The IS Had Wanted to Kidnap PM Najib Razak


Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi revealed on Tuesday that the Islamic State had wanted to kidnap PM Najib Razak and others – but this was foiled by Malaysian security forces.
He told Parliament: "On January 30, 2015, a total of thirteen individuals associated with the Daesh militant group (ie. IS) plotted to kidnap the country's top leaders including the prime minister, home and defense ministers”.
Is that so? This is a classic example of the “syiok sendiri” syndrome. 
Get real lah! Nobody wants Najib.
Even Malaysians don't want him. If indeed, it was true, they should have taken him.  Anytime! And Malaysians would have been the happiest people in the world today!
I watched the Europa League last sixteen, first leg tie between rivals Liverpool and Manchester United early this morning! At a “mamak” restaurant at just after 4:00 AM Malaysian time.


The Reds dominated this first European meeting between the two EPL giants in a thunderous atmosphere and they successfully swept aside the Red Devils at Anfield.

Daniel Sturridge gave Liverpool a twentieth-minute lead from the spot after Memphis Depay fouled Nathaniel Clyne and then Roberto Firmino added a second from close range in the seventy-third minute to give us a good 2-0 win!
On Thursday evening, I was at the Satu Hati Toastmasters Club where their meeting theme was “Liverpool FC”! We even sang the football club's anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone" – not once but twice! [Note: The song was actually written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, who wrote it for their musical Carousel in 1945 and The Kop adopted it in the 1960s].

And yes, I was voted Best Project Speaker. It was a CC#3 speech titled "Traffic Jam". 

Earlier in the afternoon, I was at IJM in Jalan Yong Shook Lin, Petaling Jaya for another Toastmasters meeting. I was their General Evaluator.

BTW, it coincided with the "IJM English Week" – a company initiative to promote the English language.
