ARTS: WHEN NATURE CALL..

20140930_150858 20140930_16222520141004_051518

It was a very inspiring evening that I have spent with Ardy Timmer,  she is a Dutch Nationalities and have been living in Malaysia for 13 years. When I read about this  art exhibition on FB, I immediately Private Message her and inform her of my intention to visit her  exhibition. To my surprise,she responded  and said that she will be waiting for me.

Her collections of artworks were actually exhibited at a nice Cafe in Bangsar, Jalan Telawi 3, Ashley’s By Living Food. It was launched on September  14th by Loes Nas,spouse of the Ambassador Of Netherland. On the same day, an environmentalist Matthias Gelber  gave a talk entitled  ” The Truth Behind The Haze”

Ardy, is truly an artist who paints based on what inspired her, she said that she felt the connection between her painting and the aura surrounding. When others draw to impress she does it to express.

Sharing more of her experience and thoughts, she told me that she recently had formed a small group of Art Appreciation Clubs in the pursuit of promoting arts in Malaysia.

Ardy..you are the best!

BACK TO NATUREby Ardy Timmer

The Back To Nature intends to show  my journey as a painter. From figurative works to flowers and landscapes in which I  express my artistic musings and through which I challenge myself on an artistic and personal level. At the same time, I felt the need to start exploring landscape as that was what I needed at that point in my life. As an ARTIST, I am intuitively guided by the deepest movements of my inner call calling..

 

PAS did not agree on EXCO cut ?

SHAH ALAM: Selangor PAS has denied suggestions that the party had agreed to reduce its representation in the state executive council from four to three.

Its secretary Mohd Khairuddin Othman said claims that there was a consensus among Pakatan leaders on the matter were not true.

“We were informed by the central leadership that they too never agreed to it,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Selangor Mentri Besar Azmin Ali said the decision to reduce PAS’ seats in the state exco was agreed upon by all Pakatan Rakyat leaders and that there was a consensus on the matter.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali, on the other hand, said the party accepted the decision, considering it a “sacrifice” that needed to be made to resolve the crisis in the state.

“We’re confident that he (Azmin) tried his best to balance the situation in the state.

“To us, this is another sacrifice that PAS needs to make so that Pakatan in the state can move forward,” he said in a statement to the party’s organ Harakahdailyyesterday.

Newly appointed state exco member from PAS Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi (Sijangkang) also said there must be some hidden blessing (hikmah) to the decision to reduce the party’s seats in the exco line-up.

“What is important is for us to move forward so that the people will benefit from the new administration,” he said.

Asked about the portfolio that the party would be given, Dr Ahmad Yunus said there was a need for all parties in Pakatan to discuss the matter as soon as possible.

There was talk that Azmin himself would take over the religious affairs portfolio instead of giving it to PAS because of pressure from DAP.

PAS’ Sallehen Mukhyi, the former exco member in charge of religious affairs, was one of the members from the previous line-up who has been dropped.

The new line-up was sworn in before Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah at Istana Alam Shah in Klang yesterday.

The additional exco seat was instead allocated to PKR, which only has 13 state seats compared to 15 each held by PAS and DAP.

The party now has four executive councillors besides the mentri besar post.

PAS has been given the deputy Speaker’s position, previously held by Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Seri Setia), who has been appointed an exco member.

“I have agreed that the position of deputy Speaker be given to PAS,’’ said Azmin.

Another big surprise was the reappointment of Elizabeth Wong (Bukit Lanjan) following talk – even during former mentri besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s tenure – that Rawang assemblyman Gan Pei Nei would replace her.

Besides Wong and Nik Nazmi, the other PKR exco members are Dr Daroyah Alwi (Sementa) and Amirudin Shari (Batu Caves).

DAP has maintained its status quo with Datuk Teng Chang Khim (Sungai Pinang), Ean Yong Hian Wah (Seri Kembangan) and V. Ganabatirau (Kota Alam Shah), while the PAS exco members are Iskandar Abdul Samad (Cempaka), Dr Ahmad Yunus and newcomer Zaidy Abdul Talib (Taman Templer).

Ringgit To Weaken Against US Dollar ?

The ringgit is likely to be lower against the US dollar next week as the greenback hits a four-year high against major currencies, currency traders said.

Hong Leong Bank senior manager for bond and economic research Choong Yin Pheng said the ringgit would lack the catalyst next week and would be looking at the US dollar tone for direction.

She said the upside support from the overnight policy rate outlook was losing steam and would likely continue pressuring the local currency from going forward.

“With higher interest rate outlook in the US holding tight and reinforced by gains in the US data, it is likely that the greenback would remain firm next week,” she said.

