Ex-wife invited to Yusry-Lisa wedding

So Yusry KRU is set to wed actress Lisa Surihani on Feb 23.

But the biggest question that's buzzing on everyone's mind is perhaps: Is the talented Malaysian director inviting his ex-wife, actress Erra Fazira to the wedding?

Both camps are dogding the touchy feely subject. But Erra has already tweeted her congrats to her ex-hubby, saying: Congrats to @Yusry and @Lisa. Happy for you both. May you be blessed with a cute baby soon.
Yusry and Erra divorced in 2006 after three years of marriage.

A source close to the KRU family assures The Daily Chilli that Erra and Yusry are on talking terms. "Despite the nasty rumours that had been circulating around, it wasn't a nasty divorce for both of them," said the insider. "They're OK with each other."

When pressed for comments, Yusry's big bro, Norman Abd Halim said: "I don't know who will be invited. They (Yusry and Lisa) have not prepared the guest list."

He also declined to reveal the hantaran (bridal money and gifts) and cost of wedding, because "Yusry doesn't want to highlight those things." DailyChili

Naza Kia To Double Sales To 24,000 Units Next Year

Naza Kia Malaysia expects its annual sales to double to 24,000 units next year against a background of minimal growth in the country's car sales, its chief operating officer, Datuk Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar said.

He said the introduction of the All-New Optima K5, with a monthly target of 300 units, would drive Naza Kia's sales in the highly-competitive D-segment (large family car) of the market.

"With this vehicle, we will be able to take the Kia brand to new heights in 2012," he told reporters after the launch of the Optima K5 and its flagship, Kia Red Cube - Petaling Jaya outlet, here.

Hafiz said total industry volume this year was expected to remain at last year's level despite the recent Thai floods as well as earthquake and tsunami in Japan which hurt vehicle and parts production.

He said sales volume of the new cars registered in Malaysia was forecast to remain flat next year in view of the coming general elections and European economic uncertainty that could affect the world.

"Maintaining sales at the current level is good enough for next year," he said.

Hafiz said the Kia Red Cube was the first of its kind in Malaysia and the second such 3S (sales, service and spare parts) outlet in Asean.

"In 2012, we will open another Kia Red Cube either in northern or southern.

"At the same time, 27 of our existing outlets are currently being upgraded to incorporate Kia's new space identity," he said.

Naza Group of Companies, joint group executive chairman, SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, said the Optima K5 was named 'Best of the Best' at the 2011 Red Hot Design Award.

The car has a fuel consumption on a combined cycle of 7.6 litres per 100km, he said.

It comes in a show white, bright silver and platinum graphite, he said, adding that customers could begin to book the car in January next year with a price tag of RM143,888.

1Malaysia Is A Philosophy, Not A Mere Slogan, Says Najib

SERI KEMBANGAN, Dec 18 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said on Sunday that 1Malaysia is a philosophy and not a mere slogan, stressing that it can transform the mindset of Malaysians towards building the country into a highly-developed nation by 2020.

He said that if Malaysians understood what was needed to hold the country together, they would realise the importance of giving continuous support to the government which had long and proven experience in building the nation.

"I believe we can achieve prosperity and become a strong country if all Malaysians embrace the notion of the 1Malaysia philosophy," he said in his speech at the ground-breaking ceremony of the Federation of Chinese Association Malaysia's (Hua Zong) new building, here.

The RM55 million project, expected to be completed in two years, comprises a Chinese museum, library, reading room, information and research rooms, meeting rooms, a conference hall and a multi-purpose banquet hall.

The prime minister also announced RM5 million in government contribution for the project, of which RM2.5 million will be made available next year and the balance in 2013. - Bernama

Dr Mahathir voices support for Peaceful Assembly Bill

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has voiced his support for the Peaceful Assembly Bill 2011 which was tabled in Parliament Tuesday.

The former prime minister said the new act was important to ensure that public assemblies would be free from violence or actions that could cause losses to others.

"The act has good intentions...besides preventing certain quarters from taking advantage of a situation, so that violence does not become a problem to the country," he said here Wednesday, when asked to comment on the bill, which will become an act if passed and gazetted.

The bill tabled by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz, is a transformation of the existing legal framework relating to the rights of citizens to assemble peacefully, as provided in the Federal Constitution.

"While people have the right to hold demonstrations, the rights of others will have to be protected by the government," said Dr Mahathir.

He said holding a demonstration close to Hari Raya, for instance, would adversely affect the business of traders, with the small ones already struggling to make a living. - Bernam

`Himpun Sejuta Umat' Makes a stand against apostasy

 Datuk Dr Hasan Ali

 Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria

 Ibrahim Ali

The planned gathering of a million Muslims saw only a few thousand people showing up at the Shah Alam Stadium here, but organisers said they had met their objective of defending the faith against threats of apostasy.

