KISAH BENAR :- SERAM SEJUK BILA MEMBACA NYA..........???

on Oct 24, 2010

Aku punya seorang rakan baik dari zaman kanak-kanak. Lim Wei Choon. Sama-sama bersekolah rendah hingga ke peringkat menengah. Selepas SPM. Aku masuk ke Tingkatan 6, manakala Lim dihantar keluarganya melanjutkan pelajaran ke Amerika Syarikat. Kenangan sewaktu kanak-kanak hingga ke zaman remaja terlalu banyak yang dikongsi bersama.
Setiap kali hariraya menjelang, Lim pasti berkunjung ke rumah ku untuk menikmati dodol arwah ayahku yang amat digemarinya. kadangkala, jika ada kenduri kendara dirumahku, pasti Lim akan turut serta. Aku jarang ke rumahnya kecuali umtuk beberapa sambutan seperti harijadi dan juga Tahun Baru Cina. Aku takut dengan anjing peliharaan keluarga Lim.
“Allah menyukai seorang apabila di bekerja sesuatu pekerjaan, dia akun dan mahir dalam pekerjaan itu” (Hadis).
Dengan Lim juga aku belajar matematik manakala subjek Bahasa Malaysia sering menjadi rujukannya padaku. Kenangan-kenangan seperti memancing, mandi jeram, ponteng sekolah untuk melihat pertandingan ‘breakdance’, semuanya kami kongsi bersama-sama. Apa yang ingin kunyatakan ialah, warna kulit dan perbezaan ugama tidak pernah menjadi penghalang persahabatan kami. 20 tahun telah berlalu, Lim telah menetap di Amerika setelah berjaya mendapat Green Card, beliau bekerja disana. Itu yang kuketahui dari kakaknya.
Hubungan ku dengan Lim terputus setelah dia melanjutkan pelajaran. maklumlah, dizaman kami dulu tiada internet, email atau telefon bimbit, yang ada cuma sesekali menghantar poskad bertanya khabar. Untuk menulis surat kepada lelaki amat malas kami rasakan.


TAMPARAN AWAL DUN GALAS UNTUK PAKATAN...........???

MCA's Wee says Chinese in Galas "actually don't like" Pakatan



(Bernama) - MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong is convinced that voters in the Galas state constituency, particularly the Chinese community, are not easily influenced by the tactics employed by the opposition.
Dr Wee, who is also the Deputy Education Minister, said the Chinese voters were now more mature in choosing leaders in their constituency.
"The Chinese community has made a clear stand that they actually don't like the opposition (PAS) because the party had never been concerned before and had never visited them to give any assistance.”
"The situation is so different with the Barisan Nasional (BN) and MCA leaders showing interest on their living condition and giving immediate aid if necessary," he told reporters after visiting Chinese homes in Kampung Baru, here Saturday.
As such, Dr Wee said the MCA machinery would continue to monitor the tactics of the opposition who tried to incite the Chinese voters to the extent of affecting racial harmony.
The by-election for the Galas state constituency seat is being held on Nov 4 following the death of the incumbent (PAS) assemblyman Chek Hashim Sulaima who died on Sept 27.
*********************************************
What the MCA Youth chief said is actually quite true. And when the government leaders say something that is true we should admit so and not disagree with them just because they stand on the opposite side of the political fence. The Chinese from the three villages in the Galas constituency are very angry with the state government. And this anger has been there for some years now.
The state normally appoints the ketua kampung or village heads as well as the local councillors -- as there are no local council elections as what we from the civil society movements would like to see. Most times these village or council heads would be cronies of those in power. That is sort of how politicians reward their supporters -- by giving them positions in the local councils and villages.
But these Chinese heads of the villages have been behaving like Little Napoleons or warlords (taiko in Chinese). And they have been bullying the Chinese villagers.
For example, in one incident, the Chinese villagers had applied for a piece of land to build their temple. However, since that land is a very nice piece of land the Chinese village head hijacked it for his holiday resort. This has of course angered the Chinese villagers.
Complaints have been made to the state, in particular to Husam Musa, but no action was taken and these gangster village heads continue to terrorise the Chinese villagers. So now it is payback time. The villagers are going to teach the state a lesson by voting for Umno -- whereas it was the Chinese votes that gave that Galas seat to the opposition in the last election.
Then we have the significant number of Orang Asli voters who are very angry that the local council demolished their church and still refuses to allow them to rebuild it even though the court has ruled in favour of the church. No doubt it was the local council that did this and not the state government. However, since the local councillors are selected by the state and not voted into office, the Orang Asli blame the state government.
And this matter is still unresolved. So the Orang Asli may want to teach PAS a lesson by voting for Umno.
Can PAS win the Galas by-election? With Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, the taiko of Gua Musang, leading the charge (which means the Malay votes are in jeopardy) and with the Orang Asli and Chinese both angry with the state, it will be an uphill battle for PAS. And maybe it is good they lose this by-election or else they will not listen when we tell them of the problems on the ground. They will go on thinking that they need not listen to us since they and not us are the politicians (so they know better).
Of course, it is not too late to salvage things but PAS will need to bend over backwards if they want to win back the support of the Orang Asli and Chinese. And, considering that the Malay votes are in jeopardy, it is either they win back the support of the Orang Asli and Chinese or else they will lose the by-election.
The Batu Sapi by-election in Sabah is not any better for the opposition. With a one-to-one contest it is already difficult to beat PBS, especially when the widow of the late candidate is contesting the seat. But in a three-corner fight it will be plain sailing for PBS/Barisan Nasional.
The situation is so hopeless that there are some in DAP who are saying they had better not waste their time by going to Sabah. BN is going to win anyway. Yong Teck Lee of SAPP is going to grab the Chinese votes while Ansari Abdullah of PKR is going to grab the Malay votes. But with the Chinese and Malay votes split, all PBS needs is 40% of the votes to win. And it is not that difficult to win at least 40% of the votes.
The logic of both SAPP and PKR contesting that by-election in a three-corner fight is to see who wins second place. In an election, winning second place means losing because only number one counts. So what is the novelty of winning second place when second place is a loser just like third place?
This is so that they can decide who contests that seat in the coming general election. If SAPP wins more votes than PKR then SAPP will contest that seat in the next election -- and vice versa.
Okay, that may solve Batu Sapi (and I say ‘may’). But what about the 84 other seats in Sabah? There are 25 parliament and 60 state seats in Sabah. They can arrive at a formula for Batu Sapi but what formula are they going to use for the other 84 seats?
Are they also going to contest in three-corner fights in the coming general election for these other 84 seats and then decide, based on who wins number two spot, who should contest that seat come two general elections from now?
What if it is a four-corner or five-corner contest two general elections from now? SAPP and PKR can agree on the formula and shake hands on the matter (and it is only a handshake, mind you, not a sealed contract) but what is there to stop another party other than SAPP or PKR from joining the contest and, again, turning it into a three-corner fight?
This ‘gentleman’s agreement’ thing does not make sense. You can come to an agreement but you can’t control what others do. Someone can always resign from their party and contest the election as an ‘independent candidate’ like what happened back in 2004. So we shall still see a three- or four-corner fight.
The trouble is the politicians always think they know better what they are doing than those of us who ‘comment only’. But then, those of us who 'comment only' always get to say ‘I told you so’ later.
Let’s hope I don’t get to say ‘I told you so’ after the Galas and Batu Sapi by-elections. Let’s hope the opposition, for once, gets to prove me wrong. I would love to be proven wrong and having to eat my words once the by-election results are in.


KEADILAN Tetap Yakin Biarpun Sapp Cuba Pecahkan Undi Pakatan Rakyat

on

Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan Rakyat (KEADILAN), Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hari ini berkata keputusan Parti Maju Sabah (Sapp) meletakkan calon dalam Pilihan Raya Kecil Batu Sapi adalah usaha untuk memecahkan undi kepada Pakatan Rakyat.

Anwar menegaskan pada peringkat awal perbincangan dengan Presiden Sapp, Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee, KEADILAN mengambil pendekatan berlembut dalam usaha untuk memujuk parti tersebut untuk tidak bertanding di kerusi parlimen tersebut dan membenarkan Pakatan Rakyat melalui KEADILAN bertembung dengan Barisan Nasional dalam pertandingan satu lawan satu.

"Kita memasuki pilihan raya kecil ini dengan pendekatan yang amat relistik bahawa kerusi ini adalah kubu Barisan Nasional dan kita adalah 'underdog' dan menerima hakikat ini.

