday anymore.

This is all fine. Now let us see if it means anything. Let us see the Government of the day lead by example. 1 Malaysia is empty because it is propagated by a Government that promotes the racially-based party system that is the chief cause of our inability to grow up in our race relations. Our inability to grow up in our race relations is the chief reason why investors, and we ourselves, no longer have confidence in our economy. The reasons why we are behind Maldives in football, and behind the Philippines in FDI, are linked.

So let us take 1 Malaysia seriously, and convert Barisan Nasional into a party open to all citizens. Let it be a multiracial party open to direct membership. PR will be forced to do the same or be left behind the times. Then we shall have the vehicles for a two party, non-race-based system.

If Umno, MIC or MCA are afraid of losing supporters, let them get their members to join this new multiracial party. PR should do the same. Nobody need feel left out. Umno members can join en masse. The Hainanese Kopitiam Association can join whichever party they want, or both parties en masse if they like. We can maintain our cherished civil associations, however we choose to associate. But we drop all communalism when we compete for the ballot. When our candidates stand for Elections, let them ever after stand only as Malaysians, better or worse.

Now let’s have a discussion.”

Result of what prinicipals and politicians did....

If this story is true...may those buggers who do such a thing have a terrible karma coming their way.

It Happened to Me, It Could Happen to You
by Lau Chee Kin on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 8:14pm

The typical Merdeka Eve night started with an urge to watch the fireworks celebration in KLCC ended up in a racist attack by a group of teenagers. So, me and a friend of mine thought of a good solution to avoid the traffic jam in that area by walking from the office in Jalan Imbi through Pavillion, to Jalan Kia Peng through Convention Center to KLCC.

Sounds like an ideal plan as the path is a frequent walkway and is even advertised in Pavillion as 'Bridge to KLCC'. (Just to note that we didnt go into any dark alley)

At 10.15pm, we started walking towards Pavillion, stopped to get a drink at Starbucks and proceeded ahead. As we walk, we came across people from various races and foreign tourists along the way.

On Jalan Kia Peng, we walked past Novotel Hotel, Hakka Restaurant, Menara HLA and was reaching the junction of Jalan Pinang when a group of about 10 teenage Malay youngsters walking from the opposite direction. They looked like typical youths, giggling and talking to each other.

As we walked past them, suddenly one of them turned around and started to make a flying kick to my friend. Noticing the 'fun' he is having, his other friends started to do the same to me. It was so sudden and all I was thinking at the moment was, "What the hell did we do to them?"

Both of us ended up kneeling on the ground for a moment before more kicks and punches came flying in. Even though both of us had our tripod strapped across our shoulder, we were too shocked to react to it. Eventually one punch landed right on my right forehead and I started to bleed profusely. Seeing that they eventually stopped and walked away.WALKED AWAY, damn it. They were not even afraid to run but just WALKED AWAY like winning a game or something.The last thing I remember hearing from one of them was "Baliklah ke negara asal"

Imagine hearing this statement on Merdeka Eve.

I knew I was bleeding but I didnt know how bad. I could feel the right side of my head swollen and wet but I did not try to look at myself through a mirror. My friend also suffered bruises on the body and face. By that time there were more people walking around us but they did not stop to see what was wrong. I don't blame them, it was a poorly lit area just in front of Menara Pinang. We recovered and continued walking towards the Convention Center. The guards were symphatetic to let us in to use the washroom to clean up. It was then I saw my bloody face.

I did not take a picture of myself then as it is not my intention to send a horror message. This is not a message of sympathy. It's a account of a random person walking on a street.

Eventually after cleaning up, we walked back to the Police Booth in Pavillion to relate the incident. The response from the officer: "This cannot happen, we have all our men on the streets" (Well, not on the street we got beaten up ...)

Apparently informing the police booth stationed in a public area is NOT MAKING A POLICE REPORT. WTF? Apparently we have to go to a Hospital, get some treatment and make a complain/report at the police counter there. I would be dead by then, ain't I?

Is this how the police maintained that they have improved street crimes? By not noting down petty crimes like gang bang which did not result into hospitalization? Would we be taken seriously if only we landed in the hospital?

What we did was, we went back to the office, rested til this morning, went to a nearby clinic to get some bandages and medic.What else to do? I can't identify my assailants, and my wounds are not death-threatening.

