Are we sure things are so awful? (UPDATED)

UPDATES
I had meant this posting as a call for us Malaysians to reflect on the reality that we are citizens of a beautiful country, built over the years by our elders based on tolerence and respect for each others. I had meant it as a reminder that our country, despite not without its flaws is not such a bad place at all. It's meant as an advice for us to count our blessings. Unfortunately, the comments which came in started to get racial. I'm not sure what prompted the first racist comment, but as it always does, for every action, there will be a reaction. Try to identify the first racist comment and we will find out what could spark the fire which could burn down this country.

ORIGINAL POSTING
At my sister's place. Just now was watching Asia Food Channel on Astro. I don't have Astro at home. It was an interesting food documentry called Dining with Death. In that particular episode, its about people eating all sorts of bugs and other creepy crawlies. One of the things shown eaten was that big fat larvea found at sago trees.The young Thai girl interviewed said the thing tastes very nice and creamy after deep fried. Exactly how my arwah dad described it. Yup, my dad  ate that awful looking creature. He called it by its Javanese name, ulat beton.



Well, can't blame my dad as it was during the Japanese occupation. Food was scarce then. Nonetheless, I don't think I can eat the eaky looking thing even at the risk of starving to death. Then again, I may say that because I have the luxury of the present day. If things really turned bad for this country one day, and the situation warrants it, I may eat even more awful stuff than that thing. Well the Thai girl and her poor family are still eating that thing...not because its delicacy but because its there to be eaten.

Reflecting on this eating funny stuff thing, I think we Malaysians take things for granted too much. The luxury of plenty that we enjoy now do not come about like magic. We tend to forget that it's the result of careful nurturing of this country by our elders over the half century since Merdeka. We tend to forget about their sacrifices in these days where personal interests and ambitions reign supreme. We tend to be blinded by arrogance and selfishness into thinking that we are always right and things of old are useless and should be discarded.

But are we as a society strong enough to endure the upheaval of change? Are we really sure that what we have now are totally bad and need to be replaced with things that we are not sure will be good for us? Hudud laws as intepreted by Pas people, are we really sure we want to risk having such thing? Why can't we just work together to improve what we have now? Yes, I know, there are corruptions and abuses in the establishment, but no system is flawless. These are things that we can fix without uprooting the whole thing. I'm quite sure things will be better if we rationally fix it together. I'm confident that Najib will do his best to get rid of those corrupt people if we give him the mendate to do so. The alternative is Anwar and his fanboys. Are we sure they are as pure as they claimed themselves to be? Are we sure they are better? Are we sure we share Nik Aziz' hudud dream? Are we sure Guan Eng' sue sue sue childish tantrums is what we want to hear everyday when these bunch of clowns take over and rule over us?

Honestly, I rather eat a bunch of that awful ulat beton if I can avoid being lorded over by those people who if given the chance will rip our country apart to satisfy their arrogance and lust for power.

  1. If we don't change the corrupt BN gomen, then we will all be eating the ulat beton, all of us. 30+ years of misrule by BN resulting in almost RM 900 billion of illegal outflows in the past 12 years. We'll all be bankrupt in another 5 years of BN rob and plunder. Guaranteed.

    2. Macam tu jugak saya dengar LKS cakap bila TDM buat KLIA, KLCC, Plus Hiway, Penang 2nd Bridge, Formula 1 project dan juga Putra Jaya..

      Dah 50 tahun BN memerintah, tak nampak pun Malaysia nak bankrap.. semakin maju pulak dan orang Cina yang banyak komplen pasal koruption pun dah bertambah makmur. kalau koruption banyak berlaku, si pelaku (yang pemberi) lazimnya orang Cina... macam dah sebati dalam sanubari mereka mcam jugak kes Ah long, kes pelacuran, perjudian dan kes pengedaran dadah.

  2. BN's rationale for maintaining power is to continue to plunder the nation's coffers. You think all these BN politicians are in the game for public service ? How many have properties overseas ? How many have given Lamborghinis and Bentleys to their children or multi-million ringgit apartments to their children ?

