Lazy students kena scolded!

MEI v. scolded

Sisuahlai's take on The Star: PM laments Malaysians’ lack of focus and effort

Kong pun boyong! (That is Hokkien meaning "Beyong hopelessness! Saying it won't make any difference!" or in Malay "cakap also tak guna!"). Maybe that was what the Malaysian Prime Minister felt when he addressed a group of students in Western Australia. But he is the PM, he needs to say something.

He said,"If we are not men of quality, don’t hope to get anywhere. If you find your lessons too hard, try harder.”

He went on,"We must have good character, values, honesty, integrity and accountability. If you are clever, but a liar and a cheat, there’s no point."

Ok, let me decipher what he was trying to say:-

(1) No quality, no hope.

(2) If a task is hard, try harder. Still harder, try even harderest. If even harderest, try again, even more harderestest. If you don't, don't return home. (last sentence, I add one)

(3) If you are clever, then you must not be cunning and bluff your way to easy success. In other words, don't be so clever.

Now, my advice to Malaysian Students overseas: STAY FOCUSED, BUT DON'T LET THE PRESSURE OF EXPECTATION GETS TO YOU!


Life is not easy. Don't make it harder. Sisuahlai.
