5th November 2018 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

After the recent electoral results in May, I am puzzled when trying to understand the possible outcome of international political scenarios, considering the immediate changes that occurred in the aftermath.

Today when I woke up, I realised that I was at home and not outside in the forest. That is not unusual.

In my dream, I had a nice nap on a hammock at a beautiful tropical beach, and it had to be a “super white beach,” not some average beaches I can easily find in peninsula Malaysia! Coconut trees surrounded the pondok (hut) where I stayed, and beyond the secluded beach zone, there was a vast tropical forest with beautiful humming voices of birds and insects.

It is quite amusing to me that the most popular topic in social media today is “oil price hike“. Almost every Whatsapp group that I am part of talks about the┬áRON97 gasoline MYR0.07 price increase! The ups and downs of fuel prices in Malaysia should not surprise us because many elements contribute to the volatility, not only in my home country but also globally. In short, the upward trend is not so surprising because of the geopolitical events around us.

Part 3: Malaysia is one of the most respected Muslim countries in The World and here is why!

I have traveled to some places including most of the South East Asian countries and the Far Eastern too. There’s no doubt that these countries have a lot in common with Malaysia especially if we talk about the Nusantara countries like Indonesia, Brunei, Southern Thailand, and Singapore. Even if we visit nations like Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Timor Leste, there are still some similarities.

This is ‘The Chronological of Events’ from 1992 to 2001 (and extended). This is a classic case of “From Hero to Zero“, but who knows, it can turn out to be “From Zero to Hero” again very soon (if you know what I mean?) *sigh*

So, please go figure and connect the dots.

These facts were painstakingly collected and researched from various reputable news sites around the globe (see references at the bottom of this article):

ENJOY!

Part 2: Sepak Takraw is a unique sport from Malaysia and we are the best in the World!

According to some historical documents, Malaysia is the sole inventor of “Sepak Takraw” which was originally called Sepak Raga.

However, Thailand, being the mightiest Kingdom in the South East Asian region at that time competed with the Malacca Kingdom by declining to admit that Sepak Takraw was originated from Malaysia. The Thais said that Sepak Takraw was originated from Thailand, and the game should be called Takraw instead!
