Learn a bit about this part of Borneo, please

6. There are alot of things we got learn out of the agreement between Sabah, Sarawak, Singapore and Tanah Melayu before Malaysia was formulated. I suppose guys back then were so good at negotiation skills to arrive at such a marvellous geopolitical joint venture. Lands were separated thousand miles and yet connected.

7. Then it was agreed for sabah and sarawak to catch up with the development, but at no time will their pace and interest be disturbed. Of course it has to be done that way. Otherwise sabah and sarawak will be swallowed by greedy people. And there are perculiar things like ketua hakim borneo. They have to experience being independent in the federated malaysia.
