There are just too many cases cropping up here and there and then quickly made to disappear into the labyrinth of official government buffoonery.
Criminals who get exposed are so often whitewashed and left to roam free. Witnesses's testimonies never see the light of day or are ruled irrelevant.
Visual proofs and evidences are denied authenticity and dubious tribunals are set up without real power to call up and question anybody who's implicated in the exposes.
Every Ahmad, Ah Seng and Samy in power act as if they are beyond reproach and are as clean as a bloody whistle!
Things are not just the same since Mahathir stepped down. At least, back then, the Father of Modernization kicked ass and we had one main target to vent our frustrations upon!
With Abdullah Badawi , Malaysians are sort of perplexed as to how to deal with this fumbling fella?
There's just so many things that he does and doesn't do that sort of leaves Malaysians in a political enigma.
Whatever it is, Malaysians are simply too pissed off with such a inconsistent administration that is more smoke than fire!
We have more pressing things to fight for than to be lulled into a false sense of national achievement such as the recent sending into space of a Malaysian glamorized as a bloody astronaut!
What good is that going to do for the nation's 26 million Malaysians?
The Malaysian Judiciary is no longer respected and even the highest judge in the country is now being viewed with skepticism by the people and the nation's security forces are riddled with graft and abuses of power.
We just need to take a step back and see things in a clearer perspective.
YM Raja Petra sms'd me earlier this morning informing me of the 'explosive press conference' by Dato' Ramli Yusof, the controversial Director of the PDRM's Commercial Crime division where he admits to be the RM27 million police officer alleged to being investigated by the ACA.
Somehow, my gut feeling told me that I should stay off from attending the press conference because frankly speaking as a blogger, I know we won't be allowed to attend the event.
Just now, I came home from the city and saw the Malaysiakini report saying that the Director chased them out of the press conference and he was also asking whether Malaysia Today was present in order to chase them out too?
So, no thank you to listening to another senior official spewing his words out that to me neither enriches me or is of value to my concern!
All such persons will eventually be judged by the Supreme Judge of us all in the hereafter, no matter who the bloody hell they are!
As for me, I hope that Malaysians reading this will learn about the real deal affecting us and our future and learn to sift through the bullshit that the ministry of Propaganda and the clowns in officialdom are crapping regularly onto the nation's population!
It's not a mirage anymore. You can see through the whole 'sandiwara' and know who's telling the truth and who's trying to bullshit their way through the rhetoric of 'Cemerlang, Gemilang and Terbilang'!
Come the next GE, vote these clowns out! That is if you value the rights that you have failing which just keep on returning those who will sell us out to fill their own pockets!

First and foremost, my condolences to the families of the two recently killed on duty, policemen
Lance Corporal J.Jaya Balan from the Gombak Police Narcotics Division and Selangor Police Contingent Headquarters Lance Corporal M.Alagesan.
Chances are that they would still be alive today had they been fitted with bulletproof vests by their police department before going out on the mission.
But unfortunately, this necessity for supplying bulletproof vests is not the main priority for our Malaysian Government.
According to the report in Utusan Malaysia here, the Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Musa Hassan says that the PDRM has no funds to purchase enough bulletproof vests for each and every policeman who goes out on duty and such limited vests are only given to officers and policemen who carry out dangerous missions.
Weren't Lance Corporals Jaya Balan and Alagesan on such deadly missions? Were their life's not important to be protected and preserved by the PDRM?
Wasn't the government so flushed with cash that they could afford to send a doctor cum part time model on a RM95,000,000.00 space trip recently?
I am not a bloody accountant but still some simple calculations based on commonsense can deduce that that space mission's cost if converted to the purchase of the much needed bulletproof vests that cost averaging RM3000<> USD$700 a piece can buy the PDRM 31,666 bulletproof vests! Click here for the info relating to the above featured vest.
Click here to check for yourselves the range of products and costs of the bulletproof vests manufactured by one of the major US companies. Here and here as well.
Isn't the Malaysian Government so flushed with cash that they could splurge on so many extravagant fiestas and concerts after concerts that take place so very often and broadcasted live to the entire BN hoodwinked nation?
Isn't our Malaysian Government so flushed with cash that they think nothing of spending so much money sending their officials all over the world every now and then on the slightest excuse or pretext of such trips being official trade missions?
So, I ask the Malaysian Government, what bloody hell kind of a cock and bull excuse is that they do not have the funds to buy and supply our police officers with such an important life saving body armor when going out on deadly missions?
How can they escape retribution from Allah the Almighty later on in the hereafter when they have to stand before Allah and answer for their sins of negligence and lack of responsibility over those who have died as a result of their criminal breach of trust in running this nation?
So many policemen died because some bloody idiots in political positions gave such stupid excuses not to allocate the necessary funds to purchase those badly needed bulletproof vests for the PDRM and instead do not waste a second in ego boosting space flights in the name of 'Malaysia Boleh'!
Can such a rotten team be re-elected into office by the nation in the next GE?
Don't be surprised. Malaysians have proven to be bloody stupid in returning the same bunch of crooks into power every bloody GE since they got free from the British Colonials.
I think it's in their blood to be born stupid and remain oblivious to all the shenanigans that the BN and their coalition of 'ampukings' keep dishing out to the gullible, clueless masses who just so love to pesta and fiesta as they please to kingdom come!
So, dear PDRM officers, you are on your own. Next time you go out on your crime busting missions, remember that you are out there exposed to mortal danger without protection because your government thinks it's better to waste money on space flights instead of buying you your bulletproof vests.
Funny thing though, the FRU seems very well protected from head to toe when it comes to bashing up poor civilians who have no other options than to protest against those very corrupt officials in government when those rascals go overboard in their abusing of the privileges of holding power all these 50 years since Independence.
