The Search for Malaysia’s Million Dollar Feet is Finally Over!
Two young Malaysians are now one step closer to their dream of being top class footballers.
14 year old Muhammad Yusry Haziq Idris from Kuching and 13 year old Adam Roshan Kris Azman from Kuala Lumpur were the two lucky winners chosen out of thousands of participants. The preliminary rounds were held in 5 major states across Malaysia where thousands of young boys and girls were put through their paces by a specialist team of football coaches headed by Steve McMahon of Liverpool FC fame.
“The level of football skills in Malaysia is remarkable. Everywhere you look, you see boys and girls playing the game on fields, on the streets and even on the beach” said Raja Singham, BAC’s Managing Director. “We decided to sponsor Million Dollar Feet as Malaysians have incredible talent and we need to start them young because they need to get the right discipline, right training and attitude to build on their skills.”

Celebrating 200 Years of Tamil Education with EduNation’s Tamil Education Project!
October 21st 2016 was a milestone in the history of education in Malaysia as it marked the 200th anniversary of Malaysia’s first Tamil class which was held at the Penang Free School in 1816. As such, it was the perfect occasion for YB Dato’ P. Kamalanathan (Deputy Minister of Education) to launch EduNation’s trailblazing Tamil Education Project for primary school students.
“I am confident the incorporation of technology in the Tamil language will help ignite interest amongst our Indian community, especially our students,” said YB Dato’ Kamalanathan. “Since education is lifelong learning, this platform will be an excellent opportunity for the holistic involvement of students, teachers, parents and even grandparents in guiding their children or grandchildren with their school lessons.”
The Tamil Education Project currently has videos for the Standard 3 Mathematics syllabus and Standard 1 Tamil Language syllabus with plans to complete the rest of the national primary school syllabus by May 2017. With over 4000 videos covering 12 subjects in English, Bahasa Malaysia & Mandarin, EduNation also allows students to download free e-books, complete test papers as well as track their progress on the portal.
