Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Worth A Read ... May 13, 2009

I think this piece is definitely worth sharing and a read ... A Million May 13s by Farish A Noor because if you are like me born in the 70s and were of the old curriculum of the 70s/80s in primary and as you progressed on into secondary in the 80s you will realise by the time you were studying History for your STPM paper - this seemed to be a different Malaysian History from what you remembered from primary.

You will also remember a time when races mixed freely and respected each other. And you would also remember the subtle but wave of change that took place which leaves you with a bitter taste and sadness that what was once the pride of being a Malaysian is now merely for TDC type documentaries otherwise we are a polarised segregated lot with mostly unfounded fears being drummed into our heads by sad excuses of politicians who get where they are by constantly stirring and adding more bits to the continuous threat apparently everyone else poses to them the 'chosen'.

Makes me sick that my daughters will never know what it means to have friends from every race speak eat celebrate each other. Instead in school supposedly intergrated goverment schools they are reminded repeatedly they are the outsiders and befriending one of the chosen is taboo.

All I can say is you bloody fooking policians have right buggered this country ... ENOUGH!!!! But alas, I am but perhaps a small collection of dreamers fighting our own extinction.

Enough of this fear and bullshit you perpetuate!! Give me back my Malaysia not your cerita dongeng (myths/fables) versions that you are now making to be fact and truth!
