For some very strange reason, I can log on to blogger though my office has blocked blogpost for a couple of weeks. So I am now in a bizarre situation where I can blog from my blogger home page but unable to view my blogspot page... bizarre isn’t it?
There are a lot of hoo-haas going around about some decision where some subjects in some school at some level will now be taught in BM instead of English. I am not going to blog about it, at least not in a serious manner. It’s Friday and I don’t want to stress my brain.
But speaking about the command of English, did you watch the repeat of MJ’s memorial service on Wednesday night, shown on 8TV?
For the uninformed, 8TV was having this thing where one can sms your farewell note to MJ to 8TV and it will broadcasted on 8TV during the memorial. And ya’ know, all the sms-es were written in English… errr… I mean… Engrish, or Mangrish (or whatever you want to call it).
And there they were… farewell notes to MJ… displayed on national television… written by people whose country is still thinking on whether English should be a compulsory “pass” in SPM… atrocious would be an understatement.
But the gem of them all has to be… “Mecheal Jakson, I am u biggest fan. I will miss u”
I seriously wonder if MJ does understand most notes posted there.
And ya’ know what? During Madonna’s memorial service (no offence, just an example), Malaysians will be sending messages like…
“Maradona, I am u biggest fan. I will miss u”
