SPDP”A Lemon Twists”

A reliable source telephoned audie61 with these news,”Latest Bro. SPDP will see a fight for the Presidency.” Obviously the first question would be ,’Is it Nyarok against Mawan.? No,no,no its going to be the present SG Assistant Minister YB Slyvester Entri challenging Mawan. Also Nyarok will be maintained in the team with Entri as the No.2. This is breaking news as 6 SPDP Nothern divisions met in Miri (AIDA WAS THE PERSON WHO ORGANISED THE DINNER) and THEY HAVE given undivided support to the SG in his fight against the President.

( Latest updated:- Mawan has left to KL to attend the UMNO conference and also to inform Tiong of the latest development according to our source. Meanwhile an SC member told  audie61 on the phone there are a 1001 things which is happening in SPDP which we are not happy with. Seems the battles are beginning and might just  escalate.…)

Immediatedly audie61 swung into action to get feedbacks from the Political Secretaries and Supreme Council members and most of them would not be dragged into this fight and still remains divided in their opinions. A former Pol.Sec however told audie61 that ,”Wait till Friday and it will be more concrete.”

Could the PKFZ scandal be used as a leverage to turn the tables.It seems that  unknown hands are meddling in the affairs of SPDP. Whats more in the local dailies Mawan sounded very firm when he said,”SPDP will discipline any of its members who did or said things that could destabilise the party in the run up to its Triennial Delegates Assembly in December.

It is a known fact that Mawan is very close, infact inseparable from MP Tiong King Sing who is in the centre of the storm and this has greatly affected the reputation of SPDP as Tiong is the Youth Chief/Treasurer and also Chief Financier of SPDP. Mawan also did not mince his words when he said ,”he will come down hard on those challenging the status quo of top leaders come the TGA,and labeeled them as potential troublemakers tot he party.” So who is the trouble maker from within and from outside. There is a LEMON TWISTS EFFECT to all this happening in SPDP.

What is a Lemon twists? Lemon twists are most often used to garnish dry vodka martinis or accompanying espresso, but they can be used with many other drinks. They are used for both flavor and decoration. Some people attempt to cut a twist directly from the lemon. Nyarok was supposed to be challenged by Tiong and now it seems Nyarok has found a new ally in Entri.

The espresso effect has found new friends and whats more with DPM Muhyddin coming out with this statement ,’ He stressed that it is not only Umno which must transform, but also BN component parties.”We must be prepared to carry out an in-depth transformation to reach new heights in understanding.”

 The writing is clearly on the wall for those who fail to see the changes and cracks which are appearing in the BN family. From March 8th 2008 BN has been under attack for being too complacent and at times too arrogant for the people to accept  and thus the Voters turned their backs on the BN administration.

 SPDP needs to put their house in order as Sarawak State elections is around the corner and there are already indications that new faces are fast appearing to be the new BN candidates in order to ensure BN stays in power in Sarawak. Though the opposition parties are under wraps with too much infighting BN Sarawak will be under no illusion that all is vey well. Though the CM says 60 seats are assured the BN administration will be on their toes as when its TOO CALM an EXTRA-ORDINARY TSUNAMI might just happen.

The PKFZ scandal has in fact put SPDP in the limelight and with these turn of events LEMON TWISTSand HIDDEN HANDS being involved it seems we are in for some interesting political changes in Sarawak in the coming months.

Pakatan”BN SARAWAK SPDP,”Overheating..!!”

 

Our insider source says to Natasha of audie61,”SPDP is rattled as the upcoming TDC might see some changes.Whats more with Muhyddin saying that component parties needs to reform. This seems to be the PERFECT TIMING for SPDP to initiate changes within. The party is already tainted with their involvement of Party Treasurer crossing swords with MCA President Ong Tee Kiat.”

The source went further,” Will the legislators (YBs and MPs) just watch from the sidelines? Wont they just disassociate themselves from controversies? Even the Singapore  Miss World contestant was forced to withdraw from the pagaent to avoid shaming the whole organisation.

 The heat of the PKFZ scandal will be detrimental for the party itself and it remains to be seen whether the “..HIDDEN HANDS/BN WARLORDS..” will put their thumbs down and squeeze the RIPE PIMPLE( SPDP might be clogged or infected by Bad publicity) out to save the SMOOTH and CLEAN FACE of SPDP. BN SARAWAK needs to be as far away from a PKFZ scandal as possible as it will OBVIOUSLYand SURELY be used as an ISSUE.

