Rest in peace, Ah Tan (1953 - 2006)

(Updated) I am sad to hear that my friend and Reformasi activist Omar Tan Abdullah @ Tan Soi Kow/陈信构 @ Ah Tan, 53, passed away at 4.00 a.m. yesterday in the Putrajaya Hospital as the result of heart failure. A Chinese Muslim with a burning sense of justice for all, Omar Tan had contributed the last few years of his life as an active citizen to the historic Reformasi.

He was laid to rest at Tanah Perkuburan Orang Islam, Bangi Lama about an hour ago. Bidding final farewell to him included top leaders of Parti KeADILan Rakyat, Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Datuk Kamarul Bahrin, Azmin Ali, Dr Xavier Jeyakumar, Shamsul Iskandar and SD Johari. Rest in peace, our friend. Salute !

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
