After 26th March-Sarawak Polls

No guessing game needed. His 30th year book is already taking shape and now with his marriage what else is NEW? He can take his  lovy-dovy time now and wait for the right moment. The cut off period though is July 2011.

Eventhough Sammy Vellu the former MIC President has already called it a day. The “HEAT” is on  CM Taib to finally leave the State adminstration to a New Man incharge.

 A school of thought has even said,”he should leave sooner rather than later as if he delays and take charge to lead the State in the next elections he will lose his invicibility” Sammy Vellu is enjoying his new found status and Taib must also be looking at this angle.

 An Assistant minister and YB N6 was quick to point out to audie61 almost immediatedly,”We need his Wisdom.HE knows the State to well and BN Sarawak will need him to lead us into the elections

The internet portal Malaysiakini has this,”Guessing Game Coninues on State polls-“It has been a year when political pundits engaged in a guessing game of when the state election would likely be held – although the current term of the Sarawak state legislative assembly expires only in July next year”

Another BN assemblyman also told a journalist in our presence,”CM Taib holds the key but we must be prepared at all times which we are as always ever since the losts of the Parliamentary seat in Sibu. That was really a blessing in disguise and now the BN Sarawak will not take anything forgranted. We will face the enemy who is outside headon and we will stay united inside.”

The call of “The enemy is Outside was echoed by UMNO Youth Chief and Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin and he has really touched the “NERVE POINT” of the BN coalition partners. Even now as we are speaking at the Pakatan convention the YB said,”I heard the BN is under attacked and at every opportunity the shells and torpedoes are being fired at us with regards to Pakatans march to Putrajaya and how NOT WELL(tidak bagus) we are running the country. They are having their convention now just after our BN Convention.


The YB continued “CM will scrutinize and ensure that our 71 BN candidates are up to mark and as PM Najib says “winnable candidates” which has far reaching effects and all the State BN Chairmans will need to adhere to. Its already a different approach and away from the ‘norm where the warlords will push their candidates through and try to derail the machinery if their candidate is not picked.” CM has always gathered information and he knows the ground well if not he would not have stayed this long.

Can you manage even 15years without collapsing..?? 


On one side of the coin the people are blaming the ruling BN Government for the price increases on the petrol,diesel,Liquified petroleum Gas(LPG) and sugar. On the flip side some are also finding fault at the whole world economy which has spiral down and has affected the country. It is so easy to pinpoint faults at BN/Pakatan but the reality does sink in especially for the people on the street and working for the daily earnings.

Has overpolitiking affected both political divide until they drive each other up the wall..??  Both coalition  are so afraid of each others shadows and it needed a “Saint” Idris Jala now to inform the public of the true picture.

He is not even a politician belonging to any political party but a Corporate Man ropped in by the Government and he has no qualms but to blast it out that Malaysia may go bankrupt by 2019 if things are not checked.

Paul the Octopus a media darling now is overused and he might be stressed/burnt  out sooner than expected. We have turned to PETER the Electric Octopus to WAKE UP THE WHOLE COUNTRY TO THE REALITIES WHICH MALAYSIA NEEDS TO FACE.

Both sides of the divide needs to find a solution and deliberate it in Parliament and get to the bottom of it all. Believe it or not an EMPTY GAS CYLINDER 5 years ago costs $40 as deposit. Now for new house owners/shops/vendors the price for deposit for a similar cylnder is at M$120. Even your favourite coffee with sugar will soon see an increase of at least 10cents to 20 cents.


Lingam would have told you that its correct,correct,correct especially for too much sugar,sugar,sugar will have detrimental effect on your health.



“Had A Bad Day..Watch.??”

Its one of those days when we hear people from all walks of life complain about Life in Malaysia will never be the same again. Why…?? Subsidies gonna be cut,price of oil,tuition fees,standard of living,cars,housing,food etc etc will ALL GO UP.

Hang on! Life’s not to bad if you CAN LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF IT. The Almighty Creator will want us to be HAPPY and Cheerful now.MALAYSIA IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.LET’S BE OPTIMISTIC



PCM..”Creature of BN..??”

audie61 and the crew had a great laugh.These politicians certainly know how to come out with names or at bests get themselves into trouble or shoot themselves at the foot.

