KL in more turbulent times

Hi. My Battlescenes posting attracted quite a lot of views. I think that is maybe because we have never associated Kuala Lumpur streets with war and stuff. That is why actual scenes of war on KL streets can seem a bit surreal.

So in this particular posting, i would like to post more pictures when things were a bit more complicated than they are now. This was when communist terrorist was active in Malaysia; my father refers to those time as "zaman kominis" which means "communist era".

Again, I love to go into some details about this pictures and the history, but I just don't have the time right now. I've done short summaries for the pics I posted. Short summaries would not do them justice, I know, but what to do, I've got no time. Anyway, enjoy the pictures.

Although in 1970s the Malayan Communist were pretty much contained to the jungles, once in a while they reminded city folks that they were still relevant and walked amongst us. On August 26, 1975, they bombed the National Monument or Tugu Negara, which removed one whole statue and the heads of three other statue.

  2. The malay pig have drawn up a plan to displace all non-malays. They are discriminating against all non-malays. More and more non-malays are leaving.

    You know why he/she need to leave……….? It is all because of those idiots who voted for the pig government to chase those talents out of this country.

    This scenario would stay.

    They would prefer to remain backward, so long as they are in control over you and me. I think they enjoy seeing non-malays begging all the time.

    Even though they are left far behind Korea, Taiwan and now Thailand is coming up strong. To them these are not competitors. In their narrow mind, the 'enemies' are local non-malays. Must suppress, by all means.

    All malay pig are programmed to be promoted much faster ahead of non-malays the moment they join University Malaya. Soon University Malaya will be dominated by malay pig and the ranking will slip further.

    Most of the malay pig in Malaysia cannot think clearly, their mind and thinking are clouded by such things as comfort zone, frog-in-a-well syndrome, ignorance, racial pride, stubbornness, etc.

  3. Well, UMNO managed to achieve one thing. The BTN-type morons, have been overwhelmingly successful in brainwashing todays 27 million citizens.

    Who says that the peninsular was always called Tanah Melayu? This is a recent British term!

    Tanah Melayu was never the name until the British came and colonized the peninsular.

    Malai means hill in Tamil; as to describe the Titiwangsa range on the said peninsular since the 2nd century by the Gujerati traders who set up their formidable Hindu empire at Lembah Bujang.

  4. Know what malay pig? A suck babi hutan pendatang from Indonesia, pencuri of Tanah Orang Asli, should be caught by all the Chinese whom you have insulted.

    They will then pack you in a pig basket, parade you round Chinatown in KL, to let the Chinese pelt rotten eggs, throw shit and pour all the pig shit from the nearby pig farms on your head.

    Then let them take you out of your pig basket and roast you over an extremely hot fire until you become barbecued pork. After that chop your stinking carcass and leave it in the streets of rural for all those vultures and crows to feed on. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Why only malays? You think this country is yours alone? What has the government really done for the pribumis and the Orang Asli? Look at how Umno has screwed up Sabah Indonesians and Filipinos getting citizenship and enjoying the same benefits as you the moment they hop off the boat!

    You go ask the government to stop all that then I will stop thinking you are speaking through your asshole.

    Podah! You are nothing but a chauvinist malay pig like the rest.

    It seems like Malaysia is still not ready for globalisation because of a bunch of anti-social racist morons like you. Our country already independent for so many donkey years but sorry to see still got such shortsighted moron like you.

    Bangsa melayu failed in the past 30 years with lots of help from Umno but still failed! Then they blame the Chinese cheat la, marginalise them la, this la that la……….so much excuses! If you are pariah, forever you are pariah!

    If you malay pig race lazy, no matter how much with the government help, it will back to square.

    For me, I just speak up what I had observed and not like the malay race who is always jealous about other race success. Bad hearted.

    What the hell you ask all the Chinese to get out from Malaysia in your comment post? It is proven you are another racist moron bastard!

    Malay failure is the fact! It has been happened since 30 years ago and not just now. If you keep on denying it proven again you are just another loser or hypocrite!

    Truth - what is so proud of asking Chinese to be like your kind of robbers, liars, cheaters in Malaysia? Kaum tongkat yang langsung tak tahu malu! Yes, you motherf***ker are stupid, lazy, fanatic, thus you need tongkat forever! Dick head!

    Kaum tongkat still can survive in most of the zoos overseas. See the UPM red shirt "Orang Utan". At least they could be the laughing stock to this world.

    If malays with 50% population in Malaysia none of them success, then I reckon you jump to the sea. That so!

    Once again, with you racist pig moron, Malaysia wouldn't go far as far as globalisation is all about!

    You are truly one of those Umno babi hutan with shit plastered all over your brain and fulfilling Hang Tuah policy in reverse! With babi hutan like you whose brains are filled with tahi babi - it would be melayu akan hilang di dunia!
