Malays should not fear the DAP.


I am not going to respond to the xenophobic responses around news that Aspan Alias and Sakmongkol are about to join DAP. No explanation will be able to change preconceived biases. So why bother? So we are about to join or have joined DAP.
The DAP is a democratic party committed to the rule of law, good governance and good government. It abhors corruption and abuse of political office. To me those are attractive propositions. UMNO on the other hand has turned its back on these. It harps only on one primal worry of Malays- when UMNO is threatened it shares the threat with Malays at large. So a threat to UMNO is translated mindlessly into a threat to Malays as a whole. Nothing can be farther from the truth. That is how UMNO has approached politics in Malaysia basically- make its fears public, make the gains private for selected Malays within UMNO.
I have only one message to that- those salad days and that halcyon period are over.
UMNO is trapped by its own successes. Indeed its supporters and leaders assume ownership of the wrong things and end up digging in to support the wrong choices.
My answer is, if we do indeed change our political vehicle that is what we are actually doing. Don’t read our move as blasphemous or treasonable. The DAP is more relevant and functional in achieving a more democratic and abuse-free society. As a Muslim, we are changing wadah not aqidah.
So, I thought it would be more substantive to answer my critics by writing an article, why shouldn’t Malays embrace DAP politics? That’s the only way to dominate and conquer your fears.
How has DAP politics been inimical to the general political health of this country? Can any DAP Chinese leader be a PM when it’s contesting only at most 50-55 seats? Can any DAP non Malay leader harbor the dream of becoming a PM in a country dominated by Malays? Has the DAP threatened the institution of Malay rulers? DAP has never done that or will not be mad to countenance such rebellious idea, but UMNO on the other hand has insulted the Malay rulers way back in 1998 constitutional crisis. Can we reasonably accept the allegation that the DAP is instrumental in claims that Malays are being converted into Christians when most DAP members are not themselves Christians? We have to do better than that to take Malays as imbeciles. Only UMNO seems to do that.
But DAP is Chinese chauvinist party and anti-Malay. I will answer by examining the deeds rather than slogans. When I was an ADUN in the Pahang Legislative assembly ( 2004-2008) I have never heard the lone DAP member ever speak about anti Malay themes. He spoke about abuse of power, about mindless spending, he spoke about maladministration. The first book Lim Kit Siang writes that I read was Time Bombs in Malaysia. After that I read so many books written by Kit Siang that touched on the Maika Scandals, the BMF financial scandal and so on. If we are honest enough, we have to admit, the issues raised were never about one race dominating the other but were always about the abuses of those in power, corruption, and a continuous attack on policies that are ruinous to this country. So we are going to oppose Kit Siang on the basis of the fact that these things are spoken of by a Chinaman?
To the Chinese UMNO is also a chauvinist Malay party except, their leaders can be easily bought. The Malay will sell all to abandon their cause. Er…correction, the UMNO Malay, I mean.
I would also like to respond by saying- why Malays should consider joining DAP en masse. It’s a party committed to democratic principles and rule of law. I can only imagine, so many can prosper under a regime of freedom of speech within DAP. I can speak on the plight of the displaced and disowned Malays with more energy than allowed of in UMNO. The interest of Malays can be fought of on any political platform other than UMNO. That is what UMNO fears. Its monopoly is broken.
So the past week I have had many friends calling me asking whether it’s true I am joining DAP? Some folks in my hometown, Pekan refer to me now as Dato DAP. I find the responses somewhat amusing and comical.
There was a comment reminding me and Aspan as to who started May 13? The thrust of that reminder is to remind us; of his and others belief that DAP started the May 13 incident.
Ok, you want to play ball, we play ball too. Since you want to know, what if I say Tun Razak allowed it to happen because the ensuing troubles would give him an excuse to kick out Tengku Abdul Rahman? The point is, there was no single contributor to the May 13 incident. But I would place some blame on Tun Razak who as Home Minister allowed things to degenerate. He allowed it so that a proclamation of emergency can be made.
Finally, let me deal with certain responses from certain pro UMNO bloggers. The chief spokesman is of course that paid lackey and buffoon of a regurgitating machine. He does nothing but regurgitate material passed on to him by his paymasters. The material he writes and posts therefore emits the strong smell of vomit. The owner of the lard layered brain does what he does best- spewing personal attacks. And so he invites comments from likeminded mental gnomes to do what he has orchestrated.
Why the paranoia? If we are not good, failed ADUN, bankrupt politicians, it will be cinch for any winnable UMNO candidates to beat us. So, it’s no cause of concern or a sleep depriver. But please remember to stop telling lies about us so that we can promise not to tell the truth about you.
I see a sense of hopelessness. They cannot attack our nationalist credentials because we are as Malay as they are too ( to some we are , in fact more Malay in appearance and in thinking) – so they do what they do best. Attack me on the personal side. No big deal. My advice to these UMNO bloggers is simple. Please stop telling lies about me, and I promise not to tell the truth about you people. And telling the truth about you people includes telling the truth about top UMNO leaders including the PM who is Pekan UMNO division head.
If we are so easily beatable, then why all the fuss?  We can’t do damage to invincible UMNO. We on the other hand, see UMNO as the party before, presently and forever stealing, pillaging and ruining the country.

Do what you think is best for you. As long as you always remember that ultimately we will be judged in the court of Allah, so follow the guidance of Islam at all times. I pray for you, Amin.

Krishna 1 January 2012 at 19:24  

Great write up Dato. Congratulations.

Only recently a thought ran through my head. That when UMNO has its back against the wall on day after GE 13, with all its allies decimated, it will turn to DAP for help to form the government. Will the DAP agree to help on condition that UMNO will change and serve Malaysia? It was really mouth watering thought that DAP will be with UMNO and keep them in check.

But if the Malays throw their support with DAP instead of PKR or PAS, there is better chance for a truly Malaysian party serving Malaysian interest.

I pray for its success.

What u have written is crude reality.

Please be advised that I am not one of those you refer to.

You and Aspan have my support and many more others are following suit Sak.

i used to follow Aspan giving political speeches about 2 decades ago. He has the flair and the cut as a leader but leaders in NS barricaded him to rise.

Give my good regards to Aspan.

Happy new year Sak.

Umno is very weak because the MALAYS TAK CAYA UMNO LAGI.

Umno hope of maintaining power by telling the malays that if pakatan wins,the power of the malays will be eroded because of the presence of DAP.

