Rich man, Poor man

Just read and thought I might as well share, hmmm....what will I do with so much money?

150 richest Indonesians representing 12% of the GDP.

Globe Asia’s 150 Richest Indonesians Total Net-Worth a Cool $61.5 Billion

150 richest people did very well last year. Their total net-worth rose
22 percent to 61.5 billion, which represents 12 percent of Indonesia’s gross domestic
In this year’s Globe Asia’s 150 richest Indonesians issue,
those who did the best were the tycoons who were able to unlock the
values of their assets.
Tycoons such as Peter Sondakh of the
Rajawali group increased their net-worths by selling significant stakes
in their companies. Sondakh sold his 20 percent stake in Semen Gresik and his
stake in cigarette maker Bentoel for a combined total of nearly $700
Others such as Aburizal Bakrie and Chairul Tanjung increased
their net-worths by acquiring stakes in other companies or listing parts
of their companies.

Red Bull blinked in the F1 Turkish GP

It was an interesting race indeed. Red Bull could have easily took the 1 and 2 position if not for their costly team rivalry which resulted not only in the lost of positions and points but more importantly team moral and spirit.

It was a blessing for Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button and with the 1 and 2 finished, McLaren Mercedes is now in the lead for the constructor's title with 172 points after 8 races. However, the title chase is not over just as yet as there are 11 more races to go.

Happy Wesak Day

On this day May 28, 2010, I would like to wish all my Buddhists friends and blog visitors a very happy Wesak Day and may the way of life brings peace, harmony and happiness to all of mankind.

With this, here's a quote from Dalai Lama “I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness…”

Cool Stuff coming soon for gamers

As usual, sharing some stuff which is cool. This article from Idris of idea couture is something that will probably take the gaming industry to next level.

I am personally not a gamer but from the look of it, the younger C generations will definitely pick this up fast once introduced. Gone are the days of Pacman (although google recently re-introduced it with free downloads).

I would like to add that as for the older generations above their 40's, the acceptance will be somewhat slower as pointed out by Idris,"hard core gamers finished a day at work and all they needed is a beer, sat down on a couch and pick up a controller to play a few hours. I don't think they like the idea of jumping around"

How will gaming turn out to be in the next few years? I guess the best insights and tips is to take a look at Hollywood sci-fi TVs shows and movies related to IT and Tech.

Is Motion Gaming The Next Big Thing? Can Sony Make A Come Back?

Screen shot 2010-05-25 at 9.25.56 AM
The video game industry have been reporting some slowing down and there is a shift in terms of top selling games, the list was been dominated by Wii and Xbox titles for a more than 18 months. Just last month, 4 of the top 10 were for the PS3 ( God of War III, the top seller, with 1.1 million units sold). This is good news for Sony. PS3 is not question a better built console, free network gaming and high performance. But at the time of launch it was an overkill.

Screen shot 2010-05-25 at 3.50.59 PM
Three years later, Sony will soon be showing off the PlayStation Move, a belated response to the Wii which was highly successful attracting non-consumers. Can they take advantage of what the Wii has started or they are going to take the idea further and beat Nintendo at their own game. Now the Wii trend is almost over.

To report or not to?

Najib’s call to the media

"BUT to shape society's knowledge, so that we are more intellectual, critical, and can think objectively, this is also the role of the press. You can't report only stories that are sensational, hot or about conflicts only." These were Umno president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's words during the 20 May 2010 groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Utusan Melayu (M) Ltd's new headquarters. Najib also said, "[The] integrity of your reports is important, because there is no point if you constantly need to apologise for your news."
Reporters from some other independent media outlets have characterised this as Najib "reprimanding" Malay-language daily Utusan Malaysia, or "calling for change". Najib seemed to be making a general assessment of the national media. But his remarks are certainly pertinent as president of the party that owns Utusan Malaysia, Utusan Melayu's flagship publication.

iPad selling like hot cakes

It was over a presentation last Thursday when a business partner who got his iPad from the States used it for the presentation. I immediately fell in love with it! It was cool, the colors are rich and the picture quality is good and very user-friendly touchscreen too.

Unfortunately for people like me who do not have business trips to the USA, I have no choice but to wait for it until Apple launched it in Asia sometime on July 10, and that is only in Singapore together with 9 other countries.

