It's Scary What Malaysia Has Come To

It's scary what some quarters will do nowadays if they don't or can't agree with you.

The Malaysian news portal The Malaysian Insider reported that on Monday night a group of some 600 Umno youth members on motor-cycles had turned out outside the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) HQ at Tropicana, P.J in a threatening manner ostensibly to protest against the alleged death threat UMNO Youth chief  Khairy Jamaluddin was said to have received.

The funny thing is why pick the PKR HQ? Did PKR send the alleged death threat against Khairy? Why would PKR do so? As things stand, PKR has their hands full trying to ward off all kinds of shenanigans  against their de facto leader Anwar that it is really unwise for PKR to do such a silly thing as sending a death threat against the UNMO Youth chief himself of all people!

Saifuddin Nasution, the PKR secretary-general, was quoted in the report to have said that the group were shouting threats to burn down the PKR HQ and to harm both Anwar and Ambiga (the chairperson of the Bershih2 rally) if they went ahead with the march for free and fair elections on July 9th.

Lokman Noor, executive committee member of UMNO Youth, was quoted as admitting that he did lead the group but denied that they threatened to burn down the PKR HQ.

We gave strict orders not to touch the headquarters. We are not like them.

What is really funny is Lokman's comment "We are not like them". Really, has PKR burned down any building?

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...
