Stop wasting food, think of the poor, needy and hungry

Malaysians waste more than 15,000 tonnes of food daily and that is enough to feed millions of hungry mouths daily.

Given the current economic hard times, it is time for the federal government, restaurateurs and hoteliers to seriously consider effective measures to stop the wastage immediately.

“They must also consider doing good to mankind by giving away clean leftovers to the poor and hungry,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the poor and hungry “are really feeling the pinch of a sluggish global economy that is also affecting domestic economic activities and performance”.

“Really, why can’t the federal government, restaurateurs and hoteliers show magnanimity to the needy and poor during the current hard economic times?
“Why dump food into garbage bins when there are many hungry mouths to feed, including vagrants,” he said, adding that cle…

Gangsters, mob are now the law in Malaysia?

The above video clip says it all about what is the law in Malaysia today.

And who is to blame for such gangster-like public behaviour? Who has given them the encouragement and confidence to behave as such?

“Many Malaysians have plenty of views on such public matters of concern. But what are the authorities, especially the police, doing about it?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
He said the video clip was shot at the scene of an accident.
“If there is an accident, let the police handle it, right? But no. Gangster-like individuals and mob take over the law at the scene,” he added.
Syed Razak said whether the car driver was drunk or not, “it is for the police to investigate and act accordingly within the law”.
“Definitely not the mob way of the ‘gangster’ and his cohorts. The police must, therefore, act against those who took the law into their own h…

How is China conquering the world? Learn from them fast!

How is China conquering the world? Learn from them fast!
It looks like China today is conquering the world in both economic and technological innovation.

In so doing, it is now acknowledged as a world power and China has achieved global status in just four decades or so.

“Their global achievements are nothing short of amazing. From a poverty-stricken country, China is now set to overtake the US as the world’s No.1 economy,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said China and its people had achieved international success in various science and economic fields solely because “they are a hard working civilisation who are also equally very practical”.

“Quality education and excellence are what they strive for in life. They also recognise and treasure talent that cannot be replaced by any other consideration,” he added.

Syed Razak said Malaysia was far more wealthy and superior in infrastructure than China when it gained Merdeka (Independence) from the British in 1957.

Pek Moh reiterates pledge to serve with sincerity and honesty
Pek Moh Bukit Lanjan Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff reiterated his pledge to serve with sincerity and honesty if he wins in N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14).

“Not only that. I will also speak out for the Bukit Lanjan folk without fear or favour. I will serve all in Bukit Lanjan, irrespective of race and religion,” he said in his address at a dinner meeting with officials and grassroots from seven Kayu Ara Umno branches. 

Syed Razak said: “This gathering is organised in the spirit of the Holy Ramadhan month and to forge closer ties and unity with Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) comrades.

“My political conviction and hope is to be given the chance to serve as a truly 1Malaysia assemblyman, an elected representative for Malaysians.”

Subang Gerakan chairman Chong Chee Yen told the Umno officials and grassroots that his division would give its full support to Syed Razak to win N.37 in GE14.

Stop blabbering, get down to work, what’s there to be proud of Proton?

Stop blabbering, get down to work, what’s there to be proud of Proton?
It looks like it is still business as usual at Proton led by DRB-Hicom Bhd group managing director Syed Faisal Albar.

Instead of getting down to work to clean up its own house, Syed Faisal continues to syiok sendiri (self glorifying), blabbering away that “Proton is still a national brand” despite the selling of a 49.9% stake of Proton Holdings Bhd to a China-based company.

“Really, what is Syed Faisal so proud of? From a 100% Malaysian-owned outfit, Proton is now set (pending the inking of the sale) to become a joint-venture (JV) with China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co.
“What Malaysian national brand is Syed Faisal blabbering about? Jangan syiok sendiri,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
He said it would do well for Syed Faisal to remain humble and “get down to work to help clean up the Proton house to save the JV”.