One can just imagine on how will the leaders of PCM react..?? Don’t tell me just Brush it off after being called ,”PCM is the “creature” of Barisan Nasional. If PCM is the creature what are the members called..?? Hahaha Sort that out and if you can’t maybe Baru Bian can help. ( Look at the above.We have found the illustrated members…..”  “CREATURES

How can we have any understanding with PCM, when it is the creature of Barisan Nasional, whose intention is to disrupt our preparations for the coming State election”? Baru Bian Sarawak State PKR Liason Chief  speaking to reporters.

“S-G SPDP…??”

Will he ..? Will he not..?

It seems barely a few days after the SPDP TGM there are strong undercurrents swirling that Sylvester Entri might not be re-appointed as Secretary General. There seems to be very strong objections from the majority group who wants to put their own man to be the SG to the party. A phone call was even made to the Executive Secretary of the party by our source to clarify whether the President has made up his mind and his answer was a ,”No not yet” 

It appears that Mawans hands are tied closely and it remains whether he will come out unscathed or face a revolt of some sort inside the Supreme Council. Will they use a 2/3rds majority to remove him if he goes against their wishes?  A preemptive move by a ‘NO CONFIDENCE VOTE on the President”

So who is the other person favoured. It seems lawyer Kilat Beriak is the frontrunner if Sylvester Entri (Assistant Minister) is not reappointed.   Why Kilat and not Sylvester..?? This needs not be answered by audie61 as it is already well publicised that earlier there were some internal arguments which had sparked up a TEAM A and TEAM B grouping which was eventually compromised with a solution.  

It seems that actions can only take place after the party elections are held to eventually sort out  the  niggling internal problems. According to our innsider source its a FRESH NEW Headache for Mawan and it is not so difficult to solve. He can just discard both these two persons and opt for someone who has the caught the imagination of the party and public at large. Even those in the BN family are talking about him being burnt to ashes.

But as the saying goes,” Like a Phoenix he will rise from the Ashes and claim his Rightful Place.” Could Philip Ngo be just the right person to take over the SG posiion to balance the possibility of a ‘CRACK IN THE PARTY“. We never know as the decision lies in the hands of the President and he can surely use Philip as a leverage to stop all the infighting or interference from outside as openly claimed by some.

Surely the defeated Deputy President candidate will not be well received by Nyarok or Tiong but they say the party is above all and it could just be the right tonic for the BN SPDP party. A well placed source said Philip has certainly created enough Bang for the party and he could be just the perfect antidote to influence many more young and dynamic members to BN and SPDP.

This words could be just perfect to start a new reengineering and reinventing exercise for BN. Philip has walked the talk and he could counter PKR Dr.Chua Jui Meng very easily if he campaigns in Sarawak as Dr.Chua is known to have said these words,” A politician who keeps quiet is not a politician.” So could we see a choice between Sylvester.Kilat or Philip? If you are the President of SPDP  who will you choose…???

Mawan will use the time available to weigh the options and he alone will announce the SPDP SG as it is his prerogative..

Anwars” January 25th date”

Natasha of audie61 received an sms from a former colleague,’ Check out Anwar’s date in Court and reposts the article if possible.” 

We reposts the article from an internet portal for all to have an insight:- 

The High Court today dismissed an application by Anwar Ibrahim to strike out the sodomy charge he is facing. The court then set trial dates from Jan 25 to Feb 25 for the case to continue.

NONEThis morning, Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah ruled that only a full trial could determine if there was actual penetration as charged by the prosecution.

Anwar’s defence team had argued that the sodomy charge could not stand as medical reports showed no penetration on the victim.

“While the medical reports may ‘state no conclusive clinical findings to suggest penetration of the anus/rectum’, this court however cannot cancel the charge,” said Mohd Zabidin, before a packed court room, which included former MCA vice-president Chua Jui Meng, who recently joined PKR and PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

“Witnesses have to be called in to testify to attest to the matter. The matter has to go through full trial to also consider the forensic evidence, to determine the case ,” he added.

Zabidin said this evidence and report would be useful to the defence team in creating doubts over the testimony of the witnesess on the incidence of penetration.


Anwar had previously failed in his attempt to remove the prosecution team from the case.

Allegations against the AG

Anwar, 62, was charged with allegedly sodomising former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 24, at a condominium in Bukit Damansara on June 26, last year.

He had claimed trial on March 10, at the Kuala Lumpur High Court against this charge. He was initially charged with the offence at the Sessions Court, before the case was transferred to the High Court.

Justice Zabidin, in his 14-page judgment also touched on Anwar’s defence team’s submission that the prosecution had acted ‘mala fide’ in preferring the charge. He said the allegation is mainly against Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail.

