Nurul Izzah Barred

On Thursday, PKR vice-president and Lembah Pantai MP, Nurul Izzah Anwar (left) – who was going to celebrate the Pesta Kaamatan (Harvest festival) in Sabah – was denied entry into the state under the Chief Minister’s orders. She had tweeted at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport that she was not allowed to see her lawyer before being escorted back onto a plane to head back to Kuala Lumpur. Why is Musa Aman so afraid of her? Does Musa own Sabah? Sabah’s chief minister has no business barring Malaysians from entering the state. Clearly, this is a blatant abuse of power!

We all know that the Sulu gunmen were freely permitted to land in Sabah and remained for “weeks” and yet a Malaysian was stopped by state immigration officers and immediately deported. Maybe, the next time Nurul wants to get into Sabah, she should go to Mindanao in the Philippines first and then traverse the seas to enter the state unhindered. She could even choose to be escorted by Sulu gunmen.

DAP’s Lim Guan Eng said this brings into question how a Malaysian is being treated worse than a foreigner in their own country! I agree. Indonesians, Filipinos and other illegals can just cross into Sabah with relative ease. Sometimes I wonder if Sabah is really a part of Malaysia.

And since I mentioned the Sulu invaders, what happened to the remnants of the Royal Sulu Army? Is the mopping-up ops completed? Why the grand silence?

On the same day too, there was a belated birthday bash for Amy Lim (her birthday is actually May 18) and we (How Yee and I) hosted the wee celebration at Brussels Beer Cafe at Jaya One in Petaling Jaya:
