Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

But I guess in a case of United States of America and Israeli, it ought to be like this..

"Words speak louder than actions". o.O ?? err..

U.S and International Prosecutions

Isn't it funny when one of the country that strongly uphold human rights, at the same time strongly opposed to ratified the Rome Statute. In other words, they won't accept the International Criminal Court's jurisdiction to be taken towards their citizens when ever it is involved with the international crimes.

From the very first beginning, they had disagree to ratified under Rome Statute. It only takes a while for them to sign in 2000 before they unsigned it back under Bush administration in 2002. In fact, they even threatened to use the their military power if any of their citizens were brought to the ICC by signed into law the American Service-Members' Protection Act (ASPA) as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act. It means that the president has been given an authorization to use by all means to release any of their nationals or allied which being held at Hague. Well, it does gave a pressure to the countries in the region. But why?

White House loudly speaks, strongly suggest and gave their full support for rushing referral of Muammar Al-Gaddafi to the International Criminal Court to be prosecute, yet they themselves who are the one that strongly opposed to ratified for it. *sigh*

Nuclear Free Zone



A poll of Israeli Jews found out that 64 percents of them preferred for the Middle East to establish a nuclear free zone, by means that Israeli itself needs to give up on their nuclear weapon. Well, personally I would consider it as 'day dream'. Obviously, their government won't do that.

However, Israeli was the one who firm with their decision to prevent Iran from acquired any nuclear technology. They did not come up with a single evidence of nuclear weapon acquired by Iran. Israeli who the one that possesses nuclear weapon, Iran possesses nuclear technology used for their development, yet Israeli who keep talking about 'nuclear free zone'?? Are they qualified to speak out?

When the International Atomic Energy Agency publised a report on the Tehran's nuclear program , stating that Iran's activities are military in nature, hundreds of Iranian students formed a human chain of defensive belt around of the Islamic republic's nuclear sites, defending their nuclear site. Why? Well, they did so since Israeli officially considering a military action towards Iran.

Book Review - Beduk Diketuk


Peace be upon you. Well, this is it. My first book review. ^^,

Actually I saw this segment of 'Beduk Diketuk' somewhere on the local paper before. Never have any awareness of 'try to read it'. But when my sister bought it, out of the blue the question crossed in my mind.

"what is so interesting about it?"

Well, my first impression after I read the first article. I was like. It is good. Honestly, it is just a light reading yet full of messages simply trying to put forward. Go and buy it. It's worth to read. You guys also may read it in the Solusi magazine.

Thank you.

The Rise of Female Dominance vs The Barriers of Their Dominance.





Time goes by, globalization is everywhere and female dominance had show their contributions and role in shaping a world modernization. Even though they are not in the same level of dominance as compared to male, yet their role and position in decision-making and keeping the economic flow goes smoothly is undeniable. On the other hand, the barriers are there, slowing down their journey to the top.

Take a nearest example. Something that everyone admit about that. In Malaysian education itself. The total number of female students are far beyond the total number of male students. Even in my class, the total number of female students are double the total number of male students. In fact, female students dominate approximately 64.8 percents total intake into public universities. I wonder if this might be the era towards the extinction of educated male?? No wonder our Prime Minister's wife quoted that such program like Selangkah Ke Universiti (One Step To University) was organized to motivate male students to continue their education at university level.

Well, bravo for that, but how many of us knew that the facts that men are actually giving some space for women in education?!!!

Wow! chill out brah. By the way, maybe I need to find a better and accurate words for that. Even the facts that women contribute more than half of the intake's percentage into public universities, however their number who failed to get a job are also double the men's statistics. Human Resources Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said the Education Ministry statistics showed that more female graduates failed to get a job that is of 21 760 as compare to men which is 10 240. This is actually due to market demands.



Not enough with that, their role also has spread into the economic development, specifically in business. Looking at those aunts at supermarket, trading their stuff is enough to illustrates their dominance. Alright, let's take a real serious view. One of it is in China, future-dominance-economic country in the world, showed from the statistics is that the number of female directorate officers in the civil service increased from 35 in 1981 to 368 in 2008. However, even with that, plus together with the fact that women are increasingly well represented in such professions and field like law, medicine and so forth, but their decision-making are still on the low level.

Concluding Remarks

People trying to show the rise of female dominance, but the barriers are still there. Note to myself and readers, I'm trying as hard as possible not to discriminate any gender. Feminist person always seek for equality to be prevail. Sometimes, equality does not mean if male got 'A', female also need to have an 'A'. Somehow equality means something that one's due. What he and what she is deserved to have.

Individual Rights: Amendment of AUKU 1974


Section 15 of University and College University Act (AUKU) will be amend consistent under Political Transformation Program (PTP). Those who reached the age of majority are allowed to join a political party, yet in order to maintain a university role as an academic institution, the government said that the politics of parties shall not allowed be brought into it.

The reforms was due to the freedom of individual. Speaking of which most of the students keep saying that this is their right was in fact true, and I shall not have any objection on that. Personally, I met many of them who showed their eagerness in politics yet does not show any maturity in giving argument prudently. Giving argument does not mean we condemn a particular thing. It is two different things. Sometimes we might think that we know about 'A', but the question is, do we know the reasons of 'A' ?

