Nazri said people with cow dung in their brains were interpreting Malay Supremacy wrongly. He explained that Malay Supremacy did not mean that Malays were more superior than other races and that the phrase was COINED to protect the sovereignty of the Malay Rulers.

PKR delegates can back Anwar amid growing criticism but the big question people are asking among themselves, will it win any seats for the coming GE13. The delegates are too small a number to even secure a win for PKR. The many tale signs are showing that PKR will lose all the seats they have won so far and can even drag DAP and PAS along too if the latter parties are not careful.
The many people I met recently told me that they will vote for DAP and PAS but if PKR put their candidates in their areas, they will either not come out to vote or spoil the votes. They are not going to give their vote to BN or UMNO’s or PKR’s candidates full stop.
The third force or Zaid intent party should place their candidates in PKR seats only to contest against BN or UMNO in a three corner fight. Then the people will make sure BN or UMNO will continue to lose more seats.
It would in the best interest to all Malaysiams to save the country then give Anwar face.

The arrogance of Abu Kassim, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission boss can be noted with grieve when he has the cheek to say the test for corruption is simple. In a corrupt/corruptible nation half the people in the room would admit to having been asked to pay bribe or have paid bribe at the bloggers dialogue in Legend.
For your information Abu Kassim dare not investigate Tun Daim whom I have reported direct to him nor does he dare to answer my letters. If the MACC boss is a coward how do you expect his men to do any work.
Everyday I dread leaving my house because the minute I step outside my compound I see with my own eyes government officers asking for money from the road side stalls, kedai mamak, roundabouts and many other lanes.
I would like to challenge Abu Kassim and his lazy and coward officers from Anti-Corruption to accept my service for free for a week to catch at least 30 civil servants per day those asking and taking bribes in Wilayah Persekutuan alone. This offer has unlimited deadline so there is no excuse not to accept.
Take a step further Abu Kassim and have dialogues with Sri Cempaka and Sri KL primary school children instead. There the children are innocent and naive and are more than willing to raise their hands when you ask whether their parents cheat, steal and take bribes.
APs cannot be done away with immediately
Reports by LEE YUK PENG, TEH ENG HOCK and YUEN MEIKENG
THE abolition of Approved Permits (AP) to import vehicles cannot be done immediately as it will cause hundreds of bumiputra entrepreneurs to go bankrupt, International Trade and Industries Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said.
He said the open APs to import cars would be scrapped by 2015.
“The Government knows that many issues had cropped up. It has been decided that by the end of 2015, the practice will be stopped,” he said in debating the 2011 Budget on behalf of his ministry.
Mustapa explained that there was a need for a period of transition for the abolition of the APs by 2015 to allow automotive businessmen to adjust to the changes and settle their bank loans.
“If we stop it immediately, it will not be fair. The businessmen have loans to settle and buildings and families to take care of,” he added.
My dear Mustapa, it is obvious you are not thinking with the brain Allah has given you. The many APs elite clans are all multi-millionaires and some of them are even billionaires. Most of them are second and third generation receivers. They have many houses all fully paid in cash, they are given free lands when they donate and help the government in each and every erections not elections. All contracts and projects are given to them on the lap, whether they have the know-how or not. They do not pay full taxes neither are they forced to pay up the loans which are given to them without collateral and are charge at the lowest rate of just 2% and even can do money laundering with the help of the Bank Negara and the government.
So come 2015, people like you will come up with many more excuses to extend their pocket money because this is the right given to them by the UMNO government for as long as UMNO rule this country.

Former sergeant N. Tharmendran was taken away by 8 Air Force personnel who claimed he is a 'DESERTER'.
N. Tharmendran had claimed he was framed and had pleaded not guilty in court for stealing and selling 2 F5 fighter jet engines worth RM100 million. He was taken away after the hearing in court this evening.
From past history it is an open secret that if you are taken away by MACC, Police or Air Force or Army you are forced to confess whether you did it or not or be ready to be killed.
