Tan Sri for what?

Update, Saturday: Hard-T has the full list of recipients, here. I got it wrong, Kali didn't get a Tan Sri-ship. But that does not mean his name was not proposed for the award, understand?
I would like to take this opp to congratulate the Yang diPertuan Agong on the occasion.

Tan Sri-in-waiting Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan, with 3 others, filed a defamation suit against me in January last year. If I were to comment on his getting a Tan Sri-ship tomorrow, people will say I am being personal.
I will, therefore, refrain from commenting. But I must say I have never before heard of so many people opposing someone getting a Tan Sri award from the Agong.

Check these blogs out:
Riong Kali be made a Tan Sri?
Tan Sri Kalimullah Hassan? So KJ, how?

p/s I am still undecided on whether to reproduce his classic pic ...

if this is true that Kali will be awarded a Tan Sri then all hell will break loose ! i just hope that Duli Tuanku will have some sense to actually reject the 'instructions' from the executive on this matter. what has gone wrong is beyond anyone's mind if this rumour is true that the PM can resort to this act - like come on a Tan Sri title is really only meant for those who has gone a great deal for Malaysia - yang telah menabur bakti dan jasa kepada nusa, bangsa dan agama ! like this is so 'lame' !!

Can't wait to see the classic pic tu...

Some people say he didn't pass his security vetting dulu. Itu macam pun leh dpt Tan Sri ke?

Is his contribution to the country equal to or more than our normal Tan Sris?

Titles honoring the recipients
For good deeds to help the people
Here in the country
It is more for favors
Nothing to do with charity

Our Supreme Ruler
He should know whom to bestow his honor
It can’t be given to anybody
Recommended by the ruling elite

Time Tuanku puts his foot down
He should honor those who have done well to the country
And social obligation to help the communities
He shouldn’t bestow honor on political connections
It defeats the purpose of his honor

He should make his honor
A proud tradition for the recipients
It shouldn’t be political or business reasons
The country’s honor then has no value

Tuanku should know
He mustn’t be influence by the ruling leaders
Time he listens to his people rumbling
Make his awards something to cherish and remember
For those who are truly deserving the honor

dong-dong said...

The impact if he is awarded this title is:

1.It will demean the prestigious status of Federal awards which have relatively been clean of much controversy in the past.

2.The existing Tan Sris will hang their head in shame.

3.people will sneer at him behind his back. Dont tell me he is so thickskinned that he really thinks he deserves it?!

Awards for everyone so far has been on recommendations of BN, otherwise we will not have so many good for nothing, Datuks and Tan Sris everywhere you turn. That's the reason we urge the Sultans, The Agong and Governors to maintain their dignity and stop giving out those titles to shameless corrupt people. Almost all the Datuks got their titles from giving donations to UMNO, MIC or MCA, none has truly earn their awards because of their great deeds. We already have more Datuks than Kerbaus who is worth more than the Datuks.
Not to worry EZAM and Kali will get their decorations for being ball carriers. Dollah needs all the moral boosters he can get right now. Birds of a feather always flock together, he has but one feather. We need another thousand more Tan Sris, like it is really worth a whole lot.

Oh my God! Next I think Pak Lah would pay ex-gratia and award a similar title to CPM's Chin Peng.
Pak Lah might even condemn our police and armed forces and apologise for the killing of the communist terrorists under Chin Peng.
Everything is possible now bro. Pak Lah will just nod for another Royal Commission and the next day any 'terrorist or similar beings' could be a Tan Sri.

p/s Won't be surprised if three months down the road the 'Little Red Dot's spy' is made a TUN.

Isnt this such a petty post?

How do you know he will get it? If he doesn't get it, you can crow victory but if he does, you can too for labelling him a Tan Sri-in-waiting.

Does it even matter if he gets a Tan Sri-ship or what ever pingat from the King?

Salam Rocky,

Ini rezeki masing masinglah, apalah semua nak bising bising. Apalah sangat dengan gelaran Duniawi, Datuk, Datin, Tan Sri, Puan Sri, Tun...mengapa kita tak bising kalau saudara seagama kita tak solat, tak puasa, ada duit tak nak bayar zakat tak nak tunaikan haji..

