Singapore Fighter Jets In Malaysian Airspace. Why is Syed Hamid So Cool?

When queried on Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew's insulting remark about Malaysia and Indonesia's treatment of their Chinese minorities, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar became very serious and described it as a "very dangerous" comment. However on the much more crucial issue of Singapore fighter jets flying with impunity in Malaysian airspace, he did not show any surprise or concern and remained as cool as the proverbial cucumber!

He said that the Foreign Ministry will only take up the matter of the alleged presence of fighter jets from a neighbouring country in Malaysian airspace once it receives appropriate advice from the Defence Ministry! He said matters concerning security and encroachment of Malaysia's territory were monitored and handled by Mindef. "If there is a complaint of this nature, Mindef is the agency responsible and they will advise us accordingly. Only then we'll take the next step," he said.

Sounds a lot like diplomatic bullshit to me. How come a matter so important as infringement of our airspace by military aircraft of a foreign country be dismissed with a "we'll wait for the melalui saluran tertentu explanation?" This wasn't the type of response in the past. In fact in April 2005, the then Foreign Ministry Parliamentary Secretary Datuk Zainal Abidin Osman said since Malaysia's airspace was closed to Singapore on Sept 18, 1998, the government had not decided till today to re-open the airspace for military exercises. "We are actually strict on many issues that cropped up between the two countries. We have decided on many matters on the government's firmness in protecting the country's sovereignty and security."

Has the government done some behind-the-scene deal allowing free access to our airspace for the Singapore Air Force? That's the only logical conclusion one can come to in the absence of a firm statement from our leaders. This 'let's wait for the Defence Ministry to check it out and get back to us' kind of brushing aside the question will not help.

Aiyah, he was cool because he WAS aware of the exercise announced much earlier.
What Mindef should do the next time is to drop tons of leaflets to these paranoid villages advising them of the exercise and not to panic when hearing jets roaring overhead and disturbing their peace.

What an eyesore it would have been if we had completed the half-bridge. We would have been a laughing stock for the rest of the world.

But the bridge did not make sense from the very beginning. In the days of the mega-projects - it was 'okay' in the sense that the new bridge to replace the causeway was just one of the numerous resources-wasting projects.

We do not need a new bridge to attract business to the Johor Port. Better infrastructure, and most important, better 'software' will enable us to compete with Singapore. In fact, the problems that the water pipes and cables underneath the present causeway would only arise if we go ahead with the bridge.

All in all, at least the project was stopped. Now we wonder how much taxpayers money will have to be given to the contractor.

To add to the 'state of the soup' on the bridge matter. Here we go again with the standard BN way of doing things. Recapitulating the bridge idea:

· Someone in the ministry comes up with a flea-brained scheme that is never thought through in its entirety.
· Another BN member seconds the motion based on 'feelings'.
· The idea is translated into some schematics.
· Idea gains immediate support in BN parliament because it will 'put our southern neighbor in its place'.
· No real quantification of the benefit to the people is made except for some vague generalisations.
· No public debate is held on the matter and its implications even though the scheme involves millions of the people money.
· Tenders are awarded for the contract to minions (or their proxies) of the BN.
· Arrogant BN ministers defend their positions when questioned by the people.
· Idea is accelerated through planning and implementation phase.

Then, all of a sudden - idea abandoned (as in education policy, environmental policy, fiscal policy, national unity policy, transportation policy……….you get the drift).

The net result? Wasted people funds in compensation for all that work mobilisation. No apologies. Worse, no minister's head rolls, i.e. no accountability. So, what else is new?

For those who still quote Singapore malays are victim of Singapore should feel shame.

This is biggest joke, when Malaysia malays think that they are fighting the right for Singapore malays and use this as an excuse to fulfill their greediness. Yet Singapore malays look down at Malaysia malays. They are proud to be Singapore malays.

Hahaha. Yes, again biggest joke is, they control almost every resource in Malaysia, and practicing daytime robbed, yet someone still quote Malaysia malays can get what they want if other race agreed.

This is what we called, Dr Spin.

Don't you know Umno strategy? Keep the malays forever dependent on them so that they can stay in power. There are many capable malays but they are so used to crutches that their muscle are dystrophic. It is like the doctor (no pun intended) who prescribes his patient an addictive quick fix so that they will keep coming back to him/her.

The fact that Mahathir may be more "modern thinking" than other malays, many may not aware, could be due to his training in Singapore!

Malays from Singapore just far outclass the malays from Malaysia in terms of knowledge and capability. But we have this "katak bawah tempurung" who thinks "don't becoming like the malays in Singapore"!

Friend, you are just far from them! You are just losing out! The poor deputy minister can never be as good as the Singapore malays in this life! And he never thinks to be like the Singapore malays to excel from the competition! Need to say more?

I too was fortunate enough to have a father who was farsighted enough to send me off to Singapore to be educated, some 10 years ago. Just like him, I will also send my children to Singapore one day, as I believe that their education system is far more superior compared to Malaysia, and to prepare them to face the future challenges in this competitive world.

It is not the race factor that makes Singapore what it is today. It is the system. Singapore is very wise and very careful never to mix religion/race with politics. Anyone irrespective of the race gets severe punishment if involved in religious or racial slur.

Their work ethics and accountability of their leaderships/heads and every civil servant based on merit rather than skin is so glaringly obvious. In Malaysia we are exactly the opposite in almost any area one can think of.

I really doubt many Singapore malays would like to move to Malaysia which obviously the Malaysia government would be too happy to grab them. Yet this is never an issue. It is not happening. Why?

This same goes to the Singapore Chinese. The Chinese there are more advanced than the Chinese here in Malaysia.

As a Chinese, I have to admit it and I really hope Chinese in Malaysia to start opening their eyes and learn the lessons to be more outward looking, improve themselves like learning more English and not dream that the next decade is easy going or get frustrated by the NEP.

We should first start by inculcate into our children from now on these values. There will be difficult times ahead and unless Chinese they make themselves competitive now, Malaysian Chinese will fall behind and be history.

Just like the NEP cannot bring an entire community to overcome their economic weakness overnight, so is the Chinese need to forge ahead to remain competitive cannot be achieved overnight. Start the ball rolling now.

To this end, I ask all Chinese leaders to lead and there are opportunities beyond the shores of Malaysia. We have to help ourselves because no one will.

If you are to make too much money in Malaysia, how the heavens can the malays catch up and give up NEP when the percentage of their economic cake will remain the same or stagnent?

So the solution for Malaysia is to increase the malays national wealth and the non-malays to increase their wealth globally - and keep it there. Right? This is open for dispute.

It is cool, Singapore malays achieved such feat because of the system, but the system was helped tremendously by the fact that there is no race issue.

I have friends in Singapore who are malays and they never consider themselves as malays. They always call themselves Singaporeans, something a country like Malaysia will never be able to achieve with the malays having the ketuanan attitude.

If only we have more people like a farsighted malay, Malaysia would be as progressive as Singapore. In fact with all our natural resources we could even be better than Singapore.

Our government is wasting money on subsidy to the malays when it should be teaching them to be independent. That is why today we see a lot of malay children too lazy to work and spend most of their time on drugs and become mat dull.

Slowly the Indonesians are coming over to take all their jobs and eventually they will be beggars in their own country.

There is plenty that I do not agree with the Singaporeans, their "one party state" for example, and their serious curbs on freedom of speech. But there is also plenty that we can learn from the good points of other nations as well, may it be the US, UK, Australia, even China.

But the underlying issue here is that a system based on mutual respect, meritocracy and equality works. Singaporeans have reach great heights in the international scene despite being very limited land, natural resource poor and limited population.

Yet their formula is a good example of a system that works. Every person benefits if they are willing to work hard and aim high.

Or would you rather Malaysians stay ignorant. "See no evil, say no evil, and hear no evil." Think about it……….

