A college dropout.........

We now live in the world of black and white and certificate-based world. And we forget the true meaning of education which is to seek for wisdom and knowledge. Everyone seemed to seek for higher education. When you have bachelor, you aim for your master and even phD. But does that mean that we that we will be success in the future?


Well, this guys is a college dropout. Not even earn his earned his bachelor before he was top richest guy in the world.......

But guess what? Does that means that this guys don't know how to study? I seriously doubt that because he scored almost nearly perfect for SAT and get into the world top university Harvard University. But he left Harvard for his higher aim which is "Microsoft".

But indeed what is depressing in Malaysian education is we only study how to memorize things since primary school which actually buried our creative minds.. even in university education system is not good enough, we don't learn to "think" but instead of it we just study blindlessly and is definitely a "dead" education system. How can we produce people who invent facebook, google, yahoo and others great stuff?......

Co-founder of google, Larry and Sergey met and founded google while they pursuing their phD in Stanford University, one of the top university in U.S.


Bunch of good friends from Malaysia and Singapore trying to post in front of the grassland of Stanford......

Although I'm not so excel enough to get into Stanford but I am grateful enough at least I have the opportunity to visit Stanford and meet with the professor and the students there. But too bad not able to see Jerry Yang (yahoo co-founder) and Chris Hughes (facebook co-founder) who are also graduate from Stanford. I never knew that Stanford actually have 16 nobel prize winner until I google it.

Back to the topic, education is suppose to shapen and enhance our mind and creativeness and potential to its fullness and not to buried it. I believe that education helps and guide us find our own way and path........


So, where will you go?
