Dear Anwar

This will be short and to the point. On 22nd June, 2020, Free Malaysia Today reported you as saying : “Based on our experience, we cannot trust (him) 100%.” This distrust of Dr M is shared by many right-thinking Malaysians who only desire what is best for the nation. Myself included. He must never be […]

How many does it take to make a 3rd Force?

May 17, 2020

1

With modifications, I am re-hashing something I wrote 4 years ago. First, lets get definitions out of the way. The freedictionary explains the phrase “THIRD FORCE” to mean, amongst others, “one or more nations, political parties, or other organizations occupying an intermediate position between two other opposed forces”. Could we expand this to allow for individuals? Or just 1? Seriously, I’ve never needed numbers behind me to do what I believed to be right. One […]

Dear Muhyiddin

God’s peace be with you. “This government may not be the government that you voted for”. Your own words. We got rid of UMNO and BN. You brought them back! And with that, has the old practice of huge chunks of allocations intended to uplift the lives of the most marginalised Malaysians through the DEB […]

The ‘Overbearing’ Maid

By Singa Terhormat ___________________________________________ I wish to share with you the story about a maid that I came across many, many years ago. I do not recall all the details but the gist of it is that It spelt out how a house-owner had hired a maid to help look after and manage his house. […]

Service above self

Editor’s note : I had said that during the currency of this ongoing MCO, I would not write on politics so as not to distract our focus on the pandemic. Goings-on in the backdoor government left me pissed off, and I was going to write. Before I did, Singa Terhormat did. His thoughts are below. […]

Dear Muhyiddin

God’s peace be with you. I caught your Covid-19 stimulus package press conference on TV the other day. A good package? I am hopeless with all the figures bandied about, and there are experts aplenty bisecting and dissecting the RM250b package, so I wont even go there. I will trust Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj in his […]

Deep state thwarted, perchance?

January 10, 2020

Deep state : an alleged secret network of especially nonelected government officials and sometimes private entities (as in the financial services and defense industries) operating extralegally to influence and enact government policy – online Merriam-Webster dictionary MACC’s expose of the wire-tapped recordings on Wednesday has had many people training their guns on the Chief Commissioner.

Given our history, should we, again, leave uplifting the lives of our poorest to the politicians?

September 14, 2018

I met up with my sifu last Tuesday. Asked him to help me out with a question. On hindsight, I should have tossed 2 questions at him. My question : how much have the BN governments allocated towards poverty eradication efforts? The question I ought to have asked but did not : how much was […]

Restore public confidence in the judiciary by serving old wine in new bottles?

June 15, 2018

I want to start this post by reproducing what I have written in an earlier post. That post was written on 23rd November, 2010 : “…in the arena in which the gladiators of the law sought to right the wrongs of the land, one component was indispensable. The impartial judge. The judge who could rise […]

Zainun for AG? No thanks. And why are the others still around?

MP Ramkarpal is reported in the media today as suggesting Zainun Ali be appointed the next AG. Dont be misled by her decision in the Indira Gandhi case. I have appeared before her in the Court of Appeal. Please appoint someone who will uncompromisingly honour the oath of the office to  preserve, protect and defend the […]
