Malaysia depends on its Chinese, right?

"IT is generally recognized that the Chinese are the merchants that drive the (Malaysian) economy, the Indians are the lawyers that facilitate the economy and the Malays are the politicians that skim the profits off the economy. Most Chinese and Indians that have the financial ability; leave the country. The best and brightest students all head for Singapore where the playing field is more equitable or Australia. In Singapore, their top students each year overall is usually from either Indonesia or Malaysia and these kids half kill themselves studying so they can be offered residency rather than go back to Malaysia/Indonesia."

No! It didnt come from me. If you read some comments about the Malaysian economy in Time.com, you will come across it. Not sure whether the writer is a Malaysian or not, it painted a 'not-so-right' picture about us, dont you readers agree?

Another one reads: "...the most important feature of Malaysian politics/social life is the NEP and NEP is more importantly based on race rather than economic status. The native Malays or Bumiputera or Bumis for short are given for example 7% discount in housing which other minorities like Chinese and Indians who fall in the low income bracket do not get. All companies listed in the KL stock exchange must have 30% Malay ownership... Government projects must be tendered by Bumis..."

We have heard too many of this but an article written by Michael Schuman has 'inspired' such criticism toward Malaysia.

Who should correct this 'perception-cum-impression'? Dont we have sufficient and efficient counter-mechanism for such attacks?

very true, indeed!

WRONG!

malaysia depends much on the wisdom of the malay leaders who have and had tried to accommodate the national interest.

it also depends on the tolerance of the malays who are willing to share everything with anybody with good heart and intention.

if not for such a tolerance, there wont be any chinese and indians and others in the country!

bear that in mind!

The keyword is LOYALTY. Jai, let's take a look at Malaysians who migrate to Australia, the US, the UK, even Singapore and other "greener pastures". Who are they, from which ethnic groups, and for what reasons. Most of them migrated because of economic opportunities. Others because of marriage. The bottomline, however, is still loyalty.

ni semua bertujuan melaga-lagakan kaum yang ada di malaysia.

siapa punya angkara?

pembangkang!

graham said...

najib is burdened with the heaviest task to unite malaysians as the anti-integration agents like this will never stop their mission to break up malaysians apart.

only malaysians themselves can decide whether to fall into such a trap or continue to remain resilient and work together for their common interest.

in this borderless world, we cannot help but listen, watch and read unscrupulous remarks written and hurled at malaysia and malaysians.

to all malaysians -let us remained united!

although there are lots of truth, malaysians should ignore this opposition-led campaign. anwar, karpal, kit siang and others play a part in this

lebai apong said...

apa nak kecoh2 ni...

jom gi pancing udang la jai. kat telok gong ada tempat baru.

kat situ, orang melayu, cina, india dan yang lain elok je duduk sama2, borak2 sambil memancing. takda pun sentuh isu kaum dan siapa jadi bos kat negara ni.

heh heh!

Hai!
Is there nothing else in the mind of an ethnic Chinese or Indians in Malaysia except to scrap the special position of the Malays? If this is so, why don't the Malays, while they are in power (politic?), get rid of these ungrateful people before these people get the full political power to get rid of them? Come on, lets have some wars and then we'll be able to see who will be victorious. Then we'll all be happy ever after (or in the hereafter).

50% true, To those who wishes to migrate , you may go.

30% Bumi equity is bullshit. Mana ada, semua ali baba .

You're obviously in denial. What is there to fix? You're one of many parties responsible for the misconception, defending those who marred our reputation. Have you not notice the rampant racism, corruption and idiocy demonstrated by those in power?

Ahirudin: "The keyword is LOYALTY."

Many moons past, an American friend argued that loyalty to country is so last millenium. He pointed to the John Lennon song Imagine - "Imagine there's no country ..."

He said that birds, fishes, and animals give not a hoot about any political, artificial boundaries - they go where they like. He asked if animals can have such freedom why then should humans be so restricted? Why shouldn't you and everyone else declare that this whole planet, every continent, every island, is your home, it belongs to you?

He posited that all these national, political borders are an artificial construct due entirely to man's selfishness. Man arrives at a place, declares it his own arbitrarily, and warns others to stay away, that it is his alone, he owns it and no one has a right to enter.

Well, it seems like he has a point there. What do you think?

jai,

kaum cina di malaysia ni lain daripada yang di tanah besar china, indonesia dan singapura.

oleh kerana mereka menguasai perniagaan dan ekonomi, mereka besar kepala.

di indonesia, mereka tidak berani kerana takut dengan melayu indonesia.