If you look at all the ketua bahagian in UMNO,all are ORANG TUA who have been holding on to the post for many years because with this position,they can CURI a lot of the RAkyat money.
Any young malays who challenge this orang tua will be politically assisinated.
Come next election,we must TUKAR PARTI YANG MEMERINTAH MALAYSIA if MALAYSIA is to avoid of being another GREECE.
I pray that in 2012,GOD will protect my beautiful country called MALATSIA.

Dato,
I am a non Malay and it will be an honour to kiss your hand for writing like a true Malaysian.
You are one Malay whose intellectual capacity is aeon years above those in UMNO.
Of course there is Aspan and Tunku Aziz whom I also respect.
This country needs more Malays like you.
God Bless You.

Anonymous,  1 January 2012 at 20:39  

You have described DAP in a clear and simple way. I have seen the qualities you mentioned in PAS and DAP ever since I started to follow politics. However, we the Malays have over the years been brainwashed by UMNO through their various propaganda channels - print & electronic media, BTN, army & police forces etc that DAP is communist and supporting DAP equals to betraying Malay race and Islam.

Anyway Sak, it is a good development if you and Aspan are really joining DAP. It will break the perception that DAP is only for the Chinese and probably one day when there are more Malays in DAP, we will have a DAP Prime Minister.

Impressive. Fantastic. If given the choice I will vote you as our next PM. Keep fighting for a better Malaysia.

dahserikngankeris 1 January 2012 at 20:58  

it has begun then dato, please remember these democratic principles that you're championing, if an when Dap has the clout and the number of malay candidates to push for federal government alone, please remember these principles.

the seat of power corrupts, umno, pas or dap.

i have no fear of the DAP, i only fear lobbyist when they bulldoze parliament and make their agendas law....so dato, tell your funder to go choke on a stick if he lobbies you to swing a way that isnt good for the country and its people, ive said what you said too, malays should join the DAP, i salute you in your endavour if it is a pursuit of justice and the betterment of this country, you are a brave malay soul. They'll probably start calling you macam macam already, so happy new year and good luck.

Assalamualaikum Dato' Sak,

For whatever reason that you choose to join, or not to join any organization that you believe will provide the best platform, the decision is entirely up to you.

You do not have to justify to the detractors or supporters. I trust you have outweigh the pros and cons - and reach you own conclusion. You are a conscious adult with a sound mind - and it is up to you. You will win new fans, and detractors. Heck, you already have your own fan and detractors as of now.

The nature of human being means that we will always be divided in our opinion. As long as we decide based on fact, and driven by a noble cause - the truth will prevail - no matter how long it takes.

For whichever platform that you choose, I wish you good luck and all the best.

Now that you have made up your mind - keep the eye on the prize. A Malaysia that is fair, equitable and free from corruption. A Malaysia which values hardworking and detest rent seeking. A Malaysia that will be worth for our future generations to live in.

The work is hard, the road is long - and it will be fraught with danger. You will be up against an enemy who controls the purse, the machinery and the mind of the populace. Aim high, try hard. Work in a jamaah - so you will always have friends and people with the same vision. InsyaAllah you will be successful.

All the best to you Dato'.

Please get more like-minded folks to go to DAP. Maybe, just maybe, Malaysia is worth staying back for.

Datuk, I am a senior citizen of chinese and indonesian descent. Your article has literally moved me to tears. Why? The reason is that it is tears of joy. The joy of discovering a magnanimous malay politician, which I would like to say is a very rare commodity these days. The most touching part is that you have proven to me that an umno or ex-umno member is capable of of calling a spade, a spade. All these years, I harbour the notion that Ku Li is the only honourable man one can ever find in umno. May God protect, bless and have mercy on you and members of your beloved family for the sacrifices that you have made for the betterment of the nation. May the good God also give you abundant wisdom, perseverence and guidance in you daily undertakings. Aman.

Dato,first let me take this oppuntinity to wish you and family a Healthy and Happy New Year.

bruno,  1 January 2012 at 23:27  

Dato,the news of DAP asking your buddy Aspan Alias and you to consider joining the DAP is all over the net.First of all let me put in my two cents worth.If you guys do ever seriously consider joining the DAP,which I doubt you will but if you do,the both of you should stand in Negri Sembilan.
That is a sure way of making another Umno/BN state falling to the PR and an MB'ship for you.

First the bungling moronic Umnoputras got off to a bad start to 2012 by ordering their paid bouncers the PDRM to physically and brutally beat up university avtivist protestors,sending one critically injured to the hospital.A very costly mistake to start an election year.Well,talk about the very highly overpaid strtegists and PR guys in the PM's corner.

Then the guilty till proven innocent kerbau hide Shahrizat sturbornly hanging on her ministerial post.Vowing to take some Umnoputras with her if she goes down.Gutsy lady she is.Got more balls that the PM,DPM and the whole cabinet combined together.

Umno,the party to the Malays has turned into the fear mongerers to the Malays.Bankrupted of ideals
and corrupted to the very
core,Umnoputras and their paid lackeys are all out to feed misinformation to the Malays.


They think that the best way to gain Malay support is to scare the Malays to be afraid of the Chinese and Christians.Stupid Umnoputras
thinking that todays Malays are as
easily be conned as olden days Malays.This is 2012,kawan.How can the DAP Chinese get the PM post reserved for the Malays,
unless Datuk Ariff Sabri is a DAP member of parliament.Umnoputras with kerbau mentality can only used their brains to think like lembus.2012 according to 'feng shui' is a good year for Umno/BN to get a real,very real spanking.

Dato'

To be hard-working, ro score well in exams, to advance in a career with meritocracy, to abhor and condemn corruption and gross injustice, to disagree with the practice of cronyism, plunder and pillage from the nation's coffer, are all deemed to be anti- Malay, anti-islam and anti-monarchy. That is UMNO's vision for the Malays.

Deunan Knute,  2 January 2012 at 00:17  

Dear Dato'

I was hoping for you to join PAS but since you mentioned DAP, it is just as good!

I'd like to see the Chinese joining Dewan Himpunan Penyokong PAS and the Malays joining DAP in droves, just to show diversity! ;-) Maybe you can lead the way!

OneMalaysian,  2 January 2012 at 00:34  

Dear Sakmongkol

2012 seems to start with a bang, at least for you. In the early spring of 2011, in Tunis, a young fruit seller, frustrated with the corrupt and incompetent government of Tunisia, doused himself in petrol, lit a match and unknowingly started a revolution that they now call the Arab Spring. Mohamed Bouazizi was like the buttery who by flapping its tiny wings started a wind movement that eventually developed into a storm.

