Being a leader is not just about holding an important position, but in carrying the amanah or trust, the leader will be held accountable to God. THE 13th General Election has come and gone and the leaders have been elected into Parliament and the State Legislative Assemblies. They have been chosen by voters to represent their interests, care for the welfare of the people and also drive the ...

I WOULD like to commend The Star’s Isabelle Lai for her excellent articles on the shameful rape of the virgin forests in Cameron Highlands. But if she were to make a root cause analysis, she would realise that all this rape boils down to the basic economic theory of demand and supply. As the population of the country increases, more virgin forests will have to be cleared for agricultural ...
I AM horrified to read the reports in The Star on the illegal land clearing going on at Cameron Highlands and the significant impact it is having on the environment. The Cameron Highlands Land and District Office is simply giving excuses for its failure to nab the workers doing the illegal land clearing, which will in turn lead to their paymaster and ultimate culprit. This shows its ineptitude. ...

I would like to thank those responsible for installing the lifts. As a senior citizen, I am happy that the Government and the corporate sector know how to take care of the elderly. ...
THE first and foremost responsibility of a wakil rakyat is to serve his constituency and, by extension, his state and nation. This includes taking up a government position if he is found qualified and suitable for the task. If service to the rakyat is above all and ';supreme';, then the performance of his or her political party in the elections is secondary and even deemed irrelevant. ...
I REFER to ';Bring back English schools'; (On The Beat, Sunday Star, May 19). Last year, a group of parents handed a memorandum, MOE19.2, to the Education Ministry. Apart from voicing our support for the teaching and learning of Science and Mathematics in English, we also asked the ministry to consider re-introducing English-medium schools. All in all, it boils down to the realisation ...
I CAME from a typical Chinese village where the chances of meeting people of different races were rare. When I was nine years old, my family moved to a new place which opened up a completely new chapter in my life. The very first taste of putu mayam dipped in mutton curry left a lasting and unforgettable impression on me. I looked forward to Hari Raya and Deepavali where I could enjoy a variety ...
I WAS educated in the national schools right up to Form Six. My results were good but weren’t good enough for a scholarship, so I took up an articleship with the accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand. I worked with them with a starting pay of RM350 per month in 1989, and in turn, they supported my part-time studies to be a certified public accountant. I worked my way up until I became a ...
