Crooked thinking

If it is ok for Chinese people to be called 'cina gila babi' (chinese crazy pig) because they eat pork, then I suppose it is ok for Malays to be called 'melayu gila bustard'.

Before you start throwing stones in my direction, look up the word. Problem is some people never bother to check the truth or otherwise of what they may have heard. They then think the worse and start acting on lies. Sounds familiar? And before you know it, blood is spilled, houses burnt. That could have been the outcome of the Red Shirt demo in KL.

Muddle Malaysia circa 2015

Of late, Malaysia hasn't been in the news for any good reason. With the Ringgit near historic lows against the Singapore dollar, it is time to reflect on what went wrong.

This is but a sampler of what has been making the rounds on social and digital media (read: SMS, Whatsapp, Twitter, etc.). I disclaim ownership of all these. They belong to various people on said social media.

I hope Google won't exercise its right to replace these pictures with generic filler "X" boxes. The truth is already a rare commodity up north nowadays.

Furthermore, if not for how serious matters really are, only comic relief can relieve the pain honest Malaysians must feel for their country.
