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

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

An ancient story revisited…

Some of my readers (might) have read the following story before:

There were two men in a city: one was rich; the other, poor. The rich man had many sheep and cattle, but the poor man had only one little ewe lamb he had bought. He himself fed it and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and slept on his lap. It was like a daughter to him. Now a traveller came to the rich man, but he would not take from his own flock or herd to prepare food for the traveller. Instead, he took the poor man’s lamb and prepared that for his visitor.

David was furious because of this man and told Nathan, “As Yahweh lives, the man who has done this deserves death! He must return the lamb fourfold for acting like this and showing no compassion.

Nathan said to David, “You are this man! …” (2 Samuel 12: 1 – 7)

A sequel to the above story can be found in Psalm 51 (see also Psalms 52 and 53). You might be wondering on what’s the link between the above story and this article, right?!

The followings have been mentioned in Proverbs:

  1. Better to have little but fear the Lord than to have a fortune accompanied by anxiety.” (Proverbs 15: 16)
  2. He who craves dishonest gain brings trouble to his house; he who accepts no tempting bribes will live.” (Proverbs 15: 27)

And now, did you see “the connection” clearly?

I’m talking about dishonest, (but) intelligence officers intelligent public servants who used to take (or ask for) bribes and/or swindle gomen allocation for personal gain! Yup, it’s all about lust and greed. Well, this is not a stereotype statement; in fact, it’s a reality of life! “The corrupt man takes bribes to pervert the course of justice” (Proverbs 16: 23).

It’s quite disheartening to see people who have good education and with good jobs (especially those who hold gomen posts) are being seduced into this kind of immoral act. Money is good, but it’s the root of evil (if being misused) (1 Timothy 6: 10, 17 – 19) and can ruin one’s life…

Whatever it is, we have been reminded by our Lord JC to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10: 16). By the way, I would like to recommend my readers to download and read this e-book bearing the title as indicated in Matthew 10: 16. And I’m sure that you’ll be shocked (and please be prepared for it!).

Have a blessed Sunday, everyone!

My foot lah, “Con Fee” by the Con Men!

I was shocked when I found out that Air Asia is currently soliciting “extra” money (illegally?) from its potential passengers!

Now what’s this so called “Convenience Fee”, introduced on November 2, 2009? See (and read) the followings, sourced from Air Asia’s website:

Luckily enough, the image is too blurred to be seen with a naked eye lah... Anyway, if you’re familiar with Air Asia’s website, you’ll notice the blue text (typed in bold) on the left side, coupled with the boxed text. The boxed text reads “Convenience Fee: 5.00 MYR x 2 way x 1 Pax = 10.00 MYR”, regardless of your “to and fro” destinations!

A-ha! The “sound and convincing” reasons to solicit extra payment from potential passengers/customers!

Really?! So, whether it’s a return international or domestic flight, individual passenger still has to pay another RM10.00 extra?

And that’s really questionable! How could others and I suppose to pay for something that we couldn’t and wouldn’t afford to have (during the flight)?

What?!, are the passengers forced to fork out their extra money for the cramped seats inside its A3XX fleet?! You bet, folks!

Anyway, Item #3 really saves the day (minus the convenience fee) – I mean, the direct debit payments to be made via online banking lah!

L.O.L.!!!

“2012” the movie?! Yeah, it’s a great movie but …

I’m guessing that some of my readers have seen the movie called “2012”. Of course, it’s a great movie, full of actions, prophecies, etc. But, do you buy it?

I don’t! It’s propaganda actually, to instil fear and panic among us. Why am I not panic? To my Christian brothers and sisters, the answer is quite simple: You’ve got to have the faith and believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer. Of course, you and I are sinners in front of God the Almighty!

Anyway, I’m not going to discuss about faith in here – today! Let me tell you another story lah. Two years ago, during a quest, I found these very³ shocking websites (of which I’m not going to reveal its links in here). A week ago, I’ve revisited these sites for further clarification and it still contained the same information. And, to deepen my quest for further information, I’ve found other new websites, which are also informative and contained “parallels”. Period!

Another question:

Do you believe that the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti is of natural occurrence?

To me, it’s the work of human hands… 99.9% guaranteed!

Well, you might be puzzled… “How come it’s the work of human hands”, right?!

In the new websites that I’ve discovered recently, Russia and America are two great nations with multi-skills, technology, etc. Believe it or not, these nations could “trigger” earthquake using a technology known as TESLA Technology!

And what’s the link between “triggered” earthquake and TESLA? Some of you might know already that today’s world is in the hands of the so called “prince of darkness” a.k.a. “Satan”. Some people might joke about that vicious (and ferocious) fallen angel’s name and put it as “S. Atan” or “S.A. Tanlah!