For instance, most of us know what the hell is 'BERSIH 2.0'. However, how many of us knew who lead BERSIH 2.0? What is their demands? Other than 8 of their demands, how many of us knew about their demands in regards with freedom of religion? How many of us knew about NED was in fact the crucial part of that demonstration? Do they even know what is NED???

Myanmar Lead ASEAN.


Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has agreed to let Myanmar lead the bloc in 2014.Much expectations has been put upon the country to made changes and reform towards the improvements.

As I view the matter, Myanmar need to do the improvement much on the part of democracy on their own country. It is undeniable that previously the country has been rejected from taking the role as they face a lot on the human rights issues especially among the politicians of their country.

However, as far as I concerned, the decision was made unanimously. So, I believed, the decision was made upon the faith and current factors that allowed the Myanmar to take over the top position to lead ASEAN in 2014.

Be Professional, Or Be A Hero ?

The Examination

I used to face in some kind of emotional-based situations. Maybe something like when my friends asked me the answer in period of an examination. Somehow I feel so pity to him or her, looking their face. damn! yet, it always end up with..

"shhh.."

or maybe some sort of non-verbal language expressing that i do not have any idea for that particular question.



There are only 3 reasons in this circumstances.


1. I do not know the answer though.
2. I don't want to give an answer.. "dude, it is my hard work"
3. I'm just being professional.

out of these 3 reasons, the third one is my priority. I mean, it does affects me the most. I don't bother when people say to me..

"come on la..kawan2 beb.."

"ishh..terok gila kau.."

Well, rules are rules.

The Work

You are a bank officer, and there is a girl who make a loan to a bank and bought a house. She doesn't do the payment. What should you do? Confiscate the house, right. The moment she came by to your office, begging you to extend the date yet you do not have any authority in that particular field.

What would you do?

Break the rules and be a hero?

or just follow the procedure? For me, personally, 'rules are rules'. Maybe I still can provide a little favor, it might be in terms of suggestions or recommendation towards the supervisor or so forth. But not something outside of my authority.


The Law

Correlated with our current issue, the death penalty. You want things to be equal, this is it. A minor crime has been done, the guilty still can be given a counseling and prevent a major things from happening. But when a major crime has been done. The guilty deserved to get based upon on his own action and indirectly gives a lesson to the other community members.

"dura lex sed lex"

"the law is harsh, but it is the law"


Concluding Remark

Everything has a system. These systems work by their own rules and procedures. A world of civilization should be taught with the concept, and apply the rules. For me, the rules made upon the morality and equality. To balance both of these, we removed certain matters. Win-win technique. Thank you.

How You Define It ?

Some matters are too subjective to have its exact definition. Take a simple example, the word 'beautiful'. Yes, it is undeniable that the definition of beautiful has been stated in a dictionary, despite with that, when it comes to a particular perception you will have a different meaning, understanding and aspects that has been taken into account.

"for me..she's beautiful if she is tall, have a blue eyes..bla bla bla"

"i would say that a girl who are able to play guitar is considered as beautiful"







Here is the reason of why some matters like this has been given just a general definition.

Because there are too many aspects that need to consider

For you, someone who are able to play drum and guitar are beautiful but for some other guys, they might define a smart girls as beautiful. It's a matter of personal perceptions though.

Am I going to type about this? Beauty? No, of course not. As a matter of facts, it is about 'terrorism'.

So, lets take an eyes onto the definition of terrorism given by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

"terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against person or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives"

Since they are the one who listed out the names of terrorists, so they are the one who define what is terrorism. The funny thing is, they (America) is the terrorist themselves. Well, this is just a personal thoughts and views. Why?

Its better to look back at their own definition before I define themselves as terrorist right?

Based on what aspects?

1. "unlawful use of violence"

The word unlawful can be considered as 'no right', 'no legal declaration', 'no authority' and so forth that are based on the 'law'. Do you know that the action taken by the President of United States of America in regards with the military action towards Libya was unlawful? Because he actually failed to get an approval from the right authority, the Congress.

Section 8 of Article 1 of United States Constitution states that;

"The Congress shall have power to.....declare war..."

To declare war, President shall get an approval from The Congress. Did he? No, not at all. Micheal Dorf, a constitutional law expert and professor of law at Cornell University said that this action (military action towards Libya by United States of America) is considered as unconstitutional.

Well, that fulfilled the first aspect of what is terrorism.

2. "to intimidate or coerce government or civilian population, in furtherance of political or social objectives"



Iran, Afghanistan, Libya and many more. They killed hundred thousands of them. What is the common thing between all these three countries ? What are the benefits that they will gain by doing so towards these countries?

On its surface, the purpose of attacking Libya is in order to keep Moammar from continuing his attacks on civilians in defiance on international demands. But truth to be told, it is to about political control and oil. Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa. Isn't a very good reason? To protect? Then, what the hell with all the killing of Libyan's civilians? Come on guys, you are not that idiot to deny their true objectives.

