Rosmah Mansor Correctly Chooses Orange

Finally, Najib Razak’s FLOM gets the opportunity to come face-to-face with justice! 

On June 25, 2018, Rosmah Mansor (right) was summoned to meet the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission. 

On September 26, she was questioned again by MACC – it went on for 13 hours at a stretch. 

On October 03, she had her third date with MACC. 

The following day, she was plastered with 12 counts of money laundering and five counts of tax evasion, involving a total of RM7,097,750.00.  

The money was deposited into her Affin Bank account between 2013 and last year, and her failure to declare tax returns was for each of those years.

All the charges were proffered under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 (Act 613) as the alleged offences were committed prior to its amendment as the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001. 

She had pleaded not guilty.

This woman may not be in the “Lokap SPRM” garb – but at least she adopted orange as her attire color. A correct choice!

All these almost daily stories about Najib & Rosmah are casting a pall over me. I need a wee distraction.

Nothing beats humor. Especially if it is Rowan Atkinson's (right).

One of the my favorite clips from his vast back catalogue is a hilarious sketch where the angry teacher played by Rowan Atkinson invites a father in to talk about the trouble he had had with the son:

Whether mesmerising us with the sheer visual mastery of Mr. Bean, beguiling us with the acerbic wit of Edmund Blackadder, or simply entertaining us as the suave, but rather hapless British secret agent Johnny English, you surely won't have escaped the comic genius that is Rowan Atkinson.


On Thursday, Celtic had a dream start in this Europa League Group B tie against FC Red Bull Salzburg when Odsonne Edouard fired them ahead after just two minutes. 

Then, after the break, it tuned into a nightmare when the latter put in three (55, 61, 73 penalty). 

The match stats tells us why we lost – the Scottish champs had only 35% possession. 

According to one commentary, the swagger that led this team of players to a double treble looked gone. The zip, drive and belief were missing and defensive deficiencies were, at times, badly exposed by a very decent side. Sigh!
