I'm not sure if this is Malaysia..

What? Is this Malaysia?

Have you ever been on any public transportation lately. What's the common view?

Guess... guess..

come on.. give it a guess...

argh.. you guys gave up so easily liao.. kan nineh..

Okay. It may not happen only on most public transportation but i guess it's happening everywhere in Malaysia now. No matter it's Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Penang, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Seremban or even at small towns like Taiping, Kuala Kangsar or even Pontian.

Try to take a walk at places with a lot of people around you. Tell me what's the common view.

So I think i may have concluded thought reasons for these problems...
  1. Why malaysians were not keen to use the public transport
  2. Why malaysians pick their work properly
  3. Why malaysians choose to stay at home rather than going out most of the time
  4. Why it is very dangerous to let your children playing without proper guadiance
  5. Why the country was not as safe as before
If we compare our country now and 20 years ago, i would still remember how harmonious we were even we were living in town.

It's not something new. It's also happening in other countries like the USA, UK and all other countries with this common view. It's very related to the crime rate.

Would u guy still give it a guess?

Our Malaysia BN government is racist, corrupted and apartheid. Decisions are made for a few and a specific group and not for the masses. Period.

40 years ago Singapore left Malaysia. A little red dot with no natural resources has become a country which enables its citizens to average a per capita income six times that of Malaysia, based on foreign exchange rate.

The success story was made possible because the civil servants of Singapore are not corrupted, the ministers are not corrupted, and also the police are not corrupted.

Ministers in Malaysia may be paid RM300000 a year, but they live in palatial dwellings. Apparently, the ministers here only do part time job for their positions, and spend the rest of the time doing business. Is there no rule to prohibit minister doing business?

If there is, then it is easy enough to check whether their salaries and allowances could provide them the wealth and lifestyle. If not, then there is clear evidence of moonlighting.

Even though Malaysia ministers are paid maybe one-sixth that of their Singapore counterparts, Malaysia ministers are really Boleh in accumulating wealth. Either they earn it themselves, or they have especially gifted siblings or off-springs.

Without substantial inheritance to start with, there are many siblings and off-springs of past and current ministers who have accumulated hundreds of millions or billions in matter of years.

When ministers have such rich relatives, they are naturally surprised that price increase in ringgit and sen should arouse those "uncalled for reactions" such as what happened last time. The incident was a threat to the "Semuanya ok" image of Malaysia and had to be dealt with sternly.

If only Malaysia had uncorrupt-able ministers, then with our natural resources we should have at least the same level of per capita income as Singapore. If only the people subscribed to Malaysian Malaysia back then, we will not have to be so concerned about the price increase now.

Due to poor financial management of previous leader, the old man, the current government is running in deficit, thus the increase and change lifestyle. Most of the thing we buy today is not value for money.

A crooked people will vote for government that build crooked bridge. So as a corrupted people will vote for corrupt government. It is democracy, incompetence government reflects its incapable people. Wake up, Malaysians.

Most of government's subsidies were channeled back to support those Ali babas, corporate bailouts for MAS and Proton, cronies, lazy-to-work entrepreneurs, university students with few As, and etc.

What is the use of saving government subsidies on oil? So that Umno leaders can buy more luxury cars and feed their cronies?

This is the corrupted lifestyle of BN politicians and their cronies. They should change their lifestyle first before asking the people to change! They are doing unimaginable damage to this country and its future through their arrogance, corruption, and sheer incompetence!

50 years is enough because we do not choose you to tell us "change our lifestyle". The BN government is not admitting its mistake in mismanagement of public fund.

Najib and all Umno leaders are living in a different world altogether. They do not have the slightest inkling about the pains the people have to bear. They are filthy rich. Without empathy, how can the leaders think of the sufferings of the people!

How many more years do we have to put up with this shitty thing call BN. Gosh……….50 years is damn long, enough is enough.

Yes, let us change lifestyle once and for all by changing the government - that make perfect sense.

In history, teacher said that we must accept this injustice because the malays let us to live here as one of their citizens, if it wasn't of their tolerance, we wouldn't be here - during the time before we independence, they keep objects of we existence on this country until they achieve an agreement, where they are the more superior ones.

Shit……….Brainwash, nowadays even the text books about our country history can't be trusted, they intended to brainwash the younger generation so that they might thought that it was the malays who are the ones who made Malaysia like this today!

But what can we do since such issue is sensitive in our country, talking against it will cost we severely……….And they say, Malaysia is a democratic world.

Just because malays are the majority doesn't mean that the minorities should be oppressed. Of course there are some good people from that ladder - I have met a few awesome and smart malays……….the weird thing though is that they all went to Chinese schools. I am not sure if that is actually related, but I thought that was very weird.