Looks like even policemen can be bloody stupid when they know for sure what kind of corrupt officials they have been protecting all these while! Every policeman and woman knows this!
So, Malaysians, don't say that you don't know. Don't say that no one is sin free. All such excuses do not warrant us to continue living a lie and say that everything's kosher here in Malaysia!
Those policemen died for free. Blame it all on Abdullah Badawi and his cabinet of yesmen who continue to screw us all in the name of 'Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang'!
Tell it to the widows of Jaya Balan and Alagesan! Who's gonna fend for them now? The BN?

Have you been reading the relevant articles in Raja Petra Kamarudin's Malaysia-Today web portal where Malaysians just like us have been writing comments dreaming of a royal intervention to put things right in the current regime?
Have you too come to believe in such an unconceivable turnabout from the Malaysian constitutional monarchy?
You can then call yourself a hopeless romantic or a believer in fairy tales.
Why do I say so?
Well, since when has the Malay Sultans taken charge of things and asserted their royal selfs over matters as important as the wellbeing of the people or the whole federation of united Malay states which we now call Malaysia?
I don't recall such a situation ever taking place since the fall of the Sultanate of Melaka in 1511 to the Portuguese conquerers.
From the pages of history, we all know that the Malay Sultans capitulated to the foreign powers times and time again, without putting up a fight against the colonials.
If there were any resistance, it was usually from the grassroots made up of the Malay chieftains and local warriors who loved their Sultans and Malay heritage more than the Royals themselves.
This current daydream of seeing the Supreme Head of Malaysia, in the person of the Yang di Pertuan Agong having it in his majesty to take to task the current do as he pleases Prime Minister to answer for the spate of extravagant expenditures in the name of 'Malaysia Boleh' seems to me like asking for the impossible to take place.
Yang Di Pertuan Agong, the Supreme Head of Malaysia,
Al-Wathiqu Billah, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah, Sultan of Terengganu and the 13th Supreme King of Malaysia.
No doubt, that according to the Federal Constitution of Malaya then turned into Malaysia, there are certain provisions allowing the YDP Agong to exercise his authority as provided by the said constitution as follows:
Although the Constitution (Article 39) accords the Yang di-Pertuan Agong with executive authority, subject to the provisions of any federal law and of the Second Schedule of the Constitution, Parliament may by law confer executive functions on other persons.
Except as otherwise provided for by the Constitution as regards his position and authority, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong usually acts in accordance with the advice of the Cabinet or more specifically, of the Prime Minister, in the exercise of his functions. However, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is entitled to and at his request, any information concerning the government of the Federation which is available to the Cabinet.
Although the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is to act on the advice of the Cabinet or of a Minister or after consultation with or on the recommendation of any person or body of persons (other than the Cabinet), His Majesty may act in his discretion in the performance of the three following functions, that is to say:
- The appointment of a Prime Minister;
- Consent or the withholding of consent to a request for the dissolution of Parliament;
- The requisition of a meeting of the Conference of Rulers concerned solely with the privileges, position, honor and dignity of Their Royal Highnesses, and any actions at such a meeting.
The appointment of a person (a member of Parliament) as the Prime Minister is based on his ability to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the House of Representatives. The appointment of members of the Cabinet and Deputy Ministers is made on the advice of the Prime Minister.
Articles 39 and 40 of the Federal Constitution state that:
39. Executive Authority of Federation
The executive authority of the Federation shall be vested in the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and exercisable subject to the provision of any federal law and of the Second Schedule, by him or by the Cabinet or any Minister authorized by the Cabinet, but Parliament may by law confer executive functions on other persons."
40. Yang di-Pertuan Agong to act on advice :
(1) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution, or under federal law the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall act in accordance with the advice of the Cabinet or of a Minister acting under the general authority of the Cabinet, except as otherwise provided by this Constitution; but shall be entitled, at his request, to any information concerning the government which is available to the Cabinet.
(1A) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution or federal law, where the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is to act in accordance with advice, on advice, or after considering advice, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall accept and act in accordance with that advice.
(2) The Yang di-Pertuan Agong may act in his discretion in the performance of the following functions, that is to say:
- The appointment of a Prime Minister
- Consent or withhold consent of the dissolution of the Malaysian Parliament
- The Requisition of a meeting of the Conference of the Royal Malay Rulers concerned solely with the privileges, position, honor and dignity of the Royal Highnesses and any actions at such a meeting.
(3) Federal law may make provision for requiring the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to act after consultation with or on the recommendation of any person or a body of persons other then the Cabinet to exercise any of his functions other than:
functions exercisable in his discretion; and
functions with respect to the exercise of which provision is made in any other Article."
This provisions to act on their majesty's own has yet to be seen put to practice by any of our nation's Yang Di Pertuan Agong's.
Such superseding of authority by the office of the Prime Minister has given way to an emboldened approach of the subject to lord over his king in this country.
Instead of the subject in the person of the appointed Prime Minister kneeling in reverence to the authority and majesty of the Malay Sultans, the previous Prime Minister of Malaysia in the person of Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad managed to pull off an executive assault upon the office of the Yang di Pertuan Agong by removing the King's immunity from legal prosecution and the formation of a Special Court to try their Majesties for any breach of conduct and transgresses by the Malay Royalties.
Today, the Malaysian judiciary has been exposed to be not free from legal wranglings and manipulation of power and positions as witnessed by the expose of the VK Lingam-Chief Justice videotape showing a senior lawyer speaking on the phone to the 'suspected' other party on the line to be none other than the highest judge of the land and fixing up positions, judicial candidates and other wheeling and dealing that none would be privy to save for the explosive secret videotaping of such a dialog by a party who is now being hunted down by the Anti Corruption Agency to step forward and identify himself so as to authenticate the video recording to facilitate further action against the two senior judicial officials in the tape.
The problem is that there are no such provisions to date in our legal system to offer protection to whistleblowers and as such the person is scared to death of coming forward.
Anwar Ibrahim, the former Deputy Premier who was sacked unceremoniously by Tun Mahathir and thrown into prison by the justice system then has disclosed a major portion of 8 minutes footage of the 14 minutes long video as a result of realizing the dangers of exposing the actual identity of the videographer who surely will be in mortal danger once exposed without being accorded at least a Royal Commission's protection from such harm is today facing the threat of being thrown back into prison himself if he fails to surrender the full version of the said video in his possession and disclose the identity of the person who took it to the ACA by today.
From the look of things, the Malaysian people especially those of us who are concerned about the way things are being run by the present administration, aren't very happy with the rough shod manner by which the current Prime Minister and his 'diarrhea of the lip' cabinet ministers are dismissing off all complaints and grouses against the injustice being carried out in the government.
Criminals and corrupt officials are simply being acquitted and discharged on the slightest excuse and this doesn't go well with law abiding citizens and as a result, even more than 2000 lawyers of the Malaysian Bar Council members staged a 'Walk for Justice' from the Palace of Justice to the Prime Minister's Office Complex in Putrajaya recently to protest the state of affairs in the rotten Malaysian judiciary and handover a memorandum to a representative of PM Abdullah Badawi who was in the US at the time.
Memorandums and protest notes do nothing to dislodge those who seem indifferent to the unhappy demonstrators and protesting citizens of this country.
Too many cases of the guilty ones escaping prosecution has somewhat driven many citizens of Malaysia up the wall and now they are clamoring for the intervention of the Yang di Pertuan Agong to put things right!
Will His Majesty rise to the occasion and fulfill the needs and wants of the Malaysian people?
I have my doubts whether such an impossibility might actually take place and prove me wrong when and if ever His Royal Majesty, Duli Yang Maha Mulia, Yang di Pertuan Agong, Al Wathiqu Billah, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah, Sultan of Terengganu ever decides that enough is enough and finally steps in to stop the judicial rot and take charge once and for all?
At the end of the day, one might ask as to who is the King and who is the subject?
If Malaysia is to have Kings and Sultans ruling over this land, then for the sake of justice and peace, let us get rid of this current stalemate between the executive and the monarch!
Let the Yang di Pertuan Agong truly reign over us and get rid of this phony Islam Hadhari charade once and for all.
Islam has been revealed in perfection 14 centuries ago by Allah's Final Messenger to all mankind yet today we have in our midst an unscrupulous wheeling and dealing administration that thinks that all Malaysians are stupid and ought not question those ingrates about all the travesties of justice that they are pulling off at our expense!
Show up at Dataran Merdeka this 10th of November, 3.00pm and dress in yellow as a symbol of your love for the Yang di Pertuan Agong who seems to be the last hope for the future of this being taken for a ride nation by the current BN ruling airheads reaching for outer space!
Some say that if you fail to dream, you will definitely remain where you are right now, in the Malaysian quagmire of the daydreaming Abdullah Badawi 'Islam Hadhari' mirage.
I say, let's go and show our support for justice and hope that Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin will make our dreams come true...for once.
Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku!
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala protect our King. Ameen. Ya Rabbal Alameen.
Dataran Merdeka. 3.00 pm. 10th November, 2007.
Dress Code: Yellow. Spread the word and come in peace for peace!

I am sure that no one in his or her right mind would want to be in Anwar Ibrahim's shoes right now.
Why do I say so?
Well, for starters, what bloody guarantee of safety is there for the person who took the video showing senior lawyer VK Lingam fixing up the judiciary top posts?
As we all know, this nation's government has yet to reach that state of providing witnesses protection against repercussions that could well endanger the life's of the informant and his or her family and close relatives.
All that bullshit that Nazri spewed out recently about providing protection for the whistleblowers is just that.
Full of unwarranted crap that only an idiot will want to be so willing to believe and risk the personal safety of the one who shot the video.
Hell, even Altantuya Shaariibuu got blown to bits and to this date, her killers are masked from public view and squirreled in and out of court incognito.
One wonders if those 'ninja's are really the UTK chaps being hustled to and fro the lockups?
That's how the system works in Malaysia, our gone to the dogs Bolehland!
Over here in Bolehland, crooks are protected and witnesses are beaten to a pulp as what took place to Anwar Ibrahim and many others whose only crime were to stand up to the bloody corrupted ones in office and tried to expose them.
Surely Anwar Ibrahim who has had personal experience of being screwed by the law and presented with the infamous black eye by the then Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Rahim Noor, will think very seriously and look into all aspects of the consequences that his exposing the videographer's identity will have for the person.
Isn't it bloody obvious of how 'swift' the BPR is in threatening arrest of Anwar Ibrahim if he fails to kowtow to their immediate demand for the original copy of the videoclip that reveals the identity of the person who took the video.
Nothing less than a Royal Commission that guarantees the immunity of the whistleblower will be sufficient to warrant the revealing of the remainder of the full videoclip and the identity of the one who took the video.
Either way, Anwar Ibrahim and his close associates who have access to the full videoclip and know the identity of the person who took the video are being pressured and pushed into a legal corner from where there is no escape.
With the way things are known to take place in the justice system of this land, there is virtually no guarantee that instead of the crooks and corrupt ones getting punished for their scandals, it will be Anwar and the whistleblowers who will be thrown into the slammer!
No matter who calls the shots in the ACA or any other investigating authority, it is common knowledge that there will be ricocheting bullets mysteriously coming after the ones who try to seek justice here in Bolehland.
The last time Anwar had his brush with the law, he was awarded a black eye and slammed into prison for 6 bloody long years and almost died in prison due to attempted arsenic poisoning.
