Merdeka 57: Let us celebrate the Occasion

Best wishes from  us for this weekend. God Bless Malaysia. We need His Blessings because our politicians on both sides of the divide are competing hard to show us which side can make a bigger mess. Right now  Pakatan Rakyat, especially Hadi Awang and his crowd in PAS, in Selangor is way over the top. –Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

Your Weekend Entertainment : We wish to remember Matt Monroe

Kamsiah HaiderMatt Monroe was Britain’s Musical export of the Sixties, born with a God given cyrstal clear voice. He is the singer who is in a class of his own, cultivated, cultured and sophisticated. He showed us that he could rise above his working class to become his country’s top entertainer. If you are surprised, just listen to Matt, the James Bond of the easy listening.

For this weekend, Dr. Kamsiah and I propose to feature Matt’s unique  rendering of hisimage greatest hits so that we all can relax ahead of the month of Ramadhan. We wish our relatives, Muslim friends and associates Selamat Berpuasa. Ramadhan is a special month for Muslims to reflect on one’s morality and get close to God Almighty. I hope those extremists in our community will stop playing politics and fanning hatred. –Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

Songs for the Weekend

Phang.RLast evening (May 31), Dr. Kamsiah and I attended the 75th Birthday party of Tan Sri Robert Phang  (left) at the Corus Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. It was a well attended function where we renewed old friendships including with the controversial Tunku Abdul Aziz, and made new friends. We also celebrated the graduation of Robert’s daughter, Dr. Frances Phang MD, from the University of Nebraska. Our congratulations to Dr. Frances and sincere birthday wishes to her dad, Tan Sri Phang.

At the Phang party, I also met a fan of this blog who asked me whether I had abandoned my role as DJ. I informed the nice and kind lady that the state of our politics had affected my musical mood. On the score, I took a break from being a weekend DJ. But I promised to play a few tunes for this Sunday. I, therefore, hope she likes my selection for her listening pleasure.–Din Merican
