Boy did I feel naked when I bought the papers this afternoon.

… because there was my big-ass mugshot for all and sundry to see!

I value my privacy enormously and am thankful that the folks at Star were kind enough to indulge me with a caricature to keep my identity under wraps all these years. But when I got the sms that moving forward, a photo byline was compulsory, I knew my anonymous days were numbered.

Then again, I may be making a mountain out of a molehill. As my down-to-earth parents put it: “Aiya, nobody will notice. So small only the photo! Why don’t want to let people see? Can become famous like Tay Tian Yan …(that famous political columnist in Sin Chew).”


Thanks to the Star folks for going the extra mile digging up those B/W photos of the good doctor.

I would like to correct a couple of factual errors:
1. The good doctor is addressed as Dr Majumder, not Dr Madhuri.
2. She is 78 years old, not 80 years old.

On a different note, I would like to express my appreciation to my reader Shehan for taking the time to design my brand new banner 🙂

It’s soooo me, thanks a million!
