Dapurku Yang Indah Permai
Mak Ngah masih ber SSP lagi uolsss...(statutory sick pay, nama lain for MC) Ubat Batuk Beecham yang I beli semalam from Tesco takdelah nak memberi kesan mendalam.Bertambah sakit lagi ada.I think,kalau tak kebah jugak by today,I nak buat appointment dengan my GP.Manalah tahu,ada something tak kena ke...
Bila dah duduk rumah sorang-sorang (and bebas dari asap rokok) merasalah I berbrowse internet berjam-jam sampai lupa mandi.Terbacalah this news about seorang Mufti tak bagi orang Islam wish the Indian/Hindus Happy Deepavali.Kununnya...we will end up wishing the goddess.
Why can't we wish the goddess? Will there anyway that we will become Hindu just by wishing the Saraswathy,Krishna and the rest,Happy Deepavali?
I'm quite unfortunate that some of my closest family member tak bagi I tengok cerita cina pukul 6 tu.Masa tu kami (me and my sisters) gila lah nak tengok Police Academy itu.Adalah yang hensen nama Chung Wai Kit...alih-alih,ada pulak makcik ni sound kat kitorang,dahlah tengok cerita cina tu,nanti kau orang jadi cina.Berdosa lah..prok prek prok prek...berbulu aje I dengar.
Since I was little,we were repressed to acknowledge that chinese part of us.I don't know why but it's more to do with a family anger rather than racial hatred.I know my Indonesian grandfather is a Chineseman,but his existense was hazed by a disgruntled ex wife.
When I come out from this all malay boarding school, I started to think that the Malay/Muslim are getting too edgy with their identity.We were told to safeguard and hold on to what we have and do not let others kacau our 'warisan'.In fact, the lagu Warisan was one of the school anthem.
When we read the history,is a blatant truth that the Peninsular Malaysia wasn't belong to any Malay.We were the orang datang...and by good fortune,earlier than the Indian and the Chinese.Being the earliest,we have the upper hand but upper hand did not guarantee a safeguard.We have to work hard too.But little that we realised that we are stealing from the orang Asli who have huge rights on every inch of the soil.
I visited my Chinese,Indian and Serani friends during their festives.But never once I want to copy their believe (however Christmas was tempting sebab all the hadiah kena bungkus cantik-cantik)
For the last 6 years, I celebrated Christmas like mad here.I even have a small tree with the tassle,angel and lights.It is just a celebration to make you part of the society.
All this isues,brought up by the overly clever people (mereka tak lah tak pandai,Mufti kah,Menteri Penerangan lah...) are only set to divide the nation and making the things difficult for the Malays and making other races,defensive.
So,whatever next? Jangan wish Selamat Hari Raya pada the homosexuals???? Well,don't be like that...buat aja rumah terbuka and welcome orang datang rumah.Hidup aman.
