Essentially this is a Coke Slurpee. Way too good on a hot day.
Relax Malaysia will be fine. You will be fine. We all will be fine. It is fine if you want to discuss policies and ideas, but lets stop with the fear mongering shall we?
Doing it to yourself is one thing, but harming others is far worse. Kids are an especially vulnerable group and are easily affected by poor decision making by adults. Your actions speak louder than words. Be considerate.
Sorry about the GIF. It's getting late, I'm too tired and this was too funny. :)
I think that it is a little too simplistic to accuse this member of Parliament on being race centric. The issue at hand here is that many Malaysians feel exactly this way.
We cannot expect those with conservative ideologies to change their minds overnight. Many of those who hold on to any conservative dogma will argue ferociously and inconsiderately ideas that will sustain the traditions of old.
I think it is important to remember that politicians only become vocal when they are under pressure from their constituency. They are not thought leaders in any way. On the pedestal they will preach things that will allow themselves to be re-elected in the next election.
If any member of Parliament repeatedly wins reelection, the question that we have to ask ourselves is: why dosuch ideas resonate loudly to some in Malaysia. Then we have to decide how do we meet these people, our brethren, half way. It will take some sacrifices from both sides, a willingness to sacrifice first always fires up the other side to do the same.
Any politician who dares speak out against his electorate is a foolish but brave man indeed. We can all hail his bravery when he agrees with us, but a man without a pedestal is a man with no voice.
Even though you had always wanted to be out in front, was there ever a point where you valued your anonymity?
Yeah, I held on to the last moments of it. I knew when I wrote the line “light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson” [from the song “Slow Jamz"] I was going to be a big star. At the time, they used to have the Virgin music [stores], and I would go there and just go up the escalator and say to myself, “I’m soaking in these last moments of anonymity.” I knew I was going to make it this far; I knew that this was going to happen.

This is the kind of song I wish Ellie Goulding would do. Beautiful.
