    How can I explain this to my son? Thats is alright for a keris-waving guy to lead in our Education ministry? It would be easier if he is given a role in our Defense or Foreign Affairs’ ministry. Cant wait for PRU13!
    When can we have a Malay capable to lead us without threat/force?

  2. wat’s wif those red-colored “colorful” politicians? any elaborations?
