Copy & Paste : 10 Things I want BA to do

And now the next one.

10 things I want Pakatan to do

Here are 10 things that I would like Pakatan to do (note : the first and last two items are similar to the BN list)

1.Listen to the rakyat
You guys are also not very different from the BN fellows in terms of listening to the rakyat. People want their voices to be heard. People want to be consulted. Regardless whether you agree with them or not, you should listen to what the people have got to say. Rakyat means everyone, not only your supporters. Dengar la sikit… bukan susah sangat. For every major programme, policy or project that you embark upon, engage the rakyat and get feedback. And engage them seriously. I have seen some progress in Selangor and Penang but tak cukup la… Do some more. State laws can be amended to make public consultation mandatory for major policies, programmes and projects. PLEASE LISTEN.

2.Encourage opposing views
Just because people don’t agree with you does not mean that they hate you. The internet has already neutralised the control of information. Don’t repeat what the BN fellows are doing. Allow dissenting views. In fact, you should go further by encouraging dissenting views. Encourage forums and debates in the 4 states that you are governing now. In Kelantan for example, despite over 20 years of PAS rule, I have yet to see any progress made in this respect. You always blame the BN for stifling people’s views but you are actually not very different. ENCOURAGE DISSENTING VIEWS.

3.Succession plan
Who after Anwar? The BN, despite their flaws, has some sort of succession plan in place. You guys don’t. Habuk pun tarak. Don’t tell me Anwar will live forever. Without a succession plan, Pakatan is not very bankable. The last thing people want, after supporting you guys, is to see Pakatan crumble because of in-fighting for leadership. Please tell the rakyat who is second in line. All I can see is that the talent pool within Pakatan is pretty small. And can someone also tell me who will eventually succeed Guan Eng ? Will he also live forever ?. START GROOMING SUCCESSORS.

4.Agree on common positions on important issues
Very often, PKR, DAP and PAS have not be able to present a common stand on important issues. Minor issues, never mind la. But on key issues, please sit together and agree on a common position. When DAP says one thing and PAS says something completely opposite, it only gives the impression that you fellows cannot get your act together. You have been squabbling in the open on everything from MTV concerts to chicken shit. Next time try to quarrel in private. ADOPT COMMON STANDS ON KEY ISSUES.

5.Cut the double speak
Double speak seems to be the trademark of many politicians, particularly those from Pakatan. For example, you fellows have the habit of asking BN old-timers (e.g. Dr M, Taib Mohamed) to retire, saying they have been in power for too long, lah… But the irony of this is that the Pakatan old-timers LKS, Karpal, Hadi, Nik Aziz have been around since the time of the diplodocous and spinosaurus. Be consistent la. If you think your dinosaurs can still contribute, then you cannot use that argument against the dinosaurs in BN. Similarly, your comments about the judiciary have been comical. For example during the Perak MB crisis, whenever the courts ruled in your favour, you will scream “justice has prevailed”. When the courts ruled against you, you whined “judiciary is corrupt”. Hello geng… consistent la sikit. CUT OUT THE DOUBLE SPEAK.

6.Focus your efforts on governing SG, PG, KD & KN
I want you to focus on governing Selangor, Penang, Kedah and Kelantan. Forget about Putrajaya for the time being. Gain experience running a state, especially those with sophisticated economies like Selangor and Penang. The rakyat are not stupid – they know. If you can govern the 4 states well, you will eventually win the other states with ease. You cannot use the argument that PAS has already been governing Kelantan for more than 20 years and hence has all the necessary experience. Kelantan has a primitive economy and has been in the doldrums for the past 50 years. Kedah’s economy is nothing to shout about. To me, Pakatan (especially Anwar) seems obsessively obsessed with taking over Putrajaya. What’s the hurry ? Is this the only way of getting Anwar out of his legal troubles? I would be very concerned if you take over Putrajaya now. You simply do not have the experience and there is too much squabbling among PKR, DAP and PAS. Steady does it. Focus on the states at hand. Putrajaya will automatically come to you when the rakyat are convinced of your capabilities. FOCUS ON THE JOB AT HAND.

7.Improve party governance
Wash your backside first before criticizing others. Ensure that democracy and good governance are fully practised within PKR, DAP and PAS. PKR’s last party election was one big dirty joke. Complete disaster. If you cannot even ensure good governance for your own party election, can we expect anything better when you run the country? Anwar’s position as his party supremo is a joke – an unelected fellow pulling all the strings ? Is this how you going to run the country ? The basic requirements for all politicians. Stand for elections and win (including in your own party elections). IMPROVE PARTY GOVERNANCE

8.Don’t be a sour puss
Don’t oppose everything the BN just for the sake of opposing and don’t find fault in everything BN does. In this respect, the BN fellows are better than you – they spend less time criticising and finding fault in you. So far I have not seen much evidence that you guys are smarter than the buggers in BN. You need to set the example. Otherwise, when you are in power, the BN fellows will do the same things and there will be no end to this partisan circus. Rakyat will suffer. I hope some of you will stand up and support the good initiatives by BN. Your job is to serve the rakyat – not to bring down the other side. It really makes me sick that you go out of your way to make BN look bad. Where there is merit, support lah. GIVE CREDIT WHEN AND WHERE IT IS DUE.

9.Bridge in gender gap in politics
You are just as bad as BN when it comes to gender balance. And don’t give me the crap that the President of PKR is a woman because in reality she is only a puppet which is very insulting to women. PAS is of course worst of the lot when it comes to women’s representation in politics. There are so many competent women out there, can’t you see that. Hello bro… this is 2011 not 1911. I want to see women forming at least 30% of Pakatan candidates at the next GE. How much progress have women made in Kelantan politics over the last 20 years of PAS rule? Kosong. Telor mata kerbau. EMPOWER WOMEN.

10.Put up intelligent candidates
Last GE, you guys put up many cows, goats and frogs as candidates. While the frogs have jumped sides, the cows and goats are still hanging around. For goodness sake, put up intelligent people as candidates for the next GE. While you may be forgiven for putting up morons last GE, this time around, you have had the benefit of time. There should be no excuses for putting up anymore morons, numbskulls and birdbrains. (Hint : you put up that Lingam camera man and he won. Where is he now? Hilang terus. Allowance buta). I am sure you have realised that the rakyat (at least those with common sense) will eventually vote for the candidate rather than the party. Find smart people as difficult as it may be. PUT UP CANDIDATES WITH BRAINS

These are only 10 out of the zillion things that Pakatan should do. Many of the 10 things I stated for BN are also valid for Pakatan. There are so many other things that I want write but these will have to wait for another time.

I hope you fellows in Pakatan will also loosen up a bit… you seem more sensitive to criticism than the people in BN. Chill, bro. Just because you are opposition does not mean you are an angel.

**You can read the originals here. Thank you Monyet King!

Copy & Paste : 10 Things I want BN to do

Few months ago, I wrote about Monyet King and his complaints about PSN in his blog. You can read it here. after I met him, I've been his blog reader ever since. His ideas and how he sees thing, is extra-ordinary. This is what I copied from him of which I'm sharing the same view.

10 things I want Barisan Nasional to do

1.Listen to the rakyat
Despite the serious losses in the last general election, it seems to me that the BN is still oblivious to sentiments on the ground. I am not sure whether BN really doesn’t know or it simply does not care. People want their voices to be heard. People want to be consulted. Regardless whether you agree with them or not, as the government, you are duty-bound to listen to the rakyat. Just listen, la… it is not so difficult. For many (not all) programmes or projects that the government does, there is little or no public consultation. The public is always left in the dark. The notion of engaging the public also seems alien to our civil service. I am not saying that there is no public engagement. I am saying that we need to do a lot more. Our laws need to be amended to make public consultation mandatory for major policies, programmes and projects. Listen to all sides. Get feedback even though it takes time. LISTEN.