The funny part is, they gave the their usual excuses of killing those civilians. Wrong hit target ? Thousands of them died and they claimed a 'wrong hit' ??
I guess it is a clear cut to show that the words or the elements of intimidate and coerce had already been fulfilled.

I Karoshi or I Lazy?


If you guys ever wondered what does it mean by karoshi, here's the answers.

Karoshi actually means "death from overwork". It is originated from the book published by three doctors in 1982 who entitled the book, "karoshi". Surely the book noted many victims died because of overworking. *usually worked more than 60 hours a week on average.

"workaholic".

That is the best term to describe.
People used to call me 'workaholic' when I was in higgh secondary school since I always found myself snowed under the assignments. *Do we called it assignments ?? haha..

Now? *Literally now, at this moment, exactly from 1.30 pm 'till 5 pm, 22nd of August, 2011. ^^,

'lazyholic" ?? hmmm...

Japanese poeple are totally rock who doesn't get bored when they keep work and work and work over and over again.

*did i say rock?? o.O

Well of course, I didn't know if someone has died because he got nothing to do. If you do know so, please inform me, I better put my *A double S* onto some nasty work. maybe.

p.s1: one of my bucket list is to do nothing. I mean it.


p.s2: Because i have nothing to do..i posted a new entry.. whoot! :)

Financial Support or Financial Crime?

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you, my readers.

Have you guys ever wondered how the bank generate their money over and over again? It is a non-stop process of sucking out our money. They are the 'blood sucker'.

Fist of all, this is not going to be a long entry. A short and simple one. Easier for you guys to understand.

How did the bank make money? Simple. By using our own money.

Let us take a simple example. A is a person who are the one deposited his money to a safe place. Well of course, in a bank. While B is a person who a re going to borrow the money from the bank.
Did B actually borrow the money from the bank? Bank's money? No. It is A's money.

A deposited RM1, 000. The bank will reserve 10 % from the money deposited. In such cases, the bank made a policy that the depositor are not allowed to withdraw more that 10 %. Then the bank will use A's money to lend to B for RM900 together with interest. So by the time when B needs to pay for the loan, he need to pay more than RM900 right?

So this process will cycle over and over again. Loan means their income. That's how they do it. By actually using our own money.

Let us take one real analogy. The most pertinent with our country system. Whenever any person wants to make a loan, they need to fill up the application form and usually they are advised to open an account with the minimum of RM20. As this person wants to have a card so that it will facilitate the flow of their loan money, he need to pay the extra cost of RM8. At this moment, the bank already made a money of RM18. RM8 for the card and at least, in your account there must be RM10, reserved by the bank.

If the bank generated of RM18 per person. Imagine that there are 100 persons per day that make a loan. Rm1, 800 per day. Now, imagine that the bank (let us called it as Bank Eddy) have 100 branches all over the country. That makes up of RM 18, 000.

Happy Birthday !


Assalamualaikum..

This is just a short entry wishing to my beloved prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for his 58th birthday.

Happy birthday..happy 58th. You rock!!

May Allah bless you and make everything easier for you. Amin.


Who Decide it?

Assalamualaikum and hey guys. Ok, this is quite long since my last update right. Plus, I have no intention to post about the issue that I am about to discuss in this entry actually. Old story.

But, since there are a few of them who kept talking about this.."Melaka Maju", so it would be better for them to know..who or which authority declared Malacca as a delevop state.

So I quoted some important parts from the news...

"OECD iktiraf Melaka negeri maju" ~ Utusan
"OECD declared Malacca as a develop state"
~Utusan

Ok, so they claimed that OECD was the one who declared Malacca as a develop state.
*OECD, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

SO, what say OECD?

"Malacca develop status self-declared, says OECD official" ~ The Malaysian Insider

In fact, OECD has no authority at all to declare which state as a develop state. Why? Because they don't even have any single guideline to do such thing. However, I advise you, don't jump into conclusion yet. Because it is actually depends on the state itself to have such perception or declaration.

Yes, Malacca still have a lot of things that need to improve. I admit that but for me, Malacca deserved to be declared as a develop state.

Reason?

OECD is an organisation which grouping the world's 33 richest countries with the higest GDP. What is GDP? GDP gives the definiton of gross domestic product which refers to market value of all final goods and services prduced by a country. Malacca GDP had already reached US$14, 261 as compared as the lowest GDP amongs the 33 richest coutries with the highest GDP was Turkey at US$13, 000.


p.s 1: in 2009 only, Selangor, Johor, Sarawak and Penang together with KUALA LUMPUR contributed 62.7 % to national GDP

Conclusion: Develop state does not represents a higher GDP in which those states mentioned actually have a higher GDP as compared to Malacca's GDP. Example, China's GDP is 10 times higher than Singapore's GDP and 2020 China expected to be the largest economy in the world.

Get it? No authority may have any jurisdiction to declare any state as a develop state

Example 2: compare both of it..

Malacca will build Disneyland-style theme park only with 21 hectares, estimated cost of RM300 million only.