God knows what they have in plan for him this time around?
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala protect the righteous ones from harm and see to it that the culprits screwing up our judiciary are exposed and brought to justice...if it still works!
Hebat benar majlis sambutan Kemerdekaan Negara ke 50 baru baru ini di kediaman Imam Hadhari, dengan kehadiran segala hadirin hadirat kenamaan yang teristimewa dipersada Seri Perdana, Putrajaya.
Hal ini tidak digembar gemburkan dimedia arus perdana kerana ianya eksklusif sekali dan bukan untuk pengetahuan dan makluman rakyat jelata.
Almaklum sajalah, yang dijemput hanya bintang bintang dan insan insan terpilih dari kalangan aristokrat dan autokrat bangsawan, hartawan, jutawan, segalawan cumanya ketika itu belum di raikan sang angkasawan.
Masaalahnya bila sang Imam Hadhari bermuka muka dan bersandiwara dimata masyarakat am seolah diri itu maksum dari noda dan dosa.
Dibawanya fahaman 'Islam Hadhari' yang mencetuskan fenomena kemusykilan tentang mana satu ajaran agama sebenar dan sejati dikalangan umat Islam masa kini yang jahil tentang hakikat Ad Deenul Haqq?
Makanya harus kita berterimakasih kepada Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin yang telah sudi menerbitkan didalam laman berita alternatifnya tentang perilaku Imam Hadhari dan kuncu kuncunya di istana megah Seri Perdana bersama kaum kerabatnya, berpesta pora meraikan hari mercu tanda ke 50 tahun Kemerdekaan Malaya dari cengkaman British.
Agak agak tuan tuan semua, untuk ini kah para pejuang kemerdekaan negara kita berusaha memerdekakan tanah pusaka ini dari di jajah musuh durjana?
Nampaknya didalam ajaran Islam Hadhari, Imam Hadhari takde kena mengena dengan keperluan menegakkan syiar Islam dan kewajipan mengarahkan penutupan aurat ahlul keluarganya seperti kita semua sedia maklum dengan cara bini kedua As-Syaikh Al-Imam Hadhari dan juga puteri Imam Hadhari tampil dikhalayak bukan mahram seperti didalam gambar tak bersunting ini.
Cara puteri Imam Hadhari berkemban mesti tak ada hal punya didalam kalangan aristokrat atasan negara ini, bukan?
Sebelah tu tercongok Pengerusi Forum Halal Sedunia! Amacam? Cantik tak? Yabedu bedu!
Islam Hadhari ampunya pasal! Semua...line clear !!!
Untuk gambar gambar yang lebih sensasi , maka dipersilakan melayari laman khas laporan di- Malaysia-Today.net yang menyajikan episod episod yang tak akan disiarkan di media arus perdana kerana tembelang Imam Hadhari akan pecah dan natijahnya tak akan disenangi rakyat jelata dek kerana kepura-puraan yang disebalik slogan dan retorika kosong semata mata.
Imam Hadhari memang Boleh! Boleh apa?...Isikan sahaja ikut suka anda! Ish..ish..ish..ish!
Ni bukan cobaan lagi....malapetaka sebenarnya.....nantikan saja episod sensasi akan datang!
Gambar gambar ihsan dari Sam Soon @ Iconography Studio dan Melium Group serta majalah Hello.
No one denies the fact that the late Tunku did spearhead the seeking of Independence for this nation from continuous colonialization by the British Empire.
He may not have been perfect in his character as being known to be fond of horse racing and other vices but still, one must pay respect to the memory of the late Tunku as being amongst those who have done so much for this nation.
Tunku was also responsible for cutting off Singapore from our federation but then circumstances back then forced him to do that. Lee Kuan Yew was asking exactly what Lim Kit Siang and company are seeking for - the abolishment of Malay rights, which will render them powerless in Malaysia.
Tun Abdul Razak who took over from Tunku Abdul Rahman was known as Bapa Pembangunan @ Father of Development.
He saw to it that Malaysia slowly transformed from being a backward agricultural based young nation to be one where development has been taking place , changing our country into a better place to live.
He was known to be a thrifty Prime Minister and lived a frugal life and not known to be extravagant in his lifestyle even though he could if he had wanted to splurge on all the fine things in life.
Tun Abdul Razak deserves to be remembered for his bringing development to the rural areas and for setting into place the nation's major infrastructures and helping the people to seek a reasonable living.
Then came Tun Hussein Onn, who became Malaysia's 3rd Prime Minister when Tun Razak passed away in London during treatment.
Tun Hussein Onn is known as Bapa Perpaduan @ Father of Unity amongst Malaysians.
Tun Hussein is not known for any hanky panky in his administration and there was not much scandals during his rule over Malaysia.
He is related to UMNO's founder , Dato Onn bin Jaafar and is now being represented by his son, Dato Seri Hishamudin Tun Hussein Onn, who has been appointed as the Education Minister of Malaysia.
Seems like dynasties do occur in our times. Well, it's unavoidable.
Our fourth Prime Minister and the longest serving one is the legendary kick ass Prime Minister who put this nation on the map by his steering the country to be one of the world's fastest growing nation as far as its economy is concerned.
Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad is known as Bapa Pemodenan @ Father of Modernization.
During his 22 long years of being the ruler of this country, he brought forth Malaysia to be amongst Asia's most dynamic nation and turned this country into the dynamo it is today.
He may be remembered as the most autocratic ruler who ever became this nation's Prime Minister and to this date he continues to speak out against the West and Israel.
He brought prosperity to the nation and has strengthened the Malays position in government especially UMNO which continues to be the key player in Malaysia's coalition BN government.
After Mahathir's time, comes the most sickening chap who has splurged like its nobody's business as far as the taxpayers money is concerned.
