Hi bros... this is a mail I just received about an ungrateful non-bumi that has managed to go overseas thanks to our country's policy. From my point of view, this is in other words someone that's unhappy with Pak Lah's ways of imposing the new policies and coordinating the current govt policies. here's the mail:
''I have been meaning to pen some thoughts for some time now, to let people actually read the views of the typical 'overseas Malaysian' who is kept away. I realise that my email is rather long, but I do hope that you would consider publishing it (and also keep my name private!). I shall start by telling a little about my background. Mine is a rather sad tale - of a young Malaysian full of hope and patriotic enthusiasm, which is slowly but surely trickling away.
I am very different from many other non-bumiputeras, as I was given tremendous opportunities throughout my childhood. Born into a middle-class Chinese but English-speaking family, I grew up with all the privileges of imported books, computers, piano/violin lessons and tuition teachers. My parents insisted that I should be exposed to a multi-racial education in a national school. In my time, my urban national school (a missionary school) was a truly happy place - where the Malays, Chinese and Indian students were roughly equal in proportion. We played and laughed with each other, and studied the history of the world together during Form 4, with one interesting chapter dedicated to Islamic history. Though 75% of my teachers were Malays, I never really noticed. My Malay teachers were the kindest to me - teaching me well and offering me every possible opportunity to develop. I led the district teams for English and Bahasa Malaysia debating competitions. I was the only non-Malay finalist in the Bahasa Malaysian state-level elocution competition. My Malay teachers encouraged me to transfer to a government residential school (sekolah berasrama penuh) so as to enable me to maximise my academic potential. I refused because I was happy where I was, so they made me head prefect and nominated me as a 'Tokoh Pelajar Kebangsaan'. Till this day, I am absolutely certain that it was the kindness of all my Malay teachers which made me a true Malaysian. I excelled at school and was offered a Singaporean government scholarship to study overseas. I turned them down because I wanted to ensure that I would remain a 'true Malaysian' in the eyes of Malaysia. So I accepted a Malaysian government scholarship to study at Oxford University. Throughout my
three years as an undergraduate, the officers at the MSD looked after me very well, and was always there to offer support.
I graduated with first class honours, and was offered a job with a leading investment bank. The JPA released me from my bond, so as to enable me to develop my potential. I shall always be grateful for that. I worked hard and rose in rank. My employer sent to me to Harvard University for postgraduate study and I climbed further up their meritocratic ladder. Now I am 31 years old and draw a comfortable monthly salary of US$22,000. Yet, I yearn to return home. I miss my home, my family, my friends, my Malaysian hawker food and the life in Malaysia. I have been asked many times by Singaporean government agencies to join them on very lucrative terms, but I have always refused due to my inherent patriotism.
I really want to return home. I have been told by government-linked corporations and private companies in Malaysia that at best, I would still have to take a 70% pay cut if I return to Malaysia to work. I am prepared and willing to accept that. My country has done a lot for me, so I should not complain about money.
But of late, my idealistic vision of my country has really come crashing down, harder and faster than ever before. I read about the annual fiasco involving non-bumiputera top scorers who are denied entry to critical courses at local universities and are offered forestry and fisheries instead. (My cousin scored 10A1's for SPM and yet was denied a scholarship).
I read about UMNO Youth attacking the so-called meritocracy system because there are less than 60% of Malay students in law and pharmacy, whilst conveniently keeping silent about the fact that 90% of overseas scholarship recipients are Malays and that Malays from the vast majority in courses like medicine, accountancy and engineering at local universities.
I read about the Higher Education Minister promising that non-bumiputera Malaysians will never ever step foot into UiTM. I read about a poor Chinese teacher's daughter with 11A1's being denied a scholarship, while I know some Malay friends who scored 7A's and whose parents are millionaires being given scholarships.
