Top 5 At 5: Tackling 3M Skills In Schools

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we bring you updates from the Dewan Rakyat. Today's main topics: supply of local white rice, late salary payments and EPF contributions.

2. Food wastage and single-use plastics during Ramadan: how will it affect us, and how we can decrease these practices as consumers.

3. Two kopitiams in Penang going viral for imposing a RM2 fee for customers who do not order drinks.

4. The impact of the amended Akta Universiti dan Kolej Universiti 1971 (AUKU) on university students.

5. The Minister of Education's announcement to implement an early detection assessment for Year One students, to improve their mastery of reading, writing and counting skills.

For these stories, we heard from Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, PR and communications manager at The Lost Food Project Gayathri Liew, and former president of IIUM Student Union Aliff Naif.