While undeveloped state like Johor itself is having a participation for two mega project as such as Legoland with 51 hectares, estimated cost of RM750 million and Pinewoods Studios, the largest stage provider in Europe. In facts this studios are expected to generate an economic profit of 1 billion. Plus, Pinewoods Studios is best known for its movies like HARRY POTTER, James Bond, Lara Croft, Batman, Superman and etc.

Recommended Movie !

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.

I found it very interesting as this movie, which I just watched it by yesterday, very consistent with our theme. Mother's Day.

To be short. It is based on true story in which it centers around the effort of a single mother seeking a lost son. What makes it interesting is when she had to face with the corruption of LAPD. Thrown into a psychotic ward without a legal consent in order to shut her mouth who claim that LAPD is making a mistake by sent a stranger boy to her.

It is a story about a hope of a mother. "Changeling"

I.S.A Is Justice ? : Part 2

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

The main purpose of this entry is to bring as much as possible the definitions, concept and practical way in regards with I.S.A, justice and its shortcoming.

Does ISA Against Malaysia Supreme Law ?



"What is I.S.A ?"

I.S.A actually stands for Internal Security Act. To be full, it stands for Internal Security Act 1960. It is one of the additional rules of criminal procedure. Besides ISA 1960, other examples of additional rules of criminal procedure are Child Act 2001 and Dangerous Drug Act 1952. Basically, it is being applied in Malaya in order to combat the Malayan Communist Party when at that particular time, Malaya in a state of emergency.

Under part IV of miscellaneous provisions, section 73 of power to detain suspected person, subsection 1 provides that any police officer may without warrant arrest and detain pending enquiries any person in respect of whom he has reason to believe;

(a) that there are ground which would justify his detention under section 8; and
(b) that he has acted or is about to act or is likely to act in manner prejudicial to the security of Malaysia or any part thereof or to the maintenance of essential services therein or to the economic life thereof.

So, as far as I concerned, section 73 subsection 1 (b) already explain roughly in regards with the detention of any suspect is in order to prevent or halt any threats to national security. That is why it is somehow to be called as 'preventive detention'. This preventive detention is what we all known as 'Detention Without Trial' (DWT).

Once a person is detain under this Act, something that people should bear in mind is that they should not interpret the definition of detention without trial into a narrower prospect in regards with the place of detention, in regards with the restriction in the form of communication, close contact and so forth. This is one of the Acts that been given an exception towards what is so called as 'detention without trial'.

One may throw out their question by standing onto the Article 5 clause 4 of Part II, entitled Fundamental Liberties of Federal Constitution which provides that where a person is arrested and not release he shall without unreasonable delay, and in any case within 24 hours (excluding the time of any necessary journey) be produced before a magistrate and shall not be further detained in custody without the magistrate's authority.

Yet, at the same time this article provide an exceptions in 2 ways in which

i. in respect of a person arrested or detained under legislation pertaining to restricted residence such as under the Restricted Residence Act 1933

ii. in respect of those arrested or detained under immigration laws.

But most important things that we should keep remind is that there are 4 laws that allowed for this concept of detention without trial as such as, first and foremost Internal Security Act 1960, secondly Dangerous Drugs (Special Preventive Measures) Act 1985, Emergency (Public Order and Prevention Crime) Ordinance 1969 and last but not least is Restricted Residence Act 1933.

Therefore, it is clearly states that ISA is not against any supreme law of Malaysia indirectly it shows the validity of the ISA in the eyes of law.

Justice In Action



"What is justice ?"

Took only one formal definition of justice from a law philosopher. According to Aristotle, interprets justice as giving one what is due to him and giving one what is his own. As for the definitions of justice according to or from the Islamic perspective is placing something in its rightful place as well as it gives the definition according equal treatment to others or reaching a state of equilibrium in transaction.

In simple way, we could say as give what he deserved and take what is not belong to him.

Article 11(1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) provides that everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defense.

While Article 11(2) of UDHR states that no one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.

Obviously it against the concept of justice both from western philosopher and from Islamic perspective as well it is against our universal human rights.

As what I actually trying to show is the needs to avoid the concept of 'arrest first, investigate later'.

Do you deserved something until it is proven that it is yours ? So, when this concept of 'arrest first, investigate later' was applied within our community, it shows the injustice towards the people and thus denying the facts that everyone is actually entitled with their rights and liberties.

"Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberty to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition"
(An-Nahl verse 90)

Istishab, is one of the two important principles guided jurists' use of evidence in making ijtihad. Istishab gives the definitions of continuity in which the most famous example of this is the principle of Islamic law that a person is innocent until proven guilty. A simple question has been raised, can we punish someone who do not been proven guilty ?

Concluding Remarks

As people trying to prove that this Act is valid in the eyes of law, why not these people trying to show the contradiction between this Act and justice as well as against our religious view ?

It is not a risk for me to say that the question in regards whether it is against our supreme law, and most importantly whether it is against the concept of justice and concept of guilty from Islamic perspective has been clearly states and answered. Where is the shortcoming ? Obviously, I already states that indirectly.

