Young Chinese Malaysians and MCA members and their destiny in history

Me received a very serious sounding email from a young MCA member friend. Share with you…

Looking into MCA history of 60 years, I’m afraid this is the only time an attempt at reform is seriously underway. And this is happening in our lifetime…

Seems like young Chinese Malaysians and MCA members have a chance to stamp our mark in history.

Sigh…like it or not, we’re part of it. We can’t run away, and I see a vision of my descendent pondering on my life philosophy years later when I’m old and grey.

I wonder how would they react to my stand on

• Backbone bending, kow towing to big bro UMNO?
• Warlordism in the little world of MCA?

Heavens forbid they carry the shame at my lack of courage to be a part of change.

My personal wish is to see MCA discard its central delegate warlords, ‘triads’ and their leftovers, through a reform.

I guess I don’t have to like Ong Tee Keat. I don’t have to like Chua Soi Lek. I don’t have to like the likes of Liow Tiong Lai, the tearful Wee Ka Siong or Chew Mei Fun either.

I don’t relish wearing face mask or wear black + light candles (my parents hate it and frown upon it as they deem it very sueey reserved for sanctity of human funeral). Won’t get anything done, wasting time.

Should I or shouldn’t I talk to all of these MCA leaders directly? What, How, Got to think how to go about it?

Me pity this young Hamlet, he should just go ahead and question his leaders directly. Go get them and dialogue, query and query those people to heart’s content… Be the change you want to be, man!

In fact, MCA members and the chinese community who want reform should seriously look into the MCA that members want and check out the real agenda of all their leaders(and their backroom handlers) involved.

Members should go and give the players a strong message what they want these appointed ’leaders’ to do for MCA. Speak up now or remain silent forever.

P/S: Blur? Read here and here for some titillating context of MCA’s interesting makeup. Remember to use your thinking equipment wisely.

  1. I served the people of Malaysia as a education specialist for more than 30 years of my life.Every morning I have more than three thousand young people pledging their loyalty to the King and country by singing Negara Ku.
    After that I would go to the back stage and cry my heart out.I need that all the young people would be fed into the White Manded Lion’s mouth of Corruption.If they want to go anywhere in life in Sarawak they need to be highly corrupted in all their affairs.Chris Chun is a fine example of a young man who made corruption his lifestyle.He made billions of ringgit.Ting Pek Khing was ajust a Bintangor orange farmer.Tiong King Sing was just a small in and out of police station everyday hooligan.They all succeed to make ther fortune through corruption.Sibu is a town full of churches.In operation Kenyalang they caught more than 20,000 gangsters.They all stated their religion .Many of them even prayed to God when theey entered the gates of Simpang Renggam.

  2. In a bank robbery the robbers do not leave their names and NRIC.They do not sign an payment vouchers.Thus we may not know their identities.
    When the government is robbed of billions of dollars their should be names,NRIC and signed paper trails.All the government departments are glove in hand with the thieves.Otherwise they won’t release billions of ringgit without reason.Ah.White Hair has given his blessings to these thieves..

    Billions siphoned – Sarawak govt steps in
    By STEPHEN THEN

    MIRI: The Sarawak Cabinet has ordered an internal investigation into claims made by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) that up to 60% of government allocations — running into billions of ringgit — meant for vital infrastructure projects between 2002 and 2008 have been misappropriated.

    MACC investigations showed that only 40% of the money set aside by the Government were spent on the projects. The remaining 60% were said to have been “leaked elsewhere.”

    Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan Hong Nam said yesterday the state government’s internal audit department would carry out a detailed probe into the allegations.

    “The state government is investigating. We also want the MACC to give us a full and detailed briefing on these claims. We (state government) view these claims very seriously and if such abuse of government funds had taken place, we must find out who was responsible and take appropriate action against them.

    “This is government money that comes from taxpayers. If indeed funds from the Government meant for projects for the rakyat and the poor had been misappropriated, the state government wants action taken,” he said yesterday.

    He was commenting on a statement by MACC deputy commissioner Datuk Zakaria Jaffar that the MACC had uncovered cases in Sarawak where up to 60% of government allocations had been “diverted’’ away from the projects.

    Zakaria had said this in Kuching during an anti-corruption seminar a few days ago. He claimed that the misappropriation of funds took place between 2002 and last year, adding that MACC investigations showed that only 40% of the money allocated by the Government were spent on the projects.

    He, however, did not disclose what the projects were or which part of Sarawak the projects were being carried out.

    He noted that the projects involved infrastructure constructions for roads, housing schemes and mosques, among other things.

    Zakaria said MACC investigations found that many of these projects were poorly-implemented while some had not even begun despite the fact that the Government had already channelled the money for them.

    “The MACC found that there were fake claims made by officials and contractors involved in these projects,’’ Zakaria said.

    Dr Chan, who is State Industrial Development Minister and State Minister for Agriculture Modernisation, said yesterday that the state government had always been very strict with how allocations from the Federal Government are used.

    He said the Sarawak Cabinet had always been transparent with taxpayers’ money.

    “I am happy that the MACC had exposed the issue. If they are doing their job properly, we are thankful because this is for the good of the rakyat,’’ he said.

    State Housing Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Openg wants the MACC to give him more details about the housing projects said to be affected by the misappropriation of government funds.

  3. Why must MCA always use these two stupid words “争取” when they should understand that these two words are the “copyrights” of the OPPOSITION?

      • These two words simply mean “to fight for”! Now, didn’t any MCA guy understand these two simple Chinese words despite the organization itself being called MALAYSIAN CHINESE ASSOCIATION? These two words are the “copyright” of the Opposition, for it is the opposition who needs to fight for this and fight for that! If at all MCA uses this word, the implication is that “MCA IS THE OPPOSITION WITHIN THE RULING COALITION”!

      • oic… it means ‘to fight for’

        Personally, I find it a crude word and it makes my imagination go haywire – Die Hard action everywhere and then go to jail for fist fighting.

        For me, I would vote for the politician who use a more elegant and civil word like ‘to stand up for’.

        What words would you prefer/suggest that MCA should use?
