Malaysians we are!
"So please people, start feeling and being Malaysians. Live as Malaysians, move as Malaysians, dance as Malaysians, wink as Malaysians, fly a kiss as Malaysians, reason as Malaysians, wave as Malaysians, love as Malaysians, be angry as Malaysians, be stunning as Malaysians, be gentle as Malaysians."

Just a sexy article on being Malaysians, h e r e.

Yes...for once...we cam feel real united Malaysians....while UMNO guys are preparing Team A...Team B...and newly created...Team C..type of Malaysians.
It is a game to them.
Team C... neither for nor against. They simply want to leave...don't like the game.
All games are to compete against your opponent.
UMNO have ideas and stunts in political games.. that will put the whole whole..political games...into shames.
So advance...so out of the ordinary...so original.
The master of the art....resigned.. few months ago..is returning to play the game.

Yes I am proud to be a Malaysian as I am as proud to be Melayu.

It is stated in the Quran “O Humankind! We have created you from male and female and have made you into peoples (shu‘ub) and tribes (qaba’il) that you may know one another; truly, the noblest (akram) among you before God are the most pious (atqa) among yourselves; indeed, is God the All-knowing, the All-seeing.” (49:13).

The Prophet (PBUH) affirmed the benefit of genealogical knowledge when he said: “Know concerning your genealogies that by which you may make your ties of blood kinship close; for close ties of kinship are a cause of love amongst family.” The Blessed Prophet also announced, “The believers, in their love, mutual kindness, and close ties, are like one body; when any part complains, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever” [Source: Muslim’s Sahih].

The critical question being presented is why there are Malays individuals out there in this blessed country creating mischief amongst the believers, be they representing a racial based party, Islamic based party or supposed multi-racial party when Allah’s covenant is so clear. Who amongst them are actually safeguarding the interest of the Muslims? How would one view a comment from one supposed learned Muslim leader expressing his happiness in this Holy Month of Ramadan that “Pakatan Rakyat will benefit should Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad rejoin Umno as there will be "chaos in within UMNO", knowing that UMNO is practically made up of Malay Muslims while Pakatan Rakyat do not represent the Muslim community in totality. Is there so much greatness to see fellow Muslims in this country to be in chaos, forgetting that no one is that “Great” to determine the course of future events? Sickening, isn’t it, making a mockery of him while not contributing to the well being and unity of Muslims?

With respect to the relationship with the non-Malays, the Malays have always lived in peace and harmony with them; an honourable trade mark of our multi racial nation unchallenged elsewhere.

Has time changed? I hope not, hope it will never be and not at this point in time when I know there is so much evil threatening the Malay race, Islam and nation of Malaysia. Politicians aside, I believe the ordinary Malays generally feel the same way as I do.

Rocky, it is easy for you to say those.

However in actual fact most West Malaysians on the steeet, in the private sectors, in the kampungs, in the Government, may be yourself perhaps, etc., are very ignorant that Malaysia exist because of Sabah and Sarawak; if not for this 2 states it is still called Malaya. RPK Website would be Malaya Today! & Steven Gan would have Malayakini!

This ignorance has led to many unpleasant policies, insults, disbeliefs, disrespect, 3rd class citizen treatment, for a Sarawakian like myself. Is this true? Let me give you some examples as follows:

1. A lot of West Malaysians still think Sarawakians live on trees,

2. West Malaysianss think Malaysia has only Malays, Chinese & Indians while the rest are classified as "Others/Lain-lain". This "recognition" is proven & shown in almost every government forms, be it for school children or adults. But do you know that Malays, Chinese and Indians are minority in term of population in Sarawak or in Sabah?

3. Sarawak and Sabah achieved independence on 16th of Sept 1963 and not 31st August 1957 - yet West Malaysian leaders behemently refuse to accept this fact - isn't this a discrimination of the highest order?

4. Yet the % ratio of Dayaks/Ibans soldiers who had stood at the enemy lines and some sacrified their lives in the past in West Malaysia and in other parts is high - this is just to protect the country - that's more Malaysians than anyone else, don't you think so?

