Pairin Magic Touch


When the Huguan Siou speaks, the prime minister listens

It could be his magic touch or charisma. But by his quiet and gentle persuasion, Joseph Pairin Kitingan gets things done for Sabah’s indigenous Kadazandusuns and Muruts who make up about a fifth of the 3.2m people who include Malays, ethnic Chinese and Indians. Most importantly, he has the ear of Najib Razak, the prime minister.

He doesn’t throw tantrums in public or hold the ruling 13-party Barisan Nasional coalition, of which his Parti Bersatu Sabah (unity party) is a member, to ransom. Yet when others in the coalition fail, Pairin, as he is affectionately called by his middle name, succeeds.
The undisputed Huguan Siou, paramount leader of the Kadazandusuns and Muruts, has got the prime minister to set up a royal commission of inquiry into illegal immigrants in Sabah and the first college of higher learning for Kadazandusuns and Muruts, build a water treatment plant and lay 52km (32.5 miles) of pipes to bring potable water to slightly more than 200,000 mostly natives in the Sabah interior.

“Every time we met … he (Pairin) would always raise the water supply problem of the people in the interior,” said Najib during a visit to Keningau to celebrate the Kaamatan harvest festival with the Kadazandusuns and Muruts on June 16. “So I said, ‘just wait till I come to Keningau.’ I haven’t come here empty handed.”
The federal government is giving Sabah a 235m ringgit ($73.5m) loan for the water project. Najib said his government would fund the KDM college. How much that would be will depend on a discussion between him and Pairin.

Pairin has been the lawmaker of Keningau, a parliamentary constituency five times the size of Singapore, since 1986. It includes his state seat of Tambunan which he has held for 36 years after winning it in 1976.
At 71 the Grand Old Man of Sabah politics has certainly mellowed with age but he has not lost his effectiveness. And he has drawn much wisdom from his experience in leading a state in hostile opposition to Kuala Lumpur and then working in consonance with the centre as government leader.
His patience and tact have paid off. Events of the past week have put Keningau in sharp focus not just because of the prime minister’s visit. They have announced the massive transformation of Keningau into an economic, educational and cultural hub.

Forestry and vast acreage of oil palms have supported Keningau. But Najib launched Malaysia’s biggest integrated livestock centre in Sook, a small distance from Keningau town, that will draw investments of 763m ringgit. It can produce 6m litres of milk a year. There will be 2,000 cows with 1,600 of them producing milk while the rest will be slaughtered for beef. The centre is expected to produce 2m litres of milk from 500 cows next year.
Najib opened a 30m-ringgit handicraft centre of which 20m ringgit has come from the federal government. It is a one-stop centre that trains artisans, produces and sells handicraft.

So the KDM college fits snugly into Keningau’s economic transformation. Agriculture and agro-industries need lots of skilled workers. It would be fitting for the college to produce agriculturalists, agronomists, veterinarians, carpenters, building technicians and artisans to fill thousands of jobs in Keningau.
“This college is a dream of the KDM community to have a higher learning institution in the interior of Sabah,” said Pairin as Najib launched the college at Kaingaran in Tambuan, about 43km from Keningau.
“Every year, thousands of school leavers from Keningau, Tambunan, Nabawan and Ranau have to further their studies in Kota Kinabalu or the peninsula. The fact is that not many of them can afford to do so.”
It will be built on 20 hectares of a hillock that forms part of 240 hectares of state land. Officials said 200 hectares of it would be planted with oil palms that should in time earn enough money for the college. – Insight Sabah

The Beatles Lost Stories


John Lennon’s Free As A Bird & Real Love (original versions)


February 27th, 2012

Free As A Bird was originally composed and recorded in 1977 as a home demo by John Lennon. In 1995 a studio version of the recording, with contributions from Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, was released as a single by The Beatles, the first new Beatles single since they broke up in 1970.

John Lennon – Free As A Bird (Original, 1977)

John Lennon- Real Love (Original, 1977/79/80)

John was one half of the greatest popular music songwriting combination of all time. Even in this crude demo recorded at home with low tech equipment, you can just sense a great musical genius at work. Remember, this was done 7 years after the end of the Fab Four; 10 years after Sgt Peppers, which was probably the greatest pop/rock album ever made. Compare this with his first ever composition (Hello Little Girl) in 1957 when he was 17.

