Ramadhan and non-Muslims

Out of respect to our Muslim friends, we as non-Muslims should avoid eating or drinking in front of our Muslim friends. Non-Muslims need to be show some discretion on this matter during the fasting month.

Why create problems? We live in a world where we have all these different ethnic groups in the classes. So please respect others while teaching and working in the classroom. Every teacher should respect other races, because we wouldn’t want to be saying something that sounds like a joke, but means a lot to the people listening to it.

Aussie scam

Denggi

This is not the type of dengue cases that we're used to see. Previously, it was mainly due to dengue haemorrhagic fever, now patients are coming in with liver failure, brain infection and all sorts of unusual things, this is the one causing the problem. Possibly, this could be related to the virus behaving differently, and there are also cases of second infections which we call immune damage.

S Subramaniam, Health Minister, claiming Malaysia is facing a different kind of dengue cases this year as patients are coming in with far more complicated symptoms than before

 

 

Ringgit impact

If someone relies on imported goods then the impact is high. In terms of the average household most of the produce (that is consumed) is produced locally, so overall the impact will still be manageable.

Abdul Wahid Omar, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, claiming that the ringgit's plunge in value will have a "manageable impact" on Malaysian households

 

 

Spell checker software

It does not involve criminal elements, so we can't take action once they retire. So technically they will escape action.

Ali Hamza, Chief Secretary, insisting that two of the five Education Ministry officers involved in the controversial purchase of spell checker software at a cost of RM280 per unit for Putrajaya schools will not face any action as they have retired
