Peace and Blessings on this Holy Month of Ramadan

To all my Muslim friends, here's wishing you all much peace and blessings during this holy month of Ramadan.

The MACC expose letter

After reading the following letter, I feel that there is hope yet for our country as there are still some good men in MACC.

Corrupt practices, misconduct and abuse of power by Senior Officer of MACC Selangor
Respectfully, we would like to refer to the matter above.

We, officers in MACC, feel duty bound to expose the wrongdoing and corrupt practices by a senior officer of MACC – Deputy Director (DD) of MACC Selangor, PKPj I Hishamuddin Bin Hashim. He is related to the cases of Teoh Beng Hock and bungalow house at Section 17, Shah Alam, owned by Dato’ Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Bin Toyo.

2. For the information of YBhg Tan Sri/Dato/Tuan/Puan, DD is indeed involved directly with the investigation of misappropriation cases involving Selangor exco YB Ean (Adun Seri Kembangan). DD’s involvement is not only at the level of official instruction, but he actually instructed specifically MACC officers to try to uncover any possible wrongdoings by the current Selangor state government. He acted so because of his collaboration with Khir Toyo to bring down the Selangor state government. Due to his overzealous approach, hence the death of Teoh Beng Hock. There are a few questions arising from the circumstances of Teoh Beng Hock’s death that concern us MACC officers. We all suspect DD to be responsible for the death of Teoh Beng Hock based on the following facts:

i) DD has instructed all MACC officers involved in the operation not to implicate his direct involvement in the case. In fact, he is the one giving direct orders in the operation and other operations in MACC Selangor. Actually he fears his involvement will compromise his collaboration with Khir Toyo.
ii) The chemistry department has detected finger prints and DNA traces of a mysterious male at the two frontal sides of Teoh Beng Hock’s waist belt. According to our knowledge, DD has his unique interrogation technique, i.e. he would hold the belt of the person under interrogation, lift him/her a few times and shake him/her.
iii) The process to extract DNA samples from MACC Selangor officers was conducted in two sessions. In the first session, DD ran away to avoid having his sample taken. However, DD was said to have given his DNA sample in the second session under dubious circumstances, i.e. he gave his sample in his room while all other MACC officers, including the MACC Director, gave their samples in the meeting room together openly. Why did DD give his DNS sample hidden in his room? Is the sample given by him indeed belong to him? We the MACC officers are curious because none of the DNA samples collected matches that of the mysterious male. We suggest that DNA sample of DD be taken again under the watch by trusted people.
iv) We have gotten information that DD has instructed his subordinates to erase fingerprints found at the window where Teoh fell to his death. This is proven as the police has failed to find any traces of fingerprints new or old at that window. The question is, why did DD give that instruction?
v) Based on the information we obtained, we suspect DD did not punch out when he left office on 16 July 2009 at 6.10am. This is cricial because it would be evidence that DD was the last person to have seen Teoh. The question is, why did you not punch out when he usually does so? For the record, he is a person paying attention to his punch card.

3. For the information of YBhg Tan Sri/Dato/Tuan/Puan, DD is very influential in the investigation operations in Selangor, or even the whole Malaysia. In MACC Selangor alone, he is the most important person to decide whether or not a case is to be prosecuted, even though such power is supposed to be in the hand of the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP). Decisions made by him favour his own interests or his cronies’. It is no surprise that he has been helming the investigation unit of ACA/MACC Selangor for more than ten years, i.e. since the Selangor state government under Barisan Nasional (Khir Toyo) and until the current Selangor state government. He has been promoted in quick succession from Grade 41 to Grade 54 within 16 years without reassignment and remained in MACC Selangor until now. According to ACA/MACC department policy, an officer who has been promoted or served for more than 5 years in a state will be reassigned to another location to avoid him from being involved in local corruption problem. One of the reasons that he has not been reassigned elsewhere is that he has been tasked to “take care” of interests of Dato’s Seri Khir Toyo in Selangor. Because of this, to reciprocate, Khir Toyo has to “take care” of DD’s interests in Selangor.

