AES System

I came across an opinion from a fellow blogger on the AES System that the government implemented a while a go.
I fully concur with his opinion and regardless what other people say over the AES, i still agreed on the implemented as in the long run it will help to educate drivers & lawbreakers to abide by the rules and respect them.
This will reduce significant road accidents which the main factors come from speed & human error.

Please don't politicize the issue, it is actually good system. In my honest opinion, only law-breaker are against this system. If you follow the law, for sure you will not be penalized.  as easy as that.

Let us ponder on his opinion, which he did not left any name:-
Anonymous said...

There has been a lot of fuss on the newly implemented Automated Enforcement System (AES) over the media since the past few days, with politicians from the Opposition picking up on this issue and turning it into a political circus.

Why are we so hard-pressed on defending traffic offenders? Don’t we use the road every day and realize how annoying and sometimes dangerous these reckless law-breakers are?

Speeding, breaking of red lights, queue jumping, overtaking on double lines as well as those who enter restricted roads during peak hours; these are daily occurrences in our traffic experience.

Why should we be worried or afraid if we are all law-abiding citizens?

Are we simply a nation of reckless drivers when we are voicing our dissatisfaction over a new system that could ensure road safety for all of us?

First of all, the AES has been implemented all over the world especially in developed countries such as France, Germany, Australia, Singapore and the United States. There are 90 countries from around the world that have implemented similar electronic systems, and the results have been more than satisfactory.

Take France for an example, the number of deaths on the road have dropped by 27 per cent within just three years of implementation. In Kuwait, the rate of traffic accidents has reduced by 48 per cent while in Germany, 80 per cent of road users are complying to traffic laws in the designated AES locations.

Since its first phase implementation in our country on Sept 23 this year, the 14 cameras that had been installed at the blackspot locations in Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya reportedly captured a total of 63,558 traffic offences within the first eight days.

This figure should serve as a reminder for all of us to obey traffic laws, not to concoct some sort of vilified argument that the government and its cronies are robbing us! And guess what, the number of drivers caught for traffic violation fell by more than half in the past week. Road users are now more careful and are complying with traffic laws because they do not want to get caught red-handed on 11MP high resolution cameras that could not only capture still images but video footages as well by the roadsides.

How could this be a bad thing for the people of Malaysia?

We need to be reminded of the purpose and advantages of the system in the first place.

The AES carries a variety of advantages, other than the prime objective of ensuring the safety of all road users. Let us be reminded again that the AES is not a system of hidden cameras where policemen hide in bushes along the highway.
Warning signboards are placed near the designated locations to remind us that we should obey the law. Photographs of vehicles and license plate number of the offenders are reviewed at the AES control centre and will be passed on to JPJ for the issuance of a fine or summons.

Here is the baffling part. The summons issued are real-time evidence based, they help to reduce human interference in the issuance of summons, which is another way of saying we could reduce or eradicate bribery. Isn’t that what Malaysia wants? We condemn corruption and bribery 24/7 and now, all the sudden, we are against a system that could stop it? We are against bribery but it is okay to break traffic laws?

Another great aspect of the AES is that it helps to decrease the number of personnel currently conducting the tasks manually, i.e. the policemen hiding in bushes. They could be remobilized to provide more value-added service such as easing traffic congestion around the city. As much as you hate being secretly monitored while driving, do you think these policemen love to hide in bushes? They have other work too.

The AES increases the effectiveness of traffic enforcement through a system that works around the clock -- in rain or shine. It does not discriminate under any circumstances, as there are no direct personal interaction between traffic offenders and the system, nor does it discriminate between private, commercial or public vehicles.

The AES also aims to increase the POBC (Perception of Being Caught) rate among Malaysian road users thereby reducing the rate of accidents. Normally, the POBC rate among Malaysian road users is 25 percent on regular days and 50 per cent during festive seasons where road safety campaigns such as Ops Sikap are being implemented.

In developed countries where road users are more disciplined and knowledgeable, the POBC rate is between 80-90 per cent. We still have a long way to go, but what we are in the right direction. Let us see what happens when more cameras are installed at all the 817 blackspots all over the country.

Certain people are calling the AES “highway robbery” and some even went further by demanding to change the name to “Saman 1-Malaysia.” Penang Chief Minister cited it as a tool to milk the rakyat for maximum profits rather than to serve as deterrent to traffic offenders.

