A Piece of Good to hear NEWS

AT least news like this make me smile.

He braved himself and thus rewarded.

Good job, my friend.


Brave cop gets his just reward - he is acting ASP now


Ang Weai Leoong

PUTRAJAYA: Despite being shot twice, police officer Ang Weai Leoong refused medical aid until he had arrested members of an armed robbery syndicate.

And yesterday, for his courage and putting duty before self, the former Chief Inspector with the Kuala Lumpur special investigation unit was promoted to acting Assistant Superintendent by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

The 31-year-old father of two was shot twice in both his legs when leading six officers in a raid at a condominium in Sungai Long on Nov 5 last year to bust the Ah Tok Gang, a syndicate that specialised in robbing luxury cars in the Klang Valley.

“Even in such a critical situation, he was still able to stand up, with the will to continue his duty, to arrest two members of the gang,” Musa said at the award-presentation ceremony here yesterday.

Ang suffered from broken bones and was bleeding profusely and was taken for medical treatment at the Kajang Hospital, he added.

Musa said Ang and his team should be given due recognition for their sacrifice and commitment.

Ang, who is still on medical leave, said he was thankful and proud for the recognition. “Criminals these days are very different. They are willing to do anything to escape from the police,” he said.

“However, I will not give up but will continue to work hard to improve the image of the police force.”

Ang’s wife Lim Koon Teem, who accompanied him, said she knew about her husband’s occupation when they first met seven years ago.

“It is his love for the country that I admire.”

Recalling the morning when she first heard of Ang’s injury, Lim said: “I was very glad that it was him (Ang) and not any of his colleagues who called me up and told me about the injury.”

She said she was worried and sad after visiting her husband at the hospital.

“However, I did not dare shed tears in front of him because that would make him feel bad.

“I went to some corner of the hospital to cry,” she recalled, adding that she was very proud of her husband’s commitment.

English Joke -

No wonder our DPM and Education Minister in recent days stress the importance of learning English. He probbaly got this e-mail as well.

Joke of the day. Hope it will light up your day.

A few days ago, Prime Minister Mori was given some Basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets president Barack Obama...

The instructor told Mori Prime Minister, when you shake hand with President Obama, please say 'how r u'.
Then Mr. Obama should say, 'I am fine, and you?' Now, you should say 'me too'. Afterwards we, translators, will do the work for you.'

It looks quite simple, but the truth is...

When Mori met Obama , he mistakenly said 'who r u?' (Instead of 'How r u?'.)

Mr. Obama was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor: 'Well, I'm Michelle's husband, ha-ha...'

Then Mori replied 'me too, ha-ha.. .'.

Then there was a long silence in the meeting room.

Too Good To Be True....But all a BLUFF

The MB haram story : Below is too good to be true. 5 months as CEO of the Perak State government, BN led government was able to bring in investment of RM9 billion for Perak. Wow.

Perak BN govt announces whopping RM9bil investment

IPOH, June 10 The Perak Barisan Nasional government has delivered on its claim that the state’s investment climate was still robust with the announcement of an enormous RM9bil venture to be undertaken by a South American multinational corporation.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir said today that the investment, which was to set up an iron ore distribution centre for Asia in Perak’s Manjung district, could possibly be one of the state’s largest to date.

“We have already reached the final stages of discussion and we estimate to sign the agreement by next week. We hope everything will go according to plan,” he said after meeting with the company’s representatives in his office here today.

Zambry said that the company was one of the world’s largest in the metal and mining industries and had a market capitalisation of more than RM100bil.

“They have chosen Perak because they say we are the gateway into Asia,” he said. “Furthermore, with our natural port, we have direct access to international waters.”

Zambry said that the RM9bil investment would be for the project’s first phase and the company would pump in a further RM5.6bil in the second and third phases.

“There will also be a total of at least 1,800 direct and indirect employment opportunities for our locals.

“Besides that, the company has also given its word that the project would have a positive spill-over effect for Perak with the creation of more downstream economic activities,” he said.

The centre, added Zambry, would be used to process imported iron ore into pellets before they are distribution across Asia.

“It will also be the company’s second largest such distribution centre after its base in South America,” he said.

A 1,300-acre site has already been earmarked for the project in Manjung, he added.

On the possible negative effects the project may have on the environment, Zambry said that both the state government and the company had taken note of that.

“The company is equally as concerned about environmental impact and has given its word that there would not be negative effects.

“In fact, the built-up size of the centre itself will only take up one third of the total acreage reserved for the project. The remaining land will be used as a buffer zone,” he said.

Meanwhile, Zambry hinted that this was not the last of the many foreign investments in the state.

“As I have mentioned before, I will be announcing them one by one. “There will be many more to come,” he said.

Recently, Zambry announced that the state had amassed some RM700mil in investments over the past three months.

He had also given his word that the BN government was investor-friendly and had promised the people that the current political instability in Perak had not negatively affected the state’s investment climate.

Now this is the truth.... What a shame. Lembu punya susu, sapi punya nama. What a stupid CEO

Zambry puts RM9 billion Vale deal at risk

By Leslie Lau
Consultant Editor

KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 – Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Kadir’s announcement yesterday of a whopping RM9 billion investment in Perak was premature and could jeopardise the deal with Brazil’s Vale, the world’s second largest mining company.

