COMMENTS FROM A FOREIGN WRITER BRYANT ON A RECENT MAHATHIR ‘S ARTICLE

Don’t listen to the Chinese view, it could be bias.

Don’t listen to the Malay’s view, could be prejudice.

Listen to a foreigner, the Mat Salleh

Watch out for the following countries in the next 20 years:
SUPER POWERS IN BOTH ECONOMY AND MILITARY

1. CHINA
2. INDIA
3. JAPAN
4. INDONESIA
5. VIETNAM
SO WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO ENGAGE IN BUSINESS WITH THE ABOVE
This is a very well written article that we should all read.

Comments from a foreign writer Bryant on Mahathir’s article:- Kaki
dalam Kasut where he says Chinese is the real master of Malaysia .

This article was written without fear or favour, and it is up to us to
digest individually the truth of the matter, especially for all
Malaysians (irrespective of race, colour, creed or religion).

To: The highly respected Tun Mahathir,

China is coming up, India is coming up, Vietnam is coming up and now
even Russia is on the rise. In this flat world that is all wired up
and regardless whether you are Malaysian Malay, Chinese or Indian, and
if Malaysia does not progress, all of you would become history of this
country!

Without the Malay, Chinese could not do well in the country and
without the Chinese, Malay would not do well. Both have to work
together to bring up Malaysia and mitigate the ascute impact that is
being brought about by the globalisation.

For me, a true leader is someone who has the foresight that not only
focuses on one particular group in the country but take care of the
future of everyone. A good leader is someone who knows what is the
biggest threat the country is facing and directs the people to fight
off the threat. A leader is also someone who is impartial that has the
ability to promote harmony in the country for a long period of time.

UMNO is a political loser that leads the country to nowhere. They do
not understand what is going on in the outside world. They have no
clue where Malaysia will be in the next 30 years. With the 3 new
superpowers, i.e India, China and Russia standing tall and high
together with the USA and the Europe Union, they do not know what kind
of world it would be and how Malaysia is going to compete and share
the ever smaller slice of cake of the world economy. They only know
how to get the Malays to fight with other Non-Malays on tiny issues
within Malaysia , while these races know jolly well that the issues
they are fighting are trivial and are totally self-satisfying.

UMNO does not give a damn to how the poor Malays are going to live in
the future and they do not care about the real benefits of the poor
Malays. They only want the votes from them. The NEP is a good evidence
on how they benefit the cronies, instead of the poor Malays. Despite
all their despicable acts they are still in the power.

The highly respected Tun,

As you are aware, the Malays control the rights to all the lands and
all other natural resources in this country. They control all
government institutions, GLC and State owned companies. The Malays
dominate the lawmaking process in Malaysia ; The Malays control the
decision making process in formulating the economy policies. The
Malays own the largest national assets and the Malays are given shares
in the public listed companies for free. The Malays have also been
given all kind of priorities when it comes to buying properties,
awarding of public contracts, tertiary education opportunities,
awarding of scholarships and even getting a job in government
departments.

With all these privileges and rights enjoyed by the Malays, you are
saying nothing has been done enough to help the Malays to catch up
with other races, mainly the Chinese. Then what else should Malaysia
do to satisfy the Malays? Did the Chinese seize or rob anything away
from the Malays or was all their wealth, a result of their hard work?
If it is all due to their hard work, why do you say it is unfair? I
don’t quite get your point here.

May I humbly ask you what do you expect the Chinese to do if your
so-called NEP did not achieve the desired result? Would the Malays be
happy if the ethnic Chinese in this country do any of the followings:

– surrender their assets and hard earned money to the Malays unconditionally;

– not to engage in any business activities;
– not to score As in all sort of examinations;
– not to make money that is more than the Malays are earning;
– not to advance to higher education; or
– renounce their citizenships and go back to China or migrate to some
other countries?

I am a foreigner but I am surprised that your intention is to divide
your own country. I think you are mainly targeting the Chinese.
Frankly, tell us, what do you expect the Chinese to do in order to
achieve what is so called “equality” meant by you?

