Rakyat Malaysia merupakan rakyat yang sudah mula menanggung hutang dalam usia yang muda. Apabila tamat sahaja pengajian diUniversiti, segulung ijazah yang diterima dari universiti itu akan diiringi dengan beban hutang yang besar. Dengan segulung ijazah itu mereka akan mengambil giliran turun naik mahkamah kerana tidak mampu untuk melunaskan hutang yang begitu besar.

Belum pun mendapat kerja bekerja semua graduan akan berhadapan dengan hutang selalunya dengan PTPTN. Jika mendapat bekerjaan graduan-graduan ini, belum pun sempat membantu ibu bapa mereka yang membesarkan mereka selama ini sudah terpaksa memberikan tumpuan untuk membayar hutang.

Bila hutang hampir selesai ibu bapa tadi sudah terlalu tua dan ada yang tidak sempat menerima kemanisan hidup dengan anak yang telah berjaya dalam pelajaran mereka. Semakin maju negara ini semakin hilang kemudahan kita yang asas seperti pelajaran dan kos rawatan kesihatan.

Semasa pentadbiran sebelum Dr Mahathir mahasiswa kita mendapat pembiayaan pelajaran melalui biasiswa kerajaan. Mahasiswa kita boleh memohon banyak tempat untuk mendapatkan biasisa itu. Semasa itu pinjaman pelajaran hampir tidak wujud.

Setiap pelajar akan dibiayai oleh salah satu dari banyak punca pembiayaan. Kalau sekumpulan mahasiswa berkumpul setiap diantara mereka ada biasiswa mereka. Setengah mendapat pembiayaan kerajaan negeri yang semasa itu disebut sebagai ‘state scholarship’. Setengahnya mendapat ‘federal scholarship’ iaitu biasiswa kerajaan persekutuan. Yang lain-lain yang tidak mendapat biasiswa kerajaan negeri atau persekutuan akan mendapat biasiswa Bank Bumiputra (BBMB) atau PETRONAS.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah telah menggunakan kedudukannya diBBMB dan Petronas dengan menyediakan ribuan biasiswa bagi pelajar kita kerana salah satu dari matlamat penubuhan agensi-agensi kerajaan ini ialah untuk menyediakan kemudahan pelajaran yang merupakan asas penting bagi kemajuan negara dan bangsa kita dimasa hadapan.

Segala-galanya itu hanya tinggal cerita yang nostalgik sahaja. Mencari pembiayaan untuk anak-anak untuk melanjutkan pelajaran merupakan satu usaha yang sangat memenatkan. Ibu bapa menaikki tangga satu jabatan kesatu jabatan untuk memenuhi hajat anak-anak yang ingin belajar. Pergi keMARA pegawainya kata MARA tidak ada duit. Pergi JPA pegawainya kata tak ada duit. Kemana-mana pergi pun jawapannya,tidak ada duit.

Baru baru ini MARA mengumumkan yang agensi tertua negara itu memberitahu yang MARA tidak lagi menaja pelajar untuk keluar negara bagi kursus sajana muda tetapi hanya menaja untuk kursus sarjana. Tetapi ramai pelajar yang hendak meneruskan pelaran keperongkat sarjana tidak juga dapat perhatian.

Macam mana nak ‘reconcile’ perancangan kerajaan hendak menjadi negara maju tetapi asas bagi rakyat untuk belajar tidak mencukupi? Pada tahun tujuh puluhan semua mahasiswa diberikan penajaan yang tidak payah dibayar kembali. Semasa itu negara kita saolah-olah hampir sama dengan kesebelasan negara-negara Scandinavia dalam mana pelajaran dan pendidikkan adalah percuma.

Tetapi semakin maju negara kita nampaknya semakin susah bagi rakyat hendak mendapatkan kemudahan untuk belajar keperingkat yang tinggi. Segala-galanya terpaksa dibayar dengan harga yang terlalu tinggi yang tidak berpatutan. Wang ratusan billion dibelanjakan sesuka hati dengan menawarkan projek mega yang harganya berlipat kali ganda. Harga yang RM 500 juta ditawarkan dengan harga RM 1 billion misalnya dan cara memerah wang rakyat secara sistematik ini sekarang sudah menjadi cara mentadbir negara kita ini.

Bagi negara maju sepatutnya pendidikkan, kesihatan dan bekalan air adalah percuma. Tetapi disisni semuanya terpaksa dibayar dengan harga yang keterlaluan tingginya.

