New Cabinet Line Up

A total of 28 ministers and 40 deputy ministers. Only one less compared to 2008 line up? Don't expect too much, i can think of 2 reasons:

1. There are 13 component parties under BN. Every head of the parties not include the head of the youth and woman wing need to be pleased. How lah? Luckily SUPP quit from BN, else ...

2. Under mini budget recently tabled by Najib, government going to employ more government servants (63,000). What happen if Najib merging the ministries (higher education & Education for example & others), instead of hiring more people, end up you got excess man power.

Our Potential Back Door Ministers

News from MalaysiaKini: 六人宣誓出任上议员为入阁铺路:子根、美芬、莎丽扎、阿旺上榜

Sources said the six are Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Dr Koh Tsu Koon, Chew Mei Fun, Awang Adek Hussin, Jamil Khir Baharom and Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin.

Shahrizat is the Umno Wanita chief and was the women, family and community development minister before losing her Lembah Pantai MP seat in the last general election.

And Chew was Shahrizat's deputy at the ministry before she too lost her Petaling Jaya Utara seat. She is the MCA women's wing head.

Koh is the Gerakan president and he too was defeated in the last general election. He was former chief minister of Penang.

Awang Adek was a former deputy governor of Bank Negara before being named as a deputy finance minister. He is alsa a former Kelantan Umno deputy chief. He also lost in the last general election.

Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin is a businessman and an Umno leader from Federal Territory.

Jamil Khir Baharom is the director of Religious Corp of the Malaysian Armed Forces.

Death Sentence for Altantuya Case

Policemen Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar were sentenced to death by the High Court for murdering Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu and those who ordered she to be killed is getting away....... You think these 2 guys so free and nothing to do and killed her, then exploded her with C4?

Are these guys the scapegoats of the untold story that full of worms? Only GOD knows then.

Back Door Ministers?

It seems like a lot of back door ministers going to be appointed for the new "slimmer" cabinet. It does not matter if you can't win in General Election or By-Election, as long as you are the President or Head of Youth or Woman Wing of either one of the 13 component parties in BN, you can become Minister.

While MCA is hoping for a deputy PM 1 from Najib, maybe thier wish not going to be granted instead their quota for 4 ministers and 6 deputy ministers might be reduced to 3 ministers & 4 deputy ministers.

All are rumours lah, but in Malaysia rumours always turn into truth! We shall wait and see at 3pm today.

Anyway, you all know what, we are living in the Land of Boleh! There is nothing impossible in the mind of Malaysian! We are BOLEHMAN living in BOLEHLAND!

Think ......

PAS and PKR of Bukit Selambau won the by-election with bigger majority, however lost Batang Ai also with bigger majority.

People still maintain the same trend - rejecting BN, especially from non-malay in West Malaysia.

F1 Sepang 2009: Half the Points

Another terrible end of F1 race in Sepang, Malaysia with only 31 laps completed out of 56. Not even reached the minimum 75% laps for full points. With the race started so late in 5pm compared to 3pm for the past years, by 6.30pm, it was dark and almost impossible to continue the race till 7pm. It is not night race mah. So you find the weird points of 0.5 in this 2009 seson.

The rain only started after 1 hr of race, but it became so heavy that the race has to stopped and safety car was employed. With Button went for 4 pits stop, changing the type from slick into itermediate into wet, and he still managed to get P1. Heifeild of BMW was lucky with only one pits stop and end up P2. Glock of Toyota was P3.

Again this race, Ferrari gains no points, both in constructor and championship points. Mclaren only has one points after 2 races. Another dissapointed 2009 season which saw supposed stronggest teams losing the race. Amazingly Button from Brawn (ex-Honda) won P1 for consercutive race, his 3rd in his carrier.

This year also saw PM Najib presented the trophy, his 1st time as PM of Malaysia.

Till then, wait for next race in China, 19 April 2009.

峇都丁宜马斯海滨广场沦为死城 冀州政府打救

This is the place (Komplex Pantai Mas) i used to lepak since Standard 2 till Upper 6 before i came to UPM to further my study. My dad started to do his hawker business there since i was born in 1976, before that he did his biz on the trishaw-typed of vehicle.

The business was damn good last time that you have to work like a cow and i was very afraid of Hari Raya as the malay stall will close and we have to open, as we got to work from morning 8am till 8pm during this festive season. But now, you don't even can find the mat salleh that used to drink there, yam seng. I think now only left the local beach boys. Besides, adjacent hotels not allow thier staffs to have lunch outside (have to eat at the hotel canteen, anyway FOC). Besides hawker stalls, there are also other shops selling sourvenior, shirts, beach related items, etc. Things have changed a lot. But the "kam ching" is still there, and i will go back to the beach each time i am back to Batu Ferringhi. To feel the "sea wind", to see the waves, to touch the sands and of course to see the kwai Lor and the ka mui...... Still this is my hometown what.

Some how, the facilities need to be upgraded if Penang is so serious in tourism as the source of income for Penang especially Batu Ferringhi folks. The whole area is definitely rely on the tourists, nothing else! It is the bread and butter matter for the Foreigner's Rock-ers (The meaning of Batu Ferringhi).

二零零九年四月三日 凌晨十二时四十五分

(槟城2日讯)同是由政府部门经营的峇都丁宜两大海滨广场,却出现不平衡发展。位于文雅酒店旁的黄昏湾广场(Komplex Bayu Senja),日间如常营业,反观,位于金沙酒店旁的马斯海滨广场(Komplex Pantai Mas)则无人问津,沦为“死城”。






业者吁市局 规划发展该广场











Balik Mengundi

Still remeber the day we celebrated the victory from the north to the south, from the west to the east? The touching moment? I believe we can celebrate it again this coming 7th April 2009 at night. Though this time i will not celebrate with the crowds and the parties leaders, still i will celebrate infront of my TV with friend. We can make a change!

God Save Malaysia

Another 9 hr, the RAHMAN legend will be completed with Najib become 6th PM of Malaysia. And also this day, Friday, will be marked as black friday even though it is not 13 Friday. Never before there is some one with so many "news" become Malaysia PM.

I just wonder what is gonna happen when our next PM goes for a Summit Meeting and meet the head of Mongolia government. Will the Mongolia PM ask Najib, "Where is my Mongolian Beauty and the commission that she supposed to get, she supposed to pay tax lah?"

And also our next PM should never ever step on the soil of France, as he is very famous in that country.

Anyway, everything is fixed. He is Malaysia's 6th PM. Just accept the truth and live with it, and end with it as well. The RAHMAN legend shall end in UMNO! We shall put our hope in Malaysia's 7th PM, does not matter is who as long as not from UMNO!
