I miss you, Malaysia.

I suddenly remembered my primary school friend, Raja Shahrul. He was a pint-sized fellow and was my close friend from Std. 4 to 6. I think. I didn't know he was 'royalty' until other friends pointed out what Raja meant. I always called him Shahrul. I never knew where he lived or what his family did. When you're 10 years old there are more important things in your mind than details. Shahrul used to come to my house in Ipoh often for lunch after school. Somehow, my mother knew to cook pork-free dishes just for him. Shahrul ate. His parents didn't beat him for it. No police reports were lodged. This was back in 1958. We were friends. Things were a little different then.

My best friends were Hang Tuah (son of Datuk Jins Shamsudin, go figure), Taufik, Nurul, Kathiresan, and heck a lot of other non-Chinese.
In our school, we never identified with race, only that we are Tigers (King Edward VII forever!) and we grew up together like brothers.
Who gives a flying fuck whether the other guy next to you is a difference race? We were already 1 Malaysia then, and it's only now that we can see the non-unity policies getting ugly.

The good old days!

When kids mingle to play guli and gasing.

Catch ikan laga in the drain.

Climb coconut trees by the beach.

Make meriam buluh during Hari Raya,go around collecting duit raya.

Eat at the same table.

Run to help our 'brader' when they get into trouble with Lakshmi's dad,Rajoo.

Tolong jolok rambutan at Ah Kheng's orchard.

Sapu Makcik Meon's kuih pulu from her kitchen.

Those were the good old days!

Wake up, Patrick! The Malaysia you knew is long gone.

Move on, Patrick! The Malaysia you now know does not miss you. In fact it wants you to go back to tongsan even though you have no freaking link with that prosperous country other than being born an ethnic Chinese. You might as well jump into Selat Melaka because you are a pendatang.

Leave Malaysia, Patrick! The god-forsaken country has indeed been forsaken by the man (or woman) upstair.

Have a nice day!

Nice post Patrick. I find it sad that in Dubai or Jakarta you can go to a hotel and halal and non halal buffets are side by side and the people can all dine together. All we can do is ensure that we ourselves are not examples of intolerance. I do my best to befriend all Malaysians and encourage my kids to do the same. The fight for unity begins here in our home.

MasyaAllah, Anonymous .What a terrible thing to say. The Malaysia you think is long gone is still evident all around you, and it'll will proven in the coming election.I vouch that Patrick is an upstanding Malaysian, thank Allah for his mercy.

That was the good old days where I too missed my Muslim childhood friends...where we treat each other like of obvious different cultures and way of life.
We respect the faith and beliefs...of each other..sincerely.
We eat together..sleep together in holiday camps.
The Muslims I know are...well behaved and brave Malaysians.

Just like in the recent US elections:

1. 70 pct of Malays over 40 will vote for BN. 30 pct will vote for Pakatan.

2. 60 pct of Malays under 30 will vote for Pakatan.

3. 80 pct of Chinese will vote for Pakatan.

4. The Indian vote is likely to be 50:50.

So no one will get two-thirds, and it can go either way. When it goes Pakatan's way, BN will implode, all the thieves will run away to London, Geneva, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Indonesia. Some who can't run will squeal on the BN's atrocities.

The ultimate result won't be racial, it will be truth vs falsehoods.

Keep the faith, man.

When I was schooling from Form 2 on-wards, every Divali saw a friend who was of the same race but a Muslim pay me a courtesy call. I asked my Mom if the chicken we were going to serve was dressed according to Islamic rites and something told me she was lying when she replied in affirmative. I insisted on accompanying her to the Buntong N/V wet market and told the chicken fella that I wanted it done my way and that guy merely had to tell it to a Malay guy who did the needful to all 3 broilers. When my pal came I informed him what had been done out of respect for his faith. I was the one friend he never missed inviting to his humble home- his dad reared some dairy cows.His mom was an amazing cook and very hospitable - I guess he had narrated the incident to her. Little things go a long way in life.

To me it doesn't matter how long it has rule the country. Only ungrateful people would talk bad about its own country. Nowadays there are plenty of our people who would rather talk lies in order to rule Malaysia. We have been living happily here. Please do no simply talk and listen to the lies that has been told from mouth to mouth. If should the country brcome like those in Syria Egypt or even like indonesea than you are to be blame and curse.

Hello~ said...

To both 'anonymous' 9:16 PM as A & 12:42 PM as B

It will be Greece if we continue to be 'thankful' and to be oblivious to all the things going on right now

Also, you said "rich chinese around because of Malays are sincere"
First of all, there are the everyday honest Malays and there are the 'Ketuanan Melayu' Malays.
Second, instead of following what you said, how about "there would be more rich chinese, malays and indians if the policies are sincere and just"

Sorry but being a Malaysian, I can't really be thankful when my gov is draining the nation dry via corruption and race-based policies.

Again, B said "only ungrateful people would talk bad about its own country". How is it ungrateful if the people wanted a change for a better future? You're happily living here perhaps of quotas, have you ever thought of the people sidelined by those quotas? In general people will most probably think "After all, who cares since I'm getting the goodies and it is good to have a discount, why question it at all?
But if there is someone questioning it and might jeopardise my benefits, I must condemn them"

Please don't degrade countries especially Indonesia. I admit it used to have riots but in the end, they are progressing and catching up to us. Even the corruption rate is getting better compared to us getting worse

In the end, are you really that blind to see what is going on in our country? Or you are just closing one eye and continue to enjoy the benefits from a biased policy which clearly contributes to certain race rather than the entire nation.

Please think before you post yeah
