Here I don’t mean that mantra which all politicians, from aspiring wannabes to seasoned veterans, chant feverishly in order to look legit. (But most end up just talking).
Rather, it is about a team of talented engineers at Motorola Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Penang. There, circa 1980~84, they developed the first “designed & built in Malaysia” two-way radio, aka, Walkie-Talkie. The product was launched in 2 tiers, a Low-Tier model HT90 and a High-Tier model HT440. Both series were identical except for the outer case. The HT440 had a two-tone casing.
Daily, the R&D engineers would walk up and down, testing out the prototypes by talking (and listening). Kudos ! Malaysia pasti boleh. Penang lagi boleh.
Oh, where was I ? As a process engineer and NPR coordinator supporting the program — cari makan lah !
