DURI DALAM DAGING

Salam, kepada para bloggers dan pembaca blog Bacalah.

Semalam (28 Mac 2009), telah mencatitkan lagi satu sejarah di dalam parti politik tertua di Malaysia iaitu UMNO.

Antaranya, Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi akhirnya telah meletakkan jawatan sebagai Presiden parti tanpa perlu dipaksa melakukannya (Jose, from an introspect he was forced to stepped down from that post, mind you!) dan Datuk Seri Najib telah mengambil alih jawatan tersebut, walaupun telah memenanginya tanpa bertanding.

Selain daripada itu, majilis perhimpunan Agung UMNO semalam juga telah menyaksikan kepulangan bekas Presiden, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ke parti. Bolehlah dikatakan nasib Tun amat baik, jika dibandingkan dengan 3 lagi bekas Presiden parti yang lalu, Allahyarham Dato’ Onn Jaafar, Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman dan Almarhum Tun Hussien Onn kerana mereka telah meninggal dunia bukan sebagai seorang ahli UMNO.

Allahyarham Dato’ Onn misalannya, meninggal dunia bukan sebagai ahli UMNO apabila beliau…

THE PIGS OF CORRUPTION PART 2

Salam, to my fellow bloggers and readers of this blog.

To all of the UMNO hopefuls who will be contesting for the coming UMNO party election, I wish you all the best!

Also, not to forget the shrewd politicians who have plans to buy votes from some of the UMNO delegates or, has been doing it for a number of times during the previous UMNO party election, I wish you good luck. However, please be extra caution as disguised officers from the Anti Corruption Commission will be all over place at PWTC during the 4 day conference.

UMNO, according to former UMNO President Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, is beyond repair. I personally disagreed with such argument because the party has yet to lose the total support of the Malays, especially in the rural areas.

As an institution and not as a political party, UMNO can become stronger than before provided, its members must stop making bickering attempts to spoil the party for the sake of their own personal agenda.

The recent gathering o…

RASUAH..

Oleh -Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Salam kepada para bloggers dan pembaca blog bacalah..

Rasanya, baru semalam (16 March 2009) penulis ada menghantar satu "artikel" (konon!) ke blog ini, mengenai betapa keji dan terkutuknya perbuatan rasuah.

Hari ini (17 March 2009), terpampang di dada akhbar tentang beberapa orang tertentu yang telah dikenakan tindakan (atau mungkin akan diambil tindakan) berikutan pembabitan mereka di dalam politik wang. Mereka ini, yang merupakan calon-calon untuk jawatan tertentu dan terpenting di dalam parti politik tertua di Malaysia ini akan mungkin terlepas peluang untuk bertanding di dalam jawatan yang telah tawarkan kelak, sekiranya didapati bersalah.

Penulis risau sekiranya mereka ini terlepas dan berjaya memenangi jawatan tersebut. Ini kerana orang-orang yang telah terpalit dengan tuduhan rasuah ini, maruah mereka akan sedikit tergugat dan tercalar. Bak kata pepatah Melayu, masakan pokok boleh bergoyang jikanya dianya tidak ada angin! Selain daripada itu, pe…

THE PIGS OF CORRUPTION

Salam, to my fellow bloggers and Bacalah readers.If any of my blog readers (How I wish there were!) had read the latest posting by Datuk Kadir Jasin in his blog The Scribe, you might have noticed the latest title in one of his writings that touches the issue on bribery. "Khinzirkan" Rasuah Untuk Perkuat Melayu”, which is very bold and strident, has managed to hit a nail on the head, depending on which head did we nailed on. It is an unquestionable truth that all Muslims have accepted the fact that consuming pork is haram for them; however, there are still those who had also forgotten that corruption is as haram as consuming pork! And, I cannot discount the fact that what Uncle Kadir had written on the subject is as hard as a brickbat!

For those who are too concern in avoiding haram things and are worried on whether they are buying products which are either produced or manufactured by the Israelis, they have to also remind themselves about how dangerou…

KESUNGGUHAN DAN KEIKHLASAN DALAM BERJUANG

Oleh - Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Hari ini (Sabtu, 14 Mac 2009), penulis bekerja.

