Najib is made Optimus Prime by Michael's Decepticons

Datuk Seri Najib Razak was crowned today the “Father of Moderation and Transformation” by the World Chinese Economic Forum (WCEF), which said the prime minister’s “fair and just leadership” had benefitted the Chinese community “tremendously”. WCEF chairman Datuk Michael Yeoh said in his speech at the conferment ceremony here today.

This was the major news item of the day. WCEF is a gathering of Chinese hongs and towkays eager to seek business favors from the PM.  How does Michael Yeoh come by his assessment? 

Among others, Yeoh praised Najib’s 1 Malaysia platform, his administration’s decision to increase allocation to Chinese schools and the introduction of tax exemptions for churches and temples, saying the initiatives were proof of the prime minister’s commitment to “fairness and justice”.

Fuyoh! I had to pinch myself. Never have I heard such outpouring of boot-licking averments which Michael sought to prove by stating the material I placed in italics above. 

Let me steal the thunder from Michael’s shameless  sycophantic offerings.

Two weeks ago, I sat down with Dr Richard Cockett, SEA Correspondent for The Economist. Also present was Wan Saiful Wan Jan, head of IDEAS. Richard posted the question to me as to whether Najib will succeed in his transformation ideas.

He will not succeed I said. But let me say some nice things about Najib. Najib is a personable fellow and if you get close enough to him, you will have to be a black-hearted person NOT to like him. But that is as far as I can go. He is a nice and a personable fellow. 

He has his heart at the right place, but as I wrote sometime back, he is a political invertebrate. He doesn’t have the political will and personal strength to push through his programs. I was ready to concede later, that Najib on account of his exterior rhetoric may indeed have a backbone but still, I find difficulty to locate where on his anatomy. 

Take the case of his New Economic Model. Nowadays we hardly hear about it. In the 2011 UMNO General Assembly, Najib did not even mention it. Instead he devoted much of his speech sounding very combative and full of vehemence. What he has done was to actually retrograde to UMNO cavemen politics. You disagree with us, we bash you in the heads with our swing sticks. 

Ask yourself. How will Najib for instance push through his economic agenda? Answer: He will revert to the tested ways of selecting cronies, of giving direct negotiated projects masked by seemingly transparent methods to the chosen few. Those chosen few too will be recommended by the Man who can walk on water. He will continue with the patronage system instead of pushing his transforming ideas through. 

The only transforming sensation that Najib will achieve is perhaps playing with his Transformers toys and watching the film starring Shia LaBeouf. His eyes will probably focus more on Megan Fox. 

In the 2010 UMNO General Assembly for instance, all his big ideas were rejected and thwarted by UMNO delegates , obviously mirroring the general objection to Najib’s adventurist ideas which were his alone and most probably, scripted by expensively paid consultants. His idea of 1 Malaysia with the hazy notions of inclusiveness and outward readiness to “We must pool our collective talents  in the interests of our nation so that together, we will win out. Fulamak!

That to be read as: we must pakat pakat to swipe clean the country’s wealth and make hay while the sun shines. We will carry out the agenda of guatolonglu-lutolonggua win-win policies. 

The delegates at that assembly immediately rejected Najib’s 1 Malaysia by insisting on Malay first policies on everything. So what 1 Malaysia is Najib talking about?

His plans to transform the economy and especially that of the Malay economy through his NEM founded on the equally hazy notions of affirmative policies based of free market economics and affirmative policies based on merits were met with howls from delegates insisting on the continuation of NEP like policies. 

In the end, Najib was left clutching his balls and could only muster his last trump card- to claim that after all he is the son of Tun Razak.  That, no one can dispute. Genetically he is, but culturally, he isn’t. He doesn’t have the leadership qualities of Tun Razak.

How can he push his liberalist economic agenda through a mindset accustomed to patronage? Will the UMNO warlords, who has only known survival through the patronage system of UMNO allow some anointed successor, albeit being the son of TUn Razak dismantle a system that has provided them with succor? That would be suicidal. 

Najib will be sacrificed rather than allow a system that has spawn hordes of tenderpreneurs being replaced by an adventurist Najib Tun Razak with a blasphemous idea. 

In short, Najib faces a brick wall and he has nowhere to go. Either he faces the UMNO firing squad or capitulate. In the 2011 UMNO Assembly, he has done that exactly- retreated shamelessly. That gutless and shameless position was effectively masked by his recalcitrant and combative rhetoric. 

How will he push his transformation programs through a sea of stubborn tenderpreneurs and obstinate rent seekers? 

So in answer to Richard Cockett, Najib can’t transform. He can only dream of becoming Optimus Prime.

Dato,this bodeker Datuk Michael Yeoh is impatient to be a Tan Sri.That is the reason he is kissing and rubbing Najib's backside.Shameless creatures,some Chinese towkays.Will suck batangs if need to,just to get in the good mood of their benefactors.

I agree Najib is a personable person,but as a leader he lacked backbones.His reform ideas were good,but did any of his reforms ever get implemented.If some did,they wouldn't have the oomph as they would be diluted by the various warlords,to make it not pleasable for Najib to get high marks.

It is already two years since Najib took over from Badawi,and he has not even consolidate his hold on Umno.That is the reason that Najib is weak and flipflopping most of the time.He has more enemies in Umno than friends as his grassroots support is around fourty to fourty five percent.

In the recent Umno GA all they could yell and scream about are fear and scare mongering.Nothing concrete that an incumbent government can boast about.It is the first sign of desperation,and a prelude of worst things to come.The outright losing of the coming GE.

That is the reason the GE is being pushed back as far as possible.The Umno/BN is trying to avoid a humilating loss big time by losing small.Small is losing federal power by five to fifteen parlimentary seats.Big time means a landslide victory for PR.Anyways Umno/BN loses federal power.

Different Thoughts 27 January 2012 at 10:37  

First of all, Najib has no plans to change the status quo which he has been part of it for so many years. Surely, he knows that KJ, a person with no "official" position during Pak Lah's time can be so powerful that Mamakthir could not even qualify as a delegate to the UMNO general assembly. Now given the chance to be at the helm, why should he try to rock the boat and put his position at risk. He would rather stash away as much cash as he could so that his future generations will be blessed with all these ill gotten gains.

Many malays have already migrated overseas and it wont be a surprise he and his coterie of robbers would take the same route if the opposition make some shocking gains come the GE13.

Folks like Michael Yeoh are quintessentially lallang. These people are very dangerous to Najib because they will tell him what he wants to hear, not what he needs to hear.

Reminds me of the story of the emperor having no clothes.

Sick & Tired,  27 January 2012 at 11:23  

Eversince Michael Yeoh returned to Malaysia after graduating from Monash University, he has been jacking the backsides of his UMNO and MCA masters. His wealth was gained just by arranging seminars with Australian academics for his UMNO and MCA warlords. By licking their arses, he was chosen to be one of the adviser for the useless Malaysia Human Rights Organisation and gained his Datukship. Now he is arranging to launder the corruption monies by investing in Australia's nursing homes.

As for Najib, he was instructed by Mahathir to intervene in Khazanah offloading its 42.7% stake in for 1.29bn ringgit to DRB-Hicom, by lowering the original selling price of 6.10 RM to only 5.50RM. As we are aware, Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary is one of Mahathir's proxies. So this virulent Mahathir has been gobbling Malaysia's rakyat funds for the past 30 years by abusing his powers. So Najib has definitely left his spine with his grotesque Rosmah.

Dear Sakmongkol

“How can he push his liberalist economic agenda through a mindset accustomed to patronage? Will the UMNO warlords, who have only known survival through the patronage system of UMNO allow some anointed successor, albeit being the son of Tun Razak dismantle a system that has provided them with succor? That would be suicidal.

Najib will be sacrificed rather than allow a system that has spawn hordes of tenderpreneurs being replaced by an adventurist Najib Tun Razak with a blasphemous idea.”

You have very succinctly summarized Najib’s situation. He is snookered. He cannot go forward with his reformist agenda because UMNO won’t let him. For all his good intentions – I do not doubt his intent – but unless he can inflate his balls, he cannot bulldoze those UMNO warlords bred on the honey of cronyism. So many countries around the world have shown us that their leaders get rich while impoverishing their people through blatant corruption. We should not be surprised at all that this is happening right here. If we are to believe the rumour mill, both Najib and the First Lady of Shopping are part of the band of 40 thieves. That is why he couldn’t summon the courage as PM to sack a minister embroiled in the flaming NFC scandal. There is, after all, honour amongst thieves.