Behold, the couldn't care less , rhetoric spewing, spend as you please Prime squanderer of them all, the one and only Imam Hadhari a.k.a Abdullah Badawi, whom I label as Bapa Pembaziran @ Father of Extravaganza!
Yes, this is the most fitting title for one who thinks nothing of burning RM95,000,000.00 of taxpayers money to send to space a doctor under the guise of being an astronaut when in reality this nation has much more better things to spend so much of that now gone to waste precious funds just to feed his enormous ego and his ass kissing cabinet who fawn over him as if he is this nation's deliverer when in fact he is this nation's worst premier for all time.
Don't you agree?

Learn about the person of our Last Messenger as described by some of the prominent American Scholars, some of them Muslim, some of them yet to be but eminent scholars who have studied about Islam and the character of God Almighty's Greatest Messenger and share here with what they think of Mankind's Greatest Prophet and Saviour.
It's not fitting for Mankind to remain ignorant about the person of the Holiest of God's Prophets and Messengers, Muhammad the son of Abdullah, May Peace be upon his soul, the Mercy of Allah for all mankind.
In this documentary, the American scholars share with us what they have learned about Muhammad, the Unlettered Prophet who united all of Arabia and subsequently, 1.6 billion of mankind to worship Allah the Almighty, God Most Merciful, Most High.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala bless them all with His Guidance and Mercy. Ameen.
Being the Final Messenger of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, God Almighty, to all Mankind, the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, was the very symbol of Compassion towards all of Allah's Creation.
The knowledge of learning about the person of Allah's Final Messenger, is not known to all of us but rather to those amongst us who take the time and trouble to seek such truth about the one who was sent to deliver us from our ignorance and lead us to salvation and a better end.
Many amongst us are obstinate and recalcitrant in our ways in choosing to deny the prophethood of Muhammad ibni Abdullah, the unlettered prophet and final messenger of God, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for the sheer reason that we nurture deep within our self's a deep rooted feeling of ego that refuses to listen to reason and accept that whatever we are enjoying right now in our temporal life's here on Earth will soon pass and that each of us will return to the judgment of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and that we too will be judged by Him on all that we have done in our life.
It's not easy for many to come to terms with this reality and we refuse to see the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam for what he truly is and do not want to know more about him, who suffered so much so that we may live in peace and salvation, in this temporary plane of existence amidst so many trials and challenges of living in the Last Ages of Mankind, on our own save for the presence of the Last Testament of Allah SWT as our Guidance and his numerous Hadiths as an example of how to live our life's as submitting Muslims?
It is incumbent upon those of us who can think and rationalize to seek and learn knowledge of our Last Prophet of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, our true guide to God's love and Mercies.
May Allah SWT bless us all with His Taufik and Hidayah. Ameen.

Photo sourced from Utusan Malaysia Online.
I refer to the bomb attack and massacre of hundreds of people in Pakistan by persons said to be from Al-Qaeda or any other group who are opposed to Benazir Bhutto's return to Pakistan from political exile recently.
Which Quranic verse or hadith have these idiots referred to warranting their killing of innocent civilians in their pursuit of their murderous campaign of terror upon society?
What kind of jihad is this when you go and kill mukmins or even kaffirs who have done you no wrong?
It is criminal acts such as these which scapegoat Islam and the Muslim ummah for the cockeyed objectives of cowards who hide from their 'enemies' whilst stupid, brainwashed nincompoops go out and kill themselves in the name of this struggle and that for nothing!
Whoever is responsible for all these terrorist acts surely are so bloody stupid and ill advised as to what is 'Haqq' and what is 'Batil'!
Islam stands for peace. The very word 'Assalam' means peace and safety no matter how one interprets it.
Which mazhab or school of thought do these 'Khawarij' follow that they have gone so wrong in fighting for the faith that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala sent down to the entire mankind as a source of salvation instead of the 'abomination' that these murderers have made it out to be?
No matter that you do not like both Musharraf and Benazir, no where in Islam does it warrant you to go kill others in the cause of your misconstrued acts that you deem it to be 'jihad'!
Those who kill and harm others for no valid reasons only condemn themselves to the hellfire!
Not one iota of good comes out of taking the life's of innocent beings as what has been taking place in the name of the true faith of Islam.
May the perpetrators burn in hell no matter who they are for such massacring of human beings!

Lately, Malaysians have been subjected to several eye opening situations where the fundamental rights of the citizens have been bulldozed aside by those who were elected to serve the people in the first place.
Even after many cases of abuses and corruption were brought to the fore by several exposes, the authorities simply pooh poohed them away as if those culprits were immune to legal repercussions just because the criminals had connections to the ruling BN government.
It is for these reasons that the BERSIH coalition for a fair and free elections is calling for a peaceful gathering at the Dataran Merdeka starting at 3.00pm this 10th of November, 2007.
If you want to be part of the Malaysian people's gathering calling for the BN government to conduct the coming general elections in a free and fair manner, do turn up at the historical grounds of Dataran Merdeka to show your support!
Remember, the future of Malaysia is at stake and it is important for each concerned citizen to make his or her stand. Come join us in a peaceful gathering of solidarity with those who are all for justice and fair elections.
Malaysians need to rally behind BERSIH or remain shackled and robbed of our rights to a fair government, that is for the people and by the people!
It's time for us to make a stand. Justice, fair government and accountability.
This is what we seek!
I stopped over at my family's restaurant in Bayan Lepas during my Hari Raya trip recently.
My late stepfather A.Moosa had opened this restaurant way back in the 1960s when I was just 2 years old and I remember being with my mom and my four younger siblings as the years went by.
Times have changed and so has our family restaurant. My two younger brothers, Omar Khan and Nasirudin are now running the business which has been renamed as 'CARGAS CAFE'!