Negara-negara Scandinavia adalah negara yang berpendapatan tinggi, malahan jauh lebih tinggi dari negara-negara G8. Tetapi pendidikkan adalah percuma. Negara German juga menyediakan kemudahan pelajaran percuma sehingga keperingkat yang tertinggi. Bagi kita Najib baru sahaja merancang untuk menjadikan negara berpendapatan tinggi menjelang tahun 2020 kos pelajaran dan pendidikkan sudah naik keterlaluan dan kemudahan biasiswa telah hampir dihapuskan.

Kita baru berangan-angan untuk menjadi negara berpendapatan tinggi yang belum tentu tercapai tetapi kos pelajaran sudah terlalu tinggi. Persoalannya dimanakah rakyat kelas menengah dan dibawahnya hendak mencari sumber kewangan bagi pendidikkan anak-anak mereka. Hanya yang ada ialah PTPTN yang akan mengejar mereka selepas sahaja mereka mendapat ijazah-ijazah mereka.

Semuanya ini tidak diambil endah oleh pimpinan sejak 3 dekad yang lalu. Apabila ada yang mengkritik maka penyokong-penyokong dan pengampu-pengampu akan menerjah kepada pengkritik-pengkritik tersebut. Akhirnya yang menyokong tindakkan pimpinan mereka itulah yang sekarang terkapai-kapai hendak memberi pendidikkan kepada anak-anak mereka.

Lain-lain perkataan, kita ini menyokong kepimpinan yang akan memberikan kesulitan kepada anak-anak dan cucu kita. Kalau dikaji secara halusnya kitalah yang bertanggunjawab diatas segala kesusahan ini kerana kita juga yang memilih mereka dahulu.

Padan muka kita semua!

I just got this news from my old friend from my boarding school yesterday, I guest it’s true and not rumours…
Be aware…..l

In addition to the recent highlight by the mass media, here is some good
compilation of suspicious business scams.
1. The Cafe Scams – Island Red Cafe & Stevens Corner

(strange, both in Pandan Indah) – Island Red Cafe collects from members
RM6,000 each and promised 5% return every month and even give you a name in
the ROC as a shareholder but what’s the point when they run away? Stevens
Corner, the famous Indian coffee shop follows due to drop of business since
their renovation. They collect RM3,000 per member and promise return of
RM150 monthly and plans to open nine fanchisee cafe called StevensTeaGarden.
Someone mentioned they will make you sign an agreement that give them the
rights NOT to pay you anything in future. If you really wish to join, ask
for a copy of their agreement and consult your lawyer BEFORE paying them.
Bet you will NOT get a copy. Both collect monies from new members with MLM
recruitment schemes and pay the old members like Sunshine Empire. You never
know when they will run away.

2. Sunshine Empire <No longer in operation since busted by BNM>

This licensed and legal Company has an impressive office at the ground level
of KUB building along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, near Menara Public Bank and
AmBank Building . They also have a showroom office at the ground level in
the next building. 3 or 4 months ago, Singapore ‘s Straits Times and The
Paper published big news reminding their people to be careful and NOT to
believe in them. Hope someone can put up the link or
google for it.(As expected, they STOPPED paying back members now and all
investors LOST their money).

Someone below has put a link to the Singapore news. In fact there’s more to
it. Although Singapore is investigating them, they did not stop their
business as the business is legal and, so far, no Singaporean have failed to
receive their commissions as promised. Thus, the government cannot stop them
yet. The news published that the founder, director and group president is
someone named James Phang but he is NOT the owner. Isn’t this quite strange
? At the end of the game, James Phang can just disappear from the company
easily and claimed that he was just "employed". Such trick always happened
in scam businesses. Now, the Company has STOPPED paying commissions and
interests to members with the excuse that the Singapore government has
freezed their bank account while under investigation. Do you think their
boss will be so stupid to keep much monies in the bank to be freezed? They
are all transferred away. It’s just an excuses not to pay back to members
and members are only paid "e-bonus-points" which is cashless. If they wish
to convert to cash, they have to recruit new members to pay them cash and
the recruiter less out from the amount. So victims act like Vampires and
"forced" to victimise other victims if they wish to get their monies back.
And their victims will later transform to vampires and the scam carries on..

3. MobilWallet

This Company owned by 2 young men, Stanley & Rey Gan, office in Queens
Avenue Park has collect multi-millions the last 2 years. Claimed that they
tied up with Telekoms, Utility Board payment like Water & Electricity bills,
even Maybank got fooled by them. Advertisement Billboards everywhere. They
STOPPED paying back their members few months ago and the members cannot do
anything because they were made to sign an agreement unaware that they have
no claim if the company stopped paying them by CHANGING terms and policies.

4. Water Business – Oxygenated and Alkaline Water Products

Some of these are bottled water and some are filters or equipment that
claimed the trick..
One of the better known Company that sold "oxygen" water is SITO (supposed
to stand for Selangor International Trading Organiszation and claimed
Selangor State Government owned some share in it). The key person and
founder is a Dato Robert Ong from Rawang but his name is no longer in the
business now. Their products are sold for RM2 to RM3 for a 350ml bottle and
now concentrating mostly in the Indian market. Their Chinese and Malays
market are long gone since a year or 2 ago. Their customers are made to
believe that their water has more oxygen and able to give miraculous effects
for the body. Water is H2O, how to put more O into it ? Anyone knows how
much oxygen do we breathe into our body everyday at FOC ? Latest news is
that this SITO Company is going to create new label to market under a new
Company since the SITO name has already gone bad. Someone informed that this
Company is owing a lot of money (due to refunds) to ex-stockists but just
refuse to pay them. (Latest news, SITO shifted to another place and their
MLM business has closed but planning to start again with a different name,
beware!!)

Alkaline Products – Can anyone explain how it can work for the body ? The
stomach’s gastric liquid is so acidic that water of any pH that goes through
it will not make any difference.
5. Car Fuel Booster – K-Link

K-Link, the famous scam MLM Company that sold the footpatch TAKARA, later
the "cock-ring" and energy-card launched the petrol-saving pills last year.
Got so hot that even grocery shops are selling for them.. Recently many of
these cars that used the pills are rushing to the workshops to clean the
residual. Few months ago, another MLM Company launched a fuel booster
gadget, claimed that saves up to 20% fuel, that is attached to the cigarette
lighter. Started off well using binary plan but business begin to fade now
and most users find it NOT effective.
6. Perfumery Products – was a member many years ago

(eg. Lampe Berger & Bel Air ) (more details later). Lampe Berger is not so
hot now in the neighbouring countries but there are still new victims every
month in Malaysia . Must thank those who have contributed and kept the
thread alive here in Kopitiam. Bel-Air have closed in Malaysia .. LB is
almost zero in Singapore . This perfumery product from France with over 100
years history is just bottles and fragrance (check the factory’s website)
but the Company marketing them in Asia claimed "aromatheraphy" products.
Hong Kong TVB aired a program that exposed their scam but their members
claimed that HK’s TVB already apologised to them. Note that the biggest
strength in a MLM Scam is their members will go all way out to lie in order
to defend for their Company. The reason is simple; these members fear that
they will not be able to make their money back if the Company collapsed.
Knowing that the Lampe Berger products are moving slow, they add a line of
skincare products named Estebel, also claimed to have over 100 years history
in France. (Hardly any more Chinese newcomers, they are now tapping the
Malays in Malaysia .)
7. Energy Products

(eg. stone pendants, bracelets, mattress and pillows). They use all sorts of
gimmicks and demonstration to make you into believing them. They will do
some tricks and demo to prove that these products really produce energy BUT
is there any tricks in their demo? So what if there really produce energy;
is it good or strong enough to help the body? The effect is actually PLACEBO
which I will elaborate in a new thread soon. (More details later.)
8. Hi-Tech Products

Names like bio-tech, nano-tech that claimed millions of dollars of research
involved, eg Bio-Young and XKL few years ago. Most of these will claim a
professor behind them (even with name and picture of a person) or used words
like "U.S.A. formula", "German Technology" or "Nanotechnology" and no
further details (more details later). If you ask for more details like the
professor or factory’s address, the answer will be "trade secrets".

9. Investment Schemes <No longer in operation since busted by BNM>

SWISSCASH is the King of all. Swisscash is nearly over now but there are
many similar and smaller ones that are still on. (Now, it’s closed or
stopped paying back members.)
10. GoldQuest

This Company that claimed to be HK-based started with some non-value
gold-plated coins that are sold for over RM2,000, have several names and
changed products several times. QuestVacation, QuestNet, etc. They have
several offices in Amcorp Mall, PJ and their key person (in fact, the
owner), a Malaysian Indian was arrested last year in Indonesia for having
involved in a very big Phillipines scam. Most of their overseas offices are
closed or inactive but their Malaysia business is still hot, with some
"energy" products. (Can someone please provide a link which showed the news
that their boss was involved in a big scam in Philippines and was arrested
in last year?)

11. Numerogy & Fortune Telling

A Company named Visible is using MLM to sell fortune telling classes using
your birthday based on numerology fortune telling. Prpspects will be told
that they need to buy a certain "number" between 1 to 9 in the form of
pendants or bracelets made of stainless steel and sold from RM600 to
RM20,000. Customers, or rather victims, are mostly females from rural areas.
Very hot in Penang now and a number of spin-off Companies have started.

