Nur Amalina turut dipolitikkan..

Nur Amalina Che Bakri pernah menggemparkan negara satu ketika dulu dengan kejayaan beliau memperolehi 17A1 dalam Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, satu pencapaian akademik yang belum pernah diperolehi oleh sesiapa pun sebelum ini.

Baru-baru ini YB Zulkifli Noordin membangkitkan kesahihan berita kegagalan Amalina dalam pengajian beliau di Universiti of Edinburgh sewaktu sesi perbahasan di Parlimen dengan Timbalan Menteri Pendidikan Tinggi, Datuk Sai­fuddin Abdullah. Menurut Zulkifli, ramai menggunakan cerita ini untuk memperlekehkan keupayaan anak-anak Melayu bersaing di peringkat antarabangsa, dan memperlekehkan sistem sekolah kebangsaan, dan sebaliknya terlalu mengagung-agungkan sekolah lain!

Zulkifli menjelaskan di dalam blog beliau, Amalina baru sahaja menamatkan pengajian di tahun kedua. Yang paling membanggakan, pihak Univerisit Edinburgh telah menawarkan Nur Amalina membuat pengajian tambahan peringkat ijazah dalam Pharmacology with Industrial Experience kerana kejayaan cemerlang beliau. Ini bermakna Nur Amalina akan mendapat ijazah berkembar insyallah setelah beliau selesai pengajian beliau iaitu Ijazah MBChB dan M Med Sc.

Tak kisah berapa A1 yang beliau perolehi, yang penting usaha berterusan mencapai kecemerlangan. Kisah kejayaan demi kejayaan adalah cerita.. kisah kejatuhan selepas kejayaan adalah berita.

I'm Back

Happy Halloween. Some shoplots in KL's shopping malls are lightly decorated with creepy sightings promoting the up coming Halloween. Some other places are still enveloped with Eid Fitr and Deepavali things. I heard a group of teenagers happily talking and giggling of what to do and where to go for Halloween on my way to work in a Light Railway Transit (LRT) train. Well, nightclub is surely one of the places they want to hang out with their friends. My wife and I went to Hong Kong Disneyland for Halloween last year. It was a great escapade. More info on Halloween here.

Here in My Home-Malaysian Artistes For Unity

Pete was juggling tomatoes. Bored. So he telephoned a few friends. “How about getting together to make an anti-racism national unity song and music video?” All said yes without hesitation. Not because pete threatened them with a sharp and rusty knife. But only because they love Malaysia.

The contingent swelled to 52 people a few days later. It included filmmakers, dancers, singers, producers, musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, footballers, activists, celebrities, students and a florist. Nobody would be paid. Yet they were enthused. See the artistes

They gathered to record the song. It had a catchy chorus and was able to induce a mass sing-along. They named it ‘here in my home’. The party now included more than 120 people. But the budget remained exactly zero.

Everyone turned up for the video shoot. Both the recording and the video would be given away for free. A gift to the nation, from those who love Malaysia to those who feel the same. Read more.

Campukak: Sad over what’s going on in Malaysia ‘Here in My Home’ at the moment. The MV directed by Yasmin Ahmad and sang by Malaysian Artistes. It's about the hope of all Malaysian. Watch it, Here it, Feel It, Instil it. Happy 51st Birthday MALAYSIA!
