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

May 17, 2020


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 […]

Home fires : The 4 stages

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.” […]

Dear Muhyiddin

April 28, 2020


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 […]

Home fires : our mindset vs. the statistics

April 27, 2020


When you understand what are the main causes of home fires, then you may appreciate my concern that, as we all stay home during this ongoing MCO, home fire risk goes up several notches. Most people, though, including myself, until quite recently, have a false sense of security when it comes to the issue of […]

Our Rohingya brethren

April 27, 2020


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 […]

Home fires : the real risk within

April 25, 2020

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. […]

Desperately seeking…errr…me!

April 24, 2020


1984 to 1988, in London, England, reading law. Other than the first year, they were hard years. Second year, living on my own in Shepherd’s Bush, was probably the worst. Holding 2 jobs down, broke the last few days of every month and, worst of all, distracted away from my law studies by one question […]
