Good riddance

There have been a constant bee-line for Malaysians abroad to apply for their citizenship of the Federation of Malaysia be ceased, in order for them to be a citizen of another nation.

Bidding farewell to Malaysia

BY DINA ZAMAN

Published: 30 June 2015 7:00 AM
Things can get busy on weekday mornings at the guardhouse outside the regal building of the Malaysian High Commission in Singapore at Jervois Road, as a string of Malaysians come to renew their passports, announce their permanent resident (PR) status and renounce their Malaysian citizenship.
Between 30 and 50 applications to renounce Malaysian citizenship are received a day in Singapore, dropped off in a special box for documents of this nature, one of the guards on duty told The Malaysian Insider there recently.

Submission of renunciation applications is from 8.15am to 11am from Mondays to Fridays, but those who come to drop their documents off have often been turned away by 9.30am and told to return the next day.

The day’s quota has already been filled, they are told.
It’s a telling sign about the number of people who are keen to give up their identities as Malaysians, although there are no official statistics available on the number of Malaysians who renounce their citizenship in the island republic.

There are more than one million Malaysians said to be residing abroad as expatriates, as PRs and as citizens of their chosen countries.

But official numbers of Malaysians who have renounced their citizenship are hard to come by.

In Singapore, the number of Malaysians becoming citizens had been on an upward trend between 2004 and 2008.

There was a dip in 2009 for a spell and an increase in 2012. That year, 20,693 citizenships were awarded to new residents.

The dip in 2009 was “mirrored in the annual uptake of permanent residency, which more than doubled from 36,900 in 2004 to 79,167 in 2008 but suffered a decrease to 59,460 in 2009.

Population statistics as at December 2011 put the number of people in the republic at 3.81 million, of whom 3.27 are citizens and 0.54 million permanent residents.

“Sharper declines were recorded for both citizenship and permanent residency in 2010, ahead of the May 2011 general election,” according to data available at the Migration Policy Institute.

The country also had a non-resident population of 1.46 million who are working, studying or living in Singapore on a non-permanent basis.

New lives

For two former Malaysians who are now Singaporeans, the choice to surrender the citizenship of their birth country was made for a better life, on their terms.

Friends Daphne Lim and Saranee Joseph (not their real names to protect their children’s interests) became Singaporeans recently.

Lim, a single mother in her 40s, said the idea of renouncing her Malaysian citizenship was not foreign. She had grown up being told that as a Chinese, she was not welcome in the country.

Treading a path familiar to many Chinese Malaysians, Lim furthered her studies in Australia, returned to Malaysia with a degree, married and followed her spouse to Singapore.

They applied for PR status, but after a while, she decided to become a citizen upon seeing the benefits accorded to Singapore citizens. She said her children have benefited from her decision and life for her in Singapore was never dull. The buzz of the city invigorated her and she was glad to be rid of the political negativity in Malaysia.

“It was never an issue for me. I knew that one day, I would no longer be Malaysian,” she said.

Lim admitted she had a great childhood in Malaysia, but the contentment she has now as an adult surpassed the memories. The opportunities and benefits she and her children have “are good. You can’t get them in Malaysia!”

Joseph, meanwhile, became a citizen after her having a child. She had already been working in Singapore as a consultant, and upon becoming a mother, felt she had to think of her child’s future.

If before she harboured thoughts of retiring in Malaysia, the child’s presence has forced her to assess their lives.

Having a Malaysian citizenship in Singapore would only court confusion for her daughter, Joseph said. Since she was born and brought up there, it would just be easier to be a Singaporean, she said.

The experiences of former classmates also had an impact, Joseph said, noting that a few had become bitter at not being able to fulfil their potential in Malaysia.

“The bitterness they displayed was not something I wanted for myself,” she said, adding that she felt lucky to have found work in Singapore and to settle down here.

What Lim and Joseph both remember about their lives in Malaysia was the absence of race and religious tension. It was a carefree time for them, but one which no longer seems to exist.

Lim said Singapore was safe to the point that she allowed her children to take the MRT by themselves at night.

Joseph said “Singapore can be restrictive politically… but the pros outweigh the cons.”

It’s also the way the city and its infrastructure are planned. Singapore is a green oasis, they said, unlike Malaysia which is facing indiscriminate development and deforestation.

Farewell

Back at the Malaysian High Commission’s stately building, would-be Singaporeans come to submit their documents with bittersweet feelings.

