Stock Watch : JTiasa and MudaJaya

JTiasa : When KYY mentioned he bought at RM2.04, it rebounded and went all the way up to RM2.70 ... CPO was rebounded sharply then too ... from 2200. Today, CPO is going below 2000, it is 5-year low at current level. Yes, CPO is oversold ... tracking soy-bean prices. How will this CPO price level help JTiasa. JTiasa is not a main plantation counters ... but a huge timber-player.

When JTiasa was trading at RM2.62 in the beginning of July, RHB maintaining their BUY call, with target price at RM2.95. So, from the chart ... RM1.95 will be a good entry as we are having a RM1 discount, right? By the way, RM1.95 is CIMB's target ... latest RHB's target is RM2.41

AMMB placing BUY call with target RM3.16 ... so, we have 2 - 1.

Plantation counters not in favour ... so, I have avoided and sold all my plantation(and related) counters.

Mudajaya : Closed 2.16, broken the important RM2.20 support ... I will need to check why there is such a sell-down. It must be the bad quarter reports or such. Then, perhaps some IBs downgrading her ... etc etc. When a stock dive in such a manner, something must be on ... so, we must check before we catch a knife? I am seeing this a trading opportunity (besides my Armada and Ecoworld).

So ... where do I start? Begin with 'bursamalaysia' website to check on announcements.

bad quarter report(as expected)

see ... the EPS from 8.50 to 0.62. That is bad. So the sell-down.

Reported of share buyback too. Do check the bursa site.

Next will be ... checking Mudajaya at i3, as Mr KYY might be writing something about MudaJaya as he invested in it. By the way, he is the founder of the company. A highly respected person ... so, I will seriously consider MudaJaya as I trusted him. Being a trader, we need to follow the 'SM'.

Then ... check the broker reports ... those target-prices many retailers interested. That will take me another 1-2 hours.

If the stocks diving sharply, check the noises made by those regulars in forum ... especially the losing-money part. Some might curse ... blame somebody else. Some never-heard-of forummers will start to emerge, to voice their displeasure due to losing money. Many more negative remarks will be thrown to reflect their disappointment. I do use forums to check on noises.

Time for dinner ... and hope to continue ...

Merdeka Day : Freedom

Our country is 57 today ... we have progressed, but we are still way behind in many aspects. I will not mention about it ... as I want to find happiness in myself ... and to have that, I have to let-go of knowing how our beloved country being used and abused by many parties ... over the 57 years. Hey, I was not born then ...

Putting Merdeka-Day sentiment aside, I will want to write about a very subjective topic : Happiness.

Each day, when we woke-up ... whether we are ready or not, we have to run-the-day. Are we taking control of the day ... or let the day running us? There is quite a significant difference in the both. If we are to be "happy" ... we want the freedom to take control of our day!!

As happiness is subjective, depending on our definitions ... there is no right-wrong here. I saw a line yesterday "Argument is to prove who is right or wrong, but discussion to find what is right". Interesting. Because the moment we started to argue that ... by doing this-that, I will be happy is too energy-sapping and defeating the main core purpose of being happy! Ironic.

Listening to the above clip ... making us to think about what is negativity and how we could stay a little more positive each day ... activating our positive mind, sharing positive vibes.

Listing down the ingredients needed to be HAPPY ... it is endless. Many of the elements we thought of are shallow and on the surface. For example : I will be happy if Liverpool win the league. Some take 'happiness' in seeing others in pain or losing. For example : MU lost and some Liverpool's fans cheering that.

I do know I will be delighted if Liverpool won a game. But, that is not happiness. That is a temporary surge of cheers in us, not embedded in our heart.

To be free ... that is the road to happiness? Financial freedom? Freedom of speech? Freedom of thoughts? Freedom in every sense to individual? Is that really what happiness is? Do we feel it in us ... and it stays with us for ... long-long time?

So ... let us discuss about one of the ingredient that could lead us to have some satisfaction ... and perhaps, happiness. It is FREEDOM.

Our country is MERDEKA ... that is what it meant. Freedom!! Not control by British or Japanese. Not to be intimidate by other countries ... and free to vote, govern whatever way our elected gov wants. Our country's progress depending on the freedom we were given ... and it could easily that we abuse our freedom?

As I m writing about financial ... I want to write about financial freedom. Something elusive to many of us ... it is just like a dream, something we yearn for, we thought it will bring us happiness? Well, someone told me ... "I would rather cry behind BMW's wheels rather than a Proton's". Haha. He got a point there ... but I do wonder how many of us prefer to drive a BMW rather than Proton? All of us? But ... that is not the point. Are we financially free ... driving a BMW or not? I could be reaching my financial-freedom path without driving a BMW, but to continue to drive a Proton.

