疯癫之马

最近前任首相老马(马哈迪)频频发言出位,语不惊人心不死。。。至少他达到了目的,就是不要被人民遗忘,还可以继续玩弄他的权术专长!

在另一厢,有另一条假马(此马非彼马),最近也是频频发言,争取出位,引人注目,以达到他的个人议程。自从他被988电台炒鱿鱼之后,奔波各处,举行座谈会,以伸张正义,维护新闻自由为名,被捧为正义之士。谁知这匹马,自持高傲,以为自己真的有料,竟然变成了癫马,口出狂言,目中无人,疯话连连,最后得罪了好多人,只因为这匹马『嘴衰』兼『嘴臭』!

根据我的一点点了解,迦马(迦马鲁丁)是马来人,父母是前马来亚共产党的党要,后定居中国北京,接受纯华文教育。在政府与马共度的和平协议之下,他们一家人在1994年,获得政府允许,回归大马居住。

迦马以一口流利的华语,在电台当上时事评论员及节目主持人。在三零八大选过后,以关心华人政治而显得突出(因为他是为说华语的马来人)。

不过我对他在电台的表现,觉得这个人有点口水多过茶,有时口无遮拦。。(请看旧帖子电台的话)当时我以为他是位邀请的来宾,原来他是其中的一位节目主持人。

这只变疯的人最近所说的话包括:

1. 华文,淡米尔文小学一无是处,出来的学生因为语言掌握不好,不能融入主流社会,而只能去兜售非法(翻版)光碟,印度人的孩子则成为社会低下层阶级。
2.这位受华文教育的马来人,竟然推销单元教育,(消灭其他语言)。。。这位在华社找吃的人,华族竟然抽华教的后腿,背后插刀!
3.董教总的“放屁”的教学方式。。。
4.华族因为被『洗脑』,才捍卫华小及华教。。。

更不用说他毫无根据地说教育部副部长送子女进入国际学校,而不是政府学校。。。

最后他在千夫所指的情况下,被逼做出道歉,但狐狸的尾巴已经显现了,还能够信他吗?

不要因为一位马来人会说漂亮的华语,而盲目的追随或吹捧。

Our new dog 我们新领养的狗


We decided to adopted another dog to guard the house.

No beagle ... Missy is irreplaceble.

We adopted a mongrel from Paws, the aninmal shelter at Subang Airport Road. By first look, she is not attractive...then again, she is cute, unique and lovable. She is an abandoned puppy about 4 or 5 months old.

She is named Taffy ... then on children's suggestion, Toffy.... and may yet change again!


我们决定再领养一只狗来守卫家园。

不要再同一类的狗,Missy 是不能取代的。

我们到梳邦机场路的动物庇护所,领养了一只杂种狗。第一眼看去,这狗儿没什么吸引人之处 。。。但再看看,她却是很可爱,也非常特别,会令人喜欢。它是出生后不久就被人遗弃,现在大约是四或五个月大。

我们给它命名 Taffy,但孩子建议 Toffy ...可能还会再改呢!

In memory of Missy 纪念Missy

On the day my wife arrived home from her Europe holiday, our beloved dog Missy died.

She was bitten by a snake on Sunday morning 18-7-2010 at about 9:30 am. When Adeline and I sent her to a vet in Balakong, the clinic was not open, Another clinic did not have antivenom in stock. She died peacefully after about 45 minutes while we were still searching for a vet clinic.

The news was withheld from Elizabeth because she was undergoing flying training at an Naval base in England. (She is a cadet of university naval unit). Missy was her favourite dog and skyped with her many times. She was informed of the news after her training.

Missy died defending her owner. She is a brave and lovable dog and will remain in our hearts forever.


18-7-2010 当我太太从欧洲旅行回到家的那一天,家里的狗 Missy 去世了。

它是在早上九点多,被毒蛇咬到中毒而死。 我和大女儿把它带到一间兽医所,却没开店,另一间却是没有解药存货。它就在我们继续寻找兽医所的时候,四十五分钟内,就平安去世了。

我们不敢把这消息立刻传给在英国的小女儿。她最疼这只狗,并和它多次的在网上视频谈过话。当时她正在英国一个海军基地接受飞行训练(她是大学海军组的一位士官),所以不要她受到影响。不过,在她的训练结束后,这消息也终于传达了给她。

Missy 英勇的防卫主人的家园而殉职。它是一只英勇,可爱的狗,将永远存留在我们的心里。

Mooncake Festival 欢庆中秋



Tonight our parish celebrated the Lantern Festival. It was organised by the Chinese Language Apostolate and participated by all language groups.