With regards to the space program, that one is a total bullshit. They wasted money like crazy and claimed Malaysia able to send people like to moon.

The most pathetic part of that is, they have to be able to determine the direction to pray from a space station. That is so pathetic and I laughed so hard at it, now that the so-called Ustaz are trying to study orbit mechanics. It is a stupid plan.

I don't care how much 'leadership' one have but coming up with such a stupid plan and claim it to be space program will officially submit Malaysia to be a laughing stock in the scientific community of the world.

Malaysia is not a place to invest your money.

The policies are so loop-sided that you cannot chose the best people to work for you but to employ those malay graduates who are way below "standard".

In the first place, these malays are not of intellect quality but the foreign and local companies are forced to employ them.

So, if a foreign company has a choice, they will not invest in a country like that where competition is solely based on skin color, and "know who" not "know how".

Malaysia now lags behind both China's and India's science and technology sectors, and regional rivals Singapore and Thailand now attract more foreign direct investments.

Why is it so that we lag behind all those countries? Just study who are the planners in the countries education system.

Here we have third class educationists in the form of Umno-malays, most of them are third graders in their school days, planning the education policies. They are actually failures academically and now trying to teach others about education.

Then look around the schools and universities. Just a cursory glance will tell you that the teaching staffs are not of first class materials. Many are byproducts of unemployed graduates who managed to get teaching as their only choice of vocation.

Similarly the universities teaching staffs are third rated too. When you have such lousy teachers, would you expect first class materials?

Whatever Malaysia is advocating, Malaysia is heading to doom! Agriculture, commerce, education, health, politics, social interaction, everything that Malaysia embarks is doomed.

The information and communication technology that Malaysia implementing is as good as doomed since day one when the corrupted and racist Mahathir laid hand on it.

Anything that is the genesis of this corrupted and racist Mahathir is doomed, be it Agusta, Daya Bumi, education - English to malay malay to English, EPF, Felcra, Felda, Formula 1, general election, MAS, math and science in English, military defense, MSC, National Service, NEP, North South Highway, Perwaja, polis task force, Proton, Wawasan Schools……….the list is endless. Nothing works in Malaysia.

Now the religious Badawi is implementing 9MP using Islam with the doctrine advocated by the corrupted and racist Mahathir.

This is more severe than the doctrine by Mahathir since Badawi adds another critical and negative dimension into the corrupted and racist doctrine, that is, the aberrant Islam!

This further decreases the efficiency in the utilization of good human engineering practices in a highly competitive global world!

The only way Malaysia can succeed is to embrace good human engineering practices compassionately, since only good human engineering practices can attain excellent, efficient and effective production in order to compete with other formidable ICT nations.

This means the practices of meritocracy, no NEP and racial discrimination!

With a corrupted and racist government practice corrupt and racial discriminatory engineering practices, the effective job activities and efficiency in productions are definitely to be lagging.

This means high production costs, inefficient manufacturing processes, poor research and development designs, with expensive and inferior products! Example - Proton!

The government might as well close down Cyberjaya, encourage goat rearing and save costs. At least the loss in capital is not as severe as in ICT ventures and by the year 2020, every people is guaranteed with a roast lamb!

The biggest joke is, the people themselves are to be blamed for supporting the current and always has been and probably forever will be, the BN.

That is keep it up and make them more and more arrogant.

We want to be hubs of everything and master of none. That is why we know for sure Vision 2020 will not be achieved. It is easy to set a vision and really another to achieve it.

Principally as a small nation with limited human resources, not making optimum use of its human resource by sidelining a major more advanced sector of its population through the NEP, will create many many more "Tak Boleh".

With people only interested in sitting beside a money machine, where Malaysia will end with, is already a certainty.

Any cure? No, no way. The entire makeup of the Malaysia society from corruption, greed, politics and third world mentality etc, will doom any effort to rectify it. We can't even talk simple things like "understanding each other" let alone major issues like corruption, etc.

