Discrimination in the private sector is everywhere. Even the Chinese businessman who is just starting gets discriminated against more established ones, unless he has a mentor to back him up.

As for career interviews, it is best to get a recommendation first. If I am using my own money, it is my right to choose whom I want - even to the extent of discrimination. Why would I want to hire someone that I cannot have lunch with, work with or converse with?

The BN government on the other hand is discriminating against the non-malays not with the malay money, but with probably the Chinese money as the latter pay the bulk of income tax collected in the country. That we are against.

Under the Asean scholarship scheme, Singapore offers about 60 pct of its pre-university places to Mainland China students. The rest is given to Indians, Malaysians, and even to Vietnamese.

Then they take care of the pre-university students needs with counseling, dinner, interview with GLCs - everything to make the students stay and become Singaporean ambassadors, if not Singaporean citizens.

What do we do in Malaysia? We turn down the straight A students for scholarships. We tell many of them they are not wanted. We tell them to sit for the STPM, which is mile more difficult than the government-sponsored matriculation system. Then when they get straight As, we tell many of them we can't offer them courses of their choice.

We lost it more than 20 years ago, not just yesterday. We lost it when Mahathir decided to switch from the English education system to the Bahasa Melayu education system. We lost it when the authorities decided to mess around with qualifications and "kulitfications".

It is a known fact that the Chinese is leading the scientific research. More Chinese is writing journals (research papers) now than before. How can we compete with them when we are not writing enough papers!

It is stupid considering that the Singapore government is giving the living allowance or willing to provide scholarship to study there, yet in our own backyard, Malaysia doesn't seem to appreciate us who work full time yet get nothing.

All the government know about brain drain is accused people of not patriotic but did they know how hard we are suffering, and how near the heaven is (Singapore)! Of course BN will not take action on it because there are still some countries behind us, we are not the worst, yet.

If you were to pour billions into our universities, we will still get third rate products. Money is one thing. Good manager and personnel is another.

If we continually appoint, promote and recruit professors according to race, only God can help us improve our ranking. If and only if we dare change our policy by doing away all this racial thinking, we can think of ranking top 100 in the world.

Come on. Please do not compare to China Taiwan. You should take Congo, Sudan or Zimbabwe. We are much more advanced and superior than those in education. They can't produce anything - at least we still can produce 50k graduates without works after finishing their studies in top local universities.

Being a Malaysian, I realise that many of my countrymen don't take kindly to comparison with our friendly neighbour. In fact, when my Singaporean friends laugh at me about how corrupt, how incompetent and lately, over the faux pas of our politicians, I'd ask them to keep quiet.

But deep down, what hurt more is knows that they are right. If we don't snap out of our myopic mentality, we will forever be laughing stock and be left behind.

I stressed the last paragraph because I understand that many Malaysians don't like being compared to Singapore.

And I want to make it clear that I am not trying to glorify others achievements, but trying to stress the kind of anguish I felt when I look at this country, so much in common with my own, with historical and cultural ties that stretched back to the Johor Sultan, and with far less resources than we do, having overtaken us by leaps and bounds, while we continue to be saddled with myopic visions and concentrate on petty things……….like banning shorts in residential colleges.

Why?………..the government is deaf of non-malays opinion and outcry. You must join Umno and cry there. The government policy is to create "Bangsa Umno" instead of Bangsa Malaysia.

Why are we all so worked up over a million heist when hundreds of millions heist are happening at the GLCs by our elected representatives and their cronies!

I also don't understand why bring this matter up when hundreds of millions are stolen in broad daylight. Maybe for talk purpose. People here have learned that they don't have to work so hard to get anything. There are a lot of shortcuts here. So people are using them.

It is time our Malaysia government do something to stop the rot.

Let me sum up here:

When neighbour people fart, they will say "excuse me, pardon me". When Malaysians fart, they will say "not me, not me".

How can we learn with this attitude?

Please allow me to clarify that I am referring to Malaysians in general and not you in particular. I know how you feel when your Singapore friends talked about corruption and unscrupulous politician in Malaysia.

I would not expect you to defend the country. You would have put yourself into a more difficult position. You can actually do nothing except to feel the shame. I would just laugh it off with them. Well, don't take it upon yourself. After all, there is no yes comparison with our neighbour.

It would be so much easier for me to get a Singapore PR after I graduated and work in a place where my abilities are appreciated for what it is, and not having the politics of my skin to work against me.

Yet I have every intention of coming back and contribute in my own ways, even if I had to start from scratch after working off my bond in Singapore. So yes, I absolutely believe that there can be improvements, and it is what we all have to work for.

