Sultan Nazrin Launches 'Legends, Lessons And Love:
A Small Town And An English School
It's Sultan Nazrin launching a book by Prof Jamilah.
I think the Sultan likes the book very much as it seems that he had actually read the whole book and wrote his own speech which is actually a book review for the function.
He said the book written by prominent academician, Puan Sri Prof Dr Jamilah Ariffin which provided insights of not only the lives of individuals but also the education system during the nation's crucial transitional period, would be a good read for today's educationists.
"We can learn much about community and multi-culturalism from this richly detailed account of how these operated in those days.
"While we may not be able to return to that more innocent small-town past that this book so powerfully brings to live, there may again be valuable elements that we could learn from in our current efforts to build a harmonious multi-cultural society," he said when launching the book at Sime Darby Convention Centre, here today.

Elaborating Sultan Nazrin said the book provided rich details on various aspects of traditional British education model, with its kind but firm discipline by the teachers and successive principals, who fulfilled their roles in moulding the new generation with such dedication.
The school sought to build confidence and ambition among all its students, as part of an approach that emphasised service, duty, honesty and integrity," he said.
Sultan Nazrin said the book constantly reminded readers on the different ways in which multi-culturalism was experienced before the manipulation of racial or religious difference for political purposes that had become a feature of our politics since.
"As depicted in the many photos in the book, there were easy mingling of classmates from different races and religious background who met as equals on the school grounds.
"Friendships were then deepened through the many opportunities for inter-action and integration that were provided by the school and broader community," he said.
I need to get myself a copy of this book as Sultan Nazrin makes it as if it's such a good read.
Well, I believe in the good Sultan. He's one of the good guys. A better one, to be exact.
Anyway, maybe I can use Prof Jamilah's book as a guide for my own memoir.....which I'm still struggling to complete.
Writing a book is not easy like writing a blog like this.
It needs a lot of discipline...which I'm lacking.
Prof Jamilah, however, makes it as if it's no big deal as she keeps coming up with one book after another.
I posted these about her previous book,
A lady of substance
Of a book launch and review of a Saturday
By the way, I heard Prof Jamilah's husband is also writing his own book and from what I was told it's a biography.
I hope it will be published soon.
I also hope it's one of those no holds barred kinda books.
Would love to see Datuk Ghani kick some ass in his book.
That would be quite fun, don't you think?
Okay, need to get up and go to work now.
Dedication for the good Doctor & the judicious Sultan:ReplyDelete

It is nice to see Puan Sri Prof Dr Jamilah Ariffin getting recognition for sharing her life experiences in the field of education.
But, in my eyes, there is an even better and more worthy candidate who deserves greater eecognition.
Her name is Cheryl Ann Fernando.
This is a small writeup about what she has done.
As far as I know, until today, Cheryl Ann Fernando, has not had one bit of recognition by any official authority.
I have read other things about Cheryl elsewhere and to me, she is an absolute giant in the field of education in Malaysia.
I believe that if she could get more support from official authorities, the Malaysian education system will be so much better :(
Perhaps I am not doing Cheryl Ann Fernando any favours by mentioning her name on your blog, and she does not know me from the proverbial bar of soap, BUT I truly and sincerely think she deserves all the help she can get.
Somehow, despite a mention on your blog, despite my ardent admiration for her, I doubt if Cheryl Ann Fernando will be hearing from any official body offering to help her.
The hottest thing right now is the botak politician who lashed out at a respectable businessman. And for no valid reason. Not going to touch on race here as that is sensitive. But why some people forget who they are, and spare no thought for another fellow human being? And their behaviour only bring disgrace to themselves and their party, ancestors, descendants....ReplyDelete
Buat renungan bersama...Delete
1. Peringatan untuk JhoLow
Kini, awak boleh dan sedang melarikan diri TAPI awak TIDAK boleh sembunyi buat selamanya. Sampai masanya, awak TETAP akan berdepan dengan hukuman.
2. Peringatan untuk MO1.
Kini, awak boleh memutarbelit kerana masih berkuasa.
Kini, awak boleh menutup semua kesalahan awak kerana masih berkuasa.
Akan tetapi, sehari nanti awak PASTI akan gagal dan menerima hukumannya. Masa itu sudah PASTI awak AKAN kehilangan segala-galanya.
3. Peringatan kepada pemimpin pemimpin dan orang orang tertentu yang bersubahat bersama MO1.
Kini, awak semua sekarang boleh membantu MO1 mengaburkan mata dan mengkhianati rakyat kerana masih berkuasa.
Kini, awak semua boleh mengambil kesempatan kerana masih berkuasa.
TAPI awak semua TIDAK akan berjaya menipu rakyat selamanya.
Mengikut lunas kuasa karmik (balasan) bila sampai masanya, awak semua akan kehilangan segalanya baik di dunia dan akhirat. Sama sama rakyat jelata akan tunggu dan lihat apa penghujungnya nanti.
Atak kuasa punya olang apa mau ingat semua itu maa aa, guna itu kuasa ,semua kasi padam habit lor rr.
Bila itu lakyat mau guna lia olang punya kuasa ,itu jam mesti mau ingat lor rr.
Macai umno bangsat bangsat boleh sila defend Jho LowDelete
Selagi boleh defend
Defend for the sake of defend
Glad-he-ate-her...CAF has had not one bit of official recognition. Hello..if you are a teacher worth your salt you wld not seek official recognition. The best recognition will come from your students for they are the ones who matter most. No amount of recognition can compare to a sincere word of thanks from a student.ReplyDelete
Lai panjang,As an educator myself I do agree with you that the best recognition come from your ex students.However,it does not hurt to get recognition from others.Delete
Ghani kicking ass hah hah hah Annie..ReplyDelete
Tunggu DOJ buka kes jenayah ke atas Jho Low....harap2 sblm PRU ni. Buka semua rahsia2 transaksi link kpd MO1 terus! Biar mahkamah dunia yg menghukum penjenayah No 1Delete