2.Encourage opposing views
BN messed big time leading to and after the BERSIH rally. Even people who don’t support BERSIH or the opposition are annoyed with the heavy-handed crack down on the rally. Freedom of expression is fundamental to a healthy democracy. The internet has already neutralised the government’s monopoly on information dissemination. The government actually looks stupid trying curb dissenting views. People are already doing it online. The blogsphere, facebook and twitter are flush with discussions on every topic on the planet. All you have to do is give them the physical space to do so. Give opportunities and platform for people to speak, to say their piece, to shout until they go hoarse. Tak susah, bro. Don’t worry, hell won’t break loose, there won’t be racial riots, there won’t be violence. You have to trust the rakyat. If you can’t trust the rakyat, then you got no business being the government. [BTW, when having dialogues or talk shows on TV, invite lah some people with opposing views. Don’t lah syok sendiri by only inviting people who support the government]. ALLOW OPPOSING VIEWS.

3.Liberalise mainstream media
Many of the mainstream newspapers and TV stations make BN look silly by blatantly reporting one-sided views. Many people have simply stopped reading mainstream newspapers. The NST is a classic case. At one time, its circulation was the same as the STAR. Now it is only one fourth that of the STAR which is seen as more (only slightly) credible. RTM1, RTM2 and TV3 are so blatantly one-sided that it sometimes makes me want to puke watching them. How does BN expect to reach out to the other side via mainstream TV channels when no one from the other side is even watching them? Basically you are only talking to your hard-core supporters. This is not the 1960’s la, bro… people are intelligent enough to differentiate crap from news. Allow the mainstream media more freedom. LIBERALISE

4.Do more to wipe out corruption
A lot more has to be done to wipe out corruption. There have been some good initiatives over the past 3 years but more is needed. The award of government tenders and privatization projects must be made more transparent. This must apply not only to federal government projects but also those of the state governments and local councils. National leaders have to lead by example. Strengthen MACC. But MACC itself needs to do more to improve its image especially after the Teoh Beng Hock and Ahmad Sarbani cases. It does not matter whether it is the big fish or small fish, big sotong or small sotong, catch them all. STAMP OUT CORRUPTION

5.Sabah and Sarawak
It is obvious to anyone with half–a–brain that, despite having backed BN for decades, Sabah and Sarawak have been neglected - not only in terms of economic development but also in the formulation of national policies and programmes. Many (not all) Federal civil servants very often forget that Sabah and Sarawak exist. The cost of living in Sabah and Sarawak is much higher than that in Peninsular Malaysia, the incidences of poverty higher and the quality of infrastructure much poorer. A lot, lot, lot more needs to be done for these two states to do justice to the partnership forged in 1963. Build the capacity of Sabahans and Sarawakians to manage their state effectively. Invest a lot more in education and health. The distribution of government revenue has to be seriously reviewed so that the distribution is fairer and folks at the state are empowered to manage their own resources. BE FAIR TO SABAH AND SARAWAK

6.Orang Asli
The Orang Asli have had an even worse deal than Sabah and Sarawak. The incidence of poverty is extremely high amongst the Orang Asli and their life expectancy is some 10 years lower than the average Malaysian. My verdict. The Jabatan Hal Ehwal Orang Asli has simply failed the community. The Orang Aslis remain very marginalised. Their land and their customs are not respected. Many states simply refuse to recognize their rights on land. BN has to recognize that these original inhabitants of this land deserve far better – they are special, their unique lifestyles and land must be recognized and the civil service must be sensitized to this. RESPECT THE ORANG ASLI

7.Strengthen schools and universities
Education is the bedrock of a developed society. I strongly support a one-school system – provided the national schools can deliver a high quality education. We need to get the best teachers (regardless of ethnicity or nationality) to teach our children. Let’s acknowledge it. The teaching profession is no different from the civil service. While there are many good teachers, there are also many dumb-ass ones in our national schools. (ohh… and stop the religious creeps from changing the face of our national schools)

Our universities are nothing to shout about. We need good lecturers. Get them regardless of who they are or where they come from. Given that the bulk of students in our local universities are Bumiputeras, getting the best lecturers from all corners of the globe will benefit them. Recruitment of lecturers must be solely based on meritocracy. I have no problems with having quotas for bumiputra students at local universities but I am totally against affirmative policies when it comes to recruiting academic staff. RECRUIT THE BEST TEACHERS. Period.

