Another economic crisis? 'Endless possibilities'

The ringgit is at a three-year low against the US dollar, having shed over 7 per cent in value versus the greenback since the start of the year.

While developed nations are heading up, developing countries have gone in the opposite direction; MSCI’s Emerging Market Index showed a loss of 13 per cent in equity since the start of the year.

Worryingly for observers, this is the biggest the gap between developed and emerging markets has been since the 1997 Asian financial crisis.

Meanwhile, remember the 1Malaysia and One Israel debate?

Well it looks like Malaysia has been accused of plagiarising another Israeli motto - Endless Possibilities.

Three years ago, certain politicians said the link between 1Malaysia and One Israel propounded by the opposition was just a lie.

Today, the Prime Minister's Office said the government came out with “Endless Possibilities” as its new global theme months before Israel released a similar tagline.

As Jebat Must Die said:  "please google the phrase first before giving it to the PM for him to announce; this might avoid any embarrassment."

Oh, apparently Mongolia too has a similar tagline - Endless Possibilities.

HD says: Oh boy....

New parents unhappy with Tung Shin Hospital's policy

Several new and would-be parents are crying foul over Tung Shin Hospital's policy that sees a paediatrician on call, instead of a chosen paediatrician, attending to a newborn upon delivery.
It is a talking point among parents who claim the policy by the Kuala Lumpur-based private hospital would mean paying for the services of a doctor which is not of their choice. Parents alleged the paediatrician of choice is only available after the baby is discharged.
Some of these parents have welcomed their newborn while others are anxiously waiting for the arrival of their bundle of joy. They all insist they should have the right of choice as they are paying for the services.

Upon clarification, new mothers and/or new parents were informed they will be able to see their paediatrician of choice for their babies' following check-up.
New and soon-to-be parents related their experience:
