Eh, cukup lah Rais Yatim

So, yesterday evening, I saw a Tweet by @staronline about an article on Information, Communications, Culture and Arts Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim’s call for the private sector to use Bahasa Malaysia more widely to “dignify the national language”. My immediate response, being a *cough* good *cough* Malaysian brought up speaking the national language […]

Sept 16 Public Holiday from 2010: Malaysia Day!

The image above was taken from’s Flickr site under Creative Common License. Thanks! We interrupt our regular blogging – well, not regular but I was working on a post – to bring you some good news. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has announced that starting from 2010, Sept 16 will be declared […]

1thing to many

Okay, just so you know, I’m all for a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-multi society. But I really don’t get 1Malaysia. I mean, sure, harmony between different races blah blah blah is all well and good, but haven’t we achieved that a long time ago? And yes, sure, there are many out there who are becoming […]

I'm a little bit bored with PAS' entertainment protests

I mean, get a new scriptwriter please. I wasn’t actually going to blog about this because I thought, what the heck man, every time a new artiste is announced, sure got press release. But then I just read this article in The Star titled: Understanding reached on Beyonce’s costume. Truth be told, I want to […]

All for legal public gatherings

I received the SMS News Alert yesterday but was too drugged out to react. This morning, however, was a different story. The headline of The Star which read, PROTEST AVENUE, said it all. The Police Act will be reviewed to allow the public to assemble in specific places without the need for a police permit, […]