You all marah marah pada KJ dan lain lain yang saya tak tahu siapa, kata mereka semua kejar sangat pangkat, kejar duniawi (harta benda), tapi bila ada orang dapat Tan Sri, you all nak bising bising. Jadi you all pun samalah juga, mengejar duniawi juga dan pangkat.

Kita ini kadang kadang, kena cermin dulu diri kita sendiri sebelum mengata orang lain. Tuhan panjangkan usia kita supaya kita dapat mahasabah diri. Jangan kita terlalu menghina orang lain. Siapalah kita hendak menentukan rezeki dan qada qadar orang lain?

Mengapa kita mesti tidak rida dengan apa yang Allah swt kurniakan pada seseorang. Dan yang penting mengapa kita tidak bersyukur sahaja atas apa pun kurniaan Illahi pada diri kita sendiri?

Ada juga orang kata perkara yang sama bila Musa Hitam beroleh title TUN. Ada juga orang sangsi dengan sumbangan dan jasa beliau. Ada yang langsung sangsi dengan patriotisma Musa.

Tapi Musa macam Abdullah juga, buat tak tahu, jalan terus tutup telinga. Buka mulut hanya sekali sekala, itu pun untuk mengeluar bisa-bisa yang masih ada, dengan penuh dendam.

IF Kali is really to be bestowed a Tansri-ship, this will be yet again another case for the Rakyat showing that titles means diddlysquat.

I truly feel sorry for those "real" tansris and datuks who EARNED their honorific through years of serving the nation with distinction

However let's not just blame it on 1 kali-ship

How about self-serving biz men & the other crooks & scoundrels of this nation who has the same honorific? Have they not already cheapen the titles of Datuk, Datuk Seri and TanSris?

Dear Rocky,

I believe our PM was ill-advised for the few bad decisions and statements. Eg. groundroots are happy, can get zero oppositions, can get away with racist policies etc. I dont believe in his judgment and recommendation. Only leads to more problems including bringing down the 'prestigious' tag of Tan Sris.

Thank you, ChoonLee.

No such thing lorrrr..just another double (or triple) datukship for Riong Kali.

Fifty-one people receive the "Panglima Jasa Negara" (PJN), which carries the "Datuk" title, and another two were conferred the "Panglima Setia Di Raja" (PSD), which also carries the "Datuk" title.

Among the PJN recipients are Election Commission secretary Datuk Kamaruzaman Mohd Nor, Sikh Union of Malaysia president Dr Jasbir Singh, New Straits Times Press (NSTP) Group deputy chairman Datuk Seri Kalimullah Hassan and NSTP Group editor-in-chief Datuk Hishamuddin Aun.

At present if one were to go to any crowded place & call out "Dato'" as many as 400 heads will turn around !

A lot of idiots and crooks gets honured passing off as a Dato or even Tan Sri these days.

P/S Apa jasa Annuar Musa untuk diberi title Tan Sri?

Brunt Council said...

This out of topic, but need to ask you what happened to Tun Salleh?

Tun Dr M written in his blog, The Tun Salleh Saga explaining in detail. Matthias Chang had replied same day to Tun Salleh's response on May 25th, 2008.

Respondez Sil Vous Plait, Tun Salleh

It's now out in the open that there are two letters sent to the Agong. The first one is a ridiculous complain about noise from istana renovation and was sent to all the Raja-Raja Melayu.

Tun Salleh claimed in the second letter that he and hsi fellow judges are mentally disturbed. Thus, it seem approprite to remove those unfit for duty :)

The whole thing is your issue with the Agong affair and was done legitimately and accordingly. Where is the charges about UMNO court case that you mentioned? And, why didn't he defend himself?

Thus, he and his fellow judges shouldn't accept the ex-Gratia payment. It tantamount to accepting money for participating in a political charade put up to prop up AAB but has no legitimate and administrative basis.

Let me remind you.

You are a politician yourself. Politicians come and go, and they will change their stance, when a different wind blows. You are only convenient presently.

