I'm not sure if this article from malaysiakini is accurate but our DPM was reported as saying that after that stupendous space trip, Malaysians are "a few inches taller".
I just checked and NO I don't feel any taller but I do feel cheated that RM90 million of taxpayers's monies were blasted into space.
That is one great ego trip for a nation that seems to be wearing thin on many fronts. It reminds me of the great empires that always embarked on vast projects when the empire was collapsing.
But how do you feel? Taller or poorer?