So like Kugan, Teoh Beng Hock and Altantuya, I strongly believe N. Tharmendran would be dead within 24 hours from self-strangulation which the DPP and even our so-called Forensic Experts are ready to testify such nonsense can be done to kill oneself.

Najib said “In Malaysia, we are never short of rumours. Talks of cabinet changes are rumours, elections are also rumours, and they are just rumours."
But rumours in Malaysia are seldom wrong.
Take the case of Altantuya’s death. If Altantuya was not taken to see Rosmah at their home in Jalan Duta the night before her death and was brazen enough to watch how the former was killed then there is no rumour.
If Tajuddin and Halim were not acting on behalf of Mahathir and Daim, then there is no rumour.
If Hishamuddin was not the one who killed Teoh Beng Hock, then there is no rumour.
If JJ was not arrogance and proud that he was the one who arranged the meeting and fine tune the deal between Najib and Anwar, then there is no rumour.
If Anwar’s house in Washington is invisible then there is no rumour.
If Azmin Ali is not Mahathir’s nephew and was given RM22 million, then there is no rumour.
If Employees Provident Fund and Kumpulan Wang Persaraan acquiring the office building in London for RM785.07 million, which in reality belong to UMNO but was put under trust and is now being sold back to us. And if the money has not been channeled into Anwar’s trust account in Washington and into the UMNO election bank which target at RM2 billion for the GE13th, then there is no rumour.
If Azmin Ali is not confident of being Menteri Besar of Selangor whether PKR or UMNO win in the GE13, then there is no cheating and rumour.
If Karpal Singh is given advance notice instead of wasting his energy and time in Sodomy 2, then there is no shouting match in court.
If DAP, PAS, MIC, MCA and the friendly coalitions are still dummies then there is rumour of SUICIDE.
Speculation of a ‘deal’
By Terence Netto
Meanwhile, Zaid began letting on he had heard a story, attributed to former finance minister Daim Zainuddin, that Anwar had purchased a house in Washington DC. Zaid had run into Nasharuddin Mat Isa, the PAS deputy president, in Dubai while on transit to London. The Backok MP asked if Zaid he had heard Anwar had bought a house in Washington. Zaid said he heard the story from Daim.
Nasharuddin, leader of the faction in his party, said to be interested in talking to UMNO and a rival of Husam Musa, reputedly a proxy of Anwar’s in PAS, was transiting in Dubai to or from Tanzania for a parliamentary conference.
Into the hothouse of speculation and puzzlement over Anwar’s surreptitious meetings with Abdullah and then Najib, the rumoured purchase of a house in Washington DC only served to stoke speculation that a ‘deal’ was being cut in which reprieve for Najib from the drip-drip of corrosive revelations by swashbuckling blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin over the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case would be exchanged for dropping of the sodomy charge, accompanied by exile for Anwar.
Within PKR, the faction maddened with frustration over Anwar’s cat-and-mouse game over internal party reform, gave their own twist to this stream of fevered speculation.
They said Anwar was kaput, finito, that he was angling for a way out of the sodomy charge, and that the faster he repaired to his Washington residence the better for PKR.

PKR is 'not for us any more'
Ahmad A Talib
LEHA is way down in the Parti Keadilan Rakyat food chain. For many years, this young mother held on to her hope that the party would form the next government. Jaafar, her husband, had harboured the same hope, too.
The couple have a small flat at Kondo Rakyat in Kg Kerinchi, Lembah Pantai. During the recent Hari Raya Aidilfitri and last week's Hari Raya Aidiladha, the couple sold lemang to supplement their income.
They make excellent lemang. At RM8 per stick, it's a good buy. But events in the PKR in past few months have made Leha and Jaafar frustrated, angry, disappointed and disillusioned.
Leha has made enquiries about joining Umno and is anxious to sign up as soon as possible.
While Leha and Jaafar are at the lower end of the PKR hierarchy, top leader Datuk Zaid Ibrahim is just as frustrated. He couldn't take any more of the squabbles within the party and announced his departure on Friday.
