    Why A Law Undergrad is Mucking About with A Science Competition

    by Shaun Kua

    Let’s face it. No Malaysian law undergrad believes in “Every company needs lawyers” enough to seriously think about a career primarily in – or with – the Malaysian electronics & electrical (E&E) industry. Much less muck about with The Great Lab 10 weeks away from finals.

    The Kajang Scheme – Choosing politics over results

    by Adam Reza

     The year is 2014, fresh from GE 13 last May, fresh from a by-election in Sungai Limau in Kedah and right after the UMNO elections – which is widely considered to be the ultimate display of Malay centric politics on steroids, one could be forgiven for thinking that political crazy season was over. And just as we were ready to move on from all the skull drudgery that comes with elections, political crazy season is back.

    The Long Walk Home – Tribute to a Born Leader

    by Aira Nur Ariana Azhari

    My earliest memory of the late Nelson Mandela came when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My father loved to test my general knowledge (very nerdy for a kid that age, I know), and one of the most frequent questions he used to ask me was “Who is the President of South Africa?” I would dutifully answer “Nelson Mandela, daddy!” and after a while that name got stuck in my brain. Growing up, the President of South Africa was always Nelson Mandela to me. I didn’t know about Thabo Mbeki or Jacob Zuma until I was much older, and although their own contributions to South Africa were undoubtedly significant, they are not Mandela.

    A whole new life after Projek Kalsom

    by Tengku Ameer Faiqal bin Tengku Ferozdin

    My stay at Projek Kalsom was indeed the most memorable days in my life. At first, I expected this camp to be like other camps I have attended before, but Kalsom was different from the others. It was fun-filled, exciting, heart-touching and overall, an inspiring programme. I would say that many other participants would agree with me too. I have never heard of Kalsom before or heard of any of my seniors had joined it. From what I knew, this programme started years ago with the mission to help underprivileged students. And guess what? Mission accomplished!

  • 14 Sep 2013


    Projek Kalsom is an annual motivational programme for underprivileged students in Malaysia. It is organised by Kelab Belia Kalsom in collaboration with the United Kingdom and Eire Council for Malaysian Students (UKEC). The participants targeted are 16-year-old students, where they are in their transitional period from PMR to SPM, and are in the best position to make significant decisions on their education and their future. This year, the programme returned to its original state, Pahang after 18 years. The Director for Projek Kalsom 19 is Farid Al Azim, a final-year law student from the University of Bristol in the UK.

    My Perdana Fellow Story

    by Low Jin Wu

    GE13 catalysed my interest in politics, bringing my spirit of inquisitiveness to a whole new dimension. The controversies, disappointments, allegations and scrutiny are among the various aspects in politics that I find so intriguing.

    I grew up in a predominantly Chinese neighbourhood where its dwellers have very strong support for the Opposition. I thus feel the need to get out of my comfort zone, and to learn and gain an insight on the ‘other’ side of the story. I refuse to limit my exposure to merely browsing news portals and discussions among my peers over social media. As an Economics major, I am also very eager to learn more about the government’s role in the financial aspect of the economy and contribute my ideas in the drafting of policies. Determined to get a first-hand experience in politics and policy-making, I applied for the Perdana Fellows Programme, after my good friend, Shahrul Hamdan, who is presently a member of the current UKEC Committee, introduced it to me.

    Journey to the East

    by Charmaine Tew Shu Yi 

    “Hahaha! You’re using such an outdated phone!”

    That was the remark I got from an 8-year-old kampung boy when he saw my friend using an old Nokia phone. His name is Windy.

    Windy is not the typical kampung boy you imagine him to be. He’s witty, street-smart, and he laughs at you for owning an old Nokia 3310.

    So, BN is still in power…

    by Rosheen Fatima


    I’m going to say something that most people are not going to like hearing, and I’m saying this because of the huge amount of black in my Facebook newsfeed.

    Please Indicate Your Race and Religion

    by Amir Rozlan

    Too much hope for change rests on the elections, and this will not be a commentary on them. Both parties and their most avid supporters tell us it’s good or evil, outbidding each other’s populist promises. If the last five years are an indication of what can change with stronger Opposition influence, it appears that states under their government have been getting on without extraordinary change, as have the states which remained under BN. Instead, we have had more fingers pointed at each other’s corruption, mismanagement and general misconduct, although it is obvious who should rightly and naturally bear more responsibility for mismanaging the country for the past 50 years.

    Isu Harga Minyak – Mengapa Malaysia sebagai Pengeluar Minyak berbeza dengan negara Arab

    oleh Adam Reza

    Saya cukup kecewa dan berasa kesal dengan sikap segelintir rakyat Malaysia yang baru-baru ini mengecam isu hasil minyak negara. Daripada mereka yang mengatakan bahawa subsidi minyak patut setaraf dengan negara Arab kepada mereka yang mendakwa bahawa hasil minyak kita disalahgunakan dan hanya memanfaatkan golongan “kroni”. Kenyataan dan tuduhan ini bukan sahaja tidak tepat, ianya juga mengingkari prinsip ekonomi asas.
