Headline January 26, 2017/ ''' MALAYSIA IN *MAJESTY*'''


IN THE NEXT TEN DAYS  - ALL PROBLEMS  relating to the  *visa status* of International Students studying in Malaysia would be solved, and the period of approval shortened.

The World Students Society, most lovingly and respectfully called, !WOW!, thanks most humbly :  
His Excellency Najib Razak the Prime Minister of Malaysia and His Excellency, the Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi

Malaysia, is one very, very beautiful country, and its people kind, gracious, hospitable, and very much at peace with themselves and the world at large. .
To further honour the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister  and the Students, Professors and teachers of Malaysia, I reiterate this distinction that : 

!WOW!   -the World Students Society   belongs to every single student of Malaysia:  'One Share-Peace-Piece' .
*Just as it belongs to every single student in the world* 

Malaysia is among five countries most accurate in identifying realities, says  Ipsos survey.

*The 2016  Index of Ignorance*   produced by the consultancy group, includes information from  27, 250 interviews of people aged  16 to 64 carried out between September and November.

The survey took in population from 40 countries, with between 500 and 1,000 people surveyed in each.
Despite Malaysia doing fairly well in discerning perception from reality on key universal issues, the-

''Perils of Perception''  survey found Malaysians to be among the worst in telling apart reality from perception in several issues like home ownership and healthcare expenditure.
*On health spending, the Malaysians thought they spend nine times as much as they actually did on their health.

''We think that we spend  37%  of our total  GDP on health expenditure when in fact we only spend 4%. If our guess was right, this would be the equivalent of an extra  RM 350 billion spending on health,'' Ipsos said in a statement accompanying the survey,

Surprisingly, Malaysia's neighbors  in squeaky clean Singapore and Thailand were among the least accurate, taking the 7th and 8th positions in the :  ''Index of Ignorance''.

Indonesia and the Philippines scored slightly better in the survey at number 10th and 16th respectively. 

On how many Malaysians owning homes, IPSOS found that most of the respondents felt that only 44%  of Malaysians own homes, when actually more than half of the country's  30 plus million  population are homeowners.

''Most countries tend to massively underestimate how many households are owners or are buying their own home.

We think just  49%  of people own or are buying their home, when in fact 68% are owner-occupiers across these countries,'' the report said.  

Malaysians were also found to be among the top 10  most pessimistic countries. 

''We think our fellow Malaysians are much more miserable than surveys of happiness show. We guess that only 44% of Malaysians would say they are very or rather happy, when actually 96% say they are, in a recent representative survey,'' the report said.

Malaysians wee also found to be the most ignorant about its population number. While in most cases people were within  5%  of the actual figure, less than  1%  of Malaysians knew that the country's actual population is 30 to 33 million.

India receives the dubious honor of being   the most inaccurate  in their perceptions on these issues with China and the US also rather high on the list. 

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!   -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:

And with very loving and respectful dedication to Engineer/ Entrepreneur, and multi millionaire  Imran Basit, Pakistan's Pride of Performance recipient for a regal send off and reception:
