When you vote for opposition party..

1. Karpal Singh arrogantly questioned Kuasa Raja-raja and Sultan.
2. Anwar Ibrahim couldn't bring himself to bersumpah that he did not molest his assistant.
3. Teresa Kok - starting to create issues related to Azan.
4. What is PAS doing? They have to support all the three actions above. Is this an Islamic party? UMNO tak Islam, UMNO kafir. What are they doing now? Can't they question themselves on Anwar's inability to bersumpah? Menyokong saja Karpal Singh, menyokong saja Teresa Kok. Do they really think DAP would agree to a negara Islam let alone Hudud?? Then what are they doing right now? Hypocrite. Being hypocrite demi hasad dengki dan dendam on UMNO, sanggup memangku hal-hal yang terang-terang non-Islamic, mencabar kedaulatan Sultan and Raja-raja Melayu. This is PAS. Hypocrite.

Hypocrite definition :a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. -

That, to list a few.

Will we stand and watch our country falls into the hands of these people? Don't we see the possibilities of kuasa raja-raja and sultan dihapuskan in the future when these people run the country? Will we be like Singapore? No more azan. And what about Islam as agama rasmi negara? Perlembagaan negara akan dirombak if these people take charge.

Both parties have their issues, none is the ultimate. It is a quest to vote for the party who will cause less damage to the country, to us. Vote wisely.

In his defense.

Seks: Ahli PKR dakwa diperangkap


IPOH 23 Sept. – Seorang ahli Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) yang pernah ditahan Badan Pencegah Rasuah (BPR) bersama Exco Kerajaan Negeri Perak berhubung satu kes rasuah baru-baru ini mengaku membuat hubungan seks dengan seorang wanita China.

Fairul Azrim Ismail, 30, bagaimanapun mendakwa dia telah diperangkap oleh BPR dan seorang individu yang dikenali sebagai Mohamad Imran Abdullah.

Fairul Azrim mengaku melakukan seks dengan wanita itu tetapi mendakwa dia tidak pernah meminta rasuah atau habuan seks.

Ahli PKR itu membuat pengakuan tersebut dalam surat aduannya yang diserahkan kepada pegawai Jabatan Agama Islam Perak (JAIP) di Kompleks Islam Perak di sini hari ini.

Fairul Azrim merupakan salah seorang yang ditahan BPR Ogos lalu berhubung skandal rasuah dan seks membabitkan projek membangunkan tanah seluas 36 hektar bernilai RM180 juta di Seri Iskandar dekat sini.

Dalam surat aduannya, Fairul Azrim mendakwa, pada 14 Ogos lalu, semasa dalam perjalanan ke Permatang Pauh, Pulau Pinang, dia bersama rakannya Zul Hassan dan Ruslan Sahat telah singgah di Hentian Rehat dan Rawat Kuala Kangsar untuk bertemu dengan Mohamad Imran yang membawa bersama tiga wanita yang dikatakan berasal dari China.

Katanya, Mohamad Imran kemudian membawa mereka pergi ke Batu Feringghi, Pulau Pinang dan menginap di Tingkat 4, Sri Sayang Apartment.

“Saya telah diberikan seorang wanita China oleh Mohammad Imran dan pada malam tersebut saya telah melakukan hubungan seks dengan wanita itu di dalam sebuah bilik di Sri Sayang Apartment.

“Semasa dalam soal siasat saya telah diberitahu oleh pegawai BPR, perlakuan seks kami bertiga telah dirakam oleh BPR,” katanya dalam surat aduan itu.

Rakannya, Zul Hassan yang merupakan Ahli Majlis Daerah Perak Tengah turut membuat laporan kepada JAIP tetapi tidak mengedarkan salinan surat aduannya kepada wartawan.

Pada 25 Ogos lalu, Zul dan Ruslan yang merupakan Juruteknik Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak (PKNP) didakwa terlibat dalam skandal rasuah yang membabitkan seks manakala Fairul tidak didakwa.

Kes itu turut melibatkan dua anggota Exco Kerajaan Negeri Perak dan seorang bekas Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) yang didakwa meminta dan menerima rasuah wang.

Dalam surat aduan itu juga, Fairul yang dilepaskan oleh BPR dengan ikat jamin pada 21 Ogos lalu turut meminta JAIP menyiasat dan mengambil tindakan ke atas orang tertentu yang telah memfitnah, menghina dan menganiayanya.

“Saya membuat laporan ini kerana telah difitnah oleh Pengarah BPR Perak, Samsiah Abu Bakar dan pegawai-pegawai agensi itu yang mengatakan saya meminta rasuah wang dan seks.

“Mohamad Imran telah menganjur dan menggalakkan saya berbuat maksiat dengan membekalkan seorang wanita China,” ujarnya.

Sementara itu, Zul yang ditemui sebaik mengadakan pertemuan dengan pegawai JAIP di sini enggan memperincikan kandungan surat aduannya kepada JAIP itu.

Ditanya sama ada dia turut melakukan hubungan seks, Zul berkata: “Tidak mengaku tidak boleh, dia (BPR) ada gambar.''

Katanya, dakwaan BPR bahawa dia dan dua rakannya meminta perempuan China daripada Mohamad Imran adalah tidak benar.

“Kita tak minta, tak cari, Mohamad Imran yang hantar. Serupa juga kalau orang bagi sedekah, awak tak terima ke sedekah itu?’’ ujarnya.

Turut mengiringi mereka berdua ialah Ketua Wanita PKR, Zuraida Kamaruddin yang juga Ahli Parlimen Ampang dan bekas ADUN Bota, Kapten (B) Usaili Alias.

