TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

SAINS DAN MATEMATIK 35

 

1. Semasa saya memegang jawatan Menteri Pendidikan sementara, saya telah kemukakan cadangan lama saya, iaitu pengajaran Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris.

2. Saya berpendapat bahawa ilmu sains dan hisab (Matematik) amat penting bagi menentukan kejayaan rakyat kita di masa hadapan.

3. Sains dan Matematik ini tidak sama dengan bidang-bidang ilmu yang lain umpamanya bidang Geografi ataupun Sejarah.

4. Bidang Geografi dan Sejarah tidak berubah. Apa yang dicatatkan, yang kita belajar tidak berubah dari masa ke semasa kerana ianya tidak dinamik, tidak bergerak dengan kajian dan ilmu-ilmu yang baru.

5. Sebaliknya dalam bidang Sains, kita dapati bahawa hampir setiap hari ilmu yang baru hasil penyelidikan diperkenalkan. Ilmu-ilmu pula diguna untuk berbagai-bagai barang buatan kegunaan kita. Dalam bidang komunikasi, hubungan tanpa wire (wireless) sudah begitu maju sehingga ia mempengaruhi cara perniagaan.

6. Umpamanya kalau kita lihat telefon bimbit. Sebenarnya telefon bimbit ini adalah satu pusat pemancar, radio (broadcasting) station, yang memancar suara kita ataupun apa yang diperkatakan oleh kita, bahkan gambar juga dapat dipancar sejauh mana tanpa apa-apa hubungan yang solid seperti wayar dan sebagainya.

7. Sebaliknya di zaman dahulu apabila kita mempunyai alat pemancar radio kita perlu adakan bangunan yang besar yang dilengkapi bermacam-macam alatan yang diperlukan untuk kita guna ataupun kita hantar mesej melalui udara ke mana-mana tempat.

8. Kemudian daripada itu kita tahu daripada situlah bermula usaha untuk mengadakan telefon yang tidak mempunyai wayar. Pada mulanya ini sukar dilakukan, alatannya besar dan sukar untuk diguna dan dianya tidak begitu terang suaranya.

9. Tetapi kita juga tahu hari ini telefon bimbit yang kita simpan dalam saku kita boleh diguna oleh kita dimana-mana sahaja tanpa alatan yang berat dan kita boleh bercakap, boleh hantar mesej, bahkan gambar sejauh mana yang kita ingin. Kita boleh bercakap dengan seorang yang berada di Amerika umpanya seolah-olah dia berada di tepi kita. Suaranya begitu terang sehingga kita kenal suara siapa. Dan kita juga boleh dapat gambar.

10. Skype umpamanya bermakna kita boleh lihat orang yang bercakap dan dianya boleh lihat kita.

11. Ini semua adalah hasil penyelidikan yang berterusan sepanjang masa. Jadi di masa hadapan pun kita percaya akan ada lagi banyak hasil penyelidikan yang mungkin memberi kemudahan-kemudahan lain kepada kita.

12. Tetapi oleh kerana hasil penyelidikan ini tidak dibuat oleh kita, dibuat kebanyakannya oleh orang Barat dan bagaimana dianya dapat menjadi begitu ditentukan oleh ahli penyelidik di Barat dan kebanyakan daripada tulisan mereka adalah dalam Bahasa Inggeris, maka kalau kita faham Bahasa Inggeris agak mudah kita access ilmu yang baru ini.

13. Jika kita nak terjemah kita perlu seorang yang pakar dalam Bahasa Inggeris dan Bahasa Melayu dan juga pakar dalam bidang sains berkenaan.
14. Tak ramai orang kita yang mempunyai kebolehan seperti ini dan mereka pula tidak ingin menjadi penterjemah sepanjang hayat mereka. Mereka boleh bekerja sekejap-sekejap sahaja.

15. Jadi ini bermakna bahawa kita terputus daripada hasil siasatan yang sedang berlaku sepanjang masa. Dengan itu kita akan ketinggalan dari segi ilmu dan penggunaan ilmu-ilmu ini untuk pelbagai urusan kita.

16. Tetapi kita dapati kalau kita belajar dalam Bahasa Melayu kita cuma boleh dapat ilmu yang asas sahaja, yang diterokai berzaman dahulu.

17. Umpamanya kita semua boleh berkata dalam Bahasa Melayu iaitu campuran antara dua atom hidrogen dan satu atom oksigen, kita akan dapat air. Itu kita boleh.

18. Tetapi apabila kita sampai kepada tahap bercakap berkenaan dengan digitalisation, dengan artificial intelligence, dengan macam-macam lagi perkara dan kemudahan baru kita sukar untuk faham ini kalau kita tidak berbahasa Inggeris.

19. Tetapi kalau kita berbahasa Inggeris, bukan sahaja kita akan faham ilmu yang baru ini, kita juga dapat menulis, bahkan kita dapat berbincang dengan rakan-rakan daripada negara lain yang tidak faham Bahasa Melayu tetapi faham Bahasa Inggeris.

20. Mereka, yang tidak faham sains dalam bahasa Inggeris, akan dapati tidak dapat ikuti perbincangan dan mereka tidak akan perkenalkan ilmu mereka kepada mesyuarat ataupun konferens. Akan rugilah kita.

21. Dan juga kita akan dapati kita tidak boleh berbincang dengan mereka. Kalau kita cuma bercakap dalam Bahasa Melayu sedangkan mereka bercakap dalam Bahasa Inggeris.

22. Jadi kita dapati di Malaysia ini di mana kita mempunyai penduduk berbagai kaum, kalau kita belajar Sains dalam Bahasa Kebangsaan, orang Cina pula belajar dalam Bahasa Cina dan orang India dalam Bahasa India, apabila ketiga-tiga ini bertemu untuk berbincang, mereka tidak dapat faham apa yang pihak yang lain itu berkata.


23. Sebab itulah kita berpendapat bahawa mempelajari Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris adalah satu perkara yang penting supaya kita dapat kejar perkembangan yang terbaru ilmu ini. Kita boleh baca kertas-kertas ilmiah yang disediakan oleh para penyelidik. Dan kita tidak akan tertinggal di belakang kerana kita tidak dapat kejar ilmu baru yang datang dalam Bahasa Inggeris.

