Aiyoh! Bikin gua kepala pening oh!
You know, I always find it very strange that Najib, who leads a party named United MALAYS National Organisation (Umno) is the one who coined the slogan 1Malaysia. And he is supported by the leaders of other parties that are named Malaysian CHINESE Association (MCA) and the Malaysian INDIAN Congress (MIC). But the story in today's Star really takes the cake. In page N4 of the Star today the story announces that, "The 1Malaysia Cultural Award is now open for application from Malaysians of all ethnic backgrounds with RM50,000 each for two winners." Good right. It should be. Except that the report goes on to say that MCA prez, Chua Soi Lek went on to announce that the awards were aimed at recognizing contributions by Chinese and non-Chinese Malaysians in arts and culture. Huh??? The cash awards are for 2 categories - Chinese and non-Chinese - with an RM50,000 prize for each category. So even for 1Malaysia arts and cultural awards we have to start off with a racial separation issit? Why like that one? Well the good thing is if this keeps I guess up Namewee will have no problems with funding for his projects and Ah Niu will finally get his tax exemption for Ice Kacang Puppy Love.
