Salam, kepada para bloggers dan pembaca blogsyok sendiriini.
Hari ini, Ahad 25 April 2010 adalah hari penentuan. 
Penentuan kepada maruah dua pihak. Kepada semua retorik yang telahpun disampaikan.
Para pengundi di kawasan Hulu Selangor akan menentukanhalatujubuat PKR dan juga BN. Ianya juga akan membentuk kepada scenario politik pada Pilihanraya Umum ke-13 kelak.
Pakatan Rakyat, biarpun telah mengadakan satu konvensyenmockuppada akhir tahun lepas masih lagi gagal meletakkan calon yang dilabelkan sebagai calon Pakatan Rakyat dan bukan calon PKR! 
Mungkin ianya nampak seperti remeh tetapi lihatlah dari sudut ini, apakah konflik yang berlaku di dalam PKR langsung tidak memberikan kesan kepada gabungan Pakatan Rakyat secara umumnya? Atau mungkin, pengundi langsung tidak melihat perkara ini dan hanya ingin melihat PKR sahaja yang menang?

THE DRUNKARD SKELETON IN THE CLOSET

By - Hesmel Faznee Faisal
Salam, to fellow bloggers and readers of this self pitiful blog.
Everyone make mistakes. Even some of the readers of this self indulging blog have done at least once a horrible mistake or commit terrible sins in the past. No one in this world can proudly say they have not done anything wrong, let alone are at liberty to call themselves a saint!
We have choices, either to remorse or repeating it, again and again!
Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, the PKR candidate who is contesting in the Hulu Selangor by-election, has said here that he regretted with the mistakes he had done in the past and would want to bury the skeleton in his closet deep inside the Hulu Selangor soil, so to speak!
I believed everyone has a right to say they have regretted and would want to put those sins in the past.
The main issue here is not about exposing Zaid’s drinking habits or the amount of wealth he owned but about the spirit of true competition and integrity one has, in order to gain major support f…

YM (BUKAN YAHOO MESSENGER!)

Salam, buat para bloggers dan pembaca blog syok sendiri ini!

Izinkan saya untuk tertawa dahulu selepas membaca berita menarik di sini.
Dah, saya dah selesai ketawa. Memang kata orang, seronok jika kita ketawa banyak-banyak. Menghilangkan stress dan sebagainya. Sekarang, bercakap seorang bukan lagi dilihat sebagai perbuatan kurang siuman. Tanyalah mereka yang menggunakan hands free yang mempunyai kelebihan Bluetooth!
Jalan lain (Or anyway!), masyarakat kita (khususnya Melayu!) cukup terpegun dan mudah teruja jika mereka berurusan dengan sesiapa yang mempunyai gelaran. Bukan, bukan gelaran seperti Limah Jongang, Awang Spanar, atau Awang Trasher! Tetapi gelaran seperti YBhg. Datuk, Tan Sri, Datuk Seri, Tun mahupun Yang Teramat Mulia sekian, sekian dan sekian.
Hanyalah kerana pengakuan itu dibuat, orang tanpa sebarang usul periksa terus mengiakannya dan mengakui hamba Allah itu sebagai anak angkat kepada seorang kerabat diraja!
Bagi saya, secara peribadi gelaran ha…

THE INTERFAITH COMMITTEE

By - Hesmel Faznee Faisal
Salam, to fellow bloggers and readers of this syok sendiri blog!
The Star has reported here that the Government had given a green light for the establishment of the Interfaith Commitee.
I believe the interfaith committee will able to resolve a lot of religious misunderstanding between us. This positive development on creating religious understanding among us jived well with the concept of 1 Malaysia!
However, I am slightly disenchanted when the person chosen to lead the Committee is not amongst the religious scholars but someone who still have a political inkling. The reason given for the choice was that person has good contacts with various religious leaders (A lame excuse, don’t you think Jose?)
Why can’t the Government choose a credible scholar?
I have names that I think would become the most suitable candidate to become chairman for the Council. Prof. Dr Mahmud Zuhdi (when is he going to get the Professor Emeritus title?) for one, is known to have a very libera…

SEMANGAT KEKITAAN DAN KEBERSAMAAN

Salam, kepada para bloggers dan pembaca blog syok sendiri ini!
Rasanya, masih ramai lagi yang belum memahami konsep 1Malaysia yang sebenar.
Saya akui, sejak kebelakangan ini saya kerap menulis secara positif mengenai konsep 1Malaysia. Ianya dilakukan bukanlah atas dasar membodek Perdana Menteri. Mengapa harus saya membodek beliau? Beliau tidak mengenali saya dan saya pula tiada kepentingan apa-apa pun yang hendak dicapai.
Apa yang menjadikan saya tertarik kepada konsep 1Malaysia ialah kerana ianya membantu di dalam mengharmonikan kembali hubungan kaum yang tercalar sejak dua menjak ini. Sebagai seorang yang mempunyai kenalan rapat di kalangan bukan Melayu (back in my schooling up to my university days, I have many non Malay friends who are very close to me, even closer than my own relatives!) saya merasa bersyukur kerana setidak-tidaknya 1Malaysia adalah satu usaha yang baik untuk memulihkan keadaan!
Rasanya, tidak perlu seseorang itu menidakkan asal usulnya se…

UNITY

Salam, to fellow bloggers and readers of this self pitiful blog!
My office had organized a farewell party to one of our colleague recently. First of all, let me describe to you the race composition in my office. I believe it does reflect the true notion of 1 Malaysia!
For instance, the CEO who leads the company and the administrative executives are Malays; the General Managers and an “army” of the sales executives are Chinese and the person in-charge for the Project, Development and Administration are Indians. Allow me to give you a brief story of our core business. Firstly, we are among the advertising companies in Malaysia and if you happen to drive on the PLUS Highway stretching across the north and south borders, you will able to notice our signage along the way!
I for sure am not going to delve much in our business background but would like to share what had taken place during the party. As a new staff, I don’t know how close this former colleague of mine w…
