Mencari Embun Hutan Simpan Di Royal Belum

Saya dalam persiapan untuk menyenaraikan diri saya sebagai antara beribu orang yang pernah memasuki Royal Belum, Grik, Perak.

Saya ingin melihat dan menyaksikan kebesaran Allah dalam sejuknya hutan simpan itu. Ketenangan tasiknya, Kejernihan sungainya. Ketuaan alamnya. Ketinggian puncak pokoknya. Kekerdilan serangganya. Keheningan sekitarnya. Agar dengan itu saya mengerti akan siapa sangatlah diri saya, seorang hamba.

Jika hujan turun saya ingin duduk di luar khemah, merasai kesejukannya. Di waktu subuh sambil berwudhu, saya ingin menyapu kelopak mata dengan embun di dedaunan.

Saya ingin mendengar irama riang ria serangga dan unggas di hutan itu sebagai ganti kepada petikan gitar dan paluan drum yang menjadi halwa telinga kala di kota.

Bila siang, saya ingin mengintai matahari di sebalik daunan pokok hutan yang tinggi. Bila malam saya ingin merenung rembulan dan duduk depan unggun api, sambil masak air (macam cerita koboi lah tu, konon).

Saya ingin berbual dengan pokok yang beratus tahun hidup lebih dulu dari saya dan saya ingin bertanyakan perasaan mereka melihat negara ini dilahir dan dibesarkan.

Oh iya. saya juga ingin kenduri sardin sebagai menu utama selama di hutan. Nantilah apabila pulang saya ceritakan perjalanan 4 hari ini (tak lama mana pun). Terlebih dahulu saya bermohon doa agar kamera tidak jatuh ke air agar dapat saya merakamkan gambar-gambar seperti ini …

saya mencari gambar Royal Belum untuk ‘dipinjam’ dan berjumpa dengan blog Glenda Larke seorang penulis, pengembara dari Australia yang menetap di Malaysia. so I borrowed her photo..

    A non-malay even though he is more capable and more qualified but cannot:

    Be – the prime minister of the country
    Be – the deputy PM of the country
    Be – the head of any branch of the armed forces in the country
    Be – the head of department in a ministry
    Be – the head prefect of a national school
    Be – the head of state of the states with no rulers
    Be – the IGP of the country
    Be – nominated as the best of the best in the school
    Be – the secretary-general or deputy secretary-general of a ministry

    What is worse is that the PM goes around telling people, repeating a crazy lie, by saying that – “We do not practice racial discrimination in our country”.

    Did the MCA and MIC leaders agree to this in1957?

    Did the people in Sabah and Sarawak also agree to this in 1963?

    I think malays will keeping to give rubbish answer!

    Who wants to stay home and serve here where meritocracy gives way to racial preference? I am a two-time graduate in University Malaya (masters and bachelors degree) and I used to hope that my children could enter a local university someday.

    But with sliding university ranking and invisible barriers to keep non-malay students away, I have changed my mind. If I have the opportunity and money avails itself, I will send my children to overseas universities and ask them to emigrate there. We can rot and die here, but not the children.

    This brain drain is not a problem to Umno at all. In fact, Umno is happy to see more and more of our talents leaving. Their power base will then be more secure.

    All this started with Dr Mahathir. He believed that a half competent malay was better than a fully competent non-malay to serve the nation. This is clearly reflected in the progressive exclusion of non-malays from teaching profession academia, public service and other areas in the public sector as well GLCs since the early 1980s.

    During Dr Mahathir’s ethnic cleansing of the Malaysia public service, thousands of qualified non-malays left the country for Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Such departure was view positively by Dr Mahathir – it meant that there were more positions available for malays. That short-term thinking has had dire consequences.

    During the regional economic boom of 1990s, Malaysia prospered. There was plenty of money. Incompetence and corruption did not matter – a failure could always be rectified through bailout; high costs (e.g. Proton) could always be neutralised through subsidies (for export) or higher prices (for local consumption).

    The scenario today is different. Competition is stiff. Newcomers such as Vietnam are breathing down our neck. Giants (India and China) have awakened and are marching unimpeded.

