Another tirade against another Menteri Besar for "not helping"



Anita Yusof stakes claim as
"first Muslim woman to ride solo around the world on a motorbike" 

The Mole also wrote a piece based on the rider's Facebook entry after completing her 60,000km, 342-day solo ride. Read Biker Anita successfully circumnavigates the world.

Both portals, however, decided to downplay Anita's rants about the lack of help she got from the various authorities. In Azizulhasni Awang's thanks-for-not-helping fashion, the lecturer in Perak used her Facebook entry to lash out at, among others, a Menteri Besar for "giving me false hopes". 




I'm happy for and proud of Anita for having achieved what most bikers could only daydream about. But I'm also feeling a little awkward here. Because I was the one who linked her up with the MOE (Ministry of Education) back then over her wish to be accorded a cuti bergaji (paid leave) status. And I also took her to meet the Menteri Besar (of a State she'd rather not mention) at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur. The MB had seemed genuinely interested in what Anita was setting out to accomplish ...

Paid leave to pursue hobby?
The sense of entitlement of Melayu is unbelievable.

Biasa la Dato Rocky....ahli politik memang pandai tanam tebu dibibir mulut. Tengok saja slogan rhetoric mereka....Rakyat di Dahulukan...sebagai contoh.

UTC....satu lagi sandiwara untuk membayangkan bahawa 'Rakyat di Dahulukan'. Memang benar Rakyat mudah untuk bayar cukai pendapatan/perniagaan, semua bill utility, renew roadtax, lesen memandu & sebagainya....tetapi hakikat sebenarnya....Kerajaan yang paling untung. Di samping boleh kutip bayaran dengan lebih efficient, dalam jangka masa panjang, kerajaan boleh jimat WANG daripada sewa ruang pejabat, seperti di Komplek Pertama atau MAJU Junction. Akhirnya....kedua-dua pusat membeli-beli ini, kekurangan pengunjung atau prospect pelanggan.

Cadangan buka 'Ladang Ketum' oleh orang-kuat RISDA, satu lagi contoh bagaimana ahli-politik mahu mancari credit untuk diri sendiri. Jika Pegawai RISDA itu bertindak secara low-profile, sudah tentu 'ladang Ketum' akan menjadi kenyataan dan boleh beri sumber pendapatan kepada penoreh-getah & Negara.
Mana tahu...satu hari nanti Thailand atau Indonesia menjadi pengeksport terbesar daun ketum ke Eropah & Amerika. Masa tu...baru nak menyesal. Sudah tentu Pegawai RISDA itu akan mengutuk ahli-politik yang membantah idea beliau dulu.

Mungkin MatSalleh & orang kapir lebih tahu dari kita, keistimewaan & khasiat daun ketum sebagai:-
- pemanas badan di musim sejuk.
- ubat anti-tertidor tanpa risiko yang paling berkesan untuk pemandu lori jarak-jauh, misalnya.
- ubat-kuat yang boleh mengantikan Viagra.

Jangan kerana takut disalahguna, kita menidakkan sesuatu yang jauh lebih baik.

Sendiri mau ride, sendiri tanggung lah.

Nobody forces you to go on that ride. You go based on your own free will. You should raise your own fund.

And why is it that my money and other taxpayer's money be accorded to specially for her when there are so other well-deserving citizen of this country that can be helped?

Lemak lah this lady.

Speaking of bikers, is that your daughter that writes for CBT?

Boss,

She's deleted her FB account.

Now I'm getting very curious...which MB???

Badang said...

I bet her letter to various authorities will have the heading "Permohonan" and mentioned the word "bantuan". That does mean "hak" and "mesti beri".

Seldom the time it is not the Miister that is at fault but some government officer have other ideas or are complacent. Sometimes there are information apllicants do not tell publicly.

It is unfortunate that such commendable feat does not get much support when government waste money on events and even "makan-makan" for meetings and at Menteri level office.

However, should there be policies to determine what is the right criteria to sponsor such effort. Then again, if we have specific policies, there will be no flexibility.

Dear Bro Rocky,

Just do the necessary la. Go ask that Menteri Besar what had happened after the meeting. U will always get the first hand info, won't u bro? After u got the info, reveal it here so we as the readers can get to know why she's lambasted the Menteri Besar.

Memang tak patut MB tu bagi harapan palsu namun memang tak patut juga wanita ini mengharapkan cuti berbayar. Dah dapat cuti panjang pun kira bagus...kalau pekerja swasta, jangan harap.

sangat setuju dengan Syemey. nak cipta rekod peribadi maka keluar duit pun peribadi la.Apasal pula rakyat Malaysia nak kena tanggung?

seronoqmai said...

jangan harap , nanti tertiarap
jangan merayu, nanti layu
jangan mengemis, nanti tak manis
apa pun kalau buat biar dgn niat sendiri dan kemudian tulis buku dan jual,

She is from MOE and to do a solo ride with paid leave would be somewhat contradicting, I think. Anyway, she is the one who has to prove her solo ride would contribute something to Malaysians and not the sponsors who have to prove why they ought to coffer up for her. Not in my intention to offend any biker here. Me a retired biker....

Can't you read probably?
Or you don't understand Bahasa Malaysia.

She thanked the MOE for granting her unpaid leave.

You hatred for the Bumiputras must have made you blind.

She thanked the MOE for granting her 'Cuti Tanpa Gaji' and that means, unpaid leave.

Read that FB image grab, you SOB.

Your hatred for the Bumiputras must have made you blind.

Cuti bergaji penuh hanya boleh diberikan mengikut sebab-sebab yang dinyatakan dalam pekeliling perkhidmatan kakitangan awam, bukan suka2 nak minta. Antara sebab atau justifikasinya adalah cuti belajar, cuti sakit kesihatan dll yang selayaknya. kalau cuti sebab hobi memang kirim salam la..apa impak pada perkhidmatan melalui HOBI beliau?

Menteri Besar memang akan kata ya kepada semua permohonan atas sifat Menteri Besar yang prihatin, namun pegawai kewangan negeri perlu melihat peraturan2 dan kaedah2 untuk keluarkan duit/dana berkenaan. Sekali lagi mungkin tiada peraturan di bawah mana2 objek yang boleh dikeluarkan mahupun mungkin tiada ROI bagi negeri berkenaan untuk menaja HOBI seseorang

Jika semua permohonan beliau dapat atas sebab HOBI saya percaya ramai lagi penjawat awam akan ikut jejak langkah dia menggunakan basikal kereta pengangkutan awam utk keliling dunia dan kerajaan Malaysia melalui duit pembayar cukai perlu menanggung semua itu..mengarut
