Beijing 2008 - Olympics Opening Ceremony

Pure genius. That’s all I can say about the opening ceremony. From the 2008 drummers in the start, it was moment after moment of brilliance, I thought. What a brilliant way to introduce the four greatest inventions of China – gun-powder, ink, paper and the compass – told via a “scroll”. The depth and creativity […]

34 people on the LRT

In order to avoid the traffic jam caused by the sudden rain yesterday, I took the LRT from Bangsar to KLCC for an interview I was conducting. Since I have been helping RandomActs and Zain out with RWP (that’s the Read While Waiting Project, if you haven’t heard of it), I thought I’d observe some […]

The Home Minister can, er, stay home

So, I’ve taken a break from the usual politics story (mainly ‘cos it’s the same thing over and over again) but I just had to write about this when I saw this small piece hidden in a corner of P7 in today’s NST headlined: Syed Hamid not in favour of forum The article reports that […]

30-Hour Famine 2008 - Journey to Laos

I know that I said I was done with blogging about my trip to Laos but it appears that World Vision has just uploaded the 8TV show on the trip. I promised to post it when it was up, so here it is: Part 1 of 3 Part 2 of 3 Part 3 of 3 […]

MTV Asia Awards 2008

He said he tried others and it was okay. Wouldn’t dare suggest that “something” happened but I wonder if anyone had the same experience. If indeed […]

Wan Azizah quits as MP, makes way for Anwar

This is what I was dreading. I personally think that it is a waste of money to run in an elections and then resign to allow for a by-election. I said this before during the General Elections. Datuk Dr. Wan Azizah has resigned as Permatang Pauh MP to make way for her husband Datuk Seri […]

LA Earthquake news: Twitter reigns supreme

Media convergence is well and alive. I just read this story on CNET (well, it was headlined on Yahoo! News) about how a woman Twitter-ed her first earthquake experience, from her gynecologist’s office. The article quotes Verdell Wilson as saying: “As soon as I got dressed, I twittered my experience from my cell phone,” Wilson […]
