TERKINI – Exco Pulau Pinang Letak Jawatan

Dr Afif Bahardin meletakkan jawatan sebagai exco Pulau Pinang berkuat kuasa hari ini.

Tindakan itu dibuat setelah beliau mendapat surat tunjuk sebab daripada PKR atas dakwaan mensabotaj parti dalam kongres parti itu Disember tahun lepas.

Peletakan jawatan itu disahkan oleh Ketua Menteri Chow Kon Yeow.

Afif, bekas ketua Pemuda PKR itu bagaimanapun kekal sebagai anggota parlimen Seberang Jaya – yang disandangnya selama dua penggal.

Afif dijadual mengadakan sidang media berkaitan perkara itu di rumahnya pada jam 3.30 petang ini.

Sementara itu, pada masa yang sama, tersebar juga mesej di WhatsApp menyebut satu perhimpunan akan diadakan di rumahnya bagi menyatakan setiakawan kepada pemimpin itu.

Pesanan itu menyebut Afif akan mengumumkan arah tuju politik masa depannya.

Afif semalam berkata akan kekal dalam parti dan komited kepada Pakatan Harapan yang memenangi mandat untuk mentadbir Pulau Pinang dalam pilihan raya umum.

Beliau dikenali sebagai pemimpin muda daripada kem bekas timbalan presiden PKR Azmin Ali, yang terlibat dalam penjajaran semula blok politik yang meruntuhkan kerajaan Pakatan Harapan.

Afif dilantik sebagai exco kesihatan dan pertanian selepas mememenangi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) pada 2013.

Dia letak jawatan, bukan dipecat – KM

Sementera itu, di Komtar, Chow berkata Afif menyerahkan surat peletakan jawatannya selepas pertemuan mereka pada jam 8.15 pagi tadi,

Chow berkata, mesyuarat exco menerima peletakan jawatan itu.

Chow berkata pihaknya juga telah memaklumkan perkara itu kepada PKR dan akan membincangkan tindakan lanjut.

Dengan kerusi dipegangnya dalam DUN, Chow berkata Afif masih dianggap sebahagian daripada kerajaan negeri.

Ditanya sama ada Afif ditekan oleh PKR untuk berbuat demikian, Chow berkata:

“Dia letak jawatan, bukan dipecat. Jadi isu yang kamu bangkitkan tidak berbangkit.”

11 orang pekerja di sebuah tapak pembinaan di Tanjung Bungah berhampiran Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kampus Pulau Pinang masih hilang selepas kejadian tanah runtuh yang telah meragut 3 nyawa.

Dalam kejadian kira-kira pukul 8.50 pagi tadi, kesemua mereka sedang bekerja di tapak pembinaan kondominium berhampiran lereng bukit sebelum ditimpa tanah runtuh dari kecerunan kira-kira 10 meter.

Kejadian itu telah menyebabkan 14 buruh binaan asing dan seorang warga tempatan tertimbus sehingga sedalam hampir 35 meter di dalam keadaan tanah yang berselut.

Menurut Pengarah Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat Negeri, Saadon Mokhtar, dua mayat ditemukan pukul 9.15 pagi dan 10.45 pagi tadi manakala mayat ketiga kira-kira pukul 1 petang tadi.

“Firstly Islam was a NEVER a Religion of PEACE”, Apa Komen Kak Wan?

Is this PKR man sane and worthy to be a leader of our country?

Lately, making seditious statements is the latest trend for some people who wanted to be seen as a hero for certain group of people.

Latest is a former PKR ADUN of Batu Uban, Pulau Pinang, Raveentharan Subramaniam’s turn to do so.

“Firstly Islam was a NEVER a Religion of PEACE”, wrote the former PKR ADUN of Batu Uban, Pulau Pinang, Raveentharan Subramaniam on his Facebook page.

Raveentharan later posted an apology saying that he never intended to offend Islam.

However, how can such a direct seditious, malicious and rude statement on Islam was said as not “intended to offend Islam”?

In fact, not only does the statement offend the Muslims, but worst it can cause a racial tension between the Muslims and the non-Muslims.

It was reported that he will be investigated under Section 298 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.

Moreover, by saying that, “Islam was NEVER a Religion of PEACE”, Raveentharan has gone against the Section 3(1)(e) of the Sedition Act, which says:

A “seditious tendency” is a tendency— to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia…

By the way, what does PKR party president has to say about her man’s malicious statement?

And if Kak Wan and her allies say nothing, may I ask if that PKR agrees with Raveentharan Subramaniam’s statement?

PKNS Issue: An Example Of Good Governance?

The opposition leaders especially PKR leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim always preach about good governance.

They and their supporters always justify their illegal actions such as ‘BLACKOUT 505’ illegal demonstration as heroic actions partly because they claim that the Malaysian government does not practise good governance.

And of course they proudly claim that they practise good governance in Selangor and Pulau Pinang even if only their supporters believe their words.

Good governance is too important for them that some of Pakatan’s Muslim supporters feel that good governance practice is more important than Article 3(1) and Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution.

I wonder what are the good governance practices that they are so proud of?

Good Governance à la PKR. The image looks so 'kalam kabut' as the PKR.

Good governance à la PKR. The image looks so messy as the situation in PKR.

What kind of good governance is this?

The PKR leaders are fighting openly with each other like small children fighting for toys.

May be they should take a break and listen to what Michael Jackson said in his song, ‘Man In The Mirror’:

“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change” – Michael Jackson (Man In The Mirror).

What about their integrity?

Well, may be integrity means nothing to them.

The uncles from GABUNGAN ordered delicious ‘karipap’ and ‘spring rolls’ for the morning break.

We ate rice and a special Penang chicken curry for lunch.

The curry was very, very, very, very, very, very tasty but hot.

After the program the uncles from GABUNGAN brought lots of delicious durian for a durian party!

I enjoyed myself very, very, very, very much.

The program was reported in the Utusan Malaysia yesterday.

A Penang Prawn Noodle Lunch

I went to Penang last May.

Over there, I had ‘Penang Prawn Noodle’ for lunch.

In Malay, ‘Penang Prawn Noodle’ is ‘Mee Udang Pulau Pinang.

We had our lunch at a restaurant in Sungai Dua, Penang.


There is a big paddy field across the restaurant.

When I reached there it was very hot.

Then it became cooler because it was raining.

I think the noodle was too hot but my parents said it was tasty 🙂

There were lots of prawns in the noodle.

My sisters ate fried kuey teow.


My sisters said the fried kuey teow was very delicious.


We drank coldLai Chee Kang‘; a drink with ice, jelly and lots of other things.

I think the food at the restaurant was delicious but too hot and the place is very hot if it is not raining.
