Thirty-third anniversary of first 9/11 tragedy

Lucia, my Chilean Australian friend from Monash days in the 1980s, visited Kuala Lumpur recently. After we prayed for the souls of her late parents (who employed me as a cleaner in their factory during one summer), we had an enjoyable evening boozing session in one of the restaurants in Petaling Street.

We remembered her father, an ex-officer of the late President Salvador Allende's Popular Unity government (1970-1973), and mother, a campaign worker for Allende (left) in the 1970 presidential election, showing us the torture-inflicted scars on their bodies and relating to us how the presidential palace was attacked by rightwing troops and fascist thugs on 11 September 1973.

Remember Chile

11 September 1973

Boozing session James? Somehow you came across as a puritan. Just joking.
