White Tiger Roars in 2010

The White Tiger roars.

15 days of Chinese New Year celebration ended yesterday. I love this year’s Chinese New Year celebration. I simply enjoy myself to the fullest and leave all work and worries behind. Yes, that’s the reason, if you asked me.

On the way back from Sunday mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral yesterday, my dad and I were stuck in a traffic jam for about half an hour. The Chap Goh Mei parade route bypassed the road we used. We were lucky because we’re on motorbike. We drove till the front and enjoyed the parade. I pity those who drove car and stuck behind the jam. They  missed the show and wasted half an hour’s time for nothing.

The parade. Interesting and spooky parade. I must say that it looked like a Halloween parade to me. All the Chinese deities were ‘present’. Tua Pek Kong, Kwang Kung, Kwan Yin, The Eight Deities (Crossing The Sea), The Beggar, and lots more. You also get to see live performance how they struck though the big long needle like iron across their cheek.

Interesting but nothing was more interesting than to see a young lady, who was enjoying the parade, held a rosary and a camera at the same time. I came out with 2 presumptions. First, she worried that she might be possessed or accidentally caught the photo of devil. By holding a rosary in her hand, she will be safe from the wandering evil spirits.

Second, she could had thought that a combined rosary-camera will enable her to snap some supernatural photo of the ‘deities’. Nonetheless, it was quite a smart move. I must do the same too next time. I can’t sleep well last night after I went back from the parade. Could be some devil followed me back and disturbed me while I was sleeping.

The rich-in-culture parade triggered something in my mind – 1 Malaysia. As far as I remember, even  the strongest bond of 2 become 1 are sometimes ended up with divorce. The 5 become 1 is similarly as fragile. Why then, someone want to come out with this lame idea of making all of us ONE? Won’t it better leave us along, let us get along well with each other, Cina sama Melayu sama India same Iban same kaum-kaum lain and at the same time get rid of all Alongs? LAME LAME LAME.

We all all unique. The only oneness we can be is to live together harmoniously. But then hoh, the politician dogs just can’t leave all the races in peace. They love to inflict hate among us, so that they can be like the penjajah British, manipulate and control all of us for their own benefit.

Oh, by the way, I feel that Sarikei No. 1 is doing even a better job than any of them. My first encounter with him was when I was in a bus, on the way from Sibu to Sarikei. He was wearing a red batik and a hat. On his hat, it is written ‘No. 1’. People called him Sarikei No. 1.

You would be surprised when you heard him complaint about how the town’s development was slack behind, the drain was clogged, and his suggestions to develop the town. Many other Number Ones, just like Sarikei No. 1, lauded how they want to develop Sarawak (or any town or city) and how they want to help the people here. Talk was intense before election but died soon after election. At least Sarikei No. 1 is far better than the other Number Ones, at least he do not inflict hate among the races nor waste tax payer’s money. Oh, by the way, I hope Malaysia No. 1’s tea break with his Facebook fans are not going to use our tax payers money.  🙂

White Tiger roars again.

I feel that Malaysia had changed a lot. When I was still young, I feel safe living in this country. We went along well with our friends from different ethnics and races. When something bad happened, we feel safe to dial 999. We believed that court is a place of justice and jail is a place for bad people.

Today, these values had eroded away.

People died in police custody. When your four wheel drive was stolen, you have to buy it back from the syndicate.  Sometimes our Ah Sir become the middle man! Walau! While you are waiting for decades for the country to give you your Mycard, you saw the dark skinned people from the islands nearby Sabah get their free Mycard during election time. You read in news how the court decisions were masterminded. You read in news how the states owned by oppositions were purposely denied of their rights.

You see how the ingenious people inside Sarawak and Sabah are so easily manipulated (They are not stupid but they are also not clever. They are just cheated) . You see how EC spend tax payers money to buy the ink for election which they never used. You see how they ‘fly in’ the ridiculous votes from unknown source to help their cronies to win the election. You read in news how they play around with the ‘sodomize’ thingy. The list goes on.

White Tiger continues to roar. ROAARRRR~

    2010 is the year of the metal Tiger. Metal is one of the five Taoist elements metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. Since metal’s color is white, it is also called White Tiger.
    Now you reminds me of our yellowish tiger which can be seen on our Constitution of Malaysia logo and Maybank. It is sad though to know the fact that the 2 tigers that protects our constitution had died after the evil ministers took over this country. I wonder what animal look after our constitution now.
