Malaysian dictionary 2

Don't "cattle" me..., I will wallop you!

In Malaysian dictionary, there is no such word : SHAME. (see old posting Transformation)

A woman minister's husband got a big grant of RM 250 millions from government to set up a cattle farm named National Feedlot Corporation (NFL). (Please check into NFC website to read about the impressive credential and ambitious "sacred" mission of this company)

The Auditor-General’s Report released recently had criticised the NFC, pointing out that it was now “in a mess”. The report said production in 2010 was only 3,289 head of cattle or 41.1 per cent of the target set.

Agriculture Minister Noh Omar, however, responded on October 31 that the project is a success and had met its targets.

Nonetheless, an Opposition leader revealed that the company spent RM 10 millions to purchase two units of luxurious condominium in Bangsar .....

According to its Chairman (Minister's husband): " it is a good business decision ... because it yields better returns for the NFC project compared to keeping the money in a bank. "

So instead of rearing cows, the company purchased two cash cows!!

Malaysians surely know, beneath the surface, it is more than that.......

And it's nothing wrong with it! Many UMNO (dominant Malay party) leaders defended the decision of the company - no corruption, no malpractices, no wrong doing. Morally and legally, it is alright!!

And the woman Minister herself, after a long silence, said it clearly: Don' t disturb me, I have nothing to do with my husband's business....

This is Malaysian Shameless Cattle Gate.(shameful?!?!)

Meanwhile, the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) ranking for Malaysia has dipped from 56th place last year to 60th this year, the worst in 10 years, according to Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M).

There is no such word SHAME in our Malaysian dictionary. We are shameless!!