24. Ya, memang Bahasa Inggeris bukan bahasa kita. Bahasa kita ialah Bahasa Melayu, tetapi kita tahu Inggeris adalah satu bahasa yang amat penting sehingga kita mengadakan kursus-kursus untuk menguasai Bahasa Inggeris.

25. Bahasa Inggeris bukanlah sukar sangat bagi kita. Kalau kita kejar bahasa ini dengan menggunakan alatan-alatan yang baru, termasuk yang terdapat di Internet dengan mudah kita boleh menguasai Bahasa Inggeris.

26. Kalau kita secara serius kuasai Bahasa Inggeris maka mengejar ilmu Sains dalam Bahasa Inggeris tidak menjadi masalah kerana kita boleh bercakap dalam Bahasa Inggeris, dan kita boleh berbincang berkenaan dengan isi kandungan penyelidikan yang dilakukan oleh kita ataupun orang lain.

27. Saya berpendapat bahawa yang pertama ialah kita mesti belajar Bahasa Inggeris sehingga fasih dalam Bahasa Inggeris sama seperti kita fasih dalam bahasa kita, Bahasa Melayu.

28. Selepas itu kita akan belajar Sains dalam Bahasa Inggeris juga, dan Matematik pun sama semacam itu kerana tanpa pengetahuan ini kita akan ketinggalan dari segi ilmu duniawi.

29. Saya harap Kerajaan tidak akan gugur peralihan mempelajari Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris.

    Dear Dr M,

    We, Sir..MALAYSIANS are an inter-complementary SINGULAR UNIT. Please ENOUGH OF RACISM, ENOUGH OF PITTING US AGAINST EACH OTHER. If you deeply understand the purpose of your LONG LIFE, it is to UNDERSTAND this FUNDAMENTAL: “Where there is division, there must be conflicts.”

    Conflicts are never peaceful nor intelligent…it wears a nation down.

    Let’s transcend and see through the game, the optical illusion.

    Just as the COLOURLESS LIGHT, the ‘UNSEEN’ substance COLOURS the objective UNIVERSE into multiplicity and diversity of cognitive experiences. The differentiated entities of race/ethnicity are just ‘down-stream’ products, a refracted and modulated play of ‘God-Stuff’ called CONSCIOUSNESS. Let’s see through God’s bluff.

    Let all the races, like colours of the rainbow integrate into its FULLEST BROADEST BANDWITH as colourless light sans the deceptive ‘refractive distortion’, without discrimination, as MALAYSIANS; and not pander to RACE SUPERIORITY.

    If you want more STEVE JOBS and BILL GATES or better, something NOVEL…let’s improve on EUGENICS, end in-breeding, keep us FREE-RANGE to love one another without ETHNORELIOCENTRISM interposing. I hope we can make a collective effort to pare down the detrimental falsehood perpetuated by our divisive ‘Cultural Inheritance’. Time for a new way forward. No?

    Siapa bilang Melayu tak pandai niaga.?

    Hujung Disember 2019, hari terakhir dpt meniaga di UpTown Danau Kota…
    Akibat dari campurtangan YB WangsaMaju, AhSoo Tan Yee Kew, kebanyakan peniaga dipindahkan ke BAZARIA WANGSA MAJU.

    Namun begitu, dari lebih 800 peniaga, hanya 500 peniaga telah dipindahkan sedangkan lebih 300 peniaga telah terpinggir & sy adalah salah seorang dari peniaga yg terpinghir tersebut..

    Semenjak PKPP (pemulihan) dilaksanakan, sy cuba utk meniaga ditapak asal demi utk memulihkan ekonomi yg telah sekian lama tidak dijana..

    Namun usaha ini telah diganggu oleh pihak DBKL..
    menghalang utk sy menjaja..
    Selasa malam Rabu yg lepas, 2 bijik van pihak DBKL bahagian penguatkuasaan telah dtg mengganggu…
    Malam tadi (Ahad mlm Isnin) DBKL bahagian perlesenan pulak datang ganggu..

    Siapa bilang Melayu tak pandai niaga..?

    Kerana kepentingan pribadi & politik pihak tertentu,
    Lesen penjaja kami telah dibatalkan..
    Bancian & Pemindahan penjaja yg asal tidak telus hinggakan yg bukan peniaga asal upTown boleh dapat petak pemindahan..
    Peniaga asal yg terpinggir cuba utk menjaja semula ditempat asal telah diganggu berkali pula oleh DBKL

    Siapa bilang Melayu tak pandai niaga..?

    TSAM sbgai menteri WP, patut berikanlah kebenaran sementara meniaga di tempat asal bagi peniaga upTown yg terpinggir sementara dicari penyelesaian..

    Kami dari Januari lagi dh susah cari rezeki..
    PKP kami bermula awal..😯

    On secondary schooling.

    Tun, I would like to share from my own personal experience being taught at a leading boarding school in England, specifically on how languages are trained on pupils. When I entered the First Form (or Form 1 here), we immediately took English, Latin and French. This was the same in the Second Form. By Third Form, German and Greek were also included. This carried on through the Fourth and Fifth Forms. We were allowed to drop a classic (a.k.a dead) and a modern language by Fourth Form.. thus in my case I dropped Greek and German. That still left me having to learn 5 years of English, Latin and French to complete school IGCSE, besides also taking English Literature (studying and acting Shakespeare’s King Henry IV Part 1 and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales et cetera).

    Besides all those, we also all had to take Maths, Additional Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History and Geography. At my school, there was no distinction between science and arts students.. just plain students.

    So, I cannot see what the fuss is about things like streamings(?) and difficult languages, like secondary schools constantly have in this country. None at all.

    Good Morning Tun M

    Tun balik kedah makan nasi kandar ka?

    I beli kat Shah Alam je. Haji Ramli by Chef Nabil. I pun tak tahu Chef Nabil ini chef celebrity, goggle baru tau. I tahu kedai ini sebab recommended by my son and hubby’s friend. My son cukup suka kedai ini dari Nasi Lemak Royale Kedah.

    I also suka kari kedai ini. More of kari Melayu, tapi kalau nak kari mamak Royale Kedah dekat Vista Alam.

    Nasi kandar sebenarnya bukanlah murah, satu orang makan akan cecah 15 ringgit sepinggan. Since I biasa dengan Haji Ramli by Chef Nabil, price taklah sampai 15 ringgit seorang tambahan I tak makan sana sejak MCO, bila kedai buka semula, I bungkus bawa blik.

