Another By Election

From The Star Online today

Permatang Pasir assemblyman dies

GEORGE TOWN: Penang state assemblyman for Permatang Pasir Mohd Hamdan Abdul Rahman died at the National Heart Centre in Kuala Lumpur Friday morning. He died at 6.10am.

Mohd Hamdan, a two term state assemblyman and former Penang Pas commissioner, was 60.

He leaves behind a wife and six children.

A Penang government spokesman said Mohd Hamdan's body is expected to arrive in his constituency Friday afternoon and buried there.

In the general election in 2008, Mohd Hamdan beat Umno candidate Ahmad Sahar Shuib with a majority 5,433 majority to win the seat.


Another by election is coming up, at another PR's stronghold.Will BN contest this time or chose not to like it did during last by election?

I remember Allayarham Hamdan as the person who defeated Dato' Ahmad Saad, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim's Deputy at the UMNO Permatang Pauh.

A Little Rambling Here and There

A lot of things seemed to have taken place these last two weeks or so:

1. MU -the By Election, not the football club (though more of that later in this post). So, as expected BN lost again to PAS. But what was not expected was the slim margin by which PAS retained the seat. In one of the online news portal, PAS was very confident of garnering a majority of at least 2,000 votes and with voters turnout of more than 85%, it was a possible. However, it never happened and PAS (and PR too) start to throw this accusation of money being handed out by the BN etc.

Oh, come on lah...

2. MU, the football team. No, I am not a supporter of MU and I don't really give a rat's ass on the EPL. Yeah, I have some affinity for Liverpool when I was younger but I am more into the local league.. true blue Selangor Fan.

It's always great to have your team in town, but please, you are Malaysian first and MU fan second.

I need not elaborate, the Malaysian coach K. Rajagobal has said it all about how the stadium was silent when Amri Yayhah (yeay, Selangor player!) scored the equalizer.

3. The Fall from 14th floor. Please la stop politicizing this issue and let the police do their job.

Logistics Update

Excerpts from Starbiz, The Star Jul 7, '09

"Trans-Asia Shipping Corp Bhd (TASCO) plans to buy a property for RM41.8mil from JVC Manufacturing Malaysia Sdn Bhd in Shah Alam for use as a logistics centre"

Is this the JVC plant near the famous JVC roundabout in Shah Alam ? Another factory closing shop?

On the other hand, that piece of property is perfect for TASCO's logistics hub.

My own logistics hub ? Hmmm... visit this blog again in 5 years and we'll see :)

My First REAL Home Made Pizza

I finally made my own pizza from scratch.

I am just crazy over pizza. My whole family can attest to it.

The ready made pizza base and using ready-made pasta sauce just won't cut it for me, so I decided to surf the net and search for recipe for making pizza dough and pizza sauce.

Just to cut it short, I tried both recipe and it worked out beautifully!

Here's for more home made pizza to come!
