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 appear 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.)

Today's English words: patient, patient and patience...

As a hospital out-patient, patiently waiting at Ipoh GH, noticed Choy Sun Yeh is simultaneously in Room 1,2,3 & 4.

On the right (no pic), on the door, there was a CNY message in Chinese showing Sum Siong Si Seng... but it is 'For Staff only'!

Anyway, because of Chinese New Year holidays, there were few patients with few doctors on duty which caused the long wait. The queue system usually starts at 9.00 am but on this Thursday, it didn;t start until 10.10 am.

Meanwhile, patience with orchids can be rewarding...

On the other hand, a patient might be called something else when someone takes his words literally...
