Selamat Pagi Malaysia...Betul ka Makan Quinoa lebih sihat dari Makan Dedak?

The Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement clarifying that Najib was advised by doctors to eat quinoa for his daily nutrition. Notwithstanding what his Doctors have advised him, here are the reasons why this Idiot should NOT eat Quinoa. 

With thanks to Dfm Haji Mohamad.

KESAN PEMAKANAN BIJIRAN "QUINOA"......

1. Melahirkan rasa takut terutama kepada isteri.
2. Mengakibatkan belitan pada lidah hingga menyukarkan untuk berkata benar (kalau menipu lidahnya akan berkeadaan normal).
3. Menyebabkan halusinasi yang membuatkan si pemakan berasa dirinya saja yang betul dan hebat.
4. Membuatkan tumbuhnya lebihan kulit pada muka - dipanggil sindrom muka tebal / muka tembok.
5. Menyebabkan tumbuhnya lebihan tulang pada tangan, apa yang dipanggil sindrom panjang tangan.
6. Mengakibatkan penyakit lupa yang kronik sehingga tidak tahu ada wang yang banyak masuk ke akaun sendiri(ini cuma contoh)
7. Membuatkan kejangan pada otot paha sehingga pemakanannya akan kelihatan sering mengepitkan kaki.
8. Menyebabkan bibir kemerahan bagaikan digincu.
9. Selain dari rasa takut kepada isteri, ia juga menyebabkan rasa takut kepada orang tua yang berumur lebih 90 tahun.
10. Membuat seseorang itu hilang pertimbangan sehingga sanggup beri RM200 juta kepada sekumpulan lelaki berserban tuala yang hilang arah hal hukum Tuhan.
11. Memekik memekik sampai meyembur air liur bila diatas pentas depan awam.
12. Kuat menabur janji dana berbilion bilion namun tiba masa habuk ja boleh.
Disebabkan ini, para saintis tersebut menasihatkan agar tidak menjadikan quinoa sebagai makanan ruji.

Please refer to the image below. You will see that eating Quinoa or not, his myriad of advisors should have advised him that when you are as fat as Mrs Idiot, a side profile shot is not the thing to do.



 Is Mrs Idiot also on a Quinoa diet? Bloody unlikely !

cakap cakap : Saudara Hussein.....

Sometime in Jun 2015 I received this from abu hassan adam. I do not know abu hassan then, nor do I know him know...but reading what he wrote to me some years ago only serves to remind me that nothing much has changed and what he wrote them is still relevant today. 


Saudara Hussein,
Entah macam mana dalam banyak hal kita sependapat. Cuma bezanya ialah suadara lebih 'kuat' dan bersemangat dari saya. Saudara masih terus menulis dan memberikan komen saudara untuk dibaca sedangkan saya merasakan begitu 'lemah' dan tidak bersemangat untuk teus menulis memandangkan segala apa yang saya tulis ibarat seperti 'anjing menyalak bukit'. Oleh itu saya mengambil sikap 'tidak peduli' juga seperti yang diamalkan oleh kebanyakan rakyat Malaysia pada hari ini.

Kadang-kadang terfikir juga. "Apa perlunya aku menghabiskan masa dan memerah fikiran untuk menyelematkan negara. Lebih baiklah 'bersama' dengan golongan yang terus 'relax' dan terus menerus merompak wang negara"
Terus terang saya amat setuju dengan sikap dan tindakan yang saudara lakukan itu. Saya merasakan ramai golongan yang 'sewaktu' dengan kita berpendirian seperti yang saudara rasakan itu. Kehidupan yang dilalui di negara ini (Malaysia) sudah tidak sama dengan apa yang pernah kita alami. Saudara agak bertuah kerana dapat 'melarikan' diri daripada keadaan yang amat tidak menyenangkan fikiran dan perasaan di negara kini.
Apalah erti kesenangan sekiranya walaupun tinggal di rumah besar, berkereta besar tetapi kesengsaraan berada di mana-mana. Apalah erti kebahagiaan sekiranya kezaliman, penyelewengan dilakukan secara berleluasa.Dan yang amat malangnya ialah ramai diantara rakyat Malaysia terutamanya orang Melayu (seperti kita) semacam menyetujui apa yang berlaku walaupun dalam keadaan 'tertindas'.
Mungkin agaknya latarbelakang pendidikan kita ( zaman British) yang menyebabkan kita lebih menyanjung negara orang putih. Saya tidak mahu mengulangi apa yang saudara coretkan mengenai Melborne. Cuma saya juga merasakan keadaan sedemikian wujud di London. Walaupun saya tidak tinggal di London tetapi hampir setiap tahun saya akan berada di London dan tinggal bersama anak saya di sana.
Dengan jelas dapat dirasakan perbezaan pemerintahannya dan cara mereka mentadbirkan negara. Semacam wujud apa yang dikatakan sebagai 'civilization'. Kita merasa senang dan aman dan sentiasa berfikiran terbuka.
Mungin apa yang kita rasa dan kita perkatakan tidak disukai oleh kebanyakan rakyat Malysia. Mungkin ada yang mengatakan, 'hujan emas di negeri orang hujang batu di negara sendiri'. Mungkin peribahasa ini sudah tidak sesuai lagi agaknya. Ini tidak pula bermakna bahawa 'orang' seperti kita tidak sayangkan negara ini. Namun disebabkan kesayangan yang sedemikianlah yang menyebabkan 'kekecewaan' yang amat sangat apabila kata-kata kita tidak dipedulikan.
Salam. Hanya luahan hati seorang yang kecewa.

STATING THE OBVIOUS!




The Two Tuns in Bangsar.


Pagi ini pengunjung berbilang bangsa di Restoran Daun Pisang Bala di Bangsar di kejutkan dengan kehadiran Tun dan Tun Siti.
Manakala kedua dua Tun pula di kejutkan dengan reaksi spontan kesemua pengunjung yang berdiri dan memberikan tepukan gemuruh kepada kedua pasangan tersebut.
Apakah yang mencetuskan reaksi yang sedemikian rupa?.
Ianya tidak lain adalah manifestasi dan demonstrasi (atau lebih tepat lagi LEDAKAN) luahan perasaan serta emosi rakyat yang terbuku dan terpendam selama ini. Rakyat Malaysia yang selama ini berasa bagaikan lumpuh tanpa mampu berbuat apa apa melihat Najib dan Umno bermaharajalela melakukan kemungkaran demi kemungkaran tanpa sezarah rasa segan, malu dan jauh sekali rasa takut. Sambil rakyat segenap lapisan mengharungi kehidupan yang semakin tertekan dan membebankan.
Dan kehadiran Tun di restoran tersebut pagi ini sebagai calon Perdana Menteri Pakatan Harapan di lihat sebagai cahaya di penghujung terowong yang gelap, sejuk dan panjang. Membawa kelegaaan, harapan dan semangat baru. Yang Malaysia bukan sekadar akan kembali pulih tetapi akan mencapai wawasan yang di impi (dan di usahakan) Tun selama ini. In sha ALLAH.
PS..lagi Foto sila ke wall abang Firdaus Abdullah.

End Days for Umno. Dance like there is no tomorrow. While Umno political elites dance away in New York, in Gay Parre or even London town....let these puteri umno from up North have some fun in some dewan serbaguna in Kedah. After all they must have paid for the Dewan Serbaguna, the food and the entertainment themselves....no sweat of that idiot's back!





Malaysia’s Vaunted Land Distribution Scheme Turns Sour


By: John Berthelsen
Malaysia’s long-praised Federal Land Development Authority, or Felda, founded in 1956 to resettle the country’s rural poor into newly reclaimed jungle areas to enable them to grow crops such as palm oil and rubber, has lost RMB1.5 billion (US$382 million) in a political deal to prop up a friend of Prime Minister Najib Razak, according to an internet news portal covering the international palm oil industry.
The International Palm Oil Monitor, established in 2017 to cover the industry, quoted a due diligence report prepared by the KPMG international accounting firm detailing what it called “numerous concerns/improprieties” including cash flow problems, an inflated acquisition price, non-compliance with laws and regulations, excessive borrowing and excessive amounts which are due for repayment to the banks and tax evasion in the purchase of 37 percent of the flailing Indonesia-based PT Eagle High Plantations TBK oil palm concern controlled by Peter Sondakh, an Indonesian Chinese, through his Rajawali Group, named a Tan Sri, one of Malaysia’s high-ranking if arcane honorifics.
“Essentially, as we know, the purchase was a bailout of Eagle High and Peter, who is a good friend of Najib,” said a well-connected businessman in Kuala Lumpur. “Peter owns the St Regis Hotel in Langkawi and in Bali, among other things. Last year, Najib and family and friends spent two holidays in Bali – all courtesy of Peter. Last weekend, they were in the St Regis in Langkawi for Chinese New Year holidays, again courtesy of Peter.”
The KPMG report was actually produced about a year ago and has been written about, although it has been handled very carefully by Malaysia’s mainstream press, all of which is controlled by the government. According to the International Palm Oil Monitor, Eagle High has also received intercompany interest-free advances of US$26 million – none of which has been repaid. The US$505.4 million for the 37 percent is said to have been a 95 percent premium to the closing price at the time, or Rp580 (US0.042 cents) per share. Eagle High is now trading below Rp204 per share. 
Although the story has been floating around, it has achieved added significance because Felda has become a major issue in Malaysia’s upcoming general election, which must be held before June 26 and is likely to be called sometime in April, political analysts in Kuala Lumpur say.
The land scheme, which is given major credit for keeping rural Malays and Indians loyal during Communist attempts to take over the country in the 1950s and 1960s, is in deep trouble from a variety of sources. It is almost sacred to the Barisan Nasional, or national ruling coalition, and particularly the United Malays National Organization, so much so that it is called UMNO’s fixed deposit.
Under the scheme, new settlers were each given 10 to 14 acres to cultivate crops, usually rubber or oil palm. They were required to reside in planned villages where their homes, built by FELDA, were located and included piped water and electricity. Schools, medical centers and places of worship were also provided. The schemes were designed as cooperatives.
But the government engineered a disastrous initial public offering in 2012 on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. The thousands of smallholders who bought what became known as Felda Global Ventures at the time of the IPO saw their investments fall by half because of disastrous mismanagement. 
While the shares surged in 2017 following a management change, the original owners who form UMNO’s vote bank have been furious. Net profit fell by more than 96 percent between 2012 and 2016. For the past year, the entity, which is the world’s largest crude palm oil venture in the world, has been attempting to cope with the Eagle High scandal.
Enter Mahathir Mohamad, the fire-breathing 92-year-old former Prime Minister who has vowed to drive Najib from office. He has campaigned implacably in the Felda areas, saying the scandal is a textbook example of how to steal from the government. “With all the bungling in Felda, this adds to the woes of the BN as far as getting support from Felda settlers in the General election,” said a Kuala Lumpur-based political analyst. “These are people who loved Mahathir and remember back to his period in office as a time when the country’s economy never stopped growing.”
They are also the people who the opposition Pakatan Harapan coalition, with its component the Democratic Action Party, has never been able to touch significantly because of their mistrust of the ethnic Chinese.
Today, according to a Feb. 20 release by the International Palm Oil Monitor, “Felda is sitting on a paper loss of approximately US$300 million. Additionally, Eagle High’s market capitalization is below US$420 million, which means Felda’s 37 percent is now valued at just US$155.4 million, less than one-third what it paid in the first place.
Eagle High’s problems have been compounded by the fact that in April 2017, the European Union pushed through a regulation to ensure that palm oil imported must come from sustainable sources after 2020.
“This does not bode well for Eagle High, whose unsustainable palm oil practices as well as its lack of RSPO and ISPO certifications have been widely documented. Given this, it is unlikely that Eagle High’s revenues will improve in the coming years. In fact, it is more likely to decline once the European Union regulation takes effect,” the Palm Oil Monitor said. “All in all, it looks like Felda’s investment in Eagle High has proven to be a complete bust and did not pan out the way Felda had hoped.”

