THE END OF MELAYUS?

Those who believe that Malaysia is better off having non-Malays govern it (because they are incorruptible and honest) need to check their brains and see if it is still in their skulls.
Even if the ‘new’ set of Malays take over, we all know who runs the country right? The so-called new Malay PM in this scenario will just be a mere puppet who will loyally rubber stamp whatever those persons (who really wield the power) want them to.
Who are these people? They are the ones who want to rid Malaysia of the Bumiputera status, the Malay reserve lands, the declaration that Malaysia has an official religion which is Islam, the monarchy and anything else that UMNO has set in place since independence. All these things do not benefit Malaysia in their minds.
Of course, the new cabinet will also have more non-Malays than Malays and they will also demand a non-Malay person as a powerful deputy PM.
Bahasa Malaysia, the language, will be given an ‘official’ language status but other languages will be allowed too for official correspondence with the government and in the end BM will be shunned. English will be the lingua franca within ten years. There might even be the possibility of Singapore rejoining Malaysia thus the number of Parliamentary seats will swing forever in their favour thus ending Malay governance until the end of time.
But this is what the urban Malays seem to want and quite a chunk of rural Malays who think the Malays will still rule the country with the Rocket people in power. This naive mentality is quite cute. It’s the kind of mentality that most Malays in Singapore have adopted. They believe that after 50 years of independence from Malaysia, the Malays in Singapore are on par with their fellow Singaporeans and that they are equal in the eyes of the government and law. That’s obvious what since their next President will be a Malay because other candidates who aren’t Malay are not allowed to nominate themselves to be the island’s decorative Head of State. The Malays can only get positions only if they allow you to and that in the end, the position is non-executive nor functional.
This is the Malaysia that you all seek where the Malays will end up living in the shrinking villages of their childhood whilst the urban centres are for the others including urban Malays who would have sold their souls, their culture, their language, their peoples, their religion, their land, in the pursuit of the almighty cash.

FITNAH et al DURING RAMADHAN

I really did not want to post anything during this month. But because the usual suspects from the Opposition has decided to shove decorum up the yahoo, and continue to spill nonsense, lies and rubbish, I said why not. At least some people can decide for themselves whether these idiots are just lying through their teeth to topple the government or that they actually believe in these lies themselves. Either way, their credibility is shot.
Of course, what has happened is that this chaotic entity in the US called the Department of Justice (DOJ) is strangely bringing up the so called Kleptocracy Act against some individuals in the US and that they are trying to seize more that a billion US dollars of property supposedly acquired with money stolen from IMDB. If and when they succeed, they want to return these monies to the Malaysian people. Firstly, as far as we now legally, there is no money that has been lost from ImDB. Where these individuals found the money to acquire wealth in the US is not know but from what I know, they are already filthy rich buggers well before they got embroiled in the IMdB controversy.
IMdB has publicly announced that all the money they are managing are all accounted for, so what is this money that the DoJ claims to want to get back for Malaysia? And who are these Malaysian people that they want to return the money to? Let’s say they manage to recoup this strange accounting mumbo jumbo money that they said was stolen from the citizens of Malaysia by a government entity. Let’s just say lah. For the sake of saying. Then they return the money to whom? The government that they say is crooked? Or to the citizens via channels that only they seem to know? Or maybe to one of the opposition parties that they deem honest and clean?
Anyway, all these chatter on social media about ImdB lah, the mysterious pink diamond lah, and whatever else….it all looks fishy to all of us. We know what the US government is capable of when they want an incumbent government to fall – see Syria, Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia and Iraq to mention just a few. You might want to add Greece, Turkey, Ukraine too.
The funny thing is that there are so many Malaysians, or so-called Malaysians who are gullible and willing to lap all this up and regurgitate it all out again to the people in order to confuse Malaysians and turn the rakyat against the government, the leadership and at times even our Monarchy.
The rakyat should really not take anything at face value and check out the facts. Listen to Lim Sian See, a non Malay who defends and attacks the oppositions non stop stream of lies by putting forth facts and figures that CANNOT be disputed. Yet somehow the Opposition seem to have some powerful mojo or mumbo jumbo that blind the rakyat to all these facts. On this score, they are quite effective. I won’t say much about their governance lah…cause personally, they spend more time politicking and wheeling and dealing to actually govern their states for the sake of ALL citizens. Even the unfortunate and needless death of Nhaveen was politicised by them and blamed on the BN government. Every that is bad – blame BN. That’s their credo. That’s their strategy. That is the only way they can try to wrest the government from the people. Forget that our stock market is bullish and performing well. Forget that trade numbers are positive. Forget that FGV has NOT lost money at all as a trading company, and all the noise was because the stock value of FGV has gone down. And we all know that stock value can be manipulated by powerful external business entities.
There’s so much shit going around that the stink sticks to these people who spout them.
But then again, I might be lying through my teeth.

The King Arthur you don’t know of.

Guy Ritchie’s latest movie King Arthur is another big yawnfest. Whilst The Man From UNCLE could have been better with a bit more action pieces, his reworking of the King Arthur legend is a total fuck up. You see a bit of the Jedi lore and a lot of the Lord of the Rings ¬†scattered about in his retelling of Camelot.

What is missing is Lancelot, Guinevere and Merlin. What is missing is a lot of coherency in the story telling. And to socially update the lore by turning Sir Beldevere into a black guy seems totally unnecessary.

Of course, King Arthur suffered from PS4 syndrome. The final battle between Arthur and Voltegen or Modred or whoever the heck he is looks like it is straight out of the Playstation console.

Arthur, this year’s biggest summer casualty so far. (Haven’t seen Baywatch yet)

Then again, I may be lying.

King Arthur the flop.

HE WHO KNOWS EVERYTHING

Don’t you hate doing business with someone who knows everything? Especially those who hire experts and consultants and then continue to control and run everything as if they know it all. Then why waste money hiring experts and consultants? You seem to know everything. You don’t want to hear what these experts have to say, and when you do let them open their mouths two things happen…you cut short their opinions or statements or you disagree completely and force them to agree with what you actually wanted to happen or buy.

These know it alls can be so infuriating. To friends and colleagues they praise these experts and consultants telling them that they are the best in the field. Yet, once these experts and consultants are hired, completely ignore all advise and opinions. They (the experts and consultants) are there merely for decoration.

Worse thing is that these experts and consultants know that this guy is talking through his a-hole. He must have read somewhere or heard somewhere these information and coupled with these couple of information, he has suddenly turned into an expert on the subject at hand.

Actually the reason he hires all these experts and consultants is that he actually wants them to agree with his brilliant ideas and suggestions. Which is fine, but the problem is when things go wrong with anything, he blames the experts and consultants for not pointing the problem out to him earlier.

You can never win with this guy.

And he gets away with it because i) he is a successful man ii) people are too scared to point out the obvious.

But then again, I may be bullshitting y’all.