But I think the special privileges should be removed. They were only supposed to be there (as agreed by other parties) that the malays would receive the special privileges for a set number of years. This set number of years is over!

This race stereotyping is actually the work of the present day government, headed by the Umno racist using race and religion as a tool to stay in power.

The native of this land a.k.a. son of the soil are the Orang Asli (Dayak, Jakun, Sakai, etc) in Peninsula and the natives (Dusun, Iban, Kadazan, etc) of Borneo. Not you malays arrogant pieces of shit!

Before the arrival of Islam into Malaya, the different races live in harmony without questioning religion or race . They may be cultural different but they accepted each other.

After independence, race was used by the Umno racist, and then formulated the NEP, which divided everyone. The Umno fascist use Islam in schools, universities and workplace to segregate, and in the name of fighting PAS.

The modus operandi of Umno has always be, divide and rule, and the devil is in the details and implementation of the religious department.

Umno is king creating diversion when they are cornered, use race and religion. Race and religion is the most explosive issues and they have used it successfully since independence.

All this is done to perpetuate their hold on political power. It is to Umno benefits to play the race card, because this is the only way to ensure their hold on to political power. And 50 long years have proven them right. The race card works well and works every time!

They have succeeded in keeping the races apart socially, and fanned animosity amongst the races with their racist and discriminatory politics.

All give politically reasoning - well here goes a correct one - malay is lazy because of Islam.

How can one pray 5 times and yet be expected to be productive? Wait for the foreigners to come and set up their factory and having to cater for Islam needs!

If malays embrace other religion then there is hope for Malaysia……….otherwise your hope is in the existence of Umno terrorist liars - don't count on them being there forever - we are factoring in Umno racist absence in our business plan!

The problem with malays is that they forget too easily. It was the Chinese, Indians and Malays who fought for the independence.

The NEP was design to help malays catch up with the Chinese and the Indians. Now looks like after 40 years, the malays are still behind and very proud of it.

Still want to receive handouts from the government! Still afraid to fight it out on fair ground with the Chinese, Indians and the other races! Fearful is the malay race!

Without the government subsidies and support - I don't know how many malay businesses will still stand? So when can we see some towering malays and who dare to refuse government help and still succeed? Grabbing other people success and call it your own success is not success but a disgrace!

Their laziness caused the nation's economy to slump and resources are wasted. They take 5 days to complete a day work. Malays always think that they are helping the other races when they are lazy. For God sake, please wake up! You are doing it for your own, not for anybody!

Majority of the nation need to be educated again. On the meaning of Malaysia.

Indirect employment discrimination based on racism is not something new in Malaysia and it tends to grow rapidly day by day. This will eventually lead to an uncompetitive situation for the organisation in the long run as the best talents are not sourced for the particular position advertised.

Najib request for the private sector to stop Mandarin-language discrimination shows how poorly informed he is about the way the Chinese are balancing the discrimination of the government against them by hiring their own people.

'Oh, my god.' I said to myself.

Who is perpetrating the big discrimination against Malaysians of Chinese origin here? How do we feel when all around us we see 'For bumis only'?

Such hypocrisy is so easy to forget when you are not the victim and so nice to enjoy when you are one of those in positions of superiority.

Apart from that, the Mandarin language is the world's most spoken language and with China emergence as a global market, it is imperative that we learn and equip ourselves with Mandarin.

I am working for a MNC in Manchester and the whites here (who are very proud of their English) has recognised that Mandarin is an important business language and are urging their staff to learn the language.

The current Malaysian government needs to change their attitude first with regards to discrimination before requesting someone else to do so.

Look at America. What happened to the American Indians?

Because they refuse or reluctant to be progressive and continue to stay in huts and forest reserves.

Similar here, the malays are not locals. Parameswara came from Indonesia? India? Can't remember but he was definitely not local. Where malays came from? Indonesia? Arab? What happened to our Orang Asli? They are the original settlers here, they should be the true real bumiputras. Not the babiputras we have here.

So it is history repeating itself again. Best example is America and Australia. All the Orang Asli in these countries are almost non-existent. Take a walk out in the streets, you will find more whites than aborigines.

So, these malays here, what they are doing now is, they are claiming land and take it all to themselves. They realize malays are:

1- LAZY
2- INCOMPETENT
3- NO SENSE OF URGENCY
4- SPOILT BY THE GOVERNMENT

This is the politics of finding blame for own weakness or laziness.

