Sheila Wong

For those of us who know this Toastmaster, Sheila Wong, we are proud that she has been featured in today’s New Sunday Times (p R3) in a piece “ABC of good grooming” – and promoting her latest book “Yes, You Can Look Slimmer”. A talented lady, this image guru has already written two books – it’s about time, I start on mine!

I read columnist Azmi Anshar’s article in the New Straits Times (January 16, 2010, p 4) where he had admitted that “peninsular Muslims are sorely split over who ‘owns’ Allah”. Irrespective of our own personal position on this issue, I have to agree with him that “the genie is out of the bottle and cannot be manipulated or controlled to return inside. It is out there haunting all Malaysians and there is no recompense of the horrendous damage done. Perhaps the singularities that will protect Malaysia from further impairment of its celebrated construct is the immutable clarity of compromise, concession, bargaining and negotiation that has stitched all Malaysians together since 1963 through all social, cultural and political battles. Now that this demand is foisted: who will boldly make the conciliatory move?” Yep, shouldn’t Najib, the promoter of 1 Malaysia take this first step? Dare he? Will he?
And in the SPL, Falkirk took an early lead and held on to earn a well-deserved point against Celtic in a 1-1 draw. Carl Finnigan shook off a strong challenge from Celtic’s Darren O’Dea to shoot past Boruc on 19 minutes. Celtic replied five minutes before the interval when Georgios Samaras thundered in a low drive.