Lawyer Zaid is not likely to join any other party, having burned his bridges with Umno when he jumped onto the PKR bandwagon. He harbours a different ambition -- that of forming his own political party.
Leha and Jaafar are not following Zaid in his new venture. Zaid, as far as the couple are concerned, is but one of the many reasons for the internal squabbles in the party. The PKR crisis shows no sign of easing off, which leaves the likes of Leha and Jaafar seething.
Leha said: "The PKR leaders are ungrateful. In the last general election, I worked liked a dog to help Nurul Izzah, Anwar's daughter, beat then incumbent member of parliament Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil in Lembah Pantai.
"Nurul would call me often. If no calls, there were always SMSes. As a grassroots leader, I have my own circle of friends. With little sleep but plenty of sweat, we helped sent Nurul Izzah to Parliament.
"Today, I hardly get any call from her. No SMS, too."
For the record, Nurul Izzah garnered 21,728 votes compared with 18,883 for Shahrizat. The likes of Leha and Jaafar helped gave Nurul Izzah the 2,895-vote majority.
Leha has some unsavoury words about her MP, but I chose not to share them with everyone.
Her husband was a bit more dramatic. At a press conference last week, Jaafar brought along a pair of tombstones to show everyone that they were meant for PKR's grave when the time came. I later found out that the tombstones were actually meant as replacement tombstones for his late sister-in-law, who died many years ago.
Asked why he brought the tombstones, Jaafar said: "Saya benci PKR. Saya dah tak tahan lagi. Cakap tak serupa bikin. Penuh dengan janji-janji manis tetapi kosong. Parti ini tiada prinsip, tiada maruah." (I hate PKR. I can't stand it any more. No action, only talk. They make empty promises. They have no principles, no dignity.)
Zaid, too, have had enough of the PKR squabbles. Political observers had concluded much earlier that Zaid would leave the party sooner or later for the simple reason that he won't fit into the PKR framework.
Zaid's entry into PKR was met with a massive drum roll and warm greetings. Many had high hopes that Zaid's entry would strengthen the party. But as Leha, Jaafar and senior party leaders later found out, this was not to be.
Zaid was seen as a troublemaker, of trying to subvert and challenge the leadership of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Battle lines were drawn and it was only a matter of time before matters came to a boil.
Zaid didn't do all that well in PKR, too, having lost to Barisan Nasional's P. Kamalanathan in the Hulu Selangor parliamentary by-election earlier this year.
Zaid was beaten by the friendly Kamalanathan with a majority of 1,725 votes. If PKR had hoped that Zaid would strengthen the party, this defeat was certainly not the way to go. Zaid's critics said this was the start of Zaid's problems in the party.
Zaid's departure from PKR may not be the last, at least from the top-end of the hierarchy. Others may follow. At the lower-end of the scale, leaders like Leha are already making their way to join Umno. This is really a testing time for members who are still in the party.
PKR is not the only party that uses people that way. UMNO, MIC, MCA, Gerakan, PAS, DAP and many others including NGOs are sama, sama.
Let’s be honest Malaysians are by nature demanding, selfish and greedy, right or not? Ask yourself and be honest and truthful.
When Daim was the Finance Minister I had strangers and friends coming to my house asking for projects, education funds and some wanting to work in his companies. One Japanese even send me a gift worth RM20,000 which I decline to accept and told him to give it to Mahani or Ida. Even an old friend whom I had not seen for several years begged me to talk to Daim for a job using our friendship as an excuse. For a couple of months my family was invited to lunches and dinners at five stars hotels and restaurants. I rejected every single request and even ask some of them why I should help them when I myself had not ask for a single project from Daim. Many left frustrated and angry.
Today these people would pretend not to know me because they have managed to secure funds for education, projects and are even working for Daim through the help of Mahani, Naim and Josephine.
