Health: Read It

My mother always ask me not to use mosquitoes spray saying that it will cause cancer. Maybe she is right! Anyway, i hate the smell of the spray even though i hate mosquitoes more. I think it is very common that preagnant ladies should avoid sitting inside a fogging area.

Beware of pesticides, pregnant women warned


PENANG: Pregnant women exposed to common household pesticides are putting their unborn babies at risk of developing breast cancer later on in life.

Even the slightest exposure to chemicals used in gardening and on insects and mosquitoes could cause dormant cancer cells to develop, Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Asia Pacific scientist and PAN Aotearoa/New Zealand coordinator Dr Meriel Watts said at the PAN 25th Anniversary Conference.

Watts, who launched her book Pesticides and Breast Cancer: A Wake Up Call at the event Friday, said the book, which was a collation of scientific evidence spanning more than 30 years, provided compelling argument for preventing the exposure of women and girls to many of today’s commonly used pesticides.

"The book takes a very comprehensive look at 98 pesticides—including insecticides, herbicides and fungicides with the potential to cause breast cancer.

"One of the critical aspects is to see if these pesticides promote breast cancer cell growth especially at the foetal stage.

"Breast cancer is by far the most common cause of cancer in women throughout the world. The disease is also escalating in the Asia Pacific region. It is time for systemic change in our attitude to pesticides," she said, adding that the book which took three years to complete, was aimed at creating greater awareness about the dangers of pesticides not just for women who work in the fields, but also for expecting mothers and young girls.

New Toll Rates

Toll rates for highway will be increased starting 1st Jan 2008. However, there are four highway that the toll are not increase and the BN-lead-government need to compensate RM344 m including LDP and NNKSB.

Why the toll for the other highways increase?

The reason is simple:
The reason for increasing toll rates at some of the highways was because there was low traffic, Samy Vellu said.

So, don't be too happy especially NSE & Penang Bridge users. You are actually paid for it even though the toll rates are not increase! Don't be too happy also for Rakyat of East Coast and East Malaysia that you think you will never feel the General Erection as you think you are not going to use that highway in your daily life. Bear in mind that the compensation is from our Tax Money, that you and me is paying every year. Why the contract is being draft in such a manner that the compensation is calculated based on traffic volume? When the Government draft that contract can't they projected the conservative figure? Who draft that blood sucking contract anyway?


In another report by, Deputy Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed said that the toll rate per kilometre in Malaysia is still the cheapest in the region and every increase considered by the government is affordable to motorists.

Somehow he forgot what is the income per capital of Malaysian compared to the neighbouring countries. The same old lame excuse being used by the ministries.

Quote from The Star:

KUALA LUMPUR: The toll on six highways will be raised by between 7.69% and 50% on Jan 1 but rates on four major ones, including the closed-toll portion of the North-South Expressway (NSE), will be maintained.

The highways where toll will be increased are the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH), the North-South Central Link (Elite), the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE), the Second Link, the New North Klang Straits Bypass (NNKSB), the two ends of the NSE at the Johor Causeway and the Bukit Kayu Hitam toll plaza.

The Causeway and Bukit Kayu Hitam are the only two open toll portions of the NSE. A closed-toll system is where road users pay according to the distance travelled while the open concept charges a fixed fee regardless of mileage.

Elite is operated by Expressway Lingkaran Tengah Sdn Bhd, BKE by Malaysia Mining Corporation and NNKSB by Syarikat Konsesi. Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong. The NSE, SPDH and the Causeway are operated by PLUS Highway.

Quote from TheStar:
PUTRAJAYA: The Election Commission has endorsed an additional electoral roll of registered voters for the third quarter of this year.

Its public relations officer Sabri Said said the roll contained the names of 412,756 voters, 308,076 of whom were newly registered ones and 104,680 were applications to change their voting address.

The roll will be gazetted today.

“The EC has omitted 141,063 names from the record of registered voters. The EC also received 1,381 applications for new registration and change of address, which could not be resolved because of claims and protests. We also received 1,873 objections for applications for parliamentary constituencies in Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang.

“This will be dealt with in the fourth quarter,” said Sabri in a statement here yesterday.

The number of registered voters is now 10.8 million.

