By Jayanath Appudurai This Malaysia Day we have nothing to crow about! Tired of the same old toxic ‘R&R’ politics that paralyses our Nation. Even more tired of the pundits, commentators and netizens pontificating and recycling the negativity and toxicity that we really do not need! And I really do not care who helms the […]

Please, NSK, may I buy some food?

February 12, 2021


Last March, when we were hit with the first MCO, starting on the 18th, I was very gratified with the SOP adopted by NSK, Brem Mall. Warga emas were given priority to go in and do their grocery shopping. Nice. This evening, I headed to NSK, Brem Mall to get some foodstuff. Scanned and took […]

By Jayanath Appudurai ______________________________ Staring at a blank page, No words to pen. The pain is too deep, To express! Decades of hopeful struggle, Ending in a nightmare.

Crime does not pay? It does, lah!

May 14, 2020


If you’re set on crime as your vocation, though, remember. Big time. If you’re going to steal, steal big time. Going to wash money ( launder, lah ), wash big time. Dont be jaguh kampung! Take kow kow! If its big enough, and you get caught, can work it out, one. Return half, and go […]

May 8, 2020


I did the home fire safety live stream on 5th May. First time ever. There were technical glitches, but I survived, thanks to a technical team that stood by me.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