A business is still a business and these companies need to make money at some point, needn’t they? According to the Transport Ministry, the government did not fork out a single sen for AES and these companies will bear all the cost. If this is true, then they have to obtain loans from financial institutions to purchase the AES cameras and the technology, and like any other business, these concessionaires are anticipating returns from their investment.

Nobody made a fuss when MyeG Berhad charges a small administrative fee to process online applications such as traffic summons and road tax renewal, then how come the public is angry with the government and the two companies when they are working around the same business model?

There shouldn’t be any fuss over AES should we aspire to become a civilized, cultured and matured society. We cross our fingers in optimism that in the longer run, the AES will be effective in reducing fatal road accidents, as proven in many other countries around the world. There are approximately 20 million registered vehicles in the country and the number of traffic accidents and deaths are growing each year. Sure, the issuance of summons does not stop irresponsible drivers from making our roads a living nightmare for all of us, but we should start somewhere, shouldn’t we?

This is why our football quality will never improve.


International spotlight

MORE than just Terengganu's reputation is at stake with the recent sacking of head coach Peter Butler.
     Malaysian football is now under scrutiny as news about the way the Englishman's contract was terminated by the Terengganu FA circulated on the international  scene.

    Butler, who used to play for West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League, said his sudden removal as Terengganu head coach made the news not only in England but also in other countries.
    "My controversial dismissal from the team was among the topics discussed on UK's television and radio talk shows," Butler disclosed yesterday.
    "It has been awhile since I was in the news back home but now my stories can be found in the Guardian, Independent and a few other newspapers."
The 46-year-old coach, who was  in Kuala Lumpur yesterday to deliver  a copy of his appeal letter to the FA of Malaysia, said many people were  curious as to why the players cannot be disciplined by their coaches. (READ MORE AT SOURCE)

azred : Shame on the Terengganu FA, when will ever Malaysia football restore its glory as the in the 90th? How can we improve if the discipline among the player are at worst and the coach was been fired for trying to get things done? Oh man.. come on guys be mature already.

Tax : IRB cannot take legal action?


PUTRAJAYA: THE Inland Revenue Board is not empowered to take legal action against those who fail to pay their income tax or commit other offences under the Income Tax Act 1967.
The Court of Appeal ruled that if the board did so, without first obtaining permission from the public prosecutor, it would be null and void.
A three-man bench, led by Datuk Abu Samah Noordin, made the landmark ruling in allowing an appeal by siblings Khaw Siang Hee, Siang Siang, Siang Leng and their mother, Lim Yok Lui @Lim Gek Looi, who were charged in a Penang magistrate's court for failing to declare their combined income amounting to RM700,000 for years of assessment 2003 and 2004.
The unanimous ruling, delivered on Thursday, would be a precedent as the decision of the Court of Appeal was final.
The four, who were represented by S. Vijaya Retnam, had appealed against the decision of judicial comissioner Mohd Amin Firdaus Abdullah, who heard the case by way of revision in November 2010.
A magistrate's court had, on October 2010, granted the four a discharge not amounting to acquittal as the board had not obtained sanction from the public prosecutor to institute action.
Vijaya Retnam had told the Court of Appeal that under Article 145 (3) of the Federal Constitution, only the public prosecutor had the power to institute, conduct and discontinue any criminal proceeding.
He said the board did not have any power of the public prosecutor.
"Thus, their action is unconstitutional, and null and void."
He added that the sanction of the public prosecutor must be obtained to institute criminal action under the Income Tax Act.
Vijaya Retnam, a former board employee before he became a lawyer, said all revenue counsel currently serving in the board were not gazetted deputy public prosecutors following the corporatisation of the board in 1995.
"They are merely counsel who are directly employed by the board after corporatisation," he said.
The lawyer said the offence for failing to declare one's income was punishable by imprisonment of a maximum of three years and treble the amount of tax evaded, plus a special penalty of RM20,000.
He said it was a serious offence and the investigation papers should have been perused by the public prosecutor.
Vijaya Retnam said unlike the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or the Customs Department, the board did not have the authority to prosecute


Azred : quoted from NST (30.6.2012) said that the Appeal Court says revenue counsel are not empowered to act against those who fail to pay income tax. This mean IRB cannot charge the taxpayer to court by its Legal Department.

