Tragedi di bilik asrama UTM


JOHOR BAHRU: Sedih dan menyayat hati! Itu nasib malang seorang bekas pelajar wanita berusia 26 tahun yang ditemui mati dipercayai akibat pendarahan serius selepas melahirkan anak dalam keadaan serba kekurangan di sebuah bilik asrama di Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Skudai dekat sini, petang kelmarin.

Lebih malang lagi, bekas pelajar tahun empat itu dipercayai menderita keseorangan ketika melahirkan anak dan hanya ditemui kira-kira jam 5 petang, selepas lebih dua hari Allahyarham menghembuskan nafas terakhir.

Kejadian disedari ketika minggu orientasi pelajar baru berlangsung apabila beberapa pelajar mengadu kepada ahli jawatankuasa (AJK) minggu orientasi ada sebuah bilik asrama berbau busuk.

Berikutan itu seorang daripada AJK minggu orientasi memeriksa bilik berkenaan yang berkunci dari dalam itu.

AJK terbabit membuat aduan kepada pengetua kolej kediaman sebelum pengawal keselamatan diarah menyiasat.

Sebaik pintu dibuka, pengawal keselamatan terbabit terkejut melihat sekujur tubuh tanpa seurat benang terbaring kaku dengan percikan darah di lantai.

Lebih mengejutkan, penemuan bayi lelaki yang sudah tidak bernyawa tidak jauh dari mayat wanita itu.

Ketua Polis Daerah Johor Bahru Utara, Asisten Komisioner Ruslan Hassan, berkata pihaknya menerima maklumat berhubung penemuan mayat wanita berkenaan sebelum bergegas ke tempat kejadian.

“Berdasarkan siasatan, mangsa berasal dari Kelantan dan belum berkahwin. Dia disahkan meninggal dunia sekurang-kurangnya dua hari sebelum ditemui.

“Kami percaya besar kemungkinan kematian mangsa berpunca daripada pendarahan serius selepas bersalin.

“Namun, kita tetap meneruskan siasatan bagi mengenal pasti punca sebenar kematian mangsa dan melihat sama ada wujud kemungkinan ada unsur jenayah,” katanya.

Ruslan berkata, pihaknya tidak menolak kemungkinan pasangan wanita terbabit pelajar di kampus sama.

“Buat masa ini kami dalam proses mengenal pasti pasangan wanita berkenaan bagi membantu siasatan, manakala mangsa sudah dihantar ke Hospital Sultanah Aminah (HSA) untuk bedah siasat.

“Sesiapa yang mempunyai maklumat berhubung kejadian diminta menghubungi polis Johor di talian 07-2212999 atau tampil ke balai polis untuk membantu siasatan,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Penolong Pendaftar Perhubungan Media UTM, Sabri Ahmad, ketika dihubungi memberitahu mangsa sudah ditamatkan pengajiannya pada Januari lalu selepas gagal pada peperiksaan akhir Semester 1 sesi 2008/2009.

Menurutnya, bilik berkenaan disewa wanita terbabit sejak 11 Mei lalu kerana polisi UTM membenarkan orang luar menyewa bilik asrama ketika cuti semester.

Ditanya tindakan seterusnya berhubung kes itu, Sabri berkata, pihak kampus tidak dapat menangani kes berkenaan seperti kes biasa membabitkan pelajar memandangkan mangsa tidak lagi berstatus pelajar selepas ditamatkan pengajiannya.

“Bagaimanapun, kita akan berusaha membantu pihak berkenaan berhubung urusan berkaitan dengan kejadian ini,” katanya.

Berhubung dakwaan kemungkinan teman lelaki mangsa pelajar UTM, Sabri berkata, pihaknya tidak dapat mengesahkan perkara itu kerana buat masa ini belum ada maklumat mengenainya.

Night Market [Bazaar Malam]

Calling myself to share about the night market. It should be a new information for those who just arrived to Malaysia, perhaps.

The night markets are typically from 6 o'clock pm till 10.00 - 10.30 pm. You can get anything from night markets - groceries, clothing, good local food, hot snacks, accessories, bags, CDs, tapes, Videos, household items, fresh produce, the latest fads, etc. All at low prices and you can still bargain for lower prices!
There are morning markets also, but they are are more suitable for getting groceries and fish, meat, fruit and vegetables. We call those markets with fresh seafood "wet markets". These morning markets are from 6 - 9 am in every part of the city.

Night markets or night bazaars are street markets operating at night that are generally dedicated to more leisurely strolling, shopping, and eating than more businesslike day markets.The most well-known night markets are those in Taiwan, but they also exist other areas inhabited by ethnic Chinese such as Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Thailand, and Chinatowns worldwide.

