I started this blog a couple of months ago to give constructive ideas and recommendations in various aspect, to raise social awareness and to give real contributions in making Malaysia a better place other than just complaining and whining.

However I found that it’s hard to accomplish the mission. In fact the more I wrote about Malaysia social and politics, the more I felt that Malaysia is not really a good place to stay; and I found myself getting a bit depress of the current Malaysia state.

Thus, I have decided to end the short lifespan for this blog. Hope that Malaysia will get better without my tiny effort, and thanks to all that have been reading this blog all this while.

Happy 2007.

Education minister Hishammuddin Hussein is compiling a study on the effectiveness of English as the medium of language for the teaching of Mathematics and Science; the study would be completed by 2008.

That’s rubbish! Shouldn’t the education ministry be keeping a close eye on the effect on the system when it was first introduced a few years ago? And even if Hishammuddin started compiling the report now, why on earth does he need more than a year to give a conclusion?
