Singapore's Last Veteran Opposition MP Jeyaretnam passed away at the age of 82 yesterday.

He will be dearly missed by the world community on his untiring struggle for democracy.

Dear Malaysians,

Please let us all in Malaysia remain united & treasure YM RPK, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim & DAP in their continuous fight for a Better Malaysia as well.

This country belongs to us as a Malaysian no matter if you are a Chinese, Indian or Malay.

"Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri".

Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

Salam, Malaysian.

Dear Malaysian readers,

We are from the Wayangparty club (blog) Singapore (www.wayangparty.wordpress.com)

Due to the sudden demise of our opposition icon and hero, Mr J.B. Jeyaretnam, we have not been blogging about Malaysian current affairs lately. We will publish a series of commentaries on Malaysian politics next week after the funeral of Mr Jeyaretnam this Saturday.

The first in line will be Roundtable discussion on a speech given by Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew which was published in The Straits Times Review on 29 September 2008.

In the article titled “The centre must hold“, Singapore’s Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew told an international audience comprising 200 diplomats and academics at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London that Singapore was able to have a stable, peaceful society largely because of his policy of treating every race equally.

He next cite the example of Malaysia as having a divided society now because of a race-based education system catering to the needs of individual races instead of a unified system in Singapore where all Singaporeans attend national schools together from the primary to tertiary level irregardless of race and religion.

This is what MM Lee said:

“We also got everybody mixed up in the (housing estates), no longer in enclaves. Every constituency has its quota of the less successful. Everybody has the same chances in education and we choose a neutral language - English.

Malaysia threw out English and went with Malay. The Chinese and the Indians decided to have their own schools. Now they have got a divided society.”

We have invited 3 Singaporeans and a Malaysian to share with us what they think of MM Lee’s remarks.

We hope to seek the opinions from our brothers across the causeway on the following two questions:

1. Do you agree with MM Lee that Malaysia society is divided now as a result of its education system ?

2. What will Malaysians think of MM Lee’s rather sharp critcism of their country ?

This discussion will be published on our blog next Monday on the 6 October 2008.

Please email your opinion, name and blog link to: wayangparty@hotmail.com

I'm a resident from PetalingJaya.
I have just witness an accident at LDP tunnel, direction that head to bandar utama/TTDI.

i have doubt in efficiency of our emergency number services.

that accident happened at 4:45am today.
a guy found injured lying on road.
people that try to help direct traffic almost hit by incoming traffic.

5:05, no police or ambulance can be seen.
i called 999, operator asked where i calling from, take down my name and number and direct my call to PJ police station(i am not sure which station that i am connected to).
i requested for ambulance and assist from police to direct the traffic.

5:20am police arrived followed by ambulance.
ambulance leave in very short time leaving the body there on street.

inefficient of police directing traffic cost another accident.
a motorcyclist injured.
after 5 minutes ambulance have not return yet.

i wonder why as a MSC country we don't have a central call center equipped with computer and operator just need take my call jot down what happen and direct it police or fire brigade without me doing it by myself.

something very insulting, McDonald delivery services is way more efficient that our emergency number.
it take 15 minutes for food to deliver to your door step but emergency services take more than that.

Will you be organizing another trip to visit RPK for the folks from KL?

I was away for holiday. Wish to drop RPK a visit, to support him.

Is there any procedure that we need to follow before going to Kamunting? By the way, where to exit from North South Highway?