However, they still can send compound letter and Notices or Summons to the tax payer, unless IRB obtained concrete evidence, they still can take legal action but through Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) just like police case. They only have the power to investigate, then handover to DPP for legal action.

During the past, legal action was taken by IRB legal department and actually it is a wrong procedure.

For the case above, in my opinion, although the case have been thrown aside by C.O.A. The IRB can still charge the defendant against by way of DPP. the defendant maybe happy that they won the appeal but i'm sure the IRB will submit to DPP for recovering the lost revenue.

enough said, do pay your tax. it is your obligations towards Malaysia.

Hooligan Lawyer assault client (lawyer named Tan Hui Chuan or H.C.Tan) [...



a recent video showing a lawyer losing its temper with one client over the signage of document. this is the comment from the person itself taken from youtube.

"Lawyer forced client (myself) to sign paper-documents without letting client to read the content, client refuse to sign without being able to verify the documents. The lawyer impatiently shout at client face then straight away charging himself towards client and kicked client like a boxing sand-bag, after that he has repeatedly pushing the client's shoulder. 

He even challenge myself to lodge a complain against him in Bar Council, he claimed he have a reputation everywhere within Malaysia.

I have been told by a reliable source this hooligan lawyer is ranked No. 5 Court Case Lawyer in Malaysia (with such attitude I really cannot believe it, maybe he is bluffing), from the same source also i got to know he normally helps Datuk/Datin/Ministers for court case proceedings.
** THIS IS A FORCED PANEL LAWYER FIRM FROM RHB LOAN, IF NOT I WILL USE THIS LOUSY LAWYER FIRM **"



a thing started when the rushing lawyer want the client to sign some acknowledgment but he insist to read first which the lawyer said to come to the office because he is very busy.

what i can say is the client was really annoying, even for me that watch the video for few minute get annoyed by the specky guy. come on la. be reasonable. i know the document was only acknowledgement letter because the lawyer is not the S&P lawyer, he is a loan lawyer. don;t la be to annoyed, don't la tunjuk terrer sgt.. want to read line by line. and then some more question ppl and call ppl hooligan. what right you have to do that? of course the lawyer get annoyed and further more he is rushing. it is good that the lawyer give you chance to verify the conditions of the house. last time when i bought my house the loan lawyer doesn't even see me. i only deal with his assistant. 

and as for the lawyer i really pity you. i know that you are really mad because specky calling you names. but you should be cool and act professionally. i know there is a lot of annoying ppl out there. and we as professional have to learn how to handle this kind of ppl. when you start using physical to vent your frustration that have become your downfall. you are at the wrong end over there my friend. 

what the lawyer should do if he really feel cannot tahan with that specky is ask his assistant to see the matter through and leave the place at once. just excuse yourself and say that your assistant will assist you in this matter. talk nicely. and the specky will not have another against you. 

as for the conclusion, both parties are wrong in this case. annoying specky+temper lawyer=flying kick. haha
but the lawyer will get into the hot water for physical assault what ever reason he have..

read this article from the star

Lawyer who hit client claims self-defence


self-defence my ass.. haha that specky use sword arr??? come la admit that you lose your temper with that annoying kid.

so lesson to be learn Manage Your Anger & Don't Be Like That Annoying Specky.

Now everyone can sue Air Asia

YB WEE CHOO KEONG SAYS IN HIS BLOG HERE


On 13-6-2012, the Consumer Tribunal in Putrajaya has made a landmark decision involving a case of flight delay by AirAsia.  It has set a new legal precedent that all passengers of AirAsia has new found legal right: “NOW EVERYONE CAN SUE & BE COMPENSATED for all costs incurred directly fromflight delay i.e. cost of food, taxi fares, hotel accommodation and others
The Consumer Tribunal was set up by YB Minister of Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism and the procedures are made very simple for consumers. Claimant is not allowed to employ lawyer to act for them in the Consumer Tribunal. The filing fees is only RM5. If anyone is interested to exercise your rights when faced with unfair contract terms where you are put in a position of inequality of bargaining power or where you had no choice but to enter into the contract containing unfair terms, please file a case in the Consumer Tribunal which has been set up throughout the country.

