Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

Lately all the news is full of the global economic disaster, its fightening. I cannot even think what will happen to resources for disabled people, benefit recipients because their councils have had their bank deposits frozen.

I went back to look for Malaysia news, why? I think part of me still think of Malaysia as home and I want to keep  up with its politics and news. Its like reading the monthly supplements not the daily tabloids or broadsheet newspapers.

I found a good way of catching up on the Malaysian scene at Malaysiakini on youtube. Okay, its more like the editorials than really catching the news - for that I read The Star online - but it is good to hear voices of lecturers at universities, proffesionals ..somebody mentioned an 'educated voting public' - that has such a resonance in the US elections now...but then, I don't think education has any impact on intelligent voting there...ah well.....

it is so good to hear Malaysian voices.

p/s I was told that the one of the places to really catch up on Malaysian news is Bernard Khoo's blog.
