Anwar Ibrahim is free at last

I remember the day they seized Anwar.

I was in Australia at the time, in my final year of university.
All we have here is foreign TV, where they only show images of anarchy and chaos breaking out.
I anxiously called my parents' home in KL, not far from Anwar's residence, because I was genuinely worried for my family.

That was the moment I decided that I would NEVER return to Malaysia again.
The recent events have changed things, given me hope.
Viva democracy!

Reading back your older entries. We actually talk about that among the Malaysian RBJers in our forum. You and I share very similar views. This should be of interest to you. http://forums.ricebowljournals.org/index.php?s=5fa2c5b90d3fe707083a8e8f3756dd29&act=ST&f=18&t=12158&st=0
