“Cobra …Christmas Carollers Ho Ho Ho”

Taman Primrose Riveria seems to have it all at the moment and the 110 houses at the outer ring road in Kota Samarahan is beginning to draw the attention of mosts people. Is this a coincidence..? Doubt it as just two days ago a cobra came too early for Xmas and visited the area.

 What about the Visitations of the Bees.???

Today at around 9pm around 35 SIB carollers came a calling to the area and sang their hearts out in wishing the Residents by walking through the “Lorongs-Lanes in English” siging We wish you a Merry Christmas

It was very impromptu on the part of the carollers and on behalf of the residents of Primrose ,Taman Riveria we would like to thank them for the  wonderful and joyous rendition of Christmas songs. The leader of the group thanked everyone and handed Chritsmas gifts as they passed by.

If it was all pre-planned it would not have such an impact and their sweet voices and smiling faces was more than enough to spread the fellowship of the Christmas spirit amongst all in Primrose. It seems that Primrose has its fair share of  activities in the last 8 months and we might just provide the tonic for a Friendly 1 neighbourhood  in the making.

Thank  you SIB carollers for Sharing the Joyous Songs of chrismas with us in Primrose.

On behalf of audie61 management and crew we would like to wish all our friends,readers,supporters and alliances a very Merry and Blessed  Christmas and Peace to all Man. God Bless you all  and we would be taking a well deserved break for the Holiday period. We should be back and kicking and punching our way around on Boxing Day!!!!

Political SPDP “Love” Triangle

 

Wednesday LATEST 22.05pm It seems over dinner and eventhough the Youth Chief Posts held by Tiong King Sing will see a tussle between Nelson Balang and Raymond Abong it has not even caught anyones attention. The focus is still on the Deputy Presidents posts and the interests weighs heavily on the two candidates in Nyarok and Phillip. The question is who is backing Philip..???

Wednesday LATEST 18.05pm . Confirmed after Mawans Press Conference “There is a fight for the SPDP Deputy Presidents  posts” 

Wednesday LATEST 18.00pm Received smses asking to inform Philip Ngo to “ASK HIM TO WITHDRAW FOR PARTY SAKE.” 

Wednesday LATEST 17.31pm:- audie61 received this sms from deputy Presidential candidate Philip Ngo,” It really is not about me or any individual or personality in the party.It is about the right of our members.,their shared dreams and visions.it is about creating a culture of respect,honor,trust,promoting goodwill and peace amongst man,where strive,envy,divisive and selfish spirit could not find a place.Its about steering the party towards the right direction together.It is about creating a better world and a better tomorrow.

 Wednesday LATEST 16.55pm:- Philip Ngo wasting his time says an sms to Joey of audie61. No problem for Nyarok. He is in the Presidential Lists.  

Wednesday LATEST 16.15pm:- Words of encouragement from  Ngo’s supporters,” nyarok is now in Julau campaigning. We think that he realised that he cannot take you for granted. keep the spirit burning and alive. We are with you my friend…”

Wednesday LATEST 16.12pm:- Joey received an sms from a source from Philip,”Together we can,together we bring CHANGE.Agi Hidup agi ngelaban.” 

Wednesday LATEST 15.55pm:- audie61 telephoned an SPDP left hook puncher and he said that Philip Ngo should withdraw as he is facing a 90/10 fight. this is latest from the ground and its reliable..Getting interesting or is Nyarok playing mind games..??

Wednesday LATEST 15.50pm:- Supreme Council  members of SPDP says its a close  tussle 50/50.Its HEALTHY and DEMOCRATIC for the party. 

Wednesday LATEST 15.45pm:- Our Privelege source received an immediate response from deputy Presidential candidate Philip Ngo,” We r doing this for our shared future.If we don’t reengineer ourselves,come next elections,we may find ouurselves on the wrong side of the fence. Tks.”

Wednesday LATEST 15.05pm :– Joey of audie61  just receive smses news that Nyarok is on the offensive.Sees Philip Ngo as threat and he is busy campaigning in Julau.

