Salam Sdr Khairy,
Pertama, saya ingin mengucapkan tahniah diatas pemilihan saudara oleh 'perwakilan G2' sebagai Ketua Pemuda UMNO yang baru. Saya mengucapkan selamat maju jaya dan bertugaslah! dengan ikhlas dan penuh tanggungjawab kerana jawatan saudara datang dengan tugas yang berat dan penuh keinsafan dalam menambat semula hati majoriti rakyat Malaysia terutama anak-anak muda Melayu dan bukanlah satu jawatan untuk dicuba-cuba dan tidak dipandang serius hanya apabila sudah menang barulah mahu merangka perancangan. Tugas pertama yang bakal membebani saudara adalah menghadapi PRK di 2 bukit dan 1 batang; maka gempurlah ketiga-tiga kawasan ini dan berusahalah untuk menawan semula agar moral Pemuda UMNO akan kembali tinggi dan prestasi buruk 2 PRK yang lepas tidak berulang lagi.
Namun sebelum sempat saudara memacu sayap Pemuda UMNO ke medan pertarungan suka bagi saya untuk melontarkan beberapa persoalan yang pada hemat saya perlu ada jawapan dan hujah bernas untuk kami rakan pemuda UMNO kampungan boleh menerima keputusan yang dibuat hari Rabu sudah dengan hati yang lebih terbuka. Persoalan yang ingin saya kemukakan adalah seperti berikut;
1. Saya begitu hairan bagaimana Saudara begitu pasti dan yakin saudara tidak bersalah dalam kes lembaga displin padahal sudah jatuh hukuman bersalah ke atas saudara cuma dilepaskan dengan amaran. Sebagai seorang pemimpin yang kredibilitinya dicurigai adakah tidak menjadi satu risiko bagi saudara untuk terus bertanding dan memberi bebanan yang cukup hebat buat parti UMNO memberikan penerangan terhadap persepsi ini apabila saudara terpilih?! Nyata mimpi tersebut menjadi kenyataan apabila saudara benar2 terpilih dan sekarang pihak pembangkang boleh bertepuk tangan kerana mereka mempunyai senjata yang paling enteng iaitu kredibiliti saudara yang 'rasuah politik' tetapi diterima perwakilan G2 dek kedangkalan mereka membuat percaturan atau adakah perwakilan ini kemaruk habuan?
2. Tidakkah demografi calon-calon yang bertanding harus menjadi satu persoalan bagi perwakilan yang memilih sehinggakan terpilihnya 4 orang exco dari satu bahagian yang baru dan agak kecil iaitu PUTRAJAYA. Hebat benar orang Putrajaya waima 4 pemimpin mudanya terpilih untuk sama-sama menganggotai barisan saf saudara?
3. Perlukah seseorang setiausaha bahagian diberi lebih tekanan dan bebanan sebagai seorang exco Pemuda tatkala keperluan pimpinan bahagian amat memerlukan seorang setiausaha bahagian untuk menguruskan perjalanan bahagian UMNO tersebut atau Setiausaha Bahagian UMNO Kepala Batas itu memang benar2 seorang yang 'multi tasking' dalam menjalankan tugas beliau?
4. Adakah kita sebagai pemuda UMNO yang setia tidak risau tatkala pemilihan exco berpihak kepada seorang bekas pimpinan PKR yang kini menjawat jawatan dalam UMNO Shah Alam. Sebagaimana kita tidak membenarkan saudara Ezam bertanding atas sebab musabab tertentu, bagaimana pula kita mengenalpasti calon atau sekarang ini terpilih sebagai exco tidak lebih merupakan kuda trojan bagi pihak lawan?
Saya merasakan persoalan ini harus dijawab oleh Saudara sendiri dan bagaimana saudara harus mengubah persepsi masyarakat tentang keupayaan saudara dan barisan kepimpinan Pemuda UMNO dalam bergerak dan berdamping dengan anak-anak muda. Kerana kita sememangnya tidak cukup masa dalam menghadapi PRU akan datang dimana lebih 9 juta pengundi baru akan berdaftar. Manfaat kan lah masa ini mendekati dan mendampingi mereka dan jangan sekali2 berpatah arang dan menidakkan peranan dan buah fikiran anak muda yang bakal menjadi penentu hala tuju pemerintahan negara.