I read about the brilliant Prof. K.S. Jomo, who was denied a promotion to Senior Professor (not even to Head of Depart! ment), although he was backed by references from three Nobel Prize winners. Of course, his talent is recognised by a prestigious appointment at the United Nations.
I read about UMNO Youth accusing Chinese schools of being detrimental to racial integration, while demanding that Mara Junior Science Colleges and other residential schools be kept only for Malays.
I read about the Malay newspaper editors attacking the private sector for not appointing enough Malays to senior management level, whilst insisting that the government always ensure that Malays dominate anything government-related.
I read that at our local universities, not a single vice-Chancellor or Deputy Vice-Chancellor is non-Malay. I read that in the government, not a single Secretary-General of any ministry is non-Malay. The same goes for all government agencies like the police, armed forces, etc.
I read about UMNO screaming for the Malay Agenda, but accusing everyone else of racism for whispering about equality. I read about a poor Indian lady having to pay full price for a low-cost house after being dispossessed from a plantation, whilst Malay millionaires demand their 10% bumiputera discount when buying RM2 million bungalows in a gated community.
I read about my beloved national schools becoming more and more Islamic by the day, enforced by overzealous principals. I read about my Form 4 World History (Sejarah Dunia) syllabus, which now contains only one chapter of world history, with Islamic history covering the rest of the book.
As I read all this, I tremble with fear. I love my country and long to return. I am willing to take a 70% pay cut. I am willing to face a demotion. I honestly want to contribute my expertise in complex financial services and capital markets. But really, is there a future for me, for my children and for their children? I am truly frightened.
I can deal with the lack of democracy, the lack of press freedom, the ISA, our inefficient and bureaucratic civil service, our awful manners and even a little corruption. But I cannot deal with racism in my homeland.
I think this is the single biggest factor which is keeping people like myself away. And bear in mind - there are so many of us (researchers, scientists, bankers, economists, lawyers, academics, etc.). What people read about in Malaysia (like Dr Terence Gomez) is but the iniest tip of the iceberg. You will be amazed to know about Malaysians denied JPA scholarships (which would have made them civil servants), took loans to attend Ivy League universities, but who are later asked to advise our government (on IT, economics, etc.) at fees running to millions of US dollars. Such information will never be published because it is politically incorrect.
As a Christian, I pray for God's blessing on this great country of ours. I pray that He blesses our leaders with the foresight and humanity to see that this will not work and cannot continue. I pray that they will have the strength to make our country a home for all Malaysians and that they will have mercy for the poor, including the non-Malays. I pray for true racial harmony and acceptance (not just tolerance) in Malaysia.
A very frightened Malaysian abroad''
This one article I hoped you guys can spend some time reading it and comment or at least be aware of it. I shall not add anymore as I think everyone is entitled to their views but as an anak Melayu I hope that we are aware of what is coming in the future. Perhaps this serves as a good preview. All of us can do something to change things and make it a better place for everyone. Nope, I'm not for the letter but I am really offended after reading it not as just a Malay but also as a Muslim.
P/S: I've highlighted the points that I think it's worth taking note.

It's been long since i wrote or socialized with my broz so let's view what i have here for all...quite bz lately...sorry broz...
I've just removed my wisdom tooth (no. 18)...the one we malays called..'gigi bongsu' as it projected out of normal range..can't find room to grow in my mouth, so it just point out. Thanx to a fwen of mine (a cute dentist wannabe), that pre-examined me n refer me to her lecturer (a dentistler)...But that's not the story is all about.. The main point is that together with the treatment, i've been diagnosed with 'geographical tongue' by the dentist...i thought it was really dangerous as if it is related to syphilllis or aids when the dentist just smile towards my curiosity...she even said nuthin related to it after that! Ish2...diagnosed me with 'geographical tongue' and explain nuthin after that...so bad! Luckily,we got the internet or the so-called bible by my catholic fwenz..Herewith, let me share with all of you about this 'geographical tongue' phenomenon..i think most of us xpnah dnga ler kot...
