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.)

Hetty Koes's song brought back memories

Was at Amcorp Mall last Sunday with wife and daughter, browsing through what were on offer at the flea market stalls. Then I was on a level where a friend, Boey, used to play erhu, violin or lately, 'guitarlele' (a cross between guitar and ukulele: you play it like a guitar but it sounds like a ukulele), in accompaniment to a song. This time, I was attracted by a familiar tune, 'Kau yang sangat ku sayang' by Hetty Koes. It was in the 80s when I was given a cassette tape with Hetty's songs and I used to listen to it while driving from KL to BG and back. But this is the only song I am familiar with...


Kau yang sangat ku sayang

Kerna kau tak pernah manja

Anggun peribadi mu tenang diwajah mu

Tiadanya menandingimu


Kau yang sangat ku sayang
Kerna kau pria pendiam
Wajah mu yang tampan
Senyummu menawan
Hati ini mengagumimu


Ku menghayal bila saat nanti
Hidup bersama mu
Hanya engkau teman dalam duka
Penghibur derita
Kepadamu aku lah yang manja
Dengarkan lah sayang
Ku pandang potret mu
Didalam kamar tersenyum pada ku

Kau yang sangat ku sayang
Kerna kau pria pendiam
Wajah mu yang tampan
Senyummu menawan
Hati ini mengagumimu

Ku menghayal bila saat nanti
Hidup bersama mu
Hanya engkau teman dalam duka
Penghibur derita
Kepadamu aku lah yang manja
Dengarkan lah sayang
Ku pandang potret mu
Didalam kamar tersenyum pada ku

Ku menghayal bila saat nanti
Hidup bersama mu
Hanya engkau teman dalam duka
Penghibur derita
Kepadamu aku lah yang manja
Dengarkan lah sayang
Ku pandang potret mu
Didalam kamar tersenyum pada ku

Ku menghayal bila saat nanti
Hidup bersama mu
Hanya engkau teman dalam duka
Penghibur derita (fade)
