After reading all the post and comments in Malaysian Today it's makes me think back of why I don't want to stay there for life.
It's a shame that most Malays in Malaysia have this 'very nice prespective POV' :P.
Yes I admit I was born there. And yes I'm a non-bumi but in my view I just don't care what race I was born. I just consider myself as a human being that will work hard to earn my keep in this world.
As for the post by those Malays in Malaysian Today are very offensive. Just reading them just make me want to hurt the author them badly. But enough about them.
To answer your question about your doubt if Malaysia is really your home.
The truth is home is where everyone accepts you. Home is a place where you can feel comfortable. Where you're not subjected to hate or any discrimination. It can be anywhere in any country so long as you feel comfortable living there.
Forget about partriotism and forget about nationalism.
Those things only work in the 1900's.
This is the 22nd century.
As long as you work hard, earn your keep, have decipline and a good character then you're a good person and you'll get the respect you deserve.
I can understand that there are some things in Malaysia that makes you bonded by it.
Family, friends, memories in school and etc. But these memories are just not enough to keep your happiness alive as long as others treat you differently( Well for you maybe it is but I just don't know).
Perhaps it's fear of moving into new environment or perhaps that Malaysia is the only best place that you've only been to that keeps you there.
The only thing you need to ask yourself is you're happy living where you are now?
If you're not then I hate to agree with this statement -> " If you are not as fortunate and are unhappy about it, wanting everything under the Sun ie, power, wealth, bigger opportunities, then I suggest you either move to Disneyland or to the land of your forefathers "
. You can migrate but just don't take this degrading statement seriously. There's a level of suffering a human can tolerate and why should you be subjugated to that level? You do not need to put up with their remarks even though you know you're working very hard not only for your sake but for them.
Should you get slapped back for doing a good job?
Should you get blamed and taunted even though you didn't do a bad deed?
Shoud you get walked on like some dirt on the sidewalk?
The answers are no. You're human and you'll expect to be treated like one.
It's all built into our nature.
We have the intellegence that's build in our minds to be appreciated by others.
If the society around you doesn't see you as one of them then its best that you search for a place that accepts you as whom you are.
If you cannot take in their treatment againts you please do not stress yourself by tolerating it. You'll end up unhappy,sad and tired. You might also end up having emotional stress and mental disorders.
Do not torture yourself by binding yourself to their remarks such as being a traitor to your country. It might be the trick of theirs (the one's you're fed up with) for you to stay so they can leech out your resourcefulness untill you're nothing but and old sack. Have you notice boroi_72's post?
He's a non-bumi.
His father has to work hard for his tietry education.
He decided to study locally to save the nations resources while his friends go overseas.
He graduates and has to work hard to pay 10% extra for his house.
He undestood the social contracts and still decided to go on with it.
And those malays in the forum treated him like a diamond in their replies.
Another gold from the sky to exploit.
Another persons blood to suck.
Just because he decides to study locally and save the nations resources.
Heh I just like to comment on this reply to Boroi72"Boroi72, I read your piece with much affection and truly feel for you and your father. Many of us are grateful to your loyalty to the country that we both profess to be OURS."
Ours? meaning Malay,Chinese and Indians?
Or just Malays?
"Please do not feel hurt by what was said by Hang Tuah as I am sure it wasn't directed at you. I am sure it was directed at the other ungrateful souls who think the Nation owes them her gratitude just because they were born here."
Me think the nation owes me gratitude?
No I have my own financial support studying overseas that is hard earned by my parents thank you.
You can have the coffers that the goverment gets from taxes Thank you.
I would gladly not touch them.Since you make alot of noise about it.
Maybe its you who're the one who's after the money. "Besides you Boroi, there are other Malays out there who share the same fate. Perhaps our leaders betrayed us for thier cronies just as the Chinese leaders betrayed you for their own purpose. What I am trying to say is, some of them are saying that they worked their butss off to be where they are today when in actual fact they exist at the behest of UMNO leaders themselves."
"This hostility is not aimed at you, who can converse well in Bahasa Melayu and deserve the right to call this country your home, but it is aimed at those commies who have no love for the country,"
This person only judges that those who can speak Bahasa Melayu well are deserved to call Malaysians. And what about those non- Bumi's from older generations?
They can't speak Bahasa Melayu well but that doesn't mean that they're not Malaysians too. Such a degrading statement.
"who enjoy its peace and prosperity but are ready to migrate and live like rats in places "Malaysians all over the world who have migrated!We are not WANTED!
So there's no need to come back.
I'm sure this guy can take care of the country all by himself.
Us enjoy the peace and prosperity?
We work and pay our taxes to the goverment which you have spent you idiot.
Ooo calling us rats eh?
Well the only rat I see is you who suck the tax coffers from hard working people
"where there are no Chinese schools, food, tokong, just out of spite for our leaders and out of sheer refusal to recognize and realize who the real Masters are in this land."
No Chinese schools?
They do have chinese schools else where.
You just don't know it.
Wait wait you don't like chinese schools set up in YOUR country?
That's already denying human rights @$$ hole.
I'm sure other countries have better human rights than Malaysia.
'Masters' of the land?
Yeah right. Get real.
Dude grow up.
His stupidity never cease to amaze me.

Note to all other Bumiputeras who thinks like this:
Yes if you don't want us Chinese and Indians here no sweat just say it.
We shall move and you can just manage the country all by yourselves with no help.
We shall go where people will want us and respect us.
But if your country(well since you all declare yourselves 'Masters' of the land) falls down into pieces then do not blame us.
Great! this kind of people really gets me in a bad mood.
