Time to join hands for Malaysia Day

The 57th National Day has seen Malaysians at loggerheads with arrests for sedition and some nasty words. It would be nice if we can join hands to celebrate Malaysia Day.

Why Not?

Malaysia, the one we knew

There are increasingly loud voices in our country that want to amplify our differences. How far we have deviated from when we cared for each other almost as one big family.

Why Not?

Many levels of mistrust

Multi-level marketing schemes have made many millionaires who live it up. But for every one of those success stories, there are many more who have lost their life’s savings.

Blow away the real smoke, please!

We have our heads in a cloud – a cloud of smoke. The annual haze from Indonesia and local open burning is choking us all. So, how much damage are the smokers going to do?

The killing of a club

Fans of football clubs all over the world love their turf. In Malaysia though, a state government seized the field that a club had tenderly nurtured and is now going for the kill – by grabbing the clubhouse and all other facilities club members have built.

Haunted - but not by the dead

Be scared. Be very scared. We are a haunted nation. There are spirits everywhere.

Why Not?

Finding MH370 – any which way

Out-of-this-world reporting and unusual theories have only added to the confusion surrounding the missing flight MH370.

Why Not?

Re-living a ferry tale

I’ll be off to Penang in a few days. I want to take a drive on the scenic new bridge. It’s free. No toll. Yes, I am your typical Penangite.

Why Not?

Religiously chasing hope

There’s a heatwave going around. There’s a hatewave, too — one that threatens to destroy the very fabric of our country.

Why Not?

A little love goes a long way

There’s little love in the air, judging by what has been happening in the country in recent days.