“Voters are also encouraged to check their details on the electoral roll. They can make corrections by e-mailing,” said Sabri.

PROTON End Talks

UPDATES at 5.10pm:
Closing price RM4.02, drop 92c, almost 18.6%.

By 3.06pm, Proton stock drop more than 92c and at one point drop to 96c.

Quote from NST:

"....the government decided to end the negotiations after studying recent positive developments in the car company."...

Consumer confidence in Proton cars has also improved, following stricter quality control. A poll showed that Proton's Consumer Satisfaction Index had risen to 713 points from 677 points last year.

Government said consumer confidence improved, but seem like the stock of PROTON not reflect that. Investors are "throwing" the shares. Refer the Figure. Should PROTON partner with foreign carmaker? I think in long term, Yes.

He Knew It!

Wonder how come he knew it, because Pak Lah told him? Told him to transfer few thousand voters to Ipoh Timur and etc?

According to Merdeka Review:

and TheSun:
I can't lie to you that I don't know when the next general election will be held. I can't tell you when, but I have given enough reminders to all to prepare for the polls," Bernama quoted Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman as saying.

According to a friend of mine from PG Island, his mother heard something from a YB of MCA, saying that the GE will be held before Chinese New Year. This is quite true with what the election watchdog's prediction. A colleague of mine, a malay, told me that 13 Jan 2008 will be the last day of Haji. That is 10 days after my knee operation. And that is also the hottest week to announce the next GE. It also means that i will have around 20 - 25 days after knee operation to go back PG to cast my vote with the help of stretches. Sure my wife will ask me not to go back, but can i? Die-die also must vote!

Believe it or Not, Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman KNEW it!!!

SS & Denial Syndrome

Quote from TheSun:

"DEPUTY Education Minister Datuk Hon Choon Kim said Malaysian universities failed to be on the Times Higher Education Supplement’s (THES) list of top 200 universities this year not because the quality of the institutions has dropped but because foreign universities are moving ahead too fast."......

What kind of mentality our deputy minister has? He claimed that our Universities are improving but not too fast compared to the others. Is it still in conclusion that we are still lag behind? This is SS (syok sendiri) and another Denial Syndrome of our Government.

We should keep on improving ourself and always compared to the others. When there is competition & pressure, then only you can improve fast. Maybe i am wrong ...... Maybe you have a better way ......

10th November 2007 - A Day to Remember

A day to remember.

Three (3) things happened.
1. BERSIH Peace Demonstration
2. Wai Har & Keat Hong - Wedding Dinner at Royal China Restaurant
3. Ai Wah's Birthday

As i mentioned in my earlier post, all the roads that lead to city center were blocked by Police because Police got nothing else to do than checking every single car that drove to KL. Why, because they knew the Rakyat are angry, frustrated and dissapointed of what Malaysia is suffering now, they want to have a clean Election. And i belive Polices have the same feeling too just that they were receiving the order from the top to crack the rally. I mean BN la.

That day 10th November 2007 also is Wai Har & Keat Hong wedding dinner. A B2K from UPM, coursemate of me. Dinner started at 7pm but maybe due to jam and also bad habit of Chinese (always late for wedding dinner), the dinner started at 8.15pm. Ally & Family supposed to attend the dinner also but due to heavy traffic jam in North - South Highway, thanks to efficience Police that block the road, they turned back to Seremban at the Bangi area.

List of B2K that attended:
1. Kwang Hui & Family
2. Tuck Seong & Family
3. Chee Wei & Family
4. Me, PL, HH
5. Mun Wai
6. Boon Keat
7. KJ & FK (girl friend)
8. Wai Kong
9. Ai Wah

Final event was Lim Ai Wah's Birthday. We all must thanks Boon Keat for the Secret Recepi's Apple Cheese Cake. Cut the cake in my house and tok kok till 2.30am.

Lahad Datu Town, Sabah

Lahad Datu Town

Jalan Teratai

Mini Airport of Lahad Datu

If only you need it!

Fokker 50, Maswings

Some photos to share. Having my dinner somewhere behind the hotel i stayed - Asia Hotel, a new operated hotel officially opened in August this year. The restaurant called Restaurant Pantai, they have a special teh called Teh Pantai. The Asia Hotel equiped with WiFi and for twin beds room, only RM 108 nett.

