All kinds of jobs, white or blue collars in Singapore are attracting Malaysians.

We in turn import foreign workers to energise our economy.

No wonder the Ringgit cannot rise.

our income are resource based – co co nut palm. Our industries are from Nons and the aid and subsides are kachang compare to sending students over the rivers and waters. No wonder they are all ikan bilis as compare to China.

The Human Resources Ministry said the 2,307,746 foreign workers are from the industrial, construction, service, plantation, agriculture, domestic work and mining and quarrying sectors.

Can Anwar Eradicate ‘Systemic’ Corruption In Malaysia? https://youtube.com/watch?si=6u98Q5GYYjB-ljxm&v=CtyrWtIhT_U&feature=youtu.be In his effort to crack down on graft, he has gone after influential business and political figures, including former Finance Minister, Daim Zainuddin. The key ally of former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad faces two charges for failing to comply with a notice to declare his assets. Two of Mahathir’ sons, Mirzan and Mokhzani Mahathir, are also under investigation. But Anwar’s critics say his corruption busting campaign is politically motivated, pointing to the dismissal of charges against his own ally in the government, UMNO President, Zahid Hamidi.

If PN ala PAS have agreed to partner Umno BN after GE 15, there will be no Madani government. NMs have no choice but to choose the better of two evils. Just keep complaining until GE16 where it will be another headache for NMs to make a choice. Without Zahid, Umno B will split from PH. Then start another series of complaints. They never end.

>>> TMM did try to re-negotiate the water deal with Singapore during his tenure as PM of Malaysia, not once but twice. 

One more year to go and TMM will be a hundred year old CENTENARIAN.

Education is a fundamental pillar of our society where individuals gain knowledge, skills, and values that are essential for personal development and the betterment of society as a whole. It provides the foundation for individuals to achieve their full potential and contribute positively to their communities. Education also promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity, which are necessary for addressing complex challenges in today’s world.

Moreover, education plays a crucial role in promoting social mobility and reducing inequality by providing equal opportunities for all individuals to access quality education regardless of their background. It equips individuals with the tools they need to succeed in a rapidly changing world and adapt to new technologies and industries.

Furthermore, education fosters a sense of civic responsibility and promotes tolerance, respect, and understanding among individuals from diverse backgrounds. It helps create informed and engaged citizens who are capable of actively participating in democratic processes and shaping the future of our society.

So, being patriotic is one thing but being smart is a whole other thing. 

What this means is while it is important to show love and support for one’s country (being patriotic), it is equally important to make intelligent and rational decisions (being smart). It suggests that blindly following patriotic sentiments without considering the consequences or implications may not always be the best course of action.

Before the by-election, Anil and Aliran are pretty quiet watching on sideline. After the defeat of PKR, suddenly Anil and Aliran have a lot to critize.

Aliran may have done a lot, but somehow the message (content) did not get across? Wrong choice of communication channel (conduit) that is no longer relevant to the present audience (customers) who are used to short messages (concise) like Tik Tok (competition)?

Unfortunately people hardly read Aliran articles, that’s assuming they know Aliran in the first place.

Aliran needs reform, not just Madami government.

” PH still has support of non-Malays in Sg Bakap, says Chow ”

As they say, “don’t be a sore loser.” It’s simple logic.  If the Rakyat believe in PH and are fully supportive of it, they would have come and given PH their full support. But they didn’t. We, the Rakyat, are just fed up with PH’s rhetoric and empty promises.

Some of the ministers do not seem to understand what they are saying, addressing the management of subsidies as reforms.
