-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will always ask anyone who is in a political discussion, local politics ie, whether he or she is a regular voter.

Registered is not good enough. Voting regularly makes one qualified to engage in such discussions.

Hold your horses before you start your criticism. My point is if your are not a regular voter what's the point to discuss?

Every one knows the oft used phrase 'walk the talk'. It's even worse if you are not registered or never voted. Then you are not only not walking but be talking..cock.

That matter cleared lets get to the topic at hand.

What is the frustrated lady Datuk of BERSIH, ex-Bar Boss demanding? In a nutshell appended, no link provided but if you find it see how preposterous and typically Chubby Checker, the reasons therein for the demands.

1) Automatic voter registration
2) Reforms to postal voting
3) Use of indelible ink
4) Minimum campaign period of 21 days
5) Free and fair access to media
6) Strengthen public institutions
7) Stop corruption
8) Stop dirty politics

Datuk Rocky has this to say about the 2007 BERSIH demands.

Now, anybody who has voted should know how the voting process works.

Step 1
Your must be 21 years old on polling day.

Step 2
Check if you are on the electoral roll. Every political party has this roll

Step 3
Check for your polling station.

Step 4
At the polling station you will be guided by the SPR officers to the voting room.

Step 5
Upon entering the voting room the another SPR officer will call out your MyKad number and in every voting room there will be a representative of the contesting candidate to strike out your name. Which signifies or certifies that you have voted.

These 5 steps are good enough to sully some of the outlandish BERSIH demands, which also serves to besmirch the country, devilishly disguised for clean and fair elections. Yes, yes you opposition sycophants are already frothing at the mouth ready to pounce. For you rabid running dogs, I am addressing the BERSIH demands, alright? Not the entire election process, ok?

This is what BRRRSIH is demanding for a clean and fair elections.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hoodwink Demand 1) Automatic voter registration.

How does automatic voter registration make the elections cleaner or fairer? Still thinking? Me too.

If you with a right to vote, don't even bother to register yourself, and there are hundreds and thousands of yous, will automatic registration guarantee you will vote?

That's the rationale isn't it?

The point is if you care and want to make a difference you will register yourself. Unless of course automatic voter registration with compulsory voting.

BRRRSIH is silent on this. See the start of this post. Everybody can and will be talking cock, being automatically registered what.

Ok, lah. Didn't want to elaborate further but have to.

Automatic registration would then mean upon reaching 21 years of age, all you need is your Mykad and voila no need to check, just go and vote.

Where can you vote? Anywhere you like? What is the electoral roll then?

Ah! National Registration Department. Mr and Mrs Hannah Yeoh come to mind. No relevance but they come to mind.

Make a big ruckus in the event of dispute.

How do you address multiple voting or phantom votes?

You could give the software contract to IT Wizard Tony the Tompel Pua to develop a full proof Electronic Electoral Roll.

Datuk Rais will have his work cut out if the hackers say,

"IF YOU DON'T LISTEN TO THE FRUS EX-BAR CHIEF AMBIGA, WE WILL, WE WILL HACK YOU" Boom Boom Cheng, Boom Boom Cheng.

on polling day. How Tony? Up to it?

Produce MyKad and vote. Just like that or use card reader or something to that effect to prevent multiple voting?

Remember the MyKad clanger in the fuel subsidy suggestion?

Does it really solve the age old bogeyman phantom voters issue, which curiously are raised most often than not, by the Ex-Bar Chief's brethren, the Opposition?

No, but now not only can they blame SPR, they can blame NRD as well.

See, somehow Mr and Mrs Hannah Yeoh keeps coming to mind.

Will it mean, before where number of constituents 100,000, you can call on rabid supporters to get 200,000 votes?

Now, even in the US there is no such thing as automatic voter registration and there is no particular official document for identification.
"Eligible voters must take the initiative to register by signing a legal affidavit swearing that she or he is a citizen and has reached the required age."
"Since passage of the federal Help America Vote Act, first-time voters in federal elections must show proof of residency (photo ID, current utility bill, bank statement or government document) either at the time of registration or when they show up at the polls for the first time."

Ambiga is guilty of failing to disclose this fact that weakens her demand.

It's easy to demand. People complain about empty promises. This is an empty demand.

Hoodwink Demand 2) Reforms to postal voting.

