What am I first? What defines me?

Earlier this month (or late last month), one of the biggest topics around town was the issue of our Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin declaring himself as Malay first. This topic has been making its rounds in Parliament for a couple of weeks by then, I believe on March 18, DAP stalwart Lim […]

Where did Malaysians learn to be so biadap?