azred : we have the rights and we can act accordingly

Dr M fear


1) Lim Kit Siang is reported to have said that I am working hard to ensure the Opposition will not win because I am afraid when the Opposition Government is in place, it will act against all my “misdeeds” when I was Prime Minister.
2) No doubt he is inspired by what happened to Gadaffi and Mubarak. He would love to see me dragged to the courts and sentenced to death or to at least a life sentence. Maybe like Gadaffi I would be murdered.
3) He is right. I am afraid. I am afraid of the kind of abuse of power that has already been shown by one of Pakatan’s great leader who got a senior police officer to frighten Dr Ristina and Ummi Hafilda into withdrawing Ummi’s letter to me.
4) I am afraid of the fabrication of charges so as to put me behind bars. That I am innocent would be irrelevant. What is important is Kit Siang’s satisfaction at seeing me behind bars and more.
5) Other than this I am not afraid. I had always been careful not to abuse the power I had as PM because I was mindful of having to step down and lose power at some stage. If I had abused power my detractors would gleefully expose me and strive to put me behind bars.
6) In fact this has been tried.
7) Since retiring I have been questioned by the police and the AG’s office several times. I was also made to appear before a tribunal to be questioned by all and sundry, including representatives of the Bar Council.
8) So far nothing could be pinned on me.
9) The anti-corruption people can even now investigate whether I have ever received illegal gratifications, whether I have detained or thrown people into jail for personal reasons, whether I benefitted personally from any of the projects carried out during my time.
10) I have not taken anything that is not mine. In fact all gifts given to me, many very valuable, have been given to the Government including a score of expensive cars. They can be seen in Langkawi or at the old PM’s house in KL. I must admit that I ate some of the fruits given me to prevent them from going bad.
11) I had not allowed my children to do business with the Government or to be candidates in elections though they have been offered several times when I was PM and President of Umno. Only after I stepped down did I allow Mukhriz to contest.
12) Whatever money I now have is from savings during 29 years in the Government. My salaries were not big. But the Government took care of my housing, water and electricity, my travels. I don’t even spend much on food as I get invitations to functions like weddings etc.
13) I was therefore able to save my pay and allowances.
14) Except for Mirzan, my children did not get any scholarships. I believe Mirzan paid back what he owed MARA. He had the scholarship before I became a Minister, in fact when I was expelled from UMNO.
15) I have bought or been given no shares except for 200 Malayan Tobacco shares I bought long before I joined the Government. Other shares are the Unit Trusts issued by PNB and State Governments which I was obliged to buy. I own shares in MICO pharmacy in Alor Star which I set up when I was a private practitioner.
16) I am not interested in getting rich or living a life of luxury. What I have now is far more than I had hoped for when I was dreaming as a student. I am grateful to Allah for what I have and for sparing me to live this long.
17) I am ready to go when my time comes. I am conscious that all that I have will not accompany me to the grave.
18) But for as long as I can I will work hard to prevent evil people and crooks from destroying this country that I love.

maybe it will be my new addiction

almost 2 years i have stopped assembling plastic model which at that time my addiction was towards Gundam. i'm really satisfied when i managed to finished one model after another. but it was a very expensive hobby and of course time consuming also. with my latest commitment, to finish one model will take me a lot of month. that we talk about Gundam which the parts were not that many. but what about this hobby?

hahaha. surely i need a year to even finish one! but it really look tempting to try. but it will be really expensive more expensive that a Gundam Model. i don't know, but recently i took a liking to battleship model. I've search the internet, but none sold a complete / finished model. if i want to have one in my collections i have to assembly it myself. not just assembly, but i need to paint them as well. quite a pain in the arse you think?

let me share some photo of the completed model. maybe you know what i mean by temptation. photo here are all courtesy from Hobby Search JP.


what do you think?



budak pelik kiut


layan skit la baby kiut tido.. hehe

Unisel Akan Cairkan Aset Untuk Bantu Pelajar??


