CATpeople: Flight of the Rockets

If you're as uncle as I am, you'd remember when BN's Song Swee Guan was running for Kuching against DAP's Sim Kwang Yang at that time. I can't remember exactly who was defending the seat, but it felt like the DAP fella was.

Things were pretty much different then from today. I'm sure there was corruption at that time but maybe it wasn't so obvious, or that somehow everyone still had a piece of the pie, or that everyone was still naive.
This was published before the elections. BN ultimately won.

Sabah Got Guts

Look at what those guys in Sabah are doing.

Oh man, just look at them. They look so happy.

They look like they're on a joy ride on the roller coaster in Disneyland.

It seems unlikely, but I hope that on Monday, every Malaysian will have that joyride too.

Of Petrol Hikes & Ripping Shirts

Malaysians are still reeling from the recent incredulous price hike in petrol. It's a phenomena that's happening everywhere around the world. But somehow, you know that there must be something that can be done about it, but the people who are supposed to be doing something aren't doing anything.

This is the thing that is making people rip their shirts in anger around the world.

Hulk Hogan is pissed, but he can't do much cos he's retired from WWE.

Even Superman couldn't do much cos BN is still in power.

The Hulk is as pissed as ever but this is about all that he can do.

Even Michael Jackson is losing his cool, & literally his shirt.
He owes a whopping USD23 million & now he has to sing
in Las Vegas to virtually pay off his debts.

It will be a long & arduous journey. May God save us all.

CATpeople: Going to School in Malaysia

Some things never change. I did this cartoon back in 1995, but when I look around now, the situation is still the same. Our kids are still subjected to the same physical torture.

A Malaysian Superhero in Contrast

This is an American Superhero. Well, supervillian to be exact.

When this bugger threatens you, you'd better take it seriously cos he's got a fancy helmet, sexy leather gloves, leather boots & expensive cape.

Do not make fun of his helmet cos he's got the secret power of the universe under that thing & he will not hesitate to use it. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

But little do people know that deep in the heart of Malaysia, there exists a similar superhero, with similar powers. Behold! They call him...

The Magnetic Man!!!

Be forewarned of my superpowers! Bow down to my superiority
now or else face my wrath
for I can & will stick one more
fork onto my body & make you scream in agony!

I know, appearance wise, he's not really something to behold. Heck, I mean he doesn't even look like a superhero. I mean he's a shirtless Grandpa. And you're probably going to find him at the kopitiam more than at the top of Wisma Ting Pek Khing fighting crimes.

(And he was probably spending time with his grown up children & grandchildren celebrating Father's Day on Sunday at Holiday Inn)

But please, do not underestimate his power. For he can drag buses with a steel plate under his powerful armpit.

Unlike Malaysia, I think Western superheroes somehow have everything going for them. They got the sexy costumes & they've got the sidekicks.

Just look at Magneto. I mean look at his sidekick.

If you can have Rebecca Romijn as your sidekick, who doesn't want to be a superhero?

But unfortunately in Malaysia, nothing will ever be as good. Guess who Grandpa Magnetic Man has for his sidekick?

Introducing his grandson, The Magnetic Boy Wonder.
"Patience boy, when you grow up, you can do the hammers too. "

CATpeople: Satok Flyover

This is another one of my CATpeople cartoons that I did for Sarawak Tribune a long time ago.

The Satok flyover was the first one built in Kuching ever in 1995. That was about 8 years ago. Please forgive me but generally the people of Kuching had never seen a flyover before at that time, & it was a big thing.

It meant a lot, to a lot of people. It was a sign that Kuching was growing, & can be on par & play with the big city boys then. It meant that Kuching was no longer a sua koo (mountain auntie) hilly billy town.

Well, Kuching has been rapidly progressing & developing, & eversince then there's been two more flyovers - one at 3rd Mile & Ting Pek Khing's at BDC.

Well, this one was the very first.
