  1. I have been doing that nearly one year now. Am currently being softly banned in Sarawak, my home state. Used to write for Sarawak Tribune (sacked for criticising the quality of DUN debate and was honoured by CM directive to all backbenchers to bombard me and get 10 minutes of CM winding up speech), Borneo Post, NST, Bernama, Malaysiakini etc.