“They argued that the prosecutors in this present case had realised the role the AG had played then in 1998. They listed the role played by Abdul Gani in twisting and fabricating evidence against Anwar in 1998.

abdul gani patail“Despite this, there is no evidence to suggest that the same scenario is happening in this present case. Just showing Abdul Gani’s (left) role in 1998 is insufficient. That the present batch of prosecutors may have knowledge of this does not mean they (prosecutors) would be biased.

“It is also insufficient for the court on the balance of probabilities at this level, to decide that the charge faced by the accused is a result of mala fide,” he said.

Thus, Zabidin said Anwar’s application to set aside or quash the charge under Section 377B of the Penal Code is dismissed.

Anwar’s lead counsel Karpal Singh indicated to Zabidin that they will appeal today’s decision. Lawyer Sankara Nair told reporters later he would file the notice of appeal tomorrow.

Anwar unhappy with trial dates

Meanwhile, Anwar said he was disappointmented with the manner the High Court judge fixed the trial dates without considering the fact that an appeal is pending at the Federal Court on a related matter.

Anwar said that he was waiting for the Federal Court to hear his appeal to obtain further documents and evidence from the prosecution.

“The judge has decided to fix hearing dates in total disregard to our appeal on the matter. This is a first – there is ‘no need to wait for the Federal Court, let us proceed with the hearing’.

“Previously he had decided for us in gaining evidence from the prosecution and now he has decided against us by fixing the trial date.

“The very least is for him to respect his own previous decision that allowed us access to the documents and give time for the Federal Court to hear and decide on the matter,” he said.

Anwar also said while the court had verifed the medical reports from four specialists who said there was no penetration, this is the first case in the world where prosecution has been allowed to go on despite the reports stating there was no penetration.

He said today’s decision was also perplexing in that while the judge seems to have agreed on the role played by Abdul Gani in fabricating evidence, he decided that the present batch of prosecutors would not be influenced by bias.

anwar release 020904 sukma dermawan close up“However, we have evidence that solicitor general 2 Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden was involved in the Sukma Darmawan (right) case, where evidence was also fabricated and in the end Sukma was cleared.

“I’m worried that this prosecution, led by Umno, is withholding vital evidence directed to hurt my case. If such evidence is provided to the defence, I’m prepared to have the case proceed tomorrow,” said the opposition leader.

Describing today’s judgment as disturbing, Anwar said the medical evidence was conclusive and the judge seemed to have acknowledged that but he had hinted there maybe some other evidence to be adduced.

This is the first case in the history of modern times that you prefer a charge of sexual abuse ignoring medical evidence that conclusively states there was no tear or penetration.”

“I think we are in for a tough battle. We will fight them because we have compelling evidence and facts to support us. But the manner the prosecutors and court want to proceed with the case seems a bit worrying to me and my team of lawyers,” he said.

The defence earnestly asked Justice Zabidin to set mention dates instead of trial dates during proceedings, because of pending cases at the Federal Court. However the judge refused and fixed the hearing next month.

Sankara said his team would be studying on whether to apply for a stay of the hearing pending the appeal of related cases.

SKY”Miew””Sugar Daughters Anyone..??”


When I read Sim Kwang Yangs article on China Dolls in Cat See full size imageCity,Miew it reminded me of a certain X YB who came down hard on this issue and well the rests they say is HISTORY. Did she win the last State elections..?? The article in hornbill unleashed can be read in Full by clicking HERE

Its  not that we do not have other pressing issues but this has got to do with a lot of advertisements that are appearing in the local dailies as a COVER for enlisting the China or foreign nationals  to work in the massage parlours. Check it out as this is a Prerequisite by the LABOUR  Department and if no one answers the advertisement the company can engage the workers. SCAM or Government legitimacy..!!!

SKY  mentioned 195 massage parlours and 3000 Chinese girls from mainland China enter Sarawak every month!  They are now the hottest commodities in our town!” Isn’t this great for DOMESTIC TOURISM..? Something is amiss here and the immigration and local labour department and police needs to put an END to this or else we would end up as SEX ADA RAMAI(SAR……AWAK) Are you GAME..???  The situation is CRITICAL and BAD and Something drastic needs to be done quick or quickly……..