The documents required are the forms “K” and “MY-RN1”, and with these forms, other documents such as identity cards, birth certificate, a letter of approval from the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and Malaysian passport.

The two forms are straightforward – the applicant only needs to state all his particulars, but not the reason for renunciation.

To renounce Malaysian citizenship, the applicant must be 21 years of age and above. He may have been a PR, or may have already decided that he wants to be a Singaporean from the onset.

As one drops in the documents into the box, the soft thud is a reminder of the finality of it all: he is no longer Malaysian. – June 30, 2015.

***********************

Many would feel that it would be good riddance for these bunch of Malaysians who donwannabes no longer remain as a Malaysians. By denouncing their citizenship, they would automatically lose all their rights and privileges.

They probably become their forefathers first as stateless people before they could be admitted as citizens of a new nation.

It is clear that these bunch should no longer be Malaysians because they are more self centred than anything else. This also means that they do not value their own family’s legacy and history how their earlier relations were Malayanised, unconditionally.

This episode about Malaysians wanting to leave is most likely the Non Malays of Semenanjung rather than Sabahans and/or Sarawakians. It is for simple reason that Sabahans and Sarawakians are very proud of their state and land of birth.

The fact is that history has proven that majority of the Non Malays were brought into Semenanjung for economic reasons by the British Colonialists to become coolie in their enterprises such as estates and mines. In the late Victorian era and early Edwardian era, opportunities were exploited to the maximum as industrialisation and trade in the United Kingdom was at its pinnacle.

As they were brought in as labourers and gradually later  some of the Chinese were allowed to set up cottage enterprises to serve the growing requirements of new settlements created by the plantation and mining activity boom, they were still ‘tools’ to the British economic eco-system.

Despite the administration of then Malaya was under British, these Non Malays are not subjects to HRH Malay Rulers, hence they had very limited rights.

When the wind of political awakening was arisen and fanned post WWII, the Malays and Non Malays equally state their grounds to earn and gain political standing. A milestone was achieved when 29 Malay NGOs formed United Malay National Organisation on 11 May 1946 and managed to convince HRH Malay Rulers to abandoned the Malayan Union which they inked and being announce at Westminster Palace, to formalise the colonialisation of the Federation of Malaya.

Perjanjian Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, 21 January 1948

Perjanjian Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, 21 January 1948

The demise of Malayan Union brought HRH Malay Rulers and the British Administrators to sit down and negotiate as UMNO as the political organisation representing the Malay masses attended as observants. On 21 January 1948 an agreement Federation of Malaya Treaty was achieved and inked.

The Federation of Malaya (Persekutuan Tanah Melayu) was formally incepted.

In the agreement, it was clearly stated that “The subjects of HRH Malay Rulers are the Malays” and Non Malays who want to be recognised as ‘Subjects of HRH Malay Rulers’ must adhere to strict conditions.

Hence, majority of Non Malays are classified as ‘Stateless Persons’. (With the exception of some who are considered British subjects by the virtue of their stature in Strait Settlements).

Excerpts of the Article 12 of the Federation of Malaya Treaty 1 February 1948:

There was a specific mention of Article 12 on citizenship, item

(a) “Any subjects of HRH Malay Rulers who were born on on before the date”,

(b) “Any British subjects who were born in the Strait Settlements on or before that date”,

(c) “Any persons which was born on or before the date in any of the Malay States within the Federation who is practicing the Malay culture and speak the Malay language”.

There was specific provision for the application to be citizens, which clearly state the requirement to be verse in Malay. No provisions for the rights of the Non Malays were mentioned.

*****************

Needless to say, life carried on as business as usual till 16 June 1948 where three British planters were attacked and killed by Malayan Communist Party rebels. Majority of those who were drawn into MCP as terrorists and rebels are of Chinese ethnicity and they subscribe and inspired to the same communism led by Mao Ze Dong of China (then, rebelling against the Kuomintang National Government in mainland China).

The “Butchers of Malaya”

Even in the midst of communist rebellion, political movements still grow and political parties and organisations tend to represent the ethnicity divide. The working relationship started when UMNO (representing the Malays) worked with MCA (representing the Chinese) in an adhoc Kuala Lumpur Town Council election in 1952.

That political success brought towards a closer working ties where MIC representing the Indians were also drawn in. By 1955, the Alliance Party was formed and they agreed on a formula and were ready to face eligible Malayans for the first democratic process in the determination of the Federal Consultative Council.

