Special Task Force - Taxi Driver

BN lead government is very creative. From full control of mainstream media, then try to control blogging (try la, not successful yet), now using taxi to "feed" data to Rakyat. It is something like "pocket reference book" that we used to have when we are in SPM. But here they called it Saku Maklumat. But for me, i can't read it, or else i will vomit in the car, dizzy ler reading in car me...

Quote The Star:

More than 250 taxi drivers in the Kinta Valley have been roped in by the Government in its efforts to feed the people with correct information.

Each of the drivers were supplied with an information kit containing materials on Government policies and its decisions on certain issues.

"By doing this, we hope those engaged in coffee shop discussions can talk facts and not unfounded stuff when raising issues affecting the country,"

Anti Toll Hike

As my wife is one of the Rakyat that will travel to work using LDP. From previously RM 1.00 to RM 1.60 on 1st January 2007, an increase of 60%. My wife need to "vomit" out another RM 1.20/day just to feed the Pirate. As DPM Najib asked Rakyat "let's make 2007 special", so i guess this is one of the "special" besides all the specials he asked!!!

Quote Sinchew:




Ya, just to remind those people who are going to celebrate Chinese New Year, please pray hard that the importing of preserved duck, lap cheong, etc. is not retricted because it is not halal. Or else, make your own lap cheong and preserved duck from khinzir and kampung duck lah!!! This is another special from Najib too!!

One more question, since we cannot import due to haram issue, can we export ah?

My baby

Enjoy moment for HH, although not his party. haha.

Malayan Anti-Japanese Martyrs Monument

Malayan Anti-Japanese Martyrs Monument (抗日纪念碑)at the Nilai Memorial Park in Negri Sembilan is erected to honour the former Malayan communists?


Is that mean the Monument for Anti-Japanese at Penang Ayer Itam also considered as Pro-Communist? Stupid right? Can't even understand the history yet made stupid comments. Another dead wood minister by Malaysia Cabinet.

Change Head of PBAPP

Finally what UMNO Bahagian Bukit Mertajam demand fulfill!!!

The chief executive officer of PBA Holdings Bhd (PBAHB) Datuk Liew Chook San has tendered his resignation.

PBAPP development manager Jaseni Maidinsa will take over as acting CEO of PBAHB and acting general manager of PBAPP effective from Jan 13.

Liew’s resignation came months after calls by a state Umno division in August for Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, who is also PBAHB chairman, to give up his chairmanship to Umno.

Public Toilet

Even public toilet hygiene also required our horourable DPM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to concern? This issue has been taught in primary school since day 1 when we started our education life. Sorry not primary school, it is kindergarten.

Treat the public toilet like your house toilet. You use it, you clean it.

Oh Thai Baht

Change Life Style, Change Government

We, Rakyat, were told by the Government that BN_lead_Government no longer able to pay compensation to those highway concessionaires (which mostly control by GLCs and in fact we, Rakyat, were asked by the Government to pay the Government) and the leaders asking us, Rakyat, to help to pay some.

We, Rakyat, were told by DPM, Najib, to change life style by using public transport when the BN_lead_Government increase the petrol price suddenly, few hours before it took effective.

Then, Rakyat, like me, who can't afford to pay more petrol, tolls and hell jam in KL, decided to change life style by going to work using KTM Komuter and Putra LRT - a very pack yet not up to par public transport provider, again provided by Government after RM 4.5b rescue action which i did contribute some through my tax money. Rakyat, no choice and were forced to change life style to adapt to a more challenging environment. Out of no where, Rakyat like me, switch to public transport.

Too busy to collect money after making a hell loss of money due to improper management, high ticket fares and Rakyat not yet changed life style at that time, now the Putra LRT trains are in bad shape, not once, but many many time in 2006 alone. Last friday 15 Dec 2006 and today (18 Dec 2006) also having some so-called technical problem. Trains were moving extremly slow, stop few minutes at each station. And the most piss off thing is they announce it when you had enter the station after paying the ticket. What the heck is it?

Toll Increase 60%...

what? LDP increase 60% while KESAS increase 47%. (sinchew)

Thank to MalaysiaKini for latest news and KJ for full text:

Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) saw its toll rate rise from RM1 to RM1.60, an increase of 60 percent.

As for the Kesas Highway, the rate increased from RM1.50 to RM2.20, a 46.7-percent hike.

The Cheras-Kajang Highway's Batu 9 toll increased from 70 sen to RM1, while the Cheras-Kajang Batu 11 toll went up to 90 sen from 60 sen - a hike of between 42.9 and 50 percent.

The Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway's Gombak toll is now at RM5, an increase of RM1, while the highway's Bentong toll will increased by 50 sen to RM3. The hikes along this highway are the lowest, between 20 and 25 percent.

Meanwhile, the Guthrie Corridor Expressway toll rate went up from RM1 to RM1.40 - a 40-percent increase.

The new toll rates were announced by Works Minister S Samy Vellu this afternoon and will be effective on Jan 1 next year.

Another great achievement by BN Government....

