SOME MALAYSIANS SEEM TO SUFFER FROM THE FACEBOOK CURSE

…BUT THEY DO NOT REALIZE IT AND CONTINUE TO GO ON THEIR ONE-MAN RAMPAGE AGAINST ANYTHING THAT DISPLEASES THEM.
By Mansor Puteh


…They criticize someone and appoint themselves as the judge and pass judgment on the person but could not get anyone to execute their orders.

THE 13 MAY, 1969 INCIDENT HAPPENED BARELY FOUR YEARS AFTER THE COLLAPSE OF THE OLD MALAYAN CINEMA THEN BASED IN JALAN AMPAS, SINGAPORE.

…AND THE NEED TO CREATE THE NEW MALAYSIAN CINEMA TO OVERCOME THE AFTERSHOCKS THAT ARE STILL BEING FELT TILL TODAY ONE CREATED BY AN INNOCENT CELLPHONE.
By Mansor Puteh


Our historians, psychologists, sociologists, politicians, researchers, think tankers and other so-called experts may not realize this, but the fact is the 13 May, 1969 Incident happened barely four years after the Old Malayan Cinema then based in Jalan Ampas in Singapore collapsed.

MALAYSIAN TELEVISION DRAMAS AND FEATURE FILMS NOT UP TO THE MARK.

…THEY DO NOT REFLECT THE LEVEL OF THINKING AND AWARENESS OF THE SOCIETY.  
By Mansor Puteh



I wish to respond to the two articles, 'Local shows mirror our culture' and 'Much to learn from local TV dramas' that were published in the NST on 13 July.

FASTING IN PARIS, IN JUNE, 2013

…ON FIVE DAYS THAT WENT BY BUT NOT SO VERY FAST WITH SUNDOWN FOR IFTAR BEING LATE AT NIGHT…IN A CITY THAT HAD CHANCED CONSIDERABLY WITH MORE ARABS AND MUSLIMS.


I looked forward to returning to Paris, France after the first visit I made to the city in January, 1982. It would be thirty-one years since I first stepped foot in the city and country, where I stayed for three days.

GARY BRAUT, THE ONLY ORTHODOX OR HASSIDIC JEW WHO CHOSE TO LIVE IN MALAYSIA.

…WHO LOVED TO LIVE IN THE COUNTRY AND WANTED TO BE BURIED IN THE JEWISH CEMETERY IN PULAU PINANG. HE DIED IN A HOSPITAL IN BEIJING WHERE HE HAD GONE TO SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT.


There are not many Jews who liked to come to Malaysia; they think Malaysia as an Islamic country does not like them coming over here.

By Mansor Puteh


It is so nice and comfortable to be abroad especially in the countries in the west where everything is in order and in a peaceful state, with no litter everywhere.

MOON OVER SYRIA

…A COUNTRY RAVAGED BY CIVIL STRIFE AND MOSTLY EXTERNAL PROVOCATIONS AND INFILTRATION OF ELEMENTS FROM ITS FORMER ALLIES AND ALL-TIME ENEMIES.


The moon was almost full three days into the month of June, 2013, as we drove back from the City of Homs back to Damascus after observing the voting activities in some ten or so polling stations of the Syrian Presidential election.

REVISITING THE WORLD TRADE CENTER AND A LESSSON NOT QUITE LEARNT BY THE AMERICANS AND ALL:

ALL AMERICANS REGARDLESS OF THEIR RACE, RELIGION, COLOR OR CREED, AND AMERICA DESERVE TO HAVE BETTER POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL SYSTEMS TO SUIT THE TIMES. IT IS FOR THEIR OWN GOOD!
By Mansor Puteh


…All Americans must be brave to set the White House free from any lobby groups who represent so small a community and weird and out-of-date personal interests and with so crude a behavior! Give America back to the voters! Take it back from the Lobbyists!
