98% literacy and 0.3% poverty – Really kah, BN?

There are lots of such banners by the roadside.

98% literacy? Does the ability to write empat nombor ekor counted as literate already?


**** Community service announcement :

Some folks mistaken my blog to be the Warkah untuk PM. šŸ˜›

A few have emailed and I have directed them to the correct place. šŸ™‚

However, there is one appeal which I hope you KL guys can help to lookout or if you know any friends who lives in that area, tell them about it:

to alert the
citizens of Kuala Lumpur to look out for my daughter’s
original certificates [SPM, Cambridge 1119, STPM, MUET
and UPM Bachelor Of Science in Microbiology (Honours)]
which were snatched away from her by a pillion-rider on 21 February 2008 at
around 6.30 p.m. while she was walking to her rented flat around Jln SS 25/15
Petaling Jaya.

Sekian. Terima kasih. šŸ˜‰

  1. I think according to their standard, knowing how to write empat ekor can be considered got leteracy liao. If not how to achieve 98%!

  2. First time commenting here — just wanna say that according to the most recent census (forgot what year it was), literacy is measured by the ability to tell time and dial phone numbers accurately. My grandmother can’t read nor write, yet she was counted as literate by the census takers — since she can tell time and dial a phone number accurately.

  3. 98% is not anyway close to UNESCO’s statistics. You think UNESCO luan luan kong or our politicians?

    In Malaysia, statistics is what the politicians said, that’s why statistical department can run by people who don’t know what is standard deviation. šŸ™‚