Alliance Party won 51 out of 52 seats for grabs despite 84% of the eligible voters are Malays since although the population of Malaya between the Malays and Non Malays were almost balanced, most of the Non Malays are classified as ‘Stateless Persons’.

84% of the eligible voters in the 1955 Federal Consultative Council general election are the Malays, who were 'Subjects of HRH Rulers'.

84% of the eligible voters in the 1955 Federal Consultative Council general election are the Malays, who were ‘Subjects of HRH Rulers’.

Despite the issue of a good slightly more than a third of Federation of Malaya inhabitants are still classified as ‘Stateless Persons’, Tunku Abdul Rahman formed his first Cabinet comprises of UMNO, MCA and MIC leaders where a true power-sharing concept is born and practiced.

Never the less, Chief Minister of Federation of Malaya Tunku Abdul Rahman had MCA and MIC leaders to accompany him to negotiation withe Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Whitehall for Kemerdekaan.

Tunku’s wisdom and charisma successfully managed to struck a balance between obtaining HRH Rulers agreement to opt for a Constitutional Monarchy system and admission of the ‘Stateless Persons’ as citizens of the Federation of Malaya, a fundamental component for this nation to be born is what commonly known as the ‘Social Contract’.

The new Independent nation was born on 31 August 1957 and all citizens are granted equally rights to everything and opportunities. Hence, the economy grew due to the infrastructure and conducive environment provided by the government which is generally driven by the Malays where as the Chinese optimise all entrepreneurial opportunities.

Within the first decade of Kemerdekaan, the Chinese socio-economic stature improved if not flourished as their entrepreneurial sense enabled many to nurture their businesses and enterprises, even at commercial level. Where as, the Malays as the majority remained stagnant as the country grows wealthier.

The extremists and radicals within DAP and Gerakan parading through Kg Baru insulting the Malays, days after the May 1969 3GE

The socio-economic and political landmark changed after a racial-riot sparked on 13 May 1969 due to instigation by extreme elements, left wingers and Chinese chauvinists and the Malays reacted, especially the insult against them compounded by effect to the anguish of being socio-economically sidelined.

A marvellous solution of the New Economic Policy (NEP) was drafted and quickly executed by then Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak Hussin where the objective is to narrow the socio-economic gap, disassociate any particular ethnic with a specific economic activity and alleviate socio-economic standing of all through programs such as education.

It also meant that the economic cake is widened more to participate and a portion was carved out for the Bumiputra agenda, with the specific intent that they are able to rise and catch up on the entrepreneurial and commercial game of the economy.

The wealthiest Malaysians

Naturally, the Non Malays particularly the Chinese who are the ones most active in the entrepreneurial and commercial game of the game benefitted most. The state of the nation today with the sound commercial sector of four decades between mid 70s till present day is the empirical evidence that despite NEP being implemented, the economy, socio-economic standing and wealth of the nation grew.

At the early of the 90s, the encouraging economic growth and track record provided then Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Dr Mahathir Mohamad to launch the Vision 2020 policy where within 30 years, Malaysia is supposed to reach a developed nation status.

Hence, the entire system was geared towards achieving that goal through various policies. Many programs were introduced where the education system at tertiary level was liberalised and more students are sent abroad. Upskilling training programs were also introduced.

More and more opportunities are opened where students and youth are exposed to the various job opportunities and even entrepreneurial programs.

Many professionals from around the region started to apply for positions in Malaysia, especially in ICT sector. Particularly from India. Now, even Chinese and Filipino technical people are being brought in to fill in the industry requirements for human capital.

In short, Malaysia is a land of plenty.

However, if some Malaysians who benefitted from the transformation this nation has brought upon to their own rakyat through various programs in the past fifty years which has now bore fruit so many times over as living proofs still want to leave for greener postures, so be it.

Malaysian Chinese abroad holing the Jalur Gemilang upside down

They can rationalise and justify what ever angle they prefer but in actual fact, they probably failed to optimise all the opportunities and find their pot of gold, whilst others managed to make hay when the sun was still shining. Many continued to make really barns of hay.

Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak’s administration is very committed towards the transformation agenda, which itself is a continuum of all the programs that were proven successful by the five prime minister before. He is determined to ensure the sun remains shining and the posture continue to be green for Malaysians to nurture, grow and exploit.

It is good riddance for those who are unable to see the big picture and seize the moment, especially when they had several moments of hot iron to strike within their reach, at the right time.

  1. Good trends ,and should be encourage .
    The nation should be blessed without them ,as normally this type will always insist, what had the country did for them ,instead of asking themselves ,what had they done for the country .

    We had enough problem with ,”Melayu ,kayu ulu kapak” ,and those “Melayu angkat” who officially being Malay for good reason, but on the other side they are belong to their roots ,and have no feeling being a Malay .
    If they are no feeling being a Malay ,what is this Malay nation to them ?.

    • To vent our frustration, we can keep on whacking the bloody British colonialists for bringing the “coolies” into this country and for twisting the arms of our leaders into agreeing to citizenship right for them during the fight for independence.

      But to get real meaning in expressing our words and sentiments, we must address them to those ungrateful ingrate Sons of Guns who, having got citizenship right, refused to respect the Constitution of this country and live by it fully.

      Those in the MCA and the MIC have said thank you to the Malays.
      Twice, said Tun Tan Siew Sin, then President of MCA – once for agreeing to citizenship right at Merdeka and another for relaxing the issue of citizenship certificates after Merdeka, leading to so many of them unable to speak BM well until now (a subject for another time).

      But, the SOGs who are not thankful are also not respecting the consideration for the Malays agreeing to the citizenship right – the enshrining in the Constitution of the Special Position of the Malays (extended to the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak on the formation of Malaysia). That Special Position which the British said had always been there since day one (re British Hansard Malaya Independence debates). They also are not respecting the sensitive Articles of the Constitution. They are mostly members and supporters of the DAP.

      We must labour on these endlessly. Bring it up, repeat it, again and again. Until they respect and live by the Constitution fully. Or until they renounce their citizenship right or migrate from this country.

    • Ridhuan Tee selalu pakai perkataan “ultra kiasu”. Ramai yang lain gunakan perkataan “ungrateful ingrates.”

      Makna nya lebih kurang sama gamak nya.

  2. It’s a personal decision, B D, so there is no need to get antsy or angsty.

    I would think that it would be more gracious to wish them well, especially if they have family and friends in Malaysia.

    Talent knows no boundaries. The skilled and talented (and those with considerable assets) can always be assured of a welcome somewhere.

    Singapore, Australia, Britain, the US, Canada…..it’s a matter of picking and choosing.

    At the very least, they have the determination to pursue their own future, without being subject to coercion, discrimination, prejudices and racial and religious intolerances.

    Unpalatable though it may be to some.

    Btw, it is surprising you have mentioned Sabah and Sarawak. As you might know, there are many Sabahans and Sarawakians working in Singapore, often in menial jobs as unskilled labour.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that there is a constantly filled pipeline of Sabahans and Sarawakians looking for work in Singapore. As too Malaysians from the peninsula.

    Misguided, all of them? Or just seeking the wherewithal to support their families back home?

    • What the bloody sense is there in wishing well anybody who wants to abandon our country (maybe not yours judging from your past and the above comments)?

      They want to go, go, for whatever reasons. The faster, the more, the merrier. Clearly they have no loyalty or feelings for this country, so why bother? What more gracious?

      Yeah, yeah, yeah, spinning the old story of lost talent, lost geniuses, lost multi-millionaires, bla bla bla. Utter nonsense. Whatever the Government did in the past to bring back those absconded fellas was purely politics, trying to get votes. There is no merit, no justification in spending the money to do so.

      We have so many graduates in various discipline already, we even have a nuclear physicist and an astro-physicist since the 70s, The number must have increased in the last 30-40 years.

      What “talent”? Talent in talking like you do? Always glamorising Singapore at the expense of Malaysia? Naaah, That doesn’t require talent. Tons of those in DAP, products of Chinese schools are like those, including Lim Kit Siang, who, the records would show, was over-awed with the now dead Lee Kuan Yew.

    • And what do you mean saying “they have the determination to pursue their own future, without being subject to coercion, discrimination, prejudices and racial and religious intolerances”?

      The usual “wild, unsubstantiated and unjustified allegations”? In the same category as, or one of, the “Cina Bukit DAP, are you?

      Btw, it is surprising you have mentioned Sabah and Sarawak. As you might know, there are many Sabahans and Sarawakians working in Singapore, often in menial jobs as unskilled labour.

      So what about Sabahans and Sarawakians and Peninsular Malaysians looking for work in Singapore? Those honestly and sincerely seeking bread and butter for their families are OK.