Sale of Proton a blessing in disguise

Sale of Proton a blessing in disguise
https://youtu.be/x46BjIngtMk(VIDEO)
The sale of Proton to China’s Geely is not only timely, it is also a blessing in disguise.

The Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)-powered cars are set to become obsolete, meaning it is a sunset industry.
A US report from a Stanford economist even boldly claimed that petrol cars are set to vanish in eight years!

“So, the sale of Proton to Geely, China’s automaker, is not only wise and cutting losses, the current federal government is also thinking out of the box to save Proton from total loss,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said, after 34 years since the birth of Proton, it was crystal clear that Proton cannot survive in the hugely competitive global car industry. (Read this for context: http://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/05/bukit-lanjan-yes-end-bailouts-for-proton.html)

Yes, end bailouts for Proton

Yes, end bailouts for Proton
Proton was founded in 1983 as Malaysia’s maiden national car company in 1983 under the Dr Mahathir Mohamed federal government era.


Its monopoly as a local car manufacturer was challenged when Perodua was established in 1993.
Proton’s automobile market share then started to slide until today for many reasons, foremost of which are its inability to innovate its technology and to improve product quality.
“Today, consumer confidence in Proton cars is at its lowest ever, if not rock bottom,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
After 34 years, and that’s a very, very long time, Syed Razak said the federal government “is selling off Proton”.
“Malaysians just don’t have the business acumen and innovative technology to succeed in an extremely competitive global automobile industry.
“For some reason or other, Malaysians don’t seem to be able to compete in the car industry,” he added.
Syed Razak said Malaysians should welcome the sale of Proton to Chinese …

Crime prevention and education programmes in Malaysia now need to cover cyber crime

Crime prevention and education programmes in Malaysia now need to cover cyber crime
Fraud cases in cyberspace ballooned by 20% in Malaysia last year compared with 2015.

Besides fraud, the top cyber crime were intrusion, spam and malicious code.
“It looks like Malaysians are using their cyber innovative minds for all the wrong reasons,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
He said the rising cyber crime rate means the traditional and conservative crime prevention and education programmes and campaigns need a total overhaul.
“Both state and federal governments must now take proactive measures to gather various professionals to brainstorm and come up with new strategies in anti-crime and education efforts that cover cyberspace,” he added.
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Elecion (GE14), said the previous community crime prevention and education programmes and efforts “are obviously no more effective and outdated”.

It’s now unsafe to eat out, too many fake foods being exposed globally

https://youtu.be/3zolK56sBMU(VIDEO: Fake plain buns/cup cakes)

Fake foods have been exposed globally, especially in China, recently.

Suffice to say, it is now absolutely very risky to eat out as you may unknowingly be consuming fake food and thus jeopardise your or your children’s health. (View the above two attached video clips)

Even the simple plain bun/cup cake or bun with stuffing can be served or sold as fakes.

“In this modern world of science and technology, the unscrupulous businessmen or entrepreneurs can now resort to making or manufacturing fake foods to reap insane profits,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
He said the federal government, as a caring and responsible government, must take the lead and act even before such fake foods hit the domestic market, if it had not yet.
“They say prevention is better than cure. Taking precaut…

Invest in property, you can’t go wrong

Invest in property, you can’t go wrong
Have you read The Star Online report titled “World's costliest plot of land sold in Hong Kong for RM13bil”?

It was a multi-storey car park that was sold by the Hong Kong government for RM27,776 per sq ft!

“Ridiculous price isn’t it? But that’s reality,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said in areas and states where land was scarce, “it is only natural that property prices will shoot up like nobody’s business”.

“The same will happen, over time, in Penang, the Klang Valley and Johor. So, stop complaining and whining because that is the reality in a Laissez-faire world of supply and demand,” he added.

Syed Razak said the rakyat (people) should hold on to their “precious properties” for long-term financial gains, at least for their children or generations.

“Don’t start getting greedy and get cheated by all sorts of money games and multi-level financial or business schemes. If you have spare cash, spend it all on a property, and…