To cut it short, the world today is controlled by these vicious, Masonic Jews, who are Satanists; be it communists, fascists, Nazis, atheists, liberalists, anarchists, democrats, republicans, whatever (if you know what I mean by that!)… And of course, you’d be surprised that Malaysia also has its own Mason(s) – whenever you read that Wikipedia reference on Masonic… It’s not a surprise to me, as this “exclusive club” belongs to wealthy Malaysian businessmen! Anyway, their major organization is known as the secretive Illuminati, disguised under many forms of “minion” organizations. And believe it or not, all past (including current) US Presidents were/are Masons. You might be wondering again, “Then how come they invoked the name of god during their inauguration like “So help me, god!”?

A-ha, that’s tricky! For Christians, please remember that before we end our prayer, we usually put our petitions by saying “I/we ask this/these through Jesus Christ, our Lord (and Savior). Amen+” or “In Jesus’ name I/we pray. Amen+

The name “god” as mentioned above could be referred to as “Satan”. So, I hope that you’ll see the difference!

“Triggered” earthquake(s)…? Yeah, it’s 99.9% guaranteed! For those of you who are still wondering “Why?”, Satan needs human sacrifice – in the form of blood! And now you’ll be thrilled! Do you wonder why there are so many unending human conflicts on abortion, civil wars, (ecological (including weather)) disasters, economic recession (plummeting stocks), rampant shootings (in the US), etc.? Remember SARS and the bird and swine flu? These are not categorized as “natural” epidemics; it were triggered by Illuminati as a mean to control world’s population, and also to be used as human sacrifice to appease their god! Well, it’s up to you to believe it or not…

And please remember that Satan (and his minions a.k.a. demons, genies, etc.) could be transformed into an angel (or angels) of light with lots of deception*. For Catholics, they should’ve known better (since long time ago!) about their weapons of choice

Our Lord Jesus Christ says that “we shouldn’t be troubled, as it is not yet the end; all these are only the beginning (known as “The Great Tribulation a.k.a. The New World Order”); false prophets will appear and mislead many people, etc.

Read Matthew – Chapter 24, my friends!

—————————————

* Remember the illuminated sign of the cross on coconut leaflets at Kampong Simalatong in Simunjan about two years ago?! That’s the sign of devil’s appearance!

Some of us have seen these photos before…

This is known as the perfect satanic fire sacrifice, executed by Illuminati on September 11, 2001. Click on the photo for other photos! This photo was sourced from a “secret” website...

The hexagram – concentrated on North and South American continents. Haiti and other Caribbean nations are within this hexagram. This photo was sourced from a “secret” website...

Concentration of the devil’s power is within this region with Illuminati as the executioner! The “darkest” activities here include plane crashes, hurricanes, rampant shootings, earthquakes, floods, etc. This photo was sourced from a “secret” website.

An image of the devil’s face was captured by a weather satellite during Hurricane Dean over Jamaica somewhere in 2007. Click on the image to watch this video.

Still not convinced that weather control is not under the grip of Illuminati?

Check out this blog.

Or you can make your own online search on that particular subject…

Another pitiful harvest year… ?

Just another quick outlook on poor performance of “our” plantation activities for the past 26 years…

EPF is yet to announce its dividend rate soon! Some folks (including myself) might guess that the 2009’s dividend could be lower (and possibly the worst) than 2008’s (see the graph as attached below). And when we compare it with ROI of other investment options, we do feel frustrated lah! The reasons are aplenty – economic down turn, irresponsible bail outs (read: illegal siphoning), PKFZ scandals, dan macam-macam ada!

Anyway, I don’t know about the rate of market price for each unit of EPF shares. Could it be RM1.00 per share?!

The demons…

Ooo… It sounds scary and yet funny, aye? Nope, it’s not!

My today’s article – in part is to condemn the silly acts by the so called Muslim Malay extremists in the capital city. They didn’t know on what they’re doing. On our part, let’s pray to the Lord JC to forgive them and send His Spirit upon them, so that they – one day – will have a change in their hearts. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen+

Well, as I said before, I’m not a Biblical scholar, but I knew on what’s good and what’s evil. The Lord JC always reminds us to “stay awake, as we do not know the hour… (Matthew 24: 42 – 51).” That’s why personal prayers to the Lord JC act like a protection shield against evil (doers) (and of course, frequent visits to the Church and receive Holy Communion are important – if one have the privilege to do so). In fact, we have been told to act like Roman Legionaries, i.e. by getting ready with our helmets, breastplates, belts, shoes, shields and swords (and of course, spears!) (Ephesians 6: 10 – 24).

Therefore, we – Christians – are constantly being reminded that we must pray (at all times) whenever the Spirit inspires us (Ephesians 6: 18). And again, we have been reminded to dress properly whenever we are going to give the Lord a visit – so as to make us worthy in front of Him, i.e. in receiving Holy Communion (NO short and/or tight pants, singlets, T-shirts with “evil” images or marks, mini dresses, whatever (including tattooed marks)…).

For Christians, the Nicene Creed (Profession of Faith) says it all. In Romans 10:9, our souls will be saved if we profess and confess (with our lips and hearts) that: 1) Jesus Christ (JC) IS Lord; and 2) God raised Him from the dead. If you may, read through the whole Chapter 10 of St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans (and look for verse 9). Does anyone out there dare to say that JC IS NOT alive today? If He isn’t alive, then how come the staunch Jewish scholar like Paul got converted and became one of His beloved disciples?