England Lost to Italy 4-2, on Penalty Kick


What a bad luck for England... Lost to Italy in Penalty Shootout early this morning, aggregate 2-4 where the luck fall to the Italian team. I have been waiting for a great moment for England team where they should take the European title but what to do? The game was really bitter between the team, they  were exchanging attacks but with less luck there were no goal created until extra time. All the best to Italy and for my favorite team of England, there always be a hope in the future.

Don't Lepak.... Civil servant



Outgoing Sabah Federal Secretary Datuk Khazali Ahmad reminded civil servants to have high integrity so as to enhance the delivery system. He said high integrity is not only about avoiding graft and power abuse but also completing duty on time, arriving to work on time, teamwork, relations among staff and accountability.

"By not taking bribes and not getting involved in corruption, it does not mean our integrity has reached a high level if we not always in the office (when not on official or outside assignment) or when we are always late to work or not committed to our duty that causes our work to be delayed," he said. Some Govt staff have often been accused of playing truant (Lepak), thus affecting the delivery system.

Speaking at a dinner with the media cum farewell dinner cum launching of the Sabah Federal Secretary Office Integrity Plan 2012-2016, he said integrity is also closely associated with backlog cases and failure to lead the staff to have high discipline. All these are elements that are related to the level of integrity that does not only involve individual integrity but also the department's integrity.

With respect to the media, Khazali urged heads of Federal agencies in Sabah to always maintain firm relations with media practitioners. Such strong ties, he said, is an "engagement" to enable all forms of programmes and development projects to be made known to the target groups.

Through continuous engagement with the stakeholders and clients, he said, they would be able to obtain feedback from them on the implementation of a programme or policy. "This is where we need the media practitioners. Through their reports and the public's feedback, we can appraise and scrutinise the strength and weaknesses in the implementation of the nation's development agenda," he said.

He said the media is also the main medium on the part of the civil service to obtain direct feedback from the people. Apart from acting as a "publicity agent" to promote the Federal agencies in terms of development projects and programmes, he said, the media is also an avenue for the people to channel information.

"In this context, I would like to stress to the agencies' heads not to be too defensive or protective over reports by the media regarding our agencies," he said. Khazali said the media is a connecting bridge between the executive or policy implementers and the people. To this, he said they must be fair to the media and media practitioners. "They have a responsibility also to report news that is of public interest," he said. Therefore, should there be negative news reports about Federal agencies, he said, they should strive to improve their weaknesses and to engage with the media to correct the agency's weaknesses.

Thanking the media for its support, coverage and positive publicity on Federal agencies in Sabah, Khazali said media contribution in the government's development agenda is an important element in the Government Transformation Programme (GTP).


10 Alternative Study Abroad Locations You Should Consider



Europe, China, even parts of South America are all incredibly popular study abroad destinations. They’re a great choice for many, offering opportunities to explore cultures both familiar and foreign, building a new world view, and meeting new people. But they’re not the only options out there. In fact, many alternative study abroad locations exist, offering unique opportunities that you just can’t find anywhere else. Studying on a ship around the world, learning about conservation in Antarctica, and exploring some of the most mind-blowing architecture in the world in Dubai are just a few of the great ways you can step outside of the usual study abroad experience. Read on to learn about these ideas, and more, to give you a truly unique college experience.


SEMESTER AT SEA:
This alternative study location is, basically, everywhere. With a Semester at Sea, you can spend your study abroad experience not just in one place, but in many. Voyages include Central and South America, North Africa, and the Atlantic. This incredible experience allows you to learn about life around the world, living on a ship, and embrace around the clock lifelong learning. Students of Semester at Sea leave with a more global understanding, thanks to their multiple-country study and field experience.

ANTARCTICA:
Studying abroad in Antarctica is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. How many students can say that they’ve studied on the coldest, windiest, and most remote continent on Earth? Learning in Antarctica is an incredible adventure, allowing for opportunities to experience wildlife, amazing scenery, and activities that you just can’t find anywhere else. Predominantly field-based, most Antarctic study abroad programs are great for those concerned with the natural world, including geology, climate change studies, and conservation, as well as science and exploration.

