KUALA LUMPUR: The government owes the public, particularly Sarawakians, an explanation for the transfer of Nancy Shukri to a less important portfolio, said Seputeh MP Teresa Kok in a statement. “It’s clear and obvious that this was indeed a demotion.”

It was “subtle retaliation” against Nancy for not going with “the Najib flow”, she claimed. “Isn’t this also not a ‘slap on the face’ of the Sarawakian minister?”

Theresa May became Britain’s new prime minister, but her husband’s big fashion moment stole the show.

Stepping into the limelight as First Man, Philip May showcased a sexy navy suit with a flourish of pinstripe.

A single fastened button at the waist helped show off his fantastic figure and a pale blue tie brought out the colour of his eyes.

Round glasses perched on his nose accentuated his amazing bone structure – no doubt one of the assets he used to help him to bag his wife.

The Malaysian government, with its dire need to win support from Muslims, feted Zakir and even offered him an island! So much for their powers of discernment.

I attended the concert on Taiwan Literature and Music Night (台湾文学之夜)organised by Taipei Economits & Cultural Office in Malaysia (TECO) at KLCC on last Saturday.

The two singers who performed that night were Anthony Neely (倪安东)and Jess Lee (李佳薇). Both are famous singers in Taiwan and both of them were born out of Taiwan.