There are many out there ... living in debt. They might be well-paid, but they are still employed. To maintain their lifestyle, they have to work. The stress in them ... being translated into more using to money(that they earn) to fill the emptiness in them. True enough ... those who earn more, will use more. That is a rat-race, climbing some ladders ... fittest to stay etc etc. That could be very stressful, but we will rationalize that it is a norm --- to be stressful. Afterall, we are well-paid and expected to be able to cope!! Are we happy inside doing that? We could not ... as we are not ''free''. We have to play by the rules, bounded by rules and un-written rules ... we have to toe the line etc etc. That is why most of us employees could not be free.

When I was being a lecturer ... there are some things I dislike to do. For example : during at Inti, we are supposed to wear a neck-tie. Simply dislike those piece of cloth hangin on my neck, and I have to remember to wear it!! Heck with the colour and matching with my shirt I m wearing. Imagining ... in the morning, we need to know what tie we supposed to put on, matching with our shirt, pants, socks, shoe? Gosh ... I only have a pair of sock and shoe, anyway!! While in Taylors, we do not need to hang ourselves ... phew ... we are a little free. So, a little happier for me. Today, as I m not employed ... err ... I wear simple t-shirt, a jeans or Bermuda-shorts. At home, no need to wear also can. That is freedom ... I know I m not allowed not-wearing anything once I m out of my gate because ... that is "not our culture". I might be saman for indecent exposure. yeah ... this is Malaysia, we still could not be naturalist as it will be seen as disturbing keamanan. Hmm ... I do not mind being naked or join those groups(wear underwear only can la) but why share those clips everywhere, right? So, in term of clothing ... I have the 'freedom' to certain extent.

As employees, we are not free in many senses. Depending on companies, most employees do not have their say. We will be seen as the 'rebellious one' and not in good-book of our bosses, it might jeopardise our chances of climbing up, or our increment/bonus might be affected? So, we toe-the-line.

We always think that we could work till we retired(55 .. now increased to 60) and then we are free from working. But, are we financially free? The cost of living will certainly be higher. The medical fees ... tuition-fees for child(ren) ... daily living expenses. Is our saving and retirement funds enough for us not to work and could cover all our expenses, commitments?

These are questions I posted to myself about 6years ago. The answer is simple : NO.

Financial freedom simply means ... we do not work for money. We do not need to worry about the amount of money in the bank as we have sufficiently enough for years and years to come, even if we do not work. As I m frugal, and also adopting simple living ... it will be slightly easier for me to achieve my ''Financial Freedom" stage. I do not need to drive a BMW ... and I do not need to cry behind Proton's wheel!! Haha ...

So, we all should define our own financially-free state ... start to plan on it, and achieve it. It is a long road ... but it is achievable. Freedom ... many of times, we took it for granted. That explain also why some are not happy, even they are basically free to do many things, or having more than enough ... to be free. They are trapped in their own mind .. their wants, their greed ... their power-craze personality. Happiness is not being measured by the amount of freedom we could attain. It is more of how we feel happy being given the freedom. Yes, being grateful, appreciative ... thankful ... will help. Instead of complaining of what we do not have, we should thankful with what we have. We have the freedom ... of ..

I m not a happiness guru. It is something we could not teach others to be ... it is a choice!! But, one of the element to be happy is FREEDOM.

Enjoy the current freedom ... and work towards a goal of financial freedom. MONEY could not buy many things, that is true. But ... without money in current world, we could not be free either?

I want to have the freedom to write ... I do not want to bother about what others might be thinking. That freedom to write whatever in my own personal blog is mine. Tho I know it is publicly viewed(and I still hv to think of those unwritten rules) ... I will still want the space ... and freedom to express.

Being a blogger ... I enjoy writing. My English is not good(I do know la) ... but that is not the point. I want to be happy writing whatever I want, even if I do not have a reader at all. Freedom to express ... in my own words, not bothering about others views ... that is part of my happiness in blogging. Without ulterior motives, without arguing with others ... I want to feel the freedom of blogging.

Yes ... I want this free blog-space back ... and to write more of analysis, slowly I will move to use facebook group. Then, this trading adventure might become my life-adventure, rather. Hehe

Happy Merdeka holiday to all.

God bless.

