Remove The Need to Fill in Your Race in Forms

Found this article in Facebook which I thought should be spread around to the whole of Malaysia. I can't find the true source of this article but I guess I don't need to. These words speaks on behalf on most of us.

~~ (article starts here)~~

This is a very good article from a younger generation and a great granddaughter of Tunku Abdul Rahman. A very well expressed opinion of how all Malaysians should be treated.


Sharyn completed her Diploma in Advertising from Taylor's College, and then left motherland to pursue her BA degree majoring in Media Studies and Anthropology at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. While waiting for her graduation in May 08, she interned briefly at M&C Saatchi Wellington, a global advertising firm. Upon returning to Malaysia, jobless and relieved of rent payments, Sharyn stumbled upon Wild Asia through The Star which sparked her interest to learn more about nature and environmental causes. Armed with a communications background, Sharyn works on the Wild Asia website and editorial, translating geek terms into laymen language, easily accessed and understood by visitors regardless of their backgrounds, be it scientific, business, the arts or just plain interested.
By The Tunku's Great Granddaughter

This is a great piece. She has all the qualities of her great grandfather. Tunku has reason to be proud of her!

Both my parents are Malay. My mum's heritage includes Chinese, Thai and Arab, while my dad is Minangkabau. Due to my skin colour, I am often mistaken for a Chinese.

I'm happy that I don't have the typical Malay look but I do get annoyed when people call me Ah Moi or ask me straight up "Are you Chinese or Malay"

Like, why does it matter? Before I used to answer "Malay" but now I'm trying to consciously answer Malaysian instead.

There's this incident from primary school that I remember till today. Someone told me that I will be called last during Judgement Day because I don't have a Muslim name. Of course, I was scared then but now that I'm older, I realise that a name is just a name. It doesn't define you as a good or bad person and there is definitely no such thing as a Muslim name. You can be named Rashid or Ali and still be a Christian.

I've heard of the 1Malaysia concept, but I think we don't need to be told to be united. We've come such a long way that it should already be embedded in our hearts and minds that we are united. Unfortunately, you can still see racial discrimination and polarisation. There is still this ethno-centric view that the Malays are the dominant group and their rights must be protected, and non Malays are forever the outsiders.

For the concept to succeed, I think the government should stop with the race politics. It's tiring, really. We grew up with application forms asking us to tick our race. We should stop painting a negative image of the other races, stop thinking about 'us' and 'them' and focus on 'we', 'our' and 'Malaysians'.

No one should be made uncomfortable in their own home. A dear Chinese friend of mine said to me once, "I don't feel patriotic because I am not made to feel like Malaysia is my home, and I don't feel an affinity to China because I have never lived there.

I know some baby Nyonya friends who can trace their lineage back hundreds of years. I'm a fourth generation Malaysian. If I am Bumiputra, why can't they be, too? Clearly I have issues with the term.

I think the main reason why we still can't achieve total unity is because of this 'Malay rights' concept. I'd rather 'Malay rights' be replaced by human rights. So unless we get rid of this Bumiputra status, or reform our views and policies on rights, we will never achieve unity.

For my merdeka wish, I'd like for Malaysians to have more voice, to be respected and heard. I wish that the government would uphold the true essence of parliamentary democracy. I wish for the people to no longer fear and discriminate against each other, to see that we are one and the same.

I wish that Malaysia would truly live up to the tourism spin of Malaysia truly Asia. Malaysians to lead - whatever their ethnic background. Only ONE NATIONALITY MALAYSIAN. No Malays, No Chinese, No Indians - ONLY MALAYSIANS. Choose whatever religion one is comfortable with.

Remember it was Dr M & UMNO who destroyed Tunku's Malaysia.

Project O&O: An Interview With Kenny Mah

project o&o kenny mah

For this blog post, I had posted up a short interview with Kenny Mah about his whole experience during Project O&O. First and foremost, I would like to thank Kenny for spending some time for this session. So here we go!

What makes you join Project O&O in the first place?
Didn't join because I thought it's just any other Facebook competition until Josheen persuaded me to join. So I just submitted a picture and start posting the link on my wall. Then, I browsed through the prizes and I was amazed! To appear in magazines and to have photo taken by Edmund Tham. Wow! That kept my head in the game. haha.

