From Malaysia-Finance Blogspot:
"...If all ex Malaysians working in Singapore were to quit, Singapore would really crumble. Plenty more can be found helming very critical positions in HK, Australia, NZ, England and the US... to name but a few.
Even with a deteriorating education system for the past 20 years, most Malaysians can still more than hold their own in foreign universities. I guess, we are naturally smarter than the next guy, and thats the God honest truth. I believe if we have the proper nurturing with outposts such as Silicon Valley, the presence of a highly regarded university system ... we would have achieved a lot more than Singapore, South Korea or HK.
But that's all a big IF. "
"I have had enough, and I hope enough of you have had enough. I need not recount the many cases of major corruption, the decimation of the independence of our judiciary, the blurring of lines between state and the regulating bodies. I hope you have had enough of the deceits, lies, hypocrisy, propaganda .... if things stay the same we are already closer to Zimbabwe in more ways than we care to think of. We can forget trying to catch Taiwan, Singapore, HK, ... heck even Thailand and Indonesia seem to drift further away from us.
The greatness is there in us, we have it already, now let's MAKE IT OFFICIAL. We will be the textbook case for "developing economies", for "political reforms in developing countries", "for race relations in politics". We can show the world it is possible, we know its possible already, many of us know it in our hearts. Greatness is within reach."
"Greatness is within our reach, I can feel it, can you feel it too... We have all studied history when we are younger ... now let's make some new history that you and I will be very proud to be part of, the history of our nation growing up ... the template for all developing economies to emulate, the history that really matters."
I wish to add: those who have what it takes have to be more than this...
and be prepared for this...
