Local press reports say the Indonesian-American beauty met her mother Daisy Fajarina in the city-state and flew home this morning.

She met reporters and told them she was no longer in love with the prince, whom she accused of sexual abuse and violence.

“I am afraid of the daily sex abuse and violence,” the Banjarmasin Post quoted the 17-year-old as saying.

“I don’t sleep every day until about 4am in fear of getting an injection or being drugged,” said the model who was named one of Indonesia’s 100 Precious Women by Harper’s Bazaar magazine.


Family lawyer Yuli Andre Darma told reporters that Manohara has yet to decide her future and will stay at the family home in Slipi, west Jakarta.

AIPMC calls for ASEAN suspension of Myanmar

 AIPMC calls for ASEAN suspension of Myanmar

[The ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Caucus on Myanmar (AIPMC) after a meeting in Bangkok on Monday night (25th May 2009) issued the following statement]

ASEAN MPs call on tougher ASEAN actions on Myanmar including Suspension

The ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Myanmar Caucus (AIPMC) calls on ASEAN to suspend Myanmar’s membership in the regional bloc if the country’s military regime continues to detain its democracy leader, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s unjust current six-year house arrest is due to expire on 27 May 2009, but the regime has brought on further trumped-up charges against her and is likely to detain her for a further three to five years.

Several ASEAN member states have expressed deepening concern about the regime’s detention of Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners. However, ASEAN leaders have failed to take the measures necessary to compel the regime to end violations of human rights.

ASEM FMM 9 should endorse the proposal for

an international inquiry of 15 years of human rights abuses in Myanmar

like those conducted for atrocities in Darfur, Rwanda and Yugoslavia

Netherlands Ambassador to Jakarta: What is and isn’t Islam?

Netherlands Ambassador to Jakarta:

What is and isn’t Islam?

kaabah mekah islam holycity 080307 largeIt is not only important to explain what Islam really is, but it is also important to make a distinction between what Islam involves, and what people have incorrectly associated with and attributed to it.

What is the relation between Islam and the actions of people that practice the Muslim faith? In my opinion there are many things which have very little to do with Islam as a religion, but are nevertheless ascribed to it because the people who are linked to it happen to be Muslims.

Malaysian Groups day dreams of Asean to end non-interference policy

Malaysian Groups day dreams of Asean to end non-interference policy

Sorry for changing the heading just to reflect the reality. We all could day dream but we could not use the bamboo piece to straiten the ASEAN bitch’s curled tail as the Burmese saying, ” Khwe Mee Kauk- Kyi Tauk Swoot Thalo”.

PETALING JAYA: Activists are calling on Asean to abandon its non-interference policy to check human right abuses in the region.

Hakam honorary secretary-general Syamala Segaran said it was high time Asean reviewed this policy as part of its preparations to facilitate the formation of the Asean Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children.

Myanmar buried alive in landslide at Malaysian Police General Operations Force (GOF) camp

Myanmar buried alive in landslide at

Malaysian Police General Operations Force (GOF) camp

Comment: Malaysian Police would not even bother to even consider paying compensation. The contractor, subcontractor, the agents and Myanmar Embassy in Malaysia would also would not help. It is up to the friends to donate for burial or the body would be just left at hospital motury. I had an experience like that about a dozen years ago. The hospital officer was willing to bury because they had already contracted a caretaker burial company. He just wanted the Myanmar Embassy to confirm the religion and they would bury or cremate according to the dead person’s religion. He told me that he had a bad experience of a dream, in which a dead body came back and scolded him for cremating him without properly investigate about his religion, Islam. Myanmar Embassy failed to respond even after repeated official requests.

United Nations is useless

United Nations is useless

When I was small, during the school days, in modern history chapter, they use to potray how civilized the world has become, united in a common fight for humanity and human race. How the nations of the world, differing in every single way, but got together to build up U.N. That was then. UN official idiots never seriously believe that Israel will stop attacking Palestine kids for that PIECE OF PAPER called UN RESOLUTION. You think Burma-junta will release Ang Suu Kyi and really transform Myanmar into a truley democratic state, that China will stop harrasing Tibetians movement?  (Note: I changed or edited and put some more facts and some words in this paragraph.)

Now. Firstly, why named it ‘United’ Nations when none of the nations are united? They are all taking advantage of the system for their ownselves. Why create a union when 5-power members can veto anything they wish? And above all, communist China is in the 5 powerful nations? Its CHINA! One of the worst in terms of human rights. Tiananmen Square, remember?

If like this, may be we need to fight the Thailand and once they lost the Thai King, Thai government, Thai Military top-guns, Thai police chiefs and Thai Judges could be tried in International Court as War Criminals or Crimes against Humanity.



 It is not possible at all as Thailand had a lot of friends and this kind of committing of War Criminals or Crimes against Humanity is rampant and common in almost in all the countries. Even USA refused to enter the treaty to put their soldiers into that kind of justice system.

So what should we do? This is not about one country, one race nor one religion problem. It is almost a universal or global problem.

For ASEAN, although we could not claim that EU is perfect with race and religious prejudices at least we could solve about 90% of our problems if we move fast forward the Integration of ASEAN on EU model.



Instead of fighting for independence from our mother land, we all could stay together in ASEAN Union, moving around freely to settle, visit, doing business, investment, study etc.. We just need the Rule of Law but not Rule by Law as happening in most of ASEAN countries.

We all need to compromise and sacrifice our absolute soverignity and self interests.

What we all could gain is enormous.

Dr M on sex at 80 and Internet porn

Dr M on sex at 80 and Internet porn

Most Malaysians expect former strongman Dr Mahathir Mohamad – still alert and sharp at 84 – to rise to the occasion in any speaking engagements.
The 200-strong crowd at the Bloggers Universe Malaysia 2009, packed inside a bar-cum-conference hall in Subang Jaya’s Lakeview Club on May 16, was not disappointed.
The former prime minister, a person who has little time for self-reflection, was however unusually candid in his one-hour speech.

bukit gantang by election mahathir ceramah and luncheon 060409 04Speaking off the cuff, he lamented his pledge not to censor the Internet. He believes certain parts of the cyberspace should be declared off limits, in particular pornography.

Mahathir confessed, with a mischievous sparkle in his eyes, that he had surf porn sites just “to see how easy it is for a child” to do so.

“My God, it was so easy,” he exclaimed. “All you’ve got to do is to put ‘SEX’ and you get everything, all the filth in the world would be shown to you – in motion.

“Now, I think this is very bad. I mean, adults like me who is 80 years old and quite incapable – that’s all right,” he said, leaving the floor in stitches.

“I’m not confessing anything,” he smiled. “Wait until you reach 80, then you will know.”
