MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

power to The Conference of Rulers (Majlis Raja-Raja)

rulers wars, originally uploaded by hatzjourney.

Malaysiakini quotes a report from Wednesday's edition of The Straits Times that the Conference of Rulers (Majlis Raja-Raja) has recently made a rare ruling by rejecting the PM's nominated candidate to fill the vacant post of Chief Judge of Malaya (CJM), the third highest-ranking official in the judiciary.

Under the Malaysian constitution, the rulers are to be consulted on certain key government appointments such as judges or members of the Election Commission. In the case of judicial appointments, the Prime Minister makes the recommendations after discussion with the Chief Justice.

Apparently this might be in response to concern from the legal fraternity that relatively junior judges have been appointed over the heads of more senior judges like Gopal Sri Ram. The Straits Times report suggested that the Prime Minister may have had an audience with HRH Sultan Azlan Shah, who was a former Lord President (now known as Chief Justice), regarding this matter.

Finally, power to the Sultan? Watch this saga, as this battle unfold between Malaysian Royalty Ruler and Malaysia's ruling party. Here an interesting read from Imran Imtiaz Shah Yacob for Asia Sentinel, posted by: Raja Petra at malaysia-today.net.

This is like the 'Star Wars' saga, and Raja Petra appear to be the "jedi knight", battling against the evil UMNO Empire with their "stormtroopers" aka "cybertroopers from Lisbo Planet". He is the 'Hans Solo' implementing strategy in the battle between UMNO and the Rulers. Read his laser post on this issue. It is about time the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King of Malaysia) act on his responsibility for safeguarding the rights and privileges of all citizens of Malaysia.

“ Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy ”

Steve Jobs - Referring to the pirate flag that flew over Apple’s headquaters in 1983. I believe that quote was one of three keyphrases for a large Apple meeting/conference, and the Pirate flag was attached to the Macintosh building after that meeting. So the flag was actually a reaction to that.
