Even though Malaysia is a third-world nation, there are many aspects of the country that are way above some countries which the people can be thankful for. We have the freedom to choose our government as evidenced by the recent general election. An important aspect that many people take for granted is the medical or health aspect.
Any Malaysian can get free medical treatment (including specialist treatment) in a government-run clinic or hospital. There is no need for medicare insurance like in other countries. There is just the registration fee of One Ringgit. It was at fifty sen for a long time. Are we counting our blessings?
