it is indeed a horrible, horrible day, as i have predicted this morning.
i am now down with a fever.
i've lost the dearest thing i've ever own; which have no sign of recovery.
and i'm tired.
to make things worse, results will be out tomorrow.

on the way to a colour blind malaysia.
colour blind here, means, the unbiased citizen. who doesnt discriminate, and integrated at a level of harmony.
that was the topic of a talk i attended last night, with hanis, lya and fariza, and kak yana. it is really interesting, and i do have to applaud the speakers: kak ema, nico pang, farhan, and hari. they are all good speakers, and have made the whole thing really interesting.
this kind of topic seldom being addressed publicly the way we did it last night. because in malaysia, this kind of topic, is somekind a taboo - you know its there, but you shall not talk about it. if you do, and eventually you will disagree with whatever the government do, or say, or preach, and then, you'll be banned. full stop.
all in all, i can come to a conclusion that, malaysia is not yet at that level of integration that we think we are, or try telling others that we are. there are still many racists, who doesnt realised that they are racist. eventhough our level of racism is not as bad as it is here in the uk, but we do have them somewhere. living in a multiracial country do need a lot of compromise, but do mind, we need to know to what extend do we need to compromise -- as long as we dont forget the limits set by our religion.
some might be reading this and say, i go along well with the chinese, or the indians, etc, so, good for you. but there are still people out there who doesnt. who are still prejudice to other races, and unwilling to accept them. myself, being a minority in malaysia, i do sometimes feel it, eventhough people are not really showing it.
some might say, its what the government implements that have the largest effect on the level of racism in our country. some might say, its what they teach you at home that has the greater effect. well, it is all true. whichever level that can allow us to contribute to this matter, then, thats where WE should start.
finally, they said they dont mix around, because they are not given the opportunity to do so. but to be honest, we are given the opportunity to integrate, but we are always too scared to make a move, and come out of our bubble, and try.
just something to ponder.