A post for my aunt, SK

I have spent about 2 hours to write/read about Ecoworld and Armada. It is a hobby ... things that I like to do whenever I am 'free''. It is a long weekend, and I m down with flu after whole day of going places. Well, I spent my day ... visiting my mom(after a month!!) and bringing her some moon-cakes. She will always say ... 'don't buy those moon-cakes, it is over-valued and not-worth it. But, if got people gave u as gift, I wont mind la' ... so, at least next time I know that I could buy her some of her fav type of moon-cakes but need to tell a white-lie? hehe ...

My mom does not read my blog ... my aunt SK does. Well, so ... as I knew she 'might' be reading this post, I will want to dedicate this post to her ... my 'ádopted' mom. We bro/sis will be bringing her for a lunch gathering tmr ... and I will be so glad to see her. I am not sure ... I came back to KL(from KK) also mainly because my moms are 'old'. They have been with me when I was young ... naïve, naughty and such ... and being more able today, I wish to spend time with them in their remaining years ... we could never know when we might no longer around. So, I do not wish to regret ... that I did not spend time with them ... when they needed me to be around them. Well, my kids are their grand-kids too.

This is something I could not explain ... even to my wife. I just feel that I owed them too much ... especially my aunt SK, who has been with me ... always helping me whenever I m in 'trouble' or needing assistance. She is always concern about my being ... and, it is from her I derived human values. Kor-kor, if you are reading these lines ... I want to say a big "THANK YOU".

Don't worry ... I m not shy to tell the world, the surrounding ... that I owed  much of my good beings ... from your good teachings. I may be the odd one, the not-so obedient type. I may have always wanting to do things my ways ... but, deep inside me, I do carry your words and teachings ... on how to appreciate lives, how to be a good human, in general.

Do you remember the day you advised me to 'drop' the add-math when I failed badly when I was in form-4? It was your whisper to me ... your concern that spurred me to work extremely hard in my Math as I knew I was not good in Math back then. I was too playful ... and not focusing in my school-works. I admit I was a 'lost' kid ... but, your kindness shone .... and opened a path for me. Your caring heart touched me ... and I promised not to let you down. I slogged, I struggled ... I cried. I wanted to prove to the surrounding so much that I am good in my Math, and to make you proud. You were a Math-teacher. How could I not good in the subject?

So ... I did it my silly way ... I worked for hours daily, in improving my Math. Yup ... I scored well in Math there after.

Do you remember ... when you said "it is very hard to enter local university being a Chinese?". I knew we were financially poor, you supported us with your small primary-school teacher's salary. I appreciated the struggle you have sacrificed for us kids. So ... I went on to prove to you that I could do well enough in my STPM to enter local Uni. I was lucky ... I went to Malaya to do my Math degree. I was 'mature' enough to give tuition and trying to make-end ... thanks for being there to support my Uni years .. yeah, with aunt SP's help too(and my sis).

Uni over ... working time. I was ''lost'' again ... but you have been keeping track of me, always. You are concern of my being ... being such a caring "mom" to me. How lucky I am to have you ... to know such caring and kind person. If I m to tell ALL ... how patient you have been towards everyone around, including me ... I will place you high-up there as the best 'model' of a good human should be. Never taking advantage of others ... listening to others, being a peace-maker ... and so much more.

I was so lost ... not only broke, stressed ... I want to 'escape' from all. I left KL ... but, I really miss your 'caring'. I knew I have to grow-up, be independent(merdeka and bebas?) .. and not to trouble you anymore. Time passed ... I was there in KK for 10 years. I could never be able to make it, without your encouraging words.

Do you know why I am back to KL? Besides my job, better living for my young family ... it is because of you. Yes ... I want to be with you as you fully retired. But, it was such an embarrassment to you and family(I felt so sorry) .. that I was broke. I came back with nothing in hands, no gifts for loving you ... but more burdens. I should not have troubled you ... but, naturally ... you came to my rescue.

You bought me the RM100 mattress as I do not even have a nice place to sleep. You came all the way to help me clean my new rented place. You pushed some cash to me, knowing that I was totally broke ... I did not show to you that ...  I cried. I felt so useless ... being at age 40, but have been living on your kindness. Yes ... again, your re-assuring voices to me ... sending a strong message, telling me to be strong and still believing in me that I could pull it thru(again?).

That was merely 4 years ago ... today, whatever I have achieved(and aiming to do), I owed that to ... you. I could never be able to re-pay your kindness. BUT ... I knew you are proud of me each time I done some charity-works!! Yes ... that is my driving force ... besides that is what I wanted to do, anyway.

