Malaysia in foreign news
This morning I was pleasently surprised to hear Malaisie being mentioned in Europe1, France's largest radio channel. It is about our country's plan to send out an astronaut next year: As the autorities planned to send a malay muslim (as usual ;) ), the problem comes out as to the direction of the kiblat (pointing towards the Kaabah in Meccah) when that guy is performing his solat (prayers). With the spaceship orbiting at speeds of a few thousand kilometers per hour, the polemic is not an easy one.
The second news is written by me that is published by the BBC World news...haha, not me la, my namesake. Its about Malaysia's vision 2020.
