The Passion Of Love

What is love? off course anyone can answer by saying love is a relationship between tow person with different gender. For me love come with a different perspective and off course we love our GOD, wives, sons, daughters, parents and so forth. There fore love mean, a relationship or a connection between your surrounding including the society, nation and the living things. The word Love is different from the perspective  of the living human in this world but the end result is happiness. People is happy when he or she got money but more happier when he or she got love. The sharing of love will create a wonderful environment and bringing a lot of joyfulness. People will forget their hunger when being attach with love or people will forget their grouch when entering the majestic of love arena and many more will arise when love come to their life. Love is really near to you, what you can do is take it and put it inside you heart. Try to make nice thing with love and you will love it for the rest of your life.

The reason why I wrote this article because of I want all the Malaysian, Sabahan and Tamparulian to love each other and treat them like your relative. Put away all your grouch and try to live in a harmonic environment. I ask you all to love each other not to create illegal sex but try to make it in a different perspective. When dealing with the word love, people tend to think about sex but hold on please think outside the box and you will grateful that I have show you something that you never experience before. Love for the nation will bring political harmonic environment to our country. Love the society, Love the animal, Love the creation and mostly Love your God Truly Deeply Do. Share you love and you will get a lot of love to pouring in.

As an update for you all, at the headline of news paper in Malaysia nowadays, tell about the story of sex abuse, killing, murdering and many sort of criminal cases are happening inside our country now. How this thing happen? Why? Who shall be blame?Not only the government should be blame, parents also being pointed as the main cause of this problem. A single individual will reflect in a bad manner if he or she is not trained from the beginning. Teacher should play their role and create a good citizen. Teacher must enhance the skill of teaching by inserting the concept of love to the pupils. We cannot blame Teacher, Parent, Society and Nation for this problem but we as one Malaysia should joining hand together to act and tackle this problem immediately. Once more love will save the world. God create this world with his love but Evil came to take this love and changes it with different types of love. From the perspective of Evils, Love came with killing, murdering and all types of hates. Say to yourself that you carry big love everyday and you will be transform as a good lover for your nation, society and most of all your GOD.

People of Sabah is a learning boys and girls that receive so many changes and idea and the true we are in the process of learning. Provide us more knowledge and guide and we shall become the number one in the future.  To become an idealistic and philosophy citizen we need to throw away all the bad idea pouring in. Stay focus with your goals and make  our country proud of us. Continue reading the passage below. Thanks For Visiting.

Kota Kinabalu: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said the 1Malaysia concept has been so successful that it has inevitably created a new pattern in community living among the people, including in Sabah.

It has also strengthened the spirit of unity and diversity shared by all ethnic groups in Sabah all these while, he said.

In this respect, he expressed hope that the people in Sabah would continue to give their undivided support to the implementation of the concept so as to ensure continuity of the present development.

The 1Malaysia concept mooted by the PM he said is very close to the hearts of people in Sabah. "In fact, such concept has long been practiced by the people here," he said.

The various ethnic groups and with their different cultural backgrounds makes Sabah very unique and interesting. Thus, the people must defend this diversity because it is the symbol of unity and strength of the 1Malaysia race.

He also urged the people to extend the spirit of brotherhood and unity that binds them so firmly from one generation to the next generation.

"We also must be wise to pool our energy to develop our beloved state.

This is because it is the basis to ensure our State and country be on a stable platform as it moves on to become a high-income nation by 2020," he said.

As an elected government, he said, is always listen to the people's grievances and also always strived to find the best possible methods to ensure all sides are taken care of in line with the objective of the 1Malaysia concept - People First, Performance Now.

He was confident that the majority of the people in Sabah would not support the planned illegal assembly on June 9.

"The people are already comfortable with the existing harmonious and peaceful environment," he said at the 1Malaysia dinner held in conjunction with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's visit to Sabah at the Padang Bandaran, Wednesday night.

He said the presence of Najib and wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansur proved the latter's commitment to be with the people.

Thus, the people must reject any actions from irresponsible groups that are only interested in creating public disorder and disharmony.

"Such immoral activities would only affect the image of the country including causing difficulty to the people and adversely affect business activities," he said. He said the people should not join as well as be unduly influenced with the organizers of the illegal assembly.

In retrospect, he said the people should unite to strengthen the unity and to preserve the existing stability in order to ensure development continuity in Sabah.

illegal assembly

Sabah NGOs voice their objection to illegal assembly

Illegal assembly create havoc. Permission from the government is required and must before you start any assembly. Think first before you act. 

KLANG: Ten businessmen and 18 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) here lodged police reports urging for stern action to be taken against those participating in an illegal assembly scheduled for July 9.

