Ng Yen Yen’s way of empowering women in Malaysia

I wonder if there is a serious lack of politicians who are women in our Federal Government? Because I think only morons will adopt the examples of lesser developed countries and suggest to apply to our country. What is this woman thinking?

Better shelter when a woman owns the house
By LEE YUK PENG

KUALA LUMPUR: Let the wife be the owner of the low-cost home.

This has been the practice in India from 2005 as a way to protect mothers and children as well as a way to prevent husbands from selling the property.

Pakistan introduced similar schemes recently to protect widows and their children and to stop relatives from taking the property away.

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said she would be proposing to the Housing and Local Government Ministry to look into the possibility of similar practices to be introduced here.

Of course, I am all for wives owning a piece of the property. In fact, the cars, the house and everything my husband owns, has my name in it. But that’s because he loves me and trusts me enough. Not because he is forced by the law. Moreoever, we now know what a chore it is to transfer the ownership of a deceased person’s properties to the wife. Even a stupid bike’s ownership belonging to the deceased need a shit load of paperworks before the wife can sell off the old junk. Married women, do make sure you get all the paperworks done or else it is one helluva nightmare to claim properties belonging to dead husband. I am talking from experience, having deal with my sis-in-law’s matters.

And is Ng Yen Yen suggesting that poor men are not to be trusted even with a RM25,000 low cost house? Is she saying that all poor men are definitely going to abscond with a RM25K house, leaving the wives homeless? Or does Ng Yen Yen has the vision that we Malaysian women are going to get the kind of treatment like women in the third world? Oh do you know that in Pakistan, if the husband suspects the wife cheats on him, he has the right to whack her senseless? The other day, I watched one documentary where this husband cuts off his wife’s nose, gouged out her eyes and left her to bleed to death. She didn’t die and is now nose-less and eye-less.

Remember this is the Ng Yen Yen who supports men to have mistresses? Yeap, she said so during the Chua Soi Lek’s case. This is also the Ng Yen Yen who said Maid in China will cause all Malaysian men to get lusty.

Aiyorr….are we seriously lacking women politicians or what ah?

She is the most tomboyish woman minister i ever seen. always blurt nonsense. I really pity the husband having a tomboy look wife sleeping beside him. Wanna kick legs on bed also sian. HA Ha Ha…

  4. she’s an idiot, full stop

  5. Dumb Blonde equivalent lah. I agree too, all the clever ones got jobs and family to look after, only air brain like YenYen left to fill the seat.

    Actually, now that you mentioned, who thinks 5xmom should try and run for Parliamentary seat, just like Jeff mah! 4 years goes by very fast one, you prepare now, just in time loh!

    Wah if you in the Dewan, sure alot of dumb blonde MPs kena sapu one…..what you think good?

  6. I thought it was an excellent idea. If the husband has an affair, remarried or just run away, at least the wife has the house. For the muslims, when the husband dies, his property has to be divided among his family, his children and the wives. So this way, the wife can at least keep the property.

  7. woman’s right? just to get female supporters? isoetimes, it’s better to keep mouth shuts when u hav nothing to say. i think she is bordering more towards feminist. She can propose all she want but she wont get anywhere.

  8. nur – Yes, I am aware of that but I guess our law cannot override the other law?

  10. When one criticizes someone else’s views, he/she should be able to come up with other options (so that it could be considered constructive criticism). If the critic fails to put forwards alternatives, then he is no better, for he has no basis upon which his criticism is made. So, my suggestion to Lilian (I presume I have to state it explicitly) is to give alternatives to each idea you criticize.