Although the voting steps above differ from postal voting, I have not come across any dispute brought before an Election Judge challenging a result on a postal vote dispute.

Postal votes make a big difference where an election contest is tight and slim results is expected.

As a matter of fact, even our PM Datuk Seri Najib won by a very slim margin in 1999 and I don't recall the losing candidate challenging the result on account of the postal votes, said to be crucial for the win.

Or when "Tan Sri Lee (San Choon) chose the Seremban constituency, a DAP stronghold under Dr. Chen Man Hin. But (Unker) Lim chickened out, leaving Dr Chen to defend his constituency. Tan Sri Lee won by a majority of 845 votes."

At any rate even in the free and clean democracies of the UK and US postal voting, with these allegations of rigging, is not without flaw.

This document touches extensively upon postal voting and fraud in the UK.

Postal voting has it's flaws and is not endemic only in Malaysia as the Frus Lady tries to suggest.

Which is not to say that postal voting flaws be overlooked but that postal votes has never been a major issue in Malaysian elections and which Ambiga conveniently does not oblige to mention or provide any evidence of abuse or fraud.

Hoodwink Demand 3) Use of indelible ink.

This is the most laughable demand. See Step 5 above. There is no way for anyone to vote twice or three times. All political parties have their election agents in the voting room to ensure that the person registered to vote casts his vote only once by striking his name off their list.

Also indelible ink is not so full proof after all.
"Larrazabal said the Comelec plans to put more nitrate solution due to complaints in the past elections that the indelible ink could be easily removed and allow erring voters to vote several times."

The SPR decided against its use for fear that the unscrupulous found a way round this mechanism and open to abuse.

No need reminding the suggestion to use and not use indelible ink came during whose administration, who else but the flip-flopping Pak Lah.

The use of indelible ink as demanded by a devious Ambiga is actually an intention to give a perception and paint Malaysia as being democratically backward.

I find this extremely insulting.

Hoodwink Demand 4) Minimum campaign period of 21 days.

This is the most devious and deadly demand which exposes the devil in Ambiga and her opposition inclinations.

While I do not want to be accused of using the racial card or threats of May 13, the long campaign period was the contributing factor leading to the outburst of clashes in that dark day in Malaysia.

"In not so many words, Tunku, in his book May 13 Before and After, acknowledged that his tolerance for criticism and his decision to allow a campaign period lasting almost three months had been abused and contributed towards the outbreak of the riots."

Why 21 days? Why not 30 days or 45day? Just pluck from the sky, I suppose.

Read prominent blogger Jebat Must Die for a comprehensive, fact laden essay of that fateful day "May 13th 1969 – The Correct View" in 4 parts.

This demand plays nicely into hands of agitators and agent provocateurs which this rally can give opportunity to, if it has not already.

Hoodwink Demand 5) Free and fair access to media

Kedah (State Govt) lifts ban but not for RTM, TV3

Penang (State Govt) slaps ban on Utusan

Get it? Got it? Good.

Madam Ambiga Ga, two wrongs don't make one right. This is what we will expect when the Opposition takes over Putrajaya.

Intolerance. Worse than what you rationalise and quoted below.

I don't see any Barisan Nasional programmes reported in the Selangor Times.

Digressing, does it have a Publishing Permit? I don't see any KDN number printed.

The Sun Daily should sue this brazen woman. Either that or you are not mainstream.

"It is no secret that the Malaysian mainstream media fails to practice proportionate, fair and objective reporting for political parties of all divide."


Madam, you see your friends do not practise what you preach.

Hoodwink Demand 6) Independence of institutions.

The Ex-Bar Chief, confirms another insidious intention of this perverse rally, that is to tarnish and bad mouth the country to the eyes of the outside world, links every institution she mentions but does not have any connection to elections being fair or clean.
"During the launch of the rally on 19 June 2011, BERSIH 2.0 announced that there will be rallies held in UK and Taiwan in solidarity with Perhimpunan BERSIH 2.0"

In a way she is right. If they were independent, she would be chief behind many bars by now.

The Police, AG and the Judiciary should throw the book directly to her face.

That she is still out there agitating, contradicts what she implies and demands.

Appropriately for this dum dum lady because she thinks we're dummies, I dedicate this link, about Independence of the Judiciary, "over the land of the free and the home of the brave."

