And how glad I am that Akmal would be finishing school by then, for honestly I think it is a step backward for the country.
A real step backward. No, make that a million steps backward.
I am glad that Akmal is the youngest and he would soon be done with school. And no more after him. But I pity their kids, and your kids, for what they would have to endure in the future and for such a big decision to be decided by those so-called nationalists who could only see from a very narrow and myopic point of view.
Just because of seko nyamuk, habis rumah dibakar. Nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga.
Can we not just persevere with what-ever decision that we make, and not make a political decision?
Would our children and grandchildren and their children and grandchildren be cursing at our graves 50 years from now? Do we start sending our kids to international school, or to overseas? Can I afford it? Most likely not.
But by then, Malay would be an international language and I guess a good part of the world would be speaking Malay. It would have been a great decision then.
Great decision, my foot!
