Soundcheck time, religious authorities!

Oft times, it is due to limited funding or carelessness that our religious establishments cannot produce top quality sound from their loudspeakers.

Sounds that is processed through bad audio can grit the ears of all within earshot. Babies get startled and shocked out of their sleep, mothers get riled up, late night workers robbed of the interrupted daytime rest that they so badly needed before facing the rat race the next nite…. adoiiiii.

Nevermind if it is a mosque or a temple, they all suffer the same predicament brought on from abuse of poor quality audio broadcast/equipment. Them audio equipment ill suited for public broadcast shouldn’t have been installed without professional competent advice in the first instance.

A mosque or temple exists for public ‘patronage’ – they wouldn’t want their public to be turned away unnecessarily or by poor opinions of their lack of technical competency.

In this ICT era, it is time for religious authorities to beef up their technical department to assist and check the religious premises’ audio systems. Otherwise the public is treated to news of unhappiness caused by sounds (eg: MCA man complained about loudness…, the case of Teresa Kok with a mosque’s loudspeaker, etc)

Soothing and quality sound to heal modern distressed souls are always welcome anytime. Therefore, bring on the good sounds but not the unnecessary vitriol please.

ISA arrests, 1 released, reactions and MCA: Malaysiakini

A lot of hooha and angry words were thrown at the government over ISA arrests of the Sin Chew Daily reporter (Tan Hoon Cheng), Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK-Malaysia Today) and YB Teresa Kok (MP Seputeh, ADUN Kinrara). Even poor MCA leaders were scolded (the reporter is Chinese, mah…)

I was also angry until Tan Hoon Cheng was released. Then I found out that I have spent my energy on hot air whilst somebodies did something to get her out.  (sheepish…and a bit malu over my typical over over-reaction. I’m a typical Malaysian, mah. )

The sheepish and malu reaction was due to a friend who sent below to me:

Media Statement by MCA Publicity Bureau chief Dato’ Fu Ah Kiow in response to the ISA arrest of Sin Chew reporter, Sdr Tan Hoon Cheng

Fu Ah Kiow : ISA arrest of reporter bears negative image on Malaysia


Along with all Malaysians, I am shocked with the use of ISA to detain reporters.

This is uncalled for and the Malaysian people are very unhappy. Sin Chew’s Tan Hoon Cheng is only a reporter who is carrying out her duties in reporting.

We see no reason to for the use of ISA in this circumstance. Instead, people have also asked – what about the police investigations into Dato’ Ahmad Ismail ?

This action definitely bears a very negative impact on the image of the country in the international scene and the ISA arrest will invariably affect investor confidence and our economy.

We appeal for calm and stability in the country.

Meanwhile, our MCA President is meeting the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to seek for Hoon Cheng’s release.

Whilst I spent the 13/9 on hot air, these chaps in MCA worked to get our Hoon Cheng out on 14/9.

Tabik, MCA!

For once, I’m happy to have MCA in the government.

Next time, I’ll check out your MCA website before I waste unneccessarily my Yang energy.

Tired… now this banana needs to go back to sleep.

I’ll come back to worry about RPK and Teresa soon.
