I hate politics

Yes I do. And I never liked it. A lot of people have been asking why I chose to write on politics. Since I never really give a clear explanation on my intention of doing so, this might be the right time for me to explain. Long story short, I had to set up a … Continue reading

Finding ‘Malaysia’

The only time I can feel a truly ‘One Malaysia’ experience is when I had my once-a-month haircut at a salon near my hometown. It is a small salon, owned by a Chinese woman in her late 30s, with four Chinese and Indonesian workers. Albeit cramped, the salon attracts many customers. Sometimes I have to … Continue reading

Action speaks louder than words

I can’t help from reposting another article by Marina Mahathir. All this while I have been wondering why politicians from both side of the divide need to oppose each others’ ideas, even if it is beneficial for the country.