At least now, there are still those who belief that you are a victim or probably a martyr in the episode.

By accepting the ex-gratia payment, you will be remembered in the history book as compromising your own by accepting "bribe" from the corrupted philantropist Zaid Ibrahim!

The last thing you want is to have no one believing you on your deathbed!


Sdr Rocky's Bru,

The Deputy Chairman of NSTP is a highly decorated person.

But I was told via SMS by a fellow axed-editor that another person in the NSTP is even more highly decorated.

This person apparently has six datukship awards so far -- more than the bylines of some third rate reporter.

As for the Deputy Chairman, the award, if any, may be timely.

He is a sick person. For two consecutive NSTP's annual general meetings, he had to be excused because he underwent major surgery or something like that.

That's what we were told by Chairman.

Thank you.

The Star printed Kali as a PJN (2nd Class Federal Datukship) receipient.

Jawhar Hassan is the PSM (2nd Class Tan Sri) receipient.

They could anticipate the response from all of us perhaps.

What strikes me is that the Deputy Secretary-General for Cabinet gets a PSM (2nd Class Tan Sri), what about the PM's Department Senior Deputy Secretary-General? Isn't Sr Dep Sec-Gen higher than Dep Sec-Gen?

And the Chief Justice getting a Tunship.... Wasn't he appointed in December last year and scheduled to retire this Sep or Oct?

Under this regime, not just the running of govt has gone haywire, even the bestowing of awards too....

Tahniah lah Kali oh Kali. Soal kau deserve dapat pingat tu ke tidak tu, memanglah tak deserve. Tapi peduli apa. Sendiri isi, sendiri taruh sendiri punya nama lah. Hishamuddin Oun dapat Dato' lagi, yang ke berapa ya? Editor yang akan diingati sebagai paling banyak dapat pingat, tulisan dia tak ada apa pun. Dah banyak Dato' dia, mengalahkan orang lain yang memberi sumbangan besar kepada negara ni. Sendiri isi juga ke? Staff NST kata, sebetulnya anugerah tu untuk Manja Ismail, tapi dia tukar nama dia. Inilah yang tersebar. Terang-terang cakap, apa jasa Kali dan Hishamuddin ni? Ini lah punca orang mengatakan darjah Dato' ni tak ada nilai ...perasan. Orang marah pada Pak Lah sebab mereka, anugerah ni seolah-olah nak tunjuk yang Pak Lah memang pertahankan mereka. Pak Lah kena jawab benda ni. Betul cakap punya, kalau nak ikut jasa, Azwan Ali dan Aznil Nawawi tu lebih banyak jasa dari mereka berdua ni, walau pun kerja mereka bercoleteh ke sana ke mari.

Kali terakhir Syed Feisal dapat Datuk dari Pahang, itu pun atas ehsan seorang pemberita yang rapat dengan kerabat di raja Pahang. Khabarnya Syed Feisal minta pertolongan pemberita tersebut untuk dapatkan Datuk untuk beliau. Hishammudin hanya perlu ikut untuk buntut Kali untuk kutip pingat pingat ini. Syed Feisal ikut juga tapi jumlah bilangan tidak sebanyak Hishamuddin. Nampaknya Syed Feisal kena berlawan dengan Hishamuddin lah untuk pastikan siapa lagi banyak IB (ikut buntut).

I just don't get it,
why is it Kali gets a Tan Sri but David Arumugam of Alleycats who has enthralled us with his wonderful songs and voice get's only a JDM. If I am not mistaken that is not even a Datuk!

Rocky let's start a movement,

Address to the Sultan of Selangor.

Petition to Award David Arumugam of Alleycats Datukship.

Is it so hard for us to honour those who truly deserve it? majority of parliamentarians have an honorary title. Most of which without any credible reason, there is even a saying that if you toss a bunch of stones in a crowded place one is bound to hit a datuk (especially in the UMNO AGM). If we can honour businessman whose contribution to society is questionable, politicians who is about to serve their very first term and in some cases underground triad bosses then it makes me wonder why is it so hard to honour these men with the title they truly deserve.

