Wednesday morning.

Our tax dollars runneth. Another dumb-*ss question that will tickle ’em silly and bring the wolf out. Hilarity guaranteed. Better than viagra.

Q3. PR-1122-L9472
Datuk Ir. Hasni Bin Haji Mohammad [ Pontian ] minta MENTERI BELIA DAN SUKAN menyatakan apakah pendirian Kementerian terhadap peragawati yang berpakaian seksi pada perlumbaan kereta Super GT yang diadakan di Malaysia setiap tahun.

(Loosely translates to – What does the Ministry for Youth and Sports have to say about hostesses in hot clothes at Super GT race held annually in Malaysia?)

How would you answer if you were the good Minister?

Beth Yahp, novelist and author of The Crocodile Fury (1992; winner of the 1993 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for First Fiction and the 1993 New South Wales Ethnic Affairs Commission Award for Fiction), will be with us during the launch.

She flew in late Thursday night from Australia. Beth will be reading an excerpt from her very popular short story, In 1969.

She will be joined by Chee Sek Thim, artist and director of Five Arts Centre.

Sek Thim’s musical drama, “That Was the Year”, is playing at KLPac at the moment. It ends on Sunday, 13 May at 3 pm. The musical is based on In 1969.
