In the aftermath of the Japanese Sendai Tsunami,foreign aid are quickly coming to assist their fellow humankind. Its good says a Japanese spokesman but they ‘outsiders” don’t know the country well and they only need to aid us while we lead to make the victims lifes better and help them in our own ways.This was what we heard from one of the television stations.
Even the USS Ronald Reegan has been sent by the US government to assist in the aid of the Japanese people in their hour of need. audie61 and the crew in our prayers are with the families of those who losts lives and have their homes completely devastated.
Our article today will be devastating to some while others might be rubbing their hands with happiness. Our dinner last night with Adenan Satem with a number of Peninsular bloggers was an eye opener. The minister told the bloggers that we need to know the history before we ‘spin’ or get excited by writing articles. In addition you need to know the geography of the country.
Sarawak is a vast country with as many as 27 ethnic races and the whole peninsular Malaysia can fit in nicely into the state. Though our population is small around 2.7 million as compared to the Peninsular Malaysia the state has a total land area of 124,450 square kilometer. For the information of those outside the state the major cities are Kuching and Miri while the smaller towns are Sibu,Limbang,Bintulu,Samarahan,Bau,Lundu,Serian,Simunjan.Betong,Sri Aman,Kanowit,Song,Mukah,Tatau,limbang,lawas etc.etc.
Many bloggers who are not from Sarawak don’t even know where the hell these places are. Some who have been here and done business in this state might just know the towns mention but some might not even know where Ulu Telian is.
Do you know where..??
Point No.1 goes to sarawak bloggers to lead. They know their topography and their landscape.
In the past few months there has been an influx of Peninsular bloggers from the BN and also from Pakatan group who have been seen moving in and out of Kuching. There has also been a number of workshops,seminars gearing the new third force “new media” to get themselves ready for the State Elections.
Pakatan group has enlisted professionals in the industry who are more than capable BN Sarawak boys of running for cover. Thier websites like Hornbill Unleashed,Dayaknation,dayakbaru and their ever growing usage of facebook to filter the necessary information down is very crucial.
Point 2 for Sarawak Bloggers to lead. Sarawak component parties in PBB.SUPP,PRS and SPDP has given a green light to start a BN Sarawak UMB to counter the allegations,accusations,and other untrue local stories which has appeared in the Sarawak blogsphere. Appropriate measures of getting the proper organisational struture is in place and is slowly being unleashed and will be full blown at the mosts appropriate time.
The Presidents of the party has even given the letters to the Prime Minister Najib Razak that the party has endorsed fully their names and their part in the cyberwar.
Don’t tell me now,the Presidents of the 4 sarawak component parties don’t know what they are doing. Are you doubting them..? Or I say, you do want to head the UMB for the respective party but unfortunately you have been overlooked…hmmm (They have all signed their letters to approve the appointments)
The Head of the UMB Sarawak by consensus has been given by the three UMB component heads to be under Aziz Adenan who is also the head of UMB PBB. There has been many unkind words of unpleasantness and there has been voices that some of his team are being poisoned to work elsewhere. A posting in this article will ultimately kill their lifeline off and they will curse audie61 till the end of their days. They know who they are and it doesn’t need an expert to point out their URL. They have even sent emails to a government agency who themselves think that the UMB BN Sarawak is headed in the wrong direction under the UMB head.
Even now they are so many pro peninsular BN bloggers poisoning each other and some has even reached the shores of Sarawak. An article by theunspinners.blog(Unraveling spin and lies) has left a bad taste in our mouth that is UMB BN Sarawak.
We have never doubted the leadership of Aziz Adenan and we will send him for roasting if he is not fighting for Sarawak rights in the blogsphere. Many know what the PM Najib has said in the SUPP rally that he will assist and the UMB BN Sarawak is putting together a team to engage the opposition Pakatan.
audie61 has even put out a few feelers in our articles,”Show us the money” which are directed to the ruling component parties that we need assistance too in terms of allocations.
