Photohunt: Unique/ Funny Signs

Category: , , , By Aleckii

This is a sign I came accross in Auschwitz, Poland, at the etrance of the concentration camp of Auschwitz I, translated literally into: "work shall set you free/will free you".

No doubt, this is a paradox, since almost none of the people who saw and read this sign were ever freed.

    The mention of Auschwitz and concentration camp reminded me of Sophie's Choice, a favorite book.

    TIME TO DEFEND PETRONAS for the sake of our beloved nation.

    Things happen not without a reason or two!

    Petronas bashing is orchestrated! That was what they want everybody to think.

    The target is Tan Sri Hassan Marican, President CEO of Petroans.


    Immediately after Pak Lan took over from Dr. M as PM on 31st OCtober 2003, a small consulting company named Bina FIKIR was invited to make a presentation to Pak Lah to present their views of Malaysian Economic situation back then.

    Subsequent events lead to another soon they were meeting every other day, of course all these with the help from KJ, Pm son in law. There were so many proposals from Bina Fikir that even the Government senior officers just couldnʼt keep up.

    Meantwhile, a plan was hatched to tell the Malaysian that there is no more money in Treasury so all projects are halted including double-tracking, Singapore crooked bridge and many many more!

    But Pak Lah tells Malaysian that an action plan is in place as he called for election in March 2004.

    Mr. Clean won the election in 2004 by breaking records for UMNO as well as Barisan.

    Earlier newspaper report was focusing on Khazanah Nasional Bhd performance and after several collective comments on Khazanah, Pak Lah announced that the MD, Datuk Anwar Aji, of Khazanah is to be replaced by Azman Mokhtar on Jun 1, 2004, barely 2 months after election. Azman was the brain and MD of Bina Fikir.

    Datuk Anwar was given Chairman of Faber Group Bhd. It was planned so well that people hardly notieced.

    KJ was successful in planting his people at Khazanah Nasional Bhd and now have access to all the assests of Khazanah. Khazanah passive policy on its investment were changed almost overnight.

    They were allowed to use their assets as securities to raise monies for investment overseas. Invest the did into the billions of Ringgit thru certainl investment advisors which makes ton of advisory services.


    Petronas is by far the richest company and most profitable in Malaysia. Petronas has won several accolades as the best managed company too.

    Tan Sri Hassan Marican is a tough nut to crack. To replace Hassan is not easy tasks. So when the opportunity comes, KJ & CO took full advantage to bash Petronas.

    Using mass media which he controls, using many bloggers to plant hate mails into various local sites and even to the extent of spreading SMSes sent nationwide to boycott Petronas stations and products, he is seeing results.

    He further attack Petronas for not being transparent in the Annual Accounts, which is strange because Khazanah Nasional do not even publish its Annual Accounts. It is Petronas is being bashed.

    Tan Sri Hassan came out defending Petronas saying accouns are available, only certain people refuse to read it.

    Never before has Tan Sri Hassan have to come defend himself. Defend he did, he tried, but Hassan do not have the power KJ has.

    Silly allegations were thrown at Petronas all with evil intention to make people angry at Hassan for the fuel hike which was actually a Government decision.

    The Modus Operandi was similar to Khazanah Nasional, but Petronas seem more difficult. More attempts to unseat Hassan will be planned by these greedy people, and all they need is a wrong move by Hassan. So far he has done none of it.

    Once they win, they will replace Hassan with their own people and Petronas money (OUR MONEY) will be at their disposal!

    Some one must stop these culprits and donʼt say I did not forewarn you.
