....... The good old Malay style! To be honest, I find the version by Straits Chinese off-putting (no offence). Couldn't agree more! Even the so called famous Katong laksa is only so-so to me.

folks! op was only asking if justice will be served in this (tiny) island but the thread's gone slightly off-topic. OP, we can't control peeps actions and behaviour but we can watch out for ourselves. Have your evidence ready and just follow the advise and instructions by the police and court and wa...

jonive, i sympathize with your predicament. it's obviously not right to have a knife pointed at you, heated argument or not. if you are still staying at that place (you should move out as fast as possible as by the sound of it, your landlord are not nice/decent peeps) i suggest you have a friend ove...

Hi SMS, would it then be legal if the owner bought 2 units, took down the meter for one of the 2 units and have 1 meter serving the 2 units and then renting out the smaller of the 2 units out as 'room rental' at the rate of $1600 / month? Yep. Legal. These are known as Jumbo Flats and were actually ...

Thats everyone. Ca...

kk (or kota kinabalu :) ) but last i was told kk has gotten worse than kl - dirty, polluted. ...... If you had a long weekend, and only time for Kuching or KK, which would you prefer? One caveat: I'd have a 1yr old with me, so long jungle treks are out. I'd still love as much outdoor stuff as can be...
