How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

What I bought from Amcorp Mall flea market


A well used antique Chinese nest of tables. It was MY decision, against my better half's opinion that they were made of chipboard. In fact they were made of solid wood but having signs of chipped off paint and lacquer.

Good buy, KS. There are such offers at AmCorp Mall if you are patient enough to look for them.

Yes. It is our favourite place during weekends if in PJ, even if just browsing through what were on offer. We know of one Penang antique dealer who used to set up stall there. But he found out Singapore is even more lucrative. There are a number of Malay dealers from Ipoh who found prices in PJ high enough to cover their travelling expenses as well as earning higher profits. So from our point of view, it is because of more variety and occasionally a chance to spot something we really like, though likely to be more expensive.
