"Hujan emas di negeri orang, hujan batu di negeri sendiri, lebih baik di negeri sendiri" Malay proverb

What that proverb basically says is that - Home country is still the best, even if it is raining gold in other countries, and raining stones at home...

I have been asked many times, by different people, of my plans after my studies in Melbourne. You see, I think it is really raining stones back home - with the current political backdrop, democracy, and even police problems (watched/heard of MTV Ashton Kutcher Punk'd ?? - here's one which is proudly Made in Malaysia, with real policemen).


What is Malaysia becoming?

I would like to correct your mistake; "Hujan emas di negeri orang, lebih baik hujan batu di negeri sendiri"