Even God has got no solution for Malaysia the way it is going.

Summary of the cases need immediate attentions:

(1) ACA revamping
(2) Automobile industry like Proton deserved to be scrapped
(3) Corruption in the highest order to the lowest rank of civil servant
(4) Crooked bridge - did we just pay for more when it is not built
(5) Economical growth is stagnant in the country
(6) Education issues especially meritocracy systems
(7) Islamic religious stuff that undermines constitution
(8) Jasin a.k.a. the close one eye case
(9) MAS draining taxpayers money
(10) No equal wealth distribution to the people who needed it
(11) Police effectiveness
(12) Poverty in a few states namely Sabah and Sarawak
(13) Racial discrimination in many important positions especially civil service
(14) Racial issues being fanned by Umno themselves
(15) Rafidah and Sammy
(16) Scomi accused of corruption

Reports of ethnic-minority students with near-perfect STPM results not getting a place at the local university have become the norm, and yet objections are often ignored - the government claims that it is a fair game for all.

Personally, I had no choice but to go overseas to study, and my parents had to spend their entire pension savings on financing my undergraduate degree in Australia. After graduation, most of my Malaysian classmates chose to either stay in Australia or work in Singapore, where equal opportunities and fair competition give them better job prospects.

Before coming to the London I did my masters degree in Singapore, where I met many Chinese Malaysians in this situation. Most of us would like to return to Malaysia, but we know that research prospects for minorities are limited. No matter how talented we are, it seems we still have to travel outside our country to seek opportunities.

Unless we all vote in a more representative and responsible government, more Malaysians will leave.

I know a couple, the guy was a finance director in one of the big local banks while the wife was a finance manager and they had 4 children. They emigrated to New Zealand and the children were very happy with the new education system.

Mostly it was because what he had articulated as his reasons for leaving was somewhat true and reflective of the unsaid feelings of the majority of non-malay citizens of this country.

No one in the current leadership positions appear to have what it takes to bring Malaysia to the era of enlightenment.

My view on the future of Malaysia? Well, basically the same as the current African states, if not worse. Why? Because the government is an expert in coming up with new types of taxes to tax the people and use the money collected to throw at the Muslims literally. But are nuts when come to improving economy and social security.

In another 30 years, all the rich Chinese people will emigrate to China, while the rest of them will go to America, Australia and Singapore. What is left? A rotting piece of land with its inhabitants not any better off.

If the current government does not change their arrogant, lazy and stupid attitude, I will not be surprise that 1 Singapore dollar can buy 10 Malaysia rinngits in another 10 years time. Right, the Malaysia government has said that they have not dropped in their standards, just that other nations are growing faster than them.

This is the difference between Malaysia and Singapore. To the Malaysia government, what I want to say is this, "This tiny red dot (Singapore) has evolved from a piece of mud to become a piece of shiny gold, while in the same time span, you have evolved from a piece of wood only to stone, at the very best."

In the future to come, this red dot will further become a diamond, while its counterpart might just revert back to wood, if not worse.

I guess the racism goes on and on and I do feel for the minority race over in Malaysia if they had encounter a problem or a situation where they felt racially discriminated - and really can prove it.

I feel such sentiments almost everyday but I guess I always have reminded myself that, life is way bigger than the color of our skin and that what is more important no matter how clique it may sound; are families and friends.

(1) Some malays will say:

· Without Mahathir, who is going to fight for us?

· Without Mahathir, where can Malaysia go?

· Without Mahathir, we will all die!

(2) Independence malays will say:

· I don't need Mahathir to make a living.

· I don't need Mahathir to fight for my respect and dignity.

· I don't need Mahathir so that I can gain recognition on my own two feet.

But sadly to say, most Umno malays fall into category (1). The malays mindset, when are they going to change!

Umno malays mentality:

They want money but they don't want to work for it. They want investment but at the same time, they are afraid of being taken advantage by foreigners. The real fact is, nobody is taking advantage of them.