12. MJ – Life

MJ-Life – This Company boost of a very big background with many many years
of history which is NOT true. Their people or associates may be long in
business but nothing to do with their MLM launched recently. Why do I
consider it a scam or bad? New members are told to pay a sum of money (up to
RM1000) and you get NOTHING for it. You only get a membership can entitle
you to enjoy all sorts of special price and discounts when you have medical
check-ups at their centres. They will claim all those check-ups cost more if
done elsewhere. It’s not true. Only the naive and those new to medical
check-ups will fall victims to them. Most members who paid the money ended
up with nothing.

13. Seaweed Venture Scams

1 such Company is located in Taman Maluri, Cheras. They will ask you to
invest a few thousands ringgits for their venture of growing seaweeds in
East Malaysia and you are guaranteed returns. To gain your confidence
further, they will tell you your investment money is secured by "insurance"
or "unit trusts" & "trustees". When you ask for further documents to prove,
they will give all sorts of excuses or just ignore you because they know
they cannot get you. These Seaweed scam is one of the hottest now, warn all
your friends about it before they are victimised.

14. MXM (Previously MGM)
This is a master scam among the younger group, very successful 2 or 3 years
ago but since there moved to their big 10-storey office at Phileo Damansara
and changed name to MXM, their business dropped. They collect members
RM3,000 to RM4,000 with credit card monthly easy payment and in return you
get a hospital benefits insurance from Pacific Insurance worth only a few
hundred RMs together with some you-don’t-need medical check-ups from their
associate Company Pathlab. Also talk about fitness, lifestyles bullshit that
is all worthless.

15. Gano Excel

This company from the north, a copycat of DXN selling Lingzhi capsules
created a new Company called Gano iTouch to cash-in on the internet like
e-Cosway after their Company went down the drain since the last 2 years,
selling Linzhi and some no-value energy pendants and alkaline water gadgets.
They provide free transport every weekend from KL to visit their Alor Star
office.

16. NuLife (HK)

This Company started by some HK people has been in Malaysia for more than 10
years but they have flopped in HK and Malaysia due to bad management and a
product scam making use of a prosecuted American named Dr Jeffrey Bland,
found guilty of false products claim. Since this case in the US leaked out
and many Malaysians found out that the real boss in HK is a Steven Tang (he
cheated many Malaysians in another scheme about 20 years ago) their business
went down all the way. Now they claim Malaysian partners cheated them and
start a new Company in Malaysia . Watch out, this new Company will come out
with some investment scheme idea that will get many to lose their money.

17. Arowana Fish Breeding

Oora from Germany , Biofuel (Kompleks Maluri) etc – These are some newer
scams. Arowana fish venture ask you to invest some money and give you fixed
return. Biofuel will tell you their Indonesia connections (just like
Sunshine Empire before using Taiwan) & Oora from Germany (I never trust
those cruel Germans) that market some bio-chips and a gadget that claims to
give energy and therapeutic effects of accupunture, tai-chi, yoga, etc
depending how you set the toy-like gadget, wear it on your body and you get
the effect later.

They could not explain or provide any demonstration to prove their
effectiveness. Only doctors and papers claim that I will never trust. The
health effect is actually PLACEBO, which I will elaborate in a different
thread.

ADUAN KESALAHAN DALAM TEMPOH PEMBUANGAN UNDI DAN PENGIRAAN PERJALANAN BAGI PEMILIHAN MAJLIS PERWAKILAN PELAJAR UKM SESI 09/10.

Berikut adalah antara tindakan yang telah dilakukan oleh pihak Jawatankuasa Pelaksana Pemilihan Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar di beberapa Kolej Kediaman.

Kolej Keris Mas.

1) Bermula jam 9 pagi salah seorang pelajar Fakulti Pengajian Islam Tahun 2 telah diberikan kertas undi bagi kerusi Fakulti Pengajian Islam tahun 3 sedangkan tiada pertandingan untuk kerusi Pengajian Islam tahun 2 kerana Menang Tanpa Bertanding. Merujuk kepada Perkara 29 Peraturan Pemilihan, calon yang menang tanpa bertanding akan diisytiharkan tiada pertandingan akan dijalankan. Tindakan ini jelas menyalahi peruntuntukan ini yang boleh dianggap sebagai berniat jahat tujuan mengelirukan pengundi dan seterusnya menunjukkan ketidakcekapan Jawatankuasa Pelaksana kolej ini.

