a new sport called leap frogging, etc etc and etc......



after a sumptious dinner at my good friend ts wae ming's under stated elegant pondok perched way up on a small hillock somewhere in taman melawati, ru, another old classmate of mine asked me cheekily to look into my 'crystal ball' at the future of local politics back home.
we by then were all high on nasi kerabu , laksa kelantan and an east coast delicacy called kueh akod that is guranteed to give one instant diabetes.....

ru, a veteran oil man,  who hails from the back water of melur, kelantan, but now commute between his offices in paris and bangkok,  has been an ardent fan of thai politics lately. so impressed was he about the progress of development in land south of singgoro, he thought we malaysians , especially our politicians, should take a leaf or two from them.

" nik howk, you should come over to singgoro....the thais , despite the brutal days of old during thaksin's time, has built a brand new large airport at narathiwat, even pilgrims can now fly to makkah even without setting foot to hadyai's international airport!
we back home, the kelantanese still need to fly to kl to do just that!...it is all about plying back the oil money  from the south back to the  south......we back home in kb still have dirty beaches and  crowded roads and zero wang ehsang petronas yet!....all going to your new home state,teganung....so rich that i heard from the grapevine the state  is going to build another brand new istana on pulau duyung,despite the recent new one  that cost 1.2 b of taxpayers money near chendering!...i hope this is just a rumour.....if this is a state project, certainly not good for the royalties at this point in time to be seen with excessive extravagance....state politician thinks only on a five year basis.....pea brain thinking", he opined.

" well ru, petronas wang ehsan is a long story and let us not open old wounds. 
i was not a big fan of tun m years back and you know that. 

now ru, i am a new tdm convert and why not..... anyone who can put that principal national clown and all his dirty associates all behind bars earn my respect......5 billion usd is not small change mind you... "
[  https://drnikisahak.blogspot.com/2018/06/tok-bali-re-revisited-ecrl-najib-and.html ]

" but ru, back to your request about me looking into my crystal ball, i think our host here, wae ming, could read balls better than me...we should ask him

after years of doing tafseer blog, i dont go crystal ball gazing anymore....i do not think it is sharie compliant!...... i have graduated to something higher... a much higher plane.....i read minds now!.....though i have to check with local ustaz whether it is ok  "

' ok nik howk, let us see what you read.....and i will check and tell you whether it concurs with what my  balls tells me..  i think i am more liberal than you...gazing at balls is still my passion.", wae ming interjecting , rather teasingly.

"ok ts ming.
let us start with the most principal of all players...the ultimate chess player as i call him today, our tdm.

rightfully or wrongfully, i know for a fact. and i feel it is 'soheeh' now that the old man cannot see dsai as his successor. otherwise dsai would have by now  some form of position.
bodoh bodoh he would be heading a committee of parliementarians looking at parliment reform or something.

dont ask me why, but i think tdm thinks malaysia is not yet liberal enough to accept a character such as dsai as the next pm!
tdm is also not yet liberal enough !

he is rocking the pakatan's boat by admitting the seven clowns from the old amenu including the one from jeli. ...shall we call them leaping frogs, though ibrahim ali is less complimentary recently in the cameroon highland bye election. he opined there is now no frogs in jeli , just jumping monkeys..'.beruk melompat '......i say monkeys here just to be civil and polite.!

tdm thinks he can get more 'jumping monkeys'  to his side, but for the present , 7 is enough.  
the old man is playing his future moves close to his chest. he is a consumate chess player, i am sure you guys can agree with me on that...

unlike what you guys think about doctors having all plans a, b and c, well scrutinized and thought off well ahead...actually a lot of our work involved ad hocking along the way, adjusting and adapting to the ongoing ball game and tempo of play. we as a specie, like to play god more than the rest!

tun m is just doing that even though he has a general plan, he also ad hoc a lot and only when it is necesary.....the exquisite and exact timing of when to adhoc...that separates the master from the rest of the boys!.

any evidence of an implosion occuring in pakatan from the joint partners, dap and pkr, will set things in motion. the old man is an expert at both controlled and organized implosion and uncontrolled,disorganized implosion. 

his training starts way back in langkawi when you,  ts ming and ru  and myself, were still running around in our kain lamping........diapers was still unknown then!


i got words that one of the 'jumping monkeys' right now are even nursing an ambition to be the economics minister. he is already assuming the  present one will move one step up!..omg! that is presumptious of him.
but that is politics...but on the positive side, that reflect however his professionalism. the present economics minister is still not on the ball.....still fighting shadows.

