Porn in public spaces is legal or not in Malaysia?

How can you blame the world for asking?

 

1. When one can organise an event to watch it?

“Anda jangan bimbang, saya akan memanggil anda selepas jam 2 petang dan memberitahu anda di mana tayangan berikutkan diadakan,” katanya memberi jaminan kepada wartawan yang menunggu di situ, sambil mengumpulkan lagi kad nama daripada mereka yang baru sampai.” read Malaysiakini here


2. When one can issue a public threat to publicly disseminate it?

“Individu yang hanya dikenali sebagai Datuk T dan menganjurkan tayangan video seks kepada media hari ini, menuntut pemimpin utama pembangkang dan isterinya berundur dari politik.” read Malaysiakini here


3. When watching porn is even done in Parliament building?

“Sex tape hits Parliament lounge” read The Malaysian Insider here

 

I wonder what do the Malaysian law enforcers think of all involved in organising these events?

Why democratic elections and political reform?

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Parliament, Politics — Tags: , , , — bananachinese @ 6:59 pm

1Malaysia wanna move on up with China? Do this….

.

There is a need to hold democratic elections according to the law; have democratic decision making, democratic management as well as democratic supervision; safeguard people’s right to know, to participate, to express and to supervise.

Political reform, including opportunities for citizens to criticise and monitor the government, is necessary to sustain economic growth. Otherwise, the country’s economic gains would be lost.

Jom! Kita beri undi pada calun

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Malaysia, Parliament, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 1:40 pm

An anonymous commentator suggested this:

JANGAN PANGKAH PARTI TAPI PANGKAH CALUN.”

A parent resolved to do this:

Why we parents are not happy? One, some of the parents have many schooling kids. If f5 one have to spend nearly $1600 on the first day of school, imagine you have 5 kids and some in colleges where they need $500/600 pmth for food and books. Perbelanjaan biasa mcm mana?

My thots? Even cikgus wants extra income. Some by giving tuition, some by enforcing extra payments from students and parents. This did not include monthly request from school on tshirts, files, seminars, classes etc. This has to stop and my resolution in the next GE is to choose candidates, not the party.”

A Member of Parliament from Barisan Nasional pleaded the same:

Amid the familiar speculation on the imminent 13th General Election, it is imperative for the voters to be more discerning on making their choice, come polling day. We should gauge and judge the candidates not merely on their party affiliation or their one-off statement made on certain issues, but instead their consistency in upholding certain virtues or values should be given top marks.”

So, will the above be harbinger of the voting trend for the Malaysian 13th General Election?

Incompetency of news outlets: Wikileaks

Filed under: Announcement, Malaysia, Media, news, Politics, Scandal — Tags: , , , , , — bananachinese @ 11:25 pm

Sad isn’t it, when news outlets or media forgot its ‘duty’ as the fourth estate?

Here’s how to stop Wikileaks or its wannabes:

“I think its time for the general public to demand that our news outlets start giving us complete stories, with various points of view.”
Thank you, b0ll0cks for your post!

Aging BN political parties don’t understand generationism

.
Longevitity in politics is admired for its resilience. However, in the world that is constantly in a state of flux, shifting from generations to generations after WWII, Baby boomers to Generation X to Generation Y and now the Generation Z, political parties which have been there since Merdeka seriously need to learn and re-learn new ways to engage with their voters.

Forget the old methods of ‘servicing’ the voters by simply playing the middlemen eg: to type support letters to help them apply for some things. Or just indulging in charity work. Or worst, interfering with the education system. That ain’t  the lawmaking and policymaking your voters put you up for.

In case, ye olde political parties haven’t noticed, your voters are now literate and can write by themselves. Don’t believe it? Just check what they say of you and your party in the internet.

Forget the antagonizing ‘criticize and hit below the belt’ method you are wont to indulge in Twitter. They are a huge turn-off to current voters who have started to develop a taste for fair play.