Night markets are commonly known as Pasar Malam by the locals, which literally means night market, "pasar" being related to "bazaar" in Persian. A pasar malam is a street market in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia that opens in the evening, usually in residential neighbourhoods.[1]

It brings together a collection of stalls that usually sell goods such as fruit, vegetables, snacks, toys, clothes, movie discs and ornaments at cheap or at least reasonable prices. A pasar malam often takes place only one to a few days of the week, as the traders rotate around different neighbourhoods on different days of the week. Haggling over prices is a common practice at such markets.

King of Pop dead at around 4pm local time (12.00 GMT)

The sensational, yet tragic life of Michael Jackson, the supremely-gifted pop singer who emerged from childhood stardom to become one of the most influential and infamous celebrities of modern times, was cut short late last night in the chaotic emergency room of a Los Angeles hospital. He was 50.

Doctors pronounced the King of Pop dead at around 4pm local time (12.00 GMT), after he suffered a massive cardiac arrest at his rented chateau-style home in the Holmby Hills area of the city, shortly after mid-day. He had been discovered in a coma when emergency services arrived at the scene. The death of the once-dazzling performer came weeks before he was due to attempt to re-launch his career with a series of 40 comeback concerts in London.

Jackson was reportedly taken ill as he prepared to leave home and drive to Burbank, where he was rehearsing the new show that was to mark his return to the stage for the first time in almost ten years. He was hoping to rehabilitate his reputation following a series of freakish scandals that had left him bankrupt, with his private life and reputation in tatters.

Exact circumstances of the incident were still unclear at time of going to print. However paramedics reported being called to a 7 bedroom, 13 bathroom house on Carolwood Drive, just off Sunset Boulevard, at 12.21pm Los Angeles time. The French-style property, boasted 12 fireplaces and a cinema, and was being rented by Jackson for $100,000 [£60,000] a month.

An ambulance arrived less than five minutes later and discovered the singer unconscious and in full cardiac arrest. Unconfirmed reports said he had been working out in the home's gym with Lou Ferigno, the actor who played the Incredible Hulk and had been helping him get in shape for the forthcoming concerts.

The ambulance was logged leaving the property at 12.32, and doctors performed CPR throughout the 2 mile, six minute journey to UCLA medical centre. However, they were unable to revive him and he never regained consciousness.

Large crowds were gathering outside the hospital last night, with many carrying flowers and banners, and some mourners wearing fancy dress costumes. The sudden news of Jackson's death shocked the world, crashed news websites, and prompted tens of millions of viewers to switch to rolling news channels. At one point, almost a dozen TV helicopters were hovering above the hospital.

Scores of policemen arrived at the scene, and mounted a chaotic effort to secure the building. Family members were on the scene from shortly after Jackson's admission. Joe Jackson, the star's father, told showbiz website TMZ.com, which broke the story, that he had been rushed to hospital that "he is not doing well."

The website later broke the news that the singer had died. TMZ added that his sister LaToya Jackson ran into the hospital sobbing. Also at the venue were Jackson's three children, who he has brought up alone: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael Jackson II, who is known as "Blanket."

Jackson's death brings a tragic conclusion to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his commercial peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, and dazzled the world with the haunting reach of his possibilities.

In public, he was perhaps the most exciting artist of his generation, known for crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched. His single sequinned glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance.

In terms of his earnings and fame, he ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. In fact, he united two of contemporary music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie.

Yet in private, he became an increasingly tortured soul, who perhaps never recovered from being denied a normal childhood. At the height of his fame, he lived at a bizarre Hearstian theme park called Neverland where he slept in oxygen tents, held hands with a chimpanzee called Bubbles, and (at a time when it didn't have dubious connotation) invited thousands of children to play.

As years went by, he became an increasingly freakish figure – a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grownup life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children, and became an object of tabloid infamy.

In 2005, he was tried and then cleared of charges he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him. Jackson's financial problems finally caught up with him in November, after four years on the road, living in luxury hotels in Bahrain, Ireland and Germany, mostly at other people's expense, when Neverland went into foreclosure. In a bid to clear his debts, creditors persuaded him to announce a series of 50 concerts at the O2 arena in London, which sold out in hours when tickets went on sale.

The shows were heralded as the first step in an unlikely career renaissance that would ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, and even a "Thriller" casino. It would wipe out his massive debts, estimated at close to $60m, and allow him to retire in comfort.

