Actually, I want to put a different title on my post. Title that goes something like, “The dummies guide to ampu bodek” or “The idiots guide to por lam pah.” But I must think of SEO as well. If you do not know what is SEO, never mind, it is not important. I picked these quotes in Italics from Malaysiakini where Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon suggested that Pak Lah should be given the title Bapa Demokrasi.

So, we know that all the previous Prime Ministers of Malaysia were given titles like “Bapa Kemerdekaan” which means Father of Independence or something like that to reflect the achievements they made during their tenure as Prime Ministers. To refresh our memories of the previous PMs, here is the list I stole from the net :

Tunku Abdul Rahman – Bapa Kemerdekaan : Membebaskan Malaya dari cengkaman penjajah.

Tun Abdul Razak – Bapa Pembangunan : Mengendalikan ketaksamaan ekonomi dan sosial.

Tun Hussein Onn – Bapa Perpaduan : Berjuang untuk mencapai perpaduan kaum

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad – Bapa Pemodenan : Menjadikan Malaysia sebuah negara moden dan makmur.

Now, I do not want to be disrespectful to our senior and elderly Prime Minister. So, I won’t go into any funny remarks because he is still our Prime Minister and he still deserves to be praised, somewhat…I think………… errr…no ah? 😛

But for a person like Gerakan Chief Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon to gush over him just after all these incidents, it is like telling us Gerakan Chief Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon is biggest ampu bodek of all. (I know this statement is like saying, The sky is blue) I think Malaysia Book of Guinness Record must give our ex-Penang Chief Minister the title and let’s have a huge celebration for him. Everyone shower him with two eggs.

Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon said, “He can be rightly called the ‘Father of Democracy’ for Malaysia,”

Tan Sri ah…I am but a lowly housewife but I think you are the most por lam pah man on earth. How could you say this when :

1) Pak Lah’s failure to settle the Ahmad Ismail issue at its early stage has caused the UMNO members to tear and step on your photo. If you don’t feel insulted, I don’t know what are you. You got back bone, Cantonese call ‘guat hei’ or not? On your behalf, I feel disgusted. Each time I drive past the mosque opposite Chung Ling (your alma mater), I will imaginary spit on Ahmad Ismail HUGE photo there on your behalf. Say thank you, please.

2) RPK, Teresa Kok and Tan Hoon Cheng were sent to ISA when Pak Lah was the PM and you still think he practised democracy? Please lah, Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon, go find a dictionary and see the meaning of democracy. Democracy does not put innocent people into ISA detention without trial. Aiyor, buat malu orang Penang lah. Lembik-lembik flip-flop is not democracy. It is inefficiency, incompetency, lai si, si si, khi si, geek si, deficiency, and many other si except demokrasi! Ish!

3) Allowing the MCMC to block Malaysians from accessing Malaysia-Today is call democracy? I am so relieved that you are no longer a CM or minister. Otherwise, I wonder what kind of policies you will formulate in the name of your so-called democracy?

4) Allowing and throwing all kind of insults to the Hindraf members who visited him during the Raya Open house and eventually, getting the police to question them is call democracy? Democracy is tolerating and listening to them and their grouses. Not allow the lower rank ministers and other people to hurl abuses and then, claim Hindraf ‘menghina Islam’. Doh….

And Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon further said, “In Najib, we have an intellectual, experienced and dynamic leader to build on the foundation Pak Lah has laid,” Yeah…right…..

So, ladies and gentlemen, if you have problems ampu-ing your bosses, go find Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon for a lesson on ampu bodeking. He got a Doctorate in Ampubodeklogy.

Lastly, this is what Malaysiakini BM version said.

“Kita mesti bergerak ke setiap negeri dan bahagian. Kita mesti menemui sebanyak mungkin rakyat Malaysia. Kita mesti bergerak dan memberikan motivasi kepada diri kita sendiri. Lagi pun, parti kita dinamakan Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia atau Parti Pergerakan Rakyat Malaysia. Nama itu mecerminkan parti ini sendiri,” tambah Koh.

And my reply – Nak menemui rakyat Malaysia? Saya rakyat Malaysia jugak tapi sori lah, brader, tak minat tengok muka hang. Gerak, gerak, gerak ke tepi sikit. “Siam chit pi”. (Hokkien : move aside)