When Mahani was running Syarikat Maluri, for a short period of time, many staff walked out because the Crazy Woman or Ritchie bitch which was Mahani’s nickname, was suspicious that they were all sleeping with Daim. Also Ritchie bitch’s mouth has nothing nice or sweet when it comes to character assassination, which the ex-staff are more than happy to vouch. When one by one started to leave, Daim got angry and told Ritchie bitch to get some of them back. So Ritchie bitch had no choice but to go begging for their return. Ritchie bitch was then seen everywhere in Taman Maluri crying and begging them on the road sides, going to their homes and even called them many times a day. Later when it was confirmed that none of them were willing to return Ritchie bitch again bad mouth them. Ritchie bitch last victim was none other than Camelia who used to be with Wira.
For every past by-election certain leaders from PKR would call up my friends to do this or that. At times, calls and SMS would come in every two minutes and your calls to them would be answered. When election is over, there is absolutely big silent from these leaders. Even calls and messages to their cell phones are never answered. There is no thank you or dinner to show their appreciation for the work done. Then if you just happen to meet them in a function they would be reluctant to shake your hands. When corner why they behave like that, they would say busy and not to worry when the time comes they will not be forgotten. This kind of excuses I have heard many times over the years from UMNO, MCA, DAP, PAS and PKR leaders. They are all the same. When they need you, you are their best friend but the minute there is no need for your service you are a beggar. The people who left UMNO and PKR are no better too.

PKR claimed it has 400,000 members. I don’t see the number nor have hear such figures from the people who are supposed to be members or working for PKR.
Even from last year’s Hari Raya gatherings and many other seminars I have mentioned that there was lack of supporters and Anwar was not blind nor deaf to my many remarks.
PKR is definitely mismanaged by the very people who are supposed to be close to Anwar. Azmin Ali is not someone you can trust to build up PKR unless he is given the President post. One must understand that Azmin Ali is Mahathir’s nephew. Mahathir had been supporting Azmin Ali and his family financially since he became the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Azmin Ali was already a millionaire in 1984 when he was still studying. Azmin can be considered a Trojan chosen by Mahathir to be close to Anwar. Even today Azmin still have to report to Mahathir however small an issue concerning PKR. That is how Mahathir stay ahead of the game. To control Najib, Mahathir will use Azmin soon, then we can see how a by gone leader uses his steering wheel to the fullest.
Back to the 400,000 so called members. On many occasions in late 2009 and this year I was presence when certain leaders from Selangor were looking for people who had signed up as members in 1999 and 2004. They have lists of names but these so-called members could not be found at the addresses given nor could they be contacted. For example if the list has 25 names only 2 could be contacted, the rest was not traceable. Then for seminars or meetings I was contacted to tag along and if possible bring a couple of friends to show support. No need to be members. Every occasion I decline simply because certain leaders in PKR are no better than my contacts in UMNO. Since these creatures are from the same basket, no need to be buddy with them. Even for the by-elections I refused to talk to these so-called leaders when we were sharing the same house.
Had PKR make an effort to register their members and given them a card then, I believe the number 400,000 is realistic today. Many members have complain about the sloppy work inside PKR headquarter till most of them have given up hope of becoming a member or wanting to help the party. Instead today they are freedom fighters waiting for the right person to lead them again.
I truly believe that if the right person can be found and is willing to sacrifice his life to lead the alliance to contest against UMNO (BN) and forget about PKR, this country can be save. Otherwise we are doom. It is not because UMNO has changed which is impossible given that Rosmah is a glutton for power. But people are fed-up of Anwar and Azmin Ali. PKR should not be about Anwar alone but a party that is strong in leadership, humble, willing to listen and work for the country.

The engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton has sparked a major shopping frenzy in just 48 hours.
Sapphire and diamond engagement ring rose 1,000% sales.
Engagement Dress like the one Kate used 27%.
Memorabilia sales rose 300%.
These sales are on e-bay itself.
Our Tuns, Tan Sri, Datuk are already hot on the net and phones to make booking for accommodation for the wedding due next year.
As for Rosmah and Mahani Daim, they too have already given instruction to lobby for an invitation even though the British Royal Palace had given notice that not all Commonwealth countries would be invited. So will money buy them an invitation to the Grand Wedding? British are unlike Americans when it comes to "money work magic".