    For seminggu sekali makan kat Haji Ramli, ok. Weekdays I jarang pergi area tersebut. Khabarnya time lunch line cukup panjang orang beratur. Lebih panjang dari hari Sabtu. Kalau tak silap, hari Ahad kedai Haji Ramli by Chef Nabil ini tutup.

    Berbeza dengan Royale Kedah buka hari2 like any kedai mamak. Actually kedai ini anak buah punya hubby punya cousin punya. The owner for this Royale Kedah outlet juga memiliki kedai steak sebelah Menate.

    Susah juga nak kata orang Melayu, orang Islam tak pandai niaga.

    On sinister plot(?!).

    I was just having my afternoon tea casually reading some of the postings in Tun’s blog, and I came across @Watan’s posting..

    “Berlaku penentang oleh segolongan orang politik dan “pejuang Bahasa Melayu” bersama “pejuang bahasa ibunda” berserta para seniman, sasterawan dan tak kurang juga para cendekiawan.”

    And then,

    “Dimana “pejuang Bahasa kebangsaan”, “pejuang perkara 152”, para cendekiawan? Bila nak arak keranda ke istana negara? Tidak, mereka tak kesah kerana anak-anak mereka belajar disekolah antarabangsa.”

    Now, I have heard of this story somewhere before, that there are a group of Malay MPs from wealthy families in Parliament, who oppose the PPSMI. But it is hard to believe in such a plot to bring down their own race. Unbelievable and evil if this is true. Some of these MPs are seen to be the future of UMNO new leadership(!!) I can’t say which ones, for Tun’s blog is spied upon daily by all quarters in this country. But I reckon readers can make their clever guesses.

    This is the twenty-first century, and yet there are rich young Malay politicians and not-so-young Malay academics and urban activists who are not happy to see poor rural Malays to be conversant in English, in case the latter become their competitors in future. Such evil thoughts.. unbelievable. I don’t know what to say.. lost for words(!)

    It won’t be a surprise the community will remain backward forever.

    Tun,

    @Sri Sense is correct when she highlighted the fact that there ARE a lot of good doctors, dentists, stockbrokers, and all other sectors of the economy, from the Malay community. It is the same with Bumiputera community in Sabah and (I am pretty sure) in Sarawak, too. A work colleague of mine (from previous environment) was a an excellent top political aide from Sarawak to a government minister at Putrajaya. He was as good as any that I have encountered anywhere, but it was the same as most from the Malay/Bumiputera community… they are not so fluent in English, a pity.

    A couple of things, though, from what I observe.. firstly, the numbers of these highly trained and capable professionals from the Malay/Bumi community are very small vis-a-vis the community population itself, and highly concentrated in the big cities like KL and KK. This presents a strong disadvantage from the community itself, as percentage is very important to provide longevity to a community success. For instance, most professional households of any ethnic background in any country tend to have small number of children. From success sustainability perspective, as the richer families contribute a declining percentage of the total community population, such that in ten or twenty years time, the entire community will get poorer and poorer, as the poorer section takes a greater portion of the total community. This is well-documented for any community in the world, including the Malay/Bumi community.

    Secondly, the NEP without any doubt has corrupted the minds of the community in general. The easy path and easiest path to riches is the default mantra for a newly born Malay/Bumiputera community. The expectationof a Malay/Bumi is very different from non-Malay/Bumi. The work hard ethics is not part of the requirement. This is instilled from a young age, by design or accident. This is very sad, as the otherwise highly educated and professional minority in the Malay/Bumi community is not using their ability to the fullest. I recall one Malay political aide past colleague (a masters graduate in political science and an excellent communicator) kept asking for my opinion.. whether he should quit civil service and start a small business. My immediate response was, YES(!) he should. What better way is there to make more money (if that’s your desire) and touch the sky so-to-speak than to start one’s own small business(!) He kept asking the same questions while I was his colleague on my limited duration there, that I could only conclude why he did this. Simple… he was so comfortable being looked after from cradle to death by the government, that he has lost all urgency in his life to reach for his stars. He may never will, not for the lack of technical ability and resources, BUT simply for the lack of INNER desire and urgency.

    This IS the main difference between Malay/Bumis and Chinese/Indian communities. The former is very well taken of, the latter are simply welcome to live in the country (nothing more). One can see from the results. There is only so much the former will achieve and in a very small proportion of their community, whereas the successful of the non-Malay/Bumi communities are not only greater as a proportion of their communities, but also most significantly more visible as private-sector businessmen outside the country and most importantly for the non-Malay/Bumi communities themselves, the potential numbers of such people are constantly by default almost a hundred percent from cradle to death. Of course, not all see the same results, but the potential for that is staggering. In contrast, the default potential of the global super-rich in the Malay/Bumi communities is constantly zero from birth, safe for a Herculean self-imposed exile from the imposed crutches, by one individual (yet to emerge until today). If I am not mistaken, the most successful documented rich man from the Malay/Bumi community is a state-guaranteed monopoly business (ports/utilities) operator. The second and third are government-supported contractors. The list is predictable.

    As one from a mixed-parentage Bumi community, this is simply too frightening to watch..

    p/s. commie HBT, why don’t you drop a couple of nukes on Beijing and Shanghai, the pandemic specialists.

    I BELIEVE I CAN HANDLE THE NUKES ON BEIJING AND SHANGHAI, THE PANDEMIC SPECIALISTS SO MUCH BETTER THAN YOU AS VOTER, TWINPEAKS. I WONT KECUT AND BERUNDUR EVEN 1 CM KERANA TAKUT HILANG UNDI AHLI UMNO BARU, PAS, AMANAH, PPBM DAN PKR.

    That’s why TUN is still
    the RIGHT man to rule
    MALAYsia!

    The combination of Science,
    Math and English (S.M.E)
    is the CORE that a country
    become civilized and
    progressively prosperity.

    On FB, a Pembaris and
    a Pencuri always laugh the
    fly car that developed on
    the fundamental of S.M.E.
    They also behave like the
    nobel economics prize winners
    to ‘humiliate’ the 3rd national
    car project for political reasons.
    This is a potrait of
    developing MALAYsia.
    They know nothing about
    those contexts and focus
    on cheating rakyats for
    regaining the power!