The businessmen were from the tourism and hotel sector while the NGOs included the Kampung Idaman Malay Youth Association (Pekidam), Pulau Ketam Youth Association, the Sungai Pinang Federal Village Development and Security Committee (JKKKP) and Belia 4B Kawasan Kota Raja.

People's Progressive Party (PPP) national assistant information chief Tiong Yap Choon said the proposed illegal assembly by trouble makers also caused fear among Asean member countries participating in the Asian Ice Skiing Competition to be held in a shopping complex in Petaling Jaya early next month.

He said the participating countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong had contacted him asking for assurance on their safety.

"However, we have already convinced them that the security situation is under control and that the authorities are ensuring their safety.

In KOTA KINABALU, NGOs in Sabah rejected the illegal assembly, describing it as an alien culture in the State.

The advisor of the Sabah Kadazandusun Murut Welfare and Education Association (Pekadin), Latif Kandok, said many other channels could be used to express dissatisfaction including through the legal process.

"Demonstrations or illegal assemblies are not part of our culture.

Right from the start, the people of Sabah love peace and moderation in life especially when it comes to racial harmony," he said Tuesday.

President of the Sabah Tidung Association, Datuk Juslie Ajirol, said the illegal assembly under the guise of democracy would only jeopardise national security and peace.

Other NGOs that expressed their opposition included the Tawau Area Fishermen's Association, Persatuan Bangsa Sungai Sabah (Sabas), and the Tawau Malay Taxi Owners and Drivers Association (Persarum)

Mount Kinabalu Legends

The Legends of Mount Kinabalu

"Once upon a time there was a giant living... at the foot of Mount Kinabalu."
- Ansow Gunsalam,1983

Until now, Kinabalu's name is still a mystery. The most popular view derives it from the Kadazan words, Aki Nabalu, meaning 'the revered place of the dead'. The local Kadazandusuns belief that their spirits dwell on the mountain top. Among the bare rocks of the summit grows a moss which early Kadazandusun guides said provided food for the spirits of their ancestor.

Many of the mountain's early explorers reported that their Kadazandusun guides performed religious ceremonies upon reaching the summit. Sir Hugh Low wrote that his guide carried an assortment of charms, pieces of wood, human teeth, and other paraphernalia weighing three kilograms (seven pounds) up to the summit. Whitehead recorded the slaughter of one white chicken.

These ceremonies were performed to appease the spirit of the mountain as well as the ancestral spirits who lived there. Nowadays, a ceremony is conducted annually by the Kinabalu Park's guides. Seven chicken and eggs, as well as cigars, betel nuts, sirih leaves, lime and rice are sacrificed, and later enjoyed by the guides.

Another theory about the mountain's name comes from the derivation of Kina meaning "China" and Balu, meaning "widow". A Kadazandusun legend tells the story of a Chinese prince ascending the mountain. He is seeking a huge pearl on the top which is guarded by a ferocious dragon. The prince succeeds in slaying the dragon and stealing the pearl. He then marries a Kadazan woman, but soon abandons her and returns to china. His wife, heartbroken, wanders to the mountain to mourn. There she was belief to turn into stone.


An ancient mythology lies at the heart of Kadazandusun culture. A Kadazandusun creation myth tells how the supreme deities Kinohiringan and his wife Umunsumundu made the earth while Kinohiringan created the sky and the clouds. But the clouds were smaller than the earth and Kinohiringan was ashamed. To save his pride, Umunsumundu reshaped the earth, making it smaller, and thus created Mount Kinabalu, the mountain that we know today.

A Kadazandusun story tells of a giant king named Gayo Nakan ('big eater') who lived at the base of the mountain. His people tired of his enormous appetite and were had pressed to feed him. Hearing their complaints, the king told them to bury him alive at the top of the mountain. Bringing all their tools they laboured in vain, until the king uttered magic words and sank into the rock up to his shoulders. He then told his people that, due to their lack of patience, drought and famine would afflict them - but promised to help them in times of war. Fearful and penitent, the people made their first sacrificial offerings at the wishing pool below the summit that was Gayo Nakan's grave.

Closure of three roads for Jom Heboh programme

Finally after 9 years since 2002 Jom Heboh TV3 is back to Sabah. I still can remember that the last Jom Heboh in Sabah is on 2002 conducted at KKYS area in Likas. The visitor was like a sand cannot be counted. During that time, a lot of booth open and it hard to find parking space and I'm sure it will be the same problem will be accounted during this 2011 Jom Heboh... Happy Visiting and continue reading...

SMK Nabalu

Masidi wants SMK Nabalu issue to be settled soon
Published on: Friday, June 24, 2011

Tuaran: Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun hopes the issue on the construction of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Nabalu, about 45 kilometres from here, will be settled this year.

"Politics here is taken in different situations, in fact the people in this State stick to promise and sincerity, if there are leaders (from outside) who can't fulfil their promises, don't make such statements in Sabah," he said.

