It's Important to Write

I couldn't agree more with our former prime minister Tun Dr. Mahathir regarding how important it is to write, and to write properly at that.
For example, for is shortened to ‘4’ while you to ‘u’. It is fun as you can send long messages compressed into just a few letters. But over time, we lose the art of writing which is precious.
Not only are we shortening the words while writing, we are guilty of just typing them out from the computer and recently, from our intelligent phones and tablets. I think my handwriting is approaching illegibility as we speak.

If anything, it's also great to hear Tun talk about something as important as writing instead of those demoralising politic stuff for a change.
