Enjoy your Weekend with Salena

What a week it was. September, 2015 is gone and for here on till December the days will grow short. Let us enjoy the music and voice of this lovely Mexican singer Salena Quintanilla Perez who died tragically in 1995. Relax because we do not know what tomorrow comes. Carpe Diem. We dedicate these songs to our Dentist friend, Dr Davids Nissan of Mexico City who we met in Taipei, Taiwan and also to Dr. Kamsiah’s mentor, Dr. Chris Chang, and his wife Dr. Su Fen.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

Bonus: Westlife

Let us relax

FCC@Phnom Penh

Tomorrow is a public holiday in Cambodia since it is the day people here to commemorate the promulgation of their new Constitution. It is also  Hari Raya Haji in BolehLand.

Let us the Malays reflect on what happened on September 16, when bigots and racists sponsored by big spender Najib Razak took to the streets to protect Malay maruah. There is no maruah if the Malays are being led by a corrupt, lying and dishonest leader. Let us not run away from the fact that we the Malays can be bought and sold like cheap commodities by Najib.

Despite our strong Islamic beliefs, we are lacking in moral courage to tell him to relinquish power; instead those red shirts led by a self-serving ikan bakar seller for a piddly sum of ringgits are giving him a fresh lease of political life. I have no Islamic song to play for you on this public holiday. Instead, let us listen to the 3 Tenors (Pavarotti, Carreras and Domingo) and relax.–Din Merican

Singapore’s Lady of Song–Tina Dahari

Indonesia’s Singing Sensation–Hendri Rotinsulu and others

Your Weekend Entertainment–Bringing Back Memories

Dr Kamsiah in Mumbai, India and Din Merican in Phnom Penh by The Mekong bring for yourDin at KLIA with Dr Kamsiah listening pleasure the unique voices and the guitar sounds of the Everly Brothers. In doing so, we pay special to the late Phil Everly. Together, Phil and Don entertained millions around the world with their songs.

For Din in particular, it is always an emotional experience whenever he brings back singers and musicians of his generation since they remind him of his departed close friends  from those bygone years when life in Alor Setar and Penang was plain,simple and less complicated.

Time has a way of cheating on us. So, in stead being nostalgic, we hope that the songs from the Everly Brothers will bring back fond memories wherever you may be. Each of us has memories to cherish.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

Bonus –Joni James for Cheam Tat Pang

Your Weekend Entertainment– Let’s Go Country and Western with Mr. Johnny Cash


Phnom Penh –Cambodia

After three weeks of tension and emotional outburst, Dr. Kamsiah and I have chosen to entertain the men and women of Bersih 4.0 who were at Dataran Merdeka and its surrounds and members of the Royal Malaysian Police who helped to ensure that the gathering of thousands in Kuala Lumpur on August 29 and August 30 was orderly and peaceful.

We have pleasure in presenting to you Mr. Johnny Cash. Mr. Cash is arguably the best country western singer to have entered the country and western music world. There are, of course, others like Glen Campbell, John Denver, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins among them.

We enjoyed being with you all on those historic days on the eve of Din and Kamsiah at Bersih4.0Merdeka Day–our 58th,  but our business is not finished since what we did was not enough to move the Prime Minister to step down. So the struggle for change is still a work in progress. For us, it was a pleasure to meet Dato Ambiga, Maria Chin Abdullah, Adam Adli, YB Tian Chua, Ivy Josiah, Cynthia Gabriel,  Dr. Subramaniam Pillay, Mr. Sarajun Hoda and others. –Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
