The Bangsar Boy - Colour Blindness at our core

I can already imagine the negative comments that will come from this post (which, if it gets personal, I probably won’t approve). This week, in my The Bangsar Boy article, I once again take on the issue of race, in that I believe that Malaysians in general have long embraced 1Malaysia (but in a different […]

Today, I am officially jobless.

As of yesterday, the desk that I have been sitting at in Menara Star looks emptier than this. And as of today, I am officially jobless. Some of you may have heard (it’s not really a secret anyway) that I have resigned from The Star after spending over six years with the company. Yesterday was […]

Oh Snap! Twestival KL 2009

This morning, I woke up early for a meeting before rushing over to a class I am teaching when I saw a Tweet from an online friend, Amanda. Some of you might be familiar with her work on Twestival, and that is exactly how I first encountered her when we applied to run Twestival KL […]

I am a Sarong Party Boy

My friend Karen took this picture of Zain teaching me how to wear a sarong. I had joined the two of them and Juana at Zain’s house a few days ago to just lepak. When I walked in, I saw that all three of them were sarong-fied and was told that I had to join […]

The Bangsar Boy - Don’t make life difficult for transgenders

This week, in The Bangsar Boy, I encourage readers to help end discrimination against the transgender community. Taken from PhotoComiX from Flickr under the Creative Common License. Originally, I had actually written a different story for my column. But on the way to Perth, I read this article by my former colleague M Veera Pandiyan […]