Malaysia trails Singapore in attracting brains
By Yow Hong Chieh
November 11, 2010
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 — Singapore has trumped Malaysia in the brain gain stakes, according to a recent Gallup poll which saw the island-state beat some 150 countries to come out as the most favoured destination in the world for educated migrants.
Bucking the trend in developed Asia, Singapore stands to more than triple its population from brain gain alone if it opens its borders to all educated migrants who wish to reside there.
The republic easily outshone Southeast Asian neighbours Malaysia, which is nearly 30 times less attractive to educated migrants, and Thailand, which those same migrants only find marginally attractive.
Singapore also topped the survey as the number one destination for young migrants, and could potentially boost its population by more than five times if this category of migrants were allowed in.
Gallup researchers interviewed nearly 350,000 adults, aged 15 and older, in 148 countries between 2007 and early this year to calculate each country’s Potential Net Brain Gain Index and Potential Net Youth Migration Index.
Both scores represent the estimated number of adults who wish to permanently leave a country subtracted from the estimated number who wish to immigrate there, as a proportion of the total adult population.
Educated adults were defined as those with four or more years of education after high school or the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree or higher, while young adults were defined as those in the 15- to 29-year-old bracket.
Within the 10-member Asean region, Singapore thrashed rivals with a potential brain gain score of 317 per cent compared to Malaysia’s 11 per cent and Thailand (3 per cent) and Laos (-11 per cent). The Philippines stood to lose the most through brain drain, with just over a third of its educated population wanting to leave (-36 per cent).
There were no brain gain numbers for Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia, while Myanmar and Brunei were not included in the survey.
Singapore also stood to gain the greatest population increase from potential youth migrants with a score of 537 per cent, followed by Malaysia (34 per cent), Thailand (-4 per cent), Indonesia (-7 per cent), Laos (-15 per cent), the Philippines (-28 per cent) and Cambodia (-39 per cent).
Other developed Asian countries like Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan posted negative brain gain scores, although Japan remained attractive to young migrants with a potential youth migration of 23 per cent.
Asian powerhouses China and India, too, both looked to lose 18 per cent of their more than one billion population each through brain drain, with China standing to lose slightly more of its youth at -10 per cent compared to India’s -9 per cent.
The poll found that developed regions were more likely to attract young rather than educated migrants, with only developed Asia seeing any significant brain drain.
“The United States and Canada — two of the top desired destination countries in the world for potential migrants — are poised to experience higher youth gains than education gains,” the organisation said.
Canada outshone its southern neighbour, posting an impressive potential net brain gain score of 144 per cent compared to 12 per cent for the US. However, both countries appeared to be much more attractive to the young, with Canada racking up a 301 per cent in the youth migration score and the US, 152 per cent.
Europe on the whole registered 121 per cent potential net youth migration and 25 per cent net brain gain, with the UK leading the youth gain pack (235 per cent), followed by Sweden (181 per cent), France (168 per cent) and Ireland (128 per cent).
Within the region, however, Spain was the most attractive to educated migrants (106 per cent), then Denmark (65 per cent) , Sweden (64 per cent) and Austria (61 per cent). The UK only managed to score 13 per cent in this category.
Advanced economies like Australia would similarly see more youth gains (276 per cent) than education gains (187 per cent). New Zealand posted comparable numbers of 235 per cent potential net youth migration to 178 per cent potential net brain gain.
Coming in dead last for the competition for brains was the Dominican Republic, with almost 42 per cent of the population saying it will leave if it could, closely followed by Nicaragua (-41 per cent), Moldova (-39 per cent) and Iran (-36 per cent).
There have been talks about bringing back our educated brains home. But the Government is not doing any concrete work beside forming committee and giving them big spending money to jolly round the world.