DUBAI:
Dubai is an incredible place to study abroad, not just because of its unusual culture, but because of its wealth of excellent schools. Many study abroad students choose the American University Dubai, but there are so many others, including Boston University Dental School Dubai, Dubai Aerospace University, and Harvard Medical School Dubai. Architecture students especially will enjoy studying in this ultra-modern city full of skyscrapers and unusual architectural designs. Business students do well here, too, as Dubai is a major investment destination. Plus, with more than 160 nationalities represented within the city, students can take on a highly international experience.

THAILAND:
China is a popular study abroad destination, but Thailand makes for an excellent alternative. With the vibrant city of Bangkok, unique rural programs like elephant camps, and a very affordable cost of living (and study), Thailand is a great place to experience studying abroad. Education is extremely important in Thailand, with science and engineering at the forefront of Thailand’s universities. In Bangkok, students can find a modern city full of cultural opportunities, while beyond, breathtaking natural landscapes, mountains, tribal cities, and a unique ecology offer plenty of study and recreational opportunities. Thailand is especially attractive to students who want to focus on engineering, ecology, and development. And although the educational opportunities in this country are great, what students really love is the tropical wealth, gorgeous beaches, and cheap, delicious Thai food.

NEW ZEALAND:
New Zealand’s neighbor Australia gets a lot of love from study abroad students, but this alternative destination is just as great, if not better. A beautiful environment, incredibly friendly people, plenty of outdoor and athletic opportunities, and interesting cultural activities are major draws that study abroad students may enjoy. The University of Auckland is a particularly popular destination for students seeking an alternative study abroad location, with classes including art, law, and even optometry. The harbor city of Wellington also boasts Victoria University of Wellington, right near the attractions of downtown. Students in New Zealand can take advantage of unique programs as well, including a rugby study abroad program that embraces New Zealand’s most famous sport.

TURKEY:
While Europe is a popular study abroad destination, Turkey offers students the opportunity to see a different side of Europe, as well as Asia. There are so many attractions that are great for students, including the metropolis of Istanbul, the historical cities of Troy and Ephesus, and a beautiful coastline to enjoy. Turkey is also a great jumping off point for other travels, with a location that is convenient for exploring Western Europe as well as China. Education within the country is especially attractive for business, engineering, and international relations. Turkey’s multicultural past also makes it a great place to study more than 25,000 years of history, fine arts, architecture, literature, and other creative pursuits.

GHANA:
Studying abroad in Africa is certainly unusual, but if the idea of heading to the African continent is appealing to you, Ghana is an excellent destination. The country has become a popular tourist spot due to its stability in economy, politics, and social issues. Ghana’s capital city of Accra is popular in particular for the University of Ghana, one of Africa’s most prestigious universities, and a campus that welcomes more than 1,000 international students each year. Ghana boasts gorgeous beaches, beautiful wildlife sanctuaries, and culturally diverse inhabitants that are especially friendly. Students can explore these, as well as Ghana’s historical forts, castles, craftsman traditions, and even a hopping nightclub scene.

RUSSIA:
With a dizzying 6,592,800 square miles and a tense history with the West, Russia can be an intimidating study abroad destination for some students. But it’s well worth taking the plunge to find all that this beautiful and interesting country has to offer. With so much space and so many different cities to explore, there is a seemingly endless variety of different experiences that can be found within this country. Most students prefer to study at the two biggest cities in the country, Moscow and St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg in particular is popular for art history students, with a wealth of historic arts and culture to learn about. Students who want to learn about the history and culture of Russia would enjoy Moscow as well, with a world-renowned collection of museums, theaters, and more, plus a view of the economic and political center of the country.

PERU:
Peru is an environmental, archaeological and anthropological playground, full of more than 20,000 years of history and culture and a wide variety of climates, ranging from the hot and humid Amazon to the deserts and mountain villages. Students can embrace this incredible opportunity, visiting sites and cultural wonders including Machu Picchu, remnants of the Incan empire, and Spain’s lasting influence on the country. But Peru’s experience isn’t all about the past: there is a rich modern, contemporary life influenced by Peru’s fusion of cultures. The capital city of Lima is particularly cosmopolitan, and a great spot to find colleges and universities that are open to study abroad students. The Andean city of Cusco is also a popular destination for study abroad students, as it was the capital of the Inca Empire.

