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

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

Further losses reported…

People tend to be blurry when it comes to money matter!

Vote buying is the hot commodity of the day – I mean – before and during the election that was held last Saturday (April 16, 2011)!

In Belaga, the votes were reportedly swayed to the Balat Nipu faction after its candidate granted the so-called “land grants” to the voters at the “eleventh hour”… It’s pathetic, though!

In Selangau, there’s a video showing a village headman who admittedly received a total of RM5K via two cheques; while another cheque amounting to RM5K wasn’t valid (yet)! We aren’t sure whether he would get the balance amount after “the exposé” was made known – internationally! Read this for details.

Lessons to be learnt?!

>>> Human identity and dignity are so cheap; i.e. ranging from RM10 to RM10K!

For a period within 5 years?! What the heck!

Cheap souls for sale? Not worth it!

The 415 entry…

I’m home and ready to exercise my rights and duty tomorrow! I also bought a piece of STABILO eraser – to be sliced into thinly pieces and shared among my buddies tonight. And these thinly pieces will then be recycled by giving it away to other voters tomorrow!

Well, I didn’t have a chance to attend any political rally in town; but then, the poster war among the warring factions is quite intense! Among the catchy phrases: “416*: Bye Bye Taib” and “Vote SUPP = Vote Taib”… Phew!

Guess what!? On the way back home this afternoon, I saw few contract workers were busying themselves putting up a SNAP banner! Kinda of “It’s now or never”, lah… Was it due to its low budget allocation?!

In the remote area, the campaign wasn’t really happening due to the presence of watchdogs! However, the warring factions do have its own way to entice potential voters into their camp! Yeah; vote buying is obvious and no one could argue on that!

I would say that the elders are very hard to accept change; meaning that “No money, no vote (for you)!” We – as the aware voters – should ask ourselves: Is money really matters to make up one’s mind?

And that’s political corruption!

The Balat Nipu faction have to sponsor food and beverages; including promises and millions of Ringgit worth of projects to entice its potential voters. They did so as they knew (and still assume) that there are potential voters out there who are easily to be bought. Besides, gomen servants are also in dilemma; voting the opposition in means loss of income, promotion, allowances and other privy! Well, we can describe this situation (involving both Balat Nipu and potential voters) as “selling their souls to the devillah!

Anyway, I’m not sure whether the opposition did the same. What I knew of is that whether it’s rain or sunshine, day time or night time, thousands of people attended its political gatherings – based on free will! Are these potential voters waiting for their political savior? It could be; but then, some of them could also be the Balat Nipu spies…

The younger, educated generation – unlike their elders – are not prone to money politics! They do aware about their rights (including hardship); they are prone to change and ascribed to power-based politics!

Should the Balat Nipu faction win this election tomorrow (night), I could assume that its win is due to election fraud (e.g. switching of original ballot boxes with the “crafted” ones)! And it’s up to the defeated faction to ask for vote recount – which is a must!

Well, I’m trying my best to canvass support from my buddies and other youngsters to cast their votes for opposition – till the eleventh hour – God willing! Whether it’s a win or lose game, that would be hard to tell…

So, happy voting, folks! Do bring your own, thinly sliced eraser and share it with other voters tomorrow! Who knows, the (eraser) sharing could be a blessing in disguise – where our state wealth could be shared equally by all ethnic groups found in Sarawak – in the near future!

Just for you, Éffa*…

The “surreal” motive…

As part of its psychological warfare strategies to win the minds of eligible voters, the former gomen has announced that it’ll build a railway (read these) along SCORE, i.e. connecting Similajau down to Tanjong Manis – at a “sama laju” pace?! We doubt it

 

Anyway; did you smell something “fishy” about the proposed project?!

 

Yeah, right! It means more land grabbing for oil palms, coal and (silica) sand (including transportation (aluminium products included) to the port(s)) – just for the benefits of the few…

 

Phew!

 

And we don’t think that it would be profitable to build a railway just to transport people (and (sundry?) goods) to and fro along SCORE!

Would the proposed railway project become “beneficial” for ordinary Sarawakians?!

To preserve OR not to preserve?!

What a joke!

 

I sent forwarded emails to my contacts regarding this hottest, unending issue. Yeah; Abraham (and his allies) made it again!

 

BRAVO to them! (for that unending issue; meaning that the probability to the new DUN Complex is BIG, lah!)…

 

Anyway, one of my contacts gave me the following reply:

 

Dear Sir Tiyung Dayak,

 

Isu ini memang sudah diperbodohkan oleh kartun-kartun dalam kerajaan yang mempunyai pemikiran cetek!


UMNO menyokong PERKASA;


PERKASA terserong dari hala tuju yang diwawarkan oleh UMNO;


Apa itu 1Malaysia?;


Apa itu Bahasa Kebangsaan?;


Apa itu Bahasa Malaysia di sekolah?;


Mereka mengajar, saya belajar daripada mereka;


Akan tetapi, kalaulah si kartun di PERKASA itu bercakap serius, maka biarlah kita gantikan buku teks ke dalam Bahasa Kebangsaan kita; kita gantikan dengan Bahasa Iban, Bahasa Cina, Bahasa Melayu;


Gantikan 1Malaysia dengan 1Iban, 1Cina, 1Melayu;


Gantikan “PERKASA” menjadi “PEKASAM”!

 


L.O.L.!!!

Who’s that (pretty) lady?!

What?!

 

Nay!; this has nothing to do with Mr. Wee Lee Yam nor Aki Jus’s pretty concubine(s) nor the thief minister’s Mdm. Rugged!

 

Yeah; most of you have heard her name before and even read about her story!

 

Her name’s Susanna.

 

Wikipedia reference on her can be found here – taken from “The Story of Susanna” of Daniel, Chapter 13!

 

Her story revolves around wild accusations (or allegations) and judgment

 

So, can you grasp “the moral of the story” and compare it with the current hoo-haa(s)?!

 

Yeah, right; it will be finally revealed – believe it to happen someday!

The Prayer…

The following prayer (or “biau” in Iban) was composed by my colleague – Manang JJ. We based our story from here and here.

 

As usual, do enjoy it, folks!

 

 

The “appeasing gods” ceremony...

 

 

———–

In Christianity, a prayer – to be led by prayer leader(s) is more than enough in asking God’s blessings – with sincere heart(s)! As we can see here, it’s obvious that the candidate serves “two masters”!

 

We do care, of course!

The “(Soft) Living Skills”…

It’s “oral tradition” actually; meaning that the idea presented below was “plucked” from somewhere else!

 

Do enjoy it, folks!

The “Minority Report”* – 18SX, you…

 

Whoring around lately, uh?!

 

The infamous party-hopping (or leapfrogging, whatever!) is a MAJOR political malady in Malaysia. Nay, this isn’t a stereotype statement. It’s all about “human lust and greed (that) induce corruption”, remember!?

 

So far, it happened in Sarawak (and Perak, of course!). Therefore, it’s safe to “dub” these infamouskickdefellas” as “whore-s(l)eeking**” guys!

 

To those political aspirants out there, yup!; you could be one of them – some day! No need to place a bet (on that), as we’ve no doubt about it! It’s kinda2 times 5” thing… And for sure, it’ll haunt them for life!

 

L.O.L.!!!
