Captain Malaysia

There’s a famous char koay teow stall in Kelana Jaya, outside the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) building, that’s become like the unofficial meet-up point for those who’ve any business with the FAM. If you’re a fan of the national football team – and don’t tell anyone I told you this – all you have […]

Expensive Englishmen

IT’S one of those things you hear so often that you just sort of accept it as truth – in this day and age, English football players cost more. That, my friends, is how ghost stories, mysterious UFO sightings, Bigfoot and the perception of Taylor Swift as a singer came about. As illogical and ridiculously […]

Rumour has it

It’s been a while since I posted anything here, and I’ve been quite eager to get back to writing, especially with all the transfers going on. I’ve been kept busy by this leadership training thingy The Star asked some of us to do, and I’m finally graduating tomorrow (fingers crossed), after SEVEN months of seminars, […]

The future of comics

I WAS nine when I was first exposed to Spider-Man. It was the issue where the web-slinger faced off with The Rhino, a classic Spidey villain that had the powers of a rhinoceros.

Jones vs. Henderson

One is a tough-tackling, uncompromising monster of a defender in the Jamie Carragher mould; the other, an elegant playmaker that could, by some stretch of the imagination, be seen as the English Kaka. Both players are well-built, at around 6 ft 2 in, contrary […]

The automated web

ONE of the things that I love doing most with the various websites I use is automating their services. These automations are usually self-contained within a service or application, the way my Office email sends an auto-reply when I’m not in the office, or how my Twitter account automatically blocks certain users from sending me […]

Get Personal: Fahmi Fadzil

MANY of you might know him as @Fahmi_Fadzil, the guy who gave a whole new meaning to the phrase “a thousand apologies”. Okay, so he only had to post a hundred apologies on Twitter to settle his defamation case with a publishing house, but with the untold ramifications of Twitterverse – and the small matter […]

IT’S not often that Alex Ferguson is described as gracious in defeat, but then again, it’s not often he gets so comprehensively beaten.

Too young to Facebook?

In your honest and totally unbiased opinion, what is the right age for someone to be allowed to sign up for a Facebook account? Currently, in keeping with the United State’s 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Facebook only allows people aged 13 and above to sign up for its service. Yet, a study […]
