Quotable Quote

Today’s The Sun carried the report that Malaysians have to date contributed more than RM1.2 million to the UNICEF to help nearly 1.5 million children who were directly affected by the January 12 earthquake that devastated Haiti (p 8). This is a lot of help from a country that is 17,381.4 kilometers (10,800.3 miles) away. And this amount does not yet include our contribution and presumably others as well.

In spite of Nazri's outburst, the (Malaysian) government will guarantee Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand’s safety should she continue to testify in the Teoh Beng Hock inquest, both Hishammuddin Hussein, the Home Minister and Abdul Gani Patail, Attorney-General reiterated yesterday (Webpage
http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/index.php/malaysia/59604-hisham-gani-guarantee-pornthips-safety-here). Now, that is certainly very reassuring to hear. Let’s hope Dr. Pornthip will attend the April 20 hearing.

When I first read the interview Rosmah Mansur (she’s the wife of Najib Razak, our Prime Minister, in case there are readers who plead ignorance) gave to the press sometime back – I ignored it. I mean, she has been courting the press a lot, so why should I glorify her further? But I came across this hard-to-ignore quotable quote on
http://thedandelions.wordpress.com/, and it made me squeal in pretentious glee! It’s pretty uncommon (okay, this is strictly my personal opinion) to find women who are husband-fearing! And I am not counting the minority of women who are periodically abused by brutish beasts masquerading as husbands. But here we have Rosmah candidly admitting that “if he stamps his feet, I will shudder” – describing her Najib, and in the process, portraying herself to be er… well… mousy! Fact or fiction?