Hoodwink Demand 7) Stop corruption

I have mentioned the Lady Ambiga Ga intention to tarnish the country and the following rationale for the demand is clear evidence of this intent.

She tells the whole world that we are a corrupt society.
"Corruption is a disease that has infected every aspect of Malaysian life."
"Current efforts to eradicate corruption are mere tokens to appease public grouses. We demand that serious action is taken against ALL allegations of corruption, including vote buying".

Why not title the demand "Stop vote buying"?

Hoodwink Demand 8) Stop dirty politics

If anybody comes and tell me politics is clean, that person is either lying thru his teeth or bloody naive.

It's a fact, politics is dirty. Like it or not.

But I would like to know what gutter politics Ga Ga is talking about.

"Malaysians are tired of dirty politics that has been the main feature of the Malaysian political arena. We demand for all political parties and politicians to put an end to gutter politics. As citizens and voters, we are not interested in gutter politics; we are interested in policies that affect the nation."

And what has the above rationale got to do with free and fair elections?

The press statement on the BRRSIH site for the rally launch was June 19th and the sex tape alleging Datuk Seri Anwar as the person, surfaced end March.

Is this the gutter politics that Ambiga Ga is talking about?

If there is evidence against a politician screwing somebody's wife, is that gutter politics for exposing him?

We must be gentlemen. Cannot. That is gutter politics. Eeee Dirty. Yeah right.

Take that person down. More so if he is standing in an election.

Is it gutter politics just because it is unsavoury. That's free elections. Free to speak as long as it's the truth.

It is unfair if you are at the end of the dirty politics no matter that it's the truth.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Ex-Bar Chief Ambiga Rip Van Hoodwinkle, go back and sleep.

Nothing has changed.

It is not that you want change for the good.

You want change for the good of your brethren.

We can see what you are, where you're coming from and where you're leading to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eminent members of the Steering Committee, many thanks to your good selves for this wonderful Smear Malaysia campaign.

You must be very proud of yourselves.

With good citizens like you, who needs enemies.

BERSIH, JANGAN KITA MAKAN PASIR

FOR ALL YOU GULLIBLE TRAVELLERS SUPPORTING THIS PERVERTED RALLY.

JUST PAUSE TO THINK.

IF THERE WAS NO CLEAN AND FAIR ELECTIONS, THERE WILL BE NO OPPOSITION!

WHY BOTHER TO STAND IN ANY UNCLEAN AND UNFAIR ELECTION?

BETTER BOYCOTT ANY ELECTION.

BUT THEN NO OPPOSITION.

PKR STOOD IN 48 CONSTITUENCIES IN THE RECENTLY HELD SARAWAK STATE ELECTION.

STATE ELECTION DEPOSIT RM5,000.00 AND PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION RM15,000.00

WHY WASTE TIME, EFFORT AND MONEY IF THERE IS NO CHANCE TO WIN?

-------------------------------------------------------------

These Opposition Loyarburoks never fail to amaze me.

There is no independence in the Judiciary. Right.

Bar Council tolong tutup kedai.

All lawyers better change profession.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The Police is inefficient and biased. Right.

Don't bother to make police reports.

PDRM has more important things to do.

Polis Sapu BERSIH

Title sums up my sentiments.

These MFers better be prepared cos they deserve the full force of the law.

Who is this kepala Datuk engkau Ambiga? Bloody 'hak kwai'.

Stupid fucking around or not enough frustrated stooge lawyer. Sue me fucking lawyer. I am talking about you fucking clowning with peoples lives. You wanna take it any other way round that's your fucking problem.

You should be taught this or this.

"Intimidation means – to make people fear which is also a violent end. All demonstrations are disruptive and just because they happen in democracies does not make them democratic or right or civilized or the most mature way to behave. Demonstrators violate other people’s space, they violate other people’s businesses. We are all frustrated but we should seek more constructive outlets for our frustrations and dissatisfaction. We are supposed to be educated people not uneducated peasants."

Another face that makes me wanna puke.















I have very strong views on the matter. What prompted me to post was because one of my staff, a very gentle lady, made a suggestion. That the management make that Saturday July 9, which is a working day for us, be switched with the next Saturday, a non working day.

BERSIH? KOTOR!

