15 Jul 2014 — Muslims throughout the world fast for the entire month of Ramadan, refraining from food and sexual intercourse from dusk to dawn. This fourth pillar of Islam serves to remind Muslims of the less fortunate, as well as to train them in self-control.

While the elderly find it hard to land a job to feed themselves, those with jobs but paltry wages find it difficult to keep a roof over their heads, and depend on the kind-hearted groups which feed them regularly.

29 Jun 2014 — During Ramadan, Muslims perform the Tarawih prayer, which could last till late evening. Tarawih literally means "to rest" in Arabic, but it is hardly as its name suggests. Long portions of the Quran are recited during which time one stands upright, and performs many cycles of movement such as standing, bowing, prostrating, sitting. After each two cycles, one sits for a brief period of rest, and this is why the prayer is called "rest prayer".

Handmade coffins, just as any other traditional craft, are rapidly facing extinction in today's modern, machine-dominated world. In Muar lies a coffin-making workshop – one of the very few left in Malaysia. The Goh brothers are still running the shop, which has over 80 years of history, but they are retiring soon and there are no others to take over. It seems that very soon Muar, and Malaysia, will lose yet another piece of its tradition and heritage.
15 Jun 2014 — One hundred days ago, flight MH370 left Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board bound for Beijing. But the routine Malaysia Airlines red-eye flight has now ended up in the history books as 'an unprecedented aviation mystery'. Where is the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER? This is the multi-million ringgit question on everyone's mind, from the loss-making national carrier to Putrajaya, to plane-maker Boeing and the rest of the world. The largest and most expensive search and rescue operation in aviation history has failed to detect any physical clue regarding MH370's final location after it vanished from civil and military radars less than two hours after taking off.