I also read that iPad is selling fast in US with sales hitting the 200K mark per week and outsold Macs estimated at 110K units.

iPad Still Selling Like Crazy, Sold-Out at Most Apple Stores

According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, in most of Apple’s retail stores in the U.S. the iPad is either sold-out or in very limited supply, especially the 3G model.
Furthermore, Apple’s online store now lists that iPad is shipping in 7-10 days (previously it was 5-7) days, which also indicates that Apple is selling more iPads than it anticipated.
“Seventy-four percent of the stores we checked were completely sold out of all iPad models, 26 percent had some WiFi models in stock, and no stores had any 3G models available,” Munster claims.
iPad sales have been phenomenal from the very beginning. Earlier this month, Apple announced it had sold one million iPads. On May 28, iPad is slated to begin shipping in European countries. The question is: Will Apple have enough iPads to satisfy the demand?

Is this a HOAX? Or is it for real?

I hope my eyes are not starring at some kind of cosmic effects as I read the clipped below.

The question is "What took you so long, Mr. PM?" As the Javanese here in Indonesia would say "Untung" or luckily" use in the context as in "better late than never"

Let's wait see if there will be any changes in Utusan's style of reporting and with this, will there be heads rolling. I'll take this with a pinch of salt for now. Only time will tell,

What about the other newspaper titles then? Surely is not only Utusan, No?

Utusan must change ways, says Najib

KUALA LUMPUR, May 20 — Controversial Umno mouthpiece, Utusan Malaysia, must transform itself if it wishes to stay relevant, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.
The Malay-language daily pushes Umno’s agenda — often through racially-tinged articles against the party’s rivals — but Najib urged the 72-year-old newspaper to be more than just the party’s mouthpiece.
“I understand that sensational news sells... especially with that ‘one person,’” he said in a veiled reference to Utusan Malaysia’s constant attacks on Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
“But you must also be a medium to build an intellectual culture, a critical society,” the Umno president added.

Social Media Rules of Engagement

It is good or not to have rules of engagement using social media?

I guess it will be good to have a certain degree of rules to follow and observe so as to keep the sanity of the ever changing social and connected world.

Read all about the rules in a modified version by following the link in the clipped below.
clipped from

As social media continues to evolve, defining the “rules of engagement” will encourage thoughtful interaction that benefits the business, brand, customer, peers, and prospects at every touchpoint. In the end, we earn the attention, relationships and business we deserve.

The following is an outline of best practices to help you craft a practical set of rules to guide representatives as they engage.

1. Discover all relevant communities of interest and observe the choices, challenges, impressions, and wants of the people within each network.

2. Don’t just participate solely in your own domains (Facebook Fan Page, Twitter conversations related to your brand, etc.). Participate where your presence is advantageous and mandatory.

3. Determine the identity, character, and personality of the brand and match it to the persona of the individuals representing it online.

Kongkor migration - Updated after having second thoughts!

My earlier post below refers...and now I have second thoughts about deactivation of this blog. The reason was rather simple, a quick check with my Google Analytic (of which Kongkor started using them only on April 22) reveals some very interesting facts. In just 26 days after running analytic and Link Assitant, the results was encouraging from practically zero visit.

In terms of traffic source, the results are as equally encouraging,
1) Referring site - 43.68%
2) Direct traffic - 34.21%
3) Search engine - 21.93%

With these results in mind, Kongkor was a little myopic to have wrote the article about migrating to another platform and has decided to keep this blog. Having said this, Kongkor will continue to upload the articles of interest that uses "clip mark" for both blogs. Nevertheless, Kongkor will do some 'soul searching' on what this blog should stand for and hope that it doesn't take too long in the process amongst the other commitment in life.

My apologies to the 3 visitors today for having read about the aborted migration plan and my sincere appreciation to those who have been dropping by so far.

Over the past week, I have been busy setting up my blog in WordPress and have since exported all the post here over there. It is still early days and I am still toying with the themes and appearance. So, for newer post, please go to for the latest updates.

Meantime, this blog will still be here until the time is right for deactivation.

