I can’t help myself wanting to write on this. It has been quite sometime now. IT is not all about racism, or being a racist, neither is it about putting forward a Parochial attitude. But sometimes, I think the others side is .
Well, Malaysia has been out of the clutches of the Brits over a long time. But we know that there will always be an invisible hand that will be holding on somewhere, somehow.
MALAYSIA, SABAH & SARAWAK.
It is about being true to each other. It is about means of being together, loyalty they say. I say there is none. Somehow, everyone has a price on their head.
The question is WHY NOW? Sarawakians are hot on their heels, campaigning to be out of Malaysia. And of course, some Sabahans too. We can see that. Even from those days, entering the region, you need to bring along your passport. Only during Tun M’s time they have reduced it by only producing your IC, and yet you are only allowed to be there for only 90 days, upon which you have to be out of the state.
And yet we are call Malaysian? They say it was the agreement those days. Yes, agreement. It can always be updated, reviewed and renewed. Even the ISO documentation can. We have advanced over time and yet we are still lopsided. They call us people of Malaya, and we smile for we know very well that we are people of the Semenanjung. We are Malaysians. Doesn’t matter whether they (Sarawakians and some Sabahans maybe that want to get out of MALAYSIA).
We understand that these might be the doings of some unscrupulous business people or Politicians. But we too, the people of Malaysia feel that it is lopsided, one-sided agreement. That the people of S’wak or even Sabah can enter and be in the Peninsular Malaya (as they call us) can stay, live and die here in the so called Malayan Peninsular.
We have lived well over the years. Cultures have melted and mixed through marriages and development. and Why Now that they want to destroy it all? As long as I can remember, none of the state has sent us rice to feed on. But on the other hand, have we in Peninsular Malaya send rice over there? Maybe we have to ask the old Navy about that !
I was there during the Lahad Datu incident. Maybe if the military and the police from the so call Malaya was not there, then I wonder ! I still have my due respect to the Sabahans, though there are also some humming of the wind that say so, but it is mild. Not so for the S’wakian, I don’t. They are more proud of the neighbouring Country rather than the Peninsular. And they are only for them, and NOW they are telling the mountains and the sky , the winds and the rain that they want out !
Now carry on…Why wait, Anytime ! Would it affect us in the so-called Malaya? I think life goes on…. So go ahead for all we care. There are so many doors to open, to exit Malaysia…For All We Care