Tuesday LATEST 22.49pm :–The fate of our generation depend on us.Lets give it a shot and NO TURNING BACK…(Philip Ngo sms)

The Presidents lists” I leave it to you to make your own judgement. What was said in the main stream media covered by an English daily was repeated by Philip Ngo SPDP deputy Youth chief to audie61. Of course, as a good poker player he would not reveal which posts he will be going for in the main body.He has received overwhelming support from many close aides and delegates to the SPDP TGA ever since he has made his intentions known.

Phillip was earlier speculated to challenge William Mawan for the top posts but upon very sound advice and good political manouverings he was given a clearer path that the Deputy Posts is within his grasps. Close sources in Mawans camp were clearly relieved as their President Mawan was telling them he has had many sleepless nights.

Our Privelege source also confirmed that Mawan can now concentrate in overlooking and ensuring that the TGA will run smoothly as the party welcomes the Prime Minister for the first time. The focus is now on Peter Nyarok the deputy.

Nyarok has never been elected into the posts as he was elevated by default moving up from Senior Vice President. This will be his first challenge of any sort within the party hierarchy and voices of dissatisfaction are coming very clearly from some very close Mawans aides. They are already political whisperings of ,’ MAWAN IS NOT 100% BEHIND NYAROK..?”

If Mawan can do it to us by omitting us ,what chances of him not being betraying his No.2 for a choice which is preferred by the majority. Philip Ngo does have some of the cards on his side and also AGE might just play a very vital factor in this deputy contests.

Many even said that Nyarok has just outlived his usage in SPDP. Our Privelege source even says this is Longhouse Politics Brother… and Nyarok must know what is coming towards him. Of course all is not losts to Nyarok as he has with him the tag of Deputy President and Assistant  Minister to help him through. Will this be enough if the Presidents man are advised to look into the alternative…AaaahhhhDuuuHhhhH for Nyarok..

The Prime Minster would not be around to witness the elections and even if he is he would welcome a fair,friendly and healthy contests as what Philip Ngo told the Press. Wouldn’t we just be surprised if the PM said,” SPDP is leading the way with a very Healthy FamilyElection and no one will say that SPDP is not democratic and its up to the delegates to choose those who can lead the party to greater heights” Can we read the PM’s mind….hmmm 

An innsider surce said that with contests in SPDP line up its good or else the party is no different from a communists party with just “One Menu” or “Chai Tua”.At least SPDP can claim itself to be a democratic party. Mawan should just let his “machais’ do the talking instead of entangling himself in a very precarious position with UN-Presidential statements. The Pakatan group are watching closely these developments and any possible  cracks within SPDP will be good for the Pakatan coalition in the next elections

Philip will have many advisors with him and amongst names that are thrown in to assist him are Peter Gani(Vice President) George Gerai(Supreme council) and both are divisional heads with voting strenghts and they just might have more than a say in the elctions. Some grassroot supporters  say they were believed to be given a “Golden Handshake” to stay out of the race but our privelege source thinks otherwise. (They were not even considered for the Presidents Lists..Wow!!!) 

 The shift of gears is to see that one does not overstay in the positions accorded in the party hierarchy or else the party will not move forward and will be stagnated. Philip Ngo has made his stand and he stands on the very principle of what the party constitution is and where the party should be heading. Could he be the right man for the Deputys posts? We will only know after the elections on the 30th of December.  It could be a good year ahead for either one of the two candidates. We wish both of them well and all the bests…………..

BOMBA.JPA”XMAS COMES TOO EARLY FOR SOME..”

6.16 pm an emergency call was made to 999 by the owner of No.19 Primrose Taman Riveria that he has a close encounter with a very deadly reptile. The reptile “a cobra” measuring around a metre in length must have just had its feed as it rushed to the No.18 house to rests at the corner.

Neighbours upon hearing of a cobra rushed out in droves and soon the numbers swelled to almost 100 persons. No matter how dangerous the cobra might be, but still people as curious as they may be are not too worried of being bitten but as long as they are well informed to tell a tale. Sounds familiar to some ,”news does travel fasts ……”

Of course the excitement of making phone calls rests to some and the answers from the operators with regards to the response team were..”.They are out for dinner..They are on the way..Nobody is around …We will keep you inform

999 being  a centralised hotline and the operator Salimah passed the line through to JPA. The above were the answers from JPA. True enough the bomba responded faster and after the incident only then did the JPA arrived ten minutes too late after the Bomba had done their days work and there was a thunderous applause. Hooray..!!

