1. In the Eyes of a Tiger
ROCKY DOESN’T CARE ABOUT WINNING All he wants is to go the distance, to prove he is good enough for himself and all the little guys pinning their hopes on an underdog winning the big prize. In the end Rocky loses the fight, but he is still on his feet as the final bell is rung which is his real triumph.
Not because he loses, but to show there is more than one way to win. As Sylvester Stallone comes full circle in his last outing with two of his famous screen legends Rocky and Rambo, he leaves behind a legacy to the world; not with knockout punches or ricocheting machine guns, but a vital message of hope urging audiences to stand up and fight back for their dreams instead of watching them wash down the drain.
It was a miracle how Chuah, a Malaysian journalist living thousands of miles away in the far east could tap into the pulse of Rocky and Rambo to unravel these living truths, as he saw the correlation between the actor’s life and films and understood every nuance of his words. Driven by a mission to impart these powerful secrets to the world, Chuah religiously documented each and every point to inspire readers to get back on their feet, and onto the heat of action, proving that our greatest strength lies within and is inspired from above!

2. Do's and Dont's in Malaysia
Malaysia, truly Asia. This little jingle really does do justice to the old Malaya and the new Malaysia.
More than any Southeast Asian country, Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo and the populous peninsular south of Thailand, sum up the many cultures of Asia.
Blessed with a courteous Muslim population, the Malays, 'original people' – Orang Asli, Dayaks and Ibans – the Peranakan people, and large numbers of Indian and Chinese whose ancestors arrived generations ago, Malaysia is a colourful and harmonious example of multiculturalism at its best.
3. Devil's Place
Ning Somprasong gave up working the streets of Thailand for the more tolerable hotel rooms of Kuala Lumpur. She thinks that if she can send enough money back home, her daughter can avoid making the same choices she had to make.
Terry Fernandez is a struggling musician who’s marrying up. And in the process trading in the life he loves for a world he can’t understand. When he finds his friends dead in his room at The Grand on the night of his bachelor party, he naturally thinks the Minister of Education is trying to kill him.
Chua Chee Ming has been spouting crazy conspiracy theories to anyone who suffers the misfortune of getting into his cab. He thinks the CIA and the Government is trying to kill him because of his theories on human cloning.
Julio Chavez of the CIA hated his posting in Malaysia, until a dead terrorist was found in a hotel room at The Grand. He thinks the Chinese Communist Party is involved somehow.
Suleiman Salleh is back in Malaysia after hiding out in Indonesia for several years. The Most Wanted Man in South-East Asia is on a very important mission but he thinks he’s being stalked by a homosexual.
Fellatio Lim Boon Fatt is a pimp who has lost one of his girls. He thinks the name Fellatio means the Greek God of Power and Wish-dom.
