Wan Cibai

A friend of mine from my PPP days was diagnosed with liver cancer stage 4.  I forgot his full name, all I could remember his name is Azwan.  Maybe Khairul Azwan or Mohd Azwan.  But we usually call him Wan Cibai, because he always uses that word.  But don't get me wrong, he's not a person with foul mouth, it's just that sometimes he used the word when nobody expected it.  

He is a very good person who hails from Kedah.  Soft spoken, quiet and very low profile.  I could still remember while most of us would spend all of our monthly allowance to ourselves, he would sent back half the money to his parents in his kampung.  So he was living on approximately RM150 a month.  Anybody who used to be in PPP knows very well that RM150 is not enough.  But he survived.

He is now an ADO in Kedah.  I'm not sure which district.  It has been a very long time since I last met him.  More than 12 years ago if I'm not mistaken.  Such a pity that a good person like him is suffering from this gruesome illness.  But Allah works in a way we could never understand.  And please remember that 'Penyakit' is one of the 'Ujian Besar' that we will be tested upon.

I hope that his family will be strong to go through this phase.  Pray to God and hope for His mercy.  And to all my PPP friends, let us pray for Azwan.  Let's hope he'll get well soon.  Insya Allah.

Dep Minister Against 1Sekolah Campaign

Recently, the Demi Negara community started a campaign - Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua, Satu Bahasa Satu Bangsa Satu Negara.  The campaign is aimed at reinventing the current education system which is promoting different streams of schools ie Sekolah Kebangsaan, Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan etc etc.  

According to them, there should be only one type of school.  And this is the only way for us to forge a cohesive and unified community and nation.  We need to start with the language.  Every Malaysians must be able to converse flawlessly in Malay.  Just look at other countries, none of them have different type of schools, different languages.

I support them 1,000,000,000%.  And any other proud Malaysians should too.  To read more about this campaign, go here.

Unfortunately, there's this one Dep Minister who is not happy with this campaign.  I wonder why?  I reckon he's politically motivated.  I'm tired of this bullshit lah.  I mean, it's time for the politicians to stop sucking up to their voters' whims and start telling them the truth about the right way to build a strong nation.  Stop playing the racial card.  Start rereading the constitution, understand it, respect it and discharge their responsibilities accordingly.

Seriously la dudes, I'm tired and fed up la.  Insaf la Malaysians ooiii.

America's got a new idol.  Kriss Allen.  I never believed he could win.  I predicted that Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey would be in the final.  But I was wrong.  

Last night, I thought Adam would stroll to the crown.  Again, I was wrong.  But still, I feel that in term of talent, Lambert and Gokey are much much much better than Allen.  Maybe Kris is more likable or may be people feel that Adam and Danny would do well regardless whether they win or lose.  Dunno la.  But Kara really showed her stuffs last nite huh?  Ahahahh....daring ah.  And that Katrina gal has got more flesh now huh?  Perghhh...

And just now, the court has decided and declared who is the rightful MB of Perak.  I was delighted as I thought the imbroglio is finally over.  Turned out that there is still one more appeal process.'s not over yet folks.  The people of Perak are still in the crosshair of mayhem.  Bila nak habis daa....

May 13th

Some say that we should forget about the past and instead, focus on the present and the future. I disagree.  I feel that although some of our history may not be pretty, but we still need it as a reminder to the young generation of the mistakes we made in the past.  These mistakes should not be repeated by the young as it will only hold us back and prevents us from progressing.

Recently, I came across some suggestions in blogs that we should totally forget about May 13th.  Again, I disagree.  In fact, I feel that each and everyone of us must know May 13th by heart.  The question is now, how do we do that?  Most of the infos are either too general or too hard to find.  Just look at Tunku Abd Rahman's book - May 13 : Before and After.  It's become a rare item.  Plus most of us are too busy to find time to read books.  We'd rather read blogs.

So, I'd like to take this opportunity to urge all of you to read Jebat Must Die's take on May 13.  I'm not asking you to believe it bluntly, just read and analyze and learn; and if you have the time, dig deeper.  You can use the references he quoted in his posts.  It's good stuff.  Kudos to Bro JMD.  Happy reading folks.

Fuhh....the internet been down since Friday.  Dunno why.  Felt like being in the stone age :)

Anyways, this entry would be short and sharp la.

First of all, Happy Mother's Day (belated la) to all mothers especially to my mother, my MIL and last but not least my wife.  You guys rock!!

Secondly, the latest twist in Perak political scene has affected the morale of the government servants.  Now, everything is being put on hold, all the plannings are in the verge of collapsing.  This is not good la.  A waste of time and energy.  Boring.

That's all folks.  See ya!!

I think all political science, law and history majors are having a field trip today.  Trip to Perak that is.  The situation is tense and yet exciting.  I think both sides wont budge.  Not sure how long or who could unravel this gridlock.