These men (David and Loga) are in the same rank as P-Ramlee, Michelle Yeoh, SM Salim and those other seniman and seniwati. Siti Nurhaliza was given the honour at a relatively young age for her contributions to the arts and culture of our nation thus is it not an irony if the Alleycats are not given the same credentials.

Loga has passed away,
But let us not make the same mistake. I propose that our nation should bestow upon a datukship (if not Tan Sri) to both David Arumugam and the late Loga Arumugam for their great contribution.

P/S - One might say M Nasir has given more to the music industry, he is after all a song writer, write lyrics and build some other good talents as well. But then again David dah tua, kasi la dia Datuk...

Sabtu, 2008 Mei 31
Walimatulurus: Mat Ezam & Ummi Mariammah Nagore Omar
Pada hari Rabu lalu, sorang saudara lama aku, Mat Ezam melangsungkan perkahwinannya dengan bekas isteri lamanya, Ummi Mariammah Nagore Omar. Panjang sangat namanya! Baik aku panggil UMNO saja lah. Cis! Lagi tak sedap!. Ok lah. Aku panggil nama timang-timangan dia, Chom Bee.

Aku tak pernah tengok janda Mat Ezam ni, sebab aku kenal Mat Ezam selepas dia bercerai dengan isterinya. Masa tu, dia kahwin dengan anak saudara aku, tahun 99. Abang aku kawin dengan sorang perempuan Cindian, mak Cina bapa India. Bila abang aku dapat anak, tak tau nak bubuh nama apa. Nak sedapkan hati semua pihak, dia bubuh nama, Pauline Khairunissa Raj. Fair and square. Sapa pun tak kecil hati.

Tapi perkahwinan tu tak lama. "Susah ,Yob! Pagi nasi lemak, tengahari tosai, malam Char Kuey Teow, perut selalu meragam!" rungut Mat Ezam.

Bapak Chom Bee ni 'money changer ' kat lebuh Chulia. Depan Restoran Kapitan. Dah puluh tahun depa duduk kat situ. Sebelah kedai depa ada satu masjid, Masjid Nagore Shariff, sempena nama Tok dia. Bila Mat Ezam dapat tahu bapak Chom Bee dah balik keChennai, Mat Ezam rasa dia ada chance nak rujuk balik. Apatahlagi, semua bisnis orang tua tu dah pass kepada Combi. Meleleh la air liur Mat Ezam.

Aku dapat tahu, Chom Bee ni, anak penakan K.M Oli Mohamed. Bila aku Tanya K.M tu apa dia? Mat Ezam bagi tau, Kutty Mohamed. Aku kata, macam biasa dengaq saja! Mat Ezam jawab, " Awat tak biasa, khalu dia orang kuat kat Kedah dulu!"

Whoa! Mat Ezam ni jawa pekat! Tiba-tiba dah cakap Penang. " Dulu 7 tahun aku duduk kat Tanjung tapi Pak Mentua aku peghalau. Bukan aku tak sayang kat bini aku, tapi dah orang tua tu tak suka, aku nak buat macam mana?"

Majlis perkahwinan sepatutnya diadakan diMasjid India diLebuh Pitt, tapi pasai adik beradik Chom Bee tak berkenan dengan Mat Ezam, sebab dulu Chom Bee ditinggalkan semasa mengandung enam bulan, semua pakat boikot. Maka terpaksalah majlis perkahwinan dibuat dirumah bapa saudara Mat Ezam di Kuala Lumpur. Mat Ezam pun seronok la, tak payah pakai kurta, tak payah suap halua.

Tapi kesian kat Chom Bee, semua sedara dia tak mai. Nana-Nani, Khala-Khalu, Bu-Bai, Mamu-Mami, semua tak mai. Nasib baik ada sedara sekapal yang mai. N.M Reezal, Azeez, Kadeer Naina Mohamed, ada la sejuk hati sikit. Belah Mat Ezam pulak, aku tengok ada jugak beberapa orang tua buat tangkal. Opah Pidah pun ada. Wah! Mak Andam Hishamuddin pun ada!