"Kita melalui proses perbincangan atasa dasar berlembut sekali merayu kepada mereka agar diberikan Pakatan Rakyat ruang untuk bertemu BN di pilihan raya kecil ini atas dasar satu lawan satu bukan antara Pakatan Rakyat, BN dan Sapp yang kami tidak tahu di mana pendirain mereka; samada mereka mahu menyertai kita (Pakatan Rakyat) atau Barisan Nasional. Kita tidak mahu mengambil risiko besar dalam perkara ini," jelas Anwar ketika berucap pada majlis pelancaran jentera PRK KEADILAN Batu Sapi sekaligus merasmikan pejabat baru Cabang Batu Sapi di Bandar Ramai-Ramai di sini tengahari tadi.

Bagaimanapun Anwar memberi jaminan kepada semua Ketua Cabang KEADILAN negeri Sabah yang hadir pada majlis tersebut, tindakan Sapp yang mencalonkan Teck Lee bertanding kerusi parlimen P185 itu sedikit pun tidak akan menjejaska kekuatan dan strategi merampas Batu Sapi dari tangan BN.

"Kita minta Sapp beri pertimbangkan permintaan kita tapi mereka nampaknya bertegas, jadi saya ingin tekankan keputusan mereka sedikitpun tidak akan menjejaskan kempen biarpun kiat berdepan dengan pertandingan tiga penjuru.

"Apa yang paling penting kita perlu perkukuhkan jentera dan perbaiki semua kelemahan yang ada. Di peringkat pusat, JPRP (Jabatan Pilihan Raya Pusat) sedia membantu, begitu juga pimpinan negeri di bawah Ahmad Thamrin tetapi peringat cabang adalah fokus sebenar. Ini kerana pimpinan peringkat cabanglah yang mengenali segenap aspek kawasan ini biarpun dari segi suku kaum di sini samada Bajau, Kadazan, Orang Sungai, Suluk dan sebagainya. Saya menggesa semua anggota baik Melayu, Cina, Kadazan gembelengkan tenaga dan bersatu membantu jentera pilihan raya Batu Sapi.

"Kita yakin Pakatan Rakyat akan lepasi tembok perkauman yang dibina oleh BN dan catatkan satu sejarah di Batu sapi yang akan mengejutkan dan membahagiakan rakyat Sabah. Kita akan menghantar jurucakap bagi Batu Sapi dan sabah yang lebih berkesan daripada tukang-tukang angguk (wakil rakyat BN dari Sabah) yang ada dalam Parlimen sekarang," tegas Anwar lagi.



Batu Sapi: BN to field Linda Tsen, PKR banks on Ansari.

on


KOTA KINABALU: Linda Tsen Thau Lin, 54, a housewife and part-time music teacher will be the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Batu Sapi parliament by-election.
The widow of MP Edmund Chong Ket Wah is also the deputy wanita chief of the Elopura Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) division that was headed by her late husband who died in a road accident on Oct 9 causing the by-election.

Chief Minister Musa Aman described Tsen as a capable woman who would serve Batu Sapi well.

“It is now time for all BN component parties to work together to ensure victory,” he said today.

Her late husband was the PBS treasurer general and a two-term MP for Batu Sapi , parliamentary constituency with 25,582 voters with 1,535 being postal.

However FMT learnt that PBS supporters in Batu Sapi are reportedly unhappy with the late decision to drop a front-runner as a candidate in favour of Tsen.
State BN leaders had initially contemplated fielding former Sibuga assemblyman Thien Fui Yun in the parliamentary by-election but has since changed their minds at the last minute.
Tsen became the new hot favourite - and subsequently the BN's choice - after the state BN felt that a local face would be a better candidate. The fact that she was the widow of Edmund Chong, whose death in a road accident on Oct 9 caused the by-election, also played a factor in the decision to pick her.

Sources said PBS president Joseph Pairin Kitingan, who had been given the mandate to select the candidate for BN, had initially opted for Thien.

However, the announcement by the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) that its president and former Sabah chief minister Yong Teck Lee would contest for the seat in the Nov 4 parliamentary by-election, as well as pressure from his right hand man, deputy president Dr Maximus Ongkili, saw Pairin changing his mind, they said.

Thien, a PBS vice president and chief of PBS' Gum Gum division, a state constituency neighbouring Batu Sapi, was reportedly angered by the decision, said a source.