So I hope in great earnest that we might witness in 2012 a similar political storm that will blow away this corrupt and inept government. Will the Malays be as ready and as courageous as the downtrodden and oppressed Arabs? We shall see. But they will need a butterfly to start it all. And who might this butterfly be?

TheMoLe,  2 January 2012 at 01:25  

Way to go, if more Malays think like you and work together for a better Malaysia, then we will beat Singapore within 10 years given the blessed land we have! More jobs, better security, high ranking university, efficient transportation, higher value money, fair system, etc.

azmie 2 January 2012 at 02:34  

again we are harping on partisan issues. is it too hard to understand, its not about the party. so who cares about the party you are joining, or hv joined, its all about democracy, justice and peace in this blessed country, which umno and bn failed horribly to deliver. its high time to make changes

Injustice Hater,  2 January 2012 at 03:45  

Happy new year and may Allah bless you and your family. Good move and I hope Prof. Aziz Bari will follow your footstep but just be careful.With the 3 of you joining the Rocket, they'll be more right-minded malays eager to join too.

Salam dan Selamat Tahun Baru 2012 Dato' Ariff,

Aku baca dalam Posting WZWH mengenai perkara ini. Aku rasa lah Dato' SAK dan AA jangan abil pusing dan pedulikan apa yang di post kan oleh WZWH. Aku setuju dengan kata AA, penulis itu masih lembut ubun kepala dan masih kencing bercabang lagi. Dia tulis itu ada tujuan , antara nya aku rasa:

1.HEndak duit kot.
2. hendak jadi calon, dia lah terbaik.
3. hendak kan pangkat, penulis itu penjawat awam.
4. pusing 360 darjah, keran budak ini pernah lutu PM dan MB nya.
5. atau ada orang suroh.

Lagi pun di a tak kata dato dan AA joint PAS atau PKR, tapi joint DAP, kerana DAP ini ada sikit tetrasa gatal dek orang Melayu, krna sejarah masa lalu.


ATAU budak itu dah bangkrap idea atau nak tarik perhatian lebih.

Dear Dato,please forgive me for thinking before that most if not all Umno members sucks,that is beside Ayah Li,then you came along,finally,how I wish that you awoken much2 earlier then perhaps we wouldn't have to suffer(as Malays) this perception of being lump together with the Umno Malays,we Malays can really Boleh n change our future together with our other Malaysian Brothers n Sisters who had been crying,huddled together in an alley way,we shall arise n correct what is wrong with this great country of ours,I am but a small man,but you have my sincerest blessing whichever way you go,May Allah protect you n Bless you n your family always n guide you on the right path.Amin

DATO
Very well written article and is very true what is happening in Malaysia now. The UMNOputras are creating fear by cheating & lying to the poor kampung folks about the Chinese becoming PM, including changing to Christian country etc.
They now felt threatened & fear that their 54 years of governing Malaysia through cronyism, corruption, raping & stealing the country's wealth through unwarranted & wasteful mega projects may come to an end. This is b'cos more & more Malays are becoming more literate & realized the current plundering, multi million/billion $$ scandals, raping & suicididal decisions made by the present Gomen. If they don't stand up & change the present Gomen now it may be too late as the blessed, loving & rich country will go bankrupt sooner than expected. This is a reality as the world now is in financial crisis and the country's black gold is depleting fast due to excessive mining, the huge capital outflow billions of $$ by the corrupted leaders, eg the white rajah of Sarawak, Toyo, Ling Ling Sek, Sami, Mamak Kutty, etc.
The introduction of the NEP (New Economic Policy) as this is a good policy to alleviate the Malays' financial and education status which was supposed to have ended years ago but was hijacked, raped & sodomizes by the elite UMNOputras & their cronies by getting mega projects, getting billions of kick-backs from inflated & negotiated contracts, procurement of defence equipment and leaving the crumbs to the poor & simple minded Malays.
The PDRM, MACC and other enforcement agencies practised selective prosecutions & charge their political masters with under minimal offences while the others on the maximum offences. Although MACC has begun to bring up several very old cases but at least a good start Why can't they bring up those new & glaring cases? What are they afraid of? Fear of losing their nasi periuk if they don't follow their political masters' orders?
However we must not forget those good projects & development brought about by the Gomen eg MDec which pursued the IT, allowed Malaysians to communicate & expressed their thoughts & frustrations through this media as all the main print medias are being controlled by the Gomen & it's cronies. news against them are being suppressed and they do propagate their own political agenda. The highway is also very good as it shortened the traveling time and more conducive driving BUT to pay high toll to their cronies. The Gomen should either reduce the road tax drastically or abolish it To my knowledge, the road tax is partly for the upkeep & maintenance of the roads.
KLCC Twin Towers, KL Tower, KLIA (now KLIA2), (why need to build new airport when the current one is very under utilized. Furthermore they can just expand the terminals instead. F1Sepang Racing Circuit (greatly underutilized), new Palace - the old one more nostalgic & strategic for tourists, National car project (having to susidise & also paying extraordinarily high import duties unnecessarily), Putrajaya (built far too ahead of time, maybe more than 1/2 century as it is currently very much unutilized) to name a few are icons to Malaysia. Are ee proud to tell the world we are going great to achieving developed nation? To me and many Good Malaysians are not b'cos they are either too far ahead of time, wasting $$ by billions or just spending too extravangsaly and foolishly. This could be due to enriching themselves instead of the nation's interest at heart.
Let's all Malaysians SAVE THE NATION FROM BECOMING BANKRUPT & FREE FROM RACIAL DIVIDE & HATRED, CORRUPTION, BULLYING & FEAR SYNDROME by changing the current Gomen in the coming GE13. IT IS NOW OR NEVER, an evergreen song sung by the late Elvis Presley.

Dato,should the Malays be afraid of the Chinese,Christians or the DAP as fear mongered by Abrahim Ali
and the Umno paid bloggers.Or should they be very afraid of the Umno controlled goons known as the PDRM and FRU.The Umno controlled
thugs were plummelling,bashing and stomping University student protesters in Tanjong Malim.

It was a peaceful protest that did not need the intervention of the police.The students would have disperse by themselves later anyway.It was a show of force by the authorities to discourage future protests.It is a prelude towards Jan. 9th that the worse is yet to come.

Datok, I had in fact wanted to ask you whether the rumours that DAP had approached you to join the party was true or not. But now that you have written this wonderful post, I think I will just shut my mouth instead. But if you do indeed decide to join DAP, you have all my best wishes. Perhaps it may just be the spark that leads the way to Putrajaya. DAP certainly needs more capable Malays in the party to unshackle the perception that it is a Chinese only party.