    That’s why SASTERA-PMs always
    create lots of problems for
    the country e.g. SOFT, INCOMPETENT,
    CORRUPTION and BRIBERY.

    How important S.M.E is?
    TELSA is one of the genuine examples.
    The market capitalisation:
    TELSA $93B >
    GM $50B + FORD $37B
    by 1stQ 2020.

    Hope TUN continue to lead
    MALAYsia ASAP.
    3rd national (ELECTRIC) car
    project MUST be launched.

    On English language and the NEP.

    From my own personal experience, the most ideal time to immerse a person in a language other than his own mother tongue is at childhood. This means during the formative primary school period. As in any Bumi family, I also grew up in a colloquial/regional language household; my parents spoke in native tongue and my entire family and visiting relatives communicated as such. English was never spoken as it was considered a foreign language even at primary school. One lesson of Bahasa Inggeris daily, and that was it. Closed the book and business as usual in BM. That was my personal life at Sekolah Rendah in KK, playing football whenever there was break time, even inside the classroom. But that idyllic life in Primary 6 ended the moment my father stared at me one evening after dinner and said that he was sending me to a Tokyo secondary school. And thankfully(!) for my great mother and elder sister living in England, that I wasn’t sent there. Otherwise, I will be probably be waking me every morning with the word Ohayogazaimasu to own little family today (by the way, no disrespect to you Tun. My own father was also a Japonophile, as he brought Tokyo-based OISCA into Malaysia after meeting Dr. Yoshiko Nakano the then-president). So, a 500-years old Cambridge boarding school instead was my destination. And WHAT a culture shock that was too.. I knew television English, but England was simply on a different level(!) However, it took me a solid 6 months to get up to gears with my new footballing classmates, in British English of course. Dictionary in hand, anything is possible if you are forced to do speak(!) The rest is history, as I turned Anglophile and today my family’s first language is English, but everyone also excels in school BM.

    So, the point is, the younger one begins in language, the most one can get out of it.

    Just a note on the NEP, though. I may have been scathing in my criticism on the official government policy for Malay/Bumiputera community. I must admit that, without the NEP, the 1969 situation could not possibly have been reversed. It is better to have some wealth than not to have any wealth at all. This is the good situation and achievement that we see today.

    Nonetheless, the criticisms on the NEP remain valid, too(!)

    Salam sejahtera Tun,

    Pada awalnya, pelaksanaan PPSMI agak bersemangat diperingkat murid dan guru-guru. Banyak kelas bimbingan bahasa Inggeris diadakan bagi membantu murid. Ada kelas bimbingan berbayar, ada yang diusahakan pertubuhan sukarela, dan ada yang ditaja. Ramai guru hadiri kelas-kelas bahasa Inggeris untuk meningkatkan kemahiran mereka.

    Berlaku penentang oleh segolongan orang politik dan “pejuang Bahasa Melayu” bersama “pejuang bahasa ibunda” berserta para seniman, sasterawan dan tak kurang juga para cendekiawan.

    Penentangan mereka bersandar 3 ukuran utama, prestasi murid diukur dari kedudukan TIMSS, percangahan kepada Perkara 152 Perlembagaan, dan pembelajaran sains dan matematik dalam Bahasa ibunda memudahkan guru dan murid.

    Kemuncaknya, perarakan keranda ke istana negara pada Mac 2009 bagi menyerahkan memorandum kepada Yang Dipertuan Agong.

    Antara tuntutan mereka adalah mendaulatkan Bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa kebangsaan, menyelamatkan bahasa ibunda, meningkatkan pengajaran bahasa Inggeris di sekolah, dan tentunya mansuhkan PPSMI.

    Berdaulatkah Bahasa Melayu selepas PPSMI diamansuhkan sejak 2012? Hakikatnya bahasa kebangsaan dibangsatkan sehina-hinanya.

    Penguatkuasaan pengunaan bahasa kebangsaan bagaikan tidak ujud. Bahasa Inggeris dan “bahasa-bahasa lain” digunakan sewenang-wenangnya, di papan-papan iklan, papan kenyataan di bangunan-bangunan kerajaan, laman sesawang kementerian MOF, MOH, MOA, MOE, , surat-menyurat, siaran-siaran rasmi kerajaan, ucapan dan kenyataan menteri, nama-nama agensi kerajaan RTC, UTC. Lihat nama-nama untuk taman perumahan maupun pangsapuri, Shaftsbury Avenue dimana?..Terlalu panjang untuk disenaraikan.

    Dimana “pejuang Bahasa kebangsaan”, “pejuang perkara 152”, para cendekiawan? Bila nak arak keranda ke istana negara? Tidak, mereka tak kesah kerana anak-anak mereka belajar disekolah antarabangsa.

    Lihat pula buku teks matematik dan sains di sekolah, Istilah-istilah yang diMelayukan berselerak di setiap mukasurat.

    Matematik dan Sains adalah asas penting untuk kejuruteraan dan teknologi. Terlalu sukar menangani kejuruteraan dan teknologi dengan bahasa selain bahasa Inggeris. Memperkasa bahasa Inggeris sahaja tanpa melibatkan pembelajaran matematik dan sains seterusnya kejuruteraan dan teknologi tidak membantu apa-apa.

    Kebolehpasaran tenaga kerja bergantung kepada keupayaan berhubung di dunia tanpa sempadan dan bahasa utamanya adalah bahasa Inggeris.

    Anggapan PPSMI akan membuka jurang antara pelajar bandar dan luarbandar tidak benar malah sebaliknya. Menidakkan peluang mempelajari matematik dan sains dalam bahasa Inggeris menyebabkan pelajar luarbandar tidak dapat bersaing dipasaran pekerjaan kerana pelajar bandar masih boleh berbahasa Ingeris dengan baik hasil dari pendedahan persekitaran bandar. Nak jadi crew kedai makanan segera pun bahasa Inggeris diutamakan.

    Masuk universiti, kejuruteraan dan teknologi diajar dalam bahasa Inggeris. Ada pensyarah dan pelajar luar negara, sumber rujukan juga dari luar negara. Nak bertanding peringkat antarabangsa pun dalam bahasa Inggeris.