On a weekly basis, the ringgit declined to 3.2580/2610 per US dollar against last Friday’s 3.2330/2350.

It also ended the week mostly lower against other major currencies except for the euro.

The local unit depreciated against the Singapore dollar to 2.5645/5673 from last Friday’s 2.5515/5551, down against the yen at 2.9884/9917 from 2.9691/9723, and weakened against the British pound to 5.3193/3246 from 5.2957/2999.

However, it edged up against the euro to 4.1533/1584 from 4.1625/1664 last Friday. – Bernama, September 27, 2014.

Who will win in Pengkalan Kubor #PengkalanKubor ?

Who will repesent Pengkalan Kubor ?

Polling for the Pengkalan Kubor by-election will begin today at 8am at 12 polling stations and 45 streams in the constituency, after two weeks of low-key campaigning by the three candidates.

Barisan Nasional (BN) is seeking to defend the seat left vacant after popular three-term assemblyman Datuk Noor Zahidi Omar died from cancer on August 20. The coalition has fielded “Ustaz” Mat Razi Mat Ail who is expected to carry on his predecessor’s legacy.

Although PKR has traditionally contested – and lost – the seat, it made way for PAS at the height of the Selangor menteri besar (MB) impasse.

The Islamist party is expected to have a better shot at winning with its candidate, Wan Rosdi Wan Ibrahim, given that Pengkalan Kubor is one of three state seats in the parliamentary constituency of Tumpat, which is a PAS stronghold.

Independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary surprised observers when he quietly turned up on nomination day on September 13, but has since disappeared from the public eye. His presence is only seen in small signs by the roadside telling voters to vote for him with their pens – his symbol for the election.

PAS entered the campaign having strained ties with allies DAP and PKR over the Selangor menteri besar (MB) impasse, and it showed – the two parties have largely left PAS to its own device, in a departure from their usual cooperation during by-elections.

PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang also failed to attend the final, mammoth ceramah by Pakatan on Tuesday night, despite posters indicating they would be present.

PAS’s campaign was lacklustre because of the party’s annual muktamar, which saw most of the top leaders absent during the first week as they attended the 60th congress in Johor.

In contrast, Umno showcased its ministers and top leaders in the small border town, among them Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Ahmad Maslan, Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed and Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

Even MCA deputy president, Datuk Wee Ka Siong, turned up to woo the 1% Chinese voters in the area, while DAP leaders were nowhere to be seen throughout the two weeks of campaign.

State, national and afterlife affairs such as the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the oil royalty debate and heaven and hell have been at the forefront of the campaigns, while local concerns, and even the candidates themselves, have taken a back seat.

Mat Razi, 37, is a religious teacher and assistant officer at the Tumpat district office. He is also the imam of Masjid Kampung Simpangan and founder of a “pondok” or traditional Islamic school. The father of six is the Tumpat Umno division committee member and a graduate of History and Malay literature from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

PAS’s Wan Rosdi, 57, is a construction contractor and the Tumpat PAS secretary and Pengkalan Kubor constituency supervisor. The father of five graduated from the Institut Kemahiran Mara Sungai Petani in construction. His late wife, Saadiaj Salleh, was the former Tumpat PAS Muslimat chief before she died last year.

Izat Bukhary, 47, was a former architecture lecturer. He received his diploma in interior design from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) and is a graduate from Manchester University. Unlike his contenders, he is not a local; he was born in Kota Baru and now lives in Kubang Kerian.

This will be the second time Izat Bukhary has contested – last year, he won 65 out of 24,097 votes. He told reporters on nomination day that these 65 voters had spurred him to take another shot, at the risk of losing his deposit for a second time.

The busiest polling centres today are expected to be at Sekolah Kebangsaan Getting (1) in Kampung Getting, which has 3,555 voters, followed by Sekolah Kebangsaan Pengkalan Kubor (2) with 3,198 voters, and Maktab Rendah Sains Mara Tumpat in Tujoh, with 2,836 voters.

For early voting on Sunday in Pengkalan Kubor, 96.3% out of 109 police personnel cast their votes at the district police station. Only four voters failed to vote as they were said to be outstation.

Mat Razi is expected to cast his ballot at 8.20am at Sekolah Simpangan, while Wan Rosdi will vote at 8am at Sekolah Kebangsaan Bendang Pak Yong. Izat Bukhary will not be voting as he is not a local.

The Election Commission is expected to announce the official results of the by-election latest by 9pm this evening.

On the campaign trail, BN capitalised on the infighting apparent in PAS following its annual muktamar, as banners were erected quoting PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s fiery closing speech, where he took aim at the two rogue Selangor PAS assemblymen.