my contacts within the grapevine tell me yesterday this jumping monkey is trying to garner in some 'economic' brains to be in his think tank already! 
so very ambitious this 'jumping monkey'.....and so sure.

down the scale we have dsai, the man who wanted to be pm even ages ago while in mckk.
i reckon if  an implosion within pakatan harapan does not happen as expected due to the dap wanting to stay in the cabinet at whatever cost, and we certainly cannot rule this out as they have been waiting for this opportunity to be on this side of governance for over 50 years!.
their marraige with pkr is just a marriage of convenience.
if this happened, our man  dsai here will be very much left in the cold!..
an implosion will happen in pkr itself, weakening it by half!

the ultimate chess player has this consideration in his mind....remember you ask me to read minds.
he is also prepared for a totally disorganised implosion ie dap join force with pkr and go against him .

he would go for the rest of the 'jumping monkeys' and at worst may even call on the ugama party with the headless chicken running it to join force!

with azmin and his band of followers..... dap and whatever left of pkr can go and fly kites!

here tdm will be  in slightly deep water, ru and ts ming.
will the rest of the jumping monkey from amenu join him?

this is where the semenyeh factor comes in. 
this is a wee bit sakit perut for the old man.
bng may win semenyeh and will have a new found confidence.
no more jumping monkeys or leaping frog! bng with PAS may be the next gomen..come ge15

if bng lose semenyeh, tdm can tell dap can go and fly kite if they do not want to play the game his way....he can still govern. "

"ok nik howk, so far i can agree with you....and that is what i see things are unfolding...the only sadness would be after all these, institiutional reforms will never come to fruition...but  then tdm is tdm, ..leopard never cxhange its spots.",
our gracious host interjected. " 

ru, who has been quiet all this while finally added his brilliance.
"reform will finally come ts,  i think, with the proviso future governments do not have the two third majority..give them time...the catharsis is not yet over. "

" on that count i do agree with you ru......the common man on the street will continue to complain  and make loud animal noise since that roti canai and tea tarik still cost more than 3 ringgit and toll has not come down and petrol is going up and up........but how can these come down.?......your man in the economics ministry still so busy with his personal problems playing politics, he has not even met all of his inner team yet to devise schemes. 

lge and tony pua are  still in a 'digging mode' and both still suspicious of their wholly bumiputra treasury top dogs , things are not moving....and the rest of the ministries are run by still wet in between the ears ministers who cannot differentiate between the wood and the trees! ", ts ming opined..

" frankly ts and ru, i hope bng wins semenyeh....that would put ph into panic station.
frankly i dont care whether in 4 years time azmin or anwar become pm or hishamuddin become his deputy or rafizi goes up in the cabinet........we the raayat deserve instituitional changes and reform and that will come with time and a lot of catharsis... we have to bersabr.
what we do know is that a repeat may 13th is an impossibility in this new malaysia.
the raayat don't care who become pm.

we want a corruption free government and if  along the way we have royalties behaving well and spending within their limits, this is tantamount to a bonus for the raayat.

in 2019, post ge14 ......it is not about the elites anymore...if you guys want to stay in power you better look after pak mat nyadaps and ah lee and muthusamy very well....otherwise ship out"

with that we conclude the evening on a high note.....

clever bastards this digital robbers!.........



friends, dato and tanseri,


clever bastards these digital robbers!
they conned me of rm19,500.50 just now about an hour ago.
their timing was very exquisite.

i just came back from umrah a week ago. my brain still racked with virus, my body aching all over especially my back from too much tawaf, and i was just finishing my last patient at the clinic in sjmc when there was a ring and a voice saying he is from high court kuala terengganu

" what is the matter? i dont happened to querrel or hit anyone in terengganu as far as i could remember? "

" no sir, but you have a high court case tomorrow in kt, subponae number blah blah, you better write it down........blah blah blah. it is public bank versus nik isahak wan abdullah, you have a credit card non payment of rm 40, 500.50 etc etc etc "

" i have no credit card with public bank....."

" you better speak to our officer sir...", another 10 minutes with a malay speaking gentleman, who at the end of the conversation surmised that i could probably be victim of  a fraud.
omg! what a way to put oneself into confidence

he took my statement for the court and said he would ask for adjournment of the case tomorrow.
he told me he would transfer the call to pejabat kontinjen polis kt , and after some delay got thru to the specific department.

i gave my statement to an 'indian' asp this time over the phone.
after sometime she said this is above her head, i also need to give statement to her 'boss' acp dato tan.

