This is dedicated to those who shoulda, woulda, coulda but produced nada:

—-

Kan-kan go his blows on the sandal trees,
And he places what he hews on the river’s bank,
Whose waters flow clear and rippling.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get the produce of those three hundred farms ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the badgers hanging up in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

Kan-kan go his blows on the wood for his spokes,
And he places it by the side of the river,
Whose waters flow clear and even.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get your three millions of sheaves ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the three-year-olds hanging up in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

Kan-kan go his blows on the wood for his wheels,
And he places it by the lip of the river,
Whose waters flow clear in rippling circles.
You sow not nor reap ; –
How do you get the paddy for your three hundred round binns ?
You do not follow the chase ; –
How do we see the quails hanging in your court yards ?
O that superior man !
He would not eat the bread of idleness !

The sad, sad KPI problem of NST…

Ouch… NST needs to send its reporters + editors to deep refresher course.

Me a layman also can see no way Malaysia can have such a heart attack drop of 65.3% in tourist arrival for the first 3 months of 2010. Read its edition of 9 April, 2010 (page 2) “Malaysia among cheapest countries to visit” for some fantastic fancies

Aiyoyo…. use your commons sense lar you NST journo guys and gals…

How can Malaysians trust le mainstream newspapers if NST blindly commits silly a blunder like this against its hardworking New Economic Model 1Malaysia government? <cough, cough, ahem…>

Not one, but two factual errors in one news report! hmmmm…. makes one wonder if the newspaper has something against the one helming the second highest national income earning ministry contributing to Malaysia’s national income.

My hands are itching to give a nice present for readers who can spot the other mistake in the NST report.

My dear minister of communication and culture, Mr Rais Yatim, please could you memantau your one of your oldest mainstream newspaper to do its job properly ie simple fact check with source?

We don’t want the trustworthy cyber news to completely dominate the Malaysian information sphere now, do we, sir?

Worst along bank in Malaysiakini: Najib’s brother’s CIMB wins award

Anybody using Direct Access/Southern Bank/CIMB Bank credit card – beware of Nazir Razak’s bank!

If you are late even 1 day making payment you will be slapped with 1% penalty on total outstanding.

If eg your o/s balance is 10k, you will kena $100 max penalty.

My friend came back from holiday and was late 5 days in payment. The nice legal along bank slapped him nicely with the penalty. When he called the bank to ask if this is approved by Bank Negara, the customer service just answered that it is the Bank policy.

My friend ask me to convey this:

“Please warn your friends and family, avoid this credit cards along bank.”

.

p/s: I wonder if this is along activity is sanctioned by Bank Negara?  Najib Razak, do you know anything about this bullying activity?

Malaysiakini, are you going to help find out why CIMB hungry for the blood of their trapped credit card holders?
