Not Francis Light?

According to NST today, Penang was found by Malays and Hakka Chinese even before arrival of Francis Light (here too) in 1786.

Two leading scholars have claimed that the local Malay and Chinese communities were already contributing towards the development of the island, before Light arrived.

Ahmad Murad, who is also chairman of the Centre of Intellectual History and Malay Thought at Universiti Teknologi Mara in Shah Alam, said Datuk Jannaton, Nakoda Nan Intan and Nakhoda Kechil were already on the island before Light landed.

"History books and other literature items showed that Nakhoda Kechil invited Light to the island back in 1786."

There were already Malay settlers on the island for about 50 years before the arrival of the British."Penang was a melting pot of the Acehnese, Minangkabau and other ethnic groups, with a good society system prior to 1786," said Ahmad Murad.

Echoing his sentiment was Cheah, who also pushed for historical recognition on behalf of the Hakkas."Some early documentation indicated that there were some 58 fishermen living on the island, led by three leaders from China.

"The trio landed in
Tanjung Tokong in 1745 and ruled the local community until they died in 1799," said Cheah, who is also an author of several books on political scenarios in the country.He also said that the "Tua Pek Kong" temple in Tanjung Tokong was built in remembrance of the settlers’ early contributions.

He added that it was the Hakkas who had given suggestions to the British on ways to modernise the island

Bravo Michael Schumacher

Finally Michael Schumacher retired with 7th World Title. Finishing 4th in Brazil Sao Paulo Grand Prix after having early tyre puntured at lap 9 while Massa took 1st and Alonso 2nd. Also Michael took fastest lap with 1m 12.162s.

Sure we all will miss him, the sport he like very much. And we will miss his spirit that he has, never give up till crossing the finishing line. Some people do not like his style some people love it very much. But, you will never find another great driver like him in the near future. Next season, Kimi will join Ferrari and Massa while Alonso join McLaren-Mercedes. Hope Ferrari will continue the wining formula...

My Knee - Preliminary Investigation

Yesterday 13 October 2006 (Friday), i went to HUKM for my knee to be checked at Orthopaedic, under Sport Injury section. Preliminary investigation showed that i might have ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury. The doctors suspecting i have ligamen torn (below my knee cap) because my leg seem to be loosen after they performed series of physical examination. I had a X-ray of my both knee and was found my bones still in good shape.

In order to really confirm what is my problem, i need to do MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) of my knee. Two options were giver to me either do it at HUKM (appointment 03 Jan 2007) or at private hospital (anytime). Fee is about the same RM 700 at HUKM, RM 800 - 900 at Private hospital. Anyway, i choose HUKM la. Upon obtaining my knee MRI scan, then doctor can confirm the actual problem and therefore they will suggest the best way to treat my knee. Mean while, i cannot do sports, take heavy weight, mnimize all activities that can lead me injuring my knee further...... Doctor asked do i still want to active again in sports. Of course want la, i am only 30 ler... I was told too if surgical option is choosen, i may take 3 months to enable me to "fit" again .... meaning that i need to rest at home for at least 1 months or maybe more before i can resume my work. Sure my boss piss off one....
some of the knee info for your reading. Enjoy....

Ligaments are tough, non-stretchable fibers that hold your bones together. The cruciate ligaments in your knee joints crisscross to give you stability on your feet.

The bone structure of the knee joint is formed by the femur, the tibia, and the patella. The ACL is one of the four main ligaments within the knee that connect the femur to the tibia. The knee is essentially a hinged joint that is held together by the medial collateral (MCL), lateral collateral (LCL), anterior cruciate (ACL) and posterior cruciate (PCL) ligaments. The ACL runs diagonally in the middle of the knee, preventing the tibia from sliding out in front of the femur as well as providing rotational stability to the knee (Figure 1).

Surgical and Non-Surgical Options
When a patient with an ACL injury is initially seen for evaluation in the clinic, the doctor may also order X-rays to look for any possible fractures. He or she may also order an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan to evaluate the ACL and to check for evidence of injury to other knee ligaments, meniscus cartilage or articular cartilage.

NEP - Never Ending Policy?

The NEP - stated goal of poverty eradication and economic restructuring so as to eliminate the identification of ethnicity with economic function. The initial target was to move the ratio of economic ownership in Malaysia from a 2.4:33:63 ratio of Bumiputra, Other Malaysian, Foreigner ownership to a 30:40:30 ration.

Recently a lot of argument on ASLI and EFU report on the ownership of Malays. Some leader even said the ASLI report is rubbish (here too) !! Whether it is 45% or 18.9%, it is not important.

The most important fact is, that i think: NEP help the rich Malays become richer, the poor Malays become poorer. What do you think? Because i believe the poor people in kampung, they cant afford to buy shares in KLSE as compared to those cronies in town that lobbying around the politicians. The method of distributing the wealth need to look into but definitely not the way NEP that being carried out so far. Only benefit those greedy Malays!!!

What the hell... Yesterday morning it seem very clear the sky, about noon i can smell something is burning then the haze just suddenly attacked!!! And the whole damn night cover by haze!!! All windows and doors must close tight to avoid this haze from attacking my Henn Henn.

Putra LRT ---- Again?

This morning, early morning, my friend SMS me from Wangsa Maju Station, saying that LRT got problem again... But today i am not using Komuter to KL Sentral, then to KLCC. Instead i was driving this morning together with PL and Henn Henn, on the way to MIL house to pick up her mother, to see another doctor at Gleneagles. Oh ya, the medicine that my son took from the clinic at Serdang Perdana, make him worst, cough even teruk, cannot sleep, cry all night, heart beat increase.... i guess something wrong with the medicine la, shit celaka. So now my wife drive Henn Henn and MIL and Sister to see doctor.

Back the story, normally i take Putra LRT at KL sentral, due to today event, i take Star LRT from Station Pudu, stop at Masjid Jamek. From there take Putra LRt to KLCC. The gate is closed, an officer standing near there, asking us to email, write to newspaper or what ever to complain his company. It was so confuse inside the station, no one know where to go, just wait la... and i am so lucky, only need to wait 5 minutes before the train come at Terminal 2 (suppose at Terminal 1). The train from KLCC reached Masjid Jamek then patah balik to KLCC. Somewhere in between KLCC and Ampang Park has problem..... Idiot, having problem at the wrong time.

Can Ministry of Transport make sure LRT company do thier job after the train service is over, to check, to investigate... And make compensation to all this commuters who kena trap in the trains, stations and time loss ......

P/S: For sure one thing, that today The Sun won't hit 265,000 copies... a lot of people use bus instead of LRT to work today....

2nd Fall

Yesterday he fell down from the matress again, but this time it is about 10" high compared to 2.5' last time. And now his forehead bengkak a bit. Last time he slept on the bed and after few hours of turning to left and right, he finally fell down and hit the floor.

This time different a bit. He try to roll his body twice at one time after put him on the matress while PL went to get warm water to clean his face. So pandai pandai, end up off balance and hit the floor. However, he still not learn from mistake, and try to make funny action again after he stopped crying and put him on the same spot. Roll twice his body and of course i was there to stop him from falling....and he laugh, forgot about the pain and tears he dropped. Budak memang budak. hahahaha.....