You gave me the greatest guidance. That is how huge your influences on me, as a mother. Being with me since I was very young. I will always take your words as my own words. I will tell your stories to my kids when they are grown up. I will want them to appreciate you too. Without you, I am nobody. I may have strayed so much ... but, each time I did ... you pulled me back to the right-path.

Anyone with love for their mom, appreciating their mom's deeds ... doings, might understand how I am feeling. More than being grateful ... more than anything, you are always my light.

Please allow me to be closer to you ... as I want to spend time, understanding you as you have done for me. I could never be able to do enough, but the least I could do ... is to bring some cheers and smile in you. You are too kind ... to all. You are the light for many, and you have sacrificed enough. For now, I will want you to read this post ... which I written for you, as I have wrote thousands of post about stock-analysis which you do not understand about. Yet, you are there to know a little of my doings. Do not need to be ... call me, anytime ... I will be there for you.

Being Asians, we may not show our affections towards those we love ... but, I simply do not wish to contain my emotions to few beloved ones. You are definitely meant a lot to me.

Today ... I want to make you a proud 'mom'. It is not a mother's day. I never believe in such a day, anyway. To me, everyday is a good day to tell our mom that they meant a lot to us. So, you are in my thoughts, my mind.

I will continue to do well ... I will take-care of myself, as I want to take-care of many too. I will want to make you prouder ... when I could able to do more charitable work, and learn about your kindness in giving. You have my highest respect of ... what a good human should be. I will certainly wish to be a good-human as you have taught me to be.

I will want to hug you tmr ... and tell the world how you gave me LIFE ... and to live.

Thank you for being in my entire life so far. No one could take away this pride.


Pre-merdeka sales : Ecoworld and Armada

I have been out the whole-day ... with running nose, and needing to rest soon ... but I will like to check on some of the stocks I do like to re-trade as there are some merdeka sales going on ... so, I will use some of my time to check on the latest news related to these companies.

Ecoworld : Support RM4.50, closed RM4.69 now. I have traded her and the last time I sold was slightly above RM5, but it went to RM5.40. Ever since that multiple cooperate-exercises announcement ... it DIVED from high RM5.80 level.

24th APRIL : Suspension for announcement



Target Prices : RM7.60(CIMB), RM6.24(AMMB), RM6.59(Maybank) and RM6 (Alliance).

Now, we need to THINK ... it is under-valued? To me, Ecoworld is playing on future-news ... how Liew & gang could turn Ecoworld to become another SPSetia? Personally, I will prefer SPSetia (buyg should be below RM3, when Liew was leaving in April). So, Ecoworld is tradable ... we can profit from Ecoworld's price fluctuations, being a trader ... but not to hold for ... err .. long term? Long term is 1-3 years in my definition.

Armada : Closed at RM2.95, with the right-issue announcement recently.

Bumi Armada: Prices rights issue at high discount. Bumi Armada‟s rights shares have been fixed at RM1.35 a piece, which is a 32% discount to the theoretical ex-all price (TEAP) of RM1.98 per share. Based on this issue price, the rights are expected to raise gross proceeds of RM2bn. The rights shares will be issued on a one-for-two basis, involving up to 1.48bn shares. There is also a bonus issue of up to 1.48bn shares, also on a one-for-two basis. Bumi Armada‟s exercise is expected to be completed by the 3Q of this year. This is Bumi Armada‟s first rights issue since its listing in 2011. The RM2bn proceeds will likely be used to fund the group‟s huge capex pipeline. Bumi Armada currently has a tender book of some RM25bn. (StarBiz)

IPO : Bumi Armada debuts at RM3.65 for 62 sen premium over IPO price. So, the IPO price was at RM3.03.

Then, it is trading below its IPO at the moment!! This that a discount? If anyone been holding Armada at IPO below, and did not take profits (HIGH RM4.44 ... die-die-die), then should we be going through the exercise, pumping in more funds into her, believing in investing into the company? Afterall, it has HUGE order book?

OUB's target price : Bumi Armada’s 1H14 results came in below our and consensus expectations, accounting for merely 37.0% of our and 32.2% of consensus full-year estimates. That said, Bumi performed better on a qoq basis, bolstered by contributions from its Eni 15/06 and Kraken floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) projects. We retain our forecasts and re-iterate our BUY recommendation on the stock as we anticipate a better 2H14. Target price: RM4.00

Website :

We need to do some works on the biz, the share holders and much before we decide to invest in the company, and putting in more money into a company. Are we investing ... in the future of the company? Dividend-wise, it is definitely not in that category. So, to put money into her and averaging it down(assuming we are holding at IPO value), we really need to believe it will do well, in the future. PER at 20+, it is not "cheap". But, I do not really believe in taking PER as a good yardstick.

