Pak Lah (our Deputy Prime Minister) mentioned the following in his
keynote address to members of the Oxford and Cambridge Society
of Malaysia sometime last month:

“The way I see it, the malaise affecting Malaysia that
may well jeopardise our way forward is a case of having First World
infrastructure and Third World mentality. From poor execution and
inept management to shoddy maintenance and appalling customer
service, Malaysia is in danger of possessing the hardware, but little
software.”

Something very poignant indeed which I’m sure will fall on deaf ears
anyways (Malaysians generally don’t like to hear negative things about
themselves). Enough with the technology transfer for now, I reckon.
What we *really* need at this moment is an Attitude Transfer.
