Is Malaysia Colonised By Umno?

We had been colonised by the British before, although of course Umno is not happy if you said so.

Semantics aside, everyone knows that we were not the masters of our own fate during the British administration.

If Umno thought that we were then, well, let's just leave the dinosaur to their own deception.

Funny thing, if were our own masters during the British administration, why had Umno to head off to London to seek independence?

Today, we are also not masters of our own fate.

Umno is the master.

It is the one who sets the course and fate of the nation, being the taiko (big brother) of the Bn coalition that has continuously been running the country for more than half a century since independence in 1957.

The rest of the coalition partners are just mosquito parties making up the numbers to present a facade of a multiracial administration.

And the course set by Umno for the country is not a pretty one.

Umno often uses the politics of race and religion, and sometimes the monarchy, to scare the Malays into backing them and to stay in power.

Fortunately, the Malays are beginning to see through Umno's ruse and are no longer so easily taken in.

Which explains why the dinosaur is becoming more and more irrational in their bankrupt, desperate survival politics of race and religion.

It uses, or rather abuses, many say, the NEP and conducts business behind the protective and perfidious skirt of the Official Secret Act (OSA) to enrich their cronies and families in the name of helping the Malays.

Even the passing marks for Math and Science are considered official state secrets. That's how cute we have become under the Umno administration.

Institutions and agencies of state are increasingly hijacked, that things move only where the dinosaur wants them to.

The sovereign debt balloons out of control and we continue to spend more than we earn each year, for 16 consecutive years already, and yet expect the economy to cruise nicely along with nary a care in the world, believing that our oil resources will just keep the country afloat come what may.

This, in the midst of a downgrading of our credit rating by the Fitch rating agency.

The Najib administration seems to have little or no idea of financial and/or fiscal prudence and responsibility.

Malaysia can look forward to more of Najib's reckless "lu tolong gua, gua tolong lu" ("you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours") economy, that is. if he survives the upcoming Umno General Assembly.

(Even if Najib does not, whoever takes over the Umno presidency and therefore the premiership of the country, is not expected to be any better)

Not a day passes by that one outsourced goon or another would not try to pit one race against the other or one religion against the other and yet gets away Scot free, while the poor victims of their shenanigans get hauled up quickly by the authorities.

And Najib and Umno keep a convenient and an (in) elegant silence about it all.

The crime scene here becomes ever worrying and we are being told that is the fault of our fevered perception.

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...
