Developers beware…

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Life, Malaysia, Uncategorized — bananachinese @ 10:14 pm

All strata properties residential or commercial purchasers and owners must know their basic rights…

Even mobile hand phone companies have to handover a good product to consumers. If got defects, need to do product recall or replace.

Why hor, those people who buy properties are so unwilling to stand up for their rights and suffer the irresponsible developers? Not even dare to stand up even though developer never establish proper accounts or JMB? (Joint Management Body). Aisay, you purchasers all are protected by law, so use your rights, please

It pays to know the facts on strata title, man…

Beware of Malaysia telcos’ unfair plan on mobile users

Filed under: Uncategorized — bananachinese @ 5:55 pm

Shabery Cheek the UMNO minister talked about reducing telco charges.

Yawnnnn… Nothing new nor actions anew from a BN politician.

If dear Shabery Cheek really wants a seat on the UMNO VP, dare him to haul up the telcos charging hapless customers with uncheap monthly plan or that plan bundled with phone. Tying up customers to perpetuity (2 years are a hell of a long time in new phone gadgets acquisition), barring their lines when overdue yet still continually charging every monthly plan fees. All the while customer cannot use the barred lines, no service! And the bill keeps adding up. Telcos gains, customer threatened with CTOS blacklisting. Hell. Who of your voters want to pay for non useable phone time/service?

MCMC is just shutting a blind eye to this unfair practice benefitting them telcos. Maybe waiting for Minister to give instructions to action.

So tell me, MCMC and Shabery Cheek, why the telcos are allowed to benefit from such loop sided contracts for so long? Ever heard of good faith and fair dealing?

And the KPI for MCA so far…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 2:00 pm

Ouch…. what a stinging review for MCA’s political relevance in 1Malaysia…

MCA worked harder than usual to save face for MCA President Soi Lek but they are best described as “lembab.” He maybe the MCA president but he must face up to the fact that he is not accepted by the Labis constituency and MCA supporters.

He must stop being in-denial to the reality that MCA is weak and in need of help. A weaker partner cannot rank pari passu with a more superior partner. He must put aside his ego and be willing to get assistance and take orders from the stronger partner.

BN was able to regain back a slim majority in the Chinese mix areas of Bandar Labis Timor and Labis due to the return of Malay and Indian voters. Chinese predominated area of Bandar Labis Tengah remain a significant opposition DAP stronghold.

A report claimed that Chinese support for BN is only 27 percent which is lower than the 30 something percent of the average national figure in 2008. Chinese support is not back yet.

I’m back after a long holiday…..

Hello again Malaysia!

Wishing Najib a productive meeting in China; come back and makeover

Come back with good news for Malaysians, Mr Prime Minister. Us clear headed ones are rooting for results for Malaysia.

I hope your aides have updated you about Hu Jintao’s Communist Party Of China and the quantum leap CPC made to move ahead alongside their citizens.

It is very important to keep up appearances with the times; the makeover methods deployed by the prime movers to maintain their coveted positions in the world.

May be perhaps you already know about this and are going to do the same with UMNO. If you do, please educate your brothers in Barisan Nasional component parties (MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, SAPP, SUPP, PBS, etc) to do the same too.

On governing, PKFZ is a good starting point to emphasise the makeover initiative.

Here’s something on CPC below:

“Tetapi apa yang menarik mengenai CPC ialah bukan sahaja kerana ia adalah parti politik terbesar di dunia dengan sejumlah 74 juta ahli, tetapi ia masih mampu berubah mengikut kehendak semasa, terutama di bawah pimpinan Hu Jintao.

Walaupun CPC adalah parti politik yang di kelilingi oleh pemimpin yang dianggap tidak mempunyai sikap tolak ansur terhadap pihak penentang, tetapi mereka mahu berubah mengikut kehendak rakyat mereka.

CPC yang selama ini sebuah parti yang tidak sinonim dengan demokrasi dan kebanyakan ahlinya terdiri daripada golongan tua dan lelaki, sudah mula dapat menarik minat rakyat yang lebih muda, sofistikated, berfikiran terbuka dan golongan wanita.

