House angered by Lee’s RI Chinese commentsAbdul Khalik, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Apologise? But LKY was defending his race (Malaysiakini) “Amid calls from Umno leaders for Singapore’s Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew to apologise for his remarks that the Chinese minority in Malaysia and Indonesia are systematically marginalised, Lee may want to rely on the premise that ‘there is no need to apologise if I am defending my race.’

Malaysian Leaders in self-denial mode (M’siakini)I refer to malaysiakini’s Malaysian leaders: Kuan Yew must apologise.”


The new taboo (Kitana) “I was talking to a friend, who was telling me about a person he was working for at his new job in the government service. Apparently, this person – his superior – was not a very good boss; to put it lightly. He made my friend and his team do most of the work that he himself was supposed to do, and he just sat back and relaxed. With a naggy compulsion in the back of my mind, I asked my friend the dreaded question: “Is he a scholar?””
