GE14 2018: The Day Frustrated Malaysians Made History – Part 1

(Exercising my rights in this GE14. The queue to each voting stations – this particular queue where I was standing started from the staircase, all the way to the end, turns right forming another line, makes a U-Turn at the end and heads back to the left. At the end of this left is the classroom where the voting station is located.[Click to read the rest] “GE14 2018: The Day Frustrated Malaysians Made History – Part 1”

Missed a couple of weeks of blogging, though…

Some weeks ago (or maybe a month), I woke up with a severe pain on my left arm (funny thing was I was unable to pinpoint the exact spot of the pain) and feeling numb on couple of my fingers.… [Click to read the rest] “An Painful Encounter: The Pain In The Neck”

(The first night of the protest in Hong Kong was bad with tear gas & pepper spray on the protestors and this prompted a greater support for the rally but it is not something new here. Image source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk)

First is Waytha, after the hunger strike stunt that he pulled before the elections and got his MOU with Najib had now resigned – he rightfully deserved it, if you ask me.

Craziest Thing 2011 – A Prelude
