Finally a JP leader has spelled out the remorse, the regret and the horror done by previous JP army generals. Point by point, the understanding of their unreasonable request, first of all to their very people, the JP people, to suicide in an almost always failed mission. On top of that, they created such a shame to their country and people, by ordering massacre and general misdoings to their captives and then, tried to cover it up and hid the facts, subduing testimonies from being told. How sad.

It definitely takes a whole huge courage to admit by the present JP people, a thing NOT of their doing, nor of their choice. Yet, a fact that history has recorded. BRAVO to PM Abe for spelling it out and acknowledging that no amount of development support rendered to captured nations will TRULY COMPENSATE those wrongs, but it sure is a comfort to know that it comes from the hearts. It is also a good start to acknowledge the fact that many Chinese people had risked their lives to hide lost and orphaned JP children from unruly Chinese mobs in times of chaos and hatred, bestowed upon them by the doings of the horror armies. As said, in every war, there are always some bad generals and troops. It is more like if those were the majority. Just as in every nation, there are good and bad people. It is simply, more good or more bad ! 

Yes, so true that with that experience, democracy and freedom should be reinforced to the JP people so that such wrongs will not be repeated, if ever possible.

PM Abe is trying to be true by noting it is important to pass down the history to a nation that is now more than of 80% post-war years, without which, it will be very hard for them to learn of the wrongs and to prevent from repeating it.

If every leader will be truthful to their heart and nation, every nation has a lot to learn from history – especially of WW-II. China, for one has so, so much to learn, having throw away their thousands years’ of trials-n-errors in social skills. They now admires the beauty of such social skills as kept by JP and many others Chinese settlers around the world. How sad. If JP will take that lesson from China, JP should know well that throwing away history will be like choking oneself in the long term. China learns it the hard way.

 I am not sure about others, but sure hope this expression of remorse and acknowledgment, will be the once n for all seemingly endless call for JP apology.  WAR (to subdue others) IS NEVER WON nor RIGHT IN ANY SENSE. Let this be taken as the true apology from JP.  Repeating an apology or remorse does not in any speak louder than action, if not meant from the heart. 


14-Aug…….. n the world n JP in the 70th year after WW-II

No wonder JP is still bombardment from direct neighbouring countries n far away war veterans. Already 70 years have passed n still the leader of JP is still ignoring HISTORY. So much for a nation who insists that gaijins ‘never admits their wrongs’.  They are so themselves n it is reflected in their thought of others !

The majority of the nations are tired of mentioning n asking, may be expecting the heartfelt apology. Wonder if the JP government is not tired of this lingering evilness of their wrongs ?

In a war, no side is truljy a winner – for the defensive wars Chinese, Koreans, generally Asians had put in, their warriors DIED in thousands too. Just as the common JP who had been forced into armies, in the name of honour – though now, largely known for its wrong purposes. WOE to those generals who had dealt evilly with their subjects at conquered land n BRAVO to those who had dealt with them fairly.  If we were to be honest with ourselves, we learn a lot from history n notes of goods n bads DONE by both sides, though the proportion would be heavy on one side.  Sorry for those who were good among the bads !!  Bless their souls for their courage.

PM Abe will have to show the world n JP people how trueful he is in all the near monopoly of JP parliament, as he tries to push through this UNPOPULAR constituency change.

6-August – World’s first atomic bomb, dropped over Hiroshima

6-August 1945 – World’s first atomic bomb, dropped over Hiroshima, to bring to end WW-II after 2 WARNINGs sent. I imagine, these were not conveyed to the JP public then. No wonder most still think that JP is a ‘victim’. In a way, yes, but to their own army’s General, the 1st class war criminals. The world is the witness to this.

How pathetic to think of the restarting of nuclear power plant in JP !!   Wonder if the JP government has learned anything from the Fukushima tragedy, if NOT from the Hiroshima n Nagasaki bombs ?  It is like dropping a nuclear bomb in your own backyard.

Why surrounding nations have limited feeling about JP’s stand in post-WW-II ?  It is simply because JP has not fully conveyed the truth publicly. Why so ?  Surely we as the JP public, would like to know PM Abe/ JP government.

