Dig the chow - Chow Kit Kita returns PDF Print E-mail

GORGE on a palkova. Savour a kharahi chicken. Wash in masala tea. Then there's Esfahan beryani, a full-bodied Iranian entree, where the only place it can be found in Malaysia is in a quaint eatery along Jalan Raja Laut in the Chow Kit district of KL. All within a 20-minute stroll from each other.

Food - one of the last remaining cultural totems yet to be politicised in Malaysia, thankfully - finds its full glory in this district acknowledged for its delirious diversity. Be they sold in shops or pushcarts, these little gems could be located on busy streets or tucked away in a lesser-known backlane; quite a challenge for the non-Chow Kit native. Hence, 15 teens are working to help show you the gastronomic wonders of the locale.


Enter Chow Kit Kita 2. Yes, The Sequel. And this time the theme is, very simply, Food. After a short break from the first Chow Kit Kita, the organisers have selected a fresh group of teenagers to continue the community mapping project. Saturday last week, the group was ushered on a walking tour of the district, where they were informed about the history of the place and had first-hand bites of the some of the many kinds of food available.

Accompanied by a lazy drizzle, a group of people gathered in front of the Egyptian embassy in KL to show solidarity with the people of Egypt whose battle to overthrow their president is being met with an iron fist. Information on what's going on in Egypt can be found here and here.

Below are images of the peaceful gathering.


The demonstration was peaceful and rather timid as compared to that which is taking place in Egypt. A few political figures were present alongside activists and members from NGOs as well as members of the public.


Demonstrators walked from the car park area of Taman Tasik Ampang Hilir towards the entrance of the embassy where the police were on standby to prevent any untoward incident.

Unanswered Questions - Bukit Aman, 8th January 2011 PDF Print E-mail

It was a cloudy morning at the parking area in front of Bukit Aman. Perhaps the sky too decided to join in and stand in solidarity with family members of three young men who were shot dead by the police near Glenmarie, Shah Alam in the wee hours of 13th November 2010. Today, accompanied by lawyers, representatives from NGOs and also concerned members of the public, they were gathered in search for answers for their questions which have been long met with a resounding silence from the authorities.


Equally dark were the faces. Faces that are tired. Faces that couldn't rest. Faces of those who have lost a child, a brother, a grandson, and a friend.


The face of a father who will no longer see his son, for reasons still unclear.



The face of a broken mother who lost her 15 year old to fatal shots of a gun.
