Sit back and Relax.....

It saddened me with the happenings in our country. Daily, we are bombarded with war of words from various quarters. The country is in a very sad place. Disintegration of people in the country - war of words among the various political leaders, the Chinese, Malays, Sabahan,Sarawakians. What happen to the spirit of love, tolerance and accepting of each other regardless of race? The "race" card is being sabotage to the maximum. What is the real issue here?

As i was reading in the book of Numbers, one of the valuable lesson gained, is whenever there is a crisis, examine the root of the problem. The noise is usually the symptoms of the real issue. Try to go beyond the cloud of smoke, to the central issue. More often than not, the real issue is usually something else, more towards personal glorification and personal interest of some unscrupulous people. These group of people are expert in causing havoc, in a very very subtle way.


The "race" issue had always and will always be a favorite card for many evil people. These group are willing to stoop down to the lowest level to fulfill personal desires. To rule over all. They are willing to sacrifice the very thin thread of harmony that is holding the people in this country together. And so far, these people manage to spread the spirit of dissatisfaction the spirit of discontentment, the spirit of trying to be lord over all, in every corner of the country. The buds of these seeds are growing fast.



I hope, we as a "mature" (hehehehehehe) adult try not to be sucked in these negative frenzy. Let us not overreact. Let us all be calm, take out your pretty teacups, dainty china, order scrumptious cakes and old time favorite kueh from Anies and Poppet, be amazed at Baker Min's cake decorating creativity, feast your eyes with beautiful photos from FrenchlessinFrance blog, have a good laugh reading Hesitant Blogger and Sharon's children antics, drool on Shabbychic Mom Food Craving, be stirred by Fabmom's amazing vegetable patch, Labpapa interesting take on life in Japan, Fay's amazing and touching effort to move on after her beloved hubby's passing, Kuireena's new life in the UK, Jue's intelligent unit trust advises and witty musings by MyThinkPad.


Let us all sit back, switch off the tv (esp. when News time..hehehehhee), throw away newspapers, be calm, smile at Sofe's pic above and be grateful for what we are today.

I hope everything there is settled peacefully too. It must be hard to see it all so close up. But, as you know, you can think you are safe and then trouble comes from the outside as in the States or Europe. I just try to live each day to the fullest-you never know what is around the corner.

Hi Val.. aku benci with the current political situation. I dont know who is wrong or right. I just wish Dr. M is back and Pak Lah would go away, so that all is back to normal. Not that aku penyokong setia Dr.M. I love Anuar too.. oh, I'm confused !

Hi Whimsical....I was shocked to receive a friend's email with copy of the news in KL.
Gosh! We have been here 21 years and one would think such issues of race and whatever have disappeared?
And you are right, its the few that wants to retain the hold on power, money whatever that will sow the seeds of disharmony.

Hope everything will turn out okay....and people should go make tea and sniff the roses instead of all that noises. Lee.

Val Aziz said...

Someone asked me whether I am BN or Keadilan..I said "Saya sokong orang yang buat kerja betul"..so hard to trust politicians they'll sell their mum if it will get them wat they want. Not all lah i know, but so hard to find one.

Poppet said...

yup very hard to trust any politicians now... stimes awal-awal ok, then after a while baru nmpk bintik-bintik hitam...
just saw in the yahoo.com.my.. DSAI said he has secured enough seats to form a govt!

whimsical said...

don't think we are going to a better territory with the new gov't (shd there be a new gov't..) tho.Too many promises promised and such scarce resources to satisfy all...Hmmmmmmm
