Samy’s Cheap Wedding Greetings

Image Hosted by

by Martin Jalleh

Samy had proudly sent to Jeanne and Badawi,
A congratulatory statement in perfect poetry,
So spellbound was Bolehland by his originality.

But damn, a sharp reader of Malaysiakini
Spotted Samy’s true and hidden capability
For from two poems, the Minister did copy.

As shame no longer exists in our country
Slowly but surely, silently, subtly and slyly
Samy sends in his handy press secretary.

“Blame not my master,” said he slavishly
“But blame rather on my lapse of memory.
“The authors I have left out inadvertently!”

Our sympathies, dear Jeanne and Badawi
For being treated to Samy’s cheap publicity
and pathetic excuses of his press secretary.

In light of government’s leaking credibility
Samy should stay focused on his Ministry
And save plagarised poems only for MIC.

    An Honorary Doctorate in Plagiarism ie PhD(Plagiarism) from UM awaits our dear JKR Minister for his great copycat poetry. We have to address him as “Loktor” from now on….

    “Hollywood -> Bollywood –> and now Bolehwood” – pulau_sibu

    I wont recomment a “Bolehwood” cause it’s NOT RECOGNIZED outside of BolehLand.

    Bolehwood? what graceful words… I would rather call it “deadwood”

  7. #7 by ihavesomethingtosay on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 12:54 pm

    this Martin Jalleh, wow, what a cool poem, I just can’t stop laughing.

    Pulau_Sibu, Rayden & Ahkok1982, might I suggest “BODOHWOOD” since as we;ve all been afflicted and affected by our elected ministers’ stupidity?

    sometimes i just wonder how thick-skinned our dear Samy can be… if i were his wife or children, i would be in great shame meeting up people — imagine how others will look at ur hubby or father! A sly fox!

  9. #9 by grace on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 1:28 pm

    Our ministers have evolved over the years to develop skin that is thicker than hippopothamus. To call them tak malu is no more effective because they know that they belong to the lowest class of society.
    Some are outright corrupt, still can claim to be innocent.
    Some are branded Liars publicly, buat tak tau
    Now a proven copy cat, still have the cheek to talk nonsense.

    Aiya, give us another 50 years, we would still be as we are or maybe worse!!!

    SOrry to disappoint u but when his wife and kids lookat him all they can see is the toll gates cashing in! $$$$$$$ Kachiinnggg!!!!

    His press secretary has been amply rewarded and will be doubly rewarded. Blind loyalty pays. Eat your hearts out!

  12. #12 by Cinnamon on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 1:49 pm

    The truth is that Samy Velu instructed his press secretary Mr S (ass) to write the poem. Samy Velu trusted this guy and claimed that as his poem.. hahahah

    Mr Ass don’t have talent for this art, and he thought he is too smart to plagarise from 2 poems.

    Caught with pants down, shame on you Mr Ass.

  13. #13 by united07 on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 2:25 pm

    What’s new?

    Samy even have a permanent column on Tamil Nesan every Sunday to showcase his poetry skills!

    It’s killing. Please stop Samy…please.

    If some of our Ministers have any shame, pride and dignity, they would not last this long in their positions and environment.

    They do not care of what the ordinary people with no power, authority and influence said about them.

  16. #16 by sotong on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 3:59 pm

    It is sad that our country leader/s allow undesirable and unsuitable characters to influence the people and the direction of the country.

  17. #17 by grace on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 4:31 pm

    If Pak lah wants to establish a cabinet of first world mentality, I believe all of them,including himself, have to get lost!!!
    Sotong, don’t talk about dignity and pride to our BN members. Simply those words are never present in their vocabulary. They have none of that!!

  18. #18 by Jimm on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 4:39 pm

    We are famous for pirated version of everything…
    It’s okay and normal to hear of one fellow Malaysian VVIP to claim such statements. Afterall, we done claimed that we designed our own car model in the past only to know later that it’s actually some old design from some car manufacturer in another country.
    Malaysia .. SEMUA Boleh ..lah.

  19. #19 by moong cha cha II on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 4:52 pm

    its the heart that counts.

    tell me who else went to cut, modify and paste and claimed that as his poems, thus deceiving te PM, Puan PM and the public. that takes effort and time.

    put in an advertisement. that takes money.

  20. #20 by Utopia on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 5:30 pm


    He has successfully made himself the most foolish longest serving minister in the world. Malaysia BOLEH in producing incapable leaders but at least they made everyone laughs with their incapability!

  21. #21 by smeagroo on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 6:00 pm

    Samy Simpson thot when he copied the poem and translate it into Tamil no one would know. It is a simple job isnt it? BUt sorry la, he had to ride on his luck and put the English version in also. Now all bocor and yes luckily god saved him from his acts by wiping out his MIC office with a flash flood.

  22. #22 by undergrad2 on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 6:13 pm

    Ordinary Malaysians are being made to read the shit! So I’d say Samy Vellu continues to do things and get away with it. Who has the last laugh??

