Welcome to Alfred Ho’s blog where he discusses retro music and politics in Malaysia.

Alfred has been in contact with me since the last Ijok by-election. He’s passionate about politics and issues that affect the local community. He’s written letters to various personalities about his plight and several had been published in Malaysiakini, and now he’s started blogging.

Alfred is a special singer and now blogger. Do drop by his blog and leave him some encouraging comments.

    Thank you Alfred for your courage. As a handicap person, you are much much better that most people on the street.
    Keep on going…Fred. Admire your will-power.
    I still remember those days watching you singing.
    Cheers.!

    Susan,

    This is david here, lost touch with you a long time ago, since your Malaysiakini days? How have you been faring since?

    Yes, I know Alfred. In fact have been a fan of his since Bakat TV days way back in 1970. Even bought one of his EPs, the one with “Train from Tennessee” and a few others. Not too long ago, bought 3 of his CDs which I have been listening to either at home or while driving.

    Alfred is a good singer, especially the fans of evergreens like my generation. A pity there is no Godfather behind him, to be his patron, to sponsor him, the media to give him the exposure for success. Occasional support for him has been few and far between such that people quickly forgot him.

    Reading his letters to the various people, all the way from the PM, BN politicians and bureaucrats, it is very sad that all chose to ignore him in his plea for their help to the handicapped like him who only want to earn a decent living as an entertainer.

    People like us can help him that much by highlighting his plight in the media and what little we do for Alfred, he appreciates it very much.

    Bloggers like you and others have started the ball rolling and hopefully, something would crop up for Alfred in future.

    Regards,

    David

    I know Alfred Ho since many years ago. Thank you Susan for bringing back my long forgotten memories. We should support Alfred whenever and wherever we can. We can make use of internet technology to assist Alfred selling his ‘singing’. Anyone out there have such skill?

    I come across a blog, ‘The Bitter Stick Girl’ http://stickgal.blogspot.com/ where anyone can ‘donate’ to her. We can use this to assist Alfred.