Habih mulia lah tu. Dah buat maksiat lagi mau salahkan org lain 'menggalakkan' dia buat maksiat. Depan tuhan nnt dia nk cakap mcm tu lah gamaknya. Pastu to strengthen his defense, tambah pulak kata tak boleh nk tolak, terpaksa menerima maksiat tu sbb tu sama mcm sedekah. Punya la mangkuk. Ada ka. Sigh, fairul azrim ooii..apa kes la hang nih.

Ode to Siti Mariam

2007 and it was the Penang Bridge run day, held on the same weekend as the Japan GT in Sepang. I remember me wondering then, how am I supposed to go to Japan GT 2008 if these two events are scheduled on the same weekend. Lucky, 2008 Penang Bridge Marathon was cancelled this year.

For the first time, the marathon introduced a 'Fun Run' category, which saw 21,399 participants amounted in total from..i don't know..the usual less than 15,000 participants, i bet, as some 8,000 people were contributed from the Fun Run category. It was a really happening day, which started as early as 4.30am for us. For all of us who are frequent users of the Penang bridge, i personally label it as having a notorious traffic scene and you can never really predict a traffic jam even during weekends or 12mid nite. It was a Fun Run alright, some of the participants carried along their digital SLR cameras, I mean, who would've 'thunk' you would be strolling along the whole stretch of the notorious penang bridge until USM Minden entrance, taking pictures, sceneries and all. The weather was nice, the sun wasn't too hot, we strolled along and we didn't sweat as much as in the sauna. So it was a nice and pleasant experience altogether.

After the "run", a friend mentioned of another friend who was then hospitalized in Lam WahEe private in Penang. We made a short visit, and I was introduced to Mariam. She was friendly and we greeted each other like we were no strangers. Most of my social friends are from my previous company, although some of them are newbies hired after I left, I have still managed to create new social circles around them. But I guess me and Mariam, we might have had a brief chance of working under the same roof as we were chatting and acknowledging each other's names.

Tho appeared to be weak, she managed to smile and talked about her first ordeal in accepting cancer and surgeries. It started off of a condition she thought was just constipation. Little did she realize that it had been a full month since the last time she moved her bowels. I am not sure if there was any pains that triggered her to go for a check up, but the outcome was devastating, a tested cell showed positive of cancer in her colon and she had to go for an immediate surgery. First surgery was fine a few days before, but tests still needed to be done. She had a bag with a part of her colon in it hanged outside her belly. We learned that there will be a couple more surgeries and chemotherapy indefinitely. Strange tho the conversation revolved around cancer and surgeries, the aura surrounding us was pleasant. I remember her telling us that she learned from one of the attending docs that there is a patient who is so positive to live, he actually went scuba diving with his colon hanged outside his body in a bag. She was not fully vibrant but she was optimistic about healing, that, we can tell.

Once in a while as I picked up friends for lunch, we would meet at the vendor lobby entrance. We would have a brief chat of ,"hi-hey, hows life, how u doin" and we'd had some short laughs and plenty of positive auras exchanged. Friends said she walked slowly, sometime looked pale, but she had always been optimist about healing. Work resumed as usual, lunch dates and all. Tho she'd feel bad about having to leave work for her chemo sessions but she could be more passionate about going to work compare to us healthy ones.

I will always remember that the day i walked together with thousands and thousands of others in white t-shirt on Penang Bridge, was the day i met Mariam, whom has so far in my eyes had shown a strong courage in living through cancer. Since the Penang Bridge run day, she had gone through a constant chemotherapy to kill off the cancer cells. One year after that, as of last week, she underwent a final surgery, went into a comma and finally succumb today morning, Tuesday, 17th September 2008. 28 years old and fell in her battle for survival thru cancer. But with grace.

May God rest and bless her soul. May things smooth on her in the underworld and may she is always in peace. Al-Fatihah.

My sis's new NoteBook

Snippet : It was a long weekend and we had a little family gathering. My bro and sis came back, man, was I excited. Distance makes the hearts grow fonder.

We were surveying for a new laptop for my sis. Apparently, my good ol' pc wasn't working properly. I realized a little too late that the old building of the dorm needed a voltage regulator for electronic devices, so currently, the pc's ps/2 and usb ports are not functioning. I detest to think of how else the pc is affected. I will check on it, one day, sometime this week.

Anyways, three of us, me+my bro and my sis went off for a day of outing to buy a new laptop. Prior to that my bro and I made a courtesy visit to the local pc fair last two weeks, so I managed to survey and collect flyers and brochures, thus, 2 weeks to browse and identify some power vs value for a typical engineering undergrad student usage.

I am a sceptical pc user. It has to be a pentium. and a pentium core 2 duo in fact. I am all about multi tasking, I open multiple applications at the same time and I expect things to keep up with me, not the other way around. After reading various sites of operating systems performance versus each other (that is pentium models vs amd models), tho the comparison might come to a head to head challenge, I've chosen pentium over the multi tasking ability it has.

So here's the full spec:

Lenovo IdeaPad Y410-T5750 Notebook
Intel® Core®2 Duo processor T5750 (2.0GHz, 667 MHz, 2MB L2 Cache)
14.1" WideScreen WXGA with VibrantView
OS = DOS. Upgrade to Windows Vista Premium
Memory = 1024MB upgrade to 2048MB.
HDD = 160GB SATA HDD (5400rpm) upgrade to 250GB SATA HDD
Dual Layer Multiburner Drive (DVD-RW)
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100
10/100 LAN
Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG, Bluetooth
1.3mp Integrated Camera
Warranty = Customer Carry In - 1 Year Parts & Labour
HP all in one printer = RM215
Kapersky AntiVirus = RM80 / 3 registrations.
All in all, RM3215.

So far so good.
