  1. Congratulations. Hope he will be given a full scholarship by Malaysia to further his education in world’s leading institutions of higher learning before a foreign country were to hijack him with scholarships and bright future.
    He should be considered as a MALAYSIAN and not XXXXXX. Gems like him are always in demand by those who know how to recognize such talents.
    Vadhaiyan again.