    Kepada yang berjaya terlepas masuk alam pekerjaan, apabila dihantar berseminar atau bersimposium, akan duduk sekumpul di bucu dewan sesama mereka, datang sekadar memenuhi arahan, tak faham apa yang dibincangkan jauh sekali nak bina jaringan. Mampukah mereka membina kerjaya?

    Apabila perlu membuat kajian kejuruteraan dan teknologi, sumber terkini dan termaju yang boleh dicapai di alam maya semuanya dalam bahasa Inggeris. Bolehkah kita dapat hasil kajian yang baik?

    Apabila berurusan dalam rantaian bekalan dan pemasaran peringkat antarabangsa semuanya dalam bahasa Inggeris.

    Tidak hilang kedaulatan bahasa kebangsaan jika penguatkuasaan penggunaannya diperketatkan. Tidak akan hilang bahasa Melayu jika kita tahu bila dan dimana nak guna bahasa apa. Manusia mampu menguasai lebih dari satu bahasa dengan sedikit usaha.

    Mempertahankan bahasa ibunda? Pertahankanlah dirumah masing-masing. Apabila keluar bermasyarakat patuhilah perlembagaan negara, jangan melampau.

    Amat bersetuju dengan Tun. Perkasakan bahasa kebangsaan dan ajarkanlah matematik dan sains dalam bahasa Inggeris. Hentikanlah retorik perjuangan bahasa kebangsaan, bahasa ibunda, dan Perkara 152.

    Salam YAB Negarawan Ulung Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Tun wajar teruskan perjuangan murni Tun untuk membanteras korupsi dan salah guna kuasa dalam Kerajaan. Abaikan saja saranan dan pendapat dangkal yang mahu Tun berhenti berpolitik.

    Kesian saya melihat orang yang tidak tahu apa yang BETUL dan apa yang SALAH. PM yang korup dan menyalah guna kuasa memang patut disanggah dan diturunkan.

    Bercakap tentang PPSMI, saya amat bersetuju supaya ia diwujudkan kembali.

    Saya bersetuju supaya Sains dan Matematik diajar dalam BI kerana ia lebih efektif. Saya bercakap sebagai seorang yang ada kelulusan (3 Ijazah) dalam bidang Sains.

    Soal bahasa, semuanya bergantung kepada diri sendiri. “Hendak seribu daya, tidak hendak seribu dalih.” Kalau malas, memanglah ia jadi BEBAN kepada si Pelajar- sekadar alasan dangkal.

    Semasa saya belajar di luar negara, ada juga pelajar-pelajar yang BI mereka agak lemah tetapi mereka dapat markah tinggi dalam kursus2 Sains dan Matematik. Mereka amat rajin! Ya, pokok-pangkalnya mereka RAJIN. Tetapi, lama-kelamaan mereka pandai juga dalam BI.

    Izinkan saya bercakap tentang adab menuntut ilmu bagi pelajar (untuk mendapat keberkatan).

    Bila kita menuntut ilmu kita mesti BERADAB. Adab dalam menuntut ilmu amat ditekankan dalam Islam.

    Jika tidak beradab (biadab / kurang ajar) ilmu sukar untuk lekat di otak (minda) kita.

    Walaupun seseorang dapat mempelajari ilmu tersebut tetapi biadab terhadap guru, masih tiada atau kurang keberkatan ilmu yang dipelajari buat individu tersebut.

    Bila ilmu TIDAK BERKAT, mulalah timbul pelbagai masalah; mungkin sukar untuk mendapat kerja ataupun jika dapat kerja, ada masalah lain yang timbul. Ataupun, kalau duit banyak sebab gaji tinggi (tetapi ilmu tidak berkat), wang tidak lekat di poket @ tiada simpanan (contoh saja). Semuanya lebur begitu saja – asyik sengkek saja. Bila usia sudah senja, simpanan untuk hari tua pun tiada (contoh saja).

    Saya menganggap Tun sebagai ‘GURU’ di dalam KELAS ‘Chedet’. Jadi saya cuba sebaik mungkin untuk menghormati guru saya. Banyak sebenarnya yang kita (rakyat) boleh pelajari dari Tun, tetapi malangnya ada yang langsung tidak tahu menghargai kelebihan Tun. Asyik mengata dan mengutuk Tun saja…memfitnah pun ada yang sanggup lakukan…tiada keberkatan…

    P/S: Pandai BI tidak menjamin seseorang berjaya dalam kerjaya. Banyak juga yang gagal. Ia cuma satu ‘bonus’.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

  19. Bilis Jun 20,2020 10:04 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya bersetuju 100% dengan Tun.

    Semasa saya belajar di universiti (tahun 91-97) dalam jurusan Kimia dulu, saya dapati untuk cemerlang dalam subjek berkaitan sains dan matematik, saya perlu membuat latihan dari buku-buku berbahas Inggeris. Alhamdulillah, dengan memaksa diri untuk membaca dan membuat latihan berbahasa Inggeris, saya lulus dengan cemerlang.

    Bila masuk alam pekerjaan, saya bekerja dalam bahagian pengurusan disebuah syarikat multinasional. Kebolehan berbahasa Inggeris yang saya latih semasa belajar sains dan matematik di universiti dulu, membolehkan saya menjalankan tanggungjawab saya dengan baik.

    Jadi saya memang bersetuju dengan Tun dalam hal ini. Bahasa Inggeris bukan sahaja perlu untuk celik sains dan matematik, malah juga untuk memajukan diri dalam bidang yang lain.
    Tidak sedikit pun jatidiri Melayu atau keislaman saya tergugat.
    Namun saya juga menyokong pengukuhan Bahasa Melayu dalam hal-hal yang lain terutamanya dalam hal sosial serta pentadbiran negara.

    Dalam pada itu, saya juga menyokong idea sekolah wawasan yang Tun pernah ilhamkan untuk perpaduan negara.

    TY Twinpeaks!

    Tun

    Actually kat my house kami cakap orang putih juga. Cucu2 pun. My blog I tak cakap Melayu sebab audience I bukan semua orang Melayu. Kalau Melayu pun mereka very educated.

    I ingat lama dulu kat RHB ada seorang nama Melayu Islam cukup pandai Technical Analysis. Kira dia predict boleh 90% ngam ngam. Membaca chart bukanlah kerja mudah. Hubby I pandailah sebab dulu dia involve dalam product online trading under BERNAMA.

