Tiyung Dayak – “The Sour Dayak Apple” in Bidayuh Politics

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

It’s New Wine, New Wineskins…

"The Flame of Political Change" 2009 - 2011 campaign

"The Flame of Political Change" 2009 - 2011 campaign

Kempen “Bara Perubahan Politik” 2009 – 2011

Be A Dutiful Citizen…” is another humble calling (yes, it’s a political campaign strategy) to encourage adults of Sarawak origin to exercise their birthright to vote in the next state election. All eligible adults – starting from the age of 21 and above – are encouraged to register themselves (e.g. at the Post Offices). For those adults who have registered as voters, kindly check your names here, as the next state election could be held in the year 2011.

The last state election was held on May 20, 2006. I still recall that date as I’ve cast my “virgin vote” for SUPP. Yup, I know that I’m pretty naïve about that, but then, I’ve no regrets at all! On March 8, 2008, I’ve voted for PKR… Sorry lah ho, PBB (supporters)!

For Christian readers (regardless of their political creeds), I’m pretty sure that they are all familiar with the following biblical passages: New Wine in Old Wineskins and Dutiful Servants (Luke 5: 33 – 39 & Luke 17: 7 – 10). Well, I ain’t a Biblical scholar, so I won’t explain its hidden meaning. Do refer to that passages and learn it from the e-experts (just in case), as there are many e-Bible studies on the net. Otherwise, I’ll get the blame for leading you astray… Heh!

Whether you’re Pro-BN or Pro-Non-BN, that doesn’t matter. But yes, size (I mean “the quantity of voters“) does matter!

So, my friends, let’s start anew and do keep “The Flame of Political Change” burnin’…

For myself, I would say this slogan – “HIDUP DAYAK!” Yes, the Dayaks should be able to determine their own political mileage and not (to be dictated) by others…

  1. Hi Tiyung Dayak!

    Ya lah,am so sick to see those so-called Sarawak leaders and the vvips sipping ayer ribena or whatsoever when our people are trying to fend hardships,heartaches and sufferings due to the floods. Thank God its now subsiding.

    Also the mbks mayor personally handing over the OP to TPK!
    Can you believe that. It is open to all sort of negative interpretations,mostly negative, I reckon! Am unsure whether the hardworking mayor is overzealous or not?

    Like your blog! Truly. Thanks for your comments in my posts.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Tuan!

    Imagine this:

    We’ll get some big Empurau fish and grill it over a small fire. Yes, we’ll use dried rubber wood to generate the flame (not a big fire), right?! And I could imagine that the only comment to be made by Mr. President (of USA-B) about the smoked fish would be “Very nyaman… Yum! Yum!

  4. Thanks for all the comments, folks! Well, each and every one of us has a role to play. Yes, we do share a common mission: to get rid of “democrazy”. Let’s make it work. If we succeed in our fight, for sure, we would say, “Very nyaman…”.

  7. Tiyung Dayak,

    Bradder, go and visit Dr Hsu Forum. Have you been there?
    We(me and Dr Hsu) are both in BN (me in PRS and Dr Hsu in Gerakan, both Supreme Council members)seem to be anti Barisan in our thoughts and comments in our respective blogs.
    It is because we see “issue” as white if it is perceived to be white,thats all. It is not because “if you are not with me you are against me” sort of thing.Please do understand bradder!

  8. Borneo Warrior,

    It’s OK… I do understand that. Even some Dayak BN YBs also understood that. Anyway, I’m apolitical (non-partisan), so that I’m not being “made available” under “duress”…

    Well, I’ve set my target to stay off the course, but still I’ll shoot at both targets. Do I to elect a local Dayak BN-SUPP YB, knowing that the state gomen is currently plundering our limestone resources??? Nope! Do I to elect a local Dayak Opposition-PKR YB, knowing that he’s under the direct authority from Malaya??? Yes, I have to, as I have no other choice at all! I mistrust any independent candidate, as the candidate could have been planted by the gomen.

    “Avoid Dilemma”

    The human greedy that always made some of the leaders forgot about their BASIC DUTY that is to do their best to serve the Lord by doing their level best in their profession that God entrusted unto them as Leaders.

    • Well, that’s the Dayak’s dilemma…

      Comment by tiyungdayak | March 8, 2009 | Reply

  16. Dear Tiyung Dayak,

    U are very critical of Dawos. But please be considerate to a dying man. If Dawos has not done anything, then what are u doing?? U are a typical Bidayuh who does nothing for the Bidayuh but all the time criticising and criticising the others.

    But have u join DBNA?? Have u help ur own kampung?? Have u help any Bidayuh at all?? Do not use ur blog and brain to say bad things about Dawos and others. As far as i know, u use ur blog out of spite. U condemn others. U sindir others.

    But God is watching u. The Bible says, “He who spread lies will go down with lies. He who spread hatred is full of hatred. That hatred will kill him and his soul will be judge by God the Almighty”

    So if u want to go to heaven, stop ur actions that will lead u to hell.Amen.

    • That’s fine, Apai Salai, as we live in a free, democrazy country… You and I have the rights to criticize. And, it’s not only I who is critical of Dawos. Look around (including reading others’ blogs), have some chat with other people and get some feedback from them. Yup, I’m hopeful that all of them will bend their back at 90 degrees in … !

      Mr. Presidents of the US used to be criticized by the citizens of that country. But that’s not the case whenever the presidents of any organization in Malaysia got criticized lah

      Kritik sikit-sikit jer dah marah-marah… Aiya! See, I didn’t delete your relevant comment in here…

  17. Hi! I support your being critical as you are waking up our sleeping leaders, if they are sleeping. Lets hope the Dayaks’ critics will wake up would-be Dayak murtads.
