Support my work

I am a freelance writer/journalist. I am not a full-time employee with any media organisation.

This gives me the freedom to be independent and to report and analyse online – directly to you, sometimes going “live” for hours during major events.

This is essentially a reader-supported blog, which carries no commercial advertisements. If you appreciate my independent writing and blogging, you may want to consider making a small contribution. These contributions help to cover the costs of operating this website (webhosting and domain name rental), company searches, travel expenses as well as time spent on research and writing.

And as traffic has increased, I have had to ensure web-hosting servers are upgraded to meet the extra demand. Security concerns mean that during peak periods, extra measures are needed to minimise the likelihood of “Denial of Service” attacks that could knock down the servers.

So any contribution, no matter how big or small, is welcome! But so that there is no external influence or pressure, please no contributions from political parties, corporations or business interests.

Low-income readers, don’t worry about contributing. Just pass the word around or ‘like’ the page.

  1. One suggestion,
    Maybe you remove paypal unless main contributor pay by paypal.Another thing address should be remove during paying through credit card.

    rajraman.I don’t want to put my address that i am staying in squatter house.Ha2.PKNS in Selangor build high end houses.2.8billion reserve under their pillows.

    • Some people find it easier to use credit card, in which case paypal can be used.

      I think paypal requires the credit card billing address to verify the credit card.

  2. Anil,
    A bit of advice,
    You should remove the US dollar and put Ringgit Malaysia.If US dollar after convention on paypal or credit card the exchange rate high.

    rajraman.Got mood to support but i don’t want to pay exchange rate, I rather pay you.

  3. Hello,

  5. Anil Netto, pls. go and find out the list of land sold by Penang State Govt as freehold since 2008 . You will be amazed.

  6. I hope the gov can help the disable and the aged by opening good nursing homes and give jobs to single mothers to work in nursing homes .the gov has done so much for the people im sure DATUK NAJIB WILL HELP ME AND THE OTHER SINGLE MOTHERS LIKE ME .

  7. Anil
    Keep up the excellence.
    I think you can draw even more attention (and hopefully more contribution) focusing on Penang plights/issues as they seem to generate the most interests.
    All the best.

  8. Recently i read about the new major planned land reclaimation by E&O at the Tanjung Pinang foreshore. It would be great if you can help to provide more awareness on this project and how the various issues of Environmental Impact( siltatation…) and Economical benefit to the state… With the eastern forshore reclaimation the public has the ‘Jelutong Expressway’ to help alleviate the traffic congestion. With the 1st phase of the E&O reclaimation we did not see an obvious benefit… Perhaps a discussion can help to bring the transparency to a higher level…

  9. Hi Anil, I read your comment on disappearing hornbills in the Belum/LakeTemenggor. Just to let you know I saw some at Temenggor on 2 separate occasions when I was there about a month or so ago. Pls reply to my email address so I can talk more.
