Letter To Wan Azizah

Dear YB Dr Wan Azizah

I am a blind individual and a musician by profession. As there are not much job

opportunities I have resorted to busking on a weekly basis which does not bring

in sufficient income.

My purpose in writing is to request for your intervention on a matter which is of

grave concern to me as a blind individual.
You may be aware that the welfare department has different aid schemes for

different categories of individuals.
I wish here to highlight 2 main categories. The first category is for senior citizens

who do not have any employment at all and these individuals recieve an

allowance of RM200 per month.

The second category is for individuals who have some employment and these

individuals are accorded an allowance of RM400 on a monthly basis.
About 2 years ago, I applied for the second category of welfare assistance but

have instead been given the senior citizens allowance of RM200. My application

for the second category allowance has somehow been rejected despite the fact

that I have furnished proof that I am self employed.

As such, I would appreciate it if you could kindly look into this matter on my

behalf as all my documents of self employment has been provided to the

authorities.

Since I have made no headway I have decided to write to you instead.

Looking forward to recieving your kind assistance and attention to  the  matter

at hand.  A reply from you would be greatly appreciated by email.

LETTER TO FMT


Letter To FMT



anwar's impatience could be his downfall. personally, I gave my support to the present government because it

is the lesser of 2 evils. although I voted for Teresa kok it was done reluctantly as during the 2008 elections I

helped both tony pua and Teresa to raise funds for that purpose as I was a member of the dap then. however,

when I expressed interest in becoming a politician Teresa kok was against it and must have influenced the top

brass to ignore me altogether. just before the last general elections, I wrote to dap's liew chin tong offering my

assistance to help him in his campaign but he rejected my offer immediately. on another note, it seems that

najib's mantra// cash is king, holds true after all. I question the logic of this government of continuing the brim

and what is most disgusting giving bonuses to civil servants when the country is in dire straits. as I have said

before, setting up the tabong harapan is a stupid idea. I for one will never contribute to such a fund as it is a

mockery of the intelligence of all right thinking Malaysians. what the government could have done is to

prosecute all former officials of the former regime who have been involved in corruption and I am quite certain

that the government will get back a substantial amount of money to fill up the coffers again. come to think of

it, why has both najib and rosma not been arrested yet despite the fact that there is so much of evidence

against them. is the government waiting for the couple to abscond so that their files can be closed? as I have

related before I recently wrote to fami fadsil and maria chin who ignored me except for fami writing a short

note to try to silence me. sad to say, I have come to the conclusion that most politicians are self serving and

opportunists. a very good example is maria chin who was once the director of berseh. I question as to why she

left the organization to join politics and if my memory serves me correct demanded to be given a

parliamentary seat. all this smacks of power and greed. I know that I will get quite a lot of flack from readers

for my comments but I feel that in a democratic country each and everyone is entitled to their opinion. in the

past I have even been labeled as a moron by a reader but I will still be steadfast with my comments. both musa

and jamal have absconded. perhaps the next couple to escape justice will be the infamous couple najib and

rosma, and we have the home ministry to thank for their inaction. good luck to the authorities for moving at

snail's pace to apprehend them in order that justice is served. finally, may I recommend readers to listen to the

latest speech given by Mahathir's secretary namely, Matthias chang as he is the voice of reason. both him and

his client were imprisoned by the former regime under sosma for trying to expose the 1mdb scandal. Matthias

YouTube channel is// future fast forward. so far he has uploaded more than 50 speeches but the last one is most

interesting and I fully subscribe to his views with regards to the new administration.

Men's Health (Malaysia) 11th Sept 2017

11th September 2017 By Eugene Pua In Tune With The Rhythm Alfred Ho has been performing music for more than three decades – yet he’s still chasing success. Find out what keeps this 68-year-old singer and guitarist going strong Men's Health (Malaysia)1 Sep 2017 IF YOU ASK HIM, ALFRED HO WILL tell you that he’s been a musician since 1984. But it won’t take you much longer after that to realise music has been an integral part of his life since he was a boy. Blind since he was three years old due to measles, Ho became enamoured with the guitar when he heard his schoolmate at the St. Nicholas School for the Blind in Penang playing it. Slowly but surely, he taught himself to play the instrument, and soon started singing for fun – especially as those around him encouraged and complimented him. But his hobby became something more serious in 1971 when he joined Bakat TV, a talent contest on RTM. “I thought it was just an entertainment programme, so I had nothing to lose,” Ho recalls. “But I went right up to the semifinals, which was an achievement to me because I was an amateur.” Although Ho found steady work as a telephone operator for the Penang city council, he never quit music, as he moonlighted as a singer in bars and pubs. But he found the double schedules exhausting, so, in 1984, he asked his employers to hire another blind person (which they did) so that he could pursue music full-time. Five English albums, one Chinese album and three decades later, Ho has no regrets about taking the plunge. “Of course, I was scared and apprehensive – but nothing ventured, nothing gained,” Ho says. “I knew I could sing, so I took the challenge and I came down to KL and started my adventure here. “Having all these challenges makes you work harder,” he continues. “And if you work harder, hopefully, you might be successful. But so far, success has eluded me.” Considering all that he’s achieved in the three decades that he’s been a professional musician, it’s surprising that Ho considers himself neither successful nor popular. But, to him, the more he plays – which is often, as he performs regularly at the AK Busk Stop in Avenue K Shopping Mall – the more it drives him on to realise his ambitions. “As long as there’s breath in my body, I’ll keep going,” Ho states confidently. “I’ll only give up when my health fails me. But as long as I can be up and about, I’ll do what I can to achieve success and I’ll fight to get to where I want to be – that is, to get wider recognition and to play abroad.” At an age when other men are happily retired and horsing around with their grandkids, Ho shows no signs of slowing down, let alone hanging up his guitar. In fact, he’s searching for a reliable, capable agent who can help him take his music to the next level. But don’t you worry: he won’t mind if fellow Malaysians – like you – take the leap of faith like he did to follow their dreams. “You must believe in yourself. If you believe that it will be good for you, why not go for it? More so if people tell you that you’re good. You just have to try,” Ho says. “But if you don’t succeed, you can’t blame anybody. Life’s like that – some days you’re lucky, some days you’re not. When I got into music, the climb was very slow – but I never gave up.” WISDOM: ALFRED HO Take note of Alfred Ho’s sage advice, and you too could be on top for decades Men's Health (Malaysia)1 Sep 2017alfredhomusic.blogspot.com The 68-year-old blind singer and guitarist on ambition, achievements and adventures. CULTIVATE THE SYNERGY OF TALENT AND HARD WORK “You must have the talent and, of course, you must work at it. I also believe in God’s guidance: if God has given you the talent, then you should try to exploit it to the full. But mainly, you must be interested in it. For me, I put my heart and soul into singing.” NO MATTER WHAT, YOU HAVE TO PRACTISE“ If I don’t sing for a month or two, I’ll feel a bit rusty so you must keep at it. I have fewer jobs so I’ve been busking. I don’t feel ashamed to, because it’s like practice for me, and people from all walks of life can hear me.” KEEP YOUR MIND SHARP" Be active whatever you do. A lot of people are okay, but once they retire, they go downhill. So, the main thing is to keep the brain healthy, then the body healthy. For me, it’s music: I learn new songs periodically, and all of the music is in my head. It’s how I keep my brain and body active.” 