The bloggers cannot think and fight on EMPTY STOMACHS. Can you now…?? They need to be taken care of and when their needs are being looked after their minds will be very clear to engage in the political cyberwarfare. They always say,” An empty stomach means an empty mind” You are agreeing with me right…!!
Point No3 Sarawak Bloggers to lead..Federal issues are not so hot in Sarawak. Local issues are the ones which will be fought in the hinterlands/longhouses/villages of Sarawak. Peninsular bloggers who were here last night talked so much about who have they taken down and how they do it.
Their unknowing arrogance is not something that Sarawak bloggers will take kindly on and if their attitude of these bloggers are not checked it will be very detrimental to the State component parties. Believe me….!!!!
The UMB Sarawak bloggers under Aziz will be able to lead Sarawak as our bloggers know how to engage in Iban,bidayuh,local sarawak malay,melanau and othe r languages which the peninsular bloggers will find it difficult. They are welcomed to assist and aid but they too need to know the meaning of AID. Please check……http://www.globalissues.org/issue/786/aid.
Point No4 Sarawak Bloggers to lead.. Who knows better than the component parties bloggers. Peninsular bloggers dont know where SPDP N69 Batu Danau YB is from do they..? They need to read up the area and they will not know how to come to the area unless asssited by the party boys or the agencies that require them. The point is that the component parties bloggers under the UMB BN Sarawak flag will know better what and how their YBs needs help.
In a recent meeeting with the relevant authorities and think tanks the Sarawak UMB team has been told in so many words that they will lead the battle and the rests will only aid. Pakatan bloggers are also relying on their local counterparts to give them information so that the news will filter to ground zero. UMB BN Sarawak welcome all the help that is offered but we need to be cruel to be kind and when the battle is firecely fought the outside bloggers needs to understand that we are not sidelining them.
A blogger even cheekily said that at the dinner unknowingly “the by election in Sibu the machinery of the SUPP team was not as expected.” SUPP knows their weaknesses and they are rectifying it and Najib has promised assistance and maybe ‘someone” smelt the “colours of money and try to capitalise on their weaknesses.
The Chief Political secretary to CM said,” bloggers need to write with passion and soul” and if they are in for the money only in the short term they will not be recognised by the component parties as an integral part of the communications and information bureau arm of the parties concerned. Blogs are not meant only during times of confrontation or blogwar but also useful to pass information to their divisions and cawangans/cabangs whatever names they are in their respective party constitutions.
That above is Point No5 Sarawak Bloggers to lead.. “Sarawak bloggers will have the soul to write.
Point No6 Sarawak Bloggers to lead.. There has been too many different versions of bloggers from Peninsular accusing each other of some management and monetary issues. We are not accusing anyone but the fact of the matter is that Sarawak bloggers dissatisfation are well under control by their respective party UMB heads.
We do not want to be dragged into their issues as such and PM Najib and CM Taib knows what is going on. The component Sarawak party leaders in George Chan,James Masing and William Mawan are also well informed and they are watching closely at all this unfolding in front of their eyes.
The UMB BN Sarawak was mooted to give the chance to every aspiring party members to fight for their parties concerned in their constituency and also to assist the BN Sarawak in totality. There is not much time left for infighting within BN Sarawak bloggers and UMB BN Sarawak calls on their BN Peninsular counterparts to respect the wishes and respect we give them but please do not overstep your welcome.
We try as much as possible to be accomodating but when the line is crossed without respect shown we will still be nice but the extend of our niceties will be felt. Our UMB BN chief has put his foot down and please show some respect as the Party Presidents have.
Don’t listen to wild rumours and audie61 will not for once support him if we cannot work with him and if he is does not show respect to the other component parties within Barisan National Sarawak.
Our final word is “lets work together for the betterment of the State and the country as a whole. You know who we are now and please come through the proper channel to have a piece of the action in Sarawak blogsphere.
Any more Points needed…????
