I just can't gather enough courage to ask forgiveness from a good friend whom I have hurt. Its been haunting me for quite some time. All I can do is just to pray that he will forgive me someday.. Its kinda a personal issue that he shared with me. I thought of helping by asking help of someone else. I should have known that what a friend needed in times like that is just a friend to listen. Thats is all needed. I have wrong and felt guilty eversince.
its kinda a very close friend whom I can easily share anything I like or dun like freely. There is no second thought about things. How I wish things never turnout this way. I just pray for your forgiveness and try to moveon. its been a hard journey considering the tears I have shed over my guilt. I don't think I can forgive myself for what I have done either. I just pray that the angel will take care of you and guide you. Although I can't be at ur side to share your good or bad days, all I hope is you will have a great life and future ahead of you.
p/s its not easy to break off from a bff. it really hurts and pains me that I thought of just drain myself in alcohol and forget about it. But I have realise that it isn't the solution to the problem. I wish I can gather my strength one of these day to just say "I'm sorry" and "can you forgive me?"

However, that is gonna change. Its been way to long that I have been stuck in this loop hole of faithlessness and emptyness. Sometimes, as a Christian you may know the truth that Jesus teaches, but it just seems to be difficult and unpratical to follow the high standards that Jesus set for us.
Repentance, humility, forgiveness, kindness, caring and loving person is what I sought to be in the future. I know that it means going against the worldly values and its gonna be very difficult. But thats life, full of challenge and uncertainty. I just need to know that "How Great is our God" to keep me going on.
Also special thanks to my cell members for praying for my sister. She don't need any operation. Praise God for that. I was getting worried about her condition, and asked my cell members to pray for her. God works in marvellous ways when we never expect it to happen.
p/s hopefully I don't get sabotaged for my birthday this weekend. I'm just worried what they might be doing to me.
lesson of the week, in difficult times, when we need help, then we'll discover who our true friends are. fair wheather or storms and trials kinda friends.

NO Cow head protest and Church Torching
The current BN government is going to be six feet under the ground soon. Or I just hope it will. I wonder whether anyone would ever be surprise when this happen in the near future. By the rate the current government is running, I’ll probably put my bet that it is heading towards its own destruction. The PM is a child born with silver spoon and had many skeletons hidden and probably stuffed to the max inside his cupboard, judging by the amount of scandals that he is involved in. From the case of the Mongolian woman’s name that bloggers cannot mention or you will be regarded as a national threat by the government, to all the corruption allegation regarding the Defense Ministry’s handling of lobbying to buy jet fighter, first national space ‘tourist’, and latest RM100 million worth of two jet engines that were sanctioned by US as equipment that were supposed to be taken care of, was being stolen and sold to South Africa, and the flip flop on economics.
Now let us recap on the scandal regarding this disgraceful and disgusting PM. I was rather shocked to know that the Police escort for the former DPM was involved in the Mongolian model’s murder case. It was a case of a sacrificial lamb to begin with. The two police officers were sentenced guilty while the political analyst was freed. Although the police officers were sentenced (technically as in paper they are dead and most probably started a new life overseas with new identity with never to return order) as their face were never reviewed to the public and their dead faces were never shown at all.
As all conspiracy theories suggest that the officer’s identity may be dead with innocent illegal immigrant from Indonesia was used to carry out the sentence. The question was, logically, there is no reason for the officer to kill a foreigner with no motive except an order from their superior who most probably is the DPM at the time. More over the fashion of how the innocent victim was blasted with C4 bombs into gazillion pieces like dust was done probably because the dead body still contains DNA of the murderer.
The only way to make DNA sample of murderer impossible to find is to blast it into pieces. This story did not end here; there is another part where the victim who is fluent in Russian maybe involved in the lobbying of the fighter jet of the Defense Ministry. How money was spent on such lobbyist remains unknown. It is a question of what animal would murder a person and blast the corpse into pieces. I guess although the court has made its decision we must remember that justice does not exist especially in Malaysian court.
There were the judges buying scandals and others that I do not want to delve into which is describe as a normal practice by a minister. Another question is where on Earth can you buy a C4 bomb and use it to blast people. If the Defense ministry were to come up with a report that the bombs were stolen and being used in the black market, I seriously doubt what the defense ministry is doing. Am I even safe to walk on the street? The answer is definitely a big NO.
