Danau Golf Club UKM

Danau Golf Club UKM

Danau Golf Club which is located within the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) campus in Bangi is one of my favourite golf courses where I regularly play, partly due to its affiliation with my home club Port Dickson Golf and Country Club. But there is another reason why I like to play at Danau. The buggy is allowed on the fairways, which is a big plus for not-so-fit golfer like me since Danau golf course has comparatively wide fairways compared to other courses I have played at. Danau Golf Club...

Kelantan Golf and Country Club

During my long Aidil Fitri holiday in Kota Bharu last week, I managed to play a round of golf with some holidaying friends at the Kelantan Golf and Country Club (KGCC) in Pengkalan Chepa. KGCC is quite a flat course compared to some other golf courses I have played at before but dont be fooled by the simplicity of the course layout. Even with relatively wide fairways, KGCC still offers a lot of good challenges even for regular players at KGCC. Almost all holes have some kind of water hazards to make...

Bagan Pinang by-election on Sunday 11th October 2009

Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) had announced that Bagan Pinang by-election will be held on 11th October 2009 where as the nomination day had been fixed on 3rd October 2009. One interesting fact to notice here, the by-election for Bagan Pinang, a BN-controlled state seat in Negeri Sembilan, had been fixed on a Sunday, which is a non-working day. Compare this upcoming by-election to previous few by-elections in PR-controlled seats. For example, the most recent Manik Urai by-election was held on a weekday....

Suhakam: A human right body that has no right

When Suruhanjaya Hak Asasi Manusia (Suhakam) was formed by the Malaysian Government 10 years ago, a lot of Malaysians were hopeful. Although many were sceptical on its ability to function due to its limited power, at least there was an organization which could help fight for human rights in Malaysia. 10 years after, Suhakam proved to be almost a total failure despite having done a lot during the last 10 years. It has done a lot of things but had achieved nothing. What a sorry state of a human right...

Internet: The last frontier to be conquered by BN?

After the last political tsunami that had caused the BN Government to lose dearly in several states, much had been said about how new online media had played its role in countering media propaganda launched by the power that be. Through the same controlled media, the government reluctantly admitted how it could not defend itself from the mainly pro-opposition blog sites that had sprawled like mushrooms after a rain. So much so, many BN politicians had jumped on to the band wagon and setup their own...

Teoh Beng Hock’s death: 1Malaysia Royal Commission another whitewash?

Pisang berbuah berkali-kali (literally, banana trees bear fruits many times) … that’s how I can describe the Royal Commission just announced by 1Malaysia Government in relation to Teoh Beng Hock’s death. Teoh Beng Hock, claimed to be only investigated as a witness by MACC, had mysteriously died while on the custody of MACC. After much pressure and ding-dong, the 1Malaysia Government finally bowed to pressure to establish a royal commission, but only making fool out of themselves. The...

MACC…. another failure for 1Malaysia?

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had again proved itself that it is not the anti-corruption body for 1Malaysia. But instead, MACC had proven itself as the anti-corruption body for 1Malaysia-Opposition. MACC, first, enthusiastically sprang into action on Selangor’s Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim over the maintenance of his personal car and the distribution of cows to mosques at his Bandar Tun Razak parliamentary constituency which immediately earned its reputation as Malaysian Anti...
