Streamyx down for 3 days

Streamyx down in Penang for more than 48 hours

As far as I know Gelugor (my area) and Air Itam area are affected, could be more.
Streamyx technicians are conveniently unavailable as 013 line is also down!

I am now using Celcom Broadband prepaid but the speed is even worse than Streamyx. Maybe it could be due to Celcom nationwide network problem, not sure.
Internet is at a crawling pace here in Penang now.

Received a call from TM support in KL(?) saying they are still working on it. Anybody knows what the problem is?

UMNO's BN set to sail off to the sunset

UMNO to see its doom soon

"It is strange to find that Malaysia has been outstripped by its neighbours. It is no longer the leading nation in the region. Certainly it is no longer regarded as a model."

"The Liberal Democratic Party of Japan which had ruled the country since World War II has been trounced by the Democratic Party of Japan in the recent election."

"This follows the trend which many political parties which had struggled and achieved independence had undergone. The Mashumi Party of Indonesia, the Muslim League of Pakistan, the parties which wrested independence for numerous African countries have all but disappeared."

"The only thing that would save the BN is the lack-luster performance of the opposition. The alternative is not a real alternative. But if the performance of the BN Government and parties fails to gain confidence, the frustrated voters might just do what the Japanese voters did - dump the party they had supported for more than half a century."

- Lim Kit Siang?? No, its Dr M

Pakatan: Please read this article and let's not dissapoint Dr M, ok?

On another note: Will Khir Toyo be sacrificed for the Bagan Pinang by-election? (the wayang has started!)


Penang is now a registered trademark

You now have to ask permission to use the word "Penang"!

Penang is now a registered trademark own by the state government. Those wanting to use the word “Penang” for functions, events, publications and other purposes must first get permission from the state government, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said yesterday.

I suppose this is a good branding strategy for Penang and I hope the state government make good use of it.

What comes to mind after Penang?? Food, of course!

Residents threaten Pakatan Mentri Besar

This is what happens when the BN's Home Minister condones extremist actions


It happened because we allowed it to happen. Those bigoted thugs did what they did because we did not stamp down on the racists among us hard.

We allowed racist politicians to spout their garbage about “immigrant races”; we allowed them to tell our brothers and sisters to “go back to where you belong”; we allowed them to wave weapons of war; and we allowed them to ask for the weapons to be bathed in blood.

It’s too late for any politician to condemn something now when all the other acts of bigotry that have been brewing in the past few years were not even protested against because they suited their political needs.

:Unquote - Azmi Shahrom

JR: And all this happening on bulan puasa!

Anyway, our government reacted in a very predictable manner - shoot the cow carrying the milk!

Najib: It is ok as long as the people are not protesting against us

Sloone: BN giving us more ammo to get rid of them by the next election

Khoo Kay Peng: The Goons in BN are thriving

Haris Ibrahim: MCMC wants video removed as the perpetrators could be linked back to Hishammudin

Malaysian Consultative Council: 1Malaysia, but 2 set of rules

UMNO continues to stoke racial tension

UMNO's Hishammuddin defends action of extremists parading decapitated cow-head

This is so sad and disgusting that I don't what to say - so I will just let Tony Pua do the talking

Read Tony's article here

Kit: Hishamuddin is wielding his keris again

Th Star: Hishammudin denies he is an extremist
"...the residents seemed to have some grounds for their displeasure"

JR: How pathetic can you get? We wonder what would be Hishammudin's response if it were the Indians parading something in front of a mosque

Forbes: Malaysian police stood by as protestors did their despicable act

Hindraf: Only Malays can protest in Malaysia

More: Who is the "dalang" behind this despicable act (in Malay, but I am sure you would have guessed the answer by now)