1) Jawatankuasa Pelaksana Kolej telah berterusan mencatat nombor siri yang tercatat pada kertas undi walaupun telah dibantah oleh Calon dan Wakil Calon secara terhormat kepada Pengetua yang bertindak sebagai Ketua Pusat Undi dengan merujuk kepada buku Peraturan Pemilihan Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar UKM 2009. Merujuk kepada Perkara 43 (1) Peraturan Pemilihan MPP.,Kertas undi adalah rahsia dan hanya dapat dikeluarkan pada hari pembuangan undi sahaja. Lebih teruk lagi Calon dan Wakil Calon yang membuat bantahan telah ditekan dan dimarahi oleh Pegetua Kolej berkenaan. Tindakan Jawatankuasa Pelaksana di peringkat Kolej ini telah dengan jelas melanggar peruntukan dalam Peraturan ini walau dengan apa alasan sekalipun. Tindakan ini juga telah dengan jelas sebagai usaha memberikan tekanan kepada pengundi pengundi terutama pelajar pelajar tahun 1.

2) Pihak Felo telah memberikan arahan kepada JAKSA Kolej untuk membuka Kaunter SPKG yang telah menimbulkan keraguan dan ketegangan antara calon dan wakil wakil calon yang bertanding. Alasan yang digunakan untuk perkara ini adalah setiap siswa/I perlu mendaftar di kaunter SPKG tersebut dahulu sebelum mengundi dengan alasan pemberian merit untuk pelajar yang turun mengundi. Ini adalah dikira sebagai penyalahgunaan kuasa oleh felo felo untuk tujuan yang salah. Merujuk kepada Perkara 48(3)(a) Peraturan Pemilihan , adalah tidak dibenarkan untuk mewujudkan pondok pondok panas sepanjang hari pengundian. Tindakan Felo felo dan JAKSA ini jelas telah melanggar peraturan dan menimbulkan ketegangan yang gagal di tangani walaupun aduan telah dibuat kepada Jawatankuasa Pelaksana peringkat kolej.

3) Tindakan diatas juga telah menimbulkan pertelingkahan yang buruk antara calon dan wakil calon dengan pihak Pegawai Keselamatan peringkat atasan sendiri iaitu Ketua Pegawai Keselamatan yang merupakan Jawatankuasa Induk Pemilihan MPP merujuk kepada Perkara 5 (2)(i) yang bertindak bias atau berat sebelah selepas gagal menangani isu ini sehingga jam 5.00 petang.

4) Tindakan mewujudkan Kaunter SPKG ini juga telah dikesan dengan tujuan yang menyalahi Peraturan 48(3)(b) dan (c) yang mana Kaunter tersebut telah digunakan untuk berusaha meraih undi kepada pihak pihak tertentu dan juga bagi tujuan mengedar senarai nama nama calon yang bertanding. Kewujudan kaunter SPKG ini telah disahkan oleh YDP JAKSA kolej ini iaitu Saudara Faizul Imran Bin Nadzri melalui notis yang di cop olehny dan ditampal di dinding Kolej berkenaan.

5) JAKSA kolej Keris Mas juga telah bertindak memakai baju yang sama berlabel “Aspirasi” bagi tujuan meraih undi dan memberi tekanan kepada para pengundi, Calon dan Wakil Calon sepanjang tempoh hari pengundian. Perkara ini telah melanggar Perkara 48(2) yang melarang menunjukkan identiti yang melambangkan identiti sebuah kumpulan seperti pakaian, tanda nama dan lain lain. Perkara ini telah diadu dan dibantah kepada Ketua Pusat Undi iaitu Pengetua Kolej sendiri oleh calon calon tetapi tidak dapat diselesaikan malahan tekanan diberikan kepada Calon yang mengadu dan membantah.

Kolej Burhanuddin Helmi.

1) Pihak JAKSA kolej bersama beberapa kumpulan pelajar telah bertindak mengedarkan senarai nama nama calon kepada pelajar pelajar Tahun 1 sebagai tekanan meraih undi kepada pengundi. Pelajar adalah dilarang untuk memancing undi sepanjang hari pengundian dengan merujuk kepada Perkara 23 Buku Panduan Calon Pemilihan Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar 2009. Walaupun perkara ini telah dibantah oleh Calon dan Wakil CAlon, namun perkara ini masih lagi berterusan berlaku dan Wakil Calon dan Calon pula yang diberi tekanan apabila membuat bantahan.

