benefits of privatization

Course: KJM630 - Engineers in Society

Topic: The expected benefits of privatization of public utilities companies in Malaysia are technological and economic efficiency. Discuss with examples whether those benefits have been achieved.


On 1983, Malaysia was starting shown attention on privatization when prime minister launched Privatization Policy in Malaysia that also talks about role of private company in country’s development and management. Privatization is different with nationalism, which is a process of increasing government controls and involvement in economy. The basic for this, privatization is about certain government authority and investment to private sector. Based on the Malaysia Privatization Policy, there are five main objectives to be achieved which are
  • to relieve the administrative and financial burden of the government,
  • improve the effectiveness and quality of the public services,
  • encourage the spread of private entrepreneurship in the public sector,
  • division of resources,
  • contribute to the attainment of the goals set for the New Economic Policy (NEP).

Subsequently, Prime Minister Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad announced the government’s decision on a policy of privatization. He stressed the danger of the government becoming a burden to the people it serve. Thus, privatization is set in motion. After nearly three decades of doing this policy, we should be gained the expected benefits of this policy. This is easy to analyze because there are a lot of private company came out from this policy. So, in order to decrease the scope of discussion we choose to talk about public utilities only in term of technological and economic efficiency.....

10 sign you're an internet geek

10. When filling out your driver's license application you give your IP address.

9. You no longer ask prospective dates what their sign is, instead your line is "Hi, what's your URL?"

8. Instead of calling you to dinner, your spouse sends e-mail.

7. You're amazed to find out spam is a food.

6. You "ping" people to see if they're awake, "finger" them to find out how they are, and "AYT" them to make sure they're listening to you.

5. You search the Net endlessly hoping to win every silly free T-shirt contest.

4. You introduce your wife as "my lady@home.wife" and refer to your children as "client applications".

3. At social functions you introduce your husband as "my domain server".

2. After winning the office super bowl pool you blurt out, "I feel so colon-right parentheses!"

And the number one sign you are an Internet Geek:

1. Two Words: "Pizza's Here!"

Why So Serious??

Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Smile to improve your health, your stress level, and your attractiveness. See other good things about smile..

1. Smiling Makes Us Attractive
We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in.

2. Smiling Changes Our Mood
Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.

3. Smiling Is Contagious
When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

4. Smiling Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.

5. Smiling Boosts Your Immune System
Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.

6. Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure
When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?

7. Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin
Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.

8. Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger
The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don't go for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better.

9. Smiling Makes You Seem Successful
Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.

10. Smiling Helps You Stay Positive
Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.

Mocca at Laman Budaya Shah Alam

On March 18, 2009 I was attend a mini concert performed by MOCCA at Laman Budaya Shah Alam. This is the second time Mocca performed live in Malaysia. The first one was in Zouk, KL. Even I have a lot of assignment and project to be submitted, I still got arrange my time to be there. This is the first time I saw Indonesian band performing live. With the tickets is just RM25 (because I got presale price) I got to see the international band performing live!!! Actually I just got the ticket on that afternoon. Hehe. The venue is just near to the Shah Alam Lake. It was an open air area and quite beautiful place. I was going there with Lyela, Kak Zaida and Zul.

The show was started at 9pm with 2 opening bands from local. The first band is called Decma & TCHB (that could have been) from JB and the second one is called Rumi. The first band is interesting for me. Their music is nice and the best thing about them is they play with one unique instrument. I’m not sure what it is. I guess it used to be as ‘Ghazal instrument’. Hehe.

Then is time for Mocca. The crowd started move to the front and keep taking photo of them. They played a lot of song that night such as I Remember, My Only One, Happy and etc. they perform really well. For the best thing about Mocca is their vocalist. She is not just really good in singing but also has an interesting personality and excellent in interaction with audience. One more things, she is quite funny. Hehe. Mostly she speak in Indonesian language but sometime she trying to speak in Malay but really funny because she was always ‘pusing (in Malay-pening)’ about the Malay language. Haha. Hmm… overall for me they have had a really good performance and the crowd is really enjoyed by their performance. Credits for Mocca, the music mayor for Bandung. Adios!!

