Mobile Number Portability is here!

“Hey, what’s your phone number?” “It’s 012 *** ****” “Oh, you’re with Maxis!” “Er, no.” How is that conversation possible? Well, with the new Mobile Number Portability, which allows mobile users in Malaysia to start switching mobile networks but still keeping their same number – prefix included. The Star reports that you can start applying […]

Apple CEO Steve Job is not dead!

Okay, okay, my headline might be a wee bit sensational but heck, it caught your attention didn’t it? How much do you want to bet that it caught the attention of many, many other people? Well, it just did when Bloomberg (the news agency, not the person) accidentally released an obituary for the man behind […]

Anwar Ibrahim: Comeback Kid

Well, the whole town’s talking about it already (can you imagine the SMS messages), and I don’t think anyone can say they are really surprised.

Face Off: Iron Man takes on The Dark Knight

Meow. Catwoman would be so proud. A recent interview on Moviehole quoted Robert Downey Jr aka Iron Man as saying: “My whole thing is that that I saw The Dark Knight. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine […]

30 Hour Famine: View from behind the stage

This was the culmination of the campaign, of which my trip to Laos was part of. Yen Hau, Wan Zhen, Susan, Owen, […]

Astro ruined the Olympics Closing Ceremony

Update (9.55pm) They just announced the closing ceremony has concluded, and I suppose the Games too. So nice to see all the Olympians celebrating. They truly deserve it. Kudos to China too. I really enjoyed this year’s Olympics – especially since it’s in the same time zone. As for Astro – final tally was 11 […]

Joe Biden for (Vice) President

Democratic presidential candidate-(soon-to-be)elect Barack Obama has named Senator Joseph Biden as his running mate. The name sounds vaguely familiar, and I don’t know too much about Biden, to be honest, but from what I’ve read today, seems to be an interesting choice. Hmm… p/s Yes, I am back from Sabah. Pictures tomorrow (today) – Pukak […]

RWP location released!

I am heading over to Sabah for a few days to work on a youth development programmme with some teenagers, and as such, will miss RWP. Yes, the event I have been plugging, and plugging, and plugging. Was told that even mobile reception is limited in Pukak, where my friend and I will be based, […]

Zulkifli Noordin: Inappropriate comment?

Today, both The Star and NST published stories from the Dewan Rakyat session yesterday, and both featured a story on the “Missing MP”, PKR’s Zulkifli Noordin who apparently dissapeared from the face of earth after barging into the open forum organised by the Bar Council on conversion to Islam, something he denies. The Star’s headline […]