The fact is, Umno malay leader has spoil their own malays.

The fact is, Umno malay leader has never think about the malays.

The fact is, Umno malay leader in the name of "fighting for the rights of malays" has abuse their power to enrich themselves.

The fact is, Umno government has destroy their own reputation by being unfair to their own citizens include their own malays.

The fact is, Umno government has display no respect for international rules, no fair play, don't play by international rules, being a recalcitrant like Mahathir, and hence no respect from anybody on earth.

The fact is, Umno government is corrupted to the core and always wants something in return by just giving speech and signing a few documents.

The fact is, Umno government does not get much recognition from other nations except for third world countries like Zimbabwe, Somalia and Cuba.

The fact is, Umno government can never provide high skills job to the malays. MNC company can provide high skills job to the malays.

The fact is, there is no substantiate fact to justify that Umno malay leader has improve the education levels of their own malays.

The fact is, so many malays can't get high skills job is because Umno malay leader has fail to emphasize education as much as Chinese parents onto their children.

The fact is, Proton is failing. The fact is, MAS is failing. The fact is, Malaysia is failing.

The fact is, malay land will never be develop, unless Malaysian Chinese, Singaporeans or MNC company invest and create value out of it.

The fact is, Mahathir has brainwash malays into believing that Umno will be their free welfare system, insurance system, and also provides money and food for all malays as long as they can.

I am very confident that Vietnam will overtake us Malaysia before 2020. Their citizens are having the determination of moving forward and not looking backward.

Do not look down on Vietnam mental strength. Even in chess, they already produced few grandmasters, while we still remain behind with some international master titles only.

What Vietnam did is not comparable to our Oxbridge goon here training racist and mob future leader for the preparation of the 2020.

We should not compare to Vietnam because the standard is too high, we should compare to Afghanistan since we are also in the process of 'Talibanising the nation' and I guess we will reached there before the Afghanistan. Poppy will be our main export in future.

I am not Oxbridge but postgraduate from one of the world's top universities (non Malaysia). I can easily reel off a dozen reasons why Vietnam will overtake us and sooner than you think.

Sleep on Malaysia! I can't imagine any country that foolishly shoots itself in the feet. All the talk about human capital development is humbug - unless if you are thinking of only one race that seems perennially 'behind', decade after decade.

All the Umno politicians for the last 49 years have been perfectly useless not to be able to uplift its own kind.

And all that talk about the BN spirit and solving BN problems closed doors - absolute baloney! Wish I can just pack my bags and leave this swill and hogwash.

Malaysia is happy to be overtaken by any country in the world so long as malays can overtake non-malays in Malaysia. That is the 'Jaguh Kampung' mentality which has guided Malaysia since 1969.

And I glad I am out of this country. I would feel much better when I get citizenship elsewhere. Currently I only have permanent residence. Every single time I see the farce that all these BN idiots come up with - I laugh my ass off.

We will work and strive our hardest to contribute to the country that accepts us as we are regardless of our skin color and race. The funny thing is we are treated more like first class citizens in our adopted country as opposed to being second class citizens in the country we were born in.

Good luck to those who are still stuck in this God-forsaken paradise. Malaysia truly is a beautiful country. Unfortunately it was destroyed by a bunch of nincompoops.

Just look at the red tape in Malaysia, the state sponsored segregation laws, the state of the police force, the education system that is exploited by Umno members to, and how can we forget - the crime rate. Can we be proud?

Patriotism does not mean keeping mum while the government destroys the country. If it is not working, change it. People are the government, choose your right one and don't whine after the next election.

I can bear the above if malays are using their true ability, persistence, intelligence, hard work and other proper means to over the non-malays. But in actual fact, you all know. The malays will bring down this country in no time!

Yes, instead of building towers they are building holes in the ground.

I have worked in Vietnam, worked with them, have many I call friends, and I will tell you this - It is not a question of it but when! In fact we don't have to look at Vietnam, Thailand will likely achieve Vision 2020 which we already know we will fail.