Tokyo Olympic scrapped stadium project, reconsider ?

Surprise or not, but it is apparently confirmed that Olympic committee has submitted study of reconsidering of scrapped stadium project back to the PM Abe !!  What a typical JP slowness in pushing for new decision n ideas.  With all these, I imagine the committee doesn’t care about the lives of those who would be doing the actual work – construction.  They enjoy the TALK about how hard life is, how great that the project is completed in spite of the limited time rather than taking pride in caring n respect for the lives of those who made it possible for the committee to BOAST.

Good for the committee that they have armies of modern day kamikaze. So sad that the government just leave them on their own in their old age.

I imagine the general public just need to sit back n  enjoy the benefit that come out of these, who cares about who is willing to work to death (sell their lives) for a selfish committee-government. Meoww…… Back to cost debate in the near future ??    LOLOL……..

200% tax imposed on imported butter in JP

Ulala…… no wonder general public is not feeling better off in spite of PM Abe’s 3 arrows shot.  It is not a new tax, it has been so for as Iong as it could be remembered. All in the hope of agricultural protection policy.

As hard as it is to keep self sufficiency policy, while keeping cheaper products from inserting slaughtering competition, it is also important to think of the dropping purchasing power of the general public, when social support is falling n net income is not rising.

With all the debating talk about tax system that Mr Piketty proposes. It is interesting but one thing that we tend to do things more n more complicatedly. If true free competition is truly practised, then would not it make more sense that a flat tax rate is imposed at all levels of income ? It would naturally be, the more you earn, the more you pay policy too.  The social support rendered will be the government’s job. To everyone, according to his needs.  Everyone will feel fairness. Basically I do not tihink anyone is happy about being ordered to pay more, proportionately than others simply because they earn more. Different job has its life span. One might have to save more for the work’s short lifespan, thus, a higher income is needed to compensate for the shorter earning lifespan.

Bravo that some governments can combined well the positive ideology of ancient times with 21st century economy complications. No one perfect solutions but each according to his needs. How far ahead can a government see n adjust plan will bring about positive progress for her subjects.  Is not that the sole purpose of a central governing body ?  Otherwise, mankind might be better off to be enjoying free lifestyle, as caveman did, though we might find system barter a good addition.

Tokyo Olympic construction number, becoming a joke in itself.

The Tokyo Olympic stadium construction is now becoming more and more of a joke saga. Thanks goodness am not the only to ask, what has happened to the original budget number ? How could the could be real number be so, so much higher. It would either be the commitee/advisor are downright dumb with numbers or simply does not care. May the discrepancy should be taken care of them, who is RICH to be begin with !!

Mind them, the general pension pay out is being cut year after year and the fact that in the next 15 years or so, pensioners would not be able to survive with that anymore ! Yet, they think tax money can be used to pay for this – simply because they want to look grand ?? What sort of a joke is that ? Has not they learn from the story of London Olympics and the Beijing Olympic ? Yes, more budgeting will undervalue the actual book, but by double the number ? Really, I thought JP is good with numbers and accuracy. What a shame.

Hopefully, someone will come to his/er senses ASAP.

1 MDB missing numbers ?

How interesting to read about missing numbers that has been rumoured the past few months, if not already more than 12 months. 1+1=2 is a nondisputable math. How can number in bank account be missing ? A person with basic bookkeeping knows that. It has to be posted somewhere. The question will be more like WHERE and the challenge will be more like CAN IT BE RESTORED to the correct entry. It will become an international joke.

So much for a genuine heart for nationalism n who is in the helm now ? Why pointing fingers at non-BN parties when so far, the action has proven otherwise.

Please appreciate the real workers who worked behind the scene, making the country up n running with clean waters, food, working electricity, smooth transportation and telecommunications intact.

“The smallest action is grander than the grandest idea.” Talk only, no action means nothing n achieves nothing.

What a trip experience in 28+ years

First week was a week of recuperating for us as we were with respective illness. The first time we ended with unfinished golf round n cancelled the second golf round as we didn’t feel we would be capable to enjoy it under the hot n humid afternoon play. Too bad morning play wasn’t possible due to junior’s tournament at our favourite course.

