Around the mid 19th century, circa 1860, Queen Victoria proclaimed to all her royal subjects:

... We disclaim alike the right and the desire to impose Our convictions on any of Our subjects. We declare it to be Our royal will and pleasure that none be in anywise favoured, none molested or disquieted by reason of their religious faith or observances, but that all shall enjoy the equal and impartial protection of the law... And it is Our further will that, so far as may be, Our subjects, of whatever race or creed, be freely and impartially admitted to offices in Our service, the duties of which they may be qualified by their education, ability and integrity, duly to discharge.

The bold letters are mine for emphasis.

I pray for the day when our PM or the King make a similar proclamation to all Malaysians. I hope I am still around then.

We can't wait for 2 General Elections to see it happen, we need to make it happen soon...

We have waited so long and wasted so much time and we just cannot wait no more. We as citizens and voters need to play our own little role and make it happen.

60% of eligible voters in the country are not registered as voters. All it takes is to bring your myKad to the nearest Post Office and fill up a simple form, please do it. Please get your family members and friends to play their role.

Yes, we cannot wait for it to happen, we need to make it happen! For the sake of our children and our children's children....

Also saw a booth in C4 day before...that's Sunday...also POS is open Saturday till late.

Well...here's a way everyone can play a part.....just check with all your friends and family, esp the young ones....if they haven't registered....then make a date...offer them lunch or tea, on condition all go together and register.

A great way to build your relationships and do your part for country and have fun at the same time. And they in return do the same to their friends,...and so on....

Any MLM guys here to help with the stats on dynamic duplication...you know...1 get 2, then the 2 get 2 each making it 4 and so forth.

In fact the PKR guys should start a campaign of sorts....good PR for them.
OK...doing my part this weekend.

kuma, maybe you can initiate a campaign to register new voters. You can call it "New Voters for Change."

A lot of our malaise is due to the "tidak apa" attitude of a lot of our citizens. Time to wake these people up on the need for change..for the better.

Maybe for now, but what would the future hold? The crystal ball say Vote for Change. It has to be started with registering citizen as voters. I remember talking to someone last week when we dabble on the Teoh case. The older gentleman said what to do, have to bear with it. I replied why should we?Sometimes it is not for us but for our future like the kids and so on....
Otherwise, how many people would be thrown off the building and how many people would be buying more 24 million building?

In fact with this forum alone, I feel that the change has been evident
because it showed people do respond though they might not be marching in the 1st August. Otherwise, they would be surfing the nets for other sources for entainment instead of spendinding time reading and postings.

This can be changed and it can be possible if people can registered and vote sensibily.

The bubble would be burst with vote for the change.

During the last elections i drove 450 km to go back to vote and I went back the next day after I voted. My one vote may not have mattered but I was happy with the thought that the candidate that i did not vote for did not get elected and is now mired in deep $hit with the pkfz scandal. Whereever I am i will come back to vote even if it is at great personal expense. Just do it.

Let me salute you for being so responsible to vote as a citizen.
If only our MPs are doing what you have done, we wouldnt have them absent or sleeping from the Dewan.
Either the govt is seriously promoting 1 Malaysia or 0 Malaysia, you are right about the rakyat decide whether they are just saying it or doing it.
If we are tidak apa, they think we still live on the trees.

Unfortunately, what you said is very true. The reason why we are in the cesspool is we do it to ourself. BS is right, we all cakap tak serupa bikin. You can even see that in this forum some selfish attitude that only take but won't share or give...

E.g. how do I get this done ah? How is this school ah? How is that school ah? How to take a bus from here to there ah?... they can't even be bothered to find out and share but rather just want to be spoonfed by others...

I get sick of these and thats why I sometimes get irritated and get banana'ed for speaking out...

That is the right attitude. Now, to duplicate it into many others...

Every forumer is right, one way or another. However, I am thankful that an awakening has taken place in Malaysia. 10 years ago, we cannot imagine the BN without their 2/3 majority, but it happened. 5 years ago, no one will ever imagine the opposition controlling Penang and Selangor, but it happened. Can we not think positively? Can we not hope for Martin Luther King's dream to come true in Malaysia? Excerpt of his famous speech is below. We can substitute America with Malaysia,

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.

Banana is one of the best food. It is nutrious as it can prevent hypertension, improve vision , acts as antacid, and good for constipation. Though it can reduce kidney cancer with moderate intake, try not too eat too much as it can be revesible.

Anyway, goreng pisang is bad with recycled oil, but eaten whole or light sauteed and served with vanilla essence ice cream, it can be delightful.

Had been given a banana myself recently, taste horrible unlike the banana deserts I served to my customers.

Apart from politic and anti-establishment talk, derail the thread, I'm now seriously using more of olive oil than our palm oil for any frying or other dishes. I think I'm NOT going to support anymore local cooking oil. Olive oil is better (despite not suitable for high heat frying). Less fries too. And eat LESS RICE, have rolled OATS for dinner. No more Nasi Lemak!.. Other rice meals to reduce in due course too. Ok..full stop.

You know or not, I fry my hoki fish fingers, the aroma can go upstairs rooms. I fry fish fingers and an egg with Olive oil, it tastes WORLDS better and the aroma doesn't get up to the upstairs. :)
