Pain management 101

In the past few weeks, a lot had been said about crime and parenting skills. Some quarter said we should punish the parents.Some say nay. Some say we should conduct more initiative on crime prevention...bla bla bla.

But how come my phone hasn't been ringing with request/s from the same party who said that we should provide safe environment for the children and adult alike through crime prevention campaign?

I know for a fact that no one cares.

There was this wing who re-primanded me to 'tone down and not to over-shadow' their chief when i was about to go on stage once upon a time in Mempaga.Till this day, i do not want to carry out any crime prevention activity with or for them anymore. I dont work with clowns.

As a matter of fact, for the past 7 years, only 3 calls were made from this wing to invite me to work together with them.But yet, they claimed recently that we should put more effort in combating crime to ensure the safety of our kids!

For the record, i had conducted many many crime prevention workshops everywhere in Malaysia. The Government, Opposition, Orang Asli, Estate etc..To me, i m like a doctor or fireman. Professionalisme. I have to serve everybody regardsless of their camp. Besides, criminal doesn't ask question which side are you on before they rob and stab you innit?

I have no qualm to work together with anyone except the wing mentioned above. Why? I dont work with jokers, clowns and people who is much more interested in ensuring that the opening gimmick is greater than the talk itself! AHAKS!!

So, when a person talks "with grave concern" about the crime that effects the kids, I pinched myself on my flabby tummy. I just want to shift the pain somewhere...


My previous posting disqualified any person,if any, mentioned above. Reason: Brain should be attached to head all the time.

The other day, someone bumped into me and began hurling strong worded opinion and question. I just stood there with a smile, just. I did what i do best; look at him with pity..pity that he had to prove he is indeed not as smart as he thought he was.

I then asked his a simple question.

Who is Razak Baginda? Respond-Political Analyst.
Prof Khoo Kay Kim? Respond- Historical Analyst.
What do you call a person who speculate on the Bourse? Respond- Investment Analyst.
What about economy? Respond- Economic Analyst.

Then, he was mute. 3 sec after that he walked away..head pointing to the ground. I could hear him muttering something which sounded like "sorry..i was wrong". Then again, as he was walking away, it may be just my imagination.

I didnt get a chance to inform him how and what i got to do to be a crime analyst.

Dont get me wrong. The above names i mentioned are very well qualified either by training, experience and academic status. They are the walking Wiki. When they talk, its all factual, precise and as-a-matter-of-fact speaking. They are the pros.Even i envy them.

They are being called an analyst because;

1) they are the masters in their field.
2) they dont have to abide by an International Association which govern the usage of the title Crime Analyst.

I was not given a chance to explain to him that i had to go through working experience, field and skill test, competency test, exams and what-have-you to be an analyst.

There are about 1686 crime analyst in the world. Only 4 in Asia; one each in Philippines, India, Hongkong and Malaysia. Only 1 in 1686 is a Malay-by-default! Ahaks.

Morale of the story; In my own country, male and female alike, you cant be a Malay, young, slightly good looking (he he...i am..i am) and talented all at the same time! Now, where is my eraser a.k.a. rubber ya? I need no erase something lah..Eh, where is my pensel 2B ha? I gotta fill in the blank..a new blank.AHAKS!!