If I had not wanted to celebrate Independence Day, would I walk or drive to the venue?

If I was not thirsty would I stop for 5 mins to get my drink and missed them completely?

If I had held my tripod as a defensive weapon earlier, would I save myself or get more beating instead?

If I'm not Chinese, would I get the same 'treatment'?

All I want to say in the end is ...

Forward this to your friends (so that they will be careful on the streets)

Forward this to your 'friendly police' (so that they know the procedure is wrong)

Forward this to any politician/newspaper (so that he/she can be the champion for highlighting this to the government)

Stupid acts...

Really hope people of all ages learn from this. Do not offend people's place of worship. It is a big NO NO !!!

Sunday August 29, 2010
All is forgiven for teenage 'surau vandals'

SEREMBAN: Five hours after being charged with committing mischief and pleading guilty to splashing paint on a surau, three teenagers attended a buka puasa event at the very venue they had vandalised.

The youngsters, aged between 16 and 17, were seen offering their apologies to surau-goers before joining them for the buka puasa at Taman Pulai Impian on Friday.

The three are now awaiting judgment on their case and could be jailed for up to two years, fined or both under section 427 of the Penal Code for committing mischief.

Wong Seow Wai, whose son was one of those involved in the incident, said the boys had learnt their lesson and realised the seriousness of their foolish act.

“Let this be an example for other youngsters who might not know that it is a crime to defile a place of worship.

“As parents, we will make sure our children do not repeat their mistake,” he said, adding that it was now up to the court to pass judgment on the teenagers.

Surau committee head Mohd Hasbi Ismail, who spoke to the teenagers and their parents during the gathering, said he was glad the issue had been resolved.

“It’s nice to see the residents together under one roof. This residential area was built four years ago and this is the first time that we’ve all come together.

“We have accepted the boys’ apologies and hope that incidents like this will not recur anywhere in the country,” he said.

The buka puasa event, organised by the state MCA with the co-operation of the surau committee and neighbourhood Rukun Te­­tangga unit, was held to foster closer ties among the residents irrespective of race, religion or background.

State MCA chief Senator Datuk Dr Yeow Chai Tiam hoped this would be the first and the last incident of its kind.

“These boys were completely ignorant that their thoughtless act could cause religious sensitivity.

“Although what they did was wrong, their actions stemmed from a simple misunderstanding with another group of teenagers and was never intended to incite racial sentiment,” he told the crowd gathered at the surau.

“It is important to organise get-togethers like this from time to time.

“It’s an opportunity for all the residents to meet and mingle with each other,” he said.

So sad 2...

Come this for real? Another case...and now in Kedah.

Can tell/scold/caned students off but don;t ever mention 'get out of country or go back to china' kind of statements.

Am sure parents do not mind if their children are told off if they did something wrong...but the moment those kind of statements are uttered...that is something else.

SUNGAI PETANI: The Kedah Education Department is organising a meeting between parents and authorities of a school here following complaints that the principal had scolded non-Malay students for eating outside the school canteen.

Its director Shahidan Abd Rahman said he had spoken to the school principal involved after learning about the incident on Thursday.

“We will call a meeting soon on the matter, involving him, the parent-teacher association and parents of the students concerned,” he said here yesterday.

In the incident, the principal had allegedly scolded 10 Form Three students for eating outside the school canteen at about 7am before classes began.

The students were eating outside because the lights in the canteen were not switched on.

The principal had purportedly told them off for “not respecting” their Muslim friends and that they “should return to their country of origin if they did not show such respect”.

Merbok MCA division secretary Chow Kok Leong, who received complaints from the parents, claimed that the principal also made similar remarks during the school’s morning assembly the next day.

He said there were about 80 non-Malay students at the school, which has an enrolment of 780.

“Such remarks should not be made as Malaysia is a multi-racial country and a principal is someone who holds an esteemed position in the community.

“I acted as mediator for the families and have lodged a report with the Deputy Education Minister (Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong),” he added.

Thursday, August 19, 2010

So sad....

For those of you already outside the country...Good for you.

What would you do when the school principal say such things? (even though some say allege, but 17 police report make?)

Can you believe the state director said it was a 'misunderstanding'...if misunderstanding...17 police reports made? Hope they don;t sweep this under the rug.