 

Phone calls were also made to both BN and DAP legislative assemblyman. YB Voon Lee Shan was quick to respond and both of them did their bests to call the authorities concerned. An incident like this can throw the whole  neighbourhood together and with 110 houses in the Primrose area in Riveria imagine what benefits it will be for a politician . Need we tell you more….

This Primrose area has seen three incidents so far with the Bees attacking the LAMPOSTS  three months ago ,dengue issue with Health authorities and Samarahan council where the whole area was intensely fogged, electricity issue very fresh with the Council,Sesco and Naim the developer. Read This( https://audie61.wordpress.com/2009/07/02/what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-our-mentalityblind-spot-and-t-a-t/

This Cobra has indeed turn up too early for XMAS but its a way for mosts of us to greet each other a Vey Merry and blessed Christmas. Thanks Bomba and JPA. However its up to the YBs concern to bring up this issue of a quick respond. The cobra was finally caught at 7.23pm.

The cobra did take an hour of our time to create and enhanced the neighbourhood to 1Primrose.Hmmmm..

PAS..BN ENJOY WHILE IT LASTS..!!”

Joey received a call from a PAS sympathiser and the person said,” Tell the BN brothers to enjoy their stay at the TOP when they still have the time and not to try and paint PAS in the bad light. I am referring to what the Chinese Press exclusive interview with PAS President Abdul Hadi Awang.” Oooh alright said Joey and  we will check it up and a  number of phone call was made to relevant sources.

On the advice of our seniors in audie61 we posted this article from malaysiakini and let the reading public make their own judgements and to avoid controversies.

Top leaders of Pakatan Rakyat dismissed a news report which quoted PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang as saying that he is against the official registration of the coalition.

Instead, they suggested that Hadi may have been misquoted in an exclusive report front-paged by Chinese-language daily Sin Chew Daily.

pas seminar 071109 hadi awang“It is not the time for the three parties to register as a coalition, PAS does not want to make any rushed decision,” he was quoted as saying.

“Pakatan should put the registration on hold and focus on discussing cooperation among themselves first. It need not to be a party. More importantly, we must work at arriving at a common ground and work to settle our differences.”

Official news agency Bernama also carried a similar online news report quoting the PAS president.

Malaysiakini, after failing to get a response from Hadi today, spoke to his political secretary Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, who shed light on the report.

Ahmad clarified that Hadi does not dispute Pakatan’s decision to register as a coalition.

barisan rakyat pas pkr dap“He agrees to the registration. There is no issue in terms of the three parties’ registration as a Pakatan Rakyat Party,” said Ahmad.

He added that Hadi maybe have been referring to how the three parties could move forward as a coalition although they each have a different political ideology.

“This did not mean he wants to suspend the registration. Pakatan Rakyat’s registration application has been submitted to Registrar of Societies (ROS) and is pending approval.”

‘No dispute’

DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang said he believes Hadi would not have made such a statement.

lim kit siang 201108“Any such statement is completely against what we have worked for. The news report is not correct,” said Lim.

He also said there is no dispute because top leaders of the three parties had agreed to submit the registration application to the ROS last month.

PKR director of strategy Tian Chua said had contacted PAS leaders after reading the news report and issued a clarification.

tian chua 03 240505Chua (right) said Hadi had spoken in the context of the huge responsibility on Pakatan’s shoulder – that, registered or not, the work is cut out for the coalition, including ironing out the ideology of each party.

“Hadi did not mean that Pakatan should not register. We are awaiting approval from ROS., Our focus right now is how to strengthen Pakatan,” he added.

“Would you like a Cup of Cappucino…?”

It’s very British if you say,” Let’s have tea..” Suddenly it seems the shores of England Cappucino is the favoured drink in the afternoon. How times have changed and how the connections and flavours have taken off. Has the Serie A losts its sting to the English PremierLeague. Wow! It’s an influx of Who’s Who in Italian Football heading to the British Isles. 

