A song for Bentong folks to figure out

Just the song for residents of Bentong, Pahang to keep their ears close to this lovely weekend.

We’re simply the best

In a world of superlatives, Malaysia is no stranger.

For a recent example, see below which is extracted from Malaysiakini.

Despite numerous complaints over the electoral roll, Election Commission chief Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof declared that Malaysia has the cleanest electoral roll in the world.

In an interview with Sin Chew Daily published yesterday, Abdul Aziz repeatedly stressed that the existing electoral roll is clean and no country in the world has a cleaner one than ours.

A sacrifice named Shahrizat

Prime Minister Najib Razak commended Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil for having made — eventually — the decision to quit the Cabinet. (She’s not quitting now, though, but at the end of her senatorship on April 8, 2012.)

He added that this was her ‘sacrifice’ for the sake of the government and Umno.

Sacrifice? Isn’t quitting the job was what was expected of Shahrizat by many Malaysians ever since the NFC controversy erupted? If anything, the taxpayers are the ones who had ‘sacrificed’ their RM250 million (in the form of government loan) that had gone to many things that were unrelated to cattle-farming!

Which is why concerned Malaysians still want to see those responsible in this scandal be made accountable, notwithstanding Shahrizat’s quitting.

A radioactive imagination

Set against a backdrop of the current Lynas controversy, this film — which is directed by imaginative Liew Seng Tat — explores grim (and at times, comical) scenarios of a post-apocalyptic Malaysian kampung. An enjoyable and educational flick.

Er, it’s okay to attend Thaipusam…

Perak Mufti Harussani Zakaria declared that it’s okay for Prime Minister Mohd Najib to have attended the recent Thaipusam celebration — after the latter had a personal chat with him recently.

So, folks, please delete his earlier comment on February 10 that he was dismayed over the Prime Minister’s decision “to sacrifice his faith” to attend the religious festival concerned.

The resolve of Allah-tested Shahrizat

The umrah-weary Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil declared in no uncertain terms that she’d carry on leading Wanita Umno.

She added that the Cow Controversy was merely “Allah’s way of testing her resilience as a leader” (which suggests that she’s aware that God is watching us always). “Resilience,” as defined by the dictionary, is “the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune; buoyancy.” But some cynics and critics may even include “arrogance” and “obstinacy” to this definition.