The swirl on the ground especially within the BN family in Sarawak is that with PKR gaining momentum it is and will be a SORE POINT and if allowed to affect the coalition it spells trouble. The timing is absolutely perfect and Mawan a close confidante of the Tresurer needs to find a MIDDLE GROUND fast.  The sources told Natasha that the State BN Chief Taib Mahamud is also watching closely at the developements of the PKFZ as the MP is from Sarawak. The President of SPDP Mawan has to make a CLEAR STAND as he too might be dragged into the whirlpool and also might just be SUCKED IN DEEPLY.

SUPP might be hogging the limelight with the Dudong issue but SPDP will not be able to escape the media as the political warfare between Tiong and Ong does not take a back seat.  ... Sri William Mawan anak Ikom

The Overheating within the BN/SPDP needs to be addressed and there is even words from the ground that Mawan might just be edged out bythe LIGHT  BLUE COLOURS OF PKR  in the next state elections eventhough he is assured of at least 90% of the postal votes.

No one can be a HERO now and a BN ticket previously is a SURE 99% WIN FOR  A SEAT IN THE COUNCIL NEGERI IN SARAWAK.” It has oveheated and now the chances are but at 70% in the rural areas but in the urban areas its at 50/50.

Just a reminder to BN State assemblyman we wrote on December 22nd 2008 ,” Now the internet will play a bigger role in the decimation of information to the rural areas. It seems that now PKR knows that the information technology will be used to inform the RURAL areas of the CHANGES happening in the world and ensure that the dayaks are no more ignorant of the FACTS.  The TEAM has now looked into this strategy as all PKR information will be downloaded and PHOTOSTATED and DISTRIBUTED into the rural areas. Now with the influx of PKR dayak members into the fold these Valuable information will be an added PLUS. The PKR senior member sounds upbeat after talking to Natasha of audie61. “ALL IS AT A TOUCH OF THE BUTTON AND THE KEYPAD NOW” 

We say as always,”The political  battles  will  be stepped up for N41 PAKAN (9034) William Mawan ak.Ikom (BN-SPDP). The opposition strategists are closely monitoring Mawan and he must  know how to clear himself from this umbilical cord and not subject himself to the SWIRLING WHIRLPOOL

Chua Soi Lek”Su Hock Ee”

e1443cbfc5ee4d339a2c59108d6e48b2

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.

A political observer, who declined to be named, views the CC’s decision as a “smart tactical move” by Ong’s side to neutralise the sympathy factor towards Dr Chua for the EGM.

The suspension may cause some of the 2,377 delegates to reconsider their views and swing away from Dr Chua as he would only be a party member after four years.

After all, Dr Chua had said he wanted to die an MCA member, the observer noted. — Bernama

Cute..M$720 Million Refund

HellOooo..Am I Missing Somethinggggg..?? Would you just believe this? We made a mistake we are overcharged and now we need a refund. WHAT TYPE OF ADMINISTRATION IS THIS…?? Do you honestly think that the people are FOOLS. Even if they are they cannot be cheated over and over again and again. A fool today might just wake up to make you the GREATEST FOOL that ever lived. Please be more realistic. You made the mistake you pay for it. Get the Drift..Or am I telling it to a BLOCKHEAD…

The Port Klang Authority (PKA) today sued Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for RM720 million, a sum which the contractor allegedly overcharged for the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) project.

The suit was filed at the Shah Alam High Court this morning by PKA chairperson Lee Hwa Beng, who is the plaintiff on behalf of PKA.

lee hwa beng pkfz pc 210509 02In a statement today, Lee said PKA is seeking a declaration that interest charged on the balance purchase price of the land purchase was wrongly imposed.

He said KDSB had sold the land to PKA at RM1.088 billion at the rate of RM25 per square foot on a “special value” basis in addition to interest being charged.

“Interest ought not to have been charged separately and/or in addition to the said RM25 per square foot”, said Lee.

PKA is also seeking the court’s intervention and rectification of its schedule of payment to KDSB, as well as a refund of the interest payments made thus far.

Lee added that PKA’s decision to sue KDSB was made even before the establishment of the ‘super’ task force established by the Cabinet to probe the PKFZ scandal.

Lee warns that other suits would be filed for fraudulent, wrongful or irregular claims but did not name the parties concerned.

KDSB is the turnkey developer of the PKA owned multi-billion ringgit PKFZ flop, prompting the government to engage PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to perform an audit on the project.

Following the publication of PwC’s report in May, KDSB filed a defamation suit against PKA and the auditor for defamatory comments found in the report.

Amongst others, the PwC report claims that KDSB ‘may have’ overcharged PKA in the land purchase and overpriced the value of its works. WHO IS TO BE BLAMED..Have You Made up YOUR MIND..???

MCA-History,History,History..Lets See…

It seems that the Cabinet has decided to have a high powered taks force to investigate the PKFZ scandal was an sms received by Joey of audie61. This Malaysiakini report in which Ong Tee Keat speaks his mind and says that LET HISTORY JUDGE US. We reposts here…

The Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) fiasco has turned out to be a nightmare for the MCA, BN and the Transport Ministry.