  23. #23 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 8:15 pm

    Samy wanted [deleted] so much that he did not care whether people know he plagiarized or not. [deleted] He is a fake but he knows there are still people who surround him and adore him, and he is still the Indian king having a big control on our lives and making big buck out of us. And, he is still around as a minister while many others had gone.

    Quote ” The heading is ” Novelist Jonathan Lethem, Pondering the Good Side to Plagiarism “. Bad plagiarism, Lethem believes, is somethng we know when we see it. It doesn’t add value by transforming the borrowed material into something new. It is deceptive, in that it refuses to acknowledge its influences. And good plagiarism ? Think of Shakespeare’s borrowing from Ovid, he says, which helped produced ” Romeo and Juliet, ” and the subsequent borrowing by Leonard Berstein that produced ” West Side Story “. Unquote

    Putting it simply. ACKNOWLEGE that person from whom we get the ideas from. So if you have plagiarised, do yourself a favour and tell people the truth. Do not go around telling people that you did not plagiarised. That is why UNIVERSITY students MUST write up their bibliography and their references and all the acknowledgements. Without the readied materials, you think you can do such a great job in obtaining A +++ in your thesis or dissertation which earns you a first class honours ?

    Does P.M. read a lot of poems written by the rightful authors ?

  26. #26 by dawsheng on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 10:02 pm

    It is not easy to be an Indian leader judging by what the made in Bollywood. Samy had played an important role of where the Indian community in Malaysia fair today, like the Chinese they seems to be contented with what they achieved, the Chinese have their crown MCA and the Indians have the MIC. But these are political parties the older generation supports which makes our country what it is today, as you can see the result is disastrous. Samy Vellu is the remnant of what is soon going to be history if not by his own initiative then let nature deal with him, how long could he possibly last?

  27. #27 by PureMalaysian on Wednesday, 13 June 2007 - 10:05 pm

    There are several nice poems created by Keris Silau at Malaysia Today, amongst those…

    “Bocor Lagi

    by Keris Silau – Malaysia Today

    Bocor teruk kata Samy
    Wiring lama kata Ramli
    Bangunan tua kata Nazri
    Najib said it’s PWD

    Semua ada alasan sendiri
    But where you all spent the money?
    RM90 juta untuk cantikkan lobby
    So that it looks luxury

    Nice d¨¦cor and nice settee
    But now you kena letak baldi
    Bocor teruk when it rains heavily
    MP yang busuk pun boleh mandi

    The floor is wet and slippery
    The luxury lobby now looks untidy
    Inilah dia third class mentality
    Luar cantik tapi dalam very shoddy

    Structure work should get priority
    And now whose responsibility

    JKR or Parliament Committee
    While you all gaduh sama sendiri

    Rakyat want an answer immediately
    Otherwise kita tak bagi you undi
    Sebab you spent money unnecessarily
    You know it is taxpayers’ money
    So please spend the money wisely.”

    Enjoyed reading the poems here
    So sad Malaysia down one more Tier
    Human trafficking there and here
    BN rule hopefully the end is near!

    This is a land of pirates. We sell pirated CDs, send pirated poems, and we had a one eye Jack who looks like a pirate or maybe is already a Pirate and also pirated Architectural degree.

  31. #31 by art-upon-mu on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 3:24 am

    Samy O Samy, the icon of Indians is just a super con. Life must go on and Samy will continue to speak, with saliva flying everywhere, with great confidence about his enormous and you-owe-me contributions to our national development. No shame, no red face, but with a halo, almost a saint.

  32. #32 by Godamn Singh on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 4:35 am

    “Someone has been very naughty ;-) but strangely, malaysiakini didn’t report this, though the Star Online has.

    It seems that someone had doctored photographs showing several Perak DAP leaders as if they were engaged in sexual acts. Obviously the pornographic photos were mischievously achieved by superimposing the faces of DAP leaders like Fong Po Kuan (Batu Gajah MP), Ngeh Koo Ham (Sitiawan MLA), Nga Kor Ming (Pantai Remis MLA) and Keong Meng Sing (Menglembu MLA) on those of actual tiger men and/or tigress women.

    That person also sent those dodgy photos to the Chinese press which are well known for their proclivity towards reporting and publishing juicy scandals. However, as I don’t read Chinese newspapers myself, it’s still not known whether they did publish the pornographic images.

    Needless to say, DAP members have not been at all impressed by the dodgy artistic creativity.

    Let’s leave out the more detailed description of the photos and the DAP’s call to the police to trace the trouble maker (who, because the DAP has been the victim, is not expected to move with lightning speed).

    Frankly, if anyone had asked, I would have told him/her that DAP members (at least those real dedicated ones) won’t indulge in such salacious acts. They aren’t the people with that kind of attitude or inclination.

