Kamal Khalid. Why did the 4th floor information chief call nearly 30 editors of the mainstream media to the Prime Minister's Department and dished out orders of what they can or can't report on the Abdullah-Jeanne wedding? [read my June 6 posting here].
A Voice claims to have the answers, which took the form of more questions. He leads us with his posting Arahan Kamal dan Risalah Norza terbongkar Ilusi Pak Lah which lead us spiralling into the world of crony capitalism and the infamous UN Oil-for-Food scandal that at one time implicated certain Malaysians linked to the present administration. The names Noni, Jeanne's ex-husband Othman, and KJ, among others, cropped up.
Norza Zakaria. Of the Risalah "bodoh" Norza, the blogger chides the amateurish attempt by the political secretary to the Second Finance Minister (Nor Mohamed Yakcop) to define - or redefine - Abdullah Ahmad by making the great Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad not so great in direct comparison.
I was told that book will be a collector's item as there won't be a reprint. Apparently, even the 4th Floor kids were shocked by the book's lack of finesse.
p.s. Like A Voice and Screenshots, I too spent quality time with Dr M yesterday when he welcomed our six Everest conquerers. I remember him saying that some people would cut your legs in order for them to look tall.

Samy pens poem for PM
Kuala Lumpur - Works Minister S. Samy Vellu wishes Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his soon-to-be bride Jeanne Abdullah be blessed with happiness and has penned a poem to commemorate their marriage on Saturday.
"I am happy to hear the news from Abdullah himself and wish him and his bride to be blessed with all happiness," the MIC president said in a statement.
From this day forward
You shall not walk alone.
Her heart will be your shelter,
And her arms will be your home.
A mountain needs a valley to be complete;
the valley does not make
the mountain less, but more;
and the valley is more a valley because
it has a mountain towering over it

Do you know where he plagiarised it from?
From This Day Forward
From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home.
"Blessing For A Marriage"
by James Dillet Freeman
"May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding.
May you always need one another - not so much to fill your emptiness as to help you to know your fullness.
A mountain needs a valley to be complete; the valley does not make the mountain less, but more; and the valley is more a valley because it has a mountain towering over it. So let it be with you and you.
How much cheaper can one get!

The art of a leadershipReplyDelete
It is to admit mistakes
And have gut to say sorry
Then go to rectify it
A leader doesn’t need to be educated
It is there for one so desired
Yet one must be able to stay on it
It doesn’t mean a free ride
When policy fails
As the market sentiments decide
The leadership must allow solutions to strike a balance
Or change it when it is untenable to carry it through
It shouldn’t be on race
It should be on the future of the nation
When advisors can’t understand it
These people shouldn’t be there any more
The leadership should find alternative
They should have the guts to say
“You guys should go home
Learn from the street guys
And don’t make mistakes again”
Yet we have seen
The educated ones say
Belittle the people
They think they are god or something
When mistakes done
Go out and say sorry
Have the guts change policies
When the desired effects never came
I feel sad for my country
When the leaders at top never see
Let the boys flying kites in the office
Knowing nothing about fighting spiders
Where the street boys did

Hahah...how true is that.Tun M is still unrivalled for his selection of words...a sign of a true genius!
This isn't just another Tom, Dick and Harry shot gun wedding in Las Vegas. If we do not officiate the wedding with the appropriate ceremonies, congratulations, pleasantries and news coverage, how in the world is our PM going to explain to all the foreign dignitaries when he suddenly appear with a new wife. Are we going down the same aisle as Prince Charles 2nd wedding to what that name (it is not sarcasm because I really can’t recall her name in a moment notice). v9ReplyDelete
They're getting more and more comical.ReplyDelete
Prince Charles got Camilla Bowl Parker, if I am not mistaken. My memory quite reliable, thanks to kismis and everything else except kari kepala ikan.ReplyDelete
but this is totally out mind thing. why would someone comparing PakLah to the greatest PM of all time? And, that someone saying PakLah is better than the greatest PM of all time?
this is getting lame. unbelievably childish.
norza, this is very bad. do it on your own, leave UMNO out of this mess.

Sedap sungguh apa yang Tun kata.
Nampaknya kata-kata "A short person needs a box to look tall" sudah tak sedap lagi! Sudah dekat nak jadi sejarah.
Watch out your legs, Bro!
Pls allow me to digress abit.
If anyone has an axe to grind with the infamous "monsterball" there is an upcoming post in simonscwee.blogspot.com where possibly his Birth Cert, IC, marriage cert/divourse cert, his company etc will be displayed.
Mr Smith's plagiarism deserves a new thread...this is really pathetic...
I already commented about the wedding in the voice's blog. Now about this Datuk Norzah and his "masterpiece". I have finished reading it last night. Wau... what a stupid book full of ampu and bodek!!!
Anyway, this is the kind of leech now sucking the PM's blood. The more this species is around the PM, the faster he will falter and fall. What a pity!!!
And I heard, more leeches are already around the new first lady. Watch out Malaysians, these leeches including with brand name like TEMASEK!!!!
Dear Simon Wee,ReplyDelete
You are getting pathetic. Is this how you try to get cheap publicity to your blog. Many of us commented on current affairs, local leaders, our PM and even All-Blogs for the sake of improvements and better understanding. It is a new art of conversation. But to malign a common man on public forum is despicable. Why don’t you try to look at his brighter side or just advice those offended by his comments to practice their right with the click (as quoted by Zorro)? Why don’t you put out your own particulars and let me judge you…moron? v9
How about this,ReplyDelete
"Some people would chop-off your head to look taller"
I wonder if the 4th-floor boys didn't want us to do some simple maths. You see, Pak lah said that he had known Jeanne for twenty years. I have to assume that that was when Jeanne married Osman. But she has two daughters. Twnety seven years old, one of them. Which means that she had a seven year old daughter when she married Osman. Whcih meant that the marriage to Osman was at least a second marriage. Whcih meant that PakLah could be a third hubby. Which is fine by me. But here's my question. Who then was the daughters real father? I'll stop here.
jangan busuk hati... tak baik... Allah marah...ReplyDelete
Goings by what read in the mainstream media, it is definitely not Khairy's.
At least that's what they the MSMs want you to believe.
The marriage is fine by me. After all it can be pretty lonely up there. In his personal life , I wish im well.ReplyDelete
BUT---after all this, does it mean there'll be TWO more son-in-laws for us to worry about ? OH NOOO!
Do you think KJ will wlcome the prospect of competition ? Will they work together (Heaven forbids and woe to the nation if this happens ) , or will they clash in the battle of the SILs.
I hope for the latter !!!!
Dear Simon Wee,ReplyDelete
I couldn't sleep well last 3 days. I wish to apologise for calling you a moron. I, too, shouldn't have judged you. I tend to go beserk when anyone threaten the sanctity of the home, business and family. Most of us work very hard for them. Sorry Rocky for infringing into your space again. Won't do it again. Thks. v9
biar tuhan menghukum mereka yang busuk hati.ReplyDelete
kami rakyat berHAK menuntut keadilan dan pembelotan!
sedia kah kamu hamba Allah bersumpah dengan sworn affidavit ke atas innocence Pak Lah, KJ, Norzah, dll ....?
