TDM, AI and PBP

With reference to my e-mail in my alumni e-group 19-May, the market did react (KLCI dropped from 1,295 points 18-May to 1,281 yesterday) to TDM's decision to quit UMNO although that is not the sole reason share prices on Bursa Malaysia continued its downtrend since 16-May; the other reasons being the overnight Wall Street fall, as well as regional markets' slump due to investors taking profits on concerns over inflation resultant from the new record high crude oil price of USD134 pb as at today.

In all, political defections stand out a main concern for the stock market. Just as I predicted. Now that our political dimension has shifted totally beyond the figment of our imagination, our politicians must respond swiftly and positively, be it with regard to TDM or AI or anything for that matter. Failing which, some of us will have to bail out our own stock portfolio in no time.

In another development, equally if not more important is the decision regarding the 30-year old territorial dispute on Pulau Batu Putih between Malaysia and Singapore that will be announced tomorrow, 4pm Malaysian time. We can watch it live on RTM1.

Just for the record, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decision could see Singapore win all their claim ie PBP together with Middle Rocks and South Ledge, get one of the islands or leave the table empty-handed. Coin flipped, the status quo may remain with Malaysia resuming her authority over PBP and Singapore being allowed to operate their lighthouse there.

As Malaysians, let's pray we'll win our claim because that's what we deserve.

And the decision favoring Malaysia may yet be the Government's trump card in restoring confidence among the stakeholders, especially the rakyat, hence the much-awaited recovery of our stock market and also the economy as a whole.

Laughter the Best Medicine

Male or Female?

You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female.

Here are some examples:

FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off; ittakes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.

TIRES: Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated.

HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.

SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.

WEB PAGES: Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.

EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.

HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.

THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying.

The wind of change - for the good or bad?

The current development in our counrty's political landscape is
certainly not a good sign to our economic growth. Does TDM care about
it? Or does his action stem from his strong belief that unless he
does something dramatic such as relinquishing his party membership,
the party will not succeed in restoring people's confidence and will
fall to its knees in the next PRU, if not earlier.

There's always something behind a wise man's move; it's for the
remaining members to decipher the doctor's words. Has this got
something to do with Anwar Ibrahim's statement elsewhere that he's
ready to form a new federal government?

In Buletin TV3 19 May 2008, Tuan Guru Nik Aziz said if an internationally
acclaimed leader like the very wise TDM offers to join PAS, the party
will be riding on their luck. But where's TDM going after this? The
party which correctly anticipates TDM's next move will likely have the
extra edge to manouvre.

Whatever the outcome, the current scenario doesn't look good to our
economic growth. While other emerging markets like China, India,
Brazil, Viet Nam, and, ineterestingly, Thailand as well as Indonesia
are attracting more and more investors, Malaysia's image diminishing
in the investors' radar should remain our major concern. PRU12 result
itself drove most foreign investors' share sell-out on an
unprecedented scale to sink prices, mostly of government-linked
companies, further down where it's so difficult to recover. Any
subsequent unfavorable development in our politics certainly won't
help restore investors' confidence. Nor will both moves by TDM and
AI.

Fate has its say


Some people know the gain or pain at the psychological moment. The last people, to the knowledge and eye-witness of millions of watching spectators around the globe at least, who had their own psychological moment were the players in the famous red shirt of Man U and blue shirt of Chelsea battling for ultimate supremacy in the most loved most watched sport of all time to become the best club in world football.

I have to admit that my remark in my earlier post that Chelsea played like a Beast must be retracted. Even at Van der Saar's blocking pair of hands which effectively crowned Man U as champions of Europe for their third time, I really have to admire the beautiful side of Chelsea's brand of football with their slick passings and defence-splitting through-balls.

Both teams were by and large equally good and could deserve to win the final. Had Tevez not missed two clear-cut golden opportunities, no Man U supporters would have had their adrenalin pumped to the limit before Man U lifted the trophy, and had any one of three shots on goal by Chelsea (Drogba and Lampard) hit the net and not the posts, Chelsea could have denied Sir Alex's troop their claim as the best of all.

Whilst both sides of players' tiring legs and straining muscles could not capitalise on the 30 minutes extra time to score the defining goal, Drogba lost his temper, 'gently' slapped Vidic and was red-carded.

Uhh.. I hate penalty shoot-out but that's Man U's fate to become champions again. Ronaldo missed his spotkick, then I screamed "You better don't dream to be the world's best player". And he should be thankful to Terry the Chelsea captain for slipping at the spot to send the ball out of goal trajectory. Anelka's failure to repeat his scoring feat against Man U when he was a Gunner - this time at the penalty spot - meant Man U beat Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final by 6-5 in the penalty shoot-out after the tie was even at 1-1 until the extra time.

Congrat to Man U and all their fans around the world.

Also congrat to Chelsea for they deserve to be in the final and do have the quality to become champions.

p/s: heard 'em say, were Drogba to stay and take one penalty kick, surely it'll be a complete turn of events.

UCL final again

The players are at half-time. Man U squandered 2 golden chances which should be taken in any other occasions, but of all moments, they chose the UCL final. And 2 minutes before half-time, one lapseof concentration caused Man U their early lead, and possibly the trophy.

The second half is about to start. Enjoy the game.

our ageing earth


She was trapped between 2 huge stone debris for 10 days. Only raindrops prolonged her life. The day she was rescued, the medic team diagnosed her with merely a crack in her thigh and a scratch on her face. This 60-year old woman cried in tears of joy mixed with endured pain. Imagine you lie down squeezed by 2 huge stones, unable to move left or right. Perhaps you can only move your fingers and mouth. And stay put for 10 days. Dare to?

I don't know how my body will react if i were in her situation; even half a day is a torture, let alone 10 bloody days.

This is but one morbid scenario in the aftermath of the deadly earthquake of 7.9 ritcher scale - only 1.0 less than that of Acheh - which totally wiped out the worst-hit Sichuan and killed to date 40,025 people and counting.

The quake is expected to trim China's soaring economic growth this year by at least 0.2 percentage points, lead to a one-month production stoppage and curb consumption in worst-hit Sichuan and neighbouring areas. The economic loss? About 67 billion yuan (RM31 billion).

How will this affect Malaysia?

After the US economy has been hit hard by its subprime mortgage crisis, and will likely fall into a recession, albeit mild, Malaysia has a cause for concern. The reason being, the US is Malaysia's main export market. So, when hopes are high for the US economic downturn to be offset by China's super robust growth, the China quake seems to steal the headline for the wrong reason.

And with the world oil price reaching a record USD130 per barrel, Malaysia should be more cautious and careful in its spending before it's too late.

UCL Final - Beauty and the Beast

the clock is ticking.. tik tok tik tok tik tok

At about 2.45am Malaysian time on Thursday morning, Man U will lock horns with Chelsea in what has been labelled as the Battle of Beauty and the Beast. Well, you know who's who.

For those Chelsea supporters, my advice is just take it as a learning experience playing in the UCL final. To win it, Man U is too good for your team, kay?

All the best Man U.
