Your weekend entertainer for the Weekend–Harry Belafonte
By presenting Harry Belafonte, we hope we can divert your attention from the 2016 UMNO General Assembly, which is being stage managed to boost the sagging morale and battered image of its President.
Our best wishes for this first week in December with Christmas only weeks away. As we all know, 2017 will open with the inauguration of President-Elect Donald J. Trump as the 45th POTUS.

Fats Domino–Our Guest for this Weekend
Dr. Kamsiah Haider and Din Merican present Fats Domino of the Rock ”n’ Roll era. He appeared on the music scene in the 1950s together with Rock ‘n’ Rollers like Bill Haley and His Comets, Elvis Presley and others who brightened up the 1950s with their unique brand of all American music. Enjoy your Sunday.–Dr. Kamsiah Haider and Din Merican

Russell Watson–Our Guest for your weekend entertainment
Will Donald keep his word? Like the Mexicans, we are not going to pay for it
Like it or not, Donald J. Trump is POTUS-Elect. Let us wish him well as he becomes the 45th President of the most powerful democracy. Kamsiah Haider and Din Merican were rooting for Hillary Clinton who was by popular acclaim the most qualified politician ever to be elected successor to the popular Barrack Obama. It is not to be and that is destiny for you.
We were right since Hillary won the popular vote but she did not get the 270 electoral votes to take The White House. President-Elect Trump got more than 280 votes. As a result, he made history by becoming the first business person to become Commander-in-Chief. Put politics behind, let us enjoy Russell Watson and relax.–Dr. Kamsiah Haider and Din Merican.

Looking Back in Time with Music–For Your Weekend
Dr Kamsiah and Din Merican in Phnom Penh
I have just returned from a brief visit to Kuala Lumpur to be with my beloved Dr. Kamsiah G. Haider. While I was there, I befriended my neighbour in my Damansara Jaya community (Road SS22/39), Sunny Chew and his horticulturist wife, both of whom were educated at The Penang Free School. They told me that they were in Penang to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of our alma mater on October 21.
During our conversation, Sunny told me that he was a regular visitor to my blog; he particularly enjoyed the songs Dr. Kamsiah and I played during the weekend. I promised Sunny and his wife that when I returned to Phnom Penh, I would dedicate two tunes to them and our fellow PFS alumni and in memory of our great teachers.
So here are the tunes Sunny suggested for your listening pleasure, The first tune is titled Enjoy Yourself by the incomparable Doris Day and the other is You raise me up by Josh Groban.
Let us all also enjoy The Platters with their hits. May these tunes bring back memories of times past and may we recollect what it was when we were carefree and gay. Best wishes from Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

The Sound of Santo and Johnny for this Diwali Weekend
Let us enjoy the music of Santo and Johnny. Relax before the Clinton-Trump Presidential race culminates on November 8. Who will be the next POTUS?. Some say America will have its first Madam President and Commander-in Chief. Others who seek change want a Trump Presidency. We wish the American voter all the best when they go to the polls. Voter turnout will be crucial. –Dr. Kamsiah G. Haider and Din Merican

Here’s Bobby Vinton–Bringing back Memories
Dr. Kamsiah Haider is away in Taipei, Taiwan. So it is my pleasant duty to entertain you this Sunday. For this purpose, I have chosen Bobby Vinton, the popular entertainer of my teenage years. It has been such a long time but the songs and the music remain vibrant and soothing. May Bobby Vinton bring back memories of our time and warm the hearts of the generations after ours.–Din Merican
