Thank you Sunny Lim : The True Penang Crime Buster

Dear Sunny Lim

I would like to thank you for your efforts in reducing the crime rate in Penang, of late there was another Lim who went to another country to claim credit over your original efforts

To be completely honest with you Sunny I find what you have done as macho giler siout....., kecik2 dulu gua pun semangat nak main askar2 n police n thief.....tapi kalu lu suruh gua voluntarily risk my safety for the greater good of the community....I think I'd prefer to stay in and watch the tele...

So since everyone is on the topic, allow me to take this opportunity to highlight to everyone what you have done for the state of Penang.

Good job mate!!!!

I sincerely believes that efforts such as yours should be supported by all and be replicated throughout the country.

the Uranus Monkey and Part Time Ahbeng Bodoh Hunter

PENANGITES appear to have been sleeping better these days, thanks to several groups of unsung heroes who help police to combat crime. The biggest so far seems to be the 1,800-strong Penang Island Voluntary Patrol Unit (PKSPP) which was formed two years ago. From a mere 30 members to its present strength, the unit is hailed as a force to be reckoned with, assisting cops to help keep criminals at bay.
And the man behind it, lorry salesman Sunny Lim, seems unperturbed over the huge jump in membership in just two years. “I’ve always felt that there are a lot of people out there who want to help the community but never had the chance (to do so). Our unit gives them that opportunity,” he said in an interview. In fact, voluntary patrol teams and other community policing groups were commended by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar for their efforts in helping the police to keep the crime rate down. During a high-profile policing programme and walkabout at Air Itam market last Thursday, the country’s top cop said police would enhance its relationship with volunteer patrol teams and other units to tackle crime. 
Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob had also attributed the state’s record-breaking drop in crime rate by 27.1% last year to community policing. Lim said he got the idea to set up the PKSPP in 2009 while volunteering as a Rela and Rukun Tetangga member. “Our surveillance began within the Komtar area and slowly, we expanded to the whole island,” he added.

Guan Beng Logic: Something Spoken in Private is OK?

Twisssssted this AhBeng

Wah lau weh.....

So simple la beng ?

Did you or Did you not say it ?

Show me the "Khazanah Warisan Melayu" in Kampung Baru

PAS bawa isu Kg Baru ke global jika Putrajaya ‘berdegil’
KUALA LUMPUR, 28 Sept — PAS akan membawa perkara isu kedudukan Kampung Baru di ibu negara ke peringkat antarabangsa jika kerajaan terus berdegil tidak mahu memulihara Kampung Baru sebagai khazanah warisan Melayu, kata Naib Presiden PAS Salahuddin Ayub.
  “Jika kerajaan terus bersikap keras kepala dengan keengganannya untuk memulihara Kampung Baru sebagai khazanah warisan Melayu, banyak lagi yang akan dilakukan dalam pelan tindakan bersama-sama Sekretariat Pembangunan Kampung Baru (SPKB) termasuk membawa perkara itu ke peringkat dunia dan bukan setakat isu nasional sahaja,” kata Salahuddin.
Bukan setakat perjuangan demi mengekalkan warisan bangsa Melayu yang semakin pupus, tegas beliau sambil memberitahu, “tetapi kami yang terlibat membantu bantahan penduduk Kampung Baru terhadap Rang Undang-Undang Perbadanan Pembangunan Kampong Baru 2010 menyifatkan perjuangan itu sebagai pejuangan peribadi kami sehingga dapat diselamatkan Kampung Baru sebagai khazanah warisan Melayu.” Source here

What you smokin dude...mintak sepam....

Khazanah Warisan Melayu?????????

Now show me The Melayu Heritage in that picture?

Guan Beng apa betul lu tara cakap itu macam?

Just saw Mole's cover on Guan Beng..

TV3 during its prime time news Buletin Utama today played an audio recording of the voice purportedly to be of Lim when addressing a luncheon talk with the Foreign Correspondents Association of Singapore. The audio had the speaker who sounded like Lim saying "so you don't have to worry about your safety when you come to Penang. In Johor, if you are a Singaporean, you are likely to get kidnapped" source here
I've been wondering ever since the denial came out......

Why he directed the discussion towards what he said in Australia when the context of comparison between  the 2 states would be more familiar to Singaporeans...

So folks...

Did Guan Beng said it?

Does he have it in him to say such things about another state?