Amazing, Exciting and Trilling race in Monaco

As Kongkor predicted earlier, it was indeed a very exciting Monaco GP in the Formula 1 world championship. Key highlights for this race,

• Vettel’s lap one overtaking Kubica from 3rd to 2nd place.

• Alonso’s superb overtaking of the Virgin and Lotus cars as well as a quick pit stop during the first safety-car period.

• Hulkenberg’s lost of control under the tunnel accident.

• Four safety-car period. Safety car on track until the very last lap 78.

• Spectacular accident involving the car of Chandhok from team HRT and Trulli from team Lotus.

• Schumacher’s overtaking of Alonso on the last lap after the safety car, still controversial for now until the stewards made a final decision.

• Mark Webber’s back-to-back P1 finished, the very first for this season by any driver.

What a race it has been, full of thrills, frills and spills. Next stop, Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix on May 30.

Check out the driver’s championship standings here.

Monaco GP Pre race analysis

Can Robert Kubica clinch the title in Monaco for Renault today? Based on this analysis, it is going to be hard but not impossible. Nevertheless, if this happen, then F1 could be exciting given that Monaco is not an easy overtaking street circuit. The exceptional qualifying performance of Kubica has certainly given the team a high dosage of adrenalin and it's about time Kubica take full advantage to get a podium finish. Would love to see this happening.

However, my bet will be for a Red Bull 1 and 2 finish, given that Vettel on P3 is behind Webber on pole and both the Red Bull cars are on the cleaner racing line.

While at the back end of the grid, Alonso will be starting from the pit lane due to Q1 qualifying accident yesterday. The prancing horse definitely showed lots of pace during practice and qualifying but the circuit is not forgiving either. So, Alonso has to dig deep and drive like there is no tomorrow in order to secure any points. Unless...there is the safety car intervention or pit stop mechanical glitches of the other top teams. Let's see later how it all pan out then.

For the second Sunday in a row Mark Webber finds himself on pole position at circuit where overtaking is notoriously difficult.

But the challenges of strategy and traffic – not to mention 78 laps avoiding Monaco’s unforgiving walls – means a win for him tomorrow cannot be taken for granted.

The start

Pole position is the place to be at Monte-Carlo. Start from there and you’re unlikely to be beaten into turn one.

It hasn’t happened since 2002, when David Coulthard, starting second, beat pole sitter Juan Pablo Montoya into the first corner. So Mark Webber is looking pretty secure.

Facebook Exodus Planned for May 31: Will You Quit?

When Facebook launched its Open Graph API and brought instant personalization to the web it probably didn’t expect users to revolt — but they are. In light of growing concerns around user privacy, Matthew Milan and Joseph Dee are attempting to mobilize a formal Facebook revolt with Quit Facebook Day.

The purpose of the site is to encourage those “sick of Facebook’s lack of respect for your data” to quit the social networking site. Users can “commit to quit” with their Twitter handle or name and join the others publicly pledging to do so in unison.

F1 Grand Prix De Monaco weekend

Judging from the timing achieved by the top teams on Friday practice, the Monaco street race circuit comes May 16 is set to be exciting as ever. 78 laps of awesome V8 engine sound and burning rubbers on the 3.340km track is something to look forward to.

Another F1 weekend in front of the TV coming up in 2 days time.

The teams spent Thursday in Monaco carrying out their usual evaluation of the prime and option Bridgestone tyres (medium and super soft here), and handling on low and high fuel loads, while acclimatising themselves to the new higher kerbs and road surfacing of the Monte Carlo track. The general feeling is that the option tyre degrades quicker than the prime - and that things will be extremely tight in qualifying, both in terms of traffic and times. We take a team-by-team look at progress…

Great news for betting football fans Malaysia

Football betting is going to be legal in Malaysia soon with the award of a multi-biilion Ringgit deal with the Berjaya group. Read the clip to the link below to find out more.

Hey, isn't this against the official religion of the country? and now UMNO/BN is going to legalized it. woohooohooo!!!

I especially like this part taken from

"'Next: Berjaya to apply Halal logo?'

Mahfuz said as a direct result of legalising gambling, the UMNO-led government not only destroyed local sports but also the family institution and the people's income.

"At the same time, BN's crony Berjaya Group will be forking out huge profits," he said.

