Lima puluh tujuh
Merdeka merdeka tetaplah merdeka
Ia pasti, menjadi sejarah...
I remember how I used to love singing all the patriotic songs, and I'm still crystal clear with the lyrics
of Keranamu and Jalur Gemilang. Independence Days before my 18th year always seemed so
enjoyable. But after the beginning of SEA Survey, a class I went through before the month of
August, I started to see the truth in things, and Malaysia isn't what we really think it is.
What we do is always wrong. What they do is always right. So biased right our government?
That's a line I read from my friend's blog and y'know what, I couldn't agree more with her 'cause
it's true. What things we, as citizens try to set right for our beloved Malaysia, is wrong in their eyes
whereas whatever it is that could protect their own backs and allow them to sneak some stash into
their own pockets, they'd go to the extent of burning out someone else as sacrificial lamb and deed
in the name of National security.
I'm sure you guyz read or heard about the great Namewee outbreak. Do you think what he did
was wrong? If what he did was wrong, then what about that teacher that insulted us Chinese? Of
course, we all want peace and we respect all other races, but how could a great figure, so greatly
associated with the whole Malaysian educational system like the Guru Besar do such a shameful
thing as condemning a race like us with such wrought accusations and asking us to leave?
If she owns Malaysia, yeah, maybe I can understand. But guess what, if she owns a piece of
Malaysia, we all own a piece of Malaysia with us as well. So what's with the racist statement
calling us pendatang and the whole removal of all sources of Chinese direct contribution to the
Tanah Melayu's kingdom of old? Why so afraid of the truth? Why hide it from the newer generation?
And reading Namewee's blog, I found a new perspective within him about our country, and about
him for most part. When I first heard of him, I always thought he was one of those people with
virtually nothing else better to do but create ruckus in Malaysia to get attention. But no, he's in fact
a well-educated young chap who understand the constitution enough to get back at those who
defame the very laws we live by to date. So if you really think what he did was wrong, then you'd
better start digging deeper because if the surface gives you laughs, wait till you penetrate into
the dense complications that happen within our country. And this... Namewee sees. And he's
merely trying to do good for our country. Maybe vulgar. But look at his honesty and raw boldness.
He doesn't twist his words around and just gives you the raw information he wants his viewers to
deliberate on. Unlike the open media and politician, who changes the tongue according to
situational changes and give us a picture of what they want us to see in the big picture.
Well, there's just one thing I want to remind y'all to do when you hear anything form the news or
whatsoever. You can believe what you will, but always make sure you've got proof to backup your
belief. So just remember to see with you heart, not with your eyes. Listen with your mind, not
with your ears. And last but not least, speak with your soul, not your mouth.
And this concludes today's Merdeka post. I'm vague with the intentions of our government making
the ad about us Malaysians having to blur the lines and break the barriers because we're all
apparently to vibrant to be defined by colour. I mean, yeah, I like the ad. But it's such a perfect
satire to the entire political situation in Malaysia dontcha think? Haven't seen the ad? Just wait
for a tv commercial break @ 8TV and I'm sure you'll see that ad.
Avoid politics if you can
But the longer you ignore it,
one day, it'll come back haunting you
with an immense amount of pain along.