Harap penjelasan saudara dalam soal ini.

KJ won big! 304 votes against 254 for KT and 232 for MM. Ironically during nomination it was the other way around when MM led handsomely along the way till this last ditch today. Very unfortunate him but this is UMNO politics.. in particular this is UMNO youth politics. Whoever have money leads.. you could never take away from it.
And as we (read: delegates) have chosen a proven guilty candidate who was given green light to contest only by stern warning as our leader, we are sending bad signal to the public. Yes, we will know in 2 weeks time within the tri-by election.. by far how we will be faired amongst the real 'raja' - the rakyat. We'll see then.. 'nanti jangan pulak ingat kita tak pernah kata.. i told you so..'
p/s: apologies, i just cant stop writing about politics. It's in the blood.

The fate in this year UEFA champions league has been thumbed last Friday with Villareal and Manchu United /Porto FC are on our way for the final in Rome. It won't be an easy draw as people would think off. Villareal was a losing semi-finalist to us, during our road to final in 2005/06 Finals only losing with 1-0 aggregate. This year, Villareal looks more outstanding and stronger and managed to get through the group stages as a runners up to Manchu Utd before defeating Panathinaikos in the first knockout stage. That's really a testimony to this spaniard team better known as 'The Yellow Submarine'
Even if we pass thru El Submarino Amarillo, we will indeed have to face either Manchu Utd or Porto FC in the semis. The favourite would be the 2008 Europe Champions themselves, the red devils but we hope Porto FC at least can give Man Utd a good run of their money like what Porto did with another spanish team, Atletico Madrid earlier. Fingers crossed! It will be a dream come true to meet Porto FC who actually from our group stage round and obviously we have a better head to head meeting but Man Utd still have an upper hand only lately showing some meltdown (losing back to back to Liverpool 1-4 last week and Fulham 0-2 earlier yesterday). Whatever it is, we have to focus on ourselves and pickup pieces as we are still running in at least 3 competitions (the FA Cup, UCL and last not least the 'fading chance' in EPL championship).
Nevertheless, I wont be whining about ourselves and the chances had people realise that we are unbeaten in 16 premier league games. That's hell of a record in order to catch up with another 'big 3'. The focus and the team's determination to be back in big four can be reflected on the pitch and we are improving strength to strength to capitalise our great run for that title challenge. Yesterday's game in St James park stamped our position back in the big four as we beaten Newcastle 3 to 1 and we are now 3 points ahead Aston Villa who will be visiting Anfield tonite. I am sure Liverpool is eyeing a good result to position themselves 1 point behind league leader Manchu Utd who lost to Fulham yesterday and The Reds hopefully would do a good favour for us as well by beating Martin O' neill Villans team. Go Reds!!!. :)
Now, to add another salt to this fourth position in the EPL league challenge which quarantee a qualification for UEFA champions' league next year, Aston Villa will see Manchu Utd next at Old Trafford after the international week. And a wounded lion like Man Utd definitely will roar and release all their cylinders to win the fixture as these last few games of the season is vital and important to keep themselves the chance for a third in a row championship medal. Again, we love u Sir Alex to complete the job for us and definitely you'll be well acknowledged in our 'Rival Manager End Season Assist Hall of Fame.' You'll be the man arsenal most remembered, Sir Alex ;)
This is our latest position after last night game!
a champions league berth in our hand!

Today; the most anticipated announcement on media would be the SPM results. It would be either celebrated with joy or accepted in despair. Which ever which... take it as it go. This is not the end of the world yet it is only the beginning to life. My brother is also one of many SPM aspirants who would seek his destiny today. I hope he will do good or maybe even better than me. Good luck, eh bro!
I still remember the day I went back to koleq for my SPM result. It wasn't a cool day after all. Many of us come back with different kind of afterschool styles. It was the opportunity to show off a lil bit especially when one came with design jeans and rugged rock t shirt and walk in front of teachers especially those who you despised all along with a bit of character (read: dengan lagaknya) but indeed, you give some respects to these teachers. I think it was kind over to do such things just to prove you are no longer a student anymore.
