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.

O that superior man! He would not eat the bread of idleness!

Filed under: Citizenry, Family, Life, Malaysia, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 1:06 pm

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 news, a tragedy and a higher love

Just look and listen at how the TV presenter (the lady at -04:10, 1:50 and at the close) expressed her empathy to the victims of the family of a tragic family dinner shootout.

This is how media people should strive to be, so that the media is human again.

Which brings me to Malaysia tv, radio, newspaper and online media. I hope they will learn the power of empathy to connect with the masses.  The current unpolished treatment by the media and also the uncivil comments left in the internet… it is not too late we learn how to better treat another human being with aspiration of a higher love. Soon. A tall order for Malaysia’s 13th General Election.

P/S: My greatest sympathies to Patrick Knight on his dear loss. May he and family be strong.

Omitofu Amitabha “Four Noble Truths” campaigns to save Chua Soi Lek

Somebody forwarded this oldie but golden bit to me email.

Read it to check credibility of this Datuk who is now the chief campaign manager for Dr. Chua Soi Lek’s return to MCA + toppling MCA President Ong Tee Keat via a secret EGM proposals. Hmmmm… I wonder if Theng Bok is happy to share the limelight as co-campaign manager for SAVE Chua Soi Lek, ooops, SAVE MCA campaign?

Questions to Dr. Chua Soi Lek:

1. Couldn’t you fill your team with better and fresher faces and talents?
2. Why are all your campaigners has beens and/or losers in the people’s hands at 308’s 12th General Elections or those cannot work well with brothers in UMNO?

Why?

Why?

Why, indeed?

The sooner MCA is dismantled, the better. It has existed solely to make money from its presence in the government. Take the community hall built by the dbkl. It has 3 table tennis tables donated by well wishers. mca members took over the place under the infamous greedy tan chai ho and charge RM 50.00 entrance fee and monthly RM 10.00 for those who want to play. See, mca try to make money from every opportunity even over facilities that don’t belong to them. Also in OUG where the charge is RM 72.00 to join and RM 12.00 monthly by an mca gangster named loong peng sum. Could the new elected representatives help dislodge the mca and return the community halls to the people.

MIC leader shot dead in Johor

Filed under: Life, Media, news, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 11:03 pm

Man, the times are a changin… looks like Johor is one up already in hoarding the newspaper’s titillating bits.

This afternoon, an MIC Vice President was shot dead. In the Johor MIC HQ. Inside its lift.

Malaysiakini reported that MIC Johor deputy chairman and Tenggaroh State Assemblyman, S. Krishnasamy was shot at close range by unknown assailant, who then rushed off. Poor Johor Puteri MIC, R. Vithayamohan had an unpleasant shock when she discovered his body in the lift.

Guess which MIC division the late S. Krishnasamy (a contractor by profession) looks after?

Titillating Labis. Don’t remember? Click here.

And no, SPR’s Rashid said no by-elections.

PM terkejut already 3 times in the fresh new year. Btw, PM should sack the Minister of Internal Security for sleeping on the job.

Bersih: Roads to Parliament blocked

Dear PM Badawi,

A handful of your people are increasing their attempts to communicate with you. Their outreach methods via demonstrations, etc may be clumsy, ‘intolerant’ and ‘not the Malaysian way’ but please do take a listen to them. Please give these people who may have voted for you in 2004, a chance to reach out to you.

In 2004, I believed in your image of a ‘persuasive leader‘. I still want to believe it.

Dominant and institutional leaderships just do not cut it anymore.

Do connect with your people, especially the disenchanted ones. Use blue ocean strategy or whatever that’s believeable and workable. I’m sure you have with you, suitable advisors with adequate life experiences to assist you through.

Hindraf: Protesters charged with attempted murder

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Life, Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 11:56 am

How’s your Malaysian spirit and faith in justice today? Shaken but not stirred? Or apathetic still?

Government of the Barisan Nasional, still got time to respond and get on with your genuine national conversation now with rakyat (and I do not mean schmoozing with those with $$, lar).

See extract from Malaysiakini today:

Five more Hindraf protesters were charged with attempted murder at the Shah Alam Sessions Court today, joining the 26 charged yesterday.

They are jointly charged with using criminal force against policeman Dedi Abd Rani in front of the Sri Subramaniam temple at Batu Caves, between 1am and 8am on Nov 25, 2007.

“The message this charge sends to people is that if you gather in a place of worship and in the course of worship an incident happens, someone is injured, there is a likelihood you can be charged for murder,” defence lawyer GK Ganesan told the Shah Alam Sessions Court Wednesday morning.

“This is the first time in the history of Malaysia people participating in an unlawful assembly have been charged with attempted murder,” he said. “This is not a good thing,” he added, as he attempted to have the charges dropped.

Why Bail cannot?

At yesterday’s proceedings Attorney-General Abdul Gani proceeded to submit on why he was objecting bail.

His main point was that the offence for attempted murder and causing mischief was not bailable.

This was followed by the submission made by lead defence counsel GK Ganesan, who urged the court to grant bail to the accused. He then showed 15 photographs obtained from a website which depicted police action during the incident at the Batu Caves temple. “My suggestion is that these photographs do not absolve my client (of the alleged crime), but the photographs show that their innocence is plausible,” he added.

Ganesan also said that the photographs were meant to show that there was no sufficient evidence to charge the accused.

In his reply, Abdul Gani however countered Ganesan’s arguments by saying that the photographs had indeed implicated the accused.

Referring to the second photograph produced by Ganesan, Abdul Gani said, “Their fist are pumped in the air and fingers pointing upwards. This is not peaceful.”