    BN has to keep digging a bigger hole to cover the hole left behind by the previous leadership. The hole gets bigger and bigger, and soon nothing can fill up the hole, so what should the rakyat do ? Continue to let them dig ?

    The last 4 years in particular have been classified by businessman as the era of rape and pillage. No more. Save the country.

    1. Aiyo, u DAP people been saying that for donkeys of years la, yet this country is yet to go bankrupt. The closest we got to going bankrupt was when Anwar as finance minister want to kow tow to IMF during the late 90s financial crisis. U remember that or not? Or are u not yet born at that time? Eh, at least with BN arr, we can still wack them if they are corrupt or do wrong. U try la do that to Guan Eng, ask a bit about rainbow only he jumped want to sue sue sue you. With Pas people, u better not say anything...u really dont know what they are ploting behind u one. In front different, behind different.

    2. All these corruption nonsense started by the Chinese to get their way, but now since they don't get that much they go round telling people the govt is corrupt , they should ask themselves , who started all these nonsense in the first place?

    3. Spot on bro.
      After throwing BR1M to the low income group, we now have a complete data base of those who have been running away from paying taxes. There are abt 1mil tax payers all the while. Now those non tax payers who are neither BR1M now started feeling the heat after LHDN coming after them. These r DAPigs residing in urban centres who been voting oppositions. That's why they complaining like mad. There will be record tax collection again next years. The G used the money to channel to low income earners as BR1M and bonus for civil servant. This wld help strengthen support to BN

  3. Why not? Do we know the true financial status of the country? Now we have oil but what happen if the oil runs out? DUMNO has been pumping oil money into their cookie jar unlike Norway and Brunei which use their future plan for our current oil reserve? Build more Petronas Twin tower and Putra Jaya?

    Opposition can sue because there are facts but DUMNO main politics and creating fear base on religion and race. Malaysia is not just narrow Tanah Melayu but also the rights of bumis from Sarawak and Sabah. They do not form Malaysia to be Malay-ness. "Asia" is not just India and China but include countries like Thailand and Malaysia.

  4. Looks like the BN apologists here continue to dig their heads into the sand. Do you know the number of zeros in 900 billion ? Yes, that's the amount of illicit outflows from this country since 2000. Do you know that we could have had free electricity and water, duty free cars, tax rebates, etc with this money? Instead we have UMNOputras holding bank accounts in Malta, Switzerland, Luxembourg. UMNOputras owning mansions in London, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Ottawa, Singapore. We have UMNOPutras owning restaurants and supermarkets overseas using taxpayer's money, not their own.

    We are doomed with this bunch of robbers. Go get a life? Get your head out of the sand, open your eyes, and look around you.

    4. Toto - Many non chinese are very happy to buy them. Sugar is now taken by a Pakistani malay and the prices go up. Dap has no businessmen politics unlike DUMNO putting up DUMNO cronies in MAS, Bank Bumi, Pewaja, now Sugar, Ports and even Selangor Water treatment plant and MCA - Port Klang Free Trade zone all goes into the pockets including those in sabah and sarawak. We are very lucky malaysia have oil at US$100 per barrel. But when oil is gone, we are going to eat pisang goreng.

  5. People like you live a life of pepertual blindness. Being weened on BN's 55 years of lies and comforted by the fact that you people have a permanent crutch will not make you see beyond Malaysia.

    Yes, you will be eternally grateful because people like you do not have to worry. Everything is provided for. So why change a kleptocratic government since the spoils are given to you being the majority race. Oh, yes Anwar almost bankrupted the country, but today see how the countries which went to IMF with a begging bowl are fairing. See, how far ahead has Korea gone and look where Singapore is and the Singapore Malay has a qualification marketable and acceptable worldwide. Look, how fast Indonesia is steaming ahead and not to mention Thailand,who have beaten our automative industry to second best. Vietnam is blazing full steam ahead while Myanmar once it reav up ot potentials will push past us.

    Have this attitude and refuse to acknowledge that the wealth of this country has and are being squandered by BN politicians and BN government and to continue to put your hopes in BN will see someday Malays living actually in Tanah Melayu ie landasan keretapi tanah melayu, yeah that little patch.

