Dulu PDB ajak para pengguna bermain 'Tikam! Tikam! untuk menarik pelanggan! Kini lebih teruk lagi!
PDB beri 'patong' kepada para pelanggan dalam usaha bersaing dengan Shell yang berikan 'kereta mainan' kepada pelanggan mereka. Malangnya kerana hanya bermentaliti mengaup untong tanpa memerhatikan dasar beragama, PDB telah tersalah pilih.
Islam adalah petunjuk terakhir dari Allah YMK kepada sekalian alam, maka apa yang haram disisi Islam adalah haram untuk seluruh umat manusia. Ini adalah dasar agama Islam.
Antara yang di haramkan oleh Islam adalah membuat, menjual, menyimpan dan mempamerkan patong dalam apa bentuk sekalipun kerana ia akan membawa kepada pemujuaan.
Perbuatan memuja sesuatu makhluk adalah syirik.
Allah akan mengampunkan dosa dosa besar seperti zina, judi, minum arak yang dilakukan seseorang apabila ia bertaubat dan berhenti melakukan perbuatan tersebut, melainkan syirik. Syirik tidak akan dapat ampunan dari Allah. Nauzubillah min zalik!
Umat Islam adalah sebaik baik umat yang dilahirkan bagi faedah manusia kerana mereka menyuruh berbuat segala yang baik dan melarang daripada segala perkara yang salah, buruk dan keji. Mereka beriman kepada Allah YME. (maksud ayat 143 Surah al Baqarah).

Petronas... Petronas... Petronas!
Super Car Craze? Memang gila!
Di negara yang mendakwa Islam Hadhari sebagai cara hidup masih ada manusia yang memimpin sebuah koporat milik kerajaan yang di belenggu pemikiran lapok! Bukan saja negara kita di hantui oleh mentaliti subsidi! Kita juga terbelenggu dengan mentaliti 'tikam-tikam'!
Apakah Petronas sudah tidak ada lain cara untuk meningkatkan prestasi jualan hingga terpaksa menggalakkan para pengguna untuk menjadi 'pejudi nasib'?
Bukankah ulama kita sering mengingatkan bahwa 'boros' adalah cara Syaitan?
Petronas menggalakkan para pengguna membeli petrol dan 'umpan' untuk setiap pembelian RM20.00 mendapat satu peluang mencuba nasib dengan harapan memenangi sebuah kereta dan RM1 juta!
Apakah tidak lebih baik jika Petronas menawarkan para pelanggan mereka 'baucer' untuk membeli bahan petroliam jenama mereka untuk setiap belian RM20.00?
Ataupun memberi 'diskaun' secara langsung untuk setiap belian RM20.00?
Bukankah ini lebih 'mesra' pelanggan?
Bangunlah bangsa ku! Jangan bermentaliti 'pejudi'!
Buka mata kamu! Kedua-duanya! Jangan tutup sebelah mata! Jangan berkawan dengan Syaitan yang menggalakkan pemborosan!

US crude oil rose $3 to a high of $97.10 before closing at $96.70, while the price of London Brent crude climbed to a record level of $93.26 a barrel.
The price of gold also surged to a record peak of $826.40 an ounce on the weak dollar and fears of inflation spurred by the record high oil prices.
Gold is seen as a haven for investors in times of stock market uncertainty.
Gold prices later eased slightly to close at $820.80.
Oil prices fell $2 a barrel on Monday as investors worried that economic growth could slow in the US and curb demand for fuel, but soon resumed their seemingly remorseless climb towards the $100 mark.

Victor Shum, Purvin and Gertz
The latest rise was triggered by a combination of the weak dollar, an attack on a oil pipeline in the Yemen and fears of fresh volatility in the Middle East after a series of deadly bombings in Afghanistan.
"We seem to be seeing a tug of war between people taking profits and those coming into buy into dips, and they are effectively saying we can go past $100," said Mike Wittner at Societe Generale.
The focus now is on the latest snapshot of US crude oil reserves expected on Wednesday.
Analysts expect the stocks to have fallen by more than 1.5 million barrels in the past week, because of disruptions to short-haul Mexican shipments.
In remarks released ahead of the weekly inventory figures, the US Energy Information Administration said it expected US crude consumption to rise next year despite higher prices.
On the other hand, it expects inventories to have been depleted by about 11 million barrels by the end of the first quarter.
The agency also raised its price forecast for 2008 to $79.92 from $73.50 a barrel.
"Rising oil consumption and the realization that additional Opec production may not be sufficient to arrest the inventory decline are keeping markets firm," it noted.
Analysts said they expected the market to remain febrile as prices neared $100.
"But the overall market sentiment is still bullish and prices appear to be on an uptrend towards the $100 mark," said Victor Shum, from energy consultancy Purvin and Gertz.
"If we have a combination of a drawdown in inventories and a cold spell in the US, that could cause a surge in pricing."

