TMR from today

This article appears in the latest issue of Focus, the business weekly. 

ToMoRrow's business news today. Yes, it's been a whiile but I have decided that it's a good time to come back - one more time - to the "dying" print industry.  
Why The Malaysian Reserve?
Late 2006 when they were planning to start another business daily, they approached me for my ten sen's worth. The plan was for me to join TMR back then but another newspaper got to me first. I mean, another newspaper started a legal proceeding against me and my blog (this was Jan 2007) and we - the TMR chaps and I - kinda decided that it was best to go our own ways until things have settled down. Well, things have settled down. Kinda.
My role as Adviser at TMR starts today.

    Big mistake. Other than his usual lies propagated from his rotten teeth, this rocky man will not contribute anything constructive.

    Salam Datuk,

    Congratulations on your appointment. Can you please let the TMR people know that it is quite hard to get TMR from local newstands? I used to read the edge, which can be easily purchased but has stop doing so for a year now prior to GE13, because its inane, double-standard content, and then during the YTL-Johor scandal. TMR is not easy to get and the funny thing, I cannot even get it from MPH. Why? Please help, thanks.

  9. Is it the fault of Singapore when their currency is worth almost 3 times more than Malaysia ?
