This boy posts on a Friendster blog, so I could check out his profile, and, apparently, he is in Australia. Ahuh. Okay. I’m just going to do what Nizam did and put up what the boy said.
BETTER THAN UK & AUSTRALIA
I normally dont care about the column HAVE UR SAY in Brudirect but i was kind of free and look into some of the articles/posts there and i come across this post:
TAHNIAH N SYABAS TO ALL ITB STAFFS
Tahniah dan syabas kepada pihak ITB kerana memelih penuntut-penuntut baru yang berkelayakkan masuk pada bulan Julai ani.
Begitu jua kepada pihak MOE yang memberi kebenaran kepada penuntut-penuntut baru ITB untuk mengikuti kursus-kursus yang telah ditawaran.
ITB adalah institut Negara Brunei Darussalam yang mengeluarkan penuntut-penuntut yang berpendidikan tinggi dan berkualiti. BETTER THAN UK or AUSTRALIA.

You all knw… i was like? hmm ITB? i mean i knw its good but like better than UK or Australia? hmmm… so so so… i dont knw wat to say!! i mean are those parents like stupids? i mean if their kids have the opportunity to go abroad obviously they would swallow their words… for me, it came from parents that are bitter cuz their kids didnt get to go UK…
i mean for me, whereever u study is okay but this “grateful parents” just so overrated man!! feel like “slapping” them!!
That is so stupid of them to say that on that column!! Anyway, thats about it… i mean i just wanna share this with you all out there!!!
Thanks… Good day ppl!!

This really makes my blood boil. Sure, Grateful Parents might have exaggerated a bit to say that ITB is better than institutions in UK or Australia, but there is no need for this boy to “feel like slapping them”, or say they’re stupid.
Personal note to the boy who posted this up: we don’t want you to share with us such opinions like these, thanks. We’re better off without it. Apakan? Kana reject oleh ITB kah? Now that you’re studying in Australia, and previously UK, you are bitter about it? (Post here tells it all, really.)
Oops. Sorry, I went overboard there. Not going out to everyone who’s studying anywhere, I’m just really angry. This is what Aaron and I were talking about earlier on when we were on duty for The Lounge: in Brunei, locals rarely support locals, unless they’re closely related to you.
What is wrong for supporting ITB, or UBD, or the new university, Universiti Sultan Sharif Ali? Like I said, Grateful Parents did a little exaggeration, but was your reaction really necessary? And this is coming from a student who is studying in Aussie? Are you kidding me?
Sorry, readers, for my outburst. It’s been awhile since I’ve vented out in my blog anyway.