Alfred Ho ~ The Malaysian Blind Musician Extraordinaire.. 0

By Simon Homefinder on April 8, 2016

One Man’s Personal Quest And Vision Towards Attaining Musical Enlightenment For some people, being a street musician is nothing more than a performer on the busy sidewalks begging for alms. For others, it is merely showing off one’s skills to the public in the hope of breaking into the big-time showbiz industry. But for street musician Alfred Ho, he is only thinking of his next meal and putting food on the table daily for his family. Busking is by no means an occupation filled with “glitz and glamour” – it is often hard work, as well as braving the hot sun and constant rain, day after day. Being a street busker demands a special kind grit or courage, as well as strength of character in facing up to the unending hurdles and challenges, often along busy roads and unforgiving streets of metropolitan KL. This is the story of one man’s dream and his quest for musical enlightenment.  Dubbed “Malaysia’s Stevie Wonder” during his heyday, Alfred Ho had been prematurely deprived of his eyesight or vision at a tender age of three, after a lengthy bout with measles. Hailing from the mining state of Perak, this loyal fan of the blues and 60’s rock ‘n’ roll has always possessed an unbridled passion for singing ever since he could hold a microphone as a child. During those days back then, karaoke was still in-trend, and Alfred had plenty of practice “behind the scenes”. As he grew older, he started experimenting with his favourite musical instrument, which is the guitar. Being naturally gifted with the guitar, he started playing and singing to mass crowds at numerous public events and functions, such as expos, fun-fairs, weddings, trade shows, community gatherings, as well as private jamming sessions with fellow colleagues. He also has an uncanny knack for mimicking or imitating other singers in his trademark deep baritone-styled voice – his vocal dynamics are as strong and impressive as ever. His various idols include the likes of Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard, Pat Boone, Engelbert Humperdink, and many other legends. He had a secret ambition to be a great artiste someday just like his idols. He always sang his heart out every time he performs, and pretty soon, his fan-base (i.e. legion of fans) grew too. Many of his loyal fans were truly amazed, thrilled and inspired by his majestic voice – it was strong and serene, yet soothing and comforting at the same time. Ultimately, the music industry took notice of his rare talent and gave him a recording contract. He briefly achieved national fame when he participated in RTM’s Bakat TV inaugural “reality singing” competition back in 1971. The rest, as they would say is history. But alas, all good things must come to an end somehow, eventually. Alfred Ho was no different…  Today, Alfred Ho is a faint glimmer of hope and a pale shadow of his past glory. Perhaps age has caught up with his voice, taken a toll on his will and spirit, or that he had become disillusioned of trying to “make it big” in the local music industry. His daily struggle of trying to make ends meet is also not helping his life-long cause of reviving his distant dream and long-forgotten ambition. Nevertheless, there is one certainty which was absolute – his voice had changed little over the years since he started singing almost five decades ago. The premium quality of his vocals is absolutely stunning and incredible. Just as a good wine needs to be aged or mellowed to achieve perfection in taste, Alfred Ho had seemingly defied the odds by sticking to his guts and playing his heart out. He kept on believing in himself, that his day would arrive, and it will surely come. Being blind has never hampered or discouraged Alfred Ho – aka “the blind busker” from plying his trade on the dusty streets, in the heart & soul of Malaysia’s city centre. He continues to busk to this present day. If you are lucky enough, you may just catch him in action – tugged somewhere in a lonely corner with his trusty guitar and his angelic voice.  For more information on Alfred Ho and his music, please visit his personal blog at http://alfredhomusic.blogspot.my , or simply check out his YouTube videos at www.youtube.com/user/alfredho1111/featured . Also featured below, is one of his many street performances in popular shopping malls and LRT stations. In particular, the following Facebook video link shows a ‘gung-ho’ Alfred performing a heart-warming rendition of the evergreen ballad “Butterfly” at the concourse area within RapidKL’s KLCC LRT Station at Avenue K, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

