Chin Peng in 21st Century

Chin Peng in 21st Century
Hi to all readers, there are at times where we tend to speak out aloud what is in our mind without seeing what is happening around us. I am just another regular reader to my all time favorites The Star since young. Lately there are articles popped out of this “great” man named Chin Peng, famously to be known during the communist time in Malaya.

Our Malaysians spoke out that Chin Peng is an unforgiving icon for Malaysian history, based on what he has done to us.
In this article I will not stand firm either on Chin Peng application case or even our Malaysians since I am not born in that era. Its very unfair for me to judge.

What I wanted to comment in this matter will be based on our 21st century mindset.
Apart from this, in all the religions in the world, the most basic fundamental is FORGIVE. I believe not many people aware of that.

Next, we need to look at a bigger picture when putting criticism into a matter. If Chin Peng case is consider a totally No-No case, then we need to reconsider about JAPAN and GERMANY. The two monsters during World War Two kill countless of people inconsiderable. But Today, we Malaysians are one of the closest country to Japan. Mobile and technologies speaks louder now. For examples to the laymen, Honda cars are importing to Malaysia, Sony are using nationwide.

For Petronas, Japan signed 25 years of contract for LNG shipping transportation with Malaysia.
Kindly seek the Malaysian Government to cancel off Japan business, telling them that they are unforgiving during World War Two. Let us be the next big joker charted in the world map. GERMANY's Mercedes cars are using by executives levels in government departments. What say now?

We need to think before we speak. Just because Chin Peng is still alive, he is not to be forgiven? Then what about Japan and Germany sinners? They are not to be remembered?

We need to change our mindset to move forward, not backward.
We cannot achieve Vision 2020 with this childish mindset.
To live the future, we need the mindset of future.
History is important too. They are to be remembered and forgiven, not to be condemned.
I hope this article could be publish out, so the readers can be aware what they are talking.

Just another ordinary reader,

The Clock...

The Clock

Watching the minute hand on the clock go around.

You’re trying to win but you’re losing ground.

The steady ticking will drive you insane.

Don’t look at the others, they look with disdain.

The tickity tock pounds into your mind.

The ropes and chains, feel them bind.

Watch the clock and fall to your knees.

You need a cure for this disease.

Slowly and surely, the seconds pass.

Scream so loud you shatter glass.

Hear the call pierce through the night.

Horse bit in your mouth so you can’t bite.

Seconds and minutes, they don’t mean a thing.

What can the next hour bring?

Tickity tock goes the hand.

How much more can you stand?

You spot the knife, but don’t bother.

It’s just a sick prank from the Holy Father.

Which is easier, live or die?

In this world, you can’t say goodbye.

Scream and yell, don’t waste your breath.

Look to the sky and pray for death.

Struggle for freedom but it’s a lost cause.

Die in this world listening to an applause.

Tick, tock, your end is near.

You seem a lot weaker than you appear.

You’re now face first on the floor.

Look at your body, is it sore?

The blood and dirt, it’s an inch thick.

You’re end is coming and coming quick.

You feel a jerk, your body’s heaving.

Can you feel it, your soul leaving?

With one last tick, you’re finally gone.

No one will miss you at the dawn.

Love or In LOve?

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you' re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... The one who turns to his friends and says, "thats her"....