As we were recovering, I got into dental trouble, having discovered that a crown fell down the drain in the night. Then there was the long holiday and I had to change return schedule to Thursday, 2 days earlier so as to get to dentist ASAP.

Return day turned to be a horror as urination became a problem that had me rushed to ER, Ota Rosai Hospital. Cleared the emergency temporary. Was advised to go for thorough check up ASAP thereafter.

It was the most relaxing Penang trip we had in years, that is, We were not running around for golf every alternate days. That was fun too as we do not get to play a lot in JP, given travel distance n high green fee. It is simply that time becomes so limited when golf rounds are that frequent.  

This time, we got to meet up with an old friend who happened to be in Penang too for the Labour Day holiday. Wow…….25+ years ! She hasn’t changed much. I could recognise her from afar. Too bad that another gentleman had to be missed as time to go for me came.  😑. It was more 2.5 hours for us already.  It was quite an as hoc arrangement as I caught from FB posting that she could be in town.  

The next day after arriving, and the ER run, spent another half a day plus in hospital, waiting for check up on the sudden problem. Not much was known and some result will yet to come forth. Will go back later in the month again.  

Finally got to visit local dentist on Saturday as an unprecedented check up was needed the immediate next day to follow up on my sudden ER needed treatment upon arrival on Thursday night. Shocking, indeed when nature turned on you unexpectedly. 😨

Will need sometime more as decision making here is slow.  Guess I’ll be a little more assertive in next visit as a reason for it needs to be pinpointed.  It would be wise so as to know how to cater to it when it happens again…….. My usual doctor noted that I should go to their ER next time. It could be a key to present unsolved issue too. Frankly I drag the thought of having that experience the second time !

In the meantime, counting down on the day when my tooth treatment will complete. Haven’t been able to chew properly since 30-Apr !!  

Can’t wait to play golf now……. Hopefully, we’ll be in perfect condition as time passes.

(JP) government appointed financial advisor for elderly ?

I wonder if most of the JP eldlerly were still living in the age where bad guys did not exist ? Most of these elderly peoples are seniles. The government is hoping that the neighbourhood will be on the lookout for their welfare as well. Do they no realise that there is limit to such possibility, especially given the structure of homes around JP. How sad isn’t it that as advance as this country is, the welfare of elderly (75+) is lacking family care and somehow, so secluded to themselves. Most of them are supposed to be in care-homes, for their own sake. What other proof is needed (for such need) when the elderly is so obviously no longer able to do simple decision. In a population when the working group is dwindling, will the government be able to supply such advisor to every elderly in need ?

How sad the logical and facts no longer counts. As the elderly hope to not burden the young, they are, in their decision to linger on on their own, creates the unnecessary burden to the precious young.

Mankind likes rituals and rules after all ?

It has always makes me wonder, why some young peoples, 20-40s, from around the globe flock to JP shrines and even local JP youngs, join in post-AUM cults. They have happily submit to the rules and rituals, believing that they will find peace and/or God through all these.

Yet, decades if not centuries ago, it was our ancestors who had shunned these rituals and rules that democarcy comes to birth. Mankind, since the beginning has longed for and know that there is a God, the Creator inside. Nothing in this world has fully satisfied a person – how mnay of the rich and powerful have died with much personal struggle, fearing death, even trying to stay alive.

Kingdoms and powers have come and go, just as said in the oldest book – The Bible. Lots of debates, proven and yet to be proven, about its written have been incurred over the decades. Tressure hunters use it as the start of search points.

Religion founders have all sought to provide methods to gain inner peace and reconciliation with God, the Creator. One even offer proposal that mankind will reincarnate into the next level of life, if good enough, will become a serene being, relieved from the circle ?? I assume.

Yet no mankind will ever be good enough – assuming that we could agree on what good is, to the extent of what we generally would expect of a good God.

World temptations as we may call them – fame, popularity, richness, etc……. certainly are very devil that prevent us from attaining goodness. The questions who is your supported that enables you to overcome these  evil and sees you through.