I was not one of the top students back then when the results came out. In fact, I was unfortunate to be amongst the 'agregat lebih 10' . Unlike my other peers who excelled in their result, i was left all alone thinking what i did wrong. For a boarding school student to get any less that 10 agregate was unacceptable, i thought. It really hit me and it took me some weeks to get it over...
Looking back after 13 years, i believe my SPM results really served me well. It still help me for a place in UiTM. It has encouraged me to perform even better in my studies at university level . It led me to a different kind of life and met different set of peoples. and today I am grateful that I took the path I've taken which my SPM result has been a part influential. It has been a whining yet a beautiful life after all.
As Mr Forrest gump said it;
"My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
I hope I will capture more in life because the world we live in is worth fighting for.

Prologue - Big Mistake
It's 15 minutes past. I was finishing my routine 'internet session' to dedicate one special posting to my milla as today's her birthday. However i only realised that i was quarter hour late to wish her in person when the clock tick midnight. Without putting myself in more trouble I ran down the staircase as hard as i can but to find my loved already buat muka chom (smirked her face) due to my lateness. "Oh no! One big mistake already? Now how?!", utter me to myself. As i tried everything to please her for my unconcern attitude; my mind was already working, and it's working real fast! "Damage was done, my dear and now you need a backup plan to make things all right again..." my inner me was telling me right.
Chapter One - My Destiny
As we were reaching the final moment of our meeting at Pelita Subang Jaya, my mind just can stop thinking what's the plan for my reconciliation. I need to do something right and it must have the element of surprises. The fact that i love surprises made me more excited and believe it can work through. First stop was Cake Sense. I need to get the best cake for my surprise and it has to be something my milla would love. Between a mousse cake and a tiramisu; which is more preferrable, eh?! After a short consultation with (thank you! you know who you are) I settled with tiramisu. I hope my judgement was right.
Next, the nearest florist. Woman loves flowers and it melts a woman's heart. A simple red rose with her favourite lavender should be the right combination to cheer her up. When i was in UK, i sent a bouquet of roses on her birthday thru' online services but this time it's too late to arrange for one. Afterall, i need a fresh idea to set the mood straight. My mind was juggling for ideas.. hmmm.
It's getting noon (and it's friday) and i rushed myself to Memory Lane to get her a simple yet beautiful birthday card. There wasnt much choice for wifey. Time was against me. Nevertheless as i always said, tuhan mempunyai esa,manusia mempunyai asa; my luck was with me. Amongst the limited choice that i have, there's stood one lovely card that later would complete my destiny. It was indeed the right choice.
Chapter Two - Everything in Place
This was how the suprise would work. A cake with lovely birthday wishes, a pretty red rose which was beautifully wrapped and a meaningful birthday card with my personal touching words. All-in-one go were placed in the fridge for Milla to find. Buleh terkejut kan?! ;) Cool eh..
I've tried to put everthing at one place but due to the limited space, i have compensated the card. Afterall, It should stand on its own somewhere in the fridge as you could see in these exhibits;
exhibit 1: tiramisu
exhibit 2: rose and lavender
exhibit 3: ambil kedudukan
Chapter Three - A Perfect End
It was nearly 6 pm. I havent got any call from her yet. Kind of worried though but i convinced myself that everything will turn well. The phone rang and it's her. "Yes my darling, you want me to come and pick you up now... What?! You need to stay a bit longer?! Why?! ohhh ok.. then i will wait for you at mom's, ok! Ok.. cheerio. Love u, yang.." Ohh Darn.. how come it turn out like this. Is she dissappointed with me still?! Cant be.. my milla never merajuk that long. Now i become a bit anxious. This waiting game was killing me. As day turned dark, came one S.O.S call i've been hoping for. My brother and 2 lil cousins were somewhere in Shah Alam and i need a rescue plan to save the day. With their helps and witty ideas the plan sticks with little make do. We prayed hard it turns good... and indeed it was really a perfect ending.
Epilogue - The Secret of Lasting Marriage
Suprise!!!! That was the signal to let everybody out from their hiding place. Milla was confused yet overhelmed. I knew she never expected we came out with this crazy ideas. Yes, she cried. There was a tearful joy in her eyes. Everybody did their part and they did it well.. we had the last laugh and we really enjoy the moment in making her smile again and i, of course simply proud of myself. As we had our dinner and have a taste of tiramisu, i could sense that she fell in love with me once more... :)
