Even if you pour hot water or cold water or leave it on mug hanger, they will always smile...we should learn from them. I have seen 1 person who was like that ..... even at the last moment of her life, in pain and she was full of smiles and and said "I am good".

Something that we have to learn from her life and her GURU Bakthi.

Man turns to Parliament for justice over son's death in prisonGiam Say Khoon

KUALA LUMPUR (May 27, 2008): The father of an imate who died in the Sungai Buloh prison turned up in Parliament today seeking justice for his son.
Gaur Chandran, 51, who lost Uthaya Chandran, 23, two weeks ago, was received by N. Gobalakrishnan (PKR-Padang Serai) and S. Manikavasagam (PKR-Kapar).
Gobalakrishnan said Uthaya Chandran, who was beaten to death was a suspect awaiting trial.
He said the father wanted justice for his son and hoped that the incident will not befall others.
Gaur also handed a memorandum to the two MPs.
In the memorandum, he asked that the prison wardens involved in the incident be investigated.
He also questioned why his son was not allowed to transfer to anoother cell and the closed-circuit TVs were not functioning.
Manikavasagam said he had tabled an urgent motion yesterday and hoped the motion can be debated tomorrow.
"A total of 80 cases of inmates dying in police lock-ups and prisons have been recorded nationwide but most of cases are not investigated," he added.

Subject is in English?

I came across this science PMR exam paper, I was surprised to see the question were in dual language. English and Malay. But, all these while the Ministry said Maths and Science are subjects that will be taught is English. And I believed in it until I saw the exam papers. The questions are in dual language. So what is the point teaching in English?
Is the ministry trying to cover its weakness for not being able to produce ENGLISH capable teachers?
SAINS is English or is it SCIENCE?

Adoption Act under review

Adoption Act under review
By : Shuhada Elis

KUALA LUMPUR: The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry will look into the Adoption Act to make the child adoption process easier.

Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said her ministry was analysing the act from various aspects with a view to impose as simple an adoption procedure as possible.

Currently, couples need to wait two years to adopt a child. "We want to improve the act to help couples who want children but, at the same time, we don't want people to take advantage of it," she said at the ministry's complex yesterday.

Dr Ng said a family which adopts a child from a foster home is given RM250 a month.

"The money is to care for the child and we don't want them to misuse the money.

"There are six foster homes nationwide that care for abandoned babies and orphans.

On the baby-for-sale syndicate in Johor Baru, Dr Ng said she was deeply saddened by the situation and also surprised.

"I can't accept this. Babies are not like ripe durians which can be sold when they've fallen from the trees.

"She was confident that the police and Health Ministry would do a thorough investigation and revoke the licences of the doctor, the staff and the clinic.

On the issue of the "sexy" uniforms schoolgirls wear, which has been raised by Munirah Bahari, the vice-president of the National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia, Dr Ng said, "Discipline teachers will warn the girls if their uniforms are 'sexy' but don't stereotype women through their attire."

"Even if a woman strips herself naked, it doesn't mean she should be raped.

"Last week, Munirah said the school uniform's white blouse was too transparent and encouraged rape, sexual harassment and premarital sex.

Dr Ng was speaking after lauching Kembara Pertama 2008, a treasure hunt aimed at strengthening relations between media practitioners and the public.Organised by the Women's Journalists' Association of Malaysia, the two-day event kicks off on June 21.

Maxis Communications, UEM Group Berhad and Tourism Malaysia are among the sponsors of the event.

seals: as I said earlier, as long as the demand is there this will go on. To stop this, you have to allow foreign adoption. What will you do if there are little supply (in nature), either more parents are not fertile, that naturally creates demand and also reduction in babies available for adoption and more parents wants to adopt babies. Even i have seen parents who have child of their own wants to have a adopted kid as a service to mankind.

"Currently, couples need to wait two years to adopt a child. ", this is the worst thing to do... This will make parents look for other options. i will blame the government to be the cause of this sales.

They did not hear or want to listen to the childless parents. made them to look for other options and that demand created a "supply chain" in actual i will say the "supply chain" at least help the mothers who don't want the child to be given away to a parent who need a child and the child get the love and care it needs from the new parents.

Not being dumped in the bin and plastic bag. I think selling is better then killing between both the options.

Allow foreign adoption, like in some other countries. And don't try to do make a law to get the adoption via an agent who charges a fat sum like how you do it for MAIDS! And control where we can get the adoption from (countries). These will only create back door demands.

I did asked some foster homes about adopting the babies there (when i was actively involved in charity projects for foster homes) , they said once the babies are there, they will be there till adult. I guess headcount = revenue, so they don't want to loose revenue.

"I can't accept this. Babies are not like ripe durians which can be sold when they've fallen from the trees." , what have we done for the babies who ripe, fall and die in toilet and plastic bag? Better promote and take control of the situation.

And promote to promote child birth for infertile parents (mother or the father). This will reduce the demands.

The law and government will just bark at the wall if they keep poking on the supply chain only without addressing the demands and needs.

Malaysia busts baby-selling racket: reports

According to local media reports Malaysian police have broken a baby-selling racket in southern Johor state, seizing four infants and detaining 23 people including a doctor and a government registrar.

The New Straits Times said the syndicate bought babies from poor women who were talked out of having abortions, and then sold them to childless couples.
It said police were investigating how many children were sold, and whether any went to Singaporean couples.

In raids conducted on Thursday on houses in Johor, which lies next to Singapore, authorities found four babies aged between seven months and one year, and detained four couples who had bought children, it said.

Childless couples paid up to 20,000 ringgit ($6,455) for the babies, depending on their race, while the birth mothers were paid as little as 700 ringgit but given free healthcare and accommodation during their pregnancy, it said.

The report said that among those detained were a doctor and the staff of his clinic, as well as a National Registration Department official who allegedly provided forged identity documents for the children.


seals: when demand is there and the Malaysian Gov does not allow open / foreign adoption you can never stop this ......

Nepalese Sherpa guide scales Mount Everest for record 18th time

KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) - Mountaineering officials say a veteran Sherpa guide has scaled Mount Everest for a record 18th time.

Indelible ink: Police report lodged against PM, EC chairman

KUALA LUMPUR: A police report was lodged against Election Commission chairman Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for the last-minute cancellation of the use of indelible ink in the 12th general elections on March 8.

The report was lodged by the Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (Bersih) and National Institute for Electoral Integrity (NIEI) after Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar told Parliament that the decision to cancel the use of the indelible ink was based on ‘hearsay’ received by the police.

A spokesman, Faisal Mustaffa said Abdul Rashid had announced days before the 12th general election, at a press conference, that the usage of indelible was scrapped after some irresponsible people had smuggled in the ink.

Also present at the press conference were Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail.

The report, which was lodged at the Dang Wangi police headquarters, also urged an investigation be to carried out against Musa and Abdul Ghani.

The commission had spent RM2.4mil to buy 48,000 bottles of the ink from India to be used in the general election.

seals: Then where was the 4 who was said was arrested with illegal possession of smuggled indelible ink ?

The girl that silenced the world for 6 minutes

seals: If we can spend so much for the space tourist and consider to buy the space craft that he travel with and buying a RM106.00 pen for RM1146.56 etc.... Why not we spend the money for the people in need and help the poor without looking at color and religion?

School uniform sexy, says group

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian group condemned the uniform worn by girls at government schools, saying it encouraged rape and pre-marital sex.

“The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction,” National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia vice-president Munirah Bahari said in a statement.

“It becomes a distraction to men, who are drawn to it, whether or not they like looking at it,” she said, calling for a review of uniform policy so that it did not violate Islamic ideals.

In multicultural Malaysia, home to majority-Muslim Malays as well as ethnic Chinese and Indians, female students at government schools have a choice of wearing a white blouse with a knee-length skirt or pinafore.

They may also wear a “baju kurung” and a headscarf is optional for Malay students.
Munirah said that “covering up” according to Islamic precepts was important to fend off social ills, including “rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex.”

“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.
“Decent clothes which are not revealing can prevent and protect women from any untoward situations,” she said, suggesting that girls wear a blouse of a different colour or with an undergarment.

However, the girls themselves also came in for criticism, with the association saying that some used the white blouse to lure men.

“This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them,” Munirah said.

“This could see them getting molested, having premarital sex and all sorts of things.” – AFP

seals: Should we ban white cloth all together? We make a law under police act to arrest all who wears, sell or distribute white cloth. That will solve rape and molest not only for school girls but also for the people for Malaysia.

When you close up the mind of the children and you treat sex as forbidden, it creates curiosity and that kills the cat. Give proper sex education that will help all.

It distracts men? How did it distracts man to rape a girl with scarf? Is wearing tudung (head scarf) also distracts men? If the weakness is at man, why punish girls? There were many cases where girls with head scarf and covered was raped? Even old ladies were raped, hmmm I wander what white cloth could have turn the men up with these old ladies.

Premature sex is because of lack of sex education and un managed desires and more...and "“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.". How can replacing white cloth helps?
