Dunno lah, tapi apapun pasti ia tetap salah Umno juga

Blog saya masih lagi mengalami gangguan sambungan talian.

Saya rasa untuk “ini kali lah” Hannah Yeoh memang bercakap benar. Mengikut katanya, orangramai tidak mengenali calon-calon Cina BN.

Tweet Hannah:

“Aiyoyo from Kinrara to Subang Jaya to Bukit Lanjan, the crowd when asked who the BN candidate is, they shouted ‘dunno‘.”

Twitterhannahyeoh Aiyoyo from Kinrara to Subang 2013-04-29 22-01-44

Pernahkah anda mendengar nama mereka?

I. Calon MCA yang bertanding di Kinrara – sebelum ini kerusi dipegang Teresa Kok – ialah Wong Hock Aun. Lawan DAPnya ialah Ng Sze Han (gambar), seorang Ahli Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya.

NgSzeHanII. Calon MCA yang bertanding di Subang Jaya ialah Gan Meng Foo. Beberapa hari lepas, saya telah memblog bahawa berita yang dimuatkan dalam The Star tentang DUN Subang Jaya ada memaparkan gambar besar Hannah Yeoh tetapi gambar Gan Meng Foo tidak pula dipaparkan.

III. Calon yang mencabar Elizabeth Wong di Bukit Lanjan ialah Chong Tuck Chiew (parti Gerakan).

***  ***  ***

Di bawah ialah carian Google ‘Past Week’ atas nama calon-calon BN tersebut di laman http://www.thestar.com.my.

No results – Ini mesti salah Umno yang menganiaya kaum Cina yang diletakkan pada tahap kelas kedua. Sebab itulah orangramai tidak kenal pada nama ‘Chong Tuck Chiew’.

No results – Ini juga salah Umno yang menzalimi kaum Cina yang tidak diberikan peluang untuk menyerlah sama ada di persada politik mahupun di mana-mana gelanggang yang lain. Sebab itulah orangramai kurang mengenali nama ‘Gan Meng Foo’.

Gan Meng Foositethestar.com.my - Google Search 2013-04-29 23-18-56

Carian Google ‘Past Week’ atas Wong Hock Aun, iaitu seorang Datuk yang berumur 59 tahun, memberikan results (hasil) sebanyak 6 rencana. Carian Google ‘Past Week’ atas Ng Sze Han, iaitu seorang kaunsilor MPSJ, memberikan results (hasil) sebanyak 4 rencana.

Results di atas – yang tidak jauh beza jumlah kedua-duanya – membayangkan The Star tidak memberi kelebihan liputan apatah tumpuan kepada seseorang calon itu meskipun dia seorang Datuk yang sudah lanjut usia (bermaksud banyak pengalaman politik) serta dia orang lama MCA.

Datuk Wong dilayan The Star sama rata sahaja dengan muka baru DAP itu.

Berikut ialah nama-nama calon MCA untuk PRU13.

Sekiranya orang MCA di bawah kebetulan bertanding di tempat duduk anda, bolehkah tolong kongsi sedikit tentang pendedahan serta prestasi yang ditunjukkan mereka?

Andaikata ramai di antara mereka yang kalah nanti, ia pun salah Umno juga.

Ini kerana jentera Umno tidak bergerak di peringkat akar-umbi untuk bantu mempopularkan wakil-wakil komponen Cina BN.

Akhbar Utusan yang dimiliki Umno juga harus turut dipersalahkan kerana tidak memberi apa-apa publisiti kepada mereka-mereka ini.

67 thoughts on “Dunno lah, tapi apapun pasti ia tetap salah Umno juga

  1. A small correction – #18 should read P52, not P51.

    Side story … I wanted to get a better perspective on the candidate so I Binged (or maybe Googled) online for information. His blog is, shall we say, not very diversity friendly. The FB page is a bit more encompassing though there’s mostly shared post, guest post and not enough of his own thoughts.

    So here’s the issue. I want to know the candidates. A flier / fanfold / booklet tells me zilch. It’s how the candidate personalizes the party’s vision that interest me (or a personal mission in the case of independents).

    In addition, I desire to read /hear the person’s past thoughts too (because everyone smells of roses when it comes time to ask for something) and gauge if the one getting my pangkah is authentic. A big bonus is if I can meet them on walkabouts. That is a bit hard because I don’t know what their schedule is.

    So, in the week leading up to this pilihanraya, what i have is the Aku Janji booklet, Buletin Mutiara’s Newspaper, and a bunch of fliers I do not know how to read. I guess I have to make do with the canned presentations, then.

    1. Thanks. Have corrected.

      re: “a bunch of fliers I do not know how to read”

      It’s Umno’s fault you dunno how to read them fliers.

      1. Helen,

        In NS you may know a lot more about MIC candidates this time around than MCA candidates. Why? Since 2008 tsunami (I use this word for MIC) the young generation of MIC in NS start to work hard for their people.

        They also start to get near the NS people by using Facebook and joint a lot of NGO activities especially regarding the Indian people.

        After all, the DAP in NS just given more attention in attracting Chinese to joint them. Now after what DAP has done to a lot of their members here, the MIC start getting stronger day by day.

        MCA? Well…Guess MIC here has the brain to revamp their camp after 2008 and MCA still strugle to even take a breath…

        1. Yes, that’s a good observation. It is not just in NS but in many other places MIC has been very aggressive. It is the same in Penang and I heard of the same in Perak and Selangor as well. They have some young and multi-lingual candidates. In my the Penang mainland, I see a strong working relationship between MIC and UMNO. But I don’t see that with MCA and Gerakan. In fact I hardly noticed them at all. Are they contesting this time around?

          1. Careful there Helen. Like I said before, 99% of all DAPhsters are blind to irony. They already are chockfull of misguided believes and urban myths and you might inadvertently be reinforcing one of them. Scary thought. LOLX! Wait… was it 99.9%…

            1. And you’re the one that got away. The Dapsters must improve their system to put a seal on their success rate.

          2. Yes Calvin.. MIC help us a lot in Gelang Patah. Hindraf also sent their warriors to help us and working with us. Menang atau kalah adalah adat pertandingan tetapi gembira dengan komitmen sahabat India kita.

  2. You sindir ke apa yang ayat salahkan UMNO tu? abih jentera-jentera MCA buat apa? Di pandan, jentera BN dan UMNO hebat je membantu calon MCA Pandan…..

    1. Ia salah Umno kerana enggan meluluskan secara direct (umpamanya macam pencalonan Zul Nordin) seorang “winnable candidate”, yakni Ong Tee Keat, untuk mempertahankan kerusi yang pernah disandangnya selama beberapa penggal di Pandan. OTK mampu menggemblengkan tenaga kerjanya sendiri untuk berkempen lalu tidak perlu terlebih bergantung kepada jentera Umno.

      Nampaknya Garry Lim seorang calon yang kurang berkemampuan menggerakkan jentera pilihanrayanya sendiri.

      1. Saya berpendapat, UMNO tetap membantu, dan akhbar2 UMNO macam utusan dan BH juga membuat liputan tentang calon2 MCA, tapi pengundi cina sendiri yang tak kenal calon MCA kerana jentera MCA tidak proaktif seperti jentera UMNO…maafkan saya kalau saya salah… kesian UMNO… semua beban diletakkan atas bahunya…

        1. Ia tetap salah Umno. Kenapa Umno tak cetak suratkhabar Cina supaya boleh memperkenalkan calon-calon Cina kepada masyarakat Cina?

          1. Owwwhhhh… its look alike MCA duduk baring saja, rilek-rilek, minum teh-o and UMNO kena buat semua kerja dari A sampai Z?

          2. hahaha.. very funny, an umno guy trying to crack jokes in a chinese tabloid. 584 in hokkien cud do it.. hahaha jj (just joking)

  3. Dear Helen,

    The DAP candidates are seen as superstars. And my fb feed has been inundated with all the hate and vitriol spewing out from my circle who hero-worship them. Anyway, i was surprised to learn of one MCA candidate P106 PJ Utara: Chew Hoong Ling. She’s an activist for organ donation and even donated her liver to a total stranger. You’d think that she would be a household name by now compared to her opponent. (Which probably proves your theory about The Star.)