Oleh kerana Mat Ezam kawin janda lamanya, majlis tak lah meriah sangat. Pulak tu mak bapak Chom Bee pun tak suka, jadi tak dak wali nak penikahkan depa. Terpaksalah cari wali hakim. Nasib baik Tok Imam Badawi setuju. Kalau tidak, naya saja.

Aku tukang bawak hantaran. Ada enam dulang, tapi semua serupa. Aku pun tak tau apa isinya. Mat Ezam jalan berlenggang bawak borang kahwin.

Tok Imam Badawi tanya kat Mat Ezam, " Rukun kawin ada berapa?"

"Lima!" jawab Mat Ezam.

"Tu rukun nikah! Aku tanya rukun kahwin." Balas Tok Imam Badawi.

"Dua" jawab Mat Ezam sekali lagi.

"Apa dia?" Tanya Imam Badawi.

"Beras dan keras" jawab Mat Ezam selamba.

"Whoa! Hapai no! Maklum la, dah tiga kali lompat, dah biasa la." perli Imam Badawi.

"Kita mula no? Tanya Imam Badawi kat saksi-saksi. Terkejut tengok saksi-saksi yang nak kawinkan Mat Ezam ni. Raja Petra, Hishamuddin Rais dan Hamdan Taha! Macam Royal Inquiry kes Lingam pulak. Isham Rais tu ada ayaq sembahyang ka tak dak?

Imam Badawi pun memulakan majlis akad kahwin. "Aku kahwinkan dikau, Mat Ezam bin Sugiarto dengan Ummi Mariammah Nagore Omar dengan maskahwin sebanyak lima ringgit suku, tunaaiiiii!"

"Aku setuju dikahwinkan dengan Ummi Mariammah Nagore Omar dengan maskahwin sebanyak lima ringgit suku, tunaaaiiiii"

"Sah?" Tanya Imam Badawi kat saksi-saksi. Semua angguk.

"Belanja hangus tak dak ka?" Tanya Raja Petra. "Ada, dua juta!" jawab Mat Ezam.

"Mana hang dapat duit banyak tu?" Raja Petra terkejut beruk.

"Ikut adat sebelah sana, depa yang bagi. Bukan aku yang keluaq" jawab Mat Ezam .

"Habih hang bawak apa?" Tanya Isham Rais.

"Hantaran, enam kotak" balas Mat Ezam. Senyap soh satu dewan.

"Bukak tengok!" kata Tok Imam Badawi.

Mat Ezam pun bukak kotak pertama. Tengok-tengok kasut tumit tinggi yang dah patah. Terkejut lah masing-masing, riuh rendah sampai Opah Pidah melatah.

"Opocot kasut aku mak kau pakai,Ishhh. Tok kau Opah aku!!" Opah Pidah melatah tak tentu keruan .

Kemudian dibuka satu lagi kotak. "Aaauwww!!!!" Jerit Mak Andam Hishamuddin. "Sampai hati, you. Nanti la. I cubit you sampai lebam, tauu!"

Aku tak tau binatang apa yang menyebabkan Mak Andam Hishamuddin marah. Mungkin Mat Ezam curi lipstick ataupun bedak sejuk Mak Andam. Aku pun tak mau tengok apa ada dalam empat kotak lagi.

Hangpa nak tau, pi tanya kat Raja Petra, Isham Rais dan Hamdan Taha.

Bila dah selesai, tibalah masa untuk menyarungkan cincin kejari Chom Bee. Yang ni aku teringin nak tengok, sebab aku tak pernah tengok muka Chom Bee.

Masyaallah!!! Bila aku tengok muka Chom Bee, ketaq lutut aku. "Macam ni yang Mat Ezam berkenan sangat? Rambut dah gugoq, kulit dah kendoq, gigi dah berteraboq, Astaghfirullahilazim!!!

Aku tanya kat Mat Ezam, dia jawab sempoi saja."Anak mami, got money"

"Hang kata kat aku, janda hang baru 20 tahun. Ni aku tengok kurang-kurang pun mesti lebih 60 tahun." Aku tanya kat Mat Ezam.

