The sickening ways of mengampu and membodek

One of the things which really makes me uncomfortable is to be in the presence of people who try to promote themselves by grovelling to their superior. The malay word for it is mengampu or membodek.



It's sickening. Really.

But, most of the time, such self degrading tactics worked. Well, in Malaysia at least. I have seen people with no real talent whatsoever except membodek reached the pinnacle of their organisation....and of course eventually screwed things up. This happens a lot actually.

I'm not really sure how it works, but probably men are all suckers for flattery. It's the ego thing, I guess. Lady bosses, I noticed were less susceptible to these sorts of nonsense. But then again most bosses are men, aren't they?

The same things also in Malaysian politics. The way they mengampu and membodek is really amazing. I'm not really sure how they managed to do it - lowering themselves to that level.

There will be more and more of these activities as these people jockied themselves for candidate slots of the coming general election.

This is the way things are mostly on both sides of the political divide. The end result is leaders who feel they can do no wrong. They become something of a demi-god. The Chinese word for it is tokong, if I'm not mistaken.

For muslim leaders, especially those with Islamic credentials, they would be regarded as some sorts of saints whose actions and words must be accepted without question by those who want to membodek them. These are the inheritors of the prophet (pewaris nabi), so they said. Those who try to argue against the edicts of these leaders were branded as traitors and deemed as bound to go to hell after they died. Surely good and soothing for the ego of the saintly leaders, eh.

For non-muslim leaders....errr, this one you all go and google Lim Kit Siang or Lim Guan Eng for illustrations, then you will see for yourself the history of DAP ever since the party was dominated by the father and son. You want to see bodeking DAP style? Just wait till their cybertroopers commented about this posting.

BN leaders and followers are also guilty of all these stupidity. Sometime I felt like vomiting blood watching the way they membodek  their leaders.

Cukup2 lah tu.

    1. Why cant the govt give citizenship to others? If it can give to the chinese surely it can give to others?

    2. Agree with you ANON 7:51.

      It is funny to see the 'pendatang' dares to question the government giving citizenship to other who deserved it!

      They sometimes forgot that they were also once a 'pendatang' coming here with 'tongkang' and today become 'Tokong'!

  3. Live and learn. People do it for survival lah BigCat. Those who don't know this skill face ostracization from their peers and superiors. A very humourous take. Love the picture, too. But honestly, the people who can stoop so low are quite "extraordinary people".

  4. Always the way in politics - you're not just required to toady up to them, you also can't whack your boss even if they do something stupid. Probably the same in all jobs too, at least if you want to have a career. I wonder what's worse, is it doing something (like defending your boss for something crass - e.g. using private jet, mega-celebration or coming up with an acronym for your new organization that spells your boss' name) or sitting on your hands doing and saying nothing?

  5. Kalau musim pilihanraya lagi BEST.

    You will see politicians along with their little ducklings terkedek2 tailing behind their pontot.

    However Pakatan beza sikit, habis pilihanraya pon terkedek2 belakang pontot BOSS sampai NEXT ELECTION pun tak penat - habuan belum dapat!

  7. After the MCA general assembly, it's clear Chua Soiled Lek ampu Najib kau kau. Then it was Alvin Tan's turn to ampu Chua. Those who don't know who Alvin Tan is, go back to sleep.

    1. Yet the combinations of Chua and Alvin won't be able to match the 'marvel' of ANUwar Berahi..The Brother is a sex machine!

      The Kaki Liwat does not only caught in action with a China Doll, but he is known to prefer his wife driver and his coffee boy rather than his wife!

    2. Very good. Dumno is good in producing XXX movies , story books and DVDs and orginate the term fuc*atan. Dumno is recruiting MCA to sell them in Pasar malam. Very soon if Dumno is still in power, we have Putrawood sex film industry.

    Agaknya bangsa mana yang mahir cara bodek begini?

  9. I started as a man of principles. Soon, I realised my principles never took me very far and in fact life became a struggle. I watched many who were least qualified achieved success and money faster.

    Then in 2000, I said I will just cast away my principles and sell my soul. Today and within a decade, I am really rich, made my money and I have busineses that bring me passive income. ( Thus, more free time surfing blogs). My children are all educated overseas and doing very well.

    I have got a attractive wife who at 45 looks 30 and a bungalow . Not to mention my other property investments. A holiday every quarter. And money to last my next generation.

    How did I do it? I said to my principles "stuff it". I really believe I did the right thing. Today, I am even a PIBG Chairperson and am working on my Datukship.
