On Counterfeit Milk

Back in 2008, we heard of The Chinese Milk Scandal, thousands of babies become victims, some died. That was the year when I first heard the danger of melamine. I remember it was a concern then regarding plates and food container we used at home for they are known as melamine wares. Melamine was the substance that was said, added to the formula to increase their volume  God forbid such incident happens in this country or anywhere else.

Back on the baby fair, we met this pak cik who promoted some sort of 'advise' on child education, he's selling some programme I believe, though I don't quite remember what it is.
All that I could recall he was saying something about every child is born a genius. But only 3% become geniuses, while the rest .. uhm... become 'de-genius-ed' at the age of 3 by the environment or education that we put them in. How true? I don't know and I doubt it. How do you measure a newborn genius-ness? My husband, he wore the best skeptical look in the entire crowd. 
Anyways, true enough, that environment has a massive impact on a person characteristic, that incl…
