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.

OTK showdown OCT 10. Will democracy survived? Reformed needed

Looking at the news surrounding PKFZ, Chua Soi Lek (CSL) and MCA. It seems the tussles for power and supremacy keeps building up. Excerpts from the STAR captured my attention.

Ong Tee Keat has choosen the right move to agreed with the EGM. He has uphold what he believed is truth. With truth at hand, he has even stick his ministrial post at stake in unveiling the PKFZ controversial issues by making it public. The public needs strong leaders that take care of the people’s interest at heart and steps in to defend to correct the wrongdoings. Despite pressures from all quarters, in my opinion, the truth shall prevails with democracy to works at its best. We do not need leaders that are no brainer and no guts to speak up when they are required to. With the coming EGM, i believe OTK with the silent majority will do the correct steps to reform MCA and give OTK the renew mandate to save the party.

Well, certain group  such as  CSL’s group trying hard to get him reinstated, personally i wonder, do they do this for the party,  the overall chinese population, malaysians at large, or for CSL?  We will need delegates to vote with conscience.

Noticed the March 2008 election has opened the eyes o fthe Malaysians, it also shows that BN and PKR either one can be the choice of the people if they adopt a government having the people at heart. The people wanted less corruptions,wrongdoings and swift actions to handle it. Personally with stable government, the majority of peole won’t suffer but a corrupt and badly managed will destroy the country.

We are all born under the BN government, as over the years failure to cross-check of certain individuals has tarred its image. Whereby the new PKR government has taken over 5 states, noticed they are the same group of people crossed from BN and the behaviour are childish. Not befitting to hold post. Therefore for the sake of country, uphold the basis of constitution and remember all the reps that are elected are need to sworn to protect all Malaysians of all race, colours and religions.

Let’s take some polls here:

EGM for MCA within 30 days on issues including PKFZ

Looks like MCA’s struggle has reached another level, the party President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said “It is to allow members to deliver a verdict on the decisions made by the MCA leadership – whether on its renewal and rejuvenation efforts, on disciplinary cases or in the handling of the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) issue.

Do you think Ong Tee Keat is handling the MCA issues well?

MCA Divisions Elections Heated Up With Challengers Against Incumbents

Spoken to a couple of my close buddies, after the March 08 General elections, the rakyat starts talking and dominates the subjects of politics in the country. Avery interesting situation, finally political consiousness.

Then the talk of malaysia’s political party elections, that the MCA (Malaysian Chinese Association), the second largest component party in the BN. I noticed after MCA President Ong Ka Ting and his deputy Tan Sri Chan Kong Choy announced of their decisions not to seek re-election, the challenges is intense with more younger group challenging the old guards that has sit pretty for a long long time in their positions which is detrimental to the party.

It is reported in the Star, that 79 out of the 191 divisions in MCA faces challenges, which an increase above 40%  showing the need to rejuvenate the party with new and young leaders. I sincerely hope the new and young challengers will win, as i noticed the younger people are more vocal and dare to speak their mind. For those incumbent that has sitting down nicely and just holding their positions, it is time these cowards incumbents that are doing nothing and nothing politically except on socialising, it is time to go away and let the young ones a chance.

In my humble opnion, these people needs a strong leaders, not those that keeps hoarding on power forever and do social work only. Remember the people elected you to serve, serve and serve. The Rakyat’s priority is important and training them to be vocal and speak up. If the delegates are blind, stupid and cowards to give their votes to the UNdeserving, then the leaders which their elected representative could be a bunch of fools that do not know how to differentiate what is right and wrong. We must help these people to choose , young,  able people to Speak out loud and clear withour fear . and not forgetting able to voice out and able -to do policy making and debate. If they can’t do these, then why need to be a leader….. might as well roll up, die and rot without doing nothing these people needs a leader. Do you agree?

Let Malaysia have strong new leaders for a better Malaysia!

MCA Talents Race To Raise The Bar And Issued Challenge To Debate

I’ve found this article on MYLIVINGWALL after reading in the STAR news report that MCA’s nomination for Division has begun on 22nd July 2008 at the whole country with 79 divisions out of 191 divisions seeing contests for the top post. It shows that more than 40% of MCA delegates wanted changes which is interesting compared to yester-years. No longer are the keeping hush-hush MCA as a political party. Lets see the young people stage a challenge Viva ! democracy shall prevails, let’s hope the challengers wins and let the incumbants think hard, that will helped pave way for new blood and ideas coming in! Keep up the good work and Malaysia will be safe. the rakyat will be grateful if all poltical difference can be set aside and work as a new team, either BN or the PKR.

Kelantan Regent’s remark uncalled for, are we not part of Malaysia?

The recent remarks by the Tengku Mahktota Tengku Mahkota of Kelantan Tengku Mohammad Faris Petra Sultan Ismail Petra that the special rights and privileges of the Malays should not be questioned at his opening address at a Malay unity gathering which was held in conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul celebration at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday raised eyebrows. The recent GE results showed that the rakyat wanted equality but not double standard. How can he just read the text given to him without scanning through?

Kudos for MCA making a statement to reinterate its stand based on article 153Article 153(7) which states that nothing in this Article shall operate to deprive or authorise the deprivation of any person of any right or privilege,” in a statement by MCA President Ong Ka Ting.

Read more of the statement released in the STAR today and NST. All Malaysian by now should know their rights enshrined in the constitution. Please equip yourself with the knowledge.

Save MCA? Why Not!?!

With everyone’s finger pointing at each other for the dismay performance of the BN at the last election, the dust are still not settled yet. Look at these people, they do not need to reinvent the wheel, but just to uphold the principles stated strongly in our constitution, Rukun Negara and love the country. Where’s the values and principles?

Of the BN coalition, the only party which i personally noticed that has principles and values despite being highly misunderstood and used as punching bag are none other than MCA itself. Take a look at this article that is written at MYLIVINGWALL by a MCA Youth Leader that speaks out loud and clear on his viewpoint. This should be the way our political arena should go, speak from the heart and not the emotions.
