When I first watched the trailer of Prometheus some time last year, I had some reservations. It looked good, but not much was revealed about it. Now that I have watched it, I think it’s a really well made bad movie. I’ll try to give you a review without giving off too much about it’s storyline.Read More »Movie Review : Prometheus

I know the topic is now warm rather than hot, but as an observer at Bersih 3.0 I wanted to get the bigger picture before writing about the event.

If they were neutral parties, they will be accused of being pro government or pro opposition once the other side doesn’t like what they hear. Read More »Stop Lynas To Save Malaysia??!
I watched the news yesterday night. Our dear leader, Dr M has come out with a statement saying that free education will benefit the rich in particular.
I think he was referring to if higher education was free, the rich people not having to pay for University fees when they clearly can pay. He added “why should we help the rich, we should help the poor”.