Malay Mail October 26th 2017 by Melanie Chalil ASIA’S GOT TALENT SEASON 2’S oldest contestant is teaching the young ’uns a lesson. You might recognise him: Visually-impaired Malaysian singer Alfred Ho. INSPIRING Kuchai Lama resident, 68, impressed judges with peppy performance of Quando, quando, quando. ► Got David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park moving. ► Reminded viewers disability holds no man back. Show has no age limit, giving Ho license to serenade regional audience. ► Singer an encouraging and uplifting reminder talent comes in all forms. “This should inspire able-bodied people,” said Ho “If a person my age can do it, younger people should all the more go for it.” WIFE’S IDEA ► Rufina Baptist, 58, saw the open auditions. ► Encouraged Ho to join reality show for the fun of it. SEASONED MUSICIAN ► Performing professionally for 30 years. ► Busks around Kuala Lumpur’s Avenue K mall so people from all walks of life can listen to his music. ► Known for oldies by Cliff Richard, Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka.
Malay Mail October 21st 2017 WHEN some former students of St Xavier’s Institution heard that blind singer and schoolmate Alfred Ho was busking for a living in Kuala Lumpur, they wasted no time in trying to help him. He was invited by the Old Xaverians Association and the Class of 66/68 to sing at their annual function in Penang. Class of 66/68 spokesman Quah Boo Hock said they invited Ho to perform when they heard what he was doing. “When we heard Ho was busking in Kuala Lumpur, we invited him to perform at this dinner as a way of helping him out. “He is also a Xaverian and his songs are of our era and we would love to hear these hits that he was famous for performing.” His voice strong as ever, Ho belted out favourite oldies by Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard, The Beatles, Del Shannon, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka, and The Bee Gees with some contemporary tunes thrown in for the benefit of the younger members of his audience. His motivation to sing and entertain has not diminished over the years and many sang along tunes that reminded them of their younger days. The 68-year-old, who became blind at the age of three due to measles, is aided by his wife Rufina Baptist during his performances. Born in Perak, Ho spent most of his younger days at the St Nicholas Home for the Blind when he became blind. Ho studied at the home until primary level and continued his secondary studies at the school in Farquhar Street. He started to play the guitar at St Nicholas when he heard some of the residents playing in a band. “I borrowed the guitar while some of the boys were not playing and slowly taught myself to play the guitar until I reached a level where they urged me to play and sing for them.” He was bitten by the music bug and has not stopped since. After completing his secondary studies, he waded straight into the Penang local music scene, playing in bars and pubs picking up a sizeable fan base along the way. Not satisfied, he decided to go to Kuala Lumpur in the early 1970s and entered the popular Bakat TV talent contest. He made it to the semi-finals in 1971. “Not bad for an amateur, who was also facing the television camera addressing a national audience and suddenly, I had some fame and fans,” he said. He returned to Penang in the late 1970s where he secured a job as a telephone operator with the then Penang Municipal Council while moonlighting as a deejay and singer at the local pubs and nightspots. But holding two jobs was taking a toll on his health and he decided to go full-time as an entertainer. His talent was spotted by a record company and Ho returned to Kuala Lumpur in the mid-1980s to cut five English albums and one Chinese album with moderate success. “It was a risk when I took the plunge but I have no regrets as nothing ventured, nothing gained though the success I had hoped for eluded me,” he said. “I can’t say I have been successful or popular but I have not stopped playing regularly.” He has not lost his ambition and his dream to perform overseas but he needs an agent who can help him realise his goals. “You must believe in yourself but if I don’t succeed, I don’t blame anyone,” he added. “You must work hard at your God-given talent and exploit it to the fullest, putting your heart and soul into what your are doing. I will give up when my health fails me.” Ho has been busking at the AK Busk Stop in the Avenue K mall in Kuala Lumpur. “I don’t feel ashamed as it’s like a practise session for me, and people from all walks of life can hear me,” he said. “Keeping my mind sharp and active is important as it also helps to keep the body healthy.

LETTER TO YB FAHMI (2)

Dear YB Mr. Fahmi,

Datuk Seri Anwar has today given a very timely reminder for the newly minted government not to shirk it's responsibilities but to assist all Malaysians with their problems. On your interview with BFM on the breakfast grill, you came across as a friendly and caring person to the extent that I fell for your insincerity and misjudged you completely.

