I was rather frustrated over the weekend – I couldn’t log into my wordpress account ! Sorry, that took away two millions years of my blogging life😦

But I am grateful to my faithful readers who continued to check me out despite my absence and gave my last post a whopping 200++ comments. Miss me, didn’t ya? And I missed you all.

Over the weekend, I found some annoying titbits that I wanted to blog about, but couldn’t until now. It’s all a bit too late and stale news already, but never mind, just for the record…

I could punch the paper myself when I saw the photo of the famous Lingam video-man and MP Loh Gwo Burne’s story about being punched by fellow MP Nik Nazmi’s aide splashed all over the front page of the People’s Paper, The STAR.

The People’s Paper suddenly came across to me like the Politician’s Paper, and not the People’s. Why? Because there were at least two other REAL people’s stories, but they were abandoned to the insides and back pages.

One was the story of a “Cop charged with raping girl” (On the Nation, Page 16), and the other was a story on “Horror attack in classroom”, where a teacher and a student were hit with a hammer and spanner (on the Nation, Page 23).

Aren’t these two more relevant as people’s stories than the one on the politician?

Then there was the story of the space tourist who got a datukship. The grouses that goes on in coffee shops of course include the question why should that travellor who went to space on the RAKYAT’s money should get a datukship????

I’ve also noticed that Anwar Ibrahim gets prime time coverage over TV and also lots of space in the newspapers.  Are the newspapers preparing themselves to welcome the new Prime Minister come September 16?

The question is “will the plan on Malaysia day succeed?”

    Hi Susan,
    Yeah, 1st to comment!

    The net was squeezed from broadband to narrowband! Could hardly access any blogs. Perhaps, power that be is trying to slowdown the dissemination of information.

    About the travellor receiving datukship, I asked myself how come thomas cuppers like Ng Boon Bee had to wait 41years to receive his award??? Something is really wrong with how the nation recognizes each citizen contribution.

    Here is a write up about Penang’s public transportation:A radical solution which I would to share with your fans!

    For my money Anwar Ibrahim is ALREADY the REAL PM of Malaysia. I take my imaginary hat off to him for maintaining his equilibrium, poise – and indefatigable schedule – in the face of such overwhelming and inhuman odds.
    And Pakatan Rakyat, for boldly taking things in their stride and facing the constant onslaught of bad press from the eunuch press and TV stations – plus the slimiest forms of sabotage from the bad losers in Umno. For many Pakatan MPs it’s a steep learning curve. Nothing can replace the value of experience which they obviously lack – but they more than make up for that in their dedication to basic ideals and aspirations, which are ultimately people-centered rather than self-serving like Umno/BN’s agenda for so many decades. Keep pushing together, folks, and even the Great Wall will fall!

    Don’t you know, this is a nation that has her priorities all wrong…..govern by BN
    shitheads with lop-sided brains. I have already consoled myself and accepted this reality, based on this saying, “If you can’t beat them, join them” but I say, “Fu*k them!

    Hi Susan,

    “I’ve also noticed that Anwar Ibrahim gets prime time coverage over TV and also lots of space in the newspapers. Are the newspapers preparing themselves to welcome the new Prime Minister come September 16?” -Susan

    Coz Anwar’s The MAN. That’s why.

  7. tamade says:

    Yes, missed you definitely. The extremists and racists among the ruling elites in the Bolehland’s most corrupt political party will do everything to destroy the harmony of this country in order to make themselves and their cronies getting rich.

    Just read some of their blogs and you can smell it. The people especially the younger generation irrespective of the ethic background must wake up. If not , the whole country will become poorer and poorer and the people will suffer for many generations to come.

    Let’s flush these dirty buggers into the toilet for the sake of the people.

    Susan,
    Glad that you are back! Checked your site a couple of times during midnight, but didn’t get anything new until now. Can’t imagine you being away for too long, otherwise I’ll go bonkers as a couple of other sites have disabled my comments – hahaha, esp those on Dotty!

    Cheers!

  12. chaptokam says:

    Susan,
    Glad that you are back! New postings means new comments .

    The astroboy who spent 90 million of our money just got a Jatoh ship . Something very wrong . Another Jatoh ship to a gay .

  13. Dala says:

    Whew! Welcome back. Looks like it was more the me who missed you and noticed your lack of posts.

  14. My2cen says:

    All these datukship awards are a sham for royalty to make money! That’s why there’s no guidelines in conferring titles to people…

    I salute the Terengganu Sultan, who is the current YDP Agong, for withholding/cancelling the awards ceremony this year. Whatever his reasons are, it’s a good signal to those brokers to uphold some dignity in proposing names for datukship. I am sick and tired of multiple awards given to the same cronies. There’s so many other deserving Malaysians out there who have sacrificed their time to serve the poor.

  15. HELLBOY says:

    I don’t see any value in Datukship. If there is, tell me about it. You can find a datuk under every stone accompanied by 4 datins.

