Malaysia Prevails

"Our Country is shit" , "Our country got no hope" , and  "Stupid Malaysia". How many of you have heard this before? At times I grow so tired of listening people complaining and complaining and condemning one after another about how shitty our country have became but yet you do nothing or you run away...

If your house is leaking, do you immediately shift your house? or do you ask a contractor or a plumber to fix the problem? We fix the problem. Why? because it is our house! Long have we live in it and fix it step by step to make it not our house but our home. 

The same theory applies to our country. If there is a problem, fix it and not run away from it. If it is like that  then we will be running for the rest of our lives and not solve anything. 

A lot of people said that it is hopeless. Have you even started to do anything or even tried? If you've tried,  then have you tried hard enough? Did you ask yourself these questions? 

There is this saying, it may sound corny by now "It is not what your country can do for you but it is what you can do for your country!". How many of you all have this mindset that when you do something, you want to make your family, friends and your country proud? One more question, how many of you, when you do something, it is not only for personal gain but also to ensure that it will help put the nation up there on the world stage? 

People often misunderstood between country and politics. Politicians are the people that "we chose" to "lead" and "govern" our country. Whereas the country is the place where we stay! Lets just take, a nice luxury car for example. The car is comfortable and steady, one of the top of the line model in the world, but if you get a fucked up driver who got no sense of safe ethical driving to drive you around, your ride will be as sickening and fucked up as hell. So end of the day do you blame the car or the driver? 

There is two part to this answer, one is that the driver and another one is ourselves! Why the driver? well for not being entirely honest when applying for the job. Why us? for not looking properly at who we are hiring to drive our car. 

So is our country stupid, fucked up or hopeless like some of you say it is? Not at all. 

There may be many different flags out there. the scale, the eye, the rocket, the star, and many more but all these flags is never bigger than this one...

and that is our national flag. 

In football terms, Sir Alex always says, "no one is bigger than the club"... same applies to our country, no one is bigger than the country. It takes everyone to make the country to what it is.

To say our country is stupid and dumb is just calling ourselves the same thing. How can we solve the problem if you run away from it? The only way is to fix it. It may be hard and long but end of the day it is worth it as this is our home.  

Aristotle have this saying "A state is not made up only of so many men, but of different kinds of men; for similars do not constitute a state"

We are unique because of our differences. We fill up each others weaknesses to ensure we come out strong as a nation. But how many of us see it that way? how many of us see each other just from our skin colours? Or religious background? If we put aside all those prejudices and celebrate our differences, we can do wonders and I believe that some of us have already done it.

How do we start? with ourselves! Action speaks louder than words. If we do not change ourselves how can we change others? We also have to believe! saying it is easy but doing it requires lots of faith! but it is not impossible! Believe and hope can bring a person forward! so lets start believing and move forward together!

Let me end with this saying:

"Don't let politics stop you from being a Malaysian, Malaysia Prevails! "