What I hate most is when those racist and jealous malays see a well developed township owned and populated by Chinese, and start rambling that the Chinese grabbed the wealth from the malays.

The NEP was abused to enrich only a small portion of the malay population. Now, the pie is shrinking due to global factors and the political elite is looking for scapegoats - and guess what - the Chinese are always blamed, as if working hard and saving is sinful.

As a matter of fact just like Mahathir once stated the government has been giving a lot of opportunities to the malays. The other races prosper because they constantly create markets and grab opportunities for their businesses "without depending on any extra incentives by any governmental sector".

I think this country is wasting a lot of time and energy on this racial thing - actually is an income disparity syndrome, the have and have-nots regardless of race.

Last time all first world. If Malaysia was a body, malay was the bone. Today very sadly, malay is the sick appendix, if remove it, Malaysia will be healthier.

It is a tiring affair to talk of the problems of malays. The problems are too many.

We talk and talk and give resolutions to government to do, i.e. we talk but are not doing anything about it and rely on others.

The typical discussion would be to say malay is weak in this and that. And the immediate inference is to have what is missing. Too often we are fixing symptoms and not problems.

We have tried and pump money into so many programs but we have yet to create the malay industrial and commercial class.

In any corporate strategy implementation, the key aspect lies in leadership and corporate culture.

For a change, I believe let us have an action oriented discussion. Maybe let us start to think and act independently. With a realistic appreciation of the parameters, only then we act more realistically and prudently.

In the end, we the common people must not be fooled by the political elite. We are risking our very life.

I am currently studying in Australia. I managed to get friends from China and Taiwan who are here to learn English. I am proud to say that I am able to communicate with them in their mother tongue.

All sorts of discrimination exist in our Malaysia nation and actively practised by our government. Discrimination is our way of life and heritage sustained by our government.

Don't you see in our national papers many advertisements on 5% discount given only to so-called economically disadvantaged malay buyers to buy RM3 million to RM5 million bungalows?

Najib knows this, otherwise he does not deserved to be our deputy PM. How dare he wants certain people to stop practising discrimination? That will be double standards and discriminating against people who follow the mainstream practice of discrimination!

Like the saying goes, mother crab is trying to teach young crabs on how to walk straight!

We should redefine what is the meaning of national universities! A national university is the university by the people, for the people and of the people!

Talk about discrimination, this is what we should do - but is Malaysia ready for such a cultural revolution? Me think it will take at least 2 generations (40/50years). Similar with education, you can't change it overnight, it takes time up to ten years minimum.

No wonder we are never near in any top rank world-class universities that would possibly produce prospective Nobel laureate.

I doubt if there is anyone who can fight with the "invicible hand" in this highly-globalize era. Countries, e.g. North Korea, Laos or maybe Ghana may able to do so by eliminating any international collaboration.

For the sake of Malaysian, please don't head us to this kind of circumstances. No one can close the door and do business internally.

Yes, certainly a change in lifestyle is needed. But a change in the management of our country's wealth from the abundant natural resources seems to be a more effective medicine than merely changing one's lifestyle.

Hey whilst having a dream to live in Australia is indeed good, don't forget that those who screw us all these while will be there too. They have mansions and yachts everywhere.

So wherever you go these people will still haunt you for the rest of your life. Again I m saying this, in other parts of the world there are natural disasters to destroy the nation but in Malaysia we have these numbskulls. Maybe God is just being fair.

Yes, I agree Australia is a Utopia because people manage the resources of the country well.

Australia is definitely the place to be for living a high quality life with everything you need. Was studying there for a couple of years and definitely would like to relocate there.

Seriously……….besides the good food, natural resources, some amazing friends and relatives, and (used-to-be) beautiful islands, I don't see anything that wonderful about this screwed up country run by screwed up people.

I give up. Period.

Most of my family on my mother side resides in Malaysia and I have been there many times. I think that many of these facts are true, but from what I see when I am in Malaysia is that, most the Malaysia economy is dependant on the Chinese population.

I have no empirical data on this but my observation is that the Chinese population is harder working and more entrepreneurial on average than the malay population.

I not reside in Malaysia and yes - most of the comments posted, if not all are true. We even call it here as the "crutch" - the government use to help the malays walk.

The government has the intention of dominating profitable businesses in this country. They even use the taxpayers money to save ailing malay government-linked companies, e.g. MAS (the national airline) with losses of over RM1 billion.

I guess much of this has something to do with the fact that most malays are jealous of the business acumen of Malaysian Chinese businessmen. It is our taxpayers money, for goodness sake!

