My generation has failed to achieve the united, democratic, just, liberal and progressive Nation envisioned in the Rukunegara in 1970. We failed […]

May 3, 2020


In the live streaming on 5th May, I want to be able to fully focus on two key areas : why building fires today are more dangerous than ever before; and the Prevent, Prepare, Plan program that we have developed I hope that in this post, having earlier shared with you the Fire Triangle so […]

Home fires : Understanding fires

May 1, 2020


The statement, “My home is safe. Very little flammables in my home”, is a reflection of how little we understand the very nature of fire. I, too, suffered the same delusion two years ago. Until I saw Grenfell tower up in flames. Over the last two years, I have come to learn and understand just […]

Sacrifice? No, lah. Spring cleaning only

April 30, 2020


End November, last year, I moved home. For 10 years, I had resided in Taman Danau Desa, off Old Klang Road. That month, I set up my office along Jalan Ipoh. In the evenings, every time it rained, and it did most days, it took at least an hour to get back home. Was driving […]

The munafiq (hypocrite), responsibility and trust

April 30, 2020


Singa Terhormat _______________________________ During the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), there were those who professed to be Muslims when in fact they were but mere hypocrites. God revealed to the Prophet (pbuh): “And of mankind, there are some (hypocrites) who say: “We believe in Allâh and the Last Day” while in fact they believe not.” […]

April 27, 2020

Most people, though, including myself, until quite recently, have a false sense of security when it comes to the issue of […]

By Singa Terhormat ____________________________ In the face of calls from several sectors to repulse the Rohingya boat people and to deport those that are already here, one issue that needs to be resolved is who owns Malaysia. To some, the Malays are the rightful owners of Malaysia and that this land is Tanah Melayu. To […]

Comments Off on Home fires : the real risk within

Starting June, last year, I have been doing fire safety presentations and demos at least twice a month, either at my office, or in residential areas, commercial buildings, and industrial areas. I was due to host a presentation and demo at my office on 22nd March, 2020, but the MCO was imposed starting 18th March. […]

Taking on UMNO : Was it rewarding?

April 21, 2020


A lady who I have just gotten to know through Facebook asked me this question a little while ago. Was it rewarding, fighting UMNO? I asked in turn what she meant by “rewarding”? 7 minutes went by, then came this response,which I reproduce verbatim “Rewarding- something you never wanna stop whatever the odds. Gives you […]

April 12, 2020


If you suffer from type 2 diabetes, this post is for you. First, listen to Dr Jason Fung. A dietary disease. A lifestyle disorder. Reversible. What’s the normal, pre-diabetic, and diabetic blood sugar reading range? In my last post, I mentioned how, after the 14th GE, the diabetic type 2 condition I was suffering from […]