Another is regarding the defense ministry contract to buy new fighter jet where it is a normal scene in Malaysia to find that the jet ended falling down like one those Vietnam War movies where planes just fall from sky as if there is no science behind the design of it. Another issue is regarding the responsibility of the minister who was in-charge during the so called lost jet engines which is reportedly to cost some RM50M each. According to the PM he is open about the case. Then Malaysian will demand him to openly declare that he resign as PM and from any ministerial position in order to take full responsibility of the so called lost engines and other yet to be announce lost items from the defense ministry. I wonder if the C4 bomb will be included as part of the lost item since anyone may just drop by the Defense Ministry of Malaysia and pick any toy that they want. The Defense ministry of Malaysia must have been opening its door too much that any gadget is open for the public to take and use. I’ll not be surprise if any of them found in any soon to be world war by any rogue nation as identified by the US government. No wonder why Malaysia has so many terrorist citizens since the Defense Ministry has been supplying them FOC for training I guess. If the PM has no solution to the problem, I OPENLY demand him to resign.
In addition, as the world is facing the worst global recession since the Great Depression, I wonder if the PM has any plan to solve the issue. It seems that the PM as an economic graduate has no grasp in economic after all. According to him, there is no difference between a 6% annual GDP and 9%annual GDP. Then, my question is does he even realize the big gap between the difference in the level of development of Malaysia and Singapore? Both sound similar? I beg to differ sir. FYI Malaysia will not achieve the so called develop nation status by 2020 as we have such good finance minister in the PM whom has no understanding of economic at all to spearhead the country’s economy. What is the strategy to be a develop nation? Until today there has not been a single blue print about it. Moreover, the so called blueprint will be postponed until next year. Well, Vision 2020 can be post-poned until 2050 I guess. Since we have such undecided, spendthrift and corrupted government with all sort of leakages in their economic plan. The current huge budget deficit that the PM plans will incur a big hole in the pocket of the future generation. For once, I do not understand why there is a need for the government to pay more than 10 times the actual cost of building a toll road by paying a yearly premium to subsidize such toll road. Concessionaire were given long term to milk money out the poor citizen each time they use it. In addition, the contract allows them to increase the toll rate every few years. Why not the government just built it on its own?
Another point that I have been telling everyone is the Malaysian government is going broke each day. Since Petronas’ earning for the year 2009 has halved from the 2008, the BN government has no source of income to fund its budget. Hence, the PM resorted to introduce new taxes and selling down its share of GLC. It is a no brainer thing to come to such conclusion. If you have a lot of financial commitment that you could not afford, definitely you will resort to selling your property to raise money to service it. As such, the government will be resorting to the same tactic. It the right of every Malaysian to get an audit and account on how the money raised from the sale of the GLC shares are being used by the government.
The call by Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng to the federal government to have open tender for all its projects is one to start with. Also there should be a new constitution that is amended that allows the people to reject any project by the government through national referendum as used by most western countries where a national vote of referendum can be held with more than a million people signing the petition. The first project I’ll propose for national referendum is the building of a convention center by the Naza group in a land swap agreement. It is illogical to proceed with it as it is an utter waste of public fund.
Instead nationalizing the public transport and integrating the whole country’s public transport should be done. The state of Malaysia’s public transport is a disgrace and heartbreaking. It is unbelievable that there is no integrated electronic card paying system that can be used in all public transport like in Singapore and the price of public transport is also expensive as it is not efficient. Hence more people prefer to drive on their own. If Singapore can do it why not Malaysia?
Another suggestion is that all the money the government gained through the GLC share liquidation should be used to fund the SMEs and new entrepreneur instead. By doing so, the government will be able to sow many seed of potential business making by the private sector. This is logical as there are many talented Malaysian out there with creative ideas. The money must be disbursed out not based on race or anything but only meritocracy principal of the best potential projects.
Latest scandal is the involvement of the government in trying to gain political mileage by fanning Malay-Islam fanaticism by supporting Muslim to protest the Allah ruling. The result is two Churches being torched and another failed attempt at a Catholic Church in the capital city. The government is practicing double standard in not arresting any Muslim involved in the protest. Generally any UMNO supported and organized protest that is illegal is given a pass and others will face police arrest. From Bersih to Hindraf rally, and the candle light vigil in 2009 saw the police going hard against the peaceful protester by provoking them with water canons and chemical like tear gasses. Meanwhile, Cow head protest, Allah court ruling and now Church torching will be given a pass by the police. Next, I predict is Buddhist temple torching, Sikh temple and others soon to come. If a mosque were to be torched, the whole non-muslim population will be sentenced to death is the only verdict I can think of. Since Malays and Muslim are the invincible or rather UMNO is greater than Allah. They will prosecute anyone they don’t like. Until today there is none Christian minister dare to challenge Najib and his idiosyncrasies. I really wonder what is their stand against Church torching? It is a known fact that the government does not give money to build any house of worship except mosque. Now, they want to even destroy churches and Hindu temples build from the believers own pocket?