It is undeniable that malays are stupid, incapable and lazy. Why don't they just humbly admit the facts and repent and learn from other races especially Chinese?

What is the point to argue here and wasting time again?

From the first onwards we were merely telling the truths. It wasn't us who think that way but their own Pak Lah as well.

All malays should go and read the newspaper, even Pak Lah is ashamed of maintaining the NEP after 34 years of implementing it and these malay baboons are still asking for it.

Even Pak Lah wanted them to compete on a level playing field.

So what does all these tell the world? It sends a very clear message that it is malays themselves who are incapable and lazy and they don't even want to admit it and make a change!

That is the biggest shame of all.

Can't you see, it is all back to square one. Year in, year out, some talk for half an hour, some one, some two. Some sing, many belt out their most recent released 'pantun'.

After all. Malays are good at that. Suggestions after suggestions, some good, some impossible to realize.

But, do you see any of these materialised? Hardly. Why, why and why???

Because the malays can never change. Never! Why?

The leaders forgot or were it they simply didn't want to admit and address that the actual disease is the malays and the remedy itself is also, the malays. They can never change. What is it about the malays?

Firstly as you all know, they are a lazy species. Since the beginning of time they have been like that. Even the encyclopedia called them as lazy people. I think those British with their accent tried to call them 'malas', and if you put 'y' in, it becomes 'malays'.

Embracing Islam make them a worse lot. Now they have a license to kill anything that gets into their way.

Malays are ungrateful lot. In reality, they just can't live or open their minds for others. When Mahathir said that they are complacent, they put him in jail. When Mahathir encouraged them to learn English language, they got angry with him, saying it is a 'bahasa penjajah'.

When other races 'maju', they got angry with them too. That was why at the end of Mahathir his regime, he said this, "I have achieved greatness as a prime minister, but I only fail in one thing, changing the malays."

Well, nothing to be surprised about anyway since Mahathir is not really a malay, and I guess that was why the malays were angry with him.

Drug abuse, hate, incest, liberal extremism (culture of miniskirts and gay marriages), murder, racism, rape, religious fanaticism, parochialism, snatch theft, spoilt-bratty behavior, tribalism, wife abuse, child abuse, all that is associated with the malay race.

To them, malay is the biggest impediment towards building a truly Malaysian nation, and should be chucked into the dustbins of history.

A genetically flawed race cannot be fixed by politically. Nature will take its course and globalization will put them out to pasture.

What have we got now?

Brain drain, economic disparity getting wider, poor education system, racial segregation, widespread corruption, inefficiency and uncompetitive on the government departments and others.

Sad. Sad. Sad. The question asked by many of my fellow Chinese is this - Why can't you just tell the malay peoples to adopt Chinese culture which is superior?

From research, this peninsular was part of the Siamese empire way before these malays from Indonesia invaded it.

Still so thick skin, don't want to go back to Indonesia!

The Chinese are not in control of the economy at all. Consider this:

Tenaga, Telekom, Proton, Petronas, Maybank, Genting accounts for more than 50% of the market capitalization of KLSE.

So basically malays already control more than 50% of the economy.

But problem is, only a few malays enjoy ownership of the economy and businesses while the rest are bleed dry. These people are millionaires and billionaires man. That is where the lies about the Chinese controlling the economy comes in, to keep themselves in that position.

So the ordinary malays are angry because they feel the Chinese stole their money. The Chinese and Indians and others are angry because they feel they are further discriminated on top of discrimination.

Non-malays on the other hand owned only 10% of such equity.

People like the Robert Kuok group were so pissed that the government pressure them to sell their business, they shifted their headquarter to Hong Kong. But when we want the world to see that one of the richest tycoons is from Malaysia, when we want fame, we said Robert Kuok is from Malaysia, not knowing that he has long gone.

What minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew has said is absolutely true. It is a simple fact. The Chinese and Indians have been marginalised since 1957, so what is new?

