Singapore Warns Malaysian Politicians Not To Interfere In Its Domestic Affairs

The Star reported that Singapore warns Malaysian politicians not to interfere in its domestic affairs.

In the article, DAP’s Kulai MP, Teo Nie Ching argued that “the person she was fighting for was unfairly punished” by Singapore, adding:

“It’s not that we want to interfere with (Singapore’s) internal affairs. If (the one person) only attended one protest, then that is unfair,” and that Singapore’s reaction was too harsh.”

But I thought that PR leaders, members and supporters especially DAP and PKR always praise Singapore as democratic, not corrupted and love the country till they use a Singapore-like flag for their Sang Saka Malaya.

But now, after their supporters were punished for taking part in an illegal protest, a DAP’s MP said that Singapore is unfair.

How confused are the PR supporters that they think they can also break the laws of other country as what they are doing in Malaysia.

I think if the incident happened in Malaysia, they’ll organise another ‘Candlelight Vigil’ and more demonstration asking for freedom of speech and calling the government as undemocratic.

Below is the report by The Star:

Singapore warns Malaysian politicians not to interfere in its domestic affairs


PETALING JAYA: Singapore has warned Malaysian politicians to stay out of its affairs, in the light of the arrests of 21 Malaysians for demonstrating in the island republic.

A joint statement by the Ministries of Home (MHA) and Foreign Affairs (MFA) said demands by Malaysian Members of Parliament for Singapore to let off those arrested was seen as foreign interference.

“Actions to involve foreign parties are attempts to seek special treatment and to further politicise what is essentially a domestic law and order issue in Singapore,” it said in a statement on its website.

Singapore added that it had always taken a strong stand against foreign issues or politics brought into the island nation.

It added that it did not interfere in domestic affairs of other countries, and expected similar treatment in return.

Previously, Malaysians gathered at Singapore’s Merlion Park on May 8 and 11 to protest against the May 5 general election results.

They were a rendition of the Blackout 505 rallies that took place in major cities around Malaysia.

On May 11, 21 Malaysians were arrested by Singaporean police. The work pass of one and visit passes of two others were revoked. The remaining 18 are currently being investigated by authorities there.

Several Malaysians have since approached their political representatives, including DAP’s Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching, for aid.

Last week Thursday, several Pakatan Rakyat MPs also petitioned the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur for leniency against the 21.

Meanwhile, in response, Teo said she was only fighting for the one whose work pass was revoked, arguing that the person was unfairly punished.

She said that the particular person only attended one rally, adding that Singapore’s reaction was too harsh.

“It’s not that we want to interfere with (Singapore’s) internal affairs. If (the one person) only attended one protest, then that is unfair,” she said.

Teo said that eight of the 21 had approached her over the matter, and with some telling her that they accepted their punishment.

She added that there was a spate of miscommunication in the episode, and asked Singapore to re-investigate the case.

“We’re only pleading for the one person…I don’t think this amounts to interfering. They are Malaysian citizens, and we have a duty to them,” she said.

Micheal Jackson, Spiderman and Transformer At A Flea Market

I was looking at the things around the Amcorp Flea Market.

On Sunday October 30, 2011, I went to a very popular flea market in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

This is my first visit to a flea market ❗

The flea market is held in the Amcorp Mall building.

It is a very interesting and fun place to visit 🙂

The good thing about having the flea market in a building is, in Malaysia it is so hot and humid.

So it is nicer inside a building where there is air conditioner, unless when there is no electricity 🙂

There are lots of used, old LPs & EPs at the flea market.

We stopped at one stall that sells a lot of Micheal Jackson‘s LP & EP and over there we saw Micheal Jackson!

I saw Micheal Jackson at the Amcorp Flea Market!

There are lots of people especially at the ground floor which is the most interesting part of the flea market.

It is so nice to see so many interesting old things.

I even saw an old machine to mince meat that do not use electricity.

This stall sell old iron, photos, meat mincers, paintings and lots of other old things.
Old tricycle, stroller, bag and more at another stall.

People also sell all kinds of other old, used things like old iron, glasses, stroller, tricycle, telephones, clocks, books and lots of things that I have never seen before 😉

Old telephones, typewriter, sewing machine, clocks and others.

On the upper floor I saw a lazy Spiderman sitting on a chair and an immovable Transformer standing beside him.

Maybe Spiderman is very lazy and only during danger he’ll stand up  🙂

And the Transformer was talking to the Spiderman and telling Spiderman not to fall asleep because he(Transformer) cannot move, so he cannot do anything when danger comes  😉

The lazy SPIDERMAN and the immovable TRANSFORMER.

I hope that I can go there again because maybe there will be more interesting stuffs for me to see 🙂

Stamp Fair In PJ

A 5 cent stamp from 1965 Malaysian Orchids Definitive Series.

There was a stamp fair in Petaling Jaya, Selangor on March 12 and 13, 2010.

The fair was held at the Perpustakaan Komuniti Petaling Jaya or Petaling Jaya Community Library.

I went there on March 12 and went there again on March 13.

There were a lot of stamp dealers at the stamp fair.

I was looking at the beautiful stamps.

I bought beautiful stamps from Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah.

Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah is a stamp dealer from Penang (Pulau Pinang).

Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah was explaining some interesting facts about stamps.

There was a stamp display by the Philatelic Society Of Malaysia.

On the first day of the stamp fair, I won a lucky draw.

The prize was two first day covers from Pos Malaysia (Malaysia Postal Service).

When it’s time to go home, Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah gave me a set stamps of Lady Diana.

The stamps shows photos of Lady Diana’s visits to different countries.

My Lucky Day

On Saturday 27/3/2010, I went to an EssoMobil petrol station’s carnival.

Last time Esso and Mobil are different companies.

The petrol station is between KPJ Ampang Puteri Hospital and Flamingo Hotel in Jalan Ampang.

There were lucky draws, free balloons, foods, drinks, a clown, colouring contest and others at the carnival.

My father bought a Mobil 1 motor oil and I get a white Porsche Boxster Collecters Series free.

I got three balloons.

And we won a BIG hamper from the lucky draw!

Then we went to a wedding in Petaling  Jaya.

Over there I met the Chief Minister (Menteri Besar) of Selangor.

His name is Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

He is from PKR or Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

MPH Warehouse Sale

Yesterday I went to the MPH warehouse sale in Petaling Jaya.

The place was very big.

There are books all around the place.

I went there to buy books.

We spent 4 hours over there.

I went there with Kaman, Mama and Abah.

My 2 other sisters did not go to MPH because they were at school.

I read 5 books over there.

I read 3 Bob the Builder, 1 Barney and 1 Thomas.

The best was Barney Easter Eggs.

Bob The Builder were too simple.

The words were too big.

I also drank a can of Yeo’s tea.

My father bought lots of books.

My father bought me some books too.

The best was ‘Diego and Click take a Pic‘.

It was about Diego’s camera named Click.

The book shaped like Click the camera.

I love it very much.

I enjoyed going to MPH sale because I love to read books.

Reading good books is a good practice.