TAHITI:
First things first, Tahiti is amazingly beautiful. The idyllic black sand coastlines of this Polynesian country are a major draw for potential study abroad students. But beyond the country’s natural beauty, you’ll find an amazingly interesting place to study. As part of French Polynesia, Tahiti is one of the very few remaining colonies in our modern postcolonial world, and it’s an appealing place to study what life is like for colonial subjects. Students can spend their time on the main island of Tahiti, and find the opportunity to explore the more remote island of Huahine, the interior of which is almost entirely uninhabited. Tahiti is also a great place to jump off and explore other islands of the Pacific.

Miss Earth Sabah finalists visit Kiulu river



Finalists of Miss Earth Sabah 2012 braved the rain during a visit to a river popularly known for its people-friendly fish here.

The 12 finalists visited the Kampung Poturidong Recreational Centre last Sunday as part of a host of activities lined up for them in the run-up to the pageant finale on June 16.

At the centre, the aspirants were briefed about the centre operated by the Poturidong community through a special committee headed by village elder Juara Gidal as well as about the unique "bombon" system.

Also known in other parts of Sabah as tagal, the system is a traditional method used by native communities to protect rivers and fish.

Despite the rain all of them were invited to see the fish for themselves in the Tuaran River that flows along Poturidong and were served with traditional dishes prepared by the villagers.

Kiulu Assemblyman Datuk Louis Rampas, who was also present, explained how the method has been effectively used statewide because of the respect towards native laws.

"There are also 37 villages that has created their bombon in Kiulu," Rampas said, adding each village protects the rivers within their commune.

The finalists of the Miss Earth Sabah were first introduced on June 9 and the crowning of the winner will be held at Sutera Harbour.

In the last several days, the finalists have taken part in a programme to persuade people not to use plastic bags and got to show their talents before a live audience.

20 Point Still Valid For Sabahan



Chairman of Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) Keningau, Paul Kadau condemned the statement made by Gerakan Nasional Sabah (Ganas) that the 20-Points is merely an "active fiction imagination" of somebody.

He said the statement by Ganas co-ordinator, Zainal Ajamain, was disturbing and ignored Sabah's past and all its people.

"Zainal said the 20-Points is only an active fiction imagination of somebody and that it has no legal nor constitutional basis but at the same time agreed that the 20-Points is mentioned in several articles," he said.

He said Amanah Keningau is firm on its stand that the 20-Points is and will continue to be valid, relevant and exist for as long as there is a nation called Malaysia. "So, the statement made by Zainal which clearly stated that the 20-Points are non-existent is like saying that our country, Malaysia also never existed and this could be a very dangerous thing to say," he said.

Kadau challenged any individual who believes that the 20-Points is invalid to come to Keningau and destroy the Oath Stone, which is still standing and is the pride of the people of Sabah, especially in Keningau.

He said Amanah would be contacting its lawyers for legal advice before proceeding with a police report and file a summons at the Native Court for the purpose of sogit.

Special Slot For Sabah During Prime Time



The Information Communication and Culture Ministry is prepared to give slots for drama and musical programmes produced in Sabah to be aired during prime time on Radio Televisyen Malaysia's (RTM) television.

Its Deputy Minister, Senator Datuk Maglin Dennis D'Cruz, said the ministry understood the constraints facing arts activists in Sabah and strive to find the best way to help them.

"I'll bring up this matter to the ministry and I believe there is a way for us to resolve the matter," he said at the opening of the inaugural Kadazandusun Murut (KDM) Screen Award presentation, held in conjunction with the Tadau Kaamatan at Hongkod Koisaan, near here, Friday night.

Earlier, organising chairman, Tony Francis Gitom, who is also KDM Film and Music Activist Association adviser, called on the ministry to provide slots during RTM's TV prime time for broadcast of films and musical programmes produced by Sabah production companies.

He said development of Sabah artistes and TV programmes produced in Sabah would be hampered if they were only given slots for airtime during the day or noon.

On the award presentation, Maglin said it was a noble effort for KDM artistes to contribute ideas for the development of KDM arts, including songs and films.

He hoped the programme would continue to get the support of various quarters.