While the Chinese have been economically strong, the Indians have been lagging behind, simply by being a minority race in Malaysia and by being led by a complete moron for the last three decades. What is Najib so upset about?

Prove your worth as a race that can stand on theirs own two feet and succeed and you will have our respect. Until then, please just stop making a complete idiot of yourself and shut your gap.

This goes for the entire Malaysia cabinet. You are all a disgrace and a bunch of corrupt hypocrates! Malaysia would have been much better off if it had remained a British colony. Only then would there have been equality.

The malays are fall into the trap of other Umno-malays should treat like shits in Malaysia. When we demand over basic right, they always like to quote Singapore malays on not holding public position……….Please la, Singapore practise the real meritocracy, not the fake one like Malaysia.

And this make Singapore malays stand high when compare to Malaysia malays.

What make the Malaysian Chinese not happy is, we already being discriminated by our home country, when anything go wrong in Umno or in malay community, the Malaysian Chinese will be the target - for shooting or divert their the attention to their own problems.

Have you wondered why there are fewer Indians than malays in the general population in Singapore, that there are many more Indians than malays in high positions in politics, medicine, law, business, and many other fields that require talent and hard work in Singapore!

In Malaysia, there are tongkat or crutches available, but in meritocratic Singapore, even the smaller minority Indians outperform the bigger minority malays.

To Chinese, education is the most important thing to their next generation, so don't ask me why Chinese insist to have own stream of education until today.

To tell you frankly, I feel much comfortable when I move to UK, after few years I know they will offer me citizenship being a professional here. And as far as I know, there isn't a classification on the citizenship, I will get equal treatment as others fairly.

We have never experienced any racial discrimination in any form whatsoever the many years I have been in Canada. A Vietnamese sushi chef here I know was once a refugee at Pulau Betong. He like many others, I know has prospered and his children have all gone through university.

Malaysia loss of talents to other countries is the result of the pervasive special rights now entrenched in the constitution.

It was meant to last for 25 years to allow - in the words of the first prime minister - "the malays to catch up with the Chinese". It is now 49 years later.

In foreign countries such as Canada, it is the majority that has to take care of minority rights be it the gays, the natives, the women and whatever groups there are. We pay heavy taxes but these go for the low-income and poor people irrespective of color, creed or race.

So malay, you may keep your rights and perpetuate them. Such things are archaic. Who loses in the end? Your country, which should have been a first world one by today.

Down south, it is first a crooked bridge, then a scenic bridge, then a half bridge (of all things) and now, it is no bridge. It is amazing how easily minds are changed and how little thought is put into anything at all.

It makes us all wonder if there is anyone in government at all.

Despite their claims that they are very understanding, considerate and religious, the fact is that they just ignore the position of others in pursuit of their own self-interests and great name.

They never realise that they are at wrong and no use all sorts of means, i.e. the OSA, ISA, to silence you. Sometimes, they even resort to twisting the facts and figures to confuse and mislead others in efforts to justify their means and even make it unto a law.

They do this to anybody who is weak - the powerless, the poor, the minorities, even to the women.

On hindsight, our leaders just love to give all kind of 'fairy explanations' to cover up their blunders. No one from the cabinet dares to admit when a mistake is made. This means our leaders are still not mature enough. If there is no evaluation and no punishment for our leaders, this 'tradition' will keep on repeating itself.

It is not the first time that such huge projects - invariably carried out through an opaque system of tendering - have caused a colossal loss of tax revenue.

Sometimes we wonder whether the government is administering a country or running a night market.

Look at the western countries. Their cities are so well-planned and so user and tourist-friendly. But look at our own cities. Roads meandering here and there. I have seen newly tarred roads dug up within a span of two weeks for the laying of water pipes.

Snaked or crooked, be it road or bridge, it only adds to an increased cost of construction. Not to mention the increased damage to the environment, more man-hours lost and increased fuel usage.

Common sense will tell you that a crooked bridge is a crooked idea. To me, it is straight bridge or no bridge at all.
