PETALING JAYA, May 25 — The entire Election Commission (EC) must resign for failing to ensure the indelible ink worked in the May 5 general elections, several speakers said at a rally here tonight. Bersih co-chair Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan and PKR strategy chief Rafizl Ramli led the calls for the entire EC to step down after complaints about the indelible ink, introduced in Election 2013 to prevent double voting, could be easily washed off – Yahoo News [click to continue…]
While more freedom has been given, it is important to ensure that it is not abused and lines are not crossed. We are still a country governed by law and democracy – Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar. [click to continue…]
It is quite astounding to note that the President of Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, was courting for BWF President’s post not long ago before he decided to compromise with his Indonesia counterpart and accepted the offer to helm Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC) instead. While I’m not against any Malaysian being ambitious and take up bigger responsibilities, I do think Datuk Seri Nadzmi should pay more attention at home and put its affairs back in order.

While on the road, especially at the end of the day, I’d appreciate the deejays not playing songs that could lull me to sleep. I’m aware that even rock ballads can be hazardous to a tired driver, and broadway is a definite no for a ‘rock kapak’ guy like me. You can say that I’m allergic to broadway musicals and classical music (except ‘Hungarian Rhapsody’ by Queen - hehehe) which are favourites of my wife. The only consolation is I get to make fun of her choice while she makes me listen to them (‘to broaden my mind’ was her excuse) and so our pleasant arguments prevents me from dozing off while on the wheels.
But if I were to choose my songs while on the road, I would pick up-beat dance tempos. Not the repetitious disco remix, etc, but well, the interesting tunes. They are not of Adele‘s standard – they are of their own. So let’s not argue about quality, just what sounds good during a particular time and environment.
The above picture was taken from Daily Mail. The look in Ryan Giggs’ face says it all. It won’t be the same without Fergie. After all, most Manchester United players only know Sir Alex as their manager. The Red Devils haven’t change their manager since Bryan Robson was the captain of England. It’s been 27 years, 1,500 games in charge and 13 English titles to show. At one point, we thought that Sir Alex Ferguson will never leave Manchester United. He looks healthy, determined as ever and he has managed to build a new generation of championship-winning team at Old Trafford. Then, came the moment the fans dreaded the most. After guiding the club to a record 20th English league title, the Gaffer decided the time is right for him to go. Well, we should have anticipated that. Sir Alex has always wanted to bow out in style. He did just that and there’s nothing more appropriate for the fans to do expect applaud and thank him for those wonderful years. [click to continue…]
