Courteous and Honorable

Recently, a friend asked in Twitter if anyone could recite the Rukun Negara.
I could.
She calls me patriotic.

For 11 years of my schooling life, I recite it every Monday morning during the school assembly. How can one not memorized it for life?

After the GE13, with everything said and done, and the, what I can only described as “madness” happening thereafter, I cannot stop thinking about the Rukun Negara.  The unbelievable racial statements, the accusations, conspiracy theories, etc from BOTH sides are heartbreaking. More so when it was made by people I personally know.  

I understand the tension. I really do.

However, we Malaysians are well known as the multi-racial country living in peace and harmony as one nation. Heck, we even boast about this fact out loud. Other countries respected and commended us for our unity.

And I am always so proud to share this with all the foreign people I meet at work.
I am proud to be Malaysian.

Unfortunately, our “insensitivity” and our ikut perasaan blogs, comments, statuses and tweets, may fracture this unique and beautiful bond.

Kesopanan & Kesusilaan.
We are a courteous and honorable nation.
So, let’s keep it that way. 

The GE process went smoothly. I was nervous for nothing! (^_^)