However cynics always doubted Jackson was physically capable of a comeback, which was originally scheduled for July 8. Attention may now turn to whether it was responsible for the promoters to make Jackson carry out the tour. In May, Randy Phillips, the head of AEG who had promoted the concerts, denied tabloid reports that he was suffering from skin cancer. "He's as healthy as can be; no health problems whatsoever." However days later, AEG was forced to cancel the first four shows of the run, blaming "technical issues." The opening night was moved to July 13.

Quincy Jones, who helped arrange Thriller and produced Off the Wall album, told reporters: "I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him."

Bloggers have no right to privacy says British court

The High Court in London has ruled that bloggers have no right to privacy under British law since blogging is essentially a public rather than a private activity. Skip related content

The case was brought by The Times newspaper after it discovered the identity of a blogger in the police service who wrote the popular NightJack web page, which was awarded the Orwell Prize for political writing in April.

The author, Richard Horton, a detective constable with Lancashire Constabulary, had sought an injunction to stop the paper from releasing his name but his application was denied.

It would seem to be quite legitimate for the public to be told who it was who was choosing to make, in some instances quite serious criticisms of police activities and, if it be the case, that frequent infringements of police discipline regulations were taking place, said Mr Justice Eady, The Times reports.

I do not accept that it is part of the courts function to protect police officers who are, or think they may be, acting in breach of police discipline regulations from coming to the attention of their superiors.

The NightJack blog was very popular with the reading public, getting up to half a million hits a week. Horton has now deleted the blog and received a written warning from his superiors.

The case will have a chilling effect on other workplace blogs, since the lack of any expectation of privacy will cause some to abandon their blogs.

Thousands of regular bloggers . . . would be horrified to think that the law would do nothing to protect their anonymity if someone carried out the necessary detective work and sought to unmask them, said Hugh Tomlinson, QC, for Mr Horton.

The police force has supplied a number of authors of popular blogs, so much so that the forces have intro duced guidelines on blogging aimed at limiting what can be said by officers on the beat.

Oral health: Brush up on dental care basics

Oral health begins with clean teeth. Get daily dental care tips, from brushing and flossing to recognizing oral health problems.

By Mayo Clinic staff

Too tired to brush your teeth? Too busy to floss? If you're tempted to skip these daily chores, remember that your smile depends on these simple dental care habits. Know how to promote oral health — and when to report oral health problems to your dentist.

Brushing for oral health

Oral health begins with clean teeth. Consider these brushing basics from the American Dental Association:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day. When you brush, don't rush. Take enough time to do a thorough job.
  • Use the proper equipment. Use a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Consider using an electric or battery-operated toothbrush, especially if you have arthritis or other problems that make it difficult to brush effectively.
  • Practice good technique. Hold your toothbrush at a slight angle against your teeth and brush with short back-and-forth motions. Remember to brush the inside and chewing surfaces of your teeth, as well as your tongue. Avoid vigorous or harsh scrubbing, which can irritate your gums.
  • Know when to replace your toothbrush. Invest in a new toothbrush or a replacement head for your electric toothbrush every three to four months — or sooner if the bristles become frayed.

Flossing for oral health

You can't reach the tight spaces between your teeth or under your gumline with a toothbrush. That's why daily flossing is important. When you floss:

  • Don't skimp. Break off about 18 inches of dental floss. Wind most of the floss around the middle finger on one hand, and the rest around the middle finger on the other hand — leaving about 1 inch to floss your first tooth.
  • Take it one tooth at a time. Use your thumbs and forefingers to gently pull the floss from the gumline to the top of the tooth to scrape off plaque. Rub the floss against all sides of the tooth. Unwind to fresh floss as you progress to the next tooth.
  • Keep it up. If you have trouble getting floss through your teeth, try the waxed variety. If it's hard to manipulate the floss, use a floss holder or an interdental cleaner — such as a dental pick or stick designed to clean between the teeth.

Other oral health care tips

In addition to daily brushing and flossing, you might use an antimicrobial or antiseptic mouth rinse to help reduce plaque between your teeth.

To remove food particles from your teeth, you might try an oral irrigator — a device that aims a stream of water at your teeth. Resist the temptation to use toothpicks or other objects that could injure your gums. Keep in mind, however, an oral irrigator doesn't replace daily brushing and flossing.

Oral health problems to report to your dentist

To prevent gum disease and other oral health problems, schedule regular dental cleanings and exams — generally at least once or twice a year. In the meantime, contact your dentist if you notice any signs or symptoms that may suggest oral health problems, such as:

  • Red, tender or swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed when you brush or floss
  • Gums that begin pulling away from your teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes in the way your top and bottom teeth align with each other
  • Unusual sensitivity to hot and cold

Early detection and treatment of oral health problems can ensure a lifetime of good oral health.

