Antara Terompah, Semak Besar, Semak Junior, Yomama, Bapa Keli dan Keli Bukit Berlari
One of the reason kenapa Terompah menang adalah kerana ramai para veteran US sedang marah terhadap Keli.
Isu Benghazi menjadi duri dalam daging ikan keli kerana dianggap telah mengkhianati Duta AS ke Libya dan menyebabkan kematian Duta AS dan 2 orang veteran tentera AS yang bekerja dengan CIA sebagai PMC.
Jika dilihat, kes ini ada mirip dengan tuduhan sama dengan suami Keli Bukit Berlari. Tindakan suami Keli Bukit Berlari, iaitu Bapa Keli menghalang penghantaran AC130 dan Abrams ke Mogadishu disebut sebagai punca utama kegagalan operasi di Pasar Bakara. (Punca utama sebenar adalah pihak Task Force Ranger mengguna modus operandi sama untuk 8 serbuan sebelum itu).
Tetapi bukan itu isu yang kita nak kupas hari ini.

Week of the Fake News
The numbers of fake news was so high that it became a moot point to argue or disprove them. Funnier still that when you try to correct them, they responded saying they will try to confirm it with someone else.

From 1942 to 1943 or 1944, Askar Wataniah Pahang could not effectively fight against the Japanese as they did not have weapons. The British had trust issue with Malays as they blamed Ibrahim Yaacob, the Kesatuan Melayu Muda president as a key traitor that had made the Japanese invasion possible.

One Side of the Coin
It has not been an easy journey. Many had fell along the way, their blood defending the Federation. Yet at times, it seems to be in vain.
Some of those in power, and those who aspire to be in power, do not have the rakyat's interest in their heart. It is theirs and theirs alone.

Sometimes At Loss of Words
To Poke or Not to Poke
Tuesday, August 2, 2016
Once in a while, I would indulge in a satirical post. The most recent recent was the post on the F16.
It was purposely written in a serious language to be as if it is true. Surprisingly, despite the obviously fake F16 and clues like politaik (roughly translated to as shitty politician), some friends taking care of other pages were asked if this post is true.
Sad thinking that the joke had more than two thousand hits, but serious articles get only a few hundred hits.
But even sadder that many did not critically use their thinking cap and deduce the article as a fake.

One of my articles had suffered malware attack. I believe this could be a limited malware attack, probably from the photos or links to other articles.
Had wanted to share article as a remembrance on the fight against communism when I found out the article on the fight against communism has been attacked by malware. Best case scenario, I'll remove all external link. Worst case scenario, I'll copy the article to a new link.
7 Sebab Kenapa Kita Perlu Hentikan Pencarian MRCA

Local Defence Industry
Noted several noteworthy improvements made by the local defence industry which I must say have far surpassed what I thought it would be 3 years ago. Back then, the only key players were Deftech, BNS and SMEO. Today, we have a a few other noteworthy new players; Global Komited, Destini Berhad, Aegis Malinnov, just to name a few. And interestingly, some of these companies are self-funded. Some even garnered interest from foreign countries and at least 1 locally developed system had been approached by a foreign conglomerate for joint-venture.

Writing is a powerful tool.
I didn't expect this attention. This article has been viewed far many number of times than I had expected.
I received quite a few questions from readers pointing out possible errors, both in calculation and my understanding. No, I won't delete their posts if they correctly point out my errors. They would get credit for correcting me.
What I have decided to do is to engage with my friends from LHDN to check if my post is accurate. That is the only responsible thing I can do for all those who had read and shared my post.
Like any of you, I also dislike reading unsubstantiated posts. Thus, let me do the favour to verify this correctly.
Once again, I thank all those who had read and shared. Your support, be it just reading or criticising will help me to improve my writing.
Last, as a responsible blogger, I would like to remind readers to verify all information received with the proper SME, even if the blogger is me.

How Does Reduction of EPF Deduction from 11% to 8% Affects Your Income Tax?
Update: been receiving quite a few comments asking me on this post. Rest be assured I will try to get this answered. As I don't want anyone get into trouble for filing the wrong tax return, I've decided to ask my contacts in LHDN to vet through my interpretation. Any amendments will be clearly highlighted. Hope that helps.
