Moving On

Work has been piling up lately that I hardly have time for myself, let alone writing in a personal blog.  If anyone cared to notice, I have been writing mostly light stuff, more commentary than any real heavy material that requires mega research.

Unlike some who are full-time political macai being paid to glorify their political masters, or being paid to roam the net, denigrating everyone that do not subscribe to their opinions, I have to work to earn a living.

It is a matter of time management, more than anything else.  After all, I have to prioritise my activities, and putting food on the table has to take precedence over hobbies.

What I have been hearing from friends working in Kota Iskandar, however, have been very depressing, and the "huru-hara", with massive "re-structuring" within the JCS that defies logic and reason, apparently not originating from Kota Iskandar.

Without the firm hand and subtle support of the previous MB at the helm, the JCS is left with no choice but to adhere to the changes being dictated to them, to the detriment of their HR development plans that have been put in place for the past few years.

For all their arrogance and discourtesy, the numerous special officers at Level 4 MBSS have not been able to touch the JCS infrastructure, and the only thing they have managed to do is magnify their seeming ignorance and lack of general knowledge to the observing JCS officers.

Based on the development in Johor right now, and how the administration of the state is being compromised, I think it is best that I consider a different place to call home.

I am now looking for new options outside of Johor as I find the situation being faced by my friends to be unpalatable.  At least it won't affect me directly if I am no longer here.

Regardless of the bright future in this state I call home, I don't think it is a healthy place for me, and it is best to leave while I am ahead.

  1. Haha....khaled nordin will find the road ahead very bumpy, trust me. Last time everybody thought that Ghani was the cause of all the problems in Johor GLCs, slowly but surely people will realise that there are magic hands fr above dictating the admin n business direction of the state affairs. KN will find it tough to deal with his former classmate for sure. On the other hand, JCS also has its fair share of weaknesses n problems. Mostly incompetent esp those pensioners who helm Johor GLCs. Biz in Johor are now very difficult. Everything must be made known and get sanctioned by u know who. Really messy actually if u know the story from the ground.

    1. Yes, it is very bad. At least Ghani has the mettle to minimise the damage wreaked on the poor JCS and Johor GLC management, now there is no one.

    Just write light matters. It is the malay community constant keeping in touch that will shape malay future. The malays cannot go back to being feudal. If Johor go back to being feudal, it is due to lack of understanding of democracy and the right of common people. Every Malay is equal is no mere slogan but something that we have to fight and stand up for.

    This is nothing compared to what Malays have to fight for before.

    1. I agree. The political infighting among the Chinese are just as bad, but they don't spill it out into the open. Unless it's really, really bad (eg, MCA). That makes them look united, but actually they are just as fractured. Just look at the factions in DAP, MCA, Gerakan... non-stop backstabbing.

      What we should learn from them is, when facing the enemy, present a united front. Keep the bickering in the back room.

  5. When the government is weak, the magic hands will come in and dictate things. The constitution will soon be merely toilet papers.

  6. Isn't all these Anwar's fault ? The Red Bean Army's fault ? Hehehehe.....

    1. Yes, it is partly Anwar's and DAP's fault that has weakened and undermined the Civil Services and government institutions in this country. The government machinery is being attacked from all sides, and the Opposition is acerbating the situation, taking full advantage. You think Opposition agents had no hand in the actions of the hidden hands of Johor? Think again.

    2. Actually yes it is, and more than you think. It was Anwar who brought in money politics in a big way into national politics in UMNO, and then he made it a culture in UMNO.

  7. Opposition agents ? Those funded by the Jews, the Singapore PAP, the Americans ?

  8. Never mind lah, Kuching Besar. The Chinese will develop Johor. Iskandar will be developed by the Chinese from Singapore. Penggerang will be developed by the Chinese from Taiwan. Soon the Singapore MRT will end in JB. Soon the high speed train will also be a JV with Singapore.

  9. Jika PM gagal membuat perubahan maka tiada siapa yang dapat membantu beliau dalam jangkamasa terdekat ini.

    PM harus pecat budak hingusan seperti Almahri yang langsung tidak ada pengalaman dalam media sosial mahupun media arus perdana.

    Almahri hanyalah seorang bekas pegawai Affendi Norwawi dan bukannya seorang penulis atau pemikir.

    Jika PM tak pecat Almahri dan memberi kuasa mutlak kepada beliau yang hanya pandai mengumpul data dari pihak yang dibayar untuk mengumpul data dan disembah kepada PM maka PM gagal sebagai pemimpin.

    Almahri adalah jadi jenis manusia yang tidak mengenal erti malu dan sanggup menonjolkan diri untuk anugerah dan pingat walaupun kerja yang dilakukan tidak lebih dari kerja peon pejabat kerajaan.

    Pastinya PM tahu akan tabiat Almahri ini kerana PM secara peribadi pernah menolak hajat besar Almahri nak ditabal menjadi 'Datuk'.

    PM pun kena fikir sikit, bagaimana seorang picisan yang tidak berpengalaman diberi tanggungjawab 'JAGA' media sosial.

    Adakah Almahri seoarang wartawan, aktivis, blogger, jurugambar atau pernah melibatkan diri dalam mana-mana media yang serius? Kenapa PM harus kekalkan puak yang tidak efektif tapi pandai bodek?

    Jika PM tak buka mata dan bangun dari terus dibuai mimpi-mimpi indah dari pencacai sepertti Almahri, maka menjelanf Perhimpunan Agong Umno nanti akan ada kejutan.

    Tun Daim telah memberi nasihat. Langkah seterusnya pasti bukan nasihat lagi.

    Terima Kasih Ampun & Maaf.

  10. Govt should get out of business. Privatise everything and let market forces run the companies. We should prepare the ground rules and assist whatever target group. Cronyism at this scale will result in big losses. Transparency in governance will help cut down on those rent seeking devils. Those who receive land or get projects should be public knowledge .

One Professor , a Chinese, remarked that Malaysia is the only country ie other than China, Taiwan, HK where the Chinese van keep their Chineseness..ie their language, their culture, their burial ground, their newspapers their Tok Kong, their Chingay,their clothes, their shrines their firecrackers ( which is unlawful but they simply disregard)their wake and the tails of papers they threw from the hearse..(and escorted by a Malay traffic police at most times...ha ha ha) Not even Chinese Spore, where there are no Chinese schools for example.Most despite 3/4 generations living here cant speak the local language at all
