Lies that need to be corrected....once and for all!

The most uninspiring former Malaysian PM and his second wife! What did we do to deserve that!


The young Maria Hertogh with her Malay parents


There were two news items that caught my eyes and to the best of my knowledge they were untrue, which also means lies and a total sad and pathetic fabrication.

One is the news on the death of Maria Hertogh, a Dutch girl who was given by their Dutch parents to a Malay couple for safe keeping during the war.

The other was when ex-prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who was quoted by the Star as as saying: "Alhamdullillah (thank god), I am grateful to Allah that the person I chose to replace me has carried out his job well."

Let us keep the record straight here, Abdullah took long while to name his successor after he was made the 5th prime minister after Tun Mahathir. He did and never wanted Najib to be his deputy. He went against his word to take Najib immediately as his deputy upon being appointed as the prime minister to succeed Mahathir.

Well I beg to differ, he did not want to choose Najib to succeed him if he had his way. He was forced by Umno leadership, especially Tun M, to name Najib as his deputy and later his natural successor.

By far Najib is a better leader compared to Abdullah, and Najib with or without Abdullah's blessing can do a better job of managing the country well. Abdullah cannot take the credit for what he imagined the person he chose, has done his job well.

You can tell by this blog that I have no desire to respect Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as one of the ex-PMs of Malaysia, as I have my respect for Tunku, Tun Razak, Hussein Onn, Tun Mahathir and now Najib, why should I lie to myself, I have to live with me.

On the same note I do not see why his second wife had to be conferred the country's highest honour of Tunship?! What has she done for this country to deserve such honour except for marrying an ex-PM who has brought problem for my beloved country during his tenure as PM?

I am speaking from my heart and if any one find this posting to be a bit harsh I suggest he or she can go somewhere else. Thank you!

On Maria Hertogh, when I was in Amsterdam in the early 70s I was approached by Maria Hetogh's grand children, (and later saw her in her pathetic person she was an unhappy frail woman who has nothing in common with her "adopted" country Holland)

They were asking me to write a letter to the Dutch authority to ask for a better accommodation for their grandmother (Maria). You see Maria Hertogh was nevcr happy as reported in the NST and she was living in the home of the age in Holland.

Then the NST wrote about Maria Hertogh who died a happy woman, but the other fact is she was never happy in the country where her natural Dutch parents came from.

I agree with you and to add Pak Lah can't even be counted as one of us for he got Chinese blood in him.

Well agreed,

I know personally of one "Tun's" wife who could not even read a single sentence may it be in BM or BI, let alone put her own signature on the cheques she signed!!

Yes, at times I too often wondered, the allowances bestowed upon her.. with the millions around her, if only she could have contributed more to deserve the tittle!!

Tapi biasanya, the kids AND in-laws including the BISANs will be the ones going around with even higher tittle than their tittle holder!!..

JANGAN MARAH, CAKAP YANG BENAR.. My in-laws termasuk dalam golongan ini.. hehehehe

Like you, I never regard Abdullah as my and the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

I fully agree with you that Abdullah was never in favor of Najib to be his deputy.

It is Tun Mahathir instistance that Najib should be made his deputy that he finally endorsed after few months being in office.

To say that Najib is his protege, I said this is to claim credit and to cover his failure during his tenure as PM.

It appears he is not sleeping any longer..hehehehe...

Tun M chose DS Najib and not him but he is trying to claim credit for Najib's ascent so that the latter will be grateful to him and continue to dish out favours like a Tunship here and there, carrots for his son-in-law, contracts for his son.

you want to glorify Dr Mahathir, go right ahead. You want to say you have no respect for Pak Lah, go right ahead. End of the day, if you have substance, people may respect what you say. Now thats a big, big IF!

Menurut Harakah (lidah rasmi Parti Islam), kes Natrah membuktikan sisi negatif Parti Melayu ketika itu dalam aspek pembelaan terhadap agama rasmi. Betul ke?

Sebagai pemerhati, saya tidak berasakan apa yang berlaku puluhan tahun yang lalu dapat di jadikan bukti kegagalan mana-mana pihak dalam mempertahankan isu Natrah dari sudut pegangan dan anutan.

Kalau semudah itulah Parti Islam berhujah maka dalam konteks yang sama apakah kejayaan kuasa asing menjajah di Bumi Nusantara akan dikaitkan dengan kegagalan orang-orang terdahulu mempertahankan ibu pertiwi?

Atau dalam konteks yang lebih luas, apakah adil untuk menuding jari kepada pihak pejuang agama terdahulu kerana gagal mempertahankan empayar/tamadun ummah yang berkembang pesat itu?

Sungguhpun PI nampak terbeban susulan kehambaran dan kelesuan dalam merealisasikan impian terutama membawa negeri-negeri PR ke satu tahap yang lebih menggambarkan jenama yang digunapakai, namun adalah menjengkelkan kalau mereka menggunakan isu yang tidak berkenaan bagi menjustifikasikan kehambaran dan kelesuan mereka itu. Walhal, persepsinya ialah, kehambaran dan kelesuan tersebut lebih disebabkan oleh terlalu tunduk kepada percaturan rakan sekongsian dalam pakatan pembangkang!

"On the same note I do not see why his second wife had to be conferred the country's highest honour of Tunship?! What has she done for this country to deserve such honour except for marrying an ex-PM who has brought problem for my beloved country during his tenure as PM?"

Did she marry the Man or the Position?

She was given the Tunship because she married the Position..No meritocracy for that...

Same as when the University gave a Doctorate to Tun Abdullah Badawi.. Did he work for the PhD, i.e worked on a theis etc etc? No... He got it because of his position..So did his wife..Period.

Your statement "..Pak Lah can't even be counted as one of us for he got Chinese blood in him." is ridiculous. As long as one got part Melayu blood, he is a Melayu - please ask Tun M and other mixed Melayu how we are classified.


Mixed Melayu

Mat Sentul said...

PPTD is organising a dinner at PICC at the end this month and AAB and wife are the guest of honour, PPTD members have to fork out RM100each ....and until today I was informed that only a few confirmed to attend. Most of the officers refused to attend the said dinner because to them AAB did nothing good for the country and he doesn't deserve a free roti canai or teh tarik let alone a cozy dinner at a reputable place like PICC. Remember Halal Development Industry Corporation or HDC, it was formed during AAB as PM and millions of RM wasted. Everybody knew who is behind HDC. Luckily Najib acted fast and now the halal certification was handed back to Jakim

Pasquale said...

Mat Sentul you appears to know the inside story appreciate it. I believe Malaysians should just ignore this apparition called AAB, he now wants the ISA to be repealed, it is easy for him he to say so for he can always scuttle to Perth once this country is in a state of chaos!
