Silent Riot - Rusuhan Tersembunyi (History Sabah)

A great video by Nadira Ilana regarding the 1986 Riot. It give the details on how the riot happened, what caused it and who was behind it. This video maybe has given a clue of how some of the illegal immigrant entered Sabah. This was the darkest day of Sabah after independent. 

I was 6 years old that time, and was in Kindergarten school at St. Francis Convent, Kindergarten. According to my mother, because of this event, my grandmother was very scared and have ask my mum, not to send me to KK school anymore, because she feared things like this could happen again. As a result, i further my primary education at Penampang until i completed my secondary education.

This will remain part of Sabah history. Please share to all Sabahan.

Kalau kamu cakap tempat lain bahaya, you never come to Sabah. Walaupun this has been  26 years, the memory still lies in people's mind, including me...

God Bless Sabah!

Guessing Game: Malaysia's 13th General Election

Since 2011, byk sudah kana cakap pasal ni. GE13 or PRU13. Everybody was talking about this, be it at the coffee shop, offices, home, and almost everywhere. Sekarang lagi la. Di mana2 saja jumpa pasti akan cakap pasal nie. Most story sia dangar, misti pasal politik, misti pasal pilihanraya. Dia nda kira kaum, agama, umur (yg qualified mengundila) smua pun membicarakan bila tarikh PRU 13. Kalau nda silap, last PRU was held on March 2008. Kalau ikut perlembagaan Malaysia, 1 Term is equivalent to 5 years. Kalau ikut lagi, bulan 3 ni genapla 5 Tahun the current govt bearing office. As far as i know, the parliament akan terbubar secara otomatik apabila itu term sudah habis. So mo tidak mo, the GENERAL ELECTION WILL BE HELD tahun ini juga, 2013.

As said before, since 2011, ramai sudah yang bercerita pasal ni election. Sia tinguk smua parti politik pun all geared up. Derang ready since 2011 lai, since drg jangka yg the election will be held on 2012. Tapi nda juga. Dunno why nda jadi. Maybe ada beberapa isu yg menyebabkan election nda jadi time tu. Sepanjang 2012, there a lot of events unfold and some of it might be the 'key' to Malaysia next General Election. What it is, i guess everybody would have knew about it, so no need for me to say more.

Normal question is being asked by friends around Sabah. "Who will you vote?" Well i cant say at the moment. If the last election i am FIRM with my votes, this time around i am more a fence-sitter. As said before, a lot of events unfold in 2012 with some of it will be the keys for this coming GE. So to answer the question of who will i vote, i will have to say "tunggu dan lihat". I'm taking that approach so that i can evaluate ALL parties move before i made the next move. Some might say that mine is only one vote, and would not make much different in the voting process. My answer is simple. Although i am not as important as many out there, my one vote will be very crucial for all party. My one vote will become a key vote, if there is a draw, tapi mungkin nda la.. Hehehe. But i still say my votes is important as other's.

So, who will we votes will depend on many factors. I can only say that our vote will be very crucial. Thank you

Problems on New MyVi Steering

On Thursday, my friend inform me about a news from the mainstream TV. Since nowadays, i rarely watch news at mainstream TV (because of too much politics) i don't know about the news. It was inform that all the new MyVi will have to go for a 'special' service to replace a problematic EPS (Electronic Power Steering).

Following is the official press release from Perodua regarding the practise. This press release is copied from Perodua Official Web site (

Perodua initiates Preventive Measure Campaign for New Myvi

Rawang, 16 Jan: Perodua is initiating a Preventive Measure Campaign call for its 74,000 New Myvi variants produced between March 2011 and March 2012 to replace the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) column of the model.
The exercise is to ensure that owners of the New Myvi enjoy optimum performance of their vehicle.
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our customers but this campaign is necessary as the car’s performance may not be at its best and could partially compromise the driver’s response time at low speeds,” Perodua Managing Director, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.
He said that based on studies conducted by Perodua, the problem could be detected when the EPS indicator is alight, after which, the driver could feel a slight heaviness at speeds of between 30km/h and 40km/h.

This can be temporarily fixed by switching off the engine and restarting the car.
“However, for a permanent fix and to eliminate any possibility of risk to our customers, we kindly request that an appointment to be made at any of our 170 service centres nationwide for the replacement of the EPS column,” He added.
The car company has already issued notification letters to the affected customers.
Aminar said that after making an appointment at the most convenient service centre, a customer will be given a briefing on the replacement of the EPS column. The exercise will take approximately 80 minutes.
“Perodua will absorb all costs for the replacement of the EPS column; in addition, priority will be given to those affected because here at Perodua, You Matter Most,” he said.
“The campaign time frame is open ended; that being said we encourage our customers to make their appointments as soon as it is convenient for them to ensure that the replacement can be done orderly and smoothly,” Aminar said.

As a one of the many user of the new MyVi, initially i did not notice any problem until one day last year i was driving i notice sounds coming from the steering every time i make a turns. Sometime i also notice my steering became a bit lighter on turn. When i saw this press release by Perodua,  i did not see any mention of what the variant of the new MyVi. It could be The New Myvi, Elegence, SE or Extreme (1.5). I dont know whether this problem is connected with the recent press release.

Being advised by friends to go and check at Perodua Centre, just in case. Will wait for my niece to get back to work before she can confirm whether my car is included or not. Untuk keselamatan, mo juga pigi check lah...

Sia harap ndada apa2 yg serius berlaku, sebab sia tau ini ialah perhimpunan aman. Rakyat mau menyuarakan permintaan derang. Derang mo kasi tau apa yang derang rasa sama kerajaan.

Sia harap rakyat Malaysia selamat disana. Doa dari sia menemani kamu semua!

Fabian William - Id Pagandadan

Au po natagak ih kalangadanku,
Sundung no baino au kito mi'iso,
Id tinipiku okito ku ika,
Mamanau sumoborong tumongkiad...
Gisom no daa do baino,
Au po nokosimban,
Tupus om langad hiti ginawoku,
Sokiro daa gumuli,
Tadau di nawayaan,
Au ku daa tumongkiad dika...

Pinologos ku ika minibok,
Miampai suang ginawoku mandad,
Nung insan tadau koguli ko kawagu,
Kada oku pologoso magandad id kotuongon,
Guli no om babango koposionku,
Insan poh...

Powoyoon kud tongus,
Pason langad ku id dika,
Simbaro oku maya,
Dilo rasam....

Au po natagak ie kalangadanku,
Sundung no baino au kito mi'iso,
Nga guli no
Nga guli no..