While we wait for his next denial ....ponder upon what he said of Johor in 2007

The people’s loss of confidence in the police to effectively prevent crime is the principal reason why gated communities, where housing estates are completely fenced up and patrolled by privately hired security guards, are mushrooming throughout Johor Baru. This raises the question how can the police protect foreign investors when the police not only fail to perform but refuse to do their duty to protect the people. Source here
With that perception in his mind ......monkey thinks the very the possible one....

Remember folks he had no Economic Interest then......

Now as the Mentri Besar vying for FDI....all the more reason to project his state as better in everything that is Ahbengly possible.....

Duit HARAM for Sekolah HARAM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 — At least RM100 million a year from gambling profits will be channelled into vernacular and mission schools in “close consultation” with Barisan Nasional (BN) parties, Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.
 The prime minister said this when launching the “Community Chest” fund run by a consortium of tycoons that paid over RM2 billion for billionaire T. Ananda Krishnan’s Pan Malaysian Pools Sdn Bhd (PMP) in July. The Putrajaya-backed education fund spearheaded by Tan Sri Lim Kok Tay of gambling giant Genting Berhad, pumped an initial RM26 million to 61 mainly vernacular schools today and pledged to channel a minimum of RM100 million annually beginning next year.

Elok la tu....

Wonder what the "Mission" schools would feel ya? Your "Allah Ciplak" says OK?

As for the Sekolah Harams ask simple questions folks......why not funds from MOE?

A Top Heavy High Income Malaysia: Visions of the 14 Kerat Reformer

PETALING JAYA: The recent announcement made on the eve of Malaysia Day has reinvigorated the Malaysian spirit and will propel the country further in its goal to become a high-income nation, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. "There is no reason why with the new Malaysian spirit we cannot achieve our targets and goals," he said when addressing the conference, Making A High Income Nation A Reality, here Friday.
Najib said a high-income society was not a recipe to help the richest but to benefit the young and lower rung by providing more jobs at the top of the income scale. "As you create more room at the top, it creates more opportunities for people at the bottom to move up, which in turns frees up space on the bottom rung of the ladder for entry-level employees. "I believe this will be invaluable for many young Malaysians, proving to them that you do not need to leave the country in order to embark in a career with a future," he said.

Najib said the goal of making Malaysia a high-income nation was not the Government's alone as it cannot be done in isolation, adding that all must pool their collective resources, from big corporations to researchers. He said the conference showed that other parts of society were dedicated and willing to play their part in moving the economy forward. He added that targets set under the Government Transformation Programme and the Economic Transformation Programme were part of the aim of increasing income, investment and competitiveness. The conference is jointly organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) and the Institute of Strategic Analysis and Policy Research (Insap) with The Star as its strategic partner and the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation as its sponsor.Source here
Bole cita ke pakcik?

I dont get it gua dah dua tiga kali baca that statement

Is that your strategy pakcik?

Is this what the Con-Sultans being feeding you?

Create Jobs at Top of Income Scale? So that the bottom moves up?

How do you know that the bottom have the necessary skills to move up?

What if someone else comes at a lower rate to fill up the bottom?

The Who-Dude Poker Game

Idiot No 1 
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today threw his weight behind Kelantan’s longstanding plans to implement hudud, saying that the laws proposed by the PAS government protected the rights of non-Muslims. The Pakatan Rakyat (PR) de facto leader stressed however that PR had not discussed the matter and this was only a “personal opinion”. “For now, in general, in principle, I believe this can be implemented. Looking at the specific areas, and there is clear guarantee that there is administration of justice. 

 He explained that Kelantan’s hudud law plans were “specific” and it covered two important aspects — a fair administration according to Islamic law and ensuring that the rights of non-Muslims are protected. “It is a specific area that affects Muslims and does not impeach rights of non-Muslims. The proceeding makes sure that administration of justice is guaranteed,” he said. More here
Idiot No 2
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22 — Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat dismissed as laughable suggestions that Kelantan could now go ahead to implement hudud law in the state now that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was no longer the prime minister. Instead, he challenged Datuk Seri Najib Razak to withdraw any objections the federal government still had over Kelantan’s longstanding plans to implement hudud. More here
Idiot No 3
 PUTRAJAYA, Sept 22 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today that Umno supported hudud laws in principle as they are part and parcel of Islam but stressed that Malaysia was not ready for such laws to be enacted. The deputy prime minister and Umno deputy president said there was a need to spread information about hudud laws so that the people understood what they meant before the ruling party could even think of implementing them More here

Dudes you wankers got nothing else to do ka?

Who are you to suddenly want to implement a law on top of the existing Shariah Laws being "enforced" on us Muslims?

Is it your responsibility to govern my Iman?

1MDB What is your real scope of operation?

PUTRAJAYA, Sept 19 – The government today offered Haj trips sponsored by 1Malaysia Development Berhad to 111 imams and chairmen of village development and security committees in appreciation of their role and contribution to society. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak handed over the offer letters at his official residence, Seri Perdana, here. Also present at the event were Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam and Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar. “It has been in my mind, since taking over as the prime minister, to do the best within the government’s means for the welfare of imams and village chiefs,” he said.
The 1MDB programme will benefit 57 imams and 54 chairmen of village development and security committees. Najib said the selected people had never performed the Haj, and added that the date for their trip to theHoly Landthis year would be make known soon. The prime minister said the 1MDB programme would be an annual affair where imams, village chiefs and other eligible people would be considered for the Haj trip. He also said that the government had helped these groups previously by raising their monthly allowances, from RM450 to RM750 for imams and from RM450 to RM800 for the chairmen of the village development and security committees.Source here
I find that piece a news rather alarming.

Why of all the institutions or agencies 1MDB is used as a Vehicle to undertake something that is beyond their scope of operations.

The Government of Malaysia wholly owns 1MDB as a strategic enabler for new ideas and new sources of growth to propel economic transformation. 1MDB seeks to identify and unlock strategic value to fully unleash new growth potentials. 1MDB has a unique concept in driving economic growth. It creates high-impact business opportunities to forge international partnerships through equal-capital joint ventures in game-changing projects. It leverages on the partners’ expertise to build capacity and translate their capital into foreign direct investment. The company focuses on investments with strategic value and high multiplier effects on the economy, particularly in energy, real estate, tourism and agribusiness. Every investment undergoes a rigorous process of best global practices, supported by local and international experts as well as state-of-the-art infrastructure. Source here
Why can't such program be embedded as an Employment Benefit on a Co-Sponsored Basis with the various Jabatan Ugama Islam and the respective body in-charged of monitoring Kampungs....

If you work with us for X number of years then a special Haji Bonus kinda thing....

I'll give you one example on how we do it here....

The Best Democracy in the World: Visions of the 14 Kerat Reformer

 I had this on my FB status update: 

I don't care a wee bit if ISA is around or not, what is important is the ability to provide food on the table for my family, quality education, a roof over their head and all of these should be accessible to all. The gap between the top and the bottom is getting bigger and becoming pretty obvious.
That kinda sums up how I feel about this whole ISA thing.

Today the "14 Kerat Re-Former" talks about making Malaysia the Best Democracy in the World....

ISA repealed to make M’sia world’s best democracy: PM:
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Sunday the repeal of the Internal Security Act was part of efforts to make Malaysia the best democracy in the world. The Prime Minister said the repeal of the ISA was possible at this time because of the success in developing the nation, the increasing maturity of the people and the greater awareness of human rights in society. "It was not due to pressure from any quarter," he stressed at his Aidilfitri open house here that was attended by about 50,000 people. Also present was his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor. Najib said that changes to the law were part of the political transformation that the government was carrying out from the aspect of human rights. "The time has come for us to take another step forward not only in economics and education but also in upholding democratic principles," he added. He said the Barisan government would continue to champion the cause of the people "in all aspects" for their well-being. The Prime Minister said the uniqueness of Malaysia must be preserved with multiracial harmony as the country surged ahead. - Bernama Source here

How do you measure the Best Democracy anyway....

Gerardo L. Munck in a special project for World Bank published the paper titled “Measures of Democracy, Governance and Rule of Law: An Overview of Cross-National Data Sets”

The paper aims to provide the reader with a summary of the available indices in the market Current efforts to measure concepts related to political processes face an important conceptual challenge. As the range of concepts used by researchers and policy makers interested in understanding the political process has grown, so too has the search for relevant measures. But because the concepts to be measured have not been systematically defined, measures of these concepts have frequently fallen prey to a key problem. Indicators that relate only vaguely to a concept are used as measures. And indices are created by combining indicators that are probably best seen as measures of different concepts. As a result, the validity of the measures is open to question.

The E-CONomist....apa sudah jadi sama lu?

I wonder what happened to them actually......

