Thank you very much.
A dream and vision shattered.
A new economic policy but not enough time to see it through.
A new eye hospital.
Aaaarrrhhhhh! You're stepping on my legacy.
Hmpprhhh!!! I need to take a nap.
Well, this isn't exactly an update la but just a short note. Actually, this thought has been in my head for a few weeks. Since I drove past the banners that have been put up in certain parts of Kuala Lumpur promoting the upcoming Merdeka celebrations. Malaysia's 51st birthday celebrations. The ones I saw were under the Jalan Tun Razak flyover at the junction of Jalan Gurney (don't know what the new name is la) and Jalan Tun Razak.
And again, the banners show only 2 things. On the left there are silhouettes of Petronas Towers, what looks like KLIA and some other buildings. I guess they are to represent the progress and achievements of Bolehland. Ok, nothing wrong with that. On the right hand side of the banner are the photos of the 5 prime ministers. Tunku, Razak, Hussein Onn, Mahathir and Badawi.
So again, we the citizens of Malaysia are asked to celebrate the achievements of these 5 people-elected politicians. Are we? What do you want us to do? Genuflect? Give thanks? Be grateful? Okay.
But my question is this. When is the elected government going to celebrate the contributions and sacrifices of the PEOPLE of Malaysia? Ever? I think the least they can do is to recognise and applaud the tolerance we have shown for their f**k-ups!!!
