Birthday boy Nizar receives a basket of pomelo

Kinta Kid reports from the Democracy Tree in Ipoh:

A year ago today the new government of Perak was sworn in. Coincidentally it was also the birthday of “MB yang sah” Nizar Jamaluddin. Today, I received an sms at around 5.00pm about a birthday party for Nizar and it was to be held under Pokok Demokrasi at 6.00pm. Where else!

The PR team turns one today and the situation today has completely changed compared to the previous 50-odd years. For his birthday, Nizar was presented with a pomelo. (The pomelo is a fruit identified with Ipoh. It is segmented inside but is juicy and refreshing and its outer appearance is packaged well with a smooth and rounded exterior.)

Then there was a a basket of red eggs, yet another symbol of a birthday – usually presented during a child’s full moon (one-month-old birthday). Symbolic yes, and something that the rakyat of Ipoh can identify with.

For Nizar, after 52 years, he wants to ensure the “rule of law is maintained in Perak”  – a rule which “recognises the separation of powers as enshrined in the constitution”.

The crowd in attendance applauded heartily.

I was observing the clowing of events at the Putra centre recently. It was clear that they are upto ‘something’ sinister, The RAKYAT must be careful not to fall a trap. See the how the no.1 man was shouting at the end of the event. And the CRIS is still there. Reminding the RAKYAT that it will be used at the appropriate time. If you look at the RAMAYANA story in India, RAMAN also carries his keris around threatening the ordinary poor people. What the party in power needs is to gain the confidence of the RAKYAT RATHAR THAN CARRYING… Read more »

Sorry I forgot to mention the name of the town. It was

Teluk Anson, now Teluk Intan where I was the Town Council

Secretary for 10 years.

DEAR ANIL

I remember it was 1970. The town Council decided to cut a tree
at the corner of a junction and it was done.

the very next day, there was a motor cycle accident and two
young boys died on the spot.

People said that because the tree was cut, the accident took
place. It is up to you to believe it or not.

Strange things do happen. If anyone cuts the DEMOCRACY TREE in
Ipoh, the fate may befall on him/her or the Political Party
concerned.

😛 A happy birthday is happily wished to the legitimate MB Nizar of Perak! A little belatedly of course, but never mind, that hasn’t stopped anyone before, now has it? Hmm, are those 8) brightly coloured painted red eggs chicken eggs or duck eggs or some other sort of eggs? And what’s that tasty bit on the side which looks like a rather 😀 large fish on a big dish? WE SAY YEAH! & NO TO ISA! 😛 AND HARIS FOR AG & RPK FOR IGP! GO FOR DSAI FOR PM & LKS FOR DPM & KIND WAN AZIZAH FOR… Read more »

If Nizar is nominated candidate for Bkt Gantang, he will win hands down! I have no doubt about it. PR/PAS ahould seriously think about it, no one gets near him in terms of popularity – the Malays, the Chinese and the Indians love him!

I think this tree business is getting a bit out of hand. PR should start solving problems brought up by the rakyat. No doubt there has been some improvement in Perak during the 1year of PR reign but take for example the performance of Ipoh City Council. Has anyone seen any change before the PR take over and after? As far as I know they remained lazy and useless under BN and PR. But its obvious who holds the leash after the swift removal of the illegal memorial. Now lets all Ipohites and Perakians for that matter call their respective… Read more »

On behalf of the good people of Perak, I like to wish our Menteri Besar YB Datuk Seri Nizar “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” – You are the pride of Perak, the best Menteri Besar Perak ever have! May you continue to enjoy Good Health!

MB yang sah ? I thought it is Ngeh who is the real MB right ?

All these meaningless and provocative actions will serve nothing except to increase the level of politics and divert the attention away from economy and rakyat’s welfare.

If PR really stands for democracy and wants to claim the moral high ground, then Ngeh and his crew should cease meeting under tree and make a mockery of the HRH Sultan and the legal process. They should just wait for the court to make the decision on the legality of BN’s back door takeover.

Dear Anil

Plaques can be vandalised and bulldozed.

Trees can be chopped down.

But digital images will float around in cyberspace.

And hope for real change can never be extinguished from the hearts of long suffering, ordinary people!

(Learn from history, ruling elites:
South Africa 1976 (Soweto) and 1994, Czechoslovakia 1968 (Warsaw Pact invasion)and 1989, Poland 1980 (Gdansk)and 1989,
Hungary 1956 and 1990, South Korea 1980 (Kwangju) and 1993,
Taiwan 1947 (228 Incident) and 2000, Philippines 1972 (martial law) and 1986, Indonesia 1965 (Gestapu)and 1998 etc)

Assalamualikum WBT, Tuan Hj Nizar, Selamat menyambut Hari Lahir dan semoga Allah Yang Maha Kuasa serta Penyayang melanjutkan usia Tuan Haji serta di restui apa-apa hajat/nawaitu Tuan Haji yang suci untuk segala lapisan rakyat negeri Darul Ridzuan. Allah Hu Akbar x 7 kali. Betul serta benar, menyambut sesuatu hari lahir tidak sepatutnya membazirkan wang rakyat dengan upacara-upacara yang terlalu meriah sehingga lupakan Allah dengan keseronokan yang tak terhingga..sepatutnya bersedekahlah kepada rakyat yang miskin papa kedana, yang cacat anggotanya serta buta dan kaum-kaum tak berupaya dan tidak lupa membuat khenduri kesyukuran di rumah Allah, Masjid, dengan melafazkan segala kepujian kepada Ilahi… Read more »

Happy birthday Datuk Seri Nizar!

I hope people stop having celebrations at the tree out of respect. This is because, eventually, the malicious vandals will cut the tree out of spite due to too much attention being paid to the tree. Who suffers eventually? The poor tree does. You must understand that the vandals have no conscience. If they can break the plaque, they will cut the tree without thinking twice. This is the maturity of our society. Go around KL and you can see walls being sprayed with all sorts of things by vandals. Half the things sprayed on the walls are broken English,… Read more »
