It this possible? Conned of RM6.8 BILLION

Ha ha is this possible? Conned of RM6.8Billion. Billion Billion...... This is about USD2 Billion.

No, definitely not possible. It is 20 billion rupiah and the actual exchange rate from rupiah is 1000 rupiah to 0.34 ringgit. So the Sultan of Brunei has lost RM6.8 MILLION and not billion.

Anyway it is still a lot of money for people like you and me.

Brunei ruler conned out of RM6.8b: Police

JAKARTA, May 31 - The Brunei Sultan has lost 20 billion rupiah (RM6.8 billion) to a group of Indonesian con men posing as officials from Indonesia’s presidential palace, according to police here.
Commissioner General Susno Duadji, the chief of the National Police criminal investigation unit, put an end to days of speculation by confirming over the weekend that the victim was indeed Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.
Gen Susno added at the media briefing that the con men did not speak directly to Sultan Bolkiah.
“They talked only with the Sultan’s adjutant, who was called from Jakarta,” he said.
Officials at the Brunei Embassy in Indonesia could not be reached for confirmation, as their offices were closed yesterday.
At least 32 foreign and Indonesian officials fell victim to the gang, said Inspector-General Hadiatmoko, Gen Susno’s deputy.
The local media, including The Jakarta Globe newspaper, said the con men pretended to be presidential spokesman Andi Mallarangeng and even President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono himself when they asked for money, ostensibly to help fund election campaigns.
The victims were asked to deposit the funds into various bank accounts opened under the name of the public figures to make the scam look convincing. The funds had been frozen and would be returned to the victims, said Gen Susno.
So far, 13 people had been arrested, but two, including the mastermind, were still on the run. – Straits Times

Young King Arthur

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.The question?....What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer.But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend!Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant! creature in all his life.He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table.Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus:What a woman really wants, she to be in charge of her own life.

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared.And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom.

But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed.

The astoundedLancelot asked what had happened.The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night?Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?What would YOU do?

What Lancelot chose is below...

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.Now ....what is the moral to this story?

The moral is.....If you don't let a woman have her own way....Things are going to get ugly!

Management jokes

What ever way you are screwed.

Once Pervez Musharraf, Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif were travelling in an auto-rickshaw. They met with an accident and all three of them died. An Angel was waiting for this moment at the doorstep of death. He asks MUSHARAF and Zardari to go to HEAVEN. But, for Nawaz Sharif, Angel had already decided that he should be sent to HELL.

Nawaz Sharif is not at all happy with this decision. He asks Angel as to why this discrimination is being made. All the three of them had served the public. Similarly, all took bribes, all misused public positions, etc. Then why the differential treatment? He felt that there should be a formal test or an objective evaluation before a decision is made; and should not be just based on opinion or pre-conceived notions. Angel agrees to this and asks all the three of them to appear for an English test.

MUSHARAF is asked to spell " PAKISTAN " and he does it correctly. Zardari is asked to spell " ENGLAND " and he too passes. It is Nawaz Sharif's turn and he is asked to spell " CZECHOSLOVAKIA ". Nawaz Sharif protests that he doesn't know English. He says this is not fair and that he was given a tough question and thus forced to fail with false intent.

Angel then agrees to conduct a written test in Urdu (to give another chance assuming that Nawaz Sharif should at least feel that Urdu would provide an equal platform for all three). MUSHARAF is asked to write "KUTTA BOLA BHOW BHOW". He writes it easily and passes. Zardari is asked to write "BILLY BOLI MYAUN MYAUN". He too passes. Nawaz Sharif is asked to write "BANDAR BOLA GURRRRRR.... ." Tough one. He fails again. Nawaz Sharif is extremely unhappy.

Having been a student of history (which the other two weren't),he now requested for all the 3 to be subjected to a test in history Angel says OK but this would be the last chance and that he would not take any more tests. MUSHARAF is asked: "When did Pakistan get Independence ?" He replied "1947" and passed. Zardari is asked "How many people died during the independence struggle?" He gets nervous. Angel asked him to choose from 3 options: 100,000 or 200,000 or 300,000. Zardari catches it and says 200,000 and passes. It's Nawaz Sharif's turn now. Angel asks him to give the Name and Address of each of the 200,000 who died in the struggle. Nawaz Sharif accepts defeat and agrees to go to HELL.


A Priest, A Drunkard And An Engineer

A Priest, A Drunkard And An Engineer

A priest, a drunkard, and an engineer are sentenced to death by guillotine. The executioner asks the priest if he wants to face upward or downward when he meets his fate. The priest says that he would like to die face up, so that he will be looking toward heaven when he dies.The blade of the guillotine is raised and released. It comes speeding down and suddenly stops just inches from his throat. This is seen as a sign from God, and the priest is set free.

Next, the drunkard goes to the guillotine. He also decides to die face up hoping that he will be as fortunate as the priest. Once again, the blade stops inches from the throat. Again, a miracle, and the drunkard is set free.

The engineer is next. He too decides to die facing up. The executioner slowly raises the blade of the guillotine. Suddenly the engineer exclaims, "Wait a minute! I see what your problem is."
