Why should MCA interfere with Utar?

October 9, 2010

Human nature is such that there are two kinds of human behaviour when it comes to charity – the pretentious and the altruistic donor. I have always doubted the sincerity of those who give to charity by proclaiming it under the flashbulbs of press photographers. In these amusing photo ops, you see the donors posing with an enormous mock cheque to emphasize the size of the donation. If you’re truly charitable, why not dispense with the fanfare and write the amount on a normal cheque?

Having said this, I can now tell you about the truly altruistic gesture of philanthropist Koon Yew Yin. He made an offer of RM30 million, quite gratuitously, for the building of hostels for University Tunku Abdul Raman (Utar) students in Kampar.

Ever since the university was founded, its students have had to find their own accommodation outside campus. In many cases, they have to pay exorbitant rents far beyond the means of poor or even middle- class students.

The generosity of Koon was brought to my attention by the unflattering headline ‘Tycoon wanted seat on council’ in theSun (Sept 3, 2010). The article’s sub-headline was ‘Koon also wanted Utar residential village named after him, says MCA division chief’.

The MCA division chief in question, Ipoh Timur’s Thong Fah Chong, had said Koon’s requests were not acceptable as they had “exceeded the university’s jurisdiction and [could be] deemed an interference in the management of the university”. Thong added that hostels could not be named at one’s whim and fancy.

In his immediate response, Koon countered that although it was correct that while the facility was to be named after him, what he had specified was that the hostel blocks should be named after the fundamental rights such as Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Freedom, or the qualities of integrity such as honesty, justice, etc.

Koon also categorically denied he had ever requested a seat on the Utar council, clarifying instead that he had agreed to Utar’s counter-proposal for a task force to oversee the construction of the hostels.

He said his requests, including for a seven-man task force (four from Utar and three to be nominated by him) to oversee the construction of the hostels, and for all construction contracts exceeding RM10,000 to be open to competitive tenders, were to ensure everything was done in the interest of the students. He said it was not meant to interfere with the management of the university.

It’s common practice

One may ask, why should the Ipoh Timur MCA division chief Thong Fah Chong (left) criticize the well-meaning and generous offer of RM30 million by a good Samaritan?

Thong even questioned the motive of Koon for his offer of substantial financial assistance to Utar. He accused Koon of wanting to sit on the council of the university. This is a false accusation. It is not true because Thong has admitted that “late last year he had … arranged for the philanthropist to meet the then president of the MCA … but he was not aware of what transpired at the meeting apart from the request”.

If he was unaware of what took place at the meeting, then how could he say that Koon wanted to sit on the university council?

Furthermore, why should a member of the MCA interfere with an offer of a donation to the university?

Should it not be left to the university to accept or not accept the offer without having to cast aspersions on the motive of the donor? If you must refuse the offer, surely it is polite to refuse it graciously? But the way it has been handled by Thong as the representative of the MCA has reflected badly on the upbringing of the man as well as on the sincerity of the association.

Not surprisingly, Koon has now withdrawn his offer? Can you blame him? Anyone in Koon’s shoes would have done the same thing.

A celebrated English lawyer of the 18th century, William Blackstone, was the first Vinerian Professor of Law in Oxford University, as was the renowned Geoffrey Cheshire later. The law professorship was named after a certain Mr Viner who had endowed on Oxford a large sum of money.

For his offered RM30 million, Koon did not even ask for a professorship to be named after him. All he asked was for any eventual profits from the hostel rental in future to be overseen by a foundation in his name, and for this foundation to disburse scholarships and other forms of assistance to Utar students.

And what is so wrong for the donor to establish a foundation in his name to oversee the utilization of his donation? Alfred Bernhard Nobel, 1833-96, Swedish chemist, engineer, and philanthropist – noted for his invention of dynamite (1866) – is a household name today for his bequest to the foundation awarding the Nobel prizes.

But in Malaysia, Utar and MCA vilified Koon for demanding accountability and transparency in how the university and its authorities from the political party would manage his RM30 million. Their action sinks my opinion of the MCA to an even lower level.

Students become innocent victims

After I retired from the bench in the year 2000, I returned to Ipoh. Here I met Thong who became a friend. Later I befriended Koon during the height of the Perak constitutional crisis of 2009.

