Aiyokkk..today’s paper serves me something shocking. not too shocking yet still it wrenches my heart at the first place. The Star online dated 31st Jan 2009 reports a news of a blogger been accused for posting a racist kind of entry. Putera MIC has lodged a police report against the blog, which is claimed to bring up an issue of racism and hatred against malaysian indians that provokes anger among indians. however, the blogger, who aptly uses ” Pendekar Ramlee” as a pen-name is believed to have removed the entry.
Hmmm..this is common; of bloggers being accused for provoking issues. it obviously shows that blogging plays a big role and gives such big impact to all walks of life. each and every entry does count in making sense to people. instead of expressing ideas and thoughts despite there are still subjects that must be considered and be wisely critisized. to me, there’s no wrong to put comments or to dispute certain figures but in proper way it shall be.
i prefer to remind myself not to be too frank nor to be too afraid. s0-s0 will make better. by all means expressing ideas gives no wrong but generally the way you put them into words does count.
After all this is what the bloggers have to face. it’s a challenge! do not stop us coz we dare enough to speak up and we simply take blogging as a real lust for life. huhu.. to “Pendekar Ramlee”, you must have had your own reasons for posting the issue, im sure. alas, just that your point of view might not necessarily be accepted by all..
p/S : i wish to read his entry.what is it exactly all about?…

How are we so “different”?
If “different” is just a thing.
If we all have certain features,
What does “different” bring?
People filled with hatred,
Can’t possibly see,
That there’s not really “differences”
Between you and me.
Looks can’t show “difference”,
If they’re just there to be seen.
If you don’t look like someone else,
Why are they so mean?
If being “different” is what is wrong,
I’d rather not be right.
And I’d want to finish living,
Doing the “different” fight.
This poem is specially dedicated to myself and for anybody else who are looked down due to their differences. living with less perfection points are not too bad i tell you. do not simply hate yourself or come down hard on yourself just because you’re different, you got less luck at certain points. let it be. coz there we learn how life works.
They say we are different. they say we are good at faking smile, we are excellent at hiding tears. we are being hypocrete..yes dude. say anything cuz we have our own paths to walk on. yess, i am different myself and if being different is a crime well i just bring it on. ‘difference’ is just a thing and definitely there’s no one would be the same to one another.
How different i am, how fake my smile is, i know i am doing right, strongly building up to professionalism. no matter how deep the wound is, it wont be a matter coz the only thing i seek for is atleast a little piece of peace.. that’s why i am being different. and i am proud being so.. who cares then?? be it! ;) ;)
Again, i got something running on my head. since i seldom have chance to speak up so i just end up writing down…
Looking at malaysia’s today scenario it somehow drives me to upper level of worry. over years and years there are always investigation on corruption said to be carried out. the matter of fact is, have investigations on graft issues thoroughly done?
After going through several papers of today, all i can say corruption in malaysia becomes too rampant though it is not as serious as the way it is in philipines or vietnam yet still it has to be prevented. to me myself i prefer to say serious condition of graft in our country is due to countrymen itself. it’s all about addiction and a bad habit more than an act of desperation. it’s a matter of ” i have money so i can settle everything on my hand”. if people have this kind of perception, it’s possible that they may be practising it well.
Let us take traffic offence for example. instead of just follow the rules and pay for their wrongdoings, most people prefer to settle the matter with the traffic officers, offer them some amount of money. see? both are in fault – the people themselves and the officers. yes, coz it takes two hands to clap!
Thus how corruption may be reduced? frankly speaking,the government policies! it should not concentrate too much on individual responsibility but tackle the problem on a wider scope. what i like most is about relevant actions currently taken by government in cleaning up UMNO corruption among its members. according to today’s NST, the bigwigs found to have used money to get votes would not be allowed to contest in the party elections. huhu..yes. alienate them,they deserve it okey!
I dont mean to be bias towards certain parties. it goes in equal to any other parties. for the sake of our own country they must not take it for granted but to seriously eradicate this ‘silent crime’. a thorough overhaul must also be looked forward to..
Do it, coz i am deeply concerned about this issue. to create awareness among malaysians on the evils of bribe, i think an oath should be taken here.
Follow me, shout aloud..
“We will neither give bribe to anyone for material gains nor will accept bribe!!!!!!!!”
