KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today warned ethnic groups not to make excessive demands from the government as it could strain national unity.

The deputy prime minister said the public must look at the “bigger picture” and accept that Malaysia is a multiracial country.............


Long story cut short, ever wondering why do the ethnic groups has to make demand?

Demanding for basic right after been short-charged or they are demanding to "over-right" on other race right? I surely believe it is the former and not the latter. In this case, the demand is all about inequality and unequal treatment on citizen of Malaysia.

Let think with our brain, not our heart.

Pos Malaysia

The Star reported that ....the price for stamps for standard mail weighing up to 20g will be revised from 30 sen to 60 sen, and for mail weighing up to 50g, from 40 sen to 70 sen.

Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Syed Faisal Albar Datuk Syed Faisal Albar said the continuous decline in public mail volume over the past years prompted Pos Malaysia to take various measures to contain costs while maintaining productivity.

It took 18 years for Pos Malaysia wake-up and to realized the issues. Tidur lah..... terus tidur lah!
This probably not an issue all this while as the CEO and all his management team is getting a fat pay check. For poor performance and inactivity, they just shifted the cost to us. What a easy way out.

The Merlimau Chinese Methodist Church

Idiot Boss (Small Napoleon)


A young businessman had just started his own firm. He rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques. Sitting there, he saw a man come into the outer office. Wishing to appear the hot shot, the businessman picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal working.

He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments. Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, "Can I help you?"

The man said, "Yeah, I've come to activate your phone lines."

Idiot Boss (Small Napoleon)



Never walk down the hall without a document in your hands. People with documents in their hands look like hardworking employees heading for important meetings. People with nothing in their hands look like they're heading for the cafeteria.

People with the newspaper in their hands look like they're heading for the bathroom. Above all, make sure you carry loads of stuff home with you at night, thus generating the false impression that you work longer hours than you do.

* * *

Use computers to look busy. Any time you use a computer, it looks like work to the casual observer. You can send and receive personal e-mail, calculate your finances and generally have a blast without doing anything remotely related to work.

These aren't exactly the societal benefits that everybody from the computer revolution expected but they're not bad either. When you get caught by your boss--and you will get caught--your best defense is to claim you're teaching yourself to use the new software, thus saving valuable training dollars.

You're not a loafer, you're a self-starter. Offer to show your boss what you learned. That will make your boss scurry away like a frightened salamander.

Messy desk. Top management can get away with a clean desk. For the rest of us, it looks like you're not working hard enough. Build huge piles of documents around your workspace.

To the observer, last year's work looks the same as today's work; it's volume that counts. Pile them high and wide. If you know somebody is coming to your cubicle, bury the document you'll need halfway down in an existing stack and rummage for it when he/she arrives.

Voice mail. Never answer your phone if you have voice mail. People don't call you just because they want to give you something for nothing-- they call because they want YOU to do work for THEM. That's the way to live. Screen all your calls through voice mail.

If somebody leaves a voice mail message for you and it sounds like impending work, respond during lunch hour. That way, you're hardworking and conscientious even though you're being a devious weasel. If you diligently employ the method of screening incoming calls and then returning calls when nobody is there, this will greatly increase the odds that they will give up or look for a solution that doesn't involve you.

The sweetest voice mail message you can ever hear is "Ignore my last message. I took care of it." If your voice mailbox has a limit on the number of messages it can hold, make sure you reach that limit frequently. One way to do that is to never erase any incoming messages. If that takes too long, send yourself a few messages.

Your callers will hear a recorded message that says, "Sorry, this mailbox is full"--a sure sign that you are a hardworking employee in high demand.