Alternative names : Patches on the tongue; Tongue - patchy; Benign migratory glossitis
Definition : Geographic tongue describes a map-like appearance of your tongue. This results from irregular, denuded patches on its surface.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors :
The specific cause of geographic tongue is unknown, although allergies may be involved. Other causes may include irritation from hot or spicy foods, alcohol, or tobacco.
The pattern on the surface of your tongue may change very rapidly. The pattern results from the loss of papillae (tiny finger-like projections on the surface of the tongue). This gives areas of the tongue flat spots, and thus a geographic appearance. These areas of papillae loss are said to be "denuded." Denuded areas may persist for more than a month.
* a map-like appearance to the surface of the tongue
* smooth, beefy red patches and lesions on the tongue
* patches that change location from day to day
* soreness and burning pain (in some cases)
Signs and tests :
Your doctor will usually diagnose this condition based on an examination of your tongue. Tests are usually not necessary.
Treatment : There is no treatment.
Geographic tongue is a harmless condition. 3% of the world population diagnosed with it.
Prevention : Avoid hot or spicy food, alcohol n tobacco
So, just wanna say to those experiencing the same probs wif me that we are part of the 3% from the world population that were affected...quite special kan? For my batch members who currently pursuing studies in medicine or dentistry or watever related to it, pliz get a cure for this ekk...u might end up having a medicine named after u like 'black's aid' or 'kuchaimed' someday...ntah2 'Kokocure' (Koko = kojacklertue)...N for those with high interest in spicy foods, alcohol n tobacco (alan,koboi,topeq,john,lendew,uncle,kazaam,kodok,mat den,kamal..just to name a few,in fact, bukan name sebenar)...jage2ler yer lidah ngkowang...ako nie sebab byk makan pedas2..ehehe...asam pedas pari hjh. noriah n laksamana!(Xcaye tanye john)... Byn laks ade special technique for 'tongue-wash'...heheh... tanyeler die sendiri......
til then for now..
Sowiler takde citer pasal summer ke....winter ke...cuti ke...tak ker...rindu ker...my perception towards regional politics n economy ker..politic campus yg xde future ke...jage malaysia katekan...heheh..
p/s: Sowi to all sbb lame tak lepak/contact..i'm bz with my final year thesis..bwat BioDiesel...tension den..hope kowang paham...life's like that...The first step to getting things you want out of life is this : Decide what you want....

Happy 100th birthday to her!!It's been a while since I last 'literally' wrote in this blog.For the first time ever,since the last 3 old boys wknd ako datang koleq,I think this is the first time I felt the spirit of belonging to our mom so strong to the extend that I want to hug the Graeco-Roman Pillar so much....I really hope you guys felt the same way....
But,sadly,for some of us,they seem to confuse the interest of being honoured & honouring our mother.Kita harus faham,kali ni,kita balik nk tgk 'mak'.Dia dah 100 tahun,dah nazak sgt dah....Act appropriately for the event and behave....
If we're a legend,dok diam sudahlaer....don't brag it all around,such a nuisance....kalau ada org lain dapat attention lebih sikit,mampuih dia laer,yg kita nk cucuk lebih2 tue buat apa?
Kita buat kerja lebih sikit,nk nama,mcm sial,x kena layan,marah.Come on Hanoverians,bukan sume gamba kita bole masok,agak2 laer....bukan sume cite kite bole bukak....Respect 'old boys' tue,diorang lg old timer....Jgn menggelabah sangat,kita kn budak koleq....
It's not always about us ok?Dia dh nazak sgt dah,c'mon 9701,jgn kita tambah penyakit dia....Show respect to your mom...Dia dh bagi banyak sgt dh kt kita semua.Old Boys Weekend ngan 100 years,majlis yg berbeza...
Kalau ada terkasar bahasa tue mintak maap banyak2,maklumlaer,kita nie insan biasa....