Tun, after all these criticism you have against the present
government, I feel that you are starting to loose your rationality on
your arguments. You have run out of good reasons to convince us. I
guess it could be due to your accumulating jealousy of Mr Lee Kuan
Yew, your former counterpart in Singapore .

But reality is always hard to accept. No matter how, you have to
accept the fact that he is regarded the Father of Singapore but you
are not regarded the Father of Malaysia; you have to accept the fact
that Mr Lee is able to influence the government of Singapore until the
day he dies but you have not been able to influence the government
from the moment you stepped down as PM.

You must also accept the fact that he is still very popular on the
world stage and a leader respected by many but you are not quite.
Because of these jealousies, you are starting to accumulate imbalances
in yourself that leads you to embark on a series of action to attack
your successors.

It is very obvious that you are not happy when your successors are
more popular than you. Is there any good of doing that? What is your
intention? Can’t you take it easy?

During your time, you criticised most of the developed countries
especially the Western Countries out of jealousy and after stepping
down as PM you criticise every single soul remained in the cabinet for
not listening to you. When will you ever stop criticising any people?
Can’t you respect the decision of others?

Back to your recent blog, is there anything wrong with the Chinese in
this country?
Did they seize or rob the money away from the Malays?
Did they have the ability to come out with any policies to marginalise
the Malays?

Did they dominate the lawmaking process of this country?
Did they formulate the economy policies in this country?
Did they control the government departments in this country?
Did they control the state owned companies and GLC in this country?

Did they control the country’s largest oil companies and banks?

You know the answer, right?

Malays are the one who dominate the the lawmaking process of this country;
Malays are the one that formulate the economy policies in this country
that favours the Malays.

Malays are the ones that control the government departments, state
owned companies and GLC.
Malays are the ones that control the funds in this country.

Malays are also the ones that control the largest oil companies and
banking industry in this country.
With all these rights enjoyed by the Malays, what else do you want the
Chinese to do?

Surrender their houses and savings and their wealth that they earned
with their hard work to the Malays? Or ask all the Chinese to renounce
their citizenship and go back to China ?

Have you ever thought of the fact after 30 years of implementing NEP,
why it does not achieve the desired result? Or it does achieve but
being denied.

Under the NEP there are a series of policies that favors the Malays.
If with all these policies, it still does not give the Malays what
they want, what else do you want the Chinese to do? Is the Chinese to
be blamed because they are too hard working? Or the Malays to be
blamed because they do not treasure the opportunities have given?

You know very well the NEP has been misused and it only benefits the
cronies… So if you have designed NEP to only benefits the cronies,
please don’t say it is the problem of Chinese that NEP does not
achieve its result. It has nothing to do with the Chinese but NEP and
the Malay themselves.

This is a globalised world, Chinese and Malays should not be fighting
against each other because Malaysia is competing with other countries.
China used to be backward and lagging behind Malaysia but now they
have caught up and have even surpassed Malaysia . Can we ask them to
slow down their development? If they refuse to listen, can we make a
complaint to the United Nations that China is developing too fast and
this is very unfair to Malaysia , which adapts a more passive
approach? Who gives you the right to prevent others from progressing?

Who do you think you are? This is a flat world (Obviously Tun did not
read the book named “The World is Flat”). Don’t be so narrow minded to
only focus on the Chinese or Malay in Malaysia . We should now look at
the world as a flat world. If Malaysia does not progress, no matter we
are Malays or Chinese, we would be extinct one day!

Have a God-blessed day.

P.S   Next he is not a Malay, an Indian by birth, he is taking
advantage of the NEP to rob the country.

Older Version
An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and
laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It
spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the ant was warm, comfortable and had no shortage of food.

The grasshopper had no proper shelter, no stored food, and couldn’t find
anything to eat from the snow-covered ground. So it died and the story
ended.
MORAL OF TH E STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

Modern Version

An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and
laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It
spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the shivering grasshopper called a press conference and
demanded to know why the ant should be warm and well fed while he was cold
and starving.

