Sino - Singapore Relationship - Geopolitical Minefield

Last week, my eyes caught some news about a shipment of armoured personnel carriers from Taiwan to Singapore being seized by Hong Kong Port authority, Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board (HKMPB).  At first, the news did not trigger much of my attention as I am in midst of preparing for exam.

Permasalahan Rohingya di Myanmar

This is written by my friend, Rafe Rahmat of Kelab Peminat Sejarah Militer (KPSM). He has his own blog, Konflik & Sejarah Militer.  It is a recommended read.  For this article, I have compiled all 3 articles into one single source for future reference and reading.

Till We Remember 5th Pillar of Rukun Negara

In light of yesterday's hottest news in town, I feel I need to apologise to the unnamed local government enforcement agency which had decided to issue camouflage uniform to their personnel.

RMN - Difficult Times called for Difficult Measure

Yesterday was a crazy day.  I nearly missed my flight due to my mistake of wrongly reading the flight schedule.  I had to huff and puff all the way to the airport with only 5 minutes to spare.

Things We Fight For

Yesterday, I travelled back to Sarawak for a short break.  Fallen asleep as soon as my flight took off, I woke up about 15 minutes to arrival.

Antara Terompah, Semak Besar, Semak Junior, Yomama, Bapa Keli dan Keli Bukit Berlari


One of the reason kenapa Terompah menang adalah kerana ramai para veteran US sedang marah terhadap Keli.

Isu Benghazi menjadi duri dalam daging ikan keli kerana dianggap telah mengkhianati Duta AS ke Libya dan menyebabkan kematian Duta AS dan 2 orang veteran tentera AS yang bekerja dengan CIA sebagai PMC.

Jika dilihat, kes ini ada mirip dengan tuduhan sama dengan suami Keli Bukit Berlari. Tindakan suami Keli Bukit Berlari, iaitu Bapa Keli menghalang penghantaran AC130 dan Abrams ke Mogadishu disebut sebagai punca utama kegagalan operasi di Pasar Bakara. (Punca utama sebenar adalah pihak Task Force Ranger mengguna modus operandi sama untuk 8 serbuan sebelum itu).

Tetapi bukan itu isu yang kita nak kupas hari ini.

Week of the Fake News

Last week was a very interesting week.

The numbers of fake news was so high that it became a moot point to argue or disprove them. Funnier still that when you try to correct them, they responded saying they will try to confirm it with someone else.

LMS - Surprising US Noise

The news that Malaysia is buying naval ships to be designated as LMS from China has resulted in a surprisingly big reaction, of all countries, the United States. 

Seeing this news clipping where DS Hishammuddin gave his piece of mind almost caused me to fall of my chair laughing.

Why is the LMS required?

Yesterday, DAP MP for Kampar, Dr. Ko Chung Sen questioned the need for Malaysia to purchase 10 Littoral Mission Ships worth RM3 billion from China, as reported by MalaysiaKini.

The good doctor claimed that Najib administration does not care for the welfare of the rakyat as the purchases were made when the budget for Health Ministry was cut by 24%.  The good doctor claimed that the purchase of the 10 ships is not beneficial.

Thank you Doctor, for being very caring of the Rakyat's health.
