Malaya Elusive Co-operation part 4 of 6

Continuation of Distortion of History ……

Instead of working together to benefit Malaysia, Malaya wants to take over Sabah – mind and body.  This condescending attitude and colonizing the mind, that Sabahans by implication are unreliable and untrustworthy.  Even the Sabah Malays is only good as peons, only orang Malaya can do it.

Sabah and Malaya are Different part 5 of 5

It is ironic, the people in Malaya is moving towards the traditional Sabah thinking of individualism whilst some Sabahans are moving towards the way the people in Malaya traditionally thinks and perceived the world.  However, trying to change the mindset of Sabahans from individualism to conformity in this modern and inter-connected World is a waste of time.

Sabah and Malaya are Different part 4 of 5

There are many similarities in the Sabah way of life and the Muslims in Indonesia.  In Indonesia, a person from a Malay stock, dress like a Malay, practicing the Malay culture but may not be a Muslim is acceptable.

The Sabah Mindset

In Sabah, in the early days most of the teachers come from Central Java or Banjarmasin.  Teachers from these places are mainly dakwah (those whose function to spread the religion).  They trained not just as a teacher but also to be as part of the society where they are going.  Their approach is to assimilate themselves into the community and not just interact.

Sabah and Malaya are Different part 1 of 5

A common assumption made by many that people in Sabah is the same as people in Malaya especially the Malays.  This assumption is flawed; I begin to see this problem as I joined the blogging community from Malaya.  I can summarize these differences in their thinking and the way they perceived the people in Sabah – in one word – Condescending.

Rancangan Malaya Ke10 Menepati Sasaran

A very apt name to call the RMK10 as Rancangan Malaya Ke10.  Najib is not talking about Malaysia he is just talking only about Malaya specifically Klang Valley and Selangor.  I bet my bottom ringgit ( not that much) that Sabah will get the 2nd highest allocation and Sarawak will get the 3rd largest allocation.  The local Ministers will be so happy patting each other’s back on a job well done.  But wait a minute, “Where is the money, Show me the money!”

Discrimination and Disfranchising Sabah – The Cabotage Policy

The role of the Malaysian Cabotage Policy


Overview of the Cabotage Policy

The Cabotage Policy

The Effect of Cabotage Policy to Sabah Economy

Beneficiaries to the Cabotage Policy

Cabotage Policy and the BIMP EAGA

Circumventing the Cabotage Policy


This is clearly shown in the ideas of the Barisan Nasional, where political power is welded by 3 major components United Malay National Organisation (UMNO), the Malaya (Malaysian) Indian Congress (MIC) and the Malaya (Malaysian) Chinese Association (MCA).  The role of other members of the Barisan National components is irrelevant; they are practically impotent their presence as members is just to legitimize decisions made by the big 3.

Changes are sweeping across the political and economic landscape in Malaysia especially after the political Tsunami of 2008 and the uncertainty and volatility of global economic scenarios.  Both the MIC and MCA are racked by institutional breakdowns, and UMNO is also facing a crisis of confidence.  The political power of the Big 3 is finally in disarray and the leaders are powerless to give order into these chaos.

Malaya or Malaysia

Eavesdropping is a bad habit, I must admit.  But I could not help overhearing the conversation between the salesgirl and one Ma’chik, in the Filipino market in Kota Kinabalu recently.
