Spotlight: Is this how we treat man’s best friend?

“… IT is one day an 11-year-old girl will unlikely forget. On July 15, a group of armed men stormed into her neighbourhood in Labuan and shot her pet dog twice in front of her house compound.

They hoisted the badly wounded dog, still kicking alive, by its tail and left.

Jonathan Ang, father of the Year Five student, says his daughter is still having nightmares and has yet to recover from the trauma.

The 20 to 30 “trained sharp-shooters” were deployed by the Labuan Corporation’s Veterinary Department to eliminate strays in the area, with help from the People’s Volunteer Corp (Rela).
In the 12-day operation which started on July 9, 471 dogs were killed, falling short of the targeted 500.”

Honey Bee, I also looked in the yellow pages (and blue hippo and cuti) but couldn’t find any textile shops called ‘one store’ so I didn’t bother answering.

As for one of your other questions:

When I feel the time is right and your staying by my side
And the love you give to me makes my heart beat
When my fantasy fly away but my feelings make me stay
I see the fire in your eyes, it makes my heart beat

Do it, we’ll still do it night and day
You’re my all time lover
Do it, we’ll still do it anyway
Like there is no other

Touch by touch, you’re my all time lover
Skin to skin, come undone my cover

When my heart full of love it makes me a turtle in dove
Love the game that we play night and day
When our love is clear and bright it’s our way to see the light
There’s a fire in our heart night and day

Do it, we’ll still do it night and day
You’re my all time lover
Do it, we’ll still do it anyway
Like there is no other

Touch by touch, your my all time lover
Skin to skin, come undone my cover

Do it, we’ll still do it night and day
You’re my all time lover
Do it, we’ll still do it anyway
Like there is no other

Touch by touch, you’re my all time lover
Skin to skin, come undone my covers

Do it, we’ll still do it night and day
You’re my all time lover
Do it, we’ll still do it anyway
Like there is no other

Touch by touch, your my all time lover
Skin to skin, come undone my cover.

Edit:
Honey Bee, yep, below is the website I found the lyrics

I am having Sabah work pass, which valid up to Oct 2013.?

In my visa mentions that “permitted to enter and remain in Sabah”. My question is can I go for travel purpose to Kuala Lumpur and Labuan with this visa?

Susan asks…

Where is the most beautiful place that you have been in Malaysia, and how many state have you been to?

i have been to Penang,Selangor, WP(Labuan, Kuala Lumpur) Sarawak and Sabah
For me it would be at Simpang Mengayau Kudat Sabah 3 hours 15 minute drive from Kota Kinabalu

Labuan Boy’s answers:

The view from the N-S highway as you begin to descend the hill travelling south, having exited the tunnel, which affords a fabulous panorama of Ipoh, especially on a clear day, is really spectacular. Only occasionally have I been able to really take it in, as most times I have been driving. On the way up (i.e. Going north) there is a viewing area, but I never seem to make time to pull in. Must do that one day.
(And I have been to every state in Malaysia, as well as the Federal Territories).

Of course, even though I have visited every state, I have not visited every kampong, and I’m sure there are thousands of places to which I have never been, which I would find beautiful.
There are places which are not typically regarded as beauty spots which I find attractive. For instance the view of Sungei Muar as you cross Sultan Ismail Jambatan always please me.

Paul asks…

Why in Malaysia,many people like to say “Why like that ah” or “We don’t have already”.?

What actually have we learned from our English teachers.

My aunt who work as a Primary teacher in Labuan told me that, there is one teacher who taught Math in that school.She told me that this teacher,when she taught her students Math she will say 2-1 as two push one,instead of two minus one.

There also one teacher who told one of his student in the class,that he saw his brother passed away,but what he meant is that i saw your brother walk pass me

Labuan Boy’s answers:

FYI: it’s not only in Malaysia that you would hear phrases like that. I’m currently in Middle East and I also hear those sentences here and many more and some are even worse to hear… “What to do?”
.
Even though “english” is the universal language, still many countries don’t speak the language. They are patriotic to their own language. Take China for example. You will see in TV, internet or any media that when they attend world summit, conferences and even beauty pageant, they have interpreter. Most of these are learning english mostly when they have the chance to interact with english speaking person wherein mostly they got not accurate or correct grammar.

