刘华才:勿忽视Omicron变种病毒威胁
随著年关将至,虽然政府承诺不限制国人回乡过年和举行小型聚会,然而国防部长希山慕丁指出,政府不排除采取更加严格的行动,包括在更多国家处于高风险时,对此展开出入境限制。不过,他重申,像之前那样的大规模行动管制令不会再发生。目前卫生部正在密切观察Omicron疫情,以及关注世界卫生组织,和受Omicron疫情影响的国家所发表的报告,以便我国可以做好预防工作。正因Omicron变种病毒来势汹汹,我希望不要再发生未完成新冠肺炎疫苗接种者成功出国到沙地阿拉伯朝圣,并在回国后确诊染疫的个案,政府也必须采取补救...

李的洺:马华路,荆棘满途?
自从马六甲和砂拉越两州,在不久前举办州选之后,我国政坛便浮现出一种颇为吊诡的气氛。朝野政客在此模棱两可的气氛中,传出有柔佛州解散州议会举行州选举的可能,一时间,又有政客指出农历春节后,第15届全国大选也同时举行。随著政坛的种种论调,以及政客的猜测,自然而然的人民也逐渐把目光投射在这些波谲云诡的政治课题上,致使坊间上,也渐渐有人根据目前大马政坛的氛围议论起,国内的党派势力间,究竟如何如何的,恍惚间,让人沉默在迷惑之中,难的好安生。至于第15届大选后,谁能主王朝?这些未来的事,根据目前的时态评估,并...

黄金祥:柑,是这样送的吗?
大约七八年前,我的两个宝贝女儿,一个在念初中,一个还在小学。一日,两姐妹因故吵了起来,大姐破口就骂:“傻X!”然后就变成“你才是傻X!”的互相对骂。两人的骂战恰好被我这个老爸听在耳里,那一份震惊,不在话下。我虽是个老粗,但是在家里绝不讲粗口。孩子高中之前,在家看的电影,有血腥、色情或儿童不宜的,一概过滤。还好两个女儿生性乖巧,不像好奇心重的男生一样,会用手机搜寻色情网站之类。岂料,堵住了家门,“学校”这道门却没堵好,孩子的粗口,就是学自班上同学的。处于青春期的中学生,对流行文化,特别是带点离经叛...

庄惠娴:成长?长成
几年前看了年轻校友在华仁中学编导的本土原创舞台剧《快高长大》,引发了我对教育的反思。剧中的阿安阿乐两兄弟是两个不同的个体。阿安是传统教育体制下的学生,怀抱著梦想为未来铺路,一切按照既定的方程式完成他的人生。这样的孩子不需要父母担心,也不会成为社会的负担,反而为社会为家人带来许多的荣誉感。从另一个角度看阿安,我看不到他的快乐。为了课业与前途而紧绷著的神经,让他快乐不起来,只有从神明或神主牌那里得到心灵的慰藉。他的成功取决于他为人处事的正确态度。这样的孩子是被寄予厚望的,也在成长与祝福的催促下“长成...

覃心靖:天下本无事,庸人自扰之
我刚从小学升上中学那段期间,曾经在一本书中读到过这样的诗句:“女儿悲,嫁个男人是乌龟。女儿愁,绣房窜出个大马猴。女儿喜,洞房花烛朝慵起。女儿乐,一根(毛几)(毛巴)往里戳。”如此露骨的性爱描述,对那个还在发育阶段的我来说,仍似懂非懂。却对最后一段,现在电脑输入法无法显示出来的两个汉字,看得特别兴奋,于是我就像是一个坏掉的唱机,一直不断重复唱著:“女儿悲,嫁个男人是乌龟...。”后来的下场,是被老爸狠狠地教训了一顿,这个坏掉的唱机总算停了下来。现在回头看来,我当年所接触到的这些文字,不但“失格”、...
