While the Malaysian election is going on now, the entire citizens of Malaysia are anxiously awaiting the results! Phantom voters and dirty electoral rolls are one of the main concerns for the people or 'rakyat' as majority of them want CHANGE to be implemented in the country. Updating these news as we are getting results in a few hours time! Pray for the best Malaysia!!
7/05 Pray? Does even praying helps now when things turned out so hideous? So yeah coming to the purpose of this entry, I went to collect my portion of money for transport expenses incurred to come home for voting from one of the government political party's office on the day of election. What I found out was a bunch of ignorance society waiting over there for the same purpose too. As the election heat was still on during that day, people acted very concerned towards their rights all of a sudden.
What do you do when you approach a government office to claim something? I'm pretty sure you would bring your identification and relevant documents with you. On top of that, when something concerns money, you need to inform the ones in charge that you would be coming to collect your money so that they could make an arrangement for it. Why on earth are our Malaysian Indians living on ridiculous ignorance and blame the authorities for not granting them money as they fail to inform people in charge about it?!
I saw them all blaming the lady for not giving them transport money. When the lady clarified the situation and told the people that they are responsible to notify about it earlier to ease preparation and arrangement, the public rebelled and said they DON'T KNOW about the procedures before hand. Does that even counted as a valid reason?
I abhor the I DON'T KNOW statement here! Ignorance is not always BLISS people!
Your I DON'T KNOW means:
1) You are escaping from further questions on your knowledge or credibility to exercise your rights the correct way.
2) You are a pathetic opportunist to dig your invalid share on public money.
3) You expect people to work for you all the time and for the information come knocking your door.
4) You are not steadfast and do not educate yourself on exercising your rights the fair way.
People, be fair when it comes to claiming your rights! Know what you are supposed to do and how to do it before you even think of stepping at people's door and start speaking for yourselves. That's a better identity of educated people and citizen! Don't shame yourself!
