Free RPK!

Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) is in Kamunting, detained under the draconian Internal Security Act. Detention without trial. He starts his 2 year (indefinite) sequester today. This is a great injustice. We the people of Malaysia will right this wrong ... however long it takes ...

Please take note, that they'll be a candelight vigil:

Venue : Dataran Merdeka , Kuala Lumpur

Date : Saturday, 27th September 2008 (RPK's Birthday)

You could send a card to him:

For Malaysia's sake free them!!

As you know, my/our country is in peril. The authorities have used an archaic, draconian law against Raja Petra Kamaruddin (social activist) , Teresa Kok (Member of Parliament) and the 5 leaders of Hindraf (Hindu Rights Action Front). The people know it is a desperate attempt by the Government to silence dissent. Even the Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim who was tasked to reform the judiaciary, has walked the talk by resigning from his post today. We need a new Government and we need Anwar Ibrahim to lead us!! Makkal Sakti!! (People Power)

Meeting Jess!

I was in Penang to meet Jess and Tony yesterday. I had a fabulous time, it was really good meeting Jess after 'speaking' to her all this 2 plus - 3 years! Jess was more than generous with all the stuff she got me. I've got to hand it to her, she really knows which buttons to press! :D I'm in heaven ...

Being an architectural buff I took some pics of houses from the pre-war period in Penang while on a Peranakan antique buying spree and looking for Little India!

Gift for Jess

The gift went ahead of me, as I didn't think it'll be a good idea lugging a box all the way to Penang :) She called me to say she received it! Can't wait to meet up and go for our long promised appoms and the wicked brew of teh-tarik! :)

A nest fell to the ground with 3 little baby birds in the nest. 2 of them were able to fly but unfortunately the last one was rather weak. My mom made a makeshift shelter with a large leaf in the garden for it, since it's been raining here for some days. The parents did not come and feed it even when it was calling for them incessantly and sadly it died in the next 2 days :(

This is another bird, a stitched bird :) Will be finishing it into a wall hanging.