As for the dubious and undeserved WCEF lifetime award, best to just chalk it to unashamed balls carrying. It was given in recognition of his “contributions to the transformation of Malaysia” and “immense contributions to the Chinese community”. The total amounts given to Chinese schools and tax exemptions to churches and temples probably are worth just tens of millions. That is really peanuts, just a tiny fraction of what the Lims of Genting or the Yeohs of YTL are worth. Any good government should help schools, any school, and if it is not strictly secular, also help all religious organizations or places of worship, not just those of one religion. Is this piffling gesture worth a lifetime award? They have apparently forgotten that this is the same man who in 1987 at the TPCA stadium in KL, threatened to bathe his kris in Chinese blood. What a turnaround!

As for transformation, what transformation? One cannot take seriously any award given by Lee Kim Yew (WCEF president), one of the most well-known apple polishers around (he was Mahathir’s chief polisher), and Chua Soi Lek who is trying to work himself back into Najib’s list of winnable candidates.

From what you say, UMNO cannot be a democratic party nor are its members intelligent enough to understand good policies.

They need someone like Mamaputra Mamathir to catch them by their balls and say that he is the champion of Malay rights. They will quietly follow him. Only he can do away with those who show their fangs - Musa, Razaleigh, Anwar and last Pak Lah. We can believe that Najib will be his next target.

Only a Mamakputra can do that and there is never going to be another UMNOputra who can sit on the UMNO throne for 22 years!

Najib is just a puppet on a string. How can such a person leads a country? Only in Malaysia!

I wouldn't even hire him as my gardener, jaga or driver. Nice alone just won't do it.

And the Malays and bodekers love nice people, nothing wrong with that except leadership has nothing to do with nice.

Anyway, I was on the road when I heard on my car radio that the award was presented by a certain lee Kim Yew of Cuntry Heights fame. That's tells all, don't it?

Politically PM Jibby is weak as evident in so many instances of flip-flopping decisions. He is a non-dynamic PM and has not formulate any solid and constructive economic policies to push our country forward. I pity him for being surrounded by all the useless advisers and UMNO warlords who only have personal interest in mind.The bunch of Chinaman in this event are just 'balls-lickers' hope to get more crumbs falling off the UMNO's dining tables.They are a shameless and disgracefully lot to the Chinese community. They will even sell theirs mothers, wives and daughters in their greed for money.

"The Bumiputra affirmative action policy has destroyed one generation of Malays....they dont know how to be competitive. The sad thing is that they dont realized that the longer they keep at it, in the ultimate long run....they are "killing" themselves. The day of reckoning will come and history will be re-written on how Malaysian fore-fathers failed the nation. The intent may be good, but the execution and policy has been a disaster."

Here's to my ABU pals especially dear Bruno

I was at a bank today. Sitting beside me was a father and his 10-year kid. Enter a guy holding a helmet with the ABU logo.

Kid: "Papa, nama dia macam Papa. Tapi takde Bakar."
Dad: "Itu slogan pilihanraya. A -Asalkan B Bukan U UMNO.
Kid: "Oh, pilihanraya Dato Najib, ya Pa? Parti BN dia."
Dad: Ya, Adik.
Kid: Tapi Pa, Adik tengok kat TV, Dato' Najib cakap UMNO, MIC, MCA parti kerajaan BN. Apasal dia eja U UMNO aje.
"Apasal tak eja BN aje atau MIC dan MCA sama, Pa. Tak reti eja ke orang ni?
Dad: "Isy, banyak soal pulak. Malu kat abang ni," turning to me, smiling.
By then I was already in stitches.
I reply: "Pandai Adik. Abangpun pikir sama. Deorang bodoh. Tak pandai eja.

Ooh, the innocence of a precocious child.

Let me shake up those ball-carrying toadies and plastic lizards.

Why didn't they crown him on the parking lot of the Tung Shin Hospital during Bersih 2.0?

That would have lent more dramatic meaning to moderation and transformation.

On second thought, coming from a douchebag like Yeoh, the value of the title has already dropped to zero.

Yeoh is from Asli c/o Mahathir. The forum patron is Lee Kim Yew c/o Mahathir, and the co-organizers are Chua and Fong c/o Barisan. It's a family reunion of cronies. Right hand to left hand, and back.

