Reader of the Month! WORLD REPORT:THE CITY OF T-SHIRTS & FLIP FLOPS
The offbeat track clearly is a place to not underestimate and is not as hopeless and barren as most would think, evidently, as China’s young and upcoming fashion designers choose to set up base in Xiamen instead of a glamorous cosmopolitan city. I’d like to believe that sometimes we all need to retract and take things slowly at our own pace, especially when one is trying to find life balance living in a busy city like KL.

THE BATIK BOUTIQUE
These are stories which need to be told, the ones that truly inspire and prove that there are many out there who are filled with compassion and care. Who’d have thought a friendship which started off with Ana from Kuala Lumpur teaching her new Texan friend Amy Bahasa Malaysia would turn into a fair trade social enterprise and within no time the duo ended up being the perfect team. - 55, Jennifer Millare, Selangor.
SPECIAL COURT FOR SEXUAL CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN
With so much that is going on in the world from crime to corruption, this is by far one of the best news I’ve heard and I'm tremendously happy about. I hope to see the Malaysian criminal justice system consider additional improvements to court practices for child victims. Kudos to Malaysia for being one of the first in South East Asia to have a special court for sexual crimes against children. - 26, Tiara Fidellina, Selangor
