Washing Yarn Temple

State plots against state
intrigues come thick and fast
but here at Washing Yarn Temple
Xi Shi offers us harmony
a pair of faces can beam
just from turning to glimpse her
while thousands of seasoned troops
ground their weapons and surrender
Fan Li achieved his greatness
by turning away from the world
while Wu Xu had to die
in order to wear down the government
the great river confers a name
upon a place like Zhuji
but this blue mountain has long been known
as a beautiful woman‘s birthplace.

A leader bus driver and on the rising nudes of Singapore

Filed under: Citizenry, Family, Life, news — Tags: , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 1:24 pm

If a bus driver can take on a leadership role in an emergency situation like this, I have to salute Singapore for demonstrating to the world how their people’s reasoning is superior.

See story below:

Woman arrested for boarding bus in the buff

A MIDDLE-AGED woman has been arrested after boarding a bus naked – the latest in a string of such incidents.

The Chinese woman in her 50s turned up at a bus stop in Ubi wearing a black blouse and pair of black pants, Lianhe Wanbao reported.

She slowly stripped, putting her clothes into a large handbag she was carrying.

Several minutes later, the number 22 bus ferrying more than 20 passengers reportedly arrived at the bus stop next to Block 302 in Ubi Avenue 1.

The woman boarded it and made her way to the back.

The bus driver is said to have promptly stopped the bus, ordered the male passengers to the front and women to the back, where they could help shield the woman.

Read the full story in Friday’s edition of The Straits Times.

But on the other hand, more people are going nude in Singapore…

Yikes! What happened along the way to a first world country, Mr Lee Kuan Yew? No wonder Dr. Mahathir so wary of it.

Protect and uphold rights of civilians from harm: The strange case of Norizan bte Salleh

.

It is mandated by law that our Polis DiRaja‘s duty is to uphold and protect the rights of civilians to peaceful existence.

Remember when older Malaysians reminiscence fondly of the British administration which established Malaysia’s ‘mata-mata’ solid reputation for their discipline and policing skills during the colonial times?

But in Malaysia’s modern democracy, we seem to be hearing more stories claiming abuse and deaths caused by police onto those whose crimes or punishment have yet to be determined and sentenced by the judiciary.

Today, we hear of the strange case of a 30 year old single mother, Norizan bte Salleh, whose submission to Suhakam commissioner N Siva Subramaniam , claimed:

1)  to have sustained 5 gunshot wounds when policemen opened fire on a car she was traveling in.

2)  was travelling in a car when the incident happened. Without justification, police shot at the car from behind, the bullets penetrating through the body of the car and hitting Norizan who was seated at the back seat.

3)  after being shot, Norizan was then kicked and stepped on by the police personnel despite bleeding profusely from being shot.

4)  to have lodged a police report on 16.11.2009 complaining of attempted murder by police, but no action has been taken by the authorities against the culprits.

5)  has never been charged in court for any crime.

6)  she has suffered serious injuries including permanent damage to her hand. A bullet lodged close to her heart had to be removed by surgery at Institut Jantung Negara.

It is understandable to hear reactions of horror when the public read of above such ‘imbalance of treatment’ onto a civilian by the police.

We have heard one woman’s story above.

We now need to hear the police’s side of the story.

Especially the police’s policy and SOP on safeguarding civilians and even those under surveillance to reassure all citizens and visitors that their right to justice is secure by law.

A high income economy as aspired by Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia cannot afford for its law enforcement agency’s capability to be relegated or KPI-ed by the people under the Wild, Wild, West (WWW) category.

That’s not very nice, Anwar Ibrahim…

My heart is broken.

2 lovely female calon asking for my vote. Shahrizat the veteran lawmaker and Nurul Izzah the freshie idealist.

One would be forgiven for thinking that it be a woman vs woman political contest. No problem.

Until on nomination day… I saw Anwar Ibrahim outside the Bangsar Sports Complex. And then I heard Malaysiakini, radio, internet and newspapers telling me that my beloved Lembah Pantai is now the hottest seat this GE.

No…! No more plain woman vs woman fair contest. It’s now man against woman.

This is not fair, Anwar. It’s not fair to Nurul Izzah to put her through this. It’s also not fair to put Lembah Pantai voters in a spot, to take them away from well loved Shahrizat.

I’m not happy with this development. Not at all.

Hindraf and Bersih love Lee Chong Meng or not?

I missed the Rose March. But my heart is with the people. Peace and love to all. Please stay strong in your conviction and show your support for the best candidate who dare to take up your issue this general election. As Mao said, “No matter if its a black cat or a white cat. If it catches the mice, its the good cat.”

Identify now your candidates and question them if they will take up your issue, what’s their action plan, timeline and most importantly, report card to you.

Speaking of report card, I’ll be damned if there is no objection to this opportunist Lee Chong Meng’s bid for candidacy.

Why has Malaysiakini not reported his day in court and silent about this guys blatant advertisement of himself as THE candidate for Bukit Bintang? Why no report of this guy’s condoning of gangsters?

I wonder if anybody still remember… He was rejected candidacy last GE because he’s got a court case for hitting his mistress. Yes, mistress. Yes, hitting a woman. Go and google out the juicy details from the chinese newspapers. Somebody help me… can’t read mandarin..

Give me a woman candidate so that I can get rid of this chauvinistic doc.

Get rid of Bukit Bintang gangster Lee Chong Meng!

That was my immediate response when a friend who votes in Bukit Bintang complained to me about this Dr. Lee Chong Meng.

Yes, he the Bukit Bintang branch MCA chairman. Yes, he the one who rounded up some cari makan people to complain about Bersih.

He showed me an sms quoting a Malay Mail report (15/2) that the doctor ayam on hearing a woman candidate might be sent by MCA to contest Bukit Bintang, said: It is unacceptable for a woman to lead in the golden triangle as there are lots of issues which only a man can handle. This area is a haven for the underworld. It is definately not easy to handle gangster and taikos if you are a woman.

Here we go again, a display of anti-woman courtesy of Lee Chong Meng. Must be very painful for this man to shoot his own foot after so many donkey years of trying to represent the Chinese of Bukit Bintang. My friend was seething mad at his insolence to suggest that Bukit Bintang voters do not want clean and fair election.

Friend, here’s a suggestion:

Give your vote to the woman candidate to effectively punish & spit on this arrogant man’s face.

It’s also more practical than wasting your precious vote on ole horse Fong Kui Lun. He’s low on utility if KL ever wants to emulate Singapore city.