MCPX

NONEDubbed by some as the ‘Mother of all scandals’, it not only involves a number of MCA and BN politicians but may also turn out to be the death knell for the political career of current MCA president and Transport Minister Ong Tee Keat.

As the cabinet discusses the task force report into the scandal today, Ong said that he had done his best in probing the case.

He claimed that the unpopular move has unleashed forces within and outside the government and his party in a conspiracy to oust him so as to derail the investigation.

“OTK be OTK. Whether they like me or not, I have my job to do. I am guided by my conscious. I am not guided by the popularity vote that people are deliberately attempting to portray me as.”

Conspiracy in high places

Ong has also singled out PKFZ’s turnkey contractor Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd’s owner, Bintulu MP and BN Backbenchers chief Tiong King Sing as working hand in hand with sacked MCA deputy chief Chua Soi Lek to stop him from getting to the bottom of the scandal.

Both Tiong and Chua have denied the allegations and they instead accused Ong of trying to glorify himself by politicising the PKFZ scandal and mixing it with the party matters.

Dismissing the claim, Ong said, “Nobody in the right frame of mind would choose such a way or such a path to glorify himself, when you have to brace yourself to face all sorts of allegation and hurl against you.”

“I have done whatever is necessary. People can judge and see what were my gains and what could I get from this. Am I going to play hero and enhance my political career? I don’t think there is any room (left) for my (political) escalation.”

Scepticism and opposition pressure

In an interview with Malaysiakini at his Transport Ministry office on Monday, Ong said when he first started the investigation on the RM12.5 billion fiasco, there were a lot of scepticism and the opposition did not have kind words for him.

“My true feeling is that when I first started it, people hammered me, even the opposition who has been purportedly championing accountability and transparency. Remember the kind of statements they made against me?

“These are the doomsayers, they pre-empt everything and said it is impossible and unlikely that I will be able to conduct a proper, comprehensive and genuine investigation. All sorts of things have been said against me. But I remain adamant and don’t even want to engage in any verbal spat.”

Veteran opposition leader Lim Kit Siang has been hounding Ong after the Port Klang Authority (PKA) released the full audit report prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) which details various malpractice and weakness.

Lim has been pushing Ong to declassify certain letters and correspondence in relation to the PwC audit report and make a ministerial statement to allow for a parliamentary debate.

The opposition leader has followed up by asking about three questions on the issue a day, which has annoyed to the minister.

We have done what is to be done

 

On the public perception that he is alone in pushing for the investigation and received little support from his BN colleagues, Ong refused to comment.

“I think that is not for me to comment (on this).”

He also refuted the claim that the government is reluctant to take action against the culprits and claimed that the only thing he cannot do is to arrest people.

“Can’t you see that after the PWC report (was released), what has unfolded? The (setting up) of three panels (PKFZ special panels), who are putting in hard work and solid work and they are independent. We have done what is expected of us.

“The only thing I cannot do is arrest people. I cannot do wonders (as suggested) by certain people to play the role of judge, jury and executioner. I think that by itself it is mockery to their own belief of separation of powers.”

Not proper to take flight

He also denied any improper relationship by taking free flights from Tiong King Sing’s company plane.

“Using his flights doesn’t mean that by itself is a favour. No. If at all anybody including me and others were to be offered a lift by third party, it does it not mean we have to ask beforehand ‘are you going to charge me?’

“Going back to the so-called failure to pay him whatever, if you had read through my statement, I said loud and clear, he is not the only service provider in the town. There is no element of favour involved. So far the question is whether or not the service provider has ever sent us the invoice?”

Ong has filed a RM500 million suit against Tiong for alleging that he had taken a RM10 million political donation from Tiong. But he confirmed that he had used KDSB’s private jet five times for “emergency purposes” only.

He said that out of the five occurrences, he should not be billed for one flight because he said he was “invited” to join that flight, while insisting that KDSB has yet to issue invoices to charge him for the service.

In an apparent bid to show that there was no conflict of interest, Ong said he also engaged the services of other private jet companies and not just KDSB alone.

Sex DVD much more damaging

Ong also took a swipe at his rival Chua Soi Lek who criticised his handling of the PKFZ fiasco which, lamented the sacked deputy leader, could pave the downfall of BN and MCA.

“At the same time it is amusing for me to learn that from him, if this is deemed as something that could bring down the BN and MCA, then how about the sex DVD? Don’t you think that is even more severe in terms of impact, not just to BN, MCA and even the country as a whole?”

Chua resigned from all government and party posts early last year following the eruption of a sensational sex DVD which shows him engaging in sexual acts.