Decma & TCHB

Maulidur Rasul

setiap tahun hijrah, tanggal 12 rabiul awal kita akan menyambut maulidur rasul sempena kelahiran junjungan besar kita nabi muhammad s.a.w. banyak organisasi akan menyambut hari mulia ni dengan perarakan selawat. diikuti dengan ceramah agama dan makan2. terutama sekali sekolah. setiap tahun pasti akan sambut dengan meriah.

masa sekolah dulu bila sampai je time nak buat majlis ni, cikgu2 akan cari aku. diorang akan suruh aku buat banner atau kain rentang untuk digunakan masa perarakan. diorang nak tulis jawi. kalau tempah kat luar mahal. so, diorang boleh cut cost kalau mintak tolong aku. cikgu sekolah agama mesti bayar kat aku dengan harga yang lumayan. tp cikgu sekolah menengah kedekut sikit, langsung xbagi pape. ikhlas jela. hehe.. biasanya diorang provide kain putih, berus colour dan dye(macam cat untuk colour kat kain). dengan kata lain kalau diorang bayar tu semuanya masuk poket la. time2 ni dapatla income lebih sikit. murah rezeki. tapi sekarang sudah berlalu.

selamat menyambut maulidur rasul...

teka teki

1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years.

Which room is safest for him?

2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for Over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go
out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out.

Try to do so without any coaching!




1. The third. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.

2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it and hung it up to dry.

3. Charcoal

4. Sure you can: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow!

5. The letter "e," which is the most common letter in the English language, does not appear once in the long paragraph

haha...isu ni tgh hangat di pasaran. walaupun dah bertahun2 bende ni dilaksanakan, tp masih ramai yg menyuarakan pendapat masing2. ade setuju n ade yg tak. n tak kurang juga yg dh pedih2 mata mempertahankan falsafah mereka...haha... malaysia boleh!!!

so, kite discuss pd beberapa sudut. pd pendapat aku la. study math n science dlm english memang ade pro n contra. biase la tu kan...mana ade hal yg baik je. lg2 zaman skang ni. tp nak buat camne. go with the flow jela...huhu..

kita mulakan dengan advantage ok..firstly, dgn adenya bende ni bangsa malaysia akan terus bersaing dari segi sains n technology. maklumla kan banyak bahan bacaan dalam english. so, segala term pasal teknologi, student kite dah biase. xpayah la nk bukak2 kamus byk2 kali..hehe... lagi satu, rakyat malaysia yg akan datang akan ade advantage dlm nak mengharungi dunia global. mereka akan mempunyai kebolehan bertutur dan menulis dlm byk bahasa. yela, skrg ni nak mintak keje pun kene interview in english. communication kantoi jgn harapla nak dapat keje best. nak wat camne...globalisasi nyer penangan..huhu... hmmm...biler dah expert bahasa luar ni, bolehla keje kat luar negara nanti. pastu balik malaysia bwk ilmu n technology. sape yg untung??malaysia gak kan...cepat sikit jd negara maju...

disadvantage lak kepada student yg tak mahir bahasa inggeris. especially yg kat luar bandar. yg parent tak pernah nak cakap english kat umah. biler ade keje sekolah, xtau nak tanye sape. kalau anak cikgu xpela kot. abang2 n kakak2 lak dah sambung belajar or keje kat bandar. budak2..biasalakan..biler dah xboleh buat, mula la give up n then pergi sambung main. pastu camne nak pandai??? adakah sebab bahasa, bdk2 yg ade potensi nak pergi jauh akan ketinggalan??? harap2 ade la kaedah mengatasi masalah ini. anak2 kecil inilah yg akan mengubah nasib keluarga mereka. (hehe..ayat xboleh blah...)

haa...mengikut experience aku study kat uitm yg fully english ni, bukan senang nak belajar dalam english ni. faham n hafal boleh la. kalau nak hayati....kene hari2 hadap buku bolehla kot. almaklumla...lidah melayu...ari2 cakap melayu...hehe tp..kalau belajar dlm bahasa melayu rasanye lg la susah. sume term nk kene ubah. technology berkembang pesat. tp mostly publish in english. xkirela buku, journal, magazine. so, nak x nak kalau dah study engineering tu pandai2la bawak diri...hehe

so, kesimpulannya, fikir2 la sendiri...korang dipihak yg mane...pape pun yg penting. sekali, 'usaha tangga kejayaan'...kalau xcukup usaha sikit, usaha byk2...n jgn lupe tawakal...gud luck!!!=)

ps: kalau ade pendapat, boleh la drop korg nyer komen kat bwh ni...thanks..adios..
