This is someone whom I can call as a close online friend. We have never met although our offices were just walking distance away, but we have known and communicated with each other online for at least 3 years. We have similar roots and similar professional challenges, and based on what he was in Malaysia, I can say we lost another highly professional brain.
Read his letter to an old friend, on the reasons why he left Malaysia.... perhaps forever.
Malaysiaboleh.blogspot.com: again why did you leave?
As a father to two kids, these thoughts frequently run through my heart especially when I pay for my kid's education insurance which takes up a huge huge chunk off my small take home salary...
I love my country but if national policies will kill my kids future, then I won't hesitate to sacrifice heavily for them, as did my grandfather and father. But seriously, i hope that day never comes. I love my nasi lemak too much! duh?