The Malaysian Insider understands the Vale’s management has not even received board approval. Perak DAP chairman Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham also slammed Zambry for what he described as a publicity stunt by the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

Vale could also face censure from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) where the company is listed over the premature announcement, even though the Perak mentri besar did not name the company.

Zambry said yesterday that the investment, which was to set up an iron ore distribution centre for Asia in Perak’s Manjung district, could possibly be one of the state’s largest to date.

Sources told The Malaysian Insider that the company had been in talks with the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state government for nearly a year before yesterday’s announcement by Zambry.

This was confirmed today by Ngeh, who was a senior executive councillor in Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin’s PR administration, which is still locked in a battle in the courts over control of the state.

“It must be put on record that the said company was in negotiations with the Pakatan Rakyat Perak state government before the latter was immorally, illegally and unconstitutionally overthrown by BN.

“I hope the BN state government will not be continuing its policy of announcing many multi million or billion ringgit projects to paint a good picture of the government,” Ngeh said in a statement today.

Zambry also claimed yesterday that the talks with Vale were in the final stages and that an agreement was set to be signed next week.

However, The Malaysian Insider has learned that Vale has no plans yet for any definitive announcement.

Sources in New York also confirmed that the company had been originally in talks with Nizar and had only recently met Zambry.

It is understood that there are still a number of hurdles to sealing the deal, including land approval and other matters.

Ngeh, who had been a party to the earlier talks with Vale, also posed a number of questions for Zambry regarding the deal.

These include concerns over whether the land in Manjung had already been converted for industrial use from its current tourism use status, and whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report had been completed.

There are also question marks as to whether an agreement for the acquisition of the 1,300 acres of land in question had been completed and whether the plot was state-owned or privately held.

“The Perak Pakatan Rakyat Government has a policy to announce the implementation of projects only if it has been finalised and ready to take off as we hold firmly to our principle that the people must not be misled.

“Many have lost money investing in lands surrounding projects announced by BN which did not materialise,” said Ngeh.

NO Unity Government OR Unity talk with UMNO

This opinion is mine and mine alone. However this opinion is concluded upon after attending many dinners, luncheons and meetings with Church people, friends and relatives marriages and birthdays, business associate meetings and the like of it have nevertheless concluded that any Unity talks or forming a unity government with UMNO will be a regrettable decision by PAS.

Though I am in no position to advise PAS but any discussion whether politically or religiously or for the good of Malays in general will be the end of PAS especially so when PAS is now having good support of the Chinese and Indians in the recent by-elections. However if PAS so desire to discuss racial and religious unity with other organisations even if such organisation is UMNO-BN linked, then that is PAS absolute right as a political body.

PAS should not take the support of the non Muslim lightly. In fact PAS should have known that the non Malays voted PAS as their representative in Parliament or State Assembly is because the non Malays are just so fed up with UMNO-BN. MCA, Gerakan, MIC lost badly because of UMNO. The non Malays voted for PAS because they see PAS as corrupt free, a party that stresses on integrity and transparency. The non Malays voted for PAS because they believe in the Islamic value of fairness. The non Malays voted for PAS to replace UMNO. Not forming an alliance with UMNO.

As such if PAS make a political decision to form a pact with UMNO, then I must say it will also be the end of PAS in the 13th general election.

So I now hope that PAS should just forget about any unity talk or forming a Unity Government with UMNO for the sake and good of all Malaysians.


No.2 says Tok Guru is not PAS

By Asrul Hadi Abdullah Sani

SHAH ALAM, June 7 – He may not be aware of the irony but when Nasharudin Mat Isa, deputy president of PAS, said Nik Aziz Nik’s views do not represent the party, it is akin to the Islamist party rejecting its soul as the Tok Guru is PAS spiritual leader.

Nasharudin was, of course, referring to Datuk Seri Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s speech at the muktamar last night, when he rubbished talk of a unity government.

“That is the opinion of Tok Guru, but in the organisation we take the party’s stance. Now there isn’t actually any concrete decision made by the party with regards Umno. The issue will be decided by the party,” he said.

Speaking at a ceramah held in conjunction with the party’s 55th muktamar (general assembly), Nik Aziz said those who speak of co-operation with Umno are apparently oblivious to the rivalry between these two arch-rivals throughout their existence.

Nasharudin added that PAS should not “shut the door” on having a dialogue with Umno even though Umno is PAS’s political enemy. He also continued defending the unity talks and said it was a necessity for the betterment of the nation.

“There are many current issues which need to be settled and answered. We think that being a major political organisation, we can contribute by trying to make an impact on the nation,” he added.

Nasharudin further defended the president’s engagement policy and stressed the importance of the party having an open attitude in order to remain relevant in the nation’s politics.

“We have an open attitude when it comes to holding discussions and we did not specify with whom. If MIC wants to discuss with us, we do not have any problem. If the problematic PPP wants to discuss and join Pakatan Rakyat then we welcome them to join,” he explained.

Nasharudin also confirmed that he is on good terms with defeated PAS deputy presidential contender Datuk Husam Musa.

“He was the vice president of the party for two years when I was the deputy and we have worked well together. There were committees that he headed and committees that I headed,” he said.

Nasharudin commented that it is up to him to recommend a position for Husam in the party’s central committee and that the party will meet on Wednesday to discuss this very issue.