    I ada kenalan Cina Sarawak dia bukan main cuba to be perfect dalam bacaan chart tapi dapat 75% correct pun kira cukup bagus. Nak 100%, sukar la nak buat.

    Kalau long term investors selalu mereka guna TA untuk masuk beli, simpan ikut FA. But ada juga theme play, depending on the mood of the big investors. But I am happy bila IDSS tiada lagi. Because stocks susah nak naik, bila ada short sellers asyik bet stocks jatuh. Buat masa ini tiada IDSS if I’m not mistaken until end of the month.

    Sekitar Shah Alam I lihat ramai orang Melayu cakap orang putih, malah dengan anak kecil mereka. Balik kampung, orang tua I dah tiada, tak pasti samada orang Perak cakap orang putih kah? Mungkin dibandar Ipoh mudah cari yang bercakap dalam bahasa Inggeris, tapi di kampung2 I rasa orang Perak lebih gemar cakap Melayu slang Perak, walau ada dikalangan mereka pergi sekolah orang putih. Lebih mesra gitu.

    Tun,

    It is amusing that through the years of your journey through the Malaysian political adventurism landscape that you have been called all types of names by your detractors. One day, they write tomes on your bad deeds. Another day the same licked your boots. And on the third day, they become your detractors again pouring the finest vitriol on your head from behind your back. You may agree with me that this is the occupational hazard common to Malaysian politicians !

    Who has the Principles ? You or them ? As hardened political adventurers, the detractors seemed to have their mind-sets encased in concrete of the finest quality ! They could not see that the Malaysian form of Democracy is the most democratic in the World ! In other words, anything goes or can happen ! Or any one who is approved by the Constitution may become the Prime Minister. As a Constitutionalist since 1954, I am all for this. Please note even a Royal Ruler may be a Prime Minister but not vice-versa ! May be one day, this idea becomes a reality in the rough and tumble of Malaysian Politics !

    However that aside, there is no mystery in the study of English, like Bahasa Melayu, Mandarin, Tamil or other languages of the World. The acquisition of any language may be achieved in 3 months given the desire or the motivation. It is the labelling of a language by politicisation which damage its image. But to pick on any language by any one, it is the unkindest cut of all. In our beloved Malaysia today, what better achievement than for all to know Bahasa Melayu and another language like English, French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Tamil etc. From my own experience, it is easy to learn any language.

    I began to study Classical Cantonese, followed by English. Then Hindi, Urdu and Anglo-Indian English. Subsequently, English, Latin and Classical Cantonese. Finally, Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin. All these hodgepodge of languages made me a better person in understanding and dealing with others to this day through a common medium !

    I am still a chinaman ! Once upon a time, I was a yellow banana too. Vide. Chou En-lai. 1956.

    If I remember correctly, it was alleged that the Minister of Education in 1969 changed the Federal Policy and disappeared into the Sarawakan woods and could not be found by the Tunku ! Did this fellow by his own and personal act without Cabinet approval ruined the socio-economic prospects of an emerging Nation ? A World which is highly competitive in garnering Wealth through Trade which requires an essential and common form of communication easily understood by all ! As far as I know, all countries put a great emphasis on the study of English. It is common today for a person outside of Malaysia to know at least 2 languages.

    My view is that there should be a choice for all to study Bahasa Melayu being compulsory, English, German, French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Tamil etc. The choice begins in the Primary schools. Lessons in Science and Mathematics naturally follow.

    Considering the gigantic squandering of Public funds by those responsible in recent years, the opportunity given to all to study English, French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Tamil etc is comparatively but a small price to pay for the immense returns from this tiny investment in human capital in the future. It is easy to learn any language when a person is young ! Vide UN, IMF and World Bank Annual Reports. RM 1.3 Trillion were transferred overseas from 2002 to 2018. The Private Sector does not have so much money ! When a political side-kick died, he had RM 2 Billion in his bank.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The Government has the duty to create a level playing field in Education so that any person may achieve Wealth through his or her own efforts and not through stealing etc. in later life because of the lack of opportunities given when they were young.

  22. twinpeaks Jun 20,2020 1:12 PM

    Tun,

    @Sri Sense is correct when she highlighted the fact that there ARE a lot of good doctors, dentists, stockbrokers, and all other sectors of the economy, from the Malay community. It is the same with Bumiputera community in Sabah and (I am pretty sure) in Sarawak, too. A work colleague of mine (from previous environment) was a an excellent top political aide from Sarawak to a government minister at Putrajaya. He was as good as any that I have encountered anywhere, but it was the same as most from the Malay/Bumiputera community… they are not so fluent in English, a pity.

    A couple of things, though, from what I observe.. firstly, the numbers of these highly trained and capable professionals from the Malay/Bumi community are very small vis-a-vis the community population itself, and highly concentrated in the big cities like KL and KK. This presents a strong disadvantage from the community itself, as percentage is very important to provide longevity to a community success. For instance, most professional households of any ethnic background in any country tend to have small number of children. From success sustainability perspective, as the richer families contribute a declining percentage of the total community population, such that in ten or twenty years time, the entire community will get poorer and poorer, as the poorer section takes a greater portion of the total community. This is well-documented for any community in the world, including the Malay/Bumi community.

    Secondly, the NEP without any doubt has corrupted the minds of the community in general. The easy path and easiest path to riches is the default mantra for a newly born Malay/Bumiputera community. The expectationof a Malay/Bumi is very different from non-Malay/Bumi. The work hard ethics is not part of the requirement. This is instilled from a young age, by design or accident. This is very sad, as the otherwise highly educated and professional minority in the Malay/Bumi community is not using their ability to the fullest. I recall one Malay political aide past colleague (a masters graduate in political science and an excellent communicator) kept asking for my opinion.. whether he should quit civil service and start a small business. My immediate response was, YES(!) he should. What better way is there to make more money (if that’s your desire) and touch the sky so-to-speak than to start one’s own small business(!) He kept asking the same questions while I was his colleague on my limited duration there, that I could only conclude why he did this. Simple… he was so comfortable being looked after from cradle to death by the government, that he has lost all urgency in his life to reach for his stars. He may never will, not for the lack of technical ability and resources, BUT simply for the lack of INNER desire and urgency.