    Who knows you may need to fend for yourself in Taiwan. Thank your lucky stars you have a Chinese boyfriend. He is definitely marketable in Singapore,China andTaiwan and safely you can live of him.

    1. So, those countries had beaten us. Hmmm, no wonder lah there are so many Indonesians, Filipinos, Thais, Myanmarese, Vietnamese cari makan here. Some even risk their life to come here illegally. There are also Chinese nationals who works here as....well, no need to mention as what lah. Come here to become beggers also got. Yes, China is a super power, no? As for me living of my Chinese boyfriend, I hope he read this. I think he will be so malu that another Chinaman can assume such thing.

      Delete
    2. Yes, today the Indonesians, Mymanmarese are here. But next time it may be Aminah and Aisyah working in Bandung as orang gagi.

      Mustahil? Think again. Dulu boleh kita yakin kata Jepun dan Korea masuk world cup. Kita yang terbaik. Sekarang main dengan Nepal mengelatar. Dulu Korea negara miskin sampai Filipina hantar bantuan. Per kapita Malaysia lagi tinggi. Kini Malaysia hidu bau punggung Korea. Nak cium punggung Korea terlalu ke depan. Dulu wang Malaysia sama nilai wang Singapura. Kini jagi half past six currency. Dulu Taiwan lagi miskin dari Malaysia, kini Taiwan lebih kaya dan maju. So never think mustahil Malaysia will not become like Indonesia suatu masa nanti.

      Of course you can claim no need to live of your Chinaman boyfriend because as a BN cybertropper and with your kulitfication and tongkat seumur hidup do you really need to work hard unlike your poor Chinese boyfriend.

    5. You want to talk about discrimination because of the color of our skin? Let me tell you about a Chinese colleague whom I had to train because she was clueless about her job scope, couldn't write simple letters let alone proposals because her English was atrocious and her Malay was even worse, which meant I had to carry the bulk of the workload. By chance I found out she was paid a third more than I was. The explanation from HR was I was worth less in the market by virtue of my being Malay and my local degree was next to worthless. 8 months later I found out she was credited with the account that I worked my butt off to get, and was given a fat bonus, even though everyone knew she couldn't have done it because she couldn't put a proper sentence together for the proposal. How do you explain that?

      Delete
    6. Well rightly she ought to be paid more because on life she has to pay more for everything, unlike you who get a priority 30% and a life long 10% off.

    7. That's your answer you racist? I am now earning ten times what I was earning at that Malaysian chinaman corporation because in Hong Kong where I am based now, the Chinese here pay people by merit, we are measured by work performance and not by some perceived handicap that you bigots feel that you deserve however underserving. You are so full of self pity, that I am not surprised that clueless airheads like my former Chinese colleague can get bonuses based on other people's hard work and sweat and sleep their way up the management ladder like those cases in Singapore.

    8. Your malaydian chinaman corporation probably involved in massage house and human trafficking thats why you get extra..sorry i work in mnc in malaysia.....chinese workers work lazy..take two weeks off on cny and even raya while malay colleagues sacrfice time and holiday.

Malays also under human traffiking - sending afghans, iraqi, iranians to Indonesia and then to australia. Malaysian mata2 get income from illegal burmese, bangla, napalese. What chinatown? DUMNO close one eye to so many illegals in Chow kit road, pasar road market and chinatown. Who traffikining Indons to come here and Pinoys also into Sabah?

  16. Reading this thread all over again suggests that the racist culprit is none other than kuching Besar. She assumes that all anti-BN commentators are DAP people. She makes another fitnah against LGE and rainbow. Only the chinese complain about daylight robbery and injustice ? Only chinese care about what the future looks like? Only chinese are angry at why the little red dot with nothing can achieve wonders compared to this country of abundant resources ?

    Why should BN supporters try their best to beat up singapore? People that have done well, you must salute, not degrade. Have some dignity, if your don't bother to do well for yourself, don't put others down. No matter what race they belong to.