  16. flyer168 says:

    Dear Susan,

    Sure you were “Missed” by everyone….why no new posting ?

    Not to worry about the lost opportunity, cos there will be more revelations to come at every turn….we have given them the rope & they will surely hang themselves tighter & tighter….

    Anyway, welcome back & Cheers

  17. matt says:

    You also missed another story which did not get much coverage Ng boon bee made a datuk at age 70.

  18. susan,
    why nobody do a follow up story on Bala? Rumors abound that he has absconded for good with new identities for him and family.

  19. UMNO gives so many Datukships away they do not remember how many there are ! Just throw a stone or a five cents coin an you are sure to hit one !

  20. Bornfree says:

    Whats wrong with UMNO/government? Knowing very well that the Rakyat is against the pin up poster boy who goes to space with the rakyat’s money and yet he is awarded a datukship. Guess common sense is not that common anymore. More news on Pakatan means less news for UMNO and the goons. What happened to Bala, Atlantuya, Najib & Normah & the C4 gang?

  21. imwatchingu says:

    Glad to have you back, Susan. For a while I thought they did a Anwar on you. It’s been hard to access your’s, RPK and Malaysiakini blogs. Being a paying member of Malaysiakini, I get quite deprived when access is so restricted by heavy traffic.

  22. sunwayopal says:

    There is a BIG VERY BIG difference if Pakatan and DSAI comes to power vs the current BeeEnd power structure and you should highlight it in your blog.

    If DSAI ever comes to power, people should not worry, because DAP and PAS comes to power also as EQUAL partners. Lim Kit Siang and Tok Guru will not just let DSAI do as he wants.

    This will truly be a check and balance govt. Likewise , PAS cant do as they want without angering DAP and also DAP cant do as they want without angering PAS. Because if any of the 3 walks out of Pakatan, Pakatan Rakyat will fall as the Govt. So , all 3 parties work together!

    That is the difference vs DSAI 10 years ago when he was in BeeEnd.

    In BeeEnd, everybody knows Badawi and Najis can do as they want. UMNO rules BeeEnd as Superme King. All the rest, MCA, MIC, Gerakan etc etc etc are just running dogs! That is why you have corruption galore!

    That is the real difference between a Pakatan Rakyat Federal Govt and the current corrupt govt we have.

  23. eeyaw says:

    Susan,
    Glad you are back posting forthright articles for concerned Malaysians! Just watch out for those pesky umno goons losers who are forever trying to hack websites which don’t toe the line like MT.

  24. JeyS says:

    Good to have you back!

    The internet had been -close net this last weekend. Hardly got to read MK..and far worst wasn’t able to keep updates on the blogs i love!! Lol just as well i didn’t miss things as for me nothing great happened in this country except for our govt digging their graves deeper and deeper into shit.

    Well as for the datuk-ship…hahahaha another laugh la! Tsk tsk tsk…so worthy is he?…like one blogger commented..you throw a pebble and you hit at least 2 datuks…thats how they have mushroomed!

    Cheers mate and welcome back to mad mad world!

  25. bamboo river says:

    Yeah,Susan, MSM is actually making a kill to publish more of Anwar’s news. Reason? They know only then their paper can sell.
    About MP Loh’s punching incident, the TV3 news made a big hoo ha about it. Saw the news where that former eloping MB @ M2M commented that only BN since Merdeka are capable of handling matters thru discussions. Only BN can settle land disputes peacefully. Giving example on places of worship like , mosques, temples and churches.
    I felt like mopping my tv monitor(I was mopping the floor at that time) What shit is he talking about?
    Shah Alam took about 20 years to approve a church to be built. That also it has to look like a ‘factory building’. Who gave the go ahead to demolish a Hindu Temple in Kampung Rimba?
    Yeah, BN is always right and other parties are always violent. poorah!

  26. RKP says:

    This ruling govt. must be ‘nuts’ to be stirring racial/religious sentiments again and again.
    It is against the wishes of the rakyat to touch on racial and religious differences.
    We would want to live peacefully with one another inspite of our differences in skin colour and beliefs.Thats the only way to go forward in everything.

    I am from Malacca and we lived in a village where the malays,chinese,indians and others like eurasians lived as brothers and sisters when we were children.
    Can we change our position now? Impossible….

    Why don’t these goons know that and stop playing racial and religious sentiments for their own political interests?
    If you have lost ‘power’ to rule just bow out of the scene gracefully.

  27. anti says:

    hi to all the malaysian ,
    i was a medical doctor who working together with space tourist in 2000. he was surgery resident and his knowledge was very poor and worst all …. he was not contactble most of the time . many time , 330pm in friday , i can`t see him aroundin ward like the other gov servant . i dunno with what criteria he was awarded datukship .

  28. DR SURESH KUMAR says:

    Hi Susan welcome back,

    There was so much hue and cry when the most deserving petite Nicol David was conferred a datukship, yet when our 1st space tourist who went up at the expense of the hard earned rakyat’s money was bestowed one,no noises at all.

    Till today I am still eagerly waiting to see what research our 1st space tourist undertook in space and when will he be tabling it.I wonder if he did research on how to pray under zero gravity conditions?Yet another dubious distinction scored by our faceless umnoputras and become the laughing stock of the world.What a wastage of the hard earned public money.

  29. kittykat46 says:

    Hi Susan,
    Welcome back !
    Your blog has nearly 3 Million hits…should be there by the coming weekend, even faster if something Big happens in the country next few days..

  30. fucai says:

    but this assistant punched MP also cannot lar!!
    is he a barbarian??
    he should be fired !

  31. Menyalak-er says:

    Uh, anti (12:10): “i WAS a medical doctor….” My goodness what happened??? Too many Shakys around huh?
    Datukships and other man-made tiltle not important la, even “Bishop-Pricks”! We also shouldn’t pay much attention to this farce – i mean to be called “grandfather” to all and sundry?
    Yep, that’s what a foreigner asked me.
    Malu++, could only reply: “Yep, we all hope to ‘found’ a whole new race of imbeciles…”
    Anyway, i think ‘Jaguhnought’ Shaky must quite gay right now and we shouldn’t spoil his ‘syiok-ness’. Its not his fault they couldn’t squeeze enough businessmen/ampu-men this time round – all going broke meh!
    Hey friend captokam, got oredi not? If not want one?

  32. DR SURESH KUMAR says:

    Hi Anti,

    When talking about knowledge,it goes without an iota of doubt that the majority of not only bumi drs but most bumi graduates are poor in knowledge,attribute this to the quota system.

    We are actually not talking about knowledge here,we are more concerned about the wastage of public funds for useless projects like the `angkasawan’,just to show the world that we also have a space tourist.At least if we could send him up into the sky with our own rocket,then thats a different story altogether.All these are making us a laughing stock in the eye of the world.By the way you smack of jealousy and as bad as that`space tourist’.

  33. Menyalak-er says:

    Yo Dr Suresh Kumar, glad to meet your acquintance.
    Yep, absolutely agree with the ‘majority and most’ parts… Have been training housemen/M.o.’s for too long huh?
    Got out a long, long time ago – hematemesis ++… yucks.
    Not only graduates-la, try sending any ‘national car’ to a ‘national car service centre’ and see how they “potong-ed” the Protong? Malena++
    Its endemic this culture of ignorance… ‘tidak ‘pa’… attitudes, spoilt brats.
    But not all is lost, ‘cos there certainly are some good bright sparks among the both the older and new generation, only problem is the old ducks of my generation too ‘malas/malu’ to speak out.
    Btw, take it easy on the youngster cos he’s very ‘anti’…
    Cheers, glad to have you along.

    “The people especially the younger generation irrespective of the ethic background must wake up. If not, the whole country will become poorer and poorer and the people will suffer for many generations to come.”

    I think the real target is not the younger generation, but the elderly folks. A few days before the March 8 election, some of my friends told me that it was so difficult to persuade their old parents, old aunties and uncles to vote for the opposition because they had been loyal supporters of BN all these years.

    Cheeky as I am, I’m now offering free computer lessons to elderly retired folks twice a week so they get to surf the net and read for themselves all the good and bad comments about the BN government posted on various blog sites.

    I hope some of you would do the same in your area and together we can make this country a better place for our future generations.

  35. Orang Utan says:

    Hi “Datuk’ Susan,
    I think it is up to us to call a person datuk. I used to call my friend datuk. So u aee it is nothing grat being conferred a datuk.Nowadays the title datuk is like the US dollar i.e keep falling in value.

  36. Orang Cherdik says:

    Orang Utan memang dari hutan
    Tak beza datuk dari datin
    Bapok dari pondan
    Anwar dari anjing

    hahaha

  37. DR SURESH KUMAR says:

    Hi Menyalak-er,

    Glad to meet you too.Glad that you noted the `majority and most’parts as I dont generalize things.Yes been quite long in the govt service and same goes to my wife too.We have seen enough `anti’ type of blokes.But yet it took us 10 yrs to decide before we left Malaysia.Yes we are domiciles of Auastralia now.Mind it it took us 10 years to decide on this.Hope you can understand what I mean?

    Glad to have you along too.Cheers bro.

  38. Menyalak-er says:

    Hi Dr. Suresh Kumar,
    TQ for your prompt reply.
    Well I haven’t left yet eventhough got places to go. Guess i’ll hang around for the time being and await the procto/colonoscope! haha
    I completely understand how you feel and empathize with you guys. Shits in the service; in private practice now. Ain’t no bed of roses either…
    Right now, we’re struggling as is obvious and need help to monitor and advise. However, be forewarned, this consultancy is pro bono and expect a lot of flak from all sorts… Hey lets extend this to our comrades in Aussie!
    Woof, woof! Cheers, mate.
