Yang di-Pertuan Agong Mizan Zainal Abidin – Sultan of Terengganu, Malaysia. See more royal pictures.
Returning home from a birthday celebration at a hotel, a royal family was shocked to find their bungalow in Section 16 here broken into and family belongings worth more than RM2mil missing. Also stolen was a pistol and 62 bullets.
The burglary apparently took place when the family, along with their housekeeper, were away celebrating from 7pm on Tuesday.

Also missing were a special edition collection of currency notes and gold coins issued by Bank Negara, jewellery worth thousands of ringgit, luxury watches and electronic items.

A member of the family celebrating his birthday that day said most of the valuables were taken from a safe inside his room.

“I've been keeping those items for many years,” he said, speaking on the condition that he is not named.

“I am surprised that the safe was not broken into, but actually opened as if someone knew the code number,” he said.

The pensioner said he, five members of his family and the house keeper, returned home around midnight to find the house burgled.

“It was in a mess and three rooms had been ransacked,” he said, when met at his bungalow yesterday.

He said the robbers had gained access by climbing over a back wall and via the kitchen.
While the house is well-equipped with a security and alarm system, the family did not activate it as they were only going to be out for a couple of hours. Even the closed-circuit television camera had no tape.

“According to neighbours, a lorry and three cars were parked outside my house when we were out,” he said.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohammed said no witness had come forward to help in the case so far. Source

No Sympathy for Errant Cabbies

president CAP : S. M. Mohamed Idris
KUALA LUMPUR: Consumers have little or no sympathy for taxi drivers who protested their working conditions and brought traffic in the heart of the city to a standstill.

While conceding that not all taxi drivers were unreasonable, commuters said many of them refused to use the meter and charged exorbitant flat rates while others chose where they were willing to go and by which route.

They were responding to the action of about 100 taxi drivers who gathered in Jalan Bukit Bintang from 3pm to 7pm on Tuesday to voice their grievances, including the introduction of the free GO-KL buses which they said affected their business.

They also complained of being harassed by SPAD, the Land Public Transport Commission, which they said restricted parking and pick-up areas.

Detractors of the taxi drivers are not confined to locals. At least two international websites have nothing good to say about them. rank Kuala Lumpur taxi drivers as the worst in the world. Another,, put KL as number three after Phnom Penh and Jakarta.

On the local scene, designer Chandra Shegar, 39, who has been relying on public transport for the past 15 years, said many taxi drivers refused to take passengers to certain places.

“Sometimes I would want to go to KL from PJ, but the driver refuses, forcing me to wait for another cab. This never happens in countries like Singapore, where drivers are not allowed to refuse a passenger.

“Others refuse to use the meter. It usually costs me RM10 to RM15 to get from The Curve in Mutiara Damansara to my home in SS1 but some taxi drivers insist on charging a flat rate of RM30 or more,” he said.

He, however, noted that there were taxi drivers who didn't flout the rules.
“Having taken taxis for so long, there are some drivers whom I am familiar with and they are actually very nice. Sometimes, they even offer discounts,” he said.
Public relations accounts director Michele Malini Mahendra, 36, has a regular taxi driver who picks her from her home in Putra Heights to her office in Petaling Jaya.

“I used to have really bad experiences with taxis. I used to stay in Kota Kemuning (in Shah Alam) and when I called for a cab, the driver would insist on RM10 on top of the metered fare,” she added.

In GEORGE TOWN, Consumers Association of Penang president S. M. Mohamed Idris said CAP had been trying for 30 years to get cabbies to use the meter “but it has all been in vain”.
He said the taxi drivers also refused to cruise around looking for customers and instead only waited at certain areas to pick up foreigners, who they thought could be fleeced.

Idris said SPAD had promised to conduct a study on the problem of cabbies taking longer routes and refusing to use the meter.

Penang Consumer Protection Association president K. Koris said: ”Cabbies unhappy with the meter rates should discuss the matter with the Government, not take it out on consumers.”