Parish Priest Fr. William shared his thought by highlighting the legends of the festival especially the passing of the messages inserted in the mooncake.

He posed the question to all parishioners, what is your message to be passed to others, including tonight's theme " communion in the Lord".

Asst Parish Priest Fr. George shared his wonderful experience of celebrating Moon Cake Festival in Taiwan where he learned his Mandarin. He even acted in a play acting as the Chang Er, the beautiful lady that ascended into the moon.

About 500 parishioners of various language groups participated in the festival.

I have to leave the festival early to attend another function thus missed out many great performances by various language groups, especially the youth groups.

George Harrison Bond in Tomorrow never say don't come (to church)
赫占士邦主演 赫赫双娇
























我们的堂区今晚欢庆中秋节。这是由华文促进会主办,其他语言也共同参与。

堂区主任威廉神父分享了中秋节的各种传说,特别是关于在月饼内,暗藏起义讯息的故事。

他抛出了一个问题:今晚的庆祝,你要把什么讯息传给他人呢?包括今晚的主题“主内圆满庆中秋”。

副本堂赫神父也分享了他在台湾学华语时,庆祝中秋的趣事。他在一个话剧中,曾扮演嫦娥。。可以想象该是一个很有趣的表演吧!

大约五百位来自各语言组教友参加了今晚的盛会。

我因为还要去参加另一个宴会,只好提早离开,因而错过了许多精彩的表演,包括来自其他语言组青年队表演。

没了,没了


这个党,这些人,真的没用了!

几天前,交通部长江作汉透露,翁诗杰在任交通部长时,曾指示马六甲交通部,冻结发出MCA 的车牌,而将之发出给马华(MCA)领袖而已。(马六甲车牌头个字母为M)

翁诗杰很不甘愿给人“督背脊”,很快的出示文件,证明他已经否决了这项提议。这件事,在(马华)领袖之间,指来指去,“督”来“督”去,总之好像要“督”死某些人般的。不过,他们可以都督(毒)到死,不会有很大人去理吧。

而我要说的,是这个党及党里面的人,到了这个地步,却是悲惨极了,真的在伦,在理,在法,在制角度来说,没了,没了!

第一:这个党权力当道时,真的大胆到连法制都可骑劫,胆敢把法定的车牌号码轮替玩弄成自己的玩物。。。。真的是混蛋!

第二:这个党的领袖,贵为部长,把部门内部的事,而且还是旧事,暴露出来,以达到私利!公信何在?

第三: 本是同根生,相煎何太急。。。胜利者秋后算账,还要将对方置于死地,恶毒也!仁义何在?

这个党,这些人,你还敢相信吗?

Another day in Cameron Highlands 金马伦高原的另一天


Today my wife and I took the back way of Cameron Highlands to go to Ipoh on a "secret mission".

This is the first time we are travelling on this road which is called "Cameron Highlands-Simpang Pulai" road which took decades to build and was opened only about 3 years ago.

The road is broader than the Cameron Highlands-Tapah road, otherwise it is winding too.

My mission is to deliver a sample bag to Jing Guang in Chemor near Ipoh.

Not that I like to eat, but it is lunch time (sounded familiar?), so Jing Guang and wife Catherine brought us for lunch.

we have simple dishes - Kai Lan (vegetable), Dou ya (bean spout) and a very special dish of Shang Yu Po (Diamond head fish soup) which only served in this town.

Mission accomplished and we returned to Cameron Hightlands at about 3:00 pm.

It was raining and the weather is cool. A cup of tea and some goreng pisang... were best combination. We stopped by a Mamk coffee shop and was served by a cute young girl.

The most popular things in Cameron Highlands right now are: everything strawberry and charcoal fired organic steamboat,

Tonight we have another round of organic steamboat ...with 10 types of vegetables ! God knows it is really organic ... makan 'aja lah!