If a principal can say such things and get away with it...what more to say the young students? Surely they will treat other race with disdain...look down on Chinese and Indians.

I think non malay's passport does not have a section called 'penumpang' in their passport..can you all please double check..thank you.

If a student is naughty and can't be controlled..called up the parents or worse case called up the police or caned them during assembly...but never ever say such things as 'go back to china or India or you kind don;t belong here'. I am sure there are naughty malay students too.

And for politicians...don;t little little bit use May 13 to scare people. People are now educated and know what is right and wrong...and the non malays will never in their right mind create chaos in a multi racial don;t use that date as the boggie man.

The Chinese should also refrain from demanding this and demanding that....always think of others too before demand things.

'Treat others the way we want to be treated'.

By Syed Jaymal Zahiid

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang wants the government to sack the racist secondary school principal who said that "Chinese students should go back to China" and likened Indian students to "dogs".

The principal of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra secondary school in Kulai, Johor, was reported to have made the remark during the school's Merdeka celebrations and Lim is calling for the severest of action against not just the principal, but other racists in the civil service.

"If Najib’s 1Malaysia is to have real meaning, Siti Inshah Mansor should not only be removed from the education service, there should be no place in civil service for other Siti Inshahs," he said.

"The severest disciplinary action must be taken against Siti Inshah who is clearly unfit to be in the education service of a multi-racial society like Malaysia, let alone a school principal going against the very precepts of the 1Malaysia enunciated by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak since April last year," added the Ipoh Timur MP.

Lim said the shocking part of this episode is that the racist remarks were made at a significant event such as the National Day. Ironically, said Lim, the theme of this year's National Day is '1Malaysia Transforms the Nation'.

"How meaningful is Najib’s 1Malaysia when school principals like Siti Inshah show utter contempt for Malaysia’s most important and richest asset – a model of ethnic, cultural and biological diversity?" said the DAP veteran.

Not the first case

Lim also said that the Siti Inshah incident was not the first case of racism in the country's civil service or mainstream politics.

In February this year, the special officer to the Prime Minister, Nasir Safar labeled Indians and Chinese in Malaysia as “pendatang (immigrants)”, and openly said at a government function that “Indians came to Malaysia as beggars and Chinese, especially women, came to sell their bodies”.

Before that, Bukit Bendera Umno chief Ahmad Ismail had referred to the Malaysian Chinese as "immigrants", "orang tumpang (squatters) and totally untrustworthy Malaysians.

The Ipoh Timur MP added that it is clear that the Ahmad Ismail-Nasir Safar-Siti Inshah episodes are not isolated incidents but "reflects a deeper national malady contributed no doubt by the communal brain-washing perpetrated by Biro Tata Negara over the decades".

"If Najib’s 1Malaysia policy is to have real meaning, Siti Inshah should not only be removed from the education service, there should be no place in the public service for other Siti Inshahs.

"This is a task the Cabinet tomorrow should put on top of its agenda. Are the Barisan Nasional Ministers equal to the challenge?" asked Lim.
Posted by barred at 8/17/2010 02:19:00 PM ‘racist’ principal, not cover up, parents demand

By Debra ChongAugust 19, 2010KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 19 —

Denying that it was a “misunderstanding”, parents want the Education Ministry to take stern disciplinary action against the Johor school head accused of spouting racist slurs, claiming that it was not the first incident.

One parent even alleged the ministry was trying to “cover up” the case at SMK Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra in Kulai.

“Parents are very unhappy that the authorities are citing misinformation and misunderstanding that the headmistress had made the remarks.

“It wasn’t a misunderstanding. Even the teachers have given their statement to the police. The teachers confirmed what has been reported by the students,” a parent told The Malaysian Insider, refuting Education director-general Tan Sri Alimuddin Mohd Dom’s response yesterday that the case was just a misunderstanding and had been resolved.

“If it was, then why did the state Education Department tell her to make an open apology to the non-Malay students and teachers?” he asked, and related that principal Siti Inshah Mansor had been loudly booed by the student population in the attempt.

“The government is trying to cover it up,” claimed the 46-year-old business consultant, who asked not to be named, fearing repercussions to his job.

The father of two said parents were mulling setting up a formal parent action group to pressure Putrajaya into action.

