The situation of the outbreak in Malaysia as at 13th July 2020 is firmly under the control and yet we must continue our vigilant and keep the number of cases under close monitoring. Graph source: Stat News
Seriously, the Pakatan Harapan government needs to go to a corner and reflect on its decision when it comes to bringing former ISIS terrorists and their radicalised families back to Malaysia. Why we are rolling out the red carpet to these terrorists? Infographic source: ISIS

Back in May 2018, something historical happened – BN who held power for past 61 years lost the general elections – the story detailed in Part 1 & Part 2. And with that, the old Malaysia died and a “New Malaysia” or in Bahasa, “Malaysia Baru” was born. Image source: Wikipedia
However since then, the New Malaysia like a newborn baby have been struggling to stand up, been making too many silly mistakes, edging dangerously on race & religion related matters and yet to show any positive results.
On a daily basis, there is no lack of news of power tussles, accusations that one political party is leading another, race & religion is under threat and the proposed succession plan not materialising.

But it does not mean I have not been keeping up with the snippets – unfortunately, there are more depressing news snippets on where this country is heading. In fact, this snippet post and the title had been on a draft mode for months and had undergone several edits so don’t be surprised if you are reading very old snippets here.

(Thumbs up as a sign of thank you instead of the middle finger is always welcomed on a stressful drive home, more so after doing a good deed instead of being a nuisance to fellow road users. Image source: Pinterest)
How many times you have said “Thank You” to someone else today, two days ago, a week ago or a month ago?
One main concern whenever we enter a restaurant is how good is the food. The other is whether the restaurant is clean or not and how good is the service. Image source: Wide Open Eat
(Bangsa Malaysia also means a nation of people who speak in one voice. Whilst we are so against racism in Malaysia, obviously, we are not angels ourselves and thus the need for one united people is even critical now. Image source: Mob’s Crib)
(Long before the illusive 1Malaysia came along, Malaysia has already been a multi-racial, multicultural country. We had our differences but we don’t see our fellow Malaysians as threats. Image source: http://ajinbgagah.blogspot.com)