    Malaysia needs to exploit all its resources to meet the global challenge. Ignoring 40% of its most valuable resource (e.g. human capital – Indians, Chinese and East Malaysians) is no way to meet the challenge.

    Badawi needs to put in place a policy for exploiting the most valuable resource Malaysia has – its people, including the Indians, Chinese and others. Otherwise, this resource will move away to the competitors of Malaysia.

    If deployed properly, the talents will be a source of competitive advantage. If not deployed appropriately, the talents will become a source of relative competitive disadvantage for Malaysia when they end up in other countries.

    Majority of the non-malays work in multinational companies. With the rate our government and GLCs pissing off these MNCs! These MNCs are moving out of Malaysia.

    Get real! Why majority of the non-malays don’t work inside GLCs? What do you think they would do when these MNCs are gone? Work in GLCs or emigrate outside Malaysia?

    Some of my friends are always skeptical of Singapore.

    Of course, Singapore intention is to protect their own interests (isn’t what a government is for) – talented people are very mobile nowadays. Singapore also encounters brain drain to the West (US, EU, Australia), so they need new talents to come in.

    They prefer Malaysians, as there are cultural ties – easy to adapt to the environment (multiracialism, language, weather, etc), like their Mr Everest climbers.

    But they also welcome white mans, Thais, Indians, and Hong Kong Chinese too etc. Just take a MRT ride or go to the housing estate – you see many foreigners (not the illegal immigrant type).

    We have our own national interests and should protect it, but we have more outflow of talent than inflow. Just see how we treat the economist who had a different method of calculating the bumi ratio of the economy – how to attract talent?

    Some of my Malaysian friends have been offered citizenship and a few have accepted……….so those talents not going back to Malaysia.

    Singapore is following US policy, US still attracted the best brains from all over the world regardless of color, check out the composition of employment in term of nationality in Silicon Valley and Nasa, you will know why it succeed, America is land of immigrants.

    Umno policy is that if Umno cannot have it no other Malaysian should have it. Umno prefers a Mat Salleh (because that is a temporary situation) to have it rather than any other non-Umno Malaysian to have it.

    I have been advising my relatives and friends for a long time since years ago – to encourage their children to apply for a Singapore scholarship to attend a university in Singapore even it that means she/he has to serve Singapore for 10 years.

    At least, that will provide him for the future. So what is 10 years! He is free to utilise his talent as he pleases after that 10 years. I have 3 nephews who got Singapore scholarships, then served the Singapore government and are now working and being successful in Hong Kong and America.

    They are heads of multinational companies. They will never be allowed to succeed in Malaysia because there is identification of race with jobs. All jobs even slightly connected with the Umno government must have malay employees. That is the new NEP.

    Dear Malaysians, I don’t understand why the brains should not leave this country. The malays are definitely feel threaten by these brains, so we rather let them leave the country.

    Malaysia pays peanuts and racially biased! That is why! Simple as that! Go to England, Australia and even the US hospitals and take a count of how many Malaysian born doctors are there, good doctors, man!

    I traveled the world over and have lived in UK, Australia and the US. I have talked and met to these doctors. They not being unpatriotic, it is the Malaysia that is not doing the right thing!

    I think Singapore should attack Malaysia and expand its territory to southern Johor. All the Indians and Chinese should migrate to southern Johor, and together with Singapore, forms a new Singapore.

    Ex-Malaysians in exiles like myself will support this feasible plan. I am sure millions of overseas and mainland Chinese and Indians are excited about my suggestion.

    When all the Muslim brothers from Uganda, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nigeria, Indonesia etc etc, become bumis and enjoy the handout from NEP, there will be the day when the malays realize that they are being marginalize by its own Umno policy.

    You can start counting the increasing numbers of Mamak in politics!

    In Malaysia, we Malaysian Chinese just need to compete with fellow Malaysians only (where mostly lazy people). Easy to become rich – as we are governed by stupid and lazy people.

    We can easily own several houses, luxury condos, own a bungalow at good location, as own and drive luxury cars in Malaysia.

    In Singapore, not so easy, we have to compete with Singapore Chinese, Hong Kong Chinese, China Chinese and Taiwan Chinese. Not easy to become rich as Singapore government too smart.