Mungkin ada di antara mereka yang sedang membaca blog ini (Jose, can't you just accept the fact that no one is following this self indulgence blog!) sedang sedap dan seronok berehat bersama keluarga, atau mungkin sedang lalai dan khusyuk menonton filem Tamil (Jose, usually RTM will screen Tamil drama or its heartbreaking movies in the afternoon for which, only God know why!).

Namun, perlulah diingat bahawa ada juga golongan yang seperti penulis, bekerja pada hari Sabtu dan hari minggu. Antara mereka, yang penulis kenal ialah pengawal keselamatan, librarian, pemandu keretapi Komuter (Jose, I salute all of you!) serta rakan-rakan yang mengenali penulis (As if I am as popular as Mawi, or even that guy who said that he would step down from the post he is holding, come end of March 09!)

Penulis terlupa hendak menyebut ahli politik.

Mereka turut bekerja, tidak kira samada ianya hari biasa, mahupun hari minggu! Rutin …

RUMOURS...

Whilst the writer is trying to scribble down the right word to put on his new writing, he suddenly remembers an old folklore story about a boy who cries wolf. For those who had never heard the story before, the writer will tell you briefly about it.

It tells a story about the Boy, who entertained himself by calling out "Wolf!". Nearby villagers who came to his rescue found that the alarms were false and that they had wasted their time. When the boy was actually confronted by a wolf, the villagers did not believe his cries for help and the wolf tore him into pieces with its sharp claws and later ate him.

The writer also remembers one famous quote relating to the bad habit of lying by former American President, Abraham Lincoln who once said, “No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.”

Sometimes, a lie can become a fruitful truth if it was been said repeatedly and, the general public had fully accept it as it is. It is more worrisome indee…

UNITY AMONG US

Of late, some Malaysians (Jose, notice the usage of the word ‘some’ instead of ‘all’!) are waiting anxiously to see Deputy Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, taking over the mantle from Abdullah Badawi, the current Prime Minister and becomes Malaysia’s 6th Prime Minister.

To spoil the excitement, a report that states Najib’s indirect involvement with the Altantuya murder case (Jose, one of the suspects involved in the murder case was Najib’s bodyguard!) has been circling in the internet (Go and check it out, Jose!), which can see his dream of becoming the Premier, dash into pieces.

Only time will tell and how far truth will prevail but we, as Malaysians can only hope that he will become a Prime Minister for all and will not be depending on slogans nor trying to reach out to us with a number of dreams, as we had seen in the previous administration.

Not to say that he is not a competent Prime Minister, as he has been in the political arena since he was 21!…

KATA-KATAKAN...

Oleh – Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Katakan,
Perkataan-perkataan yang dibisikkan,
Manisnya adalah satu persepsi,
Indahnya satu imansipasi,

Dan ngeri kematian telah menjadi jambatan realiti,
Kepada kekusutan langit yang berpintal,
Seharusnya ia menterjemahkan,
Segala gambaran yang tak terluah dek kata-kata,

Dan khutbah ini melagukan lagu sama,
Apakah ada bezanya?
Dan suara ini menghamburkan harapan berbeza,
Apakah tercetus kelainannya?

Namun akhirnya,
Kesedaran mengupas kulit angan-angan,
Melahirkan hiba pilu jerih rasa,
Dan tercubitkah tidur yang panjang?

Kesempurnaan bicara ini,
Apa adakah ia ungkapan penuh bahaya?
Kerana lupakah sejarah kepada kegagalan,
Ianya berpunca dari kata-kata..

MENTAL BLOCK DISEASE AGAIN!!

By- Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Life is difficult, as some may say it.

What makes life difficult for us?

The main question that will leave a question mark for us is why in the first place, people think that life is difficult?

We learnt a lot as we grew older. But before we reach to that extend, we have to go through numerous challenges. Those challenging tasks will definitely help us to ripen the fruit of maturity.

This writer is not trying to act like a preacher. The introduction above does not give any impression whatsoever about the ongoing process the writer is facing, but just a fraction of what he sees and feels.

Apart from that, the writer himself is actually infected with a very bad disease that usually will infect all writers.

For him, this disease has successfully made his life become so difficult. It has managed to put hold his flow of writing creativity (Jose, as if he has one!

It is known as the Mental-Block disease!
