Colorful Parliament

After an OMG-it’s-Prof-Jomo-and-I-want-to-talk-to-him-and-I-want-to-shake-his-hand-
and-I-want-his-autograph-and-OMG-OMG-OMG-it’s-Prof-Jomo session, I was ready to hit my bed. On the way back just after midnight, I passed by the Parliament and oh boy, it is colorful.

Too colorful. Maybe whomever in charge of “lighting up” the Parliament should consider reducing the number of colors. That blue (or was it green?) light especially was too dull and dim that it looks terribly awful.

Anybody wanna do this in the middle of KL?

Inform MBKL if you do!

The vid was spotted at Pods & Blogs.

Heaven is probably flooded

Remember that blue sky?

That day seems so distance now.

Klang Gates Ridge scaled!

Before MBKL was established, I lamented about having never set foot on the Klang Gates Ridge.

What is the Klang Gates Ridge?

WWF Malaysia claims that the Ridge is the longest Quartz Ridge in the world. Judging how long the Ridge stretches across the eastern horizon of Kuala Lumpur, I would not be surprised of it. The one shown in the picture above is just part of the whole Ridge.

And I was up there.

I think I kinda like climbing.

The Ridge is truly a natural division that separates nature from urbanity. On one side, buildings of Kuala Lumpur are racing with each other for the sky. On the other side (the second picture), the Titiwangsa Range soars.

Berlin has a blue sky day but KL has it all year round (roughly)

Berlin claims to have the most beautiful sky in the whole wide world.

Well, KL would like to dispute that. Here’s why:

Now, a gathering for FAM

There will be a “gathering” at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium that will, hopefully kindly, request the president of the Football Association of Malaysia to step down today.

Today, meaning 6PM, July 18 2007.

Another gathering for Nat

I just got back from another vigil for Nat. Strictly, it was not a vigil but rather, more like a gathering of political parties. In a way, I prefer yesterday’s gathering better. Yesterday, in many ways was a gathering of friends. Today, it was a gathering of people from all over.

Boing Boing’d

Boing Boing cites Metroblogging KL as well as several of Nat and Eli’s blogs concerning the arrest. And blogged by Xeni Jardin no less! (Thanks Sean! You probably have a hand on this.)

So, welcome Boing Boing’s readers!

Readers might be interested in a blog ran by Nat’s sister as she provides the latest update from the ground. (Somebody said Nat’s sister is beautiful and I am in no position to doubt that after meeting her last night).

p/s – there is a mistake in the Boing Boing’s post. Nat is not charged under ISA.

Candlelight vigil for Nat

There will be a candlelight vigil for Nat tonight at 2000 outside of the police IPD (Ibu Pejabat Daerah; District HQ) Dang Wangi in Kuala Lumpur.

Let us show some support for Nat.

The Sunday after

News of Nat’s detention and the subsequent 4-day remand has hit the mainstream media today. The Star reports that his arrest is related to “police case files on detainees or suspects investigated under the Emergency Ordinance.

KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) information bureau staff Nathaniel Tan, 27, has been remanded for four days under the Official secrets Act (OSA).

Tan, who is also secretary of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s Foundation for Future, is believed to been remanded under the Section 8 of the OSA over allegations that he had documents linked to Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Johari Baharom’s alleged involvement in corruption. [Nathaniel Tan remanded for four days under OSA. The Star. July 14 2007]

Initially, the Star reported that the arrest is “believed to be in connection with a doctored picture of Deputy Prime Minister which was posted on the Internet.”
