MY FRIDAY GUEST: FRANKIE D’CRUZ

A planned meeting with Malaysiakini’s Content Editor Lynn D’Cruz took place mid afternoon whereas an unplanned meet with Malay Mail’s Editor at Large Frankie D’Cruz and Errold D’Cruz took place an hour before the close of the day. Earlier I had posted on my Facebook, Frankie’s piece on Poor, Rich Petty Trader. Blogger Penny Chan (Gobloking….who used to blog from Madagascar) sent in a terse, telling comment: Editor will be canned tomorrow. It's incredible to read msm being objective.

That’s why MM is my preferred read and more reason why I am putting Frankie’s piece as my Guest:

Read POOR, RICH PETTY TRADER

Multiple award-winning journalist Frankie D’Cruz is Editor-At-Large of The Malay Mail. He can be reached at frankie@mmail.com.my

*****

ON BEING PETTY

The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.-Anton Chekhov

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things. - George Carlin

The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him. - Xun Zi

This petty trader is like a loose mongrel,straying the filthy streets looking for crumbs of leftovers.Until he was adopted by Umnoputras and became a lappie.

For being an obedient dog,he was splashed with AP's,being the understanding,he must bend over at the snap of a finger.That is the reason of his regular visits to the vetenarian.Being a pariah dog.

He failed the first test in public relations and perception. How could he convince people as representative of petty traders using super sports cars? He has no locus standi being an absentee so-called small trader with a licence in Jln TAR.

Put it this way, no one should doubt his petty trader status or claim. He still is, petty in heart, mind and soul but never a trader.
If anyone disagrees, ask some kind soul in income tax department how much taxes he contributes to the national treasury. AP is not a petty trader's business, so, not taxable.

It is painfully obvious he is but an UMNO lapdog, as much as that UMI is the UMNO prostitute.

Take away that fake persona, he is just another crooked coward

Petty traders"? Bulls! These bastards are "fuck joints" operators and the owners are qualified UMNO pimps!!!
All these low beings are just interested, how best to grease their assholes and offering them to Mongol C4 and Kissmyarsemuddin. Shameless SOBs!

Anon 2.25 pm - aren't muslims exempt from declaring income and from paying taxes if they pay zakat?

Comes as a major shock to read a bold, outspoken editorial in any BN-owned paper. Goes to show how accustomed we have grown to shameless hacks like Joceline Tan, Wong Chun Wai, and their ilk. And punchily written too - well done, Frankie D'Cruz! :-)

Malaysians, Please support Ambiga, team Bersih,sign petition , thank you !

Anonymous said...

hahahaha what i see here are a bunch of cock talkers. If you bunch of empty tin cans are really serious about democracy, Bersih, anti corruption and all that crap ... please fucking take action. Dont sit at home typing behind some keyboard in your pyjamas. Go down to Ambiga's house and lend her support or form a protective ring around her property. Go down to the warzone and face UMNO.

You people are like Zorro ... nothing but talk and more talk.

My dear Zorro,
A truth told in not so many words--the message is clear for those who can read.
Mob rule has become the order of the day. The DIG and HM have been made into double decked-super "turkey" burgers.
They mob has taken over the Mafia of 30 years. They feel the added insult to injury by eating "E-coli" infected burgers.
They too feel they have over fed their mob and it was hurting them bad. It has opened a new can of sleek high speed worms in the bargain.

with regards.

死人死不瞑目,活人走投无路

有没有想过,为什么边加兰人民必须面对这一切? 因为这些年来,我们一直在姑息霸权政治,逆来顺受,再继续的安静下去,我们会变成助纣为虐。

你敢保证下一个,不会发生在你自己的村子吗? 像现在的他们已经到了,死人死不瞑目(祖坟被挖)活人走投无路(活人被赶,生计受阻,环境即将遭受石化工业破坏)!!!

Whats the point of calling UMNO all sorts of names here? Ambiga is fighting for free and fair elections, and now she is being singled out. If you people really believe in her course and want free and fair elections, dont just hide behind your computers. Go down to Ambiga's house and show UMNO your united stand. Yes, face up to UMNO and support Ambiga.

Dont be a pondan and hide behind your laptops dishing out petty insults at UMNO.