5. The late Tun Jugah was one of the persons who brought Sarawak to form Malaysia with Malaya, Singapore and Sabah. Do you know that in his home town of Kapit, until today there is no road access linking it to other towns? Had Sarawak not part of Malaysia, the late Tun being the paramount leader of the Ibans/Dayaks would have built that road earlier than anything else.

The list can go on Rocky but that would be enough for you to have some idea that it isn't easy to be a Malaysian like you have described. The faults of the ignorant West Malaysians who make and execute gov't policies are many. There are whole bunch of ingorant people at the JPN, the clerks who at bank counters who would reject ASB account application from an Iban, etc.

It would be ideal to refer to ourselves as Malaysians and not as Melayu, Chinese, Indians, Ibans, kadazans etc.Then there will not be any "Ketuanan Melayu"...just ketuanan rakyat will do.The "race" in our identity cards will disappear, and as all of us are Malaysians, there will no longer be any discriminations based on race.Affirmative actions to help the marginalised, the hard core poors and the disadvantaged can still be carried out, not based on race but based on needs.How ideal!

To me, there is no conflict being a Malaysian, Malay, Muslim, father, husband and blah blah....the list goes on.

As a rational human we do have choice to choose which identity to best represent us best in the greater scheme of things by exercising our god-given rational thinking capacity, to quote Amarty Sen (an Economist & Philosopher).

We, Malaysian!

Bro,

I started living like a Malaysian as this is my only home. I had close friends from all races. Also:

1. I cried along with other Malaysians each time a winning Malaysian stands on the rostrum with the Negaraku being played and Jalor Gemilang is hoisted;

2. I cried when when in the 90s the Malaysian badminton team brought back the Thomas Cup after 30 years;

3. I shouted myself hoarse each time Malaysia was involved in a hockey or football match;

4. I cried when Tun Razak died in 1975

5. I told my children never to refer to an elderly person as "Chinese uncle, Malay uncle or Indian uncle" and told them they all human beings and should be called just uncle.

BUT THINGS BEGAN CHANGING WHEN:

1. My children/nephews/nieces and others from my race were not given scholarships despite doing extremely well and coming from average homes while their richer and lesser performing Malay schoolmates got scholarships and special offers from the GLCs;

2. I could not explain to them why special privileges and quota systems continue although I paid, along with other non-Malays, quite a bit in tax;

3. My peers and juniors who were much lower performers, some with no special skill at all, were promoted;

4. I was referred to continuously as "kaum pendatang" by the late Ghafar Baba in his official speeches;

5. My children and brothers from the community were subjected to deragatory terms no less by teachers and politicians who are leading us;

6. My temples were being destroyed with no respect for the faith we have in our religions and there was little regard on the way they approach such sensitive matters;


7. Intsructors at Buro Tatanegara for overseas-bound JPA students blatantly told non-Malays that they should not question anything about the quota as they should be thankful the Malays gave them citizenship and a place to stay.

If these actions are stopped or reformed, I will definitely start doing everything Malaysian. It will come naturally.

Remember bro, it is a two-way process in everything we do. My loyalty is only to the King now, not to the Barisan Nasional government which I hold collectively responsible for this state of affairs.

My support is for any party which can undo much of these wrongs.

GOD BLESS MALAYSIA

wandererAUS said...

Most of us of different races, like very much to build a nation of true Malaysians. The missing link to achieve this aim...integration and equality, falls solely on the shoulders of one vicious political party UMNO. The use of race and religion as pillars of their political structure of power. Islam has been so twisted by politicians, it has even divided the muslim community and a no go area for non-mulims. How could Malaysians integrate with this invisible barrier placed on them.
Until we mature fully and confident enough, to move into these difficult and sensitive areas, to understand and respect each other, finding true Malaysians will just a dream.
My absence from Malaysia for 30 years, I observe, nothing has changed. Until we place the nation first before self, a new hope may arise.

