Tiong had also said the BBC would hold a meeting on Monday to discuss the issue and decide on the next course of action to be taken, as they felt Nazri had gone overboard.

(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection...against any Government;
Now, by making those allegation, which the government said to be false, the EC Chairman had the tendency to bring into hatred against the government.
However, that bugger Nazri Aziz said in Parliament that no action is taken against the EC Chairman. The reason given by the brainless minister was not impressive at all and I do not bother to comment on that.

Myself after the first surgey on 14/6/208
After the surgery, I was shown the surgery process (which was recorded). It was scary I tell you. Looking at how the doctor pull the reddish thing and then cut it with the scissor just like a tailor cutting cloth to make baju kurung.
And now I am resting at home (not really resting because I am blogging right now). I was given medical leave for three weeks until 5/7/08. I am still in the process of recovery. So, my next badminton session with my friends at BNM is sometimes in September but close to fasting month. Looks like I have to hang my racket for quite some time. Penantian satu penyeksaan...

And Si Bedol had further stated tht he will hand over the Prime Minister’s post to him (Najib) ... "that’s for sure, there is no doubt that he is my replacement", said Si Bedol. Come on!!! There are only two (2) ways that Si Bedol will leave the PM post. Either the leadership of the country is taken over the PR i.e. Anwar Ibrahim or Si Bedol will lose to Ku Li in party election this coming December. In both situations, Najib will not be able to fulfill his dream to become the PM of Malaysia or rather his wife's dream to become Malaysia's first lady. Click here http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/6/15/nation/21560527&sec=nation.
On the other hand, Najib had this to say, "What’s the point of inheriting a position when you’re going to lose an election?”. Well, I guess Najib knows that he is not going to be the PM of Malaysia because there is no way he can inherit a party (UMNO) that will win in the election. You can wait, Najib but the time will never come. Click here http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/6/13/nation/21533786&sec=nation.
To me, the transition of power from Si Bedol to Najib is as good as transfer of power from Clinton to Bush or any America President for that matter because it does not make the world any better place to live.
Then came the disaster to the Malaysian on 4/6/2008 when Si Bedol happily annouced the petrol price increse by 40% to RM2.70 per litre. I assumed that was the best "present" to the voters for allowing him to be in power by slim margin. The best part was that Si Bedol, in his usual "thinkingless" statement (making statement without thinking) also said that the petrol price would be reviewed monthly. Wow! What was that supposed to mean? To a reasonable man like you and me, it would me that from now on our petrol price would fluctuate according to the world crude oil price. Click here http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/6/5/nation/21461533&sec=nation. But don't forget that later Si Bedol promised us that there will be no more fuel price increase this year. He meant, at least until 31/12/2008. So, don't blame him if he raise the fuel price on the very first day of 2009. Wait!!! So, what happened to the monthly review? Huh!!!! A flip flop.
After the disasterous annoucement by si Bedol, the very next day on 5/6/2008, the brainless Shahrir said that the ban on foreign vehicles from buying feul at the border was uplifted. That was barely one (1) day after his boss, si Bedol increased the price and barely nine (9) days after he made the statement to ban the foreign vehicles from buying fuel at the border. But remember when he said the ban was just a temporary measure until they find better solution on hw best to manage our subsidy. So, nine (9) days later, suddenly he had found the better solution???!!! Crap!!! Bugger Shahrir said that "With the decision announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to increase fuel prices, those filling up the tanks of foreign-registered cars are no longer enjoying subsidies accorded by the Government to Malaysians. “What they will be getting are only discounts so there is no longer a need to impose a ban,” Shahrir said yesterday. Click here http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/6/5/nation/21463370&sec=nation. To him, that was a better solution but to me, that was a con. That bugger and his boss si Bedol are real conmen.
Then, eighteen (18) days later on 23/6/2007, I mean today lah, another bugger, this time is Bedol's deputy, si Najib (I understand if you getting confuse because all the ministers are buggers) said that Government has agreed to implement a dual pump system at fuel stations in border areas so that foreigners do not buy fuel at subsidised prices. Wait!!!! What is this??? I don't understand...On 4/6/2008, that bugger Shahrir in announcing the uplifting on ban on foreign vehicles from buying pterol at our border said that it was no longer necessary to bar foreign vehicles from going to the petrol stations as the price of fuel now was close to that of the market. He went on to say that, "With the decision announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to increase fuel prices, those filling up the tanks of foreign-registered cars are no longer enjoying subsidies accorded by the Government to Malaysians. “What they will be getting are only discounts so there is no longer a need to impose a ban,” Shahrir said yesterday.
If the foreign vehicles do not enjoy subsidy as annouced by bugger Shahrir, why then this bugger Najib said government would introduce dual pump system so that foreign vehicles does not enjoy subsidy. So, which is which? This is a real flip flop, not only by Si Bedol but also his yes men.
With this type of flip flopping government that we curently have, I urged, not only si Bedol but also all those buggers in his cabinet to step down gracefully without any untowards and unwanted incidents. I do not trust them anymore. I believe that many others outside there share the same opinion as mine. We do not neat liars to rule us. We do not need buggers to rule us. We do not need robbers to rule us. We do not need reedy people who cares none but themselves to rule us. We do not need yes men to rule us.
We do not need 20 reasons (dalil) to ask si Bedol and Co to step down as stated by Perlis Mufti. Click here http://drmaza.com/?p=332. When we want to do something, we just need one (1) reason to do it. We do not need more than one (1) reason. If we thought that we have more tan one (1) reasons, than that are excuses and not reason.
However, one (1) thing for sure, liars' place in the hereafter is in the hell. If they want to keep on cheating and lie to us, nothing much we can do because it is them who is going to hell and not us, but as Muslim brothers, we can advice them, which I am doing right now to step doen and stop from lying and repent.