Today I have lost respect for my erstwhile friend Thong because he tried to gain political mileage by vilifying poor Koon, an unpretentious retired engineer whose only sin – if you can call that a sin – is to offer RM30 million to build hostels for students.

Koon earned my respect and admiration because he was concerned with the plight of the thousands of students who face the uncertainty of not being able to find decent lodgings and having to pay extortionate rents to unscrupulous landlords besides. Since Utar students must seek accommodation outside campus, the private house owners in the vicinity have taken advantage of the situation.

If you’ve been reading the Ipoh Echo – a fortnightly free newspaper – you will have noticed that for several months now the paper carries an advertisement of Koon Yew Yin’s offer of scholarships to poor students.

Koon has given scholarships to about 70 deserving students for the last three-and-a-half years and most of them are studying in Utar. The only repayment required of the recipients is their word — a promise that when they’re financially secure after graduation, they will in turn help other poor students.

Just for this year alone, the Koon Yew Yin scholarships are worth a total RM1 million, of which some three-quarters of the sum has been approved to those applicants who passed their interviews. This itself is a large amount of money to be coming from a single Malaysian individual, and furthermore one who does not bond the students to work for him.

Yet there are some people in politics – in the MCA for instance – who are wary or envious of the unpretentious and well-meaning millionaire.

There is really more to why Utar and its political masters did not accept the donation of RM30 million from Koon, but I won’t dwell on the matter here.

But perhaps there is a lesson to be learnt from the withdrawal of Koon’s offer more than one year after it was made.

With these dubious episodes occurring, you can understand why I choose to be apolitical. But for the young students who have nothing to do with politics and the parents who have to worry about their children’s living environment the first time away from home, it is a disappointing lesson learned with some sad poignancy.

I think MCA is a joke….why so quiet on this?

You be the judge….for our children’s future.

UMNO caught lying AGAIN !!!

September 11, 2010

Once a liar always a liar….and it’s proven again, they lied!

During the last few days of Ramadan Month when the Muslims are fasting, it was supposed to be a Holy month but yet again some Muslims are willingly spewing lies after lies just to make themselves some cheap publicity in the news. Sad these Muslims do not respect their own followings but yet when non-Muslim invited to a Mosque by the nazir of the Mosque they make hell for them….and plenty of police reports….calling them “hina” Agama Islam.

See what they wear “officially” and what their leaders says.

UMNO & Perkasa Logo on their official shirt.

Rabu lalu, mesyuarat BN di Putrajaya memutuskan untuk memisahkan dirinya dari PERKASA kerana aktiviti pertubuhan itu boleh menjejaskan usaha BN untuk mendapatkan sokongan bukan Melayu. Sejumlah pemimpin BN yang menghadiri mesyuarat tersebut, telah menyatakan keraguan terhadap PERKASA dan mendesak Umno menyatakan pendiriannya terhadap pertubuhan tersebut.

Parti Cinta Malaysia menyokong tindakan pemimpin Umno memisahkan diri mereka daripada Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (PERKASA). Naib presidennya, Huan Cheng Guan berkata orang dan individu yang berfikiran waras sepatutnya menjauhkan diri daripada pertubuhan pimpinan ahli parlimen Pasir Mas, Datuk Ibrahim Ali.

“Kepimpinan Umno mesti mengarahkan wakil rakyatnya dan ketua bahagiannya supaya tidak menyertai aktiviti anjurah PERKASA dan menganggotai jawatankuasanya,” kata Huan yang juga bekas naib presiden Gerakan.

Berikutan itu, Setiausaha agung Umno, Datuk Tengku Adnan Mansor kemudian berjanji kepada rakan-rakan BN bahawa parti itu tidak akan memberi sokongan kepada PERKASA ataupun IbrahimPERKASA, yang mendakwa mempunyai 50,000 ahli, ditubuhkan selepas pilihanraya umum 2008 selepas pilihanraya dalam usaha untuk melindungi hak-hak berperlembagaan orang Melayu.