10 Tips for Getting Good Sleep

There’s a lot of advice out there about getting good sleep -- and it's very important. We quickly adjust to being sleep-deprived, and don't notice that we aren't functioning at a normal level, but lack of sleep really affects us. If you're feeling blue or listless, try going to sleep thirty minutes earlier for a week. It can really help.

Here are tips that have helped me get good sleep:

Good habits for good sleep:

1. Exercise most days, even if it’s just to take a walk.

2. No caffeine after 6:00 p.m.

3. An hour before bedtime, avoid doing any kind of work that takes alert thinking. Addressing envelopes—okay. Analyzing an article—nope.

4. Adjust your bedroom temperature to be slightly chilly.

5. Keep your bedroom dark. Studies show that even the tiny light from a digital alarm clock can disrupt a sleep cycle. We have about six devices in our room that glow bright green; it’s like sleeping in a mad scientist’s lab. I have to put a pillow over the cable box.

6. Keep the bedroom as tidy as possible. It’s not restful to fight through chaos into bed.

If sleep won’t come:
7. Breathe deeply and slowly until you can’t stand it anymore.

8. If your mind is racing (you’re planning a trip, a move; you’re worried about a medical diagnosis), write down what’s on your mind. This technique really works for me.

9. Slather yourself with body lotion. This feels good and also, if you’re having trouble sleeping because you’re hot, it cools you down.

10. If your feet are cold, put on socks.

Five Malaysian Institutions Among Top 100 Asian Universities

KUALA LUMPUR, May 11 (Bernama) -- University of Malaya (UM) led four other Malaysian universities into the Top 100 Asian Universities list, the first regional ranking issued by The Times Higher Education (THE)-Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

Apa dah nak jadi ni...

Telan pil perancang jadi wanita

KUALA LUMPUR 14 Jun – Obses untuk menjadi ‘wanita’, golongan lelaki lembut dan mak nyah kini cenderung makan pil pencegah hamil kerana terpengaruh dengan dakwaan kononnya ia boleh merealisasikan impian mereka menjadi wanita.

Mereka beranggapan, amalan pil perancang boleh merubah tubuh menjadi seperti ‘wanita’. Payu dara membesar umpama gadis. Kulit yang kasar akan menjadi halus dan gebu. Suara parau boleh bertukar merdu serta lunak. Otot-otot sasa pada badan bakal pula hilang lalu bertukar menjadi seksi.

Trend mengambil pil pencegah hamil sebagai alternatif ‘bajet murah’ untuk memiliki tubuh seperti ‘wanita’ ini dikatakan sudah menjadi amalan golongan itu sejak lima tahun lalu.

Ubat-ubat tersebut bukan sahaja diambil oleh golongan mak nyah dan lelaki lembut berusia lebih 40-an tetapi sudah menular di kalangan mak nyah yang masih menuntut..

Mereka tidak takut ‘mempertaruhkan nyawa’ serta menjadikan tubuh sendiri umpama ‘bahan uji kaji’ dengan mencuba pelbagai jenis pil pencegah hamil.

Pemantauan Utusan Malaysia mendapati terdapat lebih 50 jenis ubat pencegah kehamilan jenama popular yang dijual secara bebas di farmasi dan kedai runcit.

Antaranya ialah Nordette, Microgynon 30, Gynera, Marvelon,Nordiol, Rigevidon, Minutet, Mercilon dan Jasmine.

Harga ubat-ubatan tersebut cukup murah iaitu cuma RM9.90 untuk 30 kapsul.

Ada juga menggunakan ubat pencegah hamil yang dijual di pasar malam dan kaki lima oleh warga asing.

Walaupun belum ada perangkaan terkini jumlah mak nyah di negara ini, namun pada Julai 2005, Setiausaha Parlimen Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat, Chew Mei Fun ada menyatakan jumlahnya kira-kira 10,000 orang.

Bilangan tersebut diperoleh daripada kajian yang pernah dibuat oleh seorang pensyarah Universiti Utara Malaysia.

Ekoran sikap `terbuka’ masyarakat terhadap mak nyah, golongan tersebut kini dilaporkan semakin meningkat dan mereka semakin teruja untuk memiliki tubuh wanita bagi melengkapkan lagi penampilan supaya mudah mencari pasangan hidup.

Petronas Subang Airport : Berhati-hati la ye...

Aku nak rehat sekejap dari cerita politik, aku nak kongsi cerita dengan korang semua apa yang aku alami malam tadi, selalunya setiap hari Isnin dan Khamis aku ada game badminton, mula jam 09.00pm hingga 11.00pm, seperti biasa kalau ada game badminton aku akan lepak di ofis, buat apa yang patut sementara menunggu waktu game tu start.

