Singapore walking on tight rope as MAS probes Najib

It was reported that the MAS had queried 40 financial institutions in Singapore on the flow of funds involving 1MDB. Such an action coming out at the time is politically very sensitive given the intimate and good relations between Najib and Hsien Loong.  The cordial relations between the two PM could be described as the best between the two states and it is very dicey to have this relationship rattled by such an investigation.
The big question is how the relationship between the two PM and the two states be affected as a result of this happening. Would Najib’s feather be so ruffled that the goodwill turns sour and leading to obstacles surfacing again?

As a financial hub and the complex relations with the western financial system and govts, Singapore is in a very tricky situation, like balls caught in a vice, to do or not to do. Where is the pressure coming from for Singapore to take such a high profile investigation? One can understand why Switzerland too could not pretend to be neutral and apolitical in this 1MDB story. Switzerland too must be under tremendous pressure to open up an investigation and undermined its safe haven for rogue funds image. Nothing else is safe in Switzerland henceforth and rogues wanting to park their wealth in that little European financial hub would have to think very hard after this episode.

Singapore has a better image in being a better managed and transparent system in the model of New York and London.  Conducting such an investigation when all the worms are crawling all over the place is inevitable. Tough luck for Najib for offending the Empire.  Now he would have to pay a heavy price when the Emperor issued his edict and no countries would dare to defy the order if they want to remain as the good boys of the Emperor, at least not countries that are receiving blessings from the Emperor.

Najib would now have to fight his own solitary battle or go begging the Emperor for mercy. In what way had Najib offended the Emperor for the latter to go after his blood and his Premiership?

How long would Singapore and Malaysia’s honeymoon last? Would it survive this 1MDB crisis?


One probable solution for Najib to get all the investigation against him off his back is to acquire a few American warships and submarines. Then he can appoint his Defence Minister as the Commander of his Pacific Ocean Fleet and push China out of the South China Sea. This would please the Emperor and all his 1MDB problem will disappear in mid air. He may be rewarded with another round of golf with Obama. But he needs to do this fast as the new President Trump would not be so friendly and it would be too late.

Relationship between the two PM and the two states will not be affected lah, once Najib is no more PM. And my gut feeling is that Najib will be no more PM before their next GE due in 2018.

The Man and his wife are born to be great.

For no rhyme or reason, money flows to them.
It was even reported that their children were behaving like princelings.

Malaysians are enjoying the Blessings of the Unexplainable. They need not work for wealth.
Money just flow to their Rulers and their Country.

What's the Charms of PM Najib and his Wife?
They themselves do not quite know why money flew into them; they are as bewildered as anyone else.

Now even Najib begs the "emperor",it may be too late. If the other side insist to push the "reset" button to install a pro US regime, what can Najib do unless he have "more" money or offer a better deal?

Money, Money, Money....it is all about money....

If and whence Mahathir Faction replaces Najib, the New Regime may NOT neccessarily be a Pro US Regime.

Mahathir is a welknown Pro East Political Leader.
His Pto East Policy whence he was the PM was in some ways guided by his Religious Belief and me surmises that he holds it close to his heart.

Anyway, if Indonesia becomes a US Ally, it shall have far more reaching implication, not neccessarily negative.

Malaysians ate blessed and they wont lean too much to anybody. They have more than sufficient to enjoy life of plenty and most of them ate wise to the Fact.

Oh shucks...that's what happens when you sleep with shit-bags....some of the smell will rub off on you.

There is no way Singapore will allow its reputation for a financial hub to smell like shit.

Where's that Glenn Knight fella? Is he still breathing?

Fear not, Fear not.


Nasib is safe. Sin MAS knows how to wayang. See the Indonesian haze every year and happening soon.

This is in retaliation to Sinkie govt not in cooperation with their request for providing documents pertaining to their citizens monies laundering.

See how Najib swiftly settled the KTM rail issue. The HSR project coming up.

See how cordial and friendly terms with Looney Loong. Retreats holidays coming up.

You think sinkie govt will sabo him for this minir hiccup??

» Sin MAS knows how to wayang. «

All Asians are wayang kings. Ang mohs tend to be emotionally honest. They get directly to the point if they are slighted. They will in no uncertain terms tell you how they feel, tell you how fucked you are, smack you a few times and then just get on with their lives, even inviting you to have a beer if they run into you next week. They tend not to hold grudges. Asians on the other hand have turned "grudge holding" into a cultural ART which can last generations.

Generally speaking, Asians do not have "emotional honesty". They will wayang, waste time and make the the situation WORSE by masking their true feelings.

However...in this case, I don't think MAS is "wayanging". They're looking for someone to throw under the bus, cover their own arses and preserve Singapore's pure-as-the-driven-snow reputation as a finance hub.

