Only in Malaysia – “Some things are simply impossible” by P. GUNASEGARAM

Two prices for petrol won’t work, not even in Malaysia

IT IS May 1. Malaysia is in the midst of a major experiment. It is, in the true spirit of “Malaysia Boleh”, embarking on something that had never before been done anywhere, anytime successfully.

If we succeed, it would be yet another world first. It would dwarf the Petronas twin towers in terms of impact. Climbing Everest – which has been done by over 1,500 people – will be nothing in comparison.

Sailing around the world has been done many times before and is no longer necessary since we have powered boats, but that will be a tiny drop in the oceans sailed compared with what we are attempting to do now.

On that day, I take my 20-year-old BMW 525i — those of you who know cars know that it has a 2.5 litre engine but the car value is less than RM25,000, way below the price of any new car — to the petrol station.

I go to the pump where petrol costs RM1.80 a litre, but no, they look at my car and say that it definitely does not have an engine capacity of 1.6 litres or less. That means I can’t fill up there, they say. Go that way and pay RM2.10 a litre.

Why? I asked. I am not rich, but I am not poor either. Why ask me to pay the price the rich pay for their petrol? Just because I drive a high engine capacity car (its terribly old, by the way), does that mean that I am rich and therefore must pay more for my petrol?

The petrol pump attendant looks askance at me. He’s pleading with his eyes. Behind me, a Haji waits with his old Mercedes Benz in tense negotiation with another pump attendant. There are three or four negotiations going on.

In petrol kiosks across the nation these scenes are repeated – it takes 30 minutes to fill up your tank even if you drive a car with an engine capacity of 1600cc or less. But then, this is Malaysia, the land where anything can, and does, happen.

By this time, the petrol attendant has a twinkle in his eye. “Sir,” he begins, hopefully, “you fill up your tank at the old price, but you just pay RM5 to me, OK? You win, I win.”

I do some quick calculations. A full tank will mean at least 60 litres. At 30 sen a litre, I save RM18. Give him RM5 and I am still RM13 up. Yes, that’s a good deal, far better than having to pay RM18. I signal to him.

In a thrice the price changes on the display. I fill up, and surreptitiously hand over the five bucks. I saunter over to my car, start it and nonchalantly drive away. Another day in boleh-land.

Poor Pak Haji has more scruples. He continues to protest but for him, poor as he was, it will be higher prices for petrol. But unlike Pak Haji, most people are quite happy to avoid paying their dues to the Government.

Back home, I turn on the TV to watch the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister aver that this latest move to have one price for the rich and one for the poor will save the government hundreds of millions of ringgit a year. Really?

You might know that we already have had two prices for diesel. Fishermen pay lower prices. Can you guess what happened? Their consumption of diesel increased considerably – I think it was two- or three-fold over two to three years. But here’s the strange thing: the amount of fish caught did not – it declined!

How is that? I don’t think they went on joy rides on subsidised diesel. There is just one explanation – the fishermen, at least some of them, were siphoning off the diesel to sell it to others at higher prices.

It made them richer, but I am sure that was not the way the Government – or the public – wanted it.

When you subsidise everyone, it is easy. One price for everyone. The only problem is smuggling across the borders. And since oil is a bulky item that requires considerable storage capacity, it is not easy, provided Customs officials are straight and vigilant.

Oh, Malaysia, my heart bleeds for this country of mine (and yours too). The solution is so simple and yet we don’t see it – which has to mean that we don’t want to see it. We want to touch our noses by moving our hands behind our heads first.

There is just one way to solve the subsidy problem – much like the solution to the AP (approved permit) problem. Simply abolish it – and that goes for the associated taxes too. (If we have a tax that is greater than the subsidy, we are NOT subsidising the product.)

That way, everybody pays the true price of goods. If prices go up, we all pay for it. If prices go down, we all benefit from it. If we use more of it, we will pay more, and vice versa. The rich will use more oil and they will pay for it. The poor use less and pay less. Simple.

We must have just one price for one grade of product. If the world price moves too high, and considering that we are net exporters of energy, we may choose to subsidise the oil price. But still, one price is what we must have. Anything else spells disaster.

If the Government wants to relieve the burden on the poor, then simply establish an effective, tamper-proof, independent and objective system to determine who are the poor and give the money directly to them.

Some things are impossible, notwithstanding our penchant to try for the unachievable. When there are two prices for the same product at the same place, then someone other than the Government will benefit from arbitraging between the two. You can bet your life on that.

Managing editor P. Gunasegaram hopes that no enforcement officer comes knocking at his door. He was merely building a scenario and has no intention of paying any money under the counter. Promise!

Only in Malaysia - Ex Pm accusing U.S staging the 9/11?

“There is strong evidence that the Sept 11 attacks on the United States that killed nearly 3,000 could have been “staged” as an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is evidence that the attacks were staged.

“If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,” the former prime minister told a press conference here yesterday after delivering his speech at the General Conference for the Support of Al-Quds to aid the Palestinians.