Another good read Dato. Your joining the opposition will be like icing on the cake. We have lost a friend in RPK but there's always good men like yourself to continue the fight. Opposition is no longer about Anwar but about fighting for a better Malaysia. Those who hold such believe are very welcome no matter which side you have been before. The BN has lost our trust and the legitimacy to continue as the government.

Anonymous,  2 January 2012 at 09:58  

Dato if it is really true that you will be joining the opposition, DAP would be the right vehicle for you. PKR is crowded with too many ex-Umno people who are there to grab power. What you have written about DAP is true. In fact, people join MCA because they thought that DAP was not fighting enough for the Chinese whereas every statement that comes out of MCA is all about Chinese. It would be great to see DAP being represented by a Malay minister in future. Good luck and God bless Dato.

THE CONCEPT 2 January 2012 at 10:03  

Happy New Year, Dato.
I am most surprised that so many people commented on your perceived decisions. I believed you should allow all comments including vulgar or indecent (as long as non race hate comment). We may then see many more panicky umno cyber trooper trying to please their paymaster.

By the way, I read most of your blogs and the accompanying comments and noted that all those who dispute your opinions almost always did so in the most uncouth manners (kurang ajar). Cannot be upbringing as most kampong elders that i know are very courteous folks so it must be the poor education (Bad Talk Nasional) they received which made them not able to express in a civil way like Dato do.

Keep up the good work and best wishes to you and family in this new 2012.

Syabas for standing up against tyranny and spin doctors. At the end of the day, the rakyat will decide at the ballot box.

Malaysians are fed up with all the scandals and plundering.

God bless you.

NutGraph's 'MP Watch' Project:
Nutgraph asked the MPs the questions below:

Reply from

Name: Tony Pua Kiam Wee
Constituency: PJ Utara
Party: DAP (Opposition)
Years as MP: Since 2008

1)Would you support the abolition/review of the Internal Security Act, in particular the provision that allows for detention without trial?

There’s no question that I would support the abolition or massive review of the ISA. It would probably be better to abolish it and establish a new Act to deal with terrorists. The reason is simple — we have rule of law, everyone deserves his [or her] day in court and there’s no reason for anyone to be detained without trial for an extended period of time.

We can understand an urgent provision to have one week to detain someone. But anything beyond that, the government should have sufficient time to obtain the necessary information to charge the person in court or to release him [or her].

2)Do you think Malaysia should be a secular or an Islamic state? Why?

Malaysia should be a secular state. I believe a secular state is the best form of government that is able to protect the rights and institutions of all religions, including Islam.

A theocratic state, based on religious principles, is subject to abuse as it is subject to interpretation by [humans]. The best way to protect any religion in the country is through a secular state where everyone is free to practise his or her religion.

3) How do you define your role as an elected MP? Does Parliament provide you with the necessary infrastructure and support to fulfill your role?

The role of an MP is to bring up issues that affect the people, help improve governance and contribute towards nation building. We should make policies that would make the country a better place to live in.

Unfortunately, Parliament is extremely lacking in providing the necessary infrastructure. In Parliaments and congresses overseas, MPs and congress [members] are given plenty of resources, including finances for hiring research analysts and so on. We have none of that here. The only subsidy we get is for hiring a driver.

4) Would you support a Freedom of Information Act? Why or why not?

Yes, I would support a Freedom of Information Act. This would allow civil society and the public to gain critical information on how government policies and decisions are made and to be able to critique as well as monitor the government’s performance.

Without this information, it would be difficult to judge the government’s performance, and the degree of wastage and inefficiency will only increase without sufficient monitoring.

5) If there was one thing you could do to strengthen parliamentary democracy in Malaysia, what would it be?

The most important element is having free and fair elections. We need a free media without controls such as the Printing Presses and Publications Act, and the Sedition Act. Those are essential elements for a healthy and vibrant parliamentary democracy.

6) Do you believe in separation of powers between the government, Parliament and judiciary? Why or why not?


Yes, I believe in the separation of powers. It is important, otherwise Parliament becomes a rubber stamp for the executive, which it is today. No matter how much is debated, whether for or against the policies put forward by the government, whether by Barisan Nasional (BN) or by the opposition, none of it is amended.

For example, on [5 April 2010], during the Strategic Trade Bill debate, Ledang MP [Hamim Samuri] questioned why enforcement powers were given to Miti (Ministry of International Trade and Industry) and not the Home Ministry. It was a good question, by a BN MP, but of course, when it came to voting, it didn’t matter.

Eric Mudasi 2 January 2012 at 10:44  

NutGraph's 'MP Watch' Project:
Nutgraph asked them the questions below:

Reply From:

Name: M Kulasegaran
Constituency: Ipoh Barat

Party: DAP (Opposition)
Years as MP:
1997 – 1999 (Teluk Intan, by-election)
2004 – 2008 (Ipoh Barat)
2008 – (Ipoh Barat)


1) Would you support the abolition/review of the Internal Security Act (ISA), in particular the provision that allows for detention without trial? Why or why not?

I fully endorse the abolishment of the ISA. Detention without trial violates the fundamental democratic principle that every person has a right to a fair and open trial.

Passed in 1960 as a law intended to deal with the communist threat, the ISA has long been used against a host of offences unrelated to “communist threats”, or, for that matter, to internal security.

More than five decades later, it continues to be used to trample on Malaysians’ human rights and to stifle legitimate political dissent and democratic voices.

2) Do you think Malaysia should be a secular or an Islamic state? Why?

The framers of the Federal Constitution [considered] Malaysia a secular country. The social contract we entered [into] when Malaysia was formed in 1957 was based on secular principles.

We must bear in mind that Malaysia is a multiracial country. Hence Malaysia should be a secular country, where the justice, freedom and equality pursued by the people is based on and is compatible with the principles of democracy, and not an Islamic state.

3) How do you define your role as an elected MP? Does Parliament provide you with the necessary infrastructure and support to fulfill your role?

As an MP, my role is to be the voice of the people inside and outside Parliament. My responsibilities will include debates on government policies and solving the people’s grievances and problems. As an opposition MP, I am expected, in particular, to be a watchdog of the government’s policies.

Parliament should provide more assistance to MPs in terms of full-time researchers and allocating funds to carry out minor development in our constituencies.

4) Would you support a Freedom of Information Act? Why or why not?

Yes, I fully support the FOI Act. In a democracy, [we are answerable to the people], and their right to know must be respected. FOI encourages openness and transparency, and hence, accountability. Transparency will help in preventing or minimising governmental corruption and abuses of power.

