"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

The Power of Petitions

twitition - We Demand Apology from Adeline Chia (A STRAITS TIMES Reporter)

"If 5000 Fans Sign this Petition , Adeline Chia will have to Apologize to us"

twitition - Adeline Chia (STRAITS TIMES Reporter) Should Not Apologize!

"If 5001 People Sign this Petition, Adeline Chia should not apologize to anyone! Journalists, bloggers and YOU have an opinion! Why should one apologize for having an honest opinion about something?! ps: This is in response to this petition: http://twitition.com/b6gmf"

Sick of K-pop Cult

"In David Mitchell's 2004 novel Cloud Atlas, there is a futuristic segment set in Korea where a corpocracy rules the land. Advances in bioengineering have allowed human creatures called fabricants to be bred as workers. Physically, they are perfect specimens - with identical, beautiful faces but without any higher consciousness. When they run out the course of their productive lives, they are destroyed.

I found this section of the book particularly disturbing. It is a chilling study of how a capitalist totalitarian society exploits the weak and turns humans into robots for money. Everything looks happy on the surface but beneath, it's maggots and rotten meat.

Recently, I got a taste of Mitchell's dystopian view - at a K-pop fan meet of super-band TVXQ."

Adeline Chia's K-Pop column is actually the best of her Culture Vulture ones.
