The difference between a learned and unlearned person is the ability to differentiate arguments from debates [Taang Sianpu]

(a) Bu-al khuang e taikhua val e dimtui taang gual i thawh hunta ee.
(b) Dimtui taang gual i thawh hunta, gualtung va bang i tuan hunta ee.
                                                                                                          [Rev.Dr.Tun Go Lian]

You can learn about a person by the choice of word and the mode of language that person uses for comments, discussion and status on the internet (especially on social networking sites). They're just a reflection of the real person behind the screen. The trend of modern technology made our life easier with a time-saving advancement in collection as well as sharing information via the net. It helps employers to choose the right person for their company as much as it benefits employment opportunities for job hunters not forgetting that it reveals the truth about a person behind the scene as well [Taang Sianpu]

Being professional in communication is choosing the right word for each conversation indepth and presenting it in a decent manner regardless of the idea behind [Taang Sianpu]

    just like dumb one who cannot retell the dream..
  • Pauk leaf that wraps Taungzalat flower smells fragrant like that flower.
    So also is the same for those who associate with the wise.
