Malaysia National Day

31st of August, Malaysia National Day is round the corner. Let's see Malaysia in history!

"Malay nationalism and desire for self-rule was felt around the 1930's. A call for independence was made, but the Second World War stopped it. Later, the movement resumed and independence was declared on the 31st of August, in 1957. In 1963, Malaysia was formed, bringing together the states of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak. Singapore, however,left the federation in 1965."

I'm looking forward for the day to come since hubby and I will go Genting Highland and Kuala Lumpur on that day! We are meeting my auntie at Kuala Lumpur and go Genting Highland together for a night's stay.

What's your program on our National Day?

The 2008 Olympic is finally coming to an end on 17th Aug 2008. It's too bad that I could not watch it live on television. I'm on my way back from Kuantan on that time!

Luckily I found some of the photos online which could let me have a look on the closing ceremony's interesting happening.

Olympics Opening Ceremony

The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games emblem "Chinese Seal, Dancing Beijing" is filled with Beijing's hospitality and hopes, and carries the city's commitment to the world.
Fuwa will serve as the Official Mascots of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, carrying a message of friendship and peace -- and good wishes from China -- to children all over the world. They are designed to express the playful qualities of five little children who form an intimate circle of friends, Fuwa also embody the natural characteristics of four of China's most popular animals -- the Fish, the Panda, the Tibetan Antelope, the Swallow -- and the Olympic Flame.

08.08.08, a good day for all Chinese, and it's surely memorable as today will be 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Day. I bet the streets will be cleared of cars and peoples tonight. I'm sure everybody are eagerly waiting in front of the television by 8pm. Are you one of them?

What to do if stopped by a Malaysian police?

This is is very useful information. The next time you are stopped by persons who claimed they are plain clothes police, you are under no obligation to answer their questions or follow their orders.

'Policeman who is not wearing his uniform does not have the authority to stop anyone,'lawyer and human rights activist Sivarasa Rasiah said.

Sivarasa was commenting on the alleged gang-rape of an 18-year-old Uni student by four men claiming to be police officers on New Year's Eve. The girl said that her car was stopped in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur and were asked by the men to open the car bonnet. She was then told that she had committed an offence and ordered to follow the men to a police station. The girl was driven in her car along the North-South expressway to the Tapah-Cameron Highlands road before she was raped in an oil palm estate.

This incident, and many others, have sparked confusion over the procedures which motorists must follow when flagged down by the police. The most common problem is that most people take instructions without determining if the other person is really a cop,' lawyer Annie Santiago said.

'However, if you are stopped by a uniformed policeman, then you are required to stop. But you need not get out of the car because you are not expected to do so,' Santiago said.

The other rule to follow is to provide your identity card only when you are asked to do so.

'Even then, you should get his ID first to confirm if he is a cop. There is no harm in calling the relevant police station to verify if he is supposed to be on duty that day,' Sivarasa said.

Both lawyers said that motorists should never follow an officer to the police station unless one is under arrest.

'If you are not sure, and your instincts tell you that something is wrong, then drive off to the nearest police station and lodge a report,' Sivarasa said.

In response to the alleged gang-rape of the 18-year-old, Women's Aid Organisation executive-secretary Ivy Josiah called on the police to launch an education program to teach the public about their rights to prevent them from being victimised by bogus police officers.

Procedures to follow in the event you are stopped by uniformed police Officers while driving:
1. Stop the car and wind down your window.
2. If the police officers ask for your documents, request to see their IDs first.
3. If you are satisfied about their identity, ask them if you are being summoned, and for what offense.
4. Produce your identity card and driver's license and wait to collect your summon ticket.

In the event that the police officers ask you to follow them to the police station:
1. Ask if you are under arrest and for what offense.
2. If you are not under arrest, you have the right to leave.

In the event you are flagged down by persons you believe could be plain clothes police:
1. Do not stop because plain clothes police officers do not have the authority to stop you.
2. Drive to the nearest police station and lodge a report.
(The same procedure applies to pedestrians)

In the event the police come to your house:
1. Do not let them in before checking their IDs.
2. If you are not satisfied, phone the nearest police station and confirm if they had been sent to your house.
3. You are under no obligation to allow them into the house if they don't have a search warrant
4. Do not go with them if you are not under arrest.

In the event persons who claimed to be plain clothes police come to your house:
1. Do not let him in because they do not have the authority to do so.
2. Lodge a report at the nearest police station.
