Chua Blames Pakatan Rakyat for S114A of Evidence Act

One can’t help but laugh at MCA President Chua Soi Lek at blaming Pakatan Rakyat for the inclusion of Section 114A into the Evidence Act.

The party who put that in is the BN Government of which he is a part of.

The reason he blames Pakatan Rakyat is that they failed to stop it.

What a blast of stupidity and absurdity in the superlative! And Chua SL has a medical degree which probably gave him a permanent head damage (wink!).

You can pick it up from here.

Malaysians remember that the Evidence Act amendment was bulldozed through Parliament together with many others with little time to study or debate.

Chua SL has surely lost his head and the plot and the support of Malaysian voters with this silly blame the everyone can see through him.

Dr Chua, you have made the joke and became the joker of the day yet again!

Malaysia Silver but the winner is Baskin-Robbins! Updated

Updated: Baskin Robbins announced that there will still be free ice cream given out tomorrow at 61 participating outlets. Go celebrate with Baskin Robbins with 1 scoop per person free between 8pm and 10pm. Kudos to Baskin Robbins. Winner by far. (read here)

Lee Chong Wei played a gallant game in a nail-biting finish against China’s Lin Dan. Alas, Malaysia’s first Olympics gold medal remains illusive with Lin Dan outplaying Chong Wei. Overall, it was an exciting game and Chong Wei did his best. Lin Dan is still much better in his game than Chong Wei and he deserves his number one world rating.

When Baskin-Robbins announced that they will be giving out free ice cream on 8th August if Chong Wei won the gold medal, the entire Malaysia cheered. Everyone knows how expensive Baskin-Robbins ice cream is and a chance to taste this is a dream come true. Just as winning the first gold medal for Malaysia and the entire Malaysia shared the joy of the promise.

This is a masterful piece of marketing indeed. Had Chong Wei won, Baskin-Robbins will have to fork out free ice cream for the day. That’s not much considering the effectiveness of gaining the mind share for the brand name.

However, everybody knows that Chong Wei is the underdog chasing for his gold medal that he lost poorly in the Beijing Olympics. And Baskin-Robbins knows that it is an outside chance for Chong Wei to win and all for Lin Dan to lose. It is expected for Lin Dan to win and that he did.

As it turned out, Baskin-Robbins gained significant mind share for the brand name without giving out a free scoop of ice cream.

Hats off to Baskin-Robbins! They are now the most well known ice cream in the country for free.

Thanks to Lee Chong Wei. Or is it Lin Dan?
