Disadvantaged Malay Muslim

An interesting letter in Malaysiakini:-

Malaysian society has become a backward society. Instead of progressing, we have digressed tremendously. We have become a country of people afraid to have ideas, afraid to explore possibilities, afraid to look beyond the obvious, afraid to offend, afraid to have friends of all races, in summary…afraid to live.

The Malayan U Boat – Last Part

“Professor, what are you doing” asked the captain, shocked but was not surprised. He was trembling with fear but he did not show it to the professor.

When he first heard that a professor was the saboteur, his first thought of suspects has been Professor Z. He has been acting rather aggressively since the beginning of the mission.… [Click to read the rest] “The Malayan U Boat – Last Part”

(No offence to any ladies and any non beer drinking Malaysians out there)

I got this joke titled “Girl vs Beer” via the email from a friend of mine today. I guess a lot of them were upset with the idea of a blanket ban on beers (which luckily did not materialise):-

The Malayan U Boat Part 22

The captain was in his quarters when Ernst walked in.

“Tough decision to make, captain?” said Ernst as he sat beside the captain who was looking at the photo of his family.

“Yes Ernst, we are at the crossroads – do we forgo the safety of the crew for the sake of the mission and making sure that the discovery of the century does not fall into our Axis partner or forgo the mission for the safety of the crew?… [Click to read the rest] “The Malayan U Boat Part 22”