Some on the extreme Malay wing of the party grumble that all this reform stuff is going too far, but they will go along with it as long as it does not touch on the most profound sources of oppression and grievance in the country, the institutionalised ethnic discrimination that privileges Malays over the country’s other races, mainly Chinese and Indians. It is the system of ethnic quotas and divisions that is really holding the country back—if Mr Najib started to take an axe to all that, then absolutely nobody would question his credentials as a radical reformer Source here
That piece was spinned further by Malaysian Insider
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 17 — The influential international newspaper The Economist has praised Datuk Seri Najib Razak for his move to repeal the Internal Security Act (ISA) and other controversial security laws but points out that he will have to abolish “institutionalised ethnic discrimination” before he can assume the mantle of a radical reformer. The extreme right-wing of Umno is expected to go along with the sweeping legislative changes as long as it does not touch on ethnic quotas and divisions, the newspaper said in an opinion published in its popular Banyan column yesterday. The international media has responded with measured praise to Najib’s efforts to assume the reformist mantle. “It is the system of ethnic quotas and divisions that is really holding the country back — if Mr Najib started to take an axe to all that, then absolutely nobody would question his credentials as a radical reformer,” the newspaper wrote. Source here

The very the strange one......

I asked myself........ am I the only one seeing the Economist in this manner ?

Apparently not......

Dani Rodrik the Rafiq Hariri Professor of International Political Economy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University feels the same about them

Am I the only economist who does not read The Economist? Well maybe the first one to confess to it. No, it is not because I am too busy and don't have the time. It is a deliberate decision. Call it a one-man boycott of ideology that masquerades too often as journalism.
It wasn't always like that. In fact, I used to love the magazine and its opinionated style. It was such a refreshing read after American media! I loved it so much that I preferred buying it at the news stand at a higher price to subscribing, because I could get my hands on it faster that way. When I spent a year out on the West Coast, my most important complaint was that The Economist arrived later there (on Mondays instead of Saturdays). But then I realized that the more I knew about a subject, the less The Economist was making sense. Its one thing to be opinionated, another to be misinformed and arrogant at the same time. After one too many articles in this mold, I simply stopped picking up the magazine Source here

Sour Sixteen: Understanding the delay on the Formation of Malaysia and the Official Kantoi Kencing Day

I started celebrating 16th of September as the official Kantoi Kencing Day in 2009...

Every year at the stroke of Midnight I would stand up and pee in my toilet bowl.

This year the government wants to celebrate the formation of the Federation of Malaysia......

Tumin Cook on FB asked me this when I put up a status asking people what I should write.....

How about should Malaysians celebrate one, two, or none independence day ;) I'm dead confused right now, especially having scored really bad in history during my primary and secondary school years.
I had a discussion with some folks on FB with regards to the underlying reason behind the 16th of September..and to my surprise not many was aware....

Why not 31st August?

Source here

31st Aug 1963 source here

Lets find out.....

The proposal for the formation of Malaysia was first made by the Prime Minister of the Federation of Malaya in May 1961, and a Malaysia Solidarity Consultative Committee was established at a regional meeting of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in July of the same year. Following a report by a Commission of Enquiry (the Cobbold Commission), which had conducted meetings in Sarawak and North Borneo from February to April 1962, the Governments of the United Kingdom and the Federation of Malaya issued a joint statement, on 1 August 1962, that in principle the Federation of Malaysia should be established by 31 August 1963. A formal agreement was prepared and signed in London on 9 July 1963 on behalf of the Governments concerned (the Federation of Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore).
Malaysia Agreement and its Amended Schedule executed on 28th August 1963 source UN Treaties here 

On 5 August 1963, following a six-day meeting in Manila of the Heads of Government of the Federation of Malaya, Indonesia and the Philippines, the Foreign Ministers of these three States cabled the Secretary-General of the United Nations, requesting him to send working teams to Sabah (North Borneo) and Sarawak in order to ascertain the wishes of these peoples with respect to the proposed Federation. The three Governments would similarly send observers to the two territories to witness the investigations of the working teams and the Federation of Malaya would do its best to ensure the co-operation of the British Government and of the Governments of Sabah and Sarawak.
The terms of reference of the request to the Secretary-General were set out in paragraph 4 of the Manila Joint Statement as quoted in the request addressed to the Secretary-General by the three Foreign Ministers:
The Secretary-General or his representative should ascertain, prior to the establishment of the Federation of Malaysia, the wishes of the people of Sabah (North Borneo) and Sarawak within the context of General Assembly resolution 1541(XV), Principle IX of the Annex, by a fresh approach, which in the opinion of the Secretary-General is necessary to ensure complete compliance with the principle of self determination within the requirements embodied in Principle IX, taking into consideration: (1) The recent elections in Sabah (North Borneo) and Sarawak but nevertheless further examining, verifying and satisfying himself as to whether: (a) Malaysia was a major issue if not the major issue; (b) electoral registers were properly compiled; (c) elections were free and there was no coercion; and (d) votes were properly polled and properly counted; and (2) the wishes of those who, being qualified to vote, would have exercised their right of self-determination in the recent elections had it not been for their detention for political activities, imprisonment for political offences or absence from Sabah (North Borneo) or Sarawak.
(Principle IX of the Annex of General Assembly resolution 1541(XV) of 15 December 1960 provided that a non-self-governing territory integrating with an independent State should have attained an advanced stage of selfgovernment with free political institutions. The same principle lays down that integration should be the result of the freely expressed wishes of the territory's peoples, expressed through informed and democratic processes, impartially conducted and based on universal adult suffrage)
In his reply to the three Foreign Ministers on 8 August, the Secretary-General made it clear that he could undertake the task proposed only with the consent of the United Kingdom. He believed that the task could be carried out by his representative and proposed to set up two working teams—one to work in Sarawak and the other in Borneo—under the over-all supervision of his representative. The Secretary-General emphasized that the working teams would be responsible directly and exclusively to him and, on the completion of their task, would report through his representative to the Secretary-General himself who, on the basis of this report, would communicate his final conclusions to the three Governments and the Government of the United Kingdom. It was the Secretary-General's understanding that neither the report of his representative nor his conclusions would be subject in any way to ratification or confirmation by any of the Governments concerned.