This is the same method as used all the way back to those years when Mahathir was running the joint. They would praise one another because all were in the know in the first place that none has any credentials or achievement to speak of.

If Hasbro Inc, makers of Transformers, want some ideas on how to animate their products to carry small round and delicate objects, they should interview Yeoh who by experience can surely provide all the right answers. I know him well enough to say he's a neutron; all mass, no charge.

So where's the transformation, you wonder without much effort.

It is execrable that after half a century, we still have such jokers around thinking the rakyat won't see through their spineless games of gutter-level apple-polishing, furthermore played to hide their intellectual and ethical paucities which drain the reputation of this nation and test the patience of its citizens.

Furthermore, giving the reason for the award as commitment to fairness and justice only confesses to the lack of those attributes before the award was made. That's since Umno Baru started.

Maybe that's why Mahathir didn't get such a title before. Father of what would he have been? Please, expletives are not our way of life but in this case some exceptions can be made.

Therefore, are the chinese today in this country to go down on their knees and light joss-sticks in thanks for finally getting what should have been otherwise covered in the normal course of an enlightened administration by the federal constitution of the country for naturalized citizens of this nation?

One would add to Sak's analysis of Najib as not just a political invertebrate but also someone with more skeletons in his cupboard than you would find in anatomy school.

And that is why the man who wades on water is still the puppet master in the background whose very presence confers by some warped backward logic an unspoken license for a 1Malay racism in Umno to divert attention from answering yet another of the rakyats' questions to him.

Namely, if he thinks our Malays are going to riot owing to income disparity, why hasn't his family members with their nepotised millions given out some to reduce by now the bigger income disparity between his Umnoputra's and other Malays?

Perkasa, pekida, papagomo and all the other unprintable p's can help him with the answer but don't bother recruiting consultants on taxpayers' account.

How the hell did this country countenance these jokers for so long?

Wah, yet another award given to the PM for his flip-floping nature and spineless attitude. Father of Moderation and Transformation? Well if it means that Najib is "BEST" at being "moderate" i.e of limited or average quality (in other word mediocre) AND always THE best at altering his position, decision and mind (spineless and jelly like in substance) whenever he met the slightest resistance, then YES, he is the father of all that.

On another note, I'm quite happy to see some despairing fella finally found someone who shares his mentality, logic and of course intelligence, never mind the fact that "someone" is a 10 year old kid. Now, I wonder if that fella can understand the word "immature grown-up with the intelligence of a primary schoolboy". I bet that kid would understand it better that him.

To the village man, do you know that the word "glorious" is often used by "FANATICAL" North Korean whenever they address their "Great Leader"? Well, you have shown yourself as having the same mentality and of course "the closet mind with many years under a coconut shell" intelligence as the backward North Korean, in your over the top adulation and fanatical worship of your "Dear Leader". Geez, when did the government issue the AP for importing North Korean made "super ludicrous and self-aggrandizing" brain washing machine? Guess the machine has "spin and whitewash" function too, no doubt!

Michael Yeoh,  28 January 2012 at 16:47  

I would like to thank Sangmongkol and all who posted comments on his blog article on me. I accept all the criticisms in good faith.
I know when I spoke about PM Najib's contributions to the Chinese many would disagree with me and will be unhappy. This is because the Chinese community has for a long time felt aggrieved and marginalised over the years. I understand the sentiments and the feelings of alienation and despair which has built up over the years resulting in the 308 results. Nevertheless it is still a fact that in 2 years PM Najib has done more to address Chinese concerns than his predecessors have done in over 30 years.
The allocation of Rm200mil a year to Chinese schools is a substantial increase from previous years. The allocation for Chinese New Villages has also been substantially increased.The tax exemption for temples and churches have been what the community has asked for for a long time.Under PM Najib we now have 3 Chinese as Secretaries Generals of Ministries and many other Indians and Eurasians and not just a token 1 Chinese and 1 Indian as was in the past.More than 30 subsectors of the services sector have been liberalised allowing 100% equity ownership without the need for any Bumiputra partners.The same has been the case also for the Manufacturing sector for export industries when Malaysian Chinese can now own 100% equity.
True to many these may not be enough but they are a good start and in my considered view the PM should be supported for taking the right decisions though not all will agree with me. As Confucious said a journey of a thousand miles begin with one small step.
We know that there is still a long way to go to meet the expectations of all but a beginning has been made. There are many areas which I do believe a lot more still needs to be done such as improvements in human rights and eradication of corruption. We were among the first to call for the repeal of the ISA and UCCA more than 10 years ago. We continue to call on the PM and the Govt to ratify  UN Conventions on Human Rights.We have called for public declaration of Ministers assets and these remain our stance.
 The World Chinese Economic Forum which conferred this Award on PM Najib has also honoured Penang CM and DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng three times in 2009,2010 and 2011 by having him deliver special addresses to the Forum. Penang CM Lim Guan Eng continued to participate in the World Chinese Economic Forum as he sees the value of this Forum.

