During Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Tan Sri Muhyiddin's visit to Miri recently, we witnessed an encouraging scene at Tamu Muhibbah, a market where we can always find one or two chess boards being played.
Tan Sri played a game of chess at Tamu Muhibbah with Chief Minister of Sarawak, Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak, Assistant Minister, Assemblymen, and VIP's watching.
The picture together with the news entitled "More money for rural schools" was published in our local newspaper The Borneo Post recently.

DPM making his move. And Chess benefits
Also related. According to GiloCatur blog when DPM was told that many sports including chess chess has been taken out of the MSSM this year he had this to say:-
"How can that be. Here I am talking about making sports a policy in schools and here they have cut the number of sports organised in schools. I am not aware of this."