Sebabnya nak ulang alik rumah ke dewan tu jauh beb…. Jimat kos konon-kononnya, selalunya bila nak pergi main badminton aku akan usung laptop aku, sebab habis game terus balik rumah. Tapi semalam entah apa punya angin atau buang tebiat agaknya… aku plan lepas badminton pergi ofis siapkan kerja sikit, ambil laptop dan balik… bodoh punya perancangan.

Selesai badminton lepak ngan kawan-kawan minum kat mapley, sampai ofis dah jam 12.00 lebih, mengadap laptop sempat la buat posting yang cut and paste jer… tu yang kat bawah tu, nak siapkan kerja konon… hampeh… badan letih boleh perah otak ke… tup-tup masuk pulak sms dari Puan Permaisuri berbunyi “Balik pukul berapa, tolong beli susu Aleeya dah habis, sori lambat bagitau”, aku jawap “ Ok…” jer...,

Kepala otak menerawang… kat mana aku nak beli tengah malam buta ni…, sambil kemas barang dan kunci ofis, cari kat kedai tujuh sebelas takda… merayau cari dan cari jumpa juga akhirnya tapi paket kecil, boleh la… janji ada stok buat sementara dan si kecil aku tu tak kelaparan malam ni, usaha tangga kejayaan beb…

Dalam perjalanan balik, aku singgah di Petronas Subang Airport untuk mengisi minyak, waktu tu lebih kurang sudah pukul 2.00am macam tu lah… selesai isi minyak sewaktu nak keluar dari kawasan stesyen minyak tu….., aku rasa lain macam jer…. bila masuk jalan besar… aku rasa kereta aku berat semacam dan bulu roma meremang semacam jer… dalam hati aku berkata “something wrong somewhere” dan aku lihat cermin pandang belakang.. pergh… berderau darah aku dan mulalah tak tentu arah….

Dalam pada itu aku buat-buat pandang ke kerusi sebelah kiri sambil menjeling ke belakang… alamak kompom ada something kat kerusi belakang …, lepas tu….. aku :country-regioncuba nak alihkan cermin pandang belakang… tapi risau pulak nanti aku tak nampak aktiviti dia kat belakang, buatnya dia hulur tangan kat leher aku lagi naya…nak tak nak tabahkan hati dan kontrol macho….

Tiba-tiba jer aku dah mula berpeluh kerana terkejut dan gabra…, bila aku dah dapat kontrol diri dan hilang rasa panik, mental dalam keadaan stabil aku mula baca apa yang patut dan bercakap dengan minah yang tak di undang ni, rambutnya lurus menjurai melepasi bahu dan berbaju hitam ke kelabu aku tak pasti… kerana dalam keadaan samar berharapkan lampu jalan… mungkin baju lusuh dah lama tak basuh agaknya… sayangnya muka dia aku tak nampak… adakah secantik model kapal selam atau secantik model Indonesia yang berumur 17 tahun tu atau seiras Angelina Jolie… aku tak pasti....

Aku kata padanya “Engkau makhluk, aku pun makhluk, Pencipta kita ALLAH SWT, bezanya aku ini makhluk yang dimuliakan, engkau naik kereta aku tanpa izin, aku hantar kau ke tempat kau naik tadi, dan aku nak kau turun di situ” korang bayangkanlah suara aku bercakap masa tu.. tergagap… gagap… macam MB Selangor tu… kalau akad nikah sah kena ulang berpuloh kali… tapi nak buat macam mana, darurat…beb… itu pun aku bersyukur pasal dia tak menjawap balik… kalau tak macam manalah suara dia… sure lentok habis macam si minah di belakang kowloon agaknya…

Sesiapa yang tahu jalan dari Subang Airport menghala ke lebuhraya persekutuan boleh agak berapa jarak jauhnya, nasib baik sekarang ni dah ada U-turn kat Ara Damansara, so aku buat U-turn kat situ dan menghala ke arah bulatan Subang Airport untuk buat u-turn sekali lagi menghala ke Stesyen Petronas tadi…, tapi seksanya kereta aku punya berat tak tau nak dibayangkan..... terasa macam pandu 30km sejam dengan beban kayu balak 50tan untuk sampai ke Petronas tu…

Sambil memandu sambil menjeling cermin tengok dia ada lagi ke tak ada… aku tak tau nak meluahkan macam mana perasaan aku waktu dan ketika itu, yang pasti mulut aku berkumat kamit baca ayat qursi dan bermacam lagi dengan zikirullah, jiwa aku, dada aku, perut aku semuanya tak tenteram… barcampur baur jadinya… tapi minah tu cool aje kat tempat duduk belakang… macam takda apa-apa jer…. tak terasa panas ke dengan ayat-ayat cinta yang aku baca tu… pelik juga… atau aku yang tersalah mengungkapkan ayat-ayat cinta padanya… pasal tu takda respons…kecewa betul….

