Subsidi Cintamu

This is my first Malaysian Language song so instead of posting it as flash sound which is in mono sound, I prefer to post it as YouTube video which is stereo.

Subsidi Cintamu means ‘Your Subsidized Love’.

Song and Music by Azer Mantessa

I apologize for my voice sucks big time as always … LOL

Obviously, I’m getting too old to sing rock … LOL

Just a matter of time, I have to completely stop singing ... LOL

Warning: Do listen to this song at your own risk. I cannot guarantee your ears won't fall off. My singing is the worst ever ... LOL ... To those who are prone to heart attack, please don't even try ... LOL

Kau berjanji tidak akan memberikan kesusahan
Setelah dirimu dipertaruhkan sebagai pilihan
Dengan tak ku sangka kau tak mengotakan kata-katamu
Tidakkah kau ingat pada kegagalan di masa lalu

Seharusnya kau fahami
Dalam jiwa disemadi

Kau berdusta pada semua yang mengharapkan padamu
Walau kau bagaikan telur yang berada dihujung tanduk
Sedikitpun tidak kau hiraukan kepayahan yang lain
Penderitaan kami sengaja kau buat main-main

Seharusnya kau halusi
Tidak terus kau yakini

Kau beralasan pada rentak dunia
Mengasihi dengan subsidi cintamu

Kau fikir kau bijak dengan menyusun segala langkahmu
Apakah kau fikir kami sedikitpun tak akan tahu
Kepura-puraan yang kau berlatih untuk dipentaskan
Penipuan dan pemalsuan yang akan engkau lakonkan

Terimalah suatu nanti
Engkau akan dipinggiri

Raja Petra Kamarudin

As previously mentioned, I’ll be promoting citizen journalism throughout my third year in blogging.

Adapted from Wikipedia:

Citizen journalism, also known as public or participatory journalism, is the act of citizens "playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing and disseminating news and information." The intent of this participation is to provide independent, reliable, accurate, wide-ranging and relevant information that a democracy requires." Citizen journalism is a specific form of citizen media as well as user generated content.

The term citizen media refers to forms of content produced by private citizens who are otherwise not professional journalists or online-journalists (Ooppss, they do call themselves as bloggers).

I however prefer to promote those who are not in any political party BUT do blog on any political issues. Also I prefer to promote those who are on side of Individualism, Anti-Elitism and Anti-Racism or Anti-Racial Based Political Party.

Raja Petra Kamarudin

Blog-wise, I’ve known Raja Petra and his blog Malaysia Today about three months once I’ve started blogging. Without question, I’ve missed a lot of his writing. Paper-wise however, I’d followed his articles when he was writing for The Sun which is distributed for free (the only paper I ever bother to read and simply because it is free).

Raja Petra is an accountant by profession (if I’m not mistaken). When I was doing the Risk Management Consulting business, Raja Petra is also quite known to us in the industry as he managed various management programs and seminars which I attended.

As a blogger, Raja Petra is phenomenal. No matter what the readers are saying about him, especially those supporters of The Elite Party and The Elite, I view him as a man who fights for Malaysians as a whole.

To those who are interested in Malaysian Political Scenarios, Raja Petra’s Blog is a must:

The Racist

This entry is serious and I apologize for not being able to make a little humor out of it.

This entry is based on a racial remark by Hamidah binti Osman (MP UMNO/Barisan Nasional, Sungai Rapat, Perak) at Perak State Assembly:

“Indians are worse than snakes.”

"There's a well-known Malay saying that goes 'If you see a snake and an Indian, kill the Indian first.' Do you agree or disagree with it?"

Protests against her remark are raised and I recommend these links for further reading:

The Origin of Racism (According to Abrahamic Faith)

Perhaps she has that sweet look so any fool can easily be fooled by the look. By the remark, without a slightest doubt, she is a racist. How to describe the real look of a racist?

To describe the real look of a racist, one ought to go back into time and re-look the origin of racism.

It goes back to the beginning of mankind's creation. This new creation of God was created from clay and named Adam. After his creation, God ordered the Angels and those with them to prostrate to Adam. They all prostrated except Iblis. Iblis believes he is better than Adam as he is made of fire while Adam of clay.

Without question, the Devil was consequently the world's first racist! Racists do have these “Pride and Arrogance” which lead to thinking that they are better than others. Pride and arrogance are truly Devilish traits which humans have learnt from Iblis. Having learnt something from Iblis, what makes racists?

Yes, Iblis followers.

They have to be. You see, racism is not human nature. Don’t trust me?

To those who have kids (Racists are excluded although they may have kids), may sure notice that ANY BABY WILL SMILE OR LAUGH at ANY PERSON who make ANY KIND OF FUNNY GESTURES. Since all babies are humans in pure form, racism then is not human nature.

The Look …

So how do racists really look like when they throw away their racial remarks?

They can be described in many words:


Too many words I must say. In short, the description is not nice at all.

The Character …

Not only racists have that satanic looks every time they speak their racial remarks … they too share their common Iblis trait … they love to whisper.

You see, it is Iblis’ nature to whisper because whispering into the hearts has been a very good strategy. So when not speaking openly in the public, racists do group with each other and speak among themselves the satanic whispering way … their racial remarks or statements or jokes and racists will do their satanic giggling way which of course make them look …


The main objective of racists doing all these whispering is to spread HATRED, DISGUST, ANGER and other SATANIC FEELING toward those who are not them and at the same time to build their SATANIC PRIDE, ARROGANCE, SUPREMACY and other SATANIC CHARACTERISTICS among themselves.

Strangely, as previously said, racism is not human nature. So what went wrong?