On a more sarcastic note, Mahfuz said Berjaya would perhaps apply for the Halal certificate from minister in the prime minister's department, Jamil Khir Baharom.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 13: PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar said that the decision to legalise betting for the coming World Cup season by prime minister Najib Razak was a grave injustice to the people.

"Najib's government has in fact victimised the people by making them habitual gamblers. Once gambling is legalised, more people will succumb to the habit and become addicted," said Mahfuz.
Deputy Finance Minister Dr Awang Adek Hussein had recently stated the government's intention to legalise gambling before the start of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa next month, arguing that the move was made to curb illegal gambling and to find revenue for the government.

A center-spread ad costing US180K to US230K

Why in the world would the wife of Malaysian Prime Minister wanted to place an ad in the center-spread of a US newspaper? Who is paying for the hefty bill? Reading the headline, we all know where the money is coming from.

Rosmah ad placed on govt’s behalf

By Koh Lay Chin

PETALING JAYA, 11 May 2010: A recent two-page spread in the New York Times, costing thousands of US dollars and featuring the prime minister's wife, was placed on behalf of the Malaysian government.
In an e-mail response to questions from The Nut Graph, the New York Times said: "The advertisement was placed by an ad agency on behalf of the Malaysian government."
The response from New York Times executive director of community affairs and media relations, Diane McNulty, reveals that the ad was not placed by private individuals, as suggested by the last line in the ad's congratulatory message.

There is so much more the money can do for the poor and needy in Malaysia, why blew it in just an ad. Anyway, who in the USA would want to have a second look at the ad? It boggles my mind!

F1 - The European leg kicks off in Spain

This should be an interesting F1 weekend to watch. Prior to the 3 weeks break, the top teams have been busy preparing their cars with technical upgrades and much of it will be unfold from tomorrow during the official practice sessions.

Things may change very quickly comes Saturday for the qualifying rounds and whatever technical glitches the teams faced have to be immediately rectified and sorted as they line up at starting grid on Sunday.

Looking very much forward to Barcelona

Spain Preview - who's taken the biggest step forward?

The world championship battle really starts this weekend as the Spanish Grand Prix signals the commencement of the European leg, if you believe Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso. As his national race celebrates its 40th running since 1951, the Spaniard lies third in the title chase with 49 points to McLaren’s Jenson Button’s 60 and Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg’s 50.
Alonso insists that the opening races just underlined the general trend of winter testing, but that from this race onwards the development race has really got underway. “In Europe it is time to show who is going to fight for the title and who isn’t,” he said at a recent press conference in Spain.

Malaysian man in blue just cannot change

Will the police shooting of Aminulrasyid Amzah be another case of NFA being stamped on the case file with the so called 'high powered" police inquiry? Or will it be another threaten the foreign pathologist inquiry of the Teoh Beng Hock case , And what happened to Kugan in the "die in jail" police beating case?

The MO seems all too familiar and it is hard to even believe a word the police have to say in their defense. The police just do not seems to understand the concept of upholding the law and justice of the country entrusted to them and it is the 'big brother' attitude of some of the senior officers starting from the IGP that is giving law enforcers a bad name. Can we then equate the man in blue as a licensed and organized crime outfit? And the police seems to be getting away with ..... all the time. Shhhssssh!

The arrogance of police power

NEW A week after schoolboy Aminulrasyid Amzah's death by police shooting, Malaysians have been treated to the ghastly spectacle of a government withdrawing into itself in the face of public outrage, and seemingly intent only on finding grounds for justifying its actions.
Left in abeyance is the fact that governments exist in democratic nations to ensure the safety of all its citizens, and to ensure equal justice for all, no matter what their station in life.

Global Social Media Trends - Asia Impact

Check out this SlideShare Presentation: As we moved forward to an even more CONNECTED world, this slide shows the rising trend and usage of social media in our everyday lives. Marketers and brand owners whether they like it or not, the early adopters of this trend will definitely have a better competitive advantage, an upper hand over the 'somewhat skeptics'

Unfortunately in Indonesia and in my work, I come across more of the 'somewhat skeptics' as opposed to the early adopters. I am still hopeful things will change when they hear more on how we can leverage in a more synergistic approach between the traditional and new media.

Thanks to Tom Smith of Trendstream for the insights.