    Malaysia will continue to lose its talents not only to Singapore, and other countries but the Umno malays don’t give a damn. Their thinking is so long as the malays benefit, the country can go to the pigs and dogs.

    They hold the entrenched view that it is better for Malaysia to be another Zimbabwe or Nepal if being in the ranks of Singapore and Japan means malays losing out to the others.

    Lim Keng Yaik said that Singapore was a small country, so it was easily to govern. In fact, it is not so. Because of its size, it lacks most of the factors of production that we learn in economics.

    Land is scarce, and its domestic market is small. However, it recognises that what it has is its labours. No wonder that it is wooing all the brains from Malaysia, since Malaysia does not appreciate them.

    Instead, Malaysia seems to be attracting the top criminals as shown by the sharp increase in crime rate. Malaysia with its oil, tin, rubber, oil palm etc, will forever not be able to beat a small country like Singapore because of its incompetent leaders and their cronies who are only interested in their own pockets.

    Before the NEP, UM was one of the top universities in the world. After the NEP, it has become trash because it rejects the best minds. The only pro of NEP is if you are in Umno or a friend of theirs.

    All the Singaporeans I have met were very nice to me and treat me like one of theirs. We are the same people and I am always in favour of reunification with Singapore.

    If only the malays are a bit smarter, then BN won’t win. The problem is malays are too damn stupid that they keep voting for BN. I don’t know what poison BN gave to make them in this state.

    salam, sedara rosman,
    Saya baru pg hutan belum (7,8,9 march). alhamdulliah…fanstatik…satu group 13 org. Travel ke dlam hutan sejauh 80 kilometer via river (1 jam perjalanan ngan speed boat…..) kita org masuk kat pos yang terakhir sekali (lupa nama pos aper..sori..) kita org camping kat dalam hut, bukan atas tanah,… selamat ..tak becak, tak masuk pacat..
    Amalam camping macam biasa jer, camp, sleeping bag, torch lite, kasut getah,extra socks, kalau perlu, insect repeller(untuk sapu, bila masuk utan), ubat nyamuk, Pakaian tak payah bawa banyak, Budak boat tu adviced pakai jer the same baju untuk aktiviti hutan, tak payah pakai baju baru setiap kali masuk hutan, just baju bersih untuk solat n tidor.Makanan kalu dah termasuk dlm package tak payah bawa apa dah. Bawa begpack kecil untuk bawa minuman masa explore dlm hutan nanti. Camera jgn lupa bawa, make sure ada extra bateri. Kalau ada aktiviti ‘nite explorer’ bawa baju hujan ‘in case’…Jika nak melawat orang asli, bawa la buah tangan sikit kat dia org…titbits ke, biskut ke, bg kat kanak2 mereka, bawa la sorang sikit (Sedih tgk kanak2 dia org). Experience yang tak boleh dilupakan…kami di’lepaskan ke dlam sungai ..terapong mengikut arus…ada yang menjerit..ada yang menangis…anyway semua org pakai life jacket hehehe….. Anyway it was a great experience…hijau..hijau….hijau everywhere is hijau… Tidak dapat digambarkan dgn perkataan. Nasib baik tak jumpa Maybank atau Fumakila….tapi jadi tetamu pacat…..
    Apapun..semoga enjoy ur trip…. nawaitu ke elok….(sori pic tak siap kumpul lagi….)

  26. Restoration follows a sample much like that observed after a single episode of profuse sweating (2). It seems potential, due to this fact, that restoration, or restoration, from the cytologic adjustments produced by a single episode of sweating is an inherent property of the eccrine sweat gland and is independent of the following expertise of the sweat gland, i.e. additional sweating. This procedure, however, can immediate profuse perspiration in different beforehand unaffected components of the physique.

  27. This really is a very good internet site. I like it. I’d been curious about if anyone have heard of Punch TV Studios? Furthermore this is an incredible corporation making new possibilities in the entertainment business. They have just recently announced that they’re going to be financing films to as much as one hundred thousands us dollars. I was contemplating that when they did that, they are likely to require a lot music and sound effects for their films. I think the people here may possibly seek to test it out. http://bit.ly/24ya6Zp #punchtv