The first and major task should be to get rid of the uneducated illegal and legal migrants which stand at 2.3 million at the latest count. A country cannot give benefit and privileges to both uneducated and educated migrants. To do so is simply impossible and has never been done in any country. The uneducated migrants have long brought in uncivilized and culture that have resulted in us losing our jobs, insecurity in living and unhygienic surrounding and manner of respect. The easy access to owning M-kad due to double standard, greed and selfishness of the authorities is another factor.
Mahathir had admitted in the past that by giving easy access of M-kad to uneducated Indonesian is a way out for Malaysia to dilute the population of the Chinese, Indians and others so that UMNO can and will continue to rule and control this country. So too to members of UMNO who are not willing to relinquish their heavenly seats to the young and educated Malaysians. So on the one hand Najib is giving billions to bring the brains back but the heavenly kings are not willing to let go and insists on having the uneducated migrants, the result is easy to predict as another charade comes and goes, our money down the drain. Our best brain remain in foreign country.
Baggage of the past
THE STAR SAYS...
COME Jan 1, Penang will create a precedent of sorts with a total ban on the use of plastic bags at all hypermarkets, supermarkets, departmental stores, pharmacies, fast-food restaurants, nasi kandar restaurants and convenience stores (including those at petrol stations).
Operators of mini-markets and sole proprietorships will also be asked to enforce the ruling but for three days a week – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The ruling does not mean that plastic bags will totally disappear from the state as many outlets, including the bustling hawker community that is synonymous with Penang, have been spared, for now at least.
Despite rumblings from various quarters – including women who wonder how they will discard their used sanitary pads – we should view the state’s initiative as part of the growing movement towards a greener future for all.
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is standing firm as he believes “the people should look on the positive side of the move, which stood to benefit the future generation in the long run.”
To think of the future generation is both necessary and noble, as we have seen how long-term plans are scuttled by short-term expediency, especially of the political nature.
In this context, the Penang Government should be given credit where it is due.
The bigger picture, however, extends beyond the banning of plastic bags.
We must, first of all, be clear of how such a ruling can be effectively implemented. Malaysians, after all, are pretty good at finding loopholes in any regulation.
The state used a staggered approach to implement the policy, from one day to three days to every day. So, there is no excuse for people finding difficulty in adjusting.
In fact, allowing the smaller outlets the three-day option is counter-productive as shoppers will only use their green bag on “No Plastic Day” and continue to use plastic bags on “normal” shopping days.
For those who feel plastic bags are needed to be reused as garbage bags, the long-term aim must be to strive for zero waste. We must recycle all we can and compost the organics so that there will be little waste left.
The movement to ban the use of plastic bags is not new. Many countries, including emerging giants like China and India, are heading in the same direction.
Politicians and corporations all around the world ponder over banning or taxing plastic bags but there is no clear solution in sight.
Ireland is often cited as a good example. In 2002, it imposed a hefty surcharge that spurred the public there to spurn plastic bags almost completely in favour of reusable cloth bags. But the 90% reduction in plastic-bag use should be viewed against the fact that there was a 400% increase in the local production of plastic garbage bags.
Four years later, most consumers had switched back to using plastic shopping bags, despite the tax, because they found it more convenient to do so.
It is clear that the ban on the use of plastic bags will have limited impact on the overall green agenda if the bigger issues are not addressed.
We need to embrace the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) model and to address waste-management issues through a combination of public education, enforcement of the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act 2007, and cleaning programmes by local authorities.
As individuals, we also need to minimise our own carbon footprint. If we go to a hypermarket, we must shop wisely and not go on a buying spree simply because of the discounts. We must audit what we buy, whether they come in plastic bags or not.
The green agenda can only be embraced by creative and comprehensive planning backed by strong political will, education and a carrot-and-stick approach.
It is funny when a small inconvenience can cause a roar. Some people in Penang are complaining about how they will discard their used sanitary pads and rubbish come 1st January 2011.
