Mr & Mrs Koon have their points and views on letters written by the applicants.

Instead of sharing their letters in public/blog (although their personal detail is masked, they may be demoralised by public comments/views), suggest to reply them individually with your wise advice. Although they may not get your scholarship, they are blessed by your moral support and encouragement as they believed you are a person of Wisdom.

God Blessed you and family with wisdom and good health.

White men are the only race in this world who are proud of their own language:English! Because they don't feel that their own language is inadequate that they need to learn the language of others. We seldom see any white men speak the language of other races with their family in the public(of this I feel ashamed if compare with them)unlike certain yellow skin Asians who speak English with their children in the public and even name western names for their children as kind of glory. They like to fawn the west,they hope immigrate to the west on the ground that the moon they see in the west is rounder than the moon of their own country. They wish to mix with the west, although the white deny to accept them because of different skin color. Korean and Japanese are another. We seldom see any Japanese or Korean name English names for their children or speak English with their children in the public as an extraordinary. These people firmly keep they dignity, never kowtow to others deserved respectful. Japanese professors or doctors who do not know English are not a big deal, for non ones ridicule at them, while in other Asian countries, even the late Confucius is ridiculed by street sweepers for not knowing English.

With all due respect Mr Koon, some of them are just victim of circumstance beyond their willful control, some of those studying abroad badly hit due to our RM, and also it is hard certainly to pin why their English not good as it could due to many factors, yet this doesn't prove they are not good

Looking at most of the comments, most of them do not understand the message that Mr Koon is trying to emphasize. One is just to show the bad standard of English even though the students score As. We need to work on this rather than trying to ignore this key point. Another point is the word " poor and needy " must be understood very clearly. There are many more poor and needy compared to those few cases mentioned . Do you know how many are studying locally on government loans and working part time to survive ?>

Certain yellow skin Asians regard English as word of ghost. Other than their own people, the tribes never before saw any other different races, and once their saw a white man, with deeper eye socket and extremely hooked nose, they were terrified, they regarded him as a ghost, and call him Gui Lau(a guy of ghost), and his speech was described as words of ghost. Not only that, asides of them self, they described all other races as ghost, thus a series of ghosts emerged: white ghost or black ghost etc...
In Asian, you speak English accepts honorable. Thus, either beggar or villain, as long as they come from the west, well speaking English, are deserved respectful when they come to Asian countries.
Most of the Asian countries had their own language as national language, and English is not a compulsory for university entry. However, due to the less round of the Asian moon, certain private universities and institutes stick to the 'requirement.' Thus under such circumstance, you have no other choice unless try to learn speak and write ghost's word, or you never can expect to look for a better job. What you can blame is you were birthed to a wrong country, where the color of its people are not as white as milk.

KYY ( and I) certainly do not have your kinds of convoluted thinking.

Being practical is the only criteria for me. ...that is why both my children have English tuition from pre kindergarten to Standard 6 and both went to Chinese schools because the rise of China is already clear enough by the late 1990s.

Putrajaya has suspended the Public Service Department (JPA) Scholarships for degree courses and the Education Ministry's bursary for pre-university programmes amid falling national revenue.

According to Sin Chew Daily, this was confirmed by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Wee Ka Siong who raised the issue at the cabinet meeting today following several complaints from high-achieving students.

Wee said he had asked the Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to rethink and reinstate the scholarship.

"The prime minister understands that the economy is not good at the moment and the people are facing heavy burden so he has instructed the chief secretary to the government and JPA to come up with a new solution.


"I can't say for certain if there will be a change of decision but we (MCA) have tried our best to appeal the matter because we don't know how the economic situation will develop," Wee was quoted as saying by the Chinese language daily.

The suspension applies to both overseas and local scholarships and affects some 700 placements this year.

Urgent resolution

Wee urged for an urgent resolution to the matter as some university commence their intake as early as Feb 1.

He added that Najib had asked the chief secretary and JPA to submit a report to the cabinet next week with their proposal.

The Sin Chew report also pointed out that some students have questioned why the JPA scholarships were suspended, but not Mara scholarships.

However, Wee declined to respond to this claims, citing that he had not heard them personally.

Asked if the suspension of the JPA scholarships was linked to the planned budget revision on Jan 28, Wee said he did not know.

A check with JPA's website found the "bursary e-filing system" link which is used by students to apply for the scholarships, have also been removed.

Putrajaya is struggling with shrinking revenue as the Brent crude oil price has fallen to a 12-year low, settling at US$27.78 per barrel.

This is in contrast to a high of US$114.81 per barrel in 2014.

Najib has announced that the 2016 budget will be revised to adust for falling revenue and will see government expenditures optimised.

This old man is one leg in the coffin already but yet want to humiliate those young people.

Never look down on young poor people, you will never know where they can go with all the time & potential they have.

While half dead old man like Koon is not much time left, max is 10 years if he can live until 93, making fun at young people is maybe one of their fun thing to do in life.

Mr Koon, may I suggest you should just sponsor those who are really poor and could write reasonably good English.

don't put to much emphasis on language ability,students may not aimed to be "language word-smiths", they could be future scientists and engineers, excel in logics and mathematics,and have creative minds