8.Attract talent
The Government has to attract talent from all over the world. I know Talent Corp has been formed but I don’t know how effective it has been. Over the years, the Government has had no qualms attracting hundreds of thousands of unskilled or low-skilled workers to work in our plantation and restaurants – yet has made it difficult for highly talented professionals from working here. This is STUPID. We need to attract highly skilled people to live and work in Malaysia. This is no doubt a difficult challenge. Smart and highly skilled people generally can choose where they want to live and work. Expecting them to accept shit as usual will not work. If we want talent, we need to change the conditions. It goes beyond offering high salaries. The working and living environment needs to be conducive. [The Government’s reaction to the BERSIH rally is a classic way how to turn away smart people from choosing to live in Malaysia]. ATTRACT SMART PEOPLE.

9.Bridge in gender gap in politics
When the PM announced the 30% quota for the women in the board of private companies two weeks ago, I laughed my ass off. Why ? Because the cabinet itself has only two women ministers (2 out of 28 which is only 7%). Before asking others to rectify the gender imbalance, the BN should first correct the male – female ratio amongst its elected representatives. For the next elections, I hope that women will form at least 30% of the candidates from both sides. The current BN structure basically prohibits any women from becoming the PM (since the PM will normally be chosen from the males members of UMNO). Bro, you need to lead by example. The next Cabinet, if you are still in power, should have at least 10 women ministers. [another advantage : the incidence of corruption among women is very very much lower than that among men]. EMPOWER WOMEN

10.Get rid of the tainted and the incompetent
BN has the habit of retaining politicians who repeatedly bungle or make fools of themselves or do silly things. (Bung Mokhtar is a good example – a fellow who repeatedly makes sexist remarks yet is retained and worse, given a position in the Backbenchers Club). There have been so many other incidences. The politicians who repeatedly screw up should not be nominated for the next GE. The inclusion of politicians perceived by many to be tainted (e.g. Rahim Thamby Chik, Khir Toyo) is only going to reinforce the perception that the BN is not serious about integrity. The reptilic dinosaur went extinct 65 million years ago. We need to ensure that the human version disappears as well. DOWN WITH THE MORONS.

These are only 10 out of the hundreds of things that I would like the BN to do. If I start listing everything, this blog will run out of memory. I also recognize that these 10 things are based on my perceptions and world views, based on my upbringing and my lifestyle – another person would have a totally different expectation of these things. There are so many other things that I want write (ISA, OSA, USA, Suhakam, EC, ETP, GTP, …) but these will have to wait for another time.

BN, having been the ruling party for the past five decades, has obviously done plenty of good things. The nation has made major leaps in economic development, infrastructure, health and education. Malaysia is actually the envy of many other nations. The “funny” collaboration among UMNO, MCA, MIC and other BN components parties has served the nation rather well in the formative years after Independence. We have come a long way since Independence - our progress can easily put many other countries to shame. There have been many brilliant politicians from BN to have worked very hard to help Malaysia grow. Tabik hormat.

Detractors will say that we could have done much better. But then, all of us as individuals could also have done better. Every nation could have done better. This is called the benefit of hindsight.

Teranung Nelang!!

Mesti para pembaca berkata..hapdet jugak blog ni akhirnya..hehehe..jangan marah ye! Salahkan tariff elektrik yang naik baru-baru ni..aku hanya kurangkan online untuk (kononnya) menjimatkan penggunaan elektrik..hehe

Definisi: Nelang dalam bahasa dialek Terengganu berarti tidak gentar atau dalam bahasa Inggerisnya 'daredevil'.

Semalam merupakan hari yang paling mengujakan untuk aku dalam tahun 2011 ini. Kerana apa??
Yes!! Semalam Terengganu berjaya memenangi piala FA selepas menumpaskan negeri jiran, Kelantan dengan keputusan 2-1. Perlawanan Final yang terhebat pernah aku saksikan melibatkan negeri tumpah darah aku ini dan juga perlawanan pertama dalam sejarah bolasepak Malaysia, Terengganu bertemu dengan Kelantan di final.