Tindakan Kementerian Pengajaian Tinggi membekukan pinjaman PTPTN kepada pelajar UNISEL memaksa kerajaan negeri bertindak mencairkan aset badan pendidikan tersebut bagi membantu pelajarnya yang di aniaya kerajaan pusat.
Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berkata Kerajaan Selangor memandang berat kesusahan yang dihadapi pelajar-pelajar baharu Universiti Selangor (UNISEL) yang teraniayai ekoran tindakan Kerajaan Persekutuan dan Menteri PengajianTinggi yang membekukan PTPTN kepada pelajar di universiti tersebut.
“Sebagai tindakan jangka pendek, pihak UNISEL akan menggunakan asetnya untuk membantu pelajar-pelajar yang dalam kesukaran meneruskan pengajian. Aset ini merupakan hartanah seluas 500 ekar yang diperolehi hasil penyusunan semula hutang-hutang TALAM.
“Kerajaan Selangor telah selesai menyusun semula hutang-hutang ini di mana tanah seluas 500 ekar telah menjadi aset UNISEL.” kata Abdul Khalid dalam satu kenyataan media yang di keluarkan sebentar tadi.
Menurutnya,Kerajaan negeri akan membantu UNISEL mengapungkan hartanah tersebut dipasaran untuk mendapatkan wang tunai. Dianggarkan sejumlah RM30 juta boleh diperolehi hasil dari usaha ini.
“Sebahagian wang ini akan digunakan untuk membantu pelajar-pelajar yang teraniayai akibat dari tindakan kerajaan BN membekukan PTPTN.
azred: ok jom buat kira-kira sat..
student yg dibekukan loan mereka = 1000
yuran unisel - purata satu sem RM1550
so 1000org X 1550 = 1,550,000
lebih kurang 1.6million dana diperlukan utk melaksanakan pengajian percuma. student lama yg masih menuntut pinjamannya tak dibekukan.
cairan asset yg nak dibuat dijangka RM30juta boleh dapat dana
so 30m-1.6m = 28.4m lagi ni?? nak g mana?
xkan nak cairkan asset semata2 nak cover 1000 student kot?

Scorpene Issue - only doubt & suspicion

If we are to believe the Pakatan Rakyat-linked Suaram group, they would be releasing serious expose with details of what they termed as “damning evidence.” That’s the words, they chose, or maybe it’s the words of Malaysiakini, another Pakatan Rakyat outfit.

In the end, PKR MP Sivarasa and Suaram director Cynthia Gabriel could only implicate a certain Mohd Ibrahim Mohd Noor . No one has ever heard of that name and he was quickly referred to as someone “closely linked to Daim Zainuddin.”

Well, Malaysians must have expected big, big names at the press conference, which was dramatically held in Bangkok, and carried live by some pro-Pakatan portals. Potong steam lah, where’s the beef?

If you want to use the “closely linked” argument, then we can also say that both Sivarasa and Cynthia are closely linked to Anwar Ibrahim and surely they would have big vested political interest to make these allegations.

They have been claiming to have evidence for months and until now, all you have are the names of this Mohd Ibrahim and Razak Baginda. Come on, where are all the evidences, besides casting doubts and suspicions, which all the Malaysiakini fans would only believe? Or all the comments from readers made up by its editor Steven Gan?

Cynthia has been making claims of papers and documents being seized by the French police. The only problem is that the French police have said nothing and since when does Cynthia become the spokesman of the French police?

The fact is Cynthia Gabriel is a municipal councillor appointed by the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor state government and is also secretary-general of the Parti Sosialis Malaysia, which works with the PKR, PAS and DAP.

Now, that says a lot of her so called credibility. Why is she hiding behind Suaram? Be open, tell the foreign journalists that you are an active opponent of the Najib Administration! Be decent, please!

Stop The Lies


where are the evidence??

PTPTN Vs Subsidi.


petikan dari mofaz fj


Antara matlamat PTPTN ditubuhkan pada tahun 1997 adalah untuk membolehkan sehingga 50% pelajar lepasan sekolah menengah meneruskan pengajian di universiti. Dan aku memang ingat tahun 97-98 tu la ekonomi kita gawat dan kerajaan terpaksa membatalkan penghantaran pelajar kita keluar negara, malah ada yang dipanggil pulang untuk menyambung pengajian di Malaysia. Pelajar tajaan Mara yang dah siap sedia nak ke luar negara akhirnya ditempatkan di IPTS tempatan seperti MMU, Uniten dan UTP pada masa tu.