“Some disciplinary action must be taken. Even if not dismissal, at least demote her. If just transfer her out, it won’t solve the problem.

“She has done in before. In her previous school, she called Indians Nigerians,” he said, claiming Siti Inshah, who was formerly the principal of SMK Kelapa Sawit — another school in the same Kulai district — had been transferred out following similar complaints.

The police are currently investigating the case under section 504 of the Penal Code for provocation which carries a maximum imprisonment of two years, a fine or both.

A total of 17 complaints have been lodged with the police against the principal so far.

A copy of one report made last week and recently put up on the Malaysia-Today website listed several racist and derogatory remarks allegedly made by Siti Inshah, including likening Indian students wearing prayer threads on their person to dogs and ordering dissatisfied ethnic Chinese and Indian students to “return to China or India”.

Part of the lengthy police report lodged by a 16-year-old student alleged: “She gave the example of owning a Proton Saga with two passengers who are Munusamy and Chong. Munusamy and Chong were only passengers. They cannot claim any right to the car. This is the same as Malaysia in which the non-Malay students are passengers.”

Similar “racist” allegations have been reported made by senior civil servants, most notably by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s then-political aide Datuk Nasir Safar in January this year at a 1 Malaysia event, and signal a rise in racial tensions among Malaysia’s multicultural society.

Monday, May 10, 2010


A Husband takes his wife to play her first game of golf. Of course, the wife promptly hacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course.

The husband cringed, 'I warned you to be careful! Now we'll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us.'

So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door. A warm voice said, 'Come on in.'
When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done: glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the pieces of window glass.

A man reclining on the couch asked, 'Are you the people that broke my window?'

'Uh...yeah! , sir. We're sure sorry about that,' the husband replied.

'Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you.. You see, I'm a
genie, and I've been trapped in that bottle for a thousand years. Now that you've released me, I'm allowed to grant three wishes. I'll give you each one wish, but if you don't mind, I'll keep the last one for my self.'

Wow, that's great!' the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, 'I'd like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life.'

'No problem,' said the genie 'You've got it, it's the least I can do.. And I'll guarantee you a long, healthy life!'
'And now you, young lady, what do you want?' the genie asked.

'I'd like to own a gorgeous home in every country in the world complete with servants,' she said.

'Consider it done,' the genie said. 'And your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!'

'And now,' the couple asked in unison, 'what's your wish, genie?'

'Well, since I've been trapped in that bottle, and haven't been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife.'

The husband looked at his wife and said, 'Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?'

She mulled it over for a few moments and said, 'You know, you're right. Considering
our good fortune, I guess I wouldn't mind, but what about you, honey?'

You know I love you sweetheart,' said the husband. I'd do the same for you!'

So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other.
The genie was insatiable. After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, How old are you and your husband?'
'Why, we're both 35,' she responded breathlessly.
'No Kidding,' he said.
'Thirty-five years old and you both still believe in genies?'

My name is "Carlie"....

Hello...In December sis in law asked us to look after one of their puppies. She worry that the puppy would be bullied by the big dogs at home. Look after him for about a week. Her daughter name him 'Carly'. No idea why...:) When he came to us...only one month plus.

I never had pets wife loves Golden Retriver...she likes dogs. She very comfortable with them...whereas i am not that keen or good in handling them. But slowly got use to it.

He is going to be living indoors ....did not want him to roam around outside. He seems to be very cautious about not simply do big and small business. One section of the house we put newspapers on the floor..and he will go and do it there.

We also let him go outside to do his business....after doing it...he automatically head straight back into the house.

He came to use at night, next day...i took him to a vet place to have a bath. Get rid of ticks. My wife bath him on the 4th day. By the 5th day...i was thinking of adopting him. When sis in law came back, i asked her to get permission from her daughter. She explain to her that 1) she won;t be able to care for him because she will be furthering her studies, and by letting him stay with us....he will have a very happy life.

Since he is now ours, can;t change his name but change the spelling...change to Carlie. Everyone who saw him says he is cute. Rubbish bin full, he don;t disturb, don;t simply bite things (except my wife's house slippers). I only let him eat puppy food. No human food for him.

He loves pink colour....i think cause when he was young, sis in law daughter always wear pink. At first he hate red colour...will bark at anything he is fine. Loves to play with soft toys. He already have about 4. Loves to go for car rides. One time non stop for 2 hours.

