TQ YAB PM Datuk Seri Najib and YAB TDM for understanding us, the bloggers

April 24, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, April 24 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak promised Malaysians today that his administration would never censor the Internet. Speaking at the 1st Malaysian-ASEAN Regional Bloggers Conference here this morning, the Prime Minister declared that Malaysia has one of the most liveliest and one of the freest, “if not most free”, blogospheres in the world.

The government does not fear bloggers but wants to be part of them and know their views even if it is constructive criticism, says Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak. “I believe this relationship will be an important relationship based on mutual respect. We might not agree all the time but we cannot be disagreeable.

Tun Dr Mahathir and Winston Churchill are my heroes but …

November 24, 2010

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and Heroism and Nationalism is a thing purely depend on beholder’s eyes and perception.

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

One nation’s hero is another’s criminal

One nation’s martyr or hero may be another’s murderer.

You see, Maha Bandoola was regarded by some as a tyrant murderer of millions of Ahong Shans from Manipur.

General Aung San collaborated with Japan to drive out British and later revolted the Japanese and coordinated with British. All Myanmars never see him as a flip-flop traitor but regarded as the highly revered Greatest National Hero.

Daryn, be proud of your plural ancestry

November 22, 2010

I hope and pray that you would be patriotic and surely, not a “pendatangbecause you are born here. After all, many Malaysians, including politicians, can proudly trace their roots to faraway lands like India and Pakistan. We all know very well that some try to conceal their ethnic history, preferring to emphasise on their new identities, sometimes for political and economic expediency.

It was heartening to read about Raja Zarith Sofea Sultan Idris Shah declaring that her ancestral roots were from Sumatra and the Peranakan Chinese. The consort of the Sultan of Johor went on to say that the use of the term pendatang to describe non-bumiputras was “hurtful and ignorant”. It was shameful, she added, for apparently educated and mature individuals to use such terms or suggest that fellow Malaysians go back to where they came from. Raja Zarith, who was speaking at the Voices of Peace, Conscience and Reason (PCORE) forum in Kuala Lumpur last week, stressed on the importance of recognising the diversity of Malaysian society, brought about by centuries of inter-racial and inter-faith marriages and communication.

The CEO of the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) cracks whip over civil service

Extracts from the Source_MKini:Pemandu cracks whip over civil service by Aidila Razak & S Pathmawathy

Minister in the Prime Minister‘s Department Idris Jala inn his role as the ‘salesperson’ and driver of the Prime Minister’s framework of change, the CEO of the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) uses charts and analogy to respond to issues. While at times convincing, his ‘motivational speaker/corporate trainer’ style also feels like a walk in the clouds, Idris is quick to point out that Pemandu’s everyday work is solidly on the ground.
