October 2, 2013

Title : Dare not to think about Co-existent

It translated piece of editorial page in RNDP journal issued in Oct 2012..they even cited Hitler and Echimen as German hero..

THE QUESTION that needs to be asked of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi is: Are you a racist? The same question should also be asked of Burma’s President, Thein Sein.

To go or not to go

Source: To go or not to go CONTRADICTHEORY By DZOF ADZMI in StarOnline

Recently, a friend of mine posted an announcement on Facebook that she was leaving Malaysia. She was sick and tired of its failings as a country, and she saw no progress at all.

My initial reaction when reading this was sadness, followed by an urge to ask her to stay and help make this country better – forgetting that she has basically been trying to do that for the last few years in her own way.

Another part of me wanted to say “Never mind the idiots”, but I suspect she believes that it is the idiots who get the most press coverage, and evidence of their idiocy is prevalent 24/7.

But why should I try to stop her, if at the end of the day she believes that leaving the country is what’s needed to be better? I myself advocate going abroad to study or for work experience as it develops a more rounded view of the world with all its eccentricities and foibles.

WE have often heard how brain drain is a vicious cycle and how this cycle has affected Malaysia’s current and future growth prospects.

The country, despite seeing a large diaspora in comparison to the population, is a “receiving country” with as many as 2.4 million immigrants according to the World Bank‘s 2011 Migration and Remittances Factbook.
Of these, some 40% have secondary education while in recent years, some 40% had no formal education at all.

During my Primary School days in Kingswood Kalaw, it was popular and I could swing 1500-5000 continuously without dropping once. BUT, now, I saw hula hoops at my friend’s Sports Shop, I am embarrassed and disappointed because I even failed to successfully swing ONCE because of my protruding tummy.

Chindian is an informal term used to refer to a person of both Chinese and Indian ancestry. There are a considerable number of Chindians in Malaysia and Singapore, where people of Chinese and Indian origin immigrated in large numbers during the 19th century. There are also a sizable number living in Hong Kong and smaller numbers in other countries with overseas Chinese and Indian diaspora, such as Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana in the Caribbean, as well as in Thailand, the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
