University of Malaya (UM) Engineering Direct Intake Bachelor Programmes: 4 Years RM90,000 Total Fees

Why is Universiti Malaya (UM) offering direct intake when it already has a private university: International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW)?

In particular the top 23 in the world university rankings by subject: engineering - electrical? COME AND STUDY ENGINEERING AT ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST FACULTIES

Reflection from the suicide of a childhood friend: we are shaped by our circumstances in life

This Facebook post was first posted on July 9th 2016. It went viral again recently. Ooi Kok Hin:
My friend jumped from the 15th floor last night. An hour ago, I stood there near the spot, looking up to his window.

Of course, it's the 15th floor. How can I forget that all along? I've been there when I was 8-9 years old. We were buddies in the same school in the same neighborhood.

Our neighborhood isn't the kindest there is. There are gangs, which often flourish in a low-income community. Where and who else can you hang out with after school, if not the gangs? He and I hang out with the same circle.

In standard 4, I got a lucky break and was put in the first class of the school. Life, companions, and interests in the first class are distinctly different from the second-last class (The only thing we almost always look forward to was to "settle" a dispute after school hours. Or role-playing WWF at the back when the teacher is not around)

We drifted apart. In the pa…

5 reasons why people "invest" in money game & why you should not judge...

Savwee Investment: If you have friends who have been scammed, read this:

JJPTR is not the only money game that collapsed lately. In this domino like collapse, many "Investors" have lost all their savings.

One told me "I thought if I would diversify among these money games, I would be safe. They said they are "investing" for us by doing business & trading forex and there is monthly return, so it seems legit".
First of all, you have to understand the money game operator's strategies:
Give them a believable story.Give them proof that the concept work.Give them some sweet reward upfront.Ask them to invest only small amount. Why those strategies?
Because they know, if you invest small first, the resistance is low, and when you make some money, you will come in big. That's when they shut down. They also create a story that you WANT to believe. "I am here to save ordinary human".

For the trained eyes, It's obvious that this is a scam. Ho…

Teacher who bikes 135km daily to teach Orang Asli kids at SK Lenjang in Kuala Lipis, Pahang

New Straits Times:
Undeterred by challenges, the father-of-two daily skillfully maneuvers his motorcycle along the muddy tracks, surrounded by a dense forest, to reach the school which caters for 456 Orang Asli students from 17 surrounding settlements.

Saidin, who had been posted at the school for over three years, once fell off his machine while travelling along the uneven road and came across wild animals, but nothing deterred him from performing his duties. [...]
The Kuantan-born, who travels about 135km daily, said he believes the challenge at SK Lenjang is part and parcel of the job especially when serving in the interior, which has yet to be equipped with modern facilities. Interesting write-up on a noble teacher that goes above and beyond to provide the best for indigenous students in the country. Happy Teacher's Day!

How to become a best and outstanding student?

Internationally, the standard phenomenon over the best students is that they are really advanced and know lots of Mathematics. Not sure, where it started but across the nations, the same point is considered. At most times, it tends to think whether the best students are ahead in knowledge and awareness or the scores decide the destiny.
I did mention about Maths but it is rather Science too which most East Asian countries pay attention. This has deliberated to the STEM talent and now progress to STEAM education which includes Arts along with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Just as we come to the topic we released that the best person to evaluate the outstanding students are their teachers themselves as all the teachers are somehow exposed to all level of students and the different ability individuals. When encountered with the high school teacher in a metro city in India, she was so clear to mention the outstanding student is the one who is advanced in all inclusive …