Thank you.

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.


This is technically based on my points of view in results of my readings and observations. Most importantly, I am not representing any party or individual except for myself.

Express It, But Obey Them.

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Freedom of Expression


Day by day, we all alert with the news regarding our politicians behaviour, both for the leaders of the country and those who played their role in balancing the administrative system. Rumors and stories pertaining to them and their political rivalry have never been deserted. I'm pretty sure some of you have been through with all of these stuff. Comments, condemn, giving out your arguments in using some sort of rhetorical hyperboles.

Among our society. Freedom of expression is their main principle.

"Freedom ? What is it ?"

Forget about the definitions of freedom from legal dictionary, from oxford or what ever it takes to throw out the formal concept on what is actually freedom. Why ? Because I don't give a damn about it. Basically, I'm just being sarcastic.

Frankly speaking, well actually frankly typing, this is what are we going through with. Some of you do not even have a basic knowledge either on the perspective of the practical way or theories. Despite, these guys are actually the one who keep condemning even though they have never been through the theories from the root point.

So, this is your formal definitions of freedom ? Freedom from any hard evidences, theories and even practical way in throwing out your opinion and ideology. Isn't it ? Why ?

Because you don't give a damn about it!


Obey The Tyrant


Some say, our government trying to play their role as a tyranny. Someone who is doing injustice towards another person. But have you ever questioned to yourself, is it relevant for us to overthrow the government when the most expected consequences that lies ahead is only a chaotic ? Have you ?

Questioning on 'what' is most preferable way and closely related with the concept of realism.

As according to Al-Ghazali, a prominent Islamic scholar who had contributed immensely towards the Islamic law, theology, tassawuf and philosopher, obey the tyrant is compulsory if and only if the only consequences that awaits is chaoitic. Please, please and please, read every single of my words carefully so that I don't have to explain over and over again. Islam definitely opposed the injustice.

But actually this is his most contoversional opinion regarding this matter. Yet, he never states specifically about the actual way of a 'leader who being injustice towards his citizens'. I meant, in what way. He never states that.

Yet, in his time, his sultan is the one who are going to ensure the validity of a khalifah.

For the one who using a realpolitic approach, it is a view for a particular urgency. Note that obey here is closely pertaining to don't overthrow them.

That's all.

Peace be upon you.

Panic! At The Disco - Sarah Smiles

Peace be upon you.

I would like to apologize that I cannot make it for the continous part for my previous entry. It's quite long actually. I mean, really a long one. From neo-marxist theory, orthodox economics theory, the opinion from the Poulantzas, the idea from Keynes a reseacher from Britain talked about the role of the ruler in economy, the structuralist theory, about the 5 reasons why the ruler should play a crucial part in economy, etc.

These are among the theories which led to a role of a ruler or a government or a party who held their position to rule the country, to organise and manage the economic as well as prepare the economic structure. Indirectly, illustrating the idea of democracy of where we choose the leader to choose the future of our country in a way of financial and economic matters.

I just want to share this video..my new favourite song. ^^

The People's Sovereignty.


May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.

Before I get into the main points of this entry, I would like to make a brief of two things I've done for today and yesteday ever since I did not up date any new entry for yesterday.

Number one; there wasn't much thing I did yesterday except for attended international book fair. Unless you are a person who came just to play around, then it is not a risk for me to assume which you would understand that attending a book fair will took you a whole day. That's it for yesterday.

Number two; for today, spending some time with my friends at swimming pool, having our breakfast at mamak store, playing a guitar and chatting around was really a fun things to do especially when I was not being around with them lately. So, it was a great relief for me.

Alright, let's get straight to the point. This entry is not about supporting any political party or promoting any political ideology. I just want to make a short comment in regards with the power of the people. The power to choose.

"err..." o.O

Neither the Sarawak general election nor the power of the people to choose are a new story to tell. People usually tend to give out their criticism petaining to the process of the election. Basically, it is not my intention to do that. But a criticism and a short comment which regards to the attitude showed among our society who do not care about their right to detemine the future of their country.

We live in one of the country which practicing democracy. So, maximise the advantages.

"What is democracy ?"

Of course, there are a few definitions on what is actually democracy. Yet, the most preferable definition brought by this term is about the government of the people, by the people and for the people. I'm not in a position to explain further on the concept of democracy since I am pretty sure it is not a poblem for you to understand it.

Bear in mind, when you choose your leader, you are about to choose the economic patterns, lifestyle and so forth. These are the people who are going to decide how to use your money and limit your budget.

"Does economy correlated with the politics ?"

Take an acoount who decide, promoting or regulate any economic laws. Somehow these guy will use the economic way to stabilise their political position. I meant, most of the time. We choose them, for them, to serve to enhance the national financial, thus lead us to a better lifestyle.

I believe I already told about what is deregulation in my previous entry entitled, Financial Laws and Money Management: Crisis.

It is about the removement of the government control in financial business especially. People complaint, they do their job. Have you wondeing what kind of things / matters which people usually complaining about ? Financial stuff isn't it ?

