WEEK IN REVIEW (ending 19th August)|
Turn Tun Turn
Fans of Indira Gandhi, Lee Kuan Yew, George Bush
Sr and Blake Carrington, rejoice! The sons of Tun Ling Liong Sik, (future Tun)
Lim Keng Yaik and Tun Mahathir Mohamad are all in the bandwagon. The other band
of (cousin) brothers, the sons of Tun Abdul Razak & Tun Hussien Onn already
have a headstart; they got in earlier. And Lim Kit Siang can't complain either.
But seriously guys, we are not ready for reruns. Not so soon at least. Besides,
Go Gol & Gincu
The night after the premier
of Gol & Gincu, Patrick Teoh
asked me what I thought of the movie. I told him it was like a perfect relationship,
you have a good time, go home and don't think about it anymore. Isn't that wonderful?
The movie isn't original and a sponsor is featured every 0.065 second, but I still
urge you to go see it this weekend.
It is no tear-jerker but if you know
the inside story, you too will weep. It is a miracle an independent film such
as this makes it to our big screens. The local film industry is monopolised by
an inner circle of datuks and cohorts in high places. They put up every barrier
they can think of whenever a genuine Malaysian film - with credible acting, sound,
cinematography and script - comes along and rattle their comfy cocoon.
50 Reasons To Shop at E-Bay
Another datukship is possibly up
for sale at E-Bay. A Datuk was ordered to pay damages amounting to a few
million ringgit to another datuk.
The Smoke Carpet
Sumatra Forest Burning Festival has been staged successfully for over
a decade now. Next year it probably will be bigger and better, I'm sure. Like
all imported stuff; it generates more appeal. Swept under it, are yesterday's
newsmakers. Anyone remember the flyover
that broke in two, the Billionaire's Club (aka AP holders) or the teapot
Little Girl In Camouflage
Employers everywhere are getting
jittery over blogging employees. This week saw yet another 'takedown'.
The National Service providers are probably not aware their every comical move
is logged. But then, this is where weblogs shine and who better to keep a faithful
digital diary than our savvy blogger Jolene.
Her hilarious and microscopic account should help parents breathe easier. This
season's biological problem is acne (apparently) and NOT pregnancies like the
The Absent Minded Zookeeper
Normally, I wouldn't visit
a zoo that absent-mindedly locks tigers out of their enclosure but hey, it's the
Melaka Zoo we're talking about. Good thing for the public, the stranded animal
is a cute cub and good thing for her, there isn't a Chinese Restoran next door.
Wandering around the dark and sprawling grounds
of the new Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC),
I got spooked by a ghost perched on a cage. Last night, coincidentally, was the
official climax of the Chinese Ghost Month.
On closer inspection, the
ghost turned out to be the lovely Su
Ling (The Sunday Star's dance writer) and the cage, a designer wire mesh
sofa. Just the thing the Melaka Zoo needs. If your mutt likes humping legs, this
too should do the trick when there are guests in the house.