Sampai jer… kat petronas tadi, aku berhentikan kereta dan turunkan cermin tingkap belakang kiri dan kanan sambil cakap kat dia “ Ok… saudari kita dah sampai… boleh turun di sini” sambil menjeling cermin pandang belakang… alamak apasal dia ada lagi… tak nak turun ke… dah la aku jadi drebar tak berbayar, takan nak suruh aku bukakan pintu pula… kacau macam ni…dalam waktu fikiran aku berkecamuk tu tiba-tiba terperasan ada kereta bagi lampu tinggi dan secara automatik aku menoleh ke arah cermin sisi sebelah kanan, apabila aku toleh semula ke cermin pandang belakang… minah tu dah takda…, aku pusingkan badan menoleh ke belakang untuk kepastian…. wokeh … kompom dia dah blah… masa bila dia keluar pun aku tak tau… pantas betul…

Aku tadah tangan, berdoa.. ucapkan syukur alhamdulillah… aaminnn…. dan ucapkan selamat jalan kat dia suruh dia takecare and becareful dan aku pun apalagi… pecut kereta semahunya… aku tekan pedal minyak rasa ringan semacam jer… berdesup perginya… tengok meter… fuhhh… 160… aku slowdown… sambil-sambil tu mata meliar juga dengan harapan dia tak follow aku lagi…. manalah tahu dia terlupa nak ucapkan terima kasih masa turun tadi… sambil terbang kat tepi tingkap... tapi ada bau wangi yang ditinggalkan… macam bau bunga melor kalau tak silap aku… dan aku pun malas nak ambik pot… sangat… pasal bau tu… janji aku selamat.

Sampai jer… di luar pagar rumah… aku teringat pesan orang tua-tua… aku pun tak jadi masuk rumah dan pergi lepak sorang-sorang pekena teh tarik dulu kat restoran mamak sambil layan astro, dalam setengah jam baru balik rumah, baca-baca apa yang patut, basuh kaki, ludah kiri kanan dan masuk rumah…. cumanya aku tak boleh tidur dan lelapkan mata…. masih terbayang-bayang lagi pada minah tu…. adakah aku dah jatuh cinta padanya…. ha..ha..ha… minta laluan… minta…laluan… idak ler…teman…

Saat aku taipkan cerita ini sekarang, aku masih berfikir dan merenungkan perkara malam tadi tuh… mungkin ada hikmahnya dan aku masih tercari-cari lagi jawapannya… apa pun syukur alhamdulillah… sifat takut dan panik dapat aku atasi walaupun kecut perut jugak dibuatnya.

Lagipun mungkin kerana pengalaman dengan ganguan makhluk halus sebelum-sebelum ini membuatkan aku terkawal sikit, walaupun terkejut pada mulanya… padahal sebelum ini aku hanya bertemu sipi-sipi jer dan dari jarak jauh…. bukannya face to face macam ni dalam suasana yang agak lama masanya.

Nasihat serta petua orang-orang tua yang aku gunakan pun banyak membantu… dan tak lupa juga nasihat secara lansung dan tidak lansung dari Ayahanda Mountdweller yang luas pengalamannya dalam dunia mistik pun banyak membantu juga..

Jadi itulah pengalaman “Jangan Pandang Belakang” yang terjadi pada aku malam tadi yang aku dapat kongsikan dengan kalian semua, dan aku berharap perkara ni takan berulang lagi… tapi kalau korang nak cuba boleh juga, pergilah test kat tempat yang aku cakapkan tu… manalah tahu ada rezeki korang berjumpa dengan si dia tu… untung sabut timbul… boleh buat bini…

Sebelum ini pun ada juga aku dengar cerita berkenaan Langsuir kat Bulatan Subang Airport tu, cumanya tak sangka boleh berlaku pada aku malam tadi… aku ingatkan hanya rekaan semata-mata… rupanya real…. wa cakap lu…. tapi aku rasa ini hantu baik la agaknya… sebabnya dia tak cekik aku dan dapat aku berkongsi cerita ni dengan korang semua… walau apa pun…

Innalillah..hiwainalillah…hirrajiun.... semuanya dalam kekuasaanNYA.

(Sekarang ni aku nak cari bantal beb…, harap-harap tak mimpikan dia dan aku tak demam sudah la…) wallahuaklam

----kisah ni aku dapat dari senior aku yang berada di area Subang ....nibuat takot nak stay kat subang ni...huhu

Chin Peng! Kubur Kamu Pun Tak Boleh Di sini!

luahan perasaan seorang berjiwa bangsa...(untuk dihayati bersama)

Kamu banyak berhutang darah dengan Melayu.

