Welcome JohnLeeMK

There's a new addition to the blogging team here at Education in Malaysia. Tony has been really busy with his responsibilities as an MP and I anticipate that I'll have to restrict my blogging activities as I try to finish up my PhD next year. Also, we thought that it would be good to bring in a fresh perspective. Someone younger and who would look at things from a different angle. The new member of our team is John Lee Ming Keong, a sophomore at Dartmouth. I first met John at a blogger's meeting in Subang Jaya a few years back. This was before he left for the US to start his undergraduate degree. He came across as a precocious and idealistic young man then and his interest in things to do with Malaysia including the education arena has not waned even as he has immersed himself in the US education experience. You can read more about him on his personal blog. I'll leave him to introduce himself on this blog. Welcome JohnLeeMK!

How long will his probation period?

John Lee is good. I am surprised he didn't join Tony & Kian Ming sooner. Probation? That's for the readers to decide.

His infernal ramblings has overcome such nons.... as prob.....

He is a de facto writer. What probation?

A man of substance does not need recognition, validation or accreditation to prove his work; that's what de facto and acceptance are all about.

John may be young, but few persons could beat his maturity in analysis and frankness in details.
He is a high brow, per se.