4. Due to his comfortable position in ACA/MACC Selangor from then till now, he has been involved with various corrupt acts and abuse of power. Among the corrupt acts and abuse of power by DD that we have detected/investigated are as follows:
i) Closing the case of Khir Toyo involving approval of a road construction project, which is the most expensive, spanning bendang at Sekinchan, for a distance of 20.5km, at a price of RM92.5 million to the contractor who was almost blacklisted – Meram Holdings. According to JKR assessment, the cost of the road should not exceed RM50 million. The subcontractor running the project is Cabaran Wangsa, owned by Pua Kim An, who was once the landlord of Khir, while the other director of the company, Ahmad Tarmizi Tajjeury, is Khir’s crony, and he got 100 acres of land giving him a profit of RM20 million.
ii) In possession of assets beyond his means, including:
a. Owns a few houses for rental, including one two-storey luxurious terrace house which was purchased at a very attractive price from Pemaju Kumpulan Lebar Daun Development Sdn Bhd, as a result of closing the case of investigation against Group Executive Chairman, Dato’s Noor Azman @ Noor Hizam bin Mohd Nurdin. The case was investigated by ACA Selangor a few years ago and he owned a few more houses. As a smokescreen to the public and his subordinates, he has been living in the government quarters at Kg. Atap, Kuala Lumpur.
b. Owns a Petronas petrol station located at the left side of Federal Highway at Km 8.6 – Km 8.7, Section 1, Federal Highway, Shah Alam 40000 Selangor (near the Melati roundabout, in the direction of Klang from Shah Alam), registered under the name of his elder brother. The petrol station has just started operation this year (2009), and it is built on part of the land of a Chinese cemetery. He managed to obtain the land to build the petrol station as a result of his power as well as due to the Khir Toyo administration in Selangor.
c. Owns a few plots of land around Shah Alam, where one of them is believed to be beside the new SACC Mall, registered under the name of the wife of a driver in MACC Selangor, Abdullah b Azim, she being a full time housewife in her late 30s.
iii) Caught in adultery with a junior officer of the rank of Investigator called Nor Azlina bt Mustafa at the lake side of Shah Alam Lake in early 2009 by two police officers. He in turn showed his authority card and informed the police officers that he and the Investigator were in an operation and hence let off by the police. After a few intimate incidents with the Investigator, the affair is known by many, including his wife. The action taken by the department is to reassign the Investigator to MACC HQ at Putrajaya. This action is not effective as Azlina is still seen with DD at the Selangor office.

5. This letter was writen to uphold integrity and challenge injustice, in the MACC specifically and Malaysia as a whole. We at the MACC can no longer stand to observe this behaviour which is approved by higher-ups. We at the MACC have exhausted our options in looking for a department/institution/NGO which can bring forward this issue so that appropriate action can be taken.

6. We the officers in MACC are greatly appreciative and thankful to you all for bringing up this matter to the people and the relevant authorities so that there will be an organisation/NGO that can take the appropriate action or independent investigation until the matter can be brought to the cabinet. The matter is very important because it involves the integrity of an officer serving in a department charged with enforcing law on crimes related to human integrity. DD is now working very hard by instructing his subordinates to do witch hunt on PKR which governs Selangor state now, with the hope that PKR will fall in Selangor and his secrets will be safe. For your information, DD is fearful whenever news of Dato’ Seri Khir Toyo appears in the media and he is fearful that if Khir’s case will expose his own case.

7. Our hope is, there will be party which is courageous to voice out our information here so that our action attracts the attention of authority and just action can be taken against him and put him to justice. We ourselves are not capable of taking action against him because he has “cable” (connection) to the top.

8. Cooperation from YBhg Tan Sri/Dato/Tuan/Puan is very much appreciated and hopefully your action will bring out more information exposing people without integrity so that MACC and its officers are clear of corruption.

Thank you very much.
We who follow instruction,
MACC Officers

You have to pay $$$$$ to ASTRO to remember Yasmin Ahmad!?!?!?