I was brought up in a small community of 13 families nearby the old Star Cinema opposite the Pudu Market. There was not a single toilet or latrine in any of these wooden houses. To empty our bowel we had to go down hill about three minutes away, where four latrines were located. Using these latrines is no fun as we had to be on the look out for peeping toms who did not mind the smell for an eye view. Then there was also no such thing as pipe water. To do our washing and bathing we had to go further down another three minutes to a man made pond. For cooking purpose we purchase water from a coffee shop direct opposite of Pudu Market and when we are desperately in need of a good clean bath, it was also from there. Each purchase cost us 10 cents. For cooking we used chopped woods and kerosene and for lighting we relied on the old kerosene or carbide lamps. We also did not have the luxury of having rubbish collectors to collect our rubbish. So what did we do, we found alternatives to live our lives.
After 7pm no-one from our little village dares to venture down to the latrines. Emergency we had to use layer and layer of newspaper sometimes if lucky the top layer would be a banana leaf to do our business. Then we bungkus it and leave it outside the kitchen door. For a light job we have the old faithful piss pot. Come daylight small kids like me are given a couple of cents for each packet to thrown into the latrine. Piss pots are empty into a common hole. Household rubbishs are packed the same like our business and are then taken to Pudu market to dispose off. Plastic bags were unknown then.
For shopping we use square cloth to tie up our goods if we had forgotten to bring along our rattan baskets.
So I hope that with Global warning sounding round the world, the people of Penang would use some common sense to save a piece of earth for our children and also to set an example to our Federal Government that if there is a will nothing is impossible.

A SAFARI wildlife reserve in the US has unveiled the world's biggest hybrid cat - half lion, half tiger - called the Liger.
Four-week-old Aries was presented to the world along with eight-year-old big brother, Hercules, at the Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife reserve in South Carolina.
A cross between a male lion and a female tigress, the two posed for pictures with Aries resting on his sibling’s huge shoulders.
Aries is expected to pile on 0.45kg per day and will be 165kg by his first birthday. But he has a long way to go to catch up with Hercules – who stands almost 183cm tall and weighs more than 406kg.
The liger project has been created by The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.).
MICHAEL Jackson's children have told talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey they did not mind wearing blankets on their heads.
In their first ever sit-down interview, Michael Jackson's three children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket, said on The Oprah Winfrey Show that their father tried to keep his fame a secret from them, The NY Post reported.
"He tried to raise us without knowing who he was, but that didn't go so well," blue-eyed Paris told Winfrey, as she and her brothers recalled Coca-Cola and candy-fuelled early morning walks on the beach in Bahrain and late nights on the roof of their Las Vegas home to bask in the glittering lights of the strip.
The children also said they appreciated how their dad would make them wear veils over their heads when they went out in public - a familiar but strange sight that appeared in newspapers around the world for years.
"Did you know at the time why you were putting on the mask?" Winfrey asked.
"Yeah," said Prince, wearing a tie-dyed purple shirt and a large pendant around his neck. "He did it because then nobody would really recognise us."
"It wasn't always comfortable, but I appreciated it," Paris said.
Prince said he wants to produce and direct movies some day.
Paris said she wants to be an actress.
The interview was taped several weeks ago in the backyard of grandmother Katherine Jackson's home in Los Angeles, where the children live with her and four of their cousins, the children of Randy and Jermaine Jackson.
Both Katherine and Jackson's father Joe were also interviewed.
Michael Jackson spent years claiming Joe beat him and whipped him with a strap as a child - charges Joe did not deny and even said he would do again if he could.
"I'm glad he was raised in such a way," Joe Jackson said. "He could have been like some of the other kids from Gary (Jackson's hometown), either dead or doing a lot of drugs or in jail or something."
It is normal for Malaysian Muslim fuck up leaders to talk this way. Everyday we have videos of them and AG, Police and MACC are just taking it as a joke and not serious in their work. Why don't they just close up their departments and jolly with Yen Yen round the world.

Come January 2011 Penangites will not be given plastic bags when they go shopping. But I am certain some traders will continue giving out of habits to the demand of some shoppers. No matter what, it is good Penang is the first state to do their bit for the environment and future.
