Ahead of this weekend’s Bersih 4 rally, a contingent of university students had gathered in front of Parliament for a sit-in protest dubbed “#OccupyParliament” and had refused to leave until Prime Minister Najib Razak steps down. They had camped along the road leading to Parliament House since Monday and then finally, the police moved in last night and arrested seventeen of them. 
 
Among those detained were: Khairol Najib, Lau Yi Leong, Lee Chung Lun, Saw Jia Ying, Ng Xiang Yi, Wes Oung, Oung Kang Wei, Sharafi Ilman, Teo Ann Siang, Mustapha Kamal, Faizzudin, Zul Asrag, Ammar Atan and Awis.
 
This is the second occupy movement that has taken root in Kuala Lumpur, the first being #OccupyDataran,, which staged their camp-in after some 500 tertiary education students marched through Kuala Lumpur on April 14, 2012 to demand the abolition of the National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN).
 
Liverpool maintained their unbeaten start to the EPL season as they played out a thrilling goalless draw with Arsenal on Monday. It was a game that saw the Reds dominating the first half and the Gunners in control in the second half. And yet, neither side could carve out a victory and deliver an early psychological blow among the contenders at the top of the table.
 
On Tuesday, I was at the Money Mastery Toastmasters meeting where I delivered CC#10 titled “Impossible Dreams”. I was evaluated by CP Lau. I also evaluated an Advanced speech presented by Haji Hashim Adnan – it must have been good because I was voted Best Evaluator.
 















 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A good meeting although it started four minutes late and ended ten minutes behind schedule. A 4 over 10 score for this meeting.
