I like Tengku Razaleigh, the blogger

I have just followed the blog Razaleigh.com. I remember Tengku Razaleigh vaguely from the Semangat 46 era. Back then, I was probably in my 20s and early 30s and Chinese like me, did not really care about UMNO, it’s spilt or disunity because those things don’t affect us.

Moreover, during Tun M’s dynasty, his word is god to us and nothing he did was ever wrong. Or so we thought because news come to us only through The Star and the radio.

Now, no one can tell a lie and get away with it. Now, I don’t want my children to grow up being fed with only one stream of news. I want my children to develop a wider vision, see bigger horizon and have a mind of their own.

So, Tengku Razaleigh blog is like a breath of fresh air to the putrid blogosphere of politicians slime. Tengku has the helicopter view to see a bigger picture of where our nation is heading. His English is impressive. He is a master in putting so little words and yet, expresses such big opinions.

While I am talking about nation, I wish to embed this video which I did during my course on Citizen Journalism. It is part of our exam and we were given 2 – 3 hours to create a 1 minute video clip from what was given to us. I have added 29 more seconds and a few more photos into this video last night after I watched in horror the kind of things they did to Kugan. (malaysiakini BM version shows the amount of injuries inflicted on him.)

I know the script is rather corny, sounds like lyrics from Michael Jackson’s songs. But we were working under tremendous pressure because we have to learn to use a video editing software foreign to all of us, cut clips from two 7-9 minutes video, join with whatever photos we can find on the internet and blend in music and narration. So, don’t lah kritik too much, ok? My #3 son already said I curi Jesus’s words. I wonder where he gets the idea but looking back, yeah, probably I was a little bit over ‘inspirational’.

  1. So, now we are your short clip critics oledi ah? Okay lah, for first timer. But don’t let our Botak Albar see this, he will think it is a threat to the government……because you didn’t put his face in the clip loh!
    How much did you have to pay for this course again? Sorry keh poh ci a bit..

  2. Actually, it’s cool for first timer! I can’t comment much because I’ve never done a video within 2-3 hours. My fastest record was 11-minute video using Adobe Premiere in 5 days. 🙂

  3. david – Wow, five days! I think our trainer is really great lah. Otherwise, all of us won’t be able to come up with anything cos the buttons are all so foreign to me. I am probably the most experience in making videos (but with iMovie and Windows Movie Maker) and yet, I find all those buttons so foreign. So, my coursemates are all jenius lah, they can learn AP Pro plus do video within a weekend. Our trainer is Malaysiakini video editor, Maran.

    toolan – It is free. But we need to put a deposit of RM200 because they sent all the trainers and lecturers from KL to train us. If we didn’t complete the course, or just play-play, deposit will be forfeited.

  4. Keng!!! Were you the narrator for the video? 😛

    Video editing is not easy to do. I can’t understand how to use Windows Movie Maker also.
