JMM wants Malaysian Insider to shut down

Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) wants local news portal Malaysian Insider to vanish off the face of the earth -- and plans to hold regular peaceful protests to drive its point home.

"Malaysian Insider has betrayed Malaysia and its people," says JMM head Azwanddin Hamzah.

He was referring to, among other things, the news portal's relationship with Indonesian nationalist group Bendera.

"I have the documents to prove it," says Azwanddin, adding that he had passed them on to the police for action.

JMM is also upset about Malaysian Insider's recent reports which it said "insulted the Sultans and Malay royalty".

Azwanddin said this after JMM had staged a 30-minute peaceful protest against the conduct of the news portal this afternoon.


The group had chosen the premises of the LRT station in Bangsar as the venue for the public meeting.

Many commuters lingered for several minutes to absorb the points raised by Azwanddin.

As in the first rally last Friday -- when Azwanddin was arrested for organising the event without a permit -- today's peaceful demonstration was also carried out illegally.

Azwanddin was adamant that JMM would continue to express its disapproval until Malaysian Insider shuts down.

The above picture shows Gary, who is holding his daughter, with Prestige magazine editor Saleha Ali and journalists Yani (Bernama), Suraya (Life & Times editor) and Meena (Life & Times).


Miss Malaysia (Universe) 1990 and Mrs Malaysia (World) 2004 Dato' Anna Lim came with her husband Dato' Jeffrey Lim and their two children.

The friendly pair sportingly posed for a picture.


Yani baked Gary, a former radio and TV show host, a classic dessert -- buttery rich Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- which brought back many childhood memories.

She is pictured here with Meena, who came to the party in her usual Bollywood style.

It was really a nice evening!

Thank you Gary!

Giving New Year resolutions another chance

In the spirit of New Year resolutions doing the rounds, I have a story to share. My friend Rabiaa Dani gave up making resolutions a long time ago. She found it hard to keep her promises made at the start of each year. The issue had given her a lot of grief over the years. Frustration ensued when her New Year resolutions went out of the window, often culminating with her beating herself up.

The first few days were good but she would falter after the first week. She felt bad about her lack of willpower and would feel depressed and unworthy of respect or value. So she decided that she would no longer make them. However, unknown to her, she would review this decision at the end of 2017.

What happened? Rabiaa and her husband attended a talk by Ustaz Dato' Badli Shah bin Alauddin at Komplex Darul Baraqah in Manjoi, Ipoh, Perak on December 28, 2017. The Ustaz from Pahang is one Rabiaa's favourite preachers and she hardly misses his religious talks on television. This was the first ti…
