Malaysia Chinese demonstrationLots of Malaysian Chinese like to complain about the unfairness in Malaysia government policies, but sometimes you can find the Chinese being guilty of racism and inconsiderate as well.

Example you can see from the pic (from merdekareview.com) that a group of people demonstrating against the Universities and University College Act; I am fine with students seeking more freedom of speech etc., but what’s up with the Chinese banner?

Seriously, people need to know that it’s against Islamic teaching to renounce the religion after they convert themselves to become a Muslim.

Malaysia in particular, renouncing from Islam is harder than climbing the Mt. Everest. The controversial case of the late Mr. Moorthy is still fresh in mind; it’s uncertain whether he was buried for or against his wish in the end… and here comes a new case.

Bravo to Doha Asian Games opening ceremony for showing the multicultural side of Asia.

I was totally surprised that they were having Chinese lion dance and other cultural performance during their opening event, especially when Qatar is very much an Islamic country.

Malaysia should really learn from that, claiming ourselves as a liberate Muslim country but getting more and more radical these days are not the best idea to show the true colors as a multicultural country that Malaysia is supposed to be.

KTemoc has a good point, Doha shows more “Truly Asia” spirit than Malaysia Commonwealth Games in 1998.

Malaysia taxi drivers have been under headlines recently for all the wrong reasons; I had criticized some of them for embarrassing the nation too.

But as always, there are good and bad people in every business, and my friend was lucky to meet a good one… she left her phone on the taxi, and the taxi driver send it back to her after receiving a call from her.

The migration of Malaysian professionals to other countries is a worrying situation that should be taken seriously by Malaysia government. It’s irony that Malaysia is working hard to attract foreign expats while failing to keep our own local specialists.

For the past decade I’ve seen friends and relatives moving oversea every year for various reasons; the idea of migration has been mingling in my mind occasionally as well.

Kampung Berembang house destroyedWhile the illegal palace of corrupted assemblyman is allowed to stand, hundreds of residents at Kampung Berembang are homeless, with their houses tear down by local authorities.

It’s irony that the UMNO General Assembly has just passed for a week with leaders vowing to protect the poor Malays, and now a large group of people are living under canvas tent because on some irrational government actions.

Ok, those houses might be illegal; but those people have been staying there for decades, shouldn’t the government at least have the courtesy to provide them with proper moving plans before tearing down their houses.

The whole situation is made uglier with the government double standards, where the rich are protected, and the poor being abused.
