Drivers starts flashing at you along the fast lane albeit you driving at 110kmph. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
Slowly and pathetically, I curse under my breath having to drive through massive pot holes, swerving left and right while going at 10kmph. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
Everyday, our newspaper headlines are filled with our MPs involved in scandals, or slandering each other, whilst provoking the public, so that the opposing parties do not get votes. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
Everyday in coffee shops, we see patrons, chatting loudly of how bad the government is, complaining and critiquing whatever the government is doing, blindly fed with news or hearsay, not bothered investigating the truth of those sources. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
We hear how much the people say the incumbent government should be ousted while electing the Opposition. When polling day comes, no one does so, just because they’d lose their sources of financial gains. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
And during the General Election, the government would win just because there were dirty tricks, the Opposition would win just because they gained enough sympathy. Aiyah, this is Malaysia-larh!
Of course the best of all, no one would dare voice their opinion unless in riots, just because they would bear repercussions not just on themselves but the whole family. Great.
And so, this is Malaysia.