Arguing that the spirit of those present at the Himpunan Sejuta Umat (Himpun) assembly was more important than the number, chief organiser Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid said it was a success as it proved that Muslims could come together to talk calmly about issues affecting their religion.

“We are not concerned about the numbers,” he said after the four-hour gathering that started at 2pm yesterday

“It can be a small number but the spirit is the same, whether one million came ... or one hundred thousand or one thousand,” Mohd Azmi said.

“This rally is a symbol of Muslim unity, of Muslim determination to keep the country free of religious tension,” he said.

“We conducted the gathering without any feelings of animosity towards non-Muslims,” he said, adding that the nation's founding fathers had advised against attempts to proselytise Muslims.

Mohd Azmi also stressed that it was the right of Muslims to stand up against what they saw as an encroachment on Islam, which is accorded a special position in the Constitution.
“This is the right of the Muslims.

“We are not intruding, we are not transgressing, we are not violating the rights of the non-Muslims,” he said.

In keeping with Muslim tradition, the men and women sat separately in the stadium to hear speakers urging the followers to remain faithful to their cause.
Banners strung across the stadium read:

“Say no to apostasy, don't challenge the position of Islam” and “Together let's prevent apostasy”.

Nasyid and dikir barat groups entertained the crowd, who also heard recitals of the Quran and Islamic poetry.

Selangor executive councillor Datuk Dr Hasan Ali led the crowd in a prayer to close the event at around 6.15pm.

Among others at the event were Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali, former Perlis Menteri  besar Datuk Sri Shahidan Kasim and Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak - Malaysia Confident To Achieve 5-6% Economic Growth

Bernama : RAWANG (Oct 8, 2011): Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today said the government is still confident of achieving an economic growth of between five to six percent this year.

"I say at this moment, this is what we think. Of course, if there is a sharp downturn, then it would be a different story. It will affect the whole world without any exception, " he told reporters at a press conference after a meeting with the people session at the SJK (C) Kundang, here today. 

Najib said at present, the country can still achieve the five to six per cent economic growth due to the strong domestic demand and the restructuring of Malaysia's total trade.
Malaysia trade now with Asean and East Asia represents 46 per cent of its total trade, while with Europe it is about nine per cent and the United States, about 10 percent. 

"Given that sort of economic scenario, we are still confident of achieving five to six per cent growth, especially if government projects are implemented according to schedule," he said.
On the deficit, Najib said: "This year we will achieve 5.4 (per cent of Gross Domestic Product ). Next year, we say, it will go down to 4.7 but the total debt we are monitoring and it should be quite comfortable."

Benjy Fined RM5,000 For Drug Possession

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 17 (Bernama) -- Actor Khaeryll Benjamin Ibrahim or Benjy was fined RM5,000 in default six months' jail by the Magistrate Court here today after he was found guilty of possessing 0.24gm of syabu at his residence last year.

Magistrate Hafizza Sauni made the decision after finding that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt against Benjy, who is the only son of veteran actress Azean Irdawaty.

Benjy, 33, committed the offence at a house, A-6-5 Menara Duta 2, Jalan 1/38B Persimpangan Jalan Segambut here at about 4pm on March 11 last year.

He was charged under Section 12(2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which carries a fine up to RM100,000 or jail term up to five years upon conviction.

Throughout the trial, the prosecution called 14 witnesses and the defence two.

Earlier in mitigation, Benjy's lawyer Amer Hamzah Arshad, asked the court to put his client on good behaviour bond as the accused had no previous conviction and that he was scheduled for surgery tomorrow.

Amer Hamzah also read to the court Benjy's letter to Hafizza.

"My life has turned upside down due to health problems and financial burden of supporting my family. Besides, my mother is suffering from a stage-four breast cancer and she is also depressed by this case," Benjy said in the letter read by Amer Hamzah.

He also read Azean's letter to Hafizza informing about the surgery.

However, deputy public prosecutor Noor Mawarni Abdul Halim asked the court to impose heavy punishment on Benjy as a lesson not only to him, but also to the society. -Bernama

2.2 Million yet to renew driving licence

PUTRAJAYA: As many as 2.2 million out of 11.8 million driving licence holders are inactive or have not renewed their licence, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) received feedback from the motorists that they had difficulty in remembering the expiry date of their licences.

“Even those who had imbedded their driving licences particulars in their MyKad, claimed that they were unable to see their particulars to renew them,” he said.

Kong added that summons would be issued to those caught driving without valid licences, and reminded them that they were not covered by insurance.

“Those who failed to renew their licences for a three year period would have to undergo the driving competency test before they are allowed to renew them,” he said.
Kong added there was one case of a person driving without realising that his driving licence expired three years ago.

