I’m pleased with the fact that I’ll finally get tell my physic teacher back in high school that physic law that she contstantly try to drill to my thick skull “Everything that goes up, must come down” definitely can’t be applied to Malaysian current state of economy. Obviously, there are some certain things that goes up, stays up, and will never comes down. Well at least they stay up and have no sign of coming down at least anytime soon. Ah, the wonder of physics law. They never cease to amuse me.