Heading the lists of Italians landing the top football Management posts are Fabio Capello (England) Gianfranco Zola( West Ham) Carlo Ancelotti( Chelsea) and now Manchester City has added Roberto Mancini to the lists.

The recent upsurge of Italians to the Managers seat comes after the 1st revolution of Italian football superstars to play in the English Premier League.  Top Football Managers in EPL in the last twenty years has been dominated by Alex Ferguson (Scottish) Kenny Dalgish (Scottish) George Graham(Scottish) Aresen Wenger(French).

Now  it seems that Fabio Capello would have three of his countryman helping him to chart  Englands World Cup Dreams  in Next Years World Cup in South Africa. The English are ready to pick up this new trend of having a cup of cappucino plus having lasagna,pizza nd sphagetti to achieve their World Cup Dream.

Times have changed eversince the days when I was a first year student in the UK when the landlady said to me in the afternoons,”Lets have Tea..” Are you ready for the Change and Move  on to Cappucino…hmmm hik hik hik….??

YB says ” Been There “

An internet portal posted an article which it seems to have stemmed up from the dissatisfaction especially with the recent resignation of its Vice Chairman from the Federal Appointed posts. The media they say will jump into any story that will shake the administration and create some ripples. Of course the bloogers in the blogsphere will add more gravy plus  implicit details and facts to give it an added spice.

Is PBB Youth in a bad shape with its leader spending too much time in the Federal capital?

Knowing Fadillah who is also a close friend Im sure he will not be bests please especially if the knives are coming from the back instead of his members in the MKT being sincere and talk it out openly in the round table or approach him to air their grieviences. ( I am not apple polishing here mind you as we know which YB does their work) 

  As for Karim he sms me and said,”He has been there before and he is not too keen” You make your own judgements after you read what has been posted…..   

The article  By Abdul Hakim Bujang

In football, normally an experienced coach would get his reserve striker to warm up if the top marksman is firing blank. That is what a group of vocal Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) youth leaders are doing.

They have been going around, hinting and signaling that the Youth Chief post should be contested. I am sure Fadillah Yusof, the incumbent is fully aware.

I have not met Fadillah in person since Batang Ai by election, the very last time am got to meet Malcolm Mussen “The Invisible YB”.

PBB is a very complicated political party. They are two entity under one roof. Very united despite the sibbling rivalry. The unity in PBB is partly because they have a very firm leader in Abdul Taib Mahmud and Alfred Jabu.

Discontent leaders have been very vocal during PBB youth executive councils meeting, most of whom demanding what was promised during the party closed-door Triennial General Meeting (TGM). PBB last TGM was a family affairs, and doors are nicely shut for the press.

One of the issues brought up was lacked of activities due to Fadillah extremely tight schedule in his Ministerial role.

Critique said that Fadillah is embroiled in the unique situation due to very special circumstances. Suffice to say that he is blessed with a non-politician as his vice on Bumiputera ticket.

There is no need for me to mention the name because every PBB members and supporters active at grassroots level are fully aware of it.

It was learnt that some PBB youth leaders are not happy because the wing is unable to make their presence felt apart from failing to create viable opportunities for member and supporters.

“They may organise this economic course and that opportunities course but there were literally no follow ups.” One of the youth leader who spoke with Sarawak Update quipped.

Another leader who spoke very frankly, insisted that politic is about sacrifice and struggling for the betterment of the society. Fruits of the labour, whatever little, must also trickled down.

They claimed that the movement is slowly losing its appeal and blame this to the collective failure of “Fadillah team” leadership.

Off all the names, the person being pushed to challenge Fadillah is PBB loudest voice in state legislative assembly who is former PBB deputy youth chief, Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

Karim, whom is also Chief Minister chief political secretary when contacted for comment admitted that he heard about and is leaving it to the party top leadership.

“Being in PBB youth was the best part of my political struggle but my peers are already in the Kaum Bapa (main body) and I will be 50 soon,” he said.

When pressed for comment, Karim insisted PBB youth leadership must try to solve the problem within the movement, and believed that it is best the movement leader to be elected among themselves.