Kalau nk simpan bawak jalan2 tu,terpulang laer....member kita pernah ckp "a man forgives but doesn't forget" fikir2kn laer....
And again I would like to take this opportunity to thank her,you made us the person we are right now....thank you....
Happy 100 years mom....

It's been awhile since I last wrote in. Quite a lot of development - especially on our Centenary Celebration Day. Sesape yang pergi tuh, jgn lupe nak post your experience/events that happened on that day.
Anyway, my main reason of writing in is to speak my mind. I see a lot of posts/replies regarding the girl who scored 17A1s. Actually to some extent, I find it rather humourous - especially kawan Byn nye blog tuh. To some kids, it's an inspiration - not that they want to get 17A1s but to try an achieve straight A1s with the subjects they take. (My 'adik angkat' from the Kalsom Project I had during summer hari tuh wrote in and mentioned about this girl and how she wants to get straight As.)
Personally, it's an individual's choice on how he/she wants to live her teen life. Some would try to balance between academic and co-curricular but some would devote to just academic. It is HER life, so be it. We saw our own batch members who devoted their life to studying and not bothering in sports... So what's the big deal? Perhaps 17 is a bit too much but hey, it's her choice. I think it is an achievement nevertheless it's rather unusual. Shouldn't we applaud this rather kinked achievement than being a sour grape or a wet blanket?
Anyway, I thought I should write this on the blog rather than the "reply" column because it's pretty damn long isn't it? Besides, I'm on holiday now, so pretty much free now. Back to the current issue, hope you guys will have loads of fun attending the Centenary celebration :)

I've been reading the Star Online for the past few days and to be honest, most of it is pure rubbish. Sorang budak dapat 17A1's abes kecoh sumer orang. Skolah kek Kuale tu lepok je(mcm kidin!), ntah2 STAR pon lg power kot. Anyway, aku rase ah..kalo nk kasi koleq power senang je, pilih ah sorg budak yg bajet boley dpt straight A1, suruh dier ambik 30 subjek, pastu kasik jage dier baek2 i.e. kasik mkn sedap2+bilik best+xyah inspection+private tuition sumer, kompem boley masuk paper nye.
Oh, not forgetting...paper suke highlight the fact that these people are all-rounders kan? Hmm, senang je, form a club yg xde org nk masuk e.g. Winnie-The-Pooh society pastu bg dier jd prez, n then suruh aaa dier register maen satu game. No need to play for koleq asalkan kat sijil ader tules sports dier ape...
Seronok ah jd budak Malaysia!

Ni ade skit article utk korang baca. I bumped into this website mase tgh bosan, tak tau nak buat ape... It was quite touching, some of the stories. Reading it made me thought for awhile how I have lived my life. Ade 5 parts to it but I put just the 1st sbb takut nanti panjang sgt org tak baca. I'll post it from time to time. Happy Birthday all. Enjoy...
FIVE GREAT LESSONS
1 - Most Important Lesson
During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one:
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'hello'." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
Never forget people - even those whose tasks seem small.

hanoverians and butterfingers
happy 8th birthday hanoes. may our friendship and brohood lasts forever.nice article about ur #8 there byn. ur still one helluva funny macha back from kemaman that we hanoes use to know. in two years time, insyaallah we'll gather back in kuala for the 10th anniversary of hanoverian apostates. i was hoping that we hanoes could be a lil bit active in the context of holding gatherings just to spice up the atmosphere for 2007. i heard 9599 had their annual dinner recently. i was hoping that someone could organize a dinner this year.
