The problems with boarding schools

Some people believe that the biggest problem with boarding schools is that students are typically spoon-fed with the materials they need for acing exams. In doing so, they lose the chance to develop the capacity for self-education and never fully learn how to learn — perhaps the most critical skills of all. Throughout my formal […]

Migrate, and don’t go back

It is truly saddening to see just how easily some people forget their roots. To be able to suggest to their fellow countrymen to migrate and don’t go back, just because they watch a video of a certain politician saying certain things that they don’t agree with, reflects a total absence of patriotism and a […]

The sad state of Malaysian web hosting industry

Anyone involved in web development would know that whatever website you develop would be useless without publishing it online on the web. That’s the heart of the web hosting industry’s business – hosting websites on servers so that people around the world can access the websites through internet. It is therefore a crucial part of […]

Minimum wage

I have been wondering why Malaysia doesn’t have a minimum wage law. In New Zealand, every single employer are obligated by law to pay at least NZ$12.50 per hour to their employees, regardless of their profession or position in the company.

Ever since PAS Vice President Husam Musa said that PAS and the Pakatan Rakyat would have enforced the hudud and qisas if Pakatan Rakyat were to take over the Federal Government of Malaysia, there has been a stream of oppositional reactions voiced by many leaders of many political parties. All of those leaders are from […]


John and I often spoke about the guards, and how the word ‘terrorist’ seemed totally inappropriate. It is a term too frequently applied by people to certain others and serves only to shore up their own prejudices. ‘Some terrorists wear pin­striped suits John,’ I would argue. ‘They hide their terrorism behind institutions of law or […]

The leader I want to see

The current political situation in Malaysia nowadays has surely invited a lot of commentaries from my fellow friends in the Sri KDU IB Community. It has also exhort some individuals into appearing as ‘inspired’ of becoming the nation’s next leader in the future, and claim that they will supposedly ‘repair’ the country and vow to […]