    I even suspect that one of the criteria for joining the DAP, or more exactly, to become a DAP leader, would be for one to be completely serious, minus humour, or the sort of easy humour that you and I would normally possess.

    When one is without humour, it would usually be more likely that one would be a prude as well – characteristics that may well resemble those of early fundamentalist Protestant values.

    As I had once remarked when the DAP ‘retreated’ recently to Cameron Highlands for their strategic planning (for the next general election) they were unlikely to be playing mahjong or pa’ kau. Yes, they are like that.

    I imagine everyone there was dead serious, and the only thrill or excitement they might have been driven to would probably be, just as a KTemoc imagined example ;-), when they discovered a missing comma on the text of the distributed agenda.

    Again I am imagining of course – but probably one member would secretly think of that typo: “Scandalous, how could such an error occur. Oh dear, I can’t wait to tell my wife this juicy bit.”

    Another would, I suppose, valiantly restrain his smirk but daringly pontificate silently to himself: “Good lord, what the world has become. I must speak to the Secretary General immediately after this, or shall I call for a motion for censure against the party’s typist for such an unmitigated error.”

    No doubt he agonised long over that decision (to censure the typist) ;-)

    And undoubtedly, the party top leaders would be squirming, red faced, at such an unthinkable drastic mistake.

    Yeah, hardly the type to be indulging in blissful grunts, moans and various yoga-ish postures.

    I know I shouldn’t but I just wonder (rather wildly, I admit – KTemoc has a vivid imagination) how such people, well, those who are married ones of course, would approach their spouses for matrimonial conjugation?

    Applications submitted in triplicates with at least 3 days notice? With no typos please!

    I heard one special guest to the DAP strategic planning workshop in Cameron highlands had entreated the DAP leaders to ‘lighten up’ a wee bit, to smile a little, even to take up some sports, like say, tennis or horse-riding, or maybe read Shakespeare because there’s lots of humour in Shakespeare – stuff like ‘Brutus, Brutus, wherefore art thou’ ;-) and ‘Et tu, Romeo’ – imagine the Grand Ole Man saying that, or would he be saying instead: “Out, damn’d spot! out, I say”?

    Then there is of course that famous Shakespearean advice in his Henry VI: ‘Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all.’

    Yes, I think the DAP leaders should take up his advice, though not on the last quotation of ‘Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all’. That’s reserved for a special someone.

    And I suppose Lim KS or Lim GE would refuse the suggestion to travel in a chauffeured Mercedes, apart from the likelihood they won’t have the money to buy such an expensive limousine.

  35. #35 by Godfather on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 10:28 am

    All these criticisms are not going to make a dent into the pride of Semi Value. He is beyond reproach, beyond the reach of the arms of the law. He is the enforcer for UMNO, and he knows more than anyone else what the profit-sharing formula is. Truly an untouchable.

  36. #36 by Phat-kor on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 10:56 am

    i used to be rather positive about the future of my children ,,,,but after all these many happenings, the scene is not promising at all.
    i used to regard those parents who send their kids abroad or those families who migrate as pessimists, but now,,,,I AM SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THESE

  38. #38 by fail2think on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 12:25 pm

    Our petrol prices ara cheaper than most countries (publicised some years ago)…..Our toll rates are cheaper compared to our neighbouring countries (said Samy some months ago)….. Our cabinet minister’s allowance are cheaper than Singapore (reported some weeks ago)….. That’s why representative of the ruling government has CHEAP thinking, CHEAP action, and CHEAP talking; because to them we (and our lives) are just CHEAP. That’s why the government always wait till someone dies of a mishap before things get moving (slowly)…. and spending a few hundred millions on repair works is still CHEAP. Let’s not spent anymore of our expensive time on some cheapo topic like Samy’s peom to the newly weds.

  39. #39 by k1980 on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 1:43 pm

    Our cabinet ministers’ allowances are cheaper than Singapore— so when you pay peanuts, don’t complain that you get monkeys, such as those representing Sungai Siput, Jasin and Kinabatangan

    There was a young man named Samy,
    Whose Tamil movie-star looks disqualified him from joining the Army,
    So Cabinet Minister he became,
    Tolls, burst pipes, and “Ayam Kambing Bag!”* is his claim to fame,
    His poetic kopi-o-license is now driving the nation barmy.

    * “I Am Coming Back!” – see

  42. #42 by shortie kiasu on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 4:08 pm

    It only reaffirms the lack of intellectuality and depth of Samy V. It obvious and understandable, a draughtman only, but, who claimed to be an qualified architect.

    May be that is the typical of him and also of certain culture, we can see everywhere.

  43. #43 by undergrad2 on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 7:27 pm

    Malaysia is a destination country for human trafficking.

    Article 372 Federal Malaysian Constitution prohibits all forms of slavery including involuntary servitude.

    It also prohibits a lot of other things. Has anything been stopped because our Constitution prohibits it??

  44. #44 by undergrad2 on Thursday, 14 June 2007 - 7:28 pm