The clamping down is not up to me but this is well above the LIMIT or I can say ,”TELL ME WHO IS ALLOWING THIS OR THE COLOUR OF MONEY IS TOO GREAT TO RESIST..??? NEXT They will be SARAWAK VOTERS I’m pretty sure says a political analyst.

 Well Sim Kwang Yang this is even better from TV Smiths blog and I reposts it here.

by TV Smith

See full size imageThe government’s latest austerity drive to replace the cars of senior government servants with a Mercedes or BMW has resulted in an unexpected backlash.

Sugar daughters, mistresses and trophy wives are now revolting against the idea of driving a local or Japanese car. They reasoned that if any high-ranking public servant including under-performing ones are entitled to a new German marque courtesy of taxpayers, they surely deserve better.

As expected, their previously-so-sweet sugar daddies reacted sourly. A statement from their association, Sugardaddy Society And Help (SuSAH), encourage members to date less-demanding artificial models instead.

I spoke to two such models (pictured above) seen shopping at the Masjid India area. They confirmed they are happy to window shop at budget bazaars instead of splurging on branded stuff at upmarket malls. Besides, they appear more aware of health issues.

In response, affected sugar daughters formed a protest group named Sugar Daughters Against Humiliation (SuDAH). The acronym was earlier wrongly quoted by the media as Sugar Daughters Against Honda or Hyundai. As a show of support for SuDAH, a group of ex-models and starlets staged a noisy protest in front of an artificial modeling agency yesterday.

We say as always,”Not a bad Monday is it? Someone needs to get down to the BOTTOM of this all or else you know what will become of SAR…AWAK”  

Tell Me Again,” Sarawak Opposition Parties”


audie61 have received a lot of email concerning the “REALITY CHECK of Opposition penetration into the BN control system in Sarawak. Any areas of concern..? of course the Semi-urban areas where SUPP is busy fighting amongst themeselves which will benefit DAP. Sandiwara or BN SUPP reengineering/reinvent/replacing old leaders..???

” RURAL AREAS ARE STILL BN’s to lose….”. The reality is that says a prominent barrister ‘ Who will be the Candidate put up by the Opposition parties in the rural areas..?  Any one with “Clean White Hankerchief” or will it be someone who has seen the bests of his battles in previous elections.

He also went to say that BN faces its toughest yet as the infighting amongst the main component parties of BN in MCA( Ong vs Chua) MIC ( Sammy’s factor) SUPP ( Dudong controversy) might just spill over and benefit the Pakatan group if there is ” ANY.. IN SARAWAK ESPECIALLY AFTER SO MANY UNCERTAINTIES CROPPING UP..HMmmmm.

So he said tell them to look at the lists again and tell him that the Sarawak Opposition can sweep more than half of the seats and to form the next STATE Government. Are they bluffing or still hallucinating like audie61 posted in the last article  that the people have changed and are with them in THIS CHANGE..

BN looks vulnerable but when the reality BITES ,BN Sarawak will still come out on TOP. Tell me in 2012 or earlier and that BN has fallen in Sarawak he said loudly to us. ” Are they still DREAMING….?Look at the lists again and we reposts..

” He reiterated ,” Have they earmarked their SEATS..?

Chua Soi Lek”Su Hock Ee”


It was like any other Hari Raya Visitations to an old school friends house. The usual greetings and pleasantries were exchanged plus also the delight to see so many familier faces. Whats more the food laid out was…. Oooh SOoo appetising. There were many voices of different opinions especially as school mates meet they will be like old times in school eventhough that was nearly 20 years ago “all trying to be No.1 and be heard” Familiar..??

Of course each will try to say their own piece,”The economy,the political scenario (BN vs Pakatan) the educational system but the one that LIGHTED THE FIRE was the MCA No.2 deputy President Chua Soi Leck. One of my school mate hit the right chord when he said,”This Chua really Su Hock Ee ( Lose to Him translated from Hockien). He also seems so thick skinned and would not just disappear silently like most politicians of yesteryears would have. Would anyone of us fight like he does..?”

The MCA saga has gone overdrive and most of us gave the THUMBS UP to Chua for his perserverance and never say die attitude. One of them even say like Josephians never know when they are defeated. We will fight to the last drop of our blood. Surprisingly,most of us were very unhappy too with Ong Tee Keat for not being steadfast and be more accomodative towards a person who has already paid for his sins in being shamed. Even God forgive the sinners they say and why would Tee Keat not make use of the No.2 man to his advantage.