Jumlah calon SPM 2010 ialah 467,970 dan STPM pula seramai 53,670 orang, jumlah = 521,640 pelajar. Jumlah yang memohon ke IPTA sekitar 140,000 orang tetapi IPTA hanya mampu menerima 60,000 pelajar baru setiap tahun, hanya 11% daripada jumlah pelajar lepasan sekolah. Ramai pelajar IPTA yang memohon untuk kursus tertentu 
terpaksa meneruskan pengajian mereka dalam bidang yang berlainan kerana tempat yang sangat terhad. Contohnya memohon Ijazah Perakaunan tetapi yang ditawarkan pula ialah Ijazah Perhutanan. Ada yang menerima kursus yang ditawarkan itu kerana tak mampu belajar di IPTS disebabkan yuran yang tinggi. Pelajar yang mampu pula berpindah ke IPTS, kalau minat multimedia ke MMU, kalau electrical ke Uniten, kalau chemical ke UTP, dan sebagainya.

60,000 pelajar di 20 buah IPTA ni menerima kira-kira 90% subsidi untuk yuran pembelajaran. Contohnya kos pengajian setahun untuk ijazah kejuruteraan elektrik di UPM = RM22,467.. untuk 4 tahun pengajian = RM89,868. Pelajar hanya perlu membayar RM9,408 atau 10% daripada jumlah yuran tersebut.

Untuk mencapai sasaran 50%, baki 39% lagi lepasan SPM & STPM bersamaan 203,400 pelajar perlu ditempatkan di universiti juga. USM antara IPTA terbesar di Malaysia dan hanya mampu mengambil 4,000 pelajar baru setahun. Bermakna, jika semua pelajar ini mahu ditempatkan di IPTA, kerajaan perlu membina kira-kira 50 lagi universiti sebesar USM!

Mengikut data 2010, terdapat 476 IPTS yang berdaftar, namum hanya 73 bertaraf kolej universiti dan keatas. Jumlah pengambilan pelajar di IPTS adalah kira-kira 160,000 pelajar setahun dan sebahagian besar dari angka tersebut adalah dari IPTS yang bukan bertaraf universiti.

Setelah dicampur IPTA & IPTS, 40,000 lagi daripada target 50% itu masih gagal ke universiti / kolej. Dengan wujudnya bandar pendidikan EduCity@Iskandar di Johor kelak mungkin dapat mengatasi masalah ini dan mencapai target 50%, tetapi secara logiknya angka 40,000 pelajar itu memerlukan 10 buah universiti sebesar USM yang mempunyai beberapa cawangan seluruh Malaysia.

IPTS dibina untuk membolehkan lebih ramai pelajar mendapatkan pendidikan yang lebih tinggi selepas SPM & STPM. Seperti yang saya nyatakan, jika kerajaan inginkan 50% lepasan sekolah masuk ke universiti, kerajaan perlu membina 50 lagi USM dan ini memerlukan modal yang sangat besar untuk membina prasarana dan membayar kos pentadbiran dan penyelenggaran setiap tahun.

PTPTN membolehkan lebih ramai lepasan SPM & STPM belajar dan menampung kos sara hidup di IPTA & IPTS. secara kasar, ramai ibu-bapa yang mungkin tidak mampu menampung kos sara hidup anak mereka di universiti. Jika gaji ibu-bapa setakat RM2000 sebulan, mungkin susah nak beri RM300-400 sebulan kepada anak di universiti kerana anak yang lain masih bersekolah.

Jika PR menang dan mentadbir Malaysia, mereka berjanji memberikan pendidikan universiti percuma malah akan memberikan juga RM5000 setahun sebagai wang sara hidup. Mereka turut menyatakan akan memberi faedah yang sama kepada pelajar IPTS. Jika kita masih mengekalkan target 50% lepasan sekolah masuk ke universiti dan setiap kursus memerlukan RM20,000 setahun termasuk sara hidup, untuk 250,000 pelajar memerlukan RM5b. Itu baru satu batch setahun.. dalam tahun yang sama ada 4 batch (pelajar tahun 1-4), maka kos setahun ialah RM20b... itu baru yuran yang RM15,000 setahun, kalau bidang perubatan, yuran adalah lebih dari RM20,000 setahun dan pengajian mengambil masa 6 tahun.

