Natasha said all the press eyes were focussed on Tiong King Sing the MP who is at the very moment having a FALL-OUT with MCA President Ong Tee Keat at The SPDP Supreme council meeting in Kuching. What he said to the Press can be read at the borneoposts.com but what tickles us is the way he said, But I think Enough is enough lah! Do you HONESTLY THINK SO……Bugi Wijaya meanwhile filed this report from the Land below the Wind and he has gathered the necessary information to give us a Very Happy Merdeka High…hik hik hik..!!!
It was no ordinary wedding at the Sabah Cultural Centre in Penampang on the night of 29 August 2009. Thousands of guests including UPKO President Tan Sri Bernard Dompok was in attendance despite the heavy rain and thunderstorm.
After all it was the wedding reception of the son of Albert Boyou who runs Montis Sdn Bhd, the main contractor for a number of oil and gas projects.
As the band belt out the Frank Sinatra “My Way”, it seems to be reminder among the UPKO dominated crowd that this has got to do with the embattled MCA President Dato Ong Tee Keat . Earlier in the day, the local Daily Express has the headline of UPKO Treasurer General Datuk Dr Marcus Mojigoh asking Ong to step aside from his position before his personal agenda affects the whole BN coalition.
This is the first component party within BN who has spoken out on the current ‘fiasco’ facing Ong. Whether this will pick up momentum among the other components it is yet to be seen.
While Mojigoh who is the MP for Putatan do not deny his close relationship with Dato Tiong King Sing, he feels Tiong should not step aside his position as the Chairman of the BNBBC if Ong does likewise.
With UPKO stand, is this the end of the road for Ong?
If one believes in the sign from the gods then it has to be from Sabah. Mazu is the goddess who is associated with fishermen and mainly worshipped by the Hainanses clans among others. It seems that as the Mazu statue controversy in Sabah where the erection of the Mazu statue in Kudat were stopped by the state government, blessing will not reach the Hainanese.
This is evident now where Ong is a Hainanese and at the moment it seemd destined he will be the shortest serving MCA President in history. For the record the other Hainanese MCA President was Tan Koon Swan who was president for 11 months that is from November 1985 till September 1986. Prior to being president he has even been sacked from MCA.
So as we await for other to join in the bandwagon of UPKO, it seems like the song Ong should recite would be…….
And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I’ll say it clear,
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.
I’ve lived a life thats full.
I’ve traveled each and every highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Regrets, I’ve had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.
I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.
To think I did all that;
And may I say – not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows –
And did it my way! HAPPY MERDEKA TO ALL MALAYSIANS WHEREVER YOU ARE FROM ALL OF US AT audie61.
