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!

马华: 打了小的看到老

十五元老催蔡辞职,哈!哈!打了小的看到老,百年道行终露尾,元老才是马华之弱因。铲除劳工党,追击人民党,迫退共产党,败退老英GLC,横跨马华民政,手握巫统,MIC。火箭, 公正幕后大英雄。黑白两道一手握,政,经,文,教归我管。年近百,身家亿。不知足,何苦来。老蔡,老翁捅马蜂窝。大选是热身,这趟才是马华救命争。

哈哈,有人偷了别人的脚车才发觉自己的宾士不见了

GE13 Malaysia – Don’t sulk just go independent

Malaysians were entertained with some comic relief from those who were not picked by their BN or Pakatan Rakyat political parties as calon for GE13.

Some Malaysians were turned off by these dropped aspirants who brought their little coterie of friends to protest against their parties’ choice.

“Serdang MCA division is up in arms over what it says is the plan of the BN headquarters to field a candidate for the Serdang parliamentary seat. Chinese dailies have speculated that Liew Yuen Keong’s camp is in conflict with party members loyal to former Serdang MCA division chief Yap Pian Hon.”

Hmmmm…. what happened to the declarations such as “I’m loyal to my XYZ party”, “I am doing servicing because I sincerely care”. You lot just disclosed to the whole world that all this time you all were really not doing whatever community work for the sake of the community’s betterment.

Eh, kurang asam… all these time taking free rides using party machinery to push for their personal advantage.

If these people think they are worthy of being elected, these people should just resign from their respective political party, fork out own money to fund their own candidacy as independents.

Don’t la play the sulking baddie and sabotage your own parties’ operations centres… Boleh?

“The division had threatened to boycott the election campaign if it was resolved that Wangsa Maju Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Mohd Shafei Abdullah were to replace division chief Datuk Yew Teong Look.”

Latest I heard some Subang Jaya friends said that Ong Chong Swen is also going to show her displeasure over being dropped as calon for N31 Subang Jaya. In what way, I wonder. I hope this ex-teacher will not show a bad example to mothers. Shame if this Wanita MCA central committee member behave so.

Selfish and hungry for personal fame, I wonder if their own party members will care to vote for them in coming party elections after the GE.

Ong Tee Keat n Ong Chong Swen

MCA’s Ong Tee Keat and Wanita MCA’s Ong Chong Swen

While we are on this topic, will this MCA man Ong Tee Keat be standing as an independent in Pandan constituency?

Philosophy of new voters registration

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Parliament, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 3:21 pm

.
Always, always you hear Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat harping on importance of new voters registration for their party to win the polls. Always, always we hear anecdotes by politicians that registering new voters will add more votes to their party..

Sure or not?

In this age of more heightened human and consumer rights, how can UMNO, MCA, MIC, PAS, DAP, PKR, etc., not realise that most people who aren’t already registered aren’t registered for a reason?

That big reason being they don’t WANT to be registered? That the major reason being they don’t TRUST the political parties to do the lawmaking job effectively?

Consequently, even if you get them to register, it’s going to be tough to get them to actually turn out to vote.

Ain’t that a lot of time and energy wasted for minimal potential return?

Amazing isn’t it, the unthinkingness of our politicians…

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.

Stars: Can we still have them like they used to?

Remember the poise and how stars used carry their business with the public?

After Teresa Teng came Fong Fei Fei.

Public perception is so very important in this dog eat dog world, especially for those in public’s eye, don’t you think so?

.

MCA, hope you heed this. Your members are way behind in this area.

Read public reactions to MCA’s Jessie Ooi who attracted attention with her emotional off topic issues during Q&A session at the debate between Chua Soi Lek and Lim Guan Eng on 18 Feb 2012 organised by ASLI and INSAP.

Trivia time:

Did you know that Jessie Ooi the MCA Beliawanis Selangor chief also happens to be the Penyelaras BN for Selayang? Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai is rumoured to be eying to be candidate for Selayang this GE13. It will be interesting if Jessie will give Donald hell if he does any misstep during campaign, hehehee.

Find out for yourself readers’ comments and reactions to her behaviour at Malaysiakini here.

System error?

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:44 pm

Negri Sembilan MCA chief Dr. Yeow Chai Thiam caused a minor brohaha recently when he disclosed his generous helping an opposition politician’s mother and was not thanked for the assistance. That subtly implied Teo Nie Ching (MP for Serdang) needed to be vocally thankful for his helping her mother who was in need of medical assistance some time ago.

But let us not get caught in the silly business of needing to be publicly thankful or grateful to politicians who offered social welfare/charities as their core business instead of law & policy making.

So for voting rakyat, the most important questions to ask of BN and particularly of MCA are:

1. Why are we having a health system whereby sick people need to get MCA bigwigs’ assistance in order to get proper medical attention”?

2. Is such a system being deliberately created by the BN government so that their party leaders can demonstrate their ‘importance’?

Thanks to a commentator by name of ONG who posted the very pertinent question here

.

Hey, I’m not totally against MCA, but if MCA needs to get beyond GE13, its leaders and veterans need to clean up after itself before even thinking of contesting. Wiser for these oldies to just backoff and let new faces rise up to be MCA candidates.

btw, Can somebody clarify if Yeow Chai Thiam is a real doctor who took the hippocratic oath, doctor-patient confidentiality or a PhD graduate?

Hopefully medical doctors today will not take oath-taking as little more than a ritual with little value beyond that of upholding tradition of that time honoured profession.