For the past twenty-six years I have been doing my part in saving the environment in small ways like saving all recycle materials and sending them to two centers, food waste are recycle back to my garden which have been producing compost fruits, vegetables and beautiful range of flowers and herbs. My rubbish in the bin is less than 2 kg per week which I still consider way too much for any household to throw away but there are many materials that cannot be recycled and I do not know what to do with them. Hopefully in the future we can have everything environmental friendly and there is no more rubbish to be thrown away but everything recycle back into our house compound.
It will be good if Penang can also recycle their water like Singapore in the near future.

Symbiosis is the relationship of two different species to each other where each provides something the other cannot provide for itself. It is derived from the Greek, Sym for with and Biosis for living. Two unlike species co-exist and one provides benefits for the other and visa versa. Both may be enhanced by the relationship, depending on the type of symbiosis involved.
We have three parties namely PAS, DAP and PKR who must strive to work together and become as one no matter what happens. To do that we must first save, trust and be humble and sacrifice the desire to be superior to friends and comrades.
It is time for Anwar to listen to the hearts of the people and have faith in thyself to do the right thing. A miracle surgery must be perform now before it is too late. The sound and beat from the heart is not wrong but the lack of listening destroy oneself.
Najib and Rosmah must be very proud and happy that the Bomoh is indeed a great man. BN won in the Batu Sapi and Galas election. So what are the chances of blood and death in the hands of Najib next year as fore told by the great man.
A double win today but what happens when the keris is used against the very people who gave them cause to celebrate. Will MCA, MIC and the many dogs continue their support if that keris is pointed between their eyes.

Every month my son purchase bags of flour, so thanks to the Government for rising the fuel price by 5 sen, the purchase price today is now RM61 per bag. August price was RM50.50 per bag, then September it was RM54.00 per bag and now up another RM7.00. Is this high income and transformation that Najib is talking and promoting?
My noodle for lunch went up by 50 sen today. This is how Najib operate, killing us softly.
So if all the folks continue to let fate takes its course this country is definitely going bankrupt not only with money but people who had enough and are packing their bags. Jala is partly to be blame too.
Funny though prices of food are soaring, Warisan Merdeka is 100 storey high but Najib's little brother is down all the time much to his embarrassment.
The news that Najib under the chicken pox (small dicky pox) weather is bull shit. Accordingly Rosmah's reliable bomoh who was here with the Indian Premier, had advise that Najib should avoid confrontation with the rakyat over the rise of RON 97 fuel that went up 5 sen today, Warisan Merdeka, Batu Sapi and Galas Election and most important the revelation of the audit report and soon the rise in Sugar, Cooking oil and Rice prices.
Najib should only come out in hiding after 9th November 2010 and can announce the General Election date between 11th November till 20th November 2010. Otherwise Najib has only two days next year to do that. That is to secure a win for BN and himself. After those dates everything he does will go down the drain.
The bomoh also said that Najib will have blood and death in both hands for next year.
Couple of weeks now I have been hearing about the whore's network and her posh office in Putrajaya. Friends tell me that the whore runs Putrajaya with a leash so tight round Nijab's neck that he can particularly choke on it. Every single projects, Najib's schedule, matters concerning government matters, his suits, meals even his visit to the loo must be minuted and approved by the whore.
This has been going since Najib became the Prime Minister. But things has been getting out of hands since Lee Kuan Yew's visit. Now everything goes straight to the whore's office and home to get her approval before Najib can even have it on his desk and he cannot see or meet anyone without her okay. Couple of times he was forced to meet some delegates from other states and the whore just walked in and told them to leave. These are life members of UMNO and Najib just kept quiet. No offer of apology was given.
So all those Malays and Rulers who had and are hammering that only a man can run this country are just hypocrite and cowards. Putrajaya is definitely run by a woman who not only killed once but more than twice.
Maybe the Rulers can direct their speeches to the direction of Putrajaya and the whore instead.
Interesting enough this whore still does her midnight rounds to see her little toy. This one is an illegal immigrate from our neighbourhood, so says the people in Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor.