These two brilliant chefs have turned my late stepfather's business into a roaring success and have even been featured in the Star's Sunday Metro 13th May, 2007 edition here.
I am proud to see my two brothers successfully expand their business to this stage and how they have progressed in the food business.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala grant them both everlasting success and watch over them and their families. Ameen.
It's so pleasing to see one's flesh and blood come to this fantastic level of achievement and their being featured in our nation's top newspaper for their culinary skills.
Bravo Omar and Din for your success in coming up with your mouth watering, delicious finger licking scrumptious 'CARGAS CAFE' 'Killer Fried Chicken and the best tasting stingray fish curries this side of Bayan Lepas!
Din was busy with his cooking work when I stopped over for my Hari Raya get together with my brother and I was simply amazed to see my kid brother being the big boss there and have so many workers busy helping him out at the kitchen!
Omar and Din had extended the restaurant to such a stage that they had bought over the next door sundry shop and expanded the business successfully together. Alhamdulillah!
I saw several Chinese customers with plates of white rice heading over to the kitchen to intercept the 'Killer Fried Chicken' of CARGAS CAFE as the counters upfront were fast running out of the famous fare that had the Sunday Metro of the Star newspaper feature them in their 13th May, 2007 edition.
I am so happy for my two brothers and wish them well. If you are living in Penang, go and try the best tasting delicious fried chicken and stingray fish curries you have ever tasted at CARGAS CAFE! You will surely become a fan!
Customers queuing up for their food! They don't mind following the queue because when they reach the Cargas Foods, it will be well worth their time!!!
Feel free to contact my two successful brothers above if you wish to hold your feasts there!
CARGAS CAFE! Simply Diff'rnt! As they saying goes, you won't know it till you taste it yourself!
Go for the best culinary experience you can taste if you are ever in Bayan Lepas!
Check out what some of Cargas Cafe regular customers are saying about the food there? Famous Chris; Nick Chan ; Penang Travel Tips ; Houliao Avenue ; Gostan Sikit ; Our Journey ; Menarik Malaysia ; NTSocialism ; and many others. Too many to be listed here. Thanks to everyone!

We left for Penang just after midnight on the eve of Hari Raya as a last minute decision. We had first thought of spending Hari Raya at our home here in KL but then those Hari Raya blues got to us and changed our minds about winging it here.
So, just as has been our norm, we decided to follow our hearts and go for it. We left KL at 12.30am and after a series of stops to rest and sleep intermittently at the main PLUS Highway R&R's, we reached Penang at 7.10am on Hari Raya morning, safely.
Along the journey home, we saw several reckless ones zoom past us at breakneck speeds, totally oblivious to all safety rules and etiquette of good driving. I think that such kinds of menace on our highways will always be there till kingdom come. Many will end up obliterated as roadkill and statistics that will continue to haunt us forever.
Anyway, thanks be to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, me and my spouse got to reach my niece's home in Telok Kumbar safely and after a shower and slight breakfast, I managed to perform the Aidilfitri Sunat prayers with my nephew in law Azmir and my grandnephew Aiman at the Masjid Jamek Sg.Batu Teluk Kumbar in time.
After prayers, we gathered for a hearty breakfast of delicious Penang fare and our customary Aidilfitri forgive and forget 'salam-salaman' between us family members, we posed for a few snapshots in commemoration of the festive day of successfully completing our month long fast in Ramadan.
We then went visiting my sister in Kg.Binjai, Bayan Lepas and after that to Sg.Dua, near USM.
After Sg.Dua, we proceeded to another family member's home in Medan Tengku, East Jelutong, besides my kampong in Jalan Kota Giam.
My son, Muhammad Zikri came to see me at my elder sister's place in Medan Tengku and after the usual Hari Raya customary greetings and 'Duit Raya' offering from me to him, had some Raya special food prepared by my sis and posed for this photo with me.
Being a teenager, naturally, he had plans to join his friends in their Raya outings and later left same time with me as I headed to other family member's homes. I bade him farewell and wish him the best in his undertakings.
He's a good son and he has my blessings to be the best that he wants to be especially in his studies and business ventures. He's running a food business with his partner there in Penang awaiting his recommencement with his studies in a private college in Business IT.
Development has taken place rapidly in my home island and many old kampong houses have given way to high rise apartments that has changed the face of the places I grew up in.
A spanking multi lane coastal highway cuts across reclaimed lands from the once muddy flats of the Jelutong foreshore and makes travel to and from Georgetown to the southern villages of my home island just a matter of minutes compared to the days of old.
As much as I wanted to go fishing like in the good old days, being married and aged now, somehow proved to be fruitless and I was resigned to sigh in despair and just gaze longingly at my fishing spool and other paraphernalia, lie unused in my bag. Hmmmphh...maybe next time!
I got to meet my brother Omar Khan, a martial arts enthusiast and master collector of priceless antique Malay weaponry. He has an outstanding extensive collection of precious authentic Malay and Indonesian weapons that took my breath away.
Here I am holding an antique 600 over years old keris from before the Malaccan Sultanate era.
He has been offered hundreds of thousands of ringgits for this keris by Western kris enthusiasts but has declined the offer as he loves it too much to want to even consider selling it.
Omar also happens to run and manage a thriving restaurant business in Bayan Lepas with my youngest brother Nasiruddin at the former Restoran A.Moosa now renamed Cargas Cafe at 978, Main Road, Bayan Lepas, Penang.
Man, how they have transformed my late stepdad's old restaurant into the bustling dynamic modern restaurant they have running in two shoplots there now.
Their special fusion of good old Malabari Mamak food with traditional delicious mouthwatering Penang Malay food has the crowds lining up to get their plate of sumptuous glorious steaming hot super finger licking food that I had to forgo any thought of ever getting in line to taste their sought after food!
