We recently held our 14th general election. I was one of the 'rakyat' who stood in line for two and a half hours, under the hot sun, just to cast my vote that day. I enjoyed every single second of it.
The attendance of the younger generation was now apparent, some waking up really early in the morning to make a difference in their future. Seeing them only renewed my hopes for change. Although there were a lot of deeply shared frustrations about how our country was governed, I could tell that all our hearts are with Malaysia and our love for this country is immeasurable.
When one is unhappy, it is not about the country, it is really about how the country is governed. We have to always remember when to separate between the two. As for me, I try to look past the politics to find my loyalty grounded in the 'tanah'. I have a great love for this country and this where my heart is... Malaysia. I cannot wait for my children to represent her.