    Anyway, i digress. I only got to know about her after my friend posted a pix of his dog doing its business next to a BN poster of Hoong Ling. The thing is, my friend is a polite, mild mannered and civilised guy. Would never think he’s a sort to ridicule and demean another individual in this manner.

    Guess that’s what happens when we consume all this hate propaganda. Shit in, shit out.

    1. It is Umno’s fault that the Chinese fall prey to DAP propaganda and Dapsters like to ridicule and demean other Malaysians.

      Umno has ruled Malaysia for 56 years but despite its over half a century of uninterrupted rule, the party has still failed to educate the country’s population to become critical thinkers who can discern fact from fallacy.

      Umno must be blamed for not instilling politeness in the people. Perhaps Umno should embark on a nationwide campaign ala S’pore to teach Malaysian citizens to have better manners.

      1. salah UMNO juga kerana semenjak 1998 membenarkan alam siber dikawal oleh pihak pembangkang tanpa ada sensorship sehingga terbit cyberbully dan orang2 yg amat kurang ajar.emmmm…ini salah mahadey kot. salah UMNO jugak sebab tanpa sebab pon UMNO salah.

  4. Helen,

    Yes it UMNO fault on everythings. Like what I write in my post before, “If the grass growing, it’s UMNO fault, if it raining, it’s UMNO fault, if the sun shining, it UMNO fault and ect…ect…ect all UMNO fault”. Everything bad in the face of this earth is UMNO fault. No good things has been done this past 56 years.

    So DAPster style lah Helen. Got it… Hahaha..

  5. Wah ramainya calon mca! Considering that less than 15 will win, memang bodoh & salah Umno for giving so many seats to mca.

    1. That was Parliament, 40 candidates. Won 15 seats.

      MCA won 30 state seats: Perak (1), Selangor (2), Pahang (6), Johor (12), Kedah (1), Melaka (4), Negri Sembilan (1), Penang (0), Perlis (1), Sabah (1), Terengganu (1), Kelantan (0).

      Click HERE to see table of results.

    2. Ha ha.. anda betul Sharifah.. Memang antara kebodohan UMNO adalah menyerahkan banyak kerusi kepada si MCA yang pemalas ini.. Lain kali kita ajar ini UMNO.. Lain kali lah bukan Ini kali..

  6. Hahaha.. your wife don’t want to have s3x with you.. it is UMNO’s fault!

    These Pakatoons when they engaged with Malay audience, they will split the Malays to UMNO Malays and REAL Malays. If you say anything good about BN, you are UMNO Malays.

    Funny that a party that is instrumental to Malaysia independence, now become a dirty word to some people. Again, it is UMNO’s fault!

  7. Helen, I have been told that PAS is going around handing out fliers with Rm100 notes in Johor. In Kedah and Penang, they are holding ceramahs with lucky draws and ample food. I guess Mkini and MI missed these stories, not really fit their agenda of “noble-minded” and “corruption-free” Opposition.

    In Penang (and in Selangor I hear) PAS and PKR are openly calling Muslims refrain from voting the “kafir” candidates from MIC. Thought Pakatan heralds a new politics that transcends race and religion…. Oops.. sorry that only applies when it comes to BN.

  8. last night I watched TV1 for PRU updates.
    there’s segment about ‘hot seats’ which include Lim Guan Eng & Karpal Singh seats. funny thing is, LGE & KS has their photos vs MCA candidates no photos shown on footage to go along with the analysis.

    this is must RTM’s fault for not providing MCA’s candidates photos for viewers and willing to promote DAP’s leaders faces.

    for TV2, Mandarin news, Teo Nie Ching even appeared in last 3-4 days news. like 5 minutes and then Janice Lee also.
    who says RTM is bias and double standard, i dunnolah…

    TV2, 10pm ‘Hot Seat’ programme also promote Anwar Ibrahim, LKS and Hadi faces…but the host is sort of uniteresting.

    TV1, response…no comment, mixed.

    501/502 trek campaign, introducing candidates tapi tak sempat nak tengok sangat. only watched one episode.

    TV3’s Mandat2013, watchable with some good points to ponder. if anyone can find, watch rewind episode on 27th, host is Izuan, guests were Kamal Affandi & Prof. Fadzil Che Din.

