    AFP – Saturday, June 7

    MANILA, June 6, 2008 (AFP) – Malaysia’s opposition figurehead Anwar Ibrahim said Friday that a “multi-racial, multi-religious” opposition was emerging in his country for the first time to challenge the ruling party.

    The 60-year-old former deputy prime minister said many Malaysians of all races and religions were “sick and tired of corruption, of the destruction of the judiciary.”

    There is a “multi-racial, multi-religious cohesion of emerging forces in Malaysia which is clamouring for change,” Anwar told an academic forum in the Philippines.

    I wonder why Malaysia, who is rich of natural resources, cannot be a top nation. We can’t even beat a tiny red dot that has no natural resources at all.

    I wonder why Malaysia, who is blessed with almost no natural disaster, but its 2nd class Rakyat still look for greener pasture elsewhere. Malaysia suppose to be a ‘haven’ on earth, right?

    I wonder why its ‘blue eyes’ boys and girls, despite given 1st class treatment, yet still remain as ‘jaguh kampung’ with low mentality, and not able to compete on level ground with 2nd class rakyat. How long still you can throw away your ‘tongkat’?

    I wonder why,….and the list goes on. Malaysia still got hope?

  5. I don't mean it says:

    Why is Malaysia from Bolehland is turning into Bodohland and ending up as Busokland? Blame it one one race that fight under one racist party to take advantage of all our oil money to benefit the few that walk the corridor of power.

    I should not have return to Bodohland.

    there is a lot of hate, with abusive expressions unfit for matured dialogue and printing, especially on the posting “racist story in the Star”.

    one can only hope they are the minority few and that they will help themselves out of the hatred misery they brought onto themselves.

    Gate Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha.

  9. Blue Eyes says:

    When the blue eyes boy and girls know that they have no ground to argue, they hide behind the veil of ‘race and religion’, FULLSTOP.

    What the hack.

    I loved this song by kermit the frog and used to sing along. Didn’t really understand the lyric then but today it brings back tears and fond memories. Hahahaha. Great frog. Here a link to the original version some of us might remember. Thanks susan.

    Nice one, xy!

    They don’t plan in detail
    Screening the surface
    The cabinet ministers let go
    Never in their minds
    Visualize the effects
    What need to be done?

    Only giving a little
    And they think it is enough
    Squeezing the people
    They don’t feel the heat
    They are paid by the tax-payers

    They spoon the words
    Comparing apple and orange
    And they think they are clever
    The people won’t say

    They drill the past experiences
    They forget this is 21st century
    Years of abusing the system
    It can’t be applied any more

    The people aren’t stupid
    They know what the government is up to
    Filling the pockets of their cronies
    Legalize it telling it is decreed by law
    Ah the people know the truth
    The government leaders never dare to disclose
    Citing OSA and Seditious Act
    Just to escape with the projects they give away
    Direct negotiations the leaders say
    In other words cronies all the way

    Enough of the lies
    People will decide
    Today or next 5 years
    BN is surely becoming irrelevant

    Malaysia is a potpourri
    Of the many flavors
    Right in our midst
    This is Malaysia
    Multiracial yet shadowed by a race
    A pitiful dilemma but it is true
    The rainbow
    We cry many colors of hope
    Because it is out there
    Time for change is coming!

    Malaysia needs a lot of rainbows to keeps its ray of hope on us . Great song …long forgotten,nice to hear it again. We are multi-racial on the surface,below its raging fire as the BN politicians keep on pouring petrol to ensure the fire is burning always among the multi racial people. Malaysia could be one of the greatest country in the world with its multi racial/religion /population.
    Unfortunately ,in order to create a balance among the races, the Umno brains came up with the NEP policy which is supposed to bring up the Malay race, but this was hijack by the Umno few leaders who went on to enrich themselves and their cronies. The Malays and Other races on the ground were neglected till it exploded when the big Tsunami hit the Malaysian shores on March 8th. S’pore is way ahead of us in many areas for the very simple reason that they have meritrocracy in they government unlike here in Malaysia. Only a change at the Federal level can we hope to bring this nation back to its track after years being robbed ,plundered and mismanage by the BN regime.

    thanks for sharing.

    hopefully, we will find ‘IT’.

    prayerfully, we shall overcome our obsessive objective to raise a race.

    our aim ought to be of the human race.

    after all, don’t we all come from the same man, Adam?

    ashes to ashes, dust to dust

    I was switching channels watching between the EURO match between Chez republic and Switzerland and this Malay movie about a playboy by the name of Sudin who flirts with any women at hands.

    In my city, most ethnic and Malay women are attracted to Chinese man. And Chinese would find “Mat Salleh” men a caste better-off than than their own race.

    If you go to KFC, TGI Friday’s etc., interracial are very common nowadays, esp. Malay lass with a Chinese man.

    Happy Suday to all as I can wake up lambately tomorrow as every Monday blues, my alarm clock kicks me out of bed timely.😮

    My message was based on facts that I observed only.