With this in mind I wish to register my disappointment with you for not having replied to my email which I sent to you some days ago and the letter was also posted on your facebook. It looks like PKR is not a people's centric party and it is my hope that your party is not umno 2.0 as it seems to be.

However, I shall not give up my quest for assistance and will seek out other officials to fulfill my desire for the help that I need. Anyway, if the new government does not deliver  then we have only 5 short years to put your regime to the test. I know that you won't be happy to read this straight forward letter of mine but I believe in being frank and honest. If need be I shall write to Datuk Seri Anwar to seek his understanding with regards to the problems that the disabled community are facing.

Yours faithfully,
Alfred ho

LETTER TO FAHMI FADZIL (1)


Dear YB Mr. Fahmi,

I have just heard your  interview over BFM and I was rather impressed by your friendly attitude. That is the reason as to why I am writing to you right now.

First of all, allow me to introduce myself to you. I am a blind individual in my late 60's and a veteran singer/guitarist by profession. I started my singing career when I participated on bakat TV, the very first TV talent contest screened by RTM  which was held in 1971.

However, for many years now I have had no support from the former regime and as such I have to resort to busking for my survival. Thankfully I do get some private engagements from time to time. For your info, I am busking at  Avenue K which  is at the KLCC LRT station on Thursdays from 5 to 7 pm. Do feel free to catch me performing if you can spare the time. My forte is singing the songs of the 50's right through to the 70's and I cover songs by Elvis Presley, cliff Richard, Ricky nelson and johnny tillitson to name just a few.

Mr. Fahmi, I wish to inform you that after pleading with the previous government for a job as a DJ with RTM, I finally got it but there was a hidden agenda not to keep me there for long. After working there for about 6 months I was relieved from the job but due to my determination to get back the job I wrote several letters to the then information minister namely, Khalil Yaakob and other VIPs for assistance but all pleas fell on deaf ears.

Mr. Fahmi , my actual purpose in writing to you is to request to have an appointment with you so that I can tell you more about the problems faced by the disabled community. There is actually a senator who is supposed to represent the disabled community but unfortunately our plight has not improved whatsoever.

Finally, Mr. Fahmi , I wish to inform you that I have been a great supporter of the opposition alliance and it may interest you to learn that I had posted numerous comments on free Malaysia today urging readers to vote in a new government and thank god we have achieved our dreams.

It may also interest you to learn that I have written on several occasions to PKR but have not received a single reply. I certainly hope that you won't disappoint me this time.

The latest letter that I wrote to PKR was to offer my services to honour the home coming of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by giving him a small concert as I understand that he is a huge fan of the golden oldies.

Unfortunately, up till now I have not received a single reply from your party.

Mr. Fahmi, for your info, I have uploaded more than 200 clips onto YouTube. If you wish to view them, please go to YouTube and type in my channel which is alfredho1111

To get to know me better please visit my blog at//

Looking forward to your early reply and thanking you in anticipation.

ALFRED HO ON ASIA'S GOT TALENT (OCT 2017)


LETTER TO TUNG SHIN HOSPITAL

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a blind individual singer/musician by profession in my 60's and i wish to
relate a very unpleasant experience with an ENT specialist going by the name of
Dr Michael Herg who is attached to the tung shin hospital situated in Pudu. It was
on Saturday the 8th of November 2014 when I went to the tung shin hospital to
seek treatment as I was having some hearing problems on my left ear. I was duly
assigned to an ENT specialist going by the name of Dr Michael Herg as mentioned
above. On examination, he found that both my ears had quite an amount of ear
wax and therefore had to be removed. Removing the wax from my right ear was
painless as my wife informed me that the Dr removed the wax using what looked
like a pair of tweezers. However,when removing the wax from the left ear a wax
sucking machine was used and it was quite painful. To my horror. when I indicated
to the Dr about the pain during the procedure, he lost his temper and told me in
no uncertain terms that should anything go wrong I have to bear the
consequences. Due to the pain, I remember that the procedure had to be
stopped at least twice which led to the Dr getting more agitated and annoyed.
He even chided me for imagining the pain and that even a 3 year old child could
go through the procedure without any fuss. At one stage, he even threatened
to have me undergo the procedure under general anesthesia but I continued
with the procedure having to bear with the pain. All in all, the procedure to
extract the wax from my left ear took between 10 to 15 minutes. After the wax
removal, I felt that my condition was no better but I thought that the ear needs
time to adjust for the healing process to take place.