5) If there was one thing you could do to strengthen parliamentary democracy in Malaysia, what would it be?

To go all out to engage fellow Malaysians from all walks of life to enhance their awareness of, commitment to, and participation in the democratic process and in political development.

6) Do you believe in separation of powers between the government, Parliament and judiciary? Why or why not?

I certainly do. There can be no true, vibrant and healthy democracy without separation of powers to act as a check and balance on the three branches of power, namely the executive, the Parliament and the judiciary.

Anonymous,  2 January 2012 at 10:46  

Dato,

Sometime back in Sept 2011, I’ve, by chance, contributed some comments on my home visit to M’sia in Art Harun’s blog.

I think the relevancies of those comments r worth repeating here. Just zero in on the meme of the Malay M’sians as described.

Here it goes;

A simple test - just ask any Malay M'sian about Harris/DAP, u will get the same Chinese chauvinistic/Malay bashing theme coming out from them. Some of the respondents don't even know who Harris/DAP have done/said! The answer is so natural such that it fits well into the description of a cultural meme as theorized by Dr Dawkin. It's not genetic but 100% culture influenced.

U might be LTIF now but that subconscious trace shows. It's just that u, either don't want to know &/or u don't care. It's within yr subconscious mind anyway. U have been type-casted to hate that image, programmed by yr surroundings, ie anything linked, no matter how remotely, to Harris/DAP is detrimental to the Malay race. PERIOD.

BTW cultural meme is not racial stereotyping. Do hope u get the difference.

Let me remind u and yr fellow Malaysians of yr subconscious tendency of irrationality.

Here's that reminder from an ancient experiment on monkey, done not by Pavlov BUT with similar conclusion.

10 monkeys were caged within a comfortable confinement. They were provided with enough daily necessities to make their living condition, well 'enjoyable'.

Then a bunch of fresh banana was hanged from the centre of the ceiling. Any monkey that tried to pluck the enticing banana would resulted in ALL 10 of them been water sprayed heavily.

After a few banana attempts, & with the resulting water-baths, NO monkey was daring enough to touch the banana anymore. Life, that's monkey life, went on as old way - leave the banana alone then there wouldn't be water-spraying punishment.

Then one new monkey from outside was introduced to substitute an existing one within the cage.

The surprise thing was every time when this new monkey tried to go near the banana, it was attacked by the other 9. Eventually the new comer learned not to touch the banana also.

Now a second new monkey is introduced into the cage to replaced another member of the first group of monkey.

Every time when this new 2nd monkey tried to go near the banana, it was also attacked by the other 9. Eventually, this second new monkey also learned not to go near the banana.

This pattern recurred when 3rd, 4th, 5th till the 9th replacement. By then, all the 1st generation monkey has been replaced & this group of monkey had NO memory of heavy water-spraying if anyone tried to touch the banana.

Now whenever a new member is introduced into the monkey cage, if it ever tried its hand on the banana, the other entire monkeys would attack it.

The group attack becomes an impulsive nature, with no any logical reason behind it.

This is cultured meme.

It's the same as Chinese don't like number 4, Malay don't like dog. Not that 4 or dog would cause any calamity to any of these group of people.

So Harrisphobia anyone?’

So, see the works of the umno done to yr people??????

LaM 2 January 2012 at 10:49  

There are a lot of smart and intelligent malays in this country who abhor corruption and abuse of power. But they are not in Umno and they won't associate themselves with Umno.

1. UMNO can no longer be changed from within, so leaving it is a sensible choice.

2. Be prepared for backlash and cursings from UMNO, as well as future attacks and obstacles they may place against you.

3. Pursue what you think is right. Save Malaysia from sinking in debts. Strive for an honest and equitable Malaysia.

4. Beware of some rotten apples in DAP. Don't let them dishearten you if you ever come across them. (Still, there are less of these rotten ones in DAP than in BN/UMNO).

5. Make DAP a truly multiracial Malaysian political party, not only in ideals but in physical composition. I may be a Chinese but I would like to see DAP serving our Malay brothers too.

Anonymous,  2 January 2012 at 13:31  

Its a new hope for Malaysia. DAP is not Chinese, and its never a race based party. If the causes serve all, by all means, support it. If the leaders are not sincere, then by all means, change them.

Anonymous,  2 January 2012 at 13:32  

Dear Dato,

As an observer of Malaysian politics, DAP seems to be very focused on building a truly Malaysian society, devoid of racial or religious bias. I have deep respect for PAS but have some reservations as there are elements in the party that strives hard to work with the devil UMNO. In the end, I'm not surprised that PAS may one day team up with UMNO when their present excellent leaders call it a day. As for PKR, it is a party more focused on getting political power with many BN rejects holding positions there. Therefore, Dato would be better off joining DAP as they always think and act on the bigger picture to build a truly Malaysian society, living in peace and harmony. The world is changing and the trend is now is devoid of racial or religious leanings (seeds to racial and religious infighting of the past). Frankly speaking, DAP is more Islamic than PAS or PKR in terms of fairness and justice to all.

Redza 2 January 2012 at 15:53  

I think Dato, you have good intentions in joining DAP but that move will backfire for sure. Your move to join DAP will be painted as DAP courting the Malays to be their agents to help them take over Malaysia. This will further increase the fear among Malays and will likely motivate them more to vore UMNO. That label are now in tact for Tunku Abdul Aziz( VC DAP) and Zahril( Lim Guang Eng aide) and hope that Dato will have not and will not be labelled as such. It is wiser to join PKR until the perception of the Malays on DAP as anti- Malay and anti Islam are less apparent. Or else the fear factor of the Malays due to you move will only benefit UMNO.

Bosan 2 January 2012 at 16:19

I consider it my privilege to have met you at the Frenz of Penang social media convention recently and to have heard you speak there.

I have always taruh you for being an armchair UMNO critic who has no guts to leave UMNO nor lambast UMNO in the Malay language.

If rumours of you joining DAP are true, then I must eat my words.

What you have done have far surpassed my expectations. When you could have chosen to leave UMNO and walk on neutral ground, you have instead chosen to walk into the lions' den by taking this political step to the extreme to join what people have perceived to be a Chinese party. And you must have done a lot of thinking and soul-searching to make this extreme decision.

You have my utmost respect for listening to your heart and your conscience.

The road ahead will be treacherous. It may bode well for you, for DAP and also for Malaysia or it may turn into another PKR-Zaid Ibrahim saga. Let's hope the people in DAP and you have Malaysia and Malaysians in your hearts and that the country comes first, not personal political power.

