He must really be feeling the heat from all the attention being tgiven to his RM24m/RM3.5m istana.
in Shah Alam, blurted out what must be the worst possible justification for his grandiose abode.
“I am a former mentri besar, you don’t expect me to stay in a pondok”, he is reported to have said.
This ex-MB has forced upon himself this imperative comparison.
Tok Guru Nik Aziz is still the serving MB of Kelantan, since 1990.
Yes, he still lives in this ‘pondok’.
Want a better view?

They can acquire the land but it comes with a price. There are many options to be looked at, swapping land, partial compensation plus a smaller piece of land etc. The Pakatan government needs to check for any wrongdoings during the land transfer. If illegal, they can use this to make things right which is the best option.
The Hindraf leader who uses his kid to send memos can't be trusted. He and his brother are moving towards a political party and the only way they can make themselves popular is by playing the race card. They are no different than BN parties and they seem to whack the Pakatan government just to be in the limelight.
As for Guan Eng, please check the facts before you speak. Do not say leasehold then residents show proof it is not. Get your facts right. Go and meet the residents as it is ok to see them and show empathy
This is is a big issue Guan Eng. The handling of this issue by Guan Eng and his people has been bad.
Pakatan needs to find a solution fast. The developer must remember that the government can make life difficult during the construction if the government wants to. So a win win solution needs to be found. Then go after the BN folks who made the approval.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, in an announcement today, said the two subjects will be taught in Bahasa Melayu in national schools and Tamil and Chinese for vernacular schools.
The Education Minister added that the changes would not affect Form Six and matriculation programmes.
"The government made the decision after studying closely research on PPSMI that shows that PPSMI could not be implemented as expected," Muhyiddin told a special press conference here.
He said the decision was fair and made carefully after witnessing the implementation in the first six years after its introduction.
He also denied that the decision to scrap the policy was politically motivated.
"This decision is not political, we made the decision not for political mileage. What is Manek Urai compared to the future of our children," said Muhyiddin.
He however denied that the PPSMI policy had failed.
"I wouldn't say it was a complete failure, but it did not achieve what it was supposed to achieve," he said.
Introduced in 2003, the policy has been heavily criticised by Chinese educationists and Malay-language activists, but a recent survey by the independent Merdeka Center showed that 58 per cent of 1,060 voters interviewed supported the policy.
Muhyiddin had admitted in Parliament last month that students had not shown significant improvement in the two subjects over the past six years.
But he said today the intention of the policy, which is to improve English language proficiency among Malaysian students, will continue to be upheld.
The measures to be introduced include recruiting some 14,000 new English language teachers. Currently there are more than 30,000 English teachers nationwide.
Muhyiddin also said the lesson duration for English language would also be doubled for lower primary students to 120 minutes a week, while for upper primary it would be increased from 90 minutes to 120 minutes a week.
For secondary students, the duration will be increased from 200 minutes to 280 minutes a week.
This is how great the Americans are. Michael Jackson, a converted Muslim of two years, was given a Christian memorial deluged with Christian hymns and songs, and finally buried in a Christian cemetery. I wonder what our 'body snatchers' have to say about this. I wonder whether they will take the next flight out to LA, exhume the body of MJ and smuggled it back home to Malaysia and bury him in a Muslim cemetery. Food for thought though.

Came across this from blogger Maverick (sure or not?)
Wanita MCA strongly objected to the proposals to allow maids from China.
This picture is the maid employed by Datuk Ng Yen Yen's husband and the salary is less than RM400.00.
Six months later, Angel G looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard but no Ark.
Noah! Gabriel roared, God is about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?
Forgive me, begged Noah, 'but things have changed.
Then I've to argue with the BOMBA inspector about the need for a sprinkler system.
After clearing my name, I had to again go to the DBKL Appeal Board for a decision to allow me to build the Ark.
Then Jabatan Immigresen and Rela wants to check the status and working permits of workers.
Every department I turn to is asking for a cup of kopi-o”.
Suddenly I am a suspect behind the murder of the Mongolian lady because the place where she was murdered happens to be on the land where I am going to make the Ark and was arrested.
To make matters worse, the Jabatan HASIL seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species. I have just been released from ISA.
So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark.
Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
Noah looked up in wonder and asked, 'You mean you're not going to destroy the world?'
'No,' said the Lord.
'The Malaysian Government beat me to it!'
