When we were in Form three during our first term exams in our Junior Cambridge Year as students we did not take into account much of the 1st terms results. I for one being the “extreme one” felt unmoved when the principal read the results out in front of the class. LAST… in Class! Oh my God! Cannot be.., exclaimed my classmates..! To top it up this was the year before I sat for my Junior Cambridge. If I don’t pass I will not be in Fourth Year and all my parents dreams will perished.
Was it a dare..? Have I cracked up from too much expectations..? I planned,worked it well in a way it was to tell my parents don’t expect too much from your son. No.1 or No.2 was my own mark set and if I was placed No.3 I would go to my room and cry. That is pushing the limits but if I had not done that or for that matter my parents were not strict and send me out to live with my uncle I would not have today. The rests is history and I passed with flying colours. I thank them for that though it was a bit “extreme” at that time. Students don’t try it hehe.
When Baradan Kuppusamy wrote “Opposition pledges yet to be fulfilled” In Malaysiakini I said to myself that is only 100 out of a possible 1825 days. In football it’s just the first 5 minutes and there are 85 minutes still to go in regulation time. The full text:- http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/85158 .
Yes, we know the people have given Pakatan Government the mandate to rule in 5 states and Anwar’s 82 to play the credible opposition in Parliament. We also know that there are pledges to be fulfilled as published and handed out to the rakyat in the election manifestos. We also know that the people who voted them in are saying,”They are the government now and they have to deliver.”
To me though its just 100 out of 1825 days available and also always remember “Rome was not built in a day” I will give them a chance but will you as VOTERS who voted them in, give them that benefit. I’m also not suggesting that you all voted for the opposition just to change the government. Protest Votes or call what you want,don’t cry over spilled milk. In Penang,Kedah,Selangor,Perak and Kelantan the government is Pakatan led while the BN is the opposition. Its reverse in the other BN led government states.
Our economy has suffered and prices have sky rocketed and we should above all be blaming the rogues and speculators of the oil industry. Economist should be able to tell you what is this about the meadowland,scrub and grassland. The profiteering of the oil by the middlemen has shaken the very institution of the commercial world. The speculative scarcity of oil has pushed it well over the limits.
So Malaysians we have to be fair to all whether its Pakatan or BN. Our legislators are doing their utmost in these challenging times for Malaysians. Former Selangor MB Khir Toyo only gave ” 3 out 10″ thats just a bit below the belt. Short but Extra Sweet Today from me Bagi Chance Lah!
