OTHER WAYS TO SAVE MALAYSIA

Forum presented by UnScientific Malaysia
Besides stopping Lynas,

what else can we do to save Malaysia?

 We get three green activists to pick

 their biggest environmental issues that Malaysians should be concerned about,

and discuss the myths and misinformation behind them.

scepticism and freethought. We can be found at http://unmsia.com/,

BAYANG oleh NAMI COB NOBBLER


SPERMA CINTA 2.0 oleh AISA LINGLUNG

Pelancaran Buku
Dari penulis Awek Chuck Taylor,

Bayang mengisahkan tentang Faris merupakan seorang yang dilahirkan bijak,

 tetapi atas kesempitan masa mak ayah,

dia dibesarkan bersama nenek yang pakciknya seorang pendera.

Dari sini, dia mengenal Jack, yang membawanya ke negara Delta,

dimana dia ada misi untuk membunuh seorang pemimpin negara musuh.

Tamat persekolahan dan menceburi bidang teater,

dia bertemu dengan Adleen, seorang pakar psikologi.

Semua baginya logik walaupun mungkin tidak bagi orang lain.

Dan bila pakciknya yang mendera itu mati dalam keadaan tragis,

sedikit demi sedikit terbuka cerita –

antara dua; yang mana pasti, yang mana hanya bayangan mimpi.

Sperma Cinta 2.0 adalah himpunan cerita-cerita gembira untuk gusi-gusi yang kering.

"Korang pernah minum bubble milk tea? 
Macam tu laa gua rasa lepas baca.
 Shiok macam kunyah bijik pearl :)"

THE SINGING REVOLUTION
Film screening
This is the inspiring, incredible story of how Estonia’s fight for independence from USSR
began with singing.

Taking us through the history of this small nation by the Baltic Sea,
the documentary shows how one occupier after another
 took away the freedom of the Estonian people – but not their hope.

Expressing their profound love for their country through forbidden patriotic songs,
 Estonians gathered in public to sing, inspiring leaders and the entire nation to take a bold stand against their oppressor.

the history textbooks used in Indonesia, from primary 1 to form 6,