It is well to quickly learn how to update your communication methods to engage. Start within your own party – start by training your own members before your political party caused itself to be an embarrassment in eyes and ears of the listening public. And then, lose in the General Election.

What if a flash mob goes seriously wrong?

Here’s a fictitious piece by Tom Scott which drew up a worst case scenario that could happen when a flash mob goes wrong and really turns out to be a mob.

Even though it seems a remote scenario, its best to handle those social media with care, people.

Watch the youtube video here:

BN and PR lost. Ku Li won Galas by-election

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Malaysia, news, Parliament, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 4:37 pm

For those Malaysians easily drunk on ‘victory’, for the politically uninitiated and for those who thought they know real politiks.

Barisan Nasional component parties have looooong way to go to regain back lost gound prior 308. This is not a time to celebrate, act cocky or thumping of chests. It is not even a victory for them cybertroopers who have no inkling of political ideology in their tweet little universe.

Suffering Pakatan Rakyat and its components PKR, PAS, DAP, have a looooong way to go to reach Putrajaya.

Therefore, to all Malaysia political parties from opposite divides, please go back dutifully to the drawing board and conduct many more cadre trainings for your party members.

Don’t you dare serve us anymore under-qualified or puppet candidates in the next General Election.

The 1Malaysia test

Duh?

I wonder how many salarymen and housewives will fail this unwanted test.

P/S: Who can clarify for the individualists confused amongst the collectivists?

Extracted from The Sun’s report “Take ‘1Malaysia test’, see where you stand:PM” dated 17 Sept:

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today suggested that every Malaysian take the “1Malaysia test” when they face or are confronted with racial issues to see where they stand.

# Will my stand on certain ethnic issue impact others’ ethnicity or religion?

# Will it improve harmony or create hatred towards my race?

# Can it promote better understanding among the races and improve national unity or vice-versa?

Speech for BN political leaders: Are you brand Barisan Nasional?

“… Whether we realize it or not, we members of UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan, et al, are involved in the brand Barisan Nasional.

I hope the first thing you do when selecting your next role as a BN member is to unleash the potential of the coalition.

BN, while maybe not the sexiest name in the current political business, offered me an underrated hipness factor and the horizon to transform into something even more special than prior Merdeka.

All BN parties must consider to operate like a startup with the stability of a 59 year-old political vessel.

We must come out of the rough sea and work feverishly to repair our brand reputation in a giddying political demography.

BN is a great place for its members; BN members made the right choice in the first instance.

But how would new voters know all this? How would they become aware of what we can do to make lives even better for their future and Malaysia?

First task on hand is to overhaul the social media activities for our membership and install savvy customer relation efforts in our public conversations in either Twitter, blog or Facebook.

Okkk, now over to you, Najib Tun Razak, Chua Soi Lek, Samy Velu, Koh Tsu Koon, et al. If you still need ideas to transform this into rousing speeches for your party members, please do not be too shy to ask me.

BFM brings back the oomph to Malaysia radio (today only)

This morning is a classy morning for me brains courtesy of BFM the Big Fine Malaysian radio station heeheehee….

2nd anniversary of BFM radio saw Patrick Teoh (in fine PC restrained form) and Alan Zachariah (a voice that’s music to tired ears) on air this morning. Waiting for Datuk Yasmin Yusuf (what’s that sound?), Datuk Faridah Merican, etc to come on air later today.

Kudos to BFM for bringing people of sanity and class back to morning radio on the English radiowave even if it is for today only. The attempts of thinking listeners trying to convey their concerns to DJs were touching (Its pitiful how people suffered from confused/knotty messages from various media onslaughts/reporting/misreporting on state of the country).

Maybe BFM should do more of sessions touching on thinking politics  (not complaining only) grilled to perfection by Freda Liu with the creative Patrick Teoh as mentor sidekick – wow, delicious…..

Hope you received the hint loud and clear, Mr BFM CEO Malek?

Sigh… tomorrow its back to switching off the radio (except BFM certain segments) to protect me from the inane chatterings and soft porn lyrics mashed inside current song chart toppers.