IS this a stupid thing to do for Sabah trip?

I am travelling from KL to KK on the 30/10/07 till 4/11/07
Staying at the Hyatt. That is 4 and 1/2 days at KK… should be enought to visit the major destinay right?
Then travel from KK to Labuan to relax for 4/11/07 till 7/11/07.
Staying at either Sheraton or Waterfront?
Do anyone know which one is worth the money to stay ?

2 Adults and one child….

Labuan Boy’s answers:

If you are going to spend a few more days, stay longer at KK because Labuan got not much to do and you can enjoy a much more relaxing holidays with more choices in KK.

Try Kinabalu National Park (mt. Kinabalu), try Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (off shore Islands), try the museum, try the sunday market at Gaya Street, try the handicraft market opposite Le Meridian Hotel, try the seafoods, etc.

Sheraton is my choice in Labuan, their quality of service is always guaranteed.

Laura asks…

kemerdekaan labuan melalui pembetulan malaysia?

Labuan Boy’s answers:

Labuan tidak akan merdeka walapun Malaysia dibetulkan kerana kemerdekaan Labuan akan mendapat bantahan keras bukan sahaja dari kerajaan Malaysia malahan kerajaan dan rakyat Sabah. Ini kerana Labuan sepatutnya kembali kepada Sabah sebagai tuan punya asal pulau tersebut dan bukannya merdeka sebagai negara sendiri.

Jikalau keajaiban berlaku dan Labuan dilepaskan dari Malaysia, penanya patut maklum tentang masalah lain, Filipina. Seperti yang semua tahu, Filipina belum menggugurkan tuntutan mereka ke atas seluruh Sabah termasuk Labuan. Oleh itu, kemerdekaan Labuan akan mengundang masalah tuntutan kedaulatan daripada Filipina.

Labuan juga tidak mempunyai sumber manusia berkemahiran dan sumber asli yang cukup untuk Labuan ditadbir secara bebas. Oleh itu, mungkin Labuan akan menghadapi masalah kemiskinan yang sama dengan Timor Leste jika Labuan tiada sumber pendapatan alternatif. Sekian sahaja karangan saya untuk hari ini.

Semoga jawapan saya membantu walaupun saya tidak faham soalan penanya.

Chris asks…

What Prisoner of War camp were soldiers from Britain in Labuan from?

I am wanting to find out some information on the Labuan War Cemetery. My great-grandad unfortunately was captured by the Japanse and placed in a POW camp, in which he survived the whole time in there but died due to being given too much food after the camp he was in was liberated. I have searched the internet to find a possible POW but have had no leads. I’m really interested in finding out more information, as I have studied a lot about POW and have been to several in Europe but now I want to find out all about the conditions and whereabouts my great grandad was.

We have all over information but for some reason the records we were given don’t tell of the POW he was in. If anyone could suggest some possible leads that would be amazing.

Is it possible to convert my tourist visa to work permit after company formation in Labuan?

Hello! Please i would like to ask if i can convert my tourist visa to a work permit if i formed my company in Malaysia, Labuan.

Legally speaking, i can stay in Malaysia for 30 days without a visa but i am wondering if can convert my current state from “visitor” to “work permit” provided that i formed a company legally in Labuan. In other words, i would like to know if the Malaysian government allows the change of status of visa or not. I am planning to start the procedure of company formation procedure from there and converting my visa to work permit legally while being there.

Thanks in advance for your help. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Labuan Boy’s answers:

Labuan is in Sarwak, East Malaysia/Malaysian Borneo. So you need to get in touch with the local immigration office in Sarawak to request details. But you may have to complete a lot of formalities such as paying the stamp duty etc in order to get the permit process moving. A long term business visa maybe more helpful for you if you are setting up your own company.

Labuan Boy’s answers:

Firstly long distance relationship is really base on trust and loyalty. I am sure her husband will not be unfaithful to her. So This is going to be difficult and someone have to give in. Either the husband move back to Perth or ur friend have to move to Malaysia. I know this sound crude but long distance either u miss the person more or you will forget them.

I reckon that the best option for you is to consider setting up an offshore company in Anguilla or British Virgin Islands.