There are push and pull factors involved. An emigrant is both trying to escape something and advance towards another thing at the same time. For instance, a scientist who cannot flourish in his own country will want to go somewhere where his expertise is appreciated. Perhaps he finds the anti-intellectualism in his milieu too stifling (unfortunately, this is very true in Malaysia), or the government of the day too partial when it comes to resource allocation.

You see, the major problem with a not insignificant number of Malaysians is that there is a lot of false pride around. This is a vestige of Mahathirianism. Small achievements are overblown so as to build up national pride. It is Malaysia Boleh this and Malaysia Boleh that.

Anyway, I say cheer the emigrants on. Let people do what they want with their lives - they should not be beholden to the country. Do not blame their lack of patriotism for not staying - patriotism is poor persuasion.

Actually, the average number of Malaysians who get into Harvard for undergrad studies per year is 1.

It is quite easy to increase the number of Malaysians entering Harvard - ask one of our brilliant ministers to wield his keris in front of Harvard, demanding at least 100 students to be accepted into Harvard each year……….

Just my 2 cents. Hahaha……….let us hope for a better education in Malaysia.

Well, there was Professor KS Jomo who attended Harvard for his MBA (prior to that he was at Yale). He came back to teach but look what happened to him……….

We hope for less intervention from government in tertiary education, less oppression on Chinese schools in Malaysia……….[Hisham: "Nah, dream on!"]

Was joking actually on the keris wielding thingy - these people can't even take up an assistant post if they are not in the government……….ok, I know I am exaggerating.

Ancient Chinese wisdom says that officials have two mouths. This is still true today.

It always surprise me that by the behaviour of Malaysia politicians. It irks even more that people think that the link is between the behaviour of our politicians and our children.

The problem begins first and foremost with policy. At the gist of it is the unmeritocracy and politicisation of the educational system.

The effect of politicisation is unchecked because we do not have free speech in this country. At the core of issues are the hegemonic policies of the Umno.

The problem is that it is very hard to do and takes a lot of effort, which our small-minded leaders are not up to the challenge.

Political leaders are keep falling into vain traps to believe that they can change of students and young minds with their policies and power.

Fine during undergraduate years, it is rather obvious that there is little racial integration within the university. Why? Because the students know certain races have certain advantages on the others. Yet most of them do not voice out, lest they will be 'blacklisted'.

Freedom is suppressed to the fullest extent.

The truth is that history has suggest that it is a vain attempt that only bring adverse result - in the long run the best way to educate and ensure good values in our children is to expose them to issues and debate them openly when it comes up.

Education systems are so different. Who is to judge what is worthy and what is not worthy? So, think smart, unless you have a deep pocket to support your education overseas.

To change all these, we need to change the current environment and government policies. Can we? Otherwise, we will continue to talk till the cow comes home.

I have mentioned in my posts that NEP is not constitutional and has extended its period beyond what has been planned to be necessary. 20 years has passed, but greed has set in.

Greed to benefits only a few and not the poverty stricken Malaysians. An affirmative policy that helps the poor regardless of race is needed.

I have also demonstrated that India has Muslim presidents despite being 80% Hindu. Similarly, in Australia there are Asian mayors. In America, New Zealand and many countries, top positions are for the capable not based on race or religion.

Now, let us not sweep all discussions under the carpet with the term Article 153.

Article 153 should always be interpreted together with Article 8 that all Malaysians must be dealt with fairly and treated as equal.

While the positions of the malays are respected and their heritage not forgotten, they are not meant to be the guardians of toll and wealth and collectors that usurp all money, oil and some natural resources till it is left dry.

It is important we publish this, so we do not just shiver when we hear Article 153, and begin to think of greedy ways to gain from another or use it to put down another races.

Article 153:

(1) The quotas reserved must be reasonable and the reservation of licences and permits for malays and natives must be of such proportion as may be deemed reasonable.

(2) The scope of the reservation of quotas is only with respect to positions in public service, scholarships, and other similar educational or training privileges accorded or given by the federal government.

(3) The special reservation of quotas must not affect the rights of other communities.

Apart from the provisions allowed under the abovementioned Article 153, all citizens of Malaysia must be treated as equal. This is clearly provided for under Article 8 of the Federal Constitution.

Article 8:

(1) All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law.

(2) No public authority shall discriminate against any person on the ground that he is resident or carrying on business in any part of the federation outside the jurisdiction of the authority.

(3) There shall be no discrimination in favour of any person on the ground that he is a subject of the ruler of any state.

NEP: It will destroy the Malaysia.

We must demand these changes and the power is with the people. We must go against a corrupt government, a fanatic religious social structure and not accept crime rates and the NEP. We need to change Malaysia and the social structures that are not relevant for Malaysia anymore.