Mission accomplished 使命完成

今天我和太太取道金马伦高原后方的 “金马伦-新邦波赖” 大道,去执行一道秘密使命。

我们的使命是把一个袋的样本,带到靠近怡保的朱毛镇,交到吴景光的手上。

这是我们第一次使用这道路。它比 “金马伦-打巴”路更宽敞,不过也是相当的弯曲。

不是我喜欢吃,但却是午餐时候(好像很耳熟的一句话!),景光及太太带我们去吃午餐。我们叫的非常简单,但非法特别: 芥兰菜,怡保豆芽及生鱼煲。生鱼煲非常特别,只有在这市镇才有。

使命完成了,肚子也饱了,我们在下午大约三时左右,回到金马伦高原。

下午天下着雨,气候清凉,一杯茶配搭炸香蕉等是最佳配搭。我们到一间瑪玛档,受到一位很可爱的姑娘的友善招待。

现在在金马伦高原,最流行的两样东西是:第一就是草莓及有关的物品及食物,第二则是碳烧有机蔬菜打边炉。

我们今晚再次的吃打边炉晚餐,共有十种有机蔬菜。。。谁知道是否真的有机,吃就是了!

Up to the hill

The newly built Holy Redeemer Church

It is Mid-Autumn Festival today. Children are all outstation... and big children don't carry lantern anymore, so we went up to Cameron Highlands, hopefully can see a bigger moon. (Due to the distance of moon and earth, this year the moon is slightly smaller)

On our way, we stopped by Tanjong Malim with the intention to visit Fr. Charles Chin, the parish priest of Holy Redeemer Church of Tanjong Malim.

The gate was locked... not one was around...padam muka lah kita.

Not because I like to eat, but it was lunch time, so looking for something to eat before we continue our journey to Cameron Highlands.

We found one shop named U One Me Cafe, but the Chinese name isTraditional Ah Ku best Pan Mee (ah ku in Chinese means auntie, mother's sister). It offered macam macam (varities) of pan mee (hand made mee)... original pan mee, dry pan mee. lo pan mee, Tongyam pan mee, curry pan mee .....

Not bad at RM 3.50 per bowl and tasted good ... just like ah ku's cooking.

Arriving at Ringlet, Cameron Highlands at about 5:00 pm. Met up with Cindy and Paul Ng who were previously our Kajang parishioners. Paul started his flower growing business a few years ago to be exported to Japan.

They brought us to an organic steamboat restautant for dinner.

It is raining now in Cameron Highlands, and the moon is no where to be found.

So much for a day.

At our hotel balcony 我们酒店房间的露台谈天

今天是中秋节,孩子在周末回来了,现在每位都在外坡。。再说,大孩子都不提灯笼了,也没什么庆祝中秋节。

所以我们决定“上山”。。到金马伦高原去,希望看到更大的月亮。据说因为地球与月亮距离的关系,今年的月亮会较小一些。

在往金马伦高原的路上,我们到丹绒马林,想拜访救赎主堂的陈赞光神父。到了教堂,发现大门关上,没有一人,有点失望。。。(神父没接听电话)

不是 我们好吃,但却是午餐时间。我们见到一间叫着『传统阿姑板面』的餐厅,里面有各种各样的板面 - 传统板面,乾捞板面,东延板面,滷板面,咖哩板面。。。

一碗板面售价RM3.50,味道不错,正如阿姑所煮的那般的传统。

我们大约在五时左右抵达金马伦高原,拜访了思明及太太Cindy。他们以前是加影的教友,不过思明本身是金马伦人,数年前回到金马伦从事种花事业,外销日本。

他们带领我们到一间有机蔬菜餐厅享用打边炉晚餐。

金马伦高原现在正下着雨,月亮已经躲到云层后面,害羞的不敢出来了。

一天就这样过去了。

Moon cake festival 中秋节


Today is the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calender, we celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival or the Moon cake Festival.

There are hundred types of moon cakes available in the market with fanciful names. My only love is Nutty mooncakes, like the 1 and 2 in the picture above.

Mooncake no 1 is homemade, plenty of almond nuts and melon seeds. Mooncake no 2 is mass-produced, from a famous brand I liked.

Wishing you all a Happy Moon Cake Festival.

今天是八月十五日,我们欢庆中秋节,也是吃月饼的时候。

目前市面上有上百种的月饼,打着标新立异的名字。我的最爱是照片中的果仁月饼,或称金腿月饼。

月饼1是手工月饼,月饼二则是工厂制造。

在此谨祝大家中秋节快乐,好好的享受月饼吧!

Wu Liao People 无聊的人

A lazy raining afternoon. Very "wu liao"... looking at the newspaper, "wu liao" people carrying lanterns, as if in a funeral procession. This group of politicians really spoilt the fun of Mid-Autumn Lantern Festival.

一个懒懒的下午,外面下着雨。很无聊的。。。看看报纸,见到一群无聊的人,手提灯笼,好像是在送殡的。中秋节提灯笼的美景都给这群政客弄“衰”了!


The picture below is real lantern fun! 下面的照片才是真正的提灯乐趣!


Me, wu liao... resting with my dog! 这是无聊的我,和狗儿一起休息。

Happy Malaysia Day 快乐马来西亚日

Today we celebrate Malaysia Day for the first time as a national holiday.

On 16-9-1963, the Federation of Malaysia was formed consisting the then Malaya (gained independence from the British on 31-8-1957), North Borneo (Sabah), Sarawak and Singapore. Brunei decided not to join and remained a protectorate of Great Britain.

It was a federation formed to look after each others interest and to counter the spread of Communism. It was a federation to survive.

Indonesia strongly against the formation and started a military confrontation. They sent soldiers into Malaysia by air and sea. The confrontation ended four years later when Suharto replaced Sukarno as the President of Indonesia.

In 1963, Lee Kuan Yew, then Prime Minister of Singapore led Singapore out of the federation due to ideological and political differences. Singapore issued it own currency valued at 1:1 to Malaysia Ringgit. The then Malaysian Airlines was renamed Malaysia-Singapore Airlines and later broken up into Malaysia Airlines again and Singapore Airlines.

Today the exchange rate of the two currency is S$1 to RM 2.30. Singapore is the fourth wealthiest country in the world according to the latest report with per capita income of US$52,840.00 whereas Malaysia is at No. 59 with a per capita of US$14,275.00 And Singapore Airlines consistently voted the best airlines in the world.

Congratulations.

But the same I cannot offer to Sabah and Sarawak. Despite their rich natural resources and oil and gas reserve, majority of their people are still living in deplorable condition, no running water and electricity supply, infrastructure is backward, rural children are not receiving good education and schools mostly in dilapidated condition.

If not for the 2008 general election Tsunami, Sept 16 will remain holiday to these two states only....siok sendiri saja! The BN government realised that the support from Sabah and Sarawak is important to its survival, declaring sept 16 as a national holiday would calm the angry voices of the East Malaysians.

On this Malaysia Day, Air Asia should have been proclaimed the Hero of Malaysia Day. If not for Air Asia, West Malaysians are still thinking that East Malaysia is ulu ulu (undeveloped) place, and people are very very sakai (backward).

With " Now everyone can fly ", it sped up the integration of two people for the past 5 years in which the politicians failed to do for the past 47 years!

Congratulations to our East Malaysia fellow citizens on OUR Malaysia Day for the first time. My apology to you for taking your resources and money (but not in my pocket) and I promise to love you and be with you all the times! (if only Air Asia don't raise airfare too much)

Happy Malaysia Day !

今天我们全国第一次欢庆马来西亚日。

在 16-9-1963, 马来西亚联邦正式成立。当时的成员有马来亚(在31-8-1957获得独立),北婆罗洲(沙巴),砂劳越及新加坡。汶莱因为看不到有好处,而不参加,继续成为英国殖民地保护区。

这是一个以利益关系而成立的联盟。它们是为了各自的利益及钳制共产主义的扩张,在英国的鼓励下成立的。

印尼非常反对这个联盟,而决定以军事对抗,来阻止这个国家的发展。当时印尼从水路及空路,派出游击队到南马地区,进行渗透到工作。这个对抗维持四年后,因着苏哈多接任苏卡诺成为总统而结束。

一九六五年八月九日,新加坡的李光耀因为政治及治国理念的分叉,而把新加坡脱离马来西亚,成为一个独立小国。当年新加坡发行自己的新钞票,与马币的兑换是一比一。那时的马来西亚航空公司也改名为马来西亚-新加坡航空公司,后来再分开,成为马来西亚航空公司及新加坡航空公司。