KTM had their land in Singapore for about 80 years. The agreement between Singapore and Malaysia over KTM land was not "swift". These fuckers have been going back and forth since 1990. Najib just happened to be the fucker in charge when the deal finally closed...successfully. Come hell or high water, Singapore was going to get back her land. It seems, that come hell or high water, Najib was going to "get his".

High Speed Rail also, is more a "sign of the times" than anything else. KTM's trains---if you've ever been on one recently (I'm a regular user)---are just a national embarrassment i.e.: they are SHIT. Outdated, rickety, smelly, dirty pieces of SHIT.

You can also safely bet that the Indon govt has been given details of its tax-dodging citizens...probably through diplomatic back-channels. Singapore's banking sector can't be seen to publicly share information with foreign govts which will incriminate that cuntry's rich citizens because such a public move is bad for business, and will scare off other rich assholes who use Singapore to hide their loot.

» See how cordial and friendly terms with Looney Loong. Retreats holidays coming up. «

Aiyah uncle. Of course lah. Politics and diplomacy go hand in hand. The only politician today who is forgiven for behaving like a gangster is Vlad Putin. All the rest have to appear to be cordial, friendly and diplomatic. Especially in Asia---home of wayang kings and queens, along with their princes and princess progeny. Cannot, under any circumstances, make the other party LOSE FACE, and at all times you yourself too cannot lose face.

Najib has proven himself to be a master at dodging bullets. IMO, in the end everyone will come out smelling of roses. Marina 1 and DUO will open next year, and there'll be big celebration and bullshit speeches on how great relations are between Singapore and Malaysia blah blah blahdy blah blah...

Wayang never sleeps.

Speaking from experience? How many times have you been slapped by the angmohs? You never slap back, you always in the wrong? kongcum, cum cum... let me slap you so that you can respect me as emotionally honest.

»Speaking from experience? «

Yes, of course. I've lived in various western societies (Australia primarily) for 2/3rds of my life.

» How many times have you been slapped by the angmohs? «

Uncountable. My 2 ex-wives are white gals, one of Russian-German descent, the other of Irish-Italian descent. Both manifested a type of crazy you think only existed in the movies. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Both had problems with me fucking other women, especially on business trips to Asia...go figure. My fault. I got caught. Many times. 😱

As for ang moh guys, I've had maybe 2 fights in all this time. No slaps. Just punches, grappling maybe a gun or knife pulled in anger...then back slapping and drinking later---i.e. "peace making".

I get on FAMOUSLY with most ang moh guys because I find common ground---i.e.: we all like to bang Asian chicks, get high and make obscene amounts of money (in the good old days), drive flash cars, shoot guns, crack racist jokes and play pranks on each other (male bonding).

When my whitey mates come to Singapore, I take them to Geylang where the drop-dead gorgeous Asian hookers will lick their arseholes (a secret of Geylang which Singapore Tourist Board has yet to sell to the world) and "tama" them (2 girls at once). This increases my "social value" to the point my ang moh mates have my number on speed-dial. 😎

» let me slap you so that you can respect me as emotionally honest.«

Oh please lah....improve on your own shitty, low-frequency life first before you start dreaming dreams you have no hope of achieving. Get busy, soon, I hope. Tick-tock motherfucker. Your shitty life is passing you by 😹

Na-Sip is in his last ditch.

Now he is making use of MARA to support his alleged corrupted money-sipping endeavours,
which is selfish to the core, by saying that UMNO gave birth to MARA
and if UMNO falls, MARA will fall and millions of Malays will suffer.

It was Maha-dear who started MARA. It was Maha-dear's UMNO that supported the Malays way back in 1969, when published his book 'The Malay Dilemma'. Na-Sip was then only a young happy-go-lucky Army Officer screwing around, being protected by his father Tun Ra-Suck's umbrella.

Now he tries to discredit and bring down Maha-dear by making use of Maha-deer's own credit in the past. What a big joke!

He has forgotten that it was Maha-dear who handpicked and hen-pecked him to become the PM
to take over Ab-Dollar Bad-Are-We.

A dog that bites the hands of the Master who fed him must be either suffering from Rabies or
a very ungrateful dog, which has to be put to sleep or locked up permanently, is it not?

It is really politically unbelievable that being the Power House that he is, he has NOT been
able to send feelers and tentacles to Maha-dear to settle the ISSUE behind closed doors amicably???

It is all about MONEY only, is it not? Why at logger-head with the ISSUE on Money?
Greed, Greedy and Greedier, Greediest?

May be the Spirit of the Mongolian Girl is so strong that she wants to make sure that
Revenge and Vengence can be seen by the Whole World in the Present Time,
instead of at a Future Time Frame when everything is forgotten and erased?
