Dataran Merdeka not approved for Bersih 3.0 rally, Apr 28

The above image shows Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka/Independance Square) located in the KL city centre in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. As Dataran Merdeka is not being approved for the Bersih 3.0 rally tomorrow, KL mayor, Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail, has declared the square and all roads leading to it closed from 6am today to 6am on Sunday.

If you are a tourist in Kuala Lumpur over this weekend, if you are not too keen being caught up in crowds, the city is to be avoided tomorrow (Saturday). Instead, explore attractions outside of the city or perhaps go south to historical Malacca.

Bersih is advocating for free and fair polls for the country. Peaceful sit-in Bersih 3.0 rallies will be staged nationwide tomorrow, Dataran Merdeka being the venue for KL. In Ipoh, it will be at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Recreational Park, popularly known as the Polo Ground. The last rally, Bersih 2.0, was held on July 9 last year.

Indonesia, straddling a series of fault lines and volcanoes, is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire."

A giant quake off the country on Dec. 26, 2004, triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed 230,000 people, half of them in Indonesia's westernmost province of Aceh.

End of sports monopoly

Good news for sports fans in Malaysia.

From May 1, all free-to-air TV stations that do not have broadcasting rights for major sporting events of mass appeal, will be able to share the contents obtained by the rights holder.

Information, Communications and Culture Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, said the move is to enable all sporting events that involve the interest of the country to receive wide coverage instead of being monopolised by the rights-holder. This move is so that all Malaysians can watch these sporting events that are being televised live. He added that if a specific sporting event was aired by a free-to-air TV station, the contents would be shared by pay TV stations.

Among the sporting events falling under the sharing programme are the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, Sea Games, Sukma, Thomas and Uber Cups, All England, BWF Super Series, AFC Asian Cup, Asean Football Federation Cup, Fifa World Cup (semifinals and final) and English Premier League.

Cane and rattan furniture in Kuala Lumpur

Crowd-puller: Tham ’s rattanware attracting customers

Cane and rattan furniture used to be very popular some two or three decades ago. Nowadays, it is not easy to find such furniture not because it has become unpopular but because being labor-intensive and the price not commensurating the work involved, lesser people are interested in picking up the trade. Cane and rattan furniture is done by hand and some pieces can involve hardwork. Workmanship and precision are key factors in making fine cane and rattan furniture pieces.

Mass-produced furniture has now replaced this once-popular type of furniture. Truth be told, cane and rattan furniture is comfortable, dainty and elegant in its special way.

So, if you are looking to buy cane or rattan furniture and other rattan products, here is a source. Mr Tham Kok Cheong is a furniture maker and has a shop making such furniture. He makes the furniture himself with help from his staff.

Mr Tham can be reached at (6)019-382 5208.

In case you're wondering, this is not a sponsored post neither do I know Mr Tham. I just thought to share this information as there have been many enquiries about cane and rattan furniture in KL. Besides, I'd like to see this dying trade continue and I hope to contribute to this in my own little way.

Kuala Dirang in Perak is flooded

The Star today carries an article of a town in the north being flooded. Kuala Dirang is the town. This is a town I have not heard of before, probably many other Malaysians too.

A disaster, natural or otherwise, may not be all bad. At least media coverage brings awareness the existence of a town or a village. This is a case in point.

An extraordinarily heavy overnight downpour caused flooding in several places in the state of Perak in the north resulting in some 1,145 people from villages around Kuala Dipang to be affected by floods on Thursday. Some 95 villagers were evacuated from Kuala Dipang early Thursday, after heavy rains overnight caused floodwaters to rise chest high.

Kampar is also flooded.

Internal Security Act - replaced by Security Bill

Following the Bill on varsity students' involvement in politics tabled in Dewan, another Bill tabled in Parliament is the Security Bill. This Bill replaces the Internal Security Act introduced in 1960 at that time to counter armed communist insurgency but has since become a source of controversy.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz tabled the first reading of the Security Offences (Special Measures) Bill 2012 to repeal and replace the ISA.

In contrast to the ISA that allows detention without trial, the Bill stipulates that all security offences be tried by the High Court.

More from The Star..

Security offences include waging war against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or aiding the escape of a prisoner of the State as listed under Chapter VI and VIA of the Penal Code.

Under clause 4 of the Bill, a police officer may, without warrant, arrest any person whom he has reason to believe is involved in security offences. However, no person should be arrested solely for his or her political belief or political activity.

A person arrested under the proposed Act may be held for 24 hours but the detention may be extended up to 28 days by a police officer of the rank of Superintendent or above to facilitate investigations.

If the police officer believes that further detention is not necessary, the person may be released but an electronic monitoring device will be attached to the person until the 28-day period is up. Any person convicted of tampering with or destroying the device faces a maximum jail term of three years and is liable to pay for damages.

In most circumstances, no bail will be granted to a person charged with a security offence. However, a person below 18, a woman or a sick or infirm person charged with a security offence may be released on bail, subject to an application by the Public Prosecutor that the person be attached with an electronic monitoring device.

The investigation officer will notify the next-of-kin of an arrested person of the detention and allow that person to consult a lawyer.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the repeal of the ISA in his Malaysia Day message in September last year as part of government efforts for political transformation.

Bill on varsity students' involvement in politics tabled in Dewan

As a nation matures, changes in policies and rulings are inevitable. In Malaysia, the voting age is still at 21 but more and more students are mature enough to enable them to get involved in politics.

In a recent Dewan Rakyat (House of Representatives) sitting, The Universities and University Colleges (Amendment) Bill 2012, which seeks to enable a student to be a member of any political party, was tabled for first reading.

From The Star..

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin tabled the bill.

The bill proposed that a student may become a member of any organisation, whether in or outside Malaysia, including any political party.

However, it imposes restrictions on students' involvement in political activities in the campus. No restriction is imposed on such activities outside the campus.

The bill also proposed that "students cannot stand for election or hold any post in any campus organisation if the student holds any post in a political party."

This prohibition aims to maintain a neutrality in the campus.