I guess you are somewhat right there.

Saya difahamkan pelbagai contoh model bisnes di dunia seperti, socialism, communism, venture capitalism dan sebagai. Yang model bisnes kat malaysia 🇲🇾 ini agak luar biasa sikit. Contoh, bina satu syarikat, modal 1juta, pinjam 42bil, ditanggung oleh Kementerian, tiba2 duit entah kemana, perkenalkan GST utk bayar hutang! Bila habis bayar hutang kata syarikat akan gulung tikar? Model bisnes apa ni ya?Delete

Selagi Najib belum sampai tahap jadi PM selama 22 tahun, jangan anugerah kan dia sebagai PENCABAR setraf TDM. Memimpin hanya satu PRU, pencapaiannya amat amat MENGECEWAKAN. Sudahlah tidak dapat majoriti dua pertiga malah lebih teruk dari keputusan PRU 2008!!! Nasib baik kerana dia memimpin UMNO/BN wadah politik yang telah menjadi darah daging Melayu. Kalau tidak samalah nasib UMNO seperti Parti Kongress di India! Tunggu PRU 2018. Apa nasib UMNO/BN sekiranya Najib Perahuan Bugis masih menjadi Nakhoda!!!Delete
The APMM, Polis Marin, and Jabatan Laut boys also like to read books, like you. The book they read is called the .
Every ship or vessel governed by maritime or shipping law would have an Official Deck Log Book. It contains information like destinations that the vessel had travelled to, passengers that had come on board, goods / cargoes that had been brought onto etc..
It is an offence not to keep one on board.
For example EQUANIMITY would have a Log Book. Inside the Log Book you may find names of the RICH AND FAMOUS, LEADER OF SOME SOUTH EAST ASIAN COUNTRY or their spouse and children, that had ever come on board. May be, the number of condoms used on board, too, could be found.
The Indonesian Enforcers would be busy reading the Log Book which they said was very thick and voluminous. It must be a good read.
Now, the secrets of Altantuya are with the Singaporean, may be KJ, too.
The secrets of MH370 might be with the Australians.
The secrets of Petrosaudi and Xavier Justo are with the Siamese.
The secrets of MH17 might be with Putin.
The secrets of Eric Tan Kim Loong and SRC International are with the Singaporeans.
Now, the destinations and persons on board Equanimity past and present are the secrets known to JOKOWI.
Many may have died with some secrets, Altantuya, Kevin Morais, Hussain Najadi. There is an Official Secrets Act, too. Above all, there are many who would keep some secrets in exchange for remuneration. Behind every attempt to suppress the TRUTH to deny JUSTICE, there is evil. But, as it unfolds, somewhere in between you can find God, and justice that He had promised.