Abbott and Costello and MACC







MACC Chief Commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad says the drop may have been…
FREEMALAYSIATODAY.COM



Abbott and Costello is shocked that Malaysia's ranking in the global graft index has dropped? Just so that we are clear...Abbott is the old guy on the left and Costello is the guy on the right. Ok...back to the business at hand...Abbott and Costello are shocked! 

Well to me, Abbott seems more shocked then Costello...and not only is Abbott shocked, he seems to be out of his depth trying to make some sense of why he is sitting beside the fornicating KP of MACC. Guilt by association maybe? After all Abbott has been priding himself as being a man of principle and blab blah blah...

Abbott must be embarrass in having to grace that press conference with his presence when he knows what the KP has been up to in Bali and Hong Kong recently.    

Abbott, if truth is to be told...you are there not to grace anything because there is no grace left in your much battered self. You have already been round the block and is still whizzing around trying to gain whatever it is you think you have lost in the past few years in your dalliances with politicians who are way way more streetwise and savvy then you. And even now you are being played like a violin by that Idiot in Putrajaya...and the pity of it all is that everyone knows that you are being taken for a ride, but you don't. 

I think you are older then me...and I am not really comfortable giving you a piece of my mind....so I will cease and desist now.

Just one word of advice...you have seen how that 92 year old Tun Mahathir is still going from strength to strength on the comeback trial to try and right what is wrong in this beloved nation of ours. You, Mr Abbot is no Tun Mahathir.... so chill.  

BOMBSHELL! FELDA LOST RM4.5 BILLION 2013-2016! HOW MUCH DID FELDA GROUP LOSE? MORE LOSSES EXPECTED 2017!



23/02/2018


by e.s. shankar, Donplaypuks® intrepid correspondent for penekorek affairs



Please be clear that these accounts relate to Felda and Felda Group, which own 33.7% of Felda Global Ventures Holdings Plc (FGVH) listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. These accounts do not include the P&L or Balance Sheet figures of FGVH Plc.

Felda directly owns 20% of FGVH share capital while the balance of 13.7% is held by Felda Asset Holdings Co S/B, a wholly owned subsidiary of Felda. Felda Group is therefore the single largest shareholder of FGVH.

Felda accounts are statutorily audited by the Auditor General's Department (AG). For 2016, the AG has "qualified" the accounts by drawing attention to the continuous losses for the 4 years from 2013-2016, dangerous cash flow deficit and bank debt of RM9 billion, as follows:

Felda lost close to RM4.5 billion between 2013-2016. However, the corresponding figures for the Group are nowhere to be found in the report. We can however assume that the Group losses are bound to be higher, probably about RM5 billion.



When Najib, who has taken on Felda as his pet project, suddenly announced the appointment of Shahrir Samad in January 2017 to replace Isa Samad as Felda Chairman, he did not outline the real disaster that had taken place at Felda. It of course reflects badly on Najib as a pathetic PM, as all top appointments to Felda and FGVH were made by him, and he has, through sheer incompetency and negligence, allowed the rot to set in at many a GLC.

The situation has taken a turn for the worse with MACC investigations having commenced over fraud allegations regarding  Felda's overseas and local hotel acquisitions, Jalan Semarak land in KL and other investments.

The detailed P&L shows that Felda's profits have also been dragged down by some RM12 million losses posted in 2015 & 2016 by its hotel division. Also, the 2015 Gross Loss of $14 million at Felda is a shocker! Shahrir's stated focus on selling assets like Maybank shares suggests he is clueless how to restore core business profitability.