Scholarships in local universities for deserving non-malays, especially the Malaysian Chinese people are always denied whereas the number of malay students (regardless of socio-economic status) with average results being sent overseas in thousands for expensive tertiary education, is increasing year by year. Meritocracy is definitely not practised by the government here.

On the outside the Malaysia society is in racial harmony. But deep down there is discontent amongst the Chinese and Indian community in Malaysia toward the government pro-malay policies.

It is just that we can't do anything because we are the suppressed minority as malays make up 60% of the total population whereas other races only constitute about 40%.

The malays are generally (not all of them) full of pride of their own race to an extreme and are emotional people.

I reckon bloodshed would happen if we were to openly and publicly oppose the ruling government. It has happened in Malaysia in the 1960s, where many Chinese in Malaysia have fought against the malays and died in the process for equal rights and treatment.

Maybe it will happen again in the future, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of history repeating itself.

Other than that, our representatives in the parliament are nothing but a bunch of bustards, that are placing more importance in debating aloud about making bow ties compulsory in the parliament and making countless other stupid comments, instead of discussing important issues like how to increase productivity and such.

Could any of you readers out there tell me what the very country is this? I just don't understand why we are paying these people through our taxpayers money. It is obvious that they are not doing their job.

It is just that the minorities here in Malaysia have to work harder than the malays to earn a decent living due to denied opportunities and unequal treatment. I am pretty sure liberal countries would help the minority but it is the other way round in Malaysia.

I am a Malaysian, I was born and brought up here, I have many a sweet memory in Malaysia, but due to all these factors, I just can't bring myself to shout out "Malaysia, I love you!"

I have nothing against my malay friends. They were lucky to be born into Malaysia. It is the government that is the root of all problems. It is dumbfuck pathetic. Let the truth be open to the world.

So I hope that the Malaysia government will learn from the history lessons - had to learn the hard way and, treasure their economically very active minorities and try to keep them in the country.

By the way, I am not Chinese. My grandmother is Chinese but my grandfather is from a mixed European-Indian background and my father is white. I am not putting the races against each other, I am just stating my honest observation from my numerous visits to Malaysia.

Exactly, a government change is what we need, not a lifestyle change as suggested by our idiotic money sucking Najib. We have the biggest cabinet in the world (where - Malaysia Book of Records!). And with every problem up pops a cabinet committee. For that also we have the most in the world.

Ah, this really is Bolehland, everything also can. Shake head……….

In previous BN government, there always had been widespread corruption and come election season, they will hand out sweeteners to the voters who will happily cross the box beside despite complaining about the government for the previous 5 years.

But I am under the impression that this is the first time these BN politicians (including their local councils) are showing the irony of spending lavishly and yet tell the people to buck up. Am I correct, everyone?

In Malaysia, the purchasing power of the whole country seems to be going into the drain together uniformly. From the economical meltdown until these days, have you seen any significant recovery yet?

My point of view is, I see the economy becoming even more stagnant and dying a slow death in Malaysia. Hence the sinking purchasing power all over the country. Coupled with competitive markets from neighbouring countries life sure is getting harder.

The government however played active ineffective roles to 'help' the situation. Everybody knows they are trying to divert the funds to save their arise in their so-called businesses when Soros began the assault.

This is where a lot of the tax money has gone to. But it didn't help because of corruptions and more money spent on useless mega projects - hence the wealth of the country is once again being abused time and again.

So with the raise of petrol cost are they still expecting the people to just sit idly by and let them be trampled with? We are drilling petrol for goodness sake, and to have things so expensive flinging at us is just bullshit……….I don't know what to say.

Do you really think we are lucky? Yes, if you want to compare it to Africa. But look - our country actually have money. But where did they all go?

Alright so now is your chance to change, in the next election. Many people get carried away by the 'buying' over tactics used by BN. If the next election the BN (robbers) still win big, then the people do deserved to be punished.

The amount of taxpayers money they wasted on those mega projects are not even funny if you calculate it. The amount of money they spent for their lavish lifestyle is ridiculous.

It all boils down to the productivity, the real income per head. In Malaysia, one person works, and many parasites have to suck from him.

Now Pak Lah says with the 9th Malaysian Plan to be materialized, they need to increase the civil servants by a certain number. Come on, we have already had enough parasites and yet more has to be added on because of the problem of the unemployable graduates.

We have a king size cabinet and yet we have to increase the already oversized civil servants further. How not to get our purchasing power shrinking!

Who else you want to blame! After living on handouts for lots years or maybe after a couple of generations how to change.

Sigh loudly……….felt so sorry for this country.

Perhaps we should convey this to the people who are not reading this matter or have so little knowledge about what is really going on in our country.