"please adresss him appropriately sir as he is my boss, tuan, would be appropriate i think"

" dont worry asp, i will call him dato.."

"doctor we recently caught a chinaman, ong ka tim, we suspect is a drug dealer. your public bank book and credit card are one of the 40's we collect from his keeping.......blah blah for another 15 minutes......" we need all your banking details as this also involve checking with bank negara blah blah blah "

" i don't have my detail with me now, let me go home and you call me back"

after 1 hour of conversation these bastards already have me 'goreng'!

"for the next 3 days or so we and bank negara need to monitor your account closely, so we will be in contact with you every 4 hours.....i am giving you a number here and you need to change your banking hp for these period of monitoring say in half hours time.
we will you a sim card by fast mail, and after the operation you need to send back the pin card to the department..", acp 'dato' tan sounds very convincing.

lo and behold while having tea at home at 4 pm,, i told my indonesian maid about it all.

" noor, some drug peddler in terengganu has got all my ic detail and using it to open a bank account under my name...the police and bank negara are handling it now~!....bloody bastard these people!"

then i realize it could all have been a fraud! a robbery only possible in this age of digital banking!

" sorry doc....they have taken 19,500.50 rm from your acount. they leave you with 20 rm....just 20 minutes ago....do you want to make a police report? ", said the pleasant looking cimb officer, matter of factly.

" it is ok marm.......i will go and have tea tarik downstairs at the mamak shop with that  remaining 20. rm.....then i will forewarn all my friends. these bastards are so good and suave.
they 'goreng' me today. "

this is digital robbery.
i would not waste my last 2 rm for even a police report.
innallillah hiwainna ilai hirojiun.
my dear mrs will hang me for weeks on this one!
the clever , plausible robbers have their day today.
insya allah i will have mine in yaumiddin!

'what is not mine is not mine, even when it is already almost past the throat!'
mashallah!

i still have my life to whisper to allah, alhamdullillah!

when i told my sons , nadzru and johan about my misshap over a late dinner,
johan consoled me,
" it is ok dad.....you still have your life"

alhamdullillah!
the family umrah has not been for nothing.

of apples and oranges........part 2





friends, dato and tanseri,


the more i listen to shaykh dr haitham al haddad's discourse on talaq, the more i can appreciate the degree of difficulties these boys in jakim, mais , maik etc and etc are faced with. 

they are a favourite punch bag for most ladies and even men!
talaq is a last resort, but islam ,unlike catholicism and to some extent judaism, recognizes that  marriages are not made in heaven.
some marriages are bound to fail due to mismatch ete etc  and etc....thus allah give us the privelege of talaq.

in england of ole it is not uncommon for the lords and barons to cement their wives into the walls of their castles, or arrange for them to be killed or poisoned!
such barbarism which still exist today in different forms....

listen carefully to the shaykh

Talak is rapidly going out of date. It was 'useful' in backward and tribal societies where women are considered second class, and men bully and ill-treat their women. Talak came from a 6th Century desert tribal society. 

But today , with science and technology changing society and economic arrangements within it, talak surely faces an inevitable and well-deserved challenge from thinking minds.  With women well educated and able to work (many are accomplished professionals and earn high income (and pay tax) would talak not be exposed for its imbalance, unfairness to women, and its blatant misogyny? 

Surely it has no place in a 21st Century society - where  women are equal before the law, are well educated, and are respected by men.

It is up to us in each society to think of the most fair and human solution for ourselves, right?  Why should we allow ourselves to be dictated today by people who lived in the past, and under different circumstances and level of enlightenment? Should we not bear the responsibility ourselves for our own lives?

Surely this is so obvious!

let us roast them all by the balls............







yang amat berbahagia tun,


allow me to extend our deepest appreciation for what you have achieved so far , for the nation, in your second coming.

and today you did put an excellent show at oxford.
as an astute  clinician of over 40 years, i was even trying to find fault  with your breathing...are you in early heart failure etc etc......and there was none. 
tun are in good health., alhamdullillah!

your rebuttal of what ails the muslim ummah with respect to leadership is superb and to the dot.
if i am one of the rulers doting the muslim nations , peppered around the globe, from timbuktu to brunei, i would  pee in my trousers!

jokes aside, i must admit that i was never one of your greatest fan . 
i must sincerely admit to that.
your dear mrs, tun dr hasmah could attest to that as i wrote to her a provocative letter many years back, during the ai-dr m debacle in the late 90's, when you were still at the pinnacle of power in your previous premiership.

admitted, at four score and thirteen, you have very little precious time left.
at your age and even mine, a year is like a decade.

people below you, pardon my expression, don't seem to have a clue ....we are worse than we were during the east asian economic crisis.

the ' benua chinese '  has their dirty hands on 'our balls' and not about to release their pressures.
their price is still 22 billion rm to be paid in one month!
they want their pound of flesh
they are worse than shylock of old!

jho low, if he is  still somewhere in china, in all probability he is, is probably down to his underwear now!......i would not be surprised of that.
the chinese politburo knows where he is.

china is highly militarized and police state. they even have registers for all 'cochroaches' and 'lizards' moving in the country.
it is highly impossible .for them not to know about this malaysian 'cochroach'.
' you pay 22 billion rm first, and we will hand over this cochroach that you want!'
in the mean time whatever jho low has will already have been milked out.
that is china's position.

ntr, insyaallah,  would not see the light of the day beyond the bamboo river resort, we all hope.... and we hope no monarch worth his salt, in future,  would have the audacity and temerity , to pardon him.
he should be and should remain a supreme example for decades to come for all malaysians  aspiring to be leaders, politiicans  and wanting to hold high office, to be reminded never again to repeat this kind of  utter nonsense

ringgit malasia, is a lost cause......kuala lumpur will be inundated by cheap hermes, birkins and prada in the flea market....there is not mch to be had there.

beyond both of them, my humble opinion is that a long jail term for all the other accomplices, from sri samarihan to lahad datu to kuala perlis, and the list is  certainly voluminous, would not solve our problem.

it is a wee bit expensive to keep and feed them at the resort nowadays.....there are too many of them.
and furthermore judicial justice will take years.......

let us figuratively 'squeeze their balls' where their money is.
we have to squeeze all these clowns dry to pay for their crime to the raayat.
get back every single cent possible.

people can  call it by any names, plea bargaining etc and etc.
they have to pay for their complicity in the world biggest financial fraud of all time.
.
after that give them the option of them going off to their overseas palaces and condos or else offer them free accomodation at reduced years in  bamboo  river resort.

let us start with sabah and sarawak and downtown kuala lumpur
there are some fat  cats there and here in KL.

i mean let us start with people having  acombined household bank account above 500 million rm , and then percolate down slowly but surely to the lowly  saeregars and the fendi's.

....of course not forgetting the 1amgedebe ceo, nasikandaapakahnamadiadah, who should spend the rest of his life in jail.

a very big jump from a 0.5 million rm per month numero uno, to room without a view at bamboo river resort.

at my last research, the average occupancy in a malaysian jail is usually 5 to 6 to a room, and they sleep elbow to elbow.....toilet is jst a hole in the ground at the right hand corner.
when someone pee or b.o, the rest have to look the other way.

we look forward to seeing him there.....6 to a room.
dsai was pretty lucky as he spent most of his time in the sick bay, akin to staying in a 25k rm a night presidential  suite at the st regis, sinapo!



sweep them carefully like a comb, tun.
we will forever doa for you both , dunia akhirat!
insyaallah.


warmest regards and may allah bless you and tun hasmah with a long and healthy lives!

At a Zakir Naik event, a Malay woman asked the preacher,

"ln the election there are two candidates - a Muslim who is incompetent and corrupt, and a non-Muslim who is competent and honest. Which one should l vote for?"

Naik replied, "Of course, you must vote for the Muslim. If he is corrupt he will answer to God."

I saw this remarkable exchange on YouTube.

years back we used to lose every theological debates with the trinitarians..i can still remember that.

that seemed to be their life ambition and total preoccupation.
even your good friend syedharijumaatapakahnamadiadah also thought so!.


then came along ahmad deedat of south africa who knew the injeel  in all it's variations, old and new,and the taurat, like he knew  the back of his palms.

that was well before utubes and  misshapps and facebook!
we started winning debates

zakir naik is 5 times better.
he knows the qur'an, the bibles and all its variation
he knows bhagavid gita, and all other hindu scriptures better than the hindus 

oftentimes i ask myself why only we muslims have to be  so apologetic when we are  winning in the intellectual discourse...

is not ugama an intellectual discourse?  a search for truth...
and we are all looking for truth, not heresays from ulama, scholars, priests or monks...


just because a few ignorant  and biased hindraf people  are making  'animal' noise out there, we have to apologise and incarceraste the 'postman' !

I have watched his videos. You are right - he does know his scriptures well, and can quote it in accurate detail. It attests to an understanding of the text, and an unusually good memory.

However, it is well to bear in mind that memory is only the capacity to retrieve information. It does not necessarily imply logic or contemporary good sense. 

I have listened to his answers to questions posed by his many admirers. The less l comment on his values and good sense (as l perceive them) the better.

Doc,

You must acknowledge that many, many Muslims in this country, even leaders, idolise ZN, and swallow uncritically everything he says as their 'belief nutrition' . This is what l find unpalatable. Perhaps you too might agree. 

Nothing that another homo sapiens says can merit total acceptance and uncritical adulation. Nothing. Wars, genocides, bigotry, backwardness, and untold cruelties and bloodshed, are all created by such kinds of uncritical acceptance and lazy thinking.

Some have argued that the Peloponnesian wars (4th Century BC) had been earlier carefully examined and debated. Up to a point, yes. They were - but only by the Athenians, who were a highly civilised and intelligent community. (Socrates and Alcibiades were among the soldiers.) But their enemy, the Spartans were among the worst hooligans of the time. (They later formed the core of the army of Alexander the Great of Macedonia.) 

Since then, wars and bloodshed had always been created by unthinking mass belief and hysteria. Because thinking through war issues, one can always find solutions that lead to peace. This is something warmongers and bigots do not like to see.

credit must be given when it is deserved, dato.
you are not generous with dr zakir naik .

there is a science in religion, known as 'science of  apolegetics', propounded by the christian missionaries many decades ago to brow beat the muslims

they already had beaten the muslims in africa and asia and dominated them  physically and financially,but intellectually they have to devise a science to brow beat them at the mental level as well....thus the science of apologetics....

until ahmad deedat arrived on the scene  and brow beat the best of their pastors and ministers.

now that we have dr zakir naik who has a background and capacity times 5 times more than  the late ahmad deedat, why do we socalled muslims want to apologise!!!!

i cannot understand your rationale.......

Hello doc,

It is strange that you should ask me to read about the Spanish lnquisition. Perhaps you do not know that l had spent four years at an ancient university studying Economics and Philosophy (and that included European history, including the Spanish lnquisition, and the backwardness and cruelties imposed by religion). 

As an undergraduate, I had also spent a whole summer in Spain, exercising my Spanish language, and visiting museums where l saw the actual instruments of torture used by the Catholic Church on scholars who used logic to think, or ask simple questions on the "teachings" of the Church. They sickened and horrified me to an extent you can never imagine. I discovered at that young age that reason and religion simply cannot co-exist. 

To quote to the well-known Nobel laureate in Physics, Steven Weinberg:

"Good men will do good things, and bad men will do bad things. But to do really, really bad things, you need religion."

By 'religion', one must also include beliefs and ideologies such as Communism, which has no room for honest enquiry and respect for logic and evidence.

hello dato,

it is obvious we are apples and oranges.
by religion i mean personal faith.
faith in a god that is concurerntly personal as well as universal.

in my scheme of things, if i am in your position i would be feeling really depressed.
i am going into that 6 foot by 2 foot hole in the ground and i am confident there is no posterity  at all for me!

no accountability. no heaven and no hell...
beginning to sound like john lennon's paradisal home  high up in the sky! 

what is keeping me going now at even a relative young age of 66 is that hope , minute as it can be, but still a  possibility that in my other life i will be in ' a mansion that rivers of honey and milk flow underneath and i would have to take my  private jet just to survey my musang king estate, etc and etc...." 😊😊😊

.....on the contrary if i dont do well in this transient earthly life i will  be ' a bouncing baseball oscillating from in the  oven of hell , up and down , up and down, a journey of which is equivalent to 50,000  earth's years'😎😎😎

that description is not  from dante's inferno mind you dato ... . i think it is ibnu qayyim's, correct me if i am wrong.,

it is figurative of course dato.
hell or heaven, whatever it may be....it is certainly figurative beyond our comprehension, but certainly heaven and hell is not a metaphor.

in your world it sounds pretty constrictive,definitely depressing  especially when we go beyond our 3 scores and ten!

tell me dato how can i change your position?
really, i am sympathetic to your predicament.


dr nik
