Malaysia-Today’s corridors of power column total fabrication of lies by writer I Love Malaysia with the heading the bald truth about how one bn partys ventured into cyberspace and hit a wall

I’ve read with utmost disgust on the article by the the most fabricated lies ever by a netizen using the guise of I Love Malaysia at Malaysiatoday website. Apparently this particular writer, I Love Malaysia , is being paid solely to write without knowing the truth. How can one promote truth and justice when there are self-interest at hand. Hereby demand that this writer checked his facts right before harming any people especially when it is done at the expenses at hitting out MyLivingWall, Ms AL and Bangsar Group. We strongly opposed the article as we know the real truth behind. The writer also spelt the former President Ka Ting name wrongly. It is stupidity at work.

Also to expose these invisible cyber crooks sprouting lies, demand that the writer. I Love Malaysia in his column at MalaysiaToday reveal his funder and motives truthfully to the world.

Article by I Love Malaysia:
 
Most people thought BN component parties headed into cyberspace only after the watershed March 8 2008 general election which saw the opposition make unprecedented gains, largely due to the primary and secondary reach of the New Media such as blogs and news portals like Malaysia-Today and Malaysiakini.
 
Largely, BN parties have just left the starting mark in the race towards cyber information dominance while Pakatan Rakyat parties are already miles ahead. But one party had actually attempted to reach out earlier to Netizens even before anyone had the faintest idea that March 8 would take place. But of course, almost no one knew of MCA’s efforts in the form of mylivingwall.com because it turned out to be a disaster mired in corruption, a sex scandal and sheer incompetence.
 
The idea of mylivingwall was first hatched in 2007 out of one woman’s frustration with her superior. AL Ho was working in INSAP, MCA’s think tank but everyone knew she could not get along with her boss, another Iron Lady, Song Fui K, formerly from the American Chamber of Commerce. With both having strong characters, their daily arguments got too much and Ms Ho decided it was time to part ways.
 
But she ain’t gonna just call it a day in MCA without first extracting her pound of flesh from the oh-so-generous MCA president then, Ong Ka Thing. A window of opportunity presented itself when Ka Thing appointed Fu Ah Kiow to head the publicity bureau. That’s when she sold the idea of setting up a portal called mylivingwall.com to the MCA president through Ah Kiow. And Ah Kiow, being Chan Kong Choy’s right-hand man, can just about lead Ka Thing to leap off KLCC if he wanted to. Ka Thing was sold to the idea faster than the dotcom bust of the early 2000s.
 
But then, Ms Ho also wanted a good deal for her severance-package-cum-platinum-handshake. And she had a secret weapon: the then MCA legal bureau head Dato’ Leong Tang Chong, with whom she shared a relationship that went far beyond work. The bald lawyer with close ties with Ka Thing helped her draft a contract with MCA which made her CEO of The Living Wall Sdn Bhd, with MCA HQ having to grant RM800,000 seed money and a MONTHLY retainer of RM65,000 for three years.
 
And before one could hear “ta da!”, MCA’s venture to turn over the notoriously anti-establishment Netizens was born, out of one woman’s frustration with work, with the help of a long-time lover, in a business arrangement that reeks of high-handedness.
 
And the “portal” itself? It’s just a one-woman effort to compile bits of information from all over cyberspace. No one runs around interviewing Ministers or braving the FRU during illegal rallies, much less brave the crowd in ceramahs. And Ong Ka Thing was banking on this woman to turn things around in the face of seething anger from the urban middle-class Chinese. By the time March 8 took place, it was already too late. Living Wall hit a wall, pun intended.
 
With the Living Wall’s 3-year contract expiring in February 2010, Ms Ho’s fortune does not seem to be all that bright. Neither is the luck of her lover boy Leong Tang Chong, who was removed as MCA legal bureau head shortly after the October 10 EGM for plotting against the president. Baldy and Ms Ho go back a long way and are part of the Bangsar Group, named after their power base, and are known for being English-speaking MCA activists, in a largely Mandarin-speaking party.
 
