  1. Batang Kali … it was previously just “a place somewhere in Selangor”. And then it became the place where I was staying, from May until December 2010. Quite a nice place, this area from Kuang until Kuala Kubu Baru, with scenic views of the hills and mountains of the Main Range.

  2. The villigers have shown their faces and spoken. Can we
    have the story from the soldiers involved. Just the same
    camera angle (close -up), the world can judge through
    their expression .
    Please do’nt carry your guilt to the graves, die in peace.
