Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry chairman said public holidays in Malaysia should be reduced from 17 days. [From the last paragraph here]
I totally agree with him.
He also said government should consider CANCELLING the holidays for Wesak Day and Deepavali BECAUSE not many people celebrate these festivals.
I agree wholeheartedly.
Well, there is only 8% of MALAYSIAN INDIAN [funny isn't it? African-American refers to American citizens of African descent. So, Malaysian Indian would refers to citizens of India of Malaysians descent, wouldn't it? They didn't plan to stay here. They wanted to go back HOME hence the vernacular schools].
There is 27% of MALAYSIAN CHINESE. Going by the Sarawak election, my guess is a big number of them are CHRISTIANS. Therefore, I strongly suggest we make do WITHOUT Chinese New Year celebration too because the number of people celebrating Chinese New year is not that big. Christmas holiday should be abolished as well since the number must also be small.
Now I am really really wondering how this small number of Malaysian Indians managed to get Interlok rewritten?
Where are the Melayu who rolled on the road to have ETeMS [English for teaching of Maths and Science] revoked?
Apartheid in Africa is supposed to be dead. I think it is well and alive here. The minorities are thriving and taking over this tanah air. They have their own schools, their own universities. In Sarawak, they don't even bother to speak the national language.
I stand corrected on the percentages above. My googling skill is NIL.
