I’m sitting here quite excited, waiting for the folks at The Star in Malaysia to update stories on the website, like a 5-year-old child. The reason for this is that today, my new column called ReWired will appear in Star2. ReWired is my first personal column in The Star since The Bangsar Boy (although, I […]
Just over six years ago, I was walking out of Menara Star after using (paying, mind you) the library to research for an article I was working on as a freelancer. I bumped into two people – Michael Aeria and Tan Ju-Eng – both of whom I had met 10 years before that, when I […]
Every year, on this day, I would write a blog post referring to an article I wrote in 2002 to mark the first anniversary of Sept 11 (this was my blog post from last year with some photos). It’s not that I’ve not had the time, or been too lazy to write something new, it’s […]

I suppose this story won’t be of any particular interest to regular readers of my blog – and those of you who have been following my story on Project Alpha – but for the 1million-odd readers of The Star, it might be! It took me great pains to write the article – for fear of […]
Today, my The Bangsar Boy article is about “public spaces”. Perhaps I didn’t explain it as clearly in my article but I was really referring to the academic definition of it, as opposed to something general like “any space accessible by the public”.
