The Cicak (lizard in Malay) is climbing up the wall. San Francisco-based student Poh Si Tang leads a virtual world of young Malaysians scattered across the world to blog on politics, society, education, media and business back home. She takes the role of managing editor, besides toiling her busy schedule as a student and reporter at a community newspaper in the Bay Area.
Her team members have just turned 21: Ng Khai Lee, Kristel Leow (Seattle), Brian Ong (New York), Rachel Leow (UK, who wrote for International Herald Tribune when she was 16), Nurjehan, Lee Hui Huang, Audery Tang (San Francisco), Ana A (Silicon Valley), Jason Lim (London) and The Marquis (so-named due to work-hazard related constraints). They share Poh Si's belief in her search of free speech and expression.