Di bawah era pimpinan Hu Jintao, CPC telah cuba berubah daripada sebuah parti yang berteraskan strategi yang mementingkan jumlah keahlian yang besar kepada sebuah organisasi yang lebih bersifat teknokrat.

CPC pada satu ketika dulu tidak begitu mementingkan taraf kelulusan dan kepakaran ahli asalkan mereka dapat menarik dalam jumlah yang ramai.

Tetapi CPC pada hari ini lebih mengutamakan ahli yang lebih muda, kelulusan terbaik dan mempunyai kebolehan memimpin.

Transformasi yang diolah oleh CPC ini mampu menarik sehingga 50 peratus golongan muda yang baru tamat pengajian universiti.

Tetapi apa yang paling menarik mengenai permohonan golongan ini ialah lima peratus sahaja yang diterima masuk kerana parti tersebut hanya mahu yang terbaik menjadi ahli.

Berbeza dengan satu dekad yang lepas, golongan muda langsung tidak berminat untuk menyertai CPC.

Tidak terlintas juga satu dekad yang lepas CPC akan memberi keutamaan terhadap pendapat dan perasaan rakyat China tetapi pada hari ini tinjauan pendapat sering dilaksanakan untuk menyelami perasaan masyarakat mereka.

Walaupun masih terdapat kawalan terhadap saluran maklumat melalui internet, tetapi jelas bahawa ruang untuk mencabar status quo telah dilonggarkan.

Bagaimana CPC menangani kes pencemaran susu bayi pada tahun lepas, jelas mempamerkan perubahan sikap CPC yang pada hari ini lebih mementingkan perasaan dan pendapat rakyat China secara keseluruhannya.

Satu perkara yang menarik mengenai anjakan paradigma CPC ialah pemimpin mereka tidak lagi menggunakan slogan komunis untuk mendapat sokongan rakyat.

Mungkin slogan tersebut masih laku dua dekad yang lepas, tetapi semenjak peristiwa berdarah Dataran Tiananmen, CPC telah memulakan langkah untuk memberi gambaran bahawa ahli parti mereka adalah daripada golongan intelek dan teknokrat.

Jika CPC sebagai sebuah parti politik yang sinonim dengan cengkaman fahaman Marxis selama lebih daripada sembilan dekad mampu berubah kepada sebuah organisasi yang intelek dan teknokrat sehingga menarik minat golongan muda yang lebih pintar dan bersikap terbuka, sudah pasti parti politik lain yang jauh lebih muda dapat melakukan perubahan dengan lebih mudah.

Apa yang penting adalah sesebuah parti politik itu mesti mengutamakan perasaan dan kehendak rakyat dan tidak hanya memberi keutamaan kepada kehendak ahli parti itu sahaja.

Hindraf, Bersih, demonstrations: Why this now?

Been too busy lately.

But I must share with you this comment received from Fairuz. I feel what Fairuz felt too. Sometimes, I feel different. Sometimes, I feel cheated. Sometimes, I feel vindicated. Sometimes, I feel angry. Sometimes, I feel nothing. Sometimes I don’t want to read Malaysiakini. Sometimes I avoid reading any mainstream newspapers.

People, how can we open our hearts and minds? How can we give all brothers/sisters a helping hand? How can we heal and move on?

“How many of you here really know about 13′th May 1969? How much do you all know the meaning of apartheid? How long you want peace in Malaysia? How do you feel as a Malaysian? Have you ever thinking the result from that incident? Do you know who behind it? Don’t just talk emotionally. Think wisely. I don’t ever want “13′th May 1969″ happen again. Why don’t you all do some reading about how Malaysia get “Merdeka”. How much blood were spill. How many people die. Don’t make this thing bigger. No one will get advantages if “13′th May 1969″ happen again. There will more pain in your heart. We all live in Malaysia. This is our land. Protect it. Love it. For 50 years we can live peacefully with each other. Why this now?

In my opinion…there some people want to make all Malaysian fighting each other. Riot won’t solve any problems. Its only will cost you more than you can imagine.”

Indeed, Fairuz.

Why this now?

Something must be wrong somewhere making our people unthinking and unknowing and so emotional. Any suggestions how this wrong can be unwronged?