Harga minyak mungkin menerobos US$100.00 se tong tahun ini...
Ikutilah berita dari BBC ini... Dan fikirkan saku kita yang bakal kosong setelah mengisi minyak 'panas'!
Masih tak percaya kah?
Crude oil fell $1.04 to $93.49 a barrel by end of trade in New York after hitting $96.24 in overnight trade. Brent crude shed 91 cents to $89.72.
Even as prices retreated, analysts said that crude oil would probably break through $100 a barrel this year.
Strong demand from developing nations and a weak US dollar are likely to keep pushing prices up, they said.
There are also concerns about geopolitical issues such as a clash between the US and Iran, and an escalation of hostilities between Turkey and rebel Kurdish fighters based in the northern areas of Iraq.
| || We are stepping into an unknown area |
Ken Hasegawa, Fimat Japan
The problem facing oil markets and analysts is that all of the factors are combining to create a high level of uncertainty in the market and this, in turn, is driving prices higher.
Oil prices surged on Wednesday after a report that showed domestic US crude stocks fell by 3.9 million barrels last week, worrying analysts who had forecast an increase of 100,000 barrels.
The US is the world's biggest energy consumer and the state of its inventories is a key concern for market watchers.
"We are stepping into an unknown area," said Ken Hasegawa, a broker at Fimat Japan, of the latest price spike.
"Nobody wants to sell, given the fear of a further rise."
At the same time, oil prices have risen as a weaker US dollar made oil, which is priced in dollars, cheaper to buy outside of the US.
The dollar hit its weakest levels against the pound since 1981 on Wednesday.
At the same time, oil investors have been casting a nervous eye on Turkey's threats to carry out a major military incursion into northern Iraq to attack Kurdish rebels.
In past months, there have also been concerns about the stop-start violence in Nigeria's main oil producing region, the international community's unresolved nuclear dispute with Iran and heating supplies for the US winter.
Mexico was forced to halt one-fifth of oil production at the start of the week by a tropical storm hitting its Caribbean coast, sparking further supply fears, but it has now resumed full production.
Oil producers' body Opec continues to be criticised for not doing enough to restrain prices despite agreeing to lift daily output by 500,000 barrels, an increase which came into effect on Thursday.
A senior Opec official said the organisation was not to blame for the price rises and insisted there was no shortage of capacity in the market.
"We never fix oil prices," said Abdullah al-Attiyah, Qatar's energy minister.
"It is market driven and it is out of control."

In early Asian trading, US light crude passed $93 a barrel for the first time, hitting $93.20 before easing back to $92.88 by early afternoon in Europe.
London's Brent also hit a fresh high of $90 before pulling back to $89.58.
Some analysts believe oil prices will hit $100 a barrel before the end of 2007 if current pressures persist.
An array of factors has forced prices up, analysts said.
In past months there also have been concerns about the stop-start violence in Nigeria's main oil producing region, the international community's unresolved nuclear dispute with Iran, and concerns over heating supplies for the US winter.
| || It looks like everyone wants to sell the dollar and buy other assets |
Christoph Eibl, Tiberius Asset Management
At the same time, the US currency has fallen to a fresh low against the euro, making oil - which is priced in dollars - attractive to buy, analysts said.
Suggestions that the US Federal Reserve may cut interest rates further when it meets later this week has further hit confidence in the dollar and pushed money towards oil.
"It looks like everyone wants to sell the dollar and buy other assets, whatever assets whether they be equities or commodities," said Christoph Eibl, head of trading at Tiberius Asset Management.
In recent days, prices have spiked further on worries about disruption to a fifth of Mexican oil output following a tropical storm in the Caribbean.
Earlier in the month, prices were driven by fears that Turkey may carry out an extensive ground assault against Kurdish rebels in Iraq.
US light crude broke through the $92 a barrel price for the first time on Friday and prices have now risen 30% since the start of August.
Efforts by producers' group Opec to restrain prices by agreeing to lift production from 1 November have so far failed to calm the market.
Taking inflation into account, prices are still below the peak of $101 a barrel seen in 1980.
But analysts are now bracing themselves for oil to approach the nominal $100 mark in the next few weeks should current conditions continue.
"I personally don't believe we will see prices at $100 a barrel but it is not impossible given the situation," said David Moore, a commodity strategist at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Options Bets on Crude Could Pull Prices Higher
The wagering over $100 oil has begun in earnest.
Oil prices, which rose briefly above $90 a barrel Friday, are more likely to head toward $100 than $80 in the next month, according to the number of bets placed by options traders on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
The large number of options held to buy crude at $100 a barrel could also act as a pull on prices toward that level.Maka jadilah Pengguna Yang Bijak... Cetak posting "Adakah Anda Seorang Pengguna Yang Bijak" dan sebarkan kepada saudara mara dan para sahabat taulan... terima kasih.
