FAM dragged into TorTor battle

TorTor Dance Belongs to Indonesia
STOP STEALING INDONESIAN CULTURAL HERITAGE
WE ARE THE INDONESIAN YOUTH GENERATION NEVER LET YOU STEAL OUR CULTURAL HERITAGE

JANJI KAMI MASIH SAMA DENGAN JANJI ORANG-ORANG SEBELUM KAMI
BAHWA SELAMA MASIH DARAH DAN TULANG KAMI BERWARNA MERAH DAN PUTIH
DAN DENGAN CARA KAMI SENDIRI, TAK AKAN KAMI BIARKAN SEORANGPUN BERANI MENCOBA MENURUNKAN SANG SAKA MERAH PUTIH DARI PUCUK TIANG TERTINGGI
TAK AKAN KAMI BIARKAN SEORANGPUN MENGGANGGU BERKIBARNYA SANG DWI WARNA DI LANGIT BIRU IBU PERTIWI RAWE-RAWE RANTAS MALANG-MALANG TUNTAS #TorTorOPS


The FA of Malaysia's (FAM) website was hacked but it had nothing to do with football this time around.

Indonesians are angry over claims that "the TorTor dance and Gordang Sambilan drums would be added to the Malaysian National Heritage Law."

The issue took center stage on the internet, mainly on Twitter, yesterday as Malaysians and Indonesians were involved in a heated exchange although there were many who were trying to pacify the situation.

The claims were made as published here while Indonesia has demanded an explanation from Malaysia over the issue as reported here.

And to those who have not seen how TorTor is performed, kindly visit here.

This is not the first time FAM's website has been hacked. It was hacked several times as seen here and here.

But I remember speaking to FAM's vice president Subahan Kamal who had in last year said there were efforts (and money allocated) to improve the security features on the official website. I wonder if the features were ever installed or not. 

HD says: Let's drop the TorTor issue and continue to poke fun at the Dutch team that ended their campaign miserably in the Euro 2012 as the 'Ayam Belanda' (turkey) of the tournament.

New parents unhappy with Tung Shin Hospital's policy

Several new and would-be parents are crying foul over Tung Shin Hospital's policy that sees a paediatrician on call, instead of a chosen paediatrician, attending to a newborn upon delivery.
It is a talking point among parents who claim the policy by the Kuala Lumpur-based private hospital would mean paying for the services of a doctor which is not of their choice. Parents alleged the paediatrician of choice is only available after the baby is discharged.
Some of these parents have welcomed their newborn while others are anxiously waiting for the arrival of their bundle of joy. They all insist they should have the right of choice as they are paying for the services. 
For the record, the hospital's administration had put up notices of its policy at its premises. 

Upon clarification, new mothers and/or new parents were informed they will be able to see their paediatrician of choice for their babies' following check-up.
New and soon-to-be parents related their experience:
