Abdullah for once is doing the correct thing

Barely 24 hours after this blog posted about Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's decision to go for a 2-week holiday when the country is facing a major flood crisis, the premier returned to the country. Abdullah went to the ground to see for himself on the rescue and relief efforts being undertaken at the affected areas.

And in his Christmas message, the Prime Minister of Malaysia called on all Malaysians to bridge the divides that separate them and build on the similarities that connect them. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi also said that Malaysians must not forget that they share the same future and destiny. "Let us respect our differences, and at the same time strengthen and celebrate our unity in diversity", he said in a message released by the Prime Minister's Department in Putrajaya.

Bumiputera Blogspot wishes all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Malaysians suffer in floods, Abdullah goes holiday

Malaysia is hit by monsoon heavy rains, causing massive evacuation of the people in several states. The floods have claimed 6 human lives so far. Ahmad Sarkawi, Marsiah Ahmad and Nor Azahari Nordin drowned. Teh Sook Ching died after hanging on for 24 hours for help to get her to the hospital. Her family members had called various authorities for immediate aid but efforts to reach their home were hampered by shoulder-deep waters. Bodies of M. Mageswari and A. Muniandy were found in a car submerged in waters.

Residents climbing onto a wall to escape the rising flood waters, as household items and debris float out to the front yard from their homes.

A family of 9 members survived for 2 days,
relying on the water from a kettle. Ramachandran said his family managed to climb up to the upper floor of his double-storey house and smashed the windows before asking for help. "My children were crying for food, and many other families also faced the same problem. The rescue team reached here very late." He said that some of the rescue workers also asked for money from the flood victims.

Desperate: Affected residents being evacuated

Shops in the affected areas
ran out of essential goods in panic hoarding. Worried relatives in other parts of Malaysia tried in vain to call their relatives who were trapped in the floods as phone lines went dead.

In these desperate hours, the
sleepy and liar Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi decided to reward himself a 2-week holiday overseas to sleep even more. Over 80,000 Malaysians are suffering now, losing their homes and valuables and the "I am in control" premier is holidaying. So much for his evil and cruel Islam Hadhari government.

Bumiputera and Non-bumiputera in Malaysia

This post is for the Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's idiotic Islam Hadhari government and his racist and highly corrupted UMNO politicians:

You like to see things based on the skin colours, you do things purely for your own race (bumiputera) and you sideline,
discriminate, take advantage and bully the rest of the Malaysians not of your race (non-bumiputera).

But they (the non-bumiputera Malaysians) worked very hard, pledged their full loyalties to this nation. Despite being disadvantaged from entering a public university up to buying a dream house, they continue to stay in this country, simply because they love Malaysia.

Wake up, Abdullah. Your religion never taught you to discriminate and to be a racist.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's cruel government does not listen to the people

Bok House, located on Jalan Ampang nearby the Petronas Twin Towers is probably one of the most visible yet least remembered relic of early Kuala Lumpur. The home will probably be best remembered as Le Coq d'or (The Golden Cockerel), a small restaurant and bar which florished in the early 60's and continued to run until the house was closed to the public in 2001. Well-known civil engineering firm of Swan & Maclaren designed and built the Bok House in 1929, which represented Kuala Lumpur's grandest neo-classical mansion.

Bok House was the epitome of style and luxury in Malaysia's capital city. Its magnificent Palladian style interior and exterior are still unmatched. The famous wood panelled dining room, its art nouveau chandeliers and high ceiling still have no match in KL despite the plethora of new and trendy luxury dining establishments. However, Bok House is now gone, forever.

sleepy Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's government demolished the heritage building on 15 December 2006. Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) decided that the history-rich building must go. This is in despite of various objections and appeals by the Malaysian public to the government to preserve the heritage building.

The death of Bok House on 15 December 2006

Various appeal letters were written to the government and
the media, national newspapers such as The Star and The New Straits Times published articles about the heritage building, NGOs such as Badan Warisan Malaysia fought hard for the survival of Bok House while the common people expressed their feelings through their blogs and webpages. The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) stated that it would be proud and honoured to serve as the caretaker and custodian of Bok House. Even the Malaysian Institute of Architects does its part too.