While the uncertainty in the Dewan is happening in a full air conditioned room, the law enforcement officers are busting their ass under the scorching sun.  Pity them.  The people of Perak is indebted to these officers.  Though they may not realize it.....or refuse to do so.

I plan to go to the hospital later in the day to visit my staff.  Not sure how to go there though.  Busan ah....   


Everybody is entitled to their own opinion.  It's an opinion ok.  It's not about right or wrong.  It's just an opinion.

So when you opined, you'll expose yourself to criticisms.  Some maybe good and some maybe bad.  And you cannot blame the critics just because their opinions are different than yours.  Just like you, they might be right and they might be wrong.  

So if you call yourself an open minded person, please walk the talk.  Open your heart and mind to accept criticisms.  Because the truth is, nobody's perfect as the cliche says it.    

Whenever you are engaged in a heated debate, it's normal for you to stand your ground.  Defend it with all the ammos you got.  But, if you are losing, please be prepared to accept defeat too.  Losing the battle is not the same as losing the war.  Yup, another cliche.  

And please do not ridiculed people or call them harsh names just because you felt defeated or insulted or about to be defeated.  It's just so immature.  Yup, that's it.  IMMATURE!!

Impenetrable to criticisms, ridiculing people, calling names are the traits of an insecure, immature and amateur person.  I just hate these type of people.  Grow up la wei!

May 7th

Tomorrow is May 7th.  The Perak State Legislative Assembly will convene.  I bet everybody in Malaysia is waiting for what will happen tomorrow.  Some excitedly, some anxiously.

Frankly, I anticipate that tomorrow would be chaotic and catastrophic.  I just hope that all the Wakil Rakyats will actually use their brains and not to misbehave while the Tuanku is present.  I hope they would show some respect to the Tuanku.  

Despite many critics claiming the Tuanku was biased, unfair and so on and so forth.  I believe the Tuanku is a fair man.  A man of wisdom.  If he is biased, he wouldn't confer the 'Dato' Seri'ship and Dato'ship to the previous MB and his senior exco respectively.  I mean he doesn't even know these people before the last general election, and yet, as a sign of recognition of their status in the Perak Government he conferred the titles.

To the supporters form both sides of the divide, I urge that all of you to obey the law and instructions by the police.  Better still, don't go near the SUK building.  Please don't listen to rumours spreaded by the ubiquitous rumour mongers who got their infos from the kedai kopis, kedai mamaks and kopitiams.  Don't worry, the media is there, they will report the happenings inside SUK.  Just wait in front of your TVs, radios and PCs.

To my friends in SUK.  Take care of yourselves.  Don't go outside.  Stay inside your offices.  You'll never know what the supporters are capable of doing.  All is needed is just one simple provocation and all hell will break lose.  So be careful you guys.

Dunno la.  Hope for the best!

Well I'm here now and I intend to finish up whatever being left by my predecessors.  Hopefully...

Babai Bibik Asiah

My bibik went back last Saturday after more than 2 years working with us. Actually she wanted to continue working here, but her husband didn't consent.  What a pity.  She was a good bibik.  Hard working, honest and most importantly she loves my boys.  She treated them like her own.  That's the most important thing for me. 

Although she's not perfect, but I don't mind.  She's illiterate.  So sometimes it was hard for us to leave a written 'to-do' list.  It has to be verbal.  Sometimes she forgets things.  But overall, I was satisfied with her service.

My wife asked her about her plans once she got back.  She said she and her family will move to Bali and open a stall there.  She wants to sell nasi lemak and mi kari since those dishes are not available in Indon.  I hope she'll do fine.  

Her family is poor you know.  Her husband sells satay for a living.  The revenue gained from the business couldn't sustain the household expenditure.  And she was not working before she came to Malaysia.  So with the money she saved while she was here, her home now is enjoying electricity.  Yup, it's the year 2009 my friends, and they've just started to enjoy electricity.  So, the next time you to want to rant about how hard your lives are, remember bibik.

Last Saturday, she couldn't contain her sadness.  She cried when we sent her to the gate.  My MIL also cried and so did Akif.  Akif started crying when she saw his bibik cried.  I wasn't sure whether he cried because he knew bibik was leaving or because he saw bibik cried.  Akif ni sentimentel sket.  If he sees somebody cries. he too will cry.  But I think it was good that he cried, at least bibik knows or can assume that Akif will miss him.  It proves that she had done a good job.

Alif didn't cry at all.  This is not the first time for him.  This is his third bibiks already.  My wife and I, we didn't cry too.  But still, I feel a little bit sad to lose such a good bibik.  So far, my family is being blessed with good bibiks.  Alhamdulillah.  

Now, we are waiting for our fourth bibik.  Hope she'll do better or at least equals the bibiks before her.  Like I said, all that matters to me is that she treats my boys well.  Insya Allah.

To bibik Asiah, Thanks You for the good job and May Allah bless you and your family.