Humans fall for the age-old trick of Satan and start playing the silly inferiority/superiority game. Some stereotype others and tolerate prejudice against other human beings, despite the fact that all human beings are equal, from the same man and woman.

Since all babies are not racists, racism then must have started during the upbringing and influenced by the environment.

The Upbringing …

Since racism is originated from Iblis, there must be some reasons on why racism started.

You see, before Adam, Iblis enjoyed some kind of privilege and the major one was being the righteous among all creatures. The creation of Adam however has given some kind of competition which led to two very extreme feelings in Iblis – JEALOUSY AND PRIDE where the former is an extreme INFERIORITY FEELING while the latter is an extreme SUPERIORITY FEELING.

Racists then must have grown up with these two extreme feelings.

The Environment …

Why does it not surprised me a bit that racists like Hamidah binti Osman are from a racial based political party like UMNO?

The Living Contract - Racism Is Against God

Quran: Nisa’a, 1:
"Reverence God Who created you all from one person".

Quran: Rum, 21-22:
“Signs of His Power are His creation of heaven and of earth, and the varieties of tongues and skins; in all of which are sermons for the wise. And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colours. Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge.”

Quran: Al-Hujjurat, 13:
“O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allâh is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. pious) . Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware”

Quran: Aali-Imran, 6:
“He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise”

Quran: Ghafir, 64:
“Allah, it is He Who has made for you the earth as a dwelling place and the sky as a canopy, and has given you shape and made your shapes good (looking) and has provided you with good things. That is Allâh, your Lord, then blessed be Allâh, the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).”

Quran: At-Thghabun, 3: “He has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and He shaped you and made good your shapes, and to Him is the final Return”

The Effects of Racism

There are many racists in this world. Historically, when the like of Hamidah binti Osman give the racial remarks at state level, national level and international level, bad things do happen – street violence, torn wars, the lost generation, waste land and other bad things.

The Last Sermon of Prophet Muhammad

O people, Remember that your Lord is One. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a black has no superiority over white, nor a white has any superiority over black, except by piety and good action (Taqwa). Indeed the best among you is the one with the best character (Taqwa). Listen to me. Did I convey this to you properly? People responded, Yes. O messenger of God, The Prophet then said, then each one of you who is here must convey this to everyone not present.

With this, I as a blogger have conveyed.

I have posted another video with a song titled Deepak Gopi.

The Living Contract

The recent fuel price hike has taken everything I have wished for. The Family had decided to go slow on retailing and halted all planned Small-Medium Industry development.

I was called during the weekend and they have decided to utilize my utmost skill in Risk Management for the whole connections.

“The Living Contract” is the combination of all my blogs. Hopefully it suits my working schedule. As I have to put my business thinking back to the previous stage I was before, blogging stays.

You see, running businesses is not about linear thinking but ABSTRACT THINKING. That’s why writing songs and now doing animation is highly important to me. Given today’s prices of the commodities, given constraints on what constitute a product, then make the cheapest product. You see, solving problems is about having some kind of imagination.

As always, I have learned a lot. Special thanks to Dayang, I value this one the most: The earlier period of menstruation – go max and winged; Later period of menstruation – go slim. 20 years as a husband and a father, finally I got this one correctly. Obviously, I’m ignorant type.

So Elite, you see, there is more into blogging than meets your reading :-)

I am glad to start my third year with this video.

Too many things are happening now. Politicians of all sides are now actively exposing things. Though only at the beginning, we are yet to see more. The favorite chess move opening has commenced.

Meantime …

The Elite are getting smarter than ever. Though they lost the 2/3 majority, still they have the power for many prerogative decision-making. Blogging then is getting even more relevant than ever.

You see, mass action these days can be very frustrating and I believe it will stay that way from now onwards. As said, the Elite are getting smarter and they have learnt ways to overcome problems given by mass actions. Oh yes, they have learnt a lot from HINDRAF, BERSIH, The Lawyers Walk and soon … The Fuel Price Hike Demo.

Why am I saying the Elite are getting smarter?

You see, though the demos launched effectively and were major facts behind the lost of the 2/3 majority, only minimal improvements are achieved. Obviously, the kind of improvements we keep seeing are actions taken to strengthening their own positions and groups. Mass actions then have never really reached the top heads.

So what am I personally going to do about this?

I have tried countless times to voice out my opinions to the Elite themselves as nowadays, they too blog. Unfortunately, my comments have never been published because the way I look at it, they hesitate to publish any negative comments against them. What even disgust me more is that, certain journalists and known writers back their postings up all the way.

Rather somehow, this kind of situation has never surprised me a bit. From the beginning of my blogging activities, I have already described both groups as brothers-in-arms.

I’ll be promoting citizen-journalism by participating more in blogging with those non-journalist and non-Elite. I foresee the future of citizen-journalism is getting brighter as society itself is getting individualistic. With citizen-journalism over journalism by journalists themselves, I do see the possible change where the mass in general can come to conclude any form of changes. Only when once the mass have the ability to conclude, the mass can become more independent. Once the mass can become more independent, the Elite can be directly be shaken. Of course too, journalism by the journalists can be irrelevant :-)

When the power stays in the hands of a limited group of privileged individuals (The Elite), most humans will remain secondary citizens. So it is time to change. Let everyone has some power.

Today … my second year of blogging … completed.

I have posted another music-video of sort titled “Bersama Selamanya (Together Forever)”.

We are ready when the sun shines
To the river, to the gold mine
Gold or silver, copper or lead
Treasure hidden in the earth bed

Working with our own hands
Blessed by the motherland
This is our story
This is our glory

This is our dear lives
The love for our wives
This is our story
This is our glory

So the miners work all out mining
Passionately with their every breath
Helping growing up the nation …
