  • Portuguese folk sidelined by MelakaGateway project
  • Michael Singho | Today 7:25AM
  • The upcoming island concept MelakaGateway project lies smack in front of our Portuguese Settlement. It is an off-shore development that would involve a massive 600 acre reclamation of the sea fronting the Portuguese Settlement and its neighbouring areas. The impact and effects on the eco-system, the environment, the marine life, its spawning grounds and habitat, the tidal and mud/sand siltation patterns will of course be enormous.

  • JD Lovrenciear | Oct 22, 2014 10:46AM
  • The world is all too familiar with the war on terror today. The rude awakening on that fateful day of ‘Ground Zero’, and the unending acts of terrorism since the times of Osama bin Laden have placed the borders around the globe on heightened watch.

  • I decided to take a break from the socioeconomics involved in Budget 2015 in order to look at just the social issues for once. And honestly, it was a huge mistake on my part.

  • The historical truth about ‘pendatang’ in Malaysia
  • Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi | Oct 21, 2014 12:56PM
  • I refer to the recent controversy pertaining to the comment made by Tan Lai Soon, a Gerakan delegate, that the Malays too were “pendatang” (immigrants). What may shock the Gerakan leadership, which decided to suspend him in haste due to reasons best known to them, is that there is some historical truth to his assertion. What may also shock many others is the fact that in 1941, there were more Chinese (43 percent) than Malays (41 percent) in Malaya.

  • Of a cute seal and sealed determination
  • Azlan Abdul Razak | Oct 20, 2014 12:39PM
  • When I was a knee-high to a grasshopper, growing up in a typical Malay family, to me, meant knowing how snow actually looked like only by way of watching ‘Home Alone’ repeatedly when Christmas was approaching in December. It was the time of the year when all strict rules on reading and memorising tables became slightly relaxed.

  • Congratulations, Nancy Shukri
  • Ravinder Singh | Oct 19, 2014 7:30PM
  • To believe Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nancy Shukri is to believe that it is the civil servants who call the shots, who decide how the county is to be run and that ministers are merely the mouthpieces of civil servants. But this is not believable, for people elect their representatives to run the country and ministers are from the ranks of these representatives in the ruling party.

  • The politics of blame and lies
  • Haden Hoo | Oct 17, 2014 5:47PM
  • Some politicians specialise in finger-pointing antics instead of walking the talk to bring to realisation election promises. A classic example would be Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng who recently accused Putrajaya of causing deliberate delays to projects ranging from foreign investment to infrastructure and raw water supply. Trends indicate that Lim Guan Eng loves to blame others when he cannot provide answers or solutions to certain issues.
