Yes! DBKL has seen the light - Jalan Alor name stays

Good news - the KL Mayor announced the Jalan Alor name remains for that iconic street. Finally they have come to their senses. Maybe they can give pointers to the National Fatwa Council, which claims they will be announcing a ruling on yoga soon. Sounds very ominous...but let us wait and see, when the official annoucement is made.

yes, but you have to wonder how much money spent on this ridiculous exercise - changing the signs, hiring a brand consultant(?), creative agencies, calling for meetings (with buffet meals)...

J2Kfm said...

good. the other day saw the sign also ppl peeled off the name of Kejora. haha ....

Something new everyday in our beloved Bolehland. Who dare say we don't think out of the box(es)?

Just when I thought things were improving with the name Alor sticking, I read the article you referred to "... who have taken up yoga to stop practising it as it could deviate from their belief". Oh my ... Oh my!

A Star blogger posted this article about Yoga in Islamic Prayer which is quiet interesting

i totally dont understand the yoga thingy. i do yoga myself, it teaches me to stretch which helps all internal organs. thats all. nothing about chanting or religion . its just a form of exercise.

CUMI & CIKI said...

yup, we read. yay!

Christy said...

Cheers...for all the protests that worked and knocked some sense into them!~

Jason said...

So, they were REALLY thinking out of the box.

Elaine said...

Well, i hope they make the official announcement soon. I still want to go to Jalan Alor, instead of Kejora, when I get back.

boo_licious said...

ben - neglible sum for these people! U begin to wonder, they must be so free to create all this hoo-hah...

j2kfm - yeah, it was already missing an "e".

tummythoz - we are very "boleh!"

Julian - sigh, hor! Wonder what is it abt all these weird thinking?

radha - I know so many Muslims practising yoga and they say, it does not deter them from their religion.

su-yee - maybe they are mixing it up with Raja Yoga, which is a belief vs an exercise?

cumi & ciki - sad rite???

christy - must make noise or else they think they can get away with it.

jason - hahaha, very much out of the box and out of the world.

elaine - announcement made already, so don't worry, you can have Jalan Alor chicken wings and not Jln Kejora ones.