Felda also has a big question mark over transparency on expenses, particularly:

1. Miscellaneous services - RM70 million (2015-RM56 million)
2. Miscellaneous expenses - RM68 million (2015-RM81 million)
3. Professional services - RM60 million (2015-RM42 million)
4. JV/Investment write-offs - RM60 million (2015-RM88 million)

Of concern too should be:
1. Investment in FGVH of RM4.7 billion whose market value is worth less than half its cost as the share price has tanked from its 2012 $4.55 IPO price to about RM2 currently, and as low as RM1.50.
2. FHVH RM1.69 billion in loans.
3. Dependency on FGVH for its lend lease debt of RM4.4 billion
4. Pretty stagnant palm oil prices plus threats of a EU ban.
5. Total bank loans and borrowings of RM9 billion, which will balloon further in 2017 due to the disastrous Eagle High Plantations, Indonesia (EHP) acquisition financed by a bank loan guaranteed by MoF!

Felda Group will likely see worse losses in 2017, given also its RM2.26 billion Investment in EHP which is now only worth RM620 million, a staggering write-down of RM1.64 billion in less than a year, and suspected to be a Najib fraud. Refer my earlier blog post. CLICK HERE.

The crux of Felda's problem is of course that of a half-past six prime minister with half-past six business acumen calling the shots, aided by political Chairmen appointees with even less business or  relevant management expertise.

I have said it before and I will say it again. Najib has the touch of the plague and the kiss of death about him. Everything he touches turns to dust and destruction.

When will UMNO/BN and the Malays learn not to allow mediocrity, incompetency and fraud to flourish?

Complicated...but all road leads to Mr and Mrs Idiot.


You Are Either With Us Or You are Not : Choose!


And so it has come to this. The forces of good over the forces of evil. One the hero by common consensus, the other the villain by his deeds and intent. 
One one side Barisan Nasional led by Umno and that pathetic excuse of a leader, Najib Razak.
On the other side of the divide, a rag tag army of believers who aspire to change simply because to do nothing would invite the ruin of their country, led, almost certainly, by default, by a 91-year-old Tun whose capabilities are already a matter of record and his determination to prevail, almost legendary. 
Allow me to mention Anwar Ibrahim. His absence, because of his incarceration by BN has allowed Tun Mahathir to claim by common consensus, the leadership of the forces against Najib Razak. To his credit, Tun has willingly stepped into the breach created by Anwar's absence. My hope is that when Anwar is able and willing to lead the forces of good against Najib Razak and his cohorts, Anwar Ibrahim will do so in tandem with Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang, - and they will then proceed with the avowed aim to succeed for the greater good of all Malaysians not just for themselves!
So now we all have to take sides. You and me, the Malays in the rural areas, all those who have been the recipients of BRIM, all those who have makan dedak, all those who are Muslims, Infidels, Christians, Buddhist, God fearing and even the Atheist.....all who are Malaysians and a few others who are not........ we all have to make our choices and take sides. 
Take sides against what body of enemies, over what issues, what principles and for what purpose and in which direction we are to advance or retreat are all still unclear. 
Suffice for me to say that while Najib Razak and his cohorts are driven by greed, arrogance, and hubris, the side you and me are now on, are driven by justice for all, common good, a belief that those not as fortunate as we are must still be given their due, and a belief that all Malaysians are one and that good governance by good leaders are now long overdue. 
I hope by what I write this morning you can see with clarity what will come in the coming days....and if you can, then, you are either with us or you are not. 
You are either with Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and Anwar Ibrahim, and all those that they lead or you are not. 
You are either for the greater good for all Malaysians, for decency, for grace and respect of each other's race, culture and beliefs or you are not. 
By your choice, you will know yourself to be for good or for evil. You will know if you are for others or just for your own financial and personal gain. For the higher values that makes a man or a women more of a human being than others or for those things that greed, avarice, arrogance, and hubris makes you hunger for that demeans a human being to the levels of what Najib and Rosmah have now descended - into the cesspool of corruption and greed where the dregs of humanity are deservedly consigned to.
Think no more my friends because the time now is for deeds. What is done by Mahathir, Anwar or Najib is done. The time now is for the future and what we can do now to make that future secure, better and more welcoming of the future generations...our future generations, for do not forget that our children will be among them. 
Now I must be off to do what work I can do for this fight ahead of us. I write. What will you do my friends? What will you do?
