Hold Your Horses : Not So Fast, Will The PH Government Turn Out To Be The Real Changer?

Don't know about you.

The euphoria of consigning the toxic BN regime to the dustbin of history may still be strong, but it is time to take stock of whether the new Pakatan Harapan government will turn out to be the hope Bolehland had voted for.

Personally, I have no illusions that things will really change. There will be some cosmetic adjustments here and there which though welcome, won't really get to the root of what will make Bolehland truly free and great.

The reality of the demographics and religion will stand in the way. As it is, we don't see anyone in power bold enough to take the bull by its horns.

It is always politically expedient and safer not to rock the boat. PH is still a very disparate lot. Racial and religious considerations still saddle the lot, however much we might like to pretend and console ourselves.

What do you do when a self-appointed vigilante group forced a shop proprietor to empty a fridge of alcoholic drinks because they said it offended their religious feelings?

No one in power came out to categorically condemn their action as unacceptable!

No one in power was bothered to wade in to say to no to the Isis type vigilantism.

Not even the DAP! Now that they are part of the administration?

Only the MCA, now that they are out of the equation, murmured a protest against the new PH government!

Hahaha.....What a tragi-comedy!

Only one brave activist did speak out!

And she had to ask why all the Muslim MPs and ministers were so bo hood!

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...
