Nothing Good Ever Comes of Hatred

Once ago I wrote in RoketKini, quoting my favourite author, Mitch Albom in his book, Have A Little Faith on how empathy, his rabbi towards an Arabian family in Israel-Palestine has happened in the picture he kept for decades.

He says they are families, but enemies.

This is the beauty paragon of how humane and benevolent are the human being itself, reminiscent us on what GOD portray in the Quran,
“O men! Behold, We have created you all out of a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you might come to know one another, Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is one who is most deeply conscious of Him. Behold, God is all-knowing, all-aware.”  Al-Hujurat 49:13 Love, tenderness and compassion constituted by GOD in every single man born in the world, for the purpose of devouring not just to thyself but also others around them. The love, tenderness, and compassion are a zeal of humanity, of kindness, of empathy, of altruism, of amity.

Humanity is the ans…

Demokrasi Partisipasi di Parlimen Rakyat

Dalam sistem demokrasi berparlimen, yang di dalamnya ada posisi khas buat Yang Dipertuan Agong selaku ketua negara yang bertugas sebagai penyemak dan pengimbang kuasa badan-badan legitimasi yang diiktiraf di bawah Perlembagaan Malaysia, turut di bawahnya ada Parlimen Malaysia, sebagai simbolik paling agung kepada keutuhan nilai demokrasi di negara ini.

Parlimen ini, di ceruk mana pun di dunia ini, pasti setiap orang akan mengenali dan paling tidak, tahu bahawa Parlimen itu adalah tempat kerja kepada wakil-wakil rakyat yang mereka pilih melalui pilihan raya saban 5 tahun yang di sana mereka bertugas untuk memakmurkan negara mereka dengan menggubal segala macam polisi yang pada akhirnya memberi pulangan semula kepada rakyat seluruhnya.

Juga di Malaysia, fungsi asasi itu tiada yang berubah. Bezanya, Parlimen Malaysia saban penggal pembukaannya meriah dengan cerita-cerita pergaduhan ala kanak-kanak merebut gula-gula, hiruk pikuk dengan pertikaman mulut antara wakil-wakil rakyat yang banya…

All Hail Perdana Leadership Foundation Library!

I try to write this promptly. I enamoured, to say the least with the gorgeous Perdana Leadership Foundation Library (Perpustakaan Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana).

It was located in Precinct 8, Putrajaya with an alluring lake view surround it. I never made any comment on any library I went before, except PPAS Shah Alam. However, this Perdana Library is worth my time to put some nice words for them.

I supposed to praise all the great works they did here. I just start discovering Perdana Library and went there almost every day since was about 3 weeks ago. Quite guilt literally, after I realised I have settled at Putrajaya practically nearly 3 years, never heard about this charming place.

My interest here, I am sure some of you know I was kind of book addicted. I love reading, collect books — meant bought it, even though, find it is hard to finish read all of them, and I love to spend my time at the library or bookstore.

For me the sexiest shop lots at KLCC was Kinokuniya because I can read T…

Bersediakah Malaysia Ke Arah Pendemokrasian Maklumat?

Dalam pembentangan Belanjawan 2013 oleh Dato’ Seri Najib, antara perkara menarik ialah kerajaan akan mewujudkan 100 Pusat Internet 1Malaysia di kawasan perumahan rakyat.

Manakala laporan Bernama bertarikh 24 Julai 2013 memetik, sehingga kini kerajaan sudah wujudkan 4,210 Kampung Tanpa Wayar 1Malaysia di seluruh negara menerusi Program Perkhidmatan Penyediaan Sejagat.

Dari dua keratan perkhabaran ini, kita dapat mengagak, Malaysia masih punya nafsu untuk menjadi negara yang subur demokrasinya, kalau tidak sekarang, sudah pasti cita-cita ini untuk Malaysia masa hadapan. Ketika itu, mungkin bukan lagi UMNO yang mengisi ruang-ruang pejabat di Putrajaya.

Penulisan ini tidak bercadang menyentuh isu keberkesanan pelaksanaan projek-projek ini secara langsung, tetapi lebih untuk menarik perbincangan mengenai sejauh manakah komitmen kerajaan ke arah usaha mendemokrasikan maklumat di Malaysia.

Umum memahami konteks maklumat yang disebut di sini adalah merangkumi segala aspek dan sudut maklumat, …

Between Torres and van Persie

I watch a football match between Chelsea and Liverpool at Anfield. I meant, they played at Anfield and I watched on television. The game was nothing special to me since neither teams I was a fan.

I just watched for the sake of a football game, you know, it is for sure a very big game since it was between a contender team for the league title.

In addition, we know, the Manchester City chasing the title too. Therefore, whatever outcome of this game will determine the champion of BPL, at least, for clear prediction. The note before we go further, I was a Manchester United fan so my writing do not favor of any teams here.

I do not want to preach about the game. Yes, it was exciting and the result was unprecedented for Chelsea because many thinks they are underdog comparable to Liverpool. Chelsea won by two goals over Liverpool and this might affect the Liverpool’s dream to crown as champion of BPL after for how long?

Sorry, it is too long for them to not win the title and too long for me …
