I’m not going to work today for a reason you can guess, yes, I’m sick. I will try my best to stay healthy and I hate to see workload on the table which can easily cause me severe headache. But sometimes I have to just agree with others that I simply need a rest. I mean authentic rest.
Ok. Fine, I’m off today. I went to the clinic to get some prescription from the same doctor and drove back home. She worried about me. Sorry for didn’t let you know earlier as I thought it wasn’t serious. In fact, it really wasn’t serious. Despite I was sick, I didn’t want you to worry. Please accept my apology.
What I want to talk about here is about the Merdeka Day celebration (Merdeka Day is Independent Day which we celebrate every 31st of August). We pompously brag about our multiracial country without any hesitate. Yes, I’d agree with you that it is something other country could not afford.
But do you think that we as a multiracial country really amalgamated?
I seriously doubt.
There is still boundary that keeps us apart. In fact, I don’t see any good effort from the politicians that lead to our unity. Don’t you think so?
Instead of harmonize us all, they prefer to talk about themselves seeking no others but their very important position, doesn’t matter in the party or in the country. I know it is weird but truth is bitter most of the time.
Yesterday, my office went ballistic with the celebration. They stick the flags in the whole office doesn’t matter it looks good or not, simply stick them everywhere. I suppose it was an order from the director. What for? Showing the patriotism in ourselves? Do you really think by sticking the flags everywhere show how much you concern about the country more than just a plain celebration?
Put the flag on your car fully covered the whole car show how much you love Malaysia? Wear the t-shirt with a flag on it and “I love Malaysia!” written below the flag really prove that you love this country vastly? Give me a break, please.
Now, our office look likes rubbish and seriously I feel like I’m working in the rubbish bin. Not in the office anymore.
Office should provide a very cozy environment so that we can work comfortably with a clear mind. Not like this, messy and ugly.
Honestly, I don’t agree with this idea.
