What an amazing victory for Malaysians.
The country now belongs to YOU again.
Democracy prevails and Malaysia stands tall with pride showing the world what true “Nationalism” is all about and how CIVILIZED  you are in your journey and actions leading to a new Government.
You have fought from your hearts for your beloved country. No act of violence. No bloodshed. No handouts. All you had was your spirit, your will and your  mutual respect for each others’ race and religion ; united into one Pakatan Harapan with one sincere burning desire to better your country.
Congratulations.
The world can learn so much from you.
  1. To never undermine the minority races who were born and raised in your own country. Worst yet to make them feel threatened and unwanted. Bear in mind, the Chinese, Indians fought alongside Bumiputeras to win independence in 1957.
  2. Today, people are intelligent. Malaysians are intelligent. No longer can “cheap empty promises” nor insulting negative-degrading remarks can win the minds and hearts of the rakyat. The rakyat yearns to see real meaningful progress and action. The rakyat are compassionate, humane and able to differentiate between truth and lies. Hypocritical, arrogant and empty headed leaders have no place here. Certainly, the country has no place for anyone calling a minority race “Cina Babi”.
  3. Money is NOT everything. The ex-PM offered money. A crown prince of a certain state gave out money for a one day “supermarket shopping spree” to vote for BN. Yet, after all the above, BN lost. Instead, the rakyat who were supporters of PH were not given a single cent. They came out in strength and in spirit to support Tun M and PH. They guarded the voting venues, organized talks and some were even jailed for their actions despite committing no crime. The rakyat merely wanted their freedom and fair governance by law and order ; avoiding discrimination, insults, inequality and leaders abusing the constitution amassing riches for their own selfish gains using tax payers’ money.
  1. The power of communication on social media and digital mode. The power of “writings” and the speed of spreading news have made the rakyat more aware and knowledgeable. Instantaneously, important happenings/news/findings with pictures can reach millions of rakyat in the country. And praise GOD that intelligent Malaysians can differentiate what was true and what was not. Further, international neutral news media also brought in information contradicting reports  which were totally misconstrued by the local Malaysian media controlled by the ex-PM.
  2. The ex-PM (Bumiputera) was using religion and race to disunite the country. Najib created fear that Malays will be marginalized if PH won. Malaysian Malays thus needed another proven Bumiputera leader to counter and neutralize this issue. Tun M is exactly the person needed for this task. He erased these fears by convincing the Malays and Muslims that their rights will not be taken away and that Malaysians shall live harmoniously together supporting one another to rebuild the country. All Malays, Chinese and Indians will have their rights in this country.
  1. Lastly, it is ultimately the MALAYSIAN RAKYAT who made this PH victory possible. Without the votes, without the perseverance, without the vigilance, BN will still be in power. You (the rakyat)  have had a crucial role to play and you played it well
Watching (on Channel News Asia) this whole event from a far, I cannot help but truly respect Tun Mahathir. For a 92 year old man – his wit, energy, focus, alertness, stamina, charm and memory are second to no one. It was simply inspiring and admirable. What a great leader !!
I also noted that all of Tun M’s speeches and press conferences were conducted not in the national language of Malaysia (Bahasa Malaysia) but instead in English. It demonstrated Tun M’s recognition of the English language to be the medium for international communication – for this historical event; as it was televised worldwide. In most countries, election victory speeches are normally given in their own respective national language. It showed to the world that Malaysia is indeed an English speaking nation.
Congratulations once again to all Malaysians.
Though I am now living in another country, my heart still has deep feelings for the place where I was born, raised and grew up in. My friends are still in Malaysia and I cannot help but feel ecstatic for them. I had tears and goose bumps when I saw the live telecast of Tun M’s press conference after his installation from the Istana.
The days of 9-10 May 2018 was certainly HISTORICAL and will be a beautiful story for Malaysians to tell your future generation !!! Malay, Chinese, Indians – you are all MALAYSIANS and you stand united fighting for a better future.
To my school mates of STAR 1 and EC,  Ramli, Ridzwan, Zainal, Fauzi, Khair, Khairol, Jeevan, Alvin, Jerry, Verayan, we are now in our fifties. It feels like the 70s again where we were all great friends regardless of our race or religion and having our daily euphoria playing football in tennis courts.
And a special tribute to our late Cikgu Roseana who taught us so well to be Malaysians ; regardless of our race. We love you maam.
Going back to our assembly hall, everyone can now sing  NEGARA KU with pride and gusto once again.
NEGARAKU
TANAH TUMPAHNYA DARAH KU
RAKYAT HIDUP, BERSATU DAN MAJU
Salam Muhibah,
Once a Malaysian …….

Good reading ….

An old lady went to a bank intending to withdraw money…

The old lady handed her bank card to a bank teller and said, “I would like to withdraw $500.”

The female teller told her, “For withdrawals less than $5,000, please use the ATM.”

The old lady then asked, “Why?”
The teller irritably told her, “These are rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a queue behind you.” She then returned the card to the old lady.

The old lady remained silent. But she returned the card to the teller and said, “Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”
The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and said to the old lady, “My apologies Granny, you have $3.5 million in your account and our bank does not have so much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?”

The old lady then asked, “How much am I able to withdraw now?”
The teller told her, “Any amount up to $300,000”
The old lady then told the teller that she wanted to withdraw $300,000 from her account. The teller did so quickly and handed it to the old lady respectfully.
The old lady kept $500 in her bag and asked the teller to deposit the balance of $299,500 back into her account.

The teller was dumbfounded.

*The moral of this story is that rules are inflexible but we humans can be flexible when the situation requires us to be. We should not treat people based on their looks or how they are dressed. Rather, we should treat everyone with respect and never be too quick to judge a book by its cover*

ANNONYMOUS….

Goodness ……(to others)

A brief account, said to be quoted by President Xi Jing Peng of China :

When I was a small child , I was very selfish, always grab the best for myself. Slowly, everyone left me and I had no friends. I didn’t think it was my fault but criticize others.

My father gave me 3 sentences to help me in life.

One day, my father cooked 2 bowls of noodles put the 2 bowls on the table. One bowl has one egg on top and the other bowl does not have any egg on top. He said ”My child. You choose. Which bowl do u want”. Eggs were hard to come by those days! Only get to eat eggs during festivals or New Year. Of Cos I chose the bowl with egg! As we started eating. I was congratulating myself on my wise choice/decisision and wallop up the egg. Then to my surprise as my father ate his noodles, there were TWO eggs at the bottom of his bowl beneath the noodes! I regretted so much! And scolded myself for being too hasty in my decision. My father smiled and sad to me, ”My child. You must remember what your eyes see may not be true. If u intent on taking advantage of people, u will end up losing!”

The next day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles: one bowl with an egg on top and the other bowl with no egg on top. Again, he put the two bowls on the table and said to me, ”My child. You choose. Which bowl do u want?” This time I am smarter. I chose the bowl without any egg on top. To my surprise, as I separated the noodles on top, there was not even a single egg at the bottom of the bowl! Again my father smiled and said to me, ”My child, you must not always rely on experiences cos sometimes, life can cheat u or play tricks on u. But u must not be too annoyed or sad, just treat this as learning a lesson .You cannot Learn this from textbooks.

The third day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles, again one bowl with an egg on top and the other bowl with no egg on top. He put the 2 bowls on the table and again said to me, ”My child. You choose. Which bowl do u want?”. This time, I told my father, ”Dad, u choose first. You are the head of the family and contributed the most to the family. ”My father did not decline and chose the bowl with one egg on top. As I eat my bowl of noodles, Sure in my heart that there is no egg inside the bowl. To my surprise! There were TWO eggs at the bottom of the bowl.

My father smiled at me with love in his eyes, ”My child, u must remember!When u think for the good of others, good things will always naturally happen to u!”

I always remember these 3 sentences of my father and lived and do my business accordingly. True enough, my business was a roaring success.