今天,马币与新币的兑换率是一新币兑换二点三马币。根据最新的金融报告,新加坡是世界上第四个最富有的国家,国民平均收入为52,840美元,马来西亚则是排名第59,年均收入为 14,275.0美元。新加坡航空公司多次的被选为世界最佳的航空公司。

真是可喜可贺。

同样的话,我就不敢对东马的沙砂两州说了。沙巴和砂劳越虽然拥有丰富的天然资源,石油及煤气,但大部分人民还是生活在贫困的环境里,没有自来水及电力的供应,交通系统落后,乡区孩童没有得到好的教育,很多学校都是破陋的建筑物。

假如不是308大选的海啸效应,使到执政的联盟政府体会到,它们的生存需要依靠东马的支持,也为了平息当地人民的埋怨,才宣布916为全国公共假期。不然,916还是会只有这两州在自己爽的庆祝而已。

在这个马来西亚日,亚航应该给宣认为英雄!假如不是亚航,西马的人民还以为沙巴及砂劳越两州,是个ulu ulu 的蛮荒地方,人民还是很落后的 sakai 。

亚航在过去的五年里,“现在每个人都能够飞” 把东西马两地的融合加快,比政治人物过往47年所作的还来的多。

恭祝东马的同胞们,我们共同的第一个『马来西亚日』快乐。对不起我们把你们的资源和财富拿走(但不在我的口袋)。我爱你们,也会常常和你们在一起。(还得看亚航是否还能够保持廉价)。

快乐马来西亚日!

沙爹布城旅游配套 Satey and Putrajaya


等了24 小时之后, 今天在傍晚六时左右,大华神父,瑞添修士及两位台湾来的朋友,到了我家。

我的同姓,潘珊珊姐妹(照片左二),来自台湾屏东,曾在大华神父晋铎时,来过马来西亚 (旧帖子客人来)。杨翠如(照片右一),则是第一次见面。

客人来了,就得好好的招呼。傍晚的最佳配套是:加影沙爹晚餐,布城夜景观赏。

可爱的翠如,第一次尝到世界出名的加影沙爹,给沙爹酱吸引了。。。考虑是否要打包回去台湾,中秋节烧烤会的时候,加上沙爹酱。。。绝配!

当提到去布城(PutraJaya) 的时候,她询问布城是不是售卖布料的城市!!!嘻嘻嘻嘻。。。布城不是卖布的城市,是纪念我国第一任首相,东姑阿都拉曼王子也!(Putra 是马来语王子的意思)


过后我们夜游布城。果然夜景迷人,把远方的客人给吸引住了。我告诉他们,马来西亚非常富有,从财政部的建筑群就可一窥端倪了(几乎一公里长)。

美丽的夜景,可惜我们的非专业相机,不能一尽捕抓,只能拍到几张较满意的照片。。。不过,希望她们能够以后再来重游,除了观赏夜景,还可以在白天观赏布城另一风姿。

她们将在明天早上回国。祝愿她们顺风,常常喜乐健康,后会有期。 (面子书更多照片)


After almost 24 hours of delay, finally, Fr. Lawrence, Bro. Joseph and two Taiwanese friends arrived at my house at about 6:00pm.

San San (in white dress), visited Malaysia a year ago during Fr. Lawrence's Priestly Ordination (Old posting Visitors ). Cui Ru is from Taichung, and meeting me for the first time.

A special package awaited for them: Kajang Sate for dinner and Putrajaya Night tour.

The jovial and lovable Cui Ru loved the world famous Kajang Satey very much. She was contemplating whether to bring back some Satey source for the coming Mid-autumn festival BBQ in Taiwan. It will be a great combination.

After meal, we went for Putrajaya night tour. They were amazed by the grand buildings and designs of Putrajaya. I told them Malaysia is a rich country simply by looking at the complex of the Ministry of Finance... almost 1 km long.

Our ordinary cameras could not capture the splendid night scene of Putrajaya. Hope they can come back again to visit Putryjaya during day time to see a difference facet of the city.

They are leaving for home by morning flight tomorrow. Wishing them a safe journey and do come back again. (More pics in Facebook)

Hospital visit 探病

In the afternoon at about 3:00pm, I went to Hospital Universiti Malaya (UH) to visit Francis, our former church Sacristan who is suffering from colon cancer.