Isteri menjadi janda, anak-anak menjadi yatim piatu kerana bekas-bekas tangan kamu yang kamu lumurkan dengan darah Melayu yang tidak berdosa dan tidak bersenjata.

Kamu tidak beragama sedangkan kami menjunjung rukun negara yang meletakkan 'kepercayaan kepada tuhan' sebagai prinsip yang utama. Jangan kata batang tubuh, Kubur kamu pun tidak boleh di sini.


Cerita Sedih Dan Menyayat Hati - Petikan Utusan Online, 28 Mei 2009 / 3 Jamadil Akhir 1430

'Ayah saya diseksa sebelum disembelih'

"Ayah dan bapa saudara saya diikat dengan tali antara satu sama lain, mereka diseksa, seluruh tubuh ditetak dan ditakik-takik sebelum leher kedua-duanya disembelih.

"Semasa ditemui, mayat kedua-duanya hanya tinggal rangka dan tulang, bercampur antara satu sama lain tanpa kepala, amat jelas kesan takikan bertubi-tubi seperti sebatang pokok kayu yang ditakik-takik bagi dikeluarkan getahnya."

Demikian cerita Profesor Dr. Amat Juhari Moain, bekas Dekan Fakulti Bahasa Moden dan Komunikasi Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).

Beliau berkata, jenazah bapanya, Moain Saridin @ Shahidin dan Hassan Akasah yang dibunuh dengan penuh kejam tanpa perikemanusiaan oleh komunis itu kemudian dikebumikan dalam satu liang lahad di Kampung Sungai Dulang Darat, Rengit, Batu Pahat Johor.

Mengimbas kejadian menyayat hati yang berlaku pada akhir Jun 1945 tetapi masih lagi segar di ingatan seolah-olah baru berlaku semalam, Amat Juhari, 69, berkata, semasa dia dan bapanya mandi di tepi Sungai Dulang pada waktu petang, mereka didatangi beberapa penduduk yang meminta bantuan.

Menurut beliau, arwah ayahnya, seorang ketua kampung, dimaklumkan mengenai penangkapan seorang alim yang dikenali dengan nama Wak Sulaiman oleh sekumpulan komunis.

"Adalah menjadi tanggungjawab arwah ayah untuk membantu anak buahnya, lantas dia yang berselempang kain merah segera bergegas ke kawasan hutan di pinggir kampung, kawasan yang menjadi persembunyian komunis itu dengan ditemani oleh Hassan.

"Sehingga lewat tengah malam ayah, Hassan dan Wak Sulaiman masih tidak pulang dan selepas beberapa minggu, langsung tiada berita mengenai mereka bertiga, sama ada hidup atau mati.

"Pada malam yang sama terdapat seorang Cina bersenjata mundar-mandir di kawasan rumah kami, seperti tidak membenarkan kami keluar mendapatkan bantuan.

"Keadaan itu berlarutan sehingga beberapa minggu menyebabkan kami sekeluarga menjelang malam terpaksa menyorok di kawasan pokok buluh berhampiran bagi mengelak perkara tidak diingini berlaku," katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Beberapa minggu selepas itu apabila keadaan telah menjadi aman, penduduk kampung mula berani keluar rumah untuk mengerjakan kebun masing-masing dan ketika itulah mayat Moain dan Hassan ditemui di bahagian hutan.

Sementara itu, Amat Juhari berkata, pada akhir Mei tahun sama, sebelum kejadian itu berlaku, sekumpulan kira-kira 20 komunis yang lengkap bersenjata mengunjungi bapanya di rumah bagi mempelawa dan meyakinkan arwah supaya menyertai kumpulan haram mereka, tetapi telah ditolak.

Tambah beliau, kekejaman komunis tidak hanya terhenti di situ malah ramai lagi penduduk kampung yang berpengaruh seperti penghulu, orang alim dan pendekar dibunuh kerana enggan memberikan sokongan dan kerjasama kepada mereka.

"Saya masih ingat lagi kejadian di Kampung Sungai Tongkang berhampiran kampung kami apabila komunis menyerang rumah penghulu, mereka tembak bertubi-tubi sebelum dibakar menyebabkan kira-kira 30 orang yang berlindung di rumah berkenaan mati," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, beliau berkata, arwah bapanya sebenarnya telah menghidu lebih awal kegiatan komunis di negara ini apabila mendapat maklumat melalui pembacaan dalam Utusan Melayu dan Utusan Zaman yang dilanggan terus daripada Singapura pada masa itu.

