KOTA KINABALU, May 29, 2011: SAPP President said he was surprised by the harsh way that DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang had attacked SAPP as being unrealistic and for the ultimatum that SAPP must join PR on the ground that only PR can beat BN.

"As a matter of fact, Sabah DAP chief, Jimmy Wong Sze Phin, had called and sms to invite me to the DAP harvest festival. In order to reciprocate, I invited Jimmy Wong as a guest to my house and we had a nice chat on politics" revealed Yong.

Why I left for our ‘poorer’ neighbour

Contrary to most Malaysians who work overseas, I chose a less popular destination. I have been based in Jakarta for the past year and a bit. Most people look down on Indonesia as the poorer neighbour, much like the way Singapore looks at us. However, after living here, there is much to like, and below are some of the reasons why I prefer life here and do not plan to return anytime soon:

Bukan Aset, Tetapi Parasit Dalam PBS

Saudara Pengarang,

GENERASI pemimpin Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) masakini lebih tertarik dengan daya kuasa wang dan pangkat. Generasi pelapis yang tidak pernah merasai peritnya perjuangan jatuh bangunnya parti itu, lebih rela diulit mimpi indah berbanding matlamat sebenar perjuangan untuk membela rakyat.

Maka tidak hairanlah pemimpinnya terutama di pedalaman tidak perlu ke pejabat untuk bertemu rakyat. Cukuplah mencari mereka di mana-mana pusat hiburan sama ada siang atau malam.

Inilah hakikat fenomena yang berlaku di kalangan pemimpin pemudanya, yang bukan sahaja ego, bongkak malahan sombong dan angkuh. Ketokohan Huguan Siou juga sedikit sebanyak tercalar oleh sikap pemimpin di Keningau ini.

Over 50 US Christian Churches to Hold Muslim Qur'an Readings...

"Arrogance, pride is always the beginning of the end.  It is only in the simple hearts of man, the simple hearts, the child-like candor of an adult, that the truth will be found and the way.  I am the way!  No one shall come to the Father but through Me, for I am the way.  All who deny My visit to your world, all who have not accepted Me as the Messiah, they are against Me, and as such, will seek to destroy all who uphold the truth." - Jesus, August 5, 1974