Kebiasaannya apabila Terengganu atau Kelantan bertemu mana-mana pasukan lain, maka penyokong masing-masing akan sentiasa sokong menyokong antara satu sama lain. Tapi, jika Terengganu bertemu Kelantan, lain ceritanya pulak.

Semalam, aku melihat kematangan penyokong kedua-dua pasukan ini di mana penyokong Kelantan mengucapkan tahniah kepada penyokong Terengganu dan menerima hakikat kekalahan mereka semalam. Respek kepada kedua-dua penyokong...kecuali 'part' korang baling mercun yang sebenarnya tak perlu tu. Hehehe..

Terengganu juga merupakan juara SUKMA untuk kali ketiga berturut-turut.

Jika tiada sifat 'nelang' di dalam atlet Terengganu masakan kami boleh berjaya sebegini...

Ipod Touch

Last year I bought a brand new Ipod Touch and it comes with Face Time and all the new features..

But recently, the Ipod died after I pulled off the charger cable and stays dead for about a week. I began to panic.

After spending few hours in the net on how to solve my problem, i finally found a solution and I'm gonna share it with all readers.

If your Ipod died suddenly, press the power button and home button at the same time about 10 seconds or until Apple logo appears at the screen. After the ipod restart, plugged it into Itunes to restores data that might missing in your Ipod ( if you had the data backuped)

So peeps, you can try it and it works on Iphone too...good luck


I'm not quite a big fan of American Superheroes because they are too strong, illogical, Godlike powers and don't die...but their movie are still fun to watch..

So, this evening I will go and watch a new American Superheroes movie, Thor. In Norse polytheism, Thor (from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, destruction, fertility, healing, and the protection of mankind (please read Wikipedia for more info).
But, if Thor's hammer exist..i would like to borrow it for a while and I will smite those idiots who think the people are also an idiots like them..

Ex-Weatherman said : I have a friend..his name is Matori..we called him Thor..and he has lots of hammer in his house..don't you think the same thing??

(UPDATE: After watching Thor, I would say the movie is not bad at all..I give 4 out of 5 stars)

Nak Masuk..???

Baru-baru ni aku dengar ada orang yang hampir-hampir dapat gelaran Dato' telah submit borang nak join UMNO.

Ingin tegakkan keadilan katanya.

Dasar perjuangan yang didukung oleh parti tersebut juga serasi dengan beliau.

Kah kah kah....

Just for laugh

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.

You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?

I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.

If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)

2) Which age group should I target?

3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I've met a few girls who don't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.

4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan:

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.

My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope

everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.

From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.

However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position".

If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased".

Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in "leasing" services, do contact me.

A Wedding To Remember

If you want to see the true spirit of 1Malaysia, I must say that you should look at the Sabahan people. In Sabah, there are hundreds of ethnic living together in one state with Kadazan-Dusun, Murut and Bajau are the main ethnic and differences in ethnicity is never being an issue (but they really hate PATI ). It is a pity that kind of spirit is hard to find in the Peninsular ..sigh....

Being married to a Sabahan girl makes me a different person. She is just a normal Dusun girl but she has a lot of friends that come from different type of ethnic and religion.

Today, one of her friend is getting married. The girl, Clare (my wife's friend) is a Kadazan-Dusun and her other half, Aaron is a Chindian (Chinese+Indian) from Kuala Lumpur. They held a reception dinner at the Royal Selangor Club and we are invited.

The guests are selected from close relatives, families and friends. There are only about 100 person invited and I feel honored to be among them.

The food is okay but we didn't come for the foods. Its the bond between old friends that makes the night meaningful.
The couple then take the floors to dance. After that, a few people including us also joining the couple. Me and my wife were given a big applause for being such a sporting because I am the only Malay and she is the only one wearing tudung.

I am so happy because I saw a glimpse of hope for Malaysian to live together without any barrier between them. Thank you Clare and Aaron for the great night. Congratulations!! Till death do both of you apart..

P/S : I want my daughter's wedding to be filled with diversity of people, races, religion etc etc..although it will only happen at least in the next 20 years..

I'm sorry if my English is bad..its 3.30 a.m, gua mengantuk daaa....

A meeting with Monyet King

Two months ago, this comment (read here) has made the management of PSN held their breath and imagining a miserable future while the staffs feeling disgust with what they read. This article also making the blood of somebody at the top boils because there is another somebody's name mentioned. It was all caused by a Monyet (monkey)...but this monkey is known as Monyet King and this king of the monkey is an educated one too..

Anyway, I don't give a damn at the first place. I know there are problems everywhere in Gov Agencies including us. So, we just need to strategies and improve, thats all. Its the basic equation. But, sadly there are still people in Malaysia who still don't know what equation means..

To make the story short, because I am the one so called a Deep-low-matic Officer, so I was given an order to meet this Monyet King and ask him for some ideas and how things can be improved. must thinking what I'm thinking at that time.

"Asking a monkey for ideas?? Are you nuts ?? Is the world are about to end??"

But as a Deep-low-matic Officer, we have been install this program in our head and its called "Kami yang menurut perintah.exe"

Last week I contacted him and we arranged to meet a week later.

Today, me and my colleague had lunch with him and like what he said, we have a productive hour discussing things about turns out that Monyet King is a nice guy and although he is older than me but he is still a handsome guy (just second to me) , healthy and always in focus.

Of course talking about PSN is such a boring subject. We also talked about his future trip to Everest and his experience about his environmental works. His knowledge about Nobel Prize winner is also amazing and he told us that he met 2 Nobel Prize winners that he regards it as one of the best moment of his life. So, he is a smart monkey indeed...hehehe

I was actually about to pay for the lunch for his time spent with us but as a monkey, his reflex is faster and he quickly put his platinum card to the platter. So thank you for the food and drinks. It was delicious. To our surprise, the lunch bill won a lucky draw at the restaurant. I put it as a good sign for both sides.

He promised to wrote something in his blog tonight. And you can read it here. And he also mentioned my name 3 times..hehe

Well, Dr. G Balamurugan aka Monyet King.. it is a pleasure to meet you..

Ni aku cut n paste dari sebuah forum..just for knowledge sharing....

Ramai yang masih kabur dan tidak faham hak mereka sebagai rakyat Malaysia. Perlembagaan Persekutuan adalah undang-undang tertinggi Negara. Perlembagaan Persekutuan menjamin hak setiap rakyat Malaysia tanpa mengira agam, kaum, bangsa dan juga fahaman politik. Semua warganegara dijamin hak yang sama.

Salah satu hak yang dijamin oleh Perlembagaan Persekutuan ialah hak rakyat terhadap harta. Ini disebut dalam Perkara 13 Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Perkara 13 Perlembagaan Persekutuan

Hak terhadap harta.

(a) Tiada seseorang pun boleh dilucutkan hartanya kecuali mengikut undang-undang.

(b) Tiada sesuatu undang-undang pun boleh membuat peruntukan bagi mengambil atau menggunakan harta-harta dengan paksa dengan tiada pampasan yang mencukupi.

Selalunya Perkara 13 ini digunakan di dalam kes pengambilan tanah melalui Akta Pengambilan Tanah 1960. Sebenarnya Perkara 13 ini bukan sahaja melibatkan harta tak alih seperti tanah, tetapi meliputi harta alih seperti kenderaan. Justeru penafian hak memperbaharui cukai jalan dan lesen memandu oleh Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) juga sebenarnya termasuk di dalam penafian hak rakyat terhadap harta. Alasannya jika seseorang rakyat itu dihalang dari memperbaharui cukai jalan kenderaan mereka yang menyebabkan kenderaan itu tidak boleh digunakan maka rakyat itu telah dinafikan haknya terhadap harta.