But really the person more worried about the MCA not renewing Living Wall’s contract than Ms Ho is Leong Tang Chong. Having given up his legal practice years ago, which he made a fortune from the generosity of Ling Liong Sik and Ong Ka Thing, Bald Tang Chong would have no more income if Living Wall tumbles like the Berlin Wall exactly 20 years ago. Tang Chong has just been redesignated as The Star chairman to an ordinary board member in a move that leaves him one leg at the Star exit (http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/11/6/business/5055017&sec=business).
 
Of late, Tang Chong, who made no attempt to hide his estranged relations with his wife, was often seen in MCA treasurer-general Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng’s office in Cheras lobbying not to be chopped off as director in Huaren, the party’s investment arm as well as in Wisma MCA Sdn Bhd. Having loaned RM170,000 from his lover for the new Maserati, Tang Chong did not want to be caught deep in debt. Hence, he agressively pushed for the renewal of Ms Ho’s lop-sided contract.
 
Towards this end, Tang Chong even cut a deal with Liow Tiong Lai. In return for declaring Ong Tee Keat’s EGM illegal, the botak, as he is also known, will be given the post of MCA Federal Territory deputy chairman, a much more glamorous post than the legal bureau head which he has held since Ling Liong Sik’s days. On top of that, the Living Wall will continue to be as erect as he is whenever he is with its CEO.
 
But as the MCA leadership impasse drags on, the Living Wall, Ong Ka Thing’s baby, is stillborn while Pakatan’s ones are trudging far ahead. (Just do a whois domain search online and one can see that Living Wall is owned by Ms Ho (complete with her mobile number!!) and has its address in Wisma MCA KL). And BN parties like MCA can lead sites like Living Wall to the sledgehammer, just like how the fall of the Berlin Wall brought hope and prosperity. Otherwise, the only thing “living” insofar as the next general election is concerned is false hopes and illusions.

A repeat of 1998? Anwar’s arrested today! Arrest warant for Raja Petra as well!

Just barely a few days i’ve posted in my blog saying the country’s political outlook gets more funnier, ridiculous and now the repeat of the famous black eye incident where DSAI (Datuk Seri Dr Anwar Ibrahim) been bundled by police and detained. Is there anything new here on the story line? Read this in STAR, MalaysiaKini, SinChew , Nurul Izzah’s blog and NST

Following this, Malaysia Kini reported that RPK (Raja Petra) author of MalaysiaToday Blog has ben issued arrest warrant. What a good timing!

The people of Malaysia are getting fed-up on the excessive politics and the politicians are not concentrating on the economy. Come to the next GE the people might not want to vote at all. In view of all these, where are the real saviours of malaysia? We are having one group the current government and the next one the government in waiting, well sad to say both also behaves like children, we need another stronger group that will protect the Malaysians, irregardless of race, identity or culture. A truly Malaysia for the people of Malaysia. We need to get the politicians to crack their brains and get on to work for the people that voted that in. We need to give them KPI (Key performance Index) to gauge their efficiency. Do u agree with me people?

Political drama in malaysia – a child play and insulting the intelligence

After the General Election in March 2008, the Malaysian political scene has dominated with all the mud-slinging and shit resufacing with the politicians and parties dominates the headlines. It is good to see the sudden awareness in politics compared to yester-years of people ignorance. All thanks to the power of internet.

Now can we sit down in a moment, are these BN & Pakatan Rakyat are really doing their job now? More than 100 days , yet still no sign of improvement… while PM Badawi struggles in his job with mounting pressure as his popularity drops. He has since announced his intention to step down in 2010. Read this in the NST. Can he really perform up to the mark within this 24 months? i guess the PM needs to change his bunch of silly advisors that has got him into this mess earlier.

