Toll Hike for 5 Highways – Who Cares about you, Sucker?

It’s funny how the government could be held ransom by the already fat toll operators making millions of dollars of profit from the lopsided concession agreement. But I supposed it’s not the fault of the current administration namely the outgoing Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and certainly nobody can point their fingers faulting the Works Minister. […]

Why Cut the OPR Rate My Genius? Aren’t we’re Insulated?

I was wondering if some hackers were recruited by the federal government to hack my notebook to either plant some Trojan horses or just to deny my access to the internet – surfing was bloody slow that I could leave my notebook to fetch its pages while I disappeared into kitchen to cook a bowl […]

Ahoy there, Dow is sinking below 7,000-level

U.S. financial crisis is getting worse and it seems the current cycle of recession could stretch deep into 2010. While it was a good sign for traders to short the stock or whack the Put Options when Dow Jones plunged below 8,000-level recently, the global financial systems could experience turmoil many times worse than 1997-1998 […]

UMNO begging QC’s help in London – a Mistake Coup?

Ever since the federal government (or rather UMNO) forcefully taken over one of opposition’s states of Perak the de-factor opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim couldn’t afford to smile as much as he used to be.

Defensive Stocks Screwed – more after F&N & Carlsberg?

One of the readers asked me about Genting Group’s (KLSE: GENTING, stock-code 3182) stock, a company I last wrote in June 2008 and since then I never look back. The stock was on free-fall back then and I presumed nobody dares to catch a falling knife. In fact when the group succeeded in its bidding […]

Perak Government – Now You See It, Now You Don’t

If there’s one thing that keep us all entertained and the Perak Constitutional Crisis still in play, it’s because the Speaker, V Sivakumar, has not been bought yet by the federal government known as BN (Barisan Nasional). And let’s hope this Sivakumar has the balls of steel and stays that way. The Perak state legislative […]

What can Najib do to increase Rating and win Voters?

Public in general is getting sick and tired with the excessive politicking and the stalled economy which is directionless. The writing is on the wall that PM-in-waiting Najib Razak will take over the premiership from outgoing Abdullah Badawi in another month so the former does not have to overly panic but instead rejoice together with […]

Curse the Blogs, blogger to die before new PM sworn in?

Could you imagine what would happen if today is the year 1993 or better still 1988? Both years are important because it was during these periods that Malaysia experienced her biggest Constitutional Crisis. And the mastermind who architected both Constitutional Crisis was none other than the father of Mukhriz Mahathir and its puzzling the son […]

Go get Kedah and Selangor. Then focus on economy, deal?

President Barack Obama has gotten the Congress to pass the $787 billion economic stimulus plan. There’s nothing to shout about because the U.S. economy will take at least another year, if you’re lucky, to see favorable result. Meanwhile over in Malaysia everyone is waiting for the coming second stimulus economic package to excite the sliding […]

RM35 Billion – did you make any money from Gamuda?

By now you are an idiot if you still think the global recession is not real and a confirmed moron to think that the current economy crisis will not affect your country. You can’t pretend to see no evil hear no evil simply just because you’re clueless on how to tackle this problem. It’s alright […]