Sorry guys not politics. Roti and mentega issue, I think. You see, my household faced the full brunt of the water cut KL wide the last two days.

This came to mind, we can't live without water. But which is worse, no water?

Mr and Mrs Hannah Yeoh

After reading and experiencing so many things negative, how Mr and Mrs Hannah Yeoh was denied their rights in the registering process of their offspring, broke my already bad proverbial camel back.

I decided I had had enough of Malaysia. I wanted to be, American citizen.

I looked for eligibility and well, ok.

Knowing that the US has no official ID Card, I proceeded to gather what constituted an ID and this is the procedure and simple form from the California (Liberal what. My kinda place.) DMV (watch a lot of dick shows on telly) for my ID.

You see "due to its commonality, the de facto (I hate that de fcto word though) official identification card for adults in all states is the driver's license".

Hmm. So far so good. No race issues.

Then I wondered whether anybody would have a problem like the Yeohs, Mr and Mrs of course. I managed to get this birth registration form and race disclosure is only for office use. Still, the registering officer will ask for the parents' race.

See! They don't ask for the newborn's race. Wait a minute. If Mr and Mrs Yeoh had a kid in the US, will their kid's race be American. Must be I guess.

Me the couch potato and watching those movies always seem to hear dicks say "check social security" and its an ID Card too!. Wow this is great. If you plan on paying your taxes and getting a credit card ie.

Over there "in the absence of a national identity card, the Social Security number has become the de facto national identifier for tax and credit purposes". Whoopee! No CTOS!

Right, here's the social secuity application form. Alamak, got race issue.

Phew, voluntary lah. Oi, dengar tak? V-O-L-U-N-T-A-R-Y.

But why even though "the information you furnish on this form is voluntary. However, failure to provide the requested information may prevent us from issuing you a Social Security number and card."?

Hairan betul. Cannot be, right? This is US of A. So, must be ok. No need to tell race.

Better not take chance. I will put race, American. Better make sure got such thing.

Reading this I blur already. What the hell?

"The minimum categories for race are now: American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African American; Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander; and White. Instead of allowing a multiracial category as was originally suggested in public and congressional hearings, the OMB adopted the Interagency Committee's recommendation to allow respondents to select one or more races when they self-identify."

If Mr and Mrs Yeoh, cannot put their daughter's race Malaysian? Got only Asian. So, must use Asian as race? Cannot be Black, right? And got no Yellow. Definitely not White. Aiyah dunno lah.

Must find way out for Mr and Mrs Yeoh.

Aaah. Here got, see.

"The U.S. 2003 revision of the standards for vital certificates recommends the following race and ethnicity categories, which are in principle the same as those for the 2000 decennial census, with minor wording changes. Both the 2003 vital certificate standards and the 2000 decennial census questionnaires incorporated the 1997 revision of the OMB race and ethnicity category definitions, albeit the below go well beyond the OMB minimum requirements.

1. Hispanic Origin
No, not Spanish/Hispanic/Latino
Yes, Mexican, Mexican American, Chicano
Yes, Puerto Rican
Yes, Cuban
Yes, other Spanish/Hispanic/Latino (with space to write in group)

2. Race
White
Black or African American
American Indian or Alaska Native (with space to write in principal tribe)
Asian Indian
Chinese
Filipino
Japanese
Korean
Vietnamese
Other Asian (with space to write in race)
Native Hawaiian
Guamanian or Chamorro
Samoan
Other Pacific Islander (write in race)
Other (write in race)"

Disappointed there also got race issue.

Never mind. Mr and Mrs Yeoh can write in space provided in other Asian. My case, something like DLL. I hope they don't ask Mr and Mrs why not Asian Indian or Chinese. Then argue again.

By the way I wonder what this meaning

"..recommends the following race and ethnicity categories"

Race or ethnicity? Blur blur.

Now ready to apply for citizenship.

Found the form. Waaaah! So many things to fill ah?

How to answer some of these questions? Must be honest lo. If not penalty of perjury, need Loyarburok.

How to swear? I don't believe in God?

What fucking cheek ask whether I am a part of terrorist organisation. Shit.

Sigh. Mah Fun. Forget it. But that citizenship application form,

"15. Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested?"

ROFLMAO.

Good Morning Malaaaaysia

Put on the headphones and the first two songs I couldn't help but post. It's about Malaysia.