The breakdown of my bill is as follows:

150 dollars as being consultation fees
15 dollars for use of consulting room.
200 dollars for cleaning procedure

On Monday, 10th of November as my condition had not improved, I proceeded to
call up the customer relations officer of the tung shin hospital someone going by
the name of Mr. Eric. I related my bad experiences with Dr Herg to him to which
he sounded quite sympathetic with regards to the situation at hand. I then made
a request to Mr. Eric that I would need to have another appointment with Dr
Herg as my hearing condition had not improved. I even requested Mr. Eric to ask
Dr Herg to wave the consultation fee as I am not financially well off.On the
afternoon of the same day I managed to have the appointment with Dr Herg
where I told him that my hearing condition had not improved. After examining my
eardrum he told me that it was in perfect condition and that there was nothing
more that he could do. When I requested Dr Herg to explore other possibilities to
rectify the situation he lost his cool and became rather arrogant. He even made a
statement to say that he was not god and that he can't solve all problems. As I
was not getting any where with him, I had no choice but to leave his surgery
feeling short changed.To make matters worse, I was slapped with a bill of 50 dollars which was a great
insult and causing me to have to fork out the cash which Dr Herg did not deserve.

Finally, it is my intention to bring this sordid matter up with the tung shin
hospital authorities and to impress upon them to give me a refund of the 50
dollars as I strongly feel that Dr Herg did not deserve it. I will also make a strong
complaint against Dr Herg as he has no ethics and for his disregard and uncaring
attitude towards a disabled person such as myself. If this issue is not resolved
amicably,then I shall proceed to bring this matter up with the Malaysian medical
association with the hope that Dr Herg can be disciplined for his very unethical
behaviour.

PANASONIC TRIBUNAL JUDGEMENT LETTER


PANASONIC TRIBUNAL LETTER

Dear Sir/Madam,

This document is to state that I have filed a case against Panasonic Malaysia Sdn Bhd on 2nd Jan 2014 at the Consumers Tribunal (Case No : TTPM-WP(8)-2014) as a grave injustice has been inflicted upon me by agents of the above said company. I wish specificaly to bring 3 of their agents namely Mohd Ali (technician), Mr Kantha Palani (Service Manager) & Ms Chow Kah Wyn (Marketing Manager) to answer charges of negligence & for their discriminatory attitude towards me. I would like to state that I have tried all other avenues to settle the matter at hand, such as, by contacting the top management & even speaking to the secretary (Ms Jasmine) of the managing director (Mr Yosuke Matsunaga) but without success. I had even tried to contact the assistant managing director (Mr Chee Chung Cheng) of the company on several occasions but was always told by the receptionist that he was on leave.