He said killing innocent people to provide an excuse for war was not new to the US.”

Read more on TheStar.....

So our Ex-Pm is claiming U.S just made the biggest stage of all saying they planned it all for the September 11 attack on 2001. Well I can say the same, the Malaysian Government could have also planned the Allah word issue and paid a bunch of monkey to burn the church in West Malaysia. It was never an issue before, why all a sudden complain about Christian using “Allah”?

The Rakyat are not stupid, we have brain and we can notice of such event taking place. But our government needed to distract us the Rakyat from the main issue such as the missing engine, the c4’ed Mongolian chix, and many more UMNO related problem. The Government exploit this weakness of most Muslim who are having tunnel vision thinking the Christian might exploit the word to invite other Muslim into Christianity. Trying to accuse us Christian of using their God “Allah” and turning it into a big issue.

I mean like this is getting pretty lame, don’t they have better things to do then staging a drama like this? I really wish we Sabahan could get independence away from Malaysia. Because the government are getting really sick, those with money are running away from Malaysia. Those who can’t afford to run away like myself is force to live with it and  yes watch as the drama goes on. Who knows maybe in the near future the government might just force all the Malaysian to convert or burn the Christian. Then again don’t think that would ever happen in Sabah. Because we had the 1 Malaysia concept long before Najis ever thought about it. The sepuluh 3 (RM10 FOR 3 tin beer) did help a lot in it lol…

U.S. warns of possible attack in Malaysia's Sabah

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – The United States Embassy in Malaysia has issued a travel advisory warning that criminal and terrorist groups were planning attacks against foreigners in the Borneo island state of Sabah.

The notice posted on the embassy's website and dated Friday, said resorts located in isolated areas of eastern Sabah posed a concern.

It urged "extreme caution" in connection with any travel in isolated areas of eastern Sabah, including Semporna and the islands of Mabul and Sipadan.

I guess even the U.S are feeling how dangerous Malaysia is now. Ever since our idiotic Government tried to ban the “Allah” word claiming to be their got and yes being a bunch of fanatic who claims this is their god and nobody else should use the word. At the moment I don’t believe those people are even Islam, as most of my Muslim friends don’t seem to have any issue with it or I can say most of the local Muslim Sabahan are ok with it.

Same goes to majority of the West Malaysian I can say, so who are this bunch of people complaining about other religious using their word? Do they not understand this “Allah” does not belong to anyone, they dare claim it theirs? They bought “Allah”?

Can the Christian do the same and say “Tuhan” is theirs and it should not be used on our national anthem of Malaysia Negaraku because this is a Islamic Country and they should replace it with “Allah”. This government don’t ever use their brain is it now days, thinking we are idiots who give them money so they can get rich and powerful.

The Sabahan should round up, get together, and don’t think of making quick money all the time. We should start opposing this people who are trying to take our land, our natural resources, our tradition (Drinking is 1 of them),  even our culture. We should start opposing this corrupted Government and fight for our independence.

Waiting the arrival for my NuffNang Second Cheque

Finally after like er.. wait could have claimed this months ago. But then I notice there are no new advertisement so it just made me click the claim button. A single click and they start processing your claim, kind of good but would better if there was a confirmation button to say like “Do you really want to claim now?”

The reason would be because sometimes when you click on a link and just wait till it load up. Your connection might get disconnected and causing you to get a blank screen on your internet browser. This happened to me and yes I thought Nuffnang had not proceed with the claim but well it did and yes… 1 long list just look at the picture below:

nuffnang

I don’t think it be a good idea to post all the advertisement name as it might just slow down my blog. So from here on it take about a month plus for them to complete verifying my advertisement and so on.. eh wait.. no it takes more then 2 months. I check my previous post and yes I did mention how long it took NuffNang to send my cheque here in Kota Kinabalu Sabah:

Then again anyway I took my claim on the 01 Jun 09 22:48. Where now is 14 August 2009 09:15, which is like 2 months and 14 days?”

The current claim was requested on 11 Jan 10 14:04 so I just hope it be much faster then last year. Also not that I am complaining about the claim button but sometimes you might just changed your mind last minute after clicking the button and can’t do anything about it already.

Latest Firefox update include blocking reported website by default

If you are surfing the net and going to one of your regular warez, porn, or maybe some comic website which you usually read. All a sudden you get this screen:

firefoxblocking

Yes Firefox seems to be helping you block those reported site!!! pretty good for newbie but for most I.T person or maybe just me.. I find it really annoying.

I am surfing my regular manga site like HomeUnix Manga.  There are new chapters and so yes I click on it but only to see the picture are being block. At first I thought it was homeunix website having some malware or virus problem and inserting those pictures claiming to be the latest naruto or one piece. But after surfing another site like ISOhunt .. I get the same picture.  I don’t find that normal where I did remember firefox installing a new update yesterday I think. So I checked the firefox option and on security tap.. there I saw the two most annoying function ever created:

firefoxoption

See the screen above and the area highlighted with yellow line?

