Cina Bodoh Sombong?

Dear RPK, I can understand your frustration. But sometimes, you don't seem to be as wise as I thought you were.

In your recent post in Malaysia Today, you said that BN/UMNO will win the coming Tenang by-election because the cina and indian bodoh sombongs will continue to vote for them.

Dear RPK, you can't win over people by calling them names. You have to find out why people choose to vote the way they do.

Whether you like it or not, it is the Malays as a whole who have to wake up if there is to be a change, for they constitute the majority in many constituencies.

And remember, in the last general elections BN/UMNO did not win the majority of the peninsular votes. It was because of the Sabah and Sarawak votes that BN/UMNO were able to form the federal government.

Obviously a substantial number of Malays voters in peninsular Malaysia must have voted for BN/UMNO in the last GE, otherwise even with the Sabah and Sarawak votes BN/UMNO would not have the numbers to form the federal government.

Are the Malays bodoh sombong also? I think not. They must have had their own reasons, whatever these might be, to have had voted for BN/UMNO.

We have to find out the reasons and try to convince the voters why we need a change and not take the easy way out by calling them names.

So, RPK, dam your frustrations and soldier on.

Battles are not won or lost overnight.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