    Prof. Fadzil Che Din commented about “parlimen boleh diibaratkan sebagai universiti, sebab tempoh 5 tahun bagi setiap penggal. kalau masuk universiti, belajar dapat ijazah. ahli parlimen diibaratkan sebagai mangkuk yang sepatutnya masuk parlimen sebagai mangkuk kosong dan keluar sebagai mangkuk berisi ada sesuatu untuk diberikan kepada rakyat. tapi ramai ahli parlimen yang masuk sebagai mangkuk kosong dan keluar sebagai mangkuk kosong jugak.”

    please don’t choose the same mangkuk from both coalitions.

    1. If MCA candidates are not visible over RTM, then it is Umno’s fault because “everybody” believes that Umno controls the official media since the Minister of Info portfolio is filled by Umno.

  9. I got stuck in a traffic jam last night.

    Damn UMNO for not building multi-storey hiway on jln tun razak.

    1. Wrong. Transport Ministry held by MCA. It’s MCA fault you’re stuck in traffic jam.

      1. Wrong, MCA is headed by Chua CD who is controlled by UMNO, so it is UMNO’s fault afterall.

  10. The best way to clean up the Star is to sack the whole Board and Wong Chun Wai for all the complaints and for doing business with the Singapore Government.

      1. why all the trouble ? just tell Media Prima to take over The Star. then start the cleanup process. same with The Redberry Group and The Sun. buy them then clean them up. if the opposition makes noises, accusing the government of monopolizing the mainstream media, let them. after all the opposition already owns the alternative media, so what do they need the mainstream media for ? let them have the alternative media.

  11. Helen,

    I got a good laugh right now. Now I know why I have to vote for BN. Not creative lah their answers. If blaming UMNO is their tagline, than in 5 years time those words you can group in one song.

    Blame UMNO….Blame UMNO…yo yo…Blame UMNO…..
    If the sun shine, in Malaysia, Who you want to blame – Blame UMNO…..If the grass grown, in the neighbourhood, who you want to blame – Blame Umno
    (Sing it following ghostbuster song)
    Just imagine LKS futured in this video clip. Wearing multiple chains in his neck) Priceless….

  12. So we should also sack najib and badawi for inviting and getting singaporeans to invest in iskandar region?

  13. We were told in a video conference today that the company was concerned about the current political climate in the country. The uncertainty over the elections is causing our APac HQ to fret over our operations post GE. In fact, they’re so concerned that they have approved the day off for non essential staff on Monday May 5th. So we will have a skeleton team for the day at around 25% of our workforce.

    All management staff were instructed to be contactable over the weekend & to inform their immediate superiors of their plans to travel to vote. We were all instructed to work out a contingency plan to ensure we are still able to operate without putting our employees at risk should civil unrest break out. I find it somewhat disconcerting that an MNC that has been in business in Malaysia for over 2 decades feel worried about the country’s political stability. As we have no dealings with government departments, loss of business is not a factor in this concern.

    If companies with deep roots in the country are spooked enough to consider a temporary relocation to Singapore, surely investors will think twice before committing to invest in the country. At the end of it all, the country & the citizens will be at the losing end due to all this hate mongering which leaves the nation divided.

    That said, do check out the Star today.

    GPS’s opinion was featured in the Star. Yayyyy! Thing is, sidebar only, about the size of a Snickers bar.

    Hannah was also mentioned in the Metro section, where she would normally appear. Somehow, Star saw it fit to issue a denial from Wong Chen over some insinuation by MCA’s candidate but would normally not give a damn about defending lower profile MCA members.

    Also, seems like Kinrara state seat DAP candidate got a half page feature to “introduce” him to the readers. Nice words used to describe him are “working hard”, “very familiar”, “down to earth” etc etc. Wonder if Mr Ng paid for the article to be written.

    Now what I wouldn’t give to see the good senator GPS to be reintroduced to the readers in such a way…

    1. FF Calvin,

      Hmm. Since you double posted, which you normally never do, I’m assuming you’re still having problems due to the connectivity of my blog asyik terputus-putus.

