And now it's China, unfortunately

Apologies for my silence over the past few days. I had been in Singapore since Thursday and access to the Internet was minimal (not so much because I couldn’t get a connection, rather because I wasn’t in front of the computer that much). Wow, it’s one major tragedy after another. Asia is still reeling from […]

Penang syariah court allows Muslim convert to revert to Buddhism

Update: The Star reports that Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has asked the public to respect the Syariah Court’s decision – the first-of-its-kind ruling in this landmark case. Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has described it as a welcomed move, as has Federal Opposition Leader Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. […]

Sing like there's no tomorrow

In anticipation of this week’s American Idol (and hoping that Jason Castro gets the hell off finally get the boot), I decided to blog this post. Every now and then, when I get some free time, I like to scour Yahoo! News for strange stories which we don’t often read about – smaller stuff that […]

Cyclone Nargis: Over 22,000 dead so far

This morning, I received a phone call from a friend asking if anyone from the office had heard from a colleague of mine who had been in Myanmar. At that point, I knew about the cyclone hitting the country but reports that I was reading only (okay, it’s still a lot) noted 350 people dead. […]

Penny Wong, gay Parliamentarian

Well, who would’ve thought? When I first read the news about Australian Minister of Water and Climate Change Penny Wong, it was in The Star celebrating the fact that the 40-year-old Senator is Malaysian-born. Her full name is Penelope Wong Ying Yen, and she was born in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (She left the country with […]

Out of jail, into the real world

I see the signs but I’m not sure what it’s telling me. Neither do I think that there has to be a hidden message somewhere, but sure coincidences like this happened for a reason. Or maybe I’ve been reading one spiritual book too many. Whatever it is, I’m intrigued. I don’t know if you’ve managed […]

The Bangsar Boy: City Blues

Those of you who know me probably also know that I have a column in The Star. It is called The Bangsar Boy, and sits in StarMetro. Every fortnight, I write about things happening around town, share anecdotes from my past or just rant about anything and everything related to KL city. Basically, I write […]

Glory glory Man United!

Woot! I tried to stay up to catch it, watched a bit then found myself failing so didn’t watch the game. Read the Yahoo! play by play thingy this morning though – how exciting! And Paul Scholes’ goal – woah! That’s vintage Scholesey! BRING ON CHELSEA OR LIVERPOOL!

Iron Man rocks ass!

Well, okay, so it’s not like Academy Award winning but heck, Robert Downey Jr was so good that he might just get a nomination. It was two hours of pure joy for me. I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant – I mean edgy Robbie Jr playing a superhero? Come on, even […]