Fakta dan perbandingan yang digunakan oleh Rafizi tu kurang tepat. Jangan guna Finland sebagai perbandingan sebab rakyat Finland sekadar 5juta orang, sama macam Singapore je. Rakyat Malaysia ada 28juta dan lepasan SPM & STPM sahaja ada lebih setengah juta. Adakah Finland memberikan pendidikan percuma kepada sebegini ramai? tidak! jumlah pelajar universiti di Finland dalam satu-satu tahun sekitar 300,000 orang sedangkan kita ada berjuta. Dan kenapa Rafizi guna RM untuk perbandingan cukai pendapatan? Ramai ke yang dapat gaji RM di Finland? dan kenapa gunakan income tax rate yang tertinggi? saya berpendapat memang wajar kerajaan mengenakan cukai yang tinggi pada orang yang bergaji lebih 200,000 setahun. Untuk perbandingan yang lebih jelas, gunakan pendapatan perkapita (GDP/PPP) sebagai purata dan rujukan cukai. PPP di Finland adalah 30,250 Euro dan kadar cukai untuk nilai tersebut adalah 17.5%. Itu belum termasuk 'social security tax', dan VAT untuk setiap barangan yang anda beli pada kadar 23%, barang makanan pun perlu bayar VAT 13% di Finland. PPP di Malaysia pula ialah RM49,000 dan cukai yang perlu dibayar berjumlah RM3205 atau hanya 6%. Jauh bezanya kan?

Jumlah subsidi yang ditanggung kerajaan untuk minyak ialah RM20b dan ia lebih-kurang 15% perbelanjaan negara setahun. Jika ditambah RM20b untuk subsidi pendidikan seperti yang saya gambarkan di atas, maka jumlah subsidi yang menyamai 30% bajet kerajaan itu adalah sesuatu yang tidak wajar. Sebenarnya, saya tidak suka sistem 'blanket subsidy' yang boleh dinikmati oleh sesiapa tanpa mengira kemampuan kewangan seperti ini. Yang kaya memandu kereta 2000-3000cc tapi yang miskin guna kapcai 70cc sahaja. setiap kali mengisi minyak 50liter, yang kaya dapat 'menikmati' subsidi RM55, tapi si miskin yang hanya guna 3-4liter hanya 'menikmati' subsidi RM4. Tidak keterlaluan jika saya katakan subsidi sebegini hanya menguntungkan yang kaya. Lupuskan subsidi minyak dan berikan bantuan RM1000-2000 kepada keluarga berpendapatan rendah dan miskin. Jumlah bantuan itu masih jauh lebih rendah daripada jumlah subsidi petrol saban tahun.

Begitu juga tentang subsidi pendidikan tinggi ini... jika diberikan sahaja tanpa sebarang syarat, dikhuatiri kualiti graduan akan merosot. lihat sahaja berapa ramai yang corot dalam PMR dan SPM. Saya lebih setuju sekiranya bantuan asal diberikan dalam bentuk pinjaman dan ditukar kepada biasiswa untuk pelajar yang lulus cemerlang, sepertimana sistem yang digunakan oleh PTPTN pada masa ini. Untuk menambahbaik sistem ini, mungkin pinjaman boleh diberi dengan 0% interest dan bayaran balik dikurangkan mengikut pencapaian gred-gred tertentu.





note : aku yakin akan byk masalah chain reaction akan berlaku jika ia dibuat. i'm talking from the perspective of economy. aku pun accountant gak..

BERSIH Protest in London (An Evening with Najib)

Are we Malaysian really that low? Are we Malaysian have degraded our morale values?
Learn to respect others and others will respect you..
to me whatever reason it maybe they should act in this uncivilized way..
Use the election to express your vote instead of barking like an idiot & at the same time humiliating Malaysia in other countries.

enough is enough..

the most amazing season in Premier League history

Well you said it.. Although my beloved team lost the title last night.. I'm still amaze & mesmerize by the game yesterday night. It really give me shocking heart & goosebumps... I watched the MC vs QPR most rather than MU game (which is dull). N i must say the game was filled with emotional. MC really go for it & QPR also fight for (as to avoid relegation). And the title chase goes until the very last second of the game. N MC triumph over it. 2 goals in added time seal the title.. I must admit Manchester City is better the most deserve it..

Congrats to you MC... Now that mark the end of EPL for the season with the most amazing season in history..

Ignorance of Law??

KUALA LUMPUR: A lawyer yesterday became the second person to be charged in relation to the Bersih 3.0 rally that took place more than a week ago.

[source : nst]

what will you say if someone with high knowledge and education of the law disregard the law itself? can you say it is an ignorance of law?

can a knowledgeable lawyer disregard the law, furthermore that person is also a disciplinary committee members of a professional bodies?