As i said, the bickering betweeen all these BN & PKR are like a bunch of silly child play. Why can’t they concentrate and build the economy, improve the social condition and safety to the people and political environment? All these are wasting time and scared the investors away. With the high era of world economy under pressure due to high price and building inflationary pressurise the people in the daily life. Do something or don’t be in office if all these can’t be address. This statement is address to all the politicians and political parties that are being elected to office.

What do you all think about this. Please share your views and comment people!

Has Malaysia and its people forgotten the National Principles (Rukun Negara)

After the 12th General Election, more and more people including politicians and political parties both Barisan National and Pakatan Rakyat DAP-PKR-PAS are looking for a solution to make Malaysia a better place, democratic ,fair and people are safe. With the internet boom, everyone is relying on Malaysiakini, MalaysiaToday, Rocky Bru and etc for alternative news to listened to the champions of rights voicing out. In fact we do not have to look far to rejuvenate. Just uphold the principles The Rukunegara or sometimes Rukun Negara (Malay for “National Principles”) is a philosophy and national ideology — the de facto Malaysian pledge of allegiance — was instituted by royal proclamation on Merdeka Day, 1970, in reaction to a serious race riot known as the May 13 Incident which occurred in 1969.(source from: Wikipedia)

For those young Malaysians which never heard this before, read below the rukun negara which is recited by students at the National school or sekolah kebangsaan every monday after singing the national anthem. So tell me where is the need to reinvent the wheel. come on wake up people!!! Let’s all unite together and uphold the principles and Malaysia is safe!

Poem for Shahrizat in the coming election circulating in Lembah Pantai

Received this poem (pantun) in Malay via sms circulating in Lembah Pantai for Dato Seri Shahrizat for the coming general election. It sounds like this:

“Paip rumah bocor Shahrizat pasang, 

Banjir satu negara dialah datang,

Mulut MP bocor pun Shahrizat pasang,

Undilah Kak Ijat cadangan yang matang.” 

 That shows the people in Lembah Pantai still needs Shahrizat as a caring MP.

Malaysia’s General Election campaign is getting hotter, are we selecting candidates based on merits or people?

With one week before D-Day, Malaysians will cast their votes to decide who will run the country for the next term. Tactics and warfare are quickly deployed by both the BN (National Front) and Opposition to outdo each other to get the voters to make the wise decision on who will best represent them in the government.

After looking at the list of candidates field by both group of BN & Opposition, i wonder the candidates (calon) that are being put in to field against each other, are they capable? Have a passion to serve the people or it is just been used as a puppet to serve others. Malaysians must decide that the candidates that we are going to choose to represent us must have a set of good track records are able to withstand pressure from the ever changing political landscapes. Are we going to choose the rep based on party or emotions?

In my humble opinion, we must make a choice based on issues not on people.This is a chinese saying which stands true over 5,000 years of history.  The rational behind this logic will help whoever is good and willing to serve will continue to serve and the support will come on its own. If we based on people, we can get emotional and might be distorted by unsrupulous people that have their agenda and in the end the poor citizens will lose out again.

Take for example, in the Lembah Pantai constituency, the challenge between incumbent Dato Seri Sharizat and Nurul Izzah. One from BN and one from Keadilan. Who will one choose? I would prefer to see track records here. Shahrizat has been going around her kawasan diligently and has so far delivered what she has promised and the people there love and adore her. For Nurul Izzah, she’s a nice girl in my viewpoint. Can she deliver? or is she contesting on behalf of her father, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim who will make her a full puppet? hmmm poor shahrizat, it is not even a fair fight for her. Poor izzah have to take instructions from her dad but know nothing bout political system.

In Kelana Jaya, the candidate Loh Gwo Burne as reported by the STAR few days ago, he said he will lose 2 votes in the place. One is V.K.Lingam, and the other one himself. Why himself because he is not even register as a voter. I don’t think we need a wakil rakyat that do not even know when is the deadline to register as a voter. He can’t even take care of himself, then how to take care of the people?

hmmm, let us ponder this while i go for my dinner. Tomorrow will be exciting.
