Pick up from Patrick Teoh's blog....to heed his call for spreading the monopoly & lucrative business in Malaysia that sucks all the way to the bones.
It's been 3 maybe 4.......maybe 5 days? I don't remember and I have given up counting. But it's been days since I went to that Kedai TM Point at Ampang Point to transfer my phone and Streamyx to a new address. I do remember distinctly the TM pegawai fler's parting words were, "Kalau ada apa apa masaalah uncle panggil la nombor ni...100"
This morning I discovered that I cannot call 100 except from a TM landline! Which of course I don't have because they take at least 9 working days to affect a change of address. And I have yet had no call from the 'contractor' which would have marked the 1st day of the wait. So I am still in limbo as far as my phone line and Streamyx are concerned.
TM must be one of the most inefficient monopolies in Malaysia.
Some weeks ago when the other flers were doing their POTONG ads all over the place, TM came out with their defence. Remember that newspaper ad which showed some guy leaning out of his window with a gadget that looked incredibly like the Potong tool? The tagline in that TM ad was Why go with the unknown? My friend, Kurt came out with the perfect answer......
COS THE KNOWN SUCKS!
Can we make this a viral thing? Send this message to all your friends. Via blogs, facebook, sms, Tweeter, YouTube ..... anything.

Wah ah ah....our DPM actually claimed this in his visit to Sarawak??? Just go and check the amount of laughter he created by claiming fancies-that-only-can-come-out-from-his-stupid-mouth!!!
"Malaysia hoped to share its teaching standard with other countries in the region paving the way for the nation to becoming a centre of education excellence.
........Malaysia’s education system was gaining international attention with the country being recognised as having an effective conventional and religious curriculum by various groups"........Muhyiddin Yassin, education minister and deputy prime minister speaking at a launching ceremony at the Malaysian Teachers Education Institute Tawau campus in Balung.
EAT YOUR LUNG OUT....readers!

Pick from blog zorro-unmasked...find the link in my blog.
Malaysiakini has this story of one Mohammed Fazdil bin Bahari, a pre-operative transsexual known as Fatine, who upon marrying a British man in a civil ceremony, was refused a permanent visa on technical grounds.
Immigration Department director-general Abdul Rahman Othman said that once deported to Malaysia, Fatine could be banned from travelling overseas for at least two years.
"The penalty imposed on Fatine may be more severe than the two-year passport issuance deferment as he has brought great shame upon us," he said.
Instead of being sympathetic with a distraught Malaysian in an immigration tangle, Abdul Rahman played god and maufactured this shame.
Abdul Rahman, you really want to know what SHAME is?
We should be ashamed that:
That 114 cases involving illegal funds transfer were detected from 2006 to 2009.
In March 2008, a wife of a senior minister transferred funds amounting to RM600,000 to Dubai. Between June and August 2008, a 'Tan Sri' transferred 3.5 million pounds sterling (RM22.2 million) to the United Kingdom.
Last week, Bank Negara confirmed that it is investigating Negeri’s MD Mohamad's alleged transfer of RM10 million to London.
Last week billions were siphoned off in Sarawak!
Shouldn't we be ashamed that:
630 Malaysians leave the country everyday!
304,358 Malaysians were reported to have migrated from March 2008 to August 2009.
You not ashamed of:
our shambled judiciary
our mounting crime rates
illegal immigrants galore in our midst
2000 over deaths in custody
There are too many things for us to be ashamed of, I am ashamed of these, are you?
The Bank Bumiputra twin scandals in the early 1980s saw US$1 billion (RM3.2 billion in 2008 ringgit) wasted;
The Maminco attempt to corner the world tin market in the 1980s is believed to have cost some US$500 million (RM1.6 billion);

For the past 10 years since the Philharmonic Orchestra was established, this orchestra has swallowed a total of RM500 million;
OK, that was sometime back, these are recent:
The government has spent a total of RM3.2 billion in teaching Maths and Science in English over the years. Out of the amount, the government paid a whopping RM2.21 billion for the purchase of information and computer technology (ICT) equipment of which the breakdown of costs is unknown;
The commission paid for the purchase of jets and submarines to two private companies, Perimeker Sdn Bhd and IMT Defence Sdn Bhd amounted to RM910 million;

RM4.63 billion 'soft-loan' to PKFZ;
RM2.4 million on indelible ink;
SAMY Velu announced in September 2006 that the government paid compensation amounting to RM38.5 billion to 20 highway companies. A RM380 million windfall for 9 toll concessionaires earned solely from the toll hikes in 2008 alone;

I can continue, but I am too ashamed that the Prime Minister was snubbed in Washington!
