If You Don't do it, You Don't Really Believe it. Some people spend their whole time searching for what's right, but they can't seem to find any time to practice it. Your life story is not written with a pen, but with your actions. To do nothing is the way to be nothing.

education..

once my old hse mate was into this girl den...

julian: why dont u go after her?
zl:you see, u just studying in MMU, the other guy also MMU but Manchester Metropolitan Uni, how to compete?

that really leave me speechless.i got nothing to say to that. do overseas degree is THAT good?
where do we draw the line?how do we compare which student is better?for example if u study law in overseas and u study law here in Malaysia, how do we compare which is the better lawyer? is it the money they earn? where do WE draw the line? we cant exactly compare how much people make as a symbol of success. i mean, if a janitor there earn about 1000punds, that is about rm 7000. and its not easy to earn that much here in Malaysia. but den again, that does not mean the janitor in overseas is better than some coperate figure in Malaysia that earn the same ammout of money right?

in the real meterialistic world, where money really speaks. which i find its really sad where REAL talent have been limited by their financial status.some might just b farmer's child, but what the best he/she can do?mayb the minority can make it big, but what about the rest?and on the other hand, those who don really pay attention in class, and skip school and just got credit for their spm, can further their study abroad, y? like i say money speaks. and supposedly, the education abroad is WAY better than local, thus the lazy slacker at secondary school now in overseas and maybe have a better future, but the farmer's children who work day and night working and studying their butt off, don really have a bright future as the slacker. is this fair? i really HATE when the situation is not fair and those who work their butt off don get their reward.

but who am i to cry out foul play.am just a university student with no power what so ever, who struggle himself to get the grade in a local uni. as i saw my cousin's stpm papers, its something like what i've learn. but why stpm is one of the hardest exam in the world?and do studying abroad is really that tough as good as some claimed? is it jsut the reputation that university aborad have since they have been there for long? or its just overated? i dono. because i am not lucky enough to get my chance to go abraod.guess all i can do now is to look forwarwd day by day and not dwell anymore of what could and should have been.and probably just follow where the flow brings me as am not so sure anymore what will i b next time. if those who study abroad is THAT good, well.. its good to hear and know,my wish is for them to serve the country and give back to the community and help our country to develop and NOT come back with a HUGE ego because of an overseas education.

What I can say is that the diff between being overseas educated and studying locally is having the 'overseas' experience itself... meeting people of diff cultures and backgrounds and opening both ur eyes and mind to diff things...
It might sounds far-fetched and very, very 'SPM essay'-like but it's true...
Meeting people and sharing ideas does change a person...
I wouldn't say the lecturers overseas are way more experience or learned... we can't be certain of that... but you can't deny that firms do regard uni's abroad better... and this may be due to their own experience in hiring people with foreign qualifications... so it's either the education there is really, really good or there must be something in the water of foreign unis...
Yet, there are SOBs and B**tches who really don't deserve the overseas experience...
Life isn't fair... I think we all know and are very much aware of that...
Yet, I believe in the saying "once an ass always an ass..."
They might be 'fortunate' enough to be given the chance to fly...
But they will most probably come back the same jackass they were before they left...
And really... overseas education DOES not make you a better human being... it just opens ur mind and braodens ur horizons...
It takes more that that to be HUMAN...