2) Jawatankuasa Pelaksana Kolej telah berterusan mencatat nombor siri yang tercatat pada kertas undi walaupun telah dibantah oleh Calon dan Wakil Calon secara terhormat kepada Pengetua yang bertindak sebagai Ketua Pusat Undi dengan merujuk kepada buku Peraturan Pemilihan Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar UKM 2009. Merujuk kepada Perkara 43 (1) Peraturan Pemilihan MPP.,Kertas undi adalah rahsia dan hanya dapat dikeluarkan pada hari pembuangan undi sahaja. Lebih teruk lagi Calon dan Wakil Calon yang membuat bantahan telah ditekan dan dimarahi oleh Pegetua Kolej berkenaan. Tindakan Jawatankuasa Pelaksana di peringkat Kolej ini telah dengan jelas melanggar peruntukan dalam Peraturan ini walau dengan apa alasan sekalipun. Tindakan ini juga telah dengan jelas sebagai usaha memberikan tekanan kepada pengundi pengundi terutama pelajar pelajar tahun 1

3) Semasa proses pengiraan undi dijalankan, Pengetua sebagai Ketua Pusat Undi telah melakukan tindakan yang meragukan Calon dan Wakil Calon yang mengira undi. Tindakan Pengetua Kolej iaitu Prof.Madya Dr.Kadderi Md.Desa.

Kolej Tun Hussin Onn.

1) Pengundi pengundi tahun 3 Fakulti teknologi dan Sains Maklumat telah tidak dibenarkan untuk mengundi atas alasan kerusi yang dipertandingkan adalah bagi pelajar tahun 1 dan 2 sahaja. Mereka hanya diberikan 1 kertas undi sahaja iaitu bagi memilih Caloon Umum.

2) Semasa Pengiraan Undi dijalankan, tiada penyelarasan untuk memisahkan undi yang rosak. Ada diantara kertas undi yang rosak diterima tanpa sebab yang munasabah dan tanpa persetujuan daripada calon wan wakil kira undi calon.

3) Terdapat sekumpulan pelajar yang masih lagi meraih undi disekitar kawasan kolej dengan menunjukkan identity perkumpulan dan berusaha mengedar risalah senarai nama calon sepanjang hari pengundian.

Kolej Ibrahim Yaakob.

1) Jawatankuasa Pelaksana Kolej telah berterusan mencatat nombor siri yang tercatat pada kertas undi walaupun telah dibantah oleh Calon dan Wakil Calon secara terhormat kepada Pengetua yang bertindak sebagai Ketua Pusat Undi dengan merujuk kepada buku Peraturan Pemilihan Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar UKM 2009. Merujuk kepada Perkara 43 (1) Peraturan Pemilihan MPP.,Kertas undi adalah rahsia dan hanya dapat dikeluarkan pada hari pembuangan undi sahaja. Lebih teruk lagi Calon dan Wakil Calon yang membuat bantahan telah ditekan dan dimarahi oleh Pegetua Kolej berkenaan. Tindakan Jawatankuasa Pelaksana di peringkat Kolej ini telah dengan jelas melanggar peruntukan dalam Peraturan ini walau dengan apa alasan sekalipun. Tindakan ini juga telah dengan jelas sebagai usaha memberikan tekanan kepada pengundi pengundi terutama pelajar pelajar tahun 1.

2) Salah seorang pelajar tahun 2 Fakulti Sains dan Teknologi hanya diberikan kertas undi bagi memilih calon kerusi umum sahaja tanpa diberikan kertas undi Fakulti. Tindakan ini telah menimbulkan keraguan kepada pengundi, Calon dan wakil calon di kolej berkenaan.

Pusat Pembuangan Undi di Pusaneka.

1) Pusat pembuangan undi ini telah dibuka lewat iaitu sekitar jam 8.20 pagi. Ini telah menimbulkan masalah kepada pelajar pelajar yang ingin mengundi. Tempoh waktu pembuangan undi adalah dari jam 8.00 pagi hingga 5.00 petang.

Secara umumnya, terdapat banyak salahlaku yang ditelah dikesan yang dilakukan diperingkat Kolej Kediaman dan kebanyakan daripadanya gagal ditangani dengan baik oleh Pengetua yang bertindak sebagai Ketua Pusat Undi. Kebanyakan tindakan ini telah memberikan tekanan kepada para pengundi, Calon dan Wakil Calon sepanjang tempoh Pengundian dan Pengiraan Undi yang berlangsung semalam bersamaan 28 Januari 2010. Masalah catatan nombor siri ini berlaku hampir di kesemua kolej kediaman yang dikawal oleh Pengetua pengetua tetapi perkara ini tidak berbangkit sama sekali di Pusat Pembuangan Undi di Pusaneka yang diuruskan oleh Jawatankuasa Pelaksana daripada Fakulti fakulti.