"Don't make promises if they can't be honoured and I hope there are no more empty promises for Sabah people," Masidi said when asked to comment on the school's project, which still had not started since two years ago.Last week, the Sabah Kadazandusun Murut Welfare and Education Association (Pekadin) called on the Education Ministry to honour its promise to start construction of the school costing about RM45 million, this year.

Pekadin was quoted as saying after Deputy Education Minister Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi made the announcement on Aug 21, 2009, that people in the area had high hopes that the school would become a realty.

"In sincerity, I say this is not being influenced by feeling of anger, but more out of frustration," Masidi said.

He said he had referred the matter to the Education Ministry which gave the explanation that the construction of the school was postponed due to a change in the tender.

"I was informed there's a slight technical problem on the issue, because when the school project was opened for tender, it had exceeded the approved financial budget and had to be re-tendered.

"When I was in Kuala Lumpur end of last year, I was told the change in the tender had been completed and during the recent visit by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, we have told him about it and the issue would be given due attention," he added.

World Heritage Status

Sabah to seek joint World Heritage Status for 3 areas
Published on: Friday, June 24, 2011

Tuaran: The Sabah Government is taking steps to secure Maliau Basin, Danum Valley and Imbak Canyon in perpetuity by applying for joint World Heritage Status for all three conservation areas.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun, when disclosing the State Cabinet's decision at the 1st Borneo Carnivore Symposium (BCS) here, Thursday, said this was to ensure that nothing would disrupt the ecosystems in these areas in the long run.

"The reason behind this is simple; we want to protect our forests so no future corrupted politician can take it away."

He said it was crucial to protect Sabah's forests and wildlife to benefit future generations and to ensure its position as a tourism destination.

"Eventually, tourism will be the number one earner for Sabah and people will come from all over the world to see Sabah's nature and it makes business sense to protect our jungles," Masidi added.

This first ever symposium on Borneo's carnivores was organised by the Sabah Wildlife Department, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research of Germany, and attended by delegates from 15 countries comprising scientists, conservationists and representatives of government agencies.

During the one-week programme, they sought to ensure the future survival of Borneo's 23 carnivore species. The carnivores of concern are a group of mammals comprising cats like the Sunda Clouded Leopard, civets such as the Malay Civet (Tangalunga), otters and badgers such as Teledu.

One of the scientists present, Andre Hearn of Oxford University, said the three conservation areas being put forth by the State Government for the World Heritage Status application, were also home to the very mysterious and endangered species of carnivores such as the Borneo Bay Cat (Pardofelis badia) and Hose's Palm Civet (Diplogale hosei).

"The Borneo Bay Cat is found only in Borneo and has been recorded by camera traps in Danum Valley at relatively high frequency, compared to other areas in Sabah," said Hearn.

The first photograph in the wild of the Borneo Bay Cat was actually taken only in 2002 in Mulu National Park in Sarawak.

The elusive Hose's Palm Civet was not found during any camera trap surveys in the lowland of eastern Sabah including Danum Valley, but was found instead only in Maliau Basin, which is the most "eastern" record of this species.

IUCN Chairman, Dr Jerrold L. Belant, said: "This highlights the fact that it is probably found in low densities and supports the notion that it is restricted to the highland forest of Borneo.

"This, in turn, points to the fact that it is crucial to protect different types of forest that support different communities of both wildlife and plant life diversity."

Said Sabah Wildlife Department Director Dr Laurentius Ambus: "Maliau Basin, Danum Valley and Imbak Canyon are part of the larger contiguous forest concession area belonging to the Sabah Foundation.

This area as a whole is vital because it has different types of forest such as lowland and highland and supports a number of different species."

Best Time To visit Mount Kinabalu

Weather issue: When is the best time to go to Mount Kinabalu?

by drizad on December 2, 2008
I received at least 3 emails asking about the weather on Kinabalu each week. I think I better write this post and lead the inquirer about the issue here. It will save me a lot of time, answering the same emails over and over again.

After doing some research, I managed to find a good climate details of Kota Kinabalu:
Climate for Kota Kinabalu, Sabah 
To make your life easy, the higher the precipitation, the higher the amount of rainfall. If you look closely at the table (climate for Kota Kinabalu is for the year 2007), January to April are the driest months where the precipitation are the lowest (i.e. below 150mm per month). This is the best time to come here and climb Mount Kinabalu. However, seasonal variations can occur in any year.

Kota Kinabalu Precipitation
Rain can occur at any time of the year. In Sabah the main rainy seasons are from October to January when the rains come with the north east monsoon, and from May to July, with the south west monsoon.

Mornings are usually clear at any season. Sabah lies below the typhoon (hurricane) belt, though the tail-ends can cause strong winds and rain during the typhoon season.

