1 Malaysia meh?

Hehe..I know I know... the term 1 Malaysia is overused by many Malaysians since its introduction by our Prime Minister (not Optimus Prime). Everywhere, we will see people claiming to cook 1 Malaysia food, 1 Malaysia Cake, 1 Malaysia restaurant, 1 Malaysia Sales, bla bla bla bla until i want to puke... 1 Malaysia...all overused. But are they really 1 Malaysia? If yes, why is that in certain states, there are still racial and religious tensions? just recently...a group of emotional people chopped an innocent cow's head off and spit on it (insulting the Hindus) ? I feel sad when I heard about it. However, I will keep my fingers cross and pray and hope for better Malaysia.

Anyway..oops! I think I want to be 1 Malaysian too (I am shy now) . Although I am not a Chinese, but I like lantern festival. I bought some of the lanterns from our local store and gave them to my niece and son to play. They love it so much!
(This is a nice lantern I gave to my niece - she showed less happy expression on this photo, but after this photoshoot, she was running around the house with this lantern...hahaha)
(My son and my niece were happy carrying the lanterns)
(Using a slow aperture, I asked the two of them to swing the lantern to get this effect)

My nephew has a battery powered Ben 10 lantern.

1M'sia is a good concept but unfortunately, how genuine is this thing remains to be seen. I really hate that M'sia Boleh slogan. Abused to smittereens.

I think our Prime Minister promote 1 Malaysia as unity is very important to build 1 nation (Not 1 Nation Emcee) with proud and dignity in the eyes of the world (macam lagu Ella he heh..)

Oh I love those laterns! I remember when I am young I always enjoy this paper laterns. I like them more than I like those plastic or those present days one with light and music that runs on battery.

But sadly, this paper laterns burns up quite fast if we do not pay attention to the candle.

Today, I finally felt the presence of ONE Malaysia with my latest encounter with an absolutely two thumbs up hospital. ^.^

I do believe Malaysia is growing, albeit slowly (:

1Malaysia is overated. If you read the real meaning behind the 1Malaysia concept, you'd be surprised.

SunShine said...

@Cyril: Overrated or not, I'm just glad I'm alive, surviving, and the medical world in Malaysia is advancing!
