The Big Guy Is Dead.

Maybe there's more than a hundred but I have no way of knowing for sure if my guess is good enough to paint a picture of people who took big chances to strike rich only to lose everything they owned like shop house, factory, savings, marriage and their life to Black Jack, Crap Game or One-Arm Bandit. I know a couple of high-rollers who got VIP treatment whenever they are in town for a game. And I know a couple of decent looking Malays who looked for help in the supernatural before going up the casino up in the hill just so they can win big money. They win big all right but I can tell you right now that none of them is rich. A couple of them have taken to talking to themselves all night, or seeing things like KongKang Angin Mati Beragan.

Yea, the big guy is dead. The big guy who built big things on a big mountain so people can go up to have fun with the kids. And the big guy has a lot of big cruise liners too where people can gamble away and not pay taxes because they are on international waters. The big guy built a lot of things. The big guy owned a lot of palm oil plantations, power plants, factories, property outfit, and a list of companies that churn out cash. And the big guy brings in international names to entertain you. High class acts only people like the big guy can dream of bringing in.

Yea, the big guy is dead. The big guy who once said, 'Who ask you to be poor?'

Full page ads in the papers to wax the big guy. Oh what a brilliant guy the big guy is. Worked himself up to become so rich there's no way the money will ever run out. No way. And the government too is singing like a canary about the big guy. Oh what a superb entrepreneur he is. There won't be another like him.

The big guy is dead. Who asked you to be dead, big guy?

I am sure he donated a lot of money during the election and other government-related thing. That s why they are now singing like a canary.

Salam Bergen:

Yeah the Big Guy is really dead. He is sooo big that nobody can cover-up about his death.

Yeah, he made big time after migrating here.Am sure he is very deligent and intelligent working his way up that mountain and his meteoric success and getting to know all the big shots in the administration.

You see, this Big Guy was really smart. He knew to make it in Malaya and Malaysia, you need to get close to the royalties and powerful politicians. Heck, many did follow his footsteps and you can vouched the top 20 richest men/women in the country are close with some royal family and most PMs that live during their time.

The Big Guy was close to the first PM till the present one! If he didn't die a few days ago, I am sure he'll be close to the next PM too.

So the Big Guy's death taught us a few things:
1-if you can't make big in your own country, migrate. Its proven everywhere. Immigrants made it big in America,Malaysia,Indonesia,Singapore and else where. During the prophets'(saw)time, many sahabah became successful after the hijrah.

2-To make it big in your new country..get to know the right ppl. Start with the penghulu or wakil rakyat or DO or land officer or SO(survey officer) and the Disrtict office. Then get to know the local politicians and climb your way up to the post powerful person in the country. And do not forget the royalties too. Thats the passport to Big Time.

3-Be generous to the locals and your own ppl. It doesn't matter if your money is haram or not. If the locals refuse because its against their religion its okay, you know their politicians doesn't mind about the halal -haram thing. They will be willing to take the 'donations' on behalf of the locals.As for ypur own ppl, you must be extra generous. They are after all your own,right? Help them build schools, universities,community halls etc.

4-The big money is in gambling biznez. Just look at Vegas,HongKong and our very own Genting. Have they ever reported losses? Heck, no man!
So what if those religious zealots make noise about your gambling instituition? Just smile.Smile ear-to-ear. You don't have to worry about these 'tok alims'. Your friends in the administration will take care of these fanatics. Your friend will come out with something to justify your gambling house. You just need to 'donate' whatever your friends need.

5- And do not forget this. Get a prominent local guy to be on your board of directors. That'll be good for the image of your groups of companies.You, see most local ppl when the see one of their prominent person is in your company, they might think that gambling is after all okay!

Yeah,the Big Guy is dead. Many are gonna miss him Big Time.These guys will mourn for a while. But they still have other friends like the dead big guy.

I m sorry, mintak lalu Bergen...

Anon at 12.43, I think its rude to leave a comment like that and hide behind Anonymous identity.

This is his blog, he can say whatever he pleases. I hope you know that.