Myth

1) DAP is a democratic party?? Well I know Sakmongkol is an educated person to realize that it is not democratic as it claimed to be. At least not better than UMNO

2) Rule of law, good governance and good government?? Well. The recent issue which one of their PKR councilor resigned because of interference and bulldozing of SPICE project proves that DAP is not what it claimed it to be.

3) Corruption and abuse of political office. Well I think the second myth more or less related with this one. Oh ya. Not to forget the TBH case. They are lucky not to be exposed. Hey. Big amount or small amount it is still a corruption right?

Well. I am lazy to type but the post 2008 DAP can't claimed those above mentioned titles anymore.

Indeed,he was probably the first Malay to stand for election on a DAP ticket for the ADUN seat of ULU BERNAM, Selangor. He lost by a margin of about 400 votes. If he has won, then Selangor would have been won by the opposition by a simple majority of two and May13 could have been averted.
His name is Lamsah Azhari.

In his name I wish you success.

2.. in 1969 did lks led a victory procession to finish off the malays.

If 1 and 2 is true, cant i label those so called liberals Malays are ingrates and traitors?

Dato',

You are absolutely correct that Malays should not fear DAP. Instead Malays should fear UMNO because UMNO has an insatiable lust for corruption, pillage and plundering of the country's resources at the expense of the Malays. Malays should fear UMNO because UMNO will ultimately destroy the Malays and Tanah Melayu.

DAP is a socialist party that caters for the poor and the oppressed people.
Poor people like me, the poor Malays,the poor Indians, the poor dayaks, the poor beggars, the poor workers of any race etc have one thing in common and that is poverty.
Poverty because the rich Chinese,the rich Malays and the rich Indians are working together to plunder us the poor. To the rich robbers, they are colour blind and race to these rich robbers means nothing.What means a lot is plundering the poor people.

I have always been of the opinion that the good and intelligent Malays are the ones who are going to save the country. I long for those days when I can socialise with my Malay friends without them feeling guilty or concious of our differences. We love to see the poor Malays uplifted with proper education and work ethics. There are many intelligent Malays in the Kampongs who do not have the opportunity to excel. I was born and raised in Raub. I am the NSW visitor to your blog. Like all other parents, we left because we were concerned for the future of the next generation. It was always us and them, but the new Malays like you and Aspan will help the country move in the right direction again. Allah's blessing be upon you.

masuk cepat-cepat dalam DAP untuk buktikan DAP tak racist dan tak amalkan nepostisme & kronisme.

mana tau kot setelah join DAP, saudara dapat bukti sahih dan clear bahawa Lim Kit Siang tu hanya baru 5 tahun saja menguasai DAP.

Lim Guan Eng pulak mana tahu saudara dapat buktikan bukannya anak Lim kit Siang, so automatically takdelah amalan nepotisme kroni dlm DAP.

Lain-lain bukti yg saudara boleh dapat bila masuk DAP barangkali bukti sahih Karpal singh anak beranak yg jadi ahli parlimen tu sebenarnya anak angkat kot.

pendek kata selepas menyertai DAP, mungkin saudara dapat jumpa bukti bahawa DAP bukan dikuasai oleh dinasti Lim dan Karpal, ia bukan parti keluarga sebaliknya parti yg penuh demokrasi terpimpin, tiada salah laku rasuah & penyelewengan tender dan semuanya suci bersih lebih islemic agaknya.

selamat maju jaya, selamat tahun baru.

A fellow Chinese businessman recently complained that he still need to pay undertable money in selangor and the triads are having a field day with DAP controlling selangor.

Have u heard selangor announce any low cost / affordable homes. No? They do have it but too embarrased to announce the number. But reality is DAP don't care coz these buyers of low income are mainly Malays and are better off without own homes. Much better to sell or develop for higher income Chinese .

You tell the Malays not to fear DAP? Now those Malays who voted DAP in 2008 sudah gigit jari.

Let's not go into Penang. Same story.

Now if pakatan wins, which will be the one to fear? PAS? PKR? DAP?

We all know who PAS and PKR fear in Selangor & Penang...

Dato,

Never would I have imagined you joining DAP,
The party that UMNO loves to bash and demonise!
Now that you and Pak Aspan are in DAP, perhaps my fellow Malaysian Malays would not see it as a threat to them.

Thank you Dato (and Pak Aspan)for giving us hope AGAIN that this country belongs to ALL Malaysians! For many of us, this is the only country we know and loved.

Now, it would be beyond my wildest imagination if TRH join DAP too.

Meng,  3 January 2012 at 02:07  

I'm a Malaysian Ph.D student presently living in Paris, France. It is very heartening to see Bumiputras such as Aspan and yourself being open minded enough to join the DAP. Many overseas Malaysians would like to call Malaysia home once more, but sadly present governmental policies make it rather distasteful to contemplate such a move.

As an aspiring political economists (I am writing my thesis in the application of the economics of identity on political economy) it is of great interests for me to see how the political situation plays out back home.

Regardless, I wish you all the best in your endeavor for the future of Malaysia. Be one of our shining beacons for our common future.

Salam Dato,

This article of yours evokes much emotion in me.....it is heart-warming to know that you will be joining the DAP.

This is the news of 2012! Congratulations and I believe, a person of your capability, IQ and EQ will soar and excel in DAP and for Malaysia.

Wish you every success.

Welcome aboard Dato'
Malaysia needs you. With a mind like yours, how could UMNO leave you on the outer if they were really serious about the country?
Pahang definitely needs you. I think Pahang has just found their very own LGE.
Wish you all the best. Malaysia's future looks a lot brighter today.

Dear Sak,

None that I want to say is not already said. For a better Malaysia, way to go Sir!

Good write up. Nothing really new in terms of the perception most malaysians have about corruption, bad intentions and the like. However, the point that needs to be spread further down channel is that DAP serves the rakyat better than UMNO. It is not about race and religion, but about good governance.

Cheers. KSD

Dato,

I have been an avid follower of your blog since wayback. I find your comments very refreshing and often profound. I may not agree with every one of your views but I respect your rights to your thoughts on Malaysian politics. More so because I perceive them to be from a neutral and non-partisan citizen who is concerned about the sorry state of the nation and where it is heading. To me your credibility lies in your independence from party politics and agendas and your views are respected because of this factor.

But, I think, the moment you are percieved to be a mouthpiece of a political party, regardless of the merits of its contents, your views will be suspect of being compromised by party agendas; in the way of the blogs of Tunku Abd.Aziz(DAP), Din Merican(PKR), Jeff Ooi(DAP) and Big Dog(UMNO).

