He was sailing

Did Pak Lah go sailing Down Under during the Johor floods? Remember how the PM came and went in a blink during the worst floods in Johor last December? Datuk Seri (correct) Jean Todt may have let slip something very damning in his interview with the Star recently. Screenshots put two and two together and, Ahem ..., he wrote.
We certainly don't want to accuse the Prime Minister of having abandoned the people in Johor in pursuit of such untimely worldly pleasures. We know of his love for yachts but certainly ...

To Kamal Khalid and the 4th floor boys and girls:
I've said this before after we learned about Abdullah's discreet visit to Turky last year: you guys need to let the people know of the PM's whereabouts and activities at all times. He is not just your Prime Minister, he is all Malaysians' PM. So we Malaysians who pay his salaries (and yours, too!) have the right to know. Otherwise, you'll have the truth coming out in bits and pieces like this Datuk Seri (correct!) Jean Todt's interview, which is not going to be good for your boss!

For example, if his son buys the Prime Minister a new Learjet (not the RM200 million aircraft which the Government did not buy), Malaysians ought to be told. No, no, no .... I am not confirming that Kamal has bought his dad a new toy that can fly but if he did, then we all should be told.

    Can anyone get the home video of our beloved Lelahman during his infamous trip to Australia while Johoreans are learning how to swim during the water carnival last december and DHL it to "Ripley`s believe it or not" programme?

    Thank you for your coorperation.

  2. Rod Stewart - I am sailing. Great song. I love it. I wonder whether the song was played in his MP3 during the sailing session.

    nero fiddled while rome burned, badawi sailed while johore flooded.

    and probably wooing his lady fair jeanne then with songs like moonlight bay.

    We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay
    We could hear the voices ringing
    They seemed to say
    "You have stolen her heart"
    "Now don't go 'way"
    As we sang love's old sweet song on Moonlight Bay

    i m not surprise a bit. this guy doesnt get the title as the most travelled PM for nothing.
    well, we put him there isnt it. so, gotta accept his lifestyle. unless, there's enough of voters to tell him go and fly kite in the coming election.

  6. Sdr Rocky's Bru,

    1. Even if Datuk Seri (Hon.) Jean (John) Todd let the big bad cat out of the big bag, should the Johor people still be angry with the PM for making a lightening visit to them when they were soaked in flood?

    He gave them IDR. What else do they want?

    2. With many French-sounding names around, may I suggest that you hold an online French lesson -- for example, Jeanne is Jean (Jin) and Jean is John. Henry is pronounced something like 'onrey and Charles is sharl.

    3. I don't think we should complain or envy the PM's son for buying a Learjet,a "liarjet" or whatever.

    He is a wealthy oil industry tycoon. He has the money. If you can afford only AirAsia or Mas economy tickets, be thankful for Allah's gifts and mercies.

    That's your station in life. Blame it on your dad for not being Malaysia's 5th PM.

    If there's anybody who should complaint, it has to be a Scomi shareholder. But if that is Kamal's private money, that's his business.
    He can buy all the toys he wants.

    I would like to be positive. As long as the money is his, go ahead. Not Khazanah's or Penerbangan Nasional's.

    When he buys a plane, he needs two pilots. Hopefully he hires Malaysian pilots. He needs MRO services. Hopefully he uses local MRO services.He pays landing and parking fees. Hopefully not FOC.

    There're useful spinoff effects in the PM's son owning a jet plane.

    John Labu, who says -- I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again, oh bade i hate to go?

    BTW, whatever happens to that Sri Lankan businessman? He's staying too long in Kamunting on account of our tax money.

    Let's look at it this way. What could the PM do even if he stayed forever with the Johor people during their big flood?

    The PM could not stop the flood.

    He is not Noah to build an ark.

    But sailing on a yatch was easy, especially if you had fine company like Jean (John) Todd.

    BTW, in case you feel like doing your own sailing, I have a 10-ft fiberglass sampan in a pond somewhere!