Ramai ahlinya adalah dari Umno. Benarlah kata orang, kewujudan PERKASA adalah satu bebanan ‘maha’ berat kepada Umno.. kehadirannya ternyata membuatkan Umno tidak selesa, selain membuktikan Umno gagal dalam membela hak Melayu/bumiputra (cakap je lebih)..

Tanggunglah sendiri wahai pemimpin dan penyokong Umno.. berani keluar statement (konon nk tunjuk tidak ada kaitan dgn PERKASA), so berani lah tanggung… selepas satu persatu bala menimpa.. mula mula kompenan BN dah beri ‘warning’, diikuti Parti Cinta Malaysia pula beri pukulan maut…
Umno kini hanya ada dua pilihan, sama ada menurut ‘titah’ parti2 kompenan BN dan Parti Cinta Malaysia, iaitu dgn memboikot segala aktiviti PERKASA sebagai membuktikan kata2nya, atau membuat U-turn dgn mengumumkan akan menyokong PERKASA..

Tidak pelik selepas ini, Umno akan berpecah kpd dua kumpulan, iaitu satu kumpulan yg cenderung kpd PERKASA/Ibrahim Ali/Tun Mahathir, dan satu kumpulan lagi yang menyampah dan meluat kepada team PERKASA tadi yg menjunjung gagasan 1Malaysia Najib, antaranya Khairy Jamaluddin dan Nazri Aziz…

May i ask, who is lying? UMNO or Perkasa? Najis or Ibrahim Ali? Tengku Adnan or Dr M?

looks like UMNO melayus are trying to cheat the Malaysian Malays again.

A Successful Malaysian Chinese Begged to come back by Government.

August 28, 2010

This is a very good and
inspirational story of a motivated Chinese man in
Malaysia…..

Posted by Sii Hoi Chan, he lives
in Kenyalang

I was 18 in 1997, I came home
half completed my high school in England because my
father was bankrupted.
He was a contractor, bankrupted because the licensee,
Taib’s uncle defaulted on paying royalty to the
Government.  Pocketed all the money my father gave.

Taik Mahmud

Together with 6 of my friends we went to Komat in Sama
Jaya to look for jobs as they only required MCE. To
help out the family.

The HR lady was an Iban, on our turn she refused to
give us application forms and demanded our qualifications.
Without even understanding us, we were turned away. On
further enquiry from us, she said, the 250 posts were
all filled. It was 10.25 am and the application counter
just opened at 9.30 am. Asked the guard to show us out.
Komat repeated publication for the posts for another
week. We went back again and again were rejected. This
time she asked us to look for jobs in China.

My uncle promptly help the six of us to look for jobs
from his contacts. Ironically, we all ended up in
Shenzhen China, working in a micro circuit board plant.
We were trained by some American to be testers as we
know English. We did well, so well that within 4 years,
we developed a special test using Argon emission from
induced current. Testing the board even more thoroughly
and 40+ times the efficiency we were doing.

After a few months of trial, the company decided to
subcontract all their circuit board testing to us using
the new testing system and they got the test done at a
fraction of the cost doing it manually.

Within 3 years, we are testing all the circuit board of
all the companies in Shenzhen then.

BELIEVE ME, WE ARE EACH NETTING 2 TO 3 MILLIONS USD A YEAR.

We spread to include contracts in a lot of companies
of China, US, Germany and Finland.

We now employ 7600 people and 1600 from Sarawak. Bumiputra
or non-bumiputra who made the grade we are after.

Why I am writing this?

Today my company has been operating in Penang for 6
months. We are employing 200 people.

I was conducting interviews for senior staff for the jobs.

One of the people that came in for the interview was the
same Iban lady from Komat 10+ years ago. The lady who
turned me away. The lady who told me I was not eligible
for the job. The lady who told me the posts were filled
when yet to select the first applicant of 250 and the
lady who asked me to go to China to look for a job.

I had the satisfaction to tell her all these if I
wanted to. Instead I listened to all her talk about how
great she had done in her former employment and now she
was out on a huge VSS. How well she will do for me with
her experience and how much she would like to work for a
Chinese boss. She said she is the daughter of an
influential bumiputra man and her husband is doing
well in business. I let her rave on with her diatribe.

Finally, when she realised she the one doing all the
talking and I was not even asking questions, she
stopped.