In recent months, cabbies in Penang have come under heavy fire from visitors, many of whom had written to The Star.

American March Sullivan said taxi drivers already had tyre subsidy, personal accident insurance and were eligible for individual permits to improve their livelihood and, therefore, should be made to use the meter.

Julian Wilford from Rickmansworth in Britain said Penang cabbies who charged “arbitrary rates” made Malaysia look like a backward, Third World nation. Source : The Star

Saying ‘I do’ Gangnam style

PETALING JAYA: One man proved that no act is too extravagant if it's for his sweetheart when he orchestrated an elaborate K-pop-themed flash mob wedding proposal.

Joshua Wong Yin Ai boogied with 33 of his closest friends to a medley that included songs like Lovey Dovey by T-ara, Gangnam Style by Psy, Fantastic Baby by Big Bang and 1,2,3,4 by the Plain White T's before popping the question to Nancy Lim outside Laundry Bar at the Curve on Wednesday.


Through blushes and laughter, she accepted his proposal.
Wong said he planned the romantic stunt over three weeks after his initial idea of proposing to her via a giant billboard across her office window failed due to logistics. 
“I wanted to give her something grand and special; after many suggestions I decided on the flash mob proposal,” said Wong, adding that he chose the K-pop theme as they both enjoyed the genre.
  The 27-year-old assistant manager said he had to videotape the choreography and upload it onto the Internet for his friends to practise on their own.

“Many of us couldn't meet up all together because we were working,” he said.
“I was so nervous as we only had two rehearsals together.”
The hard work paid off as Lim, 29, was caught totally by surprise as she was about to leave the shopping complex after work.

“There are no words to describe how I am feeling right now. There are none,” Lim gushed.
She added that she had received a torrent of gifts from Wong earlier yesterday as it was their third-year “anniversary”.

Namewee Vs Chong Wei Controversy

"Nasi Lemak 2.0" director Namewee revealed that his latest music clip posted on YouTube recently was just a way to get Malaysia's national badminton star, Dato' Lee Chong Wei, to attend the gala premiere of his second directorial feature, "Hantu Gangster". 
After watching Lee's unsuccessful attempts to net Malaysia their first gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics in his match against Lin Dan from China, Namewee expressed his condolences to the former world champion by dedicating a song to him on the social video site. However, the clip turned controversial when it sparked criticisms among local and Chinese fans about Namewee's support for Lee, claiming that he was going about it in a wrong way by attacking Lin Dan with much too harsh words in the lyrics.

When asked for his side of the story, the "Hantu Gangster" director explained, "As a huge badminton fan, I was just expressing my opinions and disappointment on Dato' Lee's loss in the finals. I did not create the video to promote my new movie with Lee's name. I heard that he went to support "Nasi Lemak 2.0" last year, so this year I wanted to invite him to watch "Hantu Gangster", as I hoped that my movie could cheer him up after losing in such a tight battle. We had called him previously, but I wanted my invitation to be special, so I made the video, but as it turned out, he could not make it to the gala premiere due to his busy schedule."

Nevertheless, the Muar-born filmmaker, who generated a buzz among fans with pictures and videos showing him injured on his Facebook account, once again attracted public attention when he showed up at the gala premiere of "Hantu Gangster" in hospital garments with cuts and bruises on his face. He even walked the red carpet using a pair of crutches.
"Those pictures and videos were part of my promotional activities for my new movie. We designed the gimmicks based on my character's story in "Hantu Gangster", not on shock value. You will understand when you watch the film," replied Namewee, when some remarked that he resorted to cheap stunts to obtain publicity for himself.

Through his film, the controversial filmmaker aimed to promote unity among Malaysians, as it boasts a multi-racial cast, which includes Farid Kamil, Diana Danielle, Amber Chia, Dato' Amurugam and Dennis Lau.

"I want to tell everyone that racial discrimination is not created by the people. There is no problem living together with different races. I hope the movie can lead you to see the truth behind some of the society issues that is happening in our country."
"Hantu Gangster" is now showing in cinemas!