It is a small town. A super small Airport only Fokker can be landed. If you are giving a choice now, i do not want to fly in Fokker anymore, so painful! Small is one issue as i am tall. Engine noise is killing me for the 55 minutes journey from Kota Kinabalu to Lahad Datu. Maybe i still prefer to travel by car, where i can always enjoy the scenery.

Oh ya, i am going to Lumut on 21st Nov 2007 and one more time to Gua Musang early next month. And other trips to Johor and Sabah, sorry la, i am bored now to travel to Johor and fly to East Malaysia, i will ask my engineer to go alone la. Time to grow up!

Malaysia's PM seems to be failing his people at every chance

by Michael Backman
The Age
Otcober 24, 2007

ON OCTOBER 31, Abdullah Badawi, Malaysia's Prime Minister, will have been in office for four years. Abdullah
came to office promising to fight corruption and to be a breath of fresh air. He has failed on both counts.

But he has achieved one remarkable feat none of his predecessors could: he has united most of his country's
elder statesmen, established businessmen and intellectuals.

They are united in their utter dismay at his performance, a point that many such individuals made to me on a
recent visit to Malaysia.

The despair is compounded by the near impossibility of getting rid of Abdullah.

Before 1987, anyone who wanted to challenge the president of the ruling UMNO party (and hence prime minister),
needed to get endorsements from just two divisions of UMNO. Previous prime minister Mahathir Mohamad had that
changed after his finance minister Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah challenged him for the leadership and almost won.

Would-be challengers must now acquire the endorsement of 30 per cent, or 58, of 191 divisions. This means that
the prime minister's office needs to pay off fewer than 150 division heads with government contracts and licences
to ensure their support.

Critics within UMNO are anaesthetised by patronage and sadly the Prime Minister probably thinks that he is doing a
good job because his inner circle constantly tells him he is. He is their ticket to riches, after all.

Ramadan has just ended and once again Malaysia has been treated to the spectacle of government ministers and
other officials fasting and playing the pious Muslim on the one hand and stealing from their fellow Malaysians on
the other.

Abdullah has had three chances in recent times to show that times have changed in Malaysia and to clearly assert
his authority when presented with examples of such theft.
He has blown each one.

The first was when it emerged that his Trade Minister, Rafidah Aziz, had handed out to her relatives, government
officials and former officials hundreds of lucrative licences to import cars - without any clear procedures or
transparency. A good leader would have fired Rafidah immediately. She is still there.

Another opportunity arose with revelations by the auditor-general last month of fraud and corruption in government
purchasing. Some of the more flagrant abuses were at the Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs. It had wasted
millions on purchases such as paying 224 ringgit ($A75) for sets of screwdivers worth 40 ringgit, or 1146 ringgit for
a 160 ringgit pen set.

More seriously, the ministry's head, who had the authority to approve contracts worth less than 5 million ringgit,
was found to have approved contracts for almost 450 million ringgit. The ministry claimed that the then minister and
now Education Minister Hishammuddin Hussein had written a letter of authority for the purchases but this
disappeared during auditing. Despite all this occurring under Hishammuddin's watch, he remains in the cabinet.

The third incident relates to an ongoing scandal at the Port Klang Free Trade Zone - Port Klang is Malaysia's main
shipping port. Essentially, the port authority was forced by well-connected individuals to buy far more land than
planned for the free trade zone and at highly inflated prices, even though it could have compulsorily acquired the
land, literally saving billions.

This and development costs, and "professional fees", blew out the total cost for the zone from 1.845 billion ringgit
to 4.2 billion ringgit. It is a scam of outrageous proportions and is just the sort of thing that is turning foreign
investors off Malaysia in their droves.

Rather than make arrests, the Government is using taxpayers' funds to bail out the authority. The auditor-general
tipped off the responsible minister (a term I use loosely) - Chan Kong Choy, the Transport Minister - about the
problems, as did a foreign partner in the zone, but Chan ignored the warning. Has Abdullah fired Chan? Of course
not. Has the previous minister Ling Liong Sik been questioned by the police? Of course not.

These three instances were good opportunities for Abdullah to show his ministers who is boss. Well, he certainly
did that.

One might ask what on earth the Finance Minister has been doing in the face of all this waste and theft. Or,
indeed, even who is the Finance Minister? Extraordinarily, it is Abdullah. In a break with tradition, he occupies that
post as well as being Prime Minister. The firings should start with him.

After all, it's not as if Malaysia has a shortfall of ministers. On the contrary, Malaysia has no fewer than 72 ministers
and deputy ministers at the federal level. By way of comparison, Australia has 32 ministers and assistant ministers.
Is the quality of public administration in Malaysia more than twice as good as in Australia? Let the facts speak for

Malaysia is truly at a cross-roads. It has many good people with great potential but it is slipping beneath the waves
of mediocrity, weighed down by officials intent on an orgy of plunder while the ship's captain stands idly by.

The process of government needs to be dramatically and urgently overhauled. Malaysia needs a dynamic, strong
visionary leader who is up to the task. Instead, it has Abdullah Badawi.


General Erection & General Election

Even before Pak Lah got the ilham to announce when is the 12th General Election, we, Rakyat that living in Malaysia already felt the General Erection and it has been erected for months, not even has the intention to ......

Last week, a 2kg pack of Milo sell at RM33 ++ in I - Department store. Initially i tought that Dept Store always sell at high price as what we always think. Blardy hell, until i went to shop at J - Dept Store last Saturday, the value buy 2kg Milo sell at ~ RM29. Purchase with Purchase sell at RM 23.90.

Nia mah, even milk powder for my son also increase ~RM 10 / 1.8kg tin. Previously i can buy at RM 65/tin, now J Dept Store sell at ~RM 75/tin. 700g Refil pack increase to RM29.90 (value buy) compared to ~RM 24.90 previously. For this item, I - Dept Store selling cheap, i am still able to buy it at RM 65.99 (1.8 kg tin) last week. Thinking of sapu another 1 tin for this month.

Flour increase 60c in a month (October). As to sustain the Roti Canai & bread business, all the price transfer to end users like us
. Roti Canai in Penang increase 20c to 80c per piece, mee goreng up 30c to RM3.80. All roti up from 20c to more than RM1. CPO (Crude Palm Oil) hit RM 2900/mt last week trading for Jan 2008. All the millers laughing to bank now, heard that they are getting 6 months bonus due to ever long lasting Erection of CPO. But, how about us?

Petroleum per barrel hit USD 96 last week, another fear factor that going to scare us, but we still have few weeks time before we feel the heat. It will only happen after General Election (then follow by another round General Erection). Be Prepare (Scout Motto) for dearer cooking gas and subsequently more expensive dinner when you having it outside. Start 1st January 2008, another Erection going to hit all of us. Eight (8) blardy toll going to increase. PLUS is one of them, Penang Bridge is another one. These money-earning-like-hell companies keep on robbing money from us. For example, PLUS expand the road from 2 lanes to 3 lanes at Ipoh - Rawang, Senawang - Melaka, and extending thier toll colection beyond 2038. Who is the contructor for the expansion plan? One of the UEM subsidiary, UEM Construction. So they earn one part in the construction and transfer the cost to road users by extending the toll collection. Who carry out the road maintenance? Propel, another subsidiary of UEM. This is all the Left Pocket to right Pocket story, and we, road users bear the cost until anak cucu kita.

Some people blame Global Warming that cause the food price shoot up. Milk production decrease resulting all dairy products price increase. Wheat flour production decrease resulting flour price increase like no body business. But who should blame to?

I am still waiting for
Dept of Statistics Malaysia to release its latest Consumer Price Index. September index increase 2% compared to previous year September. I can feel that my money is shrinking, very fast! But some con-man are gaining big time and enjoying it!

September Index:
Vegetables 6.7 %
Food Products n.e.c. 3.5%
Fish & Seafood 3.3 %
Milk, Cheese & Eggs 3.0 %
Meat 2.5 %
Rice, Bread & Other Cereals 1.4 %
Oils and Fats 1.2 %
Sugar, Jam, Honey, Chocolate & Confectionery 0.9 %
Fruits 0.6 %

No more LIVE telecast

Last year Live telecast on astro caused many dissatisfaction among non-bumi, with some idiot waving the keris, some even asked when to use that keris.

