Family outing at Pantai Kempadang

It was just a quick trip to a nearby beach. It was already 9AM & the sun is already high. But the kids still can’t resist the temptation to play sand-castle….

IIUM is not a public university!

It’s unfair! Yup….IIUM is a registered company but it was created as a company so that we can use English & Arab as the medium of instruction. Those days, only privates can use English as official language. (And now they are teaching science & math to young kids in English! And make a hoo-haa about it in newspaper trying to defend their move).

We got 100% budget from government. We have to follow Government Order (GO). We don’t make profit. More importantly our salary & promotion follows government scheme. But because we are a company…..we are treated as one. One of the major issue now…..all our allowance (that constitute almost 40% of the salary) are taxable!

Come on lah government!! Sedar lah sikit! If we are a government institute, rectify this private-publis status once & for all. Or…just give us the salary of the private medical university lecturers! *BIG GRIN* (something like quardruple than the current rate).

Cruising Sungai Kuantan

Went river cruise with family yesterday. The kids love the trip eventhough it was their 2nd time.

The jetty at mangrove area has been reconstructed however the walkway is now old & there were few broken woods.

Got few bird shots. Birds like White Bellied Sea Eagle, stork & kingfisher but the pictures are horrible. 300mm is not long enough…