Jika seseorang rakyat telah dinafikan hak mereka menggunakan harta (kenderaan) mereka tanpa alasan yang berlandaskan peraturan dan undang-undang maka Perkara 13 (b) menyatakan bahawa pampasan hendaklah diberikan. Ini bermaksud jika JPJ menghalang seseorang memperbaharui cukai jalan yang menyebabkan kenderaan tidak boleh digunakan, maka JPJ hendaklah membayar pampasan kepada pemilik kenderaan tersebut.

Hujah ini adalah bersandarkan keputusan kes Leonard Lim Yaw Chiang lwn Director of Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Negeri Sarawak yang telah diputuskan pada tahun 2009. Di dalam kes ini, seorang rakyat bernama Leonard Lim Yaw Chiang telah disenarai hitam dan dihalang oleh JPJ Sarawak dari memperbaharui cukai jalan kereta beliau. Beliau telah memohon kepada Mahkamah Tinggi Kuching untuk memutuskan bahawa tindakan JPJ menyenarai hitam dan menghalang beliau memperbaharui cukai jalan adalah salah. Beliau juga memohon gantirugi daripada JPJ di atas kehilangan penggunaan kereta beliau selama kereta tersebut tidak boleh digunakan kerana tiada cukai jalan.

Mahkamah telah memutuskan bahawa JPJ tidak boleh menyenarai hitam kenderaan di atas suatu kesalahan yang belum dibuktikan di Mahkamah. Tindakan JPJ menyenarai hitam diputuskan telah bertentangan dengan Perkara 13 Perlembagaan. JPJ juga telah diarahkan membayar gantirugi kepada pemohon dalam kes itu kerana kesusahan beliau tidak dapat menggunakan kenderaan sehingga terpaksa menyewa kenderaan lain.

Justeru di sini ingin dimaklumkan kepada pemandu-pemandu dan pemilik-pemilik kenderaan yang dinafikan hak mereka memperbaharui cukai jalan dan lesen memandu, bahawa hak anda dilindungi oleh Perlembagaan. Pihak berkuasa tidak boleh sewenang-wenang menafikan hak anda.

Berbalik kepada tawaran Kerajaan memberikan diskaun pembayaran saman sehingga hari ini 28/2/2011. Ingin dimaklumkan bahawa tindakan ini tetap salah. Isu utamanya ialah bukan jumlah bayaran kompaun atau denda itu RM300 atau RM150 atau pun RM50. Isu utamanya adalah, ADAKAH SESEORANG ITU BENAR-BENAR MELAKUKAN KESALAHAN YANG DIDAKWA SEHINGGA MEREKA WAJIB MEMBAYAR DENDA?

Perlu diambil perhatian bahawa untuk menguatkuasakan sesuatu peraturan dan undang-undang, sesebuah pihak berkuasa hendaklah juga mengikut peraturan dan undang-undang. Saman tidak boleh tertunggak. Jika ada yang tertunggak maka ianya bukan saman. Saman hendaklah dikemukakan di Mahkamah. Orang yang disaman (OKS) hendaklah diserahkan saman dan diperintahkan hadir ke Mahkamah untuk menjawap saman itu. Jika OKS mengaku salah maka mahkamah akan memerintahkan OKS itu membayar denda. Jika denda dibayar maka saman itu selesai dan tidak akan tertunggak. Jika saman diserahkan kepada OKS tetapi OKS tidak hadir ke Mahkamah, maka mahkamah akan keluarkan waran tangkap suapaya OKS hadir mahkamah. Maka proses yang sama akan berlaku iaitu OKS akan ditanya mangakui kesalahan atau meminta bicara. Jika mengaku maka akan diarahkan supaya bayar denda bagi saman itu. Maka selesailah saman itu. Tidak tertunggak. Jika tidak mengaku maka akan dibicarakan. Bergantung kepada keputusan mahkamah, jika didapati salah selepas bicara, maka akan diperintahkan untuk bayar denda. Selesai lah saman itu. Jika tidak bersalah maka luput juga samann itu. Tidak tertunggak.

Soalannya kenapa ada saman tertunggak? Jawapannya pertama kerana saman-saman itu tidak pernah dibawa ke Mahkamah. Kedua kerana yang dikatakan saman itu sebenarnya bukan saman tetapi notis sahaja.

Saman Ekor yang dikatakan saman ini sebenarnya bukan saman tetapi sekadar notis kepada pemilik kenderaan meminta maklumat pemandu yang dikatakan memandu melebihi hadlaju. Notis ini juga disertakan tawaran kompaun jika pemilik kenderaan mengaku melakukan kesalahan. Ia dikeluarkan di bawah Seksyen 115 Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987 atau dikenalai dengan Notis Pol 170A. Jika pemilik tidak mengaku kesalahan maka kompaun tidak perlu dibayar kerana kompaun itu hanyalah tawaran. Jika pemilik tidak membayar kompaun sepatutnya pemilik disaman supaya hadir ke Mahkamah bagi menjawap tuduhan memandu melebihi hadlaju. Kemudian proses mahkamah yang dijelaskan sebelum ini akan berlaku. Maka saman itu akan selesai dan tidak tertunggak. Masalah timbul apabila pihak berkuasa terus menghukum pemilik supaya membayar kompaun sedangkan kesalahan tidak dibuktikan. Kompaun bukan denda tetapi tawaran. Dendan hanya boleh dikeluarkan dan diarahkan oleh Mahkamah. Bukan Polis dan bukan JPJ. Inilah penyalahgunaan kuasa dan peraturan oleh pihak berkuasa. Mereka bertindak melebihi kuasa yang diberikan. Mereka bertindak sebagai penghukum sedangkan tugas itu hanya ada pada Mahkamah.

Justeru kepada semua rakyat Malaysia, ketahui hak anda, jangan mudah terpedaya dengan tawaran dan penindasan. Gunakan hak anda... TIADA SIAPA BOLEH MEMAKSA ANDA MEMBAYAR SESUATU YANG ANDA TIDAK LAKUKAN. Anda Mampu Mengubahnya.

Bagaimana JPJ boleh menhalang pembaharuan cukai jalan?

1) Seksyen 17(1)(d) Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987 (Pindaan) 2010

JPJ berkuasa menghalang seseorang melakukan apa-apa transaksi termasuk perbaharui cukai jalan tetapi setelah JPJ BERPUASHATI bahawa seseorang ada perkara yang belum selesai dengan JPJ dan Polis.

Bagaimana JPJ hendak BERPUASHATI?

2) Seksyen 17(2) Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987 (Pindaan) 2010

JPJ hendaklah memberikan peluang kepada seseorang membuat representasi. Ini bermaksud JPJ hendaklah menjalankan siasatan adakah seseorang itu ada perkara yang belum selesai. Maka semua pihak perlu hadir iaitu pemilik kenderaan, JPJ dan Polis yang mengeluarkan saman. Perlu disiasat adakah saman yang dikatakan ada kepada seseorang itu betul atau tidak. Sudah dibuktikan di mahakamh atau tidak. Jika tidak maka JPJ tidak boleh menyenarai hitam. Inilah maksud BERPUASHATI

3) Seksyen 17(5) Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987 (Pindaan) 2010

Jika dihalang daripada perbaharui cukai jalan maka Pengarah JPJ hendaklah maklumkan kepada Ketua Pengarah pengangkutan, di mana Ketua Pengarah hendaklah maklumkan secara bertulis dalam tempoh 14 hari kepada pemilik kenderaan tentang alasan halangan dibuat ke atas pemilik. Adakah notis ini pernah dikeluarkan kepada pemilik?

Jika anda dihalang daripada perbaharui cukai jalan tanpa alasan yang sah anda boleh:

a) Minta alasan bertulis daripada JPJ kenapa anda dihalang.

b) Minta JPJ perbaharui cukai jalan dengan segera jika alasan bertulis itu tidak munasabah dan tidak betul.

c) Jika JPJ enggan mematuhi permintaan anda, anda boleh menyaman/menuntut di Mahkamah untuk gantirugi kehilangan penggunaan kenderaan anda dan kesusahan anda kerana tidak boleh menggunakan kenderaan.

In photography, bokeh (Japanese pronunciation: [boke]) is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur,in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focustechnique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights; blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.