World Environment Day | 5th of June

Your Planet Needs You! Unite to Combat Climate Change on World Environment Day

On the 5th of June Scouts will join in the annual celebrations of World Environment Day, participating in environmental education activities, tree planting projects and community celebrations throughout the world. Scouts are an official partner with the United Nations Environment Programme to celebrate this day, with Luc Panissod, Secretary General of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, calling on our members to share their activities with the UNEP World Environment Day website. "World Scouting calls all young people, Scouts and non-Scouts, to engage with UNEP on the occasion of World Environment Day. Raising awareness on climate change and working towards achieving better living conditions has increased Scouting's commitment to addressing environmental issues. Youth empowerment is an integral part of World Scouting policy to invite young people to become agents of change"

Already, the World Organization of the Scout Movement have pledged their participation in the global tree planting drive of the Billion Tree Campaign and World Environment Day. Priority countries for tree planting activities by Scouts include Mexico, India, South Africa, Georgia, Lebanon, Malaysia, Hungary, Philippines, Brazil and Australia. Through this initiative the Scouts hope to plant 65,000 trees or more.

Mexico is the official host country for the United Nations World Environment Day (WED) 2009 celebrations and the Scout Association of Mexico are coordinating many activities, workshops and tree planting projects for this event. This will be accompanied by hundreds of other environment initiatives throughout the world to make this a truly global event.

The theme for WED 2009 is 'Your Planet Needs You! Unite to Combat Climate Change.' It reflects the urgency for nations to ‘seal the deal’ at the crucial climate convention meeting in Copenhagen some 180 days later in the year. It also raises a call for everyone to get involved, rethink actions and ways that result in wastage and heavy greenhouse gas emissions, and adopt a greener lifestyle. There are a number of easy-to-use campaign materials which can be downloaded on the website at http://www.unep.org/wed/2009/english/content/downloads.asp.

These include the WED logo, posters and several flash animations including a new feature, the Daily do something Tips. These are useful ideas on how to easily green your daily routine, and promotional materials that you can use on your website or through other publications.

Further, UNEP have started a global online tree-planting campaign for WED on Twitter. UNEP has pledged to plant 100,000 trees for 100,000 followers --or one for every follower if they can achieve more than 100,000-- by World Environment Day, 5 June. This effort supports the Billion Tree Campaign’s goal to plant a total of seven billion trees- one for every person on the planet- by year’s end. UNEP ask that supporters start following at www.twitter.com/UNEPandYou. Add your voice and twitter loudly!

As the WED slogan says, ‘Your Planet Needs You!’ Please register your activity at:


Illutrasi yang comey...pasal stadium

Penulis termenung melihat igauan buruk yang berlaku di Terengganu. Adakah ianya mengembalikan zaman kemerosotan prestasi kontraktor negara? atau mengembalikan kenangan dugaan sepertimana pemerintahan Tun Abdullah? Penulis semakin gusar dengan keadaan yang melanda.

Masih banyak projek mega yang perlu dipantau ...3 di Terengganu. Bagaimana dengan negeri-negeri lain? Bersediakah untuk kita ditaburi dengan berita-berita yang menyedihkan dan memalukan ini?


KUALA NERUS - Stadium Sultan Mizan sebahagian daripada Kompleks Sukan Gong Badak, berharga RM 450 juta yang dirasmikan pada 10 Mei tahun lalu, runtuh pada jam 9.30 pagi hari ini.

Keseluruhan bumbung 'grand-stand' membabitkan bumbung sepanjang 80 meter meliputi pentas di Raja. stadium yang menjadi kebanggaan itu telah runtuh sama sekali. Runtuhan itu bagaimanapun tidak mengakibatkan kehilangan nyawa namun sebuah kenderaan dan empat buah motosikal yang diletakkan betul-betul dibawah bumbung yang runtuh itu ranap. Menurut saksi Hanafiah Osman, 27, kira-kira jam 9.30, beliau mendengar bunyi 'krak' dibahagian belakang stadium tersebut dan terus bergegas meluru ke bahagian itu kerana kereta beliau diletakkan di bawah bumbung.

Malangnya, runtuhan yang berlaku terlalu cepat menyebabkan beliau hanya terpaku dan melihat kereta 'kancil'nya dihempap oleh kepingan atap dan keluli yang jatuh. Stadium yang dianggap 'tercanggih' di Pantai Timur itu dirasmikan oleh Yang DiPertuan Agong Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin pada 10 Mei tahun lalu dengan upacara gilang gemilang menandakan 'impian menjadi' kenyataan sebagaimana yang dibangga-banggakan oleh bekas Menteri Besar Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh.
