MON, 06 SEP 2010 14:02

Sambu lingam, via e-mail

Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad in a statement (FMT Sept 4, 2010) finally admitted that he and the Umno government intentionally discriminated against innocent non Bumiputra students by denying their educational rights as enshrined in the Constitution.

He said: “If we use the merit system , half of the university students (Bumiputeras) don’t qualify…” Read the rest of this entry »

Blog yOur Mind says,

What a good reflection from a dear friend of mine on interpretation of our recent huha on the word “GOD”.

It’s a good joke and also help certain people to interpret and understand the meaning of words and who can used it.

Will this article help to diffuse the tension created in our harmonious country since our 1957 Independence Day.

I hope this article below will help to diminish the anger stirred among certain group of people. Let us live in peace and love. A country that we build together for the future of our children, irrelevant of race or religion.

Good joke for year 2010

A man came home from work and his children ran to him and called out ‘Ayah! Ayah!’.

His neighbor got very upset and said to him, “Can you please tell your children not to call you ‘Ayah’?”

The man asked, “Why?”

The neighbor retorted, “Because my children call me ’Ayah’ too. They might get confused and mistake you to be their father.”

Then the man told his neighbour, are you not a shame to say that your children do not know who is their ‘Ayah’. So you are saying by using the word ‘Ayah’, your children will call me ‘ayah’ too without knowing who is their father.

The neighbour said yes, only i should use the word ‘Ayah’.

The man said, then there is something wrong in what you are teaching your children.. They are not sure and do not know who is their ‘Ayah’.

“It’s not just monetary,” says Ariff. “It goes beyond dollars and cents. [Emigration] is not confined to any particular group. It’s everyone; even Malay [Malaysians] are leaving.”

By Ding-Jo Ann, The Nut Graph

WITH the recent attack on churches, a Catholic school and a Sikh gurdwara, migration is likely to be on the minds of some Malaysians. Despite government assurances that “everything is under control”, diminishing respect for rights as demonstrated by the “Allah” issue has naturally caused consternation among educated Malaysians.

“If you know the power of giving , you would not let a meal pass without sharing it in some way…..”

The recent spate of emails deriding some of the older Singapore political leaders show that, like anywhere else in this world, people’s memories are short! What the ‘old guards’ have done for Singapore is nothing short of a miracle. The grand old man deserves our respect; the younger political leaders would do well to learn from him!

The writer is a nephew of Dr Mahathir (former prime minister of Malaysia).

 By Ahmad Mustapha

Singapore’s Minister Mentor, Lee Kuan Yew, who was Singapore’s founding father, has always been very direct in his comments. This was the man who outsmarted the communists in Singapore (with the innocent help of Malaya then and the willing help of the British) and who later outwitted the British and outpaced Malaysia in all spheres.

The Clear And Present Danger

If the Doomsday prediction never comes true, New Zealand will remain as picturesque after a hundred years, with cows and goats roaming all over the country sparesely populated by humans.

A hundred years later, Singapore ‘s foundation will remain rock solid. The tiny city-state will continue to lure new immigrants, and many new-generation Singaporeans will see their lineages traced back to those of migrants. Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysia: The Feud

How Mahathir and Anwar became embroiled in a clash that threatens to send Malaysia into upheaval

by Sheri Prasso and Mark Clifford in Kuala Lumpur, with Joyce Barnathan in Hong Kong.

To Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who has a passion for flying and sailing, Malaysia’s annual air and boat show on the island of Langkawi was an event he hated to miss–even as his nation stumbled through an economic crisis. So Mahathir decided to hold the December 3, 1997, meeting of the Malaysian Cabinet on the island, instead of in the capital of Kuala Lumpur. Read the rest of this entry »
