It was indeed a pleasure to meet a very down to earth gentleman like Dato’ Raja Nong Chik yesterday over a dinner which was organized by All Blogs Malaysia (Thanks to Abang Rocky)

Infact it was my second time meeting Dato’ Raja Nong Chik, the first was during an ASTRO Awani – ‘Pesrpektif’ programm where I and Dato’ Raja Nong Chik was a member of the panel, in fact that meeting was good enough for me to note that this was the type of man Malaysians need and I must congratulate YAB Dato Seri Najib for appointing a learned and a enterprising man like YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik as a member of his cabinet. His appointment into the cabinet would surely make YAB Dato’ Sri Najib’s agenda on 1Malaysia realized faster.

Following are some of the inputs that I have gathered about YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik;

  • His vision to make Kuala Lumpur not only a world class city but also a caring city is indeed commendable. He realizes the fact that poverty exist in the city and that steps are being taken to eradicate them as early as possible, thus, the CARING CITY

  • He believes that bloggers can help in promoting Kuala Lumpur and in fact he has offered to assist in organizing an International Conference for Bloggers. This offer was welcomed and accepted immediately by All Blogs and we can look forward for an exciting conference soon.

  • I was also impressed with his simplicity and how he explained that it took him nearly two (2) years to seek an appointment to meet a Minister. It shows at times, its not like what people think – if you are powerful and famous you can easily meet minister or top politicians.

  • I see him as a very simple man – net very much as a politician but more as an NGO person. However, I must say that UMNO must utilize his talents and ability to build a stronger UMNO.

To YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik – I wish you all the best and I am sure that with you we can develop and build a stronger BARISAN NASIONAL.

Want to join Parti Islam Malaysia – Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS)?

During the recently concluded PAS assembly held in Shah Alam, it was proposed that PAS would admit non-Muslims to become members of the party.

Very interesting indeed.

  • Can a non-Muslim member of the party make a decision to change the policy set by the party?

  • Will the party allow the non-Muslim member to hold important position like the President, Deputy President, Vice President or even the Secretary General, oh never mind all that, can the non-Muslim member be elected as a member of the supreme council.

  • After 55 years of having their assembly, Dr. Lo Lo Ghazali seems to be the only female member who has managed to win a seat in their highest decision making body. So it looks like, it may take another 50 years or so to get a non-Muslim to hold an elected position within the party – that means in 2059.
  • I not only find this decision as a desperate attempt to gain some publicity from the non-Muslims, but, it also shows that PAS does not trust Parti KeAdilan Rakyat – Malaysian Justice Party (PKR) and Democratic Action Party (DAP).

  • The so called ‘Pakatan Rakyat’ has already political party that has an avenue where non-Muslims can be part of the system; instead, they decide to have a new opening for themselves

I was interviewed today for a RTM’s documentary. They spoke to me about Malaysia’s so called ‘Social Contract’ and also on the Royal Institution.

Following are my comments;

  • Yes, we are all aware of the Social Contract although I have never seen a contract signed by anyone representing the communities in this country, but, yes I am aware there is something called ‘Social Contract’.
  • The Social Contract’s reference point would be the Federal Constitution’s Article 153 – as that is the only document which we in Malaysia can refer as the best reference of the Social Contract.

  • The Social Contract need to be revisited as I was made to understand that the Reid Commission which drafted the Federal Constitution have made a recommendation that after 15 years of independence we will review the Article 153 (which is the main crux of the so called ‘Social Contract’).

  • The success of YAB Prime Minister’s Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak’s ONE MALAYSIA would very much depend on the review of the Article 153.

  • The Royal Institution is an institute that should be respected and guarded by all Malaysians. We should and must not be ungrateful towards the Institution.

  • We have learned ever since school through the 5 Principles of the Country ‘RUKUNEGARA’ and the National Anthem ‘NEGARA KU’ on how important we have placed them.

  • The government should enforce tough penalties for those who insult this institution.

  • Most Malaysian’s are very proud to be a MALAYSIAN but then again a few MALAYSIANS with a mask trying to show that they are the sole crusader for their community challenge many of our traditional structure and crate chaos which then goes to the street.

  • We need to understand the simple meanings of ‘Gotong Royong’ or even ‘Muhibbah’. Many have forgotten the meaning of these words.

I have always thought that when an article is written it should at least have 500 words or more. Article is also defined as a piece of writing or even an editorial, but then, there is also another meaning that says commentary.

If you have been following my blog since the day I started to blog. You would have noticed that my article would have at least 500 words and from now no more.

Why you may ask?

There are many reasons to it, but the first on the list is off course Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and off course my ‘Abang’ Rocky’s Bru.

If you have read their articles, it has the 3 ‘S’ factors and I liked it.

What’s the 3 ‘S’?

Short, Sweet and Straight to the point.

Let me start today with My Views;


I have been asked a few times on this subject whenever I appear on a TV Talk Show and I have not changed my opinion since then.

I believe as Malaysians we have been thought from school to not only be respectful to the KING & QUEEN but to the nation as well.

Unfortunately, off late, for political and personal agenda’s a few Malaysians have decided to challenge the teachings. Off course, we have the right to do what we want to do; after all it’s a democratic country.

But, please do not tarnish the loyalty to the KING and The NATION.

Please remember, The Nation’s 2nd principle is the LOYALTY TO THE KING AND NATION and the 4th line in our National anthem says (And that) OUR KING REIGN IN PEACE.
