The Flaws from where I stand.

By any means, I am not here to condemn any party nor I am here to pull you to stand here with me. These are mere thoughts of a growing mind; a growing teenager. So pardon me if you feel offended as I have no intention at all to push you away.


Yesterday, I experienced one of the Malaysian beautiful moment. You may say I'm corny as much as you want. I know there are a number of you people out there aren't really looking forward for the "Tanggal tiga puluh satu bulan lapan" moment. But the fact from where I stand, still remains. So anyway, the scene began during my orientation for this whole new college thing. We were to fill up forms from the merged university which a known university from the States. Being the American system; your family name comes first then first and middle name.

So the speaker know exactly that us kids need help being in the Malaysian education system which kids are spoon fed right from the beginning to the age of 17 or 18. Thus, to the obvious he had to explain how to properly fill up your names as it would appear on the scrolls. First, he picked a Chinese girl for an example. Then, an Indian girl. He also said "anak perempuan". Finally, he asked "is there any Malay here?". Which to the obvious being me; i raised my hand after we had few small contacts and talks. Then he said sorry. I have no idea why. He then asked for our names and gave example. If you can't see the beautiful sight of this, I'm really sorry for you. Really I am.

I know the whole controversial issues about the nation, the politics and the religions seem to be the boom thing for the past few years. But I think that we should just give a chance to them. After all, you really do not know how to run a country now do you? I mean come on, even your college assignments or your school work are hard to handle for now. If you talk much about the whole mess, it is similar to not "walk the talk."

The cliché of this is that: you can't live in a lying government. O is that the best you can come up with? Don't come running to me and say that you are not living in a lie yourself. I mean, you may say you want to be involved in an activity just because it is your will. Free will. Being an idealist, I don't believe in a free will. There are always factors involved. So when you tell me you don't live a lie, you then are lying right this instance.

The board of censorship in the nation is always opposing of "obscene" acts, videos etc. It is a little bit of good old entertainment for God's sake. Obviously they are afraid that it would somehow affect the society especially the fragile and vulnerable youth. But don't you think it is a little bit too much? They often censor the awful truth of the world. Maybe I am a little be carried away by the notion of Art for Art sake.

If they really want to go around promoting the "obscene-free" notion, then they should just really shut down all the nightclubs around town. I have not experience a night-out in the clubs but I just assume that most of them are our youth, discovering themselves with the help of alcohol or boost of temporary "Utopian" world. I know they are just having fun being teenagers and you adults. O FUN!

It is after all the art of socializing. Something I never really master in. But the saddest thing of all; most of them are from the Muslim family. If the government really want to help, then there wouldn't have wealthy Muslim authorities, or the old married Muslim VIPs at the night clubs sticking out their dicks for a one night stand with these college girls.

But my religion teaches me to obey the authority and the government (Surah Al-Anfal: 60). And if you too at the slightest bit a Muslim, I think you should too be apart of this race. O I get it, you just fight for your right as a Muslim, but never really do what Muslims do. You know, the whole drinking and casual sex scene.

And I don't know why, it really bothers me to know that students who don't really participate their heart and soul in the academic world, are the ones that anticipate to scream their lungs out and celebrate or party or whatever it is they do after examinations. Somebody please knock some sense in their empty heads.

May peace be upon you my ever faithful ones.