    This IS the main difference between Malay/Bumis and Chinese/Indian communities. The former is very well taken of, the latter are simply welcome to live in the country (nothing more). One can see from the results. There is only so much the former will achieve and in a very small proportion of their community, whereas the successful of the non-Malay/Bumi communities are not only greater as a proportion of their communities, but also most significantly more visible as private-sector businessmen outside the country and most importantly for the non-Malay/Bumi communities themselves, the potential numbers of such people are constantly by default almost a hundred percent from cradle to death. Of course, not all see the same results, but the potential for that is staggering. In contrast, the default potential of the global super-rich in the Malay/Bumi communities is constantly zero from birth, safe for a Herculean self-imposed exile from the imposed crutches, by one individual (yet to emerge until today). If I am not mistaken, the most successful documented rich man from the Malay/Bumi community is a state-guaranteed monopoly business (ports/utilities) operator. The second and third are government-supported contractors. The list is predictable.

    As one from a mixed-parentage Bumi community, this is simply too frightening to watch..

    I berpendapat jika pemimpin UMNO tersebut ada court kes dan didapati tidak bersalah, atau didenda sedikit dan masuk jel sekejab, kita harus terima dengan baik.

    Orang UMNO pula janganlah terlalu idola sangat. Jika pemimpin untuk sudah terbabit dibawa kemuka pengadilan, terima segala keputusan dengan baik ya. Bukan mereka tidak idola lagi cumanya sebagai manusia biasa kita tidak perfect.

    Ingat ya, nak jadi kerajaan biar image bersih, cekap dan amanah. Insyaallah negara Malaysia akan maju jaya dan dihormati.

    CICAK MAN PART 2?

  26. Sri Sense Jun 20,2020 9:57 AM

    Salam Tun Mahathir

    Yup I setuju. Dalam Bahasa Inggeris ya, Menteri Pendidikan.

    I teringat zaman my son kecil, dia tak suka subject maths, katanya memang orang Melayu lemah dalam subject ini. I marah dia, I kata, kan you pun sama macam mereka, ada mata, ada telinga, ada otak, kalau mereka boleh kenapa you tidak boleh.

    Walau anak2 I semua bukan super pandai dalam maths tapi mereka tahu untung rugi. Doing the right thing untuk hidup. I pernah beritahu Tun, anak2 perempuan I semua niaga online, termasuk anak sedara, sedara mara yang lain. Kalau tak pandai mengira lagu mana nak niaga, kan. Small business tapi pada duduk diam2 tak buat duit, kan baik buat duit. Masa itu emas. Usahlah dibuang begitu saja. Lagipun dalam hidup ini semua pun duit2.

    Tak pasti pasal saintis ya. Tapi bab doktor2 kesihatan ini ramai orang2 Melayu. Tak percaya boleh pergi klinik kerajaan dan lihat. Even dentist I pun orang Melayu, pakar dental implant lagi, orang putih Australia pun datang belajar dengannya.

    Kalau Tun kurang arif tentang ini, mungkin sebab Tun sering dikelilingi oleh orang bukan Melayu. I felt the same way ketika I tinggal di Subang Jaya. Bangsa lain superior than my own bangsa.

    Tun tau tak ramai orang Melayu yang pandai baca stocks technical chart. Their prediction lebih accurate. Bukan senang nak baca, kena pandai kira2 juga. Zaman sekarang stock market bukan sama macam zaman dulu. Sekarang retail investors adalah orang professional bukan lagi nyonya pasar or apek kebun sayur. Therefore meletak Tengku Zafrul sebagai Menteri Kewangan adalah tindakan TSMY yang bijak.

    Ok bab politik, syukur alhamdulillah. Sebenarnya Tun, telah diketahui umum mereka hanya gunakan Tun untuk naik jadi kerajaaan. Tun pula gunakkan mereka untuk kuburkan Najib. Mereka sebenarnya lebih bagus jadi opposition dari jadi jadi kerajaan. Fahaman sosialis ini tidak sesuai dengan Malaysia.

    As for anak Tun, sebenarnya kalau rasa uncomfortable jadi politician its ok jadi businessman saja. After all Tun lama dulu jadi PM, contacts untuk business sure banyak. Cuma Tun janganlah terlalu laser sampai anak Tun hilang business macam kat UK aritu over hidung Jews.

    Yang penting buat Tun adalah relaks, usia dah 90han, relaks. Write a book, have fun with your wife and cucu. Politik usahlah dicampur2 lagi. As for UMNO walau pemimipin tertentu pernah berjasa besar, dah kena court kes, ada baiknya tolak mereka, usahlah ikut stail PKR. Ramai orang Melayu lain, beri mereka peluang. Nak jadi kerajaan biarlah bersih, ya.

    OK chow, jangan gaduh2 lagi!

    1. What AI and PKR did when they rejected you as PM9 candidate is akin to a losing team in a football league that insisted they be declared the Champion!

    2. Since they could not do so, they created their own league, and declared themselves the Champion.

    3. Meantime, you assemble a solid team by selecting good players from other teams to defeat those teams that are consisted of corrupt and dirty players.

    4. In no time, your team will be celebrated and loved by the spectatorrs.

    5. Your team will play soccer, fair and square, with entertaining the spectators with good soccer, as its ultimate aims. Overtime, your stadium will be filled with joyous spectators again with excellent ticket receipts to boot.

    6. As for the losing teams, let them play catch-up. For those dirty and corrupt players, let the authorities suspend/penalise them, for life.

    7. As for AI/PKR team, let them continue to ‘syiok sendiri,’ as the Ultimate Champion in their own little soccer league.

    8. Being a winning coach is sometimes better than being good players, as many have failed to even be a player!

    Terima kaseh, Tun. Wassalam.

    P.s. As for Math and Science, I agree with you fully that those subjects have to be taught in English. Learning English will not make Malays become Christians. Similarly, learning Jawi wiil not make non-Muslims become Muslims.

    Assalammualaikum Tun

    Biarpun saya merupakan antara pelajar yang agak terkesan dengan sistem pengajaran matematik dan sains dalam bahasa Inggeris dahulu namun saya setuju jika diperkenalkan semula.

    Tetapi kali ini ia perlulah dilakukan dalam keadaan lebih kemas. Kajian mendalam perlu dilakukan. Ini kerana pelajar yang lemah penguasaan bahasa inggerisnya akan merasa terbeban.

