August 2015

I see that I have not been blogging much lately. My last post was a few days after my birthday, which was over a month ago.


Assuntarians in Melbourne Get Together

       Assuntarians in Melbourne Get Together


A bunch of us Assunta Secondary School girls got together for dinner. ALL of us in the photo are from the same year and all but one live in Melbourne now. These are the ones who could make it. It is a big school — our batch had about 400 students — and we have ended up all over the world.

The theme for the night was — in case you missed it — yellow. This was to show solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Bersih 4.0 rally.

There were Bersih rallies all over the world.

It’s kind of sad to think that we need a rally for  ‘free, clean and fair elections’. In a democratic country, shouldn’t that be a given?

Not sure how much news coverage this event raised globally.

Today, Malaysia celebrates 58 years of independence. She is not in good shape.

She is classified as a “Newly Developed Country” unlike her southern neighbour Singapore which has been a developed country for long time now.

The economy is in the gutter. Right now, the exchange rate is about RM4.00 to US$1.00.

There is damning evidence which shows the Prime Minister’s corruption, but instead of stepping down, he reshuffles his Cabinet.


Happy Merdeka Day, Malaysia!
