Apa khabar? The Pulau movie producer, Fred Chong, stated that all sponsors have pulled out which means they are not able to hold fun gala nights.
Hi Fred, with all due respect, if you do manage to get some sponsors, can we please be invited to the premier?

Where’s the fashion police now?
We recently came across an image of what seemed to be a march, and no, St Patrick’s Day did not come early. It was the Himpunan Pemuda Islam Terengganu (PAS things basically). When probed, the Terengganu PAS Youth chief Mohd Harun Esa stated that the costumes were part of a theme like “marches or cosplay competitions where they showcase their favourite hero weapons.”
We are not sure about weapons, but we might be able to guess their heroes.
Jokes aside, no reports of provocations have been made thus far. However, Article 10 of the Federal Constitution states ‘all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms..’ Hello, pulis?

Guess who served under Tun Mahathir’s administration, is 84 years old, is a former minister, and is involved in the Pandora Papers?

Making amendments to the Federal Constitution requires a two-thirds majority, which means, to change this law, we will need 148 MPs to vote in favour.
The good news – Anwar’s government does have a two-thirds majority.
The bad news – Sometimes, MPs don’t attend Parliament sessions.
Our team at whatsrightmy will be keeping an eye on who votes against this so that we can create memes accordingly. Stay tuned.
|Other updates in Malaysia: |
1. Coming soon a new federal cybercrime law is expected to be tabled in Parliament this July. Our Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said that this is to deal with the advanced methods used by cybercriminals and currently our law is just inadequate to deal with it.
2. Talks on the Federal Constitution being translated to BM. While that doesn’t seem so bad, what’s worrying is the fact that this text is expected to override the English (original) version to be the authoritative text. The issue: Things get lost in translation.
3. Look forward to the soon-to-be-tabled Budget 2023 as we seem to have saved quite a bit of money from not paying salaries to Ministers – Nazri recently stated that he too does not want to be left out (sus flex, but okay).
4. RM 62 million was spent on the oh-so-ugly Keluarga Malaysia branding. We will keep you posted when someone investigates this, but we wouldn’t count on it.
5. The King hopes for a more stable administration i.e. Anwar to remain PM for the full term.
6. The Terengganu state is adamant about banning the Pulau movie. The Film Censorship Board of Malaysia (LPF) however has approved this movie to be published in cinemas throughout the country. Child marriage remains to be legal in the abovementioned state. In the words of the state exco Mohd Nor Hamza, “Cinta macam di lautan. Bila dah berombak susah nak sekat…” … In other words, as long as these waves and oceans don’t form a Pulau, we are good.