    Salam Eid Mubarak once more Bru. Take it easy man!

    gee, I'm so glad you find all this so funny.
    john labu...hahaa. those people in Johor during the floods hahaha drowned while learning to swim. sure wasn't the kind of Pesta Air that we'd like to be part of. sure wasn't Pak Lah's cup of tea! He had beter things to do in Australia!

    Umno should be ashamed for excusing a sham of a leadership.

    i have said this once , i've said this many times before.
    this country is being run by some green callow hidung berhingus boys who might have been good in school but hey...running the country is not playing monopoly. Worse, they got an assshole pseudo media honcho in a mainstream media helping them.
    so what can we expect?

    i know i won't be voting the BN next election. I aint letting some vile idiotic clowns stay longer IN the corridors of power. of course, despite this, unfortunately they'll still remain..but at least we can say that we have tried.
    and people, i promise you... I am NOT alone.

    (sheesh.... what a relief to know that i am not from another planet.)

    You can't hide the worms forever. One day it will ooze out of your mouth , nostril, ears,eyes, arse and prick ! Compliments from the curses of the people who suffered in the flood while you were having your australian-cooked nasi kandang and siling the seas with your frenchie millionaire.
    Maybe one day they can all celebrate and rejoice when hes lying sick in bed.

    People don't forget that easily Dawi !

    May Allah show the truth--however worse it may be. Amen.

  11. Just don't get it, any right-minded leader would be the first one to lead any search and rescue, food convoy, temporary shelter operations etc in time of crisis like a major flood.

    Just like the head of a family, company or a state, you cannot leave it to your people while you go sailing.

    Truly disappointed if what was written in the Star is correct, Mr PM. This is not about racial or religious issues, this is about humanitarian issue and you were not there for the people of Johor.

    Most unbecoming of a leader of a country to go sailing while there is a disaster at home. I have yet to hear or read about such events in other parts of the world.

    Even President Bush went to the aid of hurricane victims in New Orleans when people needed a leader most.

    Rocky and all,

    If any of the PM's children and/or the spouses bought any business jet, it is their private matter.

    However, if the Government or any of its controlled agencies and/or companies, like RMAF or PMB, bought a VIP jet such as the BBJ or A319CJ, then the people should be told. This is because the acquisition is using funds from Government coffers or companies which belongs to the Government. Therefore, the rakyat have the right to know.

    I laud your call to Kamal Khalid & co, at 'Tingkat Empat'.

    If he or any of his people is reading this message (also to other readers of Rocky's Bru),

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

  16. Oh moonlight bay
    The Dollah sings his way
    Sailing on his yacht
    Forgetting about the floods

    The storm brewing
    What more he wants to say?
    He wants to sing his way
    To his lady on moonlight bay

    You can’t hide
    The truth will come out to say
    Dollah tries through his 4th floor boys
    Pin up story sick on the bed

    Oh on an island back home
    I know a place back in the country
    On the island of legend
    There is a beach
    Once the locals called Moonlight Bay
    Sandy beach quiet place
    Now hotels sit on it retaining the beach

    The Dollah sings his way
    “I want my lady to stay with me
    On Moonlight Bay
    I have you for all my days”

