Stop Being Self-Pity

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. - Mandela.

1. The primary reason why Bidayuh has been sidelined and marginalized; because they are not educated. The number of graduated bidayuh is less than 15% out of the whole population.

2. 60% of Bidayuh are working as self supply farmer, 30% as construction worker and less than 10% are professional workers either in government sector or private sector. Thus, the household income for each bidayuh family is less than RM500 per month. Their per ca pita should be RM 5.00. This can label the Bidayuh as hardcore poor.

3. Why is this happen? Most of the Bidayuh teenagers quit school after form 5 and work at coffee shops, supermarket and construction site. At the age of 18, they married and have their own family. Those who are distinction could not pursue to college or university because their parent is poor.

4. How to get rid of this? We do not need political mathematic to figure out or solve the problem. I think parents should change their mindset towards the importance of education. Start planting rubber, black pepper. Do not planting oil palm because we cannot afford for heavy machineries.

5. Start saving now at ASB or ASSAR or ASN or AHB to prepare the children’s education in the future.

6. Youngsters should work during school holiday. Not loitering around and waiting for money to come. Save the money and prepare yourself to college or university.
7. Sacrifice more and never give-up to save a much as you can. You can eat white rice with salted fish compare to our forefathers who ate tapioca with tapioca buds. We are much better now as there is sugar, cooking oil and coffee.

8. Don’t spend on beer or liqueur if you are not afforded. Coffee and tea is much better from wine. Safe more money rather than drinking more beer and liqueur.

The Fake Picture of SUPP

No Chinese Face?

Picture taken from Borneo Post Press

SUPP is known as Chinese dominant party and this party has only few dayak members who were defected from opposition party. Like STAR (Dr. Jerrip Susil), William Tanyuh (Ex-SNAP), Ranum (unkwon) and Richard Riot. Please visit

I am wonder how SUPP works for the people as they are loosing support from the chinese in Sibu, Kuching, Padungan and Kota Sentosa. Supp have made fooled of the Dayak's support and take it as their own advantage to climb up to the highest level in political arena.

When Yong Khoon Seng was made as Bengoh MP few years back, Padawan road was terrible. Then came Mr. William Tanyuh, who said the government has no fund to develop Padawan because the government is bancrupt. The people of Bengoh still vote him as they believe in what Tanyuh said. And Now Padawan is still the same since I was toadler.

Now, Jerip is the MP for Bengoh. This is surely very terrible MP as people of Semban, Rejoi, Pain and Sait have lost their land, fruit trees, villages and precious memories for the new Bengoh Hidro dam. Jerip has not say anything either to defend the villagers rights or to help them to negotiate on the better compensation and resetlement for the affected community. Unless, if he is an opposition, he might say his idea to the people or the party, SUPP.
On the next coming state election, the Bidayuh will seek SUPP help to release their land to BN for plantation. What to do? SUPP is the olny party that defend the Bidayuh right all this while. The Bidayuh will never give any change to a better person or party to be their representative. They will keep recycle the old and incapable one and continue to live in the same way of life while other people are improving everyday.
Next election, please vote for SUPP and enjoy the BN- Chinese way of political game. Then Bidayuh will ever improve.

Loosing Side of the Tribe

JKK, DBNA Head, MP and Plantation Company Scandal.

I would like to wish all a Happy New Year 2011. Indeed, it was a great year of 2010 and we have gone through it very well.

I was shock by a notice at a small church on the land occupation for “plantation” which covered Kampung Tepoi (Tebedu) up to Kampung Semuti (Padawan). It will cover morev than 200 hectare of land and it surely affected the villagers lands. The agreement of land custody was sign by 4 village headmen, PBB information representative for N.16 a.k.a JKK for Kampung Semuti and an advocate and solicitor personnel that represent the plantation company. I was informed by the villagers that our Padawan DBNA leader was the lobbyist and the village headmen and JKK were given an amount of money to agree to the “plantation” agreement.

Our JKK has just bought his new Toyota 4WD hilux with the money given by the plantation company for persuading all 4 village headmen to sign the custody agreement. He works as a clerk but yet he made money from every “opportunity” he made. He is very cunning and many villages have lost a lot from what he has done. He works very close with DBNA Padawan head, secretary of politicians, counsels and penghulu’s.

We are yet to see another loosing part of the Bidayuh at Padawan area after Borneo Highland Resort which gave us no return or better pay job. The advantages is at the Green Height as the resort was build on the NCR land and therefore nobody could voice up their disagreement because the developer is backing up by politician and JKK.

The said Plantation project has brought worries to the villagers as they may lost their pepper, cocoa and rubber farm as well as matured forest for paddy planting. It will come to worst scenario that the villagers will lost their fruit orchards and there will be no more cold clear streams. I do not have any idea on the claim or any compensation as there are proxies (JKK and DBNA Padawan) and for sure there is misconduct and I am yet to see another big Pajero for the JKK head.

The villagers will have to work with the plantation company for RM 13.00 per day or less and end up to social problem as the plantation company will hire foreign worker to work in the estate.

We never oppose any development project by BN but it seems that there is no any development project at Padawan area and yet the people are loosing their land pieces by pieces. I believe that they will at a bad lost if their leaders are wise, not corrupt and honest to the people. There is no disagreement or opponent has been made towards this plantation project and I am totally 1000% sure that the villagers will regret in the future.