Atas sebab-sebab inilah dan banyak sebab-sebab yang lain yang tidak dikemukakan diperingkat kami merasakan perlu melakukan beberapa tindakan,baik dari segi rundingan dan majlis-majlis penerangan kepada mahasiswa terutamanya.

Kepada mahasiswa sekalian, marilah kita terus menyatakan sokongan kita menolak kezaliman dan penipuan yang dilakukan oleh pihak-pihak yang mempunyai kepentingan tertentu dalam mencatur politik kampus saban tahun.

SHARE IT
WITH CHILDREN



Power of Money
, By
Adam Khoo

(
Singapore
‘s youngest millionaire at 26 yrs.)

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty
frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia ,

Indonesia
,
Thailand
and Suzhou
( China ). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to
bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me
on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked
. He asked, ‘How come a millionaire like you is traveling
economy?
‘  My reply was, ‘That’s why I am a
millionaire. ‘ He still looked pretty confused
.


This again confirms that
greatest lie ever told about wealth
(which I
wrote about in my latest book ‘Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires’ ). Many
people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci,
Hugo Boss
, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why
so  many people never become rich because the moment that they earn more
money, they think that it is only natural that they spend
more, putting them back to square one
.


The truth is that most self-made
millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value
. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their
wealth so much faster
. 

Over the last 7 years, I have
saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about
60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2
kids, etc. to support)
.
 
Still, it is
way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky).



I refuse to buy a first class ticket
or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money.
However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2-year old daughter to
Julia Gabriel
Speech and Drama without thinking twice
.


When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur
s Orgn)a few years back (YEO) is an exclusive club open to those who are
under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business) I discovered that
those who were self-made thought like me.  Many of them with net worth
well over $5m, travelled
economy
class
and some even drove Toyota ‘s and Nissans, not Audis,
Mercs, BMWs
.


I noticed that it was only those
who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few
ministers’ and tycoons’ sons in the club) who spent like there was no
tomorrow. Somehow, when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you
do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family’s wealth
(no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third
generation


Thank God my rich dad foresaw
this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business
.


Then some people ask me, ‘What
is the point in making so much money if you don’t enjoy it?’ The thing is
that I don’t really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or
sitting first class
.
 
Even if buying
something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last
.

Material happiness never lasts,
it just give you a quick fix. After a while you feel lousy again and have to
buy the next thing which you think will make you happy
. I always think that if you need material things to make
you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life
..

Instead, what makes me happy is
when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes
me happy is when I see my companies and trainers reaching more and more
people every year in so many more countries
.


What makes me really happy is
when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and
inspired someone’s life
.

What makes me really happy is
reading all your wonderful posts about how this blog is inspiring you. This
happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what
a Rolex would do for me
.


I think the point I want to put
across is that happiness must come from doing your life’s work (be it
teaching, building homes, designing,trading, winning tournaments etc.) and
the money that comes is only a by-product
. If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you
earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that you are living a
life of meaninglessness
.

Hi all
I think it’s been a long time I didn’t write anything due to some workload.
I’ve come back with some sparkle thoughts that might brighter your mind with the speech of the US President, Barack Obama.
I loved his speech on this topic and hope you’ll share it with your children. It’s relevant for us here in Malaysia too.
When I first read this statement from this US President, I really aspire and support him. This is how to teach our children to be a very successful person in the future. Amazing speech that will change the world, the person to be the best leader of all times.
 
Regards to all of the Humanity all over the world.