In fact, if you’re diligent enough (to do some extra readings), our living Saints (with the help from our Lord JC) have did some good deeds, even to the Muslim(s). You may read about the stories of Lebanese Saints – Hardini, Charbel, Rafca and Maroun – here. Another exciting website is attached here.

The question: Do we need to retaliate (against the odds)? The answer: No need lah, we’ll just stay cool (over this heated issue). And why should we waste and direct our energy for such a stupid retaliation?! We all knew that “God is Love” and thus, we must stand firm in loving and living side by side with our Christian and non-Christian brethrens.

To conclude, it’s sufficed to say that demonstrators were influenced by the demons

WE HAVE THE PUP! Yeah, right…!!!

After Christmas 2009 and New Year 2010 celebrations, our Orthodox Christian brethrens are now celebrating their own version of Christmas today. Right here in Malaysia, our Chinese friends are readying themselves for the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration, which is to be held in conjunction with Valentine’s Day (Wow!) on February 14, 2010.

Talking about (any kind of) celebration, the most “strenuous” thing to do has have to be with house decoration, right? Am I wrong?! Hmmmph!

Yeah, the ladies in the house, I’m sure, would be the busy bees with the housekeeping and decoration. And one of the distinct decorative features would be the curtains – be it new or reused curtains (from the previous occasion or celebration). Anyway, there’s a term to describe this. If some of you can’t grasp it, it is known as “window dressing”…

Yeah, “window dressing” is the current terminology used by Sarawakian folks (especially among the Bidayuh veterans) to describe the current event that’s happening in Sarawak right now. Anyway, as usual (as to excuse myself), “I have no further comment” on that!

OK³! Right – he deserves that, aye!? How come? Well, if you may folks, kindly refresh your memory via this flashback!

Melancong ke sana sini boleh, asalkan jangan melencong ke sana sini nanti, sudah lah! Some of us knew that this guy used to hook up at “Kera-OK session” (including other dirty habits) in the past…

Not to “backstab” him lah, but this serves as a plain reminder to other future political aspirants! Anyway, we all hope that he would be a very³ good boya boy…

For sure, we’ll be right back to track on his report card. His previous record was marked with a “D”! Aiyah! Click on this link (the Hansard (Penyata Rasmi Parlimen) PDF files), as it might serve on how to do the tracking

Spent 20 years on stage performance… Phew!

Hi folks!

(Hiii… L.O.L.!!!)

I just found two articles in another blog about the performance of ASB investment for the past 20 years (1990 – 2009).

For an easy reference, I’ve created a table and a graph, as shown below. The average dividend for the past 20 years is about 8.23%; the overall ROI performance (dividend and bonuses), however, is moving downward with time (see the graph below).

It looks fine to me, as long as the performance is maintaining itself “above par”, i.e. above BLR at (or below) 5.55%. Anyway, I’m not an economist by training, so that’s the only information that I could provide lah!

The ASB investment performance for the past 20 years (1990 – 2009). The overall ROI trend is moving downward with time. Could it move upward within two years time? We’ll wait and see, lah... Patience is a virtue, what...?! Click on the graph for other details.

It’s simply math! Scene + Fool = Sinful!

This morning I browsed the BBC News Online. I’m not shocked at all upon reading Zuma’s another wedding of the year, which is held today.

A Zulu’s traditional practice of polygamy?! Heck… it’s sexual misconduct after all!

It’s a shame for putting that Jewish name “Jacob” (or “Yaacub” or “Yakub” whatever!), instead of his traditional Zulu ancestry name.

Anyway, may he continue his lavish living in sin with his beautiful wives… The torment gate is now wide open for his poor soul…

My stance is with the young people of SA! In fact, this guy is totally non-eligible to lead SA!

Smile, Zuma, smile... And welcome to the world of “pagan” worship!

The TIGER BEER will be increased up to 0.3%?! Aiya…!!!

Wishing all my friends and readers a “HAPPY NEW YEAR OF THE TIGER 2010” – wherever they might be, lah… May your 2010 resolutions would come into a reality!

Well, it won’t be a surprise (anymore) that more items would be pricey beginning from this New Year. But what to do, that’s life!

For ASB investors, the year 2009 gave them a slightly increase in return on investment (ROI), i.e. an increase of 0.3% dividend* of 7.3%, as compared to 2008’s dividend rate of 7.0%.

Basic calculation for ROI is as follows:

ROI = 7.3%/100% x 100 Malaysian cents = 7.3 Malaysian cents (or RM0.073) for every RM1.00 (or 100 Malaysian cents) per unit share.

Will the rate is going down below 7.0% for this Year of the Tiger?! We won’t be sure about that. Anyway, don’t lose heart, folks! Do keep on investing your money in ASB…

Once again, “Happy New Year 2010 and happy investing”, folks!

————————————–

* The 1.25% (i.e. RM0.0125 or 1.25 Malaysian cents) bonus is excluded from the ROI for ASB investment of less than 10 years of age.
