Messy, Dirty But Necessary

(PKR cannot be a one-man-show. At end of the day, it has to rely on committees, rules and procedures.

The Highway Promise

It certainly looks like a highway robbery than a sincere promise to maintain the highway toll rates

(We are ok with highways and highway toll booths but we are pissed off with the one sided agreement and the huge compensation being paid from the tax payers’ pockets. Image source: http://travelerfolio.com)

During the recent Budget 2011, Najib made this bold statement that the toll rates on four highways owned by PLUS Expressways Berhad (other highway operators, apa macam?)… [Click to read the rest] “The Highway Promise”

Childhood

(The old neighbourhood – today Institut Megatech stands on its ground and the uncle’s barbershop used to be where Intec College now stands.  The only thing that has not changed in the last 40 years is the Shell Petrol Station.

Anti Piracy Pirates

One of the best jokes around…

As you all know Rajini’s latest movie – Enthiran has been released (read the seedy review here).

It has been said that this is one of the most expensive movie to be produced by the Indians. And due to this and to the main actor’s die hard fans, there seems to be a dedicated effort to stamp out piracy.… [Click to read the rest] “Anti Piracy Pirates”

(Source)

To many of the younger generations like me, Dr M was THE best Prime Minister todate (we did not “experience” Malaysia under the previous Prime Ministers although some would say Tunku Abdul Rahman’s time was still best of all).… [Click to read the rest] “Quote of the Day: Statesman”

As an adult, I guess one of the “wisest” things that I have done in my life related to reading & books is to buy a proper book cabinet and set my own library.… [Click to read the rest] “Books 101: The Beauty of Reading And Building A Library”

Pasanga movie tamil

I used to hate Tamil movies, especially after the 1990s…

Ya, they had great music and if you throw in Sivaji Ganesan and Kamalahasan, great acting too but one thing I hated the most was the storyline – dumb and illogical.… [Click to read the rest] “Tamil Movie Review: Lovable, Sensible Pasanga 2009”