A little bit of on-paper analysis here. I will look from record and historical point of view. Based on record, the frist three (3) teams that I have mentioned before were all runners-up at the group stage, which means all the group Champion were ousted in the q-final. If it is meant that the s-final will be played by all the group runners-up, then, Italy will have their place in the s-final, as they were the runners up in Group D behind Holland while Spain was Group C Champion.
Historicaly, during the last two (2) major football tournaments i.e. World Cup 2002 and World Cup 2006, Guus Hiddink's (the Russia Coach) team had been playing against Italy in the q-final and the 2nd round respectively. In 2002, while under the care of Guus Hiddink, South Korea had created an up set against Italy in the q-final to march into the s-final where they lost to Germany. On the other hand, in 2006, Italy had a sweet revenge against Guus Hiddink (while he was coaching Australia) when Italy defeated Australia in the 2nd stage en route to them winning the World Cup. Both the matches (in 2002) and 2006) were decided by a late and very controversial goal. In 2002, it was Ann Jung Hwan who had scored a controversial goal against Italy (I can't exactly remember what happened but I remember the protest from Italy players). In 206, Italy earned a last minute controversial penalty when Grosso was seen to be brought dow by Aussie Defender.
So, in 2002, Italy was ousted by Guus Hiddink's team while in 2006, Guus Hiddink's team was ousted by Italy. If that is what it meant i.e. Guus Hiddink's team will only walk out from the tournament by Italy and vice versa as what happened in 2002 and 2006, then I guess, Italy will move to the s-final by defeating Spain tomorrow morning to set up a clash with Guus Hiddink's team (Russia).
Let us see whether my prediction is correct or Spain will break the tradition of being the only group Champion in the s-final.

My condolence to Moh Cheng Mau's family for the demise of his mother.

Now, he has done the nation proud for his achievement in winning the keirin title during the test racing with the Australian Cycling Team by defeating Australia's 2004 Athens Olympic double gold medallist Ryan Bayley, two-time Olympic medallist Shane Kelly and former world junior champion Mark French.
He is on the right track to bag for Malaysia the first gold medal in Olympics and that is the reason why I was totally and 100% against Terengganu calling him back from Australia to compete in much less important Sukma.
While we wait for the fifteen (15) minths to come (it may be longer if there are unforseen circumstances that will delay the project), let us analyse the current situation and let us see whether the introduction of the four-cars train can help to ease the problem suffered by the commuters.
The LRT's frequency is every three (3) minutes during peak hours and five (5) minutes during off-peak hours and ten (10) minutes during weekend. For the purpose of this posting, let us leave behind the train frequency on weekend. Everyday, the LRT operates from 6am to 12am, which means eighteen (18) hours perday. Of eighteen (18) hours, operation, four (4) hours is considered as peak hours while fourteen (14) hours as off-peak hours. Which means, during peak hours, the LRT will make around eighty (80) return trips and one hundred and sixty eight (168) return trips during off-peak hours. So, in total the LRT makes two hundred and forty eight (248) return trips or four hundred and ninty six (496) single trips.
So, with an average of 170000 passengers daily, each single trip carries average of three hundred and forty three (343) passengers. Well, it is still within the capacity of the train, as with the two-cars train, the LRT is able to accommodate three hundred and seventy (370) passengers (comfortablye and four hundred and seventy two (472) passengers (crowded, packed and uncomfortable).
However, that was just an average and not the actual number of passengers the LRT carries during peak hours. I am a daily commuter of the LRT. I dare to say that every morning and evening during peak hours, one (1) LRT actually carries between five hundred (500) and five hundred and fifty (550) passengers, which make the train very crowded, packed, cramped, etc, etc. During peak hours, I can simply miss between one (1) and four (4) LRT because of the number of passengers inside the train and in queue.
With the introduction of the four-cars train, each trip is expected to be able to accommodate between seven hundred and forty (740) and nine hundred and ninty four (994) passengers. So, it should be able to solve the current situation of crowded passengers especially during peak hours. But as I said, another fifteen (15) months of suffering. How long can this help us to solve the problem, only the time can tell us. Wait and see.