As time goes on

Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that you're near
Promise your love
That I've waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

Never Give Up On A Good Thing



Never give up on a good thing
Remember what makes you happy [Whoa, whoa]
Never give up on a good thing
If love is what you got, you've got a lot

Money's tight, he's workin' every night
It ain't easy to keep the flame alive
And when he finally comes home to ya
He's just too tired to do the things you want to

You can't help but wonder to yourself
How would it be with someone else
Just keep in mind, every storm ends in time
Love is forever, stay together

[Stay together] When you got something real
[Love forever] That you may never feel again

Never give up on a good thing
Remember what makes you happy [Whoa, whoa]
Never give up on a good thing
If love is what you got, you've got a lot

Now you're the man, you've got to understand
She don't mean to make a scene
Like you, she feels all the weight you're under
And when she breaks, is it any wonder

I know sometimes it crosses your mind
To get on out and stay hard to find
Before you try, you'd better look in her eyes
Love is forever, stay together

[Stay together] You've got something real
[Love forever] That you may never feel again
[You've got a lot]

[Stay together]
[Love forever]
You've got something real
That you may never feel again

Never give up on a good thing
Remember what makes you happy [Oh, oh]
Never give up on a good thing
If love is what you got, you've got a lot

Don't give up your good thing
Don't give it, oh, don't, oh, oh
Don't give up your good thing
Please don't, oh, don't
Don't live it up, don't give it up

Never give up on a good thing
Remember what makes you happy [Oh, oh]
Never give up on a good thing
If love is what you got, you've got a lot

Never give up on a good thing [Oh, he's all you need]
Remember what makes you happy [Whoa, whoa]
Never give up on a good thing
If love is what you got, you've got a lot

Never give up on a good thing [Oh, he's all you need]
Remember what makes you happy [Whoa, oh]
Never give up on a good thing

Shaun Tan-Brain in the Drain, Post Postscript

Snuze, commented in Brain in the Drain,

"I think it takes more guts to stand your ground when you don't have a plan B than to have pseudo-courage when you know when goings get tough, you have an option to get going.

We don't need "superior intellectuals" of this kind in Malaysia. If they think they're too good for us dumb plebs, they can take a hike to more "welcoming" climes."


Dear Snuze,

You're right. But there had always been Plan B in Malaysia.

The egotist in him, like the scorpion, cannot help bragging, his boleh mampu Plan B.

Oi, 3 months (within 2 years) whole family in "the land of sheep" but "Within a few weeks I was bored".

For most of us weekend + maybe 2 days kat Port Dickson pun berat.

And this racist implied/expressed, typical of a opposition indoctrinated mentality, ambil kesempatan.."He remembered the Indonesian racial riots of 1998, and he kept the pulse of rising extremism in Malaysia. If violence ever broke out in Malaysia my family would have a back door, a way out."

What's with the "if violence ever broke out in Malaysia" bit?

By the way, riots in Indonesia kepada siapa?

"Shops owned by Chinese Indonesians were looted,.."

"Properties owned by Chinese Indonesians were the most common targets."

"On 14 May, 1998, in Sidtopo, Surabaya, rioters targeted Chinese-owned stores and homes, burning their contents."

And for this SyaiTan otak longkang tongkang terbalik,

"Chinese Indonesians were angered and felt betrayed by this action, and many fled the area for Malaysia, Singapore, or other locations in Indonesia."

Peruse his racist/bigoted essay closely and you'll pick up more of his idiosyncrasies.

If this SyaiTan feels he is being discriminated, orang putih pun ada rasa.

"For example, 46% of the undergraduates at the University of California’s flagship university, UC-Berkeley, are Asians despite the fact that Asians are only 12% of the state population. These consequences are hardly trivial for Whites."

The poll in that article noted
"However, whites believe that anti-white racism has increased and is now a bigger problem than anti-black racism."
"These data are the first to demonstrate that not only do whites think more progress has been made toward equality than do blacks, but whites also now believe that this progress is linked to a new inequality -- at their expense," note Norton and Sommers. Whites see racial equality as a zero sum game, in which gains for one group mean losses for the other."


Tin kosong will be well advised to note
"And in some parts of the country, it is clear that what defines disadvantage won't be black or brown, it will be white. And we will have to take positive action to help some white groups, what we might call an underclass."

