Goodbye Pulau Batu Putih
Pulau Batu Putih is now officially Pedra Branca even though both names mean White Rock. That's how the ICJ in the Hague ruled.
Sorry Malaysia, and hard luck to the team led by the Attorney-General.

Yes, There’s a Bad Rice Crisis
Rice is the most staple food in this country, where in every corner people are looking for rice. We never thought that there would be a rice crisis - or shortage of rice production, - but here we are now, at the center of the rice crisis.
Earlier last month the UN secretary general warned that global food stocks had fallen to their lowest level in decades, driving prices up and threatening millions with starvationa. Thailand, a traditional supplier, has left her rice-buying neighbors in panic by halting exports to fill her own needs. China, usually an exporter, has also cut back sales because of a poor harvest last yearand now Cambodia has become the latest Asian country to impose restrictions on exports of rice. Let’s not pin-point others as the main culprit. We do have contributed in this crisis -But there are many other reasons why we do have this crisis.
Oil Price is still as high as ever. Which means that basic transportation, work efficiency by using farm production engines, and other factors are contributing to a higher production cost.
Climate change which collapsed Australia’s rice production- due to drought. It has eaten away at global rice stocks, which the country importers need to sustain their rice.
A population problem to the region, one of the highest rates in the World, leading to a corresponding leap in rice and agricultural consumption. Also, the population needs meat, and meat production requires huge amounts of water, labor, and grains to feed cattle, which in turn diverts resources away from rice production.
The current crisis has prompted the countries to underscore their policies which is currently need of revision. The crisis itself had exposed the fallacy of the countries that rice is abundant.
