BERSIH 2.0 oppressed by government?

Whether you are interested in politic, you should be concerned about BERSIH. It's a movement to demand for cleaner election processes and procedures. The objectives are as following:

1. Clean the electoral roll, no more buy-election
2. Reform postal ballot, all must be allowed to vote by postal ballot if cannot physically present in Malaysia
3. Use of indelible ink, no more fraud vote
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period, allow candidates to convey message clearly and throughoutly
5. Free and fair access to media, no more Utusan's bias
6. Strengthen public institutions, no more Teoh Beng Hock
7. Stop corruption, no more RM1.8million facebook fan page.
8. Stop dirty politics, no more sodomy no more sex tape.

However, this peaceful rally has been marked as illegal by Ministry of Home Affairs and Polis Diraja Malaysia thereby violated the freedom of assembly as guaranteed by Malaysian constitution, because PDRM has openly declared that no permit will be given to BERSIH 2.0 even before the application is submitted.

The government is obviously adopting a double standards because no action is taken against UMNO youths whom gathered in front of PKR Penang office. Extremists who proclaime themselves as PATRIOT also threaten to burn down PKR headquarter if BERSIH 2.0 rally goes on. Silat guru, Omar Din aka Mahaguru also threatens to wage war against BERSIH activists. Many BERSIH supporters have been arrested for wearing the official t-shirt as PDRM claims it is illegal. There are many more extremists defaming the rally by calling it KOTOR or dirty in Malay, say that it is a demonstration to save Anwar Ibrahim from sodomy charge.

If you are planning to join the rally please be alert as I expect there might be people whom hired to create chaos hiding in BERSIH peaceful crowd. These people are paid to give BERSIH 2.0 a bad name so ban against the rally and any future peaceful demonstration can be justified.

Fortunately a security guard saw her and advised her "not to do anything stupid". However, she was not seem to be persuaded, the guard had no choice but to jump into the lake and saved her from the water. I wonder if she is a UTAR student?

Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia, how much does it cost actually?

How much does this Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia facebook page cost actually? Let's listen to what Preetham Venkky has to say. Preetham Venkky is the business head at KRDS India, one of the Facebook authorized app development firms in Asia. 
While anything is possible, spending US $590,000 on six Facebook apps doesn’t make much campaign sense. So for an app like Citrawana (one of the six) to costs close to US $100,000, this is impossible since the app is pretty straight to the point. The money paid is seriously unjustified. It should cost anywhere between $ 12,000 – $ 15,000 inclusive of two iPads being given away as prizes. These costs would include (to quote directly) – “creative works, concepts and ideas, design, flash programming and coding, testing and debugging, uploading and launching of application, system server development and maintenance, and development of database from the contest”.
Based on the minister’s statement, what’s important to note is that the cost does NOT include campaign management, monitoring, Facebook ads, or fan recruitment through Facebook and Google. In most cases, the costs can escalate quite rapidly if a key deliverable is fan count. If there’s a target to acquire one million US fans for the page (this could be a realistic expectation since the client is a Tourism client) where the CPC is US $1.10 (on average) then it might be a good deal. If I were to make a guess, I think it would make sense if $90,000 includes the development of six apps with the remaining money spent on media (buying ads) to propagate and rapidly increase engagement.
What’s shocked me is something different altogether. The agency hasn’t used the basic mechanics involved in Facebook fans acquisition. For instance, a user can play the game without ‘liking’ the page. There’s a micro-leaderboard but no global leaderboard. How would the user be motivated if he doesn’t know where he stands globally? And honestly, it’s extremely difficult to get 50,000 points which will only encourage the users to give up soon.

Also, the developer hasn’t used any ‘virality’ at all in the app. For instance it doesn’t prompt the user to share their score as an update, it doesn’t have an option to ‘challenge’ and invite your friends to join the game etc. There’s a lot that could’ve been done with the app, but it looks like the development agency has missed out on the core features to make the app go viral and hence increase fans and awareness.

Better World Books

Bought a used book from on 15 of May 2011 and received it today (about 2 weeks), exactly like what they have promised. The book that I received is in superbly good condition, almost like new. Moreover, a new one from MPH book store would cost me RM99 and I only paid for RM27 for this book (about $9) which is very cost efficient, at the same time environmental friendly. 

Nevertheless, it's hard to get newly published book here because they are hot item and people who own it are still keeping it for own reading.
