BR1Mful of relief but none for struggling Malaysia SME middle class

Filed under: Economy, Government, Life, Malaysia, Media — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:12 pm

Here we go again… handout time again.

Good intention, but why not the government of Barisan Nasional think about really giving a useable lifeline to those who can and able to better generate the economy so that those who always received BR1M will not be needing it anymore cos they already can fend for themselves?

Damnit… Why don’t the Najib Razak government give a fishing line to those who will fish, not just handing out them fishes whenever you like it to those marhean to shore up some political uppance over some pakatan! Come to think of it, BR1M is like a shade of UB40

Maybe Najib Razak and his cabinet of the wealthy ministers enjoying annual overseas holidays (on the rakyat’s charge) really do not know the reality on the ground.

Maybe Idris Jala too engrossed with the labs (brings to mind those poor lab rats, sacrificed for somebody’s need to play, oops, experiment). Maybe Pemandu‘s GPS is malfunctioned. One silly elite rich minister also likes study labs… (duh, you mean, you know nothing about your people’s misery until you get installed as Minister, set up labs to test them mice?)

Makes you wonder if BN has really lost it and will be lost forever…

Ain’t it more helpful and more realistic to just allow 15% early EPF withdrawal for those 45 to 49 years old. This more helpful and value added to this group who contributes most to SME middle class economic survival in hard economic times. BRIM is no use to economically aid this entrepreneurially inclined group, don’t the Najib Razak government know?

Hey PM, your economic advisors better not ignore this important group, or your political advisors will have a losing time coming GE.

Germany Deutsche Boerse NYSE

I offer you this FOC advice so that BN can kill 2 birds with one stone. Show some love to your middle class and at the same time you prove to the world that there are still funds in KWSP. That’ll will shut up your detractors.

And we rakyat will have our share of fun watching both sides working really hard for real to win our love.

BN: To rebuild, to regain or to fall into some blackhole that is the question

Filed under: Citizenry, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:15 pm

After BN’s big loss of face outcome from Malaysia’s 13th General Election, Samy Vellu declared sagely recently that it is time for BN to regain people’s trust.

Hmmm… a bit late there (somebody beat the MIC legend to it in 2010).

Makes one wonder why BN still keep them UMNO cybertroopers who helped Najib Razak to lose face big time (especially in Selangor) by repelling voters below 50s.

Listen up UMNO, MCA, MIC – you better find yourselves some quality social media engagers if you want to stay on to give a good fight in GE14. Otherwise it will be a boring GE for your fading members and our pelancong politik.

Some may ask what about Khairy Jamaludin‘s cyber team? Pooh, pooh, I say. In Twitter, FB, blogs, frankly, the MCA writer of the original rebuilding trust article seems to possess more politically solid content than his army’s.

其实是这些家伙在搞鬼

李素桦律师:“也许马华与民政党的领袖就是要迫使华社看到这样的局面而感到自责与担忧,可是,让他们吃惊的是,大部分受访的华人对这两个政党的成员人不入阁都抱无所谓的态度”。李律师与普罗大众因们在党内部直接参与的关系故以为不入阁是恐吓华社,其实不入阁是对党内元老及社团老大说的,马华与民政做不做部长对普罗大众没直接影响,但对这些元老及社团老大的生意却大有影响。而这些元老,社团老大及区会领袖常常会把某区故意弄输以换取更大的利益,因为黑区没有中央的国州议员所以这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖的权利最大,权力加上金钱咋事都好办,他们最好他们的堡垒区永远都是反对党赢,所以老蔡深知游戏规则坚持不入阁,看你们这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖还玩这套花样吗?所以火箭赢了你别以为火炬是神,其实是这些家伙在搞鬼

MCA party election 2013

Filed under: Malaysia, Politics, Scandal — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 6:41 pm

The going was terrible tough for BN’s hapless candidates from MCA in the recent GE13. And now MCA has to suffer the indignity of having a wet nurse to take care of its transport ministerial post while a ‘new’ coterie of MCA leadership gets itself sorted out in their party election.

For now, it is very interesting to discover that some MCA candidates especially in the Selangor kill zone can still increase their fan base by more than 2,000 votes (all together now…. OOOOOH)

Rawang added 2,842 new fans
Kajang added 2,795 new fans
Balakong added 3,044 new fans
Subang Jaya added 2,689 new fans

I gotta feeling that MCA’s party election’s gonna be fun, fun, fun…

社社团的棋子

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Scandal — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 6:08 pm