But Abdullah Ahmad Badawi doesn't care. His
racist Islam Hadhari government does not listen to the people at all. The cruel government only wants the people to listen and to believe in this liar.

"Without heritage, civilisation is gone and developing states will be detached from history" ~ Datuk Seri Rais Yatim, Malaysian Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage, 29 May 2006.

3 hell years for Malaysia under Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

When the fuel price was increased in early 2006, the government with the idiotic Islam Hadhari Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said that the hike could not be avoided due to escalating world oil price at that time. But when the world oil price started to ease in the final quarter of the year, the government said NO when asked if the fuel price will be lowered accordingly.

Then comes the higher tariff for the electricity. A 12% increment. As usual, the
lying Malaysian government told Malaysians that "our electricity rate is still the lowest in the region". Next, the water tariff. Water costs more in the self-declared state of Selangor. After numerous times of water tariff adjustments since the new millenium, Malaysians were promised that "the water will be cleaner". Of course, the ripples of these increments have caused higher living costs. Higher price for the favourite mee goreng (fried noodle), higher price for the vegetables, higher price for the public transportation etc.

And now, the
sleepy Prime Minister of Malaysia has declared that his cruel government will "share the burden of the people" by increasing the toll rates of 5 major highways in the Klang Valley (with more toll increments for other highways in 2008). Knowing that more and more Malaysians no longer believe in what the Barisan Nasional (BN) government is saying, Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak had a closed-door meeting with the editors-in-chief of all newspapers and television stations in the country, telling them not to play up the toll increments.

Cruel toll increments of 5 major highways in the Klang Valley

Meanwhile, Works Minister Samy Vellu defended the toll increments, saying that "the toll rate is RM0.136 per kilometre for us, it is RM0.227 in Thailand". Either the bald Works Minister is fooling the people or he really does not know that there's no tolled-highway from Bukit Kayu Hitam (Malaysia) all the way to the capital Bangkok on toll-free highways.

Billions of ringgit of the people's money were wasted to bail out ailing companies. A total of RM11 billion was pumped to rescue companies under weak bumiputera leadership such as the Putra LRT (RM4.5 billion), STAR LRT (RM 3 billion) and Malaysia Airlines (RM2.8 billion).
Useless and wasteful projects worth RM1 trillion were announced so far.

Malaysia's STAR LRT train crashed the end of the track in Kuala Lumpur

But the Malaysian government choose not to take over the 5 highways in the Klang Valley (total takeover costs will be RM4.3 billion) to scrap the toll collection to truly ease the burden of the people. Instead, the government is happier to "help the people" by paying RM2.6 billion of the people's money annually to the highway companies as part of a compensation for not increasing the tolls even higher.

The government (which last increased the civil servants pay in 1992) has not entertained the civil servants' plea for a salary revision - some of the civil servants earn below the poverty line. Even if the government agrees to a 40% increment of the salaries as requested by the civil servants, it will only costs an additional RM6 billion, which is a no-match when compared with Petronas' RM41.7 billion income tax to the government last year.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi during his interview with The Bangkok Post has said that, "the old man (former premier Tun Dr. Mahathir) practically smashed (my son-in-law) Khairy's pot of rice". The
half-past six Prime Minister did not realised that he has smashed the pot of rice of many Malaysians out there. And during his interview with CNN, the premier has said that the Malaysian Chinese should be grateful.

This is Malaysia under Abdullah's Islam Hadhari

This is what happened under Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's Islam Hadhari (moderate Islam) administration.

* Chaos hit the Kuala Lumpur Hospital's morgue as two parties were adamant that they had the sole right to the body of one Rayappan Anthony, 71, who died at the hospital. Rayappan's family members claimed that he was a Christian while the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) said that he was a Muslim. The argument had been going on at the morgue's compound.

* Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) has rejected the plea of the Chinese students to revive the Chinese Language Society at UPM. The Chinese Language Society in UPM has been banned for over 24 years.

* The president of the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) Zainal Abidin Azim has said that "spending RM40,000 on a seminar for 50 people is peanuts. The trip is aimed at fostering good ties".

Expect more stupid things from the "I am in control" man.