We need to free ourselves from these chains that make our lives not worth living.

If you read our Malaysia school history textbook - you will realised there are a few changes in the history. Did the malays change the history again?

How can you change the history to make our country and malays sound like so marvelous and smart but the fact is not, and insert the wrong information to our next generation? If there was a mistake made by your ancestor, admit it!

Going back to the history of Thailand and Malaysia, prior to the western colonialism era, the entire Malaysia was part of Thailand; the same way Laos was part of Thailand. Back then, the fittest survived and ruled. There were no such things as international laws.

During the western colonialism period, the British and the French came along. In order to maintain its independence, the Kingdom of Thailand was compelled to give up the currently called Malaysia part of Thailand to the British, and the currently called Laos to the French.

After that, the official boundaries that separated Thailand from Malaysia and Laos were drawn and recognized today by the United Nations.

So, the history textbook in school never really started from the root but started from whoever he is, the Parameswara who seems no one never sure how he looks like, or whatsoever migrant from Indonesia, and after that, all the malays thought this land called Malaysia and call them bumis and need the special rights for everything, and claim from everything.

Arrogant, bully, chauvinist, ego, empty brained Umno - who barely bloody hypocrite.

The land is simply not belongs to you naive malay, even we not to force, already a lot of Malaysians gone to other countries to find better living, especially the talented ones, our country not appreciate smart talented Chinese and Indians, other countries like America, Australia and England they do, that is why their country is so multi-cultured yet advanced, who is the lose one?

We are Malaysians, but then all these years are we really treated equally? We all know about that issues, just that you guys don't want to face it, try to hide it or push people out of the country, well……….no need to force all those talented people are already outside the country, let us see all those well-known Malaysians who work overseas:

The very Hollywood star, Michelle Yeoh in US. The very popular violinist, Andrew Au Yong in German. The very smart author, Sandra Chen in Australia. The very talented Indian chef, Sangkar in Paris.

Where are they from? Malaysia. Where are they now? Other people's countries - and many many more medical practitioners are overseas as well. Who is left over in Malaysia? Those lose ones. We no need to force, we choose to leave.

I wish to point out that the Orang Asli, not the malays, are the original inhabitants of Malaysia. Most of the malay Malaysians came from Sumatra and other parts of Indonesia. They only migrated here much earlier than the Chinese and Indian Malaysians. It does not mean they deserve privileges or rights just because they were the pioneer immigrants.

It is true that there have been abuses under the name of malay special rights and it is the duty of the malays in particular, and all Malaysians in general, to stop it so that the rightful malays get their rights, and the non-malays get their rights as citizens of this country.

It is a sad thing to say, but I do believe the main thing that is holding back malays is not the Chinese or the Indians, but the malays themselves. That is why Badawi and Mahathir have been quoted as telling to throw away crutches and work hard to face the challenges of globalisation.

The malay and others of the same mind should learn to stand on their own feet rather than claim for special privileges and rights. The world is becoming globalised and if they don't change their attitude, they will only become beggars in their own country.

As for the malays who insist on hiding behind the veil of malay special rights - you have lost the respect of non-malays a long time ago.

We also suspect that the current situation will, unfortunately, get worse if no action is taken now. Why? Because our kids in school hardly mix with each other. They will grow up with little understanding of their fellow Malaysians, and with the suspicions that exist, it will be worse.

The truth of the matter is that polarisation in Malaysia is caused by the discriminatory practises of the government - especially after the NEP - rather than vernacular education.

The NEP is upheld for the rich and not the poor in Malaysia.

Whether we admit it or not, the problem is that the special privileges and rights given have now resulted in only a selected few malays getting richer and richer. The bulk of the malays, especially in the rural areas are not benefiting from the system.

Poor people are poor people, rich people are rich people - no matter which race they come from.

The poor in Malaysia must be served but I am sure all taxpayers feel that this should be done in a manner which is blind to age, ethnicity, gender and religion.

What is wrong with extending help to all deserving citizens based on merits and needs regardless of race?

The Malaysia problem is that rich do become richer. And because of the political system, the players are the same.

Out of control - this is all I can say about any type of enforcement and the level of corruption in Malaysia. No idea what Badawi has done in his four years in office but judging from the ground, I guess nothing much.

If you have ever heard of the simple saying, "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime." you will realise that many non-malays have learned how to fish but the government is still handing out fishes to the malays. One day the fish will run out.

If you want to say discrimination is here in the US, yes, of course it is. Can you name a country where it doesn't happen? But let me tell you one thing - if you go looking for it, you will find it. But in Malaysia, you don't have to go look for it because it seeks you out, slaps you in your face every which way you turn, and is sanctioned by law!