This is the weekly chart, to show the huge selling volumes for the past 3 weeks. Last week was the highest as I believe it is the end-of-month selling(by EPF). As a trader, I m seeing this as an opportunity to collect ...

Using technical, I will try to catch the knife ... and wish me luck. See if I will get burnt.

IJacobs : This one also look nice ... 42cents support ... target is 70cents? great ...

Iris :  At 34 cents now, dropping 7%

Iris : At low 33cents ... some panic-selling, it rebounded to 38.5 ... cool!! Without these interesting counters, KLSE is a boring place to trade?

Note : If u r reading this post from i3-portal, it will not be updated even if I update it. So, you need to go to this blogspot. I do not go to i3 but was told that my blah-blah blog still linked to i3?

Relaxing day

Good morning ... cool, wet morning today. Staying at home ... alone. Listening to nice song, and going to watch another DVD.

This clip was dedicated to me by a member. Well, I met him during my Penang-trip. Nice humble person ... driving nice car. My first time inside XF. Haha ...

end-of-month ... with students going for exams, I will be more free to be at home, to do my personal work. That is the 'joy' of not being employed ... rushing for 8am-9am classes, and work whole day. Today, I hv the flexibility of TIME ...

12noon ... I will be fetching my gal from kinder, then ... bring her for lunch. The moments spent with my young growing kids is invaluable. A good balance of work-play and family ... that is what I am thriving for.

These day, I do have classes at nights and e-meeting too. But, I blocked my Sundays ... no more classes on Sundays, please. Slowly, I will be letting go the nights and to be with my kids, to guide them in their homework. Yes, it is all about priority of lives.

Since I managed to free myself from the crazy rushing for classes (plus tonnes of paperworks, endless) ... i could feel 'free' from those senseless stress of morning rush, jam ... so, I started to appreciate my new 'freedom', but I do still need to bring in some income?

Besides giving tuitions, I do trade short-term ... earning some small money.

Example : SEAL reported badly yesterday ... this morning, it gapped down, dived ... I bought 1.15 and 1.19 ... too fast, and sold 1.21. Done. It went to 1.23 ... zzz ... I am out, and time to watch movie. Yesterday was Efficien and the day before was PDZ.

Time for "Avengers"

Networking : Road to financial freedom?

I went to attend a gathering sort-of networking group. Interesting ... as it is my first time I dared myself to open-up myself to 'public' and strangers. Well, I was a loner(I still think I am today ... tho I have changed so much and got to know hundreds of individuals) ... dislike crowds ... dislike hee-hee-haa-haaa ... dislike selling ... dislike salespersons ... and more comfortable being left alone, only with few nice/good company around.

But ... I challenged myself to attend and speak!! Yes, we were given 5 minutes to introduce ourselves. Basically, it is a good platform to SELL yourself!!

For example, a person working in "RockWill" trying to make presentation about why we should write a will and can contact him?

For example, another person speaking about his ".com" biz and where if we help him to sell certain products, we could collect 'points' etc etc ...

But ... what I am selling? haha

This man is our main speaker ... he speaks about "Law of Attraction". Interesting person ... and will be attracted to know him more as he is involving in micro-E to SME. So, I will like to know more about him ... and get to know him. See? The Law of Attraction is working here ...

I am a believer in "LOA" ... focus in what you want to achieve,

I started my 5 minutes talk, nervously about ... saying "Hi ... I am TEH". I was a lecturer for past 25yrs, teaching Math in college level. But, recently I quit my job ... and now doing a full-time tutoring job. With two young kids, it is scary to quit my job ... actually, I am also a stock-trader. Blah-blah ...

I used this concept to explain ... I was full-time lecturer, back in KK with salary below RM3.5k, plus a little from tuition classes, which falls in S-quadrant. That was just 5 years ago. I was broke ... so, I went into stock-markets, thinking of I-quadrant ... as my mindset was shifting to the right-side (B & I). I failed the keropok-biz(B) and lost most of my small capital in 2008-crash (I). 

But ... my determination(do or die?) to succeed is strong than my failure ... I pulled myself up, re-focus and then ... continue to learn. I planned to move out of the E-quadrant 5 years ago(one may read my 5-years ago posts?) ... and yes, I took the plunge 2 months ago!! I did it. Haha ...