      But those disgruntled, ungrateful ingrates who, having got citizenship right but unwilling to accept policies designed to bridge the economic and educational gap between the majority Malays and the 23% Chinese, and those who don’t respect and don’t want to live by the Constitution of Malaysia, including the sensitive Articles, want to abscond, I’ll repeat BD’s post title to you: Good riddance.

      • Merapatkan jurang ekonomi Melayu (yang menjadi majoriti penduduk) dengan Cina (yang ha nya 23% penduduk) –

        dari senarai billionnaires itu, jumlah nilai mereka:

        Melayu (2 orang, hampir 60% penduduk) – RM 3.8 billion
        Cina (11 orang, 23% penduduk) – RM 43.1 billion
        India (1 orang, 7% penduduk) – RM 11.7 billion

        Amat ketara jurang nya, amat jauh Melayu masih ketinggalan. Walau pun jika di bandingkan dengan kaum India.

      • It cannot and must not be said without incurring utmost rancour that the Malays are anything but Malays for not achieving the NEP target (and that at only 30% of corporate wealth) after 40 years.

        They have no business culture. Not muck knowledge and hardly any experience in business. Yet expected to compete with the Chinese who do, who have the knowledge and experience of doing business for thousands of years and whose children hear their parents talk in terms of kilograms, prices and profits since even when still in their mothers’ wombs.

        Competing with Chinese business people who have exclusive (not open to others but mutually helpful) clan associations, business and trade guilds of all sorts, providing or assisting in the procurement of loans, in manufacturing, wholesaling, distributing and retailing of goods and services. And the Malay businessmen can’t even get from them any credit terms, heck, not even the same prices as given to the Chinese businessmen.

        Yet the Chinese themselves have ups and downs in business to the extent that there is a Chinese saying that wealth lasts only 2-3 generations. China itself has been a suffering and miserable lot. The Chinese economy had suffered so badly that it attracted communism. Suffered worse under Mao Zedong such that China was treated like a pariah by the West until only 1-2 decades ago.

        And the NEP MUST continue and BE CONTINUED. The Chinese have had affirmative action treatment and all kinds of tongkats given by the British colonial masters and even by the Malay-led independent governments after Merdeka. Like the sugar monopoly to Robert Kuok and the easy-money lottery license to Vincent Tan. So many other kinds of tongkats until there are 11 Chinese billionaires worth RM43 billion and the 2 Malay billionaire have only 7% compared to those.

  3. Why the bloody hell should there be a quota? Or is this a concoction of the Anwarista TMI for propaganda or whatever purpose?

    And the source of the report is “one of the guards ..” at the Malaysian High Commission – what the fcuk. Not even the clerk collecting the applications in the section concerned at the MHC. How to believe?

    Yes, a very resounding GOOD RIDDANCE to those who applied to renounce their citizenship.

    But should there be “application and approval” for renunciation of citizenship? I don’t think so. This could be another concoction, twist, spin and slant of information by the nasty blog calling itself “news portal”, five of whose editors were charged for sedition.

    I think it’s a matter of declaring the act of doing so in front of some one with Commissioner of Oaths, Magistrate or Consular functions so that the act is duly witnessed and the renunciation is final.

    • Maybe the number mentioned and the time allotted for the citizenship renunciation business is that which the officer concerned can handle.

      If it’s a deliberate policy of the High Commission to avoid shame of so many renunciating, the High Commissioner should be told off. And asked to read books on loyalty and patriotism to country.

      Hope he reads this blog.

  4. Open a special counter at all DAP offices

    • Hahaha, good one!

  5. “Joseph said “Singapore can be restrictive politically… ”

    Bak kata Omputih, I rest my case.

  6. The size of the drop off box should be increased as there is increasing demand for jobs,scholarships, investments from Malaysian citozens in Singapore, with High SPEED rail and Tanjung Pagar jogging tracks.
    The High Com office in Singapore must work triple harder to speed up the approvals and processing the aplications as the applicants are so keen to be in Singapore and oso spend time and money in JB Nusajaya,Mersing,Endau,and Plus highway ,to Singapore Cloned Chief Minister Ah Beng .Petrol ver Cheep. .

    These ex malaysians have been already displaced by 8 million expats from the global diapora of 700,000 Banglas,150,000 rohuyngias-Myanmar,5000,Indian from Bangalore,,PRC young women,300,000 Indonesian maids/dish washers.kopitiam shop assistants,400,000 nepalese,Vietnamese workers,100,000 foreign permanent students,600,000 sabah natives with forged certificates,,Palestinian Iranians,Mongolians,Japanase and white Malaysia second home expats in Bukit Jalil Cyber jaya.