Can you picture that ? I'm trying to show the connections between choosing you leader in politics indirectly, choosing the future of your country in a very very very short way in terms of economy.

to be continue..

p.s1: this is the second entry which have two parts. Another entry is entitled, The Quran Being Divine: Part 1

and


p.s2: I might continue for the second part the day after tomorrow since I have something to do tomorrow.

May the peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you.

Wasted Money !

Peace be upon you..

As I kept my eyes on my desktop, playing FIFA 11, out of the blue I heard my brother spoke to me. He said my notebook doesn't have any wifi problem. He just need to deal with installation of some sort of software.

When I was in Kuantan, the problem of receiving wifi connection was getting worse and worse. Day by day up till my notebook alert with the warning of 'no wireless connection available'. I brought my notebook to computer shop somewhere in Mega Mall. So, the technician there took some time to identify the main problem.

To be short, at first they installed something into my computer. Claimed that kind of thing was missing. Yet, the problem was still unsolved. After that, they did reformat.

"the thing (I forgot the name) was kept infected by the virus". Said the technician.

Expecting to find a way out since they said even we installed it, the virus will infect it. So, reformat is the only way. At last, they claimed that my notebook's wireless receiver was broken. Even he said that he already ask the other technician too. Installed that thing and reformat is the only way to identify the problem.

Paid them some money. Go to another shop to find some wireless adapter instead of invest my money to fix the motherboard. Obviously, that is the cheaper way. Total up, it costs me almost one hundred bucks. Now, I don't even need the wireless adapter ever since my brother already fixed it by did some installation of software. Even my brother said that my notebook's wireless receiver doesn't have any problem.

The irony thing here is...how did the technician did qualified to be 'a technician' ? Go find another job dude. sigh..

Picture of the day said: "for any iPhone user, auto-correct is something usual in text a msg..but this time? haha"

Cigarettes vs Shisha : Ban Both of It !


Peace be upon you.

United Arab Emirates (UAE) already took a wise step by actually banning smoking in public area. Now, the Federal Anti-smoking draft law is worked out in order to increase the prices of the cigarettes in UAE.

Thankful, our government (Malaysia) did increase the price of the cigarettes. Yet, does by merely making its price expensive really works ? Hmm..I am sure some extra steps is needed to achieve our goal which is to reduce the percentage of smokers.

"Why not trying to achieve zero smokers instead of just to reduce it ?"

(-_-ll) Is this question a joke or what ? Now let me ask you back, can we ban 100 percents the import / process of tobacco in Malaysia ?

"Alright, loaded question, you may proceed" :D

But actually, neither the price of the cigarettes nor the banned of the smoking in public areas that I wanted to stress out. In the same news which states about the action taken by UAE, they also states that UAE banned shisha shops in residential areas. This is the good example. Yeah, we did banned shisha in a few places. For instance, Kota Bharu municipal has banned all the food outlets from allowing shisha smoking at their premises. That's not enough. UEA banned shisha shops in residential areas and even now the draft bylaws in UAE are being worked out to move the shops away from the residential buildings.

Well, frankly say that (based on my observation), people are way more courageous to try shisha when actually smoking shisha is 200 times worse than smoking cigarettes, said Middle East experts. Despite that, it's totally weird when people say..

"chill, I'm smoking shisha, not cigarettes" huh ?! It's a big LOL there. Maybe because of the flavour. I guess so..

Enough comments on that. That's all for this time. Peace be upon you..

*By the way, there will be new section in each of my entry called, "picture of the day". Enjoy.. :)

Financial Laws and Money Management : Crisis

Peace be upon you, brothers and sisters of my muslim relatives.

As I read about this news, I would like to point out some comments pertaining to this matter. A short one.

Today, on 17th of April, Senator Tom Coburn and Senator Carl Levin recommend an additional changes upon their financial laws of United States of America. As we all know that fraudulent mortgage is reported as one of among the findings.

Their recommendation is made following with the question on the report regards with the causes of financial crisis in 2008. Yeah, they ought made some changes. Seriously.


In 1999, there were a lot of a these kind of crimes. Fraud. They actually obtained the money by deceiving a particular party or a bank. Maybe some sort of exaggerated words or informations in order to get a larger loan. Simple way to say that is like when you say that your mom is somebody, then it won't be a problem for you to pay back the money. In United States Federal court, mortgage fraud is prosecuted as mail fraud, money laundering and etc. This is also one of the reason which triggered to a financial crisis. One of the example which involving money laundering is regards with the action of Credit Suisse, as they had laundered the money for Iran nuclear program. Crimes in financial industry is something in common to say. What to expect ? It's all about money right.


Before I give some explanation why this practice leads to a financial crisis in United States of America, well basically leads to global financial crisis, I would like to point out one important case which is correlated with fraudulent mortgage.

In 2006, 15 defendants were indicted on 79 counts of bank loan fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and so on, as it is correlated with the mortgage fraudulent that targeted the metro-Atlanta area housing market. This case has led to an involvement from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Housing and Urban Development. Obviously, it is a serious case.