“I am already in the party main body supreme council, and would abide by the leadership advice. Furthermore, I would feel very lonely there though I may be able to join them at coffeeshops, big-biking or other youth activities,” he said.

Sarawak Update would try to get Fadillah Yusof comment tomorrow. Furthermore, the TGM will be held in March a long-long way to go…

DAP Voon “Driven to serve”

The fat lady has sung the last verse for N11 Assemblyman Voon Lee Shan and though it has left a bitter taste in his mouth after the Sarawak DAP convention he told audie61 at breakfast,”Let the people of Batu Lintang constituency judge me after I’ve gone. When your time is up its time to go but I’m not going but MOVING ON “. Its like Chess,next step….

His wife a pillar of strength behind the man who wrestled the seat from former Mayor of Kuching City South and N11 SUPP candidate Chan Seng Khai could not agree more.  Batu Lintang State Constituency (24783) is considered undoubtedly a stronghold for the the Barisan National Government but 2006 was the day when Voon Lee Shan changed all that. No one gave him a GHOSTS OF A CHANCE and now there are undercurrents (see articles below) from his own party to replace/reassigned him to a more difficult unwinnable seat.

He goes around his business meeting his constituency and it was a REAL CHANCE meeting to have bump into him at Breakfast. He was going round the tables shaking hands and exchanging pleasantries and listening to problems of his constituency. He told us plainly,” Whatever has been done is done and for me the politics that has happened like the one audie61 played up on STORM WARRIORS must not go on as it will be VERY UNHEALTHY FOR DAP SARAWAK. I  have taken it on the chin and I hope that my comrades in the party will look deeper before they decide to move to oust him from the Batu Lintang  N11 State seat.

Of course there are clashes in style in  any party and the people will be the judge of it all. What has been played up in the main stream newspapers on “DAP will be fine even without me” should not be the final card which N11 YB Voon has on his sleeve. His eyes lighted up when the people at the coffeeshop shouted,”Don’t worry we are with you Voon and keep up the good work.” He said to audie61,’  COULD I LEAVE THIS PEOPLE AND NOT SERVE THEM..What do you honestly think…?”

On another note he thanked State DAP Chairman Wong Ho Leng for giving him the chance to challenge or else it would not have clipped his wings ” just a bit ‘ to know where his strength is.

 The people of N11 is his strength and if the party just  listen to hearsays and just replace him as Candidate for the forthcoming State election it might just play straight into the BN hands. DAP will need to stop this private infighting for the good of the party.

There has been too much infighting in SUPP and this is the bests chance for DAP to use the momentum of the people behind the party. There should stop this SELFISH THOUGHTS ONCE AND FOR ALL and serve the people first and not chop,chop,chop and change,change,change on those winnable candidates. The Vote X is with the people and though how popular the party is, if the people decides that the candidate is not THEIRS its a bye,bye,bye to the party.

DAP is no different and many young Sarawak urbanites voters feels that SUPP’s troubles will be DAPs gain but then again if DAP continues to have unnecessary needle attacks at each other the people will have the final say. This scenario might just happen in certain seats and it will be a lose to the parties involved.

We posted this earlier in which the spat with Karim Hamzah the BN bakbenchers Chairman might just have knocked him a few steps back…He is facing his toughest battle not only internally in DAP but also against outside forces of the Police Report and the allegations of criminal intimidation and the various smses which are already in the hands of the Police. A date in court will do him more harm than good and if the case is not in his favour he will have to relinquish his position.

Its now time for him to RETHINK,RE ENERGISE,REPLAN and tear up his FAILED  ACTION PLAN  but to RETRACE where he took the wrong turn and where the NO-ENTRY should be heeded instead of trying to beat the system of the party. The following articles written are food for thoughts by Voons strategist and as an Assemblyman who says,” I am driven to serve and I will buy that.

Be it a BN or Pakatan/Independant  Assemblyman wherever or whoever you are when the attitude is right the people will vote you back in if you understand the very basic of ” What its all about being a people’s representative…?? 

DAP will be indeed be a SORE LOSER  if the NAILS CONTINUE TO BE DRIVEN IN………….
