Al freír de los huevos lo verá. This is Spanish and taken from the famous novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.
It means literally, “You will see it when you go to fry the eggs”.
Si Pudin and his wobbly alif ba ta party
A translation of the Spanish saying above was credited as the origin for the English proverb “the proof of the pudding is in the eating”. In modern English, it means you can only test the pudding when you eat it.
Kalu ikut Lebai Google, maksudnya “the real value of something can be judged only from practical experience or results and not from appearance or theory”.
Si Pudin has already been amply tested. The judgment from practical experience and results is that Pudin offers no value add. The proof is as clear as transparent jelly that he is an unwanted dish.
Umno delegates did not want to elect him as a party supreme council member. Umno members in Temerloh too refused to have him as their deputy division chief.
(Note: Even Jamal Sekinchan can win the divisional contest to become Umno Sungai Besar chairman but Si Pudin can’t make the cut as deputy division leader. Ish!)
‘Sokongan’ yang membawa rebah
Awang Selamat in the Utusan editorial yesterday has as much as said that Saifuddin Abdullah should be sacked from Umno.
“Sampai bila pengurusan Umno masih teragak-agak untuk bertindak ke atas bekas Ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno, Saifuddin Abdullah. […]
“Cukuplah, sudah banyak peringatan diberi. Kegagalan untuk bertindak akan memberi mesej yang salah kepada semua. Tanpa Saifuddin dalam Umno, tiada siapa akan menangis sebaliknya, ia kelegaan besar buat semua.”
What Awang Selamat recommended vis-a-vis The Pudding similarly applies to the MCA. To paraphrase from the Utusan editorial:
- Sampai bila pengurusan BN masih teragak-agak untuk bertindak ke atas MCA?
- Sudah banyak tindak-tanduk dan kenyataan MCA yang bukan sahaja tidak selari dengan aspirasi BN malah bercanggah, contohnya sokongan yang terang-terang diluahkan mantan presiden Ling Liong Sik bagi Bersih 4.0.
Kenyataan terbaharu Tun Dr Ling menuntut agar Najib Razak berundur adalah satu lagi ujian buat BN. Meskipun demikian, MCA cuma lepas tangan seolah-olah dalam diam parti Cina tersebut memang merestui syor yang dibuat bekas pemimpinnya itu.
- MCA tidak lagi berminat kepada BN dan BN lebih-lebih lagi, sudah tidak mengharapkan undi Cina.
- Lagipun pengaruh MCA di persada politik sudah hilang selepas kalah teruk tatkala PRU13 dulu. Maka apa ditunggu lagi, sudah tiada keserasian antara kedua-duanya.
- Baik MCA meninggalkan BN secara terhormat daripada terus menjadi duri dalam daging kepada parti pemerintah.
- Kegagalan Najib untuk bertindak akan membawa padah kepada BN dalam PRU14 nanti.
Pointless to try and please the Chinese
The above photograph of the Prime Minister speaking at the United Nations a few days ago is lifted from the UN News Centre website.
You can see that Najib is still faithfully wearing the 1Malaysia pin on his lapel.
Five years ago Najib stood before the UN and pledged to create a Global Movement of Moderates. True to his world, he appointed The Pudding as GMM boss soon upon his return from New York.
Lim Kit Siang asks whether Najib has lost confidence in Saifuddin to head his pet project and whether Pudin was going to be replaced as CEO.
According to Kit Siang, moderation is in any case an oxymoron in pro-Umno/BN circles because moderates are “a rare and may-soon-become-extinct species” in Umno.
With the DAP people, buat tak betul, tak buat pun tak betul.
Let it go, let it go
Di sisi orang yang tak berkenan, buat segala apa pun kira salah jua. Najib initiated GMM. He established the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC). He launched his signature policy 1Malaysia.
None of it cut any ice. On the contrary, the Dapster-evangelistas diss everything without giving any idea mooted by BN – however well-thought out or good-intentioned – a sliver of chance to take off.
Kit Siang today alleged that 1Malaysia has gone the way to oblivion despite that Najib is still pinning 1Malaysia on his coat.
A lot of people in Umno are left wondering why their president remains fixated on 1Malaysia. Why can’t he just let go?
Give DAP a taste of its own medicine
In his UN speech on Oct 1, Najib quoted the dictum, “That which is hateful to you, don’t do to your fellow human being”.
Another way of putting across the Golden Rule is – Do unto others what you would have others do unto you.
Essentially what DAP keeps doing to Umno is hurl malicious accusations of “racist”, “extremist”, “bigot” and “spewers of hate”. In fact, Kit Siang just did it again today.
Umno must return the favour, and without further reservation, firmly remind Malaysians that DAP is the real racist that sparked May 13. Moderation is wasted on the evangelista Bintang Lima.
The Umno president should by now realise that one can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.
Other countries, such as China and Singapore, where the government is led by Chinese would not be so tolerant of the vicious and slanderous behaviour of DAP people. You’ve just got to crack a few eggs to make an omelette.
Time for Najib to get crackin’.