Govt Restructuring Subsidies

Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin. Read his biography here
The Finance Ministry is studying a restructuring of all forms of subsidies, especially oil and gas, to ensure they benefit target groups and help reduce the burden of low-income earners.
Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said he welcomed suggestions on the matter from any quarters, to be included for the tabling of Budget 2013.

He told this to reporters after meeting residents of Kampung Perupuk here Sunday.

Awang Adek was responding to a suggestion by Umno Youth for the Government to restructure the subsidies given to the people so that they could be channelled directly to the target groups.

According to Umno Youth leader Khairy Jamaludin, subsidies for oil and gas were found to benefit the high-income earners more.

The matter has been raised by many quarters but none have submitted a comprehensive delivery system that could meet the target, said Awang Adek, who is also Kelantan Umno deputy liaison chief.

BN is Not Racist

The Barisan Nasional (BN) does not practise racism as claimed by the opposition parties although the coalition is made up of race-based parties. 

Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir (see his biography ) or (see his speech) said although there were parties within the BN that were set up based on race, this did not mean that the party was racial. 

"All this while, the opposition had always portrayed the BN as a race-based party," he told reporters after participating in the forum titled "Voices: Emerging Malaysian Leaders", here last night. 

Zambry was among the four panel members participating in the forum organised by the consultant firm,KRA Group. 

The three other panelists were Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Gan Ping Siew and Senator V. Subramaniam. 

At the forum attended by about 200 people comprising academicians and corporate figures, various political issues in Malaysia were discussed including the opposition claim that BN practised racialism. 

Zambry said that the opposition parties such as the DAP were the ones practising racialism. 

"Despite the opposition claim that we purportedly adopt racial politics, we notice that the DAP history shows the party (DAP) contests in areas where the Chinese form the majority," he said. 

He said that if the DAP was truly a party for all races, why did the party not field its candidates in Malay-majority constituencies in the general election. 

Earlier, Zambry held a meeting with Singapore investors and they had expressed interest to invest in Perak particularly in real estate and mining. TheSundayDaily

Ramasany, Nga to face DAP disciplinary committee


Nga Kor Ming

Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy and Perak DAP secretary Nga Kor Ming are to face the DAP disciplinary committee on Thursday over separate issues. 

The committee's chairman, Tan Kok Wai, said the committee will look into the complaints lodged against Ramasamy over various breaches of discipline and the allegation that Nga abused his powers as a state executive councillor during the administration of the PKR-DAP-PAS opposition pact in Perak. 

"The committee will meet on Thursday at 4 pm to look into these," he told Bernama when contacted. 

Four complaints have been lodged against Ramasamy while one complaint has been brought by the party's Greenwood branch in Ipoh against Nga. 

Ramasamy was involved in war of words recently with DAP chairman Karpal Singh, which resulted in a gag order being imposed and the party's top leadership forming a three-man panel to resolve the issue. 

The high-powered panel -- comprising DAP lifelong advisor Dr Chen Man Hin, DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng -- announced that the "godfather-warlord" spat was over. 

However, at a press conference held at his office in Penang today, Karpal Singh called for a meeting of the disciplinary committee soon to decide on the complaints lodged against Ramasamy. 

In response to the call, Tan said the disciplinary committee had actually set Thursday to discuss the matter as its members were busy with the Chinese New Year "open house" events over the past few weeks. 

"I hope the party members will not go to the media to highlight the party's disciplinary matters. He (Karpal Singh) can always call me to check when we are going to meet," he said. 

Tan also said that besides the Ramasamy and Nga issues, the disciplinary committee would also probe a demonstration by a group of party members against Johor DAP chief Dr Boo Cheng Hau in Muar, Johor, in December last year. 

The group was reportedly unhappy with Boo who, it claimed, had planned to field his own candidate to contest the Bentayan state seat in Johor in the next general election.