He was admitted to UH two weeks ago due to severe pain. He is receiving high dosage of morphine to control his pain. His condition is bad.

I saw him gasping for air, lung congested with phlegm. He has been reduced to half of his usual body size.

He was not able to talk and just stared blankly .....

I felt painful.

God, I offer Francis up to you, please take care of him!

Hospital is a big and cold place
医院是一个又大又冷的地方

今天下午三点左右,我到马大医院探望教堂的前祭衣室管理员方济格 (Francis). 他是位大肠癌患者

他在两个星期前,因为极度的体痛,而进入了马大医院。目前医生给他注射定量的吗啡来减低他的痛苦。他的情况严重,非常的不乐观。

我看到他呼吸幸苦,因为肺部有许多痰。他现在已经是以前的半个体型了。

我觉得很心疼。

天主,我把方济格奉献给你,请你照顾他吧!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
14-9-2010 10:20 am posted 最新跟进:

I was being informed that Francis passed away at about 2:00 am this morning.

我收到通知,Francis 在今天凌晨两点左右,与世长辞。

Guests are here 客人来

I have a quiet Hari Raya holiday except today... Sunday.

Picked up Agnas Lim (my JB god-daughter. pic left) and friend Irene from Airport at noon. They flew in from Sandakan after the Young Legionaries Fellowship, making a brief stopover in KL, and going back to Johor Baru by 8:30 pm flight.

Famous Kajang Satey was their choice for lunch and a visit to the Church of the Holy Family completed the afternoon package. They left for airport at 6:00 pm.

Hot on heels of Agnes and Irene, Fr. Lawrence and his Taiwanese visitors supposed to arrive at Kajang between 6:00 - 7:00 pm . They were driving down from Bukit Mertajam after lunch from Penang. Fr. Lawrence has also made a survey on the Church of St. Anne for my supposedly posting as an Assistant Parish Priest there (See 6/9/10 posting).

Famous Kajang Satey plus Putrajaya night tour has been lined up for him and his oversea visitors.

Alas! at about 7:45pm, Fr. Lawrence called... he was caught in the traffic jam along North-South highway near Gopeng (200 kms from Petaling Jaya!). Post Hari Raya traffic jam started before Ipoh.....

My dinner for the night was.... Instant Mee!

At 10:50 pm, SMS from Fr. Lawrence: "Baru sampai ...(just arrived home in Petaling Jaya).."





















我的几天开斋节假期,在安静中很快就过去了,只有今天(星期天)例外。

中午时候,到机场接载了新山乾女儿美芳(图左边)及她的朋友月芬。她们刚参加了山打跟青年交流会,今早直接飞来吉隆坡,将乘搭晚上八时半的班机回去新山。

闻名的加影沙爹是她们的午餐首选,加上参观圣家教堂,就是她们这个下午的顶佳配套。他们在傍晚六时正前往机场了。

紧接她们之后,黄大华神父及台湾朋友也应该在傍晚6至7时左右来到加影。他们是在槟城住了两天后,在大山脚用了午餐,就直接驱车到加影来。大华神父也在大山脚“观察”了圣妇亚纳堂的情况,以助我那“假设将成为助理本堂” 的进驻事宜。(看6/9/10帖子

著名的加影沙爹加布城(PutraJaya)夜游的配套,等着他们的到来。

在晚上七时四十五分左右,接到大华神父的电话,他们被困在南北大道,靠近务边的车龙里。务边离开八打灵大约二百公里。原来开斋节假期后的车龙,在怡保前已经开始了。。。

我今晚的晚餐:快熟面!

在晚上十点五十分,收到大华神父的简讯:“ Baru sampai (刚刚到八打灵的家)。。。”

Transformation 转型


Dear Prime Minister and Puan, your appearance in TV to convey Hari Raya greetings looked very rigid and serious and ...stoned. Compared with the pictures at the back, you needed a 'transformation' in line with 1 Malaysia, Transforming the Nation...

Sincerely wishing you and Puan a happy and joyful Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

亲爱的首相及夫人,你在电视上播放开斋节贺词时,看起来好紧绷,严肃,甚至有点恍惚。与你们后面的照片相比,你们应该来个转型,就如你说提倡的『一个马来西亚,国家转型。。』。

衷诚的祝贺您开斋节快乐。

Selamat Hari Raya 开斋节

Muslims celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Eid ul-Fitr today. It marks the end of a month of fasting (Ramadan).

