KANGAR (Bernama) -- Some people who call themselves cat lovers are only willing to adopt cats that they find beautiful or adorable. They would not mind spending a small fortune to ensure their pet felines receive the best treatment and remain beautiful.
It is a different story with Mohd Taufiq Md Zain, 53, and Khairunizam Nayan, 32. These true cat lovers care for cats so much that they would adopt and invest in strays that have been neglected, diseased, maimed and those many would no longer find cute.
They started taking in stray cats into their home in 2015. In just that year alone, they housed 100 cats in a large cage in Mohd Taufik’s home in Taman Harmoni, here.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Just mention the names of people like badminton legend Datuk Lee Chong Wei, United Kingdom-based trainee surgeon Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri and Asia’s Got Talent Season 3 runner-up Yaashwin Sarawanan (better known as the Human Calculator) and all Malaysians will swell with pride.
A glance at their social media accounts will reveal the outpouring of support and appreciation from the public, more so youths, for these Malaysians who brought glory to the nation.
Malaysian youths, in general, have never shied away from giving their unstinted support and encouragement to their national heroes, regardless of their race and religion. And, when the need arises, they can always be seen rallying around to carry out community services and help the unfortunate.

BANDA ACEH (Bernama) -- A visit to Aceh, a popular destination among Malaysian tourists, is not all about viewing its post-tsunami rehabilitation.
As this writer discovered during her maiden tour of the Indonesian province last month, there are also other attractions such as Taman Putroe Phang which has relics that indicate the existence of close ties between Aceh and the state of Pahang some four centuries back.
Aceh has been in the news ever since it was struck by the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami on Boxing Day in 2004 which left more than 170,000 people dead and many more homeless.