Official figures have more than one million Chinese Malaysians emigrating over the past 25 years. Why did they emigrate? I am sure the government knows.

For most professionals, living abroad has its own ups and downs. But you get dignity, fair treatment and respect for your ability. You get a voice too. And ears to hear you.

Brain drain by the tank-loads is what we get. Every single year, Malaysia loses people who could potentially contribute to the country immensely.

So malay, you may keep your rights and perpetuate them. Such things are archaic. Who loses in the end? Your country, which should have been a first world one by today.

I sympathize with those that have benefited from the NEP, but the bad news is that the price he pays for his progress is much higher than what he pays for his benefit.

These special privileges and rights were once a necessity for them to move forward. Today, after many decades, they find themselves still standing in the same place.

It is a shame that our history has been constantly twisted so that our younger generation has no understanding of Malaysia's foundation and its true aspiration.

It is arguable that if not for the contributions of the Chinese and Indian Malaysians who helped in the development of this country tremendously, Malaysia would probably be in same category like Indonesia or the Philippines, if not worst.

To improve the malays lot, more have to be made to work in private companies where competition is real and what count is your ability. If special rights only help malays to become government servants, then all the more reason not to invoke special rights.

But of course, the present ruling elite drunken with wealth, will continue to fight this dream to ensure that Malaysia is kept divided so that BN can continue to rule.

Alternatively, Malaysians may begin to realise the dream of a new Malaysia.

The bitter truth is that the majority of this nation don't see the need to change things yet and until then, we can do little about it.

The bottom line with present day globalisation is this: compete on a level-playing field or you will lose. Plain and simple.

Yes, which Islamic country in the world today is strong in technology science, R&D, literature, etc?

The answer is a big NONE!

Drop Islam and malays would be a better race!

Lee Kuan Yew said recently the relationship between Malaysia and Singapore has not always been smooth sailing, and so investing in the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) may not always be smooth sailing for Singaporean companies.

This is simply a statement of fact that nevertheless appears to have gotten local Umno leaders into a tizzy.

Every local Umno politician hopes to be in a position to be approving investment flows into the country because to stand as gatekeeper is a very lucrative position, and when public squabbles erupt between Umno politicians about who is the better "protector of malay privileges and rights", it usually means someone just wants a bigger cut of the investment action for himself.

Go figure that one.

Of course, the relationship between Malaysia and Singapore is special because of the race relations issue.

Singapore has been the favourite whipping boy of the Umno-controlled malay vernacular press for the last 50 years, and if anything are seen as even bigger devils than the local Chinese and Indian citizens of Malaysia in the eyes of Malaysia's malay Muslims.

The fact is Singapore's development model has meant that Singapore's malays are far better educated, far better equipped, far better paid, far more self-confident, and self-reliant to deal with globalisation than malay Muslims in Malaysia.

This makes Ketuanan Melayu, the malay Agenda, and the NEP look like failed racist apartheid policies that have impoverished everyone except Umno cronies. Of course, Umno must demonise Singapore to maintain the illusion that Umno politicians are nationalists and not parasites, and more so if Singapore happens to be better educated, meritocratic, richer, and safer than Malaysia.

Malay Muslims in Malaysia have been brainwashed by Umno for the last 50 years into thinking that the Chinese and Indians both Malaysians and Singaporeans have gotten rich at their expense, and this perception probably won't change anytime soon because Umno does not have another elections winning formula if it dumps the present demonisation formulas.

Every time Singapore's first world achievements are compared with the sluggish technological, competitiveness, economic, educational, professional, scientific, and social standard in apartheid Malaysia, there is the predictable keris waving, baying for blood, and frothing at the mouth in every Umno up and down the country in Malaysia

Although Chinese and Indian Malaysians have simply accepted the gross racial discrimination in business, education, and job as a fact of life in Malaysia, the non-apartheid non-NEP meritocratic Singaporean mindset may not have the stomach for this particular type of nonsense in the IDR.

I think Lee Kuan Yew is way too smart to think the demonisation process of the Chinese and Indians in the Umno-controlled malay vernacular press is going to stop anytime soon. How else is Umno going to win elections except by continuing to perpetrate the lie that the orang asing minorities in Malaysia are a threat to the malays?

Nevertheless Lee Kuan Yew may be hoping Chinese and Indian Singaporean investors will not be discriminated against in the IDR in comparison with investors from countries like China, Europe, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and United States.

In the meantime, I am sure it will simply be business as usual for the rest of us in racial and religious apartheid Malaysia.