I salute both Omar and Nasirudin for their success in making Cargas Cafe a truly # 1 best Muslim Halal restaurant in this part of the island! Their restaurant is such a hit that even the Star Newspaper featured them in their publications recently!
If you are living in Penang, go check out my brothers restaurant in Bayan Lepas old town. It's just opposite Jalan Kolam Ikan is the extended corner shoplots on the left hand side of the main road of Bayan Lepas heading to Georgetown.
I was extremely delighted to see my youngest brother Nasiruddin running such a bustling kitchen and even more surprised to see his customers make a beeline to the kitchen at the back of the restaurant to get their steaming hot delicious fried chicken and fresh fish curry as the counters were fast running out of food as the hungry customers snapped up whatever dishes were being served!
Fuyoo!!! You need to see it with your own eyes! All races were there. Chinese, Malays, Indians, Sikhs, Caucasians, etc....Alhamdulillah! I'm so grateful to Allah to see my brothers business thriving like that! May their business keep on booming forever! Ameen.
Back to my Raya visiting. I got to meet my nephew Kamaruddin's firstborn, Muhammad Shafik. The little fella was simply so cute and a delight to behold.
More after this.

Kepada sekelian umat Islam yang akan menyambut ketibaan 1hb. Syawal 1428 Hijrah, saya ucapkan 'Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri'.
Hari Raya Aidilfitri merupakan Hari Kerai'an bagi kita umat Islam yang telah berjaya menyempurnakan ibadah Berpuasa selama sebulan sepanjang Ramadan nan Mubarak. Hari Raya Aidilfitri bukanlah bermakna kita boleh terus kembali melakukan sebarang dosa dan bersukaria tanpa mengenal batas batas didalam agama Islam kita yang suci.
Bagaimanakah cara kita harus menyambut Aidilfitri?
Didalam Sunnah Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, telah diterangkan pada kita cara cara umat Islam harus rai'kan hari kemenangan kita menundukkan hawa nafsu, meninggalkan segala perbuatan terlarang atau makruh, serta melaksanakan sebanyak mungkin amal ibadat yang terdaya oleh kita dengan seikhlas hati demi Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
Tertib menyambut ketibaan Syawal nan Mulia adalah dengan :
- Bangun sebelum subuh
- Mandi dan membersihkan serta mengemaskan tubuh badan kita
- Solat Subuh serta berwirid dan bertakbir
- Berpakaian serba elok dan bersih serta mengharumkan diri
- Bersegera ke masjid dan mengerjakan Solat Aidulfitri berjamaah
- Bersalam salaman sesama muslim dan memaafkan salah silap orang pada kita dan memohon maaf diatas kesilapan kita
- Bermaaf'an sesama ahli keluarga terutama dengan ibubapa jika masih hidup serta suami isteri dan anak pinak
- Makan apa yang baik dan berkhasiat serta bersederhana didalam makan minum kita
- Menziarahi sanak saudara dan jiran tetangga
- Merapatkan tali silaturrahim sesama Islam dan meraikan yang bukan Islam yang mengunjungi kediaman kita
- Menjauhi perbuatan yang berdosa serta menjaga tingkah laku serta sikap kita yang terjaga baik selama Ramadan yang baru lepas
- Nasihat menasihati diantara satu sama lain dan berbaik sangka sesama kita
- Bersabar dengan kerenah manusia semasa memandu kenderaan dijalanraya dan berhati hati didalam perjalanan.
- Meneruskan kerajinan beribadah seterusnya sama seperti kita lakukan didalam bulan Ramadan.
As an Uptrend Networks Business Team Leader, I am grateful to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for the kindness and compassion shown by my Uptrend Networks top management who have graciously given an Umrah package to the parents of the late Nurin Jazlin Jazimin recently.
This Umrah Package is meant to help Jazimin and his wife, the parents of the brutally murdered victim of Nurin Jazlin, 8 years old to go perform the Umrah to Makkah Al Mukarramah in Arabia and attain some peace of mind and gain spiritual strength from being able to visit Islam's holiest site on Earth.
This gracious gesture from Uptrend Networks speaks volumes about our Network Marketing Business Group and the quality of people we have in our management team.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala bless our Uptrend leaders for their offer to help out Jazimin to start a business of his own as he has quit his taxi driving job after Nurin's tragic murder.
Read the Malay Mail report about Uptrend's umrah package to Nurin's parents here.
On the eve of Eidul Fitri , let's all read a prayer for the soul of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin who had to depart from this life in such a vile and cruel manner.

He's a real joke alright...only thing is that because of his cock eyed policies, the Iraqis and Afghanis ain't laughing , cos he's caused their countries to be bombed and destroyed that his policies has caused the massacre of millions of innocent civilians from both those countries.
Donald Trump however socks it to President Bush Jr. straight to the worst American President in history in the following video.
Donald Trump for US President! He should run for President! He'd be much more better at it!
I don't know what else do I have to put up in my header warning unethical bloggers who simply copy or plagiarize parts or whole scale my articles which they find interesting?
I appreciate certain attention or reference being made to my writings and encourage links be made to my postings but I really do not savor such irresponsible bloggers or website administrators who simply take my writings without my permission and put it up in their sites and open it for public comment!
Another form of infringing upon my rights is saying that I 'echo' anyone's views for it is simply an affront to me in saying that I wrote anything 'after' the blogger writes anything in response to what I had put to pen in my site about any subject for the matter.
It's frustrating for me when my fellow bloggers do not have an iota of commonsense in asking for permission from me in the first place to reproduce any of my writings in advance and getting my approval in writing before going ahead and publishing any of my articles in their sites.
This is one major 'grey area' in Blogosphere that needs to be agreed upon in regulating the do's and dont's of being a publishing blogger.