So please, for the sake of all Malaysians who cares and need neutral guidance, please stay independent. Party politics, as we all know, are all the same with their main agenda of how to grab power and/or how to retain it forever.

To echo Azmie's comments below:
"...its not about the party,.... its all about democracy, justice and peace in this blessed country, which umno and bn failed horribly to deliver. its high time to make changes."

Salam.

The way the writer articulates as if DAP members are angels! Are they really corrupt free? Are they really practice democracy? How about conflict between Karpal and Ramasamy? Karpal and Anwar differ in Islamization views, how ?

DAP is not a democratic party. PERIOD

More like a communist one party man rule it all Lim the 'dear leader'. Before this it was the dad now the son.

Please la DAP fanboys. DOnt tell me that you guys believe that DAP is a democratic party. The CEC of the party gobsmacked the notion of democracy in DAP. A simple 'you jaga I I jaga you' arrangement to maintain power.

Penang is a great example of ongoing plan of denaturalizing the island from its Malay influence. A demographic change. SPiCE project is one of the grand design. How many Malays able to buy the properties from this project. And they have the gall to say they fight for socialist ideology.

ATM make sure you have your base there and stock it up with Malays only army ok.

DAP is a hypocrite party. Plain simple

Let Sak decide to be with DAP and i hope he will.He is no more relevent to UMNO .We do not need member who hit UMNO below the belt just to impress the opposition and their supporters .He can start a new political career with DAP We do not a bad apple in any organisation.It is better to clear these bad apples .He has nothing good to talk of UMNO/BN anyway.You do not deserve to be a member of UMNO because you have no LOYALTY and that you are a DURI DALAM DAGING in UMNO.Good luck

if UMNO is such a democratic part like what most cyber troopers said; we would have a great PM in the name of Tengku Razaleigh and decency of politics restored long ago. if DAP is being accused of being so undemocratic; i wonder what people should make of UMNO? what is all these so-called winnable UMNO candidates? if the grassroots chose their leaders as per their whims and democratic rights in the party; why the heck is the UMNO leadership over-riding the grass-roots choice? by definition of UMNO's democratic philosophy; what makes the central leaderships' decision more democratic than the grass-roots choice? UMNO cyber-troopers speaking with flawed logic and a forked tongue (double-speak)

kampong Man,  5 January 2012 at 09:49  

Sak,I have thought all the while that this man Sak will one day leave UMNO from the writings that i see here in your blog.I think you should.There is no place for anyone who continue bad mouthing his own party by washing its dirty linen in the public.Remember Sak,i am no UMNO member like you do and not even a politician let alone an MP.Who cares whether one is MP or not.I have seen many stupid MP fom both sides in the Parliament but there are many good ones as well of course.The issue here is PERJUANGAN party.Yes,there are people in any party who capitalise their position to gain favours.This i see from both sides not just UMNO.These are the people that we must get rid off.I would have preferred your ideas and contributions be forwarded and discussed within the party.

Since when is DAP championing the RAKYAT ? I have different views on DAP honestly.DAP to me is still a racist party,a secular party that are always at odd with anything Islam.A party whose ideals and aspirations differs greatly to the wishes of MAJORITY Rakyat, Malays/Islam in this country.No wonder they are rejected by many except in the urban areas.Their Malaysian Malaysia and meritocracy ideals are not well accepted by many due to the uneven playing field ,the gap of rich and the hardcore poor,the have and the have nots that still exist and a copy of PAP Singapore model that is not workable in Malaysia environment. DAP is never a party for the Malays/Islam,period, say what you want on their ideals.I respect your decision to be with DAP should you finally choose so BUT as a professional man i cannot accept perjuangan DAP till this day.Cakap tak serupa bikin and they lack SINCERERITY.DAP has to learn to fit in the wishes of the majority rakayat berbilang kaum dan ugama.This acceptance , tolerance and moderation UMNO/BN have.

All these shouts of corruptions, cronyism are all political election propaganda which is a normal scene in Malaysian politics from both sides.I look at the bigger picture for Malaysia NOT all the maki hamun on cows etc.If Shahrizat has to go and proven corrupted by all means get out of UMNO but UMNO must remain and continue to be relevent.I too strongly am against corruption .It happens everyday and everywhere in this world Penang and Selangor included.We must weed this out as we see one.
Sak, i am a level headed guy just like you do just as qualifies as you are .In fact i have gone to University even before you step your feet at MU.Remember those days when MU was the only university in Malaya !!Competition was stiff and i could not get a place in the Engineering Faculty for reasons you know why though i am qualifed and what kind of percentage of Kampong boys can be placed in that faculty.Despite all the negative remarks on your blog i have to differ on your approach in your perjuangan against UMNO and I am submitting my membership form joining UMNO for the first time in my life this week.I will contribute to unite all Malaysians through UMNO and BN.I am for the continuity of the present Government who actually has delivered for the RAKYAT and who has that 54 years length of track record,adirable !.I will make sure UMNO/BN continue contributing positively for the Rakyat in a bigger way because i have faith in their bigger PERJUANGAN for Malaysians.I fear the UNCERTAINTIES in this PR coalition and I dont believe PR can deliver let alone capture Putrajaya in my observation so far.Prove me wrong.PR may win the battle BUT not the war Sak.Have a good day and Thank you for allowing this little space for my thought.

Great news!! one more rational thinking true Malaysian have spoken. The years of indoctrinations from UMNO to the malays have done great damages and the practice of racial segregation rather than racial integration by them is disgusting. Everyday we are reminded of our racial differences i.e. kaum M,C,T but not Malaysian !!
I salute your guts for telling the truth !!

Anonymous,  5 January 2012 at 12:21  

dear dato,

looking at the comments here there are many who support u if u go into dap and there are equally many who has qualms about it too..

those who oppose often bring up pap and may13 while harboring on umno's past successes/contribution.

of course they forgot or not being told that limkitsiang is in east malaysia when may13 happened but somehow his d*ck was pissing at umno/malaysian flag in kampung bahru.

i think u and know very well we are living in the present, not in the past. this has somehow became an umno vs dap discussion. so lets look at the current newsmakers and for what reason they are in the news...end of discussion.

good day,

ali

Some of the UMNO cybertroopers here are so brainwashed by BTN.
That is why a large majority of the Malays in Malaysia cant progress in this globalised world.
UMNO has been championing for the Malays for more than half a century
and yet most of them are "saperti katak dibawah tempurung". Whose fault?