On 4/6/2008, the Mufti of Perlis, Sahibus Samahah Dr. Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin made statement that Celcom's 100 Days 100 Cars Contest is haram, as it contains elements of gambling. What he meant with the elements of gambling is that when participants need to pay RM5 to answer a question before having the possibility to be declared as a winner. He made an anology of this contest with that of buying 4-digit. Click here http://drmaza.com/wp-content/100-keretaa.jpg.
Yesterday, 12/6/2008, JAKIM (Department of Islamic Development Malaysia) issued an instruction to Celcom to temporarily stop the contest, as meeting between both parties failed to establish contest rules in accordance with Islam.
And today, 13/6/2008, finally, the Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has directed Celcom Mobile Sdn Bhd to immediately end its "Celcom 100 Days 100 Cars" contest following public complaints. In issuing the directive to Celcom, MCMC stated that their investigation on the complaints received revealed elements of non-compliance with the General Consumer Code of Practice. Click here http://www.bernama.com.my/bernama/v3/news_lite.php?id=339210.
Funny right? The contest organiser was given a stop order by the "authority" for non-compliance with the General Consumer Code of Practice and not because it contravenes with Islamic values i.e. it contains elements of gambling. Well, I suppose that if the contest is in compliance with the said Code, it can goes on though it may contain elements of gambling. This is what we call Islamic Country. So, the message that MCMC is sending to us is that, you can organise any contest even that contains elements of gambling that is totally prohibited in Islam so long as you comply with whatever Code that they have. I can sum up MCMC's directive as "man-made-rules and regulations is supreme than the divine rules and regulations".
Before I forget, let me tell you another interesting news. MCMC is run by majority Malay Muslims, who unfortunately failed to see the issue from Islamic point of view notwithstanding the statements made The Mufti of Perlis and JAKIM. I feel sorry for all these office bearers and the Datuks of MCMC who for ther ignorance about Islam made such a stupid and insensitive directive. Click here http://www.skmm.gov.my/about_us/structure_files/skmmorg.pdf.
I wonder what the Islam Hadhari or Islam Ada Hari government will say about this issue. The Minister of Prime Minister Department in charge of Islamic Affairs, Zahid Hamidi said that corporate companies should seek the advice of religious experts before launching promotions, especially those offering prizes. What a crap!!! How can he dares to expect and advise the corporate companies to consult the Muslim scholars when the government itself ignored the scholars? Crap!!!

However, having said that, I wonder why the ban to buy subsidized fuel by foreign vehicles only extended as far as 50km from the border? To me, it should be applicable throughout the nation. The government should go back to the reasoning for having such a rule to ban foreign vehicles to buy subsidized fuel i.e. subsidized fuel is only meant for Malaysians. So, by allowing foreign vehicles to buy subsidized petrol at the stations located more than 50km from the border, for e.g. in KL, it means that subsidized petrol is not really exclusive for the Malaysians.
What I would suggest is that the ban for foreign cars to buy subsidized fuel is applicable throughout the nation and that they (foreign cars) can buy fuel at any station even within the 50km radius from the border but at the market price (without subsidy). This will definitely reduce or perhaps absolve the losses that may be suffered by the petrol station operators and the traders, as the foreign vehicles will just fill up their tanks at any station without the need to go back to their country or drive more than 50km from the border to fill in their tanks. This will not cause any problems or difficulties for the foreign vehicles to enter Malaysia.
Imagine what happen if the foreign vehicles run out of fuel? Most probably they will be stranded somewhere, as they might not be able to go as far as 50km or to go back to their country.
