That aside, was taking a crap when I decided to "entertain" my self by reading the newspaper today and it totally spoilt my mood. The kind of bullshit some people can spill out is amazing.
Mind you, I'm not much of a supporter of the government nor am I of the opposition. I'm a fence sitter. You do good, I pat you on the back, you do bad, I bash you on my blog (can't bash them anywhere else anyway) . My life is really simple that way. But this one deserve a good bashing and an ass kicking.
PAS: Stop teaching Science and Maths in English
The 55th PAS muktamar that ended yesterday passed a motion urging the Government to immediately abolish the Teaching and Learning of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI).
Rembau delegate Taufik Abdul Ghani, who tabled the motion, said the party objected to the Education Ministry’s move to delay scrapping the PPSMI.“We also call for PPSMI to be abolished immediately and for the return of the old policy, thus uplifting the national language,” said Taufik.

I've never much agreed with out Malaysian way of education. They are very fickle minded. One minute it's this way, the next it would be another. They keep playing ping pong with our education and our future. During my time, I learn both Science and Maths in Bahasa Malaysia and I had it bad, Both my parents learn theirs in English and was never really able to help me when I'm in a fix. Nor could my online friends because I didn't not know then Persamaan Linear was actually Linear Equation.
When I think about it, what was the use of learning something as important as Science in Bahasa Malaysia? Aren't we losing out when we learn Science in Bahasa Malaysia since we cannot understand the English counterparts? Take a look at the stuffs we buy, the shampoo we uses and the cosmetics and whatever else, aren't they in English? Why is it that the politicians wants us all to be ignorant fools and become the world's laughing stock?
National language is one thing, to be a stupid fool is another. I am proud to be Malaysian (minus all monkey dramas) and I respect the national language which is Bahasa Malaysia. But just as well, I do not believe in making a fool out of my self because of some people's blind faith and need to be more "Malaysian" than others. Just because I don't eat with chopsticks, does that make me any less yellow, slitty eyes and Chinese? [Not insulting anyone here, it's just that I am yellow toned and I have slitty eyes]
The standard of English has dropped tremendously since our parent's time. Imagine back then everyone regardless of races spoke good English. English that we can be proud off and even impress the Mat Sallehs. The kids nowadays can't even string together a proper sentence and yet, the government is not doing much to improve the situation and out pops a bunch of idiots that wants us all to be stop learning Science and Maths in English. Soon, we'll be learning English in Bahasa Malaysia!! Sheesh!
I have a feeling that the person who even suggested something like that probably lives on a tree top over looking his durian and rambutan plantation. Basically a frog in a well. A frog who thinks that the well he's in is the world itself, a frog that has never come out of the well and thus never seen the real world. Oblivious in his dark, damp hole. And probably someone who failed his Maths, Science and English BADLY. I'm so super sure he failed his English exams. I'm so sure of it!
I'm seriously getting sick of all the bullshit that's happening and all the funky things that does not passed through the brain being said. Are they all high on something? Seriously, please share and pass whatever shit you're smoking around, maybe then I can understand your way of thinking.
Go and die. Go directly to your grave and die. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.
I know it sounds mean but when you're messing with Malaysia's future to compete with the world, that's the nicest thing I can say to you. Do us all a favour. Thanks.
