Riding the winds of change
The people sought to make political changes in GE14 to allow them to pursue better opportunities. So, heads up to Pakatan Harapan.
The persistent pipe dream
It’s been more than six decades since our independence, yet, more than ever, some politicians continue to wield the race and religion cards to divide us.
For the love of the nation
IT’S time for Malaysia to change its narrative. For a start, our leaders must end the hyperbole of how the previous Barisan Nasional government stripped and looted the country’s wealth.
Time of the season
A political year will soon be up, so the honeymoon’s truly over. How has New Malaysia’s government fared? With the indiscretions rolling out, that’s coffee shop talk right now.
Monkey off its back
To avoid slipping on the proverbial banana skin by losing out on ecotourism revenue, Tourism Malaysia must first put its best foot forward.
Eight is (just about) enough
There are stereotypical people and situations. For the CNY holidays, it’s best to stay clear of familiarity breeding contempt.
Feeling lost in Penang
Its decline has been progressive, but Penang’s Hokkien heritage is at its closest to death’s door as 2019 takes off.
Call of the king
There is a first for everything it seems, even for a monarch to step down and a new one to be elected.
Rules for the Rulers
The king of Malaysia oversees a variety of things in the country, but his sovereignty isn’t without question.
Greener on the other side
When in doubt, hop to the most inviting place. While that might be a mantra for frogs, politicians have also taken a fancy to this escape plan.
A touch of class
Class and culture can’t be bought at online malls or picked up from the nearest grocer, unfortunately. You either have it or you don’t.
Calling the kettle black
MALAYSIANS are a very strange lot. Not all of us, mind you, but a big portion of us seem to find it easy to contradict our own behaviour and thoughts.
