  1. BERSIH kini bukan BERSIH yang dulu. BERSIH sekarang sudah pancit. Tiada momentum yang diharapkan seperti sebelum pilihanraya yang lepas.

      • What do you expect when BERSIH kini under the direction of Mr. Anwar ??? To many fence sitters, BERSIH kini = opposition sandiwara !!! BERSIH sudah kurang bersih !!!

    • Gerakan K.
      You should learn from this 70’s commercial. No pretension. Can’t simply buy over brand (vote) with money. Malaysians now are like this housewife in the commercial. And you know what? She hates all kind of dirts, including dirty minds. Which recall our cheap dirty political videos.
      Get real, GK. Time’s up for more Bersih. Why not ask your housewife for an honest opinion?

  2. Hi Anil
    Sorry to deviate again.

    Not sure if you read about a property piece in the Star last weekend with pictures of happy families from Singapore living in their beautiful bunglaows. The nice bungalows are in JB, built by a credible developer. These houses appear to go like hot cakes – for S$400,000 (RM1 million plus), one can own a luxurious house from that development.

    Apparently, these owners f( Malays included) want to enjoy some land and greenery at the sametime entertain their friends and relatives in a spacious homes like these.

    It saddens me that generrally we Malaysians alibi wage earners have very low income that we can’t even enjoy such properties in our own country.
    Of course the towkays, politicians and business people and their children could afford these million-dollar properties. But what about the rest of us?

    PR should seriously look into the middle class who are gradually slipping into the slightly above the category of poor, by ensuring salaries are decent, and attract investment-thereby jobs are APLENTY and for ALL, be it part-time of fulltime.
    PR should ensure the lame Housing Ministry work closely with the Ministeries from Finance, DomesticTrade and Consumer Afffairs and Law to do a major overhall in the housing/construction industry neglected under the BN.
    That way rakyat are protected. We should also enjoy in our own land, like the outsiders too.

    • Proponents of neocapitalism will argue for total privatization of every conceivable work, endeavor & business. Political will / should be kept as minimal interference as a kindergarten kid of no say. Private property is the golden rule untainted in their golden eyes of total freedom to create whatever system they see fit in the pursuit of maximum profits & wealth in the shortest possible time at super-lowest costs.
      Everything being equal for their privatized conquest has blinded them on purpose the reality of great differences in the social makeup. The less equipped of society to face the digital & information age of the most touted golden century of unlimited wealth creation will be rendered obsolete to even exist as a proper human species. Even the designer pet dogs can live in overt luxury in the bossoms of rich madame compared to some of us in abject poverty not of our own making in a manipulated society.
      Unless there is genuine redress of such dire circumstances (brought on by greed & egos), politicians, religious leaders & social scientists can never dream of a better future for mankind.
      Look at the state of rot in the greatest nation of post capitalist dream makers, The United States of America. See how the excessive greed of businesses & financial institutions in Wall Street & uncontrolled military spending & state splurging on unnecessaries with borrowed monies has led this giant on the road to its knees. The worst is yet to come. The US dollar bill will be nothing but a piece of rotten symbol of mismanaged institution. To the extent Wall Street will most probably be changed to Chinese Ah Long Street!
      The 1% rich has not learn a thing or two about numbers in human labor terms. The production of wealth is not entirely from the 1%’s time, effort & sweat. The spending on goods & services is not entirely from them either. Without work creation, without fair wages, there is no business to profit. Yet collaborative work is not recognized but skewed of its importance to suit their fancies – “I am the boss”. All they think of is money, money, money for themselves to splurge in front of the green eyed Joneses.
      The eventual collapse of the world economy will bring the richie to their knees just as it will bring the mighty USA to kowtow to PRC, the world’s richest Ah Long. B’cos the richie don’t care to learn from the glaring mistakes of the mother of all capitalism.

      Cosmopolitan George Town. Better define it well.

      • Johor is attracting Japanese who are scared of earthquake and tsunami in their home country) to take up malaysia My 2nd home in Johor. So the price of properties in iskandar region will definitely go up as the japanese will join singaporeans to snap up the properties at the expense of the locals.

      • The richie Arabs from Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE to Oman are also thinking of safe havens elsewhere, no thanks to war monger Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
        Malaysia looks pretty 2nd home with familiar palm trees in KL & sunny weather all year round.
        They may buy up many sandy islands with coconut trees. Or they may pay greedy developers to recreate The Palm Jumeirah.
        Oh no. Not in Penang!

  3. Bersih 3.0.
    Newly added power to dig out, expose & clean more dirts in the rotten system, more enlightening awakening in the uninformed minds.

    Empowers you to know your BASIC rights as a ‘brand’ changer & voter. Present brand power doesn’t want you to know that.

    Smell the fragrance of renewed hope added for clearer thoughts & refreshingly wiser ‘brand’ voting.

    A Must-TRY for those new to this belief product, a champion for cleaner, fairer & accountable ‘brand’ voting.

    See the real life testimonies from last year’s product experience. Read the hue & cry against its effectiveness of upright awareness. Test the word of mouth in the street credibility, not MSM advertising’s twist & turn.

    No added self-preservatives of any personality for continuous stay in power, no hidden nuclear toxic agent-da harmful to the innocent ‘brand’ voters. All pure, natural innate conscience of what is right to adopt as ‘my brand’, what is wrong to reject outright as ‘unclean’.

    No expiry date in this all pure & natural conscience product until all conceivable dirts are ridden off. Including cow dung in your condos.

    Product trial this Saturday at Speakers’ Square.
    No new bob-hairstyle salesmen or rainy green horned gurus to irk your Saturday mood.

    Malaysia Bersih! Kehidupan Wangi!

    • tunglang

      Can you organise a kopi kaw kaw session for all Anil’s readers to meet after the Bersih 3.0 event at Speakers’ Square this Saturday?

      name the place and time.

      • I shall look for a person with ‘Good Morning’ towel at speaker square as he is likely to be mr tunglang?

      • tunglang can continue to conceal his identity.
        just post the kopitiam during anil’s live feed.
        he can continue to walk in free with other participants and nobody will be aware of his identity; unless he starts singing that mongolian classic song 🙂

Please join in the discussion