Yet many still don't speak Bahasa Malaysia well.

If you are proud of being Malaysian, be proud of the national language also.

So, use BM in conversations you have with other Malaysians. Boleh?

A Malaysian Time Clock Slowly Clicking towards 16 September!
----------------------------------

Tick, Tock! Tick, Tock! Tick Tock!

Inbetween, spare parts and batteries still insufficient in case it stop.

Some try to move it faster by 15 minutes, some by 30 minutes.

Nobody thought of moving it backwards. I wonder Why?

Most keep on looking at the clock on the desk to check the time.

Some just make sure it is moving all the time.

Some just keep on staring at the clock, not sure whether it is moving or stopped.

Somebody propose the clock is not dependable. Must replace with another clock or bring in an
old working clock. At least the old clock don't show the date and month.

Someone even propose to have more clocks to make sure the time is correct.

Someone propose to put sunshade on the clock face so only some can see.

Some propose to change the numerals on the clock so that not all can read the time.

Some even propose removing the second hand from the clock. After that maybe someone will propose, removing the minute hand also.

Finally someone propose, "Why don't remove the hour hand also and just have the date and month displayed?

"Time is Golden? Does Man determine Time and Fate?"

Thanks for such a motivating spirit Rocky!!
Things have become too bleak,
because people are now always fighting and arguing.

I think on the internet,
Malaysians are the most disunited people. So much of mud slinging and bashing. (includes me, so thanx for realizations)

Go tell that to that "hero" of yours, Mahathir Mohammad.

He continues to feverishly drive a wedge between all the races through his very 'ultra' blog postings, inciting feelings amongst the Malays.

Greenbottle said...

racism is uncool and unethical.that goes without saying. and that's one of my main reasons why i NEVER vote for racist parties like UMNO etc.

but one can never get away from stereotyping and prejudice along racial lines and skin color. it's a sad fact of human race. and so, that's why i love one quote allegedly from warren beatty. can't remember the exact words but it was along the line we had to go on having sex with each other of different races until everyone of the human race will all be of the same skin color... sounds like fun and an excellent idea.

You think Rocky Can control his race by Punching ?

You think Bernard Can control his Race by unmasking ?

You thin Chedet Can control his race by pegging the ringgit?

The truth is nobody can do it with all the might and wisdom.

And Nobody should dictate who you are Including Ahmad Ismail or UMNO.

No amount of lawatan sambil belajar can teach you about that.

It is a natural selection.

God for all the education we have we still debating about race.

Can Malaysians please Grow up, handle things like an adult please.

The truth is Malaysians are still not mature.

We are a laughing stock.

'Proud Malaysian who is not so proud of Race"

Tell this to Ahmad Ismail and the many who are like him.

And he probably will tell you "Go ......!!!!"

Pity. After 51 years we still haven't grown up or matured.

We continue to quarrel and can't get along and we remain insensitive, disrespectful and distrustful of others.

Sloganeering, of which we are very good at, means nothing if it does not come from the heart and if we don't mean it.

After more than 232 years since independent 1776 Obama became the first African-American to be nominated to as President of a major political party. MORE THAN 232 YEARS. Even after 232 years Obama is still being refer to as African-american or black. so there is NO equality in American. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AMERICAN-AMERICAN:there are african-american, asian-american, latin-american, cuban-american, native-american etc..
FOR THE SAME REASONS NO BRITISH-BRITAIN, NO AUSTRALIAN-AUSTRLIA, NO CANADIAN-CANADA NO CHINESE-CHINA, NO INDIAN-INDIA SO THERE WILL BE NO MALAYSIAN-MALAYSIA. Just because we are malay, chinese, indian, iban, kadazan and others doesn't mean we cannot live peacefully together. If you ask minorities anywhere in the world they will say there are discrimination in their countries.
So just be happy that our country is properous and peaceful. IF ANY OF YOU ARE NO HAPPY LEAVE NO ONE GOING TO STOP YOU.