If PAS an Islamic party can come to term that Christianity and Judaism with Islam is part of Abrahamic faith is allowed to use the term Allah, what is the justification UMNO is giving? UMNO > ALLAH is the only one I can think of right now.

UMNO is shooting its own ship and making a plan for it to sink in the next general election. It is a intolerable party that is faithless as a Muslim. Since they do not have faith in their god, I advice them to find another religion. If the mere use of a word can cause such a havoc imagine if I enter the mosque, the place might torn into pieces since the act of a Christian enter it will convert all of them to Christianity. That will be the childish faithless Muslim's claim.
A word of warning to UMNO is prepare to be sink forever if it dares to challenge the court ruling. Christians especially in Sabah and Sarawak are really angry with the UMNO regarding this issue. Currently the federal government has already lose the peninsular Malaysia to the opposition party which are more rational and secular stand that supports fairness. If they were to continue make an issue out of this, I suggest the churches council in Sabah and Sarawak to unite and vote anything but BN in the coming election. Then, we'll see what will happen.
After all PAS as an Islamic party sound better than a faithless Malay Muslim of UMNO. As a start all the MP for Sabah and Sarawak in the federal government must have a joint statement that they will resign enmassed if the BN continue to politicise on this issue. If these MP do not make their stand clear and understood by the PM and federal government, they can kiss their political career goodbye for betraying Jesus.
As a start, Muslim bumiputera's call for the rest to acknowledge that Islam is Malaysia official religion is well understood. But that does not give them the right to prohibit others from professing and practicing their religion. Moreover, it has been about 50 years that Christian majority states like Sabah and Sarawak were subjugated to bow down to Islamic rule when our states and people are Christian. the minority Muslim are being the leaders in the state. If their majority rules the day rule were to apply I suggest that the whole administration in both states were to hire Christian than Muslim currently. Our willingless to bow down to such rule has its limit and time. Do not challenge our patience and treat Christian bumiputeras as second class citizens. If these were to continue, Sabah and Sarawak were better to come out of Malaysia and take all the non muslim of peninsular Malaysia with it. And we will see how far peninsular Malaysia will progress since their claim that non Muslims are exploiting them.
It is really childish of UMNO to even start playing a religious card on the christian comunity when Malaysia a small Islamic country have so much fuss with a simple word Allah when compared to the world's most populous country of Indonesia which do not have such issue. Moreover, the bahasa bibbles comes from Indonesia. So why so big a fuss when there is no problem in Indonesia. The Home Ministry's decision to ban the use of Allah is equivalent to shooting on its own foot when BN is still limping from the severe car accident that it suffered in the last general election. Maybe an amputation is a better prognosis to this problem than continue allow a severely injured leg to continue living.
It is time for Sabah and Sarawak to prepare stepping up its call for independence and put an end to being treated as second class citizen like the apartheid policy in South Africa in about two decades ago.

The current diplomatic issues surrounding the allege claim of Malaysia and Indonesia as to whom owns the pendet dance, food, batik and others is really a vital diplomatic issue that must be nip at its bud.
First and foremost, a historical lesson must be put into motion. Malays from Malaysia are mostly from Indonesia to start with. Back in the history we have learnt that the Palembang, Indonesia Prince, Parameswara started the Melaka Kingdom. And the subsequent history of Bugis people from Sulawesi, Indonesia rule over Johor and Selangor. So currently the Malays in Malaysia has certain lineage of extended families that lives in Indonesia.
As we all know that, we can migrate to another country, but true to our heart and core self values and definitely culture and heritage, people do not change much. As such, the Malays in Malaysia still continue their practices that have similar pattern with those in Indonesia. A good example is Bahasa Melayu, where there is a slight difference between Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Malaysia. But both are still Malay languages.
As such its like twin brothers or sisters that may share the same genetics and physical features but both still differs in attitude and bahaviours. Thus, lead a different way of live and have a different carreer. Malaysia and Indonesia is a good example of this differences. The split in attitude and behaviours was because of their difference in their environment. Malaysia was conquered by Britain while Indonesia by the Dutch. So its like a twin that live with different families, but both still have the same genetics and may like the same things. In this case the food, culture and heritage.
In order to solve this issue, I would suggest that Malaysia and Indonesia to collaborate in terms of marketing its tourism package. Both countries can produce advertisements that shows the best of both countries. Since there is similarities in both countries' culture, the best way is to produce a caption that states Malaysia and Indonesia culture and art. When there is difference, state is according to the country but when similarities occur state both. In this case, Malaysia should be paying 70% of the cost while Indonesia pay 30%. This will be a win win situation. As Malaysia will be paying more, the name of Malaysia will always be stated first.
