Please do, Anil. Books of this nature like the ones by Kee Thuan Chye should be read by all concerned Malaysians, especially by those so-called “educated” ones who are still groping in the dark about what is going on around them. I know of one husband-and-wife team of teachers,who told me that they have no choice but to vote for the government lest they lose their pension! There are a lot of such people in our midst, unfortunately.

Vernacular education is under threat with the PPPM (New Education Blueprint) as the over-emphasis of BM at primary school level will dilute the learning of mother tongue languages at vernacular schools. Already the rankings of our local universities are pathetic and it ill get worse as UiTM is focusing on quantity, not quality in coming years to boost intake of bumiputeras.

stupid for BN not to recognise the growing importance of Chinese language when China is becoming an economic power.


I am one of many Chinese Muslims who sent their children to study Mandarin at Chinese vernacular school as the quality of education is better, and the environment is conducive for learning, unlike the national schools.


Both my daughters are in Chinese primary school for the same reason as Azri.
They improve their command of Mandarin by watching the Chinese TV shows.
They cold both speak good Mandarin and some Hokkien.

ps: I am not happy that BN is trying to bully Chin Woo school by threatening to take away their land for building a Warisan Restoran.

A malay restaurant has higher importance than a Chinese school?

Why must Chin Woo school give up the land for the restaurant?

It makes more sense to have the restaurant in Kampung Baru to bring tourists to the malay enclave.

Where is the spirit of 1Malaysia?


Another book to buy is ‘Tiger of Jelutong’ – tales of fearless Karpal Singh.
I have just bought it at Popular book store.
Perhaps Anil can also provide a review for readers?

Another “must read” book from the pen of one of Malaysia’s most well-known writers. Thuan Chye always speaks the truth and dares to speak the truth, hence he is more than qualified to use the word “bullshit” so freely and without fear. I look forward to reading his latest work.
