The Jack In Us...Do You?

Monday, March 23, 2009 - - 0 Comments

This is a quite wonderful story for our thoughts that i found in the Lectio, about a person named Jack, fell down a cliff and how he solve the problem. Now, here's the story:

A man named Jack was walking along a steep cliff one day, when he accidentaly got too close to the edge and fell. On the way down he grabbed a branch, which temporarily stopped his fall. He looked down and to his horror saw that cliff fell straight down for more than a thousand feet. He could not hang onto the branch forever, and there was no way for him to climb up the steep wall of the cliff. So, Jack began yelling for help, hoping that someone passing by would hear him and lower a rope or something.

"HELP! HELP! Is anyone up there?"

He yelled for a long time but no one heard him. He was about to give up when he heard a voice.

"Jack, Jack, can you hear me?"

"Yes, yes! I can hear you. I'm down here."

"I can see you, Jack. Are you alright down there?"

"Yes, but who are you? And where are you?"

"I am the LORD Jack. I'm everywhere."

"The LORD? You mean, GOD?"

"That's Me."

"God, please help me! I promise if You'll get me down from here, I'll stop sinning. I'll be a really good person. I'll serve You for the rest of my life."

"Easy on the promises, Jack. Let's get you off from there, then we can talk. Now, here's what I want you to do. Listen carefully."

"I'll do anything, Lord. Just tell me what to do."

"OK. Let go OFF the branch."


"I said, let go OFF the branch. Just trust Me. Let go."

There was along silence. Finally Jack yelled.


Have you ever felt like in Jack's situation? Just saying something is a simple thing to do, we'll say that we want to know the will of God. But when we get to know what it is, we could'nt handle it. We're doomed, full of fear, and don't know what to do. We ought to look elsewhere. When He says, "Let go off the things that stand between you and Me, and trust Me in your life", it sounds pretty scary. But when we let go, we find FREEDOM and SAFETY in His hands...

PPSMI...Relevant OR Irrelevant Anymore?

Wednesday, March 11, 2009 - - 0 Comments

Get bored with Perak's political chaos? Don't worry, Malaysians have another issue to rise up : PPSMI. Recently it has been a very hot issue about the PPSMI module ( Pembelajaran & Pengajaran Sains & Matematik dlm Inggeris ) where it is being questioned, either it is relevant or irrelevant anymore. PPSMI have been a threat to all Malaysian especially the Malays because it may affect the soverignity of the Malay language. Besides that, the Government's decision since the reign of the then Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad to imply the PPSMI module in Mathematics and Science subjects in local schools is seen to be not successful. Consequently, it arises rage among citizens and recently a fierce demonstration erupted in protest of PPSMI.

Persidangan Meja Bulat PPSMI recently gather to decide the resolutions on this matter. As a result, they have come to a conclusion of 7 choices for the Government to decide as a move for the future of PPSMI.

Actually, the future of PPSMI is very narrow right now. Implementation of PPSMI since 2003 in PMP( Pengajaran & Pembelajaran ) shows bias between rural schools and town schools. According to the President of Students' Council, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Mr. Azrul bin Ibrahim, there is a question about students who came for PPSMI classes ; are they coming to these classes to study Mathematics and Science in English, or just come to these classes just to study English. These actions will reduce the quality of Malaysian education. He also suggests that :

(1) Mathematics & Science will be taught in Malay in primary schools and 2 alternative choices of languages (Malay or English) in secondary schools, meanwhile PPSMI is compulsory in higher education, &

(2) PPSMI only implemented in urban schools, not in rural schools.

Eliminating PPSMI may benefit the education quality, but English should not be put aside from the main focus of National Education Philosophy as the need of English nowdays is very important in order to face the globalisation challenges. Whatever the suggestions are, it is the Education Ministry's and Government's decisions is important for the benefit of the nation and the future of country's education quality.