Finally I said, I know her. She was shocked, for now I
was properly suited up and not in T-shirt and jeans
like the first time we met.

I simply said I like to thank her for asking me to go
back to China to look for work. I did, I made it and
what she is seeing today and the brochure I placed
infront of her is in fact the SUCCESS from disgust and
disappointment of being a Malaysian Chinese!!

She was murmuring to herself. I told her, she will get
a job from me but not as the senior HR, not as the
assistant HR but as an assistant to the assistant HR.
She was shocked, happy and almost cried. Then she
confessed that her husband was a bankrupt and her 3 children
had to be in the care of her sister.

I told her, she meant nothing to me, her race meant
nothing to me and what she had done also meant nothing
to me. The insults, the frustrations and the anguish of
a young man trying to help his father. I told her she
would be  treated like everyone. She must get her job
done or she’d be out like anybody. I told her, I do
not care for YBs, bumi policies or business
opportunities in Malaysia. I do not need Malaysia.

I CAME BECAUSE I AM BEGGED TO COME, …….BY THE GOVERNMENT
OF MALAYSIA.

DPP vs Pornthip video goes online, finally!

August 26, 2010

Finally, a long waited video of the clown in court here in Malaysia.

Just for laugh….remember, laughter is the best medicine!


Justice in China vs Justice in Malaysia.

August 26, 2010

Sometimes we should not be talking too much of politics and just share with ourselves some good laugh. They always say laughter is the best medicine but i was wondering also if laughter can cure our headaches filled with gutter politics here in Malaysia.

In China, there was once upon a time a famous judge who was very well respected for all his judgement and prosecution on any crimes committed. Unlike in Malaysia, we have “kangaroos” giving out orders and judgements as though they are the King of the Jungles, thus making the people losing all their trust in Malaysian Courts. Some even have to leave the Country and self exile for the fear of being thrown in jail without trail at all. Even though he or she knows that even with a trail, he’ll be thrown in jail by the Judges whom are specially “picked” by just a phone call and everything will be…correct, correct, correct or to be corrected !!!

Below are the comparison of what Justice should be in Malaysia and China.

In China, they have the famous Justice Pao or “Pao Ching Thean”….

Top : Pao Ching Thean.

and in Malaysia, we should have this guy…….

Ka Pao Singh Thean

Ladies and gentleman, introducing KarPal Singh Thean ( formerly known as Pao Ching Thean)……Make sure you vote him in next GE!!!

thanks to a fellow blogger in FB who accidentally gives me this idea of Pao Ching Thean and KarPal Singh Thean…..”Thean” in mandarin means heavenly.

Exposed : UMNO using Islam for their political survival.

Another double standard treat by APNO or abused of Islam to “fitnah” Pakatan Rakyat’s government in Penang?

The Opposition party in Penang have been trying to use whatever they can grab to frame and smear the good Government of Penang under the charge of DAP’s CM Lim Guan Eng for the past weeks.

One such incident was a lonely Pak Ali who are not aware that his kampung was being demolish by the Federal Govt. and NOT the Penang Govt. If it was the Penang Government’s fault, i think it’s gong to be a huge demo instead of just 1 lonely man…..same as the chineseman who droused himself with “petrol” but forgot to bring along the lighter in Komtar and 2 so called “PAS men” who jumped in front of CM LGE’s car but was taken away or maybe being escorted home safely by the police.

yg mana satu halal dan haram?

Regards to the bacaan Doa using LGE’s name instead of the Agung’s was make a political issue by APNO and a couple of police reports have been made.

Najis "DOA" untuk seorang bukan Islam diMasjid.

I ask “Why the double standard?”….why didn’t they make a police reports against Najis the APNO PM for citing the same thing on an Indian candidate for the P094 Hulu Selangor by-election?

See how APNO have to use the Islamic Religion to hide their crazed for power and to win back Penang but due to the fact that melayu mudah lupa, they forgot that the did pray or “Doa” for a Non-Muslim in Hulu Selangor too.

