Jalan di Terengganu Diperbesar Untuk Mercedes Benz

July 25, 2008


Jalan-jalan kampung di Terengganu bakal diperbesar bagi memuatkan kereta-kereta Mercedes yang baru dibeli pentadbiran eksekutif negeri itu. Jalan dan lorong-lorong kampung di Terengganu, yang rata-ratanya sempit dan penuh lubang, tidak lagi sesuai untuk digunakan setelah Menteri Besar Ahmad Said menggantikan kereta Proton Perdana kepada Mercedes Benz E200 Kompressor.

The Rosmah Saga: Soap Opera, Crime Drama or Thriller Gone Horribly Wrong?

In America, the mass media is saturated with juicy and often lurid details of their celebrities behaving badly. The public is constantly fed with daily news of drug overdose, public drunkenness and all-round debauchery that characterize the wild and crazy lives of the Hollywood glitterati.

UMNO: The Only Party That Is Consistent

March 17, 2008


There are many nasty things you could say about UMNO, and many have done so, but if there is one thing everybody would agree on, it is that this party has been very consistent. The United Malays National Organization is perhaps second only to George W. Bush in consistently delivering ridiculous statements to the unsuspecting […]

Penang UMNO Learns A Lesson

It hasn’t been a week since the crushing defeat of Barisan National in the Western corridor and already Penang UMNO, unfamiliar with defeat and hungry for power, has displayed the kind of rebellion one would more readily expect from a pampered baby denied his mother’s breast milk. In a politically suicidal move that at worst […]
