Oi, you think we don’t know?

A silver lining to the grim impact of the ‘full’ and partial lockdowns is the emergence of new, youthful talents almost every day. This emergence of fresh voices – at a time when the entire system has been shaken to its core – gives me much hope for a more vibrant, inclusive nation.

Nicole Kylie writes in her YouTube channel:

A sad song about the sad state of our beloved country. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot about ministers/people in power who abuse their power. Getting away with going against SOPs, allegedly using the rakyat’s money to go on holiday, etc. – and then just “buat don’t know”. But we know.

These are difficult times for Malaysia, and it’s becoming more apparent that some people in high places care more about their personal agendas than the wellbeing of the country. And we know that too.

To the ministers/people in power who continue to serve the nation, thank you. To those with personal agendas: oi, you think we don’t know?

Yes, we can see more clearly now. And we know that ultimately, we cannot rely on politicians alone. We too have to do our part and make our voices heard, and join hands with our brothers and sisters around us.

Many years ago, my colleagues and I would discuss what it would take for Malaysia to change for the better. Someone suggested perhaps the people have to go through a period of suffering and despair for the scales to come off our eyes so that people can see things as they are. And not just the negativity – we could also see all that we share in common … our common humanity in this world, our common home.

For without such awareness and realisation, how do we know what to discard, what to change, and what really matters?

Young people are mostly fed up with the gov. Politicians can be easily acquitted … There is only one Tun M and he is lucky that he was in an era where things can be easily covered up. Shriek, you must stop your DAP friends from continuing the useless Penang tambak project. Your party is already so wealthy after some 10 years of zero opposition in the political arena, come on.

Teh susu, drink milk tea is sooo easy. You really do better by talking and not doing. Why dont you do it? Go and demostrate. Further you said this era is not like Dr M under cover. Go and expose or you only expose yourself like Emperor without clothes? No wonder people like you make the country a failed state. You can do better to be from zero to one opposition in Pengland. You want to one opposition dont call milk like babies.

List out the benefits the the project, you list out…I will refute you 1 by 1 … This pandemic showed us that our country is too unequip to handle any big disasters and we have politicians insisting on building fake islands… is reclamation a priority? Use it to upgrade our healthcare facilities and increase pay to nurse and doctors. Stop shrieking nonsense

Yes you can do more by your donation to them as your Gilakan, Towkay Party, PASS and PiN is the CENTRAL and COLLECTS cukai. Docs and nurses are CENTRAL gomen employers and similar to teachers. School, hospitals are built by Your PASS gomen. What a p brain and kakat only KBKB. PASS CENTRAL gomen are RESPONSIBLE for them not State Gomen. You should shriek at them. After more than 60 years mederka, you do not seem to know and understand the 3 layers of Gomen. With p brain no wonder and Pengland Kias truly go over the seas.

Time to drink more milk tea as your brain need major rewiring. #TolakTambak

Babe go and drink more milk and grow up. Grow your brain. State gives extra only to state civil servants as they work for state and not for you or Moo. Now you said “useless” PN go and tembak them left and right, up and down. You too focus or in love with the state? You think state print money. You said state can do better to those looking for food in komtar and to give extra to docs as they are Central gomen employees. P brain, look at education, you think state can play play and KBKB like crying… Read more »

Now it’s time to think out of box.

New Normal calls for new mindsets.

Traditional ways can be outdated including voting criteria in GE15.

Youngsters now have access to global info via internet. Time to seize opprtunities in times of covid n governance crisis by leveraging on your mobile connection instead of indulging in unproductive gaming that can further stress your minds (since most popular games are violent in nature).

Young generation growing up on good life suddenly noticed depressing future in job market, falling Ringgit, economic downturn, poor governance and leadership. At least now they have social media to vent their frustration.

Many don’t have a good life or are living beyond means. Some have always faced discrimination. Others have no perspective, e.g. family or local history; marketing has hypnotised them.

Venting frustration is self shiok. Like teh susu venting and telling others to do it to act. Same with Tunlang giving instructions to Anil. Venting frustration is KBKB. This no good and that no good. No solution. Problem still there and will not shoo away

Shriek prefers political apathy?
KPKB is better than being indifferent or Bo Chap. Your friend tunglang used to be outspoken, but now ‘lying flat’ (躺平)?

Anil and his blog here is more on social issues – What politics? Social, community and environmental issues are not solved by KBKB. We have to DO as a community. Too bad, we do come together as a community and NGOs easy to KBKB than implementing the doing. China has gone through Communism – equal treatment whether one work hard or not. Why should one work hard for the state and get the same with those not working hard? They prefer to work hard for themselves. That is where Deng bring changes and state enterprises eased. That is what in… Read more »

Hello, King of Shrieking. Penang needs no more daily verbal toxic to shoot down others (esp. Penangites) who have constructive ideas & comments to share, agreeing to disagree. More importantly, for the state gomen to hear out our concerns via anilnetto.com. And more hopefully, since that arrogant Niao Kong is ‘gone’ for good! We Penangites are in ground zero, we know what good & bad are happening in the state. Because we love our Pulo Pinang. We want our children to inherit a better, cleaner & more opportunity home state. The past months since June 2019 have opened my mind… Read more »
