A statistics of suicide rates in 2006 showed that 30-35 Malaysian Indians per 100,000 committed or attempted to commit suicide annually compared to 10-12 Malaysians per 100,000.
Read more about it here.
There is this news about a heartbroken 22-year-old Indian gal who had jumped from a condominium in Serdang yesterday after DNA test confirmed that a charred body found in a burnt car last month was her boyfriend, K Yogendran, 27.
She had just graduated from her studies and received a scholarship for her studies. This proves that even educated gals or guys will act like imbeciles when it comes to the matters of the heart.
However, I personally think that she is stupid. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Who knows? It might be a good thing that her boyfriend died and that she will catch a better one.
Moreover, guys are not that emotional and can get through a divorce or a break up quicker. For instance, we can see in everyday events that when a wife dies, after a few months or even a few days, the 'grieving' husband suddenly marries someone younger.
So, if a man can be that quick to recover from a heartbreak or when his wife dies, why can't the women be the same? I am sure that women can be more heartless than that. If man can be bastards, woman can be bitches. Besides, men loves bitches.
Bernama on 15th May 2011, reported an article titled "Suicide Rates Higher Among Those in Custody, Says Psychiarist".
The highest percentage of suicide cases is from the Chinese community where in the total of 328 suicidal deaths in 2009, 47.5% is from the Chinese community.
The second highest was from teh Indian community (21.3%) followed by the Malays (13.4%) and Sabah/Sarawak ethnic groups (3.4%).
731 suicide cases had been recorded between 2007 and 2009 where 113 were for 2007, 290 for 2008 and 328 for 2009.
For those motherfuckers who called themselves Malay Muslims who are ignorant to the extend that they would rather commit suicide, read this hadith below.
"He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire (forever) and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-Fire." (Bukhari, Janaiz 84)
If you want to be in hell for eternity, go ahead and take your own life. I don't care.
Syria forces shoot dead 16 in protests - activistsAMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian forces shot dead 16 people on Friday when they fired on protesters demanding the removal of President Bashar al-Assad, activists said, and European powers said Damascus should face tougher sanctions for the violence.
Tens of thousands of people rallied across the country, defying Assad's military crackdown and ignoring a pledge that his tycoon cousin Rami Makhlouf, a symbol of corruption, would renounce his business empire and channel his wealth to charity.
The worst bloodshed was in Homs, where activists said eight protesters were killed and state television said a policeman was killed by gunmen. One person was also reported killed in the northern commercial hub of Aleppo, the first protester to die there since unrest erupted in the south of the country in March.
Friday Muslim prayers have provided a platform for the biggest protests in the three-month uprising, inspired by revolts which have overthrown the leaders of Egypt and Tunisia and challenged autocrats across the Arab world.
Activists said tens of thousands of people protested in the southern province of Deraa where the revolt against Assad's rule began, as well as in the Kurdish east, the city of Hama north of Damascus, and suburbs of the capital itself.
Two northern towns were also encircled by army units, residents said, five days after the military retook the rebellious town of Jisr al-Shughour and sent thousands of refugees streaming across the nearby border into Turkey.
Syrian rights groups say 1,300 civilians and more than 300 soldiers and police have been killed since the protests broke out in March against 41 years of rule by the Assad family, and 10,000 people have been detained.
Authorities blame the violence on armed groups and Islamists, backed by foreign powers. Syria has barred most international journalists, making it difficult to verify accounts from activists and officials.
Assad has responded to the unrest with a mix of military repression and political gestures aimed at addressing protesters' grievances.
On Thursday state media said Makhlouf was quitting business and handing proceeds to charity. Makhlouf controls a string of businesses including Syria's largest mobile phone operator, duty free shops, an oil concession, an airline company and hotel, construction concerns, and shares in at least one bank.
He has been subject to U.S. sanctions since 2007 for what Washington calls public corruption, as well as EU sanctions imposed in May, but repeatedly maintained that he was a legitimate businessman whose firms employ thousands of Syrians.
Activists said Makhlouf's step by itself would not curb the momentum of protests. They said Assad, who has only spoken twice in public since the uprising started, was expected to address the country soon and might unveil further measures.
PRESSURE ON ASSAD
Assad faces international condemnation over the violence, and has seen the first signs of cracks in his security forces after a clash in Jisr al-Shughour earlier this month in which the government said 120 security personnel were killed.
There have been no mass desertions from the military, but analysts say it is unclear how long the loyalty of rank and file Sunni Muslim conscripts will last if the crackdown on mainly Sunni protesters continues.
Assad's family and many military commanders are members of the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shi'ite Islam.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Friday that France and Germany had agreed to lobby for stronger sanctions against Syria for "unacceptable actions and repression" of protesters.
Damascus is already subject to targeted U.S. and European Union sanctions against its leadership, and EU nations have been preparing a fresh round of sanctions aimed at companies and banks, according to European diplomats.
But France has been unable to rally support at the U.N. Security Council for a resolution condemning Assad's crackdown, in part because of reluctance from veto-holding council members China and Russia.
"I believe there is a realisation that force is being used against the people in a way that is not acceptable," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said after talks with Sarkozy. "Therefore both of us will talk to Russia in our own ways to (ensure) we are successful."
Germany's Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle spoke to his Brazilian counterpart Celso Amorim, urging a clear response by the Security Council to the violence in Syria, German Foreign Ministry sources said.
A witness in the Damascus suburb of Irbin said protesters burned a Russian flag to protest against Moscow's stance.
Syrian forces have surrounded two towns on the main north-south road linking Damascus with Aleppo. Villagers have been streaming out of the towns, fearful of an assault similar to the one witessed in Jisr al-Shughour.
The state news agency has said army units deployed near Khan Sheikhoun and Maarat al-Numaan to ensure the highway's safety.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu held talks with a Syrian envoy on Thursday in which he called on Damascus to end the violent crackdown and pass democratic reforms.
Turkish officials said the number of refugees who had crossed over from Syria had reached 9,600, and another 10,000 were sheltering by the border just inside Syria.
In the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli two people were killed in a clash between Sunni and Alawite residents, a military source said, after an anti-Assad demonstration erupted following noon prayers.
The source said one of those killed was an off-duty soldier caught in the crossfire and the other person was a civilian. Four people were wounded but it was not clear from which side.

Let's see if those in Bersih have balls to continue with their illegal demo is one of them is shot dead by the police.
Or is this just a disguise for NATO to launch an attack on Malaysia if Bersih people were beaten up by FRU or the police.
ISA? Where are you? Be ready for another racial clash in the new millenium due to the inaction of the 'Menteri Amaran'.
Better catch all those motherfuckers before 9th July. I really would love to see Pemuda UMNO dudes punches those in Bersih on that day.
Then we'll see if Pemuda UMNO is tough, or those stupid assholes in Bersih is tough.
Rintihan iklas dari seorang kawan ...
A,kum Tan Sri. Sihat ke? Lama tak borak. Anyway, since hang rapat dgn some politicians, saja je nak ngomel :-). Aku rasa, kalau Najib panggil election soon, Melayu akan habis. Sebabnya, kebanyakan professional Melayu terang-terang dah tolak UMNO, ni kalau tengok yang aku kenal lah. Most are highly educated, in public service. Contoh macam Drs, engineers. Dia orang semua banyak pengaruh actually dengan masyarakat. Like it or not, orang lebih percaya cakap seorang doktor dari seorang politician Melayu, esp from UMNO sekarang ni for example.So, boleh nampak effectnya pada masyarakat. Rasanya salah politicianMelayu yang rata-ratanya ramai tak educated sangat, tamak, rasuah..Politik Melayu dah tenat sebenarnya. Banayak dasar dah terang2 dipersoal. Kebanyak isu sebenarnya senang je nak jawab /tangkis esp dari golongan Cauvinis Cina, tapi politikus Melayu takde otak. Cakap tah apa-apa. Lebih pada emosional. Data banyak, guna saja data kerajaan. Tunjukkan nisbah rakyat, nisbah orang kaya etc antara kaum. Akan nampak jelas.Ten jawab secara ilmiah. Takkan l;ah ramai2 Melayu yang ada scroll dari Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard hatta UM sekalipun takleh nak buat perkiraan yang begitu simple kan? Politis Melayu menari sumbang ikut gendang Cauvinis Cina dan tali barut DSAI. ( I consider him the worst Malay ever !)Jangan harap kalau PRU nanti orang Cina kat bandar akan sokong BN , sebab like it or not, kalau still BN perintah pun, township kena maintain. It's a given,. They know it. Tengok pilihanray Sarawak baru-baru ni. The nak harapkan orang kat luar bandar. Melayu dah pecah dah. Melayu urban dah tak sokong UMNO truthfully, dek kerana cerita-cerita and tindak tanduk politikus Melayu yang menjengkelkan. Cerita-cerita sensari macam isu Khir Toyo ( gila banyak duit bayar 6 juta renovate garden!! Aku dengar pun marah..) lagi lah menaikkan panas baran orang. UMNO dah hilang taring dah, cakap sikit kena tuduh racist etc. Tapi kalau cauvinis Cina cakap, ok pulak, sebab Melayu yang dulunya disuap dgn biasiswa kerajaan ( walaupun kalau ikut merit, mungkin tak layak...dah lupa diri) pun sokong jugak. Kononnya new "Malaysian". Lupa agaknya ke tak terfikir kat benak, kalau power dah hilang, most likely kekayaan nantio akan di monopli satu kaum saja. Ingat dia orang akan bagi chance ke kat Melayu? So, hang cakap lah kay sapa2 yang hang rapat dan boleh dipercayai supaya mayabe UMNO kena buat brai storming,dan kalau perlu contohi political parties kat Singapore, pilih calon professional yang benar-benar layak, yang tak perlu pada habuan pada rasuah dan sebagainya untuk survive bila mana karier politik dah berakhir nanti. Masa depan anak-anak Melayu tergugat sebenarnya, sebab ramai masih dalam gelumag kemiskinan. Sapa nak pertahankan hak mereka, atau tolong mereka? Like it or not, racial politics are here to stay. memang tak boleh generalized sebaba ada rakan2 bukan Melayu bukan cauvinis, tapi kebanyakan dari Cina Malaysia adalah begitu. Tapi Melayu mudah lupa! "
This proves that those IT companies hired by the Ministries are not so good that they could not stop 'local' hackers from breaching the sites.
Proves once and for all, that those hired by the Ministries are imbeciles and could not even stop a group of hacker from creating havoc on the sites. Well spent money...
The government should combat piracy but by banning the file sharing sites is a breach of the freedom of the internet promised by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad during his previous administration.
If the government is really SERIOUS about combating piracy, the enforcement agencies should raid the shops that sells pirated CDs and DVDs daily until it is totally wiped out.
And another question, why the file sharing sites where Anwar fucking a hooker can be seen freely and shared on those sites?
Why not BLOCK PORN sites? Why? Does this mean that those responsible for blocking the file sharing sites loves to watch PORN online even during work?
Or does the PORN sites owner are paying them bribes to keep the PORN sites online available so that school kids will spend their parents hard earned money at cyber cafes to watch porn and then go and rape their classmate?
Let's watch PORN everyone especially those in PAS who are upholding the rights of Muslim men to have 4 wives but will not be fair to them. Watching vulgarism will give you the uncontrallable urge to fuck anyone you can get your hands on, even if it's your 5 years old daughter.
Then some of the motherfuckers can go rape their own flesh and blood and say to the police it's better for him to do it than let anyone else do it and get a kicking on the dick from a female police.
LONG LIVE PORN WEBSITES! Let's go watch them now and masturbate your heart out! At least your wife can get some rest tonight after she did not get any help from you in the kitchen today!
Tourism Minister defends RM1.8 million Facebook promo
TOURISM Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen was supposed to be seething in anger with reports insinuating the ministry spent RM1.8 million on six Facebook pages.
The Malay Mail senior writer Marhalim Abas braved the traffic and a possible tongue lashing to find out what was really going on.
Q: What is the real story behind the RM1.8 million?
A: The ministry's efforts to embark on a digital promotional campaign and branding via the social media was heavily twisted by Loke (DAP MP Anthony Loke) and caused confusion among Facebook fans and the media. He said the ministry spent RM1.8 million to create six Facebook pages. It was reported in the Chinese Press with, which I see, an intent to mislead the public.
Q: What was the money used for then?
A: Firstly, it was not used to develop the Facebook pages; you and I know those are free. Even I started my DrYenYen page on Facebook for free. Of course it's stupid (to spend that amount) since it costs nothing to set up a page. Some media correctly reported the sum was for a social media advertising campaign.
Secondly, the sum was used to create and develop the campaign and branding of six major tourism events -- Citrawarna; 1Malaysia Mega Sale and Year End Sale; Night Festival; Fabulous Food 1Malaysia; 1Malaysia Contemporary Art Tourism and 1Malaysia Green; and Clean Campaign. The campaign involves content. Promoting and branding a campaign need back servers. You also need to manage the campaign and monitor the response.
Thirdly, data collection and data monitoring. Fourth, campaign evaluation. We don't have experts in Tourism Malaysia. It's okay if it's just your personal Facebook page but this is a global brand, a national advertising campaign.
Q: Who is running the campaign?
A: Our advertising agency. They have been entrusted with domestic tourism promotion. They used to do TV, radio, billboards and print campaigns, and now social media. See what it says? (while holding up a Press clipping) Tourism Malaysia spends RM1.8 million on Facebook. Of course everyone wants an explanation! The Deputy Minister (Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit) was clear but he (Loke) skipped so many (details) and said even children know Facebook is free.
He purposely distracted people from the real issue. I'm happy to report the Citrawarna page has garnered 24,000 fans in less than a month. We are aiming for at least 120,000 fans within six months for the entire campaign.
One newspapers interviewed many people who talked about how much it costs to develop a website. I'm not talking because this is not a website.
Q: You said the papers got the wrong Facebook page. Can you show us the right one?
A: People think a social media campaign is simple. I deny the attempt by DAP, especially Loke. Of course, when people see his statement, they say it's stupid as Facebook is free. You see the confusion created by DAP? This is a national tourism campaign which forms the RM56 billion national economy.