Tell us about your experience on getting ‘LIKES’.
Haha...Ok erm...I started posting the link on my wall, then, my friends who supported me started sharing the links. My cousins, housemates, my course mates, friends from other courses and campuses helped me a lot! They went all out especially during the tight race in preliminary and final round to pull votes for me. I'm very grateful. Also, I felt really bad for posting the link continuously on my wall. Some complained that I spammed their home page by continuously posting on my wall. haha..

What was your feeling when you were announced as the Top 4?I'm very thankful to have my friends and family members supporting me. People whom I have not met in person helped me alot too! Very blessed. I was excited to go back to KL for the photoshoot. Nervous at the same time but mostly overwhelmed by excitement.

Tell us about your experience on the makeover and photoshoot session.
It was awesome. Every single minute of it! I got to meet the organizers, Jon Wong and Leo Isaiah, who are university students as well. After knowing them, I was so inspired by their work and what they have achieved at such a young age. I believe they will make it big someday. Also, we got a chance to meet the other two contestants, Qwen and Andrew. They were nice to hang out with.

Makeover session. I liked the hair color and design they gave me! Nope, no tears, no dramas, just haircuts. haha. Maybe Josheen had. You gotta ask her. Haha. Famous bloggers were there too. I was stunned for a while and didn't know what to do. They were snapping pictures all the time and I was not used to it! So I just looked at the camera and smiled but they ended up calling me a cam-whore =.= haha, but it was really fun with them!

Photoshoot. Tiring. I thought it was going to be a studio shoot but after Edmund briefed us about the concept and showed us the location of the shoot, again, I was excited! Haha.. Josheen and I helped each other in poses the night before the photoshoot. We wanted to fully take advantage of this great opportunity and do our best and of course, inspire Edmund Tham when he was shooting us =) hope we did.

Has winning Project O&O changed your life? Will it?
Project O&O has changed my life in so many ways. I became closer to my friends, I've made new friends, and I have expanded my portfolio. The greatest lesson that i have learnt was the never- giving-up attitude. If we want something so badly, we will do all it takes to get it, and it requires lots of hardwork. But as we all know, hardwork pays off. And I'm glad that it did. Will it change my life? I hope it will =)

And that's it! 5 questions that summarised the whole GREAT experience of joining Project O&O! One again I would like to congratulate Kenny Mah for being one of the FIRST WINNER for Project O&O!

Tips On Surviving College/University/School or Equivalent

I've been thinking lately, mostly because of my current poor time management skills. So, I've been coming up with random thoughts on ways to surving college or at least one semester of it. I'll be compliling all the tips day by day until I can make a book out of it.

Have you ever wanted to turn back time? Or have more ideas for your assignment. Do you want your adrenaline rush to go on forever? Well, it's hard but here are some tips to help you survive at least for a few months.

Disclaimer: Tips offered here might or might not work as some tips will make sense while others are just totally crap.
  1. Never burn out your oil too early in the semester. You may never find another gas station again.
  2. Do not reach your optimum level in your biological graph too soon. Turn your paper horizontally and draw your graph that way.
  3. Stock up on Livita, Red Bull, Tongkat Ali or any other energy drink. However, it will only hold up for an hour at the most for me.
  4. You might want to try coffee too. Coffee Rich, Coffee Kau, Coffee O, Coffee Super Kao Ultraman. Whatever you call it, coffee is one of the most popular drinks taken to keep oneself stay awake but do take note that by drinking too much coffee, you might get constipation.
  5. Block Facebook, YouTube, Movie streaming softwares or anything that might take your attention away from your work.
  6. A better way is to close your eyes while resetting the password to your computer/laptop.
  7. Find out who's the top student in your class, think of him/her always getting higher marks than you. That will keep you going.
  8. Fold up your bed. This will not work if you can sleep anywhere you want.
  9. Study on the table. This works fine for me.
  10. Stop chatting with that pretty girl or cute guy on MSN!
More coming soon!