"Dia lahir tahun 46, tapi dalam IC tahun 88" jawab Mat Ezam.

"Macam mana boleh jadi lagu tu?

"Dia masuk ikut Sabah!!"

Correction to my earlier comment (10:46am).

The PJN awarded to Kali is a 1st Class Federal Datukship. The PSD is the 2nd Class Datukship. My apologies.

While we're talking about soothing ruffled feathers as mentioned in Marina M's comment, perhaps Mat Sarji getting a Tunship is to soothe his ruffled feathers for being demoted from Chairman to Deputy Chairman of Sime. If they wanted to reward him for holding the KSN's post why wait 12 years after he retired to give it to him? But then again no surprise here. This regime seems to be dishing out state and federal awards as a trade off of some sort rather than giving out the awards a gesture of gratitude for good service.

hahahaha ...Malaysian Chinese small time gangster chief...gets TUN ...and Indian ex gangster chief.... Samy Vellu..left out!!
Balls carrying TDM with 'sink or swim" poem...then let TDM swim alone...and balls carrying Dollah...until Malaysians make sure .he is voted blaming UMNO for MIC defeats. How to get Tun...offending UMNO?? Stupid Samy...he is...hahahahahaha
My goodness...UMNO..inherited the idea from Britain...go find out..which country give the most titles...which also can be bought.
UMNO mixed them up with the real deserving Malaysians..rightfully decorated...with their taxi drivers..gangsters..low class teachers...and many more....but then....most of them are hundred times more richer than those successfully professionals. Money is power!!
Datuks....Tan Sri...Tuns...for UMNO and BN ...who is a bigger crook....gets the better title.
That should inspire all UMNO find ways and means to get get Tan Sri..and finally a TUN...being the best of the best crooks....hahahahahaha

i think if there is visceral hatred for kalimullah, there is a damn good reason for that.

as far as kalimullah is concerned, rocky is one man who has been a pain in his butt and THE big one in his way to destroying the NST.

Kalimullah got rid of Rocky and destroyed the Malay Mail.

And made sure Rocky does not get work from anyone or any company.

Kalimullah sued Rocky and got his goons AND GOT THE NST to sue Rocky (and Jeff ooi) for Rocky's postings.

The man is a coward, in every sense of the word. ]
You think he dares to FACE Rocky?
Neither his goons.

See he fixed Rocky first for standing up to him. Now Rocky is just doing what comes naturally to anyone who's been "di-aniaya".

sorry..just thought i'd give you a perspective.

And Mat Maerah -- podah-lah.

This is not a petty posting.

In fact, I think if Kalimullah is given a Tan Sri-ship, the government should be EMBARRASSED.

Might as well give a Tan Sri to my gardener.

Kalimullah has done NOTHING to deserve a Tan Sri-ship..

Don;t be stupid, Mat Merah.

Hoi Nalatiwat, takkan lu nak samakan Kalumullah dan Hishamuddin Oun dengan Azawan Ali dan Aznil Nawawi je. Mana mereka nak letak muka. Takkan nak suruh mereka duduk dalam bilik pejabat sahaja. Tapi, betul juga ya. Kurang-kurangnya Azwan dan Aznil ada jasa dalam bidang hiburan. Dua orang ini ada apa jasa?

Peminat Aznil

What is the actual problem with Kali,really? I have met him on a number of occasions before he hit the "limelight" as it were and I did not find him "out of place" per se'.I am aware of the suit that was filed against U but is it possible for some background so that some of us would be able to ascertain some degree of "truth" and not resort to name calling & verbal abuse!
U c Rocky, I am of the belief that the Bloggers have become & are evolving to a very powerful but grounded group/alliance{despite / inspite}. Thus we continue to speak,write,exchange & help to shape our Nation & its physec'!
{SSheesh! I am beginning to sound like a politician!!!!}
Rocky, send me an e, if your "position" is teneous! Or call me, I gave u my card at the Boggers Event!!
Cheers!AA, C U Soon!
