MOCS mocks Parochial Sarawakian

I HAVE been busy outstation and didn’t have time to blog this week. My sincerest apologies to those of you who have been waiting for me to reply a posting by the Malaya-based man fronting the so-called Movement of Change Sarawak or MOCS or as I like to call it MOC(K)S.

Dato Sri Tra Zehnder – A Tribute

Dato Sri Tra Zehnder — Remembering A True Sarawakian of Substance

IT seems almost poetic that Dato Sri Tra Zehnder returned to the Lord yesterday, July 22 — the day of Sarawak’s independence 48 years ago or as blogger Rimau Atas Kerusi calls it, Sarawak Day. Dato Sri was a true Sarawakian of Substance. She was the first woman to achieve so many things in the … Continue reading

Happy Sarawak Day!

Click here to go to Happy Sarawak Day 2015. I BORROWED that from fellow blogger Rimau Atas Kerusi but I thought it was rather appropriate. Today, 48 years ago, Sarawak was an independent nation. We were not under the Brunei Sultanate. We were not under the Brookes. We were not under Japanese occupation. We were … Continue reading

According to them it’ll be a three-hour affair from 2pm to … Continue reading

Remembering a Sarawakian gentleman

DATUK Amar James Wong, the state’s first Deputy Chief Minister after the formation of Malaysia, returned to our Father in heaven this morning. A sad day for Sarawak and Malaysia as he was truly a part of the team that negotiated the formation of this nation. He was a faithful Christian who was always in … Continue reading
