HE MESSED UP THIS FAMILY, BIG TIME.

I ended my post on 30 July thus:

NEXT: Datuk Mahmood Ambak's family was a prestigious family, even when the PM married into the family, UNTIL......

YES SIREE, until this character slipped into the mainstream of the Ambak family. Datuk Mahmood Ambak was the Chairman of the FAS (Football Association of Selangor) Disciplinary Committee and I was his secretary. This Malay Gentleman taught this then young teacher a treasury of things and values worth treasuring. I will not go into detail, suffice to say that when I read Kam Raslan's Confessions of an Old Boy, certain vignettes of Dato Hamid's colorful life kind of merged, intertwined and dovetailed so snuggly with Datuk Mahmood's. He was one of the earliest, if not THE earliest Malay entrepreneur. I even taught one of his sons. As I work on this keyboard, I can get the whiff of his pipe tobacco.....a mixture of Old English and Captain Black (if memory holds good). I recalled many meetings in his house, many evenings over BL/H2O, and Sundays hopping from PJ Sun Wah to a few other designated must-go venues. This was the dad of the late Datin Seri Endon who wedded our current PM. This family stuck by Pak Lah in his troubled times, thru thick and thin. Everything looked great when Pak Lah was accepted back into mainstream politics. His daughter Nori married a young Oxonian buck. Then Pak Lah was trust into the main stage and this is when the young upstart began to buck like an unbroken mustang. He was allowed free rein to roam the corridors of power. Without breaking a sweat, he turned millionaire and he spat off the bit, because he was already the numero uno. He seems to be saying to Pak Lah......"you just relax, snooze on and let me and my boys take care of things....or better still, take a break, go abroad; no worry we are in control." Didn't he chase off some US of A lady who was his dad-in-laws guest. I believe the word is kurang ajar....the worst insult ever amongst my Malay friends. Like literally, going into your in-laws house and telling the guest of honor: &%$@off! He was daring, he had the jobless cup chais gang behind him and now he is attacking us bloggers and branded us as monkeys (pic above says all....you agree?) and this morning he tells former DPM, "you are a traitor to the Malays." Coming soon, everyone who opposes him (perchance even his father-in-law) will be labeled treasonous. Such blatant audacity! Boy, are you listening....this is what grandma Zorro wants to know..................

Good one, although I would have suggest using your famous Mexican Chamber on him with no break nor intervals!

Thanks for sharing your insight and fond memories on Datuk Mahmood Embak.

It is the people of Malaysia's misfortune to have such an ambitious guy marry into the family of our PM. The worst part is that the PM is so weak that he allows himself to be manipulated by the son in law. I cant imagine how the country will be should this fart really get to be our PM.

No, it was 2 extra cups of stupid and he switched to the brand MORON.

ewoon said...

Kurang ajar and stupid. Don't they remind you of the mat ...pits? But this sil with his added overdose of loud-mouth IS the pits!

shanghaistephen said...

Maybe when and IF FIL wakes up from his slumber... he'll smack that young up-start !

khairy couldn't have come so far without a little bit of help. a leg up, somebody said? whether his finances were taken care of by kali and gang at ecm-libra or they came from some other, higher sources, we don't know yet. but he's now jobless. this is what happens when somebody does not need to work for his living. he takes everything and everyone for granted.

'I Think he had a 2nd helping....' Zorro, Audra said this on her first visit to your blog!
Me? I think I shall spare the space, for its really great that you are able to share those early 'pre-monkey days'??

zorro said...

Allied....very perceptive of Audra. Tony, those pre-primate days were what history were made of.Have a good weekend both of you....Audra...he is yours Monday, Tues. Thurs. Saturday and Sunday. Fair?

msiaman said...

Hi Zorro,

Is it Embak or Ambak? There is a family company called Syarikat Mahmood Ambak and Sons (SMAS)?

Cheers.

umno youth offered khairy jamaluddin the deputy chief's post on a silver, nay, golden platter. why? because he is the party leader's son-in-law. for no other reason.
how could someone like him who has done nothing for the country -- NOTHING - except to have married into "connection", be deemed fit to be a leader?
umno youth paved the way for Khairy. How disappointing is that?
How dangerous is that?
A tragedy, I tell ya.

zorro said...

Msiaman...its AMBAK. Sincere apologies all round. Pure carelessness on my part. Tks for the alert.

Eva, some people are shameless. Just like Zam acepting an award that he had no right to. Was Keris Hisham forced to nominate him? It was learnt that he publicly told the PM not to object to his nomination of the monkey-god Khairy. The chicanery in the Corridors of Power. The gods are cringing in shame.

Asuk said...

He is playing to the gallery and only those dummies in Umno Youth are falling for him. I wonder why he's having this paranoid fear about bloggers. Khairy,why get so jittery if you are a man of substance and have nothing to hide?

zorro said...

Asuk, they will do anything....like a drawning man clutching at any straw....Norza swore to wipe out all blogs before GE, and I just came back from Dang Wangi where Mrs Raja Petra (Marina) was questioned by the police....for close to 2 hours. If they cant get you for OSA, ISA, they will try throwing the terrorism card. Thanks for dropping by.