Like the Malays use to say “Ibarat seperti meludah keLangit, kemudian terkena muka sendiri”….ha ha ha

MACC removes ‘offensive’ blog post attacking Dr Pornthip

August 23, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 23 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was forced today to remove from its oficial blog an offensive posting describing Thai forensic expert Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand as a fortune teller, and which the DAP said was prejudicial to the Teoh Beng Hock inquest.

The blog at ourdifferentview.com had posted an article entitled “Dr Porntip Ahli Nujum?” (Dr Porntip a Fortune-Teller), complete with an altered picture of Dr Pornthip as a gypsy fortune teller gazing into a crystal ball.

The MACC’s “Dr Pornthip a Fortune-Teller?” blog post, which was taken from an anonymous blog at http://www.imrite.wordpress.com, accused Dr Pornthip of being hired by the Selangor government to testify just to “inflame the rakyat’s anger”.

“The article is prejudicial to the on-going inquest and is a clear attempt to disclaim any responsibility and prevent the discovery of the truth behind Teoh Beng Hock’s death at MACC’s premises,” DAP national publicity secretary Tony Pua told The Malaysian Insider today.

“The use of an anonymous post to make baseless allegations against the credibility of Dr Pornthip is an offensive tactic by MACC to cover up its own mess,” he added.

The national anti-graft body’s official blog at http://www.ourdifferentview.com was launched in May this year to fight negative public perception since the mysterious death of Teoh, a DAP political aide, at MACC’s Selangor headquarters in Shah Alam last July.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (Prevention) Datuk Hajah Sutinah Sutan had cited the abundance of “gossip and inaccurate information” about the agency as the reason for launching their blog, Facebook page, and Twitter micro-blogging account this year.

The anti-graft body took down the “Dr Porntip Ahli Nujum?” post shortly after The Malaysian Insider requested an explanation on why they posted articles from anonymous blogs.

MACC’s corporate communications director however could not be reached for comment.

“If you (MACC) have something to say, say it in court in front of us,” said the lawyer.

How many times must the MACC shamed Malaysia?

A “Malay” name Pig in Malaysia.

August 15, 2010

Tee bin Abdullah (Tee = Pig in Hokkien)

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 15 — Controversial Mingguan Malaysia columnist Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee Abdullah continued his weekly diatribe against non-Malays, saying today that minorities who cannot respect the special position of Islam and the Malays should return to their homeland.

The Muslim convert also sneered that Malaysia should be renamed “Cinasia” or “Indiasia” if every demand by non-Muslims was accommodated when commenting on Centre for Policy Initiatives (CPI) columnist Helen Ang’s recent piece “Enforcing NEP on minority religions.”

“Will the practice of prayer (doa) cause the heart of the non-Muslims to melt and embrace Islam? She really (Helen Ang) hates Islam. Prayer (doa) is part of the Malay Muslim culture.

“Why would we want to delete all of our identity for merely wanting to accommodate others. If that’s the case, just change the name of Malaysia to Cinasia or Indiasia. How strange it is this species, never cease trying to challenge the position of Islam and Malays,” he wrote in his Sunday column headlined “Jangan terlalu berani mencabar” (Don’t be so brave to challenge).

In her piece, Ang questioned why non-Muslim religious societies were banned in national schools.

Ang added that the restriction on non-Muslim fellowship in schools has stopped many Chinese parents from sending their children to national schools.

“If I were a mother, I would never wish to subject my vulnerable child to a bellicose environment where my race, and the traditions and faith beliefs I’ve imparted to my son or daughter are disparaged,” she said.

In response, Tee said that the country does not want Ang’s children, whether legal or illegitimate, a favourite line he continually implies about the Chinese.

“She does not need to send her ‘children’ (if any were legitimate) to national school, if she is not confident with the national school or she is scared that her ‘children’ will become Malays. Her ‘children’ are not needed here.

“Just send her ‘children’ to schools in her homeland or overseas. The presence of ‘children’ are not needed here,” he said in a personal attack on Ang, who has also had two police reports lodged against her over her article.

Tee also said that Ang should migrate to the West if she is obsessed with their culture.

“I suggest that she migrate to another country, if this country does not provide her with any freedom. She should go to her country of origin or to the West because there is more ‘freedom’ there to build the biggest church and the highest statue in the world and have vernacular schools as well as having free sex.