Does his action shows that he is discipline? professional? abide by law? 

i am not a lawyer, just a simple accountant. we also have law to follow. if we (claim to be a professional practitioner) did not follow a written law. how does we expect people without knowledge to follow too?

Yes, yes , yes.. i know, not guilty until proven.. yes you make your point.. you have all the rights to argue..

what my point here is morality, integrity and professionalism.  

i make my point, and i rest my case...

antara pelajaran, ptptn & politik










"KUALA LUMPUR - Lebih 300
mahasiswa menyertai demonstrasi di ibu negara petang ini menuntut pemansuhan
skim pinjaman Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN).


Kumpulan
mahasiswa itu, sebelum berhimpun di Dataran Merdeka, berkumpul di kawasan Masjid
Jamek dan kemudian di pekarangan Kompleks Sogo, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman
sekitar jam 2.30 petang mendengar ucapan beberapa pemimpin pelajar dan pemimpin
PKR termasuk Nurul Izzah Anwar dan Tian Chua, masing-masing Naib Presiden parti
itu.


Mereka
berhimpun di Dataran Merdeka menuntut respons daripada pihak kerajaan mengenai
tuntutan mereka agar skim pinjaman PTPTN dimansuhkan... seterusnya"





aku tau
isu ni dah lame dah lapuk.. dekat sebulan dah.. tapi saje ngade2 jugak aku nak
ngomen kat sini sbb aku ni gatal tgn sgt nak menaip.. same le mcm mahasiswa2 yg
terbabit yg same gatal tangan timbul isu yang pada hemat aku lah no issue.. 













teringat
aku zaman dulu2 waktu aku belajar kat uitm dulu.. ptptn ni mmg le sgt ditunggu2
oleh budak2 u.. bile ade je jerit "PTPTN MASUK!!" nahh satu kolej
lari g ATM nak check duit masuk.. punye la gembira gile duit ptptn masuk, cukup
ujung minggu terus g town joli sakan, beli handset la (zaman dulu takde
tablet).. perkara yang normal setiap semester aku tgk. biasalah darah muda dpt
pegang duit banyak2 ribu2.. mane nak tahan...





ok cukup
zaman silam.. aku pelik la budak2 semua ni.. terutamanya kaum aku sendiri..
senangnya hidup zaman skrg ni.. pinjam duit, pastu nak suruh mansuh sebab tak
nak bayar.. wahh senangnya gitu.. kalau mcm tu aku nak wat gak la NGO ape
bagai, ajak join ramai2, sape ade loan kete, loan rumah, loan peribadi ngan
bank jom kita wat himpun tuntut mansuh semua loan ni.. kasi free je la.. boleh
tak mcm tu?





Come la
guys.. nothing is free la... ko ckp nak free education?? come on la.. kalau la
semua diberi free, manusia akan hilang rasa tanggungjawab.. dah free kalau fail
pun xpe la kan..
nnt blajo la lagi.. free kan...
anytime boleh amik lagi paper.. (faham tak situasi) 





aku pun
pinjam ptptn, dah abis bayar pun semua utang aku.. aku pinjam pun xfull.. sbb
aku tau mane tahap kemampuan aku.. aku pinjam pun sbb nak buat modal beli
laptop utk senang buat assigment.. ptptn bagi RM7,000 kat aku, RM3,000 beli
laptop, lebih simpan ASB... abis aku blajo.. aku bayar sampai abis.. takde
masalah pun kat aku? dah pinjam bayor la balik.. org lain pun nak guna duit tu
nak tuntut ilmu..


ape pun
issue ptptn ni senang je.. yang korang nak bising2 sgt apesal.





PTPTN
bukannya wajib diambil sebagai syarat masuk U.
kalau dah taknak bayar jgn la amik.. kalau dah amik tu belajar la rajin2.. nnt
dpt score power, convert la jadi biasiswa.. ini belajar pun hampeh.. nak perjuangkan
isu yg ntah apa2.. 





apa pun
aku tgk isu ptptn ni hanyalah sebagai political mileage utk pihak2
tertentu.. ingat lah, jgn sampai tergadai bangsa.. sbb walaupun kita besar tapi
belum tentu kita kuat.. agak2 kalau PTPTN ni mansuh siapa yg akan paling rugi
ye? PM? UMNO? BN? PKR? DAP? PAS?...





PTPTN =
Pelajaran, but not politics.