“We had also received numerous appeals from persons who had to undergo the competency part of the driving test but we had to reject them,” he said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Kong said the new initiative to renew the driving licences based on the person's date of birth was an effort to provide an effective delivery system to the people.
“We believe this will indirectly reduce the number of inactive driving licence holders,” he said.
Kong said the JPJ has been directed to formulate the systems so that the “renewal on birthdays” proposal could be implemented soon.

“This will take some time but I don't want the driving licence holders to rush to the JPJ offices to renew them immediately,” he said, adding that the renewal would be done after the expiry of the driving licences.

To a question, he said the holders of “P” licence would not be affected as it would be based on their date of birth when they get their licence.

Breasts Surgery Make Ms Tham Mei Leng Suffer .

HER boyfriend wanted her to be slimmer and have bigger breasts and constantly pestered her about it during their five-year relationship.
To please him, 30-year-old clerk Tham Mei Leng, from Pahang, underwent liposuction of her tummy and transferred the fat to her breasts.

Surgery of the Breast: Principles and Art (Two Volume Set)But the procedure by an unlicensed cosmetic surgery company, which cost RM13,100, turned out to be a disaster -- her breasts were infected with pus along and Wong suffered ugly surgical scars and constant itchiness.

On top of that, her boyfriend has dumped her.
Relating her ordeal at the MCA Public Services and Complaints Bureau here yesterday, Tham said a friend had recommended the company to her.

"My breasts became infected because tummy fat is not suitable for breast enlargement and I found this out from a specialist after undergoing the surgery," she said.

"The specialist told me the fat should have been from the thighs and not the tummy. This specialist is now helping me prevent the infection from spreading into my bloodstream."

Atlas of Aesthetic Breast SurgeryTham also said she underwent the cosmetic surgery without any anaesthetics or medicine to relieve the pain.

"I endured the pain during the two-hour surgery by constantly reminding myself that what I was doing would please my boyfriend.

"It was very painful and I could not help crying during the surgery. The infection also causes constant pain and itchiness."

Bureau chief Datuk Michael Chong said the unlicensed cosmetic surgery company was operating at a shoplot in Kuala Lumpur and the surgeon came from southern China.

"Tham's friend had previously undergone liposuction at the same company without complications. Tham thought it would also work for her although she also wanted breasts enlargement.

"We will provide her legal assistance and seek the help of the Health Ministry on possible action against the unlicensed company." Source : TheMalayMail

Sex Videos Anwar Ibrahim deny . Looks like him but. .

IT engineer Lim Ming Leong has not watched the purported sex video of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim but he is convinced it is not the Opposition Leader. He insists that the man in the video is an impersonator.

“I just know,” the self-confessed pro-opposition supporter says matter-of-factly.
Asked if this could also be the case with the controversial Lingam video clip on judicial promotions, Lim's reply is a firm “No.

Lim's stance reflects the general sentiment of pro-opposition supporters who believe Anwar is innocent and has been framed.

On the other end of the spectrum, many pro-government supporters are adamant that the Opposition Leader is the man in the video. “This (different perception) reflects one's political inclination. People will only believe a source they think is credible,” says Ibrahim Suffian of the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research.

Unlike the 2007 Lingam video, which is easily accessible on the Internet, only a few selected media members and politicians were “privileged” to watch the 22-minute sex video at Carcosa Seri Negara on Monday.

In a report, French news agency AFP quoted online news portal journalist Sam Tan as saying: “The people involved showed us the video on a laptop and it appeared to be from a CCTV that showed someone who looks like Anwar having sex with a woman.”

Those who also viewed the video included representatives from Malaysiakini, The Star, New Straits Times, Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, China Press, The Malaysian Insider and Bernama.

Former PKR man and now Kesejahteraan Insan Tanah Air (Kita) president Datuk Zaid Ibrahim feels he is in a better position to form an opinion than many Malaysians who have not seen the video. Zaid, who also says the man resembles Anwar, is calling for an independent international panel of experts to verify the authenticity of the video.

Two Anwar loyalists who have watched the video, Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul and former PKR supreme council member Badrul Hisham Shaharin have, however, dismissed any possibility of the Opposition Leader being the man.

“No way Anwar is the man in the video,” Johari asserts, adding that while the man's face bears a resemblance to Anwar at a glance, his other physical attributes convinced him otherwise.

While Anwar supporters and detractors argue over the man's identity, another hotly debated issue centres on the authenticity of the video and whether it could have been doctored. The black and white CCTV recording was allegedly shot on Feb 21 this year at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur, with scenes shot from four different angles.

Grant Fredericks, an analyst with Forensic Video Solutions in the United States, says effective video manipulation is possible but it takes considerable skill, time, adequate equipment and a lot of money. “It is always possible to alter or manipulate video. Video and film production tools, graphics generators and computer animation tools are built for that purpose,” he tells Sunday Star in an e-mail interview.

