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.

This is the 'literature' the Form Ones are studying now:

Eh, show you something:

Original eye.

Contact lens-ed eye.

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

Gonna live on Korean lenses from now on.