Any idea on how to teach him to use leash? He hates it.

He is now 5 month plus...getting longer. Here are his young pictures.

"Oi please hurry with my hungry already"

"Me and my soft toys. The small one has been with me since the first night i lived here. I have a giraffe, tiger, teddy, rabbit and a new ball".

"Wonder where did he he getting food for me?"

"Oi...not ready lah....take again."

"Great stuffs...munch, munch, munch"

"What shall i do next?"

" Ah colour slippers (slippers lasted about 4 months until he chews it all up) soft and delicious...wonder why it was thrown away. I love it"

"Wonder why so many people outside and i cannot meet them. What is CNY? I hope they go soon so i can go out. In the mean time i think i take a nap...heard rumours that these people don;t go home early. "

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'it's open!' His reply: 'I know. I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS

We had to have the garage door repaired.
The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, 'NO, it's not.' Four is larger than two.'

We haven't used Sears repair since.


My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.
She said, 'you gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back. She sighed and went to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'

From Kingman , KS

My daughter went to a local Taco Bell
and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind
the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry,
but they only had iceburg lettuce.
-- From Kansas City

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, 'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?' To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?' He smiled knowingly and nodded,
'That's why we ask.'

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'

She was a probation officer inWichita , KS
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,' our manager commented cheerfully, 'This is fun. We should do this more often.' Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office, no less.

How would you pronounce this child's name?


Leah?? NO
Lee - A?? NOPE
Lay - a?? NO
Lei?? Guess Again.
This child attends a school in Kansas City, Mo. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
It's pronounced "Ledasha", When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don't be silent."

SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.
If dey axe you why, tell dem de dash don't be silent.

Fw: The correct answers !!

Something to share....not sure if i have posted this joke...:) You have a great week ahead now...cheers.

Subject: What were you thinking ?The correct answers

A first-grade teacher, Ms Anna (Age 22 ) was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked the boy, 'what is your problem?' The boy answered, 'I'm too smart for the first-grade.

My sister is in the third-grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the third-grade too!'

Ms Anna had enough. She took the boy to the principal's office. While the boy waited at the reception of the office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms Anna he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions. He was to go back to the first-grade and behave.

The boy was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
Principal: 'What is 3 x 3?'
Boy: '9'.
Principal: 'What is 6 x 6?'
Boy: '36'.

So it went with every question, the principal thought a
third-grade should know.The principal looks at Ms Anna
and tells her, 'I think this Boy can go to the third-grade.'

Ms Anna says to the principal, 'I have some of my own questions,
can I ask him?' The principal and Boy both agreed
Ms Anna asks, 'Why does a cow have four of that I have only two?
Boy: after a moment 'Legs.'

Ms Anna: 'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?'
Boy: 'Pockets.'

Ms Anna: 'What starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and
contains thin whitish liquid'?
Boy: 'Coconut'

Ms Anna: 'What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky'?

The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer, the boy was taking charge.
Boy: 'Bubblegum'

Ms Anna: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs'?

The principal's eyes open really wide again and before he could stop the answer..

Boy: 'Shake hands'

Ms Anna: 'Now, I will ask some who am I sort of questions, ok?'
Boy: 'Yep.'
Ms Anna: 'You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do.'
Boy: 'A tent'

Ms Anna: A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you're bored. The best man always has me first.

The Principal was looking restless and a bit tense He took one large Vodka peg.
Boy: 'Wedding Ring'

Ms Anna: I come in many sizes. When I'm not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good.
Boy: Nose

Ms Anna: I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver.

Boy: Arrow

Ms Anna: What word starts with a 'F' and ends in 'K' that means lot of heat and excitement?
Boy: Fire truck

Ms Anna: What word starts with a 'F' and ends in 'K' & if you don't get it you have to use your hand.
Boy: Fork

Ms Anna: What is it that all men have one of. It's longer on some men than on others, the pope does not use his, and a man gives it to his wife after they are married?
Boy: Surname

Ms Anna: What part of the man has no bones but has muscles, lots of veins and loves pumping?
Boy: 'Heart'

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and said to the teacher 'Send this boy to Stanford University, I myself got all the answers wrong'.