But while BN was able to boast about the aid the federal government had given to Malaysians, it also had to fend off accusations of “betraying” the Kelantan folk by depriving them of oil royalty worth RM13 billion.

PAS, with the help of pro-royalty non-governmental organisation R, has hammered home the message that voters must rise up against the tyranny of BN, as it has neglected to provide them basic infrastructure such as roads and a barrier to protect them from the annual year-end monsoon floods.

It also used religion to remind voters to cast their ballots for the party that represents Islam, as their actions in the voting booths would have repercussions in the hereafter.

Malays make up 92% of the voters in Pengkalan Kubor while Chinese make up 1%. There are 0.1% Indian voters and 6.8% Siamese voters.

Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said he expects more than 70% of the 23,929 ordinary voters to cast their votes today.

No Selfies at the Palace

KLANG: The Alam Shah palace has imposed tight security around the premises ahead of the swearing-in ceremony of the new Selangor Mentri Besar Azmin Ali.All visitors and vehicles were screened and those who were not on the guest list were not allowed to enter the palace grounds.

It is understood that the Palace had never been strict with the security before.

Most of PKR and DAP assemblymen were not seen inside the BalaiRong Seri, where the ceremony is now taking place.

However, Selangor state assembly speaker Hannah Yeoh was present, together with four former PAS state executive councillors.

The guests were also not allowed to take photos with mobile phones, especially “selfies”.

A guard informed the media that no photos were allowed in light of a photo of the rehearsal being leaked on social media on Monday.

Rahman Dahlan – The Python Catcher

TUMPAT: Despite the bustle of the hectic campaign for the Pengkalan Kubor by-election, Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan managed to do his civil duty and help capture a three-metre long python.

The Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister was giving a press conference at an eatery in Kampung Raja in Pantai Geting here, when he spotted the snake and alerted a fire officer.

Without wasting any time, Abdul Rahman and Kelantan Fire and Rescue Department director Azmi Osman hurriedly left the press conference to join several firefighters in capturing the python which had slithered away into some nearby bushes.

The captured python was then sent to the Wildlife and National Parks Department.

A villager, Wan Ali Wan Stapa, 57, said he would never forget the incident as it was the first time he had seen a Minister help to catch a snake.

“It is normal for firefighters to catch snakes, but it is different when a Minister rolls up his sleeves to do the job,” he said.

Another resident, Saadiah Awang, 50, said: “The Minister is truly brave to capture a snake. Even we were terrified to watch him and the firefighters in action.”

The Pengkalan Kubor by-election is being held following the death of BN’s three-term assemblyman Datuk Noor Zahidi Omar on Aug 20, who succumbed to cancer.

The by-election will be a three-cornered fight involving BN’s Mat Razi Mat Ail, 48, PAS’ Wan Rosdi Wan Ibrahim, 56, and independent Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary, 47.

Noor Zahidi retained his seat during the 13th general election last year, with a majority of 1,736 votes, beating Saharun Ibrahim of PKR and Izat Bukhary. – Bernama

John Legend Concert in KL

The US singer shows no sign of slowing down at his second ever performance in Malaysia.

Popular R&B star John Legend played a sold-out concert in Kuala Lumpur earlier today at the Plenary Hall, KL Convention Centre.

Legend, 35, was on top form as he played an intimate, unplugged set of his chart-topping hits like All Of MeYou & I (Nobody In The World)Ordinary People andSave Room to an appreciative crowd who, although seated, could still manage to move along to some of the songs.

The concert had sold out weeks ago, much to the dismay of many fans who were hoping to score a few tickets at the last minute. “The tickets are all sold out!! WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG #devastating #JohnLegend,” wrote one fan on Twitter, with several others voicing similar statements.

This is the second time the US singer has performed in Malaysia; Legend was last here in 2011 as part of the line-up for the KL Sunburst Music Festival.

On Sunday, Legend played a one-hour show in Singapore (pic above, taken from the singer’s Instagram account) for the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix event. Other performers who played at the event include Jennifer Lopez, Robbie Williams, Pet Shop Boys and Mayday.

The John Legend Live In Kuala Lumpur concert is organised by PR Worldwide.

KTMB Union – Please help us Mr PM

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has been urged to step in to put a stop to the spree of sacking by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), in his capacity as the Minister of Finance which overseas the rail company, said Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) vice-president J. Solomon.

Solomon said Malaysia does not have a positive image in terms of how employers’ treatment of their workers, especially foreigners.

“In past international labour conferences, Malaysia’s image and reputation has taken a battering as it has been ridiculed at these events,” he added.
