I wish all Malaysians anywhere in the world a happy MALAYSIA DAY!
Some say that Malaysia is worse off today compared to the past. I look around me and wonder why they say that.
Those who obsessively read extremist blogs are convinced that everyone in Malaysia is racist. I wonder why my Indian Malaysian friend laughed when I told him an Indian joke. I wonder why my Malay Malaysian friend laughed when I told him how P. Ramlee's movie Labu dan Labi so typifies many Malays. And I wonder why they laughed even louder when I told them a well-worn story about how Mankind would never have been cast out of the Garden of Eden if Adam was Chinese because he would have eaten the Serpent for dinner, ate the apple for dessert and made wild love to Eve...and still get to live in Eden.
our national dish...i think
The one thing that Malaysians have is a sense of humour and our ability to laugh at ourselves and, at each other.
There's a lot to be happy about.
