Banana Dick

JOHOR BARU: All 999 million units of Amanah Saham Malaysia (ASM) shares allotted to the Chinese have been snapped up, said Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB). The allocation was part of the additional 3.33 billion units which went on sale on Monday. PNB president and chief executive officer Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said that as at 12.17pm yesterday, all the units allotted to the Chinese were bought while the Indians bought 53.5 million units, or 10.71% of the 499.5 million units set aside for them. The bumiputras bought 7.65 million units, he said in a statement.

This is the reason why I think people hate us. This is the reason why I think people call us "Jewish" and does not mind performing a Holocaust on us. They just want to strip us naked, let us die in the cold, hang our bodies on trees and let squirrel come and eat our nuts.

You just can't buy up all 999 million units of share in less than 3 days while the big big big big big big big big big big big big big big (wait ah, I haven finish) big big big big big big big big (almost there) big big big big big big big majority of the country bought 7.65 million units at the same time. If you hate us and think that we control the economy I understand. I never disagree that people should hate us, I never think that they are wrong to discriminate us. If people bully me, I will want to strip them naked too. But the point here is not how much we want to kill each other. It is how are we going to do that.

You see, Chinese people are brought up in a culture where we value hard work a lot. Because we like to eat rice very much, we have to grow a lot of rice. And we all know how hard it is to grow grain, spending a year's work only to harvest once. Our culture taught us to give maximum effort for minimal return and still be very appreciative about it. Do not be worried, I did not figure this out myself, ask any intellect, your professor or the Internet, they will tell you approximately the same thing. And that is just one of the many examples. If all my readers are high end intellect, I would have used something easier.

For example if you were to poised me a question saying "can you suggest an example in your culture that proves your determination and perseverance in doing things?" I will answer "the ancient Chinese government were brought down several times by eunuchs who worked with the enemy and ill advised the Emperor. This comes to show that even when people cut our penis, it doesn't mean we cannot screw them anymore. This is an example of great perseverance and determination."

As we all understand, I do not like to provoke people. As much as I enjoy standing out with my controversial opinions. I do not encourage any races to fight and kill each other in our country. Because ultimately, you can't. We would have bought all your shares before you can lift up your keris. And I totally agree that the keris is a gentle weapon. It is a weapon for the gentlemen. Not for war. Have you seen the chinese spear in Red Cliff (A Recent John Woo film)? It is freaking longer than a strip poll. They would have poke 13 holes on your body even before you come close enough to say hi.

I think we have fought long enough. It is time for us to take a break and learn from each other. Be appreciative of each other and cultivate true harmony. If someone can beat me up so fast I cannot even retaliate, I would stop retaliating. And ask them, how did you do it? Can you teach me? Please? (And do my sad "I have just lost my puppy" face)

Sun Tzu was a great strategist and general who wrote the world's first military strategy book ever called 'The Art of War". And it is definitely much more prestigious than "The Art of Deal" by Donald Trump. After hiring Sun Tzu, the then kingdom of Wu conquered and dominated the whole southern China and remain in power until his death. The book were preserved and kept secret by the ruling class for a long time. There is a part of our crazy history where we value books and scrolls. We see them as precious gems and whoever got hold of it, acquire those knowledge can be dangerous. Especially to the ruling class, and today, you read my blog for free, oh, how we evolved.

One of the famous Sun Tzu's saying was "To Win Without Fighting is the Best Skill" . He subsequently added "Just buy up all their shares."

Don't fight don't fight. I would like to talk more about Sun Tzu when I have time. Do you know that the famous 36 strategies were actually divided to be used in 6 different situations? That also means 6 strategies for each different situations. Getting confused? Here is one of the 6 tactics he wrote specially for desperate situation:

No.36: If all else fails, retreat

If it becomes obvious that your current course of action will lead to defeat then retreat and regroup. When your side is losing there are only three choices remaining: surrender, compromise, or escape. Surrender is complete defeat, compromise is half defeat, but escape is not defeat.

As long as you are not defeated, you still have a chance.

This is the most famous one of the 36th strategy, immortalized in the form of a Chinese idiom: "Of the Thirty-Six Strategies, fleeing is best."

Therefore, goodbye!

Blogging is a continuing process. Much liken to producing a drama series. If ratings are good, new seasons are ordered, continuing episodes are written. If ratings are bad, the producer will cut off the show. So keep on supporting it.