Now, let me demonstrates to you in a very simple way to show and illustrates to you how this led to financial global crisis.I don't even think this would required you to think out of the box as it is a simple things to think.

What is the consequences when you lend a money to a someone who obviously won't be able to repay ?

Imagine like this..

A = a person who borrow your money

B = your friend /campus-mate who is selling maggi, coca-cola, books and etc to you as you are his or her regular customer and most of his or her income is actually coming from you.

C= assistant for B a.k.a B's roommate.

Here we go, A, who wanted to borrow RM1, 000 out of Rm 1, 250 from your allowance. *also imagine that you are a foundation student like me*. A higher debt means a higher rates of interest right ? Logic. But what if the loan were given to someone who cannot pay you back ? Nahh..here you go. A financial crisis. You can't spend more. You have to really really really limit your budget on the other things. Shoes, clothes, books, foods and so on. Does this merely affects you alone ? Totally not. The income for B would be slightly decrease due to lack of demand from you.

In a mean time, C, who acts as an assistant for B, who usually facing some difficulties to handle his business as before, there is a lot of demands made from you. Now, B have to lessen his products. Do you need a hand when there isn't much things to handle around ? So, B have to fire C from his current job.

Can you picture that ?

Now, imagine that you as a main bank which indirectly represents economy of United States of America, A as your citizens, and B as another country, while C as B's citizens. Simple isn't it.

Well, basically, mortgage fraudulent is happening when a particular person getting a large amount of loan by deceiving. He lies about his current income. He claimed that he is a boss of nonexistent company and so forth when actually the amount of money borrowed is far beyond his capability.

There is another reason which triggered a financial crisis which actually played the same concepts. The different things is, mortgage fraud is a crime, yet this is a legal matter in the eyes of law.

"Subprime"


This is what the investment bank did in 1999 if I'm not mistaken. They actually preferring subprime loan, as they carry a higher interest rates and this has led to a massive increase in predatory lending. This kind of subprime means give a loans to people who may have difficulties maintaining the repayment schedule. In large amount. One of the risks that the banks have to face is that, there is none of the possession of property assets that could be used or acts as a guarantee or security.

To tell exactly the reasons behind the economic crisis in 2008, there are many things to point out. The reasons on how the banks in Iceland losses 100 billion, while their cross domestic products was only 13 billion. Seriously, many things to say about the reasons. Despite that, there are one last thing that I would like to put forward. This thing is also one of the reason of the global financial crisiss. Mean while, this is what they, the world financial experts prefer for.

What is that ?

Deregulation. It means to remove a national or local government from the controls or rules in business or in any other activity. This is what experts trying to do. Leave all the jobs which pertaining to financial to them *experts*. No interference from the government. In 2000, Iceland made a deregulation. What is the impact ? A lot. Financial and environment. This guy took the risk using the public money. Make an investment on something which in need of larger amount of money. Build some sort of project and causes a pollutions.

In our modern days. Especially in Islamic country like us. They are trying to separate any religious things onto a matter of handling our money. "Leave the job to experts."

That's all from me. Feel free to drop any comments or arguments. *If there's any*

Peace be upon you muslim readers, and adios guys.

My Journey and A Scary Bus Driver.

Assalamualaikum.

Well actually I'm not going to tell about what was happening during the MUET's examination. ^^ Somehow, after my MUET, I took the bus from chini to kuantan.

What I wanted to tell is my experience during my journey from Chini to Kuantan and from Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur.

Ok, while almost every passengers in the bus (Chini - Kuantan) were sleeping, I was really felt uncomfortable since I felt like I was sitting on the rock. So, I can't really concentrate on my sleepy mood. I took the chance to observed their behaviour. Observed ? haha. :P
This would be much fun than sitting and listening to some kind of old song. Out of the blue, I saw the driver's eyes. He's closing his eyes ! hoho..

The bus driver actually driving the bus in his sleepy
mood. Gosh, it is obvious and he kept doing his 'head-banging dancing'. You know...up and down..up and down while his right foot kept pressing on the accelerate pedal. haha..
And what did I do ? Kept looking at him la..haiya. ^^ Alhamdulillah, we got there safely. teettt.

Oh, before we getting down from the bus, I saw one girl, age around 18-20 I guess. Received 10 bucks from the bus conductor after they had a short conversation. "buat belanja.." If I'm not mistaken, this is what I heard la..hmm..actually she does looks like a good girl. An educated girl. Somehow after received the money, she turned back and saw me saw her received the money. Right after that, she turned to the front again. Oh yeah, I guess the other two girls which is her friends also saw what she did. ^^o

Now, this is the story of my journey from Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur. It's all began with this. When I showed to him my ticket, he was looking at me. Gave back my ticket, allowed me to enter the bus. He's looking at me again. I guess it's normal. To ensure that I'm not some kind of terrorist. :P

My seat number is 1. A single chair. *I don't like stranger sitting besides me, and the reason why I love to sit at the front is because the driver is the only person I trust in the bus.