It is a quiet day for me. My wife is holidaying in Taiwan, my two elder children are no where to be found..(having their own programme). So I only went for my neighbour, Shariffah's open house.

Wishing all Muslims a happy and peaceful holidays.

回教徒今天欢庆开斋节。这意味着一个月的神圣斋戒月的圆满结束。

今天是很平静的一天。我的太太正在台湾旅游,两个大孩子不知踪影。。他们有自己的节目。我只有去拜访邻居莎丽花一家而已。

祝贺所有的回教徒朋友开斋节快乐,平安。

Joke of jokes 天大笑话

Blogger Hassan Skodeng wrote a joke in his blog in March 25 entitled " TNB to sue WWF over Earth Hour ".

In this post, he wrote that TNB Chief called a pressed conference to denounce WWF as green terrorist for heralding the world-wide energy saving campaign. TNB (Tenaga National Bhd National Energy Company) would take legal action against WWF (World Wide Fund) for organising the Earth Hour causing the company "millions in unrealised revenue".

That was a lively piece, a good joke and parody.

People with sound mind, or anyone who is able to surf the net, would know and appreciate this joke with a sweet smile.

But this is no joke ... at least to TNB and some humourless big-faced and stone-faced government officials. TNB lodged a complaint to MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) against the blogger.

On Sept 2, MCMC charged Hassan Skodeng in court for posting a false blog entry with the intention of causing hurt to the feelings of others !!!!???!!! THIS IS A REAL JOKE AND LAUGHING STOCK !!

Hassan Skodeng, whose real name is Irwan Abdul Rahman, 36 , is an editor of The Malay Mail and a cartoonist. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was released on bail.

So be careful, not only blogger, watch what you say in coffee shops and mamak stores, someone from MJMC (Malaysian Joke Muting Commission) is at your back catching your jokes ... and charging you in court!

Beware of people not laughing at jokes.. these are the people robbing us Malaysians of fun and humour. They must be neutralized ... by legal and rightful ways!

一位名为哈山斯可登的部落客,于今年三月二十五日,在他的部落格发表了一则虚拟故事,题目 “ 国能(国家能源公司 TNB)将起诉世界自然基金会(WWF)的帖子。

这个帖子里是说的国能总裁召开了一项新闻发布会,谴责世界自然基金会为“绿色恐怖份子”,因为它提倡了全世界节能运动,发起了『世界一小时』熄灯运动,使到国能白白的损失了“千万元不能获得的收益”。

这是一篇生动的笑话及创作。

任何正常的人,会上网的人,都知道这是一则笑话,也会从内心发出赞赏(这创作)的一个会心微笑。

但这不是笑话。。。至少对那些缺乏幽默感的大人物及那些面无表情的政府官员。九月二日,大马通讯及多媒体委员会(MCMC)在法庭提控了这位部落客,因为他在网上贴放假讯息,伤害了他人的感受 !?!?!? 这才是天大的笑话,天大的笑柄!?!?!!!

哈山斯可登原名艾文阿都拉曼,36岁,是一份报纸的专栏编辑,也是一位漫画家。他否认有罪,获得保释出外候审。

各位,不只是部落客,你们也得小心在咖啡店,麻麻档时,小时你们说的笑话,可能在你的后面,就有『马来西亚肃笑委员会』 (MJMC) 的成员,偷听你的笑话。。。然后控告你上法庭。。!!

小心那些对笑话不笑的人 。。。。这些都是剥夺我们马来西亚公民的生活乐趣及幽默的人,应该给铲除 。。。当然是利用合法及正确的途径啦!

Rectification 改正


Apology!

Due to oversight, non-Facebooker visitors are not able to see "more pics in Facebook". I have mistakenly put in a different like code.

It has been rectified ... my Facebook pictures (album) are now accessible by everyone.

Thank you.

非常抱歉!

因为我的疏忽,不是面子书(Facebook) 书友的到访朋友,不能看到我放在面子书的照片。这是因为我放上来错误的链接码。

现在已经改正了 。。。 面子书上的照片,每个人都可以看得到。

谢谢。
