The following words were mentioned in The Star Online (quoting Bernama la):
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said he chose Malaysia as the first country to visit ....... because "Malaysia is a friend, a neighbour and a strong partner in the development of the (drumroll please ....) .......... RACE!!!!!!"
That's right - RACE!!
Yeah Baby Yeah!!
Now I wonder if SBY considers himself and all Javanese, Bataks, Minangs, Bugis and what not "Melayu/Malay/Bumiputra" as per the Malaysian Constitution, Mahathir Definition, Umno definition, or was simply misquoted by our very "dependable" Bernama or even The Star.
If he did, he should probably import UMNO to Java ...... and he can probably at least take the Toyol back, I suppose.
Something like "PI Bala resurfaces .... Bombshell 3"
The link to Free MalaysiaToday which supposedly published it now shows Error 404!!
Even the header and excerpt has disappeared from MT!!!! (I wonder why)
I happened to copy a few words from the article:
"he was taken to see XXX at the Curve in Damansara on July 3 2008 when he was told by the YYY’s architect brother to “follow instructions if he loves his family.”
Hours after that meeting, Bala signed a second statutory declaration which was prepared for him and later issued to the media.
He and his family were then taken by road to Singapore before being flown to Thailand and and Nepal and eventually to India, where he has been hiding since."
The names - "XXX" & "YYY" - has been deleted to avoid naming people in "unverified" news ....
I have no way to verify any of the above - but someone did say thru an anonymous email some time back, that Bala will resurface, and "work is in progress" .... and I believed him, although I never knew him personally!!!
Dedicated to all those who fight for Justice:
When God Wants to Drill a Man
When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him
Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And which every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out-
God knows what He's about.
