Do Bolehland Leaders Need Reminders?

The easy part is fixing the economy and even the trillion ringgit sovereign debt.

The difficult part is fulfilling the reformist agenda.

Shouting reformasi and doing reformations are two different animals. One needs only the vocal chords, the other needs not only strength of conviction but also guts and stamina to stay the course.

The rakyat have voted for change by kicking out the old regime despite all the odds. That says a lot about their aspirations - no more of the same old divisive, corrupt, oppressive politics and shenanigans!

The Pakatan Harapan leaders must show that they mean business! They should not pander to narrow political, racial, religious or palace interest.

The old regime's tired call of untuk bangsa, agama dan raja2 should be retired for untuk negara, rakyat dan kesejahteraan semua.

Everyone should help out. No one should be above criticism or being called out where justified. Or even not.

The people should be given space to voice their concerns and have their say without having to look over the shoulder for fear of being hauled up for speaking their minds.

Corruption and abuse of power must be dealt with without fear or favour and the culprits be made to account for their actions in the court of law.

Any one, be he the prime minister himself or a ruler, or anyone else, who has abused his position or power must be able to face up to criticisms. Or face the law.

That is the only way to ensure that Bolehland goes down not the slippery road to a failed state.

To ensure that demands lots of guts, stamina and strength of conviction of the leaders.

Populist and half measures just to appease will only fail in the end.

Do the Bolehalnd leaders need reminders?

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...