Now, I am inside I-quadrants ... and doing well. I hv no intention to move away from I-quadrant ... but I attended the networking group, hoping to struck me ideas or collaborate with others on what I can do next. Markets wont bull-rally forever? We need to move our money/funds out once the fun is over? So ... I am moving part of it into B-quadrant. I am willing to learn from many biz-men(not salesmen) ... how they set-up their biz, risk involved, their ups-downs, experiences etc etc ... anything that I could get myself to learn ... about running a biz, successfully. 

So ... recently, I set-up a tuition center. Great start tho I do face some hiccups. What is next? How to I run it successfully? What should I do to expand? And more ... to learn.

Leaving the E-quadrant is a 'planned' journey ... it is not. To be honest, I never foresee future ... I just keep working on the 'present' moment ... and set my goals, plan ... work-work-work ... nothing else. No secrets ... but I do believe in LOA(Law of Attraction).  I do believe in changing my mindset ... and strongly believe that I have many more things to learn!! 

Pushing myself away from the E ... and now, I am still inside S(giving tuition ... exchanging time with money) ... so, I will be moving away from S in ... 3 years time!! Once I am able to do that ... I am inside B and I. 

Finacial Independence is what I talked about ... in introducing myself. I am not good in public speaking. I am not gentle(LOL) and prefer to speak about facts(rather than fake smiles). 

So ... conclusion of tonight's gathering : I failed. Haha ... I just find the door out after the event rather than staying there to 'interact'? 

By the way, there is a currency-trader(working for a bank) there ... wow. There is another young man who will be sitting for module 6-7 too. I saw a Kenanga name card flying around, but somehow ... it didnt reach me. 

JH Lee : This is my latest bed-time reading ... simple and nice. How he free himself financially ... so, I m interested (and highly admiring) to know how he did it ... and what I need to achieve that? Write a book? Write this blog-post ... err ... do not pay me anything. Just the satisfaction that I could voice out my thoughts ... and reminding myself of my journey ... to financial freedom!!

Wish me luck ... and when 'I am there', I will certainly teach everyone to be 'there' (for free ... but all need to donate to my charity fund, which I will be creating). For now, whatever I talk ... is just talk-only. Actions always speak louder than words?


CPO at 2014

CPO : Saw that in my blog(widget) ... nice number 2014.

Yes, CPO has been in strong downtrend, many plantation counters in sales!! FGV went to new low? It hit RM3.81 ... today it shown some rebounds? Will it breaks RM3.80?

This is the front-page of The Egde recently.

TSH dived sharply too!! Broken 20MA(yellow line) last week ... now trading around RM3.25

Ok ... time to watch DVD : The Journey.

From The Inside : MERDEKA

As I am a LP's fans ... I do like most of their songs. Some might think that their songs not suitable for an 'old' man like me ... or even wondering why I would like their songs ... 'like' is under-statement, actually.

They released the latest album recently ... this old song, "From The Inside" ... appropriately stating what I think of ...MERDEKA DAY.

To feel that we are Malaysian, it must be from the inside. To love our country, we need to FEEL that we are Malaysians. Slowly, younger generation might no longer feel the way I am feeling ... for my country.

This is something many won't feel when they shout "1-Malaysia" slogan ... or sing "Negaraku" during school's assembly. I still remembered that I was one of those 'stupid' young Chinese who will stand straight and sing the song ... proudly. Patriotism ... hmm ... it is fading. I have to admit that.

Petronas has been doing a good job with their catchy advertisements during festive-seasons. This is Merdeka ... 2014.

To feel MERDEKA ... we need to feel it inside. Yes, it is from inside us. Not slogan-preaching. Not being forced to 'show' we love our country, we treasure our diversity ... our different cultures, appreciating our differences. We, normal Malaysians ... are blended. I do take roti-canai for breakfast, enjoying Nasi-lemak or satay ... I speak Malay too. Why are we slowly being divided?

Print Screen : Malaysia Map.

It is our politicians ... gov or oppositions. Same. Always using race or religion as their agenda, to split and divide(in order to gain votes) us. sigh. I really missed OLD feelings of being a Malaysian. We do not talk about the colour of our skins. We have mutual respect ... and mixed well. In fact, one of my best of friend was an Indian. And in Sabah, I speak Malay with my Kadazan friends!!

Maxis's Merdeka 2014 ... stating that we are family!! Only when we could feel it from the inside.

Digi's Merdeka ad ... we are family!!

Be a happy big family, can-or-not?

Happy merdeka ...