Damn it man. Change your life style, said DPM. Ya dun drive la, then see Proton can survive or not. All the cronies gone with our oney, laughing all the way to bank. Compensate the Rakyat money to the concessionaires which mostly control by GLCs. Is that mean BN lead Government use Rakyat money to pay BN lead Government? And sorry to those people stay outside klang Valley, because you too contribute some money to the Cronies which you never use the highway, even for life.

Really piss off. No transparency in contract, tenders. And 2nd Penang Bridge is another bloody sucker "piratization" project by Barisan National...


50 Years is Enough !!! That's It.

VOTE DAP, ADIL, PAS, Independent or anyone other than BN for the sake of your next generation.

Are You A Voter?

Hey people out there? Are you already a voter? If not, kindly go to Post Office, give your original IC (MyKad) to the staff, give up your time for 5 minutes and get yourself register!!! So simple!!!

My sister did it on early September, today i checked online for her. She is now able to vote in the coming General Election which is coming soon either 2007 or 2008. Lead time to enable you to become a valid voter take about 3 months. So do it ASAP to avoid not able to vote like what had happended in 1999 General Election.

Quote Malaysia Today:
If these 7% to 9% had not been denied their right to vote -- including the 680,000 voters who had registered earlier but could not vote because their names had not been entered into the voters’ list -- were included in the voters’ list, an additional one million people would have voted in the 1999 General Election.

So, dude, go and register, vote for better tomorrow, vote for better future.

Time To Change!!! 50 years is ENOUGH!!!


人人都说,旧的不去, 新的不来。 我偏偏说,新的不来,旧的不去。 除非弄丢了,不然那会去买新的。但是,如果是换新的,那就是新的不来,旧的不去。追根究底,钱就是万恶之源, 人为财死,鸟为食亡。如果钱不是问题,旧的不去先或新的不来先都不重要了。

终于买了我的新鞋,RM50吧了 (South City 购买)。

Anakku High Chair

Just bought the high chair from Anakku at Mines for RM 125.91 after 10% discount. Quite solid. And the shirt he wear is bought from Hong Kong by his aunty Ah Kuan for HK 360 (damn expensive!!!). But cantik la.

MyKad, Koyak dan Buang?

How rude the JAIS officers!!!

Thursday, November 30, 2006


Yesterday after office hour, went to toilet, took the lift, walked to lobby, stepped from the glass door, suddenly wind blowed to me, immediately i was dizzy. I cant even walked straight, my head kept on spinning only, like Gasing, the whole world macam wanna collapsed. Never happen before. Something is wrong with me!!!! But what??

Maybe not enough sleep for the past few days? Or thinking too much until some of the "valve" accidentally closed it, blocking the air to my "processor"?? I think i need some rest, just concentrate my job first. Stop thinking camera, shares, politics ......

Maybe the radiation from hand phone disturbing my receptor!!!

Water Rate for Apartment Users

Yesterday i saw the notice by management office saying the Water Rate for us (apartment users) has increased from RM1.20/cu.m to RM 1.38/cu.m effectively 1st November 2006.

It doesn't matter how many cu.m of water i use, even if i use only One (1) cu.m, i still will be charge at RM 1.38. What the hell is that? Other users (others than Apartment and Condominium) are being charged at RM 0.57/cu.m for 1st 20 cu.m. Why? Is it because those who stay at Apartment are RICHER compared to Semi-D, Terrace House, Bungalow???

Why should we pay RM 1.38 when others pay only RM 0.57, a different of RM 0.81 / cu.m???? Why the rate increase even when we use less than 20 cu.m???

This is unacceptable!!!

Nikon D40

New release dSLR from Nikon D40. The most compact and lightweight Nikon digital SLR ever, combining outstanding picture quality with a design that's easy for everyone.

Some Nikon Cameras that i compared. Price should be less than RM 3k as D50 cost less than that too.

Pirates In Town Again

Mah Deh, still want to increase toll rate (here) in Klang Valley. Idiot!!!

"Toll rates will be increased for five concessionaires come Jan 1, 2007, according to Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

He said the Government could not afford to compensate the concessionaires for the Guthrie Corridor Expressway, Karak Highway, Grand Saga Cheras-Kajang Highway, Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP) and Kesas Shah Alam Highway the estimated RM2bil, if no increase was approved during this round of concession agreements"

Why the hell BN government want to come up the stupid Contract that will benefit the Pirate Highway Concessionaires when ever they are not allow to increase the toll rate? Who the hell behind all these company who take care the highway?

On another news, Guthrie going to sell off Guthrie Corridor to Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) for RM 936 million. So, after sapu the money, now wanna sell off, and increase the toll rate?

Mean while, another new Highway is on the way to Suck Rakyat money. Prolintas, which is a unit of Permodalan Nasional Bhd, owns 90% of PLSAS, while the remaining 10% is held by Island & Peninsular Bhd.

Quote The Sun:
He was speaking after witnessing a signing ceremony between the government and Projek Lintasan Shah Alam Sdn Bhd (PLSAS) on a 40-year concession of the Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway.

Hey 40 years you know, not 14 years!!!!