      Since it must take you a few minutes to write your comment, it would be frustrating if you were to post and then the post doesn’t get through and at the same time is lost. Most commenters would be deterred from retyping the whole comment again under such tiresome circumstances.

      May I suggest that you copypaste your comment on Word or something in a separate file as a contingency, at least until the DDOS attacks on my blog cease?

      Regards

      1. Yeah. I copy pasted the thingy since last Saturday. Oh well, you must be doing something right or wrong in the eyes of some to warrant an attack.

        Wonder if Star considers cyber attacks like this newsworthy? Hmmmm…

        1. re: “Oh well, you must be doing something right or wrong in the eyes of some to warrant an attack.”

          ‘They’ are so kiasu. Imagine if an individual blog with a limited reach also they want to curtail its freedom of expression, what ‘they’ will do to kill dissent.

          Actually, I’ve realised how kiasu some oppo people can be since sometime in 2010 during the period of skirmish over Kg Buah Pala and kalimah Allah Round #1.

          re: “Wonder if Star considers cyber attacks like this newsworthy? Hmmmm…”

          Depends on WHO is the victim.

      2. Salah Umno juga tu DDOS attack on your blog and connectivity issues and so on. :D

        I had a bad dream last night. Anwar was giving his victory speech post May 5th.

        They say dream should be interpreted to mean the opposite.

        1. re: “Salah Umno juga tu DDOS attack on your blog and connectivity issues and so on”

          Great minds think alike :D

        2. I had a dream of PR winning the GE a couple of days ago. then I woke up and said to myself “just a dream”. but you know what ? it made me even more determined to vote for BN this Sunday to make sure that BN win. its strange isn’t it ? instead of being intimidated by the possibility of a PR win, I m now more determined than ever to vote for BN.

          PR hacks shout loudly while BN people like me speak in a softer tone, well okay sometimes I do lash out at people but even then, I refrain from using vulgarity to get to the people I m lashing at.

          the silent majority will make their voices heard this Sunday May 5.

          1. Soooo…

            Everything wrong right. Go vote lah. Take your protest by voting. In examination when your are wrong, the teacher will put a cross at your answers. On May 5th just cross at all the dacing logos. OK. That will show them, Agree???

          2. I won’t cast my vote for UMNO this time round!!! And it is all UMNO’s fault that I’m unable to do so. Why do they have to share power with so many parties that they end up fielding Datuk Fadilah Yusof in my constituency?

            Just to spite UMNO, I’m casting my vote for PBB’s Datuk Fadilah. That’ll teach them!

    2. FFC, the scary thing is that the irresponsible pricks from u-know-where are cajoling young and old alike to risk the next 4 years. Damned right that businesses don’t want uncertainty. Transitions are too risky for any rational business person. So if they relocate and retrench for good, I suppose the self-serving hypocrites will then say See! We told you, blame UMNO.

      +1 on the Mullahs and the mullah handouts.

      1. Considering that a Fortune 500 company spent hundreds of millions, possibly more over 22 years, it would be very bad global publicity if they pulled out of the country. And what becomes of the 1200 or so employees who are not in management? Will PR spend their RM2 billion facilitation fund to compensate these employees?

        At this juncture when power is tantalizingly close, you can see the different bedfellows are at loggerheads. Surprisingly, normally the most chaotic of the 3 – PKR is quite serene in their preparations for the GE. As for DAP & PAS, they’re either at each other’s throat or are fighting fires within.

        With it’s supposed reach, the Star media group would wield quite an influence to the middle class if they wish it so. Unfortunately, they seem more intent to please the incoming Chinese community representatives than to assist their majority shareholder regain the trust & support of the community. As the undisputed leaders in alternative media, DAP & by extension PR are have gained a foothold in MSM through free circulation of Selangor Times & Bulletin Mutiara plus the odd articles in Malay Mail, The Sun etc.

        But by having sympathizers in high enough places in the Star, it won’t be long before Media Prima will be the final bastion of BN in MSM. When the day comes, we will have first hand experience how news are reported in North Korea.

        1. Just finished talking to a few small business owners. Quite a few are prepared to risk letting their businesses go under. Have we all gone mad?

          Unbelievable also how small business owners seemed to have bought into the Debt lie wholesale.

          The Chinese media owes it to the Malaysian public to come clean on this one.

          +2 re North Korea

          1. re: “Have we all gone mad?”

            In Penang is the expected thing but for Johor to have succumbed?

    1. Thanks. Methinks Bintang Tiga rather than Kacang Merah more appropriate to describe them tho’.

        1. Calon MCA kalau nak famous macam superstar DAP senang saja. Ikut cara desperate ala Kacang Hantu di bawah :

          1. Tunjuk isyarat lucah kat mana-mana billboard DAP, post di Twitter.

          2. Buka akaun Twitter, upah budak sekolah untuk create 50k akaun hantu follower, letak gambar “telur” tukar-tukar warna saja. Tweet sesama sendiri.

          3. Buka akaun FB, upah budak sekolah untuk create 50k akaun hantu jadi friends. Subscribe autolike comment. Kalau komen tak payah panjang-panjang/banyak-banyak. Tukar-tukar bahasa carut sahaja.

          4. Mainkan sedikit sentimen agama & perkauman.

          5. Create 1 parody video gangnam/poco-poco, upload kat Youtube. upah budak sekolah untuk create 50k akaun hantu Subscribe autolike/autoview.

          6. Masa kempen, pinjam bendera/logo UMNO, pakai baju Melayu/baju kurung masuk kawasan Melayu. Kalau kempen kawasan India pakai sari/dhoti. Ambil gambar post di Twitter/FB. Kalau kawasan ramai Kristian, pakai baju santa claus.

          7. Masuk mana-mana masjid/surau buat kerja-kerja khidmat masyarakat. Bagi hamper kat penduduk, ambil gambar, post di FB/Twitter.

          Untuk perkembangan jentera PRU MCA di kawasan N04 Sekinchan: Kek Seng Hooi setakat ini,
          Kek Seng Hooi dikenali sebagai Sidang Kek (ketua kampung). Agak low profile, seorang Cina kampung yang tipikal. Tinggal di rumah papan kampung. Mesra dan mudah didekati.

          Cuma masih jauh ketinggalan dari segi komunikasi/ucapan berbanding penyandang kerusi N04 Ng Suee Lim yang mahir berbahasa Melayu/Jawa dan sering memetik hadis/ayat al-Quran semasa ceramah.

          Memang agak susah sedikit bagi Sidang Kek untuk menawan hati pengundi di kawasan ini memandangkan beliau juga tiada pengaruh di media sosial disebabkan terlalu kekampungan, tetapi bergantung kepada nasib.

          Baru-baru ini BN terpaksa mengimport anak DS Najib, Norashman yang fasih berbahasa Mandarin untuk membantu berkempen di Sekinchan dalam usaha mempromosi 1 Malaysia. Andaian saya, Ashman sering turun membantu kempen jentera BN adalah sebagai satu latihan orientasi sebagai pelapis legasi DS Najib selepas ini.

          Di luar kawasan saya, P122 Seputeh: Nicole Wong Siaw Ting.

          Saya difahamkan beliau belum habis berpantang. Banyak juga menerima liputan dari akhbar Melayu. Salah satu temubual pendek di sini http://xtive.utusan.com.my/video.php?v=907

          Tapi pengundi Cina tidak membaca akhbar Melayu arus perdana. Pernah satu ketika saya terbaca komen di Facebook, ada yang sanggup untuk tidak membeli nasi lemak yang dibungkus menggunakan surat khabar utusan. Cuma di sini, untuk mengheret lebihan puluhan ribu pengundi Teresa bagi mengundi beliau memang sukar. Dunno lah..

          1. re: “ada yang sanggup untuk tidak membeli nasi lemak yang dibungkus menggunakan surat khabar utusan”

            Hahaha. Takut terpalit dakwat Utusan, kot.

          2. Saya rasa dakwat tu lagi pedas dari sambal nasi lemak. Macam artikel you ni juga, pedas sampai ke telinga, nasib la kalau siapa yang tak tahan tu..lol

            1. re: “dakwat tu lagi pedas dari sambal”

              Hahaha. Takpe lah, anggap saje orde nasi lemak tu extra spicy.