I am pissed off with ASTRO and I believe the time is fast approaching near when I will terminate my subscription with them, just like I did to the Star and NST. The recent increase in the subscription fees was bad enough as the excuse (not reason) given by ASTRO was that the Sports Channel has become costly of late. So instead of absorbing the increase, they decided to pass it on to the subscribers with a catch, i.e. if they did not hear from you, the amount will automatically be debitted to you.

Here comes the last straw. For almost two weeks I have been following the "YADK" programme on Channel 110, a channel specially dedicated to the memory of Yasmin Ahmad. This morning when I turned to the channel, they have taken it off and instead, to watch the show, you will now have to subscribe to it. How heartless can ASTRO be. Yasmin is dead and they are making money out of her!!! These guys in ASTRO are nothing more than a bunch of vultures.

One more thing. Customer service is not their forte. I have written 2 emails to them since the beginning of the year, but have not received a single reply. All I ever got each time was a female staff calingl me up just to inform me they have received my email and would be replying soon. I even betted with the girl to say that ASTRO will never reply my email. True enough!

The "finesse" of Rais Yatim

I once met Rais Yatim at a golf club in 1990 when he was still with Semangat46. He talked to me very excitingly about the new found cooperation his party had then with DAP and PAS. He continued to chatter away about new strategies to take on UMNO. He was, in my opionion, a very polished gentleman, spoke with an accent and articulated himself very well.

Today, years after his return to UMNO, we now see an uncouthed Rais Yatim, holding a press conference. A reporter posed a question to him in English and this was what he (the reporter) received!!!

And if this was not bad enough, that Mamak fella now suggested that all Chinese newspapers be translated into the national language. Er .... come again????? I guess his reasoning being, since the Chinese (and other non-Malays) can read and understand BM pusblished by the Malay msm, it is only fair that the Malays should be able to read what the Chinese papers have printed via a translated version. Is this a sign of senility or what? Don't believe me, just read this.

Fifty two years after independence, the Malay language is already a part of our lives and many Malaysians from all walks of life speak and write BM proficiently. We do not need to go overboard with all these charades.

Do make a difference to someone today

When I first came across this video, I thought it would be just another one of those inspirational stuff sent to me by my good friends. Then I decided to sit right through the entire presentation and by the time I came to the end of it, I could almost feel the story tugging at my heart strings.

Instead of fighting which race is superior, which religion is better, which MB is better or which party is better, why not go out and make a difference to someone out there today and who knows, this world could still be a better place to live in yet.

Watch the video and be blessed!

Khairy's ceramah

My goodness, Khairy, is this all the people you can garner to hear you speak? Empty chairs? If this is the sign of things to come for UMNO, they may as well kiss goodbye to the 13th GE. In the same vein, since the response to your ceramah is so wanting, Rohaizat may as well kiss goodbye to his hope to be the people's representative in the coming Permatang Pasir by-election. Would a walk-over be in order?

Theme song for PAS

Okay, here is the theme song dedicated to PAS by the PAS Supporters Club, featuring the late Teresa Teng. Enjoy the song.

Woi, Sharizat. Watch where you are placing your hand.

Aiyoh, Yen Yen, Yen Yen

Ng negating some tourism ministry credibility with Jean Todt

Maybe the lack of sleep is making me a bit 'psycho' la, as they say. But read this quote from our Tourism Minister ..............

"The Selangor government’s failure to gazette Little India here as a tourist spot has negated the Federal Government’s efforts to promote the area and fails to recognise Indian traders' contributions to the economy".....Tourism Minister, Ng Yen Yen.

Now, read it again. Don't you just want to slap the woman. Does she know what she is saying? Does she check what her speech writer writes for her to mouth? And that last bit about the Selangor government failing to recognise Indian traders' contributions to the economy!!! I mean what the FUCK!!! Selangor, until 6 months ago was governed by Barisan Nasional. So who are the ones who failed to gazette Little India and recognise Indian traders' contributions? Really?

"...has negated the Federal Government's efforts...". Well, at least it is good to know that somebody somewhere can still negate something from the Federal Government with all its fire power. Maybe there is still hope hor?

How To Call The Police When You're Old And Don't Move Fast Anymore

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

George said, "Okay.." He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." And he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

(True Story) I LOVE IT!
Don't mess with old people