Juxtaposed to Malaysia, it is not unreasonable, to say that issues that concerns a dominant race, is not endemic only in our country.

If detractors start criticising or labelling any of the above articles, rest assured it will be the politicians, political pimps prostituting issues.

Especially race issues.

Seeking cheap publicity DAP acolyte, Hannah Yeoh, and her queen control husband would even go to the extent to use their innocent newly born 7 days old baby, for political mileage. Way to go, Mr Hannah Yeoh.

Politicians do that, its the same even in UK.

"Earlier this month a government report acknowledged that families on the country's poorest estates believe they have been 'betrayed' and 'abandoned' by politicians who favour newly-arrived immigrants."

Will UMNO want to be accused as such?

Concur Snuze, this SyaiTan will find himself quite comfortable in the welcoming climes of UK.

Thanks for the comment

Shaun Tan-Brain in the Drain, Postscript

Shaun of his dignity by me for the manner in which the bigot denigrates and humiliates his own country, a day later this report, justifies my vituperation.

Unlike Timothy Lim, Shaun Tan takes the tin kosong short cut route to popularity, Malaysia bashing abroad, to get to the finals.

I read the winner's and the finalist from the Philippines' work, which are more accomplished, and nowhere do they besmirch or are derisive of their own country.

I do not believe for one moment, his no substance Ass"A", made the finals on merit.

It was more the "Shock and Awe". The same strategy used by his fellow alumni, George Dub(le)ya Bush.

"George W. Bush, in fact, may be the most spectacular affirmative-action success story of all time. Until 1994, when he was 48 years old and got elected Governor of Texas, his life was almost empty of accomplishments."

Master Shaun, welcome to the real world or stay the fuck where you are.

Cos I fear your pro(opposhition)creation will create issues like the Hannah Yeohs of this world.

Shaun Tan-Brain in the Drain

I was advertently brought to the attention of a YALE student, whom we should all be proud for having authored an essay that made the finals of World Bank International Essay Competition, complete with damning his country, his Prime Minister and most importantly for his inherent, abject racism and bigotry.


Not to mention some US of A ball carrying. Have to man, ivy league what.

We are grateful to the Steering Committee of the competition for their ignorance and blindness, not of the impartiality kind, for accepting this flagrant racist prelude to the essay, The Migrant’s Eye,


























Pic of the bigot from YJIA. Even his face makes me wanna puke. Yeah I'm getting personal.


Exodus

Smart Indians go to med school,

Smart Chinese go to investment banks,

Smart Malaysians go to Singapore.

- Anonymous (prologue, Migrant's Eye)


As far as Master Shaun Tan is concerned Malays are inconsequential, not worthy of mention. Of course he implies something.

Here is an up and coming future opposition leader with the same vein and traits of fellow Singapore glorifying sycophants.

Yes, read Shaun Tan's losing ass'A' and you can easily see why this 24 year old is leadership material and will sit pretty darn well with the DAP.


Compare that to the winning entry from Ms Arpitha Kodiveri from India. See "Essay Category Winners" First Place here.

(The Back Door)


Excerpts


"Within a few weeks I was bored. New Zealand was charming enough in its own way, but it didn’t have the vibrancy of my home city of Kuala Lumpur, and I couldn’t imagine us choosing to live in this land of sheep and five o’clock closing times instead.

At university this trend continues. Many of my Malaysian friends plan to remain overseas after graduation, or to work in Singapore.

If violence ever broke out in Malaysia my family would have a back door, a way out.

No Brain, No Gain

(I must salute Shaun for an enterprising copy paste in this section)

The Malaysian Dilemma

(Shaun is surprised that his fellow students are aghast at his patriotism.)

Push and Pull

I’ve left a few unanswered questions over the course of this essay. Like why do loving (and well heeled) parents (like Shaun's) tell their children not to come home? And why do many Malaysians I think Malaysia deserves to lose its talented young people? Now at last is the time to answer them.


(Master Supremacist answers the unanswered)


But there’s a darker side. A side behind the strained tranquility and Malaysia Truly Asia (sorry Mr Zecha) adverts.

Since its independence in 1957, Malaysia has been run by the Barisan National (BN) party (cannot blame this Yale student, not being born when BN was established and is unaware of Perikatan), and its regime is an autocracy that institutionalizes racism.

Non-Malays, including the ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities, are discriminated against in favor of the majority Malays, whose support BN depends on.

Malaysian laws make non-Malays pay higher prices for certain goods and services, allocate them only a small percentage of places in public universities, and impose significant barriers against their advancement in the military, police force, civil service, and in government-owned companies. The BN government persecutes minority religions, and major Malay politicians often refer to Chinese and Indian Malaysians as pendatang (immigrants), of inferior status, while the current Prime Minister (apparently not Shaun's) Najib Razak is alleged to have threatened to ‘bathe a keris dagger with Chinese blood’.

Furthermore, the BN government is both grossly incompetent and highly corrupt. Billions of dollars in public funds are squandered on cronyism20* and ill-conceived mega-projects21* (*Yale student standard of reference, rofl), instead of being properly used to develop the country. The judiciary is largely comprised of underqualified yes-men, the police force is unreliable, and the public schools and universities are of low standard, such that even Malaysia’s top university, University Malaya, has dropped out of the top 200 universities in the world on all major rankings.22

This is why loving parents (the well heeled who can visit during spring, summer, autumn except winter when I ask them for duit balik kampong) tell their children not to come home. They don’t want their children to live as second-class citizens in Malaysia (the rich are upper class and must be acknowledged as such), where their ambitions will be limited by institutional inefficiency, where they will be passed over for promotion in favor of others, not for any lack of skill, but for the color of their skin. (Shaun had wanted to join the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) ‘Money does have a significant role but the most important factor…is opportunity,’ outlined Wan Saiful Wan an, Founding Chief Executive Member of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs, ‘Malaysia is too politicized and opportunities are not evenly available to everyone,’23.


This is why Malaysians flock to Singapore, not because Singapore’s government is less despotic (it is even more so), but because the Singaporean government at least prizes efficiency (as long as you shut the %^&* up and don't write essays like this about Singapore when residing in Singapore), and recognizes merit regardless of race. When a Malaysian renounces his citizenship (in time like Shaun), he doesn’t see it as an unpatriotic betrayal, he sees it as washing his hands off a regime that has marginalized and persecuted him. As one Malaysian, Wan Jon Yew, explained: ‘I’m not proud of being a Malaysian because I think the government doesn’t treat me as a Malaysian.’24. Migration is beneficial because it increases efficiency; it allows young Malaysians to move to take their best offers, to move to where their ability is truly valued. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and migration helps to reduce this wastage.

Not all Malaysians mass-emigrating are Chinese and Indians. Many Malays are emigrating too. Although they do not face racial persecution, many of their reasons for doing so are the same as those of non-Malays: the corrupt and inefficient system, the lack of security and religious freedom, the quashing of free expression, human rights abuses. Furthermore, Malays face a different form of religious persecution – forced piety by the overzealous Islamic moral police. Non-Muslim Malays and Malay homosexuals are jailed or sent to ‘reeducation centers’25, and earlier this year 80 Malays were arrested for celebrating Valentine’s Day26. In light of this, Malaysia deserves to lose the talents of its young people. It doesn’t appreciate these talents; it punishes its best citizens (If you don't have a paper from an ivy league you are below Master Shaun) – those brave enough to stand up for themselves, or those too principled to fake devotion to a religion they don’t believe in – and instead it rewards its worst elements – the religious extremist, the racist, the sniveling sycophant. In a sense, we as Malaysian citizens deserve to lose the benefits those talents would have brought, because through our participation or collective inaction we allow this wretched state of affairs to continue. Migration is beneficial because it allows Malaysians to leave, and to live in a country that accords them the dignity commensurate with their status as a human being.