Prepared Remarks of President Barack Obama
Back to School Event

Arlington, Virginia
September 8, 2009
 

The President: Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. And we’ve got students tuning in from all across America, kindergarten through twelfth grade. I’m glad you all could join us today. 
I know that for many of you, today is the first day of school. And for those of you in kindergarten, or starting middle or high school, it’s your first day in a new school, so it’s understandable if you’re a little nervous. I imagine there are some seniors out there who are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go. And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you could’ve stayed in bed just a little longer this morning.
I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia for a few years, and my mother didn’t have the money to send me where all the American kids went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday – at 4:30 in the morning..   
Now I wasn’t too happy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d fall asleep right there at the kitchen table. But whenever I’d complain, my mother would just give me one of those looks and say, "This is no picnic for me either, buster."
So I know some of you are still adjusting to being back at school. But I’m here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to talk with you about your education and what’s expected of all of you in this new school year. 
Now I’ve given a lot of speeches about education. And I’ve talked a lot about responsibility.
I’ve talked about your teachers’ responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing you to learn. 
I’ve talked about your parents’ responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and get your homework done, and don’t spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with that Xbox. 
I’ve talked a lot about your government’s responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren’t working where students aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve. 
But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world – and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities.  Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed. 
And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself. 
Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide. 
Maybe you could be a good writer – maybe even good enough to write a book or articles in a newspaper – but you might not know it until you write a paper for your English class. Maybe you could be an innovator or an inventor – maybe even good enough to come up with the next iPhone or a new medicine or vaccine – but you might not know it until you do a project for your science class. Maybe you could be a mayor or a Senator or a Supreme Court Justice, but you might not know that until you join student government or the debate team.
And no matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers. You can’t drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.
And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future. 
You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment.  You’ll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free. You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy. 
We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that – if you quit on school – you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country. 
Now I know it’s not always easy to do well in school. I know a lot of you have challenges in your lives right now that can make it hard to focus on your schoolwork.
I get it. I know what that’s like. My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn’t always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didn’t fit in. 
So I wasn’t always as focused as I should have been. I did some things I’m not proud of, and got in more trouble than I should have. And my life could have easily taken a turn for the worse. 
But I was fortunate. I got a lot of second chances and had the opportunity to go to college, and law school, and follow my dreams. My wife, our First Lady Michelle Obama, has a similar story. Neither of her parents had gone to college, and they didn’t have much. But they worked hard, and she worked hard, so that she could go to the best schools in this country.
Some of you might not have those advantages. Maybe you don’t have adults in your life who give you the support that you need. Maybe someone in your family has lost their job, and there’s not enough money to go around. Maybe you live in a neighborhood where you don’t feel safe, or have friends who are pressuring you to do things you know aren’t right. 
But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’ s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying. 
Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future. 
That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America. 
Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez.
I’m thinking about Andoni Schultz, from Los Altos, California, who’s fought brain cancer since he was three. He’s endured all sorts of treatments and surgeries, one of which affected his memory, so it took him much longer – hundreds of extra hours – to do his schoolwork. But he never fell behind, and he’s headed to college this fall. 
And then there’s Shantell Steve, from my hometown of Chicago, Illinois. Even when bouncing from foster home to foster home in the toughest neighborhoods, she managed to get a job at a local health center; start a program to keep young people out of gangs; and she’s on track to graduate high school with honors and go on to college.
Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell aren’t any different from any of you. They faced challenges in their lives just like you do. But they refused to give up. They chose to take responsibility for their education and set goals for themselves. And I expect all of you to do the same. 
That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending time each day reading a book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community. Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe environment to study and learn. Maybe you’ll decide to take better care of yourself so you can be more ready to learn. And along those lines, I hope you’ll all wash your hands a lot, and stay home from school when you don’t feel well, so we can keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter.
Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it. 
I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work — that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things. 
But the truth is, being successful is hard. You won’t love every subject you study. You won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try.
That’s OK.  Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who’ve had the most failures. JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, and he lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once said, "I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." 
These people succeeded because they understand that you can’t let your failures define you – you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time. If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying. 
No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard work. You’re not a varsity athlete the first time you play a new sport. You don’t hit every note the first time you sing a song. You’ve got to practice. It’s the same with your schoolwork. You might have to do a math problem a few times before you get it right, or read something a few times before you understand it, or do a few drafts of a paper before it’s good enough to hand in. 
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’ t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and to learn something new. So find an adult you trust – a parent, grandparent or teacher; a coach or counselor – and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals. 
And even when you’re struggling, even when you’re discouraged, and you feel like other people have given up on you – don’t ever give up on yourself. Because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.
The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best. 
It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.
So today, I want to ask you, what’s your contribution going to be? What problems are you going to solve? What discoveries will you make? What will a president who comes here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about what all of you did for this country?  
Your families, your teachers, and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have the education you need to answer these questions. I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn. But you’ve got to do your part too. So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.
Recently, I’ve surved to some website that contains additional knowledge on how to creating a business online. I just click the link and went to the site. I’ve read some of the features for a newcomers to the business. Somehow, with the influence of my mom, I’ve became one of the paid member in this site.
It’s very simple process that everybody could understand the flow of the business. Something like Register->Paid->Generate Income. It’s too simple. Only with an amount of RM50 only (one time payment lifetime), you can get some extra money from the user above and below you.
Hereby, I attach the link to this site if and only if you really want to try on Internet Business Marketing.
Well just try it. If you’ve tried it, you will do it. And you’ll addict with it. Because the cost is really cheap.
