How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Some Korean influence

The first time I have any dealing with anything Korean was when my son got a job at SK Global in KL. Later, he bought his first car, Hyundai Accent, not so much because of it being Korean, but because Kah Motor Bintang was dealer for a limited number of Hyundai models since they lost their exclusive sole dealership for Honda.

I have heard from a daughter that some of her Malay friends are very into Korean serials and songs and can even sing them. Of course, there are so many Koreans in Malaysia that there are certain residential areas in KL like Mont Kiara and Ampang where we can find their almost exclusive residential enclaves, as well as Korean restaurants and even Korean supermarket!

Then, one of my wife's nephews married a Korean wife! Well, it isn't easy picking up a foreign language, so I believe parents-in-law and daughter-in-law have to communicate in English. But their grandson is definitely speaking Korean, being in close contact with the other in-laws in Australia.

Out of the blue, my niece shared a link in Facebook:

It was such a pleasant surprise for me to know that my grand nephew (sister's grandson) won a Korean singing contest!

Since I have not heard him sang any song, let alone, Korean, found this in Youtube to get an idea...