The Open (Back) Door

The ability to migrate presents young Malaysians with an open door to the rest of the world. This is not without its drawbacks. Many of the Malaysian émigrés leave not because they are weak or cowardly, but because they are ambitious, or because they are uncompromising – they refused to take orders from those who are their inferiors, or to remain party to a system that is morally indefensible. One cannot help but imagine how much good such spirit could have done if they had no choice but to remain in Malaysia. Not necessarily by engaging in overtly political activities, but by simple apolitical acts – by living their lives in their own way, free from compromise, and refusing to curb their ambitions. As Vaclav Havel explained in his book The Power of the Powerless, such simple acts are often the most potent weapons against oppressive regimes. Thus, migration has its drawbacks – it makes it harder for Malaysia to achieve real change because it takes away some of its most spirited people. (Datuk Hishamuddin, please cancel all emigration applications. Because Master Shaun says you are chasing the good spirited)

However there are also many young Malaysians who choose to return, and who seek to bring real change to the country. People like Nathaniel Tan (who joined Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), serving as an aide to the convict Tian Chua and working for the ex-con, Anwar Ibrahim, as Anwar's secretary for work related to the Foundation For the Future, which Anwar is president of) - a Harvard graduate, who writes books exposing the abuses of the BN regime, even if his efforts meet with harassment and detention. Or Alea Nasihin – a friend of mine (and Loyarburok), and a student at Nottingham University, who resolves to return to work as a human rights lawyer.27 Or myself (having a back door one can talk). For us the open door is comforting. It gives us the courage to say or do things we might otherwise be wary of (to hit and run through the said back door). Because it reminds us that there are limits to what an oppressive government can do. Because we know that even if our efforts harm our careers in Malaysia, even if the BN government hounds us and bars us from getting a job at any major company (Shaun also fancies Petronas) in Malaysia, there will always be many other places (like the Malaysian Insider. LOL) eager for our talents. It allows us to take more risks and dare greater things. The open door presented by migration therefore simultaneously hinders and helps the process of change in Malaysia.

Ich bin ein Inmigrante

‘Once I thought to write a history of the immigrants in America. Then I discovered that immigrants were America.’
- Oscar Handlin


America is not without shortcomings in providing for its immigrants. True equality of opportunity can only be achieved with the shattering of glass ceilings, and there are numerous social barriers that still need to be overcome. To this date, the highest office in the country, that of the President of the United States, can only be held by someone born on American soil (Even here, this DAP like thinking twerp, wants the US Constitution changed). And yet America remains the land of opportunity for so many people. The immigrants in America are integrated far better than those in Europe, because Americans are conscious of the fact that they were all immigrants once. And America has benefitted greatly from this. It gets physics from Einstein, political theory from Arendt, movies from Ang Lee, eye-candy from Maggie Q, and literature from Junot Diaz. The fact that Irish-Catholic immigrants like the Kennedys could become America’s most prominent family, that an Austrian immigrant like Arnold Schwarzenegger could become Governor of California, and that a black man born in Hawaii and raised in Indonesia could become President, is a testament to this tradition. (The ball carrying part)

I am the product of migration. It was through migration that my ancestors from Fujian province in China came to live in Malaysia (and became rich). It is through migration that I have been able to grow up in Malaysia and study in Britain and America (because of my Malaysian parents who made it in Malaysia), and it is through migration that I have had the privilege of learning from people from all over the world. My accent is a bastard mix of British, American, and Malaysian. My upbringing was a schizophrenic blend of liberalism and Asian Tiger Mom style parenting. I revel in living in a mixed-up world and having a mixed-up self.29 I have tried to live consistently with the principles advocated in this essay (cakap tak serupa bikin). Where in my life I have failed (you can still go to the land of sheep) I have accepted it and tried to learn from my mistakes (bigots cannot learn). Where I have succeeded, I have taken pride in the knowledge of having done so myself (oh really?), not needing any legal crutch to prop me up (but you were away all this time to need any crutch. How come?) The only right I have demanded is the right to a fair contest (well you lost this ass'A' contest fair and square. Though I wonder how you made the finals). I think that the right to fair competition is the only thing we can and should expect."


Read more of this egotist here and the reason for the ass'A'.


"I wouldn’t be living in Malaysia and I wouldn’t have had the upbringing I had were it not for migration."

"I was annoyed at something the Malaysian government had done and wanted to write something about it, and this essay competition was an obvious choice."


"In Malaysia Malays are oppressed too, but it’s the ethnic Chinese and Indians who are persecuted the most."


- Shaun Tan


This is not brain drain, this mono mundane maniocal nimrod with bigoted propensity, is brain dead. The kind of brain that should be thrown into the drain. And if this the brain that will be drained , there are a lot of more efficient drainage systems in other countries, like Singapore for this young upstart.


Shaun Tan, you can fuck off leave thru the back door.

And don't come back.