“The real question is, can a video be altered to such a degree that manipulation cannot be detected? It is highly unlikely a traditional video recording could be produced that could be manipulated without detection of the alterations,” adds Grant.

A local filmmaker familiar with post-production work concurs, saying that every frame in the video would have to be altered individually for a video to be doctored.

A typical video recording has 25 frames per second (fps). In a 22-minute video, this means a total 33,000 (25fps x 60 x 22mins) frames would have to be altered, assuming the whole video was doctored.

“It would be very expensive, although those with a political motive might not find money to be a problem,” he opines.

He explains that the process of video manipulation can only be done by hand and parameters such as lighting have to be tweaked and changed.

“Shadows change from movement to movement. The surrounding light has to fall naturally on the face and surroundings. If you don't change the lighting, the image will look weird and out of place.

“It also depends on what is being doctored. Are we just replacing the head or the whole body? Or are we adding a belly?”

To doctor a face on somebody else's body, for example, one would need images of the person's face from all angles, he says.

Sunway University deputy vice-chancellor (Research and Higher Degrees) Prof Dr David Ngo says it is difficult to tell if a video recording is fake or has been produced professionally by only watching it. Much also depends on the type of video used, he says.

“If it is an analogue video tape and the video recorder is available, there are techniques to determine if a particular tape was recorded in a particular video recorder,” he adds.
Prof Ngo says if the recording is digital, then one way to find out about fake recording is to blow up individual frames.

“Look for unexpected transitions, variations in colour temperature or inconsistent shadows. Fake areas will show immediately if the recording is poorly formatted,” he explains.
Prof Ngo, who specialises in biometric cryptography, predictive intelligence and aesthetic systems, says a team of experts specialising in the various areas of video enhancement, and audio and video authenticity, would need to study if a recording is authentic.

When asked if Malaysia could produce a fake recording, he says the necessary tools are available off-the-shelf.

Prof Ngo cites tools like Video Edit Magic which can be used to superimpose two videos.
A lecturer in media studies says anything is possible, citing the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, which depicts a scene showing lead actor Tom Hanks meeting former US President John F. Kennedy, as an example.

Originally, the producers shot a video of Hanks with an actor by the name of Jed Gillin. Then, using special computerised effects, the producers switched Gillin's image with an old film footage of Kennedy.

“If you do it well, you can fool a lot of people. But a person with a keen eye can spot something wrong in a matter of seconds. The process costs a lot of money,” says the lecturer who specialises in 3D-video.

CyberSecurity Malaysia's chief executive officer Husin Jazri points out that many Hollywood movies have adopted modification, superimpose and CGI effects.

“We can identify some of them, whether they are doctored or not. However, there are also video works which are very realistic and difficult to tell apart,” he shares.
Husin adds that a layman would have to look out for inconsistencies to detect a doctored video.
“If you look at the video very carefully, you can always detect human errors in a doctored video. You can check for inconsistency in terms of contrast and the brightness of objects found in the video. Or look out for any missing object across the video playback or the sudden addition of an object in a scene,” he says.

Film maker and script writer Syed Azidi Aziz says it important to watch the original video recording and not the copy to identify a fake one.

“The lighting and shadow are the two basic things when determining if a video recording could be fake,” adds Syed Azidi who is more famously known as the blogger Kickdefella.

Another local filmmaker who wishes to be known as Fariq says that while images and audio can be easily doctored, it is next to impossible to do the same for video, especially if it is a continuous stream.

In fact, most filmmakers agree that it would be easier to hire a body double, as is done in Hollywood films.

Fariq explains that the hairstyle, body shape and facial features of the body double would have to be similar to the person being framed.

“As long as it's not a close up shot, the light is dim and the person looks like you, it is possible,” he says.“But it is not easy to get a perfect match. NSTOnline

Yeoh, who returned to her hometown here on Jan 28 to celebrate Chinese New Year, attended the open house hosted by Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir on Thursday.

Accompanying her were her mother Datin Janet Yeoh, relatives and friends.
Yeoh said she had just completed shooting the The Lady - a movie about Myanmar freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi.

The film, she said, is scheduled to be released in August internationally but the release date in Malaysia was not known yet.

Meanwhile, Dr Zambry told reporters at the open house that many Perakians now working in other states are planning to return home as the state’s economy has improved by leaps and bounds.

He said many of them had enquired about the business and job opportunities available as they could see Perak gearing towards a developed state status.

“We will always welcome them back to help develop Perak.

“With more investments coming in, there will be many job opportunities for the people,” he said.

Dr Zambry said foreigners also made enquiries and business proposals.
“I have been invited by investors in Japan, the United States and Germany to see businesses in their home countries.

“They have also said they are keen to set up ventures here,” he added.
On prospects in the Year of the Rabbit, he hoped it would bring further growth and prosperity to the state, adding that his Chinese New Year open house will be an annual event.