TV1, TV2 & TV3 showed up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
alongside to a video clip of the ant in his comfortable home with a table
full of food.

The majority of the Malaysian Parliamentarians were stunned by the sharp
contrast. How could this poor grasshopper be allowed to suffer?

Khairy staged a demonstration in front of the ant’s nest.

Nazri went on a hunger strike along with other grasshoppers demanding that
they be relocated to warmer climate area during winter.

The Malaysia Government immediately passed a law forbidding all ants from
working hard in the summer so as to bring about equality of poverty between
ants and grasshoppers.

Hishammudin increased ‘More Special Reservations’ for grasshoppers in E
ducational Institutions & in Government Services..

The ant was fined for failing to share 30% of his food with the grasshopper.
The Prime Minister announced that this was part of the N E P. No ant should
question it. (Don’t forget, Tax Audits were introduced and targeted at
certain individuals who were eventually penalised heavily for not
contibuting enough to the well-being of the grasshoppers).

Many years later…

Some ant migrated to the US and set up multi-billion dollar companies there.

Hundreds of grasshoppers still died of starvation despite the ‘More Special
Reservations’.

Losing significant number of hard working ants and free loading the
grasshoppers, Malaysia remained a developing country, despite its abundant
natural resources.
All because the remaining ANTS were still doing their work
………………………..

Latest finding showed that almost all the grasshoppers in the political
arena and civil service were hoarding corrupt wealth which they refused to
share with fellow grasshoppers.

MORAL OF TH E STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2011.

_____

I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant – not a
grasshopper! Make sure that you pass this on to other ants. Don’t bother
sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it,
anyway.

I get the story above from an email sent by a friend. Not created by me.

People says, a picture paints a thousand words. So does the logo design. I understand this theory since many years. Try look at those big companies logos. There are hidden meanings beneath the design before they choose to use it. Am I right? Did they blindly choose it? Even some Chinese shop like “Chop Seng Kee” (I simply name one, don’t know whether is it exist or not)  would have its logo design with some meanings to show people the logo has S and K alphabets.

I sometimes related the logo with Feng Sui. You can call me superstitious if you want. The “combination” of elements such as shapes, size, position, colours, fonts, symmetric, angle and so on could bring the harmony of a company, school, organization or a person.

Perhaps, Bill Gates or his partners were lucky to choose the Windows logo. Perhaps Google accident to choose it’s name instead of Goggle is a destiny. Perhaps Apple is such a simple fruit. Perhaps Linus Torvalds is naughty and get bitten by a penguin is funny. And so many perhaps and coincidence.

Sometimes people just wonder why MCA is such a loser? Have you ever wonder what are the meaning hiding behind it’s logo? Since the lost of 308 GE, MCA understood that it needs to change. But until today, I don’t see any. Including the logo, it is still the same.

I like to decrypt the meaning behind a logo when I see one when I passing by any sign board. I am base on what I learn in my Art class during primary school. Or to make it simple, I think everyone learn what does our Malaysian flag means? What is the moon and star means, 14 stripes and 4 colours. OK, now you get me. Let’s apply this knowledge to analyse an example, MCA logo.

From what I can see and interpret from the logo, it is very obvious the logo or flag has a 14-point star in yellow with the blue background. Simple. When you see it, it reminds you of our Malaysian flag. Someone may notice it is actually based on Taiwan Kuomintang flag.

From what I see, MCA (logo designer) is some sort of a copy cat. Wait, I don’t see Red colour in the flag. What does Red colour represent? From what I learned from Malaysian flag, it means bold, brave warrior in a battle. Is this why MCA lacking of this element during their speech? How about White? White means purity, good moral mindset and incorruptibility as claimed by DAP flag. And again, MCA logo has no white colour in it’s design.

The logo has been designed for more than 50 years. In my opinion, it has to be changed to reflect the modern life. Talking about the party’s anthem is another story. I think it is the same case. The change doesn’t mean that MCA also need to change it’s party constitution or code of conduct. My opinion is a change means new perspective and paradigm shift to make the party more relevant in the future of political path.