    Q. Did the two Datuk Seris sail on Patrick Badawi's yacht?

    Copyright 2007 News Ltd. All Rights Reserved

    * YACHTING -- Neil Smith
    The Monsoon Cup in late November, which is ace Cottesloe world champion match racer Peter Gilmour's favourite regatta, looks to be the clincher of the world yachting title again this year.
    Victory in the Malaysian leg of the world match racing tour, introduced only two years ago at Kuala Terengganu, is worth 200 points.
    The Cup has many links with Perth, with most of the judges, race organisers and administrative staffs recruited from the WA Yachting Foundation and Gilmour involved in the original concept of the regatta and the design of facilities.
    One of Malaysia's big property developers, Patrick Lim -- who was educated at Aquinas College and Curtin University, has a home in Applecross, and keeps an Etchell yacht at the South of Perth club -- persuaded Gilmour to help develop the Terengganu Heritage Bay Club, a Club Med-style resort that has attracted Ferrari Formula One team boss Jean Todt and Michael Schumacher as residents. Apart from creating the Monsoon Cup regatta, the pair has built a paradise for yachtsmen and women from throughout Asia.
    This weekend's Stage 12 in the world title, the Latium Match Cup outside Rome, has a $200,000 prize and has attracted five of the top 10 skippers.
    Six teams represent syndicates from the 32nd America's Cup, which was contested in Spain.
    Entries are Williams of Team Pindar, Mathieu Richard (France) of Saba Sailing, Paolo Cian (Italy), Sebastien Col (France), Gilmour of Professional Sailing Team, Magnus Holmberg (Sweden), James Spithill (Sydney), Luna Rosa of Challenge Sailing Prada, Sten Mohr (Denmark), Michael Hestbaek (Denmark), United Internet Team Germany, Ian Ainslie (South Africa), Victor Lanier (France) and Jure Orel (Slovakia).
    Remaining regattas are Stage 13: October 9-14, Bermuda Gold Cup, Hamilton, Bermuda; Stage 14: November 13-18, Brazil Sailing Cup, Vitoria, Brazil; and the Monsoon Cup from November 28 until December 2.

    This PM takes more holiday than the days he 'works'. yeah nothing much he can do by being in Johor but the least he can do is cancel his plans and be in the country since he loves the country and he wants us to work with him. But hey the holidays we planned much earlier and he did one day lightning visit after so much hue and cry which was good enough for him.

    what kind of leader is Pak Lah? A useless one IMHO, holidaying while people suffer. Worst than Bush.

    a jet, well his money, who cares. But did he get his money the wrong way if so,we have a right to know.

    Pak Lah is the worst PM we have ever had. he is bringing the country down. Time to do something people next election!!!

    It aint that easy bro. It is all about Umno, which is rotten to the core. Only Umno can make the difference. Not us or even the 3.8 million Umno members, but the 1,600 Umno delegates. These idiots will vote Bodowi Again, I tell ya. It is all about money.

    Votes will be given to the highest bidder. And who are the ones in a position to dish out favours if not for the incumbents? Pak Lah has an inexhaustible war chest oredy….for the coming elections & the party election.

    Dishing out money to the 1,800 pary delegates is nothing, innit, when you oredy have millions in yr war chest.

    I am with mustang. Like him, I know for sure my vote will not go to the BN or if I may be more specific to UMNO.

    And like her/him, at least we can say that we have tried.


  29. Of course, whoever can afford please do so. Again, if PM goes out on official trip, then public should know.

    Kalau lawatan peribadi.. itu hal sendiri la. Macam orang lain jugak, kalau nak indonesia ka, siam ka, china ka... selagi boleh sorok, memang nak sorok. Tapi kalau semua ok..apa nak sorok.

    It reminded me in one visit Japan in see the PM's daily itinary for the day is published in the newspaper complete with the allocated time spent for office to do his office work.

    Why not for Dolah? Lets even provide leeway for him to have a nap in the afternoon or late wakeup so that we are aware that he was never meant to attend a book launching ceremony.

  31. My house in Muar have no piped in drinking water for more than one week. Electricity is out most of the time. And we are considered one of the better ones. Many got it worst.

    My leader would stop whatever he/she is doing and come down and make the presence felt.

  32. Oh ya, remided me of the initial days of George W Bush before he stuttered to his role post 911. If you check out writtings then, he was the American president who likes to take holiday and 'work' from his ranch. I think he was caught on video by MIchael Moore on one of his hunting trips when he was supposed to be working.

    The people of Malaysia and specifically the flood victims of Johor demand an explanation from you why you choose to go sailing when you should be leading the rescue , evacuation and food distribution activities in time of crisis.
