2 Interesting News

Online news portal Free Malaysia Today reported in their 12th January 2011 post that Karpal Singh had filed a suit against chief justice Zaki Tun Azman asking for an order of mandamus to direct the chief justice to respond to a letter of complaint Karpal had sent in regard to an alleged admission by the chief justice himself that the latter had bribed court officials while he was a lawyer.

Karpal was also reported to be seeking to have Zaki brought to the Judges Code of Ethics Tribunal.

If I am not mistaken, this is the first time that any Malaysian, let alone a practising lawyer in Malaysia, has brought a suit against a sitting chief justice.

But Karpal Singh is not called the top legal eagle of Malaysia and the Tiger of Jelutong for nothing.

If what Zaki Tun Azman, the top judge of the country, allegedly said is true then of course Malaysians are entitled to know the thruth.

Especially now that public confidence in the Malaysian judiciary and other institutions of the state, has plummetted.

Free Malaysia Today in another post of the same date, reported that the Prime Minister had rubbished Anwar's challenge to a public debate on the Malaysian economy.

Najib had said earlier in the local press, that Pakatan Rakyat's 100 day plan would bankrupt the country.

Anwar has therefore challenged the PM to a public debate on the economy.

I think this is a good opportunity for Najib to show that he is the right man for the country and not Anwar, by taking up Anwar's challenge.

Why miss up on an opportunity by blithely dismissing Anwar's challenge?

I am sure Malaysians would like know whom to choose to lead the country in the coming general elections and it would help if Najib accepts the challenge to debate with Anwar.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