We must accept a critical media



Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai said the mass media in the country is critical at times but it is a fact that must be accepted by everyone, including him, since Malaysia is a democratic country.

"We live in a democratic society and there is a certain degree of press freedom, so I never have any qualms about any of the media, which so far have been very kind to me," he said.

According to Dr Yee, who is also Resource Development and Information Technology Minister, the media practitioners are all professionals like other careers such as engineers, architects and doctors.

"As professionals, I am confident that you will do a good job and I would like to stress here that having a good relationship with the media is an important aspect in the lives of public figures," he added.

Dr Yee said this when witnessing the swearing-in of the Kota Kinabalu Jounalists Association 2012-2015 office-bearers, here, Saturday.

He also expressed confidence that the association, under the current leadership, will grow from strength to strength.

Meanwhile, newly-elected KKJA Chairman, Jimmy Goh, expressed the association's gratitude to its Advisors who, for the past 20 years, have been assisting KKJA without any conditions.

"We hope our Advisors will continue to support us because without your assistance, KKJA will not be where it is today," he said.

Goh also disclosed that KKJA hopes to be able to purchase another piece of real estate so that it can collect a regular income for its welfare programmes, especially the education fund for its members' children.

He added that as KKJA is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it will be organising several activities including a fund-raising golf tournament which will be organised by its Recreation Officer, Desmond Qwek.

honour late Sabah singer with posthumous award


The Sabah Kadazandusun Murut Welfare and Education Association (Pekadin) has recommended that the late Sabahan artiste, John Gaisah, be honoured with a posthumous award as an acknowledgement of his contribution and services to the State's music industry.

Pekadin Vice-President, Timah Dusip, said John deserved such an honour as he successfully raised the State's image through his multi-talented roles as a musician, singer and songwriter, especially in the local Kadazandusun dialect.

He added that John, who was once dubbed Sabah's Tom Jones, had carved a name for himself in the industry after winning third place in the Bintang RTM 1976 competition, which was won by the late Sudirman Arshad.

John died tragically at 26 in a road accident in Penampang on August 11, 1981.

"It was clear, after Bintang RTM 1976 John breathed new life and propelled Sabah's music industry, through Kadazandusun Murut (KDM) music, to the nation's mainstream music industry."

"He was a multi-talented artiste who could sing, play music and write songs and many of his songs are still popular today including "Norikot Nodi Bulan Lima" - a Kaamatan song. Pekadin feels his extraordinary skills and talents to be on par with P.Ramlee," he said here, Saturday.

Timah was speaking in support of John, who was selected as the winner of the evergreen category at the KDM Screen Awards organised by the Sabah KDM Film and Music Activist Association in Hongkod Koisaan, Penampang, near here, Friday night.

The awards ceremony was officiated by Information, Communication and Culture Deputy Minister, Senator Datuk Maglin Dennis D'Cruz.

The Sabah Local Artistes Association also supported that John be honoured by the State Government.

Its Vice-President, Narsisius Justin Misin, said the gifted musician had written many songs in his short lifetime.

The Suluk Group wanted to be included in the panel



The United Suluk Community Organisation (Usco) lauded the announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on the setting up of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to address the illegal immigrant issue in Sabah.

Its President, Bentan Alamin, said the setting up of the RCI reflected the sincerity of the Government in addressing the issue that is known by the people to be very a complicated matter.

However, he hoped Usco together with Parti Kebenaran, which he is representing would be included as panel members of the RCI so that they could also voice out their views.

"I believe it is time that we discuss to find the truth and not turn the mass media as the battle field," he said, adding that issues related to the RCI had also been raised by political parties.

"The Suluk and Bajau communities are natives of this State and not migrants from the neighbouring country coming into Sabah without any document," he said.

He also dread to imagine the feeling of someone who had valid identity documents for years but still considered as migrant.