Social Media Trend

The rapid growth pace of technology, the rapid growth rate of mobile apps and easy interface of APIs is set to change the way people interact, connect and share. There is no turning back in terms of technology advancement and at the rate it is going, it will be a matter of days newer platform will surface and be adopted. The question then lies in what we do, how we adopt and adapt and how this explosion will affect the practitioners and advocates. The future is mobile: anywhere, anyplace, anytime

Mind boggling for those who are starting to get a grip on what's happening, what more to those who are not connected at all.

Here's a take from one of my favorite sites, talking about social media which I find most useful for a late starter like me.

Social Media 2012 : 11 trends you should watch
"It’s easy to get caught up in today’s trends or even focus on the next six months. Some of 2009’s biggest trends included an increased emphasis on real-time search and information distribution, while distribution of marketing content in widgets and other pieces of portable content that worked across devices and social spaces also saw its stake rise. Plus, there were great improvements in social-media monitoring and analytics. And most notably, marketers finally acknowledged that social media was more than just a fad, with almost complete adoption by all major marketers"

1st Speaker's Corner in Malaysia and it is in my home state

I am glad to hear that today in Penang, the Speakers' Corner was launched.  "The Speakers’ Corner fulfills the aspirations of empowering the people by encouraging citizens to exercise their constitutional rights under Article 10 (1)(a) of the Federal Constitution of freedom of speech and expression and Article 10 (1)(b) where all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably." MT

I especially like point No.7 in Penang Chief Minister's speech in launching the Speakers' Corner.

" I have always said that a good government must do three things: listen to the people, do the people’s work and give hope to the people. The Speakers’ Corner serves as a catalyst to the growing spirit of democracy throughout Penang and the willingness of the state government to listen to the people to be a good government" You can read the rest of the speech here posted in 'My Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.'

Now, how many more states in Malaysia will follow this small step in recognizing the peoples' right to free speech? This small step will hopefully generate many more bigger steps in the long road for democracy.

Well done, Penang.

Indonesia's GREEN energy initiatives

A very positive step to be undertaken by Indonesia tapping into the huge natural resource of geothermal energy fully endorsed by President SBY.  It is with the hope that this momentum will pick up speed as the need for power of the country will increased significantly. Less burning of coal and fuel to produce energy will certainly reduce the carbon emission into the atmosphere.

Indonesia sitting on the Pacific Ring of Fire will certainly gain from this green source of energy and this initiative is to be fully supported. Well done, Indonesia.

Here's the story from The Jakarta Post online.

Go green and save the environment. Every little step counts for a better tomorrow. The future is in our hands, spread the word around, force your local government and businesses to think and go for a more sustainable solutions in governance and business practices.

A very powerful article that speaks on my behalf in Malaysia

Why is it after 53 years of independence in Malaysia, they are still debating on nationality?

I for one, when asked by my Indonesian friends about my nationality is very proud to say that I AM MALAYSIAN. 'Fortunately or unfortunately', I am born in an ethnic Chinese family (my father was born in Malaya while my mother who has since passed away came from China at a very young age) and I carry a Malaysian identity card and passport. This is enough for me to get all my legal working permits, travel visas and reporting documents for a foreigner to work in Indonesia and as such, this makes me a Malaysian citizens and not Chinese citizen. Simple as that.

Like it or not, with an ethnic Chinese DNA, I still do make an effort to understand the culture, wisdom and teachings on the Chinese philosophy and way of life. Having said so, I will take and practice what is good and discard what is deemed to have clash with my principles. As a citizen, I take it upon myself to learn and acquire the necessary knowledge of the other ethnic races in Malaysia so as to live with my neighbors harmoniously and not to show any disrespect. In my mind, the question of nationality and loyalty to the country is a non issue, unlike some of the politicians who kept harping on it like an old trumpet.

What then is all the fuss about in Malaysia as advocated by some of the politicians (and recently the author from Utusan Malaysia newspaper) whether or not I am grateful or otherwise? My advise to all those racist politicians is to INTROSPECT and as the Indonesian will say "Ngaca donk!" and "Jangan bagai katak dalam tempurung".

From Free Malaysia Today, an article by Kee Thuan Chye prompted me to penned the above thoughts and hopefully get the message to those who are still debating on such issues.
