IT’S almost certain that the attempt by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to push for the implementation of hudud laws in Kelantan, via a private member’s bill, will not see the light of day in the current session of Parliament. The word in Putrajaya is that Hadi will be told that the Dewan Rakyat is busy with other more urgent matters including several other bills in the current one-month session which ends on April 9.

  • Beware of criticising Chinese tourist - Regional | The Star Online

    BANGKOK: As the battle over the behaviour of Chinese tourists rages on Thai social media, one combatant has come away with tears in her eyes. Pin-up model Duangjai “Jha” Phichitamphon found herself at the centre of a controversy last week after a video of her criticising Chinese tourists went viral. Jha recorded the video at the airport in Jeju, South Korea, where unruly Chinese tourists pushed past her and other polite Thais in what up until then had been an orderly queue at the tax refund counter. Being jostled left and right, Jha’s temper rises as the video goes on and her language becomes increasingly impolite.

  • Mourning a great leader - Legally Speaking | The Star Online

    Spontaneous and emotional outpouring of grief by Singaporeans is indeed a testament to Lee Kuan Yew’s extraordinary achievement in creating a united nation out of a divided, polyglot, multi-racial and multi-religious population. THE fact that today our Yang di-Pertuan Agong will represent Malaysia at Lee Kuan Yew’s funeral – an epochal event in the history of Singapore – speaks volumes of the island’s founding father as the greatest statesman in South-East Asia. In fact, President Richard Nixon held him up as a leader of similar stature as Winston Churchill. Most importantly, Lee was also instrumental in the formation of Malaysia and hence he and a generation of Singaporeans were once, albeit briefly, Malaysians between 1963 and 1965.

  • Insight - Modi's popularity in rural India punctured by discontent, suicides - World | The Star Online

    Over a dozen debt-laden farmers have committed suicide in recent weeks in India, and discontent in many rural areas against government policies is turning into anger against Prime Minister Narendra Modi less than a year after he swept into office. Unseasonal storms have badly damaged the winter crop in large parts of the fertile northern plains, most likely contributing to the suicides, and villagers have blamed Modi for not stepping in to help the distressed farmers or ensuring that crop prices remained stable. The farmer suicides in India's most politically sensitive region are the latest in several setbacks for Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is hoping to consolidate power by winning local elections in large, predominantly rural states over the next two years.

  • Crash co-pilot told ex ‘everyone will know my name’ — Report – BorneoPost Online | Borneo , Malaysia, Sarawak Daily News | Largest English Daily In Borneo

    DUESSELDORF, Germany: The Germanwings co-pilot who crashed his Airbus in the French Alps, killing all 150 aboard, told his ex-girlfriend that “one day everyone will know my name”, according to German newspaper Bild. The black box voice recorder indicates that Lubitz, 27, locked his captain out of the cockpit on Tuesday and deliberately flew Flight 4U 9525 into a mountainside, French officials say, in what appears to have been a case of suicide and mass killing. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that all the signs were “pointing towards an act that we can’t describe: criminal, crazy, suicidal”. German prosecutors revealed that searches of Lubitz’s homes netted “medical documents that suggest an existing illness and appropriate medical treatment”, including ‘torn-up and current sick leave notes, among them one covering the day of the crash’.

The rice will be liberally mixed with your favourite type of curry, which you chose.