Michael Yeoh,  28 January 2012 at 16:54  

(continued) As an independent non profit and non partisan Think Tank we have given more space and opportunities for Pakatan Leaders to participate in and speak at our Programmes so they can reach out to more people and share their vision.In fact we were honoured to not only having Lim Guan Eng grace our many conferences but also DAP MPs like Tony Pua and Theresa Kok. From PKR we had Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, Elizabeth Wong and Nik Nadzmi speaking to us .We gave our platforms to these Opposition Leaders as we believe in and uphold democracy in the Country. We had also helped Lim Guan Eng draw investments to Penang by bringing him to speak at our Forums in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shenzen so he could address potential investors. There is no other Think Tank in Malaysia that has given so many opportunities to the Pakatan Rakyat leaders as we uphold our non partisan and independent agenda for the betterment of the country.
 In fact on 18th Feb we are once again hosting Lim Guan Eng as well as DAP deputy national chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw and DAP women leader Chong Eng at another political conference at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel from 9am to 6pm. All are invited to attend.
 At the same time we shall continue to engage with PM Najib and other BN Leaders to communicate to them the frustrations and feelings of the people and to provide a dialogue between the Govt leaders,the private sector and civil society.
 I hope we can engage in open candid but civilized dialogue and not emotional rantings.This is the way forward for us bridge the political divide and narrow differences.
 Lastly I have not been involved in business as I work in a non profit organisation. I have never sought nor will ever seek any government contracts or tenders.

Basically, Najib is a two-faced person. When he talk about something, he will do the opposite. He talk differently to different audiences like a "lallang" - trying to get support. The not so nice word for such a person is "hypocrite". From this, one can see that he has NO ideals to make Malaysia or its people better but only to survive and cling to power (money money). Does he care for Malaysia and its people? I doubt it.

The trouble with these Chinese apologists is that you just need to throw them scraps and they'll lap those up like dogs. They don't see the wood for the trees, the larger picture. They don't see that Najib's 1Malaysia is a scam, like many of his other scams. This speaks very negatively of the Chinese situation, which is best reflected in the MCA and its retrogressive stance. I would like to think that many Chinese do not subscribe to that MCA asininity any more. I would like to think that the Chinese, by and large, have woken up. I hope I'm right.

What will make this blog better is a base malaysia version running
concurrently so that it will attract 70 per cent more readership
and maybe put a mandarin version as well to cover more readership.

Walla, Sir , since this is your regular site , it would be good if you could
make arrangement with sak to have the blog produced in multi-lingual mode. This could be
another philatrophy project from you eh!
So what is wealth if you cannot use and flaunt it!


Politics is like sales. You are selling ideas here . Everyone may have
some vague notion what they want in a government but if could provide
a clarity of thought to all and sundry , PR have a good chance to
run the federal gomen.

Sit on this proposal . And the results would be rewarding. Remember Ted Forstmann

To the one posting here as Michael Yeoh,

How does merely increasing allocations to schools and new villages make one a 'Father of Moderation and Transformation'? It has long been the government's responsibility to provide for this establishments, how does increasing it help transform them? Would this mean that students from these schools would no longer be discriminated for University entrance? Would new villages now have better facilities without the monies being siphoned away by crony contractors? Please enlighten us.

How does giving full ownership of minor services and manufacturing that are unpopular to be of any significance? By giving full ownership to these, it does not guarantee that if you are not a BN member that licenses to operate these services or industries will be approved. Please don't take us as fools.

One swallow does not a winter make. He definitely does not deserve any accolades until he tackles the major issues.

