The AP system and Proton







Khazanah wants to dispose of the headache from their failed sayur project . After spending about RM150 million, they will be lucky to get back 20% or 30% of their total investment costs.



In the same way, they may dispose Proton (a RM3.29 billion company) to Nadzmi at a fraction of the company's value. That will make Proton financially viable for Nadzmi.



Then to make the business also viable, Nadzmi will ride on the AP crutches, on the Import Duties, Excise Duty and Other Taxes which inflates the prices of other imported cars in the country to survive for how many more years?



So it is us the suffering taxpayers who will be keeping Nadzmi in the money. If Khazanah sells their stake to Nadzmi at 'besi buruk' prices it is us the taxpayer who suffers the loss. It is our money that will be given to Nadzmi.



Step 1 : he will buy Proton cheap. Step 2 : he will enjoy the AP and import duty crutches. Then make an extra RM400 to RM500 million profit (Nadzmi's so called low hanging fruits) and you and me will have to pay 3 or 4 times the price for tin can cars.



Here are some numbers folks. I now have an AP in front of me. It is a real AP. Someone bought a recond car recently (UK car). The 'franchise AP' guys let us have the AP and the Customs documents. I am reading straight from the Customs Documents:



The nilai or value of the car is RM48,000.00



Import Duty RM14,000.00



Excise Duty RM65,000.00



Other Taxes Payable RM13,000.00



Subtotal RM140,000.00



Then on another page, there is a chop which says



Manifes / AP telah disemak di Pelabuhan Klang. The car dealer said this is the AP. The amount paid was RM15,500.



This makes the landed cost of the 5 year old recond car = RM140,000 + RM15,500 = RM155,500.



Please note now the first line above ie the 'Nilai or value' of the car is RM48,000. From RM48,000 the cost of the car has now ballooned to RM155,500.



The AP holder made RM15,500. The Gomen made RM92,000. (The AP holder's name is clearly written on the AP that I have in front of me. It says 'Dato Hj xxx bin Tan Sri yyy.)



Tapi nanti dulu. What about the show room selling price of the car?



The dealer sold the car for RM240,000. So the car dealer made a profit of RM85,000.00. A 5 year old car with a value of RM48,000 (in the UK) sells here for RM240,000. Bodohnya orang Malaysia.



These are all part of the low hanging fruits that will keep Nadzmi in the money - if he buys Proton.



And lets not forget the AP Kings who still own their helicopters and their villas and have personal networth's in excess of RM2.0 billion. One guy flies in an Australian music band to play live music for his dinner guests.



I heard it directly from a Dep Minister that 'the AP is designed so that our businessmen can take the money they earn from the APs & venture into other businesses, but they are not doing that'.



Bro, if I can make such easy money from APs and buy my own helicopter, build my own villa and fly in my own music band from Australia, then why the hell would I want to venture into any other business?



Here is a silly question : can anyone answer who pays for these AP Kings to make so much money, own helicopters and fly in Australian music bands? You and me folks. Kita jadi dunggu.

Ajim berasa letih. Letih sangat. Hari ni kelas full. Pagi kelas Pendidikan Islam, tengah hari tadi kelas Bahasa Mandarin baru tadi pkul sembilan dia habis kelas Fundamental Science. Pehh memang penat.

Sebab tu la Ajim benci hari isnin,  monday sickness gitu. Tapi apekan daya. Hidup sebagai pelajar memang la gitu. Penat sekarang, senang kemudian hari.

Sampai-sampai blik je terus dilemparkan beg galasnya yang sedari tadi disandangnya sepanjang hari. Dengan kemeja, tali lehar dan stokin serta seluar slack yang masih tak bersalin dia terus menghempaskan badannya ke atas tilam.

Ahh nikmat sungguh, penat2 gini terus baring. "ehh kejap2, ak kena cek facebook aku ni , td apelah si Tina tu dok post status, mcam perli2 aku je" getus Ajimtibe2 seraya bangun mengidupkan suis laptopnya.

Pintu bilik dikunci rapat. Ahh panas pulokk. Tingkap dibuka luas2 biar angin menyerbu masuk.

Rumah Ajim rumah flat tingkat atas. Setentang rumahnya ada orang menyewa jugak. Student juniornye kat kampus j…

Jerantut : Adakah faktor migrasi mempengaruhi kadar populasi ?

Bismillahitaala.

Berbicara mengenai Jerantut, sebuah bandar yang berpenduduk seramai 88037 dengan seramai 4157 orang adalah warga asing (berdasarkan bancian Jabatan Perangkaan Malaysia, boleh rujuk http://www.statistics.gov.my/portal/download_Population/files/population/04Jadual_PBT_negeri/PBT_Pahang.pdf). Daripada jumlah keseluruhan penduduk hanya 9747 orang sahaja yang berbangsa Cina. Kalau kita ke bandar Jerantut sebahagian besar perniagaan, bangunan dan perumahan adalah milik kaum Cina. Taburan Penduduk kaum Cina yang ramai dapat dilihat di Sg Jan, Sg Lekuk, taman2 perumahan sekitar Jerantut dan sekitar Pekan Damak.


Berbanding bandar lain seperti Kuantan (427515 ), Temerloh (158724), Pekan (103839), Maran (111056),  Rompin (109599), Raub (91731) dan Bentong (114397) Jerantut boleh dikira berpenduduk sedikit.  Kalau Kuantan sebagai ibu negeri tidak heranlah ramai orang di situ. Dengan status ibu negeri semua pejabat pentadbiran bertumpu disitu. Dengan ada lagi pelabuhan serta berp…

Seputar On Hiatus, Penulisan dan Menghantar Manuskrip.

Memang sudah lama saya tidak menulis di blog ini. Hampir dua tahun ianya tidak terusik langsung. Lagipun saya yakin blog ini tidaklah mempunyai pengikut pembacanya yang tetap. Kehilangan saya ini tentunya tidak dirindui orang. Ini bukanlah bermaksud saya tidak menulis terus, membenci dunia penulisan sehingga saya tidak lagi mengetik papan kekunci komputer. Tidak. Malahan saya telah memekar kemahiran saya dalam penulisan fiksyen. Mengapa fiksyen? Kerana realiti itu semakin menjemukan, merenyahkan dan memeningkan kita manusia ini. Jadi apalah salahnya memilih fiksyen untuk melarikan diri seketika daripada realiti yang menakutkan itu, bukan? Ada banyak yang hendak saya celotehkan disini. Tempoh hampir dua tahun tanpa kemaskini tentunya membuatkan saya mahu bercerita perihal yang banyak. Antaranya:
1.Penulisan Sebenarnya minat menulis saya bercambah sejak sekolah rendah lagi. Semasa saya di sekolah menengah saya banyak tulis sajak. Sekarang entah kemana perginya koleksi sajak-sajak itu. P…
