Thoughts and opinions on Malaysian news, its people and its culture


A person of multi-ethnic origin, born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Unlike most of the locals that I have known, I truly feel that all of Malaysia’s people are my own. Insult a Malay, Indian, Chinese or the other ethnic groups and I will get angry, even though my origins do not include all those ethnic groups. However this attitude does not help since I have been rejected by countless people for not solely belonging to one of these main ethnic groups, for not being ‘pure’.

As a result of that rejection I feel a bit jaded. Can things change? Probably not in my lifetime. But for the time I have left I will try and contribute what I can to promoting change, not just in government, but in the mindset of our people.

I am a strong supporter of equal rights for all people and try to practise fairness in everything I do. I also try to write about news events in an impartial manner because I believe blind faith towards either the government or Opposition is foolish. As a friend once said in description of me, “AK57 tells it like it is.”

I’m going through a difficult period right now, which you can read about here.