The seats on the first raw was merely filled by me and no one on the second raw. I guess there were only about 14-17 of passengers in the bus. Now, the journey began. Everything was normal. Up till I heard the bus driver was talking to himself. erk ? o.O

At first, I'm just ignoring him. But he started to freaking me out when he kept turning around and looking at me. What the ?? Seriously ! I was pretending to sleep, and he kept doing so while talking to himself.

Well, the driver was not as handsome as this guy la.. ^^. But this is how he did.

There were two road accident occurred. As the bus passing by each of the accident. He was babbling to himself. oh yeah, the part when he turn around a few seconds to see me, he also did so while talking...anddd laughing. perhhhh...scary wohhh. I looked at my watch, it is now almost 8 pm. So, everything turns darker. The bus driver now kept looking on the mirror to see the passengers at the back. I also did turn at the back to see them. Almost everyone were sleeping.

Looking in the mirror, then turning around to look at me. Talking to himself and laughing.

Freak!


I felt like I was the only one in the bus. Ever watched any thriller movie when the character in the bus or taxi, plus in the middle of a night and then suddenly the driver talking to himself and looking at that character ? Yeah, that is the situation. haha..What I did ? I stand up, walking to the back, find an empty seat and sat there.

But everything was fine. As soon as I reached to KL around at 9.15 pm, straight away I got down from the bus. ^^

Thats all. ^^

Ideology vs Style of Writing


Ideology and writing style


What is ideology ?

What is style of writing ?

Do both of it give the same definitions and concepts ?

Bismilahirramanirahim..

Assalamualaikum to all muslim readers, and hello to non-muslims. First of all, this entry have nothing to do neither with Islam, international nor law. So, I would rather labelled it as 'complaint' instead of any of these three labels. There are three main points that I would like to point out in this entry, in which regarding to my ideology and style of writing, way to express our ideology and how our ideology develop.

Basically, whenever I or any other bloggers out there posting
their entry which regards to their opinion, thoughts, points of view and so on we could actually see their style of writing. In a mean time, each of them, including me would rather stands by our decisions, arguments, beliefs and whatsoever terms that you called that.

So, someone told me that my style of writing showing my ideology. Each of my entry. Is it ? Which means, my entries are my ideology ? No offence, but I think you got the wrong concept and idea what is actually ideology and what is actually a style of writing.

In a simple way, style of writing actually indicates about the manner which a particular writer chooses his or her own way to address an issue. We could say that style of writing actually shows how the writer choosing his or her own machinery of writing. It means, the structure and system of an organizations or process. For instance, short, simple sentences, including the usage of vocabularies and so forth.

I give you an example of my style of writing. I used to includes some sort of second character in most of my entries. Something like internal monologue. Any words or sentences with an italic form is actually indicating of my internal monologue. Like this..

"Don't you think it's quite nonsense to give an explanation regarding this simple things ?"

Get it ? So now, what is ideology ?

Psychologically, it means the social cognition. But in a simple sentence, it illustrates our beliefs, principles, a set of ideas and etc which shared by each of a members of a particular group in society. Somehow we will express it indirectly even though usually in our everyday discourse we express and throw our ideology in derogatory way. Undeniable. Inevitable.

So, does every and each of my entries illustrates my ideology. When it is more on laws and international, I believe so, but the rest ? Nope. The answer is there. Asking about axiomatic things is ridiculous. Somehow, saying something or responding towards something doesn't need our ideology. Talking or interpreting or evaluating your friends is not using our ideology. It is attitude. It is the way how that person perceives our thoughts.

I'll give you another example. Does ideology and philosophy is the same thing ? Totally not. It seems so but actually ideology is distinct with philosophy. Ideology is a set of ideas and beliefs. Philosophy in contrast examine the way ideology affects the other. Thus, sometimes interpreting something or someone is actually showing our attitudes.
Scheme of mind.

Expressing Ideology


As I mentioned just now, most of the time we actually throwing out our ideology either directly or indirectly in a derogatory way. I know you have your own stand, your own belief and principles. Somehow your ideology is right. Despite all of that, putting out your argument to ensure that people adhere and conform with you in way of no respects is very rude and harsh. There's a polite way to do that. Honestly, sometimes I did that.

For instance, everyone have their own thoughts and set of ideas regarding the politics. I believe most of them have a different belief and principles. Yet, expressing it with no respects is not a good way. When opposing something and trying to make people conform with you by actually accusing and using rhetorical way of expressing is not a fair responds.

Developing Ideology


Sometimes the way we express our ideology can be considered as our ideology. Why ? Because we develop ideology through our experience from surrounding, in results of our social interactions in social situations. It is one of the part of our social organisations and so forth.

I'm not asking for you to totally opposed any other ideology that distinct with your ideology. A little considerations and discussions are the good ways. Since the other members of the other groups living in a different environment, therefore, their ideology will develop in a different ways. Some people lives as a woman, discriminate in each of their actions and activities, thus it's a big chances for them to develop to be a feminist. Asking for a total equal opportunities and rights, and I mean a total equal rights. Can we ? Well, it is based on their ideology.

wahh..I feel so sleepy right now. That's all. Peace be upon you muslim readers and have a nice sleep guys. ^^,