At Kinabalu Park Headquarters (1,560m a.s.l) the mean monthly temperature is approximately 20 ºC, with a daily fluctuations of 7 – 9 ºC. Mean annual rainfall at this location is 2,380mm.

A common climatic feature to the park are bright early mornings, followed quickly by clouding mid-morning, which obscures the mountains by mid-day. Showers usually occur on the upper slopes in the afternoon.

Although they say ‘the driest time’, a good raincoat is a must. Otherwise, you may get wet when it rains while on the way up to Laban Rata, at the slopes of Kinabalu.
Got raincoat?


Mount Kinabalu Fro Air View

Mount Kinabalu from the air

Managed to snap some shots of Mount Kinabalu while traveling from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan on a flight. I went to Sandakan few months back, but did not managed to upload the photos sooner. The photo quality is a bit low, as I shot it with a smart phone, to be exact, Blackberry 8520.

I traveled from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan in the afternoon. Afternoon shots are not good as clouds had covered the mountain which obscure the view of the mountain. I came back from Sandakan to Kota Kinabalu on a morning flight. This is the best time to see the majestic mountain of Borneo, as the sky is really clear!

There is one shot that is different from the others. See if you can identify it!

Good news for 13,000 GSTT in Sabah

Guru Sandaran Tak Terlatih

Setiap kali berkunjung ke Sabah, Timbalan Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin merangkap Menteri Pelajaran, pasti membawa berita baik kepada Guru termasuk Guru Sandaran Tidak Terlatih atau GSTT.

Pada Mac 2011 lalu ketika melawat daerah terpencil di Tongod dalam kawasan Parlimen Kinabatangan, Muhyiddin mengumumkan berita baik bahawa kontrak 13,000 GSTT di seluruh Malaysia yang sebelum ini ditamatkan, ditarik balik.

Ia bagi membolehkan GSTT terus berkhidmat sebagai pendidik anak bangsa termasuk di sekolah di kawasan pedalaman.

Sebelum ini masa depan 13,000 GSTT itu dalam dilema kerana kontrak mereka ditamatkan ekoran ribuan Guru terlatih dari Universiti, Institusi Pengajian Tinggi Swasta dan juga Institut Pendidikan Guru Malaysia, sudahpun menamatkan pengajian dan sedia ditempatkan untuk mengajar di sekolah sekolah.

Dan pada Sabtu 18 Jun 2011 di Beaufort, Sabah, ketika merasmikan mesyuarat perwakilan UMNO Beaufort, Muhyiddin sekali lagi membuat 1 pengumuman gembira kepada 13,000 GSTT itu. Arahan telah dikeluarkan kepada Ketua Pengarah Pelajaran Malaysia, Datuk Abdul Ghafar Mahmud bagi melaksanakan program penyerapan GSTT itu menjalani kursus 18 bulan di Institut Pendidikan Guru di seluruh negara.
Selepas menjalani kursus 18 bulan itu, GSTT terbabit kini tidak lagi dipanggil GSTT kerana mereka sudah terlatih dan sebaik tamat latihan, program penempatan guru ke sekolah terpilih termasuk di pedalaman, dilaksanakan Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia.

Sebelum ini, kerajaan juga sudah mengumumkan pelbagai bantuan dan insentif kepada Guru.

Ini termasuk memperkenalkan elaun tahap kesusahan kepada guru yang mengajar di pedalaman dengan tahap paling tinggi elaunnya bernilai RM1,500 sebulan, ganjaran khas kepada Pengetua Cemerlang, pengenalan Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi, SBT dan kenaikan gaji dan gred Guru.

Di sebalik semua ini, kita tahu semuanya bertujuan menjadikan Malaysia negara maju dan cemerlang dalam semua bidang termasuk akhlak dan kerohanian.

Dan disebalik semua juga, kita tahu ada juga Guru yang tidak pandai bersyukur sebaliknya menyemai bibit membenci kerajaan kepada murid muridnya sendiri.

Ada juga Guru yang menyokong pembangkang dan ada juga menjadi calon pembangkang pada pilihanraya kecil atau umum.

Saya sendiri pernah mengalami ini ketika di tingkatan 3 pada 1986 di sebuah SMK di Seremban, Negeri Sembilan dimana guru Bahasa Malaysia saya sering menyelitkan rasa marahnya kepada pemimpin kerajaan selain pernah berkata "Kalau nampak pemimpin bernama ni..... Tembak Dia"!!!!

Apapun kita tahu, majoriti atau 99.9 % Guru di Malaysia sememangnya komited kepada usaha mendidik anak bangsa menjadi insan mulia, berguna, cemerlang dan dihormati di senatero dunia.

Tahniah Muhyiddin, Syabas Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia dan Semoga Maju Jaya kepada semua Guru di Malaysia.

Terima kasih kerana membaca. ( Article In Malay, You are free to translate it )
