KUALA LUMPUR: Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim) menarik balik sijil pengesahan halal yang diberikan kepada syarikat Dindings Poultry Processing Sdn Bhd berikutan proses penyembelihan ayam di kilangnya meragukan.

Difahamkan antara kesalahan dikesan Jakim iaitu sesetengah ayam disembelih dua kali selepas penyembelihan pertama tidak sempurna dan ada ayam sudah mati sebelum disembelih.

Pengumuman berhubung penarikan balik sijil itu disiarkan dalam laman web Jakim melalui www.halaljakim.gov.my, bertarikh 3 Januari lalu.

Laman web itu yang menjadi rujukan rasmi sijil halal Jakim menjelaskan Sijil Pengesahan Halal Jakim bagi Syarikat Ayam Dindings Poultry Processing Sdn Bhd ditarik balik sehingga diberitahu kelak.

Pengarah Bahagian Kajian Makanan dan Barangan Gunaan Islam Jakim, Che Hassan Fahmi Che Mamat yang dihubungi Harian Metro, petang semalam, mengesahkan mengenai tindakan Jakim itu.

Menurutnya, setiap pemegang sijil halal bertanggungjawab ke atas sebarang penyalahgunaan syarat ditetapkan Jakim.

Maybank2u.com Charges

I received a forwarded Yahoo! message just now:

“Maybank telah mengenakan cas RM0.50 melalui Internet banking Maybank2u.com bagi setaip penghantaran wang (transfer fund) walhal sebelum ni dia orang tak cas.. mana bleh cam ni.. ini kemungkinan besar pihak dia orang nak kaut keuntungan berlebihan.. nampaknya maybank dah mula menekan customer… forward kat kawan-kawan.. kita hantar memorandum macam dulu..

Translation: “Maybank is charging RM0.50 for transfers via the Internet Banking channel. They didn’t charge before. How can they do this? Most probably they want to get extra revenues… Maybank is starting to press customers… let’s send a memorandum like before…”

I’m not sure whether this claim is true and am too lazy to go check at Maybank2u site. Well, I’m a customer as well and of course I wouldn’t like for prices to be increased or new charges introduced into the system. But thinking of the convenience they have offered, RM0.50 per transfer is little. Unless you live next to a Maybank branch, or you go to the bank riding a bicycle, it will cost you far more than RM0.50 for fuel (plus parking where applicable). Even if you ride a bicycle, your energy would be used.

I won’t complain unless Maybank starts to charge by percentage or more than RM1.00 per transaction. Customer service sucks anyway in most Malaysian institutions, so having to use your PC to do banking is actually a blessing. 😉

Banks are businesses, they look for ways to make more money. Can we blame them?

Cats In The Cradle

Not really my favorite song, but the meaning’s deep and I have been listening to this song since I was a kid… Many artists took this song, the one I occasionally listen to is performed by Ugly Kid Joe

Cats In The Cradle

My child arrived just the other day
Came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
He was talking before I knew It
And as he grew
He said, “I’m gonna be like you, Dad you know I’m gonna be like you”

And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin’ home son I don’t know when, We’ll get together then
You know we’ll have a good time then.

My son turned ten just the other day
He said “thanks for the ball dad, come on lets play can you teach me to throw?”
I said “Not today, I’ve got alot to do”
He said “Thats okay”
He walked away and he smiled and he said
“you know I’m gonna be like you, dad you know I’m gonna be like you….”

And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin’ home son I don’t know when, We’ll get together then
You know we’ll have a good time then.

He came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
“Son I’m proud of you, can you sit for a while?”
He shook his head, and he said with a smile
“What I’m feeling like dad, is to borrow the car keys. See you later, can I have them please?”

And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin’ home son I don’t know when, We’ll get together then
You know we’ll have a good time then.

I’ve long since retired, my son has moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said “I’d like to see you if you dont mind”
He said “I’d love to dad If I could find the time.
You see my new jobs a hassle, and the kids have the flu.
But it’s sure nice talking to you, dad, it’s been sure nice talking to you……..”
And as he hung up the phone It had occured to me
He’d grown up just like me, my boy, was just like me…………..

And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin’ home son I don’t know when, We’ll get together then
You know we’ll have a good time then.

Damaged Tire

Damaged Tire

This is what my front left tire looked like. The damaged area is the inner part. Luckily we went into a very big pothole on the way from Shah Alam yesterday, and it made me worry so much and took a trip to the workshop.

I’d recommend the workshop (I think the name is Maystorm, in Putra Permai near the Police Station) as the people there are friendly. Plus, they did a very good job on my car alignment 🙂

There goes RM300.00++, but after all it is for safety. Next, changes are also required for the rear tires…
