We Malaysians can bitch all we want about our tiny neighbour down south but we must admit we have so many things in common.

SINGAPORE, Oct 23 – Singapore’s parliament decided on Tuesday to keep a ban on sex between men, with the prime minister saying the city state should keep its conservative values and not allow special rights for homosexuals.”Singapore is basically a conservative society … and we want to keep it so,” Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in a rare speech to parliament.
The chamber passed a bill on Tuesday for an amended penal code that kept the ban on sex between men, but included other changes such as legalising oral and anal sex between heterosexual adults, a spokeswoman at the home affairs ministry said.
Tough eh! What they are saying essentially is that homosexuals can’t do each other at all….not according to law. But Heterosexuals can violate each other’s ass with consent. Baffling.
Hmm…Singapore is prudish alright, but so are many other countries in the world. Life certainly ain’t so happy for gays these days.