    This is definately one of my favourite theme songs of the 80s when I was a child. Kermit is a very sweet and adorable creature. However, the song sung by him , although it fits the message you are trying to bring across, sounded very flat. There have been many versions which sounded much better esp by Kenny Loggins and Jason Mraz.😉

    Some people find economic independance on the other side of the rainbow but if this is about something spiritual like an afterlife, I sincerely doubt it. This is just an innate wishful thinking by the masses.

    Susan, the main reasons for Bolehland to fail and become bankrupt in 20 years to come, are due to the greedy leaders and their cronies who rip this country apart. They are mediocre ppl and greedy lots who try to accumulate as much wealth and assets as possible under the decoy of NEP, Just look at how they manage: the Majlis Perbandaran, Majlis Darerah, State and Federal level guomen agencies keep on spending like no tomorrow. They organise numerous domestic and oversea study tours using Rakyat’s subsidies (most of the time makan angin and shopping), holding meetings and seminars all over the country and occupying most of the seaside resorts most of the time(for example the Terengganu and Pahang public servants go to Melaka, Johor, Penang, Langkawi to hold meetings, seminars, courses etc and vice versa), the stupid NS and Guomen PTK exams which engulf billions of ringgit. Besides the irregularities in all Guomen Depts as reported in the Auditor-General’s Report also contribute to the huge waste of tax payers’ monies.. The list go on. So my conclusion : It’s the corrupt leaders in the corrupt party and system which caused BN the big defeat, not the Internet reports and Bloggers.

    A Malay Delima Revisited.

    NEP = Never Ending Poverty. That’s what it actually supposed to mean. Why? 50 years with all the Ketuanan thing and with all the rights that we are given, we are still complaining for more. And most of us are still poor. I believe this is a curse. A curse that make us lazy, make us take the easy way out, make us want more without working hard for it cos we have the right. This right is turning out to be a weakness or rather A Handicap. This right is a curse created by the Umnputras so that as a Handicapped I needed help, forever needed help. I cannot compete because competition will expose my weakness. I cannot perform because here its OK not to perform. I am allowed to fail because failure is mother of success. I don’t need A’s but only needed to be mediocre to get into the University. A majority of us failed but its OK. Of course we have those who graduated. But I could hardly find job in the private sector because eventhough I graduated I am constantly and socially told that I am the handicap. To the private sector my graduating from local university is a handicap. So we ended with the gomen. The gomen will make us even more handicap………we need the gomen to give us a living…to give us this right.. to give us NEP …..so that our votes to this right is secured.

    The next generation of Bolehland will see no rainbow, but only dark sky with thick clouds looming on the horizon. Who have destroyed the rainbow of the next generation? I think they are:-
    -the old and cunning Mahafiraun who destroyed the judiciary, promotes and condones corruption, a racist and a fascist
    -the 800 million dollar man who likes pretty women from the Genghis Khan clans
    -the 2.4 million dollar man who owns ranches in the sheep rearing county of the south
    -the paedophile who accumulates mountains of wealth from the nyonya land
    -the queen who issue APs to the cronies who duplicate APs
    -the 6000 taxi permit big-mouth guy
    -the grey hair hornbill who has huge hotel chains and assets oversea

    Pathfinder, I commisserate with your situation. You are not alone. There are thousands out there who are like you – feeling helpless, dependent and docile. Who do you blame? From my view, it is the doing of the BN Government over the past 50 years. Their socio-economic policies are ethno-centric, discriminatory and selfish.

    The NEP is a failure. It has not produced nor attained the desired result. UNdeniably, it has created some millionaires among the Malays overnight through various undesirable, unfair and corrupt means. They amassed a fortune but lost their souls. They continue to hide under the petticoat of UMNO land to pander to the whims and fancies of the UMNO leaders to perpetuate and expand their ill-begotten wealth. No wonder they want the NEP to be continued for their own selfish ends.

    The NEP is self-destructive. It has caused a schism among the races in Malaysia. It has not helped much in eradicating the poor Malays. It has brought about discontent, dissatisfaction and disappointment among the Malays and non-Malays. By some foolish desires to help produce an erudite, intelligent and industrious Malay community in every field of human dendevour, the Education Ministry introduced the Matriculation System to enable Malays to enter the public universities through the “back door” in a figurative ssnse. They were offered scholarships without having to fight and justify therefor while their “neighbours” have to waste one year doing the two-year STPM.

    The Malay students have been spoon-fed at every corner so much so that when they graduated from the universities they realised that they were “cheated” – they did not receive a well-rounded education programme. Another factor was, the lowering of passing mark for the Malays. This is likened to a generational suicide.

    Those Malays who are sent overseas experience a cultural shock Many do not want to come back because the realise that the Govt is not practising what they preach according to the rule of law and the constitution of the nation.

    In my opinion you write better than most of your Malay brethren and sisters. You should continue to improve and excel in the English Language, through which, you may join and ride the wave of globalisation for betterment of your self, your family and the nation.

    Hope that one day we meet and discuss the matter at great length. You can see that many like you are awake to the moster that the BN Govt have created the past 50 years. They have set the national development clock back by 30 years.

    There is why we look forward to a change of Govt.