“I do not think that she is proud of her ancestors because she prefers to use a white man’s name even though her eyes are sepet,” he said.

Tee stressed that non-Muslims should be grateful because the Malays have been very tolerant.

Tee's ancestors grave.

Tee means “pig” in Hokkien dialect (no pun intended) it leaves one wondering when this Malaysian Chinese convert is more Malay than the Malays when one converts to a Muslim in Malaysia, another fine example from the Indian Muslim from Kerala.

I wonder if he still goes back to his parents home to celebrate Chinese New Year? or maybe his parents have left this country for China already?

VK Lingam’s brother murdered!

August 8, 2010

correct, correct, correct

PETALING JAYA: Prominent lawyer Datuk V.K. Lingam is offering a RM50,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of two suspects who are believed to be involved in the death of his youngest brother.

The lawyer stated that his brother and sisters were deeply aggrieved and shocked by the death of their youngest sibling Rajendram Veluppillai, 52 who they affectionately call “Raj”.

“Raj was the youngest among seven of us and was a very religious person who loved to get involved in temple matters.

“My brother never married and had graduated from the University of Buckingham, United Kingdom with the Degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1993,” Lingam said in a press statement on Sunday.

He urged the police to apprehend the two remaining suspects believed to have been involved in the death of his brother and was prepared to help in their efforts.

“We, as a family, hereby offer a lump sum reward of RM50,000.00 to any person or persons who provides information to the police leading to the arrest of the 2 or any other suspects involved in the murder of Raj,” Lingam said.

After speaking to temple authorities at the Avdiar Muniswarar Hindu temple, in Bandar Puteri Puchong, Lingam also denied allegations that his brother had been stealing temple funds as reported in the media

“Temple authorities said Raj had been staying at the temple and assisting for the past two and half weeks.

“Only about five to 10 devotees come to the temple daily on average and the temple collection during this period was less than RM50 and even then the money is placed in a donation box which is handled by the temple treasurer,” Lingam explained.

Rajendram is believed to have died at 3am on Tuesday shortly after three men beat him up following an argument at a temple.

The victim managed to escape and drove his car to a petrol station about 1km away for help.

However, Rajendram collapsed and died shortly after relating to a worker there he was beaten up by several men.

Police had arrested a 30-year-old labourer and were looking for the other two more suspects aged 29 and 30.

During the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the controversial Lingam video clip in 2008, an application had been made for Rajendram to testify.

However, the commission decided it was unnecessary based on a statement he had submitted.

Unlawful Police or Citizen?

August 3, 2010

Well ISA was to many right thinking People and Muslims are “HARAM” according to Muslims, any person jailed without trial is against the Islamic teaching. Thus making the Rakyat “MARAH” when spelled backwards.

What about those people who supported ISA? Are they really practising what they preach? We have read many cases of people being thrown into Kamunting without giving them a trial or chance to defend themselves in this so called “democratic” Country like Malaysia. Families being broken, children being deprived of their father and neighbours who are not aware that it is this “draconian Law” that their neighbour are jailed and are NOT criminals and shy away from being friendly to his children and family. Some even labelled this people “criminals” when they knew that their fathers were actually spending time in jail because of ISA.

Remembered very well that the former Home Minister even have the cheek to tell us that they are thrown in Kamunting for their own “protection”. He was even voted in as an MP in Johore and i wonder what is his voters think about him or maybe they voted without thinking or being blinded by money?

Why NOT the police allow these peaceful people to spend just 15-20 minutes for this peaceful candle light vigil? BUT they chose to rough it out with these peaceful people for hours and until the next day as though our streets are basically “crime free”.

If they do that, many will thanked them and thus will slowly but surely gain back the trust of the People.

But too bad, because of some politicians, they have to act upon orders given by the higher “authorities” and when asked they themselves are in a blank or dare not even disclose who gave them the order.

Police force in Malaysia should not use the word “Diraja” which really bring shame to the Royalties without knowingly they are infact “raja DiJalan” arresting candle wielding people, people wearing black or yellow Tees BUT those parading cow head on the street are just fined rm1000.00 and even 4 pleaded NOT guilty were released without further questioning.

That is how brave and loyal our police force were sworn in to do in Malaysia.