    There already 450,000 Malaysians in Singapore.
    High Commisioner, please help the applicants get their Singaporeanship quickly, we are really helping achieve ASEAN NESS of Super PM Najib .,a very close friend of the Lees.
    Thank you your excellency for your ASEAN Spirit.

  7. I was about to comment ,” good riddance,,” in TMI but I’m pretty sure it would not be published because its kosher to them.

    • … not kosher…

  8. The way for a better malaysia is by solving the problems of the malays. But in doing so, other citizens of different creed and background feel neglected. Its a sad day when people of a nation have ill-feelings towards one another. The only way to solve this problem is by more mingling. For every one smart chinese who go, 10 banglas, 2 indons, 3 rohingya, 2 iranians, 1 south american will have taken his/her place. And this is also not good. We know the problem and we know the solution but nothing is being addressed. A one school system would more than likely solve this issue but then you have non state actors like dong zong going against it. Malaysia has first class facilities but unfortunately, majority that inhibit it have 3rd world mentality. You can take them out of the kampung but the kampung will forever be in and this applies to all the races.

    • Hear, hear! One school system.

      Let’s ask the Dong Zong to go to Singapore.

  9. Do we Hear a Tinge of Jealousy Perhaps?!
    Unable to make the Grade and destined to rot ?!

    • Yes, many among those who cabut-ed were and are the mediocres. The so-called British Overseas Citizens (Malaccans and Penangites) who got stranded in UK after burning or throwing away their passports (wrongly advised that doing so would enhance their chances of being allowed permanent stay in UK) or renounced their citizenship at the Malaysian High Commission in London some years ago included one Penang Architect who could not make ends meet.

      The Australian border control TV series showed one cook lying his intention of entering Australia and got put on the first available plane back home.

      But now migration is the “in thing”. More than crossing the Mexican borders into US, the East Europeans migrate to Western Europe and Britain steadily since the past many years. Those Arabs from the Mediterranean states and even Africans brave the seas – and many died – to get into Italy, France etc. The Bengladeshis, Rohingyas head this way and Australia.

      So, it’s quite fitting for the Malaysians to migrate wherever they want and for whatever reasons they have. Let them. Help them migrate. No use having them who have no heart in this country. No need to bother such thing as loss of talent, capital and what. Very minimal. Can be replaced.

  10. I will not apologize for saying get lost from Malaysia to the bastards in the photo who hold the Jalur Gemilang upside down, even before reading the blog post in full.

    Those bastards have no clue about loyalty to country and about patriotism, and that, however opposed to the policies of the Government, no Malaysian should disrespect the national flag.

    They must be shooed out of the country – if still abroad, told not to return for good.

    • When holding Malaysian flags, they are Malaysians. When just among themselves, they are likely to be products of Chinese schools. When holding the flags upside down, they are disloyal, likely to have been influenced by DAP.

      Those bums would not have studied History. History became compulsory in schools only from 2013. Their parents and associates have no pride in Malaysian history as they will be reminded of their pendatang status. They might not even like their history in China, as professors have pointed out their hill tribes ancestry in south China where they originated from.

      Without a knowledge of History and of Malaysian history, how can they know about their being Stateless in this country for 150 years, the fight for independence, really appreciate the citizenship right agreed to for them, honour the Social Contract, and understand the drafting, the debating and the making of the Constitution into the highest set of laws in this country. Ipso facto, how can they know about loyalty and patriotism.

      Good that TS Muhyiddin made the landmark decision of making History compulsory in schools. Their future generations may be less of a problem in this country. But their present generation must be told to respect and live by the Constitution fully. Otherwise let them renounce citizenship by the truck loads, assisted in any way possible, encouraged and, the hard-headed, non-conforming and disloyal ones shooed out.

  11. You only know the value of you mother after you have lost her.

    • GGG, you mother? what do you mean? good riddance, they are not our mother..they are their mother-fookers? is taht how you treat your mothers? no wonder , the ofhs are full

      • Please refine your reading and language.

  12. To those ex-Malaysians who renounced citizenship to become Singaporean, it is a shame if you are still residing or holding properties in Malaysia just to frequent to Singapore for work and pleasure. You should no more have any relations to your former country.