I'm a blind individual & a singer/guitarist by profession. About a month ago I took the air pot pump of my thermal pot to be repaired at the Panasonic Malaysia service centre located in Section 13 Petaling Jaya. It must be explained here that I took the water pump minus the thermal pot as the latter mentioned was in working order. However, when the technician found that I had only brought the air pot pump without bringing the thermal pot, he refused to entertain my request to have the water pump repaired & insisted that should I want the air pot pump to be repaired, I must bring in the thermal pot as well. Then on Friday 6th Dec 2013, I brought the water pump together with the thermal pot which was in perfect working order to have the air pot pump repaired. However, due to his negligence the technician involved with the repairs going by the name of Mohd Ali damaged some essential parts in my thermal pot & as such the thermal pot is no longer functioning. As a result of this the technician (Mohd Ali) & service centre manager (Mr Kantha Palani) tried to pin the blame on me for damaging the parts in the thermal pot but of course, I stood my ground by denying their accusations. Then on Monday 9th Dec 2013, I contacted the marketing manager (Ms Chow Kah Wyn) of the above mentioned product for assistance, where she refused to hear my side of the story but rather believe the pack of lies told by the technician & manager of the service centre and she refused my request for the situation to be rectified i.e. to have the damaged parts replaced without me having to bear the cost of repairs as it was due to no fault of mine. I would like it to be known that a representative going by the name of Saiful from Pejabat Perdagangan Dalam Negeri Koperasi Dan Kepenggunaan Cawangan Petaling Jaya tried to mediate in the matter but nothing was forthcoming, thus leaving me no choice but to utilize the services of the small claims tribunal.

The three respondents from Panasonic Malaysia which I wish to bring to the small claims court are as follows

Technician ( Mohd Ali ) (03 - 79537600)
Service Manager ( Mr Kantha Palani ) (03 - 79537600)
Marketing Manager ( Ms Chow Kah Wyn ) (03 - 78097888)

Panasonic Malaysia Sdn Bhd,
Lot 10, Jalan 13/2,
46200 Petaling Jaya
Selangor

Finally, from my point of view, a just settlement would be that Panasonic Malaysia make repairs on the thermal pot without me having to bear the cost & in addition I wish to make a claim of RM600 to cover taxi fares, inconvenience caused & other miscellaneous expenditure that I have incurred. I look forward to a just conclusion with regards to the matter at hand.


Yours Faithfully,

Alfred Ho

LETTER TO LIEW CHIN TONG (DAP) 2

Hi Mr. Liew,

As I stated in my last correspondence with you prior to the general elections, I reminded you that vengeance and arrogance are not the traits of a good politician. I hope that you have been humbled by your loss to Mr Wee Ka Siong. Like the saying goes, pride comes before a fall.

In conclusion I wish to inform you that both me and my wife voted for Teresa Kok
despite my reservations about her character. We did this because like all other right thinking Malaysians we desired change and I am glad that we have achieved success in this respect.

Yours faithfully,
Alfred Ho

Open letter to Mr. Liew Chin Tong (DAP) 1

Hello Mr. Liew,

Congratulations for having been picked as candidate for Ayer Hitam to battle it out with incumbent Wee Kar Siong. I am quite certain that Wee will be trounced in the contest  for the seat.  As a right thinking Malaysian  I wish you every success in your endeavour to win over the seat from MCA. A change of government is of the utmost importance as 60 years of BN rule has done the country untold damage so we rely on you and the opposition alliance to arrest power from the current ruling regime.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alfred Ho and I am a blind individual, singer by profession.
I remember that you gave me a lift to a ceramah at Serdang when I just joined the DAP and sang a couple of songs to entertain your party supporters some years ago.

Consequently , I gave performances to help raise funds at dinner functions to assist Tony Pua and Teresa Kok to finance their campaigns for the 2008 elections. When I joined the DAP, it was my intention to get involved in politics and was even prepared to help with campaigning at that point and time.

However, my hopes were shattered because Teresa Kok discouraged me from fulfilling my good intentions and I just allowed my membership to expire.

For your information, I have been a regular commentator on the free Malaysia today facebook page encouraging the readers of that news portal to vote in the opposition alliance for a brighter future so that Malaysia  can stand tall once  again.

This government is corrupted to the core not to speak of its racist policies. I would be only too glad to be of assistance to your party and the opposition alliance by performing at your fund raising events and if given the chance to campaign on the same platform to raise awareness for a better future for our nation.


Your kind response to my offer would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to your favourable reply.

Yours faithfully,

Alfred Ho