He made a remarkable comeback in last October’s party polls by beating then secretary-general Ong Ka Chuan for the deputy president’s post.

However 21 months after the incident, MCA presidential council decided to expell him based on the recommendation of the party’s disciplinary committee.

The reason for his expulsion from MCA was due to him tarnishing the party’s image over the sex DVD incident.
Below is the text of the interview by Malaysiakini with MCA president Ong Tee Keat

Malaysiakini: Do you regret taking the flights on Tiong’s company plane?

Ong Tee Keat: Using his flights doesn’t mean that by itself is a favour. No. If at all anybody, including me, or others were to be offered a lift by a third party, does it mean we have to ask beforehand that are you going to charge me or what so ever?

Going back to the so-called failure to pay him, if you had read through my statement, I said loud and clear, he is not the only service provider in the town. There is no element of favour involved. So far the question is whether or not the service provider has ever sent us the invoice?

I don’t think anybody in their right frame of mind would ever do business like this.

There is wide public perception that there is lack of support from BN and your colleagues in dealing with the PKFZ issue. Some said that Prime Minister’s Office statement to support the investigations came too late for you.

I think that is not for me to comment (on this).

My true feeling is that, when I first started it, people crticised me. Even the opposition who has been purportedly championing accountability and transparency, but remember what kind of statement they made against me?

These are the doomsayers, they predict everything and said it is impossible and unlikely that I will be able to conduct a proper, comprehensive and genuine investigation. All sorts of things have been said against me. But I remain adamant and don’t even want to engage in any verbal spats.

Do you think you have done your part in producing the auditor’s report?

I have to be answerable to my own self as well as to my conscience.

But the public still perceives that there is still a lack of action (taken against the culprits)?

Can’t you see that after the PwC report (was released), what has unfolded? The (setting up) of three panels (PKFZ special panels), who are putting in hard work and solid work, and they are independent. We have done what is expected of us.

The only thing I cannot do is arrest people, I cannot do wonders (as suggested) by certain people to play the role of judge, jury and executioner. I think that by itself it is a mockery in their own belief of separation of powers.

So are you confident that the action will be taken? The case will be solved eventually? The culprits will be prosecuted?

I have done whatever is necessary. People can judge the gains that I could get from this. Is it that by doing so, I am going to play hero and enhance my political career?

I don’t think there is any room (left) for my (political) escalation.

But Chua Soi Lek says that the way you are dealing with PKFZ is going to bring BN and MCA down and only glorify yourself?

Nobody in the right frame of mind would choose such a way or such a path to glorify himself when you have to brace yourself to face all sorts of allegations and hurled against you.

At the same time it is amusing for me to learn that from him. If this is deemed as something that could bring down BN and MCA, then how about the sex DVD?

Don’t you think that is even more severe in terms of impact, not just to BN, MCA and even the country as a whole?

I think somehow politicians and non-politicians alike must learn that the norms and values are not something that we can simply distort at our wimps and fancies.             UPDATED    {  The cabinet has today decided to establish a super task force, headed by Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Sidek Hassan, to investigate the Port Klang Free Zone scandal }

Ah ..CHOooo..UMNOs Invicibility Threatened..

najib ong                  Natasha was sitting for a quiet Sunday lunch when an elderly Chinese politician gave her a tap in the back. He said to Natasha of audie 61,my nephews in Peninsular Malaysia are telling me this,MCA infighting is worse than the H1N1 Pandemic Flu. It is even being felt by the UMNO hierarchy and their CLOAK  OF INVICIBILITY is being THREATENED.. Will this Ah…CHOoooo (Loud Sneeeze) be felt by all the BN component parties in Malaysia.Its just a matter of Time when it will go full scale and they will not be a PATH for a return to glory days says the veteran politician. Great dynasties can fall and BN UMNO will only need to learn from HISTORY to avoid a similar journey…Ah CHOoooooooooooo…

MCA Crisis…Car Boots to Ballot Boxes

e1443cbfc5ee4d339a2c59108d6e48b2

Joey of audie61 said a lot of the main stream media are covering the MACC probe on Ong Tee Keat but the one that catches the eye today is the MCA duel of EGM between Ong vs Chua.

Ong said,”“Delegates can make a stance on whether or not they support the resolutions at the ballot box. And since their vote is a secret, nobody will know about their stance.”

However a political watcher said,”If Ong is so confident on the wisdom of MCA delegates he will not consider to Pre-Empt any moves.Just goes to show that he is truly worried as his inpenetrable fortress is being breached ”

What goes on BEHIND the scenes

especially with the VOTES is not for us

to know..

Ti-Ong Happy Merdeka..Not Your Way

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..!!! 

SACRIFICIAL_LAMB[1]       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.
