At Least

As usual, reading SI's Blog is inspiring, she's smart and brings up good issues, while yours sincerely (almost) never reads the newspaper and prefers to keep things frivolous and 'blond' as my bestfriend would say.

So, SI posted up a very thought provoking article about racism in her Blog. And i personally know a Chinese girl who was denied the JPA scholarship although she scored 11A1s, was the vice head-prefect (or maybe she was the head... ) and she was active in sports-- first place for the Merentas Desa thing...

The article also says "I read about a poor Indian lady having to pay full price for a low-cost house after being dispossessed from a plantation, whilst Malay millionaires demand their 10% bumiputera discount when buying RM2 million bungalows in a gated community."

But at least, unlike Indonesia, the Indians and Chinese don't have to have a Muslim name. At least i can still wear spaghetti straps. At least i can still hold hands with E in public. At least the non-bumiputras have the freedom to choose their religion.

Actually, EVERYONE should have the freedom to choose his or her religion...