  13. Loyalty is respecting the Constitution of the country and all the laws that emanate from it and living fully by them. If you cannot accept those, pack up and go. It’s that simple. No two ways about it.

    Patriotism is that extra inch, extra yard, extra mile than respecting and living by the Constitution and all the laws. It’s loving the country, more than just uttering the words, appreciating all the good, accepting the bad, warts and all. If you want to enjoy only all the good, unwilling to accept the bad and the warts, pack up and go.

    Loyalty and patriotism is not about asking what the country can do for you. It’s asking what you can do for your country. Even if just by speaking BM properly. And standing to attention when the national anthem is played. And when the national flag is being raised. If you don’t bother about those, pack up and go.

    Don’t be a baggage to this country. Don’t be a leech, a sucker, a nuisance, far less a traitor. Don’t just stay when the going is good but abscond when the going is bad. You get spitted at. Like those in neighbouring countries who have adopted local names, speak the local language fluently, wear the local dress in their daily lives but still get spitted after they pass by, because of lack of loyalty to the local community and hardly any feelings for the country.

    And when you leave, bring your baggage with you. The other kind of baggage – those closely associated with you but with the same mindset, thinking and attitude. Set up your own community when you reach destination. That way you won’t think of coming back.

    And don’t be like the King lost in battle and shouting, “My kingdom for a horse”, wanting to sell this country. Including by absconding to and residing in Singapore engaging in activities to weaken the Ringgit. We are not interested in you any more after that, at most, only throw shit over you. It’s a cruel world. Made so by you and the likes of you.

    • respecting the Constitution of the country INCLUDING THE SENSITIVE ARTICLES THAT ARE PROTECTED BY THE SEDITION ACT.

  14. HERE’S a joke going around in Singapore as the island republic gears up for a general election in which the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) is expected to face its widest challenge in history.

    It starts with a Singaporean telling the authorities that he wishes to give up his citizenship to become a Malaysian.

    The Little Napoleons in PAP were horrified when they heard this strange request. They have heard of Singaporeans wanting Australian, New Zealand, American, British or Swiss citizenships but asking for Malaysian citizenship was unheard of.

    Health concerns: Public hearings to seek the views of the affected people should be done before projects like the rare earth processing plant in Pahang are approved as the people have the biggest say as stakeholders. — EPA
    So, disgusted with the thought, they felt that the matter should be brought to the personal attention of Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.

    The veteran leader, on hearing this, hit the roof and ordered that the man be grilled by the Home Ministry officials.

    It was felt that this guy must be a threat to national security and racial harmony to have such warped thinking. He wants to move to a country where vehicles are hijacked? It was unbelievable!

    The Singaporean was told to turn up at the Home Ministry where he was asked the first question.

    “Sir, why do you want to be a Malaysian? In Singapore, we have everything. You have a nice HDB flat; can’t complain, right?”

    The man thought hard and then grudgingly replied: “Can’t complain.”

    Then the officer expanded on the question: “Okay, in Singapore there’s almost no crime, the city is clean, the public transport is good, and there is no corruption. Can’t complain, right?”

    This also stumped the Singaporean who nodded and replied: “Yes, can’t complain.”

    The official decided to reprimand him and asked him bluntly: “So, what’s wrong with you that you want to give up your Singapo­rean citizenship for a Malaysian one?”

    This time, the man smiled and replied: “Sir, over there they CAN complain about anything and everything.”

    • Hahaha, good one.

      I have only one complaint about your story – in Singapore, the officials never address the citizens as “Sir”. hehe

  15. BD,

    Spot on!

    Let’s be real! If these selfcentred and/or disloyal kiasus want to leave, let them be.

    Look at the realism
    1. These are the lots who are always complaining
    2. Most probably, most of them are not part or willing to be in service of others but themselves
    3. Likely, they hv the tendency to blame others or find fault instead of be part of the solution
    4. They are the least likely to volunteer for duty and offer their own lives to be put at risk with the armed forces or police BUT they’d hv the loudest rhetorical incessant barks

    Maybe amongst these kiasus, they can set up firms to do this ingrate and selfcentered placement to outside Malaysia anywhere. Charge them GST!

    • And death duty when their business fails.

  16. Recently there was a debate on TV on the issue of China overtaking USA as the leading economic power. One participant said that there is no way China can overtake the USA. How do you know was the question. He replied, for China the talent pool in 1.4 Billion. For the USA the talent pool is the whole world-7.5 Billion.