Quote TheSun through Malaysia Today:

"In addressing Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who is also Umno Youth chief, Hashim was reported to have said: "Datuk Hisham has unsheathed his keris, waved his keris, kissed his keris. We want to ask Datuk Hisham, when is he going to use it?"

Since this month is the hottest month for General Election, therefore NO MORE LIVE TELECAST for this year UMNO General Assembly. Why, because Ketua Pemuda UMNO already said that he will continue waving the keris.

Quote from Thestar:
"TELUK INTAN: The opening and closing speeches by Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the party's general assembly will only be aired live by RTM.
Deputy Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said only RTM was given the rights to carry the live broadcasts on Nov 7 and 9.

He said the speeches of other leaders and the debates would be broadcast during the news. He said the Umno supreme council decided not to grant Astro the right to carry a live telecast like last year. – Bernama "

If UMNO do it LIVE, you think they will get more support from non-bumi? Sorry lah, too late lah.

Gua Musang - Kuala Krai

Welcome to Kelantan in Peace
Gua Musang
Gua Musang old town
Main road of Gua Musang
Some chinese shops
New road linking Gua Musang to Cameron Highland

Area near Lojing

Total destroy

Projek Diraja Kelantan

Flowers, Development vs Environment

Border Kelantan - Pahang

Budak-budak orang asli living at the border

Farms at Cameron Highland

What can i say about the trip to Gua Musang, Kelantan?


A peacuful & small town. I believe you can live 10 years longer in Kelantan compared to KL. Just one problem for me, i can't understand their Bahasa Malaysia, masalah sikit ni. I will come back to Kelantan for another trip soon, to work and to get back my Hush Puppy shirt that i left in Fully Inn (Hotel).

Actually, Kelantan is not that scary of what we always heard from & read from newspaper, News, etc. I believe it is all the propaganda being carried out by certain party who try to create a fear factor for non-bumi. I saw the non-bumi live there happily, work there happily, everyone is living in harmony. I fell 10x safer walking in Gua Musang compared to KL/JB. Maybe i should walk also in Kota Bharu in order to give further comment.

We started our journey from KL office, using KL - Karak highway, exit at Bentong, going toward Raub, then Kuala Lipis and past through Merapoh, crossed Pahang - Kelantan border and reach Gua Musang. Total time requried is 5 hours including lunch break.

Rest for a while and had a walk around the town and discovered that there are quite a lot of chinese and indian living in Gua Musang. Yes, Shin (i think is Shiok Shin) is right, it is a very small town.

Then we drove further 70km toward Kuala Krai to the palm oil mill to have a look before the presentation for next day morning. From here, it is ust another 120km ++ to Kota Bharu.

After we finished our work, we used new road that link Gua Musang and Cameron Highland. Nice scenery, cool weather. On the way, we saw a lot of camp sites for logging, whether illegal or legal, i have no idea. However, when approaching Cameron Highland, we noticed a lot of forest has been cleared for planting Flowers. No proper planning!

From Cameron Highland, we used Cameron Highlang - Simpang Pulai road instead of Cameron - Tapah road. I bought some corn that damn expensive - RM10 for 4, called Jagung Susu, damn sweet. Bought some "dong chong chow" as well, carrot, vege and tomato.

If not my "broken" knee, i will organize a cycling trip. There are many options you can choose from.

1. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Kuala Lipis - Gua Musang (~ 300 km) (using bus to go back KL)
2. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Fraser Hill - KL
3. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Kuala Lipis - Gua Musang - Jeli - Grik - PG
4. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Kuala Lipis - Gua Musang - Kota Bharu - Jeli - Grik - PG
5. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Kuala Lipis - Gua Musang - Cameron Highlang - Tapah - KL
6. KL - Gombak - Bentong - Raub - Kuala Lipis - Gua Musang - Cameron Highland - Sipang Pulai - Ipoh
7. PG - Grik - Jeli - Kota Bharu - Gua Musang - Cameron Highland - Simpang Pulai - Taiping - PG
8. PG - Grik - Jeli - Gua Musang - Cameron Highland - Simpang Pulai - Taiping - PG
9. PG - Tai Ping - Cameron Highland - Gua Musang - Jeli - Baling - PG.

So many route you can plan with, nice scenry, unpolluted area, not many car at most of the road...... Wait till my knee operation and fully recover next year.
