In my last posing titles as per above I received a comment from anonymous as follows and my reply followed.
it's so easy for a 'Malay' like you to comment on what's going on in Malaysia. you're now probably an Australian citizen marred to an Australian Madame living in comfort. We don't need people like you who was educated and given scholarships by the government but now that you're more educated lashes accusations on what happens in the country. the only 'change' you want is when the Malays lose everything. and then you will clap your hands (from your living room in Australia)and say Malaysia has come of age! why do Malays like you forget yourselves when you have achieved whatever you wanted to achieve?? There are many others like you who station themselves overseas and take a snipe at the malays u claim yourself to be. who are you? what are you?
- I am not an australian Citizen
- I am not living in comfort with money I took from Malaysia. I came to Australia 30 years ago landing in Perth with Aud $120( One hundred and twenty dollars only) in my pocket and not knowing anybody in Perth.
- Yes I married a Greek Australian in London(not in Australia) and she paid for the wedding ring and my trousers for the wedding - her father is a butcher - not a rich businessman.
- No I did not get any scholarships. All I have is an A level - and my father sent me to London to study with his own hard earned money - and I let him down by not studying and instead got married at 21 without a ringgit to my name.
So I am not educated (unless you consider an A level highly educated) and I do not station myself overseas but I decided 30 years ago that I do not want to live in Malaysian and that i prefer to stay in Australia - even if i have to earn a living as a waiter. So as a Malay I have nothing to lose in malaysia because I have nothing in Malaysia - but I do care when we have an UMNO that is corrupt and greedy and all people, regardless of race, suffer. If you read my blog you will have a better understanding of who I am - then feel free to say what you want of me - I just came back to Australia early last year after staying in KL for the last nine years - thinking that things will change for the better - it did not - so I came back to Adelaide - arriving at the airport in adelaide with less the Ringgit 500 (Lima ratus ringgit) in my pocket. Who am I? I just want to live my own life without kowtowing to any bloody politicians - and if you want to know if I know any politicians - yes plenty. The late Endon (Pak Lah's late wife) is my first cousin - her father and my late mother are brothers and sisters. And if you read my blog you will also know that my younger brother was Mahathirs personal doctor for many many years. So I am a Malay with all the right connections but i choose to live in Australia over 30 years ago. Does that answer all your questions.
My comments: I do not mind getting fair comment from anybody who takes the trouble of reading what I write because in writing I am putting my thoughts and ideas out there for everybody. But I do get upset when people who do not know me personally make unfounded remarks about who I am, what I do etc etc – what my agenda is for doing all this. One thing drive me to do this – my brains. If my brains say something is not right and if I can do something about it – I try. What is in my blog – not only the political comments but everything else in it is ME – I am no politician, I started my business life in Malaysia as the first malay to sell burgers from a stall in Penang – with my Greek wife alongside me helping out – she is still with me in my life and we will have it no other way.
