Tributes for Yasmin Ahmad, The Most Favourite Malaysian Film's Director

I was really shocked and suprised when i saw the demise of great storyteller, Yasmin Ahmad. A few days before, it is reported that she was in stable condition after the major surgery but today, i'm felt like crying within myself because Malaysia just lost the great asset. Michael Jackson and Farah Fawceet left us not too long ago. Today, we mourn the loss of Yasmin Ahmad. I started to be inspired by her movie, Talentime. That's actually quite suprised because before this i'm not really a big fan of Malaysia (lately due to boring themes!!). She never fails to produce such divine and meaningful ads for fellow malaysian.To me, she is an inspiring soul for Malaysian. We have lost someone great who has given us love in such unique way not only through commercial ads as well as daily life routine of Malaysia. I will never forget you, Yasmin and may god bless u. YOU ARE TRULLY WONDERFULL & TALENTED DIRECTOR of Malaysian. You are the 1-Malaysia Soul.

SIFE National Competition, Fabulous!!!

Fantastic and Fabulous!!! That's my word to represent SIFE National Competition held at PWTC, Kuala Lumpur in 20-21st July 2009. This is 1 of my favourite list of events that i really want to attend. WHY?? expanding my networking as well as making friends with other local universities (part of my hobby!!!). Thus, by joining this national competition, i can be recognized as a part of "eligible" bachelor in Malaysia who represented our University (*evil grin*). Being part of the established presenter, I think We're the Pioneer for the Spirited team who continuosly performed in "confidence" and "Convincing" for all the judges. That's merely opinion and talking about our LOST, we're lost because of the "not-so-impacted" projects. Other local universities, Their projects were really impacted through the whole society as well as their technical presentation reached to the "maturity" level where every single person in the team play their own tasks. Our team not even a hitch OR on par with them in terms of that BUT We give them a very high competition to win for the final round's admission. That's really good to say!! ( That's just to calm myself!!ahaks!!). Let's talk about SIFE, probably certain people don't really know about it. What is the SIFE???

Khairy, THE MAN OF PRIDE??!!

Reverting to Bahasa Malaysia for the teaching of science and mathematics surely the hot topic to be discussed among us. But, let's talk about something else and i'm prefered to look to this fresh Malaysian Politician, Mr Khairy Jamaluddin, the son-in-law of Tun Abdullah Badawi, former prime minister of Malaysia. Below are the details.

~Personal Profile~

Name : Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar

Position in UMNO : Chairman of UMNO Youth's wing

Formal Position : Member of Malaysian Parliament in Rembau

Born : 10 January 1976 (currently aged 33), Kuwait City, Kuwait

Education : University of Oxford and University of College London (Higher Education),
United World College of South East Asia in Singapore (Secondary Education)

Profession : Journalist

Spouse : Nori Abdullah Badawi

~Background story~

Khairy is the only son of former diplomat Dato' Jamaluddin Abu Bakar and Dato' Rahmah Abdul Hamid. Khairy's late father, Datuk Jamaluddin Abu Bakar, was a senior official in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, retiring as the Malaysian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. Khairy's mother, Dato' Rahmah Abdul Hamid, has been heavily involved in volunteer work throughout her life. In October 2001, Khairy married Abdullah's daughter Nori Abdullah. The couple have two sons, Jibreil Ali Jamaluddin Abu Bakar and Timur Abdullah Jamaluddin Abu Bakar.

~Political Views~

Journalistic Independence and the Printing Presses and Publications Act

Khairy believes that Malaysia should and could repeal the Printing Presses and Publication Act, and abolish the annual Home Ministry licensing requirement, through the creation of an independent body which will enforce a self-regulatory mechanism similar to the United Kingdom’s Press Complaints Commission

Internet Censorship

In August 2008, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission, blocked access to the popular site, Malaysia Today. Khairy spoke against the move, citing that the move was a “blatant and crude employment of state power” and “is inconsistent with the widening of democratic space.”

Teaching of Maths and Science in English

In September 2008, Khairy called for the reversal of the policy, citing that the policy had failed and only caused burden to students.

~Controversies and Criticism~

Allegation of undue influence by former Malaysian Prime Minister

Khairy is perceived as too close to the halls of power, and has been singled out by former Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir as an undue influence. On this allegation, Khairy replied that "I am a pretty easy scapegoat. [But] the decisions Dr. Mahathir is unhappy with are entirely made by the Prime Minister and the cabinet."

Alleged affair with Maya Karin

In August 2006, it was alleged in the media that Khairy had taken the popular Malaysian actress, Maya Karin as his second wife. Both Khairy and Maya strongly denied this.

Allegation of bribery for the UMNO Youth Chief post

In 2009, Khairy contested as a candidate for the new UMNO Youth Chief after his predecessor, Datuk SeriHishamuddin Hussein released his position. He was rivalled byMukhriz Mahathir and Khir Toyo. However, a controversy was sparked when Khairy was allowed to contest for the post even though he was found guilty for being involved with money politics by the UMNO Disciplinary Board while others who were found guilty for the same offence, such as Mohd Ali Rustam who was supposed to contest for the UMNO Vice President post, were not allowed to contest for their respective posts. However, Khairy denied the allegation, as stated in his blog. Nevertheless, Khairy's name was not included in the latest Malaysian Cabinet Minister line-up of the newly appointed Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak.

My Comment : First time when i heard his name, YEAH!! i remembered this guy because he's the most controversial guy alleged in UMNO's bribery and affair with Maya Karin. Furthermore, he's very closed to the halls of power where he's the son-in-law to former prime minister. Somehow it leads himself to certain "bad" controversies. BUT, somehow, i see this man as the man of PRIDE due to his passionate in politic field and "right of freedom" in Journalistic independence. Admit or not, He's the talented guy on his own field and i adore his enthusiasm. Thus, "The man of PRIDE" title shall be confer to him and i believed, he has the big potential to become the most influential political figure in Malaysia.

MJ's Legacy

10 days passed since our beloved king of pop, african-american singer, michael jackson or michael joseph jackson or mikael (muslim name) has been passed away and untill now, almost every radio station play his memorable songs. Hi, again i'm back to write my latest thought. Untill now, i'm still caught by suprised due to the news of MJ's death. On 26th of june, afternoon time, still shocked when heard hunny madu, fly fm Dj informed to the listerners about MJ's death due to cardiac attack and collapsed at his rented mansion. In that time, i'm asking myself whether this is kind of jokes or prank by certain medias.

Anyway, everything solved once hunny madu repeated again the same topic. Then, i started to make myself to believe this is actually the truth happened to him. Later, i stucked at Professional Hairstylist at Sg. Wang Plaza n met the biggest fan of MJ. spirited-man with MJ's collections of goodies n CDs. But still he's dissappointed because he can't make it to MJ's concert at Malaysia, 1997. That's pretty bad n pity to him. So, i suggested that he should convey his grievance through MJ's official website. "Hell,Yeah!! I should do it now!!" he said.

That's how MJ's influence to Malaysian. Even he's gone now, his legacy will live through this man's vein. Anyway, since the day he passed away, almost everyday i can heard his songs here, even every CD's outlets made bulk of $$ by sold-out MJ's Collections. Nevermind, Mj's blessed you guys. Well, everyone will die soon or later. Just prepare yourself, that's all. :)
