Ooo dear, and all along I thought there are so many people around who love History so much. Someone definitely need to do something about this... Ha ha talking about History, there was a time back in my A-Levels days when I argued heatedly with my Deputy Headmistress how a historian makes a better Prime Minister than a medical doctor! With a benefit of hindsight, I think she was right!


She was right? Which side of the argument did she take? It would really be interesting to know her arguments... ;)

Yes I think something needs to be done about it. In fact people like you and me could do something about this in our own way. This blog was supposed to lead to something that will help propagate appreciation of Malaysian culture and history. I'm still thinking how best to approach it... (plus, since I'm hardly an authority on the subject, I think I'd better give it some careful thought)

But watch out for history-related entries in the future!


Interesting subject. Humans tend to repeat the same mistakes over and over again which explained our inherent nature to ignore anything history-related. We, Malaysians, "mudah lupa" kind of breed.

Which is why I think your blog should get more exposure. Why not post a ping to http://www.petalingstreet.org/ ?


Oh, she was on the Historian side, her being an Historian....

I don't think she was particularly pleased with Mahathir, she sounded very much an old Labour, the Barbara-Castle-Labour... so you can guess her opinion of Mahathir...


More exposure? Who? What? My blog? You can't be serious. As things stand there is not much here to expose ;)Anyway, thanks for the tip! I will go to petalingstreet.org when I think this blog is ready.

I agree with you about Malaysians' collective amnesia. Hence it is important that those who still remember speak, write, sing, act and take action to remind the others of all things forgotten and hidden, so that our children and our children's children will not wake up one morning finding themselves to be a people without roots and ancient memories.
