Disney's Borneo Hunt

This is Episode 4 of Disney’s Mickey Go Local, an animated short titled Rainforest Hunt:

Yesterday, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad had boasted that Pakatan Harapan’s biggest success as a government is being able to tackle corruption. 

He even added that after PH administered the government for a year and a half, most people would agree that it was better than the previous Barisan Nasional government. 

He is in a “syiok sendiri” mode because many Malaysians would disagree! Until and unless he fulfills the PH election pledges. 

And ‘success’ in combating corruption means zilch – until and unless the crooks are actually behind bars. Just to let him know, there are many others yet to be caught in the MACC dragnet. 

So, Mahathir (right) should stop feeling good about himself! Malaysians are still waiting for the New Malaysia – and our patience is wearing thin. 

Yesterday too, the Scottish champions faced Lazio in their Europa League Group E return fixture and it was a nail-biting game that will not be forgotten so soon.

The former showed cohesion and character and courage. As manager Neil Lennon said: "I am so happy and proud of the team”. 

Yes – and me too! 

It is noteworthy to mention that it was the Italian side who mostly went on the offensive – but the former admirably soaked up pressure after pressure. 

Not counting the one time when they conceded a goal though – Serie A's top scorer Ciro Immobile had hit the net with an unopposed back-post volley in only seven minutes. 

There were moments when Celtic attacked too. 

And then, magic happened for us. Twice. 

The first time was when Mohamed Elyounoussi’s pass to James Forrest, in behind the Lazio defense and the Shirt Number 49 launched a rocket of a shot into the top right-hand corner in the thirty-eighth minute. 

The second came from a Lazio mistake that gifted Odsonne Edouard the ball, and he played in fellow Frenchman Olivier Ntcham, whose dramatic stoppage-time strike earned Celtic a last-gasp victory over Lazio and a place in the Europa League last 32 – with two games to spare. 

Yes, we won 2-1 and yes, it was Celtic’s first victory in Italy in 13 attempts and kept them top of Group E with a guarantee of European football after Christmas!
