Sadly our fighter of justice and constitutional protector has passed away yesterday morning in a car accident. After having served for more than 4 decades, Karpal Singh has finally laid to rest in peace. I still remember attending his ceramah in the rain at Han Chiang Chinese High School, Penang. There were thousands of people gathering at the school compound to hear all the opposition leaders speak before the 13th General Election. Although it was a short speech, it made my trip worth a thousand rain. Sitting on the wet padang, everyone was a family. Satu keluarga, sharing umbrellas and exchanging views. “Ini Kali-lah”, ”Ubah”, ”Refomasi”, …these were the popular lines that still echo in my ears, in my mind. It’s just too belittle to say that the great Karpal Singh as the one who lived and died in Malaysia but Karpal Singh the great who had lived, served, protected and died for all walks of Malaysians. That, my friend will be his justification. What saddens me more is the insensitivity of our younger generations of ultras taking the opportunity to bring up their so called ultra views at times like this. To me, that is the lowest of the low, tasteless and infantly-immature thinking. That can only come from a twisted, fictatious and closed-minded ideology. Friends, we have been independence since 1957 and our constitutional settlement called for a principle of equal citizenship for all races. Stay true to our constitution. Stay true to our fights. Protect our rights like what Karpal Singh has been fighting and protecting. Good bye Karpal, you will always be in our hearts and our minds to continue fighting and protecting for the love of our country and her citizens.

After 17 agonizing days of Search And Rescue (SAR) effort, finally with the confirmation from Britain’s Inmarsat and Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), the ill fated MH370′s last confirmed location was the Indian Ocean. The next effort is to find the airplane’s wreckage and black box. Until such efforts underway, there will be many speculations, theories and assumptions made by individual or groups. This will definitely increase the affected MH370′s family agony and it is best to give them ample of space for greifings. For whatever the reason, we should also give the investigators room and support for the on-going activities in the Indian Ocean. The suspected location of where MH370 is about 1,500 miles South West of Perth. Until the black box and wreckage is found, the only thing we can do now is to support the family of lost ones on flight MH370 by giving them space. Only time will heal the pain and have a full closure to the ill fated flight.
After opening for almost a week, the 2nd Penang Bridge does not seem to be attracting new uses. I took the guys out for seafood across the Straits today for lunch and still make it back on time. The difference of the new bridge besides being totally new is that it now has a dedicated motor lane and its the longest bridge in SEA. The unparallel design (ie. curvy) was ment to be a shock absorbnt in case of a tsunami or even an ath quake.
Atchung: an afternoon or even an evening drive on the bridge tends to make you very sleepy. Therefore, please bring something to chew or even songs to listen to when crossing the bridge.
For a bassist, Ashdown Bass Amp is not an unfamiliar brand. With hand wind to individual customers preference, that is why is why its’ ashdown bass amp from musicians friend tagline comes about. Its not about the price but the perfection you get when you own one of these amps.
The first song that I could play on the modulus bass guitar was Stand By Me by Ben E.King. It’s a simple strum taht goes well with campfires and one that keeps the nostalgic alive. There has been many remakes and the last by Sean Kingston. Well, one thing for sure, nothing beats the original song until now.
For a professional musician, in order to play the musical instrument professionally, they always invest in accessories to make their instrument sounds better. For a drummer, one of the accessory that can make a different ,is the drum rim. Hart Dynamics Drum Hoop Rim Trim is one of the best hoop rim rubber It is is a durable, removable and replaceable rubber rim for all Acudrums for low playing. The rim offers an enhanced quiet rim shot and cross stick operation.
My waze made me drove through Proton City and the road was goood…dual lane and no pot holes or patch up works (like the ones you’d find heading north). My recommendation will be a perfect road to burn your Lotus tyres. Well, this is the case when I took the inner trunk road to Tanjung Malim for the famous Yik Mun pau (ditanggung halal).
The kopi tiam (or coffee shop) is located at a T junction (on Jalan Slim River). You’ll not miss it and if you do, just ask around. The beauty about Yik Mun (just like Chung Kok kopitiam in Klang) is its true 1 Malaysia. Owned by a chinese and enjoyed by all races. No race card here. All good. The Hainanese fried noodle and Chicken Chop is also good besides Yik Mun’s chicken, beef, kya and bean pau’s (RM2/- pc). If you’re thinking of buying back, there are deep freee packs (RM20/pack). Also available is the freshly made kaya in jars.
Best spot after dusk to chillout is by the poolside of SkyBar at Traders Hotel. Go before 6pm to get the best of twilight with KLCC as your backdrop..walla. A memorable evening indeed:
After having stood for more than 17 years, it is still the most recognized landmark in KL. Nobody’s gonna give Cesar Pelli’s design a miss, especially if you’re a first timer to Malaysia.
