SAKMONGKOL AK47 As promised, here is the second article on the contest between Azmin and Khalid. I will write in street style. True or not? For a person like Khalid Ibrahim to do what he can do as a business savvy person, political power must be won and consolidated. If PR loses Selangor, then Khalid or a person of Khalid’s calibre has no place to apply his skills.
Malaysia-Finance Blogspot Interesting article on China's move to liberalise (a little) the cross border trading between China exchanges and HK exchange. There are more reasons than meet the eye. My comments in RED. Alibaba, who? The decision last month by the Chinese e-commerce giant to list in New York presented Hong Kong with an existential crisis.

Philosophy Politics Economics The DAP welcomes the new appointment of Datuk Abdul Farid Alias as the new President and Chief Executive Officer of Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) to replace Datuk Abdul Wahid Omar who was tapped to be a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

We hope to see under Datuk Farid’s leadership that Maybank will not only continue to be a giant in the country but will become a leader in Asia Pacific. According to the latest rankings from The Banker of The Financial Times, Maybank, with a tier-1 capital of US$12.61 billion (RM40.89 billion), is ranked 15th among Asia-Pacific (excluding China and Japan) banks. The bank is ranked 95th in the world.
Negara kita sesungguhnya sedang berada dalam krisis yang amat genting sekali. Dalam semua bidang kita dalam krisis. Dalam bidang pentadbiran negara kita masih terbelenggu dengan isu rasuah yang semakin menjadi-jadi dan tidak nampak tanda-tanda ia akan terlerai. Laporan Ketua Audit Negara bagi 2013 masih menunjukkan betapa lemahnya kerajaan kita ditadbir oleh pemimpin-pemimpin lemah yang ada pada hari ini. Kita masih di dalam sebuah kerajaan yang rasuah dan salah tadbir yang amat serius. Inventory barangan dan kelengkapan yang tidak diselaras dengan betul kerana terlalu banyak barangan yang telah dibelanjakan masih berada dalam setor kerajaan sejak bertahun yang lalu yang sudah lusuh tidak digunakan dan ini semuanya pembaziran yang sangat mahal harganya.

Sesame + Soy, G Hotel's Pan Asian Chinese Cuisine restaurant offers dining experience like no other in Penang. As a start, it is already unusual to find two complimentary yet different dining ambiance in one space. As you walk into the restaurant, you will be greeted first by Soy, a modern Asian bistro of sort, which is the more casual of the two. My Food Fetish
