I was born on the prairies, where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures. [GERONIMO]

Our students did it again
The top Malaysian student from each of the three universities in the State of South Australia (SA) is a woman.
At a gala dinner here on Saturday night, the trio received awards from the Australia Malaysia Business Council, South Australia (AMBC, SA) chapter.
The 'Women power' comprised Fan Yee Mun, from the University of Adelaide, Elysia Chin Low Pei (Flinders University), and Lim Shu Yi (University of South Australia).
Fan, of Petaling Jaya, was adjudged overall best student. She received the Patron's Award, laptop computer and A$1,500 (RM4,654) from former SA governor, Sir Eric Neal.
AMBC SApresident Sathish Dasan said, in the 13-year history of the awards, it was the first time all three prizes went to woman.
Come to think of it. After all the money that have been spent sending mediocre students to study overseas, I am sure many Malaysians would be interested to know how many of these students came back with flying colours and how many dropped by the way side.
