CLOSE TO YOU….BUT CLOSED TO SOME?

I made an appeal (HERE) for readers to make donations to the widow of Basharuddin Ahmad who died whilst participating in the Bersih Rally on Saturday, 9 July.

Following are feedback I received:

Dear Zorro,

I was at Maybank today trying to bank in RM100 donation into account of Rosni Malan A/c 1640 5232 3091 but was unsuccessful because this account I was told is blocked.

First I tried the cash deposit machine and they rejected my two RM50 notes.

Then I approached the officer i/c who came over to help and it also failed. He then filled in the normal bank-in slip and asked me to queue at the next counter which I did and that too didn't work - confirmed account blocked!

By then I was already feeling very agitated and told this 2nd bank officer that there's no reason why this account is blocked because it belongs the wife of Saturday's Bersih hero who died walking for us under chemical laced water and tear-gas in the streets of KL for justice and for clean and fair election. This account number was splashed across blogs, making it possible for supporters to chip in whatever amount they can to help his family.

I realised he suddenly became interested,(his collegues too), then he enquired, "You kenal him yah?" I answered "No I don't, we are SATU BERSIH Malaysia, we tolong each other in times of need.". Then came the smile and he loosened up "Yah memang betul, itu 1Malaysia outa punya, tak boleh pakai!" I smiled back.

As I walked away with the two RM50 notes that were rejected, I heard "thank you, thank you, thank you"!


I turned back to acknowledge it, on Baharuddin Ahmad's behalf!

May ask her to open a Paypal account and it will be easier for people to donate, even those overseas. Link the Paypal to her favourite bank for cash out.

I hope it is not due to covert action by you-know-who. If it is, they are very low class.

I managed to deposit on the 12th through mayban2U though. A lot of Mkini readers want to donate but the ATMs will not accept. Is it a policy of Mayban not to accept any anon deposit without a paper/electronic trail.?

The date for GE 13 would depend on Najib's belief in practitioners of those ancient occult arts on feng-shui & geomancy. If so GE 13 would depend in part on these mystical considerations! (He has publicly professed to a liking for the number 11, many people think it’s a reference to the year 2011 – though it could also mean Operation Lallang 11!) . Some feng Shui Lo opined that Najib’s birthdate shows that after August 5, his luck will start to sour all the way through November. “Najib must be forewarned. From the 1st week of September to the 1st week of October, there is a great clash between the month’s astrology with that of the nation’s birthdate of 31st August 1957. When there is a clash, it indicates that great turmoil is in store or a massive change is at hand,” the Feng Shui master forecasted as reported by Malaysian Chronicle. So he has better call for GE sometime in July Bersih pre-empted him and presented him the fall out that he risksn if he makes the call this month! If he were to think in terms of next year of the Dragon it may not be particularly auspicious for the Snake (born in 1953) like him in a struggle – Malaysia’s feng shui dragon back bone is said to be from Banjaran Titiwangsa (Mountain Ranges), which is from the North, tapering into Selangor State, controlled by Pakatan Rakyat (that stands now as if it were a dragon!). Traditionally a Snake is Ok with dragon as long as they know each other’s habits and motivations and are at peace but if they fight as in an election, their conflicting styles are such that, according to traditional beliefs, the Snake (more subtle, security conscious, indirect, sneaking from behind) will have to yield to the Dragon whose style is firm, almost egotistical, frontal, brave and open in attack.
