The whole terminal was evacuated due to the fire.

Local news agency, The Straits Times reported that 3 people were taken to the hospital due to ‘smoke inhalation’.

Aftermath of The Singapore Riot Photos

9 12 2013

I was really surprised to read about how the first riot in Singapore since 40 years started.

Last night, a 33 year old Indian died after being run over by a bus in Little India; and that was how the riot started.

Yahoo News reported that two police cars were overturned as the front mirrors were crashed while 25 emergency vehicles were damaged and five vehicles were set on fire in the riot at the Race Course Road and Hampshire Road.

Singapore Warns Malaysian Politicians Not To Interfere In Its Domestic Affairs

29 05 2013

The Star reported that Singapore warns Malaysian politicians not to interfere in its domestic affairs.

In the article, DAP’s Kulai MP, Teo Nie Ching argued that “the person she was fighting for was unfairly punished” by Singapore, adding:

“It’s not that we want to interfere with (Singapore’s) internal affairs. If (the one person) only attended one protest, then that is unfair,” and that Singapore’s reaction was too harsh.”

But I thought that PR leaders, members and supporters especially DAP and PKR always praise Singapore as democratic, not corrupted and love the country till they use a Singapore-like flag for their Sang Saka Malaya.

But now, after their supporters were punished for taking part in an illegal protest, a DAP’s MP said that Singapore is unfair.

How confused are the PR supporters that they think they can also break the laws of other country as what they are doing in Malaysia.

I think if the incident happened in Malaysia, they’ll organise another ‘Candlelight Vigil’ and more demonstration asking for freedom of speech and calling the government as undemocratic.

Below is the report by The Star:

Singapore warns Malaysian politicians not to interfere in its domestic affairs

By PATRICK LEE

PETALING JAYA: Singapore has warned Malaysian politicians to stay out of its affairs, in the light of the arrests of 21 Malaysians for demonstrating in the island republic.

A joint statement by the Ministries of Home (MHA) and Foreign Affairs (MFA) said demands by Malaysian Members of Parliament for Singapore to let off those arrested was seen as foreign interference.

“Actions to involve foreign parties are attempts to seek special treatment and to further politicise what is essentially a domestic law and order issue in Singapore,” it said in a statement on its website.

Singapore added that it had always taken a strong stand against foreign issues or politics brought into the island nation.

It added that it did not interfere in domestic affairs of other countries, and expected similar treatment in return.

Previously, Malaysians gathered at Singapore’s Merlion Park on May 8 and 11 to protest against the May 5 general election results.

They were a rendition of the Blackout 505 rallies that took place in major cities around Malaysia.

On May 11, 21 Malaysians were arrested by Singaporean police. The work pass of one and visit passes of two others were revoked. The remaining 18 are currently being investigated by authorities there.

Several Malaysians have since approached their political representatives, including DAP’s Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching, for aid.

Last week Thursday, several Pakatan Rakyat MPs also petitioned the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur for leniency against the 21.

Meanwhile, in response, Teo said she was only fighting for the one whose work pass was revoked, arguing that the person was unfairly punished.

She said that the particular person only attended one rally, adding that Singapore’s reaction was too harsh.

“It’s not that we want to interfere with (Singapore’s) internal affairs. If (the one person) only attended one protest, then that is unfair,” she said.

Teo said that eight of the 21 had approached her over the matter, and with some telling her that they accepted their punishment.

She added that there was a spate of miscommunication in the episode, and asked Singapore to re-investigate the case.

“We’re only pleading for the one person…I don’t think this amounts to interfering. They are Malaysian citizens, and we have a duty to them,” she said.





Special Presents From India

21 01 2011

On 21th Dec 2010, Uncle Nisar reached Kuala Lumpur from Singapore.

Uncle Nisar is my father’s friend from Palo Alto, California.

Uncle Nisar flew to Singapore from India.

He was on holiday in Ahmadnabad, India.

Uncle Nisar gave me two presents 🙂

The first was an Indian  shirt.

I was wearing the Indian shirt 🙂

I wore the shirt to my hadith’s class that night.

The second present was wrapped in an Indian newspaper.

A banana?

Before I unwrapped the present, I thought it was a banana.

But after I unwrapped it, I was very surprised because it was not a banana.

It's not a banana but it's a wooden car!

It was a hand made wooden car!

The car is very beautiful.

I really love the car!

The front view of the car.

And I like the shirt too because it is nice and comfortable.

The shirt is a bit too big; so I can wear it for a long time 🙂