How does giving token participation to opposition leaders any form of unbias? If your organization is truly unbiased then please award leaders from the opposition with splendid titles for their contributions as well.

You are a member of an advisory panel in the Prime Minister's Department. Please resign from this panel to prove that you are truly nonpartisan. You can then truly engage the government as a truly independent activist without receiving any payroll from them.

You can fool some of the people some of the time but not everyone.

To the one posting here as Michael Yeoh,

Very sad to hear the positive remarks given to the racist BN government by a famous Chinese who only see the improvement on a little hang-out after the 50 years of discrimination toward the minority race in Malaysia.

The question should be answered by Micheal Yeoh including the MCA:-

1) Are you supporting the racist policy adopted by BN that will make the Malaysia bankrupt very soon? (450 billions and keep increasing)

2) Are you able to foresee any improvement can be done to the nation in near future under BN or just trying to syiok sendiri with the little “hang-out” given to minority race during the election? If no, why still support a sinking boat of BN?

3) Why is the problem to give a new mandate to a new party(PR) to prove themselve?

4) What is the percentage allocation (Budget) to the Chinese school for the past 10 years compared to the Malay school?

5) Any improvement based on the lists below? Or just sastify with the little hang-out at the country’s expense?

List of racial discriminations in Malaysia, practiced by government as wellas government agencies. This list is an open secret
This list is not in the order of importance, that means the first one on the list is not the most important and the last one on the list does not mean least important.

This list is a common knowledge to a lot of Malaysians, especially those non-malays (Chinese, Ibans, Kadazans, Orang Asli, Indians, etc) who were being racially discriminated.

Figures in this list are estimates only and please take it as a guide only. Government of Malaysia has the most correct figures. Is government of Malaysia too ashamed to publish their racist acts by publishing racial statistics?

This list cover a period of about 48 years since independence (1957).

(monthly) cannot get
school-text-book-loan, a malay parent with RM2000
salary is eligible

(24) 10 all public universities vice chancellors are

(25) 5% - the government universities lecturers of
non-malay origins

The TAG machines at the causeway and second link are ready and blinking. Does it mean that they are going to collect 20 or 30 RM per car that passes through the immigration counters? Is it fair to genuine Malaysian owners of Singapore plate cars working in Singapore? Are the Singaporeans going to come into Malaysia in droves again? Who will suffer more? The Chinese who are business people or the malays who are petty traders or the economy as a whole?
Why the need to collect so much money. Will they be used to boost the sagging economy or to buy diamond rings for VIP's?

If not for the melayus pariahs like pundek samy, pundek sok'lingam

How long did pundek-samy became minister ?

Ans.over 30 years [ 8 terms voted by melayus]

And now the pariah chingkies and kelings are still getting mister

To whom do these pariah owe their great positions?

So do not fuck around here .

if you want to rant, go see a proper ranting in Marina's Rantings

If you just want to be a trainee sundal writer. go jump into the klang river
Think of it as the hwang ho or the ganges if you are a chingkie/keling respectively.

Please note that many Charity Organisations that do not belong to BUFU are goven tax exemptions. But the organisation itself is not given tax exemption directly.All money donated had to be decalred through the Ministry of Social welfare which deducts a some 3or4% as processing fees for holding in trust the exemption status for that organisation that does not belonf to BUFU.

i've fantastic Melayu relatives by their marriage, let me tell you how some mindful Malays are sickened by your kind of language, racism, bigotry that they want to brain drain and join fellow Malaysians abroad. Now worries as they are highly qualifiled and not brought up to be prejudists, extremists and vulgar. The fcuking rings a bell to middle finger flashing by a few umno leaders.

How some Malays feel and rant are in accordance to Quran as it preaches comapssion, justice and fairness ? So don't bluff here ! Heard of non syariah lwayers not allowed to sit on the bench ? Perhaps the day they are allowed to do so, there will be true justice for the Muslims !!!

This is a democratic contry, to come up with such data by Ahmad should be encouraged for transparency and accountability !

Go BLAST OFF with your vulgarity - bahasa menunjuk bangsa, sadly, many Malay teens have caught up, way ahead with your fcuking language, taking " ice " doing side businesses on the net in the broad day light, some jiving in exclusive clubs, seen it all.

The result of you reap what you sow : your fcuking, cursing, bullying mutiracial Malaysians.