You are telling the world what a weakling unmo malays are. Can't even survive in their own country if not rule by umno.
Some professor actually claim the the malay civilization was as old as 3000 to 5000 years then how come they always need a tongkat umno to survive or they will surely loss out to the other race especially the Chinese whose civilization is also 5000 year-old.
Ah this proved that umno is a failure all these years of the Umno malays actually had a weaker gene.
In deep thought

Dato', on your comment about the May 13 incident, many books I have read seem to point the finger at ex-Home Minister Syed Albar's father, UMNO's then Sec-Gen [Tan Sri] Syed Jaafar bin Hassan Albar who was the chief rabble rouser for Tun Razak and gang. In fact, it seems the Tunku sacked him soon after Singapore was ousted or broke from the Federation of Malaysia.

But that is just one of those versions. I never thought he'd be reborn as Ibrahim Ali.

Dato,

40 years ago when I was just seven and a small and skinny boy, I saw Pak Awang worked for my grandpa as a rubber tapper. My grandpa only employed Pak Awang and sometime his son Ali would come and help his father.Pak Awang had a rather big family and grandpa provided a piece of land with a house for his whole family.Pak Awang's family was poor and live from hand to mouth. That was 40 years ago.

Today if you look around, you can see many Malays are still living poor.UMNO/BN which governed the country for these 40 years has done very little to lift the plight of many poor Malays. Rather the guys of UMNO/MCA/MIC are getting filthy rich.Why? Because they are feeding themselves and ignoring the poor masses.

In Malaysia, there are not many races but only two races. They are the RICHs and the POORs. The POORs are the 99%.

In US they occupied Wall Street. The next GE occupies Putrajaya.

Congratulation if PR makes it there!!!

but on the eve of CNY, while waiting for my transport at Pavilion, i saw some Malays flashing their real mean " toys " and one or two in their mid 20s had hot malay elite chicks. Real polished, even the expats beside us were speechless with those showy childish elites.

Half an hour away, in the pocket of metropolitan kl, Malay, Chinese and Indian families from the poor income group are struggling.

What not injustice.

Salam hormat Lok1, your comment on Jan 2 2012, Quote," .. then perhaps we wouldn't have to suffer (as Malays) this perception of being lump together with the Umno Malays,

we, Malays can really Boleh n change our future together with our other Malaysian Brothers n Sisters who had been crying, huddled together
in an alley way,

we shall arise n correct what is wrong with this great country of ours, I am but a small man .. " Unquote.

Your heartfelt comment certainly evoke justification that there are many Malays who are so nice and truly fair and mindful, addressed as Malays in alternative parties alongside all Malaysians. You certainly are a magnanimous man from your comments above.

Keep your prayers sincere and fervent, as many mindful Malaysians share your cries and plights for real changes in camaraderie in many political avenues.

However, there are still several who are non politicians, but really mindful, broadminded, professionals in UMNO, certainly hope they will not join, but Leave, and not be left high and dry with the massive inefficiency, grafts, gutter politicking, and be confused by some leaders with maliciousness in the party.

m in silence now, thinking about what had been allowed to breed for decades, but the break of a bright dawn is looming for our beloved nation.

GOD must help us, and we must help ourselves by being courageous to VOTE with eyes that listen (medical term) and say NO to apathy, NO to the injustice and pain of our fellow Malaysians and giving New Hopes to our present and future generations! Cheers Sak.

Having to work 12 hour - shift a day which involves challenging heavy labor, confined to the rig, battered by storms, being away from home, for many oil and gas employees, the highly attractive salary and perks and about 3 months holiday entitlement ( is it in Msia ? ) is kind of hard to resist, but an appropriate reward.

This aside, perhaps, the concerns and requirements are :
- The demand for expatriates as drilling engineers,
test engineers, project managers,etc will
continue to escalate globally, so is the fat salary package. Hence, it is certainly far-sighted for our national oil companies to engage Malaysians only for most categories of jobs. The ratio of multiracial Malaysians should be increased greatly to create many new jobs and to retain brilliant talents. And the ratio of multiracial Malaysian employees in their subsidiaries in overseas must be increased. Bearing in mind, we need to be fair to the locals there as well.

- Our Oil & Gas companies benefit the most from high oil prices worldwide, hence, it is mandatory and justified to increase the royalties, and to pay them promptly to the state governments regardless of political leadership. This will be seen as being accountable, democratic and patriotic to the Rakyat of the states and their development.

- How scholarships are awarded to Malaysians to study abroad in the related fields should be transparent, taking a " walk in the park " to ground zero of applicants’ homes; the ratio of multiracial increased, only to those on merits be they from the kampong or urban areas as this sector requires intensified intelligence as in all professional jobs.

- And children of its staff, perhaps hardworking aduns across M'sia,too can apply for the perks of : free - interest loan for their children to study abroad.

Its board members, political leaders and their kins, parent, or parents drawing a combined high monthly income salary must be eliminated from the application process. They are, aren’t they ? But huh .....

- After being trained, the critical concern for the past few years is some have migrated, perhaps, it is time, the “prospective brain drain ” are required to have multiracial interns under their wings, their knowledge, work experience, skills transferred akin to giving back to the company and communities.

Perhaps this needs to be evaluated by the superiors periodically before the clearance and the golden shake. As in any international organisations, sharing of, learning and teaching of skills is never an issue, but expected in an excellent conducive international work environment and high collaboration team work.

-What new sustainable economies and thousands of new jobs being created for the local Malaysian communities, including meaningful part-time jobs for retirees in O & G ?

- A substantial part of the profits is to be transferred to tangible developments for the local communities providing mobile clinics, mobile libraries, providing teaching resources, sports equipment, curricular activities with competent trainers to benefit Malaysians’ children from the middle and lower income segment. This will bring a progressive learning experience to Malaysians children and youths how to be diligent and progressive.

- Bravo, an Oil & Gas company’s staff have been involved in community works as well as environmental works. Should be intensified. Perhaps, the expats and the board members, too, ha ha ha we’ll see Kampong Man rolling up his sharp white sleeves more !

- With pressure from the public, Petronas Philharmonic Hall,at the KLCC Twin Tower is now accessible to all Malaysians who love music. Bravo… Any excellent facilities provided by our Oil & Gas companies must be accessible, user-friendly and staffed by multiracial Malaysians, well- managed, and maintained to benefit all Malaysians.

Using private jets and helicopters to fly the poor and elderly or flying aids, medical, economics, education volunteers to them, on the house ? Why not ?

Much appreciation to Sak.