I know that not many are aware of journalistic ethics and general guidelines that they need to follow in becoming a blogger or as the glamorized title of being a 'citizen journalist' which is being touted by certain quarters but at least have the common sense of not being a bloody copycat or plagiarist of another blogger's ideas!
By such an irresponsible criminal act of taking someone's writings without their knowledge or permission and then putting it up for open comment by their readers, the offending blogger does a grave injustice to the said blogger when he or she is oblivious to his or her articles being discussed or debated in the copyist's site without his or her knowledge!
The blogger whose writings are being commented upon without his or her knowledge is unfairly opened up to abuse and scandal when he or she fails to respond to the comments in the offending party's site!
What kind of person is such a blogger or webmaster who commits such an injustice against the owner of the article without his or her knowledge of the matter?
This is what I have encountered many times since I started writing.
Some of those who breached the unwritten code of ethics amongst us in the Blogosphere apologized and promptly removed the copied articles from their sites but then some other idiot comes along and repeats the same old unprincipled offense against myself and others in my same situation.
It is important that a blogger or webmaster realize that whilst the blogging world is pretty much free from government control and restrictions , it doesn't mean that he or she is free to go and take any other author's articles and publish it in their own sites or spaces!
Speaks volumes about their character of being a transgressor of the goodwill and camaraderie we feel in our hearts amongst ourselves in the Blogosphere.
I sincerely hope that those who are doing this stupid thing to immediately remove my articles which are on their site or I will be forced to publish their identities and url's for the whole world to know as to who they are ...which I really do not wish to..for now.
Those who have done me wrong know who they are and if they read this heartfelt plea from me to please do the respectful corrective action by removing immediately such articles of mine to do so soon.
Blogging is good for the people but please understand that certain unspoken rules need to be taken into consideration by those who speak about justice and all that but end up screwing their fellow bloggers in the process.
Have a great festive weekend and please consider others feelings before doing anything that you know is not right in your heart.
I would like to thank all those who have co-operated with me before this in righting the wrongs they did to me and wish them all the best in their writings.
I am referring to the fantasy of inspiring the Council of Malay Rulers to ever garnering enough courage to spring clean the present government of the corrupt ones and to restore justice to the judiciary!
Although such a nation changing wish is admirable and playing in every citizen's mind, reality comes along in knowing that this here is Malaysia, the land of the 'tidak apa' culture that runs deep in the veins of everyone from the lowliest being in the country to ones reigning in the royal palaces.
Stop fooling ourselves that such a scenario will ever take place here in this soil where once the Malay Royals didn't think twice about signing off their powers to the colonial masters of yesteryears!
If not for Dato Onn Jaafar, the Malay Rulers will have faded into obscurity had he not struggled to return to them their present existence as being 'Constitutional Monarchs' of this land and fought against the British plans of implementing the Malayan Union which would have seen the rights of the Malays and the Sultans phased out by the stipulations contained in the draft of the legislation.
Under the Malayan Union, the Malay Rulers will have to concede all their rights and powers to the British Crown had Dato Onn Jaafar not rallied the Malays against the British Colonialists!
Does history record any of the Malay Royals taking up the fight to defend themselves and protect their sovereignty over their lands? Not that I have heard of or read anywhere?
Such an impossibility has yet to materialize in the years since Dato Onn fought to preserve the Malay Royalty as the sovereign 'de facto' rulers of this nation.
For all his sacrifices, Dato Onn's deeds weren't reciprocated by the Malay Rulers with any equivalent efforts on their part to see to it that they honor his struggle to preserve their Majesties dignities and honor by being earnest enough to fight for their rights and to demand that they be given their rightful positions as the absolute Sultans and Rajah's of their individual states and territories!
Instead the Malay Royals have resigned themselves to being mere 'Constitutional Rulers' and allowed the office of the Prime Minister absolute rule over this nation including their royal selfs!
Isn't this utterly preposterous?
Only HRH, the Sultan of Negara Brunei Darussalam remains as the sole Malay Sultan who wields absolute executive royal powers over his small but filthy rich and wealthy Sultanate! Daulat Tuanku!
What kind of freedom and sovereignty are we talking about for our Malay Rulers when they resign themselves to being defanged powerless monarchies in the absolute reality of this country?
What royal authority are we depending upon to see spring into action here when a mere citizen in the person of the Prime Minister in fact reigns over the monarchs?
All your petitions and memorandums simply end up in the forgotten files section of the Prime Minister Office Complex in Putrajaya.
Malaysians ought to wake up to this reality.
Until and unless any one of the current Sultans and Raja decides enough is enough and issues forth a royal decree calling upon the people to rally around him and support his wish to see to it that their Royal absolute powers are rightfully returned to the Malay Rulers and truly rule over this nation, all these talk of getting the Agong to put things right is just a passing notion that will fade away into nothingness.
This is the reality here. All our petitions, protests marches, our vigils, our bloggings, our raising of banners and placards will be just that. A sign of protest that will go into the history books but will not change the current status quo.
Can't Malaysians see that until any of the Malay Rulers really do something in the lines of what I have expressed, not a whisker of the current Executive will be harmed or even touched!
We can dream on till Kingdom Come but nothing's gonna change for us until the impossible happens. That impossibility is yet to be seen take place in this once acclaimed Malay empire.
For the moment being, carry on dreaming and praying for a miracle to stir any of the royal's hearts for I know that the people are just itching to go pledge their alliances with any of the Sultans who has any iota of the ancient warriors blood in them.
Maybe, nothing will ever change and we will all just grow old and pass away frustrated, wishing for the nation to transform itself but such a thing only takes place in the old Malay bangsawan theatre.
Ah well, what the heck! Que sera sera...whatever will be..will be ...the future's not our's to see..que sera sera..what will be ..will be...