Voice: Are they should be included as the Native of Sabah? Those Suluks who were born before Sabah Independence Day in 1963 should be included as a Sabahan but for those Suluks who came to Sabah in the late 60s should not be considered as the Sabahan Native. They were migrated from The Philiphine. The Bajau Laut was one of the Suluk Ethnic (Correct me if I'm wrong). The Original Bajaus only can be found at Tuaran, Kudat, Kota Belud, Papar and Beaufort. While the original people at Lahad Datu, Tawau, Sandakan was the Sungais and Tidungs. Now it up to the government to considered their demand. For me there is no such thing for that demand. Some organization uses different approach to obscure the eye of the government to get sympathy.  Harry George

My Life My Story: The Pox


It was an upsetting week for me... I'm expecting to have a good traveling week but my children were infected by the so-called chickenpox disease. What can do... all my planning were postponed. First my wife was the one being infected by this disease than spread out to my children. My daughter was badly infected by this chickenpox. The disease can be divided into two types, one was called as chickenpox and the other one was called as the smallpox. My daughter was infected from this chickenpox form my wife after one week her recover from the disease. Luckily I was infected by this disease when I was still a baby and my body are immune to the disease. My son, was being infected too but luckily the quantity of the pox was less than my daughter and it took only three days for him to recover from it.



First, my wife used the Hospital medicine but my mother told me to use a herbal treatment. The herbal medision called by the Dusuns and the Kadazans as "Radap". A tree used as fences to prevent the buffalo from entering the planting field back in the olden days. The so-called Radap were really hard to find these day. Since I'm living in Ranau now, I cannot find it because I'm not familiar with this area. Luckily it was a school holiday and I got chance to go back home to Tamparuli. It took me three days to find this plant where the placed which I know it grow were already being develop and the big Radap tree were demolished. I went to my uncle house at Kionsom Lama and ask for the Radap but I 'm disappointed when the Radap tree was withered too. So I went to my cousin house at Kionsom Bawah near to Nohirot Telibong and for the sack of my tiring leg I finally found this plant. I took the bark of the plant and take several small trees branches for my future used and for breeding it.

It will took one week to recover from this disease. The herbal "Radap" was once used by my mother to treat me from this disease many years ago. First, you need to mix the bark of the plant with hot water. Wait for 10 minutes and drink it for at least 4 times a day. The effect will show that all the pox will be spring out from the human skin. Drinks it until all the pox appear from your body. The sign that all the pox already being spring out from your body was it will appear at your palm and sole. If you believe in Herbal medicine it is easy for adapting it. My wife also went to the hospital to get treatment and the doctor gave Calamine Creame to reduce the itchy pain.

Now my daughter is slowly recovering from the pox or in Malays Language "Cacar Air". There are other herbal medicine that can treat this disease such as the "Grass Roots" or in Malays Akar Lalang, Lime tree thorn and Kapok Tree thorn. Mixed it all together and drinks it. For better treatment go to the nearest hospital and get advise from experience person. I shared some picture for you all. Till then, we will meet again soon. Bye and hope this information can ease the difficultly in our daily life routine and problems.

Inilah Melinda Louis, 22 tahun dari Kg Gading, Telupid yang menewaskan 41 peserta lain untuk muncul Unduk Ngadau 2012 sempena Pesta Kaamatan peringkat negeri Sabah di KDCA, Penampang pada 31 Mei 2012. Ini sejarah tersendiri kerana Telupid buat pertama kalinya menang Unduk Ngadau, mengenepikan dominasi Penampang yang mendominasi pertandingan ini sejak 1960an sehingga sekarang.

Melinda Louis berkata dia tidak menyangka memenangi Unduk Ngadau 2012 kerana peserta lain juga jelita dan amat berpengalaman dan mempunyai keistimewaan tersendiri. Melinda menghadiahkan kemenangan ini kepada daerah Telupid yang menang Unduk Ngadau peringkat negeri buat pertama kalinya.

Sebenarnya menurut Melinda, dia dipilih mewakili Telupid pada Unduk Ngadau 2008 ketika berusia 18 tahun namun tidak dapat berbuat demikian kerana melanjutkan pengajian. Nampaknya penantian 4 tahun selepas itu tidak sia sia bagi Melinda Louis, keluarganya dan seluruh daerah Telupid.

"I didn’t expect to win this title as all the finalists are very experienced and beautiful in their own ways. However, this winning is a special gift to my district, first time winning the state-level Unduk Ngadau,” said Melinda.

“I was chosen to represent Telupid in the state level in 2008 but I did not manage to stand for my district because I had to continue my study,” said the second child of six siblings who took home RM68,800 worth of prizes.
