Malaysia, only you

You know you've read one of those 50 things you learn in a Korean drama etc etc. I think by now, we should have 50 things you learn in Malaysia or from Malaysians.

Here's to name a few:-

When you try to give a better direction to the taxi driver because you're obviously want to reach your destination on time, he suggest the normal way by giving an excuse it will be okay. At the turning point, he turns to you with a *evil* smug and say "Oh, maybe it won't be the same when it's raining". At that point it is raining cats and dogs.

Data Entry seems to be the "only" way to make extra income. Why? #earnwhatyou'reworth

Forget Chivalry. Courtesy is dead. That's the least people can do. Thank you? Received with thanks? Noted? Hello?

Taking a chance. Betting on the fact that your life is longer than a cat's. For instance, rushing through the traffic light even when it's turning red. Green=Go, Yellow=Go faster, and Red=Take a chance.

Gratitude is also dead. There may be political issues going on like Royal London Circus, the once upon a time where you get rebate coupons to go as a student (how exciting it twas!), it may be a bad timing at the moment, but the more complaints, the less smiling how-are-you? , the i'm-having-a-bad-day or F off on your forehead, it's not going to get better. Really.

What exactly Malaysians need is:

1) More Personal Development

Stash those horror, mystique, voodoo, gossip magazines away and start picking a book, or an audio or watch a movie that inspire you.

2) to Feel better.

Gratitude list. Hello? Law of Attraction, The Secret? What you focus more, will become bigger. So more #Ithankyoufor, the more positivity you're going to attract. Geddit?

3) Solidarity

Kinship and shared social values. Taking up responsibilities as a unit, community of feelings and purpose.

4) Be more of a decision maker.

Either you make your own choice, or someone else will dictate yours (read:your life). If you're not happy, then don't stay that way. We are people, we can change. If you don't like your shape, change. If you don't like your hair, make an appointment at your fav saloon. If you don't like your job, do something you like. The only reason why we suffer so much is that we give up. Dreams and Aspirations and Passion is what make of us, our core right down to our 100 trillion cells, which can think. How else a person with a terminal illness can recover? Can you imagine how dynamic our body is? 60% is in the mind, the thinking, decision.

We can do better. Definitely.