Has he forgotten about the rule book. Never question the No.1 but if the No.1 does not show respect and bulldozzes through without even telling the No.2 that is a sign of WEAKNESS. Even Najib consults Muhyddin on certain things before he moves his agenda. Im sure Anwar also does that said an old school mate. What makes Chua Soi Leck so prominent its because Ong gave him the PLATFORM and the OPPORTUNITY to hit back. Chua was already shamed with the video sex scandal but one of us added another phrase  in Hockien,” BIN POI KOW-meaning Thick skinned.

You all might be WONDERING WHY MCA…?? Why are we not touching on local politics or even UMNO,PKR ,DAP or PAS? Surely the PKFZ scandal and Tiong King Sings issue is worth a conversation.  Moreover there were about 20 of us and in a Malay friends house. The answer was in our year we were taught the right meaning of DIPLOMACY (Ong needs to learn from us hik hik hik ) and since some of us are from different political divides there was a NEED to follow the LINE OF NEUTRALITY. Chua Soi Lecks purported EGM and the possibility of the ouster of the MCA President is the TALK OF THE TOWN. Who is going to be the AYAM MASAK MERAH in this fight..??

We could go on and on on how this fight will pen out but like the good old days some one just “Detonated  a very good quiet atomic gas”It was signal and the wives in the other room were too happy that it was cut short. One of them even cheekily said ,” Got any steps learnt from each other and what about  the Booster or Viagra used by Chua Soi Leck. Just then one of them showed us this article and how ironic it was as we were talking about our friend Chua.

Posted and copied for all to make their own judgement.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 21 — Just when the MCA seemed all set to hold its extraordinary general meeting (EGM), in the wake of deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s dismissal, the party’s central committee (CC) has flexed its muscles to overturn the decision and suspend him for four years instead.

This begs the question of whether the power of the CC was overlooked, or even underestimated, in the fractious past weeks which saw more than a fair share of barbs traded between rival supporters of party president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Dr Chua.

“They overlooked the CC as an independent body and pre-empted us by going straight for an EGM which should be called only as a last resort, and not the first resort. Members should not have jumped the gun,” CC member Datuk Ti Lian Ker, of Pahang, told Bernama.

He said disgruntled members should have waited first to see how the CC would act before pushing for the EGM, now fixed for Oct 10, after the presidential council sacked Dr Chua for tarnishing the party’s image over a sex video scandal.

Ti said the party constitution empowered the CC to take disciplinary action  against any elected party official including to suspend or to expel with the support of two-thirds of the CC members present at the meeting.

Under Article 128 of the constitution, the CC has the final say on disciplinary matters and that cannot be challenged, even in a court of law.

Ti said he had insisted that Dr Chua’s issue be discussed at the marathon seven-hour CC meeting last Saturday, to show that the party president could not act arbitarily, or that the CC was just a rubber stamp.

Currently, there are 43 CC members, with 25 elected, seven appointed by the president while the rest are party office-bearers.

Ti denied that the CC’s move was tantamount to a lack of confidence in the presidential council, saying that at the same meeting the CC had overturned other disciplinary decisions as well.

Party sources said Dr Chua’s issue was brought up by Senator Datuk Wong Siong Hwee from Kelantan and all were given the opportunity to express their views, including the most senior CC member, Datuk Wong Mook Leong.

Wong re-told his experience when he was sacked during the party crisis in the 1980s, saying that a suspension would have a similar effect as an expulsion, the source said.

“Some CC members sympathised with Dr Chua. They felt there was no need to push an already broken man and believed he should be given a chance to salvage a bit of his shattered honour,” it added.

Ong, who chaired the meeting, had to “eat humble pie” in the face of the check and balance on his leadership by the CC, the source noted.

Enraged supporters of Dr Chua, however, hit back that it was not appropriate and an act of disrespect to the central delegates for the CC to discuss the matter as the rival factions had already agreed to the EGM and agenda.

Even Dr Chua spoke up: “Are they trying to say the CC is more supreme than the EGM?”

Party veteran Datuk Yap Pian Hon maintained the CC had the mandate because all decisions, including disciplinary matters, must go through both the presidential council and CC, the two decision-making organs in the party.

“If we stop at the presidential council level, it can be argued later that the decision is invalid because the due process was not complete,” he said.

Dr Chua’s supporters are pointing fingers that it was Ong who first called for an EGM on Aug 31, when they had barely started their signature campaign to push for one to annul Dr Chua’s sacking.
