A UPSR Student Composition

I don't know whether the below I received in an email is true. If it is, Heavens help Malaysia!

Having read it, and in view of Malaysia losing the Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore, one has to seriously ponder matters. The International Court of Justice awarded the island to our neighbour solely on the fact that for the past 100 years Malaysia did nothing to justify otherwise. Of the 100 years, 52 of it were after Independence and under the helm of the Sarkas people; goes to show who they really are, does it not? That, would include the below too. God help us!

I would like to believe the composition was all faked but then it could be the truth.

If you look at the night life in KL especially at Bangsar and the Golden triangle areas you will not be surprised at what happening in our society.

It’s a pity some of the people we entrusted to run the country not only sell their soul for $ but sell the country and race for power and money.

Salam Dato',

Like you, I too would like to believe the letter is a fake.

I have long not visited KL at night, but I believe as you mentioned. Guess when some of the people who are sitting in one of those open air drinking hole maybe talking about. Bet some of them are complaining about the moral degradation of the society, the price of goods, and other subjects similar.

Hello Shah,

Is that composition for real?

I think society on the whole has changed. Be it in the name of progress or just plain greed, things will never be the same as how we once knew. Days of simplicity are over. Although questions of morality may have existed back then, I believe it was always a 'hush-hush' subject and not a norm (as is widely seen in the western countries) today.

Salam Shah:

This composition is shocking.More so if its truly written by a primary school kid.

His BM is terible and teachers better take note.
The lifestyles of his parents is a reality that is happening in Malaysia but I was suprised when BOB mentioned his mum mentioning that she had affairs with 3 men.The fact that mom never tried to hide it from her children about this is schocking. can't she be discreet?

Dad most probably have many girlfriends or mistresses too and doesn't mind being a dayus at all.

I do not know how the teacher reacted apart from correcting the composition.Bob needs more than just correcting his composition.

We are becoming a dog eat dog world in Malaysia.Most probably the sarkas like it that way,no?

Hi JT,

I don't know if the composition is real or not, but would like to believe it is not. If it is real, then I fear for the future generations.

While not wanting to sound as a prude, I think today's society - the world over - is being too permissive at the abnormalities of morality; we bend too much to accommodate them. Self-centered politicians especially, clamour and covet them for their support. I believe, we need to return to the basics.

Wa'alaikumusalam Doc,

Sometimes - most of it, actually - I don't think teachers are to be blamed for the inadequacy of the school children, as parents are now over protective of their children. Perhaps even that is not true, as they maybe over protective of their name, rather than the well being and education for their children.

And true, I believe the Sarkas people would like this situation to be true; the more of them, the merrier for the Sarkas people. Weren't they responsible in bringing 'entertainers' and 'entertainment' along with them during previous elections?

dear bro shah

I think the family portrayed by the writer of the letter is pretty interesting and knowledgeable, considering a kid like that knows who marilyn monroe was. About those bollywood stars, i know many people love to watch those movies. miss monroe is something else i think.
I do agree with dato'. indeed our society is in turmoil now. Do you think this breakthrough idea of Islam Hadhari would be able to fix that? :)

salam ya akhi,

i'm also very much curious of the writing... hopefully it's just a fake.. yet, we might never know...

whether it's authentic or not, it shows the reality that been happening around us...

cakapaje said...

Salam shirzad,

Bro, that's one way of looking at it! Though I don't know whether its optimism. But that Hadhari thingy you mentioned, what is it? ;)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Muha,

I sincerely hope the composition is a fake. But as you mentioned, it does portray the reality of the times today, sadly.

My my my, just from which school did Bob go to? I am not going to criticise on the 'well-being' of Bob, but Aje, having read the attached, I felt drained for him. If this is truly happening, like it or not, someone has to act by reporting it to the Ministry of Education.
BTW and FYI, I'm a little exhausted cuz I just landed from somewhere and haven't the time to update my 'no identity' blog. Will get there the soonest after office matters is settled.

Wa'alaikumusalam snowflake,

You too, another jet-setter! Wowee! Couldn't you have brought me along? Hehe...just trying my luck :)