-When a minister tasked to combat fake news in the country turns out to become the CONSUMMATE PURVEYOR of fake news!...
I see that the biggest news in Malaysia has excaped your blog. Jho low's Equanimity has been seized by FBI. Why is the government silent on jho low. Is it because there is no case or the case is swept under the carpet. This is why someone like me will vote for the oposition. I want to know the truth which i cannot get from the najib administration.ReplyDelete
Why JLow did not take legal action? He got the means. DOJ waiting for him to come out of the shithole n declare that he is INNOCENT. Tell everything so that MO1 can sleep in peaceDelete
Salah satu komen syok sendiri dari pengampu Najib yang buta hati. Kalau PRU13 ramai yang dah undi PR, takkan tetiba PRU14, ramai pengundi baru akan undi Najib? Siapa yang nak undi Najib? Ahli Umno yang dah benci Najib? Pengundi baru saluran 6 semua takkan undi Najib. Sapa lagi nak undi? Pengundi hantu? Cakap macam orang takde otak. Tah hapa hapa. Ini la akibatnya kalau tak pernah turun padang.Delete

You want to know the what from who?
Look, it's like this, OK?
As far as I know, the official position where 1MDB is concerned is that no crime has been committed in Malaysia and no money is missing from 1MDB.
In fact, 1MDB is awash with profits - billions.
RPK has also told us that 1MDB assets of RM50+billion exceed liabilities of RM40+billion.
What RPK DOES NOT tell us is whether those assets are at fair value.
For example, is that pencil sharpener on Arun Kanda's desk valued in the books of accounts at RM5 or RM5billion?
It is one of the oldest tricks used to make companies seem more valuable then they really are.
So what if Equanimity has been seized in Bali?
It will be claimed that it has nothing to do with 1MDB.
Newspapers around the world which have pointed to the link between Equanimity and the looting of 1MDB will be accused of publishing fake news.
And the pakciks and makciks in the kampung will nod their heads wisely, and go back to packing their bags in preparation for their haj - courtesy of the huge profits from 1MDB.
Little do they know that the TOTAL amount of money spent on such trips for their haj since the program began in 2011 cannot even buy ONE pink diamond necklace!
Look for yourself - total cost of program so far, RM57million.
One pink diamond necklace, US$27million.
A country which does not deserve my loyaltyDelete
Asas dalam politik demokrasi ialah mendapatkan sokongan sebanyak mungkin. Melainkan Umno mahu tukar status kepada mafia, mencantas bukanlah pendekatan yang diperlukan. Yang nampak memang Umno dah jadi mafia yang ada godfather tanggung. Jadi tidak heranlah Umno akan laksana pendekatan cantas besar2an. Annie bukan ahli Umno tapi layak untuk jadi ahli. Helen Ang hanya layak jadi ahli MCA atau Gerakan. Umno tak perlu dengar mana2 pandangan pun. Tunggu dan lihat bolehkah Najib bertahan hingga PRU-14?ReplyDelete
Real problems which the people can see and feel:ReplyDelete
1. Jalan pasir gudang upgrade delayed (again and again)
2. High cost of houses.
3. Street light not functioning always.
4. Terrible road condition.
5. Public transport
7. Wide spread cronyism, which projects awarded are either over-budget or poorly implemented.
8. High crime rate
9. Poor infrastructure to go with the out of control development.
10. Rise of basic living cost
There'll sure be some people telling me that other state had the same problem even it's a opposition state. I'll leave it to the people of that state to judge.
I'm a Johorean from Kluang, I do care about the poor state of my state. The 10 points I stated above is just the tip of the iceberg, which is a fact that everybody staying in JB can see for them self.
to be frank with you after 5 times voting for BNReplyDelete
this is it..enough is enough..I am with tun m regardless what others people said about him..if nothing is change in Johor especially if they still choose mat 2jobs as candidates..BN will not get my votes..confirm..I was born in Pontian!!Shame on you mat 2jobs!!
Sorry to be off-topic but it seems that while PDRM rank and file may be so poorly paid that they have to turn to accepting bribes, some of our top cops are seriously wealthy.
So wealthy, in fact, that one of them, the head of our CID, can afford to forgo RM1million in a bank account which was seized by Australian authorities in Australia!!
It was too expensive to recover that money from the Australian authorities.
What a load of bullshit!!
If that money was totally legitimate, it would be a relatively trivial matter to recover it - and at a very very reasonable cost.
Amazingly, this fellow's explanation for all that money in his Australian bank account has been accepted by his superiors!!