“Blocked reported attack sites”

“Block reported web forgeries”

You can check out all the term for this two on:

Mozilla phishing & protection FAQ

Then again just untick this two if you are getting the same problem as I am.

Only in Malaysia – Muslim attacking church for using Allah word

chapelpjokvolunpjok bombapjok  n_ngyenyen_latest
Attacks were done on several church above are some of the pictures

 

Here are the bunches of idiots who insist on using “Allah” for them self only and yes not for Islam but for their fucking self.

prot This people would be dead here in Sabah by now for doing such a silly protest.

 

I don't really mind this idiots banning us from using the word "Allah" but then the court has allowed the Christian to use it so why the fuck complain?  If they are not happy then go pray to god and seek help. They think they are the right one then why don’t they start praying and see the changes? if nothing happen then should just shut up and go start jacking off at the wall.

Then again I some how feel like someone in power had paid some people to attack the church, not sure why but maybe thinking the same as I am. Just let the fucking word go to those bunch of monkeys as it is not really a big issue. But this is just me assuming like the C4’ed Mongolian model :)

Only in Malaysia - 54-year-old grandmother charged with sexual misconduct

Dozens of Malaysians charged with sexual misconduct in New Year's Day hotel raids, including a 54-year-old grandmother, will face court next month, officials said Tuesday.

Malaysia's Islamic morality police arrested 58 Muslim Malays for "khalwat" or "close proximity" under religious laws that bar Muslims from being alone with a member of the opposite sex before marriage.

"We will be charging them in a sharia court in February. If found guilty they face a fine and a six-month jail term," Ahmad Rafli Abdul Malek, head of the Pahang Islamic Department, told AFP.

Ahmad Rafli said the 54-year-old woman, a grandmother of eight, was caught with a 38-year-old man.

He related that when his officers knocked on their hotel door, they said: "How can we open the door. We are naked."

Malaysia has a dual-track legal system and Islamic courts can try Muslims -- who dominate the multicultural population -- for religious and moral offences.

She Did Not Deserve to be Molested at Siloso Beach - Facebook

During new year’s eve at the 2009 countdown beach party at Sentosa’s Siloso Beach, 4 Indian men were filmed molesting a girl. Unfortunately, 4 men who were dancing beside her decided to outrage her modesty. The more alarming thing is that all these happened in the open public the elevated platform, and there were obviously many party-goers around them, but no one did anything.
Some say she deserves it, but we think she DID NOT deserve to be molested!
Here are the picture of those Molester:

Here is the most scandalous video sparking controversy in Singapore. It is of an apparent Singaporean girl dancing at a New Year's party in only her bra and panties (or bikini) surrounded by a brunch of horny dudes. Of course one thing lead to another and one of the horny dudes lost his damn mind and tried to rip off her underwear. Did I mention she was only wearing what appear to be her underwear? Yup, the asshole seem like he was going to try to rape her in front of a crowd of people with cameras. After the asshole try to rip off her bra and panties she got the hint that it was time for her to leave. Public "molestation" at Siloso Beach Countdown Party, this is how Singapore welcome 2010! It is going to be an interesting year!!!

New Crab Species Looks Like A Fruit

A new species of crab that looks like a strawberry has been discovered in Taiwan by Marine biologist Professor Ho Ping-ho. Just look at the pictures:

capt.1cc7ea7338324ba583a16213ac3cd33b.taiwan_strawberry_crab_tpe802 crab_2010_monster_397x224

They are similar to a species that lives around Hawaii, Polynesia and Mauritius, but the new crabs have clam-shaped shells with white polka dots, which makes them distinct.

15514659New crab species found on a Taiwan beach

Both are female and the biggest measures 2.5cm across. Although the crabs are now dead, they have been made in to specimens for further study. Professor Ho's discovery has been confirmed by another specialist. He is now writing an essay on the new species.

2009 the past.. now 2010

Well should have blogged about this I think like 5 days ago. Just wanted to write about my 2009 and my new year resolution.. Then again you know we Sabahan when there is something to party about we DRINK DRINK AND DRINK. This applies to majority Sabahan and not minor ok, then again I guess every where in the world is the same.

How was my 2009?

Started off a bit slow during the early year and well some how I changed my job line into sales. Where by early April I am officially doing Sales, in the Real Estate line hoping to earn a living by this too. Finally could see some changes in my life would not say stable then again what kind of job would give you a stable life? lol

There were times when it was hard but Griselda supported a lot and yes I don’t think I can live with out having her around now days. We still can have fun together during those times then again there are good times too.

As for my blog I guess most of you might have forgotten that I started using those advertisement paying blog thing. Previously mentioned when I officially started using Blogspot, I did make some money out of it last year. About RM600.00 plus and yes it was spend on alcohol only.. haha Made more from Adsense then Nuffnang. Not much but would just consider it as additional pocket money he he he