    Contohnya mereka mungkin tidak dapat menjawab soalan sains bukan disebabkan tidak tahu jawapan tetapi tidak tahu menjawab didalam bahasa inggeris dengan baik.

    Disekolah dulu ada kelas peralihan untuk pelajar yang lemah penguasaan bahasa melayunya, mungkin kelas peralihan untuk bahasa inggeris pula diperkenalkan. Atau apa sahaja idea yang matlamatnya menjadikan para pelajar menguasai bahasa inggeris dengan baik.

    Macam nilah Tun, daripada mendesak semua PM letak jawatan adalah lebih murni mendesak untuk perkara-perkara yang baik untuk masa hadapan. 🙂

    On English language for technology.

    Moore’s Law states that (on average) computing speed doubles every two years and the old computer price halves every two years. That means technicians need to keep up with latest computer technology on a daily basis. Just imagine the amount of knowledge that needs to be translated into BM every day from English.. who is willing to that(?!). It is much easier just to read off the internet if you understand English. How many Malaysian university engineering graduates understand English in detail today? How many of the annual intakes into computer engineering courses at local universities can speak fluent English?

    It all boils down to the primary school curriculum. By the time they enter secondary school, they should already be speaking fluent English on a daily basis. It would greatly help if Malay household speak English with their kids daily too. Schools can only teach grammar and writing, but spoken English is a daily habit. Either you speak or you don’t(!).

    If Malays can speak fluent English, that alone will make them very competitive against all others in this country. Then they won’t need government help anymore. They are independent(!).

  34. SSLEE Jun 19,2020 12:24 PM

    Dear Tun Dr Mahathir,
    Please allow me to repost a comment by Sharudin Jamal
    http://chedet.cc/?p=2905#comment-143086

    [Chedet is a hardy Old Coot. However he is a man with a big heart. Otherwise he cannot have so many children and adopted a couple on the side.

    He likes people who are smart AND hardworking. The irony is he spent much of his energy trying to change the Malays. He tried the instant noodle approach and *no[t] he is seeing the colossal effect. Malays are lazy. I can say this because I am part Malay. So what I’m saying is I am part guilty of that too. Compares to the Chinese, the Malays are mares next to the thoroughbreds

    *By now you realize that any misspelling is a cipher by external party.
    Being lazy is fine, but they are a bunch of opportunists. The Malays LOOOVE easy money; MLM, get rich quick schemes, passive investments, taking bribes, Mr 10% and what have you.

    Chedet on the other had closed one eye on all these because he wanted to see quick result. To him it is OK to have a few who are rich (with whatever means) because the wealth will trickle down to the masses eventually. Unfortunately these greedy Malays hogs the wealth to themselves. It only trickle within their circles; family, kin and cronies. Even scholarships and loans are for the taking of the greedy Malay elitists.

    So in a way it is Chedet who created the monsters that we have now. During his 22 years reign, the Malays were pampered by handouts and subsidies. Those in the ruling normally have one hand on the policies and another hand on the projects. If you watch Malay drama, it is always about a rich Datuk or his kin involving in multi-million mega project.

    Poor Chedet. He is good at giving the fish but not at showing how to fish.

    What I like to see is Chedet acting as the pacesetter for a Malaysian Malaysia. I like the concept of Bangsa Malaysia as in Malay Malaysian, Chinese Malaysian and Indian Malaysian. I however don’t want to see the Malays favored over the other races. It should be egalitarian in nature because we are in a racial cauldron of multiple ethnicity. Our children are now hybrids.]

    To Chedet blog readers my opinions what had gone wrong with Malaysians:
    By championing
    -backdoor government, democracy and people mandate were murdered, unbridled ‘cash is king’ and ‘abuse of power’ are inevitable;
    – backdoor policy, meritocracy and prosperity were killed, while white collar crooks and high-level traitors were created;
    – backdoor institutions, quality education and universal moral values became a fantasy, sinful corruption and cultural erosion became unstoppable;
    -race and religion supremacy, justice and universal human rights were trampled, while bigotry, intolerant, extremism and injustice are the order of the day;
    -greed and power, fairness and rule of law were destroyed, while insatiable lust and sexual desire rule the day.

    I myself do not wish Tun Mahathir to come back as our 9th PM, if possible Tun should be appointed as Minister Mentor and head the Education Reform as Tun still has the unfulfilled promises made to Tun’s alma mater Sultan Abdul Hamid College’s (SAHC)
    https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2018/12/21/for-education-overhaul-pm-moots-cutting-back-on-religion-studies/1705356

    [To address the problem of schools being overly-focused on religion, Dr Mahathir said the timetable and curriculum in schools would be changed.

    “Because of that, we are going to change the timetable and curriculum in the schools, we will still study religion, but not all periods in one day, maybe one or two periods in a week,” he said.

    “But we need to master all the other subjects, because if we want to progress, Malaysians must be well-educated, not only in reciting Quran, but also in other languages. If we don’t, we are going to be very backward,” he said.

    “So the school curriculum will be changed and modified, so that now we will have national schools that will teach everybody all the important subjects that will be useful for them when they mature and become independent individuals,” he said.

    Dr Mahathir said Malaysia is currently going through a difficult phase and needs development, adding that the country needs well-educated people and those who are able to interact with others and speak up for the nation.

    “We have to work very hard in order to catch up with other people.

    “And although we have to say our prayers, but we also need to spend a good time on mastering all the other subjects that are taught in the school,” he said.

    In his speech, Dr Mahathir also said that Malaysians were formerly known to have good command of the English language.

    Dr Mahathir encouraged Malaysians to master English which he described as a “universal language” and crucial for acquiring new knowledge to help the country progress, saying that learning the language would not diminish their Malay or Malaysian identity.

    The Kedah-born Dr Mahathir was speaking at the dinner organised by the Sultan Abdul Hamid Old Collegians Association (Sahoca) KL, of which he is also lifetime president.

    This year also marks the 110th anniversary of the SAHC, where his father Mohamad Iskandar was its first principal when the school was then known as the Government English School.]

    Thank you

    Yours truly,
    SS LEE
    PS: Leaders come and go; it is the system that will determine what kind of leaders we will get in future. We each get what we deserve and I desire for institutional reform to secure our future.
