Tilda on my mind

Since purchasing Tilda's 'Sew Pretty Homestyle', I was in love at first browse! I think I've gone over the edge :p

I got these pretty pastel like fabrics from Lapp-Elisa. Elisabeth the proprietor is a super nice lady.

And these I got today at Yee's. It was strictly a Tilda trip :) Made even more enjoyable with the company of my fellow stashers!

Bagsa Malaysia (Malaysian Race)

Anwar Ibrahim said: ‘Anak Melayu, anak kita, anak Cina anak kita, anak India, pun anak kita. Mengapa harus kita bezakan?”

Translated to English he says, "A Malay child is our child, a Chinese child is our child, an Indian child is also our child. Why is there a need for us to differentiate?"

What a beautiful world this would be ... transcending global divides ... be still my beating heart ...

I wait eagerly for the day to come where we Malaysians become one race, all united with a common vision. And I can see and feel that it will happen very soon. I believe that Malaysia is on the cusp of true democracy under the leadership of Anwar Ibrahim. If you have not read this piece of precious writing by Haris Ibrahim, I implore that you do. It's an open letter to Anwar. If you are a Malaysian I assure you, you'll be moved.

For those who have not registered with the Online Petition to the king with regards to the appointment of the new Chief Justice in mid October please read the cause and join in the petition if you feel strongly against the appointment and wish to see an independent judiciary.

Towards Ketuanan Rakyat (People's Supremacy)!!

Sleeping Mask

My second Tilda project ... woo hoo I am on the run :) It's for my sis.

It's not really quilted as it does not go through all the layers, just the top and cotton batting were back-stitched. I will try to use my walking foot for the next one. This was very easy and fast to do up.

Lawan Tetap Lawan

This is Anwar Ibrahim's constant signature cry to 'fight keep on fighting'. The ruling government is hell bent to stop him. I am sure dear readers that you are aware of the political treachery that is going on in my/our country Malaysia. You must think that we are a country full of sodomites. I am so ashamed. Clearly to the majority of Malaysians, we all know that these accusations are all trumped up, all politically motivated.

There are so many indications of the judiciary being manipulated by the executive, in fact there has been a Royal Commission and proven so. Corruption is rampant, starting from the highest echelons of power. Abuse of power of the police is widespread. Economy stability is dwindling. Government control of the mainstream media is so glaring. Are we going the path of a rogue nation? Is Malaysia a Zimbabwe or a Myanmar in the making?

We implore to the goodness of our King to help us. If you are a Malaysian citizen and feel strongly about the current state of the judiciary, please sign the petition to the King here. I have.

This just got out on the net. A dance-rock video by Asian DJ Duo, Zen T & DJ Satori C. A rightly tribute supporting the struggles of Anwar Ibrahim. Pump up the volume for an adrenalin filled effect! :) And my all time hero Mahatma Gandhi is featured too! I think it is coool!

In the final clip Anwar says 'Malaysians are intelligent. Malays are powerful, Chinese are powerful, Indians are Makhal Sakti!! (people power in Tamil). Oh ... what a beautiful vision!

If you have some time you might want to watch this video with clips of Anwar Ibrahim to the tune of My Sacrifice by Creed. His work, his reformation agenda, his family, his beating while in police custody by none other than the top-brass himself the then Inspector General of Police. Such tragedy!

Anwar Ibrahim is Malaysia's Prime Minister in waiting. He is my Prime Minister.
