School's begun.
For 'bout a week now.
And I haven't been sent to the discipline master's office.

Aaaaaanyways, I discovered something interesting...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you:
The Dumbing Down Of English Literature In Malaysia.

What secondary students studied in...

The 1970s:

The 1980s:

The 1990s:

The 2000s:

The Prisoner Of Zenda (Young Reader's Edition) by Anthony Hope Hawkins.


Black Beauty (Graphic Novel) by Anna Sewell.

A Graphic Novel.
Can you believe it?
This is the 'literature' the Form Ones are studying now:

Oh, yeah, our country has SUCH a bright future ahead of us.


Eh, show you something:

Original eye.

Contact lens-ed eye.

I'm gonna go become a vegetarian vampire now.

I didn't get that colour on purpose, okay?
(The vampires' eyes are brighter gold, anyway)
It's supposed to be BROWN colour.
Malaysian-made product.
Damn uncomfortable one lor!
Expensive some more...

Gonna live on Korean lenses from now on.


Links are to original literature works and authors, not abridged versions we study in school.