Butter held a gig at hard rock last saturday. I went there with Farid Wahid and Munira. The attendence of budak koleq for the gig is quite a number. We saw lendew, macho , dabooz, peah of 2000, ayie of 98 and few others.suprisingly uncle jaafar was there too.
butter history was way back in koleq where emmet introduced to butter by his fren a burung back in koleq. from there butter was formed and the stride their way to the stardom of malaysian music. ask any undergrounder or rocker from seattlewangsa or ipoh rock city do they know butter? they'll answer " ko ni tanye soalan basic la.kang aku cakap bodoh kang marah"..that's how butter is famous, like pau yut loy, like klcc and we can be proud of the will and wit of kadak,loque,emmet and loco/kalai for their effort to play non compromised, raw radical sound of grunge.
the new album dubbed selamat tinggal dunia is their first malay release. excellent sound and lyrics. brave approach eg: jilat bontot depa in tentang-tentang. some tracks feature shallow music that will make macha from seattlewangsa and ipoh rock city goin nuts for the chords.
their performance in hard rock was exceptional quality. crowds layan their nu songs like it was a international performance. when it comes to the old song session, the crowd was ecstatic. i saw macho, dabooz and lendew in the mosh pit enjoying themselves. dabooz was in the air longest and macho twice. happening habis.
the show ended 4 pm. the crowd cried for butter but the show could not go further. it was a show where true talent of malaysian music was displayed and what make me proud is some of the guys was from koleq.....
p/s: hear out for seven collar t shirt new album.

My favourite number. My jersey number. Once my position in rugby. The month I was born. The month of merdeka. The number of days Kazaam tried to fast for last year. And now, the number of years you guys have known me, and I've known you. Or at least the number of years that we know Krem is from Bota, or how the spell D.Z.A.H.R.A.N.D.Z.O.W.A.H.I.R.
That's a bloody long period! I myself barely keep in touch with my primary schoolmates now. Nevertheless, one might argue it's because that was waaaaayy ages ago. But how many of you actually still keep in touch with half of your classmates A Levels and Matrix or pilot school for Dabooz.
So why are we so obsessed with this koleq thingy, an annoyed non-koleq anomaly might ask? Don't bother answering, but instead, shove Impression up his ass. And if you don't know what Impression is, just pick any book you can find now and shove that up yours. Such a great book, with interesting illegal copyrighted content. Kudos to Izmir for lending his to me. On top of that, make sure you make your way back to Kuala on the 26th March. How can you even consider missing your chance to be a part of history and a history?
We are not obsessed. We are blessed, with the best thing one can ever ask for after a good looking girl as a wife, another good looking girl as the second wife, a good looking maid, a cool car, a big house, a thick wallet full of credit cards, an account book full of zeros, a good paying job, a private jet, etc etc.. which is friendship. I heard this once, friends are sometimes more precious than your own family, because you choose who to be your friends, but you don't get to choose who to become your family. Therefore we value them, maybe slightly more than other people would because they didn't get to live with Zarox and Foodle for one long year, and Buana for 2.
So back to the number 8. How much have we changed by the number. Certainly 8 itself is not much to count. But 8 times 365? Enough days to give Nikmat a few more feet, or Arep a few more milimitres; enough to give Alan, who use to screw up the rugby team's plan of wearing the blue Anderson jersey during the carnival because of his skinny body, a few more kilograms around the waist, or Adam a lot more kilograms around the body; enough to make Dabooz a Fawker pilot, or Kojeq a real fucker (hehehe kidding bro. cant think of anything else that relates); and definitely enough time to uncross a person's eyes.
Unfortunately for us, or for them, some were lost between these numbers. A few were MIA, perhaps KIA we may never know. Some left and never called back. Some never left and never called back either. Some like Skaters and Kazaam only miss calls. There are those who register at this website but never log back in. There others who ask access to write in the blog but never post a shit up here. There are those who tries to chat but use names like anonymous, ustaz latib, samhong and bowlatt. However there are others who chat using names like adam, kame and kuchai. Others who uploads photos in the gallery or posts job adverts in the blog. And the best ones are those reading this piece now...
Last but not least, I would like to reinstate my point here: 8 is my favourite number!
p/s: happy birthday guys...
