Watch the following video, supposedly UiTM’s chief student body.

I’m not going to be an ass and correct his grammar, mine isn’t THAT polished to begin with. But rather question his choice of words, seemed too limited for someone of his caliber.
If I were Khalid, I’d tell him, “Hang balik, belajaQ Englis dulu.. esok mai balik na?”
Mim for Malay? Too shallow. It could mean Malaysia, but the closes would be Mara, since UiTM belongs to them.
Back to the main agenda, is English just a language? No. It clearly reflects on how one reads and interact with others. In his case, lack of both, depth of knowledge and good PR skills. It’s crying shame to have him lead the student body what more to reflect whom he leads.
In some cases, I fail to understand, why do people write gibberish Bahasa Melayu on their blog? You claim to be a Malay, but you write like trash. Haven’t you heard of the saying,”Bahasa Jiwa Bangsa“? So respect your language, it’s your origin.
I’ve been asked before, why use English when “NoktahHitam” is Malay? Simple, to improve my English. It’s in my best interest to minimize grammatical errors. Yes, I am uptight, but I don’t wear my pants above my belly.
ps: I’ve always been proud of my Javanese origin.
pss: No spelling error on this post. If it’s misspelled, it’s intentional.
As you can see behind me is the big black a metal which is symbol character of the Arabic language, Mim. If in the English vocabulary we can say it is an M. In which in English we can stands for Malays and which I can say that this university is 100% for bumiputeras and which most of them consist of the malay and this universities are not for the non Malays.
What happened last year I did the street demonstration prostressting against the Minister of Selangor itself, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim for his suggestion to open up UiTM to 10% for the non malays. In which it was a incorrect suggestion to be made at the incorrect time. The Malay should have the special right because basically the Malay the son of the soil of this country. And basically we are given this type of right because we have given up the citizenship to the non Malays, the Chinese and the Indians. And for that in exchange we the privileged of such as education, scholars, loan from the bank and some land for the Malay reserve.
