JULY 6 — Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll… but many would also say that sex and politics go well together too, as far as scandals go. Recently, the country has been hot with rumours and accusations made by one politician against another… about the latter’s sexual improprieties. Of course, there hasn’t been any concrete evidence.
But this begs the question, for me at least, of how significant a sin is sex when it comes to politics and public office? Let’s think about it. When sportsmen and sportswomen do it, the public seems to be okay with it. When actors do it, it seems to be okay too. And we couldn’t be bothered if our neighbours did it (unless if it’s with our spouse!).
Basically, adultery and sex seems to be something that many people see as personal and has nothing to do with a person’s professional career or life. [Click to read the full article at The Malaysian Insider]

Being a correspondent for The Netherlands’ VPRO Metropolis TV means I get to cover loads of interesting stories. Recently, I got to spend some time with the members of the infamous Obedient Wives Club based in Kuala Lumpur, with thousands of members all over the world! Maybe I should get my wife to join them! Muahaha!

Jiiizzaazz Krrraaiiiss! And we get fooled again!
Couldn’t care less!
By Zan Azlee
MARCH 25 — Sensationalism and yellow journalism are usually considered forms of journalism that are, how shall I put this, distasteful. It’s usually when media organisations exaggerate stories or create hype for issues that really aren’t as significant as they are supposed to be just to sell newspapers.
As a journalist, I try to stay clear of sensationalism and yellow journalism since I want my stories to matter (or so I tend to believe!). That’s why whenever the time comes to write this weekly column, I carefully pick and choose the topics and issues I talk about. I don’t just ramble about anything and everything. Especially when the hot topic in the media at the moment is something so overly sensationalised. [Click to read the rest of the article at The Malaysian Insider]

And here we go… my column this week at The Malaysian Insider.
To snip or not to snip?
By Zan Azlee
6 NOV – Circumcision – the most dreaded word for young Muslim Malay boys between the ages of 10 and 12 years old living in Malaysia. I personally experienced the act at the age of 11. It was absolutely terrifying thinking that a part of your little member is going to be chopped off. I never received an explanation as to why I had to do it. I was just told that I it would make me a man and that now I can get married!
Damn! I didn’t want to get married at 11 years old. I just wanted to watch my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cartoons and play with my nun chucks. If anything I wanted that involved cutting at that time was a haircut like Richard Dean Anderson in my favourite TV show, MacGyver. [Click to read the full article]

I’ve been quite sexed up recently. So I decided to write this for my column at The Malaysian Insider.

MAY 7 — Porn is what makes the world go round. Well, the media world anyway. If you observe, the success of any media depends on whether porn takes a liking to it or not. [click to read the rest of the article]