This is not our website, this is an open country (while holding up another Press clipping). Ours is here, Tourism Malaysia Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia (shows the web page on her iPad). Whoever did the interviews was barking up the wrong tree. You should interview the social media advertising agency.
Q: Why advertise in social media?
A: The world is going digital. The cost of digital advertising is going up because everybody is using social media. Total advertising in social media last year was RM12.7 billion. If you're not in the social media, you are outdated. We need to attract new types of tourists, the so-called Foreign Individual Tourist or FIT. They go on packages. They check AirAsia (website) and pack their bags. Or they go on Facebook. Facebook has 700 million fans, 10 million of whom are Malaysian, so we have to go to social media and its advertising is not free.
Do you know why Google and and Facebook are so rich? Because you and I are all their fans. Tourism Malaysia's social media campaign must be top class. We cannot be mediocre. How can Loke talk about Penang Tourism 'not having to pay anything'? Theirs is only a Facebook page! No campaign, no applications, contest or advertising. It's like a personal page. In two years, Penang Tourism gained 120,000 fans. Loke is either clueless or wants to distract (the attention) from my social media campaign, which is something the country needs.
Q: Are other countries promoting their tourism via social media?
A: Australia's tourism authority announced they are going to spent RM150 million annually for three years on social media advertising, promotion and marketing. Queensland is spending RM5 million this year for social media while the Philippines is spending RM7 million. Thailand's tourism authority is increasing its budget for social media by 40 per cent. There is a clear shift towards social media. That's why we went that way.
Q: Why is Impact Creations Sdn Bhd handling the social media advertising campaign?
A: Because it is my advertising agency in change of domestic tourism promotion. They manage everything so they can co-ordinate and collaborate their campaigns on TV, radio, billboards and electronics. We asked them to start on the social media campaign. We launched the Facebook page on May 18.
I read someone claimed she went to the page and found nothing much there. Of course, this is a six-month campaign. Another said he did not see RM1.8 million on the page. What about my advertising on Google and Facebook? Social media is not cheap. The Opposition is clever. Take one part and blow it open. I must state I consider the statements (by Loke) an attempt to mislead and discredit Tourism Malaysia.
Q: Where can we see the advertisements?
A: Its on CNN. Have you seen the Malaysia Truly Asia campaign? Our first advertisement on the social media campaign is on Citrawarna, on our Facebook Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia. The advertisements are related to my events.
Q: Why is Impact Creations involved in the social media campaign?
A: As I said before, Impact Creations is the domestic tourism promotion. The tourism promotion is divided into different countries. China and East Asia are under Mascom and Oceania (under) Saatchi. These companies won the tender that created a lot of brouhaha before. They all got an annual RM30 million contract for three years and RM30 million is the ceiling, they cannot go higher.
Q: It was alleged they were given the tender because they are your friends.
A: People can say what they want. I have been a politician for 45 years, everyone is my friend. The owner of Mascom is my friend. M&C Saatchi's Datin Sharifah (Datin Sharifah Menjelara Hussein) is my friend. You are also my friend. The agencies won in an open tender.
I did not seat in the tender decision committee. I have been accused without justification. The tender board chose these companies for financial and technical reasons. I have answered the allegations clearly in The Star (newspaper) and I answered to Parliament clearly as well.
Impact Creations have the right to outsource or in-source.
After seeing the comments in Facebook, it was important for me to clear everyone's minds. When we have social media campaigns, even my son who is overseas can see what's going on.
Q: Besides Facebook, what other social media are you working with?
A: Mostly Facebook because it's interactive and visual. Twitter is mostly text. It is now important to go to social media for tourism campaign. Print is losing out.
Q: Because print is seen as boring?
A: Yes, sorry. But the most positive and negative reactions are from you.
Taken from The Malay Mail.
In another news, an enormous sum of RM1.8 million had been spent on Facebook by The Tourism Ministry.
The majority of the people will not care about the bull shit that you are giving, they only see the RM1.8 million which could be better spent for the betterment of the majority of the people.
I bet that the cronies of the Tourism Minister are getting a large chunk of the money. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should come in and investigate this because people might think yes, a Minister can get away with anything.
If everyone is her friend, why didn't she give the RM1.8 million to me? I sure can do a lot of things with RM1.8 million. MACC should definitely go in and investigate this crap!
Although someone from DAP has brought this issue up, what he said has some valid points!
I am still an UMNO supporter. Surely an UMNO supporter can say whatever he likes and criticise what seems wrong so that UMNO will be better. But if UMNO wants to remain the way it is, it's up to you.
Why should I care since you too don't give a damn? YES man will make BN loses like what it had experienced in 2008. Let's have more of the YES man!
