Hukum Rimba

June 29, 2008

Di kempen-kempen pilihanraya lepas, aku sering terdengar ungkapan “Rule-of-The-Jungle” dihurai oleh para propagandis bagi menghentam lawan mereka..

Apabila aku menonton semula Dokumentari Ini (Snuff Film) , baru aku sedar bahawa rule of the jungle yang dimaksudkan, memang bersifat kebinatangan, ganas dan tidak berperi kemanusian..

Jangan Boros

Eh, den ajak melabur kenapa lari? Kliklah dulu ayat ini..

Kisah seorang Budiman.. (cucu cicit Haji Bakhil agaknya)..

One afternoon a wealthy man was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.

Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.
He asked one man ‘Why are you eating grass?’
‘We don’t have any money for food,’ the poor man replied. ‘We have to eat grass.’
‘Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you’, the wealthy said.

‘But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree’.
‘Bring them along,’ the lawyer replied.

Turning to the other poor man he stated, ‘You come with us also.’
The second man, in a pitiful voice then said, ‘But sir, I also have a wife and Six children with me!’
‘Bring them all, as well,’ the lawyer answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task,even for a car as large as the limousine was.
Once underway, one of the poor-fellows turned to the lawyer and said, ‘Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.’
The wealthy man replied, ‘Glad to do it. You’ll really love my place; the grass is almost 1 metre high!’

Lesson Learned : There is only one kind of wealthy men.. Agree?

New Dictionary Word

June 18, 2008

Received this from forwarded email. Let me know if you know the author so i can credit him/her for that, but looking at the new dictionary term, i guess no one will claim as author for now.

There are possible plans underway to apply to the Oxford and Webster to include a new word for their 2009 dictionary:

badawi [baa-daa-wee] (noun): To start something full of promise but end in disappointment, failure and/or disaster.

Eg:

‘I’m trusting you to perform this task well; don’t do a badawi, ok?’

‘Whatever I do, I will always find a way to badawise it.’

France badawied their Euro 2008 campaign. England pre-badawied theirs, while Italy were guilty of over-badawification.

Malaysiakini: 2,000 play ‘cat and mouse’ with cops

Here (Malaysia) Is My Home

June 11, 2008

A group of Malaysian artistes got together one fine day and made an anti-racism song and music video.
………….

….Pete was bored. so he telephoned a few friends instead. “How about getting together to make an anti-racism song and music video?” All said yes without hesitation. Not because Pete threatened them with a rusty knife. only because they love malaysia.

The contingent swelled to 52 people a few days later. It included filmmakers, dancers, singers, producers. musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, footballers, activists, celebrities, students and a florist. Nobody would be paid. Yet they were enthused. Not because they were high on speed. only because they love Malaysia.

They gathered to record the song. It had a catchy chorus and was able to induce a mass sing-along. everyone was happy when it was done. They named it ‘here in my home‘. Then more people joined. The party now included more than 120 people. But the budget remained exactly zero. It seems even the spreadsheet loves Malaysia.

Everyone turned up for the video shoot. Much fun was had and friendships made. Video editors went to work after the shoot was done. Both the recording and the video would be given away for free. A gift to the nation. from those who love Malaysia to those who feel the same.

Did you ask what this is all about?

It’s about love.

This is a beautiful project and really reflects what a majority of Malaysians feel and want — released from the shackles of racism. We congratulate the 52 people who created this project.

Menangani inflasi dengan sabar dan proaktif

Menangani inflasi dengan sabar dan proaktif

Barang Naik..! Inilah fenomena yang digerun, dibenci dan sering disebut-sebut rakyat..

Walau bagaimanapun, tidak dapat tidak, kita tidak dapat lari darinya.. Walau beribu laungan kesal sudah dijeritkan.. Walau beribu jasad berontak sudah dibelasah, disimbah teruk, di setiap perhimpunan.. Walau beribu baris bait-bait keperihatinan sudah terseru, tetapi tidak diendah, malah terus didera dan terpenjara – Namun, INFLASI tetap merangkak tiba, menghampiri kita bagai kabus beracun, menyelubung gelap sara hidup yang selama ini tidak berketentuan..

Ini senario semasa kita, di negara yang dahulunya makmur tetapi sekarang, bagaikan mahligai-mahligai kristal yang “retak-menunggu-belah..” Penghuninya terpinga-pinga akan sebuah jawapan, dalam kemelut yang tidak berkesudahan..

Sementara kepimpinan yang dipertanggungjawabkan dan aktivis yang dipergiat asyik menuding jari sesama mereka, kita, rakyat yang “tercubit” dengan permasalahan ini, harus ada jalan keluar di kadar segera.. Kita harus licik dan berikhtiar supaya tidak terjerumus ke dalam perangkap pihak-pihak yang sentiasa ghairah untuk “menceriakan” suasana Barang Naik, demi kepentingan tembolok mereka..

Kita harus juga maklum bahawa dalam sejarah 50 tahun kemerdekaan Malaysia, bahawa apa jua desakan-desakan bagi mengurangkan inflasi adalah satu langkah yang tidak memadai dan tidak pernah berkesan.. Apa yang perlu adalah, kita sebagai rakyat harus memikirkan kaedah sendiri untuk terus hidup dan tidak terkongkong oleh belanja asas yang akan terus naik dan naik sampai bila-bila.. Bagi tujuan ini, kita harus bijak untuk menentukan sama ada kita harus bekerja-keras atau bekerja-bijak (work-hard or work-smart) demi survival kita sendiri..

Arahan “ubah-corak-hidup-anda” harus diertikan semula sebagai satu anjuran merubah kaedah menjana pendapatan untuk diri kita yang jauh lebih rendah dari kos sara hidup sebenar di Malaysia.. Kita perlu mendidik dan memimpin diri kita ke satu konsep kerja berasaskan pengertian work-smart.. Dan, kita perlu mendidik dan memimpin diri kita secara holistik dan berani ke satu konsep hidup berasaskan pengertian live-smart..

Puaskah hati anda jika ada orang memberi pancing supaya kita pandai memancing, dan tidak meminta-minta ikan?

Iya, semua akan mengangguk setuju apabila unjuran ini diketengahkan oleh berbagai pihak.. Tetapi, mengapa pancing? Mengapa bukan JALA serta “kaedah menebar JALA atau PUKAT TUNDA? Bukankah pulangan yang terhasil lebih menguntungkan dan bertahan lama? Adakah rakyat Malaysia bermentaliti “pancing” bila berfikir tentang ekonomi? Maka, tidak hairanlah rakyat Malaysia sering terperangkap apabila berlaku krisis ekonomi..
