Unmasking Najib

PROLOGUE Baggage too heavy for our new PM No one in living memory has ever had to drag so much unnecessary baggage along with him as Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak is doing on assuming the highest political office in Malaysia. My heart naturally goes out to the unfortunate man who has had to fend off, without a break, a relentless barrage of poison-tipped arrows all aimed at his personal and public integrity. I will not claim to know how he must feel because I would have absolutely no idea unless I were in his well-heeled shoes. And this would be most unlikely even in a million years. Under different and happier circumstances, he should be celebrating his moment of destiny, the attainment, albeit UMNO-style, of the greatest political prize of all. However, I doubt, in spite of his calm and controlled demeanour and composure that he is looking forward to the great day with even the same degree of enthusiasm that I manage to work up each morning for my breakfast.


Frankly I marvel at his ability to remain almost s unflappable (as the legendary Harold Macmillan, the British Tory prime minister of the "winds of change" fame) in such a difficult and dangerous situation.

Akulah Perempuan Muda Itu: Himpunan Puisi Pop Untuk Pari2 Terbuang

Buku Akulah Perempuan Muda itu adalah himpunan puisi seorang perempuan muda, Shaira Amira, yang lahir melalui konsepsi imakulat di sebuah negeri jauh satu waktu dulu. Puisi Poket adalah satu usaha untuk mengambalikan puisi kepada yang hak, yakni kau dan aku. Cukup kacip dan comel untuk disumbat di dalam kocek, ia sesuai dibawa dan dibaca di mana-mana; sewaktu menunggu kawwan karib di elarti, sewaktu naik elarti bersama kawan karib dan selepas menyalakan rokok di belukar bawah landasan elarti setelah habis berbincang bahasa tubuh dengan kawan karib. Puisi Poket 1: Akulah Perempuan Muda itu oleh Shaira Amira diterbitkan oleh Sang Freud Press.

Colour revolution has taken place in Central Asia, Central and Eastern Europe since 21st century. This type of revolution is a peaceful and non-violent movement that participated by the citizen.

Participants in the colour revolutions have used nonviolent resistance to protest against undemocratic governments and at the same time to advocate democracy in their country. These movements adopted a specific colour or flower as their symbol. So far these movements have been successful in Serbia, Georgia, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan.

Before the political tsunami occurred, Malaysia had experienced a few colour revolutions, such as yellow (Bersih), orange (Hindraf) and red (Jerit). These colour revolutions have prompted democracy development in Malaysia.