The benefits of doing so for Malaysia is, we can solve the diplomatic issue of whom owns the culture and herritage instead market is as both. This will avoid a war with Indonesia. Plus, Malaysian Economy will be more dependent on Indonesian market in 20 years time since their population is approximately 10 times Malaysian population. Besides the brand name of Indonesia is more well known to foreigners than Malaysia. However, by associating ourselves with Indonesia, it will also help to promote Malaysia to the world faster. Its like Proton associate it selves with Toyota. I'm pretty sure many people knows Toyota but not Proton. However, by associating Proton with Toyota, everyone in the world will show a keen interest in Proton soon since it is associated with Toyota. So its a symbiosis relationship where both can gain. And of course, there should be more International Direct flights from the world to Kuala Lumpur for easier access.
For Indonesia, its a good collaboration since they still get to market their country's culture and art at a cheaper cost and still attract tourist. With Malaysian expertise to tap on marketing, it will help Indonesia to better promote its tourism package with Malaysia. From my observation from my latest trip to Indonesia, its seems like the winning tourism place in Indonesia is Bali only. The other cities like Yogyakarta, Bandung, Jakarta do not attract many tourist. This is because of its promotional issues and there is less Internationalisation of Indonesia like its langauage barriers. All the road sign is in Indonesian language and people do not speak English at all. So tourist will generally avoid such places. But in Bali, most locals speak better English, since its a tourism site. The best way to benefit for Indonesia is to offer a two country package for tourist. Since Indonesian Airlines are barred from most International cities, it is beneficial to get tourist to fly into Kuala Lumpur and tour Malaysia first then get a conecting flight into Indonesia cities like Bandung, Jakarta, Jogyakarta, Medan, Surabaya and others to visit Indonesia. It will create more jobs for the locals and will eleviate the standard of living of locals.

many students were saddened by the quota system of the way the scholarship is given out. I was one of those who fall under the JPA scandal...
You know its kinda very heart breaking to be rejected after giving the full few years of your life in school to get straight As and still get rejected because on the ground of my race as chinese. This treatment is worst than Apartheid in South Africa. Its like you bought the first class ticket and being kicked into the economy class and your right as first class ticket holder being given to someone else with economy class ticket. Ask any right minded consumer whether they would like to be treated in such manner. Absolutely no!
There are just too many unprofessional way the scholarship is given. Take myself for an example. I'm a state debater, president of fews clubs including prefectorial board and very active in many co-curricular activities. And I scored straight As ofcourse. The way the interview was conducted was like uneducated people being given the task of taking care of the missile launch button of a nuclear weapon. Maybe a bit too exagerating but that how it is. When I was presenting the interviewer jsut walked outside the room to answer a call. My friend complained of how his interviewer was busy answering messages the whole time. The question here is PSD interviwers are the most rude interviwer I ever face with. Totally unprofessional and do not ethics in carrying out their task.
The other issue is, since they say that the point system is based on a few criteria, they should publish the marks scored by the so deserving students. This way we will know how the students did according to the point system. It just gives us the impression that they had already chose who to give it to. Yeah, to the close family and friends of UMNO and BN. It is just unfair the way they give out the scholarship.
the solution still remains for non bumi students in malaysia... the same old formula is study at private college or overseas. when you are successful enough, leave Malaysia and start a new life in the land of opportunity and merit like US, Singapore, Australia...
This is also my conclusion. the BN parties will just say they will help u appeal.. but they are just dogs barking to their UMNO master. so the decision still remains in the hands of the master...
as u know.. what the decision of the half century master is, will be and remains to discriminate non bumi population. yeah their claim of their majority of population is just another excuse. 50 years back, chinese make up 50% of malaya population. what happen that now it is barely 30%? because of discrimination and NEP.
I will never support race based party ever in my life.. and MCA and MIC founders are really just whores who prostitute themselves to UMNO. and the result is the Chinese and Indian population being ill treated till today.
No to BN... change in gov in 13th general election is the only solution....
so hopefully any students who fell under the black magic of BN for the scholarship, please wake up, there is a difference between ideal and reality.. reality is practical and ideal is just bull shit that will never happen. and reality sucks, I know. I have been there and done all those appeal to no avail. well, your future is in your own hands. Just never trust the BN gov. they are full of crap. trust me.
Time to change.... for justice to happen...
all the best to all of you in ur careers... as usual the typical chinese way is to work hard, work hard and still work hard.. but this time in a smarter way... hopefully...
Will keep praying for the change to happen.. united we stand against injustice of apartheid BN gov.
