Malaysia tops in SEA for online child porno! Is Malaysian society sick?
It is shocking to read The Star Online news report titled “Malaysia tops in South-East Asia for online child pornography”.

Is the Malaysian society generally a sicko?

“And what is our Multimedia Communications And Multimedia Commission (MCMC) doing about this disgraceful position?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the MCMC seems to be able to ban or block access to whatever sites they want but “why is it not doing enough about pornography?”

Syed Razak said it was certainly no honour for Malaysia to be dubbed the No.1 online child pornography in South-East Asia (SEA).

He urged the federal government, namely the MCMC, education and health ministries and police, to treat seriously the “sick problems of Malaysians’ fixation on child pornography” and take remedial and preventive measures.

Selangor rakyat reason behind state’s economic success

Selangor rakyat reason behind state’s economic success Blog content found in Pek Moh's e-mail box
Selangor is known as Malaysia’s most developed state, this is a fact. Many individuals have laid claim to being the reason behind Selangor’s success as the economic powerhouse of the country.

The latest of them is current Mentri Besar Azmin Ali, who never fails to mention it whenever he has the opportunity. But I don’t think he’s correct.

To me, Selangor is successful because of us, Selangor citizens.

The businessmen, professionals, hawkers, traders, fishermen, farmers, service sector employees – all in all, an estimated 6.39 million of us as of 2017, and the millions of illegal workers as well.

Without all of us, Azmin would have nothing to be proud about.

Selangor, like any other state or country, is what it is today because of the people who live and work here. Governments are only catalysts, they can do their best to either make things BETTER or WORSE for the citizens, but they can NEVER…

Don’t wait until an economic crisis hits, control Malaysia’s fast growing federal debt

An economist has warned that Malaysia’s national debt level is fast reaching the maximum level for a developing country.

The warning was from Sunway University’s Business School professor Yeah Kim Leng.
“Whether Yeah’s assessment and analysis is accurate or not, it cannot be taken lightly,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said how bad the impact would be on Malaysians should the national debt level surpass 80% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) had yet to be seen or experienced.

“It is better for the federal government to ensure that the country’s economy and financial management did not lose control of federal debt,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said whatever the case may be, both domestic and global economies were facing extr…

From chewing bubble gum to e-cigarettes …
In 2004, the Singapore government banned chewing bubble gum to stop the dirtying of public places in the country.

Initially people laughed it out as silly but the ban has helped Singapore to remain clean.

Fourteen years after, the Singapore government has come up with another controversial ban - e-cigarettes! The ban is effective Feb 1, 2018.
“However, the ban this time is for valid reasons. Public and personal heath,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff.
He said the e-cigarette ban was also aimed at discouraging the smoking habit.
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said the federal government should also consider imposing a similar ban.
“Millions of ringgit have been spent by the Health Ministry in anti-smoking campaigns but with little success in reducing the number of smokers and drug abuse.
“E-cigarettes or fake smokeless cigarettes do nothing to public or pers…

Upgrading of Sexual Harassment Act to protect Malaysians long overdue

Upgrading of Sexual Harassment Act to protect Malaysians long overdue
There is no reason why Malaysians would object to the call to have a standalone Sexual Harassment Act (SHA).

However, the SHA should cover both genders - female and male!

“Why not also cover males? Males can also be at the receiving end of sexual harassment, no?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the call and proposal for a standalone SHA should protect and serve justice to both women and men.

“Not only women, but men must also be allowed to complain of sexual harassment. The law must not be bias to any gender,” he added.

Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said all lawmakers and the federal government “are urged to give immediate and serious attention to the proposed standalone SHA”.

“All must stop dragging their feet on the SHA. This is the 21st Century. There is certainly a need to ‘update’ the SHA to serve justice in …

RM44 billion in GST collected last year! Who says Malaysians are poor and not spending?

RM44 billion in GST collected last year! Who says Malaysians are poor and not spending?
Malaysians contributed a whopping RM44 billion in Goods and Services Tax (GST) to the federal government last year!

No wonder ministers have said if not for the GST, Malaysia’s administration would have gone bust!

“It is good that Malaysians have contributed that much to Malaysia’s development,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

However, Syed Razak said, the GST contribution had also confirmed the stress of Malaysians and why they are generally struggling to put food on the table daily for their loved ones.

“Many employers have also been struggling to make ends meet since the implementation of the GST,” he added.

Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said Malaysians and Malaysia would also benefit much generally from a growing economy “if the GST collections are used wisely for the socio-economic development of t…

黄洁冰是否希望雪州消费者忘记20仙塑料袋政策惨败?(Is Elizabeth Wong hoping for Selangor consumers to forget about 20-sen plastic bag policy fiasco?)

黄洁冰是否希望雪州消费者忘记20仙塑料袋政策惨败?(Is Elizabeth Wong hoping for Selangor consumers to forget about 20-sen plastic bag policy fiasco?)
黄洁冰你好!你轻易地对20仙塑料袋政策的惨败保持“沉默是金”的立场,并希望雪州消费者能够忘记这件事吗? 

对不起,让你失望了,但惨败仍然悬而未决,没有得到解决,也没有被遗忘。 

民政党副议长赛阿都拉萨说:“事实上,20仙塑料袋政策是一个完完全全和可耻的失败。”

“在你的政治支持者开始抨击我之前,让我表明我不是为了政治利益或里程而提出这个问题。

“你不仅是武吉兰樟州议员,你还是雪州行政议员掌管环保,你的20仙塑料袋政策对于环境达到了预期的效果吗?

“首先,如果你对你的政策是真诚的,那么就禁止使用塑料袋,或者对塑料袋收取1令吉的费用。这很可能会迫使消费者停止使用塑料袋。

“事实上,许多消费者仍然愿意为塑料袋支付20仙。谁获益?塑料袋的价格只不过2仙,商家很开心地多赚取18仙,之前消费者是免费得到这些塑料袋的。”他补充说。

赛阿都拉萨说:“所以,黄小姐,你不仅帮助商家从塑料袋的销售中获利,还给消费者带来了经济上的负担。

“让我们也不要忘记你相互矛盾的说法,即出售塑料袋的利润将被州政府展开环保运动,我们现在知道这是不正确的。

“如果你的政策经过深思熟虑,你就可以确保将塑料袋的销售利润用于补贴高质量的环保袋,并以低廉的价格出售,或免费赠送给最低消费者。

“现在,这不就是一个更环保的政策吗?不是吗?”他问。


赛阿都拉萨是民政党第14届大选武吉兰樟州议席(N.37)协调人表示,黄洁冰应该用自己的职权和州政府来纠正这个政策,而不是试图把这件事情掩盖起来。

“这有什么困难吗?你想保全面子?错误就是一个错误。我们都会犯错。

“承认错误并纠正它。这应该是一个负责任和有责任感的人民代议仕所应有的。保持沉默并希望问题消失,对你和消费者来说都不是解决办法,“他补充说。

Parents must start ‘thinking out of the box’ for their children to acquire the right working skills

Parents must start ‘thinking out of the box’ for their children to acquire the right working skills
It is heartening to read news that Mamee is ready to use RM2 million worth of robotics technology for its manufacturing line.

Mamee, a Malaysian food manufacturer, had gone through a trial period using the technology and will be robotics fully operational next month, starting with the production of instant noodles right up to the packaging stage.

“This shows Malaysian manufacturers had started to embrace new technology. It is likely many other Malaysian manufacturers had also similarly embraced new technology to remain competitive domestically and globally,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said although new technologies could be disruptive in many ways, “it is the reality that we all have to face”.

“Yes. Robotics will reduce jobs and workforce. But factory workers can also adapt and upgrade themselves with new skills related to robotics to remain employable,” he add…

‘Karma’ (sarcasm intended) hits Bukit Lanjan?

‘Karma’ (sarcasm intended) hits Bukit Lanjan?
https://youtu.be/ZCqcL60FEAw(VIDEO: Bukit Lanjan transformed into a river of mud)Even developed countries, like Singapore recently, are hit by floods when nature unleashes exceptionally heavy rain.

So, it was just plain stupid for those who blame floods in their states on karma.

“However, floods can be mitigated if monsoon drains are adequate,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said floods could also be mitigated if development projects under construction “are conducted with strict guidelines and measures to ensure monsoon drains are not clogged”.

From pictures shared on WhatsApp, Syed Razak said Bukit Lanjan was flooded badly yesterday (Jan 24, 2018) probably due to the many construction works in the constituency.

“The muddy waters is testimony to the pollution caused by development projects,” he added.