马华与火箭只不过是华社社团的棋子,华人社团从团体中栽培出人员送入马华与火箭的竞技场靠着社团支持力出战大选,所以假如有任何笨蛋国州议员请不要责怪马华与火箭应该怪的是我们华社社团,我们华社社团里所谓的“话事人”!他们当然不希望要个翁诗杰,胡逸山,蔡细历这些跟你讲procedure的领袖,他们最好找个江湖老大但是要听他们“进数三分清”的人去做总会长然后做国州议员,然后利用这些公会的名义谋取他们私人公司的利益,他们才不管你国家和公会的利益反正就是“社团的就是我的,我的就是我的”罗国本的爷爷不是罗氏公会的主席(罗老走后罗国本就人走茶凉)廖中莱的岳丈不是李氏公会的话事人这些菜包有何能力上位?郭鹤年要不是靠着他弟弟在马共的地位这些人真正的能力是叉烧包,讲难听点他们只不过是个团体的代理人,华社不能将任何的事情都指责马华!

Super Boring CyberTeams

Filed under: Citizenry, Media, Politics — Tags: , , , — bananachinese @ 7:20 pm

Most Malaysian politicos think social media outreach is spamming the same boring slogan, sex expose or mindless pantun-like pitch to their own followers / bloggers.

Then some made it a social media SOP, asking for a link or re-tweets to cover more miles… (how to extend to fence sitters voters, la? When their readers are within their little circle only?)

Recently, launch of recruitment of naivete volunteers on le rebranded cyberteam was done. (pat, pats on the backs, congratulated each other)

Oi, how to sell la when your own ‘established’ cybertroopers oops, cyber team are incapable to produce convincing messages to get buy-in from people who might be able to be tempted to find out more?

Most cyber troopers think that social media is all about agitatement, “who best agitate others wins”. And, then get agitated themselves when being asked hard questions.

Duh, if you’re afraid of what people are going to say, then maybe you should focus on straightening yourselves out first.

Like, do get yourselves trained by a social media specialist, ok?

I love democracy, do you?

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, news, Politics — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:23 pm

Many displays of democracy nowadays for Malaysians to learn.

How have you enjoyed the spirit and principles of democracy so far?

Here’re a simple issue for you to make into conversation or to reflect upon with your buddies. Or, if you can, throw this question to your current / aspirant Member of Parliament.

.

Q: Is this Democracy at work?

“Two anti-Bersih groups have surrounded the vicinity of Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan’s residence today…”

vs

“BERSIH 3.0 will take the form of a sit-in (“duduk bantah” in Bahasa Malaysia) on April 28th 2012, and will take place across Malaysia and throughout the world….

Through BERSIH 3.0, we will continue our struggle for clean and fair elections, assembling and expressing our views peacefully as are our rights as enshrined in the Federal Constitution…”

Who’s your social media manager cum listening specialist?

Filed under: Citizenry, Life, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 1:59 pm

Most, if not all businesses think community metrics equals revenue, ROI, brand equity.

But if you are only basing your success on retweets, influence scores and popularity then you are standing on shaky ground and bound to fall flat on your face.

If your business really want to make it in a social environment, you must

1. Be open to a mindset change

Do you have the guts to listen to what people are really saying about you and your business in the social world?

Any good social media manager or agency or consultant should have the guts and knowledge to provide you the real information, and help you set priorities and decisions for how to best embed social within the DNA of your business.

2. Get real with your team skill set and available resources

If your team doesn’t have the necessary skills to enable successful engagement, then you must either train them or figure out how you are going to obtain the necessary skills from elsewhere eg terminating employees or re-assigning them to different roles. Without the right people to do the planning, integration, execution, listening, engagement and measurement, you will be doomed to continue to struggle.

This is evident In the Malaysia political arena. Political parties’ cybertroopers or social media team would rather go about their happy retweeting, demeaning and scolding peeps whose ideals differ from theirs. It is amazing how BN (UMNO, MCA, etc) is spending much $$$ on their social media and web team to only able to produce numbers of followers, bragging about retweets and top influencers who they are engaging with.

Shockingly, the paymasters didn’t even have the gumption to realise the lack of engagement ability of their social media people.

If you are only talking to yourself all day and ignoring your target audience or leaving them out of conversation because you have no understanding of what they want to talk about or what they need, then it is highly unlikely you will ever see a solid return on that social media and expensive web team you hired.

The BN social media teams are well on their way to being nothing to nobody.

Be good to your business, it is never too late to go get yourself a top social media listener/manager today.

Why your constituents aren’t giving you their vote

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 12:59 pm

.

Why folks who voted your party in the past are not responding to you as passionately now?

For this Malaysia general election (which date may happen now or later at Mr Najib Razak’s whim/fancy/superstition), it is normal to have candidates and aspiring candidates sweating hot over this issue.

Let me venture some reasons why voters passion diverted:

1.  They didn’t receive your message.
2.  They don’t know you.
3.  Your messengers turned them off

 

Feel free to add more to this list, folks!