Kita kalau datang rumah orang, mesti tahu tata tertib. If you wish to state your view, do it outside his domain.

Jangan marah yer, saya tegur saja.

Minta laluan:

Anon 12.43: Alhamdulillah setakat ini Awang Bergen memang otok cergas dan diri rajing wat pitih. Lame doh dier merantau buak pitih.

Alhamdulillah jua ramai yg memblog ada otok cergas dan masih boleh berfikir dan tidak mengikut secara membabi buta sahaja atas apa yg berlaku atau di lapurkan di media.

Ini bukan masaalah dengki atau cemburu. Tidak ada sesiapa pun mempertikaiakan kejayaan org2 yg berjaya. Tetapi buka lah mata dan lihatlah sekeliling kita, kebanyakkan yg berjaya adalah kerana ada talian hayat dari pemimpin-pemimpin besar negara. Mereka lah yg memonopoli segala projek2 mewah negara.
Lihat di trengganu sahaja- siapa yg anjurkan Monsoon Cup? Siapa yg dapat kontrak utk pembangunan pulau duyong? Siapa yg dapat kontrak bina masjid kaca? Dan orang ini amat rapat dengan siapa?

Itu hanya contoh. Kita tidak menafikan mereka rajin bekerja dan bijak bekerja. dan mereka bijak mencari talian hayat.

Yang benar tetap benar walau di pertikaikan.
yang salah tetap salah walau di selindungkan.

Elviza: Oh yea, you can bet that the big guy donated a lot of cash. And you know it's all part of business. I reckon, like politics, everything you do in business is part of a larger scheme of things.

Mama Irma: You wanna watch your back if the gold is heavy.

Tokasid: It's his rezeki. All he gotta do is played his part and the whole thing came together neat as planned.

Anonymous 12:43: LOL, you got it all wrong, mate. Lemme me explain:

First of all, this entry isn't about 'dengki pasal dia kaya, atau ddekki hok oghang.' Nok ddekki pasal apa. Allah has ordained that during his lifetime he would be this rich and this powerful. Yes, people can say, he's smart, he worked hard and all that, tapi we know kalau takdok rezeki, kerja kuat atau cerdik macammana atau connections macammana pun tak kemana akan duduk ssitu ler.

Now, I don't think I want to waste my time to ddeki with the big guy. LOL. I'd like to ddeki with those yang berilmu dan beramal, yang banyak sedekah dan berkorban tenaga, wang ringgit dan nyawa for Islam. Dalam hal ni, it's call Ghibtah, which is ddeki tapi ddeki yang positive, which is a beautiful concept in Islam.

Dok habih lagi. LOL.

There's no kutok mengutok here, mate. Nok kutok apa lagi oghang doh kena bungkus dan simpan mmollek untuk jadi habuan ulat dan cacing tanah. Kita pun macam tu juge satu hari nanti, atau mungkin esok atau malam ni. Kalau dah ditentukan mati, mati lah kita because we've used up all the air that has been allocated to us, or has eaten all the lamb that has been reserved for us during our lifetime.

You got it all wrong, sir. LOL, yes I hope to have otok cergas by jogging 10km 4 times a week, cycling and teaching martial arts to both adults and children. And although I am not an academically inclined, I try to read as much as I can. I am reading Infidel now, the same author who penned The Caged Virgin i.e Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Muslim who doesn't have much faith in Islam anymore.

LOL, and I made a lot of money since my business deals in US dollars. No, I don't intend to be anywhere near the big guy in terms of wealth. I enjoy a quiet life, no debts, excellent credit rating, travelling, cooking and yes, blogging. LOL.

You shouldn't have written in All Caps, mate. It's kinda loud. LOL.

Okay, cukuplah sampai di sini, I'm not here to give advice. LOL. Salam, and ma'af kalau terkasar.

Elviza: Now, THAT is a lawyer in you there, ma'am. LOL.

Tokasid: Ah, Trengganu. It's a completely different Trengganu from Awang Goneng's version.

Nak Tak Nak: LOL. I'm speechless, cikgu.
