I hope there were no Dayaks or ethnic Sabahan involve in this plan for Malaysian holidays. Thank you to the 1Malaysia concept, and penduduk bumiputra Sarawak and Sabah are sidelined again.
Tak tahu that we celebrate our harvest festivals during the first week of June? The festival that sells colorful ethnic traditional costume all over the world!
Thanks a lot! Now we have to fight for the cuti peristiwa with the other races. Enti nitih ke ati, sigi nadai reti nyimpan janji seMalaysia ke dikingat ke kitai tiap 16 September. Manah nyadi negeri ke merdeka!
Extract from 1Malaysia:
In a matter of hours, before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, I will make the same commitment to Malaysia as my esteemed predecessors. I am fully committed to the responsibilities and challenges inherent in that oath. I will accept it with utmost humility and will meet them to the best of my abilities. Together, we will ensure that Malaysia emerges a stronger, more unified, and prosperous nation.
Last Saturday, I went to Bakong with Benjamin Chai to send some flood relief item. We went there under the Mercy Malaysia banner. The flood situation in Bakong is at its worst and most of the victims are worried about their paddy fields.
We urge the government to extend their assistance in term of giving away free paddy seedling for their coming planting season.
Mercy Malaysia sent basic items like toothpaste, tooth brush, baby pampers, women sanitary towel, soap, blankets, bath towel, mosquito coil, canned food and other stuff.
What happen to the urban Ibans?
During my days as a volunteer, I hardly noticed any Ibans involvement in helping the flood victims. Maybe they are too busy politicking and forgotten that their own race are in need of assistance.
Thank you to the Malays, Chinese, Orang Ulu and Indians volunteers who have come forward to assist the flood victims in Ulu Niah, Suai, and Bakong areas.