On 12 August, the Secretary-General announced the assignment of eight members of the Secretariat, headed by Laurence V. Michelmore as his representative, to serve on the United Nations Malaysia Mission. The Mission left New York on 13 August 1963 and arrived in Kuching, Sarawak, at noon on 16 August. The Mission was divided into two teams, each comprising four officers, one to remain in Sarawak and the other to work in Sabah (North Borneo). Both teams remained until 5 September. Observers from the Federation of Malaya and the United Kingdom were present throughout all of the hearings conducted by the Mission. Observers from the Republic of Indonesia and from the Philippines arrived only on 1 September and attended hearings in the two territories on 2, 3 and 4 September. On 14 September, the final conclusions of the Secretary-General with regard to Malaysia were made public. These conclusions were based upon a report submitted to the Secretary-General by the Mission. This report stated that it had been understood that by the "fresh approach" mentioned in the terms of reference established in the request to the Secretary-General, a referendum, or plebiscite, was not contemplated.
The Mission had considered that it would be meaningful to make a "fresh approach" by arranging consultations with the population through elected representatives, leaders and the representatives of political parties as well as non-political groups, and with any other persons showing interest in setting forth their views. During the Mission's visits to various parts of the two territories, it had been possible to consult with almost all of the "grass roots" elected representatives. Consultations were also held with national and local representatives of each of the major political groups and with national and local representatives of ethnic, religious, social and other groups, as well as organizations of businessmen, employers and workers in various communities and social groups.

As far as the specific questions which the Secretary-General was asked to take into consideration were concerned, the members of the Mission concluded, after evaluating the evidence available to them, that: (a) in the recent elections Malaysia was a major issue throughout both territories and the vast majority of the electorate understood the significance of this; (b) electoral registers were properly compiled; (c) the elections were freely and impartially conducted with active and vigorous campaigning by groups advocating divergent courses of action; and (d) the votes were properly polled and counted; the number of instances where irregularities were alleged seemed within the normal expectancy of well-ordered elections. The Mission came to the conclusion that the number of persons of voting age detained for political offences or absent from the territories when voting took place was not sufficient to have affected the result. The Mission also gave careful thought to the reference in the request to the Secretary-General that "he ascertain prior to the establishment of the Federation of Malaysia the wishes of the people of Sabah (North Borneo) and Sarawak within the context of General Assembly resolution 1541 (XV), Principle IX of the Annex." After considering the constitutional, electoral and legislative arrangements in Sarawak and Sabah (North Borneo), the Mission came to the conclusion that the territories had "attained an advanced stage of self-government with free political institutions so that its people would have the capacity to make a responsible choice through informed democratic processes." Self-government had been further advanced in both territories by the declaration of the respective Governors that, as from 31 August 1963, they would accept unreservedly and automatically the advice of the respective Chief Ministers on all matters within the competence of the State and for which portfolios had been allocated to Ministers. The Mission was further of the opinion that the participation of the two territories in the proposed Federation, having been approved by their legislative bodies, as well as by a large majority of the people through free and impartially conducted elections in which the question of Malaysia was a major issue and fully appreciated as such by the electorate, could be regarded as the "result of the freely expressed wishes of the territory's More here United Nations Yearbook 1963
