“Masa Sekarang Menunggu Mu” – Part 3 (Tourism Malaysia – Overseas Postings)

Yg Bhg Datuk Seri Mirza Mohamad Taiyab, the Director General of Tourism Malaysia (TM). He is responsible for most, if not all, of the overseas posting of officers. He was previously charged for corruptions and he was acquitted. It was unusual for AG Chambers not to file an appeal.

Overseas Posting of TM Officers

The usual practice for overseas posting for all government servants is for a maximum period of 3 – 4 years at most. Wisma Putra practices this too. However, this practice is not applicable to the little napoleons in Tourism Malaysia (TM).

To digress a little, TM is a fiefdom to the  little napoleons. They are the laws to themselves.   For the past few years until now TM has been operating in deficit with impunity.  This in unheard of. It is business as usual for them. They are the laws to themselves.

These  little napoleons are so good with creative accounting that even the Auditor-General Department had been fooled time and time again.  As far as they are concerned Rules or Regulations are for decoration purposes only. As we can see the little napoleons wearing BN uniforms and openly campaigning for BN during the last GE when they knew or ought to have known that they are prohibited from taking part in political activities, HERE.

There was a case where one of the little napoleon had signed a contract with a non-existent “company” with impunity and yet he was subsequently rewarded with promotion to JUSA C.  Soon after he was promoted to be a Deputy Director General!  This matter will be discussed (if necessary yours truly will name him) with other questionable transactions in the next posting (Part – 3).

“Masa Sekarang Menunggu Mu” – Part – 2 (Tourism Malaysia)

Updates:  Please read the warnings “Pegawai Kerajaan era Najib tahu salah mereka, sendiri buat sendiri tanggunglah” given by Yg Bhg Datuk A  Kadir Jasin.

Tourism Malaysia (TM) is a statutory body under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture which has been operating on deficit until this day. Why is the Auditor-General not any taking actions? May be certain high ranking officers are experts in creative accountings.   At the material time its deficit was more than RM250 millions! Continue reading

“Masa Sekarang Menunggu Mu” – Part 1 (TM & GLCs)

The self proclaimed re-branding guru, Yg Bhg Datuk Shazalli Ramly was briefing important people in Telekom Hq. He should be gainfully employed in an advertising company like MC Saatchi Sdn Bhd and not Telekom Malaysia.

Updates 22-5-2018 @ 3pm: Telekom profits for the 1st Quarters dropped by 32%. Was it due to the CEO Shazalli playing too much politics or spending too much time preparing the “HEBATKAN NEGARAKU” Campaign materials, HERE.

Updates:  Please read the warnings “Pegawai Kerajaan era Najib tahu salah mereka, sendiri buat sendiri tanggunglah” given by Yg Bhg Datuk A  Kadir Jasin.

According to reliable sources, Yg Bhg Datuk Shazalli Ramly (Shazalli), who is the incumbent CEO of Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM). had been extremely busy for the past few months.  Instead of running TM, which pays him a monthly salary of about RM300,000.00 exclusive of perks, allowances and other director fees, he was busy aspiring to be a “political campaign manager” at the same time.

Wheeling & Dealing in MCMC? Part 3 – MoF said “NO” to direct award of contract but …

Yg Bhg Dato' Mohamed Sharil Mohamed Tarmizi, the Chairman of MCMC

The well dressed and highly respected Chairman of MCMC, Yg Bhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Bin Mohamed Tarmizi.

 

A week has elapsed and the MCMC Chairman, Yg Bhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Mohamed Tarmizi, is still exhibiting his elegant silence on the issue of MCMC awarding the Programe Marketing office (PMO) to Orenda Kuantum Digital Sdn Bhd (Orenda Kuantum Digital) by way of direct award.  Continue reading

TM UniFi “D-Link router only can do” – another TM monopolistic policy that raises suspicion!

I just found out to my disgust (after talking to a TM UniFi techie) that I cannot use any other router for the TM UniFi high-speed broadband service other than the D-Link router that is supplied in the package I signed up for. This is because of a “special configuration” dictate. And this is not acceptable!

As it is, Telekom Malaysia is already a monopoly and suspicion is already causing my brain to work overtime. And now that I have also been stung with this latest D-Link only router policy where I either have to “take it or leave it” my head is now running riot with even more suspicions with this company!

First of all, I would not have decided to junk the D-Link router supplied if everything was hunky-dory. This brand really sucks. I have had so much ‘signal issue’ with this D-Link router it’s not funny and I am beginning to wonder whether TM did it’s due diligence by properly testing it for UniFi high-speed use. Also, whoever at TM UniFi finally made the decision to exclusively assign this brand for its premium broadband service should have his/her head examined and taken to task, for the unit is an utter lemon! (As the British are known to call something that is unusually substandard and useless.) Continue reading
