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 appears 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

Not safe even in locked and latched 4-star hotel room


What Nurulhuda Mansor posted in her Facebook page on January 16, which was forwarded to me by my friend:

"...Yesterday morning, I woke up at 6.00 am in my hotel room. Because I am obsessed with my phone, I will always grab it the moment I wake up to check messages etc. The phone was supposed to be next to my pillow, charging. I last spoke on the phone with my husband at 2.00 am. The phone was not there. I looked under the blanket and it was still not there. I grabbed my handbag, wanting to take my office blackberry to miscall my Samsung phone.

As soon as I opened my handbag, I saw that my purse was open. I noticed all my cash (except for RM1 notes) were missing. I looked for my blackberry and it was also not in my handbag. It immediately struck me that someone had stolen my phone (Samsung Note), my office phone (Blackberry), and all my cash (about RM250) in my locked hotel room (that could only be accessed with the hotel card) with the door latch ON while I was asleep!! Though I was really relieved to see my car keys still in my handbag. I got out of bed to the door and saw that the door latch was open. I knew immediately that someone had gone into my room because I was very very sure I had closed the door latch the night before. This has always been an intuitive habit in hotels, knowing I was sleeping alone...."

Very good idea! I cannot remember exactly, but I came across a suggestion of using hotel towel to prevent people from opening the latch from outside.

This is terrible. She could have been molested or worse. She should make a police report and send a copy to the Ministry of Tourism for action.

She made a police report. According to her post in FB (you can read her post in full if you log in): "As this case is still pending police criminal investigation, I cannot share much but I feel obligated to warn you all of my experience!"

From my experience , this can

only happen in kota Kinabalu

where call girls can enter hotel

room lobby even in 5 star hotels

asking if I want sex in the early

hours of the morning.