To quell any hint of rebellion, another source said, PBS deputy president for the Chinese quota, Dr Yee Moh Chai organised a dinner gathering for the party's Chinese members including Thien at a restaurant in Sandakan last night.

"Supposedly Yee explained to them the reason behind the party's leadership decision. Thien wants to know why,” said one of the sources.

Voters want local person

Political observers who have been monitoring PBS politics said Pairin has been known to change his mind at the eleventh hour and his decision should come as no surprise to Thien and his supporters.

In the 2008 general election he also shocked incumbent Jornah Mozihim whose name was already announced as a candidate by the state BN chairman a few days earlier, by replacing her with Sarapin Magana as PBS-BN candidate for Matunggong state seat.

Sources said that of Tsen (right) and Thien, Tsen seems to have the advantage with the BN going for sympathy vote to curb the in-roads SAPP, who are considered strong contenders following its call for autonomy for Sabah among others, have made since quitting the BN in 2008.

PBS leaders believe that SAPP's decision to field Yong is an indication that the party is “going for broke” in the election.

Sabah CM Musa, also the state BN chief, who announced Tsen's candidacy today, has been reported as saying that BN's candidate will be a local person who knows and understands the needs of Sandakan people.

“The people of Batu Sapi want a wakil rakyat from the same area who understands their problems better,” he said yesterday.

Ansari is PKR's pick



The Batu Sapi by-election is expected to see a three-cornered fight with PKR also joining in the fray. The peninsular-based party named seasoned politician-cum-lawyer Ansari Abdullah as its candidate today.

The announcement was made by PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim in the presence of several Pakatan Rakyat leaders here.
Ansari, who is an Anwar loyalist, is Tuaran chief and a central leadership council member. He is also closely linked to deputy president aspirant Azmin Ali.

Sources told FMT that Anwar picked Ansari over others to take advantage of the large number of Muslim bumiputera voters at Batu Sapi.

“In any event Anwar is not keen to win this by-election. He thinks the general election is just around the corner and wants to gauge the support of the Muslims for the party,” said a source.

PKR is also believed to be upset with Yong for failing to step aside to allow for a straight fight between PKR and BN.

Going solely by popularity factor, many Batu Sapi voters believe Yong is the favourite to win this by-election.


There are 25,582 voters including 1,535 postal voters in Batu Sapi comprising 59% or 15,099 Muslim bumiputera, 38% or 9,737 Chinese, 2.69% or 689 non-Muslim bumiputera and 0.22% or 57 others.

HAZMAIN memangku Siti Norafida sambil diperhatikan oleh Siti Faezah 
di bawah jambatan yang menjadi rumah mereka di Lebuh Raya Besraya,
 Kuala Lumpur semalam


KUALA LUMPUR: Pengguna Lebuh Raya Sungai Besi (Besraya) di sini pasti tidak menyangka sebuah kolong di bawah jambatan yang mereka lalui di situ rupa-rupanya menjadi rumah kepada satu keluarga tiga beranak termasuk bayi mereka yang berusia setahun.
Bersama mereka ialah dua lelaki hidup yang turut merempat, Mohd. Hafiz Abdul Aziz, 30, dari Sepang dan Tan Chee Wah, 44, dari Serdang, Selangor.
Ketua keluarga itu, Hazmain Abdul Jalil, 28, membawa isterinya, Siti Faezah Abu Bakar, 27, dan anak perempuan mereka, Siti Norafida ke bawah jambatan itu sejak empat bulan lalu selepas dihalau dari sebuah rumah kosong yang sebelum itu menjadi tempat mereka berlindung.
Kawasan yang menjadi 'rumah' mereka itu tidak berdinding hanya dilapik dengan kayu sementara untuk mendapatkan bekalan air, mereka terpaksa mencuri air dari paip berdekatan.
* mereka ini tidak memerlukan menara 100 tingkat atau istana di putrajaya yang kos baik pulihnya mencecah pulohan juta ringgit ataupun kereta limosine yang sepanjang bas  rapid yang dikatakan milik exco Pemuda UMNO Malaysia(kononnya memperjuangan nasib orang melayu) tetapi apa yang mereka perlukan adalah sebuah rumah untuk berlindung dari hujan dan panas. - kerengga
