Some things people get. Some things come naturally to certain people. Labels: malaysia
These things are a gift, a perspective. You cannot learn a new perspective. You cannot wake up one day and decide you want a new perspective. You have to experience it.
Yasmin Ahmad obviously had both the experience and the gift to share it without shoving it in your face.
This one though....he obviously doesn't quite get it. Yet.
Step #1 : Welcome to 1Malaysia.
Step #2: Please segregate yourselves right now into orderly groups and click the button according to your groups. Thank you.
I say 'YET' because I hope he will get it eventually.
I don't care about the politics, but I do want him to 'get it' for our sakes. It is one thing promoting a togetherness. It is totally a different thing blatantly segregating people according to the races right from the beginning.
say IF the site doesn't let us choose any languages?
if its only read-able in BM, we can all imagine whats the outcome..
if its only read-able in chinese, same thing
if its only read-able in English (i know its impossible but just IF), the site will get critics as well
my 2 cents
This one just screams at your face.
It's not that they do not know this fact, somehow they didn't do enough auditing before launching the website..
