DiPuji Tak Terbang, DiHina Tak Tumbang : Malaysia's Inai Kiara : The First Cut is the Deepest!!

is a song written by Cat Steven's in 1965,  but the song it self ,  was taken to the top of the UK charts, 11 years latter in 1976 by Rod Stewart 

THE year is  2016  :  It has been a wonderful  24 months  for  Pahang, as ordinary men and women  became rich enough to retire,  some even as millionaires,  as rear earth or better know as bauxite became the flavour of the day.

 IT was against  this  back drop ,  plans  were being made,  the first cut is the deepest type  to chop off the legs of Inai Kiara,  a global champion from  Malaysia,  left ignored in a nation that loves her champions.

But I know
The first cut is the deepest
I know, the first cut is the deepest
'Cause when it comes to being lucky
She's cursed

HAVING secured  the breakwater contract at Kuantan Port,  a couple of years earlier,  a contract eyed by Kuantan Port's 60 per cent owner IJM Corp Bhd as well as a host of dredgers from China,  a  nation which is about 29 times bigger than Malaysia.

YET,  there was not a single voice who dared  to raise their voice in public  and object to Inai Kiara' securing the contract.

WHY didnt they?: China herself is home to many of  the great dredgers of the world,  while IJM , itself is one of South East Asia's largest conglomerates.

THEY Didn't,   because they couldn't,  as here stood,  the made in Malaysia  and run by a  Malay captain,  INAI KIARA ,  READ :  Asia's Largest dredger, and the fifth in the World.
