Teaching with a purpose

Education has kicked into high gear in most parts of the world, yet in Malaysia, we’re still aimlessly cruising the neighbourhood.

Walking the talk

It’s easy to extol the virtues of paving the way for younger voters, but we had better put our money where our mouth is when eight million of them hit the polling stations.

Waiting in the wings

Being the next in line is largely a part of life, but in the political sphere, it could be uncomfortable to some.

Fix for a better mix

THE Tanjung Piai by-election will serve as a good platform for our politicians to stop, or at least, refrain, from using the race and religion cards simply because the Parliamentary constituency has almost equal representation of Malay and Chinese voters.

Home is where the heart is

Owning a house is the standard ambition of any individual, however, getting there is increasingly becoming not only a local, but global struggle.
