Ah, Kee Thuan Chye's new book!

March 8, The Day Malaysia Woke Up. While you're waiting for Sept 16 to happen (or to not happen), why not grab a copy of this book for a seasoned journalist's perspective on Malaysia's contemporary history of politics and events that are leading us to 16/9. Do read Sharon Bakar's take on this book, here.

I last met Thuan Chye on the opening night of Swordfish in Singapore early August. It was worth the drive in the rain all the way from KL!

p.s. Haven't read his tribute to the late Pak Samad? Click here.

    Ha!ha!he!he! everyone has awoken up except umno, PM and Najib. When the world has gone passed them, they may wake up and wonder what happened to umno.

    I have been thinking a lot about the saga in 'The Concubine and the Swordfish' and what is happening here in Malaysia. We hear a lot about the erosion of Malay's rights from politicians but how about the erosion of Malay's culture by them? w9

    Tarikh 16 September nampaknya sudah mereka anjak sedikit. Anjak lagi, nanti anjak punya anjak, sampai tahun depan2 pun tak habis. Tahniah PKR.hehe
