Jib 'shaken' at #Japan? Haha. I had my first experience of an earthquake as a 8 or 9 y-o boy living in #Malaysia. I was lying on my bed and suddenly, I felt it was shaking. Then, I got out of my bedroom and saw the glasses in the kitchen knocking each other. Soon, there was a commotion and the flat dwellers scrambled down the stairs.

Young people reap benefits from mega projects, says Najib (But Rosie reap benefits from mega shopping)
Published: 24 May 2015 8:57 PM

Mega projects such as the MRT have created thousands of employment opportunities for young engineers in #Malaysia , said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

He said the MRT would not only transform public transportation in the Klang Valley, but it had also created 2,800 job opportunities for young engineers.

"This is among the government's responsibilities... creating job opportunities, training manpower and bringing back Malaysian talents working abroad," he said at a dinner with Malaysians in #Tokyo  in conjunction with his three-day official visit to #Japan  starting today.

Najib hoped that the Malaysian diaspora in Japan would respond to the government's challenge to develop their talents and return to their homeland to grab the employment opportunities created by the government.

"I want you to prove yourself, that once in Japan you are equal to the Japanese. Learn new technologies."

Also present at the dinner were his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Malaysian ambassador to Japan Datuk Ahmad Izlan Idris, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala and about 260 other Malaysians. – Bernama, May 24, 2015.

Does he still wear the 1Malaysia pin to remind everybody the scandal? Also, he is so Obama. His new economic package on green energy mirrors after Obama's. Those energy firms failed big time. http://dailysignal.com/2012/10/18/president-obamas-taxpayer-backed-green-energy-failures/

Hahahaha. But seriously, 1MDB bosses confirm will attend PAC probe
Published: 25 May 2015 7:56 PM

1Malaysia Development Berhad’s (1MDB) top bosses have denied they are skipping a meeting with a parliamentary probe on the troubled company, saying that they “look forward” to telling their side of the story.

1MDB group executive director and CEO Arul Kanda Kandasamy said he and 1MDB board of directors member Datuk Shahrol Halmi will appear before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), which is investigating the company.

“As confirmed by the PAC chairman, the date for this appearance is currently being finalised, due to a date proposed earlier being in conflict with previously scheduled overseas commitments.

“Both, Arul Kanda and Datuk Shahrol Halmi, look forward to appearing before the committee and having the opportunity to clarify 1MDB's position," Arul Kanda said in a brief statement here.

Today, PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said that both had requested to postpone their attendance at the committee’s hearing tomorrow.

Shahrol was 1MDB's first CEO from February 2009 to March 2013, while Arul Kanda was appointed in January this year.

Both are key witnesses in the PAC's inquiry on Finance Ministry-owned 1MDB, which has incurred RM42 billion in debts in just six years of operation.

The parliamentary bipartisan committee began its own hearings on the matter last Tuesday, after deciding not to wait for an independent probe by the auditor-general to be completed. – May 25, 2015

Priority Purchase For #Sarawak  Government?
23 MAY 2015
http://www.sarawakreport.org/2015/05/priority-purchase-for-sarawak-government/
This sleek black Phantom Rolls Royce is sitting virtually unused in #KualaLumpur .

It was purchased late last year for the use of Sarawak’s new Governor, when he is in town.

There is not much evidence that Taib Mahmud has much use for it, but clearly only one of the world’s most expensive brand new vehicles could match the dignity of Sarawak’s new ‘head of state’ when he visits the capital.

And of course the public should pay for one for his own personal use only.

This Rolls Royce Phantom Saloon, part of their Series II Ghost range launched in 2012, is sold in the UK for at least £365,000, which is around RM2 million.

However, the importation of foreign cars is notoriously highly taxed, as everyone knows, which has bumped the cost of this already fantastically expensive vehicle considerably higher.

Second hand Phantoms in KL  (according to SR’s exhaustive research) appear to leap off the shelves for well over three and a half million ringgit.  And Taib does not buy second hand.

The Ghost car range is promoted under a telling message, designed to appeal to its most likely buyers:

“To drive Ghost is to command. Uncompromising, never ordinary, every detail is precisely engineered to give complete control of the road. But power is nothing without intelligence”

This is how Rolls Royce flatter their clients – and it clearly worked on Taib.

The car is awash with ‘bespoke’ options for choice interiors and its purchase is a clear indication of the Sarawak Government’s priorities at a time when NCR landowners are receiving almost zero ‘dividends’ from the funds they were forced to invest in when their land was requisitioned by the state.

And anyone who has witnessed the hardships of the rural poor or read recent reports on the conditions of local schools will also be tempted to consider what a difference RM3,700,000 million plus might have made to numerous future lives.

This especially at a time when GST has hit the pocket of each and every citizen, particularly the extreme poor.

Might not it have been even more ‘intelligent’ of Taib to have been seen hopping on a bus or using the LRT in such sorry times?

After all, he is evidently sprightly according to his youthful wife.

Apparently not.

The car is kept, according to our sources, at the Yayasan Sarawak branch in KL at Jalan Duta and the foundation also takes responsibility for looking after the car.

It’s a nice gesture of the present Chief Minister, who has been the Chairman of Yayasan since 1999, towards his de facto boss of many years.

On the other hand, since Taib has so many Rolls Royce’s already, perhaps in these straightened economic times Adenan ‘The Reformer’ ought to have told him to use one of those instead?

Poor folk were reported lining up this weekend to describe GST tax as a ‘punishment’ to  them from God’.

They should wake up.  It is a punishment for voting BN, who prefer to spend money on such things rather than the people they are duty bound to serve.
